asked: That really is rude. There was nothing wrong with the promo, Stiles was fine where the show put him. Scott is still the main character, and he can shine without being front and center. If you're really that desperate to see him in direct spotlight always, just stare at the 3B cast photo.
But it’s not fine. It’s not fine that he is sidelined just because he isn’t the fan favourite. It’s not fine that he’s the main character and isn’t being treated as such. It’s not fine that his main character status is being questioned. It’s not fine that the main character isn’t in the direct spotlight and that we even have to wonder “oh is Scott still the main character?”
I love Stiles, he’s probably my favourite character tie with Scott and Allison, but he’s not the main character and he shouldn’t be in the front when it’s common knowledge that promotional photos are shot in hierarchy. You would never see Hermione in the middle of a Harry Potter promo shoot and that’s not because she’s not a great character, it’s because she’s not the main character.
Scott deserves better, he deserves to be in the spotlight and not shunned to the side like he’s done so often in show and in fandom.
Let’s all stop treating Allison Argent like an object, yeah?
Scott doesn’t own her sexuality or romantic future—and nor should he. Acting as if Allison owes Scott anything for participating in a relationship with him for four months is really problematic—doing that reduces her to a sexual object, a prize that goes to the “winner” rather than an individual with her own wants and needs.
Not wanting to get back together with Scott now (or even ever) doesn’t make Allison a bad person, a traitor to the pack, a traitor to Scott, or any of the multitude of other things I’ve seen tumblr call her ever seen the Allisaac reveal. It doesn’t make her an “evil bitch” who is coming between the divine code of bros. It doesn’t mean OMG SHE’S GOING TO BREAK UP THEIR FRIENDSHIP
- Do we know that? Has that even been shown? Nope.
- Would it be relevant to her moral character if it had been shown? Nope.
- Is Allison responsible for maintaining Scott and Isaac’s friendship? Nope.
- Is she betraying Scott by getting with Isaac? Nope.
If her getting with Isaac causes tension between him and Scott, that’s their problem. End of story. It’s not her responsibility to mother their friendship.
And I understand if people just don’t ship Allisaac and ship Scisaac or Scallison or Scallisaac more or whatever. I have no issue with that? I don’t ship it either. Just don’t use it as a vehicle for misogyny.
But wow people are being really gross? About Allison/Crystal? Can we not!?!
they all do that ‘let’s take on the alpha pack’ thing even though they’re mega strong and let’s not actually try anything different but still get our asses kicked
I keep wondering when these guys will try out different tactics. You’d think they’d try using different weapons at least, like long ranged ones since they know they can’t take on the alphas in a melee fight.
boyd was the only one who was like “y’know let’s try something new”. everyone else is like claws out
Allison was hardly “vilified”. Her mother was forced to kill herself by her evil manipulative grandfather who manipulated Allison into attacking the wolves. AND IN THE END SHE REALIZED SHE WAS WRONG AND DECIDED SHE NEEDED TO TAKE A BREAK AND REEVALUATE HER LIFE. Allison doesn’t need to become a hero again!! She IS one. She’s made some bad decisions when she was OVERWHELMED BY GRIEF and trusted the one family member that seemed put together.
AS FOR THE FANS. PLEASE. Those same fans who were A OKAY with Peter “I killed my niece then terrorized a town attacking people including my ONLY surviving family member then manipulated a teenage girl into thinking she was losing her mind” Hale being brought back to life because he’s FUNNY??? (By the way Peter being brought back to life makes NO sense to me as Derek was CLEARLY aware that to kill a werewolf you have to tear them in half so WHY DIDN’T HE DO IT??)
I thought Jeff said he didn’t let fans influence his writing. ugh.
REVENGE AU: The one in which Emily Thorne and Amanda Clarke were married in front of everyone they love and rode off into the sunset for a happily ever after with their adorable little nugget of a son.
Aka the one in which none of ‘Sacrifice’ happened.
