ARE YOU FUCKING TELLING ME THAT TYLER MADE DEREK’S SIGNATURE??????????? OMG?
my brain has too many tabs open
Most accurate thing ever
I can’t find the one that is playing that fucking song
This explains so much
Stiles Stilinski; Slytherin
Or perhaps in Slytherin
You'll make your real friends,
Those cunning folk use any means
To achieve their ends.
This gifset really fucking kills me. I know it’s been said before but every time I see it it always has the same effect. I’m pretty sure this is the scene where (I think it was) Jen (or one of the alphas) threw it in Stiles face that she knew where Stiles dad was. And Derek just lost his shit. Just fucking look at him. Look at his body language. How he throws the table across Stiles’ path so he won’t be able to try and stop him from going after them, almost like it would be a shield to block him from anything. And Stiles.. he had already been in the process of taking a step back. He wanted to back away because that shit fucking hurt him and then Derek just goes after them like a fucking guard dog and it just. Feels okay.
And Stiles doesnt even try to stop him.. because Stiles is tired. This whole situation had to have been taking a mental toll on him that he once in a while only lets people peak at. The real damage being done.. that’s the shit that he hides away from the world. The boy probably hadn’t slept in days.. crying at night when no one’s around because he knows what’s at stake.
I wouldn’t be surprised if Derek took a walk past his house every now and again to check on him. He could probably hear him in his room trying to keep the sound of his sobs down even though the house was empty. Especially because the house is empty.
Because Derek knows. He knows what a toll this has taken on Stiles. Stiles knows what it’s like to lose one parent but Derek knows what it’s like to lose both. And he doesn’t want to watch Stiles go through that pain. That change in his psyche. He wants to protect Stiles from the world and he wants better for Stiles than what he had to go through. He doesn’t want anyone to go through that. Not scott, not even Allison.
And I’m not even talking romantically. This has nothing to do with the ship. This is what canon character development suggests. Derek genuinely cares about Stiles. The human of the pack. And we all know that he’s verbally constipated but he appreciates the fuck out of Stiles, even if he can’t always express it.
So when it gets thrown in Stiles face again.. he just loses it.
Tell me again how Derek only cares about himself. He cares about everyone BUT himself and that is a WHOLE OTHER CONVERSATION FOR ANOTHER DAY BECAUSE GODDAMN IF STILL WATERS RUN DEEP HE IS THE FUCKING PACIFIC OCEAN.
TL:DR - Derek cares about Stiles a lot.
i actually like asshole couples best like the couples that pick on each other so much and call each other names but it’s okay because you know they’re actually totally in love and none of it is meant in a mean way and every insult is punctuated by a sweet comment to remind the other how much they actually adore them and i’m sorry but there isn’t anything cuter ok
#god this scene always sticks out in my brain as one of the most important derek hale moments of s1 #because in this tiny moment we get so much insight into derek #up until this point everyone thinks he’s evil or rude or a jerk or whatever #or at the very least cranky all the time #but god no derek didn’t fucking want any of it #deep down he’s a scared boy who lost his entire family and recently his sister #and everyone in the town thinks /he/ murdered her #meanwhile he’s trying to find her actual killer and not get himself hunted down #and juggling scott’s problems #AND HE’S SCARED #HE PUTS ON THE BRAVEST FACE BECAUSE HE HAS SO MUCH HE TRIES TO HANDLE BUT FUCK #HE GETS SCARED TOO #I mean look at his terrified face in that first gif and doesn’t it just break your heart #no one thinks of derek like this#so vulnerable and nervous #but he has so much that he hides beneath a frown#and it was so nice to see a moment of pure instinct #something he couldn’t cover up #and I still see derek like this more than anything #a scared boy who lost his family #who was forced to grow up too fast
having a crush on both a character and the person who plays that character is just like
prepare for trouble
and make it double
