Voltron Season 3 Idea
A couple of Season 2 spoilers ahead!
I’ve been seeing a lot of people who are shipping Lance and Lotor and power to you guys, but it’s honestly got me thinking. I know what I really want to happen in season 3 BESIDES SHIRO COMING BACK. I want Lotor to find Lance and just know how insecure he is. I mean, Shiro was the only one who called him the team’s sharpshooter, and that was once. Now he’s gone and I want someone to snap and tell Lance he’s useless or he can’t do anything right.
In the original Shiro dies for Lance, and as much as I want Shiro to live, if he does die saving Lance I want everyone to be pissed about it. Even Hunk! I want everyone to look at Lance like Allura looked at Keith when she found out he was Galra. Why? Because I want Lotor to see that, to manipulate what Lance sees in himself. I want Lance to be so desperate for validation and acceptance he actually listens to Lotor and what he has to say. That he kind of turns into a pet almost, one that’ll do anything for the praise a master might give. And this is all if Shiro dies while trying to save Lance mind you, not even if he lives.
If Shiro lives I want it to be after Lotor gets a hold of Lance. They can’t form Voltron right then anyways, not without Shiro. Although Keith might take over the black lion no one would be able to replace his spot in Red. So imagine, Shiro getting back from God knows where and finding that Lance is gone. That Lance is now working with the enemy because no one on the team saw him as an equal like they should have.
I’m not pushing Shance by any means. But Shiro was the only one who noticed Lance being upset. I want him to try and get Lance back, brainwashed or not. I want Lance to admit and just pour his feelings out, messily crying and saying things about how no one cared about him on the team. I want everyone to feel so guilty they acted like that to Lance. I want all of this. I want everyone to apologize and say what they like about Lance, different things, things to reassure Lance that he is needed and absolutely loved by everyone there.
