the thought about Stiles & Lydia are pack to Peter but Scott isn't, got me this idea: What if betas/omegas flock around a strong and clever beta like Peter, who protect them and supports them. what if this person can become an alpha without the power-change (death of someone) or stuborness (True Alpha), but bc of his followers (like they choose him).
I actually really love this idea, and I think that’s what the True Alpha status should be. I think that if we’d seen something like this happen in the show for Scott to become an Alpha, rather than just that very anticlimactic “ta da!” moment, then a lot of viewers would have been a lot happier.
And yes, I love the idea of it happening for Peter. He becomes an Alpha again not because he’s actively seeking to be one, but because the actions he’s taken to protect his people and his territory have made him one. He has a pack that follows him, and fights for him, and trusts him, and loves him. How is that not being an Alpha in all the ways that count?
And I think it would be fun if Peter’s eyes flash Alpha red one day, and he’s the one who’s most surprised. The rest of the pack are like, “Okay, that makes sense. Carry on.”
