So, um, I love your ficlets & I was wondering if you could write a scene containing Lance's reaction to the Kerberos failure & then his reaction to Pidge showing up with Matt, because Lance and Matt had secretly been dating at the Garrison and Lance never told anyone on the team. Bonus points if pidge just 'what the f--k (idk if someone reading this might be sensitive about cussing or not) are you doing with my brother lance'
Lance couldn’t believe the headlines strobing on the screen, as his heart shattered into thousands of pathetic, delicate pieces.
It had been broadcast all over the Garrison, and now Lance had to deal with the aftermath of everyone discussing his name, Matt Holt, over and over, like a tolling bell threatening both his need to cry and need to escape.
They had plans. Future plans. He’d travel back to Cuba and introduce Matt to his family, but even that didn’t work after being thrown into the middle of an intergalactic war, far away from home.
And it wasn’t until Pidge came forward and revealed that she had a brother, and Lance had hope that she’d find him, despite him never revealing his relationship with Matt. He missed him every day, and would always put aside his time to help Pidge with her work.
Until, one day, Matt arrived back with his sister, and his hazel eyes laid upon Lance’s. A wide smile curved his lips and suddenly the Blue Paladin didn’t feel as lost any more.
His heart felt full again. He was in Matt’s arms again, tender, loving and innocent, providing him with enough warmth and happiness to keep him going. Lance snuck him into his room every night for multiple reasons, and he didn’t consider the rest of the team until Pidge caught them out, with Matt’s head upon Lance’s chest as they slumbered peacefully.
She approached him and took him aside, sighing tiredly. “What the fuck are you doing with my brother, Lance?”
Lance lifted his head to see Matt waving behind his sister, and he flashed a mischievous smile. “Working together.”
