jeff davis is not a gift

This season is great and all, but no matter what happens, I will never get over the fact that Jeff has wasted so much potential.

Just to go through a few examples:

He tossed Kira away, a useful and powerful sweetheart who’s story wasn’t over yet…

And gave us an evil piece of trash cannibal teacher who’s only good quality is his looks.

We lost Isaac…

And got Liam…. (I mean no hate against Liam but… seriously?)

The McCall pack is not what it used to be. We had all of these amazing characters…

Plus Allison…

And Derek…

And now three nearly useless freshmen have all of his unnecessary screentime which takes away from the screentime of the people who are actually relevant.

We had two pairings who developed enough for viewers to love…

And that was all snatched away within an episode, and in return, Jeff Davis gave the viewers, well… y’know.

And do not even get me started on the fact that Jeff baited at Scisaac an Sterek for so long…

And instead of getting Scisaac and Sterek, we got Morey. And like okay, they’re kinda cute or whatever, but that’s not what was built up on and that’s not even close to being what viewers wanted.

We asked for the Sheriff and Melissa who could’ve been together since the series fucking started…

And instead we got Claudia, like are you fucking kidding me? (And yes I lowkey ship Melissa and Chris but potential down the drain on the Sheriff and Melissa. They were the pairing that everyone wanted to see together. It’s the last season, why are they not a thing yet?)

I’ll end here, but point is, wasted potential, always. And that’s why I’ll never be 100% satisfied with what Jeff has left to give, because all he does is throw away some of the best development.

This is Jeff Davis, openly gay creator of MTV’s Teen Wolf. Over the course of four seasons, he’s had three recurring gay characters, two of which are no longer on the show. Despite the large desire of the fandom to see more of gay character Danny, Davis wrote him out of the show with no explanation. There have been two lesbian characters, one of which was killed almost immediately after she appeared. The other was retconned into being bisexual for the sole purpose of queerbaiting the show’s most popular character Stiles. Davis hinted at Stiles being bisexual for multiple seasons and then backtracked and said there were no plans to continue exploring that aspect of him any further. Davis’ response to the massively popular Sterek ship was to separate both of the characters involved in the ship, keeping them apart until they can spend one meaningful scene in each finale in a blatant attempt to bait Sterek shippers into watching for another season and giving them one-note girlfriends who solely exist to emphasize their heterosexuality. Despite all of this, Davis constantly demands praise for the LGBT inclusiveness of his show.

This is Peter Nowalk, openly gay creator of ABC’s How To Get Away With Murder. In the show’s first episode we are introduced to openly gay law student Connor Walsh, who is seen having sex not only to acquire evidence, but because he wants to. Connor is even seen rimming his partner before the scene cuts away. Nowalk has confirmed that Connor will have a romantic interest starting in the second episode and said “it was important to me to show a gay person as a full-fledged character” when talking about Connor. In addition to Connor, three of the main characters are women of color. Nowalk has yet to demand praise for the show’s LGBT inclusiveness or its racial representation

I'm a Sterek shipper but I totally respect your opinion. Everyone's entitled to one, at least I think so(some people in the teen wolf fandom are nuts). But I do have to admit, the way Jeff Davis decided to make stiles leave suggestive hints towards being homosexual was pretty mean. He just kind of lead the viewers on and then slapped us in the face which was somewhat rude. I want to know your opinion about this! Do you think it was right for him to do this? Thanks for your time!!!😊

I’ve talked about this before, but yeah it’s something I feel pretty strongly about so I’ll talk more about it. 

Jeff Davis queerbaits like nobody’s business. And like, there’s absolutely no reason to. I don’t understand why he won’t just have Stiles come out and say that he’s bisexual, or talk as casually about having a crush on a guy as he does having crushes on girls. When fucking Caitlin asked Stiles do you like guys, that was the perfect time for Stiles to casually say YES, I like girls and I like guys. Instead, we got nothing. Not a no, not a yes, nothing. Which is bullshit. He claims he’s so progressive by having a poc lead actor, and queer side characters, but he won’t just come out and confirm Stiles as bisexual.

He uses queerbaiting to draw in queer fans and fans that ship queer ships, he talks about Sterek and has the cast talk about it, but he’s never going to do anything about it. It’s gross and I implore fans to not let this slide. Be loud (but not threatening!). Demand on screen confirmation that Stiles is bisexual. This isn’t about Sterek. It’s about representation and being treated with respect.

  • Fandom: Sterek, maybe?
  • Jeff Davis: Oh? You want Sterek? How about if I make a new Hale who is supposed to be a badass and put THEM with Stiles instead? And she's female!
  • Fandom: What?
  • Fandom: Uhm... Stydia then?
  • Jeff Davis: You don't like Stalia yet? Let me just recreate scenes and characteristics from Stydia and use it in Stalia. I'm sure you'll love it now.
  • Fandom: No
  • Fandom: What the fuck
