One thing I don’t understand in Teen Wolf fanfictions
is why is Laura always depicted as this girl who tries to get over her grief and have a normal happy life and Derek this moody guy who is obsessed with the fire and wants nothing but revenge, when it actually is the exact contrary?
Like, it’s Laura who came back to Beacon Hills first, and Derek just came after her…
its because derek slept with the chick who burned their family alive and no-one knows this but him (right?)
laura was probably able to get over her grief slightly better without the guilt that derek has
at least thats how i see it
Yeah there’s really plenty of possibilities since we don’t know a lot about Laura!
(My headcanon is that they are both grieving as much as the other but express it in very different ways. Derek’s reaction is to close himself from the world, drowning in his guilt and not trying to get out of it; and Laura’s reaction is to fight, to try to understand what happened, and maybe to seek out revenge. And even if from the outside she looks like she ‘got over it’ and is trying to live a normal life, she’s still keeping track on what is happening in BH, at least enough to see that picture of a deer. And when she left, she didn’t tell Derek why since he learnt about the picture by Scott. But that’s just me. :’D)
I really can’t wait to learn more about her in S3 (apparently there will be a lot of flashback!)!
