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.

Prologue + Chapter 1
“And you’ll be back home just in time for that!” Laura’s voice rings enthusiastically through the phone.
“If I’d known, I would have postponed my return,” Derek mumbles, biting down on a sigh.
“I heard that!” Laura says, then shifts her voice in to what Derek affectionately calls ‘whining’-mode. It’s also known as ‘totally getting her way’-mode, because she always does. “It’s for the wolves!”
“Am I not doing enough for the wolves already?” Derek asks, his eye falling on the tiny window of his barracks, looking out at the Alaskan snow.
“And you can do even more!” Laura says perkily, “I bet you will raise a ton of money, and – ”
“I am not putting myself up for auction,” Derek cuts her off.
“It’s a charity bachelor auction, Derek!” Laura insists, “If you decide to not scowl for two seconds while up on stage, and maybe even…” She does a fake gasp. “… smile at the people bidding, I bet you could raise enough money for The Pack all on your own!”
“Is that your way of telling me I’m somewhat aesthetically pleasing?” Derek quirks an eyebrow, even though Laura won’t be able to tell on the phone.
“Ugh, stop it,” she replies, put upon, “As if you don’t know. Come on, Der. We can seriously use the money. If we go on like this, we could get into real trouble. And then where would the wolves be? Not to mention that this is Mom and Dad’s legacy that they left for us…”
“Quit trying to pull the heartstrings, Laura,” Derek sighs, scratching at his jaw, because damn if it isn’t almost working. There is nothing that Derek would hate to see happen more than them having to give up their parents’ wolf sanctuary because of a shortage of money. “Look, I’m not saying I won’t participate. I can help in other ways, can’t I?”
He can hear Laura huff over the phone.
“I’ll help you put together the charity,” Derek continues, “Help coordinate things on the evening itself.”
“And bid on one of our bachelors,” Laura says, and she doesn’t even make it a question.
“Laura…” Derek sighs.
“It’s that or be a bachelor up for bids yourself, Derek,” she says, and he can hear when he’s defeated.
“Who died and made you in charge of my life?” Derek mutters, and he winces the second he hears the way it came out.
“Your sense of humor sucks, brother,” Laura deadpans.
Derek rubs his fingers over his eyes and utters a small, “Sorry.”
“Besides,” Laura starts again, “This way you might actually go out on a date again.”
“I don’t need to – ” Derek starts, but Laura cuts him off.
“When’s the last time you went out with someone, Derek?” she asks.
“I’ve been in Alaska studying wolves for the last six months, Laura,” Derek interjects, “It’s not exactly a dating scene here.”
“And what?” Laura asks, “There are no other biologists there? No one that can get you laid every once in a while? And what about the six monthsbefore you left, huh?”
“Goodbye, Laura,” Derek says, indicating the topic is over.
“You’re bidding on one of the bachelors, Der,” Laura says quickly, “And you’re bidding enough to win.”
“Bye,” he says firmly, but it might as well have been ‘fine’.
“Bye. Be safe,” Laura says, before he finally hangs up the phone with a sigh.
A date, he thinks, and he all but shudders at the idea. And yet he can’t help but be somewhat excited at the thought of going back home, seeing his sister again, and their wolves.

Scott and Stiles prefer to call it real-life Mario Kart.
#ok but take them out of context and imagine they were on a blind date#and Derek was terrible company because he was receiving texts from Erica every thirty seconds saying#I CAN SEE HIM FROM ACROSS THE BAR #HE LOOKS HOT#HAVE YOU BONED HIM YET #ASK HIM IF HE LIKES TO GET LOUD#STOP GLARING YOU’RE SCARING HIM#and Stiles was nervous as hell and trying to cover it#and spilt his water all over Derek #then nearly set the table on fire#but every so often they’d catch a break a couple of seconds where one of them would smile#and the other would smile back and hearts would start racing#and maybe Derek gruffly talks about his job as a cop#and Stiles lights up and talks about how he wants to be a cop too omg!!!#and Derek goes quiet like… oh fuck exactly how old are you#and Stiles is like uh 19#and Derek’s like ok i need to leave i’m old and this is a disaster#BUT Stiles chases after him like woah woah #hey i happen to like antiques ok#maybe i’m on the young side but idc how old YOU are#and i think you’re pretty neat#and i think we should try this again without your friend spying on us#and Derek huffs a laugh like damn you actually will make a good cop if you noticed that#and Stiles is like hell yeah you can totally teach me how to frisk someone#then blushes with embarassment and so DOES DEREK AND THEY’RE STANDING ON THE CORNER OF THE STREET#BLUSHING TOGETHER#and Erica leans out of the bar door and yells at them to kiss#BASICALLY MY POINT is that out of context this looks like Stiles trynna convince Derek of something#like them being a good thing (via stilinskisparkles)

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.
”Go on, jump on it.” Stiles didn’t have to be told twice. He vaulted himself onto the bed, moaning as he landed. It was the most comfortable bed he had ever lain in. He shut his eyes as he spread out.
"How can you fuck on this bed? I’d just fall asleep."
"Want to test it?" Derek asked, smirking.

"Derek will finally take on a real big brother role in season 3B for Scott."
THIS IS EVERYTHING I WANT. EVERYTHING. *grabby hands and cries*
When Derek “sacrificed” Paige to the Nemeton, he gave it power but also created a connection between them. So now that Scott, Allison and Stiles “opened the door”, maybe Derek is going to be affected by the Nemeton’s darkness, as well? That’d explain the TV Guide scan of the Nemeton in Derek’s loft and the wolf WHICH IS CLEARLY DEREK’S MOM AND WHO DECIDED THAT WAS OKAY ANYWAY AJHKFGK
If that’s true, though, doesn’t it seem likely that the connection has actually been open the entire time, but just wasn’t enough to attract too many other beasties with only Derek feeding it?
Which would mean that there’s a pretty good chance that he’s had this “darkness around his heart” since he was fifteen.
I actually thought about this and maybe it affected him somewhat but the Nemeton probably didn’t have enough power to cause Derek the same hallucinations/nightmares we might see the golden trio suffer in 3b. But if Derek has been connected to the Nemeton since he was 15, it might explain his “bad luck” for sure.
Also, here’s a thought. Derek doesn’t remember everything that happened when Paige died, because Talia took his memories to prevent him and Peter from finding the Nemeton again. So who knows what else she erased. The same way Julia/Jennifer shared a connection with the Nemeton and Derek (and Paige.) I think Derek has always shared a connection with the Nemeton, too. And he might not even remember the full story or the direct consequences of him awakening the Nemeton when Paige died. So maybe that’s what he’s trying to figure out in 3b!
did TV Guide seriously mention sterek
I love that Hoechlin jokes about it sdkfjk because when no one brings it up, he does! LOL I dare you to be more adorable <3
Also, “What’s misunderstood is that Tyler and I don’t like it or something. But that’s not true." Bless you Dylan.
Dylan is such a sweetheart. And I love how laid back Hoechlin is about this. “We do not talk about Sterek” except when he brings it up over and over at fan conventions ofc. :))
