A/N: I recently had a realization that the way my blog is structured doesn’t really give me a great leeway to express my creativity and feels for the members at random. So this is the start to a really short series of drabbles for all of the members in super short (less than 2k) drabbles! To be continued! :) Hope you guys like it.

“You’ve got a wonderful wife there, son.”

Yoongi gives the elderly man a small smile and nods in agreement, clinking his beer can against his and tipping back the cold liquor into his throats with his eyes trained on you, a feat that happens quite often.

Often Yoongi finds himself just staring at you, in awe of how someone like you ended up with someone like him.

Your friends would describe you as sweet, bubbly, kind, selfless, and bright. His friends would describe you as “the light that shined in Min Yoongi’s horribly dreadful bitch ass life.” And although he always gives them a glare or just brushes their comments off with an eye roll it’s moments like these when he feels like the six dickwads’ words can never be any more accurate.

Healthy Murphy Siblings Facts:
  • They’ve been having a two-year on-and-off prank war with a lifelike plastic iguana. They hide it in random places for the other to find and get the shit scared out of them. They know it’s found when a loud shriek rings throughout the house, and they laugh until their face gets red and veins pop out on the sides of their heads.
  • They know each other’s Starbucks orders by heart: Connor gets a Venti Iced Caffe Americano with a dash of milk and three Sweet’N Low packets. Zoe gets a Short Caramel Macchiato with a Birthday Cake Pop.
  • They totally sneak out of the house at 3am to go to Wendy’s or Taco Bell. They take their food to the playground by their house and eat on the swings. Usually while they’re still in their pajamas.
  • Zoe took Connor’s phone once and took a bunch of unattractive selfies and put it back without him noticing. Connor did the same a few days later with Zoe’s phone.
  • Zoe’s photo ID in Connor’s phone is a picture of her cross eyed, with three chins and her tongue blepped out.
  • Connor’s photo ID in Zoe’s phone is a picture of him with his upper lip curled, his nose scrunched up, and his eyes squinted.
  • Most of their notifications on Facebook are from them tagging each other in stupid memes.
  • Connor is often the chosen victim of Zoe’s Hair Salon™. It was painful at first, but Zoe picked it up really fast and now Connor goes to her willingly for braiding and bitching sessions. He goes to her room pissed off, but leaves a lot calmer and a killer fishtail braid.
  • Zoe once straightened his hair out of boredom and curiosity. Connor said he’d hide her guitar if she ever mentioned what he looked like to anyone.
  • They have matching colored streaks in their hair. Zoe’s is out in the open, while Connor’s is underlayered. They play rock-paper-scissors to decide who gets to pick that month’s color.
  • Connor painted Zoe’s nails for her Homecoming, Prom, and Graduation.
  • They invented a game called where Nerf meet bocce ball. There’s no scoring or rules, it’s mainly just an excuse to shoot Nerf Guns at the windows.
  • Zoe steals Connor’s hoodies and flannels during the winter. She says it’s to make up for all the years he stole her nail polish. He doesn’t complain.
  • They watch a lot of Food Network even when they can’t cook at all. They love Good Eats, Cake Wars, and Chopped.
  • When they’re both home from college Connor takes Zoe out to breakfast and they talk about stuff that they can’t get across over text or the phone.
  • Connor trusts Zoe with things that he can’t tell their dad.
  • Zoe trusts Connor with things she can’t tell their mom.
  • Just
  • Murphy siblings trusting each other and making up for lost time.

Park Chanyeol + Barista!Reader + Fluff

—If you see a tall guy with big ears and pale skin in the small coffee shop Downtown, just know he isn’t there for the coffee.

Chanyeol wasn’t an avid coffee fan. Perhaps he’ll drink a cup when he’s in need of caffeine for a boost in working late at the studio (since Soju won’t work and Red Bull scares the shit out of him), but he wouldn’t really drink out of likeness or pleasure.

So, how come Chanyeol found himself standing in line for a Venti Americano in the small coffee shop downtown? Well.. It actually started 2 weeks ago.

“Grande, and to go please,” you heavily sigh, slumping against the counter once you hand over your ATM card over to the cashier. You hear the lady across from you let out a sympathetic murmur as she taps in your order into the register.

“It’s your fourth order from us this week,” the cashier observes as she tucks your card and receipt under your elbow, “Are you sure it’s healthy for you to be taking this much caffeine? This late at night at that?”

“At this point,” you groan with an exhausted yawn. “I don’t even care anymore.”

Call us maybe

Levi sighs, adjusts her ponytail a little higher over her undercut. She restocks the coffee filters. She wipes the counter down with disinfectant. Again. “For shit’s sake,” she mutters under her breath.

The parade happening downtown has taken all their business away. And while Levi knows it’s smart for Hange to take their break while it’s slow, it leaves her bored. Cranky. Wishing she was literally anywhere else. Levi sighs again and resigns to picking at her nails.

The bell above the door chimes and Levi, for the first time since she started this job three weeks ago, finds herself anticipating an interaction with a customer. “Hi, welcome to Maria’s. How may I-” Levi narrowly avoids sputtering when she looks up.

This woman is gorgeous. Sun-kissed skin. Large, turquoise eyes. Long, brown hair. Long, brown legs. Levi licks her lips, tongue suddenly like sandpaper, throat faring no better. Christ, those legs go on for miles, accentuated beautifully by those high waisted shorts.

Then she smiles and Levi’s face starts to burn. “What can I…” The woman’s head tilts to the side and Levi wants to melt into the floor. She’s so stunning. Levi needs an adult. Where the actual fuck is Hange when you need them? Oh god, is Shitty Glasses really her go-to adult? Levi shakes her head. “What can I get you?”

Bring the following:
Purchased album

See you tomorrow, monbebes! Congratulations, once again and we hope that you have a wonderful day!”

Is this a dream? Am I really going to meet MONSTA X tomorrow? you thought as you paced back and forth inside your mom’s cafe. The shop didn’t have that much costumer so you had the whole cafe to yourself and to some costumers. “Yah, [y/fn]! What’s gotten into you? Could you please stop what you’re doing?” you looked at person who just scolded you, and it was no other than your beloved mother. “Mom, pinch me.”

Your mother didn’t hesitate on pinching you which made you wince in pain. “Mom! That hurts.” Whimpering away from your mom, the employees couldn’t help but snicker at your misery. “Anyways, my raffle ticket got chosen for Monsta X’s fansign event.” your mom gave you a sarcastic smile and beamed, “That’s great, honey. Finally the cafe will have its peace tomorrow.” The cafe was really lively when you came back from Boston.

“Geez, mom. The cafe’s been really lively! I bet you guys are going to miss me. You’ll be begging me to stay and mingle with everyone.” Looking around, your mom just disappeared without even making a sound. You were left dumbfounded, puffing your cheeks as you couldn’t believe your mom. Your mother was someone who’s full of surprises but you love her no matter what.

After five years of being away from Korea, you came back as soon as you graduated from University and here you are, waiting for the company that you’ve recently applied to to accept you or maybe reject you. But for the mean time you decided to help your mom out in her cafe. You were quite surprised when your mom announced that she and your dad decided to build a cafe during your second year’s first semester. The cafe’s really popular, well you didn’t expect it to be, but a lot of celebrities were seen hanging out in your parent’s cafe.

Anyways, you decided to help out at the counter. Mina, the employee working behind the counter, flashed you a big smile and greeted you. “Hey, [y/n].” You nodded and said, “You should take break, unnie. I’ll take it from here.” Mina was actually just a newly hired employee and she’s been working for six straight hours without taking any break. You kind of felt sorry for her since you know that the guys had been pressuring her. “A-are you sure? Won’t the boss get angry at me?” This literally made you burst out laughing.

“Is my mom that scary? Hahahaha, don’t worry besides she knows that you’ve been working really hard. If she asks you why you’re taking break, tell her that I told you.” Mina was quite hesitant for a while but she took your advice, thanked you and went straight to the employee’s lounge. You looked at the time and it was still two in the afternoon.

This made you think about life, about the life of the employees, even the life of the desserts that the employee’s have been making. How on earth can they live while waiting for costumers? Wouldn’t they get bored? You started to ponder upon these thoughts until you were brought back to reality when you heard the door chimed. Looking up, you said the usually thing that the employees say. “Welcome to Busy Bean Café!”


What was that? you thought as you froze on your spot when you saw the people who just came in. Something was wrong. Literally wrong. You never felt this feeling before, your heart was beating really fast, your hands started to get real clammy and your stomach started to churn. It was really weird ‘cos the people who just came in were wearing masks but you thought that they were really attractive.

“Is Mrs. [y/mom’s/n] around?” The guy without any mask asked. “She is but I don’t–”

“Oh, welcome to Busy Bean Café.” Your mom just appeared out of the blue, surprising everyone. “Mom, where have you been?” Your mom didn’t even bat an eyelash at you, literally ignoring you. Rude, you pouted.

“Boys, what do you want to drink?” asked the guy without any mask. Your mom turned to you, “Honey, please do take their order. I’ll go and have a talk with Seongchan, okay?“ Sighing in defeat, you just nodded to her request and waited for their orders. Seungchan and your mom went to take a sit beside the windows, and started talking about something really important.

"Uhm, sorry about that. I’m [y/n] and I’ll be the one who’s going to take and make your orders. So, may I take your orders?”

There were seven of them and the guy with broad shoulders went first. Before he said his orders, he removed his face masks, revealing an oh-so-gorgeous face. “I’ll have an iced Americano venti.” Nodding your head as you tapped on the screen, noting down his order. “Alright.” He flashed you a big smile and stepped aside so that the others could tell you their orders. Wait a minute, tapping your lower bottom, you just realized something. Isn’t that Wonho from Monsta X?! you suddenly gasped at the thought.

The other guys turned their gazes at you which made you flash them an awkward smile. “U-uh, I just realized something hehe… A-anyways, who’s next?” The guys started to tell you their order one by one. You continued to gladly took their orders. The last person to order was Changkyun. Okay, [y/n], you got this. Calm your tits and get his order.

“I’ll have an iced caramel macchiato, please.”  carefully noting his order down, you totaled everything and smiled. “I’ll take that your manager’s gonna pay, right?” all of them chuckled, looking back at their manager who’s currently talking to your mom.

“Okay, so I’ll go ahead and make your drinks. Please do take a seat anywhere you guys are comfortable with. Have a nice day.” before you left, you flashed them a smile and grabbed the list of their orders. You started making their drinks as soon as you prepared their clear tumblers. Being around the café for more than two months, making these drinks were nothing for you. You could even make them with your eyes closed.

While you were making the drink, little did you know that the boys have been talking about you. “She’s really pretty.” Wonho blurted out, arms crossed while he was busy eyeballing you out. The area where you make the drinks is open for the costumers to see.

I agree.” Kihyun admitted, also checking you out. You were wearing a white buttoned up blouse, which really fit, and a pair of black ripped skinny jeans. Since your mom does not allow you to make the drinks without any apron around your waist, its a must that you wear one.

With your sleeves fold up to your elbows, the apron was tightly wrapped around your waist, making a big emphasis on your curves. The boys continued to talk about you.

A crazy idea suddenly popped out from Hyunwon’s poetic mind. He pulled out their dslr and took candid photos of you. Man, he was good at taking photos. “Changkyun, look.” Changkyun was quite impressed by Hyungwon’s skills but he was more impressed at how beautiful you looked despite having to concentrate on making those drinks.

Your brown locks slowly sliding off your ears, your eyes focused on the drinks as you bit your lips in concentration. Damn, Changkyun thought. The members decided to talk about other things, Changkyun continued to watch you.

After what seemed like forever, you finally finished making the drink. Plopping every single drink on a tray, you carefully carried the tray towards their table. Jooheon noticing you, he nudged his hyungs and smiled.

“Here are your orders. Iced Americano venti for Wonho-sshi,………” you distributed their drinks to every single member. “and last, but not the least, iced caramel macchiato for Changkyun.” handing Changkyun his drink, locking eyes with him.

“How did you know our names, by the way?” Minhyuk asked you, making you transfer your gaze to him. “I actually realized that you guys are monsta x. I’m actuallly a fan of your group so yeah.” you couldn’t but feel embarrassed as they looked at you with such fascination.

Really?” Wonho didn’t know if he heard it right or something but he needed you to confirm it once more. “Yeah, I’m actually going to one of your fansign event tomorrow.” everyone couldn’t believe it but they wow-ed in unison, making you giggle at their cuteness.

You were about to leave when Jooheon pleaded you to talk for them for awhile, telling you that you’re not disturbing them, your presence is greatly appreciated and many more. It wouldn’t hurt to mingle with them. Shownu pulled out a chair for you, thanking him in the process.

You’re seated in between Hyungwon and Shownu while Wonho, Changkyun, Jooheon, Minhyuk and Kihyun were sitting in front of you. The boys asked you tons of questions about you, as they were trying to get to know you better. You told them that you studied in Boston for five years, your age, your ideal type and so on and so forth. The café was filled with laughter, and all kinds of noise.

You also asked them questions and they also answered it honestly. Every single one of you enjoyed the conversation you guys were having. “If you were going to choose between us, who would you choose?” Kihyun was not making you squirm on your seat with his stare.

“U-uh…”  beads of sweat started to form on your forehead as you were already starting to feel nervous. “I bet she’s going to choose me.” “You wish.” The boys were throwing savage words at each other, which they didn’t really take it seriously.

“I would choose–” before you could even finish talking, your mom spoke up. “Sorry to interrupt, boys, but can I borrow [y/n] for a second?” the boys didn’t think twice as they gave my mom an okay sign.

“What is it?” leaving the table with your mom, she turned to you once you were meters away from them. “Can you carry those bags of coffee beans back at the storage room?” you were already used to carrying those kind of stuff.

“Yeah, sure.” “Thanks, honey.” She gave you a quick peck on the cheeks and patted your head. She went back to Seongchan and continued their conversation. You grabbed a tie from your pocket and pulled your hair up in to a ponytail. Warming up your muscles, you walked towards the stacked bags and grabbed the topmost bag.

The sacks weigh about fifteen kilograms as it was equally divided to so that it would be easy for the employees to carry. Swinging the bag of coffee beans to your shoulders, you groaned as you almost lost your balance and you just realized that you’re wearing white.

“Mom, my blouse is going to be dirty after this.” you exclaimed. Your mom just looked at you and mouthed a, don’t worry. Sighing, you just dealt with and did what was asked of you. You continued to bring the bags of coffee beans to the storage room for about twenty minutes.

Little did you know that Changkyun wanted to help you out so badly but your mom told them that you can handle it. As soon as you finished, a hand was offering you an iced caramel macchiato. The owner of the hand was no other than, Changkyun.

When you were busy carrying all those bags of coffee beans, he ordered an iced caramel macchiato for you. “Here, drink up. I know that carrying all those stuff was tiring.” You sighed, quite thankful for his kind gesture. “Thanks.” even though you were tired, you still flashed him a sincere smile.

Changkyun’s cheeks showed a tint of red, taken aback by your cuteness. “Hey, [y/n]…” you looked up to him while sipping on your iced macchiato. “Mmmm?” your round, twinkling eyes made his heart beat really fast. “I-I was wondering if… I could ask for your number?”

Cute. You chuckled, “Sure.” “It’s okay if you don’t want to– wait, really?” Changkyun paused, trying his best to decipher what you just said. “Yeah.”

Before you know it, he starts to frantically search for his phone. Once he found it, he offered it to you and you typed in your number. “There.” Changkyun couldn’t help but feel flustered. “T-thank you.”

“No biggie, it’s just my number.” well, it was not just your number but it was something that could help Changkyun out. “Uhm, [y/n]..”


“Do you want to hang out sometime? Grab some coffee or something?”

“Hmm…. sure, I’d love too.”

“R-really? When do you want to hang out?”

“Just text me if you’re free.”

“O-okay, I can’t wait to hang out with you sometime.”

“Me too.”

“It’ll be a start of something between us.”

His weight is heavy against you, and he smells so good, his hair tickling your nose. A strange flare of affection—of want—licks its way back up your vertebrae, reminds you of the frigid intensity, the territorial stance he took. To protect you. To defend you.Because he was worried, because he saw even the smallest possibility of you slippingaway and he hated it.

Of Cappuccinos, Super Heroes and American Presidents

This started as a prompt idea and headcanon conversation that eventually merged together. Thank you so much to Grace,) without whom I would have never written this. I hope you enjoy it! (read on

The first time Lily visits that particular Starbucks it’s pouring outside. The traffic is absolutely insane and she’s there’s no way she’s going to get to her lecture on time. She’s already a bit late anyway, and so she figures going inside for a cup of coffee couldn’t possibly do any harm.

As soon as Lily steps foot into the shop, the first thing she notices is her barista. James, it says on the name tag. It’s not that he’s particularly attractive or anything, it’s just that he’s got a stupid smirk on his face and she would rather like to wipe it off. If she’s being completely honest, it’s actually kind of offensive. How dare he give her that smile, does he actually think she’s going to fall for that? Psssssht. It’s not like it’s endearing or anything.

Lily waits patiently in line and, when the time comes for her to order her cappuccino, she does the only thing any rational woman such as herself would do in her situation; she gives him a fake name. She doesn’t miss the way the corners of his lips tug upwards when he finally shouts “Tall cappuccino for Wonderwoman!”

The plan had been to get in, get coffee, get out and never return. Of course, Lily’s life never goes as planned. The truth is, her workload this semester is stupidly intense and she needs all the caffeine she can possibly get. The coffee shop’s fortunate location is the absolute number one reason she keeps going back, she tells herself. It’s definitely not the fact that he keeps smiling at her like she’s God’s gift to mankind.

She could just go to the other café down the street, but it would be incredibly stupid to avoid such a nice coffee shop just to prove a point to no one but herself. Lily settles on simply ignoring the annoying git, and it would have worked too, except every time she has some spare time it’s his bleeding shift. Of course.

The next time she goes there, her order consists of a venti Americano and she tells him her name is Batman. This time, there’s another boy with James behind the bar. His name is Sirius but she nicknames him ‘sleek hair dude’ and wonders if his hair is actually real. She suspects he and James are probably a little gay for each other, because she’s never seen two other best friends smile like so much at each other.

Sometimes, when the shop is a little emptier James will come out of the bar with a new serving of the coffee she loves so much, and more often than not it’s on the house and the refill would be nice if it didn’t always come with a smirk attached to it.

After he goes back to his rightful place, Lily is left to wonder; is he flirting with her? She doesn’t want him to be but God, she just wants to know already.

“James is a dumb name anyway”, she rants to her friends. “His neck is stupidly long, he looks like a giraffe. Besides hes not that tall.” Lily much prefers short blokes anyway. Shorter guys are more down-to-earth.

“Plus,” she continues, “he always has two more of his friends around. One is actually quite decent, but the other? Who does that Peter guy things he his, always hogging all the cheesecake to himself? Maybe I want cheesecake too.”

“Lily,” her best friend, Mary, starts, “you’re allergic to dairy.”

“That’s not the point.” Lily shoots back. That was not the point. “I don’t like them one bit.”

This one time, she’s taking a walk with Mary and out of the blue, the not-so-subtle brunette decides she is craving caffeine like no other. They enter the stupid Starbucks, much to Lily’s dismay. Not fifteen minutes have passed and Mary’s already developed one hundred theories about James and the fact that he is, apparently, flirting with her.

“He’s hot, you should go for it.”

“He is most certainly not! He is not cute at all, Mary.” Except he is. He is sort of cute, in all of his gangly glory. But Lily has to save face, and so she asks, “Have you even looked at his hair?”

“It looks tousled.”

“It looks dumb.”

She goes back the next week only to find his phone number scribbled in her coffee cup. Lily isn’t flattered at all because honestly the nerve of some people. After that, though, she actually takes a proper look at what he wrote and just begins to laugh hysterically and keeps doing so for the next tem minutes. She had told him her name was Michelle, and James, like the enormous dork he was, asked her to be the first lady to his Obama.

It’s eleven pm and Lily is sitting on her couch, deciding if she should text him or not. It’s sort of late, maybe he’s sleeping? After all, he does start working quite early. She wonders just when did she memorise his schedule.

But because it is so late, Mary isn’t around to smile knowingly at her. She is completely alone in her bedroom, and for once, Lily doesn’t feel like she has to pretend.

Michelle Obama reporting to duty.

The response is almost immediate.

hi michelle

is michelle actually your name

Of course James would be a double texter.

Are you too good for capital letters? Or punctuation for that matter?

ha ha you’re hilarious

Oh yes. And pretty too.

If Mary were there, she’d accuse her of flirting.


v v pretty

Shouldn’t you be sleeping?

yes but i think you’ll find i don’t always do what i should

You rebel. Go to sleep, James.

only if you promise to come by the shop tomorrow

Alright. Goodnight.

you too michelle

She locks her phone and turns around, nuzzling her face in her pillow. For some reason though, she doesn’t seem to be able to fall asleep. Something feels off, unfinished. She picks up her phone again and stares at the screen. After a few moments of cautious deliberation, she starts typing.

Call me Lily.
