    Summary

    Stiles does not start his day expecting to end up tracking a bespelled chameleon named Jimmy through the rainbow explosion that is Pride. He especially does not expect to find Derek there, purple glitter in his hair and an ace of hearts on his t-shirt, but at least it explains why Derek hasn't been answering his texts.

    Summary

    Lydia didn’t know why she didn’t see it before. The signs were so clear in retrospect, all the little things that added up. How could she have been blind enough not to notice? She had only been working with Derek for ten months now, after all, and very nearly in love with him for six of them.

    Probably entirely in love, if she were to be honest with herself, which she tried to be nowadays. She had spent far too long lying to herself so that she could lie to everyone else and it had done no one any good. She didn’t want to be that person anymore.

    She didn’t want to be the kind of person that could look into Kate Argent-Hale’s face and see herself.

    Summary

    “Did you get bit?” Stiles demanded. “Or—or scratched or something? How is this—”

    “Accident,” Derek gritted out. “It was a through and through. I was just right behind it.”

    Behind the zombie getting shot at, he meant. Because he had been pushing Stiles out of its way. Usually he and all the rest of them tried to be mindful of each other’s lines of sight—even if friendly fire probably wouldn’t kill the weres, getting shot still hurt like a son of a bitch—but he had been too busy saving Stiles’ life to look out for his own.

    And now there were bullets coated in zombie blood lodged inside him.

    With his friends, Derek wonders. With Paige, he questions. With Kate, he doesn't stop it.

    With Stiles, he doesn't have to.

    Summary

    Kira pushed the button that said hold and the dial tone came back down the line. She really hoped that was supposed to happen. At least, the number in the bottom corner of the little screen on the fancy desk telephone was flashing, so she was pretty sure the call was still connected.

    The only problem was that it was flashing the number four, because that was how many calls she had put on hold in the last twenty minutes.

    Because she did not know how to get them back.

    Summary

    The stranger in question just raised an eyebrow at her. “I’m Braeden,” she said. “Just by the way. Nice to meet you.”

    Laura didn’t appreciate the implied rebuke. She wasn’t at a hole-in-the-wall bar in a futile effort to get drunk enough to forget her brother’s self-destructive spiral because she wanted to practice good manners.

    Summary

    “Good god, how do you even do this?" Laura whined. "This takes so much work. Drawing this thing hurts muscles I didn’t even know I had, and I’m a werewolf! I’ve got literal super-strength. I can lift a car over my head.”

    “Of course you can, honey,” Allison said easily. “And you can do this too, if you’re not a baby about it.”

    Laura’s mouth fell open in indignation. Allison’s eyebrows rose in an undeniable challenge and Laura narrowed her eyes in return. She did lift the bow again, though, so she figured Allison was probably winning this round so far.

    Summary

    “Cub, what story did they tell?” Laura asked with a sinking feeling that she already knew the answer. “What book did they read?”

    Cora only resisted for a minute, squirming in Laura’s arms like she wanted out but not actually taking the opening Laura gave her. Then she collapsed against Laura’s chest and, in a very small voice muffled against her collarbone, said, “Little Red Riding Hood.”

    Laura sighed. “And the Big Bad Wolf.”

    “We’re not bad,” Cora said. “We’re not.

    She sounded so stubborn, but her voice cracked and her back shuddered under Laura’s palm as she drew a shaky breath. Laura wrapped her up in her arms more securely, and this time Cora didn’t resist at all.

    Summary

    she should’ve brought him with her. he had tried to insist on coming along but it had been so obvious how much the idea of returning upset him, how much the idea of either of them returning upset him. she had sworn up and down that she would be fine, nothing was going to happen, she didn’t need any backup.

    she wishes she hadn’t been so careless. or maybe it was arrogance, she doesn’t know. all she knows is that she needs Derek back by her side. not just because alphas heal faster when they’re with their pack but because she’s scared and hurting and she doesn’t want to die alone.

    Summary

    Scott hates the way his body is reacting. He hates that his claws are pressing at his fingertips and his eyes are red-hot, no matter how hard he tries to fight against the shift. He hates that he can’t control his own mind—can’t focus, can’t block it all out, can’t calm the hell down when there’s nothing to even be afraid of anymore.

    More than anything else, he hates how easy it is for them to sense his weakness when he’s supposed to be the strong one. His pack needs him.

    Summary

    Kira doesn't know where she stands anymore. Not with her mother, not with her friends, not with Scott. She just wants to keep out of the way until everything settles down and then maybe her life will start to make sense again.

    Except it doesn't, because nothing is ever that simple, is it?

    Summary

    “Wait, does he do this all the time?” Scott asked, sounding flabbergasted and, in Jackson’s opinion, suitably impressed. “What, is he your sugar daddy or something?”

    The way Stiles glanced at Jackson then probably looked coy to Scott. It probably looked coquettish, even deferential, like Jackson was the one with the power, but that impression couldn’t have been more misleading. That half-lidded gaze pinned Jackson to his seat and made him squirm, made him want to bare his neck, offer up everything he had, and beg for whatever Stiles wanted to give him in return.

    Stiles sipped at his drink—the drink Jackson had paid for—again and slowly, teasingly, licked the foam from his top lip.

    “You could say that,” he said, a hint of a laugh in his tone.

    Scott could say that, but he wouldn’t be entirely right. Though, to be fair, he wouldn’t be entirely wrong either.

    Summary

    She had seen the question on Scott’s face sometimes, on Stiles’ and Isaac’s, just a little bit of bafflement whenever they smelled that whiff of grief on her even as she said in words that the world was better off without Kate in it. They didn’t understand how Allison could still miss her. They didn’t get it and probably never would.

    Derek, though. In a broken whisper he asked himself the same question she had asked herself every day since that night.

    “Why can’t I hate him enough?”

    Allison blinked against wetness and smiled; that hurt too. “Because you love him.”

    Summary

    Stiles was torn between pulling a muscle trying to reach that last knot again and giving it all up as a bad job and calling Scott for a shamefaced rescue when he heard the distinctive sound of his apartment’s creaky front door opening.

    Fuck, he knew he shouldn’t have given spare keys to so many people if he ever wanted to practice self-bondage without getting caught out.

    Summary

    “You know you could just ask him out, right?” Scott asked.

    Stiles stuffed the toast in his mouth and hoped he wasn’t blushing. “Why would I do that?”

    “Because you have a ginormous crush on him.”

    “I do not, shut up,” Stiles hissed as well as he could around a mouthful of toast.

    “Your pink hair says differently,” Scott sing-songed at him.

    ***

    In which Stiles is a supremely socially awkward metamorphmagus with a crush, Derek is a quietly pining werewolf, and Scott and Lydia are done with their stubbornness and stupidity.

    Summary

    Her hands had been steady during the fight. She was always steady during the critical moments, she made sure of that. It was in the after that she let herself fall apart a little bit. When the danger was past and everybody she cared about was safe, that was when she could feel all the panic and helplessness that would cripple her in the moment, only worse for being denied so long.

    Compartmentalization was a bitch like that.

    But it wasn’t time for that yet. Not until Derek was in the clear. Not until Derek had healed from all the blows he had literally thrown himself in the way of.

    Summary

    It wasn’t that he was jealous, per se. He knew that Arthur had obligations, political relations to maintain, things that were expected of him by his father. He knew that what they had together couldn’t yet be taken outside of the small spaces they shared behind closed doors, that Arthur couldn’t have swept a servant out onto the dance floor before all and sundry. He knew that Arthur loved him and that all those dances with pretty ladies meant nothing.

    But it still stung a bit that he’d barely been able to catch Arthur’s eye all night.

    Summary

    When Stiles wasn’t making wholly ridiculous faces and running his mouth ten miles a minute, he was actually sort of attractive. Jackson cursed the day that realization had come to him because it would probably end up ruining his history grade and also his life.
