On an off day in the Bureau of Balance, Magnus wakes up before Taako and Merle and leaves to run an errand to the Fantasy Costco. Not wanting to leave the other boys wondering where he was if they awoke before he was back, he scribbles a note quickly and leaves it on the table of their shared living room. Taako wakes up second- he doesn’t really care that Magnus is gone, but the note on the table catches his eye. In Magnus’ barely legible handwriting are two words: “Back soon.” Softly, and without knowing why, Taako starts to cry.
made by someone who’s got adhd and who loves lance. go figure!!!!
lance is a combination adhd type who leans more towards inattentive than hyperactive, but does have his moments!
teachers would be confused because he’s a bright kid who has a lot of potential but always turns his homework in late or not at all.
it’s the mix of procrastination, executive dysfunction, and fear that the assignment isn’t good enough.
stims by using his legs. does the leggy bounce™, leg shake™, the bicycle in the air™, stretches™, etc.
some bitch ass teacher: lance can you stay still for a second? you’re distracting the class. lance, who shakes his leg even more: just saying, but the only one who doesn’t seem really focused on the lecture is you.
knows other people perceive him as being dumb or annoying because of his symptoms. even if he pretends otherwise.
some neurotypical: ooo shiny! a squirrel! haha, i’m so adhd and random. lance: you’re like the worst type of person.
when the rsd hits and he feels the suffocating feelings that come with it
happens when he least expects it to. (i.e. in episode 4 where he talked about his mom)
the emotions gets him really fast. sometimes he’ll start crying without meaning to, or end up getting so angry in a flash and then acting like nothing ever happened.
will usually isolate himself in order to not ‘burden’ anyone with it.
lance would frustrate cry if he was stuck on an assignment that should’ve taken only half an hour, but he’s on hour three, it’s past midnight, and he can’t read.
every time the teachers say that there’s no reason for anyone to not finish their homework, lance looks into the camera like he’s in the office.
hyperfixates. a lot. anything regarding the ocean, space, flying, adventure, the great unknown are some of his known hyperfixations.
has a hard time sleeping because his brain won’t stop. just never stops.
also has a tendency to have bad memory/comprehension issues
will ask for things to be repeated because sometimes he literally cannot understand or even remember what the other person said
allura: lance, please pay attention while we’re giving the instruction for the plan. this is important. lance: i know, my bad. i was just looking at keith’s hair and noticed that his hair curls around his ears. keith: what? lance: you have my full attention, princess!
