rock star angst

Ahhh, this is a super belated post but now that identities have been revealed for the Reylo Gift Exchange 2016, this is my valentine’s gift for Inkpress00 who requested a modern day AU!

Just chillin’ with their fav mugs and an overly symbolic and totally impractical ombre scarf :P (also Rey’s giant marshmallow is a sort of homage to her amazing magic bread… ( ๑‾̀◡‾́)b)

Eyes That Know

Summary: The reader is a rock star with heavy addiction issues.  Sam is a former rocker who has been to rehab and been sober for a number of years.  When the two meet at a party sparks fly and they fall into a romance.  After losing one girlfriend to addiction, Sam can’t do it again and makes the reader choose between him and her drugs.  

Author: revwinchester

Pairing/Characters: Sam Winchester x Reader, Lucifer, Dean Winchester, Adam Milligan, Jimmy Novak, Ruby, Amelia Richardson

Word Count: 5697, including lyrics (which are italicized throughout)

Warnings: talk and use of soft and hard drugs, implied prostitution, cocaine overdose, major character deaths, mention of minor character death, mental illness - specifically addiction, anxiety, and depression, all the angst.  Also, one of the character deaths could be read as suicide - though it’s not intended to be one - and the song lyrics mention the historical suicide of Vincent Van Gogh.

A/N: This ended up being for two challenges and it is the angstiest thing I have ever written.  I cried while I wrote it.  First, @nichelle-my-belle is hosting Nichelle’s 4K Angst Challenge and my prompt was “if you kill all my demons, my angels might die too.”  I was looking for a song to frame the fic when @thing-you-do-with-that-thing announced the SPN Anti-Valentine’s Challenge and I saw one of the prompts was “Josh Groban - Starry Night,” which is a cover of Don McLean’s “Vincent,” a song I absolutely love.  You can bet I snapped that one up real quick! Click on each of the links to head to youtube for two different versions of the song.  They are so different but each are beautiful in their own right (though, if you’ve never heard it before, I recommend you start with the original).

AN ABSOLUTE ALL-TIME FAV, Can’t rec it enough:

Play Crack The Sky by WeAreTheCyclones (23/23 | 122,787 | Mature)

Excerpt from “Hale Pulls the Plug on the Future of Rock,” Rolling Stone, Issue 1203 – Oct. 2014
“Fans and music industry vets alike are left reeling in the wake of bassist Derek Hale’s sudden departure from Smokes for Harris. At a time when the foursome from Beacon Hills, California seems to be on the cusp of rock superstardom after just one double platinum record, Smokes has everything to lose.”

Excerpt from “Smokes for Harris: Gladiator,” SPIN.com – Feb. 2015
“Smokes for Harris gives in a little to the pop punk of yesteryear in their sophomore effort, but rather than pandering to fans of a lost era they elevate the genre in a way that hasn’t been seen in quite some time. Frontman Stiles Stilinski works double duty as singer and primary songwriter and proves that he can handle the task even without former bassist Derek Hale.“

Loveee this storyy! *Squeezes the heck out of this story*:  

I Wish I Could See You Soon by talktowater (1/1 | 23,259 | Explicit)

Derek Hale is one half of indie duo Girls and the Dogs. He spent his late teens drinking and fucking his way around small clubs over the world, but now he is sober, sick of touring, and has rules. Or one rule at least, no hook ups on tour.

When the guy with the impossibly tight t-shirt who calls himself Stiles follows him back to his bus one night after a show in London, he’s in no danger of breaking his rules because as Stiles quite categorically states, he is straight. Right… good luck with that Derek…

Derek reading gay romance novels is everything I didn’t know I needed:

Broken Sundown by Anonymous (1/1 | 19,401 | Explicit)

Punk rock star Derek Hale is irritated when his new roommate in rehab turns out to be squeaky-clean Stiles Stilinski, the drummer for the hottest boy band in the U.S. Not even his favorite gay romance novel can distract him from what follows. Rock star AU, angst and addictions, alpha!Derek, mates.

D’aww:

Late Night Basement Songs by melfice (1/1 | 8,233 | Teen)

Band AU. They’re still nobodies when Laura Hale hears them, when she asks them to open for her band at their show in Lincoln, Nebraska. Which is a little terrifying and extremely exciting and it’s the first real gig they book. It’s also the first time that Stiles meets Derek.

Glorious Perfection!:

Anonymous: Please please please could you do this prompt for sterek please with lots of mutual pining?! we were both drunk when you proposed to me and i accidentally posted it across social media so now we’re hungover and trying to figure out this mess bc we’re not even dating

Musician Derek:

Hot! Everything is perfect and hot!:

AND IS DEREK THE ROCKSTAR PERFORMING STILES’S LYRICS

DO THEY HAVE HOT BACKSTAGE SEX

SOMEONE WRITE ME THIS AU DAMMIT

So much adorableness i could DIEE:

I Call You Names Because I Love You by tylerfucklin (1/1 | 13,025 | Mature)

Years of touring with Stiles would never have prepared Derek for the day his beloved techie fell in love with someone else.

No sleep was had binging on this fic:

Here’s to the Static by matildajones (18/18 | 80,890 | Teen)

Stiles spends most of his college break in a coffee house where he stares after Derek Hale. For some reason, Stiles is unaware of the fact he’s quite the musician, and Derek amuses himself at Stiles’ obliviousness.

A rollercoaster ride! So so good!:  

*You Belong With Me by adult_disneyprincess (1/1 | 10,638 | Mature)

“You don’t know Derek Hale.” Lydia says, and Stiles shakes his head while looking at the file in front of him. “He is one of the biggest music stars in the world. Bisexual heartthrob for boys and girls alike.” She says, and she even waves her hands a little.

“Stalker?” He asks, and she makes a noise of agreement.

“So what is the Derek Hale doing at my lonely little private eye in the middle of nowhere?” Stiles says, and he flips through the file that really doesn’t tell him anything.

Tissues are a necessity! Gorgeous!:

Pretty Melody by thepsychicclam (1/1 | 30,501 | Explicit)

Stiles hasn’t seen Derek in six years, so when he shows up at the bar where Stiles works, claiming to be some indie rock star, Stiles can’t believe it. Stiles has even more trouble believing that he and Derek are about to have a one night stand.

Soon one night turns into two and three, and seeing Derek causes old wounds to open for Stiles. As Stiles reconnects with Derek, he finds himself painting things he’s been avoiding, and he thinks maybe he’ll finally start to heal.

The cutesttttt:

Teardrops on My Guitar by hazelNuts (1/1 | 3,895 | Teen)

anonymous asked, "i always see you in the library and i think you’re really cute so i leave you little post it notes on your work whenever you go and get a book just to see you blush au”

Stiles got the first note the night before his mid-term. A post-it note was attached to his laptop screen. Go to bed. You’ll do fine.

Awesome-sauce:

‘Linski’s Late Night Antidote To Lame by WhoNatural (1/1 | 13,865 | Teen)

Where Stiles has his own college radio show, and the mysterious, faceless Derek is his number one fan.

Also there’s this really hot guy he keeps meeting in the library who totally hates his guts.

The definition of perfect:

The Last Song I’ll Write About You by WhoNatural (1/1 | 1,890 | NR)

“So his face sells records, is what you’re saying,” she says, and yeah, he’s been talking about the jerkwad for most of his lunch break, but that’s no reason for her to get that glint in her eye. “You must think it’s a pretty marketable face, if it can make someone’s debut album go triple-platinum in the span of two months.”

Precious:

Unchained Melody by uraneia (2/2 | 5,195 | Explicit)

Derek is an Elvis impersonator. Stiles is the sound and lighting engineer in charge of his show. Over sequins, hip swivels, and 50s ballads, they fall in love.

Rock-n-roll!:

*Kiss Me, then Kiss Me Again by tryslora (1/1 | 1,745 | Teen)

No one mentioned the crowd surfing when they convinced Stiles to join them seeing Wolf Pack.

OR

The one where Stiles manages to crowd surf right onto stage and into Derek’s arms… and Derek doesn’t seem to mind at all.

Bromance and romance<33:

This Is How We Go by skoosiepants (2/2 | 5,744 | Teen)

Scott and Stiles go on the Warped Tour with Allison’s band.

Hellll to the yesss:

Pony by alisvolatpropiis (1/1 | 1,573 | Mature)

In which acoustic musician Derek Hale seduces Stiles with a modern R&B classic.

Musician Stiles:

Love everything!!:

It’s Not So Hard to Make That Sound by Flinched (1/1 | 5,503 | Teen)

There’s something about his voice that sort of slices Derek in two because it’s so real and personal. He’s followed his music for almost 7 months and as of last week, MovieKidd826 had 11 uploads, 68, 250 subscribers and over 2, 448, 989 views on Lenders in the Temple alone. Now there are suddenly 14 videos and Derek’s irrationally pissed off that he missed them.

When Stiles left for NYU just over two years ago, Derek told himself that Stiles deserved to have a werewolf-free life, but he couldn’t help looking forward to their weekly Skype chats. That kind of became his routine; talking to Stiles on Wednesday, and checking MovieKidd’s channel every Monday and Thursday.

Of course they just had to go and be the same person, didn’t they?

Heartbreaking:

*Don’t Belong to No City, Don’t Belong to No Man by alisvolatpropiis (1/1 | 091 | Not Rated)

He’s still beautiful.

Extraordinarily, mysteriously so: that guileful kind of beauty that sneaks up on the poor fool lucky enough to recognize it, a peculiar constellation of dazzling features that, once recognized, become the only stars in the night sky.

That’s how it felt to Derek at least, during his fling with Stiles Stilinski, the musician who wandered into his bar late one night while on a break from his first national tour. Derek had no idea that the bewitching man was the next up-and-coming singer-songwriter the entire music industry was buzzing about. All he saw was the perfect storm of cocky, clumsy grace; disheveled hair and pink cupid’s bow lips that made him weak in the knees; bloodshot-but-still-glittering eyes the color of single malt scotch and even more intoxicating.

Hearteyes cuz soulmate aus:

Marks and Mics by DLanaDHZ (17/17 | 70,508 | Mature)

Hale siblings Derek and Laura have been hired to run security for Stiles Stilinski’s music tour. Business as usual, except someone is trying really hard to prove they’re incapable and hurt Stiles. Derek finds himself curious about Stiles’ bitter attitude and a strange illness that plagues the singer. And on top of that, Derek’s soulmate remains elusive.

Precious adorable boys!:

*dirty little secret by allhalethekings (1/1 | 2,596 | General)

It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to realize that when it comes to matters of love, Stiles is a bit of a masochist. The whole Lydia debacle spoke for itself, really, and the whole crushing-on-Danny bit didn’t really help either. Let’s not even talk about the mind-numbing two-minute relationship with Malia.

So it stands to reason that of course he’d end up developing a huge crush on Derek, his bodyguard (he has a bodyguard! Stiles Stilinski has a goddamn bodyguard!).

Hilarious:

The Importance of Tight Jeans in a Boyband by defenselesswriter (4/4 | 9,526 | Explicit)

The Pack is a worldwide known boyband (They’re not a boyband, Derek. They’re just a band made up of boys, you uncultured swine).

Or in which Derek (not so)reluctantly goes to a The Pack concert with his sisters and falls in love.

Ohh the pining!!:

sing me a song, piano man by bleepobleep (1/1 | 2,223 | Teen)

Derek’s worked at McCall’s for three years, just about as long Stiles has been the pianist, and not once has Stiles ever sung a song about him.

Classical Music:

Beyond gorg:

Part of My Melody by hayesgeneration (5/5 | 21,772 | Mature)

Derek is a professional classical musician who has found himself lost without a muse, without goal and without even a hint of spark. He’s almost settled nearly contently (if not slightly unwillingly) on having to live his life as a recluse, when his sister finally grows tired of his antics, giving him a Christmas ultimatum.

Melting into a puddle of cute!! Just read it!!:

*Play it for Me by bioloyg (1/1 | 5,622 | Teen)

For the longest time it sat in the corner of his apartment hidden beneath a blanket, gathering dust. Sure, every once in a while he’d uncover it, tune it, and clean it off, but that was the extent of it. He could never force himself to sit down and play, get lost in the movements of his hands and the melody of a song.
~
OR the one where Derek is a landlord and plays piano and someone takes notice.

Who’s chopping onions?:

*filling me up with the shivers by teamfreewolf (1/1 | 2,470 | General)

Stiles does some digging into Derek’s past; he’s surprised by what he finds.

Romanze in F Major, Op. 85, for viola and orchestra by ravelqueen (1/1 | 4,467 | Teen) 

So Derek definitely doesn’t have a crush, but he may, maybe, possibly be a little bit interested in getting to know Stiles (biblically, Laura’s voice snickers in his head) better. Or at all.

Or the one where Derek plays the viola, Stiles is his conductor, but they are still just two stupid boys in love.

(Yes, it’s the Orchestra AU that no one was asking for.)

Super duper cute!:

*Gjallarhorn by LilyCissa (1/1 | 3,565 | Teen)

Tonight, The Triskele performed in a small pub near Stiles’ college, and for the first time, they could afford live music. They had called Loner, a small folk music trio from next town to play for them. Derek was the name of the flutist. It was like everything you could blow held no secrets for him : tin whistle, high and low; breton bombarde and of course, bagpipes. That was Stiles favorite instrument to hear. Well, at least, one of his faves. Stiles was the kind of guy to have a lot of favorite things.

Nerd love adorableness:  

*Derek Hale, Music Major by charimiel (1/1 | 1,431 | Gen.)

- and all around terrifying principal clarinet.

In which Stiles plays the Cello, Derek is a grumpy but amazing Clarinet player, and the whole music department is probably taking bets on when they’ll get together already.

Happy Reading!

House of Gold by  horchatita394, weathervaanes, wishingonalightningbolt (52k, band AU)

Derek, Isaac, Boyd, Erica, and Malia make up pop/rock/whatever-the-hell-we-wanna-play band, Side A/Side B. Erica, on a night off, “discovers” Stiles Stilinski playing in a packed bar in San Francisco. It’s pretty fair to say she changes his life.

-0-

“So,” Erica says, dropping down onto one of the empty plush arm chairs. Isaac and Boyd are inhabiting two others, and the fourth is empty, Derek standing in front of it with his arms crossed. “Did Malia show you the video?”

“I did,” Malia says, kicking her foot out to nudge Derek’s thigh. “He liked it, didn’t you, Der?”

“It was fine. But you,” he says, pointing at her like she’s about to get grounded, “aren’t a scout. Is this Peter? Did he put you up to this?”

If I Played You My Favorite Song by alisvolatpropiis (Series, 4k total, musician!Derek)

“Thank you, you’ve been a great crowd,” he purrs, reaching a tattooed hand up to adjust the microphone. “I’m going to finish with something a little different.” He laughs quietly to himself and rolls his broad, black v-neck-clad shoulders like he’s steeling himself, the first time all night he’s seemed nervous. “This is, uh, another cover, and I’ve never actually performed it…ever. But I feel like tonight’s the perfect night for it.” He laughs again and takes a deep breath. “So yeah, please continue to be kind, folks.” The crowd cheers and the singer – Derek Hale – gives this little sly smile as he fiddles with the strings of his guitar for a second, those unbelievable eyes flashing over to where Stiles has been sitting all night.

In which acoustic musician Derek Hale seduces Stiles with a modern R&B classic.

sometimes fate is like a small snowstorm by thepsychicclam (8k, pianist!derek)

In a coffee shop two days before Christmas, Derek meets Stiles. Despite neither of them being interested in relationships, they spend an unforgettable evening together, but then part ways. During the following years, Stiles competes in the Olympics, Derek tours the world - and neither of them forget. Then twelve years later, two days before Christmas, Derek finds Stiles in that same coffee shop.

Stiles’s life was so much easier before his BFF got super powers. “But, so, werewolves have super strength, right? And super speed. And better vision, and better muscle control, and healing powers, and stuff. And some of that’s probably, like, genetic, if you can be born a werewolf. Right?”

“Yeah,” Scott says. From the perplexed look on his face, he doesn’t yet know where Stiles is going with this. “So?”

“So what if you have condom-defeating supersperm?”

Stiles has a lot of research to do. He decides Derek’s kitchen is the place to do it. Derek probably regrets giving him a key.

Stiles doesn’t want Derek to spend his birthday alone. So he whips up a mean batch of brownies, puts on his red hoodie, and goes over to the Big Bad Wolf’s house with a picnic basket full of food. Because hey, growing Alphas need food. Good food. Specially on their birthday.

When it stays there for six years and no such Grzegorz appears, Derek seriously considers moving to Poland. 

Meanwhile, on Stiles’ eighteenth birthday when Derek crawls onto his skin, untidy and volatile, Lydia shrieks in sudden realization, and Jackson looks so entirely offended that even Danny can’t kiss him back to normal.

The Curse of Saint Valentine by llassah

Explicit

There are a few werewolves, largely dismissed as crocks by the general population, who claim that Valentine’s Day has been commercialized by werewolves who have infiltrated the card publishing industry in order to give people an explanation for the intense increase in overblown futile romantic gestures at this time of year. Werewolves, on the second full moon of the year, are overcome with both an intense physical desire and the overwhelming urge to woo their chosen mate. 

Derek Hale’s struck down by the Curse of Saint Valentine. It’s not all bad.

Love Is A Force Of Nature by Brego_Mellon_Nin

When Derek’s father sat him down for the sex talk when Derek was thirteen, he’d explained that werewolves felt things more intensely than humans when they found their mate.

So, even though Derek really wants Stiles, he holds back on his urges until Stiles is ready. As it happens, Stiles turns out to be an early bloomer.

The Walls Are Breathing In - Explicit - secondstar

Nothing could go wrong. It was just supposed to be a safe trip to the Nemeton. But this is Beacon Hills and things are rarely that simple. Welcome to the life of Stiles Stilinski.

Or, that time that Stiles accidentally became a sorcerer against his will.

A Good Thing - Explicit - Jerakeen

“I think it’s time to admit that I have this bizarre, weird, twisted thing for your dick.”

In Case The Daylight Never Comes - Explicit - plume_bob

There’s a relentless dark shape tearing through the pack and that’s only the half of it. Stiles just wants to sleep and stop being haunted by the faces of his night-time tormentors. His dad thinks he’s suffering from post-traumatic stress, Scott thinks he’s suffering the after-effects of the ritual; Stiles thinks they’re both reasonable theories, except for the part where Derek Hale is the only thing that can take his nightmares away and it seems that fact is no coincidence.

I Have Faith in Nights - Mature - DaintyBoots

Derek had always thought his ability to pick up strays was a bit of a hindrance. But then he met Stiles.

It’s How You Use It - Explicit - badwolfbadwolf

Stiles is a virgin and Derek has a big dick. Derek trains him to take it.

Stiles hadn’t really realized it until they were mashed up against his door, his thighs splayed, Derek’s hips fitted to him. And then he turned slightly and ohmygod, there was Derek’s dick. Just sitting right there, in his pants, pressed against Stiles. Derek Hale had a dick. Derek Hale had a fucking big dick. Like anaconda proportions. Suddenly Stiles was pulling away, nervous excitement twining with fear and plummeting straight down into his stomach as Derek mouthed at his neck.

“I’m a virgin,” Stiles blurted out, and his voice did an embarrassing little crack on the end like he was tripping through puberty and falling face first on the other side.

Valentine’s Day Candy in Aisle Four - Explicit - linksofmemories

“It’s so commercialist, and all it does is bring people down who don’t have a special someone.”

“Basically.”

“Are you two seriously discussing your hatred of Valentine’s Day when a man with a gun is walking around the store?”

What I Did On My Summer Vacation - Explicit - grimm

There’s something weird about Beacon Hills that Stiles can’t quite put his finger on. The way everyone in town knows his name the day he arrives. The way they insist the melancholic howling that echoes through the forest every night is just a dog. The way his dad denies getting a dog, even though Stiles comes home to find one sprawled across his bed, some big black thing whose eyes gleam red in the right light. The way that massive oak tree out in the woods vibrates under his touch, pulsing with sickly life.

There’s something weird going on in this town, and Stiles is determined to get to the bottom of it.

Stiles may have made a huge mistake.

The thing is, Stiles has no interest whatsoever in going on a TV dating show. Deep down, in his heart of hearts — and publicly, to anyone who is foolish enough to bring up the topic — Stiles thinks it’s kind of pathetic. Because it’s all fake, for starters, like all “reality” TV is fake, but also he thinks the people who go on those shows are more interested in attention than love, so what’s the point? It’s like narcissistic masturbation with some television exhibitionism thrown in for good measure. And letting the entire nation — nay, the world — mock your lack of pick-up prowess? Noooo thank you.

Suddenly his entire body felt tingly and sensitive and he could swear gravity had failed on him just then; he couldn’t feel the chair he was sitting on, or where he’d planted his feet on the floor, or the clothes he was wearing, or the pen he was holding, and then his vision started blurring and morphing into a picture of some place that was not his classroom.
“Oh, shi—”
