Necromancer Werewolves: My Theory on Some of the Crazy Mythology of Teen Wolf

Happy Valentine’s Day, everyone! Completely in spite of the holiday, I’d like to present a theory to you that I’ve been working on for a while now.

Teen Wolf has a plethora of crazy mythology, but when they introduced the concept of blue eyes in Season 3a, I rose an eyebrow. Not necessarily because I didn’t buy it, but because I thought that their reasoning didn’t explain all of it. In the episode “Visionary,” Peter Hale (an unreliable source at best), tells Stiles that when a wolf kills an innocent, his eyes turn from yellow to blue. Okay, fine, but why does this physical change occur?

They may be pretty, but the eye color comes with a cost.

There could be couple of reasons behind this so-called “innocent life-taking” change. One could be that it is the feelings of guilt that can affect the color of a werewolf’s eyes, like a mood ring. But this explanation has inherent pitfalls of its own. Why only guilt? Wouldn’t other emotions, strong emotions, also effect eye color then? What about fear, or anger? What about happiness or love? The only eye colors we see are yellow for “innocence,” blue for “guilty,” and red for “leader.” There is no evidence that merely their guilt is enough to change their eyes.

Another reason could be a sort of karmic badge. Killing a person costs a heavy karmic debt, and if wolves happen to be susceptible to that sort of thing, could possibly turn a wolf’s eyes blue. But again, what about other karmic debt? What about years of piling smaller karmic infractions onto your soul? Would that not then also change the wolf’s eyes to blue? We don’t see much evidence of this either, as all the wolves that have blue eyes (with perhaps the exception of Derek) has more than earned them one way or another.

A more likely reason is that of a sort of necromancy that changes the werewolf’s eye color. Here’s how I think it happens:

Beacon Hills Reboot: Outtakes (Part One)

So, the Beacon Hills Reboot: Part One has been up for a couple of weeks now. I’ve gotten some amazing comments on it, and more kudos than I’ve ever expected. Thank you all so much! I wasn’t sure how much people would like it, considering it’s pretty much in the point of view of a character that had died before she had any screen time. Also, it had very little smut in it, which was another thing that I wasn’t sure would go over well. (The internet is for porn, after all.) So thank you all so much for your kind words. 😀

I am deeply grateful for my amazing friend, The Barenaked Critic for editing this behemoth for me, and for encouraging me to keep going when I felt like it was silly, or badly written, or that no one would care. If it wasn’t for her, I don’t thing this dumb thing would have existed at all–and certainly not posted online.

Also, through the course of the story, I cut out a few scenes and other little tidbits that, yes, dragged the story down, but, you know, weren’t bad or anything. For example, I had originally planned for Laura to meet Allison and Lydia at her coffee shop before the game… but the scene was unnecessary and ended up on the editing room floor. I also had a whole scene about Laura’s birthday that got similar treatment.

The parts that I feel most aggrieved about cutting, however, were some of the comments that were passed back and forth between myself and M (aka The Barenaked Critic) during the editing of this monster. So, to thank everyone for their comments and encouragement, I’m going to share some of those tidbits with you. (They’re probably really dumb, but… here you go anyway! :D)

Teen Wolf, Season 3, Episode 8: Visionary

Only a few more episodes left until the end of Season 3A (the first story arc). Like the last two seasons, this episode marks the end of the “second act,” putting all our questions on the board so that (hopefully) they’ll all be answered in the third act.

And it’s another flashback episode. Whereas Frayed just made me grit my teeth, this episode was actually good. (Probably because they set it up as a frame story with unreliable narrators).

Friday Fanfic Recs: Nerd!Derek

It’s Friday! I’m bringing back my fanfic recommendations! This week, it’s Teen Wolf, mostly because it’s my current obsession, and I have a backlog of hundreds of fics bookmarked from the fandom. So, for this week, I’ve selected a few of my favorite nerdy Derek fics, (Stiles/Derek in nature, because Sterek) and nothing is better than Derek being a total and utter nerd.
