    Summary

    Taehyun doesn't have a lot of experience in bed. Beomgyu offers to help him out.

     

    He thought about it and came to two conclusions: His inexperience was impacting his life; he wanted to take Beomgyu up on his offer.

     

    He decided to ask days before he actually got enough liquid courage to do it. He had to pull a mildly tipsy, incredibly sexy Beomgyu out of the throng of people he was dancing with and into a quiet corner of the club in order to ask though. He was surprised that Beomgyu followed him so willingly. Beomgyu was dressed to get laid and that usually meant that he didn’t hang around Taehyun. Maybe it was different when Taehyun came and got him. He didn’t know. He’d never really done that before.

    I really enjoyed this, it's a great read. Funny and sweet and you get so much of the TXTies personalities shining through the banter and the little moments between them and their friends. It gave me really strong feelings and I was so invested in Taehyun and Beomgyu in finally realising they love each other and are in a relationship that's more than convenience or teaching or being good friends. I also just really loved their honesty with each other, the way they talk through things and find the balance even with their differences.

    Summary

    Soobin gets his heart broken, but sometimes that's just the beginning of the story. He throws himself into dating various idols, but maybe he should be looking a little closer to home?

     

    It still wasn't easy, and sometimes he just needed to wallow a little in his feelings. Somehow Beomgyu turned into the person he did it with. He knew Kai wanted to help, but he'd seen the deer in the headlights expression Kai got the one time he tried, so Soobin decided to be merciful. Maybe Taehyun could help but Taehyun would care too much. Soobin didn't really need that anymore. He needed someone to listen and then kick his ass. Beomgyu turned out to be surprisingly good at that.

     

    "I don't know why you keep underestimating me," Beomgyu huffed, but softly, since Odi was deigning to be held in his hands for once. Beomgyu looked down at the tiny hedgehog with a besotted expression. "I'm Beomgyu, after all."

    This is so good! I enjoyed this so much, it's such a great read - so many quotable, funny bits while also managing to give me all the feeeeeelings.

    I love this, I cackled throughout at Hongjoong's mental flailing about Wooyoung, and the poor group and their different responses to him. The ending is so sweet. <3 I love how clear it comes through that Ateez loves looking after each other but also teasing each other!

    Bookmarker's Notes

    For all the (source-compliant) violence and sadness, this story is lovely - about women finally escaping the shackles (physical or otherwise) of unscrupulous men in their lives. Pop weaves all the little details from the MV so well into the story, building worlds from the smallest moments.

    Summary

    Rong Siqi checks into the hotel and finds R-Red's Ya Qi lounging on his bed, wearing what appears to be only a bathrobe, his hair still wet as though he's just slithered out from the infinity pool. "Um," Rong Siqi says. "I think you have the wrong room?"

    Bookmarker's Notes

    I was very amused by this, a really sweet and funny spin off for some side characters from the cnovel.

    I beta’d this one - here is a glimpse of an important beta note I left about Rong Siqi: “ He’s so noble and he’s so stupid!!!” I stand by this. Rong Siqi has friends other than Bai Lang! That’s why he’s given all these gifts to Ya Qi and gotten him and his group a job as the spokespeople for his family’s airline. Surely his friendly intent would be obvious, right?
