One of the things I love about Scott is how casually smart he is.How he overthinks things, and is cautious when getting into a situation, instead of recklessly jumping into danger.
Scott: Just out of curiosity, which half of the body are we looking for?
Stiles: Huh! I didn't even think about that.
Scott: And, uh, what if whoever killed the body is still out here?
Stiles: Also something I didn't think about.
Scott: It's - comforting to know you've planned this out with your usual attention to detail.
How he pulls back his friends and tries to keep them from doing stupid shit, how he stops them from endangering themselves.
Derek: The moon's rising, Scott. What is it?
Scott: Risk and reward. Derek: Which means what?
Scott: We're not measuring the risk with enough information. We don't know enough.
Derek: We know time's running out.
Scott: Yeah, but think about it. They put the triskele on your door four months ago. What have they been doing all this time? Why wait until now? Derek: We don't have the time to figure out every little detail. Scott: Okay, but what if this detail, the reason why they waited... what if it's the most important one?
I love how much it pisses Peter off, that Scott keeps outsmarting him.
Peter: I know you're there, Scott, and I'm impressed. It's too bad most teenagers aren't that smart. It's like that one on the lacrosse team - Jackson. Thinks he knows all about us. You know how they say knowledge is power. Not in his case.
And yet, like it or not, he still has to admit admiring Scott for it
Peter: "Scott, I admit that you have a flair for beating the odds."
How Gerard is stunned when Scott outplans him again and again.
Sure, Scott can be a bit goofy at times, but there’s just so much wisdom in what he says and does, and it’s why by s3, Derek openly admires him.
Derek: Scott's always been about one thing. Saving his friends. He will do anything and everything to save the people
he cares about. When there's no chance of winning, he keeps fighting. When all hope is lost, he finds another way. And when he's beaten down,
he stands up again. You want to earn a place in his pack? You want redemption? Find another way to stand and fight.
Why Isaac comes to him for advice, Why most of Scott’s pack chose him as their alpha.
Deucalion: What he(Gerard) fears most...
He can't beat you.
And he knows it.
Lydia might be the genius, and Stiles might be booksmart, but Scott has a level of understanding and intuition of his own, and that’s just awesome.
As you might notice my number one fandom at the moment is Teen Wolf, and in particualr, Scott McCall. It's just so rare to find characters who are centered around kindness, gentleness, patience. Characters who don't seek out danger for the sake of glory or 'fun', but solely because others might need them. Characters who get over their own pain to help others, and be there for the people around them even at their own expense.
I just love Scott, and there are way too few fics imho that focus on Scott's feelings, Scott's pain, and Scott's traumas.
For Supernatural my fave character is Dean Winchester by far, and I just love him for trying to be better, putting others before himself, and for all the emotional stuff he tries to hide behind a wall of false bravado. I have a thing for abo in this fandom, because it's a short cut to let Dean be more vulnerable than he'd admit himself to be in the regular universe.
As for Lucifer, while I don't mind ship fic, I'm actually far more interested in the family and friendship bonds on this show. Especially the bond between Lucifer and his older brother Amenadiel.
I love gen fics, fics based around family, found and blood alike, and how friends and family interacts with one another. I love characters sacrificing themselves for others and desperately trying to make things better for those around them, and getting hurt because of it.
My three fandoms are Teen Wolf, Supernatural and Superantural RPF
My fave characters in those fandoms are Scott Mccall, Dean Winchester and Jensen Ackles. And as I'm very character centric, I tend to ship all those three characters with just about anyone.
(so if you want to take the prompt for one pairing and adapt it for another of my pairings, then I'd be perfectly fine with that. Long as you don't turn either of those three into the bad guy, and keep them as the emotional center of the story.
For Teen Wolf, I see Scott as a switch, who will sub or dom depending on what his partner needs him to be. I love werewolves as pets stories, and Allison as a dom. I'm a fan of slave fics in general, I love scisaac , scallisaac, and sciles, but in all three I would love a focus on Scott's traumas and how he overcomes it.
And my biggest dislikes are character bashing in general, and kink wise, watersports, scat and necrophilia.
For Superantural, and spn rpf, I have a love for abo fics and anything involving consent issues, and the problems that come with that both in an abo society, or in situations where Dean is not in control. I prefer it if Jensen or Dean are not written as if they're weak.
A character can be vulnerable, while still being strong, and I like the contrast between the two for any of my faves.

It’s funny how often Peter fans like to act as if Peter’s extraordinarily intelligent, when it was Peter’s stupidity that lost him everything in Season 1.
I mean part of what cost him everything was his cruelty and utter lack of concern for the pack he was building. Even a ‘ruthless con man’ like Peter should have known better than to rely entirely on mind control and terror to get a newly bitten beta on his side.
If Peter had actually used his supposed intelligence and greater understanding of human nature, then he would have learned about his beta and used that to get him on his side.
See, the entire reason why Scott was one of the only characters Peter was never been able to manipulate, was because Peter made crucial mistakes in the first few episodes of Season 1.
He was smart enough to trick his nurse into helping him and teach her about werewolves. He was clearheaded enough to lure his niece to Beacon Hills, ambush and murder her. And he was clever enough to stay ahead of the Argents.
Yet when it came to Scott, instead of trying to approach him in a thoughtful manner, he assaulted him, abandoned him, stalked him, terrorized him, and mind-raped him. But when these tactics just made Scott more stubborn, he didn’t change his tactics. He just kept pushing.
If Peter had instead gone up to Scott after he Bit him. If he’d pretended to be sorry, acted as if he was remorseful, played up his injuries from what the Argents did to him and played the role of the victim, then he might have actually gotten a loyal beta out of Scott. Scott’s compassion is also *his defining trait.*
Scott also has a habit of looking up to father figures, it’s why he was so close to Deaton, to the sheriff, to Chris… even Deucalion later on. Peter could have played up the fatherly connection between Alpha and Beta. Scott probably would have forgiven him. After all he forgave Derek easily enough for most of the terrible things Derek pulled in Seasons 1 and 2.
But Peter did none of those things.
The more I think about it, the clearer it becomes how lucky Beacon Hills was that Season-1 Peter was blinded by his rage, his impatience, and his arrogance.
