It’s no small feat. It took a leader hiding pain and exhaustion under a careless laugh, an artist brimming with inspiration despite his tears, a friend with a big heart and warm hands to take away the difficult times; a dreamer with ambition and hope to inspire confidence, and an intelligent soul with the wisdom to make the tough decisions in a midst of awe and confusion, to paint this canvas. Here is to five incredible men who work so hard to fill the voids in our hearts with holes in their own. Here is to five brave men who stand to fight the odds again. Here is to Highlight.
This is for the amazing @ackerchou who has graced us with Season 2 Voltron Actor!AU headcannons and I LOVED THEM ALL. I’m writing dancing Lance and kiddie Coran and Allura next. Watch me. Pls check them out because I wanna write a fic for all of them. And because she is awesome and made me feel better on a day I felt bad. There’s aren’t many spoilers for season 2 in this fic but just in case it is tagged. I hope you enjoy it!
was slightly ashamed to admit that he hadn’t watched the original Voltron
before trying out for a part in the new series. In fact, he sort of, kinda, had
never even heard of Voltron before until his first day on set as a Galra stunt
double. That is until there was a surprise visit from the original cast from
the 80’s Voltron series.
was only slightly mortified that he was the only one who didn’t know who they
since he had thought that Akira was an older stunt double and he had nearly
flipped Akira on his shoulder when the man surprised him.
after all this, Lance still wouldn’t stop laughing.
course he had a video of Keith nearly flipping over the original leader of Voltron who was at least twice Keith’s age (but damn
did he still look good) and very well
known in the world of Voltron. The video even had Keith apologizing over and
over to an amused Akira, while everyone stood around staring.
would remember this next time Lance wanted something.
he was hanging back in the background while the old cast of Voltron took a tour
of the new set to see how far Voltron had come. There was awe and admiration
thrown left and right from both the cast of the 80s and the cast of the 2010s.
It was a strange sight to see the different cast members who played the
paladins together, each very different in their own way and yet so perfect for
each character they played.
I feel like He Tian would dress like a total pimp later while Guanshan stays with his bomber jackets or warm winter jackets (bought by He Tian and the devil personified refuses to take anything for it in return *cough* Maybe Momo’s soul, but that’s a different story *laughs*)
I finally got to meet one of my absolute fave human beings in the entire world and he was the sweetest and most beautiful sunshine ever
I honestly love this man more than anything and to finally meet him irl was just unbelievably emotional, I don’t think it’s completely sunk in yet
(please excuse my face and my hair, i was NOT prepared for meeting the most beautiful person to ever walk this earth today so I look like a complete mess, but that’s okay because I have finally met Gregor and I couldn’t be happier)
