Oh my god, look at this! In the first gif, his eyes are closing, he’s giving up! He thinks Stiles has abandoned him!
But no, Stiles comes back for him again, chooses Derek over his own chances of survival.
COULD THIS SHIP GET ANY MORE CANON?!
maliex replied to your post: OH GOD. I NEED SOMEONE WHO UNDERSTANDS TO FLAIL AT. STEREK. JUST, STEREK. DEREK’S FIRST THOUGHT WHEN THE MONSTER ATTACKED WAS TO SAVE STILES. AND STILES WENT BACK TO RESCUE HIM AGAIN. Every time Stiles stands up to Derek, Derek thinks he’ll leave, hurt him, abandon him. But then he always comes back and SAVES him. Oh lord, so many FEELS!STILES CAME FIRST. BEFORE THE DAMN PACK, DEREK HAD STILES. WHO WAS SMART, KNEW THINGS, WOULD COME WHEN HE CALLED, WAS ALWAYS THERE. DEREK OWES HIM, AND KNOWS IT. ALSO, ALPHA FEMALE ANYONE?
MY HAND IS SHAKING AND I CAN’T THINK STRAIGHT AND YES FUCKING HES STILES CAME FIRST. EVERY FUCKING TIME!
IT’S BEEN HALF AN HOUR AND MY MIND’S STILL BLOWN.
HE TOLD HIM TO RUN. HE JUST IGNORED HIS BETA LYING ON THE FLOOR AND TOLD STILES TO RUN. AND HE KNEW STILES WOULD TELL HIM WHAT HE SAW. HE KNEW HE’D BE HONEST AND DETAILED. HE BARELY EVEN HAD TO PROD/THREATEN BEFORE STILES BEGAN TELLING HIM.
Oh man, I think, the only reason Stiles isn’t actually on Derek’s side, is because he’s loyal to Scott. Scott says no, so Stiles has to figure out how to work around him. So with the ball puncturing thing, I think he was probably relieved. Now he can honestly tell Scott that Derek threatened him, and that he had to tell.
And you know, just generally, he treats Stiles a lot nicer, and a lot more like an equal than he does his wolves.
ALSO, WHAT DOES HE MEAN HE ALREADY HAS SOMEONE IN MIND FOR ERICA? IS HE GONNA CHOOSE WHO SHE MATES WITH OR SOMETHING? WHAT KIND OF MEDIEVAL BULLSHIT IS THAT?!
I’ve seen a lot of people say that Derek hanging round/flirting with all these pretty ladies in front of Stiles is an attempt to make Stiles jealous, and I can totally get behind that. But.
It won’t work. It’ll seriously backfire. We’re talking about Stiles here. Stiles, who has admired Lydia since the fourth grade, and still doesn’t quite have the guts to just come out and say it to her face (I’m referring to 203 here, skipping where he told her in the hospital - and then chickened out- and the formal). If he does like Derek, then all this is doing is destroying his hopes. He won’t ever say anything, because I bet if anything, Stiles doesn’t think he even has a league, let alone that it’s anywhere near Derek’s. You know, as in ‘He’s totally out of your league’? I think Stiles sees himself as just sitting and watching everyone else’s leagues and making snarky comments.
So Derek, baby, I can see what you’re doing, and you’re doing it wrong.
