    Summary

    "Hey," Uenoyama spits, throwing his current guitar pick at Akihiko's head. It soars through the air, its sleek glossy red finish catching the fluorescent lights overhead before it pings off Akihiko's shoulder. The other man doesn't even bother trying to dodge it, just arches his eyebrows and grins, just a little. "I didn't come up with this alone! Mafuyu, tell him!"

    "The bit before where the chorus goes is based off the riffs Haruki was warming up with that last week." Mafuyu also adds, "he let me pick out the chords for the opening too. Does that count?"

    "Congratulations," Akihiko says dryly, ignoring Mafuyu's statement completely, "you've made him even cockier than he already was."

    "He has not," Uenoyama shouts, the pitch of his voice climbing an octave, loud enough to make Haruki wince.

    Mafuyu gives Akihiko the same smile that always makes Hiiragi snarl about how he's a little shit and answers, "that's okay, I like it when he's cocky."

    Uenoyama makes a noise that is only barely within the range of human hearing, carefully lifts his guitar from over his head to drop it in a guitar stand, and then drops on the ground to curl up in a ball.

    Summary

    The Grim Reaper, they called him. He was the weird kid in school who knew exactly when someone’s mother was about to die. They didn’t believe him when he’d said it, and they didn’t believe him when he said he wasn’t a psychic, and they didn’t believe him when he said he didn’t cause her death.

    The Grim Reaper, they still sometimes call him. Legendary trial lawyer who became known for weeding out the bad guy no one else suspected and putting them in prison. It was almost like he had a sixth sense for it. Like no one was safe from him. Like the black cloud of death still follows him around and no matter how much he tries to shake it off, it doesn’t let go.

    Seokjin wonders at what point death had stopped following him around, and at what point he’d started to become death itself.


    in which Seokjin can see everyone's lifespan floating above their heads, numbers steadily counting down to their deaths. the numbers never change, or so he thought.

    Summary

    Kim Taehyung lives a happy existence, free of worry and full of joy, and as a psychology major he definitely knows how rare that is. His biggest concerns are unannounced quizzes, crafting love stories around him out of the raw potential of the human soul, and sparring with his long-time friend and soul-opposite Min Yoongi. It's incredible to him how easily the world falls at his feet, but he'll always use his powers for good.

    And college is a time for experiences and new challenges, but when changes appear on his placid horizon, new people and drama and even the potential for his own heart to twist around another person, he wonders if his happiness had always depended on things staying exactly the same.

    Summary

    Jeongguk and Yoongi write each other too many thank you cards, fall asleep on the same beds, kiss up against windows, grow purple flowers, and hold the universe together with their love.

    Not necessarily in that order, but, like. Kind of in that order.
