cool headed

Could I get polyamorous head canons for 2p!Japan x fem!s/o x 2p!Italy or maybe a scenario?

*You poor soul.

*their personalities would clash so there would be so many arguments and stuff.

*kuro is cool headed and sadistic, into physical torture

*Luciano is hot headed and even more sadistic, into mental torture

*you’re screwed

*but it might be nice at times. Luci is a big romantic when there’s no one else around.

*Kuro is quiet but will pamper you if you’re a good person. (I didnt want to put in pronouns)

the bayard is the paladin is the lion: a season 3 prediction

Alternatively titled: Watch This Child Jeopardize Her GPA in Real Time As She Ignores Her Midterms to Write Yet Another Fucking Meta

The lovely @littleblackchats already wrote an awesome post about the symbolism of the bayards for each of the characters in Voltron. But I was wondering: could we take it a step further and use the weapons - and what they say symbolically about the paladins wielding them - to make an informed guess about who’s going to end up in what lion next season?

(even if the answer to that question is no, i’m already writing this so whatever)

Since Allura, Keith, and Lance are the most likely to be swapped into new lions (or, in Allura’s case, to be put into a lion for the first time), I thought it’d be cool to take a look at what the weapons each of them wields says about their personalities, and whether that can give us hints as to who’s gonna be the Black Paladin next season while Shiro’s gone.

Alright, so in episode 1, Allura tells us that a lion’s quintessence is mirrored in its paladin, and that the paladin shapes the bayard. So lion = paladin = bayard. The lion and paladin should be similar in personalty, and the bayard should be compatible to the paladin’s style of fighting and personality as well. This is shown really well in Hunk and Pidge: Pidge’s weapon is small (like her), electric (reflecting her interest in computers), and made for precision (Pidge is more interested in finding clever solutions than just brute-forcing problems), while Hunk’s is big (just like him), long-range (reflecting his wish to stay distanced from conflict), and packs a punch (Hunk is the strongest character on the team, after all).

So the weapons tell us something about the personalities of the ones using them. But what can their respective weapons tell us about Keith, Lance, and Allura?

Shiro Meta: “I want you to lead Voltron”

So a lot of people have been talking about why Shiro chose Keith to lead Voltron if anything happened to him. I’ve seen this attributed to Shiro’s favouritism or bias towards Keith, but I have another take on things: Shiro’s choice of Keith as his successor reflects his own insecurities about his suitability as leader.

We know Shiro harbours serious doubts about his ability to lead Voltron. In 1x09 Shiro hears Sendak’s voice in his head telling him “Did you really think a monster like you could be a Voltron Paladin?” And in 2x03 when Allura tells him: “You are the Black Paladin now, not Zarkon,” Shiro disagrees: “Yeah, well - the Black Lion may have a different take on the matter.”

See this? This is the face of a man who fully expects to get spat out of his Lion again at any moment. (If you want a really long and interesting meta about Shiro’s relationship with the Black Lion following the S1 finale, read {it’s all about trust} by @headspacedad)

Coming out of that battle with Zarkon in 1x11, Shiro no longer knows if the Black Lion trusts him, or if he can trust her. And it’s easy to see why: the Black Lion forcibly ejected him from the cockpit in the middle of battle. He thought they’d bonded; now it seems like they haven’t.

{relationship status: IT’S COMPLICATED}

But his insecurities go deeper than that: during that climactic battle at the end of season 1, not only was Shiro ejected from his own Lion, he also had a full-blown panic attack onboard the Galra ship and had to be rescued by Hunk and Allura. Allura - the person he’d come to rescue in the first place - ended up saving him.

Right after this battle, an injured Shiro crash-lands on an alien planet and tells Keith: “If I don’t make it out of here - I want you to lead Voltron.” And it’s not just because he’s injured. He thinks he’s failed as a leader. And in that moment, he probably fully expects the Black Lion to reject him again. Or maybe he expects Allura to take him aside and just quietly tell him “Look, it’s not working out. We need to pick someone else as the Black Paladin.” Because how can you lead Voltron if you can’t even keep control of your own Lion? How can you lead Voltron if you panic in the middle of battle?

For the record: I think Shiro is DEAD WRONG and he’s an amazing leader and I have so many feelings about how great Shiro is and what it means to see a mentally ill character in a leadership role but I DIGRESS. The point is: Shiro spends much of season 2 battling his own feelings of inadequacy about his position as Black Paladin.

Shiro’s line that “The Black Lion may have a different take on the matter” reflects his own belief that the Black Lion doesn’t want him as a Paladin. He thinks she’d rather have someone else - someone who’s less of a walking disaster. And again: I really don’t think she does, and I have SO MANY THOUGHTS about this that I will probably write up at some point, but that’s not the point. The point is Shiro firmly believes that he’s not good enough to be the Black Paladin, and that the Black Lion would rather be piloted by someone else.

Someone like Keith.

Remember that battle at the end of season 1? Whilst Shiro was getting spat out of the Lion and having a panic attack, Keith was doing this:

Yep, just casually taking on Zarkon one-on-one, without hesitation. Not only does Keith intervene to save the Black Lion from Zarkon’s grasp - he also fights Zarkon head-to-head, repeatedly charging back into the attack with no regard for his own safety.

Shiro must have seen and heard this and thought: “That’s the kind of Paladin the Black Lion deserves. That’s the kind of Paladin she wants.” A brave and decisive leader, not a hot mess. Someone who’ll charge at Zarkon head-first; who can keep it together in the midst of battle. Shiro thinks he should have been the one battling Zarkon, not Keith. As Black Paladin and leader of Voltron, he should have been the one to charge at Zarkon and try and take him down. Instead, he was having a panic attack, and Keith was the one who stepped up.

Shiro chooses Keith to be the next leader of Voltron because he thinks Keith is the kind of leader Voltron needs, and the kind of Paladin the Black Lion deserves.

It doesn’t particularly matter that this choice doesn’t make a lot of sense, or that the team might be better off with a more cool-headed and thoughtful leader. This is not a rational decision on Shiro’s part. It’s a decision rooted in his own insecurities. His decision-making is flawed: not because of bias or favouritism, but because of his own sense of inadequacy. He looks at Keith and sees someone who will take on Zarkon without hesitation. He looks at himself and sees a failure. And he concludes that Keith is the kind of Paladin the Black Lion wants - that she would rather have Keith than him.

And the Black Lion spends most of season 2 proving him wrong, but that’s a meta for another day.

(thank you @bentfire for the screencaps btw)

i know that the fandom’s main love is pining Keith with oblivious Lance and i’m for that but I totally see Keith as not knowing what the fuck a crush is so Lance is the one that’s pining first but he has no idea he’s doing it, like he still flirts with all the other aliens but he tends to be the first one to volunteer for a mission that Keith’s going on, and he sulks when Keith goes places without him, and he gets kinda anxious when he goes without Keith because as reckless as the guy is, his presence makes Lance feel like he can be more clear-headed (I think Lance is just as foolhardy as Keith is when he’s by himself or with more cautious people but he’s one of those people who becomes more cool-headed the more reckless the people around him are)

and Allura is the first one who notices the way that Lance keeps putting his little defense drone into more dangerous situations so that he can be fighting next to Keith, and Keith starts complaining to Shiro or Pidge that Lance is being like, super competitive lately and won’t leave him alone?? What is happening all of a sudden he was always like this but now he’s extra like this??

And meanwhile Lance is complaining to Hunk about how annoying everything Keith does is but all he does is reveal just how much he’s been paying attention to Keith

and finally Pidge gets really frustrated listening to Keith whine and they just throw their tools across the room and shout “oh my god, Keith, Lance has a crush on you, like it’s so obvious has no one else noticed??” and as luck would have it, everyone else is around except for Lance, and Keith is like “what the fuck no?? I’ve seen him flirt that’s not how he does it he’s not flirting with me he doesn’t have feelings for me” but everyone else is around and they’re just like son.

Shiro just kinda shakes his head with his head in his hand, and Coran is like “well it’s not like they did it on Altea but it’s very clear that Lance is experiencing a severe case of feelings for you” and Allura’s like “I mean it’s obvious that he wants to be around you like 24/7″ and Hunk affirms that Lance talks a lot about Keith’s eyes and he might think he’s complaining but no one complains that lovingly about the color of someone’s eyes

And Keith just

stands there and stares like

everyone else knew?????  what is crush how do??

but he starts paying more attention to Lance then, and agreeing to let him come on more solo missions and volunteering to go on ones that Lance is going on because he wants to figure it out for himself, and they bicker a lot cause that’s what they do but Keith realizes that hey yeah they actually get along really well? And Lance keeps like, absently touching him, like giving him shoulder bumps or high fives or even like fixing Keith’s hair when it gets into his eyes like a mother hen and Keith’s like holy shit actually yes i think i like him is this what a crush is??

but the fun part is

Lance still doesn’t realize his own feelings

and it doesn’t come out until Keith, red-faced, blurts out in the middle of an argument that “I REALLY LIKE YOU AND YOU KEEP ACTING LIKE YOU LIKE ME SO STOP TEASING ME AND MAKING ME QUESTION WHETHER OR NOT YOU DO” and Lance is like ????????? and Keith storms off to hide in a ball in his room and Lance just looks helplessly at everyone else like “what’s his deal??” and they all just shake their heads at him like “dude….you’ve had a crush on him….for weeks…all the signs are there….”

And very very slowly it all dawns on Lance and he’s like

“how the fuck am I the always last to know everything???”

Transcendent Potential

Aries is naturally inclined to be competitive, emotional, and self-centered. However, it has the greatest potential for diplomacy, logical thinking and selflessness of all the signs. 

Taurus is naturally inclined to be calm, straightforward, and practical. However, it has the greatest capacity for passion, deception, and spontaneity of all the signs.

Gemini is naturally disloyal, shallow, and unstable. It can be the greatest ally, capable of incredible depth, and most reliable out of all the signs.

Cancer is naturally manipulative, insecure, and weak. However, it has the greatest potential for honesty, self-confidence, and strength of all the signs.

Leo is naturally self-centered, self-serving, and attention-seeking. It can be the most modest, generous, and carry the greatest admiration for others, of all the signs. 

Virgo is naturally critical, serious, and lacking in spirituality. In its highest expression, it can see beauty in every little thing, has a great sense of humor, and connects deeply with the universe

Libra is extremely co-dependent, easily confused, and a natural follower. It can be the most independent, clear-thinking, and commanding leader of all the signs.

Scorpio is paranoid, obsessive, and prone to violent emotions. It can be the most trusting, detached, and cool-headed of all the signs.

Sagittarius is naturally unreliable, emotionally distant, and optimistic to the point of near-delusion. The evolved version of the sign is dependable, unreserved, and realistic (without being cynical).

Capricorn is inclined to be controlling, materialistic, and faithless. The transcendent capricorn surrenders control to the universe, releases attachment to things and money, and has complete trust in itself and the world.

Aquarius is naturally self-serving, cold, and arrogant about its own ideas to the point of narrow mindedness. It can be of great service to others, genuinely warm, and the most open-minded of the signs.

Pisces is self-deluded, irresponsible, and prone to self-pity. In its highest form, it can see itself and the world with perfect clarity, carries out mundane responsibilities without complaint, and becomes apathetic to its own pain. 

**Note: each sign reaches its transcendental potential when it takes on the best traits of its opposite sign, along with the best qualities of itself

you’ve heard of bokuto being insecure,  but have you considered

akaashi also being insecure. 

akaashi being insecure about his relationship w bokuto, both as a teammate and not. Unless you’re childhood friends, there is always something a little tenuous about being the younger friend. And when bokuto leaves high school oh man, it must hurt to be left behind, even if there was no choice, and especially if Akaashi thinks bokuto will find a setter that can bring out his best better than he can, better than he ever had 

akaashi being insecure about how he looks. just because the fandom decided he’s pretty doesnt mean he knows he’s pretty. He’s a teenager, and I’m sure there are days where you think you look great and days where u feel you look like absolute garbage. Especially when he looks upon Bokuto, who shines when he gets a good hit in. How can anyone compare to that?

akaashi being insecure with his attitude. Akaashi seems like the kind of kid that tried to grow up too fast. he didn’t act childish because he was praised by ‘how mature’ he was at a young age. adopted this cool persona when he can be (and is) just as jealous and bitter as anyone else (maybe even more jealous even). Just as childish as anyone else. to someone like that, someone like bokuto, who is even able to express himself so freely (even if he gets reprimanded), is so admirable.

Now, I love my cool headed and maybe even suave akaashis, but he’s still just a kid. I want to explore an akaashi that is awkward off the court, who’s awkward when confessed to and maybe even around bokuto, (being awkward around a crush seems natural), i just wanna see some akaashi thats a little unconventionally attractive in his manner of talk. we dont gotta stop the really cool akaashis lets just spice our life up with akaashi that has no idea how to deal w anything that isnt bokuto or volleyball 

Hey for your own good DON’T think about the pic of supergirl and cat by the dumpsters and imagine it’s 2117 and everyone Kara knew before, except a handful of alien friends, are dead and she still looks so young but inside she feels ancient and tired and sometimes when she’s a little out of it she will see them, the people she loved before, when she’s in the heat of battle she will feel Alex like a shadow over her, keeping her cool and clear headed. When she sits alone at the bar like they used to all those decades ago she’ll hear the cascade of laughter and if she closes her eyes she can feel them all there, James and Winn and Maggie and Lena, all laughing and loving together.

And when she’s at the end of her rope and it just doesn’t seem worth it anymore, when the weight of loss outweighs any joy she can find in her continued existence, she’ll see Cat. Cat who has been gone for so, so long will show up like she always did, sweeping in with a disinterested flourish to tell her she’s too good, too smart, too wonderful to just give up.

“Honestly, Kiera,” she’ll hear at the back of her mind, and maybe the voice sounds a little different than she actually sounded when she was alive, because time can take away pieces of a person no matter how tightly you hold on, but she would know her with any voice, in any life. “How many times do i have to tell you this?”

And Kara will just smile through the scolding, feeling for the first time in a long time like she can breathe deep, like her lungs have been frozen solid and they are only now beginning to warm.

“I don’t know, Miss Grant,” she says, “but tell me again anyway.”
