Scott finally pulls a stunt so boneheaded that Stiles can’t think of any way to get him out of it. Hoping to outrun the fallout, he packs up his father and they move to Canada. Unfortunately, nowhere is safe.
Why You Should Read This:
This is a future fic, zombie apocalypse AU. I’m almost never in the mood for zombies, but I’ve already read this twice and will re-read on the regular. I’m not sure exactly where the canon divergence is from, but the story starts in the teen’s college years. Scott is an epic idiot in this, but I kind of think that’s a fair read on his character, but if you consider that bashing then think of this as a final warning.
The world building is outstanding, and I loved the take on Claudia Stilinski’s backstory and why/how she died. The cast is pretty minimal since, you know, everyone is dead! But that gives a laser focus for most of the story on John, Stiles, and Derek and their interactions. I found the character work and relationship dynamics gripping. I couldn’t look away. And then there was ugly crying. But it got better.
I’m being vague to avoid spoiling all the great surprises in the story. Just go read it.
