All your coffee are belong to Gabe!

Location: The Cravat
Time: N/A. (Though for all intents and purposes it is morning.)


This morning, as with many mornings, Gabe's first thought was one word. This one word was 'coffee.' He carefully extricated himself from his and Jeannot's bed, making sure not to wake his love as he did. He left the room quietly and went down the stairs, looking for any new room, hopefully one containing a coffee-maker and some grounds. As luck ((or possibly the BC's inherent MKCSR powers)) would have it, the first room he decided to explore was the kitchen, the coffee-maker on the counter like a gift from G-d. He only had to look through two cupboards before finding the coffee grounds and cups, and he set about making it, humming Chelsea Hotel #2 very loudly to himself. Once done, he sat upon the counter, impatiently watching it percolate.

"Hmm. A few cans, what appears to be some sort of packaged meat. . .milk. . .good heavens, this thing must be useful." Holmes put one slightly tentative hand into the fridge and moved a few things around. "I am not a cook, although I can deal with the very rudiments. And you both?"

"I'm not a chef or anything, but I can keep myself fed," Gabe replied, and took the plastic-bagged bread from Jeannot. "This is plastic, love," he said, smiling. "And not all plastic looks like this. Some is clear and bendable, but sometimes it's coloured and hard." He took one of the letters off the fridge, picking the 'J' especially, and pressed it into Jeannot's hand. "This is plastic as well. What the plastic looks like has to do with what chemicals are used to make it, mostly." He shrugged and undid the twistie on the plastic bag. "Toast, anyone?" he asked, feeling generous.

Jeannot turned the plastic letter over in his hand, marveling at it. He looked up at Gabe's question, puzzledly. "Toast?" he asked. "Do you mean-- oh, the bread, over a fire?" He smiled. "Please."

He turned to Holmes. "You can cook?" he asked, surprised. "Why?"

"Certainly, thank you," Holmes said. "And for Watson, if you don't mind. He'll want breakfast when he wakes up. I swear, the man eats like nothing I've ever seen. But this plastic -" He picked another letter off of the refridgerator, privately noting its magnetism. "Remarkable. What is its chemical composition?" Holmes being Holmes, it did not occur to him that Gabe probably wouldn't know.

((Sorry about that, didn't see your post.))

"I can cook," Holmes explained, "because I'm often forced to live alone for long periods of time, working on a client's case. I try to keep the more dangerous part of my business as far away from our - pardon, I mean from my home as possible."

"I haven't a clue what its chemical composition is," Gabe admitted, taking two slices of bread from the bag. "I honestly spent more time skipping Chem than I did attending the class." He placed the slices in the toaster on the counter and pressed them down. He fiddled with the knob, unsure of how to set it. He finally picked 'two,' as if it wasn't toasty enough he could always just put them in for longer. "Is there any butter in there?" he asked.

"I believe so - but what on earth is that? Some sort of heating device?" Holmes looked at the toaster as though it might burst into flames at any moment.

"Toaster," Gabe replied, simply. "It toasts. And give me the butter, would you?"

"It is from the future," Jeannot murmured to Holmes, awed. He peered underneath the toaster, expecting to find a small fire there. Not seeing the source of the heat, he looked up at Gabe, raising his eyebrows in puzzlement. "Is the fire somehow inside?" he guessed, bewildered.

((Aww. "It is from the future." For some reason this line is the cutest thing ever.))

"Not fire, no," Gabe said. "It's heated electrically." He tilted the toaster towards them so that they could see the inside, the orange-red heating mechanism and the slices of bread themselves. "And I'm too tired to explain electricity," he added. "Ask Holmes."

Holmes gingerly reached into the fridge for the butter and handed it to Gabe, still slightly distrustful of the new technology. "A toaster," he said, feigning confidence. "I see."

((Heh. *pets Jeannot* See, he's adorable. We knew it all along.))

Jeannot turned to Holmes expectantly. "Electricity," he repeated. "Do you know what it is, M. Holmes?"

Jan. 28th, 2007 07:00 am (UTC)
"Yes, but. . ." Holmes shook his head, not wanting to admit exactly how old fashioned he could be about some things. "I suppose I ought to wake Watson," he remarked, valiantly trying to change the subject. "If we let him sleep he'll do it until evening tomorrow."

The toast popped. It wasn't toasted at all, and Gabe pushed it back down rather angrily. "Wake him if you like," he told Holmes. "I suppose he'll be wanting some coffee as well?"

Jeannot jumped as the bread popped out of the toaster, startled by the sudden noise. He turned pink, embarrassed by his fright at such a little thing, and turned to inspect the rest of the cabinets and cupboards in the room to distract himself.

Gabe very politely pretended not to notice how Jeannot jumped as the toast popped. "Bel," he said, "can you get me four mugs, for coffee?" He paused and turned to Holmes. "Unless there's someone else lurking around or if someone else shall be joining us?"

Jan. 28th, 2007 07:15 pm (UTC)
"I should hope not," said Holmes, staring fixedly at the toast. He was just as alarmed as Jeannot, but making rather more of an effort not to show it. "I'll go upstairs and get him, then." He turned on his heel out the door, then popped his head back in to add wryly, "Once more unto the breach, dear friends."

Glad to be given something to do, Jeannot searched through the cupboards until he found the one with the dishes in it, and pulled out four coffee mugs. He carried them over to Gabe, setting the mugs carefully down next to the coffeemaker. That accomplished, Jeannot smiled and put an arm around Gabe's waist, pressing close to him. "Coffee," he remarked, shaking his head in wonder. "M. Holmes must be wealthy, if he can afford coffee, aimé."

Jan. 28th, 2007 08:04 pm (UTC)
"Coffee's not so expensive, really," Gabe replied. "At least not in my time. I mean, even I could afford it." He shrugged and kissed Jeannot's cheek before turning away to pour the coffee. "I don't, mind you," he added. "Free coffee is one of the perks of working at a coffee shop." He picked up the mug he has deemed as his (it had a fractal printed upon it) and took a sip. "It's good coffee," he said, offering the mug to Jeannot. "Strong."

From upstairs was the sound of someone throwing something - probably a shoe - at someone else. A door slammed, and Holmes trooped dejectedly back into the kitchen. "Our cause has been defeated, I fear."

Jan. 28th, 2007 08:21 pm (UTC)
Jeannot took the mug, enjoying the warmth in his hands, and sipped carefully. His eyes widened at the rich taste. "Oh," he breathed, rapturous. "This is much better than coffee in my time, aimé." Jeannot smiled and leaned up to kiss Gabe. "Another good thing about your time, I think," he murmured against Gabe's skin, absolutely content.

He glanced up at Holmes, a bit startled. "Oh, Dieu," he said softly. "Is Watson all right?" He hesitated and glanced at Gabe for a moment, glad that he and Gabe weren't fighting, as apparently Holmes and Watson were. "Do you think that he would talk to me, if he will not speak to you?" he asked Holmes, willing to go and see to his new friend.
simplysidhe
Jan. 28th, 2007 08:43 pm (UTC)
"Watson," said Holmes bitterly, "is fine. My dignity, however, is another matter. And yes, he may well talk to you." He sighed and leaned against the counter, then reached for a mug.

Jan. 28th, 2007 08:58 pm (UTC)
Gabe took the mug back from Jeannot, giving him another kiss as he did, still tasting the lingering coffee flavor in his mouth, and just shook his head at Holmes. "You weren't even up there for five minutes," he said, almost impressed. "What the hell did you say?"
simplysidhe
Jan. 28th, 2007 09:09 pm (UTC)
"I said good morning," Holmes reported, "and then he threw his left shoe at me." He poured himself some coffee, shaking his head. "He is excessively angry, although I don't know about precisely what." He had a fairly good idea, though, and that was only making him more miserable.

Jan. 28th, 2007 09:13 pm (UTC)
Jeannot shook his head, feeling guilty. "I will go and try to speak with him, then," he told the other two. He lingered for a moment, reluctant to leave Gabe's side, but did, in the end, manage to tear himself away from his love.

He climbed the stairs with a bit of trepidation, hoping that Watson wouldn't throw anything at him. Stopping in front of the closed door, he took a deep breath and knocked. "Watson?" he called softly. "It is Jeannot. May I come in?"
