there are some famous!Sterek fics around fandom, which are awesome and GREAT (and seriously please write more), but consider this: famous!Derek and paparazzi!Stiles (or the other way around).
paparazzi!Stiles who honestly just wants an opportunity to be part of some cool magazine or journal. he’s been living in NY with Scott, but Scott is about to move in with Allison and Stiles sees this opportunity to move to LA, because that’s where the big celebrities are, Scott. and the first week he’s there, it goes so so so wrong. until he gets a shot of famous actor Derek Hale leaving some fancy shop and Stiles decides to follow him. Derek is a talented actor and fans seem to love him, but every paparazzi knows how dangerous Derek can be. that’s why no one dares to get too close to him unless they’re called for it or at some big event, but Stiles has always been stubborn and seriously, he NEEDS this. if he can manage to sneak some real gossip from big star Derek Hale, he gets a free card to lots of places.
so he follows Derek and like, everyone comments on how close off Derek is and how he sometimes comes out as rude and arrogant, even though fans love that bad boy vibe about him. so it confuses Stiles a lot when he sees Derek doing things that are never reported to the press, at all. like helping an old lady cross the street, give his food to a homeless man, scare off bullies of some kid and give him some ice cream, donate money to the dog’s shelter and actually stay there to pet some of them. Stiles is just… he has all these photos of Derek doing these things and he doesn’t know what to do with them. he kind of… wants to keep them. he wants to keep them for himself.
worst part is when Derek goes on dates with his girlfriend. not because a bunch of other paparazzi show up mysteriously, but because the whole thing seems awfully fake. Derek smiles a lot, but it doesn’t come close to the smile he gave to the old lady, or the homeless man, or the kid, or the dogs. it’s really not and Stiles has pictures to prove it. but it’s during one of those dates that Stiles is able to get closer and mix with the rest of the paparazzi. Derek looks at him and smiles and even though Stiles knows he’s just being polite, he still melts and his heart skips a beat.
Stiles was suppose to take photos of Derek, not fall in love with him, dammit. seriously give me all the fics of famous and paparazzi Sterek falling in love
