In parts of the episode where nyma steals the blue lion the big flag is LITERALLY RIGHT BEHIND LANCE (made up of the bg) like the sky is pink and there's smth behind him that's purple and the ground is bluish if I had the screencaps I'd send them but it's like. That Has To Mean Something
…ok so i might of just had a realization though??
like, yeah, the bi flag colors are there
one might not think that the use of color in this episode is a big deal, but with the way this episode is set up? how can you not understand the subtext here??? the moral of the story in this episode is Lance doesn’t need to go flirt with other girls because it won’t work out for him (Lance went off with Nyma, but she turned around and stole his lion), however Keith rescuing his lion and unchaining him did work out in Lance’s favor. that, paired with the bisexual flag colors in the background, AND the rainbows too
and also including the fact that Keith was really eager to get Lance out of the pod and getting upset over him not remembering their bonding moment (and also the “i cradled you in my arms!” line),
you cannot just shove all of this into one episode and tell me this doesn’t mean anything.
and now i’m thinking back to what Jeremy Shada said about Lance maturing and eventually falling in love with someone in this interview
this right here:
that “one person you fall in love with a little bit”, my dudes, is Keith. it has to be Keith. who else could it possibly be?
you could argue it’s Allura, but she clearly has no interest in him.
but you know who does have an interest in him?
basically what i’m trying to say is i feel like this episode could be a metaphor for Lance and Keith’s developing relationship in the future seasons to come
I’m too busy to track what’s on the tags anymore so I’m just going to post this in case you guys haven’t seen it because holy crap it’s time to change my toaster for a new one! These are just a couple of the official photos from
twitters, form thesethreeposts.
Based off your response to an anon’s sad Viktuuri breakup!AU. Felt the call to write it, so I did… this is the result of 30 minutes, with little editing! :)
Viktor set the mop against the wall and wiped his forehead. Yuuri had decided it was the perfect day for some spring cleaning, and had woken Viktor up by throwing a wet sponge at his head. Apparently, ten AM was too late to sleep in, but Viktor couldn’t stay grumpy for long, especially since Yuuri was wearing Viktor’s striped shirt and looked completely adorable.
Yuuri poked his head out from the kitchen. “You almost done?”
He’d barely reached the bathroom. “Uh, almost.”
“Hmm, okay.” Yuuri’s head disappeared for a moment, and Viktor picked the mop up again.
“We can take a break in a few minutes and get some lunch,” Yuuri said. “Were you thinking of anything in particular?”
“Mm, you sound pretty good,” Viktor said, grinning and winking.
Yuuri flushed, and Viktor’s grin widened. He turned away, satisfied with himself, and was dismayed to realize that the floor was wet and his cashmere socks had no purchase on the slippery wood.
Makkachin bounded from the living room and began attacking his face with kisses, adding insult to injury, as Makka’s kisses made it relatively difficult to breathe without eating slobber.
“Viktor!” Yuuri yelled. “Are you okay?”
“Mission failed,” Viktor muttered, shoving Makkachin away. “Abort. Abort.”
“I heard something- oh.” Yuuri appeared at his elbow. “Did you slip?”
“No, I attacked the floor with my butt.”
“Oh, really?” Yuuri was clearly holding back a smile.
“What can I say? I’m talented,” Viktor said. He sat up and winced.
“Are you okay, though?” Yuuri stood and offered Viktor his hand, hauling him to his feet.
“I’ll be fine when I get lunch,” Viktor said, and in an attempt to save his pride he snaked an arm around Yuuri’s waist. “So, are you on the menu?”
“Good question,” said Yuuri. “I’ll answer it… when you finish mopping the hall.”
“Nooo!” Viktor cried, and Yuuri laughed, disappearing back into the kitchen.
