(Soundtrack: Call Me Maybe, Carly Rae Jepsen) (yes I went there)  

Stiles has watched Notting Hill approximately eighty times, You’ve Got Mail about 15 times, Beauty and the Beast —- he’s lost count of how many times he’s watched that, but Shiver his one of his favorite books (even though he’ll never admit that), so it’s pretty safe to say he understands the appeal of bookshops. He totally does.

That’s why he’s planning on getting a job at the on-campus bookshop. Peter - the guy who owns it - and he are friends, Stiles is a hundred percent sure the job is already his, so this interview is just a formality.

However, Stiles is not prepared for the sight that greets him as soon as he walks into the Hale Bookstore. The guy behind the counter looks like something coming straight out of a young adult novel, one of those books where everyone is Tall, Handsome, possibly covered in runes and with Green Eyes. Exceptionally Green Eyes, if he dare say so, that also light up when the other guy smiles, and Stiles can totally do this. He can totally be brilliant. Right?

"You’re not Peter," he says, and—- okay, maybe that wasn’t the best thing to say. Maybe.

The guy stops smiling and nods, “Yeah. He’s on vacation. I’m his nephew.” 

"Oh." A for effort, Stilinski… “Uhm. I have an interview? A job interview. To work here.” 

Tall and Handsome straightens his spine, fumbling around and picking up a post-it from the cash register. “Stil..inski? Stilinksi? Is this your name?”

"Nope. That’s my last name. Everyone calls me Stiles, anyway, and Peter does, too, so yeah. You can call me Stiles. Everyone calls me Stiles."

"Everyone."

"Calls me Stiles."

The guy tries very hard to stifle a laughter and clears his throat instead, gesturing towards the door to the backroom. “Okay, go ahead and sit down, I’ll be right there.”

Stiles most definitely does not peek at Mystery Guy’s ass as he makes his way to the backroom door. Yep, he totally understands the appeal of bookshops.

Derek/Stiles yes yes

/climbs iva and howls

  • who is the big spoon/little spoon: derek is the big spoon. if not else, because stiles legitimately cannot stay put in bed. he thrashes. he talks. he kicks imaginary kanimas. he even tried to sleepwalk one night, the little fucker, so derek just threw curled up behind him and bit his neck, growling. unsurprisingly, it worked. 
  • what is their favorite non-sexual activity: perusing wikipedia. because stiles’s brain is just like the rest of him, it won’t stay still, and stiles is basically a sponge, right, he needs to know everything and wikipedia is the quickest way to unlimited knowledge (sort of. it is when you’re stiles, okay). derek usually chills on the bed and plays with his phone - at least, this is what stiles thinks he does. derek is actually looking at him. that’s a legit pastime when you’re a werewolf.
  • who uses all the hot water in the morning: it used to be stiles, but it’s not a problem anymore because now they shower together. derek will firmly deny he purrs whenever stiles washes his hair, but we all know better amirite. 
  • what they order from take out: i’m gonna go with pizza because i can totally see them on stiles’s couch, eating pizza and watching Friends reruns. 
  • what is the most trivial thing they fight over: "where did i put my phone? where did you put your phone! i’ve been trying to call you for the past three hours, and what does it mean you’ve dropped it and cracked the screen? again?! should i get you a nokia 3310?”
  • who does most of the cleaning: derek. kind of comes with living on your own for so long. if you don’t do housekeeping bad things will happen. bad things like roaches, and derek swore to himself he was never going to let that happen ever again. there’s a lot of midnight cleaning, too, because everyone knows midnight is the best time for  cleaning your kitchen.
  • what has a season pass in their DVR: Extreme Makeover Home Edition. derek never explained why, but stiles knows. they watch it together, curled up on the couch, and stiles makes a point of not saying anything about the way derek’s eyes sometimes get a bit red.
  • who controls the netflix queue: stiles. he has a shirt that reads “king of the remote” and all.
  • who calls up the super/landlord when the heat’s not working: stiles, but that’s just because derek doesn’t actually need the heat. they cuddle in order to share body heat, sure, but sometimes derek leaves in the middle of the night because he feels compelled to run, so a good heating maintenance is mandatory. stiles still has to learn how to do that himself so he doesn’t bother his father too much with it. if they’re at derek’s, however, derek doesn’t leave stiles alone. 
  • who leaves their stuff around: two words: scent marking.
  • who remembers to buy the milk: derek. stiles is pretty sure he’s a grocery shopping ninja. the fridge is always stocked but he’s never seen the other actually buy groceries.
  • who remembers anniversaries: they both do. they have a calendar, of course, but they just don’t forget easily. they both know that small things (such as anniversaries) are important.
