 [Tuesday]

chimchim created group Nice Guys Finish Last

chimchim added Seokjinnie, Joonie, Taebear, HobiHobi, gamerboy97, Suga to participants

 

Seokjinnie
Um?

Suga
What is this?

gamerboy97
^ what he said

Taebear
Really Jimin?
Another drunken group chat?

HobiHobi
What is up with the group name

Joonie
You're added to a group chat with 6 strangers and the thing that first concerns you is the group's name?
...
ok now that I've read it again, I see your point

chimchim
no no
this isn't another drunken gc i promise
it's a completely conscious decision

Suga
doesn't exactly make it a good one

Seokjinnie 
Care to explain Jimin?

Joonie
Hi honey

Seokjinnie 
Hi Joonie

chimchim
^^^ goals
literal goals
when will I ever

HobiHobi
...
all they did was say hi to each other

Taebear
chim is just going through a severe dry spell right now, please just ignore him
Plus he ships them really hard but still has a huge crush on Namjoon hyung

chimchim
if you know them you'd understand!!!
and hey!
I am not going through a dry spell okay?!

Seokjinnie 
I love how he denied the dry spell thing but didn't deny having a crush on Namjoon
I see how it is Park Jimin.

Suga
ok now that we've sorted out your love life, can you tell us why the hell does this group exist and how you got my number?

HobiHobi
mine too

gameboy97
^ what they said

chimchim
the compulsory chemistry exam we took yesterday
we were the ones to last hand in our papers
I was waiting in the dean's office and got really bored so I took a picture of the last page of the sign sheet
it had all of our info on it and that's how this gc was created
oh and you probably get the name now

HobiHobi
You know that phrase has a double meaning right?

Suga
What made you think this was a good idea?

Taebear
well I actually think it's nice
why did the rest of you also stay till last minute?
I fell asleep 15 minutes into the exam and somehow woke up less than half an hour before it was over so...

Joonie 
How do you fall asleep during an exam?

Taebear
I'll demonstrate next time we take another exam together

 

Private chat between gamerboy97 and HobiHobi

 

gamerboy97
hobi hyung
hobi hyung
hobi hyuuuunngg!!!!!

HobiHobi
Hey chill man what's up? what's wrong?

gamerboy97
Did you read what they're saying on the gc??????

HobiHobi
That Taebear fell asleep during the exam?

gamerboy97
Yes!!!
Kim Taehyung also fell asleep during that exam and I'm the one who threw a pen at him to wake him up half an hour before the exam was over
multiple pens actually
and look at his contact name!!!!
could it really be him?

HobiHobi
if it were him, would you finally woman up and talk to him?
plus he's asking why we were the last to leave the exam
are you gonna tell him you stayed that long because of him even though you were done halfway through?

gamerboy97
I did no such thing
you can prove nothing
ok see you in the gc byeeee

 

Nice Guys Finish Last group

 

chimchim
well I stay till last minute double-checking my answers

Joonie
great strategy

HobiHobi
nerds

gamerboy97
^ what he said

 

Private chat between gamerboy97 and HobiHobi

 

HobiHobi
Boy if you say 'what he said' one more time I'm going to bodyslam you

gamerboy97
sorry

 

Nice Guys Finish Last group

 

chimchim
Excuse you but it's called caring about your academics

Seokjinnie
sorry guys but I agree with HobiHobi and gamerboy97

Joonie
sold out your own boyfriend huh?

Taebear
ok but what kind of contact name is gamerboy97

gamerboy97 changed his name to jjk

Taebear
noooo
why'd you change it? I was kidding
I'm into gaming too

chimchim
big time.
I can concur
I suffer because of it

jjk changed his name to gamerboy97

HobiHobi
smooth

Seokjinnie
The nerds and the geeks gathered in one gc
Interesting...

chimchim
see?
I told you this was a good idea
so what kept you that long during the exam Seokjin hyung?

Seokjinnie
It was either stay in the exam hall or face my manager about cutting my own hair with kitchen scissors and posting it on social media
I went with the one that kept my ears intact for longer

HobiHobi
Wow ok what
Why would you cut your own hair with kitchen scissors and post it social media?

Suga
and why do you have a manager?

Seokjinnie
well to answer you both

Suga
..
I don't know what I'm supposed to be looking at
and wtf I thought you were joking about the cutting your own hair part

HobiHobi
Well I know what I'm looking at and it's the most beautiful man I ever laid eyes on
Drop your @

Joonie 
Stay in your lane

HobiHobi
Sorry
*appreciates beauty from afar*

Joonie
Besides you're literally texting him on his number
Why're you asking for his @

HobiHobi
Snooping purposes

Taebear
that Givenchy phonecase though
he rich rich

Seokjinnie
you're a walking gucci store so what the hell are you coming at me for
and thank you Mr HobiHobi
Indeed my nickname is Worldwide Handsome
- @kimseokjin

Taebear
you're literally the one who came up with that nickname

Joonie
doesn't make it untrue

Seokjinnie
one of the good things about dating a genius is feeling like all his words are facts set in stone
I'm worldwide handsome bitches

Suga
and what's the manager for?

Seokjinnie
why are you so caught up on this?
Haven't you figured it out though?
I'm an actor

HobiHobi
omg I just checked and you have like half a million followers on twitter

Seokjinnie
Oh I hit 500k?
I'll post a thank you selca later 

Suga
So you're famous?
I haven't seen you in anything

Seokjinnie
I'm not exactly famous
I haven't taken on a lead role or a well-known supporting role yet
But I am signed to an agency
They signed me because they thought I had potential and I've been with them ever since
a little over a year now

chimchim
he keeps getting bigger and bigger roles

Joonie
A slow but steady growth pays off best

Taebear
He also got asked to audition for a co-lead role
It's the perfect part for him
Fingers crossed Jin hyung

HobiHobi
I have tears in my eyes
You're so supportive of him
My own dad isn't this supportive of me

chimchim
what is it that you do?

HobiHobi
I'm a dancer

chimchim
omg you're kidding
I'm a dancer too!!!!!!

HobiHobi
which squad?

chimchim
The Cold Burn

HobiHobi
Juniors?

chimchim
yes!

HobiHobi
Seniors here

chimchim
you're in the seniors squad????
you've done the most amazing dance numbers I've seen my entire life
mine included

HobiHobi
Oh thank you so much
We work really hard

chimchim
yeah I heard your leader is kinda brutal
Everyone is so afraid of him

HobiHobi
Well good thing that's not an issue for me

chimchim
How come?

HobiHobi
I am the dance leader

chimchim
J-Jung Hoseok senpai?

HobiHobi
This is he

Taebear
Mr HobiHobi/Jung Hoseok senpai can you tell Jimin to stop hyperventilating?
it's been 15 minutes and I'm starting to get concerned

chimchim
can you blame me????
Jung Hoseok senpai is a legend!!!!
I can't believe I have Jung Hoseok senpai's number
please forgive me if I said anything out of line Jung Hoseok senpai

Suga
Can you please stop with the senpai thing already?
There's already geeks and there's nerds here
No need for weebs too

Seokjinnie
Jimin I am deeply hurt by what just happened
You did not react to me the way you reacted to Mr HobiHobi
Tae is my favorite delinquent now

chimchim
he's always been your favorite though
you're just using this as an excuse to be obvious about it

Seokjinnie
I will neither deny nor confirm

chimchim
Jung Hoseok senpai can I be your favorite delinquent please????

HobiHobi
I already have a favorite delinquent
@gamerboy97
He's a dancer too!

gamerboy97
Hi

Seokjinnie
You 2 know each other?

HobiHobi
Yeah we're good friends

chimchim
Imagine being so lucky that you get to be Jung Hoseok senpai's friend

Joonie
Wasn't there 45 people taking the exam today?

HobiHobi
Yeah

Joonie
What are the odds that it was the 7 of us and we all know at least one of the rest in this gc?

Suga
I don't know any of you though ?

Joonie
Let's make introductions then
I'll start

chimchim
send pics Namjoonie hyung ♥‿♥

Seokjinnie
Stay in your lane Park Jimin

chimchim

Seokjinnie
Park Jimin!

chimchim
WHAT??? I'M JUST SINGING
MAMMA MIA 
HERE I GO AGAIN
MY MY
HOW CAN I RESIST YA

Taebear
It's always fun discovering new lows in Jimin's life
This is definitely a low

HobiHobi
Wow ok eye c
I'm appreciating 2 beauties from afar now ok
What's your stand on polys?

chimchim
Jung Hoseok senpai we can make a club now that there's 2 of us namjin fans
we'd call it NAMJIN all caps
a-and maybe you can teach a move or 2 while we're there

HobiHobi
You can always ask if you want to join me on a dance practice
Maybe I'll do an assessment for you

chimchim
I have ascended and gone to heaven
nothing can ever top this moment for me

Suga
Hey Namjoon I think I've seen you around

Joonie
Oh are you a music major as well?

Suga
No not really
I spend a lot of time in your department's studios though

Joonie
A singer or an instrumentalist?

Suga
Mainly a producer

Joonie
Anything I know of?

Suga
Just a couple things here and there
I don't practice it for real though

Joonie
A hobby?

Suga
You could say that

chimchim
ok now to the other half of the couple of the year, Mr. Kim Seokjin
please send your intro

Seokjinnie
I already sent a picture

chimchim
with all the info this time please
I'm sure no one will be opposed to seeing your face again

HobiHobi
Yeah totally

Taebear
Mr. HobiHobi is to Namjoon hyung what Jimin is to Jin hyung and I'm living for it
But like
I totally get both sides

chimchim
See?
I'm not weird

Seokjinnie
Jimin you tried to sit on Namjoon's lap all throughout our movie night last week
I think that warrants you a yellow weird card

chimchim
he's got comfy thighs

Joonie
Ok Jimin thank you for your input
Seokjin hyung your intro please?

Seokjinnie
Kim Seokjin 25, postgrad film major

HobiHobi
I mean
I would very much love seeing this face on my TV 24/7

Joonie
That's my boyfriend ladies and gentlemen

HobiHobi
Ok we get it you're lucky

chimchim
ok we get it you're taken

Taebear
Worldwide handsome indeed

Seokjinnie
HA!
I knew it would catch on
Who's next?

HobiHobi
I'll do it
Let me find a good picture

Jung Hoseok 23, dance major

Taebear
IS THIS ALLOWED???
YOU WALK AROUND LOOKING LIKE THAT???

HobiHobi
Oh stop it (thank you)
I'm blushing
I hear you're quite the looker yourself

Taebear
Where'd you hear that from

 

Private chat between HobiHobi and gamerboy97

 

gamerboy97
Hobi hyung why did you say that????
Do you realize what you just said????
You weren't even supposed to know he's Kim Taehyung!!

HobiHobi
I'm sorry I'm sorry
He made me blush and my mind short-circuited for a moment there
I'll fix it

 

Nice Guys Finish Last group

 

HobiHobi
From a couple of people from my dance team
You're in the school play aren't you?
Kim Taehyung right?

chimchim
That's the one

Taebear
I haven't introduced myself yet though
How'd you figure out it was me?

HobiHobi
Yeah but
I saw your name when I was snooping around on Seokjin hyung's twitter
And I put 2 and 2 together

gamerboy97
Hahah lovely story Hobi hyung
How about I go next yeah? haha
I'm going next ok?

Seokjinnie
...
well that was an unexpected turn of events

gamerboy97
Jeon Jungkook 20, dance major

chimchim
you sent a plain black picture?

gamerboy97
No
I'm there
I'm in the picture

Joonie
I turned the brightness all the way up and I still could barely even make out your face

HobiHobi
*disappointed noises*

gamerboy97
It was just really dark in the car

Seokjinnie
Then send a picture that wasn't taken in a dark as hell car

gamerboy97
How about this?

Joonie
Well
At least this one's bright

HobiHobi
......
I'm disowning you

chimchim
can I be your favorite delinquent now Jung Hoseok senpai???
I'll send you all the selcas you want

Seokjinnie
Sounds inappropriate

Joonie
A true scavenger though

Taebear
Are you batman gamerboy97?
Is this what this is?

Suga
Why batman?

Taebear
He only shows the bottom half of his face

gamerboy97
I'm just a little shy ig...

chimchim
oh come on
you have nothing to be shy about
we're just a few (correct me if I'm wrong) broke college students and Seokjin hyung

Taebear
come on just one picture

gamerboy97

Taebear
...
Understandable
Have a day
Goodnight

 

Private chat between Taebear and chimchim

 

Taebear
Did you see what I just saw on the gc or was it a figment of my imagination

chimchim
it is very much real my friend
he's hot

Taebear
Hot is an understatement for him tbh
He's also very very cute
How do I tell him that I want to get married and adopt 8 dogs with him without sounding too desperate?

chimchim
i mean... you can try?
what was that reaction though
what if he takes your thirsty ass replies the wrong way?
he was already shy about it
say something else

Taebear
On it

 

Private chat between HobiHobi and gamerboy97

 

gamerboy97
Did you see what he said???
'understandable'
He means it's understandable that I'm shy right??
What else could it mean
He also said goodnight
It's only 8
Probably said to avoid talking to me any longer
I blew it
I knew I'd never have a chance with him but this is sorta kinda really extremely sad you know?
I've been crushing on him for months and the first time we even had a two-sided conversation I blew it
And that was supposed to be a good selca
I'll just leave the group and be sad on my own
I'll get over it eventually right?
I mean how many people must have been rejected by Kim Taehyung right?
Oh shit wait he sent a message on the gc

 

Nice Guys Finish Last group

 

Taebear
I have woken up
Not to be nsfw but you're very cute
10/10 would recommend

 

Private chat between HobiHobi and gamerboy97

 

gamerboy97
NEVERMIND
HE SAID I'M CUTE *:・゚✧ ✧゚・:*:・゚✧ ✧゚・:*:°✧ ✧゚・:

 

Nice Guys Finish Last group

 

Seokjinnie
I would like to adopt you into our little family of delinquents
You'll be delinquent 3
You shall fight for the position of being my fav
Taehyungie is currently at the top
But you're definitely higher than Park Jimin
Just don't flirt with my boyfriend and you'll keep this ranking

gamerboy97
Noted
Thank you

chimchim
hi Jungkook
I have a feeling I'll be seeing more of you in the future
just a feeling though
definitely not because of some frantic texts from a certain someone about how cute you are

gamerboy97
What

 

Private chat between Taebear and chimchim

 

Taebear
I'll get back at you
Just you wait

chimchim
I'd love to see you try

 

Nice Guys Finish Last group

 

Taebear
Nothing
He's just being weird
So who's turn is it next?

chimchim
How about you go for it

Taebear
Ok sure
But don't expect much

Joonie
I hate it when beautiful people start acting like they're don't know how beautiful they really are
Quit it Taehyungie
We all know you're a handsome boy

chimchim
I don't think a bad selca of you even exists
bless our eyes baby

Taebear
No I meant don't expect much because I'm in a car and it'll probably come out lq so...
But thanks for the compliments
Warmed my heart
Here you go

Kim Taehyung 22, arts major

gamerboy97
Oh.

HobiHobi
Oh indeed
Why are you studying art if you're art yourself

Suga
That was...
very smooth

chimchim
my handsome baby
can your soulmates ever?
no? didn't think so
only my soulmate

Seokjinnie
Don't fall for this
He may look like he's better looking than me but it's an illusion

HobiHobi
ooff I just had a vision
0 offense to anyone here but imagine how powerful a taejin selca would be

Joonie
You're probably right
But this is how they choose to take their selcas

gamerboy97
Still beautiful

Taebear
What

HobiHobi
What 

gamerboy97
Wait what no
I meant the friendship between you
It's beautiful
I love friendships
You can be comfortable being ugly together because friendship yes
Phenomenal

Taebear
So what you're saying is we're ugly now?

gamerboy97
NO
I didn't mean it like that
You could never be ugly
I meant like you can be goofy and be weird

HobiHobi
I think you'll regret it if you don't stop talking now Jungkookie

Suga
No let him speak
I'm enjoying this

chimchim
there's something called karma you know

Suga
And what's gonna happen?
I certainly won't get flustered because of any of you so..
I think I'm in the safe

[Cont.]

Taebear
Jiminie be polite to Mr Suga
He scares me a little

Joonie
Is it just me or is the name Suga a little familiar

Suga
It is?

Joonie
Yeah
It feels like I've seen it before but I can't put my finger on where exactly was that

HobiHobi
What does it mean? Does it stand for something?

Suga
It's
An alias
..if you will

Taebear
...
Shady

chimchim
can we run a background check on him when he sends us his name and picture?
completely unrelated but Mr Suga can you please send us your intro?

gamerboy97
Sly

chimchim
look who's talking
no seriously look who's talking
I'm proud of you gamerboy97
You shouldn't be shy around us

gamerboy97
You can just call me Jungkook

chimchim
ok Jungkookie
you're the youngest aren't you?
unless Mr scary shady Suga is younger than 20
Seokjin hyung is the oldest

Seokjinnie
Jungkook and I aren't too far apart
I'm still young and hip too

Joonie
Of course you are honey

Seokjinnie
Why does this not feel reassuring

Taebear
Maybe it's because deepdown you know it's bullshit

Seokjinnie
Jungkook rejoice
You're my fav now
Taehyung is dead to me

gamerboy97
I don't want to impose
Taehyung hyung can keep it

Taebear
Taehyung hyung?

gamerboy97
y-yeah
If it's okay I call you that

Taebear
Yeah totally
It's just I've always been the youngest
No one ever calls me hyung
It's nice

gamerboy97
Ok then Taehyung hyung.

Seokjinnie
...
That was so vanilla
You almost ruined the word for me

HobiHobi
I feel like this last message has a lot of hidden meanings to it
But I don't think we're close enough for that talk yet

Seokjinnie
Good call

gamerboy97
I don't get it

chimchim
I'm choosing not to get it
moving on!
Mr scary shady Suga
your intro please
or I will keep on calling you Mr scary shady Suga

Suga
I really don't know why I haven't left this gc yet
But here

Min Yoongi 24, economy major

Seokjinnie
Look it's a cat

Suga
That's it I'm leaving

Taebear
Mr HobiHobi what did you do?????
Jimin started hyperventilating again
Please make him stop

HobiHobi
What?
I didn't do anything I swear
Is he okay???

chimchim
It's okay It's okay
I'm okay
It's not because of you Jung Hoseok senpai
I was just overwhelmed

HobiHobi
By what?

chimchim
beauty

Taebear
Oh?

chimchim
thank you for sending a picture of your glorious self Mr scary shady Suga
I have ascended and gone to heaven
Nothing can top this moment for me

Seokjinnie
Can someone get the screenshot of this chat a while ago when he said the same exact thing?

chimchim
that was premature
I think I also learned a new trick for Tinder!
we should say that we're looking for scary shady people in our profiles
that way the ones you match with come up looking like Mr scary shady Suga
and god knows I'd be his most thankful of servants

Taebear
Don't bring god into this

Joonie
Hey I know you!

chimchim
I'm sorry Namjoonie hyung I've replaced you as the one true man in my life
I hope we can still be friends

Joonie
No not you Jimin
I meant Yoongi hyung
I saw you with that exchange student a lot during the time our university and theirs were working on the collab between our music programs
I remember because I wanted to be on her good side too and you were so close with her already
The song they came up with for the collab was incredible though

chimchim
wait Mr scary shady Suga is taken? (ಥ﹏ಥ)

Suga
You know my name now
can't you just use it instead?

chimchim
only if you answer the question

Suga
I don't like talking about personal stuff

chimchim
ok
I respect that

Seokjinnie
Those introductions really came in handy though
Park Jimin finally backed off my man
Come on Jiminie
You're the only one left

Taebear
Always save the best for last

chimchim

Park Jimin 22, dance major

HobiHobi
This is literally the cutest thing I've ever seen

Taebear
Don't let this fool you
This is him on stage

HobiHobi
I remember that performance!!
Contemporary right?
It was wonderful

chimchim
yes yes!!
you really liked it Jung Hoseok senpai???

HobiHobi
Yeah you all did great

chimchim
Omg!!!!
I have ascended and gone to heaven
nothing can top this moment for me

Seokjinnie
Jimin; as original as ever

Suga
Yeah so anyways Namjoon I was telling you
That exchange girl and I spent some time together talking about music and stuff
Her boyfriend is pretty cool too
A guitarist
Tried to set me up with one of their friends
Didn't work out though so I guess I've just been single for a while now

Joonie
...
Thank you for telling me ig

Taebear
You definitely were not in the safe Yoongi hyung

Seokjinnie
Turn on your TVs to MBC at 7 and wait for the appearance of a certain handsome Dr. Hanjae Lee

chimchim
It's airing already??

Taebear
Yes!!
Can't wait to see Jin hyung in a white coat and a stethoscope

Joonie
Is this like a fantasy of yours?

Taebear
Totally

Joonie
lol same

chimchim
ooohh Namjoonie hyung
I didn't know you were into that sorta thing
I can go buy my own white coat and stethoscope if that's what it takes

Seokjinnie
I'm not even gonna say anything at this point

Taebear
Dry spell I tell ya

chimchim
I'M NOT GOING THROUGH A DRY SPELL
I'm just wondering by myself if I'll ever find a love like the one between Seokjin hyung and Namjoonie hyung
it's fun

Taebear
...
Good thing the dry spell thing is totally untrue
But I'm sure you will chim

chimchim
you'd still marry me if I still weren't married at 29 right?
We made a pact

Seokjinnie
But ??? you 2 are ??? already ??? married ???

chimchim
Not in the literal form of things no

Taebear
Ok but what if I was in a relationship by then?

chimchim
drop them
it's their fault for being in a relationship with you when we've made a pact 15 years ago to get married
whoever you're with you just have to drop them
it's in the soulmate rule book
I totally did not make this up

HobiHobi
I'm so confused right now

Suga
I keep trying to make sense of things but...
Who's dating who again?

gamerboy97
?

chimchim
I'm totally single if it's for you Mr scary shady Suga

Taebear
You're totally single either way

chimchim
you didn't have to come for me like this

Taebear
Let me break it down for you newbies
Namjoon hyung and Jin hyung are together
They're our parents but
Jimin has a metaphorical crush on Namjoon hyung since namjin started going out
On the other hand Jin hyung has a piece of my heart since high school days
Jimin though has my whole heart
We've been friends since middle school
We're also roommates now

chimchim
You forgot to add soulmates too

Joonie
Soulmates fits you best imo

Taebear
Yeah so that makes me and Jimin single

Suga
What tf is a metaphorical crush

HobiHobi
This is what you got out of it?
Also how do you say 'we're soulmates' then follow it by 'we're single'?
This is honestly more complicated than the bachelor

Seokjinnie
Try living it

gamerboy97
You're soulmates?

Taebear
Platonic soulmates
Best friends

gamerboy97
Oh
Platonic is a nice word

Taebear
Depends on the context yeah?

gamerboy97
I kinda like this context

Taebear
That's...
good to know

HobiHobj
:')

Suga
Metaphorical crush?

chimchim
it means I don't actually have romantic feelings for him
but he's my man crush monday everyday

Suga
Uhuh

Taebear
Well what about you guys?
Anyone taken?

HobiHobi
I'm single for sure
But you know who's really single?
Jungkook
He's so single
Would probably be a great boyfriend though
I'll send in his resume

gamerboy97
HYUNG

Taebear
Did he say something untrue?

gamerboy97
Well no...

Taebear
Good
I don't know how you're still single
But it's still good to know

gamerboy97
Good?

Taehyung
Definitely good

HobiHobi
You can't see this but Jungkook is tomato red right now
When yotshndjejenxuebxbmsieuxxeiemnern

Seokjinnie
...
He dead

chimchim
Died a hero

gamerboy97
No no he's alright
Just slipped

HobiHobi
I'm saying this with free will and absolutely  no pressure from anyone: Jungkook is a normal shade of human skin color
He did not turn red at all
and I indeed slipped
but I'm completely fine now

Joonie
...
Should we send help?

chimchim
Guys guys guys!!!
it's starting it's starting it's starting it's starting
JIN HYUNG IS ON TV
not the first time but exciting every time
everyone set?

HobiHobi
Jungkook and the functional half of my body are!

Taebear
I definitely am

Seokjinnie
Joon got me a bouquet :')

chimchim
LITERAL GOALS

HobiHobi
Wow you're seriously talented
Jungkook says you're really handsome too

gamerboy97
You didn't have to tell him that!

Seokjinnie
It's fine Jungkook
A lot of people feel that way
Thanks though

Taebear
Seriously look at this face

You're so good Jin hyung
You really fit the role

chimchim
His biggest one yet and he's killing it :')

HobiHobi
Wow that was over so fast
Time went by so fast

gamerboy97
I don't understand much about acting but it didn't feel like you were acting at all
That's how I knew it's good

chimchim
Send bts pics!!!

Joonie
what's bts pics?

chimchim
behind the scenes pics
what else could it be

Joonie
Yeah...
and Jin hyung I told you all I wanted to tell you in person
no need to say it on here again

chimchim
but I wanna knooowww

Seokjinnie
Another yellow weird card Jimin
Seriously though thank you all for your words
They're kinder than I deserve

Taebear
Hey I forgot to add earlier
Jin hyung is the closest thing I have to an older brother
Whatever accomplishment he feels, I feel it too
I'm so happy for you Jin hyung

Seokjinnie
Stop it you idiot
They're gonna think we feel sentiment

Joonie
You're literally weeping next to me

HobiHobi
I'm really glad this gc was made
It's nice knowing you all

Joonie
You just made him cry harder

HobiHobi
Sorry

HobiHobi
Hey does anyone know a good croissant place?
I'm craving them really bad

Taebear
It's 6 in the morning hyung get your fancy ass back to bed

HobiHobi
You sleep till this late?

Taebear
You don't?!

HobiHobi
I like to maintain a healthy lifestyle
You should try it too

Taebear
I'm putting my phone on silent now and going back to bed goodnight

HobiHobi
Tf you mean goodnight?!

gamerboy97
Good morning

Taebear
Good morning lovely
How are you feeling on this fine morning?

HobiHobi
I thought you were putting your phone on silent and going back to bed

Taebear
I'm suddenly wide awake

HobiHobi
Eye c

gamerboy97
I'm good hyung how are you?
Why are you up this early?

Taebear
Hobi hyung's notification woke me up

gamerboy97
Light sleeper?

Taebear
No not really
Happenstance i guess

HobiHobi
You called me Hobi hyung instead of Mr HobiHobi
Is this how it feels when your child says their first word?

Taebear
Why are you child-zoning me at ass o'clock in the morning

Seokjinnie
I have a better question
Why are you blowing up my phone at ass o'clock in the morning

Taebear
Hobi hyung is asking about a good croissant place

Seokjinnie
Oh a serious matter I see

HobiHobi
That's what I said!

Taebear
Wait how are croissants a part of your healthy lifestyle

HobiHobi
You have to indulge in treats every now and then

Taebear
Oh I do that too

Seokjinnie
But he does it everyday
The boy lives on burgers and ramen

Taebear
Not all of us can afford steak for dinner everyday hyung

gamerboy97
I like ramen and burgers too

Taebear
Oh really? Hmmm
Maybe we should go grab some burgers together sometime

gamerboy97
Qxnsnkeduendux ejdne
Sorry I dropped my phone
Sure hyung that would be nice

HobiHobi
HAHAHAHAHAHA
Ok but Taehyung I have to warn you
Don't let the bunnychild fool you
He may eat his weight in food
But his abs are no joke

Taehyung
a-abs?

HobiHobi
A complete 6 pack
Want me to provide you with visual proof?

gamerboy97
HYUNG NO

HobiHobi
You lifted your shirt in front of the entire school last dance competition
Why are you acting all shy now

gamerboy97
It's different

Taebear
How is it different?

Seokjinnie
It's kinda unfair for the whole school to see it but not Taehyungie
Isn't it Mr HobiHobi?

HobiHobi
I agree
Just one picture
One angle

Taebear
T-There's more than one angle?

HobiHobi
Oh yeah
There's several.

Seokjinnie
Come on Jungkookie
Just one picture

gamerboy97
No

Taebear
It's for scientific purposes
Please?

gamerboy97
...
Ugh ok
Just one picture Hobi hyung or you'll find yourself in a similar position as yesterday

Seokjinnie
Kinky

gamerboy97
No..

Taebear
You'll get used to the jokes Jungkookie

gamerboy97
OJO
You're calling me Jungkookie?

Taebear
It's either that or gamerboy
Your choice
Maybe more options to come

gamerboy97
Jungkookie is fine

Seokjinnie
I literally called you Jungkookie since day 1
Why didn't I get this puppy reaction

HobiHobi
Don't embarrass him Jin hyung

Seokjinnie
I'm doing the public a service

gamerboy97
I'm part of the public too

HobiHobi
Yeah but no one cares about that
Ok the moment you've been waiting for
Brace yourselves
Drumroll please

gamerboy97
I hate this
I'm leaving and not coming back until this is over

HobiHobi 

Ta-daaaaa

Taebear
Oh...

HobiHobi
Waking up early isn't so bad huh?

Taebear
Absolutely not

chimchim
Wtf
I open my phone and the first thing I see is a shirtless man
I thought I opened a porn site in my sleep again

HobiHobi
How do you even do that

Taebear
Dry spell~~~~

chimchim
Brave of you to come for me when your scream over this picture is what woke me up in the first place

Taebear
Ok but can you blame me?

Seokjinnie
Enough thirst for the day

Taebear
It's only 6:43
Jimin hasn't even opened both eyes yet
And you know the thirst doesn't start until Jimin is up snd fully functioning

chimchim
Give me a couple hours
Maybe Mr scary shady Suga will be awake by then

Seokjinnie
You 2 are insufferable

HobiHobi
Tbh they're growing on me

Seokjinnie
Wait until you meet them
It's like they get everyone in a constant state of thirdwheeling

HobiHobi
Sounds fun

Seokjinnie
Good luck to whoever they'll date in the future
It's like getting a 2 for 1 deal of annoying

chimchim
Good luck to @gamerboy97 then

Taebear
Was this necessary?

chimchim
Probably not
Was it true though is the question

Taebear
He doesn't seem all that interested

HobiHobi
HAHAHAHAHAHAHA
Tae you're delirious
Better go back to bed

Taebear
Yeah I'll do that
No one to stay here any longer for

HobiHobi
Rude

Seokjinnie
It's better this way

Taebear
Ok then goodnight!!

HobiHobi
Again tf you mean goodnight?!

Nice Guys Finish Last group

 

Taebear
Hey guys
The chemistry exam grades are up
I haven't looked at mine yet though

Joonie
Why not

Taebear
I'm in class

Joonie
Then get off your phone and pay attention in said class ??

Taebear
Hyung the professor is so boring
He never says anything worthwhile

gamerboy97
Ikr
The only thing Prof. Lee is good at is talking about himself

Taebear
Um Jungkook..
Why do you know Prof. Lee and how'd you know his class is the one I'm in rn?
Wait don't say it...
We're in the same class together???
Why didn't you say anything????

gamerboy97
Um
Sorry

chimchim
You're in the same class?? That's so exciting
I'm so excited

Joonie
Why do you get to be excited?

chimchim
Content!

Seokjinnie
Content!

chimchim
Did we just send the same message at the same time?

Seokjinnie
I gave up on logic a long time ago

Joonie
You're both just nosey and bored

HobiHobi
I almost got kicked out of class because my phone won't stop vibrating at the top of my desk

Seokjinnie
Put it on silent then

Taebear
Or keep it somewhere other than on your desk ?

HobiHobi
Not before I tell you off for it
Jungkook why the hell are you spamming my phone with panic messages???

chimchim
Scroll up

HobiHobi
Oh... Haha oops?

gamerboy97
They're NOT panic messages hyung
There's nothing to panic about
I'm asking you what flavor Gatorade you want??? I'm at the store

Taebear
I thought you were in class?
I was looking around for you

gamerboy97
Oh... I left

Taebear
Why'd you leave?
I wanted to say hi

gamerboy97
YES HI HELLO HEY HYUNG
I REALLY HAD TO GO

Taebear
To buy Gatorade?

Seokjinnie
Not the best cure for gay panic

gamerboy97
I'M NOT PANICKING

 

Private chat between HobiHobi and gamerboy97

 

gamerboy97
HYUNG I WAS TOTALLY PANICKING
I CANNOT FACE HIM LIKE THIS
I guess I just have to skip that class for the rest of the semester
It's not like Prof. Lee actually teaches anything useful
I'll be fine
People get homeschooled all the time
Studies show that homeschooled kids have a greater chance at success and happiness and avoiding Kim Taehyung than regularly schooled children

HobiHobi
Well you got one thing right out of all you just gibbered 
You're children

gamerboy97
...what?

HobiHobi
You're acting like a child
Why'd you run away when you could've had your first actual conversation with him
You've wanted this for so long

gamerboy97
And have him know we've been in the same class for about 4 months now and he hasn't really noticed me?
Then maybe have him find out I've had a crush on him since the first class when he came in late with messy hair and a baggy sweater so Prof. Lee had him read the syllabus for the other students as a punishment?
Tempting but I think I'll pass

HobiHobi
You have to face him sooner or later

gamerboy97
No I don't
He'll go on with his life not knowing I exist and I'll get over it eventually

HobiHobi
He literally asked you out on burgers yesterday

gamerboy97
It was 6 in the morning
He probably doesn't even remember saying that

 

Nice Guys Finish Last group

 

Taebear
It's fine Jungkookie
I'll say hi next week after class?
Then we can go grab those burgers we talked about

 

Private chat between HobiHobi and gamerboy97

 

HobiHobi
HAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHAHAHA

gamerboy97
I'm glad you find this amusing
I'm dying inside

 

Nice Guys Finish Last group

 

gamerboy97
Sounds great

chimchim
I'm coming along

Seokjinnie
I'm coming along
Did we just say the same thing again?

chimchim
You're my soul twin

Joonie
Again: you're both just nosey and bored
And you're not going anywhere near them

chimchim
Ooff love me some assertive man

Seokjinnie
Aah love me some assertive man
Ok this is just ridiculous

Suga
And extremely creepy

chimchim
Oh hi scary shady hyung
I was just wondering where you were

Suga
Hi

chimchim
Would you like to join us on our 'finding taekook' mission

Seokjinnie
Original name

chimchim
I know
How come no one thought about using that before?
My mind

Joonie
I can't tell if you're being serious or not

Suga
Thanks for the offer Jimin but no thanks
I would rather our first time meeting to be... dissimilar than following someone around

chimchim
...
Wow I did not see this coming at all
My moment has finally come
I'm getting my carriage ready
We're doing this 1800s courtship style!

Taebear
Is it because you haven't been on a date since the 1800s?
Dry spell~~~

chimchim
YOUR WORDS CAN'T TEAR ME DOWN
I'M THRIVING 

Suga
Cute

chimchim
W-What

Suga
My class is starting now
Bye

chimchim
BYE HYUNG
SEE YOU SOON WHEN WE AREN'T FOLLOWING TAEKOOK

gamerboy97
What's a taekook?

chimchim
This line has to be said every time huh?

Taebear
Just to be clear no one is following anyone anywhere right?

Seokjinnie
Psshhh course not

Taebear
This is more unsettling than anything

Seokjinnie
Go leave
Pay attention in class delinquent

Taebear
Ok hyung love you too

chimchim
Hyung we have to start plotting

Seokjinnie
Way ahead of you

HobiHobi
Ok but the chemistry exam results

Seokjinnie
Taekook are more important

chimchim
Taekook are more important

Seokjinnie
JIMIN

chimchim
SEOKJIN HYUNG

HobiHobi
HEY GUYS
Guess what

Taebear
OMG WHAT

HobiHobi
Don't sound more excited than I am
Wait till after I tell you the news

Taebear
Sorry

HobiHobi
OK SO GUESS WHAT

chimchim
WHAT IS IT JUNG HOSEOK SENPAI

HobiHobi
I just ran into a celebrity
One of the best encounters of my life

chimchim
WHO

Taebear
Looked in the mirror?

HobiHobi
Tae you just made my heart flutter

chimchim
Don't tell Jungkook

HobiHobi
Oh he won't know
He's currently preoccupied at the gym

chimchim
That's such a pro infidelity response senpai

Taebear
G-Gym?
He also goes to the gym?

HobiHobi
Yeah like 3-4 times a week
How'd you think he got all that muscle mass

Taebear
Ok Hobi hyung thank you for this valuable piece of information
Much to think about
Much to think about
Much to think aboouutt

chimchim
What is it exactly that you'll be thinking about taetae?

Taebear
You know
Just 
How he'll inspire me to start working out too

chimchim
Aah
The lies I smell

Seokjinnie
FOR GOODNESS SAKE TAEHYUNG WE GET IT HE'S YOUR TYPE
NOW CAN YOU GUESS WHO THE CELEBRITY IS ALREADY

chimchim
Jeez who pissed in your cereal

Seokjinnie
You know what
You don't deserve dramatics
Here just look

Taebear
Omg Jin hyung
Hobi hyung
You 2 are together??

chimchim
Wait a minute
You said you 'ran into each other' but here you are in restaurant having lunch together huh...
Where's Namjoonie hyung Seokjin hyung?
I see Jung Hoseok senpai's infidel's mindset has expanded onto Namjin too
Not Namjin senpai
Take Taekook but not Namjin

Seokjinnie
You talk as if you don't flirt with my boyfriend every chance you get Jimin

chimchim
I don't know what you're talking about

Taebear
I want to meet Hobi hyung too :(

chimchim
Me too!!
Are you still there?
Can we join??

Taebear
Pleeeaaasseee

HobiHobi
Yeah we're still there
We're at the restaurant just outside the Med building
It honestly serves the best food

Taebear
What were you doing on campus on a Saturday
I'd skip weekdays if I had the chance
Let alone weekends

HobiHobi
I was practicing a little in the dance studio
It's the most convenient to me here

chimchim
Senpai you're so cool practicing during the weekend

Taebear
You do it all the time Jiminie
I've never see anyone who works as hard as you do
Seriously Hobi hyung you'll be blown away by him when you see him dance solo

chimchim
Oh senpai I get what you mean when you said he makes your heart flutter

Seokjinnie
Try it on me too

Taebear
I can't use it on you hyung
I'd look at you and I'll be one whose heart is fluttering

Seokjinnie
Oh wow
You're good
They're so cheesy that it work

chimchim
Hey can you use one on Jungkook?
I want to see his reaction

HobiHobi
You just have to say hi to Jungkook and his heart will be fluttering

chimchim
Ooff his dry spell is worse than mine

Taebear
SO YOU ADMIT TO HAVING A DRY SPELL
But why do you say that Hobi hyung?

HobiHobi
Trust me it has nothing to do with a dry spell
He's very well-supplied with compliments
It's just that you have your ways Tae you know that

Taebear
NO I DON'T KNOW THAT HOBI HYUNG WHAT DOES THAT MEAN

chimchim
No breaking of the bro code senpai!

Taebear
You know what
I'll find out myself

chimchim
And how do you plan on doing that?

Taebear
By using the best pickup lines known to man on him
Just you wait

HobiHobi
Oh no... the bunny will break

Seokjinnie
Idiots enough with evil plans and come over already

Taebear
We're on our way~~~

chimchim
Making my way downtown
Walking fast

Taebear
Faces pass and I'm homeboud

chimchim
Todotodo todotodo

Taebear
Hey btw where are the others
Maybe they can join as well
Make this our first official meeting
We'll make a detour to the gym to fetch Jungkook and maybe sneak a peak or two before doing that

chimchim
Enough you creepy stalker

Taebear
I meant with consent!

Seokjinnie
I'm sure that'll make you ecstatic Tae but Namjoon is at the studio and Yoongi is busy with a couple of stuff atm

chimchim
Wait
How do you know what 'Yoongi' is busy or not busy with hyung?

Seokjinnie
I'm not saying another word until you come here

chimchim
We told you we're on our way!

Taebear
Todotodo todotodo

Nice Guys Finish Last group

 

chimchim

This has been best day of my life
Nothing would've made it better

Suga
Nothing?

chimchim
O-Oh hello yoongi hyung
I mean... There must be something
Have to try it though before I judge

Suga
So it's yoongi hyung now
What happened to Mr scary shady Suga and scary shady hyung?

chimchim
Hoseokie hyung had me in a headlock until I agreed on not calling him Jung Hoseok senpai anymore after I did it a liiittle too many times
Then he gave me a little kiss on the head and the deal was done
But I'm scarred now and will call all of you by your names to avoid future trauma

Suga
I see

Joonie
So I take it you had fun?
Wasn't it even a little awkward?

Seokjinnie
Well not for me but I'm sure Mr HobiHobi was a little uncomfortable by Jimin calling him senpai for the first half an hour thus the headlock
But was also probably uncomfortable by Tae asking him questions about whether Jungkook ever mentioned him before this gc was created because he already knew him from class
And tbh I was a little annoyed by Jimin's invasive questions about one small thing I said about Yoongi
But other than that, great company!

Joonie
...
Sounds fun

Suga
What about you Seokjin hyung?

Seokjinnie
What about me?

Suga 
Did you call Hoseok Mr HobiHobi the entire time?

Seokjinnie
No of course not
That would be a bit outlandish
I called him Seokie instead

Suga
Uhm
Yeah that's better...

Taebear
I have come to a decision that Hobi hyung is the best hyung
He even treated us to dinner

Seokjinnie
I treat you all the time delinquent
Why is Mr HobiHobi the best and not me

Taebear
Well he didn't make a show out of it and made us say 'thank you so much hyungnim' 3 times like you always do
+he gave us kisses on the head AND doesn't call delinquents as a form of endearment
+he called us cute when you said we were disgusting

Seokjinnie
I stand by what I said



This is disgusting

HobiHobi
Disgustingly cute*
But I totally get what you said about the constant state of third wheeling

chimchim
Hyung you say we are disgusting then proceed to take 18 pictures of us being that way
Just say you're soft for us and go

Seokjinnie
I'm not

Joonie
You totally are

Seokjinnie
Oh you're siding with them against me, boyfriend?
Hope the couch doesn't hurt your back too much when you sleep on it tonight

Joonie
Noooo baby
Of course you aren't whipped for them
You don't tear up over how cute they are when you watch them together sometimes
Or suggest we make them a collage of their pictures through the years as a birthday gift and give it to them in November because it's the month between their birthdays
And when I asked you who would get to keep it if they ever have a fallout
You laughed and said it's more likely for Earth to crack in half than for Taehyung and Jimin not being friends anymore
You did absolutely none of that

Taebear
Wha--

chimchim
I cannot believe this

Suga
Wow that's... incredibly sweet
I can't blame them for not knowing what to say after that
Must've really moved them

HobiHobi
I'm sobbing

Taebear
Namjoon hyung
You--

chimchim
You really

Taebear
It's just that...

HobiHobi
What is it guys???
Just let it out

chimchim
NAMJOON HYUNG YOU REALLY CALLED SEOKJIN HYUNG BABY?

Taebear
YEAH WHERE THE HELL DID THAT COME FROM

...
Uh guys it's been 10 minutes
I can see you're reading these
Why aren't you replying?
Why aren't they replying?

chimchim
I have no idea
They're kinda strange

Taebear
Agreed
I can't believe Namjoon hyung calls Seokjin hyung baby
And remember what Seokjin hyung once said something about how Jungkook and I ruined the word hyung for him
Are you catching my drift?

chimchim
TAE THOSE ARE OUR PARENTS

Taebear
I'M JUST SAYING

gamerboy97
Hey guys what are you talking about?

Taebear
Just how Namjoon hyung calls Seokjin hyung baby

gamerboy97
Um
That's
Random?

Taebear
Is it?
Hey Jungkook
How would you feel about being called baby?

chimchim
...
It has begun
Hobi hyung you don't want to miss this

HobiHobi
Trust me I won't

Seokjinnie

Joonir

Suga
×4

gamerboy97
Qué?
Soy no comprendo hermano mayor

HobiHobi
Um
He took a spanish course first semester
...
And he didn't do all that well at it

Taebear
It's just a question Jungkookie
Say we took Namjin's place
Would it make your heart flutter if I call you baby?

gamerboy97
What? No? R u fr? No? No. No!
NO IT WON'T
NO LO HARÁ
ESTOY SEGURO DE QUE NO

Taebear
...
Are you sure?
You sound a bit...conflicted

gamerboy97

It won't.

Taebear
See Hobi hyung?
Told you
Not that interested

gamerboy97
What

Taebear
Nothing Jungkookie
Still on for Friday right?

gamerboy97
S-Sí
I mean yeah
If you are

Taebear
Ok cutie
See ya

Suga
Uh
Is it just me or did that feel a little sad?

chimchim
No I felt it too

It would more likely stop it all together

Private chat between HobiHobi and gamerboy97

 

[Cont.] 

HobiHobi
You idiot

gamerboy97
What
I thought I handled myself pretty well

HobiHobi
In what world is that 'well'?
Do I need to remind you about the Spanish Juankook?

gamerboy97
Really hyung? You're back with the Juankook thing? I thought we left that behind when I stopped practicing speaking Spanish around you
It was never funny
Idk how but it just came out ok? I think Spanish is like my defense mechanism idk
And I'd like to see how you'd handle yourself if your crush talks to you like that

HobiHobi
But I already talk to Jin hyung fine

gamerboy97
What

HobiHobi
What

gamerboy97
What

HobiHobi
Idiot I'm kidding
But has it crossed your mind that maybe Taehyung was trying to get somewhere with you and you just rejected him?

gamerboy97
Hahahaha 
The Jin hyung joke was better

HobiHobi
I'm not joking Jungkook

gamerboy97
YOU SERIOUSLY HAVE A CRUSH ON JIN HYUNG?

HobiHobi
no you idiot
the other thing
the Taehyung thing

gamerboy97
As if Kim Taehyung would think of me that way
He doesn't even know me other than from the 8 words we've exchanged over text in the gc and I was panicking during 7 of them

HobiHobi
Ok first of all can you get rid of the 'Kim Taehyung' thing you got going?
He's Taehyung
Just Taehyung
Why are you acting like he's so out of your league?

gamerboy97
Uuuhhh ??? Cz he is ????
He's out of everyone's league
Have you seen him?

HobiHobi
ok you have a point but I met him he's just a very very sweet little boy like you
A little too handsome yes but it's not like you lack in that department as well

gamerboy97
WAIT A SECOND YOU MET HIM???
WHEN??

HobiHobi
This afternoon
Scroll up on the group
You'll find a picture of us together
I took a picture with your crush before you did lol

gamerboy97
He looks good
You met Jin hyung and Jimin hyung too
Where was I?

HobiHobi
There's 4 people in the picture but you only mention him ok cool cool cool
And you were at the gym jungkie so that's your fault

gamerboy97
Oh that's right...
My own maintenance of a muscular body sabotaging me like that

HobiHobi
...
That is the ugliest sentence I've ever read
Please don't say anything like that ever again

gamerboy97
Why are you meaner than usual :(

HobiHobi
Jin hyung rubbed off a little on me

gamerboy97
How were they like?
And what is up with Taehyung hyung and Jimin hyung
They look so... In love

HobiHobi
Oh they totally are
It's precious

gamerboy97
Um..
I don't know what to make of that

HobiHobi
Nothing to worry about

gamerboy97
You mean one less thing to worry about
There's a lot to worry about

HobiHobi
I'm sure you'll see how unreasonable you're being when you meet him
I know you've gushed about this to me before but he's seriously so friendly

gamerboy97
Yeah I've seen how he interacts with others in class

HobiHobi
You're gonna love him Jungkookie
No wait that makes things worse in your situation
You're gonna be comfortable around him

gamerboy97
Easier said than done
I'm like 30% excited, 70% nervous

HobiHobi
Good enough

 

Private chat between HobiHobi and Taebear

 

HobiHobi
Hey Taehyungie

Taebear
Omg Hobi hyung talking to me on private
To what do I owe this pleasure?
This is a tacky line but I mean it

HobiHobi
I just wanna tell you that you shouldn't stop at what you said tonight
Make the bunny suffer more

Taebear
What gave you the idea that I'm stopping?
It only goes up from here hyungie
I've declared war of flirting on Jeon Jungkook

HobiHobi
Not the best name (not even close) but great attitude

Taebear
I couldn't come up with anything else
Do you have any suggestions?

HobiHobi
The idiot and the flirt
Don Juan and Juankook
Wait why are we choosing a name?

Taebear
Idk for future reference maybe

HobiHobi
None sound too promising
But wait pt. 2
Why are you carrying on with the whole thing if you don't think he's interested in you

Taebear
It's fun

HobiHobi
That's it?

Taebear
Yeah

HobiHobi
I'm not buying it

Taebear
With good reason but let's leave it at that
What about you?
Why don't you want me to stop?

HobiHobi
Tryna teach him a lesson

Taebear
A lesson in what?

HobiHobi
Boldness
Candidness
Going after what he wants

Taebear
And how will I be any help in that?

HobiHobi
You have your ways

Taebear
YOU KEEP SAYING THAT AND I DON'T KNOW WHAT IT MEANS

HobiHobi
No breaking of the bro code -Park Jimin

Taebear
I'll figure it out
War of flirting is commencing as of this second.

HobiHobi
Let's not use that name often yeah?

Taebear
Yeah I see where you're coming from
Wish me luck

HobiHobi
May the odds be ever in your favor

Taebear
Avada Kedavra

HobiHobi
...
Wrong book reference
Wrong quote
Wrong--
You know what?
Good luck Tae

chimchim
Something is being plotted behind my back
I can feel it
My soulmate senses are tingling
TAE

Taebear
Hey my soul-spidey chimchim

chimchim
Awwww that's cute
HEY DON'T USE CUTENESS TO DERAIL MY SOULMATE SENSES

Seokjinnie
For goodness sake it's midnight delinquents
Go to bed

chimchim
But tomorrow's Sunday

Seokjinnie
So?
It's not like you have a life therefore have things to do on Saturday night
You're probably both in bed right now

chimchim
...no

Joonie
I FIGURED IT OUT

Taebear
Jfc what is it

Seokjinnie
He's been searching for something on his laptop for hours
I didn't get any Namjoon time for myself :(

Taebear
Please don't

chimchim
What is Namjoon time like Seokjin hyung? (❍ᴥ❍)
For those who can't experience it

Taebear
I THOUGHT THESE ARE OUR PARENTS JIMIN
THE DRY SPELL HAS GONE TOO FAR

chimchim
THERE IS NO DRY SPELL

Seokjinnie
...
This warrants another yellow weird card Jimin

Taebear
Isn't it time for a red one?

Suga
Please say it's time for a red one

HobiHobi
What happens when he gets a red one?

Seokjinnie
I'll keep that a secret until it's time
But all I can say is beware Park Jimin

chimchim
All bark no bite

Seokjinnie
We'll see about that

Taebear
But I wanna know what Namjoon hyung figured out
@Joonie

Joonie
I figured out where I've seen the name Suga before
I knew it was familiar but I just didn't guess...
Why didn't you tell us earlier Yoongi hyung???

Seokjinnie
Namjoon it's probably nothing
Don't embarrass us in front of condiments

Taebear
I hate that I got this joke but hyung sugar isn't a condiment

Suga
Thanks for the attempt Jin hyung
But where is it that you've seen it Namjoon?

Joonie
The collab credits!!
The one between our music program and another uni's program
That's why you spent so much time with that exchange student
You name was so well hidden that I wouldn't have found it had I not literally studied that song when it came out
It was phenomenal
You're so talented hyung
Why didn't you tell us before?

Seokjinnie
Well this is a new side of Namjoon I haven't seen before

chimchim
The fanboy side
It's cute
But wow Yoongi hyung
I landed myself a talented man

Taebear
I would hardly say you 'landed' him

Suga
Um thank you Namjoon for the compliments
But I already told you I don't do this professionally

Joonie
Why?
When you're so talented...

Suga
I have my reasons

chimchim
Yoongi hyung what ever it is I'm always supporting you
I'm even willing to help you bury the body
Ask Tae
We've done it before

Seokjinnie
EXCUSE ME????????

chimchim
What?
It was when his finch died
We digged a little hole in the backyard of an abandoned house and buried it there
RIP

HobiHobi
That sounds like instructions for summoning the dead
Why didn't you invite me????

Seokjinnie
This is your guys' best hyung?
I, the rightful best hyung, wouldn't join or support any acts of exorcism

Taebear
That's because you're too much of a coward hyung
Remember when we watched that horror movie last summer and we never watched one again because you couldn't sleep for like 3 days after

gamerboy97
You think Hobi hyung is any better?
I literally had to pull him with me into the haunted house thing the student committee organized last Halloween

Taebear
Well then you would hit the jackpot with me because you wouldn't have to pull me anywhere
Just name the place and I'll go wherever with you

gamerboy97
_--_##@##_--___***+]>===
TIENES LA DIRECCIÓN EQUIVOCADA!
EQUIVOCADA!
JUANKOOK NO ESTÁ DISPONIBLE EN ESTE MOMENTO

HobiHobi
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHHAAHHA

Seokjinnie
Who's Juankook

HobiHobi
Jungkook's defense mechanism mode

chimchim
Defense against taetae?

gamerboy97
No

Seokjinnie
Aw look he's back to normal

HobiHobi
No I'm pretty sure that was in spanish too
Right Juankook?

gamerboy97

Taebear
Defense against what then?

gamerboy97
Nada hermano mayor
Por favor ignóralos
Por favor ignórame también

chimchim
Seokjin hyung, permission to change the contact names?

Seokjinnie
Declined

chimchim
Only Taehyung's and Jungkook's?

Seokjinnie
Accepted

chimchim changed gamerboy97's name to Juankook

chimchim changed Taebear's name to Taehermano mayor

Seokjinnie
You know Jimin there's a place in hell for people who find joy in other people's misfortunes
I'll see you there

Juankook
:(

Seokjinnie
Is this in Spanish too?

Juankook

Taehermano mayor
Noooooo
Who made the baby sad :(

Juankook
...  ...  ... ... ..... ........ ...... ... .........................
Socorro 

chimchim
I'm okay baby

Taehermano mayor
The other baby

HobiHobi
I'm okay too

Seokjinnie
And before you ask, I'm okay as well

Taehermano mayor
No--

Joonie
HEY GUYS
I WAS KIND OF IN THE MIDDLE OF SOMETHING IMPORTANT

chimchim
S-Sorry Namjoonie hyung
How I could I ever make it up to you?
Name anything
Anything

Seokjinnie
The traffic light also turns red after yellow you know?
Oh wait you failed your driver's test because you can't learn how to stay in your lane
Just keep the colors in mind ok sweetie?

HobiHobi
That's the saltiest sweetie I've ever seen

Seokjinnie
Moving on
Yes Joonie go on with your fanboying
Yoongi is indeed extremely talented

Joonie
I know!
Wait
How would you know that?

 Seokjinnie
Um
Just listening to you talk about it I guess

Suga
It's alright Jin hyung you don't have to hide it from them anymore
It's kind of a touchy subject for me but I'm gonna share it anyway
It's not like you can hold anything against me
I don't care that much about you

Juankook
:(

Joonie
That's mean

Seokjinnie
He just sounds that way but you should see him
He's like a cute cat with a low voice

chimchim
A low voice? (╯°□°)╯

Joonie
You met each other?

Seokjinnie
Yeah like 3 days ago

Joonie
How come I didn't know about this??

Taehermano mayor
Oooohh Namjoonie hyuuung
Is this jealousy I'm smelling???

Joonie
No I just would've loved meeting Suga hyung too

Suga
That's nice Namjoon but I just asked Jin hyung for a favor and he helped me with it
It has to do with the whole producing thing

Joonie
What about it?

Suga
Well you don't know this
Neither does anyone really
But I've had a mixtape done under an alias
When I heard about how Jin hyung could make something out of what he actually loved I was um...
Inspired maybe ?
So I asked him about some stuff and he called a couple of people who know more about the recording label thing
It sounds really lame but I guess I don't want to look back and regret not trying to pursue something I truly love so I'm sending my mixtape to a recording company 

Joonie
That's amazing hyung
But why is it a touchy subject?
If you don't mind me asking of course

Suga
It's alright
Well my parents didn't support me.. at all
They did not want me to pursue music and to focus all my energy on studying instead
So in college I had to study something they wanted me to study because apparently music is a waste of time and I can never make a living out of it and for the past few years I believed them and only did projects in secret because I didn't want anyone finding out about it
But then I saw where Jin hyung is at and
He's doing fairly well
So I thought maybe it isn't a waste of time and maybe I can make a living out of it
And that's what I'm trying to do right now
So that's my whole story

HobiHobi
Hyung that's amazing!!!
I went through a similar experience

Joonie
I did too
Big time
I think we all have the tendency to second-guess ourselves and our choices
And the entertainment business is especially brutal
But I think it's important to follow your dreams and not let other people's words get to you
Especially when you're so talented

Taehermano mayor
Imagine a few years from now we see Yoongi hyung on TV saying this exact story
I'm rooting for you hyung!

Juankook
^ lo que dijo

Seokjinnie
I'm as proud of you as a person who has known you for 5 days can be

chimchim
Yoongi hyung I'm going to support you aaaaaall the way to the top
I can't wait to see what you put out there

Suga
Thank you Jimin
That's sweet of you
Seriously thank you to all of you
It truly means a lot
Perhaps there's a chance I'll care about you in the future
I'll keep you posted

Taehermano mayor
Hey why does Jimin get an individual thank you but we don't?

chimchim
Jealousy is a disease bitch
get well soon

Suga
Maybe I'll mention you in that interview you were talking about Taehyung

Taehermano mayor
He knows my name ༼ ಥ_ಥ ༽

Joonie
Hey is everyone alright?
It's 9pm and there's still no signs of life in this gc
I usually open my phone to messages about dry spells and Gatorade

Taehermano mayor
Not the best combition
I try to keep Gatorade away from Jimin for a reason
And hyung be careful what you wish for
We don't know what will come out of this

Joonie
I was just wondering

chimchim
Kim Taehyung aren't you tired of the dry spell joke already?

Taehermano mayor
You think it's a joke????????????

chimchim
I'm gonna ignore you for the sake of entertaining the fine man who specifically asked for me to liven this gc up

Joonie
I literally did not do that

chimchim
It's okay Namjoonie hyung just admit it

Joonie
But I didn't ?

chimchim
I'm sure Seokjin hyung won't mind

Joonie
But there's nothing to mind ?

Taehermano mayor
Hyung I told you be careful what you wish for

chimchim
Look who just appeared

Taehermano mayor
We literally had a mini conversation just a minute ago but hey baby how are you

chimchim
I miss you :(

Taehermano mayor
I miss you too :(

HobiHobi
But I thought you were roommates

Taehermano mayor
Yeah what about it?

HobiHobi
Aren't you living together? Why are you missing each other now?

Seokjinnie
They need therapy

Taehermano mayor
Couples therapy is expensive though

Seokjinnie
Who tf said anything about couples???

chimchim
We read between the lines
Therapy is very important though

Taehermano mayor
Living that pro-therapy life

chimchim
To answer your question Hobi hyung I've been in the studio practicing a move
I can't seem to land it (⋟﹏⋞)
And taetae has been out with friends and still hasn't come home
When will you come back home from war taetae?

Taehermano mayor
I'm in the car omw

Joonie
Texting and driving Taehyung? I thought I'd taught you better

Taehermano mayor
Hyung I don't even own a car
The last time I drove a car is when I took Jin hyung's for a few hours

Seokjinnie
YOU DID WHAT?!!!

Taehermano mayor
I SAID NOTHING
BYE

HobiHobi
Jimin I can help you with that move you're struggling with if you want
I mean I can try

chimchim
OMG ARE YOU SERIOUS HOBI HYUNG YOU HAVE NO IDEA HOW MUCH THIS MEANS TO ME!!!!!!!!!!!
Wait but hyung people will talk

HobiHobi
And say what?

chimchim
That I've sold my soul to bewitch you into helping me in a dance

Seokjinnie
Exorcism seems to be a reccuring theme in our talks these couple days

Taehermano mayor
Are you not going to sleep for 3 days straight now too?

Seokjinnie
Shut up delinquent
It's not like you're any better

Juankook
Taehyung hyung you get scared by horror movies?

Taehermano mayor
I don't know whether I should lie and say no to look cool
Or be honest and say yes because honesty is the foundation of a healthy relationship

Juankook
R-Relationship?

Taehermano mayor
Friendship is a type of relationships too

Juankook
Oh now it's realistic
IT'S ALRIGHT***
Autocorrect

Seokjinnie
This is like watching the titanic sink but with a twist
The twist is there wasn't even a ship to begin with

HobiHobi
I think there was a wooden boat there
Can't you see the potential?

chimchim
So taekook would be made into a great movie too???
Movie star taetae ٩(^ᴗ^)۶

Joonie
Don't encourage this

Taehermano mayor
Come on what are you even talking about
We're just messing around
No harm done right Jungkook?

Juankook
Yeah
Yeah of course
No harm done

Suga
Why is it that every time I check my phone there's 500 messages from this gc alone

Taehermano mayor
It's Namjoon hyung's fault

Joonie
Oh hey hyung
I was meaning to talk to you

Suga
?

Joonie
Will you be stopping by the studio tomorrow?
I'll be there from 11 till 2 so maybe we can officially meet

Suga
I don't think I'll be able to make it tomorrow but maybe the day after

chimchim
Namjoonie hyung will be meeting Yoongi hyung before I do omg
Namjoonie hyung when you spot him call me right away!!!
You have my number on speed dial!!!

Joonie
No I don't ?

chimchim
You do
I put it there

Joonie
What? When?

chimchim
When Tae put his in Seokjin hyung's phone
I got jealous

Seokjinnie
TAEHYUNG YOU SET YOUR NUMBER ON MY SPEED DIAL?

Taehermano mayor
It was a life or death situation please understand

Seokjinnie
Elaborate

Taehermano mayor
I wanted you to call me asap when the pizza we ordered arrived
But then it arrived right after I had set my number so that was a waste of effort and I didn't set it back
Please understand

Seokjinnie
...
I'm withdrawing everything that connects me to you two
Cutting all ties
I have had enough

HobiHobi
You guys are so precious though

Seokjinnie
...
Well I think you guys are precious even more than Mr HobiHobi
You're sooo cute
Both of you

Taehermano mayor
Um? What? 

Seokjinnie
What? I tell you that all the time don't I?
Delinquents who?
Mr HobiHobi can't barge in and be your favorite hyung just like that
I am and will always be the favorite hyung.

Joonie
You awakened his competitive side
RUN

Seokjinnie
Who made you that stew when you were sick because you can't take care of yourselves to save your fucking lives????
Who attented every dance competition and festival he was free to attend to watch your performance Park Jimin?????
And who bought you flowers after every exhibit you were featured in Kim Taehyung???
I have put up with enough disrespect from you two
And this is what I get???????
I don't even get to be your favorite hyung?????????

Taehermano mayor
NAMJOON HYUNG I TOLD YOU BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU WISH FOR

chimchim
TAE
HELP
TAE HELP ME
KIM TAEHYING I'M IN NEED OF AID

Taehermano mayor
Hey I just got out of class
Is everything alright?

chimchim
NO IT'S NOT
I CAN'T BELIEVE THAT HAPPENED TO ME
I've been a good child haven't I?
Why did god do this to me?
Why didn't it happen to you instead?
It would make more sense

Taehermano mayor
I don't know what happened but after the last 2 messages I hope you know that you deserve it

chimchim
But tae :(
I met him

Taehermano mayor
God?

chimchim
No but close
I ran into Yoongi hyung
And may I say:
AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHH

Taehermano mayor
I can't believe how much I can hear you saying this
Like I legit read this in your tiny voice

chimchim
Hey my voice isn't tiny :(

Taehermano mayor
It's cute

chimchim
Awwwwwww :')
OK NOW BACK TO CRISIS MODE
So you know I've been working on the choreo 
That dance move I can't get right 
I've been practicing since morning extra hard because Jung Hoseok senpai is so busy today that he won't be able to come by to help me until tomorrow so of course I have to use this time to be top condition so I could impress him
I worked on that for hours until I was so damn tired and starving before lunchtime so I was going out of the dance studio to the cafeteria to get something to eat when I suddenly look up to the face of an angel looking back at me
IT WAS YOONGI HYUNG
But I'm in my practice clothes and you know what they look like
DUSTRAGS
LIKE I STOLE THEM FROM A HOMELESS PERSON THEN RAN OVER THEM WITH A CAR
BUT THAT'S NOT ALL
My face tae
My face...
I'm sure I looked dead
No more than dead
Decayed
I shouldn't have whined about Namjoonie hyung meeting him before I do if I knew this will be how I can meet him first
But tae..
He's so cute
I hate my life
He probably thinks I'm ugly now
Scratch probably
He definitely thinks I'm ugly now
I'm not coming out of my room ever again

Taehermano mayor
Lol
Sux 2 b u

chimchim
..............
Blocked

Taehermano mayor
Jimin
You didn't really block me did you?
I was kidding
I'm listening to you i really am
Why aren't these being delivered?
Jimin?
You really did block me....

Taehermano mayor

Juankook
What???
Are you alright hyung???
Do you need me to do something???

Taehermano mayor
No it's fine it's not that serious but wow
If I ever need real help I know who I'll turn to
Thank you

Juankook
Anytime ig...

Joonie
What's wrong Tae?

Taehermano mayor
Soulmate issues :(

Joonie
What happened this time

Taehermano mayor
He blocked me!!!
Please tell him to unblock me 

Seokjinnie
What did you do?

Taehermano mayor
I just made a lame joke so nothing new there

chimchim
IT WAS REALLY INSENSITIVE DON'T TALK TO ME

Taehermano mayor
Namjoon hyung tell him I didn't mean it :(
He listens to you

Joonie
Come on Jimin
For my sake

Taehermano mayor
+ Jimin who will you continue venting to about your current breakdown?

Suga
What breakdown? Are you ok?

chimchim
YOONGI HYUNG YEAH TOTALLY FINE
TAEHYUNG IF YOU DON'T SAY ANOTHER WORD ABOUT IT NOW I'LL UNBLOCK YOU

Taehermano mayor
My lips are sealed

Seokjinnie
But I wanted to know

chimchim
NOT NOW SEOKJIN HYUNG

Suga
I didn't understand why you ran away the second you saw me so I thought maybe something had happened

chimchim
Hahahahahahah no hahahaha totally fine hyung

Seokjinnie
Why is Jimin so flustered?
He isn't usually like that even with Namjoon
What is happening
Does gay panic spread???
Juankook this is your fault

Juankook
NO IT'S NOT
NO GAY PANIC ON MY PART
NEVER WAS

chimchim
NOT ON MINE EITHER WHAT ARE THESE FALSE ACCUSATIONS

Juankook
YES FALSE ACCUSATIONS

Seokjinnie
...
Well this is a duo I didn't see coming

Taehermano mayor
Yes!
The main men in my life uniting

Juankook
S-Soy principal?
Estoy en tu vida?
Tu???
Yo????

Joonie
There's like a switch in him it's fascinating

Seokjinnie
No gay panic my ass

Joonie
What would happen if Taehyungie responded in Spanish?
Or like said one of whatever lines he's using in Spanish?

Seokjinnie
It would probably fry Juankook's brain don't do it

chimchim
What if he channels a third language?
Remember when Namjoonie hyung said a speech purely in Japanese and everyone was so impressed by it???
I couldn't sleep thinking about it
Intelligence is so sexy hyung

Seokjinnie
This is it
This is the red card Jimin
Remember when you said I'm all bark and no bite?

chimchim
....
I'm sorry

Seokjinnie
It's too late for that now Park Jimin

Juankook
Justin Bieber

Taehermano mayor
Are you a fan?

Juankook

Seokjinnie
Not now millennials
Now is time to show you a glimpse of Jimin's embarrassing past

chimchim
HYUNG NO

Seokjinnie
Hyung yes

Love the eyeliner
Makes your eyes almost invisible
Totally a great decision

And that chain
How did you even carry that thing on your neck the entire time ouch

Was this snapback physically attached to your body or...?

Seriously did you shower wearing it?

chimchim
NOOOOOOOOOOOO YOU MONSTER
PLEASE STOP

Seokjinnie
Say sorry hyungnim I won't do it again and I'll stop

chimchim
SORRY HYUNGNIM I WON'T DO IT AGAIN

Seokjinnie
Good boy

Juankook
...
That was brutal

Taehermano mayor
It snapped you out your Juankook persona
I'll note that down you turn back to normal after feelings of surprise or distress
Or both

Juankook
What for?

Taehermano mayor
I'm sure they'll come in handy

chimchim
Goddammit hyung he already thinks I'm ugly
If I thought my chances were low after our encounter this morning then they're out of question entirely now

Suga
Who could ever think you're ugly?
I personally think these are cute
And I know you ran away the second our eyes met but you're very far from ugly Jimin
It's the dead opposite

chimchim
Y-You didn't think that I was ugly?

Suga
Are you serious?
Of course not
Is that why you ran away?

chimchim
M-Maybe
Thank you Yoongi hyung I don't know what to say but
YOU HEAR THAT SEOKJIN HYUNG?
YOU CAN'T TEAR ME DOWN

 

Private chat between chimchim and Taehermano mayor

 

chimchim
He thinks I'm the dead opposite of ugly
It made me feel really good Tae what is this

chimchim
Today is the best day of my life

Taehermano mayor
I wish I was more confused by this but didn't you say the same thing a couple days ago?

chimchim
Yes and it was
But today is too
They're so great because of that one common thing between them

It's Jung Hoseok senpai!!!!
I MEAN HOBI HYUNG 
IT'S HOBI HYUNG PLEASE DON'T HAVE ME IN A HEADLOCK AGAIN
WE'VE JUST BEEN SWEATING SO MUCH TOO

HobiHobi
I'm gonna let it go only because you did so well today
And Taehyung you were totally right
I really was blown away by his dancing

Taehermano mayor
Hey I'm jealous :(
You're together and I'm home alone

HobiHobi
I'll let Jungkook know

Taehermano mayor
I'll give you all I own if he really does come over

HobiHobi
Wow you want it that much?

Taehermano mayor
No I'm just that sure that he won't be coming

HobiHobi
... Makes sense

Joonie
The dance bros meeting is nice and all
But have you considered the music bros?

Just wanted to drop this but we're going back to work now bye!

chimchim
Wow
I'm so gay

HobiHobi
Jimin just grunted so loud when he saw the picture then shouted 'I'm so gay'
He has a lot of pent up frustration in a tiny body doesn't he?

Taehermano mayor
Dry spell~~~~

chimchim
Ok but can you blame me?
It's Namjoonie hyung and Yoongi hyung in the same picture
My dream threesome
NO WAIT NO SCRATCH THAT 
JIN HYUNG FORGIVE ME I DID NOT SAY THAT
PLEASE NO MORE EMBARRASSING PICTURES
PLEASE I'M SORRY

Taehermano mayor
Wow...
Jin hyung and Hobi hyung really have Jimin on a leash

chimchim
Kinky

Taehermano mayor
I saw this coming

chimchim
I'm sure you did

Taehermano mayor
Jin hyung is at a shoot btw so he won't be seeing these

chimchim
Then how come I still feel his presence around us?

HobiHobi
Yeah I do too

Taehermano mayor
He has that demon energy wreathed within us

Juankook
Seokjin hyung?

chimchim
DON'T SAY THE NAME OUT LOUD
HE'LL SENSE IT

Juankook
But you just did ??

chimchim
That was to ask forgiveness child

Junakook
You're only 2 years older than me

chimchim
So?

Juankook
You see me as a child if you're 2 years older than me????
If so then you have to know that I'm not
Is Taehyung hyung here?

Taehermano mayor
Oh Jungkookie is calling me
What is it?

Juankook
Hyung I'm not a child ok?
Hobi hyung even calls me mature sometimes
Please don't think I'm a child

HobiHobi
This isn't one of those times

chimchim
I triggered the bunny

Taehermano mayor
Um?
Ok Jungkook don't worry
I don't think you're a child
Why do you care though?

Juankook
Uh
No reason

HobiHobi
Convincing

Juankook
No wait it's just that you're just the other person who's just 2 years older than me right???
So it would be unfair for just Jimin hyung to know that I'm not a child but you don't

Taehermano mayor
Oh yes just very unfair
Just thank you for telling me

Juankook
:D
You're welcome

Taehermano mayor
God he's so cute
Hobi hyung I'm going for it
You get all my belongings if it works but what do I get if it doesn't?

HobiHobi
Idk
Disappointment?

Taehermano mayor
...
Yeah sounds about right let's do it
Hey Jungkookie

Juankook
Yes hyung?

Taehermano mayor
You know how Jiminie and Hobi hyung are hanging out rn
So are Namjoon hyung and Yoongi hyung
Jin hyung is at a shoot too so he's unavailable

Juankook
...
Ok?

Taehermano mayor
Ok so that leaves the 2 of us
How about we meet up as well?

Juankook
...
Qué?
Conmigo???
Por qué????

Taehermano mayor
I'm bored

Juankook
No no no lo siento hermano mayor
No puedo hacerlo todavía
Lo siento no puedo

Taehermano mayor
You have to buy Gatorade again?

Juankook
Sí sí

chimchim
I'm getting sick and tired of translating every gay panic thing Jungkook says

HobiHobi
I'm getting sick and tired of Jungkook tbh

Taehermano mayor
I saw this coming so HA HOBI HYUNG I TOLD YOU SO

HobiHobi
Damn you win

chimchim
Does he though?

HobiHobi
Tae how about you come over here instead and I'll teach you a move or two

Taehermano mayor
OMG I'M NOT SAYING NO TO THAT
 

Seokjinnie
Hey Joonie and delinquents
What'd I miss?

chimchim

Seokjinnie
Why are you choking Taehyung?

chimchim
He said he wants to die

Seokjinnie
Oh so nothing new?

This week has been hard
I'm sure we all worked very hard
But now it's Thursday
And you know what that means?

Seokjinnie
That I have to wash my car tomorrow?

Joonie
That I have to wrap up the work on my demo tomorrow?

Chapter Text

91 minutes.

90 minutes

89 minutes and a half

87 already? Wow ok.

Jungkook checked his phone. Then checked his phone again. Then checked his phone again.

85 minutes more until it is officially time to Meet Kim Taehyung. 5 antagonizing minutes until class starts then 80 minutes of Prof. Lee talking 94% nonsense as Jungkook carefully lays down the foundations of his plan, right there from where he sits, 3 rows and 4 columns away from Kim Taehyung. It provides the perfect view of him. Purely 100% coincidental though, he could swear on his Bath and Body Works collection.

He came in earlier than Taehyung that first day of class (the whole class did but that's not important). He took his seat before Taehyung took his. See? Coincidental.

What wasn't quite as coincidental is that he kept sitting there up until now because of that favorable view of Kim Taehyung. He likes glancing over at Taehyung's side whenever Prof. Lee would be talking about something no one finds interesting and has nothing to do with their syllabus.

There's that one time though when Prof. Lee was talking about love and how it is one of the main influences on art. Jungkook looked over to Taehyung then and wondered what it would be like to love and be loved by Kim Taehyung. He got a little emotional about it.

But that's definitely a low point in Jungkook's life and will be buried somewhere along with the other pathetic things his mind has conjured up. 

Anyways, today, this unhindered view will come in handy because Jungkook is a man with a plan. And it is a perfect one.

It's so perfect that he didn't even agree to meet up with Taehyung the other day when this plan was yet in progress. An egg not ready to hatch yet. But when it did... Ah when it did, it turned out to be dazzling. Jungkook learned then that chicks are magnificent creatures. Hobi hyung will be proud of him once he hears this chick of a plan.

This is how it goes: He'll enter before Taehyung does so Taehyung wouldn't see him like all the (many) other times. When Taehyung does come, Jungkook will take him in... figuratively. He'll look at him. Like actually look at him so he could get himself used to it and in turn avoid turning into a crumbling mess of panic and blindness-by-beauty. He will also look for something to compliment Taehyung on. Maybe the shirt he'll be wearing. Or the earrings he'll be choosing which, by the way, look amazing on him whatever the color or design is. Then after class ends, he'll be all set and ready to meet Kim Taehyung with a serene heart and an easy smile. Maybe a charming aura too if he's lucky.

It's a foolproof plan so even he can't ruin it. He's got this in his pocket. No gay panic today. Not with this plan. Ugh, the excellence of his mind. It's astounding.

They talk on the group chat about Namjoon being a genius but no one knows of the hidden potential Jungkook has exhibited in this plan.

He suddenly can't wait until class is ove--

"Hey, stranger."

No.

It's the voice.

It's here.

No.

No.

No.

"H-Hey, Taehyung hyung."

 

 

Chapter Text

 

 

"H-Hey, Taehyung hyung." The voice crack at the second hyung there was very much needed, yes, starting off strong.

Jungkook looked at Taehyung's face as if it was the first time. And in a lot of ways in was. He's never looked at him this close before and he definitely didn't have Taehyung looking back at him the way he is now.

Jungkook always knew Taehyung was beautiful for the countless of times he's take glimpses of his face, but unfortunately for him, he didn't think that Taehyung could be even more beautiful up close. It completely caught him off guard. Whatever mess he gets himself into next, it's Taehyung's fault and his stupid excessive beauty. Looking at his face up close though, at his big eyes and big lips, highbridge nose and eyelashes, he thinks that getting himself into a little mess because of this won't be too bad. Not when it means he would have the older looking back at him like that. Taehyung might truly be the most beautiful man Jungkook has ever seen. He has said it before but feels even more strongly about it now. Taehyung is the most beautiful man he has ever seen.

"Hi..um.. uh... I'm Jungkook."

Taehyung furrowed his perfect eyebrows in confusion, looking a bit incredulous but with a small smile still on his lips. 'Death by facial expressions' is what Jungkook imagines will be written on his gravestone. "Yes, Jungkook, I know. That's literally why I came up to you and said hi."

Jungkook felt the heat radiating from his face. "Yes. Yes! Of course. It's just said stranger and I thought-- No wait that's not-- It's just a habit, maybe. You know when you meet new people, you have t-to introduce yourself. You're Kim Taehyung."

Jungkook dipped his head down right after the words left his mouth and squeezed his eyes shut in a grimace. How did he manage to embarrass himself this much in a 2-minute interaction, he has no idea.

"That's right. I am Kim Taehyung and Kim Taehyung bought you something." Kim Taehyung smiled that dazzling smile to him. Jungkook always thought that that smile was (very objectively) beautiful and, seeing it directed at him, he couldn't help but smile as well despite the erratic heartbeat, burning hot face and the crushing feeling of doom inside of him. Taehyung's effect.

"You didn't have to get me a-anything, hyung. Why did you? Oh, god. I didn't get you anything. I didn't know we were exchanging gifts. It isn't Christmas yet. If I knew, I would've got to something too. I'm sorry.." Jungkook knew he was blabbering but what else could he do when Taehyung was standing there all kind and beautiful that it gets Jungkook's mind in jumble he doesn't have the current capacity to unknot. It's indisputable foul play.

Taehyung laughed lightly and pushed the plastic bag he was holding towards Jungkook. "Trust me, this is for both of our sakes." That laugh though...

"What is it?" Jungkook asked then regretted it immediately. He could literally just have taken a look inside the bag and found out by himself but that'd be too merciful on his soul.

"It's Gatorade. You know so you wouldn't run away agai-- I mean so you wouldn't have to buy some today again."

Jungkook's face burned even hotter than before. He could feel the tips of his ears were flaming. He looked inside the bag and saw 4 bottles of Gatorade, all different flavors. He refused to look at Taehyung's face after that. How did he figure out getting Gatorade was a decoy to cover for him running sway? Goddammit, he's that smart. "T-Thank you, hyung but um... oh, look. It's Prof. Lee. We should go inside."

Taehyung looked in the direction the younger was looking at and, indeed, the professor was at the beginning of the corridor. Taehyung didn't see Jungkook's sigh of relief though. "Okay then let's go."

They walked side by side to the class and for a brief second, Jungkook wondered what the other students in class would think if they ever see them together. There was inevitably a good number of students here because of the course being an elective in common between more than one major. But still, people noticed them. They were sort of more on the side of the 'known' but each of them was for a completely different reason. This wasn't the time to dwell on that though. This is time to set his plan in action. What's left of it anyway. There might have been a setback but that doesn't mean it's ruined. The foundations are still there. He just has to take his usual seat up at the 7th row and follow the steps of his flawless plan that had been flawed.

Taehyung walked towards his seat as Jungkook kept going up to his. "Um, Jungkook.. Where're you going?"

Jungkook skimmed over the class. His seat was empty as usual. There was even more seats available. He didn't see the point of Taehyung's question. "To my seat?"

"Well, why don't you sit next me?" Taehyung gestured to the empty seat next to him. "We can go through these 80 minutes together." If Jungkook were to be honest, he'd admit how he had thought about taking that seat many times in the past few months. He had made up scenarios in his head of how it might go if he just sat there and maybe asked for a pen or something similar as an excuse to start a conversation. He's seen others do it before and he'd had it done to him before. He also knew Taehyung was a nice guy and wouldn't turn him down in some way but he never could conjure up enough courage to actually go through with it. It's fine though because here they are now and maybe it's fate that decided this would be the best time for them to meet instead of all the other times Jungkook has thought about talking to Taehyung. It's all fate's work, definitely not Jungkook's shyness.

"Y-You want me to sit next you?" His mind worked a mile a minute. He knows he can't execute his plan if he sits there, but how could he say no. What's the best case scenario in this and how could he make it happen?

"Of course I do, Jungkookie." At that, all that Jungkook was thinking about ceased to exist. His heart was beating so loud he could hear it ringing annoyingly fast in his ears. Jungkookie. Taehyung really just called him Jungkookie. Sure, he calls him that over text but hearing him say it in person is different. Very different.

"Y-Yeah." Jungkook breathed out. "Yeah, okay."

Taehyung then started taking some stuff out of his bag and setting them on the desk space in front of his seat. Jungkook couldn't look away from him. This wasn't a part of his plan. He was no longer even thinking of a plan but there he was, taking Kim Taehyung in without realizing he was doing it. While it made his heartbeat pick up pace, he couldn't help but feel contended somehow. This is the feeling he has felt for Taehyung since he saw him that first time, weeks ago from today. This is the feeling he had seeing Taehyung smile and hearing Taehyung laugh. The warmth in his stomach, the fluttering of his heart. All of it was there and might not be going away anytime soon.

Taehyung glanced up for a moment at the spot Jungkook was standing but then had to do a double take as he saw Jungkook still in place, hasn't even moved an inch, instead of being next to him by now as he probably expected. "You planning on staying there a while longer or..?" Jungkook nodded absentmindedly. "How long?"

"Not long."

"Okay, good. In your own time." Taehyung gave him an encouraging smile before sitting down, not looking at Jungkook again but Jungkook could still see he was smiling. Like he knew something Jungkook didn't. Or more like he knew something he thought Jungkook didn't.

Jungkook finally snapped himself out of the familiar daze and took the seat beside Taehyung's silently. But then it grew too silent so did the need to say something. He's been waiting to do this for a while now. Sit in this seat: check.  Start a conversation: pending. He had to say something. "Hi."

Taehyung looked at him, face very amused, ready to say something back but unfortunately--or maybe not that unfortunately--, Prof. Lee settled in and began his usual introduction; the date, the roll call, the 'young men and women, if you don't plan on commiting to this class then do us a favor and leave before the doors close in 3. 2. 1.' It's always fun. Feels like a field trip to a rocket exhibition every week.

Jungkook tried his best to listen to the professor as he gave a brief summary of what they talked about the last lecture, only to talk about it again but with more details which basically defeats the purpose of giving a summary in the first place. At the end of it, he adds a line or 2 of new information regarding the lesson and voila! You've got yourself a lecture in Prof. Lee's class.

It wasn't like Jungkook ever paid more than 15% of attention to Prof. Lee's class, but now even those 15%, along with the other 85, were being directed towards the person to his left. Perhaps he can still carry on with his plan despite sitting here. He can't look directly at Taehyung and risk getting caught so maybe working with he can look at would be good enough. Like Taehyung's hands atop of the table for example. Perhaps he could tell him that he has beautiful hands...if it wasn't creepy and weird as it sounds. That won't be going to deliver the desired results. Still very true though.

He was focused on his plan so much that he didn't feel Taehyung's gaze on him the entire time. At least until he felt the latter lean closer towards him, pause for a second or 2, then whispering something in a unnecessarily attractive low voice. "You're even cuter in person, Jungkookie."

And that's how Jungkook was breathing one second, then not the other. He basically choked on air, the coughs that followed attracting the whole class's attention. Even Prof. Lee stopped talking about a very personal anecdote that his students definitely didn't need to know about. Maybe Jungkook was doing them a favor.

He could feel the heat all the way up his neck to his face, reaching the tips of his ears as he tried to compose himself. Or maybe he should give up instead. Maybe if he didn't get his breathing right, he'd pass out and everyone will forget about him existing until the remaining time of this lecture passes. He sure wished that would happen.

But Taehyung had to be the angel he is and handed him a bottle of water, the cap twisted off and all. A true gentleman. So Jungkook took a gulp, then another, then another. If choking didn't work, maybe drowning himself will.

"Slow down." Taehyung said from beside him, the laughter in his voice made Jungkook get even redder.

He braced himself and lowered the bottle, suddenly feeling the impact of eyes of 45 pairs of eyes on him + Prof. Lee's.

He didn't exactly trust his voice at that moment so all he could offer everyone was a very insincere but firm thumbs up and a gesture to Prof. Lee to carry on, pointing to himself then giving him an okay sign which was supposed to signify 'I'm okay' but what he wished it actually meant was 'kill me'. It would even give Prof. Lee another fun anecdote to tell his future classes; how he euthanized an idiot in class that one time. A win-win situation.

Prof. Lee, however, went back to the actual chapter they were on instead of continuing that awful story no one cared about. Jungkook found a little solace in knowing he had rescued his fellow students from yet another Lee tale.

But as the whole rush of embarrassment washed away, Jungkook couldn't get Taehyung's words, Taehyung's voice, Taehyung's body heat next to his out of his mind.

He replayed it all in his head with a fluttering heart until he had to cover his face to conceal a smile that was threatening to break. He took enough embarrassment for the day. More like the year but whatever. He finally decided to get out his notebook and the pencil case he carries around, stuffed with like 18 pens of different colors, a couple highlighters, one pencil and a few other stuff. He liked to be prepared whenever he decides to sit in the last row in class and start doodling different images he would be inspired to sketch. It was mainly superheroes and anime characters. Also, it isn't like he's the one who's paying for all the pens anyway so why not go all out.

He didn't get these stuff out for doodling this time though. He actually decided he should take notes. It will help him avoid and take his mind off Taehyung. He's 98% sure taking notes was created for this sole purpose.

It wasn't until about 15 minutes later that Taehyung decided to talk to him again. This time, Jungkook is planning to answer with a steady voice and a heart of steel. The blush has gone away and his heart wasn't beating erratically anymore. That was until he heard Taehyung's voice again but it wasn't as bad. It wasn't unpleasant either.

Taehyung nudged his head towards the pen in Jungkook's hand. "Hey, I've seen this pen before."

Hold a conversation, Jungkook. Hold a conversation, Jungkook. It's the middle of a lecture but hold a conversation. Taehyung asked you sit next to him and talked to you first. He wants to talk to you. Hold a conversation. "Really? There aren't much of them around though. My brother sends me a bunch whenever he can because they're my favorites. I think they're made in Japan."

"Makes sense. I haven't seen much of them either but there was like 4 of them scattered around me by the end of that chem exam. The one we took together."

Oh, no.

"A-Are you sure those are the same p-pens? You could be mistaken. Or maybe a lot of p-people use them, who knows, right? " Jungkook took the pen he was using and the corrector he had on the table with shaking hands and stuffed them in his pencil case so fast that it fell out of his fingers and dropped to with the ground with a seriously repugnant clatter.

That's it. It's official. The world hates Jungkook. It couldn't get worse that this.

"What is going on with you, today?" Prof. Lee asked but it sounded a lot more like reprimanding.

"Lo siento, perfesor."

Oh, no. ×2

No. No. No. No. No.

Apparently things could get worse than that.

He made sure he was never going to speak Spanish again. He tried to wipe the language out of his mind, threw away the books, even stopped watching the latest season of Money Heist. And this is how he's repaid. In front of the whole class. How will Taehyung ever think he's cool now?

"Excuse me?" Prof. Lee lifted his glasses up from over his eyes as if that would help him make better sense of the situation.

Sorry for the disturbance. Just say sorry for the disturbance. "Perdón por la molestia." Oh why does he even try anymore. "No volverá a suceder."

He could hear the chatter of the other students around him but he didn't dare look at any of them. Especially not at Taehyung.

"Did he just speak Spanish?"

"That's hot."

No, girl from the 6th row. This isn't "hot". Pretty sure you're the only one who thinks that way.

"That's an awful Spanish accent, son." Of course Prof. Lee would say something like that.

"Lo sé, pero Hobi hermano mayor no me dejaba practicar delante de él sin llamarme Juankook." Jungkook explained, a bit deflated at the jibe to his accent. Another adjective to add to the list of emotions Jungkook has experience today and never want to do it again.

"Hey, Juankook." Jungkook involuntary turned to the voice despite knowing who it belonged to. He regretted it upon seeing the amusement in the older's eyes. But he looked so cute that way that the regret didn't last long.

"S-Sí, hermano mayor?"

"I just saw Jin and Jimin peaking through the door."

Jungkook's eyes widened almost comically. "What?!"

Jungkook had seen them talk about following him and Taehyung back when they first said they're going to meet each other. Namjoon said he wouldn't let them though. Why isn't Namjoon not letting them?

"You switched back." Taehyung pointed out and oh, he really did. "I knew feelings of surprise and distress would work. Good thing I took notes."

"I'm-- Thank you, I guess." Jungkook scratched the back of his neck shyly. Is this Taehyung was taking care of him already? The thought made him blush.

He then turned to Prof. Lee again. "Sorry, professor. Please, carry on. No more interruptions from me."

The professor gave Jungkook a weird look but continued reading off of the book that was in his hands anyway.

Jungkook turned to Taehyung then. "I think it's best I change my seat."

Taehyung almost pouted and Jungkook was ready to buckle himself into that seat if it made that pout go away. But he knows he shouldn't do it. "What if I stop talking to you? We'll just sit in silence and maybe actually pay attention?"

"It isn't just the talking that's messing with my head, hyung." Jungkook said before he could stop himself and picked up his stuff before making his way back to his usual seat, missing Taehyung's soft stutter of an 'Oh' in response to Jungkook's words and what they may imply.

Taehermano mayor
Jimin
Jin hyung

chimchim
Taehyung what are these allegations of misconduct you're accusing us of?
We pledge innocence and nothing but innocence

Suga
...
Why is he talking like that?

Seokjinnie
Those are words of truth

Joonie
No actually those are tell tales of Jimin lying

HobiHobi
Jimin you sound like a lawyer
You could have been one omg

chimchim
Are you saying I'm not good enough be a dancer? ಥ_ಥ

Taehermano mayor
You won't live long enough to be either if you don't keep an at least 50-meter radius away from us

chimchim
I ALREADY TOLD YOU WE AREN'T FOLLOWING YOU ANYWHERE
We just happened to pass by that lecture hall

Taehermano mayor
Jimin you were both literally peaking through the door

HobiHobi
What did you see ◔ ⌣ ◔

Juankook
HYUNG NO

Suga
I mean you did say something about 'turning Juankook off' so that's on you

HobiHobi
Yeah like I can't imagine there's anything Taehyung can do that would turn you off

Juankook
THAT WASN'T WHAT I MEANT

Joonie
Told you that phrasing was off

Taehermano mayor
I can see Jungkook having a meltdown a few rows behind me
Please don't upset the baby
Ok now I think he just gave up and put his head down on the table

Juankook
Curiosity killed the cat

Taehermano mayor
Not to me they weren't

Seokjinnie
It was bonding experience

Taehermano mayor
You literally threw a towel at me and said 'good work' before walking away

Seokjinnie

Do you think they'll keep their promise and not follow us?

Taehermano mayor
Oh definitely not
Jimin is the biggest slytherin you could ever meet
I'm not trusting anything that little gremlin says
But you don't have to worry about it
When he 'casually' asked me the other day about where you and I will be going I named a place far far away from where we'll actually be

Juankook
...
You and Jimin hyung have a weird relationship hyung

Taehermano mayor
You don't know half of it bunny
I mean buddy*
Now come on

Juankook

Hey Red Skull
Stop hitting your head on the table and let's go!!!

 

 

Chapter Text

 

 

"There's nothing as exciting as a comeback- seeing someone with dreams, watching them fail, and then getting a second chance," once said Rachel Griffiths, but Jeon Jungkook also shares the same sentiment. Now lies his second chance. This is his comeback. He won't let this slip away. One shot. His 8 mile.

This is where his original plan should've started anyway. This is where he operates, where the OG is set. Now with new and advanced tactics that consist of: Just be cool about it. Be cool. Stay calm and collected. It's a clean slate. Make use of it. Embarrassment in front of the whole class who? Jungkook doesn't know. He hasn't even been acquainted.

The plan will commence as it is and it's starting now as Taehyung opens the door to the burger joint he basically swears by. "I'm telling you, Jungkookie, their burgers are seriously the best around."

Play it cool. He's only talking about burgers. "That good?"

"You're gonna have to find out for yourself." Taehyung winked at him and Jungkook almost tripped. Calm and collected, yes. That was gravity's fault. Good thing Taehyung looked away towards the diner again before it happened.

They beat rush hour so the place wasn't too crowded. They settled on a table in one of the less crowded spots. The waitress handed them menus which Taehyung eagerly flipped open and started checking out. Jungkook couldn't help but feel so endearded by the scene before his eyes. Taehyung didn't look intimidating like that, flipping through his favorite burger joint menu with his lower lip tucked in between his teeth in anticipation.

Jungkook suddenly remembered what Hoseok had said to him once; to stop looking at Taehyung as Kim Taehyung, as something so unreachable. Well... he probably is in more ways than one but now isn't the time to dwell on that. He's sitting here in a burger joint with Taehyung who is just a colleague and he will act as such. Nothing more, nothing less. And as a first step, Jungkook should take the initiative and start a conversation. It's easy. He'll just ask of Taehyung a recommendation since the latter loves this place so much and has been here many times. There will be no stuttering as he speaks. No voice cracks either. He just had to remind himself that this isn't Kim Taehyung. It's just Taehyung. Taehyung hyung. Not Kim Taehyung. Not Kim Taehyung. Not Kim Taehyung.

So it isn't really surprising that Jungkook wanted to bury himself under a pile of dirty laundry from the dance team's practice room after a hard day at practice when he blurted out what his jumbled up mind came up with.

"Kim Taehyung!"

He really just let down 15-time Grammy award winner Eminem and Academy Award nominee Rachel Griffiths.

Taehyung gave him the same look he did earlier in the hallway outside of class when he introduced himself even though Taehyung already knew who he is. It was a look of confusion that didn't want to seem offensive. Like...playful confusion. How can a person be so cute?

Not the time.

"Jeon Jungkook." Taehyung retorted when Jungkook followed calling Taehyung's name by nothing and just sat there, stunned and hating his life. How can he come back from there?

Goddammit, Rachel Griffiths. He really could use some B-rabbit and his mom's spaghetti energy right about now...

Jungkook didn't know what to say but he had to try anyways. "I..." He started but still couldn't come up with what follows. He felt his face heat up even more than before when Taehyung chuckled, nice and low. Fuck...

"You're really hungry, aren't you?"

Finally, something he can trust himself answering. He knew he could redeem himself! His second chance. "Yes."

Taehyung nodded towards the menu still sitting on the table in front of Jungkook. "Well then, take a look at the menu and let's order already. I'm starving too."

Yes, the menu. Jungkook forgot about that, so set on asking Taehyung for recommendations. Maybe he can still ask now. He's really eager to the burgers too. "What do you usually order? Like what would you recommend?"

Taehyung seemed to think about it for a moment before answering. "I like to try different things but I think the dynamite one is my absolute favorite. It's like the best thing ever invented."

Play it cool, Jungkook. "Okay then, it's settled. If it's as good as you say it is and I get addicted to this place, I'm blaming you."

Taehyung's smile widened. Jungkook didn't know what it was about and he couldn't have guessed it was because of the progress he had made in this conversation with Taehyung, finally opening up just a tiny bit. "Yes, Jungkookie. Blame me and bring me here with you every time as a punishment."

The younger was a little taken aback by Taehyung's response. Taehyung made it sound like he wouldn't mind spending more time with Jungkook.

"You would want that?" He didn't know what he looked like asking that but he guessed it was his OJO face again.

Taehyung smiled wide at him again. "Of course." The enthusiasm in his voice made Jungkook's stomach do backflips.

The waitress from earlier came back with a small rectangular notebook in her hand. "Ready to order?"

"Yes. 2 dynamite burgers please with extra fries on the side." He told her then looked over to Jungkook. "The fries here are good too. Fries are good everywhere actually..."

Jungkook frowned playfully. "Now you're just making me hungrier."

The waitress looked between them once before turning to her notebook again. "Would you like something to drink with your order?"

"Coke for me." Taehyung does seem like a coke kind of guy. "Jungkook?"

"None for me, thank you."

Taehyung flinched back. "Seriously?! Why?" He leaned forward again with a teasing look on his face. "Does sugar not go well with all the muscles, Jungkookie?"

Taehyung's words Jungkook's whole body set aflame. Were the abs really worth going through this? "W-What, hyung? No, i-it's not--"

"The food will be here in 15 minutes." The waitress cut them off, apparently not even trying to hide the amusement on her face. "My name is Aecha. Please call me if you need anything else."

"Okay, thank you." Taehyung didn't lift his eyes off of Jungkook, sporting a similar expression now as the waitress.

The younger looked down at his fidgeting fingers on the silver table. "I-It's just that Hobi hyung tells me that the soft drinks are especially really bad for your body. That's why..." 

Taehyung let a one-syllabled sarcastic laugh. "I've only met him twice but during both of those times, he had a can of Sprite in his hand."

Jungkook shook his head at the irony. "I can't believe you've met Hobi hyung twice already when I'm the one who--" He stopped himself in time.

But no, that wasn't 'in time'. It's too late and Taehyung obviously caught it. How does Jungkook even manage to always say thing he shouldn't? Why can't he think straight with Taehyung around. He really does mess with everything in Jungkook's being.

What's even worse is how Jungkook reacts to these stupid, stupid slips. Like now, his eyes are probably comically wide and looks like he's seen some sort of ghost. Death reaper would've been nice right about now...

"When you're the one who what, Jungkookie?" Taehyung raised an eyebrow at him, looking intrigued.

Jungkook quickly tried to compose himself. He refuses this being how he goes down. He won't let Kim Taehyung know about his miniscule crush this way. There has to be a way out. "Hyung," He started with a voice crack. Maybe this won't go all that well. "I meant to say when I'm the one whom you're in the same class w-with. I've known longer but he's hung out with you more already. Isn't it sort of strange?" Jungkook ended with a pathetic excuse of a laugh. He's totally got it under control.

Taehyung laughed lowly along but Jungkook had a feeling that they were laughing at 2 different things... But Jungkook could really get used to the sound of the other's laugh. Could get more than used to it. "You're cute, gamerboy."

Jungkook blushed crimson. Is the blushing like a prerequisite to hanging out with Taehyung? Will it ever go away? Jungkook guessed it probably wouldn't. Not when Taehyung is saying those things. The younger is used to people calling him cute. Hoseok especially calls him that all the time. At least that's how it is when he isn't swearing at Jungkook for whatever new dumb thing the latter has done. With that being said, Taehyung being the one who's calling him cute just...it just hits differently.

But wait. Gamerboy?

"It's lame I know, okay?" Jungkook tucked his hair behind his ear and probably would've seen Taehyung's eyes follow the movement had he been able to look at the older as he spoke. "It was just my username for one of my videogames accounts and I couldn't think of another one for my contact name."

Taehyung chuckled, throwing a tissue paper he'd been twirling in his beautiful hands in Jungkook's way. "'And Jungkook' wasn't an obvious enough option for you?"

"Hey, you said it was a cool name!" Jungkook threw the tissue paper that had landed on Jungkook's lap back at Taehyung before he looked up and leveled with his gaze involuntarily. His stomach plummeted so hard, his breath was knocked out of him as their eyes met. He hates how he's reminded of how beautiful Taehyung is every time he has to look at him. The Taehyung effect.

"I didn't say it wasn't." Taehyung straighten his posture, looking more excited now at the subject. "What games do you play?"

Jungkook shrugged. "Just a little bit of everything. Overwatch, Fortnite. Le--"

"You had me at Overwatch." Taehyung cut him off as put out his hand for Jungkook to shake. Wha--

Jungkook looked at Taehyung's extended hand longer that what was deemed a socially adequate amount of time, but he had to get his brain to function enough for him to put his hand in Taehyung's. That proved to be challenging when all his brain was doing was chanting 'You're going to touch Kim Taehyung's hand'. He glaced up Taehyung one more time before finally putting his hand in Taehyung, clasping it firmly. Jungkook hated to admit thay loved it a little too much. Like he didn't want the contact to stop. How can a handshake in the middle of a diner near campus with like 20 different people around them feel special to Jungkook? All he knew was that that was his first physical contact with Taehyung. And that it was nice.

"We have to play a couple games together, gamerboy." Jungkook didn't know if Taehyung kept his hand in his while he spoke on purpose or not. But that wasn't really something the younger minded. Not at all. When Taehyung had finally pulled his hand away, Jungkook's hand felt dramatically cold. "I can't wait to beat you."

At the mention of the idea of Jungkook losing, all mushy feelings were pushed to the background. His competitiveness coming out at full force. "Me? You think you can beat me?" Jungkook squinted at Taehyung daringly. "Are you sure about that, Kim Taehyung?"

"Oh, so it's Kim Taehyung now." Taehyung seethed. "We're getting impersonal, gamerboy? What happened to hyung?"

Jungkook snapped out of it momentarily as he retreated back into himself. "I-I'm sorry, Taehyungie hyung. I didn't mean it."

Taehyung eyebrows shot up before a smile made its way onto his lips. He looked at Jungkook without saying a word, like he was waiting for Jungkook to realize something.

What could it be?

He replayed what he said back in his mind. He said sorry. He said he didn't mean it. He said hyung. He didn't say Taehyung's full name. He said... Oh no.

His eyes immediately widened and he started panicking. Taehyung was quick to cut it short though as he spoke again. "This is definitely my favorite way you choose to address me, Jungkook."

Jungkook sat there stunned for a moment before the gears in his brain started turning again. "I-It is?"

"Yes, yes, yes!"

Jungkook felt a surge of happiness-- pride even at Taehyung's response and how pleased he had sounded. Did a nickname Jungkook used make Taehyung feel that happy? If that's the case then Jungkook should definitely use it more often new that he knows that it has this effect on Taehyung and Jungkook being the one behind it. This is---

Wait, that's their--

Oh.

What, unlike Taehyung, Jungkook failed to notice a couple seconds ago was the fact that their food was being placed on their table. He already figured out that that reaction wasn't because of him after all but he still looked at Taehyung and saw him looking at the food the way Jungkook thought the older was looking at him. It disheartened him a little, that's for sure. But it didn't matter to him that the joy on Taehyung's face he isn't the one behind it. As long as Taehyung smiled that way, the rest didn't matter.

"Jimin, for the love of God, can you stop calling me already?!" Taehyung snapped through the phone. It has been ringing every 5 minutes since they were still in the middle of an undeclared eating contest of who will finish their burgers first. Jungkook won. He ended up liking it more than he had expected, also ended up taking a sip or 2 from Taehyung's drink. Taehyung wondered why Jungkook had blushed a little too much as he did it.

One thing is for sure though; Jeon Jungkook is definitely shy. That is if the way he avoided all eye contact, barely looked at Taehyung as he spoke and his face being red almost double the times as it remained normal is anything to go by. But Jungkook also had moments where he let go of his nerves and said things like 'tomatoes in burgers are like pineapples on pizza' or 'hyung, I think I'll call to come here daily. These are so good'. He said the last line with a groan as he swallowed the second bite of his burger and Taehyung almost cursed at the feeling the younger's voice had made him feel.

Naturally, Taehyung was a little conflicted. He didn't know which side of Jungkook he preferred.

Okay, another thing was also for sure; Jungkook is way too cute for his own sake.

The level of fondness Taehyung had experienced for a practical stranger during their less than 3 hours together was alarmingly high.

Now, for example, standing outside of the diner at the side of the parking lot, he turned over to Jungkook and the latter immediately looked away in an attempt not to let Taehyung catch him looking at him. How can someone not soften at that?

But Taehyung had a more of a pressing matter at hand now. "But you didn't answer my phone calls or Seokjin hyung's." Jimin reasoned over the phone.

"Yes, I didn't pick up all 7 of your extremely annoying calls. Doesn't that tell you something?"

There was a pause, then, "Are you perhaps rather preoccupied with something that requires more privacy and less clothes--" Okay, Taehyung heard enough of that.

"I'm hanging up now. Bye, Jimin."

Taehyung heaved a sigh of relief as that short but dreadful phone call came to an end but that didn't last very long. It didn't last long at all. He had barely lowered the phone inches away from his ear before it was blaring again. Maybe changing his number isn't that bad of an idea.

It was Seokjin this time. He answered right away. Better just get it over with already. "What?"

Taehyung may not have expected a hello, but he definitely did not expect Jin to be shouting at him on the other line either. "Kim Taehyung! You will not be putting your lecherous wing dang doodle anywhere near that sweet little boy or--"

"What the fuck?!" The words came out louder than Taehyung intended. It was like an involuntary reaction. Jungkook immediately looked at him alarmed but Taehyung was far too mortified to explain. "What the hell did Park Jimin tell you?! Or wait. Don't tell me. I don't want to know. Can you tell me why you're calling me for already? Other than giving me a headache and extremely uncalled for mental images?"

"So you're not doing anything...unPG-13?"

"No."

"You're in public?"

"Yes."

"And you went out for burgers?"

"Yes."

"You're lying."

"Ye-- What? No." Taehyung quickly corrected himself. He's not about to get Jin and Jimin on his back for something he didn't even do. Talk about worst case scenario. "Why would I lie?"

"We didn't happen to see you walk in or out of the burger joint you told Jimin you'll be taking Jungkook to." Jin wouldn't have sounded like he just made the bust of the year if he had realized what he just gave away 

"And why exactly were you there, hyung?" Taehyung asked, words slow and clear. "Didn't you promise not to follow us?" He looked at Jungkook and saw that he was looking back at him in fascination and a hint of giddiness probably having connected the dots together. He'll be a good partner in crime.Taehyung can feel it.

"We didn't." Jin sounded casual again. "We got here before you. If anything, you're following us."

"Oh and what kept you so alert about who's coming in and out there?" Taehyung countered, now more amused than annoyed. "From what I've witnessed, you wouldn't turn away from your food even if the house around you is burning."

Jungkook chuckled lightly. "That bad?" He whispered to Taehyung who mouthed an 'even worse' in return. It made Jungkook giggle again and Taehyung melted a little inside at the sound of it. How can it be both cute and attractive? That's basically a summary of Jeon Jungkook: cute and attractive.

Taehyung heard shuffling on the other line. "Taetae." It's Jimin's turn again, it seems. "Where's my cake?"

"I swear I didn't eat anything." Taehyung quickly defended himself. After almost 3 years of living together, they've gone through enough hellish repercussions of eating each other's food to do it again.

"No, Tae. My cake. The one you'll be making me tonight." Jimin reminded him. It's not that he forgot. He didn't. But for the past couple of hours, a thing probably more important has had his attention. "Hobi hyung and uh... Y-Yoongi hyung will be here. We have to be prepared."

Taehyung's heart warmed a little at the way Jimin's voice dropped in volume and firmness saying Yoongi's name. Tonight should be fun. "Yes, of course. I'm going to the store to buy them right now."

"Great!" Taehyung could imagine Jimin's face lightening up as he said that. "I'll see you in a few. And you have to tell me every PG-13 thing that happened today with the bunny."

"Okay, baby. Promise. See you." Taehyung hung up upon hearing a bye from Jimin before turning to Jungkook again. He had his head lowered and his hands in his pants pockets. "Um, sorry to keep you waiting."

Jungkook looked up at when he heard Taehyung talk to him then quickly shook his head at what Taehyung had said. "It's alright, hyung." He said before a stiff pause and a frown that wasn't there before. Not even the whole class fiasco. "I guess you have to leave now."

"Why do you sound like you want me gone, Jungkookie?" Taehyung teased with a smile that made Jungkook panic again. "I thought we're having fun."

"No!" Jungkook denied aggressively. Taehyung frowned and the younger panicked further. "I mean yes!"

"You do?" Taehyung pressed further. The thing is, he already knew what Jungkook meant but some twisted part of him liked to tease the boy like that. He wasn't really sure why.

"No for wanting you gone and yes for having a good time." Jungkook answered firmly. Taehyung's rectangular smile was on fill display then. He couldn't help it. He might have somewhat tricked Jungkook into saying those words but it was incredibly pleasant hearing them anyway.

Jungkook carried on explaining. "It's just that you told your baby-- I mean your Jimin! I mean Jimin! Just Jimin! Jimin hyung!" Taehyung tried his best to hold in his laughter at Jungkook's mini meltdown before Jungkook composed himself and tried again. "What I meant to say is you told Jimin hyung that you're going to the store now so that's why..."

"Let's go then." Taehyung ushered but Jungkook looked as confused as ever.

"Go where?" 

"To buy cake." Taehyung answered like it should've been obvious already. "Cake box mixes anyways. I'm making them for Jimin, remember? Weren't you there during that conversation?"

Jungkook didn't look any less confused. "I-I was."

"Then let's go buy them and I promise I'll give you an extra large piece of your favorite one."

"B-But, hyung, I'm not invited." Jungkook pointed out. It's true. Taehyung forgot to properly invite him but it was sort of a given from the start. Of course he wanted Jungkook to be there.

"Then what the hell am I doing now?" Taehyung quipped and Jungkook looked away, obviously trying to hide whatever expression he was sporting. But then he shook his head as if to snap himself out of it but still avoided meeting Taehyung's eyes. Taehyung wished he did that a little less often. "I'm learning not to question things with you, hyung."

"That's lesson number 2."

"What's lesson number 1?"

"Learn to be less shy around me, Jungkook. It seems like I'll stick around for a while if that's okay with you."

Jungkook went so still for a second and it was as if someone was coloring him in with a red crayon before he finally nodded. "A-Aprobado, Taehyungie hermano mayor."

Jungkook turned to a deeper shade of red and decided it's probably time to actually move away to Latin America, while Taehyung laughed all the way to the store.

"This is Jin hyung's car." Taehyung pointed at a fancy blue car in the parking lot of the building they were walking into. It was fancy enough to say I come from money but too fancy to say I'm a pretentious asshole. Jungkook sure hopes Seokjin isn't the latter. Besides, he already took Jungkook in as delinquent number 3. That's gotta count for something. "I'll steal it sometime and take you on a ride." Taehyung was looking ahead as he said it, granting Jungkook privacy to smile like the fool Taehyung makes him feel he is.

The elevator ride was something else.

The younger's hands became sweatier and sweatier as they stepped into the cabin. He isn't exactly claustrophobic, not even close, but having Taehyung with him in a confined space was too much for his heart after everything they've been through the past few of hours. Suddenly, his mind began replaying every scene from every movie and TV show where the couple kissed during elevator rides. Like why is that even a thing? And why is his mind reminding him of it all right now when he can smell Taehyung's scent and feel his body heat.

The world really does hate Jungkook.

As soon as the elevator doors opened, he looked awkwardly at Taehyung then when Taehyung looked back, he looked away, only to look back a second later but Taehyung was already halfway out. Jungkook walked out after him and waited for the door Taehyung just rang its doorbell to open.

Jungkook didn't really know what he expected Jimin to be like but seeing him in front of him made him realize that he really shouldn't be intimidated by him. Or any of them. Jimin was shorter than him and had the warmest smile.

"Hola, Juankook." Jimin said with the same warm smile. Taehyung is right. He really is a gremlin.

"This isn't funny." Jungkook deadpanned.

"Really?" Jimin challenged. "Then why is Taehyung laughing?"

Jungkook turned fast to Taehyung, betrayed. He only caught half a glimpse of Taehyung suppressing his laughter before composing himself.

"He's right, Jimin. This isn't funny." Taehyung said to Jimin with a straight face. "Come in, Juankook. I mean Jungkook."

The interior of the apartment wasn't too fancy. It was simple and cosy, very wood-based. Something Jungkook would like to have someday. Not the wood-based part, but the simple, cosy apartment. The kitchen was open to the living room and it all just fit together nicely. It was kind of serene. That is until Jimin ruined it.

"Seokjin hyung!" Jimin yelled, drawling. "The sweethearts arrived."

"What? Sweathearts?" The panicked words came of Jungkook involuntary. Him and Taehyung...sweathearts?

"Separate." Taehyung said quickly, looking just as panicked as Jungkook. "He means separate sweethearts. You're a sweetheart. I'm a sweatheart...yeah."

Timely, someone came bursting through the corridor leading to further inside of the apartment and shifted their focus away from their flushed faces. The man that walked in was truly one of the most handsome men Jungkook has ever met.

"I came here as soon as I heard." He almost panted. Jungkook was thoroughly confused.

"You literally walked from the bedroom to the living room, hyung." Taehyung monotoned, looking like he's been through this countless of times.

"So," Jin winked suggestively and was suddenly joined by Jimin. "How'd it go?"

Jungkook's eyes widened. Is he really going to hear Taehyung's evaluation of their time together now? His heart is definitely not ready for the disappointment that will come. "The burgers were great. Thanks for asking." Taehyung dodged the question and Jungkook was immensely relieved but still a part of him was curious to hear the answer.

"Taehyung won't break." Jimin attempted to whisper to Jin but of the youngest could clearly hear it. "We have to try Jungkook."

Jungkook panicked. "T-Try what?"

"Ugh, I knew this would happen." Jungkook heard a low manly voice coming from the same way Jin had previously entered. "Give the boys a break."

The man with that voice came into view and Jungkook had no idea what came over him and he let out the dumbest giggle. That man.... That man was.... A man.

All of the heads in room turned to him at the sickly sweet sound he made and his entire body set aflame. But at the same time, he still had the urge to bow at 90 degree in front of Namjoon. What a man.

"Hi, Jungkook. Nice to meet you." Namjoon smiled, putting his dimples on full show. Dimples. It didn't take much time for Jungkook to discover he now has a man crush for sure.

"H-Hi." His hand was almost shaking as he extended it to shake Namjoon's hand. "Meet you nice too. N-No, I mean, y-you're nice to meet."

"It's nice to meet you too." Taehyung prompted him in a low voice beside him.

"Yes! Nice to meet you too."

Jin groaned. "Not you too. Stay away from Park Jimin. It appears like he has influenced you already."

"I haven't even done anything yet." Jimin demurred. "Speaking of, Namjoon hyung, this shirt," Jimin's chef's kiss had Jin smacking him on the head before he took a good look at Namjoon himself.

"He's right though." He said then give Taehyung a side hug. He really might be his favorite after all.

"I'm warning you, Kim Taehyung, if you burn my kitchen, I'm gonna take all your fancy paint brushes and shove them up your ass."

Or maybe not.

"It was one time." Taehyung exclaimed. "Besides, it isn't like Namjoon hyung hasn't done it before."

That perfect man can make mistakes? "It was one time too!" Namjoon defended himself.

"You set the food and the pan on fire."

"Just like you set my heart on fire, Namjoonie hyung." Jimin came walking towards Namjoon with a flirty look on his face but before he could pass by Taehyung, the latter turned his best friend the other direction.

"That's why you're my favorite." Jin told him before the doorbell rang. Jimin almost ran to get. Taehyung scoffed next to Jungkook and he only knew why when he Jimin opened the door to an aloof looking Yoongi then Hoseok behind him.

Jimin's eyes though seemed fixated on the platinum blond not-so-tall man next to his declared 'senpai'.

"Jimin, you have to say hi." Taehyung spoke slowly like he was talking to a toddler and wanted them to follow clearly.

"H-Hi." Jimin said in a small voice that the ones inside barely even heard.

"Why is he acting that way?" Jin nudged Taehyung that had Taehyung's shoulder bump into Jungkook's for a millisecond and Jungkook stomach did a swish thing that wasn't merciful on his heartbeat. "Is he...Is he nervous?"

"I believe he is." Taehyung smirked. "Hi, Yoongi hyung. It's nice to meet you."

"Hey. Nice to meet you too. Jungkook as well."

"Hi." Jungkook gave a wave of his hand still a bit in a trance of his contact with Taehyung. A lot has happened in a single day.

Hoseok and Namjoon greeted each other. It was their first time meeting as well. A chemistry exam and Jimin's bored self got them all here in the house of an aspiring actor and got Jungkook a step closer to his crush. He felt grateful for a moment as he looked at them.

But of course, the moment had to be ruined. "Seokie." Jin said, nose lifted, shoulders straight, clearly trying to look haughty. "Fancy seeing you here."

Hoseok looked around not knowing what to make out of the statement. "I..was invited here?"

"To steal my delinquent's love again?" Jin badgered. "After I worked so hard to regain it."

"You did literally nothi--" Taehyung tried to say before Jin cut him off.

"Zip it, dimwit." He muttered before turning to Hoseok again. "I will always be their favorite hyung. We will settle this once and for all."

Hoseok looked both intimidated and intrigued. "How?"

"A competition." Jin answered simply.

"A competition?" Hoseok repeated in question.

"You heard me." Jin challenged.

"Why don't you just make a vote?" Namjoon suggested. He's reasonable too. Looks, brains and dimples. A perfect man.

"Because I don't trust these headasses with anything. They'll sell me out for a cupcake and halfassed dance move."

"Yeah." Taehyung drawled. "That's why we'll sell you out."

"Yeah. Exactly." Jin agreed incredulously.

"What are we competing against?" Hoseok asked.

"They want to make cake, right? We'll split into 2 teams. The ones who think you're the better hyung and the ones who think I'm the very obviously better hyung."

"A cake comparison?" Namjoon asked. "It's a cake box mix. You can't judge the winner based on the taste."

"Oh, this is where you're wrong, honey." Jin explained. "It's not a taste test. 2 members of each team will go against each other for each step of making the cake. The measurements. The eggs. The whisking. The team with the best timing wins."

"That... actually sounds fun." Hoseok said. It's true.

"Doesn't it, Jimin?" Taehyung tried to make his very flustered best friend to say something. He's been silent and avoiding eye contact with Yoongi since he arrived.

"Y-Yes." Jimin said in a small voice and stuck further to Namjoon.

Nobody said a thing for a few seconds before Jin spoke. "This is entirely creepy to me. It's like he's possessed."

"He'll come around." Taehyung assured like he knew something the others didn't. It's sure he does.

"Okay, so," Jin clapped his hands once. "Let's split the teams. Delinquents! Assemble!"

"This isn't Endgame, hyung." Namjoon interjected. "Besides, one team will have an extra member. We're not even."

"Yeah." Jin agreed. "That's why someone has to be a judge."

"I volunteer." Namjoon and Yoongi said in unison. Namjoon was just a millisecond earlier. He shrugged at Yoongi. "Sorry, hyung, but I want nothing to do with this."

"What you mean is you want to be the judge to give me bonus points." Jin countered. This is how their relationship is like?

"I really don't know how I got myself into this." Yoongi groused.

"Y-You want to leave, Yoongi hyung?" Jimin asked, his body half-hidden behind Namjoon's arm as he clung to his sleeve.

Yoongi looked perplexed. Like he didn't know what's the right answer. "No, it's alright." He opted for the casual route.

Jimin stepped from behind Namjoon with a small smile. "Ok, that's good."

Silence again before Jin came closer to Taehyung to say something. "Wasn't he full-on flirting with him on the group chat? What is this now?"

"I think something happened when he saw him the other day." Taehyung whispered back. "Like... he cares now or something."

Jin gasped. "He upgraded."

Taehyung looked at Jin both weirded out and offended. "Hyung, we're not simulations in a game you're playing."

"Ok, delinquent." Jin dismissed him. "Now, back to the completion. We have to split the teams. Taehyung, Jimin, if you don't join my team, you're dead to me."

"Jungkook is obviously on mine." Hoseok pulled Jungkook towards him much to Jungkook's dismay. He wanted to stay closer to Taehyung. "Yoongi hyung, we just met but you're kinda forced to be on my side too."

Yoongi just went along with it and stood on Hoseok and Jungkook's side.

"So," Namjoon started. "How're we doing this?"
