Kinda a random question but what do you think the paladin gang would each be like with cold weather? Like, different strategies of coat wearing and so on
So like on the one hand Lance is from Cuba which is pretty warm, and went to the Garrison which seems to be somewhere southwestern US, but I can just imagine Lance being super pumped about snow because he hasn’t had too much experience in it, he is gonna do everything, go ice skating build a snowman. His burning enthusiasm will keep him warm.
Watch him get overenthused, go tearing outside without a jacket or proper insulation and not even notice right up until he runs out of distractions or has to wait and then he’s miserable.
Shiro I imagine is a good sport about it and dresses solidly but he like… slowly wears down over time, sooner or later he’s cold and wet and it gets to him so for him it’s a time game. How cold is it, how adequately insulated is he, and how long does he have to be out there. Eventually he hits a threshold and it’s just “well. this is it. leave me here to die. it was an honor”.
He was in better shape to deal with the cold but I stand by the headcanon that his missing year pretty much stripped out an unhealthy amount of subcutaneous fat, so he has No Insulation At All.
Hunk is ambivalent to cold because he has the power of always having super warm hands. In general I like the idea that he has great circulation so he’s well-suited to the cold but also he’s pretty assured about, ha ha no he’s not going out there unless it’s pretty dang important and nobody else can do it, have fun guys he’ll make you cocoa when you get back.
Allura probably gets along just fine with the cold considering Altea was seemingly a very mountainous planet, so she has suitable cute winterwear and thick blood/good natural defenses. Coran’s in a similar boat but he can’t resist that “Oh, you think this is cold why when I was twelve I spent a winter on Yaxni V and it snows nitrogen there”
Pidge is just that kind of person you want to tuck an extra scarf onto just by looking at her so in a show of Youthful Rebellion she tends to go underdressed when she goes out in the cold and then regret it. She’s not that wild about playing outside but if a snowball fight starts she rapidly goes into Take No Hostages mode.
Keith. Keith’s genetics will not let him forget that he’s actually probably supposed to have some kind of fur coating. I personally have a read that galra are only mostly endotherms and that this applies to Keith so a certain amount of him being miserable in cold weather is harmless.
A certain amount of it is he actually genuinely needs to watch his core temperature and stay insulated because he can get dangerously cold alarmingly easily.
