Person A of your (BR)OTP has a very important job. Nearly everyone - even people who have worked together with A for years, and some friends they know out of work - calls them by their last name. Now imagine B accidentally calling A by their first name in front of a lot of people, leading to incessant rumours that they are in an intimate relationship… How do they handle this?
“I…I um, ah, I am sorry, Miss Swan,” Ashley stammered, the open cup of hot chocolate shaking in her hands.
She let out a long, drawn out sigh, too tired to actually verbalize her annoyance.
“It’s a white shirt, Ashley,” she grit out, failing to keep her irritation out. To be fair she had every right to be irritated with everything and everyone, seeing that it was only noon and her day had been a complete shit show thus far.
She took the offered napkins, doing her best to soak the drink, knowing damn well this would call for industrial grade detergent.
“Please, at least tell me you didn’t mix up my Chop’t order,” she said, raising her brow expectantly as she stared at her clumsy assistant. Ashley meant well, she knew that, but the girl was too clumsy by half, constantly stuttering her way through uncertainties.
“No, Thomas made sure he got it right,” Ashley said, transforming in the blink of an eye to a woman who knew exactly what she was on about - this of course, only happened when she spoke about Thomas. It was both cute and aggravating - Emma would’ve liked for Ashley to have come into her own confidence - but not everyone worked the same way, some people simply did have ‘a missing half’.
“Thomas? You went all the way to Bryant Park?”
“Yes? Sorry? I mean… it’s the best Chop’t honestly.”
My first SwannieQueenie fanart! Hope you like it, even if you don’t ship it. If you don’t like it, please don’t be disagreable. I now I have some Swens among my followers and I made this specially for them.
Fun fact: I started this on June 26… :)
I’ve been sitting on my patootie for hours now. I’ll come back next week with more Queenie and Robbie Around the World. NEXT STOP: Brazil!
Hello Alex, I’m your Secret Santa! And here’s my gift to you: something Christmas-related, with a tiny little CS reindeer baby! I’ve been terribly busy these past two weeks and I haven’t been the best Santa around (sorry!), but I do hope you like my present, and that it gives you some warm, fuzzy, Christmasy, Captain Swanny feels!
Finally, I hope you, and all who read this, are having a very Merry Christmas!
