ok just hear me out on this but a langst prompt where the team tells him to shut up and be quiet so much that he slowly starts talking less until he only speaks when spoken to. no one notices & later they fight against haggar and she (probably magically) puts a clear wall between the team, splitting up her and lance from them & she magically sews his mouth shut while the others watch, and when lance goes into distress she just says "this is what they wanted" and he stops and nods while crying
In what universe would they ever tell him that on a enough basis to where it would make him actually do that? In what universe would they not notice it and get him to talk about it? In what universe would they actually do that? Because its not the universe that they’re in currently.
Listen, I like the prompt. Its a good prompt! However, I just don’t think that they would ever do that too the point where he feels like that. A simple way to fix this is have Lance take the two or three times they’ve said that and have him obsess on it. Have him think that they think that he needs to be quiet. But also have them try to help him as he spirals down into a major depressive episode.
I’m sorry if my answer of this ask seems rude, I’ve just been seeing an ongoing trend of making the team villains and totally re writing their character for the sake of langst. And I don’t think that’s fair at all you know? And I find when the other characters are out of character, so is Lance! No longer is Lance witty, playful, sassy, he’s been deduced down to a few character traits and I just don’t think that’s really fair.
Im sorry for being rude, anon. I hope you can forgive me.
