If it tickles your fancy, i'd DIE to read this! :) "our parents are forcing us into an arranged marriage and we hate each other but now i’m in love with you and i don’t think it’s mutual"
Stiles understands. He understands, but that doesn’t mean he has to like it. It, of course, being his impending marriage to Derek Hale.
He understands because he’s the son of a spark and a human and a spark himself and Derek is the eldest son of the Hales, an incredibly famous werewolf family. (If they were really giving full effort, he should’ve been marrying Laura, but he and has dad agreed it was better to let bygones be bygones instead of starting a fight).
It’s not like the Hales are bad people. Once Scott got bit by a rogue werewolf and became one himself, the Hales welcomed him and anyone he cared about with open arms.
However, the rest of the nonsupernatural community didn’t quite see it that way. Tension built and attacks from both sides began less than six months later.
Beacon Hills has always been complicated. The whole world has, but now it feels like a constant power struggle between the two sides.
But very few even want to be fighting, some do, some want to wipe out the entire other side, but most people are just scared.
That’s where Stiles comes in.
Sparks aren’t deemed supernatural by most people since their skills all lie in harnessing power from something. It’s not magic, none of it just happens.
However, they are also some of the only people who can defend themselves against the supernatural. Of course, anyone can learn how to fight the supernatural, but becoming a hunter takes years and years of training. They also tend to be the least okay with the supernatural.
Which is why Stiles is now hours away from his wedding. Because this marriage is the last chance to show everyone that the two communities can coexist and more than that they can thrive together.
So Stiles understands. It just sucks.
He’s barely spoken to Derek since the years since he’s met him. He’s pretty good friends with both Cora and Laura at this point so he doesn’t know why he’s not marrying one of them.
It isn’t like he didn’t try either. Ever since they even began talking about this as a solution, Stiles would try to talk to Derek, but Derek would usually just ignore him or glare at him until Stiles left.
That’s fine. Stiles doesn’t really care if his husband-to-be likes him or not, but he does care that they have to prove to the community that this can work.
He doesn’t want to think about what will happen if they don’t.
He jerks out of his reverie when he hears a knock at the door.
Scott slowly opens the door and peeks in the room. “Hey, man, it’s almost time.”
“As ready as I can ever be.”
Scott pulls him into a hug before leading him outside under the moon.
They decided to keep this as intimate as possible. If everyone’s going to be keeping a close eye on their marriage, the best they can do is offer than a private wedding.
This means that it’s just his dad, Scott and Melissa for him and Talia, Laura, and Cora for Derek.
Neither Stiles or Derek bothered with suits, going instead for casual for the werewolf part of the ceremony.
His dad tries to shoot him an encouraging look, but Stiles keeps his eyes firmly focused on where needs to stand next to Derek in front of Deaton.
He doesn’t turn to make eye contact with Derek, but he can tell from his peripheral vision that Derek doesn’t either.
“While I am well-versed on werewolf weddings, I had to get my officiating permission online,” Deaton jokes.
Stiles hears polite chuckles from behind them, but he doesn’t think either he or Derek let out a breath.
“Let’s keep this quick. Stiles, do you take Derek to be your lawfully wedded husband?”
