Say what you want about Sterek but I’ve never read so many fics where the overlying message is trust, consent, and safe sex.

Now You’re Too Sweet (6672: G)

In which Stiles is thoroughly confused and awkwardly misinterprets the situation, and has fallen in love with Derek’s heavenly baked goods before he even knew (let alone fell for) Derek Hale. Also, first meetings are a mess and the universe hates him, but nothing new there, right?

Written in Foam (2492: T)

Stiles Stilinski is hopelessly in love with his professor.

Smooth (5490: T)

Derek and Stiles share some awesome food and dance a little and makeout a little.

Fakes Don’t Last too Long (2895: M)

Stiles works at a coffeeshop, crushing on all the gorgeous customers, but most of all on Derek, the hottest of them all. So when Derek asks Stiles to be his fake boyfriend for family reasons, it’s not like Stiles is gonna say no.

I’m Constantly on the Cusp of Trying to Kiss You (4044: T)

Derek is a writer and has a crush on Stiles, they talk about skydiving and getting tattoos, and Laura Hale is awesome.

Sexy as Charged (6291: T)

Stiles has no idea how it’s managed to get to this point in time, and he really fucking regrets getting out of bed this morning. I mean, he didn’t even have class, which was a once in a blue moon kind of thing, but he still thought, “Hey, it’s a nice morning, I’m not dead, the sun is shining, I might as well get some coffee.” What. An. Idiot.

Well. It wasn’t an altogether bad day. There were definitely some high points.

Mornings Aren’t For Everyone (1871: G)

Derek can only stare in horrified fascination because it’s like someone drew a caricature of Monday mornings and this person sprang off the canvas in full, technicolor life.

Whipped Cream (1872: M)

Stiles met his soulmate while MMRPGing at the local coffee shop. It wasn’t AvengeAnnie303, like Stiles had previously thought (and then did some digging, paid actual attention to what AvengeAnnie303 was saying, and guessed AvengeAnnie303 was actually AvengeMANnie303 and the 303 stood for his age). Neither was it the cute hipster barista who sneered at Stiles’s taste in non-hipster whole cream and the fact he didn’t really care if his coffee was free range or organic or Arabica or whatever coffee so long as it had caffeine.

Stay Awhile (3593: T)

Once Derek’s brain finally kicks back online, his first thought is how amazing that movement would look on paper. His second is where the hell is his sketchpad?

Finding Hale’s (1805: T)

Coffee is more than just a fix for Stiles. Coffee is a lifestyle, coffee is one of his last connections to his mother. So, finding a place to replace Starbucks is a must.

Happy March everyone! This month’s theme is Spies/Bodyguards. You can find other month’s {here}

this town is only gonna eat you (16398: M)

On the outskirts of Stockholm, Derek takes down six men of eight with nothing but a boot knife and Stiles at his back. By the end, he’s covered in an array of bruises and blood and dirty snow, crouched low to the ground. Stiles stands by him, posture perfectly erect, Glock still raised. He’s got a smear of lipstick on his mouth and gunpowder residue on his sleeve. The men at their feet do not stir. 

A Strong Heart and a Nerve of Steel (21285: E)

Stiles and Derek wake up married in Vegas. Well, they would have if it was legal.

In which Stiles is the president’s son, Derek is his bodyguard, and Papa President orders them to pretend to be in love for the sake of gay rights.

Or in which uraniea and lupinus combine meeting the Hales, President Papa, waking up married, fake/pretend relationship, First Boy Stiles, and bodyguard Derek into one fic.

Nobody Does It Better (2019: T)

“Blue Wolf, come in, Blue Wolf. You should really thank me for suggesting the pink tie, as it’s clearly bringing all the ladies to the yard.”

I Want the Whole Sea for You and Me (1868: G)

Derek is the angriest spy to ever spy, but he gets the job done, and that’s why Peter keeps him on, but sometimes Stiles just doesn’t know what to do with him.

with metal on our tongues (8848: E)

Double-oh agents are a piece of work; Stiles knew that before he became MI6’s new quartermaster. It’s cool, he survived Lydia in college, he can deal with stubborn, reckless, trigger-happy operatives. Derek Hale, though, is definitely trying to live up to his predecessor’s legacy and make Stiles’ life more difficult.

AKA the one where Derek is 007 and Stiles is Q and they bitch and angst their way to a Happy Ending.

Ain’t No Casablanca (3557: M)

Agents D and S discover the various meanings of D/s.

They also save the world. (But that isn’t really the point.)

we’re catching bullets in our teeth (12935: M)

Stiles says he’s a Web Developer. Derek says he an Internal Auditor.

They’re both liars, but you can’t exactly tell your significant other that you kill people for a living, now can you?

It’s time for the monthly top 15 themed fics! This month’s theme is Kid fics, they are listed in no particular order but the ones with three stars (***) are my personal favorites.

You can find other themed fics here.

Coming Home (Complete: 22,597: Mature)

An AU in which Derek works for the sheriff’s department, Stiles is a single father, and Laura lives to drive her brother up the wall.

He’s Not Mine (Complete: 68,543: Explicit) ***

Derek comes home to find an abandoned werebaby on his front porch and Stiles volunteers to help him out. Surprisingly, that is just the beginning of his problems.

DILF (Complete: 30,871: Explicit) ***

“Today is Scott’s first day of kindergarten and Derek is terrified.”

Trust In This (Even If You’re Scared Stiff) (Complete: 10,460: Teen)

Stiles’ kid has a tendency to get into fights and possibly has bad taste in friends. Or enemies. Stiles isn’t sure yet, but he’s pretty sure the other kid’s dad is too hot to be human.

Prince Among Wolves (Complete: 101,000: Explicit)

Looking for full day/evening sitter. 2 twin boys age 4. Must have exp. w/werewolves. Must be human. No pedophiles. No teenage girls. Pay negotiable.

Lord knows it would be the first time (Complete: 12,287: Explicit)

Stiles is home from Berkeley for the summer, but only because he promised the pack. He’d rather not see Derek, because whatever the thing was that they were doing, they’re not doing it anymore, and it sucks. Unfortunately, he doesn’t have a choice. The betas tried a magical remedy for Derek’s melancholy, and now Stiles has a three-year-old who looks like Derek. Stiles doesn’t know how to deal with that, and he definitely doesn’t know how to tell the betas he and Derek were secret fuck buddies for a year and a half.

When You Wish Upon a Dragon (Complete: 13,739: Teen) 

Stiles is at the Hale house, lounging on the front stoop watching Isaac, Erica, and Boyd wrestle, when the baby comes running out of the woods Derek becomes instant father to a magically appearing baby and falls in love. Stiles can’t take the cute and worries Derek’s heart will break if he loses the kid.

Find It In Our Hearts (Complete: 103,833: Teen) ***

Kate Argent had a lot of secrets, some of which she took to the grave. When one of them shows up on Chris Argent’s doorstep in the form of Kate’s five-year-old daughter, it’s not long before more to come to light — namely, that Kate’s crimes against Derek Hale didn’t begin and end with the murder of his family. It’s no surprise that as soon as Derek learns about his daughter’s existence, he decides that nothing will keep him from claiming the only family he still has in the world. Stiles finds himself firmly in the middle of the Hale-Argent family drama, slowly growing more certain of his feelings for Derek and ever more sure of the inevitable heartbreak they’ll bring.

Maggie May (Complete: 24,997: Mature)

When Laura Hale died, she left behind a daughter, Maggie. Stiles (and his dad) have been caring for Maggie since the night Laura disappeared. Unbeknownst to Stiles, however, Maggie’s a werewolf, and she’s bonded with Stiles. Which means he feels extra protective when Peter Hale appears on the scene. (He may have also developed a little crush on Maggie’s uncle, the silent and brooding Derek Hale. Who said Stiles’ life was boring?)

You Make Me See How Much I Have (Complete: 16,943: Teen)

“You’re lucky you got here now,” he says, “Ten minutes – maybe you could get your –” there’s a crash before he can say get your daughter, and Stiles resists the urge to either slap his hand against his face, or slap Derek, because no one ever understands how difficult it is to have a kid in the store by themselves unless they’re also parents.

to be with those I like (Complete: 9,323: Explicit)

It’s Deaton who tells Derek that Stiles is back in town, a broken marriage behind him, his daughter in tow.

Daddy Do’s (Complete: 8,065: General) ***

“Hi Mr. Stilinski!” Lydia said pertly. “My name’s Lydia, and this is my daddy. His name is Derek Andrew Hale and he watches all of your videos on YouTube a lot, but he still can’t braid.”

[Stiles is a celebrity YouTube hairstylist. Derek may or may not have a crush. Lydia just wants a French braid for school picture day.]

ladybugs (Complete: 20,723: Explict)

It’s Saturday night, and Derek Hale is at Toys R Us. Shopping for Leapfrog games. If asked, it wasn’t exactly how he pictured his life. Or his Saturday nights.

In which Derek and Stiles have been married for ten years, have two kids, and are planning their five year old’s birthday party.

The Littlest Alpha (Complete: 52,508: Explicit) ***

Derek and Stiles have taken out the Alpha Pack and pretty much saved the world. Okay, the town. Okay, their remaining friends. But the Alphas left something behind: a baby. And this baby is an Alpha too. Derek is determined to take care of the abandoned child, and Stiles is stuck going along for the ride.

But Stiles doesn’t expect the ride to include seeing another side of Derek, or to find another way to say “family.”

our lives are changing lanes (Complete: 47,537: Explicit)

There’s a lot of screaming going on inside the first house Stiles visits. He isn’t really worried, because it sounds like kids, but then the door opens and hi, says his dick, because the dude in front of him is gorgeous, built like a god with a face like thunder. Stiles wants tolick that solid jaw line. Hold the fuck on, says his cop brain, because the dude’s got kids hanging all over him; one’s on his back, skinny legs looped around his waist, and another two hanging off one arm, toes barely brushing the ground. There’s a tubby toddler clinging to his leg like a koala, and he’s got a baby tucked into the crook of the one arm that doesn’t have kids hanging off it. Stiles’ mouth drops open.

“How many of those kids did you kidnap?” he asks before he can wrangle his brain into submission.

The man gives him a look that says what the fuck is wrong with you and snaps, “You think I’d subject myself to this on purpose?”

“Oooh,” says one of the kids hanging off his arm. “I’m telling Mom.”

In your dreams, Atlas laughs.
Opens his mouth wide as a storm,
says, “Little wolf, did you think
humans could handle the weight
of gods?”

Atlas is laughing at you and all you
can think is that the world is red
when it should be in gold. Atlas
laughs and the sky trembles
and your shoulders shake.

The thing is, ordinary humans
are built of bone and blood.
Skin as fragile as china, hearts
as open as the ocean. But you –
you are no ordinary human.

And yet, you are no god.

For gods, the skies are home.
But you, the woods claim you.
Child of Adam, child of Eve,
but heir to the wolves.

For you, home is a forest
painted deep, dark red.
Home is a pack, wolves
and humans and witches.
Home is gold eyes and gold
hearts and silver arrows.

Home is not Olympus,
not for the children of wolves.

Atlas laughs, but there is
something heavy in his eyes

Olympus is not his home, either.

Maybe the weight of the sky
was meant for you.
