You should write some mute lance, whether its him having been mute in the past, being a selective mute, being injured and becoming mute, or straight up not talking anymore, i think you'd write it well
I kinda went on my own here, Whoops
On contrary to belief Lance didn’t like to talk. Well scratch that, he loved talking but he didn’t like to be talked over. Everytime he was talked over he immediately clamped up and he felt a lump form in his throat. Being the youngest in his family only lead to Lance being talked over constantly.
It wasn’t uncommon for Lance to stop telling a story because everyone started a different conversation. It wasn’t uncommon for Lance to never finish a thought because someone would constantly interrupt him.
Lance wasn’t a fighter so when this happened he would just clamp his mouth shut and listen to what the other person had to say, because it was obviously more important.
Lance found himself talking less and less around his parents, siblings, and classmates. Nobody ever commented on Lance’s new quietness so Lance had no reason to start talking again. Lance would go days without saying anything to anyone. He communicated through shrugs and nods.
Why should I talk, everyone is happier when I don’t.
Fast forward to the Garrison when Lance met his roommate Hunk. Hunk wasn’t loud but he wasn’t quiet either. Sometimes Lance didn’t even hear him enter the room while other days Lance would hear him hallways away. He liked Hunk, Hunk never pressured him to talk, Hunk just kept him company throughout their days.
Hunk would ramble about projects he was working on and homework and Lance would listen quietly. It didn’t even dawn on Lance that he had never said anything to Hunk before in his life.
They were both in their room, Lance on his bed reading a book while Hunk was laying on the floor building something.
“Dang it, these wires all look the same, I can never tell them apart.” Hunk ran his hands through his hair in annoyance.
Lance looked at his distressed roommate and looked down at his book. “Why don’t you put colored tape around the different wires.” Lance’s voice slightly cracked due to the lack of use and Hunk screamed. Not like a small scream but like ‘help someone is getting stabbed scream.’
Lance jumped causing is book to fly across his bed and he stared at Hunk who was staring at Lance his hands over his mouth.
Lance swallowed around a small lump that was forming at the base of his throat. He inhaled “Sorry I didn’t mean to…scare you?” Lance wasn’t sure what he did wrong exactly.
Hunk blinked a few times and slowly removed his hands from his mouth. His breathing started to slow down as he continued to stare at Lance.
Lance started to shift where he sat. Why he is just staring at me? Lance was about to bolt out of the room but Hunk regained his bearings before he moved.
“I’m sorry for screaming! You just have never talked before and I thought you were mute or something. Then you just spoke and I got scared. Like I wasn’t expecting that at all.” Hunk inhaled until his lungs ached “Sorry I’m rambling.”
Lance smiled at his roommate “Hunk you ramble all the time, I’m used to it.”
Hunk started to laugh and before Lance knew it he was laughing with Hunk. They only stopped when they heard a knock on their door.
“Officer Davis, opened the door. We have a complaint of a noise disturbance.”
Hunk and Lance shared a look and started laughing and Hunk went to open the door.
Hunk and Lance became best friends within a week. They had shared everything with each other, and Hunk didn’t interrupt Lance once when he was talking. If he accidently did he would apologize immediately and beg Lance to continue what he was saying.
Lance started to love talking again.
The only time Lance would have trouble talking would be when he came back from a break. When Lance was around his family long enough he would clamp up again, but slowly Hunk would bring him back out of his shell.
Hunk could only do so much and sometimes it wasn’t enough. They had just saved a planet from the Galra and they were all meeting up with the leader.
Now Lance didn’t usually talk during diplomatic missions but he felt obligated to speak up when it concerned him. The leader was discussing how helpful the blue lion was and how it help save the planet.
“You must tell me Blue paladin, how does the ice work?” The leader placed his (hand?) tentacle on Lance’s shoulder.
“Well you see, Blue and I ha-”
“That’s interesting but like was it just the lion acting on their own?”
“Kinda, you see I have to put my bay-”
“So are you not needed to fly Blue? If she does all the work what do you do?”
“Well I have to fly he-”
“But they are magic lions, surely they can fly on their own.”
Lance opened his mouth to respond but slammed it shut before any words were formed. Then Lance did what he did best, he shrugged. That was all he did.
The leader looked at him a bit skeptical before nodding “So how does the ice get formed?”
Lance shrugged again. He kept his eyes directly on the leader and his lips sealed. Lance was nudged by Shiro, he didn’t care he wasn’t going to talk. He looked at the leader one more time before walking towards Blue and flew back to the castle.
Lance didn’t bounce back like Hunk prayed he would. It had been about 2 weeks since the last time he said anything. He just shrugged and nodded. Never even opening his mouth except to eat. The castle was quieter than any of them wanted it to be. Mealtimes were filled with force conversation and Lance scarfing down his food in order to leave.
Even during missions Lance wouldn’t say anything, Blue would send the other lions messages so everyone knew that things were going well but Lance never talked.
When they met new species Lance would stand in the background silently, just watching everyone.
Hunk tried his hardest. He would talk about things he knew Lance liked, but Lance would just smile and pat him on the back and walk away.
The team couldn’t get Lance to talk, and they tried. They did everything they could but Lance would just sit in silence. He didn’t even talk to Coran, and that broke the older man heart.
The paladins were hosting a party in the castle with about 7 species from different planets. They all worked together and received a huge win.
Everyone was talking and enjoying the party and Lance was standing by the wall sipping his drink. He watched a boy, around his age, walk towards him.
His arms and neck were covered in tattoos and he has pointy ears with piercing all over his body. His skin was a soft blue and his hair was a bright red. He smiled at Lance and stood by him.
The boy thanked Lance for saving his planet, and of course Lance caught onto his flirting techniques.
Lance laughed, like a real laugh. The first laugh in weeks maybe months. It echoed through the room and every paladin heard it. They attempted not to make it obvious but they were all listening to see if Lance would do anything more.
Lance, who was completely oblivious to what his teammates were doing, stuck his hand out to the boy. “The names Lance.”
RULES, RULES. This is important. You need to set rules for yourself,
and if you are truly ana, you will have no problem sticking to them
because you are STRONG! Rules are everything. Examples: Don’t eat
anything white. Do not, under any circumstances, eat after 6:00. Don’t
eat before 3:00. Cut each bite into x amount of pieces, chew x amount of
times. Do not eat anything that has over 3 grams of fat. Make your own
and keep adding to them.
Ana must be the center of your life.
a full glass of water before you eat and then sip a full glass between
bites, you’ll get full much faster. Remember it takes 20 minutes for the
brain to realize the stomach is full.
denser food because it feels like more. Light and fluffy foods compact
in your digestive tract and you will feel hungry soon after.
Take out only the amount of food you plan to eat and don’t allow seconds.
before you eat. Don’t eat while distracted (TV, etc). Stop and consider
if you really want to eat that then consciously give yourself
4 100-calorie meals is better than one 400-calorie meal.
eat anything bigger than about a cup, your stomach will expand and
you’ll get hungry more. If you need to, eat more frequently, not bigger
and other “healthy” bars and shakes have more carbs and calories than
in the meal they’re intended to replace. Stay away.
at least a glass of water every hour. It’s better for weight loss to
sip throughout the day than to chug a full glass (except before eating,
in which case it can make you eat less, or make you slightly nauseous so
you don’t want to eat at all). Try keeping a water bottle somewhere
you’ll see it a lot, like every 10-20 minutes, and take a drink from it
every time you see it/notice it.
up to a shot of apple cider vinegar before eating, it’s supposed to
minimize fat absorption. Also speeds metabolism and can help curb
cravings. Drinking more than a shot causes a vague nausea which helps
Ice or gum are good food substitutes. Celery works too if you’re really hungry.
small, dark colored plates. Dark blue or black makes you eat less, and
smaller plates and utensils cause you to take smaller portions from the
a list of “bad” foods. Periodically, cross one of the list and pledge
to never, ever eat it again. Eventually there will be none left.
in front of a mirror, naked or in underwear if possible. If you can’t,
carry a picture of yourself in a revealing outfit and look at it when
you want to eat. When you have cravings pinch your fat and look at your
problem areas, don’t add to them!
Eat a lot of fiber for digestive health and low calories.
a methodical routine for eating. Cut food into tiny pieces, count your
bites and the number of times you chew, set your utensils down between
bites, and sip water between bites. Add other rules or rituals of your
higher-calorie items earlier in the day so you have more time to burn
them off; if you eat late eat light or it will be more likely to be
stored as fat due to inactivity. Try not to eat too late, sleep burns
calories and is a good opportunity to burn fat with little effort. The
body must burn through all digesting food before taking energy from
stored food (fat).
you go out, take very little money or only enough to buy whatever
non-food item you plan on buying. This will make it harder to buy food
take bites, either from others’ food or while cooking, as the calories
add up surprisingly fast and you may not realize how much extra you’re
down everything you eat and its calories. This will make you think
before eating and also make you more aware of how much food and calories
you are actually consuming. You can also write down other things such
as how you’re feeling, who you’re with, place, time, and why you chose
to eat it, this will help you track patterns in your eating behavior.
Wear a rubber band around your wrist and snap it when you want to eat. Food = pain.
a time you cannot eat past. 6:00 or 7:00pm are good choices. This is
especially helpful if you are prone to night binging. Then make a rule
that you cannot eat before 6:00 or 7:00AM, this is like having a 12-hr
fast every day.
shouldn’t eat for at least 3 hours before going to bed. The extra hours
will help burn off the calories. If you eat soon before sleeping, you
absorb more calories due to inactivity and you put on weight.
Have a peppermint or peppermint tea. Peppermint decreases hunger.
Brush your teeth when you want to eat. The clean feeling and mint aftertaste will put you off food.
Press on your stomach when it grumbles. TUMS also stop stomach growling and have calcium.(5 calories a piece so be careful!)
a list of all the reasons you want to be thin and avoid food. Look at
it when you want to eat to remind yourself why you won’t. Or, write a
new list every time you want to eat. It’ll distract you, postpone
eating, and thinking of the reasons will inspire you.
a ribbon the size you want your waist to be. wrap and tie it around
your wrist like a bracelet. Every time you look at it you’ll be reminded
of your goals. When you’re tempted, take it off and wrap it around your
waist. See how close you are, or how far you have to go, and resist the
leave at least one bite of food on your plate. This will help you to be
able to stop eating and prevent binges. It will also stop you from
compulsively finishing portions even when you have eaten enough.
Save $1 for every meal you don’t eat, then use the money to buy yourself a non-food present.
Friends will only get in the way. Avoid them until you reach your goals.
eat in secret. This is a terrible habit that leads to compulsive
binging. If you wouldn’t eat it in front of all your friends you
shouldn’t be eating it at all! Also if you only eat around other people
they will know that you do eat and assume you eat alone as well, thus
lessening suspicion that you have an ED.
eat out of a box or jar. Always eat from a plate or bowl. This will
help you in several ways: You will see how much you are really eating;
you can determine in advance how much you will eat and not go back for
seconds; using a small plate or bowl will make you eat even less; you
can count/measure out an exact serving and know the accurate amount of
calories you are consuming.
Give clothes to Goodwill as they get too big for you. Don’t keep them around “just in case.”
If you live alone, put thinspo and/or reverse thinspo pictures on the pantry and refrigerator. A mirror works well too.

water before eating. If you’re still hungry, drink green tea or broth.
If you still need to eat, you’ll eat less than you would have.
low-calorie foods with strong flavors. Sometimes you’re craving taste,
not food. For bouillon, use less water than is recommended. Peppermints,
pickles, peppers, and mustard are good choices.
Do not eat anything unless you know the exact amount of calories in it.
Chew gum while cooking. That way you can’t take bites while it is cooking, and you won’t want to eat it once it’s done.
Keep food out of sight, not sitting out, and stay away from food and the kitchen to keep your mind off it.
Keep a pocket thinspo in your wallet with your cash so you won’t spend money on food.
