    Summary

    “You did a favour for a stranger?” the sheriff asked, surprised. “You won’t even do a favour for me.”

    “Your favours involve chocolate and salty snacks, damn straight I won’t do you any favours,” Stiles insisted, pointing an accusatory finger at his dad while leaning back against the counter, taking another large sip of coffee. “Some guy lost his phone and was calling it hoping someone would answer. That someone was me. He said he’d had some drinks and couldn’t come grab it right then, so we agreed to meet at the station this morning. I didn’t realize ‘this morning’ meant the ass crack of dawn.”

    “It’s not the ass crack of dawn, that was at five thirty-seven, according to the weather app on my phone.”

    Stiles let out a sarcastic laugh and flipped his dad off. The sheriff gave him a look, but he didn’t reprimand him, clearly able to tell Stiles was miserable.

    Summary

    Stiles held both hands out. “She loves it here!”

    “Probably because we treat her right,” Boyd insisted, giving him a look.

    “Again, not my fault,” Stiles argued. “But I will let you berate me to your heart’s content as long as you help fix her so she doesn’t leave me stranded in the boonies.”

    “This whole fucking town is the God damn boonies,” Derek said angrily. Stiles wondered if he had any other settings.

    So far he’d learned confusion and anger. He hoped there was a happy setting in there somewhere.

    Boyd’s gaze cut briefly to Derek, then back to Stiles. “I see you’ve met Derek.”

    “Oh yeah. We are now very close friends,” Stiles said, turning to grin at the Alpha.

    He didn’t look impressed. Also like he was trying to figure out which parts of Stiles were the squishiest and easiest to eat through. That was concerning, he didn’t like that.

    Summary

    He’s tall, as tall as Derek is, but where Derek’s shoulders are wide, this man is lean strength. Stiles rests his cittern against the corner, gives a jaunty wave to the room, and begins walking in Derek’s direction.

    Derek stops looking and buries his face in his pint glass, willing the other man to go away.

    Stiles hesitates near the empty chair. “Mind if I join you?”

    “Yes,” Derek growls and wishes he could flash his red alpha eyes at this stranger to make him leave. 

    Looking from afar was one thing. Up close, Stiles’s eyes look like whiskey in firelight and he smells like citrus and woodsmoke. Derek’s wolf is going crazy inside him and he pushes down his reaction to this man. There’s something else, something other, but there are plenty of people who have residual magic of shifters in their family. It leaves a trace, but is often indistinct.

    Stiles grins, pulls out the chair, and sits down. “Great.”

    Summary

    As it turns out, Derek is a total doom-magnet, attracting danger wherever he stalks, broods, or breathes, and Stiles has just about had enough of it.

    “You have got to be kidding me.”

    Derek looks up at him, half conscious, and Stiles feels like leaving him to it and just going home. But he doesn't, because of course, he has to save him.

    --

    Stiles' life is complicated. His best friend is a werewolf and his late mother blessed him with a gift, a gift that's seriously making him reconsider a lot of life choices. So he's an emissary, but why'd it have to be for the grumpiest Alpha on the planet? Oh, and that same Alpha also hates his guts, so there's that.

    Summary

    Juan Jimenez is a middleman of no particular consequence currently under investigation by the FBI. S.H.I.E.L.D. isn’t interested in him, but they do want his employer, a secret Russian banker Phil hasn’t been able to identify. Phil has been authorized to contact Jimenez and negotiate a deal - the only problem is, Jimenez isn’t the type to go quietly. He’s going to hire someone, probably a mercenary, to infiltrate the FBI office where Phil and his S.H.I.E.L.D. team are staying.

    The mercenary’s job will most likely be to steal or destroy the case the FBI has built against Jimenez, but that’s okay. Phil’s confident that he and his team can handle it.
