because it just means so much for dereks character

anonymous asked:

Are there any tropes that you used to love that you now hate? If so, what are they and what made you change your mind about them?

nerd!Derek, definitely.

I mean… I never loved the trope, like actively sought it out, but I would enjoy it from time to time because it was a nice twist on the expected, and also because I do believe Derek’s incredibly smart. But I’ve been slow and steadily turned off the idea over time because… I just feel like the people who write it aren’t actually writing Derek. They’re writing Hoechlin (or, since Supergirl, Clark Kent) with Derek’s name. He ends up so sunshiney and shy and adorkable in ways Derek just… wouldn’t ever be, in my opinion.

And I mean… there are a lot of ways to write “nerd” characters without turning them into blushing innocent balls of sunshine (see: the way people write nerd!Stiles… who is usually pretty much just canon Stiles) but if you see nerd!Derek there’s an almost definite chance that he isn’t going to be Derek to me.

And obviously character interpretations are different and I know a lot of people really enjoy this trope, and that’s fine, but I’ve gotten to the point of kind of flinching away from fics that even give him glasses (especially when he’s still a werewolf because… I’m sorry, but what is the logic there…?) because 90% of the time glasses will mean nerd!Derek, and nerd!Derek means that I’m actually reading what feels like Hoechlin/Stiles fic, not Sterek.

OMG they Derek Haled Superman sooo bad in that finale, lol. I mean I get it, but it p*ssed me off. And no scenes w/Jimmy again? Jimmy was just as Dereked with how much he was sidelined this whole season// It's the same reason the Supes/Jimmy scenes were cut from his first appearance - Hoechs has too much charisma with Mehcad. They pop on the screen. The SG people saw/accepted this and sidelined Supes/Jimmy because they would pull SO MUCH focus from the title character. So, yep, Dereked! ;D

Welp!

Just so everyone gets the whole picture. Full transcript by not-the-alpha

I didn’t get the first part, or what he added at the end about loving working with Dylan and them having scenes together.

Okay, because of the confusion from partial tweets from the Team Wolf con in Paris, this is the exact transcript of Tyler’s answer to the Sterek question. I do have video proof of this moment, which I will post once I’m home.

The girl asking the question had a strong accent and spoke quietly, so at first Tyler didn’t understand the question.

*************

“Do you ship Sterek? It’s Stiles and Derek.”

“Oh, Sterek! Uhm, I will say this, and I mean, I know, I’m glad you guys actually… Because I wanna say, I know that’s like a big, like, a fan fic thing, I know that everybody, kind of, kind of, everybody talks about that.

But for me, personally, just because I have so much respect for Derek as the character and for Stiles as the character that… for me, it’s like, to live in that, or to really think about that… I… just for me, personally, as the actor playing the character… I feel like I would be disrespecting the character, so I don’t really entertain it, or even think about it, just because for me, it’s such a separate thing, it has… it doesn’t really have anything to do with what happens on the show.

So because it doesn’t have anything to do with that… I guess I don’t have any thoughts on it, because, it’s… to me… It’s those characters are their own people… Uhm.. And, so it’s, it’s not a, it’s not disrespect, it’s not anything like that. I understand, I don’t personally understand… It… Completely. Um, I appreciate it. [laughter] You guys do what you wanna do. But to me it’s just like, I see the characters for who they really, actually are in the show, so it’s nothing to do with the work that I do. So that’s the only reason why I don’t really think about it.”

WE SHOULD ALL BE THANKING PETER HALE

*He made Scott a werewolf, henceforth his True Alpha status and the whole show.

*He brought out Lydia’s banshee powers, knowing she was immune.

*He’s the biological father of Malia Tate / Hale, I mean, without him, no Malia.

*Gave Derek his Alpha Status

*His amazing sarcasm through all seasons

So don’t you tell me he was just a villain and was irrelevant to the show because let me tell you something, without him, none of the highlights we have in the show would even be there. Peter Hale is an amazing character so don’t even start to tell me that he is pointless. Thank you very much :)

For teenwolftoday’s prompt: I want a fic where Derek keeps borrowing Stiles’ novels and returning them after a couple days as an excuse to come over and see Stiles. [x]

It starts as an afterthought, really, with Derek lingering in Stiles’ bedroom after stopping by to check on research on the latest supernatural threat. He traces the spine of a worn copy of The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe on Stiles’ cluttered bookshelf, lost in a hazy memory of drinking chocolate with Cora, huddled under blankets while Laura read to them. He never found out how the story ended, with Laura heading off to college and then Cora insisting she was too old for stories.

“Oh, hey, Narnia. One of my old faves. Yours?” Stiles looks up from his research, a smile dancing on his lips.

“Never read it,” Derek grunts. He starts to make for the window to leave, but he’s suddenly blocked by Stiles pressing the book into his hands.

“No way, that is a tragedy, okay? You can borrow mine,” Stiles insists, smiling brightly.

What angers me about this episode is not that Derek is dead (not that that isn’t infuriating), but how his death was/will be handled. 

One, he deserved more. Not a quick episode with him just dying. But also, Derek dying should, in theory, have a massive impact. It is unrealistic to think that Addison and Cristina would not return for his funeral. Cristina now owns a fucking hospital; i think she has enough power to be able to step out for a few days at the least

Two, I feel like him being in DC was Shonda testing the waters to see if the show could survive without him (which granted, it wasn’t awful) but she made the mistake in assuming Derek being in DC and Derek being dead are the same. Him being in DC wasn’t a big deal because he was always still alive. We always knew he’d be back, and yeah he could be an ass but when he and Meredith hashed their shit out and made it work it was awesome. 

This death just feels wrong because it could have been done so much differently. Instead, I think we are going to get some really shitty writing next season before they finally shut down the show. It will be interesting to see how they have his death affect all the other characters and relationships (especially Calzona because Shonda always emphasizes that The Merder journey would parallel theirs). And when I say interesting, I mean torturous because I have a feeling it’s going to lead to some really shitty story lines with fake sentimental love (something along the lines of “See what happened to Meredith and Derek?? I don’t wanna die knowing I could have been with you”)

You know why I love this fandom?

Whoever is gonna die on the actual show the fandom will stick together, we won’t just forget about the character.

The amazing artists of the fandom will still draw them, the amazing writers will still include the character in a lot of their fics and all of us appreciate it so much.

I mean in most fics I read Erica, Boyd and Jackson (and also Cora) are still included.

And it just makes me really happy to know that this is also gonna happen with the person who dies.

Because we won’t stop loving the character(s) who aren’t in the show anymore.

BiteCon panels: The Boss Lacrosse Bros

Bringing over my tweets, with bonus commentary!

*

Saturday: The Boss Lacrosse Bros

Sinqua Walls, Arden Cho, Keahu Kahuanui and Tyler Posey were on this panel. I think most of my tweets were about Keahu – probably because it seemed like most of the questions were for Keahu. 

Some of my tweets posted all in one lump out of order after the panel, because wifi in the ballroom was terrible and I kept getting disconnected from it. I’ve guessed at the proper chronology of these, but some of it might be out of order. 

Arden on Kira’s future career: “professional cosplayer.”

Posey said Scott would be a construction worker. Sinqua said that Boyd would be a matchmaker because (as with most things, paraphrased) Boyd likes it when people find love. I DIED. I forgot to tweet it because I was 100% frozen with Boyd feels. 

Keahu on Danny: “I think he figured it out a long, long time ago and was just like, I’m not touching that.”

To which Posey replied, “BUT YOU DID.”

(This exchange was about Danny and werewolves.)
