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.
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.
Academy AU where all of the students are dragon/human shapshifters. Each student has an amulet that helps them “control the dragon” and the school staff is responsible to teach student learn how to maintain their human form without depending on their amulets, along with other useful skills – flight/speed training, normal school lessons, how to manage both forms, etc.

ok look i kno its late but its still the fourteenth here so…
I do not know if you even consider promots and if you don't I am very very sorry but just in case that you do... >_< "Akaashi breaks his car to have an excuse to talk to the local car mechanic (Bokuto). This is the third time within 2 months. This is getting out of hand." Also to another note i reread Savior after bingereading Burn and. Everything. Was. So. Well. Compared. To. Burn. :D And. Thank you for your fics. They are some of my favorites in the fandon to the date. :)
(thank you! and yeah um… burn got away from me a little…)
“Wow, ‘Kaashi!” comes a grating laugh from under his hood.
Akaashi’s eyes flicker up to make sure Bokuto is still focused on the cleverly sabotaged engine of his car, then back to the shifting muscles of Bokuto’s arms, covered in grease and dirt that should not be as sexy as it is.
“You sure do have bad luck with cars, huh?”
“Yes,” Akaashi says. “Terrible luck.”
Luck has nothing to do with it. Hours and hours of Google, maybe, to figure out what is the least conspicuous way to cripple his engine until a certain beefy mechanic can repair it.
And also hours of analyzing Bokuto’s schedule to make sure he’s the one working on it.
Not to mention careful spacing of visits so he doesn’t come off as suspicious.
Akaashi is starting to think maybe it’s more than just the muscles he’s here for, but as Bokuto leans forward Akaashi’s eyes are drawn to his ass and for a moment he feels that perhaps, in this case, these muscles might be worth this kind of effort.
“So, how’s that merger going?” Bokuto asks, because apparently he’s actually been listening to Akaashi’s meaningless small talk well enough to remember what’s going on in his life. That causes an odd feeling to flutter in the base of Akaashi’s gut that has nothing to do with muscles.
“It’s essentially finalized,” Akaashi says. He’s suddenly struck by the feeling that he doesn’t want to limit this conversation to chatter. He wants desperately to ask something person. What’s your favorite color? What was your first pet? Are you single?
“Are you getting a raise?”
“A small one, yes,” Akaashi murmurs absently.
“I guess that’ll come in handy,” Bokuto says, casually. “If you’re gonna keep spending on fixing your car all the time.”
Akaashi hums, trying to think of a personal question that’s not too obvious.
After a moment, he notices Bokuto grinning over his shoulder at him.
“Oh,” he says.
“Yeah,” Bokuto replies.
“I was so careful, too,” Akaashi says.
“’Kaashi, it’s been 3 times in under 2 months and your engine is perfect. You coulda done anything to this car and I woulda known,” Bokuto laughs. “I’m not very smart, but I know cars!”
Akaashi wants to know Bokuto well enough to successfully refute that claim, because he can see the glittering cleverness in his eyes after just a few meetings. However, he’s not sure how to make the transition from “the creep who intentionally sabotaged his car to see a mechanic” to someone that Bokuto might go on a date with.
Bokuto leans over him and pulls aside his suit jacket. Akaashi’s heart stops in his chest. Bokuto slides a paper into his pocket. “Call me,” he says. “Today’s repairs are on the house if you pay for dinner. But I eat a lot, ‘Kaashi, so choose wisely!”
“I eat more,” Akaashi blurts.
“Oh yeah? Wanna bet?” Bokuto says with a lopsided grin.
Akaashi manages to find his tongue. “Yes,” he says. “Yes I do.”
