Day 1: favourite Keith moment
@keithsbirthday -this is so difficult to decide oh my gosh. Because literally every Keith moment is amazing. But @macnkeef and I were talking earlier this week about this little moment once again we hadn’t brought it up for a while and I just feel it might be an under-appreciated gem so IM GOING FOR SOMETHING SMALL BUT REALLY ENDEARING OKAY:
SORRY TO INTERRUPT. listeN he didn’t need to apologise but he did. and just… idk the way steven acts this is so….. i just love it. i can’t even explain fully what it is but he’s so serious about it and also just. POLITE. and considerate to Hunk’s joke. It’s great.
and it also reminds me so much of THIS:
Amazing. But about this scene in particular I just… love that he apologises for interrupting like. Hunk is in the middle of telling a joke. It’s clearly a bit of goofing off a little here whilst waiting for the intel to download:
LOL LANCE. Keith is also a lot more conversational with the team in this episode when they’re in the hub before he goes to do the Sneak Sneak and investigate being Sneaky. some of my favourite keith dialogue Things in terms slang and speech patterns is in this episode tbh. LMAO. just….. I just love 1.10? Honestly, it’s also one of my favourite episodes for Keith expressions there are genuinely some of the greatest Keith expressions I’ve ever seen in 1.10. FOR EXAMPLE:
so yea i really like this episode in general for many reasons. but mostly bc it manages to pack in all the things about Keith we often are accustomed to and see a lot on screen especially in S1, like searching for answers and getting all the information, his fighting style, focusing on the mission and task at hand, asking good questions about a plan, and never sugarcoating what he’s saying.
But then also…. 1.10 just reminds me so much of how wonderfully dorky this guy can be too. like. I adore him so much. thIS is one of those “cool” moments all over again. And he really is so endearingly Good and Lovely. WHAT A GOOD EGG. This just makes me smile so much. The fact he so sincerely apologises a conversation that is really trivial in the grand scheme of the mission.
it really shows just how context and what is going on with Keith internally and around him in the moment affects his behaviours sometimes because take this comparison when the team are goofing off a little whilst figuring out what to do next:
Yeah. Situation and what’s going on in the PRESENT makes all the difference on many occasions. And bOI by 2x08 are Things going on for Keith. He’s so deeply rooted in the Present and Now.
ANYWAY. I love this Keith moment in 1.10 so much. so for today, it’s going down as a favourite bc it truly is 8) .
