Summary: “Do you actually know anything about tending to trees?”
“How hard could it be?” Francis had replied. “They grow all over the place.”

When Life Hands You Werewolves - uraneia - Teen Wolf (TV) [Archive of Our Own]
Four hours—that’s how long it takes after the Daedalus II drops off the new contingent of baby scientists and Marines before Rodney starts taking bets on who’ll be the first to get into Derek Hale’s pants.



A month ago John's team rescued a former runner named Derek Hale. He's great to have on offworld missions--he's like a danger magnet; nobody else gets so much as a splinter. But there's just something different about him. John can't quite put his finger on it....

A simple mechanism could have been decisive for the development of life | Hacker News
This is one in a number of papers exploring how biological phase separation/condensation may have provided favourable microenvironments for early life development.

For a nice primer on what biological phase separation is, see this (non-paywalled) general audience article from earlier this year in Nature (https://www.nature.com/articles/d41586-018-03070-2).

Some other work on phase separation as a means for primordial evolution and biochemistry includes a paper from Christine Keating in 2012 (WAY WAY ahead of the curve) [1], elegant work by Frank Jülicher [2], and more recently a nice paper from Keating and Phil Bevilacqua [3].

These papers (IMO) tie rather nicely into some theoretical predictions on self-organization from Jeremy England [4].

Phase separation really seems to be a hot topic in biology beyond early life development too, extending at least to the field of gene regulation.

Bonding for Beginners - Ember
Stiles’ parents had the happiest, gushiest, a-typical connection that you could hope to hear about. They had met in an interview and within that month they had bonded. Just like that, they had instantly known that they were going to love one another. A lot of people gave them flack for being too quick, but when you felt a connection, you felt a connection, or so they always told Stiles. And from that day on the Stilinskis were the happiest pair of bondmates you would ever hope to find in Beacon Hills, and when Sentinel Stilinski became Papa Stilinksi, and then only a few years after that Sheriff Stilinski, his bondmate was always there to guide him along his way. His loving wife and the beautiful mother to his son. And after her death he would never be the same again, the emotional wound too jagged to fit another Guide within his life, like a puzzle piece with only one other matching cut-out, now gone forever.


Was it too much that Stiles wanted the same?


Sentinel AU where Stiles is a Guide looking for real connection, and Derek is a Sentinel forced to get a Guide.

let this pass you by - CallicoKitten - Stranger Things (TV 2016) [Archive of Our Own] - PG-13 - 12,975 words
Summary: Steve’s not entirely sure at which point in his life he became Dustin Henderson’s personal chauffeur. Okay, maybe that’s not entirely true. Maybe he can pinpoint the exact moment it happened and it honestly keeps him awake at night more than the demo-dogs or the Demogorgon or any of the insane shit that’s happened in Hawkins recently.


the kids drag steve on a trip to chicago to find El's sister, steve figures some shit out in the process


Contains the following delightful line: “She has a gun, Mike,” Will says, softly. “Jonathan has a camera and a hundred mixed tapes.”
