Title: What Happens When You Cut the Wrong Purse Fandom: Teen Wolf
Pairing: Scott McCall/Stiles Stilinski
Characters: Stiles Stilinski, Scott McCall, Derek Hale, Gerard Argent, Sheriff Stilinski, Chris Argent
Word Count: 23,225 words
Additional tags: alternate universe (fantasy), canonical death mentioned

Summary: "What happened anyway? Why were they trying to kill you? What did you do?"

"Nothing!" Stiles protested, then amended, "I don't know. They said something about me stealing some kind of official delivery, but..."

"Did you?" Scott asked with raised eyebrows.

Author's notes: This is my entry for the sciles rbb challenge. I'll add a link to the artwork (a really goregous piece done by Naomi (arenjager on tumblr)) when it is available. I had so much fun writing this and creating this universe. I have so many more ideas for this that the only reason this isn't 40k instead of 20k is I ran out of time. Which means there is a good chance this may have a sequel.

I just finished the third fic in this series and realized I'd never posted the first two here either.

Season 3b of Teen Wolf left me with all the Scott/Stiles feels. I knew even before the season was over that I wanted to write a story set post season exploring how Scott and Stiles could get together. This series, You Still Have Me, is that story. Three fics in it so far with more to come. :)

Rating for these stories is all G, but I expect it will eventually go higher. :)

Part 1:

Comfort Given Is Comfort Granted

Summary: Stiles stared at his phone for a long moment after the message finished, though he already knew what he was going to do. Despite Scott's attempt to hide it, Stiles clearly heard the tiny tremor in his voice that signalled he wasn't doing nearly as well as he was trying to seem. There was no way that Stiles could hear that and not be there for Scott. No matter how messed up he himself was still feeling.

Part 2:

I'll Be Your Sounding Board

Summary: So far though Stiles seemed to be dealing by concentrating on being there for Scott and Scott couldn't say he hadn't found his presence a balm. He may have been a little quieter, a little less frenetic, but he was still Stiles and Scott would always find his presence a comfort. And if Stiles helping him in turn helped Stiles, that was just a bonus Scott would take gratefully.

It didn't stop him wishing that Stiles would let him help in a more direct way though.

The memorial was the first chance Stiles gave him to do just that.

Part 3:

Pull Me Back From The Brink

Summary: He had figured the scenting would probably gradually stop over time, but so far it seemed like the exact opposite was happening. Whenever Scott would get agitated or upset, Stiles would find himself getting sniffed, whether it had anything to do with him or not. And it always seemed to calm Scott down. Stiles was starting to feel like a security blanket or....

Oh.

So I'm home from work two hours after I started. Why, you may ask?

I was baking today which meant I had to go in and out of the walk in freezer a lot. Now there's a wooden step that goes up to it, has been for several years now. Last week they cut the step in half so it's now only extends maybe a foot or two out from the freezer when it used to extend like four feet. I've only baked once since they cut it so I'm not used to its new length yet.

Some of you may see where this is going...

So my first trip out of the freezer, I take my usual big step, and instead of landing firmly on the step, I land on the exact edge of it and rolled my ankle pretty badly. Instinctively I shifted my weight to my other foot to try and keep from falling which by this time was ALSO on the edge of the step, rolled that ankle too and.... well let's just say gravity works. I went down like a sack of potatoes.

Scraped my knees a little but I twisted/sprained both ankles enough that I kinda resemble Lurch or Frankenstien's monster when I try to walk. I tried to stick out my shift but I could tell the ankle I rolled first (and worst) was starting to swell and I really needed to get off my feet so I gave my apologies and came home. Am now sitting in the lazy boy with ice packs on both ankles. Wee! Aren't Sundays fun? :p

The good news (aside from the fact that I didn't hurt myself worse) is I have the next two days off so hopefully I won't lose any time off of work (I got paid for the full day today as per workman's comp regulations so yay for that). But man I do not fool around when I fall, do I? :p

Dear spider,

I am not an arachnaphobe. When I saw you crawling on the overhead light's chains last night I did not kill you because hey you weren't bothering me so why should I bother you? Plus, you eat other bugs like the house centipedes that definitely do creep my out big time.

So how do you repay me?

By crawling all over my blankets and me and my laptop while I lie in bed with the lights off and FREAKING BITING ME.

Actually the order was crawling on my blankets, biting me then crawling on my computer which is when I saw you and realized what that little sharp pain on my leg had been.

At which point I yelled, flailed, turned on the light and blew you off the top of my laptop because I did not want to touch you and wanted you OFF OF MY COMPUTER NOW OKAY THANKS.

Which may have been a mistake because I quickly lost track of you on the carpet. I then went and got my cat and plopped her down at the approximate spot I last saw you (because hey, predator and another pair of eyes), but she is the worst hunter ever so I don't know if you made yourself scarce or she just couldn't find you.

I was about five minutes away from turning off my laptop and going to sleep. Now I am WIDE AWAKE with the LIGHTS ON because I need to be able to verify that there is NOTHING CRAWLING ON ME.

If you know what's good for you spider you will STAY THE FUCK AWAY FROM ME because if I see you again I WILL SQUISH YOU FLAT.

No love,

Me



Seriously, I usually go out of my way not to kill spiders because I feel guilty when I do, but this one has crossed a line with the biting.

...and I bet I'm not even going to get any cool spider powers out of it.

Current Mood: awake WIDE AWAKE THANKS A LOT

What You Always Were
Rating: PG
Part 4 of The Sword of Damocles
Characters: Stiles Stilinski, Derek Hale, Sheriff Stilinski, Scott McCall, Isaac Lahey, Peter Hale, Alan Deaton, Cora Hale, Lydia Martin, Allison Argent
Pairing: Derek/Stiles (though still in the slow burn stage)
Word count: 24,102
Post Season 3A (not compliant with 3B)
Summary: "You think Stiles sees something in me that no one else does."

"I think Stiles put a name to something that everyone who knows you sees in you," Cora said.

Derek blinked. "What?"

"Oh please. You already all but said you felt like the name fit you. You're at your best when you're protecting people, Derek. Speaking as your little sister, I can safely say you always have been. Don't you think that's something that people were going to notice?"

Author Notes: So this fic is about two months later than I thought it would be, mostly due to season 3B making me compulsively write comfort fics. But here we are finally. I feel we've definitely moved into slow burn for the Derek/Stiles relationship, though it could probably still be read as gen if a person wanted to. Also, trigger warnings for attempted suicide (of an original character) and original child character in danger. Hope you enjoy. Now off to work more on a post 3B Scott/Stiles fic as well as the next part of SoD. :)

Using this icon even though neither of these characters were in the movie because I don't actually have a Steve Rogers icon...

Just got back from seeing Captain America 2...

My non-spoilery reaction: Holy Crap was that a great movie! I think it might be my new favourite of the solo hero movies (ie, all the movies except Avengers because Avengers is in a category all of its own). I think I had to have chair danced in glee at least ten times during the film. It was just that good.

I also think I legit want to see every movie we got trailers for, which NEVER happens. Granted considering three of the five are movies based on marvel comic characters (X-Men: Days of Future Past, Spider-Man 2, and Guardians of the Galaxy) maybe not so surprising. The other two trailers were Lucy, which action movie with a female lead played by Scarlet, yes please, sign me up, and Maleficent, which I had been on the fence about seeing but the trailer I think sold me.

Now going behind the cut for my spoilery reaction:Collapse )

Both of these were inspired by events in ep 3.23 Insatiable.

(and as an aside, I have to say I just completed two fics in four days. That... has never happened before. I don't know what the hell Teen Wolf has done to my writing output, but I have to say I like it.)

Making Amends
Rating: G
Word Count: 1842
Characters: Melissa McCall, Stiles Stilinski
Summary: "He lied, you know," Stiles said around his chattering teeth.

"Who lied?" she asked, rubbing his fingers to try and work some warmth back into them. If part of her was holding tighter to make up for her earlier reticence in touching him she didn't think it would do either of them any good to admit it out loud. Far better for them both she told herself to just concentrate on treating the symptoms of mild hypothermia that the oni's touch had left him with.

"The nogitsune. When it said... Scott could never hate you. That- That's not why I didn't tell him."

Author's Notes: A missing scene that deals with the fact that Stiles knows the big McCall family secret and that Melissa now knows he knows. Also to fix some of what the nogitsune damaged.


The second fic deals with the big spoiler of the ep so I'll put its details under a cutCollapse )

Well, say what you will about s3b of Teen Wolf, it has jump started my muse like whoa. Or at least Stlinski family feels has done so. I've finished two new fics in the last few days, one a missing scene for ep 3.21 and another that's pretty much just more shameless Stilinski family feels. With the amount of that I'm writing, I'm debating making a Teen Wolf version of the Queen of Schmoop icon because it certainly feels like I'm living up to that title!

Anyways, onto the fics:

Deterimination
Rating: G
Word count: 862
Characters: Sheriff Stilinski, Deputy Parrish
Relationship: Sheriff Stilinski & Stiles Stilinski
Summary: They're the same. Exactly the same. It's a trick. The whole thing was just a trick.

The words kept echoing in Stilinski's head as he walked back to his car, clutching the folder holding the proof it was all a trick so hard he was in danger of crumpling it.

By the time he made it to his car and slid behind the wheel, his mind had stopped reeling enough to begin to really think about what this all meant.

--
A missing scene for 3.21 The Fox and The Wolf.




Whatever You Need
Rating: G
Word Count: 2145
Characters: Stiles Stilinski, Sheriff Stilinski
Relationship: Sheriff Stilinski & Stiles Stilinski
Summary: So yeah, there were the expected nightmares, but it was slowly getting better. Eventually -- soon he hoped -- he'd be able to stomach the idea of sleeping alone in his own bed again because as much as it helped, he really was way too old to be sleeping with his dad.

He tried to say as much a few times, to apologize for need this because it wasn't fair to his dad either, having his teenaged son stealing half his bed and interrupting his rest with his nightly trauma. But Dad shut him down every time with a firm shoulder clasp and a, "You're my kid. Whatever you need for as long as you need. Okay?"

Stiles would nod and mutter, "Okay," in reply and then vow to work even harder to get to the point where he didn't need this. His dad deserved his space after all.

--

Set post 3b. This could be read as a sort of sequel to Sound of Home, but can be read as a standalone as well.

So yes, by this point I've just accepted that as season 3b continues to try and rip my still beating heart out of my chest, I am going to continue to respond by repeatedly writing fics with ALL the Stiles comfort post possession. As coping mechanisms go, it could be a lot worse.

Also, the show really needs to give Sheriff Stilinski a canonical first name because it is just weird writing from his POV and referring to him by his last name. I probably would've written something from his POV a lot earlier than this if I hadn't been dithering about whether to just decide on a first name for him or go with the method I did.

The life of a fanfic writer is hard sometimes.

Title: Sound of Home
Rating: Gen
Characters: Stiles Stilinski, Sheriff Stilinski
Wordcount: 1845
Written post 3.19, set post 3b, possibly the definition of Stilinski family feels

Summary: Home had been silent and still without Stiles there, so much so that it felt like the very air there was pressing down with a tangible weight on him. The words funeral pall had whispered all unbidden in Stilinski's mind the last time he had tried to get a few hours of shut eye and that was what had broke him. He'd got up, quickly threw on a change of clothes and left, before the silence had him reaching for a bottle instead.

He'd known then that home would never be home again if he didn't get Stiles back.

So apparently my reaction to each episode of Teen Wolf trying to break my heart with Stiles feels is to write fics set after the season ends where Stiles is a) no longer possessed, b) not sick, and c) trying to deal with everything that happened.

They've done it two episodes in a row now and I've written two post 3b fics:

Title: Trust
Rating: Gen
Characters: Stiles Stilinski, Sheriff Stilinski, Scott McCall, Lydia Martin, Derek Hale
Pairing: Stiles/Derek
Wordcount: 2881
Written post 3.17, set post 3b

Summary: He expected that he'd have to earn back the trust and acceptance they'd given him before and that it wouldn't be an easy thing to do.

And that was okay -- Stiles was prepared for that. It sucked, but things could suck a lot worse. He was alive and himself again and that was the important thing. He could deal with everyone putting some distance between him and them, and he was fully prepared to do so.

Except that wasn't what happened.

Nobody took a step back. If anything everyone seemed to be pulling closer, but not in any creepy we're keeping our eye on you to make sure you stay in line sort of way. They all just seemed to want to be there, want to have him there and seemed to have totally forgotten that he'd (or at least his body) had tried to destroy them all not that long ago.

It didn't make any sense.

Title: Preemptive
Rating: Gen
Characters: Scott McCall, Stiles Stilinski
Wordcount: 1747
Written post 3.18, set post 3b

Summary: He felt the tension in Stiles' body next to him, watched his long fingers grip the game controller tighter. He could smell the anxiety wafting off Stiles at the question. "I'm...." fine, Scott finished for him in his head, knowing it was what Stiles was planning on saying. But then his character died onscreen and Stiles just stared at it for a moment, before slumping back against the couch cushions. "I'm really not," he said instead with painful honesty.

In an effort to post something other than fic announcements, I stole a meme about writing from morganoconner.

Put a number in the comments and I’ll answer accordingly. The mission for those of us who answer the questions, should we accept it, is to stay positive about our writing and ourselves, but to also be fair about our shortcomings.

1. Of the fic you’ve written, of which are you most proud?
2. Favorite tense
3. Favorite POV
4. What are some themes you love writing about?
5. What inspires you to write?
6. Thoughts on critique
7. Create a character on the spot... NOW!
8. Is there a character you love writing for the most? The least? Why?
9. A passage from a WIP
10. What are your strengths in writing?
11. What are your weaknesses in writing?
12. Anything else that you want to know... (otherwise known as Fill in the Blank)

Coin of Death
Rating: PG
Part 3 of The Sword of Damocles
Characters: Stiles Stilinski, Derek Hale, Scott McCall, Sheriff Stilinski, Isaac Lahey, Lydia Martin, Allison Argent
Pairings: pre Stiles/Derek, also there's Stilinski Family Feels
Word Count: 19,895
Post Season 3A (not compliant with 3B)
Summary: And the last thing in the dream, the thing that had made him wake up screaming, was hearing the voices calling his Dad's name. All the fear and vague menace that Stiles had been feeling since that morning suddenly coalesced into a single horrified certainty.

"Derek," he said in a tightly controlled voice, as he fought back the resurgence of panic, "where's my Dad?"

Author notes: And we finally get actual plot in this one, which is probably why it's twice as long as I'd planned it to be. Also, trigger warnings for mention of a suicide and a scene where someone talks another person down from (magically induced) suicidal thoughts.

Just a little bit of New Year's Eve Stiles/Derek fluff.

Title: When Anger Fades
Rating: G
Fandom: Teen Wolf
Pairing: Stiles/Derek
Wordcount: 1823
Summary: "I thought we were like Fight Club," he blurted. Derek just raised his eyebrows at him so he continued. "Y'know, the first rule of Fight Club is we don't talk about Fight Club. I thought we were like that. That we..."

"Don't talk about it?" Derek finished for him.

"Yes! That us -- what we have, our relationship, feelings, all of that -- that we, y'know, do what we do and shut up about it." Great he'd gone from quoting Fight Club to quoting Supernatural.

So still not doing well at posting here regularly, but doing much better at keeping up with the writing. See, here, have another finished fic!

Snapping Into Place
Rating: G
Part 2 of The Sword of Damocles
Characters: Derek Hale, Stiles Stilinski, Scott McCall, Cora Hale
Pairing: None in this story but the series will be eventually Stiles/Derek
Word count: 8453
Post Season 3A
Summary: "Connection," Derek replied immediately. "Family, friends, trust, love, it all boils down to connection. A strong pack, a pack that's working, that's meant to be, it just... the connections are there. You can just feel it." He tried to think of a way of describing something he'd never tried to put into words before. "It's like-"

"Like you're all pieces of the same jigsaw puzzle and someone's just snapped you all together." It wasn't, quite, said like a question.

"Yes," Derek said, nodding his head even though he doubted Stiles could see it in the darkened room. "Exactly like that."

In an effort to actually have a presence here again, here have a tv meme:


- Bold all of the following TV shows of which you've seen 3 or more episodes.
- Italicize a show if you're positive you've seen every episode.
- Asterisk * if you have at least one full season on tape, DVD, or blu ray.
- If you want, add up to 3 additional shows (keep the list in alphabetical order).

I watch way too much tv....Collapse )

So I haven't been posting much (or at all really) for a very long while, and for a great chunk of that I wasn't writing either. But then I signed up for a challenge on tumblr (writehabit101) to write every day for three months at the same time that I finally got around to watching (and falling for) Teen Wolf. These two things together seems to have kickstarted my writing again and I can't tell you how happy I am about that.

And that means I come to you now bearing not one but two fics that I've written in the past six weeks:

Family Insomnia Time

Rating: G
Characters: Stiles Stillinski, Sherriff Stillinski
Wordcount: 2385
Post Episode 3.12 Lunar Ellipse
Summary: After it was all over, the almost dying, the getting rescued,the letting the authorities know that Stiles' Dad, Scott's Mom and Mr. Argent were no longer among the missing, when questions had been answered and lies concocted and physical check-ups endured, they got to go home. Stiles got to get in a car and go home. With his Dad.


The second fic is also the beginning of a series because apparently my muse is not happy unless she's flinging giant plot bunnies with teeth at my head:

The Prodigal Wolf
Rating: G
Part 1 of The Sword of Damocles
Characters: Stiles Stillinski, Derek Hale, Scott McCall
Pairing: none in this but the series will be eventually Stiles/Derek
Wordcount: 11,089
Post Season 3A
Summary: It was six months after Derek left Beacon Hills that Stiles drove by the Hale loft and noticed a light on inside.


I hope to actually get back to posting more regularly here but in the meantime, here's fic! :D

Title: Two Conversations
Fandom: Avengers (Marvel MCU)
Rating: G
Pairing Characters: Tony Stark, Bruce Banner, Hulk
Word Count: 2448

Author's notes: No, I'm not dead! Just been posting more over at tumblr than here (fwolfling.tumblr.com). And I've had a pretty dry year when it comes to writing, though that's at least partially because I'm dipping my toes into writing in a new fandom and it always takes me a while to find the character voices. But I think I'm starting to -- here's my first completed fic in the Marvel MCU fandom. It was written for Avengers Fest 2012 for pinkelephant42.

Summary: Two conversations Tony has after the battle with the Chitauri.

Art Prompt Title: untitled
Art link: Art Masterlist
Prompt Number: 1049
Artist: mizra

Fic Title: Hearts and Grace Entwined
Author: wolfling
Fandom/Genre: SPN
Pairing(s): Dean/Castiel
Rating: PG
Word Count: 16427
Warnings: none

Summary: When Castiel is trapped in Purgatory, what are the Winchesters to do except go in and get him out? But there's more than just the leviathan to worry about there, and finding the way home demands more than just fighting their way through.

Notes: This was written for the 2011 SPN Reverse Big Bang. Many thanks to my artist mizra whose piece had the plot spring up almost entirely full formed in my mind the second I saw it. I hope she likes the story her work inspired. Also many thanks to the RBB mods who were kind enough to give me an extension when I was not able to make my first posting date. I love this challenge and would've been incredibly disappointed if I'd had to forfiet.

Also thanks, as always to omphalos, who betaed this for me in less than a day. She's a superstar!
