So-confused

Soooo I have a question that I don’t intend to be wanky but maybe it is.

I’ve seen several instances of fan works in the last couple of months which label Derek Hale “the Hero.” I’m wondering why that is. Derek fills multiple narrative roles but the Hero… isn’t one of them. So what fandom phenomena has lots of people who aren’t necessarily trying to erase Scott calling Derek “the Hero”?
