America’s Next Top Model.
he really enjoys the unnecessary drama over someone getting their hair cut, and Tyra sometimes says these super profound things about how “everyone has flaws, it’s accepting them and embracing them that makes them beautiful” and shit like that, you know, it gives him hope someone will one day find his flaws beautiful.
and then, you know, he hates himself a little, but he can’t stop watching.
OR, something like Community, or Parks and Rec, because it’s so delightful and hilarious, but, he can’t be seen to be LAUGHING. and obviously one time, Stiles totally walked in on him crying with laughter at Andy’s antics and pretended to be having a heart attack over it. which Derek had to scowl over, but couldn’t quite get the frown down when he’s still laughing about Parks. just IMAGINE him trying to glare whilst his mouth is twitching and then he cracks up again and Stiles takes a picture before he can be stopped. saves it forever.
i think he would greatly appreciate Captain Holt. the dry wit, the steadfast nature, the easy way he leads, the authority, the gentle secret affectionate way he treats his team, definitely things Derek looks for in a ~mentor.
apply liberally each day
no. the tv show game of thrones would not be derek’s sort of thing. it’s mindlessly violent, everyone betrays everyone, people die and there’s super amounts of rape and non con?
i think he’d like blue bloods. nice family values, broships everywhere, people having each other’s back, tom selleck with his glorious steadfast leadership and moustache. stiles would like it, too because yay team blue!
they’d watch it every friday, veto invitations to go out, and then have super dirty sex to make up for the ~grown up, mature tv they’d been watching.
