Oh no zombees

You have to wonder how many times anyone has ever said that to Emma, the kid who counted days in her foster homes and who have up her baby so he’d have a better life than she did.

I wonder how many times in her life Emma’s heard that she has potential. She expects Regina to be mad at her for doing it wrong, when Regina’s just mad she hasn’t been doing it //all along//.

That awkward moment when you realize exactly what Regina meant when she said, “No matter how hard I try to please the king, he only thinks about his first wife.”

And you go, “Ewwwwww.”

And then cry a little, because she’s a young girl forced into a broken marriage by her manipulative and abusive mother, to a man she will never please regardless of how she tries—and realize that the odds are pretty high that Regina is expected to “please him”, whether she likes it or not…and the man’s old enough to be her father.

Hi,

I figured I’d chime in because I actually have first-hand experience with PTSD, in that I live with it.

Derek is one of the most nuanced portrayals of PTSD I’ve seen in media in a long time.
People like to think that PTSD is all screaming at fireworks and “I been to ‘Nam!”, but the reality is that more people get PTSD from the mundane horrors than the big ones.
Childhood sexual assault (like the sort Kate inflicted on Derek), the loss of a family member (also part of Derek’s history) and the repeated physical and emotional abuse (even from his own side, thanks Scott and Deaton), a botched surgery…

He shows all the symptoms of Complex PTSD; any therapist worth their salt would be able to see that.

But there’s something I wanted to bring up with you:

"he isn’t defined by the worst things that have happened to him. that he can’t let the past haunt him, keep coming back to scare him and deprive him of a normal life."

This is all fine and good, and I can appreciate the spirit with which you wrote it, but here’s where I see that you don’t have first hand experience with the illness. (Which is not a bad thing! I wouldn’t wish this bullshit on anyone.)

For lots of us, the disease doesn’t give us that choice. We relive the worst experiences of our lives every time we close our eyes; flashbacks blur the line between reality and memory and there’s nothing we can do to stop them.
He’s not /letting/ the past do anything; he is a victim of a misfiring brain. PTSD changes the chemistry of your brain. Neural links die. Your brain physically shrinks.

And without intensive, consistent, long term therapy, the prognosis for recovery is poor. Even with the best-case treatment scenarios, there’s no “recovery”. There’s simply management.
And Derek is far from the best case; given the show, and the stress inherent, it’s actually a bit surprising that he hasn’t had a psychiatric breakdown.

I think it’s actually more realistic that he HASN’T improved; certainly it’s more true to life. Why would he be getting better, if he has no support, no guidance and no calm with which to work on re-establishing equilibrium?
It’d actually do LESS justice to the realities of living with PTSD if he DID start to miraculously (and it would be just that—miraculous, since human brains don’t just spontaneously reboot) get better. It certainly wouldn’t represent the illness better; it’d imply that it could be cured through willpower—a dangerous suggestion that is patently false.

So, I just thought I’d offer a differing opinion, from someone who has personal experience with the circumstances.

WOW. Just, just wow. 

There it is. It’s right there. 

BTW: The crew people on the show have said we should always pay attention to the lighting, because it’s significant.

Huh. Didn’t work then, because it wasn’t a mutual thing. stiles was bossing him around, not helping him.

Now the two colours work on synchronicity.

"Sometimes it’s a form of love just to talk to somebody that you have nothing in common with and still be f a s c i n a t e d by their presence.”

Actually, have we noticed that whenever Derek feels stressed, or is threatened or in danger or somehow at risk, it’s always Stiles who he trusts to save him?

At first, he didn’t like Stiles, but he still trusted him not to fuck up the amputation.
Then, Stiles risked his own life (twice) to save Derek.

Now, we see Derek /dream/ of Stiles in the absence of the real thing, trusting him to get him through this fresh crisis safely.

He doesn’t just trust Stiles’ advice, he trusts Stiles.

OH MY GOD THE DAD JOKE IS PERFECT

“Well, not all of us are in the same weight class so it is hard to say between Hemsworth and Evans. I think they’re pretty evenly matched. I think it would go to the ground. Then I think it’s me, Ruffalo, and Renner in a quote-unquote three-way in which I lay waste to them with sleeper holds but then we cuddle. And then it is Hiddleston versus Johansson if I am not mistaken. That probably just winds up in dinner at a five-star restaurant somewhere.”

derek: stabbed straight through with steel pipe, perfectly fine

scott: stabbed straight through with sword, perfectly fine

boyd: impaled by 1/2 inch claws, dies

derek: impaled with countless glass shards, perfectly fine

kali: impaled with countless glass shards, dies

werewolves go from being invulnerable to like dying from a paper cut 

Continuity and logic in the land of Teen Wolf’s deaths are elusive, endangered species. 

But this actually does fit the continuity, at least the Boyd stuff.

The sword and the pipe are both inanimate objects, neither were laced with wolfsbane and so, they can be healed.
Derek and Scott were also both alphas at the time, which presumably means they’re able to heal faster.

But we know that wounds inflicted by an alpha take much longer to heal and CAN kill—and Boyd was held down on Derek’s claws.

So a) open and ragged wound (as opposed to a clean wound via solid object (which is why you should NEVER remove an embedded object if you’re performing first aid—the object is likely blocking blog vessels to prevent exsanguination!!))
b) “inflicted” by an alpha,

So Boyd couldn’t have healed. Which is almost guaranteed why the twins chose to do it that way.
