Okay but this thought came into my head &it won't go away but imagine Sterek(these idiots that I just LOVE)being best friends & Stiles has a huge crush &is trying to get over it by dating someone else and Derek being the truest bro that he is (yeah sure Derek that's it) comes up w a plan to pretend they're dating to get the guy jealous & ask stiles out (he's totally not trying to woo stiles w his romance skills nope nuh UH!) and Stiles is just like this is not helping but don't stop ever please
THIS IS ONE OF MY FAVOURITE TROPES EVER. Especially when they are best friends because this possibly means years of pining.
Stiles being certain he’s going to marry Derek from the age of six. He gets Claudia to pick out Batman china patterns with him that first day he comes home from school, yelling that he made a new friend WHO HATES JACKSON JUST AS MUCH!!
Derek only realising he has “more than friends” feelings for Stiles when Stiles starts dating someone because, hey, what’s some other dude doing laughing at Stiles’ stupid jokes and why does THIS dude get to stare at Stiles like he’s the universe, that’s HIS job and - oh, wait.
I’m really tempted to write a fic of this, if I can. I just love this kind of thing beyond words.
