All-Inclusive by elisera (6,483 - E)
Stiles came alone to New York, to study under Professor Saeed and to prove that he could make it on his own, and he has. He’s got friends here, and allies, but no one touches him quite with the casual ease of his own pack. Nevermind the way Derek does.
I Should Meet You Because I Love You by derekstilinski (22,573 - M)

Love All by tattooedsiren (47,602 - E)
When Stiles Stilinksi steps foot onto Court 8 at Roland Garros, it’s everything he’s been dreaming of for the last nine years, and everything his life has been building towards since the first time he held a tennis racquet in his hands fourteen years ago.
It’s kinda funny, Stiles thinks, that his first game in a Grand Slam (that’s right, he’s playing in a freaking Grand Slam) is against a fellow American. Hell, he’s a fellow Californian. Derek Hale is slightly taller than him, his face is stubbled and just as grumpy in real life as he’s seen in numerous photos and video coverage. And yeah, in any other circumstance Stiles might admit that the stubble and general sense of ‘stay the hell away from me’ totally works for him. But right now it’s just intimidating as fuck.
Maybe if I tell myself enough (I’ll get over you) by CiaraWrites (4,423 - T)
“Derek?” he asks in astonishment.
Derek’s frozen in front of him, eyes boring into Stiles’ like he can’t believe it’s really him.
“I thought you were in Russia?” Stiles asks because it looks like Derek is having trouble forming words. Derek’s been in Russia for five years. Stiles met him two weeks before he left. Stiles fell in love with him two weeks before he left.
“I- I am,” Derek stutters. “I’m only here for the night,” he adds apologetically.
Road Trips Were Made For Emergency Playlists by mysecretashes (6,850 - E)
Stiles and Allison end up at the same college all the way across the country, and every summer they take a road trip back home.
This is their last.
Somewhere In Between by amazingpages (33,029 - T)
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.
Sourwolf Candy by relenafanel (35,701 - M)
When the Sourwolf Candy franchise offers a $10,000 annual scholarship to the school of the winner’s choice, Stiles jumps at the chance to enter. It doesn’t matter that the other prizes are a day with one of the Hales and a lifetime supply of Sourwolf Candy. The sacrifices are worth it, because if there’s one thing that Stiles hates more than Sourwolf Candy, it’s Derek Hale.
So of course he has to spend a day with the guy who made the catchphrase ‘Don’t be such a Sourwolf’ popular: Sourfaced Derek Hale himself. If he doesn’t, he doesn’t get his scholarship money.
Derek just wants a little sugar. Or a lot of sugar, as the case may be.
A whole case of sugar.
(He stress-eats sugar, ok?)
You Can Cry Wolf, But Stop Running by iamursforevrmre (16,615 - E)
Derek Hale is the third baseman for the Los Angeles Dodgers. Stiles doesn’t know why he has an apparent thing for third basemen and he has no clue why he’s even watching the Dodgers. He’s a Mets fan.
