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.

That’s 23 drama serials just from the K-canon.  With Candy Crush, no wonder so little has been accomplished…

(And I’m ashamed to report that the one book a month has failed spectacularly too.  Have only managed to read bits of Neil Gaiman’s Trigger Warning.)


Drama mama

Dramas I’m following (i.e. reading about) now:


Bad Guys – Not to be confused with Bad Guy, this gritty crime thriller pits an unorthodox police chief with his crack team of hardened criminals against the most heinous serial killers. And the reason why criminals are working with the man in blue? They get time off their sentences for each sick bastard they catch. But what’s their connection with each other? What’s the deep dark secret that will eventually turn them on one another? Why can’t the dishy serial killer remember what he did? Mysteries abound…

Post-show comment: Thrilling to the last!

Squee Time

Maybe it’s the escapism talking, but when not Candy Crushing, Frozen smashing or homework/housework avoiding, I’m mad following Marriage, Not Dating and It’s Ok, It’s Love. Kinda written off Trot Lovers for being play-by-number, and High School King of Savvy for having a weird 18-28 relationship and both look like they’re running outta steam in terms of plot.
