jumps out airlock

The idea that the Lions mirror their paladins in significant ways is usually applied to virtues that they have, but it’s something I think is noteworthy to consider that… personality is a mixed bag. If the Lions and paladins are similar, it’s likely that the Lions don’t just seek out someone with corresponding virtues, but also corresponding conflicts as well.

I’ve discussed before that Black and Shiro both appear to be dealing with trauma, to the point that it would seem like Black’s response to Zarkon’s presence is quite likely something like a panic attack.

And then I thought about Red.

People compare Keith and Red in terms of being brash and headstrong but a very major element of Keith’s character is his relationship with isolation and abandonment. Feeling like he’s losing people he cares about.

Red is the only Lion we know of that was captured by the Galra. It’s possible Blue was if I’m right in my theory that Blue carried Keith to Earth, but it’s also possible the Blade found her before the Empire did. Either way, Yellow, Green, and Black were still safe on their respective planets and the Galra had just found Blue on Earth.

Red was already on Sendak’s ship.

A body language analysis of Keith and Allura’s scenes in season 2

I sat on the fence a bit about posting this, but I’ve now been asked by multiple people to do a body language analysis of the Keith & Allura interactions in S2, so here it is. If you watched the scenes between them and thought “why does this look so flat and awkward, why is there no chemistry” - consider this an explainer. A lot of the awkwardness has to do with body language and facial expressions, which I’ll break down below. I’m going to talk about two things here: firstly, Keith and Allura’s little side-quest in 2x06 ‘The Ark of Taujeer’; and secondly, the hug between them in 2x12.

PLEASE NOTE: this post is pretty transparently anti-ka//ura. It’s basically a run-down of reasons why I think there’s no chemistry between Keith and Allura and why I don’t think their scenes together are romantic. If you ship ka//ura and for some reason decide that hate-reading this post is a good use of your time, please don’t @ me in the replies or clog up my inbox with “well, actually…” because I’m not interested. You’re not going to convince me I’m wrong about this so don’t waste either of our time.

Let me preview this analysis by pointing out that Voltron is an animated series. This means that every scene is carefully storyboarded and then hand-drawn one frame at a time. Character expressions, body language, behaviours, and positioning are all carefully planned out. This means any awkwardness in the scenes is a result of the story telling process; it can’t be blamed on 'bad acting’ or the actors 'not having chemistry’. The scenes exist as they do because they were designed to look that way. Non-verbal cues such stance, posture, and facial expressions are all used to convey character emotions and feelings, so you can tell a lot about what’s going on with characters by looking at their body language. That said, let’s get on with the analysis.

Behind a cut because this is pic-heavy and long.

here’s my one and only version of the keith shovel talk pls enjoy

“Hey Keith, wait up!”

Keith slowed and looked back as Hunk caught up with him and watched as he caught his breath.

“What’s up? Something wrong?” he asked.

Hunk shook his head, “No, no, nothing drastic. I umm. I just needed to talk to you about something. It’s about Lance.”

Immediately Keith both tensed and melted internally at the thought of the blue paladin. Their relationship was new and fresh and just bringing it up made Keith feel warm, his stomach making tentative somersaults.

He cleared his throat, “Ok. What is it?”

He hoped his face didn’t give away the gymnastics happening inside but by the look Hunks face, it was obvious he was fooling no one.

Hunk smiled and continued, “Look dude, you and I both know I’m you twos biggest fan. I rooted for you guys from the beginning and if Lance hadn’t confessed to you when he did, I probably would have done it myself. You guys have your differences but you also bring the best of out of each other. And I see how happy you make each other too, even when you’re arguing about the stupidest things, it’s kind of disgustingly cute, bro.”

Keith felt his face get hot with every word and a part of him wanted to jump out of an airlock while the other glowed with pride.

“Umm thanks, man, I think. I uhh….I think so too honestly.”

His friend nodded but then Hunks expression dimmed, an air of seriousness suddenly crackled around him.

He placed a hand on Keiths shoulder, “That being said. Lance is my bro. He’s been my best friend since day one at the garrison and like my brother. I look out for my own.”

Keith widened his eyes, “Oh. Hunk, you don’t have to worry, I’d never hurt him.”

He shrugged, “I know, you’re my friend too and believe me, I gave Lance the same talk I’m giving you cause I think of you as family.”

Keith had no time to feel touched as Hunk threw and arm around his shoulders and tightened, slightly, giving Keith a taste of that hidden strength his usually gentle friend seems to always hide.

“But still, I have to tell you. If you hurt Lance, I’ll be disappointed in you, but I’ll still be your friend. That won’t change. Plus, Lance is more than capable to make his own decisions and deal with any consequences.” Hunk gave him a sunny smile but Keith felt there was a ‘but’ coming up. That, and Hunk had yet to let go of his neck.

“Umm, I’m glad to hear that. Is there anything else?”

His huge, gentle, terrifyingly strong friend looked pensive and then said, “Yeah. One last thing. Even though I say Lance is more than capable of handling things on his own, I should warn you. If he gives me the word, I will have to destroy you.”

Keith blanked out. “……. so…….. you’ll beat me up?”

“What?!” Hunk shouted as he leaped back, “No man, I’d never hurt you like that. Geez. I’m not an animal. I’ll just tell everyone all your secrets you’re hiding.”

“Ohhkaay…. good luck cause I don’t have any secrets. The only one I had I basically told you all the moment I found out,” Keith snorted, a wave of relief washed over him from finally being let go.

Hunk shook his head, “Nah, not those kinds of secrets. I mean real, embarrassing, life ruining stuff that you only think about in the dead of night. You know, things you might keep in say, a red leather bound desert journal?”

Keith gaped same spluttered, “Wh-wha? Hunk! That’s my private journal!”

Hunk put up his hands in innocence, “It’s not my fault you kept that thing out in the open where anyone could have picked it up and read it. But hey, don’t worry. As long as you never hurt Lance too badly, those secrets will be taken with me to my grave. Cross my heart. Deal?”

Keith scoffed but he couldn’t keep the small smile from forming, “Yeah, ok, deal….. You know, I always thought Pidge was the sneaky one. But I get the feeling you’re a lot more dangerous than you let on.”

Hunk shrugged once more, “I have no idea what you’re talking about. Good talk, bro. See you at dinner!”

Keith watched his friend walk away, a mixture of impressed, intimidation, and affection curled into his gut. He suddenly felt the strong urge to go hug Lance for a very, very long time.

anonymous asked:

the paladins + allura and coran (if you want) after a "discussion"(or fight) with their s/o pleaseee

HO BOYO 

===

Shiro has the guilt. he has it. it is in his possession and you have locked yourself in the bathroom. he can hear you knocking things over and pilling at the curtain and he is rocking back and forth hugging your jacket and also crying. He doesnt even feel angry he just feels really guilty for raising his voice at you and when you raised your voice back at him;;;  he feels the emotional self betrayal of missing a step on the stairs and then falling down them and he is suffering. 

Keith just… gets real quite and contemplative, suddenly recalling every moment that his hotheadedness got the better of him, and practically hitting his head agaisnt the wall wondering why he hasnt learned anything from it all yet. it takes a lot for him the work up the courage and find the words to talk to you again, and all he can do is apologize, hoping it reaches you. 

Lance just;;; feels like such an idiot?? you were arguing over the answer to a pretty existential question that Slav had asked, and in a competitive nature, once Lance formed his opinion, he was very defensive of it, blocking out anything contradicting you said trying to prove your point. you ended u storming out of the room in a huff , and he’d never actually even listen to what you were saying, so Slav reworded it for him and it clicked, what you were saying make good sense and he was to dense to listen and he feels real bad… 

Hunk  worse he felt his heart actually break when you shouted at him all the sudden. He was so confused because he’d just been working on blueprints for a little trinket he wanted to make you and from the other room you just start yelling at him asking him questions and he was lost. You toss a shirt in hsi face and he looks at it, and it was yours, the one you and him made together for valentines day a while back, it had your initials on it along with his and a heart… and a very dark oil stain on it… oh right… he apologizes every two seconds and its never enough he feels so bad he’s an awful boyfriend he’s convinced himself that he needs to do everything he possibly can to make it up to you. 

Pidge cries. shes an emotional crier. tears up when shes extremely happy, or sad or angry  just anytime shes emotional there are tears. she hates it too. You didnt mean it, she knew that but when you say something dismissive of her feelings, she just looses it. all of her doubt and fear boils up and shes screaming all the sudden she cant feel her hands they’re clenched so tight and shes stepping closer to you and she seems the confusion and fear in your eyes but she cant stop herself now and now shes in a ball on the floor crying wanting to just die and go away and not have to feel all these things its to much for her. 

Allura is very stubborn at times, she can admit that. though in this circumstances, shes very stubborn to prove that she is not. it’d been a very long day, and her diplomatic nature had worn down and so she is left to her own devices with you. she didnt care what you were saying but she would defend herself nonetheless. when you point put that she just keeps bringing it around to be about her instead of trying to work on the issues in the relationship she just scoffs and it takes her a long time of silence after you storm off to realize what she’d done. she;s humbled enough to go to you an apologize, hoping you’d let her just… start over. 

Feel’s like he’s just kicked a puppy and he wants to disappear. he’s ready to jump out the airlock honestly, when he sees you cower away from him like you were afraid he;d hit you. he wasnt that scary was he? he just steps back and its liek everything is reset, and he feels like the scum of the universe;;; he didnt know what he was thinking, or what he was so angry about int he first place.. he just hoped you forgive him;;

“A Space Tail”

A late, late, late entry for Phanniemay Day 15, ‘Sci-Fi.’ Predictably, here’s some Space Au Danielle.

Space did funny things to people. 

Then again, people did funny things in space. Strapping themselves to rockets and blasting themselves across the big empty. Even though everything they were was tailor-made from millions of years of evolution for one tiny world, they still had to ride off to all the other ones. Transplant themselves to a foreign body that would always reject them. It tended to make people a little crazy.

Dani could sympathize. Everything down to her blood and her bones endlessly craved a place that wasn’t, anymore. Always a mismatch. Never a someplace that ever clicked into her incompatible links.

Space stations were the real dens of crazy. Built to accommodate everyone and succeeding with nobody. Gravity too high or too low, never the right temperature, finicky air composition. A place with dozens of different species, nationalities, clades, gangs, and corporates like a box of mismatched pieces. The bad edges crushed together.  

Not a single sentient belonged there, Dani especially. She was okay with it. The bar was offering half-off drinks for gals and gal-identifying.
