Do you have any headcanon for Keith/Pidge platonic relationship?
Do I?? *cracks knuckles*
- Keith is an all or nothing kind of guy. When he was a Garrison cadet he was 1000% committed. After the Blue Lion started calling to him out in the desert, he lost focus at the Garrison, and now he’s 1000% about being a Voltron paladin. Which is why he had such a hard time with Pidge at first. He didn’t get how she could be both committed to Voltron and at the same time need to take a break to find her family. After the Fall of the Castle of Lions, Pidge and Keith have a shouting match in private. He yells, she throws (small) things. They both have a temper and so neither one feels like they have to hold back. In the end they realize they’re both shouting the same thing at each other, and end up laughing at themselves. That was the real start of their friendship.
- When Pidge gets anxious, Keith will do stupid things to wind Lance up, just because he knows she’ll smile.
- When Keith gets broody or feels socially awkward, Pidge will sit next to him with her laptop. She won’t force him to talk, just sits and lets him know she’s there. He can’t thank her enough, even if he never knows how to show it.
- As the two arms of Voltron, they spend a lot of time in each other’s head during battle. They get really good with the sword and shield, and eventually that starts to carry over to their downtime. Pidge will toss a bread roll over to Keith at the table and he’ll catch it without looking or talking about it. They have an understanding.
