Scott McCall mixed race Latin@ head canons you will have to pry away from my cold dead hands:
- He’s stumbling over learning Spanish and his mom’s very encouraging. Maybe once a day they speak only Spanish to each other, and he’s carefully saving up money to take her and the Stillinski duo to Mexico.
- His mother has warned him about racism, and he walks a little faster when someone catcalls him.
- He’s spent some nights—maybe when he was younger and living with his dad—thinking about if he got to call himself Latin@. Not even because of privilege, but because of being mixed and torn.
- He calls Peter, Deucalion, and Gerard “Los diablos blancos”.
- Speaking of them, he feels very uncomfortable because they’re very predatory towards him and he feels vulnerable as a young Latin@ male—he knows the stereotypes and the situations that have occurred.
- Sometimes he speaks Spanish to Stiles—it just slips out. Sometimes it’s intentional, and Scott calls Stiles “Mi hermano”, “mi amigo”. Maybe once or twice “te amo/quiero” will slip out really quiet and soft.
Scott McCall as a mixed race Latin@ come one someone do something with it please.
scott mccall #idk if it’s weird to reblog this because i stumbled across it while googling something else but it’s p e r f e c t #i’m so thankful scott was canonically confirmed as mixed even if tptb could’ve done a lot better job with it #this is so important to me i’m crying a little

bad writing à la teen wolf
rather than write a new female character with her own motivations and backstory. the new female characters are born from the same template
malia is a replacement for cora’s story arc/close relationship with the core cast
cora was a replacement for erica’s story arc/close relationship with the core cast
erica was killed off for no apparent reason
even part of erica’s character template was given to lydia in 3B. instead of creating three new narratives they used one female template to insert into scenes with a male cast member. there is no standalone cora/talia scenes
yeah, for most of its run, allison has been the only main female character on the show that wasn’t mostly interchangeable with the other main female characters. now with the addition of kira (who is awesome and who i adore so this is not a condemnation of her in any way) that is no longer true; allison and kira are similar enough in general family background and character development that i assume allison will be killed off fairly soon, as she is no longer useful.
i hate everything, but mostly i hate jeff davis’ inability to see female characters as anything other than interchangeable objects to be discarded at will.
accurate. allison’s character template is being reused for kira (even the romance story between her and scott is eerily similar). and victoria’s for kira’s mother. teen wolf female characters are really treated as interchangeable commodities by the writers. there is no effort for their character development to be unique or influential to the story
what’s the most discouraging is that even the white male villains, the ones who get all of the writing attention, fit the same basic template. peter, matt, and deucalion are all obsessive megalomaniacs who become powerful after near-death encounters; trapped in a fire, almost drowning, being blinded. they feel wronged and so they kill people. it’s embarrassing and it’s stupid. these are the only characters the writers really care about and they’re all basically identical clones of the same disgusting asshole. that’s truly telling of how lazy, predictable, and unoriginal the writing is.
so you wanna play with my dick?
well baby you should know what you’re falling for

teen wolf mid season speculation
-the promos have led us to assume that the nogitsune was the victim of what may have been a secret internment camp in beacon hills
-this would easily explain kira’s assertion that someone must have deeply offended the nogitsune to make it so angry
-what we believe to be the nogitsune’s body was found sealed within the walls of the basement of eichen house
oliver and barrow are paralleling characters
-barrow resided at eichen house, and had a nest of bugs in his chest
-barrow bombed a schoolbus because he felt he needed to kill a group of children whose eyes he had seen glowing
-oliver resided at eichen house and was seen coughing up bugs
-oliver tried to drill holes in stiles and malia’s skulls because he thought he needed to save them from evil spirits
-we see clearly that the nogitsune was controlling oliver, threatening stiles to have oliver kill malia if he didn’t let him back in stiles’ mind
-the logical conclusion is that the nogitsune was also controlling barrow, but that theory also has many flaws
-there are lots of contradictions and i am going to list them now
-the first and foremost point being, that if the nogitsune had to drain an entire power grid to have full control over one host body (stiles), then before charging itself up the nogitsune would not feasibly have been strong enough to control two hosts (barrow and stiles)
-if the nogitsune was busy controlling barrow, and barrow was incarcerated in isolation at eichen house, then it doesn’t make sense for the nogitsune to have known enough about kira to target her
-also if the nogitsune was controlling barrow’s actions then it shouldn’t have had to leave him a message of whom to kill
-barrow was an electrician, not a chemist. it’s very suspicious that the numbers on the board were enough to send a coherent message
-if the nogitsune was controlling barrow then it doesn’t make sense for it to have jumped to stiles when kira was right in front of it
-as an electric-element kitsune, kira would have been the perfect host. her mother would have been less likely to attack, and she would have made it easier for the nogitsune to absorb energy
-in comparison, it makes almost no sense that the nogitsune chose stiles. even with the extra power absorbed at the grid, he’s still just a weak human.
-barrow planted a bomb on a school bus consisting of screws and nails, in other words shrapnel, in a gift wrapped box
-stiles pranked coach finstock by leaving the screws to all of his furniture inside of a gift wrapped box on his desk
-stiles claimed that barrow had used his ideas for the bomb, but barrow had already been charged and arrested for the bombing well before halloween, which is when stiles pulled his prank
-if barrow was put in eichen house for bombing the bus, and if the nogitsune took hold of barrow while he was residing at eichen house, then barrow must have acted without the nogitsune’s influence, which means that he must have consciously, of his own free will, decided to bomb the schoolbus.
-we’ve established that stiles couldn’t have been host to the nogitsune while it was still inside barrow, and that barrow bombed the bus on his own, so it makes no sense for the nogitsune to have used the same style of bomb at the police station when it’s calling card is much more along the lines of silent killing. that was bad writing, and it’s grasping at straws to make connections out of nowhere.
additional loose ends
-barrow may well have been already unstable before the nogitsune took hold of him, but it’s unlikely that he just imagined glowing eyes, especially since we know that there are tons of people in the town that really do have eyes that can glow. so who did he see, and more importantly, who did he kill? nowhere in the episode are casualties mentioned, but there were clearly specific children he was intent on killing. he didn’t kill scott or any of their friends. could there be more supernatural creatures in beacon hills that aren’t yet acounted for?
-in his nightmare, stiles was in the basement of eichen house. we discover that he was in the coyote den all along when he finally wakes up. however, in his dream, when the nogitsune grabs his ankle and drags him, we see the floor of the basement become dirt. was this just a transition into wakefulness, or perhaps a physical movement? lydia and co find out that stiles wasn’t in the basement, but the kanji for self is, and if the nogitsune has enough power to completely control it’s host maybe stiles was there in the basement. otherwise how would his waking mind have recognized it later when he was in the facility?
-why would morrel have given stiles drugs under the table and without a prescription? as a doctor of psychology and a member of staff, it’s very likely that she could have justified giving medications to a patient. all she did was undermine her own efforts to help stiles stay awake, which leads one to wonder how much she actually cares about saving his life. she very explicitly said that she would use lethal injection to take stiles’ life if need be to stop the nogitsune, thus irresponsibly and dangerously putting the onus of keeping his own life on him. she then did nothing to help stiles when he was put in isolation and sedated.
-in the police station bombing derek sustained serious injuries, shards of glass all over his back. not only did these same injuries kill kali, but they also would have been almost impossible to hide. he was already incarcerated at the time. even though it was the middle of a disaster, there still would have been a guard on them, or paramedics on them, or something.
-kotashi is pronounced dead, resulting in team scott going to find the scroll he had on the nogitsune. they come across kincade, the werewolf kotashi had hired to protect him. this is highly suspicious - did he suddenly decide to stop protecting his client? did he see the real murder take place? does he know about the nogitsune, or have more informatino on it? also, if the nogitsune framed derek and chris for the murder, then it implies that it was the one who actually committed the crime, and it would have done this wearing stiles as it’s host of course. though it was unintentional, this will have been stiles’ first instance of actually killing someone. if the show is willing to treat derek like a killer for paige and then boyd, and jackson like a killer for his time as a kanima, then this has to count against stiles as well. if he becomes a werewolf, his eyes will be blue. if there is a thorough investigation, stiles may be found as the real culprit, which could have extreme consequences.
-and just as a last one, the making of the oni is pretty mysterious. mr yukimura says his wife is sacrificing too many of her tails, but all we really see is her breaking these little pieces of metal? the fireflies manifest as the oni, and perhaps the metal rods become the oni’s swords. if so, is the sword kira is using one of her mother’s tails? because i can’t tell if that’s really sweet or really disturbing. can a kitsune become an oni? will that happen to kira if she continues using the sword? lots of questions arise.
in conclusion there are a lot of fucking inconsistencies and things that don’t make a goddamn ounce of sense on this show and it’s infuriating and i have never want to save a show from it’s writers more
teen wolf’s grotesquely ableist and trope-dependent interpretation of a mental health facility was almost as offensive of their formulaic slaughter of female/non-white characters
i ain’t ever gonna make “convince bigots that i’m really just a swell person” a part of or priority of my politics and i really don’t get people who do
"you just make them angry and defensive" yeah so what i’m not in this for those assholes
as a teenager adam levine had horrific acne and a full unibrow and was so socially awkward that he could barely make eye contact with people. if that isn’t inspiring then i don’t know what the fuck is.
so i got inspired by the food network
and i went from having never made cupcakes before
to making them three times this week
on monday i made dark cocoa cupcakes filled with a rich chocolate ganache and topped with a creme de menthe frosting. these turned out perfect. they were the absolute best out of everything all week, and possibly the best thing i’ve ever baked.
on wednesday i made pina colada cupcakes with a pineapple juice compote and coconut spiced rum glaze. the glaze turned out to be way too sweet for my taste, but everyone else liked it.
and today i made caramelized brown-sugar peach cupcakes dipped in a thin white chocolate glaze and then topped with a ginger and hard cider frosting. they’re seriously light and fluffy, and i think i got a bit of a buzz off of em.
like seriously i feel like a cupcake goddess i could go on cupcake wars today and win
