dove tree

There was something I missed
this morning
in the moments
when I first woke
before I opened my eyes
some line
some fragment of a poem
the window was cracked
I could hear
the rain pattering the roof
the wind sighing through the leaves
that mourning dove in the maple tree
who sings so sadly
all through the morning
and again at dusk
a train moaning some miles distant
and I thought of my childhood
waking early
how it sounded
something like this
and all the clever thoughts
fell out of my head
lost in a memory
the whole day
my whole life
a mystery
I had yet to

Chase Me by hexthejinx / 2097 w. / G

He snarls, baring his teeth in an obvious display of hostility. Now that he knows he’s dealing with another shapeshifter he can drop all the pretence of being a human. “A fox.” The way he utters the word makes it sound like an insult. In fact, it probably is. It’s not Derek himself who is prejudiced or spiteful, but his wolf. There’s an ancient voice deep inside his head, like an instinct, telling him that everything smelling of a fox or a coyote is an enemy and needs to be hunted down.

The guy isn’t moved in the slightest by Derek’s behavior. He keeps his cool, standing with his hands buried inside the pockets of his hoodie. “Youkai-kitsune, if you want to be specific.” That little smile is still on his face, and it drives Derek crazy.

**Chase Me Through The Trees, Mister Wolf by MissDizzyD / 2116 w. / G

Evenly Matched by alocalband / 3144 w. / M

Stiles gets turned into a fox. Somehow this impacts Derek’s life just as much as his own. (post 3b)

One Step Closer by Anrym / 3242 w. / T

The wolf was huge. His reddish fur and his and his big, snarling fangs gave him a very frightening look.Stiles was paralyzed. He watched as the wolf took a sniff at him and growled deep in his throat.He could definitely smell another Alpha on Stiles.

Seamless by iamfrenchy / 4201 w. / G

It feels odd, my bones when I’m away from him. It feels like my anxiety and ADHD gets worse when he isn’t close by and I can’t seem to understand why he makes me feel calm until I can feel him.

The Fox and the Alpha by InTheArmsofaThief / 5422 w. / T

It wasn’t everyday he was running for his life. Even rarer was this moment when a wolf jumped into his path. That definitely had never happened before.

Or the one where Stiles is Tod and Scott is Copper and they’re bestest friends forever even when a not-wolf comes between them.

A New Face, A Change of Pace by SterekoTypes / 5424 w. / G

Were-foxes are considered the lowest of the low. Hated by the majority of the were community, they are forced to live in poverty and suffer the worst society has to offer. For families that have were-fox children, they are treated with contempt and hatred. Many families have to give their children away, to wealthy people who can protect these weres. That was what Sheriff Stilinski had to do for his only son, Stiles. Stiles began to develop his were tendencies the summer before his senior year.

It wasn’t the werewolf. It was a wolf wolf. Legit, the largest, hugest wolf Stiles had ever seen in his life. Stiles dug his fingers into Scott’s skin as the wolf slipped down the ravine towards them. The bat was next to the fire, well out of reach, and Stiles didn’t have anything to defend himself with.

Work in Progress Fics (updated in 2015)

In The Woods Somewhere by WithMyTeeth (Ylith) / 12022 w. / E / Warning : WIP  + some Steter (mostly non-con)

Peter travels with various carnivals, showcasing a massive black wolf he parades as a man-eating beast. In his caravan he keeps Stiles, his most precious possession who is much more special than he may outwardly appear. Stiles feels a kinship with the creature through their mutual captivity, so when he makes his escape he frees the wolf as well. Like Stiles though, the wolf is also more than he appears.

Orange Greater Than Red by RoaringWolf75 / 13433 w. / E / Warning : WIP

Soon after Werewolves became known, they took over. The era of man died, and anew era was born. What is left of mankind now lives under the shadows of Werewolves; under the ruling royal family: the Hales.

Stiles is no one. He is a poor pickpocketing thief that lives in the Slums of the capital city, and hates Werewolves. He is happy to avoid and never see any Werewolf. That all changes when his best friend, Lydia, forces him to stand in front view of the monthly royal walk; to watch the royal family change into their wolves underneath the Full Moon.

The night grows worse when Stiles finds out something he wished was nothing more than a nightmare. In front of King Jace Hale and Prince Derek Hale, Stiles finds out he is something that was thought to have died off decades ago.

Stiles is a WereFox, the last WereFox in existence. WereFoxes are more powerful than Werewolves; Stiles is more powerful than his ruling king. But power is a dangerous game to play.

Call of the wild by Fox_Pause / 15701 w. / Not Rated / Warning : WIP

Running through the dense forest had been Stiles’ favorite thing to do ever since he was turned some time ago. He loves the way the wind rushes through his fur and he loves the feeling of his paws scraping against the ground. He just didn’t enjoy it so much when the hunters are hot on his tail.

Once possessed it never goes away. You end up with something from the exchange.

The Fox In The Woods by Maze (Events_Ending_In_Chaos) / 20291 w. / Not Rated / Warning : WIP

Derek finds a strange fox in the woods, he would have never thought how much it could change his life.

The Fox Who Ran With Wolves by AllTheseSquaresMakeACircle / 29928 w. / E / Warning : WIP

Stiles is something of an oddity. Not only is he a fox born to human parents, he’s a fox whose also an alpha. And that just didn’t happen. Foxes were supposed to be omegas. Potential mates for alphas and betas who would bear their children and bring balance to an alpha’s power. Only, much like the rest of Stiles’ life, things never seem to go quite as planned.

(Or the AU where as an evolutionary jump, humans began being born with animal features. Eyes, ears, tail, ect. These hybrids live alongside humans with relative peace. But much like any world, there are bound to be issues.

What Does the Fox Say? by sastielhugs / 31149 w. / M / Warning : WIP

Follow the story of werefox!Stiles trespassing the forbidden lands of the werewolves and meeting true alpha Derek Hale who’s still under the leading hand of his uncle, while Scott has his own pack in the other end of the woods. The creatures happen to have problems when someone or something is trying to take them down and blame them for the many murders in Beacon Hills during the summer. Even that can’t stop Stiles from finding new adventure and mate in the face of Derek Hale.

200 years ago, when Beacon Hills was just a village and controlled by humans, the area around was fought over by two different species – the werefoxes and the werewolves. Some died until the elders made a truce. The area was outlined with equal parts for the foxes and for the wolves. No one had the right to enter the other area without permission from the alpha Wolf or Alpha Fox. No one broke the rules in those 200 years…

Fox Tails and Nursing Majors by adult_disneyprincess (orphan_account) / 42908 w. / T / Warning : WIP

“Please don’t be a someone.” Derek begs every deity he knows while stepping out of the car, and his prayers are unanswered when he makes out the lean body of a boy.

Not What I Was Looking for, But Glad I Found it by ogeemattyb / 67497 w. / T / Warning : WIP

Stiles is a Fox Spirit, and his best friend was just turned into a werewolf. Life is going to get a whole lot more interesting around Beacon Hills now.


The one where Stiles was a Kitsune from the get go, and how that completely changed everything that happened.

Abandoned Fics but Awesome

And Stranger Things by Rosada / 2611 w. / T / Warning : probably abandoned + alternate universe Mononoke-hime | Princess Mononoke  

After a vicious attack on his village by the Emperor’s Hunters, Derek can feel the cursed bullet in his side sucking out his life. Yet he crawls forward to the only place that he knows he will not be followed–the Spirit Forest. He expects to die in peace there, beneath the trees, but perhaps the spirits are kinder than legends say.

A Fox in the Wolf House by little_red_stiles_hood / 2618 w. / G / Warning : probably abandoned + pre-slash

Foxes and wolves don’t mix, at least that is how it was before a pregnant fox trotted into the Hale’s den one midsummer afternoon.

The Alpha’s Fox by DaddyDylan / 2832 w. / E / Warning : probably abandoned

The leaves were muted and lifeless when the fox was given to him. It was tradition, he knew, for the coming of age Alpha to get a foxling from the rest of the forest—as a thank you for the protection the Alpha would surely give the rest of the forest from humans and other threats.

Or the one where werefox!Stiles is given to Derek for protection.

Being Found by IndigoWinterFandoms / 3514 w. / M / Warning : probably abandoned

A tale of adopted family, clumsy courtship, and two equally dorky idiots stumbling through their feelings.


An AU in which the Hale family never burned, Stiles is an orphaned werefox and found by the pack at a very young age, True Mates are a thing, and Kate Argent is still a fucking psycho.

What The Fox Said by Anrym / 4418 w. / M / Warning : probably abandoned

When Derek Hale returned to the Hale house for the first time after the fire, he never expected to find a fox living in his old bedroom, never mind a talking one.

(For Your Sake) I Hope Heaven and Hell are Really There by Bananafofo / 10780 w. / E / Warning : probably abandoned + pre-slash

Claudia Stilinski was one of the last of her kind. One of the foxes; the cunning tricksters that have outsmarted nearly every other nightmare from the beginning of time. Unfortuantely, they although they could outsmart, they could not outrun them, thus giving Claudia her status as one of the last, however not the very last. Her boy, Stiles as he liked to be called now, was one of them.

Multi-Shifter Fics

Originally posted by shinsong

Lions, and Tigers, and Bears, Oh my (god)! by day / 4253 w. / Not Rated / shifter stiles

Stiles moves into Beacon Hills when he’s 18. He doesn’t know about the werewolves or the town hunters or the crazy amount of supernatural shit that goes on, because if he did, he would have hightailed it the fuck out of there instead of buying a small apartment and actually settling down.

So when he catches the scent of wolves on his jog, he groans and fights the urge to fling himself to the concrete and throw a tantrum impressive enough to rival any and all five year olds. He settles for sitting down on the scorching concrete and cursing his life choices.

In which Stiles can shift into any animal he wants and somehow the pack doesn’t find out until Stiles’ ~dramatic~ reveal.

(I’m serious it’s dramatic)

He’s…something by countrygirlsfun / 11336 w. / G / shifter stiles

Stiles has to admit, keeping his secret under wraps is easier than he expected around his new-found werewolf friends.

Except for the Alpha that is never where he should be.
