hot date with a book


Blind Date With A Book (by thepsychicclam):

Stiles thought the Blind Date With a Book trend was a great way to drum up business for his small bookshop. He definitely thought it was a great idea after the hot guy kept returning and buying more blind dates with books.

Derek didn’t know how he kept getting set up on blind dates by his family, or why he kept going on them. The highlight of his night was when the date was over and he could go to the little bookshop in town and buy something to read for the rest of the night. He wanted to read, not date.

Came for the coffee, stayed for you (by nashirah):

“Ask him about Twilight!” They heard Laura’s shout. Derek almost dropped his hammer.

“For Christ’s sake, Laura!” He shouted back, and added, calmer now, “She made me read it, alright.”

(Or the one in which Stiles’ dad owns a bookstore and Derek’s mom runs a coffee shop. It’s just a romance waiting to happen.)

A Missed Opportunity Is Found (by gaydestiny):

Derek was more than halfway done with shelving the new shipment of Young Adult fantasy novels by the time Stiles finally breezed through the door, signaling his late arrival with the dull jingling of the bell. He wasn’t even in his work clothes yet, and Derek noted with disdain the streaks of mud that covered Stiles from head to toe.

“You’re more than an hour late,” Derek stated, more of a fact than an admonishment. Stiles was not only the boss’ kid, he was a snarky, arrogant teenage boy with an abundance of confidence, and Derek could rarely muster the nerve to stand up to him, regardless of his position as manager.

Too bad Derek is certain Stiles doesn’t know he exists.

random marauder headcanons

because @aromanticspacemechanic and i started talking about the marauders and science and then it just collapsed into the marauders and everything

  • james is a tiny nerd baby who is completely IN AWE of muggle science like yeah he tries to act cool (spoiler alert: he’s not) with how much he knows on magic topics, but then when he’s introduced to science he’s completely blindsided by everything
  • so he spends his hols reading up on whatever he can get his hands on just rudimentary science textbooks, like primary school/ early secondary school stuff because everything is so amazing and he’s just a combination of charmingly befuddled and dazzled by the ingenuity of muggles
  • (lily doesn’t help ofc, because she’s always casually-except-super-slyly referencing muggle things like lightbulbs and telephones)
  • speaking of which, the thing he’s in awe of the most is the telephone because it’s an instantaneous form of communication and he’s super stoked about it because imagine not waiting 3 days for an owl to deliver your message
  • (quote from @aromanticspacemechanic: ‘i can’t believe james potter co funded skype’ me: *losing my shit*)
  • sirius doesn’t want to get caught up in the muggle knowledge because he’s actually ~cool~ but 1) it pisses off his parents and 2) yeah ok some of this is actually kind of interesting fuck you prongs for getting me involved in physics
  • sirius can hardly make fun because he catches onto math like some people catch the flu! Arithmancy, and eventually mechanical work (for his bike) come along easily
  • really, all the maths + mechanics from physics he’s a whizz at it (‘what? is it like hard?’ he asks elle woods style
  • lily is so in love because he’s incredible to look at yes, but he’s so intelligent and his eyes light up when he’s fascinated by something and THEYRE BOTH NERDS IN LOVE
  • and ofc fleamont and euphemia didn’t dissuade him (fleamont is an enabler because what do you mean there’s not a little bit of chemistry involved in potions making)
  • peter has a knack for geography, especially when it comes to map work so he’s the one who did most of the foundation work on the Map and the drawings too; he’s really good at sketching and has idle hands so he’s always doodling somewhere
  • remus is a history nerd he can spout facts about the British monarchy the way some people can spout song lyrics he would have been a huge game of thrones fan who would rant about how problematic it might be but in the end begrudgingly go back to it because of the fact that it’s based off the war of the roses, which helped found the Tudor dynasty
  • he prefers the books to the tv show but he can’t get enough of it and he cries because of george rr martin’s world building he’s also a lowkey literature nerd who’s like really into drunk history (modern au remus anyway) 
  • he’s the type to get the ~aesthetic~ covers of the booksand then he gets mad because a nicer aesthetic version comes out the next so he owns multiple copies of the same books 
  • his Instagram is delightfully pretentious and aesthetically pleasing full of his pretty self, pretty books, his pretty friends and hot chocolate dates with all of the aforementioned it’s pinterest worthy aesthetic 
  • peter tries to mimic it but he’s more of a food blogger/ art creator on his, and very rarely you’ll see a selfie, but you do see a lot of hastily done sketches of his friends
  • poor James, tho his Insta is a hot mess (like him ayyy) but it somehow works? there’s no rhyme or reason but he gets the most likes and it’s the worst™
  • it’s mostly blurry pictures, that are overexposed and you can’t tell what or who you’re looking because for someone so intelligent he just doesn’t GET social media it’s all a blurred mess with his thumb in the frame half the time and it drives lily and sirius up a wall
  • Lily has the prettiest Instagram you’ll ever see it’s kinda hipster-y but it works of course, she denies it being hipster-y but we all know the truth, Evans
  • it’s filled with flowers and sunsets, coffeeshops and books, cute outfits and shopping days, halsey inspired captions and her cat doing stupid things
  • sirius is kinda grunge maybe? but pretentious grunge that’s like 90% his motorcycle he rarely every posts but when he does tt’s pretentious af #motorcyclesexual
  • there are a few posts of lily’s cat thoug, a tiny little kitten in the pocket of his leather jacket. he’s leaning against a wall, hair tousled and artfully messy
  • it’s aesthetic and james is jealous because of course lily’s stupid cat likes sirius instead of him of course
  • lily just finds his jealousy funny and reassures him that she likes him don’t worry
  • (he still gripes about it for the next few days, only stopping when she finally grabs hold of his collar and pulls him down for a kiss. after that he’s like cat who? and too busy grinning like the dork he is)

You had always been a big fan of the holidays in the past. So ever since joining the Avengers a few years ago, your holiday spirit had rubbed of on the team. Now every year you all would take a day off to decorate the tower together. It became a tradition. Every year the team would exchanging gifts on Christmas day which was followed by a lot of seasonal movies.

This year however, was a bit more special than the rest. Not only did you’ll now have Bucky and Pietro back. It was also your first Christmas together with Steve since you both became a couple. So you were a little disappointed when he volunteered to decorate the living room with Bucky. Which left you stuck decorating the main floor with Natasha and Clint.

The two spies picked up on your mood and did their best to distract you throughout your time decorating together. It worked for the most part but by the time you were done you were feeling much better.

You didn’t blame Steve or Bucky at all. This was their first Christmas together since the 40’s and the first holiday they could spend being semi normal for once but you were a little upset.

By evening the tower was completely decorated. After making sure the main floor was set, you excused yourself and made your way to the kitchen to cook dinner with Wanda. The two of you jammed out to a lot of Christmas music while you cooked. With the occasional entrance of Pietro who complained about how long the two of you were taking. Which resulted in you using your powers to trip the speedster and causing the team to have a good laugh.

After dinner was done everyone settled to do their own thing. You were exhausted from the day but dying to read the rest of a book you’d started. The kitchen was your first stop, you had decided to make yourself some hot coco before heading to the living room. You stopped in surprise though when you noticed Steve there.

He smiled at you when he saw you standing there. He took a couple steps forward and enveloped you in his arms, grinning down at you like you were his world.

“Hey there Doll.”

“Steve,” you said, almost breathless just from the sight of his smile, “you’re supposed to be training with Bucky and Nat.”

I was supposed too but I decided I’d rather spend time with you” he said with a light smile and hopeful look your way.

“Well to bad soldier, I have a date with my book and the hot coco I’m about to make” you say, letting out a breathless laugh as Steve’s hopeful face fell.

You moved around him to start making your drink, Steve followed you. Wrapping his arms around your waist he starts peppering your neck with kisses and light nibbles.

Come on Y/N, pleaseeee.” He’s resting his head on your shoulder now, watching you work. You take out another cup and make him one too.

“Fine, you can relax with me in the living room,” you say, Steve  grins and goes to kiss you before he can tough, you speak again “but we’re only talking soldier, nothing more.”

Steve lets out a low groan before agreeing with you. He grabs his cup and yours before following you to the living room. The minute you open the door though you were in awe of the room which almost doesn’t look like the living room anymore.

The whole room is decorated beautifully with cute Christmas decorations everywhere. Someone changed the covers on the couches; they were all white now with red and green throw cushions. There were two large fake show men near the windows; a huge tree off to the left which nearly touched the ceiling and was fully decorated. The rest of the room had tinsel and fairy lights everywhere. Along with that were  small Christmas-y knickknacks lying around on the tables and shelves as well as Christmas themed mats. Even the bar was decorated.

You were in absolute awe, in all the years the tower had been decorated it had never been this decorated. You heard Steve setting down the cups and then approach you.

Surprise” Steve whispered in your ear, holding you loosely from behind.

“Bucky and you did this? Oh my god.” You said, you just couldn’t seem to get over the shock of it all.

Well it wasn’t just us,” he said, turning you around in his arm so he could look at you better, he was grinning widely, “The other helped too. I swear we wouldn’t have reached that high without Tony and getting the tree in place would have been hell if it wasn’t for Wanda. Nat and Clint had to keep you distracted so we could surprise you.

You spun around to take another look at it all and to take it all in. Steve let you go so you could look your fill. When you turned back around you reached up and cupped his cheeks and looked him in the eyes.

“You’re amazing, you know that.”                

Of course Doll, you keep reminding me.” He said, his grin widening, as he cupped your cheek with his left hand.

“If I don’t remind you then who will, you dork.” You said, smiling wide.

Steve let out a breathy laugh before meeting your eyes again still grinning like an idiot.

“What?” you ask, getting confused as to what he finds so amusing.

Look up doll.

At first you’re confused but as you look up you spot the mistletoe in his right hand you knew this was his plan all along.

“Oh you cheeky son of a b-“

Language” Steve says, grinning widely before crashing his lips on to yours.

The hot coco long forgotten by the two of you.

Happy Friday!! These are all the great reads from this month. I feel like there’s a bit of bookishness going on with this list, but don’t worry there’s still pining Derek and…sex :)

A Little Sugar by exclamation | 4,987

The first time they had sex, it was after Derek paid Stiles’ rent. The second time was after Derek bought Stiles’ groceries. It wasn’t hard to work out the pattern. Derek hates himself for taking advantage of Stiles and tries to convince him that any form of payment is unnecessary, but he can’t seem to break the cycle.

Derek goes undercover to expose a drug trafficking ring running inside of a porn studio. What he finds is Stiles.

here comes trouble by grimm | 105,833

All Derek wants is one day where he can sleep without worry of being woken by gunfire, without the threat of death hanging over his head. He wants a full stomach and no pain clinging to his bones, no ache in his feet from months of running. He wants a shower, a safe place to put his head. He wants his family, the healing comfort of pack. He’ll never have any of that again.

Hold your tongue and hear me out. by TamzStripped | 11,785

Derek just needs to find the owner of the stupid name on his wrist so he can finally be happy. He’s damaged goods and he can’t even pronounce the name on his wrist. He’s beginning to think he will be alone forever. That might be ok though, as long as he can keep Stiles in his life, he might just be able to be happy.


Stiles pining after his best friends big brother waiting for the idiot to fall in love with him without some predestined bullshit so that they can live happily ever after, and if they are lucky, have lots and lots of sex. Lots.

Matchmaker, Please by LadyMerlin | 4,852

There are no more chapters. 22 is the last one. Derek groans in despair. He has to know what happens.

Rare Books and Special Collections by KuriKuri | 15,288

Derek Hale hates libraries.

Unfortunately, not all books can be ordered on Amazon.

(Or: in which Derek is a grumpy omega writer, and Stiles is an annoyingly attractive alpha special collections librarian.)

running with the wind by thepsychicclam | 15,458

Derek’s been running and hopes he can find sanctuary in the Stilinski Pack’s territory. The Alpha isn’t the strong sheriff he thought he was, but a sarcastic awkward teenager that Derek finds he kinda hates.

The One Where He Pitches And Catches by mikkimouse | 4,272

Derek entered the conference room, spotted the table with “M. P. Stilinski” on it, and stopped short.

Oh fuck.

It most definitely was not going to be fine.

Sitting on the other side of the table was the most attractive man Derek had ever seen, with whiskey-colored eyes and pale skin with dark moles speckled across his jawline, moles Derek was very familiar with because he’d spent two hours last night drunk out of his mind and licking them.

The Socioeconomic Repercussions of Mutually Assured Destruction by alocalband | 15,285

The trouble with having the kind of brain that likes to write essays on male circumcision for an Economics class, is that it also likes to turn PowerPoint presentations for Biology into odes on the perfection of notorious bad boy Derek Hale’s backside.

Things We Lost by Dexterous_Sinistrous | 20,008

“Who … who am I to wed?”

A small flash of guilt covered the king’s features before he was able to recover. “Your union will join the royal families—joining our family to the Hales.”

Dread and sorrow sunk in Stiles’ stomach as he closed his eyes.

There was only one Hale left unharmed by the great fire that nearly wiped out the entire royal family—the Dread Wolf of Triskelia, Crowned King Derek Hale.

You’re a Mess, But You’re a Catch to Me by jsea | 11,634

The laws are clear: omegas are required to have an alpha guardian. So when the sheriff gets shot, Derek is roped in to stepping up as Stiles’ temporary alpha while he recovers.

Derek knew it was going to be a bad idea, but he never could have predicted all of the ways that Stiles would end up turning his life upside down.
