And the results are in. The fic will be canon compliant, Asami is older(which is canon), they already know each other(also canon), there will be smut, they’ll encounter Supercorp, and there will be a happy ending!
Relationship: Keith/Lance Word Count: 2936 Rating: General Tags: Dogs, Alternate Universe - Modern Setting, Established Relationship, Fluff Light Angst, If You Squint, Adoption Summary: Keith and Lance finally decide to adopt a dog, and they just happen to find the perfect one.
for @thespace-dragon for dealing with a crappy day at work. i hope this makes things at least mildly better <3
“God, I’m so nervous,” says Lance. Keith watches his arms move, hands likely wringing themselves under the table.
“Why?” asks Keith.
Lance gives him a look. “We’re adopting a dog, Keith. This is almost like adopting a baby. ”
“Is it, though?”
“Yes.” Keith gives him a flat look. “Oh, shut up.” It’s said with a bitterness, but one of Lance’s hands comes across the table, laying atop his own and squeezing for a moment. Keith flips his hand over, folding his fingers over Lance’s hand, and squeezes back.
thinking over it again, theres a theme of imbalance in A Second Spring thats really interesting. When Yang accuses Cinder of having poisoned Summer, and then that was apparently really the case, i was actually surprised. Not that Cinder would do something like that, but that Glynda would let her do it. Especially because Glynda had been so dedicated to stability, and it was emphasized that her and Cinder kept no secrets at all from each other after coming together like this.
But then i realized, that was the old Glynda, of the main timeline. This Glynda gave up on stability first the moment she choose to marry Cinder. It makes me think of their argument in chapter 6, how Glynda mentioned that one of them could bend to the other and come to their courts and live with them. How that would leave one of them without power, but they would be together. I think in A Second Spring, Glynda really did bend to Cinder, even though their titles and status became equal and i loved all the power couple stuff.
After choosing Cinder, Glynda almost always followed what she wanted even if it went against things she had previously been seriously invested in like the stability of the courts or traditions. Only thing i can think of is her objecting to Yang’s execution and getting it commuted to exile. Glynda doesn’t regret her choice. but at the same time theres a lingering sense that deep down she knows this isn’t the path that suited her best, such as when she calls herself a traitor to Ren instead of denouncing him.
If she had really been committed to this path 100% she should have killed him the moment he revealed his disloyalty and then rallied as much of the remains of the Spring Army to Cinder’s castle as possible to give them a fighting chance. Instead she goes off alone and lets Ren take the army, even though it finishes tying the noose around their necks.
In the end she couldn’t completely commit to this path, even though she does love Cinder and doesn’t regret choosing her.
Which makes it more clear why the main timeline is the one where Glynda burns the letter without reading it and this is just a oneshot AU of an AU. To have remained truly equal they would have had to remain separate, like this line from chapter 6 sums up nicely
More like two halves of a coin facing opposite directions, Glynda supposed, bound together but never looking towards an identical path.
because the things they both wanted were too different. So even in this AU where Glynda does what Cinder wanted, it doesn’t work out for them in the end (tho i really want them together and happy now lmao hence my thoughts of them as heroic spirits) and balance is only restored after their ends, though the effect of their lives definitely changed the world for the better in the long term, thanks to them being a common enemy that everyone had to unite against.
Kind of interested now to see a reverse AU of an AU where Cinder does what Glynda wanted instead… like, “Cinder inexplicably gives up the throne to live in Spring as Glynda’s wife” is probably not as interesting or epic a story, and it would be hell to somehow get Cinder to believably do that in character, but i bet ivory and roman could pull it off and make it interesting.
So I decided that I wanted to do a little activity or whatever where you ask for a song with a certain pairing or detail or whatnot and I do a fic/imagine on it. I have tons of songs on my playlist I have linked below since it’d take a billion gazillion years to list here. (Gazillion’s a word? It won’t red line it. XD XD XD)
This is just the beginning of a little something that came to me last night, I wrote it in my iPad notes so it isn’t formatted and is just a very brief teaser. I don’t know, if you like it let me know? I know I don’t have many followers but people in the tags as well let me know! Also if anybody wants I’d be up for doing some quick drabbles/imagines of any ship if you have any requests. I’m not amazing but I wanna get my creative juices flowing again, I’m a bit rusty!
Just as you expected his lips were dry against yours, you could feel the chapped skin against your lipstick primed lips.
As your lips met his, in what was quite possibly the briefest kiss in history, you realised your sorry mistake.
You realised the signals had been read wrong.
As he leant in closer to your shoulder, engrossed in your article not in you, you closed the gap between your faces and felt his body stiffen in response.
‘Oh shit.’ You pulled back in a quick darting motion, backing yourself out of the booth.
He remained unresponsive, his eyes wide like saucers.
'Oh shit, Jug -I, I didn’t- I don’t-’ you stuttered.
Jughead’s mouth moved as his eyes finally regained movement.
'I don’t-’ he began.
'No, I know - I know you don’t, Jug. I’m sorry, I don’t know what I was thinking.’ You interrupted, you were not quite sure what impulsed you to kiss Jughead Jones and you were perfectly aware that he had never indicted any other feelings apart from tolerance.
With a weak wave you scurried from the diner and into your truck, leaving the perplexed Jughead alone in the diner.
So I totally didn’t know about Band of Brothers Week going on until I saw @whip-pan‘s post, lol. It just so happened I was posting a Die Hard AU today, so hey… That said, I have many a BoB AU for your viewing pleasure in case you’ve missed them.

Rey wordlessly pulled
Luke’s first saber from her bag and Han almost laughed to see her hold it out
blade first. That girl needed someone to teach her to handle actual weapons –
she thought everything was her staff. So Finn had survived too, or at least had
given it to her. He cursed under his breath to see it. Bad luck, that was all
it meant to him now. The only good it had done was let him save Luke’s life
that night on Hoth.
Silence for a long
minute then Rey stepped closer. “Master Skywalker – this is yours.”
Han could read the
pain in Luke’s eyes, almost feel it. So much gone wrong in so short a time.
Everything they had fought for, dreamed of, gone.
Luke shook his head.
“It’s not mine anymore. You keep it, Rey, until you make your own.”
