ALRIGHTY GUYS.

so i’ve been toying with the idea of doing a giveaway for awhile because it always seemed like so much fun, and there’s nothing better than seeing people smile and boosting the amount of awesome in their day. but recently i hit a fun follower number and there’s been some negativity swirling around lately so i figured this would be the perfect way to give back/show my thanks AND spread some happiness around at the same time!!

BASICS:

  • there will be 3-5 winners based on interest
  • the winners will get a priority shipping box sent to them with a bunch of goodies inside. 'BUT WHAT GOODIES CAN WE EXPECT?' you ask? ‘GOOD QUESTION BUT I’M nOT TELLING!’ i reply!   
  • basically it’s going to be a bunch of surprises. there will definitely be some fandom (probably multi fandom depending on what the winners are into) stuff, as well as some fun edibles, and i’m pretty crafty so i’ll be throwing in quite a few homemade fun things too! (i’ll message the winners to get a feel for what fandoms they’re in and some other basic info to help me fill the box)

DA RULES:

  • you can like once for one entry and reblog as much as you want but i’m pretty sure tumblr only counts them once so that’s really up to you.
  • no giveaway blogs bc laaaaaame.
  • even though this is in part to thank my outstanding followers for hanging with me, you do not have to be following me to enter. HOWEVER, if you want to check it out and stay for awhile, i can always use more pals! :)
  • i’ll be using a random number generator to pick winners, and though i feel it should be obvious, if the same url is picked twice they will only win one and i’ll choose someone else.
  • you must be willing to send me your address for obvious reasons, so if you are uncomfortable with that then no harm no foul, but no mystery box of awesome either.

THE GIVEAWAY WILL END IN TWO WEEKS ON MARCH 1ST, 2014 AT 12:00AM EST.

the fact that the last day of 2012 is a monday really sums up how this year went

But the first day of 2013 is a Tuesday, so this is going to be one fucked up, never ending, painful year.

Teen Wolf EW Interview

Okay, let’s settle in for some spoiler talk and speculation.
As emotional as I am about this season not giving us enough to decide between bad writing and mind fuck plot, I still think the individual episodes (aside from Fireflies) are quite well done - without context, they have great emotional impact and structure, so.
The problem here is that the show is written like a novel and not like a TV show and while that worked okay for them before, with this more complex plot it’s kind of a mess. We’re missing a lot of transitions, a lot of them. This is WORSE than Master Plan and Jeff himself admitted that Master Plan was a clusterfuck.
So let’s assume that it’s intentional just for a second. The missing transitions aren’t there BECAUSE this is all a series of dreamlike events they’re going through. It works with the extremely focused episodes — time no longer passes on the show. We see slices of single days, even just hours, and then nothing. It makes sense if you think of it as someone beating the level of a game and then going to the next.
In 308 we’re going to get mostly flashback action, I believe. There will be some lore answers, some origin answers for the alphas, some more fuckery for Derek, but I doubt we’ll see much real time action for our heroes. If possible I would like the style of 308 to reflect some of the breaks we’ve seen this season, I would like them to make it clear that we can’t trust these narrators. (Peter and Gerard? Come on! They’re about as trustworthy as a used car salesman in hell.)
309 should be a turning point. In 309 we need to start to see reality breaking down around the characters and the characters actually start reacting to it. Because that’s the problem - while we have noticed the weirdness, the characters have almost deliberately ignored it.
According to the leaked synopses Allison starts to suspect someone close to her is involved in the murders - that’s not a long list, but prime suspect material are obviously Gerard, Chris and Morrell. But the funny thing, to me, is that she should have been suspecting that this week, or even in 308, not a week after that, so maybe whatever is keeping them from being suspicious is finally breaking down.
Same goes for the Lydia connection - something about her rising talents helping them to find the murderer, except we just had a whole episode that was all about Stiles trying to use her talents for that express purpose and nothing happened. So 309 is perhaps a breaking point where the veil starts to shift. I want to see scenes like in 302 where weird shit happens and they look around confused AND THEN TALK ABOUT IT. POINT AT IT AND GO “WTF”.
Then in 310 we have another shift to a new catastrophic event in a very isolated situation. They’re trapped in the hospital by a storm. The storm that’s been brewing and showing up at random on seemingly nice, sunny days. It’s also a strange mirroring to 210 where they were trapped a the police station. IF they are going through stuff they’ve done before because their minds are conjuring up familiar scenarios, this one is bound to be cathartic and set the end game in motion.
311 sounds like it’s still the same situation, so I’m going to assume that it’s a direct continuation of 310. They’re still at the hospital, Cora’s life is in danger and Scott needs to make some hard choices.
And then in 312 there is supposedly a ritual that will help them get it all - save everyone, defeat Deucalion, no losses, and all they have to do is risk the danger. Does that sound familiar?
I think what is going to happen is that Scott is going to sacrifice himself. Everyone thinks Scott is this super awesome alpha, but the true nature of a savior type narrative like the Neo one in Matrix or, frankly, the Jesus one, is that of personal sacrifice for the greater good. The hero gives himself up, his own dreams and desires, and offers that in exchange for everyone else to get a second chance.
And then he wakes up. Giving himself up is going to be the thing that shatters the illusion and Scott finds that he and his friends were trapped by the Darach.
The alpha pack can be real or a construct of the Darach. In the world they’re occupying right now, I still kind of hope the pack abandons Deucalion and chooses to walk away, or maybe in Ethan’s case even join with Scott. Though I don’t think I can forgive them what happened if this is all real, I believe it makes sense as something Derek would conjure up for himself as punishment.
Anyway, if the mind fuck idea is true, I would have long ago had one character start obviously doubting the reality around them. Maybe have them mention it to others only to get blank stares etc, but someone for us to hold up and go “wait a minute”. I feel like there are too many threads and we don’t know how it might unravel.
Btw, if the alpha pack are NOT REAL, here’s a thought - at some point we called Erica and Isaac the murder twins, remember that? And Boyd was always the strong silent one, like Ennis. And Derek and Kali seem clearly well-matched as mirrors for each other. That leaves Deucalion and Scott, the supposed destined leaders with super great potential. The alpha pack are dark shades of our characters. And look! Blake has been said to be Stiles-ish.
I’m just throwing ides out at this point, but honestly, this season is still salvageable. Give us a good reason why we skip from event to event with an emotional reset button, anything, a dream state, a mind-bending power, anything, and this can still be good.

Going on the “mirrors” speculation. Remember what Orny tweeted? “You can’t die if you aren’t real.” Well, maybe Boyd isn’t dead. Maybe it was all something made up and planted in this alternate reality? By the Alphas or the Darach, who really knows. With all the plot holes this season, I’m not going to be surprised if everything that has happened turns out to be some big hallucination.
