In 1x01, when we first meet Derek, Stiles knew who he was and immediately recognized him in the woods. He knew about the Hale fire, so obviously he studied on Derek before then
Stiles was afraid of Derek all the way through season 1 but confronted him anyway and hid his fear, like in 1x02 in the police cruiser or in 3x10 where Stiles confronts Derek about the whole Jennifer deal and Derek just lets him
The pool scene, “I’m the one keeping you alive!”. Derek turns to push Stiles away from the kanima at the pool, even though he could have done like Scott did with Allison in 1x12 and just told him to run but didn’t. Plus, Stiles held Derek and himself up for hours, until he literally couldn’t anymore
The car scenes, especially the one outside the sheriff’s station (2x02). The teasing way Derek says “I’m thinking about punching you in the face”, when there was no need for that. Plus the music playing in the background of that scene (“but how, how, how they like you”)
The elevator scene in 3x10. Scott sees Derek on the floor of the stopped elevator, but doesn’t stop to help (to be fair, Jennifer was gonna take his mom so). Stiles has previously, up to several times, claimed to not care about Derek and want him dead. And yet he stops and tries to wake him up by slapping him in the face, obviously freaking out because Derek won’t wake up, until he remembers the punch that got Derek to wake up the last time in 1x04
The fact that scenes with Stiles and Derek in them quickly becomes the best scenes of a season, because of the chemistry they have when they talk/bicker
The fact that Stiles spend a whole summer with Derek between season 2 and 3 learning about the Alpha pack (without telling Scott, might I add)
The fact that Derek could have imagined anyone (like Scott) in the season 3b finale but imagined Stiles (I’m taking this as a sign that says Stiles is Derek’s anchor tbh) and Stiles helped him getting back to reality
The fact that Stiles recognized Derek immediately in 4x01 after Derek got deaged by Kate
The fact that Stiles knew about Derek and Kate’s relationship and kept it a secret from Scott, even though they’re best friends and tell each other everything. But not this
During all of season 3b, Derek worries about Stiles and uses all his time to find him
The fact that Derek knows Stiles’ scent immediately and has to teach Scott, Stiles’ very best friend for years now, to feel the anxiety Derek feels immediately on the top of the hospital roof in 3x18
The fact that Stiles doesn’t even hesitate to say yes when he thinks Derek is asking him to go into the bank vault where Erica and Boyd are held captive with him (3x02)
The fact that Derek almost killed Jennifer after she kidnapped Stiles’ dad and left Stiles in tears
The look Derek gives Stiles the whole time they have dinner with Scott’s dad in 4x02
The fact that after Boyd’s death, everyone stayed away from Derek. Except for Stiles. Stiles came over and laid a hand on Derek’s shoulder to comfort him
The bickering (like an old married couple), the sarcastic conversations, the communication via eyebrows
The fact that Stiles spend time listening to Cora tell him about the whole Paige thing and why Derek went away for a bit (3x08)
Derek was the king on Stiles’ chessboard
“Okay, big guy. Let’s see it. Let’s see that fist. Big ol’ fist. […] Big bad wolf.”
“Don’t be such a sour wolf.”
“My cousin… Miguel." (Every scene with Stiles and Derek in 1x09 was gold)
“Oh, I don’t know, Derek. I think you two make a pretty good pair." - Matt in 2x10
I could go on for ages, to be honest.
- I am never annoyed by asks, send as many as you like
- I will answer your asks, even if they are absurd
- I will answer your asks, even if we haven’t interacted
- I love asks
- I love you
- I LOVE YOU
Tyler (on how Shelley and Tyler first met): My truly most embarrassing moment was when I went into the hair and make-up trailer, and I was aware that Jill Wagner who plays Kate was back on the show and I’d gone in. I had some stuff on my hands and hair, and I see this one getting her hair done, so it’s just this side hair thing and it’s very similar to Jill. And I came to give her a hug, just thought I’d run over and say hi. So I ran over, gave her a kiss on the cheek, turned, definitely not Jill, and I immediately went, “You’re not Jill, you’re not Jill, I just insulted you, I’m so sorry. Oh, my God, hi, I’m Tyler, nice to meet you.”
Holland: In Tyler Hoechlin’s world, a kiss on the cheek is an insult.
Tyler: I just invaded her personal space!
If the possibility of a redemption curve came up for Ward, how would the rest of the team react?
