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.

keep you in my focus - cumulus - GOT7 [Archive of Our Own]
Jackson is a variety star with a regular gig and Mark is his longtime VJ.

|| This is feels longer than its 10k: it's soft, and really satisfying. I really liked all the scenes with them being soft and unwound in each other's presence--that seems like what WOULD be the foundation Mark and Jackson's realtionship. The world feels pretty completely built-out; I enjoyed it a lot.

All Jungkook knows is lamb skewers, and metaphors of the sheepish variety. All Jimin wants is some food, and maybe the food cart guy, too.

|| I've had this open for AGES to save, and also to reread, but. Anyway. Mostly I remember this being sweet as anything, and nicely paced.

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.

you make my heart beat (faster) - Chapter 1 - onyu - 방탄소년단 | Bangtan Boys | BTS [Archive of Our Own]
Everything's going too fast. One step forward, and Seokjin's tendering his resignation from a company he's been servicing for eight years. Two steps, and he's going out for interviews, reviewing a job offer, signing a contract, on the first bus to Sallim-dong. Three steps, and he finds himself trapped in an elevator with an ex who ran away from him years ago and with his faith in humanity in tow.

Enter the agency's Chief Creative Officer, and everything slows the fuck down.

|| I really enjoyed this, and the double-plotline of Jin figuring out his goals next to the yoonjin plotline; some of it is probably weightier than it needs, but the author's familiarity with the actual job underpins it so well that I was with them the entire way. Admittedly--from what I remember, I read it a while ago. Enjoyed it enough that whatever sections I might've felt were throwing off the pacing didn't stick with me--what I remember is the sense of anxiety--I felt stressed about Jin getting the work done, about figuring out what was going on between Jin and Yoongi, about Jin doing something he loved in a way that put my heart in my throat and really worked as tension for me.

Cocoa Puffs - Chapter 1 - madigraye - 방탄소년단 | Bangtan Boys | BTS [Archive of Our Own]
based on the prompt: “I have the most embarrassing camp name on the planet and you’re like a legend around camp so I make sure I’m wearing a different person’s name tag every time you see me and apparently you’re trying to get my number but keep ending up with the wrong person.”

|| Thankfully that sitcom conflict is resolved really fairly quickly, and the rest is the push and pull of Yoongi and Jimin figuring themselves out. Way more satisfying than I expected (although the push and pull maybe goes on a bit long?) and I enjoyed the worldbuilding with the kids. (Minor reservations about said depictions, but overall, well-done, which is NICE and so rare.)

I know I'll fall in love with you, baby - Chapter 1 - witheredleaf (micooled) - 방탄소년단 | Bangtan Boys | BTS [Archive of Our Own]
“I, I think you might be my soulmate,” the boy stutters. And Yoongi is about to laugh because that’s ridiculous, that’s utterly preposterous. There must be a billion people out there with those exact words on their arm, and even then it’s so obviously planned, like this isn't what he says to every single fan coming here, what the fuck, and how will he explain Yoongi’s own bare wrist? Except—

Except the guy’s eyes widen even more, trained on something on the table. A sudden strange sensation traces across Yoongi’s skin. And he looks down at his arm that lies palm up against the table, at the words I think you might be my soulmate in the process of spelling themselves out across his arm in stark contrast and, well. Fuck.

|| I really enjoyed this--its greatest strength is giving JK and Yoongi both believable and understandable motivations and reactions to each other, even if some of the exact plot mechanations seemed a little overblown to me. Maknaeline friendship also really really good. Longish, and sticks the landing--always nice.

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.

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.

it's your heart i wanna live (& sleep) in - Anonymous - 방탄소년단 | Bangtan Boys | BTS [Archive of Our Own]
The first time Jimin sleeps over at Taehyung's, it's an emergency. The other times after? That's a different story.

|| College AU. Doesn't transcend its genre--with all the attendant frat-boy-fuckery and the this-is-probably-actually-an-American-college stuff that most of these show--but Jimin and Tae are really cute. Really good pining: Jimin once has a small breakdown over that Tae is not only platonic soulmate material but BOYFRIEND MATERIAL. I really enjoyed it. (Also! Features a lot of 95-liners from various groups, AND gets all their real names right, which I really, really appreciate. Way less common than it should be.)

tell me about the big bang - thebrotherswinchester - Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens (2015), Star Wars - All Media Types [Archive of Our Own]
The seventh night, Finn gets back late from physical therapy in the medbay. He’s limping maybe a little less, getting used to the new pull of scar tissue over his back, regaining flexibility in his spine. The medics keep telling him he’s pushing it, he doesn’t need to go so fast. Finn ignores them, because this is a war, and he is a soldier, and the Resistance doesn’t have any use for broken boys. 

The seventh night, he walks into Poe’s room to find his mattress right next to Poe’s bunk. Poe is already in bed, cheek smushed into the pillow, breathing slow and deep. D’Qar’s twin moons shine in from the window, pale silver light falling across Poe’s face, his dark hair. One of his arms is half off the edge of the bed, curving toward the floor.

Finn crawls onto his mattress and slides beneath the blankets.

|| I LOVE FINNNNNNNNNNN. This fic is Finn/Poe, and it's lovely and aching, but gOD I love Finn, traumatized, scared, brave, selfish kid with his entire heart to give.

“I don’t even like ice cream, Hoseok.”

“Yeah, I know, hyung,” Hoseok mutters, before putting on an exaggeratedly deep and altogether awful attempt at a Daegu accent. “It gives you headaches.” He doesn’t stop there, eyes browsing the menu above the counter. “I’m Min Yoongi. ‘Taehyung’s Outrageously Amazing Ingenious Sundae’? What’s so outrageous about it? I’ll take a glass of water and a single potato.”

“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.

When their leader Namjoon assigned him the responsibility of looking after the new addition to their coven, Jimin had to admit he was nervous. He was no veteran, being the second youngest in the group up until now, and handling a newly-turned was no walk in the park.

Seeing the newbie curled up in the corner of the room, howling in pain as his fingers curled around his neck and clawed at his chest was unsettling even though Jimin knew this was all perfectly normal.

Oh my god, she thinks.

It's one of those things that happens in slow motion. She's totally and completely aware of what Hara just says -- it's not like dating and Jackson haven't been thrown around before, especially when it comes to getting a rise between the two of them. She's more than aware of her two eonnis staring at her, waiting for her to say something. Then it hits her though, her mouth drying, her tongue pursing nervously against the roof of her mouth, and she starts to press her palms into her knees.

Five times Namjoon notices Yoongi and Jimin's particularly close moments, and five times he tries not be completely, irrationally jealous. He fails miserably.

There is a moment mid-fic where I was like, EXCUSE YOU, WHY ARE YOU MESSING UP MY PINING, THIS IS NOT 10/10 EXECUTION OF THIS TROPE, but then it sticks the landing and I was so happy.

Yeah, Min Yoongi has a crush on Park Jimin. Yeah, he’s maybe being a little bit mean to Jimin until he can figure it out.

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.

Most of the sex doesn't happen until Zelo is 17, I think--but that is Korean 17, so. Heads up. It's largely not explicit, but it is clear it happens a lot.

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.

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?

Ryan Callahan and Dan Girardi: an always-been-girls AU, because the lack of ladies playing hockey + boning in this fandom is sad and depressing.

Yeah, so I know next to nothing about the Rangers. Fuck that, though, because this was awesome. And HOT. Hot like fucking BURNING.

DILF - twentysomething - Teen Wolf (TV) [Archive of Our Own]
Today is Scott's first day of kindergarten and Derek is terrified.

|| AAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHA, so this is pining and domestic and kidfic and obliviousness, so obviously I thought it was the CUTEST THING EVER. Part of me squirmed, at the beginning, because HELLO INAPPROPRIATE TEACHER-STUDENT RELATIONSHIPS, but whatever, this is fic-land. So whatever. o/

try to map the ocean - oflights - Hockey RPF [Archive of Our Own]
He gracefully withstands the accusations of being boring and married, despite the fact that only boring makes sense in this context, but he’s sure the stress of the situation is muddling his English comprehension skills. Jordy claps him on the back and tells him he’s a good bro, which Geno already knew, because he doesn’t know of many bros that would take care of their penguin best friends without dumping them in a zoo or attempting to dress them up and take pictures. He is an excellent bro, and if Sidney tries to bite him again, Geno will remind him of that.

Or: the one where Sidney turns into a penguin, and Geno's life is really hard. (God help me, I am developing a serious Geno problem. He is like--guh. The best.)

It's Complicated - Katarin - Hockey RPF [Archive of Our Own]
It's PK's rookie year and he's not sure what this thing with Carey is. He also doesn't know it's a thing at all. Sometimes PK's pretty dumb.

I really, really enjoyed this. But we all know, don't we, that oblivious is basically my favorite.

A terrible affliction of purple prose. - Chapter 1 - vamoosi - Homestuck [Archive of Our Own]
Kanaya leans in and says, "Rose Lalonde, have you been practicing?"

"Practicing what, Professor Maryam?" Rose asks.

"Being intensely pitiable."

"If I say yes, will I receive extra credit?"

|| UM, YES

Rendezvous Mode - Laylah - Homestuck [Archive of Our Own]
Crackling quiet on the line for a second. "Are you serious?" Jake asks at last. "You've programmed that machine of yours to...?" He trails off but the question mark is audible.

...errrrrrr. More robot porn. Whatever. These two are charming (more charming than in canon? a different type of charming, perhaps).

Gravitational Lensing (Rose/Kanaya, by partingxshot)
It is the fifties; Rose Lalonde is distractingly practiced and perfect; Kanaya has a staring problem.

This seems more about mood than about development, but there's some of that, too. And there's a lovely detail in this that actually makes me want the Gamzee<>Kanaya fic (what? what? what?) that explains how they finally fall for each other, and also Karkat's burgeoning hatemance for a human. ...Suffice it to say, the people in this have character.

How You Survived The War - roachpatrol - Homestuck [Archive of Our Own]
The Novice Mode is... unsettling, to say the least. Perhaps if it had been installed sooner, before the face had taken on such a strikingly human aspect, you wouldn’t have found yourself in this position. Perhaps if it didn’t look so much like Dirk.

AAaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh--

Roachroachroach, why you gotta do me like that. Amazing, amazing Jake character study, that is also just an excuse for pining and ... robot-fucking. Sometimes, I do not even know. :D

Mobius Primary Color Double Reacharound - Chapter 1 - JumpingJackFlash - Homestuck [Archive of Our Own]
Later. Is the time for worrying about that. Now is the time for shielding your eyes so you can open them. The light makes you squint and blink, but it's not really painful. Not at all, in fact, after your eyes have had a few moments to adjust. Which is absurd, because that is definitely daylight shining through shimmering leaves, definitely a pale blue sky above the trees.

    And then you notice your hand.

    "What."

    Your hand is... pink.

An interesting post-Sburb world, where everyone's alive, the races have been mixed, and--romances have been, too. The characterization is lovely (Dave is especially good, in parts), and the dealing-with-feelings is so good for me. But there are not nearly enough ladies! They're playing a pretty clear second-fiddle, and flattened, in this, which was distracting (why? why?), but the story-telling is still quite wonderful, and I'm hoping it's not abandoned.

you ain't generation kill, you ain't shit - Flashing Red Light Means Go, for odetteisodile
"Don't fuck with me," Brad says quietly. He's trying to move back but Nate's not letting him. "I have no idea what I'm doing," Nate admits, feeling stupid and sort of shaky. His lips brush against Brad's neck as he speaks. "But I'm not fucking with you, okay?"

I guess I hadn't saved this before? I've definitely read it, but I re-read it with my breath held. Ugh, so tense and lovely.

fuzzy_paint: masterpost: the other side (is always greener)
OH MY GOD the one where Eduardo is a merman and everything hurts. Holy fuck this is one for ice cream, a warm blanket, and quite possibly best done if snuggles are available after. Ignore the part where he's a MERMAN--think about what it would mean to have that divide, that isolation on both sides, now add a very terrifying and mysterious power system, Ariel's legacy, the inability to keep his skin on, and all the longing that has ever been longed. So fucking recommended. And the vid is NOT. TO. BE. MISSED. See below.
