Well, if finding out I missed Stiles & Derek being in the same room together on my tv for the first time in 1,000 years doesn’t mean its time to read fics about them screwing incessantly than I don’t understand anything about anything ever byeee

Writing and reading fanfiction isn’t just something you do; it’s a way of thinking critically about the media you consume, of being aware of all the implicit assumptions that a canonical work carries with it, and of considering the possibility that those assumptions might not be the only way things have to be.

At this late date, fanfiction has become wildly more biodiverse that the canonical works that it springs from. It encompasses male pregnancy, centaurification, body swapping, apocalypses, reincarnation, and every sexual fetish, kink, combination, position, and inversion you can imagine and probably a lot more that you could but would probably prefer not to. It breaks down walls between genders and genres and races and canons and bodies and species and past and future and conscious and unconscious and fiction and reality. Culturally speaking, this work used to be the job of the avant garde, but in many ways fanfiction has stepped in to take that role. If the mainstream has been slow to honor it, well, that’s usually the fate of aesthetic revolutions. Fanfiction is the madwoman in mainstream culture’s attic, but the attic won’t contain it forever.

Teen Wolf AU: For as long as Derek can think, he’s been in the family business - in his family’s case, that’s being an assassin for hire. When Peter gives him the name of a new target, with the additional task of extraction information, he doesn’t question his orders. However, Stiles isn’t easy to get close to, and as he slowly gets closer to him, Derek has to admit that maybe he is drawing this assignment out longer than strictly necessary. And more than that, he’s beginning to fall hopelessly in love with Stiles, a factor that doesn’t stay unnoticed by Peter and that comlicates things even further when Derek finds that he is unable to pull the trigger on Stiles even if it means putting his own life at risk…
