    Summary

    The last few years in Beacon Hills have left scars on Stiles, in more ways than one.

    It's not until he leaves for college that he realises how much they separate him from the rest of his peers.

    He has to hide his nightmares, his scars, his past. He doesn't feel like he belongs. He's out of context.

    When he goes home for Christmas, he finds himself at the Hale house.

    Because maybe, after everything... improbably... impossibly... it's with Derek that he finally feels he makes sense.

    Summary

    “We can’t just leave him here to die.”

    “He’s an emissary, Scott.” Derek tried to make his tone empathetic, but Scott’s tendency to fight back on everything always grated on his nerves. “His pack is gone, he won’t survive more than a day or two either way.”

    “Then we should stay with him.”

    Derek sighed as he studied the man for a moment; he was too pale against the fur rim of his hood, almost grey from lying out in the snow, and his cloak was stained with dark dried blood around a protruding arrow shaft. It was unlikely he would even last the night. They would probably be able to carry on in the morning with little time lost, if any.

    It wasn’t a horrible idea, Derek decided reluctantly. They hadn’t been able to set up a real camp for a few weeks in the open foothills, and they were all on edge from sleeping in exposed areas. A defensible place to sleep would be good for them, even if they were surrounded by death. They would be able to give the pack proper burials, at the very least.

    “Fine. One night,” Derek relented, already moving away to check on Isaac. “He’s your responsibility.”

    Summary

    It’s the reason he’s here now – on an epic journey for skittles and lucky charms – in a two-bit 24/7. It’s here that everything changes. When the truth comes to a head. When his despair becomes terror. Because Allison and the very much alive Gerard Argent are here too. Grocery shopping, of all things.

    Summary

    “Stiles?”

    Even hearing his voice reminds him what a bad idea this is. “Hey, Derek. Just ran into a beta who was really interested in your location. In a distinctly non-friendly way. So heads up.”

    “Are you alright?” Derek asks. Even through the bad connection he sounds a little wrecked, like he’s got the gist that no, Stiles is not.

    “Peachy,” Stiles lies. They breathe at each other for a moment, until he can’t take all the things they’re not saying, anymore. “How’s Winnipeg? Liking the snow?”

    “Calgary, now,” Derek corrects.

    “Man, don’t tell me that,” Stiles whines. “It’s safer if I just don’t know.”

    “Not safer for you, if you need me.”

    Stiles snorts at that, then winces. If he needs Derek. Sure, let’s put that in the hypothetical. “I gotta go. Just wanted to warn you.” He doesn’t hang up.

    “I love you,” Derek says, fast and hot like he thinks Stiles might cut him off in the middle of it. He’s not wrong.

    “That’s nice,” Stiles says, in a tone that implies the opposite. He ends the call.

    Or

    In which Stiles is an Emissary, Derek is in love with him, and nothing comes as easy as it should.
