Derpy Adventures: PAX Edition - Re-creating Fan Art!
I believe animal testing is wrong, and that animals shouldn’t suffer for us to further ourselves.
However, I completely support testing being done on the high end criminals, (murderers, rapists, ect). They’ve taken away someone else’s rights. Why should they get any?
THIS EXACTLY. Save the kittens, sacrifice the scum.
holy fucking shit what is wrong with you people
not even getting into the unconstitionalness and just how far over the moral event horizon that is
you do realize they’d just use that as an excuse to start running tests on people of color. Again. you do realize that. the US prison system already fails to meet international human rights standards. once again, what is wrong with you
Oh my god

So much about this scene is open to interpretation. And so much can be denied. Some call it proof of feelings from Derek, which I think is true. Derek trusts Stiles, maybe more than he trusts anyone else in the world. I mean, it would make more sense on the surface, given the interactions he’s had all season, that Derek would go to Scott. But he doesnt. His mind supplies the one person who has had the most in common with his own experiences and who he trusts to figure things out.
Some call it proof of the progression of Derek’s mental deterioration, which I think is also true. I’ve kept saying through 3a that Derek’s behavior had all the hallmarks of serious depression with suicidal ideation. And Depression is an illness that can often manifest alongside, as a part of, or a result of PTSD. They’re heavily comorbid diseases. This break from reality in times of great stress is a terrifying and terrible moment. Derek Hale is faced with his greatest nightmare, his worst enemy, the horror he feels right now, after thinking he could finally move on and let go, could be enough to break him for good.
If Teen Wolf were a better show with more follow through on the trauma they put on their characters, we might find him next season in a completely catatonic state, entirely divorced from reality and living in a dream world. Because Derek Hale has been through hell, he’s kept going and going until he couldn’t breathe, and what he finds at the end of the tunnel isn’t light: it’s being right at the start again, with nothing but hell stretching in front of him. Derek is so so strong, but I doubt even he can stand this.
Derek Hale was shot through the heart and in his last moments, his escape, he found Stiles.
That’s canon. What you make of that is entirely up to you.

What I wanna know is what happened to this mentality? I get not wanting to go there romantically in the plot, okay, I can understand and forgive that. What I can’t understand is now 12 episodes straight with absolutely none of this dynamic. These writers have literally thrown aside one of the biggest assets to this show’s popularity because… . they’re butthurt that people are more into the accidental storyline than the intended one? They’re too stubborn to accept that the fans are in love with something they didn’t come up with?
I just, do they not realize how much they’re screwing themselves over here? Was this whole season just a massive experiment testing whether their ratings can survive without Stiles/Derek interaction? Because if the past couple weeks are any indication, the answer to that is a resounding NO. People are giving up en masse and to be quite honest, I’m actually glad. The show seems to be running on this mentality that the only way fans can assert their voices is by tuning in or not - and for the fans that don’t contribute to the ratings, haha too fucking bad, you don’t matter.
I say this because we’ve made our voices loud here. We’ve made our voices loud on twitter. We’ve taken our anger and frustration to Facebook, which is like sticking your hand into a sewer to most fans that I know, myself included. We’ve commented on all their articles and misc activities. We’ve taken part in more polls than I can even count, we’ve voted till our fingers cramped for AfterElton, Geekiary, E*Online, for TV Guide.
But the only time Teen Wolf really seemed to care what we did or said was when the 3a finale was leaked and suddenly it was all hands on deck to please the fans and make us watch so their ratings didn’t take a hit.
So all of these people giving up watching the show after literally an entire season with zero Stiles/Derek interaction? Fucking awesome. Because that seems to be what they want. They want to see if cutting out one of the most chemistry-filled duos on the show will hurt their ratings? Let’s give them exactly what they’re asking for.
I can’t speak for Crystal’s reasons, though given what I’ve seen I can assume they were thoroughly linked to and justified by her character’s treatment on the show, but losing Allison means losing the Allison/Lydia dynamic and the Allison/Scott dynamic, two of the other very strong chemistries on the show. Tbh I’m am hella curious to see how Teen Wolf manages to stay afloat while tossing away both of those and the Stiles/Derek dynamic.
Does it think it can ride on some imaginary high fueled by cliché and problematic, heteronormative relationships and tired hero plays? Does it think that fans will stay tuned through a cycling of characters that do little more than show that the writers have the mentality of a toddler with a toybox? Does it think getting darker and darker will magically keep the fans interested while important character developments are left unaddressed and deaths get brushed under the rug?
Is that what it is? Does it think the power of the Nemeton will magically keep the show afloat?
I don’t know the answer to those questions, but the way it’s looking, I think Teen Wolf is definitely about to find out.
I just, UGH, I am so frustrated because it is not Jeff’s job to freaking “write to please himself first.” It is his and the other writers’ jobs to keep the fans interested. That is it. It’s their job to make sure we continue to tune in to watch Teen Wolf each week. That’s what they get paid to do. Their show is dependent upon sponsorship money and those sponsorships care about ratings. That’s their end-all-be-all, and yet, here we have a writing team that is intentionally working to alienate and destroy the passion of a huge section of their viewers. Let that sink in for a moment.
If after that moment, you’re as pissed off as I am, let’s talk.
Seriously! She is the only one of the Heroes to Kill an Oni!
She defended the people she loved.
She cleansed her family’s honor by boldly crafting a new code that was based in love and not Hate.
And she made sure that the people who needed to here it, knew she loved them. That’s more of a blessing than you might think, and sadly, I can speak from experience.
Allison became what she’d always wanted to be- a strong, brave hero. And I honor her for that.
