have i ever told you that kate was my first obsession. probably

In the largest sense, Katharine Hepburn’s popularity has never waned because people know (magically, intuitively) that she stands for something, even if many of them have no clear ideas as to what that something is. They recognize that in a time of dangerous conformity, and the fear of being different, here is one who stands up gallantly to the killing wave.

Hi! I love your fics and I've had this idea simmering in my head for a while "High School AU where a teacher collects phones and when the students leave the 2 students always mix them up by mistake". Thanks!

i tried my best! here’s stiles and derek being pining goobers with poor, long-suffering bff scott and protective!erica! :D

“Dude, this has to stop,” Scott sighs as Stiles pulls an all-too-familiar phone out of his pocket. “This is, like, the fifth time you’ve done this in the past two weeks!”

“But Scott!” Stiles whines as he all but caresses the phone in his hands. “Derek Hale wouldn’t even give me the time of day otherwise!”

Stiles,” Scott groans, plopping himself down on the couch in the Stilinski living room. “You’ve been ‘accidentally’ mixing up your phones after Ms. Jefferson confiscates them during class for a month now. Either Derek’s purposefully letting you get away with it because he’s hopelessly smitten with you or he’s dumber than a freaking rock.”

“Señor Castellano says he’s the smartest student in our grade’s Spanish class,” Stiles protests, a little offended on Derek’s behalf.

“Yeah, and you get almost straight As, but that doesn’t mean you’re not being a complete idiot about this,” Scott says.

“Hey!” Stiles squawks, a little offended on his own behalf this time. “I’m being realistic, okay? And the reality of this situation is that Derek Hale wouldn’t even know I exist if I didn’t steal his phone on a regular basis.”

“Hey, that’s my best friend you’re talking about,” Scott says, his expression mock-serious.

“Oh, shut up. You’re biased,” Stiles whines.

Fred Weasley x Reader Imagine: "The Girl Who Read"

Going to Flourish and Blotts, and meeting Fred there, and him offering to buy you a book.

I got this idea from a relateable post I saw on pinterest: it said I wish that a guy, instead of buying me a drink, a guy would come up to me at Barnes and noble and buy me a book" or something like that. So here’s my fantasy put into an imagine…

It was your fourth year at Hogwarts, and you went to Diagon Alley to pick up all of the school supplies you would need. You were a muggleborn, but both your parents had abandoned you after they found out you we’re a witch. They never supported your hopes and dreams anyway, so it was no surprise when they kicked you out of the house for being something that they considered so grotesque and unnatural. You didn’t mind though. You had enjoyed being in the wizarding world more than being with those people. You refused to call them your family, because they weren’t yours, instead you had an owl named Kate, who was a golden masked owl. She was the prettiest owl ever seen, but that’s not the main reason you loved her. You loved her because she had a heart of gold. (Get it? Because she’s a golden masked owl? Bad joke, sorry) She loved all other owls, and protected you from humans she didn’t trust. She kept you out of trouble, and helped you though a lot. Not to mention she was smarter than any other human you had ever met.
You were currently sitting on the second floor of the bookstore. You had chosen a bad day to come, because the store was full of witches who were obsessed with some git name Gilderoy Lockhart. It was so loud and crowded, which was why you chose to stay upstairs. You were sitting on a bean bag, sipping warm pumpkin juice, reading an incredible book about magical creatures, which you were totally obsessed with, when you heard the bell on the door ring, for the millionth time today, and saw a large group of red heads, with one brunette. You knew who they were, they we’re the Weasleys.

Although you didn’t know them too well, since they weren’t in Ravenclaw, you had heard plenty about them. Percy, the stuck up prefect, Ron, the wizards chess legend, and Fred and George, the adorable pranksters. As soon as the brunette boy was seen, everybody turned around and made a big fuss, so you immediately knew who it was. It was Harry Potter, the boy who lived. But you were (y/n), the girl who read, or at least was trying. You looked up, to see one of the twins staring at you. You knew it was Fred, you we’re one of the few people who could tell them apart. At this point, Kate was sitting next too you, and she gave you a hoot of approval,telling you that you could trust him. “Um, can I help you Fred?” He turned red as soon as you asked, and said, “(y/n), I know you don’t know me,” you interrupted him and said, “oh I know exactly who you are Fred Weasley.” Kate gave a hoot of laughter and you shot her a look telling her to watch it. “Right, well, I saw that you looked really into reading it, so I wanted to buy you that book.” You were still curious, so you stood up and asked him, “um, any reason why? Oh wait, let me guess: you want me to owe you a favor, so later I’ll help you with your homework or something.” He looked you straight in the eyes and said, “no, I just-I just really like you.” He said with a smile. “You what?” “I like you (y/n). As like, more than a friend, and I’m sorry if I’m being forward, but I needed to tell you, so…” You gave him a kiss on the cheek, and he stopped talking, and blushed once again. “Yes Fred, you can buy me this book.” He looked very hopeful and happy. “So, you like me back?” You giggled, “of course. I think you’re cute, and funny.” “Really?!” You winked at him, like he always did those cute winks of his.
“Fred! Where are you?” Molly called. “Is that your mum?” “Yeah.” He looked down and blushed. You lifted up his chin and said, “Don’t be embarrassed, she is super sweet. Once I saved Ron’s arse by helping him write a report for his midterm, since he would have failed without me, and she sent me a box of her amazing fudge. But I don’t know how she found out.” He sheepishly said, “Oh, Ron told me, and I told her you saved him.” “Awww, that was so sweet of you Freddie!” “FRED WEASLEY! Where are you!” Molly called again.

“Well, you should probably get back.” “Of course, but I should buy you this book first. ” he said as he gently took it from your hands. “Oh, right. You know, it really is quite interesting, you should give it a read. Better than Lockhart’s books for sure.” You said as you went down the stairs. He went to the register and pulled a few sickles out of his pocket and gave it to the man standing there. The two of you walked up to his family, and Molly let out a sigh of relief, “oh there you are Fred, where have you been? ” she turned to you and said, “Oooh! And who is this? ”
Fred put his arm around your shoulder and said, “Mum, this is (y/n). She’s the smart girl who helped Ron with his homework last year.” Her eyes lit up, “Oh! so you’re the one Freddie’s always talking about. My, you’re even prettier than he said you were!” He blushed as soon as she that. “Well, now that you’re here, I don’t suppose you’d like to continue shopping with us, would you?” Fred turned to you and looked at you hopefully. You said, “of course! I’d love to, I’m here all by myself anyway.” Fred smiled wide, gave you a hug, and planted a kiss on your temple.

He opened up the book, and suddenly became very interested in it. You were reading it with him, until Draco Malfoy walked up to Harry and got up in his face about being too famous or something, (you never really paid any attention to anything he said,) when Ginny went up to him and told him to leave him alone, he said, “oh look Pottah, you’ve got yourself a girlfriend!” You couldn’t stand to see him being such a jerk so you said, rather loudly,“Hey everyone look, Draco’s jealous! ” he quickly replied, red in the face, “am, am not! ” “ooh look, he’s blushing! ” (ps guys I ship drarry) just then, while everyone was laughing, draco’s father walked in, and everyone tried to contain their laughter, but continued giggling. “Draco, what’s happened here? ” he asked. “Nothing” he quickly replied. His father continued to make extremely rude remarks about Hermione and her parents, and the Weasleys, when he said something that made you loose it.
“What’s the use of being a disgrace to the wizarding world, if they don’t even pay you well for it?” You got up in his face and said, “What’s the use of being an asshat if no one gives a shit about it? Huh, Lucius?” “Well, you must be the other smart one. The girl who read. Obsessed with books I see? ” “Yea, because at least I know how to read. ” He looked at you with a shocked face, almost as much as everyone else’s. No one ever stood up to Lucius Malfoy like that, and no one stood up to defend the Weasleys, either. He clearly had no words to say, so you waved him good bye and gave Draco a sarcastic smile, and they both stormed out, with looks of embarrassment on their faces. You turned to the Weasleys and said “let’s get going, ” as if it was no big deal, and then Fred gently but quickly grabbed your face and planted his soft lips on yours. You put your hands on his neck, and when he pulled away, he looked you in the eyes, his hands still on your face, and said, “thank you so much, (y/n). ” you asked, “for what? ” and he took his hand off your face and said, “for standing up for us” you still didn’t get it. Ginny said, “(y/n), no one’s ever stood up to him like that. ” you suddenly understood. You looked back at Fred and said, “well Fred, I guess we’re even now. ” he laughed and said, “trust me (y/n), that won’t be the last book I buy for ‘the girl who read’.” And he gave you a wink, that you absolutely adored.

my recs for #readwomen

So I rather likes this idea so I decided to share a few of my favorite female authors that aren’t quote as well known or talked about on tumblr, either because they’re older authors or just cuz the genres aren’t as hyped up!

Anne McCaffrey - The queen of dragons people, her Pern series has made me cry more than any other book series I’ve ever had the pleasure of reading. There are dozens of books and her son is now taking over the series now that’s she’s passed away, but still if you haven’t read these. Go. Read. Now! She also has a couple of sets of books revolving around sci-fi which are of course great reads too. Just kinda read everything by her. They’re fast and easy to read and you’ll love yourself for it!

Mercedes Lackey - Right up there with Pern at getting me emotionally involved in characters until I weep right along with them. Her Valdemar series is absolutely superb with a great mix of diversity. Plus, talking ‘horses.’ Do I really need to say more? But honestly all of her books are pretty much amazing, I haven’t read one of them I wouldn’t recommend to someone else.

Anne Bishop - Absolutely one of my fave ‘new’ authors. The Other series is my newest obsession and I’m literally counting the days until the next book comes out. And her Black Jewel series is also very empowering and demanding on the soul. Warning though these books are made for trigger warnings so read the summaries and know what you’re getting into first. 

Patricia Briggs - Ah my true love, I would haunt this author if I died before she stopped writing her books. Seriously I’d just hang around her office and read over her shoulder as she write and just be in heaven. Fantastic mix of characters, monsters, diversity, genders, sexuality, mythologies, etc. Just fantastic. I love every single thing about these books.

Naomi Novik - Absolutely interesting read, her Temeraire series is an AU that absolutely appeals to me in every way shape and form. The story is told from a point of a view of a British naval officer during the time of Napoleon’s rise to power and creation of his empire. With one twist…did I mention dragons are real and used by the military as aerial combat units? 

Tamora Pierce - I read these books as a teen and came back later in life and re-read them again. And yes I still love them. Built around diverse female lead characters in a fantasy world, her books are a pleasure to read.

Gail Z. Martin - Absolute genius are creating a in depth and complicated fantasy world with a huge cast of characters and locations. Like Game of Thrones level of world creation here and about the same length in book size too. lol

Karen Miller - Creating massive diverse fantasy worlds with political machinations and magical backgrounds and theories with the same ease that I manage to turn on my computer with. I’ve read two of her series so far and am eagerly looking for more from her in the future! So also writes under the name K.E. Mills and those books are just as amazing too. Definitely an author for a reader who loves to dive into their fantasy worlds. 

Jane Lindskold - Fantastic world builder and character builder, she really does a great job of creating diverse characters with different voices in her stories. Plus the inclusion of ‘Royal’ animals which have human or above level intelligence is a bonus for the critter loving side of my life. Plus one of the main characters is a giant wolf, so take that as you will as my type of story. lol

Robin Hobb - Creator of what is probably one of my absolutely fave fantasy worlds, in which all her books kind of interweave a presence through. There is just some kind of odd joy for me in seeing the names of towns and players from others books mentioned in a completely different story and knowing that they’re all in the same vast world.

Diana Pharaoh Francis - Fantastic fantasy/adventure stories with great fun characters and worlds that are great to read over and over again.

Jennifer Estep - I’m about 7 books into her Elemental Assassin series and have yet to be disappointed by her writing and her characters. 

Ilona Andrews - Okay so this may be a bit of a cheat so you might save these for another time if you want. These books are written by a husband and wife team. But honestly I love the Kate Daniels series so much I can’t help but recommend reading it. It’s rare to have a funny, tough, character with some lovely sexy scenes mixed into a plot that is outstanding.

Warrior Cats Movie Announced! - Why You Should Be Excited!

by LZRD WZRD

China, may just be our salvation after all.

I went to bed last night ready to find myself a good bunker to hunker down in after suffering through the final presidential debate. Jonah Goldberg summed it up best that these things sound like a nasty divorce proceeding. I was ready to divorce myself from life last night until I woke up today to discover literally the greatest news ever: Warrior’s author Kate Cary tweeted out this morning, quote:

“Finally, I can share our big news!

WARRIORS MOVIE!

All I know atm is “Alibaba Pictures” and “in development”. I’ll keep you posted.”

So unless you’re Tennelle Flowers, this is probably the greatest news of your entire life. This is in a sense, the birth of my baby. I’ve been reading Warriors for 10 years and throughout that time me and the rest of the fandom were continuously told this was never gonna happen. Now I admit, this announcement doesn’t guarantee it’ll actually happen. It also doesn’t mean that I get to star as Jayfeather in the sequel films. And most importantly, it doesn’t dispel any of the misgivings that Tennelle had in her video: Why You Shouldn’t Want a Warriors Movie. However, what it does do is give me a reason to live. The 49ers suck, Hillary Clinton’s gonna be president, and I have a calculus test on Tuesday. But, there’s a Warriors movie in the works and if there was ever proof that there’s a god watching over me, this has gotta be it. I’m LZRD WZRD and this is: Why You Should Be Excited About the Warrior Cats Movie!.

So diving into this, I always figured that the best way to adapt Warriors would be for all of you to give me a few thousand dollars per month on Patreon.com/LZRDWZRD, that’s L-Z-R-D W-Z-R-D, and with that I could produce four amazing seasons of an animated Warriors series. I actually tweeted out this plan last week, stating that I’d split the original series up so Into the Wild would be a stand-alone season, with books 2 and 3 being combined into season 2, books 3 and 4 combined into season 3, and then book 6 would be season 4. What’s nice about this order is that it will still work if we replace seasons with movies. Into the Wild would be the perfect book to adapt to film by itself. It features a fish-out-of-water protagonist in Firepaw whose desire to find freedom and a place in the world is the perfect way for people to get invested in the film’s universe. Additionally, the book features a complete villain arc with Brokenstar and ThunderClan’s desperate efforts to oppose him, while also featuring sequel bait with Tigerclaw and Fireheart’s quest to expose his treachery. This is the perfect formula for a successful first movie. We’ve already gotten to see part of it come to life via SSS Warrior Cats’ fan episodes of the first few chapters. These videos total a little over an hour and cover the first 50 pages of the 270 page book, or about 20%. When you cut out the intros, outros, and announcements, these easily come in under and hour. Then when you factor in that the videos are pretty slow-paced to begin with and feature additional material like the Whitestorm fight sequence, it’s easy to imagine this all being condensed into 15-25 minutes without losing any of the original material. So if we give it 20 minutes for this early section and multiply that by 5, we would have about an 1:40 minute film, which is about the time it took the Guardians of Ga’Hoole movie to translate three books into one movie’s worth of material. So given that, I don’t think we’d have to worry about this first film cutting much out.

Plus the middle part of the book gives plenty of leeway for the writers to add their own touches. Firepaw’s training, Yellowfang’s introduction, the trip to the Moonstone, and the battle with ShadowClan all take up a lot of narrative time but don’t contain a lot of material vital to the spirit of the story. Now obviously I’m not saying they should cut any of this out, but parts of it could easily be condensed or changed for the benefit of the film and the artists working on it. I could definitely see some dark and visually stunning sequences coming out of the Gathering and Moonstone chapters which I would love to see on screen. This movie also provides a great opportunity for Firepaw’s “romance” with Spottedleaf to be better developed. It’s easily the weakest part of the book and series as a whole in my opinion, although I might argue that Firestar’s obsession with a childhood crush at the expense of Sandstorm makes for a really compelling character flaw. But since this movie doesn’t have a guaranteed sequel to flesh that angle out, they might just give this couple actual screentime and chemistry. So if anyone should be excited about this movie, it should be the Firestar and Spottedleaf shippers, who may just get to see this relationship done proper justice. Another sequence from the book that could be improved on in the movie would be the climactic battle between Firepaw and the ShadowClan rebels against Brokenstar and his followers. In the book, this battle only takes up four pages and I’m not talking about War and Peace pages people. It always seemed like kind of a letdown that this huge event starts and ends so quickly. That’s not to say that it’s bad, as Firepaw does have a really important moment when Whitestorm jumps in and stops him from killing Clawface to avenge Spottedleaf. For all of the people who say he’s a Mary Sue, this is a scene that proves that he had to learn and grow as a character before ascending to the paragon of virtue that he later became. I really hope they keep this in the movie and give the whole scene a real theatrical embellishment. There are so many emotions going on in this scene between Firepaw’s lust for revenge and Yellowfang’s confrontation with her murderous son that it’s hard to imagine how the studio could make this battle being anything less than spectacular, let alone screw it up. Which brings me to the next part of the video: How to Screw Up a Warriors Movie and Make Tennelle Smirk at Me (in 60 seconds or less!)

Now all of this great stuff completely hinges on the studio’s decision to make this film for ONLY Into the Wild. The reason why Legend of the Guardians underwhelmed was because of the studio’s decision to crush multiple books and arcs into a single movie. If the studio decides to throw out Brokenstar or give that arc a back seat, the logical replacement would be to have Tigerstar’s coup and subsequent exile be the climactic scene. The problem with this though is that an insane amount of material would end up getting cut and characters like Ravenpaw, Cinderpelt, and Cloudtail would suffer immensely. Also forget about that Firepaw-Spottedleaf romance. Heck, they might even cut out Silverstream and Graystripe’s relationship and instead replace it with Fireheart and Cinderpelt. Cinderpelt would get pregnant and then die like Silverstream and then I would lose my mind and storm out of the theater. What would really suck about this is that the movie would end on a relative low-note, rather than the New Hope-esque ending of Into the Wild where a giant success took care of an immediate threat with another bigger antagonist lurking in the shadows.

Tigerclaw’s exile was a good thing, but the effect of it devastated Bluestar who nearly tore apart ThunderClan as a result. Not to mention, Silverstream’s death destroyed Graystripe and led him to leave the clan. The end of Forest of Secrets sees Fireheart standing all by himself with the task of carrying his adopted clan resting on his inexperienced shoulders. That’s why this is ideal as the second movie in the series, as it builds on everything the first book setup, while also shaking up the status quo drastically enough to warrant more interest going forward.

Warriors gets compared to Guardians of Ga’Hoole a lot and while it’s fair to worry that this movie may be a disappointment like that, there are two important things to note. 1) the Guardians of Ga’Hoole movie wasn’t that bad and has plenty of supporters. If a Warriors movie makes the same mistakes, it could still be salvageable if the cast and animation is good. Heck, even a major deviation in the storyline could still be well received, although I don’t see any reason for that to happen, which leads me to 2) Warriors is better setup to succeed than Guardians of Ga’Hoole. The reason why the Ga’Hoole movie combined multiple books was because of the structure of the series. Many of the main characters weren’t introduced until late in book one or even in book 2. The first book also doesn’t have the big fight climax that other books in the series have, which translate better to a cinematic story. By contrast, Into the Wild has all of its major cast members introduced immediately in the story and has a satisfying climax that builds on them. Given all of that, there’s no reason for the studio to deviate from just adapting Into the Wild. It’s still very early in production and I’m sure we’ll have a lot more to discuss and speculate on going forward. But just for now, we can sit back and celebrate. Our childhood starts again today and maybe, just maybe, it’ll be alright.

the breadsticks meme (a remix)

one

Once upon a time, Bucky Barnes knew how to date. 

No, really.  This was not rocket science.  All a fella needed to do was to walk up to the lady in question (after making sure that she was currently unattached, because stealing another fella’s gal was a good way to get punched in the face), be polite and charming and ask her out for a milkshake or a coffee or maybe go see that new movie.

And if she said no, take the hit like a man and respect the lady’s choice.

Mama Barnes raised her son to be a proper gentleman.  If there was one thing that Bucky would not argue with Steve about sticking his nose into, it’s respecting ladies. 

So this, as his therapist put it, was basically an exercise in reclaiming a part of himself that had been ripped away by those HYDRA sons of bitches.  It wasn’t that he expected to be Tyrone Power (Fine, yes, Darcy, I will update my references, Jesus) from the get-go, but just have a nice time with a nice gal, have a good conversation, get some great food, maybe see a show or a movie, be human again.  

“Breadsticks?” Steve, because he’s the best pal a fella could have, made this generous offer as soon as Bucky flopped down on the couch beside him.

“Are these from Mama Corleone’s?”  Oh yes, the sweet softness of the bread, the garlic and the hint of cheese.  Mama Corleone had the best breadsticks in New York.  Her grandson Mikey had inherited the recipe and her knack for it.

Steve put a hand on his chest in mock-affront.  “Y’think I’d get breadsticks from anywhere else?”

“Mmmm.  Mmmmmmmmmm.” 

“Do I need to leave ya alone with the breadsticks, Buck?  Because I gotta tell you - I can share ‘em but I won’t give you all of them.”

“Shaddup, ya punk.  And you’re looking mighty flushed there - you’re not supposed to get sick anymore, are you?”

“Shaddup and eat your breadsticks, you jerk.”

See, Steve knew that there was no need to ask what happened on Bucky’s date.  (Yes, it was a bit of a bust.  Don’t ask, don’t tell.) That’s why he was Bucky’s best pal. 

It wasn’t like Bucky could hope for anything more, right?

Okay, so a WEEEK ago I got an anon who asked me for my favorite Stereks. I totally forgot. I tried putting them in the ask reply box, but the formatting was all off. So this is for you, nonnie. Sorry its so late. And that the formatting is still weird. This isn’t all of my favorites, I stopped about halfway through my bookmarks, and there are also a few at the end that don’t have summaries or comments. Sorry!!! My top 5 on this list are bolded.


Adventures and Exploration, Survivah, complete series

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.

I’m a total sucker for full shift Derek. And by a bit I mean MAJOR. Add in Stiles who is born as a fox and gets mixed up with Deaton’s magic, slowly turning him into a human, and you make a really lovely fic.

10 Things I Hate (Love) About You, catsteww

When Kate Argent hires Stiles to date Derek and get paid for it, Stiles obviously agrees and sets out to win his heart. Except Stiles wasn’t expecting Derek to actually have layers underneath his tough exterior, and he certainly wasn’t expecting to develop pesky little feelings for him. And everything gets a little messed up along the way.

Lightly based on the movie.

10 Things I hate About You is like… My FAVORITE movie so finding out there were fusions for it made me so happy I could cry.

The Amber of the Moment, redhoodedwolf

Ever since he was eight years old, Stiles had been running. Fate decided it was time to stop.

I’m not quite sure when it happened but one day I woke up and decided fox Stiles was my favorite Stiles, other than merman, and this fic is definitely one of the absolute BEST out there. Stiles is 19ish I think in this one? And at 8 something traumatic happened and he shifted into a fox and he’s been in fox form ever since, until Derek stumbles across him in the woods one day.

Super cute, kiiiinda slow burn but not really ‘cause it’s only 30k.

Birds of a Feather Fuck Together, calrissian18, maichan808

Laura is a crusader without a cause, Stiles dances like the whole world’s betrayed him and Derek’s having trouble getting both feet outside his door.

I do not know how to properly convey how much I loved this goddamn fic. It was absolutely flawless. It was fucked up and hopeful and dark and miserable and just completely ten shades of fucked up. Stiles… You just kinda want to hug him and smack him at the same time. And Derek, you just want to hug Derek. I don’t know why I decided to read this fic. I’m not big on ballet/dancing aus. But one afternoon I was bored and decided to read it and I won’t ever regret it. This ending is easily one of my top 10 favorite endings, out of any fic, movie, book, anything.

Of Books and Boys, RonnieMinor, unfortunately complete series

The one where Stiles is at Oxford (with Lydia), works in a second-hand bookshop (also with Lydia), and meets Derek Hale, the Irish creeper who likes poetry and brooding.

Now including: Derek meeting the Sheriff/Stiles’ friends from home, and Stiles meeting the Hales.

All I’m going to say is… Irish Derek.

Bulwark, kellifer_fic, incomplete series

Beacon Hills is the kind of small town where everybody knows everybody, and what everybody knows is that surly diner owner Derek Hale and free spirited single dad Stiles Stilinski have been in love with each other for years. If only they knew it too.

I just love fusions, and this is a Gilmore Girls one so naturally I love it. Derek as Luke is something I didn’t know I needed until I read it.

By Moon and Stars, kellifer_fic

“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 love this one so much, I read it five times in two days and I’ve probably reread it at least fifteen times since. I wish it were longer though.

A Desperate Arrangement, mikkimouse

“I’m sorry, I believe there’s something wrong with my hearing,” Stiles said. “Because I could have sworn you just told me you set up a betrothal agreement with the Hales. A betrothal agreement involving me. Me.”

Scott smiled his easygoing smile and nodded, which told Stiles no, he hadn’t misheard a damn thing.

After seven years of lengthy negotiations, the treaty between the Hales and the Argents has fallen apart and the two countries fell into war.

Months later, there’s an uneasy truce, thanks to the intervention of King Scott McCall, but it won’t last. In a desperate attempt to maintain the peace, the Hales sign a treaty with the McCalls to marry Prince Derek to Prince Stiles Stilinski, King Scott’s brother.

In the history of the world, there have been many better ideas.

This was one of the first ones I ever read, and there’s a reason it’s on so many rec lists. I am soooo long overdue for a reread.

Dog’s Best Friend, Otter

Other people might have found the name of the place off-putting. Stiles didn’t. He was actually relieved, when Scott handed him a business card that said “HALEHOUNDS” across the top, because clearly, if anybody could recognize and understand the evil that lurked within his dog’s fluffy precious body, it was these people.

This was really the one that sparked my Sterek with pets obsession. I want more dog fics.

Dude, Werewolves, mysecretashes

Stiles gets partnered with Cora for a history project, and they become bros. Also, he kind of falls in love with her older brother, Derek.

The Halloween party scene in this fic is probably one of my favorite Sterek scenes… Ever.

Fireman Derek’s Crazy Pie, owlpostagain

He can’t blame me for the fact that I live in a building full of people united in the singular effort to ogle Hot Fireman as often as humanly possible.“

Laura laughs, loud and echoing in the empty restaurant.

"Hot firemen can make a girl do crazy things,” she agrees, nodding towards her brother’s name on the menu. “Derek won’t let me date anyone from his company, but that doesn’t mean I can’t appreciate the eye candy.”

“Send them my way,” Stiles suggests, finally loading up a forkful of pie. “Apparently I’m incompetent enough that I need to be babysat at all times, because it would be cheaper than dispatching a truck every time I try to use a kitchen appliance.”

I really feel like the only things I need to say to sell this fic is… Derek is a fireman that bakes. That’s really all you need to know.

For My Flesh Had TUrned to Fur, and My Thoughts Had Turned to You, literaryoblivion

They’ve known about the other pack for quite some time now. They know the pack is young and small, formed together more by accident and necessity than anything else. But, they haven’t done anything about them because they’ve been fairly quiet, kept to themselves, and haven’t caused any trouble.

That is until the Hales start hearing rumors about the McCall pack acquiring a very young and inexperienced but powerful witch.

So Alpha Hale sends her eldest son, Derek, for all intents and purposes, to spy on the McCall pack and their so-called witch, to see what the truth of the situation is.

THIS ONE IS SO CUTE THOUGH full wolf Derek falling in love with emissionary Stiles and STILES BRINGING HIM FOOD UGH YES PLEASE MORE.

Hale at Heart, sysrae, series hopefully not complete because I need more

Derek is having a bad day and breaks down on a stranger’s doorstep.

Stiles is the stranger. He really doesn’t mind.

Also, there’s a cat.

This is my second favorite out of all of them on this list, easily. My go to for a bad day, I’ve read it probably a thousand times. Also, Stiles in the second part is just unf. Read if you need a pick me up. (Yes I meant to bold this one all he way)


Heartfire, Cempagaldre

Life hasn’t been kind to blacksmith Derek Hale. Only a month after he moved to the royal capitol of Beacon and started working as a way to escape his past, the royal family is brutally murdered by Deucalion, one of the king’s former generals, and his men. While the oncoming political instability hardly has any impact on him, two weeks later, Derek’s quiet and solitary life is nonetheless disturbed by the sudden appearance of three young men who were thought to be dead. One of whom changes his life in ways he could never have imagined; someone who, for the first time in years, makes him experience things he thought he’d never feel again. But then again, life has never been kind to Derek… Will this time be different?

Medieval and regency aus are my THING yo. And this one did NOT disappoint. It was a little fast paced for me, at least as far as how their relationship progressed, but not so much that you’re left going WTF. Plus. Prince Stiles. Warnings: Graphic depictions of violence, underage

Hold the Door, Hatteress, maichan808

When Derek is killed by a rival alpha, the pack will stop at nothing to get him back. Even if that means blackmailing the most dangerous hunter duo this side of hell. Whatever. That whole devil thing was probably totally exaggerated, anyway.

As a rule, I fucking HATE crossovers. I don’t know why. I never think they mesh well. I don’t like the two worlds colliding. EVER. That being said, this fic is just… Phenomenal. It features Laura, I LOVE Laura, And has a happy ending. It’s perfection. I rec it to everyone, even my friends who aren’t in the sterek fandom, haha!

Hot Nerd Alert, alisvolatpropiis, hopefully incomplete series

Derek can’t believe he’s actually doing this: taking a selfie snap of the guy he’s been crushing on for weeks to prove to Danny that one, yes, he really does exist, and two, he really is that hot and thus he is totally justified in being too scared to make a move.

Or you know, even talk to the guy outside of the class they share.

In his defense, this isn’t just any guy. This THE guy. Hot Nerd. The utterly adorable but still somehow insanely sexy freshman in his twentieth century American Lit class who he’s been lusting over since the first day of the semester. If there were ever a time for him to be that person who tries to be subtle while taking snaps of other people, this is it.

Oh my god this author just. Ugh. Writes the HOTTEST fucking smut scenes. There is locker room sex and baseball player Derek.

I Want You To Want Me, sweetbutterbliss

Derek scrubs his hands across his face before crossing his arms over his chest and furrowing his eyebrows at the two idiots standing in front of him. Well, Scott is an idiot. Stiles is…luminescent, and all jerky movement, with big, golden brown eyes. And he always has a plan. Derek is fucked and, it turns out, unable to say no to him.

Oh look. Another 10 Things fusion.

I’ll Love You Still in Hell, talktowater

Stiles has always had these dreams where he was drowning, they were just dreams, really fucking horrible dreams but just dreams nevertheless. Right?

Gay pirates with feelings and past lives yes.

Idioms, Ark, incomplete series (but can be read as complete)

They kiss for entirely too long. If anyone found them in the woods just then they would be like, dudes, this is excessive.

Stoner Sterek. This is a two part series, super fucking hot. Like oh my god. Stiles and Derek are mates and get high and have sex.

If Prayer Were the Answer I’d Fall on My Knees, IAmAVeronica

“Shit, Der.” Stiles shivers. “You promise when we get to the room—”

“I’m going to lock the door, undress you, and make up for every minute of the past six weeks.” Derek grins when Stiles’s pupils blow wide with lust. “And we’re in the chapel, so you know I’m not lying.”

“Forgive us, Father,” Stiles mutters, and grabs Derek’s hand. “For we are about to sin so hard.”

~~~~~~~~~

For the past four years Derek and Stiles have been roommates at St. Cecilia’s Catholic Boarding School. For the past two years, they have been secret lovers. Now, as senior year dawns, one boy begins to seriously consider coming out, while the other feels pressured by church and family to deny his identity.

There’s also some Romeo and Juliet, a lot of fluff, a heap of angst, and Jeff Davis as a priest, because… reasons.

In short, it’s the bare: the rock opera/Teen Wolf mashup that just wouldn’t get out of my head.

As someone who deals with internalized homophobia after being raised as a Catholic, this fic was fucking hard. It was so fucking hard. There wasn’t a single chapter that didn’t resonate with me. By about halfway through I was crying, like, ugly crying. It DOES have a happy ending though, and it really helped me deal with and confront some shit actually. Warnings: There are none listed, but attempted suicide, bullying, mentions of conversion therapy, I THINK there was a hate crime but it wasn’t physical, I think it was just mentions of past hate crimes, internalized homophobia, as well as derogatory language. Like I said, there’s nothing easy about this fic.

In the Solstice of our Hearts, ravingrevolution

“You’re not putting that up your butt,” Scott told him flatly and Stiles couldn’t stop the pissed off whine he made, but his friend continued. “Stiles, you can’t put that up your butt, you know that. Your butt won’t be ready for anything to go in it until-”

“Okay, okay!” he said, flailing his hands to stop his friend’s lecture. “Message received, no butt stuff until I’m pounced on by some freaking animal in the forest and ravished to within an inch of my life. Got it. Thanks, Scotty, I mean heaven forbid I actually try to take control of my life and give myself a fighting chance or anything.”

“Not all alphas are animals,” Scott said quietly.

Maybe he was right, but Stiles wasn’t holding his breath.

I’m not going to lie, I think mating run is a weird trope. Like, there are some weird tropes, but that’s kind of at the top of the list for me. I just normally don’t like them. They have to be done WELL for me to like it, much like A/B/O fics. But this one was fantastic. Maybe I liked it so much because Derek and Stiles were both so against it? I don’t know. Maybe ‘cause there wasn’t a ton of public forest sex? Maybe ‘cause Erica and Boyd? I don’t know. But it was great.

Like Heaven Catching Lightning, weathervaanes

Prince Stiles of Cor has always known, somewhere in the back of his mind, that he was never truly going to marry for love. Fighting it has only made it worse. Now, presented with a choice between two children of the Hale family of Ignis, Derek and Cora, he must make the decision to determine who will rule by his side. If only it were that simple.

-0-

“Tell me,” he says, taking a drink. “If your sister does accept me as her husband, would you be pleased for her fortune or yours?”

Derek sets down the pitcher and moves further into the room, removing his vest and setting it over a chair. “I don’t believe that’s a fair question. If she finds happiness in your kingdom, by your side, of course I’ll be pleased for her.”

“And relieved, I imagine.”

Derek turns, arms crossed over his chest. “Would you be?”

Real talk I really do think medieval and regency tropes are my favorite.

Lime and Chili Aioli, Jinko

Stiles was stuck in a bank robbery in the middle of the day in the middle of Beacon Hills and he could have pocket-dialled Scott or Derek but his phone was on the kitchen bench, covered in lime and chili aioli.

I have a soft spot for possessive Derek… I don’t know why… I hate it when I’m with someone and they’re possessive, but I feel like it kinda works for Sterek sometimes? Plus I really love when people who aren’t Stiles and Derek pick up on the UST and general tension and they don’t, haha.

‘Linksi’s Late Night Antidote to Lame, WhoNatural

Where Stiles has his own college radio show, and the mysterious, faceless Derek is his number one fan.

Also there’s this really hot guy he keeps meeting in the library who totally hates his guts.

I have read this one SO MANY TIMES I just cannot even. I can’t make a single complaint about this fic because there isn’t any to make. (Except Derek is totally more of a Bucky than a Captain America.) Tattooed Derek is just UGH and mix that with tortured musician Derek and a texting relationship and piningpingpiningpining and this fic is just brilliant.

The Lunch Table Configuration, thepsychicclam

When Isaac makes Derek switch lunch tables, the last thing Derek expected was to fall for Stiles.

This was my first psychicclam fic, and I am so glad I stumbled across it ‘cause they’re my absolute favorite Sterek author.

Maybe If I Tell Myself Enough (I’ll Get Over You), Ciarawrites

“Derek?” he asks in astonishment.

Derek’s frozen in front of him, eyes boring into Stiles’ like he can’t believe it’s really him.

“I thought you were in Russia?” Stiles asks because it looks like Derek is having trouble forming words. Derek’s been in Russia for five years. Stiles met him two weeks before he left. Stiles fell in love with him two weeks before he left.

“I- I am,” Derek stutters. “I’m only here for the night,” he adds apologetically.

I read this fic three times the same day. Three. Times. And cried each time. I don’t know why. It’s a Friends fusion and I’m not a huge Friends fan but I am a huge fucking fan of this fic.

Maybe Someday (I’ll Be Home for Next Year), ofherlionheart

AKA, the Grandma Stilinski fic. Derek Hale meets a Mabel Stilinski while living in New York. He learns that she has a grandson. There are miscommunications, scarves, stealth-matchmaking plans, and cookies. Many, many cookies.

Yes, a Christmas fic. Save it for Christmastime or read it now, but regardless it‘s a must read.

Move a Mountain, Zainclaw

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.

This is the fic that made me love Zainclaw. i would’ve liked it more if it were a werewolf au, to be completely honest for the first couple of chapters I kept expecting it to be. It was so completely perfect though.

The One Where Stiles Vets Derek’s Girlfriends, uraneia

Across the loft, Cora claps her hands. “Okay, new rule. Any time Derek wants a date, one of us has to vet her first.”

Scott, who’s actually upside down on Derek’s couch, in apparent celebration of their defeat of the alpha pack—which somehow ended with Kali trying to give Derek her number, and he still doesn’t know how that happened, because he’s the worst alpha ever—says, “You know who’s got really good people instincts?”

*

This is some fluffy silliness I wrote in reaction to “The Girl Who Knew Too Much.” Anyone looking for a serious story should probably look elsewhere. However, if you want to know the kind of flaws Stiles discovers in Derek’s possible dates, this is the place for you.

This fic is short, but hysterical.

The One Where They’re Forced to Marry in Ye Olden Times, Stoney

Due to the destruction of House Hale and the debts incurred in their survival and search for justice, the King (blah blah, make believe world) arranges a marriage between Derek and Stiles, eliminating all debts the Hales may owe. Derek is very unhappy. Stiles is pretty shocked at who he’s being matched with, but he’s certainly not unhappy. It’s pretty clear from the start Derek doesn’t share that feeling.

Stiles passes the time by hunting with his falcon, Derek broods. Until…

Pretty much everything Stoney writes is worth reading. This is part of a 4 part unconnected series that’s all just perfect.

Open the Door, Renay

Derek gives Stiles his jacket.

‘This one is kind of canon compliant… Which is normally not my cup of tea. But it’s super cute with oblivious Stiles where every single other person, including random supernatural beings, knowing what’s going on and he doesn’t. Warning: Underage.

The Sins of My Caretaker, weathervaanes

It smells like smoke, that’s what wakes him up. It doesn’t smell like burning wood, which would really freak him out, it just smells disgusting like—

Stiles takes a very deep breath. “ISAAC, I AM GOING TO WRING YOUR FUCKING NECK IF YOU’RE SETTING DOG SHIT ON FIRE AGAIN!”

-0-

In which Stiles is the oldest sibling to a fucked up family and it’s his job to make sure they don’t end up dead, meth addicts, or in juvie. And then Derek crashes into his world and makes everything a little bit more interesting.

I’ve never actually seen Shameless, but it’s been on my list ever since I read this fic.

Stiles’s Story Time, Trilliath

Where Stiles is a librarian who is in charge of the kids’ reading hour and such. And Derek is 6-year-old Scott’s adoptive dad. And Stiles has his own take on Stories and Scott loves wolves and Derek tries not to admit that he likes the way Stiles’s face looks in those glasses.

Or something like that.

It’s a single dad Derek and librarian Stiles fic, I don’t need to say anything else to sell this one.

Stilinski Custom Cakes, wearing_tearing, incomplete series

A Strong Heart and a Nerve of Steel, lupinus, uraneia

Three Marks, sanam

The Truth is Totally Out There (Dibs!), callunvalgari

Tumescent, kellifer_fic

Unwind, coffeeinallcaps

Waiting Games, Jerakeen

Want is A Dangerous Thing, grimm

We Pick Ourselves Undone, themistymountainsong

Derek Hale has been cursed with a wolf-like face since birth, which he can only be cured of by marrying a fellow high-society blueblood. Derek has little hope of ever finding anyone he can stand, or who can stand his face, until he meets Stiles, and his carefully-maintained isolation is completely upset.

A Teen Wolf/Penelope AU

I have read almost every romantic comedy au out there in the Sterek fandom, and this is definitely one of my favorites. Stiles as a tortured artist/musician is something I need more of.

The Well of Living Waters, kalpuna

We’ve Got Something Magic, alisvolatpropiis

Scott is never bitten, so Stiles never meets Derek or learns about werewolves. He is, however, since a young age, captivated by a recurring dream of a beautiful, red-eyed wolf that he comes to hold dear to his heart. After college, he moves to Seattle and decides to get a tattoo to acknowledge his dream Wolf, finding a lot more than he expected at Triskele Tattoo.

In which Derek is a tattoo artist and a good alpha, Laura is alive, and Stiles and Derek share each other’s dreams.

This fic is everything to me. It’s my go to when I’ve had a bad day, when I’ve read a horrifying fic and need a guarenteed good one, I’ve had panic attacks and calmed down by reading this fic. There’s tattoos and knotting and alpha Derek and alive Laura and weed and it’s just amazing. It’s everything. My favorite Sterek fic that isn’t a part of a series, by far.

We’ll Stay Where We’ve Gone, secondstar

Wolf of the Waters, NimblePhoenix

An AU in which Derek flees to his family’s vacation home on the coast in an attempt to leave behind Beacon Hills and all its ghosts. Stiles is a bold young merman who likes to feel the sun on his scales and isn’t about to give up his favorite place to sun bathe just because a brooding werewolf has moved into the long abandoned beach house. Mythical creatures abound and romance is in abundance.

I feel like a piece of me died last night.

Of course, Ziva David was a fictional character, but I grew up admiring her and loving her unconditionally and I can’t believe that she is gone for good this time.

I was 11 when I first started watching NCIS, now I’m 21. I immediately fell in love with Ziva and Tony. There was this beautiful, strong, smart, funny woman who could stand up for herself, who was tough, yet also vulnerable. Always teasing and being teased by that other agent. The two of them were so obviously in love, even when they didn’t want to admit it back then. At school, I wanted to play NCIS with my friends. They could be Kate or Abby, but I was always Ziva, there wasn’t a question.

At the age of 14-15, I wanted to dress like Ziva. I loved her early outfits, the khaki, the black, all of that. But also as her character evolved and she wore just simple yet gorgoeous jumpers and shirts, I wanted to look like her. I even tried to wear my hair like her. She was the first character who made me happy to have natural brown hair, cause that way I looked a bit like my idol. I also wanted to have a character like hers. I wanted to be strong, smart, hardworking, I even wanted to be able to fight. No character has since inspired me as much as Ziva has.

My obsession with Tiva never really stopped, the wall above my bed is still full of pictures of them. Of course, season 7 was very special, I even watched Jet Lag in English which I almost never did back then, but I just needed to see my loves immediately, I couldn’t wait until it aired in Germany. Tony and Ziva were growing closer by the season, getting past every obstacle that was in their way… and then the news of Cote leaving broke. I was devestated, I was crying for days, swearing that I would never accept her replacement and that I would stop watching NCIS. I accepted Ellie quickly, because I realized that there was nothing we could do to get Cote back, but I never really watched anything past season 11 because I just did not care anymore.

Ziva’s farewell was terrible, I even watched it live in the middle of the night cause I needed to say goodbye to the woman that helped me grow up. I cried so much during those two episodes, especially since Cote was barely present in them. And then she was just gone. And now 3 years later, I’ve lost her again. I cried the full hour of the episode and then some, because I just could not believe that the writers would do this. It just wasn’t necessary, Ziva could easily have survived without Cote having to guest star. But CBS went the other way and just ruined a beautiful character by writing her completely different than she used to be. As if Ziva wouldn’t have told Tony about her pregnancy. They loved each other so much, I’m absolutely sure that they both would’ve given up their normal lives to be together as a family.

The worst thing for me was how the others reacted. It looked as if Ziva had been dead for years now because none of them seemed to really mourn their sister, their daughter, their friend. Of the three leading ladies that have died over the seasons, Ziva got the least important farewell, because her death was used to advance Tony’s storyline and nothing else. They mourned Kate for so long, even after only two seasons with her, and Jenny’s death had the biggest impact on the team. Both of their deaths deserved to be important, of course, I loved them too, but I just wished Ziva would have gotten that too. And the writers probably think that they gave us all we ever wanted: Tiva is canon and they even had a daughter. But they made everything worse by giving Ziva a seemingly unimportant death off screen. She died in her sleep. She couldn’t even fight for her life.

I will never forgive the writers for this episode and I’m never watching another episode of this show again, except maybe if one day Sean or Brian or anyone from the old team leave the show.

And with that I say goodbye to one of the most important characters in my life, Ziva David. And I say thank you to Cote de Pablo for bringing this amazing character to life. You and Ziva deserved so much better.

You are so loved.
