Operation: Positivity; in which 10 fics are rec'd

Everyone has those fics, the ones that make you feel better and happier and just make everything a tad bit brighter, right? I thought I’d share some of mine, to combat some of the nasty I’ve been seeing. I hope you find something new, or something you forgot, but mostly something that brings a smile to your face. 

  • Sweet Tooth by Spikedluv (in which there is ice cream and love and family)
  • There is a Brotherhood by minusoneday (in which there are pranks and snark and wooing with scones)
  • Unchained Melody by uraneia (in which Derek is an elvis impersonator (yes!) and everything is soft and sweet like a good love song) 
  • A Blossoming Romance by trelkez (in which there is a night blooming garden, nosy neighbors and Derek is not a vampire)
  • Fireman Derek’s Crazy Pie [Cheeseburger Baby] by owlpostagain (in which there are intentional fires in the name of science, non intentional fires in the name of annoyance, apology brownies and and a Laura side character that is spot on perfect)
  • The Newlywed Game by captain_loki (in which there is a vacation and sexual tension and banter and the absolute trumping of an old married couple)
  • Derek Hale’s No-Good, Very Bad Day by mackem (in which there is hiding and carpet fries and no such thing as despair meals)
  • Crash Landers by gyzym (in which there is note leaving and illegal parking and so much heart left on paper)
  • Sparkle Motion Speaking by coffeeinallcaps (in which everyone is in witness protection and the feds may or may not get a show)
  • Stiles’ Story Time by trilliath (in which there is kid!scott and librarian!stiles and some angst but every little bit is worth it because it’s beautiful)
Sterek Fic Rec List

I dont usually do fic rec lists, but I finally have a few in my Sterek Recs folder and thought I would share a few personal faves that I think everyone should read, but probably already have, because they are THAT GOOD! All are complete and all are Sterek (duh) will mention additional ships in summaries.

[Sleep]Walking After You by relenafanel

Words: 56,551

AO3 Summary:

Derek is a sleepwalker who keeps wandering into his downstairs neighbour’s bedroom.

Stiles is pretty sure the hot guy from the park is going to kill him in his sleep. He knows he shouldn’t have been so obvious about objectifying the guy’s really fine ass.

Too bad it turns out Derek is easier to get along with when he’s sleeping.

My Summary: Stiles pines for Derek. Derek pines for Stiles. Derek sleepwalks and steals bunny slippers. Stiles is arrested. Its so motherfucking cute with the just the right amount of angst. Its so fluffy and adorable, and actually Laugh Out Loud funny, like read it at 2am and muffle your cackling with a pillow. I read this whenever im feeling a bit down and next thing I know its like 4 hours later and im beaming. :D

An Awful Curse by leah k

Words: 6253

AO3 Summary:

Isaac is asleep in a chair. The angle of his neck makes Derek wince in sympathy.

"Isaac," Derek says.

Isaac snaps awake immediately.

"You’re-"

"Where’s Stiles?"

"Stiles?" Isaac asks.

Jesus. It’s not like they know more than one.


My Summary: This fic is equal parts breathtaking and heartbreaking. It was a fic I read the summary for and decided to skim, but got about 3 paragraphs in and decided this needed to be read properly. Its well written and just UGH makes my heart hurt in a good way. Basically the story switches between Stiles and Derek after they wake up from a coma they were put into by a witch and the reality they were in whilst in the coma, in which they were married and happy.

Breathe by tylerfucklin

Words: 1526

AO3 Summary: Kate may have been something he’d regret with every single breath he took, but Stiles was something he would cherish with each exhale.

My Summary: Im pretty sure this was if not the first, one of the first Sterek fanfics I read, so it has a very special place in my heart. Its short but sweet. Seriously worth the 10 minutes it takes to read and I cant really much more than that, it was a fantastic introduction to this fandom, and a nice reminder of why im so fond of you all. (Also I recommend reading everything by tylerfucklin, personal fave)


Fireman Derek’s Crazy Pie [Cheeseburger Baby] by owlpostagain

Words: 17,698

AO3 Summary:

“He can’t blame me for the fact that I live in a building full of people united in the singular effort to ogle Hot Fireman as often as humanly possible.”

Laura laughs, loud and echoing in the empty restaurant.

"Hot firemen can make a girl do crazy things," she agrees, nodding towards her brother’s name on the menu. "Derek won’t let me date anyone from his company, but that doesn’t mean I can’t appreciate the eye candy."

"Send them my way," Stiles suggests, finally loading up a forkful of pie. "Apparently I’m incompetent enough that I need to be babysat at all times, because it would be cheaper than dispatching a truck every time I try to use a kitchen appliance."

My Summary: If you havent read this then you are probably living under a rock. Seriously, the title alone made me want to read this. And it was so worth it, and not just because I have a huge thing for firemen. Another total Laugh Out Loud fic, if you dont love this story its safe to say you have no soul. Stiles keeps setting things on fire, more or less by accident. Derek cares in his special angry way. Stiles and Laura are bros, and falls in love with the baker of the desserts at her shop….who he hasnt met…or has he? <3

For the Love of Zombies by extantecstasy

Words: 13,790

AO3 Summary:  Struggling writer Derek happens upon zombie expert Stiles by accident, learns about the undead, pines from not-quite afar, finishes a novel, and maybe finds his muse. It’s a busy month.

My Summary: I LOVE THIS FIC SO MUCH I CANT BREATHE. The fic switches between reality where Derek is writing the novel whilst getting to know Stiles, and excerpts from the novel that he is writing. I still cant decide which story I like better. Its well written and you route for Sterek all the way through. Derek is such a nerdy nerd and is besties with Lydia. What more could you want?

Gravity’s Got Nothing On You by zosofi

Words: 83,890

AO3 Summary:

“Three weeks,” Derek says.

“Still don’t want to,” Stiles says.

“I’ll pay you,” Derek says, and that… that has Stiles interested. Alf’s Antique’s may be a great job, but it’s not a high-paying job, and half of Stiles’s tuition is coming from financial aid, so…

“How much,” Stiles asks, “are we talking here? Because I know your family, dude. And it’ll be kind of awkward after.“

“My family thinks you’re some sort of fucking gift to the world,” Derek seethes, like he’s jealous, “they’ll probably be pissed at me when we break it off, so don’t worry about that. Five hundred bucks.”

“A thousand,” Stiles says, because screw ethics. Also, the Hale family is loaded. Derek can deal.

My Summary: Basically you start reading this thinking itts going to be your everyday run of the mill pretend-to-be-boyfriends fic. And it starts of like that then BAM magic shit keeps happening and its fucking hilarious!! Now I love fake relationship fics but ive re read this several time just because of some fantastic one liners that have me howling. Its a slow build that makes the whole thing totally believable.

five times Derek and Stiles weren’t actually actually boyfriends (and one time they were) by HalfFizzbin

Words: 2862

AO3 Summary: In which Derek and Stiles are essentially a married couple. Except they’re not actually dating.

My Summary: Short, cute, and fluffy as fuck. Derek and Stiles act like a married couple and basically own a cat and its amazing!!

In The Air Tonight by Captain_Loki

Words: 4760

AO3 Summary: Derek has never been with a guy before, thankfully Stiles has a lot of theoretical knowledge and a thirst for experimentation, he’s a veritable Gay Yoda, Gayda if you will, except probably don’t use that word actually.

My Summary: I cannot begin to explain my love of this fic. Derek and Stiles start dating and Stiles want to boink because well you know Derek’s hot and he wants to lose his V Card. But Derek is a total buttsex virging and has no idea what hes doing when it comes to the doing dude department. So Stiles does the sensible thing and get them to have  an adult conversation about sex. And I just feel like this is a really real fic about aproaching sex in a sensibl way with someone you care about, and I love the way Derek and Stiles relationship is in the fic and its just a lovely read thats equal parts cringe and fluff.

Not Like Bond & Moneypenny by WhoNatural

Words: 29,869

AO3 Summary:

(AKA, the Ugly Betty AU where Stiles is totally Betty)

Stiles thinks he’s finally getting a break when a job at the sleek, sophisticated, Alpha Magazine opens up - but soon realises he’s not going to be writing anything and instead is playing tutor-slash-babysitter to their new Editor-in-Chief. Derek’s spoiled, grumpy, in way over his head…and so painfully attractive it makes Stiles want to lick his face. So there’s very little choice in the matter.

 “Totally not like that,” he maintains, “It’s not like we’re Bond and Moneypenny.” 

Scott gives him an excited grin, chuckling. “Dude, you’re totally his Miss Moneypenny!” he says, eyes wide like the world just finally started to make sense. “You’re the only one who won’t sleep with him even though you’re dying to.”

My Summary: What t says on the tin more or less. Stiles is Derek’s assisstant. Derek is kina hopless but Stiles is a badass who helps him be totally amazeballs. Of course shady shit goes and misunderstandings and such. And its just super great and I cant really describe this fic its just one you have to trust me when I say you should read it.

Possibly I Like The Thrill of Under Me You by stilinskisparkles

Words: 12,287

AO3 Summary: It’s not that the idea of Stiles talking about him doesn’t make his stomach wrap itself in knots, it’s that it does just that. It makes him unbelievably uncomfortable and he doesn’t quite know why. He’s twenty seven years old, he pays taxes, he takes his mother out for lunch on Sundays; he is a grown up. But he’s getting weird butterflies when he glances over his shoulder to look at Stiles and a heat in his chest that feels something like what he supposes want must feel like.

My Summary: Derek is a librarian. Stiles is an artist. Why are you still reading my summary who cares what else happens when you have that image in your head?! Derek is all shy and snarky and besties with Erica. Stiles is sarcy and spunky and imagining im covered in paint does things to me! Also Derek is an awkward virgin. Yeah I bet your clicking the link now…

Put Out The Fire (but not the one in my heart) by omelet

Words: 2838

AO3 Summary: Derek thinks this is getting a little out of hand. Because honestly, he never would have guessed that he would one day come to own a firemen-themed calendar.

My Summary:Stiles is a firemen and  Derek pines HARD. There may also be a kissing booth involved. There was one line in this fic that sold it for me, “How fast can he liquidate his assets?” It had me cacklig into my pillow, its funnier in context.

Reason For Call by 74days

Words: 58,995

AO3 Summary: Stiles has been working in his call-centre booth for nearly 5 years when he first hears the voice of the new IT guy. Surely anyone who sounds like that has got to be H.O.T
Stiles takes it upon himself to get to know him better. The only problem is, he’s got no idea what he looks like…
-
Prompted by Dyren: Derek and Stiles both work at a call centre together, and Derek is always being really shy…

My Summary: I was having a really bad week, and couldnt sleep one night and stayed up til 7am reading this. Its funny but keeps you on edge with the ooh what iss happening plot line. Stiles and Derek get together quite quickly actually and I panicked for the rest of the fic that they would break up, but its such a great fic, well written and the US at the beginning is written perfectly then the angst towards the end is just enough to make your heart clench but not make you weep.

'Linski's Late Night Antidote to Lame by WhoNatural

Words: 13,865

AO3 Summary:

Where Stiles has his own college radio show, and the mysterious, faceless Derek is his number one fan.

Also there’s this really hot guy he keeps meeting in the library who totally hates his guts.

My Summary: I HAVE INTENSE LOVE FOR THIS FIC OK I HAVE RE READ IT SO MANY TIMES SINCE IT WAS POSTED AND UGH LET ME TELL YOU A THING, Stiles has an idie-ish rock radio show and a boyband haircut. Hes totally falling in love with his favourite caller D. Meanwhile he keeps going to study in the library where he keeps bumping into a total angry hottie, who plays bass and has tattoos all over his arms. (yes you read that right, picture it, mmmm). Some misunderstanings, lots of texts and buckets of UST, plus a killer playlist, read this fic now!!

<3 hope you like them x

Summary:

There were no last words. No more pleas, no more screaming. Just the sound of Stiles squeezing the trigger, the explosion of a second shot rocketing out of the revolver, and the hunters bursting through the open doorway just in time to see the bullet slam squarely into the center of Derek’s chest.

anonymous asked:

7, 11, and 14:)

7. Talk about some dialogue you really liked

Gotta go with Clever Boy again. The phone calls between the kidnapped Stiles and his father are just heart wrenching and I’m the worst kind of masochist. 

11. What fics do you re-read the most often?

Saucery fics - anything by her is amazing. 

DILF by twentysomething - best AU ever.

Fireman Derek’s Crazy Pie by owlpostagain - I love the oblivious trope

Sweeter than cherry pie by stilesbansheequeen - I love fake relationship tropes but this one has the best twist.

14. Rec a fic, any fic

I’m going to rec a person instead ewebie - her fics are amazing - the amount of detail and energy and time put into each one is just absurd. My particular favourite - for obvious reasons - is The Captain’s Fall.

'Will To Follow Through' by Owlpostagain

(Fan Art by dhauber - art not associated with this story)

Will To Follow Through by owlpostagain

Official Summary: “It depends entirely on how you look at it, I guess,” Stiles shrugs. “On the one hand, instant healing and the apparently inherited ability to pull off leather at all times. On the other, serious attitude problems and a suspicious disappearance of eyebrows.” “Even Derek’s?” Danny snorts, “that’s a lot of eyebrow to lose.” “I know,” Stiles agrees. “You should see, it’s so weird. Every time I want to ask him where they go, except he’d totally eat my face off.” “There are worse ways to die.” (42,411 words)

My Take: Excellent - I liked this enough I’ve already re-read it.

This is pretty much the only Sterek story I’ve read that specifically, consciously addresses the transition from Stydia to Sterek. It’s canon compliant through Season 2, and it traces the evolution of all of Stiles’ personal relationships — as he and Scott drift apart, and he instead grows closer to Danny, Lydia and Derek — while the Alphas move into town.

What I liked:

  • Believability. The narrative and relationships unfold organically, in ways that make sense.
  • Lovely slow build between Derek and Stiles.
  • One of the only stories I’ve read that really delves into Stiles’ feelings for and relationship with Lydia as he develops new feelings for Derek.
  • I just really liked the interpersonal dynamics in this story. They were enjoyable, and just felt so real and believable, from the way Scott’s friendship with Stiles falters, to the way Stiles ends up as a go-between between Derek and Scott because the two are so mistrustful after the conclusion of Season 2, to the way he bonds with Danny and Lydia.
  • One of my favorite quotes in a fanfiction story, which I think perfectly captures the connection between Stiles and Derek, and what Stiles does for Derek:

“And Derek, whether he realizes that’s why he’s talking to you or not, really needs someone to look at him and see something more than a scared little boy pretending to be something he’s not and failing spectacularly at it.”

  • Relationships are at the center of the story. The alphas are present and involved, but very much C-level story, and I was okay with how it was handled. I really enjoyed how the story wasn’t just about Stiles and Derek, but had an ensemble feel to it, even though Stiles was the POV character.

Room for improvement:

  • I wish we’d had a bit of an epilogue to see where things went from there. (In other words, I wanted more!)

anonymous asked:

Do you know that fanfic where Derek's a hot fireman and Stiles is a freshman and lives with Scott in New York, Derek's sister owns a Cheeseburger restaurant and Stiles is her best customer? If so can I have a link?

Yes I do!! I was searching for this one aggggesss ago and it took me ages to find!

It’s called “Fireman Derek’s Crazy Pie [Cheeseburger Baby]" by owlpostagain.

"Stilinski’s Home for Wayward Werewolves"

byOwlPostAgain


"“At least your puppies knock first,” Stiles snorts. “Here I thought their alpha raised them to be well-mannered.” 

“There’s a sign,” Derek responds stiffly. 

Stiles, whose curiosity outweighs even his hardest of grudges, abandons his chilly façade of nonchalance in a heartbeat. He jumps right up and all but pushes Derek out of the way in his effort to get to the window, and sure enough when he leans outside there’s a laminated strip of cardstock duct taped to the vinyl siding: 

DON’T FORGET TO KNOCK Stiles gets cranky when we scare him-

'Stilinski's Home for Wayward Wolves' by Owlpostagain

Stilinski’s Home for Wayward Wolves by Owlpostagain

Official Summary: In which Stiles Stilinski moves to Beacon Hills for his junior year of high school and accidentally adopts a pack of teenage werewolves. (35,197 words)

My Take: Great - A fun fluff story that may be my new favorite rendition of PackMom!Stiles.

This is an AU-ish story where almost everything in the Teen Wolf canon remains unchanged except for the itsy-bitsy part where Stiles wasn’t present in Seasons 1 or 2, and instead moves to Beacon Hills prior to the start of Season 3. He quickly becomes a central component of the Hale Pack.

What I liked:

The fluff and the puppy piles. This is basically the ultimate Stiles-as-pack-mom story. Plus, there’s something just viscerally satisfying about Stiles (and the reader, through him) being at the heart and center of the pack. I mean, isn’t that idea appealing? To be the everyman who gets the hot (and otherwise unattainable) alpha, to be beloved by everyone, even acknowledged (even by Lydia!) as outranking everyone else.

Living vicariously through Stiles in this story is just plain fun.

Also, the author hit just about the perfect length. Much longer and the issues I mention below might have started getting on my nerves. Much shorter and I would have been left wanting more.

Mixed:

  • Maybe a little Mary Sue-ish? But then again, with a fluffy story like this, you’re kind of reading it FOR the Mary Sue aspects. It’s not so much about an idealized character as an idealized set of circumstances or relationships that, like a Calgon bubble bath, takes the reader away on a fantasy escape.
  • The author necessarily had to alter some characterizations and relationships/interpersonal dynamics to make the premise work. It works in that it creates an idealized Teen Wolf pack that I’d love to belong to. It doesn’t work in that many characters feel a little off, like they’re just game pieces in service of Stiles’ story.

Overall: this is a great read for fans of PackMom!Stiles or for anyone wanting a sweet, fluffy piece of Teen Wolf escapism.

pulchritudinousity asked:

So this is probs not what you're looking for on TMI Tuesday but it's no longer Tuesday for me! Anywho, I'm looking for a TW Sterek fic, where Stiles breaks apart from Scott and everybody and befriends Lydia and that group. They eat in diners before going out partying, and that's where he finds himself more often than not. And then Derek shows up and the whole group is like, 'Whoa you know Derek Hale? Tell us more.' Yes, it's vague, but I want it back and you know your stuff. Thanks, if you do!

I… That just sounds like it could be the plot of maybe ten different fics I’ve read, so I can’t help you, bb.  DDD:

But maybe someone else on my dash can.  

Anyone out there read that and instantly come up with a name of a fic?
