yea yo i’m gonna be needing all the fic though where Stiles and Derek are doing their usual run around each other, pulling pigtails and throwing bugs on each other or whatever kids do these days to show their gross undying affection for the other while ignoring it completely and deliberately.
And it’s gotten pretty bad by now, but everything sort of comes down a bit after Stiles goes to college and they’re not around one another nearly as much but then that means when they are around each other it’s palpable. Like neighbors for miles suddenly go into spontaneous heat from the level of pheromone they’re throwing at each other.
And it’s pretty gross how desperate they are for each other it’s like they both decided to take vows of celibacy for the greater suffering or something. But maybe they keep thinking about their friendship, cos that’s what they are now, they’ve talked about it and everything. They labelled it.
And things between them have always been volatile and it’s good now and it’d be complicated otherwise and they totally don’t want to bone, it’s just a crush or something.
So they ignore it. But then one night they’re both at the gallery opening for Danny’s new show. He’s a photographer and he focuses a lot on undermining gender stereotypes.
And his new show features both Stiles and Derek, unbeknownst to the other, because Danny is a bastard and still pretty pissed about the whole werewolf thing in high school.
All the photos are of men and women in state of undress. And the ones of Stiles he’s, i dunno, wearing pieces of formal wear and dripping wet in most of them. The way Stiles gets where he doesn’t know he’s attractive so he’s trying to act goofy but he mostly just looks lewd. LEWD. And then there’s one with him in a bathtub wearing very very little, very very little and thin and white and he might as well not be wearing anything.
And Stiles knows everyone is going to see this shit but he’s really proud of them because Danny is REALLY good and the show itself is important but he knows Derek is going to see them and he nearly works himself into a panic two or eight times thinking about being there with Derek.
And then they are and Derek is just staring at them in SHOCK and Stiles is hiding because no way.
But then Stiles finds DEREK’S photos and he’s wearing women’s clothing. Or well, he’s wearing women’s lingerie. Which is so much worse. or better.
because Derek Hale in fishnet stockings and a pink lace garter. Derek Hale in beta blue lace panties and nothing else. DEREK IN A CORSET. And pictures of him in heavy make up and looking like the best drag queen Stiles has ever met. And he’s met a LOT.
And Derek didn’t know how he managed to get talked into doing it in the first place. But Derek owed Danny a favor and he was coming to collect and he was oddly persuasive and okay he probably casually mentioned how much Stiles was stoked about this photo project.
And like then eventually they meet up in the middle of the gallery and just sort of stare at each other and then Derek grabs Stiles hand and starts dragging him off and Stiles slams into his back in his haste to comply.
ANd then they fuck.
