  3. Summary

    chiaroscuro: the interplay of darkness and light.

    --

    “We’re called guardians,” Kuro says. “Over time, people have had different names for us, but it really all comes back to that. We’re shifters, shaper-changers… the name doesn’t really matter. What does is that we’re supposed to keep the two kinds of magical forces in the world balanced.” He rattles this off with a roll of his eyes, as though it’s something he’s heard many times over.

    Kenma thinks back to the curling snake made of shadows, to Sugawara’s words: People who shine brightly attract a lot of darkness.

    “Shadows and light,” he says, not quite a question.

    Kuro nods approvingly. “Basically, yeah. There’s a bit more to it than that—shadow magic is born of independence, of isolation and loneliness. Light magic is connections, the relationships between people. Most people have a low dose of both, go through their entire lives not realizing there’s magic in the world.”

    “But not you,” Kenma prompts.

    “Unfortunately.”

    Summary

    It sounds like the worst plot to a Korean drama Seokjin has ever heard of, he knows this, but the only thing he can think of to save him when he's faced with deportation is marriage.

    Enter Kim Namjoon, his devastatingly handsome employee who also happens to be the most infuriating person Seokjin has ever met. Mix in a romantically charged weekend in Hawaii, and many contemplative conversations with one Min Yoongi, and Seokjin soon realizes that he's fucked.

    And the dimpled man of his nightmares has everything to do with it.

    // Or: The Proposal AU where Seokjin forces a fake engagement on Namjoon and it turns out better than expected.

    Summary

    Namjoon didn't expect to run into the TA from his philosophy class at the gay bar Taehyung and Jimin drag him to, he really didn't expect him to look this nice outside of class, and he really, really didn't expect to have a crush on him.

    It's going to be an interesting semester.
