one arrogant speech and extended shoe grinding later
Who developed romantic feelings first?
OH BOY definitely Takumi !! he starts to realise that this rivalry is getting a lot more serious, and hey, he wants to be by this guy’s side not just because he’s a fun challenge, he has this way with words and smiles a little too wide that makes you breath catch and is stupidly good looking and - oh.
Who is their biggest “shipper?”
Isami…..he saw through his brother Straight Away, but unlike popular belief doesn’t tease him about it from the get go. he let Takumi sort through his feelings (and internalised homophobia) but gently lets Takumi know that he’s there for him and honestly, he just wants his brother to be happy :”))) even if he has to pull a few strings himself to help his brother hohoho
When did they have their first kiss and under what circumstances?
after they confess to each other, there’s relieved laughter and bumping foreheads and shaking hands, and Takumi, still riding the adrenaline high, leans in and kisses Souma on the corner of his mouth, smile sloppy and honest against Souma’s skin. Souma immediately goes in for a better aimed kiss after Takumi moves away, and there’s no fireworks or popped champagne; but there’s soft sighs and melting fear and that’s enough.
Who confessed their feelings first?
THEY YELLED IT AT EACH OTHER DURING END OF SECOND YEAR LMAO. a fiery argument about avoidance and excuses leads to them screaming confessions and awkward silences and just ?? kk we like each other hahah- wait wHAT TH
orr an alternate confession scene i like equally is Takumi confesses to Souma during graduation but Souma doesn’t reciprocate(or he thinks he doesn’t) and rejects Takumi and all Takumi can do is smile and say “yeah, i know.”
but then months later of unwarranted irritation, Souma sees Takumi tagged in a photo on Instagram and everything hits him at once and he realises he’s made a big miss steak
What was their first official date?
i wish i could say they planned it but god damn, Souma is shit at following plans and Takumi wants/expects too much so they compromise and decide to improvise on the day itself.
so they end up with the same idea: food tour !!!! they spend the entire morning/afternoon exploring the city and all the lil alleyway stores hidden away plus visiting well known restaurant. in the late afternoon till evening they wind up resting on a park bench talking while sharing too sweet soda and too salty fries. they hold hands the entire time and share shy kisses in the shade whenever they can (it sort of becomes a game about who can sneak the most kisses during the date)
How do they feel about double dates/group dates?
sorta eh. they’re not super into the idea but not against it either? dk imo they’d prefer having personal dates but they’re open to having double dates.
What do they do in their down time?
(when they’re not cooking)
Souma watches trash tv while Takumi reads, curled up against Souma. occasionally they’ll make comments about the other’s media of choice. (”you think that book is good? wait till you get to chapter 5″ “are you watching another rerun of csi miami??”)
together though, they enjoy going out together for walks and checking out newly opened shops (any and all types welcomed).
What was the first meeting of parents as an official couple like?
Jouichirou was so. so chill. a surprised blink, then shrugged and absolutely burst into a grin. “i see, i see. so what about my son attracted you, Takumi?” there’s no intimidation or anything bc he already knows Takumi is a competent, dependable and stout hearted person and chef from Central Arc, and is a better person than he ever hoped Souma could find (and spend the rest of his life with).
Toshiaki and Aurora were a lot more surprised (mainly bc Takumi was so closed off about love), though Aurora kinda…expected it. a mother’s sixth sense is hardly ever wrong, and the fluster her elder son gets into when the redhead is mentioned over the phone gives away waaay more than Takumi ever realises. Toshiaki has a quiet talk with Souma (which he testifies to be a lot more scary than his encounter with Aurora earlier in the kitchen) about Takumi, their relationship and future plans. but the couple are quick to accept Souma, it’s hard not to trust and love someone their own son loves so dearly, after all.
What was their first fight over and how did they get past it?
(barring the confession scene fight)
Souma’s wanderlust can’t be contained, and Takumi knows this. but they get engaged young (probs 21ish) and Souma is away more often and gets in contact less than Takumi likes, and it makes him uneasy and worried and he deals with this by overworking.
after too much lack of sleep nearly has Takumi collapsing in the kitchen and one sternly cold phone call by Isami later, Souma rushes back to Italy and confronts Takumi. Takumi has an outburst of more sadness and frustration (towards himself for not being able to articulate his feelings, not being able to handle anything well and not being able to trust Souma fully; “i was the one who said it was okay for you to go, how can i be so selfish as to ask you to come back as and when i want?”) than anger and Souma is fuckin heartbroken.
they end up talking a lot about the importance of communication and letting feelings out and being better fiances to each other that night.
(its not rly a fight bc i cant imagine them fighting over anything more serious than “i told you to tell me when we ran out of milk, this is the third time this month you haven’t, yukihira souma !!!” or getting angry at each other over something actually relevant like their safety or smth lolol)
Which one is more easily made jealous?
oooh this surprises a lot of people but Souma. Souma is so easily made jealous, and the best part is no one can tell? Takumi gets jealous too, but not as easily or as irritated as Souma.
Souma gets all sorts of jealous, like he’ll purposely hold the hand that that weird salesman grabbed for a little too long, snake his arm around Takumi’s waist a little too tightly when he catches someone just looking in Takumi’s direction. his attitude also does a complete 180 when he’s jealous; he’s a lot more curt and annoyed. Takumi finds this weirdly cute.
What is their favourite thing to get to eat?
this is so fuckin cliche but each other’s homecooking :”)))
Who’s the cuddly one? What their favourite cuddling position?
Takumi is the touchy feely one !! he really likes being in contact with Souma in one way or another. fav cuddling position is curled up against Souma’s side or back against Souma’s chest, in between his legs.
Are they hand holders?
YAH TOTALLY. chronic hand holders. try catching them together without holding hands. they especially like twining their fingers together.
How long do they wait before sleeping together for the first time? What’s the circumstances?
……..personally i think they slept together nearing the end of third year? after their finals, during an in between break after finals+results and before their graduation.
Isami was away for a head start in his internship with Momo, and they were alone at Takumi’s apartment. it was raining pretty badly and getting chilly, so Souma suggests sharing blankets when they’re going to bed entirely just to tease Takumi, but Takumi actually crawls under covers with him and Souma’s ?? didn’t expect that but not complaining.
they’re just quietly sitting against the wall, acutely aware of how close they are when Takumi turns to Souma and starts trying to say something but doesn’t, and Souma just kisses him, once, gently. (“just felt like it.” “oh.”) then one kiss leads to another and welp.
((don’t ask takumi why he has a bottle of lube in his bedside drawer, he’ll combust and maybe die.))
they switch, all the time. depends on mood and atmosphere !!
What’s the worst first they’ve ever gotten into?
the first time they ever tried to dirty talk in Italian. Souma started it and it was horrendous. Takumi couldn’t stop laughing for weeks any time he remembered it. he still can’t.
Who does the shopping and the cooking?
Takumi does more of the shopping (though they often do it together) and Souma cooks more !! they try to split the tasks (esp cooking) equally but there’re preferences and they lean towards it.
Which one is more organized and prone to tidiness?
……Takumi. he’s actually tidy on a normal person’s standard. Souma is tidy on his own standard, which is ‘as long as i know where everything is, why does it matter that my desk looks like world war z?’
Souma !! he actually hooks Shinomiya into it - getting them an isolated table at SHINO’s Tokyo for a nice dinner, then going for a short walk to a romantic and private place around the area where he can propose (as recommended by Shinomiya). Souma settles for under a willow tree near the edge of a park, and Takumi cries a lot.
Do they have joined Bachelor/Bacheloette parties or separate?
they have one together !! actually its more of an afterparty with everyone they’ve invited to their wedding !!
Who is the best man/maid of honour? Any other groomsmen or bridesmaids?
Isami is Takumi’s best man ofc. Megumi is Souma’s maid of honour !!
Big Ceremony or Small?
a small ceremony !! not being outed to everyone in the entire world is preferable, esp when they both have insane reputations from graduating Tootsuki as second and third seats.
OHH DEF. idk tho like….probs somewhere ridiculously romantic like Paris. they’re a ridiculously sappy couple. they have fun sightseeing and tasting authentic French cuisine.
Do they have children? How many?
never really thought about it, but they def have dogs, if that counts? two, to be exact. both adopted, one golden retriever named lemonade and a dobermann named stoic. they are aptly named after their characteristics; lemonade is bubbly and fun, stoic is, well, stoic.
something was up with the sound system bc everyone’s voice sounded….higher? even squeaky at some parts lol but at least it didn’t detract from the experience
everyone screamed whenever it was yoongi’s or tae’s turn
screams for jin and hoseok were pretty loud too c:
tae’s growl omg
they seemed really happy and energetic
theyre reALLY TALL omg??
theyre super skinny :( pls eat more
my personal experience:
i arrived at ~8:00 because i was supposed to be volunteering there and help set up, etc, but due to some circumstances i couldn’t so i was just wandering around for a while with my friend
we went back to the venue at ~12:30 and started waiting. all the fans we met there were super nice, super talented, and really friendly!
at about 7 they started letting us in
people were chanting “bts, bts, bts” and screaming a lot even before the video introduction lol
then they showed the introduction video (the one with the mean teacher and whatnot) and then thEY WALKED ONSTAGE and stood there waiting for the music to start. it was so unreal omg seeing them iN REAL LIFE just STANDING THERE omg. anyway i think there were some technical difficulties because the music didn’t start for a while. fans were screaming and cheering until it started.
n.o. started playing, followed by we are bulletproof. i dont remember whether their introductions were before or after hip hop lover, but they all introduced themselves in english and it was all really great.
let me know and rain were beautiful. simply amazing.
BLANKET KICK WAS THE CUTEST THING EVER. i hit my friend when i saw jihope theyre not even my otp wtf
just one day was also really cute and i think everyone was singing along.
after that they started talking again, and they played rock paper scissors. yoongi and jungkook lost, so they had to do aegyo and it was hilarious omg and then jimin came and just like shook his butt at us ughHHh
after look here and propose they showed another video, a continuation of the first one. they come back out after changing and then it wAS NO MORE DREAM and everyone chanted/sang along
AND THEN TOMORROW and tbh it was just crazy and like thighs and body rolls and oh my god
then they said they wanted to “make something together” and so they made us sing miss right and i like it. at first we just had to sing the chorus of miss right and we were pretty bad tbh lolol after “youre my only girl”. and namjoon was like “i know you guys can do better than this!!!” and then they started singing the song and when the chorus came they stopped singing and just pointed the mics at us. so we sang/mumbled and then after the song hoseok was just like “oh wow very good” and he and someone else (either jimin or namjoon i honestly cant remember) imitated us and our singing mumbling thing lolol namjoon was like “theyre learning korean!!!”
and then we sang the chorus for i like it and imo it went better than miss right haha
so after that they sang if i ruled the world and at that point my throat was really hurting so i just like bobbed along enjoying myself
the vocal line went backstage AND THEN CYPHER PT 3 CAME ON AND HELL YEAH everyone went crazy omg. forget about the sore throat i was shouting myself hoarse i think everyone was and hoseok was just wild and namjoon was hyper as hell and suga was omg
and then cypher pt 2 leading into war of hormones from the “nugu ddemune” part and everyone went crazy again and oH MY GOD TAE’S GROWLING/SHOUTING I FELT IT ALL THE WAY IN MY BONES also there was a lot of buttkicking going on
and then danger!!!! everyone sang along and chanted at the right times and it was all very nice
then i need u and all i heard was screaming tbh
BOY IN LUV oh my gOD tae’s growling again it hurt
then they thanked us and went inside
then they showed a video from their predebut days and it was very emotional and i was pretty close to crying and they came back out and performed path and it was really touching honestly
AND THEN DOPE. holy crap i cannot describe in words how amazing it was to see it live. the synchronization is honestly amazing and it was more powerful than it looks in videos if thats even possible and everyone went nuts and yeah
AND THEN IT WAS FUN BOYS/HEUNGTAN AND IT WAS MY JAM AND I WAS ROCKING OUT OMFG
attack on bangtan it was so great but i was getting emotional bc i knew the concert was ending
they thanked us again and i remember jin said he liked chicago pizza bc “its very thick” and suga said he liked chicago bc of the figures that came from here and rapmon said hed heard about chicago from a young age and i remember hobi did his stupid little happy dance and i wanted to cry
they did i need u again and everyone bowed and went backstage except for jin and tae. i think jin was waiting for his part lol bc he went in after he did it. tae went to the middle and bowed and waved and went backstage but he was like peeping out and waving and then he went in for good. everyone kept singing even after they were gone
my ears were still ringing when i left and i feel like they took a part of my soul with them as they walked away too
