I'm not sure how to read "WAS STILL his guiding light" like is she saying shiro has been Keith's guiding light for a long time? Or that he was back then but lately not so much ? 👀 Disclaimer: I'm not tryna say that Keith doesn't care as much about shiro anymore cuz it's clear that they care about each other a lot but maybe he's starting to branch off.
YEAH god this is so interesting. because it implies keith probably was lost before shiro came along to some degree, and that’s hinted at earlier, too, when we find out he dropped out of the garrison after kerberos. i don’t know how that started, but i’m seeing the fandom divide down two lines since season 4: either it’s a good thing that keith is getting some distance from shiro or a bad thing. i’m not really sure which camp i’m in yet. on the one hand, i don’t think they were “codependent” before and i think he’s unhappy to be off the team. on the other hand, maybe getting some distance will help him grow into his own even more. i’d love a more confident, self-centered keith. guess we’ll see!
