Team Rivalry~ Aaron Judge imagine

Aaron’s intentions are pure, however your overprotective friends think other wise (word count: 1600+)


You currently had an internship in Boston which was perfect because it just so happened that your cousin Dustin Pedroia played for the Boston Red Sox.

You were close to your cousin Dustin and grew to be really close friends with the some of the players on the team especially Andrew Benintendi and Xander Bogaerts.

Dustin’s family invited you and the rest of his teammates over for a simple barbecue on Thursday night.

Dustin stood up making a toast, “let’s beat those Yankees this weekend!”

The Red Sox and Yankees were getting ready to face off in the three-game series at Fenway Park. The Red Sox vs Yankees games were always the ones to watch because of the huge team rivalry. The boys were excited for the series and you were too because you were finally going to see Aaron Judge again.

You and Aaron had met at a small party awhile back when you were visiting your friend, Brooke in New York City. The two of you instantly hit it off, you thought he was really funny and sweet. Brooke even claimed the two of you would be perfect for each other and that it was a shame that you couldn’t come out to New York more often.  

You and Aaron had been texting for a while now, but it was hard for you to ever see him in person because you were currently living in Boston. The two of you had plans to meet for lunch tomorrow.

“Y/N?” Andrew called you, breaking you out of your little day dream about Aaron.

“What?” you asked.

“Caught you thinking,”  he said taking a swig of his drink, “…Got any plans before the game tomorrow?”

You smiled, “yeah, actually I’m going to lunch with Aaron Judge.”

Andrew looked up at you, “Is that so?” he said playfully pushing your shoulder.

“Yes, but don’t tell Dustin, he can get a little over protective sometimes.” you said.

“Don’t tell Dustin what?” Xander asked walking over to you guys.

“Oh Y/N is just going on date with the enemy.” Andrew said, looking over at you with a smile on his face.

“Enemy?” Xander asked.

“The Aaron Judge” Andrew told Xander.

“It’s just lunch, ok?” you said.

Andrew leaned back in his chair crossing his arms, “how do you even know him?”

“He’s a friend of a friend,” you said.

“Well I don’t trust him,” Xander said in a serious tone.

“Come on, he’s a good guy,” Andrew reassured Xander.

“If you say so,” Xander replied.

May 20, 1976

A shoving match, after a home-plate collision between Lou Piniella and Red Sox catcher Carlton Fisk, escalates into an ugly bench-clearing brawl. Yankee third baseman Graig Nettles and Boston’s Bill Lee fight so fiercely that the ‘Spaceman’ suffers a separation of his left shoulder, greatly affecting the remainder of his pitching career.

honestly the vast majority of POC i know have an open problem with cultural appropriation and you're coming off as full of shit to me tbh. you're trying to frame it as if it's a tiny group that has a problem and not the other way around. your entire position relies on ignoring what the white man has done for the past 600 years. nobody is getting mad over croissants because france never experienced racially-charged-toward-them imperialism, and french people are not systematically oppressed here

Uh huh, lmao. I imagine that somewhere in New York City you can find a bar thats decked out in Red Sox symbols and during Yankee vs Red Sox games I’m sure if you stepped inside you would be surrounded by very vocal Red Sox fans. That doesnt make the statement “New Yorkers are Red Sox fans” a correct one.

So you said this

>the vast majority of POC i know have an open problem with cultural appropriation

and also this

>you’re trying to frame it as if it’s a tiny group that has a problem and not the other way around

Are you trying to claim that you know the vast majority of POC in the world? Lmfao like buddy you are part of the problem right here because you are not seeing people you are seeing a series of authoritative texts and are talking like a cleric arguing with a cleric of a different religious about whose holy book is valid. I’m not trying to flip the “This position is the AUTHENTIC VOICE of POC” mentality around I want it and its dehumanizing effects to be fucking abolished because its foundations are absurd. Now it can be awkward to communicate that I’m trying to reject this mentality rather than simply flip it on its head but that is what Im trying to do. You know that whole thing about “erasing voices” you’ve heard of? Thats what youre doing by doing an ostrich-impersonation and going “THE POC I KNOW APPROVE OF APPROPRIATION DISCOURSE THEREFORE MOST POC DO SO I SHOULD IGNORE ALL OUTLIERS” 


Also heads up there actually are plenty of times when people that push this shit end up accidentally saying that they might not represent the majority opinion. Like when people pull the whole “DO NOT listen to people from Asia on cultural issues they are servile idiots” thing like they obviously are not saying that about people they assume agree with them

Anonymous said: Could you maybe update the Sports tag? If it’s baseball better!

UGH the pics from Everybody Wants Some and Undrafted are making me SO thirsty for Baseball Player!Derek.  These couldn’t have come at a better time.  This list is a mix of the pack playing baseball and Baseball Player Aus, Batter up!  -Emmy <3

It’s the first practice of spring training, and Derek realizes the new rookie, Stiles Stilinski, is going to make things interesting.

College baseball AU. What even is Stiles’ life.

Scott shows Stiles a picture of the new pitcher for the Dodgers, and Stiles is suddenly an avid Dodgers fan.

Take Me Out To The Ballgame by zjofierose

It’s all fun and games until someone catches a baseball with their face, Stiles.

Dirt Lots and Backstops by Onlymystory 

(8,653 I Teen I Complete)

Written for Holly, who won one of my Sterek Campaign fics. Her request was “Sterek and baseball. Canon, not AU. Bonus for cheesy innuendos and the appearance of the San Francisco Giants.” Chapter 2 has the second bonus.

From the sidelines, Derek waved a hand. “You sure you want to pitch, Stiles? It doesn’t seem like your position.”
“I’m pretty flexible actually,” smirked Stiles. “But, I mean, as fun as catching can be, I’d rather pitch as a general rule.”
“Are we still talking about baseball?” Isaac rolled his eyes.
Stiles flashed him a grin. “Everyone handles balls a little differently, pup.”
“Oh my god,” muttered Erica.

Out of His League by Scikopathik 

(11,040 I Explicit I Complete)

Derek’s going to be the best ballplayer ever, if Stiles doesn’t kill him first. Or vice versa.

In which Stiles is a personal trainer, and Derek is the shortstop for the LA Dodgers.

You Can Cry Wolf, But Stop Running by iamursforevrmre 

(16,615 I Explicit I Complete)

Derek Hale is the third baseman for the Los Angeles Dodgers. Stiles doesn’t know why he has an apparent thing for third basemen and he has no clue why he’s even watching the Dodgers. He’s a Mets fan.

Sox and Bombers by Nanoochka 

(17,449 I Explicit I Complete)

They didn’t normally discuss their games in deference to the sanctity of their respective teams and the ancient Yankees/Red Sox rivalry, but Derek had to admit it was nice to combine shoptalk and pillow talk with someone who understood. Still, Stiles was the enemy, even if Derek did spend an awful lot of time consorting with him. If by consorting you meant fucking him into the mattress.

Take Two and Hit To Right by gottalovev 

(21,521 I Explicit I Complete)

Stiles enjoys ogling the very handsome shortstop of the varsity team while in class. One day, when he cannot have the seat he prefers to watch the baseball diamond, he starts a conversation on his desk (including cartoon characters and eventually sharing secrets).

Unfortunately, Stiles’ first meeting with the hot shortstop - crowd darling Derek Hale - doesn’t go well. When Hale turns out to be Stiles’ desk pen pal, will they be able to move past first impressions?

Everybody Wants Some Sterek by Electricviolinist, Marbleeyes     

(26,262 I Mature I Complete)

Loosely based on Everyone Wants Some. Stiles thought College was going to be a hundred times better than High School, especially after winning a baseball scholarship. It was a shame that he’d forgotten about his hidden talent of pissing off everyone he meets, especially a certain green-eyed team mate.

Beacon Hills Sandlot by Fanfiction_is_Literature 

(31,934 I Teen I Complete)

Stiles was just an average kid who had moved to Beacon Hills from San Francisco. He had no intention of fitting in to Beacon Hills, but a neighbor kid dragged him along to play baseball at an empty sandlot. Derek Hale ends up teaching Stiles a lot about both baseball and life.A Sandlot AU for Teen Wolf. I wanted one and I couldn’t find any so here :)

Reports of A Lover’s Tryst by CharWright5 

(32,442 I Explicit I Complete)

New York Mets shortstop Derek Hale was riding the high of being his team’s hero on Opening Day, only to have it come crashing down the very next day when pictures leak of him acting more than friendly with his roommate Stiles Stilinski. Now, not only is Derek outed before he wanted, but he’s also a target for more harassment and suddenly single after accusations fly over how the media caught wind of his secret relationship. And he’d thought his biggest issue during the season would be questions over a rumored contract extension and impending free agency.

This Might Be Irony by thepsychicclam 

(38,340 I Mature I Complete)

Stiles and Derek have been close friends since the Hale siblings moved in next door after their parents’ death. But Derek’s in the popular group, he’s a star baseball player, and he dates popular Pep Squad captain Jennifer Blake. Stiles doesn’t have any of that, just his skateboard and a hopeless crush on Derek (oh yeah, and his Vote Lydia Martin Prom Queen button). As prom and the baseball state championship grow closer, Stiles and Derek start rekindling their friendship.

And it all begins with two white boards.

Catching The Wolf by  LPI3

(62,511 I Mature I WIP)

Stiles figured his first year of college would involve lots of studying, friends, and warming the bench on the ball field. He never figured he would be thrown behind the plate to catch the legendary ace pitcher Derek Hale. Now Stiles is just trying to survive the season and figure out what Derek is hiding.
