Sterek Week: Day 3 - College AU - Chasing Liberty
Stiles Stilinski has never had an ordinary life. At nineteen years old, he is the most protected boy in America; he is the First Son. Frustrated with his overprotective father-the President of the United States of America-for not letting him attend his college of choice, Stiles decides to ditch his security detail and head to California for some much needed freedom. At a club, Stiles meets the handsome stranger Derek who agrees to let him tag along to LA. While Derek knows who Stiles is, Stiles doesn’t feel threatened by him, instead he feels strangely safe. But Derek hasn’t told him who he is. Under the orders of Stiles’ father, Derek is supposed to keep an eye on the rebellious boy but falling in love with him wasn’t something he expected to do. Romance blossoms between the wild, sarcastic Stiles and the cool, distant Derek as they travel across the US. When the trip is over and Stiles finds out who Derek really is, everything goes to hell. But the President isn’t a completely unreasonable man, and he can see how much his son is hurting. With the promise of keeping his new security detail, Stiles is allowed to attend NYU and win back the man of his dreams.
Sterek Week // Wednesday: Sterek Manips
Derek Hale and Stiles Stilinski are top models in Hollywood. Signed with different agencies, the two often find themselves on the same set for various shoots. Although Stiles and Derek often butt heads behind the scenes, in front of the camera, their natural chemistry shines through.
Soon enough, the duo start spending time together outside of work. They quickly become friends, often snarking at each other about their different habits (“Honestly Stiles. I don’t know how you have the body you do when you never exercise and you eat like a horse.”) and their different modeling techniques (“Would it kill you to smile once, dude? I know that’s your whole thing, or whatever. But, I swear to God, if you smiled at one shoot, you’d kill half the population!”).
Their good-natured bantering eventually turns romantic when Stiles half jokingly says, “I hope they make us kiss at that Abercrombie shoot next week. I bet it’d be a blasty blast.” And when Derek answers back, “Why would we need to wait to kiss at a shoot when we can just do it right now?”, Stiles all but jumps into Derek’s lap.
Things are going well for them, both professionally and personally. And they’re careful to never appear as more than friends when they’re in public. When they finally get caught by the paparazzi out having lunch one afternoon, hands clasped together on the table, rumors start to fly about their possible romantic relationship.
Their publicists try to do as much damage control as they can, but Derek and Stiles are tired of hiding. They want the world to know that they love each other and decide to come out as a couple in a special issue of Out Magazine.
