space brothers

Okay but if Keith knew Shiro had a crush on Allura, do you think he talked about it while he and allura were alone in the pod??

Imagine if Keith were trying to play wingman for Shiro, except he was really bad at it

“So… Shiro’s arm… it’s pretty cool… it could light up someone’s world.”

“Did you see how sweaty shiro was in training; it was moist.”

“He’d make a great father, even if his kids are half alien from a species he had only learned about less than a month ago.”

Or alternately: Keith being a little shit

“Once, when I was 15, Shiro got mad at me and locked me in the bathroom and the lock broke so I was stuck there for an entire day. He was so sorry he cried for three hours straight.”

pidge who lowkey really wants to go to prom but she doesn’t want to go alone so she decides just to get over it, except then lance, hunk, and keith find out and decide to all be her dates

they split the cost of her ticket and then help her shop for a dress and do her hair and makeup

pidge ends up having three different colored corsages, and not to mention the best prom pictures ever

the boys take turns dancing with her, spinning her around the room and tossing her in the air, and it’s the best night of her life

Okay but my favourite headcannon in the voltron fandom is where Shiro’s sense of humour is practically the exact same as Lance’s but he’s vowed to never, ever let Lance know about this.


He’s really serious about hiding it from Lance, it’s his soul goal/focus in life

Until the day when he accidentally texts Lance instead of Keith

Space Dad: Keith

Space Dad: my dude

Space Dad: my man

Space Dad: My little brother

Space Dad: My only living family member

Space Dad: My red boy

Space Dad: Hear me out

Space Dad: Next time we meet lotor let’s just dead ass look him in the eye and challenge him to a dance off

Space Dad: He seems like the kinda guy to accept

Space Dad: And u know I’ll win

Space Dad: I got them fly moves

Space Dad: It will be majestic

Space Dad: SHIT

Space Dad: A DANCE BATTLE WITH FUCKING ROLLER SKATES ON

Space Dad: don’t know where we’re gonna get roller skates in space but honestly? Not my problem

Space Dad: Keith why are you ignoring me this is a fantastic idea

Space Dad: How dare you disrespect me like this, today of all days, the day of my daughters wedding

Space Dad: no but why am I imagining lotor just wiping out and then hissing like a fucking cat

Space Dad: galra are a lot like cats

Space Dad: Keith fukc Keith r you a cat

Space Dad: AAGSJS UR A FURRY H E L P

Space Dad: Okay but c'mon patch the furry but at least respond to the dancing roller blade off w/lotor

Space Dad: This is absolutely 100% how u win a war trust me I’ve worn a cool army suit once

Space Dad: oh no ur not Keith fuCK ME BACKWARDS HELLO LANCE

Lance McMeme: what the fuck just happened

SOME THINGS I NOTICED IN SEASON 3

we’re talking about Voltron season 3 here so wATCH OUT

-We see Keith’s knife only once this season, and it was sheathed
-Pidge is trying to find her family in the first episode, but nothing about it is mentioned the rest of the season
-We got no flashbacks to Keith’s childhood or past with Shiro
-We saw baby Allura, but not baby Lotor
-#NOTMYSHIRO
-Kurōn means clone in Japanese guys
-Keith is dominant left-handed, but he’s actually ambidextrous
-Keith teleports the black bayard through his body to his other hand. I need answers
-So technically Zarkon and Haggar are dead?
-If Sven exists, do the other original “space explorers” exist too?
-if Zarkon and Haggar had Lotor, and if they had him after they were dead and revived by quintessence, wouldn’t that cause some problems with the birth?
-I know we’re supposed to assume that being in the rift and dying and coming back gave Haggar her powers. But what about the rest of the Druids?
-It’s apparently a Red Paladin thing to just leave your teammates and do your own thing on an impulse. Does that mean Lance is gonna start doing that?
-I think that Alfor is more like Keith than Lance, actually. If Keith had had a better past and childhood, he probably would’ve ended up a lot like him.
-How in the world are they going to defeat the new comet ship? Like I know that they’ll be able to, but how? It seems very impossible at the moment
-I have a feeling we haven’t seen the last of the Awkward Two Leaders moments
-Keith is absolutely on to Not Shiro. Did you see the way he was looking at him?
-I also don’t think Not Shiro knows he’s Not Shiro. He thinks he’s Shiro, but remember Young Justice with Red Arrow? I think it’s like that.
-The Black Lion so far hasn’t shown a lot of her personality to Keith, not like Red did. I wonder if she will later, or if she even has the ability to.
-WHERE??? DID??? ALLURA’S MAGIC GO????
-Why was Lotor exiled, and where? They’re obviously setting this up. And unless Galra have extended lifespans like Alteans do, Lotor was exiled pretty young. He appears to be in his early twenties right now. And he was exiled so well and efficiently that not a word was casually spoken about him in hallways and such that we saw. Is this part of the reason Lotor is so bitter towards his father?
-Lotor doesn’t treat Haggar like his mother. Does he know if she is his mother?
-Haggar had Space Amnesia, gaining a new name and identity while her husband presumably knew her original identity the entire time. That seems kinda sad. I almost feel bad for them.
-I stand by the theory Acxa is related to Keith somehow. Also, we know Keith flashbacked to the Weblum. But did she as well? If she did, then she’d remember he saved her life, right?
-Since Keith is in the black lion now, does that make him Space Big Brother?
-How is Earth doing rn
-I bet that Keith will tell the others that Shiro isn’t Shiro. And I bet none of them will believe him- except one. And it’ll be either Lance or Hunk. Pidge and Allura are too happy to have Shiro back. Hunk is suspicious and observant enough to come to the same conclusions as Keith, and Lance trusts what Keith says.
-“Take me to a space hospital”
-Young Zarkon looks like a lego

Every once in a while someone will tweet me an image of this character Philip Louis, from the Japanese manga (& Anime) Space Brothers, asking if he’s based on me. The answer is, “Yep”. The editor of the series got a kick out of how complicated my background sounded to him: American-Born🇺🇸 to an Argentine Mom🇦🇷 & Jamaican Dad🇯🇲, raised in Buenos Aires, returning to the US for college & later winding up in Japan 🇯🇵 (to create my own manga series Peepo Choo with Kodansha). Space Brothers started serializing through the same publisher around the same time. I watched some of the anime years later. This character, Phillip Louis, is a bit of real jackass…& though I’m told he’s a “lovable” character, I haven’t quite made up my mind myself. L😑L
