Shiro definitely makes a first impression on the team as Intimidatingly Cool and a major icebreaker between him and Hunk is them bonding over puns. Hunk makes a pun without thinking, and before Lance can even groan about it Shiro fires right back with a related pun and Hunk looks like he’s witnessed a miracle.
Hunk and Lance bond because they were already best friends. Hunk and Keith bond because Keith is like a sad kitten left out in the rain and there’s no way Hunk doesn’t hone in on that like a heat seeking missile. Hunk and Pidge bond over science. Hunk and Shiro? bond over puns.
Coran totally gets in there too but he’s put-out that cultural barriers mean some of his jokes require way too much explanation to be funny. He’s personally deeply vindicated the first time he makes a joke involving klanmuirl migratory patterns and Lance groans right away.
Pidge groans about puns. Her dad and her brother are both awful with puns so she’s just done with them. Lance didn’t mind puns until he started hanging out with Hunk, who takes these things to an entirely new level.
Keith is indifferent to puns but tends to get them like five to ten seconds later than everyone else unless someone explains it to him. (On that note there is no way to make Keith angry faster than “nobody explain the joke.”)
Allura will groan at other people’s puns (especially Coran’s, early on she’s the main indication the paladins have that Coran is making a pun) but once in a blue moon she likes to make them herself. When they’re her puns, she finds them absolutely hilarious.
All you batjokes shippers do yourself a favor and watch Supermansion on Crackle (if you don’t mind crude adult humor, of course). The Batman and Joker expies (Black Saturn and Groaner, respectively) not only have a similar arc to Lego Batman’s (just that in this case, it’s Black Saturn who is obsessive about labeling their relationship) but as of the more recent episode, the show has acknowledged that their relationship is supposed to be read as romantic.
They’re basically batjokes on crack and it’s gay and awesome.
I ran into a post about how the fandom (myself included) tends to take Shiro a little too seriously as like. a paragon of rationality or the Responsible One when I mean, he was right in there with the laser gun noises with everyone else, so I’ve been committed to the idea of putting more levity into my Shiro meta.
First idea I had: imagine at some point Shiro’s arm gets seriously trashed and it needs to get detached so they can work on it properly, so Shiro is just going around the castle with a stump.
And he starts making arm jokes.
Lance is a groaner, and part of the reason why Lance is so good at catching puns is Hunk loves them so Hunk and Shiro rapidly just start volleying off each other at a terrifying rate.
At some point Allura steps in “Shiro, I think you’re killing Lance.”
“Oh, I don’t know about that, Princess. It’s all ‘armless fun.”
Cue Shiro laughing at his own joke while Allura is trying really, really hard to keep a straight face on because Shiro… that was awful.
based off a request I got asking how Seventeen would sound in bed. pretty nsfw; it sucks that they won't let you put chats under a cut??? so smut warning and if you don't like, don't read. -Tanisha<3)
When it comes to moans/whimpers/etc, S.Coups would actually be fairly quiet. He'd more of a giver than a taker, and when he is receiving, he is more just heavy breaths and the very occasional deep groan. He saves that groan for when he's coming, probably with your name, and if you can get him to make noise otherwise it's a huge accomplishment. That and he's also a big dirty talker. I mean, he's got a gorgeous deep voice and he just loves the way you react to it and he would just dirty talk even if it was for himself.
He just makes the absolute best sex noises. I've read some fics about the boys singing during and actually whatever noises he made would be so beautiful sounding that you might mistake them for song. Like he's just so perfect that this would bleed into every aspect of life. Even when he's getting head and there's right or wrong way to do that, he was just look so gorgeous and sound ten thousand times better. And the sound of your name being moaned off his lips would actually almost kill you because it sounds so good.
Just imagine being on your knees in front of him and you're giving him so much pleasure it's almost painful and he's just on the verge of cumming when his mouth hangs open and his voice cracks when he lets out a heavy "Jesus Christ". I love the irony and it actually really suits him (and now I just can't get that out of my head). He has such a sweet, small voice that hearing him mutter filthy things ("you like that, babygirl?" or "God, you look so good on my cock.") would be a contrast that you would never get over. And hearing him swear over and over in that sweet voice - it would wreck you. (Cause just the thought wrecks me but that's off topic.)
He would also be another quiet one. He's so concentrated on you and not blowing his load early that he gets pretty quiet during sex. And he's so athletic (with all the dance and the martial arts) that it would take a lot to getting him panting or breathing heavily. But this doesn't really bother you much.
This kid won't shut up during sex. We all know he's like sex wrapped up in a cheesy sweatband and sex would be all or nothing with him and it's never nothing. So he groans, moans, whimpers, panting, huffing; any imaginable or unimaginable human noise to make during sex will come out of his mouth. He gets so into the head space of sex and really lets himself get lost in you that he never ever holds himself back vocally.
I find him so hard to peg. He could either be very quiet or surprise you and burst out the worst/best kind of dirty talk you've ever heard and have the moans of a porn star. He would probably feel like his moans need to be a show for you, so he might exaggerate them a little. That's not even a bad thing. He wants to let you know you're doing a good job and turning him on and he can do that with his dirty words and dirty, dirty sounds.
Whimpers; he has those shaky little whimpers, especially because he desperately tries to hold himself back. He can be kind of a grump and he's got this well-established thing about pride, but when that first, tiny little whimper escapes him you know you've broken him. Then they slowly get louder and more intense and some of them even become high pitched moans, all mixed in with gusting breaths. During sex he breaths like someone who's trying not to sound out of breath; and it's actually incredibly sexy.
Loves to bit his lip and kiss you to mask his noises. He indulges himself much more in your moans and prefers not to have the attention on himself. If anything he lets out that epic, finishing moan when he's orgasming and it cracks his voice and shudders in the best way.
This motherfucker is a groaner. He groans full and deep and lets it rumble through his chest so you can see it and feel it and hear it so clear and just let it fuck you up. He doesn't shy away from making noise, and it's deep and manly and always serves to turn you on.
A giant puppy and kind of hard for me to imagine in terms of sex; if anything, he got gasps down pat. Whatever you do in bed either takes him by surprise or just leaves him breathless and this results in a lot of pitchy gasps, mixed with your name and maybe he would even surprise you with some swears. I feel like he'd also be a lip-biter, trying to hold his sounds back because he would shy of them.
An amazing moaner; he has the most beautiful voice and when he really gets into holding music notes, it sounds like just pure sex moans. He moans so nicely during sex that he could make a living doing audio porn. All nice and low and raspy. Sometimes higher pitched, ending in gasps. And he's not really a dirty-talker, but he's incredibly bossy during sex, and not afraid to tell his partner what he wants from them and exactly how, and this just comes out sounding like the best dirty talk of the century. I mean the sounds he makes during sex are anybody's wet dream.
his moans are perfect. He's another one with a sex voice; and when he gets in the bedroom he lets lust takeover every inch of his body and his mind gets completely hazed over. This means he reacts to everything you do, moaning and saying your name and swearing (we all know how much he loves his swears) at each little move you make. His voice is usually pretty worn out after sex, and toward his orgasm he gets the best rasp in his voice that's the biggest turn-on for you. You work to make that rasp worse each time and sometimes even put him out of commission for rapping the next day.
A lot of panting. Even though he dances he still not quite used to the full exertion of sex but he's still there with you the whole time and eager and excited for it. He asks a lot of questions - he needs to know if he's doing this right (even if he done it once or twice before) and if you like it and what you're thinking because your pleasure is the most important thing. He lets the occasional moan slip through, when his mind gets lost, and it's really embarrassed. Most of the time his mind is just far too busy during sex to let his body make noise.
I really hope we get to see Saturn and Groaner date next season and they don’t leave it as “it will happen eventually” thing. I’m insanely curious about how it would happen - would Saturn realize first, and become even more obsessed with Groaner? Would he bother the hell out of Groaner to get him to date him?
(I want Saturn to prepare a big thing to tell the team, only for them to go “no shit, of course you two are dating.” )
