    Summary

    In the glade where the star had fallen, the gloom of the gnarled old woods was deeper than night, save around the blackberry bush that had broken his fall: the grass and the battered leaves were now luminous, moon-touched. There was a long pause, broken by the sounds of twittering insects and the forest folk, then, there was a loudly groaned, “Fuck!”

    The star rubbed a hand over his eyes, then flinched and held his hand up, spreading unfamiliar fingers up against the night sky. He turned his hand this way and that, curling and uncurling fingers, then he let out a softer, yet just as vehement “fuck!” and sat up, wincing.

    Summary

    Nobody crosses the Wall. But Belladonna Took has other plans and does just that. Years later, her son Bilbo Baggins also crosses the wall, chasing after a fallen star for his cousin Lobelia and his true heritage. He expects to find a hunk of valuable metal, not this grumpy, stately dwarf. He also does not expect to be chased across the land by orcs, encounter a bunch of Ereborian princes trying to restore the Arkenstone and become king, get captured by a jovial band of pirates, or find the love of his life.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    After that, it's all downhill. No one can tell a difference because there really isn't one at first. His eyes shine a little brighter and his skin flushes easier, but he says it's because of the rush of adrenaline from Derek shoving him in to walls and joy he gets from being a part of something.

    -----

    Everything gets shot to hell the weekend a rogue group of hunters sneaks into town. The pack is unprepared so of course Stiles and Allison are there. The hunters outnumber them 2:1 and Stiles realizes a bit belatedly that they're fucked.

    He glances at his pack, his pack, and realizes that he can't let anything happen to them. Because if they go, he goes. They are one unit.

    Derek is in front of him, half wolfed out and snarling and Stiles realizes that the wolves have made a protective circle around him and Allison. He reaches for her hand, gripping it tightly in reassurance and closes his eyes.

    He thinks of the pack and of Scott and Jackson and Lydia, he thinks of Allison and her laughter and her spirit, he thinks of Derek, thinks of his protection, and his body heats up.
    He can't open his eyes and he can't stop himself once he's started, but he can hear, faintly, the sounds of the hunters running away.

    And then he hears nothing.

    -----

    When he wakes up, the first thing he hears is Jackson's voice. "What the fuck was that?"

    Stiles can only groan in response, trying to sit up. He feels hands on his back and shoulders and when he looks he sees Allison and Derek helping him sit up. "Hrgh," he says.

    Scott's looking down on him, eyes slightly wide in wonder but with a huge grin on his face. "Dude, you haven't done that in years!" he exclaims and Stiles wants to punch him in the balls.

    "Shut up," Stiles whispers because his ears are still ringing a little bit and his skin feels hot. He hears Jackson ask again and then a muffled groan as Lydia thwacks him in the head.

    "I-" Stiles starts because how the fuck do you tell your only friends you are part star?!

    "I'm, uh, a..." and he trails off again. Really, there is no easy way to say it.

    "You're a star." Derek says, full stop, and Stiles whips his head to look at him, which, not good for the dizziness he's still feeling.

    Derek never breaks eye contact with him and Stiles can feel himself start to warm again.

    "Yeah."

    "What the fuck do you mean 'you're a star?'" he hears Jackson say followed by another grunt of pain. Stiles doesn't look over, can't, because Derek is still looking him in the eye.

    Stiles has so many questions for Derek like how he knew and what else he knows about stars and why didn't he say anything, but for now he just lets him and Allison pull him to his feet and lead him back to Derek's.

    -----

    They explain it to Jackson in the simplest of terms. This just means that Allison and Lydia are interested but bored, but after an hour the whole story is out. Stiles comes from a long line of stars and it wasn't until he started feeling truly happy again that he started glowing again. Scott looks sheepish for a moment until Stiles cuffs him on the head and tells him it's not his fault. And Derek, Derek just sits there with his usual stoic expression. Every time Stiles looks over at him, the shine gets brighter until finally Jackson breaks in with "Jesus Christ, knock it off already" and pulls out his sunglasses.

    -----

    After that it's like nothing has changed except for everything. The pack gets used to Stiles' shine and over time he learns to control it. It's only when Derek looks at him with a mischievous glint in his eye or when he lets his fingers linger too long on Stiles' skin that Stiles can't control his glow.

    And basically the entire neighborhood knows when Derek kisses Stiles for the first time.

    -----

    Derek likes to see how far he can push Stiles into shining before the younger man kicks everyone out of the house. He claims it's to help Stiles learn control, but the almost feral grin on his face as he wraps around his star gives him away.

    It's almost hilarious how many times the cops get called because of the amount of light coming out of the Hale house at all hours of the night.

    -----

    Over time Stiles learns to control his star. He's able to go to school and college and get a job and be around people without causing a fuss.

    But when he's around the pack, when he's around his family, well it doesn't bother them any if they have dinner by Stileslight.

    Summary

    Bright star, would I were stedfast as thou art—
