I've actually never followed an exchange fest like this: where the fics aren't released over the course of a few weeks, but all introduced at once. It was a different experience picking through all 60 works and slowly working my way through the ones that caught my eye. To be honest, it felt a little overwhelming, especially since I am following so many different fests this year, and it seemed like like, as a result, I didn't end up reading as many of the fics as I would have if they were posted slowly. But I don't know if that is actually true, or just a weird perception.
Anyway, I digress. The point is, a few of my favorite Stiles/Derek fics from the fest are below, but you should check out the Ao3 collection, because there are a whole lot more fics to look through!

Summary: What Scott and Danny didn’t realize was that Stiles had purposefully drawn that straw. Everyone underestimated the parents. But Stiles knew how to use them. Plus, he was always good with underdogs.
Future fic where the pack+parents play paintball. Cute and fluffy with some sexy times at the end. :)
Title: (My Heart Told My Head) This Time No

Rating: Hard R

Notes: first time, tw holidays fest 2013
Summary: Post and beam, spruce and pine; a little house in the woods; a new start.
This was so lovely. Derek comes back and basically takes a step back from the supernatural shenanigans and builds himself a house. He become friends with the Sheriff, and makes up with Isaac, and Stiles worms his way into his house and life. Just a super sweet fic.

Summary: When the Pack is attacked by an enemy Pack, Stiles and Derek end up on the run, in a stolen car, and spend the night in a crappy motel.
Fantastic future fic with an alive Erica and Boyd and a returned Jackson! I loved Derek and Stiles' relationship and the pack dynamics.
