Hey! First off your writing is absolutely amazing, it's like honey to my twisted langst-loving soul. Second, how about some langst where a spell (because always blame magic to make Lance suffer) hits the team and they can't tell lies anymore, OR they have to say out loud anything they're thinking?
Also thank you!!!!!
Everything was quiet, like the type of quiet before a huge storm. Lance sat up from where he laid on the ground and slowly turned his head, taking in the room that he and his fellow team mates were in.
“What the hell just happened?” Lance urged his legs into a standing position and managed to support his tired body on his jello legs. Where did the witch go? She was right here, but then the lights and damn that hurt. Lance made his way over to the green paladin, who was finally becoming aware of herself.
“Pidge, how are you feeling?” Lance helped the smaller girl into a sitting position and heard the other paladins start to grumble, signaling that they were awake.
“I feel like I was just hit my a fucking train.”Pidge’s eyes widened at what she said and she slapped her hand over her mouth.
Yet Shiro had heard what she said as had already activated Space Dad™ mode. “Pidge, don’t swear, you’re too young for that.”
Everyone gave Shiro a weird look and Shiro shock his head. “How hard did you hit you head?” Keith asked as he dragged himself up.
Shiro never responded and focused on making sure his team was okay while Lance checked the perimeter. “Where did that hag go?”
“Hopefully back to hell where she came from.” Shiro’s face became tomato red as he recovered from what he just said to his team.
“Got it!” Pidge put down her helmet and started to talk to the princess while everyone else sat around her. After a few moments of conversation and Pidge saying quiznack more than she should she placed her helmet down. “Looks like the princess can’t reach us until morning, so we’re stuck here.”
Lance groaned in annoyance and laid down on the ground. “This is stupid.” A few paladins nodded and agreement and soon they started to get ready for a long night in a creepy abandoned ship.
It had been a few hours since a flash of purple consumed the room the paladins were currently staying in and Lance was finding it difficult to keep his mouth shut. He was saying everything that came to his mind and so were the other paladins. Nobody could keep their mouths shut and Lance started to panic as his mind wandering into secret territory.
“I miss Earth.” Lance leaned his head back and looked up at the ceiling. His team nodded in response, Hunk placing a comforting hand on his leg. “I also miss my family and my mom’s hug and feeling important.” If no one was paying attention before they were sure paying attention now.
“What do you mean Lance?” Hunk looked at his best friend with wide eyes and Lance couldn’t stop the words from flowing from his mouth.
“You know, like I miss fulfilling my role. I don’t do a good job with Voltron, I’m just a leg after all. I’m not a leader like Shiro or an amazing fighter like Keith. I can’t hack things like Pidge and I’m no engineer like you Hunk. I can’t fly the castle like Coran or lead a group of kids like Allura. I have no valuable skills, I’m just the seventh wheel, and that my friends is a terrible wheel to be.” Lance stared at the ground and scolded himself internally. He just told his entire team his insecurities. Now they’re going to think less of me.
Everyone was staring at Lance wide eyed, they knew that he was saying what was on his mind, they had all figured out that’s what the purple lights cause. Yet none of them knew what to say, how can you comfort somebody that doesn’t think that they are worth it?
“Lance, you have skills. You’re an amazing pilot despite what we may say.” Pidge prayed her words reached Lance.
“Plus, you can hold up quite a fight, you’ve beat me multiple times.” Keith gave him a small smile and fought the urge to hug the blue paladin.
Shiro nodded at what Keith said and decided to contribute to the conversation. “You also are very good under pressure and can hold your own in diplomatic missions.”
“You’re also my best friend and I think that you are amazing and worth it. You aren’t the 7th wheel because nobody is a wheel in this team. You are all of our friend and we love you just the way you are, you don’t need to feel less just because we all have our own skills.” Lance fought back tears as he looked at his best friend.
They were all telling the truth, they had to be. “You guys really mean that?” Everyone nodded in response and Lance held his arms out bringing everyone into a giant group hug, “I love you guys so much!” He was worth it and nobody could tell him differently at the moment.
I love this concept so much and I want to write more for it!
Sorry it took so long!!!!
I hope you like it!
Thank you <333
