warning for negativity/venting.
I don’t really buy 17!Keith much. Looking at the “teens” label, I just squinted and said “okaaay” for them in the beginning, then things blew up, despite the vague terminology used and how not well thought out things seemed to be.
If they declared that the Garrison was more of a high-school based institution as canon, like actually in the show or in official print, and that they were in HS years, then I would have just accepted it, even though I can’t see Keith.
If they had said clearly from the start that he was 17, I would have owned up to it even if I didn’t agree as I headcanon otherwise, and steered clear from nsfw content, at least for now.
Now I have no intentions of accepting Keith as possibly as a minor and Shiro as any older than 23. After a year of being stubborn about my headcanons, I can’t possibly. And staff remains to be inconsistent.
This truth remains: I believe most of the art I reblog portrays them both as adults. Most Sheiths do. I’ll continue to do as I always. But to be honest, it’s going to be harder for me.
