tacit: (derek stiles)

 ... is one where Stiles notices that Derek will read whatever random book is lying around when he lurks in Stiles's room. So, Stiles starts strategically buying self help books and leaving them out. Like, 'How to bond with a child of abuse: an adoptive parent's guide'; and 'sexualisation and exploitation: healthy expressions of femininity', and the books have always moved a little when Stiles finds Derek in his room. And then he notices that the books go missing for days at a time even when Derek doesn't need to see Stiles, and he starts to notice Isaac and Erica being a bit less crazy around school, a bit more grounded. Isaac stops beating on people, and Erica's smiles get less predatory and more genuine.

The next book he buys is called 'Dealing with Grief', because he worries, ok? And he doesn't see Derek for weeks after it disappears from his desk. Then, one day he comes home from school and there it is, sitting by his laptop, and the spine is cracked and the corners soft. Beside it is a book Stiles doesn't recognise: 'Teenage Horndogs: When is your friend's PDA TMI?' and it takes a second but then Stiles laughs out loud. Because Derek's cracking a joke. Derek's making fun. Stiles reads it cover to cover that night and it is full of unlikely and crass scenarios, lovingly detailed with far too many exclamation marks. But it doesn't matter how awful it is; he's smiling the whole time, light hearted.

I love the idea of Stiles turning his mad research skills into being Derek's research librarian for how to have feelings that aren't "glowering" and "death threat" constructively.

You know eventually it's going to escalate into The Joy of Gay Sex on someone's account (IDK, maybe Stiles is just worried that Boyd and Isaac or whoever are not sufficiently informed about the importance of Good Communication and Taking Things Slow.)

(But if this isn't already a Sterek story I don't know whose reaction will be more wonderful, Derek's or Sheriff Stilinski's)

Haha, and no one is sure if that's the real moment at which things changed for the better, or if it was the fact that by the time Derek got home from Stiles' house he realized that Erica and Isaac had found a bookshelf and a comfy chair out on the curb somewhere and had brought them back and put them in a corner of their big serious underground headquarters. With a lamp to read by.

You don't know how gleeful I am that you're writing again (and in TW!!), I get to talk to you every day here and on twitter and you're just *around*:D You can't get another job or go back to school, ok? Sorry, you just can't, I will miss you too much.

I think this *is* the only fandom where both of us have been FULL OF FEELINGS at the same time. It's pretty awesome, we can feed each others enthusiasm:D

Have fun at the Olympics? I'm not watching this time round (I need to update my tv so I can get digital and therefor *watch* tv) but everyone seems super excited about it.

And you're totally going to keep writing this fic, right?
