Stiles might be a sentinel, but Derek is a werewolf. Derek is not and never will be a guide.


There is no way in hell he’ll be a guide. No. Way. In. Hell.

Why You Should Read This:

There was a mention in the comments on the “Rough Trade” site that Sentinels/Guides were essentially ‘the little black dress’ of fandom. You could dress it up, dress it down and you could take it anywhere.

Damned if they weren’t right.

This is a fusion where Stiles is an unbonded Sentinel and Derek is his Guide, and Derek fights it every step of the way.  There’s a mystery to solve before the requisite happy ending but the story is well done and blends Sentinel and Teen Wolf backstories nicely.


  1. It’s funny that you recced this today, I just finished reading all the stories by this author on AO3 today and I would recommend all of them. 🙂

    • It’s sometimes hard to pick one fic from an author; I try not to spam the list with multiple recs for the same author…. but, yes, the others are good, too!

  2. Love Derek in this – the author has captured Derekness and being a Guide perfectly!
