    Summary

    The fate of the universe hangs in the balance.
    Knowing what tragedy awaits the Paladins and by extension the universe, the dying Guardian of Oriande made one last plan, banking it all on two Paladins of Voltron - The Head and the Shield.

    Or...

    Keith and Pidge get sent back to the past, hoping to change the future. But, of course, they've come to realize that for the plan to work, not all things can remain the same.

    Summary

    “I know, Allura. Keith knows too, I promise he does, he just…” Lance sighs, staring at the Black Lion still sitting dormant in the middle of the hangar. “He wants his brother back.”
    Allura joins him in looking over at the Black Lion; Hunk and Pidge end up at their side, staring up at dark lights and slumped limbs. “Maybe we need a temporary Black Paladin.”

    Team Voltron struggles to get back on their feet in the wake of the Battle of the Sarnan Nebula. None of them are handling Shiro's disappearance well, least of all Keith, but the Empire does not stop for one man. The fledgling Coalition needs more protection than four Lions and the Blade can give. The only question is who's filling that empty slot.

    Summary

    It takes some work to pluck off the pieces of Keith’s armor, to get down to this point, but when he does, it’s so satisfying. It’s rare that Keith really gets to let go, to let someone else take care of him. Lance loves breaking him down, getting him to think of nothing but the two of them and the pleasure they share.

    Or: Keith needs Lance to fuck the stress out of him.

    Summary

    Lotor took Allura on the way back from Oriande and now Keith has to take the mantel of Black Paladin to save her and make sure the universe can keep it's defender.

    -OR-

    You know that episode from DotU, I think Give Me Your Princess, where Allura took the black lion and Lotor took her and when the others came to rescue her and Keith got hurt? Well I tried my best to do a VLD remake, but I'm pretty sure the only thing that stayed the same was the plan and one of Keith's wound... sorry.

    Summary

    "Pick me up, so I can pick you up, so we can pick eachother up"

    (Takes place after the Lion swap and Shiro's return to the team, a what if scenario)

    Lance begins to suffer feelings of doubt and begins to fall victim to the voice in his head he has lived with since his early Garrison days. After listening in on the team dragging him through the mud during dinner one night Lance turns to the only person he feel like he can still trust, the only one who wasn't at the dinner conversation, Keith. They promise to pick each other up no matter what happens, right?

    Summary

    Keith's always been a firm believer that you can find out a lot about someone based on their taste in music. It's a personal topic for him and he's a bit guarded with it. But, when he starts hearing Lance sing, what's he going to do with that information?

    Summary

    First Chapter Preview: Tex found him a few minutes before sundown. He walked up to his child and sat down next to him. Tiny sobs shook Keith’s body. After a few minutes, the halfling looked up at his father.

    “Why don’t they like me, Papa?” Keith whispered.

    Tex wrapped his arm around him. Keith burrowed into his chest.

    Tex sighed. His son- his tiny, precious son- was hurting. Not for the first time, Tex cursed Krolia for leaving them.

    “Kids can be very mean, especially when dealing with someone or something they do not understand. You are different from them, which makes it easy for them to pick on you. They have no idea what they are talking about. You are smart and talented, and anyone who you befriend is lucky to have you in their life. Do not let the bullies get to you.”

    Or: Voltron Oneshots from someone who did not watch past Season 7 Episode 1. I got most of my information about Season 7&8 through fanfiction. Most post-war oneshots will follow the fanon version. Almost all of them will have my own personal headcanons. I will add more tags as I include more oneshots.

    Summary

    "Blaytz, my original paladin." Blue supplied in response to his thoughts shifting to the blue alien.
    Blaytz and the Altean seemed to be whispering to each other, giggling. It reminded Lance of whenever him and Pidge would gossip at the dinner (although he and Pidge rarely sat next eachother) or even those nerve wracking times when Pidge and Keith decide they want to prank someone.

    The Altean was average height, for a human at least, and had long blueish white hair gently cascading down his back, tied in a loose ponytail.
    His face was what startled Lance the most. It was shockingly similar to his own. Smooth tanned skin, he didn't seem to be wearing any make up, unlike Lance who usually wore it to cover his freckles. His eyes seemed to be glowing with excitement in a blue that matched the markings that lay under his eyes.

    "That is Amira, my second paladin."

    Lance finds out he's part-Altean along with his feelings for a certain red paladin. Goes through seasons 2-3 and becomes canon divergent at about the season 3 point. Lance is my favourite character so of course there's gonna be a ton of langst.

    Summary

    Maybe it wouldn’t be such a problem, he thinks, if he could just tell Lance the truth. Maybe, he thinks, then Lance would understand. And he wouldn’t get so pissed at him for almost accidentally killing himself once a week. Maybe it would be easier, if he could just be a little more honest with them both.

    But the thing is, it’s not easy. If things were easy, Keith wouldn’t be out on the training deck every night until he’s so exhausted that he can’t see straight—until he reaches that point of fading out of focus just long enough for the gladiator to sweep his legs out from under him. And if things had an easy explanation, then he wouldn’t need Lance to patch him up in the hours where all of their friends are asleep. And he wouldn’t be bleeding. And he wouldn’t be hurting.
    _____

    Keith tries to navigate leadership and the messy concept of love in all of its forms—all while trying to keep the darkest, buried secrets from his past from bubbling back to the surface. It doesn’t go as well as you might expect.

    Summary

    THIS STORY IS CURRENTLY ON HIATUS

    “How could any of this possibly make sense? You can’t just--”

    “I don’t give a fuck what you think! I don’t even know you! But rest assured, I’m completely fine,” he yelled, slamming his hands on the table. “Shiro isn’t, though, so let’s find him!”

    Lance felt like he could explode, like he was a bomb and his fuse was nearly burned through. There were so many problems that they needed to focus on. Lotor had seen him in the alternate reality. He’d known what to say to fuck with him. Keith had kissed him and left. Shiro was being… mind-controlled or something. Lance had piloted the fucking Black Lion and now Red was gone, too.

    And his friends were all staring at him like he was a monster.

    ***

    Lance made it back to his own reality. He was home. Unfortunately, things don't go back to normal like he had hoped and he struggles to connect with team Voltron. Worse still, he finds himself at the center of a mysterious Galra conspiracy.

    Summary

    “You were all in danger Lance! And the mission...the mission was more import—“

    “Don’t,” interrupts Lance, voice somehow both shaking and deadly at once, “don’t you dare finish that sentence, Keith Kogane, how,” his voice breaks as he looks back up at Keith, a fire in his eyes that makes him look every bit the red Paladin. “Don’t you dare try to tell me that anything is more important than you.

    Summary

    This was supposed to be a routine diplomatic mission. Instead, Keith got some sort of alien potion thrown in his face and now he's in danger of freezing to death. The aliens who did it insist that they were trying to help, but their "help" backfired. Everything is insanely cold, all the time- except Pidge and Lance. Nothing and nobody else can warm Keith's frozen insides. Which is unfortunate, because Lance and Pidge are dating and Keith feels like he's a nuisance to them. Then he realizes he's falling for them... okay, this just got even worse.

    Summary

    “You’re not going to die, okay?” Lance promised, wishing from the deepest part of his heart and soul that it would not become a lie.

    “Sure feels like it,” Keith whispered.

    “You are not dying,” Lance’s voice was rough and frantic, trying to convince Keith as much as he wanted to convince himself. Keith’s eyes fluttered open, and he met Lance’s blue and red-rimmed ones. There was such certainty, determination, anger and desperation fixated into them, that Keith was unable to contradict him.

    “I’m not dying,” Keith decided to say, repeating Lance’s words. And even if it felt like he was lying to himself, something about the trust in Lance’s eyes made him want to believe that maybe, just maybe, this wasn’t a lie.

    Or: a mission goes terribly wrong, Keith gets fatally injured, and Lance only can try his best to save him.
