“Carry me,” Stiles says.


“But I’m injured.”

“You have a rash,” Derek says. “On your arm. Your feet work just fine.”


“No. You weigh almost as much as I do. And you ate a pound of chicken at lunch.”

"Well, yeah, but I pooped like an hour ago, so.”

“You’re disgusting.”

“Don’t play, you love me.”

I do, Derek thinks, relatively horrified. I really do.

I've read this fic twice now and I still enjoy it a lot. It's a twist on the usual Teen Wolf alternate universes and I enjoyed it immensely. It's definitely not canon compliant but the author is very good at what she does. I like the characterization of Stiles and that he's magic!Stiles eventually.

It also has some hilarious usage of puns that I had to at least smirk and shake my head at. 

Ultimately it's an easy read in that it grabs you and pulls you in to the world-building of this story. It's part one of a two part series and it can stand just fine on it's own. The second in the series, In the Morning I'll Call You, is a story that begins 5 years after the first part, has not been finished yet and was last updated in February 2017. I've subscribed to it on Ao3 because I am curious as to where xiaq will take the storyline and I'm willing to wait. :)

I hope that you'll check it out, especially if you like AUs.
