Smug the Magic Dragon is a story written by Domashita Romero (地下ロメロ). It ran in Issue 45 and can be read on LJ, and is mirrored at


From the author: "It’s your standard ‘meet the cute barista’ story, only the barista is wearing a dragon outfit and does stage magic. I thought my inspiration on this one would be more obvious, but apparently not everyone knows about Piff the Magic Dragon! Google him and then read this story."

From "Adam's cute new barista Smug is also a quirky magician. He also claims to be a dragon."

From "a guy hooks up with a cute barista hiding a couple of secrets up his sleeve, the least of which is his fondness for card tricks and late-night magic performances"

It was such a rotten cliche, to be smitten with the cute boy behind the counter at the coffee shop, but, well, cliches had to start somewhere. At least in Adam's defense, he had only been caught in deep smit for the three minutes he'd been waiting in line. The boy in question had soft eyes and long lashes and a scruffy chin and smirky lips and Adam was just fine with waiting as long as possible while he got practice at staring while pretending not to stare.

When it was Adam's time to come up to the counter, though, he saw the barista's nametag read 'Smug.' Well, at least he was properly labeled.
