    Summary

    "Once upon a time,” Stiles began, and Thomas sighed happily, resting his cheek in the hollow of Stiles’ shoulder. “There was a gangly, clumsy, freckle-faced young boy, and a beautiful, majestic wolf —”

    “You mean, there was a beautiful, brilliant, amber-eyed boy, and a half-starved, mangy-looking wolf,” a voice interrupted. “It looks like I made it just in time, huh?” Derek said with a conspiratorial smirk at Thomas. “Gotta make sure you tell it right.”

    “Yeah, Daddy!” Thomas parroted. “Tell it right!”

    “Okay, okay,” Stiles sighed, settling his arm across Thomas with his hand resting on his husband’s waist, thumb drawing an absent-minded little circle. “Once upon a time, there was a probably-going-to-grow-into-his-looks-just-fine young boy, and a very lonely wolf…”

    Summary

    Stiles stared into eyes that were just a little lighter than even the day before, looking almost beta-gold in the harsh lighting. His nose was just a little less uptilted, the moles on his face not quite where they used to be. The scar on the bottom of his chin from when he fell off the swings in third grade was just gone. He seemed a little bit taller, his shoulders a little bit wider.

    With trembling fingers Stiles folded his left ear forward, craning his neck. A wheezing breath escaped him, his legs suddenly feeling weak with relief.

    The mark of the Oni was still there, the one that meant self.

    Stiles was still himself. For now.

    Your friends. Your family. Everyone who ever meant something to you. We're going to destroy all of them, Stiles. One. By. One.

    The nogitsune’s words echoed in Stiles’ head again, and he grimaced. It wasn’t just that the nogitsune had threatened everyone Stiles loved.

    It was that he had said we.

    Summary

    “Kira doesn't care a wick if you can afford her dresses and bonnets, I'm well aware. It doesn't change the fact that I have to look after her best interests. I'd like her to be with an Alpha that puts her above all else even if he cannot afford her every luxury.”

    Scott looks surprised. “I know you do not know me, sir, but I can promise you that that is my only wish. I—I love Kira quite dearly, and all I want is to provide for her, make her happy.”

    “So you will marry off your brother,” Derek says, taking a sip from his drink.

    -0-

    In which Kira is Derek's ward, Stiles is Scott's brother, and omega heat cycles are good for everyone.

    Summary

    Stiles accidentally declares himself Derek's mate after a mixup at a supernatural conference. Whoops.

     

    Across the room, Stiles can see the energy shift as Derek walks in. He’s all broad shoulders and soft, gentle smile, looking at ease in a blue v-necked sweater over a crisp collared shirt and dress slacks. He looks a bit nervous, but seems to relax after saying hello to a few people.

    An elderly lady is pinching his cheeks. Heh. He’s adorable. Stiles loves little moments like these, when he gets to see Derek unguarded, he loves—

    Stiles immediately pushes the thought to the back of his mind. He can’t afford to wallow in his feelings, not this weekend.
