Hi Wil! A few years ago, you accepted my friend request on untappd & it made my day. I was quite into the craft beer scene & met people who are among my closest friends now. I stopped drinking about 18 months ago. I was finding that my depression and anxiety meds weren't working as well as they could be. I was in a dark place then, however, life is brighter now. I have a 3 month old daughter and she is everything. Do you miss beer & all it's fun? Do you think you'll return to brewing? Thanks :)

I quit drinking almost 18 months ago, too! Some days I miss beer, but mostly I don’t even think about it. I’m not an addict, so it was more of a life choice than a sobriety choice, but I have stayed away because I also noticed that my meds were less effective (and I just wasn’t able to lose the weight my knees and hips were telling me I needed to lose).

I miss brewing, but I’ve been baking bread and roasting coffee and brewing kombucha, so I’m pretty much scratching the same itch as I did with brewing.

Congratulations on being a parent! Remember: it’s supposed to be challenging, and that’s okay.

anonymous asked:

We've all read MC catching the RFA cheating scenarios.. but can you do a RFA + V & Saeran catch MC cheating on them scenario?

Yoosung

- He couldn’t breathe.

- The two of you weren’t supposed to hang out today, you said you were hanging out with a friend, but. Friends didn’t hold hands like that, with the arms tangled together, sharing a few fleeting kisses and giggles

- He wanted to puke.

- The last time he had managed to kiss you was about a week ago, just one single chaste kiss, and he had respected you since you didn’t want more. He just thought you didn’t want to be touched, again, that day.

- But this other guy was getting all your attention? Hugs, kisses- Oh my god, he was slipping his hand into your back pocket.

- Nope. He forced his shaking legs to move before they gave out. Move from the busy street, move away from the shop he was going to visit, move away from buying that gift he was saving up money for you.

- Coffee dropped, chest constricted- It’s a wonder how he managed to get home, especially without sobbing, but thankfully he managed to not lose it completely until he hit the steps for his small dorm room. 

- Then he just sobbed. Sobbed on the steps- First propping himself up with his hands, falling halfway up the stairs, and it took a good five minutes until he could continue up them, stumbling into his room, crumbling against the door and wailing

- He doesn’t want to admit it, what had happened, at first, but when he calls Zen crying about it, Zen wisely tells him he needs to not follow you like a puppy anymore- That it’s obvious you don’t care about him.

- Then its Zen and Seven over at his dorm, trying to console him, trying to let him drink just a tad to let him get rid of some of these horrible feelings

- He’s not the one to send you the “Don’t contact me again,” text, but it doesn’t mean he didn’t wish he never had to send it in the first place.

Jumin
- He rarely felt jealous. He could count the times he had, and all but two could be connected to you.

- Jealous with how you would give the others more attention than him, jealous at how some other men looked at you, jealous whenever you laughed at another party-goer’s jokes. But  at the end of the day, he knew the two of you belonged to each other.

- His love would never stray from you, and you had promised the same in your vows. Why would he ever doubt you? You had proven yourself worthy of trust over and over again, and he knew better than to follow in his father’s footsteps.

- Apparently, you did not.

- After one RFA party, the crowd slowly dispersing, he couldn’t locate you. There were still a few guests here and there, but most were leaving. Were you trying to convince a guest to come again to the next party?

- In the ‘back’, a hallway that guests weren’t supposed to really go to, seemed empty, until he heard a few breathy groans.

- Ready to put a few guests on a ‘Do Not Invite’ list, he opened the closet the noises were coming from, taken aback by seeing you tangled up with a guest.

- The man darted past Jumin as he stared you down, a frighteningly cold look in his eyes.

- “What- No. Why?” He couldn’t find the right words, anger and betrayal mixing together, confusing him.

- “He… He’s not so empty like you are.”

- He slammed the door shut, anger finally winning him over.

- He didn’t tell the other members, just a harsh remark that someone else needed to handle the guest list for next year, before he up and left.

- In the car, however, when Driver Kim asked where you were, the rest of his emotions finally got to him. He threw up the divider, trying to focus on anything other than the pain in his chest.

- Empty. Had Zen been right all along? Granted the man had stopped saying such things a while ago, once the marriage took place, but…

- Perhaps he had been right. Because he certainly felt empty now.

- Home, he locked himself up in his study, trying to come up with all the reasons why this happened. He had bought you gifts, bought you clothes, cars, anything you wanted.

- And with slow horror, he realized he had let himself be played, just as his father always had been.

- Empty… He could certainly become that, if it meant preventing such agonizing feelings from appearing again.

Jaehee
- She had her doubts with the relationship at times.

- I mean, she’s never dated a woman, she’s never really felt this way in a relationship before. While she’s had relationship experience, but… This was completely new.

- She wasn’t used to being too scared in public at times. Granted, the place the two of you lived wasn’t too against this kind of relationship. The most they got was confused looks, or being mistaken as close friends.

- But in bigger places? Or around the workplace? She kept it as quiet as she could- Too scared of what might be said. She’s seen how some couples get treated, and she never wants to risk that with you.

- Of course, it kept her worried at times. Waiting for coffee to brew, for pastries to bake- Those quiet moments where she was forced to do nothing but wait, entertain herself, those thoughts creeped in.

- Was she good enough for you? You said you were happy, but were you? The two of you couldn’t kiss in many public places, couldn’t go hand in hand everywhere. Such simple happinesses were taken away, so easily.

- But your actions always quieted those thoughts, made her forget them.

-  Except for now, as she saw you walking down the street with a man who’s arm you were entangled with.

- Her breath stopped as your eyes met, and the man, oblivious, asked who she was.

- “Friend of yours, honey?”

- It didn’t leave much to question. She could be wrong, assuming too quickly, but your reaction and unable to speak confirmed it all.

- “No,” She said, putting her sunglasses back on. “Sorry, I thought you were someone I used to know.” And she left it at that.

- When she got home she put everything you had left in a box. Numbly, coldly, just folding your clothes and wrapping your cups in paper. When a single box was filled, her house void of your things, she drove to your house and left it on your front steps.

- Back at her house, she just leaned against her closed door. 

- All those thoughts, those worries…They had a reason for existing, didn’t they?

Zen
- He’s the perfect man, how could you even consider doing such a thing to him?

- That’s usually how he quelled any worries. Attempts at an inflated ego, showering you with as much love, doing everything romantic in the book.

- That’s why, as he watched your hands slip into the back of another man’s pants to give a firm squeeze, he couldn’t understand where he had went wrong.

- His coworkers liked going out for drinks. Usually he didn’t go, but when he did, he always tried to get you to come along. He enjoyed spending time with you, even at shitty bars. 

- He didn’t think that you might fancy one of his coworkers, and that’s why you agreed. Didn’t think when he excused himself to the restroom, that you might have exchanged numbers with one. Or two.

- God, was it just this guy? More?

- Zen was supposed to be rehearsing right now, with another member, but he forgot his script, only to find you fiercely making out with another man. Who didn’t even compare to Zen

-…Did he?

- “Mc?”

- The two of you froze, you looking dumbstruck as the guy untangled himself from you and left as quickly as he could. In the past, Zen would have grabbed the man and threatened to beat him within an inch of his life, but now that he was older, calmer, he knew to try to push that need as far away as he could.

- He knew that you were to blame, not the other man.

- “Why?” That’s all he could manage out. His throat was aching, his eyes stinging in such a ridiculous way. He knew he probably sounded pathetic, but he deserved some answer, some kind of fucking answer.

- But, at first, you didn’t respond. You tried to just shake your head and walk off, but instinctively he grabbed your wrist.

- “Mc–”

- “You really think you’re the greatest man ever, don’t you?”

- What?

- “Do you want another rumor against you?”

- His heart stopped. FInally pulling his hand back, he watched you grab your purse and leave.

- Was…Was he really that bad?

- The rest of practice was done for. He couldn’t focus, couldn’t keep his emotions straight, and kept missing his queues. By the time he had gotten home, his numbness shattered.

- Finding comfort in alcohol was something he never wanted to do, but it was the only thing that felt right.

Seven
- He didn’t feel secure in the relationship. He wanted to be, god he wanted to be, but the self depreciating thoughts always came back.

- You were so much better than him. So much kinder, so patient. Hell, you were putting up with him and his brother, and even then he couldn’t deal with him at times.

- Sometimes, rarely, he slipped into his shell again, wanting to push you away, push you away so you could live your live and be happy somewhere else. You deserved more than him, you deserved so much better than all of this stress you were constantly engulfed in.

- So, when he found your online dating profile, he almost agreed that this was probably for the best. Granted, he shouldn’t be snooping around anyway, but you were always latched to your phone now. Not in the RFA messenger, not chatting with potential guests (they never made your face light up like he had witnessed). He needed to know who was making you so happy, who was doing what he had failed to do so many times.

- And, of course, it was a funny guy. He scanned the messages, his heart sinking further and further as he read them. He was like 707, not Saeyoung. Silly. Goofy, weirdly sweet.

- Not how he was. Not how he really was.

- He looked up every bit of info about the man without thinking twice, just studying up on him, soaking up every little detail

- And he couldn’t find. One. Damn. Thing. Wrong.

- He was perfect. No history of any mental illness, no complicated background. A normal, funny, guy. Normal job, even had his own place and a car. 

- Normal.

- Something you needed.

- He didn’t even bother to get angry. In fact, he almost offered to let you just take one of his cars and go meet the man, go rid yourself of these bastard twins and go.

- Instead, when it was obvious that he knew, he resorted into numbly going back into his shell, pushing you away so you never thought about coming back.

- It’s what you needed. So why did it hurt so damn much?

V
- In the back of his mind, he knew that this was revenge for betraying Rika.

- Though, everyone would argue that he never betrayed her, or that she deserved it, he couldn’t bring it within himself to agree with them. He loved her. He loved her so much, and in the end he gave up.

- He stopped trying, and let her go.

- He watched as he saw you with another man at a cafe. Laughing, holding hands, leaning in as much as you could without being awkward. He knew how you flirted, and it was obvious you were doing so.

- And when the other man kissed you, he just chuckled to himself.

- Of course. Why would anyone love him? 

- He had too many flaws. Too, too, many. He held things back from people, kept secrets, god knows all of Yoosung’s anger was completely justified. 

- He just… Didn’t think this would happen so quickly. He thought he would get a few more happy moments with you, before things fell through.

- Wanting to avoid you seeing him, he continued down the street, stopping somewhere to throw away the gift he had just bought for you. You probably wouldn’t want to be near anything that reminded you of him, right?

- He didn’t deserve you. He didn’t deserve anything, just hardly his name.

- It takes him a bit to get home. He keeps losing himself in his negative thoughts, just walking and walking until he snaps out of his thoughts and realizes he was supposed to turn a few blocks back. But when he does get home, he just stands and stares at the ceiling for a bit. It takes a lot, so much more willpower than it should, to finally pull out his phone and end things.

- Ending a relationship through texts is so horrible, so cold-hearted, but obviously he must be like that for you to do this, right?

- It hurts, so much, but he knows he deserves it.

Saeran
- You were so sweet, so beautiful. His personal angel, someone who had helped him see how good the world could be.

- Your laugh helped him, your lips brushing against his had him feeling as though nothing could ever harm him again. Nothing.

- Except for you.

- It wasn’t a good habit to spy. He shouldn’t be. Saeyoung did it at times as well, and sometimes they both joined in when you had been gone for much longer than promised- Their worry eating them up to ignore morals for a few moments of relief.

- This time, instead of finding random security footage of you buying groceries, or walking down the street, the found you hand in hand with another man, getting ready to walk into a restaurant.

- Saeyoung tried a flimsy excuse. Maybe it was an old friend? Was Saeran sure she didn’t text him? Maybe she mentioned this guy before? But everything fell short as Saeran stalked the security cameras more, watching as you held the man’s hand on the table, how the two of you shared a kiss that was definitely not friendly.

- He lost it. Anger hit him first.

- How could he have trusted you? Of course you were going to be like all the other women in his life- Abusing him in all different forms, using him just for your benefit. Of course his therapist was lying to him, about how you seemed like a sweet girl, and how you were helping him. Was this really help?

- He threw everything of yours outside. Everything. Saeyoung eventually gave up trying to stop him- Because why should he? He just silently watched, his heart aching for his brother

- The twins locked you out, and Saeran couldn’t help himself from trying to destroy your phone remotely, as much as he could.

- A few days later, no calls or texts from you, he ended up finding a shirt of yours that he missed

- He couldn’t bring himself to toss it. Instead he curled up around it, trying his best not to directly sob into it. 

- You were his angel. Why did you have to hurt him so bad?

Pagan Witch: A Pagan formally means a person who worships more than one deity. Paganism is also normally an umbrella term for any religion other than the Abrahamic religions.

Wiccan: Wicca is a modern Pagan religion. Wiccans worship nature and normally use magic for positive unharmful change, but not all Wiccans do. Wiccans also follow the Wiccan Rede, which simply states that you will not use magic to harm others or yourself.

 Thelemic Witches: The Thelema philosophy is a precursor to Wicca created in the early 1900s, and has similar tenants to Wicca, such as “Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law. Love is the law, love under will.” Modern Thelemics may practice more than one religion and worship other deities than the 3 main Egyptian deities in their texts, Nuit, Hadit and Ra-Hoor-Khuit. Witchcraft is also part of the Thelemic religion.

Satanic Witch: Satanism includes symbolic association with, or admiration for, Satan, whom Satanists see as an inspiring and liberating figure. Satanic witches don’t always worship Satan, but rather follow the beliefs preached in Satanism.

Christian Witch: Christian witches follow the teachings of Christ and worship God and Jesus through witchcraft.

Buddhist Witch: Buddhists who also practice witchcraft. These witches follow Buddhist philosophy, believe in Karma, practice yoga, as well as practice nature based witchcraft.

Regionally Specific Witchery: most were originally tribal based and feature many similarities, such as Paganism and similar craft practices

Europe

Norse: Norse witches worship Norse deities. Witchcraft was very important in ancient Viking culture and a normal part of their everyday life. Warrior shamanism, runes, and sacrifices to the Gods were just some of their important practices. Heathen Witch: Heathenry is Norse/Anglo-Saxon/any Germanic Paganism, also called Asatrú: Ásatrú is a polytheistic faith based on pre-Christian Northern European Pagan beliefs. Emphasis on historical accuracy and the heroic tales as recorded in texts and personal honor, truth and integrity are considered to be some of the highest virtues.

Druid: Druidry means following a spiritual path rooted in the green Earth and hails from the United Kingdom. It means participating in Celtic wisdom teachings, but embracing the contributions of many peoples and times. Druids worship Celtic deities and practice earth based magic.

Hellenic Witch: Witches who are Hellenic or Greek Pagans (Hellenists, Hellenes, Hellenism) are generally polytheists who worship the ancient Greek Olympian gods. Offerings to the Gods are an extremely important element of ritual practice. Hellenismos consider hospitality of great important and place great value on the study and use of classical Greek philosophical texts.

Roman Witch: Roman Pagan witches practice Religio Romana, the pre-Christian religion of Rome. The modern religion reconstructs the ancient faith of Rome and its gods, goddesses and rituals as closely as possible. Every attempt is based on historical accuracy and archaeological evidence. Like their friends the Hellenic Witches focus on the original classical texts, writers and language of their ancestors.

Italian Witch: Strega (Stregheria, La Vecchia Religione, "The Old Religion”), Italian witches practice a form of Witchcraft that encompasses elements of the pre-Christian European magical teachings and ancient Etruscan and Tuscan religions. Many modern Italian Witches today, especially those who still reside in Italy, are Christians who also practice their Old Religion.

Africa

Egyptian Witch: Kemetist witches practice a modern religion based upon the ancient Egyptian family of gods/goddesses and ancient Egyptian ritual practice. While many gods and goddesses are revered or acknowledged, the Kemetic religion is not primarily polytheistic. In many sects of Kemetism, the concept is better described as one god representing many distinct personalities and divinities. Rituals and offerings are often elaborate, and both ancient texts and modern archeological discoveries are very important to modern Egyptian witches.

African Witch: African witchcraft varies region to region of the African continent and can be tribally specific. African witchcraft normally delves in spirit work and shamanism. The most well known type of African witchcraft is Voodoo (Vodou). Voodoo is an ancient West African religion based on spirit work. Voodoo is a religion of spirits. Voodooists believe that the world of humans is shared by the world of the spirits. When a person dies, his spirit passed to the world of the unseen but is still able to see the human world. Spirits, it is believed, in some cases can even impact the world of the living. They also seen as witch doctors in their communities who can heal, work with divination, and give their customers charms and amulets to bring them luck, love, harm to others, and so on.

The Americas

Native American Witch: Each region and tribe of Native Americans have its own unique kind of witchcraft. Each tribe has their own rituals, performed ceremonies, and costumes. They each have their own tools, carvings, and totem poles. In spite of all their differences, Native Americans share a sense of oneness with their land, practice herbology, and hunt, use, and honor animals of Native America. A common magical practice known to have roots in Native American magic is the practice of smudging.

Louisiana Voodoo: A sect of African Voodoo, knowledge of herbs, poisons, the ritual creation of charms and amulets, and the intension to protect oneself or harm others are key elements of Louisiana Voodoo. Voodoo queens have great power in their communities, are ritual leaders, and draw crowds to buy their magical products, such as “gris gris” amulets and spells that will grant the customers desire. There also Voodoo kings, their male equivalent. 

American Hoodoo: A sect of Louisiana Voodoo that is ever evolving. Hoodoo practitioners use gris-gris items, such as amulets and charms, to cure their customers ailments, bring them luck and love, and whatever they desire. Some work closely with the Bible, and have said to see Moses as magical figure. 

Bruja/Brujo Witches: Witches who practice witchcraft, brujeria, who have Hispanic heritage and/or live in Spanish speaking South America.

Brazilian Shamanism: Like other tribal or local shaman, they work with the spirit world, work with divination, and are seen as healers. Shamanism is often hereditary in Brazil and they work with a specific animals spirit to derive power from, such as the jaguar. Brazilian witches also incorporate catholic saints with the beliefs of the Brazilian Indians and the worship of their local indigenous gods.

Kahunas of Hawaii: Like other shamans, they invoke spiritual help, conduct rituals, and have Pagan local gods who are given offerings. They also have various crafts of Kahunas, such as a high priest, dream interpreter, and reader of the skies. To the Kahunas, and many witches today and in the past, the subconscious is your greatest ally or greatest foe for achieving health, wealth, and happiness.

Asia

Japanese Witch: The Pagan Japanese religion of Shinto is shamanistic. Witch is a very positive term in Japan. Japanese witchcraft is commonly separate into two types: those who familiar snakes and those who familiar foxes.

The Mu, also known as magician, medicine man, mystic or poet, have the ability to will people into a trance state and astral project. The Mu provides physical, psychological, and spiritual healing. These shamans emphasize holistic living. There are different types of Mu and they are link to the mother goddess associated with a mountain. Each region has a different mountain association, thus a different goddess associated with that region. They make sacrifices to the gods, worship ancestors, sing songs, and meditate.

Chinese Wuism: Chinese shamanism, also called Wuism, was first recorded in the Shang dynasty. These men and women are seen to meditate with the powers to generate things, worship ancestors, and can communicate with the spirits. Gods of nature are prominent in Wuism.

he was the art

@beggingforfics​ or hannah or bby depending on the time of day gave me this prompt (well this picture) so here is the story of delia and harry. 

i’m posting this to make her feel guilty. just a psa.

Delia happened upon him in the middle of the art shop, her basket heavy from paints that her roommate insisted she pick up because it was perfect for the project he was assigned. She hoped she was reading his handwriting correctly, grabbing the right numbers and the correct brushes, but he had a doctor’s handwriting and all of it merged together into a bunch of random words that made no sense to her.

THE SIGNS AS TYPES OF WITCHES

Aries: Storm/Weather - Magick that is worked by combining one’s energy with the energy of the weather, and most commonly rain. Weather witches will do things like collect rain/snow water, absorb the energy of a lightning storm, “whistle up” or manipulate wind, predict the weather, etc. 

Taurus: Garden - While having a garden and/or working in any type of garden; magick that is mostly (if not all) herbal and botanical-related! Garden witches take pride and find it calming or invigorating to work the earth, harvest that which they have planted, and are closely related to Green type.

Cancer:  Sea - A type of magick derived from materials and abstract ideas involving the ocean and oceanic world. Sea/Ocean magick can be worked using seashells and bones, sea weed, beach sand, driftwood, ocean water, etc. and a sea witch might draw their energy from that of the sea! 

Leo: Animal - Magick that is strongly tied to the animal kingdom, which includes a deep appreciation for all animals, and most often: usage of animal materials in spellwork.

So I was wondering how Credence will turn out after what happened in Fantastic Beasts, and my personal conclusion : Soft!Credence Barebone.


  • Credence who wears lots of knitted jumpers and socks cause he’s been cold for so long he needs the heavy clothes
  • Credence who lets nifflers and kneazles and even occamies sleep in his bed even though they shouldn’t be allowed there and excuses them by saying he was cold and they brought warmth
  • Credence who gets all smiles and soft voice around children and Newt’s creatures and gets lots of respect for that
  • Credence who learns about Obscurus and helps fellow Obscurials to control their powers
  • Credence who can’t bake or brew potions cause it requires too much precision and the risks of messing it up give him anxiety, but who excels in charms and at decorating cakes cause you can re-try taht as many times as you need
  • Credence who learns all sorts of spells, but is best at the most practical ones
  • Credence who falls alseep in front of the fireplace and who gets levitated to his bed
  • Credence who talks through his sleepless nights with Queenie or Newt, or who just goes out and help Jacob at the bakery since he starts working at 4 am
  • Credence who likes to hold hands with his friends and steal their clothes


Just, soft!Credence who is given all the space and freedom and love he needs and who heals at his own pace and who definitely never becomes a villain overcome with anger and betrayal

I just wanted to take a second to thank everyone for following me, whether it was because your finger slipped on the follow icon or if you enjoyed my scenarios :)


“Y/N, it was amazing. Oh my god- remember that guy I went out with for three whole months?”

You laughed at the memory of Minji’s longest relationship, “You mean the guy with the perfect dick? Yeah I remember. You disappeared and resurfaced after two weeks. I mean, that much sex has got to be some kind of record.”

With Jae back in your everyday routine, you didn’t have enough time to hang out with Minji during the week. So the two of you reserved your Sunday for a girls’ day out with some shopping and food.

“This was better than that,” she said, enthusiasm buzzing through her voice as she talked to you about her latest conquest. “He was just- do you know that feeling when, when you see someone from afar and think that he’s one thing, but then you look up close to find just what you’re looking for?”

She expected some sort of understanding from you, but your puzzled look shut her up. “Never mind I’m being crazy.”

“Jung Minji- do you have actual feelings for a guy?” you asked, surprised but excited for your best friend. “Like romantic ones?” She laughed it off and walked away to find a distraction, filing through the closest rack of tops, but you pulled her back. “You have feelings for this guy!”

She looked into your eyes in complete denial, “Do not!”

“You totally do! Well, did you get his number?”

“Oh no, no, no. You never get the number of someone you just slept with,” she said, as if she were explaining a special set of rules for sleeping with strangers, “especially that late at night. He saw all my smudged makeup and my drunken slur and-”

“He left this morning, didn’t he?”

“Yeah.”

With all her crap out of the way, you saw her disappointment. Minji always pushed guys away and never looked to be involved with anyone. You never judged her for her preferences, but you wished she could experience love, too. To see her treated like that the first time she seemed to have feelings for a guy, you hurt alongside her.

“It’s going to be fine. You deserve more than that.” You put an arm around her shoulder, giving it a little squeeze. “Come on. Let’s go get some lunch!”

Hey will how do you roast your own coffee beans at home I'm looking to get into it myself

I learned a lot from Max Temkin, who advised me on my roaster (the Behmor 1600+) and where to buy beans (Sweet Maria’s). Then I did a ton of research in books, and in every forum I could find.

I’m still learning, and I’m not quite satisfied that I could roast anything and give it to anyone, feeling confident that it’s going to be good. The learning curve and the variables for roasting are much more complex than brewing beer or baking bread.

But I’m getting better. I think I’ve figured out a baseline roasting profile that I like (P1 -30 seconds with a pre-heat to about 165) and I’ve been using it on mostly Central American beans. 

It’s a lot of fun, and there’s something intensely satisfying about having a cup of coffee that you roasted yourself.

You huffed as you stood over the mass of wires and cables that covered the makeshift stage you performed on. The smell of fresh brewed coffee and baked pastries tickled your nose. You took a step back and scrutinized your setup that was surrounded by a mass of metal chairs and dining tables. This was the same situation you found yourself in every Thursday at six o’clock in the evening at none other than Harvelle’s coffee shop. You just finished setting up all of your gear, including your speakers, your mic, and your scuffed acoustic Taylor guitar. This was life. This was all you’ve known and loved; strumming your guitar and crooning to the chords you played by heart. No boyfriend anymore, lived away from family, moved to an obscure, decent sized town. Too small to attract many strangers, but too big to really know everyone who lived in the area. It had been about a year since you drove away and found your new home, Asheville, North Carolina.

After one too many times of Howard trying to control his life, eighteen-year-old Tony runs away and opens a coffee shop in New York. It's hard work, but worth it for the people he gets to meet, especially that ROTC guy who's been coming in every week to flirt with him.

The thing about being a genius was that, at least in Tony’s case, it wasn’t limited to one specific thing.  Yes, he’d grown up cultivating his genius in the field of engineering and weapons design, but after ditching that gig at 18, he’d been able to transfer the genius capable of rudimentary AIs to painfully prosaic but actually much more fulfilling areas.  Like baking.  And brewing coffee.  And enough business sense to keep his cramped little shop open.

He’d thought that the best part about telling Howard exactly where to shove his fortune and the future he had planned for his son would be the freedom, and it was at first.  For the first year or so, he woke up every morning to the reminder that everything he did was his own choice.  If he wanted to take one of the industrial coffee machines to his shop out back and blow it up, he could.  If he wanted to eat leftover pasta for breakfast, he could.  If he wanted to operate on a schedule that included going to bed at 10pm and waking up at 4am, no one was going to stop him.

But after that first year, he found his opinion changing.

James Potter had never been good at creating things

He couldn’t brew a potion, or bake, and both of them looked similar to the other when he was done. He hadn’t created many spells, but when he had they usually turned people into posters, and birds into- well he didn’t know because nothing had looked different about them.

But the point was, James was not talented at creating. So when Harry was born, James thought it a miracle. The child was perfect, and secretly, he assumed that his previous failures in creating had occurred to allow for such a perfect one.

Meet Me

Pairing: Bucky x Reader

A/N: I was bored and I decided to write this, enjoy! :) 


You opened the blinds in the small coffee shop located in the heart of New York City.  You allowed the rising sun to light up the small coffee shop you were just beginning to open to the public.  You loved the sound of the jingling bell every time someone opened the door.  You loved the smell of fresh coffee being brewed and freshly baked cookies and pastries in the oven.  

Every morning you went through the same routine seeing people come and go, some old, some new.  

One cold morning, you noticed a man walk in with a baseball hat and several jackets wrapped around his body.  

“Hello, what can I get for you today?” You asked politely.  

“Just a medium coffee please,” he replied quickly reaching into his pocket for money.  

You nodded before charging him the set amount for the coffee.  The man fumbled with the cash and change in his pocket before handing you crumpled up bills and loose change.  You smiled before placing his change into the register and proceeding to make his coffee.  

You noticed the man sit at the corner of the shop by the window overlooking the park full of children and pedestrians.  

You handed the man his coffee before going on with your day.  The mystery man ended up staying in the shop the entire day, his head stuck in a book while slowly sipping his coffee.  

Ever since that day, the man came back everyday, ordering a medium coffee and sitting by the window with a different book every day.  You never talked to him however every time he walked in, you would smile.  He always greeted you with a sweet smile etched on his face and a polite thank you before retreating to his seat.  

Finally, on Christmas Eve, you decided to go talk to the man.  No one was in the shop other than him giving you the opportunity to start up conversation with him. “What brings you out here on Christmas Eve?” you asked as you began to clean off the tables next to him.  

He looked up from the book he was focused on before replying, “I don’t know, I guess I like to see the quiet streets once in a while” he said quietly.  

“I agree, do you mind?” you asked, referring to the chair across from him.  

He shook his head, moving the coffee closer to his end of the table.  You smiled before taking a seat across from him.  

“To kill a Mockingbird?” you asked pointing to his book sitting at the edge of the table.  

He nodded slowly.  

“I loved that book,” you said.  

“Same, it’s really growing on me,” he replied with a smile, “So you finally decided to talk to me.” 

“I guess, I just see you everyday and I wanted to get to know you better,” you replied, fixing your apron in the process.  

“So why are you out here on Christmas Eve?” he asked.  

“Leaves me with something to do,” you replied softly.  

“No family to spend the holidays with?” he asked with a sincere tone. 

You nodded before replying, “but I never really did so it’s nothing new.” 

“Same,” he replied before taking a sip of his coffee.  

“Hey, since we’re both here and it’s Christmas Eve with nothing better to do with our lives, you want to bake some cookies?  I always bake my special pumpkin spice cookies for Christmas morning.  The kids love it,” you said, your face lighting up with excitement.  

The man shrugged before saying, “Why not?” 

“Yay!” you said before getting up and walking towards the kitchen.  

You heard the man laugh behind you as he followed you to the back.  

“Okay so we’ll need all of this stuff,” you told him, giving him the list of ingredients needed.  

“I don’t even know what half of this stuff is,” he said staring at the piece of paper in his hands.  

“You’ll be fine, everything is labeled back there, I’ll heat up the oven and get all of the bowls.” 

Before the man could protest, you walked towards the oven preheating it to the right temperature.  You grabbed the necessary supplies before setting them on the counter.  

“I think this is everything,” he said setting the ingredients down on the counter beside you. 

“Perfect, see I knew you could do it,” you said with a smile before grabbing the proper ingredients.  

“Slowly pour the flour into that bowl,” you instructed him.  

Suddenly, all of the flour in the container fell straight into the bowl causing some to fly out onto both your clothes and face.  You gasped as you felt the flower hit your skin.  

The man tried holding in his laughter however failed as soon as he saw your expression.  You smirked before grabbing an egg and cracking it on his head.  Now it was your turn to start laughing.  

“Oh it’s on,” he said quickly grabbing whatever food item he could find next to him.  

You squealed quickly grabbing whatever ingredients you could find.  At the end there were eggs everywhere, flour and milk all over you and the man’s clothes. The two of you were laughing so hard not realizing how close the both of you were.  

You looked up into the man’s eyes easily getting lost in them.  “I never got your name,” you said.  

“Bucky, my name’s Bucky,” he replied slowly leaning towards you.   

“Y/N,” you replied.  

You suddenly felt his lips on yours, sparks immediately flying.  The two of you molded into each other like your bodies were made for each other.  In the background, you hard the clock hanging the shop strike 12 indicating the both of you that it was Christmas.  

The two of you separated gasping for air, your foreheads leaning on each other. 

“Merry Christmas Bucky,” you said quietly. 

“Merry Christmas Y/N,” he replied before putting his lips back on yours.
