I just finished watching Teen Wolf sx23 and I'm so angry. I was spoilered for the big dramatic thing at the end but that doesn't stop me being pretty furious about it. I'm going to cut, here, just in case I spoil someone but I'm really, really disappointed that they decided to kill Allison off. Especially given that when Colton Haynes left the show they decided to write Jackson out in such a way that he could return whenever Colton wanted.

Of course, given that the show is supernatural, there's no reason that the dead can't come back... but it feels very final. It's hard not to feel like they just decided to dump a character who was unpopular with Twitteridiots (#killAllison infuriated me), now that she's no longer Scott's central romantic interest. And it also makes me a little edgy and uncomfortable that Crystal Reed dated Daniel Sharman and has occasionally mentioned/been critical about the "Boys' Club" elements of the behind-the-scenes cast culture, and now her character is killed off. This is almost certainly reading too much into it, but the whole thing makes me disappointed and angry.

I feel especially wary having been horrifically burned by Supernatural's high female body count and incessant pandering to the huge misogynist element of its fanbase. I really don't want to worry about Teen Wolf going the same way, especially when it has so many good things there. ;_;

For what it's worth, Crystal Reed has come out and said that she asked to leave and also asked to be killed off - she didn't want a way to come back, as opposed to Daniel Sharman, who specifically asked to be able to come back?

I get the feeling that Crysal Reed was DONE with being on the show and uncomfortable with how visible it made her?

Yeah, I'm completely up to date :D It was really important to me to represent Allison well in that fic, to not erase her. I actually thought the death they gave her on the show worked really well, if they were going to kill her off and, when you watch the finale, there are a few moments where they let them actually linger on what's happened that I thought worked well. I also liked that they let her be a HERO. She was capable and brilliant and she saved them. I really liked that.

Awh! You're so sweet. I actually have an idea for another Ronan/Kavinsky fic that will e...uh...just as dirty as the first one?

Yeah, I was glad that they let her and Scott have that moment, even if I did really like Allison/Issac as a ship. What did you think of the Malia situation? I managed to not be spoiled for that at ALL so it came as a HUGE SURPRISE, especially since, you know, I was planning to RP Stiles and that was a pretty big deal XD I actually liked it, for reasons I can explain, but, as with a lot of things, me and fandom do not agree XD

It is so difficult thinking of things to put into another fic that I didn't already do to Ronan in the first one XD

Yeah. The whole break-up thing illustrated one of the things that I like best about Teen Wolf. Supernatural stuff aside, they feel like teenagers that I KNOW. I teach ridiculous boys like Stiles and Scott. Teenaged girls are uncertain like Allison, but they want things so badly. So often, teenagers in media feel off to me and I like that Teen Wolf is getting that right, even when they make poor decisions. That sort of feeds into what I like about Stiles/Malia. Yeah, having sex in the BASEMENT of a mental institution was a poor choice, but they're teenagers and I also really liked that Stiles got something NICE then, something that made him feel good, you know? I think Dylan O'Brien acted the shit out of the Nogitsune storyline and I really bought into the fact that he made a choice for HIM there; Stiles in the middle of it all. Fandom, of course, shipping Sterek as hard as they do, have not taken to Malia XD Of course, I say this as someone who firmly believes that Stiles has been established as canon bi, no matter WHAT Dylan O'Brien says in misjudged interviews.

Wow. Apparently, I have feelings on that :b

You summed up exactly what I like about the Ronan/Kavinsky dynamic. Ronan is such a great character; he's so DANGEROUS and Gansey just barely keeps him under control, but Kavinsky lights the blue touch paper and doesn't stand back, you know? I like the way he pushes Ronan's boundaries and Ronan CAN'T hide things from him. I'm still at the thinky stage with a new fic. I am playing with the idea of them together while dreaming or POSSIBLY Kavinsky sort of nudging Ronan into public/semi-public...something. Because Ronan hides things so hard and I feel like Kavinsky WOULD push that button?

I feel like she's going for canon Ronan/Adam too. Which I would LOVE. I don't think Stiefvater pulls punches like that, which makes me really happy. I'm just starting with a new novel and I'm trying to decide whether the main character is queer or not. I think he might be.

He basically did an interview where he ought and ought said that Stiles is straight and implied that they're pretty deliberately queer-baiting, which is gross, but I also think he's, you know, 23 and not always in control of his mouth :b There's been a bunch of little things that say BI to me, but particularly the conversation he had with Zelda William's character when she said "You like girls" and he was like "absolutely" and then she asked him about liking boys and he HAD TO THINK ABOUT IT. I have read literally no fic in this fandom so I have no idea how people are writing him. I hope he feels right when I do!

The Raven Boys books and the Scorpio Races books are the only ones I've read, but I really liked them! I mean, I LOVED the Raven Cycle, and I thought the Scorpio Races was super satisfying. I just want to write all the dirty fic. Ronan apparently brings this out in me. The collar would need to make a reappearence.

This once's about a sentient city ship and a boy out of time. OA is done!

MAYA. Maya is YEARS ago, holy shit. It's so long ago that I had to think really hard to REMEMBER which stories that were. That was Mack and Gabe and Maya. Good lord. I am so much better now XD

I've got the start of the novel and would totally love to hear what you think if you want to give me an email address :D
