THIS-IS-REALLY-LOVE

An Imperfect Cup of Coffee

Hello, @ifirestone​, I’m your secret Santa for @mlsecretsanta​ this year! I had so much fun writing this, and I hope you enjoy reading it!

Also, thank you @ninoirs​ and @zoenightstars​ for helping me so much with the texting sections (and in some cases rewriting them entirely). The trouble with texting like a grandma.

Another note: the contact names are what the recipient has in their phone (so, ladyblogger is what Nino has as Alya’s contact name and so on).


After racing to reach her 7:00 class on time only to find it cancelled, Alya was ready to go home and sleep through the rest of her morning. In fact, she had rushed out the door so fast, she hadn’t even grabbed her morning coffee, which probably explained her sour mood and pounding headache.

She barrelled into the first coffee shop she could find and scanned the store for anyone who could help her. Of course, no one was there. Given how the rest of her morning had gone, she shouldn’t have been surprised.

Alya groaned and turned around, ready to stomp her way out of the shop, but she was stopped by a light and cheerful voice from the back. “Be right there!”

After a second’s hesitation, Alya returned to the counter.

When the woman in the back walked out, Alya was beyond thrilled that she’d chosen to stay.

“What can I get for you?” she asked, much too bright and happy for the hour in Alya’s opinion, but she was pretty enough for Alya to forgive that.

“I’ll take, um…” Alya made a show of looking over the menu, but really, she was looking at the light color in the woman’s cheeks and the way the light caught in her dark hair. “Whatever you have with the most caffeine.”

“Coming right up.” She chuckled as she tapped a few buttons on the register. “Will you have it here or are you taking it with you?”

“I’ll drink it here,” Alya answered instantly.

Friend: I think Rey should have joined Kylo to rule the galaxy.
Other friend: Why? Then there might be more chaos.
Me: Yeah, but Kylo and Rey know each other. They’re like the other’s half. Rey knows Kylo better than anyone else. She could probably convince him to have a peaceful rule, not a violent one. With Kylo being the leader of the First Order and Rey being practically the leader of the Resistance, or at least their biggest asset, they could both tell their forces to stop fighting and live in peace.
Other friend: You know what? That might actually work
Friend: Yeah, what if Kylo is acting this way because he’s alone? Maybe Rey just needs to be there for him and he’ll come around to being good even without Rey convincing him.
Other friend: Okay, you guys convinced me.
Us: :D *high five*

you ever just start crying because you love someone?? and talking to them makes you want to live and it breathes new life into every cell in your body?? it’s so weird to think that this, literally this, is what it is to have your soulmate. to go from being a kid and not thinking i’d live to see the age i’m at now, to being engaged and making plans for our live together. for our future together. he makes me want to have a future. and i’m going to have one with this boy and it’s legitimately indescribable.
