fic prompt: sterek childhood friends

devildoll:

Oh my God, anon, I am so sorry. I finished this weeks ago (months? I know it was well before my surgery) and forgot to post it. I hope you’re still in the fandom!

Little Dumplings

(Contains: Bullying. Physical altercations. Mention of panic attacks. Little kids being dicks to each other, as they do.)

Stiles loved school, okay? Jackson insisted it wasn’t real school, but Stiles knew better. School was where you went during the day while your parents were at work, and teachers gave you things to do, and you learned stuff, and you made pictures to hang on the refrigerator at home. Stiles definitely went to school.

Jackson was probably just being annoying on purpose anyway, because it was called Little Dumplings Pre-School. It was right there in the name.

And Stiles looked forward to going there every day, because there was always lots of fun stuff to do, and a playground with a swingset and a sandbox, and Miss Blake didn’t get mad at him when he got the fidgets. And he got to spend all day with Scott.

Scott was Stiles’ best friend at school, and also his best friend outside of school, because their parents were friends, too. Scott and Stiles had sleepovers and everything, even though they were only four years old. No one else in their class had had a sleepover yet. Stiles liked to brag about it.

Even if they weren’t mature enough for sleepovers yet, everyone else in class had a best friend, too. Jackson had Danny, Lydia had Allison. Boyd and Erica and Isaac were all best friends together, which was unconventional, but who was Stiles to judge.

They spent their days playing games Miss Blake taught them, and taking naps on their squishy mats, and learning how to write their names and how to count things. Sometimes they argued over toys until Miss Blake reminded them they had to share, and sometimes someone (Jackson) cried over who got a bigger cookie at snack time, but for the most part, they all got along. It was very peaceful and fun.

Until Derek Hale showed up.

Commander Vimes didn’t like the phrase ‘The innocent have nothing to fear’, believing the innocent had everything to fear, mostly from the guilty but in the longer term even more from those who say things like ‘The innocent have nothing to fear’.

Shut the fuck up about vaccinations. Not everyone has to have them, not everyone believes in them. Uneducated fuck.

You know, my homie and secret best friend Neil deGrasse Tyson said it best….

This isn’t an issue of belief or should even be up for discussion. It’s not a debate- like gravity or that the Earth revolves around the Sun isn’t up for debate. It’s a fact, whether or not you like it. Sorry bro.

And any ‘educated fuck’ knows that vaccines are necessary and everyone who can have them should have them.

Have a lovely day, sugar. 

Actually there’s a lot of research and knowledge supporting the fact that vaccines are NOT necessary. It is simply another thing that today’s health system is super big on, just like hospital births and c-sections. And a lot of people actually have long term and short term complications from getting vaccines. Ahem.

Dang guys, you thought I didn’t check my activity log every now and then? Because I knew shit like this would pop up. And, I just finished my block exam and am feeling fiesty.

Actually you’re wrong. That ‘research’ is either completely fabricated OR grossly misinterprets the data OR uses shitty research techniques to get the data they want- all which are grossly unethical, in case you’re curious. I’ve got slides from a recent lecture on vaccines (aka why I am so fired up about this nonsense). You can check out the citations on each slide if you don’t believe me… something unsurprisingly missing from literally every anti-vaccine comment I’ve gotten and website that I have visited. Show me your sources, honey, and if you do, I will blow them out of the water because not a single one stands up to current scientific research standards.

There are however tomes and tomes of research for the safety end efficacy of vaccines. Don’t believe me? Look at a simple google scholar search.

So! Here we go!

Holy shit, it’s almost like vaccines SAVE SOCIETY MONEY. In fact, they give money back to society, along with the other programs indicated by red arrows. Which would be really weird for something that is just a healthcare fad like c-sections and hospital births.

And most people have no complications for getting vaccines, and if they do, most of them are short term. In fact, it is devilishly hard to prove an adverse effect was because of a vaccine. Why? Because it’s how we’re wired. We falsely see connections and causes where there are none (called a type 1 error; you are rejecting a true null hypothesis). People are more likely to attribute an adverse health event to a shot- even if that shot is the placebo and the numbers are just the background rate for whatever health event in the population.

And here is a graph showing the sample sizes necessary to prove that an adverse event is caused or related to a vaccine.

You know what, it was a really good lecture and I’m going to share more more relevant slides in case any one else feels like contradicting me.

These slides show the public health impact of vaccines. Note the differences between the historical peak and post-vaccine era deaths columns. Because saving literally thousands of lives is totally a conspiracy you should beware of.

And this is why herd immunity is so important! See how high it has to be for measles? Guess what we’re seeing outbreaks of thanks to anti-vaxxers? Don’t forget that one of the deadly complications of measles is SSPE.

Look how Hepatitis A infections in older adults when down after kids started getting immunized. Shocking! Could vaccines be… good for …. everyone????

Ahem.

I’m sorry, Beacon Hills has 30,000 people? How big is the town? The other towns near me have 30,000 people in them. But they’re only a little bigger than mine. So unless Beacon Hills is large and spread out, having a Sheriff rather than a chief of police makes no sense. Though that population does make  the random areas and the hospital make more sense.

there’s the other high school heather and danielle go to within beacon hills. like idk anymore about beacon hills. especially when they have like so many abandoned buildings and an abandoned subway system

I’m not sure it’s that unusual. In the county where I grew up, we had two incorporated cities with a population of 30k each and each city had its own police department; there was a Sheriff for the rest of the county. (My town had a population of 3,900 spread over 25 sq miles, so we had one guy named Buddy Ray with a shotgun.)

Then came budget cuts and a really wily Sheriff (we elected him for 25 years—when I left home, they were still electing him) who convinced the local Board of County Commissioners that he could serve and protect errybody (county population of 140k) if he was the only law in town. So they disbanded the two city police departments and they were absorbed by the sheriff’s department. We weren’t the only county with similar demographics to consolidate our law enforcement like that.

Where I live now, the county population is about 360k and we still only have two incorporated cities (40k & 60k). They each have their own police department—for now, though we’ve had rumblings in recent years of absorbing them into the sheriff’s department—and we have a county Sheriff for everything else. Local governments be weird.

Then again, why am I trying to make Teen Wolf make sense. It’s like I’ve learned nothing. Someone smack me on the mouth and tell me they’re disappointed in my choices.

I will never understand county law enforcement. Why can’t you just have municipal police departments and state troopers like we do in the northeast? Seems like a much easier system when it comes to jurisdiction. 

I think it has to do with land. Like, there is SO MUCH land and the population is so spread out that municipal police didn’t want to be responsible for policing out in the boonies. (Seriously, where I live now, it would take the nearest city police department an actual 45 minute drive at 55 mph to reach half of the little population clusters.) We have a lot of towns-that-are-not-towns, so they don’t qualify to have their own police because they aren’t officially incorporated.

I should mention that I live in Florida, which is probably the weirdest state on the whole frickin’ planet. It’s a hodge-podge of laws that are so convoluted it will give you a headache. It’s like the Weasley residence of state and local laws, just built one on top of another with no planning or forethought. Instead of freckled redheads with big hearts, we’ve got alligators and racist old people. I feel so cheated!

Heh, of course, we have state troopers, too. They fall under the Department of Safety and Motor Vehicles. Which is a separate department from the FDLE (Florida Department of Law Enforcement) officers who are special state cops with field offices and stuff. And THEN there are FWC (Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission) officers who have statewide jurisdiction, too. They arrest manatees.

It’s very difficult to get any work done in Florida.
