Well, here it is - my modest little fic rec list. I've tried to sort them into categories as well as I can for your convenience and I hope you'll like it because it sure took a while! xP
Crossposted from my tumblr which can be found here if you're interested :)
Canon verse fics:
Things To Do On The Dates You Aren't Having: "So are we dating now or what?" Stiles asks the third time he finds himself doing the obligatory postcoital cuddling with a certain sour wolf. (Wonderful fic, I adore angst like this with a lovely sidedish of fluff. A must read!)
Won't You Lay Your Hands On Me: "He misses his regular appointment to get shorn because he's too busy trying to keep Scott out of trouble and he starts to look a little bit like a hedgehog. By the time he misses the rescheduled appointment though, his hair's grown out enough that he really can't be bothered."
My Light On Your Screen: Derek might have to apologize later. (My brain pretty much stopped working after this fic. Holy shit. Also, Lydia.)
Stir: Stiles wakes up.
Open The Door: Derek gives Stiles his jacket (One of my favourite sterek fics.)
I Think I Love You But I Make No Sound: “Operation Get-Stiles-Into-Derek’s-Pants is a go.”
Depends On Your Definition: Based off of a prompt over at teenwolfkink that read, "Preferably Stiles/Derek but could be gen. The first time someone in the Pack calls Stiles "Mom" it was a joke. After that, the name stuck and it was true anyway. Stiles was around more often then their mothers anyway. Scott's mom was always working in the hospital, Jackson's parents are trying to live the perfect life, Lydia's avoiding her mom as much as possible, Danny's parents are divorced etc. Stiles is the one who packs their lunches and gives advice and is there. It makes perfect sense to them that he is the pack mother. The rest of the school however, is rightfully confused. I'd like each pack member sort of accepting Stiles as a pseudo-mom to the point where they call him that even at school. The rest of the school is confused about why the popular kids are hanging with Stiles and why on earth are they calling him mom? Could be funny or serious." (I thought this would be super weird at first but it's very sweet actually. And Stiles is totally the pack mom either way.)
Hardhearted, Don't Worry (I'm Ready For A Fight): Derek makes his home in Stiles. (So cute!)
Lesson Learned: When Derek tries to use Stiles as an example for picking out different emotional scents, he doesn't get quite the response he was looking for when he pushes him against a wall.
A Little Less Sixteen Candles: In which Derek fails at wooing, and Stiles fails at catching a clue.
Good Intentions: “Yeah,” Derek says.
Untitled Drabble: Derek Hale visits Stiles' first apartment and doesn't leave. Based on a picture. (This melted my heart into a puddle of goo and wrapped my emotions in a nice warm blanket of sterek feels.)
Last Night's Dress (Tiptoe Out Of This Mess): Written for a prompt on the kinkmeme. TFLN: My dad just asked me if my booty call guy that comes over at 3am and leaves at 6 would like to stay for Sunday brunch next week. You in?
Untitled drabble: For this prompt (word was ‘promise’), inspired by this post. Five times Derek doesn’t understand—and once when he does. (Or, in which Stiles gets fangirl-angry and Derek is very upset.) (No but seriusly, every self respecting tumblr fangirl has to read this. Just... just do it.)
I Want You To Want Me: Derek isn't used to wanting things.
Integral to Survival: Derek is in the cell for about ten minutes before the lone door opens and a new body is tossed in. The person hits the floor with a grunt, rolls, and stands as the door is clanging shut. “That’s really not the way to treat a guest!” (This fic is going to claw your heart out, throw it in the fire and watch it burn but oh is it ever worth it.)
Of Sharing Shirts: Stiles borrows one of Derek's shirts because he can, because likes the way it feels and smells. Derek likes the way Stiles smells when he wears it.
His Words Were Pearls: Stiles gets a proposal. Derek doesn't punctuate like normal people.
Beginning, Middle, End: Derek has known since they were kids that Stiles is his mate, he’s just exceptionally good at ignoring the truth.
Damaged Goods: 'There’s fire then, burning Derek from the inside out because he needs to breathe but can’t. Chemical fire rages in his body and he’s going to die in the flames just like his family did. Derek doesn’t want to die, but there is nothing he can do to stop it.'
Sun Up, Running For Home: Episode Coda for 2x10. This will be supremely jossed come Monday. Sheriff Stilinski POV. There's a lot of talking here. I love it when characters share information that could be helpful to their survival. (Written before ep 11 aired so I guess it's an AU but it's so good.)
What Would Derek Do: Stiles tells Derek about how he tried to use WWDD (What Would Derek Do, obviously; it's totally a viable life philosophy, Stiles is considering putting it on a t-shirt for Scott's benefit) to get Lydia to dance with him. He ends up learning something completely unexpected.
Werewolf Lollipop: Stiles has to admit that he has a big problem with keeping his mouth shut at the best of times. But little did he know, one day of forgetting his adderall medication makes his scent say more than his mouth could ever achieve.
Red Velvet and Fur (A Hanky Code for Gay Werewolves): In which Stiles in unrepentant in his (somewhat accidental) quest to get Derek to knot him, Derek is oblivious and sexually frustrated, and Lydia is the incredibly attractive devil on Stiles' shoulder who has nothing but terrible, amazing ideas. Who knew there was a hanky code for werewolves? (I have no words.)
In Large Packages: His social circle consists almost entirely of creatures of the night and men who dress as women; if he ever wants to pop his cherry he’s going to have to make some concessions somewhere.
To Wong Foo, Thanks for Everything! Julie Newman: It’s the summer before senior year and Stiles is doing just fine. Right up until he gets shitfaced and tells a room full of drag queens that he’s attracted to an alpha werewolf and that oh, yeah, he’s been wondering about whether or not they have knots. It all goes downhill from there, but in a good way. (Everything about this fic is pure perfection, I swear.)
Five Thousand Unicorns and a Gold Star: There is a fine line between parenting and being a kindergarten teacher. Stiles does both. (So. Damn. Cute!)
Under Your Skin: "So you decided hepatitis would be fun"; or the one about tattoos, waffles and ghouls.
Say You're Sweet For Me: In which Stiles is baffling and Derek is determined to get to the bottom of it. (I love this with every fiber of my being.)
Worst Case Scenario: Stiles is good at compartmentalizing bad news. It's partly a learned behavior, and partly because of his well practiced coping technique. It may not be the most emotionally healthy thing to do, but it gets him through the day.(This is angsty but fuck if it isn't amazing.)
So I Know You're Mine: Prompt fill. Stiles has such fair skin. Derek loves the way his marks show up so easily. Stiles loves it, too. Thank god lacrosse season is over. (Too hot for words)
Wish That I Could Just be Brave: When Derek blows Stiles off for dinner with someone else, Stiles decides to confront him. Things . . . get a little out of hand.
Mercy Has a Human Heart: It only hurts if he tries to fight it. (Honestly, this is such a gorgeous and well written fic.)
Canon verse with AU twists:
Mating Habits of the Domesticated American Werewolf: Derek doesn’t do pining. He doesn’t. So when it becomes clear that Stiles is much more interested in having Derek as a new best friend than a boyfriend, he puts on his big boy pants and makes it fucking work. He becomes the best goddamn friend a spastic teenager could ever hope to have. (Just read it. Read it and weep. Also marvel over the fucking brilliancy that is this fic.)
The Inside Job: Lydia wakes up as Alpha and takes to it like she takes to everything. Perfectly. (Lydia's POV. Also Lydia/Allison)
Nothing Gets By a Stilinski AKA Stiles Had to Get His Awesome From Somewhere: In Which Sheriff Stilinski almost gives Stiles a heart attack. Inspired by this photoset.
Introducing Miss Lydia Ladybug Stilinski: When Stiles adopts a vampire kitten, no one really believes him."It's like the vampire abyss stared into the werewolf abyss and decided they need to be bros," Stiles whispers, horrified.
To Have Outlived The Night: Derek steps away from the window. “You helped me. They took that as a declaration.”
Every Step You Take: Stiles accidentally ends up magically bound to Derek. It’s super. (Holy crap, this fic is super! Stiles is written so well I almost want to cry.)
Hey There Little Red...: (Post ep for S2e04) Stiles knew that agreeing to meet Lydia in the middle of the damn woods, in the middle of the damn night wasn't one of his best ideas. Really. He did. (Now: Completely AU-Canon!) (Everyone has to read this - it is now Teen Wolf fandom law.)
Shepard Of The Stray Hearts: But because Stiles is apparently the patron saint of crushes on people he doesn’t have a chance in hell with, it doesn’t work that way. Instead he catches himself watching Derek furtively whenever he’s in Derek’s general vicinity. Actually, lately he mostly just feels twelve again, which is awful on too many levels to name.
Fuzzy Logic: Derek and Stiles switch bodies because of wizard reasons and Stiles just wants to know what that awesome scent is. (Insane, hilarious and mindblowingly hot)
The Alexandrian Solution: "I accept your body!" Stiles says hurriedly. "I accept you. Sexually." There is a pause. Derek says, "Thanks." (Just read it, you won't regret it.)
Curiosity Killed The Cat: A fill for the Teen Wolf kink meme: In which, Derek was captured by hunters after his house burned down, and Stiles and Scott stumble upon him, half-feral, in a filthy cage, in some hunter's shady backyard shed. Original is here.
9/10ths of the Law: Stiles discovers the hazards of growing up a real boy when, at heart, he's not a real boy at all. (Supernatural crossover with glimpses of the Winchesters. I'm usually not into demon!Stiles at all but this was different. In this fic Stiles was stillborn and died as an infant before he was possesed by a demon, so Stiles actually is the demon and so not possessed by one in the usual sense.)
Happy Accidents (At Least That's What Stiles Insists It Is): Kink meme fill in which Derek is an emotionally constipated idiot with a martyr complex, and Stiles is oblivious. Werewolves don't just stick to lush forests in California and Stiles is kind of a magnet for trouble. Also, humans can't be Alphas. But since when has Stiles ever listened to conventional wisdom?
On The Job Training: Stiles finally gets the practical experience he's been looking for. It's safe to say it doesn't happen even remotely the way he was expecting. AKA, pretend boyfriends! With a twist! (It's so good!)
Hyper Heart Alone: When Stiles returns home to help his father recover from an injury, he discovers that things have changed somewhat in his absence: Derek is working closely with Stiles' father, around the house and underfoot, generally annoying and disconcerting Stiles with his presence. Well, Stiles isn't sure you could call all the sex they end up having annoying, but he isn't really willing to call it anything else, either.
There's A Wolf-Shaped Float In This Parade: Two ways Sheriff Stilinski finds out and one he doesn't. (Non-graphic references to past underage.)
The Complementary Series: (This is where the fandom famous "complete/compliment" quote is from and it's absolutely amazing.)
Touchpaper: Danny is bruised. Their werewolf drama has officially bruised Danny. This is the worst day ever. (Guh, that's all I'm saying.)
Threaded Through A Needle, Tied Into A Knot: In hindsight, maybe waiting until their wedding night to bring up the whole knotting thing wasn’t the best idea. (One of the best and hottest Sterek fics I have ever read. My brain is eternally fried after this one.)
Except What Has Been Forgotten: In which Stiles wakes up with a shiny new case of amnesia and it's immediately obvious that his best friend is lying to him - which might have something to do with the (hot) guy who keeps appearing his room. What the hell has he been doing for the past 18 months? (Another fic from suzvoy who's one of my favourite sterek writers.)
Be There In The Morning Just To Hear Me Say: Kinkmeme fill. When Scott ditches Stiles for Allison and the rest of the pack goes back to ignoring him as usual, Stiles decides to get a dog. A cat wouldn't get along with the pack, but a puppy would have to, right? ...Or not. Most definitely not. Who knew?
Seaside Framed In Glass: "I'm going to name you Derek," Stiles announces, still looking cross-eyed at the puppy in his hands. It's looking back with a confused and sad expression, probably asking Stiles in some baby dog language why it's being named after a brooding werewolf. "It's because you're always sulking, even though I got you a nice basket and biscuits and everything," he says sternly. The puppy whines and hangs its head. Derek is pretty cute.
Important Things: Stiles learns that even with werewolves, giant lizards and psychopathic hunters on the loose, life can still find other ways to screw with you. Case in point: everyone keeps assuming he and Derek are a couple. What the hell? (Love it. Loveitloveitloveit.)
500 Days (Of Sitting In Front Of The Computer): The boy, Stiles Stilinski, had always been into MMORPGs. The other boy, Ithuriel, had always been into MMORPGs as well, albeit secretly. The Alpha, Derek Hale, was possibly the object of Stiles's affections. One day, Stiles met Ithuriel. But be warned, this is not a tragedy in which Derek Hale saves Stiles's virtue from Ithuriel. That would be ridiculous. This is a love story. (I have no words. I have no. words. Just read it, it's hilarious and absolutely brilliant.)
All You're Giving Me Is Friction: kalpurna: is it weird that I want an original character to call Stiles a cock tease and Stiles is like WHAT and Derek is like what.
drunktuesdays: lol that's so specific! why?
kalpurna: BECAUSE YOU MADE A TUMBLR POST THAT USED THAT PHRASE AND EVERYTHING IS ABOUT TEEN WOLF + PEOPLE SHOULD TRY TO GET ON STILES'S DICK AND DEREK SHOULD NOT BE ABLE TO HANDLE IT???? MAYBE I JUST LIKE TO THINK ABOUT STILES TEASING COCKS????????????????
For Kalpurna, from whom I stole all the best lines.
A Californian Werewolf in New York: When Derek finally realizes that there's nothing left for him in Beacon Hills, he goes back to New York, gets a life, falls in love and finds his home. (A podfic/fanfic collaboration)
Say It Again and Mean It: No, I mean.” She takes the note, flustered. “Why are you so interested in helping? You don't even know us.” Stiles swallows heavily, searching for the slender line between a lie and a truth that he doesn't want to speak. “Because I have a soft spot for idiot teenaged werewolves,” he says finally. “It's a character flaw." (This. Is. Perfection. Seriously, I love pack mama!Stiles and the whole 'they both like each other but think it's onesided/misunderstandings' thing in fics.)
Flare: “We are not killing her! God, do you even hear yourself?!”
The Perils of Fungi: “Yeah, he’ll be fine,” Derek says evenly, hoping Scott is too freaked out to sense that it’s at least two-thirds of a lie because Derek probably knows what this is and Stiles is probably going to be just fine, but poking purple mushrooms with sticks has consequences, dammit. (I have no words.)
Kid Tested, Father Approved: The one where Derek is like a box of Kix (or something).
It Will Come Back to You: After breaking up with his boyfriend, Stiles finds a wounded dog in the woods. Something about it reminds him of his ex, so he names it Derek. He doesn't know exactly how fitting that name is.(or, how Stiles finds out that the ex-boyfriend that he's still in love with is a werewolf) (Hilarious and adorable.)
You are the Moon: Stuff Stiles doesn’t like to deal with first thing: hot, moist dog breath in his face, a cuddly werewolf creepifying his perfectly normal morning wood with shades of bestiality, and his dad holding his service revolver up against the skull of his bedmate, never mind the fact that his bedmate could possibly be a vicious unhinged rogue omega. (This is so fucking good and sweet. Full shift!Derek is my crack.)
Darling It Is No Joke: The first thing Stiles thinks when he opens the door is that it’s not his birthday, but someone has sent him some kind of cop stripper.
Is that a gun in your pocket, or are you just happy to see me?: Stiles might be a little sick of unrequited feelings or lust or whatever. The situation with Derek- Deputy Hale, he has to keep reminding himself, because he’s never actually told Stiles his name and that’s getting into creeper territory pretty quickly- has gone past the merely-wanting-to-jump-his-bones stage and well into die-hard-crush, complete with inappropriate fantasies involving handcuffs and roleplaying. And the problem with that, of course, is that he tends to resolve situations like these one of two ways: going out and getting drunk, or staying home and getting drunk.
The ETA from You to Me: In which Derek drives a tow truck and Stiles is the weekend dispatcher who attempts to woo him with his lack of a brain-to-mouth filter and affinity for run-on sentences. (One of the best sterek fics I have ever read and I love it with every fiber of my being. I can't believe I put off reading his for so long because once I started I ended up reading the entire thing in one day.)
Alpha Spikes: AU. Alphas are like royalty and are offered their choice of any age eighteen-and-up virgin Omega for each year's heat season, as a tribute to all they've done for their communities. Derek is an Alpha and...yeah, Stiles. Stiles is an Omega. And still a virgin. In every way. And he's just turned eighteen. This...is not his day. (fill for this prompt) (Come on, I can't make a Sterek rec post without this lovely thing)
You Don't See Straight: Stiles finds himself in a secret werewolf community to participate in a mating run. Sterek happens. Side OC's. (You know, during the first two chapters or so I was quite sceptical but once I got into it... Holy shit, it was just wonderful. So wonderful that even the OC's don't bother me -the opposite even!)
The Sanctuary: Stiles runs away during his first heat, right into the waiting and ambiguously scary arms of the Alpha's nephew, Derek Hale. He doesn't have any choice except to submit, but along the way, he digs up a mystery that threatens his family and even the town's safety.
It's a Wonderful Surprise: AKA the one where Isaac keeps proposing to Stiles on Derek's behalf. Isaac is five and Stiles is his kindergarten teacher. Oops. (The. CUTEST. Thing. I. Have. Ever. Read! No but seriously you'll have to look a long time to find something as heartbreakingly precious as this fic. ISAAC IS DEREK'S ADOPTED SON FOR CHRIST'S SAKE I CAN'T.)
College is Stupid, or the Five Times Stiles Made a Complete Ass Out of Himself in Front of Derek and the One Time he Didn't: Stiles is a sophomore at UC Santa Cruz and really, you'd think he'd have grown out of making an ass out of himself by now.
A Broken Heart Is Blind: College AU - When Lydia dumps Stiles to get back with Jackson, Stiles rebounds with Derek, his former TA. It was just supposed to be a one night stand, but they're both a little confused about what the rules for those are.
Raptus Regaliter: King Stilinski must offer his only son in marriage to the Hales, in order to end the war between humans and werewolves. Or, the one in which Stiles and Derek get gay-married. For world peace.
My Patience Is A Medal: Special Agent Derek Hale works in the White Collar division of the FBI, with a crack team consisting of Agents Argent and McCall, and, more recently, the consulting con-man, Stiles Stilinski. Trouble is, Stilinski's in love with him. Or is it just another con?
The Science Of Touch (Is Not An Art): Derek is an executive with mo' money, mo' problems. Stiles is a masseur that should know better. (He doesn't. Clearly.) Bottles are opened, incense is lit and much oil is unleashed. It's a full-scale war… of sexual tension. (And sex.)
Cinder-Boy and the Nightmare Prince: The epic love story of Stileserella and his mysterious, rather creepy prince. (I adored this one! Part of a series that features Sterek in various fairy tale scenarios)
The Ebb of the Sea: Sheriff Stilinski and his wife couldn't have children. In her desperation, Mrs. Stilinski found a young Selkie boy and hid his sealskin. Only she knew where it was hidden; when she died, so did that knowledge. Stiles grew to love his human family as his own, even grieving the death of his captor/mom, but the sea still calls to him in Beacon Hills. (Short, sweet and strangely appealing)
Even Forbidden Fruits Get Picked: When Stiles’ best friend gets himself bitten by a rogue werewolf, Stiles convinces him to seek aide from the local pack. Stiles tags along, ready to help Scott despite the knowledge that he likely wouldn’t be welcome. Doms rarely ever approved of Stiles and he thought the Hales would be no exception, so he was surprised to find that not only had the rogue seemed to develop some kind of creepy fascination with him, the young alpha wolf, Derek, seemed to want him as well. (BDSM Universe fic.)
Ain't That A Kick In The Head: Wherein Hogwarts is a hotbed for teen romcoms where the surly hot guy is really a romantic dork who pines after the oblivious nerd who love getting into trouble. Oh and there are dragons. AND FEELINGS. And magic, but that's really not important to the plot.
Fire Burn and Cauldron Bubble: When potions prodigy Stiles blows up one cauldron too many during one of his ‘experiments’, he gets assigned to making Wolfsbane Potion for the new groundskeeper. Which wouldn’t be so bad if the guy wasn’t you know, terrifying. (Adorable Harry Potter AU.)
Forty Six & 2: Inspired by this prompt asking for FTM!Stiles. Stiles has come to the realization that he’s going to need to tell the pack that he’s transgender before they find out on their own. He’s only ever told one person before, and he’s still thankful Scott was a true best friend. He only hopes the others take his news as well. (Beautiful, really)
I Want Your Lips To Sing: "But for some reason, when Stiles sees Derek talking to Lydia, the two of them painfully good-looking, all she can think about is that her hair is in a messy ponytail and there's pizza sauce on the hem of her t-shirt. It's not like she wants to go on a montage out of a '90s teen film and come out like Rachel Leigh Cook on a staircase, but Stiles maybe thinks she doesn't want to look like the homeless one in the pack." With mindmelting sequel, You're Losing Sleep Tonight. (Girl!Stiles. This is... I... I have lost my words.)
You Make My Heart Beat (Faster): In which Stiles breaks into the Hale house and subsequently learns some new things about the full moon, Dereka, and herself. Or: Stiles gets maybe three steps before she’s squeaking and being shoved up against a wall, hard. Dereka must have been working out, or running, or something, because she’s sweating, and holy walloping weres, she’s in just a sports bra. That’s - a lot of bare, glistening skin, Jesus, and Stiles spends plenty of time in the girls’ locker room. But still. Cripes. (Fem!Sterek, which just so happens to be my most recent obsession. I adore this fic.)
Kiddie fics (includes Mpreg):
I'm Betting This Wasn't Beta Tested: Derek is thrown into a violent heat in the wake of Lydia and Peter's actions at the end of Party Guessed. Debilitated by his own needs, Derek reaches out to Stiles, the only person he wants and can hope to trust. Sequel, with mpreg, here. (I'm very rarely into bottom Derek but that knowledge fucking flew out the window while I was reading this fic. Holy shit. Just... just read it. It's delicious smut with plenty of angst and fluff to spice it up.)
Reasonable To Assume:"You're a werewolf! He's a werebaby! How can you not know what to do with him?" (The most adorable thing I have ever read, featuring fluffy werebabies with epic names and domestic HBIC Stiles.)
Last To Know: Kink meme fill in which every werewolf and shapeshifter in Beacon Hills is aware that Stiles is pregnant before he is. And apparently the first baby!werewolf being born into the pack (their Alpha's, no less) is a big freakin' deal and excuse enough for everyone to lose their damn minds. When Stiles figures out why everyone's been acting so weird around him, he's not amused. (MPREG. I am absolutely in love with this fic - in character mpreg fics are hard to come by, much less one as wonderful as this one.)
Animal Skins: The first time Stiles dresses Caleb up in a ridiculous outfit Derek thinks it’s a joke. He comes home from work one day and is greeted by the sight of their newborn pup in a zebra onesie complete with ears and a tail. (MPREG BABY. Honestly, this is so fucking precious and totally something Stiles would do to his kid.)
Stiles/Derek, established Scott/Isaac
The one in which Stiles and Derek are dogs and Scott and Isaac are their owners.
I have no idea where this came from but here it is all the same. Here’s how I picture them as dogs, something I had way too much fun making.
Media: Fic, crossover
Title: I Am Never Wearing Bowties Again
Spoilers: Nothing past season 2 of Glee and season 5 of Doctor Who
Warnings: None really, except for me taking the liberty to mash these two shows together and all that that entails.
Word Count: 5 699
Summary: The TARDIS drops The Doctor and Kurt off outside a private school in Westerville and, naturally, they decide to check it out. Kurt might find a bit more than he bargained for though.
Authors Note: You know what, I’m not even going to give you any excuses for the lateness of this thing and just tell you that I’m deeply ashamed for neglecting it. I’ve decided to end it a little earlier than I planned because I really don’t feel like I should write more of this if I have to force it out. It’s been lovely writing this story though and I’m rather pleased with the ending. I hope you enjoy my lovelies!
Title: It Gives Me Thrills To Wind You Up
Word Count: 1524
Summary: Blaine has a crush on one of McKinley's resident skanks. Too bad she wont even look twice at her.
Author's Note: So skank!Kurt seems to be this fandom's new project and I have absolutely no objections to that what so ever. And since I've also been into cisgirl!Klaine lately I decided to combine the two. It's just a short drabble, but I needed to get it out of my system.
Title is from Kate Nash's "Foundations
