    Summary

    The reason why the shack was still standing, was because the Nevada wilderness was bleak and empty.
    Open and sprawling, miles and miles of sand and rock with barely any rain each year. Nevada encompassed two deserts, the Mojave stretched across as one of the largest in the continent.
    It was unremarkable, nondescript, and every cliff looked like the one before it.
    Maybe that’s why the Garrison never found the shack, or maybe they didn’t care to look for it.
    (Maybe that’s why the Paladins hadn’t either.)

    He didn’t have anything to do most days, nowhere to go, nobody to fight.
    He ran, he took his knife and strapped on his boots (They were wearing thin and busting at the seams, leaving blisters that bled and bled) and just...ran.
    Until his muscles burned and the air seared his throat and the closest thing to an adrenaline rush burned in his blood.

    (And when he found a cliff just high enough, just dangerous enough...he’d dangle his legs over the edge and scream until the coyotes would howl back.)

    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.

    Summary

    "Yield-" Lotor growls. He holds his hand palm out while he sheathes his sword with the other. "I yield." Keith lets his bayard disappear, grips his bleeding arm, and wonders if he's going to have to deal with an angry prince.

    "Sorry," he says. Should he go? Tell someone he'd somehow maybe injured Lotor enough to put him into a healing pod about five minutes after meeting him face to face? Was he on a hit list now? "I was just kinda... working on instinct there. Is- is it bad?"

    "Oh, no, you hardly nicked me," Lotor says. He gives the blood on his hand a curious glance, wipes it into the dark fabric of his shirt before he reaches back and pulls open his collar by the clasp at the back, tugging at the zipper that runs along his spine until he can push the fabric down his arms until it's all bunched around his slender hips. Lotor turns lightly and a couple lines of bright red blood dribble down of the faint curve of his hip and into his suit. It's a long, but thin line just above the point of his hip bone. "It looks worse than it actually is, I think. But more importantly, who taught you that little trick?" Lotor asks.

    Summary

    Keith's solution to his steadily escalating problem is to hide it and hope it goes away. So instead of noticing what's the matter with Keith, everyone notices the steady escalation of his hiding.

    It's only marginally an improvement. (It's not an improvement at all.)

    Summary

    As it turns out, learning that your house is haunted makes the ghosts a lot more aggressive. Who knew?

    Ah, well. At least one of them is hot. And he's the less-evil one, too, so that's always a plus.
