The war between the fox and wolf clans has raged for centuries,
ignited in a time before anyone can remember. Now both clans—tired of
the bloodshed and hate—are searching for a way to end the war.
prince Stiles Stilinski—heir to the fox clan—has agreed with his father
to meet with the Hales, the ruling royal family over the wolf clan.
Under the counseling of the Druids, both clans are presented with a
solution to the war: unite the Stilinski and Hale clans through
marriage. To quell their people’s anger, both Stiles and Derek—eldest
living Hale Alpha—are urged to accept the other as an equal; as their
For the sake of their people, both houses make the ultimate
sacrifice by choosing duty over love. But, out of what was first assumed
to be compromised, quickly turns to be a better match than either could
have hoped for. But not all is easy for either clan, as some members
refuse to believe that the war could end so easily.
Living on the run might not have been the best way to survive, but when
you’re a Werefox with no family and no friends, what other choice do you
have? Narrowly escaping hunters, getting mixed up in a war with alphas,
Stiles is positive that life is out to get him. The weird vet is
convinced that Stiles will be able to help defeat the alphas and protect
the pack, but what can one injured Werefox do against a pack of
Hey, Carrie :) (reader of all sterek fics lol) I've recently had this really, really huge obsession with fox!stiles and its EATING MY LIFE (not that I'm complaining tho). And I saw that while you did have some small fic recs of Fox!stiles I couldn't actually find a list so do you think you could make one for me, please?
Adventures and Explorations by Survivah (M, 30k) Derek plans to spend the rest of his life holed up in the woods after Laura dies. Then he meets a stubborn young fox, and the stubborn young fox meets an urn of Deaton’s magic powder, and his plans change.
Evenly Matched by alocalband (M, 3k) Stiles gets turned into a fox. Apparently this impacts Derek’s life just as much as his own.
That Depends On How You Define Werewolf by jannonny (M, 17k) “I didn’t shoot him if that’s what you’re worried about,” said Stiles’ dad. Then he smiled wryly. “Though I did push him against the wall and threaten to strangle him with my bare hands.” Stiles gaped at his dad, because Derek…was Derek. And the Stilinski men weren’t exactly buff. They were built more slender and agile, though Stiles was still waiting for the agile part to kick in.
A (Sort Of) Fairytale by briecheesie, daunt (M, 26k) The summer after senior year starts normally enough, with the gang spending their final months before college together at the Martin family’s lake house. Then Jackson stumbles onto the burial ground of a witch’s ex-husband, Stiles is magically turned into a fox, and things somehow manage to get worse from there. The gratuitous Princess Bride references are only of moderate help.

Fox!Stiles whose kit keeps sneaking off to Wolf!Derek’s yard to play with his cub in their forms and neither one know.
Chase Me Through the Trees, Mister Wolf by MissDizzyD (T, 2k) Stiles was… happy. Really happy. Happy in a way that had the forest singing to him, urging him to go and play and frolic and let his fox have some fun for once.
Morning Fox by Kalira (T, 1k) Stiles comes for an early morning visit with his boyfriend.
June 7th-12th. More stuff for my “under construction” bootleg rec page. Had a rough time this week so i needed to roll myself around in some fur and fluff. a lot of these are re-reads but i could read these over and over again.
Ughhhh if you haven’t read this fic yet, stop what you’re doing and die from all the gorgeous painful cuteee:
Derek plans to spend the rest of his life holed up in the woods after Laura dies. Then he meets a stubborn young fox, and the stubborn young fox meets an urn of Deaton’s magic powder, and his plans change.
Ughhhh sooo vomiting teddy bear tails and sex kittens cuteee:
Derek gets turned into the angriest goldfish ever. Fortunately he’s saved from life at the pet store when Stiles takes him home. Unfortunately Stiles doesn’t realize he’s a fish. Stiles also masturbates a lot. It’s a problem.
Ughhhh sooo rabbits eat their own poop but no one holds that against them cuteee:
His hind paw catches on a rock and he goes down, crashing onto his stomach, the wind abruptly forced from his lungs. He tries to scramble to his feet – paws, whatever – but he can already sense a large figure hovering over him, trapping him in. He makes a break for it anyway, though, desperately trying to escape, but a large muzzle with rows of sharp teeth is already descending on him and –
– and Derek Hale is going to eat him to death. And not even in a sexy way. Then Derek finally will become a murderer, and his dad will have to identify his body by scraping bits of his rabbit intestines off of Derek’s wolf-y canines.
All because he didn’t warn his werewolf friends off from their usual late night hunts, because then he’d have to admit that he’s a fucking wererabbit.
Ughhhh sooo the most hilarious thing ever “squirrels with daddy issues,” everyone is a woodland creature, absolutely charming, a fricken disney cartoon, just readddd it, it’s gold cuteee:
It’s like this dog has walked out of all of Stiles’ childhood dreams and into the real world just because Stiles wanted it hard enough. He is the most awesome dog ever, and he and Stiles have abond. A deep, unbreakable bond because this animal is his soul mate, obviously. Now he just has to convince the dog of that.
I had a conversation one time (uh, five times) with drunktuesdays about Derek Hale being a cat, and we kept having to just stop talking because it was so true that we had nothing more to say. So here’s that fic!
Derek gets turned into a cat. Stiles learns to be a cat person.
Ughhhh sooo majestically adorable and painfully sweet cuteee:
Derek plans to spend the rest of his life holed up in the woods after Laura dies. Then he meets a stubborn young fox, and the stubborn young fox meets an urn of Deaton’s magic powder, and his plans change.
Set in a dystopian future in the year 250X, where everyone lives in large metropolises known as the Poleis. Each Poleis is controlled by the guilds and the gangs that dominate the seedy underworld. Derek is a member of the notorious Triskele gang, working as a drug runner for his ‘Uncle’ Peter, who is a pimp and a ganglord. After Derek brings in a stray werefox he found on the run from the police, his entire world begins to change.
Fox!Stiles. Living on the run might not have been the best way to survive, but when you’re a Werefox with no family and no friends, what other choice do you have? Narrowly escaping hunters, getting mixed up in a war with alphas, Stiles is positive that life is out to get him. The weird vet is convinced that Stiles will be able to help defeat the alphas and protect the pack, but what can one injured Werefox do against a pack of murdering alphas?
A very young fox!Stiles ends up lost in the woods of Beacon Hills where he’s watched by a slightly older Derek. Twelve years later, Stiles ends up back in those same woods for a completely different reason… but he still manages to find Derek.
Stiles’ mom was the only reason they were going to move to Beacon Hills and so when she turns up dead, a supposed “animal attack”, there’s nothing for them there. Stiles dad takes him to New York where he establishes himself as a PI of the Supernatural persuasion. Unable to let go of the circumstances of his mother’s death, Stiles does the best a kid can do pursuing the case against his father’s wishes.
Years pass until suddenly Stiles is orphaned at sixteen and on his way back to Beacon Hills, back to where it all seemed to have started.
Warm summer days are perfect for swimming in the lake, deep in the Beacon Hills Preserve. Afterwards, Stiles likes to dry his fur in the sun while he listens to the doves in the nearby trees, and feel the light breeze tickle his whiskers.

We’ve Written Volumes (in Blood and Scars and Ink): “Stiles is on his back on hard-packed dirt. He’s cold and there are leaves stuck to his neck and there’s a four inch gash in his side that he thinks he can feel his ribs through (..) And the worst of it is that he’s alone, totally alone with the smell of his own blood drowning him and the soft side of him run through by a tree. As his eyes slip shut, the last thing he thinks is, "This is going to kill my dad”. First time, H/C, 25935
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.

Nothing less: "Derek even does up Stiles’s seatbelt, which Stiles thinks he should comment on, because it’s not like he got hit with kanima juice or something. He’s fine.

Trust and other Catastrophes: "Stiles is sorry that he’s hurting Derek’s feelings and all, but his reasons for keeping Lydia’s secrets just jumped from gotta-have-integrity to gotta-keep-Lydia-from-getting-taken-out-by-ruthless-werewolves." NC-17, 22 120
That secret they all know: "Somewhere, somehow, along the line, Stiles went from being the human sidekick of his stupid beta, to someone he gives lifts to when there’s torrential rain, to being the one who sleeps beside him on the couch. And god help him, but, for some reason he REALLY can’t figure out - he doesn’t seem to be doing much to stop this from happening." R, 20 461

Strange to Know Nothing, Never to be Sure: ”Stiles finds himself working with Derek much more often than he’d like, or at least that’s what he tells himself.

Wash Me Clean:“Derek doesn’t know what the alpha pack is planning, so all he can do is keep watch on everyone they might target. Stiles is so not on board with that plan.

The gratuitous Princess Bride references are only of moderate help.“ Fox!Stiles, PG-13, 25 811
Wait ”Sitting on his couch, staring at the wall, it feels like Derek is watching his whole, miserable, lonely life flash before his eyes. He’s twenty four and he’s alone. No family, no friends, no real pack. (…) If Laura could see him right now, she would probably beat the crap of him and then tell him he’s a loser.“Kidfic, NC-17, 23 431
Diplomatic Tension: ”An old friend of Peter’s brings his pack to visit and Derek gets Scott and his friends to play happy-pack-families with him to keep up appearances. Also Derek is an idiot and no one tells Stiles anything.“Fake-relationship, NC-17, 10 869

Derek is reasonably sure that he’s not going to make it out of this weekend alive.“ Fake-relationship, NC-17, 27 067
Carry You Home: "Derek lets himself fall on his back, breath short, heart beating fast. He can feel the Wolf in him, purring in satisfaction and contentment. Asking for more. It wants him to turn and touch, to never stop touching. Instead, Derek squeezes his hands into fists and closes his eyes, trying to push it back, this need, this instinct screaming for his mate. For Stiles." Character-study:Derek, PG-13, 18 285
That Depends On How You Define Werewolf:”“I didn’t shoot him if that’s what you’re worried about,” said Stiles’ dad. Then he smiled wryly. “Though I did push him against the wall and threaten to strangle him with my bare hands.”. Stiles gaped at his dad, because Derek…was Derek.

Fly a Little Faster:”Everyone knows when you go back in time, you shouldn’t step on an ant, just in case you accidentally kill your own grandparent or something.

The Morning When It’s Clear: ”“She makes me have dinner with her and the Sheriff every week,” Derek admits. “She keeps saying I don’t eat well enough. Too much fast food, she says. I keep reminding her I’m a werewolf and then I get a lecture about cholesterol. That doesn’t even make sense.”" Future-fic, Character study:Derek, NC-17, 13 593
We knew the hands of the devil: “Derek will never forget the sound Stiles makes when the alphas take him. It’s small, so soft a human never would have caught it, but to Derek it’s as loud as cannon fire; a quick, panicked intake of air that’s not a shout, not a scream. It’s desperate and frightened and almost Derek’s name and it hurts him to the core (…)" Angst, NC-17, 27 929
Somebody That I Used to Know:”Stiles and Derek have been together for months. The trouble is, they weren’t yesterday.“ False Memories, PG-13, 10 379

(Fake) Winter Weather Brings Us Together : "So naked cuddling with Derek while suffering from hypothermia wasn’t really on Stiles’ to-do list for the week, but neither was that kiss—so who was Stiles to complain” Hypothermia, PG-13, 10 535
Fray: “Erica and Boyd are still missing; Scott is an inabsentia best friend; Stiles is rediscovering himself; and the alpha pack is lurking out of sight.

Hold the Door: “When Derek is killed by a rival alpha, the pack will stop at nothing to get him back. Even if that means blackmailing the most dangerous hunter duo this side of hell. Whatever. That whole devil thing was probably totally exaggerated, anyway" SPN-Crossover, PG-13, 16 700
One Day I’ll Accept Normalcy (But That Day Is Not Today):”“You know this still really weird, right?” Stiles asks around the toothpaste in his mouth. “What’s weird?” Derek asks. Stiles spits and rinses his mouth out. “The cuddling. The cuddling is weird. This-” Stiles says, holding up his toothbrush to the mirror. “-is weird. The fact that I have spare clothes here is weird.”" Established-relationship, NC-17, 15 954

Thank you Rose Tyler: ”Stiles accidentally manages to become Derek’s best friend through one texting mishap. It’s all fine, except for the part where Stiles is kind of hopelessly in love with his Alpha.“ Cutefic, NC-17, 16 853
“Stiles wasn’t really sure what was going on, but if he had to guess, he’d say Derek Hale was losing his touch. The amount of times he’d been called out with the guy, presumably to stake out some new supernatural baddie only to have it be a false alarm, was starting to inch into the double digits.”
In which Stiles and Derek are dating and everyone knows it. Except Stiles.
It was bad enough that Derek was so terrible at meeting people that he had to buy himself a mate, but it was even worse that his mother called a pack meeting about it. Laura was never, ever going to let him live this down.
“You—I—” Stiles splutters for a second, scrutinizing Derek’s face. He huffs in frustration. “I take it all back. You haven’t changed at all, you’re still acting like a petulant ten-year-old who unleashes his bad mood on others. You know, all Unleash the Derek style.”
“‘Unleash the Derek’?” Derek asks, dubiously.
“Yeah,” Stiles nods, gazing out the window again. “You know, the thing where you dump your bad mood on others, pour your suffocating attitude over everyone around you, twist everything that is said to you into some sort of—insult or whatever. It’s what I used to call it back in high school.”
“Sometimes I get the feeling you were dropped on your head an awful lot as a child,” Derek says appraisingly, eyebrows furrowed.
Stiles snorts. “Yeah, right back at you.”
Derek’s lips quirk in amusement, he arches his eyebrows. “I was, actually. But unlike you I regained full health.”
Wherein Hogwarts is a hotbed for teen romcoms where the surly hot guy is really a romantic dork who pines after the oblivious nerd who love getting into trouble. Oh and there are dragons. AND FEELINGS. And magic, but that’s really not important to the plot.
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.
All Derek wanted was for the woman to leave him alone and ring up his groceries. How that led to her thinking Stiles is his boyfriend is something he blames on Stiles and his inability to stay out of trouble for five minutes.
When Derek is killed by a rival alpha, the pack will stop at nothing to get him back. Even if that means blackmailing the most dangerous hunter duo this side of hell. Whatever. That whole devil thing was probably totally exaggerated, anyway.
“But the moon rose, like it always did, and he felt lost beneath the pull of it. He ran faster, harder, further away from home. He hunted larger game, took it down more ruthlessly. He reveled in the taste of blood filling his mouth. But when the blood lust had passed, he still felt thin and unmoored. He’d drop where he stood, dizzy and sick to his stomach. He’d whine for an Alpha. For his Alpha.”
Derek’s an Omega now. After a while, it starts to get to him.
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
Or, in which Stiles Stilinski moves to Beacon Hills for his junior year of high school and accidentally adopts a pack of teenage werewolves.
Had to stop there because I could literally go on for ages. At first I was only gonna do 7. You can see how that turned out. Most of these are pretty long-ish length-wise because I’m a really fast reader and therefore tend to go for long fics. If you’ve already read Sterek fics before you may have probably read a buncha these already. If not, then go forth and prosper!
