A lot of people say sorry to us because we didn’t get first place today but I wanna let you guys know it’s fine because we know that you guys work hard for us and you guys know we work hard too and yeah that’s it. We don’t need anything more than that. Like you know we have each other and that’s the most- like that’s all that matters. We don’t need first place. Like okay it might be important but it’s not as important as like we have each other. First place is not everything, you know? So stop saying sorry, we’re fine.
(Since some people aren’t understanding the post, here’s an explanation: A small part as to why Keith most likely didn’t want to fly the Black Lion/lead and was also pulling away from the group was because Lance was feeling insecure about his position on the team, since there are more members than there were lions and he was feeling doubtful, which is why he wanted to step aside on the team. Now that Shiro is able to pilot Black, he prob doesn’t want to take Red away from Lance too so that he feels somewhat worthless - since he has so much self confidence issues. That may have influenced him to go with the BOM as well, along with Shiro being leader again. Like I said tho it was prob only a small part of the reasoning, not the full part.)
