*NEW: 10/7*

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: Come Fly With Me (Or Don't)
Author: favicon stilinskisparkles
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek, background Scott/Allison, implied Lydia/Boyd
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 15,325
Warnings: AU: Human, bottom!stiles
Summary: Stiles is overworked and stressed out when his flight home gets delayed due to copious amounts of snow. He finds entertainment with one Derek Hale, whom he hasn't seen since high school but really doesn't mind getting reacquainted with. Especially when it turns out Derek is surprisingly hilarious and will reluctantly play snap with him. And can walk on his hands.
One of the first Human AU's I ever read. I loved this and back then I really wasn't sold on Human AUs, so that should tell you everything right there! :)

Title: Bones Straining Under the Weight
Author: favicon weathervaanes
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek, background Scott/Allison
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 15,645
Warnings: AU: Human, deaf!derek, disability!fic, teacher!stiles, foodblogger!derek, hale family lives, no hale fire, bottom!stiles
Summary: One of Stiles' favorite things about life is Derek Hale's food blog. He never expects to meet the man in person.
This really is a lovely fic. I'm normally not a huge fan of disability!fics, but this was was beautiful and I really loved the connection between Stiles and Derek. Plus Derek's online foodie persona was so amazing.

Title: The One Where They're Forced To Marry In Ye Olden Times
Author: stoney321 | favicon Stoney
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek, past Derek/Kate
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 16,101
Warnings: AU: Human, AU: Historical, falconer!stiles, arranged marriage, forced marriage. marriage!fic, first time, bottom!stiles, mentions of switching
Summary: Due to the destruction of House Hale and the debts incurred in their survival and search for justice, the King (blah blah, make believe world) arranges a marriage between Derek and Stiles, eliminating all debts the Hales may owe. Derek is very unhappy. Stiles is pretty shocked at who he's being matched with, but he's certainly not unhappy. It's pretty clear from the start Derek doesn't share that hope.
Stiles passes the time by hunting with his falcon, Derek broods. Until...
Wonderful characterizations and clever incorporation of canon events. I loved the bit of falconry and the development of Stiles and Derek's relationship was lovely. And a super sexy, happy ending!

Title: Happy Birthday, Mr. Hale Series (3 Fics)
Author: favicon mikkimouse
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 16,273
Warnings: AU: Human, dad!derek, age difference, rimming, light D/s, first time, bottom!stiles, sex toys, table!sex, face-fucking, dirty talk, praise!kink, role play, spanking, desk!sex
Summary: Derek is a single dad celebrating his 30th birthday. Stiles is the college student who babysits for him. Smut ensues.
Loved the D/s dynamic here, and the dirty talk was A+.

Title: Flexible, Friendly, and Adaptable
Author: favicon MsCee
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 16,294
Warnings: AU: Human, teacher!derek, tourguide!stiles
Summary: As a tour guide, Stiles liked to think that he embodied his company’s motto of being flexible, friendly, and adaptable. As a teacher chaperone, Derek Hale’s ethos seemed more along the lines of ‘inflexible, unfriendly, and rigid as hell’. Clearly, they were going to get along swimmingly.
(Wherein Stiles is a tour guide to Derek Hale's 8th grade class, and amidst the drama and chaos that is thirty teenagers on an overnight trip, falls in love with the grumpy teacher. Well, maybe not love, but he certainly entertains a solid number of fantasies about stroking Derek's eyebrows. With his tongue. Is that creepy? Yeah, that is definitely creepy.)
This was cute and funny. The kids were surprisingly nice addition and I loved Stiles and his attempt to "frienduce" Derek.

Title: Missed Deadlines
Author: aerowyn | favicon aerowyn
Artist: mithborien | favicon mithborien
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek, Lydia/Scot, Stiles/Ethan, Matt/Danny, implied past Derek/Kate
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 16,879
Notes: AU: Human, author!stiles, bottom!derek, teen wolf big bang 2013
Summary: Stiles never imagined he’d be 21 and have a three book deal with a decently respected science fiction publisher. He's been trying to find a way to balance writing the second book in the series with finishing his junior year of college. He was doing pretty well, if he did say so himself.
Enter Derek Hale, new junior agent at the Hale and Argent Agency. He’s the brooding, grumpy, extremely sexy literary agent who has been given Stiles’ option because he’s been late on a few deadlines.
Ok, maybe more than just a few...
Fun and believable Human AU. Derek and Stiles are so perfect as a writer and literary agent and their connection is great. And an interesting take on side pairings.

Title: Mail Order Stiles
Author: undeny | favicon Green
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek, past Derek/Kate
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 17,489
Warnings: AU: Human, AU: Western, first time, marriage!fic, farmer!derek, bottom!stiles
Summary: Stiles laughs. “The day I become a mail-order bride is the day I eat my hat.”
“You don’t even wear a hat."
“I’ll buy a hat for the occasion,” Stiles says. “A white one with a veil.”
(Stiles doesn't eat a hat, but that's just because he's too busy with his new husband, his five children, his new husband's ex, and a deadly feud with the neighboring ranch)
Very interesting concept with Farmer Derek and Stiles as his mail order "bride". And all the betas as Derek's adopted children, so cute! Plus, apparently I kind of have a thing for Stiles in a nightshirt.

Title: Camaro '68
Author: favicon ZainClaw
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 17,707
Warnings: AU: Human, off-screen major character death (not Derek or Stiles), road trip, laura lives, bottom!stiles
Summary: In which Stiles is a hitchhiker and Derek a runaway whose paths cross at a gas station in the California desert.
Wonderful fic with Derek fed up with life and running away from all the pressure, and Stiles who's been through a lot and is hitchhiking around. Their connection here is lovely and the dusty landscape and crappy road trip motels really create a beautiful tone and atmosphere. Also, the sex is fantastic. :)

Title: We'll Stay Where We've Gone
Author: secondstar | favicon secondstar
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek, background Scott/Allison and Erica/Boyd
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 20,208
Warnings: AU: Human, friends with benefits, bottom!stiles
Summary: Stiles grew up working at the Renaissance Faire. It was where he felt like he could really be himself, where memories of his mother still walked around with him. Finally, at age 18, he's an adult and the world of the Ren Faire opens up entirely new possibilities.
One being Derek Hale, Knight.
Such a fun and sweet AU with super hot friends with benefits evolving into more! Love the Ren Faire atmosphere, made me really want to go to one! :D

Title: Reach Out
Author: favicon weathervaanes
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek, Scott/Allison
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 20,246
Warnings: AU: Human, AU: University, professor!derek, bottom!derek
Summary: In Which Stiles Falls in Love Twice...With the Same Person
-0-
Stiles sees the flyer on his very last day at Beacon Hills High School. It’s hanging, unassuming, in the hall near the front entrance along with bulletins and other flyers, advertisements, posters for free student concerts, but the fact that the word “sex” is written in a font two times larger than the rest of the page catches his attention.
It’s an advice hotline for a whole range of things, from teenage angst to how to deal with your parents telling you you’re adopted and a whole mess in the middle. Stiles thinks it’s funny, though, that they offer advice on sexuality and sex education. It makes sense on the one hand, since high school sex ed does jack shit for actual learning, but anyone who really wants to know stuff has an infinite source of knowledge right on their phone—the internet.
I love me some university AU's and this one was a great one. I loved the hot line and how that played into the story and of course the classic falling in love with the same person twice trope. Well done.

Title: Triple Shot Pumpkin Spice Latte
Author: favicon coffeeinallcaps
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek, background Scott/Allison
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 20,468
Warnings: AU: Human, AU: University, professor!derek, counselor!stiles, hale family lives
Summary: AU in which guidance counselor Stiles has to deal with all the students crushing on the elusive and infuriating Professor Hale. This was meant to be a light-hearted winter fic, but some emotional angst slipped in here and there. Rated explicit because of graphic sex.
Professor!Derek is kind of a huge kink of mine. No Hale fire means Derek is more well-adjusted and I there were a lot of details in this fic that made it feel very realistic.

Title: Up and Coming
Author: favicon fanhag102
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek, background Scott/Allison, Lydia/Jackson
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 20,710
Warnings: AU: Human, architect!derek, laura lives, elevator!sex
Summary: Stiles and Derek work in the same building and every day ride up in the elevator together.
That is pretty much the extent of their relationship—until one day the elevator breaks down, trapping the two of them inside and maybe forcing them to admit to each other that the attraction is mutual.
Or, the one where Stiles and Derek have sex in an elevator.
Basically exactly what the summary says. Cute and super hot.

*NEW: 9/30*
Title: Your Majesty
Author: favicon grimm
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek, background Lydia/Jackson
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 22,291
Warnings: AU: Human, ceo!derek, camboy!stiles, sex toys, first time, switching, bottom!derek, mostly bottom!stiles
Summary: It wasn’t like he was a pro or whatever, but like any teenage boy he’d spent a lot of time jerking off, and there were a lot of people on the internet that liked watching that sort of thing. And while the idea of doing actual porn - like, porn with another person’s dick in his ass porn - kind of made him uncomfortable, jerking off by himself in front of a camera sounded okay. If you’re good at something, never do it for free, right?
Prostitution-type fics can be a little hit or miss for me, but I really enjoyed this one. I loved how both Stiles and Derek came across here, and I think the potential creepy factor was definitely reduced by giving us both POVs. The sex was hot, and it was sweet watching them get to know each other. Overall a really enjoyable read. :)

Title: Academia AU Series (3 Fics)
Author: favicon KuriKuri
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek, background Ethan/Danny, Sheriff/Melissa, Erica/Boyd
Rating: NC-17

Warnings: AU: Human, AU: University, professor!stiles, professor!derek, sex toys, implied switching, bottom!stiles, classroom!sex, semi public!sex
Summary: In which Stiles is a Biology professor and Derek thinks he's a student.
Super fun University AU with mistaken identities and lots of flirty pining. And then bonus classroom sex! :D

Title: The Sins of My Caretaker
Author: favicon weathervaanes
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek, background Ethan/Danny, Sheriff/Melissa, Erica/Boyd
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 23,163
Warnings: AU: Human, AU: Fusion, Shameless fusion, bottom!stiles, implied bottom!derek
Summary: In which Stiles is the oldest sibling to a fucked up family and it's his job to make sure they don't end up dead, meth addicts, or in juvie. And then Derek crashes into his world and makes everything a little bit more interesting.
I've actually never seen the show, but I didn't feel lost at all. Interesting and clever fusion with lots of hot sex and angst and a happy ending.

Title: Circle Yes or No
Author: shockselectric | favicon blacktofade
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek, background Erica/Boyd
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 23,192
Warnings: AU: Human, student!derek, TA!stiles, bottom!derek, teen wolf holiday exchange fest 2013
Summary: Stiles is a TA for Professor Morrell's class, where Derek happens to be a mature student.
Lovely and interesting concept. And the way the characters were all worked in was wonderful.

Title: I Want to Say All Those Things That would Be Better Unsaid
Author: favicon aeneapsych
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek, past Derek/Kate
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 24,551
Warnings: AU: Human, AU: University, professor!derek, dirty talk, phone sex, switching, talk of sex toys, teacher/student relationship
Summary: Derek is a lonely professor who decides to call a phone sex line.
Stiles is a poor grad student who needs to make a living somehow.
"One night stands were never this good. Hell, his previous relationships were never this good. Derek was so screwed, but right now he didn't care."
So many awesome things in this fic. Professor!derek, teacher/student relationship, so much dirty talk and phone!sex, and sexy switching! Well-written and fun, with minimal angst!

Title: Because I Need You (More Than Just For Tonight)
Author: imthelightening | favicon imthelightening
Artist: marplejuice
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek, background Allison/Isaac/Scott, Lydia/Jackson, Boyd/Erika, past Derek/Kate
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 24,860
Warnings: AU: Human, BDSM, dom!derek, sub!stiles, D/s, flogging, blindfolds, bondage, bottom!stiles, pain play, sterek big bang 2015
Summary: Stiles rarely has the chance to return to Beacon Hills, but some things are worth making time for - and everyone knows Lydia Martin throws the best play parties.
Since he’s been away for a year, he’s missed a few things. Usually, this wouldn’t be a problem, but it suddenly sounds like all of his friends have a new favourite dom he’s never heard about before, and Stiles is feeling left out of the loop.
Who the hell is Derek Hale, and why is Lydia so convinced Stiles has to play with him?
Another great BDSM fic with a Dom Derek and Sub Stiles who feel wonderfully in character. Loved the premise of this fic and the incorporation of the other characters/relationships. The end felt a little rushed, but worth it for the hot sex!

Title: Half Stalled
Author: favicon ifeelflames
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 25,650
Warnings: AU: Human, teacher!stiles, mechanic!derek, laura lives
Summary: Stiles has just moved back home to start his new job; teaching Psychology at Beacon Hills High. Laura Hale is one of his colleagues and soon becomes a good friend. Stiles spends a lot of time at Laura's place, and if Laura just so happens to live with her rather attractive (and somewhat fascinating) younger brother then Stiles isn't going to complain, no siree.
Lovely AU with a slow build and a fantastic Laura Hale.

Title: Hickeys and Handcuffs
Author: favicon Circe6
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek, Scott/Allison, Erica/Boyd
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 25,824
Warnings: AU: Human, cop!derek, rimming, Laura lives
Summary: Stiles graduates and comes back to Beacon Hills to figure out a life plan, what he doesn't plan for is meeting Officer Derek Hale.
Sexy Officer Hale fic. And Stiles being awesome and helping with traumatized Laura.

Title: The Chemistry Between Us
Author: favicon coffeeinallcaps
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek, past Derek/Kate, past very brief Stiles/Ethan
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 26,041
Warnings: AU: Human, AU: University, laura lives, bottom!stiles
Summary: Meeting Derek Hale wasn’t special, or frightening, or any of the other things everyone had made it out to be. It was, actually, pretty much the opposite. Stiles didn’t even realize the guy was Derek Hale until the moment had passed. Derek: the most infamous student at Beacon Hills University. Stiles: the freshman who falls for him anyway. Awkward encounters, concerned friends, and lots of not-so-casual sex ensue. (A ‘fuckbuddies to lovers’ college AU.)
A slightly different take on the Human/Univeristy AU with an infamous Derek and an intrigued Stiles. Love the slight mystery surrounding Derek's character and the evolution of Derek and Stiles' relationship.

Title: The Sun Comes Crashing In Series (3 Fics)
Author: pinetree_kate | favicon pinetreekate
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek, background Erica/Boyd
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 26,543
Content/Warnings: AU: Human, farmer!stiles, writer!derek, bottom!stiles, sex toys
Summary: A story in which Derek makes jam and pines, and Stiles and his dad have a farm.
Oh my goodness this fic was just fabulous. So lovely and sweet and it just left me feeling so happy! Derek and Stiles are totally adorable and watching their relationship evolve was such a joy. Plus the oneshot sequels are just pure joy.

Title: The Jelly to His Doughnut
Author: shockselectric | favicon blacktofade
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 27,569
Warnings: AU: Human, ghost!stiles, first time, bottom!stiles
Summary: When Derek moves into his new house, he doesn't expect it to be haunted by a teenage ghost called Stiles.
Ghost!fic with a interesting twist. I really enjoyed the ghosty effects in this one and it was interesting to see the supernatural element in a Human AU. Well-written with some smoking hot sex.

Title: Barking Bad
Author: favicon lazarusthefirst
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek, background Scott/Isaac
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 27,903
Warnings: AU: Human, writer!stiles, spanking, rimming, laura lives, bottom!stiles
Summary: ‘I wish you wouldn’t call the dogs “customers”, Derek,’ Cora complained, rubbing an acetone-soaked rag over her jeans to get the paint splashes off. ‘It’s not like they pay or anything.’
‘I cut off their nails and Kira pins bows to their collars,’ Derek said, flatly. ‘They pay, alright.’
This was just the sweetest thing. Loved all the adorable dogs and jesus the sex was just crazy hot.

Title: All I Want is the Taste That Your Lips Allow
Author: quidditchkiss | favicon ionsquare
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek, Scott/Allison, Erica/Boyd, Cora/Isaac, Past Derek/Jennifer, Past Stiles/OMC
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 28,125
Warnings: AU: Human, teacher!derek, writer!stiles, fake/pretend relationship, switching, tw fall harvest fest 2013
Summary: It wasn’t supposed to go this far. Derek never thought in pretending to be in a relationship with Stiles Stilinski that he’d actually fall in love with him. In the beginning it was so simple, all the pretending, but slowly, things began to unravel.
This was a great fic with a fake/pretend relationship trope and a great backstory between Stiles and Derek. A good dash of angst, but a super happy, fluffy ending!

Title: We Are So Intimately Arranged
Author: favicon secondstar
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 28,785
Warnings: AU: Human, AU: High School, teacher!derek, student/teacher relationship, first time, phone sex, withdrawal
Summary: A High School AU where there are no werewolves and no hunters. Stiles is getting ready for his senior year when he meets Derek at the coffee shop he works at.
This was a great human AU that displayed the student-teacher relationship in a believable non-skeevy way. Lovely.

Title: Two Bros in the Know
Author: blue_fjords | favicon blue_fjords
Artist: itschristaleigh
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek, Scott/Allison, Erica/Boyd, Danny/Ethan, implied Lydia/Laura, past Derek/Kate, past Lydia/Jackson
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 28,904
Notes: AU: Human, switching, teen wolf big bang 2013
Summary: According to their fansite, Two Bros in the Know (or TBK, as they were referred to by those in the know) grew out of an idea Scott had their senior year of high school.
The truth was much less cinematic: Stiles wanted to impress Lydia Martin, and thought being a famous ghost hunter would do the trick. But it wasn't until the summer before their senior year in college, during an epic tour of farmhouses in the Dakotas, that TBK's popularity went through the roof. Thanks, in large part, to their "rivalry" with Natural, the show featuring real-life siblings Derek and Cora Hale, and their mission to debunk all the same kinds of places TBK said were haunted.
This is the story of how the TBK crew met the Hale crew, featuring a golden bromance, pranks, stress baking, pillow forts, an internet meme, homemade moonshine, ghostly apparitions, dramatic rescues, the plot of a Muppet Show special, and of course, true love.
This fic was too funny! Stiles' commentary was hilarious and all the side character were so spot-on and amazing. And the sex was seriously hot!

Title: Cirque de la Lune
Author: favicon Circe6
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek, Scott/Allison, Chris/Lydia/Laura, implied Danny/Ethan
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 29,664
Warnings: AU: Human, AU: Circus, AU: 1920's, first time, underage, rimming, laura lives, bottom!stiles
Summary: Welcome to the Greatest Show on Earth...
AU by Circe6 so you know it's gonna be well done. The characters are all incorporated so well into circus roles and Stiles is so cute and inexperienced and the relationship with him and Derek is so lovely.
