I literally don’t know and this has definitely been done before
I’m so sorry
Wait, that’s my blood type
Look, sometimes an artist’s just gotta draw cozy domestic AU fanart of their own characters. (I hope you didn’t think I was kidding about getting way too invested in the Gay-Dads-Adopt-a-Baby story.)
This one’s for you, NIMONA readers - thanks for sticking with me this far <3
Because I don’t let trolls deprive you of sex-ed fic:
the opening paragraphs are here.
So the subject of Stiles and Derek having a third child in the PAW universe came up and I just couldn’t resist doing a little fanart for the idea. I love the idea of them having a surrogate cause I think Derek would spoil a mini!Stiles rotten. X3
(I was going to have Andy and Olly in the picture but my hand was dumb and couldn’t seem to draw them right :/)
Aaaah! omfg they’re so precious ;w; I LOVE IT UUGUUGUU BABYYYY.
Okay so. I have been working on this kid since we all talked about it. So.
Meet Elijah— or Elly, as Andy and Olly call him (seeing a nickname pattern here?)
Elly isn’t actually from a surrogate—despite how much he looks like Stiles. He was left at one of the werewolf care centers near Beacon Hills; just dropped off by the parents and left there. He showed no signs of being an actual werewolf though, and so no werewolf families would adopt him. They tried to get him into a human care agency but since the tests showed he was the son of werewolves, they didn’t want to risk it without proof that he was human.
Derek, being the closest alpha (and one of power), took the trip out to see if he could try and sniff out whether this kid was werewolf or human. Turns out he’s the werewolf equivalent of a squib. Derek tries to get the kid to wolf out just to make sure, but all he gets is some giggling and gnawing on his fingers.
The children are older at this point (at least 10), and Derek has grown a little soft over the years. He knows he should be calling Stiles but Stiles has been arguing at the school all day about getting Andy’s teachers to call her a girl and all this stuff.
Elijah whines and reaches for Derek. He starts to cry until Derek picks him up. With a snuffle and a wiggle, Elijah settles in Derek’s arms like he’d never be any more content.
He takes Elijah home with him, insists it’s only until they can get the rest of the tests to go through to finalize that he’s human and not werewolf—despite his parents being werewolves.The only problem is that Derek isn’t the only one who kind of falls in love with this baby. The rest of the family does as well. Stiles is completely gone over the baby, cooing and acting like he’s 21 all over again.
Even though Elijah has some middle-eastern descent that they’re unable to pinpoint, he’s got dark hair, eyes, and freckle/moles just like Stiles. They agree to adopt him, and he takes Stiles’ last name (stiles kept his name despite the fact that he and Derek are married). It takes a couple of months, but the children are enamored with the baby and Derek and Stiles aren’t much better.
*whispers* and a baby
Did you know: otters hold hands when they sleep so they don’t drift away from each other? Happy early valentines fellow impatient sherlock fans.
