"Shouta wants to scream, wants to cry and break things and—why him? Why Shouta? Why is it him who’s lost so many people?"
(or: Shouta wakes up in a hospital, minus a leg and a friend.)
“a kiss,” he says suddenly. he sticks his little legs down, dragging his feet on the ground to stop him from swinging as he looks over at yoongi. “i want a kiss for my birthday.”
yoongi stops swinging, too, giving him a careful look. it only occurs to jeongguk then that maybe yoongi has a girlfriend—or a boyfriend—and asking for a kiss isn’t a good idea. but his heart clenches anyway, and he wants it in the only way five-year-olds can want anything: totally, achingly, with an all-consuming need to have it now.
(or: at five, jeongguk asks his best friend yoongi for a kiss. when he grows up, he learns—sometimes it’s not that easy. and sometimes it is.)
jeongguk takes care of him like this: quietly, letting yoongi falsely believe he’s the one taking care of jeongguk instead. makes it easier, he thinks, to accept it. to be okay with the quietness of it, and the gentleness, and how sometimes—it makes him want to cry.
yoongi holds the dragon at arm’s length, staring at it like he’s never seen a dragon in his entire life, and jeongguk giggles again, muffling it with a hand over his mouth because it shouldn’t be funny, but it is.
min yoongi, the fearless dragon rider, winner of several championships and owner of the ferocious grimfang—terrified of a dragon that fits in his hand and can’t do anything but make a few noises. yoongi has plenty of scars himself from training accidents, crashes, run ins with dragons that don’t like him. but he can’t hold a baby.
“stop laughing at me,” yoongi says finally, sending a glare to jeongguk, who only laughs harder. “it’s—stop it! it’s weird, i don’t like it. it’s so small, how do i know it won’t just like, take a shit in my hand? or try to eat my finger?”
(or: yoongi is a dragon rider and jeongguk is the tamer who raises his dragon’s babies. something else is born along the way.)
Taehyung's date doesn't show. Jimin comes to cheer him up.
Honestly, a date with Jimin will always be better than a date with anyone else. Taehyung knows this, yet he still keeps trying. It’s probably about time to give up.

before him is the boy that taehyung has seen grow for years. before him is the boy whose name is jimin, who tends to his herb garden with love, who cares with such compassion, who hides his magic as it’s a threat to himself, who falls apart before taehyung without shame, who has the brightest smile with the cutest crooked teeth, who looks at taehyung with an emotion in his eyes that taehyung may only imagine to be there, and who is one of the most elegant, ethereal, and endearing person that taehyung has ever met.
before him is jimin, someone taehyung merely wants to be taehyung with. solely himself and nothing more.
