Kim Jongdae by day, Electro Kid by night. Superhero AU.

Jongdae wants to be inside Baekhyun's heart, even if Baekhyun might only want to get into Jongdae's pants.

Baekhyun falls, and then he falls again. And again. And again. And again.

When loud Gryffindor Baekhyun asks Hufflepuff Jongdae to help him with his crush they certainly did not expect to get stuck on this kind of adventure.

Every night Baekhyun tries to annoy his o...

It's not what he had hoped for, Jongdae sighs wistfully. But then Jongin comes up next to him, squeezing his hand, smiling that golden smile. They turn back to look at X.O., at what they had helped create. He squeezes Jongin's hand back thinking, but it's still perfect.

Semi AU Where Jongdae and Jongin never got to debut.

Jongdae is severely confused as to why, in all of their encounters, Jongin always ends up abruptly teleporting somewhere else.

Kim Jongin is the only suspect in a criminal case with few clues. It's up to first-year Auror Kim Jongdae to find out who's...

Tumblr!AU: Tumblr famous ulzzang Sehun and b-boy Jongin meet.

Sehun doesn't sleep, and Jongin makes coffee. This is not, however, the fairy tale story of a Starbucks barista and his roommate.

Sehun had no idea who he was making out with on Baekhyun's snap story.

The heart wants what it wants. In Jongin’s case, it wants the scary-looking but soft-hearted son of Hades, Oh Sehun.

Jongin just wanted a roommate. He got a l...

Jongdae is a banana farmer known as the King of Bananas, so it’s only natural that the biggest grocery chain in the region wants to sell his product. The problem is that Jongdae is against big corporations, and the negotiator the company sends to offer him a deal isn’t that experienced either.

Yixing's laugh is quiet, almost fond. "You're very good at this job, Detective," he says softly.

Jongdae is hard-pressed to disagree.

Each time Sehun gets sent to the principal's office, the reasons get more and more ridiculous than the last.

Shy skater (wears lots of too big sweaters bc he likes feeling small) Jongin has a big GIANT CRUSH on Minseok, a barista at a local organic cafe. His friends think it's Very Suspicious that he's spending so much time at a cafe when he hates the taste of coffee.

The first rule of pretending is convincing everyone you're not—even at the expense of your true feelings.

All Minseok wants is his red thread.

Kai's newest client brings old feelings rushing back, but this is just a job, and Jongin will have to remember that if he wants to keep his heart safe.

Jongin breaks a lot of stereotypes with his placement on the college football team, and draws a lot of attention to himself as the team's designated feature back. Captain Kris Wu is intrigued, and not nearly as mean and harsh as everyone seems to think.

Taking care of a puppy isn't how Yifan planned to spend the next couple of weeks, but he doesn't mind looking after a friend.

Junmyeon would have a much easier time running his parent’s store if the bizarre tall guy sitting on the floor would stop stealing doughnuts and talking to milk cartons.

Despite having no artistic talent, student Kim Junmyeon signs up for an introduction to painting class at his university. He has a lot to learn, not only about the ins and outs of art, but also about why the grumpy and caffeine-addicted art professor seems to have taken a keen interest in him.

Junmyeon is sent to Huaxia as an offering for a peace treaty, to be a consort to the reigning Emperor Wu Yifan. Except, Jun...

Where Baekhyun steals Joonmyeon's car, and maybe his heart too.

Baekhyun is determined to make the student council lesbians only this year. Joonmyun really wants to be able to put student council vice president on her college resumes, but the problem is that she's not a lesbian. So, in order to get the position, she has to lie about her sexuality. The last thing she expects is to develop feelings for Baekhyun. Because she's not really a lesbian, right? (fem!exo)

Baekhyun’s confession to his best friend in their last year of high school goes wrong in more ways than imaginable.

There are rules for proper housemate etiquette and Sehun's pretty sure he's breaking all of them. On the plus side, Minseok doesn't seem to mind all the dildos he finds in the dishwasher. (daddy kink)

Sehun is a young heir to an Executive-class family who inherits control of a factory. His bedroom has a large window that faces across an alleyway and right at a tenement for workers, and he soon notices the man who lives across from him is stunningly handsome, despite the fact that he’s always wearing his breathing mask and Sehun can only see his eyes.

Chanyeol and Junmyeon are soul mates, tied by the red thread of fate. The only problem is that Chanyeol is a bumbling high schooler, and Junmyeon is a thirty-one year-old accountant who doesn't want anything to do with him. But people are tied together for a reason, and they're both about to find out why. (age gap)

Not that Junmyeon’s been paying that much attention. But cute, giraffe-height guys who pass by an entirely open storefront like clockwork every day are kind of hard to miss. (depression, neurodivergent characters, EXCELLENTLY handled)

The crew joke about Park Chanyeol being the Leslie Cheung to acclaimed director Kris Wu's Wong Kar-wai, but they might need to rethink their analogy.

All Chanyeol wanted to do was buy eggs. He wasn’t meant to be caught in his ex-boyfriend’s old work t-shirt by the ex-boyfriend himself.

Teeth-Rich looked like the kind of guy who wanted to set the world on fire just for the fun of it. Kris knew the type. What Kris didn't count on was for Teeth-Rich to become his breakfast date across Asia.

Fandom life isn't supposed to intersect neatly with reality, but Chanyeol is the exception to the rule.

After he fails his pyromancy exams and his license is temporarily revoked, Chanyeol feels like he has nothing left to live for--until he rediscovers his dying flower gardens, and his cute hedgewitch neighbour, Kyungsoo, offers to help him revive them.

Chanyeol would do anything for his best friend.

minseok wasn't looking for a soulmate, but there are two threads on his finger and a whole mess ahead of him.

Minseok works the late night shift at a convenience store. Baekhyun and Jongdae are thieves who keep coming back.

A human, a vampire and a werewolf all walk into a diner at three o’clock in the morning --Baekhyun is still waiting for the punchline.

Minseok and Jongdae make Baekhyun feel so completely out of his element, but that’s exactly what he likes about them.

Laid, paid. Same thing.

The year is 1980, and Yixing has been invited to join the Seattle Ballet's summer programme as an exchange student from the Beijing Dance Academy. Baekhyun is a Korean-Canadian-American soloist with a wide smile and a reckless enthusiasm for life, dance, and Yixing's jetés. The language barrier is the least of their worries.

Hogwarts AU. Jongdae and Chanyeol are arch-enemies, and trying to outdo each other's malicious pranks is something they have been doing for years. That is until one of Jongdae's pranks goes horribly wrong, causing them both to reconsider their feelings for one another.

It takes Joonmyeon a long time to realise that he’s miserable, that there’s more to life than he assumes. It takes Jongin to fix it; all-encompassing, unconditional, and always faintly rose scented.

Jongin attends university in K-ARTS for two reasons: one, his scholarship; and two, his favorite DJ, $uho.

jongin is suho's biggest fan, but strangely enough, he finds deceptively mild-mannered joonmyun even more intriguing.

Minseok is sentenced for a crime so severe that he is banished to the prison colony on Earth. An accident occurs that sends him far from his original destination, where he discovers a place far beyond anything he had ever expected, and falls in love with a young man who saves him from his past.

Prince Baekhyun is born into a royal title and an arranged marriage. Modern Royalty AU.

Minseok disapproves of hybrid culture but adopts Baekhyun on a humanitarian whim. Baekhyun just wants to be a good puppy, the best puppy Minseok has ever wanted, could ever have. (hybrid!au)

Falling in love with Baekhyun was just like breathing - easy, natural. It was everything else that was hard. (A Howl's Moving Castle AU)

Baekhyun looks back and wonders just where everything went wrong. Or alternatively, Kyungsoo sings the words Baekhyun only dreams of speaking aloud.

Kyungsoo lives a quiet life. He tries hard in school, does his homework, plays video games to relieve stress. And yeah, he has a crush on fellow online gamer Xen0s. His life would be very nice and peaceful if it weren't for Byun Baekhyun and his quest to ruin Kyungsoo's life.

Hooking up with Tae isn't supposed to mean anything. Jongin likes boys. And despite sometimes getting mistaken for one, Tae certainly isn't a boy. (fem!exo)

Taemin and Jongin have always been childhood friends, but now that they're older they don't want to admit that they're being pulled in different directions. They hit a moment where they're neither going forward or backward, until a crash takes Taemin out of his body and he's forced to see what Jongin's been going through in his absence.

Jongin and Kyungsoo are best friends. Kyungsoo starts dating Chanyeol. Chanyeol thinks they can do better.

After the bombs fell humanity has been divided between two worlds. One hidden away in the Seoul metro and the other one hiding up in the highrises. Kyungsoo has lived his entire life in the metro, learning to navigate the dark tunnels like the back of his hand. One day he’s forced up to the surface and thrown into Chanyeol and Jongin’s life in the highrises. But after discovering the darkness from the metro is seeping into the light of the surface the three of them have to set out on a journey across Seoul in order to save humanity from another disaster.

The problem with actually convincing Chanyeol to ask Baekhyun out is that: a) Jongdae really doesn’t want to fucking do it, and b) Kyungsoo may or may not get in the way of that plan to begin with.

One sunny day, Kyungsoo swallows a handful of pills, curls up on his bed and dies. That's not the end though, it's merely another beginning. (character death, depression)

Jongdae is terrified of his across-the-hall neighbors.

Baekhyun and Kyungsoo are hired to steal an ancient artifact from the hull of a cargo ship, but instead they find Jongdae --a mysterious alien calling itself a human who's very, very far from home, and is now stuck as the unasked-for third member upon their ship. This could be a problem.

All Kyungsoo wants is to figure out what's going on between him and Jongdae. Instead, he gets a potted plant.

Byun Baekhyun is a dream, and Yixing doesn't know how he's lucky enough to share such a dream with Yifan.

Baseball comes with rules and regulations for Minseok to follow; loving two people at once does not.

The awkward silence stretches indefinitely, coextensive with her uneven heartbeat. "Well," says Baekhyun casually, "looks like the wrong member got into the right scandal."

Or: this is what her math teacher taught her back in high school; a triangle is the most stable of all geometric shapes.
