There was an ask to @lance-mcpain-is-my-mcgain for a car crash klance fic, but she opened it up to be answered by anyone. I got insparation, so I wrote it. It doesn’t have very much klance, but its there.
Lance was just on his way home from a race. He had been driving with keith, who came as a spectator, and they were nearly home. Lance had been following Shiro and Allura’s car. Shiro was also in the race, as the cross country team captain, and Allura was there to cheer them on. Lance came to a complete stop at the sign, looked both ways, and continued on. From the corner of his eye Lance saw a large blur of bright, shiny red.
His instincts took over and his foot jammed the gas pedal down as hard as he could, his vision tunneling, and his mind chanting “go, gO, GO, GET OUT OF THERE!”. He heard the engine work to speed up and a shrieking screech that came from somewhere outside of the car. Time sped to an incredible rate as the world was suddenly spinning after a sharp jerking motion.
All too soon the spinning slowed and Lance’s car was facing toward the ditch, inching closer and closer to the light post by the road. After only a moment, Lance’s mind started working again.
“The car is still moving, stop it” Lance put on the breaks, then shifted into park.
“You were just hit. Who knows what was damaged in the car, it could explode with the engine still running” Lance turned the car off and pulled out the key.
“Your head feels kind of funny, your ears are ringing a bit. You are likely going into shock. If not, you likely will be soon” Lance took a few deep breaths.
“Other than possible shock, you have no injuries. Keith was in the car with you” Lance looked to his right.
“Keith is in the car with you. Is he hurt?” Lance studied Keith, seeing no visible injuries, he had to ask, “Keith?” but there was no response. Lance tried again, “Keith? Hey, buddy, are you alright?” and this time he was answered.
“I…” Keith paused. “I’m alright. I’m not hurt…” Keith seemed a bit out of it, but the response was enough to sooth Lance’s mind for now as he continued checking his surroundings.
“You were hit, that means there was another car. That means there were more people.” Lance unbuckles his seatbelt and opens his door. Trying to stand up, he notices how weak he feels and sits back down. After only a few seconds, Lance pulls himself up and shakily steps towards the fancy red car that had hit his. “Hey! Are you ok? Are you hurt?” Lance barely managed to keep standing, but his knees locked and his eyes would not waiver from their target.
“Ya, I’m ok, but what about my car? WHAT ABOUT MY CAR?! Do you SEE THIS?? Do you SEE WHAT YOU DID? LOOK AT MY CAR!!” The driver, an old man, bellowed. He mentioned nothing of the woman, likely his wife, who had been seated right next to him.
Lance took a few steps back, as if the words had physically pushed him, and leaned on his car. “There is someone else in the car. The lady hasn’t said anything yet,” his mind reminded him.
“Are you ok? Ma’am? Are you hurt Ma’am?” Lance called out as the man continued his incessant ranting.
The woman nodded, “I’m fine, I’m not hurt,” she rushed the words out before hurrying to calm her husband. She got him to quiet down for the most part, but he would still yell out every now and again.
Lance slid down into his seat. It was as if everything caught up to him as he choked out a sob, mind falling out of its checklist-like state and catching up with the emotion of it all. He looked to the side, reached out, placed a hand gently on either side of Keith’s face and turned it to look at himself. “Keith?” He questioned.
“Are you really ok? You’re not hurt at all? Really truly?”
“I’m not hurt. Really, Lance. Really truly. What about you?”
“I’m fine. No, not fine, but I’m not hurt.”
There was a moment of silence before they both pulled each other in for a tight embrace. They sat in each others’ presence, soaking up the heat of their bodies, the strength in their arms, the fact that they are both still alive and well. When their silence was broken, it was Keith who had spoken first.
“I could have died,” Keith sobbed, “You- we could have died!”
“We both could have- we could have died…”
The boys only clung to each other tighter as the fact settled in their minds.
“We are so lucky to be alive right now” Neither boy is sure which said it, but it rang true in both of their hearts. They pulled apart, holding each other by the shoulders, and stared at one another. They were both silently crying as they struggled to get used to this new information.
Keith and Lance each leaned back in their seats, taking turns checking up on each other every minute, making sure the other still hadn’t been injured, no matter what logic tells them. The minutes passed by without fail, and the boys relished in the fact that they could have died, but didn’t. They relished in the fact that they could have been sent to a hospital in critical condition, but they weren’t. Mostly, the buys relished in the pure fact that each of them was, undoubtedly alive.
Thank you for reading! Please let me know what you guys think!
Lovi and I were skyping and look at all these fanfic writer AU headcanons
Arakita is just crack. He can take the most depressing show ever and make you laugh about it. Mainly because he is the snark master.
Fukutomi isn’t so keen on pairings but has a ton of AUs that aren’t too long, good quality and he updates often.
Izumida is fluff. So much fluff. Fluff without plot for miles around.
Manami writes angst and only angst because your tears sustain him.
Shinkai is hurt/comfort but sometimes dives way off the deep end into angst-ville. like WAY OFF.
Toudou writes tooth-rotting sugary sweetness most of the time with lots of family themes.
Kinjou only writes for 2-3 pairings. But they are super high quality, long and amazing series of those 2-3 pairings.
Makishima writes really quality fic but leaves huge gaps in between updates.
Tadokoro takes every fandom ever and turns it into coffee shop AU. He never writes anything but oneshots and it’s a ton of barista/absolutely any other job ever.
Aoyagi doesn’t write fics but draws fanart of his favorites and puts his favorite quotes in the description. He tends to promo lesser known fics.
Teshima almost exclusively writes for rarepairs. He takes a lot of requests.
Imaizumi has a hard time getting inspiration so he uses story prompts. But when he does have inspiration it’s like 10k words in a night. He wrote songfics when he first started out and now regrets it.
Naruko writes the shitty parody nsfw fics. He has used the word “meat wand” before and has a goal to use as many awful synonyms for genitalia as possible.
Onoda has a 50k word Love Hime fic that’s super popular and his fans refer to him as Love Ouji. Getting kudos on your story from him is just “omgkghsksjkj”; like getting acknowledged by him is the ultimate sign of ya done good.
Sugimoto writes pretty good fics but only has like 10 followers.
(optional but encouraged response: what kind of writer are you? are you a teshima? a makishima?)
How we created the Wailing Stone sound effects for “The Message”!
For the Steven Universe episode “The Message”, creator Rebecca Sugar and sound editor Tony Orozco had to create some cool effects for the wailing stone. Rebecca is playing on a modified Omnichord and Tony is jamming on effect pedals. In the final version, you can hear a voice singing right before the car battery explodes. That was Rebecca singing!
This week in Siren and Lovi don’t know when to quit with their headcanons: Pokemon AU!
Onoda and Miki to run the Pokemon daycare. They give you berries if you bring in a fairy-type Pokemon. You bring in a ditto and some other Pokemon, Miki knows exactly whats going on wink wink. Onoda just sits there smiling because he’s that guy that never notices until eggs show up.
Makishima trains bug types. He has an Ariados and a Galvantula. Godspeed against all those additional-effect moves.
Fukutomi train steel types. He has a Mawile and a Klefti because there is no arguing with that fairy/steel resistance.
Izumida had a Gyarados that he raised all on his own from a Magikarp. They became strong together!
Shinkai is a water-type gym leader but he runs a rabbit farm in his spare time. Need an Azurill? Buneary? Bunnelby? He’s got you covered. Take one, seriously bro’s got rabbits for days.
Midousuji has poison-types. His starter was a Zubat that mom gave him that he loved into a Crobat.
Teshima and Aoyagi are the ultimate tag team. Aoyagi has a team of illusion-based Pokemon (Ditto, Zoroark, and Stantler). Teshima has all psychic-types (Meowstic, Gallade, and Xatu).
Naruko and Imaizumi are rivals but it doesn’t really work out because Imaizumi trains ghost-types and Naruko trains fighting-types but ghosts are immune to fighting and vice-versa. It never ends.
Tadokoro is one of those trainers who goes around planting berries everywhere. His team is Urasring, Beartic, and Pangoro. They protect beginning trainers from potential dangerous wild Pokemon.
Toudou is, but what else, a contest star. His Milotic has been trained up from a wild Feebas into a beauty. He breeds on the side and is sad when people don’t want to adopt a Feebas until it evolves.
Manami loves big flying-types so he can ride on them. He has a Drimblim that tried to carry him off as a Drifloon. Altaria acts as his pillow 90% of the time.
Arakita only trains cat Pokemon. He doesn’t care if they’re not strong, he’s not aiming for the Pokemon league. Espeon, Delcatty, Purugly, and Liepard~
Ishigaki works as an assistant professor. He’ll hand out starter Pokemon, pokeballs, and potions. Give this man a raise, he deserves it.
Kinjou has a Serperior. He’s an ace trainer that takes in abandoned Pokemon and helps them find new homes. Might donate them to Ishigaki if they’re young enough to be starter Pokemon. Give him a raise, too.
More Lovi and Siren skype adventures: What if the yowapeda characters were in a rpg au?
Machimiya: That character you meet right at the very beginning who tries to guide you through the starting area via very annoying speeches
Sugimoto: He’s very experienced, so he’ll help you pick out your character class and give you your starting moves. Eventually you’ll get a quest to go find him again and he’ll give you the final skill or smth via spellbook.
Tadokoro: Samurai class. Runs into battle screaming, and announces all his attacks. They all have lengthy names.
Kinjou: Paladin class. Throw whatever you want at him, he can take all your hits and still have enough health to whoop you.
Makishima: The healer who’s always asking “why don’t y’all just use your potions”. He can see that stockpile you’re saving. Stop that. Just use your potions. He wants to take a nap.
Naruko: The bard. Used to be salty about his character class before he realized he could use his skills to piss off Imaizumi.
Imaizumi: Assassin class. Always tries to take down Naruko to no avail because Naruko can just keep healing and has forcefields. The neverending battle.
Onoda: The white mage who wants nothing more to follow in Makishima’s footsteps and for his friends to stop fighting. Always on the sidelines telling everything to chill out.
Aoyagi: A summoner. Teshima is his summoning, a kitsune. They used to just do the battle thing together, but now Aoyagi summons him to hang out, they’re best friends.
Midousuji: The monster demon who was supposed to destroy the entire world but then decided “nah”. Runs around causing general havoc until the ending battle, where he’ll grudgingly help out.
Fukutomi: Aka the Final Boss, the turtle-dragon. aka he really didn’t mean to cause so much trouble, this is all just a terrible misunderstanding. Thinks everyone is fighting because it creates closer bonds.
Ishigaki: Aka the one who screwed everything up. Everything was going just fine with the world until he thought he’d be cool and accidentally summoned that demon.
Arakita: That one character who is always handing out freebies before missions. “I don’t like you, I just happen to be here. I like hanging out in front of dungeons. Now scram.”
Manami: That weird hermit who lives in the middle of nowhere and will send you on bizarre quests for even more bizarre items. But if you actually manage to complete those quests, he’ll give you rare items.
Toudou: He is royalty. Does nothing but sell expensive skins and items. Probably will insult you in delightfully underhanded ways unless you pay him compliments first.
Aya: A princess. Faked her kidnapping to get some alone time but SOMEONE keeps hiring guilds to go find her. Just wants to play a game of cards with Miki, the friendly demon.
Shinkai: Beastmaster, king of the forest. Hear him roar. Except not really, the animals are sleeping. Do not disturb.
Izumida: Shinkai’s acolyte and gunslinger extraordinaire. Kinds sorta maybe terrified of Shinkai and his army of forest animals.
