Esmerelda, currently studying Illustration, with forever drifting attention that is currently interested in the funnies, fan art and flailings of Teen Wolf, Sherlock, and just about anything else that catches my eye.
Of all the things to get stuck on this episode, I got stuck on this. STUCK, I TELL YOU. Now, as for the why (I’ll try to be brief ‘cuz I can’t use the [[more]] tag in a photo post).
Back when movie direction was one of my actual curriculars, I attended one wonderful lesson that I always remembered vividly: one about subtle direction choices, and what they mean/convey/tell to the audience’s subconscious.
The main part was about this: when you’re filming about a character being in danger, it doesn’t matter how many other people are present, you must always, ALWAYS show first the reaction of the one that’s most emotionally involved. Of the one that’s got the deepest connection with/interest for the one in danger. We dissected a movie by Sergio Leone, we analyzed a particular scene, and my professor said something along the lines of: “Yes, sure, showing the sidekick/best friend’s reaction first, you could construct something interesting, even fun. But you always show the girlfriend’s reaction first. Because she LOVES the hero. And that’s what matters the most. The love.”
The showed us Derek’s reaction first here. So.
I GOT TOTALLY STUCK.
Scott? Can you do something?
#i was so messed up over this scene everyone #and the completely unquestioning unfaltering way he administers healing #and experiences death vicariously and REELS from it #in a better show we might’ve talked about this and what it means for scott #instead of making it about nogitsune-stiles’ and his appetite for chaos and overwrought grimdarkness #but how scott escorts someone from life to death and makes it painless for them #takes the brunt of the agony on himself and holds it close and doesn’t stop moving #HE IS TERRIFIED #and it’s treated with no gravity? #no biggie jeff davis. not like your hero protag just helplessly experienced HIS NIGHTMARE #and was given no time or space to react and process it. business as usual here at teen wolf. #sweetest baby empath you deserve so much better #sunshine prince scott mccall (via digivolvin)
"why shouldn’t i kill you? how many of us have you murdered?"
#the fact that the nogitsune had to keep convincing derek that chris wasn’t his ally#the fact that even though it was possessing derek and had control over him#it still needed to PERSUADE him to burn chris to death#not even the fact that chris was a part of the family who was responsible for derek’s entire family’s deaths#was enough to push derek to easily kill him#derek STILL struggled#because the real derek knew that chris had nothing to do with it#because the real derek would never kill an innocent person#BECAUSE THE REAL DEREK KNEW WHAT WAS RIGHT AND HE STRUGGLED WITH THE THING THAT KEPT MESSING WITH HIS MIND#BECAUSE THE REAL DEREK IS A FIGHTER AND NOT EVEN A FUCKING POWERFUL JAPANESE DEMON COULD EVER TAKE FULL CONTROL OVER HIM#GOD BLESS DEREK HALE#MY FUCKING HERO#MY //KING//#GOD I’M GOING TO TATTOO DEREK HALE OVER MY HEART (via alphavenger)
