I love reading about other people with insomnia. Makes me feel like saying, "HA HA MOTHERFUCKERS."

Anyway, Stiles has insomnia and Derek sleeps over a lot. And then other stuff happens but WHO GIVES A SHIT THEY MAKE OUT.

Anyway, I read this twice and I really like it. Stiles isn't as funny as I prefer, but there is so much angsty goodness.

Anyway, there is some stuff that I probably would've understood more if I watched the show, but I don't think it inhibited my enjoyment.

Loved it, again!

"Then Stiles becomes something like a fucking teddy bear to a big bad werewolf who's too stubborn to admit that he never actually grew up...

This is why the age difference never bothers me. He never really did grow up did he?

"Every morning we will wake up and experience what happens in that day, and throughout each and every one of those days—every single one, from now until whenever, but if I have my way, whenever will be a long time or prefer

Lots of Derek and Stiles cuddles and not very much talking. It felt like nobody was communicating in this one. I get the title, I really do, I spent ages shouting at Stiles to just say something to his dad and Derek to just talk to Stiles. This is sweet but I found it a bit frustrating and a little anticlimactic tbh.

Liked this one but I missed Stiles humor and his rambling. Still a good read though.

Stiles has insomnia and Derek stays over at his house and helps him get some sleep. They do other interesting things too. Ahem.

Action driven Sterek with Alpha pack clash, Peter being difficult, uneasy hunter issues and sweet falling in love. Oh yeah, 'Hey Dad, guess what?' moments to entertain and ahhhs.

4 Stars

Stiles suffers from insomnia, but he seems to be able to sleep on nights when a certain Alpha crawls through his window and snuggles beside him.

I’m a big fan of any Sterek plot that involves these two sleeping next to each other. I especially enjoy when it progresses slowly from we’re-barely-on-good-terms, to whoops-we’re-in-love. *sigh*

The setting is post season 2 canon and there is a decent big-bad plot -- with the evil Alpha pack causing havoc and pretty much asking for their asses to

Stiles and Derek hate each other, right? Stiles isn't sleeping, it is implied that Derek really isn't either. Until one night Derek hops through Stiles' window and with out preamble or discussion just share Stiles' bed for the night.

I like the Sterek's where Derek and Stiles start out not liking each other, having an adversarial / allied relationship like they do on the show, and this fic provides that with some angst and fairly IC depictions. It also has a nice tension building betwe

takes a while, and you can't tell me nothing about a teenage boy whose sex drive is lower than a nun's, but i got the biggest competency boner when stiles came into his own and started delegating like a boss.

A Sterek fanfic set just after the end of season 2 of the show.

This is certainly much more the emo version of Stiles from the end of season 2 than in any other story I've yet read. But that just served to make Derek's influence on him--calming him down and helping him sleep--just that much more endearing.

I enjoyed how much Sheriff Stilinski is in this one. I'm always a sucker for those delightfully awkward introduce-the-werewolf-boyfriend-to-the-dad scenes, and the ones in this story were lovely

Hmm, what to say about this Sterek. It was okay, but nothing mind-blowing. There were parts I didn’t really like.

In this one Stiles has insomnia.


This could have been great, but it never focusses on this. It just is. Stiles is tired, but can function fine apparently. I would have liked it if it was a bit more fleshed out. It is mentioned that he often doesn’t sleep for several days in a row, but that was it, too much tell and no show. It was confusing.

Stiles was not that authentic in this story.

This is one for actual Teen Wolf(series) fans, I don't think it works reading it as semi-original.

There's some great moments between Derek and Stiles and I loved their unspoken need for each other and how it developed.

The plot has plenty of action to it but also falls into the giant bear trap (wolf-trap?) of fanfic by relying on you knowing the characters and cannon.
Too often I was wondering who people were and feeling the lack of descriptions, alphas? Peter was resurrected? how? what? true fan

3.5 stars. Very competent writing but I didn't really feel it so rating not higher. I did like the ending.

A Teenwolf and Stiles/Derek fanfic.

And what a great one too!

My fave fanfics are always the ones that stay as close to the actual Teenwolf plot, well, added some Sterek awesomeness, of course, and this fic really does that.

The storylines revolve around the new Alpha pack and also Stiles trying to find his new place in the pack. For some reason he’s only calm when Derek is around and that leads to kissing, and later on awkward dinner dates including Papa Stilinski! (Honestly, even in fanfics Papa

The whole mood of this one was a bit more serious than I normally like my sterek, but it was actually really good and I didn't want to put it down. Stiles' POV.
Well deserving 4 stars. I loved the slow way in which Stiles and Derek became a couple. It also had the added bonus of having a good fleshed out story and action scenes happening around the main characters.

This was more Teen-wolfy than STEREK-y. It felt sad all around and even the relationship between stiles and Derek didn't seem very exciting to me. They were all so exhausted and sort of depressed that I became exhausted and sort of depressed as well. There were some tender moments but I was looking forward to finishing it.

A good looking man sleeping over in your bed, actually sleeping?

Not a bad way to make a friend I suppose though talking helps too.

This was rather a nice story and I'm glad Stiles found a cure for his insomnia.
Not sure I'd be sleeping if a werewolf was in my bed...
