a song rec: Lion - Hollywood Undead (aka the song that screamed VOLTRON to me and now i cant stop listening to it on repeat)
WOAH. buddy….. this is such a cool song for voltron you are right. i love the intensity of it too. it fits really well with everything they’re up against and what’s going on. bc YEAH. it is intense.
Do you see a lion
When you look inside of me?
i actually think that says a lot about the paladins, bc Allura made it clear from the outset that the lions choose their paladins. and this reminds me of keith (sorry guys, everything in my head relates to keith it’s true) bc it’s reminding me of “please no” and how the black lion resonates with keith and chooses him when Shiro isn’t there. it also reminds me of how keith may not necessarily see that he has the qualities to be in the black lion at he has proven he has these attributes and skills - but as to whether he demonstrates that fully with his team in S3 well there’s just so much going on here between the team we really cannot address this in one sweeping statement.
it also makes me think of 04x01. keith is acutely aware of being on the outskirts and the ‘loner’, that is perpetuated by the things said to him. like i said earlier there is this rift between him and the team and that’s honestly on everybody, that includes him. and we also should take into account that’s bc of how he operates based on his past and everything we’ve been told about keith’s situation and dealing with some big things. but in turn, the team don’t know that. HHHHHH there’s just SO MUCH to say on this and so many loopholes like genuinely …. it’s fascinating. i find myself going round and round in circles with this bc i want to try and at least see it from as many sides as i can. and i have a lot to say about this but tbh do i dare on the blue hellsite hahahaha.,,,,,,,,,
anyway, this line arguably also works for Lance, when he talks about stepping back in S3 because he acknowledges that with shiro’s return and Allura coming into voltron it means that they have too many people to operate voltron. so does they see a lion (paladin)? you want your best people out there ect.
ALSO it could relate to shiro in many senses. especially when he doesn’t have a place in voltron itself up until 04x01. like… this is a great parallel woah.
There’s a war inside my head
um…. hello shiro. i love to suffer.
You were born a lion
And a lion you will stay
take lion to mean paladin and you will catch me crying in the club being emo :’))))).
Here’s a story
Of everything we’ll ever be
BUT LIKE THIS IS SO RELEVANT FOR KEITH I SWEAR. bc like i said in some analysis yesterday and earlier today, about how he sees himself and his role in all of this. everything we’ll ever be.
there’s way more to pull out of this but i gotta go offline now!!! someone should make a voltron AMV to this it’d be hella honestly…….. 👀👀👀👀👀
