Keith making an impression on him the first time they meet, Shiro feeing drawn to him not just because of his skill but there’s just something about Keith, he wants to learn more about him and guide the potential he sees.
Keith constantly impressing him and Shiro just getting more bewildered. Getting to know Keith, how he isn’t the cold ~cool~ aloof guy that everyone assumes he is but actually really warm, friendly, and kind of goofy, learning about his past, feeling like Keith is the most unique person he’s ever met.
Him quickly realizing he’s fallen for this little punk he’s taken under his wing
Not being sure about how Keith feels and not wanting to make their friendship weird so trying to suppress his feelings
He and Keith spending practically all their free time together, some people even ask Shiro if they’re dating. Shiro starts to hope maybe this is more than a friendship for Keith.
Things getting awkward when Shiro is chosen for the Kerberos mission, an unspoken tension to their relationship. Shiro can’t figure out if it’s just because Keith is worried or if Keith wants to address their relationship before he leaves, and he finds himself too afraid to bring it up.
Finally Shiro tries to drop heavy hints the night before the Kerberos mission but Keith doesn’t seem to pick up on them (because Keith has abandonment issues he feels unworthy of love, assumes the idea of Shiro thinking of him as more than a friend is just wishful thinking).
Regretting he didn’t just tell Keith while in Galra prison, thinking of the last hug they had to comfort him in his cold prison cell
When Shiro returns, things are different. Keith is different. Shiro can’t quite place it but Keith assuming he was dead for a year has made him more distant. Shiro craves for how close they used to be which is why it’s almost always Shiro initiating physical affection.
Shiro still not knowing what to do about any of it, but thankfully having the bigger problem of saving the universe to focus on. He’s just glad Keith is with him.
“Since they’d left Los Angeles, she’d done nothing to indicate she wanted to repeat their one kiss. And Kit had found that he didn’t either. Not that he didn’t like Livvy, or find her pretty. But something seemed off about it now-as if it were somehow wrong.”
YEEEESSS HE WILL FINALLY REALIZE THAT HE IS IN LOVE WITH TY??
“Maybe it was the fact that he didn’t know if he wanted to be a Shadowhunter at all”
Kit, my baby, I love you… BUT RLLY ARE YOU BLIND OR SOMETHING
Ok, this is just a doodle, but as all my babies…I love him very dearly. It was funny and quite complicated, and long… because every time I started some lines or shades, other duties came in and I were obliged to interrupt the work.
A thing that annoys me at epic level!
Anyway, thanks to Dr. Lang -Tom for the reference pose.
What you see isn’t a camera filter, or some app effect for editing…is just my paper sheet flooded by late afternoon sunlight. And I love the way it hits the paper surface, emphasizing the grain…
I’ve just imagined Loki fallen asleep after one of his long nights of studies and reading, in the library.
Not one of my best drawings but not so bad anyway…
