    Summary

    Tasked with finding and teaching fifty students with the potential to reach his caliber as a pilot, Shiro instead finds one who has the potential to surpass him. But first, he's got to get the scrawny delinquent to shape up and fly right.

    On impulse Shiro shoved the low table out of the way, and drew his chair closer to Keith. He bent forward, elbows on his knees, and held out his hands, palm-up. Keith was already cornered—literally and figuratively, on so many levels—and Shiro wasn't about to make that sensation worse. But he could show he came unarmed.

    Summary

    The sick feeling never really goes away. It spikes and it wanes and during the waning periods it becomes a background noise that you learn to live with.
    When it spikes, you take your guns apart, one by one or first-step-by-first-step, until it starts to die down.
    For an anon who prompted Rocket dealing with OCD. Warnings inside.
    Complete.

    Summary

    Sometimes good things can happen in only a year. The problem is, then, what do you do when the year is over?

    Takashi "Shiro" Shirogane is 28, in his last year of a Ph.D. in history after his discharge from the army; he's burnt-out, aching. He's applying for jobs he doesn't feel qualified for and almost certainly won't get, with the way the academic job market is these days. He's thinking about his future and all he sees is the darkness of space, spreading out before him.

    And then there's Keith, 24, a senior in history, struggling to keep his focus on the future instead of the past; Lance, 22, a senior in biology with a lot of debt and doubt on his shoulders; Hunk, 23, a senior in mechanical engineering, the first in his family to go to college; Pidge, 19, a junior in computer engineering and kind of spectacularly bad at being left to their own devices; and Allura, 30, in her last year of a Ph.D. in physics, apparently the only one whose life isn't falling apart.
