    ;-; i was at the store and this song was playing over the speakers and i tried to remember some lyrics so i could search it up later but i can’t find it this is TRAGIC

    HJ @hyunfortunately 5h
    it was in korean and it’s kind of got rock-pop-balladish vibes and the first line of it was “neoneun neo neoneun na” if anyone knows it PLEASE tell me

    Seungmin doesn’t like to interact with other people on Twitter, but the questions seems almost aimed to him. He hits reply and types, “Try Hi Hello by Day6.”

    [Seungmin falls for Hyunjin from 2000 miles away. He expected that it would be inconvenient. He didn't expect quite how much Hyunjin would change his life.]

    Bookmarker's Notes

    i thought this would be a fun socmed au but god it’s SO much more. like...holy fuck. for one, it’s so intensely relatable. like, my high school experience is very different from hyunjin or seungmin’s, but i still understand many of the emotions. it’s such a hard time, and we’re all doing our best, but sometimes it doesn’t feel like enough. and the nostalgia of senior year...i haven’t felt it yet, but this fic makes it feel like i have. on top of that, seungmin is just an incredible character. he is written so well. the scene where he breaks down in front of chan...it hurts so much more because of the contrast from his usual character. and another incredible thing about it is the development of seungmin and hyunjin’s relationship. i have a lot of friends online, and they mean a lot to me, but you can’t deny that there is a difference. i think it’s incredible how they each have their own insecurities and have such a hard time coming together, but in the end it works out and it’s so good. that last chapter especially was just incredible, so emotional and cathartic. you can see that everything is really coming together. they’ve ended up in the same place, they’re actually seeing each other for the first time, and there is so much promise. i started crying during this chapter, because of course i did. it was just so good and so worth it. i can’t wait to read this again.
    and on day6 being the soundtrack for this fic...it works so perfectly. (also, it’s crazy how similar seungmin’s taste is to mine? somehow, better better, AND i need somebody...bless him) their music is just so good. it’s so full of emotion, and there’s really a song for every moment. that’s why I love their music so much, and it fits so well with this. just incredible, all of it.

    holy FUCK. i read this soon after it was posted and thought “huh that was good” but moved on. but i reread it on an impulse today and...WHAT THE FUCK??? i really cannot form any coherent thoughts right now. i can’t explain why this struck me so deeply, but i was reading the ending and suddenly i was sobbing. like, actual tears??? and trouble breathing??? what the FUCK? i read the two it was based on first, of course, and those are also very good, especially the graduation scene. but this one just killed me. there’s just something about goodbyes that makes them hurt me so fundamentally. and the nature of chan’s relationship with joshua and junhui just made this hurt so much for some reason. the fact that they just saved him out of nowhere and were a minor presence in his life for years before finally disappearing with all three understanding that they would NEVER SEE EACH OTHER AGAIN??? pardon me saying this again but WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK. it just hurt me so much.
    ok just a couple quotes that hurt me especially (although the whole ending...with the graduation and everything...is really just so painful):
    “Now, as then, Chan swallows down blueberries and gratitude. Eats his fill.”
    LIKE WHO SAYS THAT??? WHO???
    “Chan doesn’t make wishes, but this—
    The two of them are something near miraculous.”
    ??????????????? WHY
    “Chan knows what he is to them: A responsibility. Temporary.
    And yet also, loved.”
    loved...HE IS A RESPONSIBILITY BUT ALSO LOVED...
    “He doesn’t ask them to stay. That’s not how the two of them work. That’s not how the three of them work.
    Gratitude isn’t a thing Chan can set down and forget. He will live like this forever, with unexpected kindness on the tip of his tongue, with joy running through his heart.”
    GRATITUDE...KINDNESS...JOY...I DON’T EVEN KNOW WHAT TO SAY ANYMORE. AND HIM NOT ASKING THEM TO STAY? JUST ACCEPTING THE FACT THAT HE’LL NEVER SEE THEM AGAIN??? THE WAY THAT THIS HURTS ME WAY MORE THAN IT HURTS ANY OF THEM WHAT THE FUCK
    “Always going, never leaving. Chan turns around, and does the same.”
    ok at first i misread this as “always going, never staying” and i was like “damn goodbye then” but then i reread it and saw my mistake and this is so much better??? they might be gone but they didn’t actually leave...they saved him and they are always there with him because of the impact they had on his life...HIM, SOMEONE ELSE’S GOOD IN THE WORLD...and he’s doing the same?? they are always going to think about him too because this is not the kind of thing you can just forget? i can’t think about this anymore i am in too much pain.
    anyway excuse my rambling but i am Going Through it rn...actually writing this with tears rolling down my face...this is so incredible and it hurts me so much. i can only dream of someday writing something that says so much with so little.
    one of the other bookmarks calls this “the most important thing i’ve ever read” and that’s just it huh...ouch

    Summary

    “It’s great timing that you moved here. Word is you recently married your long distance partner, congratulations."

    Minghao starts sweating. Is it normal to congratulate people on a new marriage, or is his boss suspicious of the serendipitous nature of his visa? He straightens up and tries to arrange his face into something lovestruck.

    “Thanks.” He smiles big. “I really love him. The whole thing was so... “ Clinical. “Romantic.”

    He thinks of how Mingyu slammed the door last night but snuck out early this morning without so much as a note. They haven’t even exchanged phone numbers yet.

    this fic is...so incredible oh my god. genuinely one of the best things i have ever read. minghao is just such an incredibly sympathetic character. the way homesickness and loneliness are portrayed is so achingly real. i just really want to give him a big hug the whole time haha. and the way mingyu and minghao’s relationship slowly develops? all the angsting minghao does over it? perfect. plus all the scenes with mingyu’s friends...the jihan proposal...minghao visiting mingyu at school...the interviews...THE FIRST DATE...fuck it’s so cute and so perfect. this fic just makes you think about things. there’s so much more than romance. really, it’s about life. and that’s what makes it so incredible.

    Summary

    He spends the next few days near losing his mind. Instead of listening in class, he writes a list of positives and negatives about Wonwoo and Jeonghan, and then rips it out, because it feels dumb and reductive to put his feelings into factors like is a good kisser and is a time traveller and I actually know things about him other than the fact that he’s a time traveller. They’re both such different people that it seems impossible to compare them with what he knows so far. It all comes down to one factor, anyway—Wonwoo is his future. He knows that. He’s more or less seen it, with the way Wonwoo knows him so well. Jeonghan is his present, what he can have right now—but at one point or another, that will have to stop. Right?

    or

    Time is a strange thing, but Wonwoo and Jeonghan's presence in his life is even stranger. Between some unpredictable time travel, snapshots of precognition, and a few tough inclines, they figure things out together.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    wow, i’m so in love with this fic. the scope of it is just so massive. you can tell that the author has carefully planned every part of it so that the past and present and future all fit together perfectly. this is easily the best chan-centric thing i’ve ever read (not that there’s a whole lot to choose from...) it’s just so good. i love the idea of meeting someone who goes to the past and someone who can see the future and being the connection between them. i love the way chan, jeonghan, and wonwoo come together. i love the way the story travels through his childhood. i love antagonist seungkwan and the whole idea of him being a star/planet...like, wow. crazy. and i love that last chapter: wonwoo and jeonghan trying to remember something that’s been erased, wonwoo traveling to find chan and fight seungkwan and see all the pieces of their lives, and then chan going through life again without seungkwan at his side. the big picture here is so huge, and it’s all done so well, and that ending is so incredibly satisfying. i want a love like this. without the magic mess, preferably. anyway...katie is so incredibly talented. we’re so lucky to have her and her stories.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    the moment i finished reading this for the first time i bookmarked it and whispered “holy fuck” to myself. i have to describe this as a tour de force. it just...says so much in such a beautiful way. there are things in here about love and identity and family and finding happiness that i have never thought about or found words for before. the jinkook is cute and funny. the minjoon is the main focus and understandably so-it’s written so well, and jimin’s character is definitely done the best out of everyone. but the star of this for me had to be the yoontaeseok...the one thing that consistently gets me is that combination of polyamory and insecurity. this does it so well. i really feel for hoseok, and for everyone else. this feels life changing. i read it expecting something funny and fun like the original crazy rich asians, but this is a million times better. i’m so, so grateful i decided to read this.
