    Summary

    “don’t you want me to be cool and make friends?”

    “no,” says yoongi, snatching the lunchbox out of jeongguk’s hands and setting it back on the shelf with the others. “humans are despicable creatures and the less you interact with them, the better.”

    jeongguk still hasn’t let go of him, and yoongi glances down at him again to see the boy peering up at him with wide, wide eyes, pout still in place. “i’m a human, hyung,” he says, as though yoongi could ever forget.

    “except for you, baby,” says yoongi, patting jeongguk’s head in hopes of placating him. “humans are despicable creatures except for you. we’ve been through this. now.” he holds the list between the two of them. “what exactly is a calculator?

    (or: yoongi is a three-hundred-year-old vampire and jeongguk is the human child that brings his cold, dead heart back to life.)

    They were best friends. They knew each other more than anyone else. They told each other everything. There weren’t any secrets between them.
    Except, maybe that was all a complete lie.

    Summary

    As superhero stories are always at their core stories about transformation, it is interesting to examine how the character development of All Might/Yagi Toshinori subverts the idea that a hero must be willing to be self-sacrificing to the extreme to the point of dying for the common good, instead choosing to live in order to raise his kid and deal with his problems.

    Or: How All Might choosing to become Dadmight changes his own superhero arc

    Summary

    “The first few times I didn’t mind all that much, but now it’s all the time and I’m starting to dread starting conversations.” Cornelia says, almost laughing.

    Dan peels at the corner of the crisp bag, creating a small tear before slowly pulling it apart.

    “It’s really that constant?”

    Summary

    “i’m jeongguk, by the way. jeon jeongguk,” he says, scratching at holly’s ears.

    “min yoongi,” says the man—jeongguk likes the way he says it, syllables easy on his tongue. likes everything about yoongi already, despite only knowing him for a few minutes. and yet—it feels so much longer. he has a strange sense of déjà vu as he stands there outside of the record store with yoongi, petting his dog.

    after a moment, he ventures to ask, “have we met before?”

    Summary

    he feels more than hears jeongguk get onto the ground beside him, their shoulders and thighs pressed together. yoongi finally opens his eyes, turning his head to look at jeongguk again with a bit of a funny grin on his lips. earlier, he thought that it was too easy not to pretend. now he’s wondering if they’re really doing this for anyone else’s benefit, if anyone even cares as much as they’re making it out to be.

    “what happens if a car comes?” asks yoongi.

    the light changes.

    “we die,” says jeongguk.

    and then—they both start giggling. maybe it’s the alcohol or the adrenaline from doing this—re-enacting some stupid scene from a love story, risking their lives for it. but it’s what jeongguk wants, and yoongi knows without having to think that he’ll do anything to give jeongguk what he wants. to make him happy, to hear him laugh like that, echoing into the night.

    (or: jeongguk wants a love like in the movies & yoongi just wants to spite his ex-girlfriend. they’re both very, very good at pretending, until they’re not pretending at all.)

    Summary

    “He was defending you against me,” Jimin murmurs, which makes Taehyung pause. “When you were incapacitated, did you notice? He stopped when you weren’t vulnerable anymore.”

    Taehyung glances back at the wolf, which is staring out into the woods now like it’s not paying attention, but its ears treacherously move with every sound Jimin makes. “Like …” Taehyung turns to look at his friend, amusement and confusion warring on his face. “Like an alpha?”

    Jimin blinks up at him gravely. “Right, like he was defending his alpha.”
