    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

    James hates Keith. He hates that he’d ever entertained the notion that they could be something more than each other’s outlet.

    He hates that he’d never gotten the chance.

    He’s got it bad. He doesn’t need anyone to tell him, but Kinkade does in the showers that night. Not with words, but with the judgmental arch of his eyebrows when James leans down to pull off his socks and accidentally presses his bare ass against Keith’s. Any embarrassment he’s ever felt towards public nudity has been long-buried beneath the struggle to defend the earth and what that necessitates, but, as it turns out, an accidental moon landing with his misguided past crush turned sexual awakening is the limit to James’ composure.

    Rizavi will later report that she heard his shriek from the women’s showers. She’s never one to lose an opportunity to rib him, but secretly James believes her. Before that moment, he wasn’t aware his voice was capable of reaching that high an octave.

    “I guess that’s why they tell you not to drop the soap,” the Holt boy comments. “You peeled out so fast I think you left skid marks.”

    Summary

    “You seem familiar… I feel like I know you from somewhere.”

    Keith shrugged, dropping the change into the man’s palm before closing the cash register.

    “Sorry. I think you have the wrong person.”

     

    -

    It started the same way each time, with Takashi Shirogane looking at Keith.

    Summary

    “Hey, hey, you’re okay,” a voice says softly, Shiro’s voice. A warm hand wraps around Keith’s clenched fingers. “I know it hurts, but you’re gonna be okay. I promise.” Artificial fingers caress his cheek. “Just try to relax.” Keith just lays there, breathing deeply and shivering as he listens to Shiro’s soft words. “That’s it,” Shiro murmurs softly, “deep, slow breaths.” There’s movement somewhere off to the right. Burning warmth travels up Keith’s arm and the pain recedes in a numbing tide that leaves him drifting close to sleep. His limbs turn to lead and his head is wrapped in cotton and Shiro’s soft words follow him back down into darkness.

    A season 7 missing scene.

    Shiro knows fear. Intimately. But as the sky erupts in flames and the lifeless form of the Black lion plummets towards the earth, he learns one or two things more about it.
