Interdimensional Independent Coffee Coöp

A place for governments-in-exile, plucky survivors, unlucky survivors, the horrifically mutated, and other assorted characters to ride out the nuclear hellstorm until it's safe to go outside again.

Interdimensional Independent Coffee Coöp

Postby Middle Barael » Sun Sep 19, 2021 7:12 pm

Welcome, traveler, to the Interdimensional Independent Coffee Coöp
Where you can get a nice Cup of Joe as nukes destroy your home

Come here to enjoy a nice MAD Mocha, a Lifeless Latte, Atomic Americano, or a Fallout Frappuccino!
We also serve snacks, such as our famous Biohazard Brownies and our Radioactive Rainbow Bagels.


In true independent coffeeshop fashion, we are #Pacifist, #NukeFree, #Environmentalist, #Anarchist, and #Socialist but all are welcome!

So why don’t you just pull up a seat and patiently wait for one of our dedicated worker-owners to help you?

Note: This is an in-character thread, though none of the events happening here will be considered canon in my universe. Also, while IRL I am a pacifist, anti-WMD, and an environmental activist, I am not Anarchist or socialist generally speaking

A burly, bearded, tattooed man walks over. Other café patrons seem on edge, even scared by him, as the floorboards creek under him. In a deep voice he says, “Yes, I too find the concept of mutual annihilation by means of fission-based nuclear explosions to be deeply unsettling. I surmise that a majority of people in the nation whence I hail, Middle Barael, agree, though not many of them are as radical as I when it comes to my activism. Also, did you want a drink?”

A group of 6 men walk through the door of the cafe. They're each dressed in casual attire, sporting somewhat tattered clothing. They all wore red tank tops or short-sleeve shirts with cargo jeans. Some shirts and jeans were sweaty, dirty, or both and some had tears or holes on them. 4 of the men had AK-47s holstered on their backs, while the two in front of them had pistols fastened in side holsters.

"Hard liquor, please. Whiskey for one of the mates behind me." said one of the men, strolling up to the counter. A shark tooth necklace dangled from his neck.

President Nathalie Pérreau
A woman in her 50s enters the bar, accompanied by a couple of men in black jackets and dark glasses who open the door for her. The woman sits in a composed manner on one of the tables while the two men remain at a certain distance, looking around cautiously.
The President of the European Federation takes the menu and looks for something that reminds her of her beloved France: "I hope the coffee here is great, I will definitely need it for the days to come."
Addressing the two bodyguards he asked: "Do you want something? J'offre..."
To the negative response of the two, the president tries to attract the waiter's attention.
"Garçon! A rallongé accompanied by a simple Croissant, please.

"Sorry about the wait, had to deal with these gunslinging guys. Ah, I see you're getting some Old School coffee. The 'OG', as they say. Here it is, sir. As-salaam alaykum!"

Most of our guests are hippies or socialists, or stranded nuke blast survivors too I guess. Not to judge, of course. I do apologize, I don't quite know what you mean by a rallongé. Do you mean a café allongé , better known as a Lungo?"

"Ah, well that's such a shame," the man replies, "Luckily, we came prepared."

One of the men behind him sets a large briefcase down on the table. Opening it up, it reveals a case of beer with what appears to be Spanish text on the label. Each man grabs a bottle from the briefcase before it is closed again.

"Name's Vaas by the way," he introduces, "My friend beside me here with the pistol is Diego. And uhh, the gun thing may be a problem..."

The President made a gesture with her hand, as if to dispel any concern: "Oh well, I went into this bar because it is always the only one open in this area and I needed a good coffee after an international meeting."
That said, she picked up a newspaper and looked on the front page where a headline in large letters read "THE END OF THE WORLD IS NEAR!" accompanied by an image of a mushroom cloud. "Either way, an allongé is just fine."



Here's what happens when you're not French and you rely on what you read on a travel blog. There it was said that rallongé and allongé are both accepted terms for Lungo coffee.

The group of men go to sit at two booths, each enjoying their beers they had brought with them.

A tired man wearing a baseball cap and shorts fell through the door.

He dragged himself with his relatively well-endowed arms onto the nearest wall.

There, he righted himself into a hunched form, with his arms hopelessly plopped on the wall.

"Can I have an espresso and a brownie?"

As he slumped across the nearest chair, he pulls out a surprisingly stainless newspaper from his shorts.

As he read it in a monotone Canadian accent, not much could have been heard apart from the words "antagonistic beaver" and "nuclear plant".

“Haha, yes, you Europeans are certainly more rule-following than a lot of places. Mighty respect for you guys. I lived in Amsterdam for 9 years, and I travelled across Southern Europe for a year, and it’s been some of the best of my life. Now, of course, I’m just in the Interdimensional Void of Vault 41, which is fun I guess.”
