Teen Wolf: fic favourites #2
Reader discretion required. Part one is here! [I refuse to apologise for how many Danny fics I end up reccing. He’s just amazing, okay? Multiple entries by entanglednow because it’s really hard to find just one favourite there. Warnings for drug use, cracky scenarios and angst in these.]
He’s carefully balancing the sandwiches and the two biggest tupperware containers he could find that both had functioning lids when the front door opens and he almost drops everything right there in front of the stupid fountain.
If that’s Derek Hale, he’s definitely not a mountain man.
How Stiles spent his summer vacation.
Danny is not anybody’s gay yoda. He’d like to make that much clear.
Stiles’ home economics teacher forces him to knit mittens. Nobody wants Stiles’ mittens, but then Stiles offers them to Derek, and Stiles is pretty sure Derek does these things purely to drive him crazy. What else could it be?
Someone has deleted half the numbers in Stiles’s phone.
Scott’s supposed to meet him after his shift at the vets so they can study together. [sequel to Echoes]
Stiles never really expected to be a criminal piloting his way across the ‘Verse, but hey, what did that tell you about life? A whole stinkin’ lot, in fact.
“Mistletoe was often considered a pest that kills trees and devalues natural habitats, but was recently recognized as an ecological keystone species, an organism that has a disproportionately pervasive influence over its community. In Norse myth, an arrow made of mistletoe was the only thing that was able to kill the god Balder. The goddess Frigg had asked all other things to vow not to hurt Balder, but she had ignored the mistletoe because it seemed too small to be dangerous.”
Derek is a glassblower on the hunt for new ideas. His assistant Scott has some artist friend named Stiles.
Danny is bruised. Their werewolf drama has officially bruised Danny. This is the worst day ever.
“Oh my God, Scott put soy in the cart, he put fake meat in the cart, he’s trying to kill us all.”
Not everyone can be the hero of their own story.
teen wolf fic rec list masterpost
endeeringly asked for teen wolf fic recs, and because i love rec lists and i’ve got about a million of them saved, i figured i should put them all together in one place. these are mostly derek/stiles, but there are some that have other pairings as well.
lists are from:
mccallmemaybe (all aus)
-wondersmith (canon, aus, and podfics)
sleepalldayplayallnight (mostly smut)
orange-8-hands (all sorts of categories)
sordidcrayons (multiple fandoms, including teen wolf)
fuckyeah-slash-recs (teen wolf tag, multiple pairings/characters)
alphabetised list on gdocs
qhuinn (bottom!derek masterlist)
heyysourwolf (sterek rec lists by type/kink/etc.)
sourwolf (sterek for beginners)
there are a lot of fics that turn up on several of these lists, but there’s a lot of diversity, too, so there’s plenty of awesome stuff to check out :D
i also have a lot of my own favourites up on my pinboard, which gets updated fairly regularly.
if anyone else has rec lists to add to this post, let me know!
Teen Wolf: fic favourites
Just a little collection of fics - some of which are very, very long - that Ko enjoys best. The last one is more of a guilty pleasure one, because I know some people will get as much as a kick out of Austen being quoted as I do. The first six are definitely absolutely favourites; the last are all great regardless. Reader discretion advised.
In which Derek drives a tow truck and Stiles is the weekend dispatcher who attempts to woo him with his lack of a brain-to-mouth filter and affinity for run-on sentences.
When Scott ditches Stiles for Allison and the rest of the pack goes back to ignoring him as usual, Stiles decides to get a dog. A cat wouldn’t get along with the pack, but a puppy would have to, right? …Or not. Most definitely not. Who knew?
The Pack, after college, graduate school and the starting of careers, comes back to Beacon Hills. Nothing’s gotten less complicated after all this time.
Or, that one time I read this fantastic post and then wrote a bunch of Danny-as-a-yoga-instructor/Stiles-as-his-stressed-out-client fic? Well, some of it’s fic, anyway.
When Derek finally realizes that there’s nothing left for him in Beacon Hills, he goes back to New York, gets a life, falls in love and finds his home.
“Do you know what just happened?” Peter asked, frowning. “Do you know what Derek did?”
“He dislocated my shoulder,” Stiles snapped, but Peter just arched an eyebrow, unimpressed by that answer.
When Stiles goes to college, for some reason, he has to share an apartment with Derek, which sucks, because Derek still hates him the most. They fall in love.
Back when Stiles was in high school Beacon Hills didn’t have a crime lab, because they simply didn’t need one. Those were the days.
Derek is not stupid. He gets why Stiles puts up with him.
The first thing Stiles thinks when he opens the door is that it’s not his birthday, but someone has sent him some kind of cop stripper.
“Scott told me you think your roommate is one of us,” Derek says when Stiles picks up, instead of ‘hello, Stiles’ or ‘how are you, Stiles’ or ‘how is the scary world of university treating you, Stiles’ like a normal person.
“Yeah,” Stiles says. “It’s so great to hear your voice, Derek. I’ve missed you so much. Nothing is the same without you.”
As the alpha, Derek shouldn’t want to submit to anybody. He pretends he doesn’t know what it means, then, when he can’t stop thinking about Stiles taking whatever he wants.
Derek strolls into his latest “gig” ready to bring the house down—what he doesn’t expect is, well, Stiles.
Stiles and Derek have phone-sex while Stiles is away at college.
Derek glares at him, growling, an inch from his face and he seems to be waiting for Stiles to break the silence. So he squeaks, “I brought pie.”
TEEN WOLF FIC REC
TEEN WOLF FIC REC
CHARACTER AU FICS
- DISCOVERY CHANNEL SERIES: Stiles is the best werewolf ever. Fork in the road AU. #werewolf!Stiles, #sterek, #danny/stiles
FIREMAN DEREK’S CRAZY PIE : “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. #alive-Laura, #fireman Derek
- ADORE TO SEE YOUR EYES FLY: Stiles is a pyromaniac, Derek is a sociopath. a match made in some kind of heaven. teen wolf kink meme fill. #school au. Podfic
- HEADLONG (I’M FALLING IN A): Kink meme fill: When Stiles goes to college, for some reason, he has to share an apartment with Derek, which sucks, because Derek still hates him the most. They fall in love. #college. Podfic
- ALL YOU’RE GIVING ME IS FRICTION: Where Stiles is an alpha-bait (nip). Podfic
HE’S NOT MINE: Derek comes home to find an abandoned werebaby on his front porch and Stiles volunteers to help him out. Surprisingly, that is just the beginning of his problems. # kid-fic.
BY THE HOUR: The one where Stiles thought Derek was a hooker who needed feeding, and Derek thought Stiles was interested in him. #werewolf!Derek, #misunderstandings, #AU, #Laura alive, #hilarious.
THINGS TO DO ON THE DATES YOU AREN’T HAVING: “So are we dating now or what?” Stiles asks the third time he finds himself doing the obligatory postcoital cuddling with a certain sour wolf.
- BESIDE YOU: Filled for the prompt: Derek is a single dad, and Stiles is either a kindergarten teacher or an au pair/nanny hired to take care of Derek’s kid. They fall in love. Werewolves optional.
- I CAN SMELL IT ON YOUR SKIN (I BET I CAN TASTE IT IN YOUR BLOOD): Stiles’ cover is blown the day Derek gets hit by Allison’s arrow. #misunderstanding, #bond.Podfic
- AND DWELL BENEATH MY SHADOWS: Derek is not stupid. He gets why Stiles puts up with him. It’s clear every time Stiles looks at him, the spicy scent of lust and arousal Stiles’s body can’t help but put off. It doesn’t surprise him. Not at all. Derek knows what he looks like, knows that his face and his body are more than enough to compensate for his shitty personality. Stiles wants him more than he is annoyed by him. Nothing more, nothing less. It’s not anything to be amazed over, nothing to write home about. Stiles isn’t the first— and most likely won’t be the last— hormone soaked teen who has panted over Derek. #insecure Derek #emotional constipation #misunderstanding
- I WANT YOUR LIPS TO SING: ”But for some reason, when Stiles sees Derek talking to Lydia, the two of them painfully good-looking, all she can think about is that her hair is in a messy ponytail and there’s pizza sauce on the hem of her t-shirt. It’s not like she wants to go on a montage out of a ’90s teen film and come out like Rachel Leigh Cook on a staircase, but Stiles maybe thinks she doesn’t want to look like the homeless one in the pack.” #fem!stiles Podfic
- YOU’RE LOSING SLEEP TONIGHT:Sequel to “I want your lips to sing”. #fem!stiles. Podfic
- DARLING IT IS NO JOKE: The first thing Stiles thinks when he opens the door is that it’s not his birthday, but someone has sent him some kind of cop stripper. Or where Derek is a cop and Stiles is still the Sheriff’s son. #age-difference. Podfic
- CAUSE OF DEATH: It turns out that although Stiles may be the one who’s been caught wearing panties, he isn’t the only one with an awkward boner, and that makes him feel a whole lot better about this situation. #crossdressing #kink. Podfic
- WINDOW SNEAK: Derek likes when Stiles is covered with his scent. So he likes to rub himself on Stiles and cuddle with him to get maximum coverage. Stiles thinks Derek is just a big, softie cuddleslut, but Derek is really marking Stiles as his territory. #scenting.Podfic
- LIKE A MELODY (IT WON’T LEAVE MY HEAD): Stiles doesn’t notice the constant buzzing in his head until it’s gone. #special-bond, #soulbond. Podfic
- LOCK ALL THE DOORS BEHIND YOU: He has no idea what you’re supposed to say when you find one of your…werewolf acquaintances, completely out of their mind, growling like they’re about to see what your insides taste like. There’s no handbook for this. Stiles is thinking that if he survives he might write one. #special-bond. Podfic
AIN’T NOTHING SO GOOD AS THE CAKE AND EATING IT: Derek thinks he’s doing alright in life, with his family at his side and a job he loves. Despite his family’s concerns he remains adamant that he doesn’t need a mate, afraid to take the risk of letting anyone close enough to try to hurt his family again. That is until he realizes that his true mate has been right under his nose for years, and that now through his inaction he may lose him.
- WHITE NOISE: Stiles likes Derek, but Derek doesn’t feel the same way…or does he? #bond, #pining, #possessive.
WALK ME DOWN YOUR BROKEN LINE: The kissing. That’s important, very important. Not that the homicidal lycanthrope dragging him through dirt and fallen leaves isn’t important, but the kiss that follows? The path to this monumental push of lips on lips began even before this ill-fated venture to the Hale house.
TRUST FALL: Where Stiles swaps bodies with Derek. #body-swapping, #canon au, #developing relationship.
MY LIGHT IS ON YOUR SCREEN: Derek might have to apologize later #crossdressing.
the sterek primer
bloo bloo bloo here are a bunch of amazing sterek fic recs so i get over my moodiness about fandom & start loving it again (ps anyone who actually reads sterek fic has probably read all of these, I’M A BABY OK & good fic is hard to find, think of this as a sterek primer):
Fic Rec: Peripeteia
Stiles wakes up on the side of the road with asphalt embedded in his right cheek and the taste of copper in his mouth. His first thought is, where is Scott?
Because out of everyone, Scott is the most likely person to have been involved in whatever got him here. Or, rather, he is most likely to have brought along Scott if whatever it was was his idea. Derek, Erika, Allison—even Jackson might have started to become staples, but no one beats Scott for a stupid idea.
omg this fic is amazing. It’s a Stiles-wakes-up-to-find-the-Hales-alive fic. All the voices are spot on, the characterization is incredible. It does a really great job of including all the characters, too. It seriously feels like it could be a missing season of Teen Wolf. It’s also an incredible Stiles character study. GO READ IT HERE.
Really amazing Derek/Lydia fic. Why it has only one comment, I’ll never understand. Awesome fic - and has some lovely meta in it about Derek, Lydia and Derek/Lydia. Reeead it.
Such Great Heights
Fandom: Teen Wolf
Summary: It’s about power, it’s about control, it’s about giving and taking. They balance.
Warnings: Not particularly explicit sex. Set post-high school graduation.
big ass teen wolf fic rec post
So I started consuming Teen Wolf fic a while back and thought I should make a list of my favourites so I’d actually remember to go back and leave comments (that will still happen), and then surexit asked for recs so I combined the two and hope someone else will find it helpful.
This is mostly Stiles/Derek - much as I love the pairing, I have to say there is a sad lack of other pairings/gen fic in this fandom so far. No WIPs.
pst. rec me some sterek fics... you've created a monster
AHAHAHAHA. I’M SORRY I’M NOT SORRY.
First, I shall just give you my delicious teen wolf fanfic tag (it is VERY delicious HAR HAR): http://delicious.com/mitsubachi/teen_wolf+fanfic
But since that is possibly a bit daunting, since I’ve read, like, a billion teen wolf fics (seriously, a lot), here are some of my absolute favorites:
http://archiveofourown.org/works/399194 - AU future fic where Derek’s family didn’t die and he’s a cop. It’s so good for me. And will be for you, too. It may actually be my favorite fic in the fandom. Maybe. I have a lot.
http://archiveofourown.org/works/390961/chapters/641512 - Um, okay. So…be sure to read the summary before you read this because…yeah. It’s super amazing, but like, it’s also and au where everyone is a werewolf and there is werewolf heat week. So like pretty tame for me, but I don’t know about other, less, err, seasoned (as my sister says) people. But you’re pretty hardy. You’re a well-traveled fandomer, I’d say, so I’m recommending it.
http://archiveofourown.org/series/11655 - Nightmare Before Christmas AU - So amazing omg. No, seriously. I promise.
http://archiveofourown.org/works/344484 - Summary: “In a world where Derek lets Scott kill the Alpha and get the cure, he has to figure out how to rebuild his life, with help from Stiles.” GUH. SO GOOD. All the feels.
http://archiveofourown.org/works/310586/chapters/497361 - Set directly after the end of the first season. SUPER DUPER ADORABLE AND AMAZEBALLS.
http://archiveofourown.org/works/370611 - Stargate Atlantis AU that you should read even if you haven’t watched a single episode of SGA
If you want short, but super hot and/or adorable fics (kekeke…):
http://archiveofourown.org/works/369598 - and the other ones by this author
Basically everything by Swing Set in December (http://archiveofourown.org/users/swing_set13/pseuds/Swing%20Set%20in%20December) and Saucery (http://archiveofourown.org/users/Saucery/pseuds/Saucery)
Um…yeah. You’re welcome.

Title: Need Not Apply
Word Count: ~500?
Summary: Mr. Derek Hale,
I would like to officially submit myself for consideration as your mate within the Hale Pack of Beacon Hills, CA. While I am inexperienced in many areas the jobs description calls for, I strongly believe that I have the ability to turn that into an opportunity for growth and success for all parties, due to my eagerness to learn and immense flexibility.
Attached is my resume. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
Best, Stiles Stilinski
Why you should read this: Really, do I need to explain why?
