I can see your soul, even with my eyes closed.
I can hear your thoughts, even if you are silent.
I can feel your claws sinking into my heart, even if you’re not touching me.
I can taste your heartbeat on the tip of my tongue, even miles away from you.
They’re so married, GOSH.
TEEN WOLF AU: Derek gets daily affirmations from Tyler Hoechlin
Inspired by this post, what if every time Derek Hale says something negative about himself, Hoechlin will burst in out of nowhere and tell him that “it’s not true” and whenever Derek tries to argue, Hoechlin will say something positive about Derek and bro-hug him and pat him on the shoulder? (No one loves Derek more than Hoechlin)
“What’s a cheat day?” Derek mumbled finally at his hands.
“Only the best thing ever,” Tyler said, cheery, and clapped him on the shoulder and had him drive them an hour out of town so no one could recognize or harass him, turned on the radio to soft blues and settled easy in the passenger seat, had him pull up at a cozy mom-n-pop ice cream place to get waffle cones with strawberry—his favorite—and then out for sticky cinnamon buns and sweet peach slushies, and when dinner rolled around a couple hours later, found them a hazy, low ceiling, decently populated, honest-to-god, tavern with barrels for bar stools—
“Is the smoke going to be a problem?” Tyler asked, worried now. That was weird; his face was so expressive. When he smiled, he looked like someone you’d like to get to know better.
“No,” Derek said; it wasn’t too big a deal. “It’s fine.”
They found a seat, a neat square of a table, two chairs, Tyler took the wobbly one, kitty-corner to him out of the way of the foot traffic, near the wall so Derek could put his back to it. When their sever slithered up from the bar, she took a good long look at them, handed them waters, laughed and said, friendly and smiling, “Aw, sorry boys, you’re a couple days late for twin night. Brothers?” she laughed again. “You never know, I’ve seen some pretty convincing cousins.”
“Oh,” Derek said, hunching, “Well—” you can’t just say it, he knew, Scott didn’t like it, nobody did—
“Yeah,” Tyler interrupted, watching him and then grinning hugely, leaning back and clapping a hand once more on Derek’s shoulder, effortlessly charming and happy. Derek huddled around his water, quietly jealous, but leaned a little into it. “Guess who’s older. No don’t—it’s me,” and laughed again with her. “What do you have on tap?”
She listed off her stock by rote, and Tyler picked out two and then a side of nachos, deluxe, and wings, and some crunchy potato peels, and halfway through the crackly, juicy skin of one of the wings, Derek said at a hush, “I like cheat days.”
Tyler was quiet and then said, “Anytime.”
(spiritual successor to this)
“—and anyway, Dylan’s a really good kisser so it wasn’t too awkward to shoot,” Tyler was saying.
Derek choked on his beer.
"But you, um, act it like that? Like we’re—. Like you’re—" Derek said cautiously, and the corner of Tyler’s mouth dipped into a frown; it was the most like what Derek saw in the mirror that he’d seen him look yet.
"We don’t have to talk about this if you don’t want to," he said. "If it’s—uncomfortable for you, that’s fine. I don’t want you to think that I—"
"He’s a lot younger than me," Derek blurted out.
"Yeah," Tyler said. "But I guess. I always thought Derek sort of stopped after—" he hesitated, eyes flickering to Derek’s face, and then sighed and said, "after Kate, for a while. And Stiles grew up too fast after his mom died, so."
"Yeah," Derek said.
"It’s just stuff I made up," Tyler said gently. "It doesn’t mean anything about how you—"
"I know it’s not real," Derek said, embarrassed at how raw his voice sounded. "I’ve—we’ve never. that never happened. And Stiles wouldn’t—uh, I think he likes girls."
"Well, it didn’t really—it was a dream sequence, actually," Tyler said. "On the show."
"Oh," Derek said. Tyler took a sip of his beer, watching him quietly over the rim of his glass. "My dream?" Derek said.
"Hm?" Tyler said.
"On the show," Derek said, tracing his finger through the condensation on the bar. "It was you—my dream, right? sort of a one-sided, weird, um. pathetic—"
"It was Stiles’ dream," Tyler said. "You want another round?"
"Yes, please," Derek said.

no but tell us more I BET MY FOLLOWERS WANT IT TOO
Cute AU where Stiles is a werewolf and gets stuck in his wolf form long enough to be found by Derek (a hunter) and somehow becomes his friend and companion.
Gorgeous, slightly angsty wing!fic, in which Stiles was born with wings like is mother, that he can hide with difficulty. I love wing!fic so much, and its rare to find in the Teen Wolf fanodm!! Lots of h/c, Derek petting the wings, JUST BEAUTIFUL
AU, Derek plans to spend the rest of his life holed up in the woods after Laura dies. Then he meets a stubborn young fox, (who is adorable) and the stubborn young fox meets an urn of Deaton’s magic powder, and his plans change.
AU, hunters put a collar on Derek and he becomes stuck in his wolf form for the forseeable future. And he somehow becomes Stiles’ pet dog. Adorable dog!Derek hijinks, great fun.
Superhero AU, an alien virus that rewrites human DNA is accidentally unleashed in a series of small towns and eventually larger cities. It kills 90% of those who come into contact with it (referred to as ‘drawing the Black Queen’). However, 9% mutate into deformed creatures (known as ‘Jokers’) and the remaining 1% gain superpowers (known as ‘Aces’). A percentage of the Aces are referred to as ‘Deuces’, acquiring useless or ridiculous powers. The airborne virus eventually spreads all over the world, affecting tens of thousands. Really great, don’t let the complicated summary put you off.
Secret Agent AU. CIA agent Stiles Stilinski is given an undercover assignment he has to share with a werewolf (enter NSA agent Derek Hale) to investigate a series of werewolf deaths in the area. Long, slow build fic with awesome badassness, great read!
Apocalypse AU, Shifters are everywhere threatening the safety of the Beacon Hills sanctuary, and its up to Stiles and the rest of them to keep everyone safe. Magic!Stiles, pining, protective!Derek, everything I need from an apocalypse AU!!!
AU, Stiles car breaks down on his way to visiting his grandma, and gets stuck in a blizzard, saved only by the mysterious
hothermit man living in the woods. Also there is a wolf that Stiles wants to adopt.
Fluffy cuteness, Stiles finds a dog injured by a car and takes him home. I cannot with how much I loved this fic, actual wolf!Derek is just kryptonite to me!
Funny and cute AU where the human race has just found out aliens exist, and the first visitors are due to arrive when they end up crashlanding near where Stiles goes running. AKA the Hales are aliens and Derek is awful at communicating.
Fluffy short AU where Stiles gets roped into being a unicorn keeper for the rest of his life, which he likes for the most part…except for the eternal celibacy rule along with the hot werewolf who frequently visits the abbey. Lovely.
Angsty hurt/comfort fic with actual wolf!Derek. Derek comes back to his house only to find a human boy already their, stinking of grief and crying his heart out.
Post 3b (Allison is still alive though) snuggling hurt/comfort fic. Derek finds Stiles having a panic attack in the supermarket, and helps him out. I really loved this!
AU, Stiles comes to live with his Dad during college vacation in their new hometown Beacon Hills, where everything is extremely…weird. Like the way everyone in town knows his name the day he arrives. The way they insist the melancholic howling that echoes through the forest every night is just a dog. The way his dad denies getting a dog, even though Stiles comes home to find one sprawled across his bed, some big black thing whose eyes gleam red in the right light. The way that massive oak tree out in the woods vibrates under his touch, pulsing with sickly life. Perfect long, plotty, magic!Stiles and wolf!Derek fic, superb read!
Christmas fic, Stiles is the abominable snowman (he is the most fluffy and adorable okay), Scott is a Christmas elf and Derek is the Great Wolf and everything is really fluffy and weird!
An AU where everyone knows about werewolves, werewolves do a full-shift, and everyone thinks Derek is dead. Until a wolf follows Stiles home and takes over Stiles’ bed. Cute and a bit angsty, but really lovely.
No werewolves, just wolves (and a kitten):
RIDICULOUSLY CUTE AU in which Deaton is still a mysterious magical vet, Kate Argent is still a criminal socipath, and Stiles isstilla crime-solving magical kitten. FLUFF FLUFF EVERYWHERE
Plot twist: They are all actual wolves. I’M EVEN SATISFIED WITH WOLF CUDDLING OKAY THAT IS HOW MUCH I LOVE IT and this is super cute, lots of Derek taking care of Stiles
Derek goes missing, and Stiles is supremely unconcerned. That is, until the pack finally find their Alpha, dirty, naked and out of his mind. Angsty hurt/comfort, with feral!Derek for most of the fic. Definitely worth a read.
When Peter poisons Derek with wolfsbane, Stiles makes a choice. He’s not going to lose. Hurt/comfort, established relationship, non con (in that Derek is forced to force Stiles after being infected by wolfsbane).
Post 3A fic, where Derek Hale comes back to Beacon Hills stoned and happy. Stiles tries not to resent him for it, and mostly fails. Glorious slow build, a big misunderstanding on Stiles’ part, angst and loveliness.
An AU in which magic!Stiles is captured and held hostage in the same room as a feral werewolf!Derek, and they eat a lot of fast food while they try to get out. Amazingly good - this also has some really great art to go with it!! Wow people are talented…
I’m suffering from horrible writer’s block these days and it’s driving me mad. This whole weekend I’ve been trying to write on several of my WIP fics but it usually ends with me opening Photoshop to make manips instead.
Gonna take a break and just play video games tonight. I need it :)
And to everyone who has messaged me lately that I haven’t replied to yet: SORRY! My inbox is a mess but I promise I’ll clean it up soon <3
You don’t belong to people forever.
Then why bother?
Wasn’t it worth it?
