If you're still taking headcanon requests, OTAYURI COFFEESHOP AU? Please murder me with cuteness.
Stoic barrista Otabek who who can never bring himself to say a word to Yuri, but does the cutestlatteart on Yuri’s drinks just to watch him smile at it.
The first time Otabek draws a cat for Yuri, Yuri makes the cutest noise, and immediately whips out his phone to snap a photo of his coffee, and Otabek basically falls a little in love right there and then.
No, but like seriously, Otabek spends so much time learning how to make cute latte art for Yuri, it’s low-key embarrassing. Leo totally laughs at him when he goes online to order marshmallow cats for Yuri. He pays a shit ton of money for them, but it’s all worth it when Yuri legitimately goes (๑♡⌓♡๑) at him.
Leo tries to talk Otabek into writing his number on Yuri’s takeaway cup one day because it’s getting ridiculous watching Otabek pine, and ofc, Otabek is 300% against it. They bicker a little behind the counter, and Otabek doesn’t even really realise that they’re getting a little loud, until he hisses two octaves too loudly “there’s no rule that says that I have to talk to him just because I like him” at Leo, and all Leo does is to give him a shit-eating grin.
Yuri has heard him, because ofc Yuri is behind him.
+ God Tier Blushing™ from Otabek + Yuri low-key rambling about coming to get extra marshmallows + Leo still grinning and maybe wiggling his eyebrows a little
And then, when Otabek absolutely cannot take it (it being 30% Leo being a shit, and 70% being Yuri’s face) anymore, “So are you going to go on a date with me or not?”
Imagine Eleven going to a petting zoo for the first time and feeding apple slices to a baby goat and hugging an alpaca while Mike looks on nervously because a llama once spit on him when he was younger and he’s terrified of it happening again. Eventually El convinces him to get closer—she has a way with animals—and Mike ends up hugging the alpaca too.
