So a friend of mine in instagram and I were having this conversation of how the vAs are so precious and a gift to us fans so here’s a little tribute for them. Keep up the great work and we will always support and love you guys~ 😘
hunk with crohns disease is very important to me especially bc he goes to the GARRISON, a chronically ill disabled boy whos top of his class in the most prestigious military academy in the country, but that means hes a Typical IBD Overachiever Student
- hunk dreading every guidance office appointment bc he knows he’s gonna get told the same half-assed crap about Taking It Easy and Not Pushing Himself and He Doesn’t Have To Stay Here If It’s Too Hard For Him
- hunk’s teachers always thinking he’s a moron for like the first half of the year bc he misses classes a lot, despite consistently being the very top of his grade
- hunk making stupid bathroom humor jokes because every time someone else does around him he feels like a freakshow
- hunk brushing off crohns as Upset Stomach to other students bc he doesn’t feel like explaining why he’s allowed to go to the restroom w/o asking but no one else is
- other students giving him backhanded compliments abt his grades bc they think he’s either cheating or getting spoiled by the teachers
- teachers hunk doesn’t know stopping him in the halls by the restrooms or chewing him out for taking pills in the cafeteria bc they don’t know who he is and don’t have his accomodation papers
- teachers hunk DOES know giving him lectures about how he Shouldn’t Expect Special Treatment bc he has “”“tummy problems”“” and how he won’t Get Away With passing their classes like he mustve done last semester (he still scores in the top percentages)
- hunk on the verge of an anxiety attack every time he doesn’t have an assignment in on time cuz he passed out in his dorm immediately after class dismissal
- hunk constantly afraid of getting kicked out despite being one of the garrison’s most accomplished students, and way overworking himself bc of it
- lance taking care of hunk when he’s sick in their dorm bc hunk’s nervous and doesn’t want to bother the nurse
- lance asking hunk how he can help so hunk teaches lance how to make ibd-flare friendly meals, and lance loves it bc he cares abt hunk AND they’re hella useful when ablebodied people get sick too
- lance distracting the class w some Witty Banter so hunk can leave and use the bathroom w/o being disruptive
- hunk and pidge first bonding bc pidge has a really weak immune system and finally, FINALLY, someone understands why hunk is so picky abt sharing food
- pidge puts random short-term medical problems in her student file so she can keep hunk company in the bleachers when he has to sit out of phys ed
- lance and pidge fistfighting anyone who gossips abt hunk
- including teachers
- and the guidance counselor, who pidge spent like 10min straight yelling at
- lance and pidge being good friends and taking care of hunk when hes flaring. thats all. thanks
Highlights of the Voltron Wondercon panel:
•Jeremy Shada screaming “Let me have this Lance is Altean!” when Tom Hendrick tried to point out a flaw in a fans logic
•Tom Hendrick saying lances skin care consists of food goo and fermented food goo.
•"Lance is as beautiful as he thinks he is"
•There was legit irl hunk who actually majored engineering and minored in culinary arts and offered Tyler Labine a cinnamon role.
•Finding out in the original story idea in space mall Shiro was supposed to be looking for a parking spot the entire episode
•Lance was supposed to park in a handicap spot
•Also Shiro and Allura were supposed to bathe the mice together
•Lotor’s beautiful voice
For the record this isn’t the first time Tyler has said this. In his Let’s Voltron interview a while back he said the same thing, that he has the same concerns as us re: fat jokes and such, and he will “never just let [Hunk] fall flat”
That one interview video where Tyler Labine and Bex Taylor-Klaus spent the entire first minute and a half talking about food pretty much sums up out how I would interpret Hunk and Pidge having a conversation to pass time tbh
Reblog this if you care about the Voltron creators and people behind the screens more than ships.
Reblog this if you care about the Voltron creators, VA’s, artists, etc. more than you do any stupid fictional ship in the show no matter what it is. I know there are lots of good people in this fandom so let’s, let the good out shine the bad.
Oh. My. God. alsfjsdf I JUST noticed Josh’s new twitter header how did I not notice before
CAN SOMEONE PLEASE REDRAW THIS WITH THE VOLTRON CHARACTERS PLEASE I’LL GIVE YOU MY FIRSTBORN ((and if it’s already been redrawn can someone send it to me))
Jeremy and Kimberly look like they’re not exactly sure how to do it. Bex looks like she’s doing a lazy dab (note the bent left arm). Josh has fucking PERFECT form. Tim is pretty good too. Tyler also, tho he kinda looks more like he’s trying to hide his face than dab
