Stiles and Derek end up drinking his dad’s last bottle of good red wine. Stiles mentions how he’s hidden the bottle from his dad to protect him from himself or something like that, but it all starts to blur together as he confesses his love for Derek. Derek is taken aback by the honest words but can’t find it in him to reciprocate them until he’s tucking a very drunk Stiles into bed. When the teen wakes in the morning, he’s not sure if the words he caught Derek saying before he fell asleep were real. Derek isn’t there and he tries to piece together their conversation.
Derek Hale is away on business when he meets Stiles, who is a student running away from college. He offers the young man a ride and then offers him two options when they get to the hotel: one queen bed or two.
Updated the high school fic list ‘cause high school au’s are the best! I know I say this a lot but 'Fly a Little Faster’ is AMAZING. If you haven’t checked it out. Go. Now. Also I think a mountain to climb should be on this list but… I haven’t finished it yet. Anyways, happy reading!
All Stiles wants from life is to
learn to control his magic, keep his grades up, and not die horribly while saving Beacon Hills from supernatural threats. It’s all going pretty well until Derek Hale, werewolf
extraordinaire, has to go and ask him on a date. That asshole.
Derek has spent his summer vacation crushing on the Sheriff’s son
Stiles Stilinski, mostly from afar, but then when school starts suddenly Stiles is sitting next to him in Chemistry and inviting him around to his place after school.
Derek’s not sure what gives but he’s certain that Laura’s behind it.
Being a teenager sucks. Being a werewolf
teenager sucks even more. With a life full of holding back who he really is, not having any privacy whatsoever, and the seemingly sudden appearance of one Stiles Stilinski,
Derek Hale’s life just got a whole lot harder.
Senior year is almost over, and all Stiles needs
to do is keep his head down to survive. A teacher calls in a favor, leaving him stuck tutoring Derek Hale, one of the most popular jocks in school and a member of a group of
douchecanoes who have bullied Stiles for years. He’s someone Stiles totally hates. Totally. Like, doesn’t like him even a little bit. DEFINITELY isn’t attracted to him.
Except that is a total lie. Fuck his life, seriously.
Stiles helps his father out with his private
investigation agency while trying to survive high school. But when murders that might be connected to the death of his best friend Laura start occurring, he is forced to team
up with her brother Derek to get to the bottom of it.
This is the moment he realizes he can never have Derek Hale – that
he was stupid to ever think he could. Maybe their moms made them hang out when they were little and maybe they’ve managed to get along these past few weeks, but they’re too
different. Derek’s cool, he plays a million sports, he drives a Camaro, he’s friends with Jackson. Stiles doesn’t fit into the equation and he never will.
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. But what happens when you go back in time and, uh,
accidentally interrupt the one event that apparently made the Grumpiest Alpha in Town into a ball of mindless manpain?
Well, if Marty McFly can do it, so can Stiles
Stilinski. All he has to do is get Derek and Paige to fall in love before he gets pulled back to his own time. And before he makes anything worse. That’s easy as pie, right?
Whatever Laura says, Derek doesn’t stalk Stiles. He doesn’t. Yes, his
sketchbook might contain studies of Stiles’ hands, the subtle muscle definition in his forearms, but that means nothing; he’s good at art, it’s life drawing, nothing else.
Derek has already typed the entire
report out and even got all of the stuff prepared for the poster that Stiles and him will have to present. Derek found that he actually didn’t mind doing all the work when it
was Stiles he was doing it for, but he wasn’t going to let Stiles get away completely. He was going to get Stiles to come over and help with the poster, so help him god.
It is the beginning of his Senior Year and Derek is so
ready for High School to just end already so he can get out of the stifling town. But his new fascination with one Stiles Stilinski makes him rethink everything about his
perfect life. The Hale family are total meddlers in said fascination and Stiles flails quite a lot.
Stiles and Derek are childhood
friends who drifted apart. When Stiles joins the lacrosse team against his will, the universe (with a little help from Laura and Lydia) chooses to push them back together.
He’s not dumb. Out of everyone in the
school, Derek is second in grades only to Lydia Martin, and the only reason Stiles is third is because he’s taking more APs than Derek, so his grades are suffering the
slightest bit. That’s why Derek knows, when Stiles arches an eyebrow at him, why what he said was so incredibly dumb.
Stiles didn’t break into Lydia Martin’s upstairs
bathroom to take a piss. He broke into Lydia Martin’s upstairs bathroom while Derek was in it, because—because of reasons.
“I need you to have sex with Derek Hale like yesterday,”
Lydia says, slamming her bag down on the table with more force than strictly necessary, mouth a tight line of displeasure. Stiles chokes on his boxed apple juice, sputtering,
“Say it louder,” Stiles hisses, leaning forward so they can talk in low tones. “I don’t think they heard you in the back.”
He’s sixteen and in the
woods on the wrong side of the town-line and he’s so fucking fucked.
He knows he’s not supposed to run, they teach that to you in preschool (don’t run from a Were, back away slowly and walk with care), but they never told you how it would feel,
standing alone in the dark with your heart beating in your throat as those glowing eyes tracked you from the shadows.
In which Derek is an adolescent werewolf with a
penchant for chocolate bunnies, and instead of the dream summer of lazing around the house playing video games and nibbling on his hoarded supply of easter candy his mother
makes him get a job.
In which Stiles is a showoff jock with a broken arm and an embarrassing crush who can no longer push the lawn mower around the yard.
A story in which Derek writes copious amounts of poetry, Stiles is very appreciative of said poetry as well as Derek’s smile, and all of their friends
are oddly and extremely invested in seeing these two get their act together.
Stiles and Derek have been close friends since the Hale siblings
moved in next door after their parents’ death. But Derek’s in the popular group, he’s a star baseball player, and he dates popular Pep Squad captain Jennifer Blake. Stiles
doesn’t have any of that, just his skateboard and a hopeless crush on Derek (oh yeah, and his Vote Lydia Martin Prom Queen button). As prom and the baseball state championship
grow closer, Stiles and Derek start rekindling their friendship.
“I would have to want to date Derek for your plan to work,” Stiles points
out, secure in the knowledge that his logic is infallible and yes, he’s had a pointless and soul- destroying crush on Derek for as long as he can remember but nobody knows
Talia Hale has a plan. Derek will go to
the Winter Formal and he will ask the Stilinski boy to dance, and they will finally get their heads out of their asses and her son will stop moping around the house in his
