  1. Summary

    A liminal space is the time between the 'what was' and the 'next.' It is a place of transition, waiting, and not knowing. Liminal space is where all transformation takes place, if we learn to wait and let it form us.

  4. Summary

    In another life, you and I could've been easier said than done; more than parallels of trauma, more than adjacent lines that intercepted at moments that broke us; you and I could have been something more than the darkness that became us.

    In another life, it could've been simply: you and I.

    Summary

    Frankly, Stiles is beginning to wonder if being stupidly hot is a requirement for werewolfdom, or whether it’s just a requirement for the Hale pack in particular. They’re all aggressively attractive. Stiles’ poor bi heart can’t cope.

    Summary

    Not more than five minutes later Stiles is back in his room, lying on his bed, his laptop balanced up on his bent knees, Derek burrowed against his left side. Stiles is typing furiously, and every now and then Derek nuzzles into him a bit further, like he’s never quite gonna be close enough.

    “We are never gonna speak about this to anyone,” Stiles mutters darkly, as Derek lifts one heavy forepaw and places it possessively across Stiles’ belly. “They must never know how easily you manipulated me with your floofy fur and your puppy dog eyes.”

    Derek chuffs.

    If Stiles squints with his ears he almost thinks it sounds like a laugh.

    Summary

    “Oh no! Don’t you dare put this on me! I tried to talk her down, after you goaded—”

    “Goaded?”

    “You goaded. Don’t pretend you didn’t goad. You goaded your petty ass off. With your shitty little wave, and your sarcasm.”

    “You’re the one who knocked her drink over her, and you’re the one who wouldn’t shut-up!”

    Summary

    Stiles taps on the icon to open up the chat. He needs to write something. Anything. But what?

    What are you wearing? Eh, no.

    So, when the fuck were you going to tell me you’re back in BH? A bit too aggressive.

    Does this mean that my attraction to you in high school was mutual, but you held back on account of me basically being a child and you are now open to exploring the intense, overwhelming feelings I held for you, which I only realized I had the moment I thought I watched you die? Maybe too honest.

    ---

    Stiles hasn't seen or heard from Derek in ten years. It's a bit of a surprise to find out about Derek's return to Beacon Hills through Tinder.

    Summary

    Derek doesn’t want to call the window repair guy. He doesn’t want to sweep up the glass. He’ll inevitably miss a few shards and pull them out of the bottom of his bare feet for weeks.

    He doesn’t want to try to make this place feel like home when it isn’t.

    Derek stayed in Beacon Hills and tried to make it work because he wanted pack, wanted purpose. He gave his best effort and found himself back where he started: alone, with a few begrudging allies. He’s tired, and even though his werewolf body heals quickly, he feels the weary ache down to his center.

    He packs his car with the few things he cares about enough to drag them from place to place. He locks the loft and calls a realtor about listing the building he’d bought in a misguided attempt to secure a future.

    And then he leaves.
