    Summary

    "That was stupid." He bats the kid's hands away and rearranges the items in the bag. He's mixed canned goods and dairy, does this kid even know how to efficiently pack a bag? "The TiMER is a gift." He says it automatically, because that's what his mom says. That's how he was brought up. That's what he's supposed to think.

    He used to believe it, back when he was sixteen and idealistic, before he actually got his TiMER, back when he was so sure that his soulmate would be Paige. Back when he believed in the romcoms, in his mom's books, in the elaborate advertisements for TiMERs—the ones with all the interviews with loving real life couples, with testimonials to their effectiveness and their ability to make you happy and fulfilled, with guarantees of an improved quality of life and even life expectancy. Back when he thought meeting his soulmate was an inevitability, not a slim possibility.

    Summary

    Derek walks in—Derek, Derek from last night, Derek from this morning, Derek—walks in. He walks in, sees Stiles, and freezes.

    Stiles blinks, staring, thinking maybe he's imagining things, but it's definitely Derek—he's even wearing same clothes, just with a confused scowl instead of a self-satisfied smirk. Also, a plastic pirate hook is gripped in his left hand, which is the worst non-attempt at a costume Stiles has ever seen. Ever. It's ridiculous.

    Stiles swallows roughly. "If you'd had that last night, things might have gone in a totally different direction," he says inanely, nodding at the hook.

    ...it's possible that Stiles is fixating on the hook. Because if he doesn't, then he'll have to think about the fact that the one person he would ever want to impress in this world is seeing him in probably the stupidest items of clothing he's ever let touch his body.

    Summary

    Stiles smells different.

    It wasn't obvious at first—his car, his clothes, the people closest to him, they all smell enough like his old scent that it overpowers anything new. As far as emotions go, there's the usual anxiety, stress, tension, exhaustion, guilt.

    But the base notes of his scent, the primary olfactory information anyone would use to track Stiles, are… stronger now, and not in a way that relates to being unwashed. They're sharper, more noticeable, less human and more…

    Magical.
