Werewolf AU Recs: >30,000 Words
Title: The Well of Living Waters
Word Count: 30,322
Warnings: AU: Werewolves Exist, AU: Royalty, MPREG, arranged marriage, harlequin, first time, rimming, bottom!stiles, king!derek, threats of non-con
Summary: King Derek takes a consort.
Not normally a huge fan of MPREG but it works for me in this fic and I loved this universe.
Title: The Importance of Turning Around Three Times Before Lying Down
Word Count: 31,661
Warnings: AU: Werewolves Exist, wolf!derek, first time, laura lives
Summary: It’s like this dog has walked out of all of Stiles’ childhood dreams and into the real world just because Stiles wanted it hard enough. He is the most awesome dog ever, and he and Stiles have a bond. A deep, unbreakable bond because this animal is his soul mate, obviously. Now he just has to convince the dog of that.
Really wonderful fic with Stiles finding wolf!derek and deciding that he is his doggy soulmate. Lovely evolution of feelings and an enjoyable read all around. :)
Title: Festival of Red Series
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek, Allison/Scott, Jackson/Danny, Peter/Lydia
Rating: Hard R
Word Count: 32,156
Warnings: AU: Werewolves Exist, werewolves are known, first time, hale family lives, MPREG, bride hunting, mating run, mild dub-con, magic, spark!stiles, bottom!stiles
Summary: The good and the bad of getting Caught this year included not having to do it again and the bad was he’d have a werewolf mate for the rest of his life. Stiles is seventeen. He has a lot of life to live. Unless his wolfy mate has no sense of humor or a temper. Those with no sense of humor and tempers tended to hate Stiles the most and wouldn’t that suck? Being tied to someone for the rest of his life who hates him. That actually sounds like his type of luck. // The sequel to the bride-hunting fic that involves moving, emancipation, a family feud, a baby shower, a list of reasons and a magic cat lady. // The third installment to the bride hunting fic that now involves pregnancy then babies, adult looking responsibilities, epic fails and proof no one picks their family.
This was funny and sweet.
Title: Deck the Hales with Mistletoe and Holly
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek, past Derek/Kate, background Allison/Scott, Lydia/Jackson
Word Count: 32,827
Warnings: AU: Werewolves Exist, AU: University, fake/pretend relationship, laura lives, holiday!fic
Summary: The one where Stiles manages to somehow imply that he might be dating his exceedingly hot TA for freshman lit, and ends up inviting him home for the holidays (along with his two crazy sisters) and really hopes that Lydia doesn't find out he was lying and kill him before maybe he can make it so he's not lying after all...
Awesome fake/pretend relationship holiday!fic. Loved the werewolf elements in this one and the sizzling tension between Derek and Stiles was fabulous.
Title: Derek Hale: Werewolf Cop Series (2 Fics)
Artist: maichan [link to art]
Word Count: 35,695
Warnings: AU: Werewolves Exist, cop!derek, laura lives, cop!stiles, switching, rimming
Summary: Stiles is yanked up to his feet so fast that his world spins and his shoulder aches and he’s a second from screaming police brutality! when he gets a good look at the cop’s face. Holy shit. Stiles was just tackled to the ground by a fucking underwear model with a badge. // It is 100% against Beacon Hills Sheriff’s Office policy to allow two officers engaged in a romantic relationship to be partners. It is also 100% accurate that no one else on the force can last more than three days in a car with Stiles without begging for either a ball gag or the sweet release of death.
In this AU verse, Stiles' mom is alive and the Sheriff was killed in the line of duty. In the first one, Stiles' turns into a bit of a delinquent because of it, and Deputy Derek saves him from himself. In the sequel they are cop partners dealing with their relationship and the Kate of it all. Super freaking hot and their relationship is lovely.
Title: A Mating Moon
Word Count: 37,353
Warnings: AU: Werewolves Exist, AU: Sex Work, rentboy!stiles, switching, bottom!stiles, bottom!derek, laura lives, underage, rimming, shower!sex
Summary: “Hey, Scott, so, I uh, there’s this amazingly hot guy and I’m uh, gonna spend the weekend with him but, you know, just to be careful, I’m sending you his picture, so if by some terrible chance my bloated corpse shows up sometime Monday, just, y’know pass this along to the authorities.” He pauses. “Uh. Kidding?” and then hangs up with a rush of air.
“That is the worst voicemail in the history of voicemails,” Derek says.
Super hot werewolf AU with Stiles turning tricks to help cover his father's medical bills and a Derek who catches his scent and is instantly captivated. Loved their dynamic here and the whole thing was wonderfully written and crazy sexy.
Title: lay your armour down
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek, minor Stiles/Heather
Word Count: 37,626
Warnings: AU: Werewolves Exist, werewolves are known, cop!derek, cop!stiles, bottom!stiles
Summary: The secret agent AU nobody asked for.
Fun and sexy Secret Agent AU! Loved the dynamic and the slight animosity and banter here with Stiles being CIA and Derek being NSA. Great read.
Title: Flint & Tinder
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek, Scott/Allison, Erica/Boyd
Word Count: 43,593
Warnings: AU: Werewolves Exist, magic!stiles, cop!derek, laura lives, office!sex, bottom!stiles
Summary: Casting spells, chasing monsters, wooing your coworkers and fucking them in their offices - it's all in a day's work for Stiles Stilinski.
I have a soft spot for cop AU's and this fic had an interesting take of Stiles and Derek. Good characterizations and some hot sex scenes.
Title: This Started As Only Make Believe
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek, Derek/Jennifer
Word Count: 44,197
Content/Warnings: AU: Werewolves Exist, dad!derek, teacher!stiles
Summary: Derek is trying (and failing) to juggle his career, coach lacrosse, and raise his 5 year old werewolf daughter. When he adds his bitter ex-wife and his daughter's slight attachment to him, Derek knows he doesn't have any time for a life of his own - and definitely no time for the super cute daycare teacher.
I do love me some dad!Derek, especially when partnered with awesome teacher!Stiles. :D Rose as Derek's daughter was too adorable, and I really loved the slow development of Stiles and Derek's relationship. Jennifer as the complicated, bitter ex of Derek's added for an interesting twist.
♥ Title: Be My Animal
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek, background Erica/Boyd, Danny/Ethan, Cora/Lydia
Word Count: 44,887
Warnings: AU: Werewolves Exist, AU: Future, AU: Space, AU: Sci-Fi, werewolves are known, first time, bottom!stiles
Summary: Two genetically advanced species, created by humankind to further their own hunger for war and conquest. Dolls and Ferals are about as different breeds as you can get, however mandatory military partnerships force the two to work together on hostile missions.
The Sierra Zulu mission will see Allison, Stiles, Lydia and Danny make the journey from their home of the Doll base to the Feral headquarters for official 'partnering'. As far as the Dolls are concerned, their bestial counterparts are nothing more than dogs. As for the Ferals, it's not exactly ideal being assigned to work with a stuck up 'toy' for the rest of their lives.
Jesus Christ this fic was unbelievably awesome. Such a fascinating and wonderfully built AU. I loved the idea of the dolls and ferals and how they were all sorted and paired was perfect. The alternating POVs between Stiles and Allison work really well and their friendship was really wonderful. Derek's definitely a dick at first but he comes around so nicely and I loved the dynamic between him and Stiles. And the sex was super hot!
Title: Where There's Sacrifice
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek, Scott/Allison, Danny/Isaac
Word Count: 45,028
Warnings: AU: Werewolves Exist, werewolves are known, knotting, mates, hale family lives, no hale fire, bottom!stiles
Summary: Every ten years, someone from Stiles Stilinski's village is offered as tribute to a neighboring clan of werewolves. Every ten years someone is taken into the woods and is never heard from again. No one knows what happens to them, where they go, or what becomes of them.
When the wolves come early one year and his community struggles to select a tribute in the time allotted Stiles does something foolish. Brave, but very, very foolish.
He volunteers as tribute.
I have kind of a thing for these type of AU's where Stiles is claimed by Derek and they have to figure out the relationship from there. This one was fun and hot!
♥ Title: Our Lives Are Changing Lanes
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek, Allison/Scott, past Derek/Kate
Word Count: 47,531
Warnings: AU: Werewolves Exist, werewolves are known, cop!stiles, kid!fic, mechanic!derek, laura lives, bottom!derek, implied switching
Summary: There's a lot of screaming going on inside the first house Stiles visits. He isn't really worried, because it sounds like kids, but then the door opens and hi, says his dick, because the dude in front of him is gorgeous, built like a god with a face like thunder. Stiles wants to lick that solid jaw line. Hold the fuck on, says his cop brain, because the dude's got kids hanging all over him; one's on his back, skinny legs looped around his waist, and another two hanging off one arm, toes barely brushing the ground. There's a tubby toddler clinging to his leg like a koala, and he's got a baby tucked into the crook of the one arm that doesn’t have kids hanging off it. Stiles' mouth drops open.
Well it is by grimm, so you know it is fantastically written, and the storyline is great. Low-levels of angst, but not overly fluffy, this fic feels very mature, with a great relationship development between Stiles and Derek, especially taking into account Derek's kid and his past with Kate. And some great chemistry and super hot sex! :)
Title: All Stirred Up
Author: marguerite_26 & jsea
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek, Kira/Scott, Lydia/Jordan, implied Boyd/Erica
Word Count: 49,430
Warnings: AU: Werewolves Exist, AU: Coffee Shop, laura lives, cop!derek, barista!stiles, bottom!stiles, magic!stiles, rough sex
Summary: Derek's first duty as a new deputy is the early morning coffee run to The Leaky Carafe, and it's not long before he discovers that the quirky barista has a knack for making the perfect drink. Every time. Even before you order. But is it intuition, luck or magic that has all Stiles' customers leaving happy?
Oh this was just such a fun AU. I really love how the authors interpreted the tropes and themes and canon elements here, but gave them a fresh twist. Fabulous connection between Stiles and Derek and just generally a super enjoyable read.
Title: Lead You Home Again
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek, Allison/Scott, Boyd/Erica, Derek/Kate
Word Count: 49,962
Warnings: AU: Werewolves Exist, laura lives, first time, bottom!stiles, teen wolf reverse bang 2014
Summary: The first time Derek meets Stiles, the kid’s brown eyes are wide, and he’s staring up at him with a mischievous grin as he tugs at the arm of Derek’s first ever Batman figure like he’s trying to separate it from Batman’s body.
An alternate take on Teen Wolf, wherein Stiles and Derek are childhood friends, and things unfold from there.
Fun fic with Stiles and Derek growing up together and how that could have changed things. Their relationship in this is wonderful and the sex was hot!
♥ Title: Pack Up; Don't Stray
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek, Scott/Allison, past Derek/Kate
Word Count: 55,220
Warnings: AU: Werewolves Exist, AU: Slavery, AU: Dystopia, werewolves are known, pets, switching, scenting, collars, marking, cop!Stiles
Summary: AU – Werewolves are an enslaved underclass, collared and tagged by human masters. Detective Stilinksi’s on duty the night they bring in an untagged stray.
I can really go either way with slave fics, but this one was so good. It is such an intricate world and the author really delves into the issue with it. Loved the relationship between Derek and Stiles.
Title: Caged Humanity
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek, Scott/Allison, Lydia/Jackson, Erica/Boyd, Peter/Isaac
Word Count: 55,286
Warnings: AU: Werewolves Exist, pets, light BDSM, knotting, dub-con, light non-con elements, bottom!stiles
Summary: An AU where werewolves are given humans as pets called Companions, and a very begrudging Stiles is taken in by Derek Hale, much to both their displeasure. And then pleasure. Very, very sexual pleasure.
Very intricate and thought-provoking AU with some smoking hot sex.
Title: Kiss Me and Fall Asleep
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek, brief explicit Ethan/Stiles, background Scott/Allison, Erica/Boyd, Braeden/Laura, implied Ethan/Danny, Aiden/Lydia
Word Count: 57,284

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: Shutterbug and Planning is Everything
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek, background Scott/Allison, Erica/Boyd, Lydia/Jackson, Laura/OMC, past Derek/Kate
Word Count: 58,794
Warnings: AU: Werewolves Exist, werewolves are known, AU: Modeling, Laura Lives, Neckz 'N Throats, model!stiles, photographer!derek, barebacking, referenced knotting, bottom!stiles
Summary: Derek Hale is the photographer for the family-run magazine 'NECKZ 'n THROATS', a periodical aimed solely at the werewolf demographic. When the model for their monthly bails out, the staff are hard-pressed to find someone else to photograph at the last minute.
Stiles Stilinski is a college student, scraping by on odd jobs to pay for his education fees. When his long-time friend Lydia finds him a one-off gig at a photo-shoot, he figures it couldn't hurt.
As contrary as their natures appear to be, Derek finds the most fascinating piece of art at the end of his lens. //
A short sequel to 'Shutterbug'.
Derek has a plan, and it's simple, but it's going to work. But then things get in the way, like ninja peanuts, Care Bear movies and nap times.
He just can't get a break, can he?
This was a fun and sexy AU. I love the Neckz 'n Throats verse and this was a great addition! And the sequel is beyond lovely and sweet.
Title: Little Wild Animal
Word Count: 61,036
Warnings: AU: Werewolves Exist, feral!stiles, first time, bottom!stiles, no hale fire, hale family lives, mates
Summary: Derek Hale finds a feral human on his pack's property.
Humans are supposed to be extinct.
But then, Stiles is full of surprises.
Oh, this fic was just GORGEOUS! Beautifully written and the way things developed between Stiles and Derek was actual perfection. I was on the edge of my seat trying to figure out how the author would resolve everything, and they did not disappoint! There are also a few sequels that feature some other pairings that make an appearance in this fic.
Title: We Prefer Good Love to Gold
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek, past Stiles/Heather, Stiles/Danny, Derek/Kate, Derek/Paige, Derek/Jennifer, background Erica/Lydia
Word Count: 63,371
Warnings: AU: Werewolves Exist, AU: Reality Show, werewolves are known, bottom!stiles, no hale fire, hale family lives, shared bed, implied switching
Summary: This week on Millionaire Matchmaker: Supernatural Edition - Derek Hale, a thirty-year-old millionaire venture capitalist and beta werewolf, finally gives into his sisters’ pressures to start dating again and reluctantly agrees to use the services of a supernatural matchmaker. Stiles Stilinski, at age twenty-five, just sold his start-up to Google for undisclosed millions, and ends up on a reality dating show when his true alpha best friend tries to help him get over his broken heart.
The last thing anyone expects is for the two eligible bachelors to fall in love with each other behind the scenes.
Really awesome dating show AU with Derek and Stiles trying to find love through a matchmaker and ending up falling for one another instead. I loved the build of their relationship here.
♥ Title: A Wildness Warily Awakened
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek, Scott/Allison, Lydia/Jackson
Word Count: 64,511
Warnings: AU: Werewolves Exist, AU: Future, AU: Zombies, AU: Space, AU: Sci-Fi, labrat!stiles, Teen Wolf Big Bang 2012
Summary: Derek Hale and his Specialized Combat Agents Unit are assigned to B-CON Base, a research facility in the heart of the lone human settlement on planet Cali. Normally, such an isolated place would not warrant the presence of Specs - the Infection is raging across the known galaxy, after all, and zombies don’t kill themselves (unless there are no tastier alternatives at hand) - but Derek is on a private hunt for his sister. He soon discovers that the rest of his team have ties to the place as well.
It’s all just coincidence, of course. (No matter what Stiles bleats on about those.)
This fic takes place in the future where there is space travel and different planets. And zombies. But this isn't your typical zombie fic. Interesting take on the future/apocalypse-type fics and I loved the way all the characters fit in. And the sex here way so freaking hot. Plus, artwork!
Title: Within His Power
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek, background Scott/Allison, Lydia/Jackson
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, underage, heat cycles, dub-con, biting, 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.
Title: When They Bloomed Series (2 Fics)
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek, Scott/Allison, Erica/Boyd, Lydia/Jackson, past Derek/Kate
Word Count: 70,661
Warnings: AU: Werewolves Exist, switching, florist!stiles, marriage!fic
Summary: Derek is the alpha of a pack of young wolves who are busy finding babysitters, planning holidays, holding jobs and clinging to normalcy. When Peter pitches the idea to plant flowers on the Hale property, Derek doesn't quite take him seriously. That is until he walks into the little floral shop off 1st and Oakheart and meets the strange young man from out of town, Stiles Stilinski. // After Derek meets Stiles Stilinski, the owner of a small floral shop called Apothecary, a romance between them blooms into something the alpha had never expected. With the help of his pack and loved ones Derek finds the tools necessary to let go of his past and embrace a new life. Three years later he is still happily tangled in the arms of the strange young florist but does not expect to be planning his wedding and to kick-start the beginning of the rest of his life with a ring, a date, and a very excited pack of betas. The sequel to petals in my pocket
This is a really beautiful series about Derek learning to forgive himself and let the past go and, of course, Stiles is a huge part of that. I love all of the relationships here, the friendship between Erica and Derek, and the relationship between Stiles and Derek. And the different scents woven throughout are a really beautiful sort of insight into Derek's state of mind. And the second fic is lovely happy times.
Title: Professional. Assholes. Competent. Killers. Series (2 Fics)
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek, background Isaac/Scott, Erica/Boyd, Allison/Lydia, Danny/Jackson, Melissa/Sheriff, past Allison/Scott
Word Count: 72,944
Warnings: AU: Werewolves Exist, AU: Assassins, switching, bottom!derek, bottom!stiles, laura lives, mates, knotting
Summary: Stiles' finger slides over the trigger in a light, casual caress. “Sorry, dude,” he mutters and flicks off the safety.
Or the one where Stiles is a expert sniper working for an assassin company and he's really fucking good at it.
Seriously sexy and awesome assassins AU. Loved their dynamic here and the whole thing was super fun!
Title: The Broken Radio is Playing Suicide
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek, Scott/Allison, past Erica/Boyd, past Derek/Kate
Word Count: 73,415
Warnings: AU: Werewolves Exist, werewolves are known, established relationship, bottom!stiles, wolf!derek, road trip
Summary: Stiles only wishes they could actually be safe. They haven’t been for nine months now.
Really beautifully written AU. This fic alternates the current on-the-run timeline with flashbacks to how Derek and Stiles met and got themselves into the situation. Their relationship is so fantastic and real and I thought the plot managed to utilize the canon characters and personalities in a wonderfully unique way.
Title: Stand Fast in Your Enchantments
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek, Scott/Allison, past Stiles/Lydia, past Derek/Kate
Word Count: 76,956
Warnings: AU: Werewolves Exist, magic!stiles, switching, feral!derek, barebacking, magical tattoos, rimming
Summary: "Stiles knew damn well what a pissed-off wolf sounded like, and every hair on the back of his neck was telling him that somewhere in this room was a very pissed-off werewolf." An AU in which Derek is feral, Stiles is magical, and they eat a lot of fast food.
This fic is an amazing, slightly angst-filled read. Stiles and Derek are kidnapped and weakened and held hostage for several weeks. They get to know each other and their relationship really develops. But, surprisingly, the angstier parts happen after they escape and have to learn how to make their relationship work in the real world. Well-written, captivating, and believable.
♥ Title: Gravity's Got Nothing On You
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek, Scott/Allison
Word Count: 83,980
Warnings: AU; Werewolves Exist, Hale family lives, fake/pretend relationship, magic, no hale fire, bottom!stiles
Summary: The one where the Hale fire never happened, Laura is a nosy sister, Derek is desperate, and Stiles is the only one that can help.
This was freaking fantastic. The fake relationship trope was so well done and the alternate universe was believable and the UST was great, even better when it was resolved! :)
Title: One Life Stand
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek, background Allison/Scott
Word Count: 84,278
Warnings: AU: Werewolves Exist, AU: University, rentboy!stiles, ceo!derek, bottom!stiles, laura lives, rimming, age difference
Summary: Stiles is used to selling himself to make ends meet. But it's getting harder to keep those ends meeting, and there's only so much of Stiles to go around. Until a too-fancy car shows up in his neighborhood, and he meets Derek Hale.
All Derek wants is Stiles's time, someone to stay on his arm for events and smile for the cameras. It's the easiest job Stiles has ever had, the best-paying one he's ever had, and he's more than happy to sign up.
Derek is everything and nothing Stiles expects him to be, with his tailored suits, sharp mind and his quiet way of caring. But it's just a job and Stiles never meant to fall in love.
Seriously fabulous AU with Derek paying Stiles for his company, but of course, feelings develop and then ALL THE SEX. I loved how things evolved between them and the whole fic was a really wonderful and satisfying read.
Title: Where You Still Remember Dreaming
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek, background Boyd/Erica
Word Count: 95,612
Warnings: AU: Werewolves Exist, magic!stiles, implied switching, bottom!stiles, long-distance relationship, past character death
Summary: “What’s your name? I can’t keep calling you Balto.”
Derek raises an eyebrow. That isn’t his real name. There’s no way. But now he thinks about it, he has a vague memory of someone, probably Uncle Peter, telling him that with the fae, names have power. “I’m Miguel,” he says.
“Are you trying to tell me your real name is Stiles?”
Stiles runs his tongue across his teeth and considers Derek carefully. “Fair enough,” he says, “Miguel it is.”
Grabbing his groceries and pocketing the change, Derek turns to leave; he’s nearly at the door when Stiles calls out, “By the way, Miguel, if you’re interested, it’s two for one on bags of kibble at the pet store down the street.”
Derek doesn’t look back, doesn’t hesitate, just raises a hand and flips him off on the way out.
Really wonderful Au with a gorgeous build and some fabulous characterizations. The whole thing just flew by!
Title: Heart as Black as Night
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek, Allison/Lydia, Isaac/Scott, Boyd/Cora, Chris/Erica, Derek/OMC, past Derek/Kate
Word Count: 97,724
Warnings: AU: Werewolves Exist, AU: 1920's, werewolves exist, first time, bootlegger!derek, intercrural sex, rimming, felching, bottom!stiles
Summary: In 1924, Stiles stumbles into one of the many speakeasies in New York, where he meets Cora, a glamorous jazz singer, and her brother Derek, a bootlegger.
This fic is super well-written and such an interesting and well-crafted AU. There is so much to play with in terms of culture and slang etx. in the 20's, and the world is very believable. It has some darker themes and it definitely isn't fluffy, but the characterizations are great and there is a happy/hopeful ending.
Title: Sinking Ships
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek, background Allison/Scott
Word Count: 106,646
Warnings: AU: Werewolves Exist, AU: Dystopia, sort of slave!fic, arranged marriage, werewolves are known. first time, laura lives, hale family lives, no hale fire, bottom!stiles, biting, marking
Summary: Derek Hale has never met a human before.
Throughout his life, he's probably encountered, give or take, a hundred or so. A mere hundred human beings in his twenty-three years walking around on earth, compared to the millions of weres he's seen. And, even then, encountered them he might have, but met? Not even close.
He's had his dry cleaning handed off to him by a mousy looking human girl in a shirt three sizes too big for her with huge eyes and shaking hands while a beta werewolf yelled at her in the background for being too skittish (wonder why that could possibly be), he's walked past teenage humans cleaning windows and sweeping pebbles off of sidewalks, he's had the door opened up for him by older humans in pristine uniforms outside of restaurants – but never, never once, has he stuck his hand out to a human and said hi, my name is...
He could probably count on one hand the number of times he's even been made aware that a human within a hundred feet of him even had a name.
Really interesting fic with Werewolves as a ruling class, and Talia, who's up for election, arranging a marriage between Derek and Stiles to help bolster her campaign. The build between Stiles and Derek was really wonderful, and the world building was great. I could read another 100k of the aftermath. :D
Title: The Boy and the Beast
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek, background Scott/Allison, past Derek/Kate
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.
Title: What I Did On My Summer Vacation
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek, background Scott/Allison, Erica/Boyd
Word Count: 118,749
Content/Warnings: AU: Werewolves Exist, magic!stiles, laura lives, wolf!derek
Summary: There's something weird about Beacon Hills that Stiles can't quite put his finger on. The way everyone in town knows his name the day he arrives. The way they insist the melancholic howling that echoes through the forest every night is just a dog. The way his dad denies getting a dog, even though Stiles comes home to find one sprawled across his bed, some big black thing whose eyes gleam red in the right light. The way that massive oak tree out in the woods vibrates under his touch, pulsing with sickly life.
There's something weird going on in this town, and Stiles is determined to get to the bottom of it.
Really fabulous AU with Beacon Hills as an essentially entirely supernatural town, and Stiles as the outsider who moves there. It's a very slow build Sterek, but it doesn't feel slow. The story is gentle but engaging, and I was totally sucked into this fantastic verse. Loved how the characters are incorporated here, and the relationship between Stiles and Derek is really amazing.
Title: His Only Defense
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek, Scott/Allison, Jackson/Danny
Word Count: 122,832
Warnings: AU: Werewolves Exist, heat cycle, claiming, marking, scenting, first time, underage, barebacking, knotting, dub-con, bottom!stiles
Summary: Stiles had just accidentally challenged an alpha.
Oh God and Scott had just stood by and let him do it. He was the worst best friend ever. Stiles was going to kill him. Except oh right the alpha was going to kill him first. Like beyond dead, ripped into tiny little pieces dead. So far dead that his dad would not be able to identify him, dead.
This was beautifully written. The plot was interesting and highlighted the characters beautifully and the development of Stiles and Derek's relationship was lovely. This fic is written from Stiles point of view and has a very distinctive voice. I like that Stiles isn't some damsel and doesn't have self-confidence issues and isn't worried about not being good enough. It's a less broken Stiles than a lot of fics I've read.
Title: Stiles's Story Time
Word Count: 125,227
Warnings: AU: Werewolves Exist, mates, author!derek, kid!fic, librarian!stiles, dad!derek, bottom!stiles
Summary: Where Stiles is a librarian who is in charge of the kids' reading hour and such. And Derek is 6-year-old Scott's adoptive dad. And Stiles has his own take on Stories and Scott loves wolves and Derek tries not to admit that he likes the way Stiles's face (ass) looks in those glasses (jeans).
Or something like that.
Derek takes Scott in after Laura dies and meets Stiles at story hour. Each chapter has a different fairy-tale inspired story to go along with the fic. I love the relationship development and how werewolves and hunters are worked into the story.

Summary: This is the story of werewolf Derek Hale and human Stiles Stilinski: two people who grew up in the same town but completely different worlds, their realities split by the war between men and wolves.
Years later when Derek returns to Beacon Hills, he does it as Alpha of a military pack on a mission to capture those responsible for the region’s resistance. With his main objective, Sheriff Stilinski, out of sight, he settles for the next best thing: his son, Stiles.
Neither of them suspects they’ll need to trust each other if they want to make it out this alive.
This fic was so good! Long and well-written and angsty and wonderful. So clever how canon details and events were reworked into this story, and a really fabulously written Derek and Stiles.
