Summary: “You never graduated,” Stiles says, just to say it. To test it out in the open air. That’s… huh.
Stiles spends his senior year battling troll-gremlins, taking on an unexpected tutoring job, and definitely not falling for a certain sourwolf (even though everyone else seems to think he is).

Notes: Derek never graduated and Stiles helps him get a GED so he can get a job as a deputy. It’s just really fluffy and it’s one of those fics that just give you butterflies in your stomach. -C
“You never graduated,” Stiles says, just to say it. To test it out in the open air. That’s… huh.
He’s kind of surprised he’s so surprised by that, honestly. Derek had been homeless when he’d met him, then had spent way too many months seeming content to squat in a train car with a bunch of troubled teenagers. Nothing about that exactly screamed that he’d been pursuing academic success in New York beforehand.
“Tell your dad thanks,” Derek says again, and his tone is flawlessly polite, eyes focused on the trees around them for the not-a-gremlin.
Stiles finds himself falling behind, staring at Derek’s tensed shoulders through the darkness.
