August is a self-admitted pretentious hipster asshole with questionable knowledge about coffee. He develops a massive crush on his favorite café barista, who has a few tricks up their sleeve.
From fairyninjas.wordpress.com: "A cute, simple, and sweet gender-fluid romance."
I come to this coffeehouse every day -- or at least I try to -- and order the same double shot red-eye with room I do every day, because I'm a pretentious asshole. Most mornings, I see the same barista. It's gotten to the point where I don't even have to order, he just smiles at me and hands me the cup.
Double Shot Red-Eye With Room is unconnected to other stories or universes.
This is another one of those stories where I scrambled to finish it in time. Sigh.
The premise for this story is shamelessly pulled off a tumblr post I saw floating around close to a year ago. (I tried to find the post on my tumblr archive but was unable to find it! All the sadness.) I struggled for a long time, nearly a month, about whether or not I should reveal Cam's sex. How could I have them go out to dinner, back to Cam's place, and get the sexy on without letting on what Cam's packing in their pants?
Solution: Skip dinner, August gets a blowjob in the car.
I will not reveal Cam's sex here, and I highly doubt I ever will. While this is partially due to wanting to retain some air of mystery, it's mostly because I have no idea what it is.
As an aside, August tipping Cam because he read their name off their nametag is something that comes from me working way too much retail and having way too many people read off my name like it's gonna manipulate me or something.
