In elementary school he was labelled as a ‘gifted’ child and he’s spent his entire adult life working his ass off to keep up the ruse.
He and Matt switch off on being the responsible one when they’re together.
On that note, 70% of Shiro’s common sense goes out the window the moment he’s in the same room as Matt.
Conversely, Shiro becomes 120% more responsible when he’s in the same room as Keith.
When the three of them are all together, Shiro’s number one priority becomes keeping Keith alive, while Matt is focused on keeping Shiro alive.
Shiro basically took every mistake he ever made with Keith (which was a lot) and learned from them just in time for him to become a big brother to Pidge.
A lot of people assume Shiro is just another Garrison-jock but he’s surprisingly well-versed in a lot of science and technology due to all the time he’s spent around the Holts.
When he was a student, Shiro owned a pair of weed socks and he always wore them whenever he had an important flight/flight test because they gave him +10 confidence.
He also did this as an instructor.
Shiro probably should start wearing glasses, but he’s been making fun of Matt for so long (Shiro: (Matt voice) my glasses!! I can’t see without my glasses!! Matt: Haha, let’s see where you’ll be in twenty years, asshole) that he now stubbornly refuses to get a pair. His eyesight is still okay, but he refuses to acknowledge the inevitable.
Important Screenshots From The New Voltron S4 Trailer
and my interpretations/analysis
Where is Keith?
Seriously, where is he? Are they actually making plans and working without him?? Is he off sulking somewhere or is he on a mission by himself?
Lance is adorable. Nuff said.
ROLO AND NYMA HAVE RETURNED. Also: just Hunk and Pidge here, so they’ve split up to do missions again? Is the other pairing Lance and Keith..? >.>
It kind of looks like the Marmorites are mourning someone here, no? But the only other named member we know is Kolivan? Unless that’s meant to be Keith in the suit there holding his blade, hence why he was missing from the group earlier…? It does look a bit buff to be him though so maybe I’m reading into this too much haha.
Lotor is only walking with Narti here - Kova is keeping a close eye on him for Haggar?
Multiple rebel ships here being shot at - and this is on the line “with their help”, so I think it’s safe to assume the coalition is fighting back.
They do form Voltron at a ‘join the coalition’ show, so Keith is in fact there for at least one.
I still believe that Lotor is attacking Narti and/or Kova in this clip, given the shocked expressions on the other generals’ faces.
The camera tracks this one rebel ship in particular - so is this Rolo and Nyma, or perhaps Matt’s band of rebel fighters we’re seeing here?
Pidge alone off on her mission to save Matt, surely.
A Black Lion roar again? Is.. the real Shiro back? Or is somebody.. else.. flying the Black Lion??
I’m not really sure what to make of these two other than Acxa seems anxious to see Lotor’s response at first, but then she looks off to the side (still pretty worried, it looks) and begins to move her mouth in order to say something - to shout an order maybe. Is Voltron taking their ship? Idk
Well Keith is definitely in Black here - and he still wants to take Lotor fucking down lmaoo
The castle’s particle barrier is damaged. “We have them right where we want them.” It’s.. not a good sign.
I thought Red was missing from this shot and I was about to scream whERE TF IS LANCE but -
- OH, nope, nope he’s okay, he was just behind Black, it’s fine… It’s not like I’m deathly worried about him or anything.
Lotor is in the ship he built from the meteor instead of Narti or Acxa?
Space mall !!!!!!
Aaand we still do not know who Lance is blushing at here. But I almost want to assume that it could be Nyma now that we know she’s back?? That could be hers and Rolo’s ship in the background there? Idk, still hoping it’s Keith lol
