soulmates tag (it shouldn’t have wolf mates so)
Everyone had a mark scrawled somewhere across their body. A name, usually a signature to represent their soul mate, their one and only true love. Stiles has known who his mark belonged to since the third grade. He doesn’t understand how Derek can be so oblivious.
Stiles was content to live his life without ever knowing who his soulmate was but when a leaked celebrity video leads to him knowing who his soulmate is, he has to meet the guy. He doesn’t expect to like Derek Hale, certainly doesn’t expect to fall in love with him, but Stiles thinks he and Derek might have a shot if Lydia doesn’t kill him first.
When the name Grzegorz tattoos itself across Derek’s wrist in neat, thin strokes, his mother pats him on the head in sympathy and Laura laughs so hard she has to go to her room, the sound echoing down the hall as she goes. When it stays there for six years and no such Grzegorz appears, Derek seriously considers moving to Poland.
Meanwhile, on Stiles’ eighteenth birthday when Derek crawls onto his skin, untidy and volatile, Lydia shrieks in sudden realization, and Jackson looks so entirely offended that even Danny can’t kiss him back to normal.
The first etching of the mark appears when Derek is eight years old.
The two people connected by the red thread are destined lovers, regardless of time, place, or circumstances. This magical cord may stretch or tangle, but never break. Stiles Stilinski can see these threads.
Suddenly his entire body felt tingly and sensitive and he could swear gravity had failed on him just then; he couldn’t feel the chair he was sitting on, or where he’d planted his feet on the floor, or the clothes he was wearing, or the pen he was holding, and then his vision started blurring and morphing into a picture of some place that was not his classroom.
“—it,” he finished with a different voice.
Or, the AU in which, on their 22nd birthday, a person will switch bodies with their soulmate and is left to figure out whom they’re temporarily inhabiting, and how to get back to each other. But because Stiles is Stiles, he forgets that it’s his birthday, and the bodyswap takes him by surprise.
If You’re Wondering, If I Want You To (I Want You To) by pandacowhipster (1/1 | 3,025 | R)
Derek’s not an expert on wooing or taking hints. He gets by with a little help from cult films.
Derek passive-aggressively courts Stiles
In which Derek fails at wooing, and Stiles fails at catching a clue.
Written for this prompt: Awkward courtship funtimes! Derek is courting Stiles in the way that all male animals go about impressing their mates. Giving them practical (if weird, like, Derek gives Stiles 10kg of steak) gifts, making a nice home (he starts renovating the old Hale house), weird shit like that. Stiles is oblivious, and Scott keeps sort of helplessly hinting at what Derek is doing to little effect. Make me giggle and squeal into my pillow anon.
Derek knits a scarf. Finds friends along the way. And maybe be accidentally wooing Stiles.
Suddenly, Derek is everywhere, and not just in that creepy, Edward Cullen, I’m-gonna-stalk-around-and-lurk-broodingly way. Stiles doesn’t know what’s up with that, but he’s pretty sure there’s only one conclusion to be reached.
We’re all going to fucking die.
Derek tries to be more obvious about his feelings. Stiles does not react according to plan.
In the aftermath of his family’s tragic death, Derek can’t possibly believe he’ll ever recover from the pain. When he’s given an unexpected chance to view a future supposedly filled with happiness, all he finds is himself as a stubborn fool who refuses to admit he’s in love.
Stiles wakes up in a bed that is not his own with someone he doesn’t know cuddling him. He has no idea how he ended up there.
Hint: he might have been sent to the future.
Derek gets a glimpse of the future in which Stiles has two biological daughters and that’s how he knows he and Stiles are going to break up.
Stiles has chrono-displacement. It sucks. (Canon-based Time Traveler’s Wife AU)
Parrish Stilinski-Hale convinces his parents to let him travel back in time to the year 2011, to meet his grandfather, the Sheriff.
The pack is so sick of Stiles and Derek not being together even though there completely in love with each other. To help they use magic to try and give them some insight in to their feelings they just didn’t count on bring their daughter from the future.

i’ve read more high school aus than i’d like to admit, and this is the rec list with all the ones i’ve read and liked!!! 46 fics & faves bolded.
As Good As The Real Thing by literaryoblivion (5,8k, M)
Summary: He’s maybe had a crush on Stiles for going on two years now, but there’s no way he’s ever going to act on it or say anything. But, he’s memorized all of Stiles’s quirks and habits because he and Stiles have been in the same history class for two years now, and he always ends up sitting by him. However, he and Stiles have had limited interaction with one another, which is fine. Derek can subside on his daydreams of Stiles. He can live the rest of his high school career on his fantasies alone.
That is until their teacher assigns them to be partners for a project
Someone Please Murder Dr. Wyne by QueenOfAllPeasants (2,5k, NR)
Summary: Stiles starts asking questions in the margins of his chemistry textbook because that thing couldn’t be more confusing, and then someone starts leaving answers.
This Might Be Irony by thepsychicclam (38k, M)
Summary: Stiles and Derek have been close friends since the Hale siblings moved in next door after their parents’ death. But Derek’s in the popular group, he’s a star baseball player, and he dates popular Pep Squad captain Jennifer Blake. Stiles doesn’t have any of that, just his skateboard and a hopeless crush on Derek (oh yeah, and his Vote Lydia Martin Prom Queen button). As prom and the baseball state championship grow closer, Stiles and Derek start rekindling their friendship.
And it all begins with two white boards.
Practice Makes Perfect by blacktofade (21k, E)
Summary: In his sophomore year, Stiles gets dragged to lacrosse tryouts by Scott and ends up practising alongside the senior captain, Derek Hale. Stiles just wants to live long enough to become a junior.
Easy Alpha by interropunct (4,6k, T)
Summary: Easy A/Teen Wolf AU. Wherein, Derek Hale is the high school slut, Jackson and Scott really need to learn to use their inside voices. And, contrary to pouplar belief, everyone is still a virgin.
John Hughes Did Not Direct My Life by nascentgalaxies (48k, E)
Summary: Stiles and Derek are childhood friends who drifted apart. When Stiles joins the lacrosse team against his will, the universe (with a little help from Laura and Lydia) chooses to push them back together.
A Thousand Fiery Suns of Angst - Just Press Play by apocryphal (21, T)
Summary: All Stiles wants from life is to learn to control his magic, keep his grades up, and not die horribly while saving Beacon Hills from supernatural threats. It’s all going pretty well until Derek Hale, werewolf extraordinaire, has to go and ask him on a date. That asshole.
Professor Xavier’s a Total Douchebag by Fanhag102 (13, T)
Summary: Derek Hale can read minds. If he could have chosen a mutant power for himself instead of being given one by random, genetic happenstance it’s safe to say mind-reading would not have been his 1st, 2nd, or even 96th choice.
Maybe if he’d gotten the power of invisibility he wouldn’t be sitting in a senior Economics class next to a hyperactive kid with a buzz cut who won’t stop thinking about dicks.
Why don’t you say so? by sassywerewolfuncle (8k, T)
Summary: Talia Hale has a plan. Derek will go to the Winter Formal and he will ask the Stilinski boy to dance, and they will finally get their heads out of their asses and her son will stop moping around the house in his underwear.
Spoiler: Derek doesn’t ask Stiles to dance
yes, yes i can.
It’s not a gender identity crisis if you’ve known all along what the problem is. If you’ve been purposely trying to ignore it since you were old enough to consciously make that choice.
But what happens after that, when you finally learn how to let go?
Part 2 of She Walks in Beauty
“Dude. You have boobs,” Scott replies, staring at Stiles’ chest.
“What?” Stiles puts hands on his chest, pauses a moment, and then cups his breasts. He pulls the neck of shirt out, and looks inside. “What the fuck, I have boobs! And what the hell has happened to my voice?”
“It’s an octave lower?” Derek deadpans, raising an eyebrow.
Derek is just looking for some peace and quiet when this girl barges onto their property trying to guilt-trip him into buying her cookies. It’s not love at first sight. It’s not.
untitled filthy porn (gonna call it like it is, for the moment) by thatotherperv (1/1 | 5,469 | NC-17)
Basically, I felt like writing het, I felt like writing statutory, I felt like writing slight dubcon and full creepitude and sort-of-kind-of-fecundfic?
So, title-less, summaryless, lazy, filthy, unbeta’d fic. Also, cunnilingus on her period. Because Werewolves. You’ve been warned.
Woah. Stiles had a massage next. She’d agreed to it because her mom said it would be nice, but shit, now there’d be someone touching on her. Shit. What if it was a scary Brunhilda type? What if it was a hot lady? Oh god, oh god, oh god—
“Stilinski?” Stiles pulled her robe more snugly around herself and looked over at the doorway to the rest of the spa, in which stood a dude. A dude. Who was like, chiseled as fuck. Oh god, oh god. Even worse.
Stiles swallowed. “Uh, yes—yeah. That’s me.”
Part 2 of Female Stiles AUs
"And then there was pain again, but this time it was in only three places—his arm, below his clavicle, and next to his heart, all on the left side. It felt like the skin was being sliced apart, ripped open, flayed off—
And suddenly it was done.
Derek looked across the room and saw the boy on the floor, looking about as bad as Derek felt.”
Derek and Stiles learn that bonding is probably best done with ridiculous amounts of video games and maybe a little bit of time.
The bar had been dark, smoky and hot, viciously so. Stiles had been that uninhibited drunk that meant he was tipsy, and willing to throw himself all over the place as he danced with Erica, but not stupid. He’d noticed the guy, noticing him. He’d smirked across the dancefloor at him, bitten his lip until it was raw and red and demanding the guy’s attention, draped his arms over the guy’s shoulders when he’d slunk out onto the floor finally, and pulled Stiles up against him.
They hadn’t so much danced as ground into one another until Stiles had needed to pause for breath. There’d been big, hot hands tugging up his shirt, clutching at his bare hips, pressing into him with an intensity Stiles is sure will have left bruises. The guy had been rubbing his cheek along Stiles’, making him shiver and arch into him, beard burn be damned it had felt too good to make him stop.
He’d pulled back, and the guy’s eyes had gone wide, almost panicked, before Stiles had mimed he needed a drink, tugged on his hand and led him through the crowd.
He twists back to lean against the bar, grins when the guy falls into him, their bodies melting into one another.
"What are you drinking?"
"Water," the guy shrugs, "Big day tomorrow."
"Aw, me too!"
"So, you’re out drinking?"
"Is that judgement I detect?"
"No," the guy smirks, drifts forward until his mouth is almost brushing with Stiles’, "I’m happy to be a distraction."
160+ ficlets under the cut, bolded are personal favorites.

almost-profesh said: Hey! My phones being stupid and won’t go to the tags for some reason. Do you guys have any Teen Wolf/Suits crossover fics? Thanks 😁
Anonymous said: Are there any fics that have virginal, awkward, i-have-no-idea-what-i’m-doing Stiles? The majority of the ones tagged in the First Time tag are ones where it’s his first time with Derek, not his first time ever. Thank you.
the fics tagged with first time are usually/majority of them are virgin stiles. some of them have him being an awkward bunny but others are stiles being confident sweet piece of ass. so you will have to filter them out but yes the first time tag is for virgin stiles (if you know of a fic in the first time tag that is not virgin stiles let me know and i will make a separate tag)
i found some time. it was randomly sitting in my pocket. SCORE
Silver Only Shines in the Moonlight (And I Rise With My Red Hair) by yourguardianangel (10/10 | 26,545 | R)
Stiles died alone.
He didn’t honestly know what he had been expecting; he had made it a habit to hang out with (and occasionally fight) bloodthirsty supernatural creatures of the night, and that had become a more frequent occurrence after all of that Darach business a while back. As the warmth of his blood seeped steadily through his fingers and onto the cold, filthy floor, he realized that no one was coming, that no one would be there in time.
Stiles couldn’t help the single whimper of utter helplessness.
Stiles becomes a member of the rapidly growing Beacon Hills supernatural population, to his own disgust, and along the way he finds out a thing or two about himself and the people he cares about most.
In a world where the likelihood of vampires and werewolves getting along is zero to none; Stiles has to learn how to navigate his coven through Beacon Hills and their werewolf pack. With his loyalty and future in the coven on the line will he be able to do all that his Sire wants while trying to ignore his feelings for one of the wolves?
Part 1 of In the Dark
It’s obviously rude and insensitive when Derek grabs Stiles by the wrist and yanks his thumb out of his mouth, but Stiles just snorts a laugh when it’s immediately replaced with one of the bigger curly fries out of his Arbys’ bag.
“You’re going to get buck teeth,” Derek says, folding his arms and looking pointedly at Stiles.
“I am not–” Stiles cuts himself off as his tongue darts over his upper lip. He makes a face and runs it over over his front teeth, lip skinning up in an unintentional baring of teeth. “Do I have buck teeth?” he panics. The curly fries are forgotten and dropped into the trash.
Deaton sighed and looked back down at Stiles. “Sorry, but you’re going to be a member of the undead.”
Groaning, Stiles covered his face. “I’m doing what? Fangs? Sparkles? Extreme sun allergy? Any way to reverse it?”
And that’s how Derek ended up babysitting the new baby vampire while he got adjusted. Stiles learns a lot about himself while he also learns that vampires and werewolves weren’t always enemies.
Part 1 of Pack’s Blood
Derek is sure, in some other universe where shit like this is funny, he and Stiles would be sharing knowing, reminiscent looks after the drifter literally rips Stiles’ throat out. With his teeth. Right before exploding into flames.
I seem to have so many days off every single month, no clue why that keeps happening. In August it was summer holidays, four glorious weeks of doing nothing but reading fics in the sun (except there was no sun but well). So here’s my Sterek Fic Rec List #8!

Also very much recommended is Brii’s AU fic rec blog which is all kinds of awesome - FUCKYEAHSTEREKAUS!
"Derek lets himself fall on his back, breath short, heart beating fast. He can feel the Wolf in him, purring in satisfaction and contentment. Asking for more. It wants him to turn and touch, to never stop touching. Instead, Derek squeezes his hands into fists and closes his eyes, trying to push it back, this need, this instinct screaming for his mate. For Stiles."
Title inspired by this Firefly quote: “When you can’t run anymore, you crawl, and when you can’t crawl, when you can’t do that, you find someone to carry you”
