I was asked by Mondo/Marvel to do a portrait of Tom Hiddleston’s Loki in preparation of Thor 2 which comes out this week. Very honored to have had the opportunity, Loki is the best!
omg so cute.
All I can imagine is pre-Stiles’ knowledge about werewolves and instead of Scott getting bitten, Stiles was dating Derek. As their relationship goes on for a while, Derek will disappear at weird times of the month, sometimes blowing Stiles off with a poor excuse, and Stiles doesn’t understand, and when he asks Derek to explain what’s going on, Derek deflects it and gets defensive, so understandably he starts to think that Derek is cheating on him or doesn’t love him anymore. Derek feels Stiles start to pull away from him, and he knows it’s because of his secret that he keeps from Stiles. Eventually, Derek feels too guilty for keeping this secret from Stiles and knows he’s about to lose him. So one night, he calls Stiles over, who’s so fed up with everything that he hardly even walks into Derek’s bedroom, and just stands in the doorway. Derek doesn’t call him over, just stands in front of the bed and begins to try to explain the situation…vaguely. Stiles of course won’t get it, Derek knows that. He gets so frustrated with himself that he lets a growl loose and his eyes slip from one color to the other for only a moment, and its so positively primal that Stiles just shuts up and stares at him like ‘wtf was that Der’ and Derek sighs in defeat, knowing he has to show Stiles in order to make him understand. So, he backs up from Stiles, gives Stiles distance that Derek knows he will need. He transforms, making sure to show his teeth, point his claws, swish his tail in a graceful arc behind him. (yes Derek has a tail in this). Derek is so afraid Stiles will run out if he makes a move towards Stiles, so he just stands there and waits. Embarassment and fear crawl slowly up Derek’s spine filling it with tension, and a slow growl slips out from the back of his throat.
Stiles is still staring at him. He takes one step backwards. His eyes are wide and he isn’t breathing, exactly.
Derek takes a chance and asks, timidly and quite out of character, “Are…are you afraid of me?”
Stiles stops staring at Derek’s new features, and pulls his eyes into Derek’s.
"You have a goddamn tail and you didn’t think to tell me sooner?!"
Derek’s whole body relaxed, and he slowly folded onto the bed behind him, a huff of laughter shaking his body. “Sorry,” he chuckled and glanced up at Stiles. He transformed back to his normal self and watched Stiles watch him with extreme interest.
He should have known Stiles wouldn’t be afraid. Stiles’ curiosity overran the normal fight or flight response most people had when they came across something so supernatural. It always had.
"Do it again."
Derek looked up at Stiles who was slowly walking to him from across the room. He stands just in front of Derek, their knees almost touching.
Derek takes a deep breathe and looks up at Stiles, not breaking eye contact. He willed the wolf to come out, and he couldn’t help but roll his neck as relief washed through his body, as it did everytime the wolf wasn’t locked away. He heard Stiles gasp, and felt hands reach out to touch his cheeks and smooth down to his neck.
Stiles pushed his legs open and walked between them. Out of habit, Derek put his hands on Stiles’ waist, aware of his claws and the light pressure he applied.
"This is amazing," Stiles was examining Derek’s face, turning his face this way and that. "You’re so amazing." He looked down into Derek’s eyes and his face lit up with the most genuine smile Derek had ever seen grace the boy’s face.
And Derek couldn’t help but swell with pleasure at being praised so. He smiled back at Stiles and moved in for a kiss.
