#god this scene always sticks out in my brain as one of the most important derek hale moments of s1 #because in this tiny moment we get so much insight into derek #up until this point everyone thinks he’s evil or rude or a jerk or whatever #or at the very least cranky all the time #but god no derek didn’t fucking want any of it #deep down he’s a scared boy who lost his entire family and recently his sister #and everyone in the town thinks /he/ murdered her #meanwhile he’s trying to find her actual killer and not get himself hunted down #and juggling scott’s problems #AND HE’S SCARED #HE PUTS ON THE BRAVEST FACE BECAUSE HE HAS SO MUCH HE TRIES TO HANDLE BUT FUCK #HE GETS SCARED TOO #I mean look at his terrified face in that first gif and doesn’t it just break your heart #no one thinks of derek like this#so vulnerable and nervous #but he has so much that he hides beneath a frown#and it was so nice to see a moment of pure instinct #something he couldn’t cover up #and I still see derek like this more than anything #a scared boy who lost his family #who was forced to grow up too fast
#i am cry #i literally had an open discussion with my friend that i watched this episode with tonight about why they gave each other these looks #and why the hell did stiles look so /intense/ about saying it and why the hell did derek literally pause and look at him that way #like why #why was this a thing #why is this what it is #why #emotionally compromising #literal idiots #literal idiots that would literally do anything for one another to keep the other alive #that haven’t even worked their way up to friendship yet and continue doing this #literal #idiots #dumb #dumb and fucking dumber #i hate this show i hate my life i hate existence in its entirety
Trust me this once?
#ugh never getting over the way Stiles is back at his side #looping Derek’s arm over his head #before Derek even knows what’s happening to him #or how insulted Stiles is when he realizes that Derek thinks he only did it to save his own life #and the way he looks around the first time they surface #because he doesn’t know the kanima can’t swim yet #and Stiles fucking Stilinski is planning on trying to swim away from that monster while carrying a full grown werewolf #there’s a fine line between brave and stupid #and love (or loyalty #or compassion #or whatever you want to call it) #takes that line and smears it all over the place #gets them all mixed up in one another #and I’m never getting over the part where the only benefit to staying was that Derek wouldn’t die alone
