    "Are you tellin' me the heroes and villains around here get along?"

    "Nobody wants to stay in Beacon. Not the crooks, the do-gooders, the merciless, the saviors; but it has us, every single one. I'm saying they've learned to coexist. Anyway, who can really tell the difference between them anymore."

    A boy dressed in red and black taps his fingers anxiously on the bar, "I know what you mean."

    Summary

    “Back at the Garrison when we were learning about warfare medical aid, the officers taught us battlefield amputations. I never thought it would be useful information. The idea just seemed so bizarre. I was going to explore the stars. Not fight wars.”
     
    Shiro isn't the same. Keith can tell he's hiding something from him. He's determined to find out what.

    Summary

    Hanahaki: the disease of unrequited love. When feelings manifest into the physical, one afflicted grows flowers in their lungs, coughing up flower petals. Though rarely fatal, left long enough, it will eventually claim the victim’s life. As surgical removal strips all emotion along with affection, many consider it a fate worse than death.

    In a twisted way, Keith was granted a stay of execution: you can’t have hanahaki for someone who’s dead. It’s been a year since he’s coughed up petals, a year since “Pilot Error” flashed across his television screen.

    But Shiro returns. Shiro isn’t dead. And Keith had decided, months and months ago, that if he were ever given the chance, he wouldn’t let his feelings go unspoken. They have another chance—he thinks.

    Hanahaki takes years to kill, yes. But the Galra didn’t care; they saw it as only weakness. And any weakness within the Champion was to be removed immediately.

    The man named Shirogane Takashi is alive. But the Shiro that Keith had known, and laughed with, and loved, is gone. Logical, practical, and efficient: a perfect commander. Incapable of any emotion.

    And Keith is about to remember the taste of wisteria petals tickling at the back of his throat.

    Summary

    Though Shiro is currently operating his fledgling bakery business out of a decrepit food truck he got for cheap in a repossession sale, he dreams of something more: a cozy bakery and cafe on a tree-lined street somewhere, filled with the smell of fresh coffee and sugar glaze instead of diesel. A little money could go a long way to helping him get off the ground-- and luckily, Keith has money to burn.

    Or: Keith takes care of Shiro’s financial woes, in exchange for a little sugar.
