Lock and Key

Washing Up (or an ode to assistant writer Ji-ho)


Se-hee admired the efficiency of Ji-ho’s washing up. Such economical use of water, detergent and effort to produce such cleanly washed tableware and utensils. He, on the other hand, though meticulous in his cleaning, could not match her speed or efficiency. Se-hee was utterly impressed. How did she do it? he wondered as he tried to observe her methods. What was her magic algorithm? Continue reading



Yeon-kyung put on the hanbok as Im and the kids waited outside.

At this rate we’re going, I could probably open a hanbok rental company in Seoul… I should probably wear some light pieces of gold or silver more – at least that’d pay for all the clothes and stuff that we always need to get here. Wonder where he gets his money from – bartering acupuncture services, perhaps? she mused.

Her mind turned to Im. Last night, she had woken and seen him checking on the sleeping Kang and tucking Dam in.

He’d be a great father one day… Aish! Why did I think that? she chided herself for her stray thought as she absently tied her hair into a chignon.

“Let’s go!” she announced brightly as she stepped out of the hut, holding out her hands to the children.

Im looked at her and smiled.

Yeon-kyung is so pretty. My Yeong-kyung is so pretty. My wife is so pretty.

He blushed as he followed behind.


Descendants of the Sun Fanfic 10: Dae-young & Shi-jin (FEO)


If Gong Yoo were Min Yoon-gi, a lunch date would pretty much mean we were engaged. 

Clickbait wannabe: An FEO would take too much paperwork, but hunting down a certain Min Yoon-gi wasn’t a problem for pros like them.

This fic is set any time after Episode 12 after the samgyetang scandal. Insert favourite K-hottie into the role of Dr Min Yoon-gi. Someone in the early to mid-30s who can be a little fey. Have fun!

Descendants of the Sun Fanfic 8: Dae-young & Myung-joo (157)


Clickbait Wannabe: What happens in the army, stays in the army.  Unless it happens to involve rabid fanboys of aegyo girl groups and the internet. 

This fic is set in Ep 16 after the girlfriends find out about their men’s fanboy behaviour. Disclaimer: I hold no rights to the characters, plot or anything else associated with Descendants of the Sun. Continue reading


Descendants of the Sun Fanfic 7: Myung-joo and Dae-young (Blocked)

Clickbait Wannabe: Myung-joo is frustrated. What does a girl have to do to get some sugar? 

This fic is set in Ep 9 after Myung-joo tells Shi-jin to throw the pebble at Dae-young.  (This is slightly racy, in case you’re underaged. But only very minutely so.  Disclaimer: I hold no rights to the characters, plot or anything else associated with Descendants of the Sun.

Descendants of the Sun Fanfic 6: Shi-jin & Dae-young (Date)

Koala and probably some Soompi forumers have mentioned that the date was a callback to the date Dae-young promised Shi-jin if the latter didn’t answer Myung-joo’s call [in Episode 1].  I know Dae-young said they went as far as Konkuk University, whose Seoul campus is located in the southeastern part of Seoul, near the Han River, which is where lovers go for romantic dates or bad breakups, but I’m choosing to ignore that possibility for something less loaded.

Clickbait Wannabe: Rejected by Mo-yeon, Shi-jin gets Dae-young to make good on his promise of introducing air-stewardesses to him. How will the date go?

This fic is set in the time before they were sent to Urk.  (This is NOT yaoi fic. I also don’t know how to do smut yet.)  Disclaimer: I hold no rights to the characters, plot or anything else associated with Descendants of the Sun. Continue reading


Descendants of the Sun Fanfic List


Er. There’s only been four fics so far, but I’m hoping to do one fic a week. So starting a list to be kiasu.

Update (29 May 2016): Right, so the tenth fic is finally up. Thank you for being on this journey, and suggesting great ideas! I hope to get down to writing them sometime before the end of the decade millennium. =p

  1. Netflix (Dae-young & Myung-joo)
  2. Blackout (Dae-young & Myung-joo)
  3. Absence (Dae-young & Myung-joo)
  4. Compassion (Ki-bum & Min-ji)
  5. Ritual (Dae-young & Myung-joo microfic)
  6. Date (Shi-jin & Dae-young)
  7. Blocked (Myung-joo & Dae-young)
  8. 157 (Dae-young & Myung-joo)
  9. Bouquet (Dae-young & Myung-joo)
  10. FEO (Dae-young & Shi-jin)

I’m very thankful that the fics are getting read, especially since I hadn’t done prose for quite a while. (Random ranting unfortunately doesn’t quite count.) Would really appreciate any feedback on how to improve my writing. Is it too lame? No payoff? Weird phrasing/anything? Also, if you’d like to be a beta reader, please drop a line. (I know there’s fanfiction.net, but there seems to be a number of hoops to jump through before stories can be posted.)

Update (17 April 2016): Thank you all for reading the fics.  There are a few ideas I have in my head at the moment, but may not have time to do.  If anyone should write them, please leave a link – I’d love to read them!

  1. Myung-joo meeting Dae-young’s mom for the first time
  2. The guys finding Min Yoon-gi, the sunbae that their girls had fought over, I keep thinking he’s not quite what they expect him to be.
