Hello! Could you (or your followers) help me and rec fics where the author uses pics of the TW cast (e.g. from their instagrams) as part of the story? Or maybe fake iphone screenshots... or any kind of image, really, that is used to illustrate or complement the plot. I love those types of fics because they add a dose of realness to everything, you know? I hope you can help me. Thanks a lot!
Sterek fics + social media…some of these might not have embedded images, but ideas are definitely there! ^_^
- the one with the accidental dick pic by officerstilinskihale (M, 8k) Derek has just disappeared out the window when Stiles pulls out his phone, takes a photo of the bottle of lotion on his bedside drawer and sends it to Derek, with the words, “may or may not be thinking about you right now.” He hears a thud just across the tree line outside his house and snickers.
- Navigating This Space Between Us by Omni (E, 10k) Derek gets forced to watch some sci-fi show about a surly, secret prince and the sarcastic young spaceship captain hired to aid him on his quest. Strangely enough, he finds himself hooked on it. So much so that he’s even drawn into the fandom. There he meets a popular fanfic author with an oddly endearing attitude, and he gets rather smitten. Maybe this mystery guy could actually help get him to stop pining for Stiles…
- The Day Stiles Met His Future Husband by randomquixen (T, 5k) The text messages, tweets, and group chats between Derek, Laura, Scott, Stiles, Allison, Lydia, and Isaac. Stiles spots a hot bearded guy in the airport and follows him around, tweeting about his love. Derek spots an adorable nerd guy and texts Laura about it. Then the shenanigans when everyone meets everyone else, tweets are revealed and flashing accidentally occurs.
- Hot Nerd Alert by alisvolatpropiss (E, 25k) Derek can’t believe he’s actually doing this: taking a selfie snap of the guy he’s been crushing on for weeks to prove to Danny that one, yes, he really does exist, and two, he really is that hot and thus he is totally justified in being too scared to make a move. Or you know, even talk to the guy outside of the class they share. In his defense, this isn’t just any guy. This THE guy. Hot Nerd. The utterly adorable but still somehow insanely sexy freshman in his twentieth century American Lit class who he’s been lusting over since the first day of the semester. If there were ever a time for him to be that person who tries to be subtle while taking snaps of other people, this is it.
- Who is @DerekHale? by takeiab (E, 5k) Over the next month, Derek found himself following…well, himself. The Kid (as Derek had started referring to his twitter double) knew way too much about him. Derek could only guess it was Laura’s doing. He would often tweet about mundane things like photos from Derek’s favorite restaurant, a movie he had been thinking of seeing but hadn’t actually seen yet, observations about color or cool buildings he’d admired, and one one particularly eerie Tuesday as Derek sat down with a stack of books on incorporating natural light into office design, The Kid tweeted a treatise on the difficulty of making things both beautiful and functional which gave Derek chills. Or the one where Derek is an architect and Laura decided he needs a public image… without telling him.
- Worth the Wait to Give You My Heart by secondstar (T, 6k) All of Derek’s memories surrounding his birthday were of his family, of their deaths. After leaving Beacon Hills, he thought the past was behind him; until he and Stiles began exchanging SnapChats.
- dhale25 by ericaismeg (G, 8k) Derek Hale is an actor in Los Angeles, Stiles is a fanboy in Toronto. When Derek posts his Snap Chat username on Twitter, inviting people to add him, Stiles gets brave and adds him.They develop a snapping relationship, and it gets intense.
- untitled by howlnatural (G, <1k) Derek hates the underscore in his twitter handle.
