Fav sterek fics?

I have 402 bookmarks on AO3, how do I choose favorites?! I guess I can try ; ; here’s my pathetic attempt at a sterek rec list (fics added as I find them in my bookmarks, not by favorites):

The Boy and the Beast by Dira Sudis (dsudis) [116k, M]

In which events in Beacon Hills go rather differently from the start, and a Beauty and the Beast (ish) story ensues. (Scott is not a teacup and no one sings about their feelings.)

Safety in Silence by Survivah [66k, M]

It’s perfectly understandable. Even Derek wouldn’t want to be Derek’s soulmate.

Easy Trouble by Survivah [55k, M]

Derek+Stiles+fairies = love spell

“Make love to me,” Derek demands.


Where The Inevitable Isn’t by Survivah [41, M]

Stiles has a magical thingamajig that’s supposed to get him out of danger. Trouble is, it took him really, really far out of danger. Like, to the point where he isn’t in the same universe anymore.

“A part of Stiles had been thinking that he’d come home, and just go, ‘hey, Derek, are we mates and you just haven’t said anything about it?’ and Derek would reply, ‘now you mention it, we are indeed! Now come to my bedchamber, where we will have super hot sex and then cuddle after!’”

A Simple Life by Survivah [13k, T]

Derek plans to spend the rest of his life holed up in the woods after Laura dies. Then he meets a stubborn young fox, and the stubborn young fox meets an urn of Deaton’s magic powder, and his plans change.

Hey do you have any slow build/long fic canon sterek? Thanks! x


I’m pretty bad about reading canon fics but try these ones and there are more canon fics here

Spark, Smolder, Catch by  qthelights | 18.3K

When Stiles starts pulling down Derek’s burnt-out house, Derek finds himself letting him. He doesn’t know why.

Wherein Stiles and Derek are both broken and doing more damage might just be what they both need to move on.

Caged By Frail and Fragile Bars by  publicspeaking | 16.5K

It’s hard to find your place in life when you’re only human and feel completely replaceable. Or, how Stiles finds out that while yes, he is completely human, he is irreplaceable.

And You Say You’re Alone by  taelynhawker | 30.3K

Between the kanima, the Argents, and Peter’s untimely return from the dead, everything has fallen apart. Stiles and Derek try to put their lives back together once the crisis has passed. Stiles deals with the aftermath of being tortured, and the distance growing between he and Scott. Derek attempts to become a stronger alpha and keep his pack safe, and that includes Stiles.

To Have Outlived the Night by  stillane | 23.4K

Derek steps away from the window. “You helped me. They took that as a declaration.”

we knew the hands of the devil by  grimm | 27.9K

Derek will never forget the sound Stiles makes when the alphas take him.

It’s small, so soft a human never would have caught it, but to Derek it’s as loud as cannon fire; a quick, panicked intake of air that’s not a shout, not a scream. It’s desperate and frightened and almost Derek’s name and it hurts him to the core. Derek roars as Kali lifts Stiles off the bed, the boy struggling against her hold like an oversized doll come to life. Derek fights against the twins, red mist boiling in his vision, fury and terror pumping through his veins.

“Say goodbye, Derek,” Kali says softly, triumphantly. “You’ll never see him again.”

Say Something | 49.7K

That first time Stiles decided it was probably wise to let sleeping werewolves lie.

Striking Matches by  castielblues, eeyore9990 | 14.9K

Stiles has only ever wanted to protect his family and his pack. That’s not easy to do when you’re human and sarcasm is your only defense. Now Deaton is telling Stiles he’s a spark, and if that’s a weapon in his arsenal, he’s sure as hell going to learn to use it.

All Stiles needs now, to complete his transformation into a true badass, is a training montage and a decent soundtrack…

The New Normal by  midnightcas | 63.3K

After Stiles gets hurt…again, Derek puts him on the metaphorical supernatural bench. Meanwhile, Stiles tries to have a normal life and make normal friends. But when a new pack comes to town and the Hales start getting threats, things start to get a little….not normal.

anonymous asked:

Could you make a rec list for fics where Stiles is insecure/has self esteem problems?

Can I make a list of this? Can I?? CaN I??? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

*Sobs into a pile of tissues*

A Night in Purgatory by Saucery

(1,633 Teen Complete I Episode 1x09)

Stiles has difficulty sleeping whilst in the company of a werewolf. Surprise!

Best Laid Plans of Wolves and Men by Jerakeen

(2,026 Teen Complete)

Maybe murder seems better to Derek than being Stiles Stilinski’s pretend boyfriend.

Finally Part of the Pack by Captainwhovian

(2,475 Teen Complete)

Stiles doesn’t think that he is really part of the pack so he starts to pull away from them, Derek, fed up with this confronts him. Kissing ensues.

A Question of Pack by CawCawMF

(5,290 Teen Complete Part One of this series, but the only fic to deal with Insecure!Stiles)

Stiles had always been sure of his place in the pack. That place being the absolute lowest tier in the hierarchy of werewolf pack dynamics, but he was sure of it all the same. He wasn’t necessary exactly, since just about anyone could conduct research on supernatural mythology, but his job was still important to the pack and he felt good about that. At least, that’s what he always thought. That all came crumbling down one sunny afternoon in the form of Jackson’s big mouth.

It’s A Funny Thing by marshmallowfluff

(8,047 Teen Complete Bullying/public shaming)

Stiles does not have many good experiences with people seeing him naked, because for some reason it seems like everyone thinks his junk is freaking hilarious. It hasn’t done wonders to his self-esteem.


Four times people laughed at a naked Stiles, and one time someone blushed and fell out of a window.

It’s All I Can Do by TonyStarkIsARobot

(8,418 Teen Complete Episode 2x04 Scene of drowning)

This is what happened the night the Kanima struck at the pool. This is why Stiles really held Derek up and this is what happened when Scott got there two minutes later than a good friend should have.

Based off the prompt: “Stiles shoves Derek to the top of the pool even as he’s drowning because Derek is worth so much more than Stiles could ever be.”

What’s Held on Our Shoulders by chameleonoverhere

(8,458 Explicit Complete)

Derek drops Stiles off at school, and this attracts the unwanted attention and harassment of some kid. He exploits Stiles’ greatest insecurity, has him asking questions about his relationship with Derek that he never had before.

Stars Are Falling All For Us Series by AlmostSilent

(total of 11,813 Teen WIP)

Stiles was feeling like such an idiot. God, everyone had warned him, they told him that Derek would get bored, that he’d find someone else. Stiles was just a distraction for Derek, just someone to fluff his ego and make him feel good until he was ready to find someone better, someone more permanent. It would’ve been less embarrassing if the whole pack hadn’t been warning him, if it wasn’t Lydia who finally got the proof and shattered his delusion with a series of incriminating picture messages. Less embarrassing, but probably no less painful.

My Inner Monologue is Oft External by fullarmorandahotfudgesundae

(13,267 Teen Complete)

“Hey, Dad,” Stiles grinned and gave a stupid little wave. “Welcome to the Wonderful World of Werewolves. Not to be confused with the Wonderful World of Disney. Although we do have faeries. And witches. But no mermaids, leprechauns, time travel, or body swapping. Well, not yet anyway.”

Everyone just looked at him. Which, not an unusual turn of events. Dad had that ‘why is that my son’ look and Derek actually facepalmed, which totally made Stiles’ night.

Dad turned to Derek, after his alpha managed to pry his face off his hands, and they shared a look of commiseration, which, hey, so not cool.

It’s hard to find your place in life when you’re only human and feel completely replaceable. Or, how Stiles finds out that while yes, he is completely human, he is irreplaceable.

The Roads Paved With Detours and Mishaps by Profficient_In_Feels

(21,077 Not Rated (Angsty Says: Teen) Complete Highschool AU with Teenage!Derek)

Stiles may or may not have a crush on one, Derek Hale but he’s not naive enough to think when Derek suddenly starts sitting next to him and giving him smiles, that he actually liked Stiles. No, he obviously wants something out of Stiles. Wants him to write an essay or do his homework. He’s not stupid, Derek doesn’t like him, right? Right?

all earz on me by theteapirate

(26,448 Explicit Complete Warning: Attempted Rape/Noncon Also has Stiles/OC and Stiles/Matt Daehler)

Stiles is a college radio DJ with a talent for pining and hooking up with douchebags. Derek is a college baseball player with a talent for eyebrows and misrepresenting himself. Neither boy is particularly talented at communication.

ALSO: If you don’t mind Steter, we also have a list with Insecure Stiles and Peter fics, which you can find here. 

Enjoy the tears,


anonymous asked:

hey there friend, do you have any sterek fics you've read and loved or even your faves?

Why hello! *raises teacup in greeting*

Yes, yes, I do. Prepare thyself. 

Personal favourites:

His Only Defence  

Stiles had just accidentally challenged an alpha.
Oh God and Scott had just stood by and let him do it. He was the worst best friend ever. Stiles was going to kill him. Except oh right the alpha was going to kill him first. Like beyond dead, ripped into tiny little pieces dead. So far dead that his dad would not be able to identify him, dead.

Lock All The Doors Behind You 

He has no idea what you’re supposed to say when you find one of your…werewolf acquaintances, completely out of their mind, growling like they’re about to see what your insides taste like. There’s no handbook for this. Stiles is thinking that if he survives he might write one.

Regarding the Epigenetic Effects of Kissing Werewolves 

Stiles’s mom had tried to tell him before she died. He should have listened.

Darling It Is No Joke  

The first thing Stiles thinks when he opens the door is that it’s not his birthday, but someone has sent him some kind of cop stripper.

My Heart Comes Tumbling Down 

“This is a casual, adult relationship based on sex, and it is awesome.” In which Stiles and Derek have a great time buddyfucking until a burrito ruins it all.

Professional Misconduct

Stiles gets a massage. And then some.

Alternatively: in which Stiles’ mouth gets him into trouble, again and again.

Hello, Heartbreaker 

It’s a popular joke among Alphas: fuck an Omega, get heartbreak on your hands. Omegas are fragile little emotional things, needy and whiny. Stilesrefuses to become that, or to believe that he’s anything like that.

Stiles and Derek have been fuckbuddies for a while when Derek loses his memories of the past three years - and them - in an accident. (Also - everyone’s a werewolf, and everyone’s alive.)

You Were a Kindness When I Was a Stranger  

“It’s not all handcuffs and spankings and learning to deep throat.” This is an AU with consensual BDSM sex acts, in which Derek supports Stiles financially in exchange for a sexual relationship. Stiles is of legal age.

But, Doctor! 

“We had to splint a girl’s leg in a ditch,” Scott says excitedly.

“Bro, you sound way too happy about that,” Stiles complains, opening up his bag and pulling out a Twinkie.

Derek removes it from his hand silently and replaces it with an apple. Stiles scowls at him for a second then bites into it, regardless. Derek sits back and lets the group discuss the merits of dramatic lifesaving feats for winning over the ladies. Scott is convinced it’ll help impress Allison; Isaac thinks Scott’s a loser. Stiles—

Stiles is falling asleep on Derek’s shoulder.

By Moon And Stars  

“Have you heard of this Alpha?” Stiles asks, shuffling up his pallet so Scott has room to sit. Scott does with a grateful little twist of his mouth. Stefan forces him into the Stilinski ceremonial armor when they travel and Stiles can see that it’s heavy and doesn’t sit well on Scott. He can’t shift encased in metal and Stefan knows it.

“I know of him, mostly stories that seem a little fantastical. Shifters exaggerate just like common people. They like their war stories.”

“Tell me of him. Tell me a war story.”

i wish i had a river

Derek is the editor of a successful publishing firm, and is horrible to all his employees, including Stiles. On Christmas Eve night, he gets visited by three spirits and has to take a look at his life.

aka A Sterek Christmas Carol

Move A Mountain

Stiles goes camping with his friends in New Mexico after graduation where they befriend a biker gang led by Derek: a guy whom Stiles can’t decide if he will be either relieved or devastated to never see again once their week is up.

A Simple Life

Derek plans to spend the rest of his life holed up in the woods after Laura dies. Then he meets a stubborn young fox, and the stubborn young fox meets an urn of Deaton’s magic powder, and his plans change.

waiting for you to say it first

Four months.

Four months they’ve managed to avoid one another. Stiles quit going to pack meetings. He quit doing research unless Scott really, really begged him to. He avoided driving the road that led out to the turnoff to the Hale house, he avoided going to all the spots where Derek might possibly be. Four months, and now, here they are, standing in the Minit Mart, Stiles thinks, staring down at the grimy tiles. He can hear the catch of Derek’s breath, and he closes his eyes and breathes deep.

Beauty and the Ex

Stiles doesn’t want to screw up his chances with Josh, so he does something he may regret: he goes to Derek Hale, Josh’s intimidating ex-boyfriend, for dating advice.

Things don’t go according to plan. But with a little magic (and werewolves) they might go all right.

The Wolf That Heard Crying 

There was someone in Derek’s house. He was on his way back from a hunt, licking blood from his muzzle when he heard the sound of smashing wood coming from inside. Derek snarled quietly, leaping up onto the back deck without a sound. He paused in the doorway to the living room, eyes burning red in the dim light. The boy whacking the wall with a moldy piece of timber was different than the ones who had come before. He wasn’t laughing, wasn’t enjoying himself as pieces of rotten flew from both the wall and the wood in his hands. He smelled of sadness and desperation and anger, and when the piece of wood in his hands finally splintered the boy sank to his knees and cried.

tie your napkin ‘round your neck, cherie 

Stiles has been a teapot for 3,308 days. // Scott skids into the door breathlessly and shouts, “THERE’S A GIRL IN THE CASTLE,” and promptly brains himself on one of the casserole dishes.

Of sharing shirts

Stiles borrows one of Derek’s shirts because he can, because likes the way it feels and smells. Derek likes the way Stiles smells when he wears it.


“We could…we could be something, couldn’t we?” Stiles murmurs, eyes slipping shut. Derek looks at the IV line in his arm, the bandages covering his chest, his leg. His hand, pale against the hospital sheets, palm up. Derek waits until he’s sure Stiles is asleep before he responds.

It takes Stiles eight years to ask the question again. It’s okay. Derek can wait.

An Alpha’s Mark 

Stiles never thought he’d get a tattoo — then he found out human pack members could grow stronger by taking an Alpha’s Mark.

Caged By Frail and Fragile Bars  

It’s hard to find your place in life when you’re only human and feel completely replaceable. Or, how Stiles finds out that while yes, he is completely human, he is irreplaceable.


Billy was Stiles second roommate, but he’s hardly worth mentioning because he was there less than four hours. Unfortunately for him, he moved in on Derek’s third visit to campus. It didn’t go well for either Billy or Stiles.

Stumble, Tumble, Fall 

Stiles and Parrish are friends. And then Derek and Parrish are friends, and Derek is buying furniture from IKEA and calling the Sheriff John, and that’s even more confusing.

Other Sterek Fic Recs here

I’ll Be the One You Won’t Forget by spiekiel

Derek answers the phone. “Argent,” he grumbles warningly.

“I know,” Allison says, “you have that whole rule about ‘no calling past ten o'clock unless someone is dead or dying’, but - ”

“What do you want?”

It sounds like Allison’s out somewhere, the beat of base-driven club music slamming in the background. “Someone tried to roofie the pack. We, uh - sort of lost Stiles.”

For Love is Not Ours to Command by weathervaanes

Where Derek’s skills at thinking on his feet mean that he and Stiles have to act. For the sake of Stiles’ dad, of course, for the sake of the pack. No personal interest interference at all, whatsoever. Right.


“Why does my dad say that you and your boyfriend are a bad influence on me?”


“Yeah, what boyfriend? Dude, you are not allowed to not tell me crap like this. You didn’t think I’d like be a douchebag or something. Right?”

“No, wait, what? I have no boyfriend.”

“He says you were with him at the police station.”

Stiles blinks. “Uhm. Oh shit.”

Kindred Spirits by Stoney

Anne of Green Gables/Teen Wolf AU. [ You do not have to know AoGG to follow this fic, it would only enhance the reading experience. :D ]
Essentially the world of Teen Wolf set in the late 1890s, with themes and some minor character names/places specifically borrowed from Anne’s world (and no disrespect meant to LM Montgomery, because I love Anne Shirley to bits and pieces.)

Stiles is the adopted son of the Sheriff, brought to Beacon Hills to hopefully stay for good. A family, a best friend, school, Jackson as Josie Pye (because who else could he be?) and the mystery of a dark haired, green-eyed boy which leads Stiles to discovering a secret within himself.

Beta’d by the incomparable Flaming Muse and Sheafrotherdon. Without them, this wouldn’t exist. All remaining errors are my own.

Sticks and Bones by kellifer_fic

Oh my God, they're adorable! Can we keep them like this?

The Division by traveller

They recruited him right out of high school. He doesn’t know why he accepted, he. He just did. Maybe because at eighteen he’d already seen more death than a lot of people did by eighty, and maybe this was a chance to get around it, get ahead of it, put an end to it. Some of it. Death itself can’t be stopped, not without something worse. Maybe he thought they’d show him how to be the something worse.

The Warrior and The Wolf by Sodafly

It is not the hunters that the supernatural residents of this city fear. Not hunters, but an avenger; a creature who takes the lives of those who fall prey to animal instinct and kill humans. They speak of black eyes, of a variety of weapons, of mountain ash and one claw like hand. Some have even gone as far as to say it’s like Little Red Riding Hood has taken the ears of the wolf she slays as a token, stitching them onto her hood.

Derek would normal dismiss these rumours, wave them off as an exaggerated fairy tale. That is, he would, if he hadn’t already seen it

(In which rogue hunter Stiles Stilinski teams up with lone werewolf Derek Hale to achieve a common goal)

Assistant to the Consulting Detectives by idyll

Stiles is going to NYU and ends up working for Sherlock and Joan.

Sanctuary Where I Stand by ceserabeau

“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.

Lucky That I’m Yours Every Day by stilinskisparkles

Derek doesn’t see how Valentine’s Day can get any better than a normal day with Stiles.

Caged By Frail and Fragile Bars by publicspeaking

It’s hard to find your place in life when you’re only human and feel completely replaceable. Or, how Stiles finds out that while yes, he is completely human, he is irreplaceable.

Some Nights by Hymn

Derek pisses Stiles off, and Stiles issues an “open-door policy” for the teenaged werewolves in his life. (Which is, really, more of an open-window policy, because seriously: werewolves) After that it is, like, all werewolf all the time.

As Nice As Your Butt by alocalband

When he comes across this particular hand-embroidered throw pillow, he doesn’t even think about it, just clicks “buy,” and then opens a new tab to google if cross-stitch porn is a thing. 

Love Always Wakes a Dragon by lycantrophies

“Yo, Derek!” Stiles hollers before Derek has even set one foot over the threshold of his apartment.

Derek scowls in confusion, closing the door behind himself before he steps into the living room where Stiles is sprawled haphazardly over his couch. There’s a book in his hand and he’s chewing on the cap of a marker, eyes flying stupidly fast over the lines. He doesn’t even look at Derek, like it’s not unusual that he’s here.

Prince and Pauper by dylanships

Medieval AU in which Stiles is a poor stableboy and Derek is the prince who feels smothered in the castle and often sneaks out to wander the streets and forest alone.
