Stiles: I wrote 53 speeding tickets because my dad thinks it’s fun to put the rookies at the bottom of William’s Hill for easy tickets. Derek: I got 2 speeding tickets at William’s Hill. Stiles: *smirks* Huh what are the odds.
“How did you get past the wards?” Derek had put them up, with Peter’s grudging assistance, after the Alpha pack had made themselves at home a few times too many.
The guy pulled a face. “You mean the wards a five-year-old girl with the mental ability of a goldfish could deconstruct?” He blinked wide eyes at Derek. “Gee, I don’t know. It’s bound to go down as one of life’s great mysteries.”
And Derek just stood there, staring at Stiles like he was a ghost.
“Dude, I know it’s been a while but you don’t have to look at me like you’re that surprised I’m hung over in the woods. It’s practically a tradition at this point.”
“Stiles?” Derek whispered, the name falling from his lips like a punch to the gut. Stiles watched, confused, as Derek took a deep breath in and took a shaky step forward then back again. “You’re not- you can’t be. Who are you?”
A magical accident sends Stiles back in time. Now he’s stuck in New York, living with Derek and Laura, and the only way to get back to his own time is to learn to use magic. Meanwhile, he must figure out how much he can tell them about their future. Can he warn them about the dangers they face? Can he change his own past?
And can he trust the creature known as Bookworm, who seems to know him better than he knows himself?
"We’re happy to have you, Stiles,” Laura says, and nudges Derek hard, “Aren’t we?” “Of course,” Derek says through gritted teeth. When he looks at Stiles, the kid has a smug grin on his face. What a little shit.
AU where Stiles is sent to the Hale pack to be their emissary.
Do you remember when Scott thought that Derek died (s03e05) and he wasn’t able to heal because he felt guilty for his death?
Well, after Allison helps him to heal, one of the first things he says is: “Stiles, where’s Stiles?” even if there is no reason to believe he is in danger. It’s like Scott’s last promise to Derek was to keep Stiles safe.
I’ve always believed that (until season 4) it was Derek who acknowledged and understood his feelings for Stiles (Stiles was just…well…Stiles. Kinda lost in his Lydia world, wondering about his sexuality). Scott knew it though, like every body else in the pack, simply because Derek made it very clear to them:
But he tried so hard to keep him away. For so many reasons:
1) Stiles is a “child”
2) “I killed my first love”
3) “people I love die”
4) Trust issues
5) He knows and respects the feelings Stiles has for Lydia
“Sometimes the shape you take reflects the person that you are. Even Stiles calls her cold-blooded.”
6) He loves Stiles’ smile. And he knows how dangerous and painful a relationship with a werewolf can be.
But nobody can deny that Derek is totally in love with Stiles, because:
1) He makes him smile:
2) And makes him act like a baby (because he had to grow up so fast that he’s still a child in so many ways, SO BASICALLY WHAT STILES GIVES HIM IS WHAT HE NEVER HAD THE CHANCE TO HAVE):
(come on, Derek. No one believes you)
3) This little, defenceless human is a hero, a BAMF and he’s not afraid of him
4) this BAMF is kind and funny and brave and full of love
5) He dreams of him
6) no words needed
7) Derek kinda freaks out every time Stiles is in danger
8) COME ON THIS SCENE
And then, finally, it looks like Stiles understands something (and, yes, it looks like our ship is going to become canon)
BUT…Season 3B. Stiles literally loses his mind (STILES WHAT ARE YOU DOING)
While Derek’s still totally and madly in love with him:
And the Nogitsune knows it:
But then season 4 comes, and while Derek finds a distraction (okay, totally fair)…
…Malia decides that Stiles is her mate:
And then Stiles finally gets it:
Because when you’re losing someone…
…you understand how much that someone is important to you.
