this has a lot of implications…it implies that Keith knew that he was going to be talking about some emotional stuff before doing the vlog. And what is the vlog for anyway? Did Coran tell them it was a diary of sorts? Did he tell the paladins to just talk about themselves? If the latter is the case, then this video is very telling of how Keith views himself, and what aspects he believe’s defines him. Most people when told to introduce themselves, they talk about things that they think defines them. And these are usually things like interests, hobbies, views, etc. But Keith doesn’t talk about any interests or hobbies. He says he pilots the black lion and he’s a paladin of Voltron, but that’s not necessarily an interest, even though he’s extremely dedicated to the cause. Instead the most he talks about are his flaws and abandonment issues. It’s very likely that Coran told all the paladins to make at least one vlog entry for future generations. Keith was probably like “But what should I say?” and Coran was probably like “Just tell them about yourself.” and what Keith decided what was most important to tell about himself was that he pilots the black lion, he’s a paladin of Voltron. He has trouble connecting with people, he has a temper, and he thinks it’s because his mom abandoned him and that he pushes people away so that they don’t reject him. These are the things that Keith thinks defines him. And he was obviously prepared beforehand to talk about these things, promising himself that he wouldn’t cry.
Can we all just take a moment to appreciate Shimada Makoto and all he has done for our precious shared son, Yamaguchi?
So, the man takes time out of his busy schedule to mentor this shy little fifteen year old with confidence issues and help him with his volleyball technique. Now, that’s extraordinarily nice of him to begin with but this sweetie doesn’t stop there, oh no! He then comes to cheer at all the matches when there’s never any real family present. I mean, Yams has got so much more confident and independent over the course of the series and, being honest, so much of that can be traced back to Shimada’s constant support and his believing in Yamaguchi’s abilities before anyone else, even Yams’s best friend Tsukki, could even see those abilities were there.
Just look at him, look at that proud mentor! He knows exactly what’s got Yams stuck when he’s about to serve and how to solve it, so he sprints round the court like his life depends on it and just awww.
You know Rock Lee’s shipping fandom is the greatest of all when nobody cares about who Metal Lee’s mother really is in canon. Just check it out and ask to whoever ships Lee with a canon or non-canon character…
GaaLee Fandom:Metal is Gaara’s son and he has three precious siblings
LeeTen Fandom:Metal is TenTen’s son, that explains the name.
NejiLee/NejiTenLee Fandom: Metal is Neji’s son, he is alive you fools!
LeeSaku Fandom:Metal is Sakura’s son, both he and his sister Sarada are hardcore fighters
LeexOC Fandom:Metal is my OCs son, just check out this fanart.
Now try to say something bad about Metal. Here is the answer you’ll have in return.
No i didn’t mean his ass. Scenario: the team is fighting Galra, they didn’t even form Voltron yet, they are unlucky because there’s a black hole near the place of the fighting. And the fighting proceeds really not as the team would want to. And Keith is on the line of fire - so Lance jumps to the rescue - how could he not, now finally he would be able to say that he saved oh that great Keith from imminent death (but really, that stupid mullet is his friend so tbh Lance is ready to die for him just because, but shh, don’t ruin his reputation, Keef doesn’t have to know, it’s all for bragging purposes)
But what Lance didn’t take under consideration was, when he help out Keith, the attention went to him and Lance was pushed dangerously near the event horizon of the black hole. But he bravely fought the Galrans and came back as quick as he could.
But… it was 4 years later. He even didn’t realize how close he got the black hole. His time was alerted. He was still a 19 years old boy, surrounded but his friends… 4 years older then him. They welcomed him warmly and with tears in their eyes, with apologies and hugs. Even Keith teared a little, because boy blamed himself for what happened. They couldn’t form Voltron for 4 years… but they built a resistance. Lance was impressed how much changed. But also sad how much he missed.
But not only that saddened him. He already didn’t feel equal at the start… and now. Everyone is 4 years ahead of him. Stronger, faster, quicker. They became true warriors. Paladins of Voltron. And Lance… Now Lance value himself even less. How can he match them now? How can he fit? How can he shine among them with something special? When they worked so hard for 4 years to connect, to be stronger, to fight better, to shoot more precisely, to fly faster. When they bonded so much - without him.
Lance is glad he helped Keith - because God knows how badly it would have ended without his intervention. He is glad he sacrificed himself back then… but the problem is that Lance thinks about himself in past tense. Exactly. He sacrificed himself. Lance feels like he’s dead, like he’s just a ghost of the past and that he cannot fit the team anymore.
And the team tries hard to prove him wrong… and how much they missed him how lonely they got.
The question is: is it possible for Lance to believe he’s not only a burdening ghost of the past?
(you can interpret it as any ship or no ship i don’t mind)
(if someone would like to - my god maybe i am to bold to say that… - turn it into an art piece or fanfic, go ahead just tag me/inform me)
