    Summary

    The months following Allison's death have passed Stiles by in a haze of monotony. He sleepwalks through days that seem to lose their color, an unwilling passenger in a body he no longer trusts. Eventually, he thinks, he'll just fade away. He isn't sure anyone would notice. Then, during a spur of the moment grocery run, he stumbles upon Derek Hale attempting to console a lost child, and for the first time in recent memory the world doesn't seem so awful.
    He's not sure what he'd been expecting when he eventually convinces Derek to move into the Stilinski's spare bedroom, but a newfound passion for weeding and topsoil certainly isn't it.

    Summary

    This is what most of his days look like, after:
    Stiles wakes up. He counts his fingers, tries to catch his breath as he waits for his heartbeat to slow down and the sweat on his skin to cool. He showers. Some mornings he eats with his dad; some mornings Scott comes over for breakfast. Some days he goes to school and some days he doesn’t.

    Summary

    The first Sebastian hears of it, he's approached by an extremely competent-looking blonde woman in a sharp dark suit. CIA, what the fuck, and Seb just stares at her.

    “Come on,” he says. “Okay, we kind of look similar, I guess I'm the celebrity look-alike you'd get if you stuck our faces through one of those dumb apps—or he is, maybe, shit, he's probably still more famous than I am. But he died in, like, 1945, right? Why are you asking me about this now?”

    Maybe in the end it's his absolute confusion which convinces them; maybe it's just the fact that he's obviously a total idiot, couldn't possibly have any connection to this guy called the Winter Soldier beyond the fact that they both have high cheekbones, grey eyes and a sharp jawline and a too-pretty mouth. Sorry for the inconvenience, she tells him, thank you for your time, and that evening Sebastian stares at his face in the mirror, wonders what he'd look like if he grew his hair long and got a little stubble.

    Summary

    He's done the whole teenager thing – the sloppy makeouts, messy handjobs in the back of a car – but fumbling fingers and someone who comes ten seconds after Keith gets his hands on them isn't what he wants.

    Guys his age don't know how to treat him, so Keith finds Shiro in a bar.

    Summary

    “My true love will have hair the color of yellow apples,” and Jack Zimmermann will take a bite from the forbidden fruit, juice running down his chin. “My true love will be exactly five feet and six-and-a-half inches tall,” and he will chew a leaf from a tree of that same height. “My true love will be as sweet as sugar and sharp as lemon,” and he will drink half a glass of Great-Aunt Cathy’s lemonade, waiting until the last dregs of sugar hit his tongue. “And if a single one of these things is not to be, then let it be known—my true love shall not be he.”

    (He knows in his bones that this spell won’t ever come true. After all, his true love isn't real, and if he’s not real, then the curse can’t take him. That’s the whole point.)

    --

    Or, a Practical Magic AU. Wherein Jack Zimmermann must deal with family curses, hockey legacies, accidental manslaughter, Kent Parson’s obstinate death wish, and a snarky Southern kitchen warlock who won’t mind his own damn business.
