    Summary

    Yoongi doesn't have any big plans. Just hanging out at the convenience store with his friends. Messing around the basketball hoop by the fountain, maybe. Doing a chill, normal amount of snuggling with the recently hot baby of the group. It's whatever.

    Summary

    Jimin’s heartbeat synced to Namjoon and Yoongi’s in the seconds after the wedding ritual was complete. He can only tell when he focuses that it’s three beats now, instead of one. But it occurs to him, as he’s tripping over a root three feet below the surface, that he’s still alone. Namjoon and Yoongi did this five years ago. Jimin is five years behind them--more, if you count the time they were engaged--and he always will be. And he’s stuck here, and with them, for the rest of his life.

    Summary

    The thing is, Taehyung loves Jimin. He loves all of the boys, but Jimin is special. Jimin is his soulmate, and he’ll tell him everything in the world, except about how he wants to try kissing with someone he can trust. Because Jimin is a lot of things, but he’s not safe. Not for Tae, and not for his heart.

    So he smiles with all his teeth and his eyes nearly shut and probably pulls it off. He’s good at acting, even around this boy.

    (or: Taehyung temporarily projects his feelings for Jimin onto Jin, because that feels less dangerous to his heart. Chicken onesies are involved. They work things out).

    Summary

    There’s someone behind him. This isn’t exactly unusual in the dance studio. They practice with each other, with backup dancers, with camera people. It’s rarer that Jimin doesn’t have eyes on his back at this point.

    But this is not an eyes situation. This is a feet, body, breath situation. And they aren’t goofing around right now, Hoseok is up front with his ‘bah-bah-bah’s and Jimin’s whole face is clenched into a frown as he forces his limbs to follow the steps in his head. The key is in not thinking too far forward. Get caught up in what’s coming up a minute down the line, and you forget what you’re doing right now.

    The key is also in not getting distracted by the sensation of air puffing over the back of your neck. The word Jiminie whispers over a notch in his spine and his vertebrae lock together in response, stomach squirming; his leg forgets what it’s doing and he pitches left instead of sliding, nearly eating linoleum.

    (Or: Jungkook has been especially annoying lately. Jimin can't figure out why)

    I adored this. The balance between funny-sweet-sexy tropeyness, and the care and self-awareness they both try to bring to resolving things (Jimin carefully opening the box labelled Jungkook in his mind and tipping the whole thing upside down, Jungkook being aware of his own annoying behaviour and trying to regulate it, Jimin discarding his romantic movie fantasy in favour of reassuring Jungkook).

    "Average person expresses 3 genuine feelings a day" factoid actually just statistical error. Average person expresses 10 genuine feelings per day. Spiders Seokjin, who lives in a dorm and expresses -10,000 feelings each day, is an outlier adn should not have been counted.

    (Wherein Taehyung woos Seokjin with flowers, cooking, RJ heads, and a potato, and Seokjin... totally doesn't have a meltdown. Ever.)

    Summary

    He lived in the trench; was born at the bottom of it. In the blackness, under the impossible crush of the water. He’d dwelt there his whole life. Surviving. Killing. He’d thought Jimin was one of his own, but the noises—Jeongguk’s kind didn’t make those.

    And that was that, as far as Jimin was concerned. Jeongguk did not return to the trench. He remained by Jimin’s side, and that suited them.

    The others, not so much.

    Summary

    Kim Seokjin loves acting. That's what they'll put in his obituary, probably, right after his family details, because that's the only thing that matters about him. That, and that he's gay, and that his temper snapped one time and ruined his entire career before it had a chance to be what he knows it could have become.

    His last chance to prove himself comes in the form of a reality TV show, a Bachelor-style outing that will show he still has the softness to be a romantic lead. And it's embarrassing, and messy, and full of quirky guys and their weird habits and fame-seeking and secret agendas that he doesn't have the energy to deal with. But it's just a job, and Seokjin never turns down a chance when it's offered, and the biggest comfort of playing the starring role on Destined Hearts is that Seokjin knows his own heart will never be destined for anything but the screen.

    So this question in Taehyung’s heart—what if I ruin it, what if I’ve already ruined it—is one only Jimin can answer, but he still wants to hear what Yoongi has to say about it. Yoongi fell in love with his friend, and it didn’t ruin anything. It’s wonderful.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Note re the tags: the unrequited love doesn't refer to the relationship between Jimin and Yoongi.

    I enjoy angsty pining FWB as much as the next person, but it was also really nice to read the trope as a positive and healing thing here. Although there is still a bit of angst and I definitely cried a little at one point. Overall though it's just a really warm and kind fic.

    The ensemble dynamics are also really good, although there's less ensemble than it seems like there's going to be from the first few scenes - it's mostly yoonmin-focused as it goes on. (Also worth noting: pretty smut-focused.)

    Summary

    Park Jimin works hard, and everyone knows it. His boss likes him, his coworkers adore him, and he knows it's just a matter of time until he graduates from the ranks of the desk farm and into something better. All he has to do is conquer every single feeling of inadequacy he's ever had. Simple enough.

    Job-stealing newcomer Jeon Jeongguk doesn't seem to work for much of anything at all, and he's more than arrogant enough for them both. But he's certainly well-connected, tall and rich and good at everything. Jimin hates him on sight, and by the end of the first week he's sure they're eternal enemies.

    And sure, Jeongguk may be cute, even hot underneath his suits, but Jimin doesn't care about that.

    Not at all.

    A really enjoyable sort of classic enemies-to-lovers office romance. You wouldn't call the characterisation canon - especially for Jungkook - but it's internally consistent, and the emotional and characterisation arcs work well.

    Taehyung’s straightforward, he thinks. A 2 + 2 = 4 kind of guy. He’s just not always sure that his 2’s are other people’s 2’s. Sometimes it seems like they might be 3’s. Or 7’s. But Yoongi’s 2’s are the same 2’s, they’re just in italics, size 8 font, while Taehyung’s are in bold and size 72.

    or,

    People think Yoongi and Taehyung are dating. Taehyung wishes they were.

    Summary

    “You know,” Jimin mumbles quietly, his cheek squished against the cool surface of Jungkook’s comforter. “When I pictured this party going wrong, I thought it’d be something like me getting bodily trapped in the middle of your weird feelings-heavy orgy, or you riding that unicorn pool float down the flooded street in 60 mile-per-hour winds, or maybe Jin trolling the background of a Jim Cantore broadcast in his rainbow Speedo and his cowboy hat.” He clenches his jaw and swallows hard, the action straining his throat. “I didn’t expect-”

    “Taehyung?” Jungkook offers quietly, gaze still glassy with alcohol as he leans forward to rest his chin on Jimin’s shoulder.

    Jimin sighs mournfully, even as his heart rate kicks up. “Definitely didn’t expect Taehyung.”
