"It’s the result of evolution and overpopulation!"
[Cross-posted from “The Comment Section" on Asexuality Archive]
The overpopulation one also relies on the idea that a) asexuality means not having sex and b) asexuality means not reproducing… neither of which are true for asexuality (even if they are true for some individual asexuals). There are plenty of asexuals who want children and who will have sex to obtain those children, even without sexual attraction. And there are quite a few people of various sexual attraction experiencing sexual orientations who are adamantly child free. The absence or presence of sexual attraction probably has little baring on the desire to reproduce.
All of my Chris/Derek feels are back. I didn’t want to think about them before because who ever knows if any characters are ever going to interact ever again on Teen Wolf. But they did. And I’ve spent the last three days crying about them while I was delivering stuff down south and couldn’t get on the internet.
I just… Derek told Chris, a hunter, the brother of the woman who did this to him, a person who by all logic he should not be devolving his weaknesses to… Derek told him. Told him first and wants his help and Christ is probably the only other person besides Derek (and, questionably, Peter) that has the same depth of knowledge about werewolf stuff. Chris knows and Chris can understand.
And now all I want is Chris being there for him as he loses the rest of his power. Like when Derek looses his fangs and his claws and his strength Chris teaches Derek how to fight without them. How to throw a punch without shattering his hand. How to use his opponents momentum against them because he’s not physically stronger anymore. How to shoot a gun. Telling a frustrated Derek that he gets it, how Derek’s weapons used to, literally, be at the tips of his fingers, but now he has to learn to make anything he has in his hands a weapon. Chris teaches Derek all the little hunter tricks that have kept humans like him alive for centuries against the supernatural. Not treating Derek like he’s suddenly less than, like he’s useless or like the wolf was the only important part of him that anyone could ever want him for… just that he needs to learn a new set of skills.
I’m so sad about this pairing.
