stiffkitten97 asked:

the ‘we’re the only ones in this subway car and the metro broke down’ au pretty please?

Stiles loves Scott. He really, truly does. But if he ever calls him over for an “emergency” at 3 in the morning again, Stiles is going to kill him. Painfully. And very slowly.

Of course, that was over an hour ago and Stiles is finally on his way back to his apartment. Scott had offered to let him crash, but then Stiles would have had to get up even earlier to make it back to his apartment then all the way across the city to get to work on time. It just wasn’t worth it.

It’s only him and one other guy, who’s fastidiously reading his book, on the subway. Stiles can’t decide if the other guy’s presence makes the situation more or less creepy. More, because he looks like he could kill Stiles without breaking a sweat. Less, because anyone that into a book called We Should All Be Feminists can’t be all that bad, right?

He’s going to kill Scott.

The train screeches to a stop at the next stop, but no one gets on. The other guy glances at Stiles, and Stiles quickly glances away, pretending that he definitely hadn’t been watching the guy for the past several minutes.

Stiles glances at the empty platform and resists the urge to shudder. He hates when the city’s this quiet. It’s unnatural.

Thankfully, he only has two stops and a seven and a half minute walk until he’ll reach his bed.

He begins running through ideas of how to kill the next twenty minutes as the train leaves the platform. Stiles has made it to three hundred sheep when the train lurches to a stop and he goes sliding along the bench. He grunts as he slams against the end of the seat. The lights flicker.

Stiles looks towards the other man who’s sprawled on the floor, apparently too focused to even attempt to grab a hold of something. Stiles realizes his book is closer to him than the guy and picks it up.

Before he can stand, a terrible screech comes over the speakers as they try to explain what’s going on. Stiles can only catch what sounds like “temporary” and “soon.” He sighs heavily. He’s been around enough to know that this could take awhile.

He walks over to the guy and passes him the book. The man nods gratefully and immediately looks down to open his book again.

“Did you catch any of what they said?” Stiles asks. He’s trying to guess if he should tough it out or just cave and try to sleep through it.

The man shakes his head.

Stiles sits down across from him, but doesn’t say anything else. His foot bounces relentlessly and he drums his fingers against the bench. He doesn’t even notice though because he’s already focusing all his energy on not freaking out.

If the lights go out, they’ll be in pitch blackness. And if any other trains don’t know they need to stop, they’ll all be fucked. At least since it’s so late, they’ll have at least an hour before that’d be the case. But that also means it may be another hour before they get help.

Stiles doesn’t even notice when the man keeps looking up to glare at him. Once his other foot starts to join the nonsensical song, the man heaves a heavy sigh.

“Can you stop?” he asks exasperatedly.

“What?” Stiles looks up sharply.

The man makes a gesture to Stiles in one sweeping person.

“You want me to stop being?” Stiles considers scooting away, this man could be crazy, it is the subway after all.

“No,” the man grunts, “I want you to stop-“ The man begins exaggeratedly bouncing his legs and tapping his fingers.

“Oh,” Stiles says as he gets it, relaxing a little. “Sorry.”

The man nods at the apology and turns back to his book. Less than a minute later and Stiles feet are back to tapping against the ground.

“Seriously?” the man groans.

“Ah, shit, man. I’m sorry,” Stiles says, “This shit just makes me a little… eh. You know?”

The man glances at Stiles like he’s trying to catalogue if he thinks he’s going to have an emergency on his hands.

“It’ll be fine,” he finally says.

“Or this is the start of the apocalypse.”

“I’m sure that’s it. Next you’re going to tell me that we’re going to have to work together to stay alive and after something dramatic happens, we’re going to decide to save the world too.”

Stiles laughs brightly. “Exactly, but you left out the part where you get kidnapped by the evil zombies and I decide to risk my life to save you.”

“Is that right?”

Stiles nods firmly. The guy finally cracks a smile.

“Stiles,” he says as he holds out his hand to shake.

The guy leans across the space to firmly shake his hand and replies, “Derek.”

“Nice to meet you.”

“Is it,” Derek snarks, “you don’t seem very happy with a stopped train.”

“Then not nice to meet you,” Stiles rebuts.

“Not nice to meet you indeed.”

Sterek Support Package [Favorite Fics]

There’s no denying that the Sterek fandom has faced some tough times recently. The Sterek Support Network is bringing back the love with support packages to highlight some of the best that our fandom has to offer.

Every month we’ll be releasing different packages, and this month’s theme: favorite fics!!

There’s Monsters at Home [E] [83575] calrissian18

“How did you get past the wards?” Derek had put them up, with Peter’s grudging assistance, after the Alpha pack had made themselves at home a few times too many.

The guy pulled a face. “You mean the wards a five-year-old girl with the mental ability of a goldfish could deconstruct?” He blinked wide eyes at Derek. “Gee, I don’t know. It’s bound to go down as one of life’s great mysteries.”

Derek despised him.

Magical Stiles, angsty pining, Derek the failwolf and pack feels all around? What more could I ask for? - arcane-renegade

All Else Perished [T] [11778] keskasi

There are only so many times a person can fall before the world becomes a vertical blur. Life, Stiles has found, is much the same way. There are only so many times a person can be born, live, and die before the epochs start to smear into one long, eternal day. Or night, as the case may be.

Different spin on the usual soul mates trope, I love the way it is written :) -rooming-with-a-narwhal

And Down We Fell [M] [4315] ali_inthejungle

Stiles is a pirate.

A gay pirate.

I found this after playing Cosmo Jarvis’ song ‘Gay Pirates’ on repeat for days. Pure angst and lots of tears. - rooming-with-a-narwhal

Love Don’t Die [E] [33549] Finduilas

Derek is nine years old when he discovers the gift that he’s been given. A gift that he didn’t necessarily ask for. Derek can touch dead things and bring them back to life. But not without consequences and conditions, many of which are heartbreaking.

Many years later, his path crosses that of his childhood sweetheart, Stiles, in very unfortunate circumstances. But now, Derek’s gift gives him the power to save Stiles. And damned be the consequences.

One of my fave aus/tv show crossovers. Made me smile and cry, eeeeh I love it. - rooming-with-a-narwhal

Fly a Little Faster [T] [32052] mirrorkill

Everyone knows when you go back in time, you shouldn’t step on an ant, just in case you accidentally kill your own grandparent or something. But what happens when you go back in time and, uh, accidentally interrupt the one event that apparently made the Grumpiest Alpha in Town into a ball of mindless manpain?

Well, if Marty McFly can do it, so can Stiles Stilinski. All he has to do is get Derek and Paige to fall in love before he gets pulled back to his own time. And before he makes anything worse. That’s easy as pie, right? Right?

This fic is my warm blanket. There is really no other way to put it. I just makes me feel really happy when I’ve had a rough day, and I have legitimately lost count of how many times I have read it. BURY ME WITH THIS FIC - supernim

Someone Else’s Dream [T] [36644] theroguesgambit

Post-3B. Derek has gone missing, and Stiles’ dreams might be the only way to save him.

OH MAN THIS FIC the characterisation is SO ON POINT and it makes you ache in ways you didn’t think were possible. I just really love it, okay? okay.  - supernim

A Little Lost [M] [73366] exclamation

A magical accident sends Stiles back in time. Now he’s stuck in New York, living with Derek and Laura, and the only way to get back to his own time is to learn to use magic. Meanwhile, he must figure out how much he can tell them about their future. Can he warn them about the dangers they face? Can he change his own past?

And can he trust the creature known as Bookworm, who seems to know him better than he knows himself?

yes, another time travel fic SHHHHH let me have this. Its part of a series, and it will make you weep with joy (and pain) The OCs are interesting and Laura Hale will steal your heart - supernim

HAPPY BIRTHDAY SARAH ( obriensnipples ) U NERD


Stiles glares at a crate of avocados.

He reaches out to test another one, squeezing it gently to test for its ripeness, but once again it turns out hard. He’s pretty sure he’s been through three fourths of the crate at this point and all of them are too firm. Really, he should have bought some when he last went shopping to give them time to ripen, but, then again, his cravings can be unpredictable at times. And he really wants fresh guacamole, like, today.

Sighing, he considers abandoning the farmers market and braving the local chain grocery store, but just as he’s reaching out to try one last avocado, someone else’s hand darts out to grab it.

“Hey!” Stiles yelps as his hand is knocked out of the way. He turns his glare on the intruder, losing hold of his anger for a moment as he takes in the man’s broad chest and perfectly groomed stubble.

However, as soon as he sees the avocado skin flex perfectly under the man’s fingers, he just about sees red.

“Oh my god,” he hisses, launching himself at the avocado. “Give me that!”

“What the hell?” the guy replies, jerking his hands away and holding the avocado away from Stiles’ reach. “What the fuck is your problem?”

“I have spent the last hour searching the entire market for a ripe avocado and you just waltz on in and find it on the first try,” Stiles growls, glare still sharp.

“So?” Tall, Dark, and Stubbly asks, unmoved.

“So don’t you think it’s only fair – ” Stiles starts, but Avocado Asshole cuts him off.

“No,” he snorts, placing the avocado in a plastic bag and heading over to the stall owner to pay. “It’s not my fault you suck at finding the best produce.”

“I’m clearly just unlucky!” Stiles shouts at Avocado Asshole’s retreating back, hands curled up into fists at his sides.

He finally finds ripe, but badly bruised, avocados at a mega chain grocery store an hour and a half later. However, it’s only once he gets home that he realizes he forgot to get tomatoes.

Fuck his life.

  • Your Stares
  • Julia Jones

This song has been sitting in my drafts for close to 6 months. Riddled with mistakes, moments where I’m off key, where the piano is too loud, or the harmonies are wrong. But here it is. 

It’s for all the unrequited loves, for all the people who let you down. It’s for pining and heartache, for giving up on something, or someone, that you didn’t want to let go. For me, it’s about loving someone, but that someone not loving you back.

This was written as a sterek song; even more as a hobrien song. But it’s become more than that to me now. Lost potential, here’s to you. My fellow sterek shippers, here’s to us. 

anonymous asked:

hi i'm sorry if i'm being bothersome but i was just wondering what happened with the youtuber au you were writing?

ah, i have a few… these here are all separate oneshots

and then this particular universe where stiles is a youtuber

i feel like you’re probably asking about the second one, and it’s not a WIP, but i wouldn’t neccesarily close the door on that universe either. if i ever get inspired to write more in that universe i will, but it feels pretty complete to me, just some light fluffy stuff. hope that helps!  (✿◕ ‿◕ฺ)ノ))。₀: *゚

anonymous asked:

I've been feeling poorly for about 2 days but now I am feeling a little bit better and I'd like to read a fluffy sterek fic. Do you have any suggestion? I particularly like daddy derek and daddy stiles. Thanks in advance, I love your fics :)

As luck would have it, someone else just reminded me of Stiles’s Story Time, which is an amazing story with dad Derek.

Stiles’s Story Time [E] [125430]

Where Stiles is a librarian who is in charge of the kids’ reading hour and such. And Derek is 6-year-old Scott’s adoptive dad. And Stiles has his own take on Stories and Scott loves wolves and Derek tries not to admit that he likes the way Stiles’s face looks in those glasses.
Or something like that.

And these are both also incredibly cute parent Sterek fics:

When You Wish Upon a Dragon [T] [13739]

Stiles is at the Hale house, lounging on the front stoop watching Isaac, Erica, and Boyd wrestle, when the baby comes running out of the woods.
Derek becomes instant father to a magically appearing baby and falls in love. Stiles can’t take the cute and worries Derek’s heart will break if he loses the kid.

Our Four Stranded Braid series [G] [18493]

“Hi Mr. Stilinski!” Lydia said pertly. “My name’s Lydia, and this is my daddy. His name is Derek Andrew Hale and he watches all of your videos on YouTube a lot, but he still can’t braid.”

[Stiles is a celebrity YouTube hairstylist. Derek may or may not have a crush. Lydia just wants a French braid for school picture day.]

Sterek Mpreg AU: Derek has to take off on werewolf business away from Beacon Hills but doesn’t tell anyone he might not return again. His last wish is to make things right with Stiles so they spend hours together at Stiles’ place, making love and telling each other all the things they haven’t before. 
Only few days after, Stiles realizes Derek left him a gift - he’s pregnant. 

Few months later Derek, safe and sound, returns to Beacon Hills to find his Stiles round and glowing, carrying a second heartbeat under his heart. Stiles is mad with him for exactly 30 minutes before they are cuddling on the couch, Derek admiring Stiles’ belly and wiping his tears away. 

The remaining 3 months Derek takes care of Stiles and after a long painful labour the boys are gifted with a beautiful baby girl.  

Bunny Tracks

read it on the AO3 at

by Stereksale7

Based off a tumblr post i saw somewhere:
“On Easter, we had this tradition where an old man down the road would paint little ‘bunny’ prints along the sidewalk, as well as up to the door of every house where a child lives…and he’s done this every year, without fail, since before I was born.

Over the summer, that old man passed away, so no one in their right mind expected to see the tracks this year. However, when I woke up- there they were!

Turns out that his eighteen year old grandson (who happens to be known as the badass of our school) got up at three this morning and spent four hours- by himself -painting the prints; just to make sure that the neighborhood kids wouldn’t be disappointed.

My faith in our generation = restored. ”

Do you know any sterek fics where there's superhero!Derek or superhero! Stiles or both?? Please and thank you!

Hey there Samioli and Anon! We’ve got you covered. ;)

Check out our Marvel AU tag for more fics!

The Curious Incident of the Cat in the Night-Time by Saucery

(1,400 I Teen I Complete I Catwoman AU)

Stiles is Catwoman.

hoping some ghost would be here still by darthjamtart

(1,602 I Teen I Complete I X-Men AU)

There’s a poster hanging in the window of the Beacon Hills library: brightly-colored depictions of children at desks, holding books, captioned, KEEP YOUR CHILDREN SAFE. KNOW WHAT’S IN THEIR CLASSROOMS. Smaller text at the bottom reads, Paid for by citizens in support of the Mutant Registration Act.

Sky High by Nival_Vixen

(7,456 I Mature I Complete I Sky High AU)

Scott’s a freshman at Sky High, along with his best friends Stiles and Isaac. On his first day, he realises he has an archenemy: Derek Hale. By the end of the week, Scott’s discovered his superpower, is dating the most popular girl at school, and everything seems to be perfect. Even though he hardly sees Stiles and Isaac anymore.

Stiles is a freshman at Sky High, and on his first day, he is put on the Sidekick track with both Isaac and Scott. By the end of his first week, Scott’s spending all of his time with the supposedly perfect Allison, so Stiles and Isaac make friends with Derek Hale, Erica Reyes, and (first-name unknown) Boyd. (Friends is kind of a loosely applied term.)

Derek is a junior at Sky High, and only has friends because Erica’s too pushy to leave him alone, and where she goes, Boyd’s not far behind. His first day back finds him staring at Scott McCall, the son of the super that put his uncle in Beacon Hills Penitentiary. (He’s not staring at McCall’s friend, no matter what Erica thinks, even though he can recite how many moles he has within ten minutes.)

Stiles kinda likes the way his life has turned out, fighting the righteous fight alongside some pretty kickass individuals.

(11,878 I General I Complete I Spiderman AU)

Derek and Stiles have a complicated history. There’s a guy in a red and blue spandex suit who complicates things further.

Professor Xavier’s a Total Douchebag by Fanhag102

(12,995 I Teen I Complete I X-Men AU)

Derek Hale can read minds. If he could have chosen a mutant power for himself instead of being given one by random, genetic happenstance it’s safe to say mind-reading would not have been his 1st, 2nd, or even 96th choice.

Maybe if he’d gotten the power of invisibility he wouldn’t be sitting in a senior Economics class next to a hyperactive kid with a buzz cut who won’t stop thinking about dicks.

it’s gonna take a superman by kellifer_fic

(14,184 I Teen I Complete I Sky High AU)

Derek figured the Children of Villains support group would at least be full of outcasts like him. How wrong could he be?

With Great Power Come Annoying Sidekicks by KuriKuri

(14,809 I Teen I Complete)

“I don’t want to be a superhero,” Derek protests, and he has half a mind to leave right now, ditch Stiles and get back to his life.

“Ah, so you’re going the Peter Parker route,” Stiles says, nodding solemnly. “Remember, with great power comes great responsibility.”

“Who’s Peter Parker?” Derek asks, confused.

“Oh my god, you have so much to learn,” Stiles replies, gaping at Derek.

But Not With Haste by uraneia

(20,776 I Explicit I Complete I X-Men AU)

It’s been years since Derek escaped from the hunters who killed his family and bound him in his human form. He travels solo, never staying in one place, keeping under the radar–until a skinny, smart-mouthed kid stows away in the back of his truck.

Four months ago Stiles’s first kiss put his best friend in a coma. His dad gave him a couple hundred bucks and a hug and told him to run. By the time Stiles witnesses the cage fighter known as Wolverine take out a shotgun and its wielder with his bare hands, he’s got a plan. He knows there’s a school in New York for kids like him. All he has to do is get there.

OR, in which Derek is the werewolf version of Wolverine and Stiles is Rogue and the plot of X-Men progresses accordingly, with a few notable deviations.

Staring into the Sun by Original_Cypher

(32,491 I Teen I Complete I X-Men AU–Sort of)

Our protagonists are attending Beacon Hills Academy, an institution for ‘specials’. They’ve been detected early on, and some of them are showing spectacular abilities already. The Hales are a genetic mystery all together. Stiles, however, despite having being singled out as a kid, is nothing special. And he knows it.
Circumstances and people – read Peter – conspire to put Stiles and Derek together. Changes ensue.
Then all hell breaks loose. 

Who said that? by coconutcranberries (now orphan_account)

(33,278 I Not Rated (Angsty says: Teen) I Complete)

Stiles has a very unique superpower, in that he doesn’t exist. He’s invisible, untouchable, unhearable-is that a word?-and just not there. He feels like a ghost most of the time, although he can’t walk through walls (he tried, the wall took offense and his nose paid the price) and he can still trip over his own feet. He blends perfectly into the background and no matter how hard he tries, nobody knows he’s there.

It’s a lonely life, he’s not gonna lie.

But suddenly something changes. Stiles is part of a group project which includes probably the most explosive combination of people in his class. These people don’t notice when he waves a hand right in front of their face-how could they when he doesn’t exist? The possibilities are endless.

Oh, this is going to be so much fun.

Spark, Flame, Burn by zjofierose

(35,949 I Mature I Complete I Warning: PTSD I X-Men AU)

He remembers his mother going out to protest in her “Proud Mom of a Special Child” shirt. He also remembers that she never came back.

In a deeply segregated city of the very rich and the very poor, a traumatized mutant turns up in Stiles’ dark alley, and turns his world upside down. While a terrorist known as the Mutant Maker attacks and turns unsuspecting citizens, Stiles and his strange new friend must help each other stay alive and one step ahead of the Hunters who would take them down.

Enjoy/Love and Internet Hugs,

Angsty and Fluffy
