he looks really young

I know you are blindly in love but can we please acknowledge the fact that Gerard is visibly aging and stop saying that he “always looks the same wow gosh 💖💖 is this pic from 2005??😩😩😩😘😘” because he does not.
He’s aging like any other normal human being.
But please stop it’s getting ridiculous.

A sacrifice had to be made.
They all knew it, the only way to close the worm hole was from the inside, but there was no way of knowing where or if they came out again. Shiro as the leader insisted he should be the one to go, while Allura argued it should be her only for Coran to say she was the only one who wasn’t needed to fight the Glara. Hunk and Pidge had also thrown their hat into the ring.
Everyone was talking over eachother. Everyone but Lance.
While others were arguing about who should go, Lance was already heading into the worm hole.
It wasn’t until the group looked around and noticed the lack of blue did someone say something.
“Where’s Lance?” Shiro asked over the coms.
“Someone had to do it. Let’s face it I’m the most replaceable.” Lance’s voice crackled the line filled with static. “Tell my mama I love her-”
The line went dead as the worm hole closed taking the blue paladin with it.
Of course they looked for him. But with a war still going on eventually Allura had to take over as the blue paladin.
As the years passed they started to believe that Lance had died the day in the worm hole and that they would never see him again.
Until the day after Pidge’s 35th birthday, when the sensors told them a worm hole had opened up nearby.
They had dropped everything to investigate not wanting another incident like they had twenty years ago.
Keith went ahead in red while the others followed in the Castle ship.
Keith had stopped suddenly jetting out of reds cockpit causing Shiro to yell “Keith what are you doing!”
However when they got close they found exactly why.

He was in the healing pod for almost a week, the worm hole had caused more damage then would of been expected. They didn’t leave the whole time he was in there.
He was so still. So painfully young looking that it really it them that he hadn’t aged.
When Lance finally came falling out of the pod and into the waiting arms of Hunk, he just looked around seeing his friends so different to how he knew them to be.
He looked at Allura wearing the blue paladin armour and couldn’t hold back the tears anymore.
He had been fine to die for his team. Why did he have to come back.
Hunk rubbed soothing circles on Lance’s back trying to comfort him in some way.
After a few minutes Lance looked up with only one question.
“Did you tell my mama?
