oh wow this sounds INCREDIBLE, especially re: scott flourishing in alphatude and those two being so happy together, YES. you would rock it so well!! <3
idk from other talks i’ve had i’ve come to feel like a lot of derek’s failwolfing as an alpha comes from his being a werewolf from birth and having been raised among werewolves and therefore being utterly unable to comprehend where scott and his betas are coming from, especially that for people who were born and raised human, the kind of violence that derek uses to communicate on the daily is. um. terrifying. even when they know ~intellectually that their bodies are now near-indestructible. (also like i don’t care if my body will heal from just about anything, I STILL DON’T WANT YOU TO BREAK MY ARM, DEREK, i don’t learn well when i’m being terrorized)
she said, blowing the smoke from the hellfire of her soul out of her nose
er. so what i am saying basically is that i love scott’s gentleness and his desire not to hurt people and his wish to avoid killing people (even when they are VERY VERY BAD people) at all costs. i don’t think his kindness and protectiveness and capacity for love are weaknesses, and so much of fandom seems to think they are, and that derek’s ~tough love~ coupled with stiles’ ostensible ~know-how~ is what will make a pack strong
but i would much rather scott as a bb alpha with stiles as his second, trying to figure out what the hell is going on and fucking up lots and giving boyd and erica sanctuary and feeding them and their families (stiles is great at savory stuff but burns everything he has ever tried to bake – there are still scorch marks on the mccalls’ kitchen wall; scott thinks ~regular cooking~ is boring but asks for dessert cookbooks for his birthday)
and idk keeping themselves and their pack-family safe??? i don’t think gratuitous violence actually has to be part of being a werewolf. my current theory is that most of the murderous tendencies on and around the full moon have more to do with fear and anger and helplessness against the pull of the moon than with any werewolf ~instincts~, which is why finding an anchor, something that makes you feel calm and/or happy and/or in control, works. i don’t love the ~it reminds us that we’re human~ explanation, because i don’t actually like that kind of division between wolf and human being.
THIS HAS BEEN A LOT OF TALKING
thank you for your patience lol
