Wait what? Does Allura have a similar look on her face when she thinks of Altea and Shiro? Could you please provide us with the screenshots?
GLADLY. it’s a super quick, small moment from 2x05, but it’s honestly one of my favourites, and like, there is literally no reason for it to exist?? but it does?? it warms my heart
so after Coran’s sped off down the hallway with the slipperies, Shiro, after an awkward pause, jumps into leader mode (because honestly, how to do you react to the slipperies and Coran all at once?)
Shiro: All right. Since Zarkon has no idea where we are, this is the perfect time to focus on our next step. Maybe we can find that secret group, the Blade of Marmora. Pidge, where are those coordinates?
The next shot, as Shiro says this, is of the team, and none of them look happy with what he’s saying. Keith is full on pouting, Hunk and Lance are sighing… but Allura glances down with a very fond look on her face??
She looks so fond of the paladin she can always rely on to take charge when she needs him too, but she also looks strangely sad. She was very clearly looking at Shiro, and then glances away with that fond little smile on her face. One of those moments you get when you look at someone you love but are like, “wow, i can’t believe how much i love them?” and how much you adore that person (whether romantically/platonically/etc.) is just almost overwhelming? And she doesn’t want him to see (and we know from all three seasons that she’s someone to keep her feelings to herself whenever she can help it). She knows that this moment, however much she cares for him, is a perfect reminder of why they can’t be together right now: they have far more important things to worry/think about.
As for the Altea comparison, here’s a shot of her missing/thinking about Altea.
This post shows probably a better close up, but yeah. Hope this answers your question! It’s such a small moment that it gets easily overlooked (especially since the iconic Hand Touch is in 2x05 as well) but honestly I think it’s a huge moment in showing how privately and deeply Allura cares about Shiro. Like I said, in terms to the post I’m sure you’re referencing, Shiro has come to be home to a woman without one, shown in a number of ways:
when Allura loses Altea (again) in 1x09, and then her father, who is the only one to directly comfort her? Shiro.
in s2, Allura says the paladins have become like family to her. And who has always been on her side since day one, deferring to her, trusting her, supporting her, throughout each season and episode in small ways? Shiro
I’m not saying that Shiro has become her home… but yeah, Shiro has become her home
televison meme: [5/15] relationships → Brittany and Santana ↳ Some people love someone because they make them a better person, and that’s not why I love you, because you’ve always just wanted me to be myself. You’re my favourite person in the whole world. And we’re a big deal, you know, like no matter how many times we’ve tried to put our thing down and walk away from it, we can’t… Because I don’t want to live my life without my one true love. Brittany S. Pierce, will you marry me?
can u believe that in o helga natt even thought he lost isak just like he lost the balloon boys back at bakka….and he just accepted the fact that he was toxic to other people and he was destined to be alone…….and then isak showed up seemingly out of nowhere and even was so shocked he couldn’t find any words…..and isak just held him and told him he was not alone and even still felt like he didn’t deserve him because his thoughts were so insistent that he just ruins all good things…..do u ever cry about even bech næsheim
so i know we shyan shippers all love the Classic "scared ryan/comforting shane" trope, but what about when shane is down after a lot of the true crime cases?? the roles flip and suddenly ryan comforts shane,,, or maybe mutual comforting???
god esp after the jonbenet case?? like shane was visibly so disturbed and upset ?? my boy is a sad boy
“You don’t have a single inkling how thankful I am that you’re here, alive and breathing in front of me. I love you more than anything, Santi, I mean that. I’ve missed you these past months and I know there’s a reason you haven’t been around. Tell me when you’re ready, but just know…you’re my greatest friend. No one ever saw so much in me as you did, and I don’t think you’ve ever known this, but I’ve always thought the same of you. You’re such a spectacular soul…in your own strange, Santi way. And I’ve seen the most loyal parts of you, the most generous and pure hearted, altruistic parts that are begging to be seen. So let them out, Santi, and accept the love you deserve.”
