A spread of traditional mezes photograph by Peden & Munk
“Meze, which is a selection of small dishes served to accompany alcoholic drinks as a course or as appetizers before a main dish. A big part of the dining experience in Eastern Mediterranean, Middle Eastern, and Arab countries. The word “meze” means “taste” and/or “snack.” The concept is very similar to the tapas of Spain,”
•Lance has been colorblind all his life. He helps out at his family’s Plant and flower shop. He grows the plants and flowers but never arranges them.
•Keith gets recruited by Shiro at the bookstore and school supplies Allura’s family owned after he dropped college. He hits it off with Pidge when the word cryptid was out.
•The first time Lance met Keith was when his friend Pidge was to busy to help him so he came up to Keith and asked to help him pick paint colors for his little sister.
•It was the first time Keith met someone colorblind and it fascinated him.
•It was the first time Lance ever met somone who was fascinated by him. All the other people always reacted with pity which got kind of annoying in the long run.
•They all always looked at his eyes sadly like they wanted to fix it.
•Keith on the other hand couldnt stop looking at Lance’s eyes and accidentally blurted out how pretty they were.
•(hear Pidge saying Gaaaaay from across the store)
•Lance being Lance, found that (and Keith) extremely cute and started flirting with the shy boy.
•They eventually started dating and Lance’s family had fallen in love with Keith when he fixed the flower shop’s delivery car for free and started helping delivering flowers and plants as a side job during weekends.
•(the deliveries always got on time but Lance’s brother in the passenger’s seat always feared for his life.)
•After years, Keith finally raised enough money to buy Enchroma glasses for Lance, he asked his family if they could arrange the flowers in the shop into a multitude of colors and his little siblings to draw something colorful for their big bro.
•Ha asked Pidge to record and he also asked Hunk to cook up something tasty and colorful. (he made a rainbow cake)
•When everything wa ready and everyone was gathered in the shop Keith finally surprised Lance with the sunglasses.
•Lance cried. He kept picking and touching every flower and plant in awe and he cried even more when his siblings showed him their drawings and told him what color was each when he asked.
•When he sees Keith’s eyecolor, he decides then and there that purple was his favorite.
•He gawked at the cake Hunk made and almost sobbed when Hunk said it was all Keith’s idea.
•He also made Keith cry that day when he went down on one knee and pulled out an engagement ring.
