I should warn you that character breakdown is not my strong point. I just wanted to try my hand at it. @w@
- How I feel about this character
Okay, probably a relatively unpopular opinion, given that I’m a huge Sterek shipper, but I like Erica. I think she’s one of my favorite fem characters in the show. She’s not really a chick you can actually predict the actions and feelings of - much like you can with Allison and Lydia. The fact that she’s so enigmatic endears me, makes me want to see more of her and really see how she thinks and feels.
- All the people I ship romantically with this character
I know a lot of people ship her with Isaac, but I’d really like to see how she’d work with Boyd, ok. The few times they’ve been together, I can see that they could probably make a pretty epic duo if given the chance.
- My non-romantic OTP for this character
I like the way she works with Derek. I think she admires him and hero-worships him to a point where she thinks she likes him/is falling in love with him, but it really isn’t like that. She’s caught between this peer/mentor relationship with him, and I think over time, after she starts to grow more independent, she will be strong enough to challenge him as an equal. Like a sister.
- My unpopular opinion about this character
I think that Erica is a wolf in sheep’s clothing - excuse the pun. She can be manipulative to get what she wants, and she’s not going to be nice about it if that means she can get her way. She’s the kind of girl who could possibly take things to an extreme if she needs to. She would be the first one I think Derek would rely on to kill someone if the time came. I think there’s something ruthless in her that we may see in the future.
- One thing I wish would happen / had happened with this character in canon.
I honestly didn’t care for the Erica/Stiles scenes. IF DONE RIGHT, I may have, but I feel like it completely came out of nowhere. It blindsided me, in a way that there was absolutely no segue into this supposed crush. Personally, I’d like to see her actually have a badass moment. I’m tired of seeing the betas constantly losing. They’re werewolves, for fuck’s sake! Let them be at least a little kickass, okay?
