    Summary

    Stiles spends a year before college working at the all-night coffee shop in town. It's nice and quiet, until one dark and brooding Derek starts coming in every morning, ordering coffee so strong that it should not be fit for human consumption. Ever. Stiles tries not to be affected by the mystery guy, but it's not like anything else happens around here, so really, what did you expect? And when he's already in too deep, he realises he might even be in way over his head...

    Summary

    In a moment of crunching metal on metal, Derek went right back to how he was the day he met Stiles.

    Before their relationship.
    Before Stiles listened to him rant about Kate.
    Before Stiles offered a safe place to relax while they were on the road.
    Before Stiles encouraged him to think about what he wanted in his future, and supported his dreams no matter how simple or lavish.
    Before Stiles showed him how special he was mentally, physically, and emotionally.
    Before Stiles showed him what it was like to be loved.

    Derek went back to feeling like a failure, like he couldn’t make anyone happy unless he gave up his own comfort and catered to those around him.
    Derek went back to not caring what tomorrow brought, he just wanted everyone to be okay, convinced he only needed those around him to be happy, for him to be happy.
    Derek went back to trying to understand why he couldn’t make Kate happy.
    Derek went back to feeling like he wasn’t loved.

    Stiles knows that Derek essentially started on a new path after the accident, and in turn began a new life.

    Without Stiles.

    But...

    Summary

    Derek goes into rut in the early winter, and he can't stand being near Stiles.
    Stiles comes over to make sure Derek isn't dead. Good job, Scott.

    *

    “Stiles… You have to leave. Please--just go away.”
    “It's okay, buddy… We're gonna get through this.” He touches Derek's chest with his own, fingers brushing Derek's neck. “I'm here.”

    Summary

    Derek's just over the city line when he sees a sign for an independent drive-thru place, Full Spectrum Brew. There are three cars in line when he turns in, which annoys him but gives him hope. Not that he really trusts the people of Beacon Hills to have much taste when it comes to coffee (god, he is a snob), but the shop’s popularity does seem to bode well. The line of cars moves way more slowly than he’d like, each customer in front of him seeming to take way too long to order, and then lingering when they get their coffee. He’s irritable from lack of sleep and an even more detrimental lack of caffeine, anxious to get out of the car. Finally it’s his turn and he slowly rolls up to the window, turning the radio down.

    For a second, he thinks he must have fallen asleep while he was waiting, because what he sees when he looks in the window surely must be a dream.

    Stunning brown eyes like glowing honey and sweet little nose, slightly upturned; a shapely pink mouth, bottom-lip pierced by a thin black hoop that he's worrying with the tip of his tongue as he smiles a gorgeous hello.

    He's the most beautiful man Derek's ever seen.

    And he’s shirtless.
