can’t stop what’s coming // can’t stop what is on its way
all i’m saying is that season 3b of teen wolf looks so fucked up
that season 4 better be a 12 episode mini-series about the gang going to disney world
plot twist: the hales are all alive and the past six years have just been an elaborate joke played on derek after he started a prank war with laura that got out of hand
STILES IS THE ONLY PERSON WHO STAYS/ COMES BACK FOR DEREK.
- THE POOL SCENE
- THE ELEVATOR SCENE
WHILE EVERYONE ELSE EITHER LEAVES HIM OR DOESN’T WANT TO BE ASSOCIATED.
NO ONE BUT STILES LEGITIMATELY CARES ABOUT DEREK. NO ONE.
This is kind of bullshit, you know, especially those two scenes are bullshit to use as an example.
In the pool scene, Erica is there with him and she is kind of knocked out by the Kanima and is unconscious during the whole scene. Boyd and Scott are on the field and they have no idea what’s going on at the pool. Allison and Lydia don’t exactly have a reason to care about Derek that much, yes, but they also don’t know Derek is in danger. Literally everyone except for Stiles and Erica has no idea what’s going on at the pool.
And oh my god, the elevator scene? Really? Scott sees Derek lying in the elevator, but thanks to his super senses he most likely knows Derek is alive (breathing, heartbeat), only unconscious, and he also knows his mother (and Chris and the Sheriff) is in danger, which is why he later leaves with Deucalion. He sees no other option. What would you do in this situation? Isaac is outside with Peter and unconscious Cora in the car. He’s helping the others and doesn’t know what’s with Derek. Again, Allison and Lydia probably still don’t care about Derek that much, plus they don’t know (again!) what is happening inside, because Allison is with Chris and Lydia is not even there. And for the love of God, Erica and Boyd are dead.
Don’t you dare tell me nobody else except for Stiles cares about Derek, okay? What about Scott saving Derek when he got shot? What about Boyd not wanting to leave Derek even though he was shot and the hunters were still firing at them? What about Scott not healing because he thought Derek was dead? What about Boyd and Isaac ditching school and coming to Derek’s loft to help him fight Kali? What about Cora? Does she not care about Derek?
Allison and Lydia most likely don’t care about Derek because they don’t have a very friendly history together, but if you think that nobody but Stiles cares about Derek, then we are probably watching two different shows.
When everyone thought Derek was dead during Motel California Boyd was literally ready to kill the twins because he wanted to avenge Derek. ISAAC BEAT THE CRAP OUT OF ETHAN FOR DEREK. SCOTT WAS DYING BECAUSE HE COULDN’T STAND THE THOUGHT THAT DEREK WAS DEAD.
What did Stiles do or say? Nothing. He did not express so much as a single word of loss or anger. And this is probably because he was too worried about Scott - but the fact is that three other characters expressed more loss over Derek than Stiles did, so don’t go around saying that nobody cares about Derek but Stiles because that’s a load of crap.
And while we’re at it, if you think Lydia or Allison are required to give a single flying fuck about Derek I have NEWS FOR YOU:
- DEREK BLAMED LYDIA FOR BRINGING PETER BACK. Derek looked at Lydia, a victim of mental and emotional trauma, someone who had been manipulated and terrorized and had her mind invaded and violated, and blamed her for bringing the person who terrorized her back to life.
- DEREK BIT ALLISON’S MOM. No, it isn’t Derek’s fault that Victoria died. But if you think that YOU would not bear ill will to someone who, however inadvertently, contributed to your mother’s death - you are either Jesus himself or fucking kidding yourself.
IN CONCLUSION: ship whatever the hell you want but if you have to resort to (a) ignoring canon facts (b) villianizing other characters (c) making straight-up lies about the show (d) erasing other ships/character relationships, including the relationship between a sister and a brother, just to push your ship -
like. Just don’t.
I know I don’t really post ~ship~ stuff here mainly bcos I’m not sure how a lot of you guys feel about it?? but I kind of want to so, uh, yeah. okay.
