don’t wanna walk alone (or run away)


Writing the Alien Bird Baby Wedding fic brought me so much joy and I’ve grown so fond of that AU.

This one won’t leave my head – I just needed to write a follow-up and pay a short visit to other characters.

If you haven’t read the first one, that’s fine! Here’s the quick rundown: there is no Voltron, Altea and Daibazaal are cool. Shiro is Galra, Keith is part-Galra, both are members of the BoM, which is Daibazaal’s intelligence and humanitarian relief organization. Krolia and Allura are Ambassadors for the Coalition. Krolia is poly and is with both Tex and Kolivan. Keith grew up with his parents and the Blades and his friends. It’s a happy AU. Last time, Keith and Shiro babysat baby bird aliens and got playgroud-married at their behest – but it turns out that’s a legally binding thing. Thats all, you’re set! Go go!

“How did you know about it anyway?”
“Know about what?”
“About… us? Me and Keith?”
“What?” Vrek chuckles, like Shiro just made a joke. “Well, the same way everyone knew, I guess?”

With a swipe of his hand, Keith brings up a new projection: a ship and some coordinates. “My friend’s nearby, and he’s inviting us over. Just for a meal. Then he says we can be on our way again. He just really likes cooking for friends. ”

“Oh.” he says, eyes wide. “I thought… It’s just-… It’s a family thing. I thought you were just letting me know.”

Keith shakes his head. “I want you to meet my dad, and my dad wants to meet you.”

“That’s… Lance McClain?” Shiro asks, slowly.

“The only.” Keith answers. “Is he everything you expected?”

“I go undercover for a deca-phoeb and when I get back, the love of my life is married to another Galra?!”

Of course it would happen eventually.

How did Shiro not see it coming?

“Your first imperial gala! I mean, it’s not even one of the big ones, but still! Are you nervous?”

“They’ll like me, right? I know I’m not that great, but I’m… okay. Right?”

“Keith. Your picture’s already framed and put up alongside the family portraits. They adore you.”
