    Hully gee, I'm not the only one who thought original flavor Pidge was a girl! (I do not remember headcanoning Keith as anything in particular as I would not have had most of the concepts in question.)

    Xitaqa Secretly awesome

    Yeah I didn't really have the vocabulary, but as a kid I often decided that certain favorite characters were "really" girls or else were dubiously gendered in a way that today I would call nonbinary.

    I have heard/seen some clips of Original Flavor Voltron. WHY are the voices so irritating? WHY? I don't remember them being that obnoxious. (Also the clips I've seen inspire embarrassment squick.)

    Since Zarkon looks to be a different species (though still purple) than the fuzzy Galrans we've seen, I've been kind of headcanoning that the Galran planet evolved with *two* sentient species. (Maybe a planet like Cyteen, where you had two completely different biomes/ecosystems for each major landmass or whatever, but each one had Obnoxious Environment Destroying Megafauna, though in the case of Galra, Two Species of Space Orcs for the Price of One.)

    i just finally finished watching the entire series and i was immediately like RIGHT WHERE'S THE KINTSUGI VOLTRON THREAD I KNOW YOU HAVE ONE

    diet coke RIGHT up my nose

    can i use this tag too it's such a good tag

    how many fucking THOUSANDS of galra did they just straight up fucking massacre? this is not a complaint. when you have something people keep calling 'the universe's greatest weapon' and you send it up against a fleet of battleships, there should be a death toll. otherwise you're just clacking plastic toys together. but i didn't expect the show to actually get away with it! :U

    ok ok so i still refuse to ship klance but
    pidge is clearly nonbinary (i am absolutely on board here)
    Polydins: hellya

    ....I also have a weird combination of needs for fics that go super into shiro's pain and torture but also for fics where everyone takes really super great care of shiro
    i don't know he reminds me of bucky and i love it a whole bunch
    he's like if bucky started out capt america and then got turned into the winter soldier

    also allura is like wow i was kind of worried that she would be stereotypical anime girl mcshriekyvoice, but then
    she started throwing people thru doors
    and like whaaa

    also yes agree with galra!keith theory. hm. weirdly enough, i think if that was a thing i would start shipping klance. whellp *shrugs a xeno shrug*
    which reminds me, those rock people can gettit

    Shiro needs to join the One Armed Angst Muffin Club, Right Now.

    I adore Allura.
    "Wait, I can't let you be captured again! *tosses* "Yes, I have done A Good." *beatific smile* Shiro: *dying inside*

    I want Shiro/Allura that addresses the spoiler. Gimme.

    I am liking galra!Keith. I am not liking a/b/o as much, but the weird Captive Prince-a/b/o fic needs to update. (The writer needs to learn how to sneaky though. They do not know how to sneaky/write sneaky, and galra!Keith is supposed to be Laurent, so. Poor Shiro is Damen, and it's also a mix of original flavor Voltron and all of the remakes.)

    I want to deconstruct most of the pr0n and reformat it.

    I did not expect to like Klance as much as I do, because as I've mentioned, I want to punch Lance in the face.

    I just finished the series too! Coincidence?

    Looking through a lot of fandom shit halfway through watching prepared me for just about everything (I got a lot of spoilers because I wasn't at all careful about my filter, heck, I started writing pwp fic six episodes in because who gives a damn not me) but two things were not mentioned anywhere in my completely uncensored spoiler content which, why, the fuck did I not know about

    Shiro motherfucking shooting a person (used in the 'sentient being' sense) into space because he turned around the interrogation on him and nope, eternal cold void of space for you. What the FUCK and then like they DON'T MENTION IT AGAIN WHAT THE FUCK SHIRO JUST PANICKED AND SHOT SOMEONE INTO SPACE AND LIKE OKAY

    or

    Princess motherfucking Allura detaching a steel door from its hinge, launching it and herself against a giant brawny space alien, knocking him out against the far wall with it, and then stealing his gun which, by the way, she can't even use, but why not. I had no idea I could even expect this happening in the show because I guess we're not mentioning that!

    I guess there are so many wild fucking moments you can't expound on all of them in detail but jesus goddamn
    SHIRO LAUNCHED SOMEONE INTO SPACE WHEN SHIT GOT REAL I WOULD NEVER LET SHIT GET REAL AROUND THIS MAN AGAIN IF I WERE ANY OF YOU

    Characters I am in love with: the aforementioned Shiro and Princess Allura.

    Allura is such a fucking beast you guys. A little something got in my eye during That One Scene with her. A something called tears.

    i like that shiro's reaction to panicky headfuck is an efficient and decisive murderizing, and i like that the show doesn't pretend they're not using lethal force. dude might not be dead despite the cracked pod cover, we saw emperor turtleface out in vacuum without a suit so apparently they can survive that? but considering the vastness of space, his chances of a) micrometeorite impact, b) eternal drifting in unbroken stasis, or c) starving/dehydrating to death due to being awake enough for psychic shenanigans and therefore awake enough to have a metabolism, are infinitely greater than rescue. and you can bet shiro is well aware of that.

    I feel like, since this is the sort of deliciously fun-having cartoon that loves having people come back from certain death to fight/ haunt Shiro's delicate mental balance another day, whether they should survive the odds or not, we'll probably see Sendak again. At least I hope so, he's some good devious manipulation.

    Me, gunning for more Shiro whump? What accusation.

    That said, you are right, that was straight up murder. That was the 'fuck you' button. The 'three strikes you're out' button. And re: that being Shiro's instinctive reaction, I also noticed especially in the last episode that he doesn't... he's not even thinking about pulling punches. He's in there to murder and he's not thinking about it at all dude. It seems to be some sort of uncomfortable combination of combat training and desperation, maybe even the fear that combat training put into him. Good shit. I was thinking about it like... Voltron paladins are about 3/5 'shoot first, ask later' rather than 'ask first, shoot later' and the people I'm not including are Hunk and Lance. And I'm being GRACIOUS when it comes to Lance, because I feel both he and Pidge could go either way depending on situation. Such kid's show, I love TV these days.

    Different topic which I must mention, I love the fact that each of the paladins are developing fighting styles when it comes to fighting inside their lions. While Pidge goes for a lot of duck and weave, Lance goes for a lot of holding out and positioning for the best shot, and Keith gets out a knife and starts shanking, Hunk runs the fuck into things. Takes his lion, ducks his head down, and runs the fuck into whatever he wants to take down. And it works every time. If he can't knock it down with a body slam, he decides it's too strong to take down. 10/10.

    I am just ridiculously delighted that Hunk's bayard is a BFG9000. IT'S PERFECT.
