A Teen Wolf Rant...
…of smaller proportions.
Season 6 has ruined me. Teen Wolf has done a lot to my heart strings,
tugging at them a lot every season. As a younger gay man this show has
done worlds of good for perspective and hopes for the future, and as one with a vivid imagination I’ve been at
the mercy of the show’s barrage of ships. I’ve embraced every one that’s
hit me: Scerek, Scackson, Scanny, Janny, my otp Scisaac, Sciles,
Dethan, Stydia, Jaiden, Sciam, Briam, Sceo, Morey.
It’s endless. It’s
And if that wasn’t overloading enough, two ships sailed into my harbor despite my protests. Thiam should not be a thing—Liam was one of two people Theo worked over more than the rest and Briam is already huge for me. But goddammit 6A happens and bam! there it is. And now, with Jethan, fml. Jackson shouldn’t be into guys, regardless of what the bts comments have said. He was the archetypal asshole jock who, despite not being in love with Lydia, had a deep emotional bond with her (and almost certainly lots of sex). It’s, in my eyes, out of character. Then the 6B trailer arrived and I just had that feeling again, as I did with Brett in 6x13. I knew they were gonna’ shove Jackson and Ethan together and I wasn’t a fan. But holy hell that clip today. One clip and I’m ruined. Just one. Screw everything I just said and what I’d felt. That was everything it should be. They’re hot, cute, nauseating unicorn werewolf boyfriends and I…here it goes…I ship it.
And…sidebar…I get ‘Jethan’ as a name…it’s in line with everything, but I totally dig “Steinmore.” Just sayin.’
