Ships. With Werewolves.  
Since Teen Wolf starts back up tonight, I thought now would be a good time to put up this post about shippy-ness on this show. Honestly, I could pretty much pair anyone with anyone on Teen Wolf. I mean, give me a pairing and I could make a valid argument for that ship. And in general, yes, I am a multi-shipper and such, but this show, man…no wonder the fandom took off like a shot out the gate. The possibilities are endless and the chemistry abounds all over the fucking place.

So let’s go with the most obvious…for me at least.

Derek/Jackson….yeah, I ship that. In a weird bdsm kind of way, which honestly, with his need to control everything, might be good for Jackson. It was the way Jackson swallowed hard every time he tried to stare Derek down and the way he was all, “I don’t belong to you just cuz you turned me,” and Derek was pretty bent on showing Jackson just how very much he does belong to him and the power dynamics and the control and the...yeah, it’s just good for me. But more importantly, it would be good for Jackson. If anyone needs to feel like he belongs to something, it’s Jackson.

Derek/Scott...I see some serious relationship metaphors going on for Derek/Scott and though Scott does nothing for me, I still totally like the scenario where they were dating in s1 and then they broke up and s2 is all angst between them. It's all very ‘ex-boyfriend’. Everything is about Derek trying to get Scott back and Scott not wanting to go back but he can’t not come when Derek calls and omg, the fic almost writes itself.

Derek/Stiles...yes, I am in this fandom, I ship that. I totally blame Tyler for it. Here’s my theory: Derek is suppose to be all ‘grrr’ with Stiles and constantly like ‘FML, I can’t believe this kid is going to save us’. But there is always this underlying current of affection, amusement, a little tiny curving upwards of the corner of his mouth whenever Stiles is around...and I swear, its fucking Tyler Hoechlin not being able to be all alpha-growly whenever he does a scene with Dylan. I think all that affection that runs under everything between Derek and Stiles is just Tyler being amused as fuck by everything Dylan does. Which adds a total layer to the Derek/Stiles relationship that probably isn’t there on paper but is totally there on screen.

Danny/Stiles...the ship I think I love the most, though I am having a harder time coming up with fic ideas for it. First of all, Danny, okay. Just Danny. Draw a heart around it. But also, have you ever watched Danny in the background of every scene Stiles is in? Stiles and Scott, sitting at their desks, talking to each other about werewolf blahblahblah, and in the background is Danny with this stupid smirk on his face, staring at them. He seems to do most scenes as if he is listening in on Stiles’ conversations. It plays off as Danny always watching everything Stiles does and constantly having a grin on his face whenever Stiles is within range of him. Danny has a stupid crush on Stiles, okay? Which may again just be that no actor can keep a straight face around Dylan O’Brien, but still...I ship this so hard.

Stiles/Lydia...That scene at the end of season one at the dance, followed by Stiles staring down the Alpha for her? Yeah, that sold me right there. Idk if the show will go there this season, but I hope for poor Stiles' sake they don't drag this on for too long. I do love Jackson, but I think Stiles would be so damn good for Lydia and she deserves it.

Also - just because I love them - let’s see some Mrs. McCall/Sheriff Stilinski on the show at some point, please? Please? Just not before I finish my fic.

Speaking of fic and totally off-topic from ‘ships...I am writing this Teen Wolf fic. Mrs. McCall is a major presence throughout it. I’ve written 5,000 words of this story, during which I was calling her ‘Karen’. That is not her name. Her name is Melissa. Uh. Then, I’m watching The Walking Dead. This woman has this major scene and I think, “Is that Teen Wolf mom? No. Although...they both do film in Georgia.” So I look it up. It was her! She was in like four episodes - (one of the Governor’s people) - and her character’s name? Karen. I must have subconsciously realized it was her but then it came out as her Teen Wolf character being named Karen in my fic...idk, it amused me.

And now, t-minus a few hours to the third season premiere!

SHIP ALL THE SHIPS.

110%. Really, the Teen Wolf cast must just have amazing chemistry oozing from their pores because there is no pairing that could go canon on the show that would even make me blink - I'd buy all the ships!

(Though Peter/Lydia gives me the creepy crawlies. Maybe not all the ships.)

It gives me the creepy crawlies as well (Peter does in general, despite also being insanely sexy, idek) but I would still totally believe it if it happened - they are beautiful together in a sick twisted way.

This makes so much sense. Because Tyler is such a Dylan fanboy, it's adorable.

First of all, Danny, okay. Just Danny. Draw a heart around it.

DANNY. 'Nuff said.

I love your reasoning behind all of these! I also ship Erica/Stiles because I love Erica and because she used to have a crush on him and now kind of hates him a bit because he never noticed. Two kids who people didn't notice, crushing on someone who was oblivious. I like it.

I can't wait for you to finish your fic. And if you ever need any help, I am always available. I may suck at timely replies, but I'm totally here! :p

LOL Yes, this. I was just rewatching some of season one not to long ago and I can't even remember what scene it was, but I could actually see Tyler's mouth start to turn upwards in a smile and instead he turned it into a scowl at Stiles and I was like, "I saw that!" and now I am convinced that my theory is correct.

DANNY. 'Nuff said.

Right? I am worried though - Danny wasn't in the first episode and it occurred to me that now there is no Jackson so will there be need for Jackson's BFF? It's either going to be bad in that they don't have anything for Danny to do so they don't use him at all or even have him on the show, or it's going to be the best thing that ever happened because they'll have to find a new way to use him which likely means bringing him into the group, at least a little. But like if my dream comes true where Danny seeks out a new best friend in Stiles, then holy mother of god, I will die.

ITwo kids who people didn't notice, crushing on someone who was oblivious.

OH. Shit. Well, you just sold me. I actually think Stiles/Erica might go canon this season. Possibly? And I am more than okay with that. Neither Stiles nor Lydia are at a place right now where they should be getting together. If they did, it just wouldn't work for either one of them at all and it would end up ruining the whole thing. But Stiles/Erica? They are both at the right place to be with each other - the invisible kids in the groups, Though I got the impression she was with Boyd now but I do think they could easily go canon on Erica/.Stiles and have it work really well. I hope they do, at any rate.

I can't wait for you to finish your fic. And if you ever need any help, I am always available. I may suck at timely replies, but I'm totally here! :p

I will keep you in mind because this fic I am currently working on is not the one you are thinking of. It's a Derek/Stiles Step-brother thing that was suppose to be like 3k and I am now 7k in and it is not even close to done (they haven't even kissed yet!) So it has gotten more plotty than I thought it would be and I may very well need an alpha reader to let me know how it all fits together, since I didn't outline it and it is just sort of a puzzle I am fitting together scene by scene. I was just trying to write something short that would help introduce me to the fandom, but alas, I have Plot. ;)

BTW, I now have TWO Teen Wolf icons. I blame you for everything. ;)
