teen look book

I wanted so badly to lie down next to her on the couch, to wrap my arms around her and sleep. Not fuck, like in those movies. Not even have sex. Just sleep together in the most innocent sense of the phrase. But I lacked the courage and she had a boyfriend and I was gawky and she was gorgeous and I was hopelessly boring and she was endlessly fascinating. So I walked back to my room and collapsed on the bottom bunk, thinking that if people were rain, I was drizzle and she was a hurricane.

And sometimes you’re 16 years old and love someone so much that you won’t care how they treat you. You’ll be so goddamn in love that you’ll ignore the toxic signs this person carries and justify their actions to your friends on the nights they find you crying on the floor. “He just cares about me” you’ll say, but you’re trying to convince yourself more than them. It won’t be until you’ve shaped yourself into his ideal and he leaves anyway that you’ll realize he sucked up everything you were, that’ll be the moment you realize you’ll never be good enough for a toxic person. They will love you selfishly and make you believe there isn’t a you without them. And when they do leave, you’ll be the one picking up the broken pieces.

Apparently the Paladin's Handbook defines Shiro's exact age as 25, so we at least have a canon age for it now? But my question is, how old is Allura then? She's described as being "old as anyone else", but the paladins range from 15 to 25, so that's a ten year gap. What's your take?

lmao but if you want an actual answer:

according to season 3, Allura is older than Voltron and has been piloting the Castle Ship for “half her life”. she comes from a race that canonically ages much slower than humans and lives a lot longer, meaning she’s probably been alive for over 100 years, even if she’s still considered “young” by Altean standards. the timeline of the history of Voltron that we saw in 3x06 tells us that Allura was born before Voltron was made, so she’s been alive for the entirety of the OG Paladin era, PLUS Haggar’s downfall, PLUS Zarkon turning to the Dark Side and going into the rift, PLUS the war that happened afterwards.

yeah fam… she ain’t young.

i base my estimates of character ages on the actual canon of the show, whereas this fandom loves to ignore canon and instead base their age estimates on… idek random toy packaging and cereal packets? spin-off merchandise designed to sell toys and make money doesn’t count as “canon”, and neither do comments made by writers and/or VAs at conventions or in interviews.

actual canon portrays Shiro and Allura as roughly the same age, with a similar level of maturity and a very equal relationship. therefore to my mind, Allura is roughly the Altean equivalent of Shiro’s age, i.e. a young adult.
