what kind of things would derek put on his MANNERS BANNER for hale’s primary school for werewolf children?
At my school, we use an acronym, which is on posters all over and the teachers go over it with the kids. It’s most effective with the tiny ones, but for werewolf preK-2nd, I’d…
Help one another
Opt for kindness
Work as a pack
Lead by example
It’s just too cute. Little fluffy-cheeked wolf cubs chanting along. “Teacher Hale, what’s an example?”
Anonymous said: Regina is Emma's grandmother. How fucked up are you?
Because it’s not fucked up a young teenager was forced into a marriage with someone who looks like her grandfather.
Not to mention he used to date her mom and was almost her father!
Actually, let’s break this down.
Regina spent approximately a year, maybe a little more, as a teenaged bride to a man old enough to be her father.
If you look at the way Young!Regina is portrayed, she’s obviously in her late teens. Young!Snow is ten, maybe eleven. You’re looking at an age disparity of maybe a decade AT MOST. Regina isn’t old enough to be a mother to a ten year old when she’s not even out of her teens.
And why don’t we talk about WHY she’s Snow’s mother. King Leopold is considerably older. What does he want with a teenaged girl?
And while I’m here, let’s rep the history side. It would have been expected that Leopold consummate the marriage in order to make it legal. In many historical courts, this consummation was performed with witnesses present.
So best case scenario, a teenaged Regina watches the man she love die horribly in order to free her up for a marriage to a man old enough to be HER father, who doesn’t love or particularly care for her, and who commits marital rape in order to ensure the marriage is legal.
Worse case scenario, all of the above, AND there’s witnesses in the room watching this happen to her.
Regina isn’t Snow’s mother, she’s the woman Snow’s father forced into marriage and raped.
I haven’t seen anyone else bring this up, but it really struck me when I was watching the episode:
Sheriff Stilinski says to Scott at the scene of the car accident, ”They’re still here. They’re still here.” Obviously the Beserkers emerged immediately afterwards, and that may be…
There’s also the correlation to kanima!Jackson in Raving saying “they’re here”, and Stiles getting that narrow-eyes considering look.
I think this is an ongoing thing.
Scott, that is blood money. Seriously. Those people that died? That money has their blood on it.
You keep it? You are disgusting.
It’s not like the money is miraculous manna from heaven. We KNOW who it belongs to.
We know where it was taken from (The Hale Vault), and who it belongs to (Derek Hale). Blood money or not, it HAS an owner.
Here’s what chaps my ass. Derek doesn’t use it, and with 117 MILLION, he doesn’t NEED it.
If Scott were as Lawful Good as he’s always portrayed to be, why wouldn’t he return the money? That’s what a Lawful Good would do; the right thing, even if it costs them.
(However, since Derek is actually a good guy who obviously thinks the world of Scott, I can see Derek handling the bills. I don’t know that he’d say anything, so much as just handle them, because he’s an emotionally constipated soggy duckling, but he’d do it, because in a pack, nobody goes hungry if the others can help it, and wild wolves have been known to bring back food and provide for those temporarily unable to do so for themselves. There’s an analogy to be made there).
So why don’t they return the money to Derek, and then, if Scott were actually so humble, or as LG as we’re told (but not shown), why not ask for help?
I can see /Stiles/ keeping the money, because he’s never really portrayed as particularly ethical, but Werewolf Jesus really should be holding himself to some higher standards here.
(And don’t even get me started on Stiles’ Eichen House issues. I could write you a legal brief on all the reasons they have just cause to sue Eichen House for damages and every single brick in reparations. Seriously.)
Well butter my butt and call me a biscuit, they’re all romantic interests.
If one’s a coincidence, and two’s a pattern, what’s three?
WHO IS THE BENEFACTOR?
Our favorite duo!
Just spitballing here, but does anyone else notice that Stiles’ reflection almost perfectly matches the outline of the Benefactor figure?
He was the villain last season, is it possible the Nogitsune isn’t quite done with him yet?
He’s like, sleeping beauty. Or maybe more like Snow White.
It’s interesting that people are equating Derek with fairy tale princesses in this shot, because what comes to mind to me is Mary, Mother of Jesus.
My grandmother collected Madonna figurines (among other things), and while the majority were posed holding baby Jesus or with her hands steepled before her in prayer, the rest were posed like this.
It’s a common enough depiction that I kinda don’t know what to do with the parallels. I’ve seen several Mary Magdalens in the same pose but honestly could only look at so many religious icons before I got bored.
I think you’re on to something with this. I’m pretty sure S4 is making references to the Bible too. My thoughts aren’t really shaping into a whole meta yet, but I might post it anyway now you’ve posted this.
From what I remember of my Catchecism, the Holy Mother goes by many names.
With the Infant, she’s invoked as María, Madre de Dios. With her her hands folded in prayer, she becomes Madonna, Queen of Heaven.
With her hands crossed on her chest, however, she becomes María Dolorosa, Our Lady of Sorrows. In this guise, she represents the seven sorrows of her life, and more broadly, her sorrows for the wounded and lost.
Curiously, she is also the patron saint of the abused, especially those having experienced intimate partner abuse.
It’s certainly a little curious that Derek Hale is here arranged in one of the most recognizable motifs in Western religious iconography.
Stiles Stilinski, Lying and Werewolf Lie Detectors
- Stiles Stilinski is confident he can lie to a werewolf and/or tell one that his entire family is dead
- Stiles Stilinski can watch another werewolf lie and not give off any…
That worried me as well!
I mean, if he was aware, and is still capable of seeming so untroubled by it, then I wonder if he’s sort of already going darker.
And let’s remember, Stiles is plenty dark already. He comes up with the idea of going into the woods to find half a body as early as the first episode. This isn’t a particularly ethically-equipped character.
So a Stiles who has had a millennia-old chaos spirit living in his head for however many months might be considerably darker after the fact.
I think we’re going to see a Stiles who might well wonder why he’s alive at all later on in the season. I mean, that clip where he gets a gun placed to his forehead? He doesn’t seem too shook-up by that. Maybe that’s because he thinks he deserves it?
