    Shiro has been back in Arizona for a few months now and is trying his best to readjust. He is. But it's hard to go from military pilot to broken soldier and act like everything is okay. But everything is not okay. Until he meets a really cute bartender. Then everything becomes...complicated.

    Summary

    Keith hasn’t been right since the accident. His brother is in a coma and it’s all his fault. That’s what people keep telling him, anyway.

    Lance doesn’t know what he’s doing with his life. He’s twenty-four, with no clue where he’ll end up five years from now.

    After the two collide one stormy, autumn evening, nothing is ever the same. Sure, they’re broken, but they might just be able to find their missing pieces within one another.

    AKA Keith uses Shiro’s hospitalization as an excuse to see the cute florist. Shit gets fluffy.

    Summary

    Moving to Altea is not for the faint of heart. Lance knew going into this that the cost of living would be higher than it was in Arizona. On top of that, even with his scholarship, graduate tuition at University of Altea is still no joke. Since he’s burning through what cash he had saved up (at $1050 a month, his studio apartment is a steal, but first and last month’s rent, security deposit, application AND broker’s fee will still make a dent), a service industry job was the logical solution.

    Hopefully nothing at the workplace becomes a distraction...

    Or: the Voltron restaurant AU where the new kid develops a crush on the edgy bartender, and ruckus ensues. Restaurants can get so dramatic and incestual, y’all. Trust me, I work at one.

    Summary

    Keith Kogane. He was a teacher in the day, and worked at a club at night. The club, was Voltron's. Ran by his older brother Shirogane Takashi and owned by Shiro's girlfriend, Allura. Keith made drinks, and played songs on the piano occasionally. But, one day, his brother brought in an up and coming band. The Paladin's. Keith is fine with all of them, but one. The lead singer, Lance McClain. A stubborn asshole who he had a one night stand with and who his brother eventually gets to work with him at the club. What happens when the other Paladins find out Keith can play piano? And the occasional guitar?

    Keith also knew that this band looked familiar. But he just didn't know how! He blamed it on the accident, but maybe, just maybe, they can help him figure it out.

    Bumped rating up to M due to drinking, swearing, and implied sexual content

    Summary

    "Support your brother, and his shitty indie band!" Shiro teased, poking Keith in the shoulder with his drum stick. Keith let out a sigh.

    "I'm here, aren't I?" he replied, settling himself in one of the crowded front row seats that Shiro had reserved for him. It gave him perfect view of the stage and the lone mic stand that stood in the centre of it.

    "Which I thank you for that." Shiro smiled, following his gaze to the stand. "And by the way, keep your eye on our lead singer."

    "Why?"

    "You'll see."
    ---
    Keith does not like indie music whatsoever. But he’s willing to change his mind, especially if it came to the Paladins’ heartthrob, flirty lead singer, Lance McClain.

    Summary

    Keith is a bartender at Bar of Marmora who hates Friday nights and just wants to make rent so he can go home. He sees a lot of things that don't phase him (vomit, terrible flirting, drunken injuries, sloppy make-outs, people ugly crying into a vodka soda, more vomit, etc.) but lately he just can't get one of his regulars out of his head.

    Summary

    Music is a force that brings people together, that tells stories full of emotion, and it can do wonderful things. For Keith, it is a way to express himself, but also to make money for rent. For Shiro, it's his life long dream, music is everything he is, and that is why he's a conductor.

    They fall into orbit around each other, like binary stars, never talking. Until one day, Shiro screws up the courage to finally talk to his favorite busker.

    Matt? He's just there to point and laugh.

    Summary

    !ENGLISH STORY!

    Keith's a bartender at a popular club, Lance is a customer that seeks for fun. But once the latino spotted Keith, he couldn't look away. Such bright eyes, were only meant to be looking at him. But Keith wasn't an easy catch, playing hard to get. And Lance's patience was slowly running out, but Keith wouldn't regret.

    "Il me regardait, et je le regardais. Et puis, je les ai vu. Les étoiles dans ses yeux n'avaient jamais encore tant brillé. Et ce sentiment? Je n'oublierai jamais ça." (He looked at me, and I looked at him. And then, I saw it. The stars in his eyes had never shined so brightly before. And that feeling? I'll never forget that.)

    French is one of the languages of love, et je pense que le français est une très belle langue. (;

    Summary

    Shiro's desperate and goes on blind dates in an attempt to find love. The bartender ends up complicating things.

    Underneath the neon Marmora sign over the bar area, the bartender works diligently on drinks, pale skin glowing in the soft blue light. "Got anything strong enough to get me through the rest of the night?" Shiro asks him.

    The man quirks an eyebrow, casting him a sharp smile, and fuck, there goes Shiro's heart. "Please, my drinks are legendary."

    "Give me your best."

    A Mai Tai is slid his way. "Hakuna mamaitai," he whispers in a low voice, sending shivers down Shiro's spine. "It means no memories for the rest of your night."

    (Shiro's a goner.)

    Summary

    On a raining day Keith lost his parents. Every time it rained he always found himself remembering and playing back on the event over and over. He grew hatred towards the rain. Not until he was walking on his way home through the parks fountain when he stumbled upon a boy. A boy with tanned skin and brown short hair dancing in the rain. The boy seemed to have control of the water droplets as they never touched his skin. The water formed swirls around him. Keith was found struck in awe as he saw the boy in the rain, smiling widely and laughing as if he didn't have a worry in the world.

    Summary

    Scoring the new bar-tending position at Lady A's strip club is a lucky break for Keith. What's luckier? He gets to work alongside his brother Shiro. Even luckier than that? It's a male strip club, which means Keith's never short of entertainment during working hours - especially when Blue Rider takes the stage. Because Blue's hot - definitely talented - and definitely taking an interest in Keith. The only thing that isn't so lucky? Keith's already got a boyfriend. That, and he's bad at saying no when it comes to attractive boys with magnetic personalities.
