Writing and reading fanfiction isn’t just something you do; it’s a way of thinking critically about the media you consume, of being aware of all the implicit assumptions that a canonical work carries with it, and of considering the possibility that those assumptions might not be the only way things have to be.
At this late date, fanfiction has become wildly more biodiverse that the canonical works that it springs from. It encompasses male pregnancy, centaurification, body swapping, apocalypses, reincarnation, and every sexual fetish, kink, combination, position, and inversion you can imagine and probably a lot more that you could but would probably prefer not to. It breaks down walls between genders and genres and races and canons and bodies and species and past and future and conscious and unconscious and fiction and reality. Culturally speaking, this work used to be the job of the avant garde, but in many ways fanfiction has stepped in to take that role. If the mainstream has been slow to honor it, well, that’s usually the fate of aesthetic revolutions. Fanfiction is the madwoman in mainstream culture’s attic, but the attic won’t contain it forever.

drarry au in which the slytherins slip draco a 24-hour love potion so that he falls in love with harry potter
and they’re all laughing watching him drink it and they watch him all day waiting for him to make a fool of himself
and he doesn’t act any different
Ever since the episode aired, I wondered exactly why Peter persuaded Derek to use his alpha powers - give up his alpha power - to save Cora. We all know Peter wants power again and surely getting rid of the Hale Alpha line is non-conductive to his purpose.
Now Derek has been de-powered even more. His eyes changed colour again - from blue to yellow until he no longer had any powers left and his eyes (and the rest of him) remain human. This was done by Kate - somehow using whatever magic wolfsbane she entombed him in. She is now working with Peter.
I can’t help but feel that there might be a connection there. Maybe. Did Derek violently giving up his Alpha powers somehow trigger this or something? What does Peter get out of Derek doing this apart from having one less person of power to fight if he tries to seize power? Also, why did he ever tell Stiles about why Derek’s eyes changed from yellow to blue originally? I know this served a narrative purpose as to inform us about Paige and the Nemeton, but it was framed in such a way, posing Peter as a unreliable narrator, that I’m still curious as to whether it has a deeper meaning.
I am certainly interested to find out more about Peter and what his intentions are. We know he likes to manipulate people and situations. What his endgame is and what he plans to do, I don’t know.
Derek “I may be losing my werewolf powers but I’m going to jump in front of you and attempt to protect you, Alpha and friend of my mom, also look at my soft fluffy purple v-neck shirt, isn’t it adorable” Hale
ATTENTION ALL MY TROYLER PEOPLE

I’d rather die than wait.
You know you done fucked up when Piccolo thinks you’re abusing your son. One of the best scenes in the entire series, seriously.
Love this scene to death. Piccolo has always been more of a father to Gohan than Goku has; he understands him so much more.
What I find the most painful about the fact they killed off Allison Argent is how completely pointless it is. Apart from a few tears in the finale, there’s been no real reaction to her death.
If she had been shot, had that emotional moment with Scott, then lived but left for France anyway, the characters would be no different to how they are now. Even Chris seems unaffected and I don’t think he’s even mentioned her this season. Kate Argent doesn’t seem to have even noticed her death. Scott has now moved on with Kira and Issac has disappeared to France without even a second mention.
It’s only the fans who will remember that she’s died and remember how she was sidelined in her final season. How her death was just a cheap stunt to try and get more views. Her death had no real impact on the plot or on the characters according to how the show is written. The characters weren’t inspired to fight back harder because they already had enough reason to.
Why do we keep getting shots like this?
Stiles as the spider in the web
Camera goes right through the ‘benefactor’ and you see Stiles sleeping on the other side.
This is VERY worrisome to me. Could he be acting and not remembering, like what we saw in 3b? Could 1000 year old ‘you can’t kill me’ actually have survived because he’s 1000 years old and the cleverest of them all?
