Wireless Connection - Part 47
Derek! (I forgot your triskele I’m so sorry! damnit. >n<)
And there’s that moment, where it’s just you and him, and your heart is so heavy you could choke on it. Over and over in your head, like a broken record, will I ever see you again?
when the media gives you shitty lgbtq “representation”, don’t be satisfied
make the media taKE THE “REPRESENTATION” BACK
I DON’T WANT YOUR DAMN QUEERBAITING, WHAT AM I SUPPOSED TO DO WITH THIS?!
DEMAND TO SEE THE MEDIA’S MANAGER. MAKE THE MEDIA RUE THE DAY IT THOUGHT IT COULD CONVINCE AN ENTIRE COMMUNITY THAT DUMBLEDORE WAS ADEQUATE REPRESENTATION
I wish I could make gifs!
The hunter doesn’t hit on Stiles, Stiles hits on him. Even better to me because, you know, Stiles now has an eye for guys who check him out.
While Lydia is speaking Spanish trying to get into the club, Stiles notices the guy checked him out when they walk up and gives him a Significant Look. I think I grabbed the wrong frame there before his eyes switch (this is why gifs, ugh), but at any rate he’s looking at Stiles before and after he closes his eyes and shakes his head in refusal.
Stiles does something suggestive with his mouth and throat indicative of a certain personal capacity. (How do you know, Stiles?) Hot Calavera grins and mouths something but keeps his arms folded. Stiles pulls the card out. They continue to make eye contact at brief intervals. Hot Calavera watches Stiles until he enters the club.
I’m tacking this on so I don’t straight off repeat myself on that one.
It’s funny to me Stiles’ bisexuality, or, er, blatant type, is in question. A little short of funny, actually, because at its best it’s become…biresistant.
Ship free version…
There’s Jeff explicitly saying they’ve hinted he’s bisexual in S1 and S2, so we’re looking for actual incidents versus supposition. Next, this behavior’s around Derek, Scott, Danny, and now Hot Calavera. Three’s a pattern, what’s four?
And then, besides body language dudes around him don’t share…
Besides hitting on distinctly similar people out loud…
Stiles: All right, I’m with you. And I also gotta say this new - found heroism is making me very attracted to you.
Scott: Shut up.
Stiles: No, seriously.
[Scott’s shocked trying to figure out if he’s serious face before deciding it’s a joke]
Stiles: Do you wanna just try making out for a sec? Just to see how it feels.
Stiles: Hey, your ass is fine.
Stiles: Do you find me attractive?
Stiles: Oh. That was so sweet. Are you kidding?
And dialogue feeling out his interest in guys…
Sheriff: You’re not gay.
Stiles: Wha - I could be.
Stiles: So you also like boys?
Caitlyn: Absolutely. Do you?
And the giant close up of his need to reflect on his answer…
Besides that glorious but easy to miss reaction to realizing he touched the butt…
My personal favorite is in the cinematography, with the array of lasers pointing repeatedly to the obvious:
Scott: Dude, everyone in here’s a dude. I think we’re in a gay club.
Are you talking about calicokat-teenwolf’s post? There wasn’t any “hitting on” by the hunter in the full sense of making a pass at Stiles or something like that. He didn’t say anything to Stiles to indicate his interest. But our Calavera friend did send him some very curious looks in my opinion. I think he liked what he saw. ;)
Stiles: Man, nothing gets past those keen werewolf senses, huh, Scott?
Which, in terms of everyone failing to see Stiles is submerged in queerness, is so totally ‘shots fired’.
Firstly calicokat-teenwolf i want to marry this post!!! Beautifully summarized. And also i present to you Stiles and hot calavaras guy gifs!
There is more - see the whole exchange here!
And may i add young Stilinski seems to have a very distinct type… dark haired, stubbly, handsome, expressive eyebrows, oodles of sass…. remind you of anyone???
In 2009, Pratt was cast on Parks and Rec for a six-episode arc as the oafish boyfriend of Rashida Jones’ character. That soon changed. “Almost at the point of the audition we were like, ‘Oh, we have to reconceive this, because this guy’s the funniest person we’ve ever seen. We’re not letting that guy go,” says series co-creator Michael Schur - Entertainment Weekly
I should be sleeping.
Besides the fact that Jeff Davis has mentioned the possibility of Stiles’ bisexuality (the mysterious bisexual character probably being Caitlin), personally I think it’s like 98.99999999% canon that Stiles has at least thought about getting it on with a guy once. Plus, I think Scott’s not only so casual about it ‘cause being as straight as a rainbow coloured Slinky is pretty much normal in Beacon Hills, I think he’s casual about it because he’s used to his bestie’s sexually confused ramblings for years. I can literally see Stiles calling Scott at 3am like ‘dude I’m thinking about dicks again, does that mean I’m gay’ and Scott’s just like ‘jeezus go back to sleep and think about dicks tomorrow’
When I started Stargate, I got the part, I was SO thrilled to have this INCREDIBLE character, to be playing someone in the military. I had SO much respect, to be playing someone who’s so smart and so liberated and… I thought “Yes!”
I had two weeks to move from Toronto to Vancouver. I flew out there, I had my first wardrobe fitting. And one of the things that was in… THE thing that was in the wardrobe room was a very low-cut tank top and a push-up bra…
And I turned to the costume designer - whom I’ve worked with since, who’s wonderful - and I said “What… What is this?”
And she said “Well.. they wanna see what you look like in it.”
And I said “…but this… NOBODY in the military, no captain in the US airforce would wear this… while her male counterparts are wearing crewneck t-shirts and… I c… I can’t do it!”
And she said “Well, they just wanna see what you look like and take a picture and…”
I was like “…”.
And I PANICKED because I thought, I had just been given this AMAZING opportunity - I didn’t know it would last 10 years but I knew it was gonna be a kick-ass show - and I was like… “I can’t do it…”
And I started to cry and I said “You have to go upstairs and tell them I’m not doing it. And if it means that they recast the part then recast the part but you’ve cast a smart woman and you’ve cast somebody who has NEVER tried to get a job based on her looks or her body, I’ve always played strong, smart women, I… I can’t do it. So if they wanna recast the part I totally get it but I’m not playing THAT version of this character.”
But I’m saying this while I’m blubbering because I’m suffering that I’ve just lost maybe the best job of my career…
And so she said “Okay” and I said “I’m sorry, I’m sorry, I’m sorry, I’ve NEVER been difficult, I don’t… but I CAN’T do that!”
So she went upstairs and she came back down and she said “Okay, no problem.”
And I said “Okay, so what’s my costume?”
And she said “Well…”
And I said “Just… What are the guys wearing?”
So she handed me a black T-Shirt and the BDUs, which is what my character would wear in the field with her male counterparts, and that’s where we went from there.
But that to me was the defining moment of…
And I STILL cry about it because I still remember that young woman on the verge of breaking into the… new something big, being petrified that she was gonna loose it, but… I knew that I couldn’t play the TNA version of Sam Carter.
Every time I read this I’m so moved, because I just remember loving her character so much and being amazed by her, and how did this character come to be? Well, the answer is a young, brave woman: Amanda Tapping.
