Laith vs Klance (aka I can’t stop laughing)
The whole Laith debacle from SDCC is honestly so HILARIOUS to me.
Because I have such vivid images of poor, poor poor Lauren silently fuming at the voltron fandom for over a year now.
Like I can just imagine her, sitting down 3 years ago or something to go over the scripts and storyboards. And she’s wondering how the show will be received when it finally premieres. Will people like it? Will they not? Who will be the fan favourite characters? What episodes will people quote the most?
But also…. ALSO… because she’s not an idiot… I imagine her knowing that Keith and Lance will be shipped together, and she’s cackling to herself as she’s writing these episodes with Dos Santos. She knows that these characters will be shipped together, and she’s been referring to them lovingly as “Laith”. FOR. YEARS.
Then season 1 premieres, and she releases her babies into the wild. This thing that she’s been working on and stressing over for years. Now she will finally be able to see how people enjoy it. What jokes are coming out of it, all the amazing fan art…
But creators don’t name ships. Fandoms do.
And I imagine her… seeing the first bit of fan art tagged as “Klance”… just stopping and going
And basically she’s been in a silent rage for a year now. But then SDCC happened and she went “FUCK YOU SHITS, YOU HAD ONE JOB.”
