A Poverty Most Profound by synchronized_strangers
Stiles/Peter, Stiles/Derek | 11k | NC-17, underage (Stiles is 14), character death*
Summary: It’s much harder than he expected, though, to stand beside Stiles on the lawn as his house burns down. Hard to keep his hand on that too-thin shoulder, birdlike under Peter’s fingers. It’s strange trying to reconcile the fragility of a human boy with the predator he is underneath, but Stiles has always shown his true colors under adversity.
He doesn’t cry. He just asks, “Was it them?” Because he’s clever enough to understand what having enemies means but innocent enough not to recognize when one offers comfort.
Peter does what’s easy, and lies, “Yes.” Then he does what’s hard, and stays.

This isn’t a fic for everyone, first: Stiles is underage in this fic. The fic begins with Stiles at 13, nothing sexual occurs until he is 14. Still, he is heavily under Peter’s influence from a young age. Peter here is devious and cruel, completely focused on getting revenge on Kate for the fire. The canon divergence occurs because Stiles knows the Hales ahead of time. Peter doesn’t fall into a coma instead he sees Stiles as a perfect tool to facilitate his revenge.

If I had one complaint it might be that Stiles is a bit too bad-ass for his age and to be completely in character (even with all the tragedy in his life) HOWEVER being able to suspend my disbelief of that actually made the fic better because... idek... it saved it from being too realistic? It let all the events that happened (Peter’s manipulation of Stiles and Stiles manipulation of Peter) become palatable in its insanity. Don’t get me wrong it’s not crack. It’s more the ott immorality of a gangster movie? Best comparison I can think of. Check your morals at the door with this fic.

The sex is brilliantly hot and wrong and hits all the right underage kink buttons, never dipping into my squicks. And the psychology behind Peter’s shaping of Stiles into a weapon is just fabulous, as is the fact that Peter is not infallible. Brilliant read if this is your type of fic.

*feel free to ask me for character death spoilers if you need to know.

A Mating Moon by unpossible
Stiles/Derek | 40k | NC-17
Summary:“Hey, Scott, so, I uh, there’s this amazingly hot guy and I’m uh, gonna spend the weekend with him but, you know, just to be careful, I’m sending you his picture, so if by some terrible chance my bloated corpse shows up sometime Monday, just, y’know pass this along to the authorities.” He pauses. “Uh. Kidding?” and then hangs up with a rush of air.
“That is the worst voicemail in the history of voicemails,” Derek says.

I read this while it was a WIP and it was a blissful experience. unpossible knows how to give good WIP (just fyi, for future temptations) updates were daily, sometimes twice a day, solid writing, solid plot. And the fics get finished. Definitely an author worth subscribing too if you like WIPs without the risks. Anyway - this fic. Werewolf AU, Sheriff falls on hard times and Stiles turns to prostitution to save his father from losing their house. Derek is looking for someone to spend the ‘mating moon’ with, so they can fuck like bunnies, no strings attached. It’s an eventful weekend. Of smut and feels.
Note that after chapter 16 (ie: right before the last chapter) this fic has a series of Interlude chapters that I highly recommend reading before moving on to chapter 17. It’s worth it.
