Nimblenap is very sweet and small and m u s c u l a r she’s a healer and a scholar of the snow elves and she got her name because she has a habit of sneaking off to sleep at inconvenient times and no one can ever fuckin find her
I fully intended to post this list months ago, but I got distracted by real life nonsense and by reading a number of other wonderful fics in the meantime. Here, to accompany the short fics list from the same time period, is a batch of longer ones that you may have missed from earlier this year. They’re a wonderful mix of AUs and demonstrate this fandom’s astounding capacity for crafting fresh new worlds for Derek and Stiles to find each other in.
Absolutely delightful in every way. Derek - bored and unmotivated, working at his family-run funeral home - meets Stiles, an unstoppable force of nature who sweeps into his life and turns everything upside down and sideways. Their dynamic is pitch-perfect, with just the right mix of hilarious antagonism and thinly veiled attraction.
This is mpreg done wonderfully right. It spins off a different version of Beacon Hills, with pregnant werefox Stiles, Deputy Cora Hale, and an EMT named Derek who drains the pain of his contractions and lingers shyly on the edges of his life until he’s let in for good. It strikes exactly the right tone of fluffy relationship development, with the joys and agonies of early parenthood thrown in to round out the picture.
If you have the slightest interest in Hot Single Dad Derek Hale - and let’s be real, why would you not fling yourself whole-heartedly against that scenario? - this should be your new go-to fic. It captures the sharp, exciting pangs of new relationships, balanced against the responsibilities inherent in raising and loving a child. Delicately treading that tricky tightrope of relationship negotiation, it paints a realistic portrait of what it means to fold someone new into your life.
Pulling its story back to Alpha-powered Derek of the early seasons, this fic explores what life would be like if Stiles rejected Derek’s offer of the bite. While he may have no intention of becoming a werewolf, that doesn’t mean he’s actually rejected Derek in his entirety, nor the idea of helping him form a pack to be reckoned with. This is a refreshing return to Season-One-style characterizations, with intriguingly fleshed out storylines.
Hi my name is Kylo Dark'ness Dementia Raven Ren and I have long ebony black hair (that’s how I got my name) that reaches my mid-shoulders and icy blue eyes like limpid tears and a lot of people tell me I look like Anikin Skywalker (AN: if u don’t know who he is get da hell out of here!). I’m not related to Emperor Palpatine but I wish I was because he’s a major fucking villain. I have the force but my lightsaber is a red upside down cross (AN: 666!). I have pale white skin. I have an army called the first order where I’m in the leader (I’m seventeen). I’m a goth (in case you couldn’t tell) and I wear mostly black. I love Hot Topic and I buy all my clothes from there. For example today I was wearing a black shirt with a matching black cape on it, black pants, a black mask like the one Darth Vader used to wear (AN: he’s so cool!) and s pair of black boots. I was wearing white foundation, black eyeliner and red eye shadow. I was walking outside Jakku. It was snowing and raining so there was no sun, which I was very happy about. A lot of Jedi stared at me. I put up my middle finger at them.
