    Summary

    “It depends entirely on how you look at it, I guess,” Stiles shrugs. “On the one hand, instant healing and the apparently inherited ability to pull off leather at all times. On the other, serious attitude problems and a suspicious disappearance of eyebrows.”

    “Even Derek’s?” Danny snorts, “that’s a lot of eyebrow to lose.”

    “I know,” Stiles agrees. “You should see, it’s so weird. Every time I want to ask him where they go, except he’d totally eat my face off.”

    “There are worse ways to die.”

    Summary

    Sometimes, on very rare occasions, he welcomes me with open arms, and clings to my clothing as he shakes himself nearly to pieces; even more rarely, he will bid me to blow out the candles and come to him, and there in the darkness, he writhes under me, his small body feverish and damp with sweat; he clutches at my shoulders, my arms, my neck, my hair; and his voice is full of the desperate ecstasy of one who is trying to forget his suffering by drowning it in pleasure.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    I loved the way both of their hard edges clashed against each other before they finally found their fit. The characterization in this story is brilliant all around. But my favorite thing about "Phases of the Weaker Heart" is watching Allison work through the pain and anger of her mother's death and finally begin to heal. The author really digs into Allison's emotions, and she isn't afraid to face up to the more difficult ones. The result is a complicated and engaging character study. Readers can relate to this Allison, even when they don't agree with her actions. It's the kind of nuanced treatment Allison deserved in season 3, but never got. I'm glad this story finally does her justice.

    “Well,” Danny says after a few minutes of heavy silence. “I guess you have to ask yourself how badly do you want him to be pack? If you really want to connect with someone—anyone—you can. You just have to figure out the right connector.”

    “You guys, I figured it out,” Scott enthuses. “A true alpha’s powers come from love and acceptance. We just need to love and accept Derek. Body, mind, and soul.”

    “Scotty,” Stiles says slowly, “are you suggesting…? What are you suggesting.”

    “You heard the alpha,” Danny drawls. “We need to love and accept Derek’s body. And mind and soul.”

    Bookmarker's Notes

    "Hide of a Life War" takes place in a future version of season two canon, where Stiles has managed to survive to his senior year without cluing in his dad about werewolves. Sick of his son's continuous lies, Sheriff Stilinski drags Stiles off on a father-son bonding expedition. When drug traffickers hijack the bus they are on and take all of the passengers hostage, Stiles and his dad find themselves working together to keep the other passengers safe. I love the relationship between Stiles and his father in this story. The fissures that Stiles's lies have left in their relationship are heartbreaking, as is the sheriff's determination not to lose Stiles. Etharei does a lovely job with Stiles's and Derek's poignant romance. The two of them broke up shortly before the story's beginning, and the flashbacks we see of their relationship are sweet and painful in turns. The emotional arcs serve as a solid counterpoint to the ongoing action of the hostage situation, and the resolution at the end is entirely satisfying.

    AU from 1x04, "Magic Bullet."

      "Why the hell did you do that?" Derek demanded. "Why would you bond with me? You were going to leave me for dead, you didn't want anything to do with helping me."

      "Okay, first of all, that was like two hours ago and I've grown a lot as a person since then," Stiles said.

    In this universe, soul bonds are a well-known (though rare) occurrence, though werewolves are still a secret. Stiles binds himself to Derek to lend him strength during the wolfsbane-poisoning incident in "Magic Bullet." Afterwards, the two try their best not to consummate the bond, despite every instinct drawing them both towards it. There is some lovely hurt/comfort in Stiles initiating the bond to save Derek's life, and Derek fighting against something a bond that the terrified, lonely part of him desperately wants in order to keep Stiles from becoming a target of hunters. also enjoyed the discussion of the consent issues in Stiles initiating a soul bond with an unconscious Derek. There were also some nice cameos from Scott, the sheriff, and Melissa. In the end, it is a satisfying story of two strangers coming together to create something whole and good.

    Summary

    Stiles starts writing to Derek after he and Cora leave town.


    ~

    He gets a few more letters after that, mostly full of Stiles complaining about life in Beacon Hills, telling him what everyone else is up to. Derek likes getting mail from Stiles but isn’t sure if he likes hearing about the humdrum dramas of Beacon Hills all the time. It makes him feel like he’s never left, and not in a good way.

     

    Stiles asks him questions in his letters, questions about what he’s been doing since he’s back in Brooklyn, if Cora is doing OK, what his favorite flavor ice cream is. Derek spreads the letters out on his bed and re-reads them all, before picking up a pen and starting to answer all of Stiles’ questions.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    This is a contemporary take on the epistolary story. After Derek leaves Beacon Hills after the season two finale, Stiles begins writing to him. Their relationship progresses through letters and text messages. I like the way the_misfortune_teller distinguishes the tone of the different mediums -- text messages for insults and flirting, letters for more serious confessions. The images embedded in the story are a great touch! I really liked watching their relationship unfold throughout the course of the story, and I'm glad the author chose not to end with the obligatory sex scene. This slow-build felt a lot more realistic to the relationship dynamics the_misfortune_teller established through the epistolary format. But if you do want sex, make sure to check out the sequel! It also gives us a deeper look it gave us at Derek and Cora's relationship, and of Derek and Laura's old life in New York.

    Summary

    Stiles is fairly certain that a case could be made for every bad thing in his life coming back to Peter Hale. This time it's pissing off a powerful witch, who retaliated by swapping Stiles and Derek a la Freaky Friday, because sure. That makes sense. Um, there are GPAs on the line, not to mention the whole thing where his dad wants to shoot Derek on sight. Except who he sees as Derek is actually Stiles, and Stiles did not sign up for filicide.

    Great. Wait...does this mean he's the Alpha until they figure this out? Holy. Shit.
    ****

    Derek had stood in front of the bathroom mirror for a few minutes trying to control the panic as he saw himself as Stiles. As the loud mouthed human friend of the pack. He was going to kill Peter. He was going to kill the witch, then he was going to kill Peter. Maybe even resurrect him again just to kill him all over.

    They were going to have to play this cool. They would have to stay calm and focused. Which is of course why the universe threw him into this situation with someone who physically couldn't be calm and focused.

    Of course.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    When a spell causes Stiles and Derek to switch bodies, they decide to keep up the facade so they won't have to tell the sheriff about werewolves. As Stiles tries to master his new Alpha powers (and hold Peter's creepiness at bay), Derek finds himself stepping into the role of Sheriff Stilinski's son, along with all of the emotional fall-out it brings. Add Stiles's new ability to literally smell Derek's pain and loneliness (combined with his own loneliness and feelings of inadequacy post-season 2) and you have the perfect recipe for two characters learning how to understand and appreciate each other.

    It took me awhile to really get into this story, but once the body switch occurs, it really picks up speed. The hurt/comfort here is heavy on the comfort, in that delightfully over-the-top way that some slash stories are. Hand-holding and cuddling abound long before Derek and Stiles work up to their first kiss. In another mood, it might have been too much, but when I found it last week, it was exactly what I needed. I think I've read it three times since then. I love this take on Derek, who is adorably affectionate and shy once he feels secure in a relationship, and on Stiles, who is quick to take care of the people he loves. At its heart, "Trust Fall" is a story about two deeply lonely individuals finding solace in each other, and it's well-written to boot! Definitely try this one if you're in the need of a little emotional pick-me-up yourself.

    Summary

    “Stiles, uh. You know I’m totally on your side? Like, I’ll never not be on your side, ever. But you know that weed’s kind of different for werewolves, right?”

    Stiles mashes his face into Scott’s chest, tries to burrow down under the comforter. Scott sighs, pulls back and waits until Stiles is looking at him.

    “I know. Just—don’t try and make me be the adult here,” he says, hates the plaintive tone his voice has taken on.

    “He’s happy, Stiles. And I can’t believe you’d ever think I’d do that to you, buddy,” he says, ruffling Stiles's hair with a grin as Stiles slaps his hand away and hunkers down again, his ear against Scott’s chest, their feet tangled together.

    Derek Hale comes back to Beacon Hills stoned and happy. Stiles tries not to resent him for it, and mostly fails.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    The first paragraph of this story reads like the set-up to a joke, with a post-3A Derek Hale rolling back into Beacon Hills in a VW van and sandals. But, as I'm learning to anticipate with llasah's writing, the joke turns serious pretty quickly. A year after sacrificing himself to the Nemeton, Stiles still can't sleep through the night and suspects that he's slowly losing his mind. He's angry, exhausted, and stretched about as tight as he can get without breaking. Needless to say, Stiles doesn't react well when Derek shows up, full of inner peace and ready to talk about his tragic past. The strength of this story is its many contrasts: the calm, relaxed Derek vs. terrified, angry Stiles, new!Derek vs. old!Derek, the humor of the prose through most of the story vs. the disturbingly real imagery in Stiles's nightmares.

    While some readers might have trouble buying Derek as a cheerful stoner, llasah let just enough hints of his old personality bleed through for me to buy it. This is a Derek without his knife-edge of anger and desperation, who can throw out insights about people with a resigned air of self-awareness rather than projection. When an encounter with some wolfsbane-laced weed leaves Derek feral halfway through the story, we get to see another side of him, without human awareness filtering out his wolf instincts. The three Dereks (stoner!Derek, feral!Derek, and old, angry!Derek) form a fractured, but beautiful whole, and as Stiles pieces them together in his mental picture of Derek, he begins to get a better grasp of who he is, as well. The other thing I love about this story are Scott and the sheriff. Both of them have been focused on taking care of Stiles post-Nemeton. There are some adorable scenes between Scott and Stiles and the sheriff and Stiles that left me grinning like an idiot. I also loved how llasah portrayed Scott stepping into the role of true alpha. The dynamics between Scott and Derek were great, and Scott's focus on taking care of his pack felt absolutely true to character to me. If you follow my recs, you know that I'm a sucker for stories about healing, and this one definitely fits the bill.

    Everyone knows when you go back in time, you shouldn't step on an ant, just in case you accidentally kill your own grandparent or something. But what happens when you go back in time and, uh, accidentally interrupt the one event that apparently made the Grumpiest Alpha in Town into a ball of mindless manpain?

    Well, if Marty McFly can do it, so can Stiles Stilinski. All he has to do is get Derek and Paige to fall in love before he gets pulled back to his own time. And before he makes anything worse. That's easy as pie, right? Right?

    Stiles’ Jeep grinds to a halt, he sees someone running through the rain, he's not expecting it to be Derek. He's not expecting a Derek without any memories either, or an Alpha pack that's coming for all of them. He probably should've, because lately nothing goes the way he expects.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    I love a good amnesia story, and "Our Memories Are Numbered" is one of the best in this fandom. While driving through the woods one day, Stiles comes across an amnesiac Derek on the run from something he can't remember. As they try to piece together the puzzle of Derek's missing memories, Stiles finds himself increasingly drawn to this newer, more carefree Derek -- and the feeling is obviously mutual.

    The great irony of Teen Wolf amnesia fic is that the trauma of Derek losing his memories is always less than the trauma of getting them back. Without the shadow of his family's death hanging over him, Derek is confident and magnetic, almost carefree. I love watching him interact with the pack. There are some great moments with Isaac and Peter, especially. I also really liked the way Rufflefeather wrote Sheriff Stilinski. The sheriff's initial suspicion towards Derek rang true to me, as did his begrudging acceptance later in the story. My favorite aspect of this story, though, is the chemistry between amnesiac!Derek and Stiles. This is a Derek who knows exactly who and what he wants, and without Kate's influence, he sees no problem with trying to take it. Stiles, meanwhile, desperately wants to succumb to Derek's advances, but is trying to hold off out of respect for the Derek he knows. The mutually-acknowledged UST is smoldering in this, and when the sex finally does happen, it is well worth the wait. As befits an amnesia fic, there is plenty of angst in this story, but it stems naturally from the characters and the situations and never feels artificial. The ending is deeply satisfying to me. I've read this story a good half-dozen times, and probably will read it several times more before I've finished with this fandom
