Can you explain your reasons about being against 'Space Dad' Shiro? I've seen others against the idea and just wanted to hear yours.
Roughly, I think that it separates him from the team more than it really does and it feels like it makes light of, or even suggests is a good thing, Shiro’s tendency to short himself to try and be there for the team. Again, that’s why I talk about him being like the eldest child who’s trying to fill in as another parent.
I’ve often seen it taken literally, and Allura also roped into this “parent” role with Coran made absent and the other paladins infantilized in AUs or such.
