the_water_clock: abstract painting (Untitled 1958 Coffee and Cinnamon)
Author: Clio
Title: Where We Ought To Be
Pairing: Derek Hale/Stiles Stilinski; also Scott McCall/Allison Argent
Rating: NC-17
Summary: Stiles Stilinski has just been created a magician, like his mother before him and her father before her, but now he's a little bit at loose ends. So at the suggestion of his mentor Deaton, he takes a position with a very young alpha werewolf, Derek Hale, to protect his pack while he heads into the city in search of a mate. That the stern Derek would be displeased by Stiles's unorthodox methods (wolves training with hunters? unheard of!) is to be expected. That Derek would start looking a little closer to home for his mate is more of a surprise.
Warning: (skip) None.

Notes: Written for the [profile] teenwolf_bb. Thanks very much to [personal profile] goss for choosing this story and doing such brilliant art which can be seen in this art post.
This is obviously a they're-still-werewolves AU, this time with more magic, less hiding from society, and all of the "I belong to the land" feels that this rural-bred girl could pour into it. Title is from the Shaker hymn "Simple Gifts."
THANK YOU to [personal profile] verity for cheerleading and shepherding this story from concept through its execution; I doubt it would exist without her help and support. Thanks also to [personal profile] affectingly for her valuable input and reassurance, to [personal profile] weepingnaiad for brainstorming a title with me, and also to everyone at Wincon who expressed enthusiasm for the story.

Maybe a houseful of werewolves would be the perfect re-entry to society. After all, how bad of an alpha could Derek Hale be? )
