Word Count: 981

Summary: Marinette has always wanted to be a Princess, just like every little girl her age, but starts to doubt that her wish will ever come true when a classmate tells her that she doesn’t even look like one.

A/N: I blame this little comic here by @new-life-means-new-chances and the fact that I’ve had friends that have experienced being told they don’t look like a “Disney Princess” while growing up. Princesses come in any form and anyone can be one if they want to be.

::::

“Well, I’ll see you around Princess.”

It was a bright and sunny day in Paris with all the civilians getting ready to start the day on a good note. The classrooms at Petite Académie Coccinelle were filled with children’s laughter as they all went to go play with all the toys their classrooms provided.

It was obvious to anyone within the vicinity of the girl that she had been stood up. It’s no high class—entire paycheck’s worth—, fancy restaurant, with exquisite lobster and expensive steak; but, at the same time, no run down fast food joint. Comfortable booths and polished tables, perfect lanterns and a light atmosphere—more like a family restaurant of sorts.

The girl—dressed in a cute, short sleeved red dress with a black sash around the waist and a matching black jacket, and little black flats—sat in a booth alone, stirring the straw to her pink lemonade around, the melted ice clinking against the crystal. Condensation dripped down the side of the medium sized glass, making a circled puddle of water on the tabletop. Sighing, the girl checked the time on her phone, only to place it back down after seeing her date was now two hours late. She honestly couldn’t see why she hadn’t left after the first hour; for some reason, she felt like staying…just in case.

The surrounding tables, full of either couples or families, watched in sympathy as the girl with the curled black pigtails sat alone, no smile on her face. Her waitress came around every twenty minutes, refilling her lemonade and suggesting the check, but every time she refused, saying she’ll just wait a little longer. Even if there’s no point.

“Marinette, hun, we’re closing in an hour,” Alya, her best friend and waitress, said with eyes full of pity. “Are you sure you don’t want the check?”

Marinette sighed, and checked her phone. “No, I know he’s not coming, but I don’t want to go home just yet,” Home, another place alone in the dark.

Alya sighed, shaking her head and walked away. She had tried telling Marinette the guy wasn’t good enough for her, that she would only get hurt. She didn’t want to admit she was right, because it meant Marinette’s sadness.

Marinette met the guy while visiting the Louvre again for the hundredth time living in Paris. He was sweet, offering to buy her lunch at the food market just down the road, after reciting interesting facts about each piece of artwork they passed in the monumental museum. They met up at the Eiffel Tower the next day, seeing as how the weekend had not ended yet, and he eventually asked her out for a date the following Friday—which was tonight, and he never showed up.

The sound of porcelain colliding with the wooden table brought Marinette’s attention to her right, where a small plate and a mug had been placed beside her lemonade. It appeared to be a brownie and a cup of hot chocolate. Marinette glanced up at the person responsible, assuming it was either Alya, trying to be a friend, or her date finally showing up. However, he was neither. A waiter; of muscular build and tan skin, blonde hair and holy moly—those were some green eyes.

“You look like you could use it,” he smiled, lips curving perfectly to melt Marinette’s heart.

“T-thank you,” Marinette blushed, twiddling her now nervous hands. “But I’m okay—,”

“It’s on me,” he insisted, pushing the brownie closer to her. “I hate seeing a sad expression on such a beautiful face,”

Marinette smiled and let out a small laugh. “Thank you,”

The waiter, Adrien (after reading the name tag pinned to his shirt), returned the smile, nodded, and left to tend to his other remaining tables.

Marinette unraveled the napkin containing her silverware, and dipped the fork into the brownie. The chocolate melted in her mouth, it was delicious. Definitely the perfect dessert to end such a pathetic night.

~~~

The second time someone stood her up, she wore a pastel pink poodle skirt with a white button up and a light green cardigan, adorned with white heels. Her black hair fell free from her everyday pigtails, curled in a small up-do, with pink barrettes. A new design from Marinette herself, fresh from the dress form.

She was scheduled to meet a guy for lunch from the university she attended, a fellow student from the graphic design class. He caught her one day walking about campus, and asked about her fashion designs. He had an assignment to create original characters and place them in an outrageous environment. His only issue, he couldn’t design outfits for the life of him. Once the two got talking, she agreed to commission him for a lunch date. Usually she left the date-asking for the other person, but this time she felt flirty and confident, must’ve been that new outfit she designed and was dying to try out. Low and behold, here she is, in the new outfit, alone. Again.

A mug and a plate, both filled with chocolate, nudged itself into her peripheral vision; Marinette glanced sideways to see Adrien trying to sneak the two onto her table while being jokingly discreet. Once he saw he had been caught, he jumped up, folding the tray behind his back and smirking.

“Ah, looks like the princess has caught her knight sneaking himself into her room late at night, whatever shall he do?” Adrien hummed his laughter.

“Leave the check with her and quit buying his princess chocolate,” Marinette laughed, but dug into the treat anyways.

“Ah, but you look much happier,” Adrien said, rolling on his heels. “I couldn’t disgrace my princess by allowing her to be so distraught.”

Marinette smiled, feeling instantly ten times better. “I’m used to it,”

“You shouldn’t,” Adrien responded in a low voice, but he had begun walking away, he couldn’t be sure if she heard him.

Fortunately for him, she had.

~~~

Her third date also failed to show, but Marinette couldn’t find it within her to care. She felt drawn to this place, something about it made any bad day turn into a better one. No, she didn’t care her dates stood her up, someone else always made it better.

“You could always say ‘no’,” her routine chocolate meal arrived, only this time, whip cream, cinnamon, and chocolate chips had been added to her hot cocoa. She glanced up at Adrien, questioningly. “Alya said you like it this way,”

“I do,” Marinette smiled, bringing the mug closer. The warm scent infiltrating her nose. “What’s this about saying 'no’?”

“Your dates, the people that ask you out,” Adrien said, slightly leaning on the table. “You can always tell them no, that would be better than saying yes and being left behind, right?”

Marinette scooped a small portion of whipped cream into her mouth, chewing the chip as well. “Maybe I like saying yes, because I know my night will end up happy anyways,” her eyes met his.

Adrien seemed to be pondering her words as he watched her. She dressed simple this time, a white patterned sweater and ripped jean shorts, with brown ankle boots. She left her hair down, curling all around her shoulders in a midnight wave. He didn’t understand, who in their right mind would ditch a date with his beautiful princess?

~~~

He felt angry. There she was, sitting by herself—again—in the same booth she picked out every time she came here with a supposed “date”. She looked adorable, gorgeous, beautiful. He couldn’t pick one.

He made up his mind, he was going to give her the date she deserved. His shift ended in five minutes, and he thankfully brought a change of clothes with him. Changing, he snuck into the kitchen without Marinette spotting him, and made his routine meal for her, only doubled. Carrying the tray of goods, he walked out onto the floor in casual, civilian clothing. Blue jeans, a white tank top, and a short sleeved black button up, leaving the buttons undone. He set the tray on the table, watching in amusement as she jumped, and startled, watched as he presented their meal on the table, before taking a seat across from her. He folded his arms on the table and smiled at her still shocked expression.

“W-what is this?” she asked, placing her phone down and cupping her mug.

“I hate watching you sit here alone without a date, so tonight, I’m yours,” he said, feeling bold.

She blushed, lifting the cup to her mouth, she mumbled, “I didn’t have a date,”

Adrien blinked. “Excuse me?”

Marinette sipped her drink and set the cup down. “Tonight I actually didn’t have a date. I just felt like coming here,” she hesitated, “I just like seeing you,”

Adrien stared, then erupted in laughter. “I never caught your name,”

“It’s Marinette,” she smiled. Something about her intrigued him, he couldn’t stay away.

“Adrien,” he replied, but he guessed she already knew that. He does work here after all. “So, after this you want to take a stroll with me around Paris?”

“A stroll sounds nice,” she agreed.

He was her first date in a long, long time.

The day started out as any other. 4:30a.m. and the alarm clock goes off. The blaring red light of the clock was shining over his face, shielding the profile of his wife.

He grumbles.

Smacking his hand down on the clock, he turns off the alarm and slithers out of his bed, making sure not to wake his wife. Gently he opens bathroom door, wincing at the slight creak it makes, and then closes it to shower.

Twenty minutes go by before he reemerges, hairs slightly wet, clean shaven, and face brighter than before. He puts on his clothes and finishes drying his hair before leaning down to kiss his wife goodbye.

“Hfmguddy” She mumbles, still asleep.

“You too, sweetheart. Tell the kids I love them.”

“Iil” She said.

He swipes her hair out of her face before leaving the room for the day, knowing he wouldn’t return until later that evening.

He makes his way down the hallway of their upstairs, passing their youngest’s room. It wasn’t a surprise to him that she wasn’t there, half the time she wasn’t. Instead he continued past the hallway bathroom to their eldest’s.

The two of them were snuggled up next to each other, but still seemed to be as far away from each other as possible in that one bed. He smirked at the sight of them, feeling it summed up their relationship perfectly, how the two of them could love each other so much yet never show it. (At least the eldest didn’t show it.) He bent down and kissed them both goodbye, making sure not to wake either one.

Before he left his house for the day, he grabbed his robe, draping it over his shoulders.

“Nanadaime Hokage” is what the back read.

Your Barista for the Day:
1. Super awesome and fun <3
2. Single ready to mingle (*>◡ó*)  
3. Makes the best coffee in the morning ;)

Recommended: Giving him your number

You stared at the tacky sign posted up in front of the store. How in the world could someone ever write something that weird? And why in the world would anyone fall for something like—

“Ne, ___, let’s go here!” Your friend grinned with twinkling eyes after she noticed the signboard. Never mind. You reluctantly followed her in and she instantly bounded over to the counter. Your friend was peppy and always so happy and you wondered how you were always with her sometimes. She instantly started flirting with the admittedly cute barista.

He had messy black hair with soft blue eyes. Wow, that was one hell of a combination. Funnily enough, he first greeted your friend with the goofiest of looks before putting on the charm and man, his charm game was strong. He gave her his most seductive look and the sexiest of smirks. You might’ve felt your heart beat loudly with his changes. Nope, don’t do it. Don’t fall for him.

Your friend already seemed interested in him enough anyway. His name was Takao apparently and he was the main barista at that specific café. When his eyes moved to you, you saw a twinkle of excitement and you frowned. “And what can I get you both today?”

“How much?”

The tall man smiled as he said the price, an outrageous amount for some, but Manon expected the number, prepared for it. “I assure you, my lady, this is of my finest brood. The best I have bred in all my years.”

The Blackbeak merely raised her eyebrows, watching what was being offered with a critical eye. “You must understand why I want only the best,” she explained as she continued the thorough examination.

The man bowed. “She will be ready to breed after about a year.”

Manon went over the price again, making sure this was what she was looking for. “May I?”

The seller stepped back as Manon crouched, expertly hiding her twitch when the puppy went right to her. It was the largest of the brood, of the strongest and purest line of herding dogs. A deep white and gray in color, with a pink nose and a tail that did not sit still.

The man chuckled. “She likes you.” The witch picked up the dog, checked its paws and ears, stomach and tail. All the while the puppy was happily panting, going so far as to lay on its back for a belly rub. After another look over, Manon nodded to herself.

“I will take her.” As the money was exchanged, Manon spoke again. “Does she have a name?”

“Not officially, we usually leave that to the owners, but my little boy called her Snowfire.”

“I’m pregnant”

They were words that he knew existed apart from each other. He used ‘I’m’ practically every hour. And pregnant was something that was tossed around him, but he would rarely say it.

But for his wife to be standing in front of him, saying those two words to him were something he would have never imagined even in his loneliest days.

But sure enough, she said them.

And sure enough, he started to cry.

His tears were joyous as he hugged her. Embracing her tiny frame, which he knew would start growing very soon, he kept whispering words of thanks and some questions. Well, more than some, actually he whispered a lot of questions. But at the end of the day he couldn’t keep his hands away from her tummy.

CS Fic: Ghost Ship (1/1)

Pairing: Captain Swan

Rating: K

Word Count: ~1800

Summary: Emma calls Killian down to the docks to help her figure out what is lurking in the fog.

Links: AO3/FF.net


“Killian, how fast can you make it down to the docks?” Emma asked without so much as a “hello” when he answered his phone.

She had worked the overnight shift at the Sheriff’s station and was due home shortly. Killian had spent a restless night until he gave up on sleep completely. He never slept well without Emma to anchor him to the here and now, and before she called, he lay in bed watching a thick fog roll in from the ocean outside his window.

Suspecting the weather had something to do with Emma’s call from the waterfront, Killian asked, “Is something the matter, love?”

“I don’t know…just…well, you’ll see when you get here, and then maybe you can tell me?”

“Aye, I’ll be there straight away.”

“Thanks.”

He pressed the “end” button and placed the phone on the side table. He’d rarely heard Emma sound so conflicted when it came to her job, and he wondered what strange thing was defying explanation now. This town was many things, but boring was not one of them. Cleaning up and dressing quickly, Killian hurried out the door and over the few blocks to the waterfront.

The dampness from the fog clung to him, beading up on his hook. Killian gave a fleeting thought to all the times he’d been at sea mired in a heavy mist such as this. An exemplary sailor could maneuver through it in an emergency, albeit reluctantly, but reason dictated the safer course was ceasing activity altogether and waiting for the woolen clouds to lift. Sound carried in strange and unsettling ways—some noises echoing in all directions—causing inexperienced crews to lose their bearings in confusion. In especially long instances of dense fog, with frayed nerves increasing among the men, more than one new sailor would take a shot into the gray, sure he’d seen or heard an enemy ship off the port bow. Without fail the result would generally be extra duties for the waste of ammunition or a flogging for a second offense.

He could see a small crowd gathering on the adjacent beach, some pointing toward the water and others shaking their heads. He spotted Emma, finally, leaning against the railing of the boardwalk near a local fish market and jogged over to her.

“Swan?” he huffed as he approached.

She turned at the sound of his voice and gave him a thin-lipped smile that was not the heartwarming greeting he’d been hoping for. She looked…bewildered and tense.

Killian shook his head and frowned. “What is it, love? You look troubled.”

“Yeah, you could say that,” she answered as she turned again towards the bay. She nodded toward the open sea, where the fog was shifting and trying to break apart in some areas. “I got a few calls this morning from some fishermen and dockhands who said they saw a ship out there.”

He shrugged, still puzzled. “What of it? I’m sure lots of ships come in and out of the harbor.”

Emma turned her head and looked him squarely in the eyes. “Yeah, but none of them are your ship,” she said, her concern finally breaking through her own confusion.

Title: Wyvern

Abraxos opened his eyes and the first thing he did was stretch, his wings opening up while he yawned widely. For a moment, the wyvern lay his head back down, enjoying how the fresh hay felt under his head. But then he was shaking himself, getting up and walking toward the water well in the middle of the aerie.

He greeted a few of the other wyverns with head bobs and soft snarls, banging heads with one of the bulls and giving the sky blue female that slept on the stable next to him a soft purr. The only wyvern at the well stepped back as soon as he was spotted and Abraxos grunted his thanks. As alpha, Abraxos’ needs came first. No wyvern challenged him, though it was still a relief to have the aerie relatively empty, as most of the pack were out with their riders.

When he finished drinking, Abraxos flapped his wings, preparing them for the possible flight ahead, showing off how they shimmered in the morning light to the other wyverns. Feeling pride inundate him.

The smallest of the wyverns in the aerie turned his head to the doors at the back, and if he could smile, it would be the widest to ever exist. With a jump and shake, Abraxos bounded toward the back part of the wide aerie, his tail swishing as he inhaled.

Manon. Manon.

This is hopefully the last of them! Some quality fics in this list, and I’d love to find more. If I have time this wekeend, I’ll try to combine all three parts into one.

This is the cutest AU of single-father James meeting next-door-neighbor-and-Harry’s-teacher Lily. Tiny Harry playing matchmaker is the most precious thing.

Let’s Set the World on Fire

“ An AU where Lily and James live to see their son off to Hogwarts. Seven September 1sts in the lives of Lily, James and Harry.” I really like this version of the “Jily lives AU”, since it focuses on one day for each year of Harry’s Hogwarts time. Lovely!

friends, trolls, jily stans

One of my favorite modern AUs. James and Lily are Youtubers who might just be secretly dating. I adore Sirius and Remus in here, and James and Lily are SO perfect.
