the greatest tag team that never was

Voltron fic recs, the fourth wall


So it’s been about six months since I’ve done a fic rec list. I’ve been asked a number of times to do this and I’ve read a lot of fic in that time so uh, I guess some of these are like my greatest hits of the last half year? 

Some are very popular and some are less well-known but no less deserving of praise, so go give them all some love!

As with any rec list, please pay attention to the tags and warnings

Trouble’s Making Everything Alright - 78k (WIP); klance; Keith and Lance crash-land on a lawless, low-tech planet and become rough and tumble mercenaries, donning leather coats and gun holsters, righting wrongs (while committing a few heists of their own) and fighting to get back to their team.

you never stood a chance - 12k; klance; Lance accidentally sends Keith a gym selfie snapchat with the caption “BET YOU WANNA LICK THESE NIPS” and promptly freaks out. Turns out to be one of the best mistakes he’s ever made.

King and Reaper - 35k; klance; The story of the destruction of Earth and its aftermath, feat. questionable science in regards to weapons of mass destruction, gratuitous Star Wars references, theoretical chess games with the emperor of most of the known universe, explosions, the greatest bromance of all time, the worst romance of all time and many more things besides.

nothing’s quite as sweet - 50k; klance; Keith is a barista who hates his job. Lance works at the cat shelter across the street. When Keith finds abandoned kittens behind the store and in a panic goes to Lance for help, he kicks off a chain of events that includes kitten cuddles, coffee experimentation and a whole heap of fluff.

Foreign Scenes - 110k; klance; Lance is travelling across Europe and keeps bumping into Keith sneaking past “no trespassing” signs in an attempt to get better photograps. Basically an AU in which Lance and Keith become impromptu travel buddies and get into trouble.

You and I Collide - 55k (WIP); klance; Lance likes to sing in the shower. Keith lives in the apartment next door and the walls are not very thick. And you can bet when Lance wakes him up at 7:30 in the morning, Keith has something to say about it.

Pulsar - 31k (WIP); klance; A story about college, coming to terms with your past, being scared of your future, and running into crazy things like love somewhere in-between.

Ignorance is Bliss - 161k (WIP but almost done); klance; As it turns out, learning that your house is haunted makes the ghosts a lot more aggressive. Who knew? Ah, well. At least one of them is hot. And he’s the less-evil one, too, so that’s always a plus.

the potential of you and me - 15k; klance; The summer after freshman year of college, Lance drags Keith back to their hometown to hang out. But the two of them rarely spend time together without Hunk and Pidge around, because things had a way of getting out of hand real quick. This summer is… no different.

Deepest Shade - 40k (WIP); klance; Lance, idle middle son of the Álvarez family – shippers and traders, backbone of the galaxy, the epitome of self-made wealth – is drifting. Keith Kogane has been a thorn in Lance’s side since the day he was adopted by the powerful rival clan, but he can’t deny that Keith is incredibly attractive. A chance encounter at an Altean dinner party makes him realize the attraction might be mutual.

HEY! Hey. So I have a few ideas for this trio, but I’m still kind of feeling out how to write them. But I’m so excited for this to be a Thing, that I wanted to just start writing and see where it took me. This is based off of @tozawas lovely little headcanons, so really you can thank her for this.

BUT UH, YEAH - here it goes:

Survivor Series Preview: The Shield vs. The New Day

At Survivor Series, two of the greatest factions in WWE history will go head-to-head when The Shield battle The New Day in a dream showdown that everybody wanted to see, but never saw coming.

Prior to Nov. 6, Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins were standing tall as the Raw Tag Team Champions and were poised to battle SmackDown Tag Team Champions The Usos at WWE’s fall classic, Roman Reigns was on the shelf, and four-time Tag Team Champions The New Day were driving their opponents crazy on the blue brand and waging unforgettable battles with Jimmy & Jey for the SmackDown Tag Team Titles.

However, that all changed at the end of Monday Night Raw, when Kofi Kingston, Big E and Xavier Woods suddenly reemerged in Team Red territory, teasing “Under Siege Part II” and inciting a commotion that cost Ambrose & Rollins to lose their championships to Cesaro & Sheamus.

The following week, a fully reunited Shield interrupted Raw Commissioner Stephanie McMahon during her tense encounter with General Manager Kurt Angle and challenged The New Day to a Raw vs. SmackDown slugfest. The rest, as they say, is history.

Forget the numbers advantage. Forget psychological warfare. At Survivor Series, get ready as two of the most dominant trios ever to step into a WWE ring show up and throw down. Will The Power of Positivity triumph at WWE’s second-longest running pay-per-view? Or will The Hounds get their justice? Find out this Sunday, streaming live on the WWE Network, with a special start time of 7 ET/4 PT.

theyre pretty onesided for most, if not all of high school.  (Well either theyre one sided, or wakatoshi doesnt realize his feelings until much later than tendou has realized his own).  When Tendou comes to Shiratorizawa, he has alot of excuses. Sure he made it because he was wanted on the team, but he is still hung up on his history of being left out and bullied by his middle school and elementary teammates.  He makes excuses for why he’s not going to be up to par, or why he isnt going to meld well with the team.  The first thing Ushijima ever says to him when they meet is along the lines of ‘So? You made it onto this team because you fit in, so stop worrying.’

Consider Tendou’s heart stopped, and desperately needin an electric shock of ushijima’s love. His affections for Ushijima start pretty pathetically, clinging on to one of the few people who is actually decent to him.  Tendou takes advantage of any time he can get to spend with Ushijima, whether it been in practice or crashing into Ushijima’s classroom during lunch.  He’s just so desperate for Ushijima to be his friend, to get a little bit more of his blunt kindness.  It’s from this craving for friendship that Tendou starts to develop romantic feelings for Ushijima that he just pushes away because he kind of wonders if Ushijima could even feel that way about someone else.Not like he had doubts that Ushijima was his friend, because he knew he was.He just….doubted Ushijima could care about him in the way he wants.  

So he’s satisfied to remain Ushijima’s friend, as long as he gets to hang around him with no consequence.

I can see Tendou following Ushijima to college. And thats why he decides to quit volleyball.  he’s not the greatest in school, but he knows he can work hard enough to pass the entrance exam of Ushijima’s chosen university but he could never practice hard enough to be what a university team wants in a player.  But he can’t bring himself to be left behind again.  Ushijima is oddly fine with Tendou tagging along.  He enjoys Tendou’s company, he always has.  He finds that he’s dissappointed that Tendou isnt going to be playing with him anymore, but he’s also really happy  that Tendou is coming with him so they can still spend time together everyday.

Ushijima’s feelings awaken slowly, while Tendou is still pining away.  Tendou tries to go on dates when he’s convinced himself Ushijima will never feel the same way but nothing ever feels right.  After a couple dates with different people, Ushijima tells Tendou that he feels lonely when he goes out with someone else. 

It’s not like Ushijima is incapable of describing his own feelings, it just takes a while for him to realize that the kind of ‘like’ he feels for Tendou is different than what he feels for Tendou.  When Tendou gets an inkling that Ushijima may have a crush on him that he’s not vocalizing, he asks him a bunch of questions about how he feels around Tendou.  And when he’s done, he just tells him something along the lines of ‘Well doesn’t that mean you like me, Wakatoshi?’  ‘Of course I like you, we’re friends.’ ‘No, Toshi.  I mean you liiiiiike me.’

‘Oh. Well I think thats true too.’

When Ushijima realizes he has more romantic feelings for Tendou, its like a switch flips inside him and Tendou doesnt know how to handle it.  He wants to provide for Tendou, to take care of him and give him what he wants.  Tendous a little put off by it at first, because he really didnt want Ushi to act any different when they started dating. He just wanted him to still act like Ushi, just maybe with a few more smooches and cuddles and other displays of affection.  But Ushijima is open to Tendou’s concerns, and pretty quickly they find a comf balance in their relationship
