Jordan Parrish disarming a bomb (ﾉ◕ヮ◕)ﾉ*:･ﾟ
Look at this motherfucker right here. The irony of him wearing a fucking cauldron of a helmet when he’s evidently got nothing inside it to shield, since he’s crouching over the bomb wearing slacks for protection like yeah, I don’t have anything of importance there, nothing like femoral arteries or lower intestines. Just my huge ass balls.
Motherfucking thumbs up asshole.
Teen Wolf. What the fuck?
Well, if I get blown up, at least my head will be in one piece.
Stiles being an asshole over actual problems that are a huge struggle for people. I like Stiles, but lately I’ve been annoyed with how he’s been written. Poking fun at the kid who’s just been told he has a mental disorder isn’t funny, i don’t see how in any way that would be funny.
Or when Isaac spoke about abuse, which scars you forever by the way. Memories stay with you forever
after ethan says the twins were abused by their old pack:
it doesn’t make any sense to me that stiles would make comments like this.i always thought of him as a caring character. & he’s suffered mental illness recently why would he mock liam?
He’s always been like that, though. Like—okay, maybe you don’t like that aspect of his character and yes, there’s a lot of inconsistent writing, but this isn’t one of those things.
The thing is, the thing that I feel like a lot of people like to kind of ignore when it comes to Stiles, is he’s a little bit of a sociopath and maybe also a little bit of a psychopath. I don’t have a degree in psychology so I can’t really break down the difference between the two, especially since they have a lot of crossover, but I find it incredibly likely that Stiles has a combination of physical dysfunction in his brain and emotional-slash-mental trauma, most likely from his mother’s death and being in the room with her when it happened, that has completely skewed his ability to operate on a healthy, normal social level.
I truly and legitimately believe that Stiles has a fundamental difficulty, if not actual inability, to see other human beings as worthy of his empathy from the moment he meets them. I think he’s a misanthrope at heart, and mostly sees human beings as annoyances. He has to learn to care about each person individually. Not that he can’t or doesn’t care about some people, because he very clearly does, but he also has a pre-established tendency to cling very tightly to the people he does care about, very likely to an unhealthy level. Stiles doesn’t really do casual friends (most people do). He has very close friends or not at all. This is in part because he’s that guy. I hate to say it because he’s the fandom’s darling but Stiles is one hundred percent the guy who would give you creepy vibes if he went to your high school. He’s a publicly suspected criminal (felon? I haven’t looked up whether it’s a felony or not but I presume that kidnapping is a felony) with a restraint order against him, which we obviously saw Jackson didn’t mind mentioning at the drop of a hat. He looks at high glossy photos of graphic murders in the middle of Econ class.
Let me repeat that:
He looks at high glossy photos of graphic murders in the middle of class.
It isn’t that he doesn’t understand that these things violate social mores. He’s too smart for that. It’s that he doesn’t care. He has to learn to care with each new situation and each new individual. He often fakes caring because he knows Scott cares. Go back through the series and look at how many times Stiles does the right thing because Scott directly asked him to. Scott is Stiles’ conscience. I am fairly convinced in most situations, if Stiles has an internal conscience at all he simply doesn’t give a shit about it and stopped listening a long time ago.
He reacts to stress by running his mouth. When he’s in a high-stress situation, the first thing that goes is his give-a-damn about whether or not he’s hurting peoples’ feelings. He says what he thinks needs to be said, or what’s on his mind, and it occurs to him after he’s said it that maybe it was over the line. He even does this to Scott in the first season. The very first season, to his very best friend, one of the few people in the show we have been given reason to believe Stiles does legitimately care about.
Stiles makes these comments because he does not care that he’s hurting people or poking at old scars. He knows they’re effective because he shares those scars. It’s completely hypocritical of him, too, because I guarantee you if the tables were turned and someone was speaking in that way to him he’d take it badly. (Whether I think he’d shut down and collapse into himself or lash out violently depends on a lot of variables).
In short: he’s Sherlock Holmes, he’s not John Watson. He cares about very few people, deeply, and does things because they want him to, and he cares about solving puzzles for the sake of solving puzzles. He’s not an inherently caring character. Stiles has to work to care, and requires people to justify to him their worthiness of his caring, and yes, that’s a terrible thing for him to do.
let’s clear a few things up first:
the difference between sociopath and psychopath is, basically, none. whatsoever. those who believe psychopathy is purely something you become because of nurture say sociopath, nature say psychopath. the general consensus is that it’s a mix between the two, so most will use psychopath. it’s kind of like justin bieber thanking not only god, but also jesus.
peter would be classified as a psychopath from what has been shown on the show, not too sure kate would cut it by the psychopathy checklist. stiles has the same amount of psychopathic traits the average person has (about 4-5 points, if I remember correctly). the fact that he does cling to people, has a group of people he cares deeply about is a clear sign he’s no psychopath. he can be a manipulative little shit, but it’s not done for personal gain, like peter or gerard.
now, bullshit, humour and sass has always been stiles’ go-to defence mechanism, and that’s just what it is; a defence mechanism. he has a handful of people he cares about because the loss of his mom taught him loss happens to those who care, not those being cared of. funnily enough, his behaviour almost mirrors jackson’s a bit. I don’t know if that’s intentional or not.
in the scene with isaac, think about what just happened before stiles makes that comment- they’re talking about how the sacrifice is affecting them, isaac makes a comment about people going through what they go through being locked up in asylums and stiles asks him to be helpful and isaac says what’s in the gifs above. stiles is frustrated and, as we know now, scared out of mind. it’s a defence mechanism.
the thing with ethan happens right after boyd has died. stiles is being an asshole, yes, but it’s most likely because he’s pissed off. this is, weirdly enough, a good sign- normally erica and boyd wouldn’t have been close enough for stiles to give a shit, yet he does.
stiles is being incredibly insensitive with liam, yes, but his criticism is directed at scott, not liam. basically everyone but his dad and melissa is being targeted by an assassin club, he doesn’t have time for a newly bitten beta who already has anger issues, and I think that’s mainly where all the attitude is coming from. stiles was in a similar place and made a self-sacrificial decision to avoid hurting others, liam stops taking his meds so he can play lacrosse. (and on a side note, I wonder wtf his doctor of a stepdad is thinking?)
the nogitsune definitely changed stiles. I don’t know how getting your driver’s license is everywhere else but in sweden you have this crash test thing where the entire meaning with the 4-something hours you’re there is to experience what it’s like to lose the grip of the road or run into something (usually snow) so you won’t panic if it happens in real life. scott is so scared of becoming peter he might panic and flip his car, so to speak. stiles’ car has already been flipped, rolled down a hill and set on fire. whatever happens, he’s been there. so yeah, stiles “ohmygod is that brain matter” stilinski from 3a is now okay with looking at crime scene photos because he’s already seen worse, he’s been desensitised (which is easier than you might think) and he’s working against the clock to keep someone from dying while trying to maintain his grades. I’ve looked at worse pictures for less, to be honest with you.
tl;dr- being specific with who you consider your closest doesn’t make you a psychopath, neither does being an asshole. the nogitsune has made stiles meaner, but he’s still no peter. it’s not about who stiles deems worthy but who he considers worth caring about when he’ll end up losing them eventually anyway.
I really don’t like the Stiles is a sociopath meta that’s always flying around. Stiles isn’t a sociopath or a psychopath, he’s just an asshole sometimes who uses super inappropriate jokes as a defense mechanism. Some of those jokes don’t sit well (because they’re super not chill) but that’s more of a matter of shitty writing than anything.
I just don’t get the characterization some of this fandom falls back on. Stiles is a scared teenaged boy, not a socio/psychopath. Look at the contrast between Stiles and the Nogitsune in 3B. We could tell when Stiles was back because there was so much fear and confusion in his expression, and it was the same expression the Nogitsune used to trick everyone else because it was so recognizably him.
Teen Wolf has already given us a socio/psychopath high schooler - Matt - and Stiles butted heads with him constantly because underneath the defensive gruff Stiles is a Mini Sheriff. He’s the guy trying to put the puzzles together in time, trying to help Scott help others and I don’t think he’d ever be able to go through with any of his threats to kill the people that cause them problems. It’s a running joke and we aren’t meant to look that far into it. It’s like lacrosse - it’s supposed to remind us of season one, only now we take it in a different context because of the Nogitsune using Stiles’ body in 3B. Same thing goes for the pictures in class. It’s a running joke that Coach is always catching him doing weird shit? And Beacon Hills High is so messed up he can’t even find it in himself to care anymore?
What is this obsession with morphing Stiles into this Dark Knight, Dexter Morgan, ‘I love murder but it’s for the greater good’ tomfuckery?????
The issue is partly that most people have no fucking clue what socio/psychopathy is. And this can be straight up immediately proven in the fact that most people think that sociopathy and psychopathy are two different things. They aren’t.
This is also a larger trope found throughout fandom, the “fan favorite sociopath” is something you can find in a lot of fandoms and it’s really annoying, and is a pretty unimaginative and limting way of interpreting characters. Sherlock Holmes isn’t a sociopath. Stiles isn’t a sociopath. HOLY SHIT I’VE EVEN SEEN PEOPLE TRY TO SAY THAT TONY STARK IS A SOCIOPATH. Talk about misinterpreting a character…
Look y’all, I’m not in Teen Wolf fandom anymore, I cop to that. BUT THIS is a total shit show.
Fandom belongs to FANS and should not EVER be on a website that the powers that be create for their own purposes or in the control of a corporate sponsor (.mtv is not cute). Placing work on the website, ADMITTING to the desire to move fandom into an area where they have more control and removing the interaction fans have with each other to a space in which 1. you don’t hold the rights to your work and standards are set not by the community but the powers that be and 2. you’re removed from the traditions of fanspace is totally gross and inappropriate on their part. They aren’t the first ones to try this bullshit either, they’re just cloaking it in different words.
Please don’t fall for this and if you DO and are curious about it please carefully read the TOS for the site you are signing up for and learn about how they can and will use your content for profit in the future. Protect yourself, protect your community. Ultimately, it’s your choice but it should always be YOUR choice and YOUR experience and YOUR fandom. Bringing it out of the realm of fans, where you didn’t create the website, you didn’t make the rules, you can’t do whatever the fuck you want, is not okay. It’s not what fandom is about. Teen Wolf PTB aren’t PART of fandom. You are.
Katt Williams on Dave Chappelle: “But Dave Chappelle was decapitated in front of us. And until we deal that. Until we deal with the fact that a devout Muslim was accused of being a crackhead. And until we establish the fact that they said he went to Africa to smoke cocaine when we know they don’t have running water and food over there. When they don’t have paved roads over there. You saying he flew past Chicago and Miami and LA and New York and Detroit, you saying he went past Cleveland and Fort Pierce, Florida, and he went past Okeechobee and Oakland, you saying he went all the way to another country where they not eating? You talking about somebody who has a wife and children, five children, and lives on a farm, he doesn’t live here in Hollywood. You saying you convince people that person was an insane crackhead? And he hasn’t been on movies and TV for eight years, is that correct? Ok then don’t tell me about what you wanna tell me, I just watched you decapitate him in front of me… Then when he made 500 million dollars, even though his contract said he was supposed to get half of it, they said he made too much for the contract to be valid, so we’ll offer you 10% of what you made. You mean he made 500 million and they offered him 50? Yes. And he said, “what do you think my fans are gonna say? When they find out you offered me 10% of what I made you.” And they said, “your fans will believe that you’re a crazy crackhead by the time you get home. And my nigga got on a flight in LA and by the time he got to Ohio it was so. And eight years later he hasn’t been in a movie or television and is just now trying to do his real comeback in Radio City Music Hall. It’s bees like that sometimes.”
White supremacy is meticulous, and people think shit be happening by coincidence. This has pissed me the fuck off.
The real story. Same racism he made fun of blocked him from credibility in the entertainment business.
in his Kanye Nest
when he wakes up he’s going to be his kanye best
This is the tale of Kanye West, who is snuggled in his Kanye Nest, having himself a Kanye Rest, for he must be at his Kanye Best, before he’s off on a Kanye Quest, where he’ll be put to the Kanye Test, in hopes to retrieve the Kanye Chest that is distinctly marked with the Kanye Crest, He shall return to the Kanye Nest and have himself a Kanye Fest, where he will welcome many Kanye Guests, but first he must be rid of Kanye Pests, before he can put on his Kanye Vest and dance at the party with such Kanye Zest.
did you just
this sounds like the intro theme song to a children’s show about kanye west going on adventures and respecting the sanctity of nap time
