Summary: [Sequel to Beneath the Waves] When the knock sounds on Keith’s door he’s anticipating it’s Allura come to kick him out as she’s made it perfectly clear how she feels about Galrans. But it’s… Lance? And he’s not there regarding Keith’s newfound heritage (of which he’s being far kinder and more understanding about than Keith had expected) but instead to ask him if he’d like to learn to swim and Keith tentatively agrees to a lesson. But with all the Galran stuff hanging over his head he forgot about the scars on his back. And now he’s frozen in the pool, heart roaring in his ears as that hidden abuse is revealed, and waiting for the axe to fall.
He silently rose from his bed and padded over to the door, flicking his hand at the lock and the door whooshing open to the overbright hall and Keith winced at the sudden light.
It wasn’t bright enough though that he didn’t see Lance’s face, which featured a pinched brow and a lip worried between his own teeth.
He didn’t look like a threat.
Keith stepped back to allow Lance into his darkened interior, only the small emergency lights in the corners on.
“Um, hey,” Lance smiled at him although it didn’t quite reach his eyes. “Just wanted to check in with, well,” Lance gave a flop of his hand as though that could somehow encompass the last twenty-four hours. “You… you doing okay?”
“I’m fine,” Keith said, resisting the urge to cross his arms in case it was taken as confrontational.
Lance hummed. “I didn’t ask that. I asked if you were okay and that,” Lance leaned slightly forward, “is different.”
And Keith was thrown into the memory of Lance assuring Keith of that very thing, of coaxing him to say it and how… how freeing it had been, the weight that had come off his chest.
But Keith couldn’t say that right now.
He wasn’t okay.
He really, really wasn’t.
He averted his eyes instead of answering.
“So,” and Lance’s voice was deceptively light, “that’d be an ‘I’m not okay,’ then in mullet speak?”
Keith didn’t know how to answer that either.
His throat felt tight and he clenched his hands back into fists to hide the tremble, unable to look up at Lance.
“Oh, Keith,” and Lance’s tone had gone back to too soft, too kind.
Keith wished he could blame the hallway lights still silhouetting Lance as the reason his eyes stung.

iatse still wants a deal. they want their demands met and continue working under more humane conditions. the strike authorization vote goes out oct 1 and is decided oct 4. THIS DOES’T MEAN THE STRIKE IS ON. it means they are now AUTHORIZED to call a strike if negotiations continue to go nowhere.
say the strike starts - i don’t think y’all realize how critical below the line workers are to media corporations’ bottom lines. they’re not calling for a boycott currently because in all fairness they might not need one. the strike alone will affect profits astronomically (no below the line workers=delayed/cancelled productions, lawsuits over broken contracts, etc.) don’t worry - you will definitely know if iatse has reached the point of calling a boycott, because rn that’s a last resort move.
what has the iatse actually called for? sign their petitions. donate to strike funds if able. please stop trying to turn this into another moral signifier as tumblr loves to do; rn boycotting the industry could cause more harm than good. yes new media contracts are a key point of iatse demands, but the strike is about ALL working conditions (including that of the studios, not just streaming services) - and no one is asking you to boycott an industry that has already struggled this year. the strike is to threaten executives specifically - the people who have actually made MORE money in 2020, on the backs of deeply unsafe working conditions for below the line workers. it is not meant to make it harder for iatse to reach a deal and ultimately make it harder for below the line workers to find work after after this is over. follow the lead of iatse rn, and offer your support in a way that’s actually been asked of you. also look to support your non-union friends (don’t know if you tv/film friends are non-union? ask! they’ll be more than happy to let you know), whose jobs are rn in the balance of whatever the union decides to do, and if a strike is called, have less job security if they strike in solidarity. jeopardizing the chance of reaching a deal would hurt everyone but especially non-union workers, so keep them in mind when you consider what your actions are here.
follow @ia_stories on insta for personal accounts of working conditions, follow @iatse for official updates.
here are trade articles written on the strike (do keep in mind, sometimes there will be slanted media coverage on this, so if you ever read something that sounds like the blame is being placed on iatse/below the line workers…get out of there):
#iatse strike#iatse #to clarify: if a boycott is ever called I will correct this #this is not made in support of any media corporation whatsoever #if you didn’t read the notes on my other post: i worked non-union. most of my friends are non-union because we can’t be #but the working conditions are the same and this strike is ultimately maybe more critical for non-union than anyone else #so it makes me upset when people just post things just to post things when literally no one has asked you to do that #if you already don’t pay for steaming and pirate then that’s all good this isn’t a protect the corporations post #I’m not asking you to pay for media I’m asking you not to call for media boycotts rn and to read what is actually being asked
Everyone when the Nintendo direct named Crisp Rat as the VA for Mario
#mario#mario movie#nintendo direct#nintendo#chris pratt#crisp rat #i still cannot believe #Nintendo is insanely protective of their ips to the point games have suffered cuz they dont want chars to have ANY originality per titles #like paper mario #and yet they cast a dude the entire internet was shitting on just last year for being a homophobe trumper to play their most iconic char? #when charles martinet is right there and has been playing him for decades? #dumb af
#i'm once again reaching a point where when i see others talk about dealing w certain things i've been through or starting to #go down that path i feel this urge to do everything i possibly can to stop them and make them turn back before it's too late #and it always hurts bc i know it's not my business but seeing people on that path or starting it and knowing where they could ultimately #end up is so incredibly painful i feel like. instantly protective #even if i don't know them well or at all #sigh. anyway #soph.txt
Visions really said. asserting yourself in the face of unimaginable loss. and choosing selflessness again and again when you're wondering if it really matters. and growing up without those who you thought would witness it. and making old choices in new contexts for new people. a dawn after a long and painful night.
#star wars#sw visions #sw visions spoilers #star wars visions #the village bride #my art #sw: here we have a jedi negotiating what it means to be a jedi in the face of unimaginable trauma and isolation #me. in the corner. in tears: a jedi negotiating what it means to be a jedi in the face of unimaginable trauma and isolation 🥺🥺 #you know how everyone has like. their one storyline that hits them every time #it's gotta be this. #rebels took me right out with kanan and this is similar #just!!!! #you grow up in a community and learn about justice and standing up for people and protecting them!!!! and then that community is shattered #and you're left holding the pieces wondering what's left. what you can do. what stills matters. and what it means to you #hhhhh i cry.
