- Lance can box. Used to practice with his uncles all the time. Almost became a pro boxer but decided he wanted to go to Space instead.
- excelled in gymnastics but he didn’t want his family to think less of him. His brothers and cousins were all mechanics, baseball players and barbers. Amd his dad supported him but he let Lance know how worried he was about them treating him different. So he kept it private until he performed his aerial dance for the bi bo bis.
- is multilingual. Yeah there are still a few issues but he picks languages up fast. He just second guesses himself a lot. His first languages were Spanish and Gaelic but he eventually learned English, Russian, Japanese and Korean. He likes to pretend he doesn’t know what Shiro and Keith talk about until Keoth insults him and Lance responds back. His accent is thick but Keith’s expression is priceless.
“You know, keith, at least when I insult you I do it in a language I know you understand.”
He starts learning Altean from Coran and when Lotor arrives on board, Lance offers him kindness and even ropes him into teaching him Galran.
He’s not worried about being perfect at it but he needs to be able to defend himself at least
*sofia vergara voice* DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA HOW SMART I AM IN SPANISH???!!!
-hes not the best with swords but somehow he’s able to wield a machete. Keith is…so confused. When he asks Lance to make his bayard into a blade, thats the form it takes.
“Huh, would you look at that? Looks like all that time hacking at sugar cane in abuelo’s fields paid off.”
And it did. He has a mean swing. And he’s fast and adaptable. It’s just his strength they need to build up or he needs to evade heavy blows And he needs to stop thinking so damn much.
- Lance is naturally good at measuring. He just needs people to trust him. His voltron kicks would work otherwise. He used to play pool a lot and uses the same techniques for shooting. It makes him wonder. He remembers watching Wanted as a kid. Can you really curve a bullet?
He decides to test it out on the training deck.
Yes. Yes he can.
Pidge doesn’t know how he does it. According to her calculations it shouldn’t be possible.
She doesn’t call him sharpshooter until she sees it with her own eyes.
-lance didn’t always have guns. He learned how to shoot when he was young. People tried to fuck with his grandpa’s farm all the time. So they were always ready for worse to come to worst if they had to defend their land. Sometimes all they had were bows and arrows they made since there were only five guns and 8 men.
He’s kidnapped once in his pajamas. No suit. No bayard. He’s alone on this planet of slaves. He causes an uprising, helps the rebels make weapons at least to help them until they can steal the blasters off the sentries and team voltron arrives to arrows flying. At the center is Lance who’s about as accurate as Hawkeye.
“Woah,” Hunk says.
-Shiro almost has a heart attack when Lance disappears underwater and doesn’t come back up. He tries to get to him and almost drowns himself because his metal arm throws him off. Turns out Shiro can’t swim withoit significant difficulty now. Lance pulls him out.
“What the fuck were you thinking?”
“You were drowning!”
“Shiro, I can hold my breath for ten minutes on a bad day! 15 on a good day. I’m basically a fish.”
He can also dive fairly deep on his own. He gas to come back up before the water pressure gets to him, though.
I am a little depressed cuz of my friend :/He has almost asphyxiated with carbon monoxide(fault of fireplace). Two minutes more and he would die. If his sister wouldn't come back from a walk he would die. Worst of all is that doctors found out that his heart is faulty :/. Probably cuz of this fucking carbon monoxide. So he might leave our school and end his sport carrier immediately. We would loose friend and a good player. Hug me plis...
Oh my god Seal… I’m so sorry about your friend…
That is truly awful. I hope the doctors can at least help him with his recovery. It’s so sad if he’s unable to pursue his career in sports. Poor thing… send him all of my love and best wishes to him.
Thor has had the
worst track when it comes to the MCU. His first outing was an
okay-at-best adventure that took place with a cast of boring, unfunny
humans instead of on Asgard where cool shit happened. When you start
out your trilogy with someone like Kenneth Branagh directing and even
he can’t make it cool, you know you’re in trouble. Then we come
to his appearance in The Avengers, where
he does decent but still gets outshone quite a bit by the rest of the
cast. Then we get to Thor: The Dark World, one
of the worst superhero films ever made… the less said about it the
better. Then comes Age of Ultron and
Thor’s overall role is negligible, especially with his weird cave
dream sequence which doesn’t amount to too much. All of this
build’s Thor up as one of the least-interesting Avengers, which is
a damn shame, because Chris
Hemsworth plays the role with such charm and enthusiasm, it’s sad
to see his efforts go to waste…
then comes Thor: Ragnarok, and
it blows all that bullshit out of the water by doing a soft reboot to
the whole Thor series. Sure, the bullshit before is still canon, but
Thor got dumped by his human girlfriend so we don’t need to put up
with those fucks anymore, the movie takes place mostly in the cosmos
which were the best parts of the other Thor movies, and best of all
we have a director who knows what we want to see and gives it to us
with cheesy 80s and Jack Kirby aesthetic: Taika
Waititi. More than anyone before him, he seems to really GET what
makes Thor so cool in the first place, and what makes comic book
movies cool in general. The
other Thor movies are naught but a whimper to this film’s epic Led
Zeppelin metal scream. But how? How did this film fix the fatal flaws
of the films that came before?
let’s give you a rundown of the story: It has been two years since
Thor has left Earth. His girlfriend has dumped him, he has found no
Infinity Stones, and as soon as he returns to Asgard he finds out
Loki has hijacked the throne and hid his father, Odin, on Earth. And
just when things don’t seem like they could get any worse, Odin
dies and releases the wicked Hela, his firstborn child who was
banished long ago for being an evil bitch. She makes it to Asgard and
starts trying to dominate everything, while Thor and Loki end up on
the planet of Sakaar… though Thor is stuck fighting in gladiator
battles while Loki, who through temporal bullshit showed up a week
earlier, has sucked up to the grandiose ruler known as the
Grandmaster and landed himself in a cushy position. Soon enough Thor
is up in the gladiator arena against his old pal, the Hulk, and from
here Thor tries to figure out how he can get back to Asgard and whoop
Hela’s ass. Can the mighty Thor manage this impossible feat, or is
Ragnarok finally upon him?
ok here’s a concept: kara is a contestant on a show like american ninja warrior or ultimate beastmaster and lena is a celebrity host who’s wayyyyy too gay for this and spends 82% of her air time stuttering over kara’s muscles instead of commenting on the actual competition.
Oh Lord Jesus, Thor and whatever God(s) willing to listen. My Hillary Clinton post is circulating again. Run. Save yourselves from the neo-nazis and the “I’m a feminist but” internalizers. I’ll try to hold them off.
