This is my blog. Not yours. I am a Person. And you are a person. But this is mine.
it’s me, FeministHatingBrony87, back with another movie review. this week i’m going to be talking about why Disneys Planes needed less female characters and more horses. i know i promised in my last video that my next video would be less than 45 minutes but i just had a lot to say. anyway let’s get started
do you ever feel bad about not feeling bad about something you should feel bad about
really all you need to know about the american health care system is that there’s a popular tv series where a man turns to cooking industrial quantities of crystal meth in order to pay his hospital bills
EVERY FRIENDSHIP HAS THAT ONE JOKE THAT BASICALLY ENDS WITH THEM BEING LIKE THIS
…you’re lucky I’m a stubborn asshole because these took way longer to make than I’d like to admit.
holy fucking shit
I scrolled past this before realizing what this is and I just… woah

Stiles possibly having died is something that crops up relatively freqeuently during meta posts and also in meta chat. At the top of my head i can’t remember if there are any metas spesificially about this and who might’ve made them. So i’m calling out to the meta pack and anyone else who has looked into this topic to step forward and provide links :)
At the top of my head i can think of several possible points where Stiles might’ve died
- In the icebath in 3x11/3x12 - they were under water for 16 hours!
- When he crashed his car during 3x12
- During the nogi/void possession
- Prior to 1x01, possibly drowned
I’m terrible at brief answers, but i’m going to try to summarize these points short and sweet (yeah right)
This also goes for Scott and Allison. They were in the water for 16 hours - and not just in it, but under it! It should not be possible to do so and live to tell the tale. The hows and the whys i don’t have å good answer for, but it’s true they all came out changed and affected. Basically they were haunted by their own worst fears - fears that turned out were not unfounded.
they were all given warnings about things to come that would test them. But because these hints were all tied to some of their worst fears, none of the even considered that they could be prophetic.too bad really…
Allison saw Kate - the person who she’d admired and now feared she might turn into. She did come close during season 2 and knows she has it in her. And not only did she see her alive, she also saw here as a werewolf which was pretty close to the truth.
Scott was plagued with visions of himself turning into Peter. About him losing control. And the image below from 4x10 does seem to indicate he’s on his way on both accounts.
Stiles found himself robbed of what essentially made him him - his mind. It was presented as him losing grip of reality, losing the ability to read, losing time, losing hope and belief. All of which i strongly believe are connected to stiles’ spark - it’s fueled by belief. It’s extraordiary what the human mind can accomplish when it sets it’s mind to it. Also third eye might be in play here. And Stiles’ mind was taken over and possessed, so the fear did come true for him as well.
Lydia did banshee-scream in 3x09 when Jennifer tried to strangle her and as far as i can remember no one died until the ice baths. Banshees foretell deaths after all.
Stiles crashes his car on the way to the nemeton after coming back from the ice baths in 3x12. Beacon Hills is hit by a storm that seems to be created by Jennifer and is later also making the ground around the nemeton crack up and the root cellar collapses. Under the nemeton we know the jar with the void fly was hidden by Noshiko back in 1943. Noshiko in 3x21 more or less say outright that it was the icebaths that woke it up, but i believe it’s probably Jennifer and her ministrations that is causing it to escape.
Stiles crashes his jeep…
…and the very next scene is between Jennifer and Lydia at Derek’s loft.
Lydia: What do you want from me?
Jennifer: I want you to do what you do best, lydia. I want you to scream.
Basically Jennifer threatens Lydia into screaming - but who was the scream for? Was it for Stiles who Jennifer just moments before with her magical storm had just driven into a tree? Or was it just to draw Derek back? Or both?
No matter what i do believe this is the moment when Stiles became possessed. But was his body already dead at this moment?
If Stiles did die in that crash, i do believe the possession revived him. It makes no sense for the possessing force to just ride a dead stiles suit in 3b. After all we have a lot of indications of stiles breaking free and leaving hints to the others, and that would’ve been impossible if stiles fully died here.
As the season progressed it became more and more evident that stiles’ body was ridden hard by the forces possessing him. He looked pale, huge black circles under his eyes and cracked lips like he wasn’t getting any sleep, fluids or nurishment.
And he did slice his stomach open to reveal a swarm of minion!flies and never really bothered to close it up. Had the possessing force left his body there and then he would surely be dead.
It doesn’t beleed because his body is essentially a corpse…
Deaton: Doesn’t look like he’s bleeding. [Because Stiles is a corpse.]
Aiden: You mean healing like we do?
Scott: That’s good right?
Deaton’s face makes it pretty clear it’s not good.
Deaton: For him yes. Us? I’m not so sure.
But thankfully possessed!stiles puked up a stiles clone and he lived to tell another tale.
One again Lydia did scream for him. When he was in the MRI in 3x18 Lydia was in her car hearing the same hammering sound of the MRI in her head and in the end ended up screaming.
This one is based mostly on the conversation between Morell and Stiles in 2x11 after Matt drowned.
Morell: How about we get back to you? Stiles?
Stiles: I’m fine. Yeah, aside from the not sleeping, the jumpiness, the constant, overwhelming, crushing fear that something terrible’s about to happen.
Morell: It’s called hypervigilance, the persistent feeling of being under threat.
Stiles: But it’s not just a feeling, though. It’s it’s like it’s a panic attack. You know, like I can’t even breathe.
Morell: Like you’re drowning?
Morell: So if you’re drowning, and you’re trying to keep your mouth closed until that very last moment, what if you choose to not open your mouth? To not let the water in?
Stiles: Well, you do anyway. It’s a reflex.
Morell: But if you hold off until that reflex kicks in, you have more time, right?
Stiles: Not much time.
Morell: But more time to fight your way to the surface?
Stiles: I guess.
Morell: More time to be rescued?
Stiles: More time to be in agonizing pain. And did you forget about the part where you feel like your head’s exploding?
Morell: If it’s about survival, isn’t a little agony worth it?
Stiles: And what if it just gets worse? What if it’s agony now and then and it’s just hell later on?
Morell: Then think about something- “If you’re going through hell, keep going.
Stiles does seem to have very profound and detailed knowledge about what it feels like to drown. We do know he sometimes goes on google-searches on obscure topics like male circumsistion so that could be the answer, but it’s such a morbid topic. He might have done it after Matt drowned of course, but still. Morell is the one to make the connection based on what Stiles describes though so it might not mean anything.
But we also have the scene from 3x06 Motel California where Lydia hears a mother and a child and how the mother clearly is planning to drown the kid. It has been speculated this might have been Claudia and a young Stiles, especially if she was out of it due to her illness.
Stiles: Lydia, what do you hear?
Lydia: A baby crying. Quiet! I hear I hear water running.
Woman’s voice: It’s time to sleep.
Lydia: Oh, my God.
Woman’s voice: Off you go to sleep now.
Lydia: She’s drowning the baby! Someone’s drowning!
So there you have it - and there might even be more theories about this for all i know. If anyone has metas on this, feel free to add on or link to it.
You know, and this is going to sound crazy, but I wonder if Stiles has died multiple times? I wonder if death, if coming back to life, is somehow related to his power, these are very compelling arguments, and they should be taken very seriously in the “What is Stiles?” argument, lately there have been alot of witches in other stories that specialize in avoiding death, I made a post about the links between Teen Wolf and American Horror Story, and if I’m right, this could be another link, one of the main witches in last season had the power of ressurgence, in Witches Of East End, two out of four witches have the power to avoid death, one with actual immortality, one with possessing nine lives and being able to bring herself back to life eight times with no consequences, Sleepy Hollow’s sole witch (currently) just came back from the dead, The Vampire Diaries, in fact, had a pretty big shpeel in their last season finale’ about a witch bringing people back from the dead (and then getting stuck on the other side) and although Teen Wolf is very different from the rest of the genre I do find it often nodding to themes that are commonly happening, I do wonder if they’ve decided to give Stiles a way to avoid death, and let’s not forget, we do have an in-canon example of another person with this … ability: Peter,and Peter may have only been bought back to life ONCE but he IS a master at avoiding death, he didn’t die in the fire, he forced Lydia to bring him back to life, and he’s avoided being killed by everyone in the show (except, incidentally, Stiles and Derek- Stiles who lit him on fire and weakened him enough for Derek to rip his throat out) that should be trying to kill him- IE: Scott, for example, in a simaler way, Stiles doesn’t have the same “Hey I just came back to life” power that these examples do, but most things in Teen Wolf that are parallel to.. well… anything… are not done directly, but are subtle, meta, hints, it would make sense that Stiles “avoids” death rather than “comes back to life”, the ice bath should have killed him- he survived by the same methods Allison and Scott did, the car crash should have killed him- oh look at that he’s possessed, Nogi should have killed him (multiple times) somehow he got a “Get out of jail free” card there too, and the drowning? What saved him then? Maybe his spark, you know, I’ve never been able to see Stiles as a druid, his power seems so much different than a druid’s to me, I haven’t seen evidence (yet) that Deaton or Morrel (or even Jennifer but then again she was super-druid) can make phone calls underground or lock and unlock doors at will without any kind of preperation first, druids work with magic by depending on other things- herbs, sacrifices, objects, to get what they want, Stiles? Stiles just has to blink, and maybe that’s why Peter looked so concerned in 4x12 when Stiles made that call, maybe that’s why he’s the biggest owl on the table (to reference Cupidsbower) maybe it’s because he’s not a druid- he’s a witch, after all, in Teen Wolf I believe the only limit to what lives in the supernatural world is what has time to crawl onto the screen, I mean a FAMILY full of WENDIGOS was just laying there in plain sight, eating dead bodies, and no one noticed for YEARS, decades apparently, what’s to stop witches from being around too? I wouldn’t be surprised if mermaids lived in the lake or vampires were teaching 9th grade biology, so could that have anything to do with any of this? People say that Scott is lucky because he hasn’t so far had to kill anyone or make any REALLY hard decisions, but Stiles has been lucky too, how could he just keep avoiding death when it has it’s hands wrapped around his ankles? How could he keep avoiding it if not by sheer dumb luck? Well, if Stiles is a witch, it’s pretty possibly, Teen Wolf has a tendency to take the monsters we know and love and tweak them here and there to make them fit into this world better, Banshees being people and not ghosts for example, what if witches have something about them that allows them to avoid death or perhaps, a more likely solution, something that attracts life? That attracts someone or something to their aid no matter the circumstances? As far as his ability to avoid death goes, I’m honestly not sure just how it corrolates to his powers- if it does at all, this could be just luck, it could be coincidence, it could be that Stiles never did die and all of this is just speculation… but I don’t think it is, and I will say this, whatever Stiles is, I think he’s far more powerfull than a druid, I’m leaning towards a witch, but whatever it is, I hope there’s some kind of connection to revival/avoiding death, because this entire thing is far too interesting for it not to come to fruition
