    Summary

    Once a terminally ill author who dreamed of writing the next Great American Novel, Shiro is given a second chance at a long life thanks to a freak lightning strike. As if kissed by Zeus himself, Shiro not only becomes an overnight success writing homoerotic science fiction, but also, a designer-hungry gym rat with stalkers.

    All is well until he loses his muse.

    All is not well when he rediscovers said muse in a callboy wearing Balenciaga tennis shoes.

    Summary

    Shiro called Matt first, knowing that the other paladins and he didn't exact have the type of relationship where he could discuss his and Curtis's relationship issues. Matt's first response was to send him Keith's holo-frequency and fix him with a blank stare.

    "He doesn't want to talk, Matt. If he cared, he would have said something by now."

    Matt sighed. "Don't do that. Don't warp his character in your head that way. When was the last time Keith ran from something before this?" He paused, let Shiro's silence be his answer. "The Garrison, Shiro. After they told the world we died on Kerberos. He doesn't run when he doesn't care. He runs when he cares too much. Stop pretending you don't know that better than anyone else in the damn universe."

    ~~

    They never talked about what happened between Keith and the clone. They really should have. It left a hole in their relationship, one that only got bigger as Shiro settled into his post-war life with Curtis. Some people are meant to be in your life though. No matter how far he and Keith drifted apart, they always seemed to come back to each other.

    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.

    Summary

    Keith leans forward a little further, puts his weight on his arms and kicks his socked feet in the air a few times, like paddling water. “I’ll be your friend, Shiro.”

    Shiro pauses where he’s bent over the couch, meets Keith’s gaze dead-on and stares. “Aren’t you generous.”

    “I’m so good,” Keith chirps.

    “So drunk,” Shiro mumbles. He’s not wrong.
     

    TL;DR a first meeting, a snow in, a Holt, and two lonely boys
