Just as a psa; there’s not always going to be positivity on this blog.
I am human. Sometimes I get angry, bitter, frustrated, annoyed. Sometimes I write sour skittles fic and everything is dandy.
I usually use ‘snark for ts’ or ‘wank for ts’ as tags so that people who want to stay out or find it difficult to deal with conflict can block those posts using their service of choice. You are as always free to unfollow, I will understand and there will be no hard feelings.
While I can get angry, I will never ignore or rage on you if you decide to come into my askbox and have an honest discussion with me about issues or if you think I’m overreacting/wrong. I appreciate this and would never abuse the fact that someone’s speaking to me off anon.
End of psa.

This is unacceptable and it will stop right the fuck now. We, as a fandom, have to be able to disagree on things and be able to have discussions, even about difficult and sensitive subjects, without resorting to sending people death threats and encouragement to suicide.
This is some juvenile fucking bullshit and I will not have it.
I will not stand for it.

DID YOU JUST DO THAT? DID YOU JUST HONESTLY DO THAT?
You fucking told someone to kill themselves over a discussion about characters on a TV show?
I can’t fucking believe you people
You are fucking disgusting
People thinking Jeff Davis keeps track of what hand people are touching other people with on the show
and I’m like, oh to be young and naive and not bitter

Here’s the thing that probably bothers me most about the true alpha concept:* If what’s so special about the TA is that they don’t kill, then the powers/status would disappear once the TA has killed.
We know that werewolf society as a whole tends towards violence, and if there exists a werewolf justice system other than claws and teeth (and hunters), we’ve never gotten any hint of its existence. Occam’s razor would tend towards there not being one, since it would be entirely improbable that any functioning system wouldn’t have shown up in Beacon Hills years ago.
With a functioning justice system, you have options for rehabilitation, incarceration, trials, etc. Without one, your choices come down to kill them or let them go and trust they will sin no more. In some cases, where there is remorse/rehabilitation, the latter can work.
Where there is no remorse or even real consequences, what’s to prevent recidivism? Even if Deucalion never sets foot in Beacon Hills again, what’s stopping him from turning a new pack by force and then killing them off? Is a rogue omega that’s been chewing on people up and down the west coast going to stop because Scott gives him a stern talking to? And that’s not even counting hunters like Kate or Gerard or any other supernatural creatures that may show up.
We know that the werewolf magic doesn’t distinguish between murder and euthanasia from the Paige storyline. Why would it then differentiate between murder and manslaughter or the death penalty? There is no provision made for justifiable homicide.
It’s the Joker syndrome; if you kill him you’re a killer, but if you leave him alive he will kill again. How many innocent lives could have been saved by removing a psychopath permanently from society? Again, with a justice system in place, jail is an option - but there isn’t one in the Teen Wolf verse that can handle werewolves.
The TA then faces two options: 1) kill and lose the TA juju or 2) have someone do the killing for you so that your hands are technically clean.
They went with the second on the show with Jennifer’s death, even absolving Scott of having to make the decision. It’s likely they’ll take the same cop out option in the future, since they have a history of informed attributes and mind bending coincidences on the show, not to mention a distinct lack of consequences or followthrough. I understand and accept this.
In any situation with internal consistency, though, there’s three options I see happening, either separately or combined.
1. Scott is forced to kill someone, probably in the immediate defense if self or others, and loses the TA juju.
2. Derek or Stiles or both end up being the executioners for Beacon Hills, whether under orders or as poisonous friends.
3. Scott is killed by someone he refused to kill.*This is all leaving out my continuing issues with how he became a TA in the first place because it just makes me sad and tired to think of the wasted potential to make him actually heroic.
drop everything now
meet me in the pouring rain
kiss me on the sidewalk
take away the pain
'cause i see sparks fly whenever you smile.
I don’t want a lot for Christmas, there is just one thing I need
I don’t care about the presents underneath the Christmas tree
I just want XKit to work on iPad
More than you will ever know
Till the melodies of childish days, are upon, upon me
And they take me back, back down the river
They keep leading me on, they lead me to the sea
And all of my manhood is cast
Down in the flood of remembrance, and I weep like a child for the past.
Scott and Stiles arguing Leonardo vs Rafael with reference to both the original series and the latest reboot in the elevator on the way up to the loft, lacrosse gear slung across their backs and shoulders butting together
and it gets really intense as they arrive at the top floor. there’s wild gesticulation and talking over each other, so they don’t pay attention to the muffled ‘thump thump’ moving through the air
that is, until Scott pulls the sliding door wide open and out bursts music, Beyoncé in fact, loud enough to have them both rear back
and there’s Derek
