Rectober #14: Teen Wolf Fic Recs  
I was able to read some quality Teen Wolf fic this month off of my to-read list, and it made me very happy! (I also read some not-so-quality fic that I had bookmarked, and is there anything more disaapointing than bookmarking a long!fic for later, not getting around to it for months, then finally settling in for what your sure will be a hit, only to have to back button a quarter of the way through because you just CANNOT anymore? But I digress.) Here are some of my favorites that I read this month.

[Teen Wolf: Derek/Stiles]Title: The Weathered Shell
Author: favicon trilliath
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 14,356
Warnings: AU: Werewolves Exist, selkie!stiles
Summary: The young man is standing with an arm casually thrown up to lean against the door frame, displaying his bare torso to advantage, his powerful swimmer's shoulders and lean body pale with moonlight. His cocky grin, however, is fading quickly into a look of shock and confusion. Other than a pelt shaped into a sloppy kilt, his legs are bare too, despite the chill winds coming in off the ocean.
"You're not a girl," he says in a gently lilting accent that's like an odd blend of all the coastal voices Derek's ever heard, squinting at Derek like his eyes might somehow be deceiving him.
Unlikely, given his dark beard and broad, well-muscled shoulders, let alone what he's got under his kilt.
Really beautiful fic. I loved the gentleness here, the beautiful melancholic undertone throughout the fic. Selkie!Stiles is wonderful, and I really enjoyed him coming to terms with his bisexuality. Gorgeously written, and a truly lovely and poignant connection between Stiles and Derek.

Title: This Kind of Luxe
Author: favicon horchatita394, favicon weathervaanes, & favicon wishingonalightningbolt
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek, brief mention of past Stiles/OFC
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 15,117
Warnings: AU: Human, AU: Royalty, hale family lives, no hale fire, firstson!stiles, prince!derek, switching, first time, bottom!derek, bottom!stiles
Summary: As they have for almost every US President since the 1910s, the Prime Minister and the royal head of their country pay a visit to the United States after inauguration. Which is why, when President Jonathan Stilinski is elected into office, Queen Talia Hale of Norland plans their trip.
Such an adorable fic! I'm always a big fan of firstson!Stiles and prince!Derek and getting them both in one fic was beyond awesome! Super lovely romance here, and just a fun, lovely read.

Title: The Boy and the Beast
Author: favicon Dira Sudis
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek, background Scott/Allison, past Derek/Kate
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 118,749
Content/Warnings: AU: Werewolves Exist, wolf!derek
Summary: In which events in Beacon Hills go rather differently from the start, and a Beauty and the Beast (ish) story ensues. (Scott is not a teacup and no one sings about their feelings.)
This was a wonderful, slow burn fic, sort of a retelling of Canon. There's wolf!Derek and curses and dream sharing, and lots of wonderful, gentle pining. I just adored everybody here, and how all of the relationships are portrayed. Derek and Stiles were amazing, and their connection was just great. I also particularly enjoyed Derk and Scott's relationship here. It's like how it could have been in canon if they'd had a different start and Scott had more of a choice in the bite. Just an awesome read.


[Teen Wolf: Scott/Stiles]Title: 5 Reasons Stiles Stilinski is a Horrible Roommate
Author: faviconKuriKuri
Pairing(s): Scott/Stiles
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 4,072
Content/Warnings: sex toys
Summary: 1. He’s bad about remembering to do laundry.
2. He's loud.
3. He never empties the dishwasher.
4. He has no sense of personal space.
5. He doesn't actually want to be Scott's roommate.
Really adorable fic with mutual pining an excellent characterizations. I can totally see their relationship coming about like this.
