Alrighty so this is another one of those voltron prediction/theory/rant its basically an analysis of some parts of season 2 not all bc that would take me forever but just a few key parts (aka the key to my heart Klance okay bye). So grab a drink because this is an essay folks that I spent way too much time on than I should have. Let’s begin shall(ura) we? (I hate myself)
So I’m gonna start with a very good and very platonic (in my opinion) relationship, which is K//allura. Okay okay, they have so much potential to be bffs its exciting.
First off, I took the whole Galra Keith and Allura tension as a message the creators wanted to convey to the viewers about judging someone merely by their race. Honestly I really love it when tv shows, especially kids shows, integrate bigger ideas like racism into their stories. Its subtle yet satisfying and I really really appreciated this particular scene with Keith and Allura.
Allura is describing her hatred for the Galra which is basically her hatred toward a part of Keith that he can’t even control. He never chose to be Galra, it’s just in his blood. And obviously that hurts him because its a part of who he is:((
Like ugh this is so sweet guys. So as you know from the title of this, I don’t ship K//allura at all, but this scene was very special to me in a much different way than how I feel from a romantic interaction. Like this is a genuine moment between two characters that are haunted by the same group, the Galra. Keith is part Galra, he has a part of the enemy inside of him which is probably causing inner turmoil maybe even self-hatred within him. And Allura as we know hates the Galra for killing her entire civilization. These two have a deep character development from this scene alone. We see that Allura has matured from being bitter toward Keith for being Galra to understanding that a person should not be judged by their blood but who they truly are. Also we see that Keith has accepted the fact that yes he may have a part of the enemy within him, but that does not mean he has to be anything like them. He is also pretty stand-off ish and doesn’t like opening up necessarily. He’d much rather keep to himself (other than Shiro), but he is finally opening up to someone else as well. He forgives Allura immediately despite how offensive her bias opinion was towards him. I just love Keith.
So these two are super close now or should be? Which is pretty awesome considering… Keith is super close to Shiro too. SO now he’s close to both Shiro and Allura who are both, might I remind you all, much older than would be appropriate for him to have a romantic relationship with. Anywho, this reeks of space parents and an angsty teen.
Which then leads to Shallura and why I believe it is pointing toward canon woot woot love these goobers. Alright so I’m solely focusing on a few scenes in particular where my heart was pounding and my eyes watering and I was clutching my heart while screaming at my computer screen. The feels man the feels.
I just about swooned at this. Like these underrated moments are what really get me. Like I love the whole Shiro taking Allura’s hand and telling his wife to get some rest, that got me feeling some sort of way. But this scene guys. In the heat of battle, Shiro is concerned for Allura. He’s basically saying “I wish I could be there to take care of her but Coran you have to do it for me.” I cannot guys I cannot.
She could’ve called for anyone else. Was it Keith? NOPE IT WAS SHIRO, PEOPLE!!
Never forget honestly. This is the face of a broken man. I have never seen Shiro more distressed and this pic doesn’t do it justice but when you watch this scene his eyes are glistening like he’s about to cry. The calm, collected leader Shiro is on the verge of tears? omg I can’t.
Honestly this is my weakness. When a character gets hurt and another character goes ballistic and rages. Like Shiro is so determined to kick ass in this scene and avenge Allura. End me.
For Shallura, they both have an understanding that they need each other. They are each other’s support especially considering they both are the leaders and are the older ones of the group. They help bear each other’s responsibility which is much different than Klance’s dynamic. For Klance it is much more playful and focused on chemistry. And also because they are younger it is much more naive and afraid. Both Keith and Lance obviously care for each other but they try not to show it especially when the other is present. They are self-conscious and afraid of what the other will think, that the other doesn’t feel the same way. Shiro and Allura, however, both know that they care for each other and they aren’t afraid to express it through calling each other’s name during battle and other small gestures like that.
Which I forgot to mention that everyone is freaking out over a simple hug between Allura and Keith but like have you noticed that both Klance and Shallura have not had a proper hug yet? Ummmm is this a slow burn fic or… Seriously tho, I’ve watched plenty of shows and animes (I’m shameless) to know that usually the canon couple does not have that special hugging and seal-the-deal scenes quite so early in the series because all the anticipation builds up until the perfect scene is created. I swear a tender Klance and Shallura moment is coming I swear.
Which then leads to my mains, Klance. I just have to admit that one of the many reasons I love these two is because of the fact that Keith and Lance are like my fav characters of all time. And I can relate to both of them at the same time idk. Anyway, back to what’s important: evidence of canon.
So… Do I really need to show these? Like these scenes do not need further analysis it just reeks of dorks-in-love-who-don’t-know-they’re-in-love-with-each-other-and-who-don’t-know-that-the-other-is-in-love-with-them. Man I love Klance.
So instead let’s over-analyze a few other scenes…
“Babe I thought you would have my back.”
“First you forget the bonding moment now this.”
Look this one is a stretch lol but just look at Keith’s face. When you watch this scene, Keith goes from his signature annoyed and irritated look to a betrayed and frustrated look. Maybe that’s just me, but aside from that, he doesn’t necessarily look pissed off, his face changes from his usual pissy look to something much different. Obviously what Lance says does calm him down enough not to yell back at him, but he also looks frustrated because no one understand him or his secret about his past with the Blade of Mamora and all that good junk at this point. I think it is especially bothering him that he can’t just upfront say what he is hiding, and instead he knows he is looking like a fool in front of them (and especially Lance).
Body language is important. Keith turns around as not to face them, I think he is hurt because obviously this whole situation is important to him but not even Lance seems to understand him. And I seriously think Keith and Lance have like this weird mutual understanding usually. Like ya they fight I get that, but usually they kinda get what the other is trying to get at I feel, idk maybe thats just me.
Let’s take a moment to appreciate how blue Lance’s eyes are in this… I love my son…
So like if you look closely at this scene you notice that when Lance is making eye contact with Keith, Keith has his typical “I hate you Lance but really I don’t but I’m gonna pretend like I do” face. But right when Lance looks away Keith actually looks sad and kinda hurt. Out of everyone, he hates that Lance is the one revealing his flaws, and even he knows its true. Lance stop insulting your husband. He’s actually sensitive about what you think of him:(((
Uhhh lowkey I think Keith is just as insecure as Lance is, but he just doesn’t show it… Oh the Klangst!
And another thing we get to see in Season 2 is that Lance is showing ALOT of concern of Keith’s wellbeing which is pretty big if you ask me because season 1 was basically Pining!Keith worried about his boyf. Now we get to see some worried Lance.
Honestly, like I mentioned before, the creators are going for a slow burn. And both Shallura and Klance definitely have their little hints and subtle moments that are very easily missed. But that’s the point. If it’s too obvious then the ending won’t be as powerful, the couples won’t be as special. Also, the development of both of these couples is going slow but very well thought out and I actually appreciate it a lot. I know for a fact K//allura won’t be canon because their interaction is too straight-up(lol) for it to be canon. It could be said as “predictable” but idk I just get a total brotp vibe from them nothing more, plus if they were hinting at canon for them, they wouldn’t have them hug so soon. Also their reactions and facial expressions toward the hugs and touches would be very different. It wasn’t tender like the Bonding Moment™ or the Shallura hand grab™. Facial expressions and reactions are key! Keith looked indifferent when Allura fell into his arms and their hug was sweet yes but it wasn’t hesitant and nervous like a couple who just discovered their feelings for one another would react. It was a hug between two people who recognize their bond. It was a strong bond yes, between two lovers? no I don’t think so. Allura, herself even confirmed how she now viewed the paladins as her family and it just felt to much like a familial bond I couldn’t see anything more to it. If Kallura was to be canon they would have more subtle moments than in-your-face big moments. Little details in the way Keith or Allura would look, or in the background they would be gazing at each other (*cough* like Keith does to Lance *cough*) It’s the little things that count, remember that.
The only ship I was concerned that would be canon was Sh//eith, because they have an obvious bond that is much different than everyone else. But ever since the “Shiro, you’re a bro to me” happened, it basically killed any chance of it happening. Which in my opinion is much better because Klance and Shallura have so much potential and their stories can expand and be written so well. As it is, the creators are doing a really good job at unraveling their stories slowly but just enough as to give the viewers hope which is the goal usually for tv shows. They try to make the shippers suffer sometimes *sigh*.
Anywho, if you read up to this point thanks for listening to me rambling about space parents and space ranger partners lol! I loved season 2 because it revealed a lot about Keith not only through the obvious backstories and blade of mamora stuff but also through his interactions. And yes Keith is my fav lol. Anyways, I am 99.9% sure Klance and Shallura are gonna be canon but by no means am I saying you shouldn’t ship what you want. You do you, folks. Ship on and enjoy the show!
Please, let’s just begin all over again.
I’m not gonna lie, but you were my first love. I know the stigma from me cheating on you will never leave. But every time I look into my reflection, I can’t forget your face. My mind is like a cypher, and I just feel so wide awake and so lost right now. Thinking of all the fun we had in our favorite spring day. But, after all, I’m just a normal 21st century girl with a dream to spread her wings, so I guess it doesn’t matter. So, no, not today. I’ll count quietly to myself, “2, 3”. Because my mama always told me “You never walk alone”
I want to be your ghost. Not because I am dead and you did me wrong. Nor you make me a fool and humiliate me in front of an applauding crowd. None of that even occur. No baby, you’re too good. And I’m afraid I’m not that good for I will do worse. I want to be your ghost. Haunt you in your sleep and in your daydream. Slip through the walls, and caress you. Kiss you even. Whisper words I knew well you love to hear. I will be in every song that will play I will be in every wind that will blow I will be in every place your eyes will lay on, because I leave traces of me in it and you’ll be left with no choice but to remember. Remember me, in your arms. Oh so warm. So alive. So… let the haunting begin.

would make me feel proud of myself.
11. Do you have any siblings? Yes, a little one, I rather not talk about him.

violence is not the solution, but I think about it very much.
13. Have you ever wanted to help someone, but didn’t? Yes, and I am still regretting that. I am just
too shy, so shy it annoys me even. Or maybe I am just stupid for feeling embarrassed of
helping someone. I mean, I am helping them, right?? That’s something good!! Why

14. What makes you angry? There are many things that make me angry, but
injustice, I can’t help it, I just can’t see an unfair situation and stay still

15. What makes you happy? There are many things that make me happy: eating my favourite food, do
something good for someone, having good grades, listening to music, singing,
etc. Too many things!!

the world if I could.

of a child if later he/she returns home with their parents. Also, I had enough
taking care of my little brother when I was younger (I’m still doing it).
19. Did you have a happy childhood? I am not sure how to answer this question. I’ve had a
good childhood but it only lasted like 3 years? I was bullied at school and
after my parents divorced everything changed, my mom was unemployed and had to
take care of me and my little brother (who was only 4 years old) on her own. When
I grew up more I had to help my mother with everything, I became a second
mother to my brother and to myself. Let’s say that I had to mature very soon.
20. Have you ever done drugs? If you have, would you do it again? No, and I am never going to do it, for sure.
21. Would you rather become a child again, possessing all the knowledge you
have today, or become middle-aged, with 45 000 000 € on your bank account? I rather become a child with all the knowledge I
have today. Think about it, I’d be considered the most intelligent child in the
world (intelligent for a little child not for an adult lol), maybe I’ll be
famous, and I’d have the opportunity to repeat my actions again.
22. If you could become any existing famous person in the world - who would
you be and why? Scarlett
Johansson is my goddess but, you know what? I don’t want to be any
famous people I know. I rather be myself famous for something I’ve

24. Where do you see yourself in the future? I like imagining myself doing the job I love,
maybe as a translator or a teacher, having a little apartment somewhere nice,
Switzerland or Germany, or even Spain, and living on my own with my two cats.
Being independent and free.
25. If you’d like, a question of your own here.Mine is directed
to my fellow Witcher lovers;Who and Why?
For friendly purposes,Regis or Cirilla?Regis would be my best friend ever; I’d love
to learn from him and to hear all his adventures, his live must be fascinating
and he must know so many things! His voice is the best thing ever.
For romantic purposes,Dettlaff or Avallac’h? Do I really have to explain why?
As your co-worker,Caranthir or Geralt? Sorry, I don’t trust Caranthir, I prefer Geralt, he’s funny and very
hard working, intelligent and competent. You can’t say I am telling a lie.
As your boss,Eredin or Ge’els? First, because he’s hot and so tall I can’t stand it. And the sassiness!!
OMG!! I love Ge’els. And second, Eredin is too violent for me and not very
trust-worthy, on the contrary Ge’els looks like a decent person.
As your best friend,Yennefer or Shani? Imagine having as best
friend a sorceress as intelligent and powerful as Yennefer… That would be so
cool!!! She would teach me magic!!!
As your ally,Vernon Roche or Anna Henrietta? Roche is determinate,
clever, an excellent plotter and he cares about his soldiers’ security. He
seems legit and he’s hot. Anna Henrietta is very moody and I don’t like her,
As your worst enemy,Triss or Dandelion? What would he do to hurt me? Sing me a ballad? Hit me with a
lute? Write a satire about me? Dandelion is harmless, for god’s sake.
Thank you very much for this awesome ask @ilonavic. It’s perfect! I love it! ♡
