Lance seams to like pole dance: how react koli?
First of all, lovely Nonnie: What Lance was doing wasn’t pole dancing. It’s more along the lines of rope dancing -it’s breathtaking to see in person, I truly recommend it- I’ve seen a lot of people mix this up, so I don’t fault you for that :3
Second of all: Kolivan takes one look at the video from the base and nearly dies because holy hell Lance that’s impressive! Rope dancing takes an extreme amount of strength that I can’t even begin to comprehend or totally respect, and Kolivan is in the same boat. To be able to support one’s body while in mid air with nothing but a rope and, at times, a single limb is terrifyingly beautiful.
Kolivan takes to rewatching the video because Lance looks so… in his element. He’s in the spotlight, he’s thriving, he’s putting on a show, and it is a show; a very impressive show. It’s not only an act of coordination but of strength and presentation, and Lance does all of that perfectly.
Kolivan makes sure to tell Lance this the next time they see each other, and the awe in Kolivan’s words is kind of… startling? Lance is used to people sexualizing his skill and taking away from the pain he’s gone through to acquire the skill -seriously, lots of bruises and rubbed raw skin and just, not pleasant- so to have Kolivan praising him for all these things is shocking to say the least.
Bottom line: Lance’s skill in rope dancing is beautiful, stunning, dramatic, awe inspiring, and that is exactly what Lance is to Kolivan. The skill is a representation of who Lance is, and Kolivan adores it.
