the guy said it felt like a nervous tick

수능 치고 나오는 다른 애들은 막 부모님이 태워가고 친구들끼리 수능 끝났으니 어디가자 막 그러는 게 다 들렸음 혼자 회색 목도리 칭칭 두르고 다시 가로수길 가로질러가는데 나 혼자 흑백인 기분 올 때보다 갈 때가 더 멀어 보였음

The other kids who finished the college entrance exam were picked up by their parents, friends gathered after it finished to discuss where to go. I wrapped my grey scarf around (my neck) and walked through garosugil again but at that time, walking alone (like that), it gave me feeling like I was the only one in black and white.

걸어가는데 수십수만 가지 기분이 들더라 12년 학교생활이 드디어 끝난 건가 싶기도 하고 쟤들은 좋겠다 난 연습하러 가야 하는데 아 나도 부모님이랑 밥 먹고 싶다 뭐 이런 생각들?

On my way back, thousands of emotions sprung from me, “my 12 years of school life has finally finished?”, “It must be nice for them to be able to do things with friends”, “I have to go practice though”, “Ah I also want to eat with my parents”, I had these kind of thoughts?

걸어서 숙소 갔는데 동생들이 시험 잘 봤냐고 물어 보더라 잘 봤을 리가 있겠나 그냥 시험지 잘 보고 왔다고 했다 시험치고 온 그 날도 못잤다 이상한 기분이 들어서 허무하기도 하고 여러가지 생각이 들었음

I walked home and they asked me how the exam was. I said, “How could I do well…I just stared at the paper.” I couldn’t sleep that night, either. It was weird. I felt empty and had so many things going on my mind.

나도 그랬는데 너희라고 안 그럴까 그러니 긴장하지 말고 떨지 말고 차분히 시험 봐라 모르면 3번 찍고 솔직히 학창시절 기억에 남는 일 있냐고 물어보면 없다고 이야기한다 진짜 기억이 안 난다 18살 이후의 학창시절은 특히 더

I was like that, no different from you guys so don’t be nervous and tremble and calmly take the exam. If you don’t know (the answer) then tick the 3rd one, honestly, if you were to ask me what I remember from my days being a student at school, I would say ‘nothing’. I really don’t remember. Even more, my life as a student after I turn 18.

18살 때부터 고등학생 2학년 고등학생 3학년이 아니라 연습생 1년 차 연습생 2년 차였었다 진짜로 수능장 갈 때 떨렸던 게 사실 설렜던 거였을지도 18살 이후론 수학여행이고 소풍이고 못 갔었으니

From when I was 18, I wasn’t a 2nd grade high schooler, a 3rd grade high schooler, I was a 1 year trainee, 2 year trainee. It could be that I was in fact fluttered and not nervous when I was on my way to the college entrance exam location. From after I turned 18 years old, I couldn’t even go on school trips or outings.

내일 수능치고 마음껏 놀아라 잘치든 못치든 12년간 지겹도록 경쟁만 했으니 놀아야지 술은 먹지말고 아직 미성년자니까 20살 되면 마시셈 난 수능치고 그 날 연습했음 진짜로 그리고 숙소에서 다 같이 밥먹었음

After the exam, go play as much as you want. Whether you do well or not, you deserve that time for competing for 12 long years. Don’t drink alcohol since you are still underage. Do it after you turn 20. I had to practice after the exam. I’m serious. Then I ate in our dorm with other trainees.

그렇게 수능 치고 멍하게 며칠 있으니까 스무 살. 나의 스무 살 1월 1일은 술도 아니고 클럽도 아니고 가족과 함께 부산에 간 거다 진짜 바다밖에 안 보이는 이상한 곳이었음 유배당한 기분 난 스무 살 되면 진짜 뿅 하고 인생이 스펙타클해지는 줄 알았다

I turned 20 after a few days of (my thoughts) blankly (wandering off). My 1st January as a 20 year old wasn’t drinking or clubbing, it was going to Busan with my family. A weird place where there really wasn’t much besides the sea. It felt like I was exiled (from society) and I thought that when I turn 20, my life will turn into a ‘bbyong’ spectacular

근데 안 그러더라 수능도 그렇게 스무 살도 그렇고 다 특별할 줄 알았는데 별거 없었다 진짜 그러니까 떨지 말라고 별거 아니니까 주관식 모르겠으면 0 아니면 1이라더라 난 0으로 했던거 같다 맞았는지 틀렸는지 기억도 안남

But I was wrong. The college entrance exam and turning 20 were not that big of a deal. So don’t be nervous, it’s really nothing. If you don’t know any of the short-answer math questions, write 0 or 1. I wrote 0, although I don’t remember if I got it right or not.

진짜 별거 아니다 그니까 떨지 말고 긴장하지 말고 더도 말고 덜도 말고 한 만큼만 하고 와라 아침에 부모님이 태워주신다고 하면 네 알겠습니다 하고 타고 가고 괜히 짜증 내지 말고

It’s really nothing biggie. Don’t freak out or get nervous. Just do as much as you have prepared, neither more nor less. If your parents ask you to give you a ride, be polite and say yes. Don’t be mean to them.

수능 못 칠 수도 있지 하지만 이왕 치는 거 잘 치고 와라 2016 대입 수능 다들 대박 나고 답 밀렸다고 울지 말고 정신 차리고 마킹하고 이제 우유랑 상추 먹고 자려고 해야지 한 열한시나 열두시에 잠들 테니 얼른 우유랑 상추 먹고 자라

It’s OK to mess up, but while you are at it, do well. Hope everyone does well on the 2016 college entrance exam. Don’t cry if you mark your answers wrong. Stay focused when you are doing it. You should go drink milk and eat lettuce now so you can fall asleep by 11 pm or 12 am. Go get milk and lettuce and sleep already.

잘자고 시험잘쳐라 화이팅 빠이빠이

Goodnight and do well in your exams, fighting, byebye

Summary: In the immediate aftermath of the Battle of Naxzela, Allura needs to see Keith, knowing full well of his intent to commit suicide, and his inner struggles.

Genre: Romance, angst, hurt/comfort.

Content warnings: None, except for some snogging at the end.

Rating: T

Comments:  I don’t think I’ve ever felt as scared for a fictional character as I’ve felt for VLD Keith Kogane. I’ve liked Voltron for a long time. Keith is the heart and soul of Voltron. So I was at first angry, then devastated when I learned the writers had written him off the show to join the Blade of Marmora, especially considering how he doesn’t fit in with them at all. So I wrote this. How did you guys like it? Do you agree with me? Please let me know!
