honestly, the fandom seems spilt on lancelot. one half saying to stop shipping it because its problematic, the other half literally not giving a fuck. im sitting here genuinely curious and interested. im not saying i ship it and i want it to be canon, i think that it has a lot of potential. i mean, anything can happen with lotor’s character.
i want lotor to be evil and manipulative. i want lotor to be genuinely horrible and screw up everything the paladins have worked hard on. i want him to spilt the team up and i want him to get into their minds. i want him to break the characters and push them to their limits. i want him to flush out their traits and have them grow. i want him to be one of the most horrific and well written antagonist of a kid’s cartoon show.
however, in the lance portion of this, i want lance to grow as well. perhaps lotor offers him to join their side as many of the other theories have already said. i want lance to fall prey to lotor’s praise and shower of appreciation. i want lance to know that this is wrong, he shouldnt do this, but he is. i want lance to make the decision to leave the team and join lotor leaving them hurt and broken in his wake. i want to see keith’s heart shatters as lance walks away from the team, away from him.
i want tHE ANGST.
i want lance to secretly be working with allura in a plot to overthrow lotor from the inside. i want lotor and lance dance around each other in a deadly game, neither of them knowing what the other is doing. both of them think the other one has really fallen for them. (maybe even sometimes the line between whats fake and real get blurred…) i want lance to be undercover for months. the team losing complete hope over him after they meet and fight. i want them to fight, and pidge and hunk crying thinking they truly lost lance to the other side. i want keith to watch as lance kisses lotor and being pissed that lance left. that he let him go.
finally, i want lance to show his true colors when the other paladins think they have lost and lotor won. i want lance to turn on lotor the only think between them is his bayard. i want lance to kICK SOME ASS.
and then, after all of that, i want the paladins to bE PISSED THE FUCK OFF THAT LANCE AND ALLURA PLANNED ALL OF THIS SHIT AND MADE THEM THINK LANCE HAD GONE BAD
