Call me Ambie. I mostly reblog things that I see and like on my dash. If you'd like to see my writing or fanfiction recs, click on the links below this section. In "My Writing," I have an original fic, and when I write fanfics, it'll go there. In "Fanfiction Rec..." I have links to fics that I've read and enjoyed. It's mostly Sterek and Wincest fics though. Feel free to message me about anything.
So Chasing told me there was a Sterek pen-pal prompt going around. And I really need this to happen. Like this sounds like the coolest thing ever. What if Derek is like this professional pack-backing photographer and he’s traveling all over the world and has been through so much but he still can’t connect to the people around him so he gets into a pen-pal program and Stiles is the one he gets.
And they write to each other. And Derek is the one that starts sending photos first. Like of him in different places, standing in front of well-known world monuments or just photographing landscapes and interesting things. Or taking photos of the different foods he’s trying. And he starts shipping Stiles little souvenirs from all the places.
And Stiles gets really excited about all of this because he’s never left Beacon Hills before. He’s only seen these things on television or on the internet or in books and it makes me so much more excited about the world around him. He cherishes every souvenir, that’s ended up on his door step and the letter that comes with it because Derek is always spontaneous about it. And the objects aren’t what you normally see in souvenir shops. Derek even sends food after Stiles had told him how much he loves to eat.
And maybe they grow close as friends. Maybe Stiles talks about Derek to Scott and to Allison and to Lydia. Maybe he even talks about Derek to his Dad (like his dad doesn’t already see the various packages and letters coming to the house), but he smiles at seeing how happy Stiles is to be writing to someone (after the “be careful, son. You don’t know this guy.” speech). But months and months pass and Stiles isn’t in any kind of danger so this friendship continues.
And what if they don’t talk for a week or two and Stiles gets worried that something has happened, but then he gets a package from Derek and inside is a panoramic photograph of the Egyptian Pyramids and there is a jar of Egyptian sand, (among other goodies) and this 4 page letter from Derek talking enthusiastically about his journey and all the things he saw. And how even though he was swept up in all the beauty he kept thinking about different things Stiles would enjoy and he gathered as much as he could to send to him.
And Stiles just feels himself exploding with so many feelings, that he can’t categorize them in the time it takes to realize how in love he is with Derek.
And once the 18 months have passed and the program is over, they are still writing to each other. And maybe phone calls are added and skype chats, and it just makes Stiles fall more in love with this man he had been communicating with through a pencil for a year and a half.
And the last package he gets, is Derek at his doorstep. And it’s probably the best package out of all the packages Derek has ever sent.
THIS WOULD BE THE BEST THING EVER.
I literally pictured this all happening in panels. And like, Stiles has a map and little pins of everywhere that Derek visits. And when he gets there, Stiles shows him and Derek gets this little private smile on his face.
I SWEAR YOU ENABLE ME TO DRAW THINGS WHEN I SHOULDN’T.

The idea of “women and children first” wasn’t invented by women - it was invented by men
Just another part of the patriarchy, I suppose? How dare those men try to stop us from drowning
First of all, it was never even a thing. Women and Children First was not ever a widely used practice for evacuating ships.
In fact, let’s look at some actual facts: While the phrase first appeared in the 1860 novel Harrington: A Story of True Love, by William Douglas O’Connor. [source]
As a code of conduct, “women and children first” has no basis in maritime law, and according to University of Greenwichdisaster evacuation expert Professor Ed Galea, in modern-day evacuations people will usually “help the most vulnerable to leave the scene first. It’s not necessarily women, but is likely to be the injured, elderly and young children.”
Furthermore, the results of a 2012 Uppsala University study suggest that the application of “women and children first” may have, in practice, been the exception rather than the rule.
au where sam’s deaf and at night he sits on dean’s lap, back to his chest, and feels the rhythm of his heart beat and his steady breathing and they pass notes illuminated by the moonlight streaming through the window and when sam turns 14 they kiss for the first time and sam goes to speech therapy most days after school and the first words he says is “i love you” to dean. and when they get older, dean surprises sam with a surgery that can make him hear. and the first thing sam ever hears is dean saying “i love you too, sammy.”
i’ve never really seen great chemistry like that between them, she’s never looked at him like she wants to tear his clothes off, or like he’s her answer to every prayer, i feel like up until recently, she only ever really tolerated him, as someone in the background, and he’d only ever put her on a pedestal, and never push back the way she needs, she needs someone that’s totally independent themselves, so she can have her own agenda, and not worry that they’re missing her, or that they need her, i would hate for Lydia to enter into a relationship that was needy, whereas Stiles, one hundred per cent needs someone that needs him and wants him back all the time, their personalities are very different that way. he’s looking for someone that’ll give him everything, and that he in return can give his whole world to, and Lydia’s looking for someone that’ll let her run the world, and stick beside her, and never lose their patience with her, but be able to tell her no, be able to say “what about this, instead” she needs a challenge, someone that defies her expectations, and surprises her. i feel like Stiles and she would get bored of each other, and not have much romantic chemistry at all? idk if part of it is that Holland seems to see Dylan as something of a little brother? and maybe i see that on screen a lot too? and that he had a crush on her, was convinced he was in love with her without even knowing who she was, and that’s unfair to Lydia. it’s not what she deserves. she deserves someone who sees her through non rose-tinted glasses, who sees everything she does like it’s the first time, and doesn’t make assumptions of her.
i think for me, mostly, Stiles & Lydia don’t click, because i can’t see Lydia ever falling in love with Stiles. being friends with him, trusting him, relying on him, enjoying him in her life, yes, but wanting to climb him like a tree, or stay up at night talking to him, sipping coffee with him in the morning? i can’t see any of that. most of my non-Stydia feels, are revolved around Lydia. i want more for her than the cliche boy loved girl from afar, and eventually the girl said “yeah ok i guess, you’ve grown on me” like i want real passion for her, whether it comes from a person, or math, or knowledge, or whatever, i want more for her.
