“Why does your mom think I’m an alcoholic?”
There’s a long beat of silence over the line, then Foggy says, “Oh. She was dumping your scotch into the plant. That whole scene makes a lot more sense now.” Something happens just beyond the range of what the speakers can pick up, and Matt hears Foggy stumble a little. “Son of a—hold on.” His voice goes muffled and distant, like he’s holding the phone against his chest. “Erica, come pick up your Legos!”
Little feet stomp against the floor on Foggy’s end, and then Erica’s voice comes into range. “Is that Matt?” The words start out louder and recede as she crouches to grab what must be the blocks Foggy stepped on.
“Yeah, babe,” says Foggy, distracted. “Don’t leave them in the kitchen again, okay?” She must nod, because when Foggy speaks again his voice comes clear into the speaker. “Sorry,” he tells Matt. He doesn’t really sound it.
Foggy’s sister dies on a Thursday. Juggling his new job and his young niece and his grief, Foggy’s struggling to keep his world from spinning apart under his feet. Matt wants to help, but they don’t talk anymore.

- Part 1 of Girl in the War
Derek Hale went to sleep alone in his shabby New York walk-up to the tune of bedsprings and shattered glass—a harsh lullaby from the people fighting below him and fucking up above. He wakes up flat on his back in the charred skeleton of his family’s burnt-out house with a lean man standing over him, face streaked with ash and dried blood, the nose of his rifle trained firmly between Derek’s eyes.
In which Derek’s alternate universe self is a dead werewolf, his alternate universe husband is a magical widower, their alternate universe daughter is a magically engineered miracle, the year is 2027, and everything in said alternate universe wants them dead. After they fall under attack, Derek is left alone in the New York of his home universe with a four-year-old half-werewolf and not a clue what to do with her.
He doesn’t even think to wonder what might have followed them back.
"Hey, Der Bear," Laura says, flopping down at the foot of his bed. "I hear you're the resident scarlet letter of Beacon Hills High."
Everyone thinks Derek is Bad News, a hot mess, and maybe it's true. But he's also a dork who's watched Inception twelve times and buys all his favorite albums in vinyl and actually read Frankenstein while everyone else was busy Spark Noting it five minutes before the comprehension quiz. Derek doesn't want to hurt Stiles, doesn't want to leave him crying alone on the bleachers after Prom like all the Bad News boys in the movies, but Derek doesn't know how to be anything else.
[In which Derek and Stiles have sex through the transitive property.]
