    Summary

    “Is this a personal whim or a paid venture?” Eleven’s voice was soft as the point of the assassin’s blade traced his throat. He didn’t dare speak up, didn’t dare to move a muscle.

    There would be no reason for the assassin to answer at all, and yet he did. “...Paid.” He answered, voice just as strained from Eleven’s own sword. The single obstacle keeping them from completing their goal.

    “Then perhaps I can offer you a better deal?” Eleven asked. It was a mad idea, borne of the daydreams inspired by this small taste of the outside, by the adrenaline pumping through his veins, but it was as good a chance to take as any.

    Summary

    “Farewell, the next time we meet may well be when I organize one of these for myself.”

    Sylvain froze in the act of setting his champagne flute on the table. It really did feel as if he had gone cold, ice pricked down his spine, and then he suddenly felt hot.

    “What?”

    Felix’s expression hadn’t changed. He looked coolly aloof, if slightly irritated, but that was just his face these days. Felix made a small impatient sound, presumably at having to repeat himself, “I’ve been told I need to consider marriage. Sooner rather than later.”

    --
    Tldr; after learning Felix is being pressured to marry, Sylvain makes some ill-advised advances on his friend, and realizes his feelings for Felix aren't exactly as platonic as he once thought.

    Summary

    But Shiro doesn’t bring the sun, because that’s Keith. Keith is the one who brings warmth, hidden in the gentleness of his eyes and the curve of his cheekbones. The slope of his smile sets Shiro on fire.

    Shiro doesn’t do that. Shiro brings clouds and shadows and rain that’s so fucking cold it seeps into his bones every day and turns them to ice, and it feels like he’s always just one misstep away from shattering against the ground.

    God, how he wants to shatter.

    In which Shiro and Keith come home from the war and help each other rebuild. Picks up right after Season 7.

    Summary

    Shiro called Matt first, knowing that the other paladins and he didn't exact have the type of relationship where he could discuss his and Curtis's relationship issues. Matt's first response was to send him Keith's holo-frequency and fix him with a blank stare.

    "He doesn't want to talk, Matt. If he cared, he would have said something by now."

    Matt sighed. "Don't do that. Don't warp his character in your head that way. When was the last time Keith ran from something before this?" He paused, let Shiro's silence be his answer. "The Garrison, Shiro. After they told the world we died on Kerberos. He doesn't run when he doesn't care. He runs when he cares too much. Stop pretending you don't know that better than anyone else in the damn universe."

    ~~

    They never talked about what happened between Keith and the clone. They really should have. It left a hole in their relationship, one that only got bigger as Shiro settled into his post-war life with Curtis. Some people are meant to be in your life though. No matter how far he and Keith drifted apart, they always seemed to come back to each other.
