Chapter 1: future best friend
back at it again with another got7 text fic, this time with some actual plot involved
hey there demons 
bambam: human-like beings that live on this planet!!!
bambam: guys come on, respond to me!!!!
bambam: give me your attention!!!!
Mark: what u want now
bambam: more attention please!!!!
JB: I'm here as well
Jinyoung: me too
jacks: yeah i'm here
bambam: guys there's a new student in my class
Jinyoung: ...is that seriously all you came to say??
Youngjae: ooh a new kid!
bambam: yes! :))
bambam: and i'm gonna be best friends with him!
JB: have you met him yet?
bambam: kinda? i mean he introduced himself to the class but we didn't really speak much
bambam: but he sits next to me, so we did talk a bit
jacks: omg okay
jacks: what are your first impressions
Mark: what a great first impression he must have made if the only thing u can say is that he's tall
bambam: shut up i'm not done
JB: mark, stop being sarcastic
JB: bambam, show respect to your hyung
bambam: ok fine
bambam: but back to my future best friend!
Youngjae: you can't know that bammie, you're not an oracle
jacks: no offense but why are you so set on befriending him
bambam: very funny youngjae hyung
bambam: but i just have this gut feeling about him
bambam: and also his smile is extremely cute
Jinyoung: are you sure you're looking for a friend and not, let's say, a boyfriend?
bambam: what? no! i've only known him for like an hour!
JB: yet you keep saying he's gonna be your best friend
bambam: okay whatever
bambam: i just know that i'm gonna be friends with him because i know that i wanna be friends with him
bambam: also, i have almost no normal friends :(
jacks: might have something to do with the fact that you're not normal yourself
bambam: excuse u
bambam: i'm offended
Jinyoung: you're literally a demon bammie
JB: so the new kid isn't anything supernatural?
bambam: at least nothing obvious
bambam: as in, i saw no tail and no fangs, but who knows
Mark: did u get his number
jacks: as if bambam would remember to ask for that
jacks: he'd be too busy talking his head off
bambam: actually, i did get his number
bambam: actually can i add him to this chat?
Youngjae: yeah that'd be fun :)
jacks: yeah sure
bambam: but don't mention any of your,.. special identities
bambam: i don't know how much he knows and i don't want us to be exposed
Mark: "special identities" lmao
Jinyoung: we won't say anything that could expose us
bambam: i mostly meant jackson, but thanks hyung
JB: no need to thank us
JB: it's our secret just as much as it is yours
JB: and who knows, maybe he already knows about supernatural beings and won't be scared off if he accidentally finds out
bambam: a boy can dream...
bambam: but i'm adding him now!
bambam has added Gyeom to hey there demons
bambam: it's me, bambam!
bambam: we sat next to each other in the class we just had!
Gyeom: yeah i remember, hi!
Gyeom: omg who are all these people
JB: Yugyeom, hi!
Gyeom: jaebum-hyung, is that you?
JB: Yes it is hahah
Gyeom: oh, hello hyung!
Gyeom: i guess i don't have to give you my number now lol
Jinyoung: wait, jb you know him?
JB: I mean I've met him
JB: he tried out for the dance team earlier this morning
jacks: ooh, did he make the team?
JB: this would be pretty awkward if he didn't
bambam: oh i didn't know you danced yugyeom!
Gyeom: uh yeah
Gyeom: but we met like an hour ago, so i don't think you should be surprised by not knowing stuff about me lol
Gyeom: but who are all these people?
bambam: oh they're my hyungs!
bambam: we're kinda like a squad since most of them go to our school
bambam: well, everyone except jinyoung hyung because he doesn't go to school
bambam: but we've all been friends for a few years
Gyeom: am i intruding?
Mark: no, you're fine
bambam: i mean, i'm the one who added you to the chat, and they all think it's okay for you to be here
bambam: so don't think we don't want you here!
bambam: and this way u can make some new friends :)
bambam: didn't the teacher say you just moved to korea from somewhere?
Gyeom: oh yeah, from saudi arabia
Gyeom: but before that i lived in america
jacks: oh, a traveler
JB: were you born in america?
Gyeom: no, i moved there when i was thirteen :)
Gyeom: before that i lived in korea
jacks: important question
jacks: how much money do u have?
Gyeom: 69 cents
jacks: oh, u know what that means!
Gyeom: i don't have enough money for chicken nuggets T-T
jacks: OMG HE KNOWS
bambam: i know we got seated next to each other for a reason!
bambam: aside from the fact that the seat next to me was empty but yknow what i mean
Jinyoung: ...what did i just witness
jacks: i know ur old but u gotta keep up with the culture!
Mark: they just quoted a vine jinyoung
Gyeom: oh is jinyoung the oldest?
bambam: he's actually third youngest
bambam: or, now that you're here, i guess he's exactly in the middle
Gyeom: oh okay
jacks: hyungs can we please keep this child? he knows vines
Gyeom: you barely know me though
Gyeom: also i'm still confused about who you guys are
Gyeom: right now you're just a bunch of names on my screen
Gyeom: well, aside from bambam and jb hyung
Jinyoung: he's already calling you hyung
JB: that's cause I said he could
JB: didn't really wanna be called sunbaenim
Mark: guys, maybe we should introduce ourselves
bambam: can we do it after class? we start in like a minute
Gyeom: yeah that'd be great
JB: sure, of course
JB: text when you're finished and we'll do that then
jacks: see you guys soon
JB: we're literally in the same class
jacks: i know
jacks: i was talking to the young beans
bambam: oh, yugyeom! youngjae is actually in our class as well!
bambam: i'll introduce you to him right now!
Gyeom: thank you so much
bambam: it's really no problem
Youngjae: see u guys in a bit
Jinyoung: put your phones away and focus on school
bambam: yes mom
Chapter 2: we're all crackheads here
maybe i should focus on the text fic i already have but nope i'm starting a new one instead
hey there demons 
bambam: wait it's lunch
bambam: yugyeom where did u disappear?
Mark: maybe you wanna join us for lunch yugyeom?
Gyeom: bambam i just went to the bathroom lol
Gyeom: also i can't have lunch with you today, i already promised some other people i'd eat with them, sorry :(
bambam: wait how can u have friends here already
bambam: thought you just moved here
Gyeom: actually,.. that's a really complicated question
Gyeom: basically i have friends in america that have friends in korea that i used to be friends with as a kid
JB: uuh, okay
jacks: makes no sense but sure
Youngjae: maybe another day?
Gyeom: sure hyung :)
Jinyoung: he calls you hyung now too?
Youngjae: i mean, yeah
Youngjae: we're in the same class so i've met him now
JB: why didn't you say that when bambam told us about the new kid then?
JB: weren't u there when the teacher introduced him
Youngjae: being supposed to be there and actually being there is not the same thing
Jinyoung: were you late to school or were you asleep at your desk?
Mark: have a nice lunch yugyeom! i hope we get to meet you soon
Gyeom: yeah you too, and me too
Gyeom: wait that made no sense
Gyeom: i meant you too as in you have a nice lunch as well, and me too as in i also want to meet you soon
Jinyoung: that was confusing, but nice
bambam: okay creatures that are having lunch with me
bambam: are you guys already at our table??
JB: hang on, weren't we gonna do introductions?
bambam: oh yeah!
bambam: yugyeom, are you still here?
bambam: great! then we'll do that quick
bambam: should we do it in age order?
jinyoung: which one?
JB: ...the one in age order, where we go in order of age?
Jinyoung: yeah, sure
Gyeom: lol what's so confusing about age order? it's not like that can mean different things
jacks: yeah lol
jacks: mark hyung, you're first
Mark: hey yugyeom! i'm mark, i'm a senior
Mark: guys what else am i supposed to say
jacks: that's too short
jacks: tell him one of your hobbies or smth
Mark: and i guess i like gaming
Mark: also, i used to live in america, so i guess we can relate to each other about that
Gyeom: you did? that's so cool! were u born there?
Mark: yeah, i was
Gyeom: cool! i only lived there for about two and a half years, but i still miss it
Mark: yeah, so do i
Mark: most of my family is still there
Gyeom: that must be hard, to live so far away from them
Mark: but i have a family here, so i don't miss it too much
Mark: i came to korea almost three years ago and became friends with these guys almost immediately
Mark: having friends made it a lot easier
Gyeom: i feel you
bambam: good thing you're in this chat then yugyeom!
JB: fair warning though
JB: what you've seen so far has probably been their best behavior in years
JB: they're usually a lot less civilized
Jinyoung: that is very true
Jinyoung: expect this chat to blow up at random times during the day for the most stupidest reasons
Youngjae: yeah, we're all crackheads here
bambam: we've been surprisingly normal today guys
bambam: we should celebrate that by eating dinner backwards tonight!
Gyeom: oh do you guys live together?
jacks: yes and no
JB: none of us live at home, but we don't live together all six of us in one house
JB: we have two houses between us, and both houses are on the same street, so it's almost like we do
Mark: me and jinyoung live in one house while the other four live right next door
Mark: but everyone spends the night in other people's rooms so many times that it's hard to know who actually lives where
Gyeom: that sounds fun!
jacks: it is! at least most of the time
Jinyoung: guys could you get on with the introductions?
Jinyoung: i need to go grocery shopping but i don't wanna miss my turn
Mark: it's jb's turn now
JB: okay yugyeom
JB: you kind of know me already
JB: my name is Im Jaebum, a lot of people call me JB, I'm the leader of the dance team and I'm a senior
JB: I don't have much more to say
jacks: i can add that hyung has three moods:
jacks: dancing, studying or sleeping
bambam: lmao that's accurate
Gyeom: nice introduction
jacks: OH IT'S MY TURN NOW!
jacks: my names jackson wang and i'm from china, i'm a senior, and i love fencing
Gyeom: so u like poking people with sticks
Jinyoung: HAHAH, i like this one
jacks: i am OFFENDED
jacks: i still like u because u know memes, but you're on thin ice yugyeom
Mark: i think we should move on
Jinyoung: my name is obviously jinyoung, i don't go to school, and i'm 112 years old
Jinyoung: also this group has six collective braincells that we share and i'm usually the one who has them
Jinyoung: so if you need someone to be logical, you should come to me and never trust the other ones at all
Gyeom: i'll keep that in mind
Jinyoung: okay, now the next one can go
Youngjae: hello i'm youngjae! ^.^ but you already sort of know me cause we met
Youngjae: you already know what year i'm in, so i don't have to tell you that
Youngjae: but i guess my hobby is sleeping
jacks: don't forget singing
bambam: yeah, he's always doing vocal practice so much that i almost cry as soon as he opens his mouth
Youngjae: excuse you
bambam: and that was a joke but you get my point
JB: bambam, only your introduction left
bambam: well yugyeom, you already know me
JB: wait what does that mean
bambam: it stands for future best friend!
jacks: ohmygod bammie have u already corrupted the new child?
Jinyoung: seems to me like you have
Mark: cause you just called him your future best friend
Mark: that's what he called you before he added you to this chat
Gyeom: oh, i didn't know that
Gyeom: but he had only talked to me for like five minutes when he added me here?
jacks: we know
jacks: but bambam makes friends easily and doesn't understand that other people may not consider you friends when you've literally just met
jacks: also, didn't u just call him your future best friend?
Gyeom: i mean,.. u have a point
bambam: yugyeom are you my hyung? when's your birthday?
Youngjae: actually that's a good question since we're all in the same year
Gyeom: i think i skipped a grade?
Gyeom: cause i was born in november so i'm younger than all of you
JB: oh we have a new maknae
bambam: lol, the enthusiasm is real
Gyeom: okay but i'm not really your maknae cause i still don't really know you guys
Mark: give it a week
Mark: everyone shares way too much information in this group
Mark: you're gonna know everything about everyone in no time
Youngjae: i wish i could say he exaggerated, but it's true
jacks: lmao good luck to u gyeom
Gyeom: thanks? i guess?
Jinyoung: okay could we at least try to be nice? maybe
Jinyoung: let's not overwhelm the poor kid
bambam: but i still think we should have backwards dinner tonight
JB: ...and the crackhead is out
Chapter 3: SQUARE UP
yugyeom's getting used to their personalities
hey there demons 
bambam: it's another beautiful day to leave my food the fuck alone!
Mark: i feel like this isn't something i wanna witness
Jinyoung: same, i'm just gonna mute this and leave my phone
Mark: good idea
JB: bambam, what's up with your food?
bambam: i left my apple slices in the fridge! in a box marked with BAMBAM'S FOOD DON'T TRY IT BITCH
bambam: and now, there are no apple in there
bambam: apple gone
bambam: fruit missing
bambam: i am OUTRAGED!!!
Gyeom: why don't you just get some new apple?
bambam: JACK I KNOW YOU STOLE IT!!!!!
jacks: YOU DON'T KNOW THAT!
Gyeom: who dat?
JB: it me.
Gyeom: k lol
JB: what the fuck bambam
bambam: knew it'd get your attention lmao
bambam: but hyung, jackson stole my food!
jacks: you don't know that!
bambam: well you're not denying it!
jacks: well i'm not confirming it either!
JB: jackson, you shouldn't steal people's food
JB: bambam, yelling at jackson won't bring your food back
JB: on the other hand, jackson you should apologize
jacks: sorry bam
jacks: OMG WHY CAN'T YOU ACCEPT THE FRICKIN APOLOGY
bambam: SQUARE THE FUCK UP BITCH
bambam: COME TO THE KITCHEN
bambam: IF U DARE
jacks: FUCK U
jacks: PREPARE TO BE STOPPED!!
Gyeom: are they always like this?
JB: sadly, yes
Mark: well gyeom, now you know what usually happens in this chat
Gyeom: you guys are funny
Jinyoung: you may think so now, but just wait..
Chapter 4: you're not my dad
featuring yet another vine reference
oh and two other kpop groups are mentioned/show up
(See the end of the chapter for more notes.)
hey there demons 
bambam: i meant what i said
Gyeom: i'm not gay
jacks: omg are you gonna be our token straight guy??
Gyeom: no i'm bi lol
bambam: i called on you for a reason!
Mark: you mean an actual reason?
Jinyoung: besides annoying us?
bambam: honestly hyung
bambam: fuck u
JB: kids, be nice
Gyeom: you're not my dad
jacks: ugly ass fuckin noodle head
Youngjae: guys it's a vine
Youngjae: don't be offended
JB: ok bambam what did you wanna say
bambam: i just wanted to tell you that chan is back in korea
Jinyoung: he went to australia, right?
Gyeom: oh wow the enthusiasm is real
Youngjae: yeah lol
spooky bois 
bambam added Mark, JB and 3 others to spooky bois
bambam: hence the new chat
jacks: does this have to do with chan being back from australia?
bambam: he told me had heard about another korean coven being targeted by some demon?
bambam: apparently one of the members of chan's coven knows a member of this other coven
bambam: i don't know why they were being targeted though
JB: wait, what are you saying?
jacks: is chan's coven being targeted by a demon???
bambam: no, one of their friend covens is!
bambam: or idk if it's still going on
Mark: and you said it's a korean coven?
bambam: but i don't think they're currently in korea?
Youngjae: wow bam, you really have all the details
JB: was chan worried that the demon would be targeting other covens?
bambam: i dunno
bambam: i'm just relaying information
Mark: was there really no reason why they were being targeted?
bambam: not that chan knew of
jacks: and you said they're not in korea? what's their name?
bambam: not sure what country they're in, but they're korean
JB: and they're being targeted by a demon for seemingly no reason?
bambam: chan seemed worried about it, that's why i'm telling you
bambam: i don't even think ateez are a full coven
Youngjae: should we be worried?
JB: there's no reason for us to worry right now
JB: we have too little information to even be discussing this right now
JB: i'll ask chan more about it next time i see him
JB: until then, none of you have to worry about this
bambam: k great
jacks: bye guys
san: omg gyeom hyung you have to tell us about it later!!!
san: we have practice in like five mins, so text in like an hour??
Gyeom: yeah sure
Gyeom: so, uh, have things cleared up over there?
HongJoong: we haven't seen him since you left, so i think we're safe now :)
Gyeom: i hate that you were all in danger
san: don't even worry about it! we know how to deal with demons!
wooyoung: we really don't but ok
san: okay but you have to admit hongjoong hyung did pretty well
wooyoung: he's a warlock, what else did u expect?
HongJoong: okay guys, get off your phones and go to practice
HongJoong: and gyeom, it's so good to hear from you
HongJoong: we're all still a bit sad that you had to leave so suddenly :(
Gyeom: don't worry about me joong, i'm used to it now
HongJoong: i wish you weren't
Gyeom: at least i seem to be making friends over here :)
HongJoong: that's great ^-^
HongJoong: talk to you later?
Gyeom: sure, talk to you later!
oof, plot. stray kids and ateez will show up again but they're not very important, they'll mostly be mentioned so don't worry if you don't know them!
Chapter 5: third favorite farm animal
i spontaneously dyed my own hair purple yesterday because i have no impulse control! yay! love it!
hey there demons 
bambam: what is your third favorite farm animal?
Mark: you have to stop asking people that
Jinyoung: also it's 1 am
bambam: well it's an important question
bambam: i'm just trying to get to know the guy!
Jinyoung: at one am?
Mark: by asking for his third favorite farm animal?
bambam: well, when you put it that way...
bambam: omg why
Gyeom: just because
Gyeom: i don't really have a reason
Gyeom: but chickens are first, then cows, then horses
bambam: i think i would switch cows and horses, but otherwise i agree with you
Jinyoung: i'm so jealous that the others get to sleep through this shit
Gyeom: why don't you just go to bed hyung? ^-^
Jinyoung: oh i'm not tired
Gyeom: ah okay, i guess i saw you more as a morning than a night person
Jinyoung: oh yeah
Jinyoung: i'm a little mix of both
Jinyoung: but the rest of you should go to bed!
bambam: but mooom
Mark: "no buts"
Jinyoung: no buts!
Jinyoung: mark already said it
Mark: lmao yeah, i know you too well
bambam: okay then bye guys
Gyeom: goodnight everyone ( ◠‿◠ )
Jinyoung: night yugyeom!
spooky bois 
Jinyoung: WHICH ONE??? WHERE IS HE??
jacks: he's in the living room and crying because he saw a dead bird this morning
Jinyoung: ...i'm coming
Jinyoung: but also i'm not his parent
JB: the fact that you're his emergency contact and used to go to all his school's parent meetings say otherwise
bambam: wait why is this happening in this gc and not the "hey there demons" one???
jacks: i just assumed youngjae crying had to do with him being what he is
jacks: or that someone would say something about how jinyoung raised youngjae, which wouldn't make sense if u don't know what jinyoung is
JB: well, you're the one who brought that up
Youngjae: I'M NOT CRYING I JUST GOT SAD CAUSE I USED TO KNOW THAT BIRD
jacks: since when do u have animal friends??
Youngjae: since always!!!!!
Jinyoung: youngjae-ah, i'm coming to you
JB: at least someone in this group is nice
bambam: i breathed????¿??
Jinyoung: well i didn't
bambam: i hate that you're telling the truth
jacks: rip in peace jinyoung's breathing, 1907-1925
jacks: but also i have a question
jacks: bambam are you interested in anyone
bambam: no wtf
JB: where is this coming from?
jacks: but i didn't ask if you had a crush, just if you were interested in anyone
jacks: cause i think you definitely are
bambam: omg stop pushing your gay agenda onto me!
Jinyoung: so you didn't text yugyeom last night at one am?
bambam: you were all there, you saw it
bambam: or well you weren't there but you're all in the chat so you probs saw it this morning
Mark: i think jinyoung is talking about how you and yugyeom kept texting for like an hour after you said you were going to bed
bambam: who said i did that??
Jinyoung: mark hyung did
Mark: bambam, you're not sneaky
bambam: and here i was thinking i had gotten away with it
bambam: fine! maybe yugyeom is kinda cute and kinda funny and i kinda consider him my friend even though we only met this week
bambam: but it's not like i think about him at night or anything
JB: you texted him at one am?
bambam: ok but it's not like i'm in love or anything
bambam: we haven't known each other long enough
jacks: so you're saying there's a chance you're going to fall in love with him???
Youngjae: wow i can't believe you're having this conversation before 8 in the morning
bambam: oh shit i have school!
Jinyoung: you all do
jacks: oh crap we should go
Mark: bold of you to assume i haven't already left the house
hey there demons 
JB: i just wanted to tell you that i now have a new Son
Jinyoung: jaebum, you can't just go around adopting kids
JB: isn't that what you did with youngjae and bambam?
Jinyoung: ...that's fair
Mark: lol where did this come from?
jacks: who'd u adopt??
JB: his name is Yugyeom, aka Gyoemie
JB: he is now your younger brother
Youngjae: wait when did you meet him??
JB: we have dance practice right now and he is Talented
JB: he is also an absolute Angel
Mark: lol wut
JB: i mean it's not like i thought he was impolite or anything, but this??
JB: it is the behavior of an Angel
Jinyoung: if you're in dance practice, then why are you on your phone?
JB: break time
jacks: then why isn't bambam on his phone lmao
JB: he's preoccupied with yugyeom
jacks: damn, already??
JB: not like that you perv
JB: they're just joking with each other
JB: but yugyeom is really nice and he's also cute
JB: i literally just called him my son so don't you dare think i mean anything else you little shits
Mark: little shit?
Mark: i could literally invert your organs
JB: don't say that in this group chat!!
jacks: why?? it's not like he outright said that he can do magic
Jinyoung: well now you've done it
Youngjae: don't worry guys we'll just spam the chat
Youngjae: yugyeom doesn't scroll up
JB: i still think you're all little shits
Mark: i will melt your teeth and put them in a smoothie
Mark: and it will be Organic
jacks: hyung wtf
Youngjae: now we know who makes the best threats
Jinyoung: the scariest part is that i don't doubt that he could actually do that
Mark: emotionally? i could never
Mark: but i mean i have the power to do it
JB: okay, break's almost over
Jinyoung: go back to your dancers then
JB: they're not MY dancers
Jinyoung: oh? so you're not the leader then?
JB: i never said that
jacks: omg hyung just go back to them
spooky bois 
Youngjae: say that to him instead of us lol
Jinyoung: no that's weird
Jinyoung: he's only gone to your school for three days, it's too soon
Jinyoung: i mean he's still settling in
jacks: i mean... i wanna meet him too
Mark: i agree with jinyoung
Mark: we could talk to him through the gc for a little longer
bambam: why are you talking about my new friend like this?
jacks: read our messages?
bambam: lmao i did
bambam: just wondering why everyone is so interested in meeting someone they know essentally nothing about
bambam: fuck off
Jinyoung: be nice
Mark: that's actually why i want to meet him
Mark: you, youngjae and jb also know essentially nothing about him, yet you all seem pretty fond of him already
jacks: hyung actually makes a good point
Youngjae: well he's just super pleasant to be around?
Youngjae: and most people at school don't talk to us cause we always keep to ourselves
Youngjae: which is nice and all,
Youngjae: but that makes it hard to meet new people
bambam: that's true
bambam: everyone knows we're a close group so no one really tries to talk to any of us
Mark: you sure yugyeom's not a siren who's just enchanted you all to like him so much?
bambam: i think i would have noticed if someone was enchanting me hyung
bambam: give me more credit than that
Mark: i didn't mean to offend you
Mark: but some creatures can do it in a really subtle way, sometimes they don't even notice it themselves
jacks: hyung has a point
Youngjae: i don't think yugyeom is anything supernatural
JB: but if we really wanted to find out, i guess he could meet mark hyung
Jinyoung: cause mark would be able to sense it from his aura, right?
Mark: yea i would
bambam: great, then you can have lunch with me and yugyeom tomorrow
bambam: no one else is invited
bambam: cause i don't want to overwhelm him
jacks: okay, valid point
Mark: then i guess i'm having lunch with bambam and his new friend tomorrow
bambam: i guess so
got6 have never been good with their secret identities, but they don't really have human friends so it hasn't really mattered before, which is why they are being so obvious in the group chat
also don't ask how my brain came up with the sentence "i will melt your teeth and put them in a smoothie and it will be Organic" because i honestly do not know
and lastly, my uploading schedule for this story! i actually have one for once. my plan is to post 3 parts every week (but not on any specific day cause i could never stick to that lmao)
Chapter 7: lunch dates
i have so many pre-written chapters so i think i'm gonna do a double update on saturday. or it might happen late at night on sunday cause as soon as i don't have school i forget what day it is lol
bambam -> Gyeom [private chat]
bambam: how would you feel about having lunch with me and one of my friends today?
Gyeom: oh, is it someone from the group chat?
bambam: yeah! mark hyung!
bambam: he's the oldest and he's not as intense to be around as some of the others
bambam: so i just thought it would be easier to meet him before jackson or jinyoung
bambam: and meeting everyone could be kinda overwhelming
Gyeom: yeah, i guess that's true
bambam: i forgot to mention that this is because they all want to meet you
Gyeom: no pressure or anything lol
bambam: but you can say no if you want to
bambam: i get that everything is still pretty new here and we're not exactly the most calm group of people to get to know
Gyeom: oh no it's fine!
Gyeom: tbh, i don't think i've ever had calm friends
Gyeom: i wouldn't know how to act
bambam: oh? are you talking about your friends from america?
Gyeom: and the ones from saudi arabia
Gyeom: even though we were all originally from korea
bambam: you had korean friends in saudi arabia??
Gyeom: well, i was actually there with a dance team
Gyeom: there were nine of us that moved there to train for a year
Gyeom: we were all korean and had auditioned to be there
bambam: wait, were you in a company?? like an idol company???
Gyeom: yeah lol
Gyeom: but we weren't training to be idols, just dancers
bambam: what the actual, that's so cool!
Gyeom: yeah i suppose it is
bambam: wait are you still with them? then why did you move to our high school?
Gyeom: no, i had to leave the group a few weeks ago and that's when i came to korea
Gyeom: they've still in saudi arabia but they only have a month more of training before coming back
bambam: if it's not too rude to ask, why did you leave?
bambam: it sounds as if you liked the group, and i already know that you love dancing
bambam: so why stop?
Gyeom: family problems i guess?
bambam: you guess?
Gyeom: hahha it's hard to explain without getting all deep and personal
Gyeom: but yeah, i couldn't stay because of certain people in my family
bambam: that's too bad..,
bambam: i hope things work out between you and your family
Gyeom: so do i..
bambam -> Mark [private chat]
Mark: never call me that again
bambam: why not my dude?
bambam: don't you like it my dude?
Mark: thanks for letting me know about lunch but i will literally block you if you continue
bambam: don't you like it..,
bambam: my dude?
bambam: seriously my dude
bambam: respond to me
bambam: my dude?
bambam: ...my dUDE???
You can no longer send messages to this person.
bambam: i DiD iT AgAiN
hey there demons 
bambam: i have news for you!
JB: did you just call us fuckers?
Jinyoung: immediately after calling us your family??
bambam: okay hyungs that was a long time ago let's move on to the news
Jinyoung: it was less than a minute ago?
bambam: practically AN ETERNITY to me
bambam: oh and someone should tell mark hyung to unblock me cause i need to ask where i'm meeting him
JB: he blocked you?
bambam: is that not what i just said
bambam: but that's not important
bambam: what i came here to tell you is that i'm having lunch!
bambam: okay i get that you might not be excited for lunch, but i am
bambam: so please let me be EXCITED about giving my body some NUTRITIENTS!!!
JB: it's nutrients
bambam: oh whatever
Jinyoung: how tf did you spell carbohydrates right but got nutrients wrong??
bambam: you see, it all started when FUCK OFF OKAY LEAVE ME ALONE OKAY
bambam: everyone makes mistakes and i wish you would accept mine
JB: we do accept your mistakes
JB: but we also love to point them out to tease you
Youngjae: in the most loving way we can
bambam: this doesn't feel very loving? like at all?
Jinyoung: yeah, it can easily be mistaken as us being mean
Jinyoung: though that's up for interpretation
Youngjae: no it's not
Youngjae: we always do it with good intentions
Jinyoung: or at least arguably nice intentions
bambam: there's no winning this, is there
Youngjae: there never is
bambam: well i've said what i came to say
bambam: so you suckers (and in jinyoung's case i mean that literally) can stick to this group chat while i have lunch with my new friend!
JB: STOP MAKING JOKES ABOUT SUCKING IN THIS CHRISTIAN GC
jacks: we're all atheists but ok
Youngjae: as far as religion go, that's debatable...
jacks: knowing that the devil exists isn't the same as having a religion
Youngjae: true true
JB: keep this type of discussion out of this gc before i kick you all out
Youngjae: okay dad
Jinyoung: bambam leaves and so you think you're fine, but then these crackheads come out
Jinyoung: if i could i would leave this group but then i remember my emotional attachment and i'm like
Jinyoung: "dammit, why'd i have to go get attached for?? seriously, what was the reason??"
Mark: i relate
hey there demons 
Gyeom: this is not the chat i meant to send that to
jacks: omfg this child is funny
jacks: hyungs can we keep him???
JB: jackson, it doesn't work like that
JB: don't say a word about whatever you're thinking about
Jinyoung: i wasn't going to
Jinyoung: and i definitely wasn't going to mention what you said yesterday about adopting random children
Gyeom: all i said was thirstday and now i'm being adopted??
Jinyoung: no, cause it's not legal
JB: what does legality matter?
JB: yugyeom, you are now my Child
Mark: jb you can't just say that, you'll scare him away
Gyeom: oh no it's fine, my real parents are never with me so like, feel free to adopt me hahah
Jinyoung: ...i retract my previous statements
Jinyoung: congratulations yugyeom, i am now your mother
bambam: what do you mean your parents are never with you?
Youngjae: yeah, don't you live with them?
Gyeom: my dad is a dick so i haven't seen him since i was like a year old
Gyeom: i don't really remember the guy to be honest
Gyeom: and i live alone, but my mom visits like once every year so i'm not entirely on my own
Mark: "visits once every year" sounds kinda like you're on your own to me
JB: welp i guess i have no choice but to adopt you then
JB: we normally have family dinners every friday but consider you haven't even met all of us yet i think we'd freak you out
jacks: i take offense at that
Jinyoung: good, cause you should
Youngjae: omf that's brutal
JB: buuut i guess since i'll see you in dance practice, you'll be able to get to know me better
JB: well, me and bambam
JB: and youngjae since he's in your regular classes
Gyeom: so what you're saying is i have no choice but to get to know you guys since you're around me all the time?
Mark: yea basically
jacks: and since we're a package deal you're gonna get to know the rest of us too
jacks: even if it's only through a group chat
jacks: at least for right now
Youngjae: we're like a "buy one, get five free" kinda group
Gyeom: oml i love that
JB: an Angel
bambam: did you completely miss that he just wrote thirstday??
bambam: what kind of angel do you think says that??
jacks: a fallen one
Gyeom: oh you mean like a demon
jacks: yup lol
Gyeom: lmao i appreciate those kind words
JB: no, i wasn't calling him a demon!
JB: why tf would i do that
JB: not that there's anything wrong with being a demon, of course
JB: i was just calling him an angel
Gyeom: lol i love how accurate both those words are
jacks: yugyeom you're not a demon
Gyeom: yeah okay lol
jacks: are you a demon?
Gyeom: why are you so serious suddenly
JB: AND CUT
JB: well done everybody we got everything we needed now go do something else
Mark: you can't just cut a conversation like you cut a movie scene
JB: is that not what i just did
Youngjae: class started a few minutes ago so we really shouldn't be on our phones
Jinyoung: ffs jaebum why didn't you say something??!?
JB: i'm obviously also on my phone
JB: it would be hypocritical to tell the others to stop when i'm doing the same thing
Jinyoung: everyone put your phone away now or i will steal them from you when you sleep tonight
bambam: suddenly i have no phone
bambam: bye hyung!
Youngjae: lol i can see bambam practically throwing his phone into his bag
Jinyoung: that better be your last message in this chat within this next hour youngjae-ah
Mark: you don't get to tell me to put my phone away
Jinyoung: i'm older than you
Mark: that's debatable
Jinyoung: okay fuck
Jinyoung: just don't text in this gc while everyone's in class
Jinyoung: everyone is gone
jacks: lmao u thought
Jinyoung: JACKSON WANG, THAT'S IT
Jinyoung: YOU'RE EATING NO MEET FOR THE REST OF THE WEEK
jacks: oh crap
- bambam's joke about sucking is not a sex joke, it's about jinyoung being a vampire
- jackson is a werewolf which is why eating no meat would suck for him
- yugyeom talks about his family! this is important. *mickey mouse voice* it's a surprise tool that will help us later!
next chapter should already be up by the time anyone reads this :)
hey there demons 
bambam: I AM SCARED
Jinyoung: wait what's this, what's going on?
JB: what's wrong with yugyeom?
Youngjae: he wasn't in class today
Youngjae: i suppose he's sick but bambam's being dramatic
bambam: MY ONLY FRIEND
Gyeom: uh, hey hahah
JB: hi yugyeom!
JB: not to sound like bambam but why aren't you in school?
Gyeom: oh, i'm just sick
Gyeom: i'll be back on monday!
bambam: IT's FRIDAY today
bambam: MONDAY IS AN ETERNITY FROM NOW!!!
bambam: but also, i hope you feel better soon!
Mark: bambam, i have a revolutionary idea
Mark: they're called phones
Mark: you can use them to communicate
Mark: so you don't have to keep wailing about missing yugyeom
Mark: you can talk to him everyday until he comes back to school
Mark: isn't that neat?
bambam: hyung i know what phones are
JB: then why are you being so dramatic about this
bambam: dramatic? ME???
bambam: i don't think so
jacks: have a nice time living in denial!
bambam: thanks hyung!
bambam: wait no
Jinyoung: hang on, aren't you guys supposed to be in class right now?
Mark: starts in like a minute
Jinyoung: then get away from here!
bambam: lol yes hyung
Jinyoung -> Gyeom [private chat]
Gyeom: hey hyung
Gyeom: yeah i know who you are hehe
Jinyoung: how are you feeling?
Gyeom: it's just a cold, nothing serious, i just don't want to get others sick by being in school
Jinyoung: so i guess this might be a weird thing to ask, but do you want me to bring over some food?
Jinyoung: i don't even have to stick around if you don't want me to
Jinyoung: but i remember you saying that you live on your own so i just want to make sure that you'll be fine today
Gyeom: no! you really don't have to bother! i really will be fine!
Gyeom: also, not to sound rude but don't you have somewhere to be during the days?
Jinyoung: yes i usually have work but not today
Gyeom: ah okay
Gyeom: but you really don't have to do anything for me!
Gyeom: besides, i have very nice neighbors that know about my situation and they said they were gonna bring me food today
Gyeom: so i think i'll be okay
Jinyoung: are you sure?
Gyeom: yes, positive
Gyeom: but thanks for offering, it means a lot even though you don't know me hahaha
Jinyoung: whether you know it or not, you already have bambam and jb wrapped around your finger
Jinyoung: also i said yesterday that i adopted you so i have to live up to that role now
Gyeom: lol okay
wow a chat without bambam? sounds fake.
also yugyeom isn't actually sick but that won't be revealed for a long ass time so i'm sharing it here instead lol
next update will be on monday!
hey there demons 
Mark: yes we are aware
bambam: yugyeom hasn't said anything in this chat for two whole days!!!
bambam: what if he's decided that he doesn't wanna be friends with us?
bambam: or what if
spooky bois 
bambam: he figured out what we are and decided to avoid us?
JB: nvm, i just read the other chat
JB: and i don't think he knows what we are
bambam: but what if he does though? i mean, we've left a lot of clues
bambam: not that he ever scrolls up in the gc lmao
JB: if he somehow knows about us, then we'll deal with that
Jinyoung: chill out a bit, child
Jinyoung: if he did see the weird messages, he would almost definitely think it's a joke
jacks: unless he's also a supernatural creature
Mark: no, i don't think he is
Mark: i would've picked up on that when we met at lunch
jacks: okay, so he's human
Jinyoung: and unless he knows about supernatural creatures existing, then he'll just think we're joking
JB: and if he does know about the supernatural, then his first reaction probably wouldn't be to run away
Mark: that depends on what experience he has with it though
JB: okay, you're right, but i don't think he has been ignoring us
JB: if he really was running away from us, then he'd have left the chat, which he hasn't
JB: i think he's just been busy this weekend
Jinyoung: or he might have been resting since, yknow, he said he's sick
bambam: yeah, i guess that makes more sense ahahha
Youngjae: if you're really worried, you could just go private chat and ask how he's feeling or smth
jacks: yeah, he'd probably respond to that
bambam: oh, good idea!!
bambam: thank you hyungs!
bambam -> Gyeom [private chat]
bambam: you haven't said anything in the gc so i just wanted to make sure you're okay
bambam: okay i guess you'll reply when you see this
bambam: i hope you're okay
Gyeom: i was out and forgot my phone at home
Gyeom: but yeah, i'm feeling a lot better, thank you for asking ^.^
bambam: wHY ARE YOU AWAKE
Gyeom: ??? you're awake too
bambam: oh lol yeah i guess you got me there
bambam: but we have school tomorrow!
bambam: or i guess technically it's today, but yknow it's whatever
Gyeom: yeah so why aren't you asleep right now?
bambam: why aren't you?
Gyeom: i literally started this conversation by saying that i was out
Gyeom: i got home like ten minutes ago
bambam: wHY were you out that late??!
Gyeom: lol what are you my mother?
bambam: no but jinyoung is and i won't hesitate to tell him
Gyeom: so what if you do? it's not like i'm scared of him or anything
bambam: here i go, pulling up his contact...
Gyeom: okay i was kidding please don't tell him!
bambam: lmao, i won't
Gyeom: are you going to sleep then?
bambam: are you?
Gyeom: only if you are
bambam: then i guess i am
Gyeom: good night bambam!
bambam: good night yugyeom
bambam: see you tomorrow?
Gyeom: see you ^-^
next chapter will be on wednesday, and introduces some boy scouts :))
hey there demons 
JB: maybe cause we don't know him?
Jinyoung: you're the only one who does jackson
Youngjae: how did you find out?
jacks: i had to find out through an INSTAGRAM POST of all things!
jacks: this is peak betrayal
jacks: namjoon is officially not on my friend list
JB: then why aren't you messaging him instead of us?
jacks: i have but he hasn't responded and i need to get out my anger
bambam: go poke some people or whatever it is you normally do
jacks: POKE some people??!??!?
jacks: bambam, it's called FENCING and it's a TOUGH SPORT
jacks: not just a nice little poke with a stick!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Gyeom: wait you know namjoon hyung?
JB: wait what
jacks: hang on how do YOU know him yugyeom??
Gyeom: are we even talking about the same person
Gyeom: does your namjoon live in america?
jacks: omg yes he does! but he's currently in korea!
jacks: kim namjoon? moved to the us like four years ago?
Gyeom: yeah, he went to my old school there! we were in the same friend group!
jacks: omg what
jacks: did you know that he's in korea right now?? or am i the only betrayed one
Gyeom: uh yeah i kinda knew that
Gyeom: he's the one i hung out with last night
Youngjae: is the rest of your friend group also in korea right now?
Gyeom: nah not anymore
jacks: this betrayal just gets worse and worse
jacks: hang on a sec
spooky bois 
jacks: you know that namjoon's friend group is a coven, right??
jacks: cause yugyeom just said that he's part of namjoon's friend group
Mark: yugyeom is still human though
Jinyoung: yeah, mark already checked with his powers that he is
jacks: ok, maybe yugyeom's human but i think he knows about the supernatural
Youngjae: isn't namjoon an oracle?
Youngjae: they don't really have any quirks that would expose them
Youngjae: yugyeom might not know about him
bambam: but yugyeom said he was in their friendship group
bambam: namjoon's friends are different creatures, not just oracles
Mark: everyone here realizes that the only way to find out is either by asking yugyeom, or if he exposes himself? right?
Jinyoung: mark is right, this discussion is unnecessary
Jinyoung: we won't know unless we ask
Youngjae: or unless he exposes himself
jacks: well whatever
hey there demons 
jacks: i now only have five and a half friends
Jinyoung: did you only have six friends before?
Youngjae: i guess it used to be us five + namjoon hyung
JB: who's the half friend?
Gyeom: is it me??
jacks: yes it is lol
jacks: oh hang on namjoon just texted me
Youngjae: watch him make a 180 and take back namjoon as his friend
jacks: he asked if i want to meet him!
jacks: sorry guys but i'll be busy after school today
bambam: i thought he wasn't your friend anymore??
jacks: oh no he's back on my friend list now
jacks: i mean, he said he'd buy me food
Youngjae: oh a dinner date
jacks: uh, no
jacks: i'm more attracted to the food than to namjoon
jacks: it's definitely not a date
bambam: wow, you're really pushing the anti-gay agenda here
jacks: i'm pushing the aroace agenda!!!
Gyeom: no romantic or sexual attraction, just food
jacks: lmao he catches on so quick
Gyeom: and it's not like it could be a date anyway
Gyeom: i mean, namjoon hyung has a boyfriend
Jinyoung: oh hell no i'm leaving
Youngjae: an explosion is about to happen
JB: bye guys it has been nice knowing you
jacks: He has a WHAT NOW
jacks: THE BETRAYAL
jacks: THE HEARTBREAK
jacks: THE COMPLETE AND UTTER DEVASTATION OF BEING LET DOWN BY YOUR BEST AND ONLY FRIEND
bambam: wait i thought we were your friends too?
jacks: I CANNOT FATHOM THIS
JB: okay he'll keep going for a while so bye everyone!
Jinyoung: hang on
Jinyoung: you all have class?
Youngjae: suddenly i'm illiterate
bambam: okay bye hyungs!!!
Gyeom: bye everyone!
well… yugyeom may or may not be human, but his friends are definitely supernatural so there's that
next chapter is called the midnight crisis and will probs be posted on friday :)
hey there demons 
Gyeom: ...fuck why do i always do this
Gyeom: this is the wrong chat again
Jinyoung: tell the story
JB: please do
jacks: i can sense how tense they are lmaooo
bambam: well now you've gone and worried your parents gyeom
bambam: you're gonna have to tell the story now
Gyeom: it's really not as serious as i made it sound
Jinyoung: then you'll have no problem telling us, right?
Gyeom: uh, yeah, right
Gyeom: so i just briefly passed out but it's nothing to worry about! i had everything under control
Gyeom: except during those seconds while i was unconscious, but i mean, i woke up before anything could happen so i would still say i had everything under control
JB: hang on there's a lot to unpack here
JB: WHAT could have happened while you were passed out? like, where did you pass out, was it dangerous?
JB: WHY did you pass out??
Jinyoung: it shouldn't be that hard to answer
Gyeom: i dunno why i passed out
Mark: you didn't get it checked out? go to the hospital?
Gyeom: i meant that i don't know which reason out of like three different options is the reason why i passed out
jacks: and what were those options then
Gyeom: lack of food, lack of sleep, head problem
Jinyoung: head problem??
JB: ok we'll get back to you about those things because you need to LOOK AFTER YOURSELF
JB: but first, where did you pass out?
Gyeom: ... you're not gonna be happy
bambam: they're not gonna let you avoid the question though
Gyeom: ok i passed out in the street
Gyeom: but there weren't any cars!
Jinyoung: wHAT THE FUCK
JB: hang THE FUCK ON
jacks: IN THE STREET?
Mark: are you home now?
Mark: next time you should stay home when you're suffering from lack of sleep and lack of food
Gyeom: but i can't miss too much school, i have to go out for that!
Jinyoung: no, you don't
Jinyoung: your health comes before your grades and attendance
Gyeom: i'm gonna go take a nap
JB: rest well
Jinyoung: we'll lecture you later though
Gyeom: ...okay :/
hey there demons 
Gyeom: welcome to my life!
Gyeom: like wtf is up with my brain?? why am i so impulsive??
Jinyoung: uh, good morning?
Gyeom: oh, hyung
Gyeom: i didn't know you were still awake
Jinyoung: yeah, i couldn't sleep
Gyeom: how do you do that so easily
Gyeom: i wish i wasn't but i'm really tired
Jinyoung: might i suggest you go to bed?
Gyeom: i can't fall asleep
Jinyoung: okay, but you should try to get some rest before school starts tomorrow
Jinyoung: or maybe you should stay home
Jinyoung: i mean you passed out yesterday and you're clearly not gonna get enough sleep
Gyeom: yeah yeah whatever
Gyeom: do you wanna see what i did?
Gyeom: okay i'll send a pic in private chat!
Gyeom: and then i'll go to bed
Jinyoung: that's good
Jinyoung: sleep well yugyeom
chicken noodle soup is stuck in my head and i love it
next chapter features bam the meme man and if u don't know, he eats ass, smokes grass and sleds fast. it also features yugyeom with yellow hair :)
hey there demons 
jacks: uuh, excuse me
jacks: why didn't YOU tell ME how cute you are????
jacks: like holy hell u are babie
Gyeom: ?? i'm taller than u though
jacks: yeah but u are bABIE
JB: i feel like i'm missing something here
Jinyoung: when did you two meet each other?
jacks: just now during lunch
jacks: bambam took too long getting out from his last class so yugyeom sat with me
jacks: and WHY DID NO ONE TELL ME HIS HAIR IS YELLOW????
bambam: his hair is WHAT NOW
Mark: wait, the fuck
Mark: when did that happen?
JB: ok i'm unobservant but i'm not blind, since when does he have yellow hair?
Gyeom: oh, right!
Gyeom: that's what i did during my midnight crisis last night lol
Gyeom: jinyoung hyung said he really liked it!
Jinyoung: it was more like a 4 am crisis but i guess midnight crisis sounds better
Jinyoung: and yeah i did, it looks good on you
Gyeom: thanks ^.^
bambam: i wanna see too!
bambam: someone send me a picture!
JB: now we've got both ketchup and mustard in the group
Gyeom: oh right, you have red hair hyung!
Gyeom: ahahha we match!
Mark: ...i guess so, yeah
Gyeom: that's so cool!
Youngjae: he was about to be mad about it but then he saw yugyeom and just accepted the nickname
jacks: come on, ketchup!
Mark: stop it now or i will shave off your eyebrows and glue them onto your toes when you're sleeping
jacks: why are your threats always so fuckin weird hyung
JB: i think we should just end this conversation here
JB: everyone, go to class or wherever it is you need to be
Gyeom: i don't have class though
bambam: me neither
JB: well idk
JB: go to the library and study or something
bambam: ohh gyeom! we could go to the roof! i wanna show you a shortcut
Jinyoung: don't climb on the roof!
Youngjae: i'm pretty sure he's jumped off at least a few roofs in his life
Jinyoung: please do not go there
Gyeom: we could get a sled and go down the staircase
bambam: hey wassup i'm bam the meme man
Gyeom: do you eat ass, smoke grass and sled fast??
bambam: absolutely lmao
Jinyoung: oh no
Jinyoung: now i have two stupid kids i have to stop from doing dumb things
bambam: good luck with that! bye everyone!
JB: well shit then
jacks: don't worry, i don't think they'll be able to find a sled around here
Youngjae: no but they're very creative beings
Youngjae: they might find something else to use as a sled
JB: i guess i have two kids to find then
JB: goodbye everyone, wish me luck
Jinyoung: good luck!
the only person yugyeom hasn't met now is jinyoung
next chapter comes up on wednesday :)
hey there demons 
bambam: i hope you all have a wonderful day today!
Mark: ...what do you want
bambam: ohmygod can't i just be nice because i feel like it?
Jinyoung: sounds suspicious
bambam: okay wow, thanks for that
bambam: but also
bambam: youngjae hyung can i pleaaase copy your homework?
bambam: i'll buy you coffee or something! pleaaase??
Youngjae: why couldn't you just ask me that face to face
bambam: i honestly do not know what room you slept in tonight
bambam: scratch that, i don't even know which house
Youngjae: i'm in jb hyungs room
bambam: great, so can i copy your homework?
Jinyoung: don't do that!
Youngjae: yeah i don't mind, it's just math
Gyeom: jinyoung hyung do you never sleep?
Gyeom: he was snapchatting me at like 3 am
Gyeom: and it seems he's always awake whenever this chat blows up, both late at night and early in the morning
Jinyoung: yeah, i guess i sleep more during the day since i don't have school
Gyeom: i thought you worked?
Jinyoung: yeah, but as a choreographer, so the hours aren't always set
Gyeom: ah okay ^.^
bambam: youngjae hyung i'm skidding down the hallway toward you!!!
Jinyoung: please don't fall and break your neck
bambam: nah i won't die, i'm too hardcore for that
Youngjae: that makes no sense but ok
Youngjae: HOLY SHIT WHY DID YOU JUST SLAM THE DOOR??????
Youngjae: I HAD A HEARTATTACK
bambam: moving over to a real life conversation now
bambam: bye frens
hey there demons 
Mark: oh so that's what they used as a sled
Jinyoung: did the teacher ask you to say something to them or,??
jacks: i said no
jacks: when she asked if i knew those two kids
jacks: i said no
Mark: i would've done the same thing tbh
Jinyoung: ...why are all my kids stupid
Youngjae: well you're the one who raised us
bambam: wow ok that was unusually savage coming from you youngjae hyung
Jinyoung: no, it really wasn't
Jinyoung: his actual savage personality just doesn't make sense because he (for some reason) has gotten himself an angelic image
Mark: true true
jacks: topic change
jacks: namjoon is going back to america tomorrow and he asked if he could meet my friends!
jacks: i said yes
JB: why didn't you ask us first?
jacks: well i'm asking you now
jacks: who wants to meet him??
Jinyoung: i don't know if you're saying 'me' or 'meme', but i'm coming to meet namjoon
Mark: does he know about us?
jacks: our special identities?
JB: not here!
jacks: yeah he does
jacks: so is everyone coming?
JB: i guess i am, yeah
Youngjae: me too
jacks: yugyeom, do u wanna come too?
Gyeom: oh i don't know
Jinyoung: is it because you still haven't met all of us?
Jinyoung: wait you've met everyone except me
bambam: feeling special hyung?
Jinyoung: shut up brat
Mark: and you wonder why youngjae is a savage
Gyeom: no it's not because of that, i'm just busy
jacks: wait i didn't actually say when we're meeting him
Gyeom: i know but i'm going back to saudi arabia over the weekend
Gyeom: i've already left school for it!
bambam: oh i thought you went to the bathroom
Gyeom: i hugged you and said goodbye really dramatically
bambam: yeah, so??
bambam: i thought you were coming back!
Youngjae: he literally said "see you on monday!"
bambam: yEAH AND
Jinyoung: did you really think bammie has any braincells?
Youngjae: now that you say it...
Gyeom: sorry bam!
Gyeom: i'm not in korea until early in the morning on monday
Mark: wait, doesn't it take a really long time to travel from korea to saudi arabia?
Mark: will you even have any time there or will your whole weekend just be traveling?
Gyeom: i guess it will be, but it's worth it
JB: i hope you have a nice trip gyeom!
Gyeom: thank you!
Gyeom: i hope you all have a great time with namjoon hyung! tell him i said hi!
jacks: okay! bye gyeom!
Gyeom: bye hyungs!
spooky bois 
Mark: i thought we had already established the fact that yugyeom is human
jacks: let me rephrase that
jacks: i think yugyeom will teleport to saudi arabia and back
jacks: maybe he knows a person who can do that, even if he himself is human
Jinyoung: i mean, i looked it up and the fastest flights i could find took 12 hours
JB: he could go by plane but it seems like a waste of time and money if he's only going to be there for about a day and a half
Mark: hm, that's true
Youngjae: we've also already established the fact that we're not gonna find out by discussing it behind his back
jacks: that's true
jacks: so i think we should ask him
bambam: i'm not risking the only normal friendship i've had in all of highschool just because you're all curious about him!
Jinyoung: i haven't actually met the guy, but i agree with bambam on this
JB: anyone else?
Youngjae: i think we should ask
Youngjae: i mean, the worst that could happen is that he's really confused and we have to play it off as a joke
Mark: i'm neutral
JB: so am i
JB: which means that we're currently 2-2, and will not be asking him
jacks: but have you seen all the clues he's left??
Jinyoung: that's irrelevant
Jinyoung: give it some more time, jackson
Jinyoung: there's no reason to corner him with information about something that might not be more than us reading into things too much
bambam: now i'm going to study
bambam: don't bother texting me if it's for another stupid reason like this one
oops bambam is upset… not too much, but he clearly doesn't want to talk to yugyeom about what they are. this is not the end of that discussion though
part 15 comes on friday and reveals some things about yugyeom's life before coming to korea :))
Chapter 15: treasure
oooh it's friday and i am back! woop woop!
(See the end of the chapter for more notes.)
HongJoong: i know
HongJoong: i am standing right next to you
wooyoung: just because you got to be his personal export doesn't mean the rest of us don't want updates!
Yeosang: it's escort, not export
wooyoung: oh sorry dad
Yeosang: i'm not your dad
Yeosang: your dad is a bitch
Gyeom: did he just call an angel a bitch??
Yeosang: sure did
wooyoung: for a human, u sure have a lot of confidence
Yeosang: for an angel, u sure are dumb
HongJoong: guys stop it
HongJoong: me and gyeom have arrived and we're heading toward the dorm rooms now
san: it's "yugyeom and i"
Yeosang: hongjoong hyung i apologize on behalf of these little shits
Yeosang: just because they're technically angels doesn't make them saints
Yeosang: quite the opposite, actually
san: okay stop dissing me and wooyoung we did nothing
wooyoung: sorry gyeom hyung
wooyoung: we're just so excited to see you again!
Gyeom: ...and you deal with your excitement by dissing each other??
san: i mean...
wooyoung: yeah i guess that's accurate
Gyeom: can't say i'm surprised
Gyeom: but i'm excited to see you too ^.^
spooky bois 
JB: their coven is named ateez and some of their members are friends with some members from chan's coven
bambam: knew that already
Jinyoung: stop interrupting
JB: ateez only has 3 supernatural creatures but of you count their human friends, ateez have 8 people
JB: they had a ninth member who left a month ago for some reason that chan doesn't know of
JB: and basically it's all really complicated but the demon seemed to be following the ninth member so he's the only one in actual danger right now
Youngjae: why aren't stray kids doing anything about it?
Youngjae: i mean i get why ateez might not do anything since there's only 3 of them, but stray kids has 9 supernatural creatures
JB: mainly because chan doesn't know much about the situation
JB: ateez isn't sharing any more information about the member that left, so chan can't do anything
JB: and neither can we
JB: but at least no one has to worry about a demon going on a rampage against the covens without reason!
Mark: this sounds weird
jacks: did chan really bring this up out of nowhere?
bambam: kind of?
bambam: i mean he said he was worried for stray kids, but also for their friends in ateez so it wasn't out of nowhere
bambam: he was worried
JB: guys, this doesn't involve us
JB: unless chan asks us for help with helping their friends, then we shouldn't be worrying
JB: a lot of bad things are happening in the world without us even knowing about it, and sadly, there's nothing we can do about that
jacks: yeah, but now that we know about this, i'm worried about that ninth member
bambam: what hyung?
Mark: or maybe it's something
Mark: but it's too early to say
JB: uh, okay, let us know if it's something we need to know
JB: otherwise i guess we're done here
okay, i'm gonna spell it out for you:
- ateez is a coven
- the group chat with yugyeom's friends is named ateez
- ateez are in saudi arabia
- ateez has one warlock and two angels, the rest are human
- ateez are 8 people in total but used to a 9th member who left abt a month ago
- yugyeom is the 9th person in their group chat and left saudi arabia about a month ago
Chapter 16: bangtan
you already know that yugyeom knows bts from his time in america, but in case you forgot, here's the reminder!
(See the end of the chapter for more notes.)
bangtan + traitor maknae 
yoongi: why are you friends with a demon
Namjoon: hyung! let the boy tell us himself
Namjoon: that's the reason he texted us in the first place!
yoongi: i know that but i thought we could save time
junglekook: wow i love my two oracle hyungs
Namjoon: I sense sarcasm
junglekook: you are correct
Gyeom: ok so i came here to tell you that i have made friends in korea
Gyeom: but it seems my life update is not needed here
Namjoon: No, tell us!
yoongi: i mean me and namjoon already know some stuff because you wouldn't tell us so we had to look..
Gyeom: i just haven't had time hyung!
yoongi: i'm joking, it's fine
junglekook: tell us about your new friends gyeom ^_^
Namjoon: I mean, I've met them all already, but feel free to tell the others
Gyeom: also yoongi hyung why did you ask why i'm friends with a demon
Gyeom: there's literally a demon in this group
jimin: yeah but it's different with demons you don't know
junglekook: says the demon himself
jimin: exactly, i should know
jimin: there's like a 50% risk of the demon being an absolute piece of shit
Gyeom: well i don't think this one is
Gyeom: his name is bambam and he's actually been really nice to me!
jimin: sometimes they pretend to be nice to lure you in before attacking
Gyeom: ?? jimin hyung, you're a demon
junglekook: exactly, so why are u talking as if they're a different species???
jimin: i know my demons
jimin: there's a reason i don't have any other demon friends
junglekook: oh wow, the demon solidarity is real lmao
jimin: you won't be laughing when you end up with a literal knife in your back
yoongi: okay jimin, chill out a little
yoongi: that's not going to happen here
yoongi: bambam barely knows about his own kind
Namjoon: I can testify to that
Gyeom: hyungs, did you look into him ???
yoongi: only slightly
Namjoon: just to check in case he was a bad demon!
junglekook: overprotective much?
Namjoon: I wouldn't say we were being overprotective, given yugyeom's background
Gyeom: ok let's not bring that up
Namjoon: but it's very relevant
Gyeom: no it's not
Gyeom: demons? never heard of em
Gyeom: bambam is the first one i've ever encountered
yoongi: ...sure kid, let's pretend
Namjoon: you may not want to talk about it, but you can't pretend it never happened
Gyeom: i'm not pretending that
Gyeom: i'm just trying to avoid this conversation
Gyeom: am i succeeding??
junglekook: sure, we'll pretend you were real subtle about it
junglekook: consider this conversation avoided
Namjoon: okay, fine
Namjoon: text us with an update within this next week or I will have to attack jackson with questions that you will not like
junglekook: the dad strikes again!
Gyeom: thanks everyone
junglekook: no probs
yoongi: we did nothing but ok
ooh yugyeom knows bambam is a demon
Chapter 17: you guys with lunch
i did something different this chapter :p
also i am updating from my grave because ateez's comeback + stray kids' double knot kILLED ME :)))
hey there demons 
bambam: i call upon you in a time of need
Mark: the fuck u want now
bambam: i want lunch
bambam: you guys
bambam: with lunch
Youngjae: he wants to have lunch with all of us
Mark: thanks for translating, youngjae
Youngjae: no problem
bambam: lunch i want want
bambam: aishhhh you guys
bambam: ...do u want??????
jacks: lol what's the big deal?
Mark: sure, we'll have lunch together
Youngjae: i think the problem is that we've never all had lunch together
JB: ooooh wait, i get it
Mark: he means us five + yugyeom
jacks: or we could escape school and go have lunch with jinyoung too at some other place
JB: that's a wonderful suggestion
JB: two problems: yugyeom hasn't met all of us at the same time
jacks: the second problem?
jacks: ah okay
Jinyoung: excuse me????
Youngjae: hyung, be honest
Youngjae: do u really want us to escape school just to have lunch?
Jinyoung: i have no problem with it
jacks: wait really???
bambam: kay then i guess we have a plan
Jinyoung: have you asked everyone involved if they want to join?
bambam: yes i have?
Gyeom: yeah i wanna have lunch with you guys if it's not a problem ^.^
bambam: everyone already said yes
Youngjae: we really didn't but ok
bambam: then it's decided!
bambam: we meet by the closest mcdonalds as soon as class ends!
JB: i'll see u all there
Jinyoung: and remember to not cross the street without looking both ways first!
bambam: i feel personally targeted by that reminder
Jinyoung: you should
Yugyeom wouldn't say he's scared of meeting the entire group at the same time, but maybe he's a little nervous. He hasn't had to make friends in over a year. The last people he befriended had been the members of Ateez, and even then, it had been because they were going to be living and training together for so long.
This time, the only reason Yugyeom is getting to know Bambam's friend group is because they all seem genuinely interested in befriending him. Of course, he already knows exactly what all of them are, but they don't know about him.
Yugyeom moves his eyes to the left, as if guided by some foreboding instinct, and they immediately land on a face he recognizes from the photos that Bambam has showed him. It's Park Jinyoung, the group's vampire, making his way through the light crowd on the street.
Honestly, he's not as pale as Yugyeom expected him to be, but maybe that's just because he hasn't actually had many vampire friends before, so he doesn't know what to expect.
Jinyoung seems to recognize him, as well, because the older smiles and raises a hand as he walks in Yugyeom's direction. The younger is only given a few short moments to prepare himself before the vampire reaches him, trying to take some calming breaths while pocketing his phone again.
"Hi, Yugyeom!" Jinyoung greets as soon as he's close enough to be heard. He doesn't look nervous at all.
"Hey hyung!" Yugyeom returns the greeting while trying not to show how terrifying he thinks it is to meet new people.
"You haven't been waiting too long, right?" the older asks, a slight hint of concern showing on his otherwise calm face. Yugyeom shakes his head with a small smile. It's almost cute to him that Jinyoung manages to care about someone he barely even knows, and suddenly it makes a lot of sense why the others would call Jinyoung the mom of the group. He clearly has the fitting traits.
"I thought we could go inside and wait for the rest", Jinyoung suggests, and Yugyeom responds with another nod.
As they walk, Jinyoung asks him about his classes and how he's been adjusting to being back in Korea, the pair of them making some light conversation while waiting for everyone else. It's not even half as awkward as Yugyeom had thought it could be. To be honest, it's pretty nice. Jinyoung is nice.
It doesn't take a lot of time for the others to arrive. Bambam and Jackson are both looking slightly disheveled, as if they have run all the way here.
"We raced", Jackson explains in between two panting breaths, gesturing weakly between himself and the younger boy. It's not clear who won, but it does explain their appearances.
Yugyeom is kind of freaking out right now. It had only been early this morning that he returned to Korea, so his mind isn't exactly working at full capacity, being too tired to think properly, but maybe that's good in this situation. At least he won't overthink stuff and end up being super awkward.
Him and Jinyoung have already ordered, so Yugyeom expects the new arrivals to go do the same, but Bambam casts a quick glance around before speaking up.
"I know what everyone wants so you can go grab a table."
No one objects, so Yugyeom just goes along with it as they all head over toward an empty table big enough to fit them all. Ahead of him, Jackson and Youngjae are arguing about how you're supposed to measure the results from his and Bambam's running contest rather loudly. Jaebum and Mark are speaking calmly behind the arguing pair, and Jinyoung is walking next to Yugyeom.
Not really having anything to say, Yugyeom glances at his phone screen and sees two new notifications from Jungkook.
junglekook -> Gyeom [private chat]
junglekook: oh btw namjoon hyung told me youre meeting got6 for the first tiem today
Gyeom: thanks yes i am
junglekook: lmao gotta love those oracle hyungs
junglekook: also namjoon hyung says that i should tell u "honey you've got a big storm coming"
Gyeom: wait what, what does that even mean
junglekook: he says you should stay away from danger
Gyeom: don't i always?
junglekook: more like do you ever ??
Gyeom: yah u rite
"Yugyeom", Jaebum says in a rather serious tone, and the younger instantly looks away from his screen, toward the coven's leader. His eyes are just as serious as his tone when he stares at Yugyeom.
The words that follow aren't as serious, though.
"If the Earth was flat, would the sun just spin in circles above it, or would it move in a more spiral-like shape?" he asks.
Yugyeom definitely snorts at that, but he still ponders the question to give a serious answer. He notices that Mark and Youngjae are watching him as well, waiting for what the younger will say, so Yugyeom supposed that this is what they have been discussing.
"Well, it has to move up and down too, right? It can't just spin around. Then we wouldn't have different seasons", he replies.
By now, Jackson has also caught on to the topic at hand, and adds his own opinion to the discussion. Youngjae apparently has a very detailed plan about how the sun would have to move for it to work with seasons and timezones, even though Mark and Jaebum don't appear to agree with him.
While they talk, Yugyeom looks over at Jinyoung, expecting him to look exasperated for having to deal with this mess, but he seems just as interested in the conversation as everyone else. When he feels Yugyeom's eyes on him, he turns his head just slightly and sends a small smile his way.
"What if the sun was like a lamp and could just turn on and off?" he suggest, leaning forward over the table to join the discussion.
How Yugyeom ends up discussing the logistics of a flat Earth with six supernatural crackheads fifteen minutes after his class was supposed to begin, he wouldn't be able to tell you.
At least he's happy to be there.
And, maybe missing class was worth it.
(it was definitely worth it).
so yes, yugyeom knows what everyone is.
i will post the next part on friday ^.^
Gyeom -> junglekook [private chat]
junglekook: fear is a natural reaction meant to warn you for danger, fear is meant to keep you alive, even though past experiences may have taught you to fear things that aren't actually dangerous and might be something you want to overcome
Gyeom: the fuck ??
junglekook: hobi hyung told me that today and i wanted to spread my knowledge
Gyeom: oh ok.., thanks i guess?
junglekook: but why are you scared yugs?
Gyeom: i think i'm getting attached
junglekook: okay, but why is that a bad thing?
Gyeom: you know why it's a bad thing kook
junglekook: no, i really don't
Gyeom: cause i can never stay! i'm just gonna get attached and then i'll have to run again
Gyeom: or, i'll get attached and then they find out the truth about me being a fucked up mess and they'll hate me
Gyeom: and i'm scared because bambam is a demon and every time i go near him, i'm reminded of what happened last time i got close with a demon even though it literally has nothing to do with him
Gyeom: and they're all so nice to me but they don't even know what i am!
Gyeom: as soon as they find out, they won't be as nice, no one ever is
junglekook: gyeom, me and the rest of bangtan found out what you were and none of us ran away or started treating you differently
junglekook: i mean, you can't help what you're born as and we understand that
Gyeom: what if they don't think the same way
junglekook: didn't you just say that bambam is a demon?
junglekook: they're all supernatural creatures, i think they understand better than anyone that you can't control what you are
Gyeom: i guess
junglekook: and about bambam being a demon,
junglekook: yeah, i get why that freaks you out and the fact that you can sense his demon-ness every time you go near him isn't really something you can control
junglekook: i mean, that's just part of your powers
junglekook: and it's not your fault that demons make you freak out, i mean that's just how trauma works
junglekook: don't blame yourself for not being over something that affected you so badly
Gyeom: but bambam had nothing to do with that!
junglekook: i know, and one day bambam's demonic aura won't scare you like it does now, but it's okay that it does right now, considering your past
junglekook: stop blaming yourself, i can clearly see that you know that it has nothing to do with bambam, but you can't control your reactions to him
Gyeom: yeah, okay, i guess that's true
junglekook: hell yeah it is, i'm a fucking genius
Gyeom: you're starting to sound like hyung
junglekook: jin hyung? or yoongi hyung?
junglekook: no seriously which one gyeom???
Gyeom: sorry i gotta go
Gyeom: gotta go tell my friends that i had a nice time with them today!
junglekook: yes!! go conquer your fears!!
Gyeom: i'm not afraid of talking to them though
junglekook: stop criticizing me
Gyeom: lmao okay
Gyeom: and thanks for everything you said
junglekook: no problem
Gyeom: yes problem
Gyeom: it was a problem but you helped me come down from it, so thank you!
junglekook: okay, yeah, you're welcome
Gyeom: bye kook :)
junglekook: bye gyeom
junglekook: now go talk to your friends!
hey there demons 
jacks: omg it was really fun that you came
Jinyoung: i hope we didn't overwhelm you,.. some of us can be a little much at times
Gyeom: oh no, you were fine
Gyeom: i had a great time :)
bambam: does this mean you'll have lunch with us at school too now??
Jinyoung: chill out child
Gyeom: sure, if you want me to ^.^
bambam: yes we do
Youngjae: you're very welcome to join us any time
Mark: it's weird
Mark: it feels like you've been our friend for much longer, even though we're just getting to know you
jacks: you sure that's not your own fault hyung?
Mark: shut up
Gyeom: lol why would it be his fault?
jacks: cause he can sense people's auras!
bambam: the fuck
Gyeom: are you saying he's like a wizard? lol
jacks: not really, it's just like a gut feeling that decides if he liked people or not
Gyeom: oh, cool
jacks: nice! i guess i'll see u at lunch tomorrow then yugyeom!
Gyeom: yeah okay, bye hyungs!
bambam: bye yugs :))
Gyeom: bye bambam!
spooky bois 
Mark: are you trying to expose me???
jacks: no! i was just trying to see his reaction!
Jinyoung: and did you get any information from that little experiment?
Jinyoung: then don't do it again
jacks: i won't!
jacks: and it's not like i exposed us or anything
Youngjae: if he knows about the supernatural, then he definitely knows what mark hyung is now
Mark: i take it none of you noticed what he was doing then?
jacks: was yugyeom doing something??
bambam: hyung, he wasn't doing anything weird
Jinyoung: what did he do?
Mark: doesn't matter
Mark: i'll tell u if it does
Youngjae: okay hyung, we trust you
Jinyoung: but what happened? is there something off about yugyeom?
Mark: no, i haven't seen anything you need to worry about
bambam: then why these ominous comments?
Mark: i'll tell you if there's anything else
jacks: but what is going on
Youngjae: mark hyung doesn't stick around after saying bye
Jinyoung: guys, trust hyung's judgment
Jinyoung: he said that nothing is off about yugyeom and that we don't have to worry
Jinyoung: i trust him to tell us if he realizes anything
jacks: i do too
bambam: yeah, okay
bambam: but i still find it weird how it seems like mark hyung always knows something we don't
Youngjae: that's probably cause he does
Jinyoung: go to bed
bambam: okay mom
Youngjae: goodnight ^-^
jacks: bye peeps
i'll post another chapter on sunday and here's a teaser for that:
jacks: HURRY THE FUCK UP YOU LITTLE SHITS THEY'RE RUNNING OUT OF NACHO CHIPS
yeah the next part is very serious as you can see lol. but after that, there's some drama
Chapter 19: two weeks later
if it wasn't obvious already from the title, this chapter takes place two weeks after the previous one
hey there demons 
bambam: DAMN BITCH STOP YELLING
JB: why can't you just take chips for those of us who aren't in the cafeteria yet?
jacks: do i look like a fucking delivery boy to u???
jacks: Please no honesty.
Mark: i wouldn't be surprised if you showed up outside my door with a delivery
Gyeom: yeah, hyung is right
Gyeom: i could see u as a delivery boy
jacks: ...traitors, all of you
Gyeom: says the one who won't get us chips :(
bambam: taco tuesday is a scam
Youngjae: i thought you loved taco tuesday?
bambam: no, i love the CONCEPT of taco tuesday
bambam: reality is a lot harsher than you think
Mark: wow, so cynical bammie
bambam: this world is cold and heartless, might as well accept it
Gyeom: thanks for the advice
jacks: wow, i'm loving the positivity
Gyeom: omg WHAT
jacks: ARE YOU COMING TO FAMILY DINNER TONIGHT ??????
Gyeom: OF COURSE!
bambam: boi, why u yelling
jacks: i just got excited!
Youngjae: he came to family dinner last week though
jacks: yeah and it was fun!
Gyeom: it was a mess
Gyeom: a good kind of mess though
jacks: so i just wanted to know if we were doing it again!
Jinyoung: why can you kids never text like normal people
Youngjae: maybe cause we're not normal
Gyeom: lmao that's true
Mark: okay everyone, me and jackson got chips for everyone
Jinyoung: stop it with those b99 references, i'm tired
bambam: uuh, no
Jinyoung: seriously, you haven't stopped for two weeks, i'm exhausted
bambam: uuuh yeah, cause YA BORING
Youngjae: poor hyung
Mark: bammie, show some respect to your mother
bambam: BYE LOSERS I JUST ARRIVED IN THE CAFETERIA!
Gyeom: he put his phone away now
Jinyoung: finally, some peace and quiet
Gyeom: excuse me? i'm literally right here
Youngjae: the demon twins
Gyeom: are you calling me a demon? lol
JB: i meaan...
jacks: yeah we are
Gyeom: but why is bammie a demon?
Mark: you've seen his crackhead behavior
Gyeom: ah right
Gyeom: makes sense
jacks: okay i can see yugbam now!
jacks: put your phone away mark hyung!
JB: wait for me and youngjae!
Youngjae: we're there in like three seconds
jacks: too bad everyone else has already put their phone away
jacks: mark hyung got chips for you though
jacks: said i wasn't allowed to let you starve
JB: well thank god for mark hyung then
JB: it seems we're not very loved by everyone else
Jinyoung: i love you
jacks: yeah but you're dating him so that's in the contract
Jinyoung: ?? what contract
Youngjae: the dating contract
Jinyoung: ok i'm gonna go take a nap or something
Jinyoung: bye children
jacks: bai bai
JB: bye jinyoung
jacks: what about everyone else?
JB: i can literally see you right in front of me
JB: i have no reason to say goodbye to you
so the point of this was mostly to show how they've gotten to know each other better (but still haven't told each other anything)
next week i'm gonna post chapters on wednesday, thursday and friday, so three days in a row, and the chapters will be titled departure, turbulence and arrival :))
Chapter 20: departure
*dramatic gasp* it's wednesday!
(See the end of the chapter for more notes.)
spooky bois 
jacks: still don't wanna tell us why?
Mark: i've already told u that i'm going to see some old friends
bambam: hyung, we know that's not the only reason
Youngjae: guys don't press him
Youngjae: he'll tell us if he wants to
JB: i just don't want a repeat of what happened before
Mark: that was a long time ago though
Mark: i had practically just met you
Jinyoung: you had been with us for six months?
Mark: same thing
jacks: it's really not
Mark: okay fine, but that's not what this is about
Mark: i promise i'll tell you what this trip is for once i come back
Jinyoung: are you sure that's the best option?
Jinyoung: i'm not asking to sound like i'm doubting you, i'm genuinely wondering
Mark: i think so
Jinyoung: then i accept it
Youngjae: we won't bother you with any more questions then
Mark: thanks everyone
hey there demons 
Gyeom: oh is he visiting his family?
bambam: nah just some friends, he'll be back soon
jacks: so what are we doing while he's gone guys?
bambam: drama queen
JB: says the drama queen himself
Gyeom: wait why are you crying??
Youngjae: cause mark hyung is gone
Jinyoung: he's coming back though
Youngjae: yeah i guess..
jacks: so does anyone have any plans or what?
Gyeom: one of my friends is actually visiting from america!
JB: wait really
jacks: is it one of the ones from namjoon's friend group?
JB: oh, that's fun!
spooky bois 
bambam: fuckin get over it
Jinyoung: Be nice.
JB: if we ignore bambam
JB: there's clearly something up with yugyeom, and i would not be surprised to hear that he knows about the supernatural
JB: but mark hyung said that yugyeom is human, and we have to trust that
Youngjae: we could still ask yugyeom though
jacks: or we could tell him about ourselves
jacks: no one's saying that we have to force him to tell us anything he doesn't want to
Youngjae: that's actually a good point
Jinyoung: that we turn the situation around? tell him the truth about ourselves instead of asking for the truth about him?
bambam: hyung left like an hour ago and we're already spiraling
jacks: we're not spiraling, just discussing
Jinyoung: that's right, but bambam is also right in that we shouldn't do anything without mark here
bambam: thank you
jacks: i'll gladly just tell yugyeom that i'm a werewolf
jacks: you guys don't have to do it with me
JB: okay everyone, take a step back
JB: go to school
JB: we'll talk later, okay?
bambam: no we won't
jacks: yeah okay
Jinyoung: i can already tell this is gonna be a mess
well, jinyoung isn't wrong, this is gonna be a mess lmao.
they're gonna talk more abt it later, but both bambam and jackson have their reasons for acting the way they do. they've all had bad experiences with telling others the truth about themselves, but bambam and jackson kind of had the opposite reaction to it? like, jackson wants to tell people as early as possible to just get it over it while bambam would prefer to never say it at all, since he's a demon and some people aren't able to see past that once they find out
yeah ok that was long but thanks for reading <3
bambam: ..not this bullshit again
Youngjae: we should at least wait til mark hyung comes back to discuss this
jacks: why would we???
jacks: this is between us and yugyeom
Youngjae: US as in ALL OF US, and that includes mark hyung
jacks: we can't wait until he comes back!
jacks: besides, hyung has been keeping stuff from us
Jinyoung: such as?
jacks: i shouldn't even have to explain, you all know it
jacks: he's been so secretive and mysterious pretty much since he met yugyeom
JB: are you implying what i think you're implying?
bambam: fuck you jackson
jacks: where the hell did that come from??
bambam: you're trying to say that mark hyung is covering up yugyeom's secret identity!
bambam: i was fuckin there when they met and mark hyung very honestly said that he couldn't pick up on anything supernatural from gyeom
jacks: that doesn't mean shit!
Youngjae: are you calling mark hyung a liar?
jacks: as if all of us haven't lied a few times
jacks: but no, i'm just saying that there's a possibility he saw something he didn't like in yugyeom and decided not to tell us
Youngjae: why are you being so mean?
jacks: i'm not trying to be mean! i'm just trying to make you see where i'm coming from!
Youngjae: well it seems like you're attacking both mark hyung and yugyeom
jacks: oh, why don't you go cry to your boyfriend, go hug a tree or whatever
Youngjae: ...fuck you jackson
Youngjae has left spooky bois
jacks: i didn't mean to make him leave
bambam: really? could've fooled me
jacks: i'm trying to make you see what's going on here!
jacks: but you refuse to see that mark hyung knows something we don't, and yugyeom isn't as pure as he seems
bambam: jackson, What the fuck ?????
bambam: yugyeom has been nothing but kind to everyone since we met him!
jacks: that's not what i meant!
bambam: you just said he's not as pure as we think! what else could you mean???
JB: Can you both please stop?
jacks: fuckin hell, i'm not trying to call mark a liar or say that yugyeom is rude
jacks: i'm just saying that i'm no longer content with just sitting back while weird shit happens and no one does anything about it!
Jinyoung: what weird shit are you talking about?
jacks: i dunno, everything!
jacks: ateez being attacked by a demon, yugyeom and his past, mark hyung never telling us what he's thinking, bangtan and yugyeom knowing each other
jacks: there's a lot of unexplained shit around yugyeom
Jinyoung: hang on
Jinyoung: when were ateez being attacked by a demon?
JB: like a month ago, maybe more
bambam: hyung what is this about? ateez have nothing to do with this
bambam: this is about all of you being willing to risk everything just because you're curious about yugyeom!
JB: bammie, no, that's not it
Jinyoung: we're not trying to damage your relationship with him
bambam: stop acting like you actually give a fuck about my friendship with gyeom
bambam: i'm not blind, i get that something's up with him but it's none of our business!
bambam: i really thought you guys weren't the type of people to force others to expose themselves
bambam: guess i was wrong to assume
bambam has left spooky bois
Jinyoung: yelling won't solve anything
JB: we need to have this discussion in person
jacks: this shouldn't even have to be a discussion
Jinyoung: uh, yes it should. we need to talk about it
jacks: if i wanna tell him about myself, that has nothing to do with you!
Jinyoung: it does though
Jinyoung: we live together, and if you tell yugyeom you're a werewolf that would put us in a position where we either do the same or lie to him about it
Jinyoung: and some of us don't wanna lie
JB: Jackson, don't.
jacks: i won't
jacks: i just find it weird how he says he doesn't want to lie, yet it seems that's all he ever does
Jinyoung: what the fuck is that supposed to mean?
jacks: "oh i'm just not tired"
jacks: "i just couldn't fall asleep"
jacks: "my family is rich, it's definitely not that i've been working and earning money for about 80 years"
Jinyoung: And what the fuck was I supposed to say?
Jinyoung: "OH I'm nocturnal and need a lot less sleep than normal humans, that's why I'm always awake"
Jinyoung: "I was born in 1907 so I've been earning money for almost a century, hence my economical status"
jacks: no, but maybe don't lie?
Jinyoung: Fuck off
JB: Both of you, stop. This is doing nothing
jacks: why is everyone so against just talking to yugyeom??
JB: I'm not, I'm literally not
jacks: oh? cause earlier you said you were neutral
Jinyoung: that was me
JB: I said I was against it, but not anymore
JB: there's too much stuff that doesn't add up
jacks: then why the fuck do you just let bambam play the victim?
JB: this isn't about whether or not we should tell yugyeom anymore
jacks: yes it fuckin is
JB: It's not
jacks: i can't
jacks has left spooky bois
JB: i'm gonna say something i regret
JB: i'm sorry
JB has left spooky bois
Jinyoung: mark please text me when you see this
soo.. this just happened.
jackson, jb & youngjae all want to tell yugyeom, bambam is against it, and jinyoung just wants them to have a calm conversation.
i hope this chapter didn't make anyone seem like the bad guy, cause they're all at least a little bit in the wrong right now. all except youngjae, actually. they're being defensive and attacking each other because they're scared, which has to do with their pasts, but they're not gonna get anywhere unless they start to listen more to each other
next up is arrival :))
Mark -> Jinyoung [private chat]
Mark: when we're talking about him, he should be included in the discussion
Jinyoung: i agree with you, but i don't think everyone else does
Mark: i know and that's what frustrates me
Mark: i saw what you all wrote before everyone left
Jinyoung: they probably didn't mean anything by it so i hope you weren't offended..?
Mark: i mean
Mark: jackson was right
Mark: PARTLY, he was partly right
Jinyoung: you're gonna have to explain yourself some more unless you want everyone to freak out at you
Mark: i know, but i'd rather do it with everyone present
Mark: basically, i have been keeping stuff from you
Mark: i didn't pick up on anything supernatural from yugyeom when i met him, that's the truth
Mark: i haven't lied to any of you
Mark: the only thing is that i haven't been completely honest about what i think i've figured out about him
Mark: but i think i should tell you in person instead of through a group chat
Jinyoung: good luck trying to get jackson and bambam in the same room
Mark: maybe i don't have to
Mark: i mean, if i say that it's about yugyeom, they'll probably both show up voluntarily
Jinyoung: ...whatever floats your boat
Mark: that's such an old person thing to say
Jinyoung: thanks i try my best
hey there demons 
Mark: and since yugyeom is currently out with a friend i thought i'd take the opportunity to only talk to the six of you
JB: how do you know that?
Mark: i went to america to see bangtan, and you all know yoongi is an oracle, so he told me when would be the best time to text
jacks: oh? now you can be honest?
Mark: you have full rights to be upset, but please don't call me names
jacks: ...i'm sorry hyung
Mark: i'm coming back soon, i'll probably teleport back in a few hours, and i think we should all meet
Mark: we need to talk and i have a lot of stuff to tell you about yugyeom
bambam: why is everyone so obsessed with knowing everything about him??
bambam: if he wanted us to know, he would have told us
Mark: i agree with you and i'm sorry that i have to do this, but i really wasn't trying to figure it out
Mark: i went to america to ask bangtan if i was right in my assumptions about yugyeom
Mark: which i was
Jinyoung: what assumptions?
Mark: well, he left a lot of clues
Mark: i shouldn't be telling you all of it through a group chat
Mark: i haven't been lying to you, but i also haven't been telling the truth, but i will now
jacks: i'll be there hyung
bambam: what don't you guys understand about privacy??
Mark: bambam, i'm on your side in this
Mark: the only reason i figured anything out is because i pay a lot of attention
Mark: i swear i'm not doing this to expose him, or doing it just because i'm curious
Mark: i genuinely think he would benefit from telling us the truth
bambam: This is exactly what I don't want!
Mark: i don't think we should ask him to tell us anything
Mark: i want to meet all of you to tell you what i know, which is far from everything
Mark: there are a lot of things we can only find out from yugyeom himself
Mark: and right now, i'm not saying ANYTHING about talking to yugyeom about this
jacks: i've already said i'm coming
JB: i will, too
Jinyoung: me as well
bambam: i'm upset
bambam: this feels wrong
bambam: but i guess i'll come
bambam: and i'll try to act civilized
Mark: thank you
Mark: youngjae? you haven't said anything
JB: he's asleep on my bed
JB: yeah, cause someone was fuckin rude to him
jacks: i didn't mean it...
Jinyoung: everyone, we'll solve this later
Jinyoung: it's between youngjae and jackson so everyone else should refrain from saying anything
Jinyoung: and i just want to say that i get why everyone is acting the way they are right now
Jinyoung: i mean, telling someone about your supernatural identity is something we all have negative experiences with
Jinyoung: mark was disowned by his parents when he started showing signs of magic
Jinyoung: jackson had no friends for YEARS after telling his last friendgroup about it
Jinyoung: which i guess is why you want to do it as soon as possible with yugyeom now?
jacks: i just want to get it over with and see how he reacts
Jinyoung: and i guess bambam doesn't want to tell yugyeom at all? probably because some people are very misinformed about demons
bambam: i mean, it's complicated
bambam: i don't really want to tell yugyeom but i understand that it's the only option if i actually want to be close with him
Jinyoung: I know, and it's okay. You don't have to think it's easy to tell him. The important thing is that you're willing to listen to us when we discuss it, and actually take in our points
bambam: which i haven't really been doing..
Jinyoung: Yes, but we've all done a lot of wrong and said some things we shouldn't have
Jinyoung: Everyone makes mistakes. As long as we're willing to listen and apologize, I think we'll be fine
Mark: i think jinyoung just borrowed every braincell this group has
jacks: yeah but that's not a lot
bambam: true lmao, we have like four braincells
Jinyoung: does this mean you're all willing to talk it out?
bambam: i am
Mark: me too
Jinyoung: now we should spam the chat to make sure yugyeom doesn't see this
JB: oh yeah
Gyeom: hey guys
Gyeom: i think i just saw something i wasn't supposed to
Youngjae: holy hell that was a fucking plot twist
maybe next time they shouldn't discuss things like this in a groupchat with the person they're talking about.. just maybe
ALSO I'M SORRY FOR ENDING IT LIKE THAT HEHEHEH I CAN ALREADY IMAGINE PEOPLE GONNA YELL AT ME IN THE COMMENTS lol
next chapter will be up on monday and it's titled "the reveal"
