Let us look past, for a moment, the problematic idea that Allison needs to be redeemed while Stiles and Derek don’t.
Because - the truth of the matter is that Allison hasn’t really done anything wrong. She was abused by her family and thrown into a war she hardly understands. She was told she was going to be a leader, but in the end, she was just a pawn by her grandfather. Her own mother’s suicide was used against her.
Allison’s actions need to be evaluated in this context. She was a damaged kid doing the best she could with what she had to work with.
Meanwhile her abusive father. Have we had any tweets about how he should have a redemption story line? I’m guessing no.
Because it’s so much more important to put the responsibility on the victim.
She does owe some apologies. Boyd, Erica, and Isaac—she owes them apologies, absolutely. But they’re the only people she needs forgiveness from and that’s because she shot them multiple times/stabbed them in the kidneys. Which. Scott and Stiles haven’t done. But.
The only thing that “vilified” Allison was the fucking fans. Darling girl doesn’t need a fucking redemption arc.
God. Seriously, Jeff Davis?
(But you know what? Even if it’s damn unnecessary, I’ll take it, because yay, Allison screen time.)
I don’t think Scott’s talked to Allison either. But that might be more her choice, you know. Her mom dying hit her pretty hard.
#i think people forget that allison is only seventeen#she is seventeen years old and within the span of a few months she’s lost her aunt (who was like her sister) and then her mom #two people who meant the world to her #and i think people assume because she /wants/ to be strong that she is#everyone has their breaking point #and this was allisons #so when gerard offered her a way to get back at the people who took her mom from her she was right in her actions to do so #she was acting out of grief and a handful of emotions that had been building up since before kate even died #she is seveteen and has already been through too much #basically allison argent does not deserve your bullshit hate(via laurahalee)
#six shades of underappreciated badass #she just does constantly awesome shit that’s mostly overlooked #holding a condom up to her aunt and father so they wouldn’t be rude to scott #calming herself down after seeing a goddamn werewolf (which was one of the best moments in the entire show) #standing her ground against a lizard monster that she’s never seen before #USING THE KANIMA VENOM TO DEFEAT A WEREWOLF WHO WAS TRYING TO KILL HER BEST FRIEND #knocking her stalker to the goddamn ground after he tried to grab her #and surviving an abusive home environment despite being cut off from her only real source of emotional support #allison fucking argent #you are incredible

“Can’t I be strong and go to prom?”
You just need a reason.
