SERIES 1; EPISODE 3
↳ When you’ve lived in someone’s shadow for a long time, you kinda get used to it. You have to. Especially when it’s someone so perfect and so beautiful. We accept that some birds are high-flying birds and other birds are not. But that doesn’t mean they can’t fly t o g e t h e r.
"But I didn’t," he shrugs, reaching the bottom of the stairs and continues to slowly cross the floor to where Stiles is pacing. "Besides, it’s not the first time."
Stiles scoffs. “And it won’t be the last, right?”
Derek frowns, steps slowing down as he approaches. Stiles steps backwards in sync, maintaining a certain distance between them. Derek stops, confused, watching Stiles move around the loft with his bottom lip caught between his teeth. First then does Derek catch the stench of distress and anger filling the air.
"What—” He begins, but is cut off.
"You’re unbelievable, you know that? Do you possess some level of self-worth at all?" Stiles stares at him from across the room, chest heaving, eyes glazed with emotion but his voice spits venom. "How many times will you run head first into danger, like you’re the pack’s human shield or some shit?"
"Not human," is Derek’s automatic reply, which apparently is the wrong thing to say because the next second Stiles is stalking towards him with fire in his eyes.
"I’m sick of your furry excuses!" He exclaims. "I’m sick of hearing you and Scott talk as if you got every reason to sacrifice yourselves because of your damn healing." Derek doesn’t realizes he’s taken a step back until his back hits the pillar behind him. Stiles walks right up to his face, close enough to feel the heat of his breath as he keeps yelling. "Like it’s a reason for you to take bullets that were meant for me."
His breath is ragged once he stops, his chest heaving. Derek’s gaze darts between Stiles’ eyes, wide and so close. Stiles ducks his head down, swallowing as if he’s trying to calm himself. Derek doesn’t move, too overwhelmed by Stiles’ outburst. Because it means something; it means so much, and his chest tightens when trying to figure out what.
When Stiles lifts his head back up, the anger has been replaced by pure concern, and it hits all of Derek’s senses so hard his breath hitches, nostrils flaring.
"You’re not monsters," Stiles says lowly. "You’re people. The claws don’t change that.”
AU where Stiles and Derek break up for a really stupid reason and Stiles grows a grief beard. Whereupon most of Beacon Hills turns up on Derek’s doorstep:
Everyone: MUCH WOE?! VERY TRAGIC! SUCH DEAD ANIMAL ON FACE?! PLEASE TO BE TAKING HIM BACK AND KISSING HIM INTO SHAVING?!
Derek: …I’m not sure I even want to kiss him while he looks like that…
Derek: I think my beard is offended by his beard.
Everyone: D: D: D:
"hey…hey, save him…”
Because he’s not our hero. He’s a silent guardian. A watchful protector.
"Derek, c’mon, stop filming me," Stiles says, looking over his shoulder and squinting into the sun.
"Because you’re home," Derek says quietly, smiling at Stiles from behind his camera. "You graduated and you’re home."
"Yeah," Stiles replies, stopping by the sliding glass doors and turning around; looking past the lens, Stiles grins at Derek, reaching out and tugging at his hand, drawing him closer. "I’m home."
"What’s the purpose of your visit?"
