Summary: Stiles recognizes that there are a number of reasons why this is a bad idea.


The one where Stiles manages to somehow imply that he might be dating his exceedingly hot TA for freshman lit, and ends up inviting him home for the holidays (along with his two crazy sisters) and really hopes that Lydia doesn’t find out he was lying and kill him before maybe he can make it so he’s not lying after all…

psa: speaking as someone who’s actually dated a guy with PTSD – hugging them in their sleep when they have nightmares will NOT calm them down. My boyfriend at the time wouldn’t even sleep in the same bed as me because he was worried he’d hurt me in his sleep. Much like a panic attack, severe nightmare victims will not react kindly to physical contact as a method of waking up. If you’re going to give a character PTSD, fine, but please don’t treat it like something that can be cured with the power of love and hugs. Even if they love the person sleeping next to them, they won’t recognize them when they wake up, so having Character A hug Character B to calm them down from a nightmare is really not true. Thanks.
