”(…) I was just a guy who had a crush on a girl who had a boyfriend. And, I had to do the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do, which was just to… wait. (…) For a really long time that’s all I had. I just had little moments with a girl who saw me as a friend and a lot of people told me I was crazy to wait this long for a date with a girl who I worked with. But, I think even then I knew that… I was waiting for my wife.”

“I hate it. I hate the air. I hate the sand. I hate the stupid people. I hate the way they work. I hate their bloody smiley bloody faces. I hate the never ending sky. (Well, why be here at all?) …It’s penitence.”
“Are you sure we’ve never met, because I could swear I’ve seen your face somewhere.”

It’s the most out of control he’s felt in his whole life. The most free. Because what else could possibly matter if Stiles were hurt? What wouldn’t he do?
He almost fucks up. He knows that. He did fuck up, really. It was stupid, to do that in front of everyone. To lose his temper. Jackson’s not the type to tell if no one sees- would love to walk around with black eye, actually. Let everyone assume he’s a badass. Derek thinks about making that his next step. Finding Jackson after lacrosse practice and beating the shit out of him. One black eye. A few good punches to the kidneys.
But he slams Jackson up against the locker instead. Puts a bruise on his face and cuts into the back of his neck. Derek gets blood under his fingernails, and spends a half-hour picking it out under the watchful eye of the office temp until Peter gets there. He really feels like scraping it out with his teeth.
When they’re finally in to see the principle, Derek mostly tunes them out. Jackson’s hurt, sure, but he hurt Stiles first. He hurt Stiles more. The sound Stiles’ head made when it hit the metal- he could have gotten really hurt, he could have died.
There’s a moment of silence when Derek realizes he said that out loud.

“No, I mean it. Look, it was pretty much over and then you got the ball and you started running. You scored and the tide just turned. And you scored again… and again. You were’t just the MVP of the game, you were a hero.”
“Sometimes I wake up in the middle of the night and my hands are warm with it. It’s thick and red. Other times it’ll be him. I can hear his voice, but it doesn’t sound like it’s coming from me. It’s… it’s not. He smells like damp leaves and wood and he tastes like smoke. When I reach out to touch him sometimes he’s there and I can feel his skin, hot and…. Other times he just turns to ash.”
Teen Wolf AU: Hallucinations? Possession? Another side to himself that he didn’t know? Maybe. To Stiles, Derek is very much real.
