Since it doesn’t look like anyone’s getting arrested today what do you say we put sex back on the table?
Sterek AU: Stiles is excited to finally get to do some real undercover work. All he has to do is seduce a man into agreeing to pay to have sex with him. Shouldn’t be too hard… right?
Derek is part of an ongoing investigation into a human trafficking ring. Tonight he has the fun job of rounding up sex workers to see if any of them have any information on their bosses.
This is what happens when people don’t read their inter-agency memos. Chaos.

Let’s not talk about it…
KUCI: I’m gonna take you a few years back. What was going on in your life professionally at the time that the role [in Teen Wolf] came up?
Tyler: Uhm… What did happen? Well, I had just recently - I hate saying “retired from baseball” -
KUCI: I need to ask you about that too. Because I wanted to ask you in one of my questions. How hard was it for you to make that decision to retire from baseball?
Tyler: Oh my god. Do we want to go back to that?
KUCI: Absolutely, let’s do it.
Tyler: So, retired from baseball. Uhm— that was… I’m trying to think how many times, I can’t count… a couple of times, I literally was sitting in my car after practice kind of shutting down, that I was just like crying in the front seat of my car, trying to hide it from like any of the other guys of the team walking by after practice. It was like the most miserable experience. I can’t even sugarcoat it. It was the hardest thing I ever had to do, to walk away from that.
“Sure thing”. Stiles turned and leapt at Scott, Scott caught him with a surprised exhaled “ooof” of breath as he cradled Stiles in his arms. Stiles planted a kiss on Scott’s cheek.
“STILES.” Derek seemed to be losing what self-control he had had.
“You look like a cartoon. Shaggy leaping into the arms of Scooby Doo. For fuck’s sake Stiles, take this SERIOUSLY. Dial it back.”
