    Summary

    Like, if you think about it, Derek’s not even trying to be subtle.

    About the dinner, obviously, there’s no way in hell that Derek would break out the good dishes for a regular Friday night. Some big talk or proposal is obvious the minute Stiles walks in the door.

    But also about his thing with wolves.

    Summary

    “Oh,” Stiles said, his voice coming out low and breathy, “fuck me.”

    “I don’t think that’s on the syllabus, but we can check to see if there’s a spot open in any of his classes,” Scott said, grinning.

    “This isn’t an actual professor, though,” Stiles insisted, unable to resist brushing his thumb over the sharp line of the man’s bearded jaw. He was laughing at something off-camera, the shot taken in three-quarters view, his coat collar casually rumpled and opened to reveal a sliver of a simple grey t-shirt. The whole thing was deliberately calculated to lend him a more accessible feel, and god help him, Stiles was falling for it.

    When Stiles signed up for Dr. Hale’s intro to history class, he had two goals: knock out the credits his advisor was bugging him to complete before he graduated, and spend a few hours a week daydreaming about his sexy professor’s salt and pepper beard.

    Derek, a few months away from turning forty and not sure when his life had started feeling so damn lonely, had never encountered someone like Stiles before. Bright-eyed, sharp-tongued, determined to throw Derek’s carefully cultivated world into disarray…and absolutely the last person Derek should be falling in love with.

    Summary

    “He’s just going to sing karaoke,” Erica said. “His voice can’t possibly be that bad. Or if it is, that’s part of the fun.”

    Stiles exhaled sharply through his nose. “He’s really fucking drunk, which means he’s going to sing Wonderwall.” He looked pointedly around the table, but other than a slight furrow on Isaac’s forehead, everyone’s faces remained blank. “To Allison?“

    “Oh,” Erica said, her eyes finally tracking to the corner of the room where Allison and her date had settled at a table only a few minutes earlier. Right about the time Scott had drained his drink, then Isaac’s, then swayed to his feet and announced he was next up to sing.

    --

    In which Stiles tries (and fails) to save his best friend from a horrific emotional disaster, and Derek has an unexpected solution to the problem.

    Summary

    When Derek left Beacon Hills, finally ripping the tether free and remembering how to breathe, how to live again, it was Stiles who came after him. Stiles, who showed up at his door with blazing eyes, looking like he wanted to punch him in the face, but wrapping his arms around him instead, making him grunt in surprise at the raw strength of his embrace.

    “You asshole,” Stiles said, slapping him heartily on the back as he extricated himself, his voice rough under his bright smile. “You couldn’t have made yourself harder to find, could you?”

    Summary

    When Derek leaves Beacon Hills for the second time in as many years, Stiles kind of gets it. Derek’s been through far more shit than anyone Stiles knows -- he figures Derek will take some time to lick his wounds, screw his head back on straight, and be back by the time the next supernatural threat descends on them. Because Derek always comes back. It’s what he does. So when he sees the “For Sale” sign on the loft nearly two months later without a single word from Derek, Stiles is pissed.
