Could you do one where Derek gets drugged or something and it makes him all happy and nice? This has been done a thousand times before, but I can never get sick of these fics. :)
"Deaton says it’ll wear off," Scott says when he opens the door to his house.
"What will?" Stiles asks suspiciously. The last time he saw Derek, he was unconscious and covered in a fine red powder and Isaac and Scott were cramming him into the back of Allison’s car. It’s been almost two hours since then; he and Lydia had been left to deal with the faerie, who absolutely refused to deal with werewolves or hunters. Stiles had dropped Lydia off at her house because she’d insisted on taking a shower after.
"He’s, uh," Scott gestures vaguely. "Well. It’s kinda like he’s drunk. If he could get drunk." As if on cue, a bunch of people in the living room break into laughter and Stiles raises his eyebrows.
"Was that Derek?”
Scott grins faintly. “Yeah, dude. He’s kinda fun.”
"Fun," Stiles repeats, grinning wryly. "I’ve gotta see this."
Scott’s grin widens and he steps back, holding the door open so Stiles can step inside. Derek’s sandwiched on the couch between Isaac and Allison and just that is odd enough - Derek’s never seemed overly fond of being in close proximity with people, especially not Allison - but even weirder is the wide grin on his face when he turns to watch Scott and Stiles walk into the room. Stiles stares; he’s never seen Derek smile like that, except that time at the sheriff’s station when he was schmoozing up that deputy. This smile seems genuine though, as does the cheerful note in Derek’s voice when he slurs, “Heyyyy, Stiles!”
"Hey dude," Stiles replies, jamming his hands in his pockets. "You look stoned."
OR OR!!! STILES/PARRISH: "ADORABLE, AREN'T THEY? THEY THINK THEY'RE BEING SNEAKY BUT THEY'RE NOT." (EVERYONE KNOWS!!!! ESP THE SHERIFF.)
(This turned out to be trickier than I thought it was going to be. Hope you like it bb!)
Sheriff Stilinski is not an idiot. His entire career revolves around his ability to pay attention to things other people don’t notice and draw conclusions from his observations. And, all right, he may turn a bit of a blind eye when it comes to his son (not like he’s ever going to admit it, but he’s a little embarrassed he didn’t pick up on the whole supernatural thing sooner; didn’t do a great job there), but it’s not exactly surprising; they may know each other inside and out but that also means they know how to hide things from each other. Still, he’s not blind; it only takes him a week to realize Stiles is seeing someone. At first, the sheriff thinks something supernatural’s going on again; Stiles is always on his phone, texting madly, which isn’t unusual, but he’s careful not to leave his phone laying around like he usually does. The one time he does leave it laying on the coffee table, it buzzes while the sheriff’s laying on the couch watching tv and Stiles nearly breaks his neck diving in from the kitchen to grab it.
"Everything all right?" the sheriff asks mildly, and Stiles flushes deeply when he says, "Yeah, everything’s fine."
It’s not the supernatural, though, the sheriff is pretty sure. Stiles has been very open with him since the big werewolf reveal and when the sheriff carefully asks “Anything new on the weird stuff front?” at dinner a couple nights later, Stiles seems fine with telling him with new developments with the nemeton, so it’s nothing to do with the supernatural - unless Stiles is lying, of course, but the sheriff doesn’t think he is. The next night, the sheriff comes home from a late shift to find Stiles sitting slumped at the kitchen table over a pile of homework, and when he goes over to shake him awake and send him upstairs to bed, the sheriff pauses at the sight of a bruise on Stiles’ neck just below his ear. Oh, he thinks.
so i see this heartbreaking similarity here…
suddenly everything is 100% more terrible

- Leonardo Da Vinci’s wacky piano is heard for the first time, after 500 years:
A bizarre instrument combining a piano and cello has finally been played to an audience more than 500 years after it was dreamt up Leonardo da Vinci.
Da Vinci, the Italian Renaissance genius who painted the Mona Lisa, invented the ‘‘viola organista’’ - which looks like a baby grand piano – but never built it, experts say.
The viola organista has now come to life, thanks to a Polish concert pianist with a flair for instrument-making and the patience and passion to interpret da Vinci’s plans.
Full of steel strings and spinning wheels, Slawomir Zubrzycki’s creation is a musical and mechanical work of art.
‘‘This instrument has the characteristics of three we know: the harpsichord, the organ and the viola da gamba,’’ Zubrzycki said as he debuted the instrument at the Academy of Music in the southern Polish city of Krakow.
The instrument’s exterior is painted in a rich midnight blue, adorned with golden swirls painted on the side. The inside of its lid is a deep raspberry inscribed with a Latin quote in gold leaf by 12th-century German nun, mystic and philosopher, Saint Hildegard.
‘‘Holy prophets and scholars immersed in the sea of arts both human and divine, dreamt up a multitude of instruments to delight the soul,’’ it says.
The flat bed of its interior is lined with golden spruce. Sixty-one gleaming steel strings run across it, similar to the inside of a baby grand.
Each is connected to the keyboard, complete with smaller black keys for sharp and flat notes. But unlike a piano, it has no hammered dulcimers. Instead, there are four spinning wheels wrapped in horse-tail hair, like violin bows.
To turn them, Zubrzycki pumps a pedal below the keyboard connected to a crankshaft. As he tinkles the keys, they press the strings down onto the wheels, emitting rich, sonorous tones reminiscent of a cello, an organ and even an accordion.
The effect is a sound that da Vinci dreamt of, but never heard; there are no historical records suggesting he or anyone else of his time built the instrument he designed.
A sketch and notes in da Vinci’s characteristic inverted script is found in his Codex Atlanticus, a 12-volume collection of his manuscripts and designs for everything from weaponry to flight.
‘‘I have no idea what Leonardo da Vinci might think of the instrument I’ve made, but I’d hope he’d be pleased,’’ said Zubrzycki, who spend three years and 5000 hours bringing da Vinci’s creation to life.
This had better have like 5 million notes the next time I see it. omg. I have chills.
I want to play it so bad, this is amazing
I’ve got nothing left to prove
Cause I’ve got nothing left to lose
See me bare my teeth for you
i’ve been working on this for what feels like ages and it didn’t turn out anything like i planned. so i figured i’d just post it. skittles gives me all sorts of feelings, but dark!skittles, oh god.
A list of some of the best Scott ‘n’ Stiles fic in the realm to help you embrace the rainbow! (Mainly romantic, but with speckles of strictly friendship.)
