gosh…. where to start with taekook….
one of this things i really like about them is their youth and playfulness. they still have a long way to go in life, so in that sense, they are so pliable, they can become whoever they want. so whenever i write them, i feel like i can mold them into the shape that i want for their characters.
and theres this sense of friendship that tae and jungkook share as the two youngest in the group. they get a lot of chances to be playful and bratty because they’re still kids, and theyre so comfortable with each other.
one thing ive noticed is that jungkook is only really touchy feely with tae. like, with jimin, he actively pushes the poor guy away, and hes not on the same level of comfort with the older members. he always goes to tae. jungkook only ever lets his guard down completely with tae, and he feels like he can really act like a maknae when tae is around.
i also think they balance each other out really nicely. jungkook is a very serious guy. he pushes himself to be as close to perfect as possible, and he feels a lot of pressure on him to succeed. tae is the total opposite- he is a free spirit, just loving and kind and open, and he could really care less what others think of him. he does what makes him happy, rather than trying to please others. and both points of view have their merit, but theyre polar opposites, which is why it’s so beautiful when they come together.
i could write an entire essay about why i love taekook and why i write taekook so much, but these are just a few reasons off the top of my head! hope that helped. lovely anon~~~
