Notes: OMG. IT WAS SO HAPPY MAKING I CAN’T EVEN! I was smiling all the time and my face hurts now and I just love this story, okay. The humor was great and THE FEELS. All of them. IT WAS PURE JOY.

Two days later, Mr. Hale’s brother is climbing through his window. “I have a door,” he says, sounding more petulant than he’d intended.
“And a very convenient window. Or is that only access granted to my nephew?” Peter bounces down next to him on his bed, and Stiles considers that for a moment before shaking his head.
