welcome, ghosts - ohyousinners - 방탄소년단 | Bangtan Boys | BTS [Archive of Our Own]
Hoseok and Taehyung end up one hour late to soundcheck, and Namjoon berates them for well over five minutes. Hoseok just loops an easy arm around Taehyung’s waist, dragging him in, leaning on him for support as he counts the seconds that Namjoon goes without breathing. They get shuffled to hair and make-up after that, and from then on Hoseok can’t breathe without inhaling the foggy, cloying scent of hair-spray. He probably can’t touch his hair without being cut by the sharp edges.

|| Short thing from a band au that feels about 20 to 30k longer, but the relationships and the fundamental conflict are developed so effectively that you can see the problems and the ultimate resolution. Really really enjoyed.

right wrist, left ankle, heart [1/2] [for yummyda]: got2015
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.

that may be all i need - theafterimages - EXO (Band) [Archive of Our Own]
Chanyeol isn’t sure what to think of Jongdae’s new roommate until they bond over music. Then he can’t stop thinking about him.

|| Yes, a bit bro-y, but I actually liked the way the pining in this was absolutely self-aware: Chanyeol knows he likes guys, and once he realizes he likes Kyungsoo, the rest of the dance is just figuring out how not to put his foot in his mouth and look like an idiot. Fun.

Summer Fling, Don't Mean A Thing - Chapter 1 - fridaysblues (taemin) - EXO (Band) [Archive of Our Own]
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.

|| Reaaaaally liked this--the verse is fleshed out, the characters seem full-fledged and interesting and recognizably themselves, and lots of fic-worthy stupidity regarding feelings. Satisfyingly long.

Never Knew What a Good Time Was 'Til I Had a Good Time With You - riots - EXO (Band) [Archive of Our Own]
“I brought a friend,” Sehun tells him, his arm sliding free. He gestures towards someone sitting at the bar. The guy looks younger than Sehun and completely out of place, with his neat, blue and white striped shirt and his thick-framed glasses. He's not as tall as Sehun is, but he's close. It's a good thing Minseok doesn't have a complex about his short height, because all his friends seem to tower over him “Hyung, this is Lu Han.”

|| Band AU, set in Korea. riots does sympathetic but emotionally distant narrators really well, in a way I find very personally satisfying. It's not super surprising she seems to gravitate towards the more introverted members of EXO. I like the development a lot.

maayacola - KPop: make a day feel like a minute (Baekhyun/Chanyeol, PG-13) [1/4]
Chanyeol doesn’t want to ‘get to know’ the guy who comes to every show dressed in a bright gold jacket and carrying a glittery sign with Chanyeol’s name on it. Except, well, he kind of does. (It is a bitchin’ jacket.)

|| Lololol, he totally does. This fic is darling, and very teenage, and exactly the right tonic for all the crying I did about heartbreak in Bigbang. Anyway. This author does unsure-about-feelings-and-how-to-talk-about-them extremely well, and I loved the way things worked out in the end.

This Is How We Go - skoosiepants - Teen Wolf (TV) [Archive of Our Own]
Scott and Stiles go on the Warped Tour with Allison’s band.

“I think we need to bring more joy to the children,” Stiles says. “I think we need to dress as pirates and do the Scott is a Terrible Pirate skit, because *you are a terrible pirate*,” and when Stiles says pirate, Stiles means friend. Scott is a terrible, horrible friend, and Stiles hates him.

WTF--everyone's in a band, except for how Scott and Stiles are in a children's show, in which Stiles is sometimes a unicorn. But it's skoosiepants, so it's DELIGHTFUL--from Boyd to Lydia, to Allison who is both sweet and terrifying, to Scott and Stiles's friendship. A complete delight.
