Sterek & ALL the Christmas Fics

I have no self control when it comes to Christmas fics. None. So, this is my top 60 list of christmas fics. Yes, top 50 would have been cooler but then I would have to delete some fics *gasp*  The newer fics are at the top.  Also, I did not update the ugly christmas sweater fics those ones are here

Mistletoe’s Overrated Anyway by  stilinski | 8.2K

Derek remembers a hyperactive eleven year old with a buzzcut and an irritating habit of getting underfoot - his memory doesn’t lend to the lean, doe eyed brunet in his hallway; he’s talking on his phone and scowling something fierce but Derek’s mouth goes dry at the way Stiles runs long fingers through his hair.

Kiss Me on This Cold December Night by  Leslie_Knope | 18.9K

The hairs on the back of Stiles’ neck tingle, and he swallows hard against the unmistakable sensation of someone staring at him. He’s tempted to just ignore it, but after a few seconds, his curiosity wins out and he looks up from his phone instead. He doesn’t notice anything right away, flicking his gaze along the people on the other side of the intersection until he suddenly stops and backtracks. It’s a little hard to see, what with the thick drizzle and the cars whizzing between them, but he would recognize that glorious bearded face anywhere, even after six years. Holy shit.

The Holiday by  matildajones | 16.5K

It’s Christmas, Stiles is alone, and he finds himself swapping Bed & Breakfasts with Cora Hale over the holidays.

practice makes perfect by  bleep0bleep | 3.3K

“So… you’re interested? Or you just said yeah because it’s what you say when you don’t know what to say.”
“Interested. In kissing you.”
Stiles makes a vague gesture with his hand. “I mean, yeah, if only to get you more comfortable with the whole dating thing in the future. I mean, we’re friends, and I want you to be happy.” He bites his lip, nervous.
Derek doesn’t even need to think about it because he knows it’s a bad idea. He’ll kiss Stiles and get to know what it’s like, and his heart will break because he won’t ever get to have him, that this is out of friendship only.
But this might be his only chance.

Kiss Me, It’s Beginning To Snow by  thepsychicclam | 4.2K

The flamingo in the yard by  Vendelin | 6.1K

It isn’t fair that Stiles needs to work Christmas, when his dad is on the other side of the country. Or that his really hot, next door neighbour is around for the holidays as well. Or that there’s a power outage that makes things even worse. Or better.

Caring for Your Caroler by  mikkimouse | 2K

Derek’s neighbor is singing Christmas carols in the backyard at 2 a.m. Derek’s going to kill him.

Layover by  dr_girlfriend | 3.6K

She seemed fascinated with Derek’s beard, eyes widening further under incredibly thick lashes as she petted Derek’s cheek some more, smoothing down the short stubble. Finally she grinned widely. “Good wuff.”

Derek jerked upright, hands clenching on the edge of his seat. Did she just say?…

“CJ!” The child was suddenly gone, lifted up by a strong, tattooed forearm around her little potbelly. “You scared the he— heck out of me! What have I told you about wandering — Derek?”

hooked on (dangling by a yarn) by  extantecstasy | 19.1K

I’ll Wait Up For You, Dear by  WhoNatural | 5.4K

Derek is the Uber driver who always seems to be up when Stiles needs a ride home from work.

Regression to the Mean by  theroguesgambit | 16.5K

There aren’t really words for this. “Sure, dude. Let’s hang out sometime and bond over the fact that our lives suck and we’ve both basically killed a bunch of people by accident” doesn’t exactly roll off the tongue.

sometimes fate is like a small snowstorm by  thepsychicclam | 8.1K

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.

Then twelve years later, two days before Christmas, Derek finds Stiles in that same coffee shop. 

Red Against the Snow by  Ember | 34.2K

Stiles is trapped for the holidays in the cabin of a strange man/hermit named Derek. A strangely friendly wolf befriends Stiles during his stay. It’s up to the teenager to find out why Derek has secluded himself from society, what the feelings he’s beginning to have means, and what the connection between the mysterious man and the mysterious black wolf is.

Let it snow! Let it snow! (but please let it stop eventually) by  relenafanel | 19.1K

Stiles grew up with his bedroom window overlooking Derek’s bedroom, so when he returns home for the holidays he’s surprised to find a stranger in his nerdy neighbour’s bedroom.

Only, he’s not much of a stranger.

It is Derek Hale, the guy who is going to be his new step brother, if the rumours are true.

Abominable by  Revenant | 20.2K

Where Derek buys a secluded cabin halfway up a mountain, meets a yeti and falls in love with Stiles, but not necessarily in that order.

You Got Us An Ornament by  TheRealNightTempest | 18K

With the Pack out of town for Christmas and his dad and Melissa on the honeymoon they never had, Stiles plans to craft his way through the holidays to distract himself from being alone. When he realizes his plan isn’t as fun by himself, Stiles turns to Derek Hale to help him out as the only other miserable guy left in Beacon Hills at Christmas.

Or the one where Stiles loves Pinterest and forces Derek to help him bake ten different cookies and break out his hot gluing skills. There might be heaping amounts of feels. You have been warned.

The Long Way Around by  banryeo, secondstar | 10.2K

After searching through his family’s vault, Derek finds a key to a vacation cabin that his family own. He decides to fix it, along with allowing himself to heal for the first time since his family’s death. In taking the time for himself, he comes to realize his feelings for Stiles, albeit slowly.

Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas by  mikkimouse | 1.1K

“you’re in the hospital for the holidays so i came in while you were sleeping to decorate your room i love you merry christmas”

made from the heart by  bleep0bleep | 2.7K

Derek has been crushing on Stiles for awhile, and thinks maybe this Christmas season he’ll tell him how he feels. He’s got a great present too, except when Stiles gives him a thoughtful handmade present, Derek is pretty much screwed.

Scott and Stiles own a Christmas Tree Farm | tumblr ficlet

Derek just has to cut down the perfect tree. And maybe Laura and Cora have ulterior motives for Derek and the cute Christmas tree farm owner.

The Natural Binding Properties of Pine Sap by  uraneia | 4.2K

Derek saves a nymph from being somebody’s Christmas decoration. As a reward, the nymph grants him a twig of mistletoe.

If Derek had known the mistletoe would come to life and goad him into kissing people at random, he might have tried to refuse.

your presence is a present by  bleep0bleep | 1.6K

For some reason Derek had this idea in his head of an elderly grandfatherly type who liked to tell silly jokes, read stories to kids in classrooms and let them wear his badge.

Stiles is, for lack of a better word, hot.

Bet On It by  IDreamOnlyOfYou (lauren3210) | 8.3K

Stiles is an RN and Derek the attending trauma surgeon at Beacon Hills Hospital. They’re constantly arguing, much to the amusement of their colleagues, who ultimately decide to take bets on when the sexual tension will finally explode. The only question is, who will win the jackpot?

The Ribbon on My… by  Dira Sudis (dsudis) | 11.3K

Derek had assumed that he and Stiles would give each other simple things, swapping books or DVDs or jokey gifts, random dollar store toys and junk food.

A Thrill of Hope by  bigboobedcanuck | 4K

Stiles crashes through the forest with Derek in his sights, stopping every so often to launch another snowball and duck one of Derek’s. Obviously Derek could outrun him in a heartbeat if he wanted to, but for some bizarre reason he apparently wants to hang out with Stiles and have an epic snowball fight. Maybe it’s a Christmas miracle. Or maybe Derek is just as bored and lonely as Stiles is.

All I Want for Christmas (Is You) by  blindinglights | 9.2K

Derek meets Stiles in a department store while shopping for his family, after seeing a little girl crying for her Dad on the floor. They part ways and Derek doesn’t think he’ll see Stiles again. Beacon Hills may not be that big, but it still doesn’t mean he’ll ever run into Stiles, because that’s just not how Derek’s life works. Despite what Erica tries to tell him whenever she can, that sometimes fate can happen, Christmas miracles, whatever, it won’t.

(Or, the one where Stiles is a single dad, Derek falls for him, and Christmas ends up better than Derek expected.)

12 Days of Hale Publishing by relenafanel | 7,533

Something must have poked his Christmas Spirit. It might be the way Hale was watching the proceedings with a scowl on his face, unable to hide what was clear derision. Earlier, his eyes had lifted when Stiles entered the work pen with the presents, and Stiles had been under the impression he had been vaguely pleased. The only thing Stiles could think of that would make someone such a gloomy grump was not getting a gift.

“What?” Hale asked, staring at him through the glass wall that made up the part of his office facing the work area.

“I’ve got something for you!” Stiles said, waving the small rectangular present as he walked in.

“That’s not mine,” Mr. Hale said, staring at the box like it offended him. Then he stared at Stiles like he was offending him more. “You’ve made a mistake.”

“No mistake, sir. It’s a special delivery from magical Hale Holiday Elves.” Stiles gestured to his head. “See the hat. A man wearing this hat makes no mistakes.”

A Hale for the Holidays by rlnerdgirl | 38,095

“I sent you a Christmas card that got sent back to me. Did you get a new apartment?” his dad wonders. The question is all suspicion and little anything else.

A flicker of an idea sparks. It’s not nearly formed well enough for him to say, “Yeah, actually,” and when he follows that with, “I moved in with someone,” he wants to punch himself in the face. He’s living with someone?!

“You’re living with someone?” It’s the same voice and tone as the one in Stiles’ head, just thirty years older.

Two things keep Stiles from bashing his face onto the table: there’s a steaming cup of coffee in the way and, more importantly, his dad will definitely hear. Someone passes by in front of him and a semi-familiar book cover catches his eye. “Derek Hale,” he muses, and stops. No. That wasn’t meant to be out loud.

A Missed Opportunity Is Found by alyshajade (larrymates) |3,362

Derek was more than halfway done with shelving the new shipment of Young Adult fantasy novels by the time Stiles finally breezed through the door, signaling his late arrival with the dull jingling of the bell. He wasn’t even in his work clothes yet, and Derek noted with disdain the streaks of mud that covered Stiles from head to toe.

“You’re more than an hour late,” Derek stated, more of a fact than an admonishment. Stiles was not only the boss’ kid, he was a snarky, arrogant teenage boy with an abundance of confidence, and Derek could rarely muster the nerve to stand up to him, regardless of his position as manager.

Assholes In Love by serenelystrange |3,819

These two assholes can’t figure out what to get each other for Christmas. Their friends are absolutely no help. But it all works out.

Baby, It’s Cold Outside by Jebiwonkenobi | 2,791

Beacon Hills has a snow storm. Totally-not-cuddling happens.

bah humbug (no, that’s too strong) by mywholecry | 6,384

Derek buys locks for his stupid burnt-out shell of a home, even though half of the place is exposed to the open air and it’s not exactly the fortress of solitude that a tragic anti-hero like Derek really deserves. He installs them on the front door one by one while Stiles sits cross-legged on the porch and watches, leans backwards onto his hands.

But, Doctor! by stilinskisparkles | 30,266

“We had to splint a girl’s leg in a ditch,” Scott says excitedly.

“Bro, you sound way too happy about that,” Stiles complains, opening up his bag and pulling out a Twinkie.

Derek removes it from his hand silently and replaces it with an apple. Stiles scowls at him for a second then bites into it, regardless. Derek sits back and lets the group discuss the merits of dramatic lifesaving feats for winning over the ladies. Scott is convinced it’ll help impress Allison; Isaac thinks Scott’s a loser. Stiles—

Stiles is falling asleep on Derek’s shoulder.

Come Fly With Me (Or Don’t) by stilinskisparkles | 15,325

Stiles is overworked and stressed out when his flight home gets delayed due to copious amounts of snow. He finds entertainment with one Derek Hale, whom he hasn’t seen since high school but really doesn’t mind getting reacquainted with. Especially when it turns out Derek is surprisingly hilarious and will reluctantly play snap with him. And can walk on his hands.

Cupboard Love by mklutz | 32,682

He’s carefully balancing the sandwiches and the two biggest tupperware containers he could find that both had functioning lids when the front door opens and he almost drops everything right there in front of the stupid fountain. If that’s Derek Hale, he’s definitely not a mountain man.

Deck the Hales with Mistletoe and Holly by tryslora | 32,827

Stiles recognizes that there are a number of reasons why this is a bad idea.


The one where Stiles manages to somehow imply that he might be dating his exceedingly hot TA for freshman lit, and ends up inviting him home for the holidays (along with his two crazy sisters) and really hopes that Lydia doesn’t find out he was lying and kill him before maybe he can make it so he’s not lying after all…

Denial by ericaismeg |4,924

Scott thinks they’re flirting. Isaac’s betting on Derek sniffing him. The Sheriff thinks they’re dating. Erica and Boyd are rooting for them. Derek’s waiting for him to figure it out.

Stiles is the only one in denial.

Glad Tidings by stilinskisparkles |24,166

“Eight people are going to be descending on our home in a mere matter of days, Derek.” Stiles grabs the pizza box, uses it to gesture at the pile of books and papers under the table, away and towards Derek’s sneaker collection. “You want them to think we live like this all the time?”

“We do live like this all the time,” Derek huffs, stretching lazily.

how you doin’? by decideophobia |6,768

“So,” Derek says eventually, because he feels awkward and uncomfortable, “how you doin’?”

I Thought You Would Like That by Emela | 7,325

Derek and Stiles get locked in a room together at an office Christmas party and end doing something about all that unresolved sexual tension.

i wish i had a river by thepsychicclam |15,588

Derek is the editor of a successful publishing firm, and is horrible to all his employees, including Stiles. On Christmas Eve night, he gets visited by three spirits and has to take a look at his life.

Mistletoe Never Lies by CarolineLahey | 19,220

Derek Hale loves his family, he really does. He just wishes they weren’t so determined to set him up. When he finally blurts out that he has a boyfriend, and quickly gives his mother the name of the barista at his local coffee shop as his “boyfriend”, he figures that buys him a little peace.

He probably should have been paying attention to the part of the conversation where he agreed to bring Stiles home for Christmas to meet the family.

My World Is Filled With Cheer And You by bleep0bleep | 10,832

“It was a last minute decision. Single parents with children draw attention to themselves in this type of neighborhood, and this department didn’t have a big budget to relocate all the werewolf and werewolf sympathizers that were targeted on this list. We’ve combined a lot of our relocation assignments. It ended up working out that another family, Mr. Stilinski and his son, looked like a good fit for you guys, so you’ll be sharing a home with them for the time being.” Markowski grins at him. “Congratulations! You’re married!”

In which Derek and his daughter are displaced just in time for the holidays, matched up with Stiles and his young son in a government protection program.

Nothing Short Of Perfect by GotTheSilver |27,019

In which Derek and Stiles are made aware of their potential and have to make a choice about what their relationship will be. “Let me get this straight,” his dad says. “You’re telling me a witch told Derek and yourself that you could be destined to be together and now Derek will be going to college with you?”

Secret Santa by Jebiwonkenobi | 10,866

Stiles was all odd angles and squirming. He shoved words into spaces where they shouldn’t go. He stood his ground when he should have run. He helped and protected Derek and the pack without ever asking for anything in return. Derek found himself wanting a lot of things from Stiles that he hadn’t allowed himself to want from anyone in a long time, which made Stiles feel like a cliff that he was in danger of leaping off of.

Solstice Alpha by Dira Sudis (dsudis) |11,152

The traditional Hale pack solstice party gets resurrected by the new and improved-from-ten-months-ago Hale pack.

Thank You For Breaking My Heart by Loz |14,458

Even though Christmas was the fucking worst, Derek had a moment to hang his hopes on — Scott coming into the coffee shop and gracing him with his smile. Little did Derek know that rescuing Scott from hunters would lead to him convincing Scott’s family they were engaged. This might not have been such a problem if Scott’s step-brother Stiles wasn’t so suspicious and oddly charming.

Tis The Season Baristas Fear The Most by stilinskisparkles | 5,470

Scott is hands down the worst barista Derek has ever hired. But it’s Christmas and apparently that means something to some people.

The Christmas Raffle by mikkimouse | 10,386

Every year, the royal Hale family raffles off a Christmas dinner with Prince Derek to raise money for charity. But this year, the winner is the second chance Derek didn’t know he was looking for.

The Company I Keep by secondstar | 67,551

Stiles has a favorite table at the library. Then some asshole comes along and steals it from him.

When You Stop Believing in Santa You Get Underwear by owlpostagain | 7,817

There are some salvageable things though. A virtually untouched heavy slate sign that says, engraved in an ornate script that confirms at least one person in the Hale family had a sense of humor (Stiles has a horrible suspicion it might have been Peter), When You Stop Believing in Santa You Get Underwear.

With A Little Christmas Magic by AceLotti |10,669

Stiles is jobless this Christmas and as a last resort, is stuck playing one of Santa’s elves at the mall. The job is a bust, and Stiles isn’t really in the Christmas mood, until he finds salvation in the Starbucks at the food court, not only in hiding from kids, but in one very sexy barista named Derek.

You put a Hallmark on my Heart by giantteenwolforgy | 3,325

Stiles is funny and smart and kind and is also his daughter’s teacher and his boss’s son. On the list of people who are off-limits, Stiles has held the top spot for as long as Derek has known him.

Since Derek is Derek, Stiles also happens to rank number one on the list of people Derek is in love with. Seriously. His life is like a bad Hallmark movie.

In the New Year by pyes | 43,507

In Beacon Hills they don’t say “Happy Holidays.” Instead they say “Yo, Derek,” which translates to “I’m pretty sure I soul-bound my sorry ass to the floor of your loft, four years ago, while reading spells off the internet.” I think that’s beautiful.

The Rest of Your Life by paradis | 4,168

“Seemed like a buttercream guy,” Stiles says innocently, and grabs two forks and pours two huge glasses of milk. They eat in silence and when Stiles finishes his mouth is filled with the too-sweet taste of peanut butter icing and chocolate cake, and he’s full, but he feels good, too. He stares at Derek, who’s licking his lips after his last bite of cake.

*MY* Top 10 Animated Halloween Movies


- This may not fit under the “Halloween movie” category that well, but trust me when I say this: The dark elements in this film pretty much has Halloween in it. If you’ve seen this movie and understand what I’m talking about, that’s great; if you haven’t see this movie and don’t understand what I’m talking about, I recommend that you pick this up sometime- you’ll be surprised. With death, decade, and destruction everywhere, “9” has a spot in the Halloween category…just pretty low in it.


- Even though the characters in this movie are either oblivious idiots, total morons, or unlikable assholes, “Monster House” is, indeed, a Halloween movie. The story of an angered woman’s soul possessing her and her husband’s house, and attacking anyone who isn’t her husband comes near is an unique idea. But my god, why make the characters so unlikable? Well, apart from the main character, who actually TRIES to be likable; same thing goes for the main female role. But regardless, this movie is an okay Halloween treat. I’m one for Halloween movies any day, even if the characters are stupid. It’s quirky, fun, and stupidly silly: “Monster House” is a win for Halloween! :)


- I really like this movie. It’s fast-paced, energized, and knows exactly how to keep us (the audience) entertained. I’ve put it a little low on this list, because it wasn’t really what I was expecting. After viewing the first trailer, I expected a simple Halloween comedy with Dracula and his other monster friends. But instead, after finally watching the movie, that it’s just exactly that, but with an additional Romeo & Juliet with Dracula’s daughter and this human boy about her age, and a whole “Humans are bad” plot. Regardless, I LOVE THIS MOVIE TO DEATH! But again, it wasn’t what I was expecting. But you know what? I still love it; it’s okay to have these two additions. Heck, the more I thought about it, the more it kinda made sense to add-in the additional plots. It’s still a *new* classic Halloween film, but with something new to it. And that’s what’s great about it. So, keep in mind, I DO NOT hate this movie. I love it! :)


- Yes, I know that some of you are probably wondering how THIS could top number 8 and how THIS isn’t counted as a “movie”, but more as a “special”. Well, to be fair, it’s closer to Halloween. That, and it’s in full-length time as a movie would. Regardless, this is still a classic for Halloween. I remember watching this every Halloween, on Cartoon Network, when I was younger; I LOVED this to DEATH! This was my favorite Halloween special of all-time. Just like “Hotel Transylvania”, “Scary Godmother” has the whole “these people are bad, but we’re mistaken, and turns out they are actually good” message, but they do it differently. In “Hotel Transylvania”, Dracula would get rid of his problems by any means necessary; here, Hannah, the main character, FACES her problems and fears. I’m NOT dissing on “Hotel Transylvania”- It’s one of my FAVORITES- but I do feel like “Scary Godmother” is more of a classic. They’re both on the same level, but I just felt like “Scary Godmother” had more Halloween flair. It was a hard decision in placing these two films- they’re both that great!


- To be honest, I mostly see this film as a romance movie. But, hey, it’s a Tim *fucking* Burton movie!!!! Aside the whole wedding plot, “Corpse Bride” DOES deliver some Halloween elements, just like “9”- may not be completely Halloween, but has some darkness in it that makes it fit. The good majority of this film takes place in the “Land of the Dead”, and to top it all off, a MURDER plot. I see this as both a Valentine’s Day AND Halloween movie; I’ll be sure to add this movie in my “Top 14 Valentine’s Day Movies”. But for now, let’s focus on Halloween. I’m not sure about the rest of you, but “Corpse Bride” has a good majority of Halloween in it, making it a decent place on this list.


- I don’t care if this is one of the Disney movies that is hated. I don’t care if this is one of the lesser-known Disney films. I looked it up, and it’s a safe guarantee that THIS fits for Halloween. I use to watch this movie as a kid, and it scared me. After watching it again, I can see why this is a Halloween movie. It’s centered around some dark fantasy, and above all, the music and visuals are pretty interesting and full of fright. There’s nothing really worth mentioning besides that. I fell in love with this movie after viewing it after all these years, and I just had to put it in the top 5. I don’t care if you disagree with me; this movie will always be a good one for an animated Halloween movie, if you’re looking for some dark fantasy and violence. ;)


- Tim *fucking* Burton’s latest stop-motioned film, and certainly not his last (Tim Burton’s stop-motioned version of The Addams Family has been confirmed.) “Frankenweenie” was one of his most classics when the original was released. After bringing it to life once again- this time in stop-motion- it worked once again. Though it’s not as popular as Jack Skellington's performance in “The Nightmare Before Christmas”, Victor Frankenstein delivers ghoulish fun and heart-warming moments as well. This may have to be the first modern stop-motioned film- in 3-D, no less! It’s very fun, heart-warming, and with good child-friendly horror elements; “Frankenweenie” is a good Halloween treat! 


- A lot of people are probably wanting this to be number one on this list, considering how it’s the most obsessive film that Laika has released; their first one, too, no doubt. Now THAT’S impressive! “Coraline” is basically about an 11-year-old girl escaping an alternative version of her own world, after wishing for a better life. The Other World turns out to be EVIL, and her Other Mother tires to replace her real eyes with buttons. At first, the film seems child-friendly, until we get to the 2nd act, and figure out that it begins to take a very dark turn. With a very creative and dark plot, “Coraline” takes number three! 


- Here’s why this film hits number two on this list: WITCHES, GHOSTS, AND ZOMBIES!!!!! “ParaNorman” is pretty much a stop-motioned version of “The 6th Sense”- another movie about a boy who can speak to the dead. This quirky, child-friendly film with MANY adult jokes and themes now only has many Halloween elements, but it also has a strong message: Bullying. It teaches us how we shouldn’t judge people, just be cause they’re different. It also teaches us how it’s okay to be scared, as long as it doesn’t change who we are. The messages is so strong, that it hits high on the list. Laika’s life messages are awesome, and what they’ve done with this ghoulish film has made them seem a little more mature. Again, with dark touches, hysterical humor, and touching, heart-warming messages, “ParaNorman” will always be my runner-up.

And now, my number 1 best animated Halloween movie IS…..



- All of you probably saw this one coming. I can’t blame you. When it comes to Tim *fucking* Burton, I’m a sucker for his work. This film not only focuses on Halloween, but also mainly focuses on Christmas. Which, by the way, I must add onto my “Top 10 Christmas” list. It pretty much puts Halloween in the center of Christmas, scaring people shitless! Even though this is mostly seen as a Christmas movie, there’s no doubt that this is a good Halloween treat! And I’m going to Disney World in Orlando, Florida next week, so this film is getting me pumped for that! :) I’ve always LOVED this movie, and it’ll always be my number one for both Halloween and Christmas. But mostly Halloween. 

Thank you,

Save Me - Chapter 5

As we got on the expressway, a slight panic started to set in. This was the first time I was taking all three girls on my own. Three little girls was a lot to take on considering the only living thing I have ever had to take care of, besides myself, for an extended period of time, were the flower pots on my balcony. And needless to say, those poor pots have had a rough life. Pushing the panic aside, I did a little silent prayer begging all who would listen that things would go smoothly and we’d all have a great time. Besides, it’s only three days!

The drive down from Ann Arbor to Chicago was the quickest 2 ½ hour drive I’ve ever driven. Thirty Seconds to Mars was blaring from the speakers, the sun was shining and we were all singing our hearts out.

Each girl had their favorite band member..except for me, I was waiting to see them live before I judged…solely on their musical talent, of course. Mackenzie was a “Jared” girl, which was obvious based on the amount of information that poured from her mouth about him. It’s amazing what this kid knew! He’s a singer and actor, he hikes, rock climbs, travels, he’s an environmental activist..the list was endless not to mention that he was totally hot with big blue eyes. Ahh so dreamy! Awww…he was her teenage crush.

Lily on the other hand was a straight up “Shannon” girl. I heard all about how much he loves coffee, rides motorcycles, he plays all kinds of instruments..another endless list! When she said he was “fun sized”, I paused but then thought I didn’t even WANT to ask what part of him she was talking about. Paige was a split, she said she didn’t love any of the three more than the other. She “all about the music”. THAT coming out of a 7 year-olds mouth was just hilarious considering she really didn’t understand what the songs were about. And, after thinking about what some of the songs WERE about, that was probably a good thing.

At their age, I was never that girl who lusted after rock stars or movie stars. I was the nerdy girl who was involved in science club and ran track. One Christmas, at the top of my list was Rosetta Stone. Yep, all I wanted was to learn French. You simply can not get more nerdy than that. It ended up serving me well though, I still speak fluent French. As I got older things changed and I “blossomed” as my mother would say. I lost the glasses, went from science club to cheerleading and snagged a motorcycle riding bad boy three years older than me as a boyfriend. Hmm, maybe I’ll end up a “Shannon” girl too!

SPLURGE GIFTS: handmade nakoma shawl in camel by goodcompanyco

i featured the other hues of this boho shawl earlier in 2015, but this camel one is at the top of my christmas list. it’s trendily printed with a native american-inspired design, so each wrap is OOAK, perfect for layering, and ready to rock.

beinginthedarkesthour-deactivat  asked:

The Christmas prompt where there's only one book left in the sale and they both want it with no idea what to do :)

“You’re an author, just write a new book,” she challenges, crossing her arms while he gives her an incredulous look.

“Why don’t you just pick a different book?” he shoots back.

“Why can’t you?” she replies coolly and Rick rubs at his eyes in frustration.

This woman is absolutely infuriating. He’s known her for two minutes and he can barely stand her. 

It’s five days until Christmas and Alexis had added a last minute addition to her list for Santa, which was sitting alone and on display right in front of him. But apparently this woman’s niece had done the exact same thing and here they stood, glaring each other down over the newest addition of a novel that was all the rage among ten year olds. 

"Okay how about this,” he tries, watching her quirk an eyebrow in interest and although he loathes this woman right now, the move has him noticing how gorgeous those hazel eyes of her really are. “You let me buy this book and,” he accentuates the conjunction, raising a hand in supplication when she appears as if she’s about to protest. “I will personally contact the author of the series, have her send a signed copy to your niece for a late Christmas gift.”

The woman softens at that, just barely, but enough for him to notice as she purses her lips in contemplation. 

“And you can’t choose this option because?” she questions.

“Because this is at the top of my daughter’s Christmas list and I’m not willing to wait,” he shrugs. “Listen, I’m not trying to be a jerk, especially not to you and not over something as silly as a book. I just - ever since my ex left, I try to make the holidays extra special for my kid and if I had known this was going to make it on to her Christmas list sooner, I would have come here yesterday when it was released.”

Her arms are still crossed, her lips still pursed, her eyes still pensive. 

“How do I know you’re not playing me?” she muses and Castle sighs, digging in his coat pocket and handing her Alexis’s Christmas list.

For the first time, her eyes turn warm, like liquid gold, and a tiny smile crawls across her lips at his daughter’s handwritten letter to Santa and her meager list of requests.

“She sounds sweet,” the woman murmurs, offering the list back to him, and he almost drops it, his eyes trained solely on the lovely lines of her face. 

“I’m sure your niece is too,” he gets out quickly and she nods.

“She is. Though, she’s not actually my niece. I don’t have any siblings, but she’s my best friend’s daughter, so I just-” The woman shrugs, diverting her eyes to her shoes. “I work a lot, never really get to see her, so I guess I wanted to make up for it by being the cool aunt.”

Oh, well, now he definitely feels like a jerk.

“She’ll appreciate a signed copy even more though,” she adds, seeming to notice his sudden guilt. “If you really can do that.”

“I can, I promise,” he assures her. “The author owes me a favor anyway.”

The woman offers him a beautiful lift of her lips and grabs the book, holding it out to him.

“Take it then.”

He brushes his fingers over hers, feeling the sizzle of the contact race through his veins, as he takes the book from her.

“I’m Kate, by the way,” she murmurs.

“I’m - you already know who I am,” he remembers, rubbing the back of his neck in embarrassment, watching her smile grow. 

“I do, Richard Castle,” she chuckles, trapping her bottom lip between her teeth. “I’ve known you for a while now.”

His brow hitches at that. “You - as in, you’re a fan?”

Kate shrugs, strolling away from him, but he chases after her. 

“Wait, let me pay for this, and then…”

She cocks her head, amusement glittering in her eyes as she assesses him with that unfaltering grin.

“And then what?”

“I could take you out for coffee?” he suggests, silently rejoicing when she mulls it over for a second before giving him a nod of approval. 

“We’ll get coffee,” she echoes, walking with him towards the checkout counter. “And then maybe you can sign one of my books.”

Major Christmas List Shakeup

Unbelievable turn of events here today. After two LONG years at the top of his Christmas list, my 4yo has unceremoniously dumped “An Apple” as his #1 Most Requested gift idea. What high-powered must-have seasonal sensation could’ve possibly knocked off that honey crisp heavy weight?
