    Summary

    “You know parts of what I do,” Shiro says, carefully, carefully. “Shipments, transport. Bounty hunting. It’s not the safest or steadiest job out there, but it’s – something.” He shrugs again. “Might be worth taking up. Coming with me.”

    The look Keith’s giving him now is downright inscrutable. His eyes are narrowed, roving over Shiro like he’s searching for something, sussing something out. For a moment Shiro’s sure Keith’s going to say no, but what comes out is – “why?”

    It makes Shiro pause. There are a dozen different ways he could answer that question. He taps songsteel fingers on his thigh for a few seconds before smiling wryly.

    “I don’t know your story,” he admits, “but I know your skills. I know you enough. You’re not meant for just racing through dust.”

     

    (Keith's a racer, Shiro's a bounty hunter, and yes, they fall in love. It just takes a while.)

    Summary

    This is Takashi Shirogane, the Black Paladin of Voltron.

    It’s been… I’d say three? Three days since I crashed here. I’m still working out the day/night cycles of this planet since the two suns don’t rise and set at the same time. I was a little late checking the Black Lion’s internal chronometer too, since I had to focus on scouting my immediate surroundings.

    I can’t identify the planet within the map stored in my Lion’s systems. It’s – red, a lot of red, although the ground is softer than a desert’s. It reminds me a lot of Pieria, back home where the Garrison is. There appears to be a canyon some distance to my left. I’m crashed under an outcropping, with some purple and brown bushes and a lot of rocks.

    No other signs of life, which… could be good or bad, I don’t know.

    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.)

     

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

    Summary

    In the desert
    I saw a creature, naked, bestial,
    Who, squatting upon the ground,
    Held his heart in his hands,
    And ate of it.
    I said, “Is it good, friend?”
    “It is bitter—bitter,” he answered;

     

     
    “But I like it
    “Because it is bitter,
    “And because it is my heart.”
     

    (it's just there's a lot going on with Shiro, and Keith could feel free to wake up at any moment, that would be just fine...)
