Watching Voltron Legendary Defender I began to notice something that the entire team has in common: they all without question protect Pidge. The team will go out of their way to make sure Pidge is safe, and anyone who attacks Pidge is immediately dealt with.
Pidge draws the attention of the commander?
Turn the commander’s attention onto you.
Falling down a slide of death? Put Pidge on your shoulders out of reach.
Pidge is almost never standing by themself. Someone is always near them, and normally? It’s Shiro and Hunk, the two biggest guys on the team.
You will almost never see Pidge on the edge of the group, Pidge is never exposed.
Not even the sloth thing touches the Pidge.
Everyone else is complaining? We can keep going. Pidge has a breakdown? REST TIME.
It was all verbal until the Princess threw food goop at Pidge?
GAME ON, ALLURA. Immediate retaliation from Keith.
There’s a thing falling at you, no way is Shiro going to let his Pidge get squished.
Nothing harms the Pidge.
Alien has Pidge held in painful grip, rest of the team can’t do anything?
LANCE WAKES UP FROM A F**KING COMA TO SHOOT THE ALIEN!
In short? Pidge is precious and must be protected at all costs. You touch Pidge? The rest of the team will make you regret it.
“When I saw the creature swimming under Julie Adams [in Creature From the Black Lagoon], I thought three things: I thought, ‘Hubba-hubba.’ I thought, ‘This is the most poetic thing I’ll ever see.’ I was overwhelmed by the beauty. And the third thing I thought is, ‘I hope they end up together.’”
Here’s to the new me. The old me. The you-don’t-even-know-me. To the me that died twice before I met you: third time’s the charm. Been chewed up and spit out more than I’ve ever seen a sunrise, and I’ve only ever liked sunrises when I’m with you. I’ll become something you’ve never seen before, nothing borrowed, nothing blue. Set my head aflame, built a home out of the ashes, let the wind blow it away into the sun. The breeze sings, lo que está muerto no puede morir. And when there’s nothing left to burn, you have to set yourself on fire.
I don’t know that kid anymore, and maybe I never knew him at all.
