Things have changed in the nearly two years since Shannon Shepard left her Alliance Roasting location to assist another. When she comes back, she finds new employees, new frustrations, new promotions, and new animosities. With all this comes a new strain between her and Kaidan Alenko, her former assistant manager. But in the fast world of customer service, Shepard can’t stop. She can just try to navigate the changes, and bring her friends back together before anyone leaves for good.
I’m so pleased and relieved to FINALLY announce the posting of WE PROUDLY SERVE!!!! The long awaited (and long promised) Shenko coffee shop AU based off the true livings of your humble author as a bookstore cafe supervisor. I’ve been wanting to write this for a long while, and only now is the first chapter sufficient enough for me to share. In the time to come, there may be more ships, more characters, more everything, but for now, I want this little fic that could to get it’s start. It’s my first attempt at a multi-chapter fic in a VERY long time, so I’m hoping I can keep the motivation going to get more to y'all soon.
This fic partially mirrors the events of the game, and character are based off people I’ve served and worked with. At the end of each chapter, I’ll note which details are real life! Special shoutout to @biotictrash, who very kindly served as my beta, and will hopefully put up with my plot screaming long enough to help more, and @xandrasketches for the AMAZING cover art! I really hope you’ll like it!
Her first shift back starts in ten minutes, and Shannon can’t bring herself to go in.
