JB: I'm here as well

Jinyoung: me too

Youngjae: present

bambam: great!!!!
bambam: guys there's a new student in my class

Jinyoung: that seriously all you came to say??

bambam: :(

Youngjae: ooh a new kid!

bambam: yes! :))
bambam: and i'm gonna be best friends with him!

JB: have you met him yet?

bambam: kinda? i mean he introduced himself to the class but we didn't really speak much
bambam: but he sits next to me so we did talk a bit

jacks: omg okay
jacks: what are your first impressions

bambam: tall

Mark: what a great first impression he must have made if the only thing u can say is that he's tall

bambam: shut up i'm not done

JB: mark, stop being sarcastic
JB: bambam, show respect to your hyung

bambam: ok fine
bambam: but back to my future best friend!

Youngjae: you can't know that bammie, you're not an oracle

jacks: no offense but why are you so set on befriending him

bambam: very funny youngjae hyung
bambam: but i just have this gut feeling about him
bambam: and also his smile is extremely cute

Mark: ...

Jinyoung: are you sure you're looking for a friend and not, let's say, a boyfriend?

bambam: what? no! i've only known him for like an hour!

JB: yet you keep saying he's gonna be your best friend

bambam: okay whatever
bambam: i just know that i'm gonna be friends with him because i know that i wanna be friends with him
bambam: also i have almost no normal friends :(

jacks: might have something to do with the fact that you're not normal yourself

bambam: excuse u
bambam: i'm offended

Jinyoung: you're literally a demon bammie

JB: so the new kid isn't anything supernatural?

bambam: idk
bambam: at least nothing obvious
bambam: as in that i saw no tail and no fangs, but who knows

Mark: did u get his number

jacks: lmao
jacks: as if bambam would remember to ask for that
jacks: he'd be too busy talking his head off

bambam: actually, i did get his number

jacks: oops

bambam: yeah
bambam: actually can i add him to this chat?

Youngjae: yeah that'd be fun :)

jacks: yeah sure

bambam: but don't mention any of your,.. special identities
bambam: i don't know how much he knows and i don't want us to be exposed

Mark: "special identities" lmao

Jinyoung: we won't say anything that could expose us

bambam: i mostly meant jackson but thanks hyung

JB: no need to thank us
JB: it's our secret just as much as it is yours
JB: and who knows, maybe he already knows about supernatural beings and won't be scared off if he accidentally finds out

bambam: a boy can dream...
bambam: but i'm adding him now!

bambam has added Gyeom to hey there demons

bambam: hello yugyeom!
bambam: it's me, bambam!
bambam: we sat next to each other in the class we just had!

Gyeom: yeah i remember, hi!
Gyeom: omg who are all these people

JB: Yugyeom, hi!

Gyeom: jaebum-hyung is that you?

JB: Yes it is hahah

Gyeom: oh, hello hyung!
Gyeom: i guess i don't have to give you my number now lol

Jinyoung: wait, jb you know him?

JB: I mean I've met him
JB: he tried out for the dance team earlier this morning

jacks: ooh, did he make the team?

JB: this would be pretty awkward if he didn't

bambam: oh i didn't know you danced yugyeom!

Gyeom: uh yeah
Gyeom: but we met like an hour ago so i don't think you should be surprised by not knowing stuff about me lol
Gyeom: but who are all these people?

bambam: oh they're my hyungs!
bambam: we're kinda like a squad since most of them go to our school
bambam: well, everyone except jinyoung hyung because he doesn't go to school
bambam: but we've all been friends for a few years

Gyeom: oh
Gyeom: am i intruding?

Mark: no, you're fine

bambam: i mean i'm the one who added you to the chat, and they all think it's okay for you to be here
bambam: so don't think we don't want you here!
bambam: and this way u can make some new friends :)
bambam: didn't the teacher say you just moved to korea from somewhere?

Gyeom: oh yeah, from saudi arabia
Gyeom: but before that i lived in america

jacks: oh, a traveler

JB: were you born in america?

Gyeom: no i moved there when i was thirteen :)
Gyeom: before that i lived in korea

jacks: important question
jacks: how much money do u have?


Gyeom: 69 cents

jacks: oh, u know what that means!

Gyeom: i don't have enough money for chicken nuggets T-T


bambam: i know we got seated next to each other for a reason!
bambam: aside from the fact that the seat next to me was empty but yknow what i mean

Jinyoung: ...what did i just witness

jacks: i know ur old but u gotta keep up with the culture!

Mark: they just quoted a vine jinyoung

Gyeom: oh is jinyoung the oldest?

bambam: uuh
bambam: he's actually third youngest
bambam: or now that you're here i guess he's exactly in the middle

Gyeom: oh okay

jacks: hyungs can we please keep this child? he knows vines

Gyeom: you barely know me though
Gyeom: also i'm still confused about who you guys are
Gyeom: right now you're just a bunch of names on my screen
Gyeom: well, aside from bambam and jb hyung

Jinyoung: he's already calling you hyung

JB: that's cause I said he could
JB: didn't really wanna be called sunbaenim

bambam: oof

Youngjae: lol

Mark: guys, maybe we should introduce ourselves

bambam: can we do it after class? we start in like a minute

Gyeom: yeah that'd be great

JB: sure, of course
JB: text when you're finished and we'll do that then

jacks: see you guys soon

JB: we're literally in the same class

jacks: i know
jacks: i was talking to the young beans

bambam: oh yugyeom! youngjae is actually in our class as well!
bambam: i'll introduce you to him right now!

Gyeom: great!
Gyeom: thank you so much

bambam: it's really no problem

Youngjae: see u guys in a bit

Jinyoung: put your phones away and focus on school

bambam: yes mom

Gyeom: lol

hey there demons [7]

12:01 pm

bambam: wait it's lunch
bambam: yugyeom where did u disappear?

Mark: maybe you wanna join us for lunch yugyeom?

Gyeom: bambam i just went to the bathroom lol
Gyeom: also i can't have lunch with you today, i already promised some other people i'd eat with them, sorry :(

bambam: wait how can u have friends here already
bambam: thought you just moved here

Gyeom: actually,.. that's a really complicated question
Gyeom: basically i have friends in america that have friends in korea that i used to be friends with as a kid

JB: uuh okay

jacks: makes no sense but sure

Youngjae: maybe another day?

Gyeom: sure hyung :)

Jinyoung: he calls you hyung now too?

Youngjae: i mean, yeah
Youngjae: we're in the same class so i've met him now

JB: why didn't you say that when bambam told us about the new kid then?
JB: weren't u there when the teacher introduced him

Youngjae: being supposed to be there and actually being there is not the same thing

Jinyoung: ...
Jinyoung: were you late to school or were you asleep at your desk?

Youngjae: ...asleep

Mark: whatever
Mark: have a nice lunch yugyeom! i hope we get to meet you soon

Gyeom: yeah you too, and me too
Gyeom: wait that made no sense
Gyeom: i meant you too as in you have a nice lunch as well, and me too as in i also want to meet you soon

jacks: lmao

Jinyoung: that was confusing but nice

bambam: okay creatures that are having lunch with me
bambam: are you guys already at our table??

JB: hang on, weren't we gonna do introductions?

bambam: oh yeah!
bambam: yugyeom are you still here?

Gyeom: yup

bambam: great! then we'll do that quick
bambam: should we do it in age order?

jinyoung: which one?

bambam: ...

JB: ...the one in age order, where we go in order of age?

Jinyoung: oh
Jinyoung: yeah sure

Gyeom: lol what's so confusing about age order? it's not like that can mean different things

jacks: yeah lol
jacks: mark hyung you're first

Mark: sure
Mark: hey yugyeom! i'm mark, i'm a senior
Mark: guys what else am i supposed to say

jacks: that's too short
jacks: tell him one of your hobbies or smth

Mark: and i guess i like gaming
Mark: also i used to live in america so i guess we can relate to each other about that

Gyeom: you did? that's so cool! were u born there?

Mark: yeah i was

Gyeom: cool! i only lived there for about two and a half years, but i still miss it

Mark: yeah, so do i
Mark: most of my family is still there

Gyeom: that must be hard, to live so far away from them

Mark: sometimes
Mark: but i have a family here so i don't miss it too much
Mark: i came to korea almost three years ago and became friends with these guys almost immediately
Mark: having friends made it a lot easier

Gyeom: i feel you

bambam: good thing you're in this chat then yugyeom!

JB: fair warning though
JB: what you've seen so far has probably been their best behavior in years
JB: they're usually a lot less civilized

Jinyoung: that is very true
Jinyoung: expect this chat to blow up at random times during the day for the most stupidest reasons

Youngjae: yeah, we're all crackheads here

bambam: we've been surprisingly normal today guys
bambam: we should celebrate that by eating dinner backwards tonight!

Gyeom: oh do you guys live together?

jacks: yes and no

JB: none of us live at home but we don't live together all six of us in one house
JB: we have two houses between us, and both houses are on the same street so it's almost like we do

Mark: me and jinyoung live in one house while the other four live right next door
Mark: but everyone spends the night in other people's rooms so many times that it's hard to know who actually lives where

Gyeom: that sounds fun!

jacks: it is! at least most of the time

Jinyoung: guys could you get on with the introductions?
Jinyoung: i need to go grocery shopping but i don't wanna miss my turn

Mark: it's jb's turn now

JB: okay yugyeom
JB: you kind of know me already
JB: my name is Im Jaebum, a lot of people call me JB, I'm the leader of the dance team and I'm a senior
JB: I don't have much more to say

jacks: i can add that hyung has three moods:
jacks: dancing, studying or sleeping

bambam: lmao that's accurate

Gyeom: nice introduction

jacks: my names jackson wang and i'm from china, i'm a senior, and i love fencing

Gyeom: so u like poking people with sticks

jacks: ...

Jinyoung: HAHAH i like this one

jacks: i am OFFENDED
jacks: i still like u because u know memes but you're on thin ice yugyeom

Mark: i think we should move on
Mark: jinyoung?

Jinyoung: okay
Jinyoung: my name is obviously jinyoung, i don't go to school, and i'm 112 years old

Gyeom: lol

Jinyoung: also this group has six collective braincells that we share and i'm usually the one who has them
Jinyoung: so if you need someone to be logical, you should come to me and never trust the other ones at all

Gyeom: i'll keep that in mind

Jinyoung: okay now the next one can go

Youngjae: hello i'm youngjae! ^.^ but you already sort of know me cause we met
Youngjae: you already know what year i'm in so i don't have to tell you that
Youngjae: but i guess my hobby is sleeping

jacks: don't forget singing

bambam: yeah, he's always doing vocal practice so much that i almost cry as soon as he opens his mouth

Youngjae: excuse you

bambam: and that was a joke but you get my point

JB: bambam, only your introduction left

bambam: well yugyeom you already know me

Gyeom: fbf

bambam: yes!

JB: wait what does that mean

bambam: it stands for future best friend!

jacks: ohmygod bammie have u already corrupted the new child?

bambam: no!

Jinyoung: seems to me like you have

Gyeom: why?

Mark: cause you just called him your future best friend
Mark: that's what he called you before he added you to this chat

Gyeom: oh i didn't know that
Gyeom: but he had only talked to me for like five minutes when he added me here?

jacks: we know
jacks: but bambam makes friends easily and doesn't understand that other people may not consider you friends when you've literally just met
jacks: also, didn't u just call him your future best friend?

Gyeom: i mean,.. u have a point

bambam: wait
bambam: yugyeom are you my hyung? when's your birthday?

Youngjae: actually that's a good question since we're all in the same year

Gyeom: oh
Gyeom: i think i skipped a grade?
Gyeom: cause i was born in november so i'm younger than all of you

JB: oh we have a new maknae

bambam: lol, the enthusiasm is real

Gyeom: okay but i'm not really your maknae cause i still don't really know you guys

Mark: give it a week
Mark: everyone shares way too much information in this group
Mark: you're gonna know everything about everyone in no time

Youngjae: i wish i could say he exaggerated but it's true

jacks: lmao good luck to u gyeom

Gyeom: thanks? i guess?

Jinyoung: okay could we at least try to be nice? maybe
Jinyoung: let's not overwhelm the poor kid

bambam: sigh
bambam: fine
bambam: but i still think we should have backwards dinner tonight

JB: ...and the crackhead is out

bambam added Mark, JB and 3 others to spooky bois

bambam: i need to mention our special identities
bambam: hence the new chat

jacks: does this have to do with chan being back from australia?

bambam: yeah
bambam: he told me had heard about another korean coven being targeted by some demon?
bambam: apparently one of the members of chan's coven knows a member of this other coven
bambam: i don't know why they were being targeted though

JB: wait, what are you saying?

jacks: is chan's coven being targeted by a demon???

bambam: no, one of their friend covens is!
bambam: or idk if it's still going on

Mark: and you said it's a korean coven?

bambam: yeah
bambam: but i don't think they're currently in korea?

Youngjae: wow bam, you really have all the details

bambam: sigh

JB: was chan worried that the demon would be targeting other covens?

bambam: i dunno
bambam: i'm just relaying information

Mark: was there really no reason why they were being targeted?

bambam: not that chan knew of

jacks: and you said they're not in korea? what's their name?

bambam: ateez
bambam: not sure what country they're in, but they're korean

JB: and they're being targeted by a demon for seemingly no reason?

bambam: yeah
bambam: chan seemed worried about it, that's why i'm telling you
bambam: i don't even think ateez are a full coven

Youngjae: should we be worried?

JB: no
JB: there's no reason for us to worry right now
JB: we have too little information to even be discussing this right now
JB: i'll ask chan more about it next time i see him
JB: until then, none of you have to worry about this

bambam: k great

jacks: nice
jacks: bye guys

hey there demons [7]

1:07 am

bambam: yugyeom!
bambam: what is your third favorite farm animal?

Mark: bambam

bambam: what???

Mark: you have to stop asking people that

Jinyoung: also it's 1 am

bambam: well it's an important question
bambam: i'm just trying to get to know the guy!

Jinyoung: at one am?

Mark: by asking for his third favorite farm animal?

bambam: well, when you put it that way...

Gyeom: horses

bambam: omg why

Gyeom: just because
Gyeom: i don't really have a reason
Gyeom: but chickens are first, then cows, then horses

bambam: hmm
bambam: i think i would switch cows and horses, but otherwise i agree with you

Mark: ...

Jinyoung: ...
Jinyoung: i'm so jealous that the others get to sleep through this shit

Gyeom: why don't you just go to bed hyung? ^-^

Jinyoung: oh i'm not tired

Gyeom: ah okay, i guess i saw you more as a morning than a night person

Jinyoung: oh yeah
Jinyoung: i'm a little mix of both
Jinyoung: but the rest of you should go to bed!

bambam: but mooom

Mark: "no buts"

Jinyoung: no buts!
Jinyoung: oh
Jinyoung: mark already said it

Mark: lmao yeah, i know you too well

bambam: okay then bye guys

Jinyoung: night yugyeom!

Mark: gnight

spooky bois [6]

7:33 am

jacks: jinyoung your child is crying

Jinyoung: WHICH ONE??? WHERE IS HE??

jacks: youngjae
jacks: he's in the living room and crying because he saw a dead bird this morning

Jinyoung: ...i'm coming
Jinyoung: but also i'm not his parent

JB: the fact that you're his emergency contact and used to go to all his school's parent meetings say otherwise

bambam: wait why is this happening in this gc and not the "hey there demons" one???

jacks: oh
jacks: i just assumed youngjae crying had to do with him being what he is
jacks: or that someone would say something about how jinyoung raised youngjae, which wouldn't make sense if u don't know what jinyoung is

JB: well, you're the one who brought that up


jacks: tf??
jacks: since when do u have animal friends??

Youngjae: since always!!!!!

Jinyoung: youngjae-ah, i'm coming to you

JB: at least someone in this group is nice

bambam: i breathed????¿??

Jinyoung: well i didn't

bambam: ...
bambam: i hate that you're telling the truth

jacks: rip in peace jinyoung's breathing, 1907-1925

Mark: lmao

jacks: but also i have a question
jacks: bambam are you interested in anyone

bambam: no wtf

JB: where is this coming from?

jacks: ...things
jacks: but i didn't ask if you had a crush, just if you were interested in anyone
jacks: cause i think you definitely are

bambam: omg stop pushing your gay agenda onto me!

Jinyoung: so you didn't text yugyeom last night at one am?

bambam: you were all there, you saw it
bambam: or well you weren't there but you're all in the chat so you probs saw it this morning

Mark: i think jinyoung is talking about how you and yugyeom kept texting for like an hour after you said you were going to bed

bambam: whaaat
bambam: who said i did that??

Jinyoung: mark hyung did

Mark: bambam, you're not sneaky

bambam: damn
bambam: and here i was thinking i had gotten away with it

jacks: soo...

bambam: fine! maybe yugyeom is kinda cute and kinda funny and i kinda consider him my friend even though we only met this week
bambam: but it's not like i think about him at night or anything

JB: you texted him at one am?

bambam: ...shit
bambam: ok but it's not like i'm in love or anything
bambam: we haven't known each other long enough

jacks: so you're saying there's a chance you're going to fall in love with him???

bambam: idk,
bambam: maybe???++??????

Youngjae: wow i can't believe you're having this conversation before 8 in the morning

bambam: oh shit i have school!

Jinyoung: you all do

jacks: oh crap we should go

Mark: bold of you to assume i haven't already left the house

jacks: traitor

hey there demons [7]

3:35 pm

JB: hey kids
JB: i just wanted to tell you that i now have a new Son

Jinyoung: jaebum, you can't just go around adopting kids

JB: isn't that what you did with youngjae and bambam?

Jinyoung: ...that's fair

Mark: lol where did this come from?

jacks: who'd u adopt??

JB: his name is Yugyeom, aka Gyoemie
JB: he is now your younger brother

Youngjae: wait when did you meet him??

JB: we have dance practice right now and he is Talented
JB: he is also an absolute Angel

Mark: lol wut

JB: i mean it's not like i thought he was impolite or anything, but this??
JB: it is the behavior of an Angel

Jinyoung: if you're in dance practice, then why are you on your phone?

JB: break time

jacks: then why isn't bambam on his phone lmao

JB: he's preoccupied with yugyeom

jacks: damn, already??

JB: not like that you perv
JB: they're just joking with each other
JB: but yugyeom is really nice and he's also cute

Mark: oof

JB: i literally just called him my son so don't you dare think i mean anything else you little shits

Mark: little shit?
Mark: i could literally invert your organs

JB: don't say that in this group chat!!

jacks: why?? it's not like he outright said that he can do magic

Jinyoung: well now you've done it

Youngjae: don't worry guys we'll just spam the chat
Youngjae: yugyeom doesn't scroll up

JB: i still think you're all little shits

Mark: i will melt your teeth and put them in a smoothie
Mark: and it will be Organic

jacks: hyung wtf

Youngjae: welp
Youngjae: now we know who makes the best threats

Jinyoung: the scariest part is that i don't doubt that he could actually do that

Mark: emotionally? i could never
Mark: but i mean i have the power to do it

JB: okay, break's almost over

Jinyoung: go back to your dancers then

JB: they're not MY dancers

Jinyoung: oh? so you're not the leader then?

JB: i never said that

jacks: omg hyung just go back to them

JB: k

spooky bois [6]

4:05 pm

Jinyoung: guys, i want to meet yugyeom

Youngjae: say that to him instead of us lol

Jinyoung: no that's weird
Jinyoung: he's only gone to your school for three days, it's too soon
Jinyoung: i mean he's still settling in

jacks: i mean... i wanna meet him too

Mark: i agree with jinyoung
Mark: we could talk to him through the gc for a little longer

bambam: friends
bambam: why are you talking about my new friend like this?

jacks: read our messages?

bambam: lmao i did
bambam: just wondering why everyone is so interested in meeting someone they know essentally nothing about

JB: *essentially

bambam: fuck off

JB: ...

Jinyoung: be nice

Mark: that's actually why i want to meet him
Mark: you, youngjae and jb also know essentially nothing about him, yet you all seem pretty fond of him already

jacks: hyung actually makes a good point

Youngjae: well he's just super pleasant to be around?
Youngjae: and most people at school don't talk to us cause we always keep to ourselves
Youngjae: which is nice and all,
Youngjae: but that makes it hard to meet new people

bambam: that's true
bambam: everyone knows we're a close group so no one really tries to talk to any of us

Jinyoung: hm

Mark: you sure yugyeom's not a siren who's just enchanted you all to like him so much?

bambam: i think i would have noticed if someone was enchanting me hyung
bambam: give me more credit than that

Mark: i didn't mean to offend you
Mark: but some creatures can do it in a really subtle way, sometimes they don't even notice it themselves

jacks: hyung has a point

Youngjae: i don't think yugyeom is anything supernatural

JB: but if we really wanted to find out, i guess he could meet mark hyung

Jinyoung: cause mark would be able to sense it from his aura, right?

Mark: yea i would

bambam: great, then you can have lunch with me and yugyeom tomorrow

bambam -> Gyeom [private chat]

7:55 am

bambam: hey yugyeom it's me!
bambam: how would you feel about having lunch with me and one of my friends today?

Gyeom: oh, is it someone from the group chat?

bambam: yeah! mark hyung!
bambam: he's the oldest and he's not as intense to be around as some of the others
bambam: so i just thought it would be easier to meet him before jackson or jinyoung
bambam: and meeting everyone could be kinda overwhelming

Gyeom: oh
Gyeom: yeah, i guess that's true

bambam: i forgot to mention that this is because they all want to meet you

Gyeom: no pressure or anything lol

bambam: lmao
bambam: but you can say no if you want to
bambam: i get that everything is still pretty new here and we're not exactly the most calm group of people to get to know

Gyeom: oh no it's fine!
Gyeom: tbh, i don't think i've ever had calm friends
Gyeom: i wouldn't know how to act

bambam: oh? are you talking about your friends from america?

Gyeom: yeah
Gyeom: and the ones from saudi arabia
Gyeom: even though we were all originally from korea

bambam: you had korean friends in saudi arabia??

Gyeom: well, i was actually there with a dance team
Gyeom: there were nine of us that moved there to train for a year
Gyeom: we were all korean and had auditioned to be there

bambam: wait, were you in a company?? like an idol company???

Gyeom: yeah lol
Gyeom: but we weren't training to be idols, just dancers

bambam: what the actual, that's so cool!

Gyeom: yeah i suppose it is

bambam: wait are you still with them? then why did you move to our high school?

Gyeom: no, i had to leave the group a few weeks ago and that's when i came to korea
Gyeom: they've still in saudi arabia but they only have a month more of training before coming back

bambam: if it's not too rude to ask, why did you leave?
bambam: it sounds as if you liked the group, and i already know that you love dancing
bambam: so why stop?

Gyeom: family problems i guess?

bambam: you guess?

Gyeom: hahha it's hard to explain without getting all deep and personal
Gyeom: but yeah, i couldn't stay because of certain people in my family

bambam: that's too bad..,
bambam: i hope things work out between you and your family

Gyeom: thanks
Gyeom: so do i..

bambam -> Mark [private chat]

hey there demons [7]

11:58 am

bambam: friends...
bambam: family...
bambam: fuckers...
bambam: i have news for you!

JB: did you just call us fuckers?

Jinyoung: immediately after calling us your family??

bambam: okay hyungs that was a long time ago let's move on to the news

Jinyoung: it was less than a minute ago?

bambam: practically AN ETERNITY to me
bambam: oh and someone should tell mark hyung to unblock me cause i need to ask where i'm meeting him

JB: he blocked you?

bambam: is that not what i just said
bambam: but that's not important
bambam: what i came here to tell you is that i'm having lunch!
bambam: food!

jacks: k.

bambam: okay i get that you might not be excited for lunch, but i am
bambam: so please let me be EXCITED about giving my body some NUTRITIENTS!!!

JB: it's nutrients

bambam: oh whatever

Jinyoung: how tf did you spell carbohydrates right but got nutrients wrong??

bambam: you see, it all started when FUCK OFF OKAY LEAVE ME ALONE OKAY
bambam: everyone makes mistakes and i wish you would accept mine

JB: we do accept your mistakes
JB: but we also love to point them out to tease you

Youngjae: in the most loving way we can

bambam: this doesn't feel very loving? like at all?

Jinyoung: yeah, it can easily be mistaken as us being mean
Jinyoung: though that's up for interpretation

Youngjae: no it's not
Youngjae: we always do it with good intentions

Jinyoung: or at least arguably nice intentions

Youngjae: ...

bambam: there's no winning this, is there

Youngjae: there never is

bambam: well i've said what i came to say
bambam: so you suckers (and in jinyoung's case i mean that literally) can stick to this group chat while i have lunch with my new friend!


jacks: we're all atheists but ok

Youngjae: as far as religion go, that's debatable...

jacks: knowing that the devil exists isn't the same as having a religion

Youngjae: true true

JB: keep this type of discussion out of this gc before i kick you all out

jacks: yessir

Youngjae: okay dad

Jinyoung: bambam leaves and so you think you're fine, but then these crackheads come out
Jinyoung: if i could i would leave this group but then i remember my emotional attachment and i'm like
Jinyoung: "dammit, why'd i have to go get attached for?? seriously, what was the reason??"

JB: lmao

Mark: i relate

hey there demons [7]

12:56 pm

Gyeom: what if instead of thursday, it was called thirstday??
Gyeom: ...wait
Gyeom: this is not the chat i meant to send that to

Youngjae: ...

bambam: lMAO

jacks: omfg this child is funny
jacks: hyungs can we keep him???

JB: jackson, it doesn't work like that

Jinyoung: oh?

JB: don't say a word about whatever you're thinking about

Jinyoung: i wasn't going to
Jinyoung: and i definitely wasn't going to mention what you said yesterday about adopting random children

Gyeom: all i said was thirstday and now i'm being adopted??

Jinyoung: no, cause it's not legal

JB: what does legality matter?
JB: yugyeom, you are now my Child

Mark: jb you can't just say that, you'll scare him away

Gyeom: oh no it's fine, my real parents are never with me so like, feel free to adopt me hahah

Jinyoung: ...i retract my previous statements
Jinyoung: congratulations yugyeom, i am now your mother

bambam: what do you mean your parents are never with you?

Youngjae: yeah, don't you live with them?

Gyeom: nah
Gyeom: my dad is a dick so i haven't seen him since i was like a year old
Gyeom: i don't really remember the guy to be honest
Gyeom: and i live alone, but my mom visits like once every year so i'm not entirely on my own

Mark: "visits once every year" sounds kinda like you're on your own to me

JB: welp i guess i have no choice but to adopt you then
JB: we normally have family dinners every friday but consider you haven't even met all of us yet i think we'd freak you out

jacks: i take offense at that

Jinyoung: good, cause you should

Youngjae: omf that's brutal

JB: buuut i guess since i'll see you in dance practice, you'll be able to get to know me better
JB: well, me and bambam
JB: and youngjae since he's in your regular classes

Gyeom: so what you're saying is i have no choice but to get to know you guys since you're around me all the time?

Mark: yea basically

jacks: and since we're a package deal you're gonna get to know the rest of us too
jacks: even if it's only through a group chat
jacks: at least for right now

Youngjae: we're like a "buy one, get five free" kinda group

Gyeom: oml i love that

JB: an Angel

bambam: did you completely miss that he just wrote thirstday??
bambam: what kind of angel do you think says that??

jacks: a fallen one

Gyeom: oh you mean like a demon

jacks: yup lol

Gyeom: lmao i appreciate those kind words

JB: no, i wasn't calling him a demon!
JB: why tf would i do that

bambam: :/

JB: not that there's anything wrong with being a demon, of course

bambam: :)

JB: i was just calling him an angel

Gyeom: lol i love how accurate both those words are

jacks: yugyeom you're not a demon

Gyeom: yeah okay lol

jacks: ...
jacks: are you a demon?

Gyeom: why are you so serious suddenly

JB: well done everybody we got everything we needed now go do something else

Mark: you can't just cut a conversation like you cut a movie scene

JB: is that not what i just did

Mark: ...touché

Youngjae: class started a few minutes ago so we really shouldn't be on our phones

Jinyoung: ffs jaebum why didn't you say something??!?

JB: i'm obviously also on my phone
JB: it would be hypocritical to tell the others to stop when i'm doing the same thing

Jinyoung: sigh
Jinyoung: everyone put your phone away now or i will steal them from you when you sleep tonight

bambam: suddenly i have no phone
bambam: bye hyung!

Youngjae: lol i can see bambam practically throwing his phone into his bag

Jinyoung: that better be your last message in this chat within this next hour youngjae-ah

Mark: you don't get to tell me to put my phone away

Jinyoung: i'm older than you

Mark: that's debatable

Jinyoung: okay fuck
Jinyoung: just don't text in this gc while everyone's in class

Mark: k

Jinyoung: so
Jinyoung: finally
Jinyoung: everyone is gone

jacks: lmao u thought


jacks: oh crap

hey there demons [7]

10:00 am

bambam: I AM SCARED

Jinyoung: wait what's this, what's going on?


JB: what's wrong with yugyeom?

Youngjae: he wasn't in class today
Youngjae: i suppose he's sick but bambam's being dramatic

bambam: GONE

Gyeom: uh, hey hahah

JB: hi yugyeom!
JB: not to sound like bambam but why aren't you in school?

Gyeom: oh, i'm just sick
Gyeom: i'll be back on monday!

bambam: IT's FRIDAY today
bambam: but also, i hope you feel better soon!

Gyeom: thanks!

Mark: bambam, i have a revolutionary idea
Mark: they're called phones
Mark: you can use them to communicate

bambam: okay?

Mark: so you don't have to keep wailing about missing yugyeom
Mark: you can talk to him everyday until he comes back to school
Mark: isn't that neat?

bambam: hyung i know what phones are

JB: then why are you being so dramatic about this

bambam: dramatic? ME???
bambam: i don't think so

jacks: have a nice time living in denial!

bambam: thanks hyung!
bambam: wait no

Jinyoung: hang on, aren't you guys supposed to be in class right now?

Mark: starts in like a minute

Jinyoung: then get away from here!

bambam: lol yes hyung

Jinyoung -> Gyeom [private chat]

10:14 am

Jinyoung: hello yugyeom, it's me jinyoung

Gyeom: hey hyung
Gyeom: yeah i know who you are hehe

Jinyoung: how are you feeling?

Gyeom: it's just a cold, nothing serious, i just don't want to get others sick by being in school

Jinyoung: okay
Jinyoung: so i guess this might be a weird thing to ask, but do you want me to bring over some food?
Jinyoung: i don't even have to stick around if you don't want me to
Jinyoung: but i remember you saying that you live on your own so i just want to make sure that you'll be fine today

Gyeom: no! you really don't have to bother! i really will be fine!
Gyeom: also, not to sound rude but don't you have somewhere to be during the days?

Jinyoung: yes i usually have work but not today

Gyeom: ah okay
Gyeom: but you really don't have to do anything for me!
Gyeom: besides, i have very nice neighbors that know about my situation and they said they were gonna bring me food today
Gyeom: so i think i'll be okay

Jinyoung: are you sure?

Gyeom: yes, positive
Gyeom: but thanks for offering, it means a lot even though you don't know me hahaha

Jinyoung: whether you know it or not, you already have bambam and jb wrapped around your finger
Jinyoung: also i said yesterday that i adopted you so i have to live up to that role now

Gyeom: lol okay

hey there demons [7]

6:42 pm

bambam: hyungs, it's sunday

Mark: yes we are aware

bambam: yugyeom hasn't said anything in this chat for two whole days!!!
bambam: what if he's decided that he doesn't wanna be friends with us?
bambam: or what if

spooky bois [6]

6:44 pm

bambam: he figured out what we are and decided to avoid us?

JB: what??
JB: nvm, i just read the other chat
JB: and i don't think he knows what we are

bambam: but what if he does though? i mean, we've left a lot of clues
bambam: not that he ever scrolls up in the gc lmao

JB: if he somehow knows about us, then we'll deal with that

bambam: how???

Jinyoung: chill out a bit, child
Jinyoung: if he did see the weird messages, he would almost definitely think it's a joke

jacks: unless he's also a supernatural creature

Mark: no, i don't think he is
Mark: i would've picked up on that when we met at lunch

jacks: okay, so he's human

Jinyoung: yes
Jinyoung: and unless he knows about supernatural creatures existing, then he'll just think we're joking

JB: and if he does know about the supernatural, then his first reaction probably wouldn't be to run away

Mark: that depends on what experience he has with it though

JB: okay, you're right, but i don't think he has been ignoring us
JB: if he really was running away from us, then he'd have left the chat, which he hasn't
JB: i think he's just been busy this weekend

Jinyoung: or he might have been resting since, yknow, he said he's sick

bambam: oh
bambam: okay
bambam: yeah, i guess that makes more sense ahahha

Youngjae: if you're really worried, you could just go private chat and ask how he's feeling or smth

jacks: yeah, he'd probably respond to that

bambam: oh, good idea!!
bambam: thank you hyungs!

bambam -> Gyeom [private chat]

6:55 pm

bambam: hey gyeom, how are you feeling?
bambam: you haven't said anything in the gc so i just wanted to make sure you're okay



bambam: okay i guess you'll reply when you see this
bambam: ...
bambam: i hope you're okay



01:05 am

Gyeom: ohmygosh i'm so sorry i didn't see this until now
Gyeom: i was out and forgot my phone at home
Gyeom: but yeah, i'm feeling a lot better, thank you for asking ^.^


Gyeom: ??? you're awake too

bambam: oh lol yeah i guess you got me there
bambam: but we have school tomorrow!
bambam: or i guess technically it's today, but yknow it's whatever

Gyeom: yeah so why aren't you asleep right now?

bambam: why aren't you?

Gyeom: i literally started this conversation by saying that i was out
Gyeom: i got home like ten minutes ago

bambam: wHY were you out that late??!

Gyeom: lol what are you my mother?

bambam: no but jinyoung is and i won't hesitate to tell him

Gyeom: so what if you do? it's not like i'm scared of him or anything

bambam: ...
bambam: here i go, pulling up his contact...

Gyeom: okay i was kidding please don't tell him!

bambam: lmao, i won't

Gyeom: okay
Gyeom: are you going to sleep then?

bambam: are you?

Gyeom: only if you are

bambam: then i guess i am

Gyeom: okay

bambam: yeah

Gyeom: good night bambam!

bambam: good night yugyeom
bambam: see you tomorrow?

Gyeom: yeah
Gyeom: see you ^-^

hey there demons [7]

8:11 am

jacks: WHY did no one tell me that namjoon is back in korea???!???!?

Mark: uuh

JB: maybe cause we don't know him?

Jinyoung: you're the only one who does jackson

Youngjae: how did you find out?

jacks: i had to find out through an INSTAGRAM POST of all things!
jacks: this is peak betrayal
jacks: namjoon is officially not on my friend list

JB: then why aren't you messaging him instead of us?

jacks: i have but he hasn't responded and i need to get out my anger

bambam: go poke some people or whatever it is you normally do

jacks: POKE some people??!??!?
jacks: bambam, it's called FENCING and it's a TOUGH SPORT
jacks: not just a nice little poke with a stick!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Gyeom: wait you know namjoon hyung?

JB: wait what

jacks: hang on how do YOU know him yugyeom??

Gyeom: are we even talking about the same person
Gyeom: does your namjoon live in america?

jacks: omg yes he does! but he's currently in korea!
jacks: kim namjoon? moved to the us like four years ago?

Gyeom: yeah, he went to my old school there! we were in the same friend group!

jacks: omg what
jacks: did you know that he's in korea right now?? or am i the only betrayed one

Gyeom: uh yeah i kinda knew that
Gyeom: he's the one i hung out with last night

Youngjae: is the rest of your friend group also in korea right now?

Gyeom: nah not anymore

jacks: ohmygosh
jacks: this betrayal just gets worse and worse
jacks: hang on a sec

spooky bois [6]

8:19 am

jacks: guys
jacks: you know that namjoon's friend group is a coven, right??
jacks: cause yugyeom just said that he's part of namjoon's friend group

Mark: yugyeom is still human though

Jinyoung: yeah, mark already checked with his powers that he is

jacks: ok, maybe yugyeom's human but i think he knows about the supernatural

Youngjae: isn't namjoon an oracle?
Youngjae: they don't really have any quirks that would expose them
Youngjae: yugyeom might not know about him

bambam: but yugyeom said he was in their friendship group
bambam: namjoon's friends are different creatures, not just oracles

Mark: everyone here realizes that the only way to find out is either by asking yugyeom, or if he exposes himself? right?

Jinyoung: mark is right, this discussion is unnecessary
Jinyoung: we won't know unless we ask

Youngjae: or unless he exposes himself

jacks: well whatever

hey there demons [7]

8:24 am

jacks: i will delete namjoon from my life
jacks: i now only have five and a half friends

Jinyoung: did you only have six friends before?

Youngjae: i guess it used to be us five + namjoon hyung

JB: who's the half friend?

Gyeom: is it me??

jacks: yes it is lol
jacks: oh hang on namjoon just texted me

Youngjae: watch him make a 180 and take back namjoon as his friend

jacks: he asked if i want to meet him!
jacks: sorry guys but i'll be busy after school today

bambam: i thought he wasn't your friend anymore??

jacks: oh no he's back on my friend list now
jacks: i mean, he said he'd buy me food

Youngjae: oh a dinner date

jacks: uh, no
jacks: i'm more attracted to the food than to namjoon
jacks: it's definitely not a date

bambam: wow, you're really pushing the anti-gay agenda here

jacks: no!!
jacks: i'm pushing the aroace agenda!!!

Gyeom: no romantic or sexual attraction, just food

jacks: lmao he catches on so quick

Gyeom: and it's not like it could be a date anyway
Gyeom: i mean, namjoon hyung has a boyfriend

jacks: ...

Jinyoung: oh hell no i'm leaving

Youngjae: an explosion is about to happen

JB: bye guys it has been nice knowing you

jacks: He has a WHAT NOW

hey there demons [7]

8:22 pm

Gyeom: after narrowly avoiding death once more, i am here to tell the story
Gyeom: ...fuck why do i always do this
Gyeom: this is the wrong chat again

Jinyoung: tell the story

JB: please do

jacks: i can sense how tense they are lmaooo

bambam: well now you've gone and worried your parents gyeom
bambam: you're gonna have to tell the story now

Gyeom: it's really not as serious as i made it sound

Jinyoung: then you'll have no problem telling us, right?

Gyeom: uh, yeah, right
Gyeom: so i just briefly passed out but it's nothing to worry about! i had everything under control

Youngjae: ...

Gyeom: except during those seconds while i was unconscious, but i mean, i woke up before anything could happen so i would still say i had everything under control

JB: hang on there's a lot to unpack here
JB: WHAT could have happened while you were passed out? like, where did you pass out, was it dangerous?
JB: WHY did you pass out??

Gyeom: uuh

Jinyoung: it shouldn't be that hard to answer

Gyeom: i dunno why i passed out

Mark: you didn't get it checked out? go to the hospital?

Gyeom: i meant that i don't know which reason out of like three different options is the reason why i passed out

jacks: and what were those options then

Gyeom: lack of food, lack of sleep, head problem

Jinyoung: head problem??

JB: ok we'll get back to you about those things because you need to LOOK AFTER YOURSELF
JB: but first, where did you pass out?

Gyeom: ... you're not gonna be happy

bambam: they're not gonna let you avoid the question though

Gyeom: ok i passed out in the street
Gyeom: but there weren't any cars!

Jinyoung: wHAT THE FUCK



Mark: are you home now?
Mark: next time you should stay home when you're suffering from lack of sleep and lack of food

Gyeom: but i can't miss too much school, i have to go out for that!

Jinyoung: no, you don't
Jinyoung: your health comes before your grades and attendance

Gyeom: ok
Gyeom: i'm gonna go take a nap

JB: rest well

Jinyoung: we'll lecture you later though

Gyeom: ...okay :/

Gyeom: how do you do that so easily
Gyeom: i wish i wasn't but i'm really tired

Jinyoung: might i suggest you go to bed?

Gyeom: i can't fall asleep

Jinyoung: okay, but you should try to get some rest before school starts tomorrow
Jinyoung: or maybe you should stay home
Jinyoung: i mean you passed out yesterday and you're clearly not gonna get enough sleep

Gyeom: yeah yeah whatever
Gyeom: do you wanna see what i did?

Jinyoung: sure

Gyeom: okay i'll send a pic in private chat!
Gyeom: and then i'll go to bed

Mark: when did that happen?

JB: ok i'm unobservant but i'm not blind, since when does he have yellow hair?

Gyeom: oh, right!
Gyeom: that's what i did during my midnight crisis last night lol
Gyeom: jinyoung hyung said he really liked it!

Jinyoung: and yeah i did, it looks good on you

Gyeom: thanks ^.^

Youngjae: i'm pretty sure he's jumped off at least a few roofs in his life

Jinyoung: please do not go there

Gyeom: we could get a sled and go down the staircase

bambam: hey wassup i'm bam the meme man

Jinyoung: oh no
Jinyoung: now i have two stupid kids i have to stop from doing dumb things

Gyeom: bai

JB: well shit then

Youngjae: no but they're very creative beings
Youngjae: they might find something else to use as a sled

Jinyoung: ...

JB: i guess i have two kids to find then
JB: goodbye everyone, wish me luck

Jinyoung: good luck!

jacks: luck

JB: ...thank

2:40 pm

jacks: a teacher just stopped me to ask if i knew the two students who tried to go down the stairs on top of a trash can lid (is that what they're called???) yesterday

Mark: oh so that's what they used as a sled

Jinyoung: did the teacher ask you to say something to them or,??

jacks: i said no

JB: what?

jacks: when she asked if i knew those two kids
jacks: i said no

Mark: i would've done the same thing tbh

Jinyoung: ...why are all my kids stupid

Youngjae: well you're the one who raised us

JB: ...

bambam: wow ok that was unusually savage coming from you youngjae hyung

Jinyoung: no, it really wasn't
Jinyoung: his actual savage personality just doesn't make sense because he (for some reason) has gotten himself an angelic image

Mark: true true

jacks: topic change
jacks: namjoon is going back to america tomorrow and he asked if he could meet my friends!
jacks: i said yes

JB: why didn't you ask us first?

jacks: well i'm asking you now
jacks: who wants to meet him??

bambam: memememe

Jinyoung: i don't know if you're saying 'me' or 'meme', but i'm coming to meet namjoon

Mark: does he know about us?

jacks: our special identities?

JB: not here!

jacks: yeah he does
jacks: so is everyone coming?

Mark: yes

JB: i guess i am, yeah

Youngjae: me too

jacks: wonderful!
jacks: yugyeom, do u wanna come too?

Gyeom: oh i don't know

Jinyoung: is it because you still haven't met all of us?
Jinyoung: wait you've met everyone except me

bambam: feeling special hyung?

Jinyoung: shut up brat

Mark: and you wonder why youngjae is a savage

Gyeom: no it's not because of that, i'm just busy

jacks: wait i didn't actually say when we're meeting him

Gyeom: i know but i'm going back to saudi arabia over the weekend
Gyeom: i've already left school for it!

bambam: oh i thought you went to the bathroom

Gyeom: ??
Gyeom: i hugged you and said goodbye really dramatically

bambam: yeah, so??
bambam: i thought you were coming back!

Youngjae: he literally said "see you on monday!"

bambam: yEAH AND

Jinyoung: did you really think bammie has any braincells?

Youngjae: now that you say it...

Gyeom: sorry bam!
Gyeom: i'm not in korea until early in the morning on monday

Mark: wait, doesn't it take a really long time to travel from korea to saudi arabia?
Mark: will you even have any time there or will your whole weekend just be traveling?

Gyeom: i guess it will be, but it's worth it

JB: i hope you have a nice trip gyeom!

Gyeom: thank you!
Gyeom: i hope you all have a great time with namjoon hyung! tell him i said hi!

jacks: okay! bye gyeom!

Gyeom: bye hyungs!

spooky bois [6]

2:49 pm

jacks: i think he can teleport

Mark: i thought we had already established the fact that yugyeom is human

jacks: let me rephrase that
jacks: i think yugyeom will teleport to saudi arabia and back
jacks: maybe he knows a person who can do that, even if he himself is human

Jinyoung: i mean, i looked it up and the fastest flights i could find took 12 hours

JB: he could go by plane but it seems like a waste of time and money if he's only going to be there for about a day and a half

Mark: hm, that's true

Youngjae: we've also already established the fact that we're not gonna find out by discussing it behind his back

jacks: that's true
jacks: so i think we should ask him

bambam: NO
bambam: i'm not risking the only normal friendship i've had in all of highschool just because you're all curious about him!

Jinyoung: i haven't actually met the guy, but i agree with bambam on this

JB: ...
JB: anyone else?

Youngjae: i think we should ask
Youngjae: i mean, the worst that could happen is that he's really confused and we have to play it off as a joke

Mark: i'm neutral

JB: so am i
JB: which means that we're currently 2-2, and will not be asking him

jacks: but have you seen all the clues he's left??

Jinyoung: that's irrelevant
Jinyoung: give it some more time, jackson
Jinyoung: there's no reason to corner him with information about something that might not be more than us reading into things too much

jacks: ...okay

bambam: great
bambam: now i'm going to study
bambam: don't bother texting me if it's for another stupid reason like this one

ateez [9]

3:01 pm

Gyeom: i have arrived! i am back! i am here!

HongJoong: i know
HongJoong: i am standing right next to you

wooyoung: just because you got to be his personal export doesn't mean the rest of us don't want updates!

Yeosang: it's escort, not export

wooyoung: oh sorry dad

Yeosang: i'm not your dad
Yeosang: your dad is a bitch

Gyeom: ...
Gyeom: did he just call an angel a bitch??

Yeosang: sure did

wooyoung: for a human, u sure have a lot of confidence

Yeosang: for an angel, u sure are dumb

HongJoong: guys stop it
HongJoong: me and gyeom have arrived and we're heading toward the dorm rooms now

san: it's "yugyeom and i"

HongJoong: ...

Yeosang: hongjoong hyung i apologize on behalf of these little shits
Yeosang: just because they're technically angels doesn't make them saints
Yeosang: quite the opposite, actually

san: okay stop dissing me and wooyoung we did nothing

Gyeom: guys!

wooyoung: sorry gyeom hyung
wooyoung: we're just so excited to see you again!

Gyeom: ...and you deal with your excitement by dissing each other??

san: i mean...

wooyoung: yeah i guess that's accurate

Gyeom: lmao
Gyeom: can't say i'm surprised
Gyeom: but i'm excited to see you too ^.^

spooky bois [6]

4:02 pm

JB: okay, chan told me more about the coven that was being attacked by a demon for seemingly no reason
JB: their coven is named ateez and some of their members are friends with some members from chan's coven

bambam: knew that already

Jinyoung: stop interrupting

JB: ateez only has 3 supernatural creatures but of you count their human friends, ateez have 8 people
JB: they had a ninth member who left a month ago for some reason that chan doesn't know of
JB: and basically it's all really complicated but the demon seemed to be following the ninth member so he's the only one in actual danger right now

Youngjae: why aren't stray kids doing anything about it?
Youngjae: i mean i get why ateez might not do anything since there's only 3 of them, but stray kids has 9 supernatural creatures

JB: mainly because chan doesn't know much about the situation
JB: ateez isn't sharing any more information about the member that left, so chan can't do anything
JB: and neither can we
JB: but at least no one has to worry about a demon going on a rampage against the covens without reason!

Mark: this sounds weird

jacks: did chan really bring this up out of nowhere?

bambam: kind of?
bambam: i mean he said he was worried for stray kids, but also for their friends in ateez so it wasn't out of nowhere
bambam: he was worried

JB: guys, this doesn't involve us
JB: unless chan asks us for help with helping their friends, then we shouldn't be worrying
JB: a lot of bad things are happening in the world without us even knowing about it, and sadly, there's nothing we can do about that

jacks: yeah, but now that we know about this, i'm worried about that ninth member

Mark: oh

bambam: what hyung?

Mark: ...nothing
Mark: or maybe it's something
Mark: but it's too early to say

JB: uh, okay, let us know if it's something we need to know
JB: otherwise i guess we're done here

Jinyoung: yeah

bangtan + traitor maknae [8]

8:43 pm

Gyeom: hello hyungs!

yoongi: why are you friends with a demon

Namjoon: hyung! let the boy tell us himself
Namjoon: that's the reason he texted us in the first place!

yoongi: i know that but i thought we could save time

junglekook: wow i love my two oracle hyungs

Namjoon: I sense sarcasm

junglekook: you are correct

Gyeom: ...
Gyeom: ok so i came here to tell you that i have made friends in korea
Gyeom: but it seems my life update is not needed here

Namjoon: No, tell us!

yoongi: i mean me and namjoon already know some stuff because you wouldn't tell us so we had to look..

Gyeom: i just haven't had time hyung!

yoongi: i'm joking, it's fine

junglekook: tell us about your new friends gyeom ^_^

Namjoon: I mean, I've met them all already, but feel free to tell the others

Gyeom: also yoongi hyung why did you ask why i'm friends with a demon
Gyeom: there's literally a demon in this group

jimin: yeah but it's different with demons you don't know

junglekook: says the demon himself

jimin: exactly, i should know
jimin: there's like a 50% risk of the demon being an absolute piece of shit

Gyeom: well i don't think this one is
Gyeom: his name is bambam and he's actually been really nice to me!

jimin: careful
jimin: sometimes they pretend to be nice to lure you in before attacking

Gyeom: ?? jimin hyung, you're a demon

junglekook: exactly, so why are u talking as if they're a different species???

jimin: i know my demons
jimin: there's a reason i don't have any other demon friends

junglekook: oh wow, the demon solidarity is real lmao

jimin: you won't be laughing when you end up with a literal knife in your back

yoongi: okay jimin, chill out a little
yoongi: that's not going to happen here
yoongi: bambam barely knows about his own kind

Namjoon: I can testify to that

Gyeom: hyungs, did you look into him ???

yoongi: only slightly

Namjoon: just to check in case he was a bad demon!

junglekook: overprotective much?

Namjoon: I wouldn't say we were being overprotective, given yugyeom's background

Gyeom: ok let's not bring that up

Namjoon: but it's very relevant

Gyeom: no it's not
Gyeom: demons? never heard of em
Gyeom: bambam is the first one i've ever encountered

yoongi: ...sure kid, let's pretend

Namjoon: you may not want to talk about it, but you can't pretend it never happened

Gyeom: i'm not pretending that
Gyeom: i'm just trying to avoid this conversation
Gyeom: am i succeeding??

junglekook: lmaooo
junglekook: sure, we'll pretend you were real subtle about it
junglekook: consider this conversation avoided

Gyeom: yesss!

Namjoon: okay, fine
Namjoon: text us with an update within this next week or I will have to attack jackson with questions that you will not like

junglekook: the dad strikes again!

Gyeom: lol
Gyeom: thanks everyone

junglekook: no probs

yoongi: we did nothing but ok

hey there demons [7]

11:38 am

bambam: guys, fellow human-like beings that grace this earth with their presence
bambam: i call upon you in a time of need

Mark: the fuck u want now

bambam: rude!
bambam: i want lunch
bambam: you guys
bambam: with lunch

jacks: tf???

Youngjae: he wants to have lunch with all of us

JB: oh

Mark: thanks for translating, youngjae

Youngjae: no problem

bambam: yus
bambam: lunch i want want
bambam: aishhhh you guys
bambam: u want??????

jacks: lol what's the big deal?

Mark: sure, we'll have lunch together

Youngjae: i think the problem is that we've never all had lunch together

JB: ???
JB: ooooh wait, i get it

Mark: he means us five + yugyeom

jacks: or we could escape school and go have lunch with jinyoung too at some other place

bambam: mcdonalds

JB: that's a wonderful suggestion
JB: two problems: yugyeom hasn't met all of us at the same time

jacks: the second problem?

JB: Jinyoung

jacks: ah okay

Jinyoung: excuse me????

Youngjae: hyung, be honest
Youngjae: do u really want us to escape school just to have lunch?

Jinyoung: sure
Jinyoung: i have no problem with it

jacks: wait really???

Jinyoung: really

bambam: kay then i guess we have a plan

Jinyoung: ??
Jinyoung: have you asked everyone involved if they want to join?

bambam: yes i have?

Youngjae: ...

Gyeom: yeah i wanna have lunch with you guys if it's not a problem ^.^

bambam: see?
bambam: everyone already said yes

Mark: sike

Youngjae: we really didn't but ok

bambam: then it's decided!
bambam: we meet by the closest mcdonalds as soon as class ends!

jacks: noice

JB: i'll see u all there

Jinyoung: and remember to not cross the street without looking both ways first!

bambam: i feel personally targeted by that reminder

Jinyoung: good
Jinyoung: you should


Yugyeom wouldn't say he's scared of meeting the entire group at the same time, but maybe he's a little nervous. He hasn't had to make friends in over a year. The last people he befriended had been the members of Ateez, and even then, it had been because they were going to be living and training together for so long.

This time, the only reason Yugyeom is getting to know Bambam's friend group is because they all seem genuinely interested in befriending him. Of course, he already knows exactly what all of them are, but they don't know about him.

Yugyeom moves his eyes to the left, as if guided by some foreboding instinct, and they immediately land on a face he recognizes from the photos that Bambam has showed him. It's Park Jinyoung, the group's vampire, making his way through the light crowd on the street.

Honestly, he's not as pale as Yugyeom expected him to be, but maybe that's just because he hasn't actually had many vampire friends before, so he doesn't know what to expect.

Jinyoung seems to recognize him, as well, because the older smiles and raises a hand as he walks in Yugyeom's direction. The younger is only given a few short moments to prepare himself before the vampire reaches him, trying to take some calming breaths while pocketing his phone again.

"Hi, Yugyeom!" Jinyoung greets as soon as he's close enough to be heard. He doesn't look nervous at all.

"Hey hyung!" Yugyeom returns the greeting while trying not to show how terrifying he thinks it is to meet new people.

"You haven't been waiting too long, right?" the older asks, a slight hint of concern showing on his otherwise calm face. Yugyeom shakes his head with a small smile. It's almost cute to him that Jinyoung manages to care about someone he barely even knows, and suddenly it makes a lot of sense why the others would call Jinyoung the mom of the group. He clearly has the fitting traits.

"I thought we could go inside and wait for the rest", Jinyoung suggests, and Yugyeom responds with another nod.

As they walk, Jinyoung asks him about his classes and how he's been adjusting to being back in Korea, the pair of them making some light conversation while waiting for everyone else. It's not even half as awkward as Yugyeom had thought it could be. To be honest, it's pretty nice. Jinyoung is nice.

It doesn't take a lot of time for the others to arrive. Bambam and Jackson are both looking slightly disheveled, as if they have run all the way here.

"We raced", Jackson explains in between two panting breaths, gesturing weakly between himself and the younger boy. It's not clear who won, but it does explain their appearances.

Yugyeom is kind of freaking out right now. It had only been early this morning that he returned to Korea, so his mind isn't exactly working at full capacity, being too tired to think properly, but maybe that's good in this situation. At least he won't overthink stuff and end up being super awkward.

Him and Jinyoung have already ordered, so Yugyeom expects the new arrivals to go do the same, but Bambam casts a quick glance around before speaking up.

"I know what everyone wants so you can go grab a table."

No one objects, so Yugyeom just goes along with it as they all head over toward an empty table big enough to fit them all. Ahead of him, Jackson and Youngjae are arguing about how you're supposed to measure the results from his and Bambam's running contest rather loudly. Jaebum and Mark are speaking calmly behind the arguing pair, and Jinyoung is walking next to Yugyeom.

Not really having anything to say, Yugyeom glances at his phone screen and sees two new notifications from Jungkook.

junglekook -> Gyeom [private chat]

12:13 pm

junglekook: oh btw namjoon hyung told me youre meeting got6 for the first tiem today

Gyeom: thanks yes i am

junglekook: lmao gotta love those oracle hyungs
junglekook: also namjoon hyung says that i should tell u "honey you've got a big storm coming"

Gyeom: wait what, what does that even mean

junglekook: idk
junglekook: he says you should stay away from danger

Gyeom: don't i always?

junglekook: more like do you ever ??

Gyeom: yah u rite


"Yugyeom", Jaebum says in a rather serious tone, and the younger instantly looks away from his screen, toward the coven's leader. His eyes are just as serious as his tone when he stares at Yugyeom.

The words that follow aren't as serious, though.

"If the Earth was flat, would the sun just spin in circles above it, or would it move in a more spiral-like shape?" he asks.

Yugyeom definitely snorts at that, but he still ponders the question to give a serious answer. He notices that Mark and Youngjae are watching him as well, waiting for what the younger will say, so Yugyeom supposed that this is what they have been discussing.

"Well, it has to move up and down too, right? It can't just spin around. Then we wouldn't have different seasons", he replies.

By now, Jackson has also caught on to the topic at hand, and adds his own opinion to the discussion. Youngjae apparently has a very detailed plan about how the sun would have to move for it to work with seasons and timezones, even though Mark and Jaebum don't appear to agree with him.

While they talk, Yugyeom looks over at Jinyoung, expecting him to look exasperated for having to deal with this mess, but he seems just as interested in the conversation as everyone else. When he feels Yugyeom's eyes on him, he turns his head just slightly and sends a small smile his way.

"What if the sun was like a lamp and could just turn on and off?" he suggest, leaning forward over the table to join the discussion.

How Yugyeom ends up discussing the logistics of a flat Earth with six supernatural crackheads fifteen minutes after his class was supposed to begin, he wouldn't be able to tell you.

At least he's happy to be there.

And, maybe missing class was worth it.

(it was definitely worth it).

Gyeom -> junglekook [private chat]

10:33 pm

Gyeom: jungkook i'm scared

junglekook: fear is a natural reaction meant to warn you for danger, fear is meant to keep you alive, even though past experiences may have taught you to fear things that aren't actually dangerous and might be something you want to overcome

Gyeom: the fuck ??

junglekook: sorry
junglekook: hobi hyung told me that today and i wanted to spread my knowledge

Gyeom: oh ok.., thanks i guess?

junglekook: lmao
junglekook: but why are you scared yugs?

Gyeom: i think i'm getting attached

junglekook: okay, but why is that a bad thing?

Gyeom: you know why it's a bad thing kook

junglekook: no, i really don't

Gyeom: cause i can never stay! i'm just gonna get attached and then i'll have to run again
Gyeom: or, i'll get attached and then they find out the truth about me being a fucked up mess and they'll hate me
Gyeom: and i'm scared because bambam is a demon and every time i go near him, i'm reminded of what happened last time i got close with a demon even though it literally has nothing to do with him
Gyeom: and they're all so nice to me but they don't even know what i am!
Gyeom: as soon as they find out, they won't be as nice, no one ever is

junglekook: gyeom, me and the rest of bangtan found out what you were and none of us ran away or started treating you differently
junglekook: i mean, you can't help what you're born as and we understand that

Gyeom: what if they don't think the same way

junglekook: didn't you just say that bambam is a demon?
junglekook: they're all supernatural creatures, i think they understand better than anyone that you can't control what you are

Gyeom: i guess

junglekook: and about bambam being a demon,
junglekook: yeah, i get why that freaks you out and the fact that you can sense his demon-ness every time you go near him isn't really something you can control
junglekook: i mean, that's just part of your powers

Gyeom: yeah

junglekook: and it's not your fault that demons make you freak out, i mean that's just how trauma works
junglekook: don't blame yourself for not being over something that affected you so badly

Gyeom: but bambam had nothing to do with that!

junglekook: i know, and one day bambam's demonic aura won't scare you like it does now, but it's okay that it does right now, considering your past
junglekook: stop blaming yourself, i can clearly see that you know that it has nothing to do with bambam, but you can't control your reactions to him

Gyeom: yeah, okay, i guess that's true

junglekook: hell yeah it is, i'm a fucking genius

Gyeom: you're starting to sound like hyung

junglekook: jin hyung? or yoongi hyung?

Gyeom: lol

junglekook: no seriously which one gyeom???

Gyeom: sorry i gotta go
Gyeom: gotta go tell my friends that i had a nice time with them today!

junglekook: yes!! go conquer your fears!!

Gyeom: i'm not afraid of talking to them though

junglekook: stop criticizing me

Gyeom: lmao okay
Gyeom: and thanks for everything you said

junglekook: no problem

Gyeom: yes problem
Gyeom: it was a problem but you helped me come down from it, so thank you!

junglekook: okay, yeah, you're welcome

Gyeom: bye kook :)

junglekook: bye gyeom
junglekook: now go talk to your friends!

hey there demons [7]

Gyeom: i had fun today everyone, thanks for letting me come!

jacks: omg it was really fun that you came

Youngjae: yes!

Jinyoung: i hope we didn't overwhelm you,.. some of us can be a little much at times

Gyeom: oh no, you were fine
Gyeom: i had a great time :)

bambam: does this mean you'll have lunch with us at school too now??

Jinyoung: chill out child

Gyeom: sure, if you want me to ^.^

bambam: yes we do

Youngjae: you're very welcome to join us any time

Mark: it's weird
Mark: it feels like you've been our friend for much longer, even though we're just getting to know you

jacks: you sure that's not your own fault hyung?

Mark: shut up

Gyeom: lol why would it be his fault?

jacks: cause he can sense people's auras!

bambam: the fuck

Gyeom: are you saying he's like a wizard? lol

jacks: not really, it's just like a gut feeling that decides if he liked people or not

Gyeom: oh, cool

Mark: ...

jacks: nice! i guess i'll see u at lunch tomorrow then yugyeom!

Gyeom: yeah okay, bye hyungs!

bambam: bye yugs :))

Gyeom: bye bambam!

11:10 pm

Mark: jackson, wtf was that
Mark: are you trying to expose me???

jacks: no! i was just trying to see his reaction!

Jinyoung: and did you get any information from that little experiment?


Jinyoung: then don't do it again

jacks: i won't!
jacks: and it's not like i exposed us or anything

bambam: well...

Youngjae: if he knows about the supernatural, then he definitely knows what mark hyung is now

jacks: ...oops?

Mark: i take it none of you noticed what he was doing then?

Jinyoung: what?

jacks: was yugyeom doing something??

Mark: yea

bambam: what
bambam: hyung, he wasn't doing anything weird

Jinyoung: what did he do?

Mark: doesn't matter
Mark: i'll tell u if it does

jacks: sigh

Youngjae: okay hyung, we trust you

Jinyoung: but what happened? is there something off about yugyeom?

Mark: no, i haven't seen anything you need to worry about

bambam: then why these ominous comments?

Mark: i'll tell you if there's anything else
Mark: bye

jacks: but what is going on

Youngjae: mark hyung doesn't stick around after saying bye

Jinyoung: guys, trust hyung's judgment
Jinyoung: he said that nothing is off about yugyeom and that we don't have to worry
Jinyoung: i trust him to tell us if he realizes anything

jacks: i do too

bambam: yeah, okay
bambam: but i still find it weird how it seems like mark hyung always knows something we don't

Youngjae: that's probably cause he does

jacks: truth

Jinyoung: go to bed

bambam: okay mom

Youngjae: goodnight ^-^

jacks: bye peeps

bambam: hyung, we know that's not the only reason

Youngjae: guys don't press him
Youngjae: he'll tell us if he wants to

Mark: okay fine, but that's not what this is about
Mark: i promise i'll tell you what this trip is for once i come back

Jinyoung: are you sure that's the best option?
Jinyoung: i'm not asking to sound like i'm doubting you, i'm genuinely wondering

Mark: i think so

Jinyoung: then i accept it

Youngjae: we won't bother you with any more questions then

Mark: thanks everyone

hey there demons [7]

7:23 am

bambam: mark hyung is now off to america!

Gyeom: oh is he visiting his family?

bambam: nah just some friends, he'll be back soon

jacks: so what are we doing while he's gone guys?

Youngjae: crying

bambam: drama queen

JB: says the drama queen himself

Gyeom: wait why are you crying??

Youngjae: cause mark hyung is gone

Jinyoung: he's coming back though

Youngjae: yeah i guess..

jacks: great
jacks: so does anyone have any plans or what?

Gyeom: one of my friends is actually visiting from america!

JB: wait really

jacks: is it one of the ones from namjoon's friend group?

Gyeom: yeah

JB: oh, that's fun!

jacks: truly..

spooky bois [6]

7:38 am

jacks: uuh hey not to be that person but remember what we said about namjoon's friends being supernatural?

bambam: fuckin get over it

Jinyoung: Be nice.

JB: if we ignore bambam
JB: there's clearly something up with yugyeom, and i would not be surprised to hear that he knows about the supernatural
JB: but mark hyung said that yugyeom is human, and we have to trust that

Youngjae: we could still ask yugyeom though

jacks: or we could tell him about ourselves
jacks: no one's saying that we have to force him to tell us anything he doesn't want to

Youngjae: that's actually a good point

Jinyoung: that we turn the situation around? tell him the truth about ourselves instead of asking for the truth about him?

jacks: exactly!

bambam: hyung left like an hour ago and we're already spiraling

jacks: we're not spiraling, just discussing

Jinyoung: that's right, but bambam is also right in that we shouldn't do anything without mark here

bambam: thank you

jacks: i'll gladly just tell yugyeom that i'm a werewolf
jacks: you guys don't have to do it with me

JB: okay everyone, take a step back
JB: go to school
JB: we'll talk later, okay?

bambam: no we won't

Youngjae: sure

jacks: yeah okay

Jinyoung: ...
Jinyoung: i can already tell this is gonna be a mess

Chapter Text

spooky bois

7:30 pm

jacks: guys, i really think we should tell yugyeom what we are

bambam: ..not this bullshit again

Youngjae: we should at least wait til mark hyung comes back to discuss this

jacks: why would we???
jacks: this is between us and yugyeom

Youngjae: yes
Youngjae: US as in ALL OF US, and that includes mark hyung

jacks: we can't wait until he comes back!
jacks: besides, hyung has been keeping stuff from us

Jinyoung: such as?

jacks: i shouldn't even have to explain, you all know it
jacks: he's been so secretive and mysterious pretty much since he met yugyeom

JB: are you implying what i think you're implying?

bambam: fuck you jackson

jacks: where the hell did that come from??

bambam: you're trying to say that mark hyung is covering up yugyeom's secret identity!
bambam: i was fuckin there when they met and mark hyung very honestly said that he couldn't pick up on anything supernatural from gyeom

jacks: that doesn't mean shit!

Youngjae: are you calling mark hyung a liar?

jacks: as if all of us haven't lied a few times
jacks: but no, i'm just saying that there's a possibility he saw something he didn't like in yugyeom and decided not to tell us

Youngjae: why are you being so mean?

jacks: i'm not trying to be mean! i'm just trying to make you see where i'm coming from!

Youngjae: well it seems like you're attacking both mark hyung and yugyeom

jacks: oh, why don't you go cry to your boyfriend, go hug a tree or whatever

Youngjae: ...fuck you jackson

Youngjae has left spooky bois

Jinyoung: Jackson, that was unnecessary.

jacks: i didn't mean to make him leave

bambam: really? could've fooled me

jacks: i'm trying to make you see what's going on here!
jacks: but you refuse to see that mark hyung knows something we don't, and yugyeom isn't as pure as he seems

bambam: jackson, What the fuck ?????
bambam: yugyeom has been nothing but kind to everyone since we met him!

jacks: that's not what i meant!

bambam: you just said he's not as pure as we think! what else could you mean???

JB: Can you both please stop?

jacks: fuckin hell, i'm not trying to call mark a liar or say that yugyeom is rude
jacks: i'm just saying that i'm no longer content with just sitting back while weird shit happens and no one does anything about it!

Jinyoung: what weird shit are you talking about?

jacks: i dunno, everything!
jacks: ateez being attacked by a demon, yugyeom and his past, mark hyung never telling us what he's thinking, bangtan and yugyeom knowing each other
jacks: there's a lot of unexplained shit around yugyeom

Jinyoung: hang on

JB: what?

Jinyoung: when were ateez being attacked by a demon?

JB: like a month ago, maybe more

bambam: hyung what is this about? ateez have nothing to do with this
bambam: this is about all of you being willing to risk everything just because you're curious about yugyeom!

JB: bammie, no, that's not it

Jinyoung: we're not trying to damage your relationship with him

bambam: stop acting like you actually give a fuck about my friendship with gyeom
bambam: i'm not blind, i get that something's up with him but it's none of our business!
bambam: i really thought you guys weren't the type of people to force others to expose themselves
bambam: guess i was wrong to assume

bambam has left spooky bois

jacks: that's not even fucking true!

Jinyoung: yelling won't solve anything

JB: we need to have this discussion in person

jacks: why???
jacks: this shouldn't even have to be a discussion

Jinyoung: uh, yes it should. we need to talk about it

jacks: if i wanna tell him about myself, that has nothing to do with you!

Jinyoung: it does though
Jinyoung: we live together, and if you tell yugyeom you're a werewolf that would put us in a position where we either do the same or lie to him about it

Jinyoung: and some of us don't wanna lie

jacks: oh?

JB: Jackson, don't.

jacks: i won't
jacks: i just find it weird how he says he doesn't want to lie, yet it seems that's all he ever does

Jinyoung: what the fuck is that supposed to mean?

jacks: "oh i'm just not tired"
jacks: "i just couldn't fall asleep"
jacks: "my family is rich, it's definitely not that i've been working and earning money for about 80 years"

Jinyoung: And what the fuck was I supposed to say?
Jinyoung: "OH I'm nocturnal and need a lot less sleep than normal humans, that's why I'm always awake"
Jinyoung: "I was born in 1907 so I've been earning money for almost a century, hence my economical status"

jacks: no, but maybe don't lie?

Jinyoung: Fuck off

JB: Both of you, stop. This is doing nothing

jacks: why is everyone so against just talking to yugyeom??

JB: I'm not, I'm literally not

jacks: oh? cause earlier you said you were neutral

Jinyoung: that was me

JB: I said I was against it, but not anymore
JB: there's too much stuff that doesn't add up

jacks: then why the fuck do you just let bambam play the victim?

JB: this isn't about whether or not we should tell yugyeom anymore

jacks: yes it fuckin is

JB: It's not

jacks: i can't
jacks: sorry

jacks has left spooky bois

Jinyoung: Jaebum, please

JB: i'm gonna say something i regret
JB: i'm sorry

JB has left spooky bois

Jinyoung: ...
Jinyoung: mark please text me when you see this

Chapter Text

Mark -> Jinyoung [private chat]

4:05 am

Mark: i can't help but think that the death of our spooky bois group is a sign that we probably shouldn't have another chat behind yugyeom's back
Mark: when we're talking about him, he should be included in the discussion

Jinyoung: i agree with you, but i don't think everyone else does

Mark: i know and that's what frustrates me
Mark: i saw what you all wrote before everyone left

Jinyoung: they probably didn't mean anything by it so i hope you weren't offended..?

Mark: i mean
Mark: jackson was right

Jinyoung: WHat??"

Mark: PARTLY, he was partly right

Jinyoung: you're gonna have to explain yourself some more unless you want everyone to freak out at you

Mark: i know, but i'd rather do it with everyone present
Mark: basically, i have been keeping stuff from you
Mark: i didn't pick up on anything supernatural from yugyeom when i met him, that's the truth
Mark: i haven't lied to any of you
Mark: the only thing is that i haven't been completely honest about what i think i've figured out about him

Jinyoung: ...ookay?

Mark: but i think i should tell you in person instead of through a group chat

Jinyoung: good luck trying to get jackson and bambam in the same room

Mark: maybe i don't have to
Mark: i mean, if i say that it's about yugyeom, they'll probably both show up voluntarily

Jinyoung: ...whatever floats your boat

Mark: ...
Mark: that's such an old person thing to say

Jinyoung: thanks i try my best

Mark: bye

hey there demons [7]

8:39 am

Mark: so this chat has been dead for like two days now
Mark: and since yugyeom is currently out with a friend i thought i'd take the opportunity to only talk to the six of you

JB: how do you know that?

Mark: i went to america to see bangtan, and you all know yoongi is an oracle, so he told me when would be the best time to text

jacks: oh? now you can be honest?

Mark: you have full rights to be upset, but please don't call me names

jacks: ...i'm sorry hyung

Mark: thanks
Mark: i'm coming back soon, i'll probably teleport back in a few hours, and i think we should all meet

bambam: no

Mark: we need to talk and i have a lot of stuff to tell you about yugyeom

bambam: why is everyone so obsessed with knowing everything about him??
bambam: if he wanted us to know, he would have told us

Mark: i agree with you and i'm sorry that i have to do this, but i really wasn't trying to figure it out
Mark: i went to america to ask bangtan if i was right in my assumptions about yugyeom
Mark: which i was

Jinyoung: what assumptions?

Mark: well, he left a lot of clues
Mark: i shouldn't be telling you all of it through a group chat
Mark: i haven't been lying to you, but i also haven't been telling the truth, but i will now

jacks: i'll be there hyung

bambam: what don't you guys understand about privacy??

Mark: bambam, i'm on your side in this
Mark: the only reason i figured anything out is because i pay a lot of attention
Mark: i swear i'm not doing this to expose him, or doing it just because i'm curious
Mark: i genuinely think he would benefit from telling us the truth

bambam: This is exactly what I don't want!

Mark: BUT,
Mark: i don't think we should ask him to tell us anything
Mark: i want to meet all of you to tell you what i know, which is far from everything
Mark: there are a lot of things we can only find out from yugyeom himself
Mark: and right now, i'm not saying ANYTHING about talking to yugyeom about this
Mark: okay?

jacks: i've already said i'm coming

JB: i will, too

Jinyoung: me as well

bambam: i'm upset
bambam: this feels wrong
bambam: but i guess i'll come
bambam: and i'll try to act civilized

Mark: thank you
Mark: youngjae? you haven't said anything

JB: he's asleep on my bed

Mark: oh

JB: yeah, cause someone was fuckin rude to him

jacks: i didn't mean it...

Jinyoung: everyone, we'll solve this later
Jinyoung: it's between youngjae and jackson so everyone else should refrain from saying anything
Jinyoung: and i just want to say that i get why everyone is acting the way they are right now
Jinyoung: i mean, telling someone about your supernatural identity is something we all have negative experiences with

JB: true

Jinyoung: mark was disowned by his parents when he started showing signs of magic
Jinyoung: jackson had no friends for YEARS after telling his last friendgroup about it
Jinyoung: which i guess is why you want to do it as soon as possible with yugyeom now?

jacks: yes
jacks: i just want to get it over with and see how he reacts

Jinyoung: understandable
Jinyoung: and i guess bambam doesn't want to tell yugyeom at all? probably because some people are very misinformed about demons

bambam: i mean, it's complicated
bambam: i don't really want to tell yugyeom but i understand that it's the only option if i actually want to be close with him

Jinyoung: I know, and it's okay. You don't have to think it's easy to tell him. The important thing is that you're willing to listen to us when we discuss it, and actually take in our points

bambam: which i haven't really been doing..

Jinyoung: Yes, but we've all done a lot of wrong and said some things we shouldn't have
Jinyoung: Everyone makes mistakes. As long as we're willing to listen and apologize, I think we'll be fine

JB: ...

jacks: ...

bambam: ...

Mark: huh
Mark: i think jinyoung just borrowed every braincell this group has

jacks: yeah but that's not a lot

bambam: true lmao, we have like four braincells

Jinyoung: ...
Jinyoung: does this mean you're all willing to talk it out?

JB: Yes

jacks: yup!

bambam: i am

Mark: me too

Jinyoung: great
Jinyoung: now we should spam the chat to make sure yugyeom doesn't see this

JB: oh yeah

Gyeom: uuuuh
Gyeom: hey guys
Gyeom: …
Gyeom: i think i just saw something i wasn't supposed to

JB: …

Jinyoung: …

jacks: …

bambam: …

Mark: …

Youngjae: holy hell that was a fucking plot twist

Chapter Text

hey there demons [7]

9:13 am

JB: yugyeom!

Jinyoung: have you been here the whole time?

Gyeom: uhm, no
Gyeom: but i kinda saw everything you sent

bambam: omg

jacks: well... now we don't really have a choice
jacks: we might as well say it

bambam: please no

Mark: how about we come back to this conversation in a few hours once we've discussed it or smth

Jinyoung: yes good idea

JB: i'm so sorry yugyeom

Gyeom: oh
Gyeom: yeah but it's not a big deal or anything
Gyeom: i mean i already knew about you guys

Youngjae: you what???

jacks: you knew what?

Gyeom: yeah!
Gyeom: i already know what you're thinking about telling me

JB: ...what do you think we're going to tell you?

Gyeom: that mark hyung is a warlock, jb hyung is a shapeshifter, jinyoung hyung is a vampire, jackson hyung is a werewolf, youngjae a faery and bambam a demon

Youngjae: ...

Mark: where did you get this from?

JB: ohmygod did you see the chat? were we that careless??

Gyeom: no! i realized when i met you in real life!

Jinyoung: but wait
Jinyoung: doesn't that mean..

Mark: hang on, there's something i realized about you yugyeom

Gyeom: uuh

Mark: which is partly what we were fighting about

Gyeom: mkay

Mark: you were a member of the dance group ateez and you lived with them in saudi arabia for almost a year
Mark: then they started getting attacked by a demon about a month ago, which is when you left to come live here in korea
Mark: then the demon stopped attacking them, since the demon was only after you and not the other members
Mark: am i right?

jacks: holy shit!

JB: did you know

Jinyoung: yeah that makes sense

Gyeom: yeah hyung you're right

bambam: wait-,, what-

Youngjae: this is weird

bambam: why would a demon be after you gyeom?
bambam: and are you even human?
bambam: did you know that three of the ateez members are supernatural???

Gyeom: of course i knew that
Gyeom: and they know a lot about me, as well

jacks: oh?

Gyeom: yeah
Gyeom: bangtan also knows a lot about me

Youngjae: so you were friends with bts in america, plus you know that they're a coven?

Gyeom: yeah, i actually used to be a part of their coven before i had to leave for saudi arabia

bambam: holy frick wHAT???

jacks: you were in bts????

Gyeom: yes
Gyeom: that is what i just said

Jinyoung: but why did you have to leave for saudi arabia?
Jinyoung: like, was it a choice or not?

JB: and about that demon that was attacking you...

Gyeom: okay chill i think i have to tell you a lot more than i actually want to
Gyeom: not that i don't trust you! but because i'm scared!

bambam: ...i was scared too

Gyeom: not to sound rude but if i tell you the truth, you're all in danger as long as i'm near you

JB: Why?

Jinyoung: okay, i think you're gonna have to tell us a little more than that
Jinyoung: what are you?

Gyeom: tel u latre

jacks: wow that spelling
jacks:'s almost like you're not paying attention to what you're typing

Youngjae: something's up

JB: mark, did you ever figure out what yugyeom is?

Mark: no

Youngjae: yugyeom?

Gyeom: ysh

bambam: okay seriously
bambam: where are you rn?

Gyeom: cant

jacks: are you drunk?

Jinyoung: seems unlikely

JB: i think something's happening

Mark: i know something's happening
Mark: yugyeom, are you at home?

Gyeom: nno
Gyeom: okay i can stop now

Jinyoung: stop what?

Gyeom: sorry i was running and couldn't really look too much at my screen
Gyeom: but i've stopped now!

JB: Why were you running?

Youngjae: i feel like this conversation just gets weirder and weirder

Gyeom: i saw a ginger cat with a necklace and knew i had to run

Youngjae: case in point ^^

Gyeom: i think i lost the cat, so i'm fine now
Gyeom: i just gotta go make a call

jacks: hang on just a second
jacks: wtf is going on

Jinyoung: yeah, i think we're all wondering that

bambam: now that you know what we are, shouldn't you tell us about yourself?

Gyeom: i will!

JB: we have a lot of questions

Youngjae: i think the main one is "what are you"?

Gyeom: uuuh

JB: i mean you know about us now
JB: so you don't have to be worried about us accepting you, cause you already know that we will

Gyeom: actually i don't know that

jacks: would be kinda hypocritical if we didn't

Gyeom: not really
Gyeom: i mean i wouldn't blame you if you didn't
Gyeom: it's not the kind of supernatural that you're used to

Mark: ...

Gyeom: but i gotta go now bye!

bambam: wait!

jacks: i think he already left

bambam: ...fuck

jacks -> Namjoon [private chat]

9:30 am

jacks: namjoon-ah
jacks: what is yugyeom?

Namjoon: Why are you asking me this? Ask him instead

jacks: u see, i would, but he's not responding
jacks: something's going on

Namjoon: Wait what do you mean

jacks: he said something about running from a cat with a necklace?? idk

Namjoon: Are you serious right now??
Namjoon: About the cat??

jacks: uh yeah
jacks: but i don't get it
jacks: what's the big deal?

Namjoon: Fuck.

jacks: namjoon?
jacks: joon?
jacks: ...

bangtan + traitor maknae [8]

9:33 am

Namjoon: Yugyeom, what's going on?

junglekook: wait what

jimin: why would there be anything going on?

Namjoon: You all know about the ginger cat with a necklace
Namjoon: apparently yugyeom has seen it recently

junglekook: holy shit

KingSeokJin: does he need our help?

Namjoon: I don't know
Namjoon: as you may be able to see, he has not responded to my question

junglekook: then how do you know about the ginger cat?

Namjoon: Jackson told me

junglekook: but he hasn't seen his dad yet, right? only the ginger cat?

Namjoon: If he had seen his dad, he would be in big trouble

junglekook: but
junglekook: he's not responding
junglekook: so how do we know he's not in big trouble rn?

Namjoon: ...

yoongi: no offense but you're all dumb

KingSeokJin: ex-fuckin-scuse me???

yoongi: chill out i wasn't talking to you
yoongi: namjoon-ah, you're an oracle
yoongi: you have powers

Namjoon: oh
Namjoon: right

yoongi: but you don't have to bother checking in with yugyeom rn cause i've already done it

junglekook: wow look at yoongi hyung, using all seven of our braincells

yoongi: well someone had to

Namjoon: but is he okay?
Namjoon: Yugyeom, i mean

yoongi: i couldn't get a clear view
yoongi: the future's a lot more uncertain than it would be if he was completely safe
yoongi: but at least he's not in immediate danger

junglekook: cool

Namjoon: what about the ginger cat then?
Namjoon: we all know that the ginger cat is a sign that his dad is coming

yoongi: yeah i know

KingSeokJin: this conversation, a summary:
KingSeokJin: his dad is coming but isn't there yet, so yugyeom has only seen the ginger cat
KingSeokJin: he's not in danger until his dad actually gets there
KingSeokJin: the only thing the ginger cat can do is inform yugyeom's dad of where yugyeom is
KingSeokJin: which means that yugyeom just has to stay away from the cat

junglekook: yoongi hyung, jin hyung just stole the braincells

yoongi: ...

Namjoon: but we still need to get in contact with yugyeom

junglekook: i feel bad for him
junglekook: when the ginger cat arrives is usually when he moves again
junglekook: and he's only been in korea for about a month

KingSeokJin: i know, i feel bad for him to

Namjoon: Maybe this time he won't run away?

yoongi: he ran when the cat found him as a child
yoongi: he ran when the cat found him in saudi arabia
yoongi: the only time he didn't immediately run was when he was with us in america

KingSeokJin: but he still ran away eventually though

junglekook: the only reason he didn't go immediately was because he was a part of our coven

Namjoon: I know, but I feel like got6 would be willing to protect him

KingSeokJin: we were willing to protect him, but he doesn't want to put others in danger

junglekook: honestly fuck yugyeom's dad
junglekook: that demon bitch can fight me

jimin: please don't do dumb things

junglekook: aww, but i wanna

Namjoon: you will not fight yugyeom's dad
Namjoon: i wouldn't want you to fight any demon, but his dad isn't exactly a normal demon

KingSeokJin: namjoon's right
KingSeokJin: his dad is basically the king of hell

junglekook: isn't lucifer the king?

KingSeokJin: ok, but then his dad is the prince of hell
KingSeokJin: but that's not my point
KingSeokJin: my point is that we need a plan

yoongi: the best thing would be if yugyeom told got6 the truth
yoongi: considering they're the only ones in the same country as him rn

Namjoon: then we should convince yugyeom to do that

junglekook: no offence but he won't listen

Namjoon: maybe, maybe not
Namjoon: Jackson clearly knows something's up, so maybe Yugyeom told them something

junglekook: or maybe they just have braincells
junglekook: cause yugyeom can be obvious af

KingSeokJin: ok let's make a decision

Gyeom: hey guys i'm here now

KingSeokJin: ...or not

Gyeom: and uuuuuh
Gyeom: i'm kinda considering telling got6 about myself?

Namjoon: that's a very sensible decision

Gyeom: i never said i had made a decision!

junglekook: but it would be good if they knew though
junglekook: cause i guess you already know about them?

Gyeom: of course i do

yoongi: you know they won't mind, right?

Gyeom: that i'm the son of the prince of hell?
Gyeom: yeah i guess they won't hate me for it, even though they might have some reactions
Gyeom: i mean it's a pretty big deal

junglekook: especially considering you're literally being hunted by the prince of hell

Gyeom: yeaaah but they already know that i'm being followed by a demon
Gyeom: considering they know about my time with ateez

KingSeokJin: despite that, they're still here, so you don't have to worry about them leaving you

Gyeom: hm

Namjoon: i feel like you've already made the decision though

Gyeom: yeah
Gyeom: i guess i have

Chapter Text

hey there demons [7]

9:45 am

Gyeom: hey so i feel like i made everyone confused and worried so i thought i'd explain myself

Jinyoung: you don't have to if you're uncomfortable

bambam: yugs, are you okay??

Gyeom: no, and i feel like you deserve to know why

Youngjae: is there anything we can do to help you?

Gyeom: i don't think so ??

JB: guys let him say what he came to say

Gyeom: thanks
Gyeom: but it's kind of a long story

Mark: that's fine

jacks: we're listening

Gyeom: okay
Gyeom: so basically this is gonna be my life story since what happens now has to do with my past
Gyeom: when i was born, my mom gave me to a human couple who adopted and raised me
Gyeom: i always knew the truth about my biological parents though, despite never meeting them
Gyeom: but my mom hadn't told my dad that she was giving me up for adoption. actually, he didn't even know that i existed until i was ten years old
Gyeom: which made him furious, both at my mother and at me, for some reason
Gyeom: so when i was thirteen, he found out where i lived and came to murder my adoptive parents

JB: no...

Mark: yugyeom, i'm so sorry you had to go through that

Gyeom: i wasn't home at the time, but i had already discovered that i had powers, so i sensed the danger and didn't go home
Gyeom: i've only had three visions in my entire life, and i had my first one that day
Gyeom: i saw when he murdered them, and i couldn't do anything since it was only a vision, but i knew that it was real

Youngjae: holy-‚'... that's horrible

Jinyoung: i can't even imagine...

Gyeom: yeah
Gyeom: my mom's sister lived in the city, so i ran to her place and begged her to take me away from there
Gyeom: she was very confused but once she realized what had happened, she booked the first flight out of the country for us both and we ran
Gyeom: that's how i ended up in america
Gyeom: we didn't exactly have a lot of money, so for about a month we were just moving between motels and hostels
Gyeom: i had taught myself a few protective spells, so i did my best to keep both of us hidden from my dad's powers
Gyeom: my spells worked, but i couldn't protect us against the weather
Gyeom: my aunt got hypothermia after being out on a cold night when we hadn't been able to pay for a place to stay

JB: please don't say that she died too

Gyeom: we managed to find a nice couple that let us stay with them for a few days, but i wanted to leave cause i didn't want them to be in danger
Gyeom: i convinced my aunt to stay with them and then went alone. i never came back for her since i didn't want to risk her safety
Gyeom: i had only been alone for about a week when bangtan found me

jacks: and then you lived happily ever after?

Gyeom: for about three years, yeah
Gyeom: then i saw a ginger cat that i recognized from my vision of when my parents were murdered

Youngjae: oh crap

Gyeom: bangtan knew a lot about my past by then, so i told them that i thought my dad was coming, but they said they would protect me
Gyeom: at that point, i knew a lot more about my powers since Seokjin, Yoongi and Namjoon had kinda trained me and taught me more stuff
Gyeom: we managed to hold on for three months before jungkook got hurt
Gyeom: no one actually saw my dad except me, but everyone knew he was somewhere close, and when jungkook got hurt i realized i couldn't stay
Gyeom: so i left to train with ateez in saudi arabia
Gyeom: i had sensed that their leader was a warlock, which is why i auditioned for them and not some other dance group
Gyeom: and everything was fine until this year, when i saw the ginger cat again and immediately moved to korea
Gyeom: i didn't want to stay since ateez has five human members that would not be able to defend themselves against a demon
Gyeom: and well, now i'm here

Jinyoung: that-...

JB: I...

Youngjae: what hteee

jacks: speechless

bambam: you're not gonna run away again, are you?

Gyeom: eeh

bambam: i know you don't want us to be in danger but that's not your choice to make!
bambam: or it kinda is since it's your dad, but y'know, we don't want you to leave, even if it means we'll be in danger

JB: I agree with bambam, but I also have one huge question

Jinyoung: same

JB: What does your dad want from you?

Gyeom: well, basically, he just wants me
Gyeom: he wants to take me and keep me with him. he feels like the fact that i'm his son makes me his belonging, and he's mad as hell at my mom for keeping me from him

Mark: oh
Mark: that explains why everyone else who tries to protect you is in danger

Gyeom: yeah, he feels like everyone that gets close to me is stealing me away from him in some twisted way

jacks: possessive behavior at its finest

Gyeom: truly

JB: i have another question
JB: and you really don't have to answer if you don't want us to know
JB: but what are your parents? and what are you?

Mark: right, you never actually said what you are

Jinyoung: it has to be something supernatural since you had visions and can do spells, right?

Gyeom: uuh yeah
Gyeom: so about that..

bambam: we don't care about what you are yugs, we're just asking to understand you better

jacks: that's true, we won't be mad if you're uncomfortable telling us!

Gyeom: wow bangtan was right

Youngjae: ???

Gyeom: heh nevermind
Gyeom: but my dad is basically a demon, and he wants to take me back to hell, where he's from

bambam: does that mean you're a demon?

Gyeom: not exactly...

Youngjae: your mom?

Gyeom: an angel

JB: ...

Jinyoung: ...

jacks: a demon and an angel had a child together?

Mark: i've never heard that happened before

Jinyoung: hasn't happened before

Gyeom: yeah jinyoung hyung is right

bambam: i still don't care about what you are gyeom
bambam: wait that sounded rude
bambam: i meant that it doesn't matter, you're still the same person

JB: i think we all agree with bambam

Youngjae: yes!

Mark: yea

Jinyoung: now that all of this drama is over, we have to talk about what's gonna happen

Gyeom: ???

JB: he's right
JB: we don't want you to run away again

Gyeom: i still don't want you to be in danger...

Mark: you lived with your adoptive parents for thirteen years, spent three years in america, barely one year in saudi arabia, and now you've been in korea for a month
Mark: do you see the pattern here?

Gyeom: ...

Jinyoung: you spend less and less time in every country

Mark: the most likely thing is that your dad is getting closer
Mark: i don't think you'll be safe for more than a week, even if you do decide to move again

Gyeom: wow thanks that makes me feel real good about all of this

Mark: sorry, didn't mean to sound so threatening, but you get my point

bambam: hey everyone i think we could take a break and talk more about this tomorrow, yeah?
bambam: we all have a lot to process

Youngjae: that's true

jacks: YOUNGJAE can you come to my room????

Youngjae: uuh sure, why?

jacks: i still have to apologize for how rude i was yesterday!

Youngjae: coming hyung!

Gyeom: bye guys, i'm gonna talk to bangtan about this..

bambam: good luck!

Jinyoung: bye

Chapter Text

hey there demons [7]

5:30 pm

Jinyoung: hey gyeom

Youngjae: ???

bambam: hyung this is a group chat

Jinyoung: i know that but still

Gyeom: hello hyung ^.^

Jinyoung: i have gone back in time and retrieved something that i would like to have explained
Jinyoung: unless you don't wanna explain it, which would also be fine

Gyeom: i've already decided that i'm gonna be honest with u guys even when i don't want to, so ask away
Gyeom: i'll tell you if it's too personal but i promise not to lie

Jinyoung: thank you
Jinyoung: so, remember when you said you passed out in the middle of a street?

Gyeom: ...yes

jacks: oof even i remember the scolding u gave him later, that shit was brutal

Jinyoung: and remember what you said when we asked why you passed out?
Jinyoung: we asked why and you said that there were three reasons
Jinyoung: "lack of food, lack of sleep, head problem"

Youngjae: wow he REALLY went back in time

Gyeom: i feel like you copy pasted that

Jinyoung: i did yeah

Mark: when is this from? a month ago or smth?

Jinyoung: a few weeks perhaps
Jinyoung: but anyway
Jinyoung: we still don't know what you meant by "head problem"
Jinyoung: does it have to do with anything supernatural?

Gyeom: oooh!
Gyeom: yeah it does actually
Gyeom: i told you before that i've only had three visions in my life
Gyeom: that day i had another vision which i guess is why i passed out, and also why i couldn't tell u the reason for why i passed out
Gyeom: since y'know, it was supernatural and u didn't know about me yet

bambam: oh

Youngjae: do you wanna tell us what you saw in the vision or is it personal?

Gyeom: sorry i can't say

Jinyoung: that's okay

Youngjae: we understand

Gyeom: thanks guys

Jinyoung: you had also been sick right before that

Mark: this is starting to sound like an intervention

Jinyoung: sorry
Jinyoung: but i kind of have the feeling that you weren't sick..?

Gyeom: uuh, you're right
Gyeom: that was back when namjoon hyung was in korea
Gyeom: the rest of the bts coven was actually here, as well, but they left before namjoon hyung

jacks: wait what i never knew of this???

Gyeom: i know
Gyeom: we tried to keep it on the low so that no one would ask what they were doing here

Mark: oh?

Gyeom: yeet
Gyeom: bangtan came to help me with a new protection spell

Jinyoung: oh

Youngjae: ooh

bambam: oooh

jacks: do i add more 'ooooohs' or do i let it slide

Jinyoung: let it slide

jacks: kay

Mark: what kind of protection spell? i mean, i assume you already had some up since i've never been able to sense your aura

Gyeom: yeah, i have a few, but most of them fade with time and need to be redone

Youngjae: makes sense

Gyeom: they basically hide me from anyone who might otherwise be able to sense things about me
Gyeom: which is why you thought i was human at first, hyung

Mark: that explains it

Gyeom: and that day when i stayed home from school, it was to recover since the spell took a lot of energy

Jinyoung: aah, okay

JB: Everyone

jacks: woo welcome jb!

JB: thanks but no
JB: i need to tell you something

jacks: rude but ok

Youngjae: what is it hyung?

bambam: oh no this sounds like it's gonna be serious

Jinyoung: sounds like another plot twist coming

JB: What?
JB: Can I just say what I came to say please

bambam: sure go ahead

JB: thanks bammie
JB: anyway
JB: the congress just called to a meeting, and as this coven's leader, I'm obligated to go

Jinyoung: why a meeting now?

jacks: boycott it

bambam: pretend you're dead

Youngjae: die for real

JB: …what the actual..?
JB: I'm going to the meeting, that's not the problem

Jinyoung: why did they call to a meeting?

JB: There have been attacks

Gyeom: oh

JB: yeah
JB: mostly against younger supernatural groups, that aren't as well prepared to defend themselves

Gyeom: has anyone been hurt??

JB: no, the attacks haven't been very dangerous so far, it's mostly been conjurings, so it wasn't even conscious beings
JB: but the conjurings were a lot stronger than normal so the congress suspects that they're being created by a very powerful demon

Jinyoung: yugyeom, do you think your dad could do that?

Gyeom: yeah my sperm donor is a pretty strong demon

bambam: sorry this is not the right moment but i just snorted at that
bambam: "sperm donor"

jacks: you're not the only one lol

Mark: jaebum, when's the meeting?

JB: tomorrow

jacks: oh shit

Youngjae: what are you gonna tell them?

Gyeom: this is because i'm here
Gyeom: no one would be getting attacked if i wasn't here

bambam: yugs, no, don't say that

Gyeom: but it's true isn't it?

Mark: yugyeom, running from your dad is not going to help

Jinyoung: yes, people are getting attacked, but you're not the one attacking people

Gyeom: i could move

jacks: yeah, and then the problems would move, too
jacks: they won't disappear

JB: Yugyeom, I won't tell the congress anything about you unless they ask
JB: I think this meeting is mostly to inform and warn everyone, not to investigate

Gyeom: tell them if you have to, i'm not gonna stop you

JB: well, I'm not telling them unless it's necessary
JB: there are over 50 covens in seoul, and you don't need to expose yourself to all of them

Gyeom: wait i just realized i have no idea what the congress is
Gyeom: i assume those are the people in charge of the supernatural population in korea?

Mark: basically, yeah
Mark: most covens have a leader, and all those leaders make up the congress

Jinyoung: the population is so low, we don't need any official leader who decides over everyone

JB: the congress is mostly to hold a dialogue between covens and make sure that no one is being treated unfairly or is using their powers to break laws

Gyeom: so you have no supernatural leaders?

JB: the congress has three presidents, but everyone there has just as much power
JB: there's no official leader that controls everyone
JB: it's a group discussion more than an official meeting, since no one has more power than anyone else

Gyeom: so what's the congress gonna do about the situation with the attacks?

Jinyoung: tell everyone to watch out, i suppose

Gyeom: who calls the meetings if there are no leaders?

JB: one of the three presidents, but anyone can contact a president and ask them to call to a meeting if they have something important to bring up

Youngjae: it's actually a pretty good system but it only works since there are so few of us

bambam: i can imagine america had a lot more bureacrasy?

Jinyoung: not the right spelling

Gyeom: yeah they had
Gyeom: but i'm worried about the other covens

Mark: they're not the main target, and they're capable of defending themselves

Gyeom: not against him
Gyeom: no one is

Jinyoung: all the more reason for you to stay

bambam: he's right
bambam: at least you'll have a better chance if you aren't alone

Gyeom: yeah i guess…

JB: good
JB: i'll probably leave before you wake up tomorrow, but i'll tell you what was said at the meeting after school

bambam: but that's an ETERNITY!

JB: well, i'll get back while you're still in school, but you should all focus a bit more on your studies

Mark: why though

JB: i was expecting resistance from maknae line or jackson, not you

Mark: yeah but why do i have to though
Mark: i'll probs end up becoming a potion seller of spell worker anyway and there's no algebra involved in that

jacks: omg hyung is right!

Jinyoung: Jackson you're a werewolf, his argument doesn't even apply to you

jacks: what if i end up becoming a-...

Jinyoung: yeah, go on, tell me a job that's specific to werewolves and doesn't involve any human school subjects

jacks: i'll get back to you on that

JB: you do that, now go study

jacks: yessir

JB: and everyone else should too

Youngjae: i already did my homework though

Jinyoung: gold star for u

bambam: bye everyone stay safe eat cake

Mark: …
Mark: why can we never have a normal goodbye

bambam: it's me, ya boi

Gyeom: can't believe i've been here for more than a month and you've only said that once

Jinyoung: what do you want child

bambam: the disrespect, smh
bambam: i just want to chat!

jacks: we're all in school though
jacks: we could just talk to each other

Youngjae: except jb hyung

jacks: yeah well he isn't usually entertained by our conversations anyway

Jinyoung: same

bambam: go text your boyfriend instead, then

Jinyoung: he's in a meeting though

Youngjae: it hasn't finished yet?

Jinyoung: actually yeah it has but he's on his way home so i see no reason to text him

bambam: sounds like a you problem

Jinyoung: ...

jacks: oof rip in peace bammie

Jinyoung: i'm not gonna kill him

bambam: ...
bambam: finna die, my last words will be like yoloswag

Jinyoung: actually i changed my mind

Gyeom: rip in peace

Youngjae: i want his room when he dies

bambam: hey! i'm still here!

Youngjae: naww

JB: the crackheads are really jumping out today, huh?

jacks: jb hyung!

Youngjae: jb hyung!

Gyeom: jb hyung!

bambam: dad!

JB: uuh
JB: ...hello i guess?

Mark: jaebum
Mark: what did they say at the meeting?

JB: nothing unexpected
JB: just told us to keep our eyes open, don't let each other go out alone, and that we should report any incidents
JB: the standard precautions

jacks: nothing more?

JB: they don't know more than that
JB: actually, we know more about what's going on than they do, considering what yugyeom has told us

jacks: oh
jacks: yeah ig that's true

bambam: am i allowed to run from school really quick to hug jb hyung?

Mark: why

Jinyoung: No

bambam: aww man
bambam: i just realized i haven't hugged him in a while

JB: you hugged me yesterday though

bambam: an eternity

Youngjae: hey do you guys wanna hear a funny story
Youngjae: yugyeom & bambam already know

jacks: yes!

Mark: k

Youngjae: well it's not really a funny story but our english teacher said this in class today
Youngjae: his voice was probably funnier than the actual sentence though
Youngjae: "There will be no dabbing in this classroom!"

JB: bambam?

Gyeom: yup it was bambam who dabbed lol

Jinyoung: for real
Jinyoung: i thought i raised you better than this

bambam: clearly, you didn't

jacks: i shOulD HAve LefT yOu oN thAt StReet CorNeR wHerE yOu weRe sTanDinG

bambam: -buT YOU DIDNT!

Jinyoung: i know that's a vine reference, but for once i think it's actually accurate

Youngjae: lol

Jinyoung: i should never have decided to raise a child

Youngjae: ?

Jinyoung: no not you, bambam

Gyeom: wait you raised them???

Jinyoung: oh
Jinyoung: yeah, i did
Jinyoung: i found them when they were kids and basically adopted them

Gyeom: omg i never knew that

JB: when I met them about fifteen years ago, jinyoung had just found bambam
JB: he was just a baby

Gyeom: but hyung, weren't you also a kid back then? i mean i get that jinyoung hyung is immortal, but you're still a teen, aren't you?

JB: i'm actually a lot older than i look
JB: as a shapeshifter, i'm not immortal, but i can change my appearance so that i look younger

Youngjae: so jaebum stayed with jinyoung and helped him raise us

bambam: jinyoung & jaebum hyung are like mine and youngjae's parents

Gyeom: not to try and unlock any Tragic Backstory™, but why couldn't your own families raise you?

bambam: my demon parents were pretty demonic
bambam: i think they forgot me??

Jinyoung: i grabbed him while his parents were busy fighting some of my vampire friends, and they didn't really seem to care that their son was missing so i've had him since then

JB: the congress didn't love it when me and jinyoung went to tell them that we were adopting a demon

jacks: i've always wondered about that
jacks: didn't they say no like ten times?

Jinyoung: i didn't keep count

JB: but they eventually agreed that it was better that we raised our demon baby as well as we could, than just leave him to fend for himself

Gyeom: that's nice

bambam: yup
bambam: and then then found youngjae when we were about five

Youngjae: my biological parents are faeries but they exchanged me with a human child, so i'm also some sort of changeling
Youngjae: my human parents always thought something was wrong with me, but they ignored it until my powers started showing
Youngjae: i was around five when they threw me out
Youngjae: luckily, jaebum hyung found me less than a day after i was kicked out

Jinyoung: he's been with us ever since

Gyeom: aww

Mark: it's a pretty sweet story

jacks: me and mark didn't come until later
jacks: but u have to be level five to unlock our Tragic Backstories™

Gyeom: what level am i then?

jacks: four and a half just because i can't be bothered to have a storytime rn

Gyeom: lmao

Jinyoung: children, don't you have class?

bambam: aight imma head out

Gyeom: yeah same bye!

Youngjae: see you hyung!

jacks: oops i'm leavin

Mark: how to get them to leave: mention class

Jinyoung: ...sigh

Gyeom: at some point

junglekook: good!

junglekook: uuh... Yes™

Gyeom: WHY

junglekook: smallest sign???
junglekook: gyeom, namjoon hyung went to the congress meeting in seoul yesterday
junglekook: there have been attacks
junglekook: your dad is veeeery close by now, and you know it

4:30 pm


Gyeom: there's a pounding in my head

Youngjae: glitter all over the room

jacks: pink flamingos in the pool

bambam: nO

Gyeom: oh yeah that's probably jimin hyung
Gyeom: sounds like something he'd do

bambam: oh ok that dOESN'T HELP AT ALL
bambam: WHY IS HE IN MY BED???

Gyeom: as a prank?? idk

jacks: lololol

bambam: ...why do i feel so targeted

Jinyoung: i happen to know what's going on but that's just cause i was home when they got here

Youngjae: who got here???

jacks: bangtan!

bambam: the american coven??

Gyeom: technically they're all korean but yeah, they do live in america

Youngjae: where is mark hyung and jb hyung
Youngjae: do they know about this?

jacks: uuuh

Jinyoung: not yet

JB: WHY was there a boy skateboarding on our roof when i got home?
JB: and who are the three people doing the macarena in our kitchen?

jacks: oh, about that
jacks: i kinda told namjoon that his coven could stay at our place for a while..?

JB: i mean
JB: that's fine, i guess
JB: but why?

Mark: they wanted to come to look after yugyeom

Gyeom: hyung how do you know?

Mark: it's a hard-to-attain skill that you might not have heard of
Mark: it's called using LOGIC and BRAINCELLS

Youngjae: oof

bambam: ok the stranger in my bed just introduced himself as jimin so i guess you were right gyeom
bambam: he seems like a neat dude

Gyeom: oh! but who were the people doing the macarena?? and who's on the roof??

JB: i got everyone to the kitchen and they just introduced themselves

Jinyoung: not everyone
Jinyoung: bambam, jimin and jackson still aren't here

jacks: i'm in my room but i'm coming

bambam: we're coming too

Mark: the people doing the macarena were jin, hoseok and taehyung
Mark: jungkook was on the roof

Gyeom: i would have guessed jungkook would be dancing but that makes sense too, ig

JB: namjoon and yoongi somehow knew we were coming home and were waiting in the living room

Gyeom: well they're oracles so that's no surprise
Gyeom: have fun getting to know bangtan! i'm going out with a friend for a few hours!

JB: wait but what do we do about bangtan?

Mark: gyeom already left

Jinyoung: i guess we'll have to actually interact with them
Jinyoung: spooky, right?

JB: shut up

Jinyoung: wait where did bambam and jungkook go?

JB: ...shit

Mark: youngjae just ran off with taehyung and jimin

jacks: omg this is gonna be so much fun!

Jinyoung: ...yeah
Jinyoung: can't wait

Namjoon -> Gyeom [private chat]

07:30 am

Namjoon: if got6 asked you, would you join their coven?

Gyeom: yes
Gyeom: wait i'm not supposed to answer that fast, am i?

Namjoon: well you already did

Gyeom: did they say something??

Namjoon: they may or may not have implied it

Gyeom: which means..?

Namjoon: they asked me if I thought you'd wanna join their coven
Namjoon: I said that I would stealthily investigate the matter

Gyeom: but you just asked outright? how is that stealthy?

Namjoon: it simply isn't

Gyeom: lmao

Namjoon: but now that I know this I should tell them to just ask you

Gyeom: wait are they really gonna

Namjoon: I don't know, but they're seriously considering it
Namjoon: only thing is that they're worried you're gonna say no because of your situation

Gyeom: it's not the ideal time to ask, you mean?

Namjoon: oh no, I think it's the perfect time to ask
Namjoon: you need the support of a coven now more than ever
Namjoon: they just don't wanna put the pressure of decision-making on your shoulders when you're already under so much pressure

Gyeom: ah okay i see what you mean

Namjoon: keep that in mind

Gyeom: thanks for the heads up

Namjoon: you're welcome, stay safe

Gyeom: oh no i was planning on running in front of cars and diving off bridges

Namjoon: ha ha
Namjoon: very funny

hey there demons [7]

7:55 am

Mark: there is peanut butter in the bathtub

bambam: don't ask and i won't lie

Mark: ...ok

Jinyoung: just make sure you clean it up

JB: sorry but who is blasting smash mouth at this ungodly hour?

bambam: it's almost 8 in the morning
bambam: and we have school

JB: i stand for what i said, now answer my question

bambam: for once it isn't me

Mark: i think it's jackson

Jinyoung: ...why

bambam: probably cause he's rooming with taehyung and they set each other off
bambam: they both overflow with stupid ideas and none of them have any impulse control

Mark: sounds like some other people i know

bambam: very funny hyung

JB: could someone tell them to turn it off?

Mark: you probably shouldn't do that

Jinyoung: why??

Mark: the alternative is youngjae and jimin blasting "barbie girl" and shout-singing the lyrics, which in my opinion is worse

JB: hm

Jinyoung: how about you people go to school on time for once?

bambam: excuse you, i'm always on time!

Jinyoung: literally not once this week have you been on time, and it's only wednesday

bambam: exactly!
bambam: i have three more chances to get there on time!

JB: maybe you could start today

bambam: yugs just texted and asked to walk there together

Youngjae: oh i guess he really is getting there on time today

JB: stick with yugyeom, he's a good influence

jacks: he is??!?

JB: in this one aspect of your life, yes he is
JB: literally everything else is a mess when they're together though

Jinyoung: ok everyone just go to school
Jinyoung: also i hate how i have to say that every morning


Jinyoung: goodbye problem child

Youngjae: BYE MOM!

Jinyoung: goodbye slightly less problematic child

JB: ...sometimes i wonder how i got here

Mark: sometimes?
Mark: i wonder that everyday

temporary housemates [14]

9:33 am

bambam: happy saturday peeps!

Mark: do you see how that message absolutely is not necessary

bambam: what? i'm just trying to spread some weekend positivity!

jacks: the relief i experience simply from not being in school is positive enough, i don't think i need any other form of encouragement

junglekook: hey kids pardon my fucking language but who the hell drank my banana milk???

JB: kids?
JB: everyone here except yugyeom is older than you

jimin: oh no

Namjoon: ...whoever touched his banana milk has a lot to regret

KingSeokJin: bye guys, it has been nice getting to know you

Jinyoung: what are you talking about..?

Namjoon: you'll know soon enough

bambam: sounds ominous
bambam: i like it!

junglekook: if no one confesses, I WILL use violence

jacks: tf

yoongi: jungkookie calm down, your banana milk is in the living room
yoongi: you left it there ten minutes ago

junglekook: ooh okay thanks hyung!

Gyeom: wow yoongi hyung really saved us

JB: saved us from what?

KingSeokJin: death, destruction, other horrible things that start with a d

taetae: dicks?


Jinyoung: oh my god
Jinyoung: this is a complete mess

Mark: it really is, huh

Namjoon: I have so many regrets

JB: mood


junglekook: wow the maknae really be steppin up

Jinyoung: we're listening gyeom

KingSeokJin: i'm not listening
KingSeokJin: i'm reading

taetae: *insert windshield wiper laugh*

Gyeom: caan i
Gyeom: talk

Namjoon: sorry about those guys we don't associate with them

Jinyoung: i mean, we do associate with them, but it's with great regret

Gyeom: ok whatever
Gyeom: ateez is coming to korea for like a week or two

bambam: your dance team from saudi arabia??!

junglekook: the coven that isn't really a coven??

Gyeom: uuh yeah
Gyeom: the dance team with 5 humans and 3 supernatural beings

Namjoon: do they know about the ginger cat and your dad?

Gyeom: kinda
Gyeom: i mean, they don't know everything about my past but they know the basics

Jinyoung: sounds like this mess is turning into an even bigger mess

jacks: 7 + 7 + 8 = 18 crackheads
jacks: omg this is gonna be a mess

bambam: ahhaha i love this

taetae: 18 mad lads

Namjoon: ...that math was not right

Jinyoung: 7+7+8 = 22
Jinyoung: definitely not 18

hoseok: where are they gonna stay?

Gyeom: they're staying with seonghwa hyung's family
Gyeom: he lives pretty close to our high school

bambam: ooh will we get to meet them?

Gyeom: i think so? i mean i'm definitely gonna meet up with them, so you might get to, as well

Youngjae: ooh that's so cool, i only know other covens here in south korea

hoseok: they're not technically a coven, are they?

Gyeom: yeah that's right
Gyeom: there's too few of them since the human members don't count

bambam: neat

Namjoon: sorry to interrupt but bangtan
Namjoon: can all of you come downstairs? we're leaving

jacks: wait where are you guys going?

yoongi: we're meeting up with the presidents of the congress

Youngjae: oh?

hoseok: no official business, just to talk and catch up
hoseok: since we haven't been in seoul for a long time, you know

JB: that makes sense

Namjoon: jihyo, irene and moonbyul were all free to meet today so we thought we'd go see them

Gyeom: are those the current presidents?
Gyeom: sorry i'm still not caught up

JB: that's okay

Namjoon: yeah, those are the presidents right now

bambam: good luck!

taetae: we're just talking but thanks!

Namjoon: we'll see you later

hey there demons [7]

9:45 am

bambam: YUGYEOM

Gyeom: chan as in the leader of stray kids?

JB: hang on, you know chan??

Gyeom: yeah we went to middle school together
Gyeom: though i didn't know he was a vampire until recently

Youngjae: wow

Mark: do you know the rest of stray kids, too?

Gyeom: yeah we're pretty good friends

jacks: omg
jacks: do you know any other covens?

Gyeom: i guess i'm friends with the day6, twice and itzy covens as well
Gyeom: though none of them know about my background or the details about my identity

Jinyoung: okay apparently you're friends with everyone

jacks: mr worldwide

Gyeom: that's three covens, i definitely don't know everyone lol

bambam: well i started this conversation bc chan messaged me
bambam: he said changbin and jisung had seen the ginger cat

Gyeom: ...oh

Jinyoung: were they attacked??

bambam: no
bambam: apparently they're both witches so they lured the cat far away from where they live and then teleported home so that it wouldn't be able to follow them

Gyeom: good, that was smart

JB: they're not helpless, you know

Gyeom: yeah i know but the cat isn't the big problem here
Gyeom: my dad still hasn't shown himself, but once he does, that's when things really happen

Jinyoung: yugyeom, we know that he's dangerous. we know that you've said no one can defeat himself
Jinyoung: but we're still here

JB: we'll stay by your side until you're safe, okay?

Gyeom: ...

Mark: you're practically a member of this coven already

Gyeom: oh?

jacks: guys are we doing this???

JB: mayhaps we are

Jinyoung: that's definitely not a word



jacks: LMAO

JB: ...

Gyeom: omg

Jinyoung: ...despite that spelling, it's something we're all wondering
Jinyoung: and if you can't reply right now, that's okay and we understand

Gyeom: Yes

JB: You. yes????

jacks: ahhsjf you say yes?

Youngjae: rly.?

bambam: why is everyone malfunctioning? we literally planned for this

Jinyoung: we didn't actually plan this far, we only planned the asking part

bambam: lol
bambam: welcome to the oven yugyeom!

jacks: why are you purposely misspelling that word?

bambam: cause i stand for my own mistakes and carry them with pride

Gyeom: does this mean we're now got7?

JB: i think it does

Jinyoung: considering how bad everyone here is at math, we could also be got9 or got4
Jinyoung: people in this group can't really count
Jinyoung: but yeah we're got7

bambam: if there's no celebration dinner tonight, i'm suing

JB: then i guess we'll have to do that

jacks: yesss!

Youngjae: yiii!

Mark: sure

Gyeom: thanks everyone i really appreciate all of you

Jinyoung: and we appreciate you

bambam: same <3

Gyeom: thank you <3

stray lids [10]

10:07 pm

Gyeom added Bang Chan, Wooj and 7 others to stray lids

Gyeom: how to sneak out without anyone noticing

squirrel: pink fluffy unicorns dancing on rainbows 24 hour version

Lixie: baby shark 10 hour version
Lixie: wait what
Lixie: jisung what the hell?

squirrel: felix, what???

Gyeom: ...

Seungmin has left stray lids

hyunjin: aah i wish this chat had been named "the building"

squirrel: "seungmin has left the building"

Lixie: lol

Gyeom: so is no one giving me a serious answer?
Gyeom: how to sneak out without any of your 13 hyungs noticing?

Lixie: both me and jisung already answered

Gyeom: i don't see how baby shark and pink fluffy unicorns dancing on rainbows is gonna help me?

squirrel: put the video on medium volume and no one will hear you sneak out

Lixie: and no one will enter your room cause no one wants to be mentally damaged by listening to those songs

Gyeom: that's... surprisingly well thought out

Bang Chan: wait a fuckin second

Lixie: ...oops

squirrel: ...we have accidentally exposed ourselves

Bang Chan: is this why you randomly start playing those songs late at night???

squirrel: gotta go, good luck yugyeom hyung!

squirrel has left stray lids

Lixie: yeah same bye!

Lixie has left stray lids

Bang Chan: big sigh
Bang Chan: wait yugs, why do you have to sneak out?

Gyeom: i gotta go meet someone and don't want anyone to know

Bang Chan: but you don't live with got6, right?

Gyeom: technically no but i've been staying with them for the past few days

Bang Chan: ah i see

Gyeom: i couldn't really ask for help to sneak out from the people i'm trying to sneak past

Bang Chan: understandable
Bang Chan: we won't tell on you, as long as you're careful

Gyeom: yeah i know what i'm doing
Gyeom: thank you guys

bambam -> Gyeom [private chat]

12:09 am

bambam: yugyeom i know you went out tonight

Gyeom: …oh crap
Gyeom: are you mad? do the others know?

bambam: Of course i'm mad! That was reckless! Do you even know what could have happened?!
bambam: You went out alone when you KNOW there's a demon out there trying to find and kidnap you!
bambam: I was so worried!

Gyeom: bam, i'm sorry

bambam: that doesn't help!

Gyeom: i know it's not the best time, but i knew i was safe because i wasn't alone tonight

bambam: …Oh?

Gyeom: yeah
Gyeom: i didn't actually want to tell anyone this, but the reason i went out was to see my mom

bambam: oh

Gyeom: yeah
Gyeom: i get that i still probably should have told someone, but i didn't really want anyone to know
Gyeom: and i'm sorry for worrying you

bambam: i always worry about you, especially after everything you've told us
bambam: not because i don't think you can protect yourself but because i care about you a lot
bambam: and yeah, i don't have the most experience with caring about people so this is kinda rare

Gyeom: it's sweet bammie
Gyeom: i care a lot about you, too

bambam: okay come to my room so i can hug you!
bambam: you can sleep in my room if you want

Gyeom: yes please i'm coming
Gyeom: <3

bambam: <3

yugs protection squad [30]

7:14 pm

JB added Namjoon, HongJoong and 27 others to yugs protection squad

JB: this gc is way too big but this is an emergency

bambam: hyung why are bangtan, ateez and stray kids all here?
bambam: what is going on

HongJoong: did something happen to yugyeom hyung?

JB: yes
JB: but there are so many people here, so everyone has to be quiet while i tell you, okay?
JB: yugyeom is missing

bambam: wHAT

Bang Chan: yugyeom is gone??

Youngjae: whERE IS HE?

Wooj: if they knew that, he wouldn't be missing

junglekook: but
junglekook: i was talking to him like an hour ago?

Namjoon: so was I

JB: yes, a lot of people have talked to him today, but he's definitely not here anymore

yoongi: i tried to look for him but i got a nosebleed and passed out
yoongi: my powers don't work on the magic that's protecting him

Seungmin: oof same

Namjoon: are you an oracle too?

Seungmin: yes

jacks: guys, what are we gonna do?

Mark: magic clearly doesn't work
Mark: i think we should tell the congress

Bang Chan: if every supernatural creature in seoul just keeps their eyes open, we'll have to get some information sooner or later

JB: that is true
JB: i'll contact jihyo and ask her for a meeting

Jinyoung: where was he last seen?

bambam: he was gonna go home tonight, but he never got there

wooyoung: me & san were supposed to meet him outside his building about thirty minutes ago but he never came
wooyoung: and he's not responding to any messages

JB: yoongi hyung and namjoon tried to look for him but none of them could, so i guessed something was wrong
JB: wooyoung & san confirmed it

Namjoon: has anyone seen the ginger cat lately?

jacks: the ginger cat has to have been around to tell his dad where he is, right?

bambam: wait
bambam: do we really think he's been taken by his dad

JB: i can't really see any alternative here

Jinyoung: I mean it's not like he can get lost between our house and his own

junglekook: he wouldn't just go with that demon voluntarily
junglekook: also, yugyeom is smart, he has powers

yoongi: he wouldn't just walk into his father's trap

junglekook: exactly

JB: i don't really know what else could have happened though

Youngjae: okay, it has to have something to do with his dad, we know that much

bambam: but wouldn't his phone be out of service if he'd been taken to hell?

wooyoung: top three reason not to go hell: no service

bambam: not the right moment but lmao
bambam: but what i mean is that your call shouldn't even go through if his phone was in hell
bambam: and i tried calling

Jinyoung: did it go through?

bambam: yes
bambam: i mean he didn't pick up, but it was definitely calling

JB: then he's probably not in hell yet
JB: unless he's lost his phone

hoseok: they could be fighting

taetae: yugyeom and his phone?

hoseok: no wtf
hoseok: yugyeom and his dad

JB: yeah, maybe

jacks: but yugyeom can teleport, he shouldn't have had to fight him
jacks: don't you think he would have gone home if he could?

Jinyoung: not if he was being followed by his dad, he wouldn't want to lead him here and put the rest of us in danger

yoongi: hang on, what if he did go voluntarily?

Jinyoung: what do you mean?

yoongi: you said it yourself
yoongi: he doesn't wanna put others in danger and right now there's 13 of us in the same building
yoongi: if he was being followed, he would lead his dad as far from here as he could

JB: ..that is true, but doesn't really tell us anything

Jinyoung: guys, we'll go out and look for him

jacks: isn't that dangerous?

Mark: we don't really have many options right now, since magic isn't working and that's the only thing we can do from a distance
Mark: we'll split up and look for him

JB: we'll go in groups of 3-4 so that someone can always contact the others if anything happens
JB: who's coming?

Bang Chan: all of stray kids are

HongJoong: there's only three of us that can actually go out with you, but our other members could wait at your house in case yugyeom comes back

JB: that's good, then all of us can go out

Namjoon: and you already know bangtan is coming

JB: then got6 can split in two groups, bangtan in two, stray kids in three groups and the three ateez members all go together
JB: you can decide the groups within each coven and we'll keep in contact through this chat, ok?

Bang Chan: good idea

Namjoon: everyone can meet outside the got6 house first so we can talk about who goes where
Namjoon: and also to let the ateez humans into the house before we leave

HongJoong: we're on our way

Bang Chan: so are we
Bang Chan: or well we're already outside your house cause jisung and changin teleported us

HongJoong: ok i'll teleport us there too

JB: thank you everyone

bambam: now let's go!

Chapter Text

yugyeom protection squad [30]

9:28 pm

JB: any updates?

yoongi: me, jungkook and jin haven't seen yugyeom anywhere

lino: we didn't find him either, but me and hyunjin did just loose jisung
lino: has anyone seen a squirrel?

Lixie: yeah he came to join me, jeongin and changbin hyung a while ago :)

lino: ...traitor

Bang Chan: how the hell did you loose jisung?
Bang Chan: but no, none of us have seen yugyeom anywhere

JB: okay. ateez?

HongJoong: wooyoung & san have been flying between rooftops, but we haven't seen him anywhere
HongJoong: we did see some weird markings on the ground in one place though

JB: weird how? what kind of markings?

junglekook: me, yoongi and hoseok saw them too!
junglekook: it looked like it had been burned into the ground and it was still hot when we felt it

Namjoon: you shouldn't touch markings that you don't recognize

junglekook: ...i meant that we assumed they were still hot but remained a safe distance away :)

JB: did anyone recognize the marking?

yoongi: i'm not the most educated on this, but it looked like someone had opened a portal there
yoongi: and based on the shape of it, i'd say it wasn't created with good intentions

JB: ...shit

Namjoon: our group didn't find anything weird

Mark: neither did we

JB: and yugyeom hasn't come back to the house?

Jongho: not yugyeom

HongJoong: wait what does that mean?

Jongho: i mean no yugyeom, but we did see a cat on the other side of the street

HongJoong: don't let it see you!

mingi: don't worry hyung, i don't think it did
mingi: but it's dark so we couldn't tell what color the cat was

JB: was it wearing a necklace?

mingi: i couldn't see, but seonghwa hyung thinks so
mingi: oh
mingi: yeosang agrees so i guess it was

JB: okay, you five stay inside
JB: to everyone who's out right now: don't go back to the house
JB: we'll all meet somewhere and then teleport inside

Bang Chan: hyung, should we have changbin & jisung teleport us home?

JB: no, in case the cat has seen us it might follow you home, and i don't want it to know where you live

Jongho: all the lights in the house are off so it looks like no one is here
Jongho: and we don't think the cat has seen us

JB: is it still there?

mingi: it's sitting on the other side of the street, occasionally walks around a little but then goes back

Jongho: it seems to be waiting for something

JB: you can all stay at our place tonight
JB: we'll probably have to cover the entire floor in mattresses but it's the safer than letting any of you go back to your own house

HongJoong: thank you hyung

Bang Chan: yes, thank you

JB: it's really no problem after everything you've helped us with
JB: but now to get back into the house
JB: we should teleport into the kitchen, since it's not visible from the windows
JB: if hongjoong starts, then you can tell us once you're inside and the kitchen is cleared, ok?

HongJoong: sure
HongJoong: mingi, where are you guys?

mingi: we're in the bedrooms upstairs

JB: chan, once hongjoong has gotten them out of the way, do you think changbin could take one half of stray kids and jisung the other half?

Bang Chan: yeah, but are you sure we shouldn't bring more people with us?
Bang Chan: i mean, there's only one teleporter in got6 and only one in bts

JB: that's right...

squirrel: don't worry i'm bringing as many people as i can!

Bang Chan: who are you bringing sung?

HongJoong: we're out of the way now

squirrel: don't worry about it hyung!

Bang Chan: jisung who are you bringing?

Mark: he took minho, felix, youngjae and jinyoung
Mark: we just met up with stray kids but since i can teleport myself, i'm waiting for the rest of got6

JB: okay, we're coming

squirrel: we're out of the way now, next person can come

Mark: okay i'm bringing jb, jackson, bambam and jungkook

JB: then changbin can come with the rest of stray kids
JB: jin, do you think you can take all of bangtan here by yourself?

KingSeokJin: jungkook has already gone so i just have five members
KingSeokJin: i think i can handle that

JB: ok, then it's a plan

squirrel: chan hyung, felix really wants to go outside

JB: while the cat is there???

Bang Chan: is he sure about that?

squirrel: yeah he says he has a plan
squirrel: and i can follow him to make sure that he doesn't do anything dumb

Bang Chan: not that you're much smarter but sure
Bang Chan: just make sure the cat doesn't see you exit the house
Bang Chan: walk toward it from another direction

JB: wait, why are you agreeing to this

Namjoon: don't approach the cat! it's in contact with demons!

Bang Chan: we know

JB: ...i thought you were smart?
JB: this cat is dangerous

Lixie: don't worry guys i'm a cat, and my magic leaves smaller traces
Lixie: i've never met anyone whose magic leaves as little trace as my own

Bang Chan: to other animals, he actually seems like a real animal

JB: wait, he's a shapeshifter?

Lixie: yes

JB: well you should have started with that
JB: but wait why is jisung following him? the cat will see him!

squirrel: not if it can't see me

Namjoon: ...

Bang Chan: jisung knows how to turn invisible

Namjoon: you should have started with that

JB: do that, but be careful
JB: the rest of us will prepare for a sleepover, i guess

hey there demons [7]

4:36 am

JB: jihyo just sent me another update
JB: no one has seen any sign of yugyeom or his dad
JB: there haven't been any attacks since before he disappeared

jacks: is it time to freak out

bambam: it's always time to freak out over yugyeom

Jinyoung: guys, don't loose hope
Jinyoung: he's probably still alive

Youngjae: probably???

bambam: wow that's comforting

Jinyoung: sorry, i don't have anything better to say

JB: ateez is traveling to LA today, but their three supernatural members decided to stay in korea a little longer
JB: for yugyeom's sake

bambam: i hate this
bambam: i hate everything about this
bambam: why couldn't he just be human??? why did he have to go be the son of some crazy demon???
bambam: like, why isn't his mom doing anything about this???

jacks: his mom isn't invincible, bammie

Mark: ...but she's still powerful
Mark: hang on i have an idea


Mark: ...

jacks: sorry but last time you didn't tell us something, a lot of drama went down

Mark: you're right and i wasn't planning on running away
Mark: i just gotta ask yoongi something real quick

JB: okay, and then you come back and tell us

bambam: yugyeom went to see his mother last monday

Jinyoung: what?

jacks: wait, when?

bambam: at night when you all thought he was in my room

JB: why didn't he say anything? and why didn't you?

bambam: i promised him i wouldn't, and he got home okay so i didn't see a reason to break his trust
bambam: until now i guess

Mark: you're not breaking his trust right now bammie
Mark: he's in danger and you're giving us important information to help him

Youngjae: hyung did you already talk to yoongi?

Mark: yes i did
Mark: he said that yugyeom's mother has a lot of responsibility and can't afford to leave her position for longer periods of time
Mark: that's why yugyeom doesn't see her very often

JB: ah, so that also means she can't protect him very well

Mark: exactly
Mark: but if yugyeom went to see her this week, i feel like she would know what's going on with him

Youngjae: is there any way for us to contact her?

Mark: that's what i asked about, but it doesn't seem like there is

bambam: ...this is horrible

Jinyoung: i know and i agree with you

JB: guys, we'll just have to hold on
JB: try to find more information, keep up with what's happening

bambam: if you need me i'll be in my room
bambam: crying

jacks: unironically same

Mark: ...

JB: ...stay strong guys

Jinyoung: this is what stairs are for

Gyeom: omg i had almost forgotten what a mess you guys are

Youngjae: don't worry we'll be quick to remind you
Youngjae: speaking of which, i'm also coming to hug you!

jacks: me too!

Jinyoung: please use the stairs

Youngjae: i did!

Mark: he did not
Mark: i saw him, he climbed the three that's right next to his window to get down

JB: ...

Jinyoung: jackson you better have used the stairs

jacks: i actually did use the stairs

Jinyoung: thank you

Mark: and by that he means that he jumped/fell/rolled down the stairs
Mark: definitely did not walk

Jinyoung: ...i give up

JB: put your phones away we're going to hug yugyeom!

Youngjae: okay dad

Jinyoung -> Mark [private chat]

10:03 pm

Jinyoung: i'm really happy that yugyeom is back, but i think we need to talk about it

Mark: i know but yugyeom clearly doesn't want to

Jinyoung: i mean, we don't even know what happened
Jinyoung: did his dad take him? was he hurt? it has to have been horrible for him

Mark: i think the main question is what he had to do to get free

Jinyoung: i know
Jinyoung: i don't even want to think about that

Mark: at the same time i feel like he deserves some privacy right now, especially if it was as horrible as we think
Mark: we shouldn't push him too soon

Jinyoung: agreed

Mark: we'll wait a while to ask him but make sure to show that we're willing to listen if he wants to tell us before we ask

Jinyoung: i think that's a good idea
Jinyoung: jaebum is right next to me and he agrees

Mark: i'm with youngjae rn and he also agrees

Jinyoung: we'll just tell jackson and bambam so they know not to push

Mark: that's good
Mark: sleep well hyung

Jinyoung: ...what have i said about calling me hyung

Mark: lol bye

Jinyoung: and here i was, thinking you were the only child who had inherited any braincells

Mark: i have! i just don't like to use them

Jinyoung: sigh
Jinyoung: sleep well ig

Gyeom: lol okay i guess

bambam: so how do you think we should tell the others?

Gyeom: no offense but what kind of people would we be if we didn't joke around a bit with them first?

bambam: imagine NOT teasing your friends when they don't know you have a boyfriend yet
bambam: smh we gotta have a little fun with this

Gyeom: yes :)

bambam: then let's go :)

hey there demons [7]

7:01 pm

jacks: everything you do is gay, sorry to tell you

bambam: to be a little bit in love with your best friend?

Jinyoung: ...

Youngjae: ...bambam, you know what gc this is right?

Gyeom: omg same!

jacks: wait what

Gyeom: same bambam, i relate lol

bambam: ahhahah
bambam: you have a crush yuggie?

Gyeom: don't tell anyone!

JB: aside from the five other people in this gc that are watching this weird exchange live

bambam: ooh you have a crush? on who??

Gyeom: idk if you know them

Youngjae: omg what is this seriously happening rn

bambam: is it someone from school?

Gyeom: uuh,..
Gyeom: if i answer then you gotta tell me about your crush!

jacks: ...i thought i knew what was going on but i am so confused rn

Jinyoung: same here

bambam: okay
bambam: it's someone from school

Gyeom: me too!

bambam: oh! is he in our year? is it even a boy?

Gyeom: yes to both of those
Gyeom: wbu?

bambam: yes, a boy in our year
bambam: i'm actually dating him

JB: The Fuck?

Mark: ...weren't we worrying about yugyeom just a minute ago?

jacks: ik,..

Gyeom: i'm dating my crush too!
Gyeom: teehee

Jinyoung: i thought you-...

Youngjae: congrats guys!

bambam: thanks youngjae, though i haven't said who i'm dating yet!

Youngjae: yea but isn't it obvious?
Youngjae: you're dating each other and trying to mess with us by pretending not to know who the other has a crush on

Gyeom: ...

bambam: ...

Jinyoung: i knew there was a reason why you're my favorite child

Mark: you know what, i'm not even surprised

JB: not me either
JB: but still, congrats to you two crackheads!

bambam: well youngjae kinda spoiled the surprise
bambam: but yeah we're boyfriends now

jacks: omg that's so great for you!

Youngjae: lol sorry for ruining it but i'm happy for you!

Gyeom: thanks guys ^.^

JB -> Jinyoung [private chat]

7:52 pm

JB: have you noticed if there's anything up with yugyeom?

Jinyoung: how could i not have?
Jinyoung: he's been weird ever since he came back

JB: I know we decided not to push him, but i'm worried

Jinyoung: same here
Jinyoung: i still think we should give him time though

JB: yeaah... i'm not sure
JB: it just seems like he's trying so hard to make it seem like he's fine, but every time we're not looking, he looks so sad?
JB: i don't know how to explain it but i don't think he's alright

Jinyoung: he just got together with bambam
Jinyoung: if he thought he was still in danger, i don't think he would have done that

JB: he wouldn't want bambam to hurt even more in case his dad comes to take him away again

Jinyoung: exactly

JB: yeah,, but he's also the type of person who would want to be honest about everything if he was going to leave us
JB: if he knows his dad is coming back for him and doesn't think he'll be able to escape the demon, he would tell us his honest feelings
JB: at least that's what i think

Jinyoung: you think him confessing to bambam is some sort of goodbye?

JB: maybe? i don't know

Jinyoung: okay
Jinyoung: maybe, but if that's true, then he'll probably try to say goodbye to everyone else too

JB: so we'll look out for any signs that he's trying to say goodbye without actually saying goodbye

Jinyoung: yeah
Jinyoung: let's hope we don't see any...

Gyeom -> junglekook [private chat]

8:00 pm

Gyeom: jungkook i made a mistake

Chapter Text

junglekook -> Gyeom [private chat]

8:01 pm

junglekook: wait gyeom what do you mean by that
junglekook: how serious of a mistake are we talking?

Gyeom: i'm dating bambam

junglekook: omg that's great!
junglekook: i'm so happy for you, i can tell you both really care a lot about each other!
junglekook: wait.. where does the mistake fit into this..?

Gyeom: yeaah
Gyeom: i don't want to hurt him

junglekook: okay
junglekook: are you looking for help, advice, or just someone to listen?

Gyeom: just listen first and then you can say whatever you think about it

junglekook: okay, yeah

Gyeom: i think you all already know that i got taken by my dad

junglekook: i mean you were gone for 4 days, it was kinda hard not to notice

Gyeom: and i messaged everyone when i got back so that everyone would stop worrying
Gyeom: and by everyone i don't only mean got6, but bts (as u know), stray kids & ateez, too
Gyeom: but i'm not safe

junglekook: sorry, what does that mean?

Gyeom: my dad
Gyeom: when he took me, it was kinda bad
Gyeom: okay it was super bad
Gyeom: but he kept talking about all the friends i'd made, and how i probably missed them a lot, so i got worried he was gonna do something to you guys

junglekook: please don't tell me you did something stupid

Gyeom: then i made a deal with him

junglekook: shit gyeom...

Gyeom: and then he let me go back, which is when i messaged all of you and the next day, i went to tell bambam my feelings
Gyeom: i was just trying to be honest, because i want him to know everything in case something ever happens to me
Gyeom: i swear i wasn't trying to get together with him

junglekook: but i thought you asked him out?

Gyeom: no, he asked me

junglekook: no offense but you literally confessed your feelings to him
junglekook: most people ask each other out after that

Gyeom: yeah no shit, but i didn't think that far when i was planning it
Gyeom: and i couldn't exactly say no when he asked
Gyeom: and now i'm really conflicted because i don't want to hurt him

junglekook: okay. now i'm gonna tell you how it is:
junglekook: he will always be hurt by the bad shit that happens to you
junglekook: whether he's your boyfriend or not, bambam cares about you, and it'd hurt just as much even if you'd never confessed

Gyeom: okay where tf did u get these braincells

junglekook: i've always had them
junglekook: now stop worrying about bambam and start worrying about yourself
junglekook: what was the deal? why are you scared of your own safety? why did you dad let you come back?

Gyeom: i'm sorry kook

junglekook: no geT BACK HERE!!

Gyeom: i'll text you tomorrow?
Gyeom: please, i just need some time to talk to got6
Gyeom: anyway i'm leaving bye!

junglekook: ...smh

6:47 pm

bambam: hey guys i'm worried about yugyeom again

jacks: you know yugyeom is in this chat with us, right

Youngjae: have you tried talking to him about it?

bambam: u see...
bambam: that's the first problem

jacks: what is?

bambam: i don't know where yugyeom is

Youngjae: iS HE GONE???

bambam: i don't know and i'm scared
bambam: where are all the hyungs?

jacks: i'm literally right here

bambam: oh, sorry
bambam: i meant to ask where are all the responsible hyungs?

Youngjae: jb & jinyoung hyung went out together and i think mark hyung was going to the magic shop

jacks: shocked and upset

bambam: guys what are we gonna do???
bambam: and today was such a good day!!!
bambam: now it's horrible!!!

Youngjae: we don't know that!

jacks: yeah, let's wait with freaking out until we have a better reason to freak out

JB: guys why is yugyeom's phone disconnected?


jacks: hyung where are you?

JB: we're on our way home, jinyoung was trying to text yugyeom but it said his phone had disconnected

Youngjae: he's not at the house

bambam: he's not at his own house either i already checked
bambam: fREAKING OUT


Youngjae: what?

bambam: a nOTE??

JB: where?

jacks: there's a letter on the kitchen table

Youngjae: currently rushing down the stairs

bambam: me too

jacks: ...i can hear you, you know
jacks: well that was a huge crash

bambam: yea we fell now WHAT DOES THE NOTE SAY?

Youngjae: ...

jacks: ...

JB: guys, what's happening?
JB: ...
JB: it's been a minute now
JB: what did the note say?

Youngjae: hyung

JB: yes?

Youngjae: yugyeom is back with his dad

Chapter Text

hey there demons [7]

7:10 pm

Jinyoung: WHY would he go back to his dad? why didn't he tell us?

Youngjae: he didn't want us to stop him

JB: we would have protected him!

jacks: he didn't want us to, if we protected him we would have been in danger and he's always been a self-sacrificial nerd

Jinyoung: guys, we have to get him back!

Youngjae: not that i'm against it, but how?
Youngjae: he said in his letter that he made a deal with his dad
Youngjae: we can't just go pick him up from hell and expect his dad to let it happen

jacks: guys...
jacks: look in your rooms

Mark: it's a goodbye note

Jinyoung: wait what?

jacks: if you go to your rooms, i think he's left personal goodbye letters for all of us there
jacks: i found mine just a minute ago

Mark: there's one in my room too

Jinyoung: ...this is serious

JB: he really doesn't think he'll come back from his dad
JB: like, not ever

Youngjae: what do the letters say?

jacks: well you've already seen the one he left for all of us
jacks: the one where he explained about him and his dad

Mark: there are personal goodbye notes in our rooms too

Jinyoung: he's really gone...

Mark: fuck
Mark: he wrote about how he thinks i've inspired him to do good with his powers, to use magic for good reasons
Mark: fuck i'm crying

Jinyoung: holy shit i don't think i can read this

Youngjae: guys quick question
Youngjae: where's bam?

JB: oh

jacks: he locked himself in his room

Youngjae: ah okay

Jinyoung: should we go talk to him?

JB: no, let him be alone for a little while
JB: we all have a lot to talk about later
JB: for now, i think we just need to be sad. there's nothing we can do to help, not right now at least, but we need time to process

jacks: we're still gonna help him, right?

Jinyoung: for sure

JB: no doubt
JB: we just need a bit of time first before we can organize ourselves and try to come up with a plan
JB: is everyone okay with that?

Mark: honestly? none of this is okay. we're all upset
Mark: but yea i guess you're right

jacks: if anyone wants a hug i am more than willing to hug, you can find me in the living room

Jinyoung: i'm coming to you jackson

Youngjae: what do i do with his letter

JB: save it

Youngjae: yea..
Youngjae: he wrote such sweet things? i mean it's a goodbye so it's still depressing af, but it's very nice at the same time? i'm conflicted

JB: same

jacks: he said in mine that i'm great at giving him comfort, that he's gonna miss our conversations and my hugs
jacks: ahh i just really wish i could hug him right now

Youngjae: in mine he talked abt that he appreciates me supporting him
Youngjae: but he ended with saying that now it's his time to support me which made me cry, so yeah

Jinyoung: do you think he still would have gone with his dad if he had never met us?

JB: jinyoungie, you can't think like that

Jinyoung: but would he?
Jinyoung: after all, he said that he can't let his dad hurt us, that he wants to do this to protect us

Youngjae: hyung, his dad has always been after him, that didn't change when he got to know us

jacks: but maybe if we hadn't convinced him to stay in korea...

JB: thinking that doesn't help us. besides, even if he had left korea, there's a huge risk his dad still would have got to him
JB: sorry but we don't get to take full responsibility for this

Mark: his dad is a dick

Jinyoung: well that's one thing we agree on

JB: and i know me saying this won't stop you from blaming yourselves, but i think you all know that you're not to blame, even if it feels that way
JB: we're not to blame

Jinyoung: neither is yugyeom though

Mark: that's true
Mark: the only person we can really blame is his dad

JB: sure, yugyeom could have told us what he was doing earlier, but at the same time, it's his choice and we don't get to say what's wrong and what's right

jacks: i agree with that

Mark: his dad is very much wrong, though, i think we can say that

JB: oh yeah that demon fucking sucks. i'm just saying that we shouldn't blame ourselves, or yugyeom for that sake

Jinyoung: so, guys, what do we do with the letter he left for all of us?
Jinyoung: the one where he explains the deal he made with his dad?

jacks: someone should save it

Mark: i can take care of it

JB: okay


To GOT6,

Hi hyungs! Before I start, I want to say that I'm actually very sorry for all of this. Sorry for causing you so much trouble. Sorry for worrying you. Sorry for hurting you...

I know I said that I have everything under control, and I still think I do, but I have a feeling you won't agree with me once I tell you all of it. So, as you all know, I disappeared for four days, and you already suspect that it has with my dad to do. You're right.

He kidnapped me. Or more like, he managed to corner me and then convinced me to come with him by threatening to hurt you, and I can't let anything happen to you guys. You're too good for that.

So he took me to hell. I won't bother with the details, but it was boring and not nice and he hurt me every time I didn't obey him. You see, he wants me to do this willingly. He doesn't mind if our whole relationship is an act, but he wants me to at least play the part well. I honestly don't think I can.

Anyway. He kept talking about the friends I'd made during my time on Earth, and then he started mentioning your names, facts about who you are. It made me worried he was going to do something to you, and he could tell I was worried, so he offered to make a deal.

I'm sorry. I can't let him hurt you. You're the best people I've ever met, and I love you guys too much to put you through that. I had no choice, I had to say yes to the deal he suggested, because it means he won't ever hurt you, even if it also means I have to live as "his son" for the rest of my life.

Again, I'm so sorry. You really did change my life for the better. Please remember that.

-- Yugyeom

bambam -> Gyeom [private chat]

5:35 am

bambam: my messages aren't even delivering
bambam: i don't know why i'm doing this
bambam: i guess i miss you and i just need to pretend that i actually have a way to tell you this
bambam: so, here i am, missing you
bambam: i miss you
bambam: fuck...
bambam: see, it's barely been twelve hours since we realized you're missing
bambam: feels like an eternity to me...



9:09 am

bambam: i guess i don't have to tell you that none of us are going to school today
bambam: we're all very sad
bambam: wow gotta love my vocabulary
bambam: "very sad"
bambam: i don't know how to put it into words, i've never really tried to do that before, i usually just repress how i'm feeling and hope that it doesn't screw me up too much
bambam: i'll just stop trying now



12:30 pm

bambam: you know, this is not what i imagined when you said you had things under control
bambam: also i told jb hyung that i've been messaging you today
bambam: he wishes i would talk to one of the hyungs, but he said that it's better for me to express myself in some way, even if there's no one reading this
bambam: i mean, there are worse coping mechanisms
bambam: the weirdest part is that it doesn't feel real in some strange way?
bambam: i mean i know what happened, i know where you are, but it doesn't feel like it actually happened
bambam: to quote a special person, "it's like my brain remembers it but my heart doesn't"
bambam: sorry to use that sweet quote in such a depressing context
bambam: i just wish it was easier



5:27 pm

bambam: i wish you didn't have to hurt
bambam: also your letter made me cry



11:48 pm

bambam: i think i'm gonna go to school tomorrow but it will be boring without you there though
bambam: i wonder what will happen to these messages
bambam: i wonder what will happen to you but i don't really wanna think about that too much
bambam: maybe i should go to bed
bambam: i hate this so fucking much, why does it fucking hurt so much? it didn't come out of nowhere, we always knew you were in danger, i have no reason to be so surprised
bambam: fuck fuck fuck
bambam: i really don't like to cry. excuse my fucking language but fuck this shit
bambam: i'm not even mad at you, i'm just sad at you
bambam: sad of you? sad at you? idk



1:01 am

bambam: i'm going to bed now. i hope you get to rest tonight

yugyeom was here

i'm bored

that's why i'm carving into a wall

please save me




hey there demons [7]

7:28 pm

JB: the congress knows everything now

Jinyoung: good. maybe now we can get some help with this

Youngjae: what about yugyeom's friends?

JB: ateez will stay in the US unless they're needed here. both them and stray kids want to help, but no one knows how

jacks: bangtan somehow found a house here in korea that they're staying in right now so that they're close and can help
jacks: i met with namjoon today
jacks: they're gonna stay here indefinitely

Mark: i don't know how much it helps to get others involved
Mark: we already know where yugyeom is and why, the question is how we're gonna get him back

JB: that's true, but it's always good to have help

Youngjae: very true

Jinyoung: we're still working on a plan
Jinyoung: basically every oracle we know is trying to find opportunities in the future to save him
Jinyoung: no one passed out this time they tried to use their powers on him, so it's progress!

jacks: baby steps are better than no steps

JB: we'll keep trying, keep fighting
JB: Don't give up

.... . .-.. .--.

he hurt me today

"this will toughen you, son"

fuck you bitch ass demon

i'm not your son

you don't get to break me

Chapter Text

.--. .-.. . .- ... .


three days already passed

i have a plan now

can't write it here

he might see

but i have a plan



hey there demons [7]

6:30 pm

bambam: Guys

Youngjae: oh shit he's capitalizing, this means business

JB: bambam, what's up?

bambam: is everyone here?

Jinyoung: uh yeah?

Mark: yes

jacks: me too, so that's everyone

bambam: guys
bambam: i don't think he was ever planning on losing

JB: sorry, what?

jacks: WHO is gonna lose WHAT?

bambam: no no, i'm saying he's NOT gonna lose
bambam: i mean it's not a competition, but what i'm trying to say is i don't think he was ever planning on leaving forever

Mark: you're talking about yugyeom.

Youngjae: but he said goodbye?
Youngjae: i don't know about you, but i think those goodbyes seemed pretty forever to me

bambam: yeah i thought so too at first, but now i don't

Jinyoung: okay, tell us what you realized or found out or understood or whatever
Jinyoung: i'm not really following what you mean, you'll have to explain

bambam: yeah i'm about to
bambam: i mean it's mostly a feeling, but it makes sense with how he was acting just before

JB: he was acting like he knew something bad was going to happen
JB: which was true

bambam: yes but he also acted tense and careful

jacks: which means?

bambam: careful, since there were things that could go wrong
bambam: he had a plan
bambam: and tense because there was a lot at stake

Youngjae: anyone would act that way in his situation, i mean there was a lot at stake

bambam: not according to every letter he left for us
bambam: he'd already made the deal with his dad, there was no getting out of it
bambam: there were no stakes, he'd already lost

JB: that's true

Jinyoung: yeah, but his behavior is not enough to prove that he's planning to escape from hell

jacks: what else did you realize bammie?

bambam: in his letter
bambam: "i was never planning on leaving you"

Mark: which letter was that?

bambam: the personal one he left in my room

JB: but wait
JB: if your theory is correct, don't you think he would have left more clues?

Jinyoung: he's never wanted us to worry, so yeah he should have left more clues

Youngjae: we'll read through his letters again, see if we missed anything

Mark: even if he has a plan, how will we know? he can't very well tell us that plan now

JB: we'll try our best to figure things out on our own, and then we'll just have to have a lot of faith in yugyeom

bambam: okay




I really really like you, like, a lot. I've tried writing this letter three times already, I can never manage to make it perfect, but I guess imperfection is something we just have to live with, right?

Writing this makes me think of the first time I met you. We were both drawn to each other despite not knowing anything about the other, almost like we were already friends. There's still a lot you don't know, and this isn't the right time to tell you. In all honesty, I don't even know everything yet. The plan isn't done. I'm sorry.

I would like to just write "sorry" about a million times and then call that my goodbye to you, but that wouldn't help either one of us, so instead I'm gonna say what you need to hear (or maybe not, I'm not as all-knowing as I would like to be hahah): I was never planning on leaving you. Not the first time, not this time. It has never been a part of my plan to stay away from you guys.

I keep saying that I'm doing this to protect you, and maybe that's selfish, because I know I'm hurting you every time I leave, so am I really protecting you when I'm also hurting you at the same time? Maybe that's a philosophical question. Anyway, I can't answer it.

I don't want you to give up. Don't give up, Bammie. There's a lot I have to say to you, but you'll get the chance to hear it, I know you will. Someday, you'll understand why I'm leaving and why I'm saying this.

Promise me you won't give up. I won't, either.

-- Yugyeom

it's been a week

i hope they're okay

the plan starts today



hey there demons [7]

4:28 pm

bambam: it's been a week
bambam: i hope he's okay

jacks: yugyeom is strong, and we're all doing our best to get him back

bambam: we could go to hell and look for him

Jinyoung: we shouldn't go to hell, that's a bad idea
Jinyoung: also hell is really big

JB: jinyoung is right

bambam: i know...
bambam: i'm just tired of not making any progress and not knowing how he's doing, if he's even alive

Mark: he's alive, i'm sure of it

Youngjae: how can you be?

Mark: his dad basically just wants him as a trophy, as if yugyeom is his possession
Mark: he might get treated horribly but his dad won't kill him

JB: how did the session today go?

jacks: wait you had another session with the other warlocks today?

Mark: yeah, hongjoong even teleported and was there for a while

Youngjae: it's actually pretty cool that witches & warlocks from four different covens are all working together to find out where yugyeom is

bambam: yeah,
bambam: but how did it go??

Mark: seungmin had to leave early cause he got a headache
Mark: yoongi & changbin had found some new spells that might be useful later
Mark: also, i've had this really weird sound in my head since we tried to find yugyeom

Jinyoung: sound? what kind of sound?

jacks: weird how?

Mark: i don't know, it's like a knocking... it hasn't stopped
Mark: maybe i'm just imagining it

Youngjae: hang on does anyone know morse code?

jacks: no but i have google

JB: mark, do you think it could be a message? in morse code

Mark: actually.. yeah
Mark: wait i'm gonna write down the pattern

jacks: hyung i'm omw to your room
jacks: i've googled the alphabet in morse code so i can help you translate

bambam: okay the rest of us will just wait in anticipation

Mark: wait

JB: what?

Mark: it stopped
Mark: i wrote everything down and then it stopped

Jinyoung: okay but at least we have it saved

Youngjae: have you translated it yet?

Mark: jackson is doing it right now, there were only ten letters

jacks: help please

Youngjae: with what?

jacks: no no no
jacks: that's the translation of the message
jacks: "help please"

bambam: ...shit

Jinyoung: it has to be from yugyeom

Youngjae: but how do we help him?

JB: well, now we know that he has a link to us in some way
JB: maybe it's not strong enough for him to send words directly, but he can at least send things in morse code

Mark: i think the link must have opened when i tried to contact him earlier

Jinyoung: that's probably true...

bambam: do you think it works the other way too?
bambam: like, can we send him messages?

Mark: not sure but we could try

jacks: guys what does this m e a n

bambam: it means he hasn't given up on us
bambam: and he doesn't want us to give up on him, either

hey there demons [7]

3:45 pm


JB: WHat happened?

Jinyoung: what's wrong?

jacks: is everything okay???

Mark: we decided to have another session today after what happened yesterday
Mark: me, yoongi, namjoon, jin, changbin, jisung, seungmin and hongjoong
Mark: and all of us got the exact same vision at the same time

Youngjae: oh shit

jacks: ohmygod

bambam: hyung, what did you see in the vision?

JB: what's the emergency?

Mark: we saw yugyeom

Jinyoung: shit...

bambam: hOW WAS HE???
bambam: WHERE?

Mark: i know everyone wants to freak out but you have to at least try and not freak out, okay?

Youngjae: hyung just tell us

Mark: we saw him in the park near our house
Mark: he seemed like he was hiding in a bush and kept looking around
Mark: we think he's escaped

Jinyoung: we have to go there now.

jacks: honestly i thought bambam would be the first to say it but yes
jacks: we have to go

JB: guys, are we sure we're not rushing into something that's bigger than we're expecting?

Jinyoung: oh yeah no we definitely are, but honestly, so what?
Jinyoung: it's the first concrete clue we've gotten in eight days
Jinyoung: we have to follow it, whatever could happen

JB: okay, i trust all of you
JB: is everyone ready to leave?

Youngjae: WAIT

bambam: WHAT?

Youngjae: someone who can teleport should go there first
Youngjae: not saying the rest of us shouldn't go, but just to find out more about the situation

Jinyoung: that's actually a good suggestion

jacks: but mark hyung is the only one here who can teleport?

Mark: jisung and changbin are still with me, i can bring them

JB: okay, yeah, sure
JB: just be careful okay?

Mark: will be

bambam: good luck hyung

Mark: thank you, bammie



"We're here now."


"And you're probably not gonna like this, but we've split up."

"Oh...You're right, I don't like that."

"Jinyoung, don't worry. Jisung and Changbin both know what they're doing. So do I."

"I know you do, Mark. I'm not doubting you, and not them either for that sake, but I'm worried."

"Yeah, I know. Also, I can hear Youngjae and Jackson yelling somewhere around you. Are they good?"

"Ignore them. Wait, lemme just... Guys shut up, I'm on the phone with Mark!"

"I would have laughed at that if I wasn't so nervous."

"Where are you right now?"

"In the park, trying not to call too much attention to myself. And before you ask, no, we haven't seen Yugyeom yet."

"Let me know if you do."

"Well, obviously. Isn't that the sole reason you're talking to me right now?"

"I mean, yeah, but considering that's the reason you're in the park in the first place..."

"Okay, I get what you're saying."


"So, how's it going?"

"It's been like twenty seconds since you last asked, Jinyoung."

"Sorry, but it's not like I can tell just from the sound of your breathing. I need to ask."

"Okay, well, we haven't seen him yet. I told Changbin and Jisung to teleport to me if they saw Yugyeom somewhere, and since they haven't done that..."

"Are there many people in the park?"

"Wait... I mean, a decent amount? I dunno how to answer that, but wait..."



"Mark, what?"



"I don't know?"

"Mark, what don't you know? What's happening? What did you see?"

"Chill! Just, there's someone sitting behind a bench, but I can't tell who... He's covered by some dark robe or something? I can't tell if it's Yugyeom..."

"Oh, shit, okay... Wait for us, yeah?"


"Does he seem hurt?"

"I really can't tell, Jinyoung, I can't see anything other than a figure dressed head to toe in dark clothes. Honestly, it could be a mannequin for all I know."

"Great. We'll be there in three minutes. Wait for us."

"Sure. I'll call Jisung and Changbin over here."

"Okay. See you soon."

"See you."

Chapter Text

three minutes.

maybe not exactly three minutes, he hasn't had the best opportunities to calculate it, but somewhere close to three minutes until the wards come back up. again, he's not sure, but it seems probable.

yugyeom carefully puts his hand on the door handle, letting out a sigh of relief when there's no electrical shock accompanying the motion. he stays still and listens for a few moments, trying to hear if there's anyone in the hallway outside. when nothing happens, he breathes out slowly and presses down the handle. it makes no noise. he counts himself lucky.

he peeks his head out first, looking left and right before daring to step outside. it's warmer out here than inside the room he's been locked in for the past week, not by much, but his room has been cold. like, really cold. too cold.

yugyeom knows that there are still power dampeners in this hallway just like there are inside his room, so he needs to move somewhere else to be able to teleport away from this place. again, he only has three (now two) minutes until the wards go back up and alert every guard in this entire building of his opened door. he has to move fast.

yugyeom tries to stop his hands from shaking as he moves quickly but silently down the hallway, doing his best not to flinch at the rough stone that make up the floor. honestly, this place looks like a prison from the stone age or something. not very nice at all.

he can hear voices from a room further down the hallway. yugyeom realizes with a small flinch that it's also the only opened door in this hallway, and most likely the only unlocked one as well, meaning that he has no options. he has to go out there.

if he's lucky, there aren't any power dampeners on the other side of that open door and he can just step out and teleport before anyone even notices him. if there are power dampeners, though... well, that would be bad.

he's limping slightly as he moves down the hallway, not wanting to put pressure on his left foot after (probably) twisting it yesterday, and that's just the tip of the iceberg of injuries. some are visible, but most of them aren't. his time here hasn't been the best.

yugyeom stops right next to the door opening, focusing on keeping his breathing quiet as he listens to the voices speaking. it seems like they're talking about lunch, nothing important, definitely not expecting whatever's about to happen. to be honest, yugyeom isn't sure what that is.

he hasn't had a lot of time to explore this place. the only time's he got to leave his room was when a guard walked with him, and that happened once every day, at most. this means he doesn't know where the dampeners are, or even where the doors lead.

one minute left (or something like that).

yugyeom holds out his shaking hand in front of himself, getting ready to put up a protective barrier in case the guards are closer to the door than they sound. he frowns at the way his hand won't stop moving. not that it's unexpected, given everything he's been through and how he's feeling right now, but... it's annoying.

he closes his eyes and take a final breath. when he opens his eyes again, they're glowing.

the guards don't stand a chance. yugyeom puts one foot through the doorway, and then he's levitating off the ground without even thinking about it. one of the guards, the one closest to him, turns his face toward the doorway, but all he has time to do is form an "o" shape with his mouth before he has to put a hand in front of his face against the blinding light.

in the middle of it is the shape of a boy. tall, injured, traumatized, but glowing and levitating above the ground.

he disappears in the blink of an eye.


"we're here!"

mark turns around, watching as the five boys hurry closer to him. he holds a finger up in front of his mouth in a gesture for them to be silent, though they already seem to be aware of the fact that they have to be careful with their volume. they don't want to draw too much attention to themselves.

"where is he?" jackson asks in a lowered voice, and mark nods his head in the direction of the bench he's been watching. they're standing rather close, close enough that they would be able to make out the person's face had he not been wearing a hood to cover it, but not close enough that the person can hear them talk (as long as they speak quietly). he's still just sitting on the ground behind the bench, partly hidden by a bush.

"i sent back changbin to tell stray kids what's going on, and jisung went to inform bangtan", mark tells them. "the person, whoever he is, hasn't moved but he looks around sometimes. never in this direction, though. it's like he's waiting or looking for something."

"or someone", bambam mumbles, not meaning for he others to hear. they do.

it's impossible to tell if the figure is yugyeom. there's nothing identifying about the way they look, not a single clue, which makes the group unsure about whether or not they should approach the mysterious person.

"we can't just stand here", jackson speaks up after some time. some of the other members look like they agree, while others are more hesitant.

"guys, i know they saw yugyeom here in the vision, but what if it's a trap? wouldn't he have gone home if it was really him?" jinyoung says. "why would he stay in the park?"

"we won't know that unless we actually do something", jaebum points out, getting a few nods in response. "we have to approach that person. it's the only way for us to know if it's yugyeom or not."

they don't need to discuss it any more than they already have. after exchanging some determined glances, jaebum takes the lead as they all walk toward the bench.

they only have a short distance left when something seems to shift in the air around them, the difference in the atmosphere so obvious that it's almost tangible. jaebum holds out an arm to stop them from walking any further, while both jinyoung and jackson take a defensive stance.

the hooded figure raises his head to look up at them. he grins.

Chapter Text

the hooded figure grins, and even though there are some similarities between him and yugyeom, it's very clearly not yugyeom.

all bambam has time to think is that it might be yugyeom's dad before there's something bright heading towards them, and bambam finds himself being pushed aside. he can't tell by who, but the person pushes him to the ground harshly and he only barely manages to catch himself before faceplanting into the grass.

when he sits up, he sees that jinyoung and jaebum pushed everyone out of the way just in time for a blazing ball of fire sent by the man in front of them to pass without anyone getting hurt. he turns his head toward who he assumes is yugyeom's dad just as the guy gets up from the ground. the sinister grin is still on his face.

"guys." the tone of jaebum's voice is slightly panicked. "that's not a normal demon."

"is it yugyeom's dad?" youngjae asks as mark helps him to his feet, neither of them looking away from the demon in front of them. the question isn't directed at anyone, but jinyoung turns to him as if to answer.

he doesn't have time to reply though, because the demon opens his mouth and interrupts.

"got6." his voice sounds strangely professional and normal considering what he is. "pleasure to finally meet you."

"can't same the same about you", jackson snaps back. jaebum puts a hand on his shoulder, silently telling him to stay calm. angering the demon won't do them any good.

if it comes down to it, bambam has no idea if they can defeat this demon. on one hand, it would be one against six, so the odds are definitely in their favor, but something about the look on jinyoung's face makes him question if that's really the case.

"jackson wang", the demon snarls, and jackson tenses. "your family still hasn't talked to you, not since you abandoned the pack. did you know your niece started fencing recently? i mean, considering they never talk to you, you probably didn't..."

"stop", mark steps in, his voice strong. it's clear that the talk of jackson's family is hitting a bit too close to home, and while they may not have any idea how the man knows these things, they're not surprised that he does. he's a powerful demon, after all. surely he has his ways.

as the attention switches from jackson to mark, the demonic man grins again.

"ah, mark tuan", he says, acting way too happy and way too casual about this whole thing. "or should i say yi eun? no one calls you that, though. not since you blew up your family home and killed that nanny... a shame that your parents disowned you, really, i think you could have turned into a great warlock with the right support..."

it's obvious that he's trying to intimidate them by casually letting it slip how well he's done his research, but from what bambam can tell, the others are just as determined to not show that it's working. if bambam wasn't as close with them as he is, he wouldn't have known it affected them at all.

the demon lets his eyes drift over the group, his expression unwavering until his gaze lands on bambam and he raises his eyebrows.

"i know your father", he speaks slowly, as if trying to make sure that they all catch every single word. "and i know your siblings too. baby, beer, bank... they're decent demons. nowhere near my level, though."

bambam tries to stay completely still under his gaze. jaebum and jinyoung still haven't made any move to show how they're gonna get out of this, but as he waits for something to happen, he tries his best to do like hyungs and not let the man get to him.

the older demon inspects him. in all honesty, bambam hadn't even known he has any siblings, doesn't know anything about his birth family, but he's not interested. they're demons, and supposedly all grew up in hell, while bambam's grown up on earth with the kindest family he can imagine. they come from two different worlds.

this demon seems to think he's interested, however, as he continues with a hum.

"you could probably become powerful with the right training. but again, your mindset is all wrong... i assume these people have you brainwashed by now. they've put you on the wrong path, raised you as human-like as possible. it's not fit for a demon to live that way. they've done with you just like my wife did with him."

bambam can't tell what he's trying to achieve by saying this, but at the last sentence, he flinches. was that... did the man just reference yugyeom? that has to be it, right? yugyeom was basically raised like a human, all thanks to his mom who kept him hidden from this dumb dude.

before the man can continue, jinyoung takes a step forward, using his vampiric speed so that jaebum doesn't get a chance to hold him back. he stares defiantly up at the demon in front of them, no sign of fear in his expression.

"you should leave." there's ice in his voice, a coldness bambam has never heard from his hyung before this moment. "you have a kingdom to get back to, right?"

a kingdom? wait. could this demon, yugyeom's dad, be some sort of prince of hell?

understanding dawns on the other members' faces, and bambam assumes that his guess is right. yugyeom's dad is royalty in hell, one of the rulers down there.

that's… cool?

bambam doesn't notice a change, but next to him, youngjae suddenly sprints forward, jumping in front of jinyoung. the vampire gets distracted by the faery boy and doesn't notice the beam of light that shoots out from the demon before them, aimed straight at him... except, instead of hitting jinyoung, it hits youngjae.

jinyoung is kneeling down before the boy even hits the ground.

bambam can't recall ever hearing mark scream. the warlock rarely raises his voice, even though it's happened several times before, but he's never heard him scream.

the scream he lets out now is filled with pure agony, the sound accompanied by glowing hands. bambam's brain is still catching up with what's going on when jackson pulls him aside just in time for mark to release his powers, and a hot pulse goes out through the air from where he's standing. his eyes are glowing.

bambam shudders as the hot air passes through him, but it soon becomes clear that most of the heat is aimed forward, toward the demon, whose eyes are still on jinyoung and youngjae on the ground. he's unprepared for the attack.

the man stumbles and falls back, hood going back up to cover his face. bambam doesn't know what happens to him after that, but has no time to care as he rushes forward toward his best friend, his brother.

jinyoung has a hand under youngjae's head, holding it up. that's the first thing bambam notices.

the second sight almost makes him throw up. dark blood pools in the center of youngjae's sweatshirt, red and disgusting and absolutely horrifying. the faery has his eyes closed, but he's still breathing, though it sounds more like he's attempting to do it underwater.

at some point, mark has also run up to youngjae, and he now sits with both hands over the open wound on youngjae's body. he's mumbling quietly to himself, but based on the light that radiates from his hands, it must be spells. healing spells.

bambam is staring down at youngjae's pale face when he sees a blinding light out the corner of his eye. he turns his head up, prepared to defend them with whatever ounce of power he can muster at the moment, but stops upon realizing that it's not yugyeom's dad this time.

inside the blinding light is the shape of a boy, and next to him is a woman.

bambam shields his eyes.


yugyeom's only been inside the bright light for half a second when he feels more than sees as another being draws closer, and then there's a hand holding his own. he doesn't speak, doesn't even turn his head, but still knows exactly who it is. yugyeom smiles.

he imagines the park inside his mind, and not even a moment later, there's grass spreading out underneath him, and just a bit further in front is a cluster of boys gathered on the ground. yugyeom doesn't have time to think about what they're doing before he's landing softly, still holding his mother's hand.

they look up as he lands. all of them except mark, who has his back turned to him, and youngjae, who's... oh shit.

"youngjae!" yugyeom exclaims, letting go of his mother's hand to rush forward. he practically falls to his knees as his bad ankle seems to give up on carrying him any longer, but at least he gets to them before that. he's here with them. finally. and if he's lucky, this is the last time he'll have to reunite with them.

it's clear that the others want to talk to him, make sure he's okay, but he can't give them his attention right now. not with the blood that's slowly seeping through youngjae's shirt, leaving him looking paler than the vampire among them.

mark isn't mumbling anymore, but his hands are still glowing and hovering above youngjae's chest as he tries to fix what's wrong.

yugyeom sees it immediately: the injury is fatal. it was inflicted by a demonic power, a strong one, and considering that's what caused the wound, yugyeom can tell that mark won't be able to heal it. his healing spell can't overpower his dad's dark magic.

there is one way to do it, though.

"move aside, i'm gonna try to save him", yugyeom speaks, and is surprised by how steady his own voice sounds. mark glances up at him in hesitance, but after seeing the expression on yugyeom's face, his eyes soften and he nods. he trust him. even after everything that's happened, he trusts yugyeom enough to move aside and give him space to do whatever he needs to do. it makes yugyeom's insides warm.

he can't focus on that right now. instead, he rubs his hands against each other, feeling the warmth and hearing the trickle of electricity before holding them out over youngjae, right where mark's hands were a few moments earlier.

mark dutifully watches as yugyeom works, as does jinyoung. he kind of has to, considering he's made himself stuck under youngjae, holding the boy's head up while also having half the faery on his lap.

bambam is staring at yugyeom. the light from his hands shine on his face in a way that pronounces his way too prominent cheekbones. his skin is more dull than when he left, and bambam can see bruises on his collarbones, disappearing underneath the fabric of his shirt. he doesn't even want to imagine what shape the rest of the nephilim's body is in.

jaebum and jackson have both stood up again and are currently looking at the couple standing behind the backs of mark and yugyeom.

the demon is back on his feet, but his attention isn't on them anymore. no, he's occupied with the woman that arrived with yugyeom.

her whole appearance has an ethereal glow to it, and it doesn't take a genius to figure out why that is: she's an angel. considering the fact that she arrived with yugyeom, the two boys can guess who she is, more than just a random angel. she's his mother.

"jinyoung", her voice is surprisingly soft, considering that she's speaking to a demon. "you have to let him go."

though the demon seems completely entranced by her presence, her words have another effect on him.

"no." his tone isn't as heated as it was previously. "no, i can't just..."

"let him go, jinyoung-ah", she whispers, and the man closes his eyes with a pained expression. "you have to let him go."

"he... he can't, i can't just..."

the angel places a hand over his face as he trails off, and the man lets out a small breath, lifting his own hand to put it over hers. it's a strange sight. he's dressed from head to toe in black, while the woman is wearing a white dress, plus the fact that she seems to be quite literally glowing. they're opposites in every way.

"you won't come for him again", the woman whispers, but there's an added intensity behind these words. jaebum and jackson don't get any time to ponder that, because as soon as she speaks, the light around her is back, this time enveloping the man as well.

the two boys have to turn their eyes away to avoid going blind, and when they turn back, the couple is gone. they both blink a few times in shock. then, all the events of today come rushing back, and they hurriedly turn to the group sitting right by their feet on the ground.

yugyeom is panting, hands held over youngjae's body, but the boy still has his eyes closed. at least there doesn't seem to be any more blood coming out of the wound, but he also doesn't seem to be waking up.

jinyoung puts his free hand over youngjae's cheek, the expression on his face tense as he speaks up.

"he's not breathing", jinyoung says. "i can't hear his heartbeat anymore."

sometimes his enhanced hearing is annoying, but in moments like this, it's the only way to know if things are working as they should.

before any of them have time to panic over that, yugyeom says in between two breaths,

"i know, i'm working on it."

he closes his eyes in concentration, and they all simultaneously hold their breath. the silence between them is almost painful, as is the anticipation as they wait for their brother to wake up.

jackson is fully prepared to start bawling when they suddenly hear a low gasp. in all honesty, he's not sure if he imagined it, it was so quiet. jinyoung perks up.

"did you hear it?"

his question is directed at jackson, the only other one with enhanced hearing (though it's not as enhanced as the vampire's) and the werewolf nods. jaebum looks between them.

"what did you hear?"

jinyoung looks down at youngjae's face again.

"he gasped... his heartbeat, i can hear it again. i can hear his breathing."

they all let out the air they were collectively holding just as yugyeom slumps back, his own breathing heavy. his eyes are still scrunched closed.

"yugyeom?" bambam asks. "are you okay?"

he wants more than anything to reach out and hold the boy, hold his boyfriend, make sure that he's really here and that he's not going anywhere, but he also doesn't want to overwhelm yugyeom. healing youngjae has probably made him exhausted, and he wasn't in the best shape before that, either.

the angelic boy opens his eyes to look at bambam, and the older isn't sure if he imagines the smile on his face. he can't possibly smile in a situation like this, could he?

"i'm fine. i promised you i wouldn't give up, didn't i?"

Chapter Text

after hugging yugyeom for what feels like three hours, mark stands up and teleports both him and youngjae back to the house, but not before asking if yugyeom is absolutely sure that he doesn't want to come with them. the maknae simply shakes his head no. he's still waiting for someone else to get here.

once mark and youngjae are gone, the others all turn to look at yugyeom, trying to ignore the trails of blood on the grass between them.

"yugyeom..." jinyoung begins, but he doesn't seem to know what to say. the younger boy gives him a smile.

"hyung", he replies in the same tone of voice before going back to being serious. "i know you all wanna ask if i'm okay, and i promise i'll explain that later, because no, i'm not okay, but i think i will be. i'll tell you everything about what happened, but not right now."

"was that your mom?" jackson decides to ask, and at this, yugyeom perks up.

"yeah! she came to me when i was teleporting here. i still haven't talked to her, though... that's why i'm waiting for her to come back."

jaebum isn't sure if he wants to ask what he's about to ask, but still does it, because he has to know.

"are... are you sure she's gonna come back, yugyeom-ah? she left with your dad, and i've heard he can be pretty horrible..."

luckily, yugyeom's already thought of this, and the question doesn't bother him the way jaebum was worried it might. instead, the boy tilts his head back to look at the sky.

"yeah", he speaks softly. "i mean, i'm sure of it. she's basically immortal."

they don't have time for any more questions before an annoyingly familiar bright light returns in the same spot it was some minutes ago, when yugyeom's mom left with his demon dad. this time, they're all prepared, and keep their heads turned away for the seconds it take for the light to disappear. once it does, they all turn back to face the new arrival.

yugyeom's mother looks just as heavenly as she did the first time. her face is filled with worry, however, as her eyes dart over their faces to find her son. once she does, she hurries forward, scoffing slightly as she sees that he's okay. or, as okay as you can expect him to be after everything that went down.

"i'm not immortal, i'm eternal", she somehow knows exactly what yugyeom said just before she got here. maybe they would be surprised by that if it wasn't such a normal thing, given their daily encounters with the supernatural.

yugyeom holds his hands out for her, too weak to stand up right now, and his mother crouches in front of him.

the other four boys watch as yugyeom and his mother hug. they're mumbling something to each other, but the two non-enhanced boys can't hear, and jackson puts all of his focus on listening to the leaves move in the breeze. jinyoung's hearing is good enough that he'll hear everything they say even without trying to, but he simply smiles down at the ground.

when they pull apart, yugyeom's mother turns to them with a smile almost as blinding as her teleportation magic.

"i owe you boys so much", she begins, but then she seems to realize something. "oh, hang on! i haven't even introduced myself properly. my name is jihyo, and i'm yugyeom's mother, as you may know. it's a pleasure to meet all of you."

the contrast between her saying that, and yugyeom's father saying the same thing, is obvious. she genuinely means what she says. the members wonder briefly how someone like her could ever end up with someone like him, but they don't dwell on it.

"it's a pleasure to meet you, as well", jinyoung says. "and you don't really owe us anything. we're with yugyeom because he means a lot to us. i hope you know that."

jihyo smiles.

"i do know that, and i'm eternally grateful for it. you've been a better family to him than his own parents could ever be…"

yugyeom looks sad at this, and after a quick look at the maknae, jaebum speaks up.

"no, no, i'm sure you would have been a great mother if-"

"if i had actually been there", jihyo finishes for him, though there's no malice in her voice, only a soft sadness. "yeah, i know. i wish i could be, but i can't. i can't spend more time on earth than i already do, and i'm pretty sure gyeom wouldn't wanna live in heaven."

yugyeom gives a small shake of his head at this.

"don't worry, we'll look after him", jackson says.

jihyo smiles.

"i don't doubt it."

then, she lifts her hands, and the park they're in is suddenly exchanged for a white light. when they blink their eyes open again, they're sitting and standing inside the living room of their house. there's no sight of jihyo, but yugyeom has his hand closed and a small smile on his face.

for the first time in a long while, they allow themselves to believe that everything will be okay.

Youngjae: aww <3

jacks: oof that was sweet but why are you phrasing it as if it's thanksgiving? lmao
jacks: we're in, like the opposite part of the year

Gyeom: because i just realized how thankful i am that i met you guys! and you need to know it

Jinyoung: i'm very thankful for meeting you too gyeom

Mark: so am i

Gyeom: aww thank you so much guys <3
Gyeom: also i need money for a new backpack cause i lost mine

JB: again???

Gyeom: yes

jacks: oh so you were just buttering us up to ask for money
jacks: wOw, ok

Gyeom: no i really do care about you and i'm really grateful for meeting everyone here!
Gyeom: honestly if i hadn't met you i think i'd still be stuck in hell with my evil sperm donor...
Gyeom: probably forever...

JB: ok i'll buy you a backpack

Gyeom: yay! thanks dad :D
Gyeom: also jinyoung hyung can expect a call from my teacher sometime later today

Mark: …do i even wanna know

Jinyoung: and why is that, yugyeom?

Gyeom: i said something inappropriate
Gyeom: but in my defense, i didn't know that she was standing behind me!

jacks: what did you say??

Gyeom: …
Gyeom: "we are going to the candy shop to deepthroat some dildo lollipops"


jacks: LMAO

bambam: one day i will marry him

Mark: first of all, wtf
Mark: second of all, lol

Jinyoung: …someone save me from these children
Jinyoung: i never should have adopted any of them

bambam: aww don't lie, you love us!

Jinyoung: sadly, you're right, i do
Jinyoung: but if i wasn't so emotionally attached i would probably get rid of you all

Youngjae: even me? :o

Jinyoung: even you.

jacks: *insert the surprised pikachu meme*

JB: did you know that meme is over a year old

jacks: …i did not…
jacks: wait when did time pass

Jinyoung: i think that's the first time you've capitalized in your entire life

JB: sounds plausible
JB: but whatever i'm going to buy a backpack
JB: gyeom, you coming?

Gyeom: yes i'm omw!

JB: if everyone could just try not to die while i'm gone then that would be greatly appreciated

Jinyoung: bold of you to assume i'm not already dead

Youngjae: rip in peace
Youngjae: aka rest in peace in peace

Jinyoung: sorry but I Will Not rest in peace, and you can only blame yourselves for that
Jinyoung: there's no peace in my life when you guys are around

Youngjae: amen

Mark: …what

JB: okay bye we're leaving now

jacks: wAIT

jacks: smh, the mistreatment

Gyeom: bye hyungs :p
