25 and 27 (I know there's prob a lot, but obv any faves are fine lol)
favorite line you’ve ever written
Oh man. I don’t know?! It’s like my mind went completely blank & I’m sitting here going “Uh, I write? What’s that?” LOL But, okay, this is actually a passage I wrote for the last part of Werewolf Married, and it continues to be one of my favorite things ever.
“Wow. Okay. So.” Scott clears his throat and grins. “My emissary has accepted a mating bond with Alpha Derek Hale. I approve of this bond, and they have the support of my pack for so long as they both request it.”
Stiles can hear people whispering, and he squeezes Derek’s hand because, well, he’s got one last surprise. Lydia and Allison have brought Laura, Cora, Derek’s older brothers, and Derek’s parents up front by the stage, and they’re now standing by Stiles’ dad and Jackson. He looks at Scott and nods.
“This is my first time doing this, so I hope you can be patient with me,” Scott says, smiling despite his obvious nervousness. He’s never much enjoyed public speaking, and Stiles loves him a lot for doing this for him. “Stiles and Derek aren’t really traditional, but I think it’s only right to start them off towards their future together with a customary beginning. Dearly beloved, we are gathered here today to celebrate the union of Derek and Stiles.”
Derek squeezes Stiles’ hand tight as murmurings and whispers erupt behind them. He looks at Stiles and gapes at him. “Seriously?”
“What? Like either of us want a long engagement?” Stiles bites his lip. “Uh, surprise?”
“Stiles, what the hell’s going on?” His dad asks amidst the chatter from their guests.
Stiles turns to look at his dad and everyone else. “I asked Derek to marry me. Human married. He said yes. In the event of him accepting, I had a phase three to put into motion. Scott’s legally ordained, and he’s going to marry us now, with everyone we love and care about here to witness it.”
“Derek, are you alright with this?” Talia asks as she looks at him.
“Yes, I am,” Derek tells her, laughing softly. “I can’t believe…Stiles…you…but, yes, I want this. He’s right. Who needs a long engagement when we know this is what we want? Scott, please continue.”
“Sure.” Scott nods. “I assume there aren’t any objections to this marriage?” He sounds slightly threatening, not that anyone objects. “Good. There’s a bunch of formal scripts that I was given when I got ordained, but none of those seem to fit Stiles and Derek, so I’m going to wing it. Stiles never believed in soulmates, didn’t think destiny was a real thing, and thought that he’d never be loved the way he deserves. Then he met Derek. I don’t know Derek that well yet, but he makes Stiles happy, and he’s a great guy who loves completely, who gives all of himself to take care of others, and I think meeting Stiles has made him happy, too.”
“You’re doing great, buddy,” Stiles tells him, sharing a smile with Derek, who still looks pretty shocked. He knows it’s a lot to take in, that he probably should haven’t been more patient and waited, but he wants to be married to Derek now, so why not go for it?
“Thanks!” Scott beams. “These two are true mates, which is a rare and special thing for werewolves, but they also took the time to get to know each other, to not rush into anything just because of the mating thing, to fall in love in a way that could be written about in those sappy romance novels Liam and Kira are always reading.”
“I think these two are sappier than my books!” Liam calls out, grinning when Stiles sticks his tongue out at him.
“Those of us who live here have had the pleasure of watching these two stubborn assholes fall in love. Derek’s refused to let Stiles push him away, and Stiles has realized that love happens organically, that it grows and develops in ways you can’t predict.” Scott smiles at them. “And tonight, well, this morning, we’re here to witness them giving themselves to each other in a serious and life-altering way. True love really is the greatest thing in the world, and they’re proof of that.” Scott looks at Stiles and actually tears up. “Love, true love, will follow you forever, so treasure your love.”
“Skip to the end,” Stiles whispers, wiping his eyes because, damn Scott, he had to get all serious and quote Princess Bride without the silly accent.
best review you ever got
Every review is amazing. I love every reblog with tags and every comment, whether it’s a simple <3 or a longer review. Off the top of my head, the following review sticks out from more recent ones because it led me to posting here about amazing readers & what comments can mean to us writers:
I am so happy you put your series on Ao3! I was having a conversation with a friend about our all time favorite fic and this series immediately came to mind. I remember when the reboot came out in 2009 and originally reading this series on livejournal. I would constantly check for a new chapter and then stay up until the wee hours of the morning reading it- that’s how much I loved this series! You’re brilliant and I just want to say thank you so much! I can’t wait to read it again :)
