for the first few weeks after they got back to earth minkowski was convinced that she would get assassinated the next time she went outside and eiffel was the one that snapped her out of it
“first of all, don’t be ridiculous; you don’t have to leave the house for someone to assassinate you–”
“second of all, i need you to drive me to the mcdonalds drive thru because i’m too lazy to walk anywhere”
so she does. and the spell is broken.
koudelka needs some time to adjust to his wife miraculously returning from the dead space so minkowski and eiffel bunk together for a while
they can’t possibly drive each other crazier than on the hephaestus, anyway
neither of them find sleeping super easy for a multitude of reasons so it’s a toss-up which of them will find the other watching tv and eating peanut butter out of the jar at 4am
eiffel uses this time to catch up on his megalist so minkowski ends up knowing more about star wars than she ever cared to
guitar hero jam sessions on the wii before the sun rises. there are several noise complaints from the neighbors
minkowski does late-night scrapbooking. she wishes she never let doug find out she has glitter in the house
every wall is covered in posters, playbills, and anne’s drawings. eiffel jokes that it’s renée’s biggest scrapbooking project yet
The Great Ice-Cream War of May, which will never be spoken of again
on the subject of cooking, everyone is always surprised;
eiffel can make virtually any conceivable combination of foods taste good together, even if it looks a mess and is 90% fat and sugar. when even that’s impossible, he just orders takeout and everyone’s happy
minkowski, on the other hand, acts like she knows what she’s doing and always presents meals beautifully, but is more of a classic amy santiago “i ran out of salt so i used baking soda” case
“wait, whose toothbrush is whose again?”
there’s a tally score of how many times eiffel has set the apartment on fire stuck to the fridge
Hello hello hello! It’s me, Froggi, back at it again with the requests I should have gotten to a million years ago. This is like the best thing I’ve written since I made my blog though so hopefully that’ll make up for me being late.

Cozy, inviting, and seemingly set in past decades, there’s something indiscernible that draws you to the cafe that lies on the busiest street corner in Chicago. It’s a place you’ve visited countless times; the employees now know you by name and vice versa. On a particularly rainy day, you find yourself padding into the building, the warmth inside soothing your chilled skin. It’s rather empty, which is out of the ordinary given its reputation, but it’s not at all surprising to see the lack of patrons. It is only Tuesday, and with the downpour outside, it’s no wonder you can count the number of guests on one hand. The chime that sounds throughout the cafe alerts one of the waiters, and he bounds out from the kitchen to offer you a greeting. He’s tall, with chocolatey brown eyes and lips that curve up at the corners naturally, perpetuating an enticingly cat like expression. A few strands of soft dark hair fall into his eyes, and he lazily blows them aside with a harsh puff of air before throwing a welcoming smile in your direction. “Hey, sexy,” says the waiter, poking fun at your perhaps overly casual attire. “Do you not have an umbrella? You’re soaked.” You breathe out a sigh, climbing onto one of the large and rustic mahogany barstools that line the counter. “No, I lent mine to a friend.” Is your response.
Johnny looks you up and down, pursing his lips in thought, before scurrying away. Out of sight, you can hear the whirring of machines and the clinking of glass and it’s not long before he returns, a drink in hand. It’s a tradition, so to speak, for you to leave your order up to Johnny every time you visit. He’s good at what he does, and he’s always thinking of new combinations of ingredients to put together just the right beverage to suit your mood. On days like this, your drinks are usually served hot, varying between overly sweet flavors with heaps of cream or something more simple, usually a hot tea with only a dash of sugar.
Today, you guess the drink is going to be on the sugary side, judging by the mountain of whipped cream and chocolate shavings that dust the top. When you take a sip, though, you’re pleasantly surprised. It’s sweet, but not overbearing and there’s a faint hint of citrus. Your eyes widen, and you throw an excited thumbs up to Johnny as you gulp it down, the liquid heating your throat and warming you down to your toes. “It’s my newest concoction.” Johnny muses, bowing as if he’s in front of a relentlessly cheering audience. “I’m impressed. I’d say this is your best work to date.” You say, “What’s in it?” “That, my friend, is top secret information. I’m afraid I can’t tell you, though you know I hate to turn down a pretty face.”
You haul your bag into your lap, pull out your laptop and boot it up. “That’s fine; I’ll just ask Nathan.” You counter, and Johnny’s eyes narrow. “You wouldn’t dare.” “Try me.” You taunt, taking another sip of the drink.
Johnny, one of your 3 roommates, works and makes a living as a waiter and residential pretty face. There’s a handful of people that attribute the cafe’s popularity to Johnny’s devilishly good looks, and you can’t say you blame them; the days Johnny works are usually the cafe’s busiest. Girls practically line up to see him, no matter where he goes. Of course, it’s an unspoken rule that absolutely no one, under any circumstance, is allowed to flirt with him, unless they enjoy being gently but brutally rejected.To most, it’s painfully obvious that he already has eyes for only one girl. ‘Most’ meaning everyone except for you, the girl in question. It’s routine for Johnny to constantly be flirtatiously throwing quips in your general direction, which you reflect back at him with ease. Everything about him, from the way he dresses to the way he acts, screams “ladies man”, so you suppose you’ve sort of embedded that idea into your brain, projecting his flirty behavior onto everyone he interacts with. “Just ask her out already.” Is a phrase that’s commonplace among Johnny and your two other roommates. Among the four of you, it seems that the only one out of the loop is you. Of course, Johnny isn’t one to push. While it kills him to be so close to you without actually being able to call you his, he’ll take what he can get. He’s a man who’s all about subtlety; he’d rather drop hints for decades before he finally grabs you by the shoulders and scream to the heavens that he wants to go out with you. Which, unfortunately for him, is something he probably needs to do. You don’t consider yourself ditzy and clueless by any means; in fact, you’re at the top of your class in the university’s art program, but that’s another story. Point being, you can’t exactly take a hint, no matter how obvious Johnny might make it. Presently, Johnny’s leaning against the bar, asking you, “What brings you here, by the way? The weather outside is total shits; I didn’t expect to see you walking through it.” You’re in the middle of gulping down more of your drink when he continues. “Don’t tell me it’s because you wanted to come see me? I’m flattered, Y/N, I really am.” You click your tongue. “Wow, you’ve got me figured out,” you deadpan, “I actually just came to study, since it’s so loud back at the apartment.” “You couldn’t study at the library?” He asks. “Nope. Power went out, so the school’s got it closed off.” Is your response. Taking one last sip of your drink, you beckon him over, “Come help me.” He shoots you a, “I’m going to get in trouble for slacking off.” though he doesn’t make any move to decline your request. “No, you won’t. Everyone here loves you.” You say as he climbs into the seat beside you.
He scoots closer, brazenly leaning against you with his chin propped on your shoulder. You don’t question the action, but rather the sensation is sends shooting down your spine. It’s not uncommon for him to have his hands on you; often times he’d have you in his lap or an arm slung securely around your shoulder, and it was never considered more than a mindless action between friends. After all, that’s the dynamic your friendship is built on. So why, you ask yourself, does it send your heart into overdrive? Of course. It’s because you’ve got a hopeless crush on the boy. It’s an idea you’ve only nurtured a small number of times, afraid that the blossoming adoration you have for the waiter would cause you to do something stupid, like telling him how you feel, should you entertain the notion that yes, you do like Johnny.His eyes are trained on the brightness of your laptop, and he’s silent as you pull up a number of windows, ranging from PDF files to a random playlist you found on Youtube. Johnny does wonders in helping you study. Physics, your weakest and his strongest subject, is the monster that you try to tackle as you sit tucked away into your own little world inside the cafe. Occasionally, he’ll reach a hand up and point to something you might have missed in your equations, and he’ll murmur answers to your questions. It’s when a sudden change in your playlist has you switching over to Youtube that Johnny lifts his head from your shoulder, prompted by a man seemingly in his 40s entering the cafe. The music that plays through your headphones isn’t something you could see yourself listening to, but when paired with the bright colors of the accompanying music video on screen, it serves to almost hypnotize you. Nine men dance with powerful movements on screen, and the song fluidly moves from hook to bridge to chorus, and it’s during the second verse of the song that something catches your eye. One of the boys, dressed in a candy red jacket with gold chains and auburn colored hair, moves to the front of the group, and your jaw drops. That guy looks just like Johnny! When he moves back to your side, you point to the screen in astonishment. “Check this out. That dude looks exactly like you!” Johnny’s eyes widen a slight bit, and he furrows his brows in confusion before his features relax and he cocks a goofy smirk. “Dude, maybe he’s your long lost twin. You know like that movie The Parent Trap!” You joke. A breathless laugh pulls its way from Johnny’s lips, and he slaps a hand to your back, between your shoulder blades. “Pretty sure I’d know if I had a twin, Y/N. That dude in the video? That’s me.” He casually throws out. “Eat it, Johnny. I don’t believe you.” You say, but upon giving it more though you realize that the idea is entirely plausible. Plus, it doesn’t take much convincing on Johnny’s part to have your jaw dropping in disbelief. “Wait, so you’re telling me that you, Johnny, the Johnny that works making just above minimum wage as a barista, the Johnny that does a shitty impersonation of parrots 24/7, are the same Johnny who’s a famous Korean pop star?” Johnny nods, as if it’s something as simple as 1,2,3. You blink a few times, and it only takes you a few moments to fully come to terms with the knowledge. After all, it doesn’t seem far fetched for Johnny to do something so… Extra. “Is that why you have so many girls up your ass?” You question, jokingly. Johnny leans back in his chair. “Maybe. It didn’t work on the girl I want, though, so what’s it really matter?” As he speaks, he fixes you with a gaze that’s perhaps a bit too serious given the lighthearted nature of the situation, but it nonetheless has your throat going dry. “Bummer.” Is all you manage to mumble out. “Yeah. I guess she didn’t really know about it until just now. I bet if she knew I was so famous, she’d already be falling at my feet.” Muses Johnny, casually despite the rapid beating of his heart. “Maybe now that she knows I can use that as leverage to get her to go on a date with me.” “Why don’t you ask her, then?” You counter. At this, Johnny leans forward, face entirely way too close to yours as he searches your expression for anything that could hint at deception, to give away the idea that you’re playing him like a fiddle, serving as a warning for him to back away because he doesn’t want to deal with the embarrassment of being rejected by the one girl he’s head over heels for. Finding nothing, he takes the opportunity to speak, tongue darting out to wet his lips before he asks, tentatively, “Will you go out with me?” Your lips quirk up in a little grin, and you can see the tension leaving Johnny’s frame when you nonchalantly reply with, “I’d love to.” The waiter has a smile stretching from ear to ear throughout the rest of his work day.
On Saturday, when he texts you, telling you that he’ll be picking you up once he gets off of work, you find yourself smiling stupidly at your phone. You shoot a quick ok text, worrying your bottom lip between your teeth before typing out another message. “Oh and by the way, you don’t have to be famous to take me on a date.” Followed by another text, “I’d have said yes any day.”

Hope you like this anon! I actually used a real cafe and the weather report for Daegu today lol. Thank you for requesting and enjoy! <3
You tapped away on your computer as you finished the last sentence on your essay, closing your computer and releasing your tense limbs onto the cushions of your bed. There are just a few more weeks of school, You told yourself as you took a few deep breaths. All of a sudden your phone rings from your desk on the other side of the room, the buzzing and vibrating of your phone creating a hollow noise against the hard surface. You ignored a few more rings before finally getting up to answer what must have been the fifth or sixth call.
The silence and peace that sweeps through the streets of Blüdhaven is comforting at first. There’s no sudden calls for Dick to be called out onto the streets, no yelling or sirens. It makes you feel whole. Secure. But it’s only the calm before the storm. So you take in every peaceful moment you can.
Dick is resting on the couch, an arm slung over his stomach and the other covering his eyes. He just listens to whatever you’ve put on. It’s an old movie, something he’d seen with Bruce, he can remember that like it was yesterday but he just can’t remember what the name of it is, so he scrunches his nose up, lips pulled into a frown as he tries to remember.
“Careful, pretty boy, wouldn’t want your face to get stuck like that.” You tease, holding a bowl of popcorn and a few boxes of candy. Chocolate and popcorn was always a good combination on movie nights.
He throws his arms up in the air towards you, making grabby hands and gently nudges you when you straddle his lap. “Hand over the popcorn, babe.”
“And I thought you wanted me.” You concede, watching as he grabs a handful of the popcorn and scoots up the couch to sit up straighter, taking you along with him.
You restrain yourself from eating the popcorn like a neanderthal, like Dick, rolling your eyes and trying to stop yourself from laughing at the very unpleasant way he eats it straight from his hand. The movie hasn’t really piqued your interest like it had Dick’s, so you lie out, head resting on his shoulder and try your hardest to keep up with the silly plot.
Dick turns his head to face you and although his neck is in a horribly uncomfortable position, he manages to smile and brush back a strand of loose hair. He’s always been brave, or maybe it was foolishness, maybe even arrogance, and he was never one to hide from his feelings, because if that’s the one thing he took from Bruce, don’t run from your feelings, embrace them and make them work.
It’s something that he’s been meaning to say but he just was never sure when was the right time to say it, but now, now was the perfect time.
“You know, I don’t think I’ve loved someone as much as I do you.” He says, voice unwavering and strong.
“You love me?”
He nods, pushing you closer to him and smiling widely. It’s a simple enough show of affection, but it still makes your heart feel like it’s going to beat right out of your chest. The tip of his nose is pressed against yours and you almost go cross eyed trying to look him in the eye because of your proximity to each other. You can see the slight bend on the bridge of his nose from being broken and not set properly to heal and his eyes are shining brightly, looking at you with such adoration.
i legitimately just finished reading your heathers aus. you've ruined my life in the best possible way, and i thank you form the bottom of my heart. also just heathers in general, yes please. if you have more, i would not object at all ;)
I actually have a heathers prompt sittin in my inbox waiting for me to get to it!
Oh, I forgot to write Cory, he was so good and their voices always combined very well together. But to be honest my favorite voice combo of Glee were Darren and Chris. Darren with a soft and deep velvety voice, Chris with a high crystal clear voice... they just combine perfectly. Every single duet with their perfect armonies. And they shared the spotlight, individually and together, combining those voices created to combine, like Darren's dark chocolate for Chris's sweet and sour strawberies.
You’ve just about killed me, anon. Thanks for the feels. Gonna have to pull out one that literally had me and my pals screeeeeeeeeeeeeeeaming when we first heard it…oh damn…
There are many beautiful lessons that Undertale teaches us,
but there is one lesson that has struck me time after time.
Monsters have been trapped Underground for, what we can
speculate, over a millennia. More than a thousand years of being trapped under
a mountain, with limited space, with the threat of overpopulation looming over
everyone’s heads every day.
But despite these circumstances…
No one ever loses hope.
Everyone holds onto their dreams.
Because even if things are hard…
They always hope for a better future.
They never give up.
They never, ever give in.
And all these things really spoke to me.
Because I think we’ve all been trapped in the Underground at
one point in our lives.
Well that was a monday well spend… I worked on this all day and now it’s almost 12pm. I needed something to encourage me because I’m really good at negativ thinking and that destroys pretty much everthing. I had a job interview the other day and I got so nervous that I didn’t know what to do or say.. It’s not the first one I had in my live. I had plenty of them but they are always nerve wracking. Talking with the boss for a job or about the job when you are working there.. At some point I always forget that they are people.. Just like me.. and there is no need to be nervous. So I decided I want to do something to remind me. I always think that it is a good thing to combine my negativ thoughts with something I like. So here it is. Maybe it helps someone else as well..
I am positiv that I have made plenty of mistakes but english is not my first Language and it is 12 pm.. so pls bear with them.
