Chapter Text

bi boh bitch: all im saying is I would have totally won if u hadnt so rudely deprived me of ammo before shoving me in the middle of a marshmallow war against team shadam (09:52 AM) 

 

space ace: youre just mad because you lost 

 

bi boh bitch: they had an unfair advantage!! 

 

space ace: youve defeated homicidal aliens with way less 

space ace: i dont see what the problem is 

 

bi boh bitch: the problem, pidge, is that I didnt get to finish my pancakes  

 

Adam s.: you know there's plenty more where that came from, Lance 

  

bi boh bitch: this is why ur my favorite shirogane 

bi boh bitch: sorry babe sorry shiro adam is the best now

 

Adam s.: :) 

 

Takashi Shirogane: I’ve been replaced. 

Takashi Shirogane: My heart will never be whole again. 

Takashi Shirogane: I will live as a lonely and broken man for the rest of my days, mourning my former position as the favorite with only my fifteen cats to comfort me. 

 

Adam s.: stop being so dramatic, Takashi, you know i love you 

 

Takashi Shirogane: I love you too, Adam. 

 

Adam s.: ❤️ 

 

Takashi Shirogane: ❤️

 

space ace: disgusting 

 

Vrepit Sal: but hold on, Keith isnt a Shirogane 

 

Desert cryptid: Not legally anyway 

 

Takashi Shirogane: Yet. 

 

Desert cryptid: ??? 

 

Adam s.: according to current U.S. law no individual is inherently too old to go through the legal adult adoption process.  

Adam s.: just because you're not a minor doesn't mean we can't and don't want to legally add you to the family, Keith 

  

Desert cryptid: I didnt think you guys were actually being serious 

 

Takashi Shirogane: Of course we are! We love you, Keith, and we always intended to adopt you. 

  

Desert cryptid: Alright alright enough 

Desert cryptid: I get it 

 

bi boh bitch: this is very heartwarming and im totally digging the bonding here but I think were forgetting that if keiths taking anyones last name its gonna be mine 

 

Desert cryptid: …

Desert cryptid: What 

 

Vrepit Sal: oh boy 

  

bi boh bitch: ;) 

 

 

 Direct messaging between Desert cryptid and Takashi Shirogane (09:58 AM) 

 

 

Desert cryptid: Shiro 

Desert cryptid: He didnt actually mean it right 

 

Takashi Shirogane: In all honesty Keith, I don’t know. 

Takashi Shirogane: Would it bother you if he did? 

 

Desert cryptid: I dont know 

Desert cryptid: Ive thought about it before but there was never time to sit down and talk about it 

 

Takashi Shirogane: You two have been together for a long time, Keith. 

Takashi Shirogane: Do you love him? 

 

Desert cryptid: You know I do 

Desert cryptid: I just 

Desert cryptid: Ten years ago if anyone would have told me Id end up going into space to unravel 10000 years of an alien races intergalactic oppression as a pilot of a robotic lion that came together with four others to form a giant superweapon called Voltron I would have punched them for making fun of me 

Desert cryptid: But then all those things actually happened and I found out more about myself than I ever expected to 

Desert cryptid: I fought alongside my brother and a bunch of total strangers as paladins of Votron and liberated galaxies from all across the cosmos 

Desert cryptid: I found out Im part alien on my moms side and joined a bunch of alien rebels who taught me how to be a better fighter 

Desert cryptid: And that cute cadet named Taylor who I crushed on when I was 13 somehow found me in the desert that night and told me his name is Lance and declared we were rivals 

Desert cryptid: Now hes my boyfriend of 4+ years and suddenly hes making jokes about wanting to marry me 

Desert cryptid: I dont know what to do Shiro I cant tell if hes being serious or not 

Desert crytid: I never expected to make it to 18 let alone end up doing all that and finding someone who actually loves me and treats me like Im the only thing that matters to him 

Desert cryptid: I never expected to be happy Shiro and now that I am Im afraid Im going to fuck it all up and make Lance hate me. We already have so much going on I dont know if I can handle this too

 

Takashi Shirogane: Lance will never hate you, Keith, you know that. You're under a lot of stress right now and it's hard to adjust to the environment after your time as a paladin.

Takashi Shirogane: Do you need to go for a ride to clear your head? We can talk afterwards if it'll help you.

 

Desert cryptid: Yes 

 

Takashi Shirogane: I’ll let Adam know. 

  

 

**** 

 

 

Allura: My apologies for not seeing my addition to this chat sooner, Paladins. I’m afraid it’s still rather difficult adapting to your primitive communication technology. (10:09 AM)

 

Vrepit Sal: don’t sweat it Allura! you're use to super freaky alien tech, i can see why cell phones are a little underwhelming.  

  

bi boh bitch: just wait until I teach u abt emoticons and emojis!!

 

space ace: dont you fucking dare 

 

Allura: Emoticons and emojis? 

 

bi boh bitch: yea!! emoticons are these little faces u make to convey a bunch of different emotions 

bi boh bitch: like this ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) 

 

space ace: lance i will eat your fucking kneecaps 

 

bi boh bitch: and emojis are symbols of different things 

bi boh bitch: like this 🍆💦🌈😂😭💙😘

 

Allura: This is so fascinating!  

Allura: What do all the ones you just used mean? 

 

Vrepit Sal: those are Lance's favorite emojis that he uses all the time. we can explain those later. the face is kind of a snarky, half-smiling, knowing side glance used when the person is doing something sneaky or inappropriate 

 

Allura: So it’s Lance! 

 

space ace: jjhkbybi 

 

bi boh bitch: hey!! 

bi boh bitch: I feel so betrayed  

bi boh bitch: 。゜(`Д´)゜。 

 

Allura: What is that one?

Chapter Text

Coran Hieronymus Wimbleton Smythe: And That Is The Story Of How I Successfully Assassinated The Ruler Of Geon 149 Using Only Mustache Wax And A Bottle Of Nunvil! (12:32 PM) 

 

bi boh bitch: coran holy shit 

bi boh bitch: ur a legend 

 

space ace: just when i thought my impression of you couldnt get any weirder 

 

Allura: Coran, why have you not told me this story before? 

 

Coran Hieronymus Wimbleton Smythe: Well You See Allura Your Father Made Me Promise I Would Keep All Of My Extracurricular Activities A Secret Until You Were Old Enough  

Coran Hieronymus Wimbleton Smythe: And Now That The Universe Is No Longer In Danger I See No Problem With Sharing! 

 

Allura: I…suppose that’s fair? 

 

Vrepit Sal: uh, hey, not to interrupt but do you guys smell something burning? 

 

bi boh bitch: no??? 

 

space ace: i do. i can smell it from my room 

 

Desert cryptid: Oh thats us 

 

Adam s.: TAKASHI WHAT DID YOU DO?! 

 

Takashi Shirogane: My best. 

 

Desert cryptid: He put the takeout container in the microwave 

 

Adam s.: …he forgot about the metal handle? 

 

Desert cryptid: He forgot about the metal handle 

 

space ace: shiro you didnt 

 

Takashi Shirogane: I did.  

 

Adam s.: please tell me you put the fire out… 

 

Takashi Shirogane: The fire is out, but we need a new microwave. 

 

Adam s.: oh, Takashi… please don’t touch anything else until i get there. 

 

Takashi Shirogane: You got it, babe. 

 

bi boh bitch: I somehow find comfort in knowing that he is not in fact good at everything 

 

Desert cryptid: Lance you already knew that 

 

bi boh bitch: well yea but 

bi boh bitch: its nice to be reassured every once in a while 

 

Desert cryptid: Oh I could tell you all kinds of stories 

Desert cryptid: Its even better being behind the scenes. Everyone sees him as this untouchable hero but I know that hes really a walking disaster 

Desert cryptid: Hey Shiro wanna tell them about the anniversary incident 

 

Takashi Shirogane: I’d rather not. 

 

Desert cryptid: Thats okay I will 

Desert cryptid: Shiro was determined to cook Adam a meal “fit for a king” despite how shitty he is at cooking. While Adam was at work Shiro had everything set up with candles and fancy silverware and everything. His first mistake was turning on the wrong burner where the oven mitt sat and leaving the room to check his phone. When he came back a huge flame had rose clear up to the ceiling and in his panic he grabbed the flaming mitt with his bare hand. By the time it was all said and done the dorms sprinkler system put out the fire and soaked everything in the kitchen. When Adam came home all Shiro could say for himself was “welcome home, honey” while Adam nearly had a heart attack. Their anniversary was spent in the hospital where Shiro was treated for burns and Adam begged him to never touch anything in the kitchen ever again. We ended up getting take out

 

Vrepit Sal: Shiro, i don’t mean to judge, but, leaving an oven mitt near the burner? 

 

Takashi Shirogane: Not my proudest moment. 

 

Desert cryptid: Ooo what about the time he ate a block of uncooked ramen because he was too tired to remember how to boil water 

 

bi boh bitch: u WHAT 

 

Takashi Shirogane: I was very tired. 

 

Desert cryptid: How about just recently when you were drunk and tried to microwave your cereal 

 

Takashi Shirogane: As you said, I was drunk. We all were. I’m not sure how you remembered that. 

 

Desert cryptid: Takashi Shirogaymer. 

 

Takashi ShiroganeKeith don’t you fucking dare. 

 

space ace: holy shit keith you made shiro say A Swear 

 

bi boh bitch: wait

bi boh bitch: why didnt u bring this up before!!! 

 

Takashi Shirogane: Because my gaming channel is a time in my life I would love to forget. 

 

 

Takashi Shirogane’name was changed to Takashi shirogaymer (12:38 PM)

 

 

Takashi shirogaymer: Keith. 

 

Desert cryptid: What 

 

Takashi shirogaymer: Change it back. 

 

Desert cryptid: I have no idea what youre talking about 

 

Takashi shirogaymer: :( 

 

 

Direct messaging between Desert cryptid and Takashi Shirogane (12:39 PM)

 

 

Desert cryptid: Hey

Desert cryptid: If it actually does bother you I can stop 

 

Takashi Shirogane: It doesn’t actually bother me, Keith. If it did, I would use the safe words. 

 

Desert cryptid: I know but 

Desert cryptid: I just dont want to make you uncomfortable 

 

Takashi Shirogane: You’re doing fine, Keith, don’t worry. 

 

Desert cryptid: Ok 

 

 

**** 

 

 

bi boh bitch: what no way!! 

bi boh bitch: I loved ur videos!! 

 

Takashi shirogaymer: You did? 

 

bi boh bitch: yea!! 

bi boh bitch: I watched them all the time!! ur channel was one of my favorites!! 

 

Takashi shirogaymer: Um, wow. Thank you, Lance, I’m really flattered.  

 

Adam s.: while that’s all very heartwarming, i’m disappointed to find that Keith failed to bring up the McDonald’s story 

 

Takashi shirogaymer: Uh oh. 

 

Desert cryptid: Oh yeah the mcdonalds story 

 

bi boh bitch: whats the mdconalds story??? 

 

space ace: hopefully more tea on shiro and his disaster gay tendencies 

 

Adam s.: that’s exactly what it is :) 

 

Takashi shirogaymer: Adam. :( 

 

Adam s.: so one night Takashi and i went to McDonald’s to study for an upcoming test. this was at a point where we were good enough friends but we weren’t as close as either of us wanted to be. in the romantic sense, that is. we were friends and roommates, but nothing more 

 

bi boh bitch: and they were roommates 

 

space ace: oh my god they were roommates 

 

bi boh bitch: can I get a rip vine 

 

space ace: rip vine 

 

Desert cryptid: Rip vine 

 

Vrepit Sal: rip Vine

 

Takashi shirogaymer: Rip Vine. 

 

Adam s.: rip Vine 

Adam s.: anyways, i asked him to come study with me at McDonald’s. we grabbed some milkshakes and got to work. honestly i have no idea how, but one thing lead to another and Takashi ended up spilling his milkshake all over his pants. the milkshake was all but empty thankfully but it was still enough to cause a mess. i, like any good friend, followed Takashi into the bathroom to see what could be done. i handed him paper towels before kneeling to the floor to help and he just...stopped and stared at me. there we were in that McDonald’s bathroom, me on my knees, face-to-face with Takashi’s hands that were just hovering over his crotch and he just blurts “will you go out with me?!” 

Adam s.: and of course i said yes 

 

bi boh bitch: oh my GOD?????? 

 

space ace: no god damn way 

space ace: no fucking way adam you have got to be shitting me 

 

Adam s.: nope 

 

bi boh bitch: oh my G OD 

bi boh bitch: SHIRO DID U RLLY ASK HIM OUT IN THE MCDONALDS BATHROOM????

 

Takashi shirogaymer: ...yes. 

 

bi boh bitch: I'M LOSIN G MY FUCKIGN MIND I CANT BELIEVE U DID THAT

 

Takashi shirogaymer: I can't believe he said yes.

 

Desert cryptid: I wasnt kidding when I said hes a walking disaster 

 

Takashi shirogaymer: Says the one who was too nervous to give Lance the rose for Valentine’s Day when you were cadets and just ate it instead. 

 

space ace: oh my god  

 

bi boh bitch: he ate a rose??? 

 

Desert cryptid: Shiro no. 

 

Takashi shirogaymer: Keith was going to ask you out by giving you a rose but he got so nervous that instead of giving it to you, he ate it and ran away. 

 

bi boh bitch: pfffff 

bi boh bitch: babe thats adorable!!! 

 

Desert cryptid: No its embarrassing 

 

Vrepit Sal: hey man, that’s nothing compared to that time back on the castle where you wore a tank top and the minute Lance saw you, he walked right into a wall and gave himself a nosebleed 

 

bi boh bitch: HUNK 

 

space ace: what about the time keith tied his hair up to train and lance was so distracted that the training bot knocked him on his ass 

 

bi boh bitch: oh yea?? Well pidge why dont u tell hunk about how u accidentally set his vest on fire and tossed it out of the airlock!!! 

 

Vrepit Sal: that was you?! 

 

space ace: hey hunk remember the time you thought you broke one of the pieces to my already broken cosmic transmogrifyer and were so scared of my wrath that you hid in your room for a week? 

 

Vrepit Sal: understandable have a nice day 

 

Takashi shirogaymer: While I’m glad we’re all bonding, allow with me to share with you the most steaming hot tea you’ll have the fortune of sipping.

Adam s.: too late, i know everyone else saved them too 

 

bi boh bitchgasp we would never!! 

bi boh bitch: ok we would but thats not the point 

bi boh bitch: the point is adam had an emo phase and my crops will be watered for years 

 

Adam s.: i’m glad you find my cringy past so amusing, Lance 

 

Takashi shirogaymer: I know I certainly do. 

 

Adam s.: the betrayal 

 

Takashi shirogaymer: Payback. 

 

Adam s.: guess who isn’t getting cuddled tonight 

 

Takashi shirogaymer: Aw come on, babe, don’t be like that. 

 

Adam s.: nope, my mind is made up. tonight you’ll be rooming with the cats. 

 

Takashi shirogaymer: Adam. :’( 

 

Adam s.: no. puppy eyes don’t work on me, Takashi. 

 

Takashi shirogaymer: But, Adam. Tonight is Desperate Housewives night. 

 

Adam s.: oh for the love of- fine, i make the begrudging exception for that. but if it were any other night you’d be on the couch.  

 

Takashi shirogaymer: ❤️

 

Adam s.: ugh. ❤️

 

space ace: are you two done yet 

space ace: watching you two be disgustingly domestic makes me feel emotions 

 

bi boh bitch: hey it could be worse 

bi boh bitch: at least me and keith arent like that 

 

space ace: you two are just as gross if not grosser 

 

bi boh bitch: wh- we are absolutely nothing like shadam and we are definitely not worse 

 

space ace: lance you tie his hair up for him when he cant be bothered  

 

bi boh bitch: thats what good bfs do!!! 

 

space ace: last week you drove three towns away to get keith donuts from the fancy bakery he likes only to do it again two hours later to pick up korean bbq 

space ace: sometimes when hes upset you sing him a spanish lullaby and refuse to let anyone speak to him until youre sure hes ready 

space ace: when he sends you selfies you start crying and whining about how much you dont deserve him 

space ace: youre whipped with a capital W and thinking about it youre somehow worse than adam and shiro 

 

bi boh bitch: this is slander 

 

Vrepit Sal: it’s not slander if it’s true 

 

bi boh bitch: hunk I thought you loved me 

bi boh bitch: we were going to marry and retire early to the countryside and have the cutest samoan/cuban babies 

 

Vrepit Sal: i’m sorry Lance, but you know as well as i do that hiding behind the truth isn’t going to solve anything. if this relationship is to continue then you need to promise me to be honest with yourself 

 

bi boh bitchsniff alright 

bi boh bitch: for u l wont deny the truth 

 

Vrepit Sal: good. now, repeat after me: i am smitten and soft for my boyfriend

Direct messaging between Takashi Shirogane and Desert cryptid (13:49 PM)

 


Takashi Shirogane: How are you feeling now?

 

Desert cryptid: Better. Lance hasnt brought it up again and hes being incredibly sweet

Desert cryptid: He knows I was upset earlier but I didnt tell him why

 

Takashi Shirogane: Why didn’t you?

 

Desert cryptid: I wasnt ready to…

 

Takashi Shirogane: That’s perfectly alright, Keith. You don’t need to force yourself to tell him if you’re not ready.

 

Desert cryptid: He didnt force the issue or anything. He just knows I was upset over something Im not comfortable sharing and he hasnt left my side since he came to the room.

Desert cryptid: Hes so good to me Shiro and I dont understand why

 

Takashi Shirogane: Because you are deserving of love and respect just like anyone else, Keith. Please don’t forget that.

 

Desert cryptid: Its hard sometimes. There are times when I forget that Im actually important and a valued part of others lives and then you guys are right there to pick me back up

 

Takashi Shirogane: That’s what family is for. We care about you deeply and will always remind you just how much you matter.

 

Desert cryptid: I know. Its just hard getting use to something I was only just starting to learn before you left for Kerberos.

 

Takashi Shirogane: I know, Keith, but I promise now that you’ll always have us. We will always be here for you. We may be busy and spending time with one another is getting to be difficult, but we're still your family and we'll always be here at the end of the day when it's time to come home.

 

Desert cryptid: Thanks Shiro…

Desert cryptid: Can you bring me some snacks? I’ll be staying with Lance in the room for a little while

 

Takashi Shirogane: Of course. Anything in particular you want?

 

Desert cryptid: A big ass bag of doritos and some life water

 

Takashi Shirogane: One big ass bag of Doritos and some Life Water, got it. Does Lance want anything?

 

Desert cryptid: He said a bag of those really hot cheetos you found the other day. “You know the ones"

 

Takashi Shirogane: Extra hot, got it. Does he want something to drink too?

 

Desert cryptid: He shook his head no. I think hes going to mooch off me

 

Takashi Shirogane: Okay, I’ll be there soon.

 

Desert cryptid: I can wait until you guys go to the store you know

 

Takashi Shirogane: Nah, I stocked up yesterday because I had a feeling.

 

Desert cryptid: Ok

Desert cryptid: Doors unlocked

 

Takashi Shirogane: Got it. Love you, little bro.

 

Desert cryptid: Love you too

 

 

****

 

 

bi boh bitch: hey keiths not feeling so nice so were going to have to ditch the store trip (13:52 PM)

 

Vrepit Sal: is he okay?

 

bi boh bitch: yea

bi boh bitch: hes just having a rough day so im going to stay here to give him love and validation

 

space ace: does he need us to stay behind too?

 

bi boh bitch: he said no hes fine with just me

bi boh bitch: he also told me to remind adam to pick up a new microwave

 

Adam s.: why do you think we’re going to the store?

 

bi boh bitch: “because you didnt ban shiro from the kitchen for long enough”

 

Adam s.: it’s not my fault Takashi is a horrible cook

 

bi boh bitch: “you enable him”

 

Adam s.: kicking him out of the kitchen then being unable to resist his charm isn't enabling him, it’s being weak for my husband

 

bi boh bitch: “tell adam hes fucking gay”

 

Adam s.: aren’t we all?

 

bi boh bitch: mood

space ace: a true miracle

 

Direct messaging between Takashi Shirogane and bi boh bitch (14:11 PM)

 


Takashi Shirogane: He’s asleep?

 

bi boh bitch: yea

bi boh bitch: he passed out pretty quickly after you left

bi boh bitch: I was going to ask him if he wanted me to make lunch so he could eat smth other than doritos but I dont have the heart to wake him up especially knowing how busy hes going to be here soon

bi boh bitch: riding always takes a lot out of him huh

 

Takashi Shirogane: It always did. We’ll be back in a little while, so if you need anything call us.

 

bi boh bitch: will do. thanks shiro

 

 

****

 

 

Keith stirs and shifts, the subtle movement causing Nessie to raise her head and look at him. Her meow draws Lance’s attention back to them and he turns in time to see Keith’s eyes fluttering open, his mouth parting to speak softly, “Lance?”

 

“Right here, babe.” Lance pulls his legs back onto the bed and lies on his side again, facing Keith with a soft smile. “You fell asleep on me.”

 

“Sorry,” Keith murmurs, draping his arm across the clowder of cats curled up together against his chest. If the droopy eyes, labored breathing and sluggish movements weren’t enough of a testament to his exhaustion, the barely there words certainly are.

 

“You needed it, don’t be sorry.” Lance brushes a lock of hair from Keith’s eyes with a fond smile, trailing his fingers down to trace the sharp curve of Keith’s jaw. Keith hums appreciatively in response. “Do you want to get up to eat, mi amor?” He mumbles something unintelligible in response, his eyes closing. Chuckling, Lance rests his arms over the cats and Keith, his fingers finding the smooth strip of exposed skin between the hem of Keith’s hoodie and his pants. There’s no response. Lance slips his fingers beneath Keith’s hoodie and caresses the skin of his lower back, before resting his hand there. Keith is sound asleep beside him, with three cats curled up against his chest and each other. Calmed by the gentle noise of Keith’s labored breathing, Lance recalls the feeling of being deeply in love, and the thought puts a smile on his face before he drifts off to sleep.

Incoming call from ❤️babe❤️ (15:57 PM)

 


“Babe?”

 

Hey. We’re taking a break and I wanted to see what you're doing.”

 

“Oh! I’m out with Allura and Romelle right now. I took them shopping for their date tonight!”

 

"They're going on a date tonight?"

 

“Yeah! Allura finally asked Romelle out and I wanted to make sure they have something nice to wear.”

 

"Well congratulations to them, I hope it goes well."

 

“Thank you, Keith! How are things going?”

 

"Anytime, Allura. Things are going pretty well; there's talk of turning the Blade of Marmora into a humanitarian relief team to help everyone that's still recovering from the attacks."

 

“Oh Keith, that’s wonderful! That would be an immense help to all those affected as well as those that have immigrated here!"

 

"Nothing's concrete yet, but that's the most probable course of action as of now."

 

“Hello, Keith!”

 

"Hey, Romelle. Good luck on the date tonight."

 

“Thank you! Lance has shown us so many interesting things about Earth fashion and the outfits he picked for us are quite lovely!"

 

"To his credit, Lance is pretty knowledgeable on that sort of thing."

 

“You think so babe?”

 

"Well yeah. You always look nice and I know you'll make sure Allura and Romelle have something awesome to wear tonight."

 

“Baaaabe.”

 

"What? All I said was you always look nice."

 

“Yes and Allura is laughing at how red I am.”

 

"Good."

 

“Hey! You’re supposed to be on my side!”

 

"That's news to me."

 

“Pfft, whatever. Hey, wanna see the outfits I picked out for them?”

 

"Sure."

(The first message is a photo of Allura in a solid color skirt and sweater with heels. The second is a photo of Romelle in a flower print dress with flats. Both girls are alone in their photos but are smiling at someone off camera)

 


"They both look great."

 

“Don’t they? They can’t stop smiling at each other and it’s so cute.”

 

"You've been trying to set them up since Romelle joined the team. Think tonight they'll finally get together?"

 

“Oh totally. My fashion advice and their obvious attraction to each other? If they don’t get together then I’ve failed as a love guru.”

 

"Since when are you a love guru?"

 

“Since forever, obviously!”

 

"Keep telling yourself that, Lance."

 


One (1) incoming message from Lance 💙: (16:01 PM)

(Photo of Lance between Allura and Romelle. All three are smiling and dressed in nice clothing, Lance wearing a button up and tie with his hair slicked back)

 

 

"..."


“Babe?”

 

"Your hair."

 

“Do you like it?

 

"..."

 

“Keith?”

 

Lance, this is Krolia. I’m not entirely sure why but Keith has excused himself for a moment. He’s outside covering his face.”

 

“O-oh? Is he okay?”

 

"His face is very red."

 

“Oh… He’s okay, he’s just blushing.”

 

"..."

 

“Hello?”

 

"What did she say to you?"

 

“Nothing! She just said you had to go outside because you were blushing.”

 

"Mom! You didn't have to tell him that!"

 

“Holy shit you were blushing!”

 

"Only because you sent that picture!"

 

“Is it because my hair is slicked back?”

 

"...you look amazing, Lance."

 

“It is! Holy shit you like when I slick my hair back!”

 

"It's not a big deal!"

 

“It’s a huge deal! Holy crow I can’t believe I didn’t know this before!”

 

"Lance I will hang up!"

 

“Wait babe no! I’ll stop, I’ll stop!”

 

"Oh no, please continue. It's incredibly entertaining watching Keith in this flustered state."

 

“Oh my god.”

 

"Mom! I'll be back in a few minutes, don't start again without me."

 

 

"Hey, sorry."

 

“Don’t be sorry babe! Do you have to go soon?”

 

"In a few minutes, yeah, but I can talk until then."

 

“You sure? I don’t want to hold you up, I know you’re busy.”

 

"It's okay, babe."

 

“Okay… I miss you.”

 

"I miss you too. I'll be home later tomorrow morning, we're staying on Naxzela for the night."

 

“You didn’t tell me you were going to Naxzela!”

 

"I didn't? Sorry..."

 

“It’s fine babe. Tomorrow morning?”

 

"Yeah. And when I get back I want to take you out."

 

“Like on a date?”

 

"If you want. I was thinking we could go to breakfast."

 

“I’d love to, babe.”

 

"Can we go in pajamas?"

 

"Do you really need to ask? Of course we can."

 

"Good. The thought of being in pajamas is actually pretty comforting right now. They gave me a Blade leader uniform to wear for the meeting and it's pretty weird."

 

“Pics or it didn’t happen.”

 

"Lance."

 

“Aw come on babe! Don’t deny me of such a beautiful sight.”

 

"What makes you think it's beautiful?"

 

“Because literally everything about you is beautiful and it’s really unfair.”

 

"Don't do this."

 

“Send the picture or I send another selfie.”

 

"You're the worst."

 

“You love me.”

Chapter Text

“Everything okay, babe?”

 

"We all agreed that the next best course of action is to turn the Blade of Marmora into a humanitarian relief team and Kolivan asked me to lead the efforts."

 

“Holy shit!”

 

"Yeah..."

 

"You okay?"

 

"That wasn't all they asked."

 

"What else do they want you to do?"

 

"..."

 

"Babe?"

 

"Kolivan asked me to be the new Galra emporer."

 

"Oh. Oh."

 

"Yeah..."

 

“Let me guess, you turned them down.”

 

"A humanitarian relief effort is the perfect use of the Blade's time now that the universe is safe, but I can't be the leader of anything."

 

“But you’re a great leader, Keith.”

 

"..."

 

“Babe?”

 

"It's great that they're doing this, but being a leader isn't for me. I agreed to help during the transition period, but my future isn't with the Blades or even with the Galra empire. It's here on Earth... With you. 

 

“Babe-”

 

"I have to go, but I'll call you as soon as we're getting ready to leave."

 

“Okay… I’ll talk to you soon.”

 

"Talk to you soon. Oh, and Lance?"

 

“Yeah?”

 

"You look amazing in that suit."

“So all you have to do is wait on a date for your hearing?”

 

Shiro nods and swallows his sip of water, “all the paperwork has been turned in. We’re hoping the date doesn’t conflict with the Blade’s transitioning period, but in the event that it does Kolivan already agreed that we could work something out.”

 

“How’d you even get Kolivan to make that exception?” Lance asks, tilting his head quizzically. "Last time I checked he’s a pretty strict guy.”

 

“He only agreed because Keith declined the offer to lead,” Adam responds with a small shrug, leaning back in his chair. “With Keith’s plans to help kick things off before coming home, I think he knows there really isn’t any point in trying to stick to any sort of schedule.”

 

Matt chews the rest of his food before chiming in, “so what happens at the hearing? Is that when you’ll know if your request has been approved?”

 

“If all goes well, we’ll have the judge’s decision to let us adopt him before we leave the courthouse.” Shiro pauses to smile fondly at Adam, who returns it graciously. “After that it’s sending more paperwork in to different places and waiting for the adoption to be legally recognized.”

 

“So how long until Keith is officially a Shirogane?” Pidge leans down to feed Kosmo a chicken breast, which he accepts happily.

 

“Anywhere from a month to three, though with how quickly we submitted the paperwork it might end up being the former.”

 

“Keith Shirogane… Oh my god does that mean when he and I get married I’m going to be a Shirogane?” Lance’s eyes are alight with something akin to excitement, and Shiro chuckles.

 

“I don’t think Keith plans to change his last name. You’ll have to take that up with him when you ask.”

 

Kosmo lifts his head as he hears a series of knocks at the door. Following his line of sight, Colleen stands up, “that’s probably Hunk with dessert!”

 

She exits the room to let Hunk in, and Pidge flicks the last of her peas at Matt and Kel, an indirect demand that they stop being sappy at the dinner table. “Go be gross somewhere else.” Matt sticks his tongue out, a gesture that earns him the “child” label from Pidge, before turning and planting a kiss on his boyfriend’s lips. Pidge groans in annoyance, “Daaaad, they’re being gross.”

 

Sam is too busy laughing to listen to his child’s plea for help. When Colleen reappears, she’s trailed by a smiling Hunk, who everyone greets with a series of delighted hello’s. Lance jumps up immediately and all but tackles his best friend, who somehow manages to keep his balance and hold on the platter in his hand. He wraps the man in a one armed embrace, grinning, “there’s the greatest best friend in the whole universe. I made extra just for you.”

 

“I knew you loved me,” Lance chides, burying his face in Hunk’s chest for a few seconds before looking up at him, his arms still around Hunk’s waist. “What did you bring us?”

 

Colleen begins clearing the table and quickly stops Shiro and Adam from attempting to help, fending them all off with a wave of her hand. Hunk pats Lance’s back, a gesture Lance understands as Hunk’s quiet wish to be let go, and he sets the platter down in the table looking incredibly proud. “Look and find out.”

 

Pidge is the first to unearth the sugary deliciousness beneath the lid, their eyes widening as they look at Hunk with the biggest smile, “cake!”

 

Sure enough, resting on the platter is ten miniature cakes decorated with buttercream icing, big enough to top off a delicious meal but small enough to not overwhelm the stomach. Hunk reaches into his pocket and pulls out a container of dog treats, kneeling down as he pops the lid, “I made these for you, Kosmo.”

 

Plates are handed out while Kosmo sniffs the offered treat before accepting with a noise of approval. Hunk takes the seat beside Lance, who immediately moves his chair closer and leans against Hunk, looking up at him with sparkling blue eyes, “has anyone ever told you that you’re the greatest best friend in the entire universe?”

 

Hunk slings his arm around Lance’s shoulders, “I can say the same for you, buddy. Dig in everyone! This is a brand new recipe and I need your opinions.”

 

Praises are sung into the shared space at the dinner table, everyone commending Hunk for his talent around mouthfuls of cake. Hunk’s beaming with a slight flush to his cheeks, humbly accepting the compliments between his own bites of cake. Kosmo rests his head on Lance’s lap, not begging for anything but some attention that Lance happily delivers. “You miss Keith, huh?” A whine. “Yeah… Me too, Kosmo.”

 

“He’ll be back tomorrow morning,” Shiro assures him from across the table with a sympathetic smile. “Remember though, he’s going to be pretty busy for the next few weeks.”

 

“I know, and it sucks,” Lance deadpans, his hand falling to Kosmo’s waiting head. “I know it’s not going to be one of those things where he only comes back sporadically with the Blades, but I miss him like crazy. I… Miss all of you guys like crazy.” Everyone exchanges confused glances – it’s not like they’re gone, they’re just busy. Lance continues, “I mean, I’m glad that everyone has something going on, but as Paladins we spent a lot of time around each other. Now that we’re home, everyone has something going on and it feels like we hardly ever have time to do things like this.”

 

Hunk frowns, turning his head to look at Lance, “hey man, it’s not like you’ll never see us again.”

 

“I know, but…” Lance trails off, and Kosmo whines, nuzzling Lance’s hand. Lance pets him, “I just don’t want us to drift apart now that we have the chance to do our own thing.”

 

“We won’t let that happen,” Adam decides, watching Lance’s reaction from across the table. “Just because everyone has something doesn’t mean it’s what’s going to split everyone apart. As far as I know, Allura, Coran, and Romelle are the only ones who have plans to leave Earth with the other Alteans, and even then they promised that they’d stay in touch while rebuilding Altea. We won’t fall apart, Lance.”

 

“Adam’s right,” Shiro agrees. “We’ve been through too much together to let that happen.”

 

Lance sighs, “I just wish there was a way we could all just live together, that way no matter where our paths take us we can still come home to each other.”

 

Silence follows for a few moments before Pidge gets an idea, adjusting their glasses, “what if… There was a way?”

 

“Are you suggesting what I think you’re suggesting?” Sam inquires, stroking his chin.

 

“Why not?” Pidge asks rhetorically, “it’s a great way to keep us all together, and with the sheer amount of manpower and technology we have I know we can do it no problem.”

 

Everyone nods, save for Lance, “hold on, what are you talking about?”

 

“They’re suggesting that we build a house to live in together,” Shiro clarifies, a proud grin on his face. “And I think it’s a great idea.”

 

“Build a house together? That’s perfect! We can build a big house with enough space for all of us!” Lance excitedly straightens up in his chair, “that way we can stay together no matter what!”

 

“Building a house requires a lot of time, a lot of planning, and a lot of manpower…” Adam asserts, leaning forward to prop his elbow on the table, cupping his chin between his fingers. “With everyone being so busy, how can we be sure that we’ll even find time to do this?”

 

“We can make time!” Lance claims, “besides, I’ve seen projects like this last ten years and everything still worked out. I know we can do this if we just try.”

 

They all take time to think it over before coming to a mutual consensus that they need Keith to be here before making the final decision. “We can talk about it when he’ll be here for more than a day.” Shiro drinks more of his water. “Once we have Keith’s answer, we can move on from there.”

 

They finish dinner with jokes and laughter, silently reveling in the familial solidarity. When they leave the Holts, the members of Team Voltron are smiling with the promise of great things. Each of them retires to their rooms for the night, Pidge eventually evading Lance and Hunk’s space for a sleepover. When Lance finally goes down for the night with Kosmo curled up against him, he dreams of a future with Keith.

Takashi Shirogaymer: Then I’ll patiently remind them that we saved the universe and a little bit of fun is needed every now and then to brighten their spirits.

Incoming call from ❤️ babe ❤️ (17:37 PM) 

 

 

“Keith you better have an explanation for why you’re only now calling me!” 

 

“I know how this looks, and I’m sorry. But I need you to trust me. Get dressed, I’m picking you up in ten minutes.” 

 

“Oh no, nononono, no way, tell me what the hell is going on!” 

 

“Lance-” 

 

“No! You tell me you’ll be home in the morning only to not show up and ignore everyone’s texts and calls, then call me hours after you were supposed to be home and offer a half-assed apology before telling me to get dressed so I can come with you! That’s not how this works Keith, you can’t just do what you want and expect me to be fine with it!” 

 

“…” 

 

“Until you can give me a real explanation and a real apology, I’m not going anywhere with you!” 

 

“…” 

 

“I’ll talk to you when you get back. See you soon.” 

 

“Lance, wait!” 

 

“I’ve been waiting all day! You had me worried sick, Keith!” 

 

“Lance, I know you’re mad, and you have every right to be. I should have called you, and I’m sorry I made you worry , but I’ll explain as soon as I see you. If you still don’t want to go, that’s fine. I’ll be there soon.” 

 

“Okay…” 

 

“I love you.” 

 

“…I love you too.” 

 

 

 

*** 

 

 

 

“So, where are you taking him again?” 

 

“Varadero Beach, where he grew up. I figured after everything that happened, a trip home might be good for him.” 

 

“As much as he’ll appreciate it, you know that he’s still mad at you for not calling.” 

 

“I know, Shiro. Thanks for covering for me.” 

 

“I don’t think I can do it again, Keith. Seeing him so heartbroken was painful.” 

 

“I’m going to make it up to him, I just need him to accept my apology first.” 

 

You better hurry. He’s moping on the couch with Kosmo .” 

 

“I’m right outside.” 

 

“See you soon, Keith. Good luck.” 

 

“Thanks, Shiro.” 

 

 

 

*** 

 

 

 

“Explain, now.” 

 

Keith feels like he’s about to be lectured for something stupid he did- then again, that might be exactly what’s happening. Lance’s arms are crossed over his chest, his foot tapping rhythmically against the hardwood floor and his blue eyes narrow, waiting. “I know how this looks, Lance,” he starts, taking a nervous step forward. “I should have called you, but I was busy making arrangements.” 

 

“Arrangements? Arrangements to do what? Spend the entire day ghosting me?!” 

 

Okay, he’s definitely angry. Salvage this, Keith. “Arrangements for a trip. I want to take you somewhere I know you’ll love, you just have to trust me.” 

 

Lance grimaces, “why should I go anywhere with you, Keith?” 

 

“Because…” he trails off, his internal debate heating up. Tell him the truth, or convince him the surprise is worth it? Lance’s foot tapping grows louder in Keith’s ears, forcing him to make a split second decision. “Lance, I know not calling you was wrong. You were worried, and believe me when I say I know I’m an asshole for what I did. I promise you that I’ll be more considerate from now on, and if you don’t want to go that’s fine with me.” 

 

Now it’s Lance’s turn to debate. He trusts Keith with his life, no matter how much he pisses him off, but he was also incredibly worried. “Every time you didn’t communicate, something ended up being wrong. You’re here now, and you’re safe, but for all I know you could have been in serious danger, Keith.” 

 

The taller man’s eyes fall, “I know, Lance… I’m sorry.” 

 

“But-” Lance’s voice pulls Keith’s attention back to him, and when Keith looks up he finds that Lance’s expression is much softer, patient, understanding. He smiles, “you’re here now, and you’re okay.” He pauses to take Keith’s hand, “I’ll come with you.” Keith smiles brilliantly in return, bringing Lance’s hand to his lips to kiss his knuckles, causing Lance to blush furiously. “Okay, okay, I get it! Let’s just go already.” A bright red Lance in tow, Keith exits the building and crosses around back, where a gleaming MFE fighter plane sits waiting. “Uh, Keith?” 

 

“This is what we’re taking,” Keith tells him, opening the hatch and holding Lance’s hand to help him step into it.  

 

“Don’t you need the Garrison’s permission?” Lance asks, stepping into the cockpit. “And how is this going to fit two of us?” 

 

“You’ll just have to sit on my lap,” Keith responds, purposely dodging the first question or just blatantly ignoring it. 

 

While Keith climbs in after him, Lance shimmies to make room before perching himself on Keith’s lap without hesitation, grabbing one of the two helmets and inspecting it, “why can’t we just use your hoverbike? Or one of the Lions?"

 

Keith continues to ignore the questions being thrown at him. Lance’s brow furrows while Keith pulls on his own helmet. He opens his mouth to ask another question before Keith cuts him off. “Lance. Shut up and trust me?” Well, Lance can’t really say no when Keith uses that fond tone now can he? He slips the helmet on and makes himself as small as possible on Keith’s lap, compensating for the lack of space in the cockpit while Keith starts it up.  

 

The fighter is fast and Lance is enjoying every trick Keith does, choosing to ignore the nagging thought that James would probably kill them if he knew this is what his fighter is being used for. Night has fallen by the time they finally reach their destination, Lance having no solid clue of how long it’s been since they left. Keith lands the fighter on a brightly illuminated, empty parking lot just a few feet from a vast expanse of beach, and had Lance not been paying attention he would have failed to notice the muted lights of the empty boardwalk.  

 

Lance steps out of the fighter and starts to stretch his cramped limbs, turning to look at where Keith has taken them, “so where-” The question dies in his throat the second he takes in his surroundings. The smell of the sea is carried to him by the breeze, mingling with the lingering scent of fried boardwalk food. Somewhere, a seagull calls out before taking flight. Lance looks around hurriedly, ignoring the ache in his legs as they carry him right to the start of the beach. When he turns, Keith has caught up to him, smiling because he knows.  

 

Tears well up in Lance’s eyes; despite years of separation from the place he once called home, he’d recognize it anywhere. It’s right here, in front of his eyes for the first time since he left following his enrollment into the Galaxy Garrison.  

 

Varadero Beach.  

 

His home. 

 

Keith is right there to confirm, the tender smile never leaving his face, “welcome home, Lance.”

Takashi shirogaymer: …is it?

Vrepit Sal: i feel a quarter life crisis coming on

bi boh bitch: but wait when he left for kerberos wasnt he like 25??

Takashi shirogaymer: 26.

space ace: he was gone for a year before he crashed in the desert then i think we were in space for at least a year or two before he disappeared so that would have made him 28 or 29 before he died

Desert cryptid: Can we stop talking about this please

bi boh bitch: but I think we were gone for a total of 5 years or smth so wouldnt shiro be in his 30s now????

space ace: he died once then we had kuron for about a year before he died and allura brought the real shiro back

Takashi shirogaymer: I don’t think Kuron’s death is counted on Garrison records. On the record I’m 29 and I’m comfortable with that.

the heart of voltron: Oh, my name was changed as well!

sharkboy: ye
sharkboy: ur rlly important to all of us allura
sharkboy: w/o u we would have never been able to save the universe

the heart of voltron: You all were able to save the universe because you were destined for it, and it was an honor fighting along side people as courageous and passionate as you five. I do hope that the fact that the others and I will be departing shortly to rebuild Altea does not change how close we are with one another.

Space Dad: It won’t change a thing, Allura. We will always be a family, no matter where in the universe we end up. Besides, it’s not like you won’t be visiting us from time to time once you’re settled in.

space uncle: I Say We All Should Meet At Least Once A Deca-Phoeb For Some Sort Of Team Outing! It Would Be The Perfect Opportunity To Catch Up Should We Find Ourselves Short Of Free Time!

Space Dad: That’s a great idea, Coran! A yearly team meeting is the perfect opportunity for everyone to catch up in full.

sharkboy: we could do it on the anniversary of the day we came home!!!

lavagirl: May 21st?

sharkboy: yea!!!

chaotic neutral: im down

sunshine personified: i can totally make a meal or something for the occasion

Earth Dad: maybe if we work diligently we can have our first meeting in the new house

Space Dad: Ambitious, but doable.

sunshine personified: but wait, weren’t we waiting for Keith’s answer first?

lavagirl: Lance told me what you all wanted to do when we went to Varadero Beach last night.

chaotic neutral: and?

lavagirl: I have one condition

Space Dad: What is it, Keith?

lavagirl: Mom can stay with us too

Space Dad: Of course, her staying with us was something we planned on from the beginning.

lavagirl: Then Im on board too

sharkboy: WOO HOO!!! THIS IS GONNA BE SO AWESOME!!!

Space Dad: Just remember, Lance, we all have a lot going on and a year is a lot less time than you think. It’s actually less than a year now.

sharkboy: I know I know dont worry

space ace: for as loud and annoying lance is i have to admit that hes at least a good boyfriend

 

traitor #1: They maintain a healthy relationship dynamic through communication and balancing each other out. For as worried as I was at first, I’m glad Keith finally found someone who makes him as happy as he is with Lance.

Vrepit Sal: “but Hunk it’s so late, i don’t wanna take away from your beauty sleep!!”
Vrepit Sal: nonsense, you know i’m always down for some best buddy bonding time!
Vrepit Sal: oh, but wait.
Vrepit Sal: i didn’t get to join the impromptu best best friend sleepover because someone didn’t tell me about it
Vrepit Sal: you have soiled our friendship garden

bi boh bitch: darling hunk

bi boh bitch: the finn to my poe
bi boh bitch: I love u but dont disgrace this friendship by bringing spongebob into this

Vrepit Sal: i wouldn’t have to if you had just invited me to the sleepover, Lance
Vrepit Sal: it’s you that’s disgraced this friendship with your blasphemous ways

Vrepit Sal: and i told you to wake me up anyways. i know how little you sleep, buddy

Vrepit Sal: buddy i’m going to hold that over your head forever

bi boh bitch: just like im gonna hold ur pining for shay over ur head forever!!

Vrepit Sal: i’m not ashamed to admit i pined, unlike you, who pined for years and just denied your feelings so hard that you turned it into a one sided rivalry you didn’t drop until you got hurt and you and Keith bonded, which you refused to acknowledge

bi boh bitch: I would have acknowledged the bonding moment!!!
bi boh bitch: …eventually

Vrepit Sal: no you wouldn’t have, Lance

sunshine personified: if anyone wakes Lance up for anything I’m going to be highly upset. (08:05 AM)

chaotic neutral: so dont wake lance or we face your wrath

sunshine personified: yes.
sunshine personified: if Lance is woken up before he’s ready i will be incredibly disappointed

Space Dad: Hunk, out of everyone here, you’re the person I feel the most guilty upsetting.

Earth Dad: Hunk is the team’s ray of sunshine, no one likes upsetting him

sunshine personified: i like to use that to my advantage
sunshine personified: usually on Lance but i’ve been known to spread it further

lavagirl: Hunk your ability to make me feel incredibly guilty with as little effort on your part as possible is the most terrifying fucking thing ever
lavagirl: I remember once when Lance and I had an argument and werent talking you came to talk to me and before I even understood what was happening you had guilt tripped me so hard that I left mid conversation to go find Lance so we could make up
lavagirl: You didnt even say much you just had this look that made me regret everything and it scared the shit out of me

chaotic neutral: hunk shares that look with his mom
chaotic neutral: watching them use it together is just as terrifying if not more

sharkboy: hunks disappointed mom stare is worse than māsinas u cant convince me otherwise

sunshine personified: Lance! why aren’t you asleep?

sharkboy: forgot to turn my notifs off lol

sunshine personified: you need to sleep!

lavagirl: Lance you really should be asleep

sharkboy: nah I think ill stay up for a bit
sharkboy: wouldnt wanna deprive u beautiful ppl of my presence for to long (☞ ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)☞

sunshine personified: Keith, you know what to do

sharkboy: if u think cuddling my boyf is gonna help ur absolutely right but not this time
shakboy: im gonna prove all u bitches wrong

lavagirl: Leandro.

sharkboy: fuC K
sharkboy: babe dont do this u know I dont stand a chance

lavagirl: Leandro

sharkboy: hnnhhgngnghhh

lavagirl: Dont make me say it again Espinoza

sharkboy: but babe!!!

lavagirl: Im coming to your room, make sure the door is unlocked.
lavagirl: And turn off your notifications

sharkboy: …say it one more time?

lavagirl: Just turn off your notifications Leandro

sharkboy: fghgnjdkjgkkgjfjfjghh

chaotic neutral: ………what……the singular fuck……just happened

sunshine personified: Keith and i have this system we use when we need to get Lance to listen to us for his own good
sunshine: if i get to him first, i cuddle him until he falls asleep
sunshine personified: if my tactics don’t work, Keith pulls the first name card
sunshine personified: and vice versa

chaotic neutral: i. thought lances first name is lance

lavagirl: Well hes Cuban so his actual name is Leandro

chaotic neutral: so where does lance come from

lavagirl: His full name is Leandro Antonio Neron Carreno y Espinoza. Two middle and last names

chaotic neutral: lance is an acronym!

lavagirl: A very coincidental one yeah

chaotic neutral: ive known him for years and somehow this is my first time ever hearing this information
chaotic neutral: does he not like using leandro?

lavagirl: He doesnt dislike his first name he just thought it was cool how his full name is an acronym. Since the Garrison staff called him by his last name when he was enrolled hardly anyone knew about it

chaotic neutral: huh

Vrepit Sal: Rosa, Antonio, and Keith are the only ones i’ve ever seen use his actual name. Rosa and Antonio obviously get a pass because they’re his parents, but sometimes Keith will use it to kinda reign him in if he needs it

chaotic neutral: who else knew about this

Earth Dad: as Garrison staff, Takashi and I knew his first name but I stuck to using his last name to address him. Takashi used the acronym because that’s what Lance asked him to do

chaotic neutral: so…..should i still call him lance or

lavagirl: As far as I know hes still comfortable with Lance yeah
lavagirl: Dont worry about it too much Pidge

chaotic neutral: okay

space ace: its nothing forget i said anything

Desert cryptid: Its clearly something
Desert cryptid: Im not going to force you to tell me but if you want to talk then Im here

space ace: i just
space ace: lance and i talked a lot this morning and one of the things we talked about was how hunk and i treated him
space ace: he says its fine but even knowing that hes forgiven us i still feel incredibly guilty about what happened

Desert cryptid: Oh
Desert cryptid: Uh
Desert cryptid: You mean that thing with Funsen?

space ace: not just that
space ace: i was a real asshole to him through a lot of it
space ace: funsen
space ace: kuron
space ace: i even made fun of him for missing you when you left for the blades
space ace: im learning more about lance every day and it makes me remember how badly i treated him when all he wanted was to be included

Desert cryptid: I see
Desert cryptid: Look Pidge you know Lance has forgiven you by now but if it bothers you that much maybe try talking about it more with him
Desert cryptid: Just find some time to sit him down and talk through what youre feeling and if you need to apologize again then apologize
Desert cryptid: Lance will listen to anything you have to say and you know that

space ace: yeah…..
space ace: thanks keith. i know that youre not the best with this kinda stuff but the fact that you humored me after all i did to lance means a lot to me

Desert cryptid: If it makes you feel any better Im not the most patient person either
Desert cryptid: Ive been a dick to him more times than I can count on both hands but because we talked it through and acknowledged that we could have handled the situation differently it made it a lot easier for the both of us to move on

space ace: ill talk to him when he wakes up
space ace: neither of us slept last night so that might not be for a while…
space ace: his insomnia is getting worse keith im not use to the competition

Desert cryptid: I know
Desert cryptid: Thats one of the things I brought up to Adam and Shiro
Desert cryptid: Adam wants him to see a doctor
Desert cryptid: He wants all of us to see a doctor

space ace: a therapist

Desert cryptid: Yeah. A therapist

space ace: i dont know if im ready to see a therapist
space ace: i really dont

Desert cryptid: As much as I dont want to I know Adam means well
Desert cryptid: And he does have a point. Weve been through a lot theres no way were walking away from any of that mentally or physically unscathed
Desert cryptid: The mental toll is his biggest worry
Desert cryptid: It could help, I guess…

space ace: maybe
space ace: you said you and shiro are going for lunch right

Desert cryptid: You can come if you want
Desert cryptid: I wouldnt mind the extra company

space ace: im already at shiros door
space ace: you think if i sneak in i can scare him
