I wonder how many people assumed the betas were actually Derek's kids?
Like, they don't know him, he's not ~Derek Hale~ he's just a call-in regular who's always polite on the phone, a servers fave, but still, there's some assumptions to be made. Everyone does it, makes guesses about the person who goes with the voice on the phone. The experienced ones can identify a Karen by word one. And it's fun, something to lighten the mood. So, he's calling in a takeout order (the delivery guys love him, always tips over 20) and the server writing down the honestly staggering amount of food can hear noise in the background, laughter and yelling, and Derek stops mid-order, his voice taking on the tone of every parent dealing with an unruly kid.
"Hold on a second - Erica, I swear to God if you jump off there one more time, you will survive the fall, you will not survive me, understand? Yeah, that's what I thought - okay, sorry, where was I?"
And this time he says he'll come pick it up himself, and everyone is expecting a Mark Sloane-type dilf with at least two small kids, based on the background noise alone, and then he shows up, he's just like....a college dude. He's got three teenagers with him. He calls the blonde babe Erica. He tells them they better help carry the bags or they won't get any of the lemon bars Stiles is making (what the hell is a Stiles?) and they listen. He leaves a thirty dollar tip.
Sterek Fic Rec - May 2022. Hello hello! New list of fics for you all to enjoy.
Hot for Teacher('s Aide) by linksofmemories_archive (1/1 | 8K | Teen)
“He invited you to his apartment.”
“To do a lesson plan.”
“Yeah and to probably lesson your plan while you’re there,” Scott said, waggling his eyebrows.
“That made no sense, but you still managed to make it sound dirty,” Stiles said. “I’m impressed.”
Lucky Day by SassyStarboard (1/1 | 3K | Teen)
“Good afternoon, my name is Deputy Stilinski.” Stiles managed. The stare he received in return was so intense it burned. Stiles bit his lip, looking between the three werewolves. “Um, I’m here because I’d like to ask the residents of this home about a recent string of break-ins that have been occurring in this neighborhood. We—we being the Beacon Hills Police Department—we’ve received reports of four burglaries over the past three months, all four took place in this area and also you guys were lowkey resisting the law because you kept slamming the door in my face so, uh, free advice, don’t do that because some of the people I work with are major assholes.”
soulmate au + cop stiles + derek’s overeager sisters = YES
If I should stumble, catch my fall by Gorgeousgreymatter (1/1 | 4K | Mature)
Well, friendship is canceled. That's all Stiles can think when he walks into the locker room and finds it empty, with Scott's dumb werewolf ass completely AWOL despite the text message he'd received assuring him otherwise. Which wouldn't be that bad, if not for the fact that now Stiles is face to face with a very wet, very naked Derek Hale.
pretty in tents by kellifer_fic (1/1 | 7K | Mature)
Even though he’s making fun of it, Stiles thinks the whole thing sounds awesome and, like most stuff these days, the experience is going to be totally wasted on Scott.
He's Just Knot That Into You by aggybird (1/1 | 3K | Mature)
Stiles doesn't have much luck finding Mr. Right, and Derek the bartender hears all about it. (Sort of movie-fusion AU.)
Hot Nerd Alert by alisvolatpropiis (1/1 | 4K | Not Rated)
Derek can't believe he's actually doing this: taking a selfie snap of the guy he’s been crushing on for weeks to prove to Danny that one, yes, he really does exist, and two, he really is that hot and thus he is totally justified in being too scared to make a move.
Or you know, even talk to the guy outside of the class they share.
In his defense, this isn’t just any guy. This THE guy. Hot Nerd. The utterly adorable but still somehow insanely sexy freshman in his twentieth century American Lit class who he’s been lusting over since the first day of the semester. If there were ever a time for him to be that person who tries to be subtle while taking snaps of other people, this is it.
I'm tired and I'm wasted, irrational by LunaCanisLupus_22 (1/1 | 8K | Explicit)
Derek reads the message twice just to be sure that he isn’t dreaming.
Help, it reads, accidntly kidnpd somr dudew
He takes a moment to compose his reply. What the hell Laura?
Or the one where Laura wakes him up in the middle of the night because she's kidnapped some random guy from the club and it turns out he's Derek's mate.
Long Standing Devotion by whenwordsmakesense (1/1 | 3K | Teen)
The Alpha turns his gaze on him. And—stops. He says, “Stiles?” And Stiles panics.
It’s totally not his fault that he has his bat at the ever-ready, and it’s totally not his fault that he bats at the Alpha with it, knocking him out.
Maybe that was a harsh thing to do but the last time he’d had to deal with an Alpha it was not pleasant. The dude wanted him as his mate. Which was creepy as fuck even without the knowledge that the Alpha was about twenty years older than him.
“Fuck my life,” he groans, and kicks at the still fallen magic book. It’s the fault of this book. It must be a cursed book, so that every spell done from it has the opposite effect. He asked for someone to love, but he got a creep. His goddamn life.
He doesn’t even live in Beacon Hills anymore!
how to unsend an embarrassing text (hint: you can't) by bibliosexual (1/1 | 1K | General)
Laura tells him it’s cowardly and unromantic to confess feelings over text, but too bad. Derek can’t think of anything more terrifying than showing up on Stiles’ doorstep (conveniently, the apartment right below Derek’s) to tell him to his face. And Derek wants to know, okay? Has to know. He needs closure. He can’t keep second-guessing every microsecond of every interaction with Stiles, trying to guess how he’s feeling, and he can’t keep hoping like this. He’ll go insane. Stiles has been his neighbor/friend/hopeless crush for almost six months already, and Derek definitely can’t take another six.
It's Always Been You, Dumbass by stilinskisparkles (1/1 | 11K | Teen)
“Alright, cool, we should go,” Stiles says breezily, dusting off his hands as he stands.
“But… Do you even care about photography?”
“Not as much as I should,” Stiles plants both his hands on the table, bracketing Derek in, “You’ll have to correct my miscreant ways.”
princecharmingwinks special mention (this fic is so soft and wholesome! I love domestic sterek and this fic nails it !)
I like shiny things but I'd marry you with paper rings by Tails89 (1/1 | 5K | Teen)
“I swear the universe is out to get me,” Stiles whines, flinging his hands up at the ceiling. “Derek’s days off don’t line up with mine until next week.” He fidgets with the ring box, opening and closing it. “I can’t keep it at our place, Derek will sniff it out. I just need to hide it for a few days.”
He sits up and gives Scott his best pleading eyes.
“Yeah, no worries, man,” Scott says, clapping Stiles on the shoulder. “I’m really happy for you guys. This is going to be so amazing, just you wait!”
Scott just had to go and jinx it.
Woohooo another month wrapped. Hope you find some gems that suit your taste! :) See you next time.
Derek is a prince and general in the army. Stiles is paid to be his personal bedwarmer and takes care of D's horse Camaro, who's notorious for hating people. Peter is a traitor siding with Kate. He tries to kill D and SA S when the truth comes out. At one point, S rides Camaro to the castle to pass on a message about P and D and Laura believes him because if Camaro likes him, S must be important to D and therefore trust worthy. I think it's a happy ending
Hi anon! @nerdherderette thinks it could be this one!
Golden Boy by trilliath
(19/19 I 127,727 I Explicit I Sterek)
Apparently it still amuses his uncle to buy sex slaves for him, no matter how steadfastly he refuses to use them. Derek ducks into his tent with a resigned sigh, prepared to dress and reassign whatever new beauty Peter has bought him. They do make for loyal servants, so he can't really complain about Peter's 'gifts'. But it is annoying to deal with, to have to spend his evening sorting out a slave instead of being able to go right to bed. It's just something he has to learn to accept as a byproduct of serving alongside his uncle.
But when he lays eyes on the boy laying amid his furs, he finds his breath catching in his throat. His skin is golden with the candle-light glimmering against the sheen of oil that has been slathered on his bared body. His lips are parted, and they work over inaudible words or sounds. His skin is flushed, nipples peaked and pierced with simple but unexpected golden rings. He's spectacularly beautiful in the candlelight. The many glowing candles that have been added to his usual lighting cast glittering edges and shadows, imbuing an almost unearthly golden color to his skin.
It's enough that Derek hesitates.
theo being proud and gleeful when someone gives into their darker, more violent side vs him making sure liam never does.
so obviously, there’s a difference because it’s s5 vs s6 theo and he doesn’t really care about or want to corrupt people into being like him anymore but he’s also not suddenly a Scott McCall type pacifist either. in fact, the only people he cares about dying and he protects are himself, liam , and the mccall pack (for most of s6 at least. the finale shows he changed from just caring about himself and people in his circle to caring about people in general with what he did for gabe and how scott says he’s an ally who helps protect the town) he kills shrader, doesn’t really care at all about what happens to Jiang and tierney (doesn’t want them to die probably but also doesn’t want to help them not die if it means he gets put in danger), etc. the only people outside of the mccall pack that he saves is two hunters (who are out to kill him) and that’s solely because it was liam who was about to kill them.
gabe and nolan were 2 hunters that theo know would probably end up killing them (him) sooner or later but he still stops liam from hurting either of them and makes sure liam doesn’t have to live with the knowledge that he has someone’s blood on his hands (literally too since he also goes out of his way to clean liam’s hands free of blood after the zoo).
it comes down to theo cares about making sure liam doesn’t become like him and have to live with the guilt (like for example he literally pins and threatens to kill gabe in the exact same way after making sure that liam doesn’t). he also makes sure liam doesn’t have to get his hands dirty as much like when he took on all the ghost riders by himself which was unnecessary since he could have just fought with liam but instead put himself on the line to ensure his safety. he protects liam so much in s6 both physically and mentally and it makes me so emotional
