*slides 10¢ and a stick of gum to you* Shance/ Langst headcanons? (Happy ending preferable but not needed) ( ◠‿◠ )
*pops gum into mouth and pockets the change* lol sure my dude!!!!
-Lance is homesick, we know this, but he often pushes that aside in favor of making the others feel less shitty about leaving Earth. He comforts Hunk and Pidge with shitty memes and jokes and helps out by cooking food or helping Pidge with leads on her family, sometimes talks to Keith about what life was like in the desert, catches Shiro up on all the latest news since he’d been gone, little things really. But nobody ever asks Lance how he’s taking it, how HE feels about leaving Earth. He suffers in silence.
-Blue is probably the only one he tells about his fears and homesickness, since she’s always a good source of comfort and reminds him of home. Since she was on Earth for 10,000 years, she has images and videos of all kinds downloaded from the internet. It’s basically an astral plane type of thing, and Lance will sit and watch the videos of some old Vines and jokes on the good days, but when the homesickness hits him hard enough, she’ll pull out the videos of Varadero Beach and the oceans and forests and landmarks of Earth, and rumble soothingly as he cries watching the sunset.
-At one point she shows him an old video his Mama made, a family reunion back in Cuba, and he sobs his heart out but is so grateful because honestly his family memories had started to fade.
-Blue will often sing to him, though it’s more of a current of emotions than words, sounds of the ocean and the rain and whales, always deep and booming but soft and interspersed with the sounds of dolphins and seagulls. Lance wonders if the other Lions do this for their Paladins, but refrains from asking.
-Contrary to most tropes, Lance hates getting injured. But he has pretty bad luck, so it always ends up with him in the healing pods. Sometimes he’ll berate himself for being dumb enough to get hurt.
-Lance, at one point, stops talking as much and nobody knows why until Hunk checks a calendar and nearly screams. It’s Lance’s mother’s birthday today. And Lance was supposed to lead the song this year. Pidge is the one to hug Lance first, followed by Hunk who drags Keith and Shiro into it too, and Lance kinda just breaks down crying and everyone realizes exactly just how badly Lance misses home, misses Earth.
-After all, none of them have super big families like Lance does. Keith barely remembers his dad, Pidge only has her Mum, Dad and brother, Hunk has a sibling and two parents, and Shiro only has his mom and his grandparents. But Lance has so many siblings and cousins and aunts and uncles that he has a whole lot of people to love and lose back on Earth, which must be terrifying to know if the Galra ever do reach Earth, they might get hurt or worse.
-so they soothe and reassure Lance that Earth will be safe and after he’s calmed down they all make it their personal mission to help him as much as he’s helped them with their homesickness.
-PINING BOYS, PINING BOYS EVERYWHERE!!!!
-Shiro has a surprisingly dirty mind, I’m not getting into details, but Lance’s l e g s. Step on him please-
-The first time Shiro hears Lance sing in the showers he is 100% positive he’s heard God himself.
-Likewise for Lance, he was pretty sure that hearing Shiro sing in Japanese was the hottest thing since the man’s pecs!
-Keith is 90% of Shiro’s impulse control (spicy Shiro has spicy ideas and Keith is Done™), but he also wants to punch the man in the face because “For fucks sake Shiro just ask him out already, because if I hear one more fucking sigh out of you I’m stabbing you in the dick you thirsty hoe-”
-Pidge finds out and uses it as blackmail to get out of chores until they get together.
-Thank Alfor the walls are soundproof, Lance is v e r y loud and Shiro is blessed ;3
-Hunk does N O T need to hear how Shiro does THAT like THAT, thank you Lance, please spare his innocence, tmi dude TMI-
-Pidge cannot stop her smug little smirk around Shiro after the first night he and Lance get spicy, because she was the one to threaten the Black Paladin into confessing after she tricked Shiro into practicing how he was going to tell Lance he liked him by recording the practice confession and telling him she’d expose him if he didn’t do it first.
-Lance finds out, but merely high fives the girl instead because he has zero regrets now and Pidge is the best wingwoman he could possibly have backing him up. (TBH Pidge was sick of the pining and decided to cut down the pine trees herself)
-Black approves, Blue is a bit wary but warms up to the Black Paladin and entrusts her cub to him, Black does the same with Lance.
-After-nightmare cuddles. Poor beeb needs to be held ;-; (especially after ones where he loses Lance to the Galra and the Druids ;^;)
-Meme Team™💙🖤 they will joke about memes for hours, Hunk always has to stop Keith from stabbing one of them. “ONE MORE DAT BOI REFERENCE AND I SWEAR-” “Keith please calm down-” “HERE COMES DAT RED BOI-” “*UNHOLY ANGRY SCREECHING*” “oh fuck, Lance run-” “AAAAAAAAAAAAHHH!!!” “*Pidge laughing as she records the entire thing*”
