Summary: EXO Mafia AU ~ Yixing is an operative for his crime family, the Kims, and his next mission is to kidnap you, an heiress, for a ransom. He’s been doing this all his life, he’s prepared for this - or so he thinks…until he meets you.
SPECIAL FEATURE ALERT: This is a reader-interactive fic, so in the box below, if you enter a name (yours or a character’s, for example), and click “submit”, it will swap out “Y/N” for that name. None of the information entered is stored. This feature does not work on dashboard/feed/mobile app unfortunately.
Yixing blindly reaches for Sehun as
the dull grief he had been feeling for the past several years spikes into acute,
jagged fear. And fury. She can’t do this. She can’t just play with his life
like this! She can come for Yixing, poison him, beat him, take a shot at his
head all she wants – but if Y/N thinks she can lay a single finger on Sehun, on
his little brother—
Yixing’s feet react faster than his
brain and he’s weaving through the crowded room, trying not to run, trying to
keep his face impassive, silently calculating how many fucking bullets he’ll
put between her eyes – when a hand catches his arm and stops him.
“You’ve come home,” Suho says, dropping
his hand when Yixing stares at it.
“No thanks to you,” he mutters and
takes a step away. He needs to go, now, and the last person he wants to talk to
is his father. He’s half-turned towards the door, but Suho continues with
purposeful obliviousness to Yixing’s urgency.
“Please,” he scoffs. “There was no
doubt in my mind that you were going to escape. I trained you myself, remember?
I will always bet on you, Yixing.”
A blossom of warmth unfurls in his
chest, but Yixing quickly tamps it down – because this is what Suho does. His
words are sweet as honey but his actions are colder than a knife’s edge.
“This wasn’t a bet, Suho,” he rakes
a hand through his hair, “you took a gamble on my life. What if you had lost?”
“Have I lost
before?” This is a rhetorical question. Suho’s track record of victory is
impeccable. “Anyway, I expect a thorough debriefing of the whole event. The
Nightshade girl is playing with fire here, and I think it’s time we turn up the
eyes slide to Sehun happily chatting with his brothers, and he nods. On this
matter, he agrees with his father – but he’s not about to come running back
home because of it. “Okay,” he lies smoothly. “We’ll talk tonight, but I have
to go now.”
on earth could you possibly go when your entire world is right here?” Suho
calls after his retreating figure, and he grits his teeth. Because Y/N has
somehow managed to wedge her way into his world too, Suho just doesn’t know it
Hey, could you maybe deliver some trans Frank headcanons? Bc i really really love him, thank you if you do!
THIS IS LATE BUT I LOVE TRANS BOY FRANK SO MUCH…. heres a Discovering He’s Trans post because im a sucker for those, my trans ass LOVES origin stories, its true. enjoy! and thank you for sending the ask!!!
- frank wasnt always uncomfortable with “girl stuff”. he liked tea parties just fine, didnt mind when his mom said he looked pretty, and pink wasnt his favorite color but he didnt have anything against it
- as he grows older, he starts realizing that its … just not what he wants. he gets “mistaken” for a boy one day when he has his hair tucked back under his the hood of his large jacket and it shocks him to find that he prefers it
- he mentions what happened to his grandmother and his mom on separate occasions. he tells his grandmother right when he gets home and she raises an eyebrow and asks “was this stranger correct?” and frank blinks in confusion, stares at her. “because it seems to be making you very happy, fai. youre flushed.” frank laughs and blames it on the cold. much later, he talks to his mom about maybe, if thats okay, kind of, sort of, calling him a boy from now on. asks if other girls like that too.
- she agrees, because of course she does, shes amazing. she says she doesnt know if other girls like that, but that its okay to like that. that she’ll always support her baby bear. frank laughs when she ruffles his hair and kisses the top of his head, their smiles identical. (and then, of course, she does her research “google dot com girls who like being called boys???” because she loves her kid and wants to help him figure this out)
- she talks to her mother about it and they argue about it a little before grandmother zhang admits that, yes, we both love fai, i would do anything to see that child happy and healthy. so they bring it up to him, this new subject of gender, to frank.
- they ask frank if he wants to be a boy all the time, not just at home. asks if he wants a hair cut, maybe, or different clothes. he thinks for a while.
- he doesnt see anything wrong with what he has on, exactly. theyre clothes and they serve a purpose. but the rest of it…. of being a guy everywhere, everyone calling him a boy all the time…. that feels much better. after being called a boy at home, he’s begun to realize that being called a girl at school did kind of bother him. he didnt want to be a girl at all.
- he admits this and mom and grandmother look at eachother. he wonders what adult secret hes been left out of this time.
- but then they tell him. they mention the word transgender, they explain it all. talk about the things emily read about. and frank is a little afraid, but mostly… relieved. finally, things are making sense.
- and thus, frank zhang comes into full realization of himself with a kind and supportive family. grandmother is still a mean woman, but never about this. she still calls him ‘fai’, because “if you wanted me to call you a different name, you should have chosen a chinese one!” but it doesnt upset him as much as other people calling him it does. its just a name, after all. hes frank, and at home, with his mean but loving grandmother, hes fai. he can accept that. she’s done everything else he needs, thats enough for him
This movie is…complicated to talk about. Any discussion surrounding this movie will be overshadowed by the…politics surrounding it; and that isn’t helped by the fact that the movie’s content is hardly worth a massive discussion in the first place.
But I saw The Great Wall, and I feel like talking about it. So this is me, hoping I don’t put my foot in my mouth as I discuss a complicated, layered problem…and the much less complicated movie it sprouts from.
