Stephen Colbert wants to talk to you about your boyfriend.
When Colbert sat down for Rookie’s “Ask A Grown Man” segment, he did so as himself, instead of the brash character he plays on his show.
WE’VE GOT A 2319
calicokat-teenwolf I made it a new post because I got a bit carried away :P the previous comment while tired and waiting for dinner, I’m not surprised it got messy >.<
I’ll write first and read yours second, okay? okay.
dead/time travelling stiles or dead AND time travelling stiles?
that stiles recognised derek at first glimpse despite having changed quite a lot, as most teens to as they go into their twenties, but not laura who, being older, shouldn’t have changed as much, means it’s more likely he saw derek specifically before the fire. this made me think that if these pictures are intentional it might have been from being the same or similar age in 2006.
which brings us to how that happened in the first place. we’ve suspected on and off that stiles died before the tub sacrifices, either in the car or even earlier. we’ve talked about claudia drowning him due to her dementia or it involving the nemeton somehow, but with this I’m beginning to suspect it’s actually the opposite:
we don’t know much about stiles and the sheriff. we know their last name and that they live in beacon hills, that melissa knew john at least a little (perhaps professionally) and that stiles knew of scott by the time agent mccall left. melissa had to look into claudia’s journals to see what symptoms she had, she didn’t know them from having seen it firsthand. what if claudia didn’t sacrifice stiles or attempt/succeed to murder him due to being ill, but sacrificed herself to bring back stiles after he, at 17-16 in 2006, died from drowning?
I’ve talked about stiles being a stile a lot but I always assumed it was because he brought people back over what’s assumed to be an uncrossable barrier, as opposed to lydia signalling their departure, but this made me think what if it’s because he’s already crossed over and back again?
doing it would have taken her time. bringing stiles back would have taken a lot. and people would’ve noticed. what I can imagine happened is that claudia found a way after years of searching, brought stiles back younger somehow, healthy and alive, and that the deal included retconning everyone so nobody would think something was up. to even the balance for saving her son’s life and messing with people’s memories she gave both her memory and her life. they could’ve gone with anything- cancer, accident, whatever, but they went with a form of dementia that’s not even lethal in itself. it seemed like such a weird pick until now.
it should also be noted that the people closest involved with the nemeton, if that’s how claudia got stiles back, are also the ones shown most wary of stiles. it’s like they know something. which I am implying that they do. ;P
and I think, deep down, both derek, stiles and the sheriff know. derek should remember stiles, right? if stiles knew his face so well he could tell that quickly, he should at least recognize him. but he doesn’t, as far as we know.
the sheriff makes offhanded comments about time travel and when stiles gets him drunk he says he misses talking to stiles and claudia, and he says it like he’s talking to a ghost. it’s not a why don’t we talk anymore but a why aren’t you here so I can talk to you. just like when stiles talks about drowning with morrell the words have emotion behind it that doesn’t quite make sense for how they’re used.
tl;dr- I think stiles drowned in his teens in 2006, was brought back at the cost of claudia’s life and sanity and that it’s buried somewhere deep in his mind.
*goes to read your post*
okay, so another thing that has always bothered me is how matt talked about jackson as his fury when jackson really wasn’t. the furies drove people insane to make them pay for killing their own family, the most famous case being orestes who was ordered by the gods to (unwillingly) kill his mother to avenge his dad, and was hunted by the furies for it. so unless matt was the child of entire swim team + coach lahey I can’t see how he made that connection, out of all of them.
unless it was for us to see much later when we find out about stiles drowning. this does speak a little for claudia maybe unwillingly killing a young stiles, stiles being brought back and claudia was driven out of her mind (kind of) and to death as punishment.
whether he was sacrificed for the nemeton or brought back via it it still connects him to it, and while I don’t think he controls it, I think the nemeton favours him. the question is why, and how the initial contact was established.
For my part, this is all just touching around fleshing out ideas atm. I’m trying to figure out how all this top to bottom fits together into an ordered narrative…but then it goes back to the problem of time itself.
at first I thought jeff bringing up orestes was about derek being forced to kill peter to avenge laura, different family relationships, similar story; peter kills laura to get his revenge, derek ends up between a rock and a burning homocidal alpha and has to kill peter with much hesitation. but then on the other hand, no furies after that. I think it is, if it was intentional, not a literal thing but simply a reoccurring theme; it’s not necessarily orestes, clytemnestra and the furies but people killing their own flesh and blood/carrying the blame for it and getting it back tenfold.
I dunno if stiles harbours some kind of resentment against melissa, if anything I’ve gotten the vibe that he liked her and she (in s1 at least) tolerated him. cares much more about him now, yes, but it started out with “I didn’t give you a key” etc. I also think the conversation between the nogitsune and melissa isn’t about mccall. it’s very obvious how much stiles dislikes mccall and I can’t see why he’d figure scott would hate melissa for forcing mccall out of their lives when stiles himself tries to shield scott from him. I keep thinking the conversation is about claudia somehow, like melissa actively helping claudia die (with the sheriff’s permission) and stiles overhearing a conversation about it, but not telling scott because he knows scott wouldn’t look at her the same way again.
that could also be what makes scott become a more active player in the end; if his mother, who’s probably the most saintly person on the show, can cause someone’s death for the sake of something good, then so can he.
as amazing as that thought is (and it really is, holy crap o.O) I’m not sure I think it’s jeff’s MO? scott trusts what he can see and knows, doesn’t trust other people’s gut instincts unless they can back it up, he just doesn’t seem like the type of character to be written as a spiritual satellite dish, if that wording makes sense? (I’ve been awake for 24 h, my brain is fried)
I suspect people being unable to get through to scott is a metaphor for how people rarely get through to him in real life, especially when it’s really vital.
also derek smashing his phone because allison called and scott acting like a kid afterward is a pretty accurate metaphor for their relationship tbh.
but the part about dead bodies of water could absolutely be foreshadowing for something, especially with stiles + water and still water and the roles the two have played since ep 1.
today is bi visibility day. as such, bisexual people will be completely visible for the next 24 hours. this is a bad day to engage in bank heists, ghost impersonations, covert operations for vague yet menacing government agencies, and other common bisexual hobbies that rely upon our powers of invisibility.

As the showrunner of “Teen Wolf,” Jeff Davis is the last word when it comes to many of the creative decisions needed to keep the series going strong. Every day Jeff is bombarded with questions from every department head including Barabara Vazquez, seen above, our wonderful costume designer. On this particular day, Barbara, Jeff and Arden were discussing Kira’s wardrobe for episode 411, specifically for Scott and Kira’s date at Derek’s loft. Knowing that Scott and Kira would fight Kate and a Berserker later in the episode, they were debating, along with Joe Genier, our executive producer, Ian Stokes, Ian’s dog Nibbles and Damon Jackson, whether or not Kira should wear her awesome leather jacket during the date. The debate revolved around the need for Kira to wear the jacket during the fight with Kate and the Berserker so Arden and her stunt double would be able to hide the pads needed for their protection. Should Kira take off her jacket during the date? That would make the date with Scott more romantic. But if she does take off the jacket, what’s a believable reason for Kira to pull the jacket back on when the fight begins? Questions like these are the driving force behind every meeting that Jeff has throughout the day.
But for Jeff, the two most important questions are always 1) How does this help the story? and 2) Can it be better?
When these two questions are thoroughly considered and answered, we know that “Teen Wolf” is on the right track for producing another great episode.
For people who say that meta writers overthink things too much.
this is the funniest thing i’ve seen all day
I hit words at random on iOS 8’s new predictive text feature so I could see what type of sentence my phone thinks I’m likely to say, and
signofzeta the ncr took over. I’m thinking of making a new one and just kill everything, I’m a little bummed I didn’t get to the dude that takes you to Caesar :P
