after that comes 3x03 ;)

But Sterek could have been so much though? In so much more capable hands than the TW writers? Just imagine?

  • Like, Stiles and Derek did see each over those four months between season 2 and season 3 and that starts a friendship throughout season 3
  • We get Scott finding out they hung out between 2 and 3 and also started to look for Boyd and Erica 
  • Stiles’ friendship with Derek causing him to see that maybe Scott should freakin’ apologize for what he did to Derek in the season 2 finale and him bringing it up to Scott in 3x01 and that issue actually gets addressed and they work it out? With Stiles there or not there when they do, either would have worked.
  • Derek running after Stiles like that deleted scene Hoechlin mentioned, because of course even as friends Stiles would try to annoy Derek, but then we get to see them banter and then get serious and Stiles show his worry for Derek and him warning Derek to be careful and Derek telling Stiles he would try his hardest to stay safe.
  • Derek coming to Stiles after the events of 3x03 and telling Stiles about Cora and Erica and Stiles letting Derek lean on him - figuratively - for support. 
  • Stiles seeing something happening with Derek and Jennifer and showing subtle signs of jealousy but not too overt at this point, because slow burn, peeps, slow burn. Love seeing the build up to things, ya know? 
  • Stiles also being suspicious of Jennifer, as he has been with almost every other villain or major asshole in the series, and trying to warn Derek about her but Derek not listening and Scott wondering to Stiles if he’s just projecting some…jealousy onto this situation? And Stiles being all offended and like NO there is no jealousy pfff what r u talking about Scott, i’m being srs. And meanwhile we, the audience are all like OHHH, they’re totally gonna get Sterek together
  • We actually get that scene where Stiles asks Derek about Paige which we never got (so why did they set it up like there was going to be a scene between them???) 
  • Maybe in that scene Stiles would also mention, oh hey, I figured out a little while ago through my own deductive reasoning and because I’m a smarty pants, that something went on between you and Kate and they talk it out and ohhh that’s why Stiles says “second one you’ve dated by the way” in 3x10, so that’s how he knows. 
  • Also maybe we get that Sterek scene Hoechlin mentioned at Alpha con with Stiles taking his anger and fear out on Derek and Derek letting him?
  • Maybe we get a scene with Stiles being annoyed Derek left in 3x13, maybe griping about it to Scott and Scott being all “mhmm” with a nod and a knowing look at Stiles.
  • Derek coming back in 3B and actually having a scene with Stiles? Yeah? Like them having a convo about how Derek left and Stiles didn’t appreciate that, and maybe he notices something off with Stiles too, notices the dark circles under his eyes, the twitchiness, the fear in his eyes. 
  • We got plenty of Derek worried about Stiles in 3B, but maybe we also get a scene with Derek and the Nogitsune and it taunts Derek and teases about how fond Stiles is of Derek and hints there may be feelings but we can’t go there yettt, too soon, of course!
  • Stiles and Derek have actual scenes in season 4 and they continue to grow closer and maybe they have a few talks about how Stiles is doing post-Nogitsune and Derek tries to help Stiles with his trauma, maybe? And Derek confides in Stiles about how scared he is about becoming human. 
  • Stiles and Derek hanging around each other so much that Malia and Braeden notice something there. They can’t quite put there finger on it, but they notice something. 
  • Stiles and Malia break up in season 4 and stay broken up?? Because really their relationship makes no sense??
  • Derek and Braeden are treated as something fun and nice but nothing that serious because that is how whatever they had seemed.
  • Stiles and Derek share a look too in 4x12 before Derek leaves, because they’re pretty damn close at this point?? 
  • So we get in season 5 how much Stiles and Derek have stayed in touch a lot and we get Stiles mentioning Derek a lot. 
  • Hoechlin comes back in season 6 because they say they’re actually going to go the Sterek route and he’s on board with it
  • And in season 6 when Derek comes back and when they see each other they hug each other tight and they have smiles on their faces and they don’t let go for a long time.
  • And Derek tries to help fix Scott and Stiles’ cracked friendship, that crumbled in season 5, and they’ve been making strides toward getting their great friendship back but it’s still awkward and stilted at times but Derek helps them become besties again?
  • Stiles and Derek get all the more closer, and okay they’ve got this slow burn thing down pat, and Stiles and Derek blatantly stare at each other now and they’re barely able to look away and they get so obviously jealous of others.
  • We’re nearing the end of season 6, now, okay, and say TW is getting a season 7, mmkay? So, we get to the end of season 6, and Stiles and Derek finally have the BIG kiss scene. That scene. And they’re fighting about something and then they just meet in the middle and the kiss is crazy, wild, passionate, shocking them both and that is the scene.
  • OR they’re laughing about something as they hang out during a break from all the shit going down in Beacon Hills and they’re close to each other and they slowly lean in, the music is swelling, and their first kiss is sweet, soft, and deep, and okay guys, we got here. Sterek is finally fucking canon. 
  • And in the last season, lets say, during all the supernatural craziness, Stiles and Derek try to navigate the start of a relationship and we get make out sessions, dates at Derek’s loft, kinda like Scira in that season 4 ep but totes different because it’s Sterek. 
  • And near the end of the season they finally have sex and it’s beautiful and awesome and we’re all squealing at our televisions sets and Sterek is SO CANON and we’re all dead from Sterek overload.
  • And then the series ends before them as a couple could be screwed up and angst could happen and we all go on to write fanfic about the angst ‘cause that would be our jobs and
  • Stiles and Derek holding hands when the pack has to meet to talk supernatural shit out. They lean against each other. They tell Stiles’ dad they’re boyfriends, the Sheriff hugs them. 
  • One ep has Derek reading on Stiles’ bed while he’s at his board thinking thinky thoughts, and they banter at each other before Stiles leans over Derek, takes the book from Derek’s hands, tosses it off the bed, and kisses Derek sweetly on the mouth. 
  • And they’re just like…together and in love and it took a long time for them to get there but they got there, and their journey to getting together was done well and they still have their fights in eps but they work at it, they talk it out.
  • And at the end of the series when everything is well and good in Beacon Hills and they can all finally fucking relax, Stiles, Scott and co. graduate in the last ep
  • And there Derek is in the crowd, standing next to the Sheriff, clapping as Stiles walks across the stage and receives his diploma
  • And it all ends fucking happily
  • With Sterek together
  • And like, I’m not saying I need Sterek to be canon, ‘cause I don’t
  • But I gotta say, canon Sterek could have been amazing, ya know?
