“anyone who pays more attention to Sterek than the show isn’t watching the show for the right reasons”
TYLER POSEY IS A GODDAMN HERO
things I am upset about in this video: Holland and the interviewer, ffs. jfc seriously: “Are you also becoming a real man?” “Yeah, I’m growing facial hair, yep, yeah, this is covering all facets of LGBT, uhm with transgender Lydia.”
…I don’t know, “upset” might be the wrong word for what I want to say here? But like. The “real man” nonsense, the equation of masculinity and manhood to outside signifiers like facial hair and linking a trans guy being a “real man” to transitioning, and treating the idea of trans guy Lydia as a joke? There’s a bad taste in my mouth here, really. And of course we’re not going to hear anything about this because, judging from the reblogs, people are too busy pouncing on Tyler Posey for saying what he said about Sterek, which leads me to…
Things that I am NOT upset about in this video: Tyler Posey’s comments about Sterek. Like, hey, I feel for the Sterek fandom kind of here just because I’ve been here before with Dean/Castiel in the SPN fandom and I know how much it sucks to have to realize that you’re being queerbaited and played like a fucking fiddle. (Which the Sterek fandom IS, let’s be honest. Like, most of the TEXTUAL, IN SHOW queerbaiting is for Scott/Stiles, Scott/Isaac, Stiles/Danny, Scott/Danny, Allison/Lydia, and bi!Stiles regardless of ship… but in the paratexts surrounding the show, Jeff queerbaits Sterek so hard and I don’t even ship Sterek but it pisses me off on an ideological level because how about fuck you no.)
But I still completely agree with Posey here. Like, him calling Sterek, “bizarre and twisted” is on the ish side because given the context of him following it up by commenting on the people who really only watch the show for Sterek? I’m pretty sure he’s specifically talking about the fans who completely distort canon, if not outright fabricate things that never happened and then pretend that they’re canon, all in the name of their ship. I’m pretty sure the, “bizarre and twisted” thing is meant as, “what show are these people even watching if they think things like, ‘Scott and Stiles hate each other and don’t care about each other at all.’”
But even given the fact that Posey has been really supportive and eager about the idea of Scott being queer in canon, and even though he’s gotten behind Scott/Stiles and Scott/Isaac a few times each, the context of Sterek being a slash ship that does legit mean a lot to various queer fans is important here too. I think that the people in the reblogs who are dancing around calling Posey homophobic are completely fuck off wrong, but I can also get why, regardless of his intention or his what actual meaning was, the whole “bizarre and twisted” comment could be hurtful for some queer fans who love Sterek.
So why do I still completely agree with him, given that? Well, let’s examine the most important part of what he said here: “anyone who pays more attention to Sterek than the show isn’t watching the show for the right reasons” MORE ATTENTION TO STEREK THAN THE SHOW. THAT IS THE OPERATIVE CLAUSE HERE.
let’s be clear on what this means: TYLER POSEY IS NOT SLAMMING ANYONE WHO SHIPS STEREK PERIOD. HE IS SLAMMING THE SPECIFIC STEREK FANS WHO TURN EVERY SINGLE SCENE INTO STEREK AT THE EXPENSE OF ALL THE OTHER CHARACTERS.
In this interview, Tyler Posey is slamming the Sterek fans who took the big Skittles scene in Motel California and turned it into gifsets about Sterek losing a shipping poll to Dean/Castiel. He is slamming the Sterek fans who took the “fronto-temporal dementia” “if you have it, we’ll do something. I’ll do something” Skittles scene from “Riddled” and made gifsets wholesale putting Derek into Scott’s place and putting Scott’s lines into Derek’s mouth. He is slamming the fans who took Derek’s, “Are you willing to die for him?” line about SCOTT and turned it into Sterek.
He is slamming the Sterek fans who reblog Danny/Ethan gifsets with tags like, “UGH THAT’S NOT THE REUNION SCENE WE WANTED JEFF” and who try to prove why Danny/Ethan is a stepping stone to canon Sterek. He is slamming the fans who try to prove why ships like Derek/Jennifer and Stiles/Lydia and Cora/Stiles are stepping stones to canon Sterek and proof that Sterek is real when, according to the text, it’s not. He is slamming the fans who write Cora off as “basically a female version of Derek” and who write Kira off as “just a female Stiles” and who write Lydia off as “just a phase Stiles was going through” and who write Scott off as a bad friend and more abusive and evil than Peter, Kate, Deucalion, and Jennifer combined. He is slamming the Sterek fans who gleefully trend twitter hashtags like #KillDanny and #DieAllisonDie.
IF NONE OF THESE THINGS APPLY TO YOU AS A STEREK SHIPPER THEN TYLER POSEY IS NOT SLAMMING YOU. HE IS SLAMMING THE JACKASSES IN YOUR CORNER OF THE FANDOM WHO GIVE YOU ALL A BAD NAME AMONG THE REST OF US AND THE CAST. HE IS CRITICIZING PEOPLE WHO DESERVE TO BE CRITICIZED BECAUSE THE WAY THAT THEY TREAT PEOPLE IS REALLY SHITTY AND GROSS, AND YOU KNOW WHAT? GIVEN HOW THEY’VE TREATED HIM SINCE SEASON FREAKING ONE? HE IS MORE THAN RIGHT AND ENTITLED TO DO THAT.
either way… oh my god, Tyler, you beautiful sun-kissed prince. You’ve given me the best birthday present ever.
Teen Wolf a la Frozen
so supernatural’s been renewed for season 10

tODAY I MADE A TWITTER ACCOUNT FOR A BAGEL
BUT I GOT TOO EXCITED AND STARTED FAVORITING ALL THE TWEETS CONTAINING THE WORLD “BAGEL” SO TWITTER SUSPENDED ME AND I DIDN’T KNOW WHAT TO DO SO I SENT THEM THIS EMAIL
AND THEY FUCKING UNSUSPENDED ME
there’s going to be a death on teen wolf
it’s going to be a main character
"the biggest death yet"
"It’s called frontotemporal dementia. Areas of your brain begin to shrink. It’s what my mother had."
So, upon re-watching Riddled, I couldn’t help but notice the hints that there’s more than one Nogitsune in Beacon Hills. And after re-watching 3b, I came to the conclusion that if there is, it’s definitely in Allison…
- This theory is built on the foundations on the use of the word ‘we’ by the Nogitsune in Stiles’s head. ”We’re trying to save you, Stiles” is a quote directed at Stiles himself, so he couldn’t be a part of the ‘we’ the Nogitsune used. This may be hinting that the Nogitsune might not have come alone, and if so, where’s the other one? My guess is Allison, because I have found significant evidence to support it. Hit the jump for more…
