Rating: Hard R
Word Count: 30,265
Warnings: AU: Human, AU: Hospital, doctor!derek, doctor!stiles
Summary: "We had to splint a girl’s leg in a ditch,” Scott says excitedly.
“Bro, you sound way too happy about that,” Stiles complains, opening up his bag and pulling out a Twinkie.
Derek removes it from his hand silently and replaces it with an apple. Stiles scowls at him for a second then bites into it, regardless. Derek sits back and lets the group discuss the merits of dramatic lifesaving feats for winning over the ladies. Scott is convinced it’ll help impress Allison; Isaac thinks Scott’s a loser. Stiles—
Stiles is falling asleep on Derek’s shoulder.
AU with the whole gang working in a hospital with some serious Derek/Stiles UST. Great characterizations and lots and lots of dialogue.

Summary: Derek sees the guy--all long lines, furtive glances, hungry--leaning against the diner out in the middle of nowhere. Yeah, Derek's hungry, too.
Wonderful human AU with drifter!Derek and hobo!Stiles. Great connection and banter between the two of them, and the whole thing is super hot. The ending was maybe a little rushed, but it was a fun and overall satisfying read.

Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 30,361
Warnings: AU: Human, no hale fire, hale family lives, Laura lives, matchmaking
Summary: Stiles thought the Blind Date With a Book trend was a great way to drum up business for his small bookshop. He definitely thought it was a great idea after the hot guy kept returning and buying more blind dates with books.
Derek didn't know how he kept getting set up on blind dates by his family, or why he kept going on them. The highlight of his night was when the date was over and he could go to the little bookshop in town and buy something to read for the rest of the night. He wanted to read, not date.
Really sweet fic with Stiles as a bookshop owner and Derek as an avid reader who keeps escaping into the bookshop after his blind dates. Loved the development of their relationship in this one. The matchmaking Hales were a little much at times, but overall a really enjoyable fic with an adorable ending.

"What?" Derek growls.

"We're not together," Stiles insists.
Lydia coughs pointedly. "An incident report filed by 87th Precinct Captain Erica Reyes. March twenty-fifth, eight p.m. Came back to the precinct to grab my coat, only to hear Stilinski banging his new boyfriend in the holding cell."
Super freaking sexy. Loved the hot sex, yumy uniforms, and the evolution of their relationship was wonderful.

Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 33,347
Warnings: AU: Human, AU: Historical, prince!stiles, blacksmith!derek, implied bottom!stiles
Summary: Life hasn't been kind to blacksmith Derek Hale. Only a month after he moved to the royal capitol of Beacon and started working as a way to escape his past, the royal family is brutally murdered by Deucalion, one of the king's former generals, and his men. While the oncoming political instability hardly has any impact on him, two weeks later, Derek's quiet and solitary life is nonetheless disturbed by the sudden appearance of three young men who were thought to be dead. One of whom changes his life in ways he could never have imagined; someone who, for the first time in years, makes him experience things he thought he'd never feel again. But then again, life has never been kind to Derek... Will this time be different?
Such a lovely world created here and I love the way all the characters are incorporated. Plus, super hot blacksmith!Derek and adorable prince!stiles and some great UST (which, of course, gets resolved!).

Summary: Derek is nine years old when he discovers the gift that he's been given. A gift that he didn't necessarily ask for. Derek can touch dead things and bring them back to life. But not without consequences and conditions, many of which are heartbreaking.
Many years later, his path crosses that of his childhood sweetheart, Stiles, in very unfortunate circumstances. But now, Derek's gift gives him the power to save Stiles. And damned be the consequences.
This was really wonderful and, surprisingly, had barely any angst. I've never seen Pushing Daisies, but I found the plot super easy to follow here. The characterizations are perfect and I am in love with the connection between Stiles and Derek and the UST and the longing to touch that finally culminates in some hot and sweet sex.

Stiles just wants to live long enough to become a junior. // Two years later, Stiles and Derek are still together, but there's 200% more sex and too many miles between them.
Super cute human AU that starts with Stiles and Derek only 2 years apart in high school. Derek helps Stiles with Lacrosse and feelings happen! And a lovely sequel with Derek in college and them doing the whole long-distance thing.

Summary: Medieval Chasing Liberty AU: As the only son of King Stilinski, Stiles doesn't have a lot of freedom, but he doesn't let that stop him from traveling for days to the biggest festival of the season with a begrudging stranger, Derek.

Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek, various past relationships
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 34,219
Warnings: AU: Human, no hale fire, hale family lives, Laura lives, bottom!derek
Summary: Stiles and Derek were inseparable growing up, but then college, jobs, and life happened. When Stiles comes back to Beacon Hills a decade later, he doesn't expect to reconnect with Derek, and he sure doesn't expect to fall in love with him.
Really sweet AU with Stiles and Derek as childhood friends who've grown apart. It was lovely seeing Stiles move back to Beacon Hills, watching the two of them rekindle their friendship, and then see it grow into something more. Sort of a different vibe from a lot of AUs in that most everybody has sort of grown up and apart, which made for a refreshing change of pace.

Title: Losers

Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek, Scott/Allison, Jackson/Lydia, Erica/Boyd, Isaac/OFC
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 34,235

Summary: Where Derek is new to college, eager to spend his time learning, and Stiles is everything he didn't want in a room mate. He's loud, he's into sports, and he keeps trying to make Derek do things. Or, the one where Derek falls for a jock, Erica will cut you if you disturb her studying, and Jackson is a closeted romantic who pretends to hate everything.
I loved this fic. Lots of UST that eventually gets resolved and normal first year of college situations.

Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek, Scott/Allison
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 37,571
Warnings: AU: Human, first time, dirty talk, phone sex, switching, underage
Summary: Scott's brother Derek gets surprisingly hot when he comes back from college. Stiles, and his hormones, deal with this new development less than gracefully. // AU. Set two years in the future of "How to Date Your Best Friend's Brother" in which Stiles is graduating high school and Derek is working on his master's degree. There is prom, graduation, and a few very uncomfortable confrontations.// Part of the "How to Date Your Best Friend's Brother" series that focuses on Scott's POV through Stiles and Derek's relationship. Or, in which Scott goes from being annoyed by his grumpy older brother to actually sort of appreciating the guy.
I really like Human AU's where Derek is Scott's brother. This one was funny and hot!

Title: A Little Agony

Summary: The mandatory fandom "undercover as a couple at a BDSM club" AU.
I love a good BDSM fic and this one was fabulous! I liked that it played around with not just the D/s aspects, but S&M and pain play as well. Super hot read.

Now, presented with a choice between two children of the Hale family of Ignis, Derek and Cora, he must make the decision to determine who will rule by his side. If only it were that simple.
This was fantastically written, the dialogue has the perfect among of aged influence. The characters are great and I loved the slightly different take on the arranged marriage idea.

Word Count: 42,206

Lovely fuckbuddies fic that, of course, involves pining and misunderstandings and so many feelings. Wonderful read.

Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek, Scott/Allison, Erica/Boyd
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 42,609
Warnings: AU: Human, cop!derek, cop!stiles, switching, laura lives
Summary: The Sheriff's department of Beacon Hills is finally getting a K-9 unit. Stiles is thrilled. Well, he would have been if he had remembered that they were starting today. He wishes someone had reminded him. He also wishes someone had informed him that his new colleague and the one who's going to help them start the K9 unit is smokin' hot. Or that is new partner in form of a dog kind of lives to disobey him.
If this doesn’t work out he hopes his dad will write him a letter of recommendation to a department somewhere in Alaska.
There are no real pirates in this story.
I'm not sure I have read a fic yet where both the boys are cops and it works out perfectly here. The dogs are lovely additions and all the supporting characters are perfect.

Title: Alpha Magazine Verse (3 Fics)

Rating: Hard R
Word Count: 45,823
Warnings: AU: Human, assistant!stiles, boss!derek, boss/employee relationship, Laura lives
Summary: Stiles thinks he’s finally getting a break when a job at the sleek, sophisticated, Alpha Magazine opens up - but soon realizes he’s not going to be writing anything and instead is playing tutor-slash-babysitter to their new Editor-in-Chief. Derek’s spoiled, grumpy, in way over his head...and so painfully attractive it makes Stiles want to lick his face. So there’s very little choice in the matter.
(AKA, the Ugly Betty AU where Stiles is totally Betty) // The lost months in Not Like Bond & Moneypenny, in which Derek pines, Laura tries not to meddle, Stiles blogs, and everything works out in the end. // After all they went through to get here, it should be plain sailing from now on, right? Because you all wanted more, and I give in to demands too easily.
This was a fantastically well written AU. The characters were interesting and well-developed and the relationship build between Stiles and Derek was fantastic. Full disclosure, I have not yet read the third fic, but based on the first two fics, it's probably great! :)

Summary: Derek works at a porn store. One day, Stiles comes in asking all sorts of TMI questions about different toys. That's where it all starts.
This is a crazy, freaking hot, seriously porn heavy AU. Minimal angst and extra sexy, with a side of sweet feelings.

Title: Closer Than Most

Summary: Laura organizes a charity bachelor auction to raise money for the wolf sanctuary she and Derek inherited from their parents. Derek reluctantly gets roped into bidding on one of the bachelors, and he sure as hell doesn't know what he's getting himself into when he decides to bid on Stiles.
I'm not usually a huge fan of "fuckbuddies to lovers" fics, but I thought this one was lovely and really well written. The development of their relationship was great and I thought the way all of the characters were worked in was great. Plus the sex was mind-meltingly hot!

Summary: When Stiles Stilinksi steps foot onto Court 8 at Roland Garros, it's everything he's been dreaming of for the last nine years, and everything his life has been building towards since the first time he held a tennis racquet in his hands fourteen years ago.
It's kinda funny, Stiles thinks, that his first game in a Grand Slam (that's right, he's playing in a freaking Grand Slam) is against a fellow American. Hell, he's a fellow Californian. Derek Hale is slightly taller than him, his face is stubbled and just as grumpy in real life as he's seen in numerous photos and video coverage. And yeah, in any other circumstance Stiles might admit that the stubble and general sense of 'stay the hell away from me' totally works for him. But right now it's just intimidating as fuck.
Fun and relatively fluffy tennis AU. Hot sex and a lovely relationship between Derek and Stiles.

Content/Warnings: AU: Human, AU: Fusion, scrubs fusion, doctor!stiles, doctor!derek, laura lives, switching, bottom!derek, bottom!stiles, boss/employee relationship, office!sex, semi-public!sex
Summary: In which Stiles learns that med school didn’t prepare him for much at all; even the most epic of bromances can be weakened with the right amount of long, curly hair and dimples; and sometimes, first impressions aren’t all they’re cracked up to be - it’s the digging beneath the bravado that reveals who’s worth getting to know a little better.
Dr. Hale’s probably still a dick, though.
Really cool Scrubs AU that perfectly incorporates all the Teen Wolf characters. Loved the dynamic here between Stiles and Derek and Stiles' relationship with Scott was actual perfection.

Title: The Noble Ties that Bind Series (2 Fics)

Summary: The one where pledge brothers Stiles and Scott start a prank war with Derek Hale's fraternity. // A Derek POV to There is a Brotherhood. In which Derek's life is hard.
I've seen these fics recced all over the place since I joined fandom, and for some reason I decided not to read them. I don't remember what it was, but something put me off and every time they came up again, I remembered that I hadn't wanted to read them and moved on. Anyways, they came onto my radar again recently and I could not for the life of me remember why I had decided not to give them a go. So I finally read them and I am so freaking glad, because both fics are delightful and so much fun! I love the world created here, and how all the characters are perfectly incorporated. It is a funny and fairly light series, which I desperately need sometimes, and the connection (and sex!) between Stiles and Derek is fantastic. Time seriously flew by while I was reading and I could not stop smiling and laughing throughout.

Summary: Two years after graduating from the Police Academy, Stiles decides to transfer to the Beacon Hills Police Department, where his father is Chief. But when he gets assigned his new partner, Stiles isn't so sure if the transfer was a good idea. Derek 'Officer Grumpy Cat' Hale isn't exactly his first choice of partner. Then again, Stiles really isn't Derek's first choice either.
Awesome cop!AU with a wonderful Derek and Stiles. Loved their interactions and connection here, and the precinct background was a lot of fun. Plus some super hot sex. :D

Summary: Derek Hale is a lonely and depressed artist living in New York with his two cats Galatea and Coppélia. The prospect of another guilt-inducing miserable Christmas, paired with a chance encounter on the city streets, leads Derek to put aside his cynicism for one moment and make a hopeful wish upon a star.
Oh this fic! So beautiful and just achingly lovely. Derek as an artist struggling with depression was heartbreaking and wonderfully done, and Stiles as his sculpture come to life was adorable perfection. Seriously such a wonderful holiday fic!

Stiles takes it upon himself to get to know him better. The only problem is, he's got no idea what he looks like...
This seemed like it would be kind of a random AU, but I really liked it. The plot was interesting and the interactions were so cute and the sex was hot!

Summary: Stiles Stilinski is the best trapeze artist west of the Mississippi, but that doesn't do him much good without a catcher. Enter one quiet roughneck who calls himself Derek and knows maybe a little too much about circus arts for someone who was hired to schlep tents. But Derek has his secrets, and so does the new girl, Allison. Who's being hunted and who's being haunted, and will Stiles ever be able to convince Derek to help him fly again?
I never thought circus Au's would be something I would enjoy. But I've read (and recced) two now, so I guess I was wrong! This fic is beautifully written with canon characters, relationships, and plot points wonderfully incorporated into this wonderfully-crafted world.

Summary: They meet on an airplane. Which, given Stiles' history and Derek's annoyance with all things fidgety, isn't the best place to hit things off. But an iPod, a shared Taxi, some photos, and a concert might be enough to change all that.
Sweet Human AU with musician Derek and photgrapher Stiles meeting on a plane and hitting it off right away. I loved their connection in this one and the sex was crazy hot! Plus I thought it was an interesting twist on how Claudia's death and the Hale family deaths were incorporated into this verse.

Summary: Stiles goes camping with his friends in New Mexico after graduation where they befriend a biker gang led by Derek: a guy whom Stiles can’t decide if he he will be either relieved or devastated to never see again once their week is up.
This was a seriously amazing AU. I loved how all the characters were incorporated into the story, and the relationships between everybody were really great. The connection between Derek and Stiles was so well-written and powerful. And the tone of the entire piece is just amazing, it made me so nostalgic for summer trips with friends when I was younger.

Summary: Derek is Scott's older brother. Stiles is Scott's best friend. Derek is falling in love with Stiles. This is a bit of a problem.
This was so well written and intricate. The characters are so well developed and the relationship between Stiles and Derek is slow moving and believable and heartbreakingly beautiful. There are also a ton of little sequels to this fic detailing everybody's lives together.

Summary: At age nineteen, Stiles Stilinski was the next big thing, according to The Guardian. It was surreal, not being able to turn on Sky Sports without hearing his name mentioned along with the names of players he grew up idolizing. Stiles couldn’t believe that this was his life.
This was so freaking amazing!! I was a little apprehensive at first , because this is a very different world from Teen Wolf, but it worked really well. It was wonderfully written and I think the more difficult issues (internalized homophobia, coming out in sports etc.) were really well handled and didn't overpower the story. Stiles and Derek's relationship is fantastic here and I loved all the Football players! Plus the sex was crazy freaking hot! Also, even though there is switching in this fic, I would say it is primarily bottom!stiles, just as an FYI.

Summary:Essentially the world of Teen Wolf set in the late 1890s, with themes and some minor character names/places specifically borrowed from Anne's world (and no disrespect meant to LM Montgomery, because I love Anne Shirley to bits and pieces.)
Stiles is the adopted son of the Sheriff, brought to Beacon Hills to hopefully stay for good. A family, a best friend, school, the Lady of Shallot, Jackson as Josie Pye (because who else could he be?) and the mystery of a dark haired, green-eyed boy which leads Stiles to discovering a secret within himself.
This may seem like a somewhat strange fusion but OMG it is so freaking awesome. It is fantastically written and such a wonderful, heartwarming story, made even more special for the little allusions and connections to Anne of Green Gables, a story which meant a lot to me as a child. I love how the characters have been incorporated in this fic and the characterizations here are truly lovely. There is seriously so much to love here; the sweetness of Stiles and the Sheriff becoming a family, the amazing friendship between Scott and Stiles, Scott's adulation of the adorable Allison, Cora's fiery independence, and the developing love between Derek and Stiles. And while it is pretty true to the times in terms of society's view on homosexuality, this does have a believable and happy ending!

Summary: Apparently it still amuses his uncle to buy sex slaves for him, no matter how steadfastly he refuses to use them. Derek ducks into his tent with a resigned sigh, prepared to dress and reassign whatever new beauty Peter has bought him. They do make for loyal servants, so he can't really complain about Peter's 'gifts'. But it is annoying to deal with, to have to spend his evening sorting out a slave instead of being able to go right to bed. It's just something he has to learn to accept as a byproduct of serving alongside his uncle.
But when he lays eyes on the boy laying amid his furs, he finds his breath catching in his throat. His skin is golden with the candle-light glimmering against the sheen of oil that has been slathered on his bared body. His lips are parted, and they work over inaudible words or sounds. His skin is flushed, nipples peaked and pierced with simple but unexpected golden rings. He's spectacularly beautiful in the candlelight. The many glowing candles that have been added to his usual lighting cast glittering edges and shadows, imbuing an almost unearthly golden color to his skin.
It's enough that Derek hesitates.
Incredibly written and super engaging Historical/Human/Royalty AU with warrior prince Derek out fighting the Argents under his Uncle Peter's command and Stiles as a slave gifted to Derek. The world-building and plot here is wonderfully done, and the build and connection between Derek and Stiles is lovely. There's some darker content here, but the author provides plenty of chapter warnings for any bits you might need to skip, and for the most part it's relatively mild.
