i bet he looks good on the dancefloor

Voltron fic recs, the first

Yoo, lets get this show on the road! I’ve had a number of requests for this and since I very obviously have a Fanfic Problem, I thought I’d inflict it on the rest of you poor sods. 

As with any rec list, please pay attention to the tags and warnings <3

A Fish and A Bird - 13K; klance; Lance has a boyfriend. Lance does not realize he has a boyfriend. Keith, understandably, does not react well.

i bet you look good on the dancefloor - 43K; klance; Lance McClain’s dancing career begins and ends with Keith. Keith just wants to find out what Lance’s deal is.

The Coxcomb - 56K (WIP); shklance; Lance takes the job for the money. Love is apparently a package deal. [AKA the stripper AU you didn’t know you needed]

The Fox and the Hounds - 21K (WIP); shklance; Lance McClain, better known as Blue, is the greatest thief in the history of the world; no treasure is safe from him. Stealing the hearts of two beautiful detectives, though? That gets a little hairier.

call me, beep me - 85K; klance; (00:31) Do you think she gave me the wrong number on purpose? [Wherein Lance messages the wrong number and things kind of snowball from there…]

Homesick at Space Camp - 33K (WIP); klance; “He can’t marry the princess because he’s already married to me!” For the sake of intergalactic diplomacy Lance and Keith have to pretend to be married. And they have to be convincing about it…

Klanco's *updated* Klance Rec

Flames of Ice
http://archiveofourown.org/works/7258417
Finding out he was bisexual wasn’t a friendly experience. Solution? Be as girl-oriented as possible, use spare time to make clever comebacks and rely on sarcasm to save the day. At least that was what Lance figured would work at age eleven.

We’ll Make It, You And Me

Broken Rules

Lance couldn’t believe it. He was sitting in the pro-bending arena. If anyone from the Garrison saw him here, if anyone recognized him as the waterbending noble from the Northern Water Tribe, he’d be ruined.

WIP inspired by the AU fic “i bet you look good on the dancefloor” by xShieru on Ao3. There is a scene where Keith dances in heels and I just kind of…. went wild with it instead of keeping it true to the fic? My friend who prompted me to do this loves it though so why not.

“What a goddamn tease. How’s he even real?”

I was slain today by the first chapter of this fic and I couldn’t help but draw this moment because hollllyyyyy goooosshhh 

please go read it you won’t regret it

Why had Harry ever questioned his attraction to men? Malfoy looked like everything Harry had ever dreamed about. All of the stuff that Malfoy liked to wear – the nail varnish, the beads and thin shirts – somehow just drew attention to the fact that the wiry body underneath was distinctly masculine. And although the way Malfoy moved was graceful, there was nothing feminine about it. There was a rawness to his sensuality, an aggression underpinning everything that he did, and it left Harry dry-mouthed and breathless

I decided to call Ben, and omfg. If I go without calling him for a while it’s like I’m losing air. Should I be worried or.

BUT HE SANG ME PART OF “I BET YOU LOOK GOOD ON THE DANCE FLOOR” BY THE ARCTIC MONKEYS AHHHASDFGHJKL.

And we talked about The Clash and Sex Pistols and Nirvanna and Queens Of The Stone Age and Sound Garden and omfgSNAklsndofx. He said he’d try to call tomorrow.

Rose brushed confidently through the dancers in the club, her interest having been snagged on the man by the bar, waiting for his drink. Leaning against the freshly polished wood over to the bartender, she ordered herself a drink, sipping it politely and eyeing over the man standing near to her. He was attractive enough to warrant her flashing him a flirtatious smile, before turning her interest elsewhere, seeming to be dismissive. Playing hard to get had always worked in the past, so why not now?
