FAVOURITE TV CHARACTERS → Stiles Stilinski (Teen Wolf)
“Well I shouldn’t say I told you so, ‘cause it’s not strong enough. How about, I’m always right, and you should listen to whatever I have to say, and never disagree ever for the sake of your wolvlihood.”
Teen Wolf: It’s a show about a 20-something greaser and the teenagers that harass him.
Idea by Guzu.
Sterek fandom, I made you a present during Tumblr Maintenance.
You know, I saw her lying in that hospital slowly dying… I thought how the hell am I suppose to raise this stupid kid on my own?
Stiles isn’t angry or shocked. He’s nervous and exposed and a little embarrassed. But he’s not angry or shocked. It’s like, he wishes his father wasn’t making a scene, but at the same time, he feels like he deserves it. He believes that his father is speaking the truth, and while it makes his eyes well up with tears, he’s not balking or fighting back. He’s just taking it, because it’s everything he thinks he deserves. It’s nothing he hasn’t heard before. It’s nothing he hasn’t told himself, in his head, again and again.
I find this scene so difficult to watch. It upsets me more than anything else that happens on Teen Wolf.
Both actors are nailing it too, which makes it even harder.
And then the director, right after this, cuts to a group of kids just watching him, with pity and a little disgust. O’Brien plays it beautifully, but it’s not just him. It’s totally the concept—This isn’t his worst nightmare because his father hating him is inconceivable. His worst nightmare is having the truth spilled out in front of all these people, the people he’s worked so hard to fool. There’s no way he’s getting his mask all the way back, not after this. And then they cut to the people staring, none of whom are surprised. Like “Yeah, that makes sense.” Or “Is that Stilinski? I should have known.”
And then at the end, when he snaps out of it, the first thing he does is check the surroundings, see that no one’s looking, and get back to normal.
