Rectober #11: October Sterek Recs  
I actually read several longer Sterek fics this month, yay! It seems like there have been a lot of long fics lately, but I have just been marking them for later, because I don't have as much time to read. So I was glad to work my way through a few. :D

Title: An Alpha's Duty
Author: favicon halfhardtorock
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 2,979
Warnings: AU: Omega!Verse, alpha/beta/omega dynamics, omega!stiles, knotting, bottom!stiles, heat cycles, underage
Summary: "He needs to be play-mated. Soon. He’s…ripe," the Sheriff finally says, brusquely. Derek looks up, mouth falling open in surprise.
"W-what?" he asks.
"You’re the alpha," the man presses, voice deep and strong-willed. "It’s your duty to take charge of the omegas in your territory."
God, there need to be about a thousand more "just the tip" fics, IMO. Crazy hot and really loved the play mating concept!

Title: Rites of Passage
Author: favicon Rena
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 3,025
Warnings: AU: Werewolves Exist, dub-con, xenophilia, bottom!stiles, outdoor!sex, wolf!derek, mates, knotting
Summary: The wolf sniffs again, a low growl rolling through his chest, and then he charges towards Stiles.
Super hot xeno fic!


Title: Not Quite Done (Part 2 of the Sex Shoes Series)
Author: favicon theroguesgambit
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 3,260
Content/Warnings: implied bottom!stiles, underage, outdoor!sex
Summary: Stiles and Derek might be stretching the definition of "once and done" just a little bit. But this is their fist time having sex on Derek's front porch, isn't it?
Totally within the rules.
Awesome and super hot sequel that shows how badly both of them don't want it to just be a one off. Love this verse.

Title: Hell of a Life
Author: favicon runphoebe
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek, background Scott/Kira
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 7,131
Warnings: established relationship, MREG, bottom!stiles, rimming, implied switching, marriage!fic
Summary: Stiles and Derek have a baby. They are happy.
Super fluffy, domestic, MPREG. Sexy and feel-good.

Title: The One With The Mail-Order Brides and A/B/O Dynamics
Author: stoney321 | favicon Stoney
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 16,145
Content/Warnings: AU: omega!verse, werewolves exist, wolf!derek, alpha!derek, omega!stiles, alpha/beta/omega dynamics, heat cycles, knotting, talk of MPREG, off screen major character death (not Sterek), switching, bottom!derek, bottom!stiles
Summary: Wolves aren't meant to be alone. Laura tells Derek this repeatedly. Which... is why Derek knows he's losing his mind, as Laura has been dead for more than six years. Wolves aren't meant to be alone.
And so he sends away for a companion. JUST for a companion, not for a mate. The universe, however, has a different plan in store for him.
Such a lovely fic! I felt so much for both Derek and Stiles and all that they'd lost, but their relationship was so wonderful and sweet. They fit together so well here and I adored their connection and all of their vulnerabilities, Derek is particularly amazing in this one. Awesome take on a/b/o dynamics and super hot sex!

Title: an exultation of larks
Author: favicon llassah
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 28,260
Warnings: AU: omega!verse, AU: Historical werewolves are known, shepard!derek, Alpha/Beta/Omega dynamics, knotting, heat cycle, first time, omega!stiles, bottom!stiles, prince!stiles, bonding!fic
Summary: All Derek wants is to get through the lambing season with his body and spirit intact. He had thought that the blizzards would be the main danger, not a highborn omega with beautiful eyes and a stubborn streak.
The writing in this was beautiful and the world building and imagery was superb. The lambing aspect was really interesting and I adored the connection and relationship development between Stiles and Derek. Great a/b/o fic with some super hot sex.

Title: In Sanguinem Scriptum Est
Author: secondstar | favicon secondstar
Pairing(s): Derek/Stiles, background Scott/Kira
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 31,346
Content/Warnings: magic!stiles, intercrural sex, implied bottom!stiles
Summary: In order to stop a new onslaught of nightmares from plaguing him, Stiles decides to become an emissary. No longer defenseless, he begins to realize that not everything is as it seems.
Excellent 3b compliant fic that explores Stiles as an emissary-in-training. Loved the relatively easy and uncomplicated relationship between Stiles and Derek in this one and the super hot sex! I thought the emissary magic was really interesting and I really enjoyed the plot.

Title: Kiss Me and Fall Asleep
Author: favicon KuriKuri
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek, brief explicit Ethan/Stiles, background Scott/Allison, Erica/Boyd, Braeden/Laura, implied Ethan/Danny, Aiden/Lydia
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 57,284
Warnings: AU: Werewolves Exist, AU: Hollywood, actor!derek, actor!stiles, friends with benefits, magic!stiles, bottom!stiles, sex toys, light D/s, shower!sex, rough sex, secret relationship, knotting, mild homophobia, hale family lives, no hale fire
Summary: Stiles wants to say he’s like Rogue from X-Men, but really he’s more of a reverse Sleeping Beauty.
(Or: In which Stiles is a cursed A-list actor who can't articulate the feelings he may or may not have for his costar, Derek Hale.)
Fabulous Actor AU with a supernatural twist! Loved the boys' relationship here and their evolution from fuckbuddies to more. The sex was crazy freaking hot and the blending of the supernatural and Hollywood worlds was wonderfully done.

Title: Wulfhleoþu
Author: favicon Circe6
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek, background Allison/Lydia, Scott/Kira, Erica/Boyd
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 67,400
Warnings: AU: Fantasy, magic!stiles, slavery, bottom!stiles, outdoor!sex, wall!sex
Summary: The pack go up against a murderous group of immortal druids, armed with a plan and the full moon on their side. One betrayal and five years later, Beacon Hills is just a memory, werewolves just a nightmare and their old identities long forgotten. The warring world of Draobssehc has no time for half forgotten echoes of the past. Here, the powerful Kings and Queens rule, the Knights campaign in battle and the Mages cast their spells.
A tale of losing yourself and finding someone else.
So this is going in the canon section because it is canon compliant, but a lot of the fic isn't...it makes sense when you read it. But I loved how you get the best of an AU and a canon-based fic. I thought the Druid dream and the fighting kingdoms was so interesting and surprisingly easy to follow. The Allison/Derek friendship was wonderful and I adored the Allydia hints. Not to mention the fabulous relationship between Derek and Stiles and the unbelievably hot sex! Such a brilliant read.

Title: Within His Power
Author: favicon NoBezel
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek, background Scott/Allison, Lydia/Jackson
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 68,927
Warnings: AU: Werewolves Exist, AU: Future, AU: Sci-Fi, werewolves are known, first time, bottom!stiles, sex toys, rimming, knotting, marking, biting, dub-con, heat cycles, underage, Teen Wolf Big Bang 2013
Summary: The first day of Stiles' senior year, Derek Hale is at his school. Derek Hale, brother of Governor Laura Hale, and the quintessential LP—a marvel of genetic, and cybernetic, engineering. There is only one reason an LP of Derek's age and status comes to a high school like Hale Prep: mate hunting.
Hyperactive, unsequenced, anti-Bite, teen boys do not become arm candy of the rich and wolfy. Stiles knows he has no chance; he knows he doesn't want one. But when Derek Hale declares his intent to make Stiles his mate, the vow he makes to Stiles privately isn't one of love; it's one of power, money, and influence. Privileges the unsequenced don't dream of in Stiles' world. It's more than Stiles can resist.
But that doesn't mean he can't try.
Very interesting and intricate AU. I thought the world building was excellent, and I really enjoyed how all the canon characters were incorporated. It definitely gets a bit angsty and I would have liked a bit more resolution (the last chapter felt a bit rushed and after the angst fest of the last several chapters, the ending felt a bit unsatisfying), but overall I really enjoyed enjoyed the story.
