New Voltron OC~ Ilexia one of the champions

Screenshots from episodes 4 and 5. Things that are important here: the use of the words team and family.

Keith doesn’t want Pidge to leave the team, but he doesn’t specifically mention the team. He mentions people’s families, which is what Pidge was worried about. No doubt he was attempting to make her reconsider by using a word she was inherently interested in and was sensitive to. Others have mentioned before how ironic/nice is is of Keith to say that specifically, considering he’s an orphan and how the reason he wants Pidge to stay is because she, along with the others, are his family now.

It’s actually Shiro who uses the word team. He tells Keith that people can’t be forced into the team, they must want to stay. He’s not talking about family (specifically), but about the team of paladins they have formed.

Then cut to episode 5 and after they’ve dealt with Sendak, it’s Shiro who starts saying he can’t help but feel like Pidge was meant to be part of the team, but won’t stop her if she wants to leave. That’s when Pidge recalls her father’s words that his team was like family. Pidge is the first person to associate the two words, and Keith immediately says “welcome back to the team”, a clear call back to Shiro’s words back in episode 4 about how a team/family can’t be forced.

Keith is welcoming her back to his family.

Okay but sheith cheaper by the dozen au

or not really au, just post canon

Keith was an orphan and never had a family growing up.

Shiro had very loving parents, but was an only child.

They both want so many kids they’re bursting out the wazoo.

Keith signs them up to be foster parents, and they get a giant house with a ton of land, and the kids start rolling in, and they end up adopting so many.

And it’s hard sometimes, with keith seeing the abuse and neglect he had all throughout his childhood reflected in his kids’ eyes. But because of it he knows how to help them even more. He make his home a loving place, where they don’t need for anything, where he sits them down and asks them about their day, and he helps them with their homework, and hey can have as much food as they want, because fuck you, the fridge will never be locked in his home. And he makes an effort to spend time with each and every one of them, and learns their interests, and notices when something is wrong, dammit. And he won;t ever let anyone hurt his kids again. No one gets to label his kids as ‘problem child’ or ‘trouble maker’, not while he’s around. Just mama lion keith okay.

And shiro never having to fight again. Coming home to 13 people (and 3 dogs, and 2 cats, and 8 chickens, and 1 cow) who love him. Who help him on his bad days, who help him look out and avaoid his triggers, who absolutely unconditionally love him no matter what, because he is not a monster.

And they live their lives, never being alone again. They have giant, loud meals, and chaotic outings, and plenty of drama sometimes. But they also have giant cuddle piles, and fill up an entire row and a half and musical recital and graduations, and the christmas tree is practically levitating from the flood of presents spilling out underneath it, and thanksgiving dinner is always late because it takes ages to get though everyone listing off what they’re grateful for.

And sure, the kids grow up, and move out and have their own families, but that’s okay.

Because they have 36 grand kids.

The kogane-shirogane house is never quiet, but it’s never empty either.

Hopes for VLD Season 2

Things I want to see in Voltron legendary Defender Season 2:

-Lance given more credit where he’s due! I mean yeah he deserves to be reamed out because of his behavior every once in awhile but he is wicked talented and smart! He was second, only second, behind Keith in  class standings.

-I want to see more of Lance using his bayard to take a wicked shot.

-Keith opening up to the team more. He needs to let them love him!

-Shiro slowly becoming more confident in his role as leader.

-Let’s see some more of Pidge’s amazing technical talents hmm?

-Hunk, I mean… we haven’t seen much of what Hunk can do! Let’s see some more spotlight on this lovable big guy.

-More depth into the culture of the Alteans. I know I want to see what Altea was like before Zarkon messed everything up.

-More family moments! Bring on the support, comical petty arguments, hysterical situations, and more of Dad Shiro! :P
