It was February 28, 2013, and I had fallen behind on Homestuck for several months. I decided I wanted to catch up.
My family was having especially bad luck with home maintenance that day, as both the lone electrical outlet in my basement bedroom and the furnace for our central heating had broken at the same time.
There was no point in hanging out in my room without power or heat, so I went up to the family room, where I parked myself under a couch, piled on several blankets.
And I read Homestuck for 12 hours straight.
I mean, like, I took breaks for food and the bathroom and stuff of course, but I had no desire to do anything “productive”. I parked my ass on that couch and indulged in homestuckery from 10 PM to 10 AM.
On May 26, 2012, 18-year-old Eero Hiltunen positioned himself on a low-rise roof with his father’s bolt-action hunting rifle, along with another rifle, shortly before 2 A.M. and began shooting at patrons at a restaurant across the street who were sitting outside in Hyvinkaa, Finland. He fatally shot two people and seriously injured eight others. Eero was apprehended a little over five hours after the shooting when he was spotted on the street, and he surrendered peacefully. He was found guilty on two counts of murder and seven attempted murder charges, for which he received life imprisonment on February 28, 2013.
Increasingly sensitive to the trauma heaped on Derek in his youth - frequently mentioned or added to in the show, but never directly addressed - fans began to spin new tales of his process of recovery and self-healing. Fandom’s Derek Hale learned how to trust, how to love, and how to ask for what he needed, even if it went against what he thought others wanted from him.
Stiles has simple goals in life. To successfully complete his secret radar project without getting fired, to get a cottage on the Moon, and to untangle his mess of feelings for Moon Station 3 deputy, Derek Hale. Heck, he’ll even settle for two of the three.

“Hey, Scott, so, I uh, there’s this amazingly hot guy and I’m uh, gonna spend the weekend with him but, you know, just to be careful, I’m sending you his picture, so if by some terrible chance my bloated corpse shows up sometime Monday, just, y’know pass this along to the authorities.” He pauses. “Uh. Kidding?” and then hangs up with a rush of air.“That is the worst voicemail in the history of voicemails,” Derek says.
In which Derek has been invited to the Greater Pacific Northwest Alpha Symposium (that’s not what it’s called, Stiles, stop saying that), and showing up unattached would mean an arranged marriage. When the rest of the pack objects, he agrees to let Stiles come along to pose as his mate. Derek is reasonably sure that he’s not going to make it out of this weekend alive.
Uncle Peter’s spent years regaling Derek with tales of his time as President of the Alphas. Derek’s paid close attention, because Peter’s stint as President is a pretty comprehensive guide on ‘How to Successfully Run a Fraternity into the Ground,’ so Derek plans to do the opposite of what Peter did.***A Derek POV to There is a Brotherhood. In which Derek’s life is hard.
