LISTEN GUYS

Concept: a small child whose imaginary friend is Superman. He talks to “Superman” all the time, completely unaware that Clark can in fact hear everything he’s saying. The child and associated adults are infinitely surprised when reply letters from Superman start appearing in their mailbox

I honestly just?? Don’t understand this sentiment in fanon that Shiro doesn’t give a damn about Lance?? Like, I really don’t?? When Lance gets knocked unconscious, Shiro is the first one rushing over, is the one who picks him up and holds him and takes care of him. How is that someone who doesn’t care?

And he meant what he said about protecting his teammate. Shiro sets Lane down somewhere where he think’s he’ll be safe before he goes off to fight Sendak. 

And when the galra use Lance against him, he freezes–he doesn’t dare risk Lance’s safety, even though it costs him the fight. Even though it means getting captured again, and he’s already endured that hell for a year. Even though he’s only just gotten away. He’s lost his crew once already, and he’s not about to let that happen again 

Yes, Lance was clearly hurt bad. He was unconscious for two episodes and needed a cryopod. But you can’t tell me that Shiro wasn’t hurting also, that he wasn’t tortured–and that he wasn’t willing to risk being recaptured again just to keep Lance safe. That doesn’t strike me as someone who’s a bad leader or doesn’t care about their team. And even while Sendak is tormenting him, the safety of his team is still Shiro’s top priority 

And I don’t understand this notion that Shiro doesn’t think Lance is capable or a skilled paladin either because??? When the guard at Betra Traz grabs Slav, Shiro was just ready to accept that they’d lost. But Lance was like “No!! I’ve got this!” And Shiro doesn’t tell him he’s being ridiculous, he let’s Lance take a breath and steady himself and take that shot. He trusts that Lance can make it. And honestly, that makes a lot of sense. Because when Lance managed to wake up from a coma and hit Sendak with perfect accuracy, Shiro was right there to see it. He’s known for a while now that Lance is a damn good shot 

And in Beta Traz, he makes sure that Lance knows it 

Hospital Starters
  • [ Requested by Anon about a week ago. Warnings for blood, suicidal thoughts, and medical stuff. Thanks! : ]
  • "Hey, you're awake!"
  • "Where am I?"
  • "You hit your head. There was so much blood that I got scared."
  • "Don't try to get up. You're safe here."
  • "I hate this place..."
  • "How could you do this to yourself?"
  • "The world didn't give me a choice, and now, I'm suffering even more!"
  • "You really came..."
  • "I told you I would be here when you woke up."
  • "How many tests did they do on you?"
  • "If I wasn't drugged up, I could tell you the names of every test they do in this place."
  • "When are they going to let you leave?"
  • "They said that I'll be here for a few days. Maybe a week."
  • "What happened to you? You have so many things sticking out of you."
  • "That's what happens when you're dying."
  • "It's probably time to change those bandages..."
  • "You aren't in pain, are you?"
  • "You were in an accident. You almost didn't make it."
  • "That would explain why I feel terrible."
  • "I thought you were dead..."
  • "I'm not dead, am I?"
  • "I didn't know it was this bad..."
  • "I may not live much longer..."
  • "I'm dying..."
  • "You can't die! There has to be something they can do!"
  • "I'm too far gone for any surgery to fix me."
  • "I want you to know that I'll miss you most."
  • "Don't say that! I don't like it when you talk like this..."
  • "I just want it to happen so I don't have to think about it all the time."
  • "I wanted to say goodbye to you one more time."
  • "If you don't get some sleep, I'm going to hit this button and tell a nurse you're bothering me."
  • "Don't abuse that call button!"
  • "You know that button only works every five seconds, right?"
  • "Maybe if I push it hard enough, more will come out."
  • "I get to come home today."
  • "Did you fill out the release forms yet?"
  • "They hooked me up with a bunch of prescriptions. I'm gonna be high as a kite."
