    Summary

    “Wait,” Lance said. “You mean you don’t know how to swim?”

    Keith shrugged, looking unconcerned. If anything he seemed amused by Lance’s widening eyes.

    “Dude!” Lance exclaimed. “What the fuck, man?!”

    “Lance, I grew up an orphan in the desert. Where the fuck would I learn how to swim?”

    “Why didn’t you tell us—tell me?!” he retorted. “What if you got stranded on a water planet and drowned, Keith? Or a Blade mission has you sent to retrieve some magic-techno device from the bottom of a lake, or something? Keith!”

    --

    In which Keith learns how to float and Lance tells him to stay.

    Summary

    “Did they really call you bug boy?” he finally asks. Lance squeezes his eyes shut, hands stilling on Mr. Snuggles’ head. Mr. Snuggles clicks his fangs at him affectionately, before carefully climbing off his lap until he settles snugly beside him.

    “Yeah,” Lance whispers. He musters a smile, somehow, trying to diffuse the situation before he cracks. “I didn’t actually mind that one, though. Of all the names they gave me, bug boy was my favourite. I didn’t even know it was an insult until Hunk told me, ha. I thought it was a compliment.”

    Pidge looks stricken. “They called you names?”

    “A couple,” Lance says, shrugging. Shit shit shit. This is getting worse.

    OR: After Hunk tells an amusing story of another buggy Lance shenanigan, some deeper issues come to light. Apparently, being a bug lover comes at a price, and a steep one at that.

    Summary

    “Why would Lance and I need to play couple?”

    Shiro isn’t even bothering to hide his smirk, the rat bastard. “You two are the only viable and believable option, and you know the Colern’e will only speak to couples.”

    Lance finally decides to take pity on Keith’s poor ass and speaks up. “Okay, but to Keith’s point, why us specifically?”

    Shiro smiles serenely at Lance (who Shiro’s been calling his brother-in-law simply because it drives Keith insane and he is, as previously mentioned, a rat bastard). “Pidge is not playing couple with anyone. You and Hunk can’t go, because you’d laugh the whole time —“ point, unfortunately — “Allura doesn’t want to do it, and I am simply retired and don’t have to.”

    Summary

    "No offense but besides myself, Keith is like the hottest person on this team," Lance says.

    His teammates remain silent, their eyes wide as they all stare at him. Maybe that wasn’t the best thing to say. He didn't mean to insult anyone; though he guesses starting off a sentence with ‘no offense’ confirms that he already plans on offending someone. It kind of just slipped out.

    He's about to apologize when he realizes abruptly that they haven't been staring at him this entire time but specifically over his shoulder. Pidge’s face begins to break out into a grin.

    Lance’s shoulders slump. "He's right behind me, isn't he?"

    “I am.”

    (or, the five times Lance calls Keith hot and the one time Keith says it to Lance)

    Summary

    Not once, in the two years they were on that space whale, did Kosmo follow even one of his commands. ‘Sit?’ No. ‘Stop jumping on people?’ Don’t kid yourself. ‘Please stop screaming at the moon in the dead of night when I’m trying to sleep?’ Forget it. ‘Fetch?’ In your fucking dreams. At first, Keith was like, okay. Whatever, you know? Maybe alien dogs don’t do commands. Maybe Kosmo doesn’t speak English. Krolia tried a few commands in Galran, to no effect. Eventually, he and Krolia gave up. It was fine. Kosmo was a pretty well behaved dog when he wanted to be, which was occasionally. He just didn’t follow commands — he can’t! He’s incapable.

    And then Kosmo met Lance, and Keith knew his dog was a dirty liar.
    ---
    OR: Kosmo listens to Lance. It drives Keith batty.
