"Curing AIDS? Shit, that’s like Cadillac making a car that lasts for 50 years. And you know they can do it, but they ain’t going to do nothing that fucking dumb. Shit, they got metal on the Space Shuttle that can go around the Moon and withstand temperatures of up to 20,000 degrees, you mean to tell me you don’t think they can make an El Dorado with a fuckin’ bumper that don’t fall off?"
- Chris Rock (“Bigger and Blacker”, 1999)

The One With Beach Wedding (
and everyone lives)
Stiles always knew his wedding will be on a beach only with his closest friends and family. What he didn’t know was that he’s gonna marry the man of his life that means so much for him.
When they finally stood there, eye to eye, the slightest grin appeared on Stiles’ face. He looked at the girls behind Derek - Lydia, Allison, Erica, Cora and Kira, all of them holding flowers and smiling, boys on the other side. Including Peter, who just wanted to see his nephes finally happy. Scott proudly shook his head with approval, still not believing his two best friends are going to be married in a few minutes. Jackson, Boyd and Liam stood there, waiting for the ceremony to begin.
Derek was the first to read his vow to Stiles. He looked at the beautiful young man standing in front of him and started reading his vow.
"Stiles, when we first met, I thought you’re just a hyperactive teenager that’s going to make so much trouble. Well, I guess I was right," Stiles chuckled way more than he should.
"All of the memories, all the days we’ve spent together. Every morning with you, every minute with you is a gift from heaven. I didn’t believe I could ever be happy in my life but then you came into my heart. You’ve kept fighting for me and still are. I’ll never forget our first beach sunset when I finally knew that you’re the one. I whispered I love you into your ear and the spark in your eyes was all I needed. You make me happy again and for everything you do for me, I will always love you. I love you, Stiles. You’re the most perfect and beautiful man and I’ve ever seen. Every day from now, I’ll always remind you that I love you.” Derek stopped and hid the paper with vow into the pocket. When he looked at Stiles, he was illuminated by sunset, revealing one little tear in his eye. After a few seconds of silence, Stiles said:
"I love you with all my heart, Derek. I love every inch of my sourwolf. You are blue to my orange. And that will never change because I love you." He reached for Derek’s neck and kissed him on the lips. Everything went according to plan. Stiles said Yes, Derek said Yes and finally, they belong to each other.
