    Summary

    This is a collection of the one-shots/drabbles I write in the Shades of Magic universe for Writer's Month 2019 on Tumblr. We've got it all here, folks - pre-canon sibling bonding, coffee shop AUs where Rhy and Luc steal the show, serial killer gap year with Astrid and Athos Dane and their poor captive Holland, a dark AU with a big plot change, the ongoing saga of Modern! Holland and Kell being awkward and cute...

    Come for Rhy and Luc flirting, stay for... well, let's face it, you're going to stay for Rhy and Luc flirting, too.

    TW: some chapters are going to be pretty dark and have some pretty dark content and some potential mature/not explicit but NSFW stuff. I will post a warning at the top of each chapter like that, so you can just skip those if needed. I promise there's plenty of fluff, too!

    Summary

    Usually Ventus was the sort of guy who could find anything at least a little bit entertaining—When classwork became droll and his (admittedly kind of lacking) attention span waned, he tried to think of it like a game. When the miles started dragging on his psyche in cross-country meets, he tried to think of that like a game as well. When it came time to choose a thesis for his upcoming senior year, he fought tooth and nail to convince his thesis advisor, Professor Gula, that his concepts for altered national park trails were solely for preventing soil erosion threatening native flora because of inefficient design leading to desire paths by attendees.

    And not, in fact, solely because Ventus wanted to find a way to work various Mario Kart roads into his thesis. Ivalice National Park’s design being almost identical to the rainbow road for the latest game was merely a coincidence. That’s all.

    But this new courier job? Boring. As boring as it could be.

    Summary

    Starebucks is a pretty nice cafe, except for the terrible name and the strange amount of security cameras. Friendly baristas, a nice atmosphere, comfortable chairs, and now-delicious pastries. Jon, newly promoted head baker, is excellent at his job and proud of it.

    Too bad he's too clueless in all the other arenas of his life to notice he's falling in love with Martin.

    or

    The entities are all businesses, the real evil is gentrification, and Jon and Martin adopt cats.

    Summary

    Remy Picani was not always the nicest person in the world. He had too many problems with fake friends, betrayals, and family drama to trust just anyone who came up to him asking to get to know him. Throw on top the fact that he really didn't want to be going to college, and he was an underpaid and overstressed barista, well, he was a recipe for disaster.

    Emile Thomas was not always the smartest person in the world. He had too many ideas about how the world should work, how people generally acted, and how to help anyone who needed it to just turn away when someone was hurting, even if he knew it might be a bad idea to reach out. Throw on top the fact that he was studying to be a therapist, and he was an undeterred and overfriendly optimist, well, he was a recipe for disaster.

    When the ticking time bomb of trauma meets the overeager emotional medic, things get off to a rocky start. But despite it all, it's the start of something beautiful.

    Title taken from "The Only Hope for Me is You" - My Chemical Romance

    Summary

    Qui-Gon is a lonely college professor grieving his late wife, Tahl. He meets a hot young barista named Obi and feels like an awkward teenager all over again. But can they fit into each other's lives, especially when Obi's is surrounded by so much chaos?

    21st-century Earth AU. Mind the tags. Updates to this fic may or may not be sporadic as I am working on multiple things at once - weeks between updates does not mean this fic is abandoned!

    Note: as this is a modern Earth AU, familiarity with Star Wars and/or Tolkien canon is probably not required.

    Summary

    “Order for,” he squints at the slip again as he carefully sets the mug on the counter, “...Deku?” He looks up, scanning the people waiting, but no one steps forward.

    “Order for Deku,” he says, louder this time. Nothing.

    Katsuki slams the slip on the counter by the mug, rattling it slightly. “Whoever ordered the fucking pumpkin latte, come get your goddamn drink.” He glares at the losers loitering nearby, because he’ll be fucked if he made a perfect goddamn pumpkin for nobody.

    Some green-haired, freckled bastard comes up and peers at the slip. He’s distressingly cute, which only adds to Katsuki’s annoyance at being kept waiting.

    “Oh,” he chirps, “actually it’s pronounced ‘Izuku.’”

    (Izuku and Bakugou are college students who meet at Bakugou's part-time job. Somehow Bakugou winds up collecting Izuku's poems... without his knowledge.)

    Summary

    Newly sober Klaus is a surprisingly fantastic barista. The fast paced work and constant chatter does wonders for keeping his mind off of darker things. The pretty face of a new regular certainly doesn't hurt, either!

Of course, he has to sign a contract in order to work there. Let's see where this story goes.

    Summary

    After a bad diagnosis that paints an early death for Inko Midoriya, the kind mother does whatever she can to give Izuku a good life outside heroics. Buying a coffee shop? Check. Teaching her child how to run an analysis website? Done. Adopting a certain horned child using dubious means while ensuring they stay together? Already handled.

Heroics seems far away for the green bean, and he's accepted that. But just because he doesn't have a license, heroics runs deep in Izuku's soul, and soon he'll find that those that need a hero find him instead.

    Now if he could just get Aizawa to stop bugging him for analysis's during his break.

    Summary

    "Seonghwa tells him about how Hongjoong arrived at his door with a damp Junyoung in his arms and demanded entry into his apartment. He tells him how Hongjoong fainted in his living room. About how the child was perfectly fine for him and didn’t do more than whimper when it was just the two of them. How he thinks Hongjoong is somehow a trigger for him. Seonghwa tells him how that tiny human climbed into bed with him when he got scared being alone in the morning and how they went to the coffee shop in the morning to get food and how Hongjoong flipped the fuck out when they got home."

     

    or

     

    Hongjoong is suddenly raising a child. Before you ask, no, he absolutely does not need any help.

    Summary

    Ringil's life is going nowhere fast. What should have been a promising career never took off, because he can't seem to tame the side of himself who wants only to drown in drugs, sex and fights. At this point, he hopes for nothing, wants nothing, doesn't dare dream for anything, not even a satisfying long-term partner, because even in this, he's too... different.

    On this new hole he's been assigned to, at least, he can look forward to meeting the fabled Aldrain. That will be a change. Though running straight into two of them almost as soon as he's disembarked, how likely is that? And that one of them should seem to be exactly everything Ringil was always waiting for... How likely is that !?
