    Summary

    Four-and-a-half years ago, Keith lost the friend he was in love with, searched for any trace of Shiro, and found nothing. Resigned to never seeing him again, Keith honored a request that Shiro sent him: he tried to move on. He took a scholarship package and moved to Massachusetts. He tried to make himself a new life.

    Now, Keith’s a broke, autistic history student at Kaltenecker University. He has trauma he doesn’t acknowledge, a depressive downswing that he’s ignoring, his Mom’s old knife, and a support network of about two people (his ex-girlfriend, Allura, and Kolivan, his academic advisor). His life’s a mess and his apartment’s a shit-hole, but at least they’re his.

    Then, Keith yells at the punk band keeping him awake at four in the morning and the last thing that he expected drops into his life. Namely: Shiro, with long hair and new scars, but clean, sober, and away from his abusive ex. Worse, Shiro seems happy to have found Keith again.

    This joy wouldn’t be bad if it made sense, but to Keith, it absolutely doesn’t. Shiro shouldn’t want Keith back in his life after what happened between them in Chicago, and there is definitely no way that Shiro ever loved Keith back — right?

    Summary

    There was once a star, far from Earth.

    Hundreds of millions of years ago, it became a supernova, and every system and planet within several million light years became blanketed in a great, blue energy, creating a nebula unlike any other in the universe.

    Many centuries ago, the area was conquered by Zarkon, a Galra considered like a god to His people.

    A few decades ago, a mining accident on a planet in the middle of nowhere uncovered the nebula's shocking secret.

    Thirteen years ago, a ship was commissioned to save a young boy's life, its existence kept secret from the Empire at large.

    And, one month ago, Takashi Shirogane phased through Zarkon, and abruptly disappeared, during the moment of Voltron's greatest triumph.

    The above is what happened beforehand.

    This is the story of what happened after.

    Summary

    “He’d have an easier time of it if there were somebody to mentor him,” says the General. He looks at Shiro sidelong. “I understand you’ll be stationed here for the next few years.”

     

    Shiro thinks of the flinch, and he knows already there's only one answer he can make.

     

    "What can I do?"

     

    Five years before Voltron, three years before Kerberos, Shiro finds Keith, and Keith finds a home.
