i'm not even sure if it was sterek or another fandom

anonymous asked:

Hi, Saori! I see you blog a lot about Sterek and I was wondering if you read fanfiction too? If yes, can you rec me some fics to read? If not, can you recommend a blog that you think recs good fics? I find your taste in Larry fics similar to mine and I was hoping you can do the same with Sterek as well. Thank you!

Oh boy, honestly I have no idea what to say, I’m just glad that not everybody’s fed up with my Sterek spams (probably a lot of people are but oh well) :D

First things first, you should check out @theofficialstereklibrary @wheredidhiseyebrowsgo @underappreciatedsterek @acountrygirlsfun @christinesficrecs @eternalsterekrecs and if you like Larry too then @nottooldforthisship recces  awesome stuff all the time, (her sterek fic rec tag is a blessing) (my fic rec page is kind of a mess, but you can find some there too)

As of my recs, I usually don’t do it cuz I’m always anxious I’ll rec something the other doesn’t like, but since you asked so nicely here are some of my faves:

The Undisclosed (109k) - For once the pack doesn’t panic when a new hunter arrives. The gleefully sadistic man has labelled himself a collector of all things rare in the supernatural world and wants one of the rarest creatures; a werefox. Content that the pack is safe, the wolves focus on why their human member is acting so strange, ignoring the fact that Stiles only started once learning who the man wanted…

I’ve read this like, how many times? Way too many to be healthy? Seems accurate. And I’m totally not re-reading it again, nope.

Baking My Way Into Your Heart (179k) - Derek is an uptight college student, all work and no play. His carefully scheduled life is thrown kilter when his regular barista is replaced with someone new.

This fic changed my life tbh.

As Luck Would Have It (I’m already smitten) (188k, WIP) - When Stiles meets his Dom for the first time, it’s nothing like the cutesy, lovey-dovey Subflicks he used to drag Scott to when they were thirteen. There’s no burst of sunshine when they collide, no sudden swell of violins when their eyes meet; only a really big dent in the front of his Jeep and a seriously pissed off Alpha glaring at him from the sidewalk.

When I see the e-mail I shut down and don’t even look up until I finished reading the update. It’s by far the most exciting fic I’ve read, and I read A LOT.

Do Not Go Gentle (108k, WIP) - Derek Hale, Beacon Hills Alpha, is thrown into a dark cell which already contains another captive.   Someone quite young.   Someone who’s clearly been badly treated.  Someone who cannot speak and who has a cruel collar around his neck.Derek is both a Dom and an Alpha.  What do you think he’ll do?

Same with this. Mondays can’t come fast enough. Dark, but worth it for me.

Home (160k, WIP) - January seventh. Seven days since the start of 2015, and seven days since his father’s death.The bastard, he thinks bitterly. The past year Derek Hale had made it blatantly obvious that he hated his scrawny guts, taking every given opportunity to shove him up against a wall, growl threats in his ears and roll his eyes whenever he stepped into the room, muttering some snide comment about how spastic or idiotic he was.So why did he fucking volunteer to take him in?

You can’t even imagine what this fic does to me. It’s everything.

Keep reading

Hello!! I see that you like sterek and I'm just getting into them. If you have the time could you rec me some of your favorite fics? There's so much out there and I don't know where to start. I'm a big fan of angst if that helps :)

First off: welcome to the greatness that is sterek (and it’s lovely and very talented fandom)! 

-Note: I don’t memorize the names of many of the fics I read for some strange reason. I can remember the entire fic but most likely not the name so sorry for taking a log time with this! I promise there is so much more than this!

-Second note: READ THE TAGS FOR EVERYTHING!!! there can be things that are triggering for some people which is also why I am leaving some fics out of this list because they are some heavy stuff for me to remember (even though I’ve read them) or just things you won’t like so make sure you read those!

ANGST (aka what I live for!!) in no specific order:

Occam’s Razor // MissAnnThrophic (wc: 49182)

When Stiles goes to sleep, he’s a junior in high school. He wakes up in a world where he’s twenty-four and married to Derek Hale. Stiles just can’t seem to catch a break.

Gravity’s Got Nothing on You // zosofi (wc: 83980) [the first sterek fic I read :’)]

“Three weeks,” Derek says.“Still don’t want to,” Stiles says.“I’ll pay you,” Derek says, and that… that has Stiles interested. Alf’s Antique’s may be a great job, but it’s not a high-paying job, and half of Stiles’s tuition is coming from financial aid, so…“How much,” Stiles asks, “are we talking here? Because I know your family, dude. And it’ll be kind of awkward after.““My family thinks you’re some sort of fucking gift to the world,” Derek seethes, like he’s jealous, “they’ll probably be pissed at me when we break it off, so don’t worry about that. Five hundred bucks.”“A thousand,” Stiles says, because screw ethics. Also, the Hale family is loaded. Derek can deal.

I Know Where Babies Come From Derek // DiscontentedWinter (wc: 51937)

Stiles finds a baby on the porch.

It looks exactly like him. Well, this is awkward.

Lord knows it would be the first time // uraneia (wc: 12287)

Stiles is home from Berkeley for the summer, but only because he promised the pack. He’d rather not see Derek, because whatever the thing was that they were doing, they’re not doing it anymore, and it sucks.Unfortunately, he doesn’t have a choice. The betas tried a magical remedy for Derek’s melancholy, and now Stiles has a three-year-old who looks like Derek. Stiles doesn’t know how to deal with that, and he definitely doesn’t know how to tell the betas he and Derek were secret fuck buddies for a year and a half.

In Word and in Deed // lielabell (wc: 7778)

Stiles has stopped saying “I love you.” Derek wants to know why.

between the click of the light and the start of the dream // thepsychicclam (wc: 105192)

A twig snaps, and then Stiles hears breathing and the rustle of leaves. He strains to get a better glimpse into the darkness, but it’s pointless. There’s nothing but a black void.It’s Stiles’ senior year, and he’s trying to concentrate on normal things - like the lacrosse championship, spring break, prom, graduation (and definitely not Derek) - when he starts having nightmares and waking up in the middle of nowhere. Oh yeah, and he’s being haunted by a hag. Great.

Kaleidoscope // Vendelin (wc: 54223)

Stiles spends a year before college working at the all-night coffee shop in town. It’s nice and quiet, until one dark and brooding Derek starts coming in every morning, ordering coffee so strong that it should not be fit for human consumption. Ever. Stiles tries not to be affected by the mystery guy, but it’s not like anything else happens around here, so really, what did you expect? And when he’s already in too deep, he realises he might even be in way over his head…

Conerstone // Vendelin (wc: 83738)

Suffering from PTSD, ex-Marine Derek Hale moves back to Beacon Hills to open a bookshop and find a calmer life. That’s where he meets Stiles, completely by accident. Stiles is talkative, charming and curious. Somehow, despite the fact that he’s blind, he’s able to read Derek like no one else.

By Any Other Name // entangled now (wc: 33090)

He doesn’t know his name, he doesn’t know who he is, and neither does the werewolf he’s on the run with. But he’s pretty sure they hunt monsters, because they seem to be really good at it.

Don’t Speak // fatale (wc: 68916)

The Alpha pack has systematically attacked Stiles and his friends for months, testing their strengths and weaknesses. When one of the Alphas goes after Stiles, he awakens in the hospital and realizes that something’s wrong. Very wrong. All sounds seem to hurt him, he can’t understand what anyone is saying, and when he tries to speak, it’s gibberish. How is he supposed to deal with the fact that he’s lost the ability to communicate with his dad and his friends?Without his ability to talk, his sarcasm, and his wit, what does Stiles even have left? Enter Derek, the only one who seems to make it better.

Say Something // orphan_account (wc: 49724)

That first time Stiles decided it was probably wise to let sleeping werewolves lie.

He’s Not Mine // Sunnee (wc: 68534)

Derek comes home to find an abandoned werebaby on his front porch and Stiles volunteers to help him out. Surprisingly, that is just the beginning of his problems.

The Littlest Alpha // triedunture (wc: 52508)

Derek and Stiles have taken out the Alpha Pack and pretty much saved the world. Okay, the town. Okay, their remaining friends. But the Alphas left something behind: a baby. And this baby is an Alpha too. Derek is determined to take care of the abandoned child, and Stiles is stuck going along for the ride.But Stiles doesn’t expect the ride to include seeing another side of Derek, or to find another way to say “family.”

Now as Ever (All That Is and Has Been) // venis_envy (wc: 52270

Stiles can’t remember what happened to rearrange the time-space continuum, or how he ended up being pulled into the past. All he knows is that he’s there now, in 2003 Beacon Hills, with a teenage werewolf and a possibly-crazy veterinarian as his only allies.

Three Marks // sanam (wc: 113736)

“And then there was pain again, but this time it was in only three places—his arm, below his clavicle, and next to his heart, all on the left side. It felt like the skin was being sliced apart, ripped open, flayed off—

And suddenly it was done.

Derek looked across the room and saw the boy on the floor, looking about as bad as Derek felt.“Derek and Stiles learn that bonding is probably best done with ridiculous amounts of video games and maybe a little bit of time.

Inertia // apocryphal (wc: 216080

The last thing Derek and Cora are expecting to find outside their motel room is a gaunt Stiles Stilinski, lacrosse bag on one shoulder and the weight of the world on the other.

All That’s Best of Dark and Bright // morganoconner (wc: 28180)

It’s not a gender identity crisis if you’ve known all along what the problem is. If you’ve been purposely trying to ignore it since you were old enough to consciously make that choice.But what happens after that, when you finally learn how to let go?

Electricity In the Contact // ladyblahblah (wc: 27067)

In which Derek has been invited to the Greater Pacific Northwest Alpha Symposium (that’s not what it’s called, Stiles, stop saying that), and showing up unattached would mean an arranged marriage. When the rest of the pack objects, he agrees to let Stiles come along to pose as his mate. Derek is reasonably sure that he’s not going to make it out of this weekend alive.

The Company I Keep // secondstar (wc: 67551)

Stiles has a favorite table at the library. Then some asshole comes along and steals it from him.

with my friends help I decided that I was only gonna rec this ones because most of them are long so I figured that you could at least like one of these and then once you finish it you can ask me for more and I’ll probably have another list ready. 

ps these aren’t even that angsty.

anonymous asked:

I'm fucking mad okay. I'm so mad I hate being ace so god damn much, I read all the sterek fluffy smut fics and I want it so much but I can't, and it makes me so made you fucking writers make me want to fall in love with some to experience that sex. That God damn sex you write about that expresses so much love and trust. I hate you for it but I fucking love you for it too

First of all, precious nonnie, I want you to know the way you feel is 10000% okay. 

I also want you to know that while sex is one way to achieve closeness and intimacy, it is just that. One way. Writers, myself included, tend to write sex a lot of the time as this “ultimate expression” of love but the thing is, the feelings we put into those sex scenes, they really, truly don’t have to be had during sex. Society has a horrible habit of sexualisng everything, right down to movies where people are always like “damn, we haven’t had sex in a year, our relationship is dead.” Movies and media like that essentially teach us relationships need sex to “stay alive” instead of reminding us the whole entire reason you are with someone in the first place is not for their genitals but because you love spending time with them. 

Intimacy, love, trust. None of them need sex. None of them should need sex. Sure, for some people sex is a way to channel those things. For some it’s the only way they can channel them. For others, sex is just another way to be all, “hey, I love you!”  For others again, sex is just fun and has nothing to do with intimacy or love at all. 

Movies and television (and yes, fandom too) all lack good friendships when it comes to relationships. Men and woman can’t be friends without wanting to bone each other (according to every movie and TV show ever). All relationships are apparently “over” when the sex stops. Most couples in movies use sex as a way to “find the love again”. Hardly anything ever just focuses on why people are together and re-connecting emotionally.  I mean, personally? I’ve never experienced sexual attraction. Do I find people pleasant to look at? Do I think Dylan O’Brien is unfairly attractive and should be banned from my life for the sake of my own health? Yes. But sexual attraction? I can’t say I have ever felt it. I can write about it but none of what I write is anything I have ever personally experienced. I’m not sex repulsed either - far from it - but let me tell you, before I found fandom I thought this meant something was wrong with me because I couldn’t understand how I could read sex and look at sex and crave something about it and yet just…not feel that way myself. I still don’t know how to identify myself and while some days that bothers me, I know at the end of the day it’s all good. That I am me and that is that.

God, this is the worst reply in the history of replies, but at the end of the day, whatever you are feeling is good and never hate yourself for who you are. You are perfect and you don’t need to have sex. You don’t need to like it. And even if you do like it in theory, through fanfic for example, you don’t need to like it in practice. Sex is often held up as this basic human need when it’s not for a lot of people. Sex is just another thing in life. Sex means a lot of things for different people but never feel like it has to mean something to you when it doesn’t feel right. Trust, love, intimacy, that can be had and experienced in a hundred different ways and you don’t have to go anywhere near sex for them. I promise. I mean, think about:

  • cooking together
  • drawing patterns on each other’s arms
  • scalp massages
  • hugging
  • just sleeping together
  • watching movies together/reading together
  • dancing
  • sharing food/feeding each other
  • tickling
  • hand holding
  • going on all the dates
  • laughing
  • Eskimo kisses
  • nuzzling
  • sharing secrets/stupid stories
  • building a pillow fort (this one is the most important, don’t fight me)

This list could go on forever and none of them are sexual. Relationships are about all these things and although some people choose to add sex to that list, it doesn’t mean you have to to get the exact same thing people who do have sex experience. Love is not about sex, sex is merely way one of the many many ways people can choose to experience it, if they so desire. Society do a bang up job of telling us over and over sex is essential to every relationship and if you aren’t having it something is wrong, either with the relationship or you. But it’s not. Nothing is wrong. You are amazing and perfect just as you are and sex or no sex, love is love. 

Psssst, @crossroadswrite​ also recced me this wonderful asexual!Derek Sterek fic which you might like to read!

anonymous asked:

So I'm new to this ship, not sure I like "ship it like fedex" yet.. but a lot of your prompts are super cute. Any really good fic suggestions?

Oh, thank you. :) And welcome aboard!! There are so many beautiful, clever, well written fics in this fandom, I’m sure you’ll find plenty to enjoy.

Canon or mostly canon:

Sense of Home [E] [53067]

Home can be a place, but it can also be a person.

After the events with the Nemeton, Stiles starts suffering the consequences of their sacrifice. A journey he attempts to make on his own, but only becomes worse with every step he takes. In the process he seeks comfort in an unexpected place and it draws him toward an unexpected person.

The first long Sterek fic I read, and it really helped me fall in love with the ship because of the slow build and how well it fit with the canon.

Illuminated [T] [5013]

“Because I’m falling in love with you and it’s scaring the hell out of me.”

Really beautiful short Sterek fic. Stiles and Derek discover each other in the aftermath of 3B.

Patterns of Intention [E] [17085]

Derek looked like the stuff of his deepest fantasies. His shirt was rumpled where Stiles had his hands in it, and he was breathing hard as well, chest heaving. His eyes—his eyes were glazed over and he looked stunned, like he’d been—like Stiles had—

“No,” Stiles said, blood draining from his face. The word was croaky and felt like it had to be wrenched out of his chest. “God, no.”

Derek and Stiles bond while they’re training with Deaton. Stiles learns to tap into his spark, and things go really well… until he wishes for Derek to want him, and suddenly Derek does.

Somebody That I Used to Know [M] [10379]

Stiles and Derek have been together for months.

The trouble is, they weren’t yesterday.

The Alpha pack is coming after the pack by messing with their memories. Really good and heartwrenching.


A Couple Favorite AUs

No Homo [E] [84064]

Stiles’ sophomore year starts something like this:
3 FourLokos
+ 1 peer-pressuring cat
- 1 best bro to end all best bros
= 1 Craigslist ad headline that reads “str8 dude - m4m - strictly platonic”.
Derek is the fool who replies.

College AU, Stiles is decidedly straight; he’s just looking for another totally straight dude to hang out with and maybe jerk off with sometimes. This fic is so good, fun and sexy and just enough angst. A fandom classic.

Play Crack the Sky [M] [122797]

Excerpt from “Hale Pulls the Plug on the Future of Rock,” Rolling Stone, Issue 1203 – Oct. 2014
“Fans and music industry vets alike are left reeling in the wake of bassist Derek Hale’s sudden departure from Smokes for Harris. At a time when the foursome from Beacon Hills, California seems to be on the cusp of rock superstardom after just one double platinum record, Smokes has everything to lose.”

Excerpt from “Smokes for Harris: Gladiator,” SPIN.com – Feb. 2015
“Smokes for Harris gives in a little to the pop punk of yesteryear in their sophomore effort, but rather than pandering to fans of a lost era they elevate the genre in a way that hasn’t been seen in quite some time. Frontman Stiles Stilinski works double duty as singer and primary songwriter and proves that he can handle the task even without former bassist Derek Hale.”

This band AU took the fandom by storm recently and with good reason. It’s so well written, heartwrenching, and smart. I’ve read it twice already and love the hell out of it, definite rec.

There are a lot more I love, but these are a few to get you started. Followers, feel free to help a new fan out and add in any recs of your own to the list. :)
