i mean there's got to be a reason its her best selling

anonymous asked:

expand a bit on that au I'm curious

im very glad at least one person cares

  • ok so retail drug store AU!! im 100% shamelessly basing this off of my own job
  • about 1/3 of the store is cosmetics, skincare, bath & beauty, etc. the rest is pharmacy, OTC, food, and other general drug store stuff
  • have u seen drake’s video for ‘started from the bottom’? thats where i fuckin work

this is really long. im sorry


  • allura owns the store. she’s also the head pharmacist
  • which is always the owner of the store
  • in a permanent state of “my employees are fucking incompetent i should fire them” but never does only reprimands them
  • the cameras in the store show her everything thats happening she has a big screen that show all of the 24 areas. sometimes when shes bored and it’s slow she’ll sit there and watch the employees 
  • she calls lance several times and tells him to stop fucking around bc he’ll just be hanging around the front cash bugging the fuck out of keith and pidge and hunk, if he’s there
  • theres a betting pool w the staff on when she and shiro are finally going to hook up
  • she deals with customer complaints when shiro isn’t around; a lot of customers see her pretty face and think she’ll be lenient on them , but oh boy. ohhh boy are they wrong
  • she’ll fuckin shred em
  • she’s stern but a very kind and understanding boss


  • coran is one of the front store managers (meaning he’s one of the managers of everything that isn’t pharmacy and cosmetics).
  • he’s also the product receiver
  • has to do a lot of cycle counts and damage reports bc customers drop things, especially cosmetic things, so often
  • its expensive
  • permanently stressed
  • jokes around a lot
  • will come check up on employees and see if they’re working or not
  • usually doesn’t do much if they’re not
  • just tells them to get to work but like doesnt actually do anyhing about it
  • one time he walked into the cosmetics department and saw lance giving hunk an impromptu makeover and said “dont do that on store time!” but lance offered to give him one too so coran was like ‘oh yes’ and never actually gave lance shit
  • very smart and suggests a lot of ways to improve customer service, ignores keith whenever he says ‘or we could not do that’
  • VERY protective of the staff, will fight anyone who treats them poorly


  • shiro is the head front store manager, meaning he’s above coran but below allura
  • (fs managers wear blue collared long sleeve shirts and ties. pciture shiro wearing that. thank u for ur time)
  • the store is severely understaffed so shiro is permanently stressdt
  • because he’s the one that deals with hiring and raises and wages and whatnot
  • is literally the Team Dad™ and the employees go to him a lot when they have issues/are being harrassed by a customer
  • since they cant tell customers to fuck off they get shiro to do it instead bc shiro is the manager and can do what he wants
  • (shiro never tells customers to fuck off. not explicitly. he’s too kind for that. hes very good at subtly telling them off though. kindly.)
  • takes naps in allura’s office a lot 
  • is also in charge of what products get brought in
  • wants to go for a yearlong nap when lance and pidge keep suggesting all these weird sex toys and lubes
  • “look at this thing it looks like a BANANA shiro can you bring it in i’m gonna fucking sell this to that cranky ass old dude–” “NO, pidge, we are not bringing in a banana sex toy. jesus christ.”
  • “YOOOO I’D GET A THIRTY PERCENT DISCOUNT ON THIS LUBE ITS STRAWBERRY FLAVOUREDO OOHH” “i dont want to hear about your sex life, lance.”
  • no one knows how tf he got his scar or lost his arm but everyone always asks if he can robot punch the dick customer in the face and shiro always has to firmly tell them that’s rude and also, no, but only because theyd get fined


  • hunk is the best merchandiser (stock person basically, the ones putting products out and whatnot)
  • often climbs the shelves in the receiving room bc although he doesnt look it hes super nimble 
  • the toilet paper is always on the top shelf and customers always want it bc its always on sale so hunk is perpetually climbing the shelves
  • sometimes he gets stuck up there and isnt let down until shiro hears him screaming, sometimes hours later
  • shiro leaves him in charge of signage and sale tickets which is fine bc hunk always bums off half of them to lance (who always whines bc he has enough to do in cosmetics which is a lie because theres nothing happening there ever)
  • deals with a lot of shit in general
  • “are you sure you dont have any more of this in the back?” “well ma’am, you see, this thing here” (handheld device) “tells me we have zero in stock, so, like, yeah. im sure” 
  • has a small crush on one of the regular customers called shay, who will hang around and talk to him until shiro comes around the corner and says “Get back to work”
  • whenever he sees one of his coworkers being bothered by a customer he’ll come up and very cheerfully say “can i help you??” as said coworker makes a break for it
  • a VERY hard worker, always gets compliments from customers and even hugs sometimes from the regulars
  • always brings in cookies or donuts he baked and leaves them in the staff room for everyone to share; they always tell him to quit his job and open a bakery
  • hunk flushes and beams but would never leave this shit hole of a place, he says
  • spends like 70% of the time he’s in the receiving room dancing and singing loudly along with the radio, pidge joins him sometimes
  • so does lance and theyll play impromptu basketball with garbage and empty boxes
  • dabs at lance when he sees him across the store


  • pidge is the cash supervisor meaning theyre the one who deals with counting the safe, covering breaks, and dealing with customers when shiro, allura and coran have gone home
  • since the managers usually dont work night shifts, pidge is in charge almost every night from 2pm to close, at midnight
  • literally dead inside, makes jokes about it a lot
  • “hey pidge can you bring me a roll of toonies when you have the chance?” “sure, keith, i’m not doing anything anyway, only taking care of this entire fucking store on my own and wanting to die” “same” “nice”
  • will enter the staff room and announce “i hate my fucking life” and do a shot of chocolate milk
  • the tills crash a lot, and pidge gets at least 6 calls a day from lance especially because the tills are shit in the cosmetics department
  • “my cash crashed again” “just fucking leave it lance i dont give a shit” “i have customers” “okay ill come reboot it but only because youll cry if i dont” “Thanks pidge love u” (pidge has hung up already)
  • very small but always ready to fight
  • will literally tell a customer to eat a dick if they deserve it
  • one old guy was harrassing keith because he didnt have enough lottery tickets and keith was trying to remain polite (which he sucks at) and pidge came up and said “sir kindly calm down or leave this store immediately and dont come back”
  • covers lance’s breaks, since the department cant be unattended, and will shout across the store when they see lance stopping at front cash on the way back to flirt with keith
  • got called “she” after specifying they want “they” pronouns multitple times, and then refused to serve the customer again


  • is that stereotypical cashier that literally wants to die
  • “hi welcome to quiznak did you find everything you were looking for?” *customer bitches about sale prices and blames keith as though he personally chose the price* “okay”
  • its always dead from 7pm to midnight so he’ll just stand there and read a book, and pidge will be like “u cant do that” and keith will be like “too bad” and pidge is like “tru”
  • has stupid competitions with lance, will often compete with him for Worst Customer Ever Stories
  • lance: “this woman told me i shouldnt work in cosmetics because im a guy!! what kind of bullshit!! i didnt give her free samples” keith, flatly: “a man yelled at me for five minutes solid because we don’t sell duracell batteries and then threw his empty coffee cup at me and walked away”
  • the uniform is a short sleeved t shirt but keith always wears a black shirt underneath it and no one cares enough to stop him
  • he also wears his skinny jeans instead of work slacks but again no one cares
  • this pleases keith because he knows his ass looks great in those jeans, and he knows lance stares at it from across the store
  • gay
  • actually has terrible apathy and poor social etiquette and is bad at reading social cues which hes working on with shiro’s help
  • a customer sadly said “i lost my husband” and keith blankly says “did you find him” and shiro, who’s there for whatever reason, gives him a pained look, until keith says “oh god im so sorry i didnt realise oh god”
  • when its really slow and pidge is on cash he’ll leave to go “straighten up” the aisles but hes actually going to visit lance in the cosmetics department bc arguing with lance is fun
  • literally doesnt care about makeup or skincare but lance does and keith thinks its cute
  • if theres no customers pidge will get on the PA and say GAYYY for the whole store to hear
  • hunk will join in from the receiving


  • okay so im a cosmetician so this is entirely based off of my experience
  • lance is one of the only cosmeticians. there are 4 running the entire department. lance suffers everyday. he might as well be the fucking manager
  • knows so much about skincare that it’s lowkey terrifying. has amazing skin. “Whats your secret???” asks a customer. lance will never reveal. (its glycolic peels and a good moisturiser)
  • also is incredible at eyeliner, gives shiro a run for his money
  • “youre a guy why are you working in cosmetics” “because im beautiful”
  • the cosmetician uniforms are all black, long sleeve blazers and black pants. lance looks really good because he’s tall and slim, and pidge always tells him what a gay look it is
  • “im BI, pidge” “i know but its a gay look because its a GOOD look”
  • its always fucking HOT in the cosmetics department because its far away from the freezers and the lights for the makeup make the entire dpt like a sauna
  • lance will cry about it at any given time. he BEGS allura to change the AC settings but she never does
  • goes to front cash to steal bags a lot because they run out a lot at cosmetics but mostly actually goes to say some kind of pickup line to keith, or to whatever cute girl is waiting in keith’s line (earning himself a savage glare)
  • always has makeup swatches up and down his arms and all over his hands and smudges on his cheeks; somehow still looks flawless, and he knows it
  • shamelessly applies makeup in the middlle of his shift, earning himself calls from allura and shiro telling him to work andstop doing that
  • he doesnt stop
  • when hes bored hell leave the department and go hang out with hunk in the back for like a half hour and claim he was printing signs when asked
  • “i may hate my job and want to die most of the time, but at least i look good” *finger guns* *keith rolling his eyes*
  • a pretty girl or cute boy enters the department looking for a consultation and lance flirts the whole time, partially because hes a flirty dude, and partially because he KNOWS it’ll up his sales. also he likes making people smile.
  • makes faces at keith from across the store when keith is standing at his cash looking like a zombie. keith responds and they have an ugly face contest


  • after close, pidge, hunk, and lance will grab the trolleys and race down the aisles, often crashing into shelves or each other. keith joins sometimes and fucking slaughters them all
  • allura: i should fucking fire you all
Teen wolf imagine - How they act with your first child

Stiles - Stiles would be overjoyed but scared at the responsibility of being a dad. He’d be worried he can’t provide and give you and the baby all he wants to meaning he’d throw everything into his work at the station. He’d be worried he himself wasn’t enough and you’d have to convince him otherwise.  

You sat up at 11 waiting for stiles to finally get home. He should’ve finished at 7 but you knew he was pushing for overtime. Finally at 11:30 the front door slammed. You smiled and made you way into the kitchen. “Y/n” stiles jumped seeing you “why are you awake, you should be resting the baby…”. “Is fine” you silenced him “its my husband I’m worried about”. Stiles look exhausted. Pale, skinny and with bags under his eyes you frowned as you looked at his face. Stiles sighed “I’m fine y/n I’m doing this for a good reason”. “Stiles theres no good reason for you to over work yourself like this”. Stiles shook his head “i need to provide for you especially now”. “Were fine, we’ve always been fine stiles!” You said your voice rising “youve got a promotion and thats great! When i go back to work we will have enough money”. “But you shouldnt have to!” Stiles said standing up “you shouldn’t have to go back to work early and leave the baby with your dad, you shouldn’t have to be living in a flat rather than a house or have to sell your car, the baby deserves nice toys and books and you deserved a proper honey moon and fancy wedding not just what we can afford! You deserve so much more than what i can give you!” Stiles finished tears in his eyes “I’m sorry y/n I’m just not good enough to give you the life you need so if i work hard enough i can get an increased salary ad we can maybe have the life you deserve”. “What the hell..” You started angrily “makes you think my life isn’t already complete with you already in it?”. Stiles looked at you speechless “well…”. “No stiles with you, my life is already perfect! My husband is a sweet intelligent endearing man with the kindest personality and the hottest body thanks to his sports skills, your literally a hero saving how many lifes from wendigos and kanimas, you saved lydia, malia, erica, cora, scott, derek…the list goes on and on! Not to mention you’ve saved me”. “I didnt save you” stiles whispered looking down. “You did” you smiled taking his hand “you did from the second we met and i don’t want a life with fancy cars or a big house all i want is you! And the babies not going to care either, your going to be the best dad ever and your more than enough for both of us”. Stiles smiled up at you “thanks y/n”. “No problem” you grinned “now let me cook you something?”. Stiles shook his head when his stomach growled “you are the best wife ever”. “I know” you smirked kissing him “and don’t you forget it”.

Scott - Scott would be like an excited puppy literally counting the minutes until your due date. He’d read all the books and attend every parent class determined to be the best dad. 

“Hey y/n” scott called happily as you entered your bedroom. “What?” You asked waddling over to the bathroom. “In my book I’ve just found out that babies can swim when they’re newborn, who would’ve thought it!”. “Wow Scott” you said sarcastically putting your night cream on “lets totally try that!”. “Really?” Scott asked excited and you rolled your eyes “no not really?”. Scott sighed “fine i guess it is dangerous also guess what!”. “What?” You asked putting the cream away". “Did you know babies can get cradle cap? Its like dandruff but really bad so we have to be really careful with her head and make sure we used special shampoo for her, i looked it up on the Internet and they said the bests ones this organic type so i looked around and found a deal where we can get 80 bottles for $60! $60 thats it! Amazing right!? So i bought us 240 bottles just to be on the safe side, they’re coming tomorrow…”. “What?” You laughed sitting down next to him in bed “240 bottles of baby shampoo!”. “Well yeah” he smiled putting blankets over you “its the best kind and the more were prepared then the better it will be” he carried on putting more blankets over you until you grabbed his hand. “Scott honey I’m boiling please no more blankets!”. Scott immediately stopped “ow your warm? The book said that might happen, want me to open a window? Or get you a fan or i can get you your comfy shorts instead of those bottom….”. “Scott I’m fine” you laughed “now please come back to bed, put the book down and can we talk about something else?”. “Sorry I’m so excited i just want to be prepared, anyway how was your day?”. You grinned as Scott still securely placed an arm around you, the thought of your unborn child never leaving his mind and the smile it caused not leaving his face. 

Isaac - Isaac wouldn’t know what to expect but he’d be excited to be a good dad to your child unlike his father. He’d get emotional over the thought of your child and cant help a tear when he holds them for the first time.  

You smiled as Scott passed you your daughter back “shes beautiful”. “I know, i just cant wait for Isaac to see her. You gone into labour while you were at scotts and had given birth so quickly there wasnt time to take you to the hospital or call isaac. “Stiles said they werent far..”. As if on cue the door swung open and isaac ran into the room. “Y/n” he called “y/n”. He sensed you and ran into the living room. He frozen when he saw the baby. “Oh my gosh is it….is it okay?”. “Yep” you smiled “our daughters fine”. “Its a girl” Isaac grinned his whole face lighting up “we have a daughter?”. You nodded “would you like to hold her”. Isaac nodded and at down on the sofa carefully cupping his arms like Melissa had shown him. The moment you place her in his arms Isaac sucked in breath. He stared at her trying to take in her every feature so he could remember it forever. “Isaac?” You asked when you realised he wasn’t breathing. “Shes so beautiful” he gasped tears flooding his cheeks as he held her closer “ive just met her and i love her y/n” he grinned looking at you “i love you both so much”. You smiled pulling him towards you “i love you two too isaac”.

Derek - Derek would be extremely protective, seeing everyone as a threat and holding your and the babies safety as his personal responsibility. 

“Hey y/n” i brought over the baby things lydia was telling you about” stiles smiled showing you the bag of baby toys. “Aw these are great thanks stiles im sure the baby will love them!” You smiled. “Hey its no problem…anyway how are you all? Is derek any calmer?”. “I wish!” You laughed. Derek was protective of you anyway so when you fell pregnant he got a thousand times worse. He constantly wanted you in his sight or better close to him. He had the instinct to protect you and saw everything as a threat, his wolf senses heightened. He wouldn’t let Scott near you towards the end of the pregnancy seeing him as the biggest threat and he even had to tell Isaac to step away from you a few times. “How is scott? I miss him”. “Scotts fine” stiles smiled “he misses you too but he understands Derek cant help but be protective”. You heard the front door slam and in seconds Derek was in your room his Claws out. “Ow its you stiles” he relaxed withdrawing his claws “i could smell someone else and thought…”. “Im fine Derek” you pouted “like any of our friends would try to hurt me, theyre like family”. “Well given my family you can see why id be cautious then” derek smiled placing an arm on your waist. Suddenly his wrist tightenned its grip “y/n why is isaacs smell all over you?” He asked angrily. You frowned confused “i dont know…i saw him earlier maybe it was then”. “You saw isaac earlier?” Derek asked tensing. “Yeah…is that a problem?”. “Yes y/n, i told isaac that you needed to rest today and that he should leave you alone”. You thought to the day you’d had with isaac of baking and watching movies, friendly fun you hadn’t had in months due to Derek. “Isaac can come and see me whenever he want” you told derek “and you cant tell him not to! I dont care whos alpha you are, your not the boss of my life”. “Y/n you don’t understand, anything can be a threat, i have to protect you!”. “You cant always derek!” You shouted “you have to let me have some freedom! Im not going to die from seeing your friends or going to the shops with lydia! And when the babies here its the exact same you have yo give it space you cant watch over it every second!”. “I can try” derek growled. “No derek” you sighed “why are you so worried? I get your instincts but is that it?”. “No…its you y/n”. “Me?” You asked looking to stiles but he shrugged. “I cant loose you y/n” Derek mumbled staring at the floor “you and this baby are the best things to ever happen to me, ever! Im so grateful for the two of you, your on my mind all the time! All i want to do is protect you and hold you and i dont know why because i know your a badass hunter who could kill pale stiles or alpha scott in a heartbeat, but what if something happens?”. “Nothing will happen” you reassured him grabbing his hand. He growled looking down “you dont know that”? “And you dont know something will der, its life we cant hide from it, we will be fine you know the others will always help”. Stiles nodded “its true we would”. Derek sighed “okay i’ll loosen up a bit”. You smiled hugging him “thankyou…does that mean i can see our friends again”. Derek laughed “yes ill control myself stiles why dont you invite them all over?” Derek asked. “Ow i already have theyre all on there wag” he smirked. You laughed at Dereks expression and death stare “it’ll be fine” you smiled hugging him “all three of us will be fine”. “I know” he replied kissing your head “i know”.
