After a terrible accident, Lydia ends up in the hospital, unconscious, and in critical condition. Stiles visits her and talks to her about his feelings. Thanks to Lydia’s supernatural abilities, she’s able to feel like she’s standing right next to him and can hear everything that he’s saying.
I believe we have a choice in this world about how to tell sad stories. On the one hand, you can sugar coat it. The way they do in movies and romance novels. Where beautiful people learn beautiful lessons. Where nothing is too messed up that can’t be fixed with an apology and a Peter Gabriel song. I like that version just as much as the next girl does, believe me. It’s just not the truth. This is the truth… sorry.
Stiles, great kid, zero ability to focus, super smart, never takes advantage of his talents.
Then I realize what it is. It’s him. Something about him makes me feel like I am about to fall. Or turn to liquid. Or burst into flames.
