“Its great everyone is so incredible, its really a dream come true”.
“That’s great Tom” You chuckle.
“Yeah, wish you were here though”.
“I know, but you know I just can’t get up and leave school”.
“I know Love, it just feels weird not being with you”.
“This isn’t the first time you’ve been away Tom”.
“It still feels weird” There was a silent pause from him.
“I miss you”.
“I miss you too, when are you coming home” You leaned into your phone.
“Soon I promise, I’ve had this busy schedule, but I promise when I get the chance I’ll come home” You hear Tom of the other line.
“Okay, I love you baby”.
“Love you more, alright there calling me to set I got to go love”.
“Bye Y/N” You hung up and leaned against the counter top.
Tom’s been away to film Spiderman Homecoming so he hasn’t been around much, and that drove you crazy. The apartment was getting lonely just with you in it. He suggested that you go with him, but you couldn’t leave in the middle of your semester, he understood that school was your priority so he didn’t push it any further. If only you could see him.
You bought the cheapest plane ticket you could afford and packed a suitcase. You were going to fly to Atlanta, Georgia to surprise Tom. If Tom knew you were coming he would of paid for everything and you didn’t need the special treatment. He had too much on his plate as it is. The flight was okay but it wasn’t fantastic. A kid sitting in the back of you kept kicking you chair, his mother being too busy sleeping her ass off. You didn’t care though, you were going to get to see Tom and that’s all that mattered.
Once you landed you picked up your luggage, hailed a cab, and told them to take you to where the set was taking place. You barely had enough to pay.
It took a bit of convincing for the security guards to let you in, but once you explained who you were they let you right in. You walked around trying not to get caught by Tom and ruin the surprise. Tom was nowhere to be seen, but you did notice that Harrison, and Zendaya were playing basketball while Laura was sitting on a chair on her phone. Although she was the one to notice you first.
Lotor saying the galra should inspire loyalty and devotion is far more dangerous. At least is what I think. Fear could inspire revolution and a need to change, but devotion... It makes you think everything is okay.
Dude. Dude, I’m scared of Lotor. I can already tell that he’s gonna be an awesome character - 10 times more of a threat than his father was for sure :P From what we’ve seen, Lotor is charismatic and loyalty inspiring. He has a knack for words, is a skilled fighter and only considers people’s skills and abilities when it comes to distributing tasks. He’s cunning and charming and convincing and a born leader. I am sosososo scared of him…
With Zarkon it’s always been just about strength. We were scared of him because he was the previous black paladin and because he had enough power to stand up against a fully formed Voltron on his own. I was more scared of Haggar than him because she had magic and because she has proven that she can manipulate the minds of people with it.
Now there’s Lotor though. Lotor who doesn’t need magic to manipulate people. All he needs is his conviction and his words.
And the worst part?? As scared as I am of him, I think I might actually grow to like him. And that’s coming from me, a person that generally dislikes all the evil guys on principle. But like… he doesn’t look down on halfbreeds and doesn’t care for gender. He was gone for the entirety of the first two seasons but when Haggar called him for help he was readily available. Whether it was because he saw an opportunity to become more powerful/the new emperor or whether he saw a chance to change the Galra empire for the better (in terms of prejudice and unity amongst the people) is still unclear.
So fuck. Fuck. We haven’t been officially introduced to him yet but I can tell that he’s seriously gonna be an amazing character who’s gonna show us that the world exists in shades of gray instead of black and white.
