guess i’ll just keep reblabbing this oh well
Never getting over this. Ever.
Doesn’t look like Derek is either tbh
The LOOK Derek gives Stiles…. *clutches chest* Nope, never getting over this moment either.
This moment also makes me want to cry because Derek is so used to everybody trying to hurt him. (Electrocuting him, chaining him up, stabbing him, forcing him to bite people, stabbing him through the back with a pole, scratching him up, forcing him to kill one of his pack members, etc.) He’s not use to this kind of gentle touch―a touch that isn’t meant to do him harm whatsoever.
When Stiles touches Derek, it’s like it electrifies him. It confuses him. It fogs him mind for a split second before he snaps himself back to reality because he’s not used to it. He’s not use to somebody’s touch.
We all know Derek has a wall up so that people can’t get close to him. Jennifer was only able to get close to him by sacrificing those virgins and getting the “how-to” on how to successfully seduce Derek. But other than that, Derek’s completely closed off. Hell, can Derek even remember the last time somebody touched him without wanting to kill him, trick him, and/or manipulate him???
This is why Derek is going to end up with Stiles. Stiles is legitimately the only person who completely shatters Derek’s defensive layer, leaving Derek with this same look of bewilderment and interest. Stiles keeps bringing Derek to these more human moments where we get to see what’s behind Derek’s wall.
It keeps happening…
