proof that simon monroe is autistic
  • restless fingers, constantly tapping them or rubbing them or wriggling them, especially when anxious
  • one of his key personality traits is becoming obsessed with and 100% invested in people and things (the undead prophet, kieren, etc)
  • he’s bad with timing and social cues (like Incredibly Badly Timed Flirting, trying to pin Kieren and kiss him only a day after their first kiss with Amy still in the bungalow, etc)
  • “what do normal people do?”
  • has a really hard time interacting w/ people and seems uncomfortable in social situations (stays outside at the party, nervous about meeting kieren’s parents)
  • seems to have trouble with facial expressions and adding emotion to his tone tbh, in scenes like the fight with him and Gary at the bar he seems almost intentionally monotone
  • wears a specific type of clothing with a very distinct weight and texture to it (his big jumpers)
  • literally has a meltdown that involves curling up in a corner and covering his ears
  • simon monroe is literally autistic you can’t take this away from me
