Mildly AU, Sherlock/John. Sherlock's irritated when change comes to his frequented café in the form of a new barista, John, but finds life has more flavor with him around. At his friend Mike's recommendation, Sherlock takes him on as an assistant. He quickly finds himself steeped in the subtle yet brilliant ways John brings out the best in him-- like tea leaves in water. A quirky romance told in 100-word snippets. university!Sherlock, med-school!John
Disclaimer: I don't own BBC's Sherlock, otherwise it wouldn't be fanfiction.
This little piece of work here will be written in 100-word snippets except for every 10th chapter, which will be 1000 words, just to make it last a little longer. The prompts I'm using are LJ's 100colors and reader submitted prompts.
Chapter 1: Bean There Done That
(See the end of the chapter for notes.)
Bean There Done That
There was one coffee shop that Sherlock Holmes favored, not for its coffee but for its absolutely mouthwatering tea. Now, he did enjoy a coffee from time to time, but his first and true love when it came to Bean There Done That's various beverages was their Earl Grey.
Over time, Bean There's cocoa-colored chairs had become occupied by university students, but they kept quiet, which was all he needed. There was a regular barista there who knew exactly what he liked and how he liked it.
However, one night after an uncharacteristically stressful case, his barista wasn't there.
Color was prompt #54: cocoa.
