(1) I love you. I love that you are willing to stand up for Allura in a fandom that is so far up Keith's ass they can't realize that their favourite character can react to something in the wrong way. Keith may be a paladin, but that doesn't make him a god. Good characters are flawed, good characters have conflicts. And good conflicts are not always resolved in one episode. I believe this conflict has the potential to be a really good bonding exercise, and a good way to see how the characters
(2) characters handle a conflict within their ranks. The writers have made some questionable decisions that I do not agree with, (namely ignoring more than half of their cast in terms of character development) but those can be fixed. However, what doesn’t seem to be fixable is the fandom’s complete adoration for Keith and disdain for Allura. Everyone wants to jump on the “Allura’s wrong!!!” Boat, but no one wants to fly the “Keith could have dealt with this better” flag. Allura is not the only
(3) one at fault here, and the fandom needs to see that. This is a group of teenagers that have been cut off from everything they know, everyone they love, and they are TEENAGERS. They won’t all agree on one subject because they are a group with diverse experiences. Allura watched the Galra destroy cultures and everything she knew, but she woke up and it was worse than remembered. There was more genocide and slavery than before. The one Galra she had actually trusted turned on the royal family
(4) in the most drastic way. By destroying everything they knew and their allies, so that they could never take refuge. This scarred her emotionally. You don’t watch this kind of shit and come out without any scars. He may not have done it personally, but you can’t tell me that she shouldn’t have any reservations because he didn’t head up the attack himself. Shiro isn’t holding this against Keith because he knows he needs to be mature about this, and newsflash, he knew Keith before all of this
(5) Which is something I would love them to explore, but not at the expense of not devolving the other half of their cast. Pidge is still looking for her family, but she knows Keith isn’t responsible, so she doesn’t blame him for it. Hunk understands how people’s emotions can get the better of them, so he is letting Keith vent and get what needs to be said off of his mind. Lance knew Keith from the Garrison— kind of, at least. The rivalry is probably one sided. They were never close, but
(6) but he is taking this as a way to fuel his lack of self worth. Which, once again I hope they develop. However, they probably won’t. Everyone is so caught up in shipping and ages that they can’t see the writers trying so hard to make Keith ~special~ that he is one of the only characters getting development.
