Coffee Shop Love [Part 2]

Words: 2882

Genre: Romance, Fluff, Angst 

Characters: Park Jihoon x Reader (Y/N = Your Name) 

Plot: This might sound like your typical Korean drama scenario (cue coffee prince) where a barista finds himself falling heads over heels for a customer and vice versa, or at least that is what Y/N thought. Who knew that she might actually have met her first love in a place as simple as a quiet coffee shop off the streets of Hongdae?

A/N: And this is the second part of the fully written one shot from me as a gift of appreciation for all my readers, followers or people who have reblogged and liked my content. :’) Just wanted to say that I am super grateful for all the positive feedback so far ( @commedestae and @jihoonslattee ) and it really did make my day after a tiring day at school! Hence, here I am again with the second part and I hope that you guys would enjoy it as much as the first one! ^^ Once again, happy reading! 


Warning: Mentions of sexual harassment 

From that day onwards, it turned out that we did see each other more often, apart from going to the cafe. When he was off work, we would find ourselves back in the cafe anyway, but this time, instead of being the one serving me, he became my study buddy. Despite the occasional coos from his co-workers, he would brush them off and shake his head. If I did have a problem, he would help me straight away and would explain the solution thoroughly and easily.

Apart from studying, there were days when we would casually hang out after school. He would pick me up and we would have lunch together, either at a traditional fast food restaurant or even a hearty meal of street food. During the weekends, we would decide to take a walk at the Hangang River, ordering fried chicken when we finally stopped to take a rest and sipping on icy cold cider to beat the heat of the up and coming summer.

From the time spent together, I started seeing him past his looks and realised that it was only a bonus that the Almighty had probably blessed him with. True enough, he was a very sweet and loving boy, putting his friends and family first before himself. He was not much of a talker, but his company was enough to make one feel comfort and ease, and one could easily talk to him about one’s problems. He would not interrupt and would simply stare at you and listen to what you would have to say before giving his input.

He was also caring, making sure that I was always okay whenever we went out. If I made a statement saying that I was hungry or thirsty to no one in particular, he would come back with food and drinks in hand, to my surprise. Also, he would tend to pick up my favourite foods when I was simply craving for them and occasionally treated me to almost everything. Of course, there were many days (after much protests) and we would go dutch, but we always shared with one another anyway, whether it was food, thoughts or simply casual conversation about everything and anything under the sun.

The months passed and despite the stresses of our CSATs, we had managed to pull through, encouraging one another to keep pressing on. We met each other more often during that period because his boss had given the final year high school students a month’s break to study and consolidate all the material that they possibly needed to sit for the “most important examination of our lives”. Jihoon was a little less confident than usual, but we became each other’s support system and hoped for the best. When I could not sleep, he would pull off all-nighters with me, or come to my place with energy bars and drinks (not like my parents minded since they love him so much).

Hence, there came the day when my friend had convinced me to confess to him. It was a gamble that I was taking, but she said that I was already “too far gone to be saved” and it was up to me now to decide what I wanted to do with my feelings.

“Go big or go home.” That was what she always told me.

Unfortunately, I got a call and ran late due to the fact that my part time job employer had arranged for an interview and there I was, not exactly showing up in the most proper attire for the interview but I had no choice. I mean, who would not want to be the photography intern for Cosmopolitan Korea? It was crazy if I wanted to give it up because this was not an opportunity to be missed and hence, I threw all caution to the wind and showed up in smart casual attire. The interviewers were not surprised, and said that I was probably the most simply dressed one for the day.

By the time I was done with my interview, changed and ready to go with my plans to confess, it was already sunset and the area was bound to bounce back to life at night time. It did not help that it was a weekend and it was nearing Winter soon, explaining the reason why most people found themselves frequenting bars more often due to the cold. I had arrived in the district and tried my best to put on a brave front, even though there was numerous catcalling from some clearly drunken men down the bars that I had walked past.

To my shock and horror, there was a sign outside Angelinus Coffee and it read,

“We are having a staff meeting today and hence, Angelinus Coffee House is closed earlier for the day. Do come back again tomorrow and we apologise for any inconvenience caused. If you have any enquiries, please do not hesitate to contact 82-445-354-92! If you happen to be looking for anyone (why would you?), he will be done by 10pm. Thank you very much!


Angelinus Coffee House team”

It was an adorable note and I had a feeling that it had to be written by one of the baristas, just by the tone of it. It was already 9pm, so it won’t hurt to wait another hour right?

Hence, I took refuge outside the door and watched the world go by. I saw a couple of cars come and go, with some of them blasting music so loud that one could clearly hear the bass and the beat of the music. There was no way that I would have walked back to the line of bars, even if it was more lively and less secluded.

Little did I know that I was actually being followed from the row of bars and I was soon confronted by 3 young men dressed in suits, looking like they were barely 25 and reeking of cigarette smoke and alcohol; it was revolting to say the least.

“Isn’t this the girl who played so terribly hard to get just now?” One man spoke (or more like slurred) and stepped even closer, looking down at me with clearly hazed eyes and a drunken mind that could not think straight, “What about you accompany us back tonight? We could have soooo much fun and you would never forget a night like this.”

“Thank you for the kind offer,” I replied sarcastically, “but I am waiting for a friend and he will be out soon. Leave me alone please.”

I tried to steel myself but I could feel the chills down my spine and my hands were starting to become clammy and uncomfortable as they started to sweat. At this point, I did not know whether my pupils were actually shaking because of the fear, but I definitely tried to hold my ground, standing firm. This was not a Korean drama, and I definitely did not believe there would be a knight in shining armour coming anytime soon.

Little did I expect a push to my head and a relatively light slap and I could tell that the man was livid with anger. His friends looked like they could not give two hoots about the situation and only laughed, before one of them said, “I suggest you come with us if you actually do want to see the sunrise tomorrow.”

And I soon found myself being gripped by the wrist and dragged away from the cafe. I tried, I really did, to break free from his grasp but he was way too strong for me.

“LET GO!” I shouted, but he only gripped my hand harder and I will definitely not be surprised if I found my wrist bruised tomorrow with the shape of a palm and 5 fingers.

“Hey!” A familiar voice shouted from across the road and I heard quick footsteps behind me, almost like the person was running, “What do you think you are doing?”

The men turned around, and they refused to let go of me still, but I turned around only to be faced with an angered and stern Jihoon. It was dark, but the streetlights did shine a little on his face, and he was found to be staring daggers into the souls of the men with his fists and jaw clenched tightly.

“Oh look who we have here. It’s a kid and a teenager too! Haven’t you learnt how to respect your elders, you young and insolent boy? She’s ours now and she’s gonna bring us so much entertainment tonight. Pity you can’t join because you would have to go home before momma scolds you.”

The rest of the guys were ready to go after Jihoon, but he clearly had enough backup to take down the 3 men when 10 other boys walked out curiously (looking confused and lost for some), but stared down at the men with the same intensity that Jihoon had initially, or perhaps some were even scarier and more intimidating after when they grasped the situation; one example being Seongwoo, known to be a charmer with the older ladies, but is not someone to be taken advantage of.

“Listen punk, in case you are wayyy too drunk to think,” He spoke with authority in his voice while grabbing the man’s collar, “We are definitely not appreciative of the fact that your lackey peed in front of our cafe. What did your parents teach you and how dare you waste your parents’ money? Also, how could you even have the audacity to touch a friend’s girl?”

I was a little surprised by the last question, but if I was smart, I would not complain and protest, standing quiet but ready to run when the situation allowed for it.

The men were clearly shaken by now as I felt the grip on my wrist loosen but he only gave a smug smile, before he attempted to use his leg and possibly attack him while his hands are not free. However, Seongwoo had quick reflexes and avoided the attack, before taking his wrist and pinning his arm on the man’s back. The man screamed in pain while his lackeys ran away and by then, he had already let go of me due to the pain that Seongwoo had just inflicted.

“I could break your arm if I wanted to, but I love this place a little too much to end up in jail for something that I did not do. Hence, I suggest you run along instead of being so stubborn and wanting to take us all down. I can warn you that there is absolutely no way in hell that you will be able to do that. If I see you again, God knows what I would do but I guess we would not want to find out, would we?”

And he ended off by pushing the man away with the latter running along, cursing under his breath as he turned his head occasionally to look at the team of baristas.

“Are you okay?? Did he hurt you? Did he do anything… you know… illegal?? I’m so sorry Y/N. You should have told me that you were coming and I would have come to see you straight away!” Jihoon asked with concern laced in his voice, dropping the facade of a fierce and angered teenager to the usual gentleness.

I chuckled sheepishly, still a little shaken from the entire incident before I found myself pulled into a hug. Jihoon’s grip was firm but secure, as his arms wrapped around my entire being with his head resting on my shoulder. I did not know what to do with my hands initially, but I wrapped my arms around him too, reciprocating the hug.

“I can’t believe that something dangerous almost happened to you, just like Kwonhyeop hyung. I’m glad you are still alive and well and you are not hurt. I cannot bear to lose you and what would I do if I did not come out of the meeting in time to notice a damsel in distress? What if—”

“Hey hey,” I responded, while patting his back, “I’m here now right? Stop worrying. I’m fine. I truly am, except with the fact that I might end up with a bruise on my wrist tomorrow from the jerk’s grip but I am okay, Jihoon. Thank you for coming out in time?”

“You don’t get it Y/N.” Jihoon said curtly, before letting me go and making eye contact with me this time around. His stare was a little intense but one knew that it was of no harmful intent. I looked at him in confusion, and raised my eyebrows, tilting my head to wonder why he would be so worked up all of a sudden.

“I like you Y/N. I really do. I’ve noticed you ever since you walked into the cafe for the first time and I made it a point to come every day at one point so that I could see you again and perhaps get the chance to know you a little better. You were a nice, gentle and sweet girl, and was equivalent to a ray of sunshine. You listened to me, tolerated my playful antics and accepted me for who I am, despite my difficult past. I did not plan to tell you this, but I was the one responsible for all the drinks you woke up to when you fell asleep at the cafe, except that I asked my co-workers to bring them to you so that you would not think I was a hopeless romantic or anything—”

With that, I mustered the courage to give him a quick kiss on the lips and he was stunned with his eyes open wide, while I was tempted to run as fast as I could from the embarrassment that came shortly after and I was grateful for the fact that it was in dimly lit alley so I could hide it well, but he pulled me back and kissed me again; longer this time. His lips were soft, a little chapped, but it was as if we fitted like a puzzle piece, like we were made for each other.

“WOAH. I didn’t come here to the back to see this. Congratulations kid, I’m so proud of you!” A voice was heard, and Jihoon broke away quickly, glaring at Jaehwan who pulled off a sheepish grin.

“Please continue and pretend that I’m not here. I don’t wanna be the cause of the anti-climax.”

“Hyung, you ARE the anti-climax.”

“Oh? Oops, didn’t mean to but I’m so glad this happened Y/N, he would not shut up talking about you. If he put all that description and sentiments in a book, it would be thicker than the entire Harry Potter series combined.”

Jihoon said nothing, but only stared at Jaehwan with the best death glare that he could muster, but Jaehwan only laughed a maniac-like laugh and walked back, saying, “Geez, calm down lover boy. I’m just confirming that the feelings are mutual.”

I laughed heartily at Jaehwan’s comment but proceeded to hug Jihoon tightly again and he did the same.

“I wanted to confess to you actually, and hence I brought these for you.” I said, and showed him the contents of the brown paper bag that I had been carrying for the longest time, consisting of my favourite soft baked chocolate chip cookies and my love letter that I had painstakingly written the night before.

“Awh Y/N, you shouldn’t have, but I do have something for you too. I was supposed to ask you out tomorrow actually, but the florist called and said that she would be closed tomorrow so I had no choice but to pick my bouquet and teddy bear up today. I hope they have not died yet.”

“They are still well and alive!! And by the way, it’s really pretty.” Another voice was heard, before laughter ensued and Jihoon slapped his forehead before looking back at his co-workers.

“Seriously guys, why do you have to ruin EVERYTHING for me?”

They only shrugged their shoulders, before getting excited all over again, as if they had never seen a couple get together before. In fact, they probably felt like they were watching a drama in real time and I only said, “Guys, we do feel a little bit uncomfortable so do you mind giving us a little time? We will join you, don’t worry!”

“See Jihoonie, all it needed was a little kindness. See you Y/N!”

“How did you even do that?” Jihoon asked and I shrugged my shoulders with a mischievous smile and all he did was laugh, ruffling my hair again for the nth time since I had met him. With that, he put his arm around me and walked me into the cafe, opening the door and trying his best to be a “gentleman”.

“Come on, get inside and I’ll prepare something warm to drink. Perhaps we can consider this our very first official date? I’ll prepare some hot chocolate or whatever you’d like for the both of us and we can go to the park to catch the stars, don’t you think?”

you know that soulmate au where you have your true love on one wrist and your worst enemy on the other, but you dont know which one is which?

That would be such chaos for the characters in tlc.
Kai with Cinder on one wrist, and Levana on the other, so that he’s never quite sure who’s manipulating him and who’s actually in love with him.
Winter with Jacin on one wrist and Aimery Park on the other, so she thinks that her and Aimery are meant to be because Jacin doesn’t love her back.
idk about the other characters but those two sure would be interesting

Kind of a weird request, but I thought of this listening to Kiss From A Rose haha. What if the Chocobros S/O's had to "marry" Ardyn (think Yuna with Seymour from FFX kind of situation?) in order to save the guys and when they see their S/O with Ardyn at a ball and he kisses their S/O, (which they don't want obviously because who kisses trash XD) the guys flip their shit and take back what's theirs? Lol I can never request anything normal.. haha thank you so much, love your writing <3

OMG The Drama that I am going to get out of this will fuel me for years! I love these type of situations!!! When I first read it, let me tell you I was all about it!


You stared in the mirror, putting on your lipstick, shaking hands attempting to get a good line as you tried holding back tears.

Even though it had been weeks at this point, you found yourself crying every time you looked in the mirror. Dreams of your actual love fluttering through your mind, as each time you closed your eyes, you hoped that when you opened them it would all be a horrid dream.

“Are you ready, My Queen.”

You shuttered, that voice that didn’t belong to him, but instead this man who stole you from him. Placing your lipstick down, as you took a deep breath, placing your pocket mirror and lipstick into your purse as you linked your arms with your, ‘Fiance’, who escorted you to this ball of the union of Insomnia and Neilfhelm to start the era of peace.

“Introducing Chancellor Ardyn, and his fiancee…”

You managed to hold back your tears as you were introduced as his fiancee, you hoped that you could do this.

LGBTQ+ in Kpop

I’ve wanted to write this for awhile now, I also know that pride month has just ended so I’m a little late but heyho. This topic is one that I‘ve always wanted to see more people talking about, I’m not going to be talking about the whole of Korea, that’s for another time, I’ll just be focussing on the Kpop scene. I’ll get onto it now.

What has always bugged me about fan culture, especially in the Kpop scene, is the whole ‘shipping but nohomo because if they were really gay that’s gross’ ordeal. Because if you’re willing to opening ship two members, read and write smutty fanfics then you have to be open to the possibility that, those members might actually be queer. Now, it’s no surprise that despite the discrimination and censorship on LGBTQ+ culture, there are actually queer people in Korea, I know, shocker!!

Given that in most places 1 in 10 people are queer, it’s just fact, and given the numerous Kgroups there are; 170+. The number of members varies from around 5-10+ so in total, that’s a lot of Kidols. To go back, 1 in 10 people are queer, that includes that Kpop scene. I’m 100% sure that not all of those idols are straight, like, come on. That means that 1 in 10 idols are queer, (10 may even be a smaller number. I looked but I couldn’t find a definite number/percentage of the gay population in Korea, sorry.)

Considering that the average number of members each group has is about 6-7, it means that statistically, there is at least 1 queer person in each group, this isn’t 100% accurate as some groups might have more or none, hell, a 5 membered group might be primarily made up of queer people; looking at you KNK and A.C.E.

I know that the topic of homosexuality is still taboo in Korea but it is getting better. But what I hate is how Kdramas use homosexuality as a joke, I understand the appeal of a cross dressing drama but when the male lead brushes his confusion in his sexuality off as a joke, it puts a bad image of the community. There are many dramas that do this that I disagree with, however the drama ‘Coffee Prince’, I feel does it right;

The male lead feels himself becoming attracted to what he believes is a man, he questions his sexuality, shuts himself in and consults a doctor who gives him medication as a ‘cure’. As much as I hated that scene, I feel that it shows Korea’s view on homosexuality perfectly, that they believe it to be a disease that can be cured with drugs. The male lead then stops using this ‘cure’ and accepts who his is, a queer man. When the male lead find out that his love is actually a girl, it’s not the typical ‘Oh thank god because for a second there, I really thought I was gay, ha!’, he’s hurt and confused. I just love that the male lead was able to accept his queerness. (Now I have mad respect for Gong Yoo for playing that role)

Something I also want to touch upon is Kidols naivety to what their fans get up to. Granted, many Kidols might not know but I’m pretty sure a lot of them know what makes their fans happy. That’s the whole point of fanservise, sorry to shit over your ships, but Kidols know that skinship between members and other Kidols drives their perverted fans wild and they act on it. Now I’m not saying that your OTP’s really hate each other, they most likely don’t, what I’m saying is that they know if  they lean that little bit closer, or grope someone’s butt, it will make their fans happy.

I feel like this plays into the fetishizing of homosexuality though and I hate it. because these Kidols are using homosexuality as a way to make their fans happy, they are completely ignoring that being queer is a real and tough thing. I also know that if they do openly support the LGBTQ+ community, or even come out, they will be slandered for it and in the case of coming out, they will lose their job. So I understand why they don’t speak up, but they should. they are in a position to change peoples opinions, these groups have millions of followers who can differentiate the members by their cough, so I’m pretty sure if fans see their bias’ supporting the LGBTQ+ community, it might spark something in them to change.

Summary: The whole point of this post was to show people that, yes, there is a real, 100% possibility that your bias is queer. and that if they’re not, they might be an ally. I also wrote this to tell fans that you cant ship a m/m or w/w OTP without being an ally to the LGBTQ+ community, it’s just unfair and quite frankly, hypocritical. Thank you, if there is anything I’ve missed or gotten wrong, please tell me.

Korean Drama Recommendations/Fangirling:

So! A friend of mine on FB asked me late last night for Korean drama recommendations. She’s never watched kdramas before, so without intending to I just vomited up brief feels, synopses, and titles for her from which to choose. These titles were only the ones that immediately came to mind off the top of my head. Seeing as how I assume some of you adorable follower-humans might enjoy kdramas too, I thought I’d share. Most likely you diehards (pun not intended) out there have already seen these, but here’s some dramas to throw in your face anyway! Since it’s my thing, I’m going to go by genre; so all will have romance as either a main plot line or as a subplot. Brace yourself for the d'awws!


If you’re in the mood for a serious, beautiful, powerhouse of a drama with adult themes (ie adultery but not really…long story), dreams and money, sacrificing your true self for security to forsake happiness, and of COURSE sex and pianos, then you need to watch Secret Love Affair. It is hot and intense and has an open ended interpretation for a finale that will leave you stunned and happy.

I mean, damn, guys…come on just LOOK at this sexiness!

Plus it’s just a damn good drama all around. So watch it.


If you’re looking for something that walks the line between comedy and paranormal, you NEED to see The Master’s Sun. Its heroine is an hilariously adorable girl who can see ghosts, and the hero is a skeptic who, when the female lead touches, makes poltergeists disappear. It’s probably one of the best dramas that incorporates creepy horror with perfect comedy!


If you’re looking for something a bit different, you HAVE to watch Arang and the Magistrate. Same concept as The Master’s Sun, except the female lead is dead and a ghost, the setting is ancient Korea, and there’s gods, goddesses, action, magic, and evil political dudes. Plus the male lead is hilariously apathetic, and the female lead is a badass who kicks ass as a dead girl! It’s funny and dark and heartfelt and will leave you with all of the heart eyes! Plus it has the cutest ending that ever cuted itself.


If you’re looking for something strictly comedy and a bit silly, with moments of seriousness and more cute than you could shake a stick at, you need King of High School. Take an 18 year old high school guy and make him pose as his older brother as a prestigious CEO in a company that a dowdy, 30 year old over-looked heroine works at and you talk about some of the CUTEST comedy you’ve ever witnessed in your freakin’ life!


If you’re looking for something hella melodramatic and intense, go with Secret Love. Heroine is engaged to a guy who gets involved in a hit-and-run that kills a girl, and the heroine takes the fall for her fiance. Turns out the victim was the pregnant girlfriend of the male lead. The drama explores the idea of falling in love with someone, even as you hate them. Suffice to say, IT IS INTENSE, and a bit nuts of a drama, but it will leaving you feeling all of your emotions and then some.


If you want some time travel in your drama diet, go with Queen In Hyun’s Man. Hero is an ancient Korean scholar who finds himself traveling to the future, where he meets the female lead, an aspiring actress who lands the role of the Queen from our hero’s time period. Comedy, cuteness, angst, and adorableness ensues. And smexy kisses. OH MY GOD THE SMEXY KISSES!


Keeping in the same vain as the historical theme, Sungkyunkwan Scandal is adorable and perfect! Set in ancient Korea, in order to protect her family our female lead disguises herself as a boy to get into a university of sorts that only permits men. Cue “male lead finds himself attracted to a boy despite him not being gay” theme and much hilarious ensues. Ignoring the gay panic is a must, but if you can it’s so entertaining and will leave you so damn amused!


And, last but not least, keeping with the gay-panic theme, Coffee Prince. Coffee Prince is probably one of the best kdramas ever, and it’s basically the same premise as Sungkyunkwan Scandal; female lead lands a job in an all-male working environment to support her family. The only real difference is that in Coffee Prince, our heroine opens and closes the drama as a very tom boyish, masculine girl. She’s never subscribed to gender roles, so it makes her character far more interesting. There’s angst and cute and smexy kisses and great characters and everything you could ever want in a drama!

Imagine; Thranduil x Human!Reader

Dedication: @justcallmecinammon Hope you like it!! x

“Bring me the female, she was hestitant, perhaps she can be convinced to talk” The King said almost demanding towards his son, tired of the nonsense the Dwarven King had fed him earlier.

Legolas turned on his heal with two guards in his stead, Thranduil barely even turning his head to watch them leave.

~Meanwhile in the dungeons~

“BLASTED KING IS NOTHING MORE THAN A PRIDEFUL LIER!” Thorin roared through his cell. The other Dwarves groaned quietly to themselves, they respected Thorin as their one true king above all others but they knew his hatred towards the elves was somewhat overbearing.

“(Y/N), are you alright?” Balin called from a couple cells over, noticing your worried expression.

You nodded quietly, even though you were human you were quite small and petite, being locked into a cold and dark cell wasn’t really how you pictured meeting the Elves of Murkwood.

The King… was exquisite, in every way of the word, he only had to gaze upon you to make you squirm with nervousness. You were sure this had happened at some point, despite you actively trying to avoid his eyes, he had seemed fixed upon you during the encounter with the Dwarves.

You didn’t express hatred towards Thranduil as Thorin did, you respected both of them as Kings of their own Kin, you didn’t particularly take to the way they fought amongst one another. You stood quietly not saying a word as both kings shared their harsh words, the deal Thranduil had offered Thorin didn’t seem to bad in your opinion, just wanting to have his craftsman ship returned from within Erebor, nothing more.

The sound of armour clunking together made the Dwarves stand in their cells, they watched in defence as the Prince, Legolas passed their cells one by one.

Your eyes widened as the Kings son stopped in front of your cell.

“(Y/N) your presence has been requested by the King” he said calmly, seeing the worried expression on your face. The guards began to unlock the door as Legolas stepped inside, lightly grabbing for your shoulder as you stepped backwards. He pulled you forward with not much effort as the two guards took an arm each, pulling you from your cell.

The Dwarves went mental.

They cursed, spit, threatened and banged loudly on the iron bars in the cells. Thorin looked horrified as he had to stand and watch me by escorted from the dungeons.

“(Y/N)!” He called with angst.

“I’ll be ok, Thorin Oakenshield, do not fret” You said soothingly, meeting his anxious expression. Legolas then turned my body away from the cells as we kept walking down the hallway.

“I’m rather relieved their was not much protest from you” Legolas spoke quietly.

Avoiding his eye contact you spoke “There has already been enough drama this day, Prince Legolas, protesting now would only make a fool of me”

We turned into the throne room and Thranduil still appeared sprawled comfortably on his throne, not moving to acknowledge our entrance.

“Leave us” he demanded, the guard bowed and Legolas gave you a quick apologetic glance before he too departed the room, the huge Throne room doors shut behind them.

The silence was deafening.

You stood still, not daring to look at the King. You felt your heart pace quicken at the sound of his sudden movement from the Throne. You glance up slowly, he is now standing with his eyes fixed upon you, he slowly begins to descend the steps to stand in front of you.

“Thorin Oakenshield, you owe him a dept?” The King questioned, lifting your chin with a single finger to meet his eyes. “It is rude to not look at a King when he is directly speaking with you Lady (Y/N)” he mused.

You gulped, quite obviously, the Kings finger leaving your chin as he placed his hands behind his back looking down at you.

“A dept? No, King Thranduil, a favour… of such” you spoke honestly. “My apologies, you make me uncomfortable”

The Kings lips pursed into a slight smirk at your words, he took a step to the side to ease your comfort. “What is this favour that confides someone so fair to be in the company of several repulsive Dwarves?” He didn’t turn his head but waited patiently for my answer.

“Repulsive to you, Thranduil, not I” You suddenly snapped, unconsciously, instantly regretting it as the King’s glare flew back in your direction.

“Perhaps you suit them” he said simply.

“If being repulsive means being able to stand up for your friends, then so be it, I am repulsive” You retorted, wittily.

Thranduil kept his eyes on me, searching for something, he tilted his head as his eyes widened. “You believe as well as I do, the fate that awaits Oakensheild if he is allowed back into that Mountain, I see it”

You sigh, feeling automatic guilt flood through you, “He is determined, Thorin has nothing to loose…” you say as you look up to the King. “…which will make him dangerous” You finished in almost a whisper.

“You fear for your worth, before the end of this” Thranduil said softly, turning his body towards mine, he stepped forward and took your hand in his. His long fingers interlocking with yours gently as his thumb caressed the soft skin on the top of your hand.

You felt your heart skip a beat as your chest pounded.

“I am loyal, even in my own doubts I never fault from my obligations to a friend”

“Lady (Y/N), you deserve more than the company of dwarves…” He huffed, a small smile appearing on his face as he examined your hand.

“Perhaps… maybe one day” You said giggling slightly, shrugging, unsure of whether to pull my hand back or not.

“What of the halfling?” The king spoke, slowly letting go of my hand and letting it fall to my side.

“Bilbo is one of my longest and closest friends!” You exclaimed suddenly. Thranduil chucked.

“I see, it was not my intention to sound offensive, I hear you are also following the instructions of Mithrandir”

“Gandalf is a wise wizard, I trust his judgement, as also one of my closest friends” you spoke assuringly.

The King stepped away, completely turning from me, as he spoke “(Y/N) I have seen how you look at my halls, my Kingdom, and in turn I have seen your loyalty…” he began. “If you ever wished to seek the company of someone who would not take for granted the gratitude you so willingly give these Dwarves, you are welcome to return in your own time”

“Are you offering me a place in your kingdom?” you spoke a little shocked.

“Yes (Y/N), after your favour is for filled, our kingdom could always use someone like you” he said reassuringly. You went a little quiet, perhaps the king needed another servant, as you were not elf kind you figured that wouldn’t put you in a very high mind set amongst the kingdom of elves. “I would also, like to see you again, under better circumstances” Thranduil turned his head back to mine, his crystal blue eyes poring into my own with a gentle smile.

If you had been made of ice, you would have melted. You couldn’t help my feel slightly flustered at the Kings words as you felt your cheeks heat up, covering them with your hands in embarrassment.

The King chuckled, moving your hands from your face as he smiles down at you.

“My lord! The Dwarves! They are escaping!” A guard rushed through the halls making the announcement to his king. Without another word, Thranduil dropped your hands and stormed out of the Throne room towards the dungeons.

“(Y/N!) This way, let’s go!” I heard a familiar voice call, turning to see Bilbo with a bunch of keys. I couldn’t help but laugh at the site, how cleaver indeed. The other Dwarves behind him, Thorin seemed to half a particular smug grin on his face, walking out to me to take my hand.

“Having fun, are we?” He stated with a smirk. I felt my cheeks go another crimson red, as he pulled me along behind the rest of the company, I looked back towards the throne room as I felt my heart sink.

~After the BOTFA where everyone has survived~

You stood with the Dwarves, celebrating their victory of their home Erebor. Fili and Kili bounded around excitedly as Thorin let out a deep sigh of accomplishment whilst the rest of the company applauded and cheered.

You looked back towards the city, to were the elves had retreated, a huge elk walked along the streets and you wondered where their King had gone.


You jumped out of your skin, turning to see Thorin smile at you, the rest of the company had gathered around to see what was being said. “Yes, King Thorin?” You said bowing in a playful manner.

“Do you fancy the Elf King?” He said suddenly, taking you completely off guard, your face going bright red. “You haven’t been the same since we left the Murkwood forest”

“Well I…um” you found yourself speechless, but also producing this stupidly big grin, as Thorin chuckled.

“Well I don’t know about you, but that smile betrays you Lass” Dwalin spoke confidently. The rest of the company laughed as You giggled and covered your face, the company went silent as you still covered my face, then everything was quiet.

You opened your hands and found Thranduil standing inches from your face, Letting out a short squeal, hearing the Dwarves cackle with laughter behind you. “Hello Thranduil” You said slowly, very embarrassed.

His stern expression turned into one of comfort as he smirked proudly. You raised a brow confused by his sudden look of playfulness. “Hello again, Lady (Y/N), I couldn’t help but observe your smile as Thorin asked if you fancied me”

You turned around to give a dagger like glare to Thorin, who just winked.

“I thought you both didn’t get along!” You exclaimed, unable to help the smile creeping against your lips.

“It’s very rude to not answer a Kings direct question, Lady (Y/N)” Thranduil smirked, stepping so close you could feel his breath against your lips. “Av-‘osto” (Don’t be afraid) he spoke as a whisper.

Your breath quickened, being in such close proximity, you felt his strong arms close around your back holding you to him. He searched your eyes with his own.

“Tye intrigue me, Thranduil” you said back in a whisper.

His eyes glint excitedly, as he laughs softly, tightening his hold on you as one of his hands moves you caress your face.

Feeling his lips brush over yours you take in a sharp breath, feeling flustered as you know the Dwarves are watching. “Thranduil, th~!” You’re cut off as Thranduil chuckling, dips his head and crushed his lips on yours, holding you tightly in a protective embrace. You giggle into the kiss as you throw your hands around his neck as he holds your lower back.

The Dwarves cheered as did the elves now come to be with their King, Gandalf’s laughter could be heard in the crowd as could the sound of the small clapping hands of a hobbit.
