Hello may I pls offer a mediocre Dukesaw moodboard that took me four minutes to make in exchange for some Chansaw panic attack headcanons?
akdjkfkf everything about this is my favourite fucking thing honestly. the fact you’re trying to bribe me. the fact you’re asking for chansaw but providing dukesaw because you know it’s my OTP. the fact that it fucking worked… anyways, wasn’t sure which one you wanted having the panic attack orrr what, but here ya go:
when Veronica has a panic attack, it always makes Chandler panic too, bc, what??? does she do???? how??? help??? it often ends up with Chandler just blabbering about how much she loves Veronica and how things are gonna be okay for the duration of the panic attack.
she also likes to hug Veronica and pet her hair but sometimes that makes the panic attack worse so she does her best to gauge the situation by gently touching Veronica’s shoulder and if that doesn’t freak her out, then she hugs her.
chandler has a paper bag in her purse for emergencies, though she often forgets that it’s there. she ends up remembering when Veronica starts grabbing for her purse or hyper ventilating really bad. then she’s quick to get it out and hand it over.
veronica also has panic attacks occasionally. often enough that she knows what to do and how to take care of herself when she feels one coming, but not enough that she has to worry about it impeding on her daily life.
chandler, on the other hand, does not have panic attacks often. it’s normally very rare and only caused by certain triggers from her past trauma, unlike Veronica’s- which are caused by anxiety.
when she DOES have a panic attack, it’s a complete and absolute disaster for pretty much everyone involved.
Chandler herself, does not know how to properly deal with her panic attacks. if she feels one coming, then she’ll run off and hide if she can, but has tried to work through them before. it… didn’t end well.
when Veronica notices she’s having a panic attack, since it’s such a rare thing, she isn’t always sure how to help, because it’s always something very specific that set Chandler off. examples being: a song playing that played while at a party, being called certain nicknames that were used by boys in the past, being touched a certain way, etc. so she isn’t always sure how to help. all she really knows what to do is find Chandler if she’s run off, and get her somewhere safe.
however, she always gets out the paper bag out of Heather’s purse for her, and helps her breathe into it to calm down, because while Chandler forgets it, she doesn’t.
it often just ends up with Chandler curled up against Veronica while she pets her hair until she calms down tho, and that’s really all Chandler can ask for.
