    Summary

    "Stiles, I'll clear up your confusion about the position. Derek here needs someone to live with him. He's a difficult person to live with, so I won't sugarcoat that. But his responsibilities at the company right now make it impossible for him to actually take care of himself and his home. That would be your job," Laura explained.

    Both Stiles and Derek objected at the same time.

    Summary

    “Even before the pack joined together, Scott was trying to protect you. And he still is trying to protect you, even if it means leaving you out of all this.”

    Stiles does roll his eyes at that. “Yeah, but it didn’t work did it. I was still involved, and so was my Dad. We were nearly killed by Matt, and then Gerard.”

    “My point is, people change. Relationships aren’t always perfect. Scott's tried to kill me before."

    Stiles raises an eyebrow. "So, you’re saying that someone trying to kill you is just a small flaw in a relationship?"

    “We’re werewolves.” Derek answers with a shrug, as if that was a perfectly good explanation.

    Summary

    Derek Hale is a lucky guy. He's got a great family, good friends, and a fulfilling job as a tattoo artist.

    He's also one of the twenty-five per cent of the population born with a soul mark.

    He likes his life, but he's waiting for his soul-match. The odds of meeting them aren't great but hey, Derek's a lucky guy. He has faith.

    He can't believe how good his luck really is when one day his soul-match wanders right into his studio, all long limbs and copper eyes. There's just one problem: Stiles is there to get his soul mark covered up. Permanently.

    Summary

    “We’re not mates, Cora,” he insists. “I mean look at him-“

    “Ouch,” the kid says, no longer pushing that shit eating grin.

    “He’s- he’s,” Derek tries, at a loss of how to explain why this can’t be possible. Why it shouldn’t be possible.

     

    Or the one where Derek gets attacked by hunters, ends up with amnesia and forgets Stiles is his mate

    Summary

    Summary

    Stiles has been rejected so many times that it doesn't really surprise him when it happens again. Hurts, yeah, because dammit — he'd thought Derek was the one. Heartbreak sucks, and he's not so sure he's going to get over it this time.

    Summary




    “Beacon County Sheriff's Department, this is deputy Mahealani speaking.”

    “Oh thank god!”

    “Stiles?”

    “I, uh, I need some advice.”

    “Advice?”

    “Yeah. So, hypothetically, say you met your boyfriend’s mother and sister for the first time ever. Completely by accident. In the grocery store. And they convinced you to help them make a dinner to surprise aforementioned boyfriend when he got home after work. What would you do?”

    Danny paused, and then, “Stiles, you don’t have a boyfriend.”

    “That’s not the point! And I said hypothetically.”

    “Stiles...what are you doing right now?”

     

    ***

    Stiles never imagined he’d be in Derek’s kitchen cooking a surprise dinner with Derek’s family while they waited for Derek to get home from work.

    Partly because their visit was a complete surprise.

    But mostly because Stiles didn’t have a boyfriend.

    Or even know who Derek was.

    But he’d already come this far and Papa didn’t raise no quitter!

    Summary

    Be careful, little girl.

    Don’t go causing troubles in Beacon Hills, little girl, because the Hales live there.

    Keep away from Beacon Hills, little girl, or the Hales will destroy you.

     

    --
    Or:
    In a world where the Hales are alive and the protectors of the town of Beacon Hills, the humans politely fake ignorance of their not-really-human status, and they all live happily ever after.

    Then Kate comes in.

    Well.

    Tries to.

    Summary

    Scott liked to call it the Great Pack Divide of 2012.

    Derek liked to call Scott an idiot.

    (Or the one where Derek kidnaps Stiles to teach Scott a lesson, and ends up learning a few things himself)

    Summary

    "A lot of times the ‘markings’ were common, simple things you said to strangers all the time. 'Excuse me'; 'thank you'; 'hello'. Some got extremely romantic things like 'it’s you isn’t it? I’ve been waiting for you' or 'Wow you’re really pretty'. And they were always the first words their soulmate would ever say to them.

    Of course, having 'You are the fucking worst kind of person in the world' tattooed down your side, didn’t bode well. How fucked up was Stiles Stilinski that even his fucking Soulmate hated him? High School had been a special kind of hell when all the kids learned what his tattoo said—despite his best efforts to keep it a secret."

    Summary

    Excerpt:

    Big, serious brown eyes were staring right into his from only a few inches away. The child had clambered half over the arm of Derek’s chair to study him at close range, her little rosebud mouth pursed in concentration.

    “Uh.” Derek couldn’t look away as the girl reached out one pudgy hand and patted him gently on the cheek. Her scent was soft and sweet and somehow a bit familiar, just enough to keep Derek from shying away. Derek didn’t know too much about kids but he guessed this one was probably three years old or so, head still oversized in proportion to the short limbs and round little belly.

    She seemed fascinated with Derek’s beard, eyes widening further under incredibly thick lashes as she petted Derek’s cheek some more, smoothing down the short stubble. Finally she grinned widely. “Good wuff.”

    Derek jerked upright, hands clenching on the edge of his seat. Did she just say?...

    “CJ!” The child was suddenly gone, lifted up by a strong, tattooed forearm around her little potbelly. “You scared the he— heck out of me! What have I told you about wandering — Derek?”

    Summary

    The laws are clear: omegas are required to have an alpha guardian. So when the sheriff gets shot, Derek is roped in to stepping up as Stiles' temporary alpha while he recovers.

    Derek knew it was going to be a bad idea, but he never could have predicted all of the ways that Stiles would end up turning his life upside down.

    Summary

    Stiles is an unbonded spark, so he's been dealing with courting alphas since he was ten. It's gotten a lot worse since he turned sixteen. Some are assholes, some are nice, but Stiles hasn't wanted to spend the rest of his life bound to any of them.

    When Derek Hale shows up at his school, Stiles expects him to be just another asshole alpha attempting to buy him with expensive gifts. But Derek Hale puts no effort whatsoever into his courtship gifts. Stiles ought to be offended but instead he finds it refreshing.

    Summary

    “There are no absolutes, Scott! No hard rights or hard wrongs! The world doesn’t fucking work that way and we can’t afford to think like that, because people are going to die! We signed up for that the moment we got involved with all this!”

    “We? We?” Scott hisses. “Don’t you think you? Don’t forget that you’re the one who dragged us into that forest the night it all started, Stiles. So if it’s anyone’s fault, it’s yours.”

    Something inside Stiles cracks, so strong and so deep that he practically hears it.

    Summary

    Derek does his best to get out of the party, but despite his best efforts Erica somehow manages to convince him anyway. (The fact she mentions that Stiles Stilinski is going to be there, probably in tight jeans, is irrelevant.)

    Derek finds himself roped into a game of 'Truth or Dare' at a party and is dared to kiss Stiles.

    Summary

    Stiles is totally looking forward to living alone in his super cool apartment off-campus. He is. He is also very excited to bike to school every day, ready to set up an awesome game room, and definitely over his crush on Derek Hale. Completely over it.

    Or at least he is until Derek decides he's moving in with him. And then turns out to be the perfect roommate. And then starts attending all his classes. As a wolf.

    This is not going according to plan.

    Summary

    Derek knows what it feels like to not really have a choice, what it's like to be manipulated. He'd never take away someone's right to choose freely. The fear of even accidentally doing so is enough to hold him back from acting on his own feelings.

    Stiles has never had a problem making his own choices, and fuck anyone who would try to tell him he can't.

    (Or: Stiles gets bitten by a different alpha, but of course would prefer to have Derek as his alpha. And also just, you know, have Derek.)
