    Summary

    In which Stiles ships Derek/nice things almost as hard as I do

    Or

    Stiles definitely starts off thinking it’s fucking hilarious that Derek-sourwolf-Hale does crosswords and cares about scuffs on his furniture.

    But at a certain point, and he can’t pinpoint exactly when, “fully functional adult couple” somehow becomes a massive fetish of his. Derek in sweats and bare feet, nudging his glasses up his nose while he does the Sunday crossword? Unff. Derek filling out forms to get some renovations on his property approved? Oh God, yes. Derek putting away groceries and bitching that the corner store was out of the right type of Greek yogurt? Take me now, Stiles thinks, worrying at his lower lip with his teeth.

    This can’t be normal.

    Summary

    Derek has a new neighbor who won't stop looking.

    Excerpt:

    “You’re blind,” Derek said flatly, the anger draining from him so suddenly he felt almost woozy. His vision cleared, his claws sliding back into blunt fingernails.

    “Thanks for the memo, genius,” the kid said acidly. “I can still fucking defend myself, so don’t take another damn step.”

    “Fuck, I...I’m sorry,” Derek stuttered.

    “What?!” The kid’s brow crinkled. “I mean — what?! You’re fucking sorry!?” His lips thinned into a harsh line. “What, is this some kinda Hallmark movie where you’re discovering the error of your ways because you don’t want to rob a blind person?! That’s fucking condescending, man. I’ll have you know that —”

    “Just, wait.” Derek interrupted what was apparently the start of a convincing argument as to why he should rob the kid after all, feeling his head start to spin. “This is — it’s a misunderstanding. I’m — I’m not robbing you. You’re — you’re safe, okay? I’m taking three steps back. Just — just let me explain.”

    “Explain why you came busting into my apartment? Yeah, go right ahead, man, I can’t wait to hear this epic tale.”

    Summary

    The only person Eustace will ever meet who will have the power to recognize him for what he is will be Lucy. Lucy, named empress of a hundred worlds, named goddess of a thousand more, will be the only one capable of looking beyond this plane and into what other realms have to give.

    If she looks at Eustace just right, she'll be able to see sharp, dripping fangs and a flaming maw and claws on every limb and shining wings-

    But she doesn't. Her ability to travel worlds happens months after Eustace has been UnDragoned, and she never looks closely enough, never shifts her gaze in the right way. She won't be paying attention, and his not-quite-natural appearance will skate by, and thus he won't know just how beyond he is.

    Eustace will think himself human, only feeling the remnants of old magic clinging to his skin, but he will be so much more than that. His body takes a humanoid shape but human is the absolute furthest from the truth that Eustace can get.

    (Eustace is UnDragoned, but he becomes something far more and far beyond human.)

    Summary

    (It all comes back to a boy and his wars. It all comes back to him sitting on a throne, staring at a crown, knowing that his world may crumble into pieces with one wrong touch. It all comes back to him refusing to accept his brother’s cowardice, his sister’s recklessness, his sister’s fallibility, only seeing their strengths rather than their flaws.)

    This is the Story of the Pevensies-

    Susan the Gentle, ruler of a kingdom of her own making;

    Abraham Miller, teacher and lover;

    Lucy the Valiant, goddess in a thousand worlds;

    Edmund the Just, the Once and Future King;

    Claudia Thomas, the Impossible MP;

    Peter the Magnificent, High King turned teacher;

    Anna-Mae Brown, doctor above all else;

    Caspian the Seafarer, one of the Warrior Kings;

    Eustace Clarence Scrubb, Dragon-Kin;

    Dean Edmund Thomas, Professor and brother.

    (In the end, it all comes back to that boy, staring at a lantern, staring at a witch, staring at a tree, and deciding to step back and turn around.

    It all comes back to a single family, and the way their all-too-human want for their own happiness shapes entire worlds.)
