Oh anon, I am dying for a serial killer!stiles and FBI agent!Scott who has been brought into the case because he’s stiles’ bff and probably the only person who can predict or at least think how stiles would act? And because of ro, claudia being stiles’ first victim is something i want.
(and also scott is totally a FBI agent because of his dad, because scott wants to prove he can be a better one than him)
there are so many things i need in my life
[all I know about the FBI I learned from Thomas Harris and post-Veronica Mars fanfic. You’ve been warned]
"You know why you’re here," Deaton says, grave, and Scott can’t bring himself to say anything. Only nod.
He’s just a few weeks out of Quantico, a junior agent. Still green. He shouldn’t be assigned to a task force like this. On the off chance he was — is — he shouldn’t be doing anything besides pulling files, mapping out the details seniors agents don’t have the time for, mopping up the mess that gets littered behind them.
"The bodies," Scott says. "It’s Stiles."
You tend to spend a lot of time reexamining your childhood when the kid you grew up with turns out to be a serial killer. Were there signs? Was there something you should have seen? Not even as a trained FBI agent, but as a person. How can you not have noticed? What kind of person were you? The large, dark woods Stiles’s pets kept disappearing into — the days he spent at his mother’s grave, like it was his favorite place in the world. You were his only friend, and was that part of the problem, or the design?
On the worse days Scott wonders if there was something he could have done. If he’d been a better friend. If he’d been a little better at protecting Stiles from bullies, asthma be damned. If he’d gotten Stiles some help.
Dr. Morrell says that’s normal. The questioning, the guilt, the 20/20 in hindsight. And Special Agent Scott McCall knows that Stiles was antisocial long before he slipped into psychopathy. Knows, now, that Stiles’s mother was his first victim. He knows more about Stiles than anyone else on this planet, and now Scott’s going to use it to find him.
"I don’t deserve it," Scott says. "The chance, I mean." It’s the kind of thing his father would say.
Deaton’s hand is heavy on his shoulder. “You’re going to help us catch a killer.”
I’m going to help you catch my best friend, Scott doesn’t say. It’s stupid to still think of him that way anyway.
