    Summary

    "The colloquial name is bloodstone," says the man from StrexCorp's Acquisitions division. "Heard of them?"

    Carlos shakes his head. "No, but I'm not a minerologist. Are you certain this wasn't intended for the geology department?"

    ~

    Carlos is a loyal company employee, who has never been to any place called Night Vale and never met anyone named Cecil…which doesn’t explain the mysterious woman appearing in his lab, or these dreams he’s started having…

    Amazing!! I read this fic a while ago and forgot to bookmark it-- not gonna miss the chance again! Slow build-up but 100% worth the wait-- BAMFCarlos for all your scientific curiosities like 'How many under-the-counter soldier pills do I need to smuggle in order to barter for a portable radio at the local bar?' or even 'Are fruit-like substances really the answer to making the untouchable hallucinations that may or may not show up around bloodstones solid??'. If you've stumbled over this bookmark-- just start reading. Please go ahead, Carlos is depending on you!!

    Truly the best crossover series I've ever read if not the best series period. You could read this over several times and still pick up small details-- a complex and yet utterly captivating story that, to be honest, could be read without prior knowledge of either The Dresden Files or Welcome to Night Vale from how complete the worldbuilding is. I read this over a period of two days because it was incredibly hard to put this story down which given how much work was put into each chapter (not to mention the overall WORDCOUNT of the series) is definitely telling of just how good this series is. If anyone has stumbled upon this, don't hesitate. Read Love is All You Need to Destroy Your Enemies immediately-- you won't regret it!

    Summary

    AU. Carlos and his team are studying the most scientifically interesting patch of ocean along the U.S. coastline. In the process, a certain member of the ocean community (with a beautiful, soothing Voice) starts to take an interest in him too.

    Featuring fairytale romance, the music of the sea, chemistry of all kinds, and, well, puns. Lots and lots of puns.

    Summary

    Stiles appears alone at the doors of the emergency room the morning after the full moon, covered in blood with a deep slash torn across his left side. He's suffering from hypovolemic shock and barely conscious and he won't tell anyone what happened—not his hospital appointed psychiatrist, not his father. Not even his pack.

    The list of suspects is disconcertedly short. There were only seven others in the woods with Stiles that night: Derek, Scott, Boyd, Erica, Isaac, Jackson and Allison. And none of them remember the night in quite the same way.

    One of the best sterek fics I've read. 10/10 would read again and again!

    Summary

    Wherein an ill-advised floral arrangement leads to a whole new definition of obliviousness, accidental mate-bonds, and far more sex and tropes than one fic really needs.

    or

    Five times Derek and Stiles didn’t notice how close they were (literally) and then a whole bunch of times when they did...

    Just wow okay! Seriously one of the best sterek fics I've ever read like hot and heavy with a side of comedy in the beginning and perfectly finished with only a sprinkle of angst over a lovely romantic if beautifully corny end. Honestly I might go check if there are other works by this author right after this.
