how does anyone not like scott mccall omg
like are you serious
he’s the only one here who gives a shit about u
Okay so like, there’s this episode of Samantha Who? where the main character (Sam) is dating this guy (Owen) who, like, is a super environmentalist volunteer I spent last summer saving dying children in a third world country good looking exercises every day gives to charity, self supporting intelligent funny mom’s love him OMG NO STOP I CAN’T DATE YOU ANYMORE I KNOW IT’S NOT ON PURPOSE I JUST FEEL LIKE I’M FAILING AS A HUMAN BEING EVERY TIME WE HAVE A CONVERSATION and he’s like, “:((( :((( *sigh* Yeah, my last girlfriend broke up with me for the same reason. Actually every girlfriend I’ve ever had? I’m. Yeah.”
And so every time people are like, BUT SCOTT IS SO GOOD, WHY YOU NO LIKE I’m like. Do you remember who you’re talking to? This is a fandom that spends every Friday celebrating Derek’s failures with booze, penis drawings and dead parent jokes.
Posey on the other hand, now there’s a guy I would be happy to smoke up with once a week and twice on holidays. We could bond over Blink 182 and fart jokes. OUR BROMANCE WOULD BE THE STUFF OF EPIC … SOMETHING, SOMETHING. I’M NOT EXACTLY SURE WHAT. IT WOULD JUST BE EPIC OKAY.
But I digress.
See, Scott McCall is kind of like Captain America, or maybe Clark Kent. And I think some Scott fans keep expecting Teen Wolf to be Smallville (before it jumped the shark, I mean). Like, they want Scott to do his hero thing and save the day. They want good to triumph over evil. And they think everybody wants that. Like, omg duh! Of course everybody wants good to triumph over evil. Isn’t that why people watch tv?
But Teen Wolf is actually more like the mutant lovechild of Queer As Folk US and Texas Chainsaw Massacre. And so you get fans like me, who just want to see what happens to characters (in strategically ripped clothing) when they’re pushed to the very limits of their sanity. We want to hold our favorite characters over the edge of the volcano, Sun Tzu style. We want to know what makes our favorite characters tick, and it’s no big deal if we get some brain matter stuck under our fingernails for our trouble. Some people, oh, what’s that quote again? Some people just want to watch the world burn.
And that’s why we watch tv.
There are two kinds of people.
IM LITERALLY ABOUT TO SCREAM I WATCHED SUPERNATURAL FOR THE FIRST TIME AND DEANS VOICE DOES NOT MATCH UP WITH HIS BODY I SWEAR HIS VOICE IS SO DEEP OHMYGO D
DID YOU WATCH THE LAST EPISODE OR ?? BECAUSE HIS VOICE IS PRETTY HIGH IN S1
Okay so editors note. I made a vid years ago. I started with bootlegs and then eventually replaced it with actual DVD footage once the DVD’s came out.
So here is the thing. Some of my bootlegs were from European PAL format DVD’s and some from US DVD’s or live broadcasts and some from Canadian live broadcasts. PAL is 25 frames per second. USA film is 23.976 frames per second if I recall correctly. So on my US DVD’s and on the live broadcast Dean’s voice actually sounds quite deep but slightly higher and less resonant on the PAL. I’m guessing they just sped up the video without pitch correction when they converted to PAL format for European distribution. But then I think they actually started pitch correcting in later seasons?
I mean his voice did get a little deeper, but I think the drop wasn’t as dramatic as ppl think because audio processing shenanigans.

This speaks to me.
I keep seeing posts where people say, “But Kate Argent honestly believed she was acting for the greater good!” Or “Kate just had really strong convictions, and even though they were misguided, the fact that she had convictions is admirable!”
JUSTIFICATIONS ARE NOT BELIEFS. PREJUDICES ARE NOT ADMIRABLE.
Sexist politicans “believe” that girls should have their clothing and their bodies policed because of how detrimental their bodies/choices might be to the men around them and then insist that their pro-rape-culture policies are “for the greater good.”
Parents who beat their kids tell themselves “I’m just being reasonably strict” and “it’s for their own good.”
During the Inquisition, priests “believed” that any woman in a position of power was a witch, and tortured midwives and pagan priestesses to “save” them, and then killed them “for the greater good” of their patriarchal society.
Homophobes “believe” that gay marriage is corrupting the youth and destroying the stability of the American family and that it must be stopped “for the greater good.”
Black people were given segregated bathrooms because the white patriarchy “believed” that they would spread diseases and even had “science” to back up their “convictions.”
Kate Argent victimized a teenaged boy and then told herself that her actions were good and right because he was less than human.
This is predator logic. It doesn’t matter who is being victimized, predators always tell themselves that their victims are less than human, and that therefore anything done to their victims is justifiable, or that they are acting for the victim’s own good, or for the good of society.
Predators “believe” because it is convenient, because it flatters their egos, because it justifies their sins.
Kate Argent’s “beliefs” and “convictions” are a steaming pile of bullshit. People in this fandom need to stop covering that bullshit in whipped cream and sprinkles and calling it a sundae.
real shippers don’t stop until one or both of their otp is dead.
we don’t stop even then because arthur will rise again and merlin is waiting for him
I have been in more than one fandom where shippers intentionally killed off their otp for the purpose of writing zombie and/or vampire porn.
