Valentine's Day

anonymous asked:

Blackinnon- "I've never had a valentine" since we are getting into the mood and things! Thank you!

I think this is one of the cutest drabbles I’ve ever written, omg. I hope you all like it!

As she looked in the mirror, Marlene felt her heart beating fast inside her chest. Her hands were all sweaty and she was fidgeting way more than she usually did. Her anxiety grew to extratospherical levels as she analysed her outfit; she was wearing a black dress, tights and Lily’s light brown boots. It was an unusual warm evening and Marlene decided not to take her jacket with her. She felt confident about her appearance as she usually did, however, a voice inside her head kept telling her she needed to change something; her earings were whether too big or too small, her necklace didn’t match them, her dress was too long, but she didn’t want to use any of her skirts… Merlin.

She sighed.

It was a special occasion and she had been trying to make it as perfect as it should be before it had even started. It was her first Valentine’s Day with Sirius as his girlfriend and she had big expectations for it. Obviously, she wasn’t expecting much from Sirius; she knew he wouldn’t appear on her door with a flowers, neither would he have planned something cliché and romantic as James usually prepared to Lily, and Remus did to Dorcas. She knew her boyfriend better than she knew her own self, after all.

Her tension was so intense that the sound of someone knocking on the door made her jump. She glimpsed the mirror one last time and made her way to her dorm’s door. She took a deep breath and opened it, her mouth opening in shock as soon as she saw Sirius standing there. Suddenly, she realised that maybe she didn’t know him better than she knew herself.

“I thought it’d be appropriated to give you these.” Sirius said with a smirk and hand her a bouquet of white roses.

She smiled. “I wasn’t expecting that.”

“I know.” He blinked. “But I’ve never had a Valentine before and I intend to spend every Valentine’s Day of the rest my life with you, so I thought you deserved a little treat.” He said as if it wasn’t a big deal.

“That was so cheesy.” Marlene shook her head, giggling. “But I loved it. I love you.”

“I love you too, Mar.”

In which a Hibachi chef ruins a couple’s Valentine’s Day date by telling them they need a man and offering to come home with them – so they leave him a “tip” worth remembering.

I’m not normally one to complain on social media, but the service I had at dinner tonight warrants a little complaining. I took my girlfriend out to Asahi for our first Valentine’s Day together. Our chef came to grill our food for us and was asking everyone if the person with them was their girlfriend or boyfriend. He got to my girlfriend and I and asked where our valentines were. We told him we were each other’s valentines. We were holding hands mind you. Clearly a couple. He proceeds to say “well it is legal, but it’s such a waste to not have a man.” Later he continues to insult our relationship by saying he could come home with us to “heat things up.” I am appalled that I would receive this kind of treatment. I cannot believe I paid over $50 to have my relationship insulted and sexualized.

On the bottom, a receipt for $52.32. Written in the line where a tip would go:

Don’t tell lesbians they need a man on Valentine’s Day.]

Oof. (via Mashable)
