    Summary

    Dan knows how Meant to Bean runs. He’s had to learn—considering it’s the family business. It was a part-time gig in high school, but he’s been steadily working for two years, grinding his way through what seems like hundreds of bags of coffee beans and using his paycheck to take classes at community college. During his entire run in the coffeeshop, nearly five years, he can count on one hand the number of drinks he’s spilled outside of that probationary period when he was a pink and pimply faced fifteen year old.

    This last week, Dan has spilled coffee everyday; coating the countertop in iced chais, vegan mochas, and even a low-caf-vanilla-frappe. Sarah huffs a laugh each time, tosses him a towel, and adds a small tally to the chalkboard she’s tacked up on the wall.


    Another coffeeshop AU. Because they’re necessary.

    Summary

    "Hey," Stephen says, wandering out to see what the racket is about. Even drunk, Gabe doesn't usually make that much noise coming home.

    And Stephen was right, it's not Gabe making the noise, but Jared who apparently stumbled into every wall in their foyer before giving up and sitting on the floor where he's currently struggling to take his shoes off.

    Summary

    (Written for the YCMAL Holiday Exchange)

    “Uh,” Andy stammers. He can feel himself turning red, and hopes he can pass it off as the exertion from tryouts. “So this is going to sound weird…”

    Goat Guy grins. “Lay it on me. I love weird.”

    Andy takes his helmet off, shaking his hair out. “Does your mom sell ponchos? And every Christmas try to buy you or your siblings a husband?”

    Summary

    Francis has an idea of what Patrick does for a living, he can put two and two together and get four after all. It’s illegal if Patrick’s avoiding a paper trail, it pays well, and it’s dangerous. There are a couple ways that adds up and none of them are pleasant, but Francis puts it out of his mind. His job isn’t to speculate on his patients’ possible mafia connections. So Patrick comes in with bleeding gashes and missing teeth, and Francis sews him up and doesn’t ask. He’s one of the unluckiest people Francis has ever met, and he leaves it at that.

    Until Patrick shows up holding his guts in, that is.

    Summary

    “You know,” Stephen whispers, defeated, but also exasperated.

    “Of course I know. It has not been kept a secret.” He considers walking up to Stephen’s sisters and dancing with one of them, as an excuse, but he fears if he did Stephen would leave the ball and not come back. “Congratulations.”

    “What for?” Stephen lets out in a hiss. Gabe dares to look up at his face, and sees a frown there.

    “For your engagement, of course,” Gabe says. He feels heartbroken as he says it, a cloud of hurt firmly stuck on his throat. “I feel very happy for you.”

    Summary

    Liam is dancing his third of the night when the Commander walks in. Liam knows he is not the only one looking, but so many other faces around the ballroom are taken aback, uncertain. They have no idea what to make of the man who just entered a fashionable do in full-length trousers and the plainest boots ever to be shined by a valet.

    Liam knows exactly what he wants.

    Summary

    From Hobgoblin Holiday Cheer: “ One year, there was a Jewish intern working on the Canucks social media team, and she and Gabe had been forced—well, bribed with boxes of frozen Gryfe’s bagels—to play dreidel on camera and discuss “healthy” latke recipes until Gabe snapped and revealed his real opinion of “healthy” latkes. Stephen still hasn’t stopped laughing about the result.)”

    This is that video.

    Summary

    Chanukah isn’t the Jewish Christmas, but Gabe does enjoy when the two holidays coincide, because the Canucks will sometimes get enough of a break over Christmas that when Chanukah overlaps it, he and Stephen can be home for Christmas with the Petersens and also for the Markson party. This year, that’s not gonna happen. This year, Chanukah is in early December and the Canucks’ schedule is all on the West Coast. Gabe has missed a lot of family holiday stuff over the years. He’s missed a lot of Chanukah parties. He usually misses the Chanukah party. It’s fine.

    Summary

Being friendly goes a long way in the service industry, and Jake’s a friendly guy.

    He isn't expecting David to walk into the store, walk back into his life, three years after they broke up.
