How would be clexa Christmas in the mystic coffee universe? ❤
oh gosh, okay here, take this gross mess of holiday mystic au clexa feels
Clarke is generally unused to celebrating the holiday since she definitely doesn’t (can’t) go home, and her friends are usually busy or they go to distant relatives houses and Clarke hasn’t wanted to impose by inviting herself along. So usually she’d just crash on her couch and watch whatever crappy Christmas movie was on tv and get drunk on corner-store eggnog and eat mini candy canes until her stomach is sick. After the first two years of doing it, it was basically a tradition and it hadn’t really occurred to her just yet that this year might be a bit different.
So it’s mid-December when she offhandedly tells Lexa with a shrug that she usually doesn’t put much thought into the holiday, and the other girl stops them dead in the middle of the sidewalk aghast because, “Clarke, it’s Christmas.” And when this doesn’t garner the response she wants, she becomes determined to make sure Clarke gets caught up in the spirit of it. They end up running to a bunch of different stores, picking up lights and decorations right then and there and Clarke is mostly humoring her because she’s so amused by how excited Lexa is and okay maybe it’s a little contagious and I guess some of these decorations aren’t so bad. But then a day later Lexa buzzes Clarke’s apartment and she’s standing on the sidewalk looking half-frozen, breath coming out in puffs, next to a christmas tree. "Don’t just stand there, help me carry it in.” And when Clarke finally gets over her shock, they somehow manage to get it inside her apartment before any of the neighbors catch Clarke using magic after the two of them give up halfway up the stairs.
And then Lexa is running around the room hanging up paper snowflakes and going on about sugar cookies and this new peppermint drink they’ve got on the menu in the coffee shop that doesn’t actually taste like pure sugar. And Clarke is just shuffling from foot to foot and helping when she can but it all seems kind of foreign to her. Because she still doesn’t completely get it, she doesn’t get the whole point, the whole fuss. But later, it’s dark out and Lexa asks “ready?” and flips the switch on the wall, and the small tree that she dragged all the way to Clarke’s apartment from god knows where, is softly set aglow…and Clarke gets it.
And Lexa is watching her with a soft, knowing grin and after a moment Clarke just shakes her head and pulls her close and kisses her, because it’s the easiest way to convey this indescribable fullness in her chest. The lights on the tree blink and twinkle in response and the branches get fuller and Lexa is laughing softly and saying something about how Clarke is mixing up christmas tree traditions with mistletoe ones.
And on the day, even though the forecast calls for clear skies, Clarke’s window alone has soft flurries on the other side. It’s late and she’s wearing a ridiculous sweater and they’re dozing together on the couch, neither wanting to move anywhere. Half-finished mugs of still-steaming apple cider sit on the table next to the snowflake shaped cookies that Lexa stole from work. The Christmas tree is lit up softly (it’s grown a bit since they first brought it in) and now sits with ornaments that like to appear and disappear or rearrange themselves on their own and it might be a little strange to anyone else but to them it’s perfect.
Clarke feels warm and loved and thinks that maybe this new tradition isn’t so bad at all.
Ah, tis the season for candy canes those red and white peppermint delights. That’s right peppermint. Don’t even think about buying those grape, apple or butterscotch monstrosities and passing them off on unsuspecting holiday revelers.
How you eat your candy cane says a lot about you:
There are the biters. They bite off chunks of the candy cane. These people are impatient and impulsive and are the types who try to peek under the gift wrapping to see what they got. They are not to be trusted.
Then you have the folks who start at the hook end. These people are nonconformist and have a tendency toward exhibitionism. They are the ones who can be counted on to undress at office holiday parties and photocopy various body parts..
Finally you have the prison shank people. They lick the cane until it forms a deadly pointed weapon. They always think “this is the perfect murder weapon, commit the crime and then eat the evidence”. If you know one of these people you had best sleep with one eye open.

Sephiroth was a known candy fiend among his boyfriends. When Christmas comes around Zack ends up buying a lot of candy canes. He is insistent that candy canes must be on the Christmas tree. The problem is is that Sephiroth eats a lot of those candy canes.
Zack is annoyed that the tree is bare of the candy canes every two days and he has to get more. He learned his lesson and secretly stocks up on them; hiding them in places where Sephiroth will never find them. This is done to ensure a constant supply of candy canes. Also he doesn’t want a repeat of the first year, when the stores eventually ran out of candy canes. The tree must have candy canes!
Angeal always reminds Sephiroth that all the sugar in those candy canes will give him a stomach ache, even though after one full box Sephiroth had no negative side effects. Sephiroth has pointed out his boyfriend’s hypocrisy when he noticed Angeal eating five cherry candy canes in a row. Angeal did not respond.
Genesis is annoyed because when he finally has a hankering for a candy cane there are none. One time he asked Sephiroth if there were any left and he got a muffled ‘yes’. He spent a few minutes searching the entire tree. Annoyed, he turned to Sephiroth who just stared back at him then gave him a smile around the candy cane in his mouth. Genesis promptly took the remaining candy cane from Sephiroth’s mouth himself.
Cloud isn’t big in the candy cane department. He will have one or two the entire Christmas season. He does enjoy the flavorful kisses from his boyfriends though; especially the cherry ones favored by Angeal.
A few days ago I murdered my tongue by eating a cinnamon candy-cane (it was a mistake but boy was it a tasty one). So I haven’t been able to taste very well for the past couple days and now, right as my tongue heals, I burn my mouth with chicken soup…

Y/N arched her neck and let out a laugh after hearing another one of Eric’s funny jokes about working back in lab. At the top of the marble staircase that let to the computers, Eric and Y/N shook hands before heading back to work. The headquarters were crowded and Y/N had to squeeze herself in, tucking her stuff in her chest with her hands while escorting herself to her assigned workplace.
Merry Christmas and Happy Birthday Haruka!! (((o(*ﾟ▽ﾟ*)o))) (included Konoha and Kuroha here too I love the three of them so much aaah and somehow I can’t help imagining Kuroha eating all the candy canes xD)
