its what you think

anonymous asked:

do you mind making some more lance hcs?? I've read all of the other ones like 3 times.

anon that’s a lot of headcanons to be reading lmao.. i don’t shut up about my Blue Boy. This is half headcanon/half character analysis lmao.

WHOM UP FOR SOME LANGST.

  • Lance has a boatload of insecurities, but I don’t think he has depression. (Time to project) What happens is that his ADHD causes him to hyperfocus on his mistakes to the point that he gets trapped in his Hell Brain, stuck in this bad cycle where he constantly berates himself and inflates his personal fears. But he’s normally able to manage because he has a huge support network- his bigass family.
  • There are definitely little kids in Lance’s family, and being around kids who love you is so nice?? Whenever Lance starts feeling weighed down, he plays with his baby siblings/cousins/neighbors and lets their enthusiasm feed his until everyone is bouncing off the walls and being ushered outside. I’ve probably said this before, but Lance was Born to be an uncle.
  • Anyway, Lance is used to being surrounded by people he has a deep connection with who truly care about him and love him. So at the Garrison, when he was far away from his family, he struggled a little bit but ultimately supplemented his human contact quota by befriending pretty much everyone. If he knows that people like him, then he can like himself.
  • Which is why in space he’s kind of… deflating. Because he’s surrounded by people who have rebuffed him before, and it’s hard not to internalize that, ya feel?? Like:
    • Pidge refused to do anything with Hunk & Lance when they were all at the Garrison, which is fair bc she was in Deep Cover, but Lance obvi didn’t know this so he was honestly kind of hurt? 
      • All his attempts at friendship and bonding were coldly shut down the moment they left his mouth. Lance spent many a sleepless nights wondering what was wrong with him, what aspect of his personality made Pidge hate him on sight. 
      • It… sucks to know that no matter what you do, someone will remain distant, especially if you’re used to making friends. Lance is a fixer, but how can you fix something if you only know part of the problem?
    • Keith straight up forgot who Lance was. And you know that Lance had really built-up their relationship in his mind. Even if it’s because Lance claims they ‘hated’ each other, it’s clear that Lance considered Keith special in that he was a goal to beat/overcome, and he clearly assumed Keith viewed him the same way. So when they reunited and Keith didn’t recognize him… Ouch
      • It hurts to realize that you’ve put way more into a relationship than someone else, but it especially sucks if they never even noticed you in the first place. 
      • Also, lots of resentment issues thanks to the Garrison constantly comparing Lance to Keith. Bastards.
    • Shiro is Lance’s hero, but Shiro is such… a jackass to Lance gsdhkjgd I’m so mad about how Shiro has been treating Lance as the show progresses. 
      • Shiro kind of… assumes that they’re equals, which normally is fine, but Shiro physically pushes/shoves Lance around, ignores his opinions, and tells him to knock it off whenever Lance acts like himself. 
      • And between close friends, that behavior can be ‘acceptable’, but again: Lance looks up to Shiro. So this treatment.. I can only see Lance negatively internalizing it. How good of a teammate can you be if your hero only ever treats you as a joke?
    • And Allura… it’s clear she’s really not interested in Lance’s flirting. Which would be fine, but it’s kind of been their entire relationship so far (mainly because of Bad Writing), so when Allura rejects Lance’s bad pick-up line she kind of rejects any connection at all, including friendship.
      • Like, you can argue that this is Lance’s fault for constantly hitting on her, but Allura’s natural response to Lance is either Carefully Maintained Neutrality or clear exasperation.
      • That’s not exactly… a warm welcome, so I could see Lance slowly just starting to avoid her. Because it SUCKS to enter someone’s line of view and immediately see their smile drop a fraction. It sucks to know that someone immediately has their guard up the moment you try to talk to them. It sucks to feel like you’ve sabotaged any chances before you even knew you had them. It sucks to realize that you, and your personality, made someone feel this way, and that you are the problem. From there, you learn it’s better to just… stay away, and stay quiet.
  • TLDR Lance is really only comfortable comfortable around Hunk and Coran. And the Space Mice, provided they don’t rat him out to Allura.
  • Lance internalizes a lot of stuff lmao. He reacts by overcompensating; when he feels hurt or out of his depth, he amps up his ego, he goes all out with the flirting, he uses bravado to cover up any cracks in his armor. 
    • (If you keep making them laugh, then they’re too busy to laugh at you.)
  • Lance is his own worst enemy. If someone yells at him and calls him a failure, he can get righteously angry and ignore what they said or crack a joke to ease the tension. He can deflect. It’s when he’s alone, when he has time to think, that he begins to place more pressure on himself.
    • You know how people can become paralyzed by their perfectionism? They’re so worried about getting the end product perfect that they can’t even start the process. That’s Lance, to some extent.
  • He prunes his own self/image. If he can’t get something right, he cuts it out of his personality. He doesn’t cling to it. He gets rid of anything he thinks makes him a failure, anything that shows that he’s useless. All those branches, traits, imperfections- they’re snipped away. And what he’s left with, he clings to. This is his absolute. This is his foundation. These are the tenants he builds himself up from. He’s the ladies man. He’s the sharpshooter. He’s the funny one. This is what makes Lance McClain worthwhile.
  • So when that foundation gets rocked… it’s bad. And normally, he can spring back, because he has his support network. But right now he’s billions of light years away from home, stuck with a team that only seems to like him 70% of the time.

The Baudelaire’s refusal to be grateful for their unfortunate events seemed like such a good message for kids - so I made a thing.

Character development from Ep 1-8
  • Yuri Ep 1: oh my god I can't believe Victor is here! I don't deserve this! I hope I don't disappoint him
  • Yuri Ep 8: I more than deserve. Tie my shoes and don't you dare look away for even a second, you're mine now Victor

i can’t stop thinking about what kind of criers dan and phil would be. i feel like dan’s crying would be a slow build up. his eyes just get watery at first, and he tries so hard to keep it in, but eventually the tears start cascading down his cheeks. he’d get a runny nose and his forehead would crease out of frustration because he hates crying, but he does it all the time. when his crying hits its peak, he’d be a blubbering mess, wiping furiously at his tears and constantly blowing his nose. he doesn’t like to be comforted while he’s crying, but when he’s finished and all that’s left is tear stained cheeks, he’d cling to the closest thing, preferably another person that would play with his hair, rub his back, and comfort him quietly.

phil on the other hand is a quiet crier. it happens really suddenly because he’s not afraid to be emotional and soft. his tears build up and he doesn’t try to hold them back. his eyes get red and puffy, and he tries to wipe away the tears quickly with his sleeve. he gets sniffly, but hides it by taking deep breaths through his mouth. his eyes are glossy and doe-like when his crying reaches the climax. he likes to be held the whole way through, even if it’s just someone holding his hand or resting a hand on his knee. physical contact calms him down and helps him feel more real. his favorite thing is when people rub their fingers up and down his arm, it nearly lulls him to sleep, but it distracts him from whatever it is he’s crying about.

Gay Aphobe: Headcanoning gay characters as ace is homophobic because it steals representation from the gay community

Me:

Having dissociative amnesia is so weird because it’s not like normal forgetting where you’re kind of like “I think this happened but I don’t know the details”, it’s looking back at a period of your life and seeing absolutely nothing. There is nothing TO remember, it’s just like a big black pit where your childhood should be.

There were certain rules to being a veterinary technician.

Number one, waterproof mascara and eyeliner always! When the customer cries, you cry. Number two, carry a lint roller on you at all times; it’s best to get the pocket-sized one, because Mr. Twinkles sheds a lot! Number three, iron your scrubs! And it’s probably best to keep an extra pair in your car, because Mrs. Comier’s Jack Russell likes to pee on people.

Even though you knew these rules by heart, and you followed them every single day of your work-life, today was an exception. It was just one of those days that absolutely nothing- no matter how hard you tried- was going right. You were covered in fluffy cat hairs, Mrs. Comier’s Jack Russell peed on your leg twice, and you had run out of waterproof mascara; so when Mr. Langley brought in his thirteen year old Labrador to put her down, he cried, and so you cried, and in the end you looked like the raccoon that liked to sneak into the office dumpsters at closing.

Today just wasn’t your day.

The Party part 16/?

K: …

L: …

L: Aren’t you going to say anything?

L: Whoa okay settle down-

K: Lance do you… even like me?

L: What?

K: Don’t ‘what’ me you know exactly what I’m talking about.

K: You walk around flirting with any mildly attractive alien we come across and I can’t help but feel like…

L: Like what?

K: Like I’m nothing special to you! Just another person you can flirt with when you feel like it, then move onto the next because it’s no big deal to you

K: d-don’t you know how much I care about you?

K: I-I mean we have arguments and disagreements and I know you’d probably be happy with someone else but to lead me on like this… and for this long.

K: It’s fucking cruel!

K: Is everything that you’ve done just some kind of petty game? Another competition you want to beat me at?! another way you can one up me!?

K: If that’s the case then, you must really hate me! a-and I know this all just might be my fault for forcing things, instead of just letting myself hate you-

K: Too….

okay people sit down and get comfy ‘cause we need to have a talk

Now as you all know, Tracer was confirmed just yesterday to be gay and the way they revealed this was by having her kiss her cute as a button girlfriend. It’s a day for celebration because not only was this what a lot of people wanted/have been saying since Day 1, but it also means that a multi-billionaire company with the hottest triple A game of the year not only recognizes the LGBT community and implements it in the lore of said game, but also that she is the very face of said game.

It’s huge. Big day for all the gays around.

Well, so it would seem.

Now unfortunately most of those who had previously shipped Tracer with someone else (and I’m specifically calling out the widowtracer shippers) are a bit disappointed. That’s fair. I was a little upset that Tracer has a girlfriend already, but I’ve known from the start of shipping widowtracer that there was only a 0.2% chance of it ever being canon. 

But it’s okay to be upset. It’s okay to want to ignore that part of canon and still focus on widowtracer. Multi-shipping isn’t for everyone. And that’s a-okay.

But then some people do things that’s not a-okay. Like asking artists to draw Widowmaker hurting Emily. Or writing about stuffing Emily dead in a fridge and leaving her for Tracer to find (it’s a legitimate fic but I won’t provide the link).

Like, what the actual fuck you guys? We can’t even have a nice thing for one day before you all decide to act like you don’t got any goddamn common sense about you.

Emily does not deserve to be treated this way. I don’t care if you don’t like her. I don’t care if she gets in the way of your other Tracer ships. Emily does not deserve to be treated this way. She makes Tracer happy. She’s done nothing wrong.

And moving past this point, to all who are making this automatically about shipping I have the feeling you don’t understand the magnitude of what has actually happened here. 

Tracer, the mascot of Overwatch, the very poster child herself that is on every box sold, is the icon of the game, is the most and easiest character to recognize from one of the most successful triple A games this year and is seen in every advertisement, has a statue of herself at the Blizzard office, and most definitely one of the most popular characters of the game is gay. The face of Overwatch is a sapphic woman…..like it’s honestly so mind-blowing and monumental that this has happened in such a positive light with such a world renown game, giving us the representation we’ve so badly wanted.

And you guys are….making this about shipping. So much to the point where you’re apparently so angry at Tracer’s canon gf that you want to prove a point by showing her hurt or dead because in your minds, Tracer only belongs with Widowmaker? Like, that’s honestly what it looks like and you guys need to C H I L L.

And I feel like I’m going to get the argument that “Oh but it would be in character for Widowmaker to hurt Emily”.

Yeah. If it were part of a mission and Talon told her to do it because of that age old trope where the hero’s weakest spot is the people they love. That would make total sense.

But because she’s jealous? Now you guys are being cruel. 

And yeah, I’d understand if you all did it or wrote it in a way where, yes, Widowmaker hurts Emily because of jealousy and portrayed it in a bad BAD way. If you made it clear that you do not condone Widowmaker’s actions and recognize them as cruel and evil.

But y’all don’t. You do it because you want Widowmaker to have some sort of control over Tracer’s relationships as a way of bringing Tracer closer to her and painting it in a positive light because “hey I ship widowtracer not tracer and that bitch”.

And that’s really, really not okay guys.

comparing your art to someone else’s is gross

if you catch yourself getting discouraged, look at your old art. look at how much you’ve improved. look for the things you enjoy about your art. being able to appreciate your own growth is so important

you’re not in competition with anyone! there’s no rush. if you keep drawing, you’ll never stop getting better. don’t give up! keep having fun and doing your best no matter what anyone else says!

Let me start off by saying that I agree with the OP. Someone who tells you that they’re the only one in the entire world that gives a damn about you may be using it as an abusive tactic… HOWEVER, that’s not the point of this post.

The point is that I don’t agree with the add-on that I circled.

A lot of mentally ill people, a lot of people with BPD, really, truly, believe that nobody cares about them. We really, truly, believe that our FP/SO/Best Friend/Etc are the only ones in the world who give a damn about us.

If we tell you that you’re the only person who cares about us, we’re not saying it as an abusive tactic, we’re saying it because it’s GENUINELY how we feel. Hell, sometimes we feel like NOBODY, not even YOU care about us!

If somebody tells you something similar to what I circled, maybe step back for a second and take into consideration that that’s what they genuinely may think. Please PLEASE don’t abandon someone who thinks you’re the only one who cares. Try to dig deeper. Try to convince them that it’s impossible for just one person out of the millions in the world to care about us.

Try to make us see that people DO care. Don’t abandon us if we genuinely believe you’re the only one in the world who gives a damn.

Cause if you leave, we’ll just believe that nobody cares.

One is better than none.
