I Don't Want No Fly Guy (I Just Want A Shy Guy) - Saucery - Teen Wolf (TV) [Archive of Our Own]
Stiles + Drunken Psychoanalysis = Win.


"If you're so right about everything, then why do you even bother hitting on me?"

"Because you deserve a nice guy," Stiles murmurs, and even though he's got that usual dopey smile on his face, his eyes are serious. So serious, and they're -

This is ridiculous. "I'm perfectly capable of dating nice guys, okay?"

"Oh, yeah?" Stiles tilts his head. His lips are still damp from all the drinking he's been doing. "Prove it." [670]

Fanon to Canon: A Journey - Saucery - Teen Wolf (TV) [Archive of Our Own]
I’ve been in many fandoms, over the years. Many, many fandoms. And in many of them, I’ve been queer-baited, and in many others, my existence as a slash fan wasn’t acknowledged, at all.

But this? Is the first time in my entire fannish life, in more than a decade, that I’ve actually felt my slash OTP might become canon. That it has a real shot at becoming canon.

This is why.

A Better Man - Saucery - Teen Wolf (TV) [Archive of Our Own]
Stiles disarms Derek. Somehow, he effortlessly gets Derek to drop his armor, that iron-wrought aggression Derek uses to keep the world at bay. Stiles just - takes him apart, lays him bare, in ways that no one else does. That no one else can.

And Derek is a better person with Stiles than he is with anyone else. His most selfless moments are invariably moments in which he’s saving Stiles, for no other reason than, well, saving Stiles.

Derek’s motivations aren’t pure when it comes to Isaac and Boyd and Erica. Not even Scott. Derek’s always trying to manipulate them or train them for the good of the pack, even if he has to pulverize them to do it. He’s never like that with Stiles. Never. He has never manipulated Stiles or lied to him or forced him or beaten him. Ever. Sending Erica to keep Stiles away from danger by hitting Stiles over the head was the one time Derek hurt Stiles (albeit indirectly), but - again - it was to keep Stiles away from danger. [1148]

Entrapment - Saucery - Teen Wolf (TV) [Archive of Our Own]
"Hey," he says, sleepily, because the cold is seeping into his bones and numbing his very soul. "D'you think the universe is trying to tell us something?"

Derek doesn't answer, of course. Because Derek's a one-man Fortress of Solitude. Superman could totally turn Derek into a celestial ice-palace and live in him. Derek would make an excellent Arctic headquarters. Silent as a tomb. A sentient tomb.

"I mean," Stiles continues, because Derek hasn't told him to shut up, yet, "we always end up tied together or locked in together or… floating in random bodies of water together, and I'm starting to wonder if - I don't know - it's a thing? Some sort of thing. A pattern. A bizarre pattern. Of bizarreness." [2247]

Covalency and Affinity: An Essay on Pairing Popularity - Saucery - Meta - Fandom [Archive of Our Own]
Why do some ships become so much more popular than others?

My one-sentence theory is: some ships fit into neat binary grooves in our minds. (Derrida-style.) Those ships are the most popular.

To elaborate, each person in the pairing is an archetypal balancing factor for the other. Take the most popular ship of all, Kirk/Spock. Kirk = Instinct. Spock = Logic. That's a binary pairing, right there. It's what Lacan would call a "dual-entry matrix". Basically, it's a psychological impetus, not only for the characters but for the shippers; there's gotta be binary action going on, there. Something to deconstruct.

When it comes to fannish shipping, deconstruction means making two seemingly "opposite" personalities discover compatibility. (Harmony.) Or, in lay terms, some kinda yin-yang love-fu. For example: Fraser (Discipline)/Kowalski (Brashness). Or Stiles (Empathy;Randomness)/Derek (Menace;Focus). Or Eames (Fluidity)/Arthur (Solidity). Or Loki (Deceit)/Thor (Honor). Or Steve (Responsibility;Prudishness)/Tony (Irreverence;Promiscuity).

See, it's about chemistry. What does chemistry mean? Incompleteness. True chemistry has to be about give-and-take. Both characters have to lack something that is present in the other. And those qualities must react to each other. Like, uh, covalent bonds. Or elective affinities. #NERDMOMENT But seriously. There has to be a mutual spark.

saucery: New story.
It's no secret that every wolf on the show wants in Stiles's pants, or at least in his heart, and Peter is no exception. Even though he's a scary arch-villain that kills people. He's out to make a pack, and for that, he needs a mate - which is why he pulls that stunt with Scott's Mom. He needs to secure Scott's loyalty as a Beta, and that purpose would be best served by having a mate that Scott's loyal to.

It's either Scott's Mom, or his best friend.


It makes sense.
