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.
