Hi!! How are you, hope you're doing well. So, I have never read a Sterek fic before and I'm just now starting to get interested in reading one and I'm wondering if there are any must-read staple stories in this ship?? You seem like the right person to ask. Thanks :)
You came to the right person madam
- Nowhere Man by 1lostone. Explicit - 76k - MPREG - Before this fic I wouldn’t have touched mpreg with a ten foot pole. I was seriously skeptical about it but this fic totally changed my mind and now I’m a big fan of mpreg. (This fic hurts a lot, but in the very best way.)
- Dating Backwards by RemainNameless. Explicit - 85k - Porn Star AU - I put off reading this fic for the longest time but once I finally got around to it I couldn’t put it down. Both Stiles and Derek are pornstars, werewolves are known and Stiles is a bit of a werephobic (thats not a word) Derek never does scenes with humans, Stiles never does scenes with werewolves. Spoiler Alert: That changes.
- Pretty Melody by thepsychicclam. Explicit - 30k - Rockstar AU - I can promise you this, if you’re going to read ANY fic that I rec? You need to read this one. It’s honestly in my top 3 favorite fics. Stiles lives in NY working as a struggling artist and part time bartender, Derek happens upon the bar Stiles is working at and reveals that he’s a ‘rockstar’ now. I’d describe their relationship in this fic as “fuckbuddies who get their feelings all over each other until they fall in love.” Derek writes Stiles a song.
- Slow by JenNova. Explicit - 4k - PWP - I’m recing this simply because I’m a total SUCKER for porn with feelings. And god damn does the author pull that off well in this fic.
- This is Not Our Fate by KindreTurnany. Mature - 19k - Gladiator AU - There’s literally not enough words in the dictionary for me to describe just how much I love this fic. Stiles and Derek wake up in a barred cell and are then forced into an arena where another human and werewolf stand. They fight to the death, Stiles gets a badass reputation, the two of them develop an unhealthy codependency.
- A Simple Life by Survivah. Teen and Up Audiences - 13k - Fox!Stiles - Alright lemme tell you a thing, I /love/ this fic. I don’t care what anyone says about it. Stiles is originally a fox, Derek plans to stay a wolf after Laura dies. The two of them meet, and soon after Stiles meets an urn of Deaton’s magic powder which allows him to transform into a human.
- The Jelly to His Doughnut by blacktofade. Explicit - 27k - Ghost!Stiles - Derek moves into a house where a spastic, frustrating teenage ghost happens to be haunting. Hilarity and pain ensues.
- Around the Bend by lupinus, uraneia. Explicit - 14k - Stiles is a new yoga teacher at Derek’s families gym. “Stiles thinks Derek’s a repressed homophobe who hates Stiles for making him want the D. They fall in love.
we knew the hands of the devil by grimm. Explicit - 27k - THIS FIC REALLY HURTS. It hurts so so bad and it’ll make you cry (or at least it made me cry) but luckily there’s a happy ending. Stiles is taken from Derek and Derek stays in his wolf form for months and months after they’ve come to the conclusion that Stiles is probably dead.
DILF by twentysomething - Explicit - 30k - Daddy!Derek&Teacher!Stiles - I’m pretty this is THE Sterek fic, I haven’t talked to one person who HASN’T read it. Derek is a daddy to Scott and Jackson and Stiles is Scott’s teacher. They fall in love and my heart fills with happy puppy noises.
Prince Among Wolves by tylerfucklin (zimothy) - Explicit - 101K - Daddy!Derek&Nanny!Stiles - This fic is awesome, is really all I can say. It addresses gender issues and acceptance and learning to be a parent and I just - GAH I could read this fic over and over.
Lock All The Doors Behind You by entanglednow. Mature - 25k - Feral!Derek - Derek goes feral for unknown reasons and Stiles is appointed Derek-Duty since he’s the only one Derek won’t maul when they get to close.
Alpha Spikes by starbeast. Explicit - 62k - Alpha!Derek&Omega!Stiles - Sighs dreamily about this fic. “Alphas are like royalty and are offered their choice of any age eighteen-and-up virgin Omega for each year’s heat season, as a ‘thank-you’ to all they’ve done for their compounds throughout the year. Derek is an Alpha and…yeah, Stiles. Stiles is an Omega. And still a virgin. In every way. And he’s just turned eighteen. This…is not his day.”
There is a Brotherhood by minusoneday. Explicit - 21k - Prank wars! - This is one of the ONLY fics that I have re-read countless times. Stiles and Derek are in separate fraternities, the pledge brothers from each fraternity strike up a prank war.
I could probably go on forever, but these should keep you busy for the time being♥
