defense, you were really trying to pay attention. You really want to learn
everything about Isaac Newton and the three laws of motion. Well, not everything,
just… enough to pass the test tomorrow. You’re really trying, but the crumbled
paper balls falling in your desk in the studying room aren’t letting you focus.
You didn’t unwrinkle
any of them, if the sender notices you’re not having it, they’ll stop. Or that’s
what you thought before the sixth or seventh little ball fell in your book.
What the hell?
over your shoulder, there’s only one person sitting diagonally from your desk,
but you can’t see who it is, because they are hiding their faces with a book.
Well, trying, a few strands of hair at the top of their heads aren’t being covered.
Red strands of hair.
or Saeyoung? Even though Saeran was becoming way less unbearable in the last
few days - and it was about him, you’re pretty sure it has nothing to do with
you trying to be more patient since he basically prevented a rape from
happening with you – you two aren’t that close to the point of him trying to
get your attention like this. Well, you’re not that close to Saeyoung either,
you just forgot he doesn’t know that.
But it is Saeyoung,
of course it’s him. And knowing the little you know about him, you better read
one of these little balls or he won’t stop being a third wheel between you and
“Watchu reading?” or…
something like this, his handwriting can be a little hard to decode sometimes.
“Isaac Newton and the laws of motion.” You throw one of the balls behind
you , nobody notices. Because, can you imagine, some people use the studying
room to study.
“Spoiler alert: he dies in the end. Would there
be more laws of motion if he hasn’t died? It’s open to interpretation.” You muffle a giggle and look at
him, still using the book as a disguise.
“I know it’s u behind me and u r not really
reading ‘Basic Principles of Genetics’”
“How dare u accusing me so unfairly? :O” did he really draw an emoji? Oh God…
“The book is upside down, Saeyoung.”
over your shoulder to see him turning the book to the right position and
adjusting himself in his seat. Rolling your eyes lightly, you muffle another
“See? I’m learning EVERYTHING about Mendel and
peas. In your face, MC!”
“Good, so go back to studying the peas and I’ll
go back to Newton.”
looking behind you, you know it would just encourage him on keep exchanging
notes. And though it’s fun, you really need to study right now!
And he apparently
gets it, as the balls stop flying. You’re relieved! And… bored. Seriously, so
bored… your eyelids are almost getting heavy. Where’s Saeyoung and the paper
balls attack to keep you awake?
“Ok, tell me more about the peas.”
You see him smirking when your paper plane lands on his desk.
“I know shit about the peas. Can I kidnap u in
“Such an improvement from when u used to kidnap
me without asking me first.” Now he is the one holding his laugh, but he’s less discreet and some
other students glare at him.
“I’ll be waiting for u next to the exit.” He lets the last note when passing
next to your desk before leaving the room.
apologize for ditching Isaac Newton. See, it’s not you, it’s him. It’s just not
working and you think you should see other people. Saeyoung, in that case. He
might be a handful sometimes, but he’s definitely not boring.
you wouldn’t come.”
shouldn’t, to be honest. But this book is almost making me sleep. Especially
now that you told me the end.” You stick your tongue out and he laughs softly. “So,
where are we going, mr. kidnapper?”
of kidnapper would I be if I told you that? It’s a secret! Come on!”
take the bus. And you were worried about not having much to talk to him, but
Saeyoung lets almost no blanks. He always has something to say about some place
you’re passing by. And that is pretty comforting, actually.
mine, indeed.” Yes, your uncle’s record store is just a few streets ahead. You
noticed between all his blabbering that the way was being very familiar.
You live nearby?”
“No, I work
“How come I
never saw you before if we take the same bus?”
you usually sit right there with your headphones and a resting bitch face that
make people think you don’t want them sitting beside you.” Well, you really do
use your phones and the… resting bitch face in order not to be bothered,
especially by boys. But Saeyoung is a boy and he never bothered you. How long
have you two been taking the same bus? How long has he been observing you? “And
here we are.”
He stops in
front of a store. A little bigger than the record store you work, the glass
window and the light tones of yellow and white in the front gives even more
depth illusion, but it’s an old building, for sure. And judging from the movie
posters in the window, it looks old on purpose. It’s a video rental store.
about this place before, actually. You passed by in your way to the record
store and couldn’t help but thinking there is another shop lost in time very
close to yours. You would imagine if the people who worked here were aware that
the owner looks for nostalgia rather than profit, or would they really hope having
a lot of customers.
the only one in the band dealing with obsolete medias, MC.” Ah, so Saeyoung
knows, just like you. “Come in.”
closed. Won’t your boss get mad?”
He gave me those keys so I can come whenever I want. He doesn’t want to lose
his only employee, after all.”
do you do here?”
all these movies! What do you think I do?” you look around, yes, there are a
lot of movies… how many of them did he watch? “I mean, I watch them, but there
is another thing, come with me.”
you to the back of the store, where the poster of a semi-naked lady is doing
the shush gesture in a sexy way, and the warning “Do not enter if you’re under
18 years old.
sign, not a cop. Come in.” he grabs your hand and brings you inside.
around and most of the movies are piled in the corner. Oh, thank God, you were
so sure it was going to be walls stuffed by VHSs and DVDs covers of women being
filled in holes you’re not sure they should be filled… instead, there is a pair
of DJ pickups, a sewing machine, two mannequins, and records. Lots of records.
some of them?”
them at my uncle’s store?”
them I bought online. I must say the hip-hop’s selection at your uncle’s store
is not that vast. I even wrote a note and put it in the suggestions box you
neverreads it, sorry. So… you’ve been there before I joined the band?”
He smiles while turning on his equipment. “I
was looking for Tupak and you told me there wasn’t much hip-hop, but I could
look it up.”
asked me for help, but I didn’t know where the hip-hop albums were, because… it
was my first day.” He nods, putting his headphones. “Why didn’t you tell me
that close.” Oh, so he knows that. “And I don’t want you to think I’m a yandere
stalker or something like this.”
room is very yandere-ish. The mannequins, the pink light, I mean… I think the
phantom of the opera would have something like this if he lived in the90s.” he
what’s funnier than your joke? Saeran said exactly the same thing.”
two have a very similar sense of humor. Too bad you don’t really like each other,
you would have fun together.”
“I… I don’t
really hate your brother, Saeyoung.”
and he probably doesn’t hate you either. He’s just… he doesn’t know how to
express his feelings too well, I… think he meant something completely different
when you told us that Rika wanted to kiss you.” And you know that by now. You
could tell him you do, but… you don’t really want to remember that night…
you put it like that, it makes me feel really ridiculous for even considering
ridiculous. Maybe you and Rika has that… hot rivalry tension like Crystal
Connors and Nomi Malone in Showgirls, you know?”
believe you’re saying something in my life resembles such an awful movie,
a great movie! Great quotes, great dancing moves, great, uhm… breasts.”
you liked the boobs.” Even under the pink light, you can see him blushing. “But
it has a pretty cool sex in the pool scene… I guess.”
15! You can’t watch things like that, young lady!” and you know he’s teasing,
since he basically dragged you to the porn section of the store.
to my uncle. I swear he has no idea how to deal with a teenage girl.”
one like you, I suppose.”
that suppose to mean?”
you’re very… well, you’re very unique, MC. You know a lot about culture from
past decades, and… you’re a salty little smug, and… stupid people can’t really
hold a conversation with you for too long.”
you could easily be describing yourself right now too, right?” another blush
under the pink light, from both of you now. “So, uhm… the pickups, huh? So
vintage, do you remix?”
“I try, but
it isn’t as easy as doing in the computer. Here, listen to this.” He hands you
one of his headphones, and you immediately shake your head according to the rhythm.
My stuff in the laptop are better, to be honest.” He grabs his laptop in his
backpack and sits on the floor, you lean your hands on your kness and bend down
when he connets the headphones in the laptop. “See? I asked Yoosung to play the
piano for me and I basically recreated the base in No Diggity by Blackstreet.”
waves here are you singing?”
me trying to… rap, actually.”
“Oh my God!
Let me hear this!” you press the play before he can protest.
“It’s going down fade
to Blackstreet. The homeys got abby collab creations, funk like acne. No doubt I put it down never slouch, as long as my
credit could vouch, a dog couldn’t catch me straight out. Tell me
who could stop with Dre makin’ moves. Attracting honeys like a magnet.
Giving them ig-asms with my mellow accent. Still moving his flavor with the
homeys Blackstreet & Teddy: the original rump shakers”
could laugh and make fun of him, but all you do is:
“Shorty get down, good Lord. Baby got ‘em open
all over town. Strickly biz she don’t play around, cover much grounds. Got game
by the pound, gettin paid is her forte. Each and every day true player way”
you in singing: “I can’t get her outta my
mind.I think about the girl all the time”
And he moves to the second part of the song: “She’s got class and style. Street
knowledge, by the pound. Baby never act wild, very low key on the profile.
Catching villians is a no, let me tell you how it goes. Curve’s
the word, spin’s the verb. Lovers it curves so freak what you heard.”He’s…
he’s looking straight at you, like… he’s singing to you, like he means it.
Who knew he actually knows how to sing? You
remember Saeran teasing him for not playing any instrument, but the thing is he
doesn’t even need it. Look at what he has here, he sews the outfits for the
band, reproduces beats for famous songs in modern and traditional equipment, he…
knew you almost since your first day in this town. And yes, you weren’t close,
and that’s a shame.
“So, uhm… pretty lame, huh?” he asks, taking you
“Well, I don’t know if it is ‘ig-asms’ material…
yet.” He laughs, and you chuckle from his laugh.
It’s just in that moment you realize how close
you are, you can almost fell his breathing against your nose, his… exhilarating
breathing, actually. Your eyes lock with his, and you’re so glad those guys
couldn’t do anything to you at that party, because, if they did… this wouldn’t
be your first kiss…
And it isn’t, because Saeyoung lowers his head
and looks back at the computer.
“Don’t let yourself be carried by where we are,
“You’re sorry, I know.” Oh… not really what you
were going to say. “Don’t worry. I… I won’t tell anybody about this.”
“It’s fine, MC, really. Oh, it’s late, I… should
walk you home, you have a physics test tomorrow, right?” what is he doing? Why
isn’t even looking at you?
Of course he’s embarrassed, you would be too if
someone tried to kiss you and you didn’t really want to, but… if he says it’s
fine, why doesn’t he even act like it’s fine? Again, why doesn’t he even look
at you? Like you’re not worthy of it?
“I can go home by myself.”
“Are you sure? It’s getting dark and…”
“I can take the bus, I’ve done this before a lot
of times, you know?” he does.
“MC, you don’t…”
“Goodbye, Saeyoung.” You gather your stuff on the
floor and walk out of there.
What happened? You could swear he wanted this to
happen as much as you did, it’s like… it’s almost like… he was waiting for you
to make a move just so he could push you away, why?
You were so close to him, but, then again… you
and him weren’t really close.And he knows that.
Here it is, guys! I reached 200 followersway sooner than I expected, so here we go! This is my first challenge and I’m super excited about it. As you’ve already seen in the title, this is a 90′s Baby Song-fic Challenge. No, you don’t have to be a 90′s Baby to participate!
I’m a 90′s Baby, though and basically, I’m a firm believer that 90′s Music is some of the best music out there! There were so many genres getting a lot of attention at that time and I’ve always been a sucker for it.
So, without further ado, here we go!
Below the cut, there is a list of rules and 90′s songs (thanks @impalaimagining for the help!) from all different genres. If you choose a song, send me an ASK and let me know what song you’re choosing (and a second song choice, just in case yours is taken) and who you will be writing about.
As I’m turning 21 this July [!!] I thought I’d host my very first song challenge to celebrate.
I’ve picked out 40 songs. 20 from the 90′s and 20 from the 00′s.
This challenge is open to everyone. Whatever floats your boat, you can write/make/edit it for this.
NOTES TO FIC WRITERS- Reader inserts/OC’s/pairings/AU’s/RPF are all fine! NSFW/SFW/Angst/Fluff/Smut is all a-okay too. There’s no min or max word limit, write whatever inspires you! But if it’s longer than 500 words, pretty please add the keep reading link.
Please send me an ASK with your chosen song that you want to use as inspiration.
Tag my sideblog; @becs-bunkerin your entries with #b21stchallenge in the first 5 tags.
Entries due by the 23rd July [my bday!]
If you need an extension/need to drop out for reasons, please let me know. It’s totally okay and I’ll still love you, promise! <3
