Lance approaches the leader of Voltron, saying he feels as if he doesn’t fit anymore, and sincerely believes his absence would have greater benefits for the team. He is told not to worry. He receives encouragement. Lance leaves feeling secure in his role as a Paladin, his insecurities somewhat put to rest.
Keith approaches the team, states he feels he doesn’t fit as their leader, and yet also doesn’t want to disrupt the new makeup of the Paladins. He sincerely believes his absence will have greater benefits to the team. He is told that if that’s what he truly believes, he can leave and still have his support network. He receives encouragement. Keith leaves Voltron, his personal opinion of his placement validated.
You know, if I wasn’t part of this fandom, I might think this show is actually scripted.
Because, in the campaign guide Matt released several months ago to the public, there’s this:
“The actual date of the [Matron of Raven’s] rise to divinity is unclear, but the Night of Ascension is nonetheless celebrated on the thirteenth day of the tenth month. Many people of Emon see this cheery celebration of the dead to be unnerving and macabre, but the Raven’s followers believe the honored dead would rather be venerated with cheer, not misery.”
Now Matt, in his final description of the campaign, with the exposition of that evening in Zephra, said “…Cuersaar the thirteenth, the tenth month of the year…”, which means that Kiki gains a raven companion on the day where those devoted to the Raven Queen celebrate those who have passed, and remember their legacy.
But, this campaign closed on the 13th of October, the tenth month of our calendar year, at least where I live. (give or take a few hours, depending on the time zone)
And I can’t think of a better time to send these characters off than on a day where, in their fictional world, there would be people finding joy and hope in the stories they left behind them.
okay one last thing before i stop drawing for the day
so i really wanted to make an au for cc and after some thinking i figured i could do a coraline au!!
basically everything takes place at the camp, max would be like a new camper showing up, nikki is a fucking furry bc i didn’t think anyone else fit very well (i mean heck nikki isn’t a perfect fit but oh well) david and gwen would still be counselors but they would take the role of coraline’s parents y’know?
and daniel and gen/jen? would be like the other parents
Okay but do you realize that this shit has happened to Sana before? and that’s why her mother is so worried about her… It looks like Sana has been bullied before, in the school she went to before Nissen; since the flashing images of hate messages in the new clip was from people from that school. Honestly this explains so much of Sana’s behavior and her mother’s protectiveness over her and why she wants Sana to “have friends that are more like her”… she wanted to prevent Sana from getting bullied and hurt again.
