Steter Week Prompt November 29: Soulmates, Mates, and Anchors AU
When Stiles was born, a black snake appeared into his crib on the first full moon and never left.
Claudia, whose soulmate animal was a lion, hadn't even flinched, smiling and cooing at the little snake in welcome. It flicked its tongue at her, beady eyes sparking blue, and let Claudia gently stroke it's head. John, whose soulmate animal was a bear, just shook his head, wondering at what kinds of trouble his son and his soulmate would get in to.
Stiles is a vengeance demon, drawn to Peter just as he's waking from his catatonia.
"Whoever did this? We will make those fuckers suffer. I promise you."
Stiles Stilinski once had a happy life and family, but luck had never been quite on his side. Instead his family died and he had to grow up with his stepfamily. There was not a day in his life where he didn't feel lonely.
But then on one day, as he was voicing his frustrations and sorrows, he met the one thing that turned his entire life upside down.
Stiles Stilinski isn't the typical swooning omega the old stories paint people of his status being. He also has the weirdest fucking soulmark ever, and watching yet another boyfriend stumble upon their soulmate is discouraging as fuck.
But maybe this time, it's a blessing in disguise? After all, he has to find a place to live, and there's an apartment available in one of the A/B/O buildings in town. He just doesn't count on the two alphas with a serious hardon for each other being his neighbors. Could it be that both of them also have weird soulmarks?
The Craigslist ad had been because Peter had been wonderfully, spectacularly drunk. Reservations for the Palm are hard to get, even for someone like Peter, and he's had his name down for eight months. He refuses to waste it. If he hadn't been trashed on expensive pinot noir, he would have considered maybe inviting his best friend, Chris, or taking out a niece or nephew. But no, he'd been three sheets to the wind and decided that he needed to share his Valentine's Day dinner reservations with a random stranger.
Peter refuses to let good dinner reservations go to waste just because his (ex)girlfriend cheated on him. He drunkenly makes a Craigslist ad to find a date, and Stiles answers.
