“Hey everyone! I just wanted to send you this quick video message to tell you how excited I am to be attending Clexa Con, the very first Clexa Con. I’ll be there next weekend in Las Vegas of course on Saturday March 4th and Sunday March 5th. Make sure you follow them on Twitter and Instagram @clexacon and check out their website so you know when and where exactly to find me. And I will see you in Sin City. So many queer ladies under one roof. That’s going to be a wild trip. Byeeee!”
I’m going to get straight to the point, you guys are self-destructive and are going to kill the fandom over your petty arguments and stupid self-entitlement. There hasn’t been a day since the beginning of the fandom that everything has just been peaceful for once (and I’ve been here since it’s birth) You all should be ashamed of yourselves, fighting online and hurting real people over fiction (this is not specifically towards ships btw) And I’m putting my foot down at all of this bullshit and trying to stop it
This is pretty lengthy so everything is under the cut
whenever marginalized groups complain about the lack of content highlighting their stories and issues, they are told to “create their own content, then.” however, when they do, they are faced with overwhelming critique, overwhelming ignorance, or a mixture of both.
Lance probably says it first in a semi-serious way. Like, Shiro will do something cool like punch the head off of a Galra drone or catch Pidge in mid-air while she’s falling and Lance will say something along the lines of “See, that’s why I love you.” Shiro is the first one to say it seriously – and he is fucking serious when he says it.
Who would have the other’s picture as their phone background
Shiro. He has the default lockscreen, but his home screen background is Lance with a big, cute smile.
Who leaves notes written in fog on the bathroom mirror
They both do. Lance starts it, though, by reminding Shiro to get more toothpaste when he’s heading back home from work. That night, Shiro writes on the mirror that he’ll be out early the next morning and to have a nice day. It’s less effective than post-it notes, and sometimes they have a hard time reading what the other wrote, but it’s still a nice thing they do for each other every day.
Who buys the other cheesy gifts
I’m not saying that Lance is bad with money, but he can get pretty impulsive when he finds something that reminds him of Shiro. Recent examples including: a Skip-It, sleeveless work out tops, the third season of Psych on DVD, and mochi.
Who initiated the first kiss
Lance. Just. Went for it one night. And Shiro got flustered and nervous and almost freaked himself out of it, but Lance brought him back.
Who kisses the other awake in the morning
Whoever wakes up first. So Shiro.
Who starts tickle fights
Lance. It’s his only effective tactic against Shiro, who is secretly the most ticklish person in the world.
Who asks who if they can join the other in the shower
Shiro. It’s not very often and, to Lance’s surprise, they’re often not very sexual in nature. Since Lance takes his showers in the morning, he suspects it happens the days after Shiro has nightmares. He’d never deny Shiro one of the few comforts he’ll explicitly ask for, and he’d be a big fat liar if he said he didn’t like the feeling of Shiro massaging shampoo into his hair.
Who surprises the other in the middle of the day at work with lunch
Whenever Lance suspects Shiro is feeling down or stressed or overwhelmed by his anxiety, he’ll pack a homemade lunch and bring it to his office. There’s a nice, quiet park right around the corner from Shiro’s office building that is filled with benches and big, shady trees. They have a favorite spot that’s half-protected from the sun in one of the back corners. They’ll eat and partake in epic bitch fests – Iverson dumped three days’ worth of work on Shiro’s desk and expected him to get it finished in an hour; Lance’s professor displayed his last essay to the entire class and demolished it without prior warning; Shiro nearly got T-boned on his way to work and ended up being a half an hour late to work through the panic; Lance locked himself out of the apartment so he had to call Hunk, than Pidge, and than finally Keith before he could get in and take a shit in peace. Sometimes, though, they’ll sit in silence, cuddled up next to each other on the bench and enjoying the others’ company.
Who was nervous and shy on the first date
Shiro was. He tried to stay composed and cool, but cute, flirty boys are a big weakness. Lance was also pretty nervous, but he kept his cool and channelled his nervousness into extra flirty flirtatiousness.
Who kills/takes out the spiders
Lance cannot hurt another living creature and also those little monsters are disgusting and have too many eyes and legs. See, Shiro, you’re braver than Lance, you almost let the gross abomination onto your hand. What a great guy. Go douse yourself in bleach before you get anywhere near Lance.
Who loudly proclaims their love when they’re drunk
Shiro. He treated Lance when he turned 21, aiming to get Lance pleasantly drunk while staying sober to take care of him. Half of that plan failed, and Shiro ended up getting pretty trashed. Before getting kicked out of the bar, he decided that Lance needed to know all of the different ways that Shiro loved him. They both lost count and Shiro may not have been going in order, but sources (Hunk) claim that the list ended somewhere in the low hundreds.
