VOLTRON SEASON 2 SPOILERS

I posted this on the wrong account at first

Well, even though it’s about 2:30am (now 3:10) where I am, I don’t think I’m going to sleep soon, so here’s what I personally thought of the latest season.

Remember, this is my opinion, we all took enjoyment out of certain things, as others were displeased by certain things.

Star rating? 4.5/5

Liked?

-everything that hinted towards Sheith (there was a lot)

-everything that hinted towards Klance (no way near as much, but it was there, particularly when Lance asked in that voice “What does it mean?”

-Hunk. Baby needs more appreciation, I liked the nod towards his friendship with Keith

-More nods to the LGBTQ community. Particularly in “Space Mall”, we see Pidge being conflicted over which toilet to use, and the fact that it’s hard to tell which is female/male (assuming that it was some binary classification). Also the old lady with the beard. I loved that.

-Subtlety and implications. Not outright ‘ship’ moments are generally more of a ship moment. What do I mean? Just leaving it up to interpretation, rather than shoving it in our faces. Example? Flash and its Westallen problem. I hate it. I don’t see the chemistry, it’s all forced. When love happens out of the bloom, in direct ways rather than subtle ways, it’s bad. Which is why I liked how Klance and Sheith shippers could enjoy the small moments, like a character simply asking if the other was alright. Relationships that rely on the big moments to show their ‘potential’ are just boring and lame in my opinion.

-Every battle, every upgrade

-MAE MY BAE!

-Yes Allura! Kick that witch’s ass! Kick all their asses, do the thing Allura! Keep doing it!

-The Galra rebellion obviously!! So much more depth, and as much as Allura’s attitude got on my nerves, it would be less realistic and interesting if she had taken it all in stride

-Bonding. Just the concern that was expressed when others were in danger/injured

-PRINCE LOTOR???

Disliked?

-Lack of reflection. Very rushed, full of action, but I really hoped/thought that after the discovery of Keith being Galra, there would be a whole episode on the team’s dynamic, how it’s progressed and what this revelation affects. Instead, it skipped everyone’s reactions. Not cool.

-”…like a brother…” LALALALALALA! I mean c’mon creative team, why make all these suggestions and then bring that word into the relationship. Like I thank you for leaving it up to interpretation (your specific use of like), but simply the mention of the bro zone is worse than friend zone, please don’t make my ship weird, we already get enough shit from the antis, they’re definitely going to use this quote against us. That’s cruel. So don’t pull a Luke/Leia on me. *shivers* I know you’re trying to reinstate that these two are incredibly close, but being like siblings isn’t the only way to describe that people are closer than friends, but not in a romantic relationship. Cause if you make it canon later down, that quote is still weird… which is why i am elected to ignore it.

-The stuff that I could definitely tell was paying tribute to the original. Kallura. I’m sorry, I like these characters, I like their friendship, but I don’t see them that way. I was trying not to look it through my gay eyes, but honestly it made me cringe at some points at how blatant it was. What makes me ship things hardcore? Subtlety. Unfortunately that subtlety is usually entangled with queerbaiting, so if I am to be honest, I’m very sensitive about these things. I’m genuinely hoping for endgame-Sheith because the network is Netflix. The fact that it’s a kid’s show is extra awesome if that were to happen. I don’t want it to happen now, I want it to flesh out. And I did like that Allura and Keith had differences due to his heritage, and seeing them leave the Castle because they thought they were responsible for putting everyone in danger was interesting. But certain moments were just too forced for my liking, especially seeing as the two memories of Allura and Keith’s relationship are the time they were trapped outside the Caslte, and the time Keith suggested they abandoned Allura. Romantic? Nope. Allura deserves better. And in my eyes, Keith deserves Shiro, or maybe Lance. If you ship it, I have no problem, if it’s canon, I might kind of have a breakdown, but it’s your ship. It’s only because I’m hardcore Sheith that I personally didn’t enjoy it cause I’m so fussy.

-Following up on that, one of the reasons why I’m so weary of the Kallura relationship is because of Lotor. I’ve heard of what happened in the original series. Allura is too good for a plot that should remain in the eighties and never reveal itself again. I mean, c’mon guys, being captured, rescued and fought over is the last thing I want to see for Allura.

-Thace being dead. I really thought Thace was Keith’s dad, and I was still thinking that until he died- because I started to think he looked like the dad, but clearly i was just projecting. I think this is the saddest death so far, I just thought there was more for Thace. Rip.

I woke up with you on my mind.
You called me babe last night —
my heart is still pounding.

What we are is hurting her.
And I think she matters more to me than you do.

I broke things off with you today.
She barely said a word.
I’ve never regretted anything more than this.

I’m walking around town in search of alcohol.
They say that liquor numbs the pain of having a broken heart.
I want to put that to the test.

Sunday 2:32am
I heard you texted a girl you’ve never spoken to before.
I wonder if it’s because you’re trying to replace me.
I can’t help but wish you weren’t.
I thought I was irreplaceable.

—  a week with you on my mind, c.j.n.

Hey guys, have we cried over episode 9 of Yuri on Ice enough yet?

I think not!

Let’s talk about that airport scene (my precious, beloved airport scene).

It’s beautiful and tear-jerking on its own.

But how about we remember that Yuuri said that he will retire after this year’s Grand Prix Final?

Let’s look at that scene from that angle.

What he’s saying here is basically “Please stay with me, please take care of me for these last few weeks before everything is over.”

And this line, this line especially sounds melancholic. As though Victor is saying “I wish I could stay with you longer but we both know that we can only stay together until the Grand Prix Final. I wish we had more time. If only this didn’t have to end so soon…”

And Yuuri knows that’s exactly what he means. He wishes it would be a promise that they’ll stay together forever, but really, it’s only a reminder that what they have is temporary, that even though they wish it would last longer, it won’t. That everything between them will end, and will end soon.

It’s no wonder there are tears in his eyes.

And of course, we can imagine that Yuuri’s plans can change, that he will compete again next year, or that Victor will stay by his side not as his coach, but as something more.

But they don’t know that yet.

They’re clinging to each other for dear life because, for all they know, this is all the time they’re going to get.

They want to make the most of it while it lasts.
