GREED || MAFIA!Jeonghan [Chp 2]

BLURB: Power makes most men weak but you’re his special brand of kryptonite.

GENRE: mafia!au, action, mystery, romance

WORDS: 2125

PART: 1 | 2 |


Summers had always been his favourite time. For one, Jeonghan was entirely free from his studies for at least a few months. No tutors nagging at him for his terrible writing or smacking him with a ruler for dozing off during a lesson (as if it was his fault that Faery History was so boring) or music teachers with their snooty accents commanding him to “start again”. The days stretched on and there was always some sort of festival every other weekend, filling the city square with music and laughter. Jeonghan was never allowed to go but the sounds carried and he would run to the outer castle walls, squeezing himself against the gates as much as the guards let him, watching as the parade marched pass.

Sometimes the King and Queen – his parents – would open the castle doors and people would come bearing gifts; farmers presenting a small portion of their bountiful harvests after months of toil, blacksmiths with their polished swords or glittering trinkets, seamstresses and new a gown for the beautiful Queen. Once Jeonghan had received a charming little toy from an elderly craftsman; a beautiful wooden bird on top of a stick that would flap its wings if Jeonghan moved it up and down. It didn’t do anything else but he loved it anyway. However the craftsman had brought only one.

Jeonghan’s brows had scrunched together into a frown. “Could you come back with another one?”

“Another one?” the old man’s tone was filled with worry. “Why don’t you like this one, little prince? If you don’t mind me asking,” he added as an afterthought.

“Oh I do like this one!” As a young boy Jeonghan had hair that hung to his shoulders and it bounced as he nodded enthusiastically. “It’s just… I think my friend would one want too.”

But... summer at the city is in London and is only day side... even if the plan was to get a dog in august, dan and Phil could still do both. And I'm pretty sure they can't to playlist because it'll conflict with Japan 2.0 (assuming they go for 10 days after however long they stay in aus after the 22nd of April). If they weren't planning on going to vidcon in June, I'd totally agree with the moving in may but it doesn't seem likely. July's still free af tho.

they aren’t sure about going to playlist which would be moving in may and then not confirmed sitc so dog in august . math is simple

“"The Ones Who Walk Away from Omelas” is a 1973 plotless, short, descriptive work of philosophical fiction, popularly classified as a short story, by Ursula K. Le Guin. With deliberately both vague and vivid descriptions, the narrator depicts a summer festival in the utopian city of Omelas, whose prosperity depends on the perpetual misery of a single child.“

1. The short story opens on the day of the summer festival, hence the carnival ride.

2. and 3. The boys arrive in Omelas, where they live happily.

4. Upon finding out that the happiness in Omelas is reliant upon the suffering of a child they leave.

“Each alone, they go west or north, towards the mountains. They go on. They leave Omelas, they walk ahead into the darkness, and they do not come back. The place they go towards is a place even less imaginable to most of us than the city of happiness. I cannot describe it at all. It is possible that it does not exist. But they seem to know where they are going, the ones who walk away from Omelas.”

However, like the album is called, “you never walk alone”, the boys, even though the short story stresses walking away from Omelas alone, leave together.

((LOOK I FINALLY GOT TO IT! I hope you like it! And i actually REALLY enjoyed this one))

(Word Count: 2,664))

You could still remember the day your boat docked in Westeros. You had been sailing for the Free City of Braavos when the captain of your ship had stopped in King’ s Landing to stock up on a few provisions. Demanded to stay on deck, you did as you were told and watched from above as the little orphan children ran about playing their games. Everything had been so different from your childhood home of Jhala, of the Summer Isles.
