i know worst to best is an arbitrary concept but. if you had to rank our various lances from your favourite to least favourite, gun to your head... how would you do it
WOW THIS IS A VERY DIFFICULT QUESTION, BUT…if i must…
1. 80′s Lance: Best Boy
i love everything about this boy. everything. he owns my heart and soul. i love his paranoia, his snarky comments, his overwhelming concern for his friends, his hatred of lotor, his support of allura, his camraderie with keith. just…lance.
2. VLD Lance: Goodest Boy
have you ever seen a gooder boy? i think we all know why i love vld lance by now.
[picture redacted for the sake of your eyes, but this would be a screencap of him calling the red lion “kitty-cat” or telling keith “yeah i’m chilling on this asteroid behind you just waiting to fuck lotor’s shit up dw about it” or whining to nobody in particular “i believe i pointed that out before, but does anyone listen to lance? noooo.”]
3. V3D Lance: Dream Boy But Ugly
he was basically all my headcanons about 80′s lance (has ptsd, loves his lion, loathes lotor with every fiber of his being, in-text speculation about his “hunches”, protective of his friends, still has michael bell’s glorious voice…) and then some. he would be absolutely perfect if only he wasn’t horrifyingly animated in 90′s CGI.
4. GoLion Lance: OG Spacefaring Kiss Boy
professional cat-wrangler, kind of an asshole, edgy teenager who is totally not scared of ghosts, fala’s feminist ally, gets away with murder because he’s adorable
5. VF Lance: Bourbon Uncle
he’s so done with this shit but he’ll still risk being frozen to death to save this kid whom he’s basically adopted and he totally hates it when he’s right (no he doesn’t)
6. DDP Lance: Boy Who Deserved Better
because apparently, being a friendly, playful, chatty guy who volunteers to help a foreign planet with their agriculture is just soooooo annoying
i feel so fortunate to be able to stan for the same character in every continuity that he exists in. your fave could never.
