someone write me a sterek au where stiles has a blog and he constantly bitches about derek and posts all these instagram pics of the pack and the rare one of derek glaring at the camera and people always assume that 1) stiles is dating scott and 2) stiles hates derek. so when stiles gets anons about derek he’s like “what? WHAT? i don’t hate him what the fuck" 

and he tags all of the pics of derek like #i fucking hate you and your fucking face #worst werewolf or worst werewolf #jesus fucking christ i can’t even believe you’re real most days #how DARE you #seriously??? with the smirk?? and the fucking TEETH?????? #get out #GET OOOOOOUT #oh so you’ll smile at scott what am i ground beef #that would only be acceptable if i were grinding my beef all up on you on a daily basis #i mean what #who said that #not stiles that’s for sure #some days i wish you’d never come back #for the sake of my sanity you could have at least dropped off the leather jacket with the camaro #god #death would be less painful than looking at you

and then one day scott is laughing about how people still won’t believe that he and stiles are not actually dating and derek’s like "what” and scott looks at him all sly because he’s gonna have some fun with this. so scott grins and shows him stiles’ blog.

suffice to say, derek’s very confused.
