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.
Clickbait Wannabe: What’s with Dae-young’s bouquet fixation?
This fic is set in Ep 16 after the wedding dinner of Daniel and Ye-hwa, in an AU where there is no volcanic eruption. Disclaimer: I hold no rights to the characters, plot or anything else associated with Descendants of the Sun.
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
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.
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
They have less than 8 minutes of interaction in the whole ep, but boy, did they try to make it count!
Seo Dae-young! Man up please! Poor Myung-joo must be about to burst already. And please take responsibility when her father asks you that question in Ep 9!
Hopefully the video gets to stay around for a loooooong time!

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.
If you’ve watched up to Episode 8 of DotS, you might have noticed earnest puppy, Ki-bum, and rookie nurse, Min-ji. There doesn’t appear to be any storyline involving both, but being the most junior in their organisations in Urk, I’d expect they might have more in common than they think.
Clickbait Wannabe: Ki-bum is bummed out that he’s more hindrance than help. Compassion comes from an unexpected quarter.
This flashfic is related to the post-earthquake recovery work in Ep 7. Disclaimer: I hold no rights to the characters, plot or anything else associated with Descendants of the Sun.
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.
Still long-winded fluff, if that were possible. Sorry. Writing erotic anything is harder (heh) than I thought it would ever be. Almost as bad as writing lesson plans…
Clickbait Wannabe: Dae-young and Myung-Joo are dating, but she’s getting frustrated – she’s not getting any action off the battlefield. Will a blackout heat things up?
This story follows the events of the earlier fic. Disclaimer: I hold no rights to the characters, plot or anything else associated with Descendants of the Sun.
