Rook has his hands on Bishop’s shoulders and Bishop is giving not one but two thumbs up. They don’t need to act tough, they don’t need to be serious, they can finally be their silly, goofy selves. And they are loving it.
2. They’re on the tv.
Not only have they created a better life for themselves, they’ve become successful enough to appear on television. They aren’t trying to hide away, they are putting themselves out for the world to see.
3. They’re talking into a microphone.
After spending years being ignored and mistreated, their voices are finally being heard, probably by thousands of people. I’m sure they have lots to say.
4. They are dressed like Layton and Luke.
Rook and Bishop don’t need to wear their uniforms anymore, they can dress however they want. The fact they’re choosing to dress like Layton and Luke suggests that they admire them and aspire to be like them.
5. Layton is watching them.
Hershel was the one to help convince the pair to leave Targent for a better life. I’m sure he’s very proud to see how successful they’ve become. In turn, I’m sure Rook and Bishop would be honored that he’s watching them.
6. Their relationship has blossomed.
After they left Targent, Rook and Bishop did not have to stay together. The fact that they chose to shows how much they care about each other. They’re no longer just work partners, they’ve become best friends and are happy just being together. *cough*gay*cough*
7. They’re still wearing sunglasses.
They probably think they’re being hip and cool and down with the teens. They’re not. They’re dorky bird dads and I love them to death.
venom may have been invented as an anti-gay but what The Straights didn’t realize is that by making a Big Slimy Creature with gay undertones, they automatically gave the Gays the best goddamn slime-goblin to obsess over
fanart for @fishwrites‘s Watercast Klance au!! It is absolutely one of the best pieces of writing I’ve ever read and I highly recommend it, even for those who haven’t watched Voltron You can read it on AO3 here
