[AO3]

For The Power Of Mabel Week, day 3: The Future!

In high school, Mabel works in a yarn shop. One of her coworkers needs advice about unicorns and choices and growing up. Fortunately, Mabel has tea and a huge stockpile of knitting metaphors.

(They’re like 16; the owner of the Yarn Bomb is probably a witch; and Mabel’s yarn stash is infinite because Fidds and the Grunks give her money for it: Fidds so she can knit things for the poor and needy, the Grunks so she can knit things for their monster friends.)


The Yarn Bomb wasn’t usually busy on Tuesday evenings. All the kids had homework, or if they were avoiding homework could find something more interesting to do than hang out in a fiber arts store. The Old Biddies Knitting Group only met on Wednesdays and Saturdays, and Mrs. Drummond and Mrs. Igorashi were working on large-form sculptures these days so they weren’t in every night like they used to be. They’d just published the workshop schedule for the next month, so there weren’t any classes.

It would be fine, Molly told herself. It would be fine and empty and she wouldn’t have to spend the whole time with her Chipper Sales Girl Face on and maybe she could read or do homework or … wallow in existential misery …

Yeah. Probably that last one.
