Monday 8:27am
I woke up with you on my mind.
You called me babe last night —
my heart is still pounding.

Tuesday 10:53pm
Today I realized we won’t work.
What we are is hurting her.
And I think she matters more to me than you do.

Wednesday 11:52pm
I broke things off with you today.
She barely said a word.
I’ve never regretted anything more than this.

Thursday 4:03pm
I shouldn’t have sent that message.
You shouldn’t have been so okay with receiving it.

Friday 9:57pm
I almost messaged you today.
I didn’t.

Saturday 8:49pm
I’m walking around town in search of alcohol.
They say that liquor numbs the pain of having a broken heart.
I want to put that to the test.

Sunday 2:32am
I heard you texted a girl you’ve never spoken to before.
I wonder if it’s because you’re trying to replace me.
I can’t help but wish you weren’t.
I thought I was irreplaceable.

—  a week with you on my mind, c.j.n.

The way she smiles at his jersey and smells it with a tear rolling down her face because she misses him so much. Brb gonna go cry.

Stiles hates the new guy at the office. Derek’s a natural at everything the job throws at him, whereas Stiles still sometimes struggles to use the fax machine. Derek’s really nice too – he’ll bring coffee for the whole team and always asks if everyone’s okay. Stiles… doesn’t do that. The biggest problem of all? Since Derek’s arrival Stiles just. can’t. focus. He zones out in meetings because he’s too busy trying to work out the color of Derek’s eyes. He’s missing deadlines because he gets distracted wondering if Derek likes guys, if Derek’s seeing someone, if Derek would keep his glasses on whilst they– Derek’s very distracting is the point, and it’s starting to affect Stiles’ work. So, yes. Stiles hates Derek. Still loves to watch him leave though.

Looking back, I can’t remember the truth. I blew everything out of proportion so I could feel the hurt and betrayal and write about it in vivid detail. It was my own method of torture. My own undoing; and I enjoyed every second of it.

So, if Chess is Stiles’ game. Stiles making Derek his King meant that he believed Derek was to be saved at ALL COSTS, or the game was over. 

While under torment from a trickster spirit wanting chaos & strife, Stiles basically pleaded with anyone who knew him well enough to understand the board, to protect Derek at all costs.

The scene with Derek/Peter, about the board, Derek cannot fathom someone actually caring about him so much. Peter gets it.

A/N: so I found this sitting in my drafts and at one point it was probably going to be a full-length fic but since I’m lazy and have no inspiration have it as a little drabble thingy instead


Katarina Bishop was on a schedule, and her boyfriend was totally not helping.

Hale had clipped on his harness and was perched on the windowsill, about to zipline into the night, except for the tiny fact that he still.

Hadn’t.

Moved.
