Koi No Yokan

Characters - Steve x Sharon (stick with me here), Reader, Clint

Words - 636

Warnings - Angst

Koi No Yokan (Japanese) - The sense upon first meeting a person that the two of you are going to fall in love. This is different than “love at first sight,” since it implies that you might have a sense of imminent love, somewhere down the road, without yet feeling it. The term captures the intimation of inevitable love in the future, rather than the instant attraction implied by love at first sight.

A/N - Yay, new drab series! I’m just setting the scene in the first couple parts so please hang with me. Feedback is what I crave so go for it :)

“Baxter!” Your hoarse voice tore through the neighborhood just a few blocks from your own. There were tears clouding your vision and you couldn’t stop your nose from running as you wailed through the streets like a mad woman. “Baxter!”

Steve was sitting at the kitchen table. Lacing his fingers together, he rested his chin down on the bridge. He sighed, eyes locked on the screen of his laptop as he tried to find the right words.

He wrote a sentence that he erased a few seconds later and with another defeated sigh, he decided he needed a break. Feet planted on the floor, he pushed away from the table. The legs of his chair scraped against the wooden floor as he stood up and returned to the open-plan kitchen to fill his mug with coffee.

He took the coffee pot, his eyes cast down, carefully avoiding looking at Bucky’s half empty room at the other end of the flat. Bucky Barnes, his best friend since childhood, was now living with his college sweetheart, Dot. Steve took a quick sip of the steaming liquid before he sat in front of his laptop. It took him a while but he finally came up with something he liked.

shrweek: a poem

“There’s a Japanese phrase that I like: koi no yokan. It doesn’t mean love at first sight. It’s closer to love at second sight. It’s the feeling when you meet someone that you’re going to fall in love with them. Maybe you don’t love them right away, but it’s inevitable that you will.”

― Nicola Yoon, The Sun Is Also a Star

Japoncada bir sözcük varmış: “Koi No Yokan”. İki kişinin henüz buluşup tanışmadan önce aşık olacağını hissetmesi demekmiş. “Aşkın önsezisi”, bir başka deyişle.

  • like virgo this album goes through mental tranquility in regards to love at first sight teeming in romantic sensuousness and melancholia. it personifies how virgos attach themselves so deeply to the ones they love, heir appearances, their personalities, their smells. love is the most human of all of our feelings; intoxicating when encountered and longed for it when without. virgos are one of the signs that understand and know how to express this the most.

In present day, you are one of the many people inoculated with a suppressor meant to ease your pressure to find The One by ridding you of your soulmate visions. Will fate still find a way to bring you together?

Warnings: Language, little bit of angst and pining, but it’ll be okay, I promise. Super mega sappy fluff

A/N: This is my piece for @howlingbarnes Languages of Love birthday challenge based on the prompt “Koi No Yokan: The instantaneous feeing of meeting someone and knowing that the two of you are destined to fall in love. Not love at first sight, just knowing that you will one day fall in love with them.” The destiny bit really got me going. I’ve always wanted to try my hand at a soulmate AU.

Ever since Steve could remember he had always been able to see your face the moment he closed his eyes. It was what got him out of bed on his worst days: knowing that he hadn’t met you yet, that today could be the day. And it never bothered him that as he got older, more and more of the people his age found their soulmates, finally picked that face out of the crowd that had been etched so deeply into their minds, into their very beings, since day one. No, he wasn’t worried. He would find you when the time was right.

Steve’s main conflict came in the form of his artistic inclinations. He wanted so badly to draw you, paint you, have some real physical evidence of your existence, but he couldn’t. It was considered bad luck to try to capture you soulmate’s image on paper before you met them. Some even went so far as to claim that doing so nullified the forces that eventually brought all soulmates together, that to have a physical representation of your soulmate was to, in effect, replace the first meeting. Steve didn’t intend to take any chances.

Bucky teased him about it, saying it was a silly superstition that only old women and children believed in, but when Steve would respond with an offer to draw Bucky’s soulmate for him, he would only raise his hands in surrender with a playful smirk. And so, Steve settled for daydreaming, living for the day he would finally find you, meet you, fall in love with you.
