he can handle this one: winding up stranded, a million lightyears away
from home, with only Keith to keep him company.The universe is cruel.

His name. Someone was saying his name again. He cracked his eyes
open, looked up blearily at Lance, saw his mouth moving and finally put

Plenty of other fics that don’t fit my personal reading preference are on AO3, so you should check them out if you have time! (I tend to avoid character death fics or really short ones.)
