legendary parties

Isbur was entering The Sapphire Ice Gym when he heard a small spacecraft land roughly behind him. Out staggered Exiam.

 Whoo, those breakfast cocktails had been pretty strong.

Isbur turned around. Hey, that dude looked familiar! Some rich guy, partner was a musician…yeah, he’d read about him somewhere.

Exiam. That was his name. Said to be really rich, a trust fund guy, family money went way back. His parties were legendary. Here he was, in Saturenorn.

Isbur was rich now. Maybe this was a dude he could party with!

“Exiam, dude! My man. Lemme get a selfie with you, bro.”

Maybe I wanted to draw some younger Keith and Lance getting to know each other, maybe I just wanted to draw Keith in a band shirt.

The Good in Us Chapter 8 now up!

Read Chapter 1 here

It’s been like a day since I posted this fic and I’ve gotten so many kudos! Here’s the next chapter with a nice little drawing to accompany it!

In which Keith is more Galra than first meets the eye.

Keith:… well, that does explain a lot about the time I went to a strobe party.

Lance: You’ve been to a party???

can you imagine. Library au Keith and hunk work in receiving, processing new shipments/donations and putting books back from the dropoff chute. Pidge is IT support for the library and keeps the servers secure and lightning fast and definitely doesn’t spy on people with her network. Shiro and lance are the receptionists bc Lance thought it would be a good way to meet some smokin bodies and shiro just really loves books okay. Coran owns the building and Allura manages it and takes down all the mouse traps Coran puts up because “they’ve never chewed anything or pooped on the books, Coran!" 

 And there are the usual library shenanigans including but not limited to 

  •  - a closet full of books. no context it’s just there and Coran wants it to stay. 
  •  - squirrels sneaking in through the dropoff chute when the weather gets colder - hunk and keith hunting the squirrels bc they’re not always busy
  • - hunk wanting to be humane only and Keith slowly putting his knife away
  •  - Keith this is a library why do you have a knife
  •  - *squints into the horizon like a war veteran* squirrels
  •  - pidge suggesting that the mice are helping the squirrels
  •  - keith’s war against rodents begins and Allura scrambles to set up cozy hiding spots for them all just out of Keith’s reach
  •  - and then he finds his pistachios MISSING and his pear has been nibbled upon and he mc freaking loses it
  •  - shiro puts this sign up on the dropoff chute very quietly and kindly and he just kind of puffs up knowing that he’s done a Good Deed
  •  - people start obeying the sign and Lance leaves the front doors open so he can hear it every single time it happens. He has a tally chart.
  • - the chute opens one day without anyone shouting down it and Keith runs upstairs and looks around "did you see any squirrels ma'am" 
  • - Lance is dying bc it was him. 
  •  - klance makeouts between the bookshelves 
  • - the dudes from the computer repair shop next door coming in and asking if any of the webcams in the library had mysteriously turned on too 
  • - pidge is a good liar bc obviously she was behind it. 
  •  - hunk and allura putting food for the squirrels on the roof in an attempt to keep them safe from Keith 
  • - hunk and allura realizing that the squirrels are determined, suicidal little shits and so they just put food in the corner of the library or up on the highest bookshelves and hope that their tails will do the dusting for them 
  • - shiro sighing at literally everything as he hand feeds the squirrels 
  • - is he Snow White like how does he do that 
  •  - Keith’s Betrayed Face when he sees shiro schmoozing the squirrels 
  • - *whispers* I thought you loved me 
  • - shiro rolling his eyes so hard he goes and joins a bowling league 
  •  - the dudes from the computer repair shop coming back AGAIN and asking if show tunes had started playing in the library 
  • - pidge must physically remove herself from their presence bc she’s trying very hard not to cackle like an overlord 
  • - Keith brings in a CAT 
  • - allura is horrified and literally clutches her chest 
  •  - Lance falls in love with the cat, feeds it treats and snacks and gives it lazy toys until it gets ULTRA FAT 
  • - Keith comes to the conclusion that his bf sabotaged his cat plan on purpose and cuts off the nookie supply for a month
  •  - worst month of everyone’s lives tbh 
  • - hunk begs Keith to please just fuck Lance again 
  • - a hanjo in the Scientology section at the very least please please please 
  •  - pidge and shiro end up stuck in the weird book closet somehow 
  • - shiro COULD break down the door but that’s just a lot of work 
  • - why break things when you could have a book fight 
  • - they throw a couple hundred paperbacks at each other for 20 minutes 
  •  - pidge builds a throne of books and rules her domicile (400 books and shiro) with cunning and dignity 
  • - until shiro slaps her in the face with a copy of pride and prejudice and the war begins anew 
  • - the library has like three floors and everyone knows to stay out of the left wing of the third floor during lunch breaks bc Lance and Keith honestly don’t care if u see their butts they will not stop 
  • - shiro or hunk lifting pidge onto their shoulders to put more food on the shelves for the squirrels 
  • - the general populace of the town not being weirded out by any of the shenanigans in the library 
  • - it’s just another beautiful day in mr Roger’s neighbourhood for them 
  • - Keith runs by them with a knife in his teeth and a net in his hands? Totally normal

The Party part 16/?

K: …

L: …

L: Aren’t you going to say anything?

L: Whoa okay settle down-

K: Lance do you… even like me?

L: What?

K: Don’t ‘what’ me you know exactly what I’m talking about.

K: You walk around flirting with any mildly attractive alien we come across and I can’t help but feel like…

L: Like what?

K: Like I’m nothing special to you! Just another person you can flirt with when you feel like it, then move onto the next because it’s no big deal to you

K: d-don’t you know how much I care about you?

K: I-I mean we have arguments and disagreements and I know you’d probably be happy with someone else but to lead me on like this… and for this long.

K: It’s fucking cruel!

K: Is everything that you’ve done just some kind of petty game? Another competition you want to beat me at?! another way you can one up me!?

K: If that’s the case then, you must really hate me! a-and I know this all just might be my fault for forcing things, instead of just letting myself hate you-

K: Too….

cancerousopaline  asked:

Shiro for your headcanon party!

His arm doesn’t actually connect to the nerves in his organic shoulder/stump- rather, it connects wirelessly to a short-range implant in his head. This is how Pidge “hacked” his arm in that comic- she just briefly interrupted the connection. Also, due to the nature of its internal mechanisms, if it’s deactivated, it locks in place rather than going limp.

Shiro lives alone in an apartment, though he does have a small dog. Said dog is currently staying with a friend, albeit for… longer than expected. If that thought made you cry just imagine Shiro coming back from space and getting mobbed by the dog who is absolutely beside itself to see him.

Also on that topic: Shiro “…I have a confession to make. With all apologies to the Black Lion… I’m really more of a dog person.”

He’s Japanese-American and learned Japanese and English at about the same time so neither is really his first language.

His mom is a tiny (like 5′2″ at best when she’s wearing her good heels) lady who is also very sweet and they stayed in touch a lot, especially since Shiro’s father passed away a few years back so it’s just her and Ryou, and Ryou is currently going to art college.

The other paladins are all cadets, one of them is fourteen, and Coran and Allura are alien nobles and with the former Shiro’s history as an instructor tints a bit of how he sees them, and with the latter he’s determined to put a good foot forwards for all of humanity. In short there’s a reason Shiro is a little stiff and formal with the team sometimes. 

For the record, what I’m getting at is: Shiro during his missing year had a spectacular potty mouth and he lives in fear that one of these days the rest of the team is going to catch him telling someone to fuck off in eighteen alien dialects (prison is a good place for sharing and he did pick up “quiznak” right fast)

Other notes on this: When Shiro was thirteen he was the kind of kid who would apologize to his mom whether or not she was in the room if he said “heck”. He loosened up as he got older but even then between his job and general attitude he has still, historically, been pretty clean-spoken. His missing year was kind of a unique situation where a fairly sizable group of people earned his undying enmity and scorn and he was limited in his ability to respond more productively so, expletives happened. 

And now he’s trying to cram back into his polite persona because yes, a small part of him does in fact view the paladins as Impressionable Youths Under His Care but especially if he is stressed or frustrated that control… wavers. The guy who taught a whole bunch of aliens English swear words in space jail lurks, beneath the surface.

Bonus points: one time during a mission Shiro lets slip an “Oh, fuck,” and the entire team loses it, mostly Lance and Hunk and Shiro is totally waiting for Keith to cut in with the ‘guys, let’s focus here’ but instead he gives Shiro a lopsided grin, motions at Pidge, and says “Shiro, there are children present,” and Shiro is just like. on the one hand I’m so proud of you for being sociable but on the other. this is fraternal betrayal.

Shiro doesn’t live that down for the next week.

basicallyjazzhands  asked:

lance! my blue son!

Lance is a terrifyingly good swimmer, like. can cross a good-sized pool without coming up for air, dolphin jumps, flips- if he has a diving board he can be a huge showoff.

Of course one time he was trying to impress a cute girl, messed up doing a backflip and ended up hitting his chin on the board and had to get eight stitches.

He’s been picked on/pranked by others in the past but just refuses to hold a grudge on anyone for it ever. There are definitely people he doesn’t trust any more but he very rarely wants to confront people after he feels like it’s a dead issue, he’d just rather not deal with that.

He’s always wanted to get a tattoo but doesn’t know what he’d get.

So technically all the paladins are elemental themed but Lance is like painfully, aggressively The Water Guy. Like he’s currently borrowing music from Pidge because he needs background noise to sleep but the playlist he usually uses is ocean sounds. He did snorkeling when he was younger. When it rained in the Garrison Lance always wanted to go stand outside because “it’s rain! In the desert! Who’s gonna miss that?”

He loves it too. Like first time Blue was referred to as the guardian of water Lance had the biggest grin.

Actually super handsome. He’s a beautiful boy.

Did theater almost the entire time he was in elementary and middle school. Singing? Makeup? Stage crew work? He found a way to be in every production because he loved it. 

His family isn’t just big, it has a lot of really talented people there. Not a particular theme, but, a lot of different talents. One of his cousins is a concert violinist. He’s not the only one who went to school abroad or into the sciences, either.

Very fluently bilingual and actually gets kinda sore when people insist on trying to speak Spanish to him if it’s not their first language like “dude. I can understand you fine. Your Spanish is not that good, chill,” but his one weak point is like. idioms and sometimes minor grammatical heck-ups (“That’s one thousand plus ten,”) and he’s defensive about that.
