- Teen Wolf (TV) (9)
Derek looked up in surprise to note that they were taking a private jet. Dread settled into his gut like a stone.
“It has a cage, doesn’t it?” he asked quietly, and noted the subtle changes in his family members’ posture. “Is it for me?”
Cora gave him a pleading look and nodded.
“Is it because of what you’re going to tell me?” he asked, voice like gravel.
Another nod confirmed it.
Oh, GOD. It had to be Stiles. Derek would not lose control over anyone else in Beacon Hills and they damned well knew it.
- OR -
The one where Derek has been gone for 6 months building a new life, finds out that Stiles is being assaulted by Theo, so he comes back to Beacon Hills to kick some serious ass and rescue the loudmouthed human who stole his heart.
(You will need ALL the tissues, but it will have a happy ending by the time all is said and done!)
Lydia’s wail tore its way from her throat right in the middle of a pack meeting.
“Lydia? Lydia, look at me,” Derek urged, a slight tremor in his voice as he fought to be gentle with her despite his alarm. She blinked through tears and struggled to meet his gaze as he crouched in front of her. “What did you see?”
“Forest… It’s dark… His Dad is screaming for him…” Her lips trembled as she shook her head and gasped, “Oh, God… He’s dying, Derek. I can feel it… It hurts so much… Oh, poor Stiles…”
- OR -
The one where Stiles is turned into a vampire, hides it from the pack, and tries to manage his new 'condition' without them noticing.
Derek remained stone still, glaring at her injuries for a full minute.
Stiles finally couldn’t take it any longer and started fidgeting. “Uh… You good, big guy? Because you can’t like… physically fight the wounds, you do realize that, right? And you kinda have that stabby look in your eyes and it’s kinda making me seriously question my decision to roll over and literally show my belly to the literal apex predator in my bedroom.”
- OR -
The one where Stiles is wounded and nearly raped by a wolfed-out Jackson before the full moon, and Derek comes over to scowl, growl, and (sorta) make it all better.
Danny grinned and held his hands up for dramatic effect as he declared, “I think Stiles and Derek Hale are secret lovers.”
A geyser of root beer erupted from Scott’s nose and mouth, followed by the surprised shouts of Lydia and Erica as they dodged the surge. Malia snarled in irritation as some splashed her shirt. Scott stood from the table as he coughed and fought for air. Kira clapped him on the back while Isaac helped Lydia and Erica pile napkins on the soda-soaked table.
“You… what?” Scott wheezed once the table was wiped down and the commotion had finally died down. “You think… WHAT?”
- OR -
The one where Stiles is secretly not doing okay (like, at all) after the Nogitsune and Derek (and Peter, surprisingly) help him heal.
“Are you okay? Did something happen?” Derek asked, his grip on the phone tightening.
Stiles gave a humorless laugh. “You could say that…” she muttered unhappily, more to herself than him. Taking a breath, she asked in a voice that was entirely too small for her boisterous personality, “You really don’t remember anything?”
“Why? What should I be remembering?” He racked his brain for clues. He remembered finding it odd that his clothes had smelled so much like her when he woke, but he figured she must have been trying to haul him up or turn him over after he collapsed. “Stiles? What’s wrong?” he pressed determinedly.
She let out a groan of exasperation before finally saying, wearily and with a confusing tone of resignation, “Just… forget it. It’s fine, Der. Don’t worry about it. Go back to trying to get your head on straight, okay? I’ll just… I’ll talk to you later.”
The call disconnected, and Derek stared down at the phone with a growing feeling of unease.
Why did he get the feeling he was missing something huge?
– OR –
The one where Derek returns to normal after spending a few months de-aged and slowly discovers that he and Stiles had grown a whole lot closer.
