Our goal is to create a space for Sterek fans to interact by sharing their favorite videos, fanfics and art in one place. We want to give everyone a shot at having their work showcased equally in a place where all content is properly sourced.
If you aren’t familiar with Reddit, content is rated up/down by users so the more the community likes your work, the better chance you have at reaching a wider audience! Follower counts don’t matter so it’s a great way for less popular blogs to showcase any work they’re proud of.
If the sub gets off the ground we’ll possibly have competitions or ‘work of the week’ type posts where we put recent, special, fan-favorite posts in the sidebar for a week.
All we need is you to submit your favorite content, be it your own or someone elses (as long as it’s sourced!), to get off the ground and establish a community for Sterek fans. Signal boosts would also be very appreciated!
Mod applications are open, become an Alpha today and help the community out!
So you'd still ship Sterek if Tyler Hoechlin and Dylan O'brien weren't white?
Of course I would.
I doubt there are many people that really consider appearance or race to be a big factor in shipping. Attractiveness adds to it, having attractive characters makes them more enjoyable to watch. Who doesn’t like their OTPs to be easy on the eyes? As for race, there’s no reason why a non-white character would be any less attractive than a white one. Just look at Keahu Kahuanui and Bianca Lawson, they’re both gorgeous.
If you want two characters to be together simply because they’re white or they’re attractive, it’s not real. That’s not what shipping is about.
I ship Sterek for the chemistry. I don’t ship them for their appearance. Appearance literally isn’t a factor for me. I’ve shipped and do ship pairings where I don’t find either or both party attractive at all, but that doesn’t change how I feel about them as a couple.
The Sterek hate. Omfg I literally thought it was some kind of misunderstanding until I read the hater’s blog. What the actual fuck, Tumblr? Why are people supporting her? Why can’t people have a rational argument without having a superiority complex? WHY CAN’T PEOPLE HAVE A RATIONALARGUMENT AT ALL?
JFC you can not like a ship without attacking the fans and tagging your misdirected hate. I’m so sick of people who ship ‘smaller’ ships getting pissed off at the ships with larger fanbases.
So what if I wrote a NonCon semi-AU songfic where Derek is a stalker and Stiles is his mate but he knows Stiles would never understand. So he stalks him and takes pictures of him and has a huge wall of photographs on his bedroom wall. And Stiles goes looking for evidence that Derek killed Laura (S1 first eps k) and finds the wall while Derek is presumably out. And Derek finds him in his room and freaks out because Stiles wasn’t supposed to find out about this and knocks him out and Stiles wakes up in the basement suspended by chains and Derek starts to touch him and Stiles calls him psychotic but Derek knows he can’t let Stiles go until he loves him
