~ A Pushing Daisies AU
Derek is nine years old when he discovers the gift that he’s been given. A gift that he didn’t necessarily ask for. Derek can touch dead things and bring them back to life. But not without consequences and conditions, many of which are heartbreaking.
Many years later, his path crosses that of his childhood sweetheart, Stiles, in very unfortunate circumstances. But now, Derek’s gift gives him the power to save Stiles. And damned be the consequences.
“Where are we going?” Derek asks instead.
“Beacon Hills,” Allison answers him, and Derek’s heart skips up a bit at the name of his home town. “You ever been there?”
“You could say that,” Derek says, letting out a deep breath. “I kinda grew up there. Before boarding school.”
“Well, get ready to go back then,” Allison says, “You free this afternoon?”
“I can ask Scott to keep an eye on the restaurant,” Derek nods, “I’ve done all my baking for today. So… this dead guy from Beacon Hills, does he have a name?”
“Gościsław Stilinski,” Allison says, and Derek’s heart stops beating.
“Stiles…” he whispers out, swallowing around the lump in his throat.
Derek Hale is a notoriously difficult to work with Oscar winning actor that’s hit a slump in his career.
Stiles Stilinski has been stuck in the role of “goofy sidekick” for years and wants to break out of that mold.
They get cast as a gay couple in a new independent movie. Derek is absolutely skeptical that Stiles can play the role and Stiles resents Derek’s disdain for everything he’s ever acted in.
When they come to terms with the fact that they both badly need this movie to help their careers, they stop fighting and get down to business. As they progress through filming, a friendship is born that soon grows into something bigger and more powerful than either actor could have ever hoped for.
Inspired by “Performance in a Leading Role.”
I was tagged by sterekandklaine so I’m gonna answer all these questions now - thanks for tagging me! <3
Okay, here we go:
Pick your top 5 shows, no cheating!
1. Who is your favourite character in 2?
Hmm, hard to choose. I love Mike and I love Harvey, but I guess Donna is the best of them all. Though Louis has a place in my heart as well. Do you see my problem???
2. Who is your least favourite character in 1?
There are so many I do not like. I guess I’ll go with Gerard, he’s the easiest choice.
3. What’s your favourite episode of 4?
I might be wrong but I think it was either episode 2 or 3. I just loved it.
4. What is your favourite season of 5?
The first and for now the only one, ahaha. Cannot wait for the second to come out soon!
5. What’s your favourite relationship in 3?
Khal Drogo and Daenerys Targaryen. OTP forever and ever.
7. How long have you watched 1?
I remember I picked it up more than a year ago (I don’t really remember, feels like forever before), dropped it after like 5 episodes, because I’m too lazy when it comes to watching new shows. Picked up again after a couple of weeks or a month (my memory is failing me, omg) and it was still ongoing. Watched it ever since.
8. How did you become interested in 3?
I DON’T REMEMBER LOL. I just love fantasy.
9. Who is your favorite actor in 2?
Patrick J. Adams, he’s just such a cutie.
10. Which show do you prefer 1, 2, or 5?
Plot wise? Continuity wise? Either Suits or Orange is The New Black, because let’s not kid ourselves, Teen Wolf should learn so much from these shows. But I guess Teen Wolf has ruined my life beyond repair, so I prefer it the most. *cries*
11. Which show have you seen more episodes of? 1 or 3?
Well, Teen Wolf has more episodes, so there you have it.
12. If you could be anyone from 4 who would you be?
I don’t know? I mean everybody has so much issues. Nope. LOL But if I really had to choose - Mary, of course.
13. How would you kill off your fave in number 1?
KILL??? WHAT? No. No killing, nope, never. Why would you ask that? Okay, if I really must answer that - a death with less pain and suffering, giving his last breath away in Derek’s arms.
I HATE YOU. *tears everywhere*
14. Would a 3/4 crossover work?
I think it totally would. Royalty, fantasy elements, killings, blood, sex yada yada. AHAHA
15. Pair two characters in 1 that would make an unlikely, but strangely okay couple.
Well, everybody keeps saying that Stiles and Derek are not a good match… LOL but on a serious note I could totally see Coach Finstock and Greenberg happening. Yeah. *runs away laughing*
16. Over all, which show has a better cast, 3 or 5?
Game of Thrones, hands down.
17. Which show has a better soundtrack, 1, 4 or 5?
I’m in-between Teen Wolf and Reign. Both have amazing soundtracks, but recently Reign has captured me with each song they used, so I guess it’s Reign after all.
18. Best ship from all of them?
Teen Wolf - Stiles and Derek
Suits - Mike and Harvey
Game of Thrones - Khal Drogo and Daenerys
Reign - Mary and Francis (I’M SORRY LOL)
Orange is The New Black - Piper and Alex

'SEED WOLF' - 3 / ?
The beginning’s always a little slow, but the big reveal is coming up in the next one, I promise! ♥
This is Nashi, writing in my brother’s, Krzysztof, name.
Back in February I made a post about my little brother needing a surgery. We were desperate, as my brother was sick all the time and the quicker he got the surgery, the better. It hurt my heart to see him - usually extremely active and healthy - so vulnerable, and I couldn’t do anything to help.
I’m mainly a Teen Wolf blog, so I asked my followers for help.
And an absolutely incredible thing happened. You guys helped us. In a recordingly short time, we were able to gather enough money for the surgery and post-op care, which is a lot more than I’ve imagined.
Now, finally, my brother is on his way to recovery. All thanks to you. The surgery was successful and now he’s resting at home until he’s fully healed.
We want to thank each and every one of you - for every dollar and good word that you gave us. For every signal boost. For commissioning ouicatwithahat, who offered to help by drawing commissions (and who drew this amazing thank you pic as well! You’re a true sunshine!).
TL;DR: THANK YOU, TEEN WOLF FANDOM. WHOLEHEARTEDLY. YOU MADE THIS HAPPEN. This has proven me that even though we have our differences sometimes, even though sometimes it’s hard and we only see flaws in each other… I want you to remember that you helped a human being get healthy again. As a fandom. As Teen Wolf’s fans. :)
(Big thanks to people who aren’t in Teen Wolf fandom but helped nevertheless as well!!! We’re not forgetting about you, guys ♥)
the best kiss is the one that has been exchanged a thousand times between the eyes before it reaches the lips
Wow, I love this quote.
GUYS I REALLY NEED TO WRITE THIS EVEN THOUGH IT’S BADWRONG AND DEPRAVED:
I WANT AN AU IN WHICH STILES IS THE SON OF THE KING/CHIEFTAIN AND IT IS CONSIDERED TRADITION FOR EVERY MEMBER OF THE ROYAL FAMILY TO HAVE THEIR VERY OWN TAME WEREWOLVES FROM BIRTH, LIKE, THEIR VERY OWN LIFELONG FURRY BODYGUARDS
THE WEREWOLVES ARE TRAPPED IN THEIR WOLF BODIES BY MAGICAL COLLARS THAT ALSO FORCE THEM TO BE OBEDIENT TO AND PROTECTIVE OF THE PERSON THEY’RE SUPPOSED TO GUARD
ANYWAY, PRINCE STILES IS BORN AND IS DEREK IS IMMEDIATELY “ASSIGNED” TO HIM
AND WATCHES OVER HIM AND WATCHES HIM GROW, RIGHT FROM THE CRADLE ONWARDS; DEREK LETS A BABY STILES PULL ON HIS FUR AND GIGGLE AND FALL ASLEEP AGAINST HIM; DEREK FOLLOWS A TODDLER STILES AROUND TO MAKE SURE HE DOESN’T FALL AND HURT HIMSELF OR PICK UP THE WRONG SORTS OF THINGS AND EAT THEM; DEREK SITS NEXT TO A YOUNG STUDENT STILES AS STILES IS SUBJECTED TO HOURS OF BORING LESSONS FROM PRIVATE TUTORS AND AMUSES HIMSELF BY PLAYING CATCH WITH DEREK’S WAVING TAIL; DEREK SETTLES AT STILES’S FEET DURING DINNERTIME AND GENTLY TAKES FOOD FROM STILES’S FINGERS WHEN STILES REACHES DOWN TO FEED HIM
IT DOESN’T TAKE LONG FOR DEREK TO REALIZE THAT HE’S STARTED TO CARE ABOUT THE STILINSKI HEIR MORE THAN HE SHOULD, THAT IT’S GONE BEYOND MAGIC AND RIGHT INTO HIS HEART, BECAUSE ALL HE WANTS IS FOR STILES TO BE SAFE, FOR STILES TO BE HAPPY, AND IT’S -
IT’S HORRIFYING BECAUSE DEREK IS BEING FORCED INTO THIS SERVITUDE, AND HE FEELS BETRAYED BY HIS OWN MIND BECAUSE HE’S STARTING TO LIKE IT, TO WANT IT, TO NEED IT BECAUSE IT ALLOWS HIM TO CURL AROUND STILES AT NIGHT AND KEEP STILES WARM
DEREK HATES BEING TRAPPED IN HIS WOLF’S BODY, HATES TRYING SO HARD TO MAINTAIN HIS HUMANITY IN AN ANIMAL’S BODY, BUT HE LOVES STILES, LOVES STILES LIKE HE WOULD LOVE HIS OWN CUB, LIKE HE WOULD LOVE HIS OWN…
AND THAT’S - THAT’S HORRIFIC, BECAUSE DEREK HAS ALL BUT RAISED STILES, AND YES, STILES IS SIXTEEN, NOW, BUT HE’S STILL YOUNG AND DEREK IS A BEAST UNSUITED TO HIM, NOT EVEN HUMAN, A WOLF WITH SLAVERING JAWS AND TALONED PAWS, MADE TO REND AND KILL, AND LOVE SHOULD BE BEYOND HIM, BUT IT ISN’T, EVEN THOUGH IT’S SO WRONG
MAYBE IT’S BECAUSE DEREK HASN’T SPENT TIME WITH ANYONE OTHER THAN STILES FOR YEARS AND YEARS; MAYBE IT’S BECAUSE STILES’S SCENT IS THE ONLY SCENT HE RECOGNIZES AS PACK ANYMORE
OR MAYBE IT’S JUST SOME ROOT OF EVIL WITHIN DEREK, TO DESIRE A GROWING STILES LIKE THIS, AND MAYBE THAT EVIL IS WHY DEREK HAS BEEN SPELLED INTO SERVITUDE IN THE FIRST PLACE, MAYBE THIS IS WHY HE’S BEING PUNISHED
AND IT DOESN’T HELP THAT STILES LOVES HIM BACK, ALBEIT FAR MORE INNOCENTLY; IT DOESN’T HELP THAT STILES IS AS PROTECTIVE OF HIM AS HE IS OF STILES; IT DOESN’T HELP THAT STILES SEEMS LESS CLOSE TO OTHER HUMAN BEINGS THAN HE DOES TO DEREK, THAT STILES PREFERS SPENDING TIME WITH DEREK RATHER THAN THE GIRLS AND BOYS HE’S INTRODUCED TO AS POTENTIAL SPOUSES, THE GIRLS AND BOYS THAT MAKE DEREK WANT TO DESTROY THEM FOR SO MUCH AS HOPING FOR STILES’S TOUCH, FOR STILES’S FAVOR, FOR STILES’S BODY
BECAUSE IT’S A BODY THAT DEREK WANTS TO CLAIM AS HIS OWN, BESTIAL AS HE IS, AND HE FEELS MORE AND MORE LIKE HE’S A DANGER TO STILES, BUT HE STILL CAN’T LEAVE, STILL CAN’T PULL AWAY, BECAUSE HE IS AS BOUND TO STILES BY DESIRE AS HE IS BY MAGIC
AND THEN ONE NIGHT, WARM AND NAKED IN BED AND WITH HIS ARMS WRAPPED AROUND DEREK, STILES WHISPERS: “I SWEAR IT SEEMS LIKE YOU KNOW ME, SOMETIMES, THAT YOU GET ME, AND - AND I KNOW THEY TOLD ME NEVER TO TAKE YOUR COLLAR OFF, THAT YOU’D GO BERSERK AND KILL ME, BUT I DON’T… I DON’T BELIEVE THEM. I JUST DON’T. YOU’RE MINE, AND I’M YOURS, RIGHT? YOU COULDN’T HURT ME ANY MORE THAN YOU COULD HURT YOURSELF. SO I’M… I’M TAKING IT OFF, AND I’M - I WANT YOU TO BE WITH ME ‘CAUSE YOU’RE FREE, YOU KNOW? NOT BECAUSE YOU’RE BOUND. YOU’RE NOT MY PET; YOU’VE NEVER BEEN MY PET. YOU’RE MY FRIEND.”
AND DEREK’S SOUL BURNS AT THAT, BURNS WITH VICTORY AT BEING LOVED SO TRULY, AND BURNS WITH DEFEAT AT BEING LABELED A FRIEND, BUT HOW ELSE WOULD STILES VIEW AN ANIMAL? STILES DOESN’T KNOW THAT WEREWOLVES ARE PART-HUMAN; IT’S BEEN KEPT FROM HIM, LIKE IT’S BEEN KEPT FROM EVERY ROYAL HEIR UNTIL IT’S THEIR TIME TO INHERIT
DEREK HOLDS HIS BREATH AS STILES TAKES OFF THE COLLAR, AS STILES HOLDS HIS BREATH AS WELL - AND THEN, IN A SURGE OF MAGIC, DEREK IS FREE
AND HE TRANSFORMS, UNSTOPPABLY, SNARLING AS HIS BONES LENGTHEN AND HIS FORM CHANGES, AND HE HEARS STILES GASP BENEATH HIM, SUDDENLY SKIN-TO-SKIN AGAINST DEREK AS DEREK LOOMS OVER HIM AND TRAPS STILES’S WRISTS IN ONE HAND AND PLACES THE OTHER OVER STILES’S MOUTH
"DON’T SCREAM," DEREK SAYS, HIS HUMAN VOICE DISUSED AND HOARSE, AS STILES STARES UP AT HIM WITH WIDE, FRIGHTENED EYES
