YES team hug headcanons omg I feel the need to add in my own 2 cents to these because YES
Lance: Lance gives big, warm, bone crushing hugs- he has a lot of Hug Practice™ because of his huge family, all of whom demand hugs upon every encounter. He also tends to give spontaneous hugs in the heat of the moment, but gets flustered and embarrassed by his own actions literally seconds later.
Pidge: Pidge is the Emotional Huger™, in other words, they don’t give hugs out of nowhere, but when sparked by the right reasons their hugs are very heartfelt and genuine. However, because they’re so smol, they often end up with a face full of tummy, which everyone actually thinks is pretty cute. (They also won’t admit it but they love those big extravagant spinning hugs.)
Keith: Does Keith even really understand what a hug is?? Debatable. He’d be the type who doesn’t really give out hugs (and when he does they’d be awkward back-pat types) but surprisingly tends to receive a lot of hugs from others. (”You just… look like you needed a hug,” “What’s that supposed to mean?!”) As such, he’s become pretty good at reciprocating hugs, he just kind of,, sinks in to the other person. (Keith is a cat: confirmed)
Shiro: Shiro gives fabulous power hugs. The kind of hugs that just fill you with strength and determination. It’s like Shiro’s Goodness soaks into your very soul through his hugs. Shiro Hugs™ have often been known to be accompanied by Inspiring Speeches and Sparkling Dad Smiles. No one leaves a Shiro Hug sad. No one.
Allura: Allura hugs tend to be a Happy Huger, she’ll hug someone when overly happy or excited for them, she’s kind of a Mom™. However, Allura also seeks out hugs from others when sad or depressed, she feeds off the warmth and good things that come from a Quality Hug.
Coran: Coran is definitely the octo-hugger, once he latches on you might as well accept that this is your fate. He also tends to impromptu story tell while his victims are trapped in a bear-hug, but no one really minds. Coran’s hugs always leave you feeling more light-hearted and at ease then you were before. (He’s an Uncle. He gives Uncle Hugs™.)
