    Summary

    Zagreus could think of a million places that he would rather be besides here. Actually, he had been to those places and could confirm that they were much better. After all that he’d done -- impulsively dropping out of the college to move abroad to be free of his father’s gaze and working random jobs to prove to his father that he didn’t need his money – he’d ended up back in this godforsaken town and on his father’s paycheck.

    And Zagreus still didn’t know what he wanted to do with his life. He’d returned just as he’d left – directionless.

    OR--

    After moving back home, Zagreus is forced to take a job at his father’s grocery store in his old town. There, he reconnects with Meg, his old flame-turned-manager, and Thanatos, his childhood friend, and is forced to confront some of the things that he’d run from. And maybe, just maybe, he’ll get it right this time.

    AKA, the supermarket AU that you didn’t know you needed

    Summary

    Lucas bristles. One egg takes forever to clean up. This… this will be messy, and tedious, and he will get raw egg on his clothes and his hands and his skin and the stench will remain with him for the rest of the week. He is about to say some very choice words to the boys who are just standing there, but he bites his tongue and wordlessly puts up the yellow ‘wet floor’ sign.

    “Sorry, man, we were being stupid and we – well, we dropped a bunch of them and – uh, yeah. We’ll pay for them, obviously…”

    Pay for them? Lucas couldn’t care less. He’d appreciate it if the guy would offer to clean them the fuck up. His tongue is nearly bleeding and he looks up, ready to give the guy some friendly advice to get the fuck away from Lucas if he valued his life – when the words dry up in his mouth.

    He is staring right into the face of Eliott Demaury.

    ***

    Or, Lucas meets his long-time Celebrity Crush cleaning up Eliott's messes. No wonder he becomes a bit of a mess himself.

    Summary

    Castiel Shurley, pen name Castiel Novak, was once a confessional poetry wunderkind. Now, though, he’s 34 and hasn’t published a new collection in almost seven years. He can bemoan the vagaries of writer’s block and the challenges of parenting a teenage son while teaching full-time all he wants, but excuses aren’t going to impress his agent, his publisher, or his tenure committee. He’s in serious danger of becoming a washed-up literary fluke before even seeing middle age.

    At the end of his rope, Castiel repairs to his sister Anna’s vacation home on Lake Pend Oreille, hoping a change of scenery will ungum his creative works. On one of their first trips into town, Jack strikes up a conversation in the parking lot of the local grocery store with the most beautiful man Castiel has ever seen, and that’s when Castiel feels it: his muse coming back after a half-decade of dormancy.

    No matter what, he has to see this man again somehow. Too bad he has no idea who he is.

    Summary

    Wilbur took in a deep breath, eyes widening with realization. “Have you never carved a pumpkin before?”

    And after his admission to the crime, he carefully opened his eyes, dreading Wilbur's reaction.

    But rather than being laughed at, Wilbur just looked sad.

    OR: Tommy has never carved a pumpkin before, but Wilbur (dragging Techno along) promised to change it. It still doesn't get changed, but balloons were the next-closest thing.

    Summary

    I can get bored really easily and today's idea that came from the boredom is this! A modern muggle AU where all the Marauders Era characters work at a grocery store together. Is a lot of it going to be dramatic fluff? Yes. But is it going to include some of the greatest ships of all time? Yes. So if you're into funny and dramatic entertainment to pass the time, then you should read this. You are very welcome. CW: There will be some swearing and drinking throughout, but nothing sexual, that's not this type of fic

    Summary

    After months of writer’s block, Shang Qinghua takes a delivery job out of desperation. Like, a lot of desperation. He's got bills to pay and mouths to feed. His mouth, mostly. But when he takes the job, he's only planning on paying his rent. He's definitely not expecting that his writer’s block is gonna crash into a set of rock hard abs.

    He’s also not expecting that he’d get all moral about it.

    Summary

    Ranboo thought of himself as a rather indifferent person- for lack of a better word- when it came to most things. He loves his parents and they try their best, but they aren't always there. While his friends assume the worst, Ranboo doesn't correct them, unsure how to tell them the truth without making them worry further.


    Or, Ranboo tries to keep up and not lose himself in the labyrinth that he's constructed himself, made of white lies and reassurances to keep his friends off his case about the nature of his living situation, while also struggling with his worsening memory problems.

    However, he soon comes to find himself watching his carefully built maze collapsing in on itself, and soon, he may have no choice but to come clean

    Summary

    "Thanks for calling the Sleepy Bois Supermarket, This is Tommy!"

    "Hello, I-"

    "Oh, sorry. This is actually an automated message, dickhead. Don't tell Dad that I called you a dickhead, I might lose my job! Anyway, hang up now, or I'll do it first. Tubbo? No, get out I'm pre-recording an automated message because everybody in this place is anti-social except for me and Dad."

    "Hello! Go away, please. We are introverted and afraid of social interaction!" A new voice chimed in, Tubbo swatted Tommy away who was shouting curses at him in the background.

    "What are you doing?" Somebody else had walked into the room, actually, make that two people.

    "Who're you talkin' to?" Technoblade and Wilbur stood in the doorway with their arms crossed, looking as twin-ly as ever.

    "Tommy is breaking the rules, he's setting up a recording so that he can slack off and not answer the phone!" Tubbo held the phone out as he yelled, not wanting to startle anybody who was still listening.

    "What was that, mate?" Philza poked his head into the doorway.

    "Bye!"
