just do the choreography

please take a moment to imagine the Federation version of Eurovision as @swordfern and I have envisioned it, in a post-DS9 peaceful future:
-Bajor does something very soothing with hand percussion and like…. background eurythmy dancing but the lyrics are utterly heart-wrenching.
-Betazed is always a fan favorite- they really get into the pop ballads and impressive choreography, and of course aim to inspire ~feelings~
-Romulans do the super intimidating acts like that one song about Moscow Germany did one year.
-Klingons just do fucking opera every time, with intense choreography, generally involving weaponry.
-Andorians do… whatever the andorian version of death metal is. imagine andorian headbanging. with those antennae. imagine.
-the new Cardassian Republic, when it finally gains admittance, is intensely earnest and a bit disco. No one really knows how to react to this.
-Vulcan sends one person with a Vulcan lute and they play an extremely logical arrangement extremely well, with no dancers or any illogical frippery… and they repeat this each year. No one ever votes for Vulcan.

{Special} College!AU Shownu
  • major: statistics 
  • minor: business management 
  • sports: star quarterback of the uni’s football team!!! 
  • clubs: joined math club and at first everyone was like,,,,,are you in the right place??? but shownu was just like “i like math.” and opened up his stat textbook and started doing worksheets for fun. also it’s not a club, but he’s the RA of his dorm floor
  • first things first: everyone always gets the wrong impression of him. like,,,,,,,when they see him in the halls or walking on campus their first thought is like “oh. he’s totally an athlete.” which is correct,,,,but then they’re like “he got in on a sports scholarship,,,,,he probably isn’t that smart,,,,,,,doesn’t he rely only on his muscles?”
  • WELL WRONG
  • shownu is incredibly smart and when people ask what his major is, expecting to hear him say something like “undecided” shownu very calmly and clearly goes “statistics. mathematics is thrilling to me.” with the most serious expression
  • that if you didn’t know him all that well you’d think he was like??? mocking uptight math majors???? but he’s not,,,,,,,,,,he really actually loves math
  • and he’s so naturally gifted at it that he ended up having to do an independent study on probable theory because,,,,,probably theory I and II were too easy for him,,,,,,,
  • the stat teachers absolutely love him because he’s so forward and realistic about everything, he like,,,,,,,,he embodies math
  • i know that sounds funny to say given that he towers over everyone in his class, has shoulders as broad as the ocean, and can probably lift three desks up in one hand 
  • but the way he does things, methodically and without error,,,,,almost robotic,,,,,,is very,,,,,,,,,,,,,,Math
  • but don’t get me wrong, shownu has his charms
  • he’s actually super,,,,,like,,,,,,fatherly like he’s the parent friend of his group because he’s so realistic
  • but it can also be kind of funny because wonho and minhyuk will be talking about a party the sociology majors want to throw and shownu will be like “as long as everyone is back at the dorm by 11.”
  • and maybe it’s the RA in him speaking but minhyuk is just like “shownu,,,,,it’s a party,,,,,,it starts at 11 not ends at 11″ and shownu is like “that isn’t a good idea if you have morning class. don’t you have morning class minhyuk? i would recommend you not go to the party, you get grouchy with no sleep.”
  • and he means it with the best intentions but he sounds like a dad from a movie policing his young son and minhyuk is like I DO NOT GET GROUCHY and wonho is laughing his ass off like minhyuk,,,,,,shownu’s right you’ll just throw a fit in the morning and minhyuk is like no wonho not you too what are you my parenTS
  • it’s also really cute that shownu loves to like,,,,do housework. he’s pretty good at cooking (he calls his mom when he needs a recipe or hyungwon bothers him enough to get him to cook something specific) and he likes keeping things clean
  • sometimes people find him with his glasses on, studying a cookbook that’s called like ‘housewives homey hotpot recipes’ wearing an apron he got as a gift from jooheon and it’s just,,,,,,,endearing
  • because under that he’s got like sweats on with a fitted t-shirt and there’s his muscles,,,,,,you know Being Big 
  • one of the football players on the team joked that shownu should bake some cookies for them if they won the nationals and when they did shownu actually baked a whole bunch of them
  • and they were really good
  • even the coach complimented them
  • and like no offense but whoever said boys can’t be athletic but also adorable-y good at frosting cookies into the shape of little footballs was a liar. shownu exists 
  • most often, when no one is looking, shownu can let himself go a little and like im not saying he breaks out into song in the middle of his dorm dancing to shakira’s hips don’t lie like there’s no tomorrow
  • but if ioi’s pick me comes up on the TV and no one is around to watch like,,,,,,,,,,perhaps he does the choreography JUST A BIT 
  • shownu doing the pick me dance while flipping pancakes though anyWAY
  • he’s an all-around amazing student, athlete, and friend. like he can juggle practicing for a game, data analysis homework, and making sure changkyun doesn’t bring anything from lab into his dorm all at once,,,,,,,,we should all strive to be students like him
  • calls his mom every weekend and tells her everything he did to the last detail like,,,,,,,,,what an actual big soft teddy bear
  • but yes you,,,,,,,,,don’t know shownu at all really. like the mathematics department is far from your department and you’ve never really crossed paths with him
  • you have seen his photo all over the school website, seeing as though he’s always there in some article about football
  • and you don’t really care, even though every one of your friends is always going on about how dreamy of man the star quarterback of the uni really is
  • but you don’t have much time, you’ve been juggling a whole bunch of schoolwork and whatnot that dating,,,,,,,,like,,,,,,,,,,,what,,,,,,,,,,,is that,,,,
  • plus big guys into sports were always loud and too self confident (from what you saw in movies) so you weren’t exactly interested in getting to know more about him
  • speaking of juggling a lot,,,,,you also had another worry on your mind aside from school work and that happened to be the stray kitten you’d found outside the uni’s library over a week ago
  • luckily the weather had been nice and clear so you’d been able to safely sneak over to feed the little kitten during the night 
  • always apologizing to it that you couldn’t take it inside with you, your RA would have your neck if you got caught with an animal
  • but see,,,,,,,this weekend it was supposed to rain. like,,,,,,really hard
  • there was a weather alert on all the roadways and people with saturday classes were all whining about how they’d have to make a dash through the storm to get across campus for class
  • but all your mind fixated on was,,,,,,,,the kitten in that little flimsy cardboard box wouldn’t last out in such heavy rain
  • so even if your RA found out,,,,you were sure that maybe MAYBE you could smuggle the little guy in through your hoodie and keep him inside until the rain passed. then you planned on putting up posters to see if anyone had lost him
  • so, on the evening before the big weekend storm you threw on the biggest hoodie you can find, take some canned cat food as bait, and go out to collect the little guy 
  • thankfully when you got there it looked like no one had yet found him,,,, you could hear his little mewing from the box and you were like hey!!! im glad you’re ok, taking out the food and opening it up
  • but before you could put the can into the box you felt someone behind you, their shadow towering over yours and you froze
  • “what are you doing?”
  • they asked slowly and you were like shit ,,,,,,,shit is it an RA??? slowly you turned and in the slight darkness you couldn’t see exactly who it was
  • but then the person was leaning over, their big hand going toward the box with the kitten 
  • and you grabbed their hand, trying to wrench it away but,,,,,,,,,,,,,you literally couldn’t it was like grabbing a wall why heck were they so strong??
  • but they weren’t shaking you off either and when you locked eyes with this huge, strong person you were like wait -
  • what
  • and the boy looking back at you,,,,,,you’d seen that face before but where,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,oh,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,SHOWNU???
  • and he blinks, looking down at your hand still around his wrist and you’re like UM and you drop it and you’re like “plEASe,,,,,,don’t take the kitten away the storm tomorrow is coming and i just want to keep it safe please don’t hu,,,,,,hurt it,,,,,”
  • and shownu tilts his head and he’s like “hurt it? i was going to take it back to my dorm.”
  • and you’re like ??????? excuse me no I was going to take it back to my dorm
  • but you’re not about to say that to this tall, muscular man 
  • and you’re like “o-oh,,,,,,,,well i,,,,i also,,,,,want,,,,,,wanted,,,,,to take it,,,,,,um,,,,,,,”
  • and you kind of shuffle a bit, feeling uncomfortable because again : you’re alone with this person who could overpower you and it’s just natural to be afraid
  • but then you see shownu carefully pick up the kitten, sitting back on his knees and holding it against his chest
  • and it’s so tiny,,,,,,,,it fits into his palm
  • and he’s like “i didn’t know someone else knew about him” and you’re like,,,,,oh ive known for a week,,,,,,but i didn’t know if i should bring him to a shelter or if someone lost him so,,,,,
  • and shownu nods and he’s like “would it be better if i took him or you” and you’re like “how much of an micromanager is your RA?” and shownu is “im the RA of my floor”
  • and you’re like WELL THEN YOU WIN MY RA WOULD MURDER ME FOR HAVING A PET
  • and shownu can tell by the look on your face when he gets up is one that clearly says ‘i don’t want to part ways with this adorable kitten’ 
  • and so he puts out his hand and he’s like “,,,,,,,,wanna hold him a bit”
  • and you’re like,,,,,,,yes,,,,and you cuddle the little guy up to your chest and you’re like “oh, take this!” and you use your free hand to pass shownu the cat food you’d brought along and you’re like “that way you don’t have to buy another one for tomorrow ^^”
  • and since it’s dark and you’re cooing at the kitten you don’t see how shownu holds the can, looking up at you rather softly because of how sweet that was of you
  • but when you pass him the kitten back you sigh and you’re like “ill trust you with him, but after the storm,,,,,,,i was thinking of making lost flyers for him or something,,,,”
  • shownu doesn’t say anything, but he nods.
  • opening up his hoodie, you see that he’s got a white sleeveless tank under it and once again there are those damn muscles everyone always drooling about
  • ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,and they do look nice,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
  • aNYWAy 
  • and he like puts the kitten in the pocket of the tank and you’re like it’s so small it fits or maybe it’s because the shirt is large because shownu is large???? whatever he’s the math major here
  • and you’re like “,,,,,,,,,ill be going then”
  • and shownu is like “,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,after the storm,,,,,you’ll see him again”
  • and you don’t know if he’s like offering for you to come and see the kitten or if he’s just making a statement but suddenly some of the fear and nervousness you had about him and his ,,,, largeness,,,,, is gone
  • like,,,,,,,,,,,you can’t believe this but is shownu,,,,,,,the shownu from the football team who you’d assume would be cocky and mean,,,,,,,,is actually a Softie
  • (ding ding ding HE IS A SOFTIE)
  • and although you spend the weekend trying to finish up an essay and a project proposal ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,shownu holding that small kitten in his arms keeps flashing through your memory
  • and on monday you can’t help but subconsciously look for him everywhere, even making a purposeful trip toward the math department
  • when suddenly, just as you’re about to give up and head to dorms you feel someones hand on your shoulder
  • and you nEARLY juMP out of your skin with shock but then you hear a familiar, slightly monotone voice go
  • “the kitten is ok, do you want to see him?”
  • and you turn to see shownu, dressed up in a suit, hair slicked back and a briefcase in his other hand and you’re like,,,,,,,????????? 
  • and you can’t help but be like “a-are you going to work?”
  • and he’s like “my minor is business management. there was a mock interview today.”
  • and you’re like OH,,,,,,fancy,,,,,,but also why is that suit so fitted ok not the point the kitten THE KITTEN
  • and you’re like “where is he? did you put him back near the library?”
  • and shownu shakes his head and motions for you to follow him and you figure out quite quickly that you’re going over to the dorms and you’re like ??? “is the kitten still in your room”
  • and shownu, who heads for the stairs of his building nods and you’re like gdi the elevators work fine but ok
  • and when you get to his room, the door is open and you’re surprised to see that the room is really clean,,,,,,,,,like way cleaner than your dorm
  • and shownu sets down the briefcase and takes off the jacket, rolling up the sleeves of his white button down 
  • and you’re like,,,trying not to stare, looking at everything else except him
  • and he pulls the little cardboard box off his desk and into his lap and picks the kitten up and you can see that the little guy is happy
  • meowing out loud and nuzzling its tiny face against shownu’s hand
  • and shownu holds it out and he’s like “here”
  • and you take the kitten, sitting down on the bed beside him and you’re like “it looks like he’s gaining weight!!! im so happy he’s healthy,,,,,”
  • and you see from the corner of your eye, a small smile tug at shownu’s lips
  • and then you see how the corners of his eyes crinkle just a bit along with the happy expression on his face
  • and wow ok everything you said before about not finding him adorable ,,,,,, weLL ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
  • but you’re startled when you hear someone come in and another boy is like “oh hyung, am i interrupting something?”
  • and shownu gets up and he’s like “jooheon, this is the other person who took care of the stray with me”
  • and you put down the kitten to introduce yourself to jooheon who looks you up and down and then shifts his eyes to shownu
  • and he’s like quiet for a moment before going “,,,,,,,,,,,,are you two a thing?”
  • and you’re like WHAT and shownu, with no change in expression is like “what do you mean?”
  • and jooheon looks to you for an answer (since his hyung is really so damn dense) and you’re like “n-n-n-no we just met on friday,,,,im just here to see the kitten,,,,,,”
  • and jooheon, who seemingly has a sparkle in his eye is like “huh, so how do you like shownu?” and you’re like ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,he’s??????/nice
  • and shownu is like why are you asking them that
  • and jooheon just shrugs, shoving his hands into his pockets and he’s like “that kitten is lucky to have two caring parents like you”
  • and you’re like PARENTS and shownu is like “kittens can’t have human parents”
  • and jooheon is like i gtg see minhyuk and kihyun right now immediately and you’re like who???? and jooheon is already gone as shownu sits back down on the bed and is like “he’s going to go gossip, ignore it”
  • and you’re like gossip???? about????/ us???????? oh my g OD??
  • but shownu is back to mindlessly playing with the kitten and tbh who cares about anything when there is a kitten involved
  • and somehow at the end of this, you find yourself with shownu’s number in your phone and you guys agree on planning someway to get this kitten back to their owners or to a good shelter
  • and you find yourself texting him,,,,,,,,,,about other things as well
  • maybe it’s because one day he asks ‘have you eaten’ and you end up asking about his mock interviews and stat homework
  • and shownu isn’t much of a talker, his texts are rather short and to the point too
  • but ,,,,,,,,,,,,, shownu is an extremely good caretaker
  • like whenever you’re over to see the kitten and work on making flyers with him
  • shownu makes sure you’re not hungry or too cold or too hot and if he plays music he keeps the volume low so as to not disturb you and he’s always telling you to sit at his desk and work on a flyer while he takes the uncomfortable floor
  • and he even starts to pick up on your habits like,,,,,you always forget your phone under your bag before you leave and he’s gotten into routine of picking it up off the desk and slipping it into your bag before you go
  • and he tells you that he bought the same brand of cat food you get for the kitten since you always bring it over
  • and then he tells you to work hard for your test coming up that you told him like a week ago
  • and shownu,,,,,before he even knows it himself jooheon is sitting with him in the dorm one night as shownu is finishing up the last flyer of his
  • and jooheon is like “you really like them right?”
  • and shownu is like “they’re a kind person”
  • and jooheon rolls his eyes and is like “yes, but you like them,,,,,,,a lot.”
  • and shownu stops coloring and he’s like “no i don’t.”
  • and jooheon nearly drops his phone on his face laughing and he’s like “hyung, you’re literally drawing cartoon kittens for this person and you even bought snacks that they like for when they come over. you like them.”
  • shownu kind of just looks down at the coloring pencil in his hand. ‘lost cat’ written in bold letters, clumsy kitten faces he’s been trying to get better at drawing scribbled across the paper
  • and he’s like,,,,,,,,,,oh
  • and you don’t want to admit it to yourself but god you even find yourself looking over at the football field as you’re walking past it to get off campus and go into the city to hang up flyers
  • and you can hear the coach yell from so far away and,,,,,,you can see him. shownu,,,,,in his uniform running across the field
  • and he looks amazing in the uniform and you’re like “Get IT TOGETHER” @ yourself 
  • and you focus on putting up the flyers
  • but that night you get a text for shownu and it’s like “were you ok today?”
  • and you’re like yeah!! i put up a lot of flyers but there’s some more left over that i want to put around campus too
  • and shownu texts back that he’ll help you and that you guys should meet at 1 tomorrow
  • and you get up immediately because right. you need to wear something nice,,,,,,,or do you,,,,,,,,,,,it’s just shownu,,,,,,,,,,,,but,,,,,
  • and you get back into bed and you’re like it’s nothing. you two are just hanging out because of this kitten that’s it
  • but when you see shownu waiting for you, leaning against the wall of the library in casual ripped up jeans, white t-shirt and bedhead hair you’re like oooooohhhhh here we go again with my heart skipping a beat and whatnot
  • and you go around campus with him and people are doing doubletakes, but shownu seems used to the attention and you get the remaining flyers up when suddenly shownu is like “we should put one up there at the top of the bulletin but i can’t reach”
  • and you’re like well if you can’t reach neither can i
  • and shownu is like “get on my shoulders.”
  • and you’re like,,,,,,,,,,,,,,hold up 
  • and he’s like crouching down and patting his back and you’re turning a bit red
  • and you’re like “i,,,,,,don’t think-”
  • but he’s seriously not getting back up and you’re like, taking a breath and you’re like ok. it’ll be fast,,,,,
  • but wow ok getting on his shoulders and feeling his strong arms lock around you safely like GOD dammit why is he a perfect strong person
  • and you tape up the flyer and shownu lets you down so gently
  • and you’re just so embarrassed and flustered and shownu is like “we’re all done.”
  • and you’re like,,,,,,,,,,  “th–thank you for,,,,,,,all your help” and shownu is like “we found him together, we should take care of him together”
  • and you’re like TO g,,,,ether,,,,but you’re also like yeah!!!! but in your head you’re like after we find his owner though,,,,won’t that together not be important anymore??
  • but shownu puts down his head suddenly and he’s like “jooheon told me something funny.”
  • and you’re like ??? “like a joke?” and shownu is still not looking up at you and he’s like 
  • “,,,,,,,,he told me i liked you”
  • and you’re like OH,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,um do you?
  • and shownu, running his hand through his hair picks up his head and is like ,,,,,,,,,,, “would that be alright?”
  • and he looks like a little shy kitten himself, his shy smile, his usually hard to read expression soft and his voice shaking just ever so slightly even though it’s usually deep and clear
  • and you want to be like is it alright????? it’s great????? it’s the best thing in the WORLD
  • but you’re also like i need to compose myself and you’re like “of course, is it,,,,,,alright if i like you too?”
  • and shownu straightens up, nodding slowly and you’re like WELL,,,,,that’s good it’s alright for both of us that’s,,,,a+,,,,,
  • but then you feel shownu’s hand against your cheek and you’re like oh what is he- is he going to kiss-
  • but before he can even lean in he stops and is like “no no no we shouldn’t in public”
  • and you stop for a second before bursting into giggles because fkhdsd how is he so shy and proper ,,,, it’s college everyone’s practically in each others pants all the time but,,,,,,,,it’s nice
  • and when shownu and you get back to his dorm, shownu announces that he’s going to kiss you for real this time
  • and you’re like you don’t have to say it,,,,you can just do it and he’s like im sorry i just wanted to check and you’re like ksdhgjfs how are you SO CUTE
  • and you feel so safe and protected when he pulls you into his arms by your waist and nuzzles his nose against yours before softly pressing his lips to your own
  • and you’re like,,,,,,,wow,,,,,,,,,he’s so,,,,,,,,careful with how he kisses it’s like he doesn’t want to break you
  • and you literally have to be the one to take the lead and shownu when he pulls back has got wide eyes and you’re like “too much??” but he just shakes his head and leans in again
  • jooheon walks in on you two basically making out and he’s like “i KNEW IT” and you want to say something but shownu is too busy telling jooheon to get out while also trying to pull your shirt back down
  • and it’s a mess
  • but do believe the entire campus knows two seconds later that you and shownu are an Item
  • mostly because jooheon looked so giddy that kihyun was just like “oh shownu is dating now?” and jooheon was like HOW DID YOU KNOW I DIDNT EVEN SAY ANYTHING
  • and kihyun was like ur face gave it away loser
  • and you get a flurry of texts from literally everyone you know on campus demanding you tell them the story of how you met and how in the world you scored THE QUARTERBACK of the uni’s basketball team
  • and you’re like “we meet,,,,,,,because we’re both good people also yes he’s the quarterback but did you know he’s a stat major and also a pretty ok cook he’s actually a lot more than just a buff dude appreciate my MAN”
  • and you both still concentrate on hoping to find the owner of the lost kitten,,,,and it’s only after you get a call from a very VERY happy mother saying she’d been looking for her daughters kitten who managed to escape only days after they’d brought her home
  • do you and shownu succeed in your mission to save the kitten and celebrate with a cute date to the nearby diner were you sit beside him, his arm around your shoulder and you feed him fries and you guys look through the pictures you’d taken of the kitten before you gave him back to the mom
  • and shownu has a lot of games thanks to how popular the uni’s football team is and even though you’ve never been a big fan of the sport - you go whenever you can and watch shownu intently, getting worked up when he falls over or gets tackled
  • and when you see him after, you practically push through the crowds to get to him
  • and when you do, he has to literally catch you because you’re like “are you hurt???? im so worried that tackle looked so painful???”
  • and shownu just smiles, kissing your forehead and telling you he’s fine
  • but shownu does the same with you,,,,,tbh if he doesn’t see you for a week and you finally meetup just to cuddle under the blankets and study for your classes you hear him whisper against your hair
  • that you’re so important, and that not having you near him makes him feel like he can’t be completely calm
  • that you relax him, with kisses to his lips that remind him that you’re ok
  • and it’s minhyuk who remembers you and shownu’s 100th day and he gets everyone together to throw you guys a surprise party
  • and you and shownu both have no clue until you walk into the common room and the lights come up and there’s wonho in a party hat, kihyun throwing confetti in your face and hyungwon holding a cake. jooheon puts headbands with hearts on them on your head and changkyun puts on some sappy love song and everyone is chanting that you two kiss
  • and you’re both like “we forgot today was our 100th dat” and minhyuk is like LMAO BUT I DIDNT NOW KISS wonho get the camera ready
  • and it’s cute you and shownu kiss, getting embarrassed because it’s infront of everyone while jooheon is like “they didn’t look that embarrassed when i walked in on the- ok hyung please don’t kill mE”
  • and you guys are supposed to cut the cake but you get some icing on shownu’s cheek and he puts some on your nose
  • and you guys even up with a mess
  • but it’s fun, all your friends and his friends are there supporting you
  • and, like the good RA he is, shownu ends the party before midnight and minhyuk is like “dammit i wanted to karoke love will go on for you two but whatever”
  • and once everyone is gone jooheon ‘casually’ lets shownu know that he’ll be staying over at minhyuk’s place tonight
  • and shownu is holding you as you’re together in his dorm,,,,and you’re like “a good RA should tell me i can’t be here,,,,,,,,” and shownu is like “i don’t want to be a good RA, right now”
  • and tbh,,,,,,shownu is strong and looks like he could break wood with his hand but his touch is literally the most tender,,,,,,compassionate,,,,,feeling
  • and his lips over yours makes you feel that he’s kissing a treasure, something so sacred and important
  • and you really feel connected to him because shownu never lets your hand go
  • and after he’s kissing up your jaw, pushing your hair back from your sweaty forehead
  • and you just can’t with how amazing he is you literally get on top and start kissing him again and shownu is like!!!!!!!!!!! but he isn’t going to say no,,,,,,,he really loves your enthusiasm
  • and you wear shownu’s jersey as a joke one day but shownu seriously gets addicted to the sight and keeps trying to get you to wear it again
  • and you guys aren’t a PDA, loud couple you’re just subtle and caring and shownu prioritizes you like the angelic boyfriend he is
  • and you’ll be like “oh i really crave korean food” and shownu will be like “korean food it is” and changkyun is like “i want burger-” and shownu is like “korean food changkyun, korean. food.”
  • and you’re like im sorry to changkyun as shownu takes your hand and changkyun is just like,,,,,,,we’re not shownu’s number ones anymore sniffles
  • even if you don’t do sports you got a matching tracksuit with shownu and he would most definitely be like “let’s start working out together”
  • except his routine could kill any normal person and so you’re like “please spare me, but i will try my best”
  • shownu really loves going to the beach but everytime you guys go as a group he’s like “wear a hoodie”
  • and you’re like “it’s 90 degrees out”
  • and shownu is like,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, “still. put a towel over yourself” and you’re like oh my god
  • studies his stat homework in his sleep and you’re like ,,,,,,,,,,, shownu please shush
  • the kind of boyfriend where even if you burnt all the food you made him he’d eat it with a smile and ask for more and you’re his absolute everything. you’re his warmth
  • (literally called you the warmth of his heart and hyungwon was like bro,,,,,that’s so poetic,,,,,,,,,,,i never knew you had it in you)

Yuri on Ice BD choreography commentary translation - Volume 2

Awfully behind schedule due to my throat dying because of all the air conditioning at work and other stuff stealing my time, but here it is finally, the last part of the BD/DVD vol.2. Once again it’s a translation of the complete script. The commentary is by Kenji Miyamoto & Mitsurou Kubo. This time it’s Yuri’s SP and Yuuri’s FS.

Notes:
-It’s two people talking, not a written interview, so expect them to hop from one subject to another within the same sentence… Even if it sounds a bit unconnected at times, that’s how they said it.
-I still arranged it a little to make it easier to understand as written material, by removing lots of “ehm” “uuhm” “you know” “yes” (I especially removed all instances where someone says “yes” in the middle of the other speaking) and fumbled words.
-Amusingly enough both their initials are KM/MK, but I used the surname initials so M is Miyamoto and K is Kubo.
-I put (LOL) when they’re laughing because otherwise some lines might sound serious while they’re actually joking.

***VERY IMPORTANT***
Do NOT use this translation for subtitles, in ANY way.

I don’t support the upload of bonuses contained in BDs/DVDs, as they are meant to be (as the word says) bonuses for the people who spent money to purchase them. If you like a series so much that you absolutely need to watch the bonus contents, please buy the BDs/DVDs.


Kubo: Hello, I’m the original planner Mitsurou Kubo.
Miyamoto: Hello, I’m the choreographer Kenji Miyamoto.
K: Ah, Kenji-sensei. It’s been a while.
M: It’s been a while.
K: Ok, today we are going to look back on the choreography of Yuri Plisetsky’s short program, “Ai ni Tsuite ~Agape~”. This time, for the first time, Kenji-sensei is not the one performing the choreography. But you created it, didn’t you?
M: Yes, I did.
K: This time, Yuri Plisetsky still has the body of a 15 years old boy, so you know, we thought that if possible we would like to ask someone else to perform it. The reason is that this footage is an important reference when translating the choreographies into animation, and changing Kenji-sensei’s body into that of a young boy would have required quite a lot of work.
M: Ah, so it was for that reason.
K: Yeah.
M: I see.
K: So basically we said that a girl, a girl of small build, would be nice, and we asked Kenji-sensei to look for a person like that.
M: Yes. Honoka Kawanishi-chan.
K: Yes. She’s a 20 years old university student, and she even participated in the university’s Miss Campus contest…
M: Really?
K: Well, isn’t she really pretty?
M: Yeah, she’s a beautiful girl.
K: I was like, nice job Kenji-sensei for bringing such a girl!
M: When she was still a competitive figure skater she impressed me because she could dance really well.
K: You didn’t do choreographies for her at that time?
M: No, I didn’t. This was the first time, but really, she learned the choreography very quickly.
K: That’s right.
M: Yeah.
K: He was creating the choreographies at night, we had very little time, and I guess, there are skaters who learn faster and skaters who are slower, right?
M: Yes, and also, I think she was moving very close to the way I was imagining the choreography, so we could go on very smoothly.
K: We also had that impression watching, like, she was absorbing everything so quickly and she danced very boldly, she was really amazing.
M: And this hairstyle, too.
K: Yes, we wanted to draw Yuri with flowing bobbed hair, so we asked her not to tie her hair, to let it loose when she was skating, and you know, skating with loose hair is something that you don’t see in tournaments, so it was really nice to watch~.
M: It’s nice, it looks very dynamic.
K: Thank you. Hah~. So this was Yuri Plisetsky’s short program, “Ai ni Tsuite ~Agape~”.

K: “Really nice to watch~”, I made a face like an old man (LOL). Ok, next up is Yuuri Katsuki’s free skating. The song is “Yuri on ICE”. Uh.. (LOL)
M: Everyone’s laughing at me (LOL).
K: This part, of course the ones who watched the anime know it already, but we asked Kenji-sensei to start from the point where Victor hugs Yuuri from behind..
M: Yes (LOL).
K: Sorry, it’s just somehow amusing (LOL).
M: When I turned around everyone was laughing.
K: (LOL). But actually, it became a really nice scene. Ok. Regarding this “Yuri on ICE”, when we were creating the story later on I decided the title and made it “Yuri on ICE”, but in fact, when we filmed this footage the title hadn’t been decided yet, we just had the song ready, and the story wasn’t finished either, so we just asked Kenji-sensei to do the choreography in the meantime. This time I couldn’t physically be there, but what instructions did the director give you?
M: I’d say, “director, what do you think about this?”, and she’d be like “yeah, that’s good”.
K: (LOL)
M: I said “And this, what about this?”, and she was like “yes, I think that’s nice”. No matter what I said she always replied “yes”.
K: In other words, you were also kind of anxious too.
M: Yes, I didn’t really understand the story completely, so..
K: Yeah.
M: But I was asked to create a program that could win in a tournament, a well done program, and when I listened to this song, this delicate music, I wanted to create a choreography that would look like an ink painting, like thin streaks that vanish as they stream.
K: Hearing this, you know, I’m not sure whether it’s actually connected, but the opening is really that way, like an ink painting, with colors that spread out as the song plays, and I thought that it looks like it’s connected.
M: I was very surprised when I watched it.
K: Ah!
M: I was like, “ah, so they made it like this”…
K: But seriously, this choreography is really… In the beginning, Yuuri Katsuki has just started figure skating and has many worries, then in the scene where he meets Victor the sounds become richer, and we asked to make the choreography so that it would leave a stronger impression too, but the way you glide in that smo~oth line is really nice. Even in the animation version it’s breathtakingly beautiful. And…
M: Today’s socks are lime green (LOL).
K: (LOL). Yeah, we have explained this in vol.1 too, but basically it’s not like Kenji-sensei fancies this kind of fashion, he wore different gloves and socks to make the left and right legs different. Normally he’s a fashionable person.
M: You don’t have to say that (LOL). But this, you know, I really used up a lot of stamina to skate it.
K: Ooh.
M: That axel after a forward counter is quite difficult.
K: (LOL). Indeed, we asked to create a FS that could win the Grand Prix Final, so the movements leading to jumps, and all the other elements, are all made so that you can get a high level. Kenji-sensei did a lot of things (LOL).
M: Yeah (LOL).
K: Sorry for saying it a bit vaguely.
M: That’s ok. This part too, it has an outside rocker cluster with combined movements of the upper body, though my foot touched the ground a little (LOL). It’s made to get level 4, I mean, I’m not sure one could get it, but it’s made so that it’s possible to get it.
K: I heard that some real figure skaters said they wanted to skate this.
M: Yes, that’s true. I was asked to make a choreography for this song, but I replied that it would be better to wait some more time. It’s quite popular actually.
K: I really want someone to skate it! Seriously, the song is a bit too short for a competitive program, but someone could like, make it a bit longer, edit it, and skate it.
M: (LOL).
K: Ah, yes, in the end, he looks in Victor’s direction, points his fingers at him, and the song is complete.
M: My hair is so flat (LOL).
K: Yeah, kind of…
M: It was night in the end.
K: Yeah, it was night. All the clocks visible in the footage are showing past 12:00, but that’s not 1:00 or 2:00 in the afternoon, you know.
M: It was pitch black (LOL).
K: Yeah, it was. But really, now that I hear from Kenji-sensei that there are real skaters who are watching “Yuri on Ice” and want to skate this song… So is it popular?
M: Yeah, this song is popular, and, it’s a different story, but at the rink I went to the other day there was a boy who started skating after watching “Yuri on Ice”.
K: Great!!!!
M: When I told him that I was the one who made the choreographies, he was like “uwaaah”.
K: I’m so happy.
M: It’s nice to see things like this happen.
K: Yeah, I mean, of course grown-up women like this anime too, but I hope that young male skaters who are thinking of starting now or who are already skating, people from all over the world, can feel figure skating as something closer to themselves and continue it.
M: Yes.
K: You also said that you’d like people to feel figure skating as something closer, right?
M: Yeah, I think so.
K: You know, I’m really happy to hear that in some way, even just a little, this is becoming true.
M: I agree.
K: Ah, sorry, I’m wrapping it up a bit in a hurry. So, we have watched the choreographies of vol.2. Let’s meet again in vol.3! Please say something too (LOL).
M: (LOL).

I’m just doing my happy dance!


“Happy Dance” by Futuristic | Choreography by David Moore

ft. dancers: Jake Deanda, David Moore, and Jason Rodelo

Let’s just go oldest to youngest with this…I’ll try not to get too in depth (even though I could go paragraphs and novels long ‘cause I honestly love these guys)

Firstly, our leader, Shownu!

The one thing I appreciate about Shownu is his indomitable will and his constant stability. When they say his broad back and shoulders are the most attractive things about him–I see it metaphorically. He carries so much on his shoulders but he still manages to remain cool, calm and confident–giving the members someone to look to when/if they falter. He carries the members on his back and allows all of them to grow as idols. I’m truly grateful that Monsta X is blessed with such a reliable leader.

Now onto my love, Wonho. Oh dear…this could take a minute or a year…

There’s a lot I appreciate about Wonho. But just to name one, I appreciate how much he cares. So many people in this day and age fall into the easier choice of “not giving a damn” or saying “fuck it” when they come across obstacles. But those words will never leave Wonho’s lips. The guy does not give up because his heart is strong and unwavering. His passion and seriousness about what he does is truly inspiring to me. He cares about his members, about us, about music, his family–he just wears his heart on his sleeve. He shows us his vulnerabilities, his weaknesses, his emotions and thoughts. He is not afraid to care about something when others do not. He has strong values/beliefs and he is a true hero!!!

Ok…let me calm down now.

Next is Minhyuk!

One thing I appreciate about the sun Minhyuk, is that he’s always bringing that spiciness to the table. He’s not afraid to be brash or silly. I can tell the other members feed off of his vibe and his outgoing nature–they feel more comfortable if he is. And if he is hyper, then MX is even more hyper! Minhyuk is the best when he’s not overthinking things–such as wondering if a broadcast is going well or not. He’s already a natural for variety shows; he’s very funny and good at talking. I appreciate him speaking his mind and always wanting to make things more interesting–adding his spice to the Monsta X stew and amping it up just a little bit more.

Now Mama Kihyun!

It may be obvious, but I really appreciate Kihyun for always confidently and strongly being our main vocal. He’s so reliable and powerful for being a “teeny guy.” Just imagine having to sing the main chorus and also doing the choreography at the same time. The chorus has to be the strongest part of the song because it’s the main melody. It must be so tiring to sing whole-heartedly while doing the dance moves too. I also want to mention how loving Kihyun is as a person. He’s not called the mom of the group for nothing! I feel like he always has a third eye open for the other members. He’s very good at determining how each of them are feeling individually and then making sure they’re taken care of.

What to say about my boy Chae Hyungwon…

I feel like Hyungwon is always himself all the time. He’s comfortable in his skin and just a cool, laid back guy. The thing I appreciate about him is that whether it’s vlive, a variety show, or interview, Hyungwon is always the same–he’s always a constant. He doesn’t pretend to act like he’s something he’s not. Regardless of people always just looking at him for his handsome face, he acts goofy, makes funny faces, says blunt shit, and is as crazy as the rest of Monsta X. In addition to that, sometimes you just need a member that makes you go…”Hm…I’m really glad you’re here.” Their aura and presence in the room is just always appreciated. And to me, that person is Hyungwon.

Time for Joo honey time yon!

The thing I appreciate about Jooheon is that he’s always doing it 100%. When they’re performing on stage, even when the other members look tired or close to being “done,” Jooheon is always doing it 100%. He always has as much energy and enthusiasm as he did during a first comeback stage. That makes me realize that he really wants to be there on that stage. He really wants to be a rapper and idol. And he really does shine and belong up there. Also, regardless of being so aggressive on stage, he’s so precious and sweet as a person. I appreciate and love that he doesn’t try to maintain some kind of badass persona off-stage and he wants others to see his pure heart and loving personality.

Soooooo Changkyun…

I mean what can I say about this guy! Both Wonho and I appreciate his very existence! But most of all, his personality…he is so down-to-earth and cool. Such a cute maknae but he’s so mature and level-headed at the same time. I appreciate how observant he is. He sees and notices things that people usually don’t. If another member is feeling sad or different than usual, I feel like he’d be the first to notice. And, of course, because he’s so touchy, he would comfort them with a pat on the back or a hand on the knee. He’s good at reading the atmosphere and acting accordingly. Besides Wonho, Changkyun is the member that I can really relate to. 

Ok, I’m done!

BIGBANG | Their Dancer s/o Does Sexy Choreography With Another Idol Group

Anonymous said:

Big bang (+ vixx if you aren’t busy) reaction to their dancer s/o being apart of a sexy choreography with another idol group? :) i really love your blog! All your stories are great xx


G Dragon/Jiyong: 
He wouldn’t even be paying attention to the fact that it was a sexy choreography, he’d more so be questioning why you were dancing with another group. “Who approved this? Last time I checked Y/N only danced for BIGBANG and on my solo tours….”

“Ji…what’s with the face?” you questioned, seeing him looking around very confused.

“You’re doing choreography with Mino…and a sexy concept?” he questioned.

“Oh…yeah…one of his backups was sick and I was randomly chosen,” you said, “Luck of the draw…”

“Right…luck of the draw.”

*pouty glare* “Y/N never told me about this…his hands seem a bit low…”

“Oh, you’re watching the performance from last week,” you said, walking into the practice room and seeing Seunghyun on his laptop, “Sorry I didn’t tell you about that…”

“He seems a little too handsy,” he said.

“It was part of the choreo, don’t think too much on it.”

Taeyang/Youngbae:
Since you convienietly forgot to tell him this, as his “payback”. He pays a little closer attention to one of the other one of his backup dancers.

“If I had told you, you would’ve gotten all protective and not wanted me to dance with another group…but since I didn’t you’re being a giant pain in the ass and paying more attention to one of your other backup dancers,” you said.

“I was just checking the other talent that I had…ya never know…you might decide to spend more time dancing for iKON…”

“Green is not a good color for you Youngbae…it was just a dance.”

“I got an offer to do some choreography with another group…I know I normally just BIGBANG and your solo tours, but this is a chance to spread my wings a bit,” you said wanting to break your good news gently to Dae, saying as he might not take it as well.

“That’s great, Y/N…who are you working with?” he questioned, feeling excited for you.

“Well…I’m being loaned out for one of Jay Park’s videos,” you said with a smile. His smile slightly faded from his face and you grew concerned. “You okay?”

“Yep, I’m great,” he said, forcing a smile, “I’m really happy for you, Y/N.”

Seungri:
“Y/N! Hey, hi, how’s the choreo going?” Seungri questioned, showing up at the MV set to spy on what was happening.

“What are you doing here?” you questioned.

“I brought you lunch,” he replied, holding up the take-out back, “Whaaaat are you wearing?”

You looked down at your outfit, or lack there of and rolled your eyes. “It’s not like I’m flashing anyone so will you-”

“If that skirt goes up any further, you will be…now would you put some clothes on?”

“No…now go home…”

Title: Boyfriend vs Best Friend

Words: 3.6k

Genre: angst??

A/N: Okay, so I’m hoping to make this the start of a new seires. It’s all really based off a recent dream that I had and I hope it turned out as well as I imagined it. After this part is posted, I plan on making a separate ending for each boy so you can chose who you prefer to end up with. I also plan on doing this for the rest of the members, so if you end up enjoying it, please let me know so I can try and get these parts out as soon as possible! Thank you!



Soonyoung felt sick to his stomach. And no, this wasn’t because of the bad sushi he had ended up eating for lunch, but rather because of the couple across the room from him. There sat across the room his group mate along with his best friend, basically flirting their asses off as he watched from afar. In all honesty, it had been his own fault that he was so jealous over their relationship. If he had introduced [y/n] to his group members, she would have never met her current boyfriend, Jihoon.

Soonyoung has been madly in love with [y/n] ever since they were kids. He remembers specifically being the outcast in their primary school days. Everyone thought he was weird and ‘girly’ all because he loved to do dance. He tried to be social and he tried to fit in, but no matter how hard he tried his class mates would always push him away and tell him that he was too abnormal to hang out with him. He had lost a lot of self-esteem and social confidence throughout that experience. It wasn’t until one day when a new transfer student had arrived at his school and sat down next to him on the bench outside at the playground. The young girl had introduced herself as [y/n] and asked him if he would like to be her new best friend. Ever since then the two of them had been glued to each other’s side, even all throughout their high school years into Soonyoung’s pledis trainee days.

The day he introduced [y/n] to the rest of seventeen was the biggest mistake of his life. No, he doesn’t mean it in a mean way, it’s just that the day he introduced her was the day he had actually lost her. At first the flirting between both Jihoon and [y/n] seemed playful and harmless as if they were just a pair of casual friends, but somehow and in some way Jihoon had ended up asking out [y/n] before Soonyoung even got the chance to confess, not that he would have the balls to anyways.

Soonyoung groaned as he watched the couple share a quick kiss from across the room. Both [y/n] and Jihoon looked up at the dancer with a quizzical look.

“Is something the matter, Soonyoungie?” [y/n] asked.

“Uh yeah! I’m in love with my best friend but she’s dating my group mate instead and I’m not okay with that!”

 

He wanted so badly to scream that out loud, but he bit his lip to prevent himself from doing so.

“Uh yeah, I’m just having trouble thinking about what choreography to create for out newest single,” Soonyoung answered.

[y/n] sent him one of her heartwarming smiles. Soonyoung swore he melted at the sight of her as butterflies fluttered inside his stomach.

“I know you’ll do great, Soonyoung!” She exclaimed, “If you’re having trouble, maybe you could ask Jihoon for help. He did want to become a part of the performance team originally.”

“I’ll be sure to take that into consideration,” He stated as he stood up, “I’m going to go to the practice room and try to dance around for a bit, don’t miss me too much.”

Soonyoung walked over to [y/n] and ruffled her hair before leaving the room and closing the door behind him. After he did so, [y/n] fixed her hair and turned back to her boyfriend. She furrowed her brows in confusion as she looked at Jihoon.

“Did he seem kind of ‘off’ to you?” She asked.

Jihoon shrugged his shoulder and grabbed [y/n]’s hands in his own.

“Maybe he got annoyed with the skinship we were doing together. It’s not something I do in front of people usually.”

“I understand, but I’ve known Soonyoung my entire life and he’s never really acted like this before. You should know, the two of you have been trainees with each other for years, I’d even go as far to say that you are best friends, maybe even brothers!”

Jihoon sighed and caressed [y/n]’s faces with his thumb gently. He smiled at her softly before pushing some of her hair out of her eyes.

“You want me to go talk to him,” He stated bluntly.

[y/n] nodded and kissed his nose softly.

“You guys are way closer than the two of us are. It must be a guy thing. If anyone can get him to open up, it’s you.”

Jihoon chuckled slightly.

“Don’t you think it’s the opposite way around? He’s been your childhood friends, the two of you guys are basically siblings. He’s probably told you everything,” Jihoon stated as he crossed his arms over his chest.

“Jihoon,” [y/n] started, “As close as Soonyoung and I seem, he’s always had an issue with opening up to me. There’s something that’s been bothering him ever since you and I first met. I’ve tried to get him to tell me but he shakes it off saying it’s fine. Can you please just ask him, or at least try…for me?”

Jihoon sighed and nodded his head slightly. He looked up at his girlfriend with a slight pout and soften his look on her.

“You’re lucky I love you,” He answered.

[y/n] squealed in excitement as she leaned forwards and placed a loving kiss onto her boyfriend’s pout. Jihoon fixed his pout and smirked slightly to himself as he kissed her back. Once the two of them pulled apart, [y/n] pushed Jihoon off the sofa slightly and motioned for him to follow Soonyoung to the practice room.

 

Jihoon shoved his hands into his pocket as he rounded the corner that lead to the designated practice room for Seventeen. To be honest, Jihoon wasn’t really looking forward to having a deep talk with Soonyoung. It wasn’t that he had anything against him, but ever since he and his girlfriend got together, he’s seemed a little distant and awkward, especially around Jihoon. Maybe it was just the thought of his two best friends dating, but whatever it was, he and Soonyoung definatly weren’t as close as they used to be back in the pre-debut years.

Loud music of their newest song echoed into the hallway as Jihoon finally reached the door. He could hear the sound of feet scuffing across the floor until it came to an ubrupt stop and a loud groan that followed. The music stopped playing completely and it was silent for a few seconds. Jihoon took that as his queue to walk in, but the second he put his hand on the door knob, a voice from behind made him retract.

“You don’t seem completely focused, Hyung,”

It was Chan.

“I’ve just got a lot of things on my mind. Things you wouldn’t really understand,” Soonyoung’s voice echoed.

“What things, maybe I can help,” Chan replied.

Jihoon couldn’t tell what was going on, but he heard the shuffling of feet walking across the floor. Jihoon stood up on his tip toes so he could get a peak of what was happening from the small window on the door. He saw Chan walking closer to Soonyoung, stopping in front of his hyung and looking up at him.

“Like I said, you wouldn’t understand. It’s too difficult for a young one like you to understand,” Soonyoung said as he walked over towards the mirror that was plastered along the wall.

“You never know until you ask,” Chan piped up, “Plus, if something is bothering you it usually helps to tell someone about it. You know, just to get it off your chest instead of keeping it bottled inside.”

Soonyoung sighed deeply before turning towards Chan, leaning against the mirror and slumping down to sit on the floor.

“It’s [y/n],” He spoke, “It’s all because of [y/n].”

The mention of her name make Jihoon’s heart flutter and suddenly, he became more interested in what was going on, not just because his girlfriend was the reason, but everything that involves her makes him excited. It’s a natural thing for a guy to become involved with anything that includes his girl, right?

“What did Noona do?” Chan asked as he sat on the floor across from Soonyoung.

“Too much,” Soonyoung stated, “She broke me. Not intentionally, but it happened. I used to be so cheerful and happy and then she completely broke me. It’s all I can think about these days.”

“How so? Did she declare someone else her best friend? I know I would be hurt if something like that happened,” Chan said as he leaned closer to his hyung.

“Not quite,” Soonyoung replied, “It’s a little more heartbreaking than that.”

“Well, you didn’t start acting all moody until-“ Chan cut himself off as his jaw dropped. He clapped his hands loudly on his thighs in realization.

“You like her, don’t you Hyung?” Chan asked, “You’re heartbroken because [y/n] agreed to go out with Jihoon hyung over you.”

Soonyoung was silent. That was all that Jihoon needed to confirm that Soonyoung was in fact in love with [y/n]. He clenched his fists together as he continued to watch with what was going on.

“Hyung,” Chan spoke up, “Are you okay?”

“I don’t know,” Soonyoung said, “I never felt this way about a girl before until I met [y/n]. Ever since the day she first introduced herself to me I’ve been in love with her, but it’s clear that she doesn’t love me back.”

As much as Jihoon hated to admit it, he really wanted to scream back at the broken boy that it was false, [y/n] did love him, just not in the same way she felt about Jihoon. Sometimes he wondered though. Soonyoung always somehow would become the center of [y/n]’s life, even when both Jihoon himself and [y/n] would be out spending the night alone. He was almost afraid that if he tried anything that Soonyoung’s name would come out rather than Jihoon’s. Thinking about Soonyoung being in love with his girlfriend mad him mad. He wasn’t really mad at Soonyoung, but more so of the fact that there was a possibility that Soonyoung could easily take [y/n] away from him. This is when Jihoon decided to intervene. He yanked the door open swiftly and stood in the door way, breathing heavily. Soonyoung and Chan looked up at the young composer with confused eyes.

“…you love her…” Jihoon mumbled.

Both Soonyoung and Chan looked at him in confusion.

“Hyung, what did you say?” Chan asked Jihoon.

Jihoon looked up from the floor and pointed a shaky finger at Soonyoung.

You,” He said as he exhageratied the word, “You love her. You love my girlfriend.”

Soonyoung stood up quickly and looked at Jihoon with his mouth agap.

“You heard…” Soonyoung trailed off, “You weren’t supposed to hear any of that.”

“Well now I have,” Jihoon stated as he gritted through his teeth.

Chan chuckled nervously as he walked up to his younger hyung and grabbed onto his stiff arm.

“Jihoon hyung,” He spoke, “Don’t be mad at Soonyoung hyung. He can’t control his feelings.”

That may have not been the right thing to mention.

“If he can’t control his feelings how can I be sure he won’t make a move on my girl.”

Soonyoung stood quietly as he picked at the hem of his shirt. Again there was complete silence.

“How long?” Jihoon asked after a couple of seconds.

Soonyoung hesitated before replying.

“Since I first met her,” He spoke, “And I still do.”

Jihoon’s blood was boiling. He knew he shouldn’t be mad at Soonyoung, but he just couldn’t help it. The thought of someone else taking his girlfriend away from him angered him. Especially if it was someone as close to [y/n] and good looking like Soonyoung was. There is a high chance that Soonyoung could sweep [y/n] away from him and take her as his own. Jihoon knew that [y/n] wouldn’t be like that and just allow Soonyoung to take her away from her relationship to start a new one, but if Soonyoung has feelings for [y/n], there is a 50/50 chance that [y/n] might too.

“Stay away from her,” Jihoon stated bluntly without thinking, “I don’t want to see you near her. Ever.”

Soonyoung stared back at his friend in shock. He had never seen Jihoon so protective, so angry. He knew Jihoon wouldn’t be happy if he found out that he was in love with [y/n], but he never expected him to banish him seeing his own best friend.

“I can’t! She’s my best friend-“

“And she’s my girlfriend!” Jihoon shouted back.

Both Soonyoung and Chan flinched at the tone Jihoon gave. They had never seen him like this before.

“Just stay away from her. I will get you if I find out, Soonyoung,” Jihoon stated as he walked back out the door, slamming it hard behind him.

“Hyung,” Chan said as he tried to reach out for Soonyoung.

Soonyoung said nothing as he too left the practice room, probably to go spend some time on his own, maybe even cry a little. The only thing was, Soonyoung didn’t feel like crying. His pain was beyond that at this point. How does one respond when you’re told to stay away from your best friend, or in this case, his crush?

Chan stood in the practice room by himself as he tried to process everything that just happened. Seeing both of his Hyungs like that made him scared. Never in all 3 years they had been a band has anyone gotten in a fight like that and it scared him. Seventeen meant so much to each individual member and now that two of them were in a huge argument, what will happen to them now?

 

A couple months had passed since the incident happened between Soonyoung and Jihoon. All the boys and [y/n] had noticed the change of behavior in the two boys. Neither of them talked to each other, they didn’t even look at each other anymore. Jihoon had asked their manager if he could switch rooms so he didn’t have to be with Soonyoung anymore. So Jihoon moved out and Chan moved in to the room in place of while Jihoon got his own room along with [y/n].

[y/n] began to grow worried over both of her boys. Jihoon spent more and more time working than usual and Soonyoung wouldn’t even speak to her. Whenever she would ask Soonyoung to hang out he would always make up an excuse by saying that he was either busy or he just wasn’t feeling well. [y/n] knew her best friend too well to believe any of the lies he was telling her, but she shook it off thinking that maybe it was just a stage he was going through. Jihoon was almost the same way, but he still went out and took her to fancy restaurants to make up for spending so much time on work. [y/n] was beyond confused with their behavior and decided to do something about it. It wasn’t until one day after a long practice that Jihoon decided to get some more work done that she finally got the chance to talk to Soonyoung.

“Soonyoungie!” She called out to her best friend as he tried to escape the practice room.

Soonyoung flinched at his name and ran out of the room without looking back. [y/n] groaned and looked at the boys for help. Chan motioned for her to go after him and that’s just what she did.

“Soonyoung!” She called again as she ran into the hall and followed Soonyoung closely behind.

“Soonyoung I know you can hear me. And don’t even think of outrunning me. You already know I can beat your ass in any race!”

Soonyoung stopped at the entrance of the Pledis building and stiffened up his body. [y/n] jogged up to him and placed a hand on his shoulder. She furrowed her brows and walked around to become face to face with her best friend.

“Soonyoung, why are you so tense all of a sudden?” She asked as she forced his chin up so her eyes could meet his.

“I can’t talk to you,” was all that he said.

[y/n] looked at him confused and cocked her head to the side.

“Why are you acting so weird? I thought we were friends,” She asked.

“Apperantly not anymore,” Soonyoung replied as he tried to get around her, but [y/n] was too quick and gripped onto his wrist to stop him.

“What do you mean? Why can’t we be friends? We’ve always been friends, best friends!”

Soonyoung sighed and bit his lip to suppress any tears or sobs that threatened to escape.

“We just can’t okay?” He stated trying to stay strong, “Just go hang with Jihoon. He’ll appreciate your company over my own.”

“But we never spend time together anymore. I miss you, I miss spending time with you.”

Soonyoung wanted to hug her so badly and apologize for everything, but he just couldn’t. [y/n] somehow managed to sense the brokenness in her best friend and reached out to hug him tightly. Soonyoung gave into her hug and squeezed her back, letting a couple of tears fall down his face. He choked out a sob and gripped onto [y/n]’s shirt tightly. [y/n] didn’t do anything except rubbing Soonyoung’s back comfortingly and whispering, “its okay’s”, into his ear. The two of them stood like that for what felt like hours until a throat clearing interrupted their moment. The two of them broke apart and became face to face with Jihoon who stood there with his arms crossed over his chest, glaring slightly at Soonyoung.

“I came to see if you wanted to get some dinner,” Jihoon said to [y/n], his glare never breaking Soonyoung.

[y/n] noticed this and walked over to her boyfriend. She gripped onto his bicep and looked between the two boys and back at Jihoon.

“What is with you two?” She asked, “You guys haven’t spoken a single work to each other in months! It all started when I sent Jihoon to go talk to you about what was bothering you, Soonyoung. What happened?”

Soonyoung looked at Jihoon. Jihoon didn’t do anything but looked down at the floor and back over to his girlfriend before speaking up.

“We talked, it just didn’t go well.”

[y/n] sighed and tilted back and forth on the balls of her feet before breaking away from Jihoon and stood in between the two boys.

“Someone better tell me what happened,” She stated as she looked at both of them.

Soonyoung stayed slient and rubbed his eyes gently as he sniffled.

“Soonyoung said something,” Jihoon stated, “Something he probably should never have said.”

[y/n] looked at her best friend who was being oddly silent.

“Soonyoung, what did you tell Jihoon?” She asked.

Soonyoung refused to speak. Jihoon sighed and gripped [y/n]’s hand tightly in his own.

“He said he was in love with you. He confessed to Chan about everything he felt towards you. I heard them,” Jihoon spoke.

[y/n] stood in shock as she lifted her head to look at Soonyoung. Soonyoung looked like he wanted to be anywhere but in this position right now. [y/n] let go of Jihoon’s hand and walked over to her best friend. She reached out her hand and placed it on his cheek.

“Is that true?” She asked, “Do you really feel that way about me?”

Soonyoung looked up to meet her gaze and nodded.

“Ever since we first met,” He spoke, “And even on after that. Every chance I got to spend with you made me fall harder and faster in love with you…”

[y/n] couldn’t believe it. Her heart fluttered at her best friend’s confession. She bit her lip and looked over at Jihoon who looked like he was about to murder Soonyoung.

“And both of you decided to keep this from me?” She questioned once more.

“I was afraid,” Soonyoung said quietly.

Jihoon glared at him and shook his head disapprovingly.

“I couldn’t lose you, not to him.”

[y/n] looked at Jihoon with a hint of hurt in her eyes.

“You really think I would just leave you because a guy was in love with me?”

Jihoon opened his mouth to speak, but he knew that no matter what he said could ever make it sound any better than what he meant. It was too late, so he kept is shut.

“I can’t believe you would ever think that! I thought you trusted me?” She spat at him, her body trembling at every word.

“And you,” She said as she turned to Soonyoung, “You could have just confessed to me.”

“It’s not that simple, [y/n],” Soonyoung replied.

“Well if you weren’t too afraid to see the outcome than maybe you would have known that I too was in love with you for like my entire life. I still am, but not as much since I got with Jihoon.”

Soonyoung’s head perked up at her statement. Jihoon walked up to [y/n] and turned her around by the shoulder. He looked at her with hurt in his eyes as a single tear trickled down his cheek.

“You still love him?” Jihoon asked her, “Do you love me more?”

[y/n] didn’t say anything at first. She looked up at Jihoon through glossy eyes.

“I can’t say I do. I don’t know anymore,” She said quietly.

Jihoon sighed and pushed some of her hair out of her eyes and wiped away a tear that fell down her face.

“I don’t want to force you into this if you don’t really want it. If you love Soonyoung…you can have him.”

[y/n] shook her head.

“I don’t know who I want,” She said, “I love you both.”

Soonyoung grabbed her arm.

“You can’t have both of us, [y/n]. You know that,” he said.

Jihoon nodded in agreement.

“We won’t force a decision into your hands, but it’s either me or him. Who do you chose?”
