AU where Aizawa works at McDonalds and Mic comes in and always orders a “smile” with his coffee because he wants to help this poor man learn how to smile naturally. One day Mic cracks a stupid joke that gets a genuine smile from Aizawa and he’s so infatuated that he ends up pouring half a can of sugar into his coffee. As Mic walks away with his disgusting drink, he realizes that he has a terrible crush on the half asleep cashier who gets his coffee every morning.
The next day he comes in for his coffee, Mic is too self-conscious to ask for a smile. As he gets into his car, he notices that there’s a note written on his coffee cup sleeve.
“You’re the reason we switched to giving customers sugar packets,” and then there was a messy number scribbled underneath it. Mic never added a number faster to his phone.
this is a very strange and sudden realization, but i’ve never considered fanfic writing as something productive, when it is - i put together deliberately-chosen words, use my imagination, my knowledge of language and storytelling, put my own emotions into each paragraph to bring to life stories of the characters we all love and hold close to our hearts, how is it nothing when it’s so much?
When you turn your reading into a self care activity:
Do not underestimate reading as a self care practice if it makes you feel better. Read escapist books if they’ll speak to your soul when you need it. Find emotional books that’ll make you feel less alone. Pick up funny books if you need a little cheering up. Take these words that people meticulously strung together for you and take comfort in them.
