why ravenclaw lance is canon

an essay
written on the eve of season 2 by maireep

first demolish your ideas about ravenclaw house; we got a Harry Potter-perspective of what constitutes you for ravenclaw; just as we did for hufflepuff and slytherin so obviously brains is not the only thing that ravenclaws are about –and let’s break it down 

Lance McClain is:
witty/flirty, creative, individualistic/original (confidence), free-spirited 
his balanced abilities that made him become the blue paladin are the same traits for ravenclaw

even the most stereotypical trait for ravenclaw (wisdom/intelligence) is present in his situational awareness and improvisation, which both require sharp quick intuitive thinking!!!!

also lets take a glance at the other paladins; all of them have specific traits that most commonly slot them into houses almost premeditatively 
Hunk = hufflepuff (loyalty, kindness, hard work, patience)
Pidge = slytherin (ambitious, resourceful, cunning, cleverness)
Keith = gryffindor (nerve, bravery, daring, courage) 

Lance is canonically written to be a jack-of-all-trades, he’s got traits that fit many of the houses (just as Pidge has intelligence, Keith has ambition, Hunk has bravery) 

However, ravenclaw is the only house that fits Lance to a T
and in conclusion Lance is the ravenclaw we all deserve 


“Shit-packer porn.” That is…that is very interesting. ‘Cause this is where the relationship between subject and object reverses. The proverbial shoe shifting to the other foot. And what was seen… now reveals the seer. Because the eyes of the beholder find not just beauty where they want, but also shallowness, ugliness, confusion… prejudice. Which is to say the beholder will always see what they want to see. Suggesting that what you, Mr. Valles, want to see is in fact shit-packer porn.
