“I’ve let you guys down so much. I’ve let myself down… I don’t know how you guys can even still care about me.”
Keith opened his mouth to reply, but wasn’t even given a fighting chance.
Lance feels like an idiot. He knows it's time for a change; time to work harder and stop acting like a child. He's a paladin of Voltron. He's supposed to protect people! He doesn't care what happens to him - no one else gets hurt. Never again.
Fic based just after the end of season 5 in which Lance is forced to confront his mistakes and it leads him down a very dark path. Unwilling to accept how dangerous his actions are becoming, it's left up to his team-mates and a certain Blade of Marmora member to find the root of his problems and try to bring him back from the edge.
We worked so hard on this. I promise our writing is better than our summary. Please give it a go!
After all the recent craziness, the team finally gets some down time to visit their families back on Earth. You'd think it would be a dream come true, but for one of the paladins, facing his family has lead to some harsh realisations about his position. With no one else around, it's up to Keith to try and fix it.
