Well butter my butt and call me a biscuit, they’re all romantic interests.
If one’s a coincidence, and two’s a pattern, what’s three?
I personally think Posey has been unhappy with the show and the fandom for at least a year, and it’s becoming more obvious.
From a Hollywood POV, it’s quite understandable. He’s supposed to be the star, the focus of the show and the fandom. But Dylan is the one who’s breaking into other roles, while Sterek is, statistically speaking, the focus of the fandom. And the fans are becoming more and more fond of Hoechlin all the time, as he spends more time on the con circuit and we get to know him better.
There’s also the fact that Posey has been acting since he was a child, but hasn’t taken time off to go to college, as Hoechlin did. So he has more riding on TW, he doesn’t have backup experience or perspective. His 12-y.o. humor is because yeah, he *is* rebelling against authority, and he doesn’t have the maturity yet to do it in a, well, grown-up way. He’s 22, and it *really* shows.
The thing is though, I don’t know where people (and, I presume, him) are getting the idea that the main character is the fan favourite.
There are SO MANY examples of that not being true.
I mean, Buffy was never the fan favourite. That was probably either Willow or Xander. Make Spike in later years.
In Arrow I think it’s fair to say that Felicity is the fan favourite.
And, yeah, I’m only using two examples but that’s mostly because I think if I start listing shows where the main character isn’t the fan favourite I’ll never stop.
Like, seriously, think about all your favourite shows and then think if the main character is your fav. Of course there are going to be many examples where they are, but there should be just as many examples where they aren’t.
Plus, look at the kind of character Scott is. He was never going to be a fan favourite.
He isn’t either tragic enough, mysterious enough, sarcastic enough, funny enough to be a fan fav and some mixture of those things tend to be what goes into making a fan fav. There’s other stuff, too, like just the right person getting the right part and having the right chemistry with the right person. Sarcasm, snark and banter are also key. There are lots of elements that go into being a fan favourite but Scott never had the right combination.
The fault in that doesn’t lie in fandom, it lies in with the writer(s) of the show, since they were the one(s) who decided what kind of character Scott was going to be.
For a lot of people (not everyone, obvs, but a lot of people) Stiles and Derek are just more interesting characters, so of course fans are going to be more interested in their struggles, their triumphs, their highs and their lows.
Scott… doesn’t really have any struggles or any lows. Certainly none like Stiles, Derek and probably Allison and Lydia have. Or, at least he hasn’t so far. Season 4 does seem to be changing that. Maybe. Hopefully.
People don’t like Posey because he’s painfully unprofessional. Even when the others dick around, they do have moments when they’re serious. It is literally cringe worthy to watch. Sometimes I laugh while I cringe but there’s only so much secondhand embarrassment that I can take even if he’s immune.
The addition of bitterness just sours the situation. There are characters that I hate in shows, but I adore their actors in interviews. Okay, maybe Posey is disappointed that he’s not the fan favorite - and by playing a presumably adorable hero main character he assumed it would swing severely in the other direction.
But newsflash about fandom: our adoration must be earned. We’re not going to love you just because your name is on the title sequence. We may not even love you because your story arc makes us feel things. You yourself have to present us with something more than a sunny smile and a joke.
Respect is a given. Love and devotion is not. And making it clear that you resent us for it is at both counterproductive and not our problem.
I really tried to like him after his Sterek tantrum again and I almost made it but he fucked up okay. Multiple times. He’s just immature and pathetic and ridiculous and he doesn’t give us any reasons to treat him the way he wants.
I definitely totally dislike him at this point. I still like Scott even though he also got his problems, but pls don’t talk with me about Posey he’s the worst. (and with that I mean pls talk with me about Posey but don’t expect me to say anything nice.)
I’ve said some of it to a lot of people in discussions topics about Tw and his main character. Scott isn’t a complex character, he is a kid who was turned into a mythological creature, that got a little trouble, but he has mom and dad, he has a girlfriend, he has a best friend that drops ANYTHING to go help him and in all the process made two other friends, and a lot of allies. He has faults, [ that a lot of people don’t see] but they’re not prominent, he is flatty, he lacks salt, and the only ones to blame for it are the creators. Because compared to the spaz, hyperactive, smart mouth and brilliant teenager without mother is a HELL lot better constructed than him, who’s at fault?
If a born werewolf with shades of creepy, beastilly beautiful and broken, that lost his whole familly and was deceived for almost all the persons in his life[ includding Scott] is better constructed than him, who’s at fault?
If the love interest girl, is always a badass motherfucker fighter who that handles guns or swords, are always sweet, funny and fearles, and a lot more interesting than him, who’s at fault/
The girl was supposed to be brainless, only like beautiful jock boys is in really a math gennius, sarcastic, carismatic who was troubles in home, that was mentally and physically abused and a hell more interesting than him, who’s at fault?
EVERYONE IN THE SHOW HAS A BETTER ARC THAN HIM, IT’S NOT FANS FAULT IF HE’S NOT WELL WRITTEN.
But above all things Tyler Posey make easy not love him. Personally I used to like him, and dislike Scott, and just when I was learning how to like Scott, posey fucked everything up for me. I used to tag him like ‘Tyler Wonderful Posey Everyone’ because I truly believed that he was a goofy cutie patootie.
The first time TP broke my heart I cried for two hours straight because I was ashamed that someone could think that something that I put so love into, and that helped me thought the days I could hardly breathe was weird, twisted and bizarre. I was ASHAMED FOR BEING.
I’m a black pansexual girl that already have gone thought a lot of prejudice in my like, get on a fandom, that is a place that should be a family and a comfort, a place to feel safe and happy- and get it, I HAVE IT ALL- but have to go through and see my loved ones go through it. is awful in all senses. Because if someone shame you in real life you can discuss, you can try and change the personal worldview, it would not work, but you get to try. You get to fight, you get to defend yourself and your loved ones. HOW YOU DO THAT WHEN A FAMOUS PERSON MOCK AND DISRESPECT YOU AND YOUR LOVED ONES?
You dont. You will be sad, you’ll be hurt, you’ll rage, but only people like you will hear you, You’ll have to hear for people who should be hurt like you that it was your fault that because you didn’t love him, you made him feel unappreciated, so you should really be ashamed. You’ll be hurt twice.
But time goes, and for myself I blocked him, his posts, his pictures, everything tagged about him, if he can’t respect you, he don’t deserve your love.
And then he strikes again, he is rude with another fan, he mock a question a fan question, laugh at fan works, and gives no credit to the team that not only was kind to the fandom, cast and creators, that did charity, not to be on the shine spot, but to help people, who stayed in the shadows and ironically donated money in his name. He gave the award that those people - even though they will not receive, have earned -to another person, that was there in the right time.
Tyler Posey was nothing but disrespectful and uncaring to the sterek fandom, that I am part, and have NONE problem in tell to anyone, I’m sterek shipper first and teen wolf fan - not anymore- latter Because while the first gave me a family, friends that I can call crying when i’m in my worse, that share with me laughs in my better moments, Teen Wolf gave me homophobic people to try to talk, sad and hurt with character deaths, a lot of plot holes and a hole lot of frustration. It gave me a cast to love, yes, it gave me two awesome actors with a ‘undeniable chemistry’ to ship yes, but at what cost?
The cost of being trodden down, ashamed, queerbaited, mocked and then thrown in the trash.
So yeah, I don’t like Tyler Posey. I won’t say shit a bout him, I won’t spread hate, I won’t shame you for like him, and I will respect you view. But for myself, I don’t like him, and I probably never will like him again.
