Fic where now-human Derek gets hammered for the first time in his life and is found woefully singing Dolly Parton’s Jolene but replacing the name in the lyrics with ‘Jordan’
"Your smile is like a breath of spring, your voice is soft like summer rain, and I cannot compete with you, Jordan…”
The voice drifts along the hallway of the, a clear tenor that’s rich with sorrow. Stiles stops in his tracks, is that…Derek? Singing a country song, twangs and all. It sounds good though. He must be still drunk, he’s not even getting the song right.
Being human really takes it out of the former werewolf, their first pack party (“Not the entirety of Beacon Hills’ teenaged population,” Derek had warned when Lydia was planning the shindig in Derek’s loft) had gone really well, and Stiles had spent most of the night listening to Deputy Parrish’s funny stories about trying to master his dragon powers. He also had gave Stiles some tips too on how to pursue his crush, since Derek had been working with the Sheriff’s Department as a supernatural consultant of sorts. Stiles had nearly had a heart attack when his dad told him Derek was going to apply for the new deputy position.
He’s not sure how he’ll be able to handle Derek in a uniform.
Scott apparently had a good time teaching Derek how to shotgun beer cans, Liam looking eagerly over and sipping his very carefully monitored single beer of the night. Stiles laughs at the memory of Derek licking away beer foam from his lips, coughing at the taste of the alcohol.
He’s pretty sure his sweatshirt is still stuffed under the couch where he shucked it during Parrish talking about Afghanistan.
"And I can easily understand, how you could easily take my man, but you don’t know what he means to me, JORDAN!”
Stiles pauses outside the metal sliding door to the loft. It doesn’t sound like Derek doesn’t know the song…it’s like he’s singing it deliberately this way.
"Jordan, Jordan, Jordan, JORDANNNN! I’m begging of you please don’t take my man, Jordan, Jordan, Jordan, Jordan, please don’t take him just because you can…”
