I was talking to my friend about Voltron(mostly Lance of course) when I came up with some Lance angst. I typed it all up and thought I should share so here it goes.
I sometimes lie awake at night unable to sleep because i have no idea what Allura was going to say about the blue lion before Lance interrupted her. That and how the information applies to his role on the team.
I know that people are all like “Keith always jumps in to save shiro” and all that jazz but what about Mr. “save Coran from explosion” Mr. “Desperately misses his family” Mr. “mom’s hugs”
So what if they get seperated and Lance does whatever the heck he has to in order to bring them back together
And when he finally succeeds he’s got new scars and a solemn maturity about him
he still jokes around from time to time but subtly does whatever he can to make sure they are always safe
Checking on the crystal, running regular system diagnostics, making sure each of their comm systems are working properly, running checkups on each of the lions, always bugging the team about helmet safety, asking Coran to teach him about Common Diplomatic courtesies so he doesn’t accidentally cause hardship when they meet with new Kingdoms and governments
never allowing the team to see him shirtless any more because he doesn’t know how he would deal with the questions when they see his heavily scarred chest and/or back
but of course someone sees him when he’s not paying attention. he’s facing away from the door when they walk in casually but then they freeze and dart out and press their back to the wall in their room a hand over their mouth trying to hold back tears or panic or both depending on who it is
Edit: I typed this up on my phone so excuse formatting
