I’m having a moment, just thinking about how Scott NOTICED. God, he noticed. ;_; STILES JUST OPEN UP AND TELL YOUR BFF. HE WANTS TO BE THERE FOR YOU.
This just goes back to my headcanon about how Stiles doesn’t like to tell Scott when something is wrong with him because he’s scared of being a burden, as Scott seeing him as an obligation. And of course, Scott never would, and Scott probably also gets that about Stiles, but he still asks. UGH BOYS I LOVE YOU TWO SO MUCH.
That is most definitely my headcanon for Stiles—that he’s determined, on some level, that his value lies mainly in his ability to be useful, and that he shouldn’t bother people with his own problems (the serious ones, anyway). Because who would want him around if he ever let his issues take precedence?
It’s probably not anything that Scott has ever put into words, or possibly even coherent thought. But he knows it about Stiles—knows that Stiles won’t just say that something is wrong, that he has to be asked, and probably pushed a little to talk about it. Which Scott will do, because Stiles is his best friend, and he just wants him to be happy, and SERIOUSLY THESE TWO ARE MY FOREVER BROTP. ;_;
