Fic: Of Five Adventures That Occurred During The Reign Of The Raven Barista. [jonathan strange & mr norrell au]
For thirty consecutive nights in September, every man, woman, and child in the Raven King's kingdom dreamt the same dream. In their sleep, they were gathered together upon a dark street beneath the midnight sky and given a task. Every night they worked, waking up completely exhausted, and still having to go to work and to school in the morning. Many decried that this was unfair, that the king should pay them for this work, or at least, their lost productivity at their normal jobs, but the king did not deign to notice. Those who worked the night shift congratulated themselves on their good fortune and advance planning. This, the king noticed, and the night workers labored during the day, and so joined the rest of the king's subjects in bemoaning this unfairness.

But thirty nights it lasted, and at the end of September, the work was finished, and they were free to enjoy the fruit and/or refreshing beverages of their labors.

For in this dream, they built a coffee shop.

Fic: Two Mugs, One Plate [bucky/steve, captain america]
Being an Incubus wasn't exactly weird when you spent most of your free time in a crappy coffee shop owned by the grumpiest Pixie in New York, so Bucky felt like he fit right in.

He'd even managed to mould the lumpy couch into something comfortable, so it wasn't too bad.

Until he walked in one day to find someone in his spot.

"Whoa," says Kaner, holding up his hands. "Dude, just trying to snap you out of your bike shop fantasy. We gotta work, you know? Don't get paid to stand around eyeing off crushes."

"I don't have a crush," hisses Andrew, blushing bright red. "I will beat you up."

"Yeah, yeah." Kaner rolls his eyes. "Maybe, if you weren't so busy crushing on hot bike shop dude."

"I'm not-- " starts Andrew, but then a customer comes in, so he shuts up, seething, because the thing is, fuck, he kind of is.

Fic: Pond Ice and the In Between [sid/geno, hockey rpf au]
“I thought your name was Zhenya,” Sid says, which—right, they didn’t talk about that, he just read it on the name tag and also probably butchered the pronunciation beyond repair. He thinks, maybe, that he should have only two states in life: on the ice, and in the office, and there should never exist any in between for him. He feels his face flush as he sort of tries to fix the situation, gesturing to his own chest, to where his nametag would be if he wore one, and says, “Your, uh. Your nametag yesterday said Zhenya? So I thought… I don’t know.”

Fic: please hang around [bollig/shaw, hockey rpf au]
His terrible lattes now come in a variety of un-asked-for flavors and are accompanied by not only flirty smiles through lowered eyelashes, but obnoxious as shit small talk too. Brandon walks in one Saturday morning and Andy doesn’t even wait for him to make it to the counter before he asks, “So where are you always going, anyway? That toque makes you look like a tool.”

Brandon blinks. “Toque? It’s a beanie, dumbass.”

“Canadian,” Andy says with a shrug. He doesn’t even bother actually taking Brandon’s order anymore, just starts making something when he sees him walk in.

Fic: measure out your life [steve/danny, h50 au]
“Hey,” Steve says, fifteen minutes past close, and Danny yelps, jumping slightly.

“How do you keep getting in here after I lock the door,” he demands, and Steve shrugs, leaning against a wall with Chin peering at the pictures Kono’s hung up, waves and surfers and brightly coloured fish.

“I wait until your last customer leaves and catch the door as they’re leaving,” Steve says.

“I took the key off Kono when she wasn’t paying attention and had a copy made,” Chin says, straightening a frame.

Danny looks at him. “I can’t tell if he’s joking,” he says to Steve.

“It’s a fine line,” Steve agrees. Chin smiles.

Fic: Tis The Season Baristas Fear The Most [derek/stiles, teen wolf]
He comes upstairs balancing a stack of lids and three bags of sugar and freezes. At the end of the bar Scott’s slowly tilting milk this way and that in the jug, listening intently to someone behind the coffee machine. A hand reaches out and corrects Scott’s grip before saying “atta boy, by god he’s got it!” And a wide smile appears followed by big brown eyes and oh, Derek is fucked.

“What the hell?” He demands, stalking towards them.

Fic: I Like My Coffee Like I Like My Men [derek/stiles, teen wolf]
Seriously, sometimes Stiles thinks that the man is a plant by the owner, who is a hippie, through and through, but just business savvy enough to pay someone hot to sit on the premises and brood up a storm like a modern day James Dean, clicking away at his computer in his leather jacket with that pensive look on his face.

Arthur has got to get out of here. This is getting wildly out of hand. "You don't know me very well."

"I don't know you at all, actually," Eames corrects, "though we could certainly rectify that. For starters, I'd love to know what kind of coffee you prefer--unless you were just dropping by to comment about my hat?"

"Oh, Jesus Christ," Arthur says, embarrassed all over again. "No, I do actually want coffee, the hat thing was just a bonus. Sorry, I wouldn't have come out to interact with humanity if I'd realized I was this out of it."

"Not a problem, darling," Eames says. "I'm in the business of providing chemical stimulants, after all. What'll it be?"
