ok so i decided to start a rec list and this will definitely build up after time but here we go:
Permanent fixture: STEREK au, no werewolfs. Derek is Scott’s older bother and Derek and Stiles watch doctor who and it’s just great and perfect and long and probably one of my favourite ever.
Just Act Normal: STEREK AU- stiles is an actor, has the same things as season two so i guess spoilers too. Derek’s a deputy.
Don’t Speak: STEREK- alpha pack involved, Stiles loses the ability to speak/hear/communicate/read etc and over time he builds it up and Derek kind of helps and it’s all pretty sweet but sad at the same time.
Baking My Way Into Your Heart: STEREK college/coffee shop AU. Stiles works at Derek’s normal coffee shop, and bakes him food and it’s sweet like the baked goods and it’s a good length and laura is perfect and yep, good read.
We Are So Intimately Rearranged: STEREK coffee shop AU. I read this ages ago but I remember loving it. Stiles’ senior year of high school with classic Derek.
Give Me Back My Bones: STEREK coffee shop AU. Read a while ago, absolutely loved it. ‘Derek meets Stiles on a Wednesday. He comes in for his usual cup of coffee and somehow walks out with hot chocolate, cinnamon on the top, and no idea what just happened there.’
No Refills: Sterek AU. Derek’s the owner of a cafe, Stiles always makes him have to take the late shifts. Long and sweet and funny and yep.
You Had Me At Latte Batman: Sterek AU. Another coffee shop fic, this time Derek makes art in Stiles’ coffee.
Voldemort and Jean Valjean: STEREK AU. Stiles always gives fake names at coffee shops. One of my favourites.
Hear His Alibies: STEREK AU. Derek burns the house down after the first fire, the Stilinski’s take him in. John POV. The sequel/companion fics ruined it for me personally as this is a sweeter side but yep.
The Epic Love Of Scott McCall: STEREK AU. Stiles is an angel.
Never Cage A Rabid Wolf: STEREK AU. Stiles gets sent to prison and his cell mate is Derek.
Prince Among Wolfs: STEREL AU. Derek has two werewolf kids and Stiles becomes his baby sitter.
On Building an IKEA Den for an Alpha Werewolf: STEREK. Prom dates and Ikea shopping basically.
Promises aren’t meant to be broken: STEREK. Laura and Stiles are best friends.
Truth or Dare: STEREK. Derek loses the ability to tell the truth aka everything he says is the opposite.
Stapp’s Ironical Paradox: STEREK i have no words for this i stayed up until 3 am and it was hard but this is perfect and wow
Here’s To The Static: STEREK. Derek’s a famous musician and Stiles works at a coffee shop, it’s pretty great yet it’s a WIP and I don’t usually read WIP. It gets update pretty regularly though.
Words To Me: STEREK. Derek’s in a famous band and Stiles is a cook, they text a lot. It’s a WIP again but there’s only one chapter left.
There Is a Brotherhood: STEREK. College AU, Frat prank wars, what more is there to say??
Daddy Do’s: STEREK AU. Stiles has skills when it comes to hair and Lydia is Derek’s daughter.
Derek Hale’s Very Bad, No Good (Nice) Summer: STEREK. Hale family is kind of like the Adams family if you’ve watched that film or whatever. Really good, kind of weird in places, but tbh it’s definitely one of my favourites. Also has a good Scott/Stiles friendship which a lot of fics lack. Scott is Derek’s brother in this fic.
Soulmates tbh: STEREK. I wish that this was longer as it has such an amazing plot. As the title suggests, Stiles and Derek are soulmates.
Call Me, Maybe (but not in the library): STEREK, college and wrong number fic kind of combined into two. It’s just a great fic idk how to describe it. it’s a college au with werewolfs which is rare.
Game On: STEREK and yet another college AU. really sweet and cute, I haven’t read it for a long time but yeah it was a good read.
Losers: STEREK. College, Derek and Stiles are roommates, Stiles is a jock and cool and Derek totally isn’t.
chantes une nouvelle chanson pour moi: STEREK. A mix of Harry Potter and Teen Wolf, my two favourite things so why wouldn’t I love this? Stiles is Hufflepuff and Derek is an exchange student from Beauxbatons. Really great, obviously.
Jump The Track: DESTIEL, probably the first supernatural fic i’ve loved. high school au, it’s pretty perfect.
Tangled Roots: DESTIEL. one of those known each other since kids, grow up together fics. it’s really sweet in places, i got a little confused with the time jumping. one of my faves, slow build.
America’s Next Top Chef: DESTIEL. This is great, makes you hungry like a lot especially when you’re reading it on an empty stomach. One complaint is that Castiel isn’t written completely in character.
The Breath Of All Things: DESTIEL. This was written beautifully, there were a couple of errors here and there but it was written as realistic as it could and i honestly really enjoyed it. Dean gets paralysed from the bottom down and has trouble with his hands, Castiel is a volunteer and he helps Dean.
Gay For a Day: DESTIEL. Castiel and Dean hate each other, Cas is Sam’s best friend. Yet Cas and Dean become room mates and then later own a sex line.
Try-Something Tuesday: DESTIEL. Really sweat fic where Dean’s an Elementary School teacher and Cas is a Liberian.
Crossroads State: DESTIEL. It is long but a good read. 50k. Castiel is a religious teacher I think? Dean’s a mechanic, as always, but a really good read and one of my favourites.
In This Secluded Spot I Respond As I Wouldn’t Dare Elsewhere: DESTIEL. If you’re in the need for a pick me up high school AU, this is definitely the one for you. It’s the perfect mix of fluff and angst, yet still makes you happy at the end. Does include serious bulling if that’s a trigger for you. Sam isn’t mentioned, which is kind of weird. Set in 1995.
Your Call Cannot Be Completed As Dialed: DESTIEL. Yet another destiel because apparently that’s all I read lately. Or, I’m waiting for more sterek fics to be made; who knows. This is the text the wrong number cliché kind of thing but it’s written perfectly, especially the characters. It says it’s not complete but I’m 99% sure that it is. Even if it is still a WIP it could easily be left there and you would still fill fulfilled. Anyway, good read.
Lovingly Crafted and Tenderly Packaged: DESTIEL. Castiel owns his own company where he designs his own t-shirts, Sam messages him asking if he can make one for Dean.
Twist and Shout: DESTIEL. Okay, warning: this is perhaps one of the saddest things I’ve ever read, however it’s also the best. To not spoil it, here’s the author’s description: What begins as a transforming love between Dean Winchester and Castiel Novak in the summer of 1965 quickly derails into something far more tumultuous when Dean is drafted in the Vietnam War. Though the two both voice their relationship is one where saying goodbye is never a real truth, their story becomes fraught with the tragedy of circumstance. In an era where homosexuality was especially vulnerable, Twist and Shout is the story of the love transcending time, returning over and over in its many forms, as faithful as the sea.
Sexual Harassment in the Workplace: Gallavich.Mickey just needs to keep his head down and stay out of trouble at his new job. Still trouble always manages to find him and when it takes the form of his red haired boss, Mickey’s not sure he can resist even if he wanted to. (Gallavich AU)
The Halfway House: Gallavich. This is just really lovely. After his mum took off, Ian sort of expected he’d wind up in foster care. What he didn’t expect was to meet a sort of dirty boy called Mickey Milkovich there.
A/S/L: Gallavich. AU, where Ian and Mickey meet online but become best friends in real life too.
You Are Inked On My Skin Long Before We Begin: Gallavich. Soulmate AU because every fandom needs at least one good soulmate AU.
Take Me In: Gallavich. Mickey’s Dad finds out about Mickey being gay and even though Ian’s not there, but he finds the Gallaghers are still willing to take Mickey in.
Bullets, Blunts and Baseball: Gallavich. I’d like to say it’s canon up until mid season 4? but it’s all a big blur for me. Ian Gallagher and Mickey Milkovich have been best friends since Little League, everyone on the South Side knew that. They didn’t know that it was bound to become something more.
Kaleidoscope: Mickey Milkovich is a history teacher. Ian Gallagher is a student in one of his classes. Hijinks will ensue!
Dancing All Over My Soul: Gallavich, High school au. Mickey knew his crush was pointless. He had basically fallen head over heels for the fucker the first time his eyes passed over him. With his fiery red hair, eyes greener and clearer than emeralds, and perfect, freckle dusted skin, yeah – Mickey had it bad. Ian fucking Gallagher. Fucking, fucking, Ian Gallagher. Fuck.
ah, so last summer I had a slight love for both Snarry and Drarry fics and before that I loved dramoine. So whilst I haven’t saved or bookmarked my favourites I’m going to search until I recognize some and rec them here.
The Paradox of Existence: Snarry, As I just explained I haven’t read this for nearly a year. But, Harry goes back in time to yano when his parents and snape were at school and teaches them, so it’s a reverse role ITS VERY COMPLICATED TO EXPLAIN BUT VERY GOOD.
more to come but yeah, i’ve read a lot more fics than this it’s justi don’t save the links. so when i come across a link and go ‘yeah, i remember this’ i add it on. or if i read a new one.
