don't like how this turned out

anonymous asked:

Will u b disappointed if Allura ends up with Keith and Shiro with Romelle just like in Voltron Defender of the Univrse? Kuron or Ryou will probably die so Shiro can take back Black Lion so if Romelle shows up shes probably ending up with Shiro

i don’t get why people keep using DotU as “proof” that VLD will turn out a certain way, i mean…

after S3 there was meta everywhere saying the new line-up was permanent and Shiro wasn’t going to fly Black ever again and Keith was the new Black Paladin and we all just had to get used to it. and a primary source cited for why this was how the show was gonna go was “oh that’s how it was in Old Voltron”.

i know this for a fact because i wrote a bunch of posts about how VLD (the show we all watch and which is in fact not the same show as DotU, i know, wild concept, but they are different shows) had set up Shiro as the only true Paladin of the Black Lion. i got blasted for that a lot, mainly by people throwing DotU in my face and screaming “THIS IS HOW IT’S GONNA GO DOWN JUST ACCEPT IT”.

how’d that turn out again? oh wait, i remember - Keith left to join the Blade of Marmora and Ryou flew the Black Lion and i got to post this meme a lot:

i don’t think any of the scenarios you’ve alluded to are remotely likely:

  • Keith isn’t into Allura and if they were supposed to be set up as the show’s romance then Keith wouldn’t keep leaving Allura to die.
  • Ryou probably isn’t going to die: 3x05 was his character introduction episode, a whole episode just for the audience to connect to him and root for him. that’s a lot of wasted effort for a character that’s just gonna get killed off, which to my mind suggests Ryou is sticking around for the long haul. see also: {the fact that he has a different character design to OG Shiro} so if they’re both in shot together you can easily tell them apart.
  • we don’t even know if a version of Romelle exists in VLD, but if she does - again - there’s no reason to assume she’d be paired off romantically with anyone? let alone Shiro? i mean if you wanna use “Old Voltron” as your source then i’m pretty sure Romelle ended up with Ryou, not Takashi.

can we stop wheeling out DotU as some kind of ironclad guidebook to how VLD is gonna play out. especially since half the people citing it as evidence didn’t even watch it and get the details wrong anyway.

Guess who’s a Whovian? Nah, don’t guess, it’s pretty obvious. Anyway I actually forgot to upload the things I did for the convention months back. These badge designs were some from then. Thought I’d best put em up before I forgot again. Have a good day folks! I’ll be around.
