    Summary

      "If you're watching this, you're probably some kind of sentient life form responding to my distress call – well, it's not really an official distress call because, well, the hardware for that is kind of crushed, but I'm definitely in distress, so that should probably count for something."

      The young man on the screen sighs and rubs his face, jerking his hand away with a hiss. He's bleeding, Derek realises: there's a gash across his brow and the knuckles of both hands are bruised and bloody, and that's only what he can make out between the cracks in the glass and the frame of the camera.

    Second reading of this one. Fantastic, mysterious and exciting storyline? Check. Perfect characterizations? Check. Slow burn? Check. WEREWOLVES IN SPAAAAACE...... seriously though, this was my second time reading this and it was so good and worth it. The slow build of them getting to know each other is very enjoyable. Plus who doesn't love a space mystery? Very well written excluding how you get a little lost for a second during the climax but the author clears it up pretty well by the end. Great read!

    Summary

    Stiles' sophomore year starts something like this:
    3 FourLokos
    + 1 peer-pressuring cat
    - 1 best bro to end all best bros
    = 1 Craigslist ad headline that reads "str8 dude - m4m - strictly platonic".
    Derek is the fool who replies.

    Summary

    Stiles doesn’t buy the whole magical, transcendent soulmate reveal story, snickers at all those movies where the couple touches each others marks for the first time, eyes glimmering over in emotion when they feel the bond surge through their bodies (who comes up with this stuff?), shakes his head at all those dreamy-eyed people willing to shell out money to track down their other half.
    Stiles is just really ambivalent about the whole thing. He meets his other half in his lifetime? Cool. If not? It’s just fine; he’s happy where he is.
    At least that’s what he keeps telling himself.

    You know how this story ends, but how does it begin?

    I know it's counterintuitive because this is part of a series, and it's the second one, but you need to READ THIS FIRST. The first one is more of a blurb and it pretty much ruins the ending of the second one so don't read it first. If you read them out of order this is a great story. I've been reading a lot of soulmate AUs lately and sometimes they can be a little trite. This one is great though. I really found the other relationships in the book interesting. The Dynamics that arose from different soulmate combinations. I'm going to check and see if this author ever explored the relationship between Isaac Allison and Scott further. But other than that it's just a great little tale of Stiles and Derek falling in Love.

    It's perfectly understandable. Even Derek wouldn't want to be Derek's soulmate.

    This story is so highly rated that I read it a long time ago when I was first making my way through the top kudos sterek stories of all time. So I had forgotten about it. I did recognize it after I begin reading because it's memorable. But I certainly decided to go ahead and read it all the way through again and I do not have any regrets. There's a reason this one has so many kudos. It is perfection. It's a slight deviation starting when they met in the woods with a soul mates bent to it. It's angsty and tragic with so much pining and so much slow build. It's beautiful and authentic. All the characterization is are perfect. You never get bored you never get lost. The love that Derek feels, straight from the beginning, is so intense and beautiful. But it definitely only grows with time as any true love should. I cannot State enough how well written the dialogue is. There's not a lot of exciting plot but you don't miss it for a single second. the plot is all in their lives at their growing love and thier healthy pack. If you want to walk away with some warm fuzzies, read this. The scene at the end where they're declaring their love is one of the best ever written.

    It's been DAYS since I found anything worth reading. I was getting desperate. And then I found this TREASURE. This is fantastic and original. I'm normally turned off by Stiles reality jumping into a dimension where he's with Derek because of all of the potential for awkward embarrassing situations to arise while Stiles figures out that he's not in his world and learns how to navigate the new reality. But the author circumnavigates that by removing Stiles control of his body in the other reality. So Stiles is just a passenger and an observer. That element was so clever and such a good problem solver for my usual dispute against this genre. And, disregarding that element entirely, this would still have been a wonderful story. Even if I'd had to deal with that irritation. Stiles falling in love felt a little quick, the author made no references to Stiles having any feelings before the events of the story so that's why it felt a little rushed. Maybe if he'd had some realization that he's been having feelings all along and he had just been oblivious up until current events. Or if we'd spent a little more time building his and Derek's current friendship in the story. That's really like the only flaw. Derek's characterization is perfect. Stiles' is also. Their reality is dark and somewhat depressing just like it really kind of is. Their relationship is realistic and the sex scene is hot. The dialogue is on point. Just a really enjoyable post Canon story.
