some voltron future season predictions for literally no other reason than potential gloating rights a year and a half from now:
each of the voltron lions were forged on different planets and made from unique materials.
ala black lion = guardian of the sky; came from a meteor that crashed on the Galra home planet
one of the lions will be badly damaged and they have to take it back to it’s home planet for repairs
haggar has a strong personal grudge against allura (or alfor) and thats why she turned against altea
possibly also an evil aunt, just saying
keith’s dad is not only still alive but hiding out somewhere in space, I would put money on him showing up in person in future seasons.
this would also go along with the ‘keith’s dad left him’ theory since he might have literally just been carried off into space.
he’s probably still kinda an asshole tho
i don’t trust him
another one of the original voltron paladins is alive, possibly a recluse in some far corner of the galaxy
possibly one of those crazy wise old people that teach life changing lessons to those they encounter.
i hope it’s the blue paladin and lance
alfor survived the attack on altea. we didn’t see him die so in my book, he ain’t dead. at the very least the time between when alfor put allura in the pod and when altea was destroyed is important and what happened there will be revealed to us before the end of the show.
he even says ‘if all goes well i will see you again soon’ to allura right before he knocks her out !!! that man had a plan !!!!!!!!!!!
coran was probably in on whatever alfor did bc he was put into the cyropod after allura, likely on alfor’s request to watch after her.
Hunk is going to go through some kind of heartbreaking tragedy that becomes his will to fight
I say this because Hunk is the only one of the paladins who doesn’t have a Reason for doing what he is doing yet. (Shiro = revenge on zarkon, keeping his team safe, + just being the kind of good person who literally wouldn’t rest until he knew the galaxy was safe. Lance = his desire to protect earth and to return home to his family. Keith = his quest for knowledge about himself and his past, Pidge = her need to rescue her missing family members, ect.) so maybe his Reason™ is actually going to happen real-time, all the more heartbreaking.
Lance and Keith will get stuck alone together somewhere and have to work as a team to make their way back to the ship.
it will be gay.
they will bond and lance will actually remember it this time
Lance will attempt to sacrifice himself for one of his team members
A paladin (probably Keith) will run away and then proceed be tracked down mercilessly by the rest of the team and there is a heartfelt reunion scene where at least 2 people cry (not including me)
somebody important to Keith dies. likely his mom or dad. because he’s tragic like that.
listen the fuck up it better not be shiro because i will FIGHT
Pidge will find Matt but not her dad. they have to team up to save him.
alternatively: they find Matt but he doesn’t remember anything about Pidge or himself (just like how Shiro still hasn’t regained all his memories but Worse)
Lance accidentally commits some kind of grave alien cultural offense and gets thrown in space jail, the team has to spend the rest episode working to save him before he’s executed.
Lance befriends his cellmate who turns out to be the Important Person the team came to find in the first place.
Keith gets attached to a cute, tiny alien pet and immediately risks his life for it
Kaltenecker returns, she lives in the castle in her own grazing pasture. Lance takes care of her and has full on conversations with her daily. like a living cow diary.
that’s all tune in next season to see if i bathe in the fountains of glory or return a Fool to my people
What are your thoughts on the lyrics of Dangerous Animals?
I love Dangerous Animals. The lyrics to me always embodied a sexual frustration/tension/desire he can’t get to. There are a lot of phrases in that song that fit each other “pinned down by the dark, to my knees you do promote me.” Humbug era Alex lyrics are trickier to decipher, especially a song like this. He tends to bounce around, with long winded ideas and concepts that leave you a little breathless and confused. However, his theme and mood are still cast pretty strong. I always liked in Dangerous Animals how he describes the acrobat falling off the beam, the audience watching. Those lines are consistent with the album’s overall theme and tone, the nonsense and the like… Carnival imagery he refers to throughout the entire album. I have another ask about Humbug, and I will write about this more in depth in that.
Anyway, I’ve always struggled with understanding what his message is in this song. Since I can’t actually go and ask him, and if I could he wouldn’t tell me, I can only guess. Usually my guesses have more confidence but this one I never really was so sure. Because he like steers the lyrics in a different direction out of nowhere. I’ll try my best, but don’t take my word for it. And if you have thought otherwise this entire time and want to disagree with me, you can. I have a very weak argument. I’m not sure if I’m right on this one.
The first verse starts with him fighting with his sheets, or struggling to sleep, because he’s frustrated. The well-told gripe. He just wants a girl. “You should have racing stripes the way you keep me in pursuit.” Gets me every time. I don’t need to explain that. “Then do my knees you do promote me” - he’s almost at her mercy, as if to say being pushed down by this girl is a promotion. (Similar theme in She Does the Woods. “She turns my back to the earth and shows me that’s where I’m meant to be.” I’m just assuming by his consistent bottom position he likes to be… Dominated? Inappropriate. I digress.)
He’s stuck in the dark thinking of this girl. “The light it fidgets though, the thoughts’ll soon revert to you…” He’s stuck in the dark, or presumably at night (another major theme on this album; night time, sleep, darkness) thinking of her again. “About as bashful as a tribal dance” - tribal dances are the opposite of bashful. His thoughts aren’t bashful at all. They’re enough for him to later say “so let’s make a mess lioness.” His head pirouettes, or spins around more than he’d like to admit to himself or to the girl he’s thinking of.
The lines I have always struggled with are his circus sounding lines, which are the ones about the acrobat falling off the beam. Where did it come from? Are his friends the audience, divided, telling him how he should feel about this girl? Is it her friends telling her to stay away from him? Who is the acrobat on the beam? Was he just like… this sounds right I’m doing it? (Maybe?) Those lines always stuck out to me because I couldn’t figure them out. I can’t make sense of them. If you have an idea, tell me. I’d love to know.
Some people/interviewers said that AM was the sexy, raunchy album that was kind of unexpected. I always disagreed because of Dangerous Animals. It’s him expressing a frustration, something sexual and laced in desire he can’t let go of. He’s losing sleep over it. He just wants her, doesn’t know how to get to her. It’s been long enough now, so just make a mess already. That line makes my stomach flip, every time. “make a mess, lioness.” Ugh.
My two cents on the new FOB song even though no one cares [before I dive in, yes I do like it a lot]:
1. One song won’t represent the whole album. According to Apple Music, it’s going to be 10 songs. You can’t decide that Mania is going to suck entirely just because you listened to Young and Menace and went “ew wtf”.
2. Fall Out Boy has always been a fucking pop band. In 2005, you had two sides to pop: the Beyonce/Britney/etc side and the pop-punk/emo side. They were all considered pop. Fall Out Boy returned from hiatus as a pop band. So if you wanna complain about how Fall Out Boy is now “suddenly pop” with this new song, I have news for you.
3. Experimentation is really important for artists. It’s okay for a band’s sound to change. You can’t expect them to sound like FUTCT forever.
