lance honestly was glad that shiro was back. though he was fully supportive of keith becoming the black lion and had adapted to the other man's leadership style; he had still missed shiro. they all had. though he doubted any of them missed shiro the way he and keith both had. it wasn't just because shiro was so good at keeping lance and keith from going to far with their banter...but it was just so more. he belonged there with them in a way lance didn't dare try to explain. becoming keith's right-hand man (literally and figuratively) has changed the relationship between himself and the previously red paladin. they actually worked really well together and lance of all people became the anchor that keith needed to keep him grounded. it didn't escape lance's notice that no one else could quite talk keith off a ledge when shiro was gone. things between himself and keith had grown and changed and lance was seeing things in a new light. then the black lion found shiro after a week of floating in space all alone.

how he survived was a miracle...let alone not having gone crazy. lance had never seen shiro look so beaten and he hadn't blamed shiro for just wanting to sleep after he had been fed and given some water. lance would be flat out lying if he said it didn't sting when shiro didn't seem to want to see anyone else except for keith. but the two of them had always had a very special relationship. once shiro had emerged from his rest...there was an awkward moment of trying to figure out their team. for some reason the black lion hadn't responded to shiro though...perhaps because it was just too soon. lance knew that someday shiro would command the black lion again-and that keith would want red back it was just a matter of time. lance also knew that piloting the blue lion meant a lot to allura and he couldn't take that away from her. so it would leave lance without a lion. without a place or. without a reason to continue to be apart of the team. all of these worries built up and lance swallowed his pride and went to keith. he would never just leave the team without consulting someone first and for some reason he didn't feel as comfortable bothering shiro with his feelings.

lance didn't really blame keith for his response. the red paladin wasn't always great with certain interactions. he even cracked a joke about it which was surprising and it had helped. but keith didn't say what lance really needed to hear. he didn't say "we need you, you idiot". he didn't say i need you, you idiot; a small voice in his mind reminded him. lance gave a groan as he rubbed his face as the castle landed. "i'm going to get some air!" he called as he stepped out. the planet they had landed on was beautiful with all sorts of crazy plants and insects flying around. lance followed some drooping trees that reminded him of weeping willows to what looked like a lagoon. he knew better then to get too close. but it reminded him of home and hot summers with his family. an ache in his chest formed. lance isn't someone who normally dwells on sad things. but he just felt so incredibly....heavy. he blinked as he squinted; making out a figure in the distance. he couldn't tell if it was one of the others or a stranger. "uhh...hiya!" he put on a smile that didn't quite come off as easy as it normally did. "looking good out there eh?" he winked and turned back to the lagoon. just because he wasn't quite feeling himself didn't mean he wouldn't try to make a pass at whomever was coming towards him.

this contains spoilers for the new season of voltron so please don't read it if you don't want to be spoiled. (though i may have mixed up some events lol i just have so many feels). have some angsty lance that just needs all the love (and maybe a punch in the shoulder for being dumb rofl). i did keep the board canon threesome stuff in there if you squint def lance is having feelings for his boys and he's like ????? about it. like shut up, dude. i wouldn't say no to one or both boys coming to tell lance that he's dumb and they love him too but this really is open to anyone! maybe a super positive person it's hard to have a sad face around? idk it's au, let's have some fun ehhh?!!

got your heart in a headlock.
When the Edifice starfighter comes to a landing, nothing but greenery surrounds the small ship. It seems to stretch for as far as the eye can see; flourishing with colorful plants and trees. Alien plants very different from the flora of Earth, from what he can tell. Mars doesn't quite have much flora or fauna. Out of the many planets the Galra had conquered, that they know of, this one seemed not to be effected yet. The Alliance leaders decided to send out team Edifice to scout the area for potential intel.

Leaning forward in his seat, black leather gloves tap at the large screen in front of him, where it shows a reading of the mapped out planet and their immediate vicinity. Speaking to his Navigator through the intercom, "It may be dangerous out there, Selene. I'll go check and you stay here, okay?" Helios takes a laser rifle with him, just in case, and exits the starfighter. He keeps his helmet on, but the oxygen readings on this planet appear to be normal enough. Selene updates him on the scans done by their computer and advises him to be careful. While he stays on the ship, he'll track Helios's progress.

As he makes headway through the drooping trees, his boots brush through thick, pink and green bramble. Large dragonflies with iridescent wings flit through the trees, sunlight sparkling off of their serpentine bodies. Both palms press against the sides of his helmet, disengaging the latches, and pulling it over his head. The breeze is warm and rich with the natural, herbal scent of flowers and plants. He inhales, and sighs out a deep breath. Such a peaceful-looking planet, it would be a shame if the Galra had already started to move in on it. Unfortunately, it's inevitable. They didn't see any signs of the aggressive alien race on their flight.

The trees begin to part, revealing an opening of sparkling water. A lagoon surrounded by willows and other colorful plants. This place is too beautiful to be conquered by such a bloodthirsty empire. With his helmet tucked snug under his arm, the Fighter idly runs his fingers through the disheveled black undercut. Selene would probably enjoy this scenery. Maybe this time, they were given the easiest mission of enjoying a beautiful planet. Across the body of water, he spots another silhouette stepping through the trees and approaching the lagoon. Helios keeps the rifle pointed at the ground and unthreatening, for now. If he's human, he is at least more trustworthy than the aliens. He can barely make out that the man is wearing a red uniform, beneath the shade of trees. As he approaches closer, it becomes easier to see. Huh. He looks like he's thinking about something; by himself, unarmed as far as Helios can see. But for all he knows, he has a different type of weapon to use. It's not long before the other takes notice, and reveals himself to be more than just a friendly face.

His steel eyes blink in shock, going wide for a moment. He's thankful his expression isn't too visible from a distance, but his cheeks start to flush just slightly, and he chuckles. Helios doesn't quite know if that was meant to be flirtatious at all, but the man's tone is harmless and friendly as far as he can tell. "Haha, it is looking nice out here. Nice spot to enjoy the scenery." He's not sure if the other is making small talk and wants to be left alone, but Helios is curious to know who he is and whether or not he's native to this planet. There's something just a little bit dejected in the way the man in the red uniform seems to gaze out at the water, as though gazing through it. I wonder if he's by himself. Stepping through the plants, Helios raises a hand in friendly greeting.

"All right if I join you?"


notes: so I don't know if you're familiar with starfighter, but I'll just put a little info here. In the starfighter canon, they are fighting a different type of alien race. I'll go ahead and say in this AU, they are just fighting the Galra. The organization is called the Alliance and they are a large organization of people from Earth and Mars. Their Base is on Mars. They have been fighting the Galra with their own battleships. teams of two people control each ship; with the Navigators being the ones who drive the ship and the Fighters being the ones who do the actual fighting and controlling of the weapons. The Alliance has undoubtedly heard of Voltron but they haven't decided whether to make allies with them or not. Anyway, that's my little tidbit of info for how Helios fits into this AU!

of course, lance was aware that being on a strange planet meant that he needed to be a little more on guard. while intel told them that there wasn’t any galra; that didn’t mean that the people living here would take too kindly towards them. but, just because he was on guard didn’t mean he had to be rude. after all, that could insite war too. as the other came closer, any guard lance had melted away at the freindly looking face that greeted him. he’s cute, lance thought with a crooked smile. a small part of him wanted to be childish...but a much larger part of him didn’t want to go too far. “yeah, it reminds me of home.” he wondered if this stranger was human; he certainly looked it...but so did keith and the red paladin had galra blood in him. lance figured it would be rude to just ask that though, so he bit that question down and flickered his eyes back to the swamp. “even the bugs look the same...from a distance.” it was the little things, really how the “dragonflys” actually breathed small brusts of fire, or how the “frogs” had four eyes.

lance knew that these creatues were probably called something else...but as he had no idea what, he went by how they reminded him. at the question, lance smiled gently now and nodded. “sure, as long as you won’t eat me or anything.” a small snort left his nose at his own joke, reaching out for helios’s hand and squeezed it; shaking it in greeting as the other male came to join him. “i’m lance by the way.” lance looked around, before gently and slowly lowering himself to the ground until he was seated. “so what brings you out here?” he tilted his head, glad for the distraction. he still had the worries and doubts that were eating at him; but they were pushed away in favor of making a new friend.
