blind pack

All stories are about wolves. All worth repeating, that is. Anything else is sentimental drivel…. Think about it. There’s escaping from the wolves, fighting the wolves, capturing the wolves, taming the wolves. Being thrown to the wolves, or throwing others to the wolves so the wolves will eat them instead of you. Running with the wolf pack. Turning into a wolf. Best of all, turning into the head wolf. No other decent stories exist.

Lucky Thirteen (Stiles/Derek)

This is written for the people who prompted me with this option off the Weirdly Specific AU prompts: “your friend set you up on a blind date and i happened to be eating alone so you thought you were meeting me and you were cute so i went along with it but you just got a text from said friend that they’re sorry your date stood you up and now i have some explaining to do” au for Stiles/Derek. I hope y'all enjoy!

Lucky Thirteen. Stiles/Derek. Teen.

Stiles isn’t expecting his thirteenth blind date to be so out of his league, but he can’t complain when Derek Hale turns out to be a gorgeous geek who could be the right man for him.

Blind dates are something the devil must have created to force people to go through hell on a daily basis. This is number thirteen in the last year, and, once again, Stiles swears it’s going to be the last one. He only ever manages to keep that vow for about a month before one of his friends wears him down by parading their happy relationships in front of him. Seeing them happy and doing couples things while he’s always the odd man out reminds him how lonely he gets, makes him think about sharing his life with someone, and his defenses crumble as he agrees to another blind date on the off chance that maybe there’ll be sparks this time. There never are, though.

I got Tick Tock!!

We also ran into a guy going through the blind packs, feeling out which one was which, for his wife who has “bad luck” finding the ones she wants. At first he was embarassed, and then I pointed out Series 5 was the one I was waiting on because of Tick Tock.

I thought I got King Louie as well, but it turns out I got Sully. Damn. So, lesson learned: it’s crazy easy to feel out which one is Barrel, but Sully’s door accessory feels roughly about the same as I believe Louie’s chair does broken down.

remember how pleased and utterly delighted trip was when he found out jemma had been undercover at hydra? 

imagine him now. imagine how proud he’d be of her now.


And here are the Free! -Eternal Summer- emoji stickers! As before, each individual sticker is about 1.25" wide. I’ll have the above DIY-cutting sticker sheets at ALA as will as some blind packs, which will contain one sticker of each character, pre-cut—but the expressions you’ll get is a mystery!
