With the “Scott doesn’t remember Stiles” thing, is it going to be like Scott’s a slightly different person, because he doesn’t remember growing up with someone constantly in his corner, because he doesn’t remember the little voice that says the negative things he’s aware of but doesn’t want to put into words himself, who allows him the space to be the one who dwells on the positive, on optimism. He’s a touch more jaded because he never had that balance. He’s less confident because he’s never had that presence by his side, the person who believes in him unquestioningly. He grew up at best as a nobody, at worst as a target of bullying, and had no one to commiserate with. no one to share the burden, no one to say “you still got me”. He’s more distant, pragmatic, hardened.
Or is it going to be more like Scott has and does all of these little things he has no excuse for. He’ll buy flavors of chips he’s never liked, fondly hum songs he’s always hated. He’ll take pictures of Star Wars merchandise even though he’s never seen any of the films. He’ll glance at the spare helmet he has that doesn’t fit any other members of his pack. He’ll find a t-shirt at the bottom of his drawer that’s too long and color faded, but his stomach will swoop at the idea of throwing it out. He’ll say the first part of a phrase and be confused when no one finishes the thought for him. He’ll try to give someone a high five and won’t get why they don’t follow through.
It it going to be like the space never existed, or like the space is constantly there?
