    Summary

    Stiles had only turned on the TV for background noise while he tried to finish up his thesis proposal before the next day’s meeting with his advisor, that was all. It was a nature documentary. About butterflies, no less. Bland, soothing, not at all distracting, just enough extra noise to help the rest of his overactive brain focus.

    Well, he was totally focused now, it just wasn’t on his thesis. Because now there was a man on his TV who was very distracting, talking about butterflies.

    Summary

    Stiles accidentally declares himself Derek's mate after a mixup at a supernatural conference. Whoops.

     

    Across the room, Stiles can see the energy shift as Derek walks in. He’s all broad shoulders and soft, gentle smile, looking at ease in a blue v-necked sweater over a crisp collared shirt and dress slacks. He looks a bit nervous, but seems to relax after saying hello to a few people.

    An elderly lady is pinching his cheeks. Heh. He’s adorable. Stiles loves little moments like these, when he gets to see Derek unguarded, he loves—

    Stiles immediately pushes the thought to the back of his mind. He can’t afford to wallow in his feelings, not this weekend.

    Summary

    Coach Derek is kind of scary, he’s standing totally still with his arms crossed over his chest, which just makes his Dad’s constant flailing look even worse.

    “They’re standing awfully close,” the girl comments.

    They’re practically nose to nose, and if they weren’t arguing Evan would think they were about to kiss. He feels his ears heat up with embarrassment and wishes again for his Dad to just give up already.

    Summary

    Derek hates to admit it, but he can always tell which kid is going to be a problem on the first day of school. He’s been teaching kindergarten at St. Bernard’s Elementary for five years now and knows it’s just as much about learning to play nicely with others as learning the alphabet and basic arithmetic. Some children are quiet, shy, or lacking in basic social skills but others…

    There’s always one that drives Derek up a wall, and this year, it’s Erica Prudence Reyes II.
