Langst prompt (or Lanuff whichever way you want to write it, if you want to write it) where Lance has narcolepsy
I found this interesting tbh!!!!
Growing up Lance found himself constantly tired, no matter how much sleep he got he was always tired.
Lance found himself falling asleep during the day, even during his normal routine. He couldn’t control them either one moment he’s awake and the next he’s not.
It also didn’t matter what he was doing, playing a board game with his family? He fell asleep. Playing hide n go seek with his best friend Hunk? He fell asleep.
No matter what he did he would find himself falling into a paralysing sleep, even when he was awake.
His muscle would slack, his jaw would fall open and his arms and legs would feel weak.
He was constantly in a “about to fall asleep/just woke up” state.
A few months before Lance left for the Garrison he was taken to a doctor and he was diagnosed with narcolepsy. It wasn’t anything bad except that his brain didn’t make enough of the chemical hypocretin, which keeps people awake. Lance was okay with the that, it wasn’t hurting him or anyone else. It just meant he had to take more medicine and try to keep his routine changing.
Yet he wasn’t okay with the fact that the Garrison almost denied him when he sent in his medical report. Two days after he did a Garrison member came to his house and talked to him about his “issue”.
Lance and his family assured the Garrison member that Lance would be on top of his game. After hours of pleading and convincing Lance was cleared to go.
At the Garrison Lance was able to keep himself awake for the most part. Between his medicine and Hunk’s support system he didn’t have much of a problem until he wasn’t on Earth and he didn’t have his meds.
As time went on with Team Voltron Lance found himself falling asleep more and more. Hunk would usually keep him awake but when it was just Lance or someone else Lance would pass out.
Of course Lance didn’t mean too it just happened. He felt like he was back on Earth.
Lance venting to Hunk about his concern that he was bring the team down since he fell asleep inside of Blue while they were heading towards a planet.
Hunk assured him that, that was not the case and the team just didn’t know what Lance was going though.
After about a month or so Lance told the team about why he constantly fell asleep. The team understood and the Alteans thought of ways to recreate his medicine.
Lance grinned at the thought of having his medicine again and was told that he would have them in a week or two.
In the meantime Lance found himself falling asleep on his team members but when he eventually woke up that person was either reading or sleeping right beside him. Lance could live with this for awhile.
Sorry this took so long!!!!!
I hope you like it!!!!
Thank you <3
