You Taught Me How To Be Brave…

We climbed up to the roof drinking whiskey in the rain
But I wouldn’t let you in, my life revolved around escape
Cause I was always such a runaway
Trying to cheat my way right through the game
But when you touched me, I couldn’t get away

I have been through pain in the dark like a knife
Yeah, I’ve been betrayed, ooh
You showed me how to love like a spark in the night
And not be afraid, ooh

More pre-Kerberos sheith. Because… damn it. Zayde Wølf made me do it.

Their cameo in s4 made me curious as hell about Shiro’s and Keith’s relationship during their time at the Galaxy Garrison. So, here’s my take on it:

  1. Shiro taking Keith to the roof for star-gazing… but somehow they always end up watching each other instead.
  2. A drunk as shit Keith “breaking into” Shiro’s dorm room (he does have a second key okay so technically it’s not breaking in- but don’t ask him how he got his hands on it) at 3 AM on a Wednesday, because he wanted some cuddles.
  3. Their first ride on a hoverbike.

Pro-tip, if you’re a white Star Wars fan (like me) and you feel inclined to tell POC fans to “stop whining about” or “get over” the near total exclusion of Finn, Poe and especially Rose in the marketing, and SW’s not so subtle demotion of Finn, who was marketing as being a POC protagonist and Jedi before TFA came out, to a supporting role, at any point in the next two months:

Everyone talks about Peter Quill meeting Captain America in Infinity War and freaking out, but do y'all realize he would have known Tony Stark too? In the MCU, Tony was born in 1970, and Peter in 1980. Peter was taken by Yondu in ‘88, when Tony was 18. Considering how famous Howard Stark was, and how much of a prodigy Tony was, Peter definitely would have known him. Now imagine Peter coming back to Earth in 2018 and realizing Tony is an Avenger:

“THAT GUY BECAME A SUPERHERO!?!”
