Take it back now y’all
Cha cha real smooth
Right foot lets stomp, left foot lets stomp
Everybody clap your hands
How low can you go? Can you go down low?
All the way to the floor?

Can you bring it to the top?
Like you never never stopped
I’m LunaObsessive, and these are surveys for non-Sterek ships. I did the Sterek survey yesterday, the results of which can be found here, and as that was so successful I wanted to try with other ships.
I got 1000 responses for the Sterek survey in a very short space of…
wondering though if this also includes if your otp as like one true friendship forever pairing?

Jeff Davis has done absolutely fucking nothing to indicate that he cares about the best interests of any of his actors (barring Ian Bohen, JR Bourne, and Colton Haynes, and to a lesser but not insignificant extent Max and Charlie Carver), and this is especially true of how he treats Tyler Posey.
He (a white man) literally told Tyler (a biracial Latino boy) that he “owns [Tyler’s] body” in response to Tyler getting the armband tattoo when it was easily covered up AND later easily integrated into the tattoo.
He didn’t tell Jill Wagner that Kate was going to die; she didn’t find out this was going to happen until they started shooting Code Breaker and his stance on that has been, “well she should’ve known that it was going to happen like seriously villains never get to live” (except for Gerard… and Deucalion… and the Blunder Twins… and Peter gets a special mention since he got to come back).
This treatment of the ladies is apparently a pronounced enough thing on Jeff’s part that Melissa Ponzio took the part she took on The Walking Dead because she thought that Blobfish showing up at the end of 3a meant that Melissa McCall was as good as dead and that Jeff would just totally fail to tell her that it was happening until the last possible second.
Jeff doesn’t even treat his precious duck-lipped golden boy cash cow that well when you really look at it closely. Knowing full well that Dylan O’Brien’s literal worst fear in the world is drowning, that this is a thing he actually has a phobia related to, Jeff first made Dylan do the scene in Battlefield where he talks to Marin about the physical experience of drowning and THEN made Dylan go through with the trio ritual sacrifice shit where Stiles had to get held underwater until he died.
The way that Jeff talks about Dylan and Hulk Tyler is legitimately super fucking creepy: ever since he became aware of Sterek and its popularity in the fandom, they’ve kind of ceased being people to him. Like, Dylan gets it a little bit better since he’s allowed to have actual input on Stiles’s plots and character arcs, but Jeff talks about both of them like they’re fucking commodities and he talks about Posey like he’s a fucking show dog.
Yes, Jeff’s been “teasing” Posey about his weight since season one AND THAT’S FUCKING UNACCEPTABLE BEHAVIOR. It doesn’t matter if Jeff thinks he’s just “having fun” with Tyler; YOU DON’T DO THAT TO PEOPLE. YOU JUST DON’T. DON’T “TEASE” PEOPLE ABOUT THEIR APPEARANCE, DON’T “TEASE” PEOPLE ABOUT THEIR WEIGHT, DON’T “MAKE FUN” OF PEOPLE FOR “GOING SOFT” BECAUSE THAT SHIT’S NOT FUCKING FUNNY. AND IT’S FUCKING GROSS AND UNPROFESSIONAL FOR JEFF TO PULL THAT SHIT ON THE CAST MEMBERS BECAUSE HE IS THEIR BOSS AND THERE IS BASICALLY NOTHING THAT THEY CAN DO ABOUT IT.
Like?? This is a flagrant abuse of power on Jeff’s part: he knows that he is their boss and that there’s nothing they can do to stop him from doing anything they don’t like because he has the power to just fire them, and depending on the professional connections he has, possibly give them Hell about finding other jobs in Hollywood by putting word out on the professional grapevine that they’re unreasonable or unprofessional or impossible to work with or literally anything he wanted.
And you cannot seriously tell me that this is all “harmless” or Jeff having the cast’s best interests at heart when he goes out of his way to lie to people about this shit and deny culpability.
Or when it’s pretty visibly having an effect on people: have you heard Dylan talk about the trio sacrifice ice bath scene in interviews? Because it’s fucking heartbreaking. And as for Posey and the shit Jeff says about his body? Tyler tries to brush it off like it’s all a joke but there’s been more than one interview or red carpet moment where he’s made disparaging comments about every little thing from his body to his acting to his position on the show, all things that Jeff picks on him about and he comes off as pretty legitimately self-effacing about everything. Like, not, “oh ha ha, does my butt look big in these jeans” but honest to god insecure about this shit.
And this isn’t even getting into things like how he tried to play Peter and Lydia’s confrontation in Alpha Pact for shits and giggles, how the only other time Lydia’s experiences in season two came up again was when Derek knowingly and consciously victim blamed her for what Peter put her through, how he just didn’t bother to tell Haley Webb that Jennifer was the Darach until they were shooting The Girl Who Knew Too Much, how he pulled the “Lydia is a banshee now” shit out on Holland in a similar manner (except for even worse because Holland had put three years of work into Lydia at that point while Haley had had a few months with Jennifer) and without even bothering to research what the fuck a banshee is first…
or how he’s been consistently shifting the narrative empathy off of Scott and onto Stiles, how he literally only remembers that Isaac survived several years of horrifying abuse when he wants to exploit this for drama, how his attitude with regard to the issue of whether or not Derek was an underage teenager when Kate seduced him and murdered his family has been, “lol who cares though why is it so important lol I mean like really it’s not like Kate sexually taking advantage of an underage teenager makes the situation that much more fucked up lololol you guys are so silly with your ridiculous minutiae,”
or how he didn’t do shit about shit about acknowledging that Scott and Melissa are POC in the text until Galvanize but still grubbed for representation cookies because Tyler Posey is Latino and look look hey everybody look Jeff cast a biracial Latino kid as his main character give him all the cookies isn’t he great, how he seriously implied that Scott’s suicide attempt in Motel California was legitimate and NOT just the Wolfsbane talking and then never dealt with this or brought it up again…
TL;DR point being: no, actually, according to all of the available evidence here, Jeff Davis does NOT care about the best interests of the cast members. Jeff Davis barely, BARELY cares about the best interests of the show itself and all of the evidence here suggests that he thinks of all his actors as fucking commodities, literally as his fucking possessions. so, repeat after me: JEFF DAVIS IS NOT A GIFT.
Holy shit… Thank you so much for this, I didn’t realize half this stuff.
