|Fanfictions||A Fable of Solitude|
Derek is the boyfriend of Alexandra's father. He recently wrote his own original story, A Fable of Solitude, which is somewhat inspired by The Ant and the Grasshopper, but appears to be mostly about himself.
Derek was underage when his relationship with Alex's father started. As such, they have a very large age difference, and he's almost the same age as Alexandra herself, who seems to have a crush on him. Derek and Alex's father had a fight during one of Alex's visits, as the latter cheated on Derek, but they did ultimately stay together when Alex went to live with her dad for good.
