@alluraofaltea posted something similar and while I don’t agree with some of her items, I did think it sounded like a fun idea, to see what people’s interpretations of the characters were. Special thanks to @fenfishtrap for pointing it out to me.
I’d love to see others do this too -
Keith - Hi, I’m the main character…I think. The show really can’t decide. I mean, I fit all the requirements, I’m the best pilot, my character design looks like it was pulled right from a Go Nagai manga, but I’m also a complete hothead, make the same mistakes over and over, and don’t learn from my experiences. One second I’m being told I should lead the team, the next I’m put out of focus for an entire season because my actor got a role that paid more. I would have a Freudian excuse for all this, except the only people who saw my moping about my mom were hardcore fans that watched an internet exclusive blog entry. Thanks to that everyone thinks my lack of character development means I’m flaming gay. Well, this season I’m going to try moping about not getting in the f*cking robot. Maybe at least that will lead to fans hooking me up with a hot redhead girl.
Also I’m half Galra which means either nothing or I have Hitler genes baked in.
Shiro - I’m the main character when the executives are done with the script editing. I’m also, depending on the fan describing me, either a shell shocked prisoner of war that just wants to sip a Corona on a beach and really should be out of the line of fire, Optimus Freaking Prime and the Chosen One, or a gay pedophile. My relationship with the Black Lion is about the same. Also I may or may not be a clone. I’m pretty sure that I’m supposed to be the Roy Fokker to Keith’s Hikaru/Rick Hunter, but I kinda suck at it on screen. Thankfully there’s fanfic because Shiro loves you baby. ❤️
My robot arm makes for a killer Winter Soldier cosplay at least.
Hunk - I’m the FOOD GUY. Get it? Because I’m fat which means I like to eat and literally have no other character traits. And yet out of everyone, I’m canonically the most successful with the ladies, so I have that going for me. Chicks love a guy that can cook. I’d mention my other skills and personality traits, but they’re kind of nonexistent, while my Japanese counterpart in GoLion was a judo master because over there, heavyset, stocky frames are common in sports like judo and sumo. Nope, I’m all about the food, and looking like an idiot. Usually because of food.
Pidge - Hi, I’m Katie, although everyone calls me Pidge, and it took four seasons to explain the nickname. Better late than never, right? Thanks to progressive writing, I’m now a girl, but everyone thinks I’m either trans or gay because I don’t have D cups. Yay being progressive. When the show bothers to focus on me, I’m actually pretty kickass, but the fandom still treats me like I’m made of porcelain. I may or may not have a crush on Lance (not that I’d ever admit it) but the fandom is also quick to label anyone who thinks so a pedophile. Even though he’s only two years older. Progressive! At least my brother thinks I’m cool.
Lance - Thank you, thank you. I am clearly the favorite character of the entire fandom even though most of said fandom portrays me, the confident ladies man and bundle of issues, as either a self loathing gay man or a male Disney Princess. The best way for the fandom to gay up something is to add me to it when I would rather find a hot girl to take with me on my lion. Then again, this is the same fandom that thought “hey man” was me flirting with Keith. More essays have been written about how I’m the real hero of the series and Keith’s alleged love for me than on the root causes of the US Civil War. I just want a girl to know the real me, you know?
I’m also canonically Cuban (not that it’s ever acknowledged in the show) which makes me one of a very few non-sterotypical Hispanics in animation alongside Miles Morales. And yet my fandom often portrays me as a MEXICAN stereotype instead. No, I won’t sing “Gasolina.” Shut up.
Allura - My original incarnation was the grandmother of shipping cartoon characters together, but because I’m the same age as Keith as Lance, as well as, let’s face it, my “character design change”, I am now a Strong Independent Black Woman That Don’t Need No Man, or a butch lesbian stereotype. This is despite two characters declaring me beautiful on screen. I may or may not have feelings for Keith but they’re about as consistent as who the lead character is. A lot of fans wish I just stayed in the castle ship even though I’ve gone on and on about wanting to honor my fathers legacy by being a pilot. People keep calling me “Space Mom” when I am terrible with kids. Again, probably because of my “character design change.” Without it, I’d probably be everyone’s waifu.
Lotor - The show can’t decide if I’m supposed to be Prince Zuko to Keith’s Aang or the Char Aznable to his Amuro Ray. Probably the former given the show’s complete hatred of all things mecha. I run things for about six episodes before being kicked out of the command room because it’s easier to write Zombie dad. The showrunners complete hatred of giant robots means I get to fly in a series of increasingly silly looking ships. Also I am NOT a rapist! Sincline was, and I am not Sincline! My old crush on Allura is gone, but let’s face it, it would never work out here. Also someone made a homemade body pillow of me, am I’m not sure if it’s flattering…or incredibly disturbing.
Zarkon - I make Cobra Commander look nuanced, and I am literally a zombie. I’m also the only one of these idiots smart enough to fight Voltron with a robot of my own, which you THINK would mean my dumbass son would make more of them.
Voltron - I’m supposed to be the latest incarnation of what Americans think of when they think of giant robots like how Mexico thinks of Mazinger Z and France thinks of Grendizer. Instead I’m a glorified cannon that is woefully out of place in this super cereal space opera. My five lion components apparently have minds of their own…maybe? Most fans (and the writers) forget I even exist even though the damn show is named after me! The show itself seems to have no idea how to use me, so I guess we’re all in the same boat. I’m pretty sure there’s more fanfic starring Shay than there are about me. Fans don’t even want me in a hypothetical video game, and Japan would rather bring back Combattler V for the next Super Robot Wars.
where Serena never died and Lucy grew up alone with her mom instead of the Kettles, Serena and Addy are badass zombie slayin sisters who don’t take shit from the man, and Murphy goes full dad mode when he learns that the man took Lucy
The zombie au is getting alive! Damn it, Voltron and his interesting aus! One day you’re just shipping it all, another day you think about all the possibilities you have in an au with intelligent zombie-galras, like, Shiro’s arm having some zombie-galra powers because they experimented on him. And what about Keith carriyng a katana? being bitten and all the Galra!Keith theory?? Hunk doing cooking and mechanics for his kids to survive? Pidge being a badass and making friends with Rover, the zombie-galra hand? Coran and his flower shirt can’t believe this shitty au. Allura of course, is buff mom and she ROCKS. And what about Lance? I mean I love to imagine him carrying a basketball bat, AND two pistlos like, woah aren’t you sexy killer? AAAAAND what if they have an impressive car named Voltron? I need to go find some references, I suck at drawing cars…
The terrible two’s were terrible. Y|S|N, our son just turned two years old about a week ago and ever since, all he does is throw temper tantrums. “NO!” Y|S|N screamed, throwing his toy across the room. I sighed. With Baron being away on the road, it has been difficult. I walked over to Y|S|N, picking him up. “Don’t throw things.” I spoke sternly, giving him a spanking. He started crying. I hate when I have to discipline him but that’s what I got to do to make him act better. “Daddy!” Y|S|N cried. “I want him too.” I told him, picking up his toys. Y|S|N wiped his eyes while sniffling. “Someone’s tired.” I said before picking him up. I carried him upstairs to try and put him down for a nap.

She is saved by a mysterious blonde

she catches sight of herself in a car window and realizes that her
hair is just as dank, and needs as much of a wash as his does.
Clark spots new people and new threats. Walkers aren’t the only
threats here. When she risks her life for a blonde (why? She doesn’t
know) and the blonde oddly seems familiar, like, in another universe.
Alicia learns how to kill walkers from her and also survive. Will
they find out why they are so familiar to each other? Will they

I have many headcanons, but this is one that I hold closest to my heart.
Years after the Strawhat Crew has gotten old and passed on, one remains. And that crew member, is Brook the Skeleton.
Brook will don his old, tattered black suit that Luffy first found him in, and set out on the back of his oldest friend, Laboon. On his back he will ride around the oceans on, singing EPIC songs of the Strawhat’s adventures. spreading the tales of the pirate king for eons to come!
But not on large stages. Not as the soul King. He will sing to sleeping sailors on ships at sea the story of the Mugiwaras riding to the sky island. He will play for disheartened pirates after a hard defeat, the story of Luffy battling against Sir Crocodile three times before he overcame! He’ll play his musical stories to the children of the blue seas while they play, telling them of the enormous Zombie King Oars who was toppled by a simple little rubber man from a little village just like theirs.
The parents will ask the kids, "How did you learn that song about the pirate king luffy?“ and they’ll chuckle telling mom a skeleton on a whale sang it to them
Hey :) Could I please request the Zombie AU with BTS and Exo?
I’m pretty much a group person, even if I have to distance myself sometimes, since I’m pretty afraid of losing or hurting people. In groups I always take on a kind of ‘mom’-role, or a leader, if no one else does it. While normally clumsy and a little shy, I put on a confident front and fight back if necessary. However, I’d probably hesitate towards hurting others. I resolve issues by talking, rather then fighting. Luckily, I can adapt to though circumstances rather quickly, bit I get a little harsh during the initial scare. I am also rather quick to open up to people, maybe talking a little too much. I often get told I’m a bit TOO kind for my own good, but I just don’t think that being mean or rude can get you very far.
Thank you :)
@lolsarahlolHello! Here you go, I hope you like it! Happy Halloween! ^^
Where you were when it started:
At the residential area. You had taken the bus from your friends place and you were on your way to home. Just as you got out of the bus you heard a weird growling sound coming towards you. When you first saw the zombie, you froze. Your brain just was not ready for that. And when you did realize there was a rotting human running right at you, the zombie was already too close. Before it got to you, someone yanked you back to the bus and pushed the door shut.
First person of your group that you meet:
Thank gods and all possible deities Xiumin had fast reflexes. In a blink of an eye you were safely inside the bus with the snarling undead outside. It took a couple of seconds until the other passenger understood what was going on and started screaming for the driver to step on the gas pedal before they all would turn into lunch meat. And so he did. As the bus sped and headed downtown, you had some time to gather yourself and start planning what you’d do.
Other people in your group:
What is your hideout?
The underground and occasionally the sewers. Soon after getting out of the bus you, Xiumin, who you had sort of befriended on the bus, and J-Hope, incredibly frightened passenger who teamed up with you two, realized that all the exits out of the city would be jammed shut after the word about the zombies got out. After a quick visit to the store, the three of you dropped down to the sewers and eventually made your way to the underground network. After spending months down there all of you knew your way around easily and had made your base at a control room.
What is your weapon?
A Crossbow. It took a while to find one but it’s the best option when you’re in closed space like underground where firing a gun could be dangerous. It is also quiet!
Who saves you from zombies:
Kai had made his way to the metro tunnels by himself. The only reason you, Xiumin and J-Hope were even able to meet him was because you ran into him when the three of you were examining a station in hopes of finding food. Apparently the zombies were also doing that, because they surrounded you all in no time. The luck was in your favor however, because Kai had just looted the gun store in the street above the station and was heading back underground just as you were attacked. After that you convinced him to join your group.
Who you grow really close to:
Jimin was the last person to join your group. He happened to be an exchange student in your city so he didn’t really know where to go. He bumped to you four in an already abandoned metro station where he was hiding and joined your group. He was far away from home, all alone and terrified for his life. You were the one who he started trusting first. You were so open and kind, he felt safe in your presence.
