Imagine a sterek Night in the Woods AU where Stiles comes back to Beacon Hills only to find that everything he had know is still the same and yet so different. Scott has a boyfriend - Isaac - and they’re saving up to leave Beacon Hills together, Derek won’t talk to him, and everyone is mad at him for dropping out of college but no one will ask him why he left.
But what’s more, there’s something strange about Beacon Hills, a foreboding sense of destruction and secrets. It all comes crashing down around Stiles when, one Halloween, he witnesses a kidnapping. He tries to report it, but no one believes him. The next day, Scott and Stiles are walking down the street when they find a severed arm on the sidewalk.
There’s something going on and the more Stiles tries to find out the more he realises that nightmares that haunt him and the mysteries of his town are all connected. And he’s at the centre of all of it.
