Cold Water. Part 2.
Summary: Basically, seasons 6 involving the reader, who’ve been in love with Theo since the events of season 5 and who Theo’s been in love with as well.
Ship: Theo Raeken x Reader/Y/N
Little note from the author: My blog doesn’t specialise on imagines at all, but when has it been specialised on anything, am I right? So, I am in love with Theo and I had this idea to just rewrite events of season 6, involving the reader in there and making Theo, Y/N and their relationships the centre of these imagines. Btw, the title is horrible - I know - I’ve always been bad with those things. And, sorry for all the mistakes - English is not my first language. But, I’m trying as hard as I can. And, yeah, there are like lots of references to different stuff - from comics to TV series. So, yeah, sorry, if you won’t understand :(
Part 1: https://flanelfil.tumblr.com/post/157122717927/cold-water-part-1
When we took Theo to Scott’s house and showed everyone our ‘present’, the first thing that happened was Malia. More specifically – Malia, who was beating Theo. She was just punching him in the face and no one stopped her at this point, but when she showed her claws and was preparing to end Theo, me and Scott stopped her. What’s interesting or worrying (I haven’t decided yet), Theo said: ‘It’s ok, you don’t have to stop’, right after Malia showed an attempt to kill him. He told her she doesn’t have to stop. Maybe, hell did change him after all.
While I was thinking about Theo yet again, Scott and Malia argued with Liam and Hayden. Scott and Malia wanted to send Theo back, Liam was one hundred percent sure that we needed him and Hayden obviously agreed with her boyfriend, though promising to send Theo back immediately, if he does anything stupid. Scott was still convinced that we needed to send Theo back right at that moment. On such a low point, when we were so close to actually sending Theo back to hell, I had to say something. And, I did: ‘We need him, Scott’. He gave me a look full of surprise and so did Malia: ‘I thought you would understand us! How can you defend him?’. I took a deep breath: ‘I fully understand you, but I also understand some other things. We all know I have some experience – a lot of it, actually and I know some things. For example, hell changes people a lot. And also, no one wants to come back to hell. Even demons themselves try everything to run away from there as far as they can. Theo knows some things about the Wild Hunt and he also remembers Stiles. And, he doesn’t remember Stiles like you – you just have memories of him. Theo, on the other hand, remembers Stiles as he was – as a human being. It’s important and it can be very helpful. But, if he does something, we won’t just send him back to hell. I will put as many arrows in him as I can, so he will bleed in pain’ – I touched my bow, convincing everyone I was serious – ‘and then we will send him back to hell. Deal?’ Malia and Scott looked at each other and Scott agreed. Malia, on the other hand, didn’t. She was furious and stormed out of the house, saying she has some kind of a better idea. Well, maybe she does – the only thing I cared about at this point was Theo staying in real world – on Earth. I wouldn’t admit it out loud, but to myself I did – I still loved Theo and there was nothing I could do with it.
The decision everyone made, though, was that everywhere we take Theo with us he will be in chains. A weird one, but Scott said it was ‘safer’ that way and while Liam and Hayden agreed with him, I just didn’t have any arguments against it. So, when we were taking Theo on a mission to catch a Ghost Rider, he was in chains too. Liam and Hayden were arguing with him about how good the idea was and while Layden were sure about it, Theo said it was horrible. Then somehow a weird cheesy conversation between Liam and Hayden started and they kissed. ‘Just so you know, I am still here!’ – Theo and I said at the same time. I couldn’t help, but smile. We’ve just said something at the same time, like freaking couples do and by some reason, I felt very satisfied because of that.
When we came to the place, everyone else was already there. Theo was freed from his chains, so he could do his part. Everyone was discussing a plan and everyone’s parts in it. My task was easy – as a human without any special powers rather than perfect archery skills, I was a simple backup.
Later in the evening, the mission started. We heard lightning and immediately understood – they are here. In couple of seconds, the Ghost Rider appeared and Hayden ran into the cage, as it was planned. The Ghost Rider came after her and when she escaped from the cage, Liam closed the first entrance. Scott started to close the second one, but the gates got stuck. The Ghost Rider came up to Scott and I already wanted to run there and help, but Theo took my hand and stopped me. I felt electricity all over my body, even though he quickly let go, running to help Scott. Now, both of them were trying to close the gates. They almost did it, when the Ghost Rider grabbed Theo’s shoulder and tried to pull him into the cage with himself. I couldn’t just stay like that anymore, so I shot an arrow into the Ghost Rider’s arm. He immediately let Theo go and Scott finally closed the gates. I ran up to Theo, helping him to stand up. ‘Are you ok?’, I asked. ‘Yes, I’m fine’ – he stood up – ‘You actually do care about me, don’t you?’ I smirked: ‘Maybe I do, but you’ll never know’. Theo wanted to say something else, but the Ghost Rider, who was now trying to summon the electricity, distracted us. Thankfully, it didn’t work. Our plan did, though. We trapped the Ghost Rider. Now, there was another problem, two of them, actually – the Ghost Rider called for backup and no matter how hard we tried to speak to him, he wouldn’t answer.
It turned out that the only person, who can talk to the Ghost Rider is a Hell Hound. And we happened to have just the right one – someone just had to bring Parrish here. So, Scott called him. When Parrish came and tried to communicate with the Ghost Rider, nothing much happened. The ghost Rider just said: ‘We are the Wild Hunt, we hunt forever. Those, who hunt with us, hunt forever’, every time we asked him something. Then, the Ghost Rider did something with Parrish and he went to his ‘Hell Hound mode’ and tried to help the Ghost Rider to escape. Scott and Liam stopped him and then Theo grabbed him by the shoulder. Perrish (or the Hell Hound, I suppose) didn’t like that, so he burned Theo’s hand and threw him to the ground by some weird force. I ran to help Theo. ‘Hey, how are you?’ – I asked, helping Theo to stand up. ‘I am ok, we just… we just need to put mountain ash there again or he’ll come out’, Theo said, putting mountain ash around the entrance of the cage.
Then, the Ghost Rider smelled something and turned his head right. So did we. And, we saw that teacher that helped us the other day. He looked rather evil though and judging by the look on Theo’s face, he knew him and that guy for sure wasn’t friendly. Theo grabbed my hand and closed me with his back. Hell no – we started this fight together, we’ll continue it together too. I let go of Theo’s hand and grabbed my bow being ready to shoot the arrow in teacher’s direction in any second. But, the guy said: ‘Not so fast’, quickly changed into some kind of werewolf and that’s the last thing I remember. After that – nothing, but blackness. To a certain point, of course.
