Title: All the Things Money Can't Buy
Characters/Pairings: Shiro and Keith, Allura
Summary: Keith just needs a little help with the rent; Shiro's just a little lonely. This is just a brief, mutually beneficial financial arrangement, that's all. Really.
Notes: This is my entry for the Sheith Big Bang. I will be editing in the art shortly. I was lucky enough to be paired with two artists, Mishy of Mishy Draws and Liz of the comic Adrastus. 45,618 words; adult for smut.

If he were the melodramatic type, he'd be asking himself how he'd gotten himself into this mess, but Keith is too pragmatic for that. He knows exactly how he got to this place: it's called having a short temper and no patience for bullshit, which make for a really bad combination with an asshole boss who never liked him to begin with, even before Keith had called him out for playing favorites with the other clerks. )

Intimate verses

Look! No one saw the amazing
Burial of your one final dream.
Only the ungrateful and mean
Gave you a shoulder for weeping!
Get used to the cesspit that awaits!
Man, in this miserable land,
Surrounded by wild beasts, can only stand
By dishing out even stronger bites.
Take a match – light your cigarette!
The kiss, the friend, precedes the spit,
The hand caresses – before the stick.
If someone saves you from hell,
Stone the hand that treats you well,
Spit on those who try to kiss you!

Translated by Daniel Vianna. Extracted from here.

Mine are:

Witcher: Geralt, Emhyr, Ciri, Dandelion (duh)

Dragonriders of Pern: Menolly, Robinton (I totally want Menolly/Robinton NOT SORRY)
