Okay but if Jem Carstairs can be a good and kind person after being tortured nearly to death and being fatally ill for years after because of that, and hearing his parents scream for him whilst they were being tortured to death and then living in a place with a girl who hated them all, and a boy who tried to get everyone to hate him, then a girl who he is in love with, having the knowledge that he’d die before his time and never be able to live the entirety of his life with her, all whilst helping defeat the antagonists and never, ever complaining, then anyone can be a good and kind person too.
im literally gagging myself rn im imagining concept art mercy (imma call him angelo for the sake of ease) doing a voice over where he talks abt how gabriel reyes ended the war that killed his parents and finally allowed peace and how gabriel was his hero that he eventually became somewhat disallusioned with bc of gabes work in blackwatch, but still admired and looked up to, maybe even viewed as a paternal figure in a distant, orphan sort of way… and how after the swiss hq explosion angelo knew he shouldn’t have done it but tht childish hero worship still lingered within him and he just couldnt let go…… so he brings gabriel back to life and he regrets it but still thinks he’d do it over again. and it ends w his voice, sweet and echoing a little ominously saying, heroes never die….
Ever since the Shiro/Keith clip came out I’ve been seeing more and more posts about how “the real Shiro would never treat or talk to Keith like that!!” and I Am Tired Of It.
Did y’all suddenly forget how Shiro reached out to comfort Keith and told him he was proud of him in S3E6?
Did y’all suddenly forget that Keith himself has closed off to Shiro before?
Did y’all suddenly forget that Shiro has, in fact, acted like this before? You know, closing off and changing the subject when he thinks Keith is being stubborn?
It’s like y’all forget how Shiro said he supported Keith’s decision to train with the BOM (I would have been worried if he had outright refused to let Keith do it), just not at the expense of the team. You know, the team Shiro is not the leader of right now? Clone or not, Shiro has legitimate reasons to be upset in that scene. He was captured by the galra again, came back to a team that was functioning well without him, lost his lion and is trying to adapt to all of this. Josh said it a few times on saturday: Shiro believes in Keith and wants this for him. He’d go back to being the black paladin/leader in a heartbeart if he could but he can’t and he’s willing to accept that. But Keith isn’t, because he loves Shiro and knows how much his former position meant to him and it probably feels like he’s undeservingly taking that away from him. It’s kind of frustrating because basically they appreciate and believe in each other so much they both want the other to have this.
Operation Kuron is shady af and yes, he could be a clone for all we know. But the thing is, y’all talk about how much you wanna see Keith and Shiro’s relationship struggle, but as soon as Shiro starts acting like he might not be okay with how things are going he must definitely be a clone? Right.
