Derek Hale’s Seduction Techniques (PG-13, 6613) ★★★★★★
It doesn’t sit well with Stiles, the thing at the police station and with Erica. It niggles at him from the back of his mind, screaming PAY ATTENTION TO ME. Because Derek’s apparently familiar enough with flirting to do it successfully, like it’s something that comes naturally to him, but what kind of broody misanthropic guy flirts?

His name was Stiles Stilinski. He was older than 21, but younger than 25. His dad was the sheriff and he was a student at Beacon Hills Community College. He came into the shop every couple days; always after three, but never past five. He always said hello to Laura, always bought one bouquet, and always spent five minutes trying to make Derek smile with as many puns as he could come up with by the time Derek handed him his receipt. Derek may or may not be in love with him.
Can’t be Hateful, Gotta be Grateful (PG-13, 6260) ★★★
“Be cool, Dad, we’ve decided to con Grandma.” (Or, the one where the Stilinski men drag Derek to Thanksgiving dinner at Grandma’s and she gets the
