    Summary

    Shiro pines, Keith paints, and of course—they were roommates.

    He's quiet. You'll like him.

    Keith is at least thirty things at first glance and none of them are quiet—but the worst part is that Shiro recognizes him, and evidently so does Keith. The boy from the art show.

    “You…” Keith’s eyes—his blue, blue eyes—go wide and then slide to the space behind Shiro where the first painting he bought is hanging. Shiro wonders if he likes it any better now than he did the first time. “You…” he repeats, but trails off.

    Summary

    The ghost of what Shiro's lost haunts him, and Keith tries to find a way home.

    “Shiro?” someone asks, and later he won’t remember who, but he’ll remember his own stillness, like maybe if he didn’t breathe or speak or move, time would stop moving against him.

    He imagines it: the cruiser’s scattered pieces pulling in, piecing itself back together, the net of purple light coalescing, and the Galra fighter there, intact and safe. Keith—

    “Shiro?” someone asks again.

    Voltron falls apart.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Keith "dies" at the end of season 4 but is kept in the astral realm by the Black Lion. He accidentally haunts a mourning, guilt-riden Shiro, who thinks he is going mad with loss.
    They are together by the end.

    aaawwwww

    “For the first time in your career, you show up late, stinking of sex, covered in hickeys, and smart mouth a superior officer. I gotta ask, lieutenant, is she worth it? Bein up here getting humiliated in front of your whole squad?” Without missing a beat, Shiro replied, “Sir, yes, sir!” God help him, he actually meant it.

    Summary

    Keith tells the truth, makes a friend, and bleeds. Lotor falls hard.

    “Did you… Did you seduce the enemy?” Lance asks. “I didn’t know you had it in you.”

    Keith frowns. “I didn’t seduce him.”

    Silence descends and it’s one of those moments when he’s not in on the joke, because everyone is sharing looks.

    “I didn’t,” Keith repeats.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    “You're an incredible pilot,” Keith continues, pressing his advantage. “I've never seen anyone fly like you.” It's more words than he's strung together in weeks.

    Lotor’s mouth falls open further, his hair falling forward into his face. Lance's words come back to him, like a plague. He just wants someone to call him pretty.

    Summary

    "He doesn’t want to trust these people. He shouldn’t, not if he wants to protect himself, not if he wants to stay safe. He needs to maintain distance if he wants to remain intact and come out of this war unscathed.

    But there’s something about Keith."

    In which Lotor reflects on the fragility of man and the contradiction that is Keith Kogane.

    “Is it a bad thing?’

     

    “No... it’s amazing.”

     

    That is not the response Lotor anticipated. It makes him feel… nice.
