The summer between semesters is supposed to be long and lazy and fun, but it’s really been anything but, for Stiles. While Scott has been trying to get back to normal, they’ve grown apart, because Stiles really can’t just go back to that. Erica and Boyd are missing, so naturally he takes it upon himself to try and help find them. That’s just who he is. He does research of his own, but knows he can’t do much on his own, so grudgingly, he goes to Derek.
It takes a lot of texts and calls and general pestering before Derek finally gives in and tells him about the alpha pack, after swearing him to secrecy. Which, to be honest, really wasn’t necessary. He won’t tell Scott anything because he’ll just get double the guilt trip for working with Derek behind his back. He already feels guilty for keeping Scott out of the loop, but it’s for the best, especially when Scott is trying to be a normal teenager. Which is what Derek would prefer for Stiles to be doing, as well, but Stiles is definitely not as easily swayed.
With that, he takes up going to Derek’s new loft. While much better than the dilapidated old family home, it’s still barren and devoid of any warmth, which Stiles isn’t used to. But it’s Derek. Even though Stiles only lives with his dad and Scott only lives with his mom, those homes ooze love and family. Derek really lacks that, and the presence of that loss in his home is stifling. It isn’t easy, but he gets somewhat used to it, especially since he and Isaac take up a little undercover project that isn’t so undercover. Here and there they smuggle in splashes of color in the forms of pillows and blankets and pieces of art and lamps that they set up when Derek isn’t looking. When Derek notices them, he sports his signature scowl and shakes his head, but leaves the decorations alone, which just pushes them to keep bringing in more things. Stiles swears he sees Derek smile a little when he plops a tie dye sock monkey on the moth eaten sofa.
This is why tv is shitty and working in tv can be veey shitty for women and just Hollywood in general ugh.
the media likes to soapbox how things are 100% totes equal now. when like approximately 98% of casting directors, producers, directors, executives and leads are white men. a small fraction is women and poc and lbgta+. and rather than increase the percentage of women, poc and lbgta+, the percentage of white men stays the same and the small percentage of women, poc and lgbta+ have to fight for the same small piece of pie. when white men in hollywood have to hand over a small piece of their pie, like a sliver, they are up in arms over how they are being oppressed and harassed and having their rights taken away. when focus groups get made, most are white men. when movies get made, they want to appeal to just white men. why? because 98% of hollywood’s infrastructure is white men. and they can’t understand why anyone would want to see a film or tv show about anyone but them. so hollywood will give you one film with a lead actress. but it will be the only female lead film that will get a ad campaign and a bigger budget for special effects, still their budget will be smaller compared to male lead films. such that if they fail, the hollywood white men will get to prove that they made the right choice not to put money into it. this HAPPENS ALL THE TIME. just look at any fall line up of new shows. which ones have female leads? do they last? if they do, does the story suddenly get a wacky male character? for no reason??? do crappy male lead shows get canceled? yes. but like when ten new fall shows have an attractive white male, if one gets canceled, they won’t stop making them.
I've never heard of Nash Grier before and this hasn't shown up on my dash that I've seen, can I ask what's problematic about him? All I get when I search is links to vines or lists of his best vines.
i don’t want to link to his awful video and hear people defend him so here’s a response video to his bullshit that hits on all of the problems of nash grier and his shitty misogynistic point of view towards women. no amount of cute/neat vines would get me to like him
Also why doesn’t he have keys? Or is it not building maintenance?
There IS no building maintenance my landlord lives in fucking Burlington and so does his brother who organizes the maintenance and they barely talk to each other and the maintenance guy lives in freaking Waterbury I think??? But either way he’s not associated with either one of them, or my building, and he literally told me he could only be reached “between 8 and 9 in the morning” like that’s a reasonable fucking thing to say to somebody I’m SO
My otp: Clint/Coulson! (LOL surprise, eh?). I was always a huge sucker for pairings involving a mentor/boss of some sort with his subordinate/student XD The coolness/brashness contrast in this pairings also makes for an extra aww worthy XD My most hated pairing: Funny thing about Avengers fandom is that there is no real pairing I HATE. I mean, there is pairings I don’t ship, but hate… My unusual otp: Clint/Natasha/Phil. I know it’s not a rare pare by any means, but I don’t have a lot of threesome ships in my list. But Clintasha and Clintcoulson just works so well that I couldn’t resist My crossover otp: No OTPs actually, but I heart any story which links up all of Renner’s recent action roles into one long badass history XD My brotp/friendship otp: Clint/Tony. One of the best fics in the fandom I ever written turned Clint into Tony’s adopted little brother, and the bro dynamics there was so awesome Character headcanon: 1. He loves hiding in the ceilings and rafters and scaring SHIELD employees. He first realised that Coulson is on a whole new level altogether is when he was stalking Coulson… only to have Coulson appear in the Ceiling space BEHIND him and ask him to hurry up with the mission report. A Gif that shows how I feel about the character:
Brenda fucking owns everything, Kyra Sedgwick is brilliant
two minutes in, i was in love (that’s how long it took her to show up so that’s saying something right there) and omg by the end of the episode i was all mama bear and snarling whenever people did her wrong it was beautiful
