Keith looked up at him then while drinking the coffee and Lance saw something shift in his eyes but he couldn’t understand what. He smiled once again at Lance as he set the mug aside, head tilted just a little to the side. Enough to make Lance want to scream at how cute he looked.
Keith let out a huff of breath, almost like he was laughing at himself, and without warning he leaned in and kissed Lance on the check.
Now Lance was sure that he wasn’t breathing. He could hear the beating of his heart in his own ears and his vision became a little blurry with all the blood that suddenly went to his face, his knees felt a little weak and his arms were useless at his side. He was gone for sure but he still heard the two words Keith whispered in his ear. “Thank you.”
I’d like to thank the author for writing this beautiful fic because it’s freaking perfection this has been a PSA
u know whats great? that lance has honestly taught me that its okay to be a guy and care about beauty, that its not just a feminine thing and even if it was that there’s nothing wrong with that!
the only other times in movies or tv i’ve see a man wear a face mask or pamper himself is when someones using it for humor- haha look at that guy, he’s not manly at all! he must be gay! thats not something boys do!
lance enjoys pampering himself and feeling pretty and it’s not just used as joke, it’s a part of his nature and no one else points it out or scoffs at it
that just makes me really happy and honestly that precious boy has allowed me to accept certain parts of myself i didn’t at first
you can be a boy and have a beauty routine, you can take care of your skin, its a relief finally seeing that validated and i really appreciate the voltron writers for giving us this part of lance, because it’s so so important! i love him!
I’m sorry I’ve been so absent recently. Excuses, excuses etc. etc. but basically I’ve had a bazillion work socials, commissions up the wazoo and am severely lacking in sleep. These things combined do not make for good artings.
Have some more fic recs! Knock yourselves out. See if you can spot the thing I said I wasn’t interested in and would probably never read >__> Ahaha ha look how that turned out…
As with any rec list, please pay attention to the tags and warnings <3
all we have to do - 19.5K; klance; Keith gets hurt during a mission, and Lance is not sure how to handle that.
To the Universe and Back with You - 10k (WIP); klance; When Keith took off after the Galra empire fell he left Lance with a broken heart and a whole lot of resentment. Fast forward seven years later and Lance is the only paladin living on Earth, with his cat Peaches for company. It’s not perfect, but he’s happy. That is, until Shiro summons them to form Voltron again…
it’s quite bizarre, and will remain this way - 16.5k; klance; Keith is determined to keep his head down while serving out his community service volunteering at the Rex Alfor Memorial Space Muesum, but one rather loud member of staff won’t leave him alone…
shining like the stars - 139k (WIP); shklance; In a bid to help strengthen team Volron and their lion bonds, Allura takes the paladins on a pilgrimage to face the trials in the paladin temples. Keith unexpectely presenting as an omega rather throws a rather large spanner in the works…
Stormchasing - 18k; klance; Lance never intended to spend his vacation chasing after Keith’s premonitions, but here he is. Keith makes bad decision, Lance makes mistakes, and both of them are stuck together on a space pirate adventure neither of them asked for.
Purple Marks and Bleeding Hearts - 46.5k (WIP); klance;
Lance’s newest job is not what the sniper signed up for when he joined team Voltron. This mark shouldn’t be any different from the other Galra, but he is.
Feel the Bonds - 53.5k; klance; Being a paladin of Voltron is honestly the coolest thing that ever could’ve happened to Lance, but the people who should know probably never will. And despite their fighting, Keith is there for him when Lance is feeling particularly homesick.
-Give me a Lance that tries to keep his feelings hidden; the Lance that tucks his problems in his back pockets to think about in his own time.
-Give me a Lance that doesn’t want to talk about his problems, because he doesn’t want to burden anyone with them.
-Give me a Lance that for once in his life isn’t actually looking for attention, because he knows there’s a war going on and his feelings aren’t going to solve anything.
-Give me a Lance who knows that his teammates love and appreciate him, but it still HURTS when they make jokes about his feelings, credibility, or his dedication to their cause.
-Give me a Lance that isn’t as good at fighting like Keith, good with technology like Pidge, good at engineering or cooking like Hunk, a natural-born leader like Shiro or Allura, handy like Coran, but can always come up with a good plan and is loyal to a fault.
-Give me a jack-of-all-trades Lance, who might not be proficient in any particular skill, but has a knack for doing the things he needs to do.
-Give me a Lance who’s smart in a different way, not in the way Pidge is, but his own way that is just as important and intelligent.
-Give me a Lance who, underneath his loud proclamations and arrogance, has insecurities that he needs to work through.
-Give me a Lance character arc with him overcoming these habits and feelings, growing into a respected member of team Voltron.
-Give me a Lance who will eventually learn to love himself, flaws and all; a Lance who understands that he will always be part of Voltron, even if sometimes it might not seem like he is.
