“I’m sorry. I’m so sorry for everything. I’m sorry if I’ve ever made you feel like you were less to me than Clark. You are the only reason I’ve ever felt at home on this planet.” “I’m just better when we’re together.”
First Cassian and Azriel appeared in the doorway. The High Lord’s general and Shadowsinger – and the most powerful Illyrians in history.
“Can he beat you?” – “Hand-to-hand combat? Yes. He’d have to earn it for a change, but he’d win. Cassian is the best warrior I’ve encountered in any court, any land. He leads my armies because of it.”
“I’ve witnessed Cassian rip apart opponents and then puke his guts up once the carnage stopped, sometimes even mourn them.”
“I saw Cassian trudging through the mud (…) bastards are given nothing: they find their own shelter, own food. If they survive and get picked to be in a war-band, they’ll be bottom-ranking forever, but recieve their own tents and supplies. But until then he’d stay in the cold.” – “Those mountains,” Azriel added, his face hard as ice,” offer some of the harschest conditions you can imagine.”

This piece of Cassian-meta is the most beautiful thing ever written. Thank you @highfaelucien, my dear Third, for blessing the world with this.
-Lance knows this, it’s why he spends hours just just watching Hunk work, keeping him company and telling him that it’s time to go to bed whenever it’s late
-Lately Hunk has been getting ready for the final battle with the Galra, taking inspiration from the trap they created intended for Allura and Coran
-It is a machine that will get its intended target into a never ending black hole, no time loops, no time jumps, just nothing
-And it seems like the machine works because they have experimented on inanimate objects and have tried everything possible to bring them back and once it becomes impossible they know that they can then build one on a bigger scale
-Hunk’s machine works and it will save the day but
-Something goes wrong with the machine, it was something that kept cropping up in the beta testing, it’s a certain screw that just never really wants to work
-And see the only people who know where the screw is and how to fix it are Lance and hunk
-And once you fix it, it’s game over, there no coming back from it
-Lance and hunk both know this
-Before Hunk can even go apologize or go fix it
-Lance is already on his way to the machine
-But just before he gets there, he stops and through the intercom tells Hunk “You are the best damn engineer and friend in this world, watch me make your machine work buddy”
-And hunk is just sobbing repeating “I love you Lance and please don’t do this, I can’t do this without you, I can’t do this without my best friend”
-And now the rest are starting to catch on to what Lance is really doing but by that point it’s too late the galra are gone
- Lance is gone
-And because Hunk is such a good fucking engineer there’s no way to ever get him back
-But you see it’s because Hunk is such a good engineer that he doesn’t give up
-He works non-stop for almost a year trying to get Lance back
-Pidge spends more time on the computer becoming more withdrawn, more obsessive in finding his family, including Lance
-Shiro takes it hard, he feels as if he’s let down his team for not being able to keep them all in one piece, he goes back to being very tense and stiff around the others
-Allura spends days, even weeks trying to find Lance, pinpoint where in all the universe he could be, she won’t say it but she misses his bad pick up lines
-And Coran is just hurt and upset that the young man who would get so homesick and yet try his best and be there for others would give up his chance to see his family and that is what pains him the most
-And Keith just starts spending even more time training, withdrawing from others, trying to act as if though he doesn’t miss Lance, trying to move on, failing to move on
-Hunk just well he needs to get Lance back because what is life without your best friend?
-Who just sits for hours on end just to watch you work and tinker
-A friend who has been there for so long they know what tool you need with a look
-A friend who knows that food isn’t the only important thing to but goddamn we need to find small things that bring us happiness
-A friend who makes you go to sleep when it’s late and you’ve been on a creating binge (the others don’t know but that’s okay the person who needs to know, does)
-A friend who just wants you to succeed
-A friend who loves you for who you are and ask for nothing in return
- A friend who would die for them, for him…..
-What is life without your best friend?
-Hunk already knows and he never wants to live through that again
-Because you see it’s because Hunk is such a good fucking engineer that he does get Lance back
It means so much for me. I come to the rink every day. I see how Sid works and I try follow him. It’s, like, I know he’s best player in NHL for the last two years, over the last 10 years, and I just try follow him. In practice I try to repeat what he does. When he scores I try do my best and score too, try just be better every day like him. He never stops. He tries to work hard every day, tries be better every day, and I look to him. …I’m a lucky guy to be here.
