It’s really weird trying to explain the differences between Catholicism and other branches of Christianity to people who aren’t religious because it ultimately ends up, “Well this is Catholic, this is Catholic classic, this is Catholic-lite, this is diet Catholic, this is new taste less calories not as popular Catholic, and this is I can’t believe it’s not Catholic.”
it’s hilarious how cora was written as erica’s replacement with pretty much the same character sheet and like the writers just seem really concerned with pairing stiles off with a girl
Do you know what I just realized? The Teen Wolf writers are gross.
Oh wait, I realized that ages ago.
1. Erica (Derek’s beta) was supposed to be Stiles’s love interest, but they realized the chemistry wasn’t there, or saw the chemistry with Erica and Boyd…I don’t remember the reason, but they decided not to go that direction.
2. Cora (Derek’s sister) was a direct Erica replacement and was supposed to be Stiles’s love interest. Cora, in addition to being an Erica replacement, was basically created as a female Derek (Stiles points out their similarities MULTIPLE TIMES) who would therefore be fully prepared for a relationship with Stiles after a few exchanges. Derek, however, being male, doesn’t count regardless of even more chemistry-charged interactions. Because guys can’t like guys unless it’s explicitly stated and triple-signed in front of witnesses. A guy and a girl on screen, though, automatically equals romance-in-the-making. Nevermind that Cora had more palpable chemistry with Lydia than with Stiles. Stiles’s primary romantic moment with Cora? Giving her mouth-to-mouth while she was dying and unconscious.
3. Malia (Derek’s cousin) is a replacement for Cora/Erica and finally gets to be the love interest who has sex with Stiles after punching him in the face and barely talking to him.
They are DETERMINED to make Stiles the leading romantic role at this point, which (a) doesn’t even make sense for his character and (b) necessitates a constant stream of ladies making out with him. They’re also determined to keep writing interchangeable female characters whose primary role is to be the love interest.
I am so fucking pissed off at the show at this point, and just….tired of it. Really exhausted by continuing to care about it and hoping that it can do better. I’m also never not going to be angry about them teasing Stiles as bisexual since early in season 1, talking about the importance of bisexual visibility and promising it was something they cared about, setting up his bisexuality as “a spoiler,” giving us a “funny” exchange with Caitlin in 3B about whether he liked guys, and then completely ignoring that aspect of his character because a wink at the camera was sufficient and it’s more important for him to have sex with the latest Hale-female.
I gave the writers the benefit of the doubt after the Caitlin scene, because I had the stupid optimism to hope they were actually taking it somewhere. Too bad this show’s shitty at character development and likes to set up the canonical romances in the most problematic scenarios possible.
#yo man#she punched him in the face and they made out in a mental asylum#but nooo that’s cute and Sterek is gross and CANNOT HAPPEN ON SCREEN#despite the fact they keep CONTINUOUSLY trying to recreate the Sterek dynamic#only with a girl#there’s the snarky violent sarcastic edge thing#someone he can argue with and have banter with#but zero chemistry and UST#and then the one where there are lingering looks and ~possibility#it’s like… oh no we can’t explore that#we can’t try that#we can’t possibly even MAYBE //ATTEMPT// TO DO IT#for no reason#there is //no// actual reason holding us back about Sterek#we just didn’t think of it first#so instead we’re gonna WRITE IN FEMALE CHARACTERS#//NEW// ONES#TO HAVE THE SAME DYNAMIC#THEN PUSH SEX ON STILES#just to keep Sterek out of the picture#because it wasn’t planned#but have new characters JUST to do the exact same thing???#i’m???#//stop trying to recreate the ship and try the one you started with//#the one that works and would be great and ACTUALLY BE ORIGINAL#because wow gosh girl and boy don’t really like each other except now they do#original#as opposed to //everything// we’ve seen and been through with Sterek#fml Stiles and Derek would have been fantastic man#fuck you writers okay bye (felicitysmock)

Fudge recipe on a headstone
I feel like I should make this just to be able to say a dead person taught me how to make it. Maybe I’ll do it for Halloween.
I desperately hope that she spent her entire life telling people that they could have her fudge recipe “over my dead body.”
That last comment is absolutely worth reblogging.
