i’m surprised nobody’s written up a transcription/description of the steven and connie space adventure vid? i heard it.
begins with clunky dialogue from Connie saying “I can’t believe I’m finally going on a mission with you to space! Steven and Connie, space adventurers!”
Steven shares the sentiment and then asks Lion to bend down. Lion does something cute and then obliges, Steven tells Connie to hold her breath, and the two travel through the mane.
They emerge on a planet/space station? I’m not sure, as it wasn’t featured, but you jump right into the action. Lars is commanding Flourite to fix [some sort of word for spaceship thrusters that starts with a P]. She says “Yes, captain!” He then tells the twins to do something else - I think handle the green Gem, and they also say Yes, captain - and Padparadsha says, late, “We’re under attack!”
Steven and Connie don’t have much to do, but everybody greets them. There’s a bit of a tense battle scene where the green Gem is screaming at everyone as she’s tied up, and references another Gem-controlled planet. “[Name] [Number]!” (Think of like Zephron 3 or something equally sci-fi).
Lars is like “If you didn’t want us stealing your ship, you shouldn’t have left it unattended on [another planet name] [another number]!”
Then the green Gem is shown onscreen. I have reason to believe that she wasn’t shown before now, because Michaela Dietz (the livestreamer) showed the screen right as the Gem was revealed, and everybody in the crowd gasped, making it seem like that was the first time we actually SAW the Gem who was shouting.
Then Fluorite announces that the space thrusters are powered up. The green Gem is like “You will not go into hyperspace!” (She explicitly calls it hyperspace, making me wonder why it’s not being called the gravity engine like before).
And then they go into hyperspace.
Please correct me if I got anything wrong!! This is just what I remember.
So like every other piece of Voltron trash I am hyped for season 3. Mainly because my favorite character, Lance, is going to get screen time. I’m so excited because Lance has been my favorite character since season one.
Also seven episodes (well that’s short =_=) and it’s going to be darker.
So this post I wanted to talk about some of the pictures I’ve seen and how I feel about it, and what season 3 might have. Now I could be wrong on some of these but it’s just fan speculation.
So first this:
Can I just say these two look so fucking beautiful in these pics? I mean you can see the blue in Lance’s eyes, I love it when you see it cause Lance has got some pretty eyes man!
But this is showing that Lance is the first one to comfort Keith about losing Shiro, I think that’s sweet. (I found other pics that showed everybody looking at the person next to them to see who’d talk to him and it landed on Lance) Their relationship has come so far for only three seasons. Then the others try to help and comfort him, and I freaking love it.
But I can’t get over how pretty those two look!
Then I found this:
I don’t know what it’s about but Keith seems pissed off about something. I don’t know what it is but these pics alone has got me wanting more. Why he so mad? What wrong smol one? All joking aside this pic not only excites me it scares me, like he seems so upset. When I look at this face I get a sense of angry, but scared. Like a sad kind of scared, worried is the word I’m looking for.
I can’t really say for sure what this is but seeing how it jumps from one expression to the next means something tragic has happened or something is about to go down.
WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK IS THIS?! IS LANCE IN THERE?! IS HE REALLY GOING TO DIE?! I’LL FUCKING CRY IF HE DOES!
Please tell me this doesn’t relate to the pics of Keith above. I’d rather have a fight about to start than this ^ I love this boy and he’d better not die… please don’t be so dark that you’re going to kill the fluffy baby! PLEASE DON’T KILL MY FLUFFY BABY!
Now that I’m done screaming about that… I saw a pic earlier that showed Coran looking at a black hole (or something) and someone said it tied into this, not sure if that’s true but that would explain why Blue is kind of just…floating around aimlessly, wherever she is… I don’t think they’d kill of Lance, I mean this is HIS season, why kill off Lance if this season we see him grow as a character? It would make no sense.
Okay I am done. I cannot wait for August now. I want to see what kind of shit they’re going to do with this season. This fan speculation is over. :3
Allura is the first to break the ice, “How did Lance even manage to acquire so much caljifian juice? I mean, it is not illegal, only five of the last planets we have visited sell it, and even then-”
“H-Hey, everybody,” Lance calls quietly from the doorway, a tired smile gracing his features. The smile turned into a frown, however, when his eyes landed on Shiro. As if a silent reminder of something upsetting, Lance’s entire body shifted into a different personality, suddenly serious and solemn.
“I mean, what’s going on?” The blue paladin asks sternly. He draws himself closer to the team. Closer to the bottles that Shiro had dug out of his room. Hunk pushes himself as quickly and as subtly as he can in front of the bottles, blocking Lance’s view of them.
“What the fuck, Lance?” Keith screeches at the blue paladin before Pidge can make up some excuse.
The black paladin coughs into his hand, “Keith, maybe we should-”
“No! No, Shiro, I’m really interested in whatever excuse Lance has as to why he’d put this team in danger,” Keith demands accusingly.
Lance tilts his head in confusion. “Uh, what are you talking about?” he asks with an irritated lilt in his tone.
With a scoff, the red paladin shoves Hunk aside -alarmingly, he manages to scoot him over a few inches- and presents the stash of “juice” bottles that had been previously hidden under Lance’s bed.
The Cuban’s eyes widen at the bottles newly presented. “Where did you get tho-”
“Where the fuck do you think, Lance? How dare you endanger your team like this, without our knowledge?” Keith sneers at his teammate.
Lance sneers right back, “Endangering you? Have you even been paying attention to my performance over the last few weeks? It’s improved a hell of a lot. You guys, apparently, didn’t have a problem with it. Oh, but now, oh, now you know I drink. So fucking what! I haven’t fucked up a mission since April! You guys should be happy! You all seemed to be fine with it, in fact, you preferred it when I was too drunk to flirt, too drunk to annoy you guys, too. Damn. Drunk. To fuck everything up!”
The yellow paladin flinches at the last word. “Lance, we’re not trying to-”
“Not trying to what?” Lance spits at the group, in the process he begins to feel Blue trying to calm him down. “No, Blue! We’ve been working way too hard to be getting this shit. You just want to be the center of attention now, don’t you, Keith?Now that I log more hours into the training room now, you’re feeling insecure about your position aren’t you? What’s the problem, now that I’m quiet and follow orders? Do you need entertainment? Is that what it is?” He advances, his long gait bringing him closer and closer to Keith until they’re nose to nose.
“Are you intimidated, Keithy-boy?”
Shiro pushes forward and splits the two apart. “That’s not what this is, Lance! Stop making this into a competition and listen to us for one damn second-”
“Oh? You mean like the way I’ve been listlessly listening to your commands and following them flawlessly for the past few months? Is that what you mean, Shiro?” Lance questions inquisitively.
The leader of the group sighs in frustration. “You know that’s not what I mean.”
“Then what do you mean? What do you want me to do? This is the best I can do, Shiro! This… this is the best…” and just like that, Lance’s strong demeanor drops and it’s just the same vulnerable Lance who’s only safe place was behind his jokes. With that and his resolve gone, he is open and unsafe. Tears fall from his eyes carefully and slowly. The blue paladin drops to his knees and he stares into nothing.
He feels the other paladins and patrons of the castle try to get a response from him. Even Blue urges him to wake from his blank state.
When the rest of the team figure it’s no use, Keith immediately bends to pick him up. “Uh, Keith,” Allura shifts uneasily. “Maybe someone else should-”
“I’m going to be there when he wakes up,” the Korean interrupts. Promptly and hurriedly, he steps out of the lounge and heads for his friend’s room.
Lance feels himself starts to drift, as Keith lays him down on his bed. He doesn’t, however, expect Keith to push him over and scoot in next to him. The raven haired boy rests his head atop his head and lays a quick kiss there.
“I love you, Lance,” exclamation marks went off in Lance’s head, even in this state. “We all do.” And the exclamation marks are gone.
Keith wraps himself around the blue paladin, and for the first time in weeks, it felt safe. Safe enough for him to fall into a dreamless sleep.
“Lance,” a sing-song voice brought the tanned boy from his slumber.
Such a soft, yet masculine voice. “Mmh, Beka?”
“Uh, Lance,” the voice clears their voice. “Wrong fandom.”
Oops. “Erm, Shiro?”
A soft sigh, “Close enough.”
Lance snickers to himself, “Keith, I know it’s you, I’m not that stupid.”
A short grunt and a slap later, the blue paladin finally opens his eyes. In front of him sits a concerned Keith, his eyes expectant. “Shiro is giving us the day, and..” he trails off. “We need to talk about things.”
Lance starts with a sigh, “Look, dude, I know you don’t care, so don’t-”
“Okay, Lance. First of all, no. Second, absolutely not what the fuck? I want you to do something for me, Lance,” Keith asks patiently, taking his friend’s hands in his own.
“Mkay,” Lance replies sleepily.
“I want you to listen to me, and I want you take my words into consideration, okay?” The raven haired boy assures quietly.
With a nod of his head, the Cuban asks a final question. “Did we sleep in the same bed last night?”
Keith blushes deeply, completely caught off guard by the sudden inquiry. “I dunno what you’re talking about,” he mutters. “Anyways,” he begins with a clap of his hands. “Lance. When we first met, I thought you were a useless cargo pilot who was only as the Garrison to joke around.”
“Aren’t you supposed to make me feel better?” Lance sasses.
Keith presses his finger to the other’s lips. “Uh uh, you, listen.” Lance nods, allowing his friend to continue. “Anyways, that was my perception of you, and I didn’t think otherwise. Until we ran into each other saving Shiro. You were so obsessed with one-upping me that you saved his life. That’s either stupidity or passion, but I’m going to go with the latter. But that’s not all. You’ve proved time and time again that you will go out of your way to help your friends in need, even if it means you have to sacrifice yourself. No one,” Keith breathes, leaning forward just the slightest bit. “No one can ask for a better friend than you, Lance McClain.”
With a raised eyebrow, Lance ponders aloud, “Friend?”
The raven haired boy freezes in place, the possibilities racing through his mind. The blue paladin tilts his head inquisitively, causing Keith to turn the corners of his lips into a full-fledged, bright smile. “Among other things.”
This is the day Keith and Lance share their first kiss.
Elizabeth Liones is absolutely amazing and here’s why:
1. She started off as a character who led a very sheltered life as a princess and watched as the people that were there to protect the kingdom turned against it, so despite never really leaving her kingdom (in fact never even seeing a silver coin before) set out all on her own in god knows how heavy of metal armour to travel across Britannia in search of a group of deadly criminals who she’s only known about from simply stories she was told as a kid. She believes that she, too, is useless, being a terrible waitress and simply being a princess until Meliodas tells her otherwise and she gains a little confidence to believe in herself more (which is a really important thing for everyone who has insecurities and thinks they aren’t good enough; they really are good enough)
Prior to searching for the sins; one was hiding away in a forest, one was held prisoner with spikes through his body, one was trying to find another to end them… they were all wanted people who were forced into hiding, Elizabeth’s quest brought them all together (plus they could have said no if they didn’t want to). Another thing? Look at how happy they are defending the kingdom and fighting the knights? Elizabeth didn’t bring them any trouble, in fact she probably made them happier by bringing them together.
2. Elizabeth is caring and courageous, she stands up for people, she puts herself between Gilthunder and Meliodas and Diane, she protects the little shepherd boy from being attacked by bugs, who turns out to be the enemy, and them purposely puts herself in harms way to break the bell from his staff to save Meliodas and Diane from destroying one another, at the end of arc 1 she literally offers herself as a sacrifice to protect Meliodas! She hasn’t done anything for any of the sins to dislike her? In fact she constantly stands up for what she believes in and tries to protect them?
3. Elizabeth is very smart example 1 being the fact that she figured out the bell was the cause of the enchantment placed on Mel and Diane. Granted, she is naive, but she’s a princess? The outside world is foreign to her? And like? Her personality is extremely caring and she sees the good in everyone, even the enemy.
4. This is a shonen magazine, fanservice is common.
And this is just the the first arc for the anime. Dont get me started on the rest of the manga.
Opinions are opinions and that’s completely fine, so this is mine.
Feel free to add to this
Sincerely, an Elizabeth lover
