Heart Spice (Derek/Stiles)

@sterekseason requested Stiles/Derek:  we were both lovers over a decade ago and now we meet again to battle it out on this cooking program. our rivalry is strong and just because the camera operator caught us making out in the pantry doesn’t mean i won’t defeat you with the power of truffle oil AU

For winning first prize in my Birthday Giveaway, Hannah gets two fics. This is the first one based on the prompt above. I hope you enjoy it! Fic #34 in my 2017 Prompt Challenge

Heart Spice. Derek/Stiles. Teen. Also on AO3.

When Stiles was twenty-two, he had his heart broken when Derek chose his career over their relationship. A little over ten years later, they meet again on the set of a reality TV cooking competition. Derek wants a second chance, but Stiles isn’t really in a forgiving mood.

“Glad you could make it, Stiles.” Cora nods at him, offering a friendly half-smile that’s the equivalent of a wide, toothy grin from anyone else. It’s a little surprising, and also a little suspicious because Cora usually isn’t smiley.

“I almost didn’t come,” Stiles admits. “Lydia forced me into the car and drove me here before I could, how did she put it, wimp out like a whiny dork.” Stiles rolls his eyes. “For the record, I wasn’t wimping out. I was just having second thoughts because of reasons.”

Notice Me Senpai! Guide

Since I’ve been getting a few asks on how to get all of the senpais, I decided to make a quick guide for everyone who needs help!

Unlocking everyone isn’t hard as long as you have their favorite items out. If you want a certain senpai to show up often, the best way to do that is to have their top three favorite items which is listed in their profiles. Note that what I list down below isn’t everything that can make them appear and they may not be their exact favorites since I haven’t switched around my items recently. If you know what their exact favorites are (which would be an item where they’re actually interacting with it rather than just standing i.e. Basketball Club Senpai is the only one who dribbles the basketball) then please feel free to message me so I can update this list!

Thanks to a few people who have kindly messaged me, I have managed to find almost every item that a senpai interacts with. Whichever item below is listed first is the one that he has a special action with. 

Senpai List and Favorite Items

  • Nerd/Izumi Senpai - Chess Set*, Soft Armchair, Small Bookshelf

Getting CGs

These are just rough estimates of the amount of visits, so don’t worry if they don’t give you a CG exactly on say the 150th visit. Note that I haven’t unlocked every CG yet, so if you see one that I don’t have, please let me know so I can put it on the list!

Because of the new update, you can get new senpai CGs by interacting with them. So far, it seems you can get a special birthday CG if you’ve maxed out their love meter to level 8 before or on their birthday (you can see each senpai’s birthday on their character bio in the game!). As they update the game more, you can get extra CGs from senpais depending on the number of visits they have.

  • Nerd/Izumi Senpai - 30 visits(1st CG), 100 visits(2nd CG)
  • Young/Yuu Senpai - 40 visits(1st CG), 100 visits(2nd CG)

Senpai Interactions

Once you get your senpais to a full 5 hearts, you can interact with them when they visit the cafe! Here’s how it goes:

  • Basically, you have to keep touching the hearts that show up on the senpai for the love meter to fill up/level up
  • You can interact with a senpai 3 times per day, and the love meter will become full after three interactions
  • If you want to increase your level more than just once a day, you can feed your senpai cake which costs 80 gems
  • Once you’ve filled a senpai’s love meter to level 8, your senpai will be in “super love mode” for 12 hours. During this period, every time you interact with them you will have a CG-like portrait of them rather than their usual chibi selves you see in the cafe. They’ll also say a lot of cute/sweet things to you when you talk to them!

Extra Information:

  • Try to save up your gems for the cafe expansion (200 gems). It helps you encounter more senpais at once and since there are more of them, you can easily earn back all your gems. 
  • Once you feel that you have enough coins, switch over to Gourmet Beans since rarer senpais will show up more often. Then once you have enough gems, switch to Gold Beans and Magic Beans because the special senpais will occupy often if you use those! 
  • To get all the notes and CGs from each Senpai depends on the number of hearts they have. Once you get to the third/green heart you will receive a note from them. After that you have to wait until they get to the fifth/red heart to see a special scene and get their CG. For the special senpais, there are two unlockable CGs (4th heart = 1st CG, 5th heart = 2nd CG).
  • To increase their hearts, you have to get them to visit the cafe often which is why it’s important to leave out their favorite items especially if you want a CG from a specific senpai.
  • An anon made a great suggestion for those who keep getting senpais who already have their hearts maxed out. It’s a cold method, but if they’re occupying an item, simply remove the item which will make the senpai leave and then put it back and hope for the senpai you want to show up. It’s kind of harsh, but it will definitely speed up the process of collecting everyone’s notes and CGs haha.
  • Always make sure try your luck with the daily gacha! The prizes can range from different types of beans, gold, and diamonds.
  • Even though Ninja senpai can now visit your cafe, you can still watch ads from him to get free coins and gems.

Those are all the useful tips I can give you guys for now! If I find anything new I’ll be sure to update this. Again, feel free to message me if you have any other questions or if I need to correct something on this guide. Happy senpai hunting!

Suck it up Saturday

Running around cleaning the house like a fiend this morning and then the cooking will start this afternoon. Gotta color Eggs too. Jim is grocery shopping while I clean.

I invited any of our Resident Artists who aren’t going home for Easter to come to dinner and play in the BARn afterwards. So it’s dusting, vacuuming, cleaning bathrooms and dishes (not at the same time) this morning. Cuz I work 40+ hours a week! Who has time to do it then!

On the menu:

Ham (yuck-not a fan)
Potatoes au gratin
Butternut bisque

Devilled Eggs
Pickles and Olives
Nacho Pie and chips
Stuffed Celery
Stuffed mushrooms

Strawberry shortcake for dessert

Wine and Watermelon margaritas

And I think the RAs are bringing fruit salad and even more munchies!

There will be no Starving Artists tomorrow!
