It’s time for the monthly top 15 themed fics! This month’s theme is Fake/Pretend Relationship (they all have happy endings). As always, they are listed in no particular order! (Since I really love this trope, I decided to do more than 15 fics. Enjoy!)
You can find other themed fics here.
The Newlywed Game (oneshot: 19,569: Mature)
Stiles is (still) single when the pack’s getaway to the Caribbean comes by (oh misplaced optimism); lucky for him Derek is committed to being uncommitted and even after all these years is still powerless against Stiles’ unique forms of persuasion.
Cue a romantic getaway for two: sun, sand, and sarcasm abound…and the two roped into competing in the Resort’s version of the Newlywed game. Only it’s completely obvious it’s going to end in disaster. Probably homicide.
Most probably homicide.
Plot twist: It doesn’t.
And I May Be Foolish To Fall As I Do (Complete: 77,682: Explicit)
Derek Hale is a SMEA (Supernatural and Mythical Enforcement Agency) agent and a string of unusual murders in NYC are found connected to those popping up in LA. With Scott and Stiles in tow from New York… Well they become the number one murder suspects and Derek has to go undercover and pretend to date Stiles to make a break in the case.
All I Want is The Taste That Your Lips Allow (oneshot:28,125: Explicit)
It wasn’t supposed to go this far. Derek never thought in pretending to be in a relationship with Stiles Stilinski that he’d actually fall in love with him. In the beginning it was so simple, all the pretending, but slowly, things began to unravel.
The Road to Self-Actualization is Littered with F-Bombs (oneshot: 24,811: Mature)
It’s Stiles’s final Spring Break of his college career, and he’s got plans to do a whole lot of nothing. But Derek has other plans for him, and before he knows it, Stiles is joining Derek to go undercover at a couples’ retreat in a bid to catch a ring of thieves. It’s the world’s most perfect plan! Nothing could possibly go wrong!
A Strong Heart and A Nerve of Steel (oneshot: 21,285: Explicit)
Stiles and Derek wake up married in Vegas. Well, they would have if it was legal.
In which Stiles is the president’s son, Derek is his bodyguard, and Papa President orders them to pretend to be in love for the sake of gay rights.
According to Plans (Complete: 72,744: Explicit)
Five times Stiles and Derek pretend to be boyfriends, and the one time they didn’t have to pretend at all. (Or: in which Stiles’ plan for senior year is completely ruined by a supernatural creature stalking him.)
While You Were Sleeping (oneshot: 19,441: Teen)
Stiles’ life takes a turn when he is mistaken for the fiancé of the woman whose life he saves. Things start to get really complicated, though, when Stiles starts to fall for Laura’s twin brother, Derek.
Don’t Worry Baby (oneshot: 20,276: Explicit)

Derek doesn’t respond.
can’t be hateful gotta be grateful (oneshot: 6,260: Teen)
"Be cool, Dad, we’ve decided to con Grandma."
(Or, the one where the Stilinski men drag Derek to Thanksgiving dinner at Grandma’s and she gets the
right wrong idea.)
Not Your Disney Romance (Complete: 42,065: Mature)
After a long-forgotten agreement of an arranged marriage between Derek and the daughter of another pack’s alpha resurfaces, Stiles takes it upon himself to become the most amazing fake fiancé that a clueless, desperate alpha werewolf could wish for.
