ok so i don’t have a lot of evidence on this considering i don’t have screenshots and i really need to binge voltron again but im making this off of pure memory so hear me out ok? im porbably looking way too deep into this lmao
I think Lance feeling like he’s a seventh wheel is completely justified.
Alright so everyone has had that moment where you make a joke and everybody just stay silent like it isnt funny, right? Well if you think about it, Lance has those moments every time he makes a joke or tries to lighten the mood, all of the time. Nobody really laughs at his comments or even pays much attention to them in the first place, only gets glares in return.
Now clearly, Lance usually cracks a joke for comic relief, but apparently no one else finds it funny. For example, he comes out of the pod after healing and everyone is happy to see him. But as soon as he starts talking, people just groan and act like, “Oh, it’s that Lance, he hasn’t changed one bit,” and act clearly annoyed. Even his idol, Shiro, acts fed up with his shit- which in some cases is justified, but most times, it shouldnt matter, he’s just trying to be funny lmao. Lance probably feels, unwanted, out of place, like he is the fifth wheel because no one really accepts him, and everyone finds him annoying.
Its not even just with Lance’s sense of humor, too.
People always think his ideas are stupid.
For example, the iconic scene where he keeps Keith from running straight into the danger that could get both of them killed, he suggests his alternate idea. Keith- who usually thinks Lance’s ideas are dumb, automatically jumps to the conclusion that his idea is going to be. Before he can argue, though, he works it out and sees that maybe Lance’s alternate route is a good idea.
People disagree with the way he wants to complete something, in season 2, Lance comes up with the idea to form Voltron in a situation and everyone vouches against it, however 30 seconds later, they end up forming Voltron, like he said, anyway.
Another reason, people also think little of him, they underestimate him, and that all starts with the Garisson. He was told that the only reason he ever got at his fighter pilot class was because his rival was kicked out of school, and without that he shouldnt have even been there. Again, he feels out of place, and like he doesnt belong. Then, his idol, his hero, Shiro, shows up, and when he finally feels like he has a purpose, like he could accomplish something amazing, but then Keith shows up. Even then, he doesnt give up, he is like “um excUSE ME BITCH I CALLED SAVING SHIRO FIRST” And once again, he doesnt want his rival that always beat him to do that once again.
And again in season two, there’s clearly favoritism happening between Keith and Shiro, and Lance is jealous of course. Like, he finally gets to meet and work with his idol, and when he wants to go with Shiro on a mission, SHiro chooses Keith over him. Man, I wonder why he’s so overdramatic about it. Its not like he was treated the same damn way at the gaRISSON OR ANYTHING NAHH
No, but clearly, he has an inferiority complex, especially when it comes to keith, because he knows hes better than him in every way.
People in the show also deny that he has any good skills, and even he himself starts to believe it, when sorta venting to the yupper. (i die a little inside whenever i see it)
I loved it when shiro gave him praise for once because it was specifically for him and not directed at the whole time. It was good job LANCE
And honestly the pride on his face was so heartwarming like omg thank you shiro for ackowledging him
im probably going way off track but anyway
daily dose of what its like in my mind 24/7 lmao
I hope in season 3 they kinda bring his insecurities up again as a sort of conflict i mean- with Keith possibly becoming Black Paladin, Lance is probably gonna be hella jealous and im sure thats gonna instigate a fight between them, and now theres not really a mediator. So. Fantastic…..
Guys i feel like a lot fo stuff goes right back to shiro, how lance probably aspires to be like him, or be good in his eyes and therefore be good for the rest of the team but hes having this inferiority complex because he feels unappreciated. Like hes just that annoying guy they dont really need and they could replace him if they wanted to, and keeping all of those thoughts hidden or masked by this confident facade is like
lance youre gonna break at some point
I hope lance gets the recognition and the acknowledgement he deserves in season 3 i swear he better not be tossed under the rug.
let’s hypotize for a second that ‘jealousy thy name is keith’ refers to lance thinking keith is jealous of allura but in reality he likes lance. funny situation that could happen if lance decided to confront keith about it:
l: hey man… i figured out you know
k: *sweating nervously* i have no idea what you’re talking about
l: oh come on….i saw those looks™ i’m telling you i know what’s up
k: *sighing* ok i guess there’s no point in denying it, i was gonna confess someday anyway
l: aww i knew it! now we’re gonna be in competition for this too!
l: you know….flirting and stuff
k: *blushing* i’m pretty sure you would always win at that anyways
l: *still completely oblivious* thanks bud! I really appreciate it
keith, before walking away: you know when all of this is over and we come back to earth we should go on a date
lance, turning red and finally realising the mistake: wait what
To be honest, I really love daydreaming, I really do, but there are times when I just look at my old friends that I dont hang out with anymore and my classmates having fun together and think, “Why can’t I do that?”
I look at them taking selfies together, making silly group names, going to a mall together, and sometimes I wonder, “Why can’t I have that?”
Sometimes I look at my classmates who are genuinely funny and can make everyone laugh, have a ton of charisma, good at maths and science, I think, “Why can’t I be like that?”
I like being alone; I can daydream as much as I want, I can listen to my music without being bothered, I can spend my day offs without anyone asking me to go anywhere - I like that.
But seeing all of those people having fun, I also want that.
There are plenty of Dreamworks movies out there that never got the recognition they deserved. Prince of Egypt. Megamind. But there’s one that (at least in my opinion) is absolutely criminally neglected.
Rise Of The Guardians.
No one I know thought much of this movie from the (very few) previews it got. An emo-kid looking Jack Frost? Bo-ring. OK maybe the Santa looks cool. But giant bipedal Easter Bunny? Ew.
But this movie is SO GOOD. And I don’t mean just because it’s funny. It’s actually NOT a comedy, which for animated Dreamworks films is something of a rarity these days. There’s humor, yes, but it’s not a central theme.
I can’t think of any other kids’ movie that deals with the traditional Western mythology figures (Santa, Tooth Fairy, Jack Frost, etc) the way ROTG does. They’re literal beings in the movie, yes, whose power is linked to childrens’ belief in them… but they are also concepts. The movie is very clear about that. Santa outright says he is “wonder”. The Easter Bunny is hope and new beginnings.
Jack Frost, the main character… he’s laughing in the face of fear. Specifically the fear of death in winter. Turning the cold, life-threatening ice and snow into something fun so that children can live without fear. I mean come on, that’s great!
On top of all that, these are just… great characters with wonderful backstories. Some are only hinted at - but oh my god, scratch the surface and it’s beautiful.
Not to mention the art is GORGEOUS. The details, the designs… everything about this movie is just rich with visual interest.
…Sometimes I still fantasize about Korra getting a scene where she turns into Aang, like we got scenes of Aang turning into Roku and Kyoshi.
And like, Tenzin could have ended this obviously would have been very intense scene with a softness and a “Hi, Dad.”
And Aang could look at him, Avatar state leave, and BAM!, Korra again, and she passes out and oops no one caught her, and ends everyone sort of being useless, bit a of a funny end I JUST THINK ABOUT IT A LOT OK
Oh fuck those eggs are not sitting well, I think to myself as we sit around after breakfast. Joker’s gotten up, showered and dressed, before we reconvene to discuss where to go from here. Arkham was in shambles and God knows the finger was going to get pointed at me for blowing it, but surely by now they know this is not how I roll?
“CC?” Joker pulls my attention back to him, looking to me confused, “You ok, doll?”
“Mmm, my stomach is upset, anyone else’s eggs taste funny?” I ask the room. Everyone shakes their head no so I shrug my shoulders, before returning to the issue at hand. When Yari walks in.
“Honey, we got a problem. GCPD is out for you, they’re loyal hound Officer Gordon is back in town and isn’t too happy with what’s gone down. He’s coming to haul your ass in.” Well that puts a dampener on my mood… I sit in silence trying not to hurl my stomach contents up with a pout on my lips.
“You’re not going in.” Joker says, running his hand along my thigh in a show of comfort and support, taking a massive inhalation through my nose, I let it out as I speak.
“They don’t have anything on me, do they Yari?” He sits on the desk in front of J and I. He shakes his head.
“No sweetie, those security cam’s didn’t work allll night.” He tucks a piece of hair behind my ear, “You ok CC? You looking a bit green around the gills there.” He queries and it’s enough to make me realise these eggs are not staying down.
“Nope!” Is all I manage before I do a mad dash to the bathroom, where breakfast makes its reappearance. I hear Yari behind me laughing, saying he’s got this, before he comes in to hold my hair out of the way.
I recently updated a family portrait commission that I did in high school.
This was a nice opportunity to see how Ive progressed after 4 years. It was funny to look closely at old work and notice the choices I made. Like ok anatomically what the heck was I thinKING. But I just didnt know any better at the time. Gotta keep going and keep improving and hopefully after another few years I’ll be even farther along.
I find it funny when people will tell kids of mixed ethnicity’s to choose one ethnicity over the other but will tell bi/pansexual that it’s ok to like both/all genders and there’s no reason to choose.
How about before you tell that precious mixed baby that they need to choose, instead of celebrating themselves to the fullest, maybe you should a) look at yourself and b) realize that whatever ethnicity a person chooses to be is none of your goddamn business then c) log off and think about your double standards.
Focus on yourself and your culture and sexuality and stop intruding on other people celebrating who they are. Ok?
