i work really hard on them too

What depression is really like:

•caring about your grades but not enough to do anything about them

•thinking about suicide more than graduating

•considering suicide whenever any problem arises

•tired

•no motivation

•no energy

•walking is so hard

•sometimes even talking is too much work because you’re so god damn tired

•laying in bed for hours because you’re too tired to move

•feeling nothing but sometimes everything

•knowing you’re not alone but still feeling alone

•that constant mindset of, “Who cares? I wont be around much longer anyways.”

•wishing to be left alone, while also wishing for people to stay

•never believing you’re good enough

•always putting yourself down

•never planning to far ahead in time

•fake smiles, fake laughs

•long showers because that’s you’re little moment of escape

I had all and then most of you
Some and now none of you
I don’t know what I’m supposed to do

Dating Someone With Borderline Personality Disorder

by Darian Rehder (someone who has BPD) 

Things to Understand: 

1.
Their moods change a lot. This is not your fault most of the time. They just feel a lot, and when they’re attached to someone it can make their feelings stronger. It doesn’t mean that they feel all those things about you all the time. 

2. They probably think you’re going to leave them about every day, sometimes more often. If they ask you if you still like them, it’s because they honestly don’t know if you still do. They need to hear it often.

3. If they get randomly angry in the middle of something that you don’t think needs that kind of response, it is usually because something has triggered them. Learn what triggers the person you’re with, so you can both work to prevent it. 

4. Because they feel intense emotions, they also feel love and happiness at large proportions. This is great, because it means they really appreciate their relationships! 

5. Their minds are often on the most emotionally simulating things in their lives, because emotions this strong are hard to ignore. This means you’re probably on their mind a lot. 

6. They do not want to hurt you, if they truly love you. Sometimes when they get angry or depressed or anxious they feel like they need to hurt you or run away or that they don’t love you. This isn’t true, and they often regret or don’t stand by their emotional breakdowns after awhile. Sometimes immediately. 

Things You Can Do:

1. Validate their emotions. Never call them too emotional, needy, dramatic, intense, etc. even if they call themselves that. 

2. Don’t make promises you can’t keep. Chances are, they really do hold onto your words. 

3. If you are uncomfortable or need a break from them, which is okay, explain it in a way that makes them sure you aren’t going to leave and that you still love them or care about them. 

4. Do something that makes them feel loved and cared for.

5. If they’re in the midst of some negative emotion, don’t say anything judgmental, don’t tell them what to do, and don’t fight with them. This would be a good time to say something reassuring and kind with no judgmental or controlling undertones. If this doesn’t work and it seems to be going in a loop, refer to number three or continue to tell them how important they are to you. 

6. Remember that there are truths to everyone. Your person might feel like something is very sad, and it may not affect you at all. It doesn’t mean either of you are wrong to feel that way. 

7. Spend lots of time with them! Spending time and using your actions is a good way to reassure someone of your love. 

8. Learn what they love and learn what really upsets them. It’s always good to know someone and work to avoid hurting them. They can do this for you too! 

9. Don’t take things to heart. I know this is hard, but when someone with BPD has a breakdown, they often say things that they don’t truly stand by in the end. When they apologize, they often mean it with their whole heart. 

10. NEVER ignore them, unless you absolutely have to. If you can’t talk or don’t want to talk, explain this to them instead of ignoring their messages. When you ignore them, they assume you are going to leave them or that something is wrong. 

Reasons Why Being with Someone Who Has BPD is NOT Bad

1. Their intense emotions are biological, in most cases. It’s the same thing as having less emotions. It is not a bad thing to feel deeply. 

2. They, most likely, love you with all their heart. BPD people have the biggest hearts and really will work to do nice things for you and make you feel loved. 

3. They are most likely loyal as hell, and will put a lot of time and energy into you. 

4. Like any mental illness, BPD is something people do not want to have. This fact will help you remember that they are not deliberately trying to hurt you in any way and really do wish they didn’t have BPD. This is why they ARE NOT ABUSIVE 

5. All relationships need work. Communicating and working together can actually strengthen the bond you two have. 

6. It can be helpful for someone with BPD to have a relationship so they can practice ways to manage their emotions and actions. Chances are, the longer you’re with them, the more comfortable they will be with you. 

7. They’re always there for you too! All people with BPD that I know, including myself, are very good at talking about issues and helping others with problems. If you want to talk, you can count on them to give you all of their effort to help. 

8. Imagine dating someone with no emotions. That’d be probably a lot harder! Appreciate the deepness of your person’s feelings. It can make life a lot easier! 

9. If they are in a relationship with you, it’s probably because they want to be with you. Keep this in mind when they start feeling negatively. 

10. It’s a relationship! That’s always fun. It will have challenges like all relationships, but remembering that you are with someone you love will always make it easier.

i know namjoon gets a lot of acknowledgement for using english to talk to international fans (as well he should), but i also really want to praise the rest of the members too. they may not be fluent but they’re trying so hard to learn even if its just a few words here and there. it honestly makes me so happy and grateful when they use english on the vlive chats or in videos. they don’t even have to do all that, but seeing that they’re so eager to communicate with everyone and the fact that they put in so much work to do so is incredibly heartwarming. i hope they know that all their efforts are genuinely appreciated and that we love them so much for it.

“’Between ‘Star Wars’ and the sequel, I wanted to cover as many bases as possible, to establish my identity as an actor rather than as Han Solo.’ Yet it’s hard to escape the space swashbuckler’s image; the Solo figure is on thousands of lunch boxes and other merchandise. ‘Yeah, I’m on bedsheets now, too; It’s everywhere. I just walk past it. I really don’t relate to it. I’m a little spaced out,’ Ford added, ‘but wait until you talk to Carrie and Mark. They’re a couple of parlor comedians.’ He was right. ‘Parlor comedian?’ Fisher exclaimed. ‘Is that what he said? And Mark agreed? I’ll never work with them again.’“ - Chicago Tribune, June 4, 1978.

I’m really tired of people being hateful towards Kathryn or anyone in Teamiplier. There is literally nothing to hate! She is a strong, intelligent, beautiful woman who carries herself  s o  well. She works so hard and is an indispensable part of this team. I admire and look up to her and I know a lot of other people who do too. Please keep you nasty comments to yourself, no matter how much you dislike her.

The signs as people I know

Aries: super rad and terrible at the same time

Taurus: kinda mean? But in a good way? Like to be friendly

Gemini: dabs unironically. Tries so very hard at everything

Cancer: really nice and smart but also will make a huge deal over everything. Cries alot

Leo: pretty flipping cool. Selfish tho

Virgo: nice but gets too worked up over small things

Libra: nice most of the time. Likes to be center of attention. Gets back together with their ex too much

Scorpio: aries 2.0 this time with more sass

Sagittarius: chill as fuck but also needs to stand up for themselves more

Capricorn: dick 75% of the time. Thinks no one likes them the other 25% (I still like them tho)

Aquraius: needs to stop flaking

Pisces: needs to chill and learn they don’t need a significant other to be happy

perszeron  asked:

Hello!! what kind of exercises would you recommend for learning anatomy? I really love how you are able to twist bodies and build forms with keeping them detailed. I'm very curious how did you study to be able to do that!

whats up guys im toiek and i still have no clue how to explain the way i work 2k17

i constantly try to break down the body into simpler shapes and imagine everything in 3D forms ><

ive been drawing for yrs so dont be too hard on yourself!! iv drawn thousands of bodies so the most important part is to use ref and get STARTED!!! dont be afraid to mess up bc thats how you learn ! good luck

lots of figure draws! lots of anatomy studies of individual parts! copy pics of bodies out of magazines, study the way people move IRL. just keep drawing tons of people.

again sorry i dont really know how to explain things well !

I wish people would stop calling kihyun ‘snake’, ‘satan’ or whatever. this joke is really becoming annoying and people will only see kihyun as 'a bad person’. he actually is very very sweet and caring, he is literally like an angel. he always does everything to make monbebes and his members happy. he likes joking around with the members, he wakes them up in the morning and nags them while cleaning like an actual mom. he studies at university while doing promotions and i think this is really admirable. he also started improving his english in order to communicate with international fans. he always works hard to show us an awesome performance and it’s obvious that his dancing skills have improved. he got a lot more confident about himself too and this is great! kihyun is an open-minded and amazing person with a big heart so I hope people will start giving him a lot of respect and realize how great he is

Please everyone vote for Monsta X

I’m literally begging you, I don’t care if you’re part of their fandom or not, they’re working really hard and monbebes are too and really we need all the help we can get after Youtube fucked us up….

Please, specially if your favs have already had their first win, this guys haven’t and they honestly deserve it so much… please just take one of your votes and give it to them? You don’t have to constantly stream or vote, even if it’s just one it helps a lot!!!

You can find out how to vote here  and here !!!!!!

Also stream their MV here! and here’s a tutorial on how to stream their album on melon!!

Please it only takes a few minutes and can really make a difference ^^

WARNING: LONG POST ABOUT A CARAT’S LOVE FOR SEVENTEEN. IT’S THEIR ANNIVERSARY AND THE FEELS ARE JUST TOO MUCH

I never thought this would happen.

I  never thought I would just  ‘Slip into the Shining life’ 

I never thought I would be a  Carat.

I fist discovered Seventeen with Adore U, their debut. But at that point I had only joined the kpop fandom for a few months and only liked older groups. I thought ‘how can someone Stan young groups?’ And so many of them…. I just learnt the names of Exo and Super Junior, how will I learn them too?!’

Originally posted by indigyu

So I just left it there.

But then…. Mansae came out… And that’s how it all started.

How?

Well I immediately fell in love with Woozi.

Originally posted by hoshijpg

I got interested in him, started reading about him about all his hard work and BAM I found myself accidentally learning all of their names. In fact, Mansae became of e of my FAVORITE songs ever. But I didn’t Stan yet. Yet, I told myself that if I love the next comeback I will Stan.

Originally posted by kimbapandkpop

And so pretty u came out and i thought… oh i dont like this (well not really).

Originally posted by amillionwon

The music video was just absolute nothing and I was so disappointed. But soon, I saw the live showcase and realised…. I love, love, LOVE 'Pretty U’.  It’s such a great song. It’s just that that bad music video engulfed the song, depriving us of its goodness.

Originally posted by charmsome

And thus I became a Carat.

And soon Very Nice came out, 

Originally posted by amillionwon

then Boom Boom and with Boom Boom came one of my FAVORITE albums… Ever.

Originally posted by sneezes

And now Don’t Wanna cry came out, with an album that I will I will love more than the going Seventeen one

Originally posted by wonnhao

(In fact, everyone in 17 is my bias. Woozi is THE bias but the other 12 are biases. yes, it does sound weird.)

Anyway, enough about my journey.

*****************

So what is it about seventeen that makes them so special?

And honestly it’s everything.

The vocals are fantastic, the rap is great, the dances epic and the personalities…. Even more amazing!

These members aren’t content with okay. They aren’t content with just knowing a specific skill. They are always willing to learn, improve, strive forward.

Originally posted by giantgyu

You would think that the hip hop unit would remain simply well… Hip hop. They would rap and dance. However, not this hip hop unit. This hip hop unit also works hard on their singing skills. We heard them all sing, we heard them all improve and even in their latest title track, Vernon and Scoups are singing. They participate in writing lyrics, in telling their own stories and emotions and in this sense they participate in communicate with the fans and generally everyone willing to listen. They are making mixtapes too

Originally posted by yooncheoly

This is the Hip Hop Unit

Originally posted by stanformeanie

(and this is also our hip hop unit)

You would think the performance unit is called that because all they can do is dance. Nop. This performance unit works on so many other things. All can sing,mother youngest can also rap, while the two Chinese members keep improving their Korean, writing lyrics and even having their own song. You’d think that they are just execute a nice choreo sent to them by someone. Well, the choreography leader works hard to also help create the choreography, creating key points and amazing dances with Input from others.

You’d think the vocal unit  would say, ok we debuted. We are also very passable so let’s just stay this way. No man the improvement is tremendous. I’m just two years this vocal unit has done the unimaginable. Yes, Seungkwan and Seokmin were always the strongest members vocally but even then, now they are heavenly. Jeonghan and Joshua who were the least…  Impactful in the unit in terms of vocal strength now have amazing high notes, they try falsettos and all that amazing stuff.

Originally posted by saebum

And woozi is being Woozi. Producing and writing album after album, hit after hit without complain. They sing heartbreaking songs with such strong emotions tart even if u do not share the same experiences you will still fell what they feel. You be a boyfriend? Well their songs will make you want to call your imaginary ex.

And when you put all those members together you get Seventeen. An absolutely amazing group that creates amazing songs.

Originally posted by jeonheart

Their journey didn’t start easily with them coming from an almost bankrupt company at that point. Their debut just kept being changed and pushed back. And I cannot even imagine how much stress that must have given these young boys.

I do not want to imagine how much they must have suffered thinking that they are not good enough to debut. I do not want to imagine the hell Pledis put them through, the punishments, the diets etc. 

I don’t not want to imagine how difficult it was for them to not only live with such emotions but not have family right next to the, to cry.

But in spite or because of these hardships Seventeen debuted as such humble people,

It must be so difficult. They are 13 people who always have to see each other. One gets tired of seeing their family so imagine in this case. But it seems like they all have their feet on the ground and can work together. It seems like their experiences made them into one big family that survives together

Originally posted by 12fools

(although they might be a bit too chaotic… RIP trophy)

And I hope that none of them feel any certain burden by themselves. It’s so painful to know the pressure they are in and all the stress they go through. It’s painful to think about the stress the three unit leaders have to go through. The hip hop leader being the overall leader, Hoshi’s choreography has to be on point and addictive and woozi has to stay put with all the writing and all the producing, feeling as if it is his songs that will make or break not simply his own career, but also the career of 12 other people.

Originally posted by hanwooz

And while they don’t want to share the burden with Carats in order not to hurt us, i feel like it would be easier to share.after all, many  supporting and splitting the burden is easier than for one person to have the whole stress buffet.

Originally posted by seugcheol

The members are hopeful there for each other and we, though not directly, are here for them too. Whether it is by attending a concert, buying their albums or simply by listening to their stories and music we hope to show Seventeen that we are here for them, that we love and cherish them.

Originally posted by junhoontrash

Seventeen always talks about how they feel like they have to return the fans 

Originally posted by indigyu

Love and how they feel like they haven’t yet. But I feel like it’s the opposite. I feel like we Carats want to return the love they give us instead. After all, they work so hard for Carats, making amazing pieces of art. They keep talking about just how much carats mean to them but they have no idea just how much they mean to us.

These 13 amazing, beautiful, talented guys have proven themselves in unimaginable ways.

I hope that they realise just how much they mean to us. Just how happy they make us daily be it through their music, Instagram post or just knowing that Seventeen exists, even though we probably don’t deserve a group as humble and as fantastic as them.

Originally posted by unrreality

They don’t deserve the world.

No they deserve so much more. Not even saying ’ they deserve the universe’ see,s to be enough.

So Seventeen happy anniversary. Keep growing, be healthy, both physically and mentally. Keep improving, keep doing what makes you happy.

Originally posted by yoikyuu

And just know that we Carats are right here. We might not be able to always wipe your tears but we will try our hardest to always do so.

We might not be able to physically help you stand, to lend you a hand but we will always try to do so in other ways.

We might not be able to always help relieve your stress, your pain, your fears but we will always try our hardest to show our presence and to show you that you do not have to be perfect for us. That we love you just like that. To us you are already perfect.

Also let’s give Seventeen a win(if not more) with this amazing comeback!

What I learnt after losing 20kg in 3 months

1. It always starts on a high note but the key thing is to keep it going.

You see someone losing a lot of weight and suddenly you are so inspired and pumped to reach your ideal weight, or you realise that you have put on a significant amount of weight and decide to crash diet. It could even be for an upcoming important event. Usually this inspiration will last for a week or two, after which you start to give yourself a little more allowance, this is where most people fall back to where they were. It happened to me countless times.

You have to want it bad enough.

2. You have to be consistent.

Losing weight is hard af, but the important thing is to be consistent. This is what I did:

- take weekly progress photos (whenever I see how my body changes week by week I’m motivated to push on)

- weigh in weekly (I know how easy it is to be obsessed with the scale)

- follow inspiring people (this helps you more than you think)

- whenever I feel lazy to work out, which happens almost every single day, I tell myself this: ‘if you get out there and do what you have to for 30mins, you are one step closer to your goal. If not, the time will pass anyway even if you’re scrolling through Facebook.’

3. Workout

I started with swimming because it was the easiest. You don’t sweat as much, it’s easy on your knees, and it burns a shit load of calories.

After some time, I switched over from swimming to cycling HIIT on my stationary bike. After which I started doing blogilates’s PIIT28, and started hitting the gym after that.

What I’m trying to say is, change up your activities once in a while! Add some variation to your workout by keeping things interesting and you will look forward to it.

My best friend got me out of my comfort zone. I have been so unfit all my life that I wasn’t able to complete even a 2.4km jog. She dragged me along for a run and I fell in love with jogging. To be fair it happened about 6 weeks after I started working out.

It doesn’t get easier, you just get better!

You only need 30mins a day to complete your daily workout. Choose one workout, be it jogging or HIIT, and just do it!

No matter how tired I am, I make sure to get my 30mins in. Sometimes I impress myself with my determination.

4. Moral support

You’re committed to your goals and are working hard towards it. We all know it gets lonely sometimes. Motivate a friend to do the same! Motivate each other when things get tough or the scale is not budging. I’m lucky to have my BFF on this journey together with me.

Even for those who discourage you or those who once called you fat, you got to have the fire in you to make a change and prove them wrong!

Do it for yourself, your love ones. I know you can. I have fallen off the wagon many times too. But the lower you fall, the higher you will fly. Believe in yourself. I promise you, once you start believing, everything will fall in place. There will not be success without failure. You will get there sunshine. One day you will shine. You just got to start believing in yourself and start working damn hard towards your goal.

Old saying but pushes me a lot: 
it’s never going to be easy but it’s going to be SO worth it.

5. You didn’t gain it overnight, don’t expect to lose it in a month.

Don’t be demoralised just because people ain’t noticing the changes. Don’t beat yourself up.

I gave myself 6 months to reach my goal weight. 7kg more to go! Yay!

6: Your boobs/butt will shrink, there might be loose skins/ stretchmarks if you lose weight too fast.

What I did for boobs and butt:

Do planks and squats every day. Yes every day. It helps firms your boobs and squats give your flat booty a lift. 

I learnt this the hard way. Losing 50kg in a year 2 years ago definitely tested my skin’s elasticity. I researched ways to reduce the appearance of stretch marks since the only way you eliminate them is through a laser surgery.

Loose skins and stretchmarks are tricky. I tried everything so I can’t pinpoint what worked and what didn’t.  But it reduced the appearance of stretchmarks and my skin doesn’t look too loose either.

What I did:

- Drink lots of water (it really works!)

- Dry brushing

- Body scrubs (if you ask me I would say coffee scrub, I didn’t start selling it for no reason)

- Bio oil

- Clarins body tonic oil

- Weight training/resistance training                        

7. Relationship with food

Many asked me what meal plans do I follow or do I have certain calorie restrictions.

I have to clarify that I’m not going for a hot lean body hence this method might not work for you if you are going for that.

I do not follow any specific meal plans. I did many times in the past and tried countless meal plans including Herbal life, natroslim or even master cleanse diet. I’m not saying that all these doesn’t work, they do. You will see yourself losing weight, but it isn’t sustainable.

I eat whatever I want now but I control the portions strictly. I cut out sugar drinks too. Don’t underestimate the calories you are taking in as well, it could be the reason why you are not seeing results.

Learn to say no when being offered food (who does that?!). It’s not easy to say no to the piece of chocolate your best friend got for you, but it’s even harder burning it off later during your workout. If you didn’t plan to eat it, don’t. Save it for another day.

There are days when I have peanut butter toast in the morning, fish soup for lunch and economic rice without any rice (just the meat and vege side dishes) for dinner.

But there will also be days where I crave fried chicken. I order them without sides and go without sugar drinks.

Sometimes I live on ban mian (Singapore-style noodles with mince pork soup) without finishing the noodles. Or some days I have fruits before going to bed.

I try to keep my calorie intake within 1500. I don’t feel starved at all and I eat whatever I want in moderation. It keeps me content to keep going.

You are what you eat. If you know the food you are craving for is unhealthy, have it in small amounts. We all know what happens when we over indulge. A healthy journey consists of 80% diet and 20% exercise.

Food that will help you in your journey:

- Water, just drink enough water.

- Unsweetened green tea, yes you’ve heard this 2 million times. But it works.

- Fruits: Papayas, Watermelons, Apples, Bananas, Lemons and Kiwis.

- Needless to say lots of vegetables

Try new recipes like cauliflower rice. Or replace potato chips with kale chips.

There won’t be any food to avoid in my list because I genuinely believe in moderation.

8. Curbing cravings

You just had dinner but you are craving for dessert. We all know it’s not acceptable to do it every day.

I’d go for a jog if I were you. The cravings for unhealthy food usually subside after a run. You’ll burn 150 calories with 30 minutes of jogging, but it takes 1 serving of potato chips to gain it back. Is it worth it? You be the judge.

If not I’ll find an alternative like yogurt or fruits to curb the cravings.

The last method is to take off your clothes in front of the mirror and stare at your body. Tell me if you still want that tiramisu after that.

Many times we eat not because we need it but because we want it. A treat is only a treat if you have it once in a while. 

9. Shitty days

Just recently I broke down and cried just because I felt fat. I felt like the ugliest/biggest girl in the world and I just wanted to hide away from the world. There will be days where you feel like shit and nothing you do makes sense to you.

I allowed myself to cry and tell myself that I’m not good enough.

Sometimes we have to embrace our emotions instead of hiding them. Only when we acknowledge what we are feeling, will we be able to fix what’s really broken inside.

After my emotional battle, I pick myself up and continue whatever I was doing. I fixed what was going on inside and stayed focused. People around me saw results. I saw my results. I deserved every single bit of it because I worked hard for it.

Happiness is a choice. You are how you feel about yourself.

Don’t give up on something just because of the time or the difficulty to achieve it. The time will pass anyway. If you don’t work on yourself, who’s going to do it.

I learnt to love myself for every stretchmark, cellulite and scar that’s on me. At the same time, I do my best to be a better version of myself.

10. Take a break If you are tired, not quit.

Lastly, regardless how many times you fail, as long as you get up and try again, you will succeed in the end.

Getting healthy is not a quick fix, it’s a lifestyle. There will be days you feel like eating fast food and not working out. But as long as you get back on your feet the next day, I promise that everything will work out.

Never ever give up on yourself and your body, because you are the only one living in it.

Hope this helps!! Happy 2017! Keep on rocking! :) Let’s embrace 2017 together and achieve whatever you need to acheive!

So I’m done Motorcity, and it hurts everytime I finish it. So much effort, hard work, and determination went into making it and Disney took it away from them. They can’t get anyone to revive the show because Disney is too stubborn to sell the rights and I.P.

I just wish it lasted longer, but it only got one season. It’s really a shame that it didn’t get more attention. Three petitions were made to try and get disney to do something, but they did nothing.

Motorcity may be over, but it’s far from forgotten. An old animator of the show runs a blog here on tumblr to this day since Motorcity started @peopleofmotorcity 

If you’re thinking about giving Motorcity a chance then don’t hesitate. Look it up and you’ll find it. There’s a little video above, made by the team after the show ended, to show you what you’re in for.

Kel!!! I love you and I need your help URGENTLY!!!! Well, it's not that urgent BUT I have a question! How is it that you use bright colors from completely different families right next to or on top of e/o and still make them work??? I've been trying to do that, but it just looks garrish and wrong and doesn't blend well. :'( All my drawings look boring and monotonous. I really wanna liven them up with some brightness but don't know how!!

HELLO ANON!! ILU TOO!! I’m sorry for the late reply I WASN’T SURE HOW TO ANSWER THIS bc I don’t really have a specific method of using colors?? I kinda just pick what I think looks good and run with it, so it’s a little hard for me to explain the process. THIS IS GENERALLY what I do though, esp the transition color bit: 

It’s also good to keep values in mind if you want to avoid overly muddy color schemes

and OFC this is just how I PERSONALLY DO MY COLORS it’s definitely not the ‘RIGHT’ WAY BC THINGS aren’t 30293 colors in real life SO YEAH!! These aren’t hard rules either, sometimes I use desaturated shadows and sometimes my drawings have a v limited value range.. I honestly just make things up as I go a lot so JUST TAKE WHAT YOU THINK MIGHT HELP AND TWEAK IT AS U WISH!!

anonymous asked:

what are your sexuality headcanons for the paladins?

Ehhhhhh, hmmmm, let’s see… I mean, I support all kinds of ships in the fandom that probably break my headcanons, so this in no way implies that I disagree with other ships. These are just my, personal, headcanons for sexuality and… other things. Because I went overboard, as usual -  

Lance - Bisexual (obv). Biromantic. I think he probably has some issues expressing his attraction to men, however. Not because he’s unaware of it, but because he has a “Han Solo” type image he wants to portray to those he wants to impress and so it’s easier to stick to only flirting with ladies. That is, until he’s confident and comfortable enough to express how he really feels to his new “family.” Lance is, in my opinion, a very, very secretive person that uses his typical attitude as a sort of smoke and mirrors idea to convince those he meets otherwise. Because insecurity. Also, I think Lance kind of shifts between being quite masculine and quite feminine when he feels comfortable in doing so. I don’t think he suffers from gender dysphoria, but I don’t think he allows his gender to dictate how he presents himself (again, once he feels comfortable enough with the people around him. Dat insecurity and desire to impress be gettin’ in the way). For example, back home with his family and in his neighborhood and where he’s most at ease, he’s more than happy to wear makeup. Or, say, during Cuban festivals like the Havana Carnival, you know damn well he’s wearing one of those more revealing getups with the fancy headdresses and all the beaded decorations and flashy sleeves and feathers, etc, etc. YOU CANNOT TAKE THIS HEADCANON AWAY FROM ME! GIVE ME HAVANA CARNIVAL LANCE! NOW! 

Keith - Gay. Super gay. As gay as they come. SO gay. Homoromantic. I also headcanon Keith as being somewhat hyper-romantic, meaning that he really, really desires a romantic relationship (far more so than anything sexual). Like, he’s the type that forms feelings hard and fast and without mercy, and so he tries really, really hard not to give in, but it never works. He’s more apt to keep such things bottled up tight than ever express them, however–too afraid of rejection. 

Pidge - Asexual. Aromantic. Pidge is far more interested in platonic bonds and values her family/friends more than anything. Which is why it’s so important that she find her family. I’d imagine she has a hard time making friends as well, so what strong bonds she does have are very, very important to her support system. She has anti-social tendencies, but is very dependent on the people she does love to be there and love her in return. I also imagine she suffers from gender dysphoria, and that–though it’s something that doesn’t really affect her position as part of Voltron any–it wears on her a bit. It’s clear from the space mall episode, when she couldn’t decide which bathroom to go in, that how she’s presenting herself–at least in public–is stressing her a bit. I think she’s comfortable enough with Team Voltron not to worry about it, but something inside her is uncertain. Whether this leads to her making a transition or identifying as gender fluid isn’t something I’ve decided yet, however.   

Hunk - Panromantic and asexual. I dunno why I love the idea of asexual Hunk so much–maybe because it’s interesting to headcanon both him and Pidge that way due to how different they are. I like the idea of romantically distant Pidge, who still needs all her platonic relationships, while Hunk loves romance and wants it and all the frills that come along with it. But he’s also patient and doesn’t really go looking for it? Like, he knows it’ll come someday and he’s just waiting for that perfect person(s). Until then, he’s more than happy to give cuddles and love to his friends. I also think Hunk would do very well with polyamorous relationships and would be more than willing to be in one/want one. And though he has no active interest in sex himself, he’d be more than happy to participate if it made his partner happy. He’s not sex-repulsed (as Pidge probably is), he just doesn’t care one way or another.   

Shiro - Demisexual and demiromantic. Shiro partially takes a while to warm up to people because of the trauma he’s been through, but also because he’s always been very focused elsewhere and so he’s never thinking about romance or sex at the forefront. When it does hit him, though, it’s deep and burning and certain. He’s the kind of person that loves someone his whole life, even if they don’t love him in return, and so even though he may not end up with that person, a flame for them will always exist inside him, even if it is subdued. That’s just how deeply he feels things–it leaves that much of an impact on him. But, like I said, it does take a special kind of person and a lot of time to get him to that point. 

Allura - Gray-sexual and demiromantic. Allura has a lot more important things to worry about than sex and relationships. I also kind of headcanon that sex wasn’t a huge part of Altean culture anyway. Allura feels sexual attraction sometimes, but it’s not hard for her to control, nor is it distracting. That doesn’t mean she can’t be a sexual person, just that it’s not something that’s overpowering unless she lets it overpower her at her own volition. I would also imagine that she takes a while to romantically warm up to people, even if she’s platonically very friendly. If she’s going to enter into a romantic relationship, it needs to be with someone she’s partners with–both romantically and otherwise. Someone she can work with, but who can also manage themselves and offer things productive to the relationship. Allura would need–I think above anything–an efficient relationship. Which is why this determination would have to be solidified before romance was introduced or even considered. 

Coran - I… don’t know, lol. I usually headcanon Coran as being very dedicated to the royal family and so his personal life wasn’t something he considered important. Which I guess would make him a kind of asexual and aromantic. But I also imagine that Alteans are very good at compartmentalizing, so even if he was attracted to someone/in love, he wouldn’t allow it to get in the way of his duties. Therefore, I consider Coran’s personal life to, well, be none of my business, hahahaha!

“Isn’t in kind of unrealistic, statistically, that all the Voltron members be part of the LGBTQ+ community?”

No. If it weren’t for the gender and sexual stereotypes that permeate human society, I theorize that diversity among such things would be far more wide-spread. Not only that, but each lion represents a different type of person and I think it’s perfectly reasonable, therefore, that each paladin show variances all over the spectrum, not just in their personalities. They are five pieces that come together to make a whole, so like they represent different races and personality types, other things about them should show differences as well. Which means that, yes, I do get slightly annoyed at the lack of female representation on the team. What little representation women have isn’t enough, and Hunk or Shiro would have made really good female characters without it altering the story one bit. 

ANYWAY! Hope that sums it up :D
