    Summary

    "There are three estates in Parliament but in the Reporters' Gallery yonder there sits a Fourth Estate more important far than they all. It is not a figure of speech or witty saying, it is a literal fact, very momentous to us in these times." -- Edmund Burke (1729-1797)

    The Fourth Estate: a segment of society that wields the soft but momentous power of public opinion despite its lack of formal recognition within the political system.

    Or, the first thing that rebuilds itself after Sendak's defeat is the press. With the press comes social media. You know what you get when you have social media? Fandom. You get fandom.

    (multimedia fic following the Paladins & the MFE-Ares pilots post-season 7)

    Summary

    James never expected that he and Keith would fall together again after everything, the same way that they used to when they were still students, and yet, here he is, in Keith’s newly assigned quarters, buried to the hilt with Keith’s hips in a bruising grip, cataloging the new scars on Keith’s skin and trying not to hear someone else’s name in Keith’s bitten-off moans.

    Summary

    In the desert
    I saw a creature, naked, bestial,
    Who, squatting upon the ground,
    Held his heart in his hands,
    And ate of it.
    I said, “Is it good, friend?”
    “It is bitter—bitter,” he answered;

     

     
    “But I like it
    “Because it is bitter,
    “And because it is my heart.”
     

    (it's just there's a lot going on with Shiro, and Keith could feel free to wake up at any moment, that would be just fine...)

    Summary

    Shirogane Takashi is dead.

    Keith, an assassin working within the dangerous yakuza underworld, knows this better than anyone because he killed him himself. Once a prominent member of the Galra, Kyoto’s most ruthless gang, Shiro is now just a corpse with a hole in it where Keith plunged his knife. Which is really too bad, given the way Keith feels...felt...about him.

    Now while grappling with his desire to escape Kyoto’s vicious underbelly, Keith is suddenly presented with a startling question: what if, somehow, Shiro isn’t as dead as he thought?

    Summary

    Sooner or later, you have to jump.

     

    They call themselves Runners. They exist on the edge between the gloss and the reality: the mirror'sedge. Runners see the city in a different way. They see the flow. Rooftops become pathways and conduits, possibilities and routes of escape. The flow is what keeps them running, keeps them alive.

    Keith is in love with Shiro, leader of the Runners. Maybe it's about time he does something about that.

    Summary

    It took a while for Keith to identify the feeling that rushed through his chest every time he saw Shiro: when Shiro caught his eye from the opposite end of the mess hall, when Keith saw him smiling in groups of other junior officers, when any of the cadets spoke Shiro’s name with a reverence that proved they didn’t know anything beyond the poster boy’s glowing reputation.

    Happiness.

    If this was what friendship felt like, Keith was finally starting to understand why everyone made such a big deal out of it.

    ***

    When Keith first met Shiro, he had no idea how dramatically his life was about to change—or how crucial Shiro would become to every aspect of it.

    ...Shiro, who wouldn't stop dying.

    “So… let me get this straight, Lance.”

    “Uh-huh.”

    “You are… a defender of the universe.”

    “Yep.”

    “Blue Paladin of Voltron, and pilot of the Red Lion.”

    “Heck yeah.”

    Literally one of the saviors of our known universe—“

    “You can tell me I’m your hero any time, Keith.”

    Summary

    “I’m sorry I keep waking you up,” Shiro whispers the fifth night in and Keith shrugs, fingertips tracing the slope of Shiro’s scarred stomach.

    “I was always a light sleeper, anyway,” Keith tells him. “Mom’s even worse. She said it was a good skill to hone, especially in dangerous situations. By the end of the second year, one of us only had to sigh in order to wake the other up.” He tilts his head as he watches Shiro, touching his hip. “You don’t have to apologize, Shiro. I’m glad I’m here.”

    The sad truth is, Shiro knows he isn’t just saying that.

    “He's got your hair,” Shiro whispers.

    Keith watches himself resettle the child nervously, like he still isn’t sure how to hold it. He watches himself smile. “Hey, don’t blame me for all that,” he hears himself say. “I’ve seen what you look like in the morning.”

    Summary

    “You know, for months, Shiro — since Allura put you back in — the only things you’ve said to me are about fighting,” Keith says, and his voice is level, only betrayed by the way it cracks over the middle of his sentence.

    “I —“ Shiro says, wanting to deny it.

    “I’ll cross the universe to save you,” Keith says, fierce. “And if you don’t want to talk to me, that’s fine. I’ll still be here. But I’m done pretending it doesn’t fucking hurt, being treated like a tactical asset.”

    Summary

    Keith loses a fight with Haggar. It's bad.

    It’s too much to take in at once—there’s blood on Keith's face, in his hair, streaked down the white of his Paladin armor on one side. A mark spreads across his cheek like a bruise, dark and lurid, and he’s holding one arm at an odd angle—

    No, it’s broken.

    He takes a halting step toward them. The splatter of blood hitting the floor is audible.

    That's how they learn Altean healing pods don't work on Galra.

    Summary

    The Garrison may have survived an alien occupation, but it never prepared them for this.

    “Oh my god,” Nadia Rizavi says, “someone’s going to live their dream of being the cream filling in a Shiro and Keith sandwich.”

    Matt Holt—miraculously alive, pony-tailed, asshole—turns to the slices of bread in question, “why can’t you two just negotiate your threesomes over a bottle of wine like everyone else?”

    The Galaxy Garrison hosts a charity auction.

    The future-flash ends before Keith can formulate the thought—leaving him on his knees, clutching the wolf’s fur against the time gale.

    Hunk, Keith thinks. He pieces the past together. Sees an image of unmistakable courage.

    (Keith has a hard time re-integrating with the team after the Quantum Abyss. He finds some motivation.)
