Stiles leaves with the alphas.
A story about people, places, things, and alpha twins.
He chewed his lower lip and Derek thought he was done but, then, almost like an afterthought, “Bad news means decisions.”
“What are you talking about?”
Stiles wasn’t looking at him anymore. He was staring down at his sneakers, out of style and fraying in places, falling apart in slow motion. He watched the hill of his toes push up the canvas.

Stiles doesn’t buy the whole magical, transcendent soulmate reveal story, snickers at all those movies where the couple touches each others marks for the first time, eyes glimmering over in emotion when they feel the bond surge through their bodies (who comes up with this stuff?), shakes his head at all those dreamy-eyed people willing to shell out money to track down their other half.
Stiles is just really ambivalent about the whole thing. He meets his other half in his lifetime? Cool. If not? It’s just fine; he’s happy where he is.
At least that’s what he keeps telling himself.
You know how this story ends, but how does it begin?

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.
