    Summary

    He learns of lots of things that these people say his older self has experienced in the apocalypse: kindness, companionship, strength, family, love, sacrifice; all things they say the older him has provided to them.

     (He's not sure he believes it.)

    They seem to know him too well to the point that it scares him a bit, listing things they couldn't possibly know if they didn't; his hate for tomatoes, his tendency to lie with a straight face, his love for stories; even predicting correctly that his favorite food will be murim dumplings, once he tries them. They try very hard not to overwhelm him, but both the praise and insult they give him remain unchanging, time and time again. 

    The person they describe— it doesn't sound like him. Like anything he could possibly be.

    (And yet, it's a fact that they're here, waiting for that person to come back to them. It's comforting, and frightening at the same time; both an assurance and an expectation.)

    (or: Kim Dokja, and the mortifying ordeal of being loved)

    Summary

    It's a gradual but certain realization, that the words and letters of the story he loves so much— of the story that helped him live until this point— were going to kill him, too. 

    And what a stupid way to go, he thinks. Of all things, for loving a story too much.

    (Even as the years pass by, petals and leaves have collected between the pages of his books, serving as bookmarks for pages he's reread time and time again. The petals get bigger as he flips from front to back.

    He doesn't dare trample on this proof of his love, even as it kills him.)

    (or: Dokja loves a story too much, and coughs up flowers while he's at it. Not much changes.)

    “You’re kidding me,” Sooyoung says. She pulls her black-rimmed glasses off her face, rubs her eyes, and shouts, “He’s twelve?”

    Summary

    A few months ago, the most annoying man in the world, unfortunately also her best friend, had recommended her a video game. Han Sooyoung isn’t much for video games in general, really—she tends to get distracted by them for hours on end and then wastes half the day without having gotten any work done, so she’d sworn off video games for the foreseeable future—but the artwork had looked nice and Kim Dokja had been relentless with his badgering, so Han Sooyoung gave in and got herself a copy.

    The next day, she threw a book at Kim Dokja’s face. “You said it was an RPG! What’s with the romance options!?”
