Arsenal’s players celebrates after scoring their fourth goal during the UEFA Champions league Group A football match between FC Basel 1893 and Arsenal FC on December 6, 2016 at the St Jakob Park stadium in Basel.
this may sound random but I'm just really curious... RFA finding out MC used to be in a gang
(my friend buddy pal you have NO idea like omg this is my FAVOURITE SCENARIO EVER literally I COULD WRITE A 10K fanfic about this bc I love Gang!MC So. MUCH!)
MC never really considered telling him
sure, it was part of what MC had been in the past-
Yoosung is just, so pure and nice
maybe he’d feel put off by that?
it just seems like he has this image of MC
where he sees them as an innocent and precious being who came from the heavens to help
and something tells MC that being part of a gang isn’t something he’d ever phantom
they know that if Seven didn’t reveal it when he had the chance, it means they’re being given a chance but still
eventually, as their life advances, MC just forgets they never told Yoosung?
they’d been having such a normal relationship they just forgot?
and they probably wouldn’t have ever told him
until one day, MC and Yoosung are at the mall
there’s a creepy person trailing behind them, and MC suggests they leave
the creep follows them out the mall and MC acts on reflex when they see the creep’s hand reaching for Yoosung’s shoulder
Yoosung is in shock
MC just aprehended this person and is holding- a knife? MC flipped the creep over and is holding a knife to their throat?
MC had just followed their instincts and did to the man what they’d do back then when someone from a rival gang tried to attack
suddenly MC realizes they’re doing this in front of Yoosung
let go of the man, throw the knife elsewhere, take Yoosung’s hand and run
“Woah… Where did that come from, MC?”
MC bites their lip, but hey, what’s even the point of hiding it anymore?
“… Well, I was in a gang when I was younger. It was, er, just something I remembered from back then.”
Yoosung is… Well, he’s shocked
“Are you still there?”
“No, I left when I joined the RFA. Figured we had enough of a dangerous person with 707.”
MC is not in danger, so he’s really not angry or anything
Mostly surprised, and as long as MC promises to stay out of dangerous stuff like that, he’s seriously not worried
MC could see Jaehee not trusting them in the first days
I mean, she had her reasons not to, but it still felt a bit fishy to MC
for all Jaehee knew they were a normal person right??
but then MC realizes
that’s exactly why Jaehee doesn’t trust them
because they could be anyone
So, MC decides to just drop their personal information (besides, that hacker dude probably already has their info, no?)
When Jaehee connects, MC just drops a huge list
Full name, birth date, birth place, gender, family, education, past jobs, hobbies, height, etc.
Just thing after thing
“MC? Why are you telling me this?”
But MC is not done
“also to top it off I was in a gang. Not in it anymore, so please don’t worry. I’m not doing anything that could damage the RFA now”
Jaehee just assumes gang as in, y’know, some teens drinking liquor behind 7/11 and driving underage, egging houses and stuff
“… I’ll add all this to your file. Thank you, I suppose?”
from there on though, Jaehee does seem to trust MC more- I mean all the lowkey flirting in the chatroom probably happens due to MC’s blatant honesty the first day
In the party, Jaehee mentions how surprised they were to see MC was in a gang
“You didn’t seem like that kind of teenager to me, to join a gang and all. It’s amazing how time can change a person, right MC?.”
“Actually, I was in that gang up until I joined the RFA, and then I left.”
Jaehee realizes that was no small fry gang when MC explains a bit more
“Yeah… I guess it wasn’t the healthiest group, and all. I- I didn’t do anything too illegal, and my criminal record is clean though. I didn’t get caught doing anything and now I never will, so don’t worry Jaehee.”
she worries for like, half a week and then calms down because if MC smuggled weapons and now invites people to parties maybe they’re safe now
did someone mention Zen was in a motorcycle gang??
MC reads that and they’re pleasantly surprised
“ahaha wow same I used to be in a gang too!”
Zen also finds this amusing and starts telling his experiences in the gang
“Yeah the only parts that sucked was when your leader was mid-deal with another gang and you were guarding, and the police showed up so you had to run from them making sure they didn’t shoot ur boss ;;”
Zen is. Sure this is not what they did at his old gang
running away from police??
sure but they did that to avoid being given tickets for speeding and stuff
“what do you mean avoiding your boss being shot?!”
MC realizes hey maybe your gang was nearly a mafia and not everybody has that kinda experience
“oooooh wait nvm forget that”
Zen never really forgets
but MC never brings it up again so???
he’s just a bit scared MC would get into shady businesses again
luckily, MC can tell he’s worried when they meet him
“If I did that, I’d make you look bad no? I don’t want to harm you, Zen. I’m out of that, mkay?”
reassuring words work miracles for him
so now when he’s telling his old gang stories MC always one-ups them with their actually dangerous real deal gang stories
being in a gang was… Well, not something MC was ashamed of
it did shape them a bit as a person
but also not something MC wanted to bring out about themselves
and since nobody ever asked they never said anything
still, after the party and once they’re in a secure relationship with Jumin, they’re still on that “ask no questions receive no answers” mindset
on a miscellaneous day MC is walking down the streets with Jumin- probably after MC insisted on walking around after a long day
suddenly, out of an alley a suspicious looking individual comes towards MC
it’s a woman, dressed in short ripped shorts, wearing a fishnet shirt with a black bandeau underneath, a handkerchief covering her mouth, many strange tattoos, and a knife in her belt
Jumin’s bodyguards start getting ready to act up
Jumin slowly wraps his arm around MC in case the woman tries to do anything funny
but MC just slips out of his grasp
and walks towards the woman with a large smile??
“Boss! It’s been a long time!”
the woman smiles and bumps fists with MC
“MC! Darn, how have ya been? I was scared somethin’ had caught ya, dropping out so suddenly!”
Jumin is, with good reason, confused
MC talks a bit with this boss woman, asking things like “how was everything running without them”, “if any new members had joined”, and “if the police had stopped trying to track down the hideout”
eventually they say goodbye and MC returns to Jumin’s side
“MC… Who was that…?”
“Oh, the boss of a gang I used to be in.”
back at home, Jumin tries to ask more
MC replies truthfully to his questions because what’s the point in hiding it??
Jumin is a bit surprised MC would ever join such dangerous people
also, he increases the amount of bodyguards for MC because what if an old rival gang attacked them??
he knew it was a bit more intrusive than he should be, but he needed to make a background check on MC
he enters their old chatting app acount and find some rather interesting chat logs
messages such as
“can’t hang out today, the boss has a deal w another gang and I have to help out”
“can you believe I get to teach newbies how to shoot this is amazing maybe I’ll be the next boss!”
“be careful, the police are searching for our hideout and they’ve been lurking near. wear something that covers ur face and don’t bring guns today because if they catch you with those u r in trouble”
clearly not just, normal standard texting with friends
he can figure out pretty easily what they mean
he decides to bring it up on a call out of sheer curiosity
“MC, what did you do before the RFA?”
“I used to be in a little gang thing back then, also a couple odd jobs…”
he insists on knowing the gang name
and when MC tells him, he quickly makes his research
bam DRUGS GUNS MURDER ALCOHOL ROBBERIES
ok maybe not that bad but the gang is not rainbows and sunshine
he’s actually worried MC left the gang and now they hold grudges to them?
leaving organised crime organisations is never easy
still, MC insists it was just a small little side thing
Seven knows it was much more than that but he can tell MC doesn’t want to creep the others out
when he comes over to Rika’s apartment to fix the whole fiasco with the hacker thing, he actually scares MC
they didn’t expect him to get there so fast
he’s shocked bc when MC senses danger their hands move on their own
where a gun holster would usually be
MC admits that they’d been pretty used to having their gun handy-dandy
also when he starts with all that “stay away from me I’m dangerous” MC is like
“listen up if it weren’t for the gang’s shady contacts I can assure my criminal record would be the worst and I’d probably be in jail so don’t even try to tell me that”
eventually he’s like… chill?
like it’s in the past sure ok maybe MC was in a gang but he’s a dangerous hacker so who is he to speak
