Nothing is as red as the sea that day. I don’t think often on my father’s body strung out through the reddening surf. Instead, I remember him as he was before the race: afraid. I won’t make the same mistake.
AU: Allison has a thing for Stiles from day one. They become friends soon but that’s all he sees in her. One day, Scott asks Stiles to find out if Allison would be up for a date one day, leaving Stiles rather confused about actually feeling somewhat jealous. Allison starts going out with Scott and it becomes harder for Stiles to act like everything’s normal until he finds out that Allison actually liked him the entire time.
I’ve been thinking, and it’s so funny how white people will always be like “oh whoever is the best actor for the role” whenever a white person is cast to play a POC but whenever a POC is cast to play a traditionally white character all of the sudden racial accuracy is the number one concern.
