But sometimes her father insisted that there had been Achings (or Akins, or Archens, or Akens, or Akenns–spelling had been optional) mentioned in old documents about the area for hundreds and hundreds of years. They had these hills in their bones, he said, and they’d always been shepherds.
Tiffany felt quite proud of this, in an odd way, because it might also be nice to be proud of the fact that your ancestors moved around a bit, too, or occasionally tried new things. But you’ve got to be proud of SOMETHING. And for as long as she could remember, she’d heard her father, and otherwise quiet, slow man, make the Joke, the one that must have been handed down from Aching to Aching for hundreds of years.
He’d say, ‘Another day of work and I’m still Aching,’ or 'I get up Aching and I go to bed Aching,’ or even 'I’m Aching all over.' They weren’t particularly funny after about the third time, but she’d miss it if he didn’t say at least one of them every week. They didn’t have to be funny–they were FATHER jokes. Anyway, however they were spelled, all her ancestors had been Aching to stay, not Aching to leave.

It’s been quite a while since I’ve written anything, hence even on here, and to repay for the time lost, I’ve been quite inspired by Tiffany’s song, no other than the title of this very angsty one-shot: Heartbreak Hotel. The music video, the glimmer and tone of emotions brought out through it is too great to ignore and not find inspiration in, and honestly I was quite impressed with how this came out, so here it is—One Chanyeol one-shot with an extra side of angst and heartbreak (definitely).
Heartbreak Hotel!AU in which Chanyeol, your “boyfriend”, or so you thought, uses the naivety and innocence within you to his own benefit, to realize that things backfire, all the time.
Rated M for suggestive smut, mature themes and alcohol/drug mentions.
Tiffany… Youwere quite excited before coming to Phucket… We’ve been rommates for a long time since training days~ It may be because we’ve known each other for so long, you know how family members usually don’t say things like this, like, I like you… or can’t really express gratitude, and I feel like I’m like that especially with you. I grew up in Korea, you in the US, and the differences in opinions due to cultural differences came as hard at first but now, after trying to match up to each other, we really have no questions about each other. That’s how close we’ve gotten and I like how we are right now. I like you before when we were trainees, but I like you better now. Thanks for presenting me, and the all of us, with so much memories, and we have a long way to go together, so I’ll stop here… - From taeyeon
