seeing how deeply jay’s passing has affected so many people, so many fans, who didn’t have the opportunity to know her personally just goes to show how incredibly influential and prominent she’s been in the boys’ lives and our lives as a result and how much good she’s done in this world, directly and indirectly 💞
it’s no secret: i love, love!!! i love the love between the characters we ship! i love the love we have for our fandoms! and i love the love we share between each other in our circles! (^ O ^) but it’s not all hearts and sparkles all the time! (= v =);; we aren’t always as good to ourselves, each other, or our communities as we could be… SO! (-^ w ^-) i figured, what better time than Valentines Day to spread a little bit of positivity and love around!!! the idea is very simple ~ spread the love! no matter what fandom you’re in, what you ship, or who you share your Tumblr space with! (O w O) and that includes yourself! just reblog this post and add three parts to it:
PART ONE:LOVE YOURSELF! share something you really love about yourself! it can be anythings! so long as it’s positive! <3
PART TWO:LOVE OTHERS! @ someone (or many someones) on Tumblr and tell them why you love them! <3
PART THREE:LOVE YOUR FANDOM! share what it is you love about your OTP! (or OTPs! OT3s! or broTPs! whatever! XD) <3
there are a lot of negatives in the world right now, so it can’t hurt to take a moment and remember all the REALLY AWESOME stuff and AMAZING people that we’re lucky to have in our lives! (-^ O ^-)
On February 1st i will be randomly selecting one person who has reblogged this post and added the three parts above; that person will receive a full color drawing of the pairing of their choice - either for themselves or for someone special - that will then be posted on Valentines Day! <3
all the best to everyone, whether you take part or not! (^ ____^) i hope maybe this can inspire you to even just take a moment and say “i love you” to someone who you might not otherwise tell! (o w o) a very happy Valentines Day to you all! and may you always have love in your lives! *HUGS*
Screenshots from episodes 4 and 5. Things that are important here: the use of the words team and family.
Keith doesn’t want Pidge to leave the team, but he doesn’t specifically mention the team. He mentions people’s families, which is what Pidge was worried about. No doubt he was attempting to make her reconsider by using a word she was inherently interested in and was sensitive to. Others have mentioned before how ironic/nice is is of Keith to say that specifically, considering he’s an orphan and how the reason he wants Pidge to stay is because she, along with the others, are his family now.
It’s actually Shiro who uses the word team. He tells Keith that people can’t be forced into the team, they must want to stay. He’s not talking about family (specifically), but about the team of paladins they have formed.
Then cut to episode 5 and after they’ve dealt with Sendak, it’s Shiro who starts saying he can’t help but feel like Pidge was meant to be part of the team, but won’t stop her if she wants to leave. That’s when Pidge recalls her father’s words that his team was like family. Pidge is the first person to associate the two words, and Keith immediately says “welcome back to the team”, a clear call back to Shiro’s words back in episode 4 about how a team/family can’t be forced.
