    Summary

    The roommate part seems like the best idea of them all, at least for the first day or so of knowing him, before Stiles shows up.

    Scott McCall is nineteen, athletic and cheerful with a surfer-bro kind of vibe. There’s something about his face, his goofy puppy grin and floppy hair and warm brown eyes, that reads as inherently wholesome. Derek likes that a lot. He likes the way Scott introduces himself with an easy, “Hey, man, nice to meet you,” and he likes the gentle yet firm way he shakes Derek’s hand. He’s the opposite of everyone Derek associated with in New York. He’s the kind of person Derek needs right now in his life. He’s going to be the perfect roommate.

    And then there’s Stiles Stilinski.

    Summary

    Canon diverges at the end of S03 E07, "Digestivo"

    After Will's rejection, Hannibal nearly gives himself up to the FBI. Fortunately, Chiyoh talks him out of it. Aspects of the idea had merit, and he's confident there are other ways to bring Will the rest of the way out of his chrysalis.

    *

    Will is living by rote in the empty shell of his old life. A visit from Hannibal, a final farewell, doesn't give him the closure he hopes for, and when the Ripper starts killing anew in Arizona, Will can't refuse the call.

    - - -

    Alternating POV, but mainly Will.

    I'll update tags as I go along.

    Summary

    "Are you going for the course?" Lovegood asked. "You have the NEWTs.”

    “What course?” Draco said, then, “No, don’t be ridiculous,” when he realized she meant the notice pinned up on the board he’d been staring at: Applicants To The Introductory Mediwizard Course For The Coming Term Shall Present Themselves In The Chief Mediwizard’s Office By August 24th.

    “Oh, I thought you might,” she said. “Well, goodbye.” And off she wandered again in her addled way.

    Summary

    Derek loves his kids. He does. But… every once in a while he needs a break from them. It’s natural. It’s totally fine. He needs some “me” time occasionally. It’s allowed, okay?

    At least this is what he keeps telling himself when he drops the kids and their overnight bags off at his older sister Laura’s house.

    Summary

    Parrish is holding the infant like a fullback carrying the football, tight and close to his body, as if he’s afraid someone’s going to strip it away from him at any moment.

    “Sir,” he whispers, “this baby is running hot.”

    “So call the paramedics, get Sally on the line. For heaven’s sake, Parrish, this baby needs a hospital, not the sheriff” The baby is hot to the touch but his pale eyes, when they blink open, are clear and he’s not flushed like a feverish infant would be.

    “No,” Parrish hisses, “I mean this baby is running hot. I don’t think he’s human.”

    John looks at the priest, still standing in the aisle, hunched in concern. He looks at the baby in his duck onesie and little yellow hat.

    “Oh, fuck,” he says.
