Ok so i don’t Know if Klance will be canon, but I’m going need to get this out of my system regardless, because their characters are so crucial to one another. So buckle tf up i guess. (Warning: hella long)
Lance and Keith both need to mature a little. Not to completely change their personalities, but maybe so that like… Keith stops getting his ass handed to him in one (1) man showdowns against intergalactic dictators, and Lance stops picking fights with teammates and gains some true self confidence.
The thing is that Keith and Lance can prompt each other to grow. They’re such obvious character foils. There’s the glaringly obvious binary opposites of red and blue, fire and ice, but it goes beyond colour/element symbolism. Right down to their characterizations they clash; hot headedness vs staying (somewhat) cool under pressure, mr perfect vs raging insecurity, shack-hermit vs social butterfly. Same with their backstories: orphan vs large family, desert vs sea town… I’ll try not to go on and on lol, because i definitely could
They quite literally butt heads, but they learn through their differences. Keith (unknowingly) motivated Lance to work his hardest in the Garrison, and, as like pretty much everyone has pointed out, Lance calls Keith out on his rash decisions. And of course, there’s the ever-iconic “we make a good team” to sum it all up.
I’m just so excited to see them bettered by their differences. Especially now that Shiro’s gone, Keith’s going to be so alone and have so much responsibility to shoulder, and Lance is gonna have to confront his feelings of inferiority with Keith in the official leadership position. I hope they always tease and bicker because i love that shit, but i want to see them trust and admire one another more openly. To rely on and support each other - not just in monologues to Yuppers or on the brink of death.
It’s just such a great writing opportunity for character development, and could fit so perfectly into show’s narrative of maturing to shoulder this immense burden of protecting the universe, of becoming not just a team but a family. And just….fuck like it could be so good… we could have it all….. come on
I want you to know something no matter what happens no one will be able to take your place, no one will ever be able to steal me away from you. There is only one you and I only have room in my heart for one special person and that person is you and it always has been.
I’m sorry because I gave you everything that I have. I’m sorry because I cared about you. I’m sorry because I was always there for you. I’m sorry because you were always my first priority. I’m sorry because I cry over you. I’m sorry because I loved the way you smile. I’m sorry because I fell in love with your eyes. I’m sorry because I made you my everything.
