There are things you can’t fight - acts of God. You see a hurricane coming, you get out of the way. But when you’re in a Jaeger, you can finally fight the hurricane. You can win.
Jurassic Park, 1993 / Pacific Rim, 2013
This is just the greatest thing I’ve seen all day.
let’s talk about:
bonds of friendship, love and brotherhood (1805)
If anyone asks the trio, they don’t really have a single answer they all can agree on. They’re prone to giving each other blank looks, wordlessly asking, ‘When did we get to be such good friends?’.
When you ask Scott and Stiles about their friendship on the other hand, they’ll both regale the story of their first meeting. But when you ask about their friendship with Derek? They frown-smile and shrug good naturedly.
"It just… happened," is Scott’s best explanation.
Stiles’ explanation is far more long winded, starting from the first time they met Derek in the woods all the way down to present day before winding up with a sweep of his hands.
"Somewhere along the way we just became friends."
And Derek? He’d shrug in an non-answer, carrying on with whatever it is he is doing, but his features would soften and quiet private smile would creep onto his lips.
Maybe the how or the why or the when are not the important questions. What’s more important is that it is. That these three are bound to each other in ways which go beyond the simple label of ‘friendship’ and ‘brothers’.
yea so I suddenly need fic where stiles and derek accidentally are imprinted on by ducklings and they get very upset if the two aren’t together and derek, stiles discovers, is a giant brooding marshmallow.
This fic would definitely involve one or more of the pack walking in on Derek and Stiles sharing a bath with the ducklings. It would need to, obviously.
The ducklings chasing Derek around the loft.
Fighting each other to sleep in Stiles’ lap.
Yup. I need this.
hi i hope it’s okay that i wrote you a thing! it was meant to be a short thing but it turned into a very long thing and that’s why it took a billion hours
Thursday evening, Stiles and Derek are walking back to their cars after one of Scott’s not-quite-mandatory pack dinners, shoulders brushing companionably. “I like it when Kira picks the movie,” he says. “She has good taste. Duh, she’s dating Scott, but –“ Peep. “What the hell was that?”
He and Derek both look around, first at each other, then at the grass around them. They’re on the sidewalk in between Scott’s front yard and his neighbor’s, spinning around slowly as they hear it again. Peep/.
“What the hell?” Peep. Peep.
It’s getting louder and they’re no close to finding the peeping thing
“Stiles…” Stiles turns around to see Derek crouched down beside a sedan parked on the street. He’s peering under the car at what looks like a big pile of leaves.
“What is it?”
Derek rolls his eyes and looks over his shoulder. “Yeah. Ducks. Like…seven ducks.”
“Babies?” Stiles practically bounces closer to Derek and kneels down on the grass, peeking under the car at the brown and yellow little heads popping up out of the leaves and sticks. “Five, six…seven! Oh man. Hi little babies. Where’s your mom? Derek, where’s their mom?”
Derek stares at him. “Am I a duck whisperer? I don’t know where their mom is.” He straightens back up, dusting off the knees of his jeans. “I’m sure she’s around. She wouldn’t just leave them.” He takes a few steps back and peers up and down the street, looking for any sign of her. He hears Stiles make a muffled sound and looks down. Two tiny ducklings are sitting on his left foot.
“Derek,” Stiles says through barely contained laughter, “I think you just became their mommy.” A third duckling hops clumsily into Stiles’ lap with a satisfied little peep. “Oh,” he says, looking down as the rest of the ducklings scamper out from under the car and start crawling all over the both of them. “I think we’re parents.”
These were the stories that stayed with you, that meant something, even if you were too small to understand why.
Sterek AU: Stiles shows Derek the plan he has set up to get rid of the Nogitsune before it completely takes over Stiles’ mind and body. Derek asks an irrelevant question that is actually pretty important.
Modern Merthur AU
After telling Merlin that they have to hide their secret relationship and pretend to see other people, a jealous Arthur is beginning to regret it.
(a.k.a. I had to use those amazing Quirke scenes)
