    Summary

    Chris carries the kid in on a rainy afternoon.
    “Found him just outside the perimeter,” he says as he lowers the limp body onto one of the mattresses. “I’m not sure he’ll make it.”
    Derek takes a look at the kid’s deathly pale skin, the black edges of his blunt fingernails, the long ragged gash running down his side, caked with dried blood and dirt, and for some reason he thinks, he’ll make it, all right.

    Summary

    A cursed amulet forces Derek to hear everyone's thoughts. He doesn't much like what he hears, at least until Stiles comes to rescue him from starvation.

    Summary

    “I'm saying – let's fake it.”

    Derek blinks at him. Hard. Stiles never knew that someone could physically make a blink look hard, but there Derek goes, slamming his lids together like he's fucking exercising them. “Fake it.”

    Pretend, dumbass,” he backhands Derek lightly on his upper arm. “Pretend like we're doing as well as our parents want us to and then they'll be off our backs, right?”

    “We don't have to pretend anything, Stiles,” Derek says evenly, in a tone that suggests he'd much rather be yelling. “We're literally soulmates.”

    “That's the beauty of it! It's going to be so fucking easy. I can't believe we never thought of this before,” he runs his hands through his hair and shakes his head in amazement, grinning from ear to ear. “Holy shit. I can't believe I just solved all our problems for us, man.”

    Summary

    “Need I remind you of Jennifer? Kate?” Stiles says. “Or Matt. I totally saw the evilness in Matt, like I see the evilness in Emma now.”

    “She’s a kindergarten teacher. She works with toddlers. Evil people don’t willingly choose to work with babies.”

    “Unless they’re trying to raise them to their full evil potential. Or eat them.”

    “Derek’s girlfriend is not eating babies, Stiles,” Scott reprimands.

    Summary

    Derek had sworn to serve the revolution against Queen Katherine knowing full well that the cost of such treason could be dear. He'd thought he was ready to sacrifice anything for freedom... But he wasn't counting on the sacrifice being his marriage to Stiles.

    - OR -

    “Can I tempt you to the floor for this dance?” The flirtatious tone rouses him from his dire musings, and Derek turns to see his husband.

    “I’m afraid not,” Derek says, gentling his tone to take the sting out of the refusal. Stiles’ smile tightens, almost imperceptibly, and he nods graciously. He’s used enough to such rejection, Derek thinks with a pang. He’s used to lonely dinners as well, and going to sleep alone when Derek has late nights, and listening to vague excuses because the real reasons are ones he cannot know. Derek hates to disappoint him, tonight as ever, but he needs to be available for the other spy to pass him the information, not whirling about on the dance floor. The revolution must come first, until Lady Katherine can be imprisoned for her crimes.

    Derek strives to believe that the day will come soon.
