Imaginary Friend - mousapelli - Haikyuu!! [Archive of Our Own]
It's just a weird coincidence, probably, that Kenma had made a wish on his birthday candles that if being in a Sentai was too much to ask, that he could have least one best friend kind of like that. And then the next day Kuroo Tetsurou was strolling into Kenma's backyard and banging on the screen door like he owned the place. That sense of unreality had never quite worn the whole way off.

"You're like…a real person, right?" Kenma had finally got up the nerve to ask a few days after that. Kuroo had laughed so hard that Kenma hadn't brought it up again, plus Kuroo had put him in a headlock and wanted to know whether hallucinations could do that.

|| Oh my gosh, I love this SO MUCH. It's a little slip of a thing, but Kenma--prickly, and quiet, and mostly settled in it--is perfect: it draws him a little unsure of the luck he has in making a friend who likes him as he is, and it draws it in a couple of brushstrokes. Perfect.

|| Background Jimin/Jungkook and Taehyung/Yoongi, but the selling point for me on this was the excellent 95line friendship--lots of snark, ultimately 100% there for each other, even texting each other in the middle of the night in the same room. University AU.

His bones feel like they're being pulled forward, like he has to fight them from curling into the curve of Jimin's body.

There's only so much he can do– His body leans in anyway. They giggle all the way up to their room, half pressed against each other. Holding each other up. Trailing behind the rest of their group and tripping over their own feet, cushioned by the safety nets they find in each other's arms.

“Lost in their own little world ,” he thinks he hears Seokjin mutter.

|| This fic is ostensibly about the first-time that happens in the second half, but it's mostly about BUILD--and what really makes it work for me is the way it weaves this backstory of a 95line who have been circling each other for ages, laughing and semi-breathless every time their gazes catch for too long--and this is the story of them FINALLY giving into that. It hits like you've been reading the gleeful pining for 10 or 20k already; you're that certain these kids are crazy about each other. The Tae has synesthesia thing is almost a little too played up for me in places, but I also really like it, so.

Waking up in Vegas - troubleseason (cats_cradle6766) - 방탄소년단 | Bangtan Boys | BTS [Archive of Our Own]
"Morning," Taehyung says and wow he sounds even more like an angry truck than usual. Impressive.

"Is it actually?" Jimin asks, and sounds raw and terrible and interesting for some reason. Whatever. Jimin squints for a clock. "It's, like, one in the afternoon."

"We just woke up; it's morning," Taehyung says, crawling back into the bed to use Jimin's thigh as a pillow. All of him hurt, so naps. Naps and cuddles. Cuddles make it all better. Always.

|| A woke-up-married in Vegas fic that had me distracted through most of it trying to figure out if they were still in a kpop band (they are; apparently.... very much an alternate universe one, it's fine), but I handwaved it for enjoying the easiness of the vmin in this, and the sweet simmering glow of Taehyung's realization. I love the ending.

mutuals; or, how to be a Super Secret Fanboy - jonghyunslisterine - 방탄소년단 | Bangtan Boys | BTS [Archive of Our Own]
taehyung and jimin run big bang fan blogs on tumblr, messaging almost daily.

little do they know- they're actually roommates.

|| This is so cute. Part of me the whole time was just like "TELL THEM," and the shenanigans to not tell each other got a little involved, but that's honestly part of the conceit--"how silly would this be." Also, as part of the someone-sees-you-on-tumblr-will-still-deny-having-a-tumblr-squad, like. I get it. Anyway really fun vmin characterization, and the tumblr messaging parts were delightful. The Jungkook cameo ended up better than I imagined. Korean-American AU.

One Sick Kookie - lilithlamb - 방탄소년단 | Bangtan Boys | BTS [Archive of Our Own]
Jungkook is bad at asking for help, but when a cold turns into something more serious, he doesn't have much of a choice.

|| Is this Hurt/Comfort? It probably.... It definitely is, lol. Anyway, it feels more about the relationship of all 7 members and the way they band together to take care of each other; each of their different responses feel pretty accurate, too, I really enjoyed that. Jin and Yoongi and to some extent Namjoon taking control of the situation or giving direction, Jin mothering, Jimin and Tae and Hoseok trying to provide help physically. I like that the length makes it develop as sickness does; that there's no FIXING it through them caring, but everyone's doing the best they can, once they figure it out. Gen.

home is where the heart is - jflawless - 방탄소년단 | Bangtan Boys | BTS [Archive of Our Own]
“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.

"Spit it out," Taehyung huffs, after Jimin's opened his mouth, paused, and closed it one too many times. He's careful, usually, but this is too much.

"I—" Jimin pauses, before finishing furiously under his breath, "I think I lost my dildo."

"You what?" Taehyung feels like he's been hit with a sledgehammer.

"We all know what the word pretty means. It just means that something is nice. It's attractive."

"Maybe that's not what it means to me," Jongup says.

Jongup thinks that pretty is girls on the street with laughing eyes and wide smiles. He thinks it's pebbles in the ocean but also the way Junhong looks after they've put all of his makeup on him, like a living doll. He thinks pretty is the glow of a cigarette at night and a perfect dance practice where everyone is in line, everyone is in sync. Pretty is improvisation. Pretty is the girls on variety shows.

Jongup can't say all of these things to Himchan, because each of them would become a battle.But if pretty is just a lesser level of beautiful, then Jongup really doesn't understand why everyone always says it about Himchan.

|| A great, warm-hearted fic, about definitions and deciding for your own, and support. I really really liked this. It's like a cup of tea and a hug. I don't know if either of these characterizations are accurate, but they're distinct, and interesting, and complex, and I really really liked.

“This is so annoying, I mean, I know what your farts smell like, for Pete’s sake. Kissing you should be easy.”

“Idiot, don’t talk about my farts right when I’m about to kiss you! No wonder you’re terrible at this!”

|| Okay, so apparently D.O and Chanyeol would travel home together pre-debut, and I'm going to take that as an excuse to believe that yes, they were good friends. This fic takes that idea and runs with it, plus adds in some Chanyeol who really is kind of a failure, and a lot of kissing.

“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.

the places we call home - jan - Natsume Yuujinchou [Archive of Our Own]
As it turns out, moving in was the easy part. The difficulty was in moving away: in the instant that the train pulled out of the station and the platform began to recede, and in the sudden shock of distance carried down a crackling phone line, and through the moments and moments since, at breakfast or dinner or half-asleep in a room whose shadows he had yet to learn. But he learns those, eventually, as he learns many other things -- things that, years ago, he would have lacked even the vocabulary for. For instance: forming a new home does not mean abandoning an old one. Many things can endure across distances. To be apart from someone does not mean you have lost them.

|| Oh, I loved this. Quiet and meditative in exactly the way the series is, with a fantastic grasp on both Natsume and Madara's voices. Has a couple of brief cameos of Madara in human form that were unexpectedly really compelling for me.

It was as close to perfect as a plan could be. Which is to say: not quite.
 
Myungsoo had plans and Howon had a dream, but the future is never that simple, no matter how certain it had seemed.

|| I'm too tired to give this a proper save, but here goes: long, satisfying, good. ABO that reads mostly like a figuring-out-soulbond story (which is why it worked for me so well), but warning with the worldbuilding: its founding conceit is that people can't resist heats, and so the soulbond is instigated by Hoya and Myungsoo having non-consensual sex (for both parties). Both of them are messed up over it, but I DON'T think the fic really deals with how horrible of a world that would be, and sometimes it was distracting, a sick jolt of oh GOD that is AWFUL. Part of the fic's interest--especially at the end--is Hoya and Myungsoo's interest in being activists against the stereotypes etc, but it feels a little tacked on.

Over all though, a really sweet, satisfying story about people falling in love. Really, really romantic: growing up, growing into each other, learning (and wanting) to make decisions together. Additional warning for two scenes of parental abuse, not extended or graphic.

Hoya sometimes has the brief impulse to email Sunggyu back and demand, “What are you supposed to do when you fall in love with your members?”

Hyung line heads off for their military service, leaving Hoya as leader of a four-member Infinite. And that’s when all his troubles start.

|| I opened up four tabs in Google to learn about the four different members included in this fic, and it was totally worth it. Hoya's arc is great here: learning to be a leader (and good at it), and falling in love with multiple people, and giving decisions to Sungjong when he can--he's a very easy narrator to like, and root for, and it's really fun (and hot) to see his members through his eyes. A+ recommend. Some (very light) d/s dynamics between Hoya and Sungjong, mostly in Sungjong makes all the bedroom decisions so Hoya can relax.

gdgdbaby: [oneshot] from the back of my broken hand
So they win a triple crown on Inkigayo, which is always nice.

|| Soft, sweet, established relationship, TOP telling GD to slow the fuck down.

빅스(VIXX) VIXX TV ep.78 (빅스티비 일흔여덟번째 이야기) - YouTube
The one where they win for Voodoo Doll, and everybody hugs, and Ravi and N and Leo cry, and they give really heartfelt messages to the fans, and Leo says he's going to practice ALL THE TIME while his eyes are still kind of puffy, and I teared up/couldn't stop grinning. So happy for these boys.

rain sound - 大失敗劇! ヒョギ誕生日だってばよ!!
wonshik shoots hakyeon a last, desperate look, but the leader swipes his thumb mercilessly across his neck. wonshik's sigh is deeper than the han river. he forces himself to look sanghyuk in the eye.

"hyukkie, it's an awful movie."

|| This is so stupid. I love it. (I'm actually terribly into Ravi and N's characterizations, here.)

rain sound - bathroom politics
"Jung Leooooo, hurry up! Other people need to peeeee!" Jaehwan plasters himself against the bathroom door and whines obnoxiously, nearly toppling over when it suddenly jerks open to reveal a cloud of steam and an annoyed-looking Taekwoon, clad in nothing but a towel around his hips.

"Yah! So indecent!" Jaehwan cries, throwing a hand over his eyes in mock scandal. "I need to pee," he repeats.

|| Adorable dorm-dynamics. Background Ravi/Hongbin.

wakinghyde: Fanfic: Implication
Leo sees it happen only a few feet before him and freezes for a moment when his shy euphoria is broken down and his heart leaps a little too high because this wasn’t supposed to happen.

|| Sometimes a little choppy with early-writer forced mysteriousness, but I really like this Leo, and his mix of focus, resolve, and absolute uninterest in the unimportant. Don't think VIXX is treated this poorly, but I like the Leo in this enough to keep it.
