I SHIP THIS SO DAMN HARD, LIKE YOU HAVE NO IDEA.
Honestly it started when these two discovered the hidden freezer full of bodies. I was like, should I? I was hesitant, because I’ve spent the first 3 seasons gushing over Stydia and loving how their friendship was blossoming - from a non-caring Lydia and a puppy-dog-eyed Stiles, into a sweet and special relationship. And when Malia came along, though I find her and Stiles to be extremely cute together, my Stydia heart still had hope.
But when these two found those bodies, my mind just clicked. A part of me was REALLY hoping for some more scenes, anything really, to just happen and give me a big enough excuse to justify myself into shipping them. You know, so that my Stydia conscience wouldn’t nag me.
And when Parrish started talking to Sheriff Stilinski about her, I was like, STRIKE 1. And when Parrish asked Meredith a question, and Lydia just glanced at him, I was like, STRIKE EFFIN 2.
Needless to say, when this scene came up, I was practically screaming.
I still ship Stydia - it was a part of me for a good 3 years, and it’s hard to just let it go. I’m okay with shipping them as really special friends, even best friends, if the show permits it and makes them so.
But oh my god, these two. The ship has sailed. I repeat, THE MARRISH SHIP HAS SAILED. And I’ll be waiting patiently and religiously for some action to happen.
Until then, let the fanfics begin.
