It didn’t mean anything. There was no way it meant anything. They were - they were roommates. Friends. They had different bedrooms and different beds and - and okay, fine, they didn’t always sleep in their own beds every single night, but they mostly did.

|| There are a couple of odd jangling notes for me in this, but they're muted enough I can mostly just enjoy the obliviousness. I like the RM pov pretty well. Fun.

Happy birthday, @blotthis​! It’s pretty rough, but...
It didn’t feel anything like a dream, but part of Jungkook was still convinced that he was dreaming.

He twisted his fingers in the front of Jimin’s jacket. Jimin made a breathless sound into Jungkook’s mouth.

|| AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

A birthday present!!! Really, really, really sweet: manages to capture a get-together that is exciting and uncertain and the product of mutual pining, and uses well-placed backstory to get that pining to have weight, even in 2k. I've had this open in a tab ever since my birthday, and I keep rereading it to feel Warm and Happy.

The first time he sees Seokjin cry, Jimin is seventeen years old, too old to not notice and too young to let it go.

"Hyung," he calls softly, "what's wrong?"

It's dark in their bedroom, and everyone else is sleeping. Namjoon's snores echo through the room, so loud that Jimin barely recognizes the sound of sniffling beneath it.

Seokjin immediately stops. Jimin peers over the side of his bunk and looks down at where Seokjin sleeps. The only thing he can see in the darkness is the bright glistening of tears in Seokjin's eyes. His breath stutters in his throat.

"Go back to sleep, Jimin."

"Are you okay?"

Jimin blinks, eyes slowly adjusting to the low light. Seokjin looks back up at him, expression gentle.

"Don't worry about me," he smiles. "I'll be fine."

|| The controlling metaphor in this is a bit much, but around it everything is soft and well-observed and a bit achey. My favorite scenes are probably this one (too old not to notice and too young to let it go UGH) and the scene in the car at the end, but again really good cameos from everyone.

you're my human holiday - minghao - 방탄소년단 | Bangtan Boys | BTS [Archive of Our Own]
“Jeonggukkie, don’t make me. You can’t. If you really love me, you won’t make me do this.” Jimin’s eyes meet his, and Jeongguk’s heart literally plummets down to his stomach because shit, shit, shit, he’s giving Jeongguk the look that makes him weak at the knees and flustered and sweaty and nervous. Also, the l-word is something he’s still not used to, and that kinda makes him weak, too.

Jeongguk clears his throat, his face warm, and says, “Jin-hyung won’t kill you, he loves you.”

|| High school AU--they use hyung, but the grade system is American, and Jungkook references something the size of Texas, so, I'm just going to go with Korean-American HS au--dares, and obliviousness, and Jin being meddling.

Consequences of a Night out Drinking - wortmalerei - 방탄소년단 | Bangtan Boys | BTS [Archive of Our Own]
“That’s not true at all”, Jeongguk replied in exasperation. “I do things with you all the time and of course I like you!” He broke off as he realized that he was trying to argue with someone who was beyond logic at the moment. “Hyung”, he sighed, “you’re drunk, so let’s not talk about this right now, okay? Can we just get up and go to bed?”

He groaned when Jimin suddenly started giggling. “I can feel it in my nose when you speak!”

|| As illustrated above, lots of commas in the wrong place on the dialogue tags, but I really really liked this otherwise, the way Jungkook is so thrown and hyper-aware of Jimin post-drunken episode, and Jimin's soft delight at the end. A bunch of the dialogue is fun, too.

Jinyoung, for all intents and purposes, isn’t really a fansite master for love. The money’s just enough to make him forget how much he can’t stand Jackson Wang.

|| Jinyoung and Jackson go way back--Jinyoung was Jackson's Korean tutor when he was still a trainee, and "somehow" he got roped into being Jackson's fansite master. Fun; lots of denial.

A month before GOTSTAR's first tour, Mark has to step down as the band's drummer. Turns out that this is the least of Jaebum's problems.

|| Oh, I liked this, the twisty-tangled nature of JB's feelings and worries and insecurities, all the members' personalities--particularly Mark and Jackson, feeling very themselves, operating with their own motivations and reactions. Lots of obliviousness and pining.

World Ain't Ready - Chapter 1 - idiopathicsmile - Les Misérables - All Media Types [Archive of Our Own]
Enjolras presses his lips together. He already looks pained, and Grantaire hasn't even opened his mouth yet. That's got to be a record, even for them.

"I need a favor," he says at last.

"With what?" says Grantaire. "Ooh, are you forming a cult? Can I join? I'd be awesome at cults, I just know it." He ticks off his qualifications on his fingers. "I love chanting, I look great in robes—"

(High school AU. Grantaire the disaffected stoner is pulled into a cause bigger than himself. Or: in which there are pretend boyfriends for great justice.)

|| A great, meaty high school fake-dating au that delivers on obliviousness and pining, all while dealing with some really really shitty stuff--child abuse, panic attacks, bullying, institutionalized homophobia. I read it while it was a WIP, and there were some chapters that were REALLY ROUGH to wait in-between, but I expect all through would move quickly enough to ache but not to wound. Warning, though.

“So did you and Mark finally sort out all your unresolved sexual tension?” Jinyoung asks Jackson, smirking as he settles down on the couch next to him. The effect is ruined somewhat by the giant pink bow he’s wearing on top of his head in the form of a headband but Jackson’s sure Jaebum has something to do with that.

Snapshots from a summer on the road. Kyungsoo keeps kissing Chanyeol and Chanyeol's not sure what that means, but he knows he likes it. A lot.

“Your face looks like it’s going to break. Are you actually going to cry now?”

“Your face looks like it’s going to break,” Jongin retorts. Ooh, burn.

Kyungsoo looks distinctly unimpressed, which, hey, Jongin just nearly fell to his death. She should cut him some slack. Before he can say anything else though, Kyungsoo starts walking in the opposite direction of the manhwa store.

|| AAG!Kyungsoo, which is kind of mystifying, except that Kyungsoo is just as nurturing and as combative and zero-shit-taking as in the real life, and I absolutely see the appeal of making those character traits a girl's. Kai is oblivious and dumb and a puppy, which I also liked quite a lot. Honestly a lovely HS au.

These past two years, Taichi has worked so not to be a coward.  To not take the easy way out, to be a man who could stand by his convictions, fight for his place.

But he can’t fight this.

|| A little bit rough in that it seems very put together, if that makes sense, but on the other hand, OT3 OT3 OT3 OT3!!! Also, the last scene with Chihaya seems especially in-character; oblivious and powerful as always.

feiling: these rules are made to break
as some kind of unspoken rule, friday nights are almost always spent at wonshik’s house because his parents almost never come home until late saturday morning, doing whatever it is they do to keep their small but highly successful shop well-stocked for the weekend crowd. usually, they would all go to wonshik’s together right after school, but taekwoon needed some time alone today, so here he is, walking silently into wonshik’s backyard at a quarter to nine.

|| In lapslock, but this is such an understated look at N and Leo, and N is so needy and Leo so reserved and kind of blind about it--I'd completely forgotten I'd read this before, and had just as much fun reading it the second time. The climax and resolution is darling.

maayacola - KPop: Favors the Bold (Kris/Lay, NC-17) [1/3]
Hands come to rest on his shoulders, and Wu Fan knows it’s Yixing not just by process of elimination, but by the scent of eucalyptus that seems to cling to him. “You’d have to lie less if you took off the jacket.”

“I said it’s fine,” Wu Fan says, shrugging the hands off and ignoring the flush that climbs up his neck at the way Yixing’s fingers drag down his shoulders as they fall.

|| Enjoying this fic required, for me, a kind of mental handwaving that Yixing's actions could really, REALLY, r e a l l y be that persistently opaque, but I eventually came round to it being like boiling a frog: if you have a friend who's really flirty or really unpredictable, at what stage are you sure--REALLY SURE--that they're not just messing with you? Kris attempts to find out; suffers a lot. (Also a lot of handwaving for Kris enjoying being in EXO, but given his propensity to refer back to it even now, I assume it probably wasn't his bandmates that were the problem.)

Even Though We Ain't Got Money, I'm So In Love With You, Honey - metafictionally - EXO (Band) [Archive of Our Own]
It’s the middle of summer when Baekhyun suggests the trip, from where he’s sprawled across Chanyeol’s bed. Chanyeol is leaning against his desk, absently fingering chords on his guitar, and Baekhyun is reading upside-down from the romance quiz section of a teen magazine. "‘If you answered mostly A, your love life could be lacking in spontaneity,’" Baekhyun says, very seriously. "I think our love life is lacking in spontaneity."

"We don’t have a love life," Chanyeol says.

jongin slings an arm around his shoulders and chuckles as sehun attempts to shrug him off. why so pissy, maknae?

i’m not pissy, sehun retorts, and pushes jongin away from him, into the surprised arms of kyungsoo. jongin promptly turns away from sehun and beams at his boyfriend. sehun rolls his eyes.

he’s pissy because he’s playing us today, wufan’s voice sounds, and sehun fights the urge to whip around and fix him with a death glare. and you know who’s in our team.

"Hyung couldn't sleep," Taehyung says, by way of explanation. He feels like some explanation is probably needed for why he and Hoseok are snuggling on the couch together. "Sometimes he can't sleep, and then he comes and gets me and we sleep out here. He says he doesn't know why, but having me around makes it better."

Or: the one where Taehyung is completely and utterly oblivious.
