I make jokes but can you imagine?
The eternal, terrifying question of whether or not he’s measuring up? If he would be making Shiro proud? If they’re failing at saving the universe because it’s HIM in charge of Voltron and not Shiro? How cruel it is that the universe was robbed of the best man for the job?
Every “that’s not what Shiro would do” cutting to the core, every decision prefaced with "what would Shiro do" pounding in his head?
