    Summary

    Steve's rarely been touched in a way that didn't equate to some kind of hurt. The cold metal of a stethoscope against his frail chest or the sting of a needle drawing yet another blood sample, when he was a sickly child. The bone-shattering punches thrown by the neighborhood bullies on the playground, or by his own father at home, drunk and wild. His mother, weak and clutching at him as she grew more incoherent with the drugs as the cancer ate away at her insides. Touch was something he shied away from, something he told himself he just didn't want.

    Except...he did. He just didn't know how.

    Until he finds a flyer for a local "affection and intimacy services" program.

    In which Steve learns how to become comfortable with touch, and there is one very good dog, and a slow-burn romance.

    Summary

    “What? It’s totally an improvement. He’s not scowling, or dating bad guys, or slinking around in unsanitary places. Still a bit paranoid, but what can you do. At least he’s a lot easier to get along with when you can buy his affections with ear rubs.”

    “And you always wanted a dog,” Sheriff added wryly.

    “And I always wanted a dog.”

    Summary

    As the precocious heir of a diamond magnate and a famous designer, Arthur lived his entire life sheltered, protected, nurtured and spoiled. He always knew that he would have to step out from behind the scenes and into the limelight to run the family business some day, but he never expected that it would happen so soon or that he would encounter resistance from a board of directors who believe that his disability makes him unfit to lead.

    Merlin has stood on every stage in every city in the world, performing to critical acclaim, but after years of globetrotting, he's well and truly burnt out. He didn't quit -- he ran away from stardom, dropping to obscurity in the blink of an eye, forgotten, just another face in the crowd. He's aimless and without purpose until a friend asks him to fill in on a job.

    Neither Arthur nor Merlin are looking for salvation. They don't think there's any for them, that things are just too rotten, too far gone. But in the end, Arthur's quiet strength will be a balm to Merlin's broken soul, and it will be in Merlin's steadfast faith that Arthur finds courage.

    Summary

    Stiles hasn't come home. The Sheriff and Stiles have an agreement: Stiles is home before midnight every night, and he doesn't have to haul Derek Hale back to jail. So he drives out to the Hale house to drag his wayward son home—only thing is, it's not there anymore. What little had been left of it is laid flat across its foundations, and in the middle of it all, half buried beneath old burned out drywall, is Stiles' Jeep.

    The list of suspects is pretty much limitless, now that the Sheriff knows just what horrors his little town holds. And with the strange company his son has begun to keep, he hardly knows where to start, but Peter Hale, Chris Argent, and Alan Deaton make the top of the list.

    Summary

    It shouldn't come as a surprise to Derek that even in the darkest of places, Stiles can be a guiding light, a moon to follow out of the night.
