space dads au

  • Keith: do you ever drink so much coffee, that you feel kind of dizzy, them like the world is moving in slow motion, and then like your drifting through time and temporal space, and then like you can see everything and nothing, while at the same time being lost in the void?
  • Lance: .... no?
  • Shiro: *nodding in the background*

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 

*ahem* so:

-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

-Enter Pidge

-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

“So how fast do you think she can go?” Lance asked as he finally turned away from the vast space before them.

“Honestly,” Shiro started in and rested a hand on an upper console of black’s cockpit to lean a bit better over Lance’s shoulder, “I can only answer that as really, really fast. I’m sure there’s a speed gauge somewhere. If only I knew Altean.”

“Because you definitely need to know in case you get pulled over by a space cop,” Lance laughed before dropping his voice to imitate someone with authority, “‘sir do you know why I pulled you over? No? You were going thirty thousand in a twenty thousand asteroid zone. Wait a minute! Aren’t you the escape convict!? Isn’t this the emperor’s lion! I’m takin’ you in!’ “

Shiro laughed at that cracking a wide grin, “least I know if that does happen and I get taken in like that I’ve got a rather handsome blue paladin to come rescue me.”

“Mhmm every single time, babe. You know it,” Lance grinned cheekily a faint blush dusting his cheeks and ears.

“Mmm my hero.”

So I ran with that idea I had awhile ago about Shiro letting Lance sit in the black lion’s chair as a way of wooing him. So here it finally is! I had a ton of fun with the backgrounds and I hope you guys enjoy these little things I post about this au now and then.
