the shiny red button

another day, another vaguedrabble of senseless allergy torture (sort of a “companion piece” to this scenario)


as the day progresses he comes to think of his nose as one of those self-destruct buttons in cartoons; protruding, shiny, alarmingly red, a disaster waiting to happen, an explosion ready to go off at the lightest touch of a finger

he mustn’t rub. he mustn’t sneeze. and above all, he mustn’t think about how badly he needs to do both of those things. repeatedly. furiously -


no. absolutely not. not going to happen. he digs his fingernails into his palm, presses his tongue to the roof of his mouth. sniffles, just once, but as sharply as he can possibly manage. anything to stop the runaway hitching in its tracks.

later, he pleads with his overzealous immune system. afterwards. once I’ve finished with this and we’re out of here, I’m fully prepared to face the consequences. but not. now.   


god, but he is just so itchy. so unbearably impossibly itchy. from the inner rims of his nostrils all the way to the far back of his sinuses, every nerve seems to be writhing in agony. it’s like he can feel each individual pollen grain lodged in there, like a myriad of stabbing pinpricks.

another sniffle, another noseful of pollen. fuck, he hates spring. hates it with every histamine-laden fiber of his being. the next person who stops by his desk to ask him if he’s okay will get a stapler hurled at their head.

there’s nothing for it. he’s going to have to blow his nose, or else he’ll start dripping all over his keyboard. tenting a tissue over his throbbing nose, he tries to blow as gently as possible, but the slight pressure shift inside his head is still enough to send a veritable shock wave of tickles through his nasal passages and, just like that, he is done. self-destruct sequence activated. 9, 8, 7…  


…6, 5, 4…

hihHH -!”

…3, 2, 1 -

-hd’ISCHhh! -ht’DSCHih! -h’dtTISHh!

“Hey man, are you okay?”

About Sniper’s Vest

Sooo, I noticed everybody and their mom seem to have fallen in love with my cosplay vest for Sniper (and I don’t blame you, it’s the best one I’ve ever seen as well). Anyway, I decided to share a little something about it. Here goes!

First of all - yes, it’s made by myself (and my mom) entirely from scratch.

Materials used:

- fake leather (basic brown & very dark brown)

- second-hand, jeans-textured, a bit stretchy pants I cut in stripes for the trimming

- cheapest shiny red lining

- the buttons I had made by a leather workshop dude. It’s cheap.

Almost every Sniper’s vest I’ve seen so far was made out of linen… and didn’t look too well, because this material is too thin and cheap, and come on, Sniper may have like one set of clothes, but at least this one is sturdy and well-made enough to last him for years. Besides, I bet that 75% of all his posessions are made out of leather.

Anyway - faux leather looks nice, is thick enough to fold just right but also not too much, being relatively light and making sewing easy.


The pattern I made using my dad’s old vest as a template, only slimming it down at the sides. Keep in mind that I’m rather on the tall & thin side, so the measurements here are suited for this body type.

All the pieces cut and in the process of being sewn together. I modified the back a bit, sewing it from two pieces because it gave me this nice vertical line along the spine which made the vest slimmer, more dynamic and more realistic.

This isn’t a tutorial or step-by-step, just some useful info I decided was worth sharing. So I won’t be getting to much into detail, sorry. 

For the trim choose something rather thick and stretchy, otherwise it will all wrinkle and look awful. I used old jeans-textured grayish pants which worked perfectly (it still was a bitch to sew, seriously, trimming is the WORST).

On the side note - yes, the bullets are made out of marker cases, chopsticks and little pieces of pvc, hot glued together and smoothed with sculpting mass.

The collar is NOT a rectangle! Look up a tutorial on how to make a stand-up collar and make your pattern according to it. A rectangle will look bad and just flop down.

The pockets are of course functional (after all these years of female pants I can’t look at false pockets) and here’s how the rough pattern looked like. Be smarter than me and make the sides bigger. 

Ammo pouch is basically two rectangles sewn together in a weird way.

The whole vest is also lined, because lining makes everything 100% more expensive, comfortable and pretty. 

And the last thing - always weather your stuff even if it’s not a prop. Here’s a little close-up - you can see I painted the corners dark, to make the vest look more 3D, used up and authentic (plus a bonus side view).

And that would be all I guess. If you have any further questions about the vest or any other piece of this cosplay (clothes, props whatevs) just message me and I will answer… eventually. May take some time.


Requested by telekinetic-geek

In your defense, you had been itching to put that coat on since the Doctor started wearing it. And it was given to him by Janis Joplin, for goodness sakes! At least, that’s what he kept saying. Whether it was true or not… well, you wanted to put it on. Janis Joplin and Time Lord fashion aside, you sort of had a tiny fantasy about wearing his clothes. You hadn’t realized until he had to let you wear his tie, but ever since then, the coat had been on your list of potential victims.

Now, you were alone in the TARDIS, and that coat was folded up and lying on the console, all innocent and unguarded. Some part of you reasoned that he might not appreciate you touching it. It was his personal property, it was his trademark, it was his pride- 

It was his fault that he had left it unattended.

You slipped the coat on and immediately realized that the Doctor didn’t just wear this as a fashion statement. It was comfortable. Oh, he was gonna pitch a fit when he next regenerated and stopped being able to wear it.

“‘Ello, I’m the Doctah!” you said to the empty TARDIS, brandishing an invisible sonic. You imagined yourself as the Doctor (shirt too tight, shoes don’t match suit, constant management of the hair). "How many random things can I babble about today? Ooh, who knows, but look, a shiny thing! And a big red button that must never, ever be pressed? What shall I do? Press it, of course! But first, I’m gonna lick it, because I have to lick everything, and I’m gonna be completely oblivious to the fact that licking everything is slightly disgusting and slightly sexy in a weird, weird way… ooh, I’m gonna use my sonic which works on everything except for wood even though it’s a super-advanced piece of machinery, and watch me flirt my way across the galaxy with my blue box- AGH!“

The Doctor stood in the doorway, looking slightly… startled, by what he was seeing. But before you had the chance to make an excuse, he laughed.

"I that what I’m like?” he asked, chuckling as he walked to you.

You smiled, torn between letting yourself be embarrassed and fighting the embarrassment with devil-may-care attitude. For the sake of saving face with the Doctor, you chose to stand somewhere in between. “Sort of. I was getting a bit carried away.”

“Eh…” The Doctor did that thing with his lips, that unintentional little duck-lipped pout that he made when he was weighing and measuring a concept. Then he smirked at you with a mischievous glint in his eye. “Well, if I’m anything like that, I must be a rather attractive bloke. Very interesting, very likable.”

It occurred to you that the Doctor might have heard the bit about the sexy licking, but you decided to play it safe and not mention it unless he brought it up first.

“In fact,” the Doctor continued, all bravado, “I must be the most brilliant, handsome man in all time and space, if that is what you think I’m like. And, also, because of this.”

The Doctor held out his hand and there, pinched between his finger and thumb, was a piece of paper. And on that paper was a name that you knew well, along with an address that you didn’t recognize, but- oh. Oh.


“How did you know?” you asked.

“I perused your collection of books and noticed that certain ones, by a certain author, just happened to look as if they had been read more often than the others.” The Doctor flashed you a smile; an I’m-so-clever-aren’t-I-of-course-I-am smile that would get on your nerves if it weren’t so adorable. “And I thought about it and decided… eh, why not make it a trip.”

You gaped at the Doctor. “You’re kidding.”

“Nuh-uh. Not kidding.” He grinned at you. “How’s a visit to your favorite author to make up for me leaving you alone in the TARDIS for so long today?”

“Yes!” you nearly squealed, wrapping your arms around the Doctor’s waist and hugging him tightly. “Thank you, that you so much.”

“Of, course,” the Doctor said, resting his chin on your shoulder. “Just one question first.”


The Doctor’s lips brushed against your ear, pushing his cool breath to tussle your hair and make goosebumps on the back of your neck.

“Is it really sexy when I lick things?”

Whether you would admit to the sexiness of licking or not, the Doctor, of course, had several experiments in mind including an ice cream cone and the patch of skin where your collarbone dipped. But, shh. You can’t know that yet. It’s a surprise.

broken mirrors

when I was little I had a coat that I absolutely adored

bright red and shiny black buttons shaped like roses

when I wore I felt beautiful, gorgeous almost invincible

I loved that coat so much I wore it everywhere

even when the weather started getting warmer

the second winter

the coat felt a little tighter

but I didn’t care because I couldn’t bear living without it

when my mom told me I had to buy another coat I was heartbroken

but after a while I grew to love my new coat, a beautiful shade of blue-green

just like the sea


when I’m with you it’s like we don’t fit anymore

is it possible to outgrow a friend just like a silly coat?

I was asked the other day

“weren’t your close?”

a million memories flashed through my mind

and surprisingly

words couldn’t find they way out from mouth

I was left speechless, with a curious ache growing

screw you

what am I still holding  to?

watch you walk away

what do you want me to say?

you told me we were like two mirrors reflecting each other’s soul

never thought they could be so easily broken

I was too busy handling things that now seem pointless

I did not see how mirrors could turn to shards of glass

we smashed eah other to pieces

words as pointed and bitting as glass can be

you know it’s one thing to have your heart broken by some silly love story, it’s another thing to have your soul shattering from a broken friendship

I crave the sound of your voice, the sound of your laugh

my soul longs for our deep talks

I think people find themselves connected with each other

and their world is turn upside down

and deep down you know it’s not a typical thing

you know this person isn’t your “significant other”, that you’ve heard of in songs and books

I mean it could be your sibling, parent or friend

it could be just anyone you’ve ever interacted with

used to see your thoughts through your eyes

now all I can do is to try to guess the truth through your lies

I loved how we were able to see the world with the same eyes

feel like I’m surrounded by familiar faces

but never had a connection such as ours

we are now strangers with memories

I hate the way we were so close

I hate the way I like you the most

I hate the way our friendship ends

I hate the way that this can’t bend

I hate the way you went about it

I hate the way how you can ignore it

most of all I hate the way you hate me

yes I got anger

but it will not take me down

because I was taught better

some things in our lives are inevitable

you don’t know what I’m capable of

sometimes the only way to deal with pain is to numb it


I was told people come and go

we are now torn apart

our lives have been split, it’s all gone, we both walked on

and I’m convinced there must be something more

never been so sure

find yourself in someone else

when you’re going through emotions

and everything turns to slow motion

wish you could find this someone

who will hold you up when you fall down

What happens when Tony gets extremely bored...
  • Tony: I'm going to do it
  • Bruce: No Tony, don't-
  • Tony: I'm going to press this shiny red button..
  • Steve: Tony, don't-
  • *Finger lowers closer to the button*
  • Tony: It will be fun!
  • Bruce/Steve: TONY NO!!!
  • *Boop*
  • *Massive explosion in the distance*
  • Avengers: Oh for fucks sake Tony, you've fucked everything up again.
  • Tony: *Giggle*

sadistic fantasy of the day:

a character with bad hayfever having an absolutely horrendous allergy day even by their standards, because they somehow managed to run out of prescription meds the night before and now have to rely on over-the-counter stuff that might as well be sugar pills for what difference they make. meanwhile the pollen count is stratospheric, their oblivious co-workers have kept several windows open in the office because the AC isn’t working properly, and to top it all off they can’t go home because they have an important deadline to meet and they’re already behind schedule

biblionerd07  asked:

Steve/Bucky, “This is without a doubt the stupidest plan you’ve ever had. Of course I’m in.”

  • “This is without a doubt the stupidest plan you’ve ever had. Of course I’m in.”

Bucky stares at Steve. “This isn’t a joke?” he asks, looking at the shiny red, white and blue button in his hand. It’s got the shield’s design with it with ‘Steve Rogers for Mayor’ written in blocky, white letters.

Steve shakes his head, slowly. “No,” he says. “It’s not.”

Bucky groans. “Why?” he asks.

“Because,” Steve says, chest puffing out and voice getting deeper, his stage voice. “This city is mismanaged, and people are getting evicted without any help, and–”

“Stop,” Bucky answers. Steve furrows his brows, obviously unamused. “Fine, whatever. I’ll help, do whatever you need.”

Steve’s eyes widen. “Really?” he asks.

“Let’s get this straight,” Bucky says, poking a finger into Steve’s perfect pectoral. “This is without a doubt the stupidest plan you’ve ever had. And I remember the time we went into a Nazi artillery unarmed with only Falsworth for back-up.” Steve rolls his eyes; it was a dumb plan and a miracle that they survived. “But,” Bucky adds, you’re probably qualified, and would be really great at it, and… Of course I’m in.” Steve grins, so Bucky adds, “You idiot,” for good measure.


Six months later, and Bucky is pretty sure that he hasn’t slept a full since the moment Steve told him he was running for office. It’s been a marathon since then: press events, and charity marathons, and shaking hands, and pretending to genuinely care half as much as Steve does.

“It’ll be okay either way,” Steve whispers to him in the back of the crowded room. They’ve rented out a party hall for the results, and invited everyone who worked on the campaign, as well as making it free to any community members who want to come, so the place is absolutely packed with people gobbling down mini corndogs and drinking soda. Steve grabs Bucky’s hand and gives it a squeeze. “Just because I won’t win doesn’t mean–”

“You’ll win,” Bucky says. He’s sure. “You’ll–”

“How do you–”

“I know.” Bucky says, then shuts Steve up by kissing him. Kissing Steve has always been a way to get a moment of peace and quiet, and the kissing is an added bonus.

Steve lingers for a long moment, pulling his lips away but resting his forehead on Bucky’s. “Y’know,” he says. “Thanks. For standing by me through all this.”

“Said ‘til the end of the line, didn’t I? Didn’t think it’d be the voting line, but I guess I should’ve expected it.”

Steve laughs, a small breathy chuckle that makes Bucky shiver. “I wanted to ask you,” Steve begins, “before things get crazy, if you’ll do something else for me.”

“Anything,” Bucky promises, not bothering to mask it behind any sort of lies.

“Marry me?” Steve asks, still close, still breathy, but reaching into his pocket and pressing a ring into Bucky’s hand.

Bucky takes a deep breath, wraps his hand around the ring and holds tight. “Sure,” Bucky says. “I think I could.”

Steve grins as the room erupts into cheers, people screaming about how Steve Rogers is now the Mayor of New York City.

Send me a pairing and a number and I’ll write you a drabble!

headcanon in which enjolras’ red coat is so tattered and worn that it looks really just miserable - because of course he doesn’t have the time to go and buy a new coat - and it gets to the stage where he looks so shabby that montparnasse can’t cope any more and forces him into accepting a replacement from his wardrobe

Date Night Series: Episode Two

Date Night is a series of one shot fanfictions that I’ll be writing about what Harley and the Joker would do on date nights.  

You can find my first installment of Date Night here, I hope you all enjoy episode two!

“What has a girl gotta do ta get a good burger around here?” Harley whined as she strolled down Gotham’s main street.  Harley often played what she liked to call the ‘detective game’.  She would go ‘undercover’, wearing her hair down, minimal makeup, and a very mundane outfit, allowing her to blend in.  She would walk down the street and watch people, try to examine their lives and understand what was bothering them, she was a psychiatrist after all.  The only annoying thing about this game was that she could never play this game with the Joker, he would always stand out, even if he tried to blend in.  He once even tried wearing a mask to blend into the crowd, but people were even more drawn to him.  So Harley usually had to play by herself.  Until recently.  She had discovered a way to add the Joker into her game.  She would plain old Harleen Quinzel, wandering down the street, minding her own business, when the Joker would come in out of nowhere and steal her away in some new and insane way in front of crowds of people, this was much more fun than just playing alone.  

  At this exact moment though, Harley didn’t know if her clown king was going to swoop in at all, she had pestered him about it for days.  She told him how bored she was, waiting for him to work and take care of business transactions, she never got him all to herself, not even for a second.  Harley, I always take you to the club! He had tried to reason with her, but that wasn’t enough.  All that was was a show for the next customer or victim, and as much as Harley loved to get all dressed up and put on a show, that wasn’t what she had meant by date night.  So today, she had just gotten up, huffing and puffing as she passed J’s office, and shouted “I’m going out!” and slammed the door behind her.  Now that she thought about it, it was pretty damn depressing to walk around dressed like Harleen Quinzel, the psychiatrist gone crazy.  The gone crazy part of that title was the part Harley liked.  The rest, well, it was kind of boring.  

  She began to think she would be spending date night alone, ruined once again by business or bats, or whatever Mistah J was up to,  Harley looked ahead of her, all she saw was masses of people, black and grey clothes and umbrellas to shield them from the rain, they moved quickly to keep up with the pace of the bustling city.  “How can you all be so BORING?!” Harley shouted.  Just as the words had fallen off her lips had she noticed that the people weren’t just running to keep up with the rest of the city, they were running from something, and she had been walking towards it.  “Well tonight’s about to get a little more interesting.” Harley whispered to herself as she approached whatever it was everyone was running from.  

  As she got closer, she heard the flapping of a helicopter, but the sound was so close she could tell it was near the ground.  Harley took off in a dead sprint, she just had to know what the commotion was all about.  Soon enough, she figured it out, and she was over the moon.  She finally found it.  What everyone was so afraid of, what everyone was running from.  In the middle of a large and densely populated square in Gotham, sat a helicopter, a large one that was hovering near the ground with a rope dangling from it, the rope was bright red and black, Harley’s favorite colors.  Inside the helicopter, staring down and cackling at the herds of people trying to escape was none other than the Joker himself.  He stood there laughing as well as scanning the crowd, clearly looking for Harley.  He was dressed in silk button down shirt in deep red, with most of its black, shiny buttons undone.  He wore suspenders attached to his pitch black dress pants with expensive black loafers lurking underneath.  When he finally spotted Harley, the entire city of Gotham probably noticed Harley.  “HAAAAAARRRLEY QUUUINN!” he shouted, laughing menacingly.

  “Puddin!” Harley shouted, running towards the helicopter.  She threw her basic black heels off of her feet and pulled two hair ties out of her pocket and began to tie up her hair into two distinct pigtails.  As she got closer to the helicopter, she began to notice more and more details about its appearance.  For instance, she could see that the Joker was standing atop a bearskin rug that had a bucket of ice with grape soda resting on it, two champagne glasses were decoratively placed next to it.  Harley began to giggle and run faster, she knew her Puddin wouldn’t let her down on date night, she just knew it!  And he put so much planning into it, his outfit and the rope were her favorite colors, and the soda, grape was his favorite but because of that it had become her favorite too.  She finally reached the rope, but before she could jump to reach it, Batman swooped in and pulled Harley from the helicopter.  “Hey!” Harley shouted angrily as she kicked and pushed away from him.  “Leave me alone, would ya Bats, we haven’t even done nothin wrong!  And it’s date night!”

  “Harley,” Batsy said to her, still holding tightly onto her so she couldn’t flee, “you haven’t done anything yet, but your date nights never end well for anyone.”

  “Well for your information Batsy, date nights always work out well for Mistah J and I, they’re lots of fun!  Haven’t ya ever been in love?” she said, and she began to stop struggling against Batman’s grip.  She thought of it kind of like one of those finger traps you would find at a toy store, if you pulled too much, it would just squeeze your fingers, but if you loosened up and just kept your fingers calm, the trap would let them free.  The finger trap was Batman, and Harley was the finger, so she remained calm, hoping she could distract him enough to drop her and let her go.  

  “Quinn, enough of your questions, I’m not your patient.  You let me bring you back home or I’ll take you both to Arkham, your choice.”

  Harley gasped with glee, “Can we share a room at Arkham?  Ooh Bats, you should plan our next date night cause that sounds like a hellofa lotta fun!” she began to wriggle around in Batman’s arms, hoping he would drop her so she could go tell the Joker where they were going.  “BABY!” she shouted up to the sky, “how do ya feel about a sleepover at Arkham!  Bats is gonna book us a room!”  Harley could still see the Joker, watching her struggle with Batman, he looked very uncomfortable at the sight of Batman holding onto her like that.  

  “Harls!” he yelled nervously, “how about I take you somewhere even nicer?”

  “Like?” Harley crossed her arms and pouted like a child, she always had so much fun at Arkham.  They could never really contain her, she was too much of a wild child, always trying to escape and mostly ending up successful.  So when the Joker didn’t share in her sentiment, Harley grew upset.  “Ya know, I really like Arkham, I think we have a lotta fun there!  They’re even gonna let us share a room!  Doesn’t that sound romantic, Puddin?” she smiled up at him.

  “I never said-” Batman tried to chime in, but Harley shushed him immediately.

  “Oh Bats, you really still think you can control us?  We’ve been doing whatever the hell we want for years, you’re not about to stop us now, I promise.” she smiled brightly at him, she wished she had been wearing all of her Harley Quinn makeup so that she could’ve made a better impression, or at least freaked him out a bit more.

  “Harley!” the Joker screamed at the top of his lungs, growing ever more irritated as their situation persisted.  “How about I take you to dinner?  Or go to a hotel?  Any one you want, I’ll get rid of all the other guests, you can have anything you want, doll.” a grand smile spread across his face as he saw Harley growing more and more excited, he knew she couldn’t resist him giving her whatever she wanted.

  “Ok!” Harley chirped, then she swiftly pulled her gun from her pocket and fired a shot into Batman’s shoulder, as he went tumbling back, Harley skipped over to the helicopter and hoisted herself up on the rope, as the vehicle began to sail up into the air, Harley made childish faces at Batman and giggled before climbing up to the top of the rope and hopping into the plane with her pudding’.

  At the top of the helicopter, Harley and the Joker could see a defeated Batman, looking up at them in defeat.  The Joker began to laugh that enthralling laugh of his, and Harley was put in a trance.  Hearing him happy like that mad her feel like she was the luckiest girl in the world, to have such an evil king to rule by.  She leaned in and kissed him, their makeup was smeared and distorted by the time Harley pulled away, but she was euphoric.  

  “So where are we gonna go?” Harley sat cross legged on the bearskin rug lying in the center of the helicopter.  “We can’t rob a bank, that’s too last season.  I want to do somethin simple though….ooh I know!  Why don’t ya get us the only reservation to that fancy hotel that just opened up?  I’m thinkin the honeymoon suite.”.  The Joker knew exactly what Harley meant by the only reservation, she didn’t ask for something like that a lot, but the Joker gave it to her whenever she wanted it.  So they flew the helicopter over to the newly opened Chez Gotham, it was gorgeous, and it had to be five stars, it was by far the nicest hotel in all of Gotham.  Once near the entrance, Harley and the Joker dropped out of their helicopter and made their way through the entrance of the hotel.  People began to flee, running all different directions as they saw the two approach.  The Joker was scary enough, but with his girlfriend by his side, he was much scarier.  Why?  Because anything Harley wanted, Harley got, and the Joker would do anything he had to do to get it for her.  So walking into this hotel meant if Harley wanted the place to herself, and you didn’t leave on command, you would be dead.   

  “Puddin….I think I want a party.” Harley huffed, annoyed at all the people running away from her.  People always ran away from her, and never to her, except Mistah J, of course, and Batman but, he just was not her type.  The Joker strolled to the concierge, and ran his hand across the desk, slamming a fist hard on the wood when he reached just below the concierge’s nose.  

  “Lock it up.” he said swiftly and began to walk away.

  “Um…excuse me?” the small, skinny man whispered.

  “Lock.  It.  Up.” the Joker leaned closer and closer with each word, until he was millimeters from the man’s face, then he roughly patted the man’s unfortunate haircut and strolled away to meet Harley.  She had started walking over to an elevator.  The two entered and made their way to the top floor, which took forever because Harley just had to press all of the buttons.  They finally reached the nicest room in the hotel, it had an entire floor to itself, and there was a hallway with windows that looked over the lobby if you drew the curtains.  So Harley danced to these windows, pulling the curtains wide open, then she ran to the phone.  A few moments later, she met the Joker back in front of the windows.

  “So I got a lobster, some steak, french fries, and four ice cream sundaes.” she smiled like an accomplished young child.  The Joker kissed her head and pulled her close.

  “Isn’t it heartwarming?” the Joker asked.

  “What do ya mean Mistah J?”

  “Seeing all of those people, so afraid, terrified of what we’ll do to them.  And we’ll just be up here.” he chuckled and it eventually turned into a full on laugh, a trademark Joker laugh, and this made Harley begin to giggle as well, wishing she had her own signature laugh.  

  “It really does Puddin’.  That’s why I love you, ya know,” Harley whispered, “you tell the best jokes.” 

anonymous asked:

What do you think about "a pretty good pair" being used for Stalia (by Shelley in the interview)? It's clearly a Sterek related phrase. I don't think it was just random wording but was used on purpose. And I also think Shelley was instructed what to say and how to word it. Many already think it's another blow into our shipper faces but that would be way too straightforward for it. What are your thoughts on it, anda? I feel like the truth lies between the lines, you know.

I’ve been reblogging my Sestra @Athenadark’s comments on this, because I think she’s dead on, and I encourage everyone to read them. 

The whole article reads like a manipulation. Things are said very carefully, practically in code. It’s like Dylan saying that Stiles isn’t gay and he likes girls- both true statements if he’s bi, but giving the entirely wrong impression. We’re dealing with very shady ‘letter of the law’ stuff here. 

Add into that Keahnu’s tweet, and I think we are getting our tail yanked. The Sterek fandom is a MASSIVE beast. We out number all the other ships combined, probably 3 times over. We’re huge, and guess what? 

We have HUGE SHINY RED BUTTONS. And Jeff loves to push them. He has explicitly said so. He gets off on it. I kinda feel like we are in some kind of weird D&S relationship with him. 

So yeah, the timing of this, the phrases used “A pretty good pair”, the use of the word 'Mate’ for the first time from the show, the frequent reminders of the scene in Echo House- this is all some major button pushing. Because they wouldn’t be revealing this kind of detail if this was the key plotline of the season- not before a single episode aired.

In 3B both Scott/Kira and Allison/Issac were important plotlines, and while we knew they might be getting together, the show keep the rumors of exactly what would happen pretty quiet, making it more of a 'Will they/Won’t they’ kind of thing. (Yes, we knew they would, but the PR department tried to play coy)

Compare that to Stiles/Malia, which they are shouting from the rooftops, spilling every detail they can. My friends, if you can’t smell a rat here, I don’t know how I can help you. Other than to point out that the only relationship that got this kind of hype in the past was Derek & Jennifer. 

Let THATbe your guide, rather than the PR department’s button pushing.
