another life - Acavall - 방탄소년단 | Bangtan Boys | BTS [Archive of Our Own]
Hoseok has noticed this look a lot the past few days, in between the lost luggage and the bustle of seven people under one roof and the cameras in their faces. Sometimes he catches Jungook looking at him, but his eyes are unfocused, like he’s seeing something else. It’s probably not a look specifically aimed at Hoseok. It’s probably that Jungkook is lost in thought and has no idea who he’s levelling his unflinching stare at. It’s just impossible not to notice when Jungkook’s eyes are boring holes through Hoseok's cheekbones.

Hoseok has no idea what to make of it, not then and not now, so instead he swipes a fake pineapple from a nearby dining table display and balances it on Jungkook’s head.

|| An outtake from the Bon Voyage episode where Jungkook and Hoseok go to IKEA. This is so, so, soooooooooo sweet--very nearly too, at the end?--but it does my favorite thing about this ship, capturing the push and pull of their maturity and silliness, and how good of a listener Hoseok is, and how that affects how he responds to people. And a really good Jungkook, too, I love him putting Hoseok down in a bathtub.

formal absences of precious things - pettey - 방탄소년단 | Bangtan Boys | BTS [Archive of Our Own]
The first night he spends at Jimin’s new place, Jeongguk decides it’s finally the right time to start catching up.

Or, that tedious post-disbandment fic.

|| Parts of this are weirdly hard to follow, like the author leaned to far into compression and got not-enough-information, but there are ALSO a bunch of beats that worked for me really well, in terms of emotion. I did kind of ache the whole time--disbandment, augh, and this is a vision where they love each other but are not super in touch--but that distance provides the space for the: what happens when you start to grow up separately, start to make your own adulthood--and then get back in touch. How do the pieces fit together. It's a compelling question.

But the next time Hoseok falls asleep in yet another uncomfortable dressing room chair with his head held carefully to protect his already styled hair – Jeongguk can't help but think he would've made one fine court lady back in the day – Jeongguk is there, alert and ready. Hoseok must realize what he's up to – he always does, usually before Jeongguk himself could even make sense of his own actions – but he doesn't comment on it; doesn't tease Jeongguk the way Jimin and Yoongi do whenever they catch him 'playing hyung,' as Jimin once put it with a sappy grin, messing up Jeongguk's hair just to be annoying.

It's not like that, anyway.

|| Goddddddd, this is the fic that convinced me Junghope was something I loved--it packs an emotional wallop for something so short (barely 1k!). All about protectiveness and growing up and knowing something is waiting for you, even if all it is right now is your hand in someone's hair.

Be There - taejinyo - 방탄소년단 | Bangtan Boys | BTS [Archive of Our Own]
Seokjin smiles, his eyes crinkling up into slits. "Don't worry about it, Jungkookie. This happens all the time," he says and brings his hand up to rest on Jungkook's shoulder and oh, he thinks, oh. He stares dumbly at where his hand meets the curve of a solid, tall shoulder for a moment before he recovers. "Ah, our Jungkookie's really grown. Already taller than me?" He laughs and looks up, and isn't that strange, to think that now to look into Jungkook's eyes, he has to actually look up.

Jungkook tears his eyes away from where they're gazing at Seokjin's hand on him and now he's looking right at Seokjin. "Yeah," he says after a long pause, the look in his eyes unreadable, "I guess I am."

|| Oh, this is nice. I like the way it builds in prior history and casts forward at the same time; I like Seokjin's worries and hesitances and willingness to take risks and the way he thinks about growing up--it feels very Seokjin, and very realistic for being the oldest; I like Jungkook's quiet nervous surety and I love every member cameo. Really good across the board.

Hush - Siobhandestele - 방탄소년단 | Bangtan Boys | BTS [Archive of Our Own]
“Are you comfortable?” Seokjin asks gently, scooting towards the wall so Jungkook would have a little more wiggle room. Jungkook nods into his shoulder.

|| Touch-starved Jungkook is skittish with Bangtan, but they're willing to wait him out (or drag him into things, if they're Hoseok or Jimin). Really really lovely, if a few grammatical errors. (Ignore me really enjoying Jimin sitting in JK's lap, move along)

Figuring It Out as We Go - peppermint_wind - 방탄소년단 | Bangtan Boys | BTS [Archive of Our Own]
Jungkook never thought this would happen to him; eighteen years old and questioning everything he used to know. Staying up late watching gay music videos with wide-eyes, phone tucked to his chest, probably isn't helping him much, either, but what is he supposed to do when he realizes seeing two men together makes his whole body ache?

|| Oh my god, I read this and then immediately re-read it. Only about 5k, but really satisfying AND heart-warming, for all the big-ness of the subject.

youth in revolt - mediest - 방탄소년단 | Bangtan Boys | BTS [Archive of Our Own]
Four times Jimin takes the blame and one time Jungkook steps up.

|| I liked this--the way their relationship is slightly uneven, and they're both young and doing shit they shouldn't, although in different ways. The ending was really satisfying, the way it felt like a step towards both of them being more honest and taking more responsibility.

idolkiller: BTS || PAUSE, STOP (Rap Monster/Suga)
Yoongi and Namjoon are high-schoolers trying to make it in Seoul's hip hop scene.

|| This one's a lot softer and moodier that the seven-minutes fic I just saved, but I liked it nonetheless. I particularly liked Namjoon, to be honest, and that this was based, in a lot of ways, on actual canon. It seems like the major change really just is the idea the Suga and Rapmon knew each other.
