and they're so similar

Keith and Lance are so similar and they don’t even know it.

From the way they sit (with their legs spread out lool)

To their facial expressions

To what they do on their free time (swimming lol)

(And also wanting to be fighter pilots at the Garrison??)

To what they wear (their swimsuits are so similar!!)

(And this is probably a long shot but white collar, white hoodie, similar random yellow stripe on their clothing except Lance’s is just a bit darker and on his arm?)

To their hair, look at their bean sprouts LOOL

To the way that they look at each other (kinda like “What the hell is going on in his head?”)

And bonus, those cute smiles that they give each other sometimes

“🎆🎆🎆”

waahhh I haven’t done watercolors in so long *0* I miss digital art ;v;;;;;

I think the weirdest thing about Black Paladin Keith to me is that I took the whole “jamming your bayard into the lion hole” thing to be the ultimate bonding a paladin can do with their lion. Like, it’s the lion’s way of saying, yes, I choose you, you’re my paladin, let’s do this. So in my mind Keith and Hunk’s places within the team are basically like locked in?? Keith moving to another lion would just be. Weird.

rey in TFA: preoccupied with the idea of family & a family who left her, deeply wants to be cared for and loved

adam talking about kylo“I feel like that character [Kylo] makes sense to me. The family dynamic and desperately wanting family to be part of his life but not getting it.”

me:

One neat thing I noticed while rewatching is that some of the paladins’ introductions in episode 1 coincide with their elements! Like:

The Yellow Lion’s element is Earth, and the first thing Hunk ever does onscreen is complain about being in the air and then work with metal. The fear of heights / motion sickness makes sense considering his affinity is with the ground, as does his talent for mechanics.

The first time we see Pidge, she’s working a communications unit. The Green Lion’s thing is Forests, and a big aspect of that is the idea of roots and connection with other living things (”we are all made up of the same cosmic dust”) and the first thing she does on screen is literally connect with others.

Red’s element is fire, and Keith’s introduction is literally him blowing something up and then punching some guys. Which. Speaks for itself honestly.

Weirdly, Shiro and Lance don’t seem to follow this trend. The first thing we see Shiro do is help Matt extract ice from Kerberos, and the first thing we see Lance do is fly the simulator, and neither introduction seems to be related to their given elements of air and water/ice respectively– in fact I’d say they seem swapped. I dunno if that means something, and maybe this observation is meaningless lmao, but it seems to hold up with the other three, which is interesting.
