WHICH UNHEALTHY RELATIONSHIP WE’D RATHER SEE
also quit pitting your female characters against each other over a romantic interest. i s2g, if this show makes some convoluted jealousy plot out of this, i am going to sneak into the teen wolf writers’ break room and spit in their coffee.
last night i was at savers and i love. LOVE savers because besides all the other wonderful shit you can find there, you can get great books for like a dollar, you can collect all the books you wanted to own but couldn’t afford at the time, you can get terri-bad trashy harlequins for 49 cents. savers is a beautiful place.
then i almost peed myself laughing reading the backs of the harlequins and imagining turning all of them into jeanmarco fics because i’m trash.
