    Summary

    Summary

    Lower Bavaria, 13th century.
    Son of Henry XIII, Louis III (or Len, as he likes to be called) is about to marry Isabelle. As any other marriage in royal medieval Europe, Len has seen her only twice, to say that much. But there is a problem. A girl who's been visiting his dreams since he can remember. And he won't stop until he finds her.

    ((This is the first part of a long series slightly based on my favorites stand-alone songs by Hitoshizuku-P x Yama, so I'm not sure if it's an AU? Anyway, there will be some worldwide History compliant facts as you can see, but it ain't boring, I swear,,))

    Summary

    “Mmm… but what was it that made you decide to come back?” Seokjin rephrases.

    Taehyung glances at Jungkook, and deliberately, his lips twitch up into a smirk, eyes darkening just a little bit. “I’m a human after all. Foolish. Figuring out my intentions shouldn’t be rocket science.”

    For a moment, the other three in the room just stare at him. Taehyung doesn’t let the stares unnerve him, only deciding to cock his head to one side, eyebrow raised as the silence drags on. And then finally it breaks when Jimin shakes his head before letting out a true blue giggle, “well. He’s interesting at least.”

    -

    (or: Jungkook is a god, Taehyung just wants to be his friend. They both end up as something more.)

    Summary

    Jungkook disappears into the water one day. A different, new Jungkook comes out.

    "A demon?" He repeats. "Couldn't be farther from the truth. Demons can't possess humans for more than a week."

    "Then what are you?" Jimin asks desperately, "Why the hell are you in Jungkook's body?"

    Not-Jungkook was looking increasingly petulant now. "I'm still Jungkook. Just... improved."
