I feel like eeames and I deserve a high school au where Derek is the leader of the Bully Beaters and he wears a little sash on certain days of the month to show his commitment to anti-bullying and zero tolerance for shitty behavior and the first time he acknowledges Stiles’ presence (not for lack of trying, goddamnit) is when he happens upon Scott play-wrestling with him and thinks Stiles is being victimised and he breaks the ‘fight’ up and is all sweet and dreamy and crouching to Stiles’ level where he’s still sprawled on the floor and asking if he’s okay and Stiles is too awestruck to say anything and it spirals out of control until it gets to the point where every time Stiles sees Derek coming in the hallway he turns to Scott like “Dude be a total bro and punch me in the face” and Scott’s like “fuck no the last time he got me by the back of the neck I’m pretty sure he killed brain cells and it’s his fault I’m failing history.”
TOO LATE THE SASH AND THE BADGES HAVE BEEN ORDERED, IT’S BULLY BEATERS
It’s so funny because until Derek’s reign, no one took the Bully Beaters seriously because their logo looks like a butterfly.
I think I love the idea of the Bully Beaters being a completely nerdy thing until Derek came back Junior year ready to take up his role looking like a freaking UFC fighter and suddenly all instances of anti-social behaviour dropped to less than 3% just because his default face is might-shove-your-head-into-your-own-digestive-tract angry (when in reality he’s being vigilant okay?).
Also there better be issues with support from the school board after the Beaters do too good a job, which calls into question how much BHHS needs a bully-deterrent - but Derek believes in his cause (he was a late bloomer and his sisters gang up on him shut up) so there are fundraising cookies and forty-six anonymous requests for a kissing booth of which Stiles is only responsible for eighteen.
