One day, when Jumin is arguing with Zen why he couldn’t call him Hyun if everyone is using their own name now than Seven has asked everyone to use his real name, Saeyoung.
“All I’m saying, Zen, is maybe you could let the RFA members call you Hyun instead of Zen”.
“I don’t want to! Everyone’s used to call me Zen anyways”
“I like to use people’s actual names”
“But you call me Liz lol” you intervene.
“Isn’t… your name Liz?”
“Well, it’s actually Elizabeth”
It was probably the second biggest thing to happen in the chatroom.
Jaehee is speechless. Then, she asks you if you’ve ever feel uncomfortable with no one using you your real name. You tell her it’s really okay, you actually prefer being called Liz.
Jumin congratulates you on having such a beautiful name and says there should be no problem because you’re Elizabeth while his cat is Elizabeth the 3rd. It’s simple.
Zen starts sneezing. After he calms down, he politely asks if he can still call you Liz.
Saeyoung changes your screen name to “Elizabeth the 1st”, then to “Ellie #2”, then to “Ellie without whiskers” and so on.
Yoosung is shocked but laughs at the reaction of everyone else. Prefers to call you Lizzie like he did before.
Bonus for Jumin: He’s very concerned when he receives a call from his bodyguards informing him Elizabeth the 3rd was back home from the vet. He’s confused as to why she was sent there when he left no instructions about taking her anywhere. After doing some digging, he finds out the guard who received the order “take Elizabeth to the doctor” took the wrong Elizabeth to the wrong doctor. This was later confirmed when he saw a text you had send him earlier: “thought Driver Kim was going to take me to my appointment :( nvm, took a cab, meet you at diner xx”. He’ll never admit it but one of the best things about marrying you was being able to call you his wife so no one could get the wrong idea ever again.
well, I’ll be writing longer route posts once I get motivated and figure out how the formatting. And stuff works BUT
Here’s some more general headcanons for this au and the different characters. This is basically the aesthetics of the routes instead of an actual “how the route goes” thing. Also a rating of how good of a parent they’d be
wish I could put a read more but tumblr mobile is a bitch.
☕️ JAEHEE ☕️
well, I think we all know jaehee has some major mom instincts (if you don’t believe me just take one look at her interactions with Yoosung. Or what happens when you say you haven’t eaten, but that applies to pretty much every character)
that doesn’t mean the initial distrust in her route disappears, it just means that she is very conflicted about whether she needs to be wary of this child or she wants to be their mother
so, jaehee is conflicted but also this child HIGHKEY is ready to thrown down and wants nothing more than to stick up for her
very concerned about where their parents are????
they tell her they can handle themselves. she just about has a heart attack because Child You Are A Baby.
10/10 mom, would recommend.
the age gap might be smaller here but they are still a Literal Child compared to him.
the Rika comparisons would be less creepy because this isn’t a person he is potentially romantically interested in, but still uncomfortable because.
this child doesn’t want to be compared to your dead cousin, yoosung.
highkey a big brother, he has not reached a dad level in his life yet.
he still gets blinded in an eye.
best for “wait I can be a good influence. don’t be like me.” moments.
10/10 Good Big Brother.
3/10 as a dad.
this boy is 100% ready to be a dad.
I mean, that’s just canon?
in his route normally he fantasizes about having kids with the MC like two days after meeting her irl
A Protective Boye
Jaehee, concerned people will think he has an illegitimate child: no child for u
Zen: this sign can’t stop me because I can’t read
100% dad material, let him ADOPT.
it’s got the Annie aesthetic
the bad ends probably have more of a coraline aesthetic
despite the fact that I Do Not Like jumin I believe he could be a good dad
also has room for cat - child - dad cuddle piles so that’s ALWAYS a plus
8/10. I’d watch a remake of annie where he’s the dad.
suddenly his route is even sadder
I 100% believe he’d be quick to have a protective instinct over this child purely because of
1. His own brother being younger
2. His own Lost Childhood
later in his route he’d have more incentive to push them away, but I also imagine he’d be a bit softer
not to say he isn’t the Way That He Is, it’s just less of him being a Total Jerk All The Time and more like an exhausted parent
not the greatest influence, but he’s trying
I’m torn here, because boy has Big Dad Energy but he also has issues
he’s doing his best
he’s already p much canonly the rfa Dad
also even MORE incentive to protect them from rika and the general mint eye wildness because child
“I can’t take care of you.” “I know.”
also the jumin lovers out there can imagine him taking care of them for v while he’s figuring his shit out
Points reduced for making me cry
7/10. good, but also sort of a mess.
TBA when I’ve played his route
I could make a whole post about my hcs for him and my whole backstory BUT instead I’ll put it this way
100% the found family parent that tries Very Hard not to get attached and outright refuses to accept their attachment
definitely attached though
10/10, found family parents in denial are the greatest.
I had posted this a while ago but deleted it. It’s up again, hope you like it! Remember to stay safe during this time. Also, please keep in mind it’s okay not be okay during this global health crisis. There isn’t just one way to deal with it, take your time <3
trigger warning: mentions of anxiety.
oh, this boy is scared
like, legit scared
he started isolating himself way before it was mandatory and washing his hands
plays his videogames to stop thinking about it. and it works really well until you have to stay home as well and now he discovered being with you is even more comforting
yoosung is totally okay with the quarantine btw, he could stay for days in his room and it’d be fine
it’s the idea of you, his friends or family getting sick that frightens him
you take him out of his room to do some exercises in the living room once in a while, to help both of you keep active
okay i’m actually worried about him
he does exercise regularly and since you’re living with him, he’s been eating healthier so he’s not exactly in a risk group
but he’s an actor
and all of the productions have shut down
he has savings, so he’s not going to go into bankrupt but it has seriously affected his economy
you are working from home, so you try to tell him it’s going to be okay, you’re in this together
but he’s not handling these news well. he’s really sad about it.
every time you’re not working, you try to cheer him up. you practice some lines with him so he keeps his routines, work out with him (even if you always end up sore, but if it makes him happy, so be it), and do movie marathons that end up in sweet kisses
he’s not really in the mood to wake up the beast but it’s okay. you just want him to feel better
you pamper him with kisses and homemade food all day, everyday
baehee is ready for everything
she’s not into physical contact so she’s okay with saying her hellos and goodbyes from afar
you’re the exception and will always be
she’s working from home and has a nice schedule
finds she has more time now that she works from home and doesn’t have to do extra activities for Jumin
is pretty well informed about the outbreak. she doesn’t panic. she doesn’t hoard toilet paper or food.
in fact, she’s the one that calms you down when she starts getting agitated
loves working on her laptop with you reading by her side or taking a nap
bought vitamins for her an mc and they’re taking them just so you can feel better about their health
Jumin’s first concern was if cats could get sick. once he was told animals couldn’t catch it, he felt a little bit relieved. most of his clients said it was just a bad flu, so he had nothing to worry about.
that was until Jaehee told him it wasn’t like that. and that one of the risk groups was people with respiratory conditions
like you and your asthma
C&R closed the very same day. He would be paying his employees all their benefits and most of them could work from home. The ones that couldn’t would still get their pay at the end of the month.
Jumin had the apartment so cleaned up it was almost sterile
he even bought a nebulizer.
“honey, my asthma hasn’t gone that bad in ages, we don’t need one”
he also works from home, just to keep tabs with everything going on in C&R
is very afraid of you having caught the virus somewhere. even if they went on lockdown, what if you caught it elsewhere days ago?
you calm him down, assuring him you feel fine and since they took all the measures, they will be okay
Elizabeth the 3rd is the happiest because both you and Jumin are home all day long
i’m so sorry but jumin bought food for a whole month, you try to tell him it’s not necessary but he’s worried as fuck, okay?
at first, Jumin works basically all day long and locks himself in his home office
one time you visit him in his office, Elizabeth the 3rd in your arms, and you tell him you both miss him. that he should also use this time to rest a bit and spend time with his wife
jumin and you talk every night with a glass of wine, looking outside the huge window of his living room (without opening it, he’s stil a bit scared) and making plans when everything comes to an end
you are the one who’s worried sick because he doesn’t eat well, doesn’t sleep well so his defenses must be on the floor
he takes it lightly and send you tons of memes about the virus
“coronavirus can’t kill me bc i died the day jumin took elly away from me”
one day, you break down and cry
he stops at the moment
you tell him how worried you are for him, that you would lose it if he got sick because of how much he means to you. that he needs to eat better and have better habits
so he makes a compromise and starts eating better. he even tries and cooks for the both of you once
like yoosung he’s normally on lockdown except on unique occasions, so he doesn’t get stressed about not going out
but you get stressed about not going out, so he invents games and scavenger hunts around the house so you both can have fun <3
has to close the flower shop
he gets really worried because you’re on lockdown and he can’t go and water his plants. you tell him you both could go and spent the quarantine there, but he tells you it’s not a good idea to sleep around plants
it’s not a complete lockdown, but the order is to only leave the house for food or medicines, so going there to take care of his plants daily is not an option
he feels sad about it, even if he doesn’t say so
the day before the lockdown, you surprise him bringing some of his favorite plants to the house. you can keep them in the balcony for this time
he’s so happy
you spend the days watching movies together, taking naps and you also decide to teach him how to cook your favorite dishes. he teaches you how to prepare some desserts as well
snuggling close is the best and now that you can do it for even longer periods of time makes you really happy
you both are a little bit worried about everything that’s going on, but you make sure to keep in touch with other people
you drag saeran to videocalls with other rfa members
he’s not amused
but he really likes when you’re listening to Yoosung talk, or watching how Zen and Jumin keep bickering while taking his hand in yours and idly placing a kiss on it, while everyone’s watching
seven always makes “awww” noises but he just ignores him even tho it does make him really happy
Hello! Could you do the RFA+V and searan reaction to an MC that majors I fashion design and is excellent at designing clothes Please & thank you 💕
I love this! I have a friend who designs her own clothes and I admire her so much for it 🥰 If someone is studying this, please know you’re wonderfully creative and you help out people like me who struggle to find a style lol
This boy will ask you to try and recreate some of the costumes of the LOLOL characters, no doubt about it
But one day, you surprised with with a jacket inspired in the clothing of his favourite LOLOL character and he just loses it
Both of you can spend hours doing what you love: playing videogames and designing in a notepad
Say hello to your new model
He’s tall, he’s fit and he’s absolutely in love with the idea with trying new clothes
a bit disappointed when he learns he can’t keep them
This man likes fashion, have you seen his clothes? He can rock white, black, pink (Zen is gorgeous in pink), ANY color.
He also likes the attention of you taking his measures or asking him to try something so you can add some final touches. Most of them are for your projects, but you promise one day
He’ll try to land you a gig in any of the plays he’s rehearsing, you could always learn a thing or two about costume design and it would look great on your resumé
Be prepared for runway shows, starring: The one and only Zen
You thought she wasn’t really interested in high fashion
But Baehee knows a lot. Even as much as you do
She may wear office clothes most days, but she had to help dress Jumin’s dates (ehem– young women Jumin’s dad forced him to go to an event with) and she had to find the best. Mr. Chairman orders.
So you both like to talk about new releases and watch tv specials together
Jaehee sometimes pauses the tv at a good time so you can quickly take notes or draw something for future reference
She’s just the most supportive girlfriend out there ok
Will immediately provide learning opportunities, such as private lessons if you need them
If you’re uncomfortable, he tells you you can talk with the personal tailor he has. You agree.
The next time the tailor comes home to take measures of Jumin (who has gained just a couple of pounds and it’s definitely NOT because you love baking hehe), you end up talking to the old man, who has years of experience. He tells you a couple of interesting things but has to leave soon because he has another client. You insist he stays longer next time and give him one of the muffins you made on his way out, to which he’s really surprised. None of the wives of his clients are like that
Jumin will always compliment your work. Whenever you’re feeling a little down, you show him your designs on your notebooks and he bathes you in compliments.
He wants you to succeed and offers all the help he can give you now or in the future for that
Will try out anything you ask him to, even if it’s just for the giggles
Not opposed to wearing skirts if you need to fix them hem or something quick and it’s easier on someone else
will try and keep the skirt
Sometimes you draw beside him while he’s hacking on his computers, so you can keep each other company
Like for Yoosung, you decide to make a feminine costume for him. It’s so good he decides to use it on Zen. He ‘accidentally’ meets him in the supermarket, flirts with him and actually gets his number. You can still remember Zen’s face when he finally sees you, bending over with laughter at the end of the hall and Saeyoung’s golden eyes shining
When you go out to buy new fabrics or inspire yourself, you like to go with him. But he’s not good with crowds, so he prefers to stay in a garden shop, admiring all their new plants while you buy everything you need. When you’re over, you both go to get some ice cream.
He has a flower shop. Most afternoons, you like to stay there and sketch a little while keeping him company. He really likes that you both can be in silence and still share a moment
When you’re nervous about a project, you show him your drawings. He looks at them thoroughly and says he really likes them. He even says he could wear one of those which is saying a lot because Saeran’s clothes are THE BEST
Will definitely gift you special drawing pencils or sketchpads
Another old piece that I edited! @katsukiboom requested this almost a year ago haha!
Hyun Ryu (Zen):
Raising his head above water, Zen scouted the beach, glancing from left to right as he waited for anything– even an animal– to appear. No luck.
He sighed while his mouth was underwater, which created bubbles that floated towards the surface. Boredom was taking over and he despised it. He lifted himself up onto a nearby rock and closed his eyes, sunbathing while the stone gave his back warmth. After a few minutes of having his eyes shut, they immediately snapped open.
Nothing seemed to cure his boredom.
Zen’s eyebrows furrowed as he took another glance at the beach. It was still vacant. “Of course the minute I get Jumin off my back, no one is here.” He grumbled.
Feeling the sand through your toes, you shuffled your feet along the shoreline, your mind occupied with thoughts and an obvious scowl presenting itself on your features. The beach being empty did not help the feeling in your chest. There was just too much on your mind. You kicked your foot into the sand sending the particles flying everywhere only for them to sink back into the ground. Your fists clenched, “I hate this.”
Suddenly feeling a presence, he looked up to see someone walking slowly on the sand. Sighing with relief, he said, “Finally.” Slipping into the water, he dove deeper to prevent himself from being caught by watchful eyes.
Mermaids and mermen alike have the ability to see into the hearts of humans. Their desires being exposed for the mercreatures to see.
He glanced at you, expecting to see a normal human heart with normal human desires; money, love, etc. What he saw made his eyes widen: a heart penetrated with darkness and pain. It was grey and grim. Gazing at your heart alone put goose pimples on his arms and a shiver down his spine.
Zen’s hands started to shake, he was completely caught off guard. But the feeling of curiosity began to pull him closer, fear pulling him backwards.
Moments after his mind and heart began to quarrel, Zen found himself swimming closer. Perhaps if he could drive you away from the beach, the others wouldn’t have to worry about a corrupted heart?
“Hello!” Abruptly hearing a voice made you physically jump. A quizzical look was formed on your face, you heard a chuckle.
“Over here, look down~!”
Following the voice’s directions, you tilted your head downward. What you saw made your mouth agape: aman whose chest was on the sand, his behind in the water and not easily seen. He had long white hair. Almost too white, it could rival the clouds! It fell down his shoulders with grace. You could feel your cheeks flush.
“Hello,” You mumbled, tilting your head curiously, your eyes peered in the water trying to find his legs. “Why are you in the water?”
The man gave you a wink and a smirk. “I’m out swimming, what are you doing on this beach alone?”
“Thinking.” You replied. Behind that smug grin Zen was giving you, he could feel his heart pound.
They seem perfectly normal, yet their desires are so-
“What’s your name?” You asked him, interrupting his train of thought.
“Oh, Zen. Yours?” He gave you a flirtatious look, your cheeks began to burn.
“Well, (Y/n), you seem awfully lonely. Want some company?”
“Company with a stranger who I just met?” You scrunched your nose, “No thanks.”
“Awe, stranger or not. It’s nice to have someone to talk to.” Zen told you.
As the conversation continued, Zen’s gaze kept shifting from your face to your heart. Now that he was closer to you, he could see it much more clearly. Your desires screamed at him;
“My mother is dying, and I can’t watch her suffer anymore. Is it a good idea to pull the plug? She is still alive, but she is in so much pain…would it be better if she was taken off life support?”
Your desire didn’t match the color of your heart. It was innocent, almost. Zen was sure you were planning to murder someone with that grisly color. He began to feel pity squeezing at his chest.
You squinted at him, “Why do you keep looking at my chest?”
Zen began to squirm at your stare, “O-Oh! Nothing, I was just–uh–”
You had to bite your tongue to prevent a giggle fit. “I’m joking. It’s nice to meet you, Zen. I guess I won’t mind some company.”
Yoosung volunteers to be a babysitter if he has the time, he adores his kids and would die for them if necessary. While he has his act together at work, while babysitting it’s a whole other story. It can be a chaotic mess, one time you walked into your home only to see the walls covered in baby food because your husband couldn’t get your one year old to eat anything. (After cleaning the mess of globs and chunks, they ate again.) It’s risky to leave him alone with your children, but in the end it all works out.
Everybody was feeling good about holding another successful RFA party and were gathered around for the after party, sharing drinks and casual chatter. All was well — until Seven came running into the hall with you in hot pursuit.
“Everyone, I’d like to have your attention please! I have an important announcement to make!” Seven excitedly announced, keeping all eyes on him. From the way you were trying to wrestle him out of his messenger duties though, they suspected he was up to some mischief again.
“Do you guys know how talented MC is? I was hacking into— oh wait, no… what I meant was, I was leisurely browsing MeTube when I came across a video of MC expertly dancing to the tune of G—-mmmpppphhhhfff!!!”
You thought you had successfully cut him off, but you suddenly heard your cheerful teenager voice drifting out from the speakers and the projector screen rolled down, showing you from xx years ago. “Hey everyone! This is MC and today….” You could only look on in horror as all eyes were fixed expectantly on the giant screen and the music started…
This was MC….? THEIR MC???
He’d seen most of his classmates in high school do this before, but he never thought it was going to be this CUTE
The song was cute to begin with, but add MC dancing to it? YES. HELL YESSSS
Quietly danced along with his hands, even mouthed some of the lyrics as he fondly watched
His love meter just increased beyond 1000%
Wants to comfort you, but he also has to control the beast™
Faintly remembers singing this to someone, but he doesn’t remember when it happened
Actively sang along and danced in his seat
Is that…. MC?
Knows how embarrassed you are right now, but can’t help but smile from ear to ear
Approaches you and provides emotional support
Well… at least that was the intention.
Really just wanted to hug you because she can’t get enough of your cuteness
Damage over 9000
Anymore and his heart would explode from watching the video
Keeps sneaking glances at Jaehee and you
When was she going to let you go? He wanted in too *pout*
He wasn’t too familiar with the song, but nevermind that, what matters is that he likes you more now
Was of the opinion that Luciel shouldn’t have shown the video if you were so against it
Took it back immediately when he saw you dance
Yes, this is definitely meant to be shared
He’d seen other videos of this on the internet when the craze first started
But so far this was his favorite
Never noticed that he was smiling the whole time
Unconsciously made small dancing gestures with his hands and hummed along
All the scratches and punches you inflicted on him earlier was so worth it
Number one fan
His eyes and soul were instantly cleansed the first time he saw it
Actually called you and asked permission if he could show this to the other RFA members when he found it
You were busy then, so you absently said yes
Is plotting to have the video recognized as a national treasure plzsomebodystophimasdfghjkl
Jihyun / V
Isn’t really into pop culture trends but was faintly aware that this was a thing some years back
Loves that he could see your past self like this
Smiles at you whenever you make eye contact with him
Also one of the growing number of people who want to hug you, but Jaehee was monopolizing you
Even he was swaying along and softly clapping to the music
Wonders if he could get a copy of the video later
Bonus : Vanderwood
Was on security patrol when he heard your name and the nostalgic music started
Knew the song and dance steps by heart, but he’s not letting anyone know that
Had to take an early break just to watch
Even he wasn’t immune to the angel that was MC
Gave you a thumbs up when you glanced in his direction
Definitely count him in the increasing number of your fans
I love High School hcs with Zen, won’t lie. Hope you like this! ^^
ZEN’S BIRTHDAY SPECIAL
High School AU: April Fools’
hated that he had to put on a frown from the moment he entered the school that
his birthday, for fuck’s sake. It’s a day for him to get even more attention
than he usually does
oh, he gets a lot of attention, but… not for the reasons he would like to.
it’s also April Fools’ Day, so instead of gifts, sweet treats and hugs from girls,
he gets prank gifts, candy made out of cat food and wedgies from guys, ugh
he wasn’t in the best mood when he arrived, it was written all over his face
he hated this, specially because he spotted you in the hallway and all he
wanted was to be all sly and nice just to make you smile and blush like you
today he couldn’t, he needed to keep the straight face so people wouldn’t dare
to mess with him
watched as he found the little gift you placed on his desk before class started
and… scoffed, tossing it aside.
he kept doing this with all the small treats you tried to secretly hand him.
Like, you understand if he doesn’t like you, but… being rude doesn’t suit him
either… even though you felt like he was glancing at you at all the time you
caught eyes with him during class, at the lunch… pretty much… everytime you
wanted to look at his perfect face…
you were wrong… figures, he would never be interested in you, right? Look at
him! Yeah… this was stupid from the beginning… and to think you were planning
to confess and ask him out at the parking lot when he would find the note you
let at the seat of his bike and… HOLY FUCK! THE NOTE!
run to the parking lot and find your silly little note, whew… thank God he didn’t
you yelp when you hear his voice behind you, holding his helmet and looking at
you curiously. “What’s… going on…? What are you doing next to my bike?”
nothing, I… I…” “What is that?” he points to the piece of paper in your hands. “NOTHING!”
you quickly hide them behind your back.
I see… honestly, I was expecting pranks from everybody today, MC… except from
you…” Oh, he looks… disappointed, he looks… so hurt.
Why would this be a prank? Why would I ever pull a prank on you?” “Hum, because
that’s what everybody does on April Fools’? And I’m the favorite target since
it’s also my birthday?”
know it’s your birthday, Zen. I… could never forget it’s your birthday,
actually, it’s… so important to me I didn’t even remember it was also April
Fools’” you admit embarrassingly. Gosh…. Now he will think you must be really
very funny, and very original too. Congrats, MC.” “Zen, I’m serious! I… I
wanted you to have such a special day, since it’s a special day, it’s your day!
I…” your heart is beating so fast you fell breathless, so you just lower your
head and offer him your note
eyes you a little suspiciously, but… no, you look too real right now for this
to be a joke… so he takes the note.
it would make more sense if you had accepted my gifts…” he widens his eyes.
Gifts? You sent him gifts? Oh shit…
you really like me? Are you serious?” “I… dead serious.” You look at him with
feels his shoulders getting lighter. And even though he believes you, he can’t
help but laugh… in relief.
what’s so funny?” “It’s just… I was so prepared to have an awful day because of
the pranks, but… this day couldn’t end better, can’t believe the girl I like is
confessing to me right on my birthday…” he smiles and… there’s that Zen you
know, the Zen… you like… and likes you back? Is he joking? No, but… He doesn’t seem to like jokes on a day like this!
about your note… it says that you would ask me something if we met… well, I’m
here… what do you want to ask?” he walks towards you, and you’re feeling…
I… I…” ERROR, you just blush, trying not to drool at the way he looks at you.
smiles, how can you be so cute? “Can I go first, then? Would you like a ride on
my bike? I… know a place where they sell really good cake…”
just nod, still not believing this is actually happening.
he motions to get the extra helmet, you hold the sleeve of his jacket, driving
his attention back. “Hey, Zen? Happy Birthday…”
chuckles before grabbing your wrist and placing a quick peck in your hand. “Yes,
it will definitely be very happy for me.”
enjoys little moments like seeing people’s faces light up when he hands them
their cone or when they take the first bite of their ice cream
was a lot of trial and error in coming up with his own recipes, but he
different flavors are named after flowers
even made with the flowers he grows in his and mc’s garden, but it’s small and
he can’t grow much, so he only makes those special flavors for events and
watched tons of videos online to learn how to make flower shaped ice cream and
now he’s a PRO
look so beautiful, i just- i can’t describe it in words and i can’t draw, so
idk how to express how amazing his flower ice creams look omg
like dainty flower petals had gotten caught in the chilling wind, falling down
from the heavenly gardens of the azure sky. plush cotton coating them in
velvety down and feathery ice crystals. the petals end their journey in the
aromatic kitchen of a soft marshmallow boi and his precious squish to bloom and
manifest into a rich, creamy delicacy.

“Choi Saeran’s Crème de la Crème in the
Art-Making of Cream of the Ice”
a very real title of an article written by pen
This is the last prompt for the special day! Thank you all that read, commented, rebbloged and liked these, it was very fun to write for one of my favorite characters to celebrate 1 year of this blog. <3
1 YEAR ANNIVERSARY SPECIAL
CHARACTER DAY: SAERAN
Visiting MC’s family
so happy for meeting your family. Nervous, yes, but super happy!
your family, he finally gets to meet the ones who raised you to be such a good
and sweet person.
And very naïve, haven’t your parents ever told you not to go to a hidden
place in the mountains to test a game developed by a stranger?
chose his best clothes, checked his hair multiple times and rehearsed the
greetings over and over.
to meet you, sir, I’m-“ “They’re at it again.” Your father says with a tired
expression. “Oh… hello, boy.” BOY?
what’s happening?” he doesn’t even have to answer. Both you and Saeran listen
the yelling coming from inside.
was low, bro! Even for you, it was low!” “You never liked her, bro! You told me
yourself that you were with her just to make your ex jealousy!” “Yeah, but I
ended up liking her for real!” “Should’ve told her before, you piece of shit!” “You’re
an asshole, dude!”
my brothers, Saeran…” you say with a small voice, completely embarrassed.
should we leave and go back another day?” he asks you carefully. “Nah, let’s
just get it in.”
is super awkward with the brothers making passive aggressive comments as they
glare at each other.
apparently it’s a ‘bring your date’ family reunion. Why didn’t you bring your
girlfriend, bro? Were you feeling guilty for stabbing my back?” “No, I just
didn’t want her to throw up looking at your ugly face.”
if mom was alive, she would…” “Please, let’s not involve your mother on this?
So… Saeran, right? What do you do for a living?”
work with computers, but I’m… trying to change careers, I… want to work with
plants in the future.” “Yes, he’s very good with plants.” You hold his hand and
smile. Whew… so far still good.
do you plan to start?” “Hum… right after I meet my brother, we have… unsolved
Did your brother steal your girl and acted like it was no big deal?” “No, he
just left when we were teenagers to start working for a shady intelligence agency
to make sure I would have a better life with my new guardians after our mom
abused us physically and verbally, but… my guardians weren’t exactly great
either, the woman started a cult that brainwashed me and made me hate my
brother, and the guy tried to help me, but only made a bigger mess, now my
brother is missing because our father, who’s in jail now, kidnapped him, but we
don’t know if he succeeded or not, so now I’m looking for my brother so we can
make amends. I don’t think he ever had a girlfriend, I wouldn’t know since it’s
been years we don’t speak…”
this sounds like that story we saw on the news…” “Yeah, dude… that’s… tough.” “Yeah…
I don’t know what I would do if we stayed years without talking to each other,
bro.” “Yeah… I can’t even imagine how it would be to be brainwashed to hate
you, dude… I… love you.” “I love you too, bro.” the guys get up and hug each
MC?” Saeran frowns, completely confused. “Meet my brothers.”
When you guys are leaving, your father shakes his hand happily. “Good luck in finding your brother, the two of you will be very happy one day.”
“The three of us.” saeran says, hugging you and placing a kiss in your forehead.

Okay, now that Saeran has his own route, whenever we talk about Secret Endings Saeran, I’ll take it as MC and him being brother and sister-in-law since that’s what they are cannonly in the SEs, therefore, this one will be a little angsty since it’s Saeran falling for a MC who’s with Saeyoung… hope you understand and like this!
CONTAIN SPOILERS FOR RAY’S ROUTE
1 YEAR ANNIVERSARY
CHARACTER DAY: SAERAN
MC helping Saeran to get a date
comes back from the ice cream shop with cones for himself, his brother and you.
you’re back! We were getting a little worried since it was taking a while.”
sorry I’m late. The girl who works there confessed to me.” He shrugs as you and
Saeyoung widen your eyes and stare at each other.
Saeran?” you ask. “What?” “Did you just say… a girl confessed to you?” “Well,
she said she likes me ever since I went there for the first time and that I
didn’t have to give her an answer right now, but she asked me to think about
accepting her feelings. This is confessing, right?”
what did you answer?” “I said ‘thank you’.” “For her confession?” “No, for the
you will think about it, right?” you ask him. “I… I don’t know, should I?”
don’t think you should, you barely know her.” “You barely knew me when you fell
for me, Saeyoung.” “Says who?” “Uhm… you. Like, all the time.” “Ah yes… because
it’s true.” He winks and you giggle.
think you should consider, Saeran. I mean… I think it would be good for you to
go out and date.” “Why do you think that?”
you’re nice, you’re sweet, you deserve to be happy and to be loved, don’t you
think?” He… never thought much about that, to be honest.
mean, it’s not like you dislike the girl, do you?” “Well, no. She… always gives
me extra topping for free.” “Hum, that’s… something to start with.”
us you will think about it and give her an answer, bro.” Seyoung says. “Even if
it’s ‘no’, just answer her. It’s too cruel to let someone hanging like this.” You
grab his hand and plea, making him blush. “F-fine, I will.” He promises looking at you.
week later, he decides to go talk to the girl. For some reason, he couldn’t
stop thinking about what you said about him deserving to be loved…
always says he’ll find a way through happiness, and most of the days, he
believes that, but being loved? Like, in a romantic sense? Could it be? Why do
you think it’s possible for him? Is it because you are surrounded by love, or
is it because you’re so bright and positive? You sure know a lot about love,
and you’re very honest and sweet with him, you would never lie to him, you…
thought about what you told me the other day.” He says, trying not to dodge his
gaze from hers. “Y-yes?” “Thank you very much for what you told me, but I… like
oh okay. Thank you for telling me, honestly I thought… you would just ignore me
and never say anything.” “That would be cruel.” She nods when he says that
good luck for you! Whoever this person is, they are very special.” “Yes…”
takes a deep breath before walking home and having to face Saeyoung… and you.
How did it go?” Saeyoung asks. “I said ‘no’, she took it pretty fine.” His brother
nods. “It’s okay if… you just don’t want to date at all, you know?” “Yeah, I
looks at you, then looks away, knowing he’ll blush if you look into his eyes
and pat his shoulder sweetly.
he said, it’s fine if you never want to date, some people are like this and
they’re fine. But if you want to… I’m
pretty sure you’ll meet someone amazing and you guys will have something very
special, just like your brother and I.”
last part hits him like a punch in the stomach. Yeah, he already met someone
amazing that already has something very special going on, but it’s with the other twin.
