taking chances

“Why go for ten thousand when we can go for a lifetime?”

“Is that a yes?”

“It is.”

Taking Chances Finale - Chapter 37 


I Met you through Taking Chances, Andrea, and to have it end is bittersweet but being able to read/work on/finish this fic MAKES ME TEAR UP BECAUSE IT’S PRETTY MUCH THE FOUNDATION OF OUR FRIENDSHIP WHICH IS CRAZY!!!!!(ch!23)!1!!!


They say, “Look before you leap.” So look. But do not look for too long. Do not look into the void of uncertainty trying to predict each and every possible outcome, to evaluate every possible mistake, to prevent each possible failure. Look for the opportunity to leap, and leap faster than your fear can grab you. Leap before you talk yourself out of it.

In celebration of the last chapter of Taking Chances and my dear friend @lightoflunaris birthday, I drew my favorite part of the last chapter.

I have loved this fic since the beginning, excitedly waiting for each update. It has made me feel so many emotions, I have loved all the angst and the fluffy moments and have enjoyed seeing how the characters grew through their experiences. 
It has also allowed me to meet one of my newest, but most amazing friends ever! Thank you @lightoflunaris for creating this AU and allowing me to create these artworks for you! Can’t wait to see your next project  ♥ 

A lifetime with you

So Taking Chances ended today, which makes me sad. @lightoflunaris did such an amazing job at this story and I can’t wait to see what she comes up with next. I wanted to write a klance fic for today and I guess I realized, while there were many romantic moments between our favourite boys, we didn’t have their first valentines. So I’m going to do my very best to write something for them. I’m going by the seat of my pants here and from what she told me about their college life. I assumed they got engaged I guess, in February/March, maybe February 14, for the sake of being sentimental. I’m writing this on Valentine’s Day itself, hours after the last chapters went up, so we’ll see how this goes. Enjoy.

Lance closed the door to his apartment and noticed that there were no boots by the door. He sighed, good Keith wasn’t back yet. While they did attend the same college, Lance was majoring in education while Keith was taking to courses needed to help him become a pilot, so their schedules didn’t always match up. Lance couldn’t say he was surprised when Keith said he wanted to be a pilot. Keith loved going places and he enjoyed adventure. Lance just couldn’t wait to see him in a uniform.

Lance pulled off his shoes and ran to drop his things in the bedroom. The couple’s apartment they got in the campus village was pretty amazing. It reminded him of a hotel room a bit. When walking in, you were in the living room with the attached kitchen. Through another set of doors was the bedroom and bathroom. The laundry room was in the basement of the building. Thankfully, they only lived on the second floor and the elevator never broke down. Never doubt the complaining powers of a college student. They get shit done when they really want.

Pushing his glasses back up on his face, Lance opened the fridge and pulled out a plastic bag hiding in the back on the last shelf. He opened it, mentally checking off his checklist of the things he needed before slowly pouring the constance of the bag on the counter. He pulled bowls and utensils out and pulled out his phone. The limited edition Blue Paladin phone Shiro and Allura had gotten him for his birthday was still in very good condition, mostly because of the clear case he had on it to take the damage whenever he dropped it. Keith had let his surprise be known that the screen had yet to break. He pulled up Hunk’s number and hit the speaker button as he got things ready.

“Hey Lance. Is Keith there?”

/// for @bogmoths ///

sometimes you need to say “fuck it”
and make that jump into the whirlpool

sometimes dancing badly to a good song
can teach you more about yourself
than 10,000 gurus could ever hint at

sometimes the whirlpool communicates
if you’re lucky, if you’re brave enough

sometimes the worst song in the world
–nothing but feedback– can illuminate
that part of yourself you thought was lost

and lost forever

///jams as in songs, but i guess it can be construed in other ways too depending on how you interpret this poem; also i hid a little reference to “metal machine music” by lou reed in here; it’s a difficult album to listen to but it’s a worthwhile experience in my opinion///

That means I’ll be posting both chapter 30 and 31 on either Christmas Eve or Christmas Day. 

*Infomercial voice* BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE!

Chapter 30 will contain heavy trigger warnings, so consider yourselves warned.

Anyway, I’d like to thank all of you. Thank you for the asks, likes, fanart (holy shit i still cant believe my story got fanart!) and to all the new friends I’ve made in the course of writing this story.

We’re nearing the end of our tale soon and I hope that we’ll all see to the final resolution, together.
