how gom + kagami & kiyoshi would flirt with their barista while ordering a holiday drink
I’m using the holiday Starbucks drink list just because!
Akashi: He asks for a Toffee Nut latte, and he tries to talk coffee to you, although he knows almost nothing about it. You giggle at his attempt, but Akashi actually stutters and elaborates falsely on topics he doesn’t know, so you just stand there, nodding like you understand what he’s saying. AKASHI HOLDS UP THE LINE, but he doesn’t really care because he thinks you’re cute. He ends up contradicting himself, and you burst out in laughter, and that’s when he asks for your number.
Aomine: When you give him his drink, a Peppermint Mocha, he eyes you subtly and drinks it, proclaiming that it’s way too sweet. He’s one of those flirters who give you a damn hard time and makes you HATE him and he consistently comes back to the store, requesting the same thing each time and also complaining, and singles you out so you’re the only one who knows how to make the drink. You actually hate his guts, but one day when you were giving him the drink, hecalls you “sweetheart” and asks when your break ends. You try to blow him off, but he waits in the store for you.
Kise: Kise bonds with you over the design of the cups. He asks for a chestnut praline latte, and is coy in his flirting. He does things like lean over the counter, ask for extra cups of water, and lingers there longer than usual. He comes back several times and it doesn’t take long for you to realize he’s flirting. He slips his number with a napkin one day when you’re giving him his drink - giving you the option to text him first or not.
Midorima: With a bit of pushing from you, his regular barista, Midorima opts for something else besides the flat white. He gets the eggnog latte since he’s a fan of eggnog, and he always overly sweats when he’s in line because he gets nervous when he talks to you. He doesn’t linger like Kise in the coffee shop, but he brings his books there so he can study and look at you make coffee from afar. One day, he stays there longer than usual and you go on your break and plop down next to him, scaring him a bit, and that’s how you relationship takes off.
Murasakibara: Mura is one of those people at Starbucks who never get any drinks, they just get food. He enjoys the Gingerbread loaf and he always gets like 10 so you know he is notorious for this. One day, you suggest for him to get the gingerbread latte to duplicate the flavor, and he loves it so so much, he kind of harasses you to get the recipe. You told him you couldn’t tell him, so he kind of slyly asks if he can see you outside of your work hours so you can show him how to make it.
Kuroko: He loves the pumpkin spice latte and he always asks for extra whipped cream. He becomes known as the boy who asks for that, and you’re the barista who always gives him a LOT of extra cream, so he’s drawn to you because of that. Kuroko is very shy so he’s unsure of how to approach you, but one day, he comes right before your break and catches you as you leave. He kind of stops you and says like “you’re extra whipped cream girl-chan,” and you giggle and he compliments what you’re wearing and then smoothly transitions into getting your number (smoOOTh kuroko)
Kagami: Kagami kind of blunders into Starbucks very confused because Himuro wanted him to order something so he just asks you (a very pretty barista) some recommendations and you gave him a caramel latte. He was just really fascinated with your smooth actions in making the coffee so when you gave it to him, he was kind of staring at you incessantly, and he accidentally dropped one cup (because kagami is clumsy af). He blushes heavily and tries to leave the store, but you make him another one and draws a smiley face on the cup for him to feel better. He comes back, basically every day to try to catch you at your shift since the incident.
Kiyoshi: Kiyoshi loves the Christmas cookie latte, and he discovered that through you. as an indecisive person, he couldn’t decide among the lists of drinks so he asks you, his barista, your favorite, and since then he’s been loving the cookie latte. He always comes to see you - his excuse being that he wants his latte with different variations (sometimes less sugar, with a pump of peppermint) and you accommodate to his needs. He knows your name and the name of your shift mates, so you’re unaware that he’s flirting with you. One day, you bump into him right before you start your shift and he asks for your number and also to treat you out for lunch during your break.
excuse my shitty edit, but i’ve decided to put together all the links into one place that i’ve found that i want to reference, mainly writing and food. (will be adding more constantly) (updated: 1/26/16)
• Peter Parker in sweaters and big foofy scarves
• Peter bringing you to that place with the big fire pits and free marshmallows for roasting because he doesn’t know how to use the fireplace
• cold fingers -discreetly- sneaking under your shirt
• “What! My fingers are gonna fall off from frostbite, you’re saving my life!”
• r ed c h e e k s && n o s e
• Peter with whipped cream on his face from the ridiculous holiday Starbucks drink he gets
• making fun of him
• kissing it off
• Peter carrying your pumpkin home from the pumpkin patch because he has super strength
• Thanksgiving dinner with the Parkers
• “Babe come and cuddle”
• “No Pete” (you would but needy Peter is your favorite)
• “But turkey makes me tired”
• “That’s just a myth Peter”
• “Then why am I tired ??”
• waking him up wearing nothing but one of his tacky reindeer sweaters
• him getting embarrassed and then horny and then embarrassed that he was horny
• even though that was the whole point, Peter
• but he makes you open presents first anyway
• wearing the little spider charm necklace he gave you during sex after
• “Merry Christmas darling”
• “You’re such an old man Pete”
A/N: Hey, everyone! I decided to take a little break from requests and do an imagine/one shot that I’ve come up with myself! So if you want a part 2 (which is very very holiday focused) let me know! Or maybe one from Peter’s point of view? It only seemed fit to write this first because it’s the holidays so why not have some holiday Peter feels? Also I think this situation would be set before or at the beginning stages of Peter gaining powers and becoming Spider-Man. I don’t think he would need caffeine or even have the time to sit down and do his homework in a coffee shop once he’s Spidey. Just wanted to state that lool anyways, hope you enjoy! ;)
Summary: Peter is a regular at your Starbucks and you are a regular part-time barista.
Warnings: None other than the fact that it’s kinda long? I don’t know, it’s been a while since I wrote. Also its pretty cheesy and fluffy.
i don't even supergirl but once again your writing is politely forcing me to ship something hmu with some christmas supercorp headcanons
lmao ‘politely forcing’ aka my usual method of persuasion also i love how this is like the second ship i’ve gotten you into, from a show you don’t even watch
ANYWAY so lena is used to spending christmases alone, like before she went to boarding school it was usually only her and lex and maybe the housekeeper, but usually not, and then when he left for metropolis, it was usually just lena and whatever meals isabel had prepped and frozen for her before leaving to be with her family for the holidays. and once she was in boarding school, it was much the same, she’s not ever invited home save for her senior year and she starts to wonder if that was all contrived, all some plot of her mother’s to humiliate her, to break her into something she could control
yikes that got sadder than i had intended (and i intended it to be p sad) but the point is that lena’s used to holidays alone, college saw a one well intentioned girl dropping hints abt lena going back to hers for christmas but lena was still a little gun shy when it came to Actual Relationships and then the news abt lex broke and that girl dropped her ass faster than lena could’ve predicted, but honestly she’s not surprised
so she spends the time spanning from november to january alone, usually drinking wildly expensive scotch and buying herself way too much shit to make up for the fact that the entire city is lit up with light, that people are happy and with people they love and her apartment is unchanged, just as empty as it was the rest of the year. when she makes her move to gain control of l corp from her mother and the board, she starts working through the holidays, trying to prove herself capable and dedicated and then when she gets it, gets the company, then she has a reason to ignore the holidays (even though she’s always sure to make sure holiday bonuses are on time and no one, not even the cleaning staff or jess or anyone is scheduled to come in starting from the 23rd and running through the 1st of the year)
this was a v long way of saying that lena hates this time of year and honestly dread fills her entire being whenever the first notes of a christmas song start to play in the elevator to her office on the day after thanksgiving
ANYWAY kara LITERALLY loves christmas so much, she really does, and the danvers were always a relatively festive family, like they did the whole thing with the lights and ice skating and hot cocoa but then alex was older and not as interested AND THEN kara comes along and its like having a little kid all over again so they go all out her first few christmases and even after jeremiah ‘dies’, eliza and alex work really really hard to keep it up bc even if it hurts its better than wallowing, better to try and get kara to smile than to stare at the empty spot at the table
basically kara is the Most Festive. like you are kidding yourself if you think she does not deck the fuckin halls and drink every holiday starbucks drink and spend way too much time picking out the perfect gifts for everyone she loves. my girl is so holly jolly that she even manages to get alex in the spirit of things, usually ending with alex a lil tipsy from heavily liquored eggnog but wearing a santa hat and elf shoes just the same
the superfriends find it terribly endearing bc duh and everyone goes along with it, goes caroling at the children’s hospital, goes on a tour of the city lights, the whole nine yards bc who on earth or any other planet could say no to that face
so you have Lena, the Grinch, and Kara, the Ghost of Every Christmas Ever and their first christmas together is actually p funny and also a little sad bc they’re not even dating and lena’s just lost what little family she had left and kara’s feeling so bad about it and then when she finds out that lena spent thanksgiving alone, is planning on spending christmas alone too she feels even WORSE and appears at lcorp with a bunch of thanksgiving leftovers under the pretense of having lunch with lena but with full intentions to casually invite lena to friendsmas
and its a little awkward and uncomfortable at first bc lena’s still smarting from what kara said to her, still a little hurt that she wouldn’t just come out and say what needed to be said, that she came at her in such a sideways way, but kara’s just so damned earnest that lena can see she didn’t mean to hurt her, that she was scared and tired and lena understands that, cant imagine the fear she must have been going through, thinking she and everyone like her were about to die and even if kara still thinks supergirl is a secret, lena knows and can forgive her so they warm up p quickly and then kara’s slipping the topic of christmas into conversation and lena sort of waves it off, something about no rest for the wicked and then kara’s bumping her shoulder gently and leading into it in the most obvious way like so i usually host christmas over at my place….. and lena’s sort of just looking at her bc, bless her, she has no idea what kara’s getting at so kara’s continuing, rambling i’d really love it if you’d come because i dont think anyone should be alone but i completely understand if you think it’ll be too much but it’s really fun i swear! we do party games and alex makes really strong eggnog and
and then lena’s laughing a little, a small watery little laugh and asking when she should be over, what she should bring and hiding her panic bc literally???? she doesnt think she’s ever been around anyone but lex for christmas, and their christmases were very different, she’s sure, and all her memories are tinged with bitterness now, with heartache, so how the fuck??? is she supposed to act??????
kara makes it pretty easy tbh. lena shows up five minutes early with some wildly expensive alcohol from her personal collection and like so many fucking presents and kara’s eyes go a little wide before they go soft, filling in the blanks, picking up the tense of lena’s shoulders and then she’s pulling her in and telling her that alex just made the eggnog, but there’s still plenty, dont worry and then she’s in the middle of what one can only describe as a winter wonderland and holy SHIT maybe lena didnt think this through
but its……literally the best christmas lena’s ever had and it shows and kara mentions her yearly new years eve party and lena’s like i’ll bring the champagne
next christmas tho they’re together and lena spends most nights at kara’s and she really shouldnt be surprised by how early she starts decorating but the morning after thanksgiving, lena stumbles of the bedroom, still kind of hungover and definitely still working her way through the food coma aftermath, and kara’s just……just fuckn surrounded by boxes labeled CHRISTMAS!!!!!!!! and lena’s like oh please no, not today and kara’s throwing some tinsel at her and holding up one of the many sprigs of mistletoe she has stashed away for moments just like this and lena’s rolling her eyes but she’s also not stopping kara from pushing a santa hat into her hands when she leans into a kiss, even gamely puts it on and promises to help but some of us dont have kryptonian immunity to hangovers, so i’ll need a minute and some coffee
HERE ARE THEIR CHRISTMAS TRADITIONS (bc of course kara manages to get lena to actually love christmas and not just humor her)
actual city lights flight around national city: they wear dark clothes and stay out of sight, but its amazing and the first time they do it, lena’s still not that super pumped when it comes to flying, so she’s pressed as close to kara as she can be but somewhere mid-flight she starts to relax and enjoy it and kara spends more time watching lena look at the city below them than she does admiring the lights (besides, she has a sneaking suspicion that they’ll be doing this again next year)
kara sort of insists on a christmas movie marathon every year and lena’s hopeless, really, just capitulates with a long suffering sigh, but she kind of loves the hot cocoa and the cheesy movies and, mostly, loves how kara’s head inevitably lands in lena’s lap, how kara falls asleep so quickly when lena starts to run her fingers through her hair (and, like, if she keeps watching those damn movies long after kara’s dozed off, she’ll claim that she didn’t want to wake her girlfriend by reaching across for the remote)
if you dont think kara has a stocking decorating party every year, you are wrong my friend. EVERY YEAR.
darling, sweetheart, song of my soul, light of my life, don’t you think we have……maybe too many stockings?
every year we grow as people, so every year we need a new stocking. keep glittering
they have literal boxes of stockings bc kara insists that everyone make one and then agrees to store them so there are L I T E R A L piles of boxes of just stockings and when they move in together, lena declared one closet of their new place the Stocking Closet and therefore off limits to her, bc the last three times she tries to get out one of the Stocking Boxes, the entire precarious stack just fuckn collapsed on her so superheroes only, i’m afraid
hot cocoa in the park whenever it first snows; lena used to hate the cold with a burning passion, refused to go out for anything longer than ten minutes and even then made sure she was bundled up as warmly as she could manage but she figures that one of the many perks of dating an alien (one alien, in particular, of course) is that your girlfriend could serve as a portable personal space heater, so she’s pretty amenable to a walk in the park (okay, yeah, and it’s pretty adorable how kara’s eyes light up when it starts to snow again, adding to the light dusting on the ground)
midnight wrapping sessions; this is less tradition and more necessity as kara was often called away on supergirl duty just as she got started wrapping but there was always a lull in activity around christmas which meant christmas eve was the perfect time to wrap and lena’s usually up then anyway and honestly kara’s pretty excessive with ribbon and tape so lena’s really just there to reign her in a little but its still pretty fun and maybe lena has a habit of disappearing and returning in her bathrobe with a ribbon tied around her waist and…….just her bathrobe with a ribbon tied around her waist (what are you waiting for, supergirl? don’t you want to unwrap your present?) (it is the literal cheesiest line kara thinks she’s ever heard and its the worst one that lena’s ever said but kara’s still blushing HARD and nodding fast and ditching the wrapping session in a heartbeat)
@ customers who order a reduced fat eggnog latte: are you trying to trick yourself into thinking you’re being healthy? If you’re so concerned with avoiding fat then you shouldn’t even be drinking eggnog. There’s 58% saturated fat in 1 cup.
