    Summary

    “Enough about me, though, what’s it like to be Keith Kogane nowadays?” Lance tugs on a lock of Keith’s hair again. “Still writing?

    Keith bites his lip. “Uh,” he says, remembering the the boredom, the sameness. The daze, the numbness, the emptiness. Working a boring insurance job, living in a shitty apartment, the typewriter gathering dust back in his room. “I really think I peaked in high school.”

    Lance straight up laughs at that. “That’s impossible! You’re out of your mind,” Lance says. Their stop is coming up, the train is slowing down. “You know, cause we never hooked up in high school.”

     

    Or the one where Keith and Lance haven't seen each other since high school, but they get a second chance.

    Inspired by the song 80's Films by Jon Bellion

    Summary

    “The kid who sits next to me keeps trying to talk to me,” Keith complains to his father that night. “I don’t know how long I’m going to have to ignore him before he gets the hint. Earlier he tried to tell me that the moon’s gravitational pull to Earth was romantic. Romantic. That’s the stupidest thing I’ve ever heard! What does that even mean, Dad? It’s just science. There’s nothing romantic about science!”

    His dad hums. “I don’t know, I think I can kinda see where the kid’s coming from. Maybe next time, you can ask him what he means. Start a conversation about it.”

    “I don’t want to start a conversation about it,” Keith grumbles. “I’ve been trying to avoid conversation.”

    “He’s just trying to be friendly, Keith,” his father chuckles. “It’s not the worst thing in the world.”

    Maybe it is, Keith thinks, but doesn’t say. “Whatever,” he mumbles instead. “So, what’s the new gossip about Mrs. Finkle and the guy who keeps digging up her rose bushes?”

    Keith Kogane joins the Galaxy Garrison with a mission, and that mission does not include making friends or falling in love. Fate, evidently, has other plans.

    Summary

    ((formerly titled Angst and Sexytimes lmao))

    They didn't kiss.

    They did kiss in the way that his skin is delicate and splotched the next morning. But they didn't kiss in the way that sends euphoria shooting into Keith's prefrontal cortex. They didn't kiss in the way that Keith has to reapply chapstick before sleeping. They didn't kiss in the way that Lance greets him with French toast and Imagine Dragons on the radio.

    Lance doesn't greet him like that.

    Lance greets him with the radio antenna down, the tv off, the stove cold, and the words "we need to break up" between sips from a single glass of orange juice. The words "we need to break up" accompanied by the lull of rushing water and the thud of confusion tight against Keith's chest.

    Summary

    Lance looks over at him, his high cheekbones, tousled locks, a sharp jawline, years of war in his eyes and a chin raised not in arrogance but in determination and confidence. It makes Lance feel lost when he looks at him.

    Keith’s eyes slide over to meet Lance’s. He smiles. “What?”

    “You don’t have to go back out there,” is what falls from Lance’s mouth. “You don’t have to keep yourself in this fight. You could stay here with the rest of us.”

    Keith’s eyebrows pull together, like he’s worried. “I’m part of the Blade of Marmora,” he says quietly. “This is what I belong to. I can’t just sit here.”

    Lance turns back to the sunset. “I thought you’d say something like that."

    -

    In which Lance is afraid, Keith is running, and everything hurts.

    Summary

    The Wastes are all Keith has ever known.

    For nineteen years, the arid desert is all he's seen of the world; his only reprieve from monotonous existence being his father's fantastical tales of heroic deeds and perilous battles among the stars. He can't help but feel drawn to those stars—their beckoning voices a constant tickle in the back of his mind. He dreams of following their call to adventure, but as the years pass, dreams dwindle and concede to obligation. What were once fantasies of purpose and fulfillment wither away entirely, and Keith has officially resined himself to a life of empty nothingness.

    Until one day, fate literally comes crashing into Keith's life, and he is swept up into an epic tale of his own.
