I've been rewatching Teen Wolf
S1, which has been good, because I pretty much watched it in a week and absorbed a lot, but don't entirely remember where I absorbed it from; the show or the fic. This is probably the first time I've actually found myself conflating canon and fanon. I have been inspired anew with plot ideas.
In rewatching, I paid more attention to Chris Argent, and thought about him recounting how he'd had to shoot his best friend in the head. I had this idea that Gerard was nefariously involved; that a different type of wolfsbane was used to make Chris' friend lose control --- because Chris and his friend were maybe more than friends (I can't decide if it's like brothers or lovers, but anyway, close
), and Gerard Argent couldn't have a stinking wolf in the family. Back then he wasn't dying of cancer. I had this thought that in the modern day Chris could find letters and receipts among Gerard's possessions, evidence of his misdeeds. And in doing so, he would maybe decide to ask for Peter Hale's assistance in ressurrection. There are myths and legends that it's possible. He couldn't save Victoria, can't bring her back, he's tried
, but his friend? He may have a shot. I imagined the story as being told in flashbacks and short, sharp modern scenes. Reason(s) for not having written:
Lack of time.
