im actually so proud of this omg

It keeps bothering me that they decided to show that galra shield in Sendak’s ship to the audience through Keith, when they could very well have used Shiro or Allura, people we know has a past with the Galra empire, or even Sendak himself.

Okay, that sounded confusing, so let me try to elaborate. English is not my first language, so it will be a bit hard.

On the first episode, after Shiro and Pidge casually ditched Keith to his own luck on finding Red, we see him running around until he find himself in a… A…

He has two paths to go and doesn’t know which one to take.

You know, this

Now, the composition on this scene is interesting. You have the galra symbol hovering above Keith, who is right in the middle. It’s almost like it is pointing at him. 

Scratch that, the whole scene seems to be pointing at Keith in this one. No matter where you look, the lines take you back to our favorite Red Paladin. 

And then, this happens.

His whole body language changes when he sees it. He straightens his back, his arm falls to his side and I do wish I had HQ screencaps of this moment, but I don’t, so bear with my rushed kisscartoon misery.

And then he actually stares at it.

He stares at it for sometime, and only stops when he hears the galra soldier coming. His whole expression is… I don’t know how to put it. fucking language barriers, dude. If I were to name it anything, it’s almost of somewhat familiarity. 

As if he’s seen it before.

And then we see his expression changes yet again as he hears the soldier approaching and remembers why he’s there.

And not once the galra symbol leaves the screen in this brief moment. It’s always there, pointing at Keith, above Keith, on Keith’s visor…

Now, after three years hearing my teachers saying over and over again that nothing in animation is there just because, that everything was throughout planned to be there and be the way it is, I can’t help but wonder what were dreamworks and studio mir’s intentions with this one.

I mean, there’s the obvious one: to show the viewers one of the shields of the Galra Empire. To know that, whenever this symbol and others similar to this appear, it means that it’s related to the Galra in one way or another.

The thing is… Why do it through Keith, out of all the characters?

They could have done it earlier with Shiro’s flashback, as he remembered that he was in that ship before, at one point of his time as a slave from the galra empire. 

They could have done it with Sendak, since, you know, it’s his fucking ship.

They could have done it even with Allura, when Sendak first contacted the castle, and she could have recognized the symbol from the time Altea was being attacked.

But they made the deliberate choice to do it through Keith’s eyes.

They sat down in a room, discussed over this scene, made the storyboard, and decided that showing a Galra symbol through Keith, going even as far as keeping the reflection on his helmet’s visor when there were very few other times they used reflection to show anything in this show.

And here’s my guess on their not-so-obvious reason on to why they made this choice:

They want us to associate the galra with Keith, even if in the back of our minds.

The last time I saw a show giving this sort of hint was in the really fucking good anime Erased. In the op, for a very brief moment, you see the reflection of the killer in the shattered glass.

It’s not a really obvious reflection, for you still have a hard time associating the face with any named characters before the great and majestically composed reveal. And it lasts not even a second, so, unless you’re an obsessed theorist who lives in a shack in the desert and went through the op frame by frame, you barely notice it.

But is enough for you to make out a black suit, and now it’s imprinted in your mind that you cannot trust the man in the black suit.

SPOILER: And, as it turned out, the only character who used a black suit in a regular basis was the killer.

And just like in Erased they wanted you to associate black suit with the antagonist through the reflection, I feel like Voltron is trying to do something similar in here with Keith.

They aren’t straight out telling us, but they aren’t exactly keeping it from us. At a first glance, it’s just another in between scene before Keith gets to his lion.

But when you put it together with all the other slightly more obvious pieces of evidence…

… I dare to say it’s a quite brilliant hint.

TL;DR: Either Keith is a galra and they want us to associate one of the galra symbols directly to him as a hint, or I’m going completely crazy here.

Authors Note: So I hope you like it (I’m actually kind of proud of the personification in this) and I did have a sirius pun in there (he came padding down the stairs lmao im funny). ENJOY


The rain was falling in sheets. It knocked on the windows, beat the walls and pounded the roof. It was a chilly winter night, but you had forgotten about the potions essay that was due the next day, and were curled up on the floor of the Gryffindor common room, books encircling you as you frantically tried to find the history of Felix felicis.

The rain, falling heavily, was droning in the background, making you agitated and the words on the pages blurrier. A soft padding came down the boys staircase, and a shirtless Sirius Black appeared at the bottom, checking the time on the clock above the door, and said in a slightly teasing tone, “L/N? It’s like 2am what are you doing?”

You groaned and slammed one of the textbooks shut, not in the mood for Sirius Black right now. “I forgot about the potions assignment and-” His eyes widened a little and you managed a small smile, trying to avoid staring at his chest, and said in a singsong voice, “You forget the essay, too, Black? Come on, I’ve finished the first paragraph, but this second one is proving to be very difficult.”

He rushed up the stairs, two at a time, and came running back down a few moments later, already in study mode. “Have you tried that one?” He pointed at a nearby book. You shook your head as he picked it up, skimming through the index.

You worked silently for a while, noticing how every few minutes, the rain decided to pound on the windows with greater force. Everything was fine, it was just rain, you could deal with that. Suddenly, rolling thunder rippled through the air, seeming to bounce of the walls and echo in her mind. A flash appeared outside the window, a bolt of lightning shooting down towards the ground. You felt the fear build up in your chest, bubbling over and rising up through her throat. It strangled you, clouded your mind and blurred your surroundings. Oh no, oh no, oh no.

Sirius had stopped working when he noticed your quill fall to the ground, “Y/N, are you okay?” 

His voice sounded distant, too far away for you to comprehend his words.

You barely noticed your hand quivering, your eyes fixated on the rain against the windows, and on the outside of the building, seeming to cover it like vines, trapping you inside.

Even though you were sitting by the fireplace, the air felt cooler now, gripping onto your skin and refusing to let go. Then, warmth. You felt it on your hand, rushing up your arm and spreading around your body. You looked to where you first felt contact, almost dreamily, and recognised Sirius’ hand gripping yours, his eyes frantic, worried.

It felt like the ice suffocating you had been melted, and, for some reason, you felt better knowing he was right there beside you. You didn’t even notice the tears sliding down your cheeks. 

And then you were in his arms, and he was rubbing your back and whispering, “It’s okay, you’re okay.” He didn’t dare say the words It’s just rain, because it wasn’t - to you, it was fear and darkness, it was death, and it terrified you. 

Sirius didn’t pull away. Instead, it felt like he held you closer, letting you rest your head on his chest. Your cheeks were wet, and you felt exhausted and finally drifted to sleep, to the beat of the rain on the windows. 


The next morning, you awoke on one of the couches of the common room, your eyes slightly puffy and head sore from lack of sleep. There was a strip of parchment on the table, and you recognised your own handwriting at the top, and a slightly different one on the bottom, thicker as if someone had written very slowly. A small note was stuck to it, You drool in your sleep.

Starlight Kisses & Confessions

I wrote this for G, my super nice nonnie who leaves me extra nice messages, I hope you enjoy it friend!

Warnings: Swearing (like usual lol).


“Tyler, where do you see yourself in five years?” Craig asked, letting a quiet sigh slip out. He should  probably be enjoying this moment- Tyler probably was - but it felt wrong and he knew why. Here he was, laying on his back with his best friend by his side as they watched the stars together, and all Mini could think about was leaning over and kissing him.

He felt guilty just thinking about it, because Tyler was straight.

“Rolling naked in money.” he muttered, the shadow of a smile recognizable on his tired features. They had been out here for a while, not doing much and they defiantly weren’t keeping track of the time.

Just saw a video on Chicana feminism and I’m literally in tears. It makes me so happy and proud to hear others talk about things I feel on such an emotional level and care about so deeply. As a Chicana studying abroad in Mexico, I feel so alone with my ideas and thoughts, and if I bring them up, the people I know here don’t understand them or even laugh at me for being so “sensitive”. I haven’t even mentioned the actual students that are from Mexico, who laugh at me and say I can’t call myself Mexican and don’t understand why such a brown skinned girl speaks English so well. It might be jokes, but it hurts. Let’s not even mention the machismo I have experienced here. I understand it’s everywhere, but as a woman going to a (rich/privileged) Mexican private school, these snotty kids and professors have a certain conservative mentality where they believe in strict gender roles such as women should have a full face of makeup and look presentable at 7am, be soft spoken, and overall feminine…whereas I’m looked down upon (horribly, like if I’ve wandered onto the school by accident) for wearing my mom jeans, ripped ass Vans, and NASA shirt (to such a fucking early class, like bitch ain’t nobody got time). So to hear thoughts that pass my mind every single day out loud today made me so happy, homesick and proud. I love my proud brown sisters.

But basically i was a lot more talkative to him today and he seemed to like that, he was upset so i comforted him and made him laugh, his laugh's so cute.. thanks so much for that advice last night! It feels so nice to have a person like you to come to that actually cares -🌹

AHH YAY SUCCESS!! That honestly sounds perfect! It’s such a good sign when you can talk to someone for that long and still have a great time together. I’m really proud of you for talking to him more than usual, I knew you could do it! And the fact that he complimented you is adorable I definitely think he likes you. I mean if you can make him laugh and feel better when he’s upset, then how could he *not* right? And awh of course, I will always care and want to know how things are going so please keep me updated :) You’re the best, rose anon!
