Except for Meredith, this rant comes obviously so late. A lot of people already wrote about all this, and most of them probably wrote it way better than me, but I needed to get it all out. I am a shy, introvert person, and it takes a serious shitload of shitty things for me to admit that I’m tired of somebody’s shit. And after all that happened + Meredith’s death, I am tired of Teen Wolf and Jeff Davis’s shit. So there goes:
I am not a vocal person, especially not when it comes to fandoms.
One of the things that got me hooked on this show was the O’Brien/Hoechlin interaction, not only because it was clear that the chemistry was there, but also because their characters were balancing each other perfectly and therefore, comedy gold which is why they kept having more and more scenes in the first place! And yes, that led me to ship Sterek, but I never recognized myself in the downright-crazy-overdramatic-delusional-childish-and-even-somewhat-of-a-bully? description of the Sterek shipper that’s been around for so long. I’m not denying that some of them might be like that, but not once in my 3years of moderate shipping have I seen such an individual. But it doesn’t matter, right? All Sterek shippers are crazy, even the ones like me who don’t do anything, don’t talk shit about anything, etc.
When this generalization comes from the fandom itself, it’s hurtful.
When this generalization comes from the show’s own cast and crew, it’s really upsetting and almost damaging.
When this generalization comes from the show’s own cast and crew, who at first ACTUALLY embraced said ship, played with the idea of it, based most of it’s promo on it… I only have one expression for it, but sorry, it’s in French: c’est se FOUTRE de la gueule du monde ! Basically, it’s a mix between “you’ve gotta be fucking kidding me” and “you took me -or rather,the entire world- for an idiot”.
To think that now they’re actively keeping Hoechlin and O’Brien apart when their scenes were classic comedy, kinda the highlight of the show really, and acting like Sterek is a taboo worse than HIV in the 80s… Even for a non-vocal and moderate shipper like me, it’s infuriating to be treated like that.
And I don’t write fanfic -I don’t read much either- and I’m not at all into fanart, but people who create those have to be respected like anybody else, instead of being ridiculed by a show that was so happy people like them existed when the fanbase was growing.
And it’s not like the story in and of itself is so great that we can forgive all that: so many bad choices were made, and I don’t even know why. Stupidity, perhaps? Jackson should have died when Colton decided to leave. Cora and Paige are the worst thing that happened to this show because Derek’s background story was JUST perfect and just tragic enough the way it was! Now he seems like a character from The Young and The Restless, with the miraculously alive sister no one had heard of before, who had to disappear once again because the actress didn’t stick around my god, not only was Cora a fucking bad, BAD idea, but they can’t even make sure they fucking secure the fucking actor for such an important part? After all the people that already left and damaged the story? After all that, you don’t make damn sure this one is gonna stay? GOD You know which sister I’d like to learn more about? The one that was there since the fucking PILOT. LAURA? REMEMBER LAURA? I’D LIKE TO HEAR ABOUT LAURA. THANK YOU. So yeah, first the unheard-of sister, and then the young love that died because of him? Cause he, and we, needed that? Wasn’t Kate enough? Wasn’t Kate just perfect as a first love that destroyed all his family and traumatized him forever? Yes she was. All that just undermined Derek’s character, and I wish it had never happened.
And then we have that thing where I get the feeling that everytime something major happens, the characters deal with it for 2mins and then completely forget about it. Jackson, Isaac, Cora leave? Ok, we’ll say 2 sentences and then it’s over. Allison dies? She was so important to Scott, and yet it seems only Lydia mourns her. Why can’t we see Scott more depressed, having a proper breakdown instead of jumping to Kira right away like he’s not devastated by Allison’s death? Just give me realistic time and realistic reactions before making Scira happen! For every death there is, it’s like we have one little scene of acknowledging the death and the pain and the mourning, and then everything is fine again. We don’t even have funerals for god’s sake! Holland is right: we needed a funeral scene so much. Same with other major stuff: I really don’t see Stiles dealing with his possession in 3b. I never saw the “Stiles & Scott friendship will be tested to the limit" plot that was supposed to happen some time ago -can’t remember, maybe in 3a. It’s like Teen Wolf always tell us we’re gonna have a great afternoon swimming, and then all we get to see is them dipping a toe in the water. Nothing else for the rest of the day.
What we do get, is “TV licence” when dealing with a character that could have been awesome. Malia could have been so fucking awesome. She’s got a good and pretty actress, and a great storyline of a girl/coyote that has to adapt to our human world. But nooo, she had to become this unrealistic badass who, after spending almost all her life away from civilisation with what should be a 9yo-mentality, knows how to sexy-dance better than Kira, takes the same classes as our heroes, and is joined by the hip with Stiles. Because having her in a “pseudo-solid” relationship right away, before even developing her character alone OR developing the relationship, is way more important than explaining what the fuck her story was in 3B, why she was in Eichen House, what was her agenda, why her eyes were glowing evilly, why she left like that, etc.
Same with Braeden. She HAD to be a clichéd badass, because when you’re female, either you’re a cliché and preferably a clichéd badass, or you’re not worth being part of the story. So obviously she’s going to be with Derek becauuuuuse… Because that makes absolutely no sense? The guy has the return of his old flame I swear when I wrote it I didn’t realize what a bad joke this would make, but now I can’t stop laughing XD to focus on! And after the darach, he should now that the middle of a crisis is not the right time to do the nasty with a shady clichéd badass girl.
But then, we got Meredith. HILARIOUS Meredith. Strange, not-you-typical-tv-show-pretty-girl-looking, original Meredith. I kept looking for info on whether she was coming back for the 4th season and whether she’d have a more important role, because she would have been such an amazing addition to the cast, and a budding friendship with Lydia would have been sweet. That and the possibly completely random hilarious conversations she could have had with the other characters, like everything she had given us till she died. Meredith would have been something to look forward to every week! I dunno whose great idea it was, probably Davis of course, but fuck you for killing her, fuck you for not realizing when you have something good in your hands. You finally had someone untypical to make up, even just a lil bit, for all the stereotypes, and you kill her. Great fucking job.
PS: By the way, you know who had a good introduction and an even better character development? Deputy cutie patootie Parrish. I love Parrish more and more each episode, everybody does! Here’s proof that you can sometimes do a great job with characters, so do it with the girls too!
Game Of Thrones’s “Main Title” performed by medieval singer Luc Arbogast
Arturo is a 29-year-old male polar bear currently living in Argentina’s Mendoza Zoo. He is suffering in 40C (104F) heat in an enclosure that has just 20 inches of water for him to swim in and has as a consequence been displaying worrying behavior.
Please sign this petition or at least spread the word in order to have Arturo transferred to a zoo in Canada which has better facilities for an animal that is used to polar conditions.

It’s a real shame, and kinda lame that Paris never has fireworks for the new year, but let me tell you: the ones we have for Bastille Day are breathtakingly beautiful.
Buddy, I don’t mean to poke my nose in where it don’t belong, but that there is a dame to kill for. Why’d you let her go?
