—  HARRY HAVING THE CROWD SING HAPPY BIRTHDAY FOR ANNE

so my dad fixes hot tubs for a living which means he goes to people’s houses and has all these crazy stories, but he has some regular customers that really like him. he’s also basically a dog whisperer, so every customer’s dog loves him (even ones that are usually “dangerous”). recently, my family’s little poodle elphie died from breast cancer, and it really hit my dad hard. he doesn’t show his emotions outwardly but it’s been really tough for him lately. apparently, he went to this one regular customer’s house that has a big black lab, a pedigree dog that they use for breeding. usually the dog is really friendly with him, but this time he got there and the dog was howling and whimpering, and ran right up to him and started nuzzling into his lap. he started talking to her owner, and she talked about how the dog just had puppies, and because she’s a regular customer she knew my family had a dog, too, so she asked about elphie. my dad had to tell her that elphie just died, and he got a little choked up. as he talked about our dog, the lab noticed and started to nuzzle and push him, and him and the owner were really confused, so he let the dog push him. she ended up leading him to her newborn puppies and pushing him to hold them. the owner was really surprised because the dog wouldn’t even let HER near the puppies, let alone touch them. somehow this dog knew my dad was hurting for our dog and wanted to make him feel better by being with other dogs. i’ve just…never heard of anything so pure in my life.

Red Paladin.

In season 3, episode 2, we see that keith has been accepted by the black lion.

he doesn’t want to pilot it.

however, take a look at this.

this symbolically represents the characters’ POVs on this matter.

hunk, allura, and pidge are all on one side, close together, with calm, somewhat happy, accepting expressions. then we have lance. he’s distressed as well.

we know that in the last episode he was very much against keith being the leader. he had always been jealous of keith throughout the other seasons as well.

so here’s where stuff gets crazy

this is the moment.

this is the moment lance realizes what he has to do.

this is the moment when lance’s attitude changes forever.

don’t believe me? guess what iconic lil thing happens right after this.

those two frames,

those significant two seconds

marked the moment lance accepted keith.

as both an ally, and a friend.
