penguin leader: we all know how fast they’re gonna go by

snow flower: that’s not something we can control

snow flower: the only thing we can control is making these months count and having the best time of our lives while we can

snow flower: yeah we can hate on ymc and our shitty management

snow flower: and yeah not everything is wonderful all the time

snow flower: but i like to think that /usually/ the good outweighs the bad

my niel: are you okay i heard you crying

my niel: please talk to me?

my niel: i’m worried

my hoonie: and here i thought i was a quiet crier

my niel: what happened

my niel: can i come to you

my hoonie: yes please

Chapter Text

“Jihoon?”

The smaller boy heard the door shut with a click, but made no effort to move. He felt the mattress dip and he scooted closer to the edge to make room.

“Jihoon.”

Daniel shuffled closer, tucking his legs under the blanket, worriedly looking over his boyfriend who was curled up in a ball, turned away, his face hidden away from him. Jihoon sniffled and his shaky breaths were an obvious indicator that he had been – was still – crying.

“Oh, babe, what happened?”

Daniel tentatively reached forward to place a hand on the younger’s shoulder. He was thankful that Jihoon didn’t try to push him away, but was a bit alarmed when Jihoon let out more soft sobs upon contact.

“Jihoonie?”

Jihoon inhaled and wiped at his eyes before turning towards Daniel. Even in the dark, Daniel could tell that Jihoon’s eyes were bloodshot, irritated from the tears and Jihoon’s fingers fiercely rubbing against them.

Daniel adjusted himself to lie next to the younger, leaning in so that their breaths mingled slightly, their eyes meeting as Daniel worriedly searched for the reasons why Jihoon seemed so distraught.

Jihoon moved closer, feeling the need for more of Daniel’s warmth and presence. Daniel obliged by wrapping an arm around Jihoon’s waist.

“Sorry.”

“No, hey, I’ve got you,” Daniel said, softly. “What’s wrong?”

Jihoon tightly clutched the fabric of Daniel’s shirt in his hands. “I don’t want to lose you.”

Daniel rested his chin gently on Jihoon’s head, whispering, “What brought this on? You’re not going to lose me.”

Jihoon sniffled. “What’s gonna happen after we disband?” Jihoon’s voice fell to an airy whisper, barely audible, terrified that just saying it out loud would bring the end of the year faster than ever.

There it was. The dreaded D word.

Daniel held the boy in his arms closer. “Nothing,” he said with a sad smile. “Nothing is gonna happen between us.”

Jihoon inhaled with a shaking breath. “How can you be so sure?”

And Daniel pondered for a moment because Jihoon was right to be doubtful. Hardly anything in this industry was guaranteed, let alone a blossoming relationship between two soon-to-be-again trainees from different companies.

Tragically terrible companies, at that.

Daniel felt a chill run through his body, suddenly scared that someone who deserved the world could possibly end up in the dungeon of Maroo, his shining spirit left to dim away into the shadows of being a has-been idol.

Kang Daniel wasn’t stupid. He knew Wanna One was one of the top groups right now. He knew that he and Jihoon were lucky enough to be among the more popular members.

But he also knew, and he knew that Jihoon knew, that once Wanna One was over, there was no guarantee that the momentum would carry them to stardom again. It was absolutely horrifying that so much potential, not just theirs, but everyone in Wanna One, had so many chances to be lost.

It was a hard truth to swallow for everyone involved.

And this was one of the reasons why the D word never came up. They all tried so hard to avoid talking about it. The uncertainty could crush them.

“Because we’ve made it this far.”

Jihoon remained quiet, so Daniel continued.

“Just look at our Minhyun-hyung, Jihoonie,” Daniel said. “We all saw how broken he was at the finale.”

Jihoon nodded. He had tried to comfort his precious Minhyun hyung that day, but he honestly didn’t think he did a good job. Minhyun was absolutely distraught at having to be separated from his brothers, and from Jonghyun. It was the first time he had ever seen Minhyun, proud, talented, beautiful Minhyun cry, his spirit shattered when none of the other Pledis trainees made it into the group.

How did he do it?

“And yet his relationship with Jonghyunie-hyung is as strong as ever,” Daniel said, his deep voice laden with warmth and admiration. “They still see each other every now and then, and I know they talk to each other whenever they get the chance. I trust that we’ll be just like them.”

Jihoon shut his eyes and nodded against Daniel’s chest, the small movements sending waves of affection through the older boy. “I want to believe that, too,” Jihoon said, muffled against Daniel’s soft sweetly-scented shirt.

“It’s just hard,” Jihoon sighed. “It’s so. Damn. Hard.”

Daniel pressed his lips to Jihoon’s crown, placing a soft kiss.

“I’m going to miss everyone. I’m going to miss you.”

Me too. Daniel thought.

I’ll miss you the most.

“I wish I could make it easier, Jihoon-ah,” he confessed, his own voice starting to crack and become watery. Damn it, he didn’t want to cry. Not when Jihoon needed him to be strong.

Jihoon pulled back just slightly, enough to stare up into Daniel’s eyes. He offered a faint smile, and leaned forward once more to kiss Daniel squarely on the lips.

“You do,” he said, with overwhelming sincerity. “Just by being here.”

If only time could stop for a little bit, Jihoon thought, he would stay in Daniel’s embrace for just a bit longer.

They’d be together for a little bit longer.

“Thank you…”

“Lin-ah, I’m done,” Seongwoo said, stepping out of the bathroom in fresh clothes, bare-faced, glad to be rid of the musty odors of the airport and the suffocating texture of his makeup. With his teeth brushed and his face squeaky clean (and hydrated, of course), he was ready for bed.

“Okay.”

Guanlin quietly gathered his things and took heavy steps into the bathroom, shutting the door with a click. Seongwoo opened his carrier and placed his dirty clothes in a spare plastic bag before climbing under the covers. He sighed as his body sunk into the mattress, suddenly feeling aware of the soreness he had been feeling all day to the point where it started to feel numb.

The rushing sounds of water melted in the background, creating ambient white noise. Seongwoo was glad for the quiet after a night of constant excitement and concert jitters. He reached for his phone to check through updates, replying LOL to a dumb meme one of his friends had sent him.

As he mindlessly scrolled through some posts on Naver, Guanlin stepped out of the shower after what seemed like minutes, and Seongwoo caught sight of his pajamas in the corner of his eye.

“Good night, Guanlin.”

Guanlin dove under his own covers, grunting a wordless reply.

Seongwoo thought the youngest member hadn’t heard him properly and said once again, “Good night, Guanlin.”

There was a pause, after which Seongwoo was able to hear a faint reply, “Good night, hyung.”

Thinking the younger was just tired after a long day of travel, Seongwoo let it go, closing his eyes to hopefully get more than two hours of sleep tonight.

Except he didn’t.

Curse his body to fail him when he had the perfect opportunity to catch up on sleep. He should’ve known this would happen; he never fell asleep easily in different places. It had taken him an entire week to get used to sleeping at the Produce 101 dorms.

He groaned quietly so as not to wake Guanlin up. He figured if he couldn’t sleep, he would at least try to be productive. Listen to music, watch some videos, monitor his fancams….

Wait.

 

Was that crying?

Alarmed, he sat up turning to stare at the figure huddled on the other bed. He strained his ears and was even more alarmed to hear soft sniffles, almost like whimpers, coming from their beloved maknae. He cautiously pushed the covers off and padded over to the other bed, reaching a hand out to rest on Guanlin’s shoulder.

“Hey. Guanlin.”

Guanlin’s sobs silenced for a moment, the tall teenager rubbing his eyes while feeling ashamed at having been caught (and even worse, possibly waking up his tired teammate).

“Hyung,” he choked out. “I woke you, didn’t I?” he mumbled, and added, “I’m sorry. I didn’t mean to wake you up.”

“Hey, no, it’s okay. I couldn’t sleep,” Seongwoo said, rubbing the younger boy’s shoulder in soothing circles. “Can I ask what’s wrong?”

Guanlin stilled for a moment, as if recollecting his thoughts, reorganizing the emotions that had bubbled forth in the middle of the night.

“It’s nothing…” Guanlin sighed heavily. “I just…had a rough day, that’s all, hyung.”

“You shouldn’t hold onto negative feelings, Lin-ah,” Seongwoo chided gently. “You don’t want to hurt yourself when it gets to be too much.”

He continued, “Here, tell me what’s up. I can listen,” he said, rubbing gently on the younger’s shoulder.

Guanlin breathed out a sigh and relaxed the tension in his muscles, but kept his face hidden from his hyung.

“My sister called,” he started. “She asked if I knew my dad was sick and I said no.”

Seongwoo nodded with a hum.

“He’s fine. It’s just the cold, but it hurts when he coughs.” Guanlin paused. “I guess he didn’t want me to worry. That’s not what I was upset about.”

Guanlin exhaled slowly, trying to steady his breath before continuing. “One of the stylists yelled at me earlier.”

Seongwoo tensed, his mind racing, Who was it? What did they say? No one gets to hurt our maknae like that, I should –

“It was dumb. I was in the way and they shoved me a little, but I think she was just stressed with so many of us there. It wasn’t the best makeup session I’ve had,” Guanlin muttered. “I don’t know.”

“It’s the little things,” Guanlin was rambling now. “They all add up like you said. And then when someone says the wrong thing, it could all tip over.”

Seongwoo hummed, understanding completely. In their line of work, image was everything. One wrong slip could easily tear down everything you’ve ever worked for. It was a constant tightrope act, and Guanlin had it the hardest being the foreigner maknae of Wanna One.

“I overheard her talking to the other stylists before we left, and maybe I imagined it, but I don’t think she said nice things about me, hyung. It’s…stupid, but I’ve been feeling horrible ever since.”

“Guanlin, you—”

“Hyung, you know I don’t deserve to be in Wanna One. Everyone knows,” Guanlin said, his words drenched with bitterness.

Words Seongwoo never wanted to hear again.

“Guanlin…” Seongwoo had some choice words for him, but the younger kept going.

“Jisung hyung keeps saying I deserve better but I never felt that way. I can’t afford to think that way. If anyone deserved better, it’s Sungwoon hyung. Or you, Seongwoo hyung. Or Jihoon hyung, really anyone else,” Guanlin said, miserable. “Not me.”

“My Korean is still lacking. I’m awkward. I can’t dance as well as the others, or rap as well as the others. I can’t express myself correctly on shows. I’m never the member fans pick as their bias. So why am I here?”

“Guanlin, stop,” Seongwoo said, sternly this time. “You cannot degrade yourself like this, it’s not healthy. Look at me.”

The maknae turned slowly to face his hyung, sullen expression painted over his features, avoiding meeting his eyes for fear he would burst out crying again.

Seongwoo gazed over the younger, taking in again just how young he was.

Six years ago, I would’ve never imagined to be where he is now.

“Guanlin, you do deserve better. Other companies would thrive over having a foreign member. Look at EXO and the opportunities Yixing-sunbaenim has right now. Or Twice and their promotions in Japan.  Listen to me, it is not your fault.”

“Guanlin, you are one of the strongest people I’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting. Trust me when I say that I am honored to be in Wanna One with you and that I am happy that I can be your Seongwoo hyung. I can’t imagine doing what you did at your age. Running to another country to pursue my dreams? Learning a completely different language? Leaving behind my family and friends? Guanlin, you are fucking amazing.

Guanlin’s eyes began to water, and he tucked his face into his pillow, embarrassed to be crying in front of another hyung.

Please stop thinking you don’t deserve to be with us,” Seongwoo said, almost pleading. “It hurts us when you hurt. You are precious to us, and we care about you. You understand that, right?” Guanlin nodded.

“We all know that we don’t have all the time in the world to be together, so let’s make our time worth it. Let’s not keep things from each other, okay?”

Guanlin nodded again, sniffling, and Seongwoo fawned internally.

“Now, come on. Give me a hug,” Seongwoo opened his arms wide with a goofy smile. Guanlin sat up and crawled the short distance to his hyung, diving into the warmth and comfort of Seongwoo’s arms.

“I’ll always be here to listen,” Seongwoo said, softly. “Don’t ever think you’d be a burden to me or any of the other hyungs. We’re here for you, Guanlin.”

Guanlin nodded against the crook of Seongwoo’s neck, humming a reply. “Thank you, hyung,” he said, voice filled with warmth.

“Now,” Seongwoo pulled away, grinning. “Let’s try to get some rest, and tomorrow we’ll have fun exploring Japan. I highly doubt we'll be able to walk around without being followed,” Seongwoo muttered, “but at least it’s something. Cool?”

Guanlin smiled, the twinkle reaching his eyes again, humming in reply. He dove in for another hug and mumbled, “I love you, hyung.”

Seongwoo smiled. “Love you, too, Lin-ah.”

***

“Jaehwan?”

Minhyun hesitantly knocked on the closed door to the practice room. It was nearing 8:00 p.m., which meant the trainers had all gone home for the night. A handful of trainees occupied the other practice rooms, and Minhyun could hear the singers belting and rapping their hearts out from a few doors down.

Although faint, he picked up the sad guitar strings being plucked from the inside, quieting down to silence in response to Minhyun’s knocking. The singular window was covered with Jaehwan’s jacket, isolating the singer even more from the outside world.

According to Sungwoon (who just so happened to be up at that time), Jaehwan hadn’t come back to the dorm until 3:00 in the morning. Wanna One had a schedule starting at 7:00, which meant Jaehwan was running on four hours of sleep and an empty stomach apart from maybe a pack of ramen. Naturally, after their “argument”, Jaehwan had avoided the other members as best he could, and even some of the staff had picked up on it (but a quick word from their manager had them chuckling quietly off to the side). After their activities had ended for the day, Jaehwan didn’t even stop by their dorm to rest; he just locked himself in the practice room again.

“Jaehwan, I know you’re in there. Talk to me?”

He heard a faint thump on the door and guessed that Jaehwan was leaning back on it.

“Go away, hyung,” Jaehwan rasped out, his voice slightly sore from singing (and crying).

“No, I need to talk to you. The others are worried about you.”

Jaehwan scoffed bitterly. “Yeah. Sure.”

Minhyun pressed a palm to the door. “Come on, Jaehwan, don’t be like this. We just want to make sure you’re okay.”

Jaehwan continued to play, another sorrowful melody being born from his fingertips. “I’m okay, hyung. Now will you leave me alone?”

Minhyun sighed, slowly becoming desperate. “Have you eaten?”

Jaehwan stopped playing again, as if he was contemplating lying to the elder even though Minhyun knew the answer. “I’m not hungry.”

“Now I know that’s a damn lie. When did you last eat something that wasn’t a snack?”

If Minhyun strained his ears, he would’ve heard Jaehwan push a half-opened bag of chips further away from the door.

“Let me in.”

Jaehwan, too tired to argue, opened the door slightly, peeking out to glare at his teammate through the crack before letting the door catch in Minhyun’s hand. Minhyun almost let out a sigh of relief. They were making progress.

“Are you here to lecture me?” Jaehwan asked, sitting down on the opposite side of the practice room. “On my birthday?” he sneered.

Minhyun held back a laugh. Petty Jaehwan was still cute.

“No, I’m not,” he said. “I’m just doing my job as your teammate.” He stared disdainfully at the bag of chips lying haphazardly to the side.

“Right. Of course.” Jaehwan turned back to the guitar, playing the same notes as before.

Minhyun was walking on eggshells. The other Wanna One members had done a good job of making Jaehwan feel like shit the entire day. (Sewoon had even shared a screenshot of an angry rant Jaehwan had sent him earlier, which brought a few laughs out of the members.) The braver members, i.e. Jihoon, Seongwoo, and Sungwoon, made it obvious that they were “angry” with Jaehwan whenever he was in the room by glaring or outright scowling at him when he came close to them. Minhyun was part of the “I’m not dealing with this shit” group and just avoided Jaehwan whenever he could, which was extremely difficult during their schedules.

It was a tiring day for all of them.

“Look, Jaehwan…” Minhyun started and earned a glare from the younger, forcing him to stop. He was going to go into a spiel about how the members were just stressed and Jaehwan’s outburst had set fire to the gasoline, but seeing Jaehwan’s reddened eyes that looked on the verge of another waterworks show sharply diverted his choice of words.

“Uh…you need to eat,” he finished lamely. “Do you want to go get something with me?” Please say yes, oh my God. Anyone could tell Jaehwan wasn’t in the mood to do anything except mope, but Minhyun kept pushing. “I’ll pay~”, he said with a cheeky smile, knowing the golden rule that the only thing better than food, was free food.

Jaehwan flared his nostrils, but chuckled – Yes, good! This is good! – “You drive a hard bargain.” He set his guitar to the side, his fingertips becoming a little sore by now. He leaned back against the wall, closing his eyes for a moment before opening them to stare pointedly at the other man. “Just so you know,” he began, “I wasn’t completely in the wrong.”

No argument there, Minhyun thought, but he had to play the part. He silently beckoned the other to continue, already guessing what Jaehwan would say.

“Fine, I admit that blowing up and attacking you guys wasn’t cool, and…” He sighed, clearly reluctant, but willing to be the bigger person. “I promise I’ll apologize for it later.” He fiddled with his fingers in his lap, the nervous energy coming forth in waves. He flicked his gaze back to Minhyun (who almost flinched).

“But you know, it also wasn’t cool for you all to act like I was the fucking plague today. Especially on my birthday?” He scoffed. “Extra not cool. You know, the only ‘Happy Birthday’ I got today was from Sewoon, so pardon me for being a bit of a bitch.” He paused before quickly adding, “And the fans, too, of course.”

“Right. Makes sense…” Minhyun muttered. God, why did they send him to do this? Why couldn’t they send Seongwoo or Sungwoon?

“I dunno, I guess I just felt super insecure that day and then when you all did that, I just…felt attacked?” Jaehwan laughed, even though there wasn’t anything too funny about it. “And then all throughout today, I felt horrible because I know Daniel was just trying to do something nice for Jihoon, and then I felt super awful because I should be celebrating Jihoon’s birthday too, even if I felt shafted.” He sighed, relieved to finally spill forth what he had kept inside the entire day. “I know it wasn’t right to lash out like that, so I could see why everyone is like…wary around me today.”

“It was a natural reaction,” Minhyun tried to console the other as he took out his phone to check the time. It was well past 8:00 – The others should be ready by now! – so he decided to take action.

“Hey,” he suddenly stood up. “Let’s go.” Jaehwan looked up in question. “It’s late and you need to eat something.”  

Jaehwan smiled, “I guess.”

Minhyun glared playfully, “No, you know. You already look thinner. Come on, get up.” He reached forward to hoist the smaller man up on his feet, glad to see the smile somewhat reach his eyes again.

“Isn’t that good? I heard the managers saying I need to diet again.”

“Shut up, stop, you’re perfect.” He knew Jaehwan was joking, but it never hurt to stop self-deprecation. The pair headed out. “Don’t forget your jacket.” (“I wasn’t going to, yeesh.”) “The fans love your cheeks, stupid, so don’t ever get rid of those.” We all love your cheeks,he wanted to say, but decided to save it for later.

“Yeah, I know. Anything for the fans.”

The pair made their way downstairs to where a van was waiting. One of the staff greeted them, and she and Minhyun shared a knowing glance as Jaehwan dove inside.

“Where to?” Jaehwan asked, actually glad to be having a proper meal in over 24 hours.

“I already told the manager where to go,” Minhyun said, closing the door.

“A birthday secret then? Alright, I got it,” Jaehwan settled, smiling as he looked out the window. For the first time that day, Minhyun could see Jaehwan was feeling better. Just you wait, he smiled at the thought of how everyone would be waiting for them to arrive.

“You’re still paying, right?”

“Is that even a question? Of course. Think of it as my birthday present to you,” Minhyun sent a meaningful gaze to the other. “Happy Birthday, Jaehwan.”

Jaehwan genuinely smiled, his cheeks coming up to his crescent-shaped eyes. “Thanks, hyung.”

The trip to the restaurant was fairly quick – Thank God – and Jaehwan looked around in awe once he got out of the van. “Have we been here before?”

Minhyun walked around to Jaehwan’s side, shaking his head with a smile and gently guiding him to the entrance. “Come on.”

As they entered, the two women at the counter easily recognized the superstars gracing their presence, sharing gasps and squeals as Minhyun walked up to them. “We have a reservation,” he said.

One of the women nodded and shakily guided the boys up to the reserved seating section at the top. “Please enjoy,” she said, and Minhyun waved to Jaehwan to hurry up. “Come on!”

“Why did we need such a big ro—”

“SURPRISE!”

Jaehwan stood there in shock as the Wanna One members (and YDPP?) suddenly surrounded him with not one, but two cakes sitting precariously in Daniel’s and Seongwoo’s hands. As they happily sang “Happy Birthday” – and he swore he could recognize Woojin’s screeching anywhere – he promptly burst into tears, covering his face with his hands as he was assaulted with pastry-cream-covered fingers.

“He’s crying!”

“Hyung, we’re sorry!”

“Guys, the cake!”

“Jaehwan’s Secret Camera…” Seongwoo shouted. “SUCCESS!”

“You all are so mean, why are you like this…” Jaehwan sobbed, feeling a dizzying mix of confusion, exasperation, and gratitude all at once. “I felt like shit the entire day because of you!” He whipped around to find a laughing Minhyun and exclaim, “You knew about this, didn’t you? Ahhh…”

“Hyung, don’t cry!” Daehwi lunged forward to wrap his lithe arms around his hyung’s shaking frame.  

“Happy birthday, hyung,” Jihoon stepped forward, reverting to his shy demeanor. “This is all for you. And it was Daniel’s idea, so…” The smaller boy took some cream off of Daniel’s cake and wiped it playfully across Jaehwan’s cheek.

“Make a wish, Jaehwan-ah!”

The birthday boy blinked away the tears blurring his vision as Seongwoo and Daniel brought their cakes forward, a shining candle on each. Jaehwan immediately blew them out. He didn’t need any wishes. He had everything he already wanted right in front of him.

Just thinking about it brought forth another wave of tears.

“Hyung, don’t cry…” Sewoon came around to wrap Jaehwan in a hug.

“Group hug!” Someone (probably Daniel) shouted and Jaehwan was quickly trapped in a tight cocoon of arms.

“Oh my God, guys, he’s gonna choke in there,” Jisung exclaimed. Jaehwan coughed as the circle broke apart, half from crying, and half from finally being able to breathe.

“Ahh,” he groaned pitifully as everyone laughed. “You all suck,” he said, wiping the stray tears from his eyes.

“Birthday speech!” Woojin exclaimed, and Jihoon whacked his arm to calm him down. Sungwoon, Daehwi, and Jinyoung chorused after the pink sausage, and soon everyone joined in, chanting, “Speech, speech, speech!”

Jaehwan chuckled before saying (while sniffling), “Uh, thank you all for this. I’m very thankful for all you’ve done. Ah, I can’t believe I fell for it, you guys deserve all the awards,” he said, and Seongwoo and Sungwoon shared a high-five.

“And uh, I’m sorry for what I said last night,” he said, choking up again as the other members chorused in denial.

“No, don’t be sorry!”

“We wanted you to say those things!”

“Yeah, it was all part of the plan!”

Jaehwan let out a watery laugh. Leave it to his members to be extra even now. “It still doesn’t excuse me from trying to hurt you all.”

He spread his arms open and said, “I love you all. And uh, today honestly sucked, and you all are the worst.” (“Hey, I wasn’t even that bad!”) “But just this right here has made it one of the best birthdays ever. Thanks to you guys.”

The boys let out a collective awwww~ before Guanlin lunged forward to wrap his tall body around his shorter hyung, eyes glittering with nothing short of admiration and wonder.

“Guys, get in here!” The maknae said, and once again Jaehwan found himself in a suffocatingly warm and stuffy hug.

“Guys, go eat, the food’s getting cold!” Minhyun shouted, and everyone immediately broke apart to grab what they could off the tables. Jaehwan sent a grateful glance to the other as he went to catch up with Youngmin.

Daniel, having set the cake down for Jisung to cut, walked over to his best friend and smiled. “Happy birthday, bro,” he said (in English), and wrapped him in a tight hug. “Sorry for making you cry back there,” he laughed his signature bunny-toothed laugh when Jaehwan shot him a joking glare.

“No wonder you all kept avoiding me today,” he remarked. His eyes wandered to the table with the chicken where a few of the members were chatting happily. “You really pulled through. The managers were in on it too, weren’t they?”

“Yeah,” Daniel sheepishly chuckled. “They were good about it, though.”

“Damn,” Jaehwan padded over to the cake table, helping himself to a plate. “So what about Jihoon? Were you really planning something for him?”

Daniel chuckled. “I was. But then the little brat found out about it. I was actually going to surprise you both, but Jihoon foiled that plan so we did the next best thing.”

“Ughh…” Jaehwan groaned. “I still feel bad for being so mean to you. I’m sorry,” Jaehwan went in for a one-armed hug.

“Eyy, don’t sweat it.” Daniel grabbed a napkin and began to wipe away the cream on Jaehwan’s face. “We expected that to happen, so you were doing us a favor!”

“I knew something was up, but it sounded so selfish, you know?” Daniel nodded. He knew Jaehwan was put in a tricky situation, but hey, all’s well that ends well, right? “Like I didn’t want to be the one to ruin my own hidden camera without coming off as some entitled prick.”

“Hey, it all worked out,” Daniel grinned at his friend. “When in doubt, blame Jihoon for being nosy.”

“Ugh, I can’t deal. Are you still doing something for him?”

“I already have,” Daniel smirked. “He thinks he got the last laugh, but I bought him a present I think he’ll truly love.”

Jaehwan raised an eyebrow. “Isn’t that a win for him though?”

Daniel pouted. “Doesn’t matter. He’ll still be surprised.”

Jaehwan laughed. “I hope he likes it.”

Daniel lightly bumped shoulders. “Your present is back at the dorm by the way.”

“Oh my God, you really didn’t have to get me anything.”

“Bullshit,” Daniel scoffed, earning an embarrassed laugh from his friend. “Daehwi and Guanlin made a card, too.”

Jaehwan puffed his cheeks in a pout. “You guys are too much.” As he looked around at his members eating good food, sharing a few laughs, and just having a good time, he couldn’t help the biggest smile from adorning his face.

“Guys, let’s take a group picture!”

“Where?”

“Kids, group picture!”

“Jaehwan-ah, come to the middle.”

“Ok!~”

“Short people in the front!”

“Hyung, that’s you.”

“Are we kneeling?”

“Guys, let’s do a set – serious, funny, and normal!”

“Noona, can you take this for us?”

“Guanlin, move in a bit!”

“Okay, everyone ready?”

“Wait, I need to pee.”

“Everyone good?”

“Wait, which pose are we doing first?”

“OKAY. READY. ONE. TWO. THREE.”

Yeah, Jaehwan thought. I think I’ll remember this forever.

pearjin: HYUNG BOUGHT CHICKEN EVERYONE COME TO OUR DORM ISSA PARTY

***

Pretty soon, the upper floor dorm was occupied with ten hungry and excited boys.

Where’s Daniel?

It was pretty late and Jihoon knew Daniel didn’t have too hectic of a schedule today, but was distracted by a screeching Jaehwan.

“Jihoonie, I found Jisung-hyung’s present! Catch!” The vocalist chucked a soft (but somewhat large) object towards his face and Jihoon scowled at the impact. “How did you even miss this?” Jaehwan laughed. Jihoon looked down, and in his hands was a bright pastel yellow hoodie, another one to add to the collection of other brightly-colored hoodies. He would collect the whole rainbow at this point (not that he was complaining).

“Aww, hyung.” Jihoon scanned the room for the leader, who was happily serving himself a fried chicken drumstick. Seongwoo stood off to the side, proudly gazing at the fruit of his efforts – you could never go wrong with food. He caught Jihoon’s gaze and beckoned him over before quickly wrapping his arms around the younger member.

“Happy birthday, Jihoonie.” Jihoon blushed from the close proximity, but smiled warmly at the elder. “Have you tried the chicken yet?”

Jihoon shook his head, but said, “I’ve had this brand before, hyung,” with a chuckle. It wasn’t a novel taste, but Jihoon would eat it every day if he could.

“Better hurry,” Seongwoo muttered. “It’ll be gone soon at the rate everyone is eating. Daniel might not even get any. Where is he anyway?”

“He’s late,” Jihoon growled. “And on my birthday, too, hmph.”

Jisung came around and Jihoon thanked him for the gift – the hoodie was just his style and he swore he would wear it tomorrow. “Wear it proudly,” the leader said. “Oh, and Daniel said he was running a little late from his schedule, but he’ll be here soon.”

“Ah,” Jihoon nodded, still a bit disappointed, but helped himself to the mouth-watering pieces of heaven sitting on the trays in front of him. “Well, it’s his loss if he can’t have any.”

Jihoon was too busy eating and bickering with the younger members that he had forgotten to look for the remaining presents, that is, until Minhyun and Sungwoon handed him their wrapped packages.

“Happy birthday, Jihoonie!” Minhyun handed his gift and gave a small kiss on top of Jihoon’s crown. “I hope you like it.” Jihoon hastily wiped his fingers across a napkin, but a stern look from the Emperor had him shying away to the bathroom to wash his hands properly.

When he came back, he didn’t hesitate to rip open the wrapping paper – to Minhyun’s slight chagrin and Sungwoon’s amusement, knowing how Minhyun was a perfectionist who liked to take his time with presentation – and found a cute recipe book for baking treats and desserts.

“Whoa,” Jihoon’s eyes widened with awe. “Where did you get this?” Woojin, Daehwi, and Jinyoung came over to skim the beautifully bound pages, all of them sporting similar expressions of amazement. “Thank you, hyung!” Jihoon leaped forward to hug the taller member warmly.

Minhyun smiled his sweet, angelic smile. “I know we don’t have a lot of time to bake, but it’s a good pasttime for whenever you’re bored. If you ever bake anything, let me try it, okay?”

Jihoon nodded. He could just imagine him and Daniel baking together sometime in the future, perhaps in a few years when they could live together in their own place. His heart briefly fluttered at how grossly domestic it would be when a cough brought him out of his daydreaming.

“Here you go, kid,” Sungwoon handed him a similarly sized but thinner package. “And be a little careful with this one.”

Jihoon wasted no time and carefully peeled the wrapping paper away. As soon as the first sliver appeared, he let out a loud gasp, and proceeded to shred the paper away to reveal the newest BTS album.

“Oh my God,” Jihoon could cry at how beautiful it was. “Hyung…”

Sungwoon chuckled, a bit embarrassed. “It’s signed on the inside, too. I asked Jimin to get the members to sign it and oh—!” Jihoon immediately wrapped his smaller hyung in a tight embrace.

“I lied, this is the best present ever,” Jihoon whispered. When he pulled back, Sungwoon was a bit startled because Jihoon’s eyes were quite literally shining.

“Oh God, please don’t cry. I don’t know how to deal with crying dongsaengs. Oh! And...” He reached for the album and turned to the back where several photocards fell out. “I was debating just asking for Taehyung’s photocards, but you need variety,” he joked. “Taehyung left you a special message, though. At least that’s what Jimin told me.”

Jihoon was no longer listening, too immersed in the magic in his hands.

“Good thing he washed his hands,” Minhyun said from off to the side.

Jihoon was in the middle of scrolling through the photobook, overwhelmed by the visuals (which was to be expected), when the door opened to reveal a somewhat disheveled looking Daniel.

“Oh my God. I’m here. Hello.”

“Hi, hyung!” Guanlin exclaimed from the back.

“Seongwoo-hyung bought chicken!” Woojin screeched (and Daehwi gave him the stare).  

“Is there any left?”

“Of course!” Seongwoo feigned offense. “I always buy more than necessary.”

Daniel gave a slightly disbelieving look but helped himself to some fruit. It had been a hard day, but at least there was a good reason to celebrate.

Jisung tapped his shoulder, gesturing for him to come to the side, and the pair turned away from the crowd. Someone had put on a playlist and the music was quite loud for their apartment so the elder leaned in.

“Can I see it?” Jisung whispered.

Daniel went into choding mode. “See what?” he asked, faux innocent as he popped a strawberry into his mouth.

Jisung whacked his arm, which only brought a pout to Daniel’s face for a split second before the Wanna One center grinned and said, “You’ll see it later anyway. Relax.”

Jisung giggled, “This is starting to sound like a pre-proposal scene. Which, need I remind you, I have banned you from doing for at least another five years. Y’all are too damn young.”

“Yes, Mom.

Jisung glanced over his shoulder. Unsurprisingly, Jihoon was still absorbed in the BTS album. Woojin and Seongwoo had gone over to take a look at the photocards scattered around the smaller boy.

“You should give it to him now before he falls into BTS land and melts into Taehyung’s eyes.”

Daniel scoffed. “My eyes are beautiful. And I already said I’d get him the best present, no matter what Sungwoon-hyung says.”

“He’ll love it,” Jisung said warmly. “You’re a good man, Daniel. I’m proud of you.”

Daniel aww’ed, “Don’t get all sappy on me now, hyung.” He wrapped an arm around the elder, squeezing his shoulder. “But thanks for always being there.”

“Ugh,” Jisung shrugged the younger’s arm off. “Go.”

Daniel made his way to where Jihoon still sat on the carpet, admiring the lyrics section of the photobook. He didn’t seem to notice his boyfriend’s presence, even when Seongwoo and Woojin had moved away to give them some privacy.

Daniel pressed his palms along Jihoon’s shoulders, startling the younger out of his fanboy mode. “Daniel!” Jihoon exclaimed, leaping up and latching onto Daniel’s shoulders (album still in hand) while standing on his toes (which Daniel claimed was the cutest thing in the world). “I didn’t even hear you come in!”

“Happy birthday, Jihoon,” Daniel pressed a kiss to Jihoon’s forehead. “How was your day?”

“It was good!” Jihoon chirped. “One of the best birthdays ever!” Jihoon set the album down on a stool (Sungwoon quickly brought it into Jihoon’s room) and wrapped his arms around Daniel’s waist, the elder bringing a hand to his waist and the other across his back.

The couple began to awkwardly tiptoe around the living room as if they were slow dancing in their own little world. Woojin and Jinyoung snickered at how they wobbled and swayed from side to side, even taking a video to send to the group chat, while Minhyun and Jisung just found it adorable.

“I wish you had a day off, though. You deserve it.”

“Please. It’s you who needs a week off. And I don’t mind being busy.” Jihoon pressed his face against Daniel’s chest, listening to the steady rhythm of his heartbeat. “It distracts me.”

Daniel breathed in the scent of Jihoon’s freshly-showered hair, smiling when he recognized the scent of his own shampoo. “Me too, darling.”

Jihoon paused in his steps and Daniel almost tripped from the sudden halt. “Sorry,” he muttered cutely, before pulling the pleading eyes (that he knew Daniel was weak to – the brat). “So where’s my present?”

“Ah,” Daniel let go of the smaller boy, who looked confused for a brief moment before gasping when Daniel went down on one knee.  

“H-hyung?”

“Are you proposing!?” Sungwoon screeched, and Daniel merely chuckled as everyone’s attention was on them now.

“Dibs on being best man!”

“Hyung, you should be the priest again.”

“No.”

“Ooh, can I be the priest then?”

“No, you can be the flower boy.”

“Me!?”

“Guys, shush!”

“Guys! Relax, everyone, no, I’m not proposing.” Jihoon stood there, frozen and flabbergasted at the ridiculousness of what was happening. Daniel looked up and winked at his boyfriend. “Sorry, babe. I promised Jisung-hyung I wouldn’t propose for another five years.”

Jihoon, now incredibly flustered, stuttered out. “T-then what the hell are you doing?”

“Giving you your present, silly.”

“Was it the heart attack?” Jihoon snapped. “Because you scared the shit out of me.”

“No, baby,” Daniel uttered the pet name so smoothly that Jihoon was left winded once more. “It’s this.” Daniel reached into his front pocket and pulled out a golden band, which caused the other members to gasp, some more exaggerated than others. 

“Not a proposal, my ass.”

“Shut up, hyung.”

Daniel chuckled as Jihoon glared down at him with his arms crossed. “Jihoon-ah.”

“Daniel.”

“Jihoon-ah,” he grinned. “My sweet, precious Jihoonie.”

“Daniel,” Jihoon’s voice had a threatening lilt.

“I’m not proposing to you regardless of what this looks like.” He bashfully looked down and focused on Jihoon’s mismatched socks to avoid the younger’s piercing gaze. He lowered his voice and mumbled, “But I, uhh…if we ever get to it, I’d like to propose to you properly later.”

“Daniel!”

“Sorry, um…” Daniel floundered. Fuck. “Jihoon-ah, I wanted to give this,” he held the ring out on the palm of his hand, “…to you as a promise ring. It’s not a lot, but…” Looking back up, Daniel could tell Jihoon was trying very hard to keep his stoic expression from cracking.

He continued, “It’s a promise to you, that I’ll always be there for you, and that I’ll always be by your side, if you let me. I’m so, so thankful for everything that’s happened, and that the universe brought us together like this. You and me, we…we have something special. And because of you, I’ve been the happiest I’ve ever been, ever since we got together, and I hope we’ll stay together for a long, long time.”

“Awww….”

“This is so sweet, I’m shriveling up inside.”

“Shhh!”

“Is he winging this?”

“Shhhh!”

“So, my dearest, Jihoon,” Daniel looked up to meet Jihoon’s softened gaze, eyes filled with nothing short of love and gratitude. “Will you accept this ring, and do me the honor of being part of your forever? It’s not much, I know, but I have one, too, here, an—”

Jihoon lunged forward, embracing the elder in a hug and catching him off-guard from pulling the second ring out of his pocket.

“Yes. Yes, I do.”

Daniel chuckled, bringing his arms around his boyfriend’s torso once more. He brought the pair to a standing position – his knee was starting to hurt – and spun them around to face the other members. “He said yes!” he joked, and everyone, extra as always, burst into applause as the pair slipped their rings onto each other’s fingers.

“Okay, this is way too much like a wedding,” Jisung muttered, but let it go. Kids will be kids.

“Guys, there’s still some chicken if you want some. Grab it while it’s…lukewarm!” Seongwoo exclaimed from the back. The members dispersed and resumed their activities, fully intent on making the most of tonight before they returned to their busy lives in the early morning.

Jihoon, firmly grasping his boyfriend’s hand, was elated. He truly felt this was one of the best days ever. He leaned up to press a kiss against Daniel’s cheek, smiling brightly when Daniel turned to him in surprise. “Thank you for everything. I would take you over BTS any day.”

“Really? Is that so?” Daniel smirked. “Even V-hyung? V-hyung and his sexy facial expressions?”

“Ooh, tough call,” Jihoon tilted his head. “Hmm…” he pondered. “Okay, maybe not the expressions. I like those too much.”   

“Looks like I have some competition then,” Daniel growled playfully, pulling his boyfriend closer by the waist. “What will it take for me to win you over?”

“Mm,” Jihoon smiled teasingly. You already have. “Keep trying.”

“Oh? Do I have a time limit?”

Jihoon raised his ring finger, the golden band catching in the light.

“Forever sounds good, don’t you think?”
