(black paladin lance because enough is never enough)
“Quit being stressed?" Lance stuttered, disbelief marring his features. "I’m sorry, can we revisit this weeks events? I’m the new black paladin, Allura’s pregnant, Pidge just got poisoned by a freaking… Chihuahua, the castle took us to a haunted star system and stopped working, and Keith is… okay, where the hell is Keith?”
“Oh yeah,” said Pidge, peering at him through puffy red eyes. “You know that unidentified ship that was hanging around and you were all, don’t approach the unidentified ship, well Keith just left the hanger and is approaching the unidentified ship.”
When the castle seemingly wormholes itself to a distant star system, the team, with Lance as their newly appointed black paladin, don't think much of it. Until the wormhole returns to take them the next night, and the next, and they find themselves drawn relentlessly back to a dark pocket of space, where the pull of the sole planet and the cave entrenched within it taunt Lance with the awful truth of his family's past.
Two years after their accidental ascension into space, Zarkon is defeated, Shiro has been recovered, and Lance and the rest of the paladins are finally preparing to return home to Earth.
Earth, where his family is, where the fighting ends, and, where Lance looks forward to pizza and hopefully a date with Keith.
They’re all set to go, until they receive a distress call from an uncharted planet and discover the sender to be none other than Prince Lotor, awake, alive, and desperate to form an alliance with Voltron.
An alliance with a charismatic Galran prince and a plot to return the wrongly taken quintessence… its just one more mission. Easy? Lance thinks so.
Then again, he was never the instinctual one.
(or, Lotor wants Lance, everyone wants a break, and Lance and Keith just want each other tbh)
Fall Away, or the one in which…
Ulaz said he’d get Shiro out, not get him home.
If Katie can’t search the Garrison, then she’ll search the damn desert herself.
Lance doesn't think being locked in a cryopod for 10,000 years was covered in his Paladin training.
Hunk doesn’t wanna leave his family or the Balmera, but if that’s what it takes to keep them safe... he’s gonna miss Shay.
Keith can’t punch Sendak without getting in trouble, but if the Red Lion suddenly went missing…

Keith isn't prepared to find himself clinging to Lance, his annoying classmate at the Garrison who is also maybe his "soulmate." He isn't prepared to get expelled or to live alone in the desert and search for the source of a mysterious energy. He definitely isn't prepared to fly into space on a whim or to pilot a magical robot lion in a millennia-old war for the entire universe.
But all of that does happen, so now he has to deal with it. Keith has to adjust to life in space, to becoming a soldier, and to building close and trusting relationships with his teammates – including Lance.
