I was thinking and idk if this is a new headcanon or if I'm just adopting it but I wanna say that for werewolves (at least born ones) are actually really comfortable in their wolfed out form. Cause like it takes a lot of control to not wolf out but I also feel like for werewolves it's natural to be half-shift bc that's like their ""true form"" so I now imagine Stiles coming over to loft one day and Derek just lounging in half shift and at first Stiles is like "ahhhh is there a badie!??!" ~
~“What happened!!?” And like Derek is all chill and “Stiles calm done. I just felt like it.” And so then Stiles being the curious person he is asks a whole bunch of questions and before they actually talk about their obvious feelings for each other they just kinda cuddle bc Derek is listening to his wolf more and it just feels natural just like being in half-shift.
I love this! We see so much on the show about werewolves being monstrous, as though then man/werewolf thing is a sort of Jekyll and Hyde deal. I wish we’d seen wolfed out weres having fun and being wolfy for wolfinesses sake!
