the vld fandom has to stop bashing one another because of ships (sheith, klance, kallura, etc.) people need to recognize that ships definitely AREN’T everything in voltron. this show is just about some teens + shiro who are all good friends and paladins of the mighty robot lion voltron who fight against evil emperor zarkon in order to save the universe. Realize how in that short summary NOWHERE in there did I talk about ships.
these shipping wars must stop because even the executive producers said that so far there isn’t any romantic interactions because they want to take it slow and let the relationships happen over time.
here’s part of a recent interview the two had talking about ships:
Obviously, a lot of viewers do ‘ship characters within the show. But in two seasons you haven’t really touched on romance. Is that intentional or is it just that these characters don’t have time, with the Galrans always about to attack? DOS SANTOS: We don’t really shy away from it necessarily. We’re not against it. But there’s business at hand that they have to attend to. When you really think about it, they’re on a ship with each other, but they haven’t really had time to do a ton of socializing and really get to know each other. Our relationships build just like our backstories do. We like to let it happen over time. MONTGOMERY: Ultimately the big thing is, these characters have a lot on their plate and had we had a situation where the world was not at stake and they were just allowed to hang out more, we would have gone more heavily into that romance realm. But right now anyone in that situation would be like, “All right, maybe my personal love life’s going to be on the backburner. This thing is pretty important.” That’s how we treat the characters and how we feel that they would actually react in that situation.
No matter what you ship or how many “moments” they had together, in the end we don’t know what ship will be canon and what will happen. So, just respect everyone’s opinion and do not give hate towards them for loving their ship. let people be happy if their ship has a moment, not give them a hard time and make them feel bad for shipping what they love.
we live in a world completely full of hate and we tend to focus on the bad side of things, but just because we tend to doesn’t mean we should. let’s not be know as the fandom that bashes on each other because of ships and discourages one another because of their opinion; instead let’s be a fandom that respects everyone so that everyone can have a place to put out their thoughts on what they like and not be afraid of being smashed with hate. let’s show people what a great fandom we are.
I love this fandom so much and I hate to see it get torn apart because of ships.
Depends on the project. If you mean just in general I use Motion 2 a lot for quick nulls, anchor points, and keyframe easing. I use gifgun for quick gif export if I’m too lazy to go into Photoshop. Duik is helpful for character rigging, Twitch is good for generating glitches and such, Twixtor is cool with making footage 60fps (a lot of AMV people use this), AE Sweets is really cool with generating motion graphics effects – I used this a lot back then to learn how certain effects were done.
