(Oh, man, I bet Rivendell is the name of a massively snooty coffee shop (although people in the know call it Imladris), where all the employees are seriously gorgeous but will not give you the time of day. They have Dead Language Open Mic Nights and Crystal Instrument Musicale Tuesdays. Arwen is the daughter of the owner; she gets harassed a lot for wanting to marry this dude who is totally scruffy and, like, mainstream. No, wait, I am stopping this right now.)
I feel that I must tell you that Rivendell is the name of a local bike shop, and the parallels between baristas and bike shop employees are strong. (Bringing a Sears bike into some bike shops is like mixing Folgers instant in front of a serious coffee snob -- and then dumping a pixie stick into the cup.) So, you know, totally like a barista AU, only with more technical materials -- ie, Spandex.
