Lance: Happy birthday, Shiro
Shiro: Thanks babe~
Lance: So what you wanna do today?
Shiro: Mmmm~ (nuzzling closer to Lance’s chest)
Lance: (giggles) Cuddle it is

When the ever so stressful bae wants to cuddle

This is a part of something that centers on Shiro’s birthday… anyway, take the first one that is mildly finished 😬

anonymous asked:

This may be old hat, but I have seen people talk about how Shiro clearly favors Keith to the detriment of other team members. Namely, Lance. I don't feel like this very IC, but I wanted to get other opinions and I enjoy your meta.

This is something in fanon that’s always kind of bothered me honestly. I have a whole meta here about how Shiro protects Lance and cares for him throughout Sendak’s takeover. I honestly don’t understand how people could say Shiro doesn’t care enough about Lance when Shiro was literally willing to get captured and tortured again for his sake. “But that was one time!” some fans will say. As if putting your life on the line and getting a few thousand volts of electricity surging down your spine isn’t a big deal apparently?? Shiro cares for Lance, he does. He could’ve won that fight, but he threw it for Lance’s sake. 

Something that I repeatedly see people cite as a sign Shiro “favors” Keith over Lance is their talk before the BOM. Shiro decides he’s going to take Keith with him, and Lance lashes out. He claims Keith is unable to stay calm, and yet, he’s the one losing his temper. And this is only the latest in a long line of instances in which their supposed “rivalry” is really just a one-sided game where Lance is the instigator and Keith repeatedly has to remain calm and either try to make peace or just tune him out. Throughout season 2, he really snaps back. In contrast, Lance has demonstrated again and again that he is childish and self-centered, that he himself has a quick temper. And yet, he’s quick to direct the blame at Keith. Who handles it quite gracefully, might I add.

So yeah, anyway, Shiro was right. It was a good call to bring Keith instead of Lance. But because Lance is often placed upon a pedestal, somehow not coddling him 24/7 can be misconstrued as abuse. I think another reason people are so quick to say Shiro doesn’t treat Lance the way he deserves is because he doesn’t talk Lance through all his insecurity issues. But you know what? If Lance wants to talk about it, then he has to bring it up. The only two people that have actually addressed that directly are Allura and Keith. And both of them only do so after Lance brings it to their attention. If Lance doesn’t speak up or keeps up an act, how is Shiro supposed to see the signs and help? 

More importantly, people act as though all of Lance’s insecurities are somehow Shiro’s fault. Why is that? Shiro has been imprisoned and tortured for a year. His PTSD and consequential paranoia, depression, and anxiety are far more difficult to deal with than Lance feeling upstaged. And yet, Shiro would never presume that this was somehow everyone else’s burden, or that they owed him more because of it. So why should Lance merit special treatment? Yes, Shiro isn’t as attentive with Lance and Hunk. But that’s because they’re so much more well adjusted. 

I don’t mean this badly, it’s just a fact. They came from good, loving homes. Hunk feels fondly enough about his family to want to return, and seems to have no baggage associated it. Lance meanwhile we know was the youngest sibling and somewhat spoiled. They had it good before. There’s nothing wrong with that. Characters don’t have to have traumatic backstories to be deep or meaningful. But this also means that these two aren’t dealing with the same shit as Keith and Pidge. They don’t have Keith’s abandonment issues or the shared grief he and and Pidge feel over losing their family. These two need more reassurance and guidance and comfort, and Shiro is of course there to provide it. 

Bizarrely enough, it also feels like fans are unable to believe that Shiro has friends. Lance treats Hunk significantly better than Keith from day one, and in fact forces his personal vendetta on Keith for purely selfish reasons. But Keith is expected to graciously accept this because “it’s just from Lance’s insecurities.” Meanwhile, Shiro clearly has nothing against Lance and has never singled him out or treated him poorly out of nowhere. Yet he’s accused of favoritism. This favoritism is really just friendship. He knew Keith before Kerberos, was so close with him he literally brought Keith to the launch instead of his own family. They’ve clearly been side by side for a long time, long enough for Keith to develop an intense desire to be with him when he shuts out everyone else. Long enough for Shiro to not be surprised that it’s Keith of all people who shows up to save him. 

Romantic or not, “Shiro and Keith have the closest relationship.” In Joaquim’s own words, that’s canon (source). So of course their interactions will be different from everyone else’s. That gravity and vulnerability is unique to them alone. And honestly? Removing that link is clearly detrimental to both their coping mechanisms. I think it’s selfish for people to expect Shiro to either push Keith away or pull everyone else in. He’s not ready for something like that, and it shouldn’t be forced on him. Everyone else is allowed to have best friends or romance or whatever’s happening here. Why can’t Shiro? Why is that so wrong? And, to take this in another direction–were Lance to somehow become Black Paladin, does that mean he has to distance himself from Hunk? That he can’t still be interested in Allura? No, I don’t think so. 

And I mean, Shiro does trust Lance, you know? He does still take Lance’s input into account. When Lance says he wants to try to make that impossible shot in Beta Traz, Shiro lets him. Shiro trusts him. And when he makes it? Shiro compliments him! And the reaction is immediate–Lance is clearly thrilled. So yes, Shiro does think Lance is capable of great things. Yes, Shiro lets Lance know when he does a good job and wants to be supportive of him. That much is clear.

I think the other reason why people assume Shiro is somehow biased against Lance because he made Keith Black Paladin instead. And, I’m going to be completely straightforward here–the idea of Black Paladin Lance just makes no sense to me. Neither in the narrative nor thematically and it certainly doesn’t fit with his character development. The thing is, I think people have lost sight of what Black Paladin really means. It’s not a popularity contest. It doesn’t mean you’re the “best” and you shouldn’t just want your fav to have that spot. Lance is far more suited to the role of a Red Paladin, as reflected in his parallels with Alfor, his talk with Allura, and his character arc. To quote my other meta:

It’d be a huge setback and really detract from his character development. When he sits in the Black Lion for “like half a varga” Lance’s main motivation here is seeking his own glory. His character arc is about learning to grow past that and see the bigger picture and realize everyone in Voltron is part of a whole and you’re not better because you’re the leader. 

The way he treated Keith earlier in that episode was also incredibly malicious considering the guy was grieving the loss of the person he loved most. And Lance still has the audacity to spit on Shiro’s last “dying” will and continually provoke Keith until he lashes out or leaves. Learning to see the wrong in that and instead supporting Keith was a huge step for him, and I don’t see why he’d ever still take Black after that. 

It also makes no sense thematically. When Keith steps into Black again, he says, “I know this is what you wanted for me, Shiro. But I’m not you. I can’t lead them like you.” And Lance just goes, “This is your moment.” Keith’s concern first and foremost is with what Shiro wanted and what’s best for the team. Lance just wants to steal the spotlight. He has no intrinsic connection to the Black lion through his bond with Shiro the way Keith does. He also doesn’t have those thematic parallels to Zarkon the way Keith does–instead, he’s recognized as being very similar to Alfor. 

People act like Shiro and Keith stole away Lance’s chance at leadership, but Shiro wasn’t even considering anyone else. Lance was never even in the running. 

The thing is, I kind of understand where people are coming from. To my knowledge, a lot of fans find Lance to be the most relatable, and reflect on him–likewise, I often do this with Keith. But anyway, people really feel for Lance and see their own insecurities through him. But that still doesn’t mean everyone should drop everything to immediately focus on him. Shiro is a good leader. Shiro cares about all of his paladins. Shiro by no means has anything against Lance. But that doesn’t mean he should be given the spot as Black Paladin just because he’s Lance, or that Shiro should be micromanaging his and the other paladins’ emotional needs 24/7 when he’s just trying to get by himself. I understand people feeling for Lance and wanting to see him reach his full potential. But that doesn’t mean everyone has to bow down to him. In fact, going by his daydreams and personal arc–this would significantly negate a good amount of his character development. 

Foundation

Some langst i thought up of

•Lance is jealous that Keith has Shiro , Pidge has Hunk , Coran has allura . He felt left out and unfit for the group . He truly left like a 7th wheel .

•Lance is still insecure and never had reassurance , so he thought it would be best to just leave and go back to earth .

•he thinks leaving would be the option since allura had taken over the blue lion . Plus he would be able to see his family again . (Though he doesnt really want to leave because the palladins are also his family)

•he decides to pack at night and he goes up
To blue to say goodbye and tells her she will always be his lion and he goes to red and thanks her for accepting him and his voice starts to crack and ends up crying and he says take care of keith cause he can be hot headed

 •He went inside his space pod and took one last sigh and remembered all the times he had with his friends . How he looked up to Shiro , How he will miss his bestfriends cooking , being a brother figure to Pidge while still looking for matt , becoming good friends with allura , seeing coran as his uncle and lastly , how now overcame the rival stage with keith and became close friends with him .

• He hesistates for a moment , but continues anyway . His last words were “ I know you guys can do it . Goodluck on defending the universe" and rides off into space .  

 •Next morning  , they were to report to a meeting to discuss their next attack on lotor . Once all of them was there , they questioned the absence of Lance . They probably thought he overslept or totally forgot about the meeting , so they decided to go to his room .  They knock on his door , but he there was no answer , so they all went inside . They looked around and he was no where to he found , but they saw a paper on his bed that says . “Im sorry I couldnt tell you any of this , but I left to go back to earth . I miss my family . I- I really appreciate the time we all had together and defending the universe with you guys” . P.S , Allura , take care of blue for me .  

 • 3 days has passed , Lance not knowing where he is , not knowing how many light years he is  from earth . The silence of the space pod , was uncomfortable for him . He enjoyed hearing the laughter and the voices from his friends , feeling a tear form in his eyes he tells himself , “its okay , its okay he wipes his tears and says

• “dont regret any of this . Theyre better off without me ”

 •His space pod is running out of fuel and hes also running out of supplies to eat . He had no option , but to go to the closest planet . Strangely enough it was the balmera planet . 

 •He landed safely in the balmera planet , he looked around to see the planet was lively and safe . He was shocked when he heard a girl say “hey , arent you hunks friend?” He turned around to see shay . 

, he remembered her when they were fighting and protecting the balmera from getting destroyed . Also , Hunk wouldnt stop talking about her and how grateful he was to have met her . The boy was totally inlove with her . He smiled as memories flood in of him and hunk in the kitchen , while hunk was preparing to make a special meal , Lance was just sitting ,  staring at his bestfriend prepare the meal while , he talked about the love of life . He was talking about how Shay was a very nice person and hunk had such a soft look on his face while talking about her . and Lance just smiled at his bestfriend , glad that hes found someone he was fond of . He also questions if he , himself wil also find someone he can talk about so proudly and fondly of . Then Lance , remembered how Allura and Keith were getting closer and how bothered he was by it . 

“I hate his stupid mullet so much “ Hunk turned around and gave Lance a weird look . “Are you talking about Keith ?” Lance nodded , it was him alright his rival per say , although they were getting closer to one  another so we had no say of where their relationship stand was at the moment . 

Hunk asked “do you actually hate him? “ Lance looked at Hunk weirdly , he was caught off guard with the question . Honestly , he never did , he never hated the guy . not at all . its quite the opposite , he respected him a lot due to his abilities  , he was envious of him . he would never say this to Keiths face , but hes axtually glad to be his rival . His thoughts were interupted when Shay was waving a hand in front of him , asking him if hes alright . 

“O-ohh What was that ? ,  sorry I was thinking about something” Lance sighed , hunk would be so jealous of him right now , he’d been dying to see Shay . Shay looked at lance with concern , but with a tint of curiosity , “Are the other palladins with you ? “ Shay was looking at Lance for an answer , Lance just looked at her , sweat dropped down his forehead . how was he going to explain all of this to her ? . 

“Oo-oh no just me and my handsome self ✨” Lance tried to hide the the overcoming feeling of  sadness and guilt with a smile . Shay noticed this a bit , but decided to nodd it off . “Oh I see , so what brings you here palladin?” . Lance was stuck in a turmoil , should he tell her ? Should he tell her hes just visiting ? It wouldnt be bad to tell her right? She had no way to contact Hunk so he wouldnt know and they wouldnt come looking for him . He needed to leave fast . 

“Why would he leave us ? “ Hunk slid back on the couch , looking up at the ceiling , worried about what happened to his bestfriend , if hes okay , if the galrans captured him . A lot of negative thoughts circled his mind. He knew his bestie wouldnt just up and leave . He knew something was wrong . “well he did say in the letter , he missed his family , so thats what motivated him to leave “ Pidge replied as she was typing on her computer trying to get coordinates of Lotors where abouts .  “I know that , but I think theres more to this than what we see “ Shiro replied as he walked back and forth across the room trying to think of ways to get a hold of Lance , also worried about his safety . Keith was silent throughout this , but his mind is jumbled of thoughts that occurred during the bedroom scene . Now recalling it , Lance did go to him , saying he would step down since he wasnt needed . They were getting closer or so he thought . Everytime he was getting closer to Lance , Lance goes farther away and Keithwas now angry . Lance didnt tell him anything about leaving . His head hurt . Did lance think he was useless to the team? Did he feel inferior ? His train of thoughts were interrupted when Hunk shot up from his slouch position , and screamed “ We have to go find him” everybody looked at Hunk , they knew he was serious . He was , Lances bestfriend afterall . 

“But Lotor can be roaming around and we need to find him . We dont have time to look for Lance” Keith lashed out . Keith now regretting what he said , he was angry at Lance for leaving the group . . Just leaving a piece of letter behind and went on with his life . What about his duty as a palladin? He thought Lance was being selfish . His own selfishness will cause the group to be in disaray . He looked at Hunk and saw a painful look on Hunks face  . Hunk sighed and replied . &ldquo ,no one stopped you when you tried to look for your brother (Shiro) , but you cant stop me when im looking for my bestfriend . If you guys arent coming with me , im going alone “ Hunk was determined to find Lance . He knew something was wrong , he knew Lance enough to know when he did something irrational , it was due to his inner turmoil . All that said he needed to go look for him . 

“Um my space pod kind of ran out of gas , but Ill just stay here for a bit to rest and look for some supplies , if thats alright with you guys?“ nbsp;“ Lance looked at Shay for an answer just responded  “"oh okay , please come, youre more than welcome , meet the other balmerians , we will be happy to help , since you saved us “ Lance was happy Shay was here . She was a calming person to be around , and also glad that theyre giving him hospitality . Also , he was all alone to a kind of new enviornment so , he wasnt fully relaxed yet . 

Keith looked at Hunk and wanted to apologize  , but was already walking away .  Keith got up to catch up to Hunk , only to for the both of them to be stopped by Allura .
“You guys just , please lets all calm down and talk this through , I know we are all sad about Lance , but we need to make a plan before actually going out to look for him ”

They both stopped in their tracks , surprised that Allura isnt going to tell them that we need to move on , just like she did with Shiro , but to come up with a plan to help look for him .

“I dont want him to end up alone , hurt and discomfort . I dont want him to go through what Shiro went through , so lets take precautions .” They all looked at Allura and smiled . Shiro went through a lot and went through more . She didnt want the same thing happening to Lance . She became good friends with Lance and she didnt want this friendship to tarnish . Moving on didnt help Shiro and the team . It made them mature yes , but the wound was still there .

Hunk started to walk back and Keith stopped him and apologized “Hunk , look , im sorry , I - it came out wrong and I didnt mean to say it that way ” Hunk also apologized for acting irrational “its okay buddy , and im sorry to , I just , I just worried about him . They gave each other weak smiles and walked back to the couch .

“Iv never seen Hunk so serious before , nice job keef ” Keith was about to retort , but only gave her a look . He wanted to keep his tempure on check , since backlashing isnt going to help anything . She snorted  and continued to look up at her computer screen . she stopped looking for Lotors coordinates , but instead was looking for a way to locate Lances location . This was harder than she thought since they had no knowledge of what kind of Pod Lance used .
Pidge didnt want to show that she was concerned about Lance , but in reality she really was . She was like his brother and now for him to walk out of her life like that felt like Matt was leaving her all over again . It hurted her . She didnt want to experience the pain all over again .

Shay led Lance to were a bunch of balmerans were . It looked to be a gathering of some sort . “Here lance have some food ” Lance took the food and gave it a weird look , questioning what it was , why did it look so pink and gooey , but Lance had no choice , since his stomach was practicaly screaming to be full .

“Lets do a little introduction , heres my family , thats my brother Rax , my grandmother Rena  , my father rox  , and my grandmmother Rilla” Lance bowed and pointed his gun fingers at them and greeted them . “Hey there the names , Lancey Lance , but you can call me handsome ✨” they all looked at him and gave a nervous laugh and sweat dropped. They didnt know how to react to such a behavor . Rena walked up to Lance and gently grabbed his arm , “youre more than welcome to be here , after saving us from such tragic . ” her smile was warm and big . Lance felt a gush of happiness , she reminded him of his Abuelita from back home . Her sweet singing , her good cooking , he- all of sudden tears start streaming from his eyes . 

He really missed his mother  hugs , his grandmothers hugs , the rain , the verardo beach , his little cousins , but he also missed playing on Pidges computer and using her headphones to listen to music , watching Hunk cook and charting with him about everything , training with Shiro , having small talks with Allura , helping coran clean the healing pods and Keith , he missed Keith , and His stupid mullet , he misses bickering with him . Everything was crashing down on him . He was so tired . He hated the feeling of not being of use to the team , he hated feeling like a hindurance to the team . Tired . Tired of everything . Tired of being away from both of his homes at the same time . His home at the castle of lions and his home art earth . Rena took Lances arm and asked if he was alright , Lance looked at her and he couldnt do it anymore , he hugged Rena , and poured out his heart . “Im so sorry” his voice cracked “im so selfish , im not a good friend , i-i Im so useless I hate mysel-” Rena hushed him and held him in her arms . Lance held on to Rena , he could feel his legs give out . They both fell on the floor , Lance still clutching onto Rena. Rena told the other balmerans to leave them be , except Shay . 

Shay looking sympathetically towards Lance , wishing she could help him anyway possible . She wished Hunk was here to also help him . She sar next to Lance and Rena . The tears wouldnt stop , he wanted to go home , but he didnt know which home . With the palladins or with his earth family . A fee moments later Lance fell in a slumber sleep . Shay ruffled Lances hair and wiped tears away , she looked at Grandma Rena and asked , “Do you think Lance will be okay? ” Rena looked at Lance , she thought that poor guy looked like he was having a hard time with himself , but he looked a bit relaxed in his sleep . “Yeah he will be fine . He just needs time . “ 


 Pidge pulled up a map of the galaxy “Okay so Lance shouldnt be that far from us , his space pod should only get him a atleast 2 if not three planets away from us ” Allura inserted , ” there are three possible planets that he went to since hes ran out of gas . First planet is Robus X , Ubio and lastly the Balmera Planet . . Hunk walked up to the map and closely looked up at the three planets . He examined them one by one . Robus X and Ubio was out of the list , he looked at the balmeran planet , he has a hunch he might be there . “you guys , I feel like Lance would be in the Balmera planet” Pidge looked at Hunk and grinned . Pidge went up to Hunk and lightly poked his stomach and teased him “ you just want to see your girlfriend ” . Allura , Shiro and Keith and Coran just looked at each other and shrugged . “No-no you guys , im being serious , I have a feeling hes there ” They all looked at him and remembered how Hunks hunches were somewhat accurate . And everybody decided they would put faith in Hunks hunch . Shiro walked up to Hunk and placed his hand on his shoulders and smiled at him . “ Okay Coran and Allura , lets go to the Balmera Planet “ Coran and Allura got into their position and opened up a black hole in front of them . A black hole that goes right into the Balmeran Planet .In everybodies head , they hope Hunk is right and that he is there and safe . 


 Opening his eyes was harder than he thought . He felt like his eyes were shut with glue . He was laying down on the floor a rock as a pillow , but somehow it felt really soft . Shay saw Lance shuffle on his sleep , and shook his shoulders a bit . “H-hey youre awake now , are you alright?” Lance looked up to see Shay , Smiling, but her eyes seemed so concerned about him . Lance got up and looked around the room to look for Rena . “Hey , im alright , thanks shay , by the way , wheres Rena?” Shay got up and grabbed a Cloth and put a bit if water on it and handed it to Lance . “Shes making us food at the moment , I wanted to help , but I wanted to tend to you ” Lance smiled and grabbed the cloth and wiped his face with it . He probably looks terrible from all that crying and sniffing . “Food is ready , im glad youre awake Lance ” Shay got up and helped Rena set up the table and food .  


Lance felt so bad , he felt like hes been taking advantage of them , first he comes uninvited to their planet and take their supplies to embark on his journey to earth , where he literally has no idea which way it is, next He showed him how weak he was by crying infront of them and now he is being fed .This is too much . He is always recieving , but never giving back . He Couldnt stay here any longer , he needed to leave . He didnt want to inconvinence them any longer so Lance has decided . “Hey Rena and Shay thanks for everything , but youve done enough , I cant take anymore from you guys , thank you. I really need to get going Ladies” Lance gets up to leave only to be stopped by Rena 


. “Please stay to eat , you need it ” He looked at Shay and Rena , eyes were pleading to stay with them , he was about to retort , but he sighed and gave in . Theyre too nice of a person to say no to . All of three started to walk towards the table and pick at their food . Lance looked at his food and back at both Shay and Rena . He was truly , thankful , for these two. They also reminded him of his sister and his grandma . Rena noticed Lance staring at her and smiled , “ Something the matter ? ” Lance looked away still a smile on his lips and tells them of how the three of them eating reminded him of his sister and grandma. “Ahh , I see , why dont you tell us more about your earth family ? ” Shay asked excitedly . 

Lance realized he has only known these two for only in a short amount of time , but he didnt hesitate to tell them at all . It felt natural to tell them , natural to talk to them . Hes about to tell them his life story . Not that he wouldnt mind , its just that , it felt like hes been knowing them forever , Thats a good sign . Or a weak sign because he trusts too easily , but he knows deep in his heart , these people are too be trusted . “W-well , I have a big family at home . I have 3 little cousins , 2 brothers and 2 sisters , Im the oldest one and of course my grandma , my mother and my dad . ” Lance smiled as he remembers his hometown and his friends and his favorite beach in the world . The verardo beach . “Our family would always go to the beach , even when its cold . We are commitsd to Tuesday Beach Day . Lance laughed and continued ” I always look after my brothers and sisters at home while my parents where away from work. My mom is has a resturant and my dad helps with the cooking . Also , My mother gives the best hugs!!“ Lance remembers during his birthdays , his other siblings birthdays , relatives birthday , or any holiday . There would always be a lot of food . And a lot of people would come over friends and family . It would get crazy and loud , but fun. “My grandma , she also gives the best hugs , I cant say whose hugs i like more , but theyre both the best ” Lance paused to eat some of his food and continued “ My three cousins , are a big pain in the butt to take care of . Seriously they run around all over the place ! . One time they tied me up and put my hair in a pony tail !” Rena and Shay in unison laughed , Rena thought . Lance had such a vibrant and all around fun family . Of course , there will always be discourse here and there , but would it really be a family if there wasnt ? Rena stopped laughing and wiped the tear from her eyes “Your family must be really fun to be with , truly they do love and miss you .” Lance smiled turned into a frown he thought “ love and miss me huh? , I wonder if they do , I wonder if theyre looking for me and or even remotly remember me at all” lances train of thought interrupted when Rena asked

 ” so , what about your palladin family?“ Lance looked up to Rena and hesistated to answer for a sec , but proceeded . "W-well , um theres 7 of us . 2 beautiful ladies , Allura , shes really smart and shes an altean princess and super strong , youve met her before . Theres Pidge , shes a gremlin ,but shes my little sister kinda , shes tech savy and really smart . Theres Coran , hes like my uncle , he makes me help him clean the healing pods , I really found it boring at first , but now I have fun cleaning it with him since he now puts music . Theres Shiro , hes the man I look up to the most , hes a great leader and I aspire to be like him one day . Also , hunk , my best bud , my man , been knwoing that guy ever since , super humble , hes really smart and handsome . Anyone would be lucky enough to be his girlfriend. Lance glanced over at Shay and Shay looked away with tinted pink cheeks . He couldnt wait for Shay and Hunk to actually be together . They would give Lance cavity . Lance laughed , and continued . Last , but not least , ugh mullet guy . “This guy , him and his stupid mullet . I mean hes not a bad guy , but he ignored me when we went to garrisons together , but then he gets mad over me not remembering our “bonding moment” , and now he became my rival , well , not really anymore I think . Lance puts his spoon down and puts his hand under his chin and raised his eyebrows “ I mean , well . I dont think hes my rival anymore , I guess were friends now ? I mean , Hes a cool guy flying into asteroids and cool junk like that. So ,I dont hate him that much , well I dont hate him , I dont think I ever hated him . I guess I want to he friends with him , but I dont know , I think he hates m- Lance stopped when the room filled with Laughter from both Shay and Rena 

. “I think you like this guy , I think youre mixing your feelings with hate and like and rivalry ” Lance looked at them with an unamused face with a tint of blush on his cheeks . “Who would like him? Anyway , I mean ” Lance remembers their bonding moment , (vividly) , when they held hands , when keith gave him the softest smile when he saved up from a flying sword , Keith smiling fondly at him when he made a joke about being the sharpshooter . Their backs touching one another when they were stuck on the elevator. Lances face was now a full on tomato, he turned to look away from the two of them. This is so embarrassing . “Stupid brain , stop THINKING ABOUT HIM , HIS MULLET , HIS FACE, HIS LIPS , WHY WOULD I LIKE HIM WE ALWAYS BICKER , HE HATES ME , BUT WE PROTECT EACH OTHER FROM HARM , I MEAN THATS WHAT EVERY COUPLE DO RIGHT?!?! WAIT WHY AM I COMPARING US TO A COUPLE? gaah STUPID BRAIN  

"You have an amazing family Lance ” Lance now calm , looked at his plate and back at Rena . “yeah , theyre the best . I miss them ” Lance grabbed a spoonful and continued to eat . “ Why are you trying to leave your family? ”

as he was about to eat his food , he paused midair and slowly put the spoon down . “W-well , its , just that I feel that Im not good enough to be on the voltron team” Rena and Shay concerned about him. “so this is what was bothering the kid?” Rena thought . Both her and Shay got up from their seats and hugged Lance . Rena and Shay ruffled his brown hair . “Lancey , my boy , Sometimes the world feels like its against us , sometimes its not the world , its our ourselves that we are fighting ” Lance listened contently . Shay continue “you know , Lance , when I have a problem , usually I can fix it myself , but if Im not able to . I have my friends and family . If they have a problem , I would also give them a helping hand because thats what friends and family do . You dont have to always shoulder your burdens , you have plenty of shoulders to lean on . If you dont have a shoulder to lean on you can have arms ” Both Rena and Shay wrap their arms around his shoulders . 

 "A strong foundation that can keep you up from falling down” Lance was shocked , he never felt so much love in this while , he starts to grab both of their arms and hug them . Tears streaming down his facewhile continuously saying “thank you guys so much ”. This moment , was a moment Lance , will truly forever cherish . He was so grateful to have met these two . It felt like he had just made another family , He showed them his beautiful and darkside and they embraced it . They embraced him . They accepted him and helped him even when he was just a stranger who just landed on their planet for resources . Their hospitality and love that was graced upon him and honestly he felt like he didnt deserve it ,but accepted it whole heartedly . Rena and Shay felt happy for Lance to be able to pour out his feelings , though they werent sure , if his self doubts would continue , but he would know now himself that people care about him . All three of them crying and hugging each other was interrupted when they heard a loud sound coming from outside . All of them , looked at each other , wipping each others tears and looked outside to see what was all the commotion 

. Lance shocked to see the ship , he also questioned how they were able to track him down , but then he remembered they had Hunk and In the team , so it wasnt that impossible to do so . But He was now feeling guilty and selfish and useless all over again . He now burdened the team more by making them waste their time trying to locate him , when instead should be focusing on locating Lotor and find out about his plans . Everyone gathered to see a small space pod landing . The door opened , Revealing the palladins and the princess . Shay looked over and saw Hunk , she was quite nervous , but happy so see him . Shay started to run towards the crowd and waved at Hunk . They both run towards each other and hug one another . 

  Hunk was now blushing furiously , unable to speak the words he wanted to speak “ H-hey Shay ! Lon-ng time no see ! ” Shay laughed at his stuttering and smiled at him , “ its good to see you again” The palladins caught up to hunk and shay . Shay saw the others coming up behind Hunk . Shay walked up to allura and greeted her . “ Princess Allura and palladins its good to see you guys again , how can he help you?” “Our friend has gone missing and we were wondering if you had seen him? ” Keith nervously looking around and hoping to see Lance , but there was no sign of him at all . Maybe he wasnt in this planet , maybe they were wasting all this time that he was at another planet . Wasting time when they could help him he was out there stranded or wounded “Are you refering to Lance? ” Keiths train of thoughts stopped as he heard  Lances name . He was here? Where is he ? Keith started to look around at the people . 

 Rena and Lance looked at the crowd gathering around the palladins . Lance was super anxious to approach them , he had no way out now . He needed to apologize to them for burdening them . Rena looked up at Lance and placed a hand behind his back. And looked back at the crowd . “you dont have to yet go my son , but I know youre itching to see them again” Rena turned to Lance again finding him in a turmoil . Lance didnt have a choice , they were already here so might as well go with him and explain to them whats happening with him . Talking to Rena and Shay really helped and cleared his mind a bit . Lance hugged Rena “ Granny Rena , thank you for everything” and walked off to see the palladins . He was nervous , what if they kill him?well thats not really possible . But what if they hate him now? What if theyre just here so they could tell him theyre glad to leave him behind ? Either way he/ prepared with anything theyre going to say towards him .

 "Hes here? Allura asked and Shay nodded . Every one was shocked and happy to find out that hes landed here . Hunk sighed in relief and questioned “so where is- “Im here” Lance answered he had his other hand on his neck . Rubbing it back and fourth and the other hand on his pocket trying to look for something to pick at . 

Everyone turned and looked at Lance , they saw that he had red puffy eyes , ragged clothes and looked like he hasnt been eating or sleeping in months . Pidge , Allura , Coran and Hunk start to run towards him and hug him tightly . Lance wasnt expecting that at all . He expected to be reprimanded at . Expected to be hated . His thoughts were stopped when all of them started screaming in unison . 

 “MY BESTFRIEND HOW COULD YOU , WHO WAS I GOING TO NOW WHEN I MAKE EVERYONE FOOD ?!?! ” Hunk sobbed , he was grateful Lance was safe . He wouldnt be able to live if his bestfriend was harmed and or dead . “I HATE YOU - I THOUGHT YOU WERE GOING TO BE LIKE MATT AGAIN , DONT DO THIS AGAIN OR I WONT LET YOU USE MY HEADPHONES TO LISTEN TO SHAKIRA !! “ Pidge hugged Lances waist tightly . She was glad that Lance was safe , but she now haded to reprimand him later , if he ever decides to leave again , no shakira or laptop for a month . Coran screaming , “MY SONNNNN , MY SONNN YOU ARE SAFE , I FELT LONELY CLEANING THE PODS MYSELf ” Coran clinging on to his feet . Coran has lost many people in his life . Thr first gen Palladins . He didnt want to lose the other . He was glad he was safe . Shiro placed a hand on Lances shoulder and smiled at him “ Im glad youre safe ” . Shiro was reliefed that Lance wasnt captred by the galra . He was in good care and thats all that mattered . Allura hugged lances back “ YOU DARE LEAVE US ,HOW COULD YOU I FELT BETRAYED , I WAS WORRIED WE WOULDNT SEE YOU AGAIN ” Allura cried . She was began to start a new friendship with Lance and for Lance to be gone wouldve left a wound on her .  


Keith was in the back watching the commotion , he sighed contently . He was glad that Lance was okay , but still a bit mad for leaving them . Keith decided to walk up slowly to them . “H-ey , we’re glad to have our sharpshooter back. ” Keith blushed and looked away , he didnt know what say at the time other than that .maybe saying welcome back couldve been better ? .

 Everybody was now looking at Lance and Keith . Keith was embarrased to look back at Lance , but he looked anyway to see Lances reaction . Both starring at one another . Lance looked like a riped tomato . He can barely hold himself to say something . Now everybody was interested to see where this was going . “W-why are you blushing mullet?!?!” “I SHOULD BE ASKING you that , why are you blushing?!!” Keith was now embarrsed . He wished the ground undrr him would open up and swallow him . He decided that he would walk away and walk back small space pod . “Keith wait , I wanted to talk with you and everybody” Keith stopped and looked back at Lance and started walking back towards him . He remembers that he still hasnt told them the reason why he actually really left . He left them hanging , with an excuse at that . Its understandable that youd want to see your family again , but it still didnt add up , knowing Lance , he wasnt a selfish person , not at all . There was much more than "I just want to see my family”

Everybody stopped clinging on to Lance and was now facing him , waiting for an explaination . Lance took a deep breathe and told himself its okay you can do this . You can tell them . Just be yourself and tell them . After all , theyre your family . You 2 new families . The palladins and Shay and Rena.

 “I-im sorry , for being a burden again , I-” Dang it , Lance thought the tears are forming again and he still havent even gotten far into his explaination yet . Everybody looked at Lance , sending worried looks on his way . Shay and Rena walked over to Lance and gave him a patt on the back . He looked at both of them and he nodded . He breathed in and out and continued “I-I left because I thought that ……I was … I-I felt like a burden to the team . A useless weight …….. Allura has the blue lion , S-Shiro was back so he was going to take Black from Keith and Keith would want his Red back , why should I be there ? I dont have a purpose anymore …. I think. I think everybodies inferior to me , Pidge is smart , Hunk is also smart , Shiro is a leader , Allura was powerful , Coran also had knowledge and Keith , Keith I , I also admired you . I- I just I was just I just - I just felt miserable being around with people whos abilities are off the charts , but now thinking about it and thinking about thr times I-I had with the team “ Lance stopped , his breathing patterns were off and the tears in his eyes were getting heavier . "I- I felt more miserable when I left you guys ” Lance cradled himself and crying . Everybody shocked and tears filled their eyes . They went up to Lance and hugged him . “Lance , the lion switch was temporary , dont worry about it . Youre not a burden to the team . Not at all . Youre far from that . We became good friends now , you always have my back , im super thankful for you . ” Allura assured Lance . Hunk pulled lance in a crushing hug and screamed “ Why would you think that? You saved us plenty of times ! Youre my bestfriend , I know we always joke around , but really youre important to us !! I dont like seeing you hurt buudddy ” Hunk safely Landed Lance down And Pidge started hugged Lance again in the waist “ I never thought you were a burden , i think youre a great friend Lance , thank you for being a good substitute brother” Lance cried more loudly , this was it , this was what he needed . Reassurance from the team . Ressurance that he was needed and loved by his teammates or better yet , his family . Lance pulled Hunk , Pidge and Allura in a tight embrace . Shiro walks up and patts him in the head , Lance looks up at Shiro and smiles “we never once thought you were a burden ,not at all . Youre a great sharpshooter Lance . Youre always improving and honestly you improved the most so far . ” Shiro got a bit teary eyed . Lance was like his brother to him , (well maybe brother in law in the future if things work out between him and keith) Coran interjected “ NOOOO MY SON , MY GORGEROUS SON , NEVER THINK NEGATIVELY ABOUT YOUR SELFFFF ” Coran lifted his hand up to Lances hair and ruffled them . "You make all of us proud my son ”

 Keith was watching his teammates sob and cradle Lance . He wouldve been lying if he said he didnt want to , but he wasnt to keen in showing public diplay of affection . He walked up to them slowly . Hunk , Shiro , Pidge , Allura and Coran stop hugging Lance and looked at Keith coming up towards them . They all looked at each other and smiled and walked away from Lance . Lance was now confused , was Keith going to punch him? Yell at him? What what?

Keith walks up to Lance pulls on the hem of his shirt and places his forehead against his. Everybody was shocked by this . Pidge took out her made shift phone and started taking pictures . The picture was quite perfect with greenish lighting , but also sun arraying on them . The other palladins saying sighing contently saying finally . Keith sighed and looked at where he is gripping Lances shirt “I-im not good with words , but next time you have a problem , come to me , dont go far away from me , come and i-ill open my arms wide for you to hug .” Keith looks  up at Lance for an answer and they both felt liked the world stopped when theyre eyes met  . They were inches apart . Inches from closing the gap between them .  

Everybody was starring at them intensely while , Keith and Lance starred at each other for a while blushing madly . Keith was getting embarrassed and weird stares that peope are giving them . Also to his weird little speech towards Lance . Keith lets go of Lances shirt and turns the other way “A-anyway thats all . lets go home” All of sudden , everybody was screaming sounding dissapointed “NO KISSS?!?!” Keith and Lance now frozen in their place . Lance looked like he was about to pass out , while keith looked like he was about to kill everybody . 


 But all in all , Lance is happy , he didnt know they cared about him this much . Or probably they did care about him a lot , but couldnt see through it due to his negative thoughts and fears . Tears streaming down his face again , truly he was fighting himself , not the world . He realized these people actually care about him . He was needed . He was loved .It was him that needed to overcome his insecurity fears and doubts . Although , it wont be easy to overcome , but truly he has wonderful people to help him overcome it . He also made a new family . Reana and Shay , he cant wait to meet up with them And his fanily back at earth after he finishes saving the world . He truly , is blessed and glad he had wonderful people in his life . Rena and Shay opened up his eyes and made him realize that he was worth more than he thought he was . 


 He now can finally , truly and contently say , the palladins , shay and rena and his family back at earth , are his foundation . ❣️ 

 The end 💙❤️

Ok but consider time

We all know that Lance is homesick and we were shown just how far away they were from Earth at one point. But something that hasn’t been considered is that time is passing differently for them than it is on Earth. A good representation of how this is is in Interstellar, when the main character’s youngest sends him a video, something that she refused to before and only decided to do because it was her birthday. The birthday marking her the same age as her father. Another example of this is if you take a clock and you do one revolution around earth the time on the clock is different than the time on the clocks on Earth that would have previously been running at the same time. I don’t know the exact science so that might not be exact.

So like… I have an idea for an au where Lance’s family is devastated when they find out, and Lance’s 13 year old genderfluid sibling is like ‘I want to go to the Garrison’ and Lance’s parents and everyone else are like 'No, we just lost Lance, why would you want to do that’ and the sibling is like 'Lance’s dream was to make it to space and if he couldn’t get there in his life time then I’m going to do this for him’ so they take up engineering and physics to try to get into the Garrison. They try to get in at age 14 and don’t, but try again at 15 and do. They get an opportunity to be a pilot because someone quit. They have to deal with Iverson and he’s like 'You’re just like your brother, useless, a replacement because someone else isn’t here’ and they realise that this would have fuelled Lance’s anxiety and he never told any of them. They make it their personal mission to be problematic, but also the best in their class. Like, insulting Iverson everyday, becoming 50000000% more petty and salty, and even at one point challenging him to a rap battle. On a separate occasion they somehow manage to barge into a staff meeting to shout that at Iverson that he verbally abused and degraded their brother’s mental health and worsened his anxiety, before presenting a petition signed by the whole student body and some parents to get Iverson fired. Iverson is fired. After a few years the Kerberos mission is being rebooted. At age 19 they are chosen to pilot. They tell their family that they’re finally getting to see space. The team includes Mrs Holt, who had stepped up to engineering again, and another woman. They get to Kerberos, and a few weeks into their mission the Galra resistance group who rescued Matt arrive, to check that the area is still free of the Galran Empire. Mrs Holt is so happy, but also, her son looks the same way he did when she last saw him 8 years ago, though more buff, scarred and tired. The sibling convinces them to let them come with them, and when Matt explains that Mr Holt is still out there Mrs Holt is like 'There is no way that you’re leaving me behind, the communications officer is like 'The government adopted me when I was 12, and they passed me off to the Garrison immediately, two years before they were legally allowed to so I don’t have much back there, I’ll come’. The Galra resistance group meets with the Blade of Marmora to form an alliance. They then meet with Voltron. The meeting is first with Allura, then the paladins of Voltron are introduced, minus Shiro because he’s missing. There are the obvious reunions.

Matt: What the f-
Mrs Holt: Language, Matt.
Matt: Mum, I’m fighting in a war and I was a slave for a year, let me swear.
Pidge: Who are you, you’re not the short beanpole I know.
Matt: As I was saying, MUM, what the heck’s a Pidge.
Pidge: I’m a Pidge. And Mum, you look a lot older than I remember.
Matt: KaTIE THAT’S NOT SOMETHING YOU SAY TO ANYONE.

Lance enters with a mug of coffee or something.

Hunk: Ah, I see you’re holding true to being the 20 minutes late with Starbucks meme.
Lance: Yes, but I woke up lat this morning and I have to uphold my beauty routine so I’m not sore-why is Pidge standing next to a hot Pidge what is happening am I okay.

Lance is barrelled over in a bear hug by his sibling.

Lance: *is confused*
Keith *is alarmed, the subject of his pining isn’t allowed to die*
Everyone else: *also alarmed*
Sibling: How dare you, not tell me or anyone else about Iverson being a dick to you! You were my role model! I came out as genderfluid to you before anyone else! Before I came out to Mama! You watched my debates and you went to everyone on of Freya’s hockey games, and you taught Maria how to use makeup when she was transitioning, and yet you couldn’t tell anyone of us, or even Mum or Mama about that!
Lance: Who-w-How do you know all that who are you?
Sibling: Well, you dense traffic light after that I thought it would have been obvious. I’m *name*
Lance: Um, no, *name* is 13.
Pidge: Lance…I can’t believe I forgot…We studied this…Time passes differently in space…
Lance: So you’re telling me that they’re, that you’re, my sibling? You’re, like, my age, if you aren’t older! How old even are you?
Sibling: I’m 19.
Lance: What the f-
Matt: Language.
Lance: ????
Matt: If I’m not allowed to swear you don’t get you.
Sibling: You know what this means, right? Unless you were some sort of crazy party animal at the Garrison I got to drink before you.
Hunk: 19 is still underage though.
Sibling: In America maybe. But we live in Australia. So. Whenever I went home I got to drink. Because I was also at the Garrison from a program/branch thing in Australia I was bound by Australian rules so I was legally considered an adult and allowed to pilot the second Kerberos mission.
Matt: But more importantly. You think I’m hot? *bats lashes at Lance*
Sibling: Right, how could we forget about that beautiful gem.
Lance: How could you do this? Betrayed by my favourite little-what is is sibling? Sister?
Sibling: Sibling.
Lance: How could I be betrayed by my favourite little sibling?
Sibling: Well first of all, I’m only your favourite until Freya or Maria is in the room and suddenly you’re not allowed to have favourites, and second, you may have been born before me but I’ve lived longer than you so I’m the older sibling now.
Lance: All around me are familiar faces, worn out places-
Allura: We are currently searching for our black paladin, Shiro, which is why we wanted meet with you, aside from solidifying an alliance.
Matt: Wait, you mean Shiro like Takashi Shirogane?
Keith: Yeah. He’s missing and we can’t form Voltron without him.
Matt: You must be Takashi’s emotionally constipated adopted child-I mean adoptive brother. But more importantly, he couldn’t even be here to meet me! My boyfriend’s such a *stares directly at Mrs Holt* goshdarned flake.
Pidge: *Snorts* And what a hecking shame that is! If you being here could have stopped him from going and cheesing disappearing then we wouldn’t be in this dang situation.
Holt siblings: *snorts devolving into cackles*

So that’s my au. There’s more. There’s so much more and I might draw some of it. I’m also considering a name/names for the sibling.

Or, alternatively the time passing differently in space could just be for langst.

Langst

I would really like some of these to be turned into fanfics….

- Lance has feelings/crushes on everyone on the team but nobody even remotely or lowkey returns his feelings so he’s bottled it up inside

- Lance collapses from sleep deprivation in a hallway and nobody finds his more almost an entire day, they think he’s just playing games.

- Hunk knows a little Spanish and sometimes tried to reassure Lance in Spanish but he gets it wrong and accidentally tells Lance he’s useless instead of special

- Lance asks Pidge why she isn’t sleeping anymore and she yells at him about her family and how he doesn’t understand. Lance loses his cool and screams at her that he’s so home sick he’s thought about leaving so many times and never coming back. His tantrum quickly turns to an act of crying. Pidge doesn’t do or say anything because she doesn’t know how.

- Lance dies on a mission and the only people looking for him are Keith and Shiro, everyone else assumes he’s ignoring them.

- Instead of saying quiznack, Lance has returned to saying fuck

- On missions, Shiro stops paying attention to Lance and his ideas. Eventually Lance gives up and basically runs away, not knowing the rest of the team needs to form Voltron.

- Matt is saved and is immediately introduced to the blue lion and they begin to bond. Lance lashes out at Matt, claiming he’s taking away the only friend he had left and the rest of the team gets offended and tells Lance to shut up.

- (trigger warning: self harm) Lance cuts is thighs when he’s upset. Keith’s caught him on multiple occasions and has never said anything.

- Prince Lotor intercepts the team on a mission and begins to beat their asses. He’s infatuated with Lance and wants to be with him— romantically and sexually. The team asks Lance to say no, “Lance don’t do it! We need to form voltron! Think about us!” And that’s what sets Lance off. He strips right then and there of his Voltron gear and leaves with Lotor.

- Prince Lotor kidnapping Lance in the middle of the night to add discourse to the team, only to find out no one is looking for him for 2 days.

- Keith and Pidge continuously playing pranks on Lance, often blaming stuff on him he clearly didn’t do and videotaping it. Lance can’t laugh at it when they tell him it’s a prank, and they ridicule him for crying.

- Hunk forgetting the time in the garrison with Lance and having to re-bond with his buddy but it doesn’t work and now they aren’t even friends

- Allura asking the team to stay silent for an entire day as part of a team building exercise but of course Lance wasn’t there so he goes the whole day thinking everyone’s ignoring him, and when he goes to Allura to talk about it, she yells at him for breaking the rules

- Lance going deaf from and explosion and when he tells his teammates he can’t hear them they lash out.

this is it… langst is all i will be remembered for 

-lance is a HUGE. fan of Marina and the Diamonds. All of her songs just hit him in the heart just right, but whenever he listens to them he starts crying. Someone started humming or singing it and instantly became alarmed/panicked when he started bawling.

-allura and coran can’t possibly be the only alteans left. there would have been some alteans that lived on other planets, right? lance’s great great grandparents were completely altean, but they stayed shapeshifted as humans for so long their children looked like humans too. Lance is 100% percent altean, but his familes forgot their history.

-lance self harms. not cutting, he does it in more… subtle ways. like making himself sleep with no blankets, or biting his hands, or scratching at his skin. shiro did all of these things, so when he realizes what lance is doing he immediately tells everyone else in an attempt to help (he really did try to help. he really did.), but that’s not a good idea. Lance lashes out and panics.

-alteans don’t lie about important things. they’re truthful and honest (until it comes to ‘who stole my cookies??’. then they lie.), and they don’t know how tricky and deceitful humans can be. Lance, coran and allura soon learn, is an expert liar.

-lance always carries a compact mirror around with him, and a lot of times people call him out for ‘being obsessed with his appearance’. somehow, it saves the entire team at some point, whether from blinding an enemy, or making a stuck-up king thankful, but pidge mutters ‘wow, lance’s vanity finally does something useful for once.’ lance hears her.

Sugar burn (part 1)

summary: despite his hard exterior lance loves to spoil and praise his athletes (as well as you) but when you come to visit him at his gym, his acts of kindness are too familiar and insecurities as well as fears rise to the surface

pairing: sugardaddy!lance tucker x reader

word count: 2466

warnings: mentions of sex, sugar daddy/sugar baby relationship

a/n: s/o to the amazing anon who gave me an awesome prompt for this fic!

His smile is worth a million dollars, his teeth that peek through his infectious smile gleam and shine more than his Olympic medal does. Lance Tucker is in a good mood and for the past year and a half, he has been nothing but smiles and kind words. His students: the Olympic hopefuls never question it, glad that the once complete and utter asshole has toned down and is now nothing like his former self.

Lance Tucker no longer flirts with anything on legs that walks through the door, in fact, the definition of a bachelor doesn’t even look at other women like they’re a piece of meat. He’s a changed man, his students, as well as his colleagues (including Hope who doesn’t fail to make fun of him claiming he’s gone soft), know it but they don’t know why.

They don’t know that you’re the reason why he showers his students in affection – the good kind not the flirty bordering on sexual harassment kind. They don’t know you’re the reason why he walks through the gym doors every day feeling like both a God and the luckiest man alive. You make him feel all the emotions he had tried too long to pretend he didn’t feel. It was love but not the conventional kind but the kinky kind of love.

anonymous asked:

I was wondering if I can get the blade of mamora in group chat with the paladins and they are telling Keith that they have information on his heritage and found his mother. They have her in the chat and she says she would like to have her son back by her side if possible. All the other paladins are sad and don't want Keith to leave. And lance even lashes out on Keith's mom. In the end his mother lets him stay and compliment lance on being a great bf even though they aren't dating yet.

ok i FREAKING LOVED this request and i may or may not have gotten a little carried away… so it’s kinda left on a cliffhanger?? 

it was getting really lengthy and i didn’t want to make this post a mile long… so if anyone is interested, i’ll continue! :)

to be continued?? maybe?? (lmao i got way too caught up in the drama of this one i’m so sorry)

part 2!!!

anonymous asked:

what about married klance 👀 that domestic shit

“I’m glad we did this.”

Lance could feel the vibrations of Keith’s words against his chest, his hands. They were one bundled up mass, Keith leaning back into him and his arms wrapped around Keith’s waist under a gigantic, thickly woven blanket. Beyond their little cocoon on the balcony of their lodge, a snowy landscape of alien pines stretched far into the distance. Lance nuzzled his chin further into Keith’s shoulder, wishing for once that his husband’s terrible mullet was still there to keep him a little warmer. He sighed, watching his breath turn to steam and fade into the crisp air. “Me too. It’s been awhile.”

Keith shifted a bit, pulling the blanket tighter around them. “I still feel a little bad, leaving the kids. Three weeks is a long time.”

“I don’t,” Lance chuckled, leaning forward to press a kiss against Keith’s cheek, rough with stubble. “They’ll be happy to be back on Earth, Hunk’s place is paradise to them. And I think they’re probably glad to be rid of us, at their age.”

Keith laughed and reached for his glass, full of a shimmering ruby alcohol with an unpronounceable name, procured from the lodge bar. The glass was cold in his hand, but the drink burned pleasantly down his throat. “Then I take it back. I feel bad for Hunk- three weeks with our kids is a long time.”

“Now that’s true,” Lance snickered. “We should stop at that Lundarian butcher shop on the way back, pick up a nice cut for him.”

Keith hummed again. He wriggled around to face Lance, laying his hands against his husband’s chest, just an inch away. “Let’s not talk about going back just yet.”

Lance smiled, slow and content as he indulged in the simple luxury of watching Keith’s face in the peace and quiet. It had changed quite a bit in the long years they had known each other— both of their faces had. Sharper now, rougher and grayer around the edges. Lance ran his finger over the scar that curved down Keith’s temple and into his cheek. A slice from a Klemese dual sickle. The only thing left untouched were his eyes, still dark and stormy and watching him from behind jet black lashes. Lance murmured, “We got old, didn’t we?” 

Keith puffed air out his nostrils, his smile a little wry. “Somehow.”

“Somehow?” Lance’s brow knit.

“I wasn’t always convinced we’d make it out of our twenties,” Keith’s hands moved to clasp behind Lance’s neck, anchoring himself. “There were some close calls.”

Lance met Keith’s frown with a crooked smile. “Yeah, but I knew we’d make it. The universe loves newlyweds.”

Newlyweds,” Keith snorted. Memories, wild and young, pulled up the corner of his lips. “Does that make this our second honeymoon?”

“Maybe,” Lance said, pulling Keith ever closer in their bubble of warmth. His hand left Keith’s waist to cradle the edge of his jaw. He could feel Keith smiling as their lips met, slow and tender. It was their umpteenth kiss in who knew how many years, but Lance savored it like it was their first and last. “I love you,” he breathed.

“I love you too.” Keith pressed another slow kiss against Lance’s lips, letting the blanket fall off his shoulders. He reached for Lance’s hand and stepped back to tug him away from the balcony railing. Something mischievous flashed in his eye as he said, “Let’s go inside. And bring my drink.”

Lance followed obediently, laughing and giddy like it was his wedding day.

a little bit home

the new klance content from sdcc made me really emotional so here’s THIS. 


The castle is quiet. It usually is, since it’s so vast that everyone has a considerable amount of distance between them. They’re all only connected by the alarm and intercom system that Allura uses to call them to dinner or training.

But ever since they returned with only four pilots instead of five, it’s been quieter. It reminds Lance of what it was like when his abuelo died; the heavy weight in the air that doesn’t leave any space for speaking, just silent mourning and the constant darkness.

Shiro isn’t dead. Lance feels it deep in his gut. And even if he was, the team isn’t any different than it was when Shiro was here. They still have to stick together.

I had the (mis?)fortune of listening to Madoka songs last night and I couldn’t help but notice the similarities between Sayaka and Lance, and I couldn’t stop myself. (With bonus Keith as Kyoko, because I see a lot of similarities between them too, and Hunk as not-exactly-Madoka.) Aside from the fact that both of them are related to the element of water, they both have romanticized/fantastic ideas/dreams of certain things (their roles as magical girl/paladin for example). And I think the conundrum with the question of the intent of Sayaka’s wish as for self vs for others kind of fits with Lance too.

And then everything spiraled out into the beginnings of a Madoka Magica VLD AU. Basically the paladins becoming the equivalent of magical girls in Madoka, making contracts to be granted wishes and special powers, unaware of the consequences. A longgg post under the cut! (Fair warning that if you don’t know Madoka, it’s a very….dark take on the magical girl genre.) Uhm…prepare for heavy angst?

I thought about my amnesia au (it’s langst *coughs shangst coughs* of course) and i wanted to write another mini fic for it

Lance and Shiro had grown close one he had woken up and was convinced to talk to everyone. For a while, only Shiro and Coran had been able to be near the teen, they had been the only ones allowed to have physical contact with him. It had taken him a long time to let the others close and he still was closer to Shiro and Coran.

As memories came, the closer he let himself get to everyone.

As memories came, the more he wanted to know about Shiro.

He didn’t have that many memories (he couldn’t remember much about the group in general just yet) that he could remember that included Shiro so he had started to ask him about himself. Question for question.

As time passed, the two had grown close, which was something Hunk and Pidge, whom Lance had warmed up to a lot over the past month or so, would tease the teen about.

Then that night happened.

Shiro had woken up to two arms wrapped firmly around him, a familiar voice whispering soft words of comfort to him. His hair was stuck to his forehead with sweat, his body shaking as he tried to even his breathing. He couldn’t quite remember what he had been dreaming about, but he knew it had apparently been bad enough for Lance to hear him when he was walking to the training room, a place the Blue Paladin took refuge in when he couldn’t sleep for some odd reason.

The teen had entered Shiro’s room and was quick to attempt to wake the older male, forgetting what Shiro had told him about being carefully if he was having a nightmare momentarily and focusing on helping the Black Paladin. He had swung in his sleep, landing a solid blow on Lance’s gut, having knocked the breath out of him. That’s what led to Lance holding him with his arms pinned to his sides.

Shiro had been quick to start apologizing for hitting him, which just pulled a laugh from the Blue Paladin, a sound that was more reserved than it had been before. He found himself staring at the nineteen year old as he sat back on his knees, smiling at the leader with a simple ‘it was my fault anyways’.

Neither knew what really happened next, they both just remembered the Black Paladin leaning forward and connecting their lips. Lance had froze, eyes wide and when he felt Shiro begin to pull away, he had quickly wrapped his arms around his neck and kissed him again.

After that, the two had found themselves in a relationship that the others had said they ‘saw coming’. It was hard at first, any relationship developed during a war would be hard, especially when you’re on the front lines constantly, but they had managed to make it work. At some point, they had both begun to sleep in each other’s rooms all the time. It was mostly Shiro’s room that was used seeing as it was the biggest of the two, but Shiro wasn’t picky when Lance roam off during dinner and end up in his own room. (They’ve all been working on that, trying to get Lance’s appetite back to normal, and so far, it seemed like it was working.)

Then the battle with Zarkon had come around not long after they met the Blade of Marmora and rescued Slav.

The battle had been hard but they won! They had defeated Zarkon! Everyone was happy!

Then Black didn’t move when they were called back to the castle so they could leave. Lance felt worry pooling in his gut as they tried to call out for their leader and got no reply.

She was carried back.

Everyone had entered her cockpit and were frozen in place.

“Shiro?”

Keith’s voice sounded muffled to Lance as he stared at the helmet laying on the ground, blue orbs wide. His hands were shaking at his sides, eyes burning as he watched the chaos ensue. He couldn’t make out his teammates’ voices as they spoke, the same words running through his mind quickly.

“Hey…I’m right here, Lance. I’ll always be right here.”

He felt a large hand grab his own and his reaction had been slow before he turned his blank gaze to his friend. Hunk’s eyes were worried as he squeezed Lance’s hand. His mouth was moving, but he couldn’t tell what he was saying.

“Promise me you won’t leave me..” 

He found himself quickly jerking his hand away from Hunk’s, barking out a surprisingly hostile “Don’t touch me”, his entire body trembling. Someone’s voice, he couldn’t quite tell who’s, had said his name and he looked around to see the others looking at him.

Keith’s expression was frustrated, most likely from the fact that he just lost his brother, his best friend, and now Lance was lashing out. If one looked passed the frustration in those violet eyes, they would see the panic that had settled, his hands twitching at his sides slightly.

Allura looked surprised, eyes wide as she stared at her Blue Paladin. She had never heard him speak like that before, never heard him yell at any of the others except for the time he had exited the cryopod.

Coran’s expression was a mixture of pity as well as concern for the boy he had grown to view as a son. During the time he could barely even remember any of them, he had been one of the few that could be near Lance and he could see the panic in those bright blue eyes he would often see back then when Lance would forget where he was.

Hunk looked almost hurt by the way Lance had jerked away from him and moved away, but the concern for not only his best friend, but also Shiro was quickly pushing the hurt away. He took a step towards the other and was stopped by Pidge’s hand on his arm. The youngest of the group was staring downwards, not meeting anyone else’s eyes as they simply made Hunk stay in place.

Lance quickly felt that shield he was easily able to put up when he didn’t want the others to know how he felt crumble, tears rolling down his cheeks.

“I promise you, Lance.”

Shiro’s voice promising he wouldn’t leave him slowly got louder and louder as it repeated and the Blue Paladin found himself barely even able to hear the others’ voices anymore. Tears began to fall at a quicker rate and he was quick to turn away and head for Blue’s hangar, just wanted to being with his lion. He heard one of their voice’s call out to him, but he ignored it and quickly ran off.

Blue attempted to overpower the memory with her own memories of her paladin, her words and purrs echoing through the teen’s mind. He could still hear Shiro’s voice, he could still hear the promise being whispered to him by his mind, and he found himself dropping to his knees as soon as he entered Blue’s cockpit, sobs shaking his body. Blue’s concerned purr echoed through his mind and he felt himself curl into himself.

The lion put her force field up in the end, refusing to let any of the other paladins nor the Alteans in to see her paladin.

He needed to cope and she was going to let him without the disruption of others.

2. Kissing // Klance

« {Part 2 of my Valentine’s collection.} »


Training with his boyfriend had its perks, Lance decided. Sure, it could get a little awkward when they did group mind-melding exercises, but dating his teammate meant that he got to see him all the time, and he could flirt with him whenever he wanted, and—best of all—he could watch Keith practice sparring.

Lance was sitting on the floor of the practice room ogling Keith as he battled the gladiator robot. It was a great view. When Keith sparred, he was just…. Really hot. Sometimes it sort of made Lance mad how hot he was. Every move seemed as though it was specifically designed to showcase how strong and elegant Keith could be. He almost moved faster than Lance could track, brandishing his bayard with one toned arm and dodging the robot’s blows in a display of athleticism that made Lance’s mouth go dry. Keith had already taken off his jacket. He was left in a form-fitting black t-shirt that clung to his damp skin and perfectly showed off the muscles of his back and shoulders. His face was flushed and sweaty, and most of Keith’s hair had fallen out of his ponytail by now. Lance really wanted to tangle his fingers in that hair and never let go.

In one final move, Keith leaped forward and turned midair, slashing the robot’s side with his bayard. The poor thing didn’t even stand a chance. As the robot sunk to the ground, Keith landed, rolled, and ended in a crouch, one palm braced on the floor for balance. Lance’s breath caught in his throat. How the fuck did he manage to date someone so badass?

“Holy shit,” Lance said. “Leave some of the cool moves for the rest of us, okay? Jeez, you’re going to use them all up.”

“That doesn’t even made sense,” Keith replied, a little winded as he got to his feet. “Also, did you just admit that I’m cool?”

“No, I said you were doing some cool moves. That means you’re being a show-off.”

“Oh really?” Keith said. He grinned a little, and Lance forgot everything he’d just been saying. Why was Keith a show-off again? What were they bantering about? “C’mere, let’s spar.”

For the mini fic can you do shance and things you said at 1 am

‘things you said at 1 am’

“You know, you and I could be a thing,” Lance said, back bending over the edge of Shiro’s bed. He looked at a shirtless Shiro upside down and grinned.

“What do you mean, you and me?” Shiro raised a brow, pulling a loose shirt over his head. He was now ready to sleep, nudging Lance over tiredly to make room for himself.

“You know… us.” Lance raised himself up and spun onto his stomach. “Like, in a relationship.”

“Oh…” Shiro trailed off with a blush. Lance wanted to be… his?

Lance grinned, eyes narrowing into a flirtatious gaze. “Yeah,” he confirmed Shiro’s thoughts.

“It’s really late right now, Lance,” Shiro sobered up, glancing at the clock. “Are you sure about this, or is it just the time talking?”

Lance gave Shiro an unimpressed look. “You’re so damn dense sometimes, I swear,” he grumbled, before pouncing on Shiro and hovering above him. Shiro’s eyes widened in shock and Lance smirked, leaning in to kiss him chastely before whispering, “Yes, I’m serious.”

Shiro flushed, averting his gaze out of embarrassment. He glanced back up at Lance through his lashes and murmured his reply. “Then, yes, we’re a thing now.”

This time, it was Lance who’s face reddened, as he lay his head on Shiro’s chest with a laugh. “Boyfriends?”

“Boyfriends,” Shiro confirmed with a chuckle.
