“We have received confirmation that there is a hostage situation in progress at a warehouse compound two hours out of Los Angeles, following a multiple-vehicle pileup on Highway 101 this morning…”
The one in which Stiles has lived to (legal) adulthood and, along the way, become a bit of a badass himself.
Why You Should Read This:
I adore older Stiles who is truly BAMF!Stiles.
Stiles and his dad are in the wrong place at the right time. The Sheriff is fighting for his relationship with his son and they’re on a father-son bus trip when everything goes FUBAR.
It’s interested to see the Sheriff see Stiles in a new light. Stiles ability to be calm, confident, prepared, and helping others is totally unexpected and dad can’t help be proud of his son in the end.
Of course, there are werewolves in the mix… I particularly liked this piece:
Getting people out of a burning bus, keeping people together in a bad situation, shielding people from humans of a criminal persuasion – all of that, he’s willing to concede, are things people like his dad are better trained, better prepared to do.
But protecting people from werewolves, from other deadly things right out of legend and superstition – that’s Stiles’ job.
The story rocks back and forth between past and present but it’s not confusing, it’s the backstory you need to understand why they’re here in this moment.
There’s also yummy art and a podfic to go with it!
