Send me a ship and I will tell you: (Sleeping!) 

  • Who is a night owl: Stiles, given his anxious and obsessive tendencies 
  • Who is a morning person: Neither? But Stiles is way harder to wake up
  • Are they cuddlers: SO MUCH. Constant cuddling. 
  • Who is the big spoon and who is the little spoon: Scott’s usually the big spoon
  • What is their favourite sleeping position: Spooning or facing each other usually, even if they end up sprawled out when they wake up. But pretty much anything that allows for being close and lots of touching/kissing/nuzzles.
  • Who steals all the blankets: Stiles (Scott’s got all that wolfy-heat, and Stiles runs cold so he deserves more blankets. That’s the excuse he uses anyway.)
  • What they wear to bed: Scott is his usual sleep-pants and no shirt, and Stiles switches between t-shirt and sweatpants and various states of undress depending on how particularly cuddly or sexy he feels @ Scott that night
  • Who likes seeing the other wearing their t-shirt: They both do (even if trading clothes is something they’ve been doing for years) but probably Scott a little more considering the whole wolf thing.
  • Who falls asleep mid-conversation: Stiles, but in the mumbly, trailing off kind of way where he doesn’t realize he’s falling asleep
  • Who wakes up in the middle of the night with nightmares: both of them :( with various behaviors and levels of obvious-ness
  • Who accidentally punched the other in their sleep: Stiles, because flailing in his sleep, oops
  • Who can’t keep their hands to themself: Both of them, in every meaning. Being physical for years beforehand + dating? Casual and not-so-casual constant touching is their thing.

I can’t help but wonder when Stiles started meaning this much to Derek.

I can’t help but wonder when Derek decided that Stiles was good for calming him, a safe place during dark times.

I mean, we all know Stiles and Derek had one of the best developments on the show, and along the way, they developed a great amount of trust in one another, but this… this is something else.

When did Derek’s trust develop into this?

Maybe it had to do with the multiple times Stiles saved him, or the many unspoken agreements they had before going in to do something dangerous… or maybe, it was in the episode where Boyd passed away.

Stiles wasn’t close to Boyd, not as close as everyone else was to him, but somehow, he still understood what it felt like for Derek losing a pack member. Therefore, reaching a hesitant hand out to rest on Derek’s shoulder.

That simple gesture probably meant more to Derek than anyone realized.

Stiles was there trying to comfort him. Stiles cared enough to try and do so.

And maybe he kept Derek from falling apart altogether at that moment.

Maybe that’s when Derek realized that Stiles really was there for him and maybe that’s when the building trust he had for Stiles locked into place.

Maybe that’s when Derek realized that Stiles could be his anchor.

Maybe.

idk if that was already mentioned (probably was, what hasn’t been mentioned at this point?) and i feel stupid for thinking about it only now (almost a year after reading tfc for the first time), but.

let’s talk about Neil’s “You like it. I like it that you like it” (i’m quoting from memory so i might’ve made a mistake) response to Andrew accusing him of having a neck fetish.

bc i think that’s not a neck fetish Neil has - he has kink for making Andrew feel good. he goes for Andrew’s neck not bc of himself but bc of Andrew.

Hands - symbol for anchors

Anchors is an important theme in TW - it’s what helps ground the werewolves and keep them in balance. In the series this is often showcased with hands - hands coming together to form anchors, and hands breaking apart to siginfy the end of it.

This has in all likelihood been pointed out before, but what the heck, let’s do it again cause i needed something to occupy me while waiting for the next episode :)

Image heavy so i’ll hide the rest under a read more….
