I marathoned the first season of Teen Wolf yesterday.

Adam: you can't force yourself into a new fandom, Tina.
Me: watch me!
Adam: you're rebounding!

Anyway, I forced him to watch it with me, and got him to play "Pick the slash pairing that has taken over the Internet"

Adam: I don't know how you people think! It's just bizarre.
Me: Go on. Indulge me! I don't really quite get this one either.
Adam: Stiles and the scowly werewolf dude.
Me: What.

See, the way I see it, *really* popular slash pairings come in three flavours. Best Friends, Mortal Enemies, and We're The Two Most Attractive Males In This Club.
Derek/Stiles don't fit the first two, and as cute as Dylan O'brien is, he's no Colton Haynes.
So I was a bit puzzled over the popularity of the pairing (not that I'm not on board) and was amazed at Adam's guess.

Me: explain.
Adam: well, it had to be a werewolf/human pairing, otherwise *boring*, Stiles is the only human, and um, Hello Derek?
Me: you should have seen him before he was legal. Cutest thing ever. Anyway, I guess that makes sense.
Adam: your show still sucks though. How come you won't watch actual quality programming with me, but you'll watch this crap?
Me: does your show come with copious fanfic?
Adam: hmmph.

Anyway, I'm on board with the Derek/Stiles but there are so many other wonderful pairing potentials that I'm still boggled by the sheer ubiquitousness of that pairing. Was there a Sterek epic fanfic that converted everyone? Like the Harry/Draco ship?

Maybe Season 2 will answer my question.

Yay teen wolf!! I know it is kind of daggy but I actually genuinely love a lot of things about it!

Oh, I wouldn't watch it if I didn't like it!

Hmmmm. See I really never saw another pairing. A wee bit of drunken Scott/Stiles but that's it. I think it is because until S2 everyone's personality is so gross and whiny to me except for Stiles. And by the time S2 came about I was already on a ship. :)

Omg I need to punch Scott in the face. Also, why is everyone so dumb in this show or why does everyone need to walk alone in the dark into basements and woods and stuff?

ALSO - why do people feel the need to keep secrets? I've only watched first two episodes of season 2, but why has no one told Lydia what happened to her? Why has Stiles not told his dad? Why has Derek not told Isaac what's going on? WHAT IS WRONG WITH THESE PEOPLE?

Hahaha, oh Teen Wolf. I don't much see the main fandom pairing in the source material either, but it's still fun regardless.

Oh! When they're together, it's awesome, but I just don't understand why it's OVERWHELMINGLY Sterek all the time!

Please teach me how to force myself into a new fandom? I have zero interest in Teen Wolf and it seems to be the only new game in town.

Hahaha, you'll just have to fall in love with something organically, I feel.

My Tumblr dash is mostly Teen Wolf and One Direction. And still a lot of Avengers stuff. They are the new things, I think.

Did you enjoy Sherlock?
