Jon doesn’t know exactly when he got addicted to coffee, but now he can be found in the same coffeeshop every afternoon after his classes get out, studying and whiling away the hours until he can call his younger sister Arya.
Dany has just transferred to a new college and doesn’t know anyone yet-but she finds work in the on campus coffeeshop and uses it as an excuse to meet new people. The most intriguing by far is the boy who always grabs the corner booth and orders the same thing every day, without fail-a caramel macchiato.
Jon doesn’t understand why the new barista keeps going out of her way to be friendly to him, or why she always doodles dragons on the side of his cup when there aren’t many people in line-but she’s kind of cute and he doesn’t really mind that much. Why hasn’t he seen her around before?
“One caramel macchiato for Jon Stark.”
He turns the cup in spite of himself, curious to see what she managed to draw today. It varies from day to day-sometimes it’s just a faint outline of a dragon, other times there will be two or three crouched around the sides of the lid. Once, on a particularly slow afternoon, she managed to draw a pretty convincing Smaug from the Hobbit movies. He doesn’t know why she only does dragons; he’s never gotten to ask her.
Dany waves at him as she goes back behind the counter and pulls out her book-it’s a particularly slow day, even though classes got out a couple of hours ago.
He closes his own textbook and pulls out a spare sheet of scratch paper. He’s nowhere near as good as she is but he manages to scribble out the barest sketch of a wolf-his family symbol, from the days long, long ago when they were still lords and ladies (nobility of the sword, his father would say). At the bottom he writes in small printing ‘why only dragons?’
He drops it on the counter as he leaves. Dany doesn’t pick it up right away; she just waves as he lets the door swing closed behind him, but out of the corner of his eye he sees her pick up the sheet of paper and smiles as she reads it.
*Yup, 99 (+) more are on their way! This one wasn’t actually one of the originals-I wanted to make one but I didn’t have my Book of AUs so I just made a really easy one.
I will be taking recommendations so long as the universes are different (for example I’m not looking for twenty different kinds of neighbor AUs)
okay look. i originally didn’t want to draw this. i mean i read the tweet and i thought it was funny but then i thought “nah, can’t draw everything they do”. But then Dan elaborated in the livestream and then i just… i had to draw this sorry not sorry
