Watching Derek dote on someone is hard – harder than Stiles
thought it would ever be, despite the fact he knows it’s insincere; despite the
fact it’s the job and nothing more.
It’s hard because
Stiles hasn’t had those arms around him in months, hasn’t had opportunity to
arrange a chance meeting on a crowded street in weeks, hasn’t had Derek’s eyes
meet his and watched his mouth curl into a smile for him.
Derek’s team have
been fairly indulgent, letting Stiles tag along on the assignment to observe
and allowing him to blend with various crowds just to be close to Derek. Early
on, before Derek insinuated himself into their mark’s life, they even allowed
them to talk on the phone, but that might as well have been in another
hates his job, hates Derek’s job, hates the fact they’d never have met if it
wasn’t for their jobs because then he can’t hate it as much.
Stiles is across the
restaurant and he can’t tear his eyes away from the back of Derek’s head for
more than a few seconds at a time, usually at the prompting of the agent he’s
sitting across from.

So because elves are Magic they don’t get cold like Legolas was hopping on snow drifts without proper shoes even. but Elrond is half human so what if he gets… chilly. Like not hypothermia or anything, but chilly like you wish you had brought a jacket. And the other elves see Elrond shiver like one time and flip the fuck out and just imagine:
Dennor au where Mathias adopts a baby Emil and loves him so much and he doesn’t understand how anyone could ever give him up so when Emil is older he promises to avenge him and find his former guardian to shove in their face how perfect Emil is (which Emil is opposed to but Mathias doesn’t listen to him) and the last listed guardian of Emil is this Lukas guy so Mathias goes to find him and when he does he’s surprised that he’s so young (like how old was he when he got some girl pregnant?) and he’s just sitting behind the desk at the library where he works and Mathias storms up and delivers some huge speech about what a big mistake Lukas made giving up his kid like that and Lukas just throws a book at Mathias’ head and hisses about how Mathias doesn’t know anything about him or his brother and then he rolls out from behind the desk and Mathias is like oh shit because Lukas is in a wheelchair and Emil is his brother and what is happening??? And he pesters Lukas to no end with apologies and questions until he finds out that their family was in a car crash and their parents died and Lukas tried but couldn’t take care of Emil because he was paralyzed from the waist down and it was too hard so he had to give him up to an orphanage and while this is happening Mathias slowly falls in love with Lukas and he invites him to come back and live with him and Emil and Lukas shyly accepts and Emil and him are super awkward at first but then they get along super well and they just become a big happy family the end
So I’m going at this with an assumption that when the Russian skaters were too young to live alone they lived with yakov and Lilia but basically what I’m saying is that when Georgi and Viktor were young teenagers they broke into lilia’s closet to try on her high heels and dresses
