Imagine single dad!Derek coming back from Texas with a baby that has Hale features and darker skin - Braeden was killed when Aurora Laura (yes they named her that, stop laughing) was six months old. Rory is now almost four and showing signs of lyncanthropy so he decides to move to the somewhat stable Beacon Hills territory, thinking hey he knows the Alpha and they'll be safe. And it turns out that Stiles didn't go into law enforcement. He's the kindergarten teacher. -A
Better yet, kindergarten teacher who consults with law enforcement so he has a way of keeping track of everything in Beacon Hills (sorry, my mind went wild).
Single dad!Derek is one of my favourite AUs because Derek would be the best dad ever.
Imagine Derek named his daughter Aurora because she’s the light of his life and he hoped as a baby she would sleep through the night, both came true.
Imagine Scott asking why Derek came back to Beacon Hills and Derek introduces his baby to the pack - Stiles isn’t there; he’s at diner with his dad - and begs Scott to let them back into his territory so that his daughter is safe. Scott accepts them without hesitation and reminds Derek that it’s Hale territory too.
Imagine Aurora coming home from kindergarten and telling Derek that his teacher has a crush on him, “Stiles says you’re pretty” or “He really really likes you” or whatever compliment Stiles has muttered under his breath as he watched Derek’s fine ass walk away that day.
Imagine Stiles dropping Rory home when her dad has to work, fight off supernatural threats or deal with Peter - who Derek’s trying to keep out of Aurora’s life because she deserves better than to have a psychopath as an uncle and Derek is only willing to let him into her life when Peter proves himself.
Imagine Rory coming home and asking if Stiles can be her daddy. Derek feels like he’s been replaced but Rory explains she wants two daddies and Derek jokingly remarks, “That can be arranged.” However, the joke falls through when a week later he and Stiles go on a date and things develop from there.
(I’m very passionate about this now and I want so much more)
Derek Hale, mild mannered newspaper reporter by day, crime fighting super powered hero also by day! Wait what? Chiselled jaw, rock hard abs and the sweetest southern accent this side of a Kansas corn field. Who wouldn’t want to date this guy? Cue Stiles Stilinski, a pale sarcastic photographer for the same newspaper who catches Derek’s eye, but is that all he is? Is their love even real? Stiles himself is starting to question these things. What does a superhero and a hired mercenary have in common? An alter ego wearing black framed glasses.

Summary: As soon as you’re of age, you’re given necklace just like everyone else. This necklace burns hot whenever your soulmate is near and cold whenever they’re gone. While everyone around you is excited to meet their true love, you on the other hand choose to distance yourself from it all for as long as you can. That is until a new student arrives on campus.
Ever since I can remember, my mother has always been concerned about this thing dangling around my neck. The necklace we receive at birth is of “great importance”. It’s supposed to burn and glow in the presence of your soulmate and grow colder when they’re away. It’s like a game of hot and cold: soulmate edition. I never paid much attention to it since I hardly gave much thought to it. It was just a simple half circle hanging from a chain. My whole life, friends of mine talked about meeting their one true love and having that happily after, but what’s supposed to happen after that? Is your life supposed to be some big ray of sunshine afterwards? You’ll walk on air and see nothing but rainbows in the sky? I highly doubt it because life goes on.
Before I graduated high school, it became annoyingly apparent that everyone was finding their soulmates. Scott found Kira when she first moved to Beacon Hills, Malia found Tracy, and Stiles and Lydia found each other in the first grade. Even I couldn’t deny how cute that was.
I haven’t found mine, not that I was actually looking for them in the first place. My passion for finding my soulmate ended at the end of my eighth grade year. My parents were the most loving people I’ve ever met. Just like Stiles and Lydia, they found each other in elementary school and have been attached at the hip ever since.
It should have been like every other morning before school started. Dad would come in from the night shift, change out of his uniform, and make breakfast for Mom and I. That morning Mom stood by the window, tears flowing uncontrollably as she gripped her necklace.
When she finally noticed I was standing right beside her, she removed her hand from her necklace to hug me and that’s when I noticed. Her necklace turned black. I’ve only seen it once before, when the Sheriff’s wife passed years ago. It didn’t take much to put two and two together to figure out I had just lost my father and my mother lost the only man she would ever love. I’ve gone majority of my life watching my mother pretend like she was perfectly fine as if I didn’t know she was in pain.
Finding my soulmate meant I would have to take the risk of falling in love with the possibly losing them. It was a risk I was not willing to take.
It was the very beginning of the school year. Just about everyone was excited for it to begin. My classes finally ended and I made sure to meet with my friends in the cafeteria. My day never seemed right if we didn’t. We usually started talking about class, but somehow the topic of soulmates always made its way into the conversation. It never bothered me when they brought it up. If they were happy, then so was I.
“What happens to people who don’t find their soulmate?”, Kira questioned, looking at me for an answer
“I don’t know, but I do know that I’m going to go on with my life just like everyone else. Who says I’m required to have a soulmate?”, I smiled
For as long as I’ve had my friends, they’ve never tried to push me into finding them. They knew how I felt and that I was happier this way. Our table in the cafeteria, consisted of soulmates and me. You could say I was the odd one out, but not exactly.
“That is true”, Lydia piped up as she looked away from Stiles, “People who choose not to find their soulmates are free to live their lives just like anyone else”
“Great. Now that that’s out the way, have you heard about Norman University?”
“No, what happened to it?”, Scott beamed. He wasn’t really paying attention to what I had to say. He was too engrossed in Kira to focus.
“It got shut down a few days ago because of issues with funding. Apparently, a quarter of their students are being transferred here. That’s about–”
“Three thousand new students”, Malia groaned
“Yeah”, I sighed. “So for the next month you and I will be up to our necks in paperwork and tours”, I smiled, feigning excitement
Malia worked in the admissions office, while I worked in the student center. They were always extremely busy at the beginning of the semester, but now that 3,000 more students are being enrolled things were about to get hectic.
“When do they start?”, she asked with her face buried in her hands
“Three days give or take”
Three days managed to pass by quicker than I ever imagined and just like I told Malia, campus was a mad house. I spent most of my afternoons giving our new students tours of the student center and answering all their questions. Some seem excited to be at a new school, while others didn’t seem to care. By Friday evening the groups for the tours began to dwindle and I was beginning to see the light at the end of the tunnel. I was meeting with the last group.
“Hello everyone. My name is (Y/N) (Y/L/N) and I’m a student here at Beacon Hills Unoversity. I’m going to show you around our student center just to show you how we assist the students here”
The blank expressions on all their face mirrored my emotions to a tee.
“Trust me I’ll go through this as quick as possible so we can all get the hell out of here”
As I grinned most of the students grinned back. Before I opened my mouth to speak, I felt an unfamiliar sensation near my chest. As instinct took over, my hand reached for the necklace as it began to heat up. I looked at the group in front of me and realized it couldn’t be any of them, it would have started sooner.
One girl smiled as realization hit her, “They found you, didn’t they?”
“No. Not now, don’t let this happen now”, I mumbled as I gripped the necklace even tighter
“(Y/N) are you alright?”, Josh asked as he walked from his desk
When he noticed where my hand was a knowing smile took over his features, “Lucky you”
“No, not ‘lucky me’. I’m not ready for this at all. Please help me”, I pleaded
“Okay I can take over for you. I’ll tell Finnick you weren’t feeling too well”
“Thank you. You’re a lifesaver”
I ran out the student center as fast as I could until my necklace cooled down or until I was out of breath, whichever came first.
“So you ran!?”, Stiles repeated as tried to stop himself from laughing
“Yes, I. Ran.”, I said slowly for the fiftieth time in less than an hour
We were all crowded in my dorm as usual.
“I’ve never heard of this before. (Y/N) you’re going down in history”, Scott smiled as he started laughing with Stiles, “I can’t believe you ran”
“Why is it so hard to believe? I told you all I didn’t want to find them”
“But you never said what you would do if they found you instead. Usually, soulmates are so wrapped up in the feeling of finding each other that they don’t even have time to run”, Lydia pondered
“Lydia that’s after they meet. She doesn’t even know what they look like”, Kira counteracted
The conversation steered away from me as they all talked about the new students that came to campus. Of course my soulmate would be one of them. I’m not at all shocked. I just thought that it wouldn’t happen this soon. A few more years would have been nice.
I absentmindedly nodded my head as they finished their conversation, which is how I was roped into coming to a party thirty minutes later.
Being at a new university hasn’t been all that bad. Especially when it’s the school your best friend goes to. Mason’s been showing me around the campus throughout the week, yet somehow forgot to tell me where I could find the student center. I managed to find the building on my own. It felt like I was being pulled there. Once I stepped inside, I finally knew why when the half circle on my necklace began to heat up. My soulmate was somewhere in this building and I had to find them. I searched the entire building relentlessly until my necklace cooled down. Disappointment hit me harder than I ever imagined. All my life I’ve heard and seen how people changed once they met theirs, but to actually experience was another story.
Most of my friends, like Mason found theirs once they reached high school, but it never happened for me. I watched in amazement as Mason had stopped talking and grabbed his necklace. He looked at faces of all of our classmates sitting in the cafeteria and when his eyes finally met Corey’s he knew he was the one. His entire demeanor changed. I’ve never seen him so nervous, yet undoubtedly happy in my entire life. It was going to be a new beginning for the both of them.
By the time I got back to my dorm, the two lovebirds were waiting by my door.
“Well that was fast. I thought the tour was supposed to be super long and boring?”, Corey asked as soon as he saw me
“I…I didn’t go to my tour”, I responded, playing with the zipper on my jacket
The second I look into their eyes, they would see the disappointment etched all over my face.
“Why not? Isn’t it required for all new students to go?”
“I was there, but my necklace…”
“Your soulmate. They’re here!?”, Mason almost yelled, “Where are they? Why do you look like that?”
“Because I couldn’t find them. As soon as I walked in, I felt it. So I searched all over the building until it cooled down again. I know they’re here, but I don’t even know where to begin”, I sighed
“At least you know they’re here on campus. All you have to do is wait for it to start again”
“In the meantime, you’re going with us to a party tonight. Some upper classmen are throwing it for all the newbies and you happen to be one of them”, Mason suggested, oddly enough leaving me with no room to argue
The party was already in full swing when we got there. The music pounded against my poor eardrums as everyone danced with their friends. It was enough to get my mind off the whole soulmate thing for the time being. We finally managed to push our way to the kitchen to get a drink. Mason and Corey grabbed some cups while talking about someone I had never heard of before. She seemed nice according to their stories.
“She’s been helping out here ever since”, I heard when the edge of the cup touched my lips. Soon after I felt the burning sensation again, only this one was stronger. The cup nearly fell out my hand as I choked on my drink.
“You can’t handle your liquor?”, Mason joked
“They’re here”, I hesitated as I gripped my necklace much like before
“Then let’s make sure we actually find them”, Corey said determined as ever
We walked out the kitchen and rejoined the party, our hearts set on finding my soulmate.
We arrived to the party later than expected. The familiar smell of alcohol and sweat took over my senses once I stepped in. The room was not all that big, but it never stopped anyone from pushing their way to the makeshift dance floor. The room was already burning up. We were on our way to the kitchen and I slowly brought my hand up to my necklace. It was burning hotter than before. I felt overcome with panic at the thought of even being in the same room as them. At this point we were already halfway to the kitchen.
“Guys!”, they all turned around, eyeing my hand, “They’re here”
They all began to look around the room. Anyone with their hands on their necklace had to be the one, but I didn’t want to see them, not yet.
“I’m going to step out back. I need some air”
They all nodded in agreement as I pushed my way past the kitchen and out the backdoor as my necklace cooled down. It wasn’t burning up, yet I could still feel the heat on my neck. I stood near the edge of the balcony, lost in my own thoughts. How would I know if I was ready for this? What if they aren’t who I think they are? Do I act like it’s okay because we were meant to be?
My necklace began to burn again. Silently, I hoped the backdoor wouldn’t open. I began to debate how long would I be in a cast for if I decided to jump off the balcony.
Taking a deep breath once the half circle began to glow, a mix of nerves and excitement took over. This must be the feeling they were telling me about. There was no way to turn back now. The balcony was out of the question. The door squeaked as it pulled open and someone finally stepped out. A part of me didn’t want to have that feeling of being so overcome with emotion, yet another part of me wanted to take that dive.
They stopped a few steps behind me.
“You can come closer. If you want”, I managed to get out
This time they kept walking until they were by my side. I hadn’t dared to look up yet. My stomach was doing backflips as my heart pounded in my chest. If taking a risk was so bad, why does it make me feel this way?
He put his hand on the rail, the edge brushed across mine and I felt the spark. Suddenly all the fear I had before dissipates and I knew I had to see him. I looked up and was met with a pair of blue eyes that I would be seeing for the rest of my life.
Five days. It took an entire five days for Liam and I to finally pull away from each other. We went to class, but every other part of the day we were stuck like glue. It wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be. He told me about his life back home and I told him all about mine. I even told him about how and why I wasn’t sure having a soulmate was for me. He understood it all, yet he was still glad to finally meet me.
We arrived in the cafeteria that Wednesday and made our way to our friends. Oddly enough I was friends with his best friend.
“Look who finally remembered who their friends were”, Stiles grinned as soon as we reached the table, “We thought we wouldn’t see you for another week or so”
It took Scott and Kira two weeks before the feeling wore down. Meeting with your soulmate when you’re older is lot more intense than meeting as a child. No one ever understood why, but according to Stiles and Lydia it was just as intense.
“I’m going to pretend like I didn’t hear that”, I muttered
We made our way to the corner of the table and all eyes were on us.
Liam blushed as he turned to me, “I didn’t really think this was going to happen”
“They’ll stopped…eventually”, I said, eyeing my friends
“Not them. Us. I wasn’t really sure if I would meet my soulmate at this age. My grandparents didn’t meet until they were in their thirties and neither did my parents. I’m just glad that we found each other sooner than they did. Now I don’t know how I survived so long without you”
It felt like we were the only people in the room. I couldn’t hear anything that was going on around us. It's’ something about those baby blues that keep me at ease. Every moment we’re together, he shows me more and more why we’re supposed to be together.
“I’m glad we did too. I really am”
At seven o’clock my shift was coming to an end. I packed my things away as the door slid open.
I knew who it was before I looked up.
“What are you doing here Liam?”, I asked, already knowing the answer
“I’m here to walk you to your dorm”
“I never told you when I got off”
A blush crept over Liam’s cheeks as he looked away. For someone as confident as Liam, it didn’t take much to make him feel this way.
“I asked Josh”
I walked passed the front desk and he immediately wrapped his arms around my waist. I thought I would give him a peck on the cheek for being sweet, but it quickly turned into something more. Soon my hands were running through his hair as he softly bit my lower lip.
“Get. A. Room.”, Josh smiled as he made his way around the corner
We jumped away from each other, completely forgetting we were out in public.
His smile widened as his eyes landed on Liam, “So you finally found her? I thought she was going to be running from you until she graduated”
“How do you two even know each other?”
As far as I was concerned, he never stepped foot into the student center.
“It wasn’t that hard to put it all together. The day you ran out of here, I saw him making his way to the front door. It was right after you left actually”
Josh pondered for a second, “This is why we haven’t seen you for a few days? Finnick said you were ‘sick’”
He started to laugh, “He failed to mention you were lovesick. Who would’ve thought”
Josh walked around the corner again and left us alone again. Liam intertwined his fingers in mine as he led the way.
“Before we get to your dorm I wanted to show you something. It won’t take long”
Usually I’m a skeptic, but I let him take me to where he needed to go. About six minutes away from campus, we stopped at a lake I had no clue existed. It was breathtaking. The moon shined bright as its reflection danced against the lake. I could tell I would be spending most of my time here…when I had time.
“I know. I’ve been coming here a lot lately. I thought you might like it here too”
“I love it Liam. Thank you for bringing me here”
“Of course. Anything for you”, he smiled as he turned around, “I guess I should take you back now”
“Let’s stay for a little while. I’m not ready to leave yet”
We found a spot at the lake and talked for hours. Liam was unexpected, but I couldn’t see myself being with anyone else, but him. He was my soulmate and there was no doubting that.
It was the end of another shift on a Friday night, while Josh and I closed the center. While he logged off all the computers, I spent my time putting away stray books and tidying up the desks. Liam would be on his way soon and I couldn’t wait to spend the rest of my weekend with him.
As we finished our tasks, I felt my necklace beginning to burn again. It hasn’t burned this hot since the day I met Liam. It wasn’t supposed to be doing this again. Maybe it was broken.
After soulmates meet, the necklaces may heat up when they’re together, but never as hot as when they first meet them. It’s the only way to indicate that you’re meeting each other for the first time. No one has ever heard of having two soulmates at the same time. It wasn’t possible so I pushed the thought out my mind. It had to be broken.
As the burning intensified, I walked around the center. The only person in here was Josh and he already had a soulmate. As soon as I made my way to the front desk, I packed my things as quick as I could. The front door slid open just as I grabbed my bag.
“I’m sorry I’m late, but…”
My necklace began to glow as I was met with an unfamiliar face. We were shocked for two different reasons. While he was meeting his soulmate for the first time, I was meeting my second. This shouldn’t be happening, but something about seeing him felt right. His hand reached for the glowing half circle around his neck as well.
The shock went away as he smiled at me, “My name is Theo. Theo Raeken”
“Her name is (Y/N)”, Liam said angrily from the doorway, “And she’s already taken”
