Autistic Simon Spier
This is an autistic Simon Spier headcanon as per requested by a lovely anon
- He’s one of those autistics who have short bursts of intense special interests that last for like a couple of weeks before he moves onto something else.
- His friends are slightly amazed because of how much information he can gather about each special interest in such a short amount of time.
- His main special interest is Harry Potter partly for nostalgic reasons. (also, our boy is a Hufflepuff and I feel #blessed)
- Pressure stims all the way!! and he rocks A LOT. He gets overwhelmed easily and so he is generally always slightly rocking or always has his arms pressed close to his sides or crossed to help keep calm.
- He has the best stim toy collection, just littered around the house. A box of tangles in the living room, some cute little fidget rings in the kitchen, squishes in the bathroom. They’re everywhere. Also, he always has at least like 5 stim toys on him.
- His comfort items are his hoodies (which is pretty much canon). Our boy is a Disaster Hoodie Gay™. It’s a canon fact.
- He has the best array of slimes in his bedroom, this boy has crunchy slime, foam, butter slime you name it he has it. Although as previously stated, Disaster Gay™. Are they neatly stacked? No.
- Everyone is super accepting and cuts him slack when he’s stressed and is close to a meltdown or just in general when he doesn’t understand a social queue. They’re always there for him.
- He also needs a script for just about everything. If they go to a new restaurant he must watch his friends order first before he knows/feels comfortable with what he wants to order.
- Also, did I hear someone say executive dysfunction?? This guy is so bad at remembering stuff it’s hilarious. His walls are littered with post-it notes so that he remembers to “do that thing” (his friends are super sweet about it and gift him sticky notes in his favourite colours).
Aaaand that’s it for my Autistic Simon Spier Headcanons. If you guys want any other autistic headcanons or just headcanons in general just send an ask and I’ll get around to it. Feel free to specify if you want a long headcanon or a short one or just any specifics you want me to cover in it. Hope you enjoy!
