How d a r e you make me fall in love with the kitchen!witch Bitty - kind, domestic witchcraft makes me so happy and you almost made me cry happy tears reading those asks/thoughts
I’d like to think Jack has a bit of the witch about him too. Not like Bitty, but he’s preternaturally good with plants, and animals love him.
So imagine, if you will, another life where they find a quaint little town in New England, with cobblestone walks and clusters of stores and cafes. They buy a Victorian building in the center of town sandwiched between a bistro and an antiques store. The downstairs is the storefront where Bitty sells a few pastries as well as charms, herbal remedies, tonics, and tinctures (he makes a killing off of this bath bomb craze; his can legitimately make you feel calm or energized or centered).
They sell some live and dried plants too, because that’s Jack’s hobby; growing herbs, spices, and small house plants. The roof of the building is flat, in parts, and they’ve set up a small greenhouse where Bitty can always find Jack if he needs him. Bitty uses everything Jack grows in his enchantments and claims that the gentle, loving intention Jack puts into his plants makes all the difference. Their store is green floor to ceiling, plants on every available space and hanging from the rafters, and no one can feel stressed or nervous in the place it’s so calming. Jack takes special requests for floral arrangements, sometimes, from their regular customers.
Their little tortoiseshell Begonia twines herself around the stool legs of the workbenches, curls up in the afternoon sun on the faded, mint green velvet of the armchair next to the window. She wakes Eric up at 4:00 to beg for breakfast (he never needs an alarm clock), hops up into Jack’s lap while he reads the newspaper, and follows them upstairs at night to their apartment to sleep in a little warm coil at their feet.
what if bitty signs up for a competitive baking tv show on a dare?? he probably wows the judges with a winning combination of incredible pastries & southern charm. meanwhile, the entire samwell men’s hockey team cheers him on as they watch bitty’s episode on tv in the haus
