    Summary

    He’s a slim, too-pretty boy of twenty, and the men of this particular underworld talk about him as though he’s an open flame, a sparking engine near a pool of gasoline: volatile, and not to be handled. Kid’s got balls of sheer fucking steel, Damen’s contact said.

    Which must be true, because having just lost a race against Damen for pink slips, Laurent looks him straight in the eye and says, “Double or nothing?” in a voice like vodka poured straight from the freezer.

    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

    Keith is a cop who looks like a delinquent. Shiro is his buff and sweet office worker husband. They make it work—mostly.

    This is the part where he gathers Shiro up and carries him out of here and they rebuild their life together, away from whatever this is—

    Shiro sighs and closes his eyes, pinching the bridge of his nose. "This is my fault. I can't believe I let you watch John Wick four times in one weekend."

    Summary

    They’re seven when she tells him with all the certainty one had at that age; “When I become captain of my own ship, you can be my first mate.”

    He likes the sound of that.

    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.
