does anyone ever think about the fact that keith and lance both likely feel like outsiders on team voltron?
we already know lance feels like a seventh wheel. he feels like he is below everyone else due to poor self esteem and insecurities. he feels like he doesn’t belong.
but keith, he probably feels the same way, albeit in a different light. he’s the only member on the team who is part galra, aka the alien race that for the most part has been a scourge on the universe’s prosperity. not only that, but he has been labeled as the team’s loner too. he isn’t good at social interactions and often times has opinions that nobody really ever agrees with on the team.
i really want to see them bond over this mutual feeling of “being the odd one out”. because i think they can find more common ground within their relationship if they realized they are not alone in this feeling
Ahh, it’s time for my favorite pastime of combining AUs with other AUs. This time I played around with @mist-lightning-snap’s kwami power swap by combining it with my (slightly altered) genderbends. I also incorporated @princessofharte idea of the kwami’s retaining their personalities same as before, with Jabii being overly-confident and therefore lazy because she’s a tiny goddess of good fortune! What could go wrong! and Yuun trying to be super encouraging despite the misfortune he brings.
Some other details for this au..within an au…
Jabii’s name comes from the Korean word 자비 which means mercy/charity (just added another “i” to fit Kwami naming conventions)
Yuun’s name stems from 厄运 (Èyùn) which is Chinese for “bad luck/doom”
I decided to switch Adrienne’s name to Aurélie, which is something I’ve been thinking about doing for awhile…
I gave Marin a Chinese name, 海明 (HăiMing) which means “bright/clear sea” to go with Marin meaning “sailor/of the sea”
has blue/green eyes and Marin’s are now hazel
“Arlequin” is just French for harlequin and
Aurélie’s is just the feminine equivalent of “minou”.. I was not uh.. feeling too creative in the hero name department today (so it’s subject to change).
I haven’t figured out their powers yet but they will be slightly different from Tikki’s and Plagg’s…
Sometimes Marin wears his hair up out-of-suit but not often. Opposite goes for Aurélie wearing her hair down. She usually has it up somehow.
only know each other in this AU as heroes! Not as civilians (yet)

“The Doctor is someone who sees the big picture, and has seen how
the human race is, he loves the human race, because he sees its
cruelty, but also astonishing kindness and heroism. The Doctor is a
beacon of goodness, and that’s why he can survive all these different
permutations, an abrasive character or an avuncular character or a
strange character. Because at heart, he is, in essence, a good creature.
I think we need heroes like that.“
the year is 2018. someone, probably a new homestuck lured in from hiveswap, decides to see what happened last 6/12 after just discovering it was a thing to be celebrated. they see that one post that’s a 6/12 timeline and think, wait, 2017 isn’t on here. why? little did they know, we don’t talk about 2017’s 6/12. it’s a shameful thing to even think about. they discover that all memories of 6/12/17 have been deleted, except one post simply titled “your ad here: $700.20”.
