Title: Your Soul on a Plate
Pairing: Scott McCall/Allison Argent
Rating: PG
Summary: Scott and Stiles have been cooking together forever so of course they'd be competing in the same season—but there's also this girl with dimples. Allison never had chef friend until Lydia found her, seconds after arriving at the competition—but there's also this boy with brown eyes.
(A Top Chef AU.)
Length: 10,000 words
Notes: Thank you as always for these reality competition AUs to [personal profile] honestys_easy for the brainstorming and the beta and the general cheerleading. I swear, I came up with the idea for the next Top Chef to be in Boston before I knew they were actually filming there this summer.
(Of course the dorm challenge wouldn't be at the ol' alma mater—they haven't let anyone film there since Love Story—but I couldn't resist.)

Title: Quadratic Functions
Pairing: Derek Hale/Lydia Martin/Erica Reyes/Stiles Stilinski
Rating: NC-17
Summary: It started because when they asked Stiles what he wanted for his birthday he said, "Sex." Which, being cash-strapped students, was something they could give him. Planning for the rest of their birthdays, though—that took a little more doing. (But it was still sex. Sex all the way down.)
Warning: Dirty talk, if you're not into that.
Length: 22,000 words
Notes: In the same college AU OT4 as Completing the Square. The first two chapters are based on prompts from [profile] nightreveals, [personal profile] aliassmith and [personal profile] radioaches; the third is an idea from my tumblr fic Inches on the Reel to Reel; the fourth is all Beyoncé's fault. The biggest thanks go to pinetreekate, who helped immensely in getting this to look like a story and not a series of things that happened one time, and for getting me past some last-minute concerns.

We should do this every time )

Title: The Maternal Instincts of Betas
Pairing: Teen Wolf: Scott McCall/Allison Argent
Rating: NC-17
Summary: Scott expected to go through junior year alpha-omega claiming as an observer and maybe find his mate later in life, like most betas. Then he met Allison, and it wasn't just his love life that changed, but his whole future.
Warning: (skip) A/B/O verse. Mentions of past and future mpreg.

Length: 18,000 words
Notes: Like rest of this mini-verse, this is grade-A Romantic Fantasy Sugar that presents instinctive mating-for-life at seventeen (or so) as entirely unproblematic. There's a lot of overt mutual consent going on, but I know some people feel that mating as a concept is always already dub-con, so note that this really is an omegaverse story, including preset roles from birth, a biological imperative for mating (heat or rut) and biological differences between alphas and omegas, and all of those are present in the story as well as the mating-for-life and the tentacle-like ovipositor. There isn't any actual mpreg on the page, but there are mentions of past mpreg (the sheriff) and future mpreg (Scott and Stiles). And as will become clear in this story, betas in this mini-verse aren't just "regular" humans, but a blend of intersex and pansexual, and there are fewer of them than alphas and omegas.
Thank you pinetreekate for the incredible beta and for holding my hand when I realized this story was going to be much longer and more involved than I had anticpated.
This is the final story in the Claiming is Confusing 'verse, and closing the 'verse is bittersweet, like all endings. Thanks to the mods at the a/b/o ladies challenge for giving me a place to think about omegaverse femslash, which led to everything else; to the the Wincon'12 femslash panel for the idea of the ovipositor for alpha and beta females being tentacle-like; to Kaister for commenting in the Derek story that I should write one about Scott and Allison; to all of you who offered help and support along the way; and to everyone who has read the stories in this 'verse. The response has been amazing, and I can't tell you how much I appreciate it.

I just want to make it easier for other kids )

Title: You Make Me Live
Pairing: Gen friendship Stiles&Scott&Lydia&Allison
Rating: PG
Summary: Scott, Lydia, Allison and Stiles spend a week at a cabin by a lake in the woods and nothing freaky happens. Maybe this is just the difference between high school and college. That, and all the missing each other like crazy stuff.
Length: 1800 words
Notes: Chock full of BFF feels. Written for verity for GENuary, and therefore a smidge late! There are blink and you'll miss it references to Scott/Allison, Stiles/Derek and Lydia/Erica (neither Derek nor Erica are in the story) in case that spoils your gen. In the same timeline as the baking & waiting, dancing & hiking and distract series, so not really AU except for the Erica not being dead part.

Title: Pulling on All Your Threads
Pairing: Lydia Martin/Erica Reyes
Rating: PG
Summary: Lydia has no doubt in her mind that she's going to win this design competition. She just needs to keep from being distracted by one of her competitors. Not that Erica's trying to distract her; she wants to win, too. Getting Lydia's attention is just a bonus. (A Project Runway AU)
Warning: No warning necessary.
Length: 8800 words
Notes: THANK YOU a million times to honestys_easy for the encouragement and the suggestions and all of her help. The first two parts were posted back in October for TW Femslash Week; thanks to everyone who read and encouraged me to press on. Now I'm happily posting the entire finished story for the first TW Femslash 4FEMSLASH!

Title: Martin and Reyes
Pairing: Lydia Martin/Erica Reyes (Teen Wolf)
Rating: NC-17
Summary: The Alliance is the first line of defense against vampires and other misbehaving magical creatures, and agent Lydia Martin takes her responsibility very seriously. Erica Reyes, on the other hand, likes to play it fast and loose. But with the return of Deucalion, werewolf turned vampire, and a mole betraying Alliance missions to the vamps, they'll have to find a way to work together (if the rest of their team doesn't knock their heads together first).
Warning: (skip) Canon-typical violence; one character working through post-traumatic stress issues.

Notes: Written for [profile] teenwolf_bb and you simply must check out the amazing art post! Thanks so much to [personal profile] paynesgrey and the mods at twbb for their patience with my unfinished draft.
[personal profile] radioaches suggested a SHIELD AU, and I'd just seen The Heat, so here we are in supernatural buddy cop land! Thank you to [personal profile] verity for all the encouragement along the way and help with the plotting, [personal profile] ali_wildgoose for a key suggestion early on, and [profile] bononoh for the super excellent beta!

Title: Arrives Without a Suitcase
Pairing: Lydia/Erica, Scott/Allison, Stiles/Derek
Rating: NC-17
Summary: Stiles finds himself pregnant with his fourth at the same time his friends Erica, Scott and Allison are all having their first. So of course they not only want his advice, but tell him he should write a guide to pregnancy that doesn't assume all omegas are passive and docile, and remembers that betas can carry children, too. To his surprise, he finds he's up for the challenge.
Length: 23,000 words
Notes: Written for the [community profile] abo_bigbang. Super awesome art by Verity!!!!! Title from the Beatles song "Lady Madonna."
A companion piece to The Migratory Patterns of Omegas, The Mating Rituals of Alphas, and soon-to-be-posted The Maternal Instincts of Betas. This entire mini-verse wouldn't exist without Verity's encouragement and support, so all the thanks go to her and all the blame to me.
Like rest of this mini-verse, this is grade-A Romantic Fantasy Sugar that presents instinctive mating-for-life at seventeen (or so) as entirely unproblematic. There's a lot of overt mutual consent going on, but I know some people feel that mating as a concept is always already dub-con, so note that this really is an omegaverse story, including preset roles from birth, a biological imperative for mating (heat or rut) and biological differences between alphas and omegas, and all of those are present in the story as well as the mating-for-life. Also as will become clear betas in this mini-verse aren't just "regular" humans, but a blend of intersex and pansexual, and there are fewer of them than alphas and omegas.

Title: Couldn't Have One Without the Other
Pairing: Lydia Martin/Erica Reyes, Derek Hale/Stiles Stilinski
Rating: NC-17 (eventually)
Summary: The little town of Beacon that weathered the Long Winter is growing with the arrival of new teacher Miss Laura Hale, who's come to prepare ambitious students Stiles and Lydia for their upcoming college exams. Miss Hale's brother and sister, Derek and Erica, have also come to town to start a horse ranch. But is it their beautiful horses, or the Hale siblings themselves, who have turned Stiles and Lydia's heads?
Length: 68,000 words
Notes: If the summary doesn't give it away to you, it's a Little House-style AU, suggested by katemonster and verity on tumblr one day. Thanks so much to verity and heidi for beta'ing this beast of a story, and to them, evil_erato and stina for cheerleading me during the writing process!

Title: Kiss Me, I'm a Lycanthrope
Pairing: Teen Wolf: Derek Hale/Stiles Stilinski
Rating: PG
Summary: Once Stiles figured out how easy it was to get gifts personalized for werewolves, Derek started drowning in cheap mugs and bumper stickers with little paws on them. Derek was more confused than anything else—at least until that final present.
Length: 1400 words
Notes: So Verity and I were talking about some nsfw art that includes Derek in a "World's #1 Alpha" apron and I started riffing and now here we are. Established relationship fic if that's not clear. Contains a reference to pregnancy left deliberately vague—it's up to you if it's mpreg or a surrogate.

Title: The Chance to Come Through
Pairing: Derek Hale/Stiles Stilinski
Rating: PG
Summary: Derek's auditioning because Laura talked him into it, though he's not sure a ballet dancer is really what a televised dance competition is looking for. Stiles is auditioning because it seemed like a fun thing to do with Scott on a Saturday morning, and maybe he'd get to dance with Comfort, his favorite female hip hop dancer. They both end up getting a lot more than they were looking for.
(A So You Think You Can Dance AU.)
Length: 7600 words
Notes: Written for the Teen Wolf Spring Fling, and thanks to everyone organizing that fest. Thanks also to [personal profile] honestys_easy for her help and enthusiasm in working out this AU and giving it the once-over, and the creator of the original photo set that started me thinking about this in the first place.
Also features Derek and Stiles quoting Center Stage at each other (since the quotes are self-conscious they should be easy to spot) as well as a line from the song "Cabaret." Title from "The Music and the Mirror" from A Chorus Line.

Title: Distracting
Pairing: Scott McCall/Allison Argent
Rating: NC-17
Summary: Allison likes a little danger. (Or, why Scott and Allison were in such a rush to leave pack meeting.)
Warning: (skip) Allison and Scott are playing with the idea of Scott being a dangerous creature and Allison ceding control to him, but it's just play—their encounter was fully planned out ahead of time, as becomes clear at the end. That said, Scott is fully wolfed out and playing it up while they're having sex.
Length: 1000 words
Notes: Written for the "consent play" square on my [community profile] kink_bingo card, and suggested by Scott and Allison giggling about bestiality to Stiles. (See notes for more.) Companion fic to Distracted (Stiles/Derek) and Distractions (Lydia/Erica). Thanks so much to [personal profile] verity for the awesome beta!

These encounters were too special to tell everyone about )

Title: Completing the Square
Pairing: Lydia/Erica/Stiles/Derek
Rating: NC-17
Summary: College AU: So Erica maybe has a giant crush on her math tutor, and her buddy Stiles maybe has a giant crush on this chemistry grad student. When they discover that their crushes know each other, they decide to get some of their own. It's then that things get really complicated. (Or really awesome, depending on who you talk to.)
Warning: none!
Length: 8000 words
Notes: So [personal profile] aliassmith posted this pretty thing on tumblr, and then [profile] nightreveals started riffing on it on twitter, and then I said, "Is it okay if I write this?" and here we are, a college AU OT4.
Thanks as always to [personal profile] verity for her general awesomeness and also beta'ing and [personal profile] radioaches and [personal profile] earlofcardigans for the cheerleading!!

Title: The Mating Rituals of Alphas
Pairing: Derek Hale/Stiles Stilinski
Rating: NC-17
Summary: Sure, Derek was born an alpha but he's never been good at all that dominant behavior that's expected of him, and even though the adults around him tell him to be himself, he worries that he'll never claim an omega if he doesn't get it together. But his omega actually already claimed him, years ago.
Warning: (skip) Omegaverse. Mentions of past and future mpreg.

Length: 10,000 words
Notes: More omegaverse! If you want the world building, please see The Migratory Patterns of Omegas (Lydia/Erica) but basically mating season is in the spring of junior year of high school, and most alphas and omegas claim then. There isn't any actual mpreg in this story, but there are mentions of past mpreg (the sheriff and Derek's dad) and future mpreg (Laura's mate and Stiles).
Thank you SO MUCH to [personal profile] verity for her endless and untiring support and her lovely beta job, and for holding my hand through writing this particular trope. Also huge thanks to [personal profile] affectingly and [personal profile] radioaches for their enthusiasm and everyone who held my hand through the writing of this story.

Rating: PG-13
Summary: Just because Derek is very patiently waiting doesn't mean he can't court with housewares in the meantime.
Warning: (skip) None! Some housewares porn.
Length: 1900 words
Notes: Derek's POV on Scott McCall Is an Awesome Friend and Do You Want It On Your Biscuits, Baby? Prompted by Katemonster giving me literal puppy dog eyes when I said I should write more second base fic, which this is. Title from "The Waiting" by Tom Petty. Thanks to [personal profile] verity, as usual, for giving this the once-over.

He knew that eighteen was an arbitrary number decided on by some people in Sacramento before he was even born, that it wasn't like Stiles was going to magically become a better decision maker on April 9th than he'd been on April 8th. )

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.
Length: 20,400 words
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? )

Warning: (skip) Fisting!
Length: 500 words
Notes: Written for [personal profile] affectingly in her little book o'porn at Wincon. Short, pornish, and really about what happens when a girl fists another girl.

Notes: Posted some time ago on tumblr as "In Which Scott Is an Awesome Friend, Mostly." Revised slightly to be in line with "Do You Want It on Your Biscuits, Baby?" Thanks so much to everyone who read this on tumblr the first time around; your enthusiasm gave me the confidence to keep writing Teen Wolf!
