They say that Keith’s eyes are “Blue-Gray” But that shit dead ass Purple???
Anyway, the homie Keith is the only (“human”) one with irregular eye color in the show, it being a purple-ish color (that shit is dead ass purple, not blue-gray. Kiss my ass with that). If the paladins and I didn’t watch so much anime- maybe we’d notice that, that boy was a damn alien the moment we saw him.
back in 2015, at the end of my eighth grade year, i didn’t understand why i was awarded for being the quietest kid during the superlatives.
looking back now, i finally do. i never talked to anybody in middle school, because nobody was my friend. i can recall only knowing three (3) kids that bothered with regularly talking to me in eighth grade. any other friends i had, i never got to see, because i shared no classes with them.
every other kid, whether intentionally or not, bullied me. they told me i couldn’t sit at certain lunch tables, laughed at me or talked over me when i asked questions in class, yelled at me/belittled me for no reason, insulted my artwork/made fun of my interests; those were all things that all those other kids did to me in middle school.
those asses wonder why i was so quiet in class. it’s because i didn’t fucking like them, they made me feel my voice wasn’t worth being heard.
Oliver took the offer! FFF I lost the Cernes/Tem one so I will post this with just Mao/Oliver and then add the re-made one for them! I’m sorry Socks omg OTL They’re both fun to draw and v cute <333 Cernes would be very confused and apologize+blush a bunch, hahaha.
Ezor - aloof, cheerful, excellent in hand to hand combat, also has throwing knives, basically space Tai-Lee, can turn invisible, calls the lions ‘kitties’, im gay for her
Zethrid - L E M M E S M A S H (no thats not a joke she literally wants to blow everything up), ridiculous amount of strength, a bit of a hot head, basically galra Jasper, when she’s not using her fists shes got a big gun
Narti - blind, mind control powers (works at close range), has a tail that she uses in fights, very lizard like, sees world through cats eyes, doesnt speak?
Axca (or Auxia?) - gun baby, team’s head of info, seems to have the closest attachment to Lotor out of the 4, weblum galra
The Original Paladins of Voltron (excluding Alfor and Zarkon)
Gyrgan - “AM I A LEG??”, this guy would think of Hunk as his son okay
Trigel - wise, sassy, witty, awesome
Blaytz - he’s like older Lance, i shipped him with alfor for a minute, he’s also gay (did you catch that?), im also pretty sure he’s from some water based planet because he’s got gills on his neck
It’s really interesting to me that what is arguably Lance’s greatest strength is also his biggest source of insecurity.
Like, this boy is so adaptable. You can throw him into space, into a war, into a new lion, and he’ll essentially shrug his shoulders and slot himself into place. What makes the kid a powerhouse is that you can put him in any circumstance and he’ll find out where he fits and pretty much be able to hold his own there. He can integrate himself into basically any group dynamic (see: rebel mermaids, Hunk + Lance + BoM, and Team Voltron after Shiro). What Lance brings to the table is an ability to do what’s needed, to fill roles that need filling, and to mesh with anyone.
But, for someone who values standing out, that would be seen as a negative trait. Lance wants to carve out his own place in the group– it’s why he’s so attached to the idea of being the “sharpshooter” (though, that does appear to be a niche of his!!). To him, it seems like everyone else around him has this “thing” that makes them special and unique– and, since he doesn’t (or, at least, he thinks other people don’t think he does) he feels sort of average and unskilled by comparison.
The creators have said before that Lance’s character is about “providing what’s needed at the time” and like. Exactly. His “thing” is that he can essentially take on any “thing” you need him to and do it at least decently. That’s what makes him unique, and I can’t wait to see him realize it.
shoutout to the raven cycle for being one of the few series where i actually like every single character. a bunch of nerds looking for a dead welsh king? sign me the fuck up. strangely polite hitman? where have u been all my life? a villainous weird couple obsessed with their own aesthetic? double yes. magical psychic ladies, how about 💯 👌👌
