waking world

you: coran is the funny uncle comic relief

me, a person with too much time: how long did coran wait to cryofreeze himself? did he do it right after allura fainted? in that case, was alfor the one who cryofroze him? was alfor the last thing coran ever saw?

you: uh,

me, on a roll: or did coran wait? did he see his king off to a fight they both knew alfor could not possibly win? and even then, how long did coran hesitate? how long did he hope? how many minutes, hours, days did he spend gazing out at the stars, waiting for a call that would never come? and only then did he, completely alone in a castle built for thousands, finally freeze himself?

you: 

me, rapidly blinking: did you notice how solemn coran’s face was in the split-second after he woke up from cryo-freeze? is it because he knew he would be waking up in a world post-altea, post-voltron, post-alfor?

Another world is not only possible, she is on her way. On a quiet day, I can hear her breathing.
