Pride Month: Day #8: Artwork: Derek and Stiles (Teen Wolf)

I know Derek Hale and Stiles Stilinski from Teen Wolf are not officially a couple but I can't help wondering why they were not. Their character development from season 1 to season 3 (which I'm currently up to in my binge watch) gradually changed where they went from grudgingly working together to develop into something surprisingly trusting.

I might be new to the Teen Wolf fandom but I can see why fans have shipped these two together. They have an easy chemistry that could eventually develop into something more. I would consider their relationship to fall in the slow burn trope category.

With the show already in it's 6th and finale season and Derek (Tyler Hoechlin) left in the 4th season, it will be truly surprising if at the end these two somehow become canon. I highly doubt it but who knows maybe Derek will return for a cameo and it will be a surprise scene like the end of Dawson's Creek where Joey Potter ended up with Pacey Witter. That truly was a surprise because everyone thought Joey and Dawson Leery were going to be together at the end.

Anyway, whether or not Derek and Stiles eventually become canon they are a favorite couple to a lot of fans.

There relationship may not have been canon but it was in so many way. And after Derek left, Stiles was never the same.

Thank you for leaving a comment, I'm not at the episodes where Derek has left yet, I'm still midway through season 3. I will have to see how his departure affected Stiles.
