did u see how much yuuri had to drink at the sochi banquet?? like i get that champagne isn't vodka and it's bubbly and cute but it's still got a decent amount of alcool in there. 16 flutes that we know for sure, plus whatever amount straight from the bottle, and who knows what else he got his hands on. anyway hc that vic boasts that he's Russian and can hold his liquor so good but honestly he's such a lightweight and yuuri can drink him under the table any day (minako still beats them both tho)
AHH I saw a meta about this once but I don’t have a link to it!!! It was definitely a lot lololol. AND OH MY GOD YOU’RE SO RIGHT. Victor is down in no time and Yuuri is like “Really? That’s it? I’m not even BUZZED” and Victor is literally so shook he cannot be l i e v e. “Yuuri, you’re shorter than me, you can barely handle frosting on a cake without tit being too sweet for you, yet you just outdrank me w/o breaking a sweat??”
Note: Sorry that this took so long. I will start working on the TJeff request that I promised to work on earlier this week tonight and hopefully finish it tomorrow. For now, I hope you enjoy part 2 of Fat Fingers though. c:

been unable to go to sleep that night, even if you tried really hard to do so.
It had been a horrible day and you wanted nothing but to tell your family how
much you hated their influence on your life. But, if you did it would mean that
you would never see them again and they were definitely someone you did not
want to make your enemy, as they could make your life a living hell. You had no
choice but to try and live at least a little bit by their rules.
point, you found yourself deciding to message Daveed on Facebook. At first, you
had no idea what to write, but you just really felt like you owed him an
apology and if he did not accept it, you sure would be embarrassed. But, you
would have tried. At least the likelihood of you two ever meeting again was
pretty much to zero.
“Hey, I don’t know if you remember
me, but I was the girl who ran into you this morning. I just really wanted to
apologize for the way my ‘friend’ acted. Anyway, that’s probably all. Bye” You
typed awkwardly and send it to him. You were not sure whether he would reply or
not, but just as you had put your phone down on your bedside table again, your
phone buzzed. When you checked, you had not expected to see Daveed’s name on
the display, but were unable to help the grin that spread across your lips. He
really did respond.
“Hey Y/N, I
remember you. No need to apologize though, it’s not your fault. I hope that you
still want to take me up on that coffee soon. I’m heading to bed now, but feel
free to call me at some point. Number is 510-555-0150. Hope to see you soon”
Diggs just given you his number? You blinked a couple of times and checked the
display another time just to make sure that he had indeed given you his number.
He definitely had. You could not help but wonder why, but it made you smile
like an idiot. And blush a tiny bit too.
his number in your phone and contemplated on whether you should text him or
not. You decided on the later, as he had told you that he was going to bed. So,
yet again you placed your phone on the nightstand and as you were about to fall
asleep, finally being able to after you had gotten the apology off your chest,
you received another message. Surprisingly enough, it was from Daveed as well.
not too much to ask, could you send me a text?” He asked and you chuckled
replied, before finding his name in your contacts. You were unsure about what
to write. You could just send him a hi with your name, but that seemed sort of
boring. “I think I am the one who owes you coffee. Goodnight, Diggs” You texted
and finally went to sleep after sending it.
You woke up
to a text from Daveed next morning. You had not expected it, but it honestly
made you happy. Getting a response from him last night had saved your night and
getting a text from him now definitely was a great start on an otherwise
probably stressful day.
“Mornin. I don’t
think so, Y/LN. I’ll buy coffee tonight, if you’re up for it? Have a great
day.” The text said. You giggled softly and shook your head. You honestly still
found yourself doubting that this was indeed real.
morning Diggs. Only if I get to pay? You too” You replied as you got out of
bed. You knew that you would be off late, it would probably be around 6 before
you finally finished work, so you had to bring spare clothes because there was
no way in hell you were going back to your apartment before going for coffee
with Daveed. First, you changed into a pair of jeans, a white chiffon dress
shirt and a blue blazer. It was nothing special, but it was suited for work.
For the coffee trip you settled on a cute, wine red dress that reached to just
above your knee, a lemon curry knitted cardigan and a pair of black heels. It
was nothing special, but you wanted to at least do a little bit to look
were heading out the door, you received another text from Daveed. “Guess we’ll
see about that. How does 7 sound? It’s a date” You read with a smile.
good. Noted. Where are we going?” You asked. So, it was actually a date. You
were going on a date with Daveed freaking
Diggs. You hoped that you could make it there in time. Otherwise, you could
probably just tell him whatever time you needed.
know yet. I can pick you up at work at 6:45, if that’s cool?” You didn’t get to
reply for a while, since you were in a bit of a rush to get to the subway, so
it wasn’t until you stepped out of the subway again, that you got to actually
text him back.
see you at 6:45 then” You texted and added your work address as you made your
way to your office. It luckily was not a long walk and you made it there in
about 5 minutes. You were later than usual, but still made it on time.
went by way too slowly. You wanted nothing else but to get out of there and go
on that coffee date with Daveed. You were really looking forward to it, but had
to push it to the back of your mind to get some work done. It worked for the
most part, but you were not surprised when some of your co-workers noticed how
happy you seemed, which had become pretty rare those days.
you so happy Y/N?” Your friend Emma had asked while you were sat at a table
with her, along with two other friends from work at lunch.
not really knowing what to say. You looked up at her with a nervous chuckle and
looked at the two others as well. They had definitely noticed your
significantly happier mood too, so there was no way you were getting around
this one. “I… Uhm. I’m going on a date.” You murmured and stared into your food.
You filled your mouth with food so you were unable to answer any other
questions for now.
Seriously? Are you really going on a date? That’s so exciting. Who’s the lucky
one?” She asked, a bit too loud. A few of your other co-workers turned to your
table to look at you. You felt your mouth go dry as you felt very exposed under
big deal…” You trailed off. You bit your lower lip as you wondered whether or
not you should tell them. You had bonded over your mutual fondness for
clipping. after all. “Daveed Diggs.” You finally blurted under your breath.
They were going to figure it out anyway when he picked you up later.
She almost shouted and you felt yourself slide further into the comfort of your
chair. You sensed that she was about to scold you. She was head over heels for
the guy after all. “Fuck you, Y/N. You knew that I had a crush on him.” She
lightly at her. “Please, Emma. I will set you two up if it’s that big of a
deal.” You answered ironically as you rolled your eyes.
expression softened at that and she shook her head softly. “No. God no. You two
suit each other much better. Besides, I’m an even crazier fan than you. How did
you two even meet?” She rambled. The rest of your friends sat staring at you in
silence and you began to grow uncomfortable.
big deal… I just spilled my coffee on him.” You replied as you quickly filled
your mouth with more food to stop the endless row of questions. Luckily, Emma
seemed to get the hint and the 4 of you fell into your usual, cosy
conversations while you finished lunch.
hours felt more like years. You kept looking at the clock every 5 minutes or so
and you were always disappointed. You worked hard to finish what you needed
before 6 pm. You knew that there was no way in hell you were finishing up until
at least 30 minutes later, but you hoped that you would at least be ready then.
Luckily, you managed to finish what you were working on in the half an hour you
had left and once the time showed 6:30pm, you finally closed your computer.
your station, bringing your bag with you to the ladies’ room. Once inside one
of the booths, you quickly changed into the clothes you had prepared from home
and fixed your make up in front of the mirror. You did not feel as confident as
you had hoped, but you knew that you just had to roll with it. You were not
going to wear your work clothes out for a date, so this had to do.
With a soft
sigh you left the bathroom. It would only be a couple of minutes until Daveed
was picking you up outside. So, you bid Emma goodnight and headed down the
stairs. Once outside, people started to spill out of the building as they had
just finished as well. You texted him, just to make sure that he knew that you
were ready. “I’m outside now” you wrote.
You did not
receive a text from him, which was probably due to the fact that he was just
around the corner. You were pretty happy when you saw him walking once he
turned the corner of the street, as driving around LA at this time of the day
was really hard.
spotted you in the crowd of people leaving your office, his face lit up in a
smile. “Y/N. Hey.” He smiled as he made his way to you and once in front of
you, he gently took your hand and pressed a soft kiss to the back of it, his
beard tickling your skin lightly. A pinkish blush spread across your cheeks.
a gentleman.” You teased with a soft smile. There was no real fire behind it
though. You were just really relieved that he actually wanted to drink coffee
do learn something from playing a Frenchman in a Broadway musical, I guess.” He
joked, which made you chuckle softly.
You smiled. You felt very comfortable in his presence. He was nice, sweet. You
really hoped that this would not be the last time the two of you went out for
coffee, even if it would just be as friends in the future. He had this
personality that you just could not help but love.
“So… I was
thinking. Can I ask you out for dinner instead? Nothing fancy, but I never got
around to eat anything and since you just finished work, I figured you didn’t
either.” He asked.
softly. “Yeah. That would be great, honestly. I’m starving.” You admitted,
which made him chuckle softly. “So, where do you want to go?” You asked.
this great café not too far from here where they sell food too. How does that
sound?” He suggested.
food. Classy.” You joked, before you nodded. “Sounds great. Lead the way?” You
questioned. You probably did not know the place he was talking about anyway.
gently took your hand, holding onto it loosely as he led the way down the
street. You thought that perhaps this would be a great night out with him
without your family or any of their friends figuring out what you were doing.
feared that they would figure out what was going on, so you were pretty
grateful once you got to the café and headed inside. Luckily, no one seemed to
have noticed you and if they did, you were done defending your choices in men
to them. If you wanted to date someone who they did not like, they would just
have to deal with that.
you to a small table in the back of the café, pulling a chair out for you to
sit in. You giggled softly at the gesture and said down. “Thank you, Monsieur.”
You joked., which made him snort, even if he was unable to hide the smirk
tugging at the corners of his lips.
You already know what I do. So, what do you do?” He asked. You bit your bottom
lip lightly at his question. You really did not think your life was that
interesting, but you knew that telling him about yourself was inevitable.
“I just do
office work. Nothing interesting.” You said, as you lowered your gaze with a
slight shrug. You could definitely find better things to do, but your mum had
gotten you this job a while ago, so you felt like you were unable to just
What if I think it’s interesting?” He challenged with an arched eyebrow. He
obviously was not going to let you off that easily.
shrugged. “I honestly don’t think you do.” You answered with a shy smile. Your
work was nothing interesting. It barely even payed your bills, but it was
better than letting your parents pay for some expensive life style that you did
your evening was spent like that, asking each other questions about your lives.
You found his to be much more interesting than yours, even though Daveed kept
telling you that he thought your life was pretty interesting. However, at the
subject of family your mood seemed to do a complete 1-80. You truly wanted
nothing to do with them. If anything, you wanted them out of your life, but it
was an impossible task.
“I… Like I
said, my family is very… Republican. Racists, homophobes, neo Nazis. Stuff like
that.” You explained as you lowered your gaze. People often thought that you
were the same. But, you had very different believes compared to the rest of
could obviously see that the topic of family bothered you a lot and you were
quite surprised when you felt a pair of soft, warm hands wrap around yours. “Well,
at least you aren’t like them, Y/N.” He smiled softly, trying to cheer you up.
It did not work however, and actually made things a bit worse. You did not dare
to tell him, though.
“No, I know.
They let me know every day…. Things would be so much easier if I could just live
by their rules.” Your murmured, looking down at your hands. You hated that you
had to at least try and live the way they wanted you to, but you had no other options.
but I am glad that you are different. You deserve better than a family who is
against all your believes.” He sighed.
nodded, as you had no idea what to say. “I just really want to not have to be
viewed as one of them.” You blurted, biting your lower lip slightly.
“Who do you
think views you as the same as them? You seemed to make your opinion on the
election very clear, at least from what I could tell.” He seemed really
surprised at what you had said. He definitely did not think that you were like
them in anyway.
know… Just. People. Everyone I meet seem to know my parents.” You shrugged,
before shaking your head. “Anyway. Let’s talk about something else.” You added.
You just did not know what. You wanted to change the subject though, as you
felt tears starting to sting your eyes as the topic of conversation fell on
luckily seemed to pick up on it and quickly changed the subject. “So, was
spilling your coffee on me really an accident or did you do it intentionally to
get to talk to me?” He teased, instantly lifting your mood.
“I wish it
was on purpose, but it honestly wasn’t.” You giggled softly. It would have been
a smart move, but it was honestly an accident.
waved at a waiter to pay for the food and coffee the two of you had finished a
while ago, he chuckled lightly at your response. “You could have fooled me.” He
winked. You immediately felt a blush creep up your neck and heat up your
time it won’t be an accident, D. It did gain your attention after all. Or was
it my dashing looks?” You sassed him. You too could play that game.
about to protest when Daveed handed the waiter his credit card and he held his
hand up to cut you off. “I’m buying, my treat. You can pay next time.” He said.
you were not going to win this one, so you simply nodded with a soft sigh. “If
there’s going to be a next time.” You teased.
definitely is.” He said. The two of you got up once the waiter had returned to
your table with Daveed’s credit card.
The two of
you left the restaurant together and once outside, you finally turned to him to
answer. “What makes you so sure that I want to see you again, Diggs?” You challenged
with an arched eyebrow. You definitely did, though. And as soon as possible.
you think I’m hot.” He winked at you, which made your mouth fall open slightly.
Daveed.” Your blurted as a blush spread across your cheeks. He was not wrong,
though. You definitely thought he was hot and he had a great personality too,
which made it even worse. You knew that your family would in no way approve of
any form of relationship with a person of colour, let alone a rapper who wrote
a song about how much he hates Donald Trump. Also, you thought that Daveed
could do a lot better than someone like you and it honestly scared and confused
you a bit, that he wanted to see you again.
Though, for tonight I just want to say thank you.” He grinned, which made you
D. Tonight was great.” You smiled, as you tiptoed to place a light kiss against
his cheek, his stubble tickling your chin lightly. You then flagged down a cab
and waved goodbye. It had been an absolutely amazing evening and you were
honestly really looking forward to seeing him again.

That thing where you’re in your weekly team meeting, discussing the New Enterprise HR System for Doing People Things, and you stop to blow your nose, again, and instead of continuing your thought about non-anonymous feedback from your peers, you digress into ancient Egyptian mummification rituals and, how, on days like today, you think you could go for one of those hook things they used to clean out one’s head because, seriously, like, fuck sinuses.
Two hours more and I’m done. I’m free for the weekend, free from this miserable job
and free to do whatever the hell I want.
Fridays are always busy, and today is not the
exception. I run all over the bar serving beers, bourbon, even champagne to a
group of friends celebrating that one of them got fired. I don’t stop until
those last two hours, when the group of friends decides to go dancing, the
solitary drinkers realize that it’s time to go home, and I end up with just a
few customers left.
I’m finishing serving a beer to one of my regulars
when the door opens once again. A solitary guy enters the bar, walking at his
own pace towards one of the stools. When I get near the new guy I immediately
know that something’s wrong.
“What can I help you with?” I ask him,
showing the nicest smile I can provide.
“I don’t know, a beer?”
“Well, you look like you could have something
nicer” I mumble, examining the man in front of me, “What about a
My sudden enthusiasm shocks him and I’m sure he ends
up nodding just because I startled him.
“I’ve never had a margarita before” He says,
and I can sense he’s a bit ashamed.
“Really? Margaritas are amazing” I say as I
put all the ingredients on my side of the bar, “You have tequila, and a
bit of lime. It’s the perfect combination!”
I start explaining the whole process of the drink as I
prepare it. The man looks at my hands impressed as I mix everything. When I’m
done, I give him his drink, wishing that he likes it.
I leave the solitary man alone to prepare more drinks
for my other customers, always keeping an eye on the guy enjoying the margarita.
Half an hour passes before I get a call from the guy,
his eyes have been glued to his phone for the last couple of minutes.
“Everything okay?” I ask him.
“Can I have another drink?” He asks, and I
can see that whatever is troubling him isn’t good.
“Sure, you want another margarita or you wanna have
“I’m not really a bar type of guy, I’m not sure
what other drinks you can make” He says, and I can feel the same shame as
before on his choice of words.
“Have you tried martinis before?” He shakes
his head and I provide a new big smile to him, “Great, I’ll make you one!”
I do the same as before, explaining all the
ingredients that the drink has, the process and some variations you can make to
it. Once I’m done, I stay with him as he tries the new drink. A smile appears
on his lips as he finishes his first sip.
“Oh, that’s good” He says, with the first
smile of the night, I provide my own smile as I watch him take another sip.
“I’m glad you like it!”
Most of the people have gone home, and I’m left with
only two people in the bar. I leave the solitary guy alone once again as I
receive the payment from the last customer. The solitary guy notices that he’s
the only one left in the bar and calls me to his side.
“Do people tell you their names? Because I just
realized that I haven’t said mine and I’m extremely ashamed of that”
“Only if they want to” I laugh, “It’s
okay if you want to keep your anonymity”
“I’m Jared” He presents himself, offering me
his hand to shake. I shake his hand, presenting myself with a kind smile.
“Have you been working here for long?”
“Two years… I think”
“Wow, that’s why these things taste so
great” Jared laughs, taking another sip of his martini.
Jared starts making more questions about my job, about
the people that comes to the bar. When I tell him that I still got 45 minutes
left at the bar he offers to accompany me for the rest of my shift.
“Why are you the only one working here? It’s Friday
night and this place must have been full a while ago”
“It was” I say, raising both of my eyebrows, “And I
wasn’t supposed to be alone, I work with my boss, but his girlfriend’s water
“Oh” Is the only things he says, and I can sense that
what’s wrong with him has to do with what I just mentioned.
“Are you okay? You’ve been checking your phone ever
since you arrived here”
complicated” He mumbles, fixating his eyes on his drink.
don’t have to tell me if you don’t want to, I was just… worried”
eyes shift from the drink to me. He seems pretty down, his shoulders low, bags
under his eyes. And let’s not forget about the fact that he’s alone in a bar.
a few seconds of silence, Jared drinks his whole drink in a second, asking me
to make him another. As I start working on his new drink, he starts talking.
just thought I had the perfect relationship, you know? House, dogs, engagement
ring, everything” He stops for a second to catch his breath, I lift my
eyes to see him rub one of his eyes with his sleeve, “At first I thought
she was cheating on me”
don’t want to interrupt him with unnecessary comments like: “What? How
could someone cheat on you? I mean, come on, have you watched yourself in a
mirror? You’re a god!”. I just bite my lip, waiting for him to continue.
you have a boyfriend?” He asks me, it takes me a minute to shake my head
no, “But I’m sure you’ve experienced that feeling of not being wanted, when
your partner just… avoids you”
I think so. That usually means bad news” I mutter.
nods, giving a sip to his drink.
why I thought she was cheating on me, but no, she wasn’t doing that”
was it then?” I ask, way more interested than I should. I end up biting my
does not answer my question immediately, instead, he takes a second to check
his phone again. A new message appears on the screen, I want to see the name on
the screen, even though I know I shouldn’t. His expression does not change as
he reads the text and, once he’s finished, he looks at me again.
it was my brother, he’s a bit worried”
the one nodding this time, waiting for him to continue.
thought she was pregnant” He finally says, and I can feel my eyebrows
stops again to drink the rest of his drink, and I don’t like where this is
going. Jared does not ask me for another drink, but continues to play with the
glass on the table.
you want to be a mother?” He suddenly asks, fixing his gaze on me.
can feel the heat on my cheeks, the way my hands start trembling as the words
connect on my mind.
what happened with your girlfriend?” I ask to change the topic of the
conversation, “Is she pregnant?”
she’s not. She was so relieved when she found out, she hadn’t even told me that
there was even a possibility of her being pregnant when she appeared at my work
telling me the ‘good news’. What good news?!”
women think that a baby could be an obstacle in their careers, or they are not
prepared. Maybe she just…”

fucking wedding dress!”

brain be if she cares more about fitting in a goddamn dress than the
possibility of bringing a child to this world?”

you okay?” I ask him when he leaves his phone aside.
she’s asking me to come back”
she just want me to go home to convince me not to cancel the wedding, so she
can wear her fucking dress”

hand, “I should have done this a while ago, my brother even congratulated
me, my mom is the happiest of all”
was that bad?”
shrugs, checking the time on his phone.
I was the only one who hadn’t notice how awful she was. Anyway, I think is
already time for you to close this place”
shows me the time on his phone, it is already 4 in the morning. Jared lends me
a hand with the whole closing process, letting us surrounded by a rather weird
silence. He’s looking directly into my eyes, and I can see that he got a bit
drunk with all the drinks that I gave him. And it is that same drunkenness the
one I blame when his hands cup my face, as if asking my permission to get even

hands fall from my face, both getting inside his jacket. A smile takes over his
expression, and I feel a weight leaving my shoulders.

accepts and we start walking in silence to a more crowded street.

one?” I ask him, even when I know exactly what he’s talking about.
you want to be a mother?”
sigh, taking my time to find the perfect answer. His eyes do not look away as
he awaits for my answer. Out of nowhere, a smile takes over my expression, and
all the cheeriness that I had a couple of hours ago returns to my body.
I am a mother”
are?” He asks, stopping our walk, “But you… you are so young!”
sort of things happen, and I’m more than happy that it did” I say, never
leaving the smile disappear from my face, “Her name is Zoe, she’s
does she look like you?” Jared looks amazed by my revelation.
don’t know, everybody says she does, but I can’t really tell”
starts invading me with all sort of questions about me being a mother, and how
it is to have Zoe as my daughter. I answer them all, giving this little joy to
a drunk broken hearted man.
the end, it turns out that we are going to two different places, really far
from each other, so we are not allowed to share a cab. A bit much like our
lives. Jared is not the kind of man who lives in my sort of neighbourhood, the
one where you have to be extra careful even during the day. But Jared doesn’t
leave until I am inside a car. I receive his number before leaving, and a
promise of coming to talk to me again at the bar.
okay so I’m starting a group tour tomorrow, which means meeting a bunch of strangers and then spending 2 weeks together, which normally means…. icebreaker games. The absolute bane of my existence. Honestly someone says “okay now tell everyone two facts about yourself” and suddenly I forget what my name is, where I’m from, who I am (Also there’s the niggling doubt that I won’t get along with anyone and I’ll just be tagging along when no one really wants me there, so that’s cool). Like I’m sure it’ll be fine, I’ve never once been on a trip and not got on with at least a few of the people there but it’s still a thought.
I really wish I could keep that blog all happy and fun but I’m really not okay and I’m very sorry for the few depressing personal posts and reblogs. I should make a side blog or something. I know it’s my blog and I do what I want but y’all followed me for a reason and it’s certainly not to hear about my mental illnesses 5 times a day; so I’ll always feel bad about my mental breakdowns, and not being able to draw for days, and not answering my messages etc. I’m very sorry.
“This is so bad. This is so bad. This is the worst,” Vibe fretted, pacing frantically around the room and occasionally bumping into chairs. “Ow,” he complained.
“Stop battering my body,” said mostly-Barry Allen.
can’t help it! Your limbs are all…” Vibe waved them in demonstration,
looking very disgruntled at the way the red-suited arms moved. “There’s
so much of them.”
“Well, you’re not chopping any bits off, so we should probably focus on how to get ourselves switched back.”
flopped Barry’s body — no, Vibe’s body — no, Barry’s body, really, even
if Vibe was in it right now — onto the chair he’d just tripped over and
sighed. “I dunno, man. I mean, I’ll call Frost in, this seems more like
her game than ours, but if I’m being really honest? It doesn’t feel
like science at all. It feels more like magic.”
Barry didn’t want to consider the possibility. He hated that it even was
a possibility, but given the mess with Hawkgirl a couple months ago, it
couldn’t be ruled out. “Call Frost,” he said. He’d reserve all other
judgement until later.
