Besides her human-like features, their facial similarities, and how fucking AWESOME it would be, we’ve actually already met her before.
Remember this? Yeah, Keef met a mysterious Galra that he fought alongside but who ultimately betrayed him
LET’S TAKE A CLOSER LOOK SHALL WE
The uniform is EXACTLY the same and given the body shape + coloring, she can’t be the two ladies on the left. So she’s either Galra warrior of the right BUT hooded Galra lady’s weapon seems v different from that small gun (either a sword or a staff or a long sniper gun???) PLUS A LITTLE SMALL DETAIL: Both mysterious Weblum Galra and human-like Galra lady have a touch of orange on their collar.
SO THAT MYSTERIOUS GALRA WAS DEFINITELY GOTH AZULA SO IT’S CLEAR SHE HAS SOME RELATION TO KEITH BECAUSE WHY ELSE WOULD THEY WRITE THAT SCENE??
And given that she was trapped in this uniform, she was already working for Lotor. Keith’s mom is a known associate of the Blade of Marinade so she couldn’t be working for Lotor unless some dramatic af shit went down and changed her loyalties OR she’s in deep cover. But I still think she’s too young and too human looking to be Keef’s mom.
YOU KNOW WHAT EXPLANATION WORKS?
Cowboy Bebop and his furry alien wife have twins. They separate those twins at birth because they take after different parents (lookswise). Keef’s dad abandons him for some unknown reason and maybe Keef’s mom does the same with her daughter?? (Too risky to have a child with the Blade??) Her daughter grows up bullied for her half-human heritage and when another group of half-Galra soldiers come to recruit her, including this charismatic prince, she joins without a second thought., either strongly believing in the mission or not really caring what the mission was just happy to have a place to belong. THE POSSIBILITIES ARE ENDLESS.
CUE GENERAL VS. PALADIN FIGHT
CUE FIGHT SCENE BETWEEN THE TWINS
CUE KEEF TAKING OUT HIS KNIFE AFTER HIS BAYARD GETS KNOCKED AWAY
CUE HER BEING LIKE WHERE THE FUCK DID YOU GET THAT BECAUSE SHE HAS A SIMILAR KNIFE
CUE THEM BEING OVERJOYED AT HAVING FAMILY (WE’RE ALL MADE UP OF THE SAME FUCKING COSMIC DUST) AND THEN GETTING ALL SAD BECAUSE THEY’RE ON DIFFERENT SIDES AND TECHNICALLY HAVE TO KILL EACH OTHER
CUE HER TRYING TO CONVINCE KEEF TO JOIN THEM AND VICE VERSA
CUE THEM BEING LIKE “DID I JOIN THE RIGHT SIDE??” AND HAVING INTERNAL CONFLICT
CUE THEM UNABLE TO FIGHT EACH OTHER (OR BEING ANGRY AT EACH OTHER AND FIGHTING EXXXTRA HARD TO PROVE THEY CAN)
CUE KEEF BEING LIKE SHES NOT MY SISTER. SHIRO WAS MORE MY REAL FAMILY THAN THIS RANDOM STRANGER FUCK THIS
CUE HIM GETTING ALL DEPRESSED CAUSE HIS FAMILY IS A SHITSHOW
(cue Lance comforting him and telling him it’s great her found his sister because having siblings is great oh wait this is my own self-indulgent fantasy)
and when they finally do make up and become real siblings, can you imagine them being like “so what was mom/dad like??” and the other being like “…well i don’t really know” CUE MY TEARS
gOD THIS IS GOING TO BE SO HEART WRENCHING IM ALL FOR IT. GIVE ME KEEF’S GALRA TWIN SISTER. GIVE ME GALRA LEIA. I NEED IT.
okay I'm going to ask you this because i've always loved your take on things, especially about malec. have you seen the sdcc trailer? do you think they'll break up?
No. I don’t think Malec will breakup.
About that trailer. I know a lot of theories are going around but, here’s what I think. Possible spoilers below so please skip this entirely if you don’t want them. I had fun discussing the trailer below but please take it with a grain of salt. These are, after all, just theories.
Been a long long time since I’ve drawn this boy. Dysis. He’s … something.
Honestly, I have no name for WHAT he is, but I do know that he is something of a sun/lava type deity. He’s also got a really terrible temper and seems to really like anime?? Not sure what to do with him, but maybe he and Taichi can get to know one another, lil culture shock for one of them (They both got lines through the brows so why not). lol, Dysis has no home and never really did. He’s just some weird enigma.
he says you’re a good man while wiping the blood from your hands. last week he watched you kill a man who wasn’t even shooting you, and yesterday you shot someone through your half-open car window because they cut you off in traffic, and each time you turned to find him right next to you. he runs a hand through your hair with a touch that is so delicate you wonder how they could call you killers; he kisses your blood-soaked knuckles and smiles wide like those fingers haven’t ended more lives than they’ve saved. you’re half surprised his mouth isn’t full of gold.
an hour ago you were pulling you and him from a lake, jacket around his shoulders, and throwing yourself to a rival crew to keep him safe. you call him midas with a bullet in your mouth, a gun to your head. and, midas saves you, a pair of sunglasses he’s been wearing almost since the day you met him perched on his head. your jacket is big on him and covered in too much blood to be comforting but he shrugs it off and steps towards you, and pulls you in close. when he touches you, you’re half surprised you don’t turn into gold.
you save each other’s lives too many times to pretend like you aren’t both trying to protect the other. you throw yourself between him and an explosion, and when someone points a gun to your head, he’s there. geoff says you’ve gotten soft and maybe you have, maybe the thought of him getting hurt has become the subject of too many nightmares for you to let it happen. and, maybe midas is a sloppy sniper but he has your back, this you know. in the next hour, when he gets shot, you’ll blame yourself for not being there. even gods bleed red. you’re half surprised his veins aren’t gold.
maybe immortality feels more like a curse sometimes, but, when he’s sitting next to you drinking a beer later that night, it feels more like a blessing. he says you’re a good man and god, this beer is awful all in one breath. you’re not a good man, far from it, but you have always done your best to look after him; that has to count for something.
– midas the god where he appears as a killer and a lover but not a god.
