Okay, I am about to start making a VERY long drive weekly to visit my son (5 hours each way) and want to load up my Kindle. And...I want Teen Wolf fics. YES. IT HAPPENED. I watched all of it on Netflix, found it to be a lot of fun, and love a few characters enough to want to read about them. So, um, am I the only person that ships Chris Argent/Derek Hale? I am, aren't I? Sigh. Also want: Sterek. Stiles/Lydia. Peter Hale and ANYONE GOOD LORD.

Only GREAT FICS, pls. Spot on characterization that is them. I don't care if it becomes an AU, but they have to still be themselves. I haaaaate fics that just make them look like the character but not ACT like the character. I know a bunch of you read it, so whatchu love?

Also: um... I totally ship the very made up, not real at all, but oh my god the puppy eyes and energy and pretty skin and jaw-lines of Dylan O'Brian and Chris Colfer. ...this doesn't exist, does it? I feel deep shame just asking for it, so you know. I VERY RARELY read RPS because it makes me feel icky. I don't mind other people digging on it, it's just not usually for me, not anymore. Except for now? I AM BROKEN, OKAY.

In the meantime, I'm dealing the the courts, hospitals, treatment centers, a MiL that has forgotten that I NEVER DO THANKSGIVING WITH HER and why is she asking if I want her to COOK FOR ME?! The answer is always NO., my parents wanting updates on our situation and having to constantly hang up to take other calls, and all of my own prep for our miini-Thanksgiving with my kids and sister/her husband. SO I'M KINDA TEARING MY HAIR OUT. But the light at the end of the tunnel is getting brighter? =/

THANK YOU IN ADVANCE FOR YOUR RECS. <3

AWESOME!! Wow, I am happy I'm not alone, even if I feel a deep shame for digging stories about actual people. Hahaha, I'm a mess. :D

THANK YOU!

So I'll admit I'm sorta in love with Sterek so I have several recs but my absolute favorite story is (Sacred) In the Ordinary by idyll on AO3.

http://archiveofourown.org/works/406369/chapters/670624

The only thing that jumps out at you is there is a background pairing of sheriff/Chris Argent. I swear the story is worth it! Seriously go read immediately. It is a future fic with slow build Sterek.

Hope you enjoy and welcome to the dark side.

Derek/Stiles is not even my main ship (Derek/Kate Argent, anyone? *crickets* And Derek/Chris Argent is definitely seconded! Actually, Derek/Anyone will do. >_>), but I'm partial to Entanglednow's stories. I haven't had time to read the latest one yet, but I can recommend the "Milkshakes & Matchsticks" series (starting here). Very good, distinct POVs, extremely funny and full of true observations about what it was like being a teenager (simultaneously nostalgic and horrifying, as it should be), and cute without being cutesy or glossing over the darker aspects of the characters.

Also: *webhugs to you and fingers crossed for general life-situation improvement*

Kate Argent wasn't a character I enjoyed ultimately. Not enough layers in the Argent women for my tastes. Lydia, though, I enjoyed the hell out of her. Thank you for these recs (they're being seconded, so you clearly know your stuff)!

And THANK YOU for the hugs. <3

lol, everyone joins the teen wolf train one of these days^^

you came to the right adress, there are so, so many good fics, but I'm just going to give you a few of my favourites, with the exception of I think one they are all at least over 10.000 words, because I needed to limit myself, but if you wanted a specific theme (or porn...I mainly left out all the pwp's) just tell me^^. Also they are mearly all Sterek (hinted, pre-slash, established etc.) except if indicated otherwise


Crash Landers by gyzym, In which Stiles learns to Stalk That Stalk. (Or, how to accidentally woo your unfriendly neighborhood alpha in roughly five hundred handwritten steps.), canon continuation

Seconding the Milkshakes and Matchsticks rec, but also her newest one By any other Name, He doesn't know his name, he doesn't know who he is, and neither does the werewolf he's on the run with. But he's pretty sure they hunt monsters, because they seem to be really good at it., great wonderful and actually not that angsty amnesia fic

Outrun your ghosts by lolafeist, When Derek Hale arrives at the Beacon Hills Young Adult Rehabilitation Center, he plans on keeping his head down and serving the rest of his time in minimum security peace. Stiles Stilinski changes all of that., heed the warnings, but this one really is achingly beautiful

The Wolf Whistle series by ashinan, 's one thing to attract the attention of the alpha pack moving in on Beacon Hills, but when Stiles' magic reveals he's not just the resident magic user in town, he realizes there might be more to the Little Red nickname he's adopted as his own., an ongoing series with up till now 5 finished fics, with extremely well done magic!stiles and very believably slow sterek (over 60k and still we are in pre-slash territory) and an extremely intriguing over arching plot

tie a napkin 'round your neck, cherie by magnetic wave, tiles has been a teapot for 3,308 days. // Scott skids into the door breathlessly and shouts, “THERE’S A GIRL IN THE CASTLE,” and promptly brains himself on one of the casserole dishes., hilariously funny and moving teapot!stiles and wheelbarrow!derek, just trust me and read it, it's amazing (and hey compared to the other stuff on this list only about 8000 words)

To have outlived the night by stillane, Derek steps away from the window. “You helped me. They took that as a declaration.”, awesome bamf!stiles, with the pack actually working together, lydia being awesome and conflicts with out of town hunters

Go big or go home by the farofixer (and the corresponding series The complementary series), Danny is not anybody’s gay yoda. He’d like to make that much clear., hilarious Danny thinks he should help Stiles with his sexual crisis over "Miguel", including awesome Lydia+Danny (+Stiles) friendship bonding

Hide of a life war by etharei,

“We have received confirmation that there is a hostage situation in progress at a warehouse compound two hours out of Los Angeles, following a multiple-vehicle pileup on Highway 101 this morning...”

The one in which Stiles has lived to (legal) adulthood and, along the way, become a bit of a badass himself.
, mainly great wonderful stilinski bonding in an extreme situation

Open the door by renay, Derek gives Stiles his jacket., I'm having a hard time summarizing this because it is that and so much more, just a very beautiful progression of their relationship


(more in part two, because lj comment limits)

Here's the long [for me] fic I wrote: http://archiveofourown.org/works/497598/chapters/872161 Peter/Kate and Derek/Kate

And here are my recs:

I hope you enjoy them -- I really hope you enjoy mine, but I know it's an odd pairing.

I've noticed some people heavily reccing a lot of fics I didn't enjoy and thought were majorly OOC. So ... recs as with all things are to be taken with a grain of salt.

Happy Thanksgiving, safe travels, and all my love

DILF by twentysomthings, "Today is Scott's first day of kindergarten and Derek is terrified.", wonderful hilarious AU in which Derek is Scott's and Jackson's step dad and Stiles is their kindergarten teacher

Show you what a howl is for by skoosiepants,
Teen Wolf/SGA team-fic, with Lydia being awesome.

“This is a terrible idea,” Stiles tells the room again. “You’ll all be sorry when Derek pushes me off a cliff.”
you don't need to know anything about SGA, it's just wonderful and hilarious

Darling it is no joke by the hoyden, 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., hilarious AU where Derek is the newest deputy of Beacon Hills

Taking the bus to chinatown by hito, Stiles' home economics teacher forces him to knit mittens. Nobody wants Stiles' mittens, but then Stiles offers them to Derek, and Stiles is pretty sure Derek does these things purely to drive him crazy. What else could it be?, very cute winter themed get-together^^

Lock all the doors behind you by entangled now (because I forgot to mention it and it's the other really long one she did) He has no idea what you're supposed to say when you find one of your...werewolf acquaintances, completely out of their mind, growling like they're about to see what your insides taste like. There's no handbook for this. Stiles is thinking that if he survives he might write one.

Wayward and down by affectingly, Pack is family. Family is everything. This is Stiles' senior year, and it's nothing he could have imagined. beautiful pack fic with spark!stiles, magic!lydia

You saw me standing alone by breenwolf, A pack of alpha werewolves is burning a war path through Beacon Hills; Stiles shouldn’t have the luxury of trying to get laid. , what it says, a beautiful fic, but another one where you should definitely heed that warnings (especially if things like panic attacks are triggering)

Spark, Smolder, Catch by qthelights, When Stiles starts pulling down Derek's burnt-out house, Derek finds himself letting him. He doesn't know why.
Wherein Stiles and Derek are both broken and doing more damage might just be what they both need to move on.
, it has them a building a convincing friendship, that became more without derek really meaning it to, and it's heartwarming and then it hurts and lot and then it's really hot

Howlin' for you by thegirlgrey, Find Danny they said. Just go to the club they said. It would be easy they said. But nothing in Stiles Stilinksi's life is ever easy., AU where Stiles meets super-intense stripper!Derek at his 21st birthday and they instantly get under each others' skin in the most awesome way

aand have part three for the last two:

This is Ridiculous by zosofi, There's a unicorn in Beacon Hills. A fricken' unicorn. In fricken' Beacon Hills, California. And it turns out that unicorns aren't drawn towards virgins in a happy-go-lucky let-me-lay-my-not-at-all-metaphorical-horn-in-your-lap way. No. They kill them. And guess who's the only virgin idiotic enough to get sucked into the Beacon Hills supernatural scene? Stiles, that's who., it has murderous unicorns what more could you want?

There is a brotherhood by minusoneday,
So far, college has taught Stiles three things:
1) Eight am classes are cruel and unusual and should be avoided at all costs, even if it means having to enroll in something truly hideous instead, like Econ 101.
2) Dorm security is just as tight as Stiles’ orientation leader had promised it would be, and the dude guarding Scott’s dorm in particular does not respond well to bribes.
3) Mrs. McCall clearly had no clue what she was talking about when she’d insisted that Scott and Stiles needed to branch out and room with strangers, so it’s all her fault that Scott ended up with a total dick of a roommate and Stiles got stuck all the way across campus with some guy who has a girlfriend two towns over and is thus never around.
Or, the one where pledge brothers Stiles and Scott start a prank war with Derek Hale's fraternity.
, what it says on the tin

and I think that's it for now^^

All of them are really long and plotty, so if you'd want something more character study related, only porn, gen just ask me and I'll see what I can find^^

Assumption Series by Saucery
Derek and Stiles raise a baby together. Or Stiles raises a baby; Derek just hangs around and panics. [They randomly find a werebaby in the woods.]

Wolf Whistle by ashinan
It's one thing to attract the attention of the alpha pack moving in on Beacon Hills, but when Stiles' magic reveals he's not just the resident magic user in town, he realizes there might be more to the Little Red nickname he's adopted as his own.

I will be hanging out in this post bc I was certain the only Teen Wolf that existed was Stiles/Derek and I REALLY REALLY do not ship that.

Also, I am relieved for you guys. Hang in there, it's gonna be better stuff from now on.

LOVE.

I forgot to mention, those are all Sterek. Sterek has become my meaning to live, the reason I wake in the morning, the air in my lungs. They have replaced everything in my life, including Klaine, for the most part.

I do have a secondary pairing, but I haven't found anything rec-worthy for them yet, and they're Peter/Stiles. I love me some crazy ass Peter!

Also, ILU40!!!!!!

(Whatcha watchin'? Whatcha readin? Can we have food? Where's the LEGOs? Why can't I sit on your lap ALL DAY?

God, I love them.)

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.
