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.
If I Wrote a Love Letter

If I wrote a love letter, it would tell you how much I love you. It would say how I love you to be around, to be there for me. It would say how much I like the way you look, your smell, your eyes, your hair. But it would also talk about how I love to hug you. How I love the way you feel when I hold you really close. How your whispers to me can turn me on. When you say my name, or call me baby, really low, to where it’s only me, in the whole world, only me, I get to hear it. I fuckin’ love that. How I love to spoon with you, just spoon because we fit so well together. How when I’m on top of you the sweat sparkles, and girl you look good wet like that. My letter would say I miss you, even if it’s only been an hour apart. I’d write that my life changed forever when we met, and I ain’t giving it back. It’s my life now. Forever. I’d say your kiss is what I look most forward to. Lots of kisses. I’d tell you my truck isn’t fast enough to get me there, but I’m tryin’! It would have the part in it about you make my life worth living, and I want to love you forever. And ever. It would say all that, maybe more.

…….but, would you read it?

I'm sorry James, but I have to vent for a minute. I love your videos and I've been watching your channel ever since you reviewed the original Tomb Raider game but recently I've been getting so pissed off with your videos, the Film Friday ones to be precise. In many of the reviews you complain that some of the actors and actresses cannot act (like Sophie in the BFG and the girl from Halloween) but I don't think you have any right to say that when you (no offence) can't act very well yourself.

Thanks for watching for that long!

Also, I don’t quite get what you mean, I’m afraid. Not only have I never EVER claimed to be an actor and never even studied it, but in critique that’s totally fair for me to say - otherwise your logic would state that you can’t call me a ‘bad actor’ unless you yourself were a good actor! I thought the child acting in BFG was so bad that I couldn’t believe everyone was okay with it being released - and you think my performing is shit. It’s fair game! No hard feelings. :)

Alright, kids. It’s kinda late but my days are usually pretty busy lately. So you’re gonna have to deal with the late night intro. I’m Charlie and you can call me whatever you like. I’ll learn to answer to it eventually. Or I won’t. I’m getting old and I’m not good at learning new tricks. I’m currently running press tours for a couple films coming out early this year, which means I’m gonna be all over the world for a little while. Try not to look too closely at the hair, you might find some grey ones.

You can find me on aim at cyanidesweettooth if you ever wanna chat.

First Of All

Request: can you do an avengers one wher e the reader is wearing a captain america shirt and tony tells her to change and she just responds by playing that vine that’s like “first of all i look good in this shirt”

Character: Tony Stark

AN: Tony is good and I love him and I will defend him with my last breath

.

“(Y/N), can you toss me the sriracha?” Tony called from his spot on the couch. 

You plunked down on the opposite end of the couch and threw the bottle at him and then pulled your sweatshirt off, revealing the Captain America shirt that you had on.

Tony choked on his noodles and then glared at you. 

“What?”

“Shirt?”

“What about it?” 

“You’re on my side, why are you wearing that?”

You held up a hand, typed something into your phone, and then held it up. 

Tony could see a guy pounding on a wall and chanting: “Bruh, first of all I look good in this shirt and second of all I look good in this shirt and third of all I look good in this shirt, so tell me I don’t look good in this shirt!”

He held his hands up in surrender. “Okay, okay, I get it.”

You rolled your eyes. “Tony, just because I happen to agree with you about the treaty doesn’t mean I’m going to stop wearing my clothes. You’re a grown ass man, I feel like you can deal with me wearing a shirt with Cap’s shield on it.”

“Okay, okay, okay. I’ll leave you alone about the shirt, jeez.”

You smiled smugly and sat back in your seat. “If it makes you feel any better, I had almost the exact same argument with Cap the other day when I wore my Iron Man shirt to dinner with him and Bucky.”

Tony grinned. “You know what, it kind of does.”

so I wanted to talk about what happened yesterday and why I was stressed tf out. my tiny 11 week old puppy fell off the couch. like that may not seem like a big deal, but it is if you’re a tiny chihuahua that doesn’t even weigh a kilo. I was upstairs when it happened, with semi-noise cancelling headphones, and I heard her fall, so you can imagine how hard she fell. my mom called me downstairs and the dog was completely unresponsive, her eyes were bugged out, and her tongue was out of her mouth, we thought she hit her head in a bad way and that she was going to die. my mom was a mess so I was supposed to be the calm one, and I was, and I held the puppy while my mom called the emergency vet because this all happened after office hours. she ended up being completely fine, the fall scared the dog so bad that she went into shock, that was why she was acting the way she was. like the height of sofa to ground is pretty big for a tiny chihuahua, like I’d be in shock too if I fell down the stairs pretty hard or something. but I’m glad she’s okay because really we thought it was over.

So I took these today before heading to class (hence the middle picture lol). It’s been a long time since I’ve posted pics of myself without something covering my face due to my wildly increasing insecurities (and my depression being a huge part of it), swallowing me up since I guess you can call it a “relapse” early last year. I’m still a little self conscious but I feel it a lot less and that’s huge for me. At least in the face..It’s probably just today, but I’ll find out tomorrow. It’s probably because my friend dyed and cut my hair, and then my boyfriend’s little sister straightened it lol. I also feel it’s because my boyfriend tells me how beautiful I am multiple times a day and whenever I smile at him he gets very happy because “my smile is his favorite.” For now, I’m taking advantage. I sat at my new desk and the lighting of the window + my lamp is incredible. Yeah, I’m growing out my eyebrows too. It’s such a pain but for some reason, it doesn’t bother me today. I just feel good.

Hello friends ! this is probably the hardest thing I’ve had to post and I’m not even sure why. I just wanted to formally announce to those I haven’t told yet that I’m now going by the name AJ. I’ve been sitting with this name since I came out as non binary and I’ve just been waiting for the right time to actually tell people, and now feels like the right time. I know it’s kind of sudden and new but it’ll mean so much if you guys can try your best to call me AJ (I still use they/them pronouns too). Thank you all so much for the constant support 🐝🌷💌
