Summary: In which Stiles goes along with one of Derek’s plans and ends up in an alternate universe as a result. He should’ve known better. He did know better, actually, and that means he has no one to blame but himself.

“Laura wants to lure the kid in with food and kindness and make a pet of him, like a feral cat. Derek wants to have him arrested for stalking. They’re at an impasse. (And the rest of the family is staying emphatically out of it in a way that suggests bets have been placed.)”

Review: Despite the warnings, this is a nice schmoopy fic with lots of feels. Stiles finds himself in a world where the Hales are alive and well and sets out to keep it that way. Befriending the Hales and various Beacon Hill's teens along the way.

Stile's original world is super dark, so the beginning of the fic is really something to read with care if character death gets to you. After the first chapter though, everything gets much lighter. Probably not a great read if you aren't familiar with Teen Wolf because various swaths depend on Alt-history of the series.
