    Summary

    “Is that your way of asking me to cook for you sometime?” Alec says. “'Cause I will.”
    The moment the words escape his mouth, Alec finds himself slightly panicking. Because he does not talk like that, ever―in a way that might even be considered flirting―and he still doesn’t understand what it is about Magnus that brings stuff like that out of him. More importantly, he has a boyfriend.
    Magnus, however, just looks mildly surprised as their eyes meet.
    “My, my. Master chef, good family name, and charming?” Magnus tilts his head ever so slightly. “Careful, Mr. Lightwood,” he says in a low, teasing voice, mouth curving up in a smile. “You’re gonna make me swoon.”
    ---

    One night, Magnus spots a handsome stranger in the elevator of his apartment building – which wouldn’t be a big deal if said stranger didn’t turn out to be dating Magnus’s neighbor. The stranger soon becomes Alec, and their paths end up crossing more than once. A tentative friendship develops as they slowly get to know each other, and they both find that it’s effortless in a way neither of them has ever known. It's only when other kinds of feelings start getting involved that things become a bit more complicated.

    Summary

    “We could do Despacito.”

    Derek makes a face, and Stiles silently crosses the song off the list.

    “Hit Me Baby One More Time?”

    Derek rolls his eyes. “I swear to god, Stiles…”

    Stiles crosses it off as well, then perks up. “Ooh! I know! What about that one song from Tangled, where they’re sitting in the boat in the lake, and all those lanterns are floating around them?”

    “I’m not figure skating to Disney in the Olympics, Stiles.”

    Summary

    In which Derek gets a new roommate whose best friend takes to practically living on their couch pretty quickly.
    Which wouldn't be a problem except for the fact that said best friend is the same guy who's been holding Derek's table at the library hostage for the better part of a month.
    And, oh yeah, there's also this thing where Derek might maybe be the tiniest bit in love with him.
    Easy peasy.
