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.

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
- Netflix (Dae-young & Myung-joo)
- Blackout (Dae-young & Myung-joo)
- Absence (Dae-young & Myung-joo)
- Compassion (Ki-bum & Min-ji)
- Ritual (Dae-young & Myung-joo microfic)
- Date (Shi-jin & Dae-young)
- Blocked (Myung-joo & Dae-young)
- 157 (Dae-young & Myung-joo)
- Bouquet (Dae-young & Myung-joo)
- 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!
- Myung-joo meeting Dae-young’s mom for the first time
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.
I thought I’d be more enamoured with the Song-Song couple, and while their dilemma has been painted so vividly, and multiple AU stories could form, somehow the secondary couple’s story resonates more. There’s so much we don’t know, but there must have been a lot of happy memories, especially after the snippets on Ep 5 and 6. Theirs is a simple, ordinary love borne from respect and friendship, and not so much of the whizz-bang kind of romance.
Clickbait Wannabe: Dae-young and Myung-Joo are dating, and he’s off on a mission. As a soldier, she understands that he can’t be in contact when on a mission, but she still misses him. How now?
This fluff fic is in the style of the Princess Diaries, and is related to the flashback scene in Ep 6. Disclaimer: I hold no rights to the characters, plot or anything else associated with Descendants of the Sun.
I hate Tumblr. Fine. I just don’t know how to copy out the specific gifs, and it’s taking too long to research how to, so here’s (the link of) what I want, what I really really want:
Couldn’t find ANY online (ok, there was one, but of some boybander in the show), and have resorted to writing my own. Wanted something smutty, but that is beyond my power at the moment. So here’s something totally fluff. Or whatever. Might be a one-shot, might have chapters. Nothing concrete yet.
Clickbait Wannabe: Everyone thinks they’re dating, but Myung-joo hasn’t even held his hand since the wedding. Does she have to turn to Netflix for company?
The following is riffed off the flashback in Episode 4. Disclaimer: I hold no rights to the characters, plot or anything else associated with Descendants of the Sun.
Thoughts Ramble has a thorough recap of the ep, so head here for the full story.
Train wreck ahead?
