How about an au where lance is galra and has to deal with prejudice from the people he's saving.
How about just stabbing me right now
Lance was proud of his heritage, he was Galra. He was part of one of last pure blood in the entire species. Lance was proud of that. Growing up he thought that being Galra was the best thing that could’ve happened to him. He was mistaking.
Lance was around 14 when he realized that the Galra wasn’t what he was taught in school. By ready journals from his father (who was a high ranking soldier) Lance learned that he had been lied to his entire life. Lance couldn’t believe what he read. They killed people. They destroyed planets. For what? Zarkon?
Lance didn’t sleep that night.
Lance was 17 when he ran away from home. He couldn’t deal with the lies anymore. He couldn’t deal with the fact that his father was the only in his family that knew the truth. He couldn’t deal with listening to one more ‘proud Galren’ speech.
After bouncing from planet to planet Lance found himself as the Blue Paladin. He could tell that Allura wasn’t happy that Blue chose him, but no one had ever seen a stronger bond between paladin and lion before.
Lance eventually learned to deal with Allura’s hard stare and unapproachable personality. At least Coran eventually opened up to him.
Allura wasn’t the only aliens to jump the gun on Lance. It was not uncommon for Lance to have to dodge weapons from people that they saved. It also wasn’t uncommon for people to run inside the nearest builden they saw when Lance walk down a street with the other paladins.
Lance eventually broke.
Lance was flying back from a particularly hard mission. The city that they saved held a party in Voltrons name, however they “forgot” to invite the right leg.
Lance sat in Blue while the other paladins have fun at their party. He was the first one to take off when the other paladins reached their lions.
Allura’s voice blasted through the coms, “Great work out there paladins! Shiro you did an ex…”
Lance tuned her out, she did this after every mission. She would compliment everyone on what they did right but only criticize Lance on what he needed to work on.
“Lance? Did you hear me? You can’t fly that rough with the blue lion. You’ll end up damaging her.”
“I do not wish to schedule extras practices for you, but I will. You need to improve your skills so you are a valuable member of Voltron.”
Lance snapped. “With all do respect Princess but can you stop? Every mission I have to deal with stares and people running away from me, all because of my skin color. They see purple and immediately run or treat me like garbage.” Lance swallowed. “What did I ever do to hurt you? The only people I have ever hurt is my family. That’s only because I left them without an excuse. So yes Princess I will fly better and continue to improve myself so I can kill Zarkon and leave you alone just like you want.” Lance turned off his coms.
A few minutes later Lance landed Blue in her hanger and just sat there shaking. Allura enter the hanger but Blue activated her barrier. She wanted to protect from her pilot from anymore pain.
I love Galra Lance tbh
I hope you like it!
Thank you for this!
