Congratu-fucking-lations to Clever TV (whatever the fuck that is), Jeff Davis and the Teen Wolf Cast who were involved in that frankly ridiculous and mean display of reading aloud snippets of fanfiction.
Just think about what you did there. You took three fanfictions, small snippets from them and took them out of the context of a whole story. And then you went on to ridicule them. So now there are three people out there who are feeling shit about themselves and about their writing.
What if those were the first stories for these writers? What if these were young people who just had their confidence dashed? What if it took all of their courage to post these stories, hoping that someone, anyone, would like them, only to have their work read aloud, out of context, by people who were obviously just waiting for them to be bad?
I hope you are all really proud of yourselves. You may have just made someone vow never to try to write again, which means that they won’t ever improve on their writing because EVERYONE improves their writing over time, but you’ve taken that away from them. Some great piece of literature may never be written now, we’ll never know.
We are your fans. We are what gives the show ratings. We are who make the hype for your show, even though it is declining in quality. And you mock us? You take something that has been happening for as long as there have been works for people to write about and shit all over it. Fanfiction should be heralded, not made fun of.
THIS FUCKING SHOW IS BASICALLY FANFICTION OF A MOTHER FUCKING 80’S MOVIE STARRING MICHAEL J. FOX. ARE YOU KIDDING ME WITH THIS RIGHT NOW????
I swear to God, I am so sick of being made fun of by these people for enjoying their content. I get to enjoy it in whatever way I choose and you shouldn’t be able to make fun of me for it. You shouldn’t be calling me sick and twisted for liking a non canon pairing or telling me I’m watching it for the wrong reasons. You shouldn’t be downplaying the popularity of one of my ships in the “real world”, only to turn around and play all over that apparently only Tumblr popular ship to get ratings. You shouldn’t be making fun of me for writing fanfiction and taking the show in directions you never would and/or could.
We are fans. We are the power behind your show. Do you know how many shows get axed because they’re not popular enough? You are popular because of us. And what do you do? You put us down all the time for being fans of your show and being creative about it, being passionate about it. Well guess what, you keep going the way you’re going and no one’s going to make you one of the highest producers of fanworks anymore, that’s a pretty huge thing in this day and age. People are going to stop tuning in and there go your ratings. People are going to be so disenchanted by you making fun of us for one thing or another and they’re not going to tune in to any future works of yours in case it happens again.
Just stop. Stop shitting all over your fans. We love this show, we love these people, and you’re making it so hard for us to continue to love you.
*sighs deeply but is not surprised this happened*
Do you know what two things I find well and truly bitterly amusing?
First: one of the fics mocked was a finalist in Teen Wolf’s official fanfic contest back in 2012.
Second: LESS THAN A WEEK AGO MTV LAUNCHED THE COLLECTIVE.
So, with that in mind, dear mtv and teenwolf powers that be, please explain to us why exactly we should trust you with our fanworks.
My reaction to Simon Monroe after 2x01:Who the fuck is this weirdo
My reaction to Simon Monroe after 2x05:HOLY SHIT I LOVE YOU I LOVE YOU I WILL DIE FOR YOU COME TO MY BOSOM AND LET ME PROTECT YOU FROM ALL OF THE BAD THINGS AND FILL YOUR LIFE WITH RAINBOWS AND PUPPIES AND UGLY JUMPERS FOR ALWAYS
Because it isn’t. Stiles and Derek are not in a relationship. They have a mutual understanding of each other. They also care about one another. Massive difference from the beginning when they hated each other’s guts. Stiles wanted him dead and Derek found him irritating as hell. Anything abusive is done through friendship only. His head to a steering wheel. Why? Stiles flaunted Derek’s body in front of Danny to get him to do what they wanted. Derek punching Stiles hand hard. Why? Stiles was goading him to show his strength and he did. Young!Derek pushing him up against a wall. Why? Because he didn’t know him and didn’t trust him.
Things have changed. Derek searched for days and nights for Stiles. Stiles bargained for Derek to get him back and protected him when he was young again. If they ever did get into a relationship, Derek would never ever hurt Stiles. Ever. He’d kill anyone who’d touch him.
Stiles and Malia however is abusive. There’s different kinds of abuse. There’s physical, mental, emotional, all different kinds to belittle and hurt your partner. Malia sneaks into his bedroom every night, without permission, and forces him to be the little spoon. That’s not right behaviour. It’s actually very, very, creepy without permission. Too Twilight in my opinion.
The scratches on his back. It doesn’t matter if they’re from rough sex or making out, he didn’t like them. He complained to Scott about them. Malia growls and lashes out at him like a wild animal, which she is, and she shouldn’t be in an relationship at all if she’s like that. It’s unhealthy.
Shelley interviewed here and said Malia would punch Stiles to show she loves him. Borderline an abusive relationship. Punching the one you love and then apologising afterwards. “Oh it’s okay hunny, I know it won’t happen again”
Don’t try and tell me Stiles/Malia isn’t abusive and twisted. Sick of silly little girls and boys being blind to this.
