“What are you doing?”
“Isn’t it obvious? I’m killing you”
re: my last reblog, one of the great things about Teen Wolf (and also The Vampire Diaries - and Scandal, to mix it up with the non-supernatural) is that the amount of stuff happening in ~three episodes on that show would take a whole goddamn season for another show. It’s action packed and it moves fast but because of that most of the traumatic sequelae are brushed off and brushed under the rug unless Jeff Davis decides he wants to make a big deal about it (i.e. Stiles’s closeup with Ms Morrell near the end of S2). I mean, you have someone like S2 Lydia who is having trouble functioning because of what happened in the S1 finale, but godddddd forbid anyone talk about it or even reference it, much less acknowledge that what happened to her was traumatic. And remember when Stiles got the shit beat out of him. And Jackson was dead there for a bit. And Danny was poisoned and paralyzed. And Scott got bit and mindfucked. And Allison’s own dad kidnapped her. Or any of like a billion things that happen on any episode because jesus christ.
like, ngl, but sometimes I feel like the four month break before S3 is mostly so Jeff Davis can be like ‘dealing with… trauma? but I just want to write about my super cool Alpha Pack, man.’ so Lydia will come back fine and over Jackson and Allison will be kind of removed and a little awkward (but let’s get real, she’ll be back in the mix of it soon enough) and Scott and Isaac will be buddying it up and Stiles will be jealous of that and not worrying about any of a million other things and Derek will be manpaining and failwolfing instead of rocking back and forth in a corner somewhere.
When Allison decides to go off the map for a bit, the only person who sees her is Isaac.
Not because they have a big secret love affair, but because Allison spends more time at her Mothers grave than she’ll ever admit to anyone.
See, Isaac needs his time alone. And even if he doesn’t have to work at the graveyard anymore, he does. He likes the quiet.
He doesn’t worry about her, though. He knows how grief goes. It becomes a thing between them. The awkward glances when he sees her writing next to her Mom’s grave. The tiny smiles they give each other in greeting or goodbyes.
He decides it’s better not to listen when she starts talking to the headstone. It feels too personal for him to hear what she says. It’s not for him. It’s for her.
He doesn’t realize how much he got used to seeing her there until she doesn’t show up anymore. It surprises and scares him at the same time.
