    Summary

    It’s kind of some sort of sick irony that his dad is now equating bruises and evasive answers with abusive relationship rather than my son might be a serial killer. He doesn’t think it’s necessarily an improvement.

    The sheriff’s face couldn’t be colder, and the rift between them couldn’t be deeper. “Get dressed,” he says. “If I ever see you near this man again, I will shoot him.”

    Stiles searches Derek’s eyes across the room, silently begs him to understand, when it occurs to him that Derek already does. He already knows Stiles will pick his father over anyone, will try to keep him safe with his dying breath. And he knows he’ll try to keep Derek safe as well.

    “Six months until I turn eighteen,” he says quietly, and feels his father tense beside him, hears the hitch in his breath.

    Summary

    The last thing Stiles expects when he walks into Lydia’s exclusive S&M club is to rescue a sub who’s obviously been mistreated for a long time. His name is Derek, and when he awkwardly reaches out, asking Stiles to be his Dom, the urge to shield Derek from more pain is too strong for Stiles to resist. But Derek is still recovering from his past and learning how to set boundaries, so they have to take things slow.

    Summary

    Play with it once, and it follows you home.

    Stiles goes out on Christmas night. It's okay, he's seventeen now, and the Sheriff remembers enough about that age and the one right after it to know that sometimes these things get worse before they get better. He just tells him to be home by county curfew, puts the game on, and it's okay.

    And it's a long kiss. Not a first one, and not an innocent one. They go on, falling into each other and smiling like Stiles is anywhere near old enough to understand what he's doing. Stiles says something close between them, and Hale laughs.

    When he physically lifts Stiles, hands under his thighs and carrying him back through the open door while Stiles wraps his legs around him, the Sheriff finally looks away.

    Summary

    Derek tries really hard to do the right thing, Stiles thinks Derek's idea of the right thing is the wrong thing, and John does his best to help.

     "Is, uh--is Stiles home?" Hale is staring at the ground and his shoulders are so tense that John's tempted to say 'Boo!' just to see what'll happen.

    "Their faces go from happy to oh shit in the blink of an eye. Derek rolls them over, pulling the covers over Stiles and putting himself between John and Stiles. It's--it makes John uncomfortable. What does Derek think John's going to do?"
