The wonderful @amethystpath-writes wanted a continuation so here it is! :D
This is a continuation of- Behind The Mask
This has a continuation- Winner
Villain walked into class the next day and looked around. There she was. Hero. In her usual spot. Villain almost laughed to himself as he went and sat down at his desk. Hero sat one row away from him, exactly one seat separating them from being side by side. She had been right there all this time and he had had no idea.
Villain wondered what he should do now that he knew who Hero was. It was something he had always wanted to find out but now what was he supposed to do? Get close to her? Get her to trust him? Make friends with Hero? He corrected himself mid thought. Ava, not Hero. Here she was just Ava, there was no hero and no villain. They were classmates and just knew each other’s names. They weren’t exactly what you could call friends. Villain pondered on what he could do to change that.
When he drew a blank, he pushed those thoughts away. They just had to get through the school day for now. He brought out his books and focused on school since the bell rang signalling the start of the lesson.
After a very normal school day, instead of packing up and leaving, Villain headed to the basketball court. There were try-outs taking place today for the school team. He loved playing sports so as he was hurrying over, he was pleasantly surprised to see Ava heading in the same direction. Well there was his chance. He smiled at her and Ava acknowledged it with a wave. He walked over to her.
“I had no idea you liked to play basketball.”
Ava looked up with a smile. “Then again, I seem like a very quiet girl who just sits around the whole day in class don’t I? but believe it or not, this is the real me.”
Villain laughed and held out his hand “Well then, lets get to know each other better, shall we?”
Ava took his offered hand and with a firm handshake smiled “Alright then.”
Villain smiled to himself This was so much fun. She was so unsuspecting. This was going to be easy.
They both were the only ones from their class who had turned up for the try-outs so they were grouped together.
They were made to run laps, sprint, play one on one with each other, tested on dribbling skills, passing skills, shoot from different areas of the court. The normal baskets, three pointer and free throws while the coaches were trying to judge who to choose.
In the end after thoroughly testing the fitness and the basic basketball skills everyone present had, it was time for the selection. The coach called their names one by one. Villain as well as Ava made it. Villain smiled with satisfaction. He thought they both had done quite well even if he did say so himself.
The coach sent off the remaining ones who weren’t chosen and turned to look around at his newly formed team. He smiled at them. “Are you ready to be the best team ever?”
“YES!” they all cheered.
“Alright then,” he smiled. “We did enough for today. See you guys here tomorrow at the same time for your daily practice sessions! For now, go get to know each other better since you all will be a team from now on.”
They all headed over to where the water bottles had been kept for them and as Villain was heading over, he wondered How strange was fate? He probably would have made friends with Ava anyway since she would be on the same team but now, knowing she was Hero, it just felt different for some reason. Should he tell her now? That he was Villain. He scoffed. No there was no fun in that, she probably wouldn’t talk to him again if he did that. Besides, it wasn’t really lying to her was it? Since all he had done was not tell her he was Villain. Fair enough, no one goes around announcing their secret identity. Right now he was just Nico and not Villain.
His thoughts were broken when he heard Ava call him. He looked up and saw that having reached the stand earlier, she was tossing a water bottle to him.
He decided not to worry about anything and just be himself.
“Why, thank you!” he said as he caught the bottle with a smile as he reached the stand and looked at her. “We made it Nico! We’re in the team!”
“Yes, yes we are,” he replied with a grin.
As they walked off in the golden evening sunlight to meet and get to know the rest of their team, Villain smiled to himself, he had a new friend. Ava, his teammate.

Pre voltron/s1 voltron Lance wishes to be what Five!Lance is (a deadly fighter, an excellent pilot, smarter, sharper, tougher, "not a seventh wheel) while Five! Lance sees his younger self and sees what he has lost
Definitely. To some extent s1!Lance is envious of what Five!Lance is. He's tougher, a bloody good pilot, not even a goofball, and smarter. To him, Five!Lance has it all, and if s1!Lance was even a little bit like him, there’s no way he would be a seventh wheel. It’s almost tragic that he doesn’t realise that Five!Lance is the way he is because of years of trauma. He’s a better pilot, because he the war kept on calling him back and he needed to be the best. He’s smarter and not a goofball anymore because if he wasn’t he’d be dead long ago. He’s tougher, because most of his friends died and there was nothing he could have done to save them. To be like Five!Lance would destroy someone. But s1!Lance doesn’t see that part. He just wants to be better so that he can fit in, to at least be more useful to the team and not an extra wheel.
Five!Lance, on the other hand, is envious for the complete opposite. He thinks back to when he was bright and happy and had a life that wasn’t completely fucked. He sees how much he’s lost, most of all his innocence and childhood. What would he have been like if he wasn’t chosen to pilot a lion? Or what would he have been like, if the war ended differently? Every time Five!Lance looks at s1!lance, it’s like he sees a ghost.
