    Summary

    Seoul, summer 1993.
    Jungkook is sick of his hell of a life, made of alcohol and too many cigarettes. For once, he listens to his doctor and picks up a new hobby, photography. He takes nothing else but his motorbike and his Polaroid and rides to a city far away.
    Here, he meets the 'Omelas Boys', a not-so dangerous gang of bikers, and Taehyung, a boy that paints sunflowers all day in the silence of an empty field, showered with the burning sun of June.

    // Or

    Jungkook learns that friends can be the best way to find his peace.

    Summary

    It’s okay.

    This is okay.

    Jungkook feels soft next to him and Taehyung can smell his shampoo. The younger boy’s breath tickles his neck and somehow Taehyung finds comfort in all of it.

    or: Taehyung has to sell his body for sex to survive on the streets of Seoul. That all changes when a client hears him sing in the shower one night and introduces him to none other than the CEO of BigHit Entertainment. As crazy as it sounds, Taehyung is now set to debut with a band called Bangtan Sonyeondan. Between being a trainee, learning to trust his new band members and trying to forget his old life, Taehyung thinks that he finally starts to understand what happiness is and how it feels.

    Summary

    The clock is ticking, Jeon Jeongguk only has two bottles of water, one lunchbox, and ten bombs with which he has to kill six people if he wants to live. He's just eighteen and the only experience he has throwing bombs includes sitting in front of his screen, smashing buttons on his controller and swearing at his longstanding in-game rival, VforVictory.

    Someone has recreated the hit warfare videogame, Spine Breaker, and although Kim Seokjin is the mascot of the game, he knows nothing about how to play it but now finds himself launched in the middle of a stranded island, his bombs missing, his glasses smashed, and a pursuer who wants something more sinister than just his death.

    Min Yoongi knows why he's here. He knows why everyone is here, but his battles had begun long ago. The clock is ticking and Yoongi is running out of time, but he knows that zero is not the end.

    It's kill or be killed.

    Summary

    “What’s your zodiac sign?”

    “Virgo,” Jungkook responds without thinking. He frowns, glaring. “Why?”

    “Hm, I can work with that,” Taehyung says. “I’m a Capricorn.”

    “Fascinating. Now back to Chemistry -”

    “Isn’t that what I was talking about?”

    [Or, Jungkook just wants to get his tutoring sessions with the President's son over with. Taehyung just wants to get his cute tutor under him.]
