When Derek was a baby, he didn’t like being touched by anyone who wasn’t his parents or his nanny. He got fussy when anyone else tries.
His family is rather normal—though extremely successful. Derek does have a lot of pressure on him, though, to live up to certain expectations.
Dereks parents drive a black Range Rover.
Derek worries about what his parents think of his grades.
His parents care more about his grades than him.
His parents didn't seem to want to even be at the school.
When he was little, he remembers his parents watching the movie Julian was in, but he doesn't remember him.
Derek liked getting his way as a young child. He doesn't want to be touched by anyone who wasn't family, he will only eat what he wants to eat, and if he's looking at something and you're in the way, he will whack you.
His life's mission then was also to be hyper. A LOT. He downed sugar like crazy. He liked being all buzzed up. Some mornings, he'll have so much sugar that he'd just stomp around the house yelling.
Also, Derek liked playing. So he'd do all his homework and do all of it right ahead of time so he can go out and play immediately. He'd go down to the next street and whack his baseball bat into the gate of the Wrights' house until little Logan was allowed to go out. When his fluffy-haired friend would emerge, the two of them would play with the neighborhood kids and trounce 'em.
He plays baseball with his dad sometimes on vacations.
Calvin and Hobbes get really excited when Derek comes home.
His little sister is Amanda.
Amanda once caught pneumonia and scared Derek badly.
If his little sister was being bullied, he would drop everything and beat whoever was doing it.
Derek and his sister Amanda both have brown hair and she's got big light brown eyes.
Derek will never leave Amanda with Logan because Logan doesn't know how do deal with kids.
Derek loves his sister and says shes growing into a heartbreaker. He'll kick anyones ass who lays a hand on her.
Whenever Derek goes home, he'll scoop Amanda into his arms and give her cuddles. She always follows him like a shadow when he's around. She thinks hes awesome and popular.
Derek has never missed taking his sister Amanda to her first day of school. Ever.
When given playdoh, he turned it into various candy shapes and took a photo for Amanda.
Amanda asked Derek, "Does he (Logan) love Julian very much?" and Derek absently said, "Yes, of course he does." He didn't realize what Amanda was referring to.
Derek makes Amanda sleep when she's sick.
For National Brothers Week, Amanda drew Derek a picture.
Derek and Logan became friends because they once shared a room, Derek feels rightly that he is the only one at Dalton (most of the time) who will put up with Logan's idiosyncrasies and Logan feels the same about him.
He has seen Logan cry.
Derek and Logan first met because they were roommates. No one in the Stuart side of the freshmen wanted to sit next to Logan, mostly because they knew who his father was. Derek sat next to him, but the other side was empty. Julian arrived late (as usual), wearing glasses and not even in uniform. He sat next to Logan, the only remaining empty seat. He knew who he was, and he wasn’t afraid of him. Logan was the same, so in the end, all three of them got along. They’ve been friends ever since.
He used to board with Logan before Logan became prefect.
Logan’s scared off a couple of Derek's girlfriends because he’s so moody.
If Logan was to do something stupid, eg. overdose, Derek would yell at him and shake him out of it (all done out of a place of caring, I assure you). In the grumpy disgruntled you’re-my-friend-and-that’s-why-I-do-this kind of take-charge attitude.
Most embarrassing moment in another country: (facepalm) Having to repeatedly explain to a bunch of girls that Logan doesn’t speak their language. In more than one way.
Derek and Logan have both read/are reading Blackwater.
When Logan walks past him without a word, Derek knows that trouble is a brewing and makes preparations to calm the storm.
Also, Derek liked playing. So he'd do all his homework and do all of it right ahead of time so he can go out and play immediately. He'd go down to the next street and whack his baseball bat into the gate of the Wrights' house until little Logan was allowed to go out. When his fluffy-haired friend would emerge, the two of them would play with the neighborhood kids and trounce 'em.
Logan started to want to learn fencing after he and Derek used to play games with toy swords and wanted to learn how to beat him.
On pet day, Logan kept tripping over Derek's Corgi's, while Derek laughed at him. Logan threatened to kill his dogs, in which Derek just replied "Riiight. Now where did you put Jules' hedgehog?" to which Logan answered that Sonic was still with Julian.
Derek is going as Jim Kirk for Halloween. When Logan asked why, he replied, "Oh come on. Genius? Hit with the ladies? So me. Besides, Captain's gold looks good on me." Logan rolled his eyes and called him hopeless. Derek asked Logan what he was going as and Logan replied, "The most heinous monster I can think of, I guess," to which Derek replied with, "So....you're going as your dad?"
Derek and Logan grew up in the same gated community--but that's only as kids. They separated when Ernie moved the family away. Which is why Lo went to Lionscourt and D went elsewhere. It's why he and Lo sat next to each other in Freshman orientation. They remembered each other.
Derek was a little surprised by how much his friend had changed--but it's to the advantage of their friendship too: because Derek knows how good Logan can be, and how he can really be past the anger bursts. He knows that the little Logan he used to play with as a kid was still in there, just buried underneath all the issues. So he's sticking by him, thick and thin.
Logan At A Formal Event
Logan had been coerced to be in some formal event thing with his father and there's a girl named Crystal there convinced she's marrying him. She THROWING herself on him. She's named their CHILDREN. D and Jules are so going to enjoy this. She named their children Claude, Octavius and twin girls named April and May because she loves those months.
The whole "I'm not really into vagina" thing doesn't seem to factor for her. Derek offered to take one for the team and go get this girl himself. Julian has misgivings about letting Derek take her for the team, because of his glorious track record and all, but all Derek had to say was, "Well I thought we've established that we're all not very nice people."
Derek has dogs back home.
He denies ever experimenting with a boy.
He once dated a girl whose parents insisted on sitting on the table next to them and basically insisted on being six feet away from them at all times.
Derek will consider a one night stand and doesn't mind getting with an older woman.
He hasn't read past Harry Potter five.
He is known as a bit of a womanizer, as he is said to have dated any cheerleader he can get his hands on.
Derek likes it when a girl can take the lead in the relationship.
He hates it when a girl whines about her cracked nails.
Derek has the largest house of the Stuart trio.
He is very conceited.
Derek would help out a girl if she got sick on a date.
He's very competitive at sports.
He prefers earbuds over headphones.
If he liked a girl, he'd get her jewlery.
Derek could sleep for eighteen hours.
Derek is a light sleeper at least—he’s always paranoid about getting work done
Derek isn't ticklish.
Derek has been concussed before.
He dresses like he belongs in a country club - collared shirts and pressed pants. He sometimes goes casual though.
His wish would be that he could get things right for once.
He's perfectly capable of killing someone with his bare hands.
Derek likes his coffee as strong as humanly possible. He might as well have swallowed coffee grounds.
When one of his girlfriends is upset, he buys them things.
His middle name is Patrick.
Derek has never experimented with a boy, whether he be drunk/drugged/dared.
Right now he drives a Corvette.
Derek worked slowly but steadily when learning to crochet, but he finished.
Derek isn't a huge fan of rock music, but he likes some songs.
He’s the kind of person that secretly rocks out rather than publically shows he’s interested in a song.
He can sing.
Before he knew that she was Wes' sister, Derek may have hit on Romany Hughes. That...didn't end very well.
Is insanely good at tennis.
He's hung like a horse.
Sometimes sleeps naked.
Derek’s four little black books are his conquests.
Currently, Derek has different ringtones for each of the girls contacting him.
He knows how to ride a horse.
Derek does not believe in fashionably late. He always arrives early or on time for all his dates and appointments.
If for some reason Derek is late, then it is really something beyond his control.
He has never considered self-harm.
Derek has two corgis Calvin and Hobbes
He's dated a couple of Italian girls before.
Once, all four of the girls Derek was seeing were PMSing nearly simultaneously--it went without a hitch.
For a boy who drinks a lot of coffee, Derek doesn't like dark chocolate for some reason. He just says that "when I drink coffee, I like it to taste like coffee...when I eat chocolate, I like to eat the kind I eat when I was a kid."
Derek's first kiss was when he was 12 with a girl named Amy. She was one of his schoolmates. He said it was alright the first time, the next ones were better.
Derek was sobbing during Deathly Hallows - used up all the tissues.
He likes frozen yogurt, but only with fruit.
He can back handspring.
Derek says he's not really discerning. But when faced with equally hot girls, he'll often pick a brunette.
He hasn't learned a martial art, but he did take up a little boxing.
He has a pool/jacuzzi kink.
When asked his favorite kind of cookie, Derek says fortune cookies.
He sometimes uses fortune cookies to pick up girls.
Derek smells like aftershave and clean silk.
Derek has a shirt that says "Step aside coffee. This is a job for alcohol" for certain days.
Derek used to have sex without a condom but doesn't any more due to the fact he doesn't want any pregnancy scares
Derek once got a scare that he caught an SDI but it was just rug burn.
The Stuarts are aware that while Derek may be a playboy and a raging arsewipe when it comes to sports practices, he's not 100% evil. Like, he has his limitations. He understands what "no" means and backs off and he makes sure the other dudes know it. Like when he'd be in a party and some guy would be getting all up some girl's (or guy's) grill when the other person clearly said no. He tends to swoop up to them and demand to know what the person thinks he's trying to do with his girlfriend/boyfriend. It helps that he's strong because of all the sports and he usually manages to scare them away. Then he checks if the bothered party is okay and then goes back to whatever it was he was doing prior.
All boys and some girls had a jousting competition. Everyone rode a horse, and used an eleven-foot log to try and knock off their opponents. The houses Windsor, Stuart, Hanover and Lancaster have agreed that whichever house "wins" will be served by all the other houses in a big cookout. Derek is jousting for House of Stuart.
Derek was facing off against Colby from Lancaster. Derek was hit full on but was so focused he didn’t allow himself to get knocked over. Colby was hit full on as well and was almost knocked off the horse but manage to hold on. When Derek made it back to Stuart side, he was holding himself very stiffly but refused help and was getting ready for round two. Logan tried to take his armor off but Derek swatted him away and told him he was fine.
Even Julian came down to the side and told Derek to let people help him, but Derek yelled at him again. When the boys go off again for round two, they clash hard. Colby’s lance hit Derek’s more than anything, but Derek drove his lance right into Colby’s armor, sending him to the ground where he lay still. When Derek made it back to Stuart side, the others had to hold him up and carry him off. He was just happy that he won.
Wes and Derek were supposed to joust in round two, but Casey and Tabitha created a fight in the stands so the whole jousting tournament was called off.
Derek's longest relationship was two months and was with Casey. He refuses to talk about it and Casey refuses as well.
He said he wouldn't kiss Casey if she was the last girl on earth.
He's fully aware of what he did to Casey but his pride refuses to let him grovel.
Often dreamed about Casey.
Derek and Casey tended to climb into each other’s rooms.
Every day, while they dated, Derek would send Casey a little cake. It would be a different kind every day.
Prima got tired of being kept up after the first three weeks of Dasey having sex and tried to make sure they settled it at Stuart after.
Derek climbed up to Casey's window just to give her a goodnight kiss before dropping back down and running off.
Derek had Casey on his lap one day, and he was feeling her up then he said "Why are you wearing these huge granny panties?" so she punched him in the jaw. With her brass knuckles. Julian and Logan clapped.
Derek liked a girl in elementary school but she moved away. Unknown to him, it was Casey. She dyed her hair brown, took her mothers name and started to be more badass than sweet.
What He Did To Casey
"He…erm…it was Casey’s birthday in Dobry and people totally went all out, but Derek, for god-knows-what reason, was not present. Turns out he was plastered to high heaven and some people saw him with his hand up some other well-endowed girl’s blouse in a parking lot.
You know, Case is a good girl, and she actually ditched the party her friends had planned for her for weeks to go look for him—and considering this was after their most recent serious squabble—and she found him in that compromising situation.
And then she and D had an insane fight in that parking lot itself, screaming at each other (with a great many words that may be unprintable and quite a few vicious accusations—sure he was drunk and angry, but D really went overboard with this one, seeing as how he’s the one caught at adultery here), and the practically to the point of physical fighting.
It took some Dalton/Dobry intervention of the Sara, Sydney, Logan and Julian kind to break the whole shebang up. So…yeah."
Derek is the shortest of the three Stuart trio, by an inch and a half.
If he had to kiss Logan or Julian, he'd kiss Julian because he's less likely to kill him afterwards.
Derek, as almost the mother of the Stuart trio, pushing Logan to take his pills, and being the first and only one to notice Julian's attraction to Logan.
He figured out that Julian loved Logan when he saw the way Julian looked at him when he sang.
Derek would be very happy if Julian and Logan got together because he's sick of babysitting them.
The Stuart trio spend weekends in each other’s houses, and they’re taking turns on each others mansions in the Hamptons for Spring Break.
He claims that the weirdest thing to happen to him is becoming friends with Logan ["gay temperamental senatorial son"] and Julian ["award-winning primadonna of the century actor"].
He thinks that Logan and Julian are attractive and he thinks it'll attract more girls because they're all good-looking.
He plays tennis and plays games against Logan and Julian.
When Logan goes off the wall with his moods, and aggression, it’s no secret that he physically takes it out on the people around him. This includes Derek and Julian. As you saw prior to Winter Fest, Logan had hurled Derek onto a wall. Derek fights back too, just to rattle Logan to recovering. Julian has never hit Logan, but like Derek, he had been on the receiving end of a few hits and throws.
He hinted about it a couple of times during conversation, especially after he had a talk with Murdoch (who had been told by the Senator about Logan’s situation). But Derek and Julian didn’t grasp the situation until Logan actually flipped out at some point. It startled them a little (and nearly all of Stuart House), but Derek and Julian simply took control of the situation to calm him down. I think that was also the first time Logan realized he actually had friends…because they stuck around in spite of that.
CP on the saddest thing he's said to her: “What am I supposed to do?! What am I supposed to do besides watch them both fall apart! I’m losing the only damned friends I’ve got and I’m standing here watching—!”
On the whole Jogan situation: "(grumbling over his homework) I think this is the stupidest damn thing I’ve ever heard of and it could be resolved in under an hour if people just decided to wake the hell up or just grow a pair. "
When they fight verbally, Julian, Logan and Derek strike where it hurts. All of them. They know each other well enough to know where to hit where it counts.
Derek was once too sick to leave bed. He was complaining and whining the whole time. Julian and Logan brought him food to his bed and used sock puppets (Toe-gan and Foot-ian) to patiently explain to him that “Baby Derry” was too sick to do anything but lie in bed. (Of course, he was furious, but it wasn’t like he could get up and chase them…XD)
Yes, Jules, Lo and Derek cried the last time they watched the first part of “Up”. This was a couple of weeks ago.
When there’s something on the menu that has something one of them (Lo, Derek, Jules) is allergic to, none of the other two will eat that dish either.
Derek and Logan let Julian stand in the rain if he feels like it that day. One of them will throw a towel at his face when he comes back in.
Though sometimes he’s not aware of it, Logan will always have either Derek or Julian (or both) listening from somewhere when he performs with the Warblers.
He has seen both Logan and Julian naked.
Derek's pet dogs like Julian, but hate Logan. To quote Derek, "They can probably sense the ice queen vibe radiating from you."
Julian, Logan and Derek once sang Slaughter Your World (complete with dramatic hand movements) at the top of their lungs in Derek’s room together.
Logan told him about Julian's confession in private. No one in the third floor has talked about what Julian had said otherwise. So Derek is the only “outside” person who knows that Julian had confessed.
His best memory, was their European holiday. They were looking out at the view, and they told each other they'd be friends for life.
Freshman year study group: Derek is doing Logan's calculus, Logan is doing Julian's social studies homework, Julian is doing Derek's English paper. When they finish, they pass papers to each other and then tackle the next set.
Logan and Derek rehearse with Julian a lot, so both of them aren't bad actors.
Amanda says the funniest thing she ever saw Logan, Julian and Derek do was when they were all trying to grab a phone from each other and they fell in the pool. The boys yelled and splashed each other.
Derek is the best skiier out of the Stuart Trio.
Julian and Logan were rolling around in the snow while skiing, and Derek told them to knock it off or they'd get too cold. Then he dropped them in front of the fire at the lodge because they were wet and freezing, and they didn't listen to him. He then left them to go get some hot chocolate.
Logan and Derek once laughed themselves to collapse in this one clothing ad Julian did that appeared on TV. Julian retaliated by smearing Icy-Hot into their underwear. ....that was a truly interesting Stuart morning. Best part: They didn't know it was him. Julian told them the Twins did it. When they asked him why he wasn't hit, he simply replied, "I'm not wearing any underwear today."
Last summer, Derek, Logan and Julian went to Italy together.
Freshman year, Derek, Logan and Julian went to France together.
One time in freshman year, Julian lay on the grass, letting the rain hit him. Logan lay next to him and asked, “What are you doing?” “I like rain.” “…it’s cold.” “You don’t have to stay out here.” And then Derek showed up and lay on the other side. “So what are we doing?” “Rain.” “Oh. …it’s cold.” “Would you guys just go inside, I’m trying to enjoy this!” The other two just laughed a little and stayed quiet.
Sometimes Derek and Julian feel like they’re Logan's personal assistants. To which he just blandly replies that they are.
When Julian was adding cream and sugar to his coffee, Derek asked, "Ugh. Why do you even drink coffee if you're just gonna do that?" to which Logan replied, "Leave him alone, he doesn't complain when you drink that coffee syrup you have."
Derek certainly wants his friends to be happy, one way or another. This is why before hellnight, when Julian tried to knock on Logan's door, Derek let him. He stood and watched, willing Julian to do it. But Julian couldn't. And Derek didn't make him. Instead, he helped him leave, because they've tried the other avenue, and it didn't happen, so he was going to let Jules try the other way. However it goes, Derek just wants his friend to find happiness. Whether it's with each other, or somewhere else.
If Julian had to choose between being the awkward third wheel on a date with Logan and one of his boyfriends, or sitting quietly in a room watching Derek have loud angry sex, he'd pick Derek.
When Logan was having one of his…moments. It was the night before and he was worked up, and he neglected to do one of his papers. Same with Derek, who was the one who had to calm him down. (Julian was out cold.) and so then it was time to hand it in and they were going to catch hell for it. Julian knew what was happening when everyone else started taking out their papers. And his two friends were empty-handed.
Of course, since he wasn’t able to contribute to helping last night, he felt he had to do something. So what he did was he pulled out his Sidekick, flipped through it, and erupted into hysterical tears. I’m talking actual he-could-win-awards-for-this kind of hysterical tears.
Everyone was gaping at him, and the teacher was asking what was wrong—he sobbed something about his father, movies, career, threat of drugs, scandal, outward ruination—it was a big mishmash really and not very intelligible…and so the teacher got worried and tried to calm him down, and Julian started screaming at him in dramatic rage, and so then Logan and Derek took the cue, tried to grab him back, but he shook them off and swept out of the room, sobbing.
And so of course, Lo and Derek were given permission to find the primadonna and calm him down. Lo and D made it to the next hall and found Julian straightening up his hair and Julian suggested they go out for lunch. To which Lo and D grinned and agreed to and they had a two hour lunch.
An Intimate Moment
Freshman year, Derek and Julian found out for the first time how badly Logan’s situation with his father was. It involved a lot of screaming from both Wrights and culminated with Senator Wright saying some choice barbs before leaving.
Lo was so angry he couldn’t think or move or do anything, and D and Jules of them pulled him back from that state and stayed with him all night in the same room, mainly talking about their families and the different situations they all had.
In the middle of the night, Logan got up and took a walk on the rooftop. Derek was still asleep, but Julian went up after him. Unlike Derek, who would’ve immediately assumed that Logan would do something stupid like maybe hurling himself off it, Julian simply sat by the roof access door with a blanket and let Logan walk around the rooftop.
Presently, Logan saw him and wanted to know why he was awake. Julian only replied that it was because Logan was awake, and asked why he was awake. And he only answered that it was because he couldn’t get back to sleep.
It was a satisfactory answer to both and they stayed up in silence. Logan passed out first. When he woke up, he had Julian’s blanket and Jules was gone, and it was morning and Derek was glaring down at him. Jules was asleep like a cat in the living room.
Julian was sitting, waiting in his room, looking very tense. He was staring at his cell phone, which was in the middle of the table. That was how Logan found him, and Logan looked at Derek and asked, "How long has it been since he's moved?" "Uh, about three hours," Derek rolled his eyes. "His limbs are going to atrophy." Julian didn't seem to hear and just kept staring at his phone like he was waiting for it to explode. Logan walked in and set a cup of coffee down next to Julian. Julian blinked but did not move. "You're seriously just going to sit there staring all day?" Logan demanded, irritated, arms crossed over his chest. No reply from the actor.
Derek shook his head and said, "You have to relax. It's not life or death." Julian's eyes glinted with venom when he looked at Derek. Derek threw up his hands and walked away from the door, rolling his eyes. Logan sighed and sat on Julian's bed. "He's right." "Shutup." Julian replied, barely moving his lips. His eyes were refocused onto the phone. Logan added, "And for the record, I still don't approve of this." "Your concern is noted," Julian muttered. After a long pause, Logan said in a different tone, "...they'd be crazy not to want you." Julian didn't reply, but his shoulders relaxed slightly at the words. The two of them were quiet. Until the phone's ring broke the stillness and Julian jumped, and he fell off the chair with a gasp.
Logan took the opportunity and scooped up the phone. Julian jumped up, livid. "Give me that!!" he yelled, and Logan easily held it out of his reach. "Logan, give it back!!" "No, not until you calm down!" Logan replied, struggling to keep it away from him, amusement in his eyes. "Oh that's rich, coming from you?!" Julian flushed as he tried to struggling against Logan for the phone. He jumped him. The two of them landed onto the floor, still struggling and fighting over the floor, yelling enough to get Derek running back to the door. He took one look at the scene and groaned. "Logan, just give him back the stupid phone, you know he's not going to give it a rest until he finds out." Logan sat up, his blond hair a mess and Julian did the same, also looking disheveled.
Flushed, he grabbed the phone from Logan who looked far too amused. Hastily, Julian checked the phone. Derek raised an eyebrow as Logan sat, trying to catch his breath. Julian sat back on his heels, staring at his phone in silence. "Well?" Logan finally asked. "What did they say?" Julian didn't move. Logan nudged him. "Come on, just tell us already." Julian raised his eyes to his two friends and didn't have to say anything. Derek started to laugh and Logan grinned.
Julian leapt onto the nearest person, who was still Logan, of course, screaming. "I've got a Golden Globe nomination oh my GOD!!" and he released his startled, laughing friend and started bouncing off walls. Logan got up, shaking his head with a laugh as Derek kept laughing from the doorway. He threw a pillow at Julian. "Idiot, we told you so."
Michelle had heard Logan sing, at home, many times. She even heard him sing with Julian once or twice at their house. It wasn't a duet. It was just them singing along to the radio and then Logan moves over to the piano and he starts playing the song. It was a really casual thing, you know?
Something you just do on a whim. Derek doesn't sing, but he laughs at them. They sang Little Wonders once, even Derek hummed along a little. And they sang King of Everything while bouncing around the living room.It was right after the Senator left.
Why They Put Up With Logan
He’s our best friend. We know what he’s done. And we know why he does it. If everyone gave up on their messed up friends, would anyone in the planet have any friends?
Logan may be the way he is, but you haven’t seen him when he’s looking out for you. He’s not just going to flake out. He’ll say he does, but he really doesn’t.
One time in freshman year, Julian lay on the grass, letting the rain hit him.
Logan lay next to him and asked, “What are you doing?”
“I like rain.”
You don’t have to stay out here.”
And then Derek showed up and lay on the other side. “So what are we doing?”
“Rain.” Logan answered.
“Oh. …it’s cold.”
Julian winced. “Would you guys just go inside, I’m trying to enjoy this!”
The other two just laughed a little and stayed quiet. There was a long pause, where there was only the sound of rain drumming down on them.
"You're really not going to leave, are you?" Julian finally asked, sighing.
"Nope." Derek smiled.
"And there's no way I can make you leave?"
"You can try, but I'm not leaving here," Logan replied, closing his eyes.
"And if /I/ leave instead?"
Logan snorted again. "You? You're not going to leave. You couldn't if you tried."
Derek smiled to himself as Julian rolled his eyes.
The rain poured on.
For Logan’s birthday, he was at home in New York. Derek surprised him with a new keyboard (it’s the one in his room now). Julian was in Tokyo. He flew 12-hours nonstop (actually, 12 hours 53 minutes, but you get the drift) to make Logan’s birthday. He gave him a laptop. It was the kind of laptop that’s specifically made to handle and manipulate audio recordings and stuff.
They didn’t actually have a big party—Michelle fussed over them some, and they’d just started trying out Logan’s new stuff when they saw that Julian was passed out on the bed. Logan kind of just smiled, pulled a blanket over him and moved with Derek someplace else. They all went out and had dinner later on, though.
Out Past Curfew
So then there was this one time that Derek was out past curfew back in sophomore year. Highly illegal in Stuart's stringent standards. But he had a date and it just got really late. So he was all nice and locked out and basically anyone who would allow anyone in past curfew would get a yelling from George, the current prefect. So of course Derek tried to get a hold of Logan and Julian, in a desperate attempt to have them both let him in.
The two of them opened their windows and basically trolled the hell out of Derek by pretending that they had no intention of letting him in unless he promised certain things to them. It didn't help that Logan was in possession of Derek's unfinished term papers and that he threatened to accidentally send them through a paper shredder while Julian had one of Derek's black books open and a cell phone in hand where he was preparing to call Derek's many many girlfriends with.
Derek was pretty much stranded out there at the mercy of his two friends for a good hour and a half or so, but there was really nothing he could actually do, because if he just went waltzing in, news would reach Murdoch and then he'd be in trouble and he really wanted to keep a pristine record (more or less).
Well they still had to get him into Stuart without anyone knowing, but that was difficult because most of the Stuarts were up in the common room discussing academics and doing homework and swilling coffee like it was going out of style. So Julian walked into the Stuart common room--and fainted. In the ensuing panic, Logan clicked open the back door, let Derek in, and the matter was closed.
Julian's Sleeping Habits
Julian can sleep anywhere. He'd just be sleeping there, in the corner, and Derek and Logan would find him there. Derek would take the water bottle and the headphones and Logan would scoop Julian up and carry him sleeping back to Stuart. He'd be too tired to wake up, really wake up.
He'd stir a little, but Logan would shush him very gently and just keep carrying him. And the Stuarts would look up when they would come in, and mouth, "What happened?" and Derek would just shake his head at them. They'd take him back to his room and set him back on his bed and let him sleep.
He'd wake up disoriented, knowing that this wasn't where he fell asleep, but he'd see some food next to him and a note from Prefect Wong that he's not to attend class until properly recovered. And there'd be a postscript, written in Logan's familiar handwriting, "Not that we'd expect you to listen to him, but take it into account."
And Julian would smile tiredly at the postscript not the Prefect's order, and he'd sink back into the pillows still holding the little note.
One time, D’s manic overworking in sports, academics and girls finally got him sick. When Lo and Jules went down to get their morning dosage of caffeine and didn’t find D already there and reading through something, they knew something was wrong. So they went upstairs and they heard a cough inside D’s room, and then they went in all smug as though they had waiting for this very day for a long long time.
They forced D to stay in bed. He wasn’t happy, he was furious. And he had a billion instructions for them to tell eveyone in his lab group/class/team/etc, and he made them pass all his work for the day, but Lo and Jules got their own back when they rubbed it in his face that he was working to hard and he had to be helped to sit up to eat and all that… :D Really, Lo and Jules make terrible (yet competent) doctors for the day.
Looking After Each Other
He was rather impressed with how well Julian took Logan's behavior. Derek was sure that the "new" Logan would turn off someone as diva-tastic as Julian can be. But Julian stuck by them too, and Derek really respected that. He knows that there really aren't many people who would. So he looks after Julian too, because that kind of loyalty and friendship is something Derek really holds on to.
Something all three of them do, to be honest. Maybe Derek knew that he'd found certain friends that first night the three of them gathered in Stuart at midnight, drinking coffee. He thought they were an odd bunch--the perfection-driven athlete, the angry gay singer, the workaholic primadonna... But hey, whatever worked.
How He Kept Logan Away From Julian
That took some serious fighting on my part. Not only did I have to steal his copy of Jules’ keycard (we all have keycards to each others’ rooms), but I also had to really just had to keep arguing with him and tell him that Jules just didn’t want to see anyone because he wasn’t feeling well.
It helps that he’s easily pissed off because he just went, “if he doesn’t want to be helped, then fine.” and just stalked off.
He has his own little library in his room.
Derek is the captain of the football(soccer) and rowing teams.
If Derek were to discover it was Adam who left the message on the Stuart door steps, he’d tell someone first instead of going after him.
He likes to study once in a while.
He's captain of two sports teams and that takes up most of his time.
It is the dear ambition of many Windsor boys to punch him just once.
His parents came to Parents Night.
He would kiss Merril. Though Spencer has strong opinions against that.
Three out of five girls that were there for him at the fair were - Tabitha, Heather and Louise.
He had always been a light sleeper—he had been ever since he woke up to being completely covered by what must have been glue and feathers thanks to one time the Twins decided to break in.
His favorite subject is P.E.
He’s never had a detention – his record is immaculate.
One time, Wes retaliated against Derek (for torturing the athletes) by stealing his phone and made the ringtone "Hey! Listen!" Navi from Zelda. Logan and Julian mocked Derek with "Hey! Listen!" for a while after that.
Derek is Stuart's condom supplier.
Sydney doesn't like Derek at all because he's hit on too many Dobry girls and she can't stand "that sleaze."
Derek and Justin don't like each other. They're very competitive.
Derek's always been this strong, full-on power figure. Even varsity members hated him because he was so strong.
For Childrens Day, all boys and girls dressed up as their favorite characters as a child. Derek dressed up as Green Lantern.
Derek goes commando in school uniform sometimes.
Derek flirted with Merril just once, in the school coffee lounge. Merril smiled and poured a searing cup of chai into his pants. Julian and Logan laughed until they couldn't breathe.
Julian's query as Derek was in the clinic after Merril poured her scolding tea over his lap, "So did it castrate or was it just a circumcision?" And Derek flung an ice pack at him.
Derek was first place voted Most Likely to Have A Meltdown During Senior Year on the online student forums.
Three large boxes arrived at Stuart one day. Rory and Milo were staring at them, wondering what was going on. Logan saw the boxes then yelled out to Derek that his condom shipment for prom had arrived. Rory then looked scared so Bailey pulled him and Milo away, telling them, "Don't think about it. Pretend it's not happening, that works." Austin stood beside Milo and Rory, watching in fascination as all the condoms were taken upstairs. Bailey kept trying to coax them into pretending it wasn't happening.
When the boys went visiting, Drew and Satoru had a violent pink vial. Satoru explained it was, "An extremely potent love potion slash aphrodisiac." but Han snatched it away before they could give it to anyone. He explained, "You don't want him holding onto this, it'll make him and any person within his radius desperate for sex that very instant." to which Logan said, "Then it'll have zero change on Derek?"
Logan's been taking his distresses out on the fencing team. Apparently, slaughter is ongoing. Blaine's debating on taking him on just to diffuse him. Derek's just watching, eating chips, occasionally wincing.
Justin suggested that Charlie and Hope's relationship was like the one in 300 where Sparta had to ask his wife's permission first. Charlie just grinned and agreed while Hope beamed and preened a little. Logan then piped up and said it was like that for Derek when he was still with Casey, which Derek considered for a moment before agreeing.
[A photo of the sun shining through thick clouds] "Here is actual footage of what happened when I was born into this world!" Some Stuarts then pelt him with coffee beans. "This is EXACTLY why rational people like Sydney can't stand to be in breathing space of you, D." in which Derek replies, "Please, you know she wants the "D"" then gets pummeled by all the Stuarts with coffee beans. Logan completely ignores them beating him up.
Derek As Prefect
For Derek, should Logan be stripped of the title, he would be willing to take it on, though I don’t advise it for him. Not because it would affect their friendship (this is not an issue for either of them), but because Derek is already under a lot of stress that he has never ever spoken out on (that would mar his idea of being “perfect”).
Not only is he holding together his two shattering friends (looking after them, keeping them alive, for starters), but he’s also got a lot of girlfriends, a strictly maintained GPA that remains at the 98th percentile, and juggle captaincy for two different sports clubs.
The fact that Derek is even still standing is incredible—and he has never spoken one word about all the things he’s trying to make “perfect” in his life. If he takes on role of Prefect, I’m worried he might have a breakdown and it’ll do him some serious damage health-wise.
Dobry Prom Dates
So there was one time at the height of civil war between Stuart and Windsor when there was an unofficial contest between the boys about getting girls to come to one of the school events. Windsor had the Twins, Wes, and David to do all the talking for them, so they were pretty confident about their chances.
But Stuart House had Derek, and, as anyone knew, that was the equivalent of bringing a gun to a knife fight. There was a tally - yes, there was an official tally - where a bowl of blue stars designated how many girls the Windsors were able to invite and red stars that indicated how many the Stuarts were able to. So for about two weeks, Dobry Hall was raided by Dalton boys. And the day before the dance, Windsor was confident that they had roped in thirty five girls. And then Stuart presented their rake, half of which was Derek's alone.
They hit the forty mark without issue. Which would've signaled the end of the entire shebang... ...had Jeff not returned from vacation and presented Hanover with sixty eight stars. So. Contest over. Nick states that while the rest of the boys went through Dobry for the girls, Jeff went around the rest of the schools in the area. Pretty smart, actually. Apparently Jeff went to the different schools with flyers about the dance, just being helpful as usual ...and they all just said YES.
He has never seen Julian so scared (in the Adam situation) outside of a movie.
He tried to stay awake with Julian when he was frightened about his stalker, but eventually fell asleep.
Sometimes his girlfriends make him watch Julian's TV show and then get mad when he comments on it, [“What do you mean, he can cook in this show?! Julian’s culinary talents revolve around toast.”]
His most trouble is when he has a girlfriend and they are more interested in Julian.
Derek wants to be there for Julian at night to make sure Jules is sleeping because he only seems to fall asleep when someone he trusts is in the room with him.
He and Julian found some Something Damaged fan fiction and Derek says there's a lot of guy on guy action on the internet.
About S.D: "(snorts) They’re probably as spoiled as Jules is. For all I know, they’re leeching off his popularity."
Derek knows that Julian gets along all right with his cast members. He doesn’t think they understand who he really is, though.
Derek doesn’t like Sonic who he calls a ‘prickly hamster’
Jules sometimes calls him "King D"
Derek's worst memory--basically hearing his friend get kidnapped and he can't do anything.
Derek knows Julian had been in Paris, but he doesn't know exactly how big a deal it was. He did ask, "How was your trip to Paris?" and Julian just didn't want to talk about it, so D figured that he had a bad time with castmates.
Julian knows that when the light is on in Derek's room after he finishes reading his script, he's pulling an all-nighter, and brings coffee.
Julian tries to avoid Derek when he has a date. Often because he knows it bugs Derek when the girl he’s supposed to be dating is squealing about him.
When Julian Was Scared
What do you mean what was he like? He was scared. I didn’t even have to tell him to stay put, he stayed in bed all that time. White in the face and jumping at sudden noises—if he was in Windsor, he’d have died of heart failure with all the racket in there.
He’d keep saying he was fine, I think he was trying to get himself out of it. I tried to make sure he ate or even slept a little, but he’s still having problems sleeping right now and he doesn’t eat a whole lot. He’s distracted. I think he’s thinking a lot of things over right now.
Julian's Trust In Derek
He's like this solid rock--he's reliable and he's a source of security and foundation. Maybe that's why Julian trusts him with things he couldn't tell Logan. Like he knows Derek wouldn't freak out... Maybe he'd get pissed but he wouldn't interfere in ways that Julian didn't want him to, because Derek knew he wouldn't want him to.
That's probably the reason Derek is the only one who knows both Logan and Julian very very well. Logan has seen Julian really cry only once, but Derek's seen it more than once. Because Julian lets him see him. He wouldn't think Derek would see it as a weakness.
