It’s been a quiet few years, and the McCall Pack has grown and settled. But, when the Hale Pack return to Beacon Hills they find Scott isn’t as welcoming as they had hoped.

Soon they, Stiles, and Lydia, find out that not everything about the McCall Pack is as it has always seemed.

Why You Should Read This:

This is a future fic, everyone’s-grown-up AU. Diverges from canon around Season 6’ish and has the best explanation for the “True Alpha” (aka, Werewolf Jesus) that I’ve read. Not Scott friendly, and that’s great in my book. I warned that it contains character bashing because the author tagged it as such but I felt that it was a reasonable extrapolation of how Scott might have turned out based on what I know of canon.

Aside from satisfying my love of all things anti-Scott, this story is wonderfully crafted with some great magical world building. It’s a really well drawn and well reasoned vision of the future, and the dynamic between Derek and Stiles was incredible. Also, there’s an original secondary character that I loved.

The romance is a bit of a slow burn depending on how you look at that sort of thing.
