    Summary

    It is like steel, the determination inside of you that tells you you will achieve this, that you will find him. Nothing will stop you. You are two sides of the same coin, you and he: he cannot escape you forever. Bucky runs. Steve follows.

    Summary

    "Nobody else has seen you here except your mother, and she is the only one who knows, even though it does not do the same thing to her. She knows because she is the one who built it, the sick golden space sliding around the edges of the box in which you have been placed for all eternity. You do not know if she could have done it more kindly than she has done it but you do know that she could have been crueler. You do not ask."

    Loki, during and after Thor 2. (And, of course, before.)

    Summary

    "This is the first thing you can remember thinking about him: that you were curious to know why he was standing behind his mother, his scrawny little body tucked away in the long folds of her skirts, instead of out beside his father like his brother."

    Sif and Loki grow up.

    Summary

    "The last time he saw Stiles was almost two years ago, now, in the winter. He was taller than Derek remembered, his face harder, his shoulders broader. His hands looked like a man’s hands and his face looked like a man’s face but when he smiled he was Stiles again, doofy and slightly terrifying."

    Stiles moves back home.

    Summary

    "Scott would not have thought, years ago in the orphanage, that being befriended by Stiles would ultimately mean sneaking into the Archduke of Russia’s residence in Paris in order for Stiles to chase after the homeless man of his dreams, but he’s gotten very good, over the years, at rolling with the punches."

    Summary

    "To say that Scott and Stiles are surprised when Derek manages to turn into a wolf – a big one, an actual real-sized wolf that probably weighs twice as much as Stiles on a good day – would be an understatement of the highest caliber, but even so, they’re not half as surprised as Derek himself."

    Derek changes into a wolf. He decides to stay that way.

    Summary

    Stiles decides midway through the summer that he’s sick of never having any fun, and drags Scott to an amusement park. Derek comes, because of danger. Or something.

    Summary

    "You’re asleep, when it happens: you know because you wake up, heart pounding in your chest, fangs digging into your lower lip hard enough to draw blood. For a second you have no idea what is going on at all, and then you think, Stiles."

    From this Tumblr gifset. Prompt: "When Stiles uses his head to foil the alpha pack one too many times, they strike at his heart by stealing the sheriff’s memories of his only son."

    Summary

    "They look like – nice people, you suppose, though you don’t really believe in nice people anymore, if you ever did in the first place. Your mother was nice, but your mother was in all ways an exception to the general logic and tenor of your life. You have not met a nice person since." Isaac switches foster families; Derek starts to wake up.

    Summary

    "You run into him at the drug store, buying toothpaste and toilet paper and band-aids and a very suspicious bottle of hand lotion, and enough vitamins for at least seven people."

    Summary

    You don’t know why you’re surprised: you really, really don’t. Your life has been one giant supernatural clusterfuck since you were sixteen years old and you still get blindsided by it half the time, still can’t quite force yourself to automatically assume that everything that goes wrong in your life has, at its base, some association with the otherworldly.

    Stiles' house burns down. Derek comes a-calling.

    Summary

    It was not until the second child had come, two years later, that the man realized how truly fortunate he had been in being granted Laura as his firstborn, until he understood how profoundly like him Laura was: for the second child was a boy, and he did not come out screaming, or on time; his mother delivered him into the world two weeks after he was due to arrive, and when he finally landed in the midwife’s waiting hands, he simply opened his clear green eyes and stared at each of them in turn, as though he was not surprised to see them there, as though he knew them already. 

    Patrick Hale, through the years. Inspired by an original character in this boy, half-destroyed.

    Summary

    "You don’t remember, anymore, where exactly you were when you found out that she was dead. You remember almost everything else about her dying, though."

    Stiles Stilinski has always been the person who will do what other people don't want to. It's hard, though, when your friends keep trying to protect you. Post-S2.

    Summary

    She had the recorder in her hands but put it down without starting it up. “You look old,” she said instead, folding her fingers together, and I was so startled I burst out laughing. I did look old: my hair was in-between black and silver, and there were lines etched all over my face. I saw myself every day in the mirror, and every day I looked older.

    “Thanks,” I said, and when she smiled it was just a fragmentary thing, there and then gone again, sad but not bitter, not exactly.

    It was inevitable, really, that they were going to meet again.

    Summary

    The first postcard comes two months later. It’s sent to Maggie’s house, it’s not signed, and it’s not in handwriting you recognize.

    Summary

    "Bodies – those are something you understand, mostly; you know immediately exactly how much smaller he is than the last time you saw him. Too skinny, too pale; his cheeks cave in a little too much, from his face. He’s a shadow of something: he looks like the dead walking. His hands are stuffed down in the pockets of his hoodie and he looks tentative but not afraid."

    Derek Hale used to have a family. Now, he's got a teenage human more trouble than he's worth. Post-S2.

    Summary

    "He remembers clearly the first time he saw her. He did not speak to her for a long time after that: she was far away from him. She was short then, and skinny in her athleticism; she grew up taller and stronger than you would have expected from her just barely adolescent body. But her hair was just the same." Loki, falling, remembers.
