    Mabel, after Evie does something stupid: Do you ever look at your best friend who you've known your whole life, been through thick and thin, shared your whole life with them, and think, "I'd just love to fucking knock you out?"

    I was tagged by @abedsmessedupmeta

    1. Why did you choose your url?

    I had signed up for another social media and was actually trying to use an AIM username from high school, but it was taken.  I wanted to keep the star part and the daisy part, so I pivoted to combined stargazer lily with daisy.  And then it became a little bit of a pun and I liked it even more.  

    2. Any side blogs?

    There is one that I share with a couple other people, but none of us have used it in a couple years.  

    3. How long have you been on tumblr?

    I technically created my account in December 2013, I believe (after I had binged Doctor Who).  But i only used it sporadically.  That is until August 2015 when I had finished binging Agents of SHIELD seasons 1-2 and had so many feelings, I decided to definitely make it everyone else’s problem.  And well, no one has been able to drag me away since.  

    4. Do you have a queue tag?

    I do not, which is interesting considering 98% of my posts are queued.  

    5. Why did you start your blog in the first place?

    Because I couldn’t get enough Doctor x Rose and Pinterest was running out of things to show me, plus I noticed that most of them were from tumblr anyway, so I decided to go to the original source.

    6. Why did you choose your icon/pfp?

    I always has an actual daisy as my icon, until last year when I was all into The Rookie and decided I wanted a person icon.  So then @firstdegreefangirl made us matching icons.  She took one picture that had Melissa O’Neill (Lucy) and Alyssa Diaz (Angela) together, split it so we each had one, and then colored them to match each of our blogs specifically.  The tumblr version of a BFF necklace.  :D 7. Why did you choose your header?

    Because stars.  

    8. What’s your post with the most notes?

    Probably the screencap of a text conversation with my husband about when we were moving and I needed to pick out stuff for our new bathroom.  I tagged thebibliosphere in it, she reblogged it, and BAM hundreds of notes.  It’s up to over 900 notes now and still getting likes on a regular basis.  

    9. How many mutuals do you have?

    57, huh.

    10. How many followers do you have?

    651 as of writing this, but it fluctuates frequently

    11. How many people do you follow?

    164

    12. Have you ever made a shit post?

    duh.

    13. How often do you use tumblr a day?

    Am i ever not using it?

    14. Did you ever have a fight/argument with another blog?

    A couple of times, but nothing huge or long lasting, really.  Just a couple of disagreements on a single thread.  

    15. How do you feel about the ‘you need to reblog’ posts?

    The guilt tripping “you have to reblog this or you’re heartless!” posts?  They can sit on a cactus.  Frigging bite me.  

    16. Do you like tag games?

    I do!  Sometimes it takes me awhile to get to them, but I try to always do them (unless I’m getting tagged a second or third time after I did it the day before)

    17. Do you like ask games?

    I doooooo!  

    18. Which of your mutuals do you think is tumblr famous?

    Depends on what you mean by famous.  I definitely have a few who are well known in our respective fandoms.  

    19. Do you have a crush on a mutual?

    romantic?  Not so much.  Platonic?  hell yeah.

    20. Tags!

    All's Fair in Love and Cake: Chapter 1

    I hate writing first chapters, but here we are! Finally finished! I'm planning to get one chapter out a week. Obviously, that depends on how everything pans out health-wise in the next week or so.

    Also, sorry for any misuse in French. These are phrases I've heard either through talking with French friends or at work years ago. My level of speaking skills is still pretty low so some phrases might be out of context. 😅

    Pairing: Marcus Pike x Reader (can be read as gender-neutral in this chapter, but later chapters will be more 'female' based)
    Words: 2.4k
    Genre: fluff, romantic comedy
    Warnings: swearing, heavily mentions food and cake, mentions of marriage and weddings.
    Summary: A cake theft is threatening to ruin an old friend's reputation. On top of that, a pair of old lovers pop back into the picture and somehow you find yourself faking an engagement to your colleague, Marcus. Nothing could go wrong, right?

    If someone had told you last month you’d be stood in the middle of a bridal shop with Marcus Pike, you would have laughed in their face. You might have also broken down crying too, but that was a whole other story.

    Giving credit where credit was due, Liv had an amazing shop. Three floors, all open plan with high ceilings and an expensive chandelier that costs more than your monthly rent that dangled above the fancy stairwell.

    And there was just so much white. Everywhere. White marble floors. White couches. White roses in white and gold vases lined the white painted walls. Much to your surprise, the least white thing in the store was the dresses.

    Of course, there were rails upon rails of different shades of white gowns, but you were starstruck by the rainbow selection kept at the back of the second floor, a row of brightly coloured silk and lace organised perfectly to form a rainbow.

    Liv disappeared through the double doors, giving you strict instructions to stay put while she talked to the kitchen staff.

    And, so, you were left unattended amongst a bunch of pretty and expensive dresses. It would be a crime not to snoop around a little!

    You never really thought about wedding dresses. Not out of disinterest, it was all Liv ever talked about and you were happy to listen as she flicked through the latest collection she had her eyes on.

    You just never thought you would be the type to get married. Or find someone who was willing to even try. Especially after what happened last time.

    You really didn’t want to be thinking about last time.

    Snooping was a good distraction, skimming through the rainbow dresses before moving across the room to the more traditional styles. The various shades of white and beige blended together, your hand stopping on a pretty ivory gown with a low-cut top and puffy bottom, Liv’s voice chirping in the back of your head giving you the sales pitch of a lifetime.

    “This one is a tea length gown with handcrafted embroidered detailing along the body and skirt, giving it a vintage inspired look that is very in right now. The light fabric makes it perfect for this spring weather. It’s easy to style, which you would like, plus it makes you look like royalty.”

    You had to agree with your friend’s imaginary voice, it was a dress worthy of royalty. Until you flipped over the price tag and your heart near jumped out of your throat.

    ‘We’re in a wedding store.’ Marcus leaned over with a chuckle, sounding nowhere near as shocked by the six digits slapped on the garment, ‘Everything is overpriced. Not sure you can afford that one.’

    ‘You would know.’ You quipped back, ‘How many times have you been married again?’

    A bit harsh? Maybe.

    But you caught the playful roll of his eyes, hip bumping into your side suggesting he at least found some humour in your crude joke.

    Marcus turned back to the painting he had been looking at, arms crossing his chest, and shit was he getting defensive?

    Lips pursed, nose winked, his head tilted to the left like a puppy trying to act cute waiting for a treat and you couldn't tell if he was just really into analysing the painting of a...hyperrealistic black and white rose or masking the pain of the shitty joke.

    'She didn't steal it, did she?'

    Luckily, his smile came back, putting your mind somewhat at ease, 'Not that I can tell.'

    Liv popped her head back through the double doors, ‘He’s ready to see you.’

    The two of you followed her through another hallway, thankfully not white this time, but just as frilly with large bunches of flowers and more expensive paintings framing the walls.

    ‘Just to warn you, he’s not in the best mood right now.’

    Not the best start.

    ‘I’m sure we’ll survive.’ You joked trying to ease some of the tension that was gathering in the air, ‘As long as nothing rotten is thrown in my direction, I’m good.’

    The shock on Marcus's face was priceless, ‘That’s happened before?’

    ‘Once or twice.’ You shrugged like it wasn’t a big deal.

    Liv laughed as she pushed open the double doors.

    The kitchen was exactly how you remembered it from the last time you visited. Shiny, stainless steel worktops spanning around the whole room with another giant island of similar benches in the middle. A mixer ran off in the corner, omitted a sweet vanilla smell that had your mouth watering.

    You were home.

    ‘Where’s the uniform?’ A voice boomed across the room, soon followed by an elderly man dressed head to toe in an all-white chef’s uniform walked out of the fridge. His frown and dark facial hair matched perfectly with the cold nature of the room, ‘I was expecting uniforms. Or badges.’

    ‘Always nice to see you too, Andre.’ You snarked back, biting back a laugh at the way he grunted, slapping down a ball of fondant onto the metal workstation with such vigour it made Marcus jump, ‘I’m doing a favour for Liv.’

    Liv nodded frantically, voice so shaky she stumbled over her words, ‘I didn’t want the store getting in the news for trouble.’

    ‘So, no uniforms or badges.’ You gestured to you and Marcus.

    The elderly man let out a huffed response, on the move as he continued muttering to himself. All eyes were trained on him as he shuffled around the kitchen, pulling at a draw aggressively and rummaging around until he presented a large wooden rolling pin

    Andre turned, his weapon of choice directed in Marcus’s direction, ‘And him?’

    Wide-eyed and caught in the headlights of a grumpy old French baker, Marcus faulters.

    ‘This is Special Agent Pike. He works for the arts division. He’s doing me a favour.’

    ‘Arts division.’ Andre scoffed. ‘I do not need arts division. I need answers. Someone is stealing my cakes. My work.’

    ‘And this is why we’re here, but my division works more with USFDA. Stolen cakes aren’t really my territory.’ You bumped your hip into Marcus’s leg, earning enough attention for him to snap back from the shock, ‘Agent Pike, on the other hand, knows a lot about priceless works of art.’

    ‘Oh, yeah.’ Marcus nodded, deciding now would be a great time to jump in, ‘Yeah. I’ve seen photos. Your cakes are truly beautiful. The best I’ve ever seen!’

    That was enough to draw a smile out of Andre, lowering the pin with a chuckle. Marcus could finally breathe again.

    Nothing like buttering up an old man with flattery to get him on your sweet side, ‘I make cakes for royalty, you know?’

    ‘As you like to tell everyone.’ Liv joked with fondness, ‘But we need to move things on. These two are very busy people.’

    Andre waved his hand in dismissal as he shuffled back to his station, ‘Chut! What could be more important than this?’

    ‘I have six restaurants under investigation that I need to visit today.’ You shifted a little closer, voice a little lower as you said, ‘One of them being O’Neil’s.’

    That caught his attention. The old man slowly glanced up in your direction, that soft sparkle in his eyes turning to something more murderous.

    ‘Espece de merde!’ the metallic slap of fondant against the bench rang out through the room, ‘I knew that bastard was up to something.’

    The fondant was now a perfectly flat circle which he attacked with just as much anger. It was somewhat amusing. You had never seen a man slice out such flawless delicate curves with such rage.

    ‘Here is what you need to know; someone has been stealing my cakes. They remake them and put them to sell on the internet. People have been giving them bad reviews. They think it’s me and…’ tears clouded Andre’s eyes, a thickness in the back of his throat clogging the words but he quickly pushed all that down ‘...I would never make such low quality.’

    Andre grabbed the rolling pin, his wrinkled hands shook with each hard hit. Marcus honed in on the switch of the knife, each swipe ending with a scrape of metal on metal as Andre drew the blade back towards himself.

    He swallowed thickly before asking, ‘And you think O’Neil is behind this?’

    ‘O’Neil is a piece of shit who cannot tell a crème fouetté from a crème pâtissière.’ Spite dripped from his words, the knife clattering to the bench. Ever so carefully, Andre picked up the thin ribbons of fondant and began sculpting, ‘Of fucking course it is not him.’

    ‘Is there anyone else it could be?’ You leaned in to get a better look, watching in amazement as he layered the pieces of sugary paste, twisting them here and there into an intricate pattern, ‘Anyone new working here?’

    ‘There is a new boy. He brings in the flowers. Other than that, I do not know.’

    ‘You mean Liam?’ Liv asked, ‘He’s only been working here three weeks. This cake theft has been going on for months.’

    Marcus shrugged. ‘There’s no harm in asking him. We don’t have much else to go off.’

    Liv nodded and shifted from one foot to another nervously. She had been acting off all week. Barely sleeping. Barely eating. The business was her baby, and now that it was under threat, she didn’t know what to do.

    You took her hand from across the table and she looked up at you with tears swimming in her bright eyes, ‘We’ll figure this out.’

    She flashed you a watery smile, doing all she could not to break down right on the spot.

    ‘Voilà!’ Andre held up the sweet pink rose with gentle hands, his new prized possession.

    Softly, he placed it into the palm of your hand. It looked so real, as if he had picked up one of the roses from outside the shop and dusted it with icing sugar.

    You opened your mouth to thank him, but he held up a finger, telling you to wait before shuffling back into the walk-in fridge. Andre reappeared moments later with a large white box decorated with an elaborate bow, ‘Incentive. For your work.’

    You raised an eyebrow, ‘Are you bribing FBI agents, Andre?’

    He pushed the box closer with a smile, ‘Piss off! Be good. Find my cakes.’

    There was no way in hell he was going to take no for an answer. Not that you were ever going to turn down free cake.

    You took the box, carefully placing the rose inside, asking Liv to send you an email with all possible suspects.

    'Do you really think you can catch him?' Liv asked while showing you and Marcus out. She kept her voice low, the shop was already starting to get busy for the day, 'I know this isn't really your department.'

    'How hard can it be? World-renowned baker gets his work stolen, Pie deals with this kind of stuff all the time.' You could hear the eye roll from the agent behind you, 'We'll catch him. Search into a few of these sites, nothing more than a few questions and some deep web shenanigans.'

    For the first time in weeks, Liv was something other than a purely anxious mess, 'Thank you again, both of you.'

    You said your goodbyes just as a larger group bustled into the shop, being boisterously loud for seven in the morning and you did not envy your friend one bit as you and Marcus made a quick exit.

    There was nothing more beautiful than DC in the spring. Tree and flowers were beginning to show colour again. The few people you caught passing by appeared to be somewhat happy.

    Everything just looked less depressing, for a better word.

    It was still early morning, far too early to head to HQ without raising suspicion from your supervisors, the pinky-orange sun still hanging low in the sky.

    ‘Is O’Neil’s really under investigation?’

    Marcus had asked once you had settled in a local park. For the first time in months, it was warm enough to sit outside. Although, the bench was still slightly wet from the weeks of showers DC had been subjected to, making your jeans cling to your thighs uncomfortably. But the smell of rain and damp grass was nice, so was the light breeze that rustled through the newly budding blossom trees.

    ‘What? Oh, fuck no! Dude’s held a clean record since he opened five years ago. I just needed Andre to speak, knew he had beef with O’Neil. Voilà!’

    ‘You’re horrible.’ He choked on a laugh, brow raising when he saw you trying to unknot the bow securing the deliciousness out of your reach, ‘Are you really going to eat those?’

    ‘Yeah, why not?’

    ‘I don’t know. It’s just, don’t you guys in the food department get poisoning from these things?’

    You eyed him a moment. Did he really think you to be that stupid? That after years of training, you would willing eat something without a care in the world? And it wasn’t like Andre was a total stranger with some vendetta on your head.

    But then it hit you. This was nothing to do with you, ‘Oh my god, you’re one of those types.’

    ‘What types?’

    ‘I know you were a goodie-goodie please everyone types, Agent Pike. Didn’t know you were this by the book.’

    ‘It just seems wrong taking a bribe from an old man.’

    ‘You’ve never taken a bribe before?’ You waited for a response, but nothing. The most you got out of him was a sheepish glance and a flattening of his lips as he shuffled awkwardly, ‘Seriously? Never!’

    ‘I mean, I have. Just, you know?’

    ‘You scared the mean old man is going to come after you with a rolling pin?’

    ‘I’m not scared of him. He’s like sixty. I could outrun him.’

    ‘Eighty-four.’ You pulled the ribbon in the most dramatic manner. Flicking the lid, you were greeted with the most delightful smell; six samples of cake by one of the world’s best bakers.

    You picked up a slice, going for your favourite four-tier Belgian truffle chocolate with raspberry chocolate ganache, the gold leaf finish glistened in the early morning sun.

    You were so ready to take a bite, only to catch Marcus starting down at you with wide eyes. Cake slice halfway to your mouth, you reaffirmed him before shoveling in the glorious chocolaty goodness. ‘Andre is eighty-four years old. He will outrun you and he will beat you with that rolling pin of his.’

    Marcus stared at you, mouth parted in shock.

    You offered him the slice of cake, ‘You want some?’

    ‘I’m good.’

    ‘I promise you it’s not poisoned.’

    You waited, and waited, and waited. A good few seconds passed before Marcus finally stopped starting, getting over whatever moral complex he was having, and took the damn slice.

    And from the look on his face and the soft moans he gave, it was the first time he had tried one of Andre’s masterpieces.

    ‘This is really good!’

    Laughing, you pushed the box into his lap. There was something wholesome about the pure joy he omitted as he opened the box, pointing to each flavour and asking you to give a rundown of what it was.

    ‘Marcus?’

    You had never witness joy melt away so quickly.

    Marcus’s back straightened out, fingers tightening around the box so hard you were afraid he was going to have smashed cake decorating his lap for the rest of the day.

    Slowly, he turned towards the woman’s voice, his smile strained but from the outside appeared to be nothing less than picture-perfect, ‘Hey!’

    When you turned, your heart dropped. You hadn’t expected her to be so pretty, and she was in workout gear with her hair pulled back and sweat dripping down her face, for crying out loud! Cheeks flushed red, she hardly panted with her hands on her hips.

    She smiled sweetly at the both of you, ‘I wasn’t expecting you to be here still. How have you been?’

    ‘Yeah, I’m still here. I negotiated a stay deal with HQ. Here I am.’

    'Here you are.’

    There was a pause.

    A very long, very awkward pause.

    And there was nothing you could think of that would help that moment but hope and pray for his sake whoever this woman went away.

    ‘Crap! Sorry I’m being rude.’ Marcus scratched the back of his neck. You knew better than to embarrass him in front of an old friend, but lord, you hated him for dragging you into this mess of a conversation, ‘This is Emma. Emma, this is-‘

    ‘Wait.’ Your cheeks heated under Emma’s gaze, her eyes squinted like she was trying to remember where you were from, ‘You’re Aaron Hill’s ex, right? I’ve seen some photos of you.’

    Photos. AKA, Facebook.

    And if you thought your heart had cracked when you saw her, it practically shattered from just hearing that dick's name, ‘Yep. That’s me.’

    ‘Sorry, I didn’t mean that to be creepy! Marcus and I used to date. Me and Aaron are actually engaged now.’

    Shattered. ‘Congrats!’

    ‘Thank you.’ She held up her left hand as, you don’t know, proof? To brag? Either way, the giant rock on her finger shimmered in the light, ‘Never thought I’d be getting married, to be honest. But here I am!’

    ‘Here you are.’

    ‘But I see you’re doing well for yourself? Found yourself someone new.’ She gestured between the two of you, her smile dropping at the confused looks on yours and Marcus’s faces, ‘The cake box? Liv Your Best Dreams? Me and Aaron have been trying to book an appointment there for weeks but it’s always too full.’

    Right. The cake box. From the bridal shop. You just came back from. With Marcus. Your colleague. Totally not your fiancé or any other kind of romantic relations.

    ‘Yes!’ Marcus was the first to jump in, his arm subtle sliding across the back of the bench, ‘Your best friend runs the store, isn’t that right, honey?’

    Honey?

    Of all things, he was going to call your honey?

    Honey.

    A sour feeling boiled in your stomach, but you smiled through it. You leaned a smidgen closer into Marcus’s touch because, hey, if this was happening, you might as well make it somewhat believable.

    ‘Yeah, she does.’ You finally choked out, still trying to get your mind off honey, ‘She’s a bit run off her feet at the moment, spring is always her busiest time. But I’m sure I can put in a word for you, if you want?’

    ‘Oh my god, really? You can do that?’ The smile on her face was sickly sweet, ‘That would be amazing!’

    And yet, that sour feeling lingered as you passed her a pen, giving her room to scribble her number on the top of the white box lid. Each line was another painful score to the heart, digging deeper and deeper and with all your mite you wanted to just yell at her to go away.

    But you didn’t. Of course, you didn’t. The guilt would have eaten you up for weeks.

    Marcus's hand rested on your shoulder, fingers brushing along the stiff muscles of your arm. It was surprisingly relaxing, the warmth of his touch seeping through the thin material of your jacket. You couldn’t turn to look at him, your chest was already too tight, too close to tears and you were scared if you did look at him, see that forced smile he was undoubtedly wearing, you would break.

    ‘Thank you so much! You’re a lifesaver!' And just like that, Emma clipped the lid back on the pen and handed it to you, ‘I guess I’ll see you two lovebirds around then.’

    ‘I guess so.’

    You shared a wave as she jogged away.

    The two of you sat in silence for a long time after that, even when the woman disappeared around the corner to some other part of the park. Slowly, Marcus’s hand melted away from your shoulder, falling back into his lap in defeat and you wondered if that interaction was just as hard on him as it was on you.

    Still not knowing what to say, you handed him the silence of cake.

    ‘Well, that was…’

    ‘…Interesting…’

    ‘…yeah.’

    Oh honey, this was going to be a mess from the start.
