Welcome to the Stiles Campaign!
What is the Stiles Campaign? Simply put, it’s an effort on my part to make visible Teen Wolf fans who are bisexual, and want to see bisexual representation on Teen Wolf.
I’ve seen so many posts going around by amazing fans, amazing writers, talking about their own experiences and their past, and how much it would mean for them to see a bisexual main character on the show.
There’s got to be a way to band together, and make ourselves heard - make ourselves VISIBLE.
What do I think will come of this?
Maybe nothing. Maybe everything. Jeff Davis himself has insinuated that he was leaving Stiles’ sexuality open and perhaps hinting at his bisexuality intentionally. Do I think this project will result in him coming out in the show? Well, no. But hopefully it’ll at least communicate to Jeff and others on the production team how important it is to us to have that representation.
What can you do to help?
Tell your story. Make art. Write letters. Spread the word.
I’m going to be opening up the submit box so that folks can tell their stories. If you want to tell your story anonymously, you can email it to me at email@example.com, or send me an ask with how to get in touch with you.
Once stories start coming in - reblog them. Like them. Comment on them. Get them out there and seen. We know we’re here. Now let’s let other people know as well.
So you’re a shipper…
Welcome! Fantastic! I am, too. However, please don’t make this a part of your submission. Jeff and TPTB are well aware of fandom’s zeal in the shipping department. For me, my concerns about the way bisexuality is represented and handled on the show go far beyond who I want to see get together (or not). Part of this project is making it clear that our desire for representation isn’t based solely upon the characters we ship. So please, leave your shipping to the gifsets and fanfic (and then send me a link!).
Will Jeff Davis ever see these?
Who knows. I hope so. I’m working on contact information for getting a package together to send him when I’ve got enough stories to put together, but I can’t promise it’ll get there to the office, let alone put in front of his face. However, the more people we get involved, the more stories that are told, and the more people reblog and talk about it, the more likely it is to catch the eye of the Teen Wolf production and social media teams.
So let’s get to it!
