I think I had something cleverer here initially, but let's be real: this is Tumblr. It's full of cute animal pictures and shouty gifsets and fandom flailing. Sometimes I write fic and sometimes I cosplay but mostly the flailing. Who can say? I'M UNPREDICTABLE.

In the interest of putting off the excruciatingly painful thing I might be writing as an actual sequel to the Fucking Teen Wolf Story, I started writing what I intended to be a fluffy little bits-and-pieces adorable-BB-Derek-and-Stiles memory collection and suddenly found myself researching conservation biology.
