I’ve been so annoyed by most reader fics that have the reader as Scott’s sister, that I’ve finally cracked and decided to write my own McCall sibling!Reader fic.
This one will actually focus on the Reader being Scott’s sibling, on the relationship between the two of them, and how I can keep the dynamics of the show, and still have this new character there.
Not sure if I’ll pair said reader with anyone though, other ships are of minor importance to me, compared to the sibling relationship, and the struggle between reader and Stiles in that both of them see Scott as theirs, even when reader is resenting Scott for their father leaving. (yep, going with complex instead of one dimensional tropes)
Reader will get worried over Scott when he starts sleepwalking in s1, be pissed at Derek for how he treats Scott, because no one gets to be an ass to Scott but her. And when she eventually finds out what’s going on with Scott, it won’t be brushed aside and treated as if it doesn’t matter.
So yeah, think anyone’d even be interested in reading it? doubt it but ah well, it’s what I need to write after reading yet another McCall sibling reader fic that annoyed me with how ooc it had Scott, and how little focus it put on the sibling relationship.

Summary: Jensen's life is idyllic, at least that is until he is abducted by a mysterious stranger and taken into a cabin in the woods. Jared sees Jensen as the key to getting what he needs: a better life for himself and revenge against someone who deserves it. But the more he begins to understand about the man he abducted, the less confident he feels in what felt like the perfect plan. At first Jensen wants nothing more than to escape and get his life back on track, but in time he begins to question what it is he really wants. As time passes and secrets are revealed, both men begin to learn more about themselves and each other, and must decide what they really want.
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.
