permanently

After a year plus of beating around the bush, I’m going to come out and say it. That Kylo Ren stans, Reylo shippers and Kylo/Hux stans and shippers are actual real life Nazis. And I do mean ALL of them. No exceptions. Every single one of them, especialy the ones who go out of their way to write inane posts about how much Finn is a bad guy.e.t.c.

And if you know one of this people in real life, you should know they are Nazis or Nazi sympathizers which is basically the same thing.

The Star Wars fandom need to eject this people from the fandom. They are a cancer to humanity. They deserve nothing but scorn.

ok but at the start, they seriously told us with visuals who would pilot the lions, other than their designated pilots………………….

pidge and hunk are the only ones for green and yellow….

we don’t see a mini blue lion or learn anything about what it looks for in a paladin because lance interrupts, but we only get shots of allura and lance while the blue lion is being discussed….. allura goes on to pilot blue.

the red lion is in between keith and lance…. lance pilots red at the current time. this makes the shot of the black lion and who is shown with it very intriguing….

shiro is there, of course… then keith, his head completely in the frame. he’s now piloting black. then — barely there but there, nonetheless — there’s lance.

Here’s what I noticed when I was rewatching episode 2 of s3:

Red only opened up to Lance when Keith, Hunk and Pidge were starting to get outnumbered. If Lance was truly meant for Red, he wouldn’t have to be waiting around so long to convince Blue to open up for him. Red should’ve called out to Lance immediately. Instead, it took Keith taking damage to his lion, and repeatedly calling out to Lance for Red to actually open up and call out to Lance, as well. Almost as if Red was just mirroring what her paladin (Keith) wanted.

My point here? Red still shares a bond with Keith, and the reason Red opened up for Lance was because Keith was literally calling out to Lance in the midst of battle, which is why when Lance was like ‘maybe I’m not meant to be a paladin’ Red roared because no, Lance cannot be thinking that way right now when Keith clearly needs Lance with him on the field. So I see Red’s roar roughly as ‘listen, I know you have things to deal with but my son out there is taking damage and he needs on you on the field, so help me god you’re going to fucking get inside and come with me and help me protect my son.’

because literally this makes more sense than the bullshit explanation the show itself gave us. Because Allura has always been supportive of Keith as the leader. If that was the only criteria for Red to choose a paladin, it could’ve just as easily been Allura. But no, instead, Red, in true Red fashion, waited till the very moment Keith was in danger to open up to a new paladin. And of course Red chose the paladin Keith was repeatedly calling out to.

It’s similar to why Black opened up to Keith the first time, and now. It’s because Keith and Black were both doing this for Shiro. Similarly, Red and Lance’s goals line up. They both want to help Keith.

So in conclusion, I really don’t think Lance and Keith’s lion switches are permanent. It just doesn’t feel right to me. It really, really doesn’t. It’s also why we didn’t see Lance and Keith bonding with their new lions respectively. Something about them being in those lions feels way too temporary.

Because Keith and Red’s bond is too strong for Lance to permanently be Red’s Paladin. I genuinely think Red is just a stepping stone for Lance. And if somehow I’m wrong about all of this, I’m going to be extremely mad because it’s shitty writing if Lance is permanently the Red Paladin, and I’ll be convinced that the crew hates him.

Shiro is the only true Black Paladin and no one else comes close

here’s why i’ll never accept anyone else as a permanent replacement for Shiro as Black Paladin:

  • the Black Lion chose Shiro. she had everyone else lined up in front of her, so if someone else (Keith/Lance/Allura/whoever) was a better fit for Black Paladin, Black would have chosen them from the beginning. she didn’t, because Shiro is the best fit for Black Paladin
  • Shiro could fly the Black Lion perfectly from the beginning. he never struggled to pilot her properly, like Keith did in S3, because he’s the true Black Paladin
  • Shiro managed to get the team to form Voltron immediately. even though they pretty much all gave up, Shiro was able to turn things around and get the team to form Voltron. he never struggled the way Keith did in S3 because he’s a born leader whose team follows him without hesitation - just like the Black Paladin needs to be
  • he nailed the nosedive exercise on his first try. even though Coran described it as an “expert level drill”, he was able to do it perfectly and fly Black with ease by bonding with her and looking through the Lion’s eyes
  • he did the Paladin Eye Glow. none of the other current Paladins have done this - even Pidge, who bonded closely with Green in 2x04. even Keith, whose Lion has repeatedly come to save him. Shiro did it TWICE
  • the only other character we’ve ever seen do the Paladin Eye Glow is King Alfor - the OG Red Paladin and the creator of the Lions
  • the Black Lion saved Shiro from the robeast in 1x03. and she saved him again in 2x01. and again on the astral plane when he fought Zarkon
  • Shiro spent the first two seasons fighting for the Black Lion. he refused to let anyone take her and he fought to get her back repeatedly - just like she fought for him and defended him
  • when Shiro went to bond with Black in 2x07, she immediately showed him her history and let him see her memories through her eyes - because she desperately wanted to bond with him
  • Shiro fought Zarkon in the astral plane for the Lion - and won. he understands what it means to be a Paladin better than Zarkon - the OG Black Paladin
  • he was able to use his connection with the Lion to lure Zarkon into a trap at the end of S2. and his lil smug face after he manages it? priceless
  • he brought Voltron back from a complete shutdown in the S2 finale. even though everyone else gave up, Shiro never did
  • he activated the Black Lion’s wings, unlocked her teleporting powers, and stole back the black bayard from Zarkon. and he did it by bonding closely with the Black Lion. and doing the Paladin eye glow AGAIN
  • if Shiro was only ever meant as a temporary Black Paladin, we wouldn’t have seen two seasons of him bonding with Black and being able to see through her eyes, use her wings, or defeat her original Paladin
  • if Shiro was only ever meant as a temporary Black Paladin then several key storylines and plot points from the first two seasons now make no sense or fall completely flat
  • if Keith is supposed to be the “true Black Paladin”, then we should have seen him bond with the Black Lion, see through her eyes, share her memories, and activate her wings. we didn’t because he’s not the true Black Paladin. instead we saw him struggle to even fly Black in a straight line, because she’s not the right Lion for him

the only true Black Paladin is Shiro 

Shiro is the Paladin Black chose from the beginning; the Paladin she trusted and bonded with; the Paladin who was able to see through her eyes and unlock her powers. anyone else is just temporary. Shiro is coming back - and when he does, he’ll fly the Black Lion again. like he was meant to all along.
