I saw this post a few weeks ago and immediately thought of Erik. Victorian, modern, whatever AU you stick him in, Erik will always be the king of melodrama. Barista: “Hi, what can I get you?” Erik: “Coffee.” Barista: “Okay. Anything in it?” Erik: “Nothing.” Barista: “So just black?” Erik: “Black. Yes. Like the shriveled abyss that is my soul.” Barista”………….So….no cream…at all?
