This is for Amber, who won a fic from me in a giveaway like a year ago (I’m so sorry it’s taken so long ;___;). She asked for a Sterek jock/nerd auction.
"I said no, Cora," Derek replies waspishly, rolling onto his back. He drags a hand over his face. "I have plans."
"Oh please," Cora scoffs. "Studying doesn’t count."
"Finals are - "
"Two weeks away," Cora cuts in scornfully. "It’s only a couple hours, Derek, not a full day. You’re not going to be missing out on anything."
Derek scowls up at the ceiling, trying another direction. “You can’t just pimp me out like this. I - “
"Oh my god,” Cora sighs. “Look, I didn’t do this to ruin your life, okay? I was legitimately going to go, but I can’t swap shifts again or Mel says she’ll fire me - I wasn’t going to pull you into this. I don’t see why you’re complaining; it’s all paid for, and it’s all for charity. A good cause, Derek!”
"If it’s all paid for, then why do I have to go?" Derek argues.
Cora sounds like she’s about to pull her hair out. “Because I thought it might be nice for you to get out of your apartment? Just ignore the fact that it’s a date and think about it as a chance to get a nice meal on someone else’s dime, okay?”
Derek hesitates. He has been eating a lot of microwave meals lately. “Isn’t your date going to be pissed when a guy shows up? Won’t he be expecting you?”
He can almost hear Cora shrug. “He’ll probably just be happy someone shows up, to be honest. I only bid on him because no one else did and I felt bad. And anyway, his little stat sheet thing said he was bisexual, so I think it’ll be fine.”
Derek sighs. “What’s his name?”
"I don’t know."
"Cora - "
"I don’t know,” Cora repeats, aggrieved. “They were playing up the whole mystery date thing. You just go to the restaurant and tell them you’re there for Bachelor #6, and they do the rest.”
"This is the stupidest thing I’ve ever heard of, and I’m including that time Laura thought it would be a good idea to jump off the roof into the shallow end of the pool," Derek says, and Cora giggles at the memory. He sighs again. "I’ll do it, but only because I want steak."

wait, that’s only TWENTY-THREE FICS you say? i also have a new chapter for you!
its derek hale wtf (M, 15k) chapter 9 update
Stiles doesn’t buy the whole magical, transcendent soulmate reveal story, snickers at all those movies where the couple touches each others marks for the first time, eyes glimmering over in emotion when they feel the bond surge through their bodies (who comes up with this stuff?), shakes his head at all those dreamy-eyed people willing to shell out money to track down their other half.
Stiles is just really ambivalent about the whole thing. He meets his other half in his lifetime? Cool. If not? It’s just fine; he’s happy where he is.
At least that’s what he keeps telling himself.
You know how this story ends, but how does it begin?
In honor of the #SterekFest happening today, here’s a fic rec list with amazing fics I read over this summer :D
A Day As Nice | T
A short story about butts, emotional boys, confessions and kiss!! :D
A Strong Heart and a Nerve of Steel | E
First son!Stiles and bodyguard!Derek… what else do you need!?!? sdkjf No, but okay, it’s awesome and perfect. So damn perfect! They get married, they have to stay married, they kinda want to stay married, but they’re too oblivious to each other. Stupid boys in love. Also, DAMN, so hot. Those scenes were intense with all the sexual tension.
Babcia Knows Best | T
BINGO! Derek and Stiles playing bingo with Stiles’ grandmother. It’s so so awesome.
Believer and a Homecoming | M
No matter how Teen Wolf ends, this is a awesome future fic. Also… ahah, beard!Stiles. I feel Derek’s pain. Expect a lot of feels ;_;
Black Out Days | T
You could say this is a fake/pretend relationship fic, except, maybe, not quite. Regardless, it’s amazing and there’s just so many feels. Stiles has temporary amnesia and… well, he remembers some stuff, but that doesn’t mean he remembers it right.
But Then What… | E
Extremely hot highschool au, also oblivious boys, some misunderstandings… I loved it :D
Coworkers (In The Closet) | T
I have a huge thing for office aus. And this one, even tho short, did not disappoint, on the contrary! ;_; There’s posts its and banter, it’s perfect!
Good With Words | G
This was so cute ;_; so much fluffy feelings! Oblivious boys that like each other, but don’t know how to say it ;_; also Dirty Dancing references :D
Introduction to Zero-Sum Anthropology | T
Omg this fic was so perfect! It seriously made me smile for the rest of the day! It all starts when Stiles gives Derek spoons. Things escalate from there! :D Post S3A!
Make Grilled Cheese, Not War | E
This fic is super sweet. I seriously couldn’t stop reading it! Stiles is a homeless guy and Derek is the new volunteer cook at the shelter. It’s wonderful to see how they complete each other so well :))
my heart’s been offline | E
THIS WAS PERFECT, OKAY? ;_; Stiles is a reporter and also a farmer in Beacon Hills. Derek is the son of Oscar winning actress Talia Hale. They start talking online and then they meet and just read it okay? Also Scydia!!! :))
lay your armour down | E
Probably the best agent AU fic I’ve read of Sterek ;_; Derek and Stiles don’t get along, but they’re forced to work together on a mission. Stiles works as an undercover cop and Derek…. Derek is Stiles’ dog. No, seriously, it’s awesome! HURT/COMFORT TOO!
only fools rush in | T
As far as fake/pretend relationship fics go, this one is definitely at the top. Derek invites Stiles to be his plus one for Laura’s wedding. They’re both assholes to each other, which only makes it better, but they pretend so good ;) so, so good!
Painful Maneuvers | T This was so sweet!!! Single dad Stiles, who is also an obstetrician, works at the same hospital as Derek, a very grumpy midwife. It’s so sweet and filled with misunderstandings, but it all works out in the end :D
Past The Breakers | E
I read this during my vacations, at the beach, so really, perfect scenario for a perfect fic. Stiles works at Seawolf Beach Resort, owned by the Hales. Derek is a lifeguard and there’s surf lessons. Also naked surfing. Oh and kisses, so many kisses. It’s perfect.
Rainy Days Never Prepared Him For This | T
FLUFF ALERT! There’s rain, there’s walking in the rain, there’s sharing umbrellas, there’s cuddling, there’s holding hands… Derek and Stiles are neighbours, they’re both extremely oblivious, Scott is the best friend everyone wants.
Swept Away | G
Fan!Stiles and Actor!Derek meet during a convention… it’s perfect :DD
The One Where They’re Forced To Marry In Ye Olden Times | E
I think we should gather ridiculous covers for Stoney to create more wonderful stories like this one. Just a thought. The king forces Derek and Stiles to marry to forgive all Hale’s debts. Perfect slow build.
The Price | T
It’s been a long time since a fic made me cry so much. I had to stop to go to the bathroom and cry because it was too overwhelming. To save the town, Stiles gives up of something very important to him. It was such an amazing fic to read, with an happy ending!! I promise!
This Might Be Irony | M
A few fics keep me awake until 5AM when I have work on the next day… this was one of them. High School AU with baseball player Derek and artist Stiles, inspired by a Taylor Swift song. They’re neighbours, they’re like best friends and… well, things happen.
You Could Be Good For Me | T
Allison asks strangers to kiss for the first time. And this is how Derek and Stiles meet :))
what fourth wall where | M
Fanartist!Stiles and Actor!Derek :)) it’s so cute and so awesome! I’m going to need this trope to become a thing in this fandom! :D
Sam needs something to cuddle. Gabriel is happy to provide. - Rating: G, WC: 715
Sam is too curious for his own good. Fortunately, Gabriel doesn’t mind. - Rating: NC17, WC: 6010
"Whoa, Sammy," Gabriel murmurs. "Still getting off on what you shouldn’t have?" - Rating: E, WC: 1261
(Decided to post all the Sabriel fics I love because people have been asking and apparently it’s too hard to find the Sabriel rec list button on the side…enjoy!~)
Based on the TV show Castle: Gabriel Tricksler is a successful crime author with everything going for him. He’s got a great publisher behind him, several best-sellers under his belt and now Hollywood wants to make his books into a blockbuster. Life couldn’t get much better.
Well, he could find some motivation to write.
Luckily for him, or maybe not as it turns out, a body is discovered at one of his charity events, and the investigating officer is none other than Sam Wesson, one of the city’s best homicide investigators and perfect inspiration. He’s not so keen on working side-by-side with Gabriel Tricksler, but his Chief makes sure he has no choice in the matter.
Of course, when Gabriel manages to literally stumble over a second corpse, Sam starts to suspect that Gabriel is more involved than he’s letting on.
I did a little digging- the shop exists but the owner was killed sometime before the Battle of Hogwarts. So for now, be content to know that there’s a new owner in the place. This is set ~12 years after the Battle of Hogwarts.
Sam Winchester has known his entire life that he wants to work around books.
He’d been brought up by his muggle father, after “Mary Campbell” joined the list of witches and wizards killed in the second rise of Voldemort; he, his father, and his older brother had just barely escaped using the family car, which Mary had “enhanced” with a few possibly illegal spells. Then Dean had gotten his Hogwarts letter, seven years later, and returned on summer break with heaps of parchment, quills, and dusty spell books. Sam was only eight at the time, but those books entranced him. He wanted so badly to be a part of the wizarding world, even though his father disliked it. Ever since Mary’s death, everything pertaining to magic was taboo conversation. Dean told him about the school in secret after Dad had gone to bed.
He was seventeen years old now, and still remembered the sheer relief he’d felt when he finally got his letter. He’d been so worried about taking after dad, being unable to ever understand the secrets of those books. Dean was more interested in things like brooms and duel clubs, but Sam had always known magical books were his favorite part about being a wizard. Even his love potions smelled of books and ink and parchment- along with the tang of green apples and a hint of pine.
