  1. Summary

    She’s lived a long life, a very long life. Didn’t matter which way you cut it. In that time she was bound to bump into a familiar face or two. Perhaps even a man who made a habit of wearing multiple faces over the course of time. The appearance didn't matter she'd (nearly) always recognize him, even if he didn't always recognize her.

  2. Summary

    She had no idea just how old she was exactly. Nobody put much thought into the passage of time and marking down dates back then. There was no record of her birth. There were very few records that managed to survive that could contain records of her early years. The oldest manuscript that could pertain to her was death notice in a family's bible from Aberdeen.
    A date of death: 5 of June 1115
    She picked that as her birthday (not entirely inaccurate – since she had returned to life shortly after dying) and figured her age based on that. The death record stated she had died in childbirth at nineteen but she had no way of knowing just how long she’d been nineteen exactly. Her memory of her youth was just as spottily reliable as the surviving records from the mid-12th century.
    If she had really been nineteen that would make her year of birth 1096; either way you cut it by 2015 she was (at least) 900 years old. Regardless, she believed it was rude to ask a woman her age; which would explain why she often changed it to suit her needs. When it looked like you were going to live forever – and not (noticeably) lose your good looks – then why put a number on it?

    Summary

    There's something weird about Beacon Hills that Stiles can't quite put his finger on. The way everyone in town knows his name the day he arrives. The way they insist the melancholic howling that echoes through the forest every night is just a dog. The way his dad denies getting a dog, even though Stiles comes home to find one sprawled across his bed, some big black thing whose eyes gleam red in the right light. The way that massive oak tree out in the woods vibrates under his touch, pulsing with sickly life.

    There's something weird going on in this town, and Stiles is determined to get to the bottom of it.
