Voltron actor AU where everything’s the same but Voltron is a live-action TV show and the paladins are actors:
Their names are the same in real life. They go by different names in the show.
Keith and Lance still have a “rivalry.” Red and Blue didn’t originally have it, but when the cast first met and the directors saw how Keith and Lance interacted, they wanted to write it in.
Shiro’s arm is still a prosthetic, although the scar is fake.
sometimes the makeup crew forgets the scar. literally no one notices until it’s the end of filming
“Shiro…” “Huh?” “…they forgot the sca–” “are yOU FUC–”
Shiro, Keith, Lance, Hunk, and Allura all do their own stunts.
Pidge is only 17 and their mom won’t sign the waiver for them to do their own stunts.
No one really knows how their little production company was able to afford hiring Allura, who’s a big time actress and super talented.
they eventually find out that she’s a giant mecha/space nerd and came to /them/ asking for a role and willing to do it for free
No one really knows if Coran has a script or if he was told to just say whatever
Lance calls Keith “Red” so often that Keith thinks Lance has forgotten his name
The paladins, Allura, Coran, and basically all the actors boycott after season 2, demanding retribution for the way they wrote Hunk and Lance’s characters.
Hunk has an engineering degree in real life.
Matt isn’t Pidge’s real life brother, but when they first meet it goes something like: “baby sister!” “big brother!” and they end up inseparable.
Pidge’s mother is known for calling Pidge at work just to talk to her son, Matt
Hunk and Shay’s on-screen chemistry was actually a real thing. Shay was cast at the same time that she was working in the costume/design department, so they’d known each other since the show started.
they’re dating now
Every time Lance’s character hits on Allura’s on-screen Lance spends five minutes defending Blue’s character after filming
“he just craves attention, okay? he just wants love!! he’s smart and beautiful and wants to belonG”
despite this, Lance is basically his character minus that shoddy writing in season 2
Keith and Lance have their own shipping fanbase. It starts out with just their characters, but then Some Mysterious Person starts taking candids between sets and posting them online and klance is born
it’s Pidge. Pidge runs five fan accounts.
the pictures are super incriminating, but no one shows them to Lance or Keith
there’s a betting pool on when they’ll get together
Keith gets super into his roles and ends up genuinely upset after filming the scenes where the princess reacts badly to Red being part Galra.
Allura gives him a 15 minute hug after
Bonding Moment Discourse is actually a thing. There was a prop malfunction on set while they were filming and the directors told them to stay put, so Lance ended up being Cradled for a solid half hour.
later, they find out that they could’ve moved and just chilled for that time, instead of actually holding each other.
“I get it Keith, I get it. You just wanted to hold me. Who doesn’t amiright??”
listen you have no idea how important having a bilingual peter in the mcu is because in queens, hispanics are the majority of the minority. i see peter using spanish in the suit when he needs to help someone who doesn’t speak english. like they can utilize that so well into the next few films. man it was such a little thing that made me so happy to see. to be in a theater filled with hispanics and us all laughing out of joy and saying “Ooooo” to that first line peter speaks in spanish in the movie, like yes. i need more of that bond when watching a movie like spider-man on the big screen.
We’re both in our thirties now, so we’ve been through some shit–like those dark chasms in life. And we know that you guys go through that and it means the world to us that we help you. And, honestly, you help us get through it all. It means so much to us that you support us by watching and being here. If any of you are going through those times right now, just fuckin hang in there, all right? There IS happiness waiting for you. And take care of yourself.

A while ago I realized, you can, and should, do things to make yourself happy. There are no guarantees; there are many, many things that you simply cannot control. But it is your responsibility to put in effort. So, I tried. I began to wear nice and elegant outfits to rather dull places, like school or on a walk around the neighborhood, to make it feel like I was doing something nice and elegant. I would take photos of the most boring objects and places, using lighting and angles to manipulate them into something as beautiful as I envisioned in my head. I looked in the mirror, and instead of picking at the flaws that screamed at me, I would search for the things that made me happy about who I was. It was occasionally like searching for a four leaf clover, but working for it was what helped. No, it didn’t always work. Yet the fact that I was trying made me feel as if when I was angry, or sad, or overwhelmed, it was okay because I knew I was capable of happiness, and I was working to be happy. You cannot go through life saying your situation is void of silver linings, not if you refuse to look for them.
maybe i’ll write a book with this in it someday, CI carolineingle
