who is your favorite voltron character? which paladin are you most like?
hoLY FLIPPIN’ HECK I SAW THIS AND COULDN’T ANSWER AT THE TIME AND THEN I FORGOT i’M SO SORRY
I so rarely get asks too that I was super excited for this ;;;;;;
My favorite Voltron character and the one I identify with most strongly are, I’m sure to nobody’s surprise, the same:
…that being, Lance.
Hoo boy I love this kid. I love him??? I love him.
I just… I can remember back to when I first watched S1, back in… August or so? Only a month or two after it came out. And being shocked by how deeply I felt connected to this goofy, gangly dork of a kid. I remember I wanted so badly for him to have an insecurities storyline because it honestly seemed appropriate for him right from the getgo and (because of how intensely I was projecting) I wanted it for myself, too.
Lance is such a big mess with such a big heart. He’s constantly embarrassing himself just by the simple act of speaking while simultaneously looking out for his teammates with everything he has in him. When he was keeping Pidge out of trouble and then checking up on them in episode 1 it just touched my heart and it’s been that way ever since and I just relate so strongly to that - to that feeling of honestly being a constant embarrassing screwup of a disaster child who isn’t as good as everyone else… but like, wanting so bad to be everyone’s friend and lighten the mood to make people less stressed and worried and wanting to take care of them when they seem like they’re in trouble?
This could be about 5000 words longer but I. I’ll just. quit while I’m ahead,,,,
thank you so much kind anon for this wonderful ask!!
