I actually very much adore Malia’s honesty and coyote’ ways.. and how Stiles is easing her into human society. LOOOVE her and love this relationship!! <3
And honestly, hearing about her coyote’s ways really shows what she has been doing these past several years.. the way she lived and thought and behaved.. I used to think that this was not quite making sense.. How was she acting so normal (and not to mention sexual) like a teenager in the last season even though she was turned into a coyote as a little girl. Shouldn’t she be more innocent and still have a mind of a little girl? BUT THAT IS THE THING. Those years as a coyote taught her how to survive and she really was thinking like a coyote. And here, seeing this scene, I finally understand how she survived these past several years and that she literally lived in the coyote’s ways. This makes so much sense to me now.
THANK YOU, THIS RIGHT HERE! AW YISS!!
Actually I even thin in some ways, the ways that don’t involve pop culture, table manner and being a teenager, Malia is even more grown up then some of our other babies! I mean she lived alone, in the woods, fending for herself! Yes her actions are radical and rash but she LITERALLY LIVED AS A FREAKING COYOTE, what do you expect? And she is lacking manners and a filter but, hey, have we ever hated on Trazan or Princess Mononoke for that? And yes she is rude to Lydia but if you rly look at is she is rude to everyone! Oh you are saying now but what is with stiles? She is nice to him! OF FUCKING COURSE! Not only was Stiles the first one who rly interacted with her after she turned human again, like rly interacted for longer periods not just said hi like Scott (Scott did great of course but it takes a little more like that), so she kinda imprinted on him, looks at him for guidance, her rough exterior is a way to cover up how insecure she is. And then please don’t forget that Stiles and Malia also went through a lot of shit together which makes the bond even thicker!
Also srly? We are hating on Malia bc she gets to kiss Stiles and “omg that bitch, Stiles and Lydia are so otp” and “She is such a bitch for being mean to Lydia” and bla bla bla, but we never talk about how shitty Lydias behavior towards Stiles is? I mean I like her, I ryl do, her character development is awesome, but there were a lot of occasions where she just treated him like utter shit, even in the later seasons!
leading him on on multiple occasions btw And I’m not saying that Lydias actions (eg Kissing Stiles when he has a panic attack and then giving him the cold shoulder again and getting with Aidan) aren’t justified, no rly she has a lot on her plate and sometimes you kiss someone and then realize thats just not for you and thats fine, but as much as Lydias actions are justified so are Malias! as explained above
So yes, I do agree that Stiles and Malias relationship is quick, and that Malia is kinda pushed in our face a bit, but if you rly look at it, if you rly watch, then you’ll see that in the few episodes shes in she actually had a better explained origin story and more character development and overall depth than e.g. Kira
who, even though she is kick as and all that, still just seems like Alisons replacement … So if we wanna talk about sth then why not about why Cora or Kira turned out so flat or why the overall quality of the show went down since Season 3 …
