    Summary

    Stiles had only turned on the TV for background noise while he tried to finish up his thesis proposal before the next day’s meeting with his advisor, that was all. It was a nature documentary. About butterflies, no less. Bland, soothing, not at all distracting, just enough extra noise to help the rest of his overactive brain focus.

    Well, he was totally focused now, it just wasn’t on his thesis. Because now there was a man on his TV who was very distracting, talking about butterflies.

    Summary

    “He can't blame me for the fact that I live in a building full of people united in the singular effort to ogle Hot Fireman as often as humanly possible."

    Laura laughs, loud and echoing in the empty restaurant.

    "Hot firemen can make a girl do crazy things," she agrees, nodding towards her brother's name on the menu. "Derek won't let me date anyone from his company, but that doesn't mean I can't appreciate the eye candy."

    "Send them my way," Stiles suggests, finally loading up a forkful of pie. "Apparently I'm incompetent enough that I need to be babysat at all times, because it would be cheaper than dispatching a truck every time I try to use a kitchen appliance."

    Summary

    Derek picks up another glass of champagne, and that’s when he sees him. A man stands at the edge of the room, chewing his lip and staring at the dance floor longingly.
     
    Every person walks past him. Derek must have done it a hundred times this evening.
    --
    Derek is not one for dancing, but at a ball he meets Stiles, an orphan, and he becomes quickly attached. He does not care what other people think about Stiles' wealth and status, but it's a lot harder for Stiles to ignore the comments that have haunted him his whole life.

    It's even harder to convince Stiles that Derek's feelings are genuine.

    Summary

    Derek stopped listening to him, brain going a mile a minute.

     

    Derek, it’s fucking happening!
    Derek, please!

     

    He would recognize that fucking voice anywhere.

    Two years. Two fucking years had passed, and now this little shit was standing in front of him, speaking his name, and grinning like an idiot.

    “It’s you,” Derek said, earning him a confused look from Stiles. “The phone call. Two years ago. It was you.”

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Post-Nogitsune, alternate meeting, college AU featuring many of my favorite things that I 100% think you should read immediately. Then, after you calm down from the wild ride that is this fic, read it again. It’s amazing and I love it.

    Summary

    Pulling open his apartment door, he let out an involuntary shout when something was quite literally thrust into his chest hard enough to have him almost tip backwards. He managed to right himself while keeping hold of what had been shoved at him and looked up in time to see his neighbour striding back towards his apartment.

    “You’re going to fucking kill yourself.”

    His door slammed.

    Stiles blinked at the other man’s door, utterly confused, and looked down at what he was holding.

    It was a plastic bag, full of what felt like tupperware, which made no sense to Stiles because when had his neighbour broken into his house to steal his tupperware?

    In which Derek is shy, Stiles is adorably oblivious in just the right ways, and they’re perfect all over my city.
