Can I ask why you like lance ? Just curious !
OOH nice! A fun ask!
Ah, Lance became my favorite after a single watch-through of the first season, but it wasn’t really a single thing that just WHOOP, popped it over, that one’s my favorite now. After I watched the first episode I thought all of the characters were adorable, but Lance didn’t stand out to me. Actually, Pidge was my favorite at first. I like the small ones with glasses, what can I say. Probably because those characters ping all of my TOO SMALL MUST PROTECT instincts.
But Lance just kept being…the cutest. When I took five minutes to think about it, I was like, wait a second. That ridiculous flirty obnoxious teenage boy with the fart jokes and the bad sense of timing… Why is he so cute? He keeps talking about bonding. He wants to knit sweaters for little aliens. He offered to climb a tree to impress a girl. He got so homesick for his MOM’S HUGS that he had to leave a party to go have a PRIVATE CRY. Plus the jumping in front of a bomb, and being smart and tactical during the Balmera fight, and his protectiveness for Pidge, his closeness with Hunk… It just kept accumulating, all these moments that made me fall in love with Lance and start to overlook the more irritating parts of his personality.
My obsession with this show hit me fast and hit me hard. And Lance was a huge part of it. Plus on analysis, it looked like he had a big family, which is a big button for me. And the hidden insecurity, the kindness, the way he just wants to save the universe and go home… The more I thought about him, the more I loved him. And like a week later I started writing Boom Crash.
