    Summary

    Three hundred years ago, the world ended not with a bang or a whimper, but with magic.

    Since then, magic has been outlawed, and the world has clawed its way back to some kind of stability, with people and shifters alike divided between living within the walled safety of the Havens, or the small, less protected outposts dotting the frontier.

    Derek Hale and his sisters, Laura and Cora, are the proprietors of Hale's Circus of Magic, Monsters, and Mystical Wonders, known colloquially as the Circus at the End of the World. They and their ragtag pack ride the rails between the outposts and the Havens, performing for those who can pay (and some who can't). Their circus is a small haven in and of itself, a place of safety for those who have nowhere else to go.

    It's a quiet life...until Stiles Stilinski joins the crew.

    The circus has something Stiles needs—a ticket into the Haven of Santa Francesca. His father has been abducted, and Stiles is determined to get him back no matter what he has to do.

    But Stiles has another secret, one that puts him and every member of the circus in danger. And if he's not careful, it could get them all killed.

    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

    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.

    Summary

    Look, Stiles knows he’s not really part of the pack, but really? He wishes the others aside from Scott and Allison would stay a little more up to date on what’s going on his life beyond how it affects them.

    Summary

    Double-oh agents are a piece of work; Stiles knew that before he became MI6's new quartermaster. It's cool, he survived Lydia in college, he can deal with stubborn, reckless, trigger-happy operatives. Derek Hale, though, is definitely trying to live up to his predecessor's legacy and make Stiles' life more difficult.

     

    AKA the one where Derek is 007 and Stiles is Q and they bitch and angst their way to a Happy Ending.

    "…You think your grandmother would buy you a stripper?"

     

    In which "the nice young man next door who shovels snow for me" turns out to not be an acne-ridden middle schooler, Mrs Stilinski's grandson turns out to not be a ten year old goofy looking kid anymore, and everyone realises they shouldn't doubt ever doubt Grandma Stilinski's matchmaking skills.

    Summary

    “You never graduated,” Stiles says, just to say it. To test it out in the open air. That's... huh.

    --

    Stiles spends his senior year battling troll-gremlins, taking on an unexpected tutoring job, and definitely not falling for a certain sourwolf (even though everyone else seems to think he is).

    Summary

    Everybody gets a name, inscribed in a color over the left side of their chest. It seems like a good system, guaranteeing that there will be someone who loves you, who you will get to love in return for years to come. The only problem is that that's not actually how it always works out.

    This is not the behavior Stiles was expecting from a werewolf he’s been dream invading. To be honest, Stiles expected more blood, bruises and begging. He was not expecting creepy Derek to go to sleep next to him.

    Summary

    Stiles loves his job. Mostly. Like, maybe sixty-seven percent loves. For right out of college that's pretty good, right? And among people working in the Chicago O’Hare airport he's positive he's in the 99th percentile of job enjoyment.

    When all is said and done, he really does love putting the right book into the right hands. Especially when those hands are as attractive as the ones attached to Hot Businessman Derek Hale.

    Inspired by the fact that there really is a famous indie bookstore inside an airport ! And also that I have too many opinions about books. Recs are linked! (Very mild spoilers for Remains of the Day by Kazuo Ishiguro and Broken Harbor by Tana French)

    Summary

    In which Stiles ships Derek/nice things almost as hard as I do

    Or

    Stiles definitely starts off thinking it’s fucking hilarious that Derek-sourwolf-Hale does crosswords and cares about scuffs on his furniture.

    But at a certain point, and he can’t pinpoint exactly when, “fully functional adult couple” somehow becomes a massive fetish of his. Derek in sweats and bare feet, nudging his glasses up his nose while he does the Sunday crossword? Unff. Derek filling out forms to get some renovations on his property approved? Oh God, yes. Derek putting away groceries and bitching that the corner store was out of the right type of Greek yogurt? Take me now, Stiles thinks, worrying at his lower lip with his teeth.

    This can’t be normal.

    *Everything* that standinginanicedress writes is a worthwhile read.
    Ok, so I feel like I always say "I've read this 5 thousand times and it's just as good as the first time" when I'm bookmarking but it's true every time, because that's what a good fic is to me, and it's true here and remains true for all of standinginanicedress's works.

    Summary

    Stiles is in college and has heard a lot of things about Derek Hale, without actually meeting him. Well, that's until he does of course, and Derek seems to be everything Stiles assumed he was, and yet not at all.

    Written for the prompt: "Male puppies let female puppies “win” during play fights so they can get to know them."

    Summary

    Stiles finds himself on the doorstep to his home in Beacon Hills, not remembering how he got here or why he’s barefoot. As it turns out, he was abducted a couple of weeks earlier from a college party and bears the same marks on his body as victims of a serial killer his dad just can’t seem to get a hold of. So there he is, with no memories of what happened, the last couple of weeks like a blank line in his mind and knowing all too well that he’s the best shot they have at catching this guy. As a key witness and in acute, assumed danger, he finds himself under surveillance 24/7 and more often than not, his dad’s best Deputy: Derek Hale, is sitting at his kitchen table.

    And with that Stiles' slightly-creepy-still-mostly-just-amusing afternoon (and night) came to a dramatic, screeching halt. Because no absolutely not NO was Stiles allowed to be attracted to a stupid, pixelated avatar that was slightly influenced by Derek Hale's character. No.
