the bayard is the paladin is the lion: a season 3 prediction

The lovely @littleblackchats already wrote an awesome post about the symbolism of the bayards for each of the characters in Voltron. But I was wondering: could we take it a step further and use the weapons - and what they say symbolically about the paladins wielding them - to make an informed guess about who’s going to end up in what lion next season?
(even if the answer to that question is no, i’m already writing this so whatever)
Since Allura, Keith, and Lance are the most likely to be swapped into new lions (or, in Allura’s case, to be put into a lion for the first time), I thought it’d be cool to take a look at what the weapons each of them wields says about their personalities, and whether that can give us hints as to who’s gonna be the Black Paladin next season while Shiro’s gone.
Alright, so in episode 1, Allura tells us that a lion’s quintessence is mirrored in its paladin, and that the paladin shapes the bayard. So lion = paladin = bayard. The lion and paladin should be similar in personalty, and the bayard should be compatible to the paladin’s style of fighting and personality as well. This is shown really well in Hunk and Pidge: Pidge’s weapon is small (like her), electric (reflecting her interest in computers), and made for precision (Pidge is more interested in finding clever solutions than just brute-forcing problems), while Hunk’s is big (just like him), long-range (reflecting his wish to stay distanced from conflict), and packs a punch (Hunk is the strongest character on the team, after all).
So the weapons tell us something about the personality of the ones using them. But what can their respective weapons tell us about Keith, Lance, and Allura?
Behold the woman who surpassed the Ultimate Eye. Behold the woman who slapped Wrath upon their first meeting.
Either Mrs. Bradley has some latent super powers OR a young Bradley allowed a puny human he had only just met slap him. Both scenarios are too awesome to imagine.
Anyway! How would FMA have ended if instead of hiding Mrs Bradley, they unleashed her and were like: HEY WE FOUND YOUR HUSBAND LET US TAKE U TO HIM!! And Mrs. Bradley proceeds to lay the smackdown on Wrath (and Pride) and demand they explain themselves this instant!

Summary: Isak just wants to get his coffee in peace, Even has a crush, and there’s a secret admirer on the loose. (Huge thank-you to @stardefiant and @koninginnen for reading over this and making my writing coherent!)
At this point, Isak’s pretty sure that his locker has become sentient enough to figure out how to fuck with him at the worst times. All he has the energy for is to grab his Bio textbook in time to catch the tram. He already has plans to veg out in front of his laptop with a bag of sour cream and onion chips, goddammit, he doesn’t care how much Eskild complains about his breath stinking up the whole place. He deserves it after the shitty day he’s had, because there’s no way a test on motion could’ve been that hard. Isak sometimes moves from his bed. He knows how it works.
just a little reminder that the upcoming venus rx can affect more than just romantic relationships. any sort of relationship that you can form (especially if love or a lack of it is involved in some capacity) could easily come under question whether it be a friendship or your relationship with your siblings/family members. Ask yourself just how much that person or connection matters to you and how important it is to hold on to or to let go of.
i’m sorry but more people need to talk about nct 127 and the fact that they did THAT with this last album they put out. like i’m sick and tired of hearing about “but nct u had one of the best debuts” look my guy no one is taking that away from them but the 7th sense can’t compete with the audio masterpiece that is the limitless album.
Considering the pillars (and I have no clue if I'm right or not, physics is not my forté) if both of them were broken and cracked as they were but left undisturbed they might actually be able to still stand because the rough stone pieces might not slip past the other pieces (something to do with static and/or kinetic friction), especially if there was a giant weight on top pressing all the broken pieces firmly together....
