"If you have only one passion in life - football - and you pursue it to the exclusion of everything else, it becomes very dangerous. When you stop doing this activity it is as though you are dying. The death of that activity is a death in itself."
I seem to have so many days off every single month, no clue why that keeps happening. In August it was summer holidays, four glorious weeks of doing nothing but reading fics in the sun (except there was no sun but well). So here’s my Sterek Fic Rec List #8!
“You know this still really weird, right?” Stiles asks around the toothpaste in his mouth. “What’s weird?” Derek asks. Stiles spits and rinses his mouth out. “The cuddling. The cuddling is weird. This-” Stiles says, holding up his toothbrush to the mirror. “-is weird. The fact that I have spare clothes here is weird.”
Derek’s been letting his job dictate his life ever since he was promoted from freelance photographer to official travel photographer. In his five years of travel, he’s built relationships in countries all across the globe, yet he still returns home after each job as lonely as ever. When he decides to try out the pen pal site Laura recommends to him, he doesn’t know what to expect. Derek isn’t prepared for Stiles, a small town guy with big dreams of seeing the world. And he certainly isn’t prepared to fall in love with him. He has to remind himself that this is just a pen pal thing and not to get carried away. It’s not like Stiles could ever like him back.
This is the story about how Stiles Stilinski becomes a man. A much greater challenge altogether, for to achieve it – he must win the heart of his one, true love.
Yes, I am aware that this space is reserved for the same people every single month. Because they write the best mini fics. Leave me alone. And check out obroech, coffeeinallcaps and felicitysmock because the Friends meme thing is my favorite thing ever. Also very much recommended is Brii’s AU fic rec blog which is all kinds of awesome - FUCKYEAHSTEREKAUS!
