It was the best time of year. The air was becoming crisp and it was in fashion to break out the jumpers and boots. Pippa had a long Aran sweater with chunk, fat cables that came down over her bum. To go with the lovely cream colour she had chosen brown leggings and finished the look off with knee high boots of a slightly lighter brown. She had her hair up in a messy bun.But the crowning accessory was the Starbucks cup that held the most precious of things.

Pumpkin Spice Latte.

She had her drink in one hand and her mobile in the other as she scrolled through Pintrest, looking, still, at decor ideas. Fin's remodel had given her ideas for her own flat. Not a full remodel, no, but it wouldn't hurt to update a few things. Maybe get a little crafty and build some shelves.

And then Pip stopped on the sidewalk near a tube stop and reflected on herself.

Oh, God...I'm so basic she thought. It was just a moment of self doubt. But then she sipped her drink and realized she didn't give a fuck what anyone thought of how she chose to enjoy autumn. Jumpers were good and PSL was delicious. And if anyone had anything to say about it she'd turn them into a toad. That thought made her smile. Yes, she was sure she could manage turning someone into a toad.

"I'm so terribly sorry," said a woman who had to be seventy or more. "Is this the train to Piccadilly?"

Pippa had no idea so she called up the map on her phone and helped the woman find her way. It was a small act of kindness that left her smiling even as the woman descended the stairs. All thoughts of turning people into toads vanished and just a tiny bit of magic escaped her control, perfuming the air with pumpkin spice and making hearts lighter as they passed.

(Any tube stop, find Pippa smiling fondly. She's in a good mood and her magic makes that a tiny bit contagious. Open forever)

"Well, me neither," House said, needlessly. "And I only ran into him by chance on the street, after he was back."

"Well, I'm sure it was deserved," House said. "And I imagine you giving someone a piece of your mind leaves quite an impression." He'd only gotten a little taste himself.

House ordered a triple americano when prompted, and then looked back at her. "I suppose you'll be drinking tea."

"Can fairies get diabetes?" House asked her dryly.

House smirked at her and picked up the coffee that appeared on the counter for him.

"Hey at least you're not flirting with me anymore," he said.

"... great," said House, and took a drink from his cup. He made a note that he should probably not be drunk at the same time.

"I don't dislike you more than I dislike everyone else," House said. "That's what it's like to be an American in London."

"I like things," said House.

"Well those are some of my favorites," House conceded. "But I'll give you two more. Jazz music and monster trucks."

"It is a very large truck that drives over things and destroys them," said House.

"Yes," House said. "You brits aren't nearly destructive enough. I mean, I haven't even seen someone shooting a gun at clouds here yet."
