Hello, I'm a huge fan of your family AU, and I'm here to say that it's one of my favorite AUs out there! I also came to ask a question about the family AU also. How would Keith and Shiro react when the kids, when they're old enough, come out to them? And again, the family AU is beautiful. It is a true gift to this world.
Thank you!! :D Glad you like The Voltron Family AU! <3333
Keith doesn’t really believe in “coming out” as he have mentioned here when Lance brought a boy home to their formal dinner admitting he’s bisexual. Hunk is slowly wooing Shay while she’s in Japan, taking it slow, until they got together after a few months.
So that only leaves Pidge. She sees her brothers with their significant others that she begins to wonder about herself until she came into a conclusion. She’s 18 when she finds out about it.
She enters the master bedroom and sees her daddies on their bed reading books silently. Keith is resting his head on Shiro’s lap as Shiro reads his own book while running his hand through Keith’s hair. Pidge loves them a lot and it warms her heart when she sees them doing something so simple yet so domestic. She clears her throat to get their attention.
Keith: *sees Pidge* *straightens himself* Hey, baby, what’s up?
Shiro: *looks up* Can’t sleep?
Pidge: *bites her lips* I…
Shiro: *taps the space between him and Keith* Come here.
Pidge: *smiles and runs towards the bed and climbs over it hastily and positions herself* *grabs her daddie’s arms on each of her sides*
Keith: What is it? *looks worried*
Pidge: I realized that you’re going to be disappointed in me.
Shiro: *frowns* What makes you say that? You’ve done nothing but make us proud. Did you cheat on your test or something?
Pidge: *rolls eyes* Oh my god. Only Lance does that.
Keith: *shock* Lance does that, say what?!
Pidge: A story for another time. But I have to confess something.
Shiro: *eyes widens* Pidge, are you smoking?! You know that’s bad for—
Pidge: What? I’m not!
Keith: Just let her finish, Shiro. *rolls eyes*
Shiro: Okay, go on sweetheart.
Pidge: *quietly* I can’t give you grandchildren.
Keith: What? Sorry, I didn’t hear that.
Pidge: *a little louder* I can’t give you grandchildren.
Shiro: Oh… *smiles* Well, we’re—
Pidge: *knits her eyebrows* No, Daddy Shiro, you don’t understand.
Keith: *is getting the idea* *smiles at Shiro and then at Pidge* Why don’t you tell us then what you really think?
Pidge: *cuddles her daddies tighter* I’m not going to be with someone like how Hunk and Lance are. I’m not bisexual or straight or gay or trans. *takes a deep breath* I’ve been thinking about it but the idea of The Thing grosses me out. *looks at Keith and Shiro* And please don’t say “Oh you’re just too young, you’ll find someone in the future.” No. Please, no. That’s not it. I know for sure I don’t want it. I don’t need it. I’ve researched about it and I’m a repulsed—
Keith and Pidge: Ace.
Pidge: *snaps her head towards Keith* W-What? You knew?!
Keith: *nods while smiling* *pulls Pidge to hug her tight and kisses her on the forehead* Oh my god. *laughs* Finally.
Pidge: *is confused* W-What? *looks at Shiro*
Shiro: *chuckles* Your Daddy Keith is also an ace, Pidge.
Pidge: *slowly smiles* No kidding?
Keith: *nods* *hugs her tighter* I’ve always wanted an ace child. And look at you! *kisses Pidge again* I’m so proud of you. Thank you for telling us.
Pidge: *chuckles* So it’s not going to be a problem then?
Keith: Being an ace has never been a problem. Please don’t think of it that way. That’s just who you are and we love you still the same.
Pidge: *hugs Keith* Thank you. So how did Daddy Shiro take it when he found out you were ace though?
Keith: *glances at Shiro and laughs* Oh I thought he would leave me actually.
Pidge: *looks at Shiro* I’m glad you didn’t.
Shiro: I’m glad I didn’t either.
Keith: *rolls his eyes* Sap.
Shiro: *turns to Pidge* Whether you find someone or not, it’s fine. You can just stay with us forever—totally recommended by the way. *cuddles Pidge* I don’t want to see you go—ever.
Pidge: *is crushed* Daddy Shiro, please. I’m pretty sure that’s how it’ll turn out. If you’ll still have me.
Shiro: *pampers Pidge with kisses* Didn’t I just say I want you here forever?
Keith: Boy, am I just glad you’re not gonna be popping kids by hundreds. Glad we got that sorted out. *sighs in relief*
Pidge: *scrunches up nose* Ewww, Daddy Keith. Ew.
Keith: *wipes imaginary tears dramatically* I’m so proud of you.
