R | Taehyung/Yoongi | One-Shot: 26.7k | Notes: AU, platonic soulmates, family member deaths, philosophy, horror, mild language

Taehyung meets the Devil one summer’s day and finds a strange friendship blooming between the two of them. Yoongi likes to visit his garden and drink his iced tea over deep conversations about life and death. Taehyung doesn’t know if the Devil wants something from him, but he knows that he wants something from him.

He wants a friend.

Review: This is so beautiful. One could say the fic is quite uneventful but it’s so nice either way - the way Taehyung’s and Yoongi’s relationship develops. Taehyung’s story, Yoongi’s support, their building a sort of routine. Despite the tags and notes, this isn’t disturbing or triggering in my opinion, but the writer chose to rate it ‘mature’ due to some things mentioned in conversations. Overall, it’s a smooth ride, so peaceful, and my type of fic ~ Admin P

Note: this is part 1 of the Keepsake series, a series of standalone long one shots

Have you even been platonically in love with someone? Like, you wouldn’t necessarily date them or kiss them or anything like that, but you just love talking to them and their presence just relaxes you and makes you feel safe and your whole world gets a little bit brighter whenever they’re around? Because those are honestly my favorite kinds of relationships.
