Teen Wolf relationships are like Broken Roads

athenadark has recently reblogged a post on how Jeff called the Stalia relationship interesting and PR said that we would love Malia. My reply said that both were right. I do think the relationship is interesting and I do love Malia. Just that I don’t think they are right for each other. It then got me thinking about Teen Wolf relationships in general.

The relationships of Teen Wolf keep reminding me that country song Bless the Broken Road by Rascal Flatts in which the song is about how past loves led him to the one he’s meant to be with.

I set out on a narrow way many years ago
Hoping I would find true love along the broken road
But I got lost a time or two
Wiped my brow and kept pushing through
I couldn’t see how every sign pointed straight to you

[Chorus:]
Every long lost dream led me to where you are
Others who broke my heart they were like Northern stars
Pointing me on my way into your loving arms
This much I know is true
That God blessed the broken road
That led me straight to you
(Yes He did)

I think about the years I spent just passing through
I’d like to have the time I lost and give it back to you
But you just smile and take my hand
You’ve been there you understand
It’s all part of a grander plan that is coming true.

[Chorus]

Every long lost dream led me to where you are
Others who broke my heart they were like Northern stars
Pointing me on my way into your loving arms
This much I know is true
That God blessed the broken road
That led me straight to you
(Yes He did)

It just feels like no one is meant to be with their first crush or love and that the relationship will eventually fall apart for various reasons but then other ones come along and it fits them better.

One of the prevailing themes of Teen Wolf in regards to love is that a first love is strong, powerful, and determines who you will become in that you find a purpose in your life but the relationship is temporary.

It is temporary because several things happen that cause them to grow apart. We’ve seen this with ALL the major characters.

Scott and Allison was marketed as the Romeo and Juliet relationship of Teen Wolf for season 1. However, the reality is that Allison got tired of the lies, called Scott on his behavior, realized she didn’t want to be the damsel in distress, and broke up with him. They got back together for season 2 but again, they broke up. This time for good.

I think one of the reasons I never fell for this pairing that deep is that there always felt like something was missing. When Isaac came into the picture I felt like they were now grounded. That as a threesome they could succeed.

However, Jeff didn’t have it go that way and Allison got together with Isaac briefly. They had common issues with dealing with betrayal, abuse by a loved one, fondness for Scott, respect for Derek, and looked to Chris as a father-figure and mentor. Their love was young and slow building as they danced around each other for a while.

Kira then came in the picture with her cute crush on Scott and suddenly I didn’t know who to ship anymore. Scott and Kira just fit better together. They both already had past relationships so they were taking things slow to see how things could work out instead of just jumping in headfirst. They both had common interests in how they were raised human but became shifters, they have been targeted for being who they are, they have special powers, and believe in a no-kill policy among other things.

Lydia and Jackson were self-destructive, selfish, egotists who hid their fears with a facade in order to be popular. They were a power couple who did care for each other but there was always Jackson’s issues with intimacy and his inability to love himself let alone show actual care for Lydia. They split in season 1 and remained split through season 2 while Lydia was still wanting him back and they fully split when he left for London.

Lydia has since been awakened to her powers as a Banshee and she is forming a sort of relationship with Deputy Parrish who himself is also trying to find out who and what he is. They are more stable than she and Jackson and he’s not verbally abusive to Lydia like Jackson nor is he as self-destructive, self-hating, and on the wrong side of things for Lydia that Aiden was.

Then there is Derek who had Paige, Kate, and Jennifer that he loved. Kate and Jennifer used and abused him. But Braeden wasn’t like that. They weren’t lovers in the traditional sort in that there was love between them, but there was fondness, respect, and friendship.

Which brings us to Stiles and Malia. Stiles was first deeply in crush/love with Lydia since he was young (could also be tied to him sensing her abilities) and grew out of that idolization when he first came to know her as a person. They have become really good friends now. Malia’s past is unknown she might have been with other coyotes or humans depending on things. Stiles however is the first known relationship she has had that we know of.

It looks like young love but the love doesn’t seem the same type as Scott and Allison’s and Jackson and Lydia’s. They seem to be falling slowly into the same type of situation as Stiles and Lydia, a deep friendship built upon a shared interest. Stiles and Malia have a survivor’s guilt for what happened to them. Her, as a child and shifting which caused the deaths of her mother and sister. Him, for season 3B and possibly his mother as well. Together they are healing and finding purpose. The same as how Derek and Braeden healed during their stint as fuck buddies. Him of his bad cycle of abusive relationships. Her of the guilt and anger over The Desert Coyote and finding it possible for her to care for others again and not just as a job.

What all of this means, overall, is that Stiles and Malia are not going to be a relationship that breaks the Teen Wolf formula.

There are two major ships that orbit Stiles, Stydia and Stalia. Stalia is canon, at the moment. But Jeff NEVER lets first love last. Stydia is strong as a friendship but many feel creeped out by the notion that early Stiles was a ‘nice guy’ trope whom basically sort of stalked Lydia and it has problematic features as a relationship. Then there is Sterek which dwarfs them all.

If Sterek is end game like many of think, then it makes perfect sense for Stiles to follow his friends’ paths as well and have a failing first love relationship in order to prepare him for a stronger commitment to one later on.

Every long lost dream led me to where you are
Others who broke my heart they were like Northern stars
Pointing me on my way into your loving arms

Fitting isn’t it? Not just to the Teen Wolf theme on first love and relationships but also how much of it can fit Sterek as well. They weren’t ready for it in season 1, 2, 3a, 3b, or even 4, but 5a or 5b? Sure. Because they have grown as characters and humans. Stiles will also be the age of consent and his father, the one who cause the most problems with them as a couple, has grown to respect and trust Derek as well. In fact, we might get Deputy!Derek as canon as well in the coming season.

I think about the years I spent just passing through
I’d like to have the time I lost and give it back to you
But you just smile and take my hand
You’ve been there you understand
It’s all part of a grander plan that is coming true.

Which fits us as fans as well.

It’s been years for us fans since the show started and we were first introduced to Stiles and Derek and the Sterek ship. We feel like we have been taken for granted and used but if it is all part of a grander plan then it is worth it. The broken road filled with failed relationships and heartache led, eventually, to the one that will last.

It’s a longshot but we have a chance of changing things and kicking the Neo-Con Tea Party Republicans out of office. The top state offices such as the Gov, Lt. Gov, AG, etc are VITAL!

If we get our Democrats in any one of those we can upset the Republican ideology within this state. If we get all or most of them in we can STOP the Republican ideology in its tracks.

Interesting is the key word, he said the relationship would be interesting

as the meta people will tell you the most common word we use is “interesting”

interesting doesn’t mean it’s a good love affair, after all Scira was never described as “interesting”, it means it appeals to his evil dark troll heart, it means it was always intended to be fucked up and to make us talk, it was meant to make us question it - and we have

this is why people get pissed at Davis, he tells us the truth, but he’s such a fricking troll we don’t realise it because he twists words, the PR said you’ll love Stalia, Davis said it was “interesting” - he’s a sadist and the PR got it wrong (as usual)

What davis says always comes true - but not always the way it immediately looks - nah, never the way it looks

Well, never of them were wrong.

I do find their pairing/relationship interesting and thought provoking.

I also do love Malia herself. And not in a the same way that I love Kate and Peter either.I just don’t think Malia and Stiles are good for each other as a romantic relationship, but I think they are good for each other by helping them find balance and purpose in their lives. I think they are better off as friends than lovers.

If you have any doubt about the evil intent of the Koch Brothers and their bid to buy our Congress and the White House, you should read this. They are backing Republican candidates. For that reason alone, you should not. None. Otherwise, you will be complicit in their efforts to overthrow our democracy.

I can’t find a source. Does anyone have any? I won’t believe it until I get a source.

SOURCES
HERE

http://www.sciencealert.com.au/news/20143009-26255-2.html

Here is what the article has to say:

With the complicated history of the debate in mind, three experts put forward their opinions, and according to The Irish Examiner, they went as follows:

1. Historian Owen Gingerich argued: A planet is a culturally-defined word that changes over time. Pluto IS a planet.

2. Gareth Williams, from the IAU’s Minor Planets Center argued: A planet is a spherical body that orbits the Sun and has cleared its path. Pluto is NOT a planet.

3. Dimitar Sasselov, the director of Harvard’s planetary program, the Origins Of Life Initiative, argued: A planet is the smallest spherical lump of matter that formed around stars or stellar remnants. Pluto IS a planet.

Argument number 3 was voted by the audience as most convincing, but with the understanding that things change in science where more information is discovered, and when it comes to, you know, THE UNIVERSE, there is still much to be learned. So Pluto should be considered a planet right now, the audience decided, but that could change in the future as our knowledge about planets and other cosmic bodies grows.

It’s not exactly a decision that can’t be reversed again. But it’s good to have Pluto as a planet again. Not just because I’m a Scorpio and it’s my ruling planet either. :D

In last night’s gubernatorial debate, Wendy Davis stood strong and called Abbott’s blatant twisting of facts for what it was. His campaign’s desperate post-debate response? Calling her clearly superior performance a “meltdown.”
It’s outrageous, patronizing, and incredibly sexist. But you know what? If Greg Abbott and his team have to resort to sexist attacks on Wendy, it only shows one thing: She’s someone he’s afraid of.

Odds increasing that GOP will take the Senate

Reblogged from stopkingobama

stopkingobama:

A roundup of the three major election forecasting models — Washington Post’s Election Lab; Leo, the New York Times model; and FiveThirtyEight — shows that Republicans’ odds of winning the six required seats to take back the Senate majority increased slightly over the past week. Overall, Election Lab gives the GOP a 76 percent chance of taking the majority; Leo a 67 percent chance; and FiveThirtyEight a 60 percent chance. This is all an increase from 65 percent, 55 percent, and just under 55 percent a week ago, respectively.

Screen Shot 2014-09-29 at 3.36.34 PM

The uptick is largely due to the GOP’s strengthening chances in Alaska, Colorado, and Iowa:

Of the rest of the competitive seats, Alaska is the biggest mover in all three models from a week ago. At that time, the models disagreed — Election Lab (81 percent chance) and Leo (62 percent) gave Democrats the edge while FiveThirtyEight had Republicans at a 56 percent probability of winning. Today all three models align; Leo gives former state attorney general Dan Sullivan (R) a 72 percent chance of winning while Election Lab puts it at 71 percent and FiveThirty Eight at 68 percent.  A series of polls released over the last week have shown Sullivan moving ahead of Sen. Mark Begich (D).

The other big change in Republicans’ favor is in Colorado. Seven days ago , FiveThirtyEight’s model called the state a true 50-50 tossup while Leo gave Sen. Mark Udall (D) a 55 percent chance of winning and Election Lab was even more optimistic for Udall at 67 percent.  All three models today agree that Rep. Cory Gardner (R) is a (slight) favorite; FiveThirtyEight says Gardner has a 56 percent probability of winning while Leo is at 61 percent and Election Lab 66 percent.  Like Alaska, several new surveys have show movement in Gardner’s direction.

The models are also now in agreement — unlike last week — that Iowa’s open seat tilts in state Sen. Joni Ernst’s (R) favor albeit narrowly.  Election Lab shows Ernst with an 83 percent probability of winning but that looks like the outlier as Leo has it at 61 percent and FiveThirtyEight at 56 percent. (The Real Clear Politics poll of polls has Ernst up by two points over Democratic Rep. Bruce Braley.)

All models also give the Republicans strong odds of taking the open seats in Montana, South Dakota, and West Virginia, as well as defeating Sen. Mark Pryor (D-AK) and Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-LA). It looks like November will be the month of the elephant.

Just what we don’t need. If the GOP take the House and Senate then Obama will not only be a lame duck president but appointments such as the replacement for Attorney General Eric Holder will be in effect halted.

What the fuck?

Where are the pictures?

The ones I reblogged the other day are showing up on the blog but the 10 I did today are not. They are showing up on my dashboard and archives but not the blog?

Not sure what the fuck happened, but all those posts I made have to be deleted because the picture is NOT showing up on my blog.

However, new posts I made to test if the problem is fixed are working. So a dozen posts on my blog have to be deleted because of this bullshit issue. At least the fucker is working again.

ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME?!

It’s not working, AGAIN!!

Such fucking bullshit. There’s something wrong with the tumblr image thing because the reblogs are showing up in my dash and archives but the pictures aren’t and even when I click on the original pictures I get the loading screen instead of the picture. If I click on another picture that is not being affected by this bullshit it works fine.

I’m going to have to contact Tumblr about this.

Have now contacted Tumblr Support about this problem.

Let’s see how long it takes for them to contact me about it and if it is fixable.

If worst comes to worst I will just delete everything and start from scratch and that means uploading the pictures individually all over again for every Dawn Dusk blog I had which is 3 full years (2011, 2012, and 2013) and the beginning of 2014. So that’s over 3,000 pictures I need upload. It’s faster to reblog but I have no idea which pictures are being affected by this issue.

What the fuck?

So Tumblr hasn’t contacted me yet on my problem. I noticed that the pictures are working in that I can reblog from the dawnduskartproject blog to my blog and they show up.

Which leads me to believe there is some conflict in the fucking theme. Which makes no sense because I have the same theme on my other blogs dawnduskthrough2011 dawnduskthrough2012 dawnduskthrough2013 and dawnduskthrough2014 and they still show up there!

So I decided to go back to default on the them. http://www.tumblr.com/theme/9601 Which is the Quite Big theme.

It didn’t work.

So I picked a random theme and viola the fucking pictures are there! So now, I guess I need a new theme for the blog.

Anyone know any good ones for pictures? Since dawnduskartproject is a photography blog?

I contacted the creator of the theme on their blog: http://quitebig.tumblr.com/

I’m not sure why, but for some reason your theme is not showing my pictures. It just started this week. I’m reblogging pics from another blog of mine to dawnduskartproject. The new pictures I’m reblogging do not show on the blog but do on archives, tumbleblog, & my dash. Others can reblog the post & the pictures show up on their blogs. I re-installed, same issue. Changed themes they show up. Right now dawnduskartproject is showing the default version of the theme so you can see the problem.

Maybe the problem can be fixed?

Anyways, since now I know the pictures ARE there they just aren’t showing up for some goddamn reason. I’m just going to continue the move.

If the creator and/or tumblr don’t contact me in a week or so’s time I will just try to find a new theme.

Any tips or suggestions would be appreciated.

Still heard nothing.

But some good news. Newer posts are unaffected. It might just be a glitching regarding those posts. Which I can probably fix if I delete off the pictures in question and replace them.

Still have no fucking idea why it is only NOT showing up on the blog but other blogs are fine when it is reblogged to them.

Bad news. The issue with picture corruption is throughout the blog. It has to do with the small pictures. Every single small picture is not showing up.

So I’m going to delete the blogs and start over. The only reason I kept the picture blogs up was because I wanted to reblog them over to the new blog. Now, I find that I’m going to have to individually re-upload every fucking picture. There is no need for me to keep dawnduskthrough2011, dawnduskthrough2012, dawnduskthrough2013, and dawnduskthrough2014 around.

So I’m going to spend time on uploading 6,000 pictures to dawnduskartproject.

Fun times.

After I get that done, then I need to get them up on the Pinterest account. This means I need to delete all the pic spam I recently did on my blog too.

Joy.

The Dawn Dusk blogs are gone. Only dawnduskartproject is left. 

I have now deleted all the pictures off the blog so I can start fresh. I am also trying to find a way that will allow me upload my pictures to Instagram.

So I got bluestacks downloaded. I’m in the process of uploading the first picture…

Good lord it’s taking a while. Not to mention I have to crop it so portions of my photo are cut out. Not happy about that.

I think I’ll probably focus on the Tumblr blog and Pinterest first then worry about getting the photos up on Instagram.

Still loading. Been several minutes now.

*sighs*
