Not only is this a great character development for Hunk and Keith’s relationship, which as you recall got shaky when Keith didn’t want to go save Allura in Season 1.
But the meaning behind Hunk’s words.
“I think turning Galra has made you a better human.”
Up till this point, Keith was doing just that. Trying to be human. He was secretive, overly protective and tough skinned. He obviously didn’t want to share his own insecurities.
When they find out Keith is Galra, that’s when they saw the human side of Keith. His fears, his dedication to the others, his humor. He gave up his family to accept another family.
This quote is so so important. Because it’s true.
So it’ll be interesting then, to see if Keith can keep this balance. Especially since this scene also brings up an interesting question.
When Hunk is staring at Keith, he responds almost affronted.
“Are you looking to see if I’m Purple??” (A little help here, can anyone tell me where this is in which episode??)
EDIT (I found it):
Yep, that’s right, Keith’s Galra form.
As we remember in season one, when Keith came into direct contact with pure quintessence, we saw this. His hand turns purple.
Hunk looks for that purple skin, and Keith just shrugs it off. Almost scathingly. Like how could Hunk even think of such a thing. When we all know it is a thing. We saw his hand turn purple. And his fear of it.
When Haggar hits Voltron with the pure quintessence at the end of Season two, we see a bunch of close up shots on all the paladin’s faces.
Except Keith. We only see him from the behind. It takes a few seconds before we do see Keith’s face again, and he appears fine.
But why? Why couldn’t we have seen Keith right away like the others?
You all know where I’m going with this. Because Keith does have a Galran form. We just haven’t seen it to it’s full extent, and I don’t believe Keith has either. Yes, he’s been suspicious, but for the way he acts, he hasn’t seen himself yet in full Galran form.
So I believe we’re going to see Keith getting defensive. Now that he has become more Human, I think he’s going to fight to keep it like that. He isn’t ready to accept he is more Galra than just blood.
requested, “I would love to see Star Platinum acting like a dad to Stone Free. Teaching her how to Ora and such. Bring in Crazy Diamond too just to show up SP and punch even faster.” Here’s the first part of that request; Crazy D version to come when I think of something equally goofy.
I know it’s a bit late (and I’m not just talking about today) but here it is, as I promised. I know I have a lot to learn, but I’m really proud of what I’ve made here, especially since it is the first time I’ve used photoshop, and a tablet, and painted digitally.
Also please ignore the weird perspective just shhhhhh
(So I know at least one of my followers knows what this is. They were able to guess off the sneak peek I posted a few weeks ago.) I’ve absolutely loved all the art and the fics that @caustic-synishade has done for their circus au, and what better way to show this love than through fanart :D
Anyway. Here it is, finally, I hope everyone likes it c: I also hope you all have an amazing day/night, and thank you for any likes or reblogs or comments (seriously they make my day). Remember to smile today, love you all!
You ever just think about this scene from Kill la Kill, where Ryuko falls unconscious and Senketsu can’t hold her or carry her but ties his arm into a knot just so he can bring her to safety? And how Senketsu pushes himself so hard to pull Ryuko along, because even if concept art implies he works out and wants so much to be strong, he still can only do so much with the body he was given?
Because I do and oh gosh he loves her so damn much.
So I have this headcanon that when Logan gets excited or talks too fast he stutters. Like maybe he learned something new and is trying to teach it to the others or maybe someone asked him his opinion of something. And his mind starts racing a mile a minute and his words can’t keep up with his train of thought so he starts stutters and trips over his words in his attempt to speak. And he gets so embarrassed, because he feels like someone with his knowledge of language shouldn’t be tripped up by the simplest words.
