I’ve been trying to work out how Teen Wolf fits into the post-Buffy TV world, and I still haven’t quite worked it out. Buffy and Xander especially were very aware of their respective roles as stereotypes of characters found in teen horror movies, and acted accordingly. Teen Wolf, on the other hand, has a full cast of people who act like horror movie idiots. Stiles is the only genre-savvy one, although that might not so much be a geek-culture thing (ie, like Xander or Peter Parker) so much as the fact that he has excellent intuition. Stiles just *knows* stuff, and not in the sense that he “just knows”, which would definitely be bad writing — it’s more like he’s the only character who pays attention to everything going on around him, and then at some point a Sherlock Holmes moment happens at the back of his mind and he realises, Oh shit, this is what’s been happening all along. — from Teen Wolf 2x11: “Battlefield” at Hello, Tailor.
#‘scott mccall only cares about lacrosse and sex’ #HMMM but u’re wrong #scott cares about everyone around him he cares about keeping people alive keeping them from getting hurt #he was the only one who told isaac to be careful #he was the only one who checked on danny’s well being #he held erica’s hand when she seized he literally GIVES HER HIS HAND TO HOLD #people treated her like she was infectious but not scott mccall because he’s not a shit human being like fandom seems to think he is #he let himself be locked in a refrigerator to keep beacon hills safe #he literally does whatever he can to keep people safe #and if you’re going to discredit him because ONCE /once/ right after he was nonconsensually turned into a wolf #he wanted to play lacrosse ONCE he fucked up his priorities #after a very traumatic experience because he just wanted to be a teenager #and you want to fault him for that? #fuck you
