did i ever tell ppl about the time me and my family thought my older brother was gay and dating his best friend? they used to hold hands and cuddle and shit all the time and cause my brothers super quiet we kinda just thought that was him coming out and didn’t really say anything about it. this went on for maybe two yrs and then one day he arrives home with this girl and is all ‘id like you guys to meet my girlfriend’. at this point everyone is ’????’ and my mom is literally crying and like 'u broke up with James?!?!?!’ and honestly I’ve never seen a man more confused in his life and yeah that’s the time my family fucked up for like 2 yrs
A quick observation about Shiro and the Black Lion’s bonding moment in the S2 finale: right before Shiro retrieves his bayard from Zarkon, there’s a montage of images showing us how closely he and Black have bonded. It’s all memories of their time together, and most of it’s pretty standard stuff that you’d expect, depicting their close relationship over two seasons.
There’s Black rescuing Shiro from robeasts and dino-dogs:
Black rescuing Shiro on the astral plane when they fought Zarkon together:
Flying together - pretty sure this is from the nosedive exercise, the first time they really bonded:
But… one of the memories is… a bit different:
You guys. You guys. The Black Lion remembered the time they made a Voltron cheer-pyramid and Shiro said “and I’ll form the head”. This is one of their important bonding moments. THIS NONSENSE RIGHT HERE is something the Black Lion (and possibly also Shiro) fondly looks back on as a time they bonded.
Like… how funny must this have seemed from the Black Lion’s point of view? Imagine Black standing on top of the cheerleader pyramid laughing uncontrollably to herself in whatever language giant robot lions speak.
Shiro: “Is everyone bonding and focusing?”
Black Lion: “I love you but this is the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever done.”
Imagine Sirius having a little crush on you. He’d always wait for you to look at him or at least return his looks and be very disappointed when you don’t. “What’s wrong with me, Prongs? I mean: look at me! Why doesn’t she want to look at me!?”
