GRUFF MEN WITH GRAVELLY VOICES MAKIN’ PLANS
COMING UP WITH DIFFERENT PUNCHLINES TO TRICK A TRICKSTER AND MAYBE STOPPING AT THE ARBY’S DRIVETHRU TO GET SOME FOOD ON THEIR WAY TO GET GOING ON THEIR PLANSSSSSSSSS
"Never go after a werewolf at full strength," Gerard said, one of those first early hunts Chris was allowed on, hanging back, trying to hide his fear, watching Kate’s eager face and wondering how she did it so easily.
"The trail’s fresh," Kate said, at the mouth of the cave. "I don’t see—"
"We can wait," Gerard said. "A full grown werewolf needs more than the handful of grubs and dead bats he’s going to find in there. Let him get hungry, weak. Wait until he’s desperate enough to make a mistake."
It’s quiet in the car, Derek’s hands folded neatly over his knees. In jail they were given turkey sandwiches wrapped in cellophane. Fruit cups. A couple bags of pretzels that looked like they were from the vending machine.
"Hungry?" Chris says.
"I’m fine," Derek says. Chris turns into the next drive-through anyway.
"Chicken sandwich," he says into the intercom. Glances over at Derek. Healing takes a lot out of a werewolf, Gerard always said, grinning. "Two double bacon cheeseburgers, a—you want a shake?" he says.
"You don’t have to—"
"Vanilla or chocolate," he says.
"Vanilla," Derek says quietly.
Teen Wolf AU: Stiles starts speaking in innuendos around Derek. And making lewd suggestions. And calling him pet names. And generally being more obnoxious than ever, really. It picks up a couple months into post-nogitsune recovery; he figures this is how Stiles has to cope with the way their friendship was forced to grow after the revelation that, holy shit, Derek would die for him.
It’s not like the epiphany was a walk in the park for Derek, either. After all, he’d been the one bleeding out on the floor.
(While Scott had roared over his aching body, taking up a defensive stance to give Derek time to heal, he remembers thinking vaguely, ‘But I don’t even like Stiles,’ and wondering when that changed.)
It’s only when they’re alone, though, and they are sometimes. No one’s really eager to let anyone else out of their sight in the aftermath, and when Stiles ends up alone he consequently ends up at Derek’s, instead. Part of him wonders if Scott put him up to it all, maybe to scare Derek out of the pack, but that’s probably his old paranoia rearing its head in the midst of insecurity. The thing is, he doesn’t know how many more times he can ignore Stiles’ blatant behavior, how many more times he can let it roll off his back. Derek has put up with a lot these past few years but being made fun of for the sport of some seventeen-year-old is where he draws the line; if this is Stiles’ chosen road to recovery, he can follow it somewhere else.
Just when Derek thinks it’s tapered off, that Stiles will finally resort to his former, tried and true antics—ones that Derek can counter easily, ones that don’t involve Stiles bending over at every opportunity and a constant barrage of compliments to various parts of Derek’s body—he starts doing it in front of Scott. Scott, their alpha, Stiles’ best friend, who’s less than amused. To Derek’s surprise, Scott’s pique comes from the idea that they’re hiding a secret relationship from him rather than the potential of an actual relationship between the two of them. But an actual relationship— with Stiles? It’s ridiculous.
Except, if Derek’s honest with himself, maybe it isn’t.
i’M READING ABOUT GOATS IN MYTHOLOGY/FOLKLORE AND I FOUND OUT IN THE MIDDLE AGES GOATS ‘WERE SAID TO WHISPER LEWD SENTENCES IN THE EARS OF SAINTS’ AND I JUST
NOW IT ALL MAKES SENSE
I was wondering when people were going to realize that “you breed with the mouth of a goat” means “you talk dirty when you fuck.”
THAT MAKES SO MUCH SENSE OH MY GOODNESS
