74. “It’s been 10 years how do you still look so good?”
High school reunions are suppose to be an event where kids who were awkward in high school get to show off how successful they are. Stiles had spent most of high school looking forward to the fact that he would eventually be successful and he could rub it in everyone’s face.
He had gone off to school in D.C., gotten recruited by the the FBI and the CIA, and eventually joined up with the CIA. He spent the ages of 22 to 26 working undercover ops overseas.
It wasn’t a job he could brag about though. Most of his work was top secret, need to know only.
His dad thought he was working for a bank that had him stationed in England. It was a great job, he loved it even if he did miss his dad.
When he was 27 he was involved in a hostage situation in Tunisia. When he got out the CIA decided that he could stay stateside for awhile. He was excited until he realized that meant he would be able to go to his high school reunion.
“Come on Stiles, you haven’t been home in years,” Scott said, “Not since my wedding.”
“I know buddy,” Stiles said, running a hand over his face as he tried to think of an excuse, “But we have a huge uh, thing at work. I can’t get out of the office.”
“Stiles come on!” Scott whined, “I heard that Derek Hale will be at the reunion.”
“Hard pass,” Stiles said, looking over his shoulder. It was habit at this point, making sure he had every exit covered.
“Don’t you want to meet your goddaughter,” Scott said, pulling out the big guns to get Stiles back to Beacon Hills.
“Fine,” Stiles said after a moment, “I mean I have to clear it with my boss, but yeah fine.”
He could hear the smile in Scott’s voice, “Awesome! I’ll tell your dad.”
So can someone tell me why everyone’s giving RWBY shit? I saw a post complaining that everyone is cis in the show? Chill there are LGBT people in the show but, surprise!, the show’s not actually about romantic relationships all the fucking time. I saw people complaining because of plot holes and I feel the need to point out that every goddamn story has plot holes. People are complaining about how Blake’s arc is filler and Yang’s PTSD vanished but do they realise that not only is time passing between each episodes but the entire thing has been planned out. We saw Yang for about five minutes; we don’t know what’s happening in the rest of her life and there’s been a good amount of time since she put the arm on and way sparring with her dad. Blake has just reunited with her parents oh, and guess what? She needs to spend time with them because she hasn’t seen them in years. People would complain if all of Blake’s arc was put into one episode too.
This fandom needs to take a step back and actually appreciate how much time goes not into animating the series but planning a goddamn story. Do they even realise how hard it is to create a world like Remnant; considering every little thing they have? But people just prefer to complain that there are no gay people in the show or that someone should be agender or trans. Instead of hating on the people who are pouring blood, sweat and tears into this work and really don’t need your goddamn abuse about little things, how about we sit back, chill the fuck out and enjoy something that Monty Oum basically planned by himself to show the world?
Is that too much to ask for?
Like basically what these “gay fetishising” crusaders are saying is that I am not allowed to think a gay couple is adorable and I’m not allowed to enjoy seeing them be cute and intimate with each other because that means I’m fetishising them. How is /THAT/ not offensive???
