Am I like the only one who has imagined Lance finding Keith in the control room with that galaxy simulation thing open just trying to take it all in, searching for something, anything maybe nothing, to find Shiro.
And Lance finally breaks the air and lets Keith know he’s there “Keith? What are you doing up, you should be resting-” but his voice trails off when he realizes Keith is crying. The indestructible boy finally collapses, sliding down to the floor against a control panel, voice breaking and tears falling he just barely stutters out “He’s gotta be here somewhere right? We gotta find him, Lance- we h-have to find him.”
Lance just stands there at first not knowing whether or not Keith is okay with being comforted, but eventually, he decides to slink over and sit next to him, his arms scooping his friend nearly in his lap, “Yeah buddy we’ll find him, shhh, we’ll find him.”
And none of the other paladins comment on finding them in the morning, and they definitely don’t comment on the evident tear tracks dried out on Keith’s face, however, everyone is silently more compliant and try not to be too harsh on him from there out.
Like seriously am I the only one?
