The Space In Between - Chapter 157 - noraebangbang - 방탄소년단 | Bangtan Boys | BTS [Archive of Our Own]
The hammock rocks as Taehyung crawls in, and Jimin accepts the snuggling even if it’s so so so hot that he kinda wants to die. Taehyung drapes a leg over Jimin’s waist, face pressed against the crook of Jimin’s neck, and Jimin resumes his hair-petting, letting one leg dangle over the side to lazily rock them.

“Did you ever imagine,” Jimin says quietly a few minutes later, and the quick, quiet snort from Taehyung makes him laugh some; he must’ve fallen asleep, “that we’d be here one day?”

|| This is so soft and sweet and ahhhhhhhh. I love when authors have Tae make sudden, serious, and awkwardly sincere statements; judging by his fc posts, it's something that could happen. Nerd.

come across the kitchen to me - Acavall - 방탄소년단 | Bangtan Boys | BTS [Archive of Our Own]
Jungkook almost lets out an audible groan at his own ridiculousness. He does not need to be jealous of Jimin. He has no right to be jealous of Jimin. Why the fuck is he jealous of Jimin for sitting pressed against Hoseok.

Jungkook’s roommate. On Jungkook’s sofa. Under Jungkook’s roof. The audacity.

|| I loved this! It's so quietly funny, and softly aching, and it doesn't do as good a job with the backstory as the canon-based one--doesn't have our knowledge of them growing up together to fill in the holes--but it's still really lovely, believably-cowardly pining, and a soft conclusion.

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.

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.

Finally Sorn looked up, holding her hand palms flat against the frets. Sorn’s face was soft and open but Seunghee knew that Sorn was even better at playing her part than Seunghee was.

|| This fic is tiny but it takes me apart in all the best ways; putting a quiet voice to the small uncertain sadness I've been carrying about CLC and not understanding what is up with them, and how they're doing, and this takes the two softest members and has them help each other back to this hard, hard job they've found themselves in.

Youth - taejinyo - 방탄소년단 | Bangtan Boys | BTS [Archive of Our Own]
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.

Six Kisses - imasinner - 방탄소년단 | Bangtan Boys | BTS [Archive of Our Own]
It’s an unquestioned truth that Jung Hoseok loves physical affection. He’s usually the giver, brimming with love and the need to show it to his groupmates. But birthdays are about receiving, and Hoseok’s present is morning kisses.

(established casual poly/ot7 ; not necessarily romantic, but not necessarily platonic either)

|| This was really nice. The Jimin and Jungkook sections were my favorite--captured Jimin's limp shamlessness and Hobi's clinginess with him, and Jungkook's softness with Hobi as well as his youthful slyness--but the whole thing is nice. Kisses for Hoseok! (The fic itself skews yoonseok, but that part's good too.)

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)

“Wow,” Jin’s already talking as he walks out of his room, half the boys still asleep while the other three, Yoongi, Namjoon and Jungkook are scattered across the small common area with mugs and half eaten bagels littering the table, “It looks like Yoongi made his bed this morning!” 

There’s a teasing edge to his tone, the surprise forced and overdone, lips quirked into a knowing grin as he gives Yoongi a suggestive look. They all know what he means, but Namjoon still, uselessly, adds, “It’s only because he hasn’t slept there in months.”

|| This is really sweet. The conflict is more with the members than between Yoongi and Jimin, and it doesn't go farther than bedsharing, but. Sweet.

Jimin leans back against the headboard, a pillow tucked tightly between his knees. He doesn't know how this happened, or more specifically, why it's happening now, but the only person he knows who can help is Taehyung. Taehyung presented as an alpha when they were only fourteen, his pheromones strong enough for Jimin to smell from a mile away. Jimin had held out hope for far too long that he'd come into alpha status as well, but by the time they started college, he'd contented himself with life as a beta. At twenty-two, he never expected for something like this to happen so suddenly.

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.

ambient light - Lirazel - Multifandom [Archive of Our Own]
Hongbin is a hoobae, but he debuted long enough ago that he doesn’t need to feel like a rookie around someone like Myungsoo.
 
“They’re really great, sunbae,” Hongbin says, and he sounds sincere, but not overly enthusiastic like some people might. “You have a really good eye.”

A little frisson of pleasure snakes up Myungsoo’s spine, the kind he feels whenever someone compliments his pictures and he can tell they mean it.

Oscar Wilde and Walt Whitman Probably Had Sex Once
This is a gift. You do realize that, don’t you? History has reached out to you specifically and given you a gift. The gift is the knowledge that Oscar Wilde once put his hand on Walt Whitman’s knee and then they drank elderberry wine together; the gift is that the next day a reporter turned up and Whitman expounded at length on his big, splendid boy. Let this sink in a moment. This is like finding out Emily Dickinson once secretly stowed away on a ship bound for England and spent a weekend with Jane Austen at a bed and breakfast, doing it. This is like finding out Ernest Hemingway finally let his guard down one night in Spain and let F. Scott Fitzgerald lean across the table and kiss him. This is like finding out Gwendolyn Brooks lost her virginity to Willa Cather.

The night is long, and the night is full of terrors, but Walt Whitman once drank wine with Oscar Wilde in his third-story den, where they talked of love.

|| Oh. You know, I did not really care, but I love this. All right, Yuletide, pull it together now.

The first time Carlos notices it, they’re in bed, enjoying a Saturday night in. Cecil lies back, a satisfied sigh falling from his lips, and Carlos lays his head on Cecil’s chest, fingers intertwining over his stomach. He’s lying on Cecil’s left side, and he settles, snuggles closer, expecting to hear that faint rhythm, but –

Nothing. Carlos frowns and listens harder, pressing his ear more fully against Cecil’s chest. “What are you doing?” Cecil asks, laughing a little.

|| Very sweet. I really like how Carlos and Cecil are with each other, here, and the ending is not whoa in a painful way, but in a glowy (literally) way. Very worth it.

inspired by your laugh to wait for things - gyzym - Welcome to Night Vale [Archive of Our Own]
"I was just," Carlos says, and it comes out fucked up and shattered and pleading -- which is horrifying -- because he doesn't know what he'll do if Night Vale is a dream, he really doesn't. "I missed the show, could you -- or, no, I mean, I can't ask you to -- I just, uh, I wanted to -- Cecil, I --"

And then Cecil makes this little sound, the sound he always makes when Carlos says his name, and puts on his radio voice. He says, "Hang a map of a place you'll never go on your living room wall. Draw new streets. Tear off bodies of water. Wait for news crews to arrive. Welcome to Night Vale," and Carlos thinks he understands something, maybe, about Cecil, the way Cecil knows when and just how to comfort this town.

|| Cecil and Carlos, and how they fit together. Gyzym adds wonderful things to the town, and to the backstory--something about it sits a bit wrong, I can't help imagining Carlos as more *informative* than this--and I miss the humor of the show like a second skin. But beautifully rendered, and the moment, quoted above, made me choke up--what a gift to give.

PACIFIC RIM SPOILERS

The vast majority of Jaeger pilots can drift with each other, it’s just a matter of fit. If someone gave you a pair of running shoes that were three sizes too big, technically you could still use them - stuff the toes, tighten the laces, adjust your gait - but a co-pilot, a partner, is custom-made for you, molded to the shape of you. Try running with the real thing after a lifetime of knock-offs. You might as well have wings.

|| Okay! This gives an explanation for why Raleigh is so set on Mako from the very beginning--as a trained pilot, he's aware of her mind from the get go, and knows she's a perfect fit. I like. However--I was trying to figure out why I actually, kinda, really hated this as I read it--and it's because it's absolutely worshipful. There's nothing wrong with either of them, there's nothing wrong with their relationship, and there are no edges, nearly, anywhere.

HOWEVER. There's a moment, near the end, that is absolutely wonderful, and I'm saving it for that. You'll know it. It's about Easter.

Cecil has never not been the host of the Night Vale community radio show.

One day long ago, Cecil walked into the desert and never came back.

Cecil and Carlos deal with life, sex, pancakes, and possibly being anthropomorphic personifications. Also, Night Vale history as told by Night Vale, and a step-by-step guide to defying Death. Today's weather is by Ray Bradbury.

Parerga Atakta, a tsubasa chronicle fanfic | FanFiction
'I found a story about us,' Fye said. He pushed the book against Kurogane's chest, leant close. 'Listen. Listen. And striving still the Twiceborn stood against the poison-bearing beast and struck out its eyes, and from its talons snatched his sword-brother, who lay swooning upon the grass. Thereupon the Twiceborn gave unto him the philtre he had bought from the queen with his own heart's blood, and the Dark Warrior awoke and clasped him in his arms and cried passionately –'

'The hell,' Kurogane said, choking. 'Give me that.'
