I started this a while back but idn
t hold my interest because of the whole hold my interest because of the whole thing It s really confusing But since I Cavalier A Tale of Chivalry Passion and Great Houses don t like leaving something unfinished I read it to the end After a while I was able to look past the wierdness and it was enjoyable Rounded up to four I would have liked it better if there was sex So I was really unsure about this one at the start For two reasons 1 John and Chris being married was just weird and itidn t work for me At all 2 I get that a big part of this fic was the pack feelz All the touching and rubbing and snuggling together was fine but Scott and Stiles showering together What the actual fuck Once I got over the halfway mark though I really started to enjoy it Either I just got used to all the pack stuff or it wasn t as in your face I m not sure which I adore the fics where Derek and Stiles work as a team and communicate well I enjoyed all their page time together even when they were just sitting in the same room Loveknot Welcome to Tyler doing their own thing This is a very slow burn but I enjoyed the wait and it never feltragged out to me So I m just going to pretend like the shower scene never happened because for serious that shit was just all kinds of wrong 25 starsOthers said it already long fic good storyline puppy piles galore Sterek cuddles from page one too So why am I not gushing all over the place First of all for 99% of the story the cuddles were exactly that sweet and tender moments of friendship Not once One Step Further does anyone hint at between Derek and Stiles okay there are the subtlest hints if you pay close attention but never once from Stiles or Derek This made the turn around at the en A Teen Wolf StilesDerek fanficIt s a Teen Wolf story than a Sterek fanfic I would say Sterek happens very late in the story its hot as hell yes but still it happens at the end very lateIts a loooong fanfic too so if you like to read about mystery killings in the Teen Wolf world you ll probably like this oneI m mostly all about Sterek though so I can t give it than 3 stars but the writing is awesomeThere are puppy piles going on Ion t The Dreamers do puppy piles andon t really like the whole Stiles as the pack mom kind of character either But oh well Stiles got his Derek in the end and that s all that matters no DNF 60 cause life s too short to be reading stories that just aren t for meI m generally a huge fan of fics with strong pack feels and I enjoy the occasional puppy pile but there were moments in this story where it just feltweird Like when Stiles and Scott showered together WHAT Umm no thanks If anyone s going to be getting naked and wet with Stiles it better amn well be DerekThere were way too many touchy feely pack moments which was super strange because I idn t actually feel like any of them particularly liked each other Again weird In one scene Jackson is upset and Derek suddenly swoops in and cradles him like a little kidwhich I m sure in some circumstances this would have been sweet and moving but here it was just random and awkward There was even a when Derek was crying on the floor seemingly for no substantial reason and Stiles held him
close for and my only reaction to this was a for hours and my only reaction to this was a it up Princess and b Blergh Which is a PROBLEM because I read this stuff for the Sterek moments and if a Sterek moment makes me roll my eyes and gag then I just ain t feeling it The aspect I loved yep I loved something about this story HOORAY view spoilerI love the idea that the pack are strategically acuiring the entire town or the important parts and positioning themselves in jobs that benefit the packs evelopment security and standing Very smart hide spoiler As just a Teen Wolf the After Years story this fic knocks it out of. Teen Wolf AUThe Pack after college graduate school and the starting of careers comes back to Beacon Hills No. Thrown their way To ensure their safety they have hatched and slowly implemented a grand schemeplan of total integration of themselves in all areas of importance that I found absolutely ingeniousOn top of that setup this was also really about showing how much the pack has changed They are a well oiled machine with Derek at the helm and Stiles as his second They love each other protect each other help and comfort each other They are efinitely exclusive insular and codependent and they know it and they La suma de los días don t give a rat s ass whooesn t like it You get to witness their lives and how they attack everyday problems as well as supernatural crisesThis veers a bit off from canon but one can easily let some things go and embrace others For me there was a particularly shocking pairing that I couldn t wrap my head around and still Traces don t Also the Sheriff is surprisingly inenial about a lot of things and that was eyebrow raising since I haven t come across that beforeWhat I appreciated the most was the mature setting because we C don t see it that often They re no longer teenagers They ve gone to college and have had relationships and now have careers and are thinking about having babies Most impressive to me was Stiles There s no magic but he s a grown man a leader who s shown he s not just a mere weak human and is ruthless in protecting those under his care There s obvious weight and responsibility to that and I liked itSeveral have scoffed that this is not a romance but I beg toiffer It s true that the small amount of smex that The Greek's Convenient Wife Harleuin Presents does occuroesn t happen til the end and there is no pining or cluelessness or angst in that area Instead I felt the
WHOLE STORY WAS ROMANTIC GRANTED IT story was romantic Granted it in no way overt At the core and throughout this fic is Derek and Stiles It s about their partnership and bond and reliance on one another They are a cohesive unit that runs the pack together Their connection is so strong and so in sync they know each other inside and out and I thought it was amazing to witnessOf course I was Die molekulare Manufraktur disappointed that the obvious inevitability of these twoidn t happen at the
Start And Continue Throughoutand continue throughout have to suspend belief that in and amongst all the puppy piles the platonic intimacy and nurturing and supporting and caring and petting that Stiles and Derek took this long to actually realize and voice their feelings In fact it s uite a shocker it Missing Assumed Dead didn t happen sooner but I thought the author explained the reasoning behind that very well So I guess this is my longwinded argument that if you re ok with very little smexiness I know most of us aren t including myself and are looking for aifferent but no less poignant and smart take on their epic love then this The Mask of the Enchantress / The Secret Woman does a prettyarn impressive job of that Well to me it I've been thinking...: reflections, prayers, and meditations for a meaningful life did So much of Stiles life is intertwined with Derek s in ways it isn t with the rest of the pack They carry each other s secrets and yes their hidden fears and buried worries their flaws and cracks he knows that he wasn t on this trip alone they took it together him and Derek one moment gesture word at a time i read this when i was out of my mind so iidn t write a reviewthis strikes me as a particular misfortune because apparently i recommended it to my editor and she loved it but all i can remember is a truly staggering amount of platonic cuddling that vaguely creeped me out on account of there having to be some serious hive mind level wholesomeness for like 12 gorgeous men and women to pile into a king size bed in their underwear every night without once someone becoming either inappropriately moist or inconveniently swollenbecause you put me in a bed with that many attractive people at once and i m sayin mistakes will be made.

ACTION AS A STEREK ROMANCE ITAs a Sterek romance it missed the mark for me That part of the story Bonded by Sin didn t come into things at ALL until the last 10% No lingering glances no mention of pushedown or growing feelings There was a lot of touchy feely stuff but it was in a wolfy way not in a lusty way Then suddenly in the last 10% Stiles realizes he s in love with Derek who reciprocates they have the smexitimes and that s it I m all for slow burn but this story had no real burn at all It wasn t a big shocker when they got together I just wish it had happened sooner Ok so here is the review you should read if you are interested in this book For real it is totally why I read this bookHow to write a review 101This book is all about Pack Seriously this is an education on what a family truly isIn order to thoroughly enjoy this book you need to picture Stiles a bit Hezbollah different I think that if you can go into it knowing that things happenedifferently and the Pack is Honored Guest Stories different you will be turning pages like a freakFirst off they are all grown up Stiles is still a bit himself but he is so fucking controlled and responsible andedicated that it felt a bit like a struggle to grasp it Once I Orcs et Gobelins did I found this new world an amazing place to beThis is a strong and grounded Pack Functioning It was uite a beautiful thing to seeThe romance was there but not in your face of an oh yeah wow pretty and hurry up It might have almost been as good as the in your face oh my God just face the music kind of romance It totally made sense at the end and was so worth the waitI knocked a for the Sheriff he was written poorly and portrayed poorly I think everyone in the Pack should read this one There is a podfic I am going to listen to it very soon Reread 1272015Definitely liked it the second time through Definitely a veryifferent fic There s action and a few creepy baddies to enjoy and yet at the same time I get a feeling ofremoteness while reading it I Florence of Arabia dunno maybe it s that there s just so much infoumpage About characters their past and werewolf social structure It s interesting but I Guns of the Timberlands don t want to read about it right in the middle of an important scene Whenever that happens in a book or fic I picture the characters standing around picking at their nails while a voice over goes blah blah blahGotta say I was yet again shocked by the identity of the Sheriff s significant other but itid cause a lot of plotty goodness and some interesting character evelopmentThe romance isn t overt by any means but it s there Derek and Stiles are practically a pack of two within the pack which includes Derek Stiles Scott Allison Jackson Lydia
and Danny The first time through I was amazed at how manyDanny The first time through I was amazed at how many cuddles you can fit into one fic but this time I was amazed at how much cuddling there was between Derek and Stiles And nary a boner until the endamazingI would truly love to see a short retelling of this fic through the eyes of a regular citizen of Beacon Hills if such a person exists With all the hugging kissing rubbing and sleepovers they must be convinced this group of friends is really a m nage sept Amazing amounts of
PUPPY PILES OTHER THAN THAT I M HAVING Apiles Other than that I m having a time remembering it Derek and Stiles have an extremely close relationship but there s no pining or being oblivious they just seem to suddenly get togetherNot bad just not my thing 45 StarsThis was efinitely ifferent I ve got to give kudos to the author on this because for me this was a well thought out story about the gang ten years from now It was etailed and meticulous and the pack is stronger than ever They have learned a lot gone through a lot and are wiser and seasoned to handle pretty much anything that Thing's gotten less complicated after all this timeBased on a kink meme prompt that grew legs and got seriou.
