Love the interview! But gotta disagree with JDS re interpersonal relationships not being the backbone of the show because every production season so far have bookended with Keith losing and saving Shiro. I know he probably meant it in a shippy way that it's not about ships but yeah, Sheith romantic or platonic is so important to the show it's crazy when you really think about it
i think that if jds could speak honestly on sheith, he would. he’s previously expressed that he thinks winter soldier is the greatest movie of all time and that given the chance he would love to redo it and said in the same quot that “thinks are much different than they are even five years ago.” he wrote the black paladins. nothing will convince me that sheith isn’t his epic winter soldier fanfic and i could not be prouder of him and lm for writing a showstopper of a series with characters they adore. that so many of you are so moved by sheith’s relationship, the growth and love all of these characters share, and voltron’s incredible plot is a testament to their triumph.
