TONIGHT! My last episode of Steven Universe boarded with the wonderful @jeffliujeffliu! Hope you enjoy and thanks for all the support! It’s been a huge honor to be able to board on the show and I hope you look forward to all the great episodes yet to come!
For the episode I made an ube roll from scratch with Christy Cohen, our amazing production coordinator and resident sugar witch. Ours wasn’t quite as good as a real Filipino ube roll (my fault) but we did pretty good for our first time I think!
“Did you hear that Very Good Corporation and Excellent Corporation merged yesterday, Alexandria?” asked Patricia, one of the 12,500 receptionists at Very Good Corporation. “This is some amazing news!”
Alex, a fellow employee of Very Good, looked left across the mag-train aisle at a smiling Patricia, who eagerly nodded her head in enthusiasm. The windows on their flanks flashed bright hues and 5-D swirls, their advertisements choking out any blank space in their peripheral vision. Alex sighed and took a puff of her Medicine.
“Yes, yes. I was one of the first few million to hear it. Got the Speedy Alert after I had just woken up. So did you hear about it?” again questioned Patricia, desperate for an answer.
It didn’t interest Alex one bit, but she played along anyway, not wishing to upset her coworker and get into an even longer conversation. “Yes, I got a Quick Alert about it yesterday too.”
“Oh!” cried out Patty, “You must upgrade to the Speedy Alert! Here I will refer you right now. Ten percent off!”
Patty looked in Alex’s direction and scrunched her forehead, thinking the command into her communicator. Alex winced her eye upon receiving it and immediately filed it off into her personal trash bin, disregarding the fee necessary to do so.
“Thanks, Patty, I will be sure to upgrade.”
“Oh, no, thank you! I get a free muffin at the Food Shoppe for everyone I refer. A chocolate muffin, Very Big size!”
Patty’s excitement was overwhelming. Her head shook and shook in excitement and she kept smiling at Alex. She also, quite nonchalantly, had pulled out a napkin from her knapsack and worked to wipe her chin for, to Alex’s disgust, she had begun uncontrollably salivating at the mere thought of her reward. Alex took another puff of her Medicine and cast her eyes to the window, letting the 5-D take hold of her senses for the remainder of her morning commute.
i smiled as i heard the door chime ring. the usual nerdy boy who usually sported science puns on his clothing walked in. his friend was quick behind him trying to speak quietly but it obviously wasn’t working out for him.
“peter this is amazing, we have to tell everyone” the friend of the brown hair’d boy attempted to whisper but it was loud enough for me to hear. his hands were flailing in the air excitedly while peter just looked annoyed.
“ned shut up!” peter snapped at his friend ned. he looked back at him he sent a glare his way as they both pulled out their books from their bag.
“okay the teacher was making no sense tod-” peters friend began rambling on and on about something but my eyes were focused on him, the way his eyes scanned through the text, the way his smile starts at the far corners of his mouth.
i was starring from the counter pretending to be at the cash register but no one was paying. someone bumped my hip, i looked up to see my co-worker olivia nod her head toward the table. i blushed while grabbing a note pad and a pen.
here’s an invention i’d like to call the muffin bowl! if your muffin is slightly dry then open a hole in the middle and fill it with hot chocolate like you’d do with a bread bowl and soup. it looks slightly disgusting but it tastes so good
this is what happens when you don’t want to study for finals! happy “studying” :’)
For shy anon! I,,,,finished this right before I saw your ask ahh sorry!
Saeran: -he saw the blood on your pants and screamed -if you hadn’t caught onto what he was screaming about, he would have taken you to the hospital….which would have been embarrassing to both parties. -overall, he’s not totally sure what he should do. He seems a little disgusted at first but it’s not about you: it’s because you have to go through this every month?! The hell?! -he lets you cuddle up with him while you scroll through Netflix/Hulu and pick a show you’ve never seen before but with a ton of seasons -you both binge as much as you can before your period’s over, sometimes making a game out of how many episodes you can sneak in -you both,,,,have to get fillings after a few months because of the sweet binges though
Jumin: -when you first started dating, he made you get a period app to link to his phone and made his doctor explain about periods so he could know not only whenever you’re feeling bad, but what it was and how to help you. -He came home from work early to see you lying in the fetal position while using Elizabeth 3rd as a heating pad -and although you’re in pain, he’s excited to be able to take care of you!! -he calls Jaehee and through an awkward conversation Jaehee would rather not speak of ever again, learns that baths and sweets help -he quickly draws you a bath and pours some sweeter wine, rubbing your back and washing your hair as well -if you can’t sleep due to the pain, he reads to you until you do
V: -he hurts when you hurt -immediately pours you some herbal tea and gives you one of his wrap-around heating pads to put on your stomach and back -V has the best dark chocolate mmMMMmm it’s the best for periods -V is totally an organic kind of guy so he knows all of the best remedies for pain that don’t involve any kind of chemical -10/10 the best nurse you could ask for during your period, he never asks you to do anything until you’re 100% better, plus he even cooks for you??? (which is rare bc his cooking is atrocious and always 95% burned But That’s Okay)
Vanderwood: -he’s on boyfriend duty, no questions asked -he will stroll right into the store and pick up a huge pack of pads/tampons and some night pads while not giving a heck nighttime pads will save ur life btw -somehow he knows the best kind of pads/tampons to get and the durability of each kind which is a blessing -checks on you every hour to make sure your pain isn’t too bad and also makes sure you’re not burning yourself with his heating pad -overall super attentive but not in a smothering way -gets you your favorite sweets but makes sure you balance the junk food out with healthy food
Jaehee: -she could have,,,,sworn there were 62 double chocolate muffins, not 59? There were three cookies and two large slices of cake missing, too. -at first she panicked, thinking a customer or employee was stealing from them but when she went upstairs to alert you, she noticed the chocolate stains on your mouth and pants -like that meme “have u been eating the powdered donuts” “no” “then what’s on ur pants” “crack cocaine” -she takes it way easier on you once she learns you’re on your period (mostly because you dealt with her last week) -she dotes on you while making you some food to ensure you’re eating properly and slides you a coffee since caffeine helps -at night she draws a bath for you and then helps moisturize your skin to help you feel better
Rika: -ugh she knows the struggle, she has awful periods too -wraps you in a blanket burrito while she goes and makes you a mug of your favorite tea -she is a hecking FANTASTIC baker, she makes you her favorite apple crisp and u feel like you’re floating on a cloud. The apples are tart, the sugar sweet, the crust perfectly flaky and done… okay i’ll stop -Rika = firm believer in naps so yo while she rubs your stomach juuust light enough to release some of the tension -you binge every single one of Zen’s musicals and some of her other favorites until you pass out on the floor together
Saeyoung Choi: -he doesn’t know what to do -he just kinda,,,,goes to the store and gets every kind of pad and tampon for you plus every medicine the store has -you’ll never run out, I guess? -researches into period hacks and comes up with some pretty ingenious ones that have pretty much changed your life now
Yoosung Kim: -this is his time to shine -he goes and buys you pads/tampons even if you don’t need any just to show them off to his friends who usually hang around at the convenience store - ‘hey yoosung, buddy, wanna hang out?’ -”Well SORRY guys, I have to get these to my GIRLFRIEND. Maybe another time?” -such a nerd lolololol -he can bake the best sweets and cakes for you, honestly your period is so much better since you moved in with him
Requested: Nope, all the requests were too sad to post for his birthday.
Scenario: “What do you want for you birthday, Shawn?”
A/N: Holy Muffins, we’ve reached over 1,000 followers! Thank you fellow Mendes Army dreamers for sticking around! Y’all make the stories happen, the blog going, and my love for Shawn Mendes even stronger. Much love!
“Babe, please.” You plead to your boyfriend as soon as he lies in bed with you. He looks so good with his hair wet and sweatpants “You know that I would do anything for you, but not this.” You turn around staring at his blue eyes, Steve was always such a good boyfriend, unless when it comes to your family then he refuses to have a conversation.
“You always do this, can’t you see how important is this party to me?” You say gently trying to convince him, a couple of weeks ago your sister got engaged and your family was throwing her a party on Sunday to celebrate but Steve was being stubborn trying to make you go alone.
“Sweetheart, you don’t need me. All your family and friends are going to be there. I bet you are going to have a lot more fun without me. You can dance, gossip and drink without me to hold you back.” You roll your eyes at him; sometimes he really acted like a 100-year-old guy.
You looked up from your Chemistry notes, meeting his gaze. He looked genuinely troubled, and his ears were bright red.
“Yeah, Peter?” You said, clicking your pen and turning to face him. He was sitting cross-legged on the carpet in your bedroom, staring at you nervously.
“A-are you free-tomorrow evening?” He asked you, scratching his neck adorably and biting his lip. You felt your heart flutter, but you ignored it. You’d seen how smitten he was with Liz. There was no way that he was asking you what you think he was going to ask.
“Yes,” You said calmly. Shut up, brain.
“So…” He mumbled, “I was free too, and I was thinking that we could go down to Costa, I-I mean as friends, obviously, as friends.”
“Sure,” You said, masking your disappointment at the words ‘as friends’. You wanted more, but if he didn’t, you were okay.
You both continued to quiz each other until finally at dinner he was done and he left.
“So…see you tomorrow…” He said, retreating into the darkness, leaving you staring at him.
You fumbled with the buttons on the back of your top, trying to close them. Your hands just wouldn’t stretch. You were getting late for your ‘meeting’ with Peter, and you hated to be late, no matter what the occasion.
Finally, after a grunt and painful stretching, you managed to close the buttons, dreading to think of the fact that you would have to open them when you came back. But you were so annoyed with yourself for being late that you settled down to ripping the shirt off later. God, that sounded so wrong.
You brisk-walked to Costa, which wasn’t far. You pushed open the door hurriedly, the smell of melting chocolate and roasting coffee beans hitting you. You smiled, your eyes searching for the boy you had a crush on. You saw the familiar figure of Peter Parker waving at you from one of the tables at the far end.
“Sorry, I got late,” You said as you sat down on the chair opposite to his.
“It’s fine, I thought you wouldn’t come,” He said, smiling cheekily as he cocked his head to the side. “So, what shall we have?”
“Oh, I won’t have coffee,” You said airily, “I’ll just have a chocolate chip muffin,”
“Sure,” Peter said, “Why though?”
“I’m not particularly in the mood,”
After you two were done ordering, Peter ending up ordering an iced tea, you chatted. Until Peter proved once again that he was the clumsiest teen in Queens.
“Why did you call me for coffee anyway?” You asked lightly.
Peter gulped, sitting up straight, suddenly flustered. “I-I didn’t mean it romantically- I don’t know why people associate coffee with romance- not with romance, I mean- romance means something which can be felt with all the five senses- love is-”
“Peter,” You said, laughing, though your heart was sinking when he said that the date hadn’t meant to be romantic. “You’re not making any sense!”
“Sorry,” He said, sitting straighter. He took a sip of his iced tea. One of the waitresses bumped into his shoulder, and he jumped, his iced tea flying out of his hands.
Guess what happened next?
Yep. And your shirt was stained badly.
You gasped, getting up roughly. Peter’s eyes widened, and he grabbed your hand, hurriedly paying the bill and dragging me out while apologizing.
“God, Y/N, I’m so sorry-” He said for the hundredth time as you reached your apartment. Nobody was home. You threw your bag onto the couch and hurried into your room. You were just about to head into the bathroom when you realized that you wouldn’t be able to open the buttons.
You walked over to Peter, who was sitting on your bed, heat rising up to yor cheeks. It was like the universe was conspiring against you.
“Uh- P-Peter? Could you- uh- unbutton my- my shirt?” You blubbered, your cheeks burning with embarrassment. His ears turned red, and he coughed.
“Yeah- sure,” He said, “Turn around,”
You obeyed. He stood up, gently undoing the buttons. His fingers brushed over your bare back, sending tingles down your spine. His warm breath hit your neck. He steered you by your shoulders, turning you around.
Your heart was beating wildly as he leaned forward. Your breath hitched as his lips met yours, sending shivers down your body.
You broke away, putting your hand on his mouth. “Didn’t you like Liz?”
“Who’s Liz?” He murmured, his lips on your again, and his tongue begging for entrance. You complied. Your hands arn through his hair, and you bit his lip, eliciting a soft moan from him. You both shuffled backward, your legs hitting the bed. He pushed you onto the bed, pinning you down and pressing kisses on your neck, your jaw and nibbling your ear. His teeth caught a tender peice of flesh on your neck and he sucked on it, causing you to moan. His lips were on yours again, but before either of you could go further, there was a voice from downstairs.
“Honey, I’m home!”
You scrambled off your bed, rushing into your bathroom. Peter sat down on your bed like a perfectly good kid and winked at you as you dissappeared.
“Don’t worry, lover boy, we will finish what we started,” You muttered as you changed your clothes.
Summary: After moving a lot, you found yourself in a small town in the middle of Europe ready for a new start. You see yourself falling in love for the city and developing a crush for the cute stranger that you never had the courage to talk to until you’re forced to. (Modern Au)
Pairing: Steve x Reader
Warnings: Fluffy like so much fluffy. And Steve with a beard because that should be a warning.
Thanks to @drinkfantasy , to beta this for me you rock.

You have a routine, every day you wake at 5:50 a.m. and stays 10 minutes in bed just enjoying the warmth and the comfort of your sheets. Then you drink a hot cup of coffee or tea looking outside your window, you love to see the people passing by and how the city comes to life with the morning.
But by far your favorite part of your morning lately has been the time you spend walking with your dog. You look at the small puppy in the end of your bed “Come here, babe.” You say tapping the bed, she was so adorable and so small. You were so glad that your mom gave you a puppy as congratulations for living alone gift “Do you want to go for a walk, Blueberry?”
The dog barks making you get off of bed “Come on, girl let’s find your leash.” You change your pajamas into a pair of black leggings and a pink sweater and your favorite sneakers. Even though is summer the morning is cold, you put the leash on your dog going outside.
