Big Bang Reaction/Prompt
Big Bang, Prompt: Today was miserably cold and he couldn’t understand why everyone was so happy until he saw them
Seunghyun was wrapped up in a long coat and thick scarf, walked along the snowy street scowling at every person who smiled. Why? Today was cold and bitter; like him. Why were people smiling? Why were they happy? It didn’t make sense to him. Seunghyun had just finished a full schedule and was only allowed a 30-minute break before going to his next schedule. 30 minutes was all he needed to go to his favorite cafe, grab a coffee and relax, in spite of what he wanted.
He stepped inside the cafe relishing in the warmth, loosening the scarf he was wearing. As he stepped up to the counter, he noticed it wasn’t the usual barista smiling up at him, instead, it was a new (boy/girl). As he locked eyes with her his scowl softened, the ice of his bitter mood melting away. Those shockingly beautiful (E/C) eyes were so full of warmth and love that he could feel himself slowly starting to smile.
“Hello! What can I get for you today?”
Suddenly the day wasn’t so cold.
Slumped over in his computer chair, Jiyong sighed as he crumpled another failed attempt at a song, throwing the piece of paper into an already overfilled wastebasket. He thought that he had felt inspiration, but all of the songs he thought he could make work were too cold-hearted and lonesome. He was tired of writing sad songs. For once he wanted to write something that made people feel warm, that made them feel love through words and beat alike. However, the cold day that he could see through his window was ruining his mood. Jiyong stretched and stood from his chair, the only bliss he had felt that day coming from his muscles returning to a normal state. As he cleaned up the paper tornado in his studio with frustration, his doorbell rang.
He stormed through his house to the front door and angrily threw it open, planning to tell the intruder off and slam it back in their face.
“I don’t want anything-” Jiyong started, immediately cut off by laying eyes on the most beautiful person he had ever seen. He felt his chest ache with warmth and his fingers twitch at the thought of a new song, just by looking at their smile and curious eyes.
“I seem to have gotten your mail. I’m the new neighbor. It’s nice to meet you.”mail. I’m the new neighbor. It’s nice to meet you.”
Cold air billowed around Youngbae as he walked through the local park, the icy cold nipping at his face and hands. He sat down on a park bench after wiping the snow away, contemplating his decisions he had made. He was an extremely successful singer, yet he couldn’t seem to get past the part of being just that: a singer. He wanted to be known as Youngbae. Not just Taeyang or another member of Big Bang. He wanted to be human and not just an idol.
He sighed, his breath forming a mist in the air. He stood again, shivering slightly before pulling his hood over his head. He had only managed to walk a couple steps before something (well, someone) bumped into him with enough force to knock his hood off.
“Can’t anyone watch where they’re going?!” He snapped angrily running his fingers through his hair.
“I would but considering I can’t see that makes it a tiny bit hard, eh?” The chuckling voice followed.
Youngbae looked down before him and was met with a beautiful crooked smile and misty colored eyes. He blushed and mumbled apologies, embarrassment in his voice. The (boy/girl) smiled and reached forward to where his voice was, patting his cheek lightly.
“How about you apologize with a nice cup of hot chocolate? We could both use it on this cold day. Lead the way.”
Screaming and shouting could be heard from all around Daesung. The members had wanted to go to an amusement park on their day off. He couldn’t disagree with a 4 to 1 vote, especially if this was the first full day they had gotten off of work in weeks. It was freezing cold and looked like a huge storm was coming with light snowfall already dusting the ground, but Jiyong insisted that it would be fine and they should at least try to have fun. Daesung had plastered a smile on his face and trudged behind the rest of the members. Occasionally he would nod or make a noise of agreement but he was mostly silent.
He was tired of being the cause of torment. The car accident had happened years ago and yet people on SNS still brought it up. He was human, he should be allowed to make mistakes. He couldn’t shake that feeling of guilt from his head. No matter how much he tried to play it off as a thing of the past, his cheery personality had mostly disappeared; the only thing left was his fake smiles.
Shaking his head at the bothersome thought he continued to amble behind the group until a mass of people separated them.
Groaning at the being so unlucky, he decided to explore by himself and just meet the members later. The amusement park was mainly full of energetic children and their tired parents. Little ones were running left and right, a couple almost running into him. He smiled softly, happy at least that children could find a way to be happy on such a cold and cloudy day. He was stuck being an adult with the weight of what seemed like everything on his shoulders and yet, they were free.
He kept walking until he saw a peculiar stand. It was full of balloons and parchment for writing. Presumably, one would write a wish on a piece of parchment and put it inside of a balloon taped to a dart board. If one could pop the balloon with a dart, their wish would come true. He walked closer to inspect it, not taking notice to anyone around him; promptly bumping into someone and knocking them to the ground.
“Oh gosh, I’m so sorry!” Daesung exclaimed as he bent down to help the person up.
“It’s quite alright. I made a wish to make a new friend and it looks like it came true.” A soft voice emitted from the (boy/girl) on the ground, them taking Daesung’s hand and standing back up, brushing themselves off. “I’m thankful that I have good aim.”
Daesung stared at the most ethereal person he had ever laid eyes on. He felt a newfound warmth at their positive comment, despite how curious it was. He managed to notice himself finally smiling genuinely.
“Well, I’m glad to have made your wish come true. Would you like to walk with me?”
Seungri walked down the corridor of YG Entertainment, growling to himself. All the other members had been allowed to do solo activities but as soon as he asked YG, he was the only one who got rejected. He had his solos in the past but recently he wanted to do more. He couldn’t fathom a reason as to why he wouldn’t be allowed. Daesung had his solos, as well as Jiyong and Youngbae. The older Seunghyun also had his acting and dramas. Why wasn’t he allowed to do something instead of being pushed aside? He felt like he was being treated coldly whilst his hyungs got the limelight. It wasn’t fair.hyungs got the limelight. It wasn’t fair.
Seungri huffed in annoyance. Well, if YG wouldn’t let him have his solo activities, then he would show him that he had what it took to go solo.
He stomped down the hall to his favorite practice room and threw open the door with a new sense of determination. Instead of being greeted with an empty room, ready for practice, he was greeted with a barefoot (boy/girl) dancing to an old 2NE1 song.
“Hey, you can’t be in here!” Seungri yelled, still a little stunned that he wasn’t alone. After no response from the individual, he stormed over to where they were still dancing and grabbed their shoulder. The (boy/girl) jumped and spun around.
“I said you can’t be in here! God don’t you have ears! Who are you anyway?” Seungri scowled before noticing the persons delicate and clearly stunned features and soft frown.
They shook Seungri’s grip away before padding to a small bench on the other side of the room, picking up what looked like a notepad and pen from the bag sitting on the wood.
I can’t hear you, I’m deaf…
Seungri’s scowl turned into an embarrassed frown.
‘I’m sorry. You’re a new trainee here?’ Seungri signed sloppily.
The (boy/girl)’s face lit up in a breathtaking smile as (he/she) signed back slowly.
‘Yeah, I am.’
Seungri felt like the wind was knocked out of him. One thought ran through his head:
‘I need to see that smile every day.’
SO I found this prompt on Google Images and decided to just roll with it. Daesung’s may or may not be a bit longer than the others due to him being my bias ;-; I hope you like this and please be sure to request some more! <3
ALSO big thanks to @wulferious-fics (my best friend in the whole world) for encouraging me to start writing again and to post this. She also helped with beta reading/editing! Without her this wouldn’t be here! <3
MINOR EDIT: I decided to change the gifs because the song I was listening to when I wrote this was ‘Let’s Not Fall In Love’ by Big Bang (ironically) so I wanted to use gifs from the MV.
