(Open, Unmoderated, Unrevealed)
"When he woke up, he didn’t know where he was. There was a pulsing kind of pain behind his eyes and he could feel his hair, slick with sweat, sticking to his forehead. His hands felt clammy and his bare arms were covered in goosebumps, accompanied by the gritty feeling of dirt, yet he wasn’t outside. The hum of an air conditioner made him aware that he was, in fact, indoors.
That was the moment he realized where he was: A jail cell."
Alternatively: In which Kim Taehyung is a famous actor/singer accused of murder and tries to clear his name with the help of his manager Kim Namjoon, lawyer Kim Seokjin and a certain delinquent named Jeon Jungkook. Also, he has to deal with the two detectives in charge of his case, Min Yoongi and Park Jimin, along with a shady drug dealer, Jung Hoseok, who probably knows more than he’s letting on.

“Are you looking for a boyfriend, Jeongguk-ah? A potential mate?”
Jeongguk’s chest tightens, and for some reason everything inside of him screams that yes would be the wrong answer. So, instead, Jeongguk just—lies.
“No,” he shakes his head. “Just looking for a good time. Just looking for some stress relief.”
As the car stops in front of a traffic light, Yoongi turns to look at him, eyes gleaming in the dark. “That’s what you’re looking for?”
“Yeah.” Jeongguk swallows heavily, nodding. “If you want to go on dates that’s totally fine t—”
“No,” Yoongi says, looking at him through the strands of his dark hair. “I can’t do the whole—dating, boyfriend—thing. It’s not for me Jeongguk. If that’s what you want, I can’t give it to you. But I can give you what you need. I can give you a good time.”
Jeongguk thinks he can do the whole no strings attached thing when in reality, he can't. And he knows it.
“You know,” Jimin mumbles quietly, his cheek squished against the cool surface of Jungkook’s comforter. “When I pictured this party going wrong, I thought it’d be something like me getting bodily trapped in the middle of your weird feelings-heavy orgy, or you riding that unicorn pool float down the flooded street in 60 mile-per-hour winds, or maybe Jin trolling the background of a Jim Cantore broadcast in his rainbow Speedo and his cowboy hat.” He clenches his jaw and swallows hard, the action straining his throat. “I didn’t expect-”
“Taehyung?” Jungkook offers quietly, gaze still glassy with alcohol as he leans forward to rest his chin on Jimin’s shoulder.
Jimin sighs mournfully, even as his heart rate kicks up. “Definitely didn’t expect Taehyung.”
((Or, Hurricane Party AU where the weather’s bad but the party’s badder.))
"I guess," Jungkook pauses momentarily to inhale a deep, bracing breath, "I would just want you to come to my work events and laugh at my jokes and don't correct people if they imply that we're doing it."
"Having sex, you mean," Jin clarifies gently, and Jungkook chokes on air. If his face was any redder, Jin would insist on taking him to the hospital. Jungkook clears his throat, obviously trying to play off the strangled, choked sound as a casual cough.
"Yes. Doing... sex."
(Hedge Fund wunderkind and Certified Awkward Gay Jungkook needs a sugar baby to show off at work, and Professional Competitive Eater and Objectively Beautiful Human Jin just wants to stop working shitty side-jobs. Fake Sugar Daddy AU. A trope and a half.)
"He doesn't seem okay," Jimin notes, several long gracefully curling strands falling forward as he cranes his head in front of Taehyung's face to get a better look.
"He's fine. He's just a little shaken by your dick," Jin tells him without an ounce of shame, and Taehyung has the presence of mind to cut his eyes sharply in his direction.
"Ahhhh," Jimin hums appreciatively, turning back to Taehyung and fluttering his long lashes. "Well that's okay, honey. Lots of people are shaken by my dick. Granted, it's usually inside of them at the time."
(AU where supposedlystraightboy!tae falls for a pretty drag queen named Minnie and has a pretty chill questioning of his sexuality)
