Fav sterek fics?

I have 402 bookmarks on AO3, how do I choose favorites?! I guess I can try ; ; here’s my pathetic attempt at a sterek rec list (fics added as I find them in my bookmarks, not by favorites):

The Boy and the Beast by Dira Sudis (dsudis) [116k, M]

In which events in Beacon Hills go rather differently from the start, and a Beauty and the Beast (ish) story ensues. (Scott is not a teacup and no one sings about their feelings.)

Safety in Silence by Survivah [66k, M]

It’s perfectly understandable. Even Derek wouldn’t want to be Derek’s soulmate.

Easy Trouble by Survivah [55k, M]

Derek+Stiles+fairies = love spell

“Make love to me,” Derek demands.


Where The Inevitable Isn’t by Survivah [41, M]

Stiles has a magical thingamajig that’s supposed to get him out of danger. Trouble is, it took him really, really far out of danger. Like, to the point where he isn’t in the same universe anymore.

“A part of Stiles had been thinking that he’d come home, and just go, ‘hey, Derek, are we mates and you just haven’t said anything about it?’ and Derek would reply, ‘now you mention it, we are indeed! Now come to my bedchamber, where we will have super hot sex and then cuddle after!’”

A Simple Life by Survivah [13k, T]

Derek plans to spend the rest of his life holed up in the woods after Laura dies. Then he meets a stubborn young fox, and the stubborn young fox meets an urn of Deaton’s magic powder, and his plans change.

Some Random 5-star Reads!

These are all books that i have rated 5 stars in recent years, and I adore all of them to bits (obviously, since I gave them a full 5-star rating!), but for some reason I don’t talk about them very much! Some of these I’ve never talked about! So I thought I’d share some of them, and give a bit of info on why I love them so much.

Walking Into Darkness by alenie 

rating: teen

word count: 6 342

Derek hears Stiles before he sees him. There’s anxious, wheezy breathing coming from the next aisle over in the grocery store, accompanied by a racing heart and the smell of unwashed sneakers and hair gel. He turns the corner and Stiles is standing frozen in the dairy aisle, knuckles clenched around the metal of his shopping basket.


Lost in the Woods by idareu2bme

Stiles gets lost in the woods. His savior is a rather unlikely hero.


The One Where Derek Is Courting And Stiles Fears The Zombie/Werewolf Apocalypse by im_not_a_lizard

rating: mature

word count: 8 313

Written for this prompt: Awkward courtship funtimes! Derek is courting Stiles in the way that all male animals go about impressing their mates. Giving them practical (if weird, like, Derek gives Stiles 10kg of steak) gifts, making a nice home (he starts renovating the old Hale house), weird shit like that. Stiles is oblivious, and Scott keeps sort of helplessly hinting at what Derek is doing to little effect. Make me giggle and squeal into my pillow anon.


Wolfsbane Moonlighting by derekstilinski

rating: teen

word count: 4 422

Stiles finds a badly injured wolf deep in the woods. Thanks to all those times Stiles had to cover for Scott in the animal clinic he knows a thing or two about treating wild animals. He also knows he should probably call somebody for help. Against better judgment he approaches the animal. The wolf is distrustful and Stiles is scared he might attack him - god knows wolf’s eyes shouldn’t be that blue - but day after day of Stiles’ patient treatment and ceaseless but (hopefully) soothing chatter, a weird friendship is born. Unfortunately, the wolf’s condition worsens and Stiles is desperate enough to take him to the clinic. Only then he discovers it’s not a wolf at all.


The Wolf That Heard Crying by grimm

rating: explicit

word count: 17 685

There was someone in Derek’s house. He was on his way back from a hunt, licking blood from his muzzle when he heard the sound of smashing wood coming from inside. Derek snarled quietly, leaping up onto the back deck without a sound. He paused in the doorway to the living room, eyes burning red in the dim light. The boy whacking the wall with a moldy piece of timber was different than the ones who had come before. He wasn’t laughing, wasn’t enjoying himself as pieces of rotten flew from both the wall and the wood in his hands. He smelled of sadness and desperation and anger, and when the piece of wood in his hands finally splintered the boy sank to his knees and cried.


Winter’s Edge by Cutewolfboys (Inkforwords) FAV!

rating: teen

word count: 41 122

When Stiles’ great Uncle Ben passes away, he inherits a cabin and 100 acres of land. What he didn’t expect to get out of the deal was a mysterious wolf with five little cubs roaming around his property. He has a feeling they are definitely more than they seem to be.

rating: teen

word count: 9 965

“Derek. I don’t think I want to know why you’re here, but please tell me it has nothing to do with werewolves.“

"Dad, can you at least let him in the house?”

“I’m sorry. Does he need to be invited in or he can’t enter like in the movies?”

“That’s vampires.”

“My mistake!”


What I Did On My Summer Vacation by grimm FAV!

rating: explicit

word count: 118 749

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.

rating: explicit

word count: 50 599

He is, however, since a young age, captivated by a recurring dream of a beautiful, red-eyed wolf that he comes to hold dear to his heart. After college, he moves to Seattle and decides to get a tattoo to acknowledge his dream Wolf, finding a lot more than he expected at Triskele Tattoo.

rating: mature

word count: 21 356

Stiles is the owner of Furry Friends animal shelter along with his best friend and veterinarian, Scott. They take in all sorts of animals and each and every one of them have a special place in his heart. Then one day, animal control drops off a big black dog and Stiles can’t help but feel some sort of bond with it.

Derek Hale is going to make whoever did this to him pay. He’d been in the woods investigating some rumors when all of a sudden, someone had knocked him out and drugged him and he’d woken up in full wolf form and in an animal control van. Now he was stuck at some animal shelter with someone who just wouldn’t leave him alone. The human, Stiles, was oddly nice and gentle and continued to treat him with kindness. Derek felt himself drawn to the human but he wasn’t a pet and he couldn’t stay.

The One With The Scottish Wolf Lord by Stoney FAV!

rating: explicit

word count: 11 758

I just… okay, there was a ridiculous bodice ripper cover with “SCOTTISH WOLF LORD” and I went from there. Hale family is alive and a royal family in Scotland, Stiles is the waif sent to work in the kitchens and is elevated to personal attendant/servant to the young Lord Hale. Who happens to be a wolf. (And so much more!)

Actual Puppy Derek Hale by tylerfucklin (zimothy)

rating: teen

You are the Moon by skoosiepants FAV!

rating: teen

word count: 10 055

Stuff Stiles doesn’t like to deal with first thing: hot, moist dog breath in his face, a cuddly werewolf creepifying his perfectly normal morning wood with shades of bestiality, and his dad holding his service revolver up against the skull of his bedmate, never mind the fact that his bedmate could possibly be a vicious unhinged rogue omega.


Historically Inaccurate by asocialfauxpas (fuzzytomato) FAV!

rating: explicit

word count: 20 368

Stiles is surprisingly okay with all the weird shit that goes on at Beacon City Historic Ghost Town - ghost lights, howling, pianos playing on their own. Having to work closely with the surly blacksmith is another matter.


To Sleep, Perchance to Dream by hologramophone

rating: general

word count: 2 328

3 times this week, Derek has found Stiles sleepwalking.

3 times this week, Derek carries him home.

The Hazardous Tale of the Wolf in the Orchard by thistledome

rating: explicit

word count: 40 406

A week after Queen Victoria’s murder, Stiles finds himself indebted to a werewolf living in the forest outside of his town. But werewolves have been banned from the kingdom of December for years, and this one does not seem to know that Victoria is dead, or even who the royal family are.

When the King and his daughter come to town with the King’s crazy sister, Kate, Stiles is dragged into the middle of a war he did not know was raging between two old families. As the secrets about the royal family slowly unfold, Stiles finds himself more and more drawn to the werewolf in the forest, until fate has laid all its cards on the table and lives are on the line.

Based on the Decemberists’ concept album The Hazards of Love. Consider yourself warned.

rating: teen

word count: 35 150

Derek knew Stiles was his mate from that very first day in the woods. It was something his mother had talked about endlessly—the importance of mates.


That didn’t mean he liked the idea. He did not want to be mated to the Sheriff’s loudmouthed jailbait son.


(You) Bring Out the Beast (In Me) by Ember FAV!

rating: explicit

word count: 21 049

“Should I make out the wedding invitations?”

Stiles swallowed his mouthful of soda.”What?”

Lydia smirked. “Well, you and Derek have seemed awfully cozy lately. Just wanted to be supportive.”

“Oh, yeah, because that’s exactly why I went into wildlife preservation.” He rolled his eyes. “Beastiality jokes.”


Aka the one where Derek is a wolf and Stiles is his trainer, and then magic and transformations and feelings happen.

Hale, on two legs and wearing a shirt, finds him thirty minutes later still sitting in the same position, staring at the ceiling.

Alternatively: the secret agent AU nobody asked for.
