(my first shallura fic~ i feel like i probably flubbed some stuff here, but i really wanted to post something so pls bear with me. i’m also fairly bad at titles soooo sorry for that too.)
In another life, Shiro thinks, this would be a quiet Sunday morning. The window would be open, the sky would be clear and blue, and Allura would be settled at her vanity across the room, doing what she is now.
But he lives in the reality he does, which means he’s inside of a castle that’s also a space ship, he’s one of the leaders of the universe’s greatest hope, and he’s inside the bedroom of the princess of a lost planet.
Highlights on a new member’s lesson on the Restoration:
So I attended my ward’s sister missionaries as they taught a new brother a refresher lesson on the Restoration, and had him teach it instead and omg it was amazing.
-John (that’s his name) stood by a rolling chair, began talking and immediately expressed feeling like a missionary.
-one of the sisters gave him her spare name-tag to wear to make it official as he taught XD
-John begins to talk about Joseph Smith having to walk through the woods to find a place to pray at and pushes/rolls on the chair out the door.
-I turn to the missionaries and I’m like “ welp, you lost him there he goes XD”
-he comes back and motions us to follow.
-so here we are, walking down the hallways of the church, John talking about Joseph walking all this way to find a good spot (still pushing the chair?) and one sister is like “omg what is this but okay go for it” and the other who has only been out a few weeks is also happily perplexed.
-He finds the lights won’t come on in the rec room and is like “Oh no this is too dark Joseph was in the place of lights”
-I said before I could stop myself “Las Vegas..???XD”
-John, still pushing his chair towards the chapel “No actually, this was before Las Vegas was a thing.”
-We find the chapel has a lot of members still around from the priesthood meeting earlier so we turn around and go back to the family history room haha.
-In talking about God and Christ appearing to Joseph Smith in the Sacred Grove, he paraphrased God’s introduction as follows: “Hey yeah, this is my Son, he’s super cool, you may have heard of him? His name is Jesus.”
-He talked about how the guy who was now an angel came to Joseph to reveal about the Book of Mormon. And his name was (John pauses ever so slightly here lol) “Macaroni” ie. Moroni XD
-He also paraphrased Joseph when unearthing the Golden Plates: “Whoa! This is a heavy, gold book! The guy who wrote these mUST HAVE BEEN RIPPED!”
-Throwback to his previous lesson I attended where he talked about “That ripped guy in the painting praying” ie. Moroni lol
-His friends came back with food and had stayed for the last half of the lesson (they were already members) and they encourage him and talk about reading his scriptures with him over the phone and having “family prayer” and this is PRECIOUS coming from like, muscular 20-something guys. Supporting their bro in the Gospel :’)
Book of BROman
-Talking about his scripture reading, the sisters were like “yeah there’s some good stuff coming up! And Enos, you’ve already read that–” John: “I don’t remember it” Sister: *still flipping through her scriptures, not missing a beat* “Well you can read it again” Me and John share a look and I start laughing, and John starts talking about how the sisters are always so salty and the sister is like “I didn’t mean it that way!!” So precious, all of them.
All in all, it was an amazing lesson. Like I know it looks like he’s not serious about it but you can tell and feel he is, and his prayers and serious answers are sooo sweet and genuine. And everyone is so chill and works with his personality so he gets the most out of the lesson and it was so awesome to just be there and be a part of that. ^^
The Results of S2 of Voltron on the Fandom so far/What We Got
Ok guys this will be spoiler heavy so don’t read if you aren’t caught up
Lance fans are mad at his lack of screentime
Allura fans are glad at her amazing screentime
Prety much everyone is annoyed that Hunk?? Seemed to only be into food??
L E T H I M E A T
Everyone is happy that Keith is happy and knows more about himself now
SPACE DAD ARE YOU ALIVE
Pidge was awesome this series she’s so much more comfortable with the paladins and herself and she’s so close to finding her family i’m just so proud of her.
Coran was great this season 10/10, would not change a thing
Shay’s cameo was the most important thing that has ever happened in history and honestly she’s the reason 2017 is going to not kill us all SHay you are perfect.
GALRA GUY WHO SAVED SHIRO WYD
Tbh all the Galra commanders seemed pretty great this season, even without Sendak we still got that cool short guy, that scary cyborg guy, I promise I’ll learn their names eventually.
PAUL BLART GALRA CART
And Keith…hasn’t got a galra dad?? Why did we all assume that?? I guess because Haggar was the only female Galra??
BUT WAIT HAGGAR WAS ALTEAN????
ALSO THACE DESERVED MORE HONESTLY
bye zarkon no one will miSS YOU
I’m only gonna cover the ones that I know a lot of people are behind so sorry I don’t address every ship
Suprisingly little Kallura activity so far, considering their interactions
Klancers being salty at how little we got BUT AT LEAST WE HAVE TWO BROS CHILLIN IN A HOT TUB
Hance are happy and pure like their ship is happy and pure
Sheith got a load of screentime so they’re happy
Sidenote-the klance and sheith seem to be fighting again. Sheith just want to ship it and ignore the problematic aspects of the ship, Klance seem to be bullying Sheith for enjoying their show. I’m kind of scared to discuss this in case either side send hate.
WHERE ARE THE PINING!CORAN FICS FOR HIM AND ALFOR GUYS COME ON DID YOU SEE HIS OUTFIT AND HIS SPEECH WHEN HE WAS WITH THE RED LION THAT BOY PROBABLY HAD A CRUSH BEFORE/AFTER THAT EMO PHASE

WHERE TO BEGIN
THE MALL EPISODE ALONE
LACE NARUTO RUNS
AND HE BOUGHT A COW
THE AMOUNT OF SHITPOSTING MATERIAL THIS SEASON HAS
NOT TO MENTION THE AMOUNT OF DABBING LANCE AND SHIRO ALONE HAD
AND CORAN’S ‘SLIPPERIES’

I THINK I HEARD LANCE SAY ‘YEA BOI’ AT ONE POINT
Paul Blart Mall Cop is the antagonist to an episode. Just him. No one else. He’s enough to chase 4 Paladins+Coran off an entire moon. A Meme on a space Swegway.
MERMAIDS DON’T NEED PANTS
Space Dad Lives 2k17 > Space Dad Lives 2k16
What Don’t we Know?:
So who was that guy Keith rescued? He never said anything?
What’s Prince Lotor gonna be like?
WHERE ARE PIDGE’S FAM HONESTLY
What happened with the past paladins all we know is there was a ‘dark past’ and Zarkon betrayed them
What’s the deal with Keith’s family? Are they Texan? Alien?
What happened to Lance and Hunk? I mean they aren’t hurt but where was their character development I did say we were salty
