I never really paid attention to this when I was a kid reading these books. Looking back, however, this moment was quite significant.
The difference between Skulduggery and Kenspeckle.
This not only signified how they felt in the moment but their attitudes towards Valkyrie as a whole. Kenspeckle hated Skulduggery, not only because he didn’t trust him but how he constantly put Valkryie in danger. Also how Skulduggery seemed to forget that Valkyrie was only a kid. Skulduggery stepped back instead of immediately comforting her like Kenspeckle rushed to do so because he was shocked. Shocked at this display of weakness from her. She always acted tough etc, but like Kenspeckle tried to emphasise, it was so imperative for Skulduggery to remember she’s just a child. This was definitely a wake up call for Skulduggery.
You wake up slowly, eyes fluttering open as you yawn peacefully. Then you start to feel the pain, and you remember what happened.
Gordon and you were having date night at his house when all of a sudden the room exploded with bullets. Gordon tackled you to the ground to protect you from the bullets and glass coming from the window, and you blacked out when your head hit the floor. Which reminds you.
Eyes going wide, you start to panic, thrashing on the hospital bed and trying to stand. You have to find Gordon. You have to see if he’s all right.
“Hey,” a familiar voice says, and you look over to see your brother. “It’s okay, (y/n), you’re safe.”
You relax a little bit against the bed. “Derek?” You ask, “what are you-where’s Jim?”
“He’s recovering in the room over.”
“Is he all right?”
He sighs. “He was shot in the back twice, but yes, he’s going to be fine. His partner is briefing him right now.”
“Harvey,” you whisper before groaning and clutching your head. “What happened?”
Derek shakes his head, taking your hand. “That freak, Cobblepot, got some men together to shoot up Gordon’s apartment to kill him. You were knocked unconscious and Gordon was shot, like I told you.”
You study his face, seeing how his face hardens every time he talks about Gordon. “You know I love Jim, right?”
He sighs. “(Y/n)-”
“Derek, he took those bullets for me. The only reason I have a concussion is because my head hit the floor when he got me out of the line of fire. So, if you have a problem with him saving my life, again, I wouldn’t question him. I love him, and that should be enough for you.”
Hey love, I'm kinda in a weird, absent mood and I was wondering if you knew of any long fics that would just blow me away? Preferably with little or no angst,,, I know this is very vague and I'm sorry if you can't answer but thank you so much for your time ❤️💙❤️
I’m not sure about blowing you away, but these are some long fics that I really enjoyed. I hope you do too.
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?
Derek’s two friends share a look and even Boyd can’t muster up the strength to deal with his pathetic attempt at denial. “Come on now, Derek, seriously? We know about you and Stiles.”
“Yeah, we know you two are fuck buddies,” Erica adds with a smirk, and Derek buries his head in his hands.
“That’s not exactly the terminology I would use,” he murmurs, his whole face burning with embarrassment.
“How else would you describe having sex with your best friend who has no clue you’re in love with him?” Boyd asks, actually sounding curious about his answer.
Derek lifts his head, opens his mouth to reply, but only ends up making a few ridiculous noises that can’t pass for actual words. When Derek finally just throws his hands up in defeat, admitting, “Okay, fine, that’s exactly how you’d describe it,” Erica and Boyd shake their heads at him.
Or the one in which Derek and Stiles are childhood friends, their freshman year of high school Derek makes the craziest suggestion ever, and four years later Stiles decides to take him up on it.
Where Stiles is a librarian who is in charge of the kids’ reading hour and such. And Derek is 6-year-old Scott’s adoptive dad. And Stiles has his own take on Stories and Scott loves wolves and Derek tries not to admit that he likes the way Stiles’s face looks in those glasses. Or something like that.
There’s something weird about Beacon Hills that Stiles can’t quite put his finger on. The way everyone in town knows his name the day he arrives. The way they insist the melancholic howling that echoes through the forest every night is just a dog. The way his dad denies getting a dog, even though Stiles comes home to find one sprawled across his bed, some big black thing whose eyes gleam red in the right light. The way that massive oak tree out in the woods vibrates under his touch, pulsing with sickly life.
There’s something weird going on in this town, and Stiles is determined to get to the bottom of it.
Ten Lesser Known 20th Century Celebrities Involved with Murder
2. Jim Gordon
Former drummer for the band Derek and the Dominos, Jim Gordon led a life frenzied by drugs, cocaine bringing to light his temper on numerous occasions. Like the titular musical group, he continued falling down, knocking down those close to him. Former girlfriend Rita Coolidge was the real source behind the famous song “Layla,” and had been stolen from as well as punched by Gordon, perhaps saving her life as it ended their relationship. However, drugs were not the only force at work, a diagnosis of paranoid schizophrenia going unnoticed.
Voices filled an unstable mind, mostly the words spoken in the voice of his mother, Osa Marie, encouraging the musician to starve himself or resist sleep. Once bludgeoning the innocent elderly woman to death before fatally stabbing her, Gordon was sentenced to sixteen years in prison, unable to make parole even now because he believes his mother is still alive.
FUCKING HELL I JUST REALIZED THAT GORDON EDGLEY IS A SELF INSERT OF DEREK HIMSELF AND HOW GORDON WRITES HIS BOOKS STARTING WITH AN ARROGANT HERO AND THEN SUBJECTING THEM TO TERRIBLE THINGS UNTIL THE ARE HUMBLE IS FORESHADOWING WHAT HAPPENS TO SKULDUGGERY AND VALKYRIE
Hi! I came across your random sterek fic rec list a few days ago and there were a few fics on there I'd read but most I've never even heard of, so I saved it in my drafts and like every freaking fic on there is literally GOLD. I mean I read A LOT of fic and I've NEVER come across a list where I throughly enjoyed every single rec. It was like finding a treasure! So I was wondering if you possibly had any interest in making another one? Either way, thank you so much!
Hey there! Sorry for the late reply, I was at the beach for Carnival and I had no wifi or cell reception there. First of all, thank you so much for giving me feedback! I love reccing fics but I never get feedback so it’s good to know someone’s been enjoying them :) So I’ve no idea what you have or haven’t read yet, or what sort of fics you like, but here are some I’ve enjoyed thoroughly:
This fic rec contais 32 fics of varied lenghts, ratings & tropes. Hope you enjoy!
In order to keep the identity of the teacher he’s been seeing a secret, Derek’s been withdrawing from his pack and family. Cora, frustrated with his alienation and a little lonely, clings to the first nonjudgmental person who offers companionship – which happens to be that odd Muggleborn Revenclaw who’s always hanging around the Gryffindor common room.
She hasn’t befriended Stiles for Derek’s sake, but Derek just might reap the benefits anyway - if he pulls his head out of his ass and quit the stupid self-sacrificing act.

Derek is about to leave, content with the smell of blood as proof that the Fury is dead when he hears it.A heartbeat.It’s faint and uneven and even with its help, it takes Derek a full minute of scanning the clearing before he finally spots the small heap that must be the human. It’s down on the far side of the canyon, almost completely hidden by a tall oak tree and–Derek jumps down before he thinks about it.He knows what he has to do. Furies are dangerous. Furies are fire and smoke and a funeral he barely remembers. He lands almost silently and makes sure his hands are fully shifted into claws and then slowly moves forward.Or, a How to Train Your Dragon AU

//I’m so happy Steven is on this list (for me he is number one s2)
Do you know of any fics that are like the things that shitpostingsterek posts? Or maybe like truealqha's smooth stilinski series? If not then just some general sterek crack would be awesome! Love you guys!!!
The thing that Derek Hale hates the most about Stiles Stilinski, other than his penchant for being right and his ability to poke at buttons Derek didn’t even know he had…is the stupid fucking mole just above the crack of his ass.
“What are you doing, dude?! Turn back! You’re going to talk to him aren’t you?” Stiles’ dick strains to get try and look at hot guy, but to no avail. “Why are you putting me back into your undies? Why are you stuffing me in these jeans? Stiles, c’mon! Let’s go talk to hot guy, waaaaaait!”
or Stiles has a crush on the hot guy at the gym, but thinks the guy won’t like him because of his monster cock.
“Beacon County Sheriff’s Department, this is deputy Mahealani speaking.”
“Oh thank god!”
“I, uh, I need some advice.”
“Yeah. So, hypothetically, say you met your boyfriend’s mother and sister for the first time ever. Completely by accident. In the grocery store. And they convinced you to help them make a dinner to surprise aforementioned boyfriend when he got home after work. What would you do?”
Danny paused, and then, “Stiles, you don’t have a boyfriend.”
“That’s not the point! And I said hypothetically.”
“Stiles…what are you doing right now?”
Stiles never imagined he’d be in Derek’s kitchen cooking a surprise dinner with Derek’s family while they waited for Derek to get home from work.
Partly because their visit was a complete surprise.
But mostly because Stiles didn’t have a boyfriend.
Or even know who Derek was.
But he’d already come this far and Papa didn’t raise no quitter!
