hero biz

February 2017

This is a compilation of fics that I’ve read/re-read over the past month. Faves get a star ( ★ ). There is also a separate fic rec page for my favorites here, if you’d like to check that out. :)

MONTH: February, 2017 | (older lists)

▶▶ A Start by Inell
Teen And Up | 1,458w
Derek’s acting like a jealous boyfriend. The only issue? He and Stiles aren’t dating.

▶▶ An RA’s Guide to Mutual Pining by alocalband
Teen And Up | 2,208w
“Stiles, this is the sixth time in two weeks that you’ve locked yourself out of your own room in the middle of the night and that Scott won’t pick up his phone to let you in.”

“Uh, yeah, man, tell me about it. He really needs to step up his roommate game.”

Derek seriously can’t take this anymore.

▶▶ Candy Hearts by dragon_temeraire
General | 1,133w
Stiles decides that, since they’re the only two single members of the pack, he and Derek should spend Valentine’s Day together.

▶▶ Cute Bus Stop Guy by leslieknopeismyspiritanimal
Teen And Up | 2,142w
The guy gave him a curt little nod and neatly sidestepped him, continuing on his way. Stiles snuck a look over his shoulder, and yep, the rear view in those tight slacks was pretty good, too. The guy stopped at the bus stop, leaning against the sign, and Stiles sighed. It was a dreamy sigh, even he could admit that.

He had a feeling he was going to become a morning person.

▶▶ Delivery Drivers: Unsung Heroes of the Restaurant Biz by DeliberateMisspelling
Teen And Up | 4,756w
Derek Hale is a Good Samaritan, okay? That’s how he got roped into helping out Laura in the first place. Helping the attractive stranger who just literally collapsed into his arms might be more fun, though. Not that he’ll ever admit it, especially since he got puked on first.

▶▶ Demanding Forever Series
[1] That Stalky Thing by wangler
Mature | 2,560w
Derek frowns, thrown off. Teenagers are confusing.

[2] Scientists Document This Stuff by wangler
Explicit | 3,264w
“Your arbitrary sex rules are getting really old,” Stiles says, lipping at Derek’s mouth like a goat at a petting zoo.

▶▶ Dog’s Best Friend by otter
General | 8,923w
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.

▶▶ Former Employment by dragon_temeraire ★
Teen And Up | 4,023w
Professor Stilinski is definitely not expecting to see his favorite porn star among the students of his Human Sexuality class.

▶▶ Help Wanted (But Not Really) by reillyblack ★
Mature | 20,525w
“Stiles, I’ll clear up your confusion about the position. Derek here needs someone to live with him. He’s a difficult person to live with, so I won’t sugarcoat that. But his responsibilities at the company right now make it impossible for him to actually take care of himself and his home. That would be your job,” Laura explained.

Both Stiles and Derek objected at the same time.“

▶▶ Hot Like Burning by leslieknopeismyspiritanimal
Teen And Up | 2,762w
In which Derek is the grumpy neighborhood firefighter, and Stiles is a bit of a lovestruck idiot.

Nowhere in that description does it say “jealous.” It says Felicity feels left out. And why not? Oliver, Sarah and Diggle are all fighters. They would train together. Felicity’s skillset doesn’t really include that. She’s the computer whiz. With Oliver and Diggle bringing Sara up to speed on the sitch in Starling, Felicity wouldn’t have much to contribute. That doesn’t mean she is jealous of Oliver and Sara's personal relationship. That’s a totally different thing.

Then when her ONE skill gets threatened, she wants to prove her worthiness. That she DOES belong with them in the hero-ing biz. A bit misguided? Sure. But for a Felicity who was just threatened Moira and has abandonment issues, understandable.

All this is related to how Team Arrow operates, not Oliver and Sara’s personal relationship. You can bet your ass the SECOND Oliver finds out Felicity is in danger, he’s gonna go ballistic and kick some ass. Then we’ll probably get some awesome moment where Oliver reiterates that he couldn’t be the Arrow without her. And it’ll be awesome.

The producers said that Moira’s secret and Felicity telling him was going to STRENGTHEN Oliver and Felcity’s relationship. And we’re gonna see that as he, Felicity, Diggle, Sara and Roy navigate the new dynamics of Team Arrow. Remain calm. For the love of god.


–So when the news broke that Captain America had stashed his shield, I figured I’d play Golden Archer, toss off some corny Thor-talk– –and force you to be a super-guy again!”

True friendship is dressing up like a super-villain and trying to murder your buddy for an entire issue just to convince him to take on a new super-identity rather than quitting the super hero biz forever. At least, according to Clint. @waynewise!!

Less central but also important to note: Clint spies on Steve when he’s changing.
