Teen Wolf AU: So Stiles’ original plan of insinuating himself into every aspect of Derek’s life and making Derek fall in love with him - mostly by just being everywhere all the time - might not have worked as well as anticipated because Derek is a paranoid bastard, but from where Stiles is standing it looks like it all went okay anyway.
Inspired by this post, except that it got sappier.
In a world in which the Hales are alive and healthy, Derek grew up to be a very self-confident kind of cocky college student who enjoys living life to the fullest and not denying himself simple pleasures; like drinking with his fratboy buddies, playing sports, or, you know, gangly, awkward, sarcastic and nerd-tastic teenagers who catch his eye. Stiles is just here to study, thank you very much. He’s not going to be distracted by unfairly good-looking, charming and kind of arrogant fellow students who think the world revolves around them. He's not. Even when he discovers Derek isn’t half as dumb and a billion times nicer than he originally thought.
Except he sort of does fall into his bed, and Stiles swears, it was just to get Derek out of his system and off his back. Derek can stop following Stiles around now that he’s won whatever stupid bet he’d probably made that got Stiles on his radar in the first place, and Stiles can go back to studying in peace, without stupid fratboys chatting him up at every turn. It’s better that way. It didn’t even mean anything, really. So why the hell does it hurt so much?
