ok so i don’t have a lot of evidence on this considering i don’t have screenshots and i really need to binge voltron again but im making this off of pure memory so hear me out ok? im porbably looking way too deep into this lmao
I think Lance feeling like he’s a seventh wheel is completely justified.
Alright so everyone has had that moment where you make a joke and everybody just stay silent like it isnt funny, right? Well if you think about it, Lance has those moments every time he makes a joke or tries to lighten the mood, all of the time. Nobody really laughs at his comments or even pays much attention to them in the first place, only gets glares in return.
Now clearly, Lance usually cracks a joke for comic relief, but apparently no one else finds it funny. For example, he comes out of the pod after healing and everyone is happy to see him. But as soon as he starts talking, people just groan and act like, “Oh, it’s that Lance, he hasn’t changed one bit,” and act clearly annoyed. Even his idol, Shiro, acts fed up with his shit- which in some cases is justified, but most times, it shouldnt matter, he’s just trying to be funny lmao. Lance probably feels, unwanted, out of place, like he is the fifth wheel because no one really accepts him, and everyone finds him annoying.
Its not even just with Lance’s sense of humor, too.
People always think his ideas are stupid.
For example, the iconic scene where he keeps Keith from running straight into the danger that could get both of them killed, he suggests his alternate idea. Keith- who usually thinks Lance’s ideas are dumb, automatically jumps to the conclusion that his idea is going to be. Before he can argue, though, he works it out and sees that maybe Lance’s alternate route is a good idea.
People disagree with the way he wants to complete something, in season 2, Lance comes up with the idea to form Voltron in a situation and everyone vouches against it, however 30 seconds later, they end up forming Voltron, like he said, anyway.
Another reason, people also think little of him, they underestimate him, and that all starts with the Garisson. He was told that the only reason he ever got at his fighter pilot class was because his rival was kicked out of school, and without that he shouldnt have even been there. Again, he feels out of place, and like he doesnt belong. Then, his idol, his hero, Shiro, shows up, and when he finally feels like he has a purpose, like he could accomplish something amazing, but then Keith shows up. Even then, he doesnt give up, he is like “um excUSE ME BITCH I CALLED SAVING SHIRO FIRST” And once again, he doesnt want his rival that always beat him to do that once again.
And again in season two, there’s clearly favoritism happening between Keith and Shiro, and Lance is jealous of course. Like, he finally gets to meet and work with his idol, and when he wants to go with Shiro on a mission, SHiro chooses Keith over him. Man, I wonder why he’s so overdramatic about it. Its not like he was treated the same damn way at the gaRISSON OR ANYTHING NAHH
No, but clearly, he has an inferiority complex, especially when it comes to keith, because he knows hes better than him in every way.
People in the show also deny that he has any good skills, and even he himself starts to believe it, when sorta venting to the yupper. (i die a little inside whenever i see it)
I loved it when shiro gave him praise for once because it was specifically for him and not directed at the whole time. It was good job LANCE
And honestly the pride on his face was so heartwarming like omg thank you shiro for ackowledging him
im probably going way off track but anyway
daily dose of what its like in my mind 24/7 lmao
I hope in season 3 they kinda bring his insecurities up again as a sort of conflict i mean- with Keith possibly becoming Black Paladin, Lance is probably gonna be hella jealous and im sure thats gonna instigate a fight between them, and now theres not really a mediator. So. Fantastic…..
Guys i feel like a lot fo stuff goes right back to shiro, how lance probably aspires to be like him, or be good in his eyes and therefore be good for the rest of the team but hes having this inferiority complex because he feels unappreciated. Like hes just that annoying guy they dont really need and they could replace him if they wanted to, and keeping all of those thoughts hidden or masked by this confident facade is like
lance youre gonna break at some point
I hope lance gets the recognition and the acknowledgement he deserves in season 3 i swear he better not be tossed under the rug.

hello everybody! 2017 is (somehow) almost over, and i couldn’t be more thankful to you all for being a part of it! whether it’s through messages, asks, replies, liking/reblogging posts or even just simply following my blog, it really means a lot that you guys stick around so thank you :’D happy holidays to you all, and a happy new year as well!! <3
From a lost little duckling to a beautiful swan, thank you so much Emma for an amazing journey. You taught me so much about hope, love, fighting on, standing up for what you believe in and never giving up on myself. I’m forever grateful, you changed my life.
Hello, Elin here, actually trying to write properly for once! Since 2017 is coming to it’s end I thought it might be time to do that mutuals appreciation post I’ve been putting off for so long. It’s a good thing (or bad, depends on how you see it) I guess, cause I got way more mutuals by now. But before I start with tagging all my mutuals, I want to be sentimental for a moment, so please bear with me.
Warning for a lot of sappiness under cut!
2017 really haven’t been my year. If I’m being completely honest, it’s has been a goddamn awful year. I lost my grandmother, I lost my first girlfriend, I lost one of my closest friends. I’ve been depressed, angry, lonely, I’ve felt like I was down in the dirt and just going down. For a while I just felt like I wanted to die.
But 2017 was also the year I found BTS. It’s strange to me, because I have never been into boy bands, but already from the start there was something different about these boys that just spoke to me. With their lyrics, and their concepts that I can’t really wrap my head around, with their warm and down-to-earth personalities, I found something that made my days a little brighter. My only regret is that I didn’t find these beautiful human-beings earlier, but at least I found them and that’s what matters in the end. Right?
Not gonna lie, I was dead-scared of the fandom at first. I didn’t know if I was welcome, since I’m gay, and I wasn’t sure if being an ARMY would make people invalidate my sexuality. So I stayed in my own bubble for a few months; I listened to their music, I watched lyrics videos, music videos and other funny videos/interviews. I watched Bon Voyage, and I still have to work my way through all the content on V Live, and I just kept falling more and more in love with these boys, so eventually I created this blog. And I was still scared, I stayed closeted for the first 2 months. But I saw other ARMYS being strong and proud and open about being lesbians, which helped me and made me feel proud of myself, too. So, eventually, not only was BTS a bright star in my life, so was also all of the people I have met through running this blog, and I am so thankful for that. So even though I get so anxious about the things I create for this blog that I literally just log of for a few hours sometimes, seeing the appreciation I get on here makes my life a little better. And anything that makes my life a little better is a huge thing for me.
I just realized I might be rambling here, and I should probably stop typing, but I just wanted to say I hope you all know that I love you and that I am so so thankful that you have choosen to follow me. So honestly, from the bottom of my gay heart, thank you ♥
Now, let’s stop being sappy and move on to all the mutuals!

@whippedforsuga - Lynn, you are so sweet and nice and funny, and I enjoy our convos so much. You said you were honored I was going to mention you in this, I bet you didn’t exåpect a special mention? I don’t know why you wouldn’t though cause I consider you a good a friend and you mean a lot to me. I’m honestly so thankful you reached out to me out to me after I left the GC, cause otherwise, I would miss out on a great friend! So truly, thank you!
@seems-like-forever-ago - Sharon, you really are my true bias. You’re always so kind and supportive, and I’m so blessed that I can call you my friend.

You’re truly amazing and I honest to god love your humor and all your shitposts. I feel like I’m lucky that I’m able to call you a friend, because my life would be way more boring without you. Please don’t laugh at me for being sappy, but I wish you all the good in the world and that all your wishes come true.
@jinsbangtan - All my life I’ve been told to save the best for last, so that’s why I’m mentioning you last, Annie. You’re honestly such an angel, a blessing in my life. I’m constantly thankful for the Tumblr bot mildly intimidating me so I ended up writing you, because if anything helped me this autumn, it was you. I should tell you more often how much you mean to me, but I really, truly, consider you one of my closest friends, damn the distance, and I hope to be able to call you my friend for a long, long time. Thank you for putting up with me and all my rants, I wish you all the best and that you get everything you ever wished for.
That was it for my mutuals appreciation post. I love you all so much, let’s take on 2018 together! ♥
HEY CAN YOU TELL US MORE ABOUT YOUR ECLIPSE KINGDOM AU PUH-LEASE
HELL YEAH I CAN!!! ARE YOU READY? LET’S DO THIS!
BE PREPARED this ended up way, way way longer than I initially intended but yeah it’s 10 whole pages and 5k+ words of PURE SORIKU so I hope you like itttt
Okay so we have the Kingdom of Light and the Kingdom of Darkness, housing the princes Sora and Riku, respectively. In their Palaces of Dawn and Dusk they’re basically learning how to become kings and rule over their kingdoms in the future, all that jazz. Being royalty directly connected to the light and the darkness they both have special abilities, and can sort of control the light/dark. Sora obviously has better control during the day, and Riku during the night. They gather power from the sun and the moon, which also lead them to be called the Solar and Lunar princes!
The Palace of Dusk and the Palace of Dawn are about within an hour’s journey from each other on foot. If you stand in one of the palaces you can see the other palace within eyeshot out the window on the horizon. So basically they’re pretty close to each other, as they’re supposed to be–both of them come together and rest on the edge of twilight, linking the world together with both light and darkness. Due to this Sora and Riku practically grew up together. They’re not friends, not really, more like casual acquaintances. The reason for this is that even though they are linked together, they’re discouraged from associating with people from the other kingdom. Riku’s father in particular is super strict and highly dislikes it when Riku mingles with people from the Kingdom of Light, and tries to keep him secluded on their own side of the border. Sora’s parents, being more lenient, don’t really care whether Sora associates himself with people from the Kingdom of Darkness, instead they just warn him that those people are prone to falling into darkness and doing bad things (which is a mistake and a very awful stereotype that unfortunately Sora believes in from a young age, along with the goading of several of the palace employees). Of course Sora and Riku run into each other during events that their respective kingdoms hold, like balls and festivals, but they sorta rub each other the wrong way. When they were younger they got along better but were quickly discouraged from seeing each other due to their parents’ influence.
And the rest is under the cut to save you from endless scrolling :’)
Finally redid him in celebration of his appearance in the anime!! I’m so proud of how this turned out, the piercings took forever to glue on. I forgot about his nose studs so I had to edit those on, but I hope you’ll like it!
