hello everyone, it’s me, your local piece of trash
i’m screaming bcuz got7 is coming here in january well right near here
bts world tour
24k world tour
i’m working like 74 hours this month for this??
anyway time for my son, namjoon!
again i’m doing american college because i don’t know anything about international colleges and i don’t wanna assume anything about any countries so!!
namjoon is a genius everyone knows this right?
so when he’s in the high school he’s getting lots of colleges asking if he wants to come over on a scholarship
i think if he wasn’t in bts right he would’ve definitely been one to do foreign exchange in high school
my german teacher was trying to get me over there once,,,
namjoon really wants the opportunity to see the world and travel across the globe so he readily agrees to go to international school
if he could he would go to every single continent and live there for a year but the american colleges were offering the most money and without the aid, his parents wouldn’t have been able to send him over
so he’s definitely like well yikes american college it is
what if he went to my dream school,,, american university
it’s a super international, foreign studies based college with lots of overseas students it’s so cool ahh and it’s in the heart of DC like i can see namjoon there so perfectly
he wants a bigger campus where’s he’s in the city so he can actually get out there and explore and do things and not be cooped up in school all the time
even though that’s usually what he’s doing
curled up in the corner of his bed, nose buried in his organic chemistry textbook or maybe a differential equations book or maybe art history
he doesn’t really have a favorite, he loves to gain knowledge no matter what subject it may be
anyway i’m having a lousy ass day like the worst please forgive me if this ends up extra sad for a bit
um looks are hella important bcuz namjoon my son
he has black hair like in the n.o music video like that haircut but not the like mohawk thing like the actual hair he had in the video portion nOT THE DANCE OKAY bcuz that is my all time love and it reminds me of nick, who is a waiter i work with who looks kinda like namjoon in my opinion? with a more narrow face anYWAy
and he has the big, wire rimmed glasses and everyone would usually be like dork but namjoon rocks them so hard that everyone immediately gets heart eyes
he’s a business major and he thinks he should always dress the part so he always wears button downs and like some skinnies (usually black) and he rolls his sleeves up to his elbows and wow have i mentioned i love namjoon
okay anyway anyway
namjoon wants to major in everything ever
i read all these things and everyone is like math major but nah
sure namjoon likes math but he’s like what job do you even do with math (idk maybe there are math jobs)
namjoon is like i need something practical
he still wants to travel the world like here to europe and over to africa and down to south america too like he can’t just settle on something like math
so he goes for international business
with a minor in economics bcuz boy howdy i’m in econ rn and it’s all math it’s literally all math and it’s so hard im screaming
i bet namjoon would love that
anyway that’s what he decides on and he’s already way ahead of the game because he’s bilingual damn he’s my inspiration i wish i could teach myself another language
jeez where am i going with this
namjoon is on the academic team too!!
academic team is traumatic don’t ever join kids take it from me
namjoon is smart though so it’s okay he actually can compete well and doesn’t screen everything up lmao
he’s probably captain of the school academic team tbh
because yes he’s a genius but lao he’s super charismatic and well spoken and he knows how to present himself and the team
all his teammates love him okay so
like he’s the kid who leans back in the chair while everyone is stressing the heck out and buzzes in with like only five words spoken??
and the other people are like sobbing bcuz how does he do that is he even human?
but namjoon is so so so humble he gets all red and shy and flustered whenever someone congratulates him or comments on how great he is at the game
and hides behind his cute lil hands!!
i feel like i made his roommate yoongi so guess what i’m changing it to hoseok bcuz wow i have some quality ideas for this honestly these college ones are pretty fluid so they aren’t all really linked in my mind at least?
he loves hoseok like a brother but hoseok treats him like a baby honestly?
like namjoon has a habit of staying up late to study and just over studying in general and hoseok will set an alarm at one in the morning every day to get up and make sure that namjoon has gone to bed
he makes him all his meals too even if they consist of just taken most of the time
fun fact ramen is an inferior good
namjoon tells hoseok that all the time and hoseok whacks him with a textbook bcuz idgaf namjoon be quiet im not that smart
they have another quality friend named yoongi and the three of them are inseparable
they LOVE going to underground concerts together and eventually namjoon convinces them to try and perform stuff on their own and let me tell you guys
they absolutely blow everyone away
they are the highlight performance of the whole campus, like every week they are asked to come back and perform
sometimes they even get paying gigs
but namjoon has more paying jobs like i can see namjoon volunteering in the library at first but then he’s like i need money yikes so he gets a job tutoring cause he studies all the time right and why not make some money off of it?
but i could also see him working at a local family owned restaurant as a busboy and he always ends up breaking things and tbh he should’ve been fired such a long time ago but he is so sweet and gentle and always apologizes and the owners love him too much to let him leave tbh
jimin works there too yikes fun fact and namjoon and jimin are really close and jimin is the one who actually saves the day because,,,
okay one day namjoon is working his shift right, whatever
you have come into the restaurant!
wow what are the odds?
you and your friends are celebrating a birthday or something like that right
jimin, the waiter, and namjoon, the busboy, are checking out your table from the front desk area because wow y’all are a bunch of cuties and namjoon really has his eyes on you
he pushes his glasses up on his nose to get a better look at you because wow you must be an angel or something
jimin is like yah they’re cute but alas he is already married to someone (mentally lmao) who may or may not be my love
but he’s like man namjoon seems really smitten and i have never seen him make eye contact with someone for more than like two seconds but wow he is staring this is getting serious
so jimin is like wow i gotta like be a wingman (get it bcuz wings ahah) and he’s so ready to go over there and hand namjoon your number or something but then namjoon gets all red and stressed and he begs jimin to calm down before he cries or something
okay okay but he goes to like do the thing that busboys do and he cleans off a table and he carries some plates over to the little cart things but he doesn’t see one of the waitresses rounding the corner way too fast and so he slams her and he drops the plates and they shatter
everyone looks up but nobody pays much mind to it because oh whatever it’s his job to pick it up
but man that is a lot of plates and he doesn’t have a broom wait-
so you hurry over and kneel down beside him and start trying to pick up the shards and your hands brush all cheesy and you both look up at the same time
and you smile and he smiles and you are internally screaming because dimples!! wow look at them they are so perfect and wonderful and amazing!!
he gets all red and his words jumble together and he’s trying to thank you but at the same time tell you that you can go and eat with your friends too!!
and you somehow or another manage to understand and you tell him that it’s totally okay and you just wanna help!
meanwhile jimin is cracking up because you two are so! smitten at first glance and he does not know what do about it except idk,,, set you two up somehow
so when namjoon heads back into the kitchen to deal with the mess, jimin comes up to your table and he drops a napkin in front of you and you kinda !! okay what
but then you unfold it and it has “text this number to make dimple boy’s day xoxo” with like seven million hearts too
that’s like the best part of working at a restaurant, setting your coworkers up with customers
namjoon gets back to his dorm after his shift that night and he checks his phone and an unknown number has sent him “is this the cutie from *insert generic restaurant name here*”
and namjoon gets all red but then his heart falters and he kinda types back “i think you have the wrong number, i can give you the waiter’s number?”
a few moments go by and he gets “i don’t wanna talk to him, i wanna talk to you! you’re the cute one, i thought you would figure that out…”
and namjoon practically screams but he keeps it down because he knows hoseok would never leave him alone if he knew that namjoon was maybe talking to someone oh wowow
when hoseok’s alarm goes off at one that night, he heads up from his bed to check and see if namjoon is sleeping on the desk again but he finds him most definitely awake, huddled over his phone with a cup of coffee beside him
hoseok screams and grabs the phone and before namjoon can stop him, hoseok texts “hello there whoever this is, this is hoseok, namjoon’s super adorable and lovable roommate, he needs to sleep now because he hates himself and signed up for an eight o’clock lecture, but i am sure he will text you tomorrow”
namjoon is absolutely mortified and he coomplains to yoongi about it the next day but yoongi thinks it’s actually really funny and he pats hoseok on the back for his efforts and hoseok gets all smiley
but yes namjoon does text you throughout the next day and you guys find out that you have absolutely no classes together, but most of your classes are at the same times!! which means that you also don’t have class at the same time which means that you two can hang out if you catch my drift
i think namjoon is one of those people who falls helplessly and hopelessly in love without trying like he wears his heart on sleeve when it comes to that kind of thing
so i think he would tell himself that he would keep things platonic and start out as friends but man he sees you and he can’t help but fall for you
like i can just see him as one of those people who will never ever shut up about you to the point where even his professors know who you are but he’s too scared of rejection to actually try and pursue anything romantic so like?
he’s such a sweetheart towards you though like extra sweet
like hell text you on nights that he’s working and be like hey!! do you want food bcuz they gave me some food and i wouldn’t mind sharing with you??
and by wouldn’t mind he means he couldn’t think of anything better tbh
you are into him too but you know that namjoon is so shy and timid sometimes like so you don’t wanna come on too strong and psych him out or something
so you try little subtle things with him
like you’ll be like hey joonie can you come and study with me because chemistry is hard and i’m crying
as soon as you call him joonie he’s weak and cannot say no to you fun fact
but like he’ll come over to your dorm and he’ll sit down with you and you’ll snuggle close and your fingers will brush all cute
and sometimes if you’ll fall asleep he’ll brush the hair from your eyes and he’ll carry you to the couch so you can sleep more comfortably
he’ll try to make you snacks for your study dates too and they’re not very good but you’ll choke them down anyway
and he’ll always take you to the library!!
and he’ll show you his favorite books and he- he just gets so excited like his whole face lights up when he’s holding his favorite book and he gets so excited and he’ll hug it to his chest
and he’s just so cute and even if you don’t like reading that much you read everything so you’ll have more to talk about with him
and he’ll make sure to find some quality quotes for you!! that you can use to be instagram captions or something!!
and he always tells you which character in the story he reminds you of and which one he reminds himself of
they always seem to be romantically involved,,, idk what that could be about,,,
you always show up to namjoon’s academics team competitions
and not many people watch so you say you’ll read questions or score and after a while his teammates are like aren’t you a little biased wink wink
and you and namjoon get all embarrassed and adamantly deny anything like that is going on
because it’s not
most definitely not
that explains why namjoon always has yoongi and hoseok and their other friend seokjin gathered in the library like every single day to talk about the dilemma of him most definitely not being in love with you
hoseok and seokjin are telling him he should confess already as yoongi is like nah let them do it, it’s safer that way and namjoon has no idea what to do like none whatsoever
and seokjin is all “now namjoon you know it doesn’t have to be anything big and extravagant!” all mom like
and hoseok scoffs and literally pushes seokjin out of his chair “please namjoon you only have one chance you can’t just say you’re in love that’s so LAME”
and yoongi is like “yikes”
hoseok is really like,,, too involved tbh,,,
“namjoon, what’s gonna happen when you guys have like ten kids? you’re gonna tell them that you just ASKED the love of your life out like it was the most casual thing on earth? what kind of role model would that be?!”
as the other three are just kinda giving one another looks because okay hoseok, okay
namjoon says it’s not a big deal but then hoseok’s words start to sink in and he’s like yah this won’t fly i need to make things special
he’s so consumed with it that even the babies of the friend group figure out what’s up
tae suggests that he confesses using the pick up line “i might break everything i touch, but i promise i won’t break your heart”
and jeongguk is like yikes pun train i gotta so jeongguk comes up with “hey babe are you an insulin pen because my love for you is inelastic”
namjoon just about throws up at that one tbh
jimin is like well buddy try thIS “hey babe, there’s no opportunity cost to being mine”
between the three of them, namjoon doesn’t know who’s the worst
ooh i gotta an idea
get ready for some gushy cliches
time passes and namjoon still will not confess for the life of him
even though anyone who saw you two for like three seconds would think you’re madly in love
they would correctly assume that you’re madly in love
like you low key always end up with his clothes? like where did that scarf come from oh it’s namjoons? and that overcoat? wow doesn’t namjoon have the same one?
your roommate hates your guts bcuz every time they come to the dorm namjoon is there and they feel like a third wheel bcuz you two are snuggled up together, illegally streaming movies online
his boss always addresses you as namjoon’s sweetheart whenever you come to the restaurant and she’s too old and sweet for you to correct her
okay but like one time
hoseok and yoongi invite you to an underground event bcuz they want you to witness a different side of namjoon
and you’re blown away because is this actually namjoon? is that him on stage?
he seems so confident and different?
like he’s cursing and slamming people who’ve screwed him over and he’s so expressive but he keeps this poised kind of confidence where’s not all passion but he gets his point across in such a powerful way that makes you feel like a moron for ever not believing him or crossing him or whatever it may be
and as soon as he gets off stage his arm is around your shoulder bcuz he knows how people get at these kind of events and he will not let anyone come and try to steal you away
and he’s kinda feeding off the energy from the night and he’s just really touchy and charming and it’s not blushing shy namjoon but smirking, almost cocky namjoon and you don’t actually really mind…
but really, you two are just so comfortable with each other and you don’t even think much about like labels?
but there’s still this tense kind of air because without the labels what are you guys? are you friends? best friends? are you something more than that?
*ravi voice* nobody knows
and you’re like maybe i should say something?? but you also know namjoon is so shy like what if he had a heart attack or something like that can’t be on your hands
and tbh you’ve always wanted someone to confess to you,,,
namjoon is like i got time it’s okay slow and steady wins the race
but then his business professor is like oh next semester you have the chance to study abroad!! idk how it works but you get the point
and namjoon is like heart eyes!! bcuz this is what he’s been dreaming of his entire life
like so many countries are a viable to go but he picks germany because let’s face it they have one of the most productive economies right now, which is totally appealing to an economics major, they’re big on international affairs, the land is so so so beautiful, a lot of people speak english over there so he could understand, and the history is fascinating
plus a million more reasons but!
like why would you not go to germany??
so namjoon is so dead set on going to germany right and he’s so excited and wow you don’t wanna ruin the moment by confessing
like what if he doesn’t like you back? like that would totally screw him over when it comes to like,,, the entire trip
even though your heart is aching because that’s an entire semester without namjoon!! like whatever are you going to do??
but it’s really hard to bottle up feelings, and it’s not good for you, because you kinda internalize everything until it spills over
like you’re so consumed with your love for him that it actually hurts??
and namjoon feels the same way like it pains him to see you and not know how you really feel but he’s so scared to confess??
like you two still hang out all the time but things seem much different now
like you’re not as touchy and things seem off
and both of you immediately jump too omg they don’t like me!!
meanwhile seokjin and yoongi and hoseok are screaming because you two are so oblivious?
like obviously you’re very much in love and just wanna kiss each other but noooo
like i can imagine namjoon writing sooo many songs about his feelings towards you and performing them at those underground concert events and for once he’s not super composed, he’s more unrestrained and finally shows all sides of himself and how he’s feeling and not just the parts he wants people to see
and but imagine namjoon, quiet, shy namjoon
who gets up there and spills his feelings and he talks about feeling inadequate, like people only ever thought of him for his brains
not his looks, or his other talents, or his personality
like he wasn’t anything special, or important
but then he met you, who treated him like an actual human, that made namjoon feel like he deserved the world and so much more, that made namjoon feel worth it
and everyone is kinda shocked because they knew namjoon liked you
but namjoon doesn’t really share how he’s feeling, he’s one of those people who will tell you something so you think you know what’s going on in his life, but he doesn’t tell you the entire story and his actual feelings
like he could say he’s upset about a bad academic team tournament but he fails to tell you he’s stressed himself out so bad he’s about to throw up
because namjoon is definitely someone who carries a lot of weight on his shoulders and tears himself apart for everything
but you would never know that, because he doesn’t tell anyone how he’s ever really feeling
but with you! oh with you he felt like he could step over those boundaries, and he could actually trust you with his real, raw emotions
yet he couldn’t seem to overcome that insecurity
hearing this breaks hoseok’s heart especially because namjoon deserves so much, especially happiness, and he’s not letting you slip away from his best friend
and you find yourself seeing namjoon less and less and less
and god it hurts
you go to the restaurant to check if he’s there but the other employees say that he’s taken off to study
you ask hobi what’s up and he tells you namjoon studies, goes to class, and sleeps, and it’s nothing personal
when you text him you get really short replies and your heart is breaking because you had your chance and now things are falling apart
and you know what happens after midterms right?
i think it’s a new semester
which means that namjoon is going to germany
which means namjoon is leaving as just your friend
and oh that is not going to happen
like i can imagine you getting nervous and you’re like you know what i’m gonna do it, it’s gonna happen
and you run into namjoon one day and the words are on the tip of your tongue and you’re like namjoon!
and he kinda freezes because he hasn’t been talking to you much because he doesn’t know how to deal with overwhelming feelings that he can’t keep down anymore
and you two are staring at each other and you’re stammering
“i uh…” you freeze “i’m gonna miss you…”
and he just nods “i’m gonna miss you too”
and you two run off because the air is suffocating
later namjoon goes to yoongi to rant
you got to hoseok and seokjin to cry
namjoon leaves in a few days and you don’t want him to leave with your relationship like this
and they’re trying to calm you down because they can’t bare to see you so upset
and suddenly hoseok gets an idea…
flash forward a few days
yoongi is driving namjoon to the airport
y'all know where this is going right?
and namjoon is so super excited but also feeling a little guilty that he dropped you without really explaining himself
he tries not to stress himself out though because !! trip !!
he goes through security, and so does yoongi,,,
“gotta make sure you get on the plane pal”
namjoon is like okay suspicious but he doesn’t question it much because he’s too nervous to think hard on it
little does he know that seokjin and hoseok are bringing you along to say goodbye as well
i can see namjoon as the one who gets there late, as the plane is about to board
he definitely doesn’t leave himself enough time
so when you get there, they’re about to board
you see namjoon standing in line and you’re like oh my god he’s actually gonna leave oh my god
so you start running and hoseok and seokjin chase after you
you call out to namjoon and he looks up from his phone and he just stares at you, eyes wide
the entire group of passengers stops what they’re doing to stare because you’re standing there, breathing heavy
and namjoon looks like he might pass out
he can’t even breathe let alone think and move
the person standing behind him gives him a little nudge and namjoon runs over to you
and he pulls you into his arms
“i said i was gonna miss you, didn’t i?” you breathe as you bury your face in the crook of his neck
and he’s holding you in his arms and people are cooing and cheering
hoseok goes over to the kiosk and he presses the microphone button and he’s like “okay if you guys could now kiss that would be great”
and namjoon tilts your chin up and he stammers something and you just roll your eyes and kiss him
and that’s when the cheering really starts and people are whooping and whistling and namjoon pulls you closer and kisses you harder
when you two finally pull away, you both can’t even speak?? you just stare at each other dumbly bcuz was it really that easy??
he leans down and kisses you again
he’s being whisked away and you’re waving and he’s beaming!!
while in germany he video messages you every day and too often those video calls happen after he’s just gotten out of the shower and his hair is still wet and he’s just wearing a towel,,,
he takes so many pictures and they’re a little blurry but they’re so cute!!
he takes so many selfies with the cute scenery and all the landmarks
he buys you so much too like he gets a little trinket from every single city he visits so you can have cute stuff
when he comes back man oh man
expect like kisses for days
i think after the confession he would be over the initial fear and he would be so much more comfortable
so like kisses for years
he would be so into pda like even your professors know you guys are a thing
everyone knows you’re a thing tbh with you
like namjoon is such a romantic when it comes down to it, he loves the romance from literature
so he always brings roses to your dorm, red roses
and he loves holding your hand always
he walks you to all your classes
you two always joke about how dumb you both were for not confessing
you two would be the super cute couple that goes to all the games together and share his jacket and trashy stadium food
when he gives his valedictorian speech he mentions you and thanks you for always being by his side and it’s so super cheesy and wonderful
practically the most perfect couple on the face of the planet…
