This was an emotional Sterek fic. It sort of reminded me a little of the emotion in 3B.
Stiles was easily my favorite character in this, which isn't a surprise. He's my favorite character in the show, too. But here he's different. More vulnerable. He's been through a lot and was lost for so long.
I loved the relationship that developed between him and Derek. It worked.
I really loved Alex, too. He was such an awesome secondary character.
