    Summary

    Keith is a volunteer at the school library, where he holds reading sessions for the kids who might not normally read otherwise. His motivation for being there is solely, one hundred percent genuinely focused on encouraging creativity and imagination in his young charges.

    The smoking hot Kindergarten Teacher has absolutely nothing to do with it. Really.

    Summary

    Shiro is recovering, and Keith is coming to terms with everything he's been through since flinging himself through the wormhole after that pod.

    “Stay with me,” Shiro says softly.

    “I’m right here.”

    Shiro shakes his head and tugs again, this time more insistent.

    Keith’s heart belts in his chest when he realises what Shiro is asking, and he wastes no time in crawling onto the bed beside him and settling against his side. Shiro’s arm curls around his shoulders and pulls him close, and for the first time in a long time Keith can’t think of any place he’d rather be than right here.

    “I missed you,” Shiro says softly.

    He’s asleep before he can realise that quiet tears are staining Keith’s cheeks again.

    Summary

    Lance's harebrained ideas usually result in Shiro wishing he'd taken on some other student as his charge when he joined the mentoring program at their university. This time though, he finds himself almost needing to lie on the ground at Lance's feet and beg for his thanks, because if Lance hadn't spotted Allura across campus, he never would have suggested they go to the bar where she performs with her band, and Shiro would never have met the guy with the too-pretty eyes who plays guitar.

    How should he ask for Keith’s attention? Call him by name? Was it right to be so personal after only meeting the night before? Was something like “Hey you” cool or uncool? Would it be rude to just shove the paper at Keith and hope he opened up first? Personal or impersonal…what was the damn etiquette here?

    Shiro hadn’t been able to make up his mind by the time Keith walked past, and so he settled for blurting out whatever he could to call Keith’s attention.

    "You did good."

    Nailed it, Shiro thought humourlessly.

    Summary

    He parts his lips, tries to say Keith’s name. What escapes is a hoarse wisp of noise. His mouth feels dry, his voice unused. He coughs.

    Keith startles at the noise, hand instinctively closing over Shiro’s as he sits up. He looks around himself, alarmed, before his gaze settles back on Shiro.

    “Shiro.” Keith surges upwards, reaching to press frantic fingers to the pulse at Shiro’s throat, to the line of his brow. And Shiro would honestly reply, say Keith’s name or tell him I’m okay, but his eyes are so heavy and he’s still so tired.

    (But they’re okay. Keith’s okay. They made it.)

    Summary

    So why the Garrison, Shiro asks, then, casually picking up a French fry. Why here, is what he means, why here specifically where he’d landed himself in Shiro’s life and turned it upside-down, why here where he’d quietly and unobtrusively inserted himself in the spaces between Shiro’s ribs. Keith hadn’t happened to Shiro in the same way as most other things that have changed his life so irrevocably. He’d snuck up on Shiro like a peculiar stray cat, there and then there in Shiro’s life, taking up more and more room.

    If Shiro were the type to ascribe wholeheartedly to soulmates, then he’d put it all on the universe, that Keith had ended up here. Chalk it up to Fate, all the incidents in their lives that had brought them to this point of reality, sitting together in a booth at a burger joint as Keith steals his fries.

    (Perhaps he still might. It’s a pretty idea, that everything that’s happened to them has conspired to lead them here. Sometimes Keith turns wide, violet-grey eyes on Shiro and he’s willing to believe in the magnetic pull of this firebright boy.)

    all of you, who knew this from the beginning: oh my god they were soulmates)
