This idea wont leave me alone and I dont think I can write it very well myself- Derek and Stiles are at some sort of convention (though not together, since they dont know each other) and they go to the same place to eat and since they're alone and the place is packed they end up sitting at the same table. Turns out one of them is 'secretly' the person they'd been there to see (like a panel-hoster or something?)
“What are you here for?” a guy next to Derek asks.
Derek looks up and the man is kind of beautiful in thick rimmed glasses and a beanie, wearing a plaid shirt over t-shirt and he is just really adorable. Derek is stunned for a second before he remembers he has to talk. “Came here to see the panel about diversity writing,” Derek answers. “You?”
“Same!” the man says excitedly with a smile. “Glad there will be other people there besides me!”
“So far you got one,” Derek laughs.
“I’m also here for the panels on Vampire Diaries and Reign but don’t tell anyone, okay?” he says, his voice barely above a whisper.
“My lips are sealed,” Derek tells him.
The man looks at Derek’s lips, his eyes staying there a little too long before his eyes blink and flick back up to Derek’s. “Sorry. You’re just…insanely gorgeous. I can’t be blamed here.”
“Yes, you can,” Derek snorts.
“Very true,” the man says, holding up a hand in apology. “Fully my fault. I’m very sorry. Can you forgive me?”
Derek nods. “But only this time.”
The man nods and smiles. “So what are you most looking forward to the panel?”
“I don’t know,” Derek sighs even though he knows exactly what he’s looking forward to. “I love all the writers that are speaking.”
“Yeah?” the man smiles widely. “I’m a huge fan of Boyd and Reyes. Their works are amazing.”
“Stilinski as well,” Derek adds because he has to.
The man laughs. “Almost forgot about him. I’m so happy there’s a whole panel about diversity and they’re actually including diverse writers. The last time I saw this panel, it was a bunch of white, straight men, so this year they amped it up a bit. Could be better, but I think it’ll be a good talk.”
“I’m really looking forward to it. All these writers have changed my life in some way,” Derek admits with a smile.
“Even Stilinski?” the man asks like he is genuinely surprised.
The man opens his mouth to say something but then looks down at his watch. “I’ve gotta run, but maybe I’ll see you at the panel?”
“Hopefully,” Derek says because he is very interested in this man, who then waves and runs from the table like he really is in a hurry.
