↳ “takes one to know one.”
this is based on the dc universe’s flash. the title is my lame ass trying to be ironic and using a play on of words~
fun fact: this is also inspired by barry and felicity’s little interaction in the beginning of season one which you can watch it here if you’re curious (i re-imagined it a bit though!)
In this world, there are many marvels. They’re extraordinary, impossible, really—that’s the thing though—they are possible. Despite the limits written in textbooks, there are things beyond those levels that can only truly be experiences in ways of which one needs to simply be in the right place at the right time. Sometimes the unexpected is what it is, and those moments you miss in just a blink can mean the whole world. This is a world where gifts can be more than just monetarily purchased or just abilities one has been inclined with through practice; yes, in this world, there are such things as powers and people on the very Earth who can wield these abilities. In other words, these super humans are Metahumans.
The generation has changed in the past few months, though since the return of Jeon Jungkook, he—of all people—know more than the media does. Since his disappearance from the world, the place he once knew has become a playground for a new generation to play where its players are more than meets the eye. They can do things that any normal person could not, they can phase through ways, make objects move within a millisecond, and in his case, he can move faster than the speed of sound.
It’s been exactly a year since the accident where his life literally flashed before his eyes, only for him to wake up in a white, spacious room sterilized to Kim Corp. perfection with enough equipment that cost more than anything he could make in a lifetime, maybe even two to see that he wasn’t dead or normal, per say.
Since his waking, nothing has been the same. Something he’s been considering a blessing and (mostly) a curse. From his own capabilities as a newfound Metahuman and the endless amount of help he can offer to his city to his feelings for Somin to even his feelings for you, and the only thing that’s been on his mind since that moment of conscious was the very fact that he never got to call you back. He never gave you his answer, and it’s taken everything inside of him not to run those two cities over just to tell you how sorry he is and how much he’s idiot because he finally decided to let her go. Not just to choose you as a rebound, but to finally open his heart to you because as you once told him, “love is a choice.”
