I just pictured Derek having one single comeback for every argument:
"Derek, you’ve lost every battle so far"
"Yeah, but I’m the King on Stiles’ board"
"Derek, he’s kissed lots of girls and he-"
"But I’m the King on his board"
"Derek, he’s not-"
"King on his board"
"Derek, he’s trying to kill people and-"
"King. on. the. board."
"Wait. Who is she on Stiles’ board?"
"Well she’s not there…"
"Too bad for her. I’m the King on Stiles’ board.”
when u start lusting over someone but then realise you actually have a really big crush on them
I just felt obligated to draw this before I prepare to go to school.

It may seem a little counter-intuitive, but magic is really only as strong as its limits. Dracula, Anne Rice’s vampires, and the Cullens share plenty of the same powers and abilities, to varying degrees. They’re identifiable as vampires because of their superhuman traits and their desire to drink human blood. But the power of each version’s impact on popular culture is directly related to how many strong limits each has in its mythos. Sure, Dracula was the first vampire to really explode on the pop culture scene. But I believe the reason why he’s still popular after nearly a hundred years is because his character has strong limits. Anne Rice’s vampires don’t have quite as many limits, but there’s still a good balance between the things they can do and the things they can’t. The Cullens are only restricted when they decide to be.
Every modern vampire is some variation of Dracula, and Charlaine Harris credits Anne Rice as a major influence on the vampires of her Sookie Stackhouse novels (and the subsequent HBO adaptation, True Blood). But no one has copied the vampires of Twilight, and I don’t think anyone will. The Cullens just don’t have enough limits. Limits either create problems for a character (restricting their abilities), or create solutions for the character’s opponents (a recipe for their destruction). Problems are what make good stories; the more problems, the more story potential for the character. With the infinite power of pure magic, any story with magical elements is only as strong as its limits.

My mother says that fanfiction doesn’t count as reading because “it isn’t nearly as good as the stuff that’s published. You’re not going to find something online that will win a Booker Prize.”
Please reblog if you count fan fiction as reading, or if the fanfiction you’ve read is equally as good as published novels. I want to see the figures.
