    Summary

    "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)

    Summary

    Jimin’s heartbeat synced to Namjoon and Yoongi’s in the seconds after the wedding ritual was complete. He can only tell when he focuses that it’s three beats now, instead of one. But it occurs to him, as he’s tripping over a root three feet below the surface, that he’s still alone. Namjoon and Yoongi did this five years ago. Jimin is five years behind them--more, if you count the time they were engaged--and he always will be. And he’s stuck here, and with them, for the rest of his life.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    I read the beginning of this one evening while avoiding thinking about my future, where I had no clue what I wanted to do or even Could do. Then I went to bed. I read up till about halfway while procrastinating getting out of bed on a weekend morning. Later that day I took my lunch and a coffee outside on a comfortably breezy day and read the rest.

    I may have teared up a couple times, I'm not completely sure.

    I need you to know this occupied my thoughts consistently the whole time in both a heavy and somehow comforting way. I felt like I was playing Stardew Valley and contemplating a performance of Spring Day at the same time. Not to mention I was listening to bangtan lofi too (when Autumn Leaves came on my mind immediately thought of the Hobi + Jimin relationship and yes I definitely teared up then).

    One of my favourite things about well-written fanfic is the ability to share important thoughts and life lessons in ways that communicate simply and in a relatable manner. I actually took small screenshots of a few different lines in this story because they made me feel like it was something important to remember and the way they were written would translate well beyond the story context. Things about communication and love and trust, both in others and in oneself. I learned things, things I haven't let myself accept, things I've been too afraid to go out and learn on my own in the world. Things I know require real experience to learn fully but just having read this story has given me, if not quite confidence, then at least hope to step forward and Try. It actually helped me decide on something education/career-focused that I'd been too afraid to even contemplate as an option... something I've been struggling with for quite some time.

    So thank you. Thank you for sharing such lovely writing with us. For sharing your insight and wisdom and love. This truly feels like a piece that would be written by a talented person with a shared love and understanding of BTS's art.

    To say this made my day would be an understatement but I hope my previous words have communicated enough how much I appreciate this story.

    Summary

    Jimin is a brownie. There's a lot that comes with the job description-- fixing clothes, keeping the household up and running, tending cattle. And all that would be fine and dandy, if only Jimin liked his work. (He doesn't.)

    Jeongguk is a Nightmare. Literally and figuratively. When Jimin loses his job and gets reassigned to keep Jeongguk's manor running, Jimin isn't afraid in the slightest.

    It doesn't matter that Jeongguk's rumored to be eccentric, brash, and cold because Jimin has a job to do, and then he'll be onto the next mind-numbing assignment. It's going to be fine.

    And then Jimin actually meets him. The reality is so much worse.

    Summary

    Yoongi says, “You keep holding that god damn duck and don’t give it back until you confess.”

    “And you better do it soon!” Seokjin yells from the suddenly half open bedroom door. “I want that ducky back! My showers aren’t complete without him!” 

    (AKA: It takes five best friends and a pink rubber duck to get Taehyung and Jimin to get their shit together and confess their undying love. I mean, it only took them, like, their whole entire lives.)
