September AO3 Yoonmin readings:
This are all the fics I read this month. There are many because the majority are oneshots and because i had a lot of free time :p
1) No place in between (*)
Prompt: Yoonmin and sign language
I’m in love with stories where one of the characters is deaf. In this one it’s Yoongi and I loved taking a look at his insecurities and his strength. The way in which he confesses is the best thing in the world, i loved that so much as well as when he gets mad at Jhope for not telling Jimin beforehand about his condition.
2) Calling your bluff (*)
Jimin’s gotten himself into plenty of awkward situations when he bluffs his hearing, but this one really takes the prize.
(“I’m hoh and brilliant at bluffing, you’re my best friend who insisted on meeting me in the middle of a loud cafe. I can’t hear a word you’re saying but I’m smiling and nodding like I can hear and suddenly you seem really happy — Wait, what do you mean I just agreed to be your boyfriend??” au)
In this story Jimin is the one who has hearing problems. My favourite part was when Yoongi realises that there’s being a misunderstanding but Jimin keeps denying it. I thought that it was quite realistic and i really liked that.
3) Every day and all at once
There are things you said that i really wish you hadn’t.
Not a happy short fic: unrequited love.
4) Staring at the stars
“I’ve seen the way you look at me when you think i won’t notice.”
Yoongi doesn’t know how to be subtle.
5) Look it up
“Are you serious? Your top result is a yoonmin video?” Hoseok asked.
“Yeah, but I don’t know what that even is.“
“Okay, let’s go,” Namjoon declared, swinging his bag onto his shoulder as he lifted himself from the couch. Everyone made an effort to move themselves toward the front door.
“Hey, hyung?” Namjoon said quietly beside Yoongi.
“Look it up.”
Yoongi glanced away from the manga he planned to finish during downtime at the recording. “Huh?”
“Yoonmin. Just look it up.”
Yoongi stumbles on a "yoonmin” video while trying to find his most viewed fancam. Upon realizing the fans have noticed he tends to stare at Jimin, Yoongi becomes hyperaware of their interactions. Did the fans realize something he himself didn’t even know?
Jimin’s daughter’s favorite place is the playground opposite Yoongi’s apartment.
Single parent Jimin au.
7) Swimming pool
Jimin jumps into Yoongi’s swimming pool at 3 in the morning.
8) Body language
Yoongi really liked to touch Jimin, for no special reason.
9) Before the cold seeps in
“Kiss me before we get frostbite, asshole."
10) Pick me up
“what is it, jimin?”
jimin tilts his head to the side, one side of his mouth quirking up in a smirk. “did the sun come out, or did you just smile at me?”
(five times jimin tries a pick-up line on his hyung and one time yoongi finally gives in.)
11) You’re jealous (is it an inferiority complex?)
The five times that Yoongi got jealous, and the one time that the tables turn.
12) Love is not a coincidence (it’s fate) (*)
Thirteen years into their friendship, and Yoongi finally realizes that he’s in love with his best friend.
I’m a sucker for fics where they are childhood friends and we can see how they don’t only grow up physically but also how their relationship and their feelings develop for each other along the years. It was very well-written and I liked the Namjoon/Hoseok/Yoongi friendship, for me that’s always a plus. Also, i felt in love at seeing how even though Yoongi and Jimin were in different schools because of their age, Yoongi still went to pick up Jimin so that he didn’t have to go home alone. My heart melted a little bit at that, protective Yoongi has that effect on me.
13) Make a move (before I make a move) (contains smut)
Yoongi thought that taking Jimin down into Gyeonggi-do for spring break was a great idea. Jimin thought talking Yoongi into staying in a love motel for the night was a great idea.
A.K.A. - the Road Trip!AU that nobody asked for.
Sequel to So Kiss Me (which I read in July)
14) It’s your birthday but you’re my gift (*)
Yoongi celebrates 5 birthdays with Jimin over the course of 20 years.
(aka Yoongi growing up with Jimin only to realise he’s falling for his childhood friend).
Another childhood friends yoonmin fic. I don’t know what to say guys, I just really like these fics and every time I see one which is lengthy, well-written and where Yoongi and Jimin are in my opinion well portrayed I just have to recommend it.
Special mention to chapter 4 (I’m in love with that chapter, their conversation, Yoongi’s thoughts and insecurities EVERYTHING IS PERFECT ABOUT THAT CHAPTER) and chapter 5 (hey, it turns out that i’m also a sucker for long distance relationship yoonmin fics. SEND HELP I’M DROWNING).
15) Math Tutor (*)
Min Yoongi is the school’s resident Bad Boy™. He’s covered in tattoos, is pierced, curses like a sailor, smokes like crazy, doesn’t give a shit about anything, possesses a hot temper that has people steering clear of him, and is desperately in love with Park Jimin, the adorable math nerd. When Jimin is tasked with tutoring Yoongi in math, who is in danger of failing the class and being held back a year, both boys are hesitant. Yoongi because he can’t think straight around the boy with startling red hair, and Jimin because Yoongi is scary as hell and looks like he can easily kill someone. Gradually, though, the two grow closer, and Jimin finds that Yoongi is nothing like how he’d imagined.
BAD BOY YOONGI WHO HAS PIERCINGS AND TATTOOS AND NERD JIMIN. WHAT ELSE DO I HAVE TO SAY?? No but seriously, this was such a great read. It is so well written and Yoongi is so whipped for Jimin. I love it when Yoongi is a tough cookie with other people but immediately turns soft when he’s with Jimin. Namjoon and Hoseok are Yoongi’s friends and you already know that i’m totally down with that. Also, bad boy yoongi playing the piano. Summing up: Good stuff.
16) Home is where the (kittens) are
Calico Hybrid Jimin can’t stop bringing in strays off the streets and into he and Boyfriend Yoongi’s apartment.
Alt: More of whipped Yoongi; only now he’s got a spoiled cat hybrid to deal with.
17) I’ll be a gentleman (’cause I’ll be your boyfriend) (contains smut) (*)
Yoongi isn’t an easy man to surprise, but kisses out of the blue and sudden boyfriend proposals can do the job.
College au + Fake relationship. Yoongi and Jimin are roommates and there’s a boy who is kind of obsessed with Jimin so that’s why he asks Yoongi to be his fake boyfriend, to see if the other boy leaves him alone. Basically, as the story continues you can see both of them pinning and both are kinda oblivious to the other’s feelings. There’s also some smut which is also a plus. It was a great read, I really liked this long oneshot.
18) 13 Iconic Yoonmin Moments (Yoongi/Jimin & Taheyung/Jungkook)
I feel like you might want to watch this, hyung ;) 23:59”
Or, the one where Taehyung sends Yoongi a video that shows the top 13 Iconic Yoonmin Moments, and suddenly Yoongi is way too aware of the way Jimin acts around him.
19) Dear santa
“Please? Just once? And it’ll be really quick, hyungie, I promise,” Jimin tries again, plump lips curled up into a cute pout—the pout which they both know Yoongi can never say no to.
“Ah, fuck. Fine, fine, baby, I’ll do it.”
(or: Yoongi dresses up as Santa under Jimin’s request. Jungkook takes it the hard way.)
Jimin and Yoongi are baby Jungkookie’s parents. Very sweet.
20) Honey’s Secret (contains smut) (*)
“Me: So, are you going to send me a selca now or not?
Jimin is getting a little impatient now. He needs that picture, and he needs it now.
Me: hyung hyung hyung
Me: pretty please?
Yoongi hyung: Later, Jimin. I’m still at work and I really want to continue earning money by talking about sex toys on the phone with you
Yoongi hyung: And I have a feeling you enjoy those conversations as well.”
Yoongi is working for an online sex toy shop hotline. Jimin is calling said hotline. Many many times.
This story was awesome from start to finish and not only because THE SMUT IS FREAKING AWESOME. Because let me tell you: there’s not only phone sex but Yoongi is the one controlling the vibrator that Jimin is using while he’s at work and Jimin is at home and WOW. I didn’t know how much i needed that in my life but i did. If you want to read a strangers to lovers au with great smut this is your fic.
21) You’ll be okay
Yoongi and Jimin meet for the first time in an emergency room for two very different kinds of injuries.
Bad boy Yoongi.
22) Light me up (I’ll keep you warm) (*)
He’s already taking a deep breath when he hears someone twisting the doorknob. “Jung Hoseok, I have a bone to pick with you, you absolute asshole,” he starts.
It is not Jung Hoseok.
Jimin coughs awkwardly into his fist. “Hello,” he finishes.
(In which Jimin has a crush, yells a lot, and maybe falls into like.)
Another college au. It was lovely seeing Jimin being so protective of his best friend Taehyung and how that’s Yoongi’s first impression of him. I loved seeing how even though Jimin is the one who has a crush on Yoongi first, it’s Yoongi who takes the initiative to get to know Jimin once he meets him. JIMIN IS AWARE OF YOONGI’S FEELINGS WITHOUT HIM TELLING HIM WHICH IS AWESOME AND RARE TO SEE. Yoongi still doesn’t say anything so it’s Jimin’s job to take the initiative this time. There’s side vhope which was very sweet.
23) Bring on the sunshine (*)
With the help of their five year old “matchmaker” Taehyung, Yoongi and Jimin stumble into each other’s lives. Cue the awkward, messy pining and dating adventures with a noisy kid in their way.
Single parent Yoongi with tragic backstory and kindergarten teacher Jimin. WHAT ELSE CAN I SAY? This story was the sweetest story in the world please read it. I loved it so much. Everything about it was so good and kid Taehyung is the cutest and best matchmaker in the whole wide world. I think this is the best single parent au I’ve read yet. I will for sure reread it in the future.
24) You wish I was yours (and I hope that you’re mine)
Jimin is getting ready to sleep his summer away now that all his friends have left for college except for him. That is, though, until he meets Yoongi. A boy two years older than him from the city, who has been kicked out by his parents and is now living with his aunt.
Because of Yoongi Jimin learns more about himself in one summer than he has his entire life.
25) The weight of everything (*)
When Jimin enters his life, Yoongi discovers how it feels like to be flying, but also realises how it feels like to fall…desperately in love.
Childhood friends au (seriously i just realised that i read a lot of childhood friends aus this month lol). What I liked the most about this fic was Yoongi’s struggles to accept his sexuality and his parents reaction at the end. It was great. There’s angst but it has a happy ending. The cliff scenes are also very memorable imo.
~Celebrity Crush (Namjoon/Seokjin)
Right now Namjoon was exhausted and he’d been saying rude shit and he kept snapping at Taehyung and then they’d had to sit through that interview (“Who’s your celebrity crush?”) and Seokjin had tried making a joke (“Rap Monster,” he’d said, thinking he was being clever) and even as everyone around them cracked up the look that had flashed through Namjoon’s eyes belied something that looked almost brittle.
The kiss scenes will kill you. Both Namjoon and Seokjin are so well portrayed in my opinion. A good namjin story right here. BTS universe btw which is always great.
