This is not meant to offend anyone. In simply asking a question. Why is it so important for Teen Wolf to have a gay main character when so few other shows do? Please don’t start text yelling. I’m just asking.
Answer’s in your post: precisely because so few other shows do.
nope that's not how derek gets shot, if you notice his clothes are different and the setting/lighting/everything is completely different from the scene where he has that giant bleeding hole in his abdomen...
I know it’s not how he gets shot, I am just saying what these feels do to me. He’s got a white T-shirt in the scene with the others and a dark one when he gets shot (and decides to make a barbecue out of Papa Argent), I did notice that, but as I said, the post was just about how my irrational feels were all over the place.
But I do think the setting is the same, though, because if you look closely, you can see those big windows in the background when he gets shot and they’re exactly like the ones in Derek’s loft, as is the table behind him when he crumbles to the floor.
But I am still convinced that Derek is going to do something in this scene, since he’s the one no one seems to be paying attention to.
So I do understand what I am going to write is probably utter nonsense because these are my feels speaking and they’re not really objective, but.
During that fight in Derek’s loft between Stiles, Papa Stilinski, Allison and Papa Argent about whether or not they should shoot Stiles, Derek is the only one not saying a word and just getting closer to Stiles and my imagination gets wild because it actually looks like he’s just being very quiet and bracing himself about the stupid thing he knows he’s about to do, and I basically picture him casting himself between Argent and Stiles and that’s how he gets shot.
Because sorry, but they’re all yelling at each other in this room except for Derek, so I am trying to figure out what Derek is actually planning to do while no one’s noticing him. Surely he’s going to take advantage of everyone being too busy focusing on the fight to pay too much attention to him.
And my soft heart hopes he’s going to lunge forward to protect Stiles from being shot, because he knows it’s a very stupid thing to do but he cannot stay put and do nothing while he remembers Stiles’ saved his life before, too.
Yes, I do know that I watch too many rom coms and stuff. But that’s a beautiful thing to picture.
Pretty sure half of those sentences are much too long to make any sense, but what can I say? Overwhelming feels.
Truth? I really don’t care who Stiles ends up with.
But what I care about is that he gets a romance storyline deserving of his sweet and dorky character. It can be anyone as long as it’s not cheap and rushed and a bad cliché, I’ll take it.
Also, I don’t think Sterek will ever become canon (oh, the sweet dream, though), but it would be nice if the writers stopped toying with the idea that Stiles might be intrigued by the “gay lifestyle” and actually got him to experiment with a boy, like Danny (helping a bro figuring things out, because Danny’s cool).
Stiles doesn’t have to be bi in the end, maybe he would just decide he doesn’t like it and sticks to girls, but that would be nice because although apparently confused Stiles is really cute, I don’t know how long I can go on without any certainties about his sexual orientation; it’d be nice if he got to clearly make up his mind like any teenager, whether it’s to decide that he’s straight or bi or pan or anything.
For the sake of my sanity and that of the whole fandom (like the writers care about that, I know.)
But as long as the quality of the writing is here and it respects Stiles’ character the way Dylan got to portray him before Stiles became all possessed and shit, I won’t protest.
(But let’s face it, according to my criteria, Malia and Stiles are off to a really bad start. Because of how that started, I might always complain about Stalia.)
"Although developmental change runs parallel with chronological age, age itself cannot cause development. The basic mechanisms or causes of developmental change are genetic factors and environmental factors. (…) Environmental factors affecting development may include (…) social, emotional, and cognitive experiences."
My answer as a sociology student to everyone saying that no, Malia isn’t mentally 9 just because she’s lived as a coyote since she was 9.
I find it sad that some people actually think it’s bullshit that Malia would indeed be mentally 9.
You can tell they’ve never set foot in a sociology/anthropology class before, because if they had, they would know that the whole point of the brain developing so you can grow into a fully functioning human being is through human contact.
That’s right, it’s being with people that make you able to mature mentally and emotionnaly. I don’t care how much of Malia is still human while she was a coyote, but the fact that she only stayed in the woods her whole adolescence and had no contact to human means that she sort of got stuck in her pre-adolescence phase, mentally speaking, when it comes to thinking (because I don’t think she ever got to experience things such as debate, emotional relationships, social skills in the human sense, when she was all covered in fur and trotting in the woods).
You can be as human as you want, but if I took you at the age of nine and kept you locked in a room when you can see no one and hear nothing and have no human contact at all, the developing of your brain would get stagnant, because you can’t learn anything from anybody anymore. There wouldn’t be any kind of transmission of knowledge and stuff like that.
So yeah, stop saying that this is just hate and it’s bullshit and people just don’t like Malia and want to be mean about it.
It’s true, okay? It’s inherent to human nature, in order to be and grow as human beings, we need to learn from others, to be part of a human society. If you can’t learn from other humans, your brain won’t be able to develop. If you are taken away from society for too long, especially before your brain has reached an adult state of development, there will be consequences on your ability to learn stuff like social skills or even language.
I don’t care that Malia is a werewolf, this is just common sense. There is fondamental stuff you just can’t learn on your own.
I couldn’t find some of my articles from my sociology syllabus, but I would advise everyone to read this Wikipedia article about Victor of Aveyron and other feral children. Of course, this is still controversial, since most studies were done back when psychology wasn’t as developed as now, but that should give you a good idea of things.
Whoever came up with this week’s TW episode’s storyline, if this is how you decided to close what I call “Stiles’ epic quest towards sex”, I will hate you forever more.
Stiles’ virginity is a huge deal when it comes to TW, it’s always mentioned, there are so many funny scenes and epic lines about that, and Stiles isn’t supposed to finally achieve losing his virginity to some stranger in shady circumstances. Pointless unprotected sexisn’t supposed to be it.
Stiles is supposed to lose his virginity in some epic manner, he’s supposed to be all awkward and clumsy and sweet, like he’d fall off the bed while trying to get out of his clothes, and he’d knocked his head against his partner’s while getting back up, nearly breaking their nose, and he would make loads of inappropriate jokes to try and lift the mood, and he’d like a full debriefing of the performance aferwards and some tickling/cuddling.
So it’d better turn out the whole Malia thing was an hallucination, and the nogitsune planted this inside his head while Stiles was sedated so Stiles would think he was actually bonding with Malia and she was important to her and worth saving and giving up his control. Because if the nogitsune doesn’t wake up in his cell and deep down, whatever of what is left of Stiles is going to realise he never even left the room and it was all a trick again, because I am going to be angry if it turns out he really had sex or even made out with Malia.
Because sorry, but it doesn’t seem like Malia is even a bit worried about him when she gets out of the nut house with her bright eyes, her soft smile and her hair looking like she’s in a fucking L’Oréal ad. So either that’s because the whole basement scene never actually happened outside Stiles’ head and she just thinks she did her part while giving Stiles the keys and she’s now getting what she wants from Scott to turn back into a werecoyote, either that’s because she’s some kind of bad villain, and nice Stiles (okay, not so nice atm, but still) doesn’t deserve a heartbreak.
Basically, please, no, let it be an hallucination. Please, please, please. Let it be a trick or a trap and Stiles’ gonna realise.
Is someone else really upset about Stiles losing his virginity to Malia?
I mean, I get that Stiles is just horny as fuck and it’s not the first time he makes stupid decisions about his sex life just to lose his virginity (remember that girl back at the beginning of the season, they almost slept together at the party before she got taken to be sacrificed - but I mean, at least, Stiles sorta knew the girl), and he probably did not feel like dying a virigin and he needed comfort and he didn’t have much time to enjoy life because of the nogitsune thing and whatnot, but WHY Malia, the girl who’s been around like half an episode?
Anyone else would have been a better choice (and yeah, I mean not just Lydia or Derek for the shippers out there, or even Scott, but people like DEATON would’ve been a better choice).
And, I don’t know, Stiles’ virginity was always a matter of state throughout the series, it was the big comic relief and stuff and… well, his losing it should have been something MEMORABLE.
But no, it was Malia, the character no one really cares about, ten minutes after they basically met.
The writers really fucked that one up.
Plus Daddy Peter’s definitely going to kill him when he finds out.
A headache so strong you can sense Lord Voldemort.
