I mean jimin why is he even apologizing anyway? Tf did he do?
Jimin?

Taebi:
Hang on hobi things are getting good
“please jimin? I promise it won’t happen again”
That’s the ex
Jimin looks really awkward I should probably do something
Omg I feel like I’m in a drama the ex hook up just went off on how much he enjoyed ‘that night’ with jimin
My soulmate has game :’) your fave could never
Wait yikes jimin didn’t like that he’s making his stink face

Joonie:

Sleepy boi:
Question: why is the hook up apologizing to jimin? Shouldn’t it be the other way?

Chim:
No.

Joonie:
Jimin! Welcome back! How’d it go?

Chim:
Awful.

Dad joke:
What happened?

Taebi:
Ex hook up wanted another hook up :/ chim’s game is TOO good

Nochu:
N I c e
Hyung’s got game

Chim:
NO
We aren’t compatible
And like no offense but some of the things he wanted from me I didn’t feel comfortable doing and I don’t want to say them because everyone can like what they like
Who am I to judge right?
But I really would rather just eat my mcflurry and forget about that awkward run in please guys
It was so bad

Taebi:
…jimin….

Chim:
😊 don’t worry I’m fine! I mean yeah it was awkward but like we had fun that one time even though it wasn’t for me! So I’m okay! I’m just glad I can have icecream and nuggets with my soulmate <3

Taebi:

Chim:

Aw you guys are cute

 

Sleepy boi:

*disgusting

They’re grossly in love

 

Chim:

It’s cute!

You don’t think it’s cute? They get all squishy around each other! I mean namjoon-hyung is already pretty soft as a person but he’s EXTRA soft when he’s with kookie!

 

Hoebi:

“squishy”

Chim what you so cute for?

 

Taebi:

Yoongi-hyung do you hate love?

 

Chim:

:O

HYUNGGGGGGG

DO YOU HATE LOVE?!

 

Sleepy boi:

No jimin I don’t hate love

I actually like love a lot

It’s cute

But namjoon and Jungkook are my bestfriends and seeing them together is awkward because I’m a socially awkward person and their relationship makes me feel very single

I’m happy for them! (happy for you guys)

but my responsibility as their hyung is to give them shit for being disgustingly in love

 

chim:

wait you’re single?

 

Taebi:

How is that the only thing you picked up on?

 

Nochu:

Tae shhhhh it’s getting good

 

Taebi:

K

 

Sleepy boi:

Yea I’m single

You didn’t know?

 

Chim:

NO

I DIDN’T

HOW ARE YOU SINGLE?!

 

Sleepy boi:

I’m socially anxious and sleep a lot

Not exactly prime dating material with my mental health being how it is right now either

 

Chim:

Excuse me

Yes you are

You’re great

You’re smart and funny and talented

And you’re really hot

How has no one tried to snatch you up yet?!

Not that you're an object ofc

 

Sleepy boi:

Thanks chim

You’re so sweet

:)

And it’s not that I haven’t dated before! I’ve had partners before. It’s just been a while

 

Chim:

Oh okay I get that

I haven’t dated in a long time either

 

Dad joke:

I just got back from the store why are yoongi and jimin talking about dating?

 

Sleepy boi:

Jimin was curious

 

Dad joke:

Oh WAS HE?

 

Chim:

I’m just surprised is all!

I don’t understand how nobody would want to date him!

[Private Chat: “LOML”]

 

Ggukie:

JOONIE JOONIE JOONIE

JOOOOOONIEEEEEEEE

JIMIN HAS A CRUSH ON YOONGI!!!!

 

Monie:

???

What?

 

Ggukie:

I was talking to taetae-hyung and he told me that jimin has a big fat crush on yoongi!

I called it!

Jimin acts extra soft to yoongi-hyung!

 

Monie:

Oh wow

Wow okay I definitely wasn’t expecting that

 

Ggukie:

Me neither!

It’s so cool though!

HYUNG WE SHOULD SET THEM UP

YOONGI ALREADY HAS A SOFT SPOT FOR JIMINk

 

Monie:

…Idk kook…

That might not be a good idea

 

Ggukie:

What? Why not?

They’re both small, angry, and single

They’d be great boyfriends

 

Monie:

If jimin actually likes yoongi…

 

Ggukie:

What do you mean?

Taetae-hyung said that jimin has a crush on him ofc he likes yoongi??

 

Monie:

Baby you know I don’t like analyzing people

But this includes yoongi-hyung and I don’t want him to get hurt

Why does taehyung think that Jimin has a crush on yoongi?

 

Ggukie:

Well…

Idk he wasn’t allowed to tell me TECHNICALLY

I just kept guessing and guessed correctly

Jimin probably told him though!

 

Monie:

Okay

Assuming that jimin told tae

We have to remember that jimin hasn’t been in a relationship before

He may THINK he likes yoongi-hyung romantically

But what if he just wants something temporary like his other relationships?

 

Ggukie:

You mean his hookups?

 

Monie:

I didn’t want to use that term, but yeah…them

I like Jimin a lot! I really do! He’s really nice and a great friend

But I just don’t think jimin is the type to settle down for a relationship

And I know Yoongi-hyung. He isn’t going to want something temporary.

There’s a very big possibility that jimin is just projecting his sexual interest in yoongi-hyung now, and doesn’t actually want to date him

 

Ggukie:

☹ You mean jimin would only want to sleep with hyung?

 

Monie:

It’s a possibility!

Not the only option ofc

Because jimin could genuinely like him! Yoongi-hyung is really nice! He’s a great guy and if jimin really likes him then he’ll see that

But I just don’t think that’s the case. I know he’s your friend and you’re closer to him than I am, but Jimin’s history with partners isn’t exactly trustworthy

 

Ggukie:

:( :(

Well now I’m sad

Yoongi-hyung deserves all the love after everything he’s been through

 

Monie:

He does! He deserves so much of it! I’m just worried that Jimin won’t be able to provide it and leave yoongi-hyung attached and hurt at the end

 

Ggukie:

I see your point :(

 

Monie:

Aw no baby don’t be sad

I didn’t mean to be that person

I’m just an overthinker and maybe Jimin really has a crush on yoongi! I don’t know him as well as you do and if you think his feelings are real then we should definitely get them together! Or try to since I don’t know how yoongi-hyung feels

 

Ggukie:

No hyung you’re right…

I didn’t consider Jimin’s history

He doesn’t talk about it so I forget about it ☹ You’re right about him maybe not liking hyung for more than sex

 

Monie:

I’m sorry…

I know you were really excited I’m sorry I ruined that for you :(

 

Ggukie:

No! It’s okay! Stop frowning!

 

Monie:

: )

 

Gggukie:

You’re so cute <3

Can I come over for cuddles?

 

Monie:

Kook you were here earlier

 

Ggukie:

It’s not like it’s a secret that he’s a hoe

He acts like it’s something he needs to be ashamed of and I just want him to know that it isn’t

You know?

 

Agust d:

Maybe he doesn’t want people to know tae

Maybe he’s shy

 

V:

Yeah because he thinks we’ll judge him

But that’s dumb! Because Jungkook was the biggest fuckboi before namjoon and him got together! You know!

 

Agust d:

Does he know that?

Yeah!

Huh

You don’t have to forgive me but I really do think you’re amazing

 

Suga-hyung:

It’s okay jimin

I understand why you got mad

 

Jimin:

It’s still not an excuse

I got you some hot chocolate too

Sorry

 

Suga-hyung:

I’m sorry for making you mad

I forget you’re not used to me being like this

 

Jimin:

Like what?

Upset?

Everyone gets upset hyung, it’s okay

 

Suga-hyung:

I know

I mean

I know it’s fine to be upset but i forget you’re not used to me going to the group

You don’t know what a fucking mess I am haha

 

Jimin:

Don’t talk bad about yourself please

I’m just glad you’re able to trust me with your mental health too, hyung

I know we aren’t as close as everyone else but it means a lot to me to know that you trust me when you’re upset too

Thank you for trusting me

 

Suga-hyung:

Why wouldn’t I trust you?

We’re friends?

For like a year now?

Jimin we’re not as close as me and the others but that doesn’t mean I don’t trust you

 

Jimin:

Oh

Well now I know that

Thank you hyung

Monie:

It’s nothing

I’m just thinking to myself

Are you okay? You made a weird face earlier

 

Ggukie:

I’m okay

I just

I can’t stop thinking about what you said

Jimin is really nice but you’re right…

What if he’s just doing all this to get into yoongi-hyungs pants?

I used to do that when I slept around joonie

I was horrible

I used to be nice and then drop the girls as soon as we slept together

Joonie what if he’s doing that too? ☹ I don’t want to believe it but…I’m worried

 

Monie:

Aw kook no

I’m sorry I said anything

I made tension with you and your friend

 

Ggukie:

No

I would’ve thought it eventually

Because I was the same

Yoongi-hyung is too sensitive for those games

 

Monie:

Hey don’t look so sad

How about this:

We don’t let it happen. If you and I team up, we can keep jimin form pulling any moves on yoongi-hyung

He probably isn’t even aware that he’s doing these things, so if it goes too far, we’ll talk to him, yeah?

I agree that hyung is too sensitive for this

But jimin is a good guy even if his history isn’t the best

 

Ggukie:

…okay

Okay yeah that’s a good idea

We’ll keep yoongi-hyung from being used

 

Monie:

Yeah so cheer up okay? We’re here to make yoongi feel better and if you look all upset he’s gonna think it’s his fault

I’M GONNA SMILE SO MUCH

Mochimin:

Fine

 

Taehyungie:

Wellllllll???

Tell me what happened!!!!

 

Mochimin:

Idk what you want me to say tae??? Like it was just sex? It wasn’t anything special?

He wanted to meet up and he’s nice so why not?

And we both agreed it was just to stress release

It isn’t that big of a deal

 

Taehyungie:

Was it kinky or vanilla

 

Mochimin:

…a little of both?

Idk he held me down but yeah

Not super kinky but not like

Super soft

We don’t really know each other, just attracted to each other

So I don’t really trust him to like go kinky kinky, you know?

Mutual attraction and good sex, ig?

 

Taehyungie:

Who was it?

 

Mochimin:

I’m not telling you that

That’s a breech in privacy for him, sorry tae

 

Taehyungie:

Dang okay

You’re so dry about your tea ☹

Sorry not sorry

Chim:

Sleepy boi:

Lmao

Tae why do you ask for details?

 

Taebi:

Because

And jimin won’t come through with the details to quench my thirst

I’M SO OUT OF THE GAME THAT I STARTED HAVING WET DREAMS ABOUT JIN-HYUNG

 

Dad joke:

Dad joke:

TELL US EVERYTHING

 

Chim:

OH MY GOD FINE

YOU WANT TO KNOW? FINE

F I NE

I GOT FUCKED LAST NIGHT, TAEHYUNG, YOONGI, AND ANYONE ELSE WHO WANTS TO KNOW ABOUT MY SEX LIFE

MY DICK GOT SUCKED AND THEN I HAD A DICK IN MY ASS

AND IN CASE YOU DON’T REMEMBER WHAT IT FEELS LIKE TO HAVE SEX OR WHAT IT ENTITLES

IT FELT GOOD

AND IT WENT IN AND OUT

AND I ORGASMED

AND MAYBE HE HELD ME DOWN AND DIRTY TALKED

AND MAYBE I LIKED IT

A LOT

AND THERE WAS SPANKING AND PRAISING AND LIKE

A SECOND ROUND

AND THEN HE PASSED OUT AND I GRABBED MY CLOTHES AND LEFT AND NOW HERE I AM

MORTIFIED

BECAUSE YOU GUYS CAN’T GET SEX ON THE REGULAR

 

Taebi:

Hoebi:

Wow

I’m so proud :’)

Bottom lives matter *fist bump*

 

Chim:

Please don’t ever say that to me again you top

 

Hoebi:

Silence, bottom

 

Chim:

Bitch I switch

Depending on what my partner is comfortable with

Ofc

 

Sleepy boi:

So I’m reading that over again and I’m sorry but who was being spanked and did you do the thing where you had to count?

For science

 

Chim:

I refuse to answer any more questions

 

Taebi:

Stingy bastard

 

Hoebi:

He’s a shy hoe

How cute

Uwu

 

Sleepy boi:

 

Chim:

I’m going to class jfc

He wants sex

 

Monie:

Ggukie:

Monie:

Wait come over

Calm down before you do something you’ll regret

 

Ggukie:

Don’t worry hyung

I’ll be fine

But jimin is gonna stay away from yoongi-hyung

And he’s going to realize this crush is nothing

And nobody is going to get hurt

I’ll be back later.

Chim:

Oh it’s okay! Homework comes first!

I understand! Yoongi-hyung is here with me so I’m not lonely 😊

 

Sleepy boi:

Nochu:

Wtf

Did you just call me fat

 

Sleepy boi:

Yes

 

Nochu:

I am not fat

Joonie tell him

 

Joonie:

He’s not fat

At all

Yoongi-hyung that was mean

 

Nochu:

Yeah hyung

I demand food for my emotional wounds

 

Sleepy boi:

You heard him Namjoon

Go get your boyfriend food for his emotional wounds

I’m only treating jimin though

He’s the only one who respects me in this house therefore he’s the only one I’m spending my hard earned money on

 

Taebi:

I can’t respect you when I can barely see you

 

Sleepy boi:

😊

Hhahahahahahahah you’re dead to me :D

 

Taebi:

I’m sorry

 

Sleepy boi:

😊

Dead to me :D

 

Chim:

Kook go away

If you show up here I’m showing namjoon pre-puberty photos of yourself

 

Nochu:

Sleepy boi:

And I have recently learned that jimin seems to think he isn’t my friend

 

Chim:

Um

 

Sleepy boi:

So I’m gonna spend the day with jimin today

Without you brats

And jin-hyung

 

Chim:

I know we’re friends

 

Sleepy boi:

Cuz you’re a little too shocked whenever we spend time together

We’re friends

We’re gonna hang out

Without leeching brats

(Jeon Jungkook that means you in case I wasn’t obvious enough)

 

Taebi:

Yoonmin day out!

 

Sleepy boi:

[private chat: “twosan”]

 

Small-hyung:

Hey kookie I’m sorry you couldn’t come with us today! I’ll make it up to you and bring you some food tomorrow, I promise!

 

read 4:59pm

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

[Private Chat: “BFFL”]

 

Tae:

Come home

Jimin is gonna skip out movie night and I’m lonely

This is not the time for you to be getting cuddles from your boyfriend

 

Kook:

I’m not with joonie

I’m on a walk

 

Tae:

Oh shit what’s wrong

You never go on walks unless you’re upset

Are you still mad about yoongi not wanting to hang out?

You know he barely hangs with chim

Besides chim was super excited about hanging out with just yoongi

I think he was secretly glad yoongi didn’t let you tag along lol what a cute nugget

 

Kook:

I’m not mad about that

I’m just

Annoyed

It’s nothing

 

Tae:

Hey don’t do that

You’re my bestfriend

Tell me what’s wrong?

 

Kook:

…promise me you won’t tell jimin

 

Tae:

…I promise

 

Kook:

I don’t think he likes yoongi at all

I think maybe he thinks he does

But joonie made a really good point

And jimin isn’t good at relationships

He’s told us that remember?

A long time ago he told us that he likes to sleep around and that commitment scares him because he doesn’t know if he can be ready to choose one person for the rest of his life

And that’s fine

There’s nothing wrong with that

But yoongi-hyung isn’t like that

He doesn’t do casual sex like jimin does

He wants commitment

And I don’t think jimin can do that

So he’d only hurt yoongi-hyung

And I don’t want that to happen so i’m trying my best to make sure they’re not in a position where yoongi-hyung can get hurt

But it’s really hard when he shuts me out like that

I’m trying to make sure hes okay and he won’t let me

And I’m tryin to be considerate of jimin because I know he just can’t do relationships and its fine

It’s FINE

I used to sleep around

But I changed

And idk ifh e will

 

Tae:

Oh kook

Buddy

Listen

We know jimin

He’s our friend

He would never hurt yoongi-hyung

You know that

He respects him so much it’s kind of ridiculous

 

Kook:

Yeah

For now

What about when he sleeps with him?

Jimin has always been nice before he gets someone into bed

We know it

We’ve seen it

And then what happens?

 

Tae:

Jungkook

 

Kook:

What happens tae?

What does jimin do after?

 

Tae:

That’s not fair

 

Kook:

Just tell me

Confirm it

 

Tae:

Jungkook you’re not being fair to jimin at all

 

Kook:

Tae

 

Tae:

Fine

Fine kook, jimin leaves the person

But you know it’s not as simple as that

We both know jimin is upfront about his intentions

He tells his hook ups that they’re not serious and it’s a one night thing and they all agree to the terms

He doesn’t play games

It’s not his fault the other person gets attached because he was upfront from the start

 

Kook:

The point is that he leaves

And no matter how upfront he is, if the other person likes him that way, they’re going to get hurt

What if yoongi-hyung ends up liking jimin? Romantically? He already seems weirdly invested in jimin. What if he finds out jimin only wants him for sex

What do we do then, tae?

Jimin is my friend but yoongi-hyung is like family to me

I’m not going to be nice to jimin if he hurts my family

 

Tae:

Kook jimin isn’t going to do that

We know him better than that

 

Kook:

We do

And we know how he is

And we know yoongi

And how he is

They’re not compatible

 

Tae:

Is this why you’ve been so upset lately?

 

Kook:

Yeah

I didn’t want to tell anyone

Well I told joonie but I tell him everything so

 

Tae:

Hey

Can I say something

 

Kook:

Yeah

 

Tae:

Just because jimin sleeps around doesn’t mean he’s going to do that to yoongi-hyung

I see your point

I really do

But I just don’t think jimin is mean enough to do that to someone, and I genuinely think he likes yoongi. Is he handling those feelings well? Absolutely not, but I don’t think jimin knows how to handle feelings yet. He’s not leading yoongi-hyung on, though. They’re friends

And it’s kind of hypocritical for you to think so low of him when before namjoon-hyung you were the same

 

Kook:

Not intentionally

And it’s different with me and joonie

I stopped when I realized I liked him

But what about that guy from mcdonalds?

 

Tae:

What about him

He was an ex kook

 

Kook:

Yeah

And he was attached to jimin

And what did jimin do? Dropped him

Not acknowledge him

Hide behind you

Ignore him and avoid

Put yoongi-hyung into the other guys shoes

How does yoongi-hyung react to people hating him after being used?

 

Tae:

…not well…

He doesn’t like disappointing people…

 

Kook:

Yeah

Now imagine how used he’ll feel like when jimin just wants sex and none of his personality

How disappointing he’ll feel not to be good enough for anything but sex

Imagine how shitty that’ll feel on his self esteem which is already really low even though he jokes about it

 

Tae:

You put a lot of thought into this

 

Kook:

I’m just worried

 

Tae:

No I see your point

I don’t think jimin is like that though

 

Kook:

Well just in case

I’m not gonna let it happen

Yoongi can be mad at me but I’m gonna try to make sure he doesn’t get hurt again

I don’t want a repeat of two years ago

 

Tae:

…okay…

Come back please I’m sad now

 

Kook:

Okay

I’m sorry

I’m on my way

Please don’t tell jimin this

Your parents are helping you through college

 

Cooky:

Chimmy:

CUTE

Okay fine I’ll pay

 

Cooky:

:D my favorite hyung

 

Chimmy:

I wasn’t aware yoongi was in this gc?

 

Tata:

Ouch

 

Cooky:

What?

 

Chimmy:

Lol kookie

Everyone knows yoongi-hyung is your favorite hyung out of all of us

Even more favorite than namjoon-hyung

Actually I thought you would date yoongi for a while there :’)

 

Tata:

Lmao chim

Jungkook used to have the biggest crush on yoongi before we knew you

 

Chimmy:

WHAAAAAAAT?! AND YOU DIDN’T TELL ME?! AWWWWWW

 

Cooky:

No

Don’t make it a thing

I was young

 

Chimmy:

Hey yoongi is a great person to have a crush on! Don’t be embarrassed!

 

Cooky:

I know he’s great!

But I was embarrassing when I was younger!

 

Tata:

He used to follow yoongi around everywhere

Like a little puppy

One time yoongi hugged kook cuz he failed his English test and kook cried even harder

And later spammed me with how good yoongi smelled

 

Chimmy:

Omfg kook you’re so cute

 

Cooky:

Let’s just get the snacks and remember that joonie and I are very happy together and yoongi-hyung is practically my brother

 

Tata:

Asdgjh you were even more of a disaster with your crush on namjoon!

😂😂😂😂😂😂

You couldn’t even look him in the eye even though you followed him everywhere!

Satellite Jungkook shone sooooooo much I was worried you’d try and fuse with namjoon

😂😂😂😂😂

 

Cooky:

HEY YOU'RE LAUGHING BUT IT WORKED

WHO HAS A BOYFRIEND AND WHO’S SINGLE?

 

Tata:

 

Cooky:

THAT’S FUCKING RIGHT YOU TRICK ASS BITCH

ITS ME

I STAY WINNING

Cooky:

Jiminieeeeeee ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

 

Tata:

👀👀👀

 

 

 

 

 

[“BFFL”]

 

Tae:

So

Are we going to talk about how you’re suddenly team jimin?

 

Kook:

look

He’s still my friend

I just don’t agree with some of the shit he does

 

Tae:

Yeah well

You were acting like you were ready to jump him a few days ago

 

Kook:

I'm not going to jump him. I'm just going to have a stern word with him if he hurts yoongi, and he will probably cry, but i won't jump him

But they’re not even close so I’m worrying over nothing

And listen just because I don’t like what jimin does doesn’t mean I don’t like jimin

He’s my best friend

 

Tae:

I still think you’re being too harsh on Jimin

 

Kook:

Well you can keep thinking that

But we don’t know him that well

He doesn’t open up to us

I realized that. Like I don’t even know what his family is like? I just know he has a sibling and that he’s from busan, but I literally just barely found that out

Jimin doesn’t tell us anything and idk its bugging me to know that he isn’t as open with us as we all are with him

But whatever. Everyone has a right to their privacy, and jimin is still my friend

He’s just not gonna fuck with yoongi-hyung as long as I’m around 😊

 

Tae:

…okay kook

Did you get the snacks?

 

Kook:

We’re coming back now!

Nochu:

It’s beautiful

this is us pretending we're youtubers (look at how cute joonie's face is!)

I got this from Hobi-hyung. we were watching something on my laptop and joonie almost touched my ass but he didn't :/

this is when hyung was having a mental breakdown during his final production piece and jin-hyung took a picture of us right as joonie was telling me to let him get back to his laptop (I didn't btw i made him come home and cuddle me)

i didn't think hyung could carry me but HE CAN and I was SO HAPPY

his hands,,, are so soft????

this was us being SPIED ON by yoongi-hyung but look how cute joonie is in his beanie?

I was surprising joonie after his class here and i didn't realize taetae had his camera out but we're cute right?

HAVE I MENTIONED THAT I LOVE THIS MAN?????

FUCK I LOVE HIM AJKSDFHDSKJFHDKJG

oh and here's a picture yoongi took of us after we left joonie's studio WHERE I STILL SAY WE WEREN'T MAKING OUT OKAY I WISH WE WERE BUT HE WAS FOCUSING ON HIS LAPTOP AND ALL HE DID WAS HOLD MY HAND

Taebi:

WHY WON’T YOU LET ME HAVE THIS?!

 

Joonie:

Maybe someday

But no

You don’t get to rap

Last time you rapped you were an ASSHOLE to us

 

Taebi:

I don’t recall

 

Sleepy boi:

Does “Alright, so I heard the hyungs’ rap well. Namjoon’s hyungs all mature now. Their rap skills are nearly back to back. It’s a compliment, now quit it” sound familiar?

 

Taebi:

That’s not me idk

 

Hoebi:

‘hobi hyungs in front of me, he’s getting all tense now. What’s making you nervous? Go make us some kimchi”

 

Joonie:

“Daegu dialect, it’s alive. Youngi hyung, you alive son?”

 

Nochu:

Wow I can’t believe tae straight up came for the hyungs

 

Taebi:

HI MY NAME IS JARED, 19

That’s not me my voice is much lower than that twink

 

Sleepy boi:

Jfc

Taehyung I will make this very clear

You will not be in a cypher with us

 

Taebi:

Hypothetically

Is it because I’m too good at roasting you guys?

 

Sleepy boi:

No

 

Joonie:

Possibly

 

Sleepy boi:

NO

It isn’t

Because I can roast you twice as much 😊

You remember agust d don’t you?

I’ve been meaning to make a second mixtape and I guess I can always roast you on it

Maybe namedrop since you want to be included in my raps so bad

For all of soundcloud

And we all know I have a very good sound cloud following 😊

 

Taebi:

WAIT NO I’M SORRY PLS DON’T MAKE YOUR SCARY FANS HATE ME

I’M DELICATE

 

Joonie:

Sometimes you scare me, hyung

 

Dad joke:

Tiny lil meow meow knows better than to try and threaten his favorite hyung uwu

 

Nochu:

[Private Chat: "suga-hyung -> Jimin"]

 

Suga-hyung:

You’re quiet in the groupchat

I can see you lurking

You usually jump in

 

Jimin:

Ah yeah

Sorry

I just didn’t have anything to say

 

Suga-hyung:

Just say anything

Roast taehyung with him

 

Jimin:

Well I mean I can’t?

I didn’t even know he wrote that rap thing until just now

…remember, I just met you all this year so I don’t know all the inside jokes lol

 

Suga-hyung:

Oh yeah

I forgot

Well jump in anyways

Quit lurking like a weirdo

 

Jimin:

…hyung…

You lurk more than I do

 

Suga-hyung:

That’s completely different

I lurk because I’m depressive and tend to dissociate or not have the energy to text

 

Jimin:

…are you okay hyung?

 

Suga-hyung:

I’m having a weird day

My sensitivity is at a high so I’m texting to burn off the excess energy

 

Jimin:

Do you want to come on a walk with me? Maybe that’ll help the energy

 

Suga-hyung:

Actually a walk sounds fucking perfect right now

Meet me at the square

 

Jimin:

Okay text me when you get there!

 

 

 

 

Suga-hyung:

I’m here

 

Jimin:

I see you! I’m waving!

Suga-hyung:

Jimin

 

Jimin:

Hi hyung!

Do you need to take a walk again?

 

Suga-hyung:

Yes please

And can we go to the convenience store too? I haven’t eaten and I’m starving

 

Jimin:

Duh

I’ll buy

I CAN SEE YOU TYPING LET ME HAVE THIS

YOU NEVER LET ME BUY FOOD

 

Suga-hyung:

I’M OLDER THAN YOU LET ME PAY

 

Jimin:

NO

I WANT TO

I’LL TACKLE YOU TO THE GROUND UNTIL YOU LET ME PAY

 

Suga-hyung:

I’LL WRITE YOU INTO MY NEXT CYPHER

 

Jimin:

Do it!

I DARE YOU

 

Suga-hyung:

…well that wasn’t the response I thought I’d get

 

Jimin:

:D I’m full of surprises

I’m paying

Also I’m picking you up at your dorm

Put on jeans

 

Suga-hyung:

I’m wearing jeans

 

Jimin:

Liar

You live in sweatpants

 

Suga-hyung:

Maybe so

Fiiiiine I’ll put on jeans but idk why I even have to

I’m in college

We’re supposed to wear sweats 24/7

 

Jimin:

Because you’re happier when you look good

 

Suga-hyung:

…what?

 

Jimin:

Sorry that was weird

Um

It’s just I’ve noticed that you tend to like

Act happier and more confident when you’re dressed up

Like

You know you look good so you feel good

I’m probably wrong I’m sorry I shouldn’t have assumed

 

Suga-hyung:

No you’re right

I’m just

Nobody has ever noticed that before

Sorry

 

Jimin:

No no I’m sorry I made it awkward

 

Suga-hyung:

You didn’t

I’m putting on jeans

 

Jimin:

:)

 

Suga-hyung:

Hey jimin

 

Jimin:

Yes?

 

Suga-hyung:

Thanks for noticing these things

And for going on all these walks with me

I know you probably have shit to do besides do nothing with me

 

Jimin:

Lol no it’s okay hyung

I need the exercise anyways

 

Suga-hyung:

Wtf do you mean you need the exercise

You’re a dancer

Is that not enough of a work out?

I’ve seen hobi at dance and it looks hard

 

Jimin:

Yeah but like

More exercise won’t kill me lol

I wont gain weight this way

 

Suga-hyung is typing…

 

Jimin:

I just wanted to return your flashdrive

Thanks for letting me use it for my presentation btw

No problem!

Ah do you think you can come meet us at that 24 hour café near campus?

 

Kookie:

[nochu created a group!]

[ Nochu has added Taebi, Joonie, Dad joke, and Hoebi to the group]

[Nochu changed the name of the group to “Serious Business”]

 

[“Serious Business”]

 

Joonie:

Kook?

 

Nochu:

I have gathered you all here today to discuss something serious

 

Dad joke:

Yeah I could tell from the chat name

Where’s yoongi?

Let me add him

 

Nochu:

No

You don’t have admin rights

 

Dad joke:

Why are you excluding yoongi?

 

Joonie:

Kook…

 

Nochu:

We have a problem

 

Taebi:

Yo what’s this?

 

Hoebi:

Jungkook was just about to explain that

Where’s jimin?

 

Nochu:

He’s part of the problem

 

Joonie:

Jungkook

Stop this

 

Nochu:

No. You were right okay?

Yoongi and Jimin are hanging out a lot

 

Hoebi:

They’re friends Jungkook

Friends hang out

We all hang out with jimin

You literally hang out with him more than the rest of us

What problem do you have with him?

 

Nochu:

I don’t have a problem with him

I have a bit of a problem with him leading on yoongi-hyung

 

Taebi:

KOOKIE ARE YOU REALLY DOING THIS RN

This is ridiculous okay you’re taking this too far

 

Nochu:

Yes! Yes okay! I am! And call me an asshole and tell me it’s too far but idc I refuse to let yoongi-hyung get hurt again like before!

You guys remember what he was like! You remember how shitty the first two months were!

 

Hoebi:

What and you think Jimin is like yoongi’s ex?

That’s ridiculous

 

Taebi:

Thank you hobi-hyung that’s exactly what I said

 

Hoebi:

Wait you knew about this?

 

Taebi:

Jungkook was freaking out about it a few weeks ago

 

Dad joke:

Okay I have a lot to say here but first I want to hear why Jungkook is so concerned about yoongi’s friendship with jimin

 

Nochu:

Look we all know jimin has a thing for yoongi-hyung

He’s not subtle

We’ve all noticed the flirting

And like I thought it was fine because who the hell wouldn’t like hyung? He’s great. People are stupid not to fall for him. But joonie made a good point and he’s a genius so he knows what he’s talking about

 

Dad joke:

What was the point made?

 

Nochu:

Joonie tell them

You explain it better

Please

 

Joonie:

…look I have nothing against jimin!

I don’t!

He’s great!

But he’s kind of reckless with people’s hearts. He likes sex (which is fine!) and he likes a lot of it. We all know it, and its nothing to be ashamed of, but I think because he’s so used to experiencing sexual attraction he’s maybe confusing it for romantic attraction to young-hyung

Aka I think he THINKS he likes hyung, but it’s just sexual attraction and general friendship feelings. And even if it’s not true, jimin has told us repeatedly in the past that he doesn’t feel like he can commit to relationships, because making a huge decision like choosing to stay with one person for the rest of his life scares him.

He’s indesicive, and hyung isn’t. Hyung is all or nothing. on the chance that yoongi-hyung develops romantic feelings for Jimin, and best case scenario jimin has actual romantic feelings for yoongi-hyung, I don’t think their relationship would last. Jimin is too afraid of commitment and he’s kind of flaky when it comes to emotional attachment (he doesn’t open up to us ever which means he wouldn’t be vulnerable with yoongi. Aka jimin would have all the emotional upper hand in the hypothetical relationship), and yoongi-hyung needs someone who will be there for him emotionally and romantically.

I don’t think jimin would be ready for that

And yoongi-hyung gets attached easy, even if he acts like he doesn’t care about anything

He’ll be crushed when jimin inevitably gets cold feet

Again! nothing against jimin, but from his behavior currently and in the past, he would more than likely end up hurting yoongi

 

Hoebi:

Jfc that’s a huge wall of txt

Lemme read it

 

Dad joke:

I read it

You make a good point, namjoon, but what if jimin changes for yoongi?

 

Joonie:

Not likely

Jimin hasn’t shown any inclination of changing thus far, and he has stated he has a crush on yoongi. He still sleeps around (even though he doesn’t talk about it with us, I’ve heard things about what he does)

 

Hoebi:

Hey

There’s no slut shaming here

 

Nochu:

He’s not slut shaming

Nobody is telling jimin that he’s a slut or even saying anything about his sleeping around. We support him and whatever the hell he does with his body

We’re just stating that he’s not gonna commit to yoongi

Which if you look at the facts, you know it’s true

 

Hoebi:

You used to sleep around, Jungkook

A lot

 

Nochu:

And I stopped when I realized I liked joonie

I changed to prove I could be with him

Jimin hasn’t done that

And he’s leading yoongi-hyung on

 

Taebi:

They’re literally just hanging out

As FRIENDS

Jimin has every right to hang out with yoongi (his friend) ((OUR friends))

 

Nochu:

I saw them hanging out today and they’re too close! Jimin is practically sitting on hyung’s lap at that 24 hour café and hyung is letting him

That’s not what friends do.

Hyung doesn’t let ANYONE touch him that much

He’s starting to like jimin and he probably doesn’t even know cuz he represses shit cuz he’s emotionally constipated

 

Dad joke:

Kookie you’re very sweet in being so protective

But yoongi can make his own decisions

He’s an adult

 

Nochu:

Yeah

And then he gets hurt from those decisions

We’re going to be the ones who have to help him get better

Because we all know yoongi will just let himself spiral and take it to mean that he’s not good enough for jimin, not that he was being used

And I don’t want to see him like that again

And it’ll hurt more because yoongi will think jimin is a friend when he isn’t

And I’m not going to let it happen

So fuck yall if you don’t wanna help me

But I’m done

Jimin doesn’t get to lead on my hyung like this

I’m not letting this situation happen again.

 

Nochu has left “Serious Business”

 

Hoebi:

Shit he’s upset

Namjoon?

 

Joonie:

I’m already on my way to find him

But he has a point and you all know it

We know what happened between them before…and we know what the fallout was…

I like jimin too, guys, but the facts are there unfortunately

he’ll probably realize his feelings aren’t romantic soon

just

let’s be cautious, yeah?

 

Dad joke:

…okay fine

We’ll be cautious

But this is ridiculous

Jimin:

Please just leave it, hyung. I appreciate you being there for me but I don’t want anyone to know

It’s not really worth the fight

 

Suga-hyung:

There’s nothing wrong with telling your friends when you’re struggling, Jimin.

 

Jimin:

I know that

I just

They can’t know. I can handle it

 

Suga-hyung:

…how about this:

You confide in me when you’re upset. I won’t tell anyone, and I’ll respect your boundaries. But you need someone to talk to. Something tells me you bottle stuff up a lot, and that’s not good for you

 

Jimin:

Please don’t take this the wrong way hyung but you really don’t know anything about me to be assuming things

 

Suga-hyung:

You’re right

I don’t know a lot about you

Because you’re so private and reserved you don’t tell me anything

But I understand you.

You have issues, and I have issues, so if anyone gets it, I do.

I’m not going to tell you how to fix your shit, because that’s your problem to deal with, but I can be here to listen to you

I’m fine

 

Suga-hyung:

It’s okay not to be okay, Jimin

Look at me

I’m not always okay

Do you look down on me?

It’s not your fault that you’re not okay

Why did you suddenly decide to confess? You’ve liked him for months now

We’re getting closer

We’ve been going on walks for a few weeks now

And like

It’s the end of the semester and

Idk

I want to

GOD FINALLY IT HURTS KNOWING YOU’RE PINING HARD FOR HIM

Okay but

He’s going to reject me

 

Fetus:

He’s going to what now

 

Chim:

Reject me

He doesn’t see me that way

 

Fetus:

Hyung

Wtf

I knew your left esteem is low but like come on there’s no way you’re right about that

 

Chim:

No listen

I know when people like me

I’m not dumb

I want to confess but I also know he’ll reject me

Like

I’m torn

He doesn’t show any of the signs people give when they like me

 

Fetus:

Maybe that’s how he shows affection?

 

Chim:

No

He’s just attracted to me but a lot of people are and that doesn’t mean they’ll like me

So I know he doesn’t like me that way

Honestly he’s probably scared off by my issues

I’m hot but I’m fucked up lol

We’re both fucked up

Yoongi-hyung won’t want to date me. He wants someone who is mentally stable enough to be good for him and that can help him when he's down

Nevermind I’m not going to confess after all

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO HYUNG NOOOOOO

Taebi:

Chimmmmmmmm

Chimminie

Come over

I have hair dye

Dye my hair please

 

Chim:

Omg I’m on my way

 

 

 

 

                They’re sitting in the bathroom sink, Taehyung’s head lathered up with hair bleach, when Jimin’s phone buzzes.

                “Ooh, who’s that?” Taehyung teases, and ever the snoop, he leans over to look at the screen of Jimin’s phone.

                “No one.” Jimin presses the screen to his chest, not even checking the notification yet. “Don’t be nosy!”

                Taehyung just sits back on the edge of the bathtub and pouts. The sight is ridiculous; there’s a plastic bag over his head (to keep in the heat and make the bleach develop faster) and a white towel around his shoulders. He looks like the type of guy who sits in his basement trying 3am informercial hair renewal products while ranting on the internet that the government is hiding aliens. The mental image of Taehyung running around with a tinfoil hat makes Jimin snicker a little—the knowledge that his friend is impulsive enough to actually do that makes his laughing even worse.

                Taehyung doesn’t say anything about Jimin’s laugh, just rolls his eyes and starts tapping away at his own phone again.

                Taking advantage of his distraction, Jimin unlocks his phone. He has a text from Yoongi.

                “Oh.” He says out loud, surprised. It was too early for Yoongi’s ‘Let’s take a walk’ text. Was everything okay?

                He opens the screen, and it’s just a picture of a bumblebee on a flower with the caption underneath saying “Here’s a bee since you have a bee obsession.”

                Jimin smiles, texts back a string of heart emojis, and puts his phone back into his pocket. Taehyung is watching him when he looks up.

                “Who was that?” He asks curiously.

                “Yoongi-hyung. He sent me a picture of a bee.”

                Taehyung smiles, box-shaped and bright as the sun. “Aw, even hyung knows you have a weird thing with bees!”

                “They’re cute!” Jimin defends. He’s not ashamed of liking bees—they’re important to the ecosystem and all they do is fly their fat, fluffy yellow bodies from flower to flower. Jimin likes to think they’re nature’s fairies—Bees don’t even sting unless you bother them!

                “How’s your crush doing?”

                The abruptness of the question throws Jimin off. It’s been a few months since he had even mentioned his crush to Taehyung (more like been forced to admit his feelings). Jimin is so subtle and private about his feelings he had assumed Taehyung had forgotten all about it. He needs to blink a couple times and really process the question before he’s able to answer. “Um…it’s fine? It’s still there, I guess.”

                Taehyung makes a face like he’s eating a particularly sour lemon. “You’re really bad at details. Have you thought about confessing to Yoongi-hyung?”

                “God no.” Jimin blurts. “I can’t. I’m not confessing.”

                The lemon-eating-face intensifies. “Why not?”

                Jimin purses his lips. Tae stares at him. Jimin shrugs. Tae stares harder, then sighs.

                “You should confess.”

                “No.” Jimin is firm on his decision. “You know it won’t work out, Tae. Relationships never work out with me.”

                Taehyung’s posture slouches, defeated, and he mumbles, “Yeah…I know…I was hoping for a different answer though.”

                Jimin doesn’t know what to say to that, so he stays silent. He checks the time on his phone. “Hey, it’s time to rinse. Let’s get rid of the copper tone now.”

                “Okay.” Taehyung says, and he’s subdued while Jimin continues to work on his hair. He responds in small, quiet sentences as Jimin rinses him off and applies the purple toner to the poor, fried strands, and falls into pensive silence in between answering direct questions Jimin asks him. Jimin wonders what could have upset his friend, but when he asks, Taehyung just says that it’s nothing.

                Taehyung isn’t his animated self again until Jungkook opens the bathroom door and blinks at the pair. Jimin has Taehyung bent over the sink, leaning over him to rinse his hair off.

                “Well this doesn’t look compromising at all.” Jungkook jokes, but his tone is off. Something about the edge to his words makes Jimin uncomfortable—it’s too close to the sneers that used to follow him in the halls. But he’s being ridiculous. These are his friends—Jimin is just being paranoid.

                “I’m going blonde.” Taehyung says from his position in the sink, and now he’s wiggling around in Jimin’s hold. “Jimin is helping me.”

                “I’m sure.” And then Jungkook laughs, and Jimin doesn’t understand what the joke was, but he assumes it’s another inside joke he doesn’t know and shrugs it off. He continues to rinse off Taehyung’s hair.

                Jungkook settles himself on the wall. “Class was a bitch today. I’m probably going to fail it, which means I can’t take the next one in the sequence next semester.”

                Jimin glances at Jungkook, let’s Taehyung straighten himself out. “Aw, Jungkookie, I’m sorry. Why don’t you go to a tutor?”

                “There’s no tutors for computer science. It’s too late in the semester to even find one anyway.” He frowns and shakes his head. “Doesn’t matter.”

                “Want me to dye your hair?” Jimin asks. He’s noticed that Jungkook reacts best to subject changes when he’s upset. The hyungs always distract Jungkook before he can get lost in his own head about his insecurities.

                He considers it and eventually declines. “No, thanks. I don’t want to burn my head. Tae’s the only one who likes his scalp hurting.”

                “Day two-hundred without sex.” Taehyung laments, his hands clutched over his chest. “I dyed my hair so Jimin’s tiny hands could remind me how much I love having my hair pulled.”

                Jimin stumbles away from Taehyung, cheeks flaming. “Kim Taehyung!”

                Jungkook is cackling, loud and obnoxious, while Taehyung is just pouting up at Jimin. “Pull my hair again, Jiminie. I need to remember what it feels like to be dominated.”

                Jimin backs even further away from Tae, shaking his head. “No! No no. No, I’m not indulging your kinks—”

                Jungkook doubles over in tears, “This is a kinkshame free zone!”

                Taehyung sighs, runs his hands through his hair—or rather, he tries. His fingers get caught in the bleached strands and he makes a face before deciding not to try an untangle it. “You’re no fun.”

                “I’m plenty fun, just not to my friends.”

                “Prude.”

                “Jimin gets more sex than all of us combined.” Jungkook pipes in. “Prude is literally the last word you could have chosen to describe him.”

                The wording doesn’t sit well with Jimin, but he lets it go. Jungkook probably didn’t mean anything by his wording, and it’s not like he’s wrong. Jimin does have a lot of sex. Sure, he’s been cutting down, but his friends don’t know that. He doesn’t try to advertise his sex life, so he hasn’t found a need to mention the lack-of-sex-life either. It’s not like whether he sleeps with someone or not is their business, anyways, so he doesn’t mind if his friends assume he’s having more fun than he is. Jimin isn’t the type to announce that he’s going somewhat celibate because of his hopeless crush on Yoongi (Jimin knows it’s hopeless regardless of how many times Taehyung might try to convince him otherwise; people don’t actually like Jimin. They like that he’s hot and that he’s easy; beyond that, Jimin is just a hassle to deal with. His past relationships are all examples of this fact). He’s just going to keep his sex life to himself and let them speculate.

What harm can it do to let his friends keep believing what keeps them amused?

                He misses the sharp look Tae cast Jungkook.

                “Hey, why don’t we dye your hair, Jimin?”

                “No, I like the blond.” He pushes some strands out of his face. “I’m going to keep it for a while longer. Tae, you’re the only one who wanted a change today.”

                “I’m a trendsetter.”

                “You’re definitely something.” Jungkook rolls his eyes. He walks out of the bathroom, leaving Jimin and Tae behind, and Jimin starts gathering his stuff.

                “I should start heading back to my dorm.” He says.

                Taehyung shakes his head. “No. We’re watching a movie.”

                “All we ever do is watch movies.”

                “Oh, I’m sorry. Would his highness like to rob a bank?”

                Jimin giggles. “It’d pay my tuition, so yeah. Let’s do it.”

                Taehyung pushes Jimin lightly, snorting. “I can’t believe you’re a criminal. Come on, we’ll watch that magic movie where they rob a bank.”

                “This is why we’re soulmates.”

Nochu:

Please tell me I’m not the only one who noticed how obvious jimin was flirting in the chat

 

Joonie:

No, I noticed too

 

Taebi:

He was just being playful!

Jimin does that with us all the time kook, come on

 

Hoebi:

Tae’s right

 

Taebi:

Of course I am

I know my soulmate

 

Nochu:

Well whatever

He’s not subtle

AND YOONGI FLIRTING BACK WTF

 

Dad joke:

He doesn’t have to be subtle about his crush, Jungkook

You weren’t about namjoon

 

Nochu:

That’s different.

 

Dad joke:

Let him be

Yoongi is having fun

He was smiling at his phone

They’re friends, like we all are

Isn’t it good that jimin is comfortable enough to joke with yoongi?

 

Nochu:

☹ okay I may have overreacted…

Sorry hyungs…

 

Dad joke:

It’s okay Jungkook <3 we know you’re just worried about yoongi

But maybe just…relax a little bit with that protective streak of yours, yeah?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

[Private Chat: "LOML"]

 

Monie:

Baby

Jungkook

 

Ggukie:

…yes I’m here

<3

 

Monie:

<3

Are you okay?

You seem on edge lately

 

Ggukie:

I’m okay

I’m just stressed

 

Monie:

Wanna talk about it?

It’s not good to hold things in

 

Ggukie:

…yeah I wanna talk about it…

 

Monie:

I’m here to listen <3

 

Ggukie:

I love you <3

Okay here I go

…yoongi hyung is ignoring me

And I’m really stressed because my finals are going to be ridiculously hard so I’ve been studying super hard for them, so when I have time for hyung he doesn’t anymore

He’s probably busy too but I miss being able to come over and be emo together

 

Monie:

Okay first,

You’re so cute <3

Second: I’m sure he’s not ignoring you

You should tell him you want to spend time with him. He’s probably overworking himself and needs a break anyways

 

Ggukie:

But he always has time for jimin…

I know they hang out a lot now ☹

Which is fine!

 

Monie:

But?

 

Ggukie:

…this is stupid

I feel so dumb now that I have to say it

 

Monie:

Nothing about you is dumb

 

Ggukie:

<3

Okay

It feels like he’s replacing me with jimin

And it’s not fair because

Because jimin isn’t even all that great? I’m hyung’s best friend. I’ve been there through everything

I was there when he went to the hospital and now he doesn’t talk to me and he gives jimin his favorite hoodie which he never let me use and

And jimin tells yoongi-hyung when he’s upset instead of telling me or tae

He opens up to yoongi, but not to me or tae and it’s just

Not fair

And WE’RE supposed to be jimin’s friends, not yoongi

Yoongi and hobi and jin are your friends and they know MY friends through me

…I sound like a spoiled brat

 

Monie:

I understand how you feel

But gguk

You gotta understand that yoongi can make other friends

And if jimin feels comfortable with yoongi, it’s a good thing

 

Ggukie:

I know that

But I don’t like that he’s replacing me with my own friend

And the same thing with jimin

They’re both replacing me and it’s even more stressful because I know that they’ll never work out

Because jimin won’t be able to handle yoongi when yoongi has his relapses

And then yoongi will be worse because he’ll expect jimin to help and jimin won’t

I’m so scared of when that happens and I want to prevent it because nobody knows hyung like I do and I KNOW that jimin won’t stick around

 

Monie:

I’ll be there soon okay? Then we can talk more

I have your banana milk

 

Ggukie:

Okay

I love you

<3

Oh.

They are

Okay

Thanks

 

Fetus:

Hyung what happened?

 

Chim:

Some people here started mentioning the rumors again

They came up and asked me if I would actually sleep with them for a couple won

 

Fetus:

Wtf

You’re not a prostitute wtf

Are you okay?

 

Chim:

Idk

I don’t really care usually, you know? But yoongi-hyung was around

Like he heard them

And it felt really really shitty to know that hyung probably knows that I’m a slut now

 

Fetus:

You’re not a slut.

Don’t fucking say that.

Are you okay? Was he mean?

 

Chim:

No

He was really nice actually

Like he was too nice idk

I don’t deserve him being so nice to me

The rumors spread for a reason, right?

 

Fetus:

Wtf does that mean

 

Chim:

Don’t get mad

I should’ve seen it coming that rumors would start

I’m not exactly subtle with who I sleep with

Or like

Picky

 

Fetus:

You better not be implying what I think you are

There’s nothing wrong with having sex

 

Chim:

But I have it a lot and there’s something wrong with that, right?

I knew that rumors would spread I just didn’t think they’d get so bad, you know?

And things are better here! But I’m still finding people at parties and its only natural that it would happen again

I’m desensitized

I just didn’t want my friends to hear about it

Or yoongi

I haven’t even slept with anyone in weeks ji

 

Fetus:

Why cuz you’re in love with him?

 

Chim:

I’m not in love with him

I like him, yes

But I’m not in love yet

 

Fetus:

What did he do when he heard them? You said he was nice

 

Chim:

Well okay so

I kinda ran off

 

Fetus:

Hyung

 

Chim:

Don’t judge me!

I was upset

They said mean things

So like a coward I ran into the nearest bathroom which was across campus

And he kept texting me and asking where I was

And I didn’t wanna tell him cuz I didn’t want him to like

Hate me

Or judge me or something cuz ya know

I didn’t wanna see that

But he made me tell him and he showed up and I was in the bathroom stall trying not to have a panic attack

And he like

Knocked on the door

And I didn’t want to let him in

 

Fetus:

Did he like bust through the door?

 

Chim:

No

I thought he would

But he like sighed

And I heard it all loud and it scared me right

But then through the door he said “jimin you can either open the door and talk to me or I can crawl in there and we can BOTH be uncomfortable”

And like I couldn’t say anything cuz I’m still trying not to freak out

And next thing I know hyung was crawling through the bottom of the stall door

And he like stood up and made a really grossed out face and I thought it was about me

Because of the stuff I’ve done

But he wiped his hands and said “they never clean these fucking bathrooms”

And I laughed a little bit cuz like that’s the last thing I thought he would say and I kept waiting for him to insult me but all he did was like ask me if he could hold my hands cuz holding hands calms him down (which wtf why is he so cute he’s already hot and has a great personality so wtf)

And he held my hands and told me that the people who were talking were assholes

And then we went out for food like we were going to and he held my hands the entire way there

 

Fetus:

Wtf

That’s adorable

What the fuck

 

Chim:

I know

Shut up

it doesn't mean anything.

 

Fetus:

No wtf you held hands with your man

That’s like fifth base

 

Chim:

Pretty sure holding hands isn’t fifth base

 

Fetus:

Shut up you hoe for you it’s momentous

You have sex yea

But you don’t do sentimental shit with any of them

 

Chim:

You make me sound like a mean person

 

Fetus:

There’s nothing wrong with having sex. You don’t lead anyone on when you do it

 

Chim:

I try not to

 

Fetus:

Yeah so you’re fine

Having a lot of sex isn’t a big deal

Same with not ever having sex

It’s just a thing

 

Chim:

I guess

 

Fetus:

Hey can I ask a personal question

 

Chim:

You’re my brother

Of course you can’t

 

Fetus:

Ha ha

Funny

How come you keep doing this is you hate the rumors?

 

Chim:

Oh

We’re going deep deep

Idk hyunie sex feels good

I like feeling connected to people and relationships never worked out for me

You know that

People don’t like me. They like sleeping with me, but they don’t want me

This is what I get

 

Fetus:

Minnnnnnnnn a few bad boyfriends doesn’t mean all relationships are doomed for you!

 

Chim:

It’s not a few bad boyfriends

I’m not the relationship type~

I’m too much which is okay

And I like how things are >:( sex is fun

 

Fetus:

But you hate the rumors?

 

Chim:

The rumors only recently started back up

And like I said I haven’t been sleeping around like before

I cut back a lot

They’ll die down soon, it’s fine

 

Fetus:

You cut back?

Ohhhhh

OHHH I seeeee e😉

You’re cutting back for yoonngiiiiiiiiiii

 

Chim:

Fetus:

Chim:

Fetus:

Chim:

8:11PM FRIDAY 8 DECEMBER

[Private Chat: “fine wine”]

 

Yoongles:

Hyung

Let’s go out tonight

 

Jin:

For why?

 

Yoongles:

It’s the end of the semester

I haven’t slept with anyone since the end of the term last year

I want dick

 

Jin:

I didn’t need to know any of that

 

Yoongles:

Also kook and joon make me feel really single

And I know they make you feel single too

So lets go out and not be single for the night to celebrate the end of this hell term

 

Jin:

Maybe

 

Yoongles:

Lets go then

Get sexy

 

Jin:

Maybe we should ask jimin where he goes for his hook ups

 

Yoongles:

You know what

That’s actually a great idea

Text him and ask him

 

Jin:

I’m not gonna ask jimin where he goes for his hook ups, yoongi

I was joking

 

Yoongles:

Why not?

 

Jin:

Well first of all it’s rude

Second of all it’s rude

Third of all that seems kind of

Idk

 

Yoongles:

Rude?

 

Jin:

No, invasive

And rude obvi

But no don’t you think it’s really invasive to ask where he goes? We both know he’s really weird about his sexscapades

 

Yoongles:

Yeah

But

Ugh I hate it when you make sense

 

Jin:

Hey here’s a wild thought

Why don’t you NOT have sex and have a self care night

 

Yoongles:

Self care is getting dicked down good

 

Jin:

Yoongi, No

 

Yoongles:

Yoongi, yes

Lmao maybe I should just ask jimin

 

Jin:

….

Min yoongi you better not be implying what I think you are

 

Yoongles:

Maybe I am

Idk

Would that be weird?

 

Jin:

Asking your friend to sleep with you?

Yeah yoongi I’d say that’s a little weird

 

Yoongles:

Friends with benefits exist

 

Jin:

You don’t do friends with benefits

You literally get emotionally attached to anyone you hug, yoongi

You whine to have your hand held when you’re pretending to be drunk

You literally would not be able to have a friend with benefits with anyone

 

Yoongles:

I could be friends with benefits with jimin

 

Jin:

No you couldn’t

Besides, he wouldn’t do that

I’ve never heard him mention the same name twice

And no offense but I don’t think jimin would want to be friends with benefits with someone he’s so close to

I know he treats sex casually but I don’t think he treats it THAT casual

He’s gotta have some limits, right?

 

Yoongles:

Yeahhh but the difference is

I’m me

I’m awesome

And like I think it would work

We’re good friends now

And I like him and he likes me so

We’re compatible

 

Jin:

The fact that you’re good friends makes it an even worse idea

Look

We’ll go out

And you’ll get sloppy drunk and maybe sleep with someone

And we leave jimin out of it

 

Yoongles:

But jin listen

He’s really cute

No

He’s hot

Like objectively jimin is really hot

And his ass?

MMMMMMMMMM

🤤🤤🤤

 

Jin:

Jfc

How drunk are you?

we do not objectify our friends, yoongi

 

Yoongles:

I’m not

I’m just

Okay I had like two shots but I’m fiiine

Idk

he’s hot

And I’m only human

 

Jin:

Get dressed

We’re going out before you jump park jimin

 

Yoongles:

Okay that’s probably a good idea

Sleeping with jimin would be bad

Even if he has a good ass and probably has good dick game

he’s my friend and sleeping with friends is bad

ruins friendships

and I don’t wanna ruin my friendship with jimin

no matter how hot he is

jfjkdfhkdjghdkjg

 

Jin:

Yoongi stop talking

 

Yoongles:

Why do you always silence me ☹

Yoongi-hyung:

You know there’s nothing wrong with hickies

But jeez they went to town on your neck

 

Jimin:

Please stop talking about it

I was very drunk otherwise I would’ve stopped him before he got so many

☹ it’s embarrassing to have to hide them

 

Yoongi-hyung:

Concealer

Anyways thanks for the food and coffee

You didn’t have to leave btw

I know your asshole roommate is still there

 

Jimin:

I’m a horrible person

 

Jin:

No the fuck you’re not

You’re incredible

What’s wrong?

Who do I fight?

 

Yoongles:

My dick

 

Jin:

What

 

Yoongles:

I’m an asshole

Jimin came over and fell asleep and jfc the bruises on his neck

 

I wish i couldve taken a picture but goddamn the kid knows when a camera is on him

IS IT BAD THAT I’M KIND OF MAD AT HIM FOR THIS? BUT LIKE LOW KEY I’M GETTING A LITTLE HORNY FROM IT?

 

Jin:

Y E S

YOONGI THAT’S HORRIBLE

Wait

You’re mad at him?

Why?

 

Yoongles:

I know!

I know and I feel so bad

Because he didn’t even want me to see but I like

Ripped the scarf he was wearing off cuz I was messing with him and my dumbass asked is he was hiding hickies

Like jokingly

BUT HE WAS

AND HE WAS SO EMBARRASSED

AND MY DICK WAS HARD BECAUSE I’M AN ASSHOLE

AND I FEEL BAD

And yeah idk I’m kind of mad at him? Like.

Idk.

He doesn’t tell me about any of this stuff. Like he can’t trust me or something

And I tell him pretty much everything

He even knows about my weird thing with holding hands

 

Jin:

I DON’T WANT TO HEAR THIS ANYMORE

In a desperate attempt to change the subject

Do you need a ride to the pharmacy to get your prescription refil?

 

Yoongles:

Oh

Yeah I do

Thank you for reminding me

 

Jin:

You’re welcome 😊

I’m free tomorrow in the morning

Wake up on time and we’ll go

 

Yoongles:

Okay

Help me feel less like a shitty person please

 

Jin:

Okay

Look

Just because you think jimin is hot you’re not a bad person

It’s a normal reaction to find certain physical things arousing

Just

Don’t act on them?

Keep them to yourself

And I understand being upset about Jimin not opening up, but from what I hear he doesn’t talk to anyone

He’s just a private person. I don’t think it’s anything personal against you

 

Yoongles:

Okay

You’re right

I’m not gonna act on them btw I just

Shocked

 

Jin:

That’s fine

But remember

Jimin isn’t someone you can just sleep with, okay?

 

Yoongles:

He’s just hot

He’s my friend

I know that

I just needed you to confirm that I wasn’t being horrible for finding him hot

Cuz that’s sleazy right? It’s sleazy to sexualize your friend like that

 

Jin:

There’s nothing wrong with that just remember who he is, yeah?

 

Yoongles:

You give good advice when you aren’t being an asshole

 

Jin:

How about you try being a ray of fucking sunshine while in grad school min yoonki bitch

 

Yoongles:

Jesus okay sorry

That’s fucking right

And so now I have to study too but I want food

Bring me food

Get your own food

 

Nochu:

Mind your own fucking business.

 

Chim:

Jungkook.

 

Nochu:

Fuck off.

I want chicken, not you hopping on the bandwagon again.

 

Dad joke:

Jungkook.

I understand that you’re stressed but you need to remember that Jimin is still your hyung.

 

Nochu:

He’s too short to be a hyung.

 

Sleepy boi:

Jeon Jungkook.

Enough.

 

Nochu:

…I’m sorry

I was over the line

It’s fine.

I’m going to go study now. Turning my phone off 😊

I don’t have a problem

 

Sleepy-hyung:

Try again

Don’t lie to me.

You’re never that disrespectful

 

Brat:

I wasn’t talking to him

He didn’t have to butt in like that

 

Sleepy-hyung:

You said ‘hyungs’

That’s all of us

Why did you come at him like that? specifically jimin? 

 

Brat:

I already apologized

It doesn’t matter why I snapped

Jin hyung is already telling me what I did wrong I don’t need you to do it too

 

Sleepy-hyung:

Okay why are you mad?

Are you really that upset that namjoon isn’t around? what's going on with you?

 

Brat:

No.

I’m not that childish

Jesus

 

sleepy-hyung:

Then what?

Why are you pissier than usual

 

Brat:

I’m stressed and tired, okay?

I almost failed my class and this one is even harder and I don’t know how to fix it

 

sleepy-hyung:

Okay

I’m sorry you’re stressed

But that’s no excuse to snap at everyone

What would namjoon say if he saw that?

 

Brat:

Don’t lecture me like a child

I’m not a child, hyung. I don’t need you to yell at me like I am

Namjoon-hyung would understand why I’m upset.

 

sleepy-hyung:

Oh, so I don’t?

So you get a boyfriend and suddenly being your bestfriend since childhood is nothing? You don’t need anyone but him? Don’t want me anymore?

Suddenly I don’t know you as well as your boyfriend does?

Well if you don’t need me then fine.

I’ll leave.

 

Brat:

No, hyung

No no no

That’s not what I meant

I just

 

sleepy-hyung:

No I get it

I understand perfectly

Go find namjoon to talk with

He understands you better

 

Brat:

 No no no

Hyung no please I’m sorry

I didn’t mean it like that

Hyung please

[Private Chat: “walk buddies”]

 

Yoongi-hyung:

Jimin

 

Jimin:

Hey hyung

Sorry I’m studying right now I can’t go on a walk ☹

 

Yoongi-hyung:

Can I come over please

I don’t want to take a stupid walk

I just want to come over

 

Jimin:

Yeah of course

Hang on let me tell Jaegyu to leave

Okay he’s gone

Come over

Are you okay?

 

Yoongi-hyung:

No

No I’m not okay

 

Jimin:

Can I hug you?

 

Yoongi-hyung:

Park jimin if you don’t hug me I will physically break down and cry

Please hug me

 

Jimin:

Okay

I’ll hug the shit out of you

Are you almost here? Do you need me to meet you anywhere?

 

Yoongi-hyung:

I’m outside of your building

Let me in

Please

 

Jimin:

I’m running

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Jimin is panicking a little. (That’s a lie: Jimin is panicking a lot). The texts from Yoongi were so visibly distressed Jimin was even feeling on edge from them. Even through the phone screen, where the tones and inflictions of the human voice were lost, Yoongi had seemed very, very upset, and Jimin wasn’t used to being the person anyone went to when they were very, very upset.

 

But he had accepted Yoongi, of course, because how could he not? How could he ignore Yoongi’s obvious reach for help? How could Jimin not bend over backwards for Yoongi?

 

So, panicking as badly as he was, Jimin ran down three flights of stairs (nearly killing himself in the process as he tripped on the last flight) and to the entrance of his dorm building.

 

Yoongi is already outside of the main entrance, pacing and holding his head in his hands. Jimin’s fingers shake as he throws open the front doors. “Hey hyung—”

 

Yoongi turns to Jimin, and oh. Oh, that’s an expression Jimin never wants to see on his favorite hyung’s face.

 

Red rimmed eyes, tightly pursed lips, messed up hair, and something wild and distressed in his eyes, Yoongi looks like he’s on the verge of a mental breakdown. According to his earlier texts, that’s exactly what was happening. He looks at Jimin and tries for a smile; it falls flat. Honestly, it’s a mocking attempt of a smile compared to the brightness of Yoongi’s actual gummy smile.

 

Jimin spreads his arms out. “C’mere hyung.”

 

Yoongi doesn’t need to be told twice. His voice cracks as he says “Hi”, and his expression crumbles as he rushes right into Jimin’s open arms. Jimin caught a glimpse of the first round of tears that had leaked through Yoongi’s eyes before he’d had an armful of crying hyung. He hears the shuddered sob muffled into the crook of his neck, and responds by tightening his grip on Yoongi.

 

Normally, Yoongi is the same size as Jimin. In this moment, he’s clearly doing everything he can to make himself as small as possible within Jimin’s embrace. Yoongi is shaking even as Jimin rubs his small hands in circles on his back, and he’s making aborted attempts at controlling his sobs.

 

Maybe Jimin’s heart shatters with every sob Yoongi tries to muffle. Maybe Jimin feels something like anger at whatever caused his strongest hyung to feel like this.

 

“Shh, hyung.” Jimin sooths. “It’s okay. You’re okay.”

 

Over and over, Jimin repeats variations of those phrases until he notices some of his floormates stepping out of the elevator across the lounge. Jimin glares at them when they look his way, maneuvering Yoongi away from their prying eyes.

 

“We’re gonna go upstairs, okay?” Jimin says quietly to Yoongi, and reluctantly he loosens his hold. Immediately, Yoongi starts to push himself away, but Jimin only slips his arm across Yoongi’s shoulders and pulls him into his side; he’s still hiding Yoongi from view even as he leads the elder to the elevator. He doesn’t let go when the elevator doors slide shut, and he doesn’t let go when the doors slide open again on the third floor.

 

Jimin only dares to let go of Yoongi when the door to his dorm room is firmly shut and locked behind them, and Yoongi himself is pulling away, his arms wrapped around his own torso.

 

“Do you want to talk about it?” Jimin asks, holding his arms out again. The invitation is clear. “Or do you want to just cuddle and cry it out? We can even hold hands—I know it’s calming for you to do so.”

 

Yoongi takes a second to think and then he’s invading Jimin’s space again, hugging him just as tightly as before. Jimin wonders why he’s never noticed that Yoongi likes hugs. Yoongi mutters some words against Jimin’s shoulder, which Jimin works out to be something like “Jungkook is replacing me with Namjoon.”

 

“That’s not true.” Jimin frowns. “It’s not—no, listen to me.” He was younger, but right now Jimin felt like he had to act like he did with his brother Jihyun. He needed to control the situation before it got even more out of hand. “Jungkookie loves you. He’s basically your brother. I’m sure you just misunderstood. What happened?”

 

He’s listening for an explanation, but Yoongi doesn’t give one. He only shoves his phone into Jimin’s hands and keeps hugging.

 

Confused, Jimin looks at the screen. It’s open to a chat log between Jungkook and Yoongi. From over Yoongi’s shoulder, Jimin could clearly see that messages are still flooding in, Jungkook begging for Yoongi to answer, apologizing over and over again.

 

“Jungkook keeps messaging you. He says he’s sorry.”

 

Yoongi shake his head. “Don’t care. Doesn’t mean it.”

 

Clearly they weren’t going to get anywhere with that subject. With a small sigh, Jimin locks Yoongi’s phone and gently tosses it onto his bed.

 

“Okay. Alright. Are you okay? No, that’s a stupid question, of course you’re not okay.”

 

Jimin counts the watery laugh that Yoongi lets out as a win.

 

“Is something else bothering you?” He asks instead.

 

Yoongi hesitates, then exhales. “Yes? No? I don’t know. There’s so much. I’m so behind on my assignments because I’m too depressed to do them. Jungkook has been getting more and more distant with me and everyone seems to have their shit together but me. I’m supposed to be better on these meds, but they’re just making me too tired to do anything. I’m fucking up my songs, and every time I feel like something is manageable, I have ten more things thrown at me. I’m a mess, and Jungkook is starting to see that and now he doesn’t want me again but it’s worse now, because he’s replacing me with Namjoon who’s perfect like I’m not and I can’t fucking handle that. I’m a horrible person who can’t handle his best friend being happy because he doesn’t want me just like every other person? My best friend doesn’t fucking want me, Jimin, and why the fuck would he?”

 

“Oh.” Eyes wide, Jimin waits for Yoongi to finish. He’s fumbling with words, frustrated and still hugging Jimin. “I-I want you, hyung.”

 

Jimin wants to swallow back his last sentence, but Yoongi doesn’t even see to be listening to him.

 

“I kind of want to fucking stop trying.” Yoongi breathes out. It’s quieter than his rambling, like he’s afraid of the words he’s saying. Jimin is terrified; Yoongi’s words are driving nails into the soles of his feet, rooting him in place with heavy implications. “I just…Do you ever realize how easy it would be? I could take the elevator and go to the top floor of any building and just. Drop. I could take all of my meds and I kind of want to, Jimin, and that scares me. I don’t want to die, but I want to just stop existing. Does that even make sense?”

 

It does. It makes so much sense a part of Jimin aches.

 

“Yeah.” Jimin breathes. “I understand.”

 

“I’m not going to do it.” Yoongi continues. “But I could. It’d be easier than this. I’d stop fucking up. I’d stop feeling so useless and people would finally want me back because everyone loves you when you’re dead and…and Jimin, I want everything to stop and it isn’t. Everything keeps going and it’s just too much.

 

“It’s too much.”

 

Jimin understands. Oh, how he understands. He’s aware of the crushing pressure of his own breathing, like his lungs are telling him they’re just as tired as his brain is. He knows the static of his thoughts building up until the pressure in his chest becomes pressure in his brain, and he has to leave and find something to distract him, anything, because Jimin doesn’t know what he’s capable of doing when he’s alone. He understands perfectly well needing to extinguish his own existence, even for a night, but being unable to; the next day pretending that he hadn’t stared into the void and craved that it devour him whole. Jimin understands; he wishes Yoongi didn’t.

 

“Yeah. It is. I’m sorry. I wish I knew how to make it better.”

 

“Me too.”

 

Yoongi doesn’t say anything else. He’s not sobbing anymore, just clinging to Jimin. Eventually, standing in the middle of the room becomes uncomfortable, so he shuffles them over to his bed. It’s too small, way too small for two full grown men, but Yoongi doesn’t seem to care that the small bed makes him cling to Jimin, half on top of him, and Jimin clings back, his heart pounding. His heart is pounding so bad, Yoongi can definitely feel it, but he doesn’t say anything.

 

Outside, the campus is buzzing with life, but inside the room, Jimin and Yoongi are paused, breathing and existing and feeling too much and nothing at all.

Chim:

I need help

 

Fetus:

Who do I need to kill?

 

Chim:

Not that kind of help

I need emotion help

This crush on Yoongi isn’t going away

I thought that by now it would have faded away and I wouldn’t have to worry about it but

It hasn’t

 

Fetus:

Oh

Oh hyung

You really like him

 

Chim:

Yeah

I don’t want to

But I do

And it isn’t going away

I really like him, ji

 

Fetus:

You should tell him

Maybe he feels the same?

 

Chim:

No

He doesn’t

I don’t want to ruin our friendship

But I don’t know what to do with these feelings

And I just

He doesn’t help make them go away.

He’s so good and kind to me

And he’s always holding my hand now when we hang out because it calms his anxiety down and

And he’s just so good and I don’t want to fuck anything up with feelings again

 

Fetus:

You should at least tell one of your friends

They know yoongi more than I do

They can help you figure out what to do

Please, hyung

I think it’ll be good

 

Chim:

I don’t know…

What if they laugh at me?

It’s kind of pathetic to get feelings for one of your friends, right?

 

Fetus:

Wrong.

Look, I don’t know much about yoongi

But from what you’ve told me about him (a lot)

He seems really nice

And genuine

Honestly, hyung, if you DIDN’T have feelings for him I’d be surprised

Your friends won’t make fun of you

They’ll support you like I do

 

Chim:

I’m scared

 

Fetus:

Of what?

 

Chim:

What if they tell him?

And he rejects me?

What if he thinks I’m only around him because I want to date him? Or fuck him?

I don’t want him to think I’m using him

I really like him…

I don’t want these feelings to ruin our friendship

 

Fetus:

Then he’s an asshole if he does

But he doesn’t seem like one

Please Jimin

Tell one of your friends

You gotta start trusting people other than me…

 

Chim:

…yeah

Okay yeah you’re right

Thank you <3

 

Fetus:

Anything for my favorite brother <3

 

Chim:

I’m your only brother but alright <3

 

Fetus:

I was trying to be nice >:(

Yeah

There

I fixed it

This is our stage name hyung

We’re gonna present the best fucking song ever under this name

 

Min Suga:

Jiminie

We’re not presenting like that

 

Jiminie:

☹ why not

I think it’s cute

 

Min suga:

Okay it’s cute

But

I’m not cute

 My image is bad boy rapper, Minnie

I can't mess with my label

 

Jiminie:

Hyung

You’re cute

And I’m cute

We’re going to be Min-Squared

AND WE'RE GOING TO BE ADORABLE

No

Yes

Jiminie:

And in conclusion

I think you should sing with me

You literally CAN'T say no to the compelling argument i just gave okay

 

Min suga:

Nah

I don’t sing

 

Jiminie:

Hyung…

This is a vocal class

You gotta sing

 

Min suga:

…jokes on you the teacher already said I could rap melodiously

 

Jiminie:

>:( I will make you sing

MARK MY WORDS, MIN YOONGI HYUNG, YOU. WILL. SING

 

 

 

 

3:28AM SATURDAY 10 FEBRUARY 

Min suga:

Are you awake?

 

Jiminie:

Yeah

Are you okay?

 

Min suga:

I’m fine

I’m just in a weird mindset right now

Why aren’t you sleeping?

 

Jiminie:

I’m also in a weird mindset

 

Min suga:

Are you okay?

 

Jiminie:

I’m fine

Just thinking

Do you want a distraction?

 

Min suga:

Yeah

Please

I don’t have the motivation to get up and go for our walks though…

 

Jiminie:

Let’s play twenty questions then

 

Min suga:

Okay

You first

 

Jiminie:

Okay!

Why did you decide on your major?

 

Min suga:

…I was expecting a favorite color question but damn you went all in

I respect that

I chose audio production so I could make music. I heard a lot of songs as a kid that made me want to make my own music, and then for a while I was listening to soundcloud rappers and (this is going to sound so egotistical) it sounded shitty. I wanted to do better, and I wanted to put something out into the world

Actually

I wanted to be an idol for a while, but that was a stupid idea

I wouldn’t make it as an idol

But I still want to make music. Maybe I can make songs for idols to perform, maybe I just make music for myself

I just want to be able to put my ideas out there and make people feel things

 

Jiminie:

Woah

I think you would’ve been a great idol

 

Min suga:

Jimin

I can’t dance

That’s kind of required for idols

 

Jiminie:

…there are teachers

I’m sure you would’ve been a great dancer

 

Min suga:

If you say so

Why did you transfer schools?

 

Jiminie:

Oh

I didn’t feel welcome in my other school

Um

Haha okay so um

Remember what those people were saying when I ran off?

 

Min suga:

…yeah

 

Jiminie:

Okay well

That happened a lot at my old school

I have sex a lot, hyung

And people don’t like that

They talk about it a lot

And rumors spread and it got annoying so I left the first chance I could

 

Min suga:

There’s nothing wrong with having sex. Having a lot of it, or having none of it. Sex is nobody's business but your own

 

Jiminie:

Thank you  for saying that <3

But that’s my tragic backstory lol

 

Min suga:

Hey

Were you bullied before?

 

Jiminie:

Why would you ask that?

 

Min suga:

You don’t have to tell me

I just

When people spread rumors, stupid people believe stupid rumors and do stupid shit

And they take it out on the victim (aka you)

So

I need to know if there’s anyone I need to fight

 

Jiminie:

Besides my roommate? 😂😂😂

It’s okay

I don’t see them anymore

I got bullied a little but it wasn’t anything I couldn’t handle

But thank you <3

 

Min suga:

<3

Your turn

 

Jiminie:

Oh! Okay um

How did you and everyone get so close?

 

Min suga:

You haven’t heard this story yet?

 

Jiminie:

No :’) sorry

 

Min suga:

It’s fine

It’s nothing exciting. I’ve known Kook since we were kids. His family came to Daegu a lot in the summers, and my parents used to be close to his through work so we spent a lot of time together. Taehyung I met in highschool. He stole my lyric notebook thinking it was his sketchbook and we’ve been hanging out ever since. Joon and Hobi I met on some online forums for a rapper group; they were looking for a third member and they liked the demos I sent them. When I moved to seoul after graduating high school we met up a lot and figured out we were in the same university. Jin was my roommate my first year and we clicked

And then you were dropped into my lap this year

 

Jiminie:

I came late :’)

 

Min suga:

It’s okay

You’re one of us now

Doesn’t matter if it’s only been for a year

 

Jiminie:

…thank you 😊

I’m really glad to hear that

Sometimes it feels like I’m just bothering you guys

 

Min suga:

Jiminie

I can assure you that everyone bothers everyone

It’s how we work

We irritate the fuck out of each other but we love each other in the end

We care about you

 

Jiminie:

<3

I care about you too

All of you

A lot

You guys are really good friends to me and I’m glad I have you <3

 

Min suga:

My turn

When did you start dying your hair?

 

Jiminie:

That’s random

Uhhh I was 18

I thought it would be cool to change my hair up and I’ve been doing it ever since

I’m actually due for a color change soon but idk what it will be

 

Min suga:

Orange

 

Jiminie:

Only if you dye yours green

 

Min suga:

Fuck no

 

Jiminie:

Then it looks like I’m not doing orange 😊

Jiminie:

No no

You didn’t

I’m just being paranoid haha

Sometimes I get anxious in public but it’s fine it’s not your fault

 

Min suga:

You should’ve told me

We could’ve stayed in

 

Jiminie:

No it’s okay! It’s not a big deal

You wanted to go out

 

Min suga:

But you were uncomfortable

Tell me next time you’re feeling anxious

Please

I want you to have fun when we hang out too

your feelings and comfort matter

 

Jiminie:

It’s really not a big deal

I’m overreacting

 

Min suga:

You’re not

Promise me you’ll tell me? I feel really bad when you’re uncomfortable and it’s my fault

Okay hyung

I’m stupid

I’m so stupid I was lonely and jaegyu was here

And his friends were here too and they just

They kept making fun of me

and telling me things I already know but I didn’t wanna hear it I’m not in the mood

and I left

I left and I kept walking and there was a club and I went in because it’s loud enough I don’t have to think there and it was fine for a while

I was having fun

 

Min suga:

What happened?

 

Jiminie:

They were laughing at me

I don’t even know who the fuck they were but they clearly fucking knew me.

And I know it was at me because they were pointing and I was going to ignore it but they came over and

And they asked me how much for a night

I’m not like that

I’m not

Hyung you have to believe me I’m not like that

 

Min suga:

I know you’re not like that jimin

It’s okay

Hyung is just being overprotective

 

Dad joke:

Jimin?

You can talk to us <3

What’s wrong?

 

Chim:

I don’t want to talk about it

It was humiliating.

Please drop it.

What happened to chim?

Is he okay?

He doesn’t seem okay

He’s shutting me out again

He always shuts me out, hyung and I just want to be there for him :(

 

Agust d:

 I want to tell you

But

 

V:

But chim told you not to :(

 

Agust d:

No

Its not my story to tell

He’ll tell you when he’s calmed down

 

V:

…I’m worried about him, hyung

He's my bestfriend I just want him to be okay and he doesn't seem to be but he won't let me help :(

Min suga:

You should tell them

They’re worried about you, jimin

You can’t just hold everything in

We’re your friends, and we’re here for you <3

 

Jiminie:

Hyung

It’s not important

It’s fine

I can handle it

 

Min suga:

You were crying when I picked you up, jimin.

Hysterically. You literally were shaking as I hugged you

I know you can handle it on your own, but you don’t have to

 

Jiminie:

They can’t know

I don’t want them to hate me

 

Min suga:

Why tf would they hate you for being bullied?

 

Jiminie:

Cuz it’s my fault?

Hyung even you have to admit that if I didn’t sleep around, none of this would happen

It’s fine.

I can handle it.

I’m not weak.

 

Min suga:

They won’t hate you

They’ll support you

That’s what friends do

They don’t hate me for being fucked up

 

Jiminie:

That’s different

You didn’t choose to be depressed. I make the decision every day to go out and sleep around.

They’ll see it’s different, too

 

Min suga:

It literally isn’t.

The problem isn’t who you sleep with, Minnie, the problem is that people are choosing to use that information to hurt you and bully you, and you sure as fuck didn’t choose to be bullied. They’ll see that

Do you not trust us?

 

Jiminie:

It’s not that

I’m too much

People don’t like me when they find out things about me

 

Min suga:

…Minnie

Listen to me

No matter what, they will love you.

You’re our friend.

We’re assholes to each other sometimes, but we care

They don’t hate me for my shit

And trust me

As much as I like to pretend I have it together, you know that I don’t

I’m still depressed as fuck

Still anxious as fuck

Sometimes I lash out at them and people I care about and they still love me

And sometimes it takes all my motivation not to kill myself

But they still love me

They’ll accept whatever you tell them, jiminie

 

Jiminie:

…okay hyung

I’ll try and be more open

But its hard

I never had friends growing up

Aside from my brother

 

Min suga:

Really? But you’re a sweetheart

 

Jiminie:

I was also fat

 

Min suga:

What?

 

Jiminie:

I was a fat kid. I ate a lot and kids didn’t want to play because I couldn’t run as fast as them and I got winded easily and my clothes never fit right

I used to get teased for my cheeks all the time

So I never really had friends besides my brother

 

Min suga:

…but you’re so small now?

 

Jiminie:

I lost a lot of weight when I started dancing

Dancers can’t be fat, you know?

 

Min suga:

I’m sorry you were bullied as a kid Minnie

 

Jiminie:

It’s fine

I’m used to it

People are mean back home

And I’m shy so

Easy target lol

 

Min suga:

I used to get picked on for having girl legs

 

Jiminie:

Omg hyung

You are pretty slim…

 

Min suga:

I look great in a skirt

I don't have a full body pic but the girl legs thing became a running joke and this happened

 

Jiminie:

Kdsjfhkadjvhkjrh WHERE IS THAT FROM?!

 

Min suga:

Lol it was a skit for theater class we had to do once

I make a cute girl huh? Min Yoonji

 

Jiminie:

You’re an even cuter boy

Wait

Ignore that

 

Min suga:

😊 thank you jiminie~

 

Jiminie:

😊 you’re welcome

 

Min suga:

Hey

Jiminie:

Wut?

 

Tae:

That

I’m not blind

I saw that

Wtf Jungkook

 

Kook:

I seriously don’t know what’s happening?

 

Tae:

Wtf is this game of hot and cold?

 

Kook:

What do you mean?

 

Tae:

Don’t play stupid, maknae

You can’t do this

Jimin is our friend

You can’t just pick and choose when you like and don’t like him

 

Kook:

I never said I didn’t like him!

Tae:

Well you sure fucking act like you don’t when he isn’t around.

 

Kook:

I’m just worried.

 

Tae:

So am i. I’m worried about yoongi every fucking day, kook. I worry he’s not telling us everything and one day we’ll wake up to another phone call from his family telling us what happened

I’m so fucking worried he’s going to end up getting hurt anytime he makes new friends but you can’t do this.

Jimin is one of us.

He’s our friend.

Whatever is going on with him and yoongi isn’t our business so stop making it be yours.

 

Kook:

.

And what about when they fuck each other, taehyung-hyung.

What happens then?

What happens when yoongi fucks jimin, and jimin fucks off like it meant nothing (because it means nothing to him to sleep with people, and we know that for a fact.)

What happens when yoongi spirals and we get the hospital call because one of US hurt him.

 

Tae:

That wont happen.

Jimin isn’t like that.

 

Kook:

Everyone is like that.

You remember what happened when I fucked up.

 

Tae:

Jungkook.

 

Kook:

Admit that I have a point

 

Tae:

So that’s why you’re doing this? This overprotective stick?

Because you still feel guilty?

 

Kook:

Of course I feel guilty.

I fucked him up a lot, tae…

I messed up really bad

Hyung wouldn’t look me in the eye for months after that

He hated me, even if he says he didn’t. I know he did.

He didn’t want to see any of us

I don’t want him to go back to that

Relive any of it

 

Tae:

Kook

Listen

What happened is nothing like what’s happening with jimin and yoongi

 

Kook:

No?

You sure?

Just like me, jimin sleeps around a lot. Jimin has an idol crush thing on yoongi, just like I used to. Jimin is still sleeping around, despite admitting his feelings for yoongi, like I did.

The only thing that’s left is for yoongi to develop an interest, and then for jimin to tell him he doesn’t want him.

Then yoongi will spiral because that’s another friend who doesn’t want him.

Hyung doesn’t face rejection well

Especially when it’s us.

 

Tae:

IF jimin reject him

IF yoongi likes jimin

There’s a lot of fucking IFS here

 

Kook:

Ofc he likes jimin

It’s hard not to like jimin

He’s great

He’s just

 

Tae:

You better not fucking say what I think you’re about to say, Jeon Jungkook

Because that would be a load of hypocritical bullshit and I’m not afraid to call you out on it. You’re my bestfriend, but so is Jimin.

 

Kook:

I’m not

He likes sex. A lot

And that’s going to bite him in the ass, eventually

I’m not letting yoongi be dragged into it though

It wouldn’t be fair to him to be another impulse decision to someone who won’t take him serious

 

Tae:

That’s not your decision to make…

 

Kook:

I don’t see you trying too hard to stop me

You’re just as worried about him as I am

 

Tae:

…you can’t keep playing that game with jimin

You can’t be hot and cold, okay?

If you’re really going to play puppet master, then stop stringing jimin along. Either avoid him altogether or treat him like a friend all the time. You can’t be cold to him at random like this

 

Kook:

fine

I’ll try

Maknae-hyung:

Jeon Jungkook

Let’s talk~

 

Literally, a child:

…what’s up?

 

Maknae-hyung:

Tell me something

Are you still freezing jimin out?

 

Literally, a child:

I’m not freezing him out…

 

Maknae-hyung:

So that’s a yes.

Alright.

We’re going to have a chat.

And you’re going to listen to me or so help me you and Namjoon are both banned from my cooking.

 

Literally, a child:

…okay

I’m listening

 

Maknae-hyung:

Good~

You need to calm down.

This entire thing with keeping Jimin from Yoongi is enough.

 

Literally, a child:

Hyung

 

Maknae-hyung:

No. Listen to me.

I’m not Namjoon. I’m not going to sugarcoat shit. I’m not going to hold your hand and tell you that you’re trying your best.

I’m here to tell you to stop your shit.

 

Literally, a child:

I don’t understand…

 

Maknae-hyung:

Yes you do.

Don’t play stupid with me, maknae.

You’re smart. You’re in the top 10 students in the university. You know damn well what I’m telling you.

 

Literally, a child:

I really don’t.

 

Maknae-hyung:

Alright.

I’m a good hyung, so I’m going to spell this out for you:

You need to stop your shit with Jimin and Yoongi. It’s gone on long enough. I let it go on too long, actually.

You can’t keep freezing Jimin out whenever he does something to irritate you. You’re young, so I’ve been lenient, but enough is enough. You need to cut your shit.

Jimin is your friend, and you need to start acting like it. Yoongi is old enough to make his own decisions on who he wants in his life and how he wants them. If he wants Jimin in his life, it’s not your place to decide otherwise. And frankly, it’s hypocritical of you to act this way to Jimin when we both know that you were just like him before you dated Namjoon.

And did we ever treat you like we’ve been treating Jimin?

No.

We let you and namjoon figure your shit out like adults.

Yoongi is an adult.

Jimin is an adult.

If they choose to fuck around like you and Namjoon, it's their right as adults to do whatever the fuck they want

 

Literally, a child:

Hyung…

I’m sorry

You’re right but

 

Maknae-hyung:

No.

No, Jungkook, you’re not playing this game. There are no “buts” here. I understand you’re worried about Yoongi getting his heart broken, and I’ll admit that I was worried about it too, at first, but it’s not our place to get in the way of Yoongi making decisions.

And you know what? Let me tell you something.

Yoongi is 24 years old, and if he’s going to get his heart broken, it should be his decision. He’s old enough to know when who he wants, and he has made it clear that he wants Jimin.

Did you consider that, Jungkook?

 

Literally, a child:

…I didn’t…

 

Maknae-hyung:

I know you didn’t.

I know I’m being harsh right now, but if I’m not harsh with you, nobody will be.

Namjoon won’t because he’s in love with you, and Yoongi won’t because he sees you as a kid.

Yoongi wants Jimin, and there’s nothing you can do about it.

 

Literally, a child:

Jimin doesn’t want Yoongi, though…

 

Maknae-hyung:

We both know that’s not true. Taehyung told me about a conversation he had with Jimin, and from what he told me, there’s something real there.

We can’t interfere with them.

And even if Jimin didn’t like Yoongi back, it’s not our place to interfere.

They need to work things out.

I know you care about Yoongi, and that concern is probably why I even let it get this far in the first place, but you need to learn to let Yoongi make his own mistakes. You can’t start trying to police his decisions through your concern.

 

Literally, a child:

Okay.

Okay, hyung.

I’m sorry

I’m sorry, you’re right. I’m sorry.

I’m being an asshole, aren’t I?

I just didn’t want hyung to get hurt

 

Maknae-hyung:

Yes. You are. And a brat.

But you’re young.

You’re going to make mistakes. Normally I would let you make your own mistakes to learn, but ruining your friendships with Yoongi and Jimin would have been bad.

I know you care about them both, even if you have a shitty way of showing it right now to Jimin.

 

Literally, a child:

You think it would have ruined our friendship? ☹

 

Maknae-hyung:

Jungkookie…

Yeah. I do think that. Finding out someone you’re close to thinks so little of you tends to ruin friendships.

 

Literally, a child:

I don’t think little of anyone, though

 

Maknae-hyung:

It sure seemed like you did.

Apologize to Jimin.

You need to apologize for being an ass.

 

Literally, a child:

…Okay but

He didn’t even know

 

Maknae-hyung:

Jimin isn’t stupid

He knows you’re upset with him.

You’re not subtle when you’re upset, you petty bitch.

Apologize.

Or I’ll tell yoongi, too

How happy do you think he’ll be to know his bestfriend is being a dick on his behalf?

 

Literally, a child:

Nononono don’t tell yoongi

 

Maknae-hyung:

Apologize.

 

Literally, a child:

I will.

I’m sorry

I’m

don’t tell joonie please

 

maknae-hyung:

oh believe me.

I’m going to be having a nice, long chat with namjoon about psychoanalyzing our friends 😊

 

Literally, a child:

Why do I feel like I got off easy…?

 

Maknae-hyung:

Oh that’s because you did, Jungkookie 😊

You’re literally an infant

I can’t bully babies

Namjoon, on the other hand, is a grown ass man 😊

And I’m going to rip him a new one 😊

 

Literally, a child:

I—

I’m going to go apologize right now

 

Maknae-hyung:

That’s a wonderful idea, kookie~

You’re such a smart boy 😊

So I here I was

Sitting innocently down in the café

Minding my own business

Drinking my latte

And Jungkook texts me out of fucking nowhere right?

 

Fetus:

How out of nowhere could it have been

Yall are friends

Don’t you have weekly movie nights?

 

Chim:

Yeahhhh but shit’s been weird and like I only really talk to kook when tae is around

so it's weird and tense

AND IT GOT WEIRDER

NOW SHUT UP AND LET ME TELL MY STORY

 

Fetus:

My bad. Go on your royal highness

 

Chim:

I’m going to ignore that sarcasm

 

Fetus:

Aw

 

Chim:

ANYWAY

Jungkook texts me and he sounds all weird and panicky right

And I’m like “oh god this is it. what if he’s mad at me and he punches me in the face”

( i know you've never seen him before but trust me he's B U F F  and T A L L and i am strong but this brat could deck me and not break a sweat and that Frightens Me)

 

Fetus:

Was he?

Did he?

(omfg hyung you coward you could take him. aim for his kneecaps or his dick. bet he doesn't wear a protective cup there when he goes around punching short people)

 

Chim:

No???

I don’t think so?

Idk he wanted to meet me at the café so I was like

“ight”

And waited for him

And when he showed up he just kinda sat in front of me and kept fiddling with his phone

HE DIDN’T EVEN GET ANYTHING TO DRINK

I felt so weird

And I was about to ask him if he was mad at me right

Cuz he’s been off lately

BUT THEN THIS BRAT

SHOVES HIS PHONE IN MY FACE

AND DO YOU KNOW WHAT WAS ON IT?!

 

Fetus:

Porn

 

Chim:

nO

WORSE

 

Fetus:

Jfc how can it be worse than porn?

 

Chim:

BEING HIT IN THE NOSE BY A PHONE OPEN TO A PHOTO OF NAMJOON HALF NAKED IS WORSE

 

Fetus:

Omfg

Seriously

 

Chim:

I AM DELICATE AND IT HURT OKAY

AND I DIDN’T NEED TO SEE THAT

I DIDN’T WANNA SEE HIM THAT WAY I FEEL TAINTED

HIS PIXELATED NAKED CHEST TOUCHED MY NOSE

 

Fetus:

You can break me with your toes

and anyway you've seen worse

 

Chim:

Irrelevant

My toes aren’t my nose

Anyways he got all panicky right and then sat down all red and he kept apologizing to me for hurting my nose and like cleared his phone screen real quick

I was afraid to ask why he was staring at that picture so I didn’t (but maybe it makes him feel brave???? IDK)

I felt bad that he felt so bad

And yeah I told him it was okay and then he sat there for a good two hours

He kept trying to say something but I think he was embarrassed

Probably trying to explain wtf that picture was WHICH I DIDN’T NEED TO SEE OR EVEN KNOW THE CONTEXT OF

So it was really weird

 

Fetus:

Maybe he wanted to ask you out

 

Chim:

HE

HAS

A

BOYFRIEND

JIHYUN

NAMJOON IS THE BOYFRIEND

HOW DID YOU NOT PUT THE PIECES TOGETHER FROM THE FACT THAT HE HAD NAMJOON HALF NAKED ON HIS SCREEN??

 

Fetus:

WELL THAT WOULD’VE BEEN USEFULL INFORMATION BEFORE I WENT AND MADE MYSELF LOOK LIKE AN IDIOT

ALSO WHY ARE ALL YOUR FRIENDS GAY

 

Chim:

I think tae is straight?

Or like…bi?

 

Fetus:

That’s one

And you aren’t even sure

 

Chim:

Idk what to tell you ji

I’m out here living my best life

It just so happens to be a gay life

You went to apologize to Jimin.

And you ended up showing him your emotional support nude from your boyfriend.

And hit him on the nose

And didn’t apologize?

Please ignore what I look like I’m sorry it’s part of why I’m such a fucking wreck

 

Nochu:

Sleepy boi:

Minnie what happened?

 

Chim:

I’m going to explain it here because if I say it out loud I’ll cry and it hurts to cry

Stop glaring at my building Jungkook

 

Nochu:

No

 

Chim:

Someone from the university saw me and followed me out of my practice

I don’t know who they are

I’ve never seen them before

But they followed me and like tried to corner me but I’m not stupid so I tried to stay in the open and idk

Idk he didn’t like that so he just kept cat calling

And saying some gross things

So I stopped walking away and punched him

And then he punched me back but jokes on me he has muscle mass I don’t have hahaha so now everything hurts and it’s even worse because a couple people were around to hear him talk shit about me 😊

 

Taebi:

Jimin ☹ my soulmate

Wtf why didn’t you tell me you were being followed!!!

 

Chim:

I didn’t think it mattered

It’s not like it’s the first time

 

Nochu:

You are allowed to not be okay with us, Jimin. When we were all together, you were trying not to show how upset you were even though it was obvious you weren’t okay. And I understand, but you don’t have to be okay all the time. We love you, and that means all of you. The happy parts and the not so happy parts.

It’s okay not to be okay, Jimin

 

Chim:

Hyung

 

Hoebi:

He’s right, Chim

You can rely on us, too

I know we’ve relied on you before and you’ve never ignored us or made us feel bad about our feelings

Let us be there for you too, yeah? We care

 

Sleepy boi:

Jimin, we’re your friends through anything, regardless of how new you are to the group

Chapter Text

1:01AM SUNDAY 25 MARCH

[Private Chat: “favorite child”]

 

Chim:

I kissed yoongi

 

Fetus:                     

YOU WHAT

HYUNG

ANSWER MY CALLS

WHERE THE FUCK ARE YOU

TF YOU MEAN YOU KISSED THE LOVE OF YOUR LIFE

 

 

 

 

 

10:31PM SATURDAY 24 MARCH

 

 

 

 

Jimin likes to kiss people. He likes the plushness of lips against his, the warmth of another mouth working with his, the hot breath being breathed into his lungs. Jimin likes all of it. He isn’t a stranger to it, either. Jimin’s lips have experienced just about every type of kisser in the book: he’s kissed the first-kissers, with mouths so stiff he giggles into the kiss and coos at how cute their nervous inexperience is. The tongue-first-ask-questions-later kissers and the shy-barely-there kissers always lead to him leading the kiss to how he wants it. He’s been with plush lips, thin lips, dominating lips and heavy I’m-going-to-fuck-you lips.

Jimin is a kiss connoisseur; he likes his kisses.

So, it’s no surprise he had set off in search of the inevitable drunk game of spin the bottle. It’d been twenty minutes since he had arrived at the party, and Jimin was already bored enough to consider going home. College parties had been fun the first few times he had gone, but they were all the same to him now. It was hot, the people were stumbling over themselves drunk, and a few brave souls eventually ended up dancing in the living room while the rest of the party-goers either found someone to go home with or left stumbling back to their dorms.

The music was shitty, so Jimin didn’t feel like dancing, and his friends were still around so he couldn’t just leave. Jimin would feel guilty if he dipped out on the first party they had all gone to as a group.

So, he was left with one option: find the game of spin the bottle.

There were only two places where the game would take place—the location had to accommodate any stragglers, which left two options: the living room where players could sit on the floor, or the basement where the players could sit on the floor in relative silence. This time it was the latter (the living room was filled with drunk dancing, leaving no room for sitting), and Jimin had plopped down cheerfully in the circle during the middle of the most awkward kiss he had ever witnessed.

Clearly shy, both players were visibly out of their comfort zone. They pulled apart just as Jimin settled himself and scurried to their seats in the circle. Jimin leaned forward, pleasantly drunk, and heard the girl to his left say, “Oh Jimin’s here!”

He ignored the “of course he is” he heard from somewhere in the circle. He was here to have fun.

He hadn’t played more than two rounds before he’d impulse texted Yoongi, and when his hyung had stumbled into the basement not long after Jimin’s impatient text, Jimin pat the spot next to him.

Yoongi was flushed; his eyes were wide, his lips puckered into a pout as he glanced around the room. He spotted Jimin quickly, and the way he beamed, gums on full display, had something in Jimin’s gut clench in fondness. Fuck, Yoongi was so cute. He was so fucking cute, Jimin was going to combust.

“Hi, Jiminie.” Yoongi chirped as soon as he had plopped himself on the floor next to Jimin. He fumbled a little when he crossed his legs (trying to figure out how to place them to sit properly) and settled his hands into his lap, swaying a little and still smiling that stupidly bright smile at Jimin.

Jimin was internally combusting at the pleasure of having such a happy expression directed at him. Yoongi was happy to see Jimin. He would never get tired of it. Every time they went on a walk, no matter how distressed the other had been, Yoongi always smiled at Jimin like he was the best thing in the world. It was overwhelming, but Jimin didn’t want it to stop. As selfish as it was, Jimin never wanted it to stop.

“Hi, Min Suga-hyung.” Jimin said just as happily. He blamed the way he leaned into Yoongi’s side on the alcohol. Drunk Jimin was a handsy bitch.

It was Jimin’s turn to spin. He did so carelessly—it didn’t matter who he kissed. This was for fun.

And hey. Maybe it would land on Yoongi.

The neck of the empty soju bottle landed on a familiar girl. Jimin thinks she might be in his dance class, but he doesn’t know for sure. She makes her way to the center of the circle the players had created with a flushed face; Jimin follows soon after (he’s reluctant to pull away from the warmth of sitting next to Yoongi, but he’s playing a game).

The kiss is just a peck—she doesn’t do anything but let their lips brush against each other before she’s pulling away with a squeak and her small hands covering her face. He giggles and pulls her hands away from her face with his and says, “don’t be shy!” and when she flushes darker and gapes, he stumbles back to his seat with another giggle. Yoongi is watching him, still smiling so wide, so happy, and Jimin says, “I don’t even like girls, hyung.”

Yoongi says, “I know. That’s why I’m laughing.”

And Jimin is drunk enough that it’s hilarious. This whole situation is so, so funny to him, because here is Yoongi, the man Jimin is in love with, telling him that he knows Jimin doesn’t like girls. The socially awkward love of Jimin’s life is sitting with him in the middle of a game of spin the bottle, casually discussing Jimin’s sexuality like it’s nothing, and he has no idea that Jimin is feeling so so good about having Yoongi’s attention just on him, stating this fact.

The sky is blue. The planet is dying. Jimin doesn’t like girls.

Jimin is in love with Yoongi, who is very much not a girl, and very much might return Jimin’s feelings.

(That’s a problem for Sober Jimin, he decides firmly. Sober Jimin can deal with the feelings. Drunk Jimin is going to let his hyung keep smiling at him like he’s worth something.)

“I like boys.” Jimin says unnecessarily, and once again Yoongi says, “I know, Minnie.” But this time he’s laughing, and Jimin is laughing, too, and it’s Yoongi’s turn to spin the bottle.

He, too, lands on a girl Jimin dimly recognizes, and when Yoongi returns from the circle he’s wiping his lip and he’s saying, “I like girls too, but that was unpleasant.”

Jimin cackles. He throws his body onto Yoongi’s, laughing so hard Yoongi has to settle an arm around Jimin’s shoulder so Jimin doesn’t topple back in his mirth, and then they’re both laughing like idiots. Drunk idiots.

The game goes on. Jimin spins, he kisses, he settles back next to Yoongi and thinks he would rather stay right there. Yoongi spins, he kisses, and he comes back and rubs his fingers over Jimin’s knuckles splayed out on the carpet in the basement. He’d been right when he’d said he was drunk enough to not care about kissing strangers.

It’s Jimin’s turn again; he takes his hand up and uses it to spin the bottle. This will be his last round, he decides firmly. He’s going to make Yoongi dance to shitty music with him upstairs after this.

Jimin spins. He’s distracted. Yoongi is scrunching his nose, blinking, and Jimin is so endeared he isn’t paying attention to the bottle.

Yoongi suddenly starts snickering. Jimin blinks out of his thoughts, remembering the game and he turns to the bottle.

The soju bottle points to Yoongi, accusing. For the first time since Yoongi had come into the room, Jimin is aware of how thick the air is in the basement. He’s aware of the dull thump of the muffled base from the music upstairs—or is that his heart thudding hard in his chest?

Jimin’s mouth drops open in surprise, and he doesn’t have time to think about what is happening because there is a set of hands on his back pushing him, and he’s already outstretching his arms to catch himself—

--and Yoongi is steadying him.

“Jiminie.” He says, and there’s something in his voice that makes Jimin pause. He holds his breath. The moment feels precious, like if he even breathes he’ll break it. Yoongi’s eyes are sharp—he’s staring into Jimin’s eyes so intensely Jimin is afraid of what he’ll find, afraid that Yoongi won’t like what he sees.

“Hi.” Jimin says stupidly. He swallows past the lump in his throat.

And then Yoongi is leaning in, and he’s kissing Jimin.

The angle is terrible. Half of Jimin’s mouth isn’t even touching Yoongi, because their angle was so bad that the kiss is offset, but he doesn’t care. Jimin doesn’t care; half of his lips touching Yoongi’s lips is heaven, and he decides that he’s lived every experience he could have ever needed and that he can die happily now.

Yoongi adjusts so that his entire mouth is on Jimin’s, his lips completely touching Jimin, and Jimin is gone.

He’s heard all the stories of kisses being special. He’s heard people talk about sparks flying, and earths shattering, and heavens opening up, and he’s always scoffed at them. Kissing has always been nice, sure, but never anything life changing. At best, kissing was a pleasant sensation that he wanted to continue because the stimulation felt good. Jimin thinks he’s starting to understand the expressions, though. The knot in his stomach had unraveled the minute Yoongi had changed the angle, and Jimin could accurately say he was on cloud nine. Or maybe he’d ascended to cloud ten, or even eleven. He even felt a little bit of a jolt in his lips—was that the spark? The beginning of the cracks in the earth?

He can’t dwell on it—can’t analyze the possible-spark because Yoongi’s lips are moving, and oh.

Oh.

This is a kiss-kiss.

Well. Jimin isn’t going to object. This is the part of kissing that he’s familiar with—the insistence, the deepening into more than a casual peck. He releases the tension in his body and leans into Yoongi entirely. On autopilot, his hands, which had previously been outstretched to catch himself from falling are now grasping the edge of Yoongi’s jacket and pulling him closer. Jimin tilts his head, adjusting, and it’s even better. Now, Yoongi has access to more than just the front of lips, and damn if his hyung doesn’t take advantage of that.

Before he’s even fully aware of it, Jimin finds himself locked in what is quickly becoming a heated make-out session with Yoongi. His lip has found itself the subject of Yoongi’s tongue’s attention and he is absolutely-not complaining, no sir. In fact, Jimin is so happy by this change of events he’s propping himself up on his knees and bringing himself even closer to Yoongi, moving his hands so that he’s curling his fingers on the back of his hyung’s neck and taking more. It feels so good, so natural and right and electric, that Jimin is experiencing a new kind of intoxication from Yoongi’s lips.

Yoongi drops his mouth open just slightly, and he tastes like alcohol and something else Jimin can’t identify but he thinks it’s mint. He chases the taste, tries to identify it by deepening the kiss even more, taking more more more from Yoongi until he can’t breathe and he has to pull away, panting.

It’s only when he’s opening his eyes again and catching his breath that he realizes he’s all but sat himself in Yoongi’s lap. He hadn’t even noticed he’d moved aside from his initial shuffle for comfort, but this position was something he could enjoy. He hears the catcalls from around the circle; Jimin’s cheeks heat up in response. He combs his hair back his with fingers, embarrassed.

“Get some!” Someone says.

“That was hot.” Someone else jeers.

Jimin is slowly growing more mortified. He covers his face with his hands to avoid looking at Yoongi. He doesn’t want to see his hyung’s disgusted face when he realizes what he did, and who he did it with. He slides away from Yoongi, fully ready to run away and never show his face again.

Before he even get’s the change to vaguely plan his escape from this anxiety-inducing situation, he’s being pulled to his feet by a large, familiar hand. It’s wrapped entirely around his forearm, somehow, which floors Jimin because as slight as he is, he’s not that small. Jimin stumbles, drops his hands from his face, and is forced to look at Yoongi. Yoongi is staring at him intensely, expression unreadable. Jimin licks his lips nervously; he doesn’t miss the way Yoongi’s eyes zero in on the action.

“Get it!”

Yoongi takes it to heart. He’s up on his feet unfairly steady considering how much he’d been stumbling not long ago, and he’s pulling Jimin out of the basement. He’s ridiculously aware of the catcalls that follow his retreat, and the whistles and jeers. He hears his name tossed around but before he can hear it well, he’s back in the loud music from upstairs and Yoongi is maneuvering them both through the thick line of drunk college students.

Jimin follows blindly, the hand Yoongi isn’t holding as he leads coming up to touch his lips like a lovestruck teen in a coming of age movie.

This is what he’s been reduced to, he internally laments. Park Jimin has pined for Yoongi so hard he’s been reduced to holding his lips like a lead in a drama. His lips feel like they’re tingling, and he can’t tell if that’s a sign of accidentally biting them, or the kiss.

Jimin thinks he’s more drunk than he thought because he doesn’t realize what Yoongi is leading him to until he’s being pulled sharply into a brightly lit bathroom.

He blinks at the sudden lighting—it had been dark in the living area, with flashing lights from the sound system the only light source. It’s almost painful to force his eyes to adjust to the sudden fluorescence.

“What—” Jimin starts, and stops promptly because once again, Yoongi is kissing him.

(If this is how he’s going to be shut up every time he talks, Jimin is going to have to start talking all the time.)

It’s different this time. There’s no hesitance to his actions, no awkward angles. Jimin and Yoongi are the same height, so there’s no height adjustments that need to be made. Yoongi just kisses Jimin, hot and urgent and demanding. Yoongi is trying to take just as much as Jimin is trying to give. He’s pressing himself right up against Jimin, pushing the younger back until he feels the edge of something hard and solid pressing against his lower back. The edge of something he can’t see because all he can see is Yoongi Yoongi Yoongi. His senses are all Yoongi: the smell of sweat and the cologne he uses when he goes out, the softness of his lips and the soft lines of his body pressing onto him, the taste of his tongue, the sound of his harsh breathing as he pulls back to breath and kisses back just as quickly. Yoongi’s hands rest on Jimin’s hips, pull his body close with a firm jerk.

Jimin feels wanted. He feels desired. He feels good. He feels like if Yoongi doesn’t stop kissing him like that, Drunk Jimin is going to get down on his fucking knees and put his mouth to another use for Yoongi until his hyung is spilling filthy sounds from his mouth. Jimin wonders what Yoongi would sound like when he comes. He wonders if it’s a sound as addicting as Yoongi’s slurred drawl when he’s relaxed and talking about what he loves.

Time is hard to keep track of. Has it been minutes? Hours? Jimin doesn’t know. He doesn’t care. He just cares about the rising heat in the cramped bathroom, and the pain-pleasure of being pressed so tight to the maybe-counter. It’s too hot.

Jimin shrugs off the jacket he brought with difficulty, tossing it to the ground carelessly and returning his hands to Yoongi’s body. He’s getting bolder, trailing his touches underneath the older’s shirt, and Yoongi shudders.

He shudders, stops his kissing momentarily, and Jimin jolts when Yoongi’s hands slip back to his ass.

“Fuck.” Yoongi rasps, low, wrecked, so impossibly hot it’s not fair that he sounds so good.

Fuck. Jimin agrees.

He does an experimental roll of his hips up against Yoongi with a whine, and Yoongi just moans and squeezes his ass. Jimin does it again, and again, and each time Yoongi gets a little more aggressive with his kisses, his hands kneading his ass over and over and Jimin is letting out harsh little gasps.

“So fucking hot.” Yoongi murmurs, punctuating each word with a kiss and a light squeeze.

Sober Jimin better fucking remember this, he thinks furiously. If he doesn’t remember that fucking sound for the next ten years, Jimin is going to request a memory implant. The things he was feeling—

Fuck.

Yoongi pulls away abruptly, panting. Jimin opens his eyes, breathing just as heavily. They lock eyes, swallow, and all is still.

Distantly, Drunk Jimin hopes Sober Yoongi doesn’t regret this.

Yoongi’s signature gummy smile immediately quells that fear. The anxiety is shut down and replaced with worth now that he’s wanted so earnestly.

“We just made out.” Yoongi says casually.

Jimin loses it. He’s giggling so hard he’s squeaking, dropping his head onto Yoongi’s shoulder, which is also shaking with laughter. “We did.”

Yoongi is still laughing when he puts his arms around Jimin, who, for his part, has set his hands back on the confirmed-counter and sat himself on top of it. He stretches his legs out in front of him and links his ankles behind Yoongi to pull him closer—Yoongi’s hands settle on his thighs in between Jimin’s legs. (They’re so big they almost wrap around his entire leg. Jimin swallows at the images that come to his head at that. Maybe he has a hand kink, after all.)

“You’re hot.” Yoongi tells him, pecking his lips.

Jimin giggles. He doesn’t know if it’s the alcohol making the air feel brighter than before, or if he’s just dizzy from not breathing enough, but everything feels right and fuzzy—like he’s living in a cloud. Maybe it’s the fondness he swears he sees in Yoongi’s eyes and hears in Yoongi’s tone that stops any anxieties in its tracks, but he frankly doesn’t care.

That’s a problem for Sober Jimin. Sober Jimin can confess to Yoongi when they’re both sober. Drunk Jimin just giggles through his swollen lips, the taste of Yoongi’s tongue in his mouth, and lets himself play with Yoongi’s hair as Yoongi’s thumbs rub lightly at his thighs.

They’re going to have to talk, obviously.

Sober Jimin can deal with that.

Drunk Jimin is on cloud fucking nine. He can’t be bothered—Yoongi pulls him back in for a kiss, softer and gentler than before and life seems like it’s going to look up for Sober Jimin.

Like feels pretty fucking good with each whisper of Jimin’s name from Yoongi’s lips.

Cryptic bitch:

Lmao

There’s not much to tell jihyun

Just

He made this fucking sound when I got frisky and I’m a hoe so I kinda wanted to just get down for him

But I didn’t cuz that’d probably be too far

And we were both drunk and drunk kissing is one thing and drunk blowjobs are another thing

Consent is sexy and idk if he would consent sober so

No dunk bj ☹

 

Fetus:

I know way too much about your sex life man

But good for you for remembering consent even trashed!

You were really drunk right?

 

Cryptic bitch:

Oh definitely

I drank away my problems jihyun and let me tell you

Fetus:

What’s up with Jungkook

Is he still on his man pms?

 

Cryptic bitch:

…I guess

I hate your wording btw

But yeah idk he’s acting weird. I’m just letting him be

On another note

I think yoongi might like me too?

 

Fetus:

He’s probably going through puberty

He’s a baby

BITCH WHAT

 Yoongles:

I kissed Park Jimin

 

Jin:

Min Yoongi

Please say sike

 

Yoongles:

I’m not kidding

I kissed him

At the party

Why are you so pressed?

 

Jin:

That’s where you two went

You brats

You left me alone with an emotional Jungkook and panicking namjoon

 

Yoongles:

Jungkook was emotional?

Why?

 

Jin:

Nothing important. He just had too much to drink

Now tell me wtf you meant by “you kissed jimin”

Was it a peck

Was it a dare

 

Yoongles:

Kind of

It was spin the bottle

But then we made out in the bathroom

Jin-hyung

His fucking MOUTH

HIS A S S

 

Jin:

Nonononono

I don’t wanna hear this about my child

 

Yoongles:

Hyung please ☹

 

Jin:

No

 

Yoongles:

 

Jin:

…FINE

Tell me about your kiss with Jimin, yoongi

 

Yoongles:

HIS FUCKING MOUTH HYUNG

W O W

BOY KNOWS HOW TO KISSSSSS

Like wow I knew he was good at what he did from what I heard right but

Wow

Wowowowowow

We were making out for so long I lost track of time and my head was all fuzzy but hoo boy that mouth

I know what that mouth do and I am a fan

I wonder what else that mouth do *side smirk*

 

Jin:

Are you done?

 

Yoongles:

Not even close

He makes these sounds when he’s being kissed that like

Oomf

Omf I want to hear them more

He’s so cute he kept pulling away and blinking at me like he didn’t believe what was happening and I was fucking messy drunk alright you can’t blame me so I just kept kissing him so he wouldn’t overthink shit

And I may have been groping that ass

Because I’m human

And FUCK he felt fucking great when he got all desperate to get off

wow kissing jimin felt good

Felt very good

I wanna do that a lot

Maybe more

 

Jin:

You’re sexualizing our friends again, yoongi

 

Yoongles:

He’s hot, hyung

I’m only human

 

Jin:

Do you even like jimin?

 

Yoongles:

Yes

wait

Like…romantically?

 

Jin:

Yes, yoongi

Romantically

Do you like him or do you just want to sleep with him?

 

Yoongles:

I don’t know

I like jimin, hyung

I want to spend time with him even if we don’t fuck but I mean

I wouldn’t mind fwb

 

Jin:

But do you want to date him?

 

Yoongles:

I don’t know?

I’ve never really thought about it

And wow I sound like an asshole saying that fuck

I’ve honestly never thought about it though. We have a good dynamic as friends, and I’m definitely attracted to him

I don’t know though. I mean…there’s times where I think I like him and I can see us trying something and like

Being more than friends

And it makes me happy cuz we would work together really well???

But I don’t know if it’s romantic or if I’m lonely and just like

Wanting someone to stop being lonely

How do I know if its romantic…?

 

Jin:

Yoongi.

I’m going to say this as nicely as I can:

You need to figure out if you have feelings for the boy before you suggest any kind of fwb shit when you talk to him.

I know Jimin likes sex and all, but he has feelings too.

 

Yoongles:

…you think he likes me

 

Jin:

I think there’s a possibility that he does

He wouldn’t have made out with you if he didn’t feel some kind of attraction

 

Yoongles:

Maybe it’s physical?

 

Jin:

You are a very lovable person

It could be romantic attraction

 

Yoongles:

…I’ll think about it hyung

But I don’t know

I really don’t know

I haven’t dated in forever

I don’t even remember what a crush feels like

 

Jin:

That’s fine

But you should be careful with jimin, okay

Just because it’s only physical for you doesn’t mean it’ll be like that for him

 

Yoongles:

…okay

I don’t think he’d like me though

We’re not close enough for him to like me

I mean we’re better but he’s still holding back a lot and I get it but

He has so many other options he can take, too

I really don’t think he would but yeah

You’re right

I need to think

I gtg

I’m going on a walk

 

Jin:

With Jimin again?

 

Yoongles:

No

Alone

I need to think about this whole thing

I told him we would talk when we’re sober

But I don’t even know what to say anymore

I don’t know what he wants from me

I don’t know if i can give him what he wants

Idk idk idk

I need to think about everything

My head hurts

 

Jin:

Okay yoongi

Take your time

I’m here for you if you need to talk, okay? <3

Okay I’m probably being really invasive right now, and feel free to tell me to fuck off, but are you okay? I haven’t seen you all week and neither have the hyungs. I’m worried ☹ You don’t have to talk about anything but I know you don’t like to be alone when you’re upset so I’m on my way to bring you coffee. I’m here for you <3

 

Yoonie:

Don’t come over.

 

Jiminie:

???

Are you not home?

 

Yoonie:

No. I just want to be alone right now Jimin. I don’t want to fucking pretend to be okay for you

Can you just leave me alone? I’m ready to snap and I’m not nice when I snap, okay?

I’m fucking mean and I’ll make you cry and I don’t want to deal with you crying right now on top of my shit.

I can’t do this shit today, I’m sorry.

 

Jiminie:

Hyung, you don’t have to pretend to be okay! You can be upset. I just want to be there for you. You hate being alone

I can handle a little meanness, okay? I promise

 

Yoonie:

I don’t need your fucking pity, Jimin.

I’ll be fine. I don’t want you here

 

Jiminie:

I don’t pity you

Please don’t push me away

You hate being alone

 

Yoonie:

Don’t act like you know me.

You literally push every fucking person away except for me

You can’t say shit about this

I’m fucking tired, okay jimin

I’m stressed out and I can’t deal with you too right now

 

Jiminie:

I’m trying to be more open

You know that

 

Yoonie:

Point is you push people away more than I do

Quit butting into my business if you aren’t willing to open up either

 

Jiminie:

I’m sorry.

You’re right, sorry. I crossed the line. I didn’t mean to

I’ll leave you alone

 

Yoonie:

Can you stop agreeing with everything I say?

You can’t just agree with everything people say so they like you

I’m not going to like you just because you agree with me on every single thing

That’s not how you get people to stick around

It’s really fucking annoying actually being friends with a people pleaser

He’s in his dorm, I think

I think he’s having a bad day

Can you check on him when you get home hobi-hyung? He doesn’t seem okay

At least get him something to eat?

Yeah chim of course

I’m on my way back now

Sleepy boi:

Sure

You said that already

And then you come here and spread my business

What the fuck.

 

Chim:

Hyung, you always tell us when you’re upset…

 

Sleepy boi:

Maybe this time I didn’t want people to know?

Maybe I didn’t want to be fucking coddled and treated like a goddamn time bomb?

Did you think about that?

No. you didn’t.

You never fucking think about the consequences of your actions.

 

Dad joke:

Yoongi, what the fuck?

What’s going on?

 

Nochu:

Woah what’s happening?

Hyung?

 

Taebi:

That’s uncalled for yoongi what the fuck

 

Sleepy boi:

No it’s totally fucking called for.

He doesn’t get to speak for me

Just because we fucked around doesn’t mean we’re shit, right jimin?

It never fucking means anything for you, so this isn’t any different.

I’m not any fucking different for you

 

Taebi:

Woah woah what’s going on? What do you mean?

Jimin?

What does he mean?

What is yoongi implying?

 

Chim:

Nothing

It’s nothing taetae I promise

 

Sleepy boi:

Yeah

It’s nothing

It’s always nothing to you.

You can’t take anything fucking serious when it comes to yourself

 

Chim:

Hyung, please stop

I know you’re lashing out but you’re really being mean right now

 

Sleepy boi:

How about you stop?

You’re constantly going on about how you feel lonely and how people talk about you and I’ve tried being supportive Jimin but jesus.

You don’t open up to people. You don’t say shit about anything and then expect things to get better by not DOING ANYTHING and I’m fucking tired of it. The only significant things I know about you you’ve told me when you’re drunk or so emotionally compromised you might as well have drank yourself unconscious. I have my own shit going on and I don’t need your fucking pity kiss on top of it

You can’t expect people not to talk shit about you when you’re going around doing the exact things they’re saying and fueling the flames

 

Nochu:

Does anyone understand what’s happening?

 

Dad joke:

Jungkook shut the fuck up

Yoongi, what are you saying?

 

Sleepy boi:

I’m saying I’m not going to be another one of Jimin’s pity fucks.

 

Nochu:

I-

 

Chim:

It wasn’t like that

Hyung, please just talk to me. I promise it wasn’t like that

I think we miscommunicated somewhere I’m sorry I promise it wasn’t like that hyung you have to believe me

Can we talk?

 

Sleepy boi:

It was exactly like that.

I’m not going to like you because you slept with me, Jimin.

I like people who can fucking commit to something

And who trust me

But you can’t even commit to your own personality and opinions. Do you even know who you are when you aren’t trying to please someone?

 

Chim:

Please stop.

Can we just talk? I really think we need to talk

 

Sleepy boi:

No.

YOU don’t talk.

You never fucking talk.

Your “talk” is finding someone to distract you for the night so you don’t have to think. You have a fucking problem, Jimin, even if you won’t admit it. At least I fucking know I’m fucked up.

At least I don’t have to sleep with anyone to feel wanted. But hey, it means nothing to you so go get the attention you want and leave me the fuck out of it.

 

Chim:

Fuck you.

Taehyungie

Can you talk to me please

I tried asking the hyungs what I should do with yoongi

And they all told me to apologize which I’m going to do because I know I upset yoongi

But

But he upset me too taehyungie!

You saw what he said in the groupchat

And I know I’m a lot of things but I don’t think I deserve that

No. I know I don’t deserve that.

Yoongi’s my friend, and just because he’s my friend doesn’t mean he can say thing like that

I’m going to apologize for whatever I did to hurt him but I’m really hurt by what he said and I don’t think the hyungs know that

Taetae ☹

I thought things were going really well with me and yoongi

Taetae what am I supposed to do?

 

Taehyungie:

Min…

Please don’t be upset but I think the hyungs are right

You need to apologize first for what you did

 

Mochimin:

But

But I didn’t actually do anything

I didn’t.

He was pushing me away and I tried asking what was wrong and he lashed out and

Taetae I wasn’t trying to hurt him

I was just trying to talk to him about something important

But he was being really spiteful and I’m really hurt by that

I was just trying to help

He always lets me help

 

Taehyungie:

I’m sorry minie ☹ The stuff he said was mean but

I mean

You do shut us out…

I love you I really do and everyone does what they want with their body Jimin

I would never shame you for that

But Yoongi isn’t like you…

He doesn’t do ‘no strings attached’

He’s my friend too and I want to support both of you but he’s not someone you can just hook up with. He’s sensitive, and the kiss may have meant nothing to you but it probably meant everything to him. He deserves better than to be just a hook up…

 

Mochimin:

You think I was using yoongi?

 

Taehyungie:

No! No I don’t think that at all. I just think that maybe you should have waited before kissing him…you know, to be sure you want to be committed to him. Maybe waited until you were both sober so you know what you’re doing

I know you like him Minnie but yoongi doesn’t know that

And you haven’t really done anything to prove to him that you like him and you’re under no obligation to obviously but if you look at it from his perspective it’s kind of…yeah…

You kind of have a reputation…and I know it’s exaggerated but…Idk Minnie I’m on your side too but things don’t look good objectively

And okay yeah hyung shouldn’t have been so mean about it but I mean

He lashes out when he’s hurt and he’s probably going to feel really bad about it as soon as he’s okay

Just give him time, okay? <3 talk to him when he’s calmed down and apologize

 

Mochimin:

Tae

 

Taehyungie:

I promise it’ll work out <3

You guys are friends and hyung is just upset

He’ll realize you didn’t mean anything bad and he’ll apologize for being so hurtful

Now I got to go

I’m buying some icecream for hyung

I’ll tell him you didn’t mean to hurt him, okay?

Chin up <3

 

Mochimin:

…Don’t bother.

Just make sure he’s okay, I guess.

 

Taehyungie:

[“Serious Business”]

Nochu:

How’s yoongi hyung?

He hasn’t answered my texts all week

I’m worried about him

 

Hoebi:

He’s fine

I think

He’s been in his room all week

I’ve only seen him come out for food and to use the bathroom

 

Dad joke:

Have you tried talking to him to see what happened?

 

Hoebi:

Yeah

He just snaps at me

I asked him once if everything was okay with him and Jimin and he told me to fuck off

I think he was really hurt

 

Taebi:

But what happened?

 

Hoebi:

Didn’t jimin tell you?

 

Taebi:

No

He’s been like

Distant with me too…

 

Nochu:

He wouldn’t tell you probably

Probably ashamed of what he did

 

Dad joke:

We don’t even know what happened, Jungkook

Stop making assumptions

 

Nochu:

Yoongi-hyung clearly fucking said in the chat that jimin did something

We just don’t know what

Yoongi wouldn’t just snap like that for no reason at jimin

There had to have been something

 

Joonie:

Kook

We don’t know anything that happened between them

Only jimin and yoongi know

 

Nochu:

I know that jimin hurt my hyung

And that’s not okay

And you know what

I fucking told yall that this would happen

I TOLD YOU that Jimin would end up hurting yoongi and we’d be the ones helping him out

 

Dad joke:

We don’t know what happened.

Friends fight all the time

I know I want to punt your fucking ass into the moon at least three times a day

 

Nochu:

It’s different

Yoongi-hyung doesn’t like confrontations. This was a huge fucking confrontation. Something happened

 

Taebi:

Neither does chim

And I agree with namjoon-hyung

We don’t know anything that happened

We’d have to ask them what happened

 

Hoebi:

Yeahhhhh that’s gonna be a no from yoongi

He’s not up to talking at all

I just tried bringing him noodles and he slammed the door in my face

Which spilled hot noodles all over myself

If I didn’t love him so much I would go in there and punch him to get his shit together

 

Taebi:

Well I’ll ask chim?

 

Nochu:

He won’t tell you

 

Taebi:

I’ll ask anyways.

Yoongi won’t tell us, obviously

 

Hoebi:

I’d steer clear of the apartment for a while, you guys

He’s like

Really upset

I can hear things being thrown in there

 

Joonie:

Oh

Oh he’s mad mad

Um

Fuck I wish we could do something

 

Hoebi:

I’ve tried

And jin tried too, yesterday

 

Dad joke:

He fucking threw a glass of water at me when I went into the room and told me my ego needs to calm down before I get more annoying than endearing

 

Taebi:

Hyung

I’m so sorry

Your ego is perfect okay there’s nothing wrong with being self confident

 

Dad joke:

I’m not upset about it

I know Yoongi is just pissed because his own self esteem isn’t as secure

But he’s not being nice right now

 

Hoebi:

Yeah we kinda saw how pissy he was with chim

Is he okay btw?

 

Nochu:

He’s fine

He’s out partying

Probably doesn’t even care

 

Taebi:

he seemed upset when he texted me but he hasn’t said anything about it since then

I think he’s okay though cuz yeah he’s been out having fun 😅

I’ll check in with him soon

 

Joonie:

Think you could find out what happened?

 

Taebi:

I can try!!!

Soulmates have no secrets!!

He even told me about his crush on yoongi, remember?

 

Nochu:

Yeahhhhh

Sucks he had to mess that up ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

 

Dad joke:

Okay look

I get that you’re anxious because of the situation but you need to tone down the attitude

We don’t know what the fuck happened

And until we know we’re going to fucking support yoongi until he’s better and go from there

Calm tf down

 

Nochu:

I know what went down

And honestly you do too

You’re just denying it cuz you don’t want to believe that jimin could do something shitty

But he’s human too

And maybe this time he hurt hyung by accident

But the result is still the same and as much as I care about jimin I care about yoongi more

And yoongi is hurtin

And he won’t fucking let me help him

So excuse me for being a little fucking upset and snippy about the fact that someone I trust hurt my fucking family.

Hyung.

 

Joonie:

Jungkook.

 

Nochu:

¯\_(ツ)_/¯ I said what I said

And I fucking meant it

Jimin better have a really good fucking reason for this entire situation because yoongi hasn’t been this bad in a while and I’m not happy until my hyung is

 

Taebi:

 

Hoebi:

Update

Yoongi just snapped that he can’t think with my music so

I’m dipping out before he gets even more pissy with his comments

I tried yall but he’s getting mean mean the longer I try to talk to him

He’s bad right now

 

Dad joke:

Come to my apartment

Joon should be back soon with takeout

 

Hoebi:

Thanks hyung

But yeah

I think yoongi is really not okay right now

 

Taebi:

This is a mess ☹

It’s easy to stop caring. Falling back into old habits is like surrounding himself in a well-fitted skin—one that reeks of smoke and sweat. It’s a skin made from iron indifference—what people say about his new recklessness recoils off the surface like it doesn’t matter. Grabby hands find well molded grooves in his hips he ignores and brushes off. Jimin’s new careless skin doesn’t fear being alone, being used, being hurt. It feels nothing.

Jimin tries to feel nothing about the things he’s doing. Tries not to let the loneliness penetrate his skin past the hands taking taking taking from him. He tries to forget how hard it is to breath when he lays alone in his bed at night, clutching his dead phone in his hands. He doesn’t plug it in unless he absolutely has too.

(Jihyun must be freaking out by now—Jimin hasn’t texted his brother since he had decided to cut off all his contacts. He can’t find it in him to care.)

Jimin tries for an apathetic approach when he remembers Yoongi’s words to him—the hatred in them. He doesn’t care. A lot of people hate him and everything he stands for. He doesn’t care.

Jimin doesn’t care.

He comes back to his dorm at 3am most nights covered in sweat and bruises that Jaegyu scrunches his nose at in the morning. The constant vibrating from Jaegyu’s phone those mornings a reminder that Jimin is alone in the world right now and that Jaegyu—as much of an asshole as he is—still has his friends. By now, he has a routine down to stop the anxiety creeping and choking him.

In the morning, Jimin wakes up with anxious tremors and a tightness in his chest he forces away with a cigarette. When his lungs filter oxygen through the smoke he’s gulping down, and he doesn’t feel like the wrong word will make the pressure snap and the dam break, he changes into the first things his fingers touch and ghosts through his classes. Tuedays and Thursdays, he skips class. It isn’t because of Yoongi, he tells himself vehemently. Jimin isn’t scared to face him. He isn’t. He just doesn’t feel like going to class and being forced to speak and participate.

It has nothing to do with Yoongi.

Because, really, who cares if Yoongi hates him? So what if Yoongi agreed with the rumors of Jimin being easy—a slut.

Jimin doesn’t fucking need Yoongi. He’s doing just fine on his own. He doesn’t fucking need anyone. He’s always been fine on his own—it’s no different now.

At night, Jimin’s routine includes midnight strolls through campus.  Sunday night after the Groupchat Incident, Jimin attends a frat party and takes the midnight walk of shame back to his dorm with more shame than he’s ever felt.

Tonight, the routine is interrupted when none other than Kim Muyeol quite literally crashes into Jimin in the campus square—neither men paying attention to their surroundings. Jimin has seen his previous hook-up around campus, of course, and then once at the McDonald’s with Taehyung. He tries not to give Muyeol any attention when he sees him though, determined not to encourage the other into thinking Jimin wants anything to do with him. Muyeol liked sex on the rougher side and as much as Jimin likes pain, even he has a limit to what he’s comfortable with. Muyeol liked to think Jimin liked being pushed past his limits—Jimin liked to think he had made it crystal fucking clear that he didn’t like his boundaries pushed (admittedly, Jimin didn’t have that many boundaries to begin with, but that was another reason he was entirely miffed that Muyeol didn’t get the hint and fuck off.)

He’s not fast enough in averting his eyes tonight. Jimin may hate himself, but it takes a whole new level of self-hatred to even consider going back to Muyeol.

“Jimin!” chirps Muyeol, skidding to a stop directly in his path. “I thought it was you!”

“Hi.” Jimin says tightly, shoving his hands into his pockets. They’re shaking again—he wants this conversation to be over so he can leave and smoke something to calm him the fuck down. He hates anxiety attacks. Hates that he doesn’t know how to cope with them like he’s supposed to.

“What are you doing out so late? Alone? Are you waiting for someone?” Muyeol winks. “Or is it another walk of shame?”

Oh, he’s definitely ashamed, and he sure is walking, Jimin thinks sardonically to himself. What he says is, “I’m just enjoying the night air.”

It’s a lie, and they both know it. The night air is freezing, cutting into his flushed cheek harshly. Midnight in early April is nothing pleasant—the thin hoodie that he’s wearing does nothing to counter the cold. He hadn’t warn anything warmer though. Warmth was for people who deserved it.

“I see.” Muyeol nods. He shuffles his feet, then sits on the bench right next to where Jimin stands. He pats the wooden seat invitationally.

Jimin makes a face. He knows that Muyeol can see the irritation lining his features—he also knows how good Muyeol is at ignoring what he doesn’t want to see. Always the willfully oblivious asshole, Jimin mocks. Apparently, it’s the type he attracts.

“I’m not going to sleep with you again.” Jimin says. A part of his heart hurts—isn’t that all he’s going to be good for? “Leave me alone.” In his head, Yoongi’s voice is echoing the words.

Muyeol has the decency to look sheepish. “I wasn’t going to ask that.”

“You always ask that. I’m saying no, again. Leave me alone.”

“You don’t look okay, Jimin.”

Jimin considers this. Muyeol isn’t wrong; Jimin looks like shit. He hasn’t brushed his hair since the Incident, and he’s wearing a dirty hoodie he grabbed at random from the floor of the frat party he fled from on Sunday—there’s stains on it now that he’s convinced are either semen or vomit. From the vague recollections of that night, Jimin concludes that it’s probably both. It’s Wednesday now, so the stains are long past dry and crusty and disgusting. He doesn’t even know if his jeans are clean, or when the last time he did his skin care was, or when he last had something people consider real food. He’s sure that with the way he’s hunched in on himself he must be quite a sight, too—If the sun were even out, Jimin knows that the darkness of his dark circles would be a cause for concern, as well as the resigned expression he lugged around.

He hasn’t covered anything with makeup like he usually does—he doesn’t care. Can’t be bothered to pretend to have his shit together when nobody will believe it anyways.

“I’m not okay.” Jimin says simply. “Go away Muyeol. I can’t deal with you right now.”

Yoongi’s voice is rattling around again; Jimin aches at the words. He aches, and his breathing is stuck in his throat, and he pushes himself away from the bench and Muyeol, because if he stays there he’s going to think and he doesn’t want to. He’s trying so, so hard not to think about anything, especially about how fucked up he had to be to make the nicest person in his friend group hate him and believe him capable of using someone for sex. Jimin can’t think about it. He won’t.

He doesn’t care. Jimin doesn’t care if Yoongi hates him. He doesn’t care that his friends hate him. Jimin doesn’t care about anything. He never does.

Jimin needs a distraction.

Just like he always does.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

There’s an electric current of tension and anger running just under his skin, and Yoongi absolutely fucking hates it. He hates the tightness he feels under his skin, the tightness in his ribs and fingers which itch to be doing something, anything, to feel better. He hates that no matter what he tries to burn off energy, it isn’t enough. He hates that he needs to create, but everything he makes is useless. He htes that instead of being sad, he is angry.

Yoongi is angry. Yoongi is spiteful. Yoongi is smart. He’s smart, and spiteful, and angry and he can read people as easy as an open book and is quick to pick up on insecurities. He knows things about people they sometimes don’t consciously know about themselves, knows which buttons to press and which threads he needs to pull to make someone hurt. Yoongi knows that his words hold weight. He hates knowing these things, hates that he’s smart, and spiteful, and angry, because it’s the worst possible combination to give someone going through a depressive spiral. He shouldn’t have this much power when all he wants to do is hurt.

He’s not stupid—he knows he crossed several lines that he shouldn’t have even gone near to the last time he had talked to his friends. The things he says when he’s spiraling aren’t okay. They aren’t forgivable. It isn’t okay to take out your emotions on your friends. It’s not okay to throw their insecurities back in their face. No matter how understanding his friends are about when he self-destructs, Yoongi still made a huge mistake.

Yoongi fucked up. It wasn’t okay to slut shame Jimin.

And it makes him angry. It infuriates Yoongi that he was supposed to be the last person to ever hurt Jimin—he’s been telling Jimin over and over that what he does or doesn’t do shouldn’t matter. Then he’d gone ahead and opened his destructive mouth and crushed what little acceptance he had probably instilled in Jimin. Yoongi hates himself. Yoongi is mad.

He’s mad because he’s depressed. Yoongi is mad that when he’s depressed he can’t control the part of his brain that tells him to hurt people so he’s not the only one in pain, and that he can’t fucking control himself or his actions. He’s so beyond livid that he can’t just be sad when he’s spiraling—no, Yoongi is the kind of explosive depression that wants to drag everyone down with him.

He’s always been like this. When his brain chemistry had decided to skip the serotonin, it had apparently  amped up the aggression in compensation. Instead of feeling sad and crying, or feeling empty and dissociating, Yoongi felt agitated and restless. He was a charged wire without the safety protective layering, ready to burn whoever touched him. His senses were always heightened tenfold so that even the smallest breeze against his arm felt like a knife grating against his skin. The smallest sound was amped up millions of decibels along his eardrum—Yoongi swears he can feel the blood moving under his skin. When he spirals, it always feels like he’s been going through his life with a muffle over his senses, and the muffle has suddenly been ripped from him. He wants to distract himself, but the only thing that stops the sensations is overpowering one of them—so he hurts things. He used to sneak out and punch an alley near his home when he was upset, and the pain from his knuckles being busted open was enough to calm him down. He’d gotten infected one too many times and had to stop, and his anger had only gotten worse and harder to manage after that.

And there was so much to be angry about!

He’s mad for hurting Jimin. Mad that Jimin didn’t shut up and leave him the fuck alone when he’s clearly warned him that he was an asshole. (He’s mad that he had to open his big mouth and say what he said so cruelly—even if Jimin had a problem, it wasn’t Yoongi’s place to say anything so bluntly.) He’s mad for blaming Jimin for his own asshole actions. He’s mad that his friends don’t ever call him out. He’s mad that they coddle him. He’s mad that he doesn’t appreciate his friends and how forgiving they are, because logically Yoongi knows that had it been anyone else, Yoongi would be alone from one too many hurtful outbursts. He's mad that Jin didn't stop him from taking that stupid walk, because Yoongi had spent the entire time overthinking. Jin should've kept quiet, Yoongi seethes, because him opening his mouth had only made Yoongi think of every single way he could fuck up with Park Jimin. He's mad that he could count twenty different ways everything in his life could go wrong, but couldn't come up with one single scenerio of if things went right. He'd thought himself down a depressive spiral, and then he'd lashed out in his anger, and fucked up again.

Yoongi is mad. Every thought he has is tainted with the anger. His jaw is clenched so tight he’s starting to feel soreness all along it, but he can’t be bothered to release the tension because all he wants to do right now is either scream at the top of his lungs, set something on fire (preferably, himself), or hit something so hard his knuckles are bleeding and the tension can seep out that way.

He’s trying so fucking hard to figure out how to apologize, and it’s hard when all his friends keep treating him like he’s some kind of ticking time bomb.

Which, okay, fair. He is. He’s explosive. Jimin got caught in the crossfire.

(His friends have been victims of Yoongi’s explosive episodes before, of course, but this feels different. He’s never gone so far with them—never been so transparently cruel to them. Sure, he snapped at them. Insulted them and regret it when he came back to himself, but that was mean. That was mean, and this situation was cruel. This was Yoongi kicking a wounded animal that couldn’t defend itself, and then kicking it again just for shits and giggles and Yoongi is so, so ashamed of himself and afraid of himself. He can’t look into the mirror—he’d already shattered it, because he didn’t recognize the wild look in his eyes. He didn’t recognize the cruel son of a bitch in the mirror, so he’d broken it.)

Jimin shouldn’t have been a casualty of Yoongi’s inability to control his anger.

It isn’t okay.

Yoongi fucked up. He fucked up very badly, and he needs to come up with one hell of an apology to even begin to fix his mess, but he can’t even think through the red-tinted haze of anger right now. Even if he believed in what he said. He had fucked up the delivery.

So, he resolves to calm down before he makes this any worse.

Headphones on and fingers twitching to hit something, Yoongi sits on his bed and cries frustrated tears. He allows everything out in the safety of his self-imposed isolation where he can’t hurt anyone else. To apologize, he can’t be upset. He can’t be on the edge of lashing out when he sees Jimin, who he knows will give as good as he gets. Jimin has his own anger issues, Yoongi has seen firsthand. He’s seen how quick his normally sweet friend is to snap and lash out when he’s cornered and hurt—Jimin may not be as spiteful as Yoongi, but there was an anger in him, too.

Yoongi needs to calm the fuck down before he makes this damage worse. He’s turned his phone off by now, ashamed of his outburst in the group chat. He doesn’t answer when Hoseok tries to get him to talk through the locked bedroom door. Hoseok has never understood an uncontrollable anger—Hoseok has always had a tangible reason for his anger, and therefore, could find a solution. He means well, but he doesn’t know how to handle someone who is in no state to accept help. Yoongi sits on his bed, feels miserable, but resolves to apologize as soon as he’s okay.

Soon, he will be okay.

(Yoongi ignores the sinking feeling in his stomach that his relationship with Jimin won’t be okay after this.)

Just now duh

I was on my way back to my dorm

And I spied with my little eyes you and some guy chatting on a bench~

Who was it?? 👁️👄👁️

 

Taebi:

It’s too late for this shit

 

Chim:

Just some guy

It’s not a big deal

You suuuure?

Not a big deal like that’s your latest hook up or not a big deal like you really didn’t get some ass?

It’s not a big deal as in butt out of my business Jungkook

Jimin:

Jungkook, stop

 

Jungkookie:

Stop what?

 

Jimin:

What you’re trying to do in the groupchat.

I don’t want you to ‘hype up my hoeing’

I don’t like talking about them. You know that

It’s uncomfortable

Please stop

 

Jungkookie:

It’s not uncomfortable when you’re sleeping with them though?

 

Jimin:

Jungkook.

 

Jungkookie:

What? It’s true.

And honestly Jimin-hyung

You shouldn’t be ashamed of sleeping around

Lots of people would love to have such an active sex life

 

Jimin:

That’s enough, Jungkook. I get that you’re upset with me but I’m still your hyung. You need to act like it.

 

Jungkookie:

What, like you act with Yoongi-hyung?

Using him and throwing a fit when he doesn’t want to be another one of your flings?

 

Jimin:

When did I ever throw a fit?

You don’t know what happened.

 

Jungkookie:

I do know what happened though.

I know better than anyone. I know you think you like Yoongi and I know that you don’t actually like him. You just like that he treats you like an actual human and not just another hole to fuck, but you don’t actually like him. I know you probably feel pretty fucking mad that your plan to sleep with him and feel wanted didn’t fucking work, and I know that you’re probably going to do what you’ve always done and fill whatever void you have with more notches under your belt

Am I fucking wrong, Jimin-hyung?

I don’t fucking think I am.

 

Jimin:

You don’t know shit about me or what happened between me and Yoongi. You’re seeing what you want to see.

 

Jungkookie:

Whatever you say.

Just leave him alone

He doesn’t need you stringing him along.

He deserves better than someone who won’t ever commit to one person.

Sorry, but he’s not going to like you. He’s out of your league, and you know it

 

Jimin:

You know what?

I don’t fucking need this.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Are you sure you want to block “Jungkookie”?

 

Yes          No

He thinks I just want to fuck him 😂 

I’m so fucking in love with him and he thinks I want to fuck him because that’s al I do

Yoongi thinks i want to fuck him because I’m easy and I need attention

He told me to get my attention from somewhere else

And Jungkook says yoongi is too good for me and he’s right

Hes so fucking right I’m nothing

I am nothing and yoongi is everything

He’s smart and talented and he has a fucking future and at this point I probably have an std or something

Because I can’t keep my fucking legs closed and

And yoongi is so much better

He wouldn’t ever like me

I’m nothing

 

Fetus:

You are not nothing. You are everything. You are so so good and who fucking care what you do with your body. You’re an amazing dancer and an amazing singer and you’re going to make it big. You’re going to go so fucking far. You’re fucking hot too, hyung, okay. People want to sleep with you because you and I have really good genes and we’re beautiful people

Stop thinking that

You’re so much more than nothing please don’t say that

I hate hearing you say that because its NOT TRUE.

 

Cryptic bitch:

I haven’t even slept around

12:12AM MONDAY 9 APRIL

 

 

 

Fetus:

You didn’t do anything wrong, okay, hyung? They’re all just fucking selfish fucking assholes. You aren’t in the wrong. They’re just choosing not to see that they’re being self righteous bitches.

 

Cryptic bitch:

They’re good people. I have to have done something wrong. I just want to know what I did so I can fix it and make them stop hating me.

I always fuck up; I want to fix it.

I want to know what I did wrong

I thought Yoongi and I were okay ☹ We were going to talk

And we didn’t

And I don’t know what I did wrong but I thought we were okay but we weren’t

It hurts

 

Fetus:

Hyung.

I don’t know how to make you understand that people treating you like this isn’t your fault. You don’t deserve this treatment.

They’re supposed to be your friends. Friends don’t act like this.

Yoongi shouldn’t have treated you like that. The screenshots you sent me were horrible, and fucked up, and what he said was inexcusable, okay?

if he needed space he should have found a better way to ask for it

 

Cryptic bitch:

It’s not like I would know what real friends are like…

All I have is you

 

Fetus:

I don’t treat you like shit though.

I respect you, and listen to you, and don’t jump to conclusions at the first chance I get.

Your “friends” aren’t your friends.

You need to get some space from them.

At least until you realize that you deserve good things.

 

Cryptic bitch:

…jihyun I can’t just not have friends

I can’t be fucking alone I’m stupid

 

Fetus:

I’m your bestfriend now.

Just make it through the year and I’ll be there in your school, and you won’t be alone.

I’ve already been accepted, okay?

Fuck those guys. I’ll be your only friend if it means people stop hurting you.

Just.

Make it through the year until I get there.

Please, hyung.

For my sake, just cut them out so they don’t hurt you anymore.

It’s not okay.

 

Cryptic bitch:

Okay

Okay I’m sorry

For being such a mess

 

Fetus:

I don’t want apologies for being upset

I want your fake friends to get their heads out of their fucking assholes and see that they’re being biased and judgemental bitches

But that’s just me 😊

 

Cryptic bitch:

😂 😂 😂 

You’re so full of anger

 

Fetus:

It’s justified okay

You look like a baby chick

I feel protective cuz you’re so small and squishy

 

Cryptic bitch:

I’m older than you

 

Fetus:

I know

But that doesn’t mean I can’t still protect you from bullies

 

Cryptic bitch:

<3

I need to apologize for being a bitch.

I was having a really bad week and I kind of overthought myself into a really bad place mentally, but that’s no excuse for lashing out. I know you guys understand my moods, but I still need to apologize. I said a lot of stuff that was uncalled for, and I’m really sorry, and I know sorry doesn’t change how shitty I was, I need to say it. I was really shitty this time around, and I’m really fucking sorry. And uh yeah I think I’m gonna schedule a meeting with the campus councilor…I was really shitty, and I felt really shitty for putting you guys through it again

Thank you guys for being there for me even though I was being unreasonable and an asshole <3

Especially you Hobi. I know I was a nightmare to live with.

…I’m sorry for throwing things at you all the time I’m an asshole

You can punch me?

Min Suga:

Hi Jiminie

You’re not answering the group chat

I owe you an apology

I shouldn’t have been so cruel to you last week. It was completely uncalled for, and I know you were just trying to be a good friend to me. I literally have no excuse about my behavior—I was just an asshole, and you didn’t deserve that. I’m really sorry. I’m so so sorry, Minnie. I know that an apology won’t make the things I said to you better, or change how hurtful they were, but I promise I won’t ever be that cruel to you again. I know I said that I lash out, but it’s not okay to just do that and I realized that. I’m sorry. Can I make it up to you? Or at least meet up to apologize in person?

Chapter Text

9:09AM THURSDAY 19 APRIL

 

 

 

 

Yoongi added Hobi, Brat, Jin, Joon, V to a new chat!

Yoongi has named the chat “Explain Yourselves”

 

[“Explain Yourselves”]

 

Yoongi:

I found Jimin

What the fuck happened in the week I was fucked up.

 

Brat, V, and 3 others are typing…

 

 

 

 

Maintaining his distance from his friends hadn’t been a problem; Jihyun would be happy to know that Jimin had had no problems muting all of the notifications from the chats between his friends. He’d been quite liberal with the button, actually, but Jimin had always been good at isolating himself from situations he didn’t want to be in. He’d even gone a step further and logged out of all of his social media, too, just so he wouldn’t have to see how happy they all were without him. Jimin didn’t think he wanted to see more proof that his friends had tolerated him at best, hated him at worst.

Jihyun would not be happy, however, to know that Jimin might have spiraled too far down the road of “Self-Care Induced Isolation” directly into “Isolated Self-Destruction Avenue”. It was a cycle, and cycles are hard to break once you’ve spiraled into them.

Oh, has Jimin spiraled.

He’d tried not to let himself get this far. Jimin went through all of the coping mechanisms his old counselors had told him for his anxiety; he’d counted to 543 before giving up when he felt like he was losing himself to a panic attack, took walks in broad daylight, told himself positive affirmations he pretended to believe. Jimin told himself he wasn’t worthless and that he wasn’t unlovable, or replaceable, and tried not to acknowledge that he’d forgotten how long it had been since he had felt like he was a person worth something.

When his coping strategies kept failing, and it had become too much, Jimin had given up. Nothing had been making him feel better—despite how often Jihyun texted him, Jimin still felt achingly lonely. He recited positive phrases to himself that he heard reversed as whispers when he walked, his name alone enough to induce snickers and pointed barbs from his classmates. He tried to power through—Honestly, Jimin tried so hard he was sure he deserved some kind of award. At the very least, Jimin expected the situation to get better or at least not to get worse.

Of course, because Jimin has terrible luck, it got worse.

It went from bad to worse in dance Friday evening, when a freshman dancer Jimin didn’t even know by name had burst out in snide laughter at the sound of his name coming from Hoseok’s scolding mouth.

Jimin had messed up a step, and Hoseok had snapped, and the freshman had laughed and had the nerve to say, “Wow so Park Jimin really isn’t good at anything outside of the bedroom.”

The room had gone silent, Jimin’s mouth dropped open in shock, because sure the rumors had been bad, and he had heard what was said, but nobody had ever so blatantly remarked on it to his face before. Jimin didn’t know how to react—he didn’t know whether to defend himself, or cry, or teach the freshman to respect. The only thing Jimin was sure of was that, for the first time in a long time, he felt so ashamed to even exist.

Helplessly, he had turned to Hoseok, hoping his hyung would know what to do. Hoseok was the TA, after all. Even if he wasn’t Jimin’s friend right now (and Jimin knew they weren’t friends—Hoseok’s sweeping gaze and disregard for Jimin’s presence as opposed to his hugs and heart-shaped smiles from before spoke volumes of Jimin’s position within the group), Hoseok had to keep the classroom in order. The syllabus had specifically stated that bullying and harassment is a serious offense.

Their eyes had met briefly, Jimin’s wet with tears he didn’t want to shed, and Hoseok’s wide with shock. They had hardened almost immediately, and he’d stepped past Jimin to the freshman.

“Let’s refrain from locker room talk in class.” He’d said sternly, then jerked his head to the exit. “You’re done for the day. Come back when you can filter your words.”

The freshman had left, and Jimin had watched, speechless, as Hoseok had resumed his position in front of the class without another glance at Jimin, and demanded another repetition of the sequence.

Jimin didn’t participate that afternoon. He promptly walked to where he had set down his bag against the wall and pulled his shoes onto his feet.

“Where are you going?” Hoseok asked, from the front of the class. “You don’t have this sequence down—the showcase isn’t going to wait for you to get it right if you’re skipping class.”

Jimin wordlessly laced his shoes and left the studio.

It was only when he was out of the building that he burst into tears, and they didn’t stop until he was shaking so bad it hurt to breath.

It got worse, he told himself. It got much, much worse.

He had honest to God tried to be someone that his little brother could be proud of, but it was all of a sudden too much, and that evening he had found the first party he had heard of and drank himself stupid, and spiraled from there. For over a week, he had been hopping between dorm rooms of his hook ups, and parties, and even slept in the couches in the halls of the classroom buildings. Through his haze, he knows his week was filled with hangovers he cured with more alcohol. You can’t be hungover if you’re always drunk, right?

Maybe drinking helped him forget that sometimes, it hurt too much to breath, and he wondered if maybe he would like to stop.

Maybe Jimin liked that it hurt. Maybe he let everything hurt.

Maybe Jimin deserved it. Maybe he shouldn’t have ever had sex since all it did was cause him problems. Maybe the hands that keep touching him have all started to blend together in a haze of self-hatred, and he’s long since stopped feeling the relief of being touched and started to associate touch with something dirty. Maybe being touched repulses him now, but if he’s not a good lay anymore, then what is he even good for?

The evidence is conclusive: Park Jimin had never been good for anything except being an easy fuck. So what if he doesn’t like it anymore? This is all he’s ever going to get. Nobody loves broken, used goods.

And that’s fine. Jimin doesn’t fucking need anyone—he’s been just fine on his own. Just because he feels his throat close up with shame as he spews lies to his brother over facetime, telling him that he’s doing better and has been keeping himself busy in the library, and in the studio. At least the latter was correct; Jimin didn’t tell Jihyun why he’d been spending so much time in the studio, though.

Hoseok had been right. Jimin had been bringing the team down—He made too many mistakes in practice. He needed to be perfect so Hoseok wouldn’t have to yell at him to fix his moves anymore. He didn’t want to be yelled at anymore. Jimin preferred the disinterested gaze Hoseok gave him in class. (Like Jimin was part of the décor. Like he was nothing.)

But it’s fine. Everything is fine.

Everything is okay, he tells himself when he walks into his Vocal Arts classroom Thursday morning. He shares it with Yoongi, so Jimin is on high alert in case the elder comes in through the doors. He disregards his usual seat in the front to sit in the back—too tired and hungover to participate. He pulls his hood up and drops his head into his arms.

His entire body aches. The bruises on his arms throb where his head rests on them, and if he focuses, he can feel the throb in his legs. He can’t really do anything but focus on them, either. It’s either focus on the bruises marring his skin, or focus on the throbbing in his brain from the hangover.

It’s fine. He’s fine. He’s okay.

He’s fucking fine, and he needs a smoke.

The clock in front of the classroom says there are still ten minutes left before the professor even enters the classroom to set up, so he knows he’ll make it. Jimin can run out, take a quick smoke to calm his anxiety, and he can come back and pretend to care about this stupid class. Hell, taking the break would hide his apathy even better—he’d have time to work himself up to feeling human for an hour. He’s already smoked on his way to the building this morning, but his hands are still trembling and if he doesn’t stop them, his chest will soon be joining them.

He braces himself to stand up only to startle back into his seat when the chair besides him scrapes back away from the desk. Jimin scoots away from the person now occupying the chair, hyperaware of the stench of smoke from his clothes. Socially Acceptable is not the term Jimin would use to describe himself right now, and in fact he would go as far as to say he’s a Fucking Wreck, and he doesn’t want to drag anyone else down with him.

“Hi.” Yoongi’s voice says. Jimin had slept a couple of hours last night—he’s not sleep deprived enough to be hallucinating, so this is real. Real-Yoongi is actually sitting next to Jimin, talking to him civilly. Jimin closes his eyes. Yoongi is real.

Jimin clears his throat. “Hello.” God, he sounds horrible.

Through his peripheral vision, Jimin catches sight of Yoongi’s fingers nervously fidgeting in his lap—his thumb is red and bitten around the nail. Jimin turns to the wall, his own hands now nearly vibrating with how anxious he feels.

This isn’t happening—this wasn’t part of the plan. Jimin had planned exactly how he was going to make it through the day, starting with attending this class for attendance points and then practicing the routines for the showcase for a couple of hours until he got another invitation to drink. Yoongi being here ruins everything; he can’t be here, not right now, not when Jimin was too much of a mess to handle anything outside of his plan.

Jimin needs to get out of here. He hates ruining a plan, but anything is better than facing whatever Yoongi is going to say to him.

“I’m sorry.” Yoongi blurts. “I’m so, so sorry Jiminie.” Jimin cringes—he doesn’t deserve a nickname. “I’m really, really fucking sorry. I know I fucked up really badly. I say things that aren’t okay and aren’t true, and I shouldn’t have said them. You’re not…” He hesitates; Jimin fills in the words for him mentally. Easy. A slut. Annoying. Worthless. “…Not any of the things I said. I was having a shitty day, and I know that’s not an excuse. I’m really, really sorry, Jiminie.”

Jimin thinks it would be easier to forget about what had happened if it was just the things Yoongi had said that hurt. The truth was, what Yoongi had said was nothing Jimin hadn’t heard before. It wasn’t anything Jimin didn’t already know. He knows he has issues. Jimin knows he shouldn’t use sex as a way to cope with loneliness, but it’s his life. No, what had really hurt was the implications of what he had said, and the way nobody had even tried to look through Jimin’s eyes.

“It’s okay.” Jimin says softly. “Don’t worry about it.”

The back seat is suddenly seeming like a terrible idea. The exit is so far away, and students are already flooding inside of the lecture hall and filling the remaining seats. Luckily, the professor hasn’t arrived yet, so theoretically Jimin could still make his escape. The empty row down the middle of the classroom is mostly void of students. He might get some strange looks of the twenty or so students already situated in the room, but what was another rumor?

How much worse could the associations with his name get?

A hand drops to his shoulder. “Jimin?”

Jimin reacts before he realizes it. By the time he’s processed what he’s done, he’s already shoved Yoongi’s hand off of him, snapping “Don’t touch me!” and pressing himself against the wall he’s sat himself next to. Jimin is angled as far away from Yoongi as he can get without turning his back to him, hands up protectively.

Yoongi’s mouth is dropped open in a little ‘o’, his eyes just as wide. Jimin drinks his features in—it’s been two weeks since he’s last seen Yoongi up close. Still pale in complexion, Yoongi does have a small flush across his cheeks from the cold air outside. His hair is fussed, sticking up and mused from the wind. It’s longer now, too, nearly covering Yoongi’s eyes. He’s wearing a black hoodie, just like Jimin, but unlike Jimin Yoongi is wearing a yellow flannel underneath it peeking up from the collar of his hoodie.

Yoongi looks perfect. Healthy. Clean.

Too clean to be touching someone like Jimin.

Jimin settles back into his seat, rips his eyes away. “Sorry.” He mutters. “You startled me.”

Yoongi inhales deeply. “Are you okay?”

The question is so stupid Jimin wants to laugh. Is he okay? No. He’s the furthest thing from okay that he could possibly be. Yoongi isn’t stupid—he can clearly see that Jimin looks as okay as he feels. Unless he doesn’t care, which, now that Jimin thinks about it, is probably the case. Yoongi is probably asking out of politeness. “I’m fine. How are you, hyung? You look better.”

He looks like he hasn’t been kept awake every single night by the things he had said to Jimin. It’s a bitter thought that Jimin shakes away. He doesn’t want to be like this. Being this angry is why his friends don’t want him anymore.

Yoongi is pouting when Jimin looks at him again. It settles into a frown. “I’m okay. Um. Listen, I’m really sorry. I was ridiculously out of line with what I said. I was spiteful, and it wasn’t okay. You didn’t deserve to be my punching back, and I promise I’m never going to lash out at you like that again. I um…” He rubs the back of his neck. “I have an appointment with the campus counselor. I need help with my anger again…and I realize that. I’m really sorry that it took hurting you for me to take the step, Jimin. Will you let me make it up to you?”

Jimin squints his eyes at Yoongi. He’s searching for a tell—a wiggle of his nose, a twitch of his eyes, anything to prove that what he’s hearing is the lie that it sounds like. Yoongi had always had a very expressive face; Jimin had learned to read it very well over all the time they had spent together.

It hurts that he has to use his knowledge like this.

Yoongi is a really good liar. He’s excellent, actually, because there’s nothing but well-rehearsed remorse across his face. Even his eyes look genuinely sorry. He looks so genuine, Jimin is almost convinced that Yoongi is actually being sincere, but Jimin isn’t stupid.

“No, that’s okay.” Jimin finally says, frustrated. “It’s okay. Don’t even worry about it.”

“Jimin, it’s not okay—”

“It’s fine.” He insists, shutting down the matter. “There’s nothing to make up for. I should have backed off and give you your space like you wanted. Consider me educated for next time. I’m fine. I’m glad you’re feeling better.”

He crosses his arms, a clear “Stop Talking” signal, but Yoongi can’t fucking read, apparently, because he goes on.

Leaning forward in his seat towards Jimin, eyebrows furrowed, Yoongi says, “No, it’s not okay. It was fucked up.” He’s invading Jimin’s space—Jimin breaths just a little bit harder, feeling trapped. “You didn’t do anything wrong, Minnie. I was the asshole who was out of line, and it’s not fucking okay. Stop pretending it was. There’s never an excuse for being such a dick to your friends.” Yoongi swallows, his voice wet. “I’m really sorry, and I can only promise that it won’t happen again. Never again. I’m not going to hurt you like that again, and if you let me, I’m going to make it up to you. I’m sorry.”

Jimin can’t breath. He wants to believe Yoongi is being sincere, but he can’t. As much as he wishes the words he’s being told are the truth, he remembers the accusations perfectly clear. He remembers Yoongi’s harsh, honest words—it was Jimin’s fault. The others had reminded him, too. Yoongi will never like him, and maybe he wants to apologize now, maybe it real and Yoongi really feels bad, but how long will it be until Yoongi decides he doesn’t want Jimin anymore?

How long until Jimin makes another mistake?

How long until Yoongi decides he’s bored of Jimin and just throws him away for someone who is clean and worth something?

All of this in mind, Jimin just nods, and remains wordless and distanced from Yoongi as the professor walks in and begins lecture.

It’s tense. Yoongi is full of nervous energy and Jimin is no better. They’re both fidgeting in their seats,Yoongi typing away furiously on his phone, not paying attention at all and Jimin can say that he didn’t hear a single word that came out of his professors mouth the entire lecture, either. It’s only when he notices his classmates packing up and leaving does he spring up out of his seat. He’s slinging his backpack over his shoulder and is ready to get the fuck out of this room just as Yoongi stands up and blocks his escape.

For a moment, Jimin contemplates the consequences of leaping over the desk to freedom. He seriously considers just parkouring his way out of this entire situation.

“Do you have somewhere you need to be right now?” Yoongi asks timidly. He’s smiling a little awkwardly, a crook of his lips more than the actual smile Jimin has grown fond of over time. “We um…We still need to have that conversation. From last time.”

Jimin shakes his head immediately. “I—I have to rehearse. I gotta go or someone will take me spot. Bye.”

He drops his head, steels his nerves, and pushes past Yoongi. Jimin speed walks out of the lecture hall, and then he adjusts his grip on his backpack and sprints out of the building, heart pounding, and aching.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

[“Explain Yourselves”]

 

V:

I don’t really know much??

He was kind of upset by what happened but he hasn’t mentioned it since then

 

Hobi:

I think the end of the term stress is getting to him

He’s always tired and it’s starting to effect his dance

 

Yoongi:

He’s not okay.

He’s so past not okay he wouldn’t look me in the eyes.

He wouldn’t let me touch him.

Jimin always lets me hug him but he didn’t

What happened?

 

Joon:

...I don’t know hyung…

 

Brat:

He’s probably embarrassed that he was called out for his shit

 

Jin:

…Jungkook

 

Yoongi:

Jeon Jungkook

What the fuck does that mean

 

Brat:

You know

That thing he had with you

His “crush” on you

 

V:

Uh kook

I don’t think now is the time to have an attitude…

 

Yoongi:

You’re fucking right it isn’t the time to have an attitude.

Explain yourself, Jungkook.

 

Brat:

…I…He doesn’t actually like you, hyung…he just thought he did and I called him out on it

After you yelled at him he was still going around trying to ask what he did wrong like he didn’t know and I called him out on his lie. He didn’t like that I guess, but I was right. He was sleeping around even after he hurt you

 

Jin:

That is a very messed up explanation but…he’s not wrong. I saw Jimin the other day walking around campus with some dark marks. He was obviously doing the walk of shame, and he looked mortified when he saw me. I think he didn’t want us to know that he was still hooking up

I didn’t want to think he was so shady, but he is

I’m kind of disappointed that I thought he’d be better than that

 

Yoongi:

Seokjin shut the fuck up I’ll handle your bullshit in one second

Jungkook.

What do you mean by calling him out?

Tell me EXACTLY what you said to him.

 

Brat:

Um

 

Yoongi:

Oh, are you getting nervous to show me? Are you finally realizing how fucked this situation is?

 

Brat:

It just…

 

Joon:

Kook, just tell him

I think there’s been a misunderstanding

 

Yoongi:

I sure fucking hope it’s just a misunderstanding

Jungkook.

 

Brat:

okay

<screenshot-attached>

 

Jin:

…oh

Oh Jungkook

 

V:

 

Yoongi:

I’m going to say this in the nicest way possible because I’m honestly too shocked to process that my sweet fucking dongsaeng is this much of a bully

Jeon Jungkook: what the actual fuck is wrong with you?

What made you think that sending that was in ANY way, shape, or form okay?

Who the fuck taught you to be such a fucking DICK to your friends?

 

V:

Um hyung

Not to be That Guy

But you weren’t exactly fucking nice to Jimin either.

You were a dick to him too

 

Yoongi:

I know.

But do you see me acting self righteous about it?

And for that matter, where the fuck were you this week Kim Taehyung?

What the fuck happened to being there for your ‘soulmate’?

 

V:

I was there for him!

I told him everything would work out.

 

Yoongi:

Show me the screenshot.

 

V:

<screenshot-attached>

 

Yoongi:

YOU BLAMED HIM FOR MY BITCH ATTITUDE

YOU

TAEHYUNG

YOU ACCUSED JIMIN OF USING ME DESPITE IMPLYING THAT YOU KNEW ABOUT HIS CRUSH ON ME

What the actual fuck!

Anyone else have some fucking confessions to make?

 

Joon:

…I did the same…

I told him I didn’t have time for him and to apologize to you

 

Jin:

I did something similar

 

Hoebi:

I’ve uh

Been kind of scapegoating him in practice…

I wasn’t even trying to not be biased and I think it’s been pushing him to practice longer..

 

Yoongi:

Alright. Okay

Have any of you spoken to him since then?

 

V:

…No…

 

Jin:

No

 

Joon:

No

 

Hoebi:

In practice kind of…

He doesn’t really respond unless it’s a direct question

 

Brat:

No

 

Yoongi:

Oh so you’ve been freezing Jimin out

Jimin, our friend

Jimin, who is there for us when we’re being bitchy

Park Jimin, the kid who had such a hard time trusting us and opening up we barely got him to before we all fucked up. Same kid who was afraid of us finding out his issues because he was scared we’d hate him

Great. That’s just great.

We fucked over our own friend.

Love that for us.

 

Jin:

I understand that you’re upset, but you can’t just lash out again

 

Yoongi:

Kim Seokjin shut the fuck up.

You’re supposed to be our hyung

The oldest.

You’re not supposed to play along with our shit

You’re supposed to see when one of us is being a dick and calling us out on it

You didn’t seem to have a problem calling us out when it came to jimin.

 

Jin:

Yoongi.

 

Yoongi:

Nuh

No I’m

No you know what I was going to be calm because I love you guys but I’m pissed

Like fuck. I fucked up, okay? I fucked up really bad with Jimin but I’ve already apologized and maybe it was too late, but I at least owned up to my mistake. I was a fucking asshole to Jimin. And I realize that.

But that was my mistake! I was the one who snapped

You guys didn’t even know what happened but you all went and did this shit

But you all don’t seem to realize how shitty you’re being.

Fuck.

Would you treat me like this?

Would you fucking freeze me out if one of you snapped at me without context?

 

Jin:

…No

 

Yoongi:

THEN WHY

DID YOU DO THAT

TO JIMIN

LIKE I GET HE DOESN’T KNOW US FROM DIAPERS BUT FUCK

HE’S BEEN OUR FRIEND FOR A YEAR

 

Brat:

I thought he was just using you

I thought he wasn’t serious and he was going to hurt you…he has a history, hyung, even you know that

 

Yoongi:

SO

DO

YOU

JUNGKOOK YOU LITERALLY PANIC KISSED ME WHEN YOU WERE 17 AND IGNORED ME FOR MONTHS BECAUSE YOU COULDN’T HANDLE HAVING FEELINGS FOR A BOY

AND THE PROCEEDED TO SLEEP AROUND WITH EVERY OTHER BOY ON CAMPUS AS WELL AS THE GIRLS

WHY AREN’T YOU

OF ALL PEOPLE

DEFENDING JIMIN?!

 

Brat:

I don’t know

I’m sorry

 

Yoongi:

NUH UH NO

YOU’RE ONLY SORRY CUZ I’M UPSET

WHY THE FUCK WOULD YOU GUYS CUT JIMIN OFF

I WAS HAVING A MENTAL BREAKDOWN AND LASHED OUT

JIMIN DIDN’T EVEN DO ANYTHING WRONG HE WAS TRYING HIS FUCKING BEST TO BE MY FRIEND AND I BITCHED AT HIM AND SAID SHIT I SHOULDN’T HAVE SAID THAT ISN’T EVEN TRUE ANYWAYS

AND YALL JUMPED DOWN HIS THROAT

THAT’S SO FUCKED UP DO YOU EVEN SEE THAT?

YOU ALL HAVE ME ON SOME FUCKED UP PEDESTAL AND ACT LIKE I CAN DO NO WRONG OR I’M SOME KIND OF SAINT BUT JESUS

NEWSFLASH IDIOTS:

I AM HUMAN

I MAKE MISTAKES AND BEING AN ASSHOLE TO JIMIN WAS A HUGE ONE

BUT SO WAS YOU GUYS BEING EVEN BIGGER ASSHOELS AND JUMPING ABOARD THE SS-I-HATE-PARK-JIMIN WITHOUT KNOWING ANYTHING ABOUT WHAT WAS HAPPENING

WE KISSED AT A PARTY AND I WAS INSECURE ABOUT WHAT THAT FUCKING MEANT BECAUSE I’M AN EMOTIONALLY CONSTIPATED LOSER

HE DIDN’T TRY TO FUCK ME

AND FRANKLY

YOU DON’T GET TO FUCKING POLICE WHO I DO OR DON’T FUCK.

I AM A GROWN ASS MAN.

IF I WANT TO GET FUCKED SEVEN WAYS TO SUNDAY THEN I CAN.

IF I WANT TO GET MY HEART BROKEN BY PARK JIMIN AND HIS GLORIOUS ASS THAT IS MY GOD GIVEN RIGHT

 

Brat:

Hyung we’re sorry

We were crossing the line…

 

V:

Yeah…It was fucked up

 

Hoebi:

I’m sorry I shouldn’t have gone along with it. I was the one to introduce jimin to you guys, I should have been on his side too

 

Yoongi:

He’s our fucking friend.

And we were so shitty to him he probably doesn’t even want to see us anymore

He doesn’t look okay. He looks so far past okay I’m worried he’s not going to make it through the semester

And we did that.

Why the fuck would you guys just.

Not give him the benefit of the doubt?

There’s two sides to every story, even if this time the only story was me bitching cuz of my depression.

 

Joon:

We thought he was going to use you

For a hook up

 

Yoongi:

Namjoon.

Your boyfriend and you were strictly friends with benefits before your big emotional get together. You fucked like rabbits. Jungkook has slept with almost everyone in his year. You both are the LAST people that should be judging Jimin for anything sex related.

And frankly

What the fuck

Why are you trying to stop me from getting dick

Literally what the fuck you are supposed to be my friends

AND JIMIN’S FRIENDS

God we’re such hypocrites.

Fucking.

We were trying to encourage him to feel comfortable to talk to us about his hook ups and then we turn around a slut shame him?

We fucking slut shamed him.

We were doing the exact same fucking shit that every asshole on this campus has been doing since those fucking rumors about him started.

I’m so.

We’re assholes.

We’re genuine fucking assholes.

Jungkook, I expected better from you. You’re a sweet kid; that was cruel, what you said. And I know you’re smart—you knew it would hurt him. I’m disappointed.

Namjoon. You’re supposed to be the smart one. You weren’t supposed to listen to fucking rumors.

Hoseok, you’re a TA. You’re literally being such a fucking aksjfdsfkd for targeting Jimin. He’s probably tearing himself up trying to meet the standards you’ve probably impossibly raised. You KNOW he’s a fucking perfectionist

Seokjin, you should have known better.

And Taehyung. You go on and on about you’re Jimin’s soulmate, his bestfriend, how much you love him. Where the fuck were you when your bestfriend was being targeted by your own friends?

What the fuck is wrong with us?

 

V:

…we fucked up

 

Brat:

I’m sorry

I started this

This is my fault I’m sorry I wasn’t thinking

I was being stupid

 

Yoongi:

Well fucking fix it.

He didn’t deserve this shit.

Jiminie hyung

I’m sorry

I realize that I was blaming you for a situation that wasn’t your fault and I’m really sorry. I should’ve been a better friend to you and listened to your side of the story instead of only worrying about Yoongi-hyung. I’m sorry I wasn’t there for you when you needed me to be. ☹ Please forgive me Chiminie. I promise I’ll be a better friend for you ☹

I know you probably don’t want to talk to me, but can you let me know that you’re okay?

I haven’t heard from you…

Actually I don’t know when the last time I heard from you was and I know that makes me even worse of a soulmate…

Please be safe. I love you, and I’m an asshole soulmate

I’m sorry ☹

I was wrong to imply that any of the situation with Yoongi was in any way your fault. I didn’t know the whole story, and that’s no excuse for what I implied, and I should have listened to what you had to say without judgement. I’m sorry Jimin

You don’t have to forgive me, but I would like the chance to stay your friend, even though I made a huge mistake.

Hyung, I need to apologize to you. I was judgmental and projecting my insecurities onto you. You probably already assumed this but I used to be really careless with who I slept with. I hurt people, and I didn’t feel bad about it until Namjoon-hyung called me out on it when I first liked him. I hurt Yoongi back then too, a lot, and it really messed him up and it was my fault. I was projecting those insecurities on you, and that wasn’t okay. You’re a really nice person, Jimin-hyung, and I was blind and stupid to not see that you genuinely care about Yoongi. I’m really sorry for instigating so much shit, and I’m really sorry for the shitty things I did and said to you. I know I’ve been an asshole, and you don’t even have to talk to me anymore. I understand if you need me to leave you alone for a while. But I really am sorry hyung, and if you let me I want to try to make it up to you. Please. I’m really, really sorry. I made a mistake and you got hurt in the process, and I’m really, honestly, sorry.

I’m going to drop my class

 

Fetus:

…it’s really late in the semester…

Aren’t your finals in like two weeks?

 

Duckling:

Yeah

Its not like I’d pass that class anyway

My final was a performance with Yoongi

And we haven’t worked on it since before I fucked up

We won’t pass

So I’m dropping

 

Fetus:

You didn’t fuck up.

He fucked up.

You have to start accepting that

 

Duckling:

Point is

We’re too behind on our performance

 

Fetus:

…couldn’t you try and make it work?

 

Duckling:

I’m not meeting up with him.

He’s trying to talk to me more in class but I can’t

It makes me feel like I can’t breath

I can’t decide if I’m mad or sad about him suddenly changing his mind about hating me

I’m stupid

It’s too late to find a new partner so I’m going to drop

Yoongi can do a solo instead. He’s great at music

He’ll still get a good grade

 

Fetus:

Why don’t you do a solo?

 

Duckling:

I can’t make music

I’m emailing my professor right now

 

Fetus:

Is this just because you don’t want to see him?

 

Duckling:

Of course not

 

Fetus:

Hyung

 

Duckling:

Okay maybe

But

In my defense

I’m sensitive

And I don’t handle my emotions well, and he knows it so

Avoidance tactics

 

Fetus:

Fuck Yoongi for being so shitty about it

Fuck his big fucking mouth

 

Duckling:
It’s fine

He’s right

I can’t get mad at him for stating the truth

 

Fetus:
uh yeah you can

He was an asshole about it

He wasn’t trying to help you figure out your problems

he didn’t try to support you by having a well meaning intervention

He was attacking you and making you feel shitty about having problems

And using them against you.

He used your insecurities against you

You SHOULD be mad

 

Duckling:
I can’t be

 

Fetus:

Then I’LL be mad for the both of us

 

Duckling:

Thank you <3

I’m sorry I’m not a better hyung to you

I should be the one being protective

I’m not being bullied

Rather than taking a failing grade, I would rather formally remove myself from the class roster. It has been a pleasure taking this course up to this point.

Hello Yoongi! This email is to inform you that your partner for this semester’s final performance has withdrawn from class. Park Jimin will not be able to perform with you. Because this is a last-minute change to the program, you are encouraged to perform a solo piece for the final. If you could email me the attachments of all the collaboration you and Jimin have done prior to his withdrawal, I’ll be sure to input the proper grades.

 

Sorry for the inconvenience! Be sure to reach out if you need any additional assistance.

Yoongi:

<screenshot-attachment>

He fucking withdrew from the only class we share together.

 

Brat:

Oh

 

V:

I’m sorry hyung

 

Yoongi:

He doesn’t talk to me anymore

And he doesn’t giggle anymore or make comments to me, and now this

He doesn’t want to see me so bad that he withdrew from the class

Jimin hates me, and I can’t say I don’t blame him for it

I don’t know how to fix this

 

Brat:

Hyung

It might not have been because of you…

 

Yoongi:

Do you have any other explanation for why he dropped the ONLY class we have together directly after I’ve been trying to speak with him again?

After ignoring him and lashing out and hurting him?

Because I don’t

 

Brat:
no…

 

V:

I’ll try talking to him

 

Yoongi:

He has us all muted

 

V:

But he’s still in his dorm right?

 

Yoongi:

No

He isn’t

Because jaegyu still lives there

His asshole fucking roommate who makes living there hell

He didn’t report him

So he still lives with him

Jimin hates being in his dorm

He leaves and hangs out with one of us anytime he can

Literally, he only goes back to change his clothes and grab his stuff and sleep

He won’t be in the dorm

 

Jin:

Where has he been going the past weeks then since he hasn’t been with us?

 

Joon:

I think we all know where

 

Yoongi:

Namjoon.

 

Joon:

I didn’t mean it like that

I just meant

 

Yoongi:

No.

No digs.

No “I didn’t mean it”

We need to watch our fucking words before we make it worse

I “didn’t mean” to be such an asshole to you guys but it still hurt

Words fucking hurt, whether we mean them or not

 

Brat:

But he’s right…

You were locked in your apartment hyung

But we were on campus and we saw Jimin kind of

He was always out with someone

 

Yoongi:

Of course he was

His fucking friends turned on him

He needed to get out and distracted and we weren’t there for him

Sue him for trying to get something familiar

 

Jin:
okay look

Weren’t you the one who aggressively slut shamed Jimin?

And now suddenly you’re playing like you’ve never hurt him.

We all made mistakes yoongi

 

Yoongi:

I’m trying to fix them.

I don’t know if any of you are.

 

Jin:

I tried to apologize

It’s up to him if he accepts it or wants to speak to us again

We fucked him up, and he has every right to stay away from us.

I know what you’re trying to do Yoongi but you can’t put pressure on him to be our friend again

 

Yoongi:

He doesn’t know that we apologized

He knows that I tried in class, and it was honestly a really shitty apology and doesn’t in any way make up for the shit I said

He’s insecure

He probably thinks we hate him and he’s probably beating himself up about it

I just need him to know that it wasn’t his fault

If he doesn’t want to see us anymore after that, then fine

But I don’t want him to distance himself and keep thinking that people being shitty to him is his fault

He thinks he deserves every bad thing that happens to him and I’ve tried to show him that it’s not true

But idk if he believes me

He needs to know I’m the asshole here, not him

 

Joon:

Would he actually blame himself for this?

 

Yoongi:

Do you know what he said to me when I tried apologizing to him in class?

He told me that he shouldn’t have pushed. He said he should have given me my space, like I asked.

 

Brat:
oh

 

Yoongi:

Yeah

“oh”

I hope you fucking realize what we did

 

Jin:
yoongi

He’s a kid

 

Yoongi:

Yeahhh see

I don’t give a fuck right now

Because kids can be mean, too

he was just as bad as I was

And I’m a mean son of a bitch

So if the child can act so cruel, he can handle a bit of rudeness, don’t you think?

He shouldn’t be saying anything he can’t handle being said to him.

 

Jin:

He made a mistake

Calm down

 

V:

He’s already upset about what happened, hyung

He knows he messed up

Just calm down

 

Yoongi:

I’m calm Taehyung

I’m very calm

But I’m not stupid

I’ve been coddling you too much, Jungkook

I let you get away with too many moments you should have learned from

And that was my mistake

 

Brat:

No

I knew that you wouldn’t be okay with what I said but I thought he hurt you

I wanted him to hurt

…I was projecting onto him

 

Yoongi:
what

 

Brat:

When I hurt you…

I remember how bad you got

And I still feel horrible

And I didn’t want you to go through that with Jimin

So I tried to keep you guys away and it didn’t work

And I felt worse

Because I knew that if you got hurt I couldn’t help

And I turned that on him

And now I know that was stupid and I know I didn’t have a right to do that and it wasn’t okay

I told the others my suspicions and they didn’t believe me at first but I convinced them

So it’s my fault

And I’m sorry

I made things worse for you and Jimin-hyung

I should have trusted both of you and not gotten involved

…It wasn’t my relationship to meddle with, and I realize that now, and I’m sorry

I won’t do it again

I promise

 

Yoongi:

You convinced the others that Jimin was going to use me for sex.

 

Brat:

Yes

I’m sorry

 

Yoongi:

Jungkook

I love you

But you need to grow up and learn to stay out of my business.

I’m not a child. You’re not my mother.

I know you had good intentions, but I’m honestly so beyond livid by this whole thing that I’m going to put my phone down and calm down before I say something else I’m going to regret.

We’ll talk when I’ve calmed down.

 

V:

Kook

Come home

 

Brat:
okay

I’m sorry

This was my fault

 

V:

We’ll talk it through okay? It’s not unfixable

We’ll fix it

 

Jin:
how?

[Private Chat: “Mochi Squad”]

 

 

 

 

Duckling:

So

I checked my messages

 

Fetus:

And?

 

Duckling:

Funny story 😊

You’re gonna get a kick out of this 😊

Everyone is apologizing to me

 

Fetus:

 

Duckling:

It gets funnier!

Listen

YOONGI apologized first 😊

In class he cornered me and apologized and APPARENTLY he’s been texting me too

I had them muted like you asked so I didn’t see anything

But apparently they’ve all been messaging me! :D

I checked yesterday on accident and they’re ALL apologizing now

Suddenly they’re all remorseful :D

 

Fetus:

Hyung

Why do you sound pissed

 

Duckling:

That’s because I am :D

I noticed a trend, Ji

I noticed a huge trend

I’m not stupid, you know

I’m not

I noticed that whatever Yoongi does, the others do

So suddenly he feels bad for yelling at me and now the others do to!

Isn’t that funny?

 

Fetus:

Hyung…

Are you okay?

 

Duckling:

I’m kind of mad

I’m kind of really mad

Cuz it’s not fair

It’s not fucking fair that they only give me a chance when yoongi does

It’s not fucking fair that I know they don’t give a fuck about me unless yoongi does

Why does he get to be unconditionally loved despite the mean shit he says but god fucking forbid I mess up

 

Fetus:

They aren’t your friends

 

Duckling:

I fucking know that

I know they’re not my friends

They never wanted to be my friends and I was stupid enough to believe anyone would ever fucking like me

I’m so stupid  😂 

 

Fetus:

Jimin

 

Duckling:

What

It’s true

Nobody but you likes me

And fine

Whatever

I’ll fucking deal with it.

I’m just so tired of hearing from people that they’ll stay with me and then abandoning me the first chance they fucking get

I’m

So

Fucking

Tired of it.

 

Fetus:

It’s almost summer

 

Duckling:

Yeah

I won’t have to see them anymore

That’s good

 

Fetus:

Yeah

Some distance will help

 

Duckling:

Hoseok keeps looking like he kicked a puppy when he looks at me

 

Fetus:

…that’s…good?

 

Duckling:

No

It’s stupid

This whole situation is stupid

He’s been yelling at me in practice for over a month now and all of a sudden he’s trying to be nice to me?

None of them have told me what I’ve done wrong the first time and then they cut me out like I was nothing to them and now they’re apologizing out of nowhere

I don’t like it

How long until they decide I’m the bad guy again?

How long until

 

Fetus:

Don’t forgive them

 

Duckling:

I can’t avoid them

 

Fetus:

Jimin

Cmon

 

Duckling:

I can’t avoid them

Hoseok is in the dance program with me, so he’s in most of my classes. The others pop in and out of my classes and I would see them on campus

I can’t avoid them even if I wanted to

You think I didn’t try when they were ignoring me?

They were fucking everywhere I turned. Jin saw me leave one of the parties covered in sweat and bruises and he looked pissed off :) I can't :) fucking :) escape them :)

 

Fetus:

I’ll hide you from them

If I see them I’ll throw a jacket over you or something

 

Duckling:

Jihyun

You can’t just do that

 

Fetus:

Sure I can

Just watch

I’ll even fight yoongi

Hell I’ll bulk up this summer and throw hands with Jungkook

Just watch

 

Duckling:

Or

You could NOT do that

And let me deal with it

 

Fetus:

That’s no fun

 

Duckling:

It’s not supposed to be fun

It’s real life

 

Fetus:

Let me fight them

 

Duckling:

No

 

Fetus:

Are you going to keep talking to them?

 

Duckling:

I don’t know

I don’t want to make this a bigger deal than it is

What’s the point in adding another rumor? How does it sound:

“Park Jimin can’t keep his friends close, or his legs closed”

Has a catchy fucking ring to it

 

Fetus:

Shut up.

Literally, just shut up. This isn’t your fucking fault.

You never hid the fact that you slept with people

You never fucking led anyone on

Whatever fucking impression they got of you was from their own ignorant ideas and them giving weight to bullshit rumors

They literally

Ganged up on you for fucks sake

You can’t keep blaming yourself for being fucking bullied by your supposed friends.

It’s not fucking fair to you and it makes me want to punch them for not realizing how badly you spiral.

 

Duckling:

Sorry

I’m just mad

This is how I cope

 

Fetus:

you didn’t deserve it

stop acting like you did

 

Duckling:

Ehhhhh

 

Fetus:

Ehhhh?

Tf you mean ehhhh?

You didn’t

I’m glad they realized they were wrong and are apologizing even if they’re too fucking late.

 

Duckling:

Did they though? :/

Idk

It’s not worth ignoring them

They’re just gonna keep seeing me around

I’m tired dude

I don’t want to have to worry about them too

I’m so scared that they’re only doing this now

And then the minute I get comfortable again

They’re going to decide I’ve done something else wrong and I’ll have to go through this again

I’m so fucking terrified about this

 

Fetus:

I’d like to offer a solution:

Cut! Them! Out!

 

Duckling:

That takes too much energy

I’m just

I’ll treat them like classmates

Cuz they are

But they obviously don’t wanna be my friends

And maybe they’re pretending now for some reason I can’t figure out but

I’m not gonna fall for it

I’m not doing this again. I don’t want to force them to be friends with me

And that’s fine

I’m glad I learned this now, at least

 

Fetus:

Okay hear me out

You could NOT do that

And I can punch them

I have 6 punches ready

Your fists may be tiny but I have dad’s hands

I’m ready to use them to deck six dicks

 

Duckling:

Why are you so filled with rage

 

Fetus:

I take after you

 

Duckling:

Tf I’m not angry

 

Fetus:

Sure you are

You take after mom

She’s scary

 

Duckling:

She’s an angel

 

Fetus:

Of course YOU would say that 👀

Whatever

I have an appointment to see an advisor at your school by the way

To get my dorm assignment and class schedule and all that fun stuff

We’re still sharing right?

 

Duckling:

Yeah I put the paperwork in last week

I’m fucking done with jaegyu

 

Fetus:

Kk

Can you drive me there please

Mom probably won’t let me take the car by myself

And I won’t want to bring dad

 

Duckling:

I literally

Don’t have a car

 

Fetus:

…I’ll convince dad to let me drive then

 

Duckling:

You can stay in my dorm!!!

 

Fetus:

Or!!!

We could NOT stay in the same room as your dickhead roommate!!!

And YOU can stay with ME in my hotel room I’m booking!!

 

Duckling:

Stop spending money

 

Fetus:

Dad told me to get the room

He said not to bother you in college

 

Duckling:

Lmao they know you’re a pest

 

Fetus:

Lmao it’s funny how you think I don’t know how much you love me <3

 

Duckling:

Brat

 

Fetus:

I take after you <3

 

Duckling:

<3

 

 

 

 

 

 

2:21PM THURSDAY 3 MAY

 

 

 

 

Duckling:

Taehyung apologized to me again

In person this time

 

Fetus:

What?

 

Duckling:

I ran into him in the dining hall

He apologized again

 

Fetus:

What happened? What did he do?

Like

Exactly what he did

 

Duckling:

He just sat down at the table with me with his food

It was stupid

And he apologized

Told me he was an asshole

 

Fetus:

He is

 

Duckling:

Yeah

He said that and he kept apologizing

And he cried

And I felt bad because he was crying but like

He didn’t

I

This is going to sound really petty but like

He didn’t care when I cried?

So

Kjsfhlkjsdgh

I don’t know ji

I feel weird

He’s acting like he cares again

 

Fetus:

…I hate to say this

But maybe he does?

Just a little?

He seemed like the least despicable one

 

Duckling:

No

He just feels guilty probably

Idk

Idk what his reasoning is but he apologized

And cried

He kept asking me if we could be friends again

 

Fetus:

What did you say?

 

Duckling:

I said okay

Cuz I’m stupid

And he was crying

I don’t like this

I’m too stupid to not be nice

 

Fetus:

Jimin

 

Duckling:

Tears, ji! Tears!

I feel bad

So I said okay

But like

Idk it’s dumb but I miss tae

And everyone makes mistakes right?

I just

Won’t be so stupid anymore

I can be his friend and keep my distance

 

Fetus:

What do you mean?

 

Duckling:

He doesn’t need to know anything personal about me

Like work friends

I miss him

 

Fetus:

He was a dick

 

Duckling:

Yeah

But

Idk

Idk we’ll see how this goes I just

I miss my bestfriend here

And he cried

So he’s gotta feel a little bad right?

I can work with pity

 

Fetus:

I respect your decision (but I still think you should cut them out)

But if he fucks up again

I’m going to personally kick him

 

Duckling:

I’m kind of anxious

Actually maybe this is a bad idea I should just

 

Fetus:

No

Stop

Stop that

You’re doing that thing where you spiral again

Just

Okay I can’t believe I’m saying this but

If you really want to be friends with them again

And they’re really trying to apologize

Maybe…see how it plays out?

It’s the end of the term

My visit is next week with the advisor

And I can see if they’re being sincere

And if they aren’t I’ll help you keep them away

 

Duckling:

Why are you suddenly telling me to be friends with them?

 

Fetus:

Because

You’re lonely

And they made you happy

And as shitty as they are

As much as I hate them

They made you happy

So

Akjfhdslkjghergjlvef I feel stupid now too this might blow up in your face

 

Duckling:

Wow thanks for the vote of confidence

 

Fetus:

Just…

Try it

But be careful hyung

Maybe this entire thing was really a misunderstanding and they aren’t completely fucking pompous assholes

 

Duckling:

This doesn’t reassure me

 

Fetus:

That’s because I don’t like the words I’m saying

Sorry if its not helpful

I don’t really trust them but everyone does stupid shit

 

Duckling:

Ugh

Ishf;kaduh;erkg

Fine

I’ll see

 

 

 

 

 

 

7:02PM THURSDAY 3 MAY

 

 

 

 

Duckling:

Hoseok keeps being nice to me and seokjin-hyung waited after dance for me with cookies

I don’t know what I’m supposed to do with this

Jihyun

Jihyun please I need help I don’t know why they’re doing this

 

Fetus:

Fuck I don’t know either

They did a 180

 

Duckling:

I know I don’t like it

Are they trying to bribe me?

Is this them trying to get me to do something for them?

I don’t like it.

 

Fetus:

…me neither

 

 

 

 

 

 

9:37PM THURSDAY 3 MAY

 

 

 

 

Duckling:

Ksudgheflkgjhaelrkjg now it’s namjoon

JIHYUN I DON’T LIKE THIS WHY ARE THEY DOING THIS

 

Fetus:

What are you saying to them? To their apologies

 

Duckling:

I’m saying okay because I want them to leave me alone

Taehyung was the only one I was thinking about trying again with but I don’t know anymore

I don’t know what’s happening or why they’re suddenly being nice to me again

I don’t like not knowing what they’re planning

What if I accept their apologies and they cut me out again

I’m

I can’t do this I cant do this stress

Your visit is tomorrow right? I know your appointment isn’t until Monday but you’re still coming down tomorrow right?

1:56PM FRIDAY 4 MAY

 

 

 

[Private Chat: “Mochi Squad”]

 

Fetus:

I’m here!

 

Duckling:

I just got out of class I’m coming

 

Fetus:

Hurryyyyyy

 

Duckling:

I’m running

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

[“Explain Yourselves”]

 

Brat:

Hey um

I just saw jimin running past the square…

Do you think he’s okay?

 

Yoongi:

Who fucking knows

 

Brat:

…I’m going to follow him and see if he’s okay

 

Jin:

Honestly, with how bad yoongi said the bullies were, that might not be a terrible idea

He might be in trouble

 

Brat:

I’m checking

 

 

2:11PM FRIDAY 4 MAY

 

 

Brat:

Um

I have an update

 

Joon:
go on?

Is he okay?

 

Brat:

I um

Yoongi-hyung?

 

Yoongi:

What

 

Brat:

…um

Nevermind

It’s not my business what jimin does

 

Yoongi:

Correct

But is he alright? Is he safe? That’s our business. His safety

 

Brat:

Yes

He’s fine

He’s with a friend I think

They’re hugging and laughing

 

Yoongi:

Oh

Good

That’s good

I’m glad he has someone

 

Brat:

Shit

They saw me

 

Joon:

What did they do?

 

Brat:

Jimin-hyung stopped laughing and he pulled the other guy away into the building

Um

I don’t think the other guy knows me?

 

Joon:

Do you recognize him?

 

Jin:

I’m going to cut in here and ask why we’re spying on jimin

We confirmed he’s safe

 

Brat:

I’m not

I just

He was running

 

Jin:

And now we’ve confirmed he’s okay

We should give him the space he needs to spend time with people that make him happy

Right now, it isn’t us.

We shouldn’t be invading where he feels safe

 

Yoongi:

Way to rub it in

 

Jin:

I’m trying not to be blinded by my own prejudice anymore

And being the reasonable one

I’m trying to think about what he would want and how to respect him after disrespecting every decision he has made up to this point. I’ve done a bad job at it

It’s not about what I want

Jimin has a right to be happy

We shouldn’t intrude on that

 

Brat:

Should I leave then?

 

Tae:

Yeah

This isn’t the time for him to see us

He’s happy and we should let him be after how shit he’s been having it

Come on

We’ll go get coffee

And come up with a plan

 

Brat:

Okay

Hyung?

Yoongi hyung?

 

Yoongi:

What?

 

Brat:

Do you want to come too?

I’ll pay…

 

Yoongi:

Not today Jungkook

I’m not up for socializing today

 

Brat:

Okay

Okay um I can bring you something back?

 

Yoongi:

Americano

 

Tae:

Got it

Namjoon?? You coming too?

 

Joon:

I was invited?

 

Tae:

Don’t you automatically tag along with kook?

 

Joon:

We spend time apart

 

Brat:

Can you come too?

 

Joon:

Yeah I’ll meet you guys there

I’m finishing up at the library right now

 

Brat:

Thank you <3

I love you

 

Joon:

I love you too, kook <3

 

Tae:

Gross

 

Yoongi:

Yep

 

 

3:23PM FRIDAY 4 MAY

 

 

 

Tae:

SOS SOS SOS

 

Jin:

WHAT HAPPENED

 

Hobi:

WHO DIED

TALK TO ME

TAEHYUNG

JUNGKOOK???

NAMJOON!!

OH MY GOD THEY’RE FUCKING DEAD

 

Jin:

WHERE ARE YOU WHO DO I NEED TO KILL

TAEHYUNG ANSWER ME

 

Tae:

JIMIN IS IN THE CAFÉ

HE’S GETTING COFFEE WITH THE STRANGE DUDE

HE HASN’T SEEN US YET AND I WANT TO LEAVE BUT I ALSO DON’T WANT HIM TO SEE US WHAT DO

HE SAW US

 

Yoongi:

Fuck

 

Brat:

Jimin just tried to leav

Strange dude grabbed him and made him stay

 

Hobi:

Um okay I know we were dicks and I have no right to be annoyed but wtf is that guy doing forcing jimin to stay anywhere

 

Jin:

Murder is on my mind

 

Hobi:

Tae

Update

Cmon

 

Tae:

Strange guy is apparently named Jihyun

He calls jimin “hyung” so they know each other really well

Fuck

 

Brat:

He hates us

 

Tae:

Hates us a lot yes indeed

 

Hobi:

Who is he?

What happened?

 

Yoongi:

That’s jimin’s brother

 

Jin:

Jimin’s

Brother

Jimin has a brother

 

Joon:

I’ve never felt so intimidated by a child before

I’ve met less intimidating gang members

 

Jin:

WHAT DID HE DO?!

STOP BEING CRYPTIC

HOW OLD IS THIS CHILD?

IS JIMIN OKAY?

 

Brat:

He’s my age, I think

He doesn’t like us

(He hates us, actually)

Jimin recognized us and he was going to leave but this jihyun grabbed his arm and made him stay

And then he asked jimin what was wrong cuz hyung wanted coffee apparently and he was smiling and dopey at first

but jimin didn’t say anything and then jihyun was glaring at our table suddenly

and it was scary he wasn’t smiling anymore and he looked intimidating

 

Tae:

I got chills down my spine

He has so much rage in his eyes

I felt like I was looking into the face of vengeance

Wrath personified

 

Hobi:

Yikes

What happened?

Did he hurt you?

 

Joon:

I spilled my coffee cuz he scared me

And jimin looked at us again and I said hi

Cuz I’m stupid

 

Yoongi:

Jfc namjoon

 

Joon:

I’m sorry ☹

I was trying to like

Sit still and not make a scene and wait for them to leave so we wouldn’t bother them but the kid glared at me and he’s terrifying hyung

I jumped cuz he took a step towards our table and my elbow hit my coffee and then I was wearing it

 

Yoongi:

Once

Just once

I would like it if you didn’t risk injury during important moments

 

Joon:

 

Jin:

WHAT HAPPENED NEXT

 

Tae:

Well

Jimin said hi to us from his spot in line

And said our names

And Jihyun looked like he was getting more and more angry with each of us when he heard who we were and uh

 

Brat:

Jimin said hi to me and said my name and his brother looked like he was ready to punch me

But he didn’t

He um

He kind of yelled at me though

…I deserved that

 

Tae:

He was a bit harsh though

He didn’t have to be so mean

Especially in public like that

 

Brat:

So was i

On jimin

 

Joon:
He wasn’t happy with us

Jimin told him what happened, I think

…I’m actually really glad he had someone to talk to though

And that someone is angry on his behalf that he trusts

 

Yoongi:

What did jihyun say to you?

 

Tae:

Same thing you said to us

Just

Meaner

Basically called us assholes and hypocrites and he kind of really dug into Jungkook, specifically

 

Brat:

It’s fine

 

Tae:

Joon didn’t like it

 

Joon:

Would you like some stranger making your boyfriend cry?

Didn’t think so

 

Yoongi:

Kook, you okay?

 

Brat:

..I’m fine

I’m okay, really it’s not a big deal

I deserved what he said I know I was wrong

I’m glad someone is defending him

 

Yoongi:

Kook, are you lying about being okay?

Because we all fucking suck at communication and I don’t want this to be another suppressed thing we don’t talk about that ends up blowing up in our faces again

 

Brat:

Okay I’m a little upset but it’s fine

I can handle getting yelled at

Like you said, if I’m going to be mean, I should handle getting people be mean back

It’s not like jimin-hyung will yell at me

 

Tae:

He was still rude

Jimin tried to shut him up though

Ended up dragging him out of the coffee shop

He actually came back and apologized for his brother’s behavior…

 

Jin:

…well now I feel even more guilty for what we did

He keeps being nice to us and I can’t say we deserve it

 

Tae:

…yeah

But um

Good news?

 

Yoongi:

Good news?

 

Tae:

Yeah

Kooks apologized to Jimin before he took off after his brother

Like sincere

And jimin didn’t completely brush him off

And kook asked if they could sit down and talk sometime when Jimin has time

He didn’t flat out refuse??

Good sign??

 

Yoongi:

Maybe

Jimin is rarely confrontational

Are you guys still at the coffee shop?

 

Joon:

Yep

 

Yoongi:

Bring me my coffee

I’m gonna be pulling an all nighter

 

Brat:

Okay

Can I hang out a little?

 

Yoongi:

Yeah

We need to talk anyway

Taehyungie:

Yoongi:

Brat:

I fucking told you

 

V:

And I was gonna agree with him but then I remembered that he has nothing to apologize for

And I told him that

I told him that we hurt him and he didn’t have to apologize and he tried to brush me off

and then I called him and I apologized and I kind of cried because it felt so different from before

and he was mostly quiet but when I asked him to honestly tell me if he was mad at us, he hesitated a lot before he said no

he lied to me ☹

I asked him how much we hurt him and he kind of choked up and changed the subject

he didn’t answer any of my questions about him directly but he didn’t hang up on me and he accepted my apology

it’s so different hyung it didn’t even feel like I was talking to minie

he’s so subdued but he didn’t hang up on me

I think it’s a start?

 

Yoongi:

Yeah

Yeah actually it is

Thank you

 

V:

I didn’t do anything

I’m just

You were right

I was an asshole

And I shouldn’t have played favorites

And yeah you’re a dick and I’ve been treating you like you’ll break if I call you out and you’re right. You make mistakes

And it was a dick move of me to claim all this shit about jimin being my bestfriend and then turning on him

I didn’t think I was turning on him at the time though, which is so stupid, because that’s exactly what I did? I let rumors cloud my judgement and didn’t let him explain himself and I brushed him off when he was reaching out like we encouraged him to. I didn’t even realize how shitty I was being to him until recently, either, which is worse

I suck

I wanna fix it

I miss him ☹

 

Joon:

I think we’re going to have a big emotional moment here

but I was thinking about it, and you’re right

yoongi

 

Yoongi:

what?

 

Joon:

You were right

I made a mistake in immediately blaming him

I’m supposed to be the logical one, and the moment it counted I let my overprotectiveness of you get in my way

I was too used to always being correct, and I was blinded by how distressed Kook was at the thought of you getting hurt, and then at the thought of you spiraling back to how you used to be at your lowest point, and I let it go too far. I should’ve taken a step back from the situation that was spiraling and deescalated it before it got that far.

And I’m going to tell jimin this the next time I see him so he knows that he wasn’t to blame. Even if he doesn’t want to be our friend anymore, or see us, he deserves an honest apology and to know that he didn’t mess up

 

Yoongi:

Not that I’m not happy you’re getting your shit together

But what brought this on?

If this is guilt fueled, I don’t think you should be going near him, either

 

Joon:

Of course it’s guilt fueled, hyung

I’m guilty that I hurt a friend

The guilt made me reflect on my actions, and I realized how in the wrong I was. You know my biggest problem is not accepting failure or that I’m wrong—I was holding onto the idea that I must be right about my assumptions, and that the only way to keep everything alright was to prevent something I didn’t even need to prevent, and  I didn’t stop to consider that people aren’t simple and I’m not always right. And maybe guilt triggered me into this thought process, but if I hadn’t been so adamant about being right about jimin and his intentions, then I might’ve been able to stop this

 

Brat:

Hyung

 

Joon:

Hush, kook

I’m just as guilty as you are

If not more

I put the idea into your head

 

Brat:

I took it too far

 

Joon:

I didn’t stop it

We’re both to blame

I’m going to apologize to him

 

Yoongi:

I can’t say I’m disappointed by this

I’m glad you finally pulled your head out of your ass, joon

You too, tae

Anyone else have realizations?

 

Hobi:

I let the professor know in dance that I’ve been treating Jimin unfairly

 

Jin:

Hobi?!

 

Hobi:

It was the right thing to do

I’m supposed to be impartial

I still have my position, but I’m not allowed to assess jimin at the end of the semester

The instructor will personally see Jimin’s abilities

I’m going to apologize to him, too, since I took it even further and took out my frustrations on him in class

I wish I could say I didn’t realize I was doing it, but i knew I was mad at him and my actions reflected that anger. It was unfair and unprofessional

So I’m going to apologize, too

 

Yoongi:

Jin?

 

Jin:

For the record, it’s stupid that I’m having to type this out here but we’re in a sharing circle apparently and yoongi is right that we seem to have a problem with communication so

I’m also feeling guilty for hurting jimin. I didn’t protect him from us, and that was my mistake. I don’t know him as well as I wish I did, so I’m not sure the extent of the harm pushing him away will do, but I’m going to apologize and try to make things right. I shouldn’t have ignored his distress in favor of yours.

 

Brat:

I um

I’m going to try to apologize to him next time

Better

And explain everything

 

Yoongi:

Jungkook

I don’t want you feeding him excuses for your behavior

We’re all taking responsibility

 

Brat:

No

I’m not going to

I promise

I’m writing it out and I’m making joon read it and I want to send it to you too so I don’t say the wrong thing

I promise I’m going to fix this

 

Yoongi:

Well

Took you fuckers long enough

 

V:

Are you still mad at us

 

Yoongi:

No

Okay yes

But I’m mad at myself too

But you’re my friends

And friends stick together and fix the shit they fucked up

So

 

V:

You do love us after all :’)

 

Yoongi:

Don’t get used to it

 

Brat:

<3

 

Joon:

Softie <3

 

Yoongi:

I will pour bleach into your shampoo namjoon don’t fucking test me

Hobi:

So I have met the brother

And you were right

He scares me

 

V:

I TOLD YOU

HE’S SCARY

 

Brat:

Did he yell at you too?

 

Hobi:

kinda

He ambushed me in the stairwell

Got in my face about being a bully

And a hypocrite

(also how is he tall,,,but jimin is so small?)

 

Yoongi:

I’m not gonna lie I’m kind of happy jimin has someone to go on the war path for him

Did you see him?

 

Hobi:

Yeah

He showed up right the brother was getting scary

For real he looked like he was either going to punch me, push me off the stairs, or threaten to bury my body alive

Or all three

But like he was calm about it

Scary calm

Like he already played through every scenario and knew without an ounce of doubt that nobody would catch him

He didn’t even yell and I was intimidated?

Explain that?

 

Brat:

He’s full of righteous anger at us

And feeding off of our guilty feelings

I feel like most of his intimidation factor is that we’re already guilty and he’s reminding us of why

 

Jin:

That’s a great explanation actually wow

Jungkook can be smart?

 

Brat:

Ha ha

 

Hobi:

Anyway

Jimin stopped him before he hurt me

And apologized and scolded the brother

And then I apologized to him

He tried to brush me off too but I kept going and he got really quiet afterwards and in the tiniest voice he said ‘thank you’ and then left

I feel so bad ☹

I hurt him bad

 

Brat:

I’m sorry

 

Hobi:

It’s okay kook

We all went along with it

You weren’t forcing us to act like that to jimin—we did that

 

Yoongi:

Hoseok

You can’t keep telling him he hasn’t done anything wrong

 

Jin:

You’re sounding like his father

 

Yoongi:

I’m practically his brother.

 

Brat:

Please stop

I was wrong and hyung is right

Nobody stopped me and that encouraged me

I just want to fix this

 

Yoongi:

See?

He’s growing up

I’ve stopped coddling him for this short of time and he’s already thinking his age and taking responsibility for his actions

I’m a great fucking brother

 

Brat:

Please don’t say it like that

I’m not a kid

 

Yoongi:

You sure as shit acted like one

…alright fair

Because

Bring me coffee on the way?

 

Brat:

…why can’t you get your own coffee?

 

Sleepy Hyung:

Because you and namjoon feel guilty enough for the shit that happened that you’ll get me whatever I want right now, duh

 

Brat:

Um

 

Sleepy Hyung:

Am I wrong?

 

Brat:

No? but now I don’t want to bring you coffee??

If anything I should be bringing Jimin coffee and apologizing again

 

Sleepy Hyung:

You’re an overachiever

Do both

Apologize to him and bring me coffee

 

Brat:

I have to find him first

 

Sleepy Hyung:

No, coffee first

It’s gonna be a long chat

Can’t yoongi wait?

 

Ggukie:

No ☹ he said he wants to talk to us

 

Monie:

But ☹

Food ☹

 

Ggukie:

Tell jin-hyung to save some for you?

 

Monie:

He’s mad at me

He won’t

 

Ggukie:

Jin-hyung is mad at you?

 

Monie:

Well

Yes and no

He’s mad at me and himself for not stepping in and deescalating before things got this bad and then he’s projecting that onto me

I guess you got that from jin-hyung

 

Ggukie:

 

Monie:

…sorry

Sorry, gguk that was too far

I shouldn’t have said that

 

Ggukie:

It’s okay

It’s true

 

Monie:

Still

I shouldn’t be so careless with my words

I need to watch what I say

I’m sorry

 

Ggukie:

Joonie

I think we really fucked up everything

 

Monie:

Yeah, ggukie, I think we did

 

Ggukie:

How do we fix it?

I know we messed it up

I should have kept my mouth shut and let yoongi handle everything

I should have listening to the others when they told me to stop before it got this far

 

Monie:

I shouldn’t have encouraged you

 

Ggukie:

Jin-hyung needs to apologize too

And hobi-hyung

Yoongi-hyung was right when he got mad at us

How do we fix it?

 

Monie:

Apologizing

Admitting we were wrong and growing from it

Using this as an experience we learn from and making sure to never do it again.

 

Ggukie:

All I learned is that I fucked up and that I'm a mean person

and i hurt my friend and it feels awful

 

Monie:

…can I ask a question?

 

Ggukie:

Always <3

 

Monie:

Okay <3

Why were you so set on believing that jimin couldn’t change?

I know why I played along

But why you?

We were in the same situation

And I see that now

So, my real question is, what made yoongi and jimin's situation different from ours?

 

Ggukie:

…promise not to hate me

 

Monie:

It can’t be that bad, right?

 

Ggukie:

Promise me

Please

I need to know you won’t hate me for this

i love you too much to lose you please promise me

 

Monie:

Okay

I promise <3


Ggukie:

Don’t text until I finish

I need to get it out before you type

 

Monie:

Okay

 

Ggukie:

I fucked up twice because I slept around. I fucked up with Yoongi because I was too terrified to commit to anything. I fucked up with you because I didn’t want to think that I felt anything for you on the chance that you didn’t love me. I knew you were open to having fuckbuddies from what I heard on campus, and I jumped on that, and I still regret letting us meet that way

I wish I could go back and do it right

And take you on dates and make you fall in love with me the way it should have been and hold your hand before I held your dick and not made you feel like we would only ever be fuck buddies

But we fucked and kept doing it because it was fun and I was just another person who couldn’t commit to anything while you were amazing. You had a future in music production, you were talented, gorgeous, and so out of my league I didn’t think I would ever be able to get anything more in life than what I had. I resigned to being a blip in time for you. It was stupid to think you’d like me, because nobody gets successful from film and dance. Nobody. I would have been holding you back

Remember when we fell apart from our fwb arrangement? When I bolted after you told me you wanted to date me? That you got feelings for me? You were so relaxed and you had so much faith that I loved you, and I did, I loved you so much, but I didn’t want to admit it, and I ran off. I kept sleeping around because I was afraid of committing to you

I was trying to forget you with everyone else to convince myself that it didn't feel wrong and it hurt because I couldn’t forget you at all. And then I heard from the hyungs that you knew I was sleeping around, and that you would cry in your studio listening to the cover we did and that you missed me

You were crying because I didn’t know how to commit to someone. I loved you. I really did, but I was terrified to commit and date and it hurt you. I hurt you so badly and i still hate myself for it.

I loved yoongi (as a brother of course) but I confused that platonic affection for something romantic, and it scared me, so I hurt him too.

I hurt both of you because I treated you like you were disposable and not like you were important to me

And hearing that something similar was happening to Jimin made me remember all of that. It made me remember hurting you with my shit, and hurting yoongi with my shit, and how guilty I felt for hurting you both

And I didn’t want anyone to hurt

I didn’t want yoongi to feel used again, and I didn’t want Jimin to realize how badly he had fucked up with yoongi and feel that self hatred I felt

And I made it worse

I wanted to keep them just friends so that they didn’t keep an attachment

Sex is all fun and games until you get attached and they were getting so so attached so fast. I know myself, and I know jimin, and I know it would have scared him. I know it would scare yoongi if they slept together.

I was trying to keep everything from falling apart like it did with us. I thought I was helping them, and that it would be better in the end if nobody had to struggle. I thought I was doing the right thing

But I fucked it up

I was being selfish

And I thought I could control things out of my control

I’m sorry

You can type now

I’m sorry

 

Monie:

Jeon Jungkook

First of all

Thank you for telling me this. I didn’t realize what had happened was still affecting you to this extent, and I’m sorry about that

And we definitely need to sit down and talk about this some more because it isn’t healthy for that guilt to keep festering in you like this

That said:

You need to stop living in the past

You’re young, but you’re living your life dwelling on things from the past and you're letting them overtake you

You hurt me back then, yes, but we fixed it. We sat down, and we talked, and we took it slow because I understood your anxieties.

I shouldn’t have planted the idea in your head. I think I was projecting the insecurities I felt about you from back then onto Jimin, too, and that was also a mistake.

We both need to apologize and make things better, but we also need to change our behavior. I need to realize that there are opinions and actions outside of myself and learn to listen to them. You need to stop letting your guilt over your past actions rule your current ones. And we both need to stop projecting our insecurities onto people

We owe Jimin a huge apology

 

Ggukie:

Yeah

I’m going to

I don’t know how but I will

 

Monie:

We’ll find a way

Let’s go get Yoongi his coffee, okay? You and i can talk more about this later, and put these guilts to rest. Spend the night?

 

Ggukie:

Okay <3

Do you hate me?

 

Monie:

I promised I wouldn’t

I love you <3 Even if you’re a dumbass

 

Ggukie:

…You’re literally a himbo

 

Monie:

YOU BITE YOUR TONGUE

 

Ggukie:

Lmao <3 meet me at the coffee shop on campus

Hurry! I miss your dumb face

 

Monie:

I take back everything I said, I hate you

 

Ggukie:

 

Monie:

Fine I miss you too

Park Jihyun.

What the fuck did you do.

 

Fetus:

Well you see 😅

It’s a funny story!

 

Duckling:

Don’t fucking joke about this.

You punched Jungkook, in front of at least 15 people.

What the actual fuck were you thinking?

 

Fetus:

Oh

You’re MAD mad

Um

I didn’t think you’d be this mad

And I didn’t think there’d be that many people out this late….

 

Ducking:

It’s the weekend, Jihyun. Who isn’t out.

Tell me what the fuck made you think it would be okay to punch him.

 

Fetus:

He hurt you

 

Duckling:

So?

A lot of people hurt me, Jihyun. You haven’t punched them. You didn’t punch Namjoon.

Why the fuck did you punch Jungkook.

 

Fetus:

Hyung

Please don’t be mad at me

 

Duckling:

Too fucking late

Do you know what you did, Ji?

You punched the golden fucking child

Hoseok, Yoongi, Jin, Tae, and Namjoon baby this kid.

He’s their favorite

They spoil him.

And now he probably has a black eye or a split lip or something

And he hates me so much he’s going to tell them that I did it, not you

And then the peace is going to be broken and Hoseok is probably going to fail me

 

Fetus:

…I didn’t think about that

 

Duckling:

I know you didn’t.

I told you to let me handle it.

I told you to drop it.

 

Fetus:

Can you please come back?

I’m sorry

I didn’t mean to ruin things for you

Hyung, please come back

It’s been hours

Are you still on your campus?

Please, I’m sorry ☹

 

Duckling:

I’m fixing things.

Stop throwing punches.

And fucking listen to me next time.

 

Fetus:

What do you mean you’re fixing things?

Jimin?

 

Duckling:

What do you think it means, Ji?

I’m apologizing before he tells the others.

 

Fetus:

You shouldn’t apologize

I threw the punch

 

Duckling:

Yeah

But who knows what he’ll say

Fetus:

Are you okay?

What happened?

 

Duckling:

I’m fine

I’ll explain better when I get home

I went to the dorm Jungkook shares with Taehyung. He was icing his jaw, and he didn’t look happy

I apologized

And he got mad

So I apologized again and then he apologized and started saying some weird stuff

He had a paper apparently, all written out

He told me he was going to read from it so he didn’t fuck up his words again

He had this big, stupid apology ready and told me that he deserved to get punched

And I kept trying to apologize and leave but Taehyung started apologizing too

Again

So I ran out of there

 

Fetus:

…Jungkook apologized?

 

Duckling:

I guess so

 

Fetus:

Did you accept it?

 

Duckling:

I don’t know

He seemed sincere

 

Fetus:

…but?

 

Duckling:

But he hates me

and he makes me anxious

If I accept him as a friend again, he’s only going to be watching and scrutinizing my every move, at best

At worst, he’s going to turn everyone against me again

I’m back

You made me go back but I want to come back ☹ You said you’d spend the night

 

Ggukie:

I’m sorry

Tae said Jimin was coming over

I had to apologize

 

Monie:

His brother punched you though >:(

 

Ggukie:

Yeah

But you didn’t see Jimin’s expression

He looked scared

When his brother threw the punch at, I saw that Jimin looked scared

And he kept yelling at him after

Pushed him away from us and yelled at him to go back, remember?

And then I saw him when you were helping me back up

He was shaking

Like he was genuinely scared

 

Monie:

He apologized to me before we left

You heard right?

 

Ggukie:

Yeah

And then he came over to my dorm to do it again

I got to apologize to him though

If I had to get a bruise to get the chance to fix this, then so be it

I don’t think he forgave me, but I’m going to fix it

The right way

 

Monie:

Guess it’s my turn to apologize, huh?

I’m proud of you Ggukie

You’re making responsible decisions <3

 

Ggukie:

I’m trying my best <3

Come over now

He knows how to punch
