Anything with the words HEAVY ANGST immediately calls Angsty in like a…beacon.
HAHA DID I JUST MAKE A TEEN WOLF REFERENCE YES I DIDDDD
*coughs* So anyway. We have some Hurt!Stiles here, here, and here (OR our Hurt!Stiles tag), but none of these are a straight-up angsty Hurt!Stiles list, so let’s fix that now, yeah?

The Cost of Your Magic by ToriTC198
(6,260 I Teen I Complete)
Derek spun around on his heel in panic when the smell of Stiles’ blood hit him. It took a moment to process what was going on but then the four werewolves attacking the pack were suddenly spewing black and Stiles started grinning triumphantly.
Or the one where Stiles finds magic, a kind that demands a price be paid for each spell, and Derek starts to notice the cost Stiles pays.

You don’t know how strong you are, until being strong is the only choice you have, Derek’s mother used to say.
At the time, he didn’t understand what she had meant.
Now, staring at the wall of the hospital waiting room he was sitting in, and listening to Stiles’ pulse spike and plummet over and over again as the doctors and nurses worked on him in ICU, he could say he now understood what his mom was talking about all those years ago.
Or, the one where Stiles gets injured trying to protect Derek.

“Do you even know why a wolf howls? It’s a signal. When a wolf’s alone, it howls to signal its location to the rest of the pack.”
The whole situation bothers Derek more than it should. It’s just - it’s just Stiles.Who cares if he shows up to training or not - he’s not pack.
He is not pack.
False Dawn (Stiles, it’s called zodiacal light) by ElisAttack
(11,145 I Explicit I Complete I Amnesia and Immortal!Stiles)
Stiles wakes up in the middle of the woods with no memory of how he got there.
Or the one where Stiles can’t die, but people keep hurting him anyway.
Into The Woods by TheTypewriterGirl
(23,376 I Teen I Complete)
While he and Derek are solving a mystery in the woods, Stiles is unexpectedly injured… And loosing blood fast. Will the stubbly, eye-rolling werewolf be able to get him back to safety in time? Along the way, the pair may discover they don’t despise the other as much as they think they do… As always: whump, bromance, and Sterek.
Derek rolled his eyes for what must have been the tenth time that day, stubbly chin crinkling with the strain of maintaing an extra-deep scowl for the past half hour. A mild headache had slowly mounted over those thirty minutes; the result of trying desperately to drown out the ceaseless stream of enthusiastic babble spewing from the mouth of the lanky teen walking ahead of him.
“Do you ever shut up?”
“Sourwolf, you should know by now that I really don’t.”
Tell me all your weaknesses by marshmallowfluff
(24,333 I Teen I Complete I Warning: Torture)
“Stiles did not normally start his afternoon with a stranger in the back of his Jeep, telling him to ‘Be quiet and don’t do anything stupid, or you’ll never see your precious father again.’”
Stiles isn’t very good at being quiet, and when has he ever not done something stupid?
In which Stiles is kidnapped by a Hunter with a vicious streak and a penchant for torture, and Derek (and Scott) is having none of that.
Among Sudden Betrayals by bemusedonion
(30,177 I Teen I Complete)
There’s something wrong with Stiles and it’s up to his friends to figure how to save him.
A story of really bad plans, demons, sarcastic uncles and daddy issues.
Watch the world burn by Skrigget

“When we were sure you were going to survive,” Derek explains, “we had to tell him what had happened.”
“What had happened,” Stiles repeats in a strange, hallow tone of voice as he stares out of the window.
“Stiles,” Lydia says and steps closer. “You’re okay now.”
“You’re lying,” he whispers.
The pack is kidnapped and horrible things take place. When Stiles awakes from his coma he realizes that just because they’re not being held captive it doesn’t mean all their problems are over. Far from, actually. It seems like being kidnapped was just the beginning.
Nothing will ever be the same.

The first time was a warning. The second time was for shits and giggles. The third time was for observation. The fourth time was for research.
Enjoy the tears (yesssssssss the whump!),
