i need derek hale to be the handsome hobo stiles thinks lives near his apartment. when in fact, derek lives in the same building and just has the worst personal grooming habits ever
"the handsome hobo saved me from being mugged, scott!"
"stiles, that’s derek hale, he lives in 6B."
I’m laughing really hard jen. Stiles should 100% have a reason to believe this, like he sees Derek digging through trash (he accidentally threw something important out) and sleeping on a park bench (he loaned his sister his keys while at work and she said she would return them in an hour, not TEN) and maybe mistakes Derek standing on the corner with a coffee waiting for a drive as Derek bumming change (a la that scene from 2 week’s notice) and so Stiles went into McDonalds and bought him a breakfast sandwich and Derek was SO CONFUSED (but took it because free sandwich).
and derek having conversations with his sisters about the overly friendly hipster
"i mean, he gave me mittens"
"is that code for a weird sex thing, derek? because i don’t want to know"
"pfft! like derek knows anything about sex"
And Derek’s answer is to say really loudly from the front stoop of the building “I KNOW ABOUT SEX OK?” and he hangs up on his sisters only to see Stiles staring at him in horror from the bottom of the steps, eyes wide.
And Stiles goes “oh no dude! I know things are bad, but don’t sell yourself. My dad’s a cop, maybe he knows someone who could help.”
Derek has zero idea what he’s talking about, and it must show on his face because the kid backpedals and flails a little.
"But, like, there’s nothing wrong with it if you already are, it’s just LOOK AT YOU, you’d probably make bank, so it’s a good assumption that you’re not and look, I’m just going to go. You can buzz up to 4C if it gets too cold tonight. Please. I worry. The mitts are working out ok?"
Derek’s even MORE confused, because he’s not sure if he was just propositioned, or if this is about the mittens… maybe there’s a matching hat and scarf set the kid thinks he’s going to sleep in or something????
Stiles decides on a nice tote bag to give him. I mean, the tote totally is cool. It’s one of those literacy awareness ones. And holds the hat Stiles’ finished knitting last night when he was watching the weather channel. With Scott looking at him with concern before leaving for a date with Allison.
But the handsome hobo isn’t outside. Stiles briefly panics. It didn’t drop below freezing last night. BUT STILL. He has to shake his head at imagining the handsome hobo in flagrante delicto with some sleezy perv. Handsome hobo deserves to be wooed.
Derek takes up using the tote bag to lug his books to work, because if there’s one thing he’s noticed, it’s that his students could learn a thing or two about literacy (for fuckssakes he’s not teaching high school, it shouldn’t be difficult to understand comma splices AND MAKE SURE YOU’RE SPELLING THE TOPIC OF YOUR ESSAY RIGHT).
Every time Stiles sees it, with the hat sticking out of the top next to his travel mug, he goes a little pink, but Derek thinks that might be because winter is coming.
He says that to Stiles in somber tones and the guy just seems to vibrate in one spot and look at him like Derek is the best thing he’s ever seen, and Derek gets the reference, he does, but so does EVERYONE these days. It doesn’t take a certain level of literacy to understand George R R Martin anymore.
(Derek really loves the tote) (no matter how awkward the kid who gave it to him was, all “it can hold your stuff. you know… STUFF. From your job. Stay safe, ok?” and Derek had just answered “ok” in a confused tone)
The next time Stiles sees him, he seems more subdued. “Winter is coming,” he says as somberly as the characters from the books, and hands over a scarf.
Stiles nearly drops the coffee he’s holding in shock. There’s a girl talking to Handsome Hobo, she’s wearing a leather jacket and wool tights and a knitted dress that he’s swore he’s seen Allison and Lydia gush over. She’s getting into a cab wearing the scarf Stiles made.
It’s worse than Stiles thought. Handsome Hobo is being taken advantage of.
Derek waves Cora’s cab off. Thanksgiving break with two sisters in the same city wasn’t so bad. He only realizes when the cold creeps down his spin that she stole his scarf.
AHAHAHAHAHAHAHA HOBO!DEREK IS THE BEST THING EVER
Alright everyone, THE ELITE 8 HAS BEGUN!!!
Voting goes until Wednesday, August 7th and our Teen Wolf ships have some tough battles ahead of them!
Sterek vs. Kirk/Spock (classic)
Stanny vs. Johnlock
Scisaac vs. Wincest
These are all ships with LARGE fandoms behind them, so without further ado,
Congratulations to Stanny, Sterek, & Scisaac for moving to the next round of the Ultimate Slash Madness! Way to go fandom!!!
Then you post it in the Sterek tag, or use the “Lol Dennifer” or “Anti-Dennifer” tags. The Dennifer tag is where people…
I thought the “Dennifer tag” was where people go if they wanted to see any and all posts about the couple. Nothing in the tag says “Only warm feelings”. Since you seem to be such an expert on “tags” why dont you go through the ENTIRE “Dennifer tag” and judge whether or not they posted the “correct” post for your “tag”?
I sort of want to pet your cute little head. Just a little. Because of your adorable inability to grasp both the rules of polite tumblr interaction as well as how to hit the reblog button so we can carry on a continuous conversation.
I think you’re just jealous of my fantastic gifs. I understand. They are pretty amazing.
To be honest, I generally avoid the Dennifer tag because of asshats like you who haven’t yet matured into full grown adults. You were just lucky enough to have been found on my journey through the Dethan tag. Also a ship of wonderous joy. And yes, anyone posting anti-tag shit in any of the tags for that ship are similar idiots. Even if they post negative shit about Sterek in the Sterek tags.
Oh, I’m sorry, I forgot we were doing the quote thing. Let me try. In this vast “human” world we “live in,” we generally “get along” by “polite” interaction. Social niceties don’t “go away” just because we get “online”.
You were totally right. Quotation marks really do make things more snappy! I am going to add them to my repertoire right away!
Get. Your. SHIT. out of the Dennifer tag.
The tag does NOT belong to you. I will post whatever I see fit. This post wasn’t meant to start drama, I just wanted to express my thoughts and opinions on the show. Don’t bother re-blogging it if you didn’t like it. If you actually READ what I wrote then perhaps you’d get that the post was meant to justify the Sterek fandom’s anger.
Then you post it in the Sterek tag, or use the “Lol Dennifer” or “Anti-Dennifer” tags. The Dennifer tag is where people go to find gifs and stories and happy thoughts about their ship, not to read your dumbass wank. Assholes who post hate in the tag are just that: assholes. So don’t be surprised when your shit gets called out. Every. Single. Time.
And sweet pea, trust me, I read your ranting, bad spelling and all. If you’re wanting to justify the percentage of the Sterek fandom that agrees with you (and for God’s sake, do not pretend you speak for the Sterek fandom as a whole), then learn to formulate a coherent, logical argument.
Let me preface this by saying I’m not delusional enough to actually BELIEVE that Teen Wolf cares about how we feel about their characters. A lot of shows have done whatever they want regardless of fan opinion. That being said, I feel like the writers, producers and heads of Teen Wolf have decided to spit in their fans’ faces. Why you ask? No it’s not because STEREK isn’t cannon. Some of the BEST ships are those that are not cannon like Spirk (Spock and Kirk from Star Trek), DESTIEL (Dean and Castiel from Supernatural) and WonderBat (Wonder Woman and Batman from the Justice League shows). I don’t care that STEREK isn’t cannon, I care that the writers decided to re-write what the fans had established as STEREK scenes and make them into Dennifer scenes. Also I am LIVID with the fact that the writers decided to give a character trust issues then take them away COMPLETELY all of a sudden. that to me, is shoddy writing and terrible characterization. Ship who ever you want, trash whatever ship you want, but don’t sit there and tell the SEREK shippers that we’re overreacting. At the end of the day, Teen Wolf doesn’t belong to the fans, so we don’t have a say in what makes it in the show. Let’s just sit back and enjoy that Danny has a love interest finally and shift our focus onto Dethan. For now.
Get. Your. SHIT. out of the Dennifer tag.
After two seasons of showcasing nothing but heterosexual relationships, Teen Wolf will be taking a big risk next Monday by showing a gay sex scene between Danny, who’s already been shown as canonically gay, and Ethan, one of the Alpha twins. The two have shown a mutual attraction to each other; whether they are romantically interested like Scott and Allison, or just looking for a quick hookup like Lydia and her many S3 boys, it’s only fair to give their relations the screentime that it deserves.
This is a big step for MTV, because, while gay characters on TV are becoming a dime a dozen, they’re rarely shown actually acting on queer desire. Where heterosexual interactions are so normalized that we don’t even bat eyes at a sex scene, for same-sex couples, even just showing them kissing passionately is treated by many as a nigh-pornographic taboo. For Teen Wolf to include a gay sex scene, and to treat it with the same sort of kitschy, sexy Teen Sex™ vibe that we get from any of the other characters getting it on with members of the opposite sex? That’s pretty groundbreaking, and I’d expect all the people who have been clamoring at Teen Wolf creator Jeff Davis to step up the queer representation to be really excited.
in love with dethan but i just don’t think it’s fair. sterek was there first
See….Danny has always been openly queer on the show. And people have been asking for him to have a viable, story centric romance since the very beginning of the show. Sterek was not anywhere first. Because Sterek is a fan creation. It’s a resistant reading of the text, which I am all for, do not get me wrong, but Jeff has clearly said, on multiple occasions, that this was not the way he intended for the relationship to be read. Does that mean the reading is wrong? No, because media is, as always, interactive. But it does mean that when you sit here and criticize the development of a canon queer character because “sterek was there first,” you sound like an asshole, and one that doesn’t give two shits about queer representation in the media.
I don’t know any off the top of my head. I’m sure they’re there, it’s just not a particular kink of mine so I’ve never looked. Followers, do you know of any fics we can point Anon toward? If so, either reply or hit up my Ask box, and I’ll pass them along.
I so rarely find Sterek fics I like anymore, but this one is just gorgeous. (except for that one time they use the term “Make Love”, which just makes my skin crawl, but really, the story is lovely, so I’ll pretend it’s not there…)
Fandom: Teen Wolf
Rating: M (but I actually don’t think it’s more than a “T”)
Summary: There are selkies being controlled, and a witch out for power, and there’s Derek and Stiles. There’s always Derek and Stiles, and if Derek has his way, it will always, always be that way.
