Do you have any theories of why Coach had drinking problems and what or who helped him with it?
Not really. Nothing solid at least. However I do find it peculiar that most of the non-supernatural male adults seem to have abused alcohol in the past. Sheriff Stilinski, Agent McCall, Coach Finstock and Adrian Harris. I hesitate to label them all alcoholics. I don’t think we have enough evidence to give all of them that diagnosis.
But it’s a pattern, and we know how much Jeff likes his patterns after all. And if one’s an incident, two’s a coincident and three’s a pattern, then what’s four?
Just for kicks let’s run through them. I do like to ramble on about these kinds of things :)
I don’t think sheriff Stilinski qualifies as an alcoholic. But he clearly has gone through a period in his life when he drank more than he should. Probably it’s in relation to Claudia’s illness and death.
We have the moment in 2x09 Party Guessed where Stiles, high on Lydia’s wolfsbane punch hallucinates his dad crashing the party, bottle of whiskey in hand and accusations raining over him.
Sheriff: Why am I wearing black? What are you, an idiot? I just came from a funeral. You know, people wear black at funerals. Kid: Dude, chill. It was just Sheriff: Get out of my face. It’s you. It’s all you. You know, every day I saw her lying that hospital slowly dying - I thought, “how the hell am I supposed to raise this stupid kid on my own? This hyperactive little b*st*rd who keeps ruining my life?” It’s all you. It’s you, Stiles. You killed your mother. You hear me? You killed her. And now you’re killing me.
The wolfsbane gave them all visions of things that scared them, that they feared. I think this particular hallucination came to stiles not because it really happened, but because this is what he fears his dad believes. That his dad blames him somehow for his mom’s death. That he’s a handful that he doesn’t know what to do about.
Remember the sheriff had just lost his job because of Stiles and his shenanigans, so he already feels rotten about it. And the time after his mom’s death was probably traumatizing in itself, and if the sheriff sought comfort in some alcohol, he might just had said some stuff that he didn’t really mean. Or perhaps he meant it, but didn’t mean for Stiles to hear. I’m a mom - sometimes when my kids misbehave i think awful thoughts and mean it in the moment, but I keep it inside.
Stiles fears abandonment more than anything. He’s terrified of loosing his dad. Both literally and figuratively. This is his worst fear. This is his Boggart.
Back to the point. If the Sheriff really was an alcoholic I don’t think for a second Stiles would get him deliberately drunk. And another point to think about in relation to the hallucination - in it the sheriff is portrayed as an angry drunk. In 1x10 we see that he’s actually a calm and morose drunk. he gets sentimental and opens up about feelings they normally don’t talk about - particularly Claudia.
In 3x11 we get this exchange between Agent McCall and Stiles
Agent Mccall: Where’s your dad, and why’s no one been able to contact him? Stiles: I don’t know. I haven’t seen him in hours. Agent Mccall: Is he drinking again? [Sighs] Stiles: What do you mean, again? He never had to stop. Agent Mccall: But he did have to slow down. Is he drinking like he used to? Stiles: All right, how about this? Next time I see him, I’ll give him a field sobriety test, okay? We’ll do the alphabet, start with “F,” end with “U.”
Another hint towards a past with too much drinking but not actual alcoholism. Stiles’ “he never had to stop” indicates this.
In conclusion - Sheriff Stilinski’s unhealthy drinking in the past is most likely connected to Claudia’s death and he pulled himself out of it after a while.
I can see that this will be a long one. Hit the read more for more about drinking problems. patterns, what they might have in common and it all ends up in lots of military conspiracy theories. You’ve been warned…
The Princess Agents - so so odds. Nobody in it is high profile enough for dramafever (sorry, LGX!) and it doesn’t seem xianxia and/or romance which is the it genre right now. But maybe Viki? Because I want to see tough heroine to take evil dudes on assisted by her scrumptious love interest. ETA: swordsandparasols informed me that the female lead of this is super duper famous actually so maybe yay subs?.
As Flowers Fade and Fly Across the Sky - hoping for subs because It looks expensive and romantic and I am a sucker for Peter Ho.
Love Lost In Times - hoping for subs and I think has the best chance of the bunch to get them. Liu Shi Shi and Willam Chan both have a bunch of fans and the genre seems in keeping with the ice fantasy/eternal love/supernatural fantasy based on novel thing going right now.
The King’s Woman - not bloody likely to get subs I think. Dilraba Dilmurrat playing the true love of founder of Qin Dynasty in prequel to Legend of Qin is gonna make me gnash my teeth at no subs
The Braveness of the Ming - looks so pretty and I find the Ming dynasty interesting but as for expecting subs - hahahaha! I don’t see The Glory of Tang Dynasty subbed, do you?
Once Promised - hoping for subs. For the same reasons as Love Lost In Times. But it’s Huang Xiaoming in a period fantasy love story (aka exactly how I got into cdramas in the first place), so I just might watch raw if no subs forthcoming.
Ruyi Love In the Palace - hoping for subs. Big name cast (Walllllllllace Huo!) and budget after all. I am a big fan of the Qing setting.
The Qin Empire 3 - because I love hardcore period dramas about politics and war. But it’s not getting subbed any more than 1 and 2 were.
Oh My General - look like gender reversal period hijinks. Unlikely to be subbed but I live in hope.
The Fated General - looks pretty and I like the cast. Same think I’d say about Zhong Ge - chance of subs moderate for both I think but who knows .
Okay but an X files AU! forgive my thirty second photoshop job, but…
Picture it: Jim, leading profiler and adamant believer in
the extraterrestrial, Bones the MD who has to do gross alien autopsies, and
Spock who takes the front line against the shadiest figures in the government.
It’s kind of perfect, isn’t it?
Because of his eccentricity, Jim Kirk’s office is ground
floor 231a, that is to say, the file cabinet. His partner, Special Agent
Leonard McCoy, MD, was assigned to him two months ago. He wasn’t particularly surprised
after that stint with the board of Directors that the AD asshole would assign
him a spy. He knows that Bones isn’t sending in reports of the things that can’t
be explained, though. He takes that as a sign of loyalty. Meanwhile AD Spock begins to
realize that his odd duck agents might be on to something. He can’t choose
between his job and his loyalties, but he’ll do anything in his power to help
The house is for sale. You’ve been watching it for a while, but it hasn’t sold yet. The price is high, given the location, but it’s a great house from the outside. One day, you see a sign for an open house. You go inside. The house is even better than you imagined, but the real estate agent is a little odd. He directs you toward a hatch in the floor that leads to the basement.

I know there have been some metas floating around about why Jemma might react poorly to Skye’s new powers. Of course, I’m still waiting for the show to give answers, but I have another theory.
Jemma is mad at Skye and Coulson. The two of them have hidden everything related to the GH 325 from Jemma from the start - from Coulson preventing her from doing more research on it, to hiding the nature of Coulson’s condition. Jemma might feel that if they had been more open about the whole situation, if they had come to her and the team, then Trip might not have gone in after Skye. He might have known that she could survive whatever the Kree had in store, because Skye had some of their DNA.
Obviously, Skye did try to warn the team, but that was when they couldn’t be reached, and afterwards she was kidnapped. But Jemma doesn’t know this. Jemma just knows that Skye and Coulson continuously kept secrets from her with regards to the true nature of this whole thing, even though she was probably best equipped to help them with it, and now Trip is dead and they are alive.
This would not be a rational reaction, of course. Jemma wouldn’t want Skye or Coulson dead. And obviously she loves them dearly. But they lied to her, and now as a result of their lies Trip is dead and Skye is changed forever. Her grief about both these things (because I’m sure she’s also grieving for the change in Skye) might push the lid off of the boiling pot of resentment that’s been stewing over this issue since mid season 1.
I don’t want Jemma spurning Skye for her powers, that would be out of character, but an angry reaction for their secret-keeping might actually be an interesting, albeit painful, development. Jemma’s been short-changed in the expression of her feelings post-trauma, so I’m hoping that this is a turning point for that. I’m certain too, that if Jemma does lash out, that it won’t be for long, and that she will help Skye through this process as soon as she is able to get her feelings out.
