So Trini being the amazing ranger she is, learns to sorta dampen/sorta turn off her super strength a bit so she can do stuff without breaking everything she touches but like she can be injured easier
oh my god my lil baby
Trini totally does that. She probably ends up doing because she doesn’t want to accidentally hurt one of her brothers when they goof around. I can see her forgetting to ‘turn on’ her strength again before a fight and getting hurt and the rangers make her promise not to do it again
While I loved how Marianne transformed herself into a rebel and warrior in the movie, I also like that we got the hint that she never really fit in to begin with. The clumsiness and the way her boutonnière looked about as good as Dawn's after it had gone through hell. Then she becomes more confident by becoming even stranger to the people around her and I just LOVE it.
Y E S, Gary Rydstrom said that rough, rebel side of her was always a part of her, but she was just sort of torn between letting it out and wanting to adhere to a more conventional social standard. And it isn’t even as if she closes herself off after her transformation–she’s still fiercely devoted to her father and sister, but she no longer places value in things they think are The Most Important. So, like, the story isn’t even that either she or Bog have to open themselves up to love–they don’t. But what they can do is stop thinking of themselves as too weird for anyone to like. Because SOMETIMES you meet the WEIRDEST best person for you after they’ve kidnapped your sister, IT’S GREAT. :D
ALSO THAT’S LIKE THE BEST METAPHOR FOR THE MOVIE, TOO. It’s just going to get weirder the more you try to make it ~conventional~ but it’s beautiful the way it is, hush.
Family au when the kids are older Pidge is declared "absolute favorite" by Keith simply because she's the only one shorter than him.
But IMAGINE KEITH BEING ONE OF THOSE PARENTS THAT ARE REALLY FIRED UP AT THEIR KIDS SPORTS GAMES. Poor Shiro having to monitor him and Lance from being overly critical of referee calls. (2)
OMG Keith would be that kind of parent! You see, they really weren’t expecting their kids to be into sports. Maybe Lance, yes. But Hunk and Pidge? They seemed more fit for science and literature clubs. BUT. They were all part of their high school teams. [The Voltron Family] (there are newly added fics in that post!! Go read them!)
Hunk = Football Lance = Baseball Pidge = Soccer
And honestly, Shiro and Keith sometimes cannot keep up with their games but they all try their best to be in each and every game of their kids. There are times wherein the schedule for the day is like baseball for Lance in the morning and soccer for Pidge in the afternoon and then football for Hunk in the evening. It was intense but damn are they so good at what they do.
Keith: RUN LANCE RUNNNN!!!!! *standing up while cheering* Shiro: Keith, sit down. You’re— Keith: Shiro, I don’t care if I’m causing a scene. MY SON IS OUT THERE DOING HIS BEST AND I’M NOT GONNA BE ONE OF THOSE PASSIVE PARENTS WHO DON’T—*looks back at the field and sees Lance doing a homerun* OH MY GOD! *whistles* THAT’S MY BOY!!!!! WAY TO GO LANCE!!!!! Lance: *sees his Daddy Keith* *fist in the air* *smiles so wide despite all the sweat on his face* *dances like an idiot on the field* Keith: *points at Lance while looking at Shiro* *frowns* Okay, he NEEDS to stop doing that. THAT is just embarrassing. Shiro: *laughs* You’re so proud of him. Keith: Of course, I am. *smiles* He was so lanky and now look at him, running like a fricking cheetah like no big deal. *looks at his watch* Will we make it to Pidge’s game in an hour? *looks at Shiro* Shiro: *checks his phone* Yeah, I can drive us there in 15 minutes. Keith: Okay, now let’s go and congratulate our son. He showers the longest. I’ll call Pidge and Hunk to let them know about the result of Lance’s game.
So Shiro drives Keith and Lance to Pidge’s game in a different stadium.
Shiro: *sees Pidge walking out with her team* PIDGE!!!!! OVER HERE! Pidge: *looks at the bleachers and sees her family* *waves* *shouts* CONGRATULATIONS, LANCE!!! *thumbs up* Knew you could do it! Lance: *grins* Obviously, DUH! Now go kick some butt! Pidge: WILL DO!!! WILL MAKE HUNK FEEL SO PRESSURED! *cackles madly* Keith: Honestly, where does she even get that cackle from? ~The game starts and the crowd was going wild~ All three: *standing up* *watching intensely* Keith: *chants to himself* You can do it, baby. You can do it. Pidge: *kicks the ball and scores a goal* Keith: *jumps* OH MY GOD!!! THAT’S MY DAUGHTER!!! *looks around the bleachers* THAT’S MY DAUGHTER WHO JUST SCORED A GOAL!!!! *looks at Shiro and Lance* DID YOU SEE THAT? DID YOU SEE WHAT THAT LIL GIRL JUST DID????!!! Shiro: We did, Keith. We did. Pidge: *gets called by the referee* Lance: *groans* WHAAAAAT WHAT NOW?? THAT WAS DEF A GOAL! THAT WAS NOT A FOUL!! *rolls up his sleeves* I’M GONNA— Shiro: *stops Lance* No, you are not going down there. Stay. Keith: Well I’m going to give them a piece of my mind. Shiro: *grabs Keith* NOPE. KOGANE. YOU’RE STAYING HERE.
Pidge’s team wins and now they’re all driving down to watch Hunk’s game in yet another stadium.
Pidge: Whose got kids who are fricking BORN WINNERS??!!! *looks at Shiro and Keith* YOU DOOOOOOOOOOO~ *finger guns* *winks* Lance: *laughs* Hunk better not cry when he loses. Losers are not accepted in this family of awesome.
Hunk DID cry. But he cried because he scored the final touchdown and he was a sobbing mess. Lance cried. Pidge cried. Keith cried. Heck, Shiro cried.
Keith: Oh my god. I knew you could do it, Hunk. But oh my god. *hugs* My lil baby just— Hunk: *laughs while sniffing* I can’t believe I did that, too! Lance: *hugs Hunk next* YOU BIG GUY!!! THAT WAS JUST SO AMAZING! YOU TOTALLY KILLED THAT OTHER GUY!! Pidge: *glomps Hunk at the back* Now we’re all winners! How great is that? You know what this means, Daddy Shiro? *eyes him* Shiro: We’re all happy and proud of you three?? *smiles innocently* Pidge: Nooo!!!! You and Daddy Keith are going to treat us to that pizza parlor and we get to have one each!!! Keith: *gasps* Pidge, can you even finish 4 slices? What more 8 slices? Lance: *places arm around Keith* Please, Daddy Keith. Do not under estimate your children and their capacity to consume food after winning their games. Pidge: I’m way too hungry I could probably even eat Hunk’s share! Hunk: HEY!!! NO STEALING OF PIZZAS, PIDGE. We’ve talked about this!
In the end, Hunk still shared his pizza with Pidge. ;)
Keith: This is so tiring but I’m way too happy to even think about it. Shiro: Three games in one day. Keith: They should’ve just joined normal clubs! Wasn’t there an art club in that school? But nooooooo. They just have to join the sporty ones. Shiro: *laughs* They’re having fun and you seem to be enjoying it. Keith: *laughs* I am. I guess you could say I’m glad they didn’t join the going-home club like I did back in high school.
