Teen Wolf!AU: Laura comes back as a ghost to make sure her brother is okay, but Stiles is the only one who can see her. (x)

“Derek…” Stiles tries, hand reaching and pausing in the air between them, not sure where to go. Derek shifts away from any attempt, somehow closing in on himself without moving much at all.
“Don’t,” he mutters, and Stiles’ hand drops. He steels himself, reaches forward again, managing to close the distance until Derek shrugs him off roughly.
“Stiles,” he snaps, gaze focused on the ground, like he can’t stand looking up and not seeing his sister when she’s right there, “Don’t.”
Stiles takes in Derek’s defensive posture, the way he’s almost trembling from trying to hold himself together, and nods quickly, making a decision. It’s a hazardous one, but it’s a risk he has to take.
Pushing himself out of his chair, he throws his arms around Derek before the man can stop him, squeezing tightly even though he knows Derek could throw him off without any effort at all.
Derek doesn’t; he freezes, breathing shallow and muscles taut, ready to react if need be.
“Is this from Laura?” he asks after a few tense seconds. Stiles can feel the strain of him fighting not to push away all throughout his body.
“No, you asshole,” he mutters, words muffled against Derek’s shoulder. He holds Derek tighter. “This is from me.”
you and i walk a fragile line
i have known it all this time
but i never thought i’d live to see it break
it’s getting dark and it’s all too quiet
and i can’t trust anything now
and it’s coming over you like it’s all a big mistake
Can we just talk about Stiles` face in the fourth gif please? When he finds out that Derek might die he just freezes in horror. You can actually see the fear in his eyes because Stiles genuinely cares about Derek Hale even though he sometimes pretends that he doesn`t and is all like DUDE DON`T BLEED OUT ON MY SEATS and I WILL DRAG YOUR LITTLE WEREWOLF ASS OUT IN THE MIDDLE OF THE ROAD AND LEAVE YOU FOR DEAD but the thought of Derek not being around anymore scares the shit out of him. And this is the part when he realizes, OH SHIT, DEREK IS ACTUALLY GOING TO DIE UNLESS HE GETS THAT FUCKING BULLET and all of his body suddenly tenses up and his heart skips a beat because he can`t imagine his life without Derek in it.
“Look, Derek, I’m not going anywhere, okay? …”
Sterek AU: in which Derek feels like he doesn’t belong and Stiles tries to tell him that he does.
