The paladins free a planet from the Galra Empire and head down to discuss a diplomatic alliance. They have some down time while Allura and Coran are in extensive negotiations, so they take to the streets of a beautiful golden and pearly city. It’s so weird though, how everyone just assumes Pidge and Shiro are a couple. *Everyone*
Pidge isn’t sure what’s going on, so she grabs Lance’s hand and then asks the nearest Alien if they think she and Lance are dating. They laugh and say of course not, they’re siblings. Pidge is so confused.
Later, at the obligatory ball/gala/celebration party, Pidge and Shiro “accidentally” manage to dance with each other and they discuss what’s been going on. It feels like all eyes are on them.
It’s only when they talk to Allura that they realize that their new alien allies are empaths. They just assumed the two were together because of their extremely deep love for each other.
