    Summary

    When the Hero Public Safety Commission says ‘jump,’ Hawks skips asking 'how high' and works his way from jump rope to jumping jacks before opening his mouth to complain that he can fly. Their latest request, a PR campaign geared to present Hawks as the heroic icon of the masses, at least seems easier than getting his feathers burned off by Dabi’s pet noumu… Right?

    In which Hawks gets surgery, defeats a traumatized villain, receives some unwelcome fanmail, garners the sympathy of terrorists, accidentally forges enough relationships to cumulatively value as at least one friend, and maybe, eventually, asks for help - not necessarily in that order.

    Summary

    Okay, breathe. Just breathe. Gotta keep breathing. It's not like this is the first time I've been locked in a dark room. It was the first time that it had been quite this dark, and the first time that it happened on an alien planet with a gaping hole in his leg, but that was beside the point.

    OR

    An injured Keith is imprisoned by Galra-hating aliens, but the flashbacks to his childhood are the worst part.

    Summary

    Coffee. Stress. No soulmate in sight. While everyone around him has their perfect mate, Keith's soulmark burns, left untouched. He knows better than to fall for society's lies: a soulmate doesn't guarantee happiness. He's fine on his own, until one out-of-season Frappuccino changes everything, and maybe even his mind.

    Summary

    Over the years Keith gets used to being alone. But during one particularly bad rut, and after days of chasing something that doesn’t exist—utterly exhausted and on the brink of desperation—he caves and stumbles to his laptop. He flips it open and stares at the page that’s been open for months—ATLAS: Heat Sharing and Non-Sexual Intimacy Partners Inc.

    Summary

    Adjusting to their new relationship, Shiro struggles to get Keith to open up to the rest of the team. He understands, of course, that between disappearing twice, dealing with a clone, and leading Voltron in his absence, Keith's walls are higher and as insurmountable as they have ever been. Despite their newfound love, Keith seems lonelier and further away than ever.

    A well-meaning gesture from a grateful alien allows those walls to come down. Just not the way anyone expected.

    Keith wouldn't know. He's only two-and-a-half years old.
