STEREK FIC RECS - PART 1
Okay now that I have been in the fandom for a month or so, I have some fic recs (that no one asked for). I’m noticing a pattern…. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Taking Off the Edges by Ark
Summary: Scott’s regard turning completely away hurts more than the wounded, incredulous eyeballing. He’s bright red to the tips of his ears, and his hands are balled up tight into fists. “Tell me what the hell you were going to tell me, then,” Scott says. He’s not looking at Stiles anymore, so Derek’s the one who answers.“That we’re paired,” says Derek, calmly and decisively, from over Stiles’s shoulder. Explicit, 8.7K
Commentary: So beautifully written. And bottom!Derek (a pattern for me, tbh); hot, funny, perfect.
By Any Other Name by entanglednow
Summary: 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. Explicit, 33K+
Commentary: This is probably one of my favorite fics; it’s really, really beautiful and so different from other things I’ve read.
Howlin’ For You by Lenore
Summary: A college AU with strippers, crime bosses, and a mystery to solve. Explicit, 33K+
Commentary: GREAT FIC A++, and a totally bomb bottom!derek scene. Stripper fics aren’t really my thing but please read this, you won’t regret it.
headlong (I’m falling in a) by hits
Summary: Kink meme fill: When Stiles goes to college, for some reason, he has to share an apartment with Derek, which sucks, because Derek still hates him the most. They fall in love. Explicit, 80K+
Commentary: This is an interesting fic that really explores Derek’s more wolfish nature and pack culture in ways I hadn’t really considered before; plus there is a lot of great sex. It’s kind of weird, and I like that.
The Alexandria Solution by Bexless
Summary: "I accept your body!“ Stiles says hurriedly. "I accept you. Sexually.” There is a pause. Derek says, “Thanks.” Explicit, 5.3K+ words
Commentary: I think we all need a light-hearted knotting fic in our lives.
The one that’s a little bit party of five by kellifer_fic
Summary: He does a casual three-sixty and catches the gaze of a glowering werewolf with thick eyebrows and a strong jaw. The guy has artful stubble going on and he looks like he’s pissed off at the room, but especially at Stiles and Stiles can roll with that. Lydia wouldn’t have called attention to him if he hadn’t been Stiles’ type.His sister is good like that. NC-17, 50K+
Commentary: This is like Sterek meets Shameless. It’s pretty fucking hilarious and a very well-done slow build. So many warm fuzzies for the fic. AND the kids are great.
Pretty In Tents by Kellifer_fic
Summary: Even though he’s making fun of it, Stiles thinks the whole thing sounds awesome and, like most stuff these days, the experience is going to be totally wasted on Scott. Mature, 7.6K+
Commentary: Fake relationship is one of my favorite tropes and this one is expertly done. It’s hot and intelligent and just a fun ride.
Stand Fast in Your Enchantments by DevilDoll
Summary: “Stiles knew damn well what a pissed-off wolf sounded like, and every hair on the back of his neck was telling him that somewhere in this room was a very pissed-off werewolf.” An AU in which Derek is feral, Stiles is magical, and they eat a lot of fast food. NC-17, 76K+
Commentary: This summary, I feel, is misleading. There is much depth to this fic; Stiles and Derek are kidnapped and fall in love along the way. Great switching scenes, also bottom!derek for the win.
Relationship Status: It’s Complicated by kellifer_fic
Summary: Okay, I know this is a huge stretch for you, but can you please pretend you’re like, into me? Mature, 4K+
Commentary: Again w/ the fake relationship. Hot college bar scene, Derek protects Stiles from an ex. Perfection, basically.
One Life Stand by Vendelin
Summary:Stiles is used to selling himself to make ends meet. But it’s getting harder to keep those ends meeting, and there’s only so much of Stiles to go around. Until a too-fancy car shows up in his neighborhood, and he meets Derek Hale.All Derek wants is Stiles’s time, someone to stay on his arm for events and smile for the cameras. It’s the easiest job Stiles has ever had, the best-paying one he’s ever had, and he’s more than happy to sign up.Derek is everything and nothing Stiles expects him to be, with his tailored suits, sharp mind and his quiet way of caring. But it’s just a job and Stiles never meant to fall in love. Explicit, 84K
Commentary: The Pretty Woman AU we all need. It’s way better than that, actually. I’m not usually into fics that feature prostitution, but it’s really minor on that aspect and really big on the Sterek. READ IT.
