Lance has got lots and lots of dreams. He wants to buy his mom a house, take his siblings on vacations, and be a pilot! Lance just wants a good life. And to get that "good life", Lance is willing to take it in exchange for a few years of hell. How bad could college be?
Getting to that perfect life meant he had to make a few sacrifices. Or take out a few loans. Three to be exact. One from his "uncle" Coran, another from a student bank that was collecting interest quickly, and one from a... less than forgiving loan shark.
Unfortunately for Lance, his part-time job at The Castle Diner wasn't going to cover the bills. Fortunately for Lance, he knows a little dirty secret spot in the city where he can find desperate old men willing to throw cash his way (without him doing any dirty work).
Life is simple. Rough, but simple for Lance. That was until he stumbled upon the mysterious, and slightly too edgy, Keith one night. Lance is drawn into Keith's life and quickly soon after Shiro's. Although all seems well at first Lance quickly realizes there may be more than meets the eye when it comes to the two men. Some things are too good to be true, but is it all worth it?
Lance McClain was gone.
He died along with the lives of countless others, all taken at the hands of his bosses.
Lance was gone, leaving only Leandro Sanchez.
Leandro Sanchez, a mystery man (if you could even call the lanky twenty year old one), put on a hard mask, even though on the inside he was a mass of paranoia, a swirling ball of guilt and pain.
But he had to wear a mask. He had to keep his past in the past. Even if there were some things he wanted to remember, he has to forget. Otherwise, he can't be convincing.
Lance McClain, having gotten himself tangled in the Mafia, went into witness protection. Unfortunately, he was found and had to make a run for it. He goes to his friends, whom he had left without a note 3 years ago. They are mad, but soon realize there is more danger than they expected. (Shklance)

(CURRENTLY ON HIATUS)
Lance and Keith share a moment as Shiro is sleeping. Feelings are revealed.
Lance is overworked, underpaid, and in his second year of college. When he hears about an intriguing, new, vampire-related way to earn some extra money he decides to check it out, and is surprised to find himself in a deal with not one, but two vampires.
The hand shifts, reaching upward as the shot widens to reveal a man scaling the side of a steep cliff. He’s long and lean, compactly muscled and wiry in the way that someone who lifts their own body weight on a daily basis tends to be. His shoulders are tanned from the summer sun, black hair whipping wildly around his face as he scales the rocks with nothing more than his own two hands and a determined set to his jaw.
He’s All-American wet dream pretty, and Shiro is struck dumb.
The camera drone flies further and further away, revealing an endless landscape of gulches and gorges, bright blue sky overhead. The Voltron logo appears, a professional voice-over marking the end of the commercial spot.
“Voltron makes you soar!”
