Production sketches lead us to believe that this season (wait for it) might hurt.
And then I don’t know what happens next, Derek thinks. I have absolutely no idea. It feels huge and terrifying, his body brilliant, exhausted, jubilant: this is what mercy feels like, Derek thinks, looking at Stiles asleep in his arms. This is what I’ve been waiting for, what I asked for at last: this is mercy, this is grace. - The Difficult Kind
actually, that accidental reincarnation fic idea was the original plot of they call kids like us vicious and carved out of stone, but i went slightly (okay, a lot) to the left with how the fic actually turned out. but before, it was going to be p much canon compliant and stiles and derek were going to be in a relationship before derek tells him about the aging thing, but instead of how the other fic works with the “rewinding” stiles was going to watch derek die and then realize that he couldn’t follow derek because stiles messed with that magic shit.
so stiles was going to be living this ~immortal life, and along the way he would meet up with reincarnated versions of derek and watch all these variations of derek die.
and then i decided nope i wanted a happy ending. ahaha.
DEUCALION IS BLIND.
ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME I AM SERIOUSLY NOT PREPARED FOR THIS
Yep, God, this is happening. TEEN WOLF YOU ALL.
you know what fuck “this might hurt,” the season hasn’t even started yet AND IT ALREADY HURTS
