i think a lot about the fact that shiro is so ready to fight his abusers and captors when he’s all suited up and yet… when he’s not in uniform it’s far more triggering and personal for him (with sendak in s1 and how he jumped headfirst into fighting him in the suit but when he was out of it and alone with him… he was super triggered)
it just makes me think that while he knows his trauma doesn’t define him, no matter how guilty it might make him feel… putting on that paladin armour and fighting for the good of the galaxy.. putting an end to the abuse and torture the galra inflict on others just like him. i just…
the suit gives shiro strength, confidence and motivation to carry on and confront the people who manipulated, tortured and mutilated him.
doesn’t matter if you hate shiro, because he loves and would fight for you
i am physically and emotionally crying he revealed his real name and identity to the summoner he trusts them THAT much AND HE VOWS…TO FIGHT FOR THEM…….AND WITH A WIDE SMILE WHILE HES AT IT IM SO…………………..
