- Teen Wolf (TV) (11)
It becomes clear after that first week that Derek is a glorified fucking babysitter for a mentally damaged and emotionally stunted omega. He had signed on to be a bodyguard and an enforcer - that’s his fucking pedigree. He does the dirty work. He buries the fucking bodies. He beats people who don’t pay his boss on time and he does it with glee, enjoys the feeling of bloody knuckles and he likes to fight. That’s what he does.
Now, he spends the vast majority of his time following around a head case. It’s almost demoralizing.
“You’re older,” Stiles begins counting, on his index, “you’re bad news,” on his middle, “you were recently accused of murder,” ring, “and we have not a damn thing in common,” his pinky. “I mean, come on. You just want to mess around with me if you want me at all.”
“Mess around with you?” Derek shakes his head, like that blows his mind. “What is that supposed to mean?”
Stiles waves his hand. “Like, ohh, you’re a bad boy, and I’m the Sheriff’s son, so it’s all so hot. I get it.”
Everything is different, now. But he still hesitates. He watches Derek slide out of the car, watches the cameras flashing across his face and people screaming his name, and then Derek is turning back and holding his hand out for Stiles to take.
Before, Stiles was all alone. Everything he did and everywhere he went, he had to face the monsters all by himself, and he wasn’t equipped to do all that alone. He isn’t alone anymore. Now, he has Derek.
- Part 2 of The Standing Dead
Stiles puts his face in his hands and grits his teeth. “I hate that fucking guy,” he says, and he does. He does, he does, he does.
And what he hates the absolute most about him, more than anything else, is how much he doesn’t.
- Part 2 of Down by Contact
He can’t do this, he knows that he can’t, and Derek is looking right at him with all this concern on his face, and Stiles is so…small. He’s not big enough for this. But he has to do it, and so he does. “I’m pregnant.”
Derek stares at him for a moment. This is it, Stiles thinks. “You’re shitting me,” he says, no inflection.
Completely by chance, I saw a "human boyfriend for werewolf roleplay" ASMR video on YouTube and thought 1. Stiles would totally do something as reckless as making an ASMR channel for werewolves 2. He would be really good at it and 3. It would definitely blow up in his face.
