“You know I'm straight,” he said, zipping his pants.
L.Joe wiped his mouth with the back of his hand. “You say that every time.”
After engaging in some closet activity and being overheard, L.Joe is dragged into gay rumors, that, while they threaten to take Teen Top apart, also seem to work as a dating ad inside the kpop community.
A silly, fun, occasionally a little angsty and scary, pretty unhinged celebration of kpop and sex, and most importantly of silly sexy handsome L.Joe. Sort of episodic with overarching character development/story.
This is a one-shot based on a photo of Henry trying to kiss Donghae on stage I randomly stumbled upon years ago. I tried to use the "photo" idea as a concept, which is why each paragraph is so short, like photos of instances. Ah that sounds pretentious. Anyway, it's for my friend who is a big SuJu fan :)
[Donghae gestured in Henry's direction. “The kid, um, do you remember when we talked about...” he paused just long enough. “Santa?”
Siwon was a statue for a moment, thinking, then his eyes widened, his mouth opened in a scandalized O.
“No, no,” Donghae hurried to stop him. “But the kid, he said,” he started laughing again, pulling the hood down tighter around his head. “He was talking about his chimney,” he snorted.]
[For a long time, he'd been the one worrying and doubting and feeling conflicted but had returned anyway like a bee to a honey pot. By the time he'd settled with his choices and realized that for him there was no going back, Eunhyuk had started worrying, each time they were together looking more and more torn. Like a pendulum going one way, then swinging back, they'd somehow missed each other. Or, if you wanted to be positive which Donghae tried to be, when one had started to fear and have doubts, the other had managed to be strong and hold on. Back and forth, endlessly.]
Through all the EunHae I've seen, there's not one specific moment that stood out or is used as inspiration for this story, rather, it's a feeling, like a red thread through it all. Love and friendship and sexuality are complex, great and terrible, that's what I thought. But at the same time it seemed so simple. Too simple for a grand long story, too complex for a short sweet. Perhaps all I can do is capture a few moments and let it be what it is.
TAEMIN - Friendship
Maybe he wanted to ask me to shut up about what I'd seen. Somehow, that'd feel much worse. It would be a final betrayal if he doesn't even trust me to have a shred of sense. But so far, he hasn't said a word.
HYUK - Desire
I see emotions passing through his eyes, although he manages to keep them off his face. Whoever he met with tonight, whoever his lips were on before they were here with me, that person wouldn't be able to see it. Wouldn't know him as well as I do. Right here he's mine.
RAVI - Passion
Not too long ago, there was another person who turned out the most beautiful I've ever seen him, one evening. An accidental harmony; maybe those are the most beautiful because there's no intention, no human motive, just the feeling. The moment had been perfect, but the aftermath complex.
KAI - Love
I came here to be seen. I worked this hard and sacrificed everything to be seen, and yet I have this gnawing feeling sometimes that nobody really sees me. That maybe I worked too hard, so I didn't know how to just be me anymore. Whenever he says that cheesy line, you're so beautiful, I feel like I'm seen, and I find the person that I sometimes lose sight of; myself.
[”So when we started pretending to like you, to make you choose between us...”
”Pretending,” Jungkook said, his voice sounding choked up.
I love you, echoed inside Taehyung's head, pointlessly. ”Yeah, it was just a game,” he said. ”You can ask Jimin.”
Jungkook dropped his toothbrush and left.]
Jimin and Taehyung's plan to play a prank on Jungkook leads to something else entirely, but eventually crashes and burns to make way for Bangtan's debut, the stage, the fans, the music. Tae and Kook find their own ways to deal with the fallout, but Taehyung's filming for Hwarang and his new celebrity friends take things to a new boiling point.
