[FIC]
Water Isn't Shaped Like a River or Ocean and It Mists Invisibly Against Metal and Glass by scoutshonor
Erica/Derek, Stiles/Derek | 13k | NC-17
Everyone graduates from high school on the same day.
This fic is just BEAUTIFULLY DONE. Honestly, one of the best, most realistic Sterek fics I’ve read and WHY SO FEW KUDOS??? This fic starts with a moment of weakness for Derek under the influence of ~something and he sees Erica all over Stiles and just … wants and reaches out and gets... Erica. Stiles just turns away, hurt. Then a relationship with Erica is easy and Derek is broken anyway and Erica makes things better, being there while everyone is off to college. So that is how the story begins. It’s basically a journey of Derek figuring himself out and healing, and later of Stiles (the sequel is in Stiles POV) finding his place in the pack/Derek’s life. This fic patient and beautiful, and the end game feels really earned.
(as an aside, I felt the Erica/Derek was handled really well and realistically. She was a well rounded character and an important person in Derek’s life, not a token body to get Stiles and Derek together).
