Okay but guys I was inspired last night and I thought, “what about that au where Lance was on the Kerberos mission???”
And I was like, “Holy crap I gotta write this shit now” so here I am
-The Garrison decided to have a special, one-spot-only for a cadet in the top class at the Garrison in order to boost publicity for the launch of the Kerberos mission
-They inputed a bunch of tests and shit in order to make sure the cadet was actually qualified to go to Kerberos
-Lance was originally not going to go because “It’s just gonna be a mission to find more boring space ice!”
-But then Hunk started explaining that it was probably a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity because it would look so good on his career and it would practically sky-rocket a lifetime as a fighter pilot
-So Lance hits the books hard
-However, surprise surprise, Keith is competing for it as well.
-So insert all of this time competitively studying and trying to scope out the competition (but everyone knows that that’s not the only thing they’re checking out ;-) )
-After the testing is all over and done with, it is revealed that Lance one by ONE point
-Lance is ecstatic
-The training with Shiro, Matt, and Samuel begin (because they have to make sure all of the crew members know what to do, and if they’ll even work together)
-Matt and Lance become instant best friends and have weird nicknames for each other (because they’re both brothers, giant memes, and secretly cry themselves to sleep at night)
-Lance and Mr. Holt are pretty friendly, because Mr. Holt is a nice guy and they work well together
-Shiro is a tougher nut to crack, because he feels like Lance just isn’t as serious as Keith would be in this situation, but he does eventually grow to love Lance like a son
-EVENTUALLY (gotta have that sweet Langst, amiright)
-Lance learns about Katie/Pidge from Matt and Mr. Holt’s MANY stories about them (Matt: Oh remember that time that Katie did this…), and grows a sort-of friendship with Keith because Shiro is Keith’s adopted brother and you cannot tell me otherwise
-Then the launch happens
-Lance promises to send transmissions to Hunk every week, and they will both miss each other
-Keith has developed a sort-of crush by the time the launch happens, but he tells himself he’ll make sure that it’s real before he ruins what he has with Lance
-Then the mission goes south.
-And they don’t come back.
-Everyone is distraught. Lance’s family is broken, Hunk is horrified, and Keith is angry.
-Keith ‘drops out’ (but is really expelled) from the Garrison after ‘behavioral issues’ (he tried to find out more about Kerberos)
-Hunk is trying to find out more, but he doesn’t want to get expelled so he has to do it very sparingly and quickly
-Hunk and Pidge see the crash-landed pod from outer space and both think “Is that Lance/My family?”
-Surprise, surprise, it’s Space Dad himself, screaming ‘bout aliens.
-Keith joins them
-They go and find the Blue Lion
-But, it just opens up for all of them instead of Lance, saying that she will take them to where they need to go, but none of them are worthy enough to pilot her
-Keith and Pidge theorize it’s because the Lion is an ancient force only able to be wielded by some sort of deity (or some other conspiracy theory)
-They go to the castle
-And we’ll see what happens next ;-)))))))
Tell me if you want more and I’ll make another one :D
