Sit down lads and listen to my tired fueled rant on why Steven Yeun is a pure man and loves Keith!
So, its been bugging me for a while (especially with the new season just being released) about the fact that almost all the voice actors promote the show and how much slack my boi Steven gets! We all know how much Jeremy Shada, Bex T-K, Josh Keaton, Hell, even AJ whos new to the team go full out and are full of thoughts and words to say about Voltron and their charterers, SO, I am here today, ignoring every piece of homework i have due four weeks ago to tell y’all why none of the slack he gets is deserved!
Way back when in may of this year, a local (ish) convention guested Steven Yeun as a guest, and even though I may be a Lance stan before a human being, I cried cuz I loved this boi since the walking dead.
I had saved all my $$ just to get this boi’s autograph (on top of picking one up for my friends sister) and waited in his line for almost 2 hours just so i could be first. And as I sat in line, i noticed that the growing amount of walking dead fans where starting to get extremely high (i don’t think a single person in that line even KNEW what Voltron even was!).
So, b/c i am smart and don’t want to make a rash choice, i sneak a pick at the photos he has lined up before hand to see if they had any rad Voltron for him to sign. and OF COURSE there is no Voltron or Keith anywhere on that table. But Worry not fellow nerds! I did the smart thing and printed off a picture of Keith at home! But my printer is shitty and the quality wasn’t the best
So after almost two hours and him being 20 minutes late ( i could never hate, my boi was on his lunch break) the line starts movin. So here i am, about to meet Steven FREAKING Yeun, dressed as Kim Possible (not relevant but anyways) and I have practiced over and over what im gonna say to this man.
“Talk about the Walking Dead, you can do it, tell him you love the walking dead”
So i get up and pay for my autograph, and they let me have two photos and his manager, when he gets to me, tells him that he can only sign one.
NOw, before I got on, my boi looked tired. Like HELLA TIRED. idk what he be doing, but he was doing his best to fake a smile and get through another line.
And when i get up in front of him, I FROZE! like, BItcH, What you DOIN?!?!? anyways, i shake his hand and all i manage to say is
“I loved you in Voltron!”
And the look on his face gave me ten years of my life back! This boi (whose entire autograph photo selection is just walking dead and head shots) hears Voltron, and i saw a smile that was genuine rush over him. And the MOMENT i notice this, I just go back to talking about Voltron with him
Anyways, he signs my friends photo (which was hella aesthetic) and he looks over at my two and i explain to him the deal
“So, heres the thing: i only have enough money for one autograph and you are my favorite character in the walking dead (bitch was already dead at this point too) but I got really sad when there was no Keith photos. SO i printed this out at home and I want you to decide.”
he looks at the two photos and tells me
“heres what we’re gonna do.”
and he reaches for the Keith picture and he starts to sign it. I’m already close to tears at this point, and he is just signing away. And then he glances over at his manager and quickly signs the other one, pushing both towards me before she had time to react and pull the other one away.
ANd at this point i am IN TEARS. Crying in the con, god bless this random lady who gave me a tissue or my makeup would have been a mess.
My friend and I sit down and we look at the pictures and he FUCKING SIGNED THE KEITH PHOTO FROM KEITH!!!! I might be a Lance stan, but jesus fuck do I love Steven Yeun and everything he is!!
And this boi loves Keith! all the stories I heard from others who met him said that when they mentioned Voltron he would become ten times more happy. Steven is a gift and I want nothing but happiness for that man.
Oh, and also…
Stevn Yeun loves Keith, he cares for Voltron, and I will NOT tolerate hate towards him any longer!

hey guys i am desperately broke and took a pretty big gamble by buying a bunch of blankets with the intention of making SENSORY FRIENDLY pants! they are all $10, regardless of size and color. I have only made a fifth of my money i need for rent and food this month and i have no money in the bank really left after all my health problems. i am unemployable because of a degenerative back disease and bad anxiety. sewing really helps calm me down and these pants are the only pants i can wear without being uncomfortable. They are 100% cotton, warm and soft, with a waistline that is basically invisible sensory-wise. Please reblog and help me out I’m seriously in the hole. I am autistic and need help, please.
I can’t wait to live alone and have a space all to myself. I can’t wait to decorate and organize that space to my liking and my liking only. I can’t wait to not have other people’s food in my fridge. I can’t wait to blast my music not having to think about someone in the next room being bothered by it. I can’t wait to only have to spend money on me and my needs alone. Call me selfish but it sounds luxurious I can’t wait.
So @funkyhunkygrunklestans and I are planning on moving in together into our first apartment, in the Portland, Oregon area in the summer. One problem tho: I’m currently residing in Iowa. And traveling over 1,500 miles/ 26 hour drive with only a bedroom worth of stuff, and a cat, I’m gonna need some help.
With this move, I would be in a better place, surrounded by supportive friends and I would no longer have to feel shitty due to my family’s toxic nature. Plus I would have a better job opportunity than what’s here in Iowa.
So here’s the nitty-gritty:
To cover everything ( Gas, Food on the trip, hotel, etc) is going to cost about
$3,500 to $4500
The reason for the prices is because if I ship my stuff instead of getting a uhaul trailer, and getting a hitch installed unless i get a vehicle with a hitch, its going to cost more. But I feel like it would be safer than just adding a hitch and then having it fall off during the trip (this is only a fear but still).
Right now I have a some money but that’s going towards buying a cheap car. And then once I get the car, any of my paychecks I get from nowish to June will be going towards this move.
Starting next week I’m going to be holding commission art streams everyday. And during the time I don’t have commissions, I’ll be drawing whatever. The time I want to do streams are between 12 pm to 4 pm and 6 pm to 9 pm (these hours might change due to scheduling but I’ll make a post about it/tweet about it if it does happen)
Another option is donations. And to make it a little fun, no matter how much is donated, I’ll draw a little doodle with your username (unless its anonymous) and have it on a “wall of fame” type of deal”. However if you donate a lot (as in over $80) Let me draw you something more than just a doodle.
To donate, send the amount youre going to donate to my paypal which is email@example.com
Also, if you want, if you want to help us have some essential stuff for our soon to be apartment, you can check out this nifty Apartment wishlist. Its has things we need like a crockpot, towels, strainers, lights, bookshelf etc.
If you can help me out with moving, and help us out with setting up, that would be super great ;w;
3/10 EDIT: I’VE ADDED A PAGE TO SEE WHAT PRICES IN DETAIL, AS WELL LOWER THE GOAL AMOUNT FOR NOW.
