    Summary

    AU- Dean Winchester, known to the world as the gun-slinging western writer Kurt Smith, loves his career as an author, getting to spin his dreams of grand adventure and heroic deeds into best selling novels. Where blood, guts and glory may be Dean’s choice of entertainment, fellow author Castiel Novak, pen name Emmanuel Anael, chose the more philosophical route, using religion and narration of humanity’s condition to drive the plot of his tales. The two could not have more disdain for each other’s style of storytelling, which is made very much known through a happenstance meeting turned heated blow out. As fate seems to have a very interesting sense of humor, Dean and Castiel find themselves accidentally frequenting the same cafe after their disastrous first encounter, and both stubbornly decide to make The Caffeinated Moose their permanent go-to writing destination despite each other’s infuriating presence. Through spilled coffee, ruffled papers, blossoming words, and steam-fogged glasses, will something other than ink flow between these two talented writers?

    Summary

    Levi is the hot, grumpy owner of the extremely popular punk themed Titan Bakery (we're talking like Hot Topic selling scones instead of skinny jeans).

    He's successful, likes his job, and has time enough to focus on his other passion in life: his punk band, "My 104th Mistake" .

    Until of course, a tall blonde man by the name of Erwin Smith sets up shop right next door, begins stealing his customers, and distracting him from the most important aspect of the job: cleaning up the shop.

Kakashi is teaching professional ethics - and Yamato is the lost and long-suffering postgrad under his supervision. Sakura is addicted to Icha Icha. Pein is a hipster barista and his latte foam art is a thing of beauty. Hidan is naked. Naked with a goat. )

    Summary

    (read this in the movie announcer voice)
    In a world. Where angels. And demons. Secretly coexist with humans. Accidents. Don't always happen accidentally.

    Dean Winchester was looking forward to his last year of high school when he found himself invited to a party being thrown by kids from the private school in town. A chance encounter with a pretty girl makes him the target of a jealous would be boyfriend but a cursed rabbit's foot turns what should have been a lethal encounter into the surprise of a life time.

    Castiel expected to slip through his last year in private school quietly, like all his previous years of high school, but when he's invited to a house party and runs into a nameless omega his life takes a wild turn. He wakes up the next morning to discover he's half bonded to his soul mate and only has five days left to find them before his time runs out. There's just one problem he doesn't even know their name.

    This Fall worlds collide in an epic Cinderella story: You're Not The One I Was Looking For.

    Summary

    “It’s not competition, Sam. That place sells overpriced coffee and tea, and calls it something fancy to justify the price. And they probably serve shitty, gluten-free, vegan-happy pastries that taste like sod, too. We sell doughnuts. That’s all there is to it.”

    But that wasn’t all there was to it.

    ***

    Wherein Dean and Sam Winchester inherit their father's donut shop, some tattooed hipster named Cas opens up a coffee joint across the street, and chaos ensues in the form of too many pastry-related puns.

    Summary

    Steve’s a better friend than a messed-up ex-junkie like Bucky deserves. After they got back from Afghanistan, Bucky was willing to let the world wash him away, but Steve found him and dragged him back out. Now they’re working at this coffee shop by the university where Steve studies art and the college kids make Bucky feel about ninety years old.

    Well, all of them except for Steve’s new friend Natasha — hazelnut cappuccino, for here — who sits by the back table poring over thick poli sci books. She’s got a wicked little smile that makes him think there’s more to her than cardigans and crossword puzzles, but what does he have to offer that she couldn’t get somewhere else?

    (It's a coffee shop AU. Because I wanted one.)

    Summary

    BakerStiles! and WriterPeter! with just enough reese’s for the perfect combination.

    “I had to go through three test taste auditions before Laura would agree to hire me before she left and all because her crackpot uncle comes in every day and has a sweet tooth. But does said crackpot uncle try my food even once since. Nooooo. All he does is sit there drinking coffee and eating peanut butter cups while typing away at his stupid computer.” Stiles rants as he adds the extra shot of caramel to Peter’s latte. And not because the first time he did Peter let out a moan that sounded like he was having hot animal sex but because that’s just how Stiles always makes it.
