Because it seems that no matter what Soctt does, the fandom is always pissed at him.
*whispers* my problem with him is how he treated Stiles and Derek in season 2 and 3. He was never called out, and he never apologized. I’m blaming Jeff Davis’ writing though.
*whispers* There is no reason for Scott to apologize to Derek. Derek abused, manipulated, and threatened Scott and his friends throughout all of seasons one and two. When Scott was struggling after he was turned against his will by Derek’s uncle, Derek refused to help him unless he bowed down to him and became part of his pack. When Scott tried to warn Boyd about being turned by Derek, Derek sicked Erica and Isaac on Scott and then beat Scott up himself. And even though Derek treated Scott like literal shit, Scott still risked his life by going into the Argents’ home in order to look for the wolfsbane bullet he needed to save Derek’s life. Not to mention that if it wasn’t for Scott’s personality, Stiles would’ve left Derek for dead on the side of the road. Derek should be apologizing to Scott.
*whispers a li’l louder* Scott has been nothing but supportive of Stiles throughout the entire series. When Stiles chained Scott up and treated him like a dog because Lydia kissed him, Scott forgave him and didn’t hold a grudge. When Stiles had a group of guys beat Scott up because he was still angry about the Lydia thing, Scott forgave him and didn’t hold a grudge. In season three, their love for one another was solidified when Stiles was willing to die with Scott. Any problems they might have had in the past have obviously been resolved.
*whispers but actually screams* Derek is an adult. Scott is a child. Derek is a born werewolf. Scott is a newly-turned werewolf trying to get used to his new life. In season three, Derek trusted Scott more than any other character. He and Scott worked together on multiple occasions, looked out for one another, and expressed honest concern for one another. Like with Stiles, it was more than implied that Derek and Scott fixed whatever issues they had in the past.
*screams* Scott doesn’t need to be called out because he learns from his mistakes, unlike certain other characters. He grows and progresses as a human so he doesn’t make the same mistakes twice. It’s called character development.
It’s not shitty writing that’s to blame, it’s your shitty tunnel vision that keeps you from paying attention to anything other than “poor Stiles” and “poor Derek”. If anyone should be apologizing to anyone, it’s the Sterek fandom to Scott Fucking McCall.
