What about something like Pining! Shiro with Confused/Oblivious! Lance? Like Shiro casually doing things for Lance and going out of his way sometimes and Lance just being like "?? Thanks?!" Meanwhile everyone else on the ship is like "How the hell does he not NOTICE?!" Prolly at the end or something Shiro, exasperated sits somewhere and Lance asks him whats wrong and shyly confesses.
Been so busy the last few days, but I finally found some time to write up something quick. I hope you enjoy it!
“How can he be so cute and yet so aggravating at the same time! I just want to grab by the arms and kiss him!”
“Then just do that. Since your ‘flirting’ doesn’t seem to be working on him.”
“Keith I can’t just do that! What if he isn’t into guys, or if he thinks I’m too old.”
“Shiro you are literally a year or two older, i don’t think he’ll think you’re too old. And I’m very sure he’s into guys. Just ask him out already!”
Shiro hangs his head off the bed and hides behind his hands with a frustrated groan. How is it that Lance can make him feel like he’s high school girl having trouble asking out the cute guy. He doesn’t know how to go up to him and just ask him out. No, instead he’s laying on Keith’s bed complaining about how much Lance makes him want to just scoop him and never let go.
“But I don’t want to seem overbearing. I’m the leader, I don’t want it to seem like he HAS to date me. I don’t want him to feel forced into it.”
He could hear Keith give out his own groan, feeling the bed give as Keith sits next to him. Shiro moves his hands so he can look at Keith, who looks about ready to shove Shiro right at Lance.
“I don’t know why you come to me with your crush problems. You know I have zero knowledge or need of romantic relationships. Just talk to him!”
Shiro opens his mouth to protest, but Keith beats him to the punch.
“And if you say that you can’t i will not hesitate to just tell him myself!”
“Now you’ll have to talk to him, or I will.”
With a defeated sigh, Shiro gets up from Keith’s bed, and with a solemn good night, leaves Keith’s room.
There has to be some way for Lance to get the hint that Shiro likes him. But he’s already tried most things. He’s tried flirting; Lance thought he was joking and merely shot cheesy flirts back while laughing his cute laugh, which did not help since each one of them kind of worked on Shiro. He’s tried giving him gifts; which Lance always thanks him for being such a good friend. And he’ll give him that warm smile that could melt Shiro’s heart if he looked at it for too long (which he was perfectly fine with, as long as he got to see such a sweet expression on Lance’s face) he’s even tried spending one on one time with lance; joining him on his spa days, walking with him whenever they go to a swap moon. But he’ll just call it ‘bro-time’ and be completely oblivious! It was so aggravating that Lance just doesn’t get how much he cares, how much he just wants to be with him.
What’s worse that EVERYONE else on the ship can see it, but Lance is so clueless to his advances. Shiro has already had ‘the talk’ with Coran, and while some of his threats didn’t make any sense, the tone alone was enough to know that whatever he was saying was not to be taken lightly. Pidge will always just give him that knowing smirk and will call Shiro out whenever she catches him staring at Lance for too long (but can you blame him?) Hunk has tried to help by getting Lance and Shiro some time alone, not that it ever works, but it’s still nice of him to help. Even Allura has caught on and has suggested some ways to getting Lance’s attention.
Wait. That’s it! Allura mentioned before about taking Lance out on a date. That might be it! There’s no way Lance wouldn’t be able to get the message if Shiro went all out. There’s no way.
The date went off great! When they landed on the nearest planet, Shiro took Lance to one of the restaurants that the king of the planet had suggested. While the food was a little…..exotic, they had a lot of fun trying it out, Shiro was even able to feed Lance. If that doesn’t scream romantic, shiro doesn’t know what does. After the meal, they went on a walk and talked endlessly about pretty much anything; the color of the sky on this planet to what their favorite music was.
It was perfect!
Once they got back to the castle, The rest of the team is waiting for them.
“So….how did it go?” Allura coos.
“That restaurant was great! It was nice getting out of the castle.” Lance replied.
“Did you two have fun out on your date?” Pidge blatantly states, not even looking up from her laptop.
“Date? Pidge I don’t know what you’re talking about….”
“This was just two guys hanging out and exploring a new planet.” Lance finishes. Leaving everyone dumbstruck, even Pidge looked up from her screen to give Lance an ‘are you serious?’ expression.
Lance doesn’t think it was a date.
“You can’t be serious?” Keith deadpanned.
“Yes I’m serious, mullet. What made you think it was a date?”
“What about it WASN’T A DATE!” Keith yells back.
Lance just answers him with a dismissive wave of his hand, beginning to walk out of the main corridor. “I’m gonna hit the hay, see you in the morning!”
And with that he turns into the next hallway and he’s gone.
Shiro can only look at the floor, crushed.
“Just how blind is he?” Pidge chirps up, giving him a pat on the back “nice try. I’m sure he’ll figure it out. Eventually.” She wishes everyone a goodnight and heads off on the same direction that Lance took. Hunk give him a big hug and whispered words about not giving up on Lance just yet, before he too left for his bed. Allura promises that she’ll help him think of some new idea tomorrow, and Coran simply wishes him a good night with a sympathetic ruffle of his hair. Once they too left for their bedchambers, Keith takes a hold of Shiro’s hand and leads him down to his own room, where he’s already stashed some of Hunk’s alien popcorn and an Altean movie that Pidge had added English subtitles too. It’s going to be a long night, but Keith isn’t going to let his brother wallow for too long. He’ll get Lance soon or later.

What a time to be alive! Emergency flowers! Call the triple numbers and a 24-hour hotline for flower talk ensures you get your peonies to your posse. Nothing salacious but sham flowers for sham weddings and cheating, sorry husbands. Flowers for late-night tittering around the allotment- means you fill the gaps in the hanging baskets. Flurries of roses to muffle the ultimatums texted in the early hours. Quick-fix seedlings to brighten a balcony before in-laws and their scrutiny. Gratuitous sunflowers for boisterous hipsters to sex and pile in pots. Bolstering in their blasé sunshine and multipacks. Flowers to spiral and pickle for the gastronaut and a seldom daisy for the astronaut, its delivery set a lightyear away.
Millennials have made it clear they most want career advancement and growth, something not every workplace can offer on demand. But in lieu of those opportunities, many companies are resorting to quick fixes in an attempt to shape culture. Whether it’s free snacks, Ping-Pong tables, or beer taps, these perks—like participation trophies before them—are trinkets that do not thoughtfully consider the symptoms of the problem before providing a treatment.
Vacation usage—a benefit repeatedly found to be more valued than raises, bonuses, and retirement plans—is a measure of trust and an important part of the work-life balance equation. Despite its value, a study by Project: Time Off revealed Millennials are not taking the vacation they earn. In fact, they are the most likely generation to forfeit time off, even though they receive the least amount of vacation days.
Research into Millennial vacation behavior shows they are afraid, not entitled. Compared to Boomers, Millennials are at least twice as likely to say they are fearful of losing their job. This cohort worries about what the boss might think, wants to show complete dedication, and does not want their bosses to see them as replaceable.
These findings are counterintuitive to the coddled Millennial stereotype that ignores the circumstances of the generation’s experience. Coming of age during an economic downturn has consequences.
