Title: Wild and Reckless Breeze
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] GotTheSilver
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 15,761
Warnings: gettingtogether!fic, wanking
Summary: Post S2. In which Stiles is killing time working at a bookshop, Derek buys a lot of Chuck Palahniuk and they start hanging out, much to the confusion of Scott and the Sheriff.
Slow build with lovely characterizations, not too much smut.

Title: One Day I'll Accept Normalcy (But That Day Is Not Today)
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] jettiebettie
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 15,924
Warnings: established relationship, underage, bottom!stiles
Summary: “You know this still really weird, right?” Stiles asks around the toothpaste in his mouth.
“What's weird?” Derek asks. Stiles spits and rinses his mouth out.
“The cuddling. The cuddling is weird. This-” Stiles says, holding up his toothbrush to the mirror. “-is weird. The fact that I have spare clothes here is weird.”
I don't usually go for established relationship fics, because I like to see them get together, but this fic was fantastic. Featuring Agent McCall being a jackass and all the awkward Derek/Sheriff feels. Just a lovely light-hearted, feel-good fic! :)

Title: Strong, Stronger, Strongest
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] Green
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 16,248
Warnings: werewolf!stiles, mates, bonding!fic, rimming, magic!stiles
Summary: Close to death, Stiles can choose to die or accept Derek as his Alpha. It's up to the rest of the pack to heal him and face the Alpha pack threat.
This was a great werewolf!stiles fic! The way that the pack came together and the reason for Stiles' bite felt believable and the evolution of their bond was perfect.

Title: Happy Somewhere Else
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] twisting_vine_x
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek, Lydia/Aiden, Danny/Ethan, implied Allison/Isaac
Rating: R
Word Count: 16,322
Notes: teen wolf big bang 2013
Summary: When Derek and Cora leave town, Stiles figures out pretty quickly that there’s a stupid Derek-shaped hole inside his chest, right next to that damn darkness around his heart that Deaton had warned them about. Then, Derek invites him to the Atlantic Ocean, where a certain couple of werewolves have made their new home, and Stiles slowly comes to the impossible realization that his definitely-more-than-just-a-crush might not be completely unrequited, after all.
Love the way the darkness around Stiles' hearts is handled in this and I can totally see Derek finally finding a gorgeous place to live and be happy. Not really any smut in this one, but a super lovely fic.

Title: Last Night's Dress (Tiptoe out of This Mess)
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] hito
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 16,730
Warnings: gettingtogether!fic, fake/pretend relationship
Summary: TFLN: My dad just asked me if my booty call guy that comes over at 3am and leaves at 6 would like to stay for Sunday brunch next week. You in?
I love the fake/pretend relationship trope because it allows them to explore/realize their feelings and their is a ton of opportunity for flangst and UST. This fic has all of that and an amazing sheriff!

Title: Patterns of Intention
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] drunktuesdays
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 17,707
Warnings: magic!stiles, rimming, light dub-con
Summary: Derek looked like the stuff of his deepest fantasies. His shirt was rumpled where Stiles had his hands in it, and he was breathing hard as well, chest heaving. His eyes—his eyes were glazed over and he looked stunned, like he’d been—like Stiles had—
“No,” Stiles said, blood draining from his face. The word was croaky and felt like it had to be wrenched out of his chest. “God, no.”
This fic was wonderful. The explanation and evolution of Stiles' magic was very cool and the emotion felt very real.

Title: Words Alone
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] SnowshadowAO3
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 18,217
Warnings: knotting, dirty talk, mates, mentions of dub-con/non-con (not between Sterek), bottom!stiles
Summary: Derek gets the first text message two months after he leaves Beacon Hills. He stares at it for a long time without actually opening it up, trying to figure out why Stiles would be texting him at all. Over the next few months, as walls come down and a bond is made, the Nogitsune rears its head in Beacon Hills. Things start fitting together in Derek’s mind: his dreams, the door he sees Stiles enter, the loss of memory. Stiles’ body, his mind, are no longer just his. Something is sharing it, controlling him. It’s a horrifying realization. Derek doesn’t know what it is yet, but he’s damn well going to find out.
Really fantastic fic showing a mostly canon compliant 3B from Derek's POV. Loved how the canon events stayed the same, but how different everything look with a few changes to Derek and Stiles' interactions. Really great relationship development and super hot sex!

Title: First Date Series (7 Parts)
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] HalfFizzbin
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 18,287
Warnings: reckless!Stiles, failwolf!Derek, good-guy!Sheriff and a seriously ridiculous level of cuteness
Summary: Takes place in the canon 'verse about a year and a half after S2, and charts the major milestones in Stiles' and Derek's brand-new relationship.
Adorable and hot.

Title: Spark, Smolder, Catch
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] qthelights
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 18,347
Warnings: underage
Summary: When Stiles starts pulling down Derek's burnt-out house, Derek finds himself letting him. He doesn't know why.
Wherein Stiles and Derek are both broken and doing more damage might just be what they both need to move on.
This was a nice slow build with Stiles and Derek tearing down the old Hale house as a form of therapy.

Title: This is Not a Drill
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] dedougal
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 18,348
Warnings: established relationship, rimming, werewolf!sheriff
Summary: Stiles doesn't expect his dad to walk out of the burning building but when he does - and when he heals before their eyes - it turns out his dad had more contact with the rogue alpha they were hunting than anyone had expected. Now Stiles has to deal with his dad having super senses and being able to sniff out any of the trouble he's been hiding. And any of the other trouble he's been getting into with Derek.
Love werewolf!Sheriff, and so funny the concept of heightened hearing and smell as a parent, especially if your kid is trying to hide a relationship from you! And the sex was so so so hot, and I adored the relationship between Stiles and Derek.

Title: Walk Me Down Your Broken Line
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] gordielover
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 18,411
Warnings: first time
Summary: The kissing. That’s important, very important. Not that the homicidal lycanthrope dragging him through dirt and fallen leaves isn’t important, but the kiss that follows? The path to this monumental push of lips on lips began even before this ill-fated venture to the Hale house.
The douchebag manhandling him through the forest, hand clamped tight around Stiles’s throat to keep him from screaming, is just a bonus.
Wherein Stiles and Derek are both broken and doing more damage might just be what they both need to move on.
I lovd the writing in this one and the way the author dealt with Derek's Kate issues.

Title: The Newlywed Game
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] Captain_Loki
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek, Scott/Allison
Rating: Hard R
Word Count: 19,569
Warnings: fake/pretend relationship, college!fic, drug use, implied bottom!derek, shotgunning
Summary: Stiles is (still) single when the pack's getaway to the Caribbean comes by (oh misplaced optimism); lucky for him Derek is committed to being uncommitted and even after all these years is still powerless against Stiles' unique forms of persuasion.
Cue a romantic getaway for two: sun, sand, and sarcasm abound...and the two roped into competing in the Resort's version of the Newlywed game. Only it's completely obvious it's going to end in disaster. Probably homicide.
Most probably homicide.
Plot twist: It doesn't.
This was funny and cute. Love all the pack bonding and the slow relationship development between Stiles and Derek.

Title: But the World Won't Stop Turning
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] thepsychicclam
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 19,909
Warnings: AU: Fusion, time travel
Summary: Derek glances at Stiles, who is watching him with a curious expression.
“Oh shit,” Stiles exclaims as comprehension dawns on him. “Everything makes sense now. Derek, I know what the witch did, she cursed you with – “
But before Stiles is able to finish his sentence, everything fades away and Derek is surrounded by darkness.
This is actually fairly canon-compliant but it's a fusion with The Time-Traveler's Wife. Derek gets cursed by a witch and time travels around. this was really well done with not as much angst as I would worry about from this kind of fusion and a lovely connection between Stiles and Derek.

Title: A Whole Strip of Condoms
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] eeyore9990
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 20,221
Warnings: first time, switching, bottom!stiles, bottom!derek, friends with benefits, intergluteal, rimming, scenting, sort of prostitution
Summary: Stiles feels the crushing weight of his family's debt; Derek has piles of money. Derek needs to get laid; Stiles is a willing and eager virgin. It's a match made in... well. Beacon Hills. Eesh. Their odd little friendship has survived death threats, possession, and all manner of things that go bump in the night. Surely it'll survive a friends with benefits arrangement. Right?
Sweet and sexy fic! Lots of porn and some great characterizations of Derek and Stiles.

Title: That Secret They All Know
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] Salomonderiel
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek, Scott/Allison, Lydia/Jackson
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 20,461
Warnings: gettingtogether!fic
Summary: Somewhere, somehow, along the line, Stiles went from being the human sidekick of his stupid beta, to someone he gives lifts to when there's torrential rain, to being the one who sleeps beside him on the couch.
And god help him, but, for some reason he REALLY can't figure out - he doesn't seem to be doing much to stop this from happening.
This fic follows the familiar friends to more path but with a lot less angst than is usually prevalent in this type of fic. Sweet and refreshing.

Title: Miner for Truth and Delusion
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] blacktofade
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 20,978
Warnings: magic, love spell, fake/pretend relationship, scenting, first time
Summary: Stiles stumbles across what he thinks is a cult in the preserve and ends up cursed so that everyone wants to get with him. It makes it harder for him to get things back to normal, but luckily there's one person who's unaffected.
This was a fun and sexy fic.

Title: Destiny Sucks
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] beren
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek, Allison/Isaac, Danny/Ethan, Aidan/Lydia, implied Allison/Scott/Isaac
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 21,577
Warnings: magic!stiles, bonding!fic, switching, underage, first time
Summary: When Stiles sleeps he goes to the white place he, Scott and Alison visited when they sacrificed themselves. He keeps seeing a white wolf there and he knows it's important, but he's just so tired.
Such a fantastic story and I love the way the effects of the Nemeton on Stiles are portrayed. The white wolf is such an awesome and interesting concept and the sex and connect between Derek and Stiles was great!

Title: Let's Talk About Sex Series (7 Fics)
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] thatworldinverted
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 22,400
Warnings: phone sex, sexting, bondage, BDSM, D/s, collars, daddy!kink, rimming, bloodplay, face-fucking, overstimulation, sex toys, public!sex, exhibitionism, aftercare, knotting, dirty talk, safewords, spanking, praise!kink, dom!derek, sub!stiles, bottom!stiles, subspace
Summary: Pochemuchka (Russian), noun: a person who asks a lot of questions. "I saw the way you watched me, when I was home last month. How long have you been dreaming about getting me on my knees?"
This has some of the dirtiest, kinkest sex between Stiles and Derek I have ever read. It is filthy and fantastic..

Title: Have a Heart
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] kyrene
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 23,001
Warnings: first time
Summary: Spending his Valentine's Day on a stakeout and coming under threat of death by midnight... these are not Stiles' idea of how a holiday should go. Especially when it's Derek who's caught up in events with him. On the other hand, maybe things will work out all right in the end after all.
This fic starts out as a fuck-or-die type of scenario, but they don't end up having sex because of it. It just sort of forces them to realize their feelings and then have super hot sex.

Title: Our Memories Are Numbered
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] rufflefeather
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 23,105
Warnings: memory loss, rimming, implied bottom!stiles
Summary: Stiles’ Jeep grinds to a halt, he sees someone running through the rain, he's not expecting it to be Derek. He's not expecting a Derek without any memories either, or an Alpha pack that's coming for all of them. He probably should've, because lately nothing goes the way he expects.
This is great! Love the amnesia trope here, and how it really makes for a softer, more open Derek. It was cool seeing what he might be like without his past weighing him down, and the connection between Derek and Stiles is electric. Interesting take on the Alpha pack, and overall just a really satisfying and sexy read.

Title: Might Not Make It Back
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] GotTheSilver
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 23,347
Warnings: bodyswap, wanking
Summary: Bodyswap. Because of the fun.
This was a fun, well-written fic. Great UST that eventually gets resolved. :)

Title: To Have Outlived the Night
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] stillane
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek
Rating: R
Word Count: 23,448
Warnings: underage, fake/pretend relationship, light dub-con
Summary: Derek steps away from the window. “You helped me. They took that as a declaration.”
This is one of those fics that really feels like it could happen in the show. The slow-build, learning to trust one-another, and the eventual feelings that go along with that.

Title: When the Dust Settles (I'll Still Love You)
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] mysecretashes
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 23,764
Warnings: slight dub-con, fuck or die, rimming, first time, slight D/s
Summary: Stiles had imagined his first time many different ways, but never like this.
Love the flangst in this, the aftermath is so believable. And the sex, OMG, the blowjob was ridiculously hot and don't even get me started on the car!sex...

Title: We've Written Volumes (in Blood and Scars and Ink)
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] notthequiettype
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 25,935
Warnings: healing, werewolf mojo
Summary: Stiles is on his back on hard-packed dirt. He's cold and there are leaves stuck to his neck and there's a four inch gash in his side that he thinks he can feel his ribs through. There's so much blood around him he feels like he's floating on a pond and everything is so much dimmer above him than it was a minute ago, which is saying something because he's in the dark center of the forest in the middle of the night. And the worst of it is that he's alone, totally alone with the smell of his own blood drowning him and the soft side of him run through by a tree.
As his eyes slip shut, the last thing he thinks is, "This is going to kill my dad."
Great character driven fic with some hot sex and a beautiful relationship evolution between Stiles and Derek

Title: Lock All the Doors Behind You
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] entanglednow
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek
Rating: R
Word Count: 25,959
Warnings: feral!derek
Summary: He has no idea what you're supposed to say when you find one of your...werewolf acquaintances, completely out of their mind, growling like they're about to see what your insides taste like. There's no handbook for this. Stiles is thinking that if he survives he might write one.
A distinct lack of sexy times in this one, but I love the relationship development between Stiles and a feral Derek as he slowly comes back to himself.

Title: Delicate
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] lowlifetheory
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek, Scott/Allison, Scott/Isaac, Erica/Boyd, Lydia/Jackson
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 26,000
Warnings: shared bed
Summary: It’s been two days and Derek has apparently overcome his aversion to making himself comfortable in Stiles’ room. “Derek, that’s my shirt.”
“Yes.” He gives Stiles a look, your point?
Stiles grinds his teeth. “Why are you wearing my shirt?”
“I ran out of clean ones.”
Obviously.
The roof at the Hale house collapses and Derek ends up staying with Stiles and feelings happen! I love the relationship development in this one and the pack roles.

Title: Hide a Life of War
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] Etharei
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek, Scott/Allison
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 26,102
Warnings: established relationship, bottom!stiles, past underage
Summary: “We have received confirmation that there is a hostage situation in progress at a warehouse compound two hours out of Los Angeles, following a multiple-vehicle pileup on Highway 101 this morning...”
The one in which Stiles has lived to (legal) adulthood and, along the way, become a bit of a badass himself.
So I put off reading this fic for awhile, despite the rave reviews, because I knew it was established relationship, and from the summary, I thought that it was a future!fic, both of which I'm not crazy about, because I like to see my boys grow together. But this fic actually takes place when Stiles is 18, and besides that, it really is well-written and truly excellent and I am glad I finally gave in! The story alternates between the hostage situation and flashbacks, which threw me off at first, but once I realized what was happening, I really enjoyed getting to see glimpses of Stiles's life with the pack. I thought all of the relationships that Stiles has were really beautifully written and his characterization in this fic was seriously perfect.

Title: History, Like Gravity
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] cutloosemcgoose
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek, Erica/OMC, Scott/Allison, Cora/Isaac, implied Boyd/OFC, past Derek/Jennifer
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 26,691
Notes: inspired by the movie Sabrina, fake/pretend relationship, teen wolf big bang 2013
Summary: If Derek’s life were a romantic comedy—which it’s really, really not, what with all the murder, mayhem, and supernatural elements—it would inevitably feature the moment when Erica brings Stiles home and he and sees, for the first time ever, not a gawky, uncoordinated teenager with a penchant for graphic tees and plaid, but a young man, taller than Derek now, with broad shoulders and large, capable hands that finally match the rest of him. Stiles would be walking down a staircase in slow-motion and Derek would feel the world tilt on its axis while his entire perspective on life underwent a paradigm shift. Stiles would be looking at something or someone else, and he’d laugh before his gaze shifted back to Derek and when their eyes met, it would feel like being struck by lightning. Like getting hit by the thunderbolt.
Erica is getting married to a beta from another pack, and when Stiles comes back home from college, Derek thinks he and Erica are in love, and decides to date Stiles to keep him away from Erica and perverse the wedding and alliance. Of course, it's not much of a hardship, considering he has been in love with him for years. Derek in this is perfect and there are some ridiculously hot sexy times! I really love that = Erica and Boyd are with other people. I love them together in fics, but sometimes it's a bit much having everybody in the pack conveniently paired up with another person in the pack. I promise, the angst in this is totally manageable!

Title: Pack'verse Series (3 Parts)
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] strokeof_genie
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 27,012
Warnings: first time, underage, mate
Summary: Stiles does some research on pack dynamics.
Great fic that goes AU mid-season one and has some great background on pack dynamics.

Title: Nothing Short of Perfect
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] GotTheSilver
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 27,019
Warnings: soul bond, knotting, felching
Summary: In which Derek and Stiles are made aware of their potential and have to make a choice about what their relationship will be.
“Let me get this straight,” his dad says. “You’re telling me a witch told Derek and yourself that you could be destined to be together and now Derek will be going to college with you?”
Stiles shrugs, resting his hands on his legs to stop himself from fidgeting. “That’s about it, yep.”
I loved this fic. Not angsty at all really, but believable enough that it didn't seem like mind-numbingly sweet fluff. The build of their relationship was perfection and the side characters were amazing.

Title: Attach Me to Your World
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] artisan447
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 27,280
Warnings: magic!stiles, underage, bonding!fic
Summary: Turns out Stiles is magic. He's as surprised about that as anyone.
This fic was fantastic and seriously flew by! I loved exploring a more magical Stiles and the concept of the bond was very well done. The connection between Stiles and Derek was perfect and the angst was basically non-existent, but it wasn't overly fluffy. :)

Title: How to Melt an Alpha and sequel Of Pregnancy, Pups, and Pack
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] GigaCat
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek, background Scott/Allison, Chris/Peter, Lydia/Jackson, Erica/Boyd, Melissa/Sheriff
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 28,572 total
Warnings: established relationship, knotting, roleplay, bottom!stiles, MPREG, marriage!fic
Summary: Stiles' love life takes an awesome change of direction all because Allison talks Scott into taking some parenting classes.
This was funny and super hot. And then we get an awesome sweet and sexy sequel with Stiles actually getting pregnant and dealing with that whole crazy ride.

Title: The Rules
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] JoCarthage
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 29,172
Warnings: marking, sexting, underage, light bondage
Summary: This is the story of how Derek and Stiles managed to avoid having sex until Stiles was 18 and still have fun.
With Stiles being underage and Derek having such baggage, I feel like a lot of fics touch on the issues between the two of them having sex and being in a relationship, but few stick to their guns so fully as this fic. The rules that they come up with make sense and I love how they manage to still be intimate and work through their issues together.

Title: Front Row Tickets
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] written_in_the_dark
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 29,211
Warnings: disability!fic
Summary: Derek breaks his leg, and who else does he go to for help but Stiles?
This was a fun fic because for once Derek is the disabled one who needs help.
