Once Upon a Time,
A kingdom laid in the Northern most corner of the earth. Where it was snow covered all year long. The land was ruled over by three elect: The Lawmaker, The Justice, and the Peacekeeper. All three were not only rulers, but also fathers. For each had a son. The son of the Lawmaker spent most of his time attempting too woo the opposite sex with boasting of his father’s power. The son of the Justice spent his time training and impressing the land with his strength and finesse. The son of the Peacekeeper spent his time outside playing with the animals and wishing he had a friend to talk to.
Once Upon a Time,
The son of Peacekeeper sought the company of animals instead of humans to escape the teasing of his uncoordination. He spoke to the birds that migrated South during the coldest months of the year, and was informed of the warmer lands were the land was green and full of colorful trees, and where humans could walk outside with skin showing. During his loneliest hours, the son dreamed of this paradise and longed to see it.
Once Upon a Time,
The King of Ethelwulf was cursed to turn into a wolf during the day. One day, the castle seemed too much like a prison to his beastly form. As he exited the castle into the open fields, he gave into the urge to run free. At night in his human form, he decided to leave. Tired at being alone and cowered against by his staff as a wolf and shut into isolation as a human, he a signed legal document consenting for his Reluctant Knight to take over in his absence. At daybreak, for once, the King eagerly waited for his joints to shift and took off hoping to leave his frustrations behind him.

[Aw, I hope everything gets better for you, anon! Have some fluffy Sterek at an amusement park. Six Flags, to be accurate, but that’s just me having some weird nostalgia about rollercoasters.]
Stiles’ phone is out of battery and there are still a ton of people ahead of him for Goliath. He shifts his weight to his feet, eyeing the bodies in front of him, snaking around and around and around this wretchedly small waiting area. Scott and Allison are off winning cute stuffed animals for each other, and apparently no one else wanted to wait the two hours for only the most amazing ride in the park.
Whatever. Stiles can do it, he can entertain himself while he waits for the rollercoaster. He just passed a sign that said “Estimated Wait Time: 30 Minutes” so it’s not that much longer.
"Singles! Anybody single?" a ride operator calls out.
Stiles is about to snort and say that his relationship status isn’t any of their business when he realizes what they mean. He jumps up and down, waving his hand. “Yes! Me! Totally single and ready to mingle! I mean, for the ride. Yes,” Stiles announces.
He gets a few weird looks from his ride-waiting neighbors but he feels the sweet, sweet, envy when he follows the ride operator to the very front of the line.
Stiles’ heart is beating in rapid anticipation as they take him straight to the coaster where all the other passengers are in their seats and strapped in. “Here you go,” the ride operator says, gesturing towards and empty seat.
"Yesss, Goliath, only the best rollercoaster in this damn park," Stiles says gleefully, plopping into the plastic seat. "Hi there," he says, waggling his eyebrows to his incredibly hot seat-mate.
The woman in the row in front of him whoops in agreement as Stiles flips the harness down in front of him and it locks in place.
She turns and says, “It’s not too late to chicken out, Der-bear,” smirking at Stiles’ seat-companion.
Der-bear, who has his jaw set in a grim line, says, “Never.”
Teen Wolf AU: Derek and Stiles are supposed to go undercover as a couple. The only problem? They hate each other. Stiles thinks he has the pretending part down, but Derek clearly hasn’t. Cue lots of practice making eyes at each other, and practice kissing, which then leads to pretend making eyes at each other and pretend kissing on the job, which totally doesn’t lead to real making eyes at each other and pining and kissing. Nope, not a chance.
