    Summary

    The diner AU. Even and Yousef open a 1950s American-style restaurant together - Even is the creative genius in the kitchen, Yousef keeps the trains running on time, and Isak, Chris B, and Magnus are all along for the ride. Falling in love over food while Elvis serenades from the jukebox. Welcome to the Throwback Diner.

    ---

     

    The next couple of minutes are a complete blur of Yousef wishing Isak luck under his breath, then loudly saying goodbye to Even and hurrying out the door, and Even leading Isak to one of the only booths not covered with elements of the remodel, the two of them settling into their seats, Even asking him again if he’d like anything, and Isak, partly because he wants to delay things and partly because his throat now feels like fucking sandpaper, asking for some water. It’s not until he’s completely alone for a moment that he’s able to have a quick, stern talk with himself about calming down and just getting through this. If he can keep his cool for just a few minutes, do his best to ignore Even’s jawline and incredible eyes and, yeah, pretty much everything else about him, he might just come out of this with a job.

    Summary

    There was a gift.


    There was a curse. 

    There is a power in the house of Hale, given to the firstborn son of every generation - the ability to turn everything he touches to gold. Though the original intent of the power was thought of as a gift, in reality, it is a dreaded curse that causes the bearer a life of fear, isolation, and danger.

    Thus, Prince Derek is born.

    [Excerpt from Chapter 22]

    He didn’t think much of his hands, or any part of his body, really - but Stiles gaze had lingered enough to make Derek wonder what Stiles’ thought. Now, Stiles honey eyes were fixated on Derek’s hands, running over them like they were something precious rather than tools of death.

    “Hmm.”

    “What.”

    “Nothing, I just - I thought they wouldn’t look like normal hands.”

    “Why.”

    “Because they’re magic,” Stiles said, looking up to meet Derek’s eyes.

    “They’re not magic, they’re cursed,” Derek said, tucking his hands back into the sheet.

    Summary

    One of Stiles' favorite things about life is Derek Hale's food blog. He never expects to meet the man in person.

    ~

    “Derek,” he says again, and the name feels very strange on his tongue. “You don’t mean Derek Hale.”

    His professor’s eyebrows reach up, eyes widening. “You read his blog?”

    "Uh. Worship. Would be a better more descriptive word. That is Derek Hale?"

    Jimmy chuckles. "Good-looking guy, huh?"

    "You mean to tell me the Food Network hasn't snatched him up to dethrone everyone else from daytime TV."

    Jimmy smiles a small private smile. "I don't think TV is his medium."

    Stiles raises an eyebrow. "Shy?"

    The man laughs heartily at that. "No, I wouldn't say that. He just has particular forms of expression, like eyebrows and chili powder."
