    Summary

    A vaguely academic examination of the phenomena behind fandom shipping and why certain non-canon ships become exceedingly popular, far overshadowing the popularity of canon ships. This essay touches on common mistakes writers make with female characters and romantic subplots, and suggests a explanation for the enduring popularity of so many m/m ships which have no chance at all of becoming canon. Examples are drawn from Avatar the Last Air Bender, Voltron Legendary Defender (god help me), and My Hero Academia.

    Summary

    Creatively speaking, Lance is stumped. Academically speaking, he’s totally fucked. He’s a fourth-year film major in dire need of a subject for a final assignment. Luckily enough, his friend Pidge gets a sudden phone call from a childhood friend in need of her help, and she strikes a deal with him that just might save Lance’s chance at graduation (that is, if he and this guy Keith can set aside their animosity long enough to actually get something done.)

    Summary

    The compartment door slid open a crack and a tan-skinned face peeked in. Finding the place practically empty, the young boy opened the door the rest of the way and stepped past the threshold. His eyes were blue like the ocean with flecks of grey and white, his hair the color of light-roast coffee and kept relatively close to his skull. The hints of freckles could be seen along his nose; and when he smiled shyly, one dimple showing itself in his left cheek, Keith felt his heart flutter at the sight.

    “Hi, can I maybe sit with you, please? My friends aren’t on the train yet, but they’re really nice.”

    Keith blinked at the boy before nodding his head. “Sure, there’s plenty of room.”

    The boy beamed at that, shuffling inside with a small owl cage in one hand, closing the compartment back up with his other. “I’m Lance, by the way. Lance McClain. What’s your name?”

    “I’m Keith Kogane. Nice to meet you, Lance.”

    Summary

    He was running away from his problems. He knew that. And he felt bad about lying to the team, but he'd tell them eventually. He just needed to work up to it - needed to calm his nerves, needed to catch his breath. And then he'd tell them. And then he'd be ready to face her.

    Or following the events of s05, a furious and confused Keith finds himself retreating to the safety of the Castle, of his friends, to try and clear his head.

    Summary

    A Dragon familiar is the last thing Lance expects to summon when he graduates lowest in the class at the Magerium. All he wants to do is summon a toad or a cat and get to work, but summoning a High Magic creature like a Dragon is something no one has done in hundreds of years. The Dragon, named Keith (why, WHY is he named Keith), is trained to be a familiar for the most powerful of mages. Unluckily for him, Lance is assigned the task of lesser potions master. Lance has to navigate a precarious balance of grumpy-Dragon-with-nothing-to-do on top of his workload of boring tasks. That’s when he isn’t enduring the ridicule of the other students, who believe him to be “Star Cursed.” To make matters worse, discontent in the Magerium is brewing and it might mean danger for all High Magic creatures, which currently includes one Dragon named Keith.
