Okay, so because of this post I’m imagining Scott sitting down and making up a McCall Pack weekly newsletter that he emails to everybody with the MSWord template and writing little pack updates like “Derek thinks it would be a good idea if we participated in the canned food drive down at the library, and I agree, so if you can (no pun intended lol) drop by and donate some food for a worthy cause!” And “When you see Lydia, congratulate her on her perfect SAT scores! We’re gonna take her bowling on Friday, so everybody bring your A-game!” And there’s adorable clip art and birthday reminders and recipes and a joke corner, and Stiles eventually just emails Scott and says, “Dude, I know you like doing this, but can you lay off the Comic Sans? It’s making my eyes bleed.”
So, for the “Remember When…?” section of the newsletter for the next week, Scott types up a 500 word essay in Papyrus font about the time Stiles threw up an entire box of fruit roll-ups in the second grade, thus losing a deck of Pokemon cards to Scott, who just gave them back because he felt sorry for Stiles. And Stiles emails him back with “LOL.”
Mostly, though, Scott just wants everyone to feel included. He doesn’t want anybody wondering if they matter to him and the rest of the group. That’s why he ends every newsletter with, “Stay safe, you guys.” It sounds cheesy, but it’s less weird than the “I love you all” he keeps wanting to add.
I think we’ve officially reached that annoying time in the year where it’s sweater weather in the morning, but by midday, if you wear a sweater, you die from heatstroke.
