    Summary

    "Right, so what exactly are you saying? That I got a letter from Hogwarts?"

    "Basically," Derek says dryly, crossing his arms over his chest, his biceps pulsing. Stiles has to remind himself that this is a life-or-death kind of situation, not a look-at-Derek's-muscles-rippling-and-drool one.

    In other words: Stiles' life gets even weirder.

    The tension in this is delicious! I felt connected to everything Stiles sensed. Felt frightened when he was experiencing magic, felt hot in those moments of sheer awareness of Derek's presence. Highly recommend.

    (This is the one where a coven decides to steal Stiles from Derek's pack.)

    Summary

    Heat and cold existed as binary temperatures in his body. Parrish longed for a spectrum: to feel flames and ice together. Too bad that only happened when he was around the Sheriff.

     

    Or, the one where Deputy Parrish is the moth to the flame, or the flame to the moth, or something else entirely.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    This is a story about having what you want after you've resigned yourself to never even asking for it out of fear. It is longing and sense focused with Food and Temperature and Names as major themes.

    Summary

    It's been a year, and nothing's changed. They're barely a pack, nobody gets along, and everything sucks. There's a monster stalking Beacon Hills, of course, so there's the usual blood and mayhem and terror, but through it all, there's these little moments, glimpses of companionship and laughter and teamwork, enough to torture Stiles with just how much he wants it all.

    OR: Oops, All Found Family!

    This has the right amount of terrifying monster and an understated love story. There's nothing I didn't like.

    Summary

    There stood three pools of water.

    They were still as mirrors and the shiny black of lacquered bowls. In each, Stiles saw a different image, three divergent paths from a single moment in time. He should look away, he thought, not because this was a dream or because he thought these visions were unreal. But because they were real. These three pools existed somewhere in the Wood, three lenses through which the forest watched the unraveling of all things.

    In the first reflecting pool he saw a dead wolf mounted on a pike surrounded by the kindling of a massive pyre still unlit.

    In the second, blood ran in torrents along a maze of cobble stones and mortar.

    And in the third, a house on a hill was a gash of red flame against the night sky. Common among these visions was a man Stiles did not know with eyes like coal and a mouth of gnarled, sharp teeth, the blood in his veins running like quicksilver under pale, papery skin. He was silver death; lye in a decanter of wine, silent and nameless and violent.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    This story has so much in it. It truly is a work of art. Things don't fall neatly into place and so it feels like real life only with magic and shifters and a hundred years war that we haven't learned about in our lessons.

    Summary

    ENTIRE NEIGHBORHOOD EVACUATED IN BEACON HILLS, CALIF DUE TO SUPERNATURAL THREAT
    He recalled that as the first headline that made national news. It was only the first. As things continued to happen, the story took on a life of its own. Derek assumed only the people of Beacon Hills knew the truth of what was happening, but the world gossiped as they watched the town in a bubble slowly shrink.
    Gossip, like how the home used to be full of happiness and a normal family, but when the beast arrived, cloaked in shadow, one night, all of that light was snuffed out. Children and teenagers who feared nothing crept into the abandoned house on a dare and emerged the next morning mute, blind, and bleeding, a red ring around their necks.
    The house the beast had taken over, causing the mass-evacuation of families out of the once-peaceful neighborhood, was Laura’s target. She wanted to investigate. She had told Derek that after a good night’s rest, they would go together in the morning.
    Derek knew, because Laura was his sister and Alpha, that she would not keep her promise.

    This one is one part horror, one part domestic and steeped in subtle emotion. Let it transport you to another world for a spell.
