hey i’ve seen a bunch of j*hanna//the/mad on my dash lately and here’s a reminder she ships sh//eith (a ~25yo and a 16yo) and draws g/nderbends (i’m sure there’s more but that’s all i can remember off the top of my head)
ok this post is more speculation than meta, so keep that in mind, BUT it’s very possible that we’ve just gotten klance foreshadowing in s4.
from Jeremy Shada’s interview for Den of Geek:
What was it acting/watching “The Voltron Show!” where the Voltron characters perform in stages shows?
[J]: That’s one of my favorite episodes. It’s so funny especially in a season or two where there’s a lot of very serious theme stuff happening. It’s great to have an episode like that to add a lot of levity and breather time. It was so much fun seeing me and the other cast trying to act badly for certain lines.
It’s also a totally meta episode because we’re just poking fun at ourselves. Poking fun at the character archetypes of each person. Like “Loverboy Lance”, Keith is emo, Pidge is smart, Hunk is kind of dopey and hilarious, and Shiro is the hero. It’s also great getting to see people playing those comic lines; even people that don’t usually get to do those.
okay, so he said it’s totally a meta episode, how is that any evidence for klance?
uhhh, i don’t know, maybe the fact that Allura literally played Keith the entire episode?
now, look, i’m not trying to downplay the Allura/Lance dynamic; it’s abundant that he still very much has a crush on her. even Jeremy acknowledged this in that same interview:
When you’re with someone for that amount of time and you’re in these crazy intense situations I think he sees her strength and leadership and he definitely completely respects her for that. It’s great just seeing them bond as these great friends. He still definitely has a crush on her but I think you see that respect for her has grown over time.
but he literally acknowledged Lance’s crush on Allura and their progression into friends in the same sentence. keep in mind that this isn’t new information - we’ve already seen Lance and Allura grow into a stage of mutual respect, especially in s3 and s4:
seeing this alongside Jeremy outright stating that episode was a meta episode, meaning it was meant to hold subtextual meaning, makes me pretty certain of a few things:
1) Lance has a crush on Allura at this point in the series, but it won’t stay this way. we know this from their interactions in s3 and s4, and we can expect their relationship to grow into a friendship, both from the canon material and from conclusions drawn from Jeremy’s interview.
2) Lance will fall in love with Keith. as The Voltron Show was a meta episode, the subtextual layer is crucial to the understanding of it. yes, Lance has a crush on Allura right now, but his crush is turning into a friendship. we know Lance is going to get a love interest eventually, though, so who might it be? Oh, i don’t know, maybe the person that his canon crush is playing on this episode that is supposed to hold a deeper meaning, Keith.
I’m just saying, it might not be that much of a reach after all to take all this from the Voltron Show episode. It might have been a lighthearted “filler” episode, but it might have also heavily foreshadowed Lance’s future love interest and future canon klance.
News flash: if you don’t like a ship get the fuck over it. My friends wanna ship Septiplier, Phan, etc? Be my guest. I’ll send you the stuff that comes up on my feed about it. We can talk theories. Ryden? Frerard? Peterick? As long as you aren’t harassing anyone. Send me your aus I’ll write you a fucking story. Got no ideas to draw? Hit me up, I’ll give you an idea and a ship. Doesn’t matter if I ship it or not. I got your backs. If you want content I’ll give you content as long as you aren’t harassing anyone or using it to be hateful or disrespectful. Be peaceful. Shut the fuck up with your “ship discourse”. It’s not discourse if you’re sending death threats, it’s harassment and it’s illegal. As long as the ship is of two consenting adults we’re cool. (Also no rape, etc. You know what we’re dealing with.)
Edit: I didn’t expect this to blow up. The point of this post is that it’s stupid to hate others, especially your mutuals and friends, over okay ships. Be respectful of all people.
Hey, so I’m back with more fics. Honestly I haven’t read that many fics lately, kinda distracted by trying to write my own, here’s to hoping it goes well, right? But the fandom deserves something nice in the light of all the troll fics that were posted. I was wondering if I should update my old rec list? Or should I combine this one and the other one into one massive list? What do you guys think? Anyway, same formula, titles are links and bolded, italics are my commentary. Happy reading!
Shiro’s gone and all he has left of him are a shitty couch and a few pictures on his phone and dog tags that he’s afraid to touch because touching them feels like accepting the fact that Shiro will never touch them again. If he holds them for long enough any traces of Shiro’s touch will be wiped away and replaced, like they were never there to begin with, like Shiro was never there to begin with.
(I’m terrible at introductions so let’s get to the point lol)
Thanks a lot everyone for following me and sticking around! Special thanks to my biggest fans and the great friends I’ve made here! Also, feel free to converse with me especially mutuals. It would be nice to get to know you guys.
And finally… I decided to only include my favorite blogs so I didn’t mention every mutual but, I still really do enjoy your blog! 👌
Hello everyone! My blog is almost 2 years old and I met more friends along the way which made my tumblr life more colorful (^_^). To all my wonderful followers especially new mutuals, thank you all so much for sticking with me and my blog until now! You guys are amazing! I don’t deserve you guys and I can’t thank you all enough! I never thought I would reach this far, a new milestone… 2k is a lot for me and therefore, I will keep running this blog and my other sideblogs for as long as I can! Thank you also for those who looks up, appreciate and compliment my edits, your words means a lot to me you have no idea! It boosts my confidence and motivates me to do more and improve along the way! ≧◡≦
Eeeeehhhh new post cause I don’t wanna hijack the post these were left on but I don’t agree with these tags and wanted to make a post about it. No they didn’t get along as smoothly as they do in the later seasons, but just off the top of my head:
Season 2: Lopez immediately hits it off with Sheila
Season 2: Donut and Caboose become fast friends, even though Donut had been taken prisoner by the blues at the time.
Season 3: Sarge shows a soft spot for Caboose after Battle creek; let’s him press the button to activate the hidden microphone (“what a little rascal”).
Reconstruction: Grif urges Caboose to “keep going, dont worry about us” as their jeep is hit by the “emp” and stalls.
Relocated: Donut treks accross the desert to Valhalla by himself, nearly dying of dehydration to get help for Tucker.
Recreation: Grif and Sarge both accompany Caboose on his mission to rescue Tucker (admittedly they had their own motivations for doing this as well but its worth mentioning they agreed to help a blue to rescue another blue).
Revelation: Church and Grif casually greet each other (“Hey Grif,” “Hey, what’s up man?”).
Revelation: Sarge, Grif, and Simmons all go with Caboose and Tucker to rescue Church and Tex from the Meta, even though statistically they expected to die doing it.
So like, the Reds have liked the Blues, at least some of the time, since SUPER early in the series, just as the Blues liked them. Honestly these losers are all so bad at disliking the other team, it’s almost easy to forget they were supposed to be fighting each other.
3,000 FOLLOWERS? ARE YOU KIDDING ME, WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU GUYS?!?!
i…i can’t really believe it. when i started this blog 6 years ago (my anniversary was back in august but i forgot all about it) i didn’t expect to get 10 or even 100 followers. and now, with over 67,000 posts (majority of them is me thirsting over my faves, liveblogging and voicing my usually unpopular opinions about wrestling, i have made some friends along the way because of it, feeling accepted that others love and sometimes hate wrestling as much as i do. and for that, i thank you ALL from the bottom of my heart, especially my mutuals so this follow forever is for you. ❤️
if you’re not on this list, do not feel bad or left out. maybe i forgot your url by accident or you changed it without me knowing but i want you to know you made this milestone happen so you are not entirely forgotten. if i reblog/like your posts a lot, wish my edits/gifs were as good as yours, actually talk to you or i enjoy you on my dash, you are indeed special to me.
Black people having a conversation with other black people: man it would’ve been so cool if they had cast Belle as a black actress because she’s French and being French AND black isn’t mutually exclusive??? Especially since the storyline would support it. @lasciate-ogne-speranza-voi-ch-i : bUt BeLlE wAs WhItE!!1!!1! cAn’T yOu NiGgErS rEaD?!
anyway brooklyn 99′s blatant and disgusting fatphobia is not excusable or acceptable, and it’s super disappointing so many leftist, progressive, liberal, feminist people told me b99 was a good show. “it’s diverse” “it doesn’t make jokes about marginalised people” “it cares about social justice”
IF IT DOESN’T CARE ABOUT FAT PEOPLE, IT’S NOT PROGRESSIVE
our deaths are literal jokes to you. i can’t believe so many people and mutuals especially stan this show. it’s so nice to know fatphobia doesn’t fucking matter to you bec omg jake and amy are so cute
