    A dubiously steampunk fantasy AU. Not actually very steampunk at all.

    “I’ll do it!” Jungjung said, arm straight in the air as though he was competing with any number of people for the honour. “I’ll do it, Eungi! I can teach you.”

    This is unresolved, but it's so cute - the good kind of open shippiness that implies future possibilities. (Trainee 'verse, unclear if it's canon as such.)

    Will probably be sadder after Friday's eliminations.

    Rarepairs can't rely on the groupthink consensus for why they're drawn to each other, and this doesn't - it puts in the time to give depth to the dynamic between them and show the way they work together and what makes them fall for one another, which I love. The fic also feels really fond of both Hoseok and Seokjin.

    Summary

    Seokjin is an actor who MCs a variety show called Eat Jin. His show's successful-- but like every other show on the circuit, he's never managed to book superstars Bangtan Sonyeondan, who are notoriously picky about their variety appearances.

    He never expects that his shot at getting BTS on his show will come when it turns out BTS's Suga is a fan of his acting.

    This is lovely; the way Yoongi's crush is written is so sweet.

    Summary

    Curled up next to the gutter is a brown dog, fur matted down from the rain, shivering with its eyes closed. It's managed to at least keep its head dry, tucked beneath the metal spout releasing water into the streets, but it looks cold and tired and something in Yoongi's chest clenches.

    The dog barely reacts when he picks it up and strokes the dry, curly fur on his head, just lets out a little huff and a whine. It’s bigger than it looked from a distance, a poodle or some kind of poodle mixed breed, and he was correct in guessing it didn’t have a collar. If it were awake it might be able to sit on one of his arms and lean against his chest. As it is, weak and shaking, he has to carry it with both his arms. He tucks its body beneath his cloak—not a great solution with how soaked it is, but at least it’ll be protected from the wind—and hugs it to his chest.

    Not very finished-feeling, but cute! (Author seems confused about Yugyeom's height.)

    Summary

    When Jainan arrived on Iskat to represent his home planet in a diplomatic marriage to Imperial Prince Taam, he was naïve enough to hope the match would work. Taam knew better. Five years later, his confidence shattered, Jainan is released when Taam dies in an accident, only to be faced with another marriage to help salvage his treaty. Jainan understands how the real world works now; but Prince Kiem - the cheerful, scandal-prone darling of the Iskat celebrity magazines - keeps breaking all the rules he's learned.

    Planetary arranged-marriage princes with an achy lovely abuse-recovery arc.
