All That is Gold Does Not Glitter


Still no on the fun-dies (Molly + Carl)

bowtiedbaker:

Hmhm, I guess I get a little overwhelmed sometimes. It wouldn’t be so bad if someone would just answer my flier already— but I guess no one’s in the need of a job just now. Hmhm♪ [Shrugs, giggling briefly as he looks over her outfit again with raised eyebrows.] I don’t think more skin makes someone look taller, unfortunately— or else I’d’ve been showing more for a long time.♪

[Nibbles at the muffin she offers him, eyes moving upward in thought as he seems to sample it - and nodding after a few seconds of chewing.] H♪ It’s not so bad! I think you’re missing something, but I can’t quite put my finger on it. Hmm—… I guess, if you want to eat them that way, though— [Chews on another bite, watching her dismember her own with a slightly judgmental look before giggling and losing interest in his judging.]

Goodness, I’m not to picky. I tasted everything I ever had to make. I learned a— aha, a lot of new drinks while I was at the bar!♪ [Pauses with the muffin against his mouth, thinking for a few seconds.] If you have bourbon, lemon, and honey— I’ve been a little fond of gold rushes♥ Hmhm♪ Otherwise anything apple-y or honey-y will do me fine.♪

Oh yeah? [Frowns slightly, her cat coming out of nowhere to attack her foot, Molly completely ignoring it] You know Carl, once I harvest my planted crops, my chores are going to be reduced to a quarter of the work. I can always help you if you’d like until you hire someone.

[Grins wickedly, looking him over in a way that might suggest she’s imagining him showing more skin] Who knows, less might be a good look for you [Quirks her brows]

[Tilts her head side to side, shrugging as she takes a bite of the muffin top] What do you usually put in your muffins then?

[Taking a bigger bite, she chews slowly, listening to what he says before giving him a few, wordless nods. She sets the half eaten muffin top on her kitchen table, before moving to her pantry] Of course I have bourbon, Carl, whiskeys are my favorite. [Pulls a few things out from in the pantry and setting them down before moving to one of her cupboards and opening it and pulling out a bottle of bourbon. She sets to work making the drinks] So appol-y and honey-y [purses her lips at the words before shrugging] I could make you a honey bourbon toddy after this if you think you’d like it? It’s honey-y and appol-y. I’ve got some appol cider too if you’d like. [Hands him a glass, before joining him again with one of her own]

ten years have got behind you.
No one told you when to run,

Still no on the fun-dies (Molly + Carl)

[Sighs, turning his attention away with a pout.] I guess… Anything could be turned into a romantic holiday if you want it to, though. [Huffs again, taking another sip of his coffee.] I think I’m getting to be a bit jealous, being that I meet so many couples in my new line of work. You don’t see as many couples coming into a bar as you do in a cafe.♪ [Giggles to himself.]

It’s not so bad, though— I make really most of my money during the breakfast and lunch times!♪ I can’t tell you how many people come in from the boats before work— [Sighs, smiling fondly as he presses the coffee back to his lips in thought.] It’s the best time to work usually! But not when you’re super tired from the night before, hmhm.

[Sips his coffee again, studying her outfit again in full with a high raise of his eyebrows.] Hmhm, well— you’re showing enough leg that I’m sure more people noticed than you realize.♪ [Giggles at her returned compliment, waving it off and following her to the kitchen instead.] I feel like a mess! I don’t know if I can take your compliments right now, sweetie♪ But I’ll take some of the muffins you’ve left whole—

[Purses his lips as he studies the basket appraisingly before picking one up to study it.] Hm—♪ Well, you’re not selling me on these if you’re only eating the tops. [Giggles, turning it in his hand.] If your whole muffin isn’t delicious enough to eat in one go, you should really try some of my recipes. [Nibbles at the edge of it.] Hmhm♥

That’s true, though it’s annoying I guess. Almost as annoying as being single on Valentine’s Day. [Purses her lips] Oh yeah? Well that makes sense; cafe’s have a better atmosphere for a date than bars do. It’s less noisy and not scummy.

[Smiles] Gosh, I can imagine you do! You don’t get overwhelmed do you? [Tucks a lock of hair behind her ear] Mm- I hate working when I didn’t get a good sleep, but I take a nap in the afternoons anyways so I guess it’s not too bad.

[Sticks a leg out, looking down at it] I thought it might make me look taller. I debated on a pair of shear stockings but my only pair had a hole in them.

[Chuckles] You’ll take my muffins and my compliments, they come hand in hand.

[Pouts, picking up another muffin] I didn’t mean they were bad! Though in sure your recipes are a lot better than mine. [Sets the basket down, before ripping the muffin too off] That’s just how I eat mine is all; I like the tops better cause they’re smoother! [Takes a bite]

So! What kind of drinks are you in the mood for anyway?

bowtiedbaker:

Hf, I didn’t take that long. Did I? [Blinks, pulling back his sleeve to check his watch.] … okay, maybe I was a little longer than I thought. Hmhm. It really was too many couples up there, though— more than I expected. Isn’t this supposed to be a mournful holiday? Hm. Can you blame me for going, though? I thought I’d at least give the festival a look— and get something to drink. [Holds up the coffee for show, taking another sip as he steps into the house, setting his coat and bag into one of her chairs as if he might already be ready to make his home here.]

Hmhm, good— I wasn’t planning to stay three months, at least!♪ But a night wouldn’t hurt. Oh! [Huffs exaggeratedly.] I still have to be in for work tomorrow, though— so that’s a thing. [Shrugs, taking another sip of the coffee - looking her over and raising a brow at her muffin top.] You look nice, though— goodness, don’t know how you would keep warm on a night like this, though. [Nods his chin to the baked sweet in her hand.] So, did you make the whole muffins or just muffin tops, sweetie? I could really go for either right about now if you made a lot.♪

[Shrugs, grinning] What matters is you’re here now, no? [Shutting the door behind him, she takes another bite and nods.] I’m sure people were mourning and all, but maybe it’s just evolved into one of those “yeah it’s sad but we could also make it romantic” kind of thing…if that makes sense? [Scratches her nose, shrugging again]

[She wrinkles her nose] Really?? Well-I have to work too, but it sucks you can’t like, you know, just not be in for work.

[Giggles, looking down at her outfit as though she may have forgotten exactly what she was wearing] Well thank you! At lease someone thought it was. And of course you look quite charming if I may say so ❤️ [Finishing the rest of her muffin top, she shakes her head, before beckoning for him to follow her into the kitchen] Whole muffins! I just like to rip the tops off and eat those first. They’re the best. [Picks up the basket she has them in and holds it out to him]


bowtiedbaker asked: "[Shows up an hour and fifteen minutes late with coffee. It takes him a few seconds to have to shuffle between the hand holding his coat and the hand holding his coffee before managing to knock and calling in in what is presumably a loud whisper (just in case it was the wrong house).] Molly? Hello?"

[In the time it took Carl to arrive at Molly’s house, she had managed to get herself dressed and bake a batch of blueberry muffins she had been craving since getting out of bed. As her teeth sink in to the muffin top she had ripped from the bottom, her head turns towards the door as she hears a knock and a voice. Makes her way to the door, muffin top still in her mouth and pulls it open, a muffled ‘Carrrrrlllllllll’ sounding from her before taking a bite, chewing and swallowing]

It’s about time you got here, you didn’t get lost did you?

[Blinks, sighing some relief (and some disappointment) at the sight of Molly already eating a muffin.] You baked without me? Goodness.

[Huffs, but smiles immediately after and steps inside, going to hug her in the same motion.] Well, I did get a little lost. You didn’t tell me you lived this far out, or else I might’ve worn better shoes. Goodness, I went all the way out to the river and watched the festivities there first, though— hmhm.

[Sips his coffee, lifting his coat from his shoulder and the small bag that was hidden under it.] How’s your night been, sweetie? [Shows the bag he’s carried, batting his eyelashes at her hopefully.] Can I stay the night or should I only stay for a little while?♪

<p>[Wrinkles her nose] I was hungry and you took forever. Besides, there’s plenty more to bake in my kitchen. [Giggles, moving in to hug him as well and careful not to get any muffin crumbs on him]</p> <p>Well to be honest with you, I always forget how far out I am. It’s rather quiet though, so I guess that’s always a plus.</p> <p>[Pulling back, she nods] Mm I was up there for a bit but it seemed more like uh- a couples thing…at least from what I saw anyways. [Steps aside from the door to let him in, taking another bite of her muffin top. She chews slowly, glancing at the bag before giving him a smile and swallowing] Of course you can stay! Sprites, you could show up to my doorstep unannounced and tell me you’re staying for three months and I wouldn’t bat an eye.

With her arms crossed over her body, Molly watches as the festival starts, the people flocking in along the bank of the river. She glances to the ground, digging the heel of her boot into it to relieve some of her mild boredom, before letting out a sigh.

You Are The Weirdest Person I Know [Molly/Candace]

un-spooling:

 

[Wow.] 

[She blinks at this explanation - feeling a little silly for having mixed this information up.] Oh— oh. Right. I knew that. [She ducks her head slightly, looking around - her eyes landing on the cat again, as awkward people are won’t to do when interacting with cats is far easier than interacting with people.]

That— that makes sense, yeah— but I don’t think I’d know the difference with that, either.. all that stuff makes me dizzy, even the really weak stuff..

[♥]

[Purshing herself out of her seat, she moves over to her cupboard, pulling out a round, metal tin.] Really? Well, alcohol’s not for everyone. [Takes a seat, pulling the lid off and setting the tin in the middle of the table full of different kinds of cookies. She takes one out, nodding her head for Candace to have some as well if she pleases] If it makes you dizzy, you’d be better of drinking a glass of water with your drink. Maybe snack on some popcorn or a few dinner rolls as well. It’ll still hit you but not as hard.
