Today is Day 3, and I’m feeling a bit tired and worn out in general, so I’m going to do a little bit of fanfiction. J This is based on Voltron, an 80s cartoon. It’s a little plot bunny that formed in my head earlier today which I’ll probably flesh out at some point! Just as a heads up, this is a little bit shorter than I would have liked to post… but the muses are beating me to death with this idea, and I didn’t want to post the whole thing here. I will be continuing this on fanfiction.net, and probably throughout here occasionally with snippits as they’re written. You can find me on fanfiction.net under Katalyna. Thank you 🙂
Her Highness, Princess Allura of Arus, looked on as the man and woman in front of her pledged to love and cherish one another. She smiled slightly as vows were said, her eyes tearing up as the man placed a ring on the woman’s finger. She let the tears fall as the woman reciprocated, placing a larger ring on the finger of the man.
One of her closest friends, Tsuyoshi “Hunk” Garrett, patted her on the back, tears in his eyes. “It’s ok, Princess, weddings make me cry too!” he whispered. She smiled a watery smile at him.
“Thanks.” She whispered. She felt the youngest member of their team, and another close friend, Darrell “Pidge” Stoker take her hand and squeeze it. She returned the squeeze and looked back up at the couple getting married, tears making their way down their face.
“I now present to you, Mr and Mrs Keith Kogane!” Her best friend and confidant, Commander of the Arusian Military and Voltron Force, turned to his bride and smiled brightly. He dipped her backwards at the waist, placing a lingering kiss on her lips. She blushed to the roots of her jet black hair, before turning around and smiling brightly at the congregation who were standing and cheering.
Allura smiled brightly, her own gloved hands applauding enthusiastically. The newly married couple made their way towards the doors at the back of the chapel, as the guests began to mingle. The last member of their team, Lieutentant Lance McClain, came over to where the trio were standing.
“Zoya certainly looked happy, didn’t she?” he commented, cudding his eyes towards Allura. She nodded.
“She did. It’s not every day that you get to marry the love of your life, is it?” she murmured, her voice hiding the wistfulness that tried to escape.
“Bullshit, Ally. You know as well as I do that if Keith hadn’t accidentially knocked her up, she’d be screwing around with half the ground crews at the Academy.” Lance offered Allura his arm. “Allow me to escort you to the reception, Your Highness!” he said.
“Of course.” She gave him her arm, and the four of them made their way out of the chapel. She felt safe, with her friends around her. Safe enough that it was time to start thinking about the future again, and how to best protect her planet.
