Shance in DotU
‘Kay, so, I’ve been watching 80′s Voltron and like? Has no one brought up the fact that Sven (AKA Shiro) basically dies for Lance in 80′s Voltron? Not even shitting you. (Yeah yeah the English dub claims he was “badly wounded” and out of commission and cut out his entire funeral scene, but hah no, he’s killed in this scene.)
Haggar, deciding she has to take out only one of the paladins to destroy Voltron, manages to lure away Lance. It was going to be Lance who was killed.
Until Sven (AKA Shiro!) shows up to save him. And takes his place in Haggar’s trap.
Also, let’s not forget Lance and Keith BOTH holding Sven (AKA Shiro), crying together as he lies dying.
…so anyway, my point is it’s not like VLD writers have to grasp that hard for shance moments or anything. It’s all here in the original!
…and yes, I know 80′s Voltron has zero bearing on anything that comes to pass in VLD, but I’m just saying.
IF I SOUND DESPERATE AND REACHING IT’S BECAUSE I AM. SO THIRSTY. FOR SHANCE.
