    ‘Because–’ Yoongi starts, but realises his tone is loud and harsh and that’s giving Namjoon exactly what he wants. So he takes a deep breath and another elongated sip of whiskey before starting again. ‘Look he's a classical musician, right? They're always dickheads. Just because their parents paid through the nose to get someone to teach them “Every Good Boy Deserves Food”. You can’t just buy talent. Fucking wankers.’

    'Wait, didn't you use to take piano lessons?' Namjoon smirks.

    'Yes, but I’m a wanker with talent.'

    Namjoon nods. ‘I know. I’ve walked in on you too many times. Impressive.’

    Summary

    For the first time since Carla told him about it, he felt nervous. Sure, the toads seemed to have miraculous technology, but… What if they couldn’t heal him? What if he was just past the point of no return?

    Kitt wasn’t sure that he could survive it if he got his hopes up over nothing.

    And what if it worked? Would he even know how to walk? The last time he stood on his feet had been… almost ten year ago. What would he do? Could he get a job?

    And if he tested positive for whatever they wanted? What the hell then?

    He got dizzy just thinking about the possibilities, none of them looking easy. They were almost at the ramp leading to the open, gaping door.

    “Well, you brought me this far, we might as well go inside,” he said, sounding a lot more confident than he felt.

    I have nothing to lose - he reminded himself. That was true at least.

    Summary

    Hoseok is in his first year of university with a scholarship for track and field. He’s always enjoyed running, and it's a fast way to make friends, so why not? However, it’s only once he’s joined that he discovers the problem. Seokjin is also in track and field, specifically pole vaulting.

    He knows Seokjin primarily as Namjoon’s boyfriend; the tall, broad shouldered guy who wears soft sweaters and has a window squeegee laugh. He was cute, sure, but as far as he could tell, the guy wasn’t his type.

    This Seokjin, though…the one who’s apparently ripped, who’s torso bends and flexes in mesmerizing ways as he arches over the bar, who’s sexy as fuck with sweat dripping down his face…he’s a different story.
