Talking Teen Wolf: Ignore the Emotional Trauma and Focus on Isaac's WetT-Shirt

After last week’s disappointment I am happy to say that Teen Wolf is back on form with “Unleashed” so there is no need to abandon ship just yet. Speaking of ships – apparently Teen Wolf ships Isaac with everyone? Or maybe it’s just that Daniel Sharman constantly looks like he’s in heat? IDK but it’s a thing. Isaac is possibly the most shippable character ever. Okay so maybe I am talking about Isaac’s sexual prospects because I want to ignore all of the pain he went through this week. But as far as I’m concerned repression is a healthy way of dealing with unwanted emotions so let’s talk about Isaac’s wet t-shirt.

Recapturing Teen Wolf: Three’s Company

Previously on Teen Wolf… Derek rescued Ms Blake. There’s an alpha pack in town and they’re probably not here to make friends. Also Derek has a sister Cora. Allison’s mom was kind of crazy (but also kind of magnificent). Isaac’s dad was definitely crazy and someone’s killing virgins.

Talking Teen Wolf: Who put the stationary supplies in the frickin boiler room?

It pains me to say it but I didn’t love this episode. Maybe it was just that “Chaos Rising” raised the bar too high but this week just didn’t satisfy. Don’t get me wrong, I didn’t hate it and there were some amazing moments but most of it felt drawn out and unnecessary. I know I am usually unashamedly positive about this show (and I will continue to do that don’t worry) but I know that they can do better than this and it makes me sad when Teen Wolf doesn’t reach it’s full potential.  I only say these things because I care.

Recapturing Teen Wolf: Someone PLEASE help Derek

Previously on Teen Wolf… Stiles almost got laid until Heather went missing. Derek wants Scott to tell Allison what really happened with her mother (he wants a lot really). Erica is dead and the girl with Boyd is Cora, Derek’s younger sister. Boyd and Cora are rabid and free, thanks to Allison. Also Lydia screamed.

A Shipping News Special: Why is Sterek so Popular?

I have been asked, on several occasions, to explain why so many people like Sterek. There are a lot of other slash ships out there, most of which have more canonical evidence to back them up but there is something about Sterek that has taken it above and beyond. The problem is there are too many factors that contribute to Sterek’s popularity and I could probably go on about it for weeks but no one would read it so instead I have compiled a list of 10 things (and one more for luck) that I believe helped Sterek become such a phenomenal success.  

Side note: this is not why I personally ship Sterek, if you want to know that you can read it here.

Talking Teen Wolf: Don’t try to have sex or you will get attacked by evil wine bottles and DIE!

Now I don’t want to exaggerate but this week’s episode was so good I want to melt it down and inject it directly into my veins. I’ll admit, the premiere wasn’t as good as I wanted it to be but after “Chaos Rising” I am no longer worried about Season 3. In fact I am so on board with it that I am throwing away the lifeboat. THIS SHIP IS UNSINKABLE! Okay I think I might have finally broken but until the men in white coats turn up let’s talk about Teen Wolf.

Recapturing Teen Wolf: Fist and Reward

Previously on Teen Wolf… Allison wants to talk to Scott but they haven’t spoken all summer. There’s pack of Alpha’s in town and they have Boyd and Erica. Also there was a mysterious girl who saved Isaac and left a mark on Allison and Lydia’s skin.

UndieGirl Talks Tropes: The Love Triangle

A lot of people have been hating on the love triangle recently (for good reason) but the thing is when they’re done well there is nothing better. Conversations and arguments get heated where love triangles are concerned and people have to pick a team (even going to the extreme of wearing t-shirts declaring their side). Families and friendships have been ripped apart and that kind of passion should not just be dismissed because we’ve been oversaturated… that said we have reached the point where I want to grab people and scream: it is possible to have a dramatic romance without a love triangle.

Talking Teen Wolf: Derek Hale’s jeans and other notes from the premiere

Well guys there isn’t really much to talk about this week, it’s not like anything happened… oh right there was that one thing where Teen Wolf Season 3 premiered and I died. Okay so maybe I didn’t die but I feel like this is kind of situation that requires exaggeration for dramatic effect because TEEN WOLF IS BACK! But just because the show has returned doesn’t mean the Internet fandom has stopped so let’s talk about what happened this week in the world of Teen Wolf.

Adventures in Fandom: Doctor New, The Red Wedding and Teen Wolf Season 3

Another week down and what a week it was. First was the announcement that Matt Smith would retire from his role as the Doctor after this years Christmas special. This is terribly sad news of course, it’s never nice to watch the Doctor die and it’s shame to lose Matt Smith but it also means that serious speculation about who will taker over the role can begin… it’s exciting. Then Game of Thrones invited us to the wedding of the season and it was a celebration to die for. Also, there’s this little MTV show that you may or may not have heard of, called Teen Wolf that is finally back in our lives after the Season 3 premiere on Monday night.

Recapturing Teen Wolf: Who's That Girl?

Previously on Teen Wolf… Scott doesn’t think Derek should be able to just turn people into werewolf’s and Derek thinks he can do what he wants because he’s the alpha. Allison broke up with Scott but Scott knows they’ll be together eventually. Also the Alpha Pack is here and they have Boyd and Erica.

Recap coming soon.

Recapturing Teen Wolf: Stiles is On the Field!

Previously on Teen Wolf… Matt’s the murderer and he held up the sheriff’s department. Allison is after revenge and what Peter did comes at a price. Mama McCall saw Scott wolf out and Scott is working with Gerard. Also Gerard is now the master of the Kanima.

Recap coming soon.

Recapturing Teen Wolf: They Make a Pretty Good Pair

Previously onTeen Wolf… Peter Hale came back from the dead with a little help from Lydia and Derek. Mama Argent fell on her sword rather than becoming a werewolf. Allison’s the new leader now (or is she). Also Stiles was right, Matt is the Kanima’s master.

Recap coming soon.

Recapturing Teen Wolf: The Party Of The Year

Previously on Teen Wolf… The Kanima is not the Kanima when it’s Jackson, someone it controlling him. Something that affects the Kanima affects its master. Scott doesn’t trust Allison, Mama Argent tried to kill Scott and she got bit. Peter had a plan and that plan was Lydia.

Recap coming soon. 

Recapturing Teen Wolf: You just have to believe.

Recapturing Teen Wolf: Jackson Has a Restraining Order

Previously on Teen Wolf… Lydia needs to open up so she opened up to the cute hipster boy, who is probably a hallucination and someone is controlling Jackson.

The Great Jeff Davis Tumblr Ask-a-thon: Part 3

Okay so it’s official I am going to have to quit everything and become a full time fangirl because I left the house for a only about 2 hours (for purposes that are important because food and Internet) and when I got back I find out that Jeff Davis has taken over the Teen Wolf Tumblr again. In order to keep up my now full-time love of Teen Wolf I’m probably going to need you guys to send supplies because it’s clear I can’t leave the house ever again. Or sleep. Sleep is for people that don’t care about Teen Wolf.

Recapturing Teen Wolf: Are you sure we can't just kill him?

Previously on Teen Wolf… It’s called a Kanima. They thought it was Lydia, Derek wanted to kill her. It wasn’t Lydia it was Jackson. Also Scott’s the alpha of his own pack.
