Where You Still Remember Dreaming by yodasyoyo
“What’s your name? I can’t keep calling you Balto.”

“What’s yours?”

“Stiles.”

Derek raises an eyebrow. That isn’t his real name. There’s no way. But now he thinks about it, he has a vague memory of someone, probably Uncle Peter, telling him that with the fae, names have power. “I’m Miguel,” he says.

“Lie.”

“Are you trying to tell me your real name is Stiles?”

Stiles runs his tongue across his teeth and considers Derek carefully. “Fair enough,” he says, “Miguel it is.”

Grabbing his groceries and pocketing the change, Derek turns to leave; he’s nearly at the door when Stiles calls out, “By the way, Miguel, if you’re interested, it’s two for one on bags of kibble at the pet store down the street.”

Derek doesn’t look back, doesn’t hesitate, just raises a hand and flips him off on the way out.

Moon's Notes: The fic that is mostly light-hearted and happy, and yet still bittersweet and sad. I smiled through tears, no lie. Stiles is a half-fae stuck in Beacon Hills as its replacement Nemeton/Guardian, he loves and loses everyone over time (Sheriff! ::sniff::) until he finally meets Derek and falls in love.
