    Summary

    After his third year of college, Matt announces that he’s become the lead singer of a band. They spend the entire summer practicing in Shiro’s garage.

    Pidge is too busy worrying about college apps and planning for her senior year science fair project to get involved in her brother’s antics.

    That is, until she meets the band’s bass player, and decides that maybe she can suffer through Matt’s shitty vocals after all.

    Summary

    The leader stepped forward, and the betas flanking him moved further out to the side to keep a clear line of fire on Max without impeding the alpha’s progress. The alpha’s nostrils flared and his advancing steps stuttered, pausing and then resuming twice as fast. Max felt a sick little swoop in his belly, grim satisfaction that his plan was working mixed with an awareness of what that would mean for him later. Guns down, gentlemen. Oscar protocol.

    The betas lowered their rifles instantly, pointing them at the ground in front of Max instead of his chest. Max took a deeper breath in, his tension easing a bit as he moved past the part of the plan where he might just get shot dead before he had a chance to try to bargain. It had always been a risk; it had just seemed like a better death than slow starvation.

    The alpha stepped closer, looking him over. He was a big man, but also quiet, light on his feet. Max tipped his chin up. It was a gesture of submission, and it showed that his neck was bare. No bonding bites, no competing claims. The added vulnerability made him tremble a little harder, but it was worth it for the way the alpha zeroed in on his throat.

    Summary

    Shiro knows better than to expect love in an arranged marriage. This is all for the sake of universal peace, after all, and solidifying a Terran-Galran alliance. At the very least, Shiro can hope to make a friend out of this.

    Becoming friends would be much easier, though, if he and his husband could actually communicate. With a language barrier and a mountain of cultural differences between them, getting to know Keith proves to be a challenge.

    Luckily, Shiro's always worked well with challenges.

    Summary

    If Shiro's life were a movie, this would be the part where the music would swell and everything would slow down.

    He's not sure how long he stands there, just watching, but it's not until another hotel patron brushes past him that Shiro comes back down to Earth. Thank God Keith hasn't seen him yet. Meeting eyes from across the room seems romantic in theory, but Shiro's pretty sure his open staring would be anything but in reality. Better going for a smooth introduction, he decides, steeling himself and walking over with confidence he doesn't feel.

    "Hey there, Wild Card."

    Takashi Shirogane is the best in the world at tennis, and the absolute worst at love.

    (Or, Wild Card through Shiro's eyes.)
