Towering 800 feet above the North Platte River, Scotts Bluff in Nebraska has served as a landmark for peoples – from Native Americans to emigrants on the Oregon, California and Mormon Trails to modern travelers. Rich with geological and paleontological history as well as human history, there is much to discover while exploring the 3,000 acres of Scotts Bluff National Monument.

I feel like i need to put a disclaimer that this week’s rec is not Sterek and if y’all don’t have anything nice to say about the pairing rec’ed here keep it to yourself and do not spread hate either on this post, on the works or to the authors.
Scott McCall has just lost his home to a blazing fire, and has moved in with long time best friend (and support network) Stiles Stilinksi. Over time, they’ll come to realize how close they really are, and what they could be together, thanks to a mouthy baker.
Ah-dorably oblivious Scott getting some guidance from baker!Derek. But guys this is 14,000 words of adorable fluff with pets and best friends falling in love and adopting kids. It’s so, so worth the read.
“You’re not dysfunctional,” Scott insisted darkly. “No matter what that jackass —”
“Blake is not a jackass.”
“He is when he calls you dysfunctional,” Scott growled.
“Can we not?” Stiles folded his arms over his chest, watching Annie approach with their breakfasts. “It’s eight in the morning on a Saturday, Scott, and I don’t want to have this conversation anymore. Today it’s just you, me, and the river.”
Protective Scott! Asexual Stiles! Emissary Stiles!!! for alpha Scott!!! doing a cool ritual to protect the pack territory. It’s great and very sweet!
“It’s Mister Stilinski,” Stiles repeats. “That- uh. There’s a mistake. On the paperwork. It’s Mister.” That was all it was. Just a mistake on the paperwork. On the school records and his birth certificate and his social security card. On all the paperwork. But still, just a mistake. That’s what his therapists said. His cells had made a little mistake but it isn’t disgusting or wrong or sick. He isn’t a mistake. Just the papers. His body.
Kid fic! by the incomparable @petals42 that is so adorable and very sweet and respectful and it’s just Stiles and Scott being bros in middle school as Stiles goes through coming out as FtM and Scott being nothing but supportive and protective ( ˘ ³˘)♥
Warnings: Yo, this story gets a lil dark in places. We’ll put a couple of the darkest replies behind cuts as to avoid triggering anyone. You may also like to blacklist these phrases in advance. tw: violence, tw: torture, tw: injury. ~Revenge will be Mine will hide the whole thing.
Mission complete and they even had time to grab half the menu from a burger bar they just saved from a landslide. It’s the best burger he’s eaten in years. Scott devours it like a sink-hole, filling in the gaps with fries and washing it down with a mint flavored milkshake. He’s sure the noises aren’t pretty but he and Virg just saved half a town with nothing more than a POD and half a crate of explosives. Scott’s starving!
Australia sprawls out beneath them as they head for home. It’s such a familiar flight path Scott doesn’t even need to look at the many displays on Thunderbird Two’s dash to know where they are. He leaves Virgil to it, preferring to fish out the last few fries from the bags piled on his lap.
“That filled a hole.” He sighs happily once the last fry’s gone to a better place and he’s cleared up the debris. “I won’t tell the guys we grabbed a burger without them if you don’t.”
They didn’t just grab a burger. They grabbed three. But if nobody else witnessed it then who’s to say it ever happened in the first place? Scott’s in such a good mood he chuckles at nothing in particular and spreads out in his seat to enjoy the rest of the flight home.
His chuckle’s cut short by an alert he knows well from his own Thunderbird. The giant cargo ship’s picked up a localised signal from somewhere beneath them. To the left there’s a hill and to the right a river but Scott can’t see anyone in need of rescuing.
“What do you think?” He asks his brother as the signal continues to beep. It could be nothing but it might be an SOS. “Wanna check it out? Five minutes and we’ll be back in the air again. It’s gonna be a lost hiker, I just know it. Those guys never update their maps before coming out here.”
Scott twinkles as he reaches out to squeeze his brother’s shoulder, “Sometimes they’re ladies.” He hints mischievously, “You never know, Virg. Carpe diem!”
