Suffice it to say this Sterek was different from all the others I've read.
This is a sedate tale that takes its time. The setting and tone grounded in reality; Derek and Stiles each battling their own demons. Their coming together, literally and figuratively, is moving and hungry and fervent - like a healing of each other's souls."And Derek wants. For the first time in his life, he knows exactly what he wants, and he wants it so much it feels like a fire in his chest…As far as he's concerned, he should be the one thanking Stiles. For ruining his plans, for filling the silence he thought he wanted… for awakening something inside him that he thought was lost forever."
Impressive and affecting. Definitely leaves a mark.
