|Teen Wolf - fandom has issues...
||[Aug. 3rd, 2014|03:02 am]
It's too late right now to write a whole Teen Wolf post but I just wanted to share this:
THIS META is wonderful. It's not very essay-y, there's a lot of emotion, but it reads like a lot of what I feel when it comes to female characters in this fandom and fandom itself.
I LOVE Lydia. Period. She deserves so much more shipping than she gets. (I feel like she would if Sterek didn't take over fandom. Someone explain this ship to me, seriously.)
I actually really, really like Kate. She was freakin' badass. Yea...she got carried away in her crusade against Derek et al, but she doesn't deserve the fraction of the hate she seems to get. She was raised to hunt werewolves. By Gerard (who's a real creep). And, honestly, look at all the damage werewolves have objectively done or could have done (if not stopped by Scott and co.) in this show. THERE'S A REASON WHY THERE ARE WEREWOLF HUNTERS.
Victoria went a bit psycho with trying to kill Scott. BUT. She was protecting her daughter, or at least she thought she was. Seriously.
I don't have any super strong feelings about Allison but, honestly, the times when she picks up that bow and goes "hunting" are some of my favorites. (I want Chris and Allison go hunting some dangerous werewolves fic <3) And, seriously, DEREK BASICALLY KILLED HER MOM. How could you NOT understand why she wanted him dead?
Just basically...fandom confuses me sometimes. I love it, but it confuses me.
