This is the most wholesome thing I’ve ever freaking seen.

Lance,,,being insecure,,,,and the team helping,,,in subtle ways,,,in my,,,aesthetic,,,
anon,,,you get me,,,,
lance has no confidence in himself, thats a fact
but he hides it pretty well, all the jokes and bravado keep people off his tail
and the trick behind all that is that lance is observant.
like scarily so
so imagine when missions start to go wrong and lance does something behind everyones back that gets them back on track
or when they’re having team meetings, he wil mention something thats really off hand that no one really thinks about till later because omg it makes so much sense. and im talking wayyy later, to the point wehre its not relevant anymore
but its doesnt stop there
sometimes pidge will be sleeping in an odd place and lance will bring her a blanket so she doesnt get cold
he also saves the stuff on her laptop and turns it off or idles it for later
hunk will misplace something in the kitchen and lance sometimes walks in and ‘magically’ finds it for him
lance just knows where everything is
when coran is doing maintenance on the castle, lance likes to appear and give him a helping hand
shiro has a hard time sleeping and lance found a soothing body wash for shiro specifically that helps him calm down some, enough to sleep more than he does
(you cant tell me that lance doesnt know where all the cosmetic stuff is in the castle, the boy has a nose for it i swear)
keith is the training room gremlin and when kes been at it too much, lance will come in and basically screw up keiths groove enough to get him out of there
usually takes 3 or 4 challenges before keith has had enough and storms out
lance’s feelings arent hurt by it, he just wants keith to take care of himself ok?
allura can work herself to the bone too so when shes in the control room, lance likes to come by and start talking about earth
the similarities draw allura out of her head and start to open up to lance about altea
and by the end of the convo, allura is yawning and lance tells her to go to bed. works like a charm
and i like to think it takes a really long time for anyone to realize that lance has been keeping them together this whole time
like when conversations get to heated, he will make a joke at his expense and it diffuses the situation
or he will say just the right thing to kickstart a really great plan
all the while not taking any credit for it
like my dudes, lance cares so fucking much and no one notices, but hes completely okay with it since the team is all together and he can see his own family in them
he doesnt want to lose that
so he sticks to being the Middle Child™ and accepts being looked over as long as team voltron is together
Blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD, And whose hope is the LORD. For he shall be like a tree planted by the waters, Which spreads out its roots by the river, And will not fear when heat comes; But its leaf will be green, And will not be anxious in the year of drought, Nor will cease from yielding fruit.
