Twenty-three: Jessica
--


The plane ride back to Korea sucked.

Jessica lugged her suitcase down a hall, swearing every time its wobbliest wheel warped her into zigzags.

Delays. Turbulence. No WiFi. A lightning storm. Pilot sounded drunk.

Suckage.

Lucky Six considered themselves blessed, close to dry humping the asphalt as they safely unloaded. Nay, the suckage persisted. Hordes of media hounds, Charms, and anti-Charms congested the airport. The Chinese station from which they left had been similar. Except Jessica couldn’t interpret the barks for attention other than names and short phrases in English. Here, in South Korea, references to Ace, Yuri, multiple dating rumors, and Elite’s testimony hit The Six at full impact.

JiWook bloated into Violet Beauregarde realness when Jessica bypassed the van ride home, phoning for her own separate transportation. Understandable, although, she was still miffed about her leadership’s original purpose. She’d been weaker, sure. Gullible, possibly. That didn’t warrant omitting stronger candidates in a hostile situation--joining an established group. Choosing Tiffany may have saved her a ton of trouble. She could’ve sharpened anxious energy into productivity-- not lose sleep over what member listened to her on what day.

Jessica knocked an elbow to the door. She needed personal respite. For a few hours.

Sunny answered.

“Hi,” Jessica chimed, uninclined for snark.

She scoped the luggage. “Moving in?”

“Accepting new roomies?”

Sunny didn’t partake in her sheepish grin. “Fany stole my song.”

“She went through my things,” Jessica whined. Couldn’t this wait? “I didn’t hand it to her.”

A couple weeks had gone by since Elite Entertainment made the official statement on Tiffany and ex-Olympian Ace’s “four-month” relationship. Predictably, the response was explosive. Too explosive, in fact. It put the public’s head in a whirlwind--incapable of digesting the “friendly lunch outing” with the Skandl member. Rather, the gay news got rained on by articles, conspiracies, and viral footage of Ace, clad in a suffocating Moschino tee, apologizing for “misleading” his fanatics.

Did he ever have many fangirls. Lucky Six (and Elite) underestimated his popularity. Jessica, Sooyoung, and Hyoyeon’s Picpockettes were jam-packed with spiteful ‘Acers’ holy warring other fandoms. He’d been pedastooled as the finest young bachelor for his good looks, demeanor, sense of charity, and naming the ‘everyday woman’ as his type. Now, the batshit part of the populace jeered him for falling for Korea’s beauty standard. Like all the other guys.

Theories clogged the airwaves--some supporting, many concluding that Heechul and Ace were always lenient on Lucky Six regarding gossip. Which was downright nonsense.

The World Tour would be their saving grace. Publicity, controversial or not, boosted sales. Ace’s viewership increased and Tiffany became the hottest topic on Twitter and Naver. Internet sleuths already discovered ancient photos of the false couple together. This farce helped everyone. Mostly CEOs.

“Giving ‘love:murder’ to you was a mistake.” Sunny stepped back, allowing Jessica to enter the apartment. “My music is very personal. It’s a part of me.”

“If I could control her, I would.”

The musician grumbled. “Tae’s in her room.”

“I’ll talk to Fany...again.” Though, Tiffany kept her plans to herself.

“I’m a dumbass for trusting you.”

In Hongdae, as Jessica pleaded her intrinsic, unexplainable urgency to learn the song, Sunny dropped her bitchy blinders. Since, like everything, this involved Taeyeon.

So, Sunny sang each line, scribbling incoherent genius notes throughout the lesson. Circling notes of emphasis. Making Jessica promise two things:

Not to squander this opportunity.
She wouldn’t break Taeyeon’s heart.

With “love:murder” hijacked before she chose how to use it, Jessica’s vowed to keep the second provision solid.



Lo and behold, Taeyeon was napping when Jessica closed herself in the next bedroom. Sleepy Taeyeon and Grumpy Jessica. They should’ve traded nicknames.

Once she collapsed onto the emptier side, the fairer-haired woman jerked upright, flinging dazed panic at every corner.

Jessica hooked her by the chin. “It’s just me.”

“Jesus,” Taeyeon grumbled, deflating. She glanced at the brick of luggage. “Are you on the run or what?”

“I grabbed a cab at the airport. Had to see you.”

“How was your trip?”

“Nice, I suppose.” All-expenses paid trip sanctioned by Elite. There were fires to extinguish and leaving the country cleared Lucky Six of any new developments. “I get why Yul loved that unplugged hiatus. Immersing myself in idol confusion is unhealthy.”

“It keeps you sharp.”

“Whatever, nerd.” She nudged her face into Taeyeon’s cheek, hands twisting the edge of a Culture Club shirt. “I heard some of your new songs were leaked.”

From Skandl’s upcoming, non-scandalized, sterile album. Reception, from what Jessica skimmed, had been positive. Her girlfriend--The Reviews Aficionado--would know more than her.

“Jessica, I don’t want to talk about it.”

“Oh...okay.” They’d prefer the fans to hate it, Jessica conjured.

Taeyeon rolled them into a lying position. Bowed eyes twinkled wickedly, attentively. The desk lamp illuminated her smirk. “Hi back.”

“I didn’t say hi yet.”

“Then, say it.”

“Make me.”

Jessica’s breath hitched. A single intake before Taeyeon’s smooth lips found hers. They kissed leisurely, fanning fingers through lush hair and sliding the silk of bare legs. Tiffany, tours, hate speech drifted from her mind. Truthfully, this was the only escape she desired. Elite wouldn’t understand.

Taeyeon trilled; warm fingertips circled beneath Jessica’s shirt. “Mm. Spending the night?”

“No.” She ignored the expected groan. “Lucky duties to attend to.”

The leader’s hoarse voice trailed wet kisses to her ear. Her question was raw, impatient. “Will you attend to me?”

Jessica growled, a smidge guilty. Visiting her girlfriend wasn’t 100% for relaxation; they had an objective to complete. But, winding Taeyeon up gratified her sensitive nerves. “You’re not a Lucky duty, bear. You’re a Jessica Jung duty.”

“Fuck, that’s trumps all.”

She relished in the squeezes, scratches, palmfuls of her ass seized by small, dexterous hands. Taeyeon sure knew how to touch a girl. Reigns of self-restraint beaded through her grasp until she bundled silky locks behind her ears, getting a better view at her handiwork. “Tae?”

“Hm?” Taeyeon’s lids blinked out of sync. Yep, the damage had been done.

“We should--”

“I love you, sweetheart.”


Ohhh. Sly Moody bear playing that card. And the way the woman’s eyes drank her in, tongue making a short appearance at the corner of her lips, grazing that damn piercing. It liquified her every time. “You think you’re sneaky.”

“Who, me?”

She shuddered, feeling her zipper descend. Treacherous legs opened entry into her shorts. “Babe, let’s--”

Taeyeon grinned triumph. “Let’s...get naked?”

“Wait?”

Through fabric, pressure on her center halted. “Am-am I doing something wrong?”

“My sister,” Jessica accidentally moaned. Straightening her throat at a comically perplexed gasp, she clarified, “Soojung should meet you.”

“When?”

She groped the bed for her phone, lighting its screen. “Right now. She should be home right now, actually.”

“I’m so horny, though.”

“Willpower?” Jessica lifted Taeyeon’s hand from its goal. “She’s adamant. We’ve been dating for months and she’s beginning to question you.”

“And?”

“Curb your attitude, Tae. Soojung will outbitch you in seconds.” She refastened her zipper, hopping out of bed to switch on a bigger light.

“Doubtful.”

“You have to be compatible with my family.”

“Why should I?”

Petulant, evasive Taeyeon. Similar to the old days. Jessica knew the woman cared just as much about impressing her sister as she did. She answered honestly, anyways. “Because someday, I’d like you to meet my parents and grandparents and cousins…” Jessica picked Taeyeon’s laptop off her dresser. “I consider you the one.” She flushed madly, entering the password and double-clicking Skype. “If you want.”

Her girlfriend gawked. An absentminded nod. “The one. Okay.”

She watched Skandl’s badass leader bump her knee on a desk, curse, hobble to her drawer to cull a suitable blouse. And apply mascara. And comb her hair. And…

“Trying to seduce her?” Jessica teased, casually messaging her sister before getting on cam. This would be a surprise for Soojung, too.

An impressively presentable Taeyeon reclaimed her place on the bed, visibly shaking. “Too much?”

“She’ll appreciate the effort.” Or mock it. Whichever.

The familiar Skype ringing stole Taeyeon’s hopeful smile. Jessica heaved a huge breath. And spewed:

“Don’t call her Soojung. She goes by Krystal and only Krystal to people she doesn’t know. Don’t ask about work because she hates it. Don’t ask about film because she loves it. Don’t gloat, don’t berate yourself, no self-pity. Have some spice. Not too much or she’ll call you a bitch. Don’t be offended if she calls you a bitch. Really, really remember to not to address as her Soojung--that’s a family name.”

Entertained by the terror reflected in Taeyeon’s dark pupils, she hit [Answer].

The screen loaded.

To a half-naked Jung Soojung, singing, “Sissyyyy, peep my new--AHHH!!!

“Soojung!” and “Hohhh, shit!”, they screamed back at her.

Regardless of the initial shock, her younger sister didn’t hide a revealing halter neck bikini top. She leaned her head to the side, cheesing devilishly. “Hi! I’m Kimmie, your webcam plaything! Anyone wanna see my tits?”

“Mmhm,” Taeyeon mumbled, staring.

Jessica promptly screened a hand over her eyes. The other two clutched their sides laughing, taking the easiest bonding tactic: ganging up on the older sister. “Soojungie, get dressed!”

“It’s a swimsuit, Jess. You sound like a Republican.”

“Looks like your sister’s tryin’ to seduce me instead,” Taeyeon snickered, instantly yelping from a slap in the forehead. “That hurt!”

“My sister’s very violent,” Soojung shimmied into a mesh sweater. “Run while you can still use your legs!”

They seemed cordial. Jessica would withstand the brunt of the jokes if it meant her two most important girls getting along. “Tae’s safe, thank you very much.”

“You’re shorter than I thought you’d be.” Soojung raised her eyebrows, silently pushing for a response.

Taeyeon’s tongue tied into knots. “I heels and um, camera angles for a…”

“Jess’ exes were tall. Weren’t they, sis?”

Jessica avoided the outraged glance singeing her face. “I don’t recall.”

“Are you...” She scrutinized openly. “taller than Taeyeon?”

“I am.”

The girl’s top lip bent out of shape. “Yikes. Dealbreaker.”

“Behave, Soojung. She’s all the woman I need.” Jessica squeezed her girlfriend’s knee. Subtle assurance.

“Tell me about yourself, short stuff. And omit shit I can Google myself.”

Taeyeon held her chin, thinking. Pretty cute, but Soojung grew impatient.

“Anything. Before I grow a beard.”

“I--er,” She flaked long bangs from her pinkened face. “I like, I like--”

Soojung didn’t realize the difficulty of separating one’s self from a profession of their magnitude. Skandl, fame, singing--it was her life. “What. Do. You. Like?”

“Keeping to myself,” Taeyeon admitted in an exhale. “I don’t go out much and when I do, disaster strikes. Life’s better in my apartment.”

She smiled, respecting the answer. “What else do you like?”

“Uh…” A shrug. “Smoking?”

“Smoking what?”

“Smoking weed.”

Soojung stoner-grinned. “Excellent. My coworkers and I hotboxed in a vault yesterday. My munchies were--” She karate swiped. “Kickass. I ate the whole bowl of complementary lollipops. Fuck the kids.”

“You’re going to get fired.”

“Don’t be a drag, Jess! This is America. Our entire population is blazed.”

Taeyeon’s brain was probably booking a trip to the States. “That true?”

“No,” Jessica sighed.

“You’re not here! How would you know?” The sister returned to her question track. “What else do you like?”

The rockstar’s shoulders relaxed. More comfortable. “Sex.”

“With whom?”

Oh my god, Soojung…

“With your um, Jessica. Exclusively.” Her face brightened, another thought breezing through. “Your sister! I like your sister a lot.”

“Took you long enough. You’re trying to make an impression, short stack. My sister is first. Over smoking, sex, and your boringness. Got it?”

Taeyeon nodded. “Duly received.”

“So,” Soojung propped her elbows onto a desk--locked and loaded. “I’m very uncomfortable about your boyfriend, Loco--”

“He’s not my--”

“If Jess had to flaunt a hot guy, would you care?”

The Lucky member studied Taeyeon’s petrified face, curious herself. They’d never broached this topic.

“I’m not flaunting.”

“Yes, you are. Answer my question.”

“I’d--” Taeyeon massaged her eyebrows, perturbed. “I’d hate it, okay? It’d crush me.”

Wow. She didn’t realize how much she wanted to hear this confession. Taeyeon and Loco were far from real, yet the waves of Photoshopped pictures, Vines of the hand-holding, nighttime date pictures...difficult to brush off. “Tae…”

“How ‘bout those gay ass photos of Yuri and Tiffany?” their interrogator pressed. “Would you come out as a dyke or cower behind your boyfriend?”

Moody bear growled, pouting as such. “I don’t fuckin’ know. Our PR team is unpredictable.”

Soojung pointed to the camera. “You’re a free agent, no matter how much you try to convince yourself otherwise. My sister doesn’t deserve a liar.”

“I’ve lied, too,” Jessica defended.

Her sister ignored that. “She wears her heart on her sleeve. When she’s crying to me and I’m miles removed, unable to console her, I fuckin’ despise you.”

“Sooj--” Taeyeon self-corrected, gulping deep breaths. “Krystal.”

“Good save.”

“I love Jessica. I do. How can I prove it to you?”

Jessica wrapped her arms around the other woman, kissing a studded ear, muttering, “I believe you, Tae.”

Taeyeon was adamant. “How, Krystal?”

Remnants of a younger sister’s emotions faded. Demonically serious. “Idols are phony. You’re phony.”

“You’re right. I can be.”

“What do you want in life? I don’t want ‘to communicate to others through music’ BS. Plain and simple. What do you want?”

She recognized that glower. Soojung’s no-nonsense film expression. The one she melded when calling ‘Action!’ or editing a clip for the 100th time.

Jessica slid Taeyeon’s trembling hand into her lap. Her short nails were painted gold. Lucky gold.

Her lips cracked open after a full minute. “When I was a kid, I wanted to be Joan Jett.” She snickered softly, wiping an eye with her shoulder. “Then, I became a teenager. A cocky Elite recruit. Set to surpass any he she within the company. That didn’t work; so, as a Skandl member, I had to be the best. I was motivated by pain and rejection...a thirst for revenge. To prove naysayers wrong.” Her straight eyelashes flickered to the ceiling, then to the screen.

“And now?”

“I only want to be...to be myself without repercussions. I’m flopping at that.” She shook her head, humorlessly smirking. “I failed at being accepted by Elite, my parents, an evil ex, and LTE sometimes. Today--for weeks, perhaps months--I want to be accepted into your family. Because Jessica’s the realest thing that’s happened to me. Ever.”

There had to be a level beyond Cloud Nine. Jessica floated above her current body, decidedly spellbound. The ‘I like puffins' comment made all the sense.

Soojung looked stunned as well. “I wish I recorded that.”

“Huh?!”

“Tell you what,” The woman on the computer placed a fist to her mouth, thumping it three times. “Add me here, on Skype. We can talk whenever you feel conflicted. My advice is harsh, but infallible.”

“It’s not,” Jessica lipped, pleased that she unearthed Taeyeon’s smile.

“Jess is my main priority.”

“Mine, too,” Skandl’s leader rushed in.

“She can’t be,” Soojung argued. “You’re a celebrity. Your image, brand, band--they all come first. Believe me--I’ve bitched at Jess for this very reason, too.”

“I’ll prove you wrong--about prioritizing your sister.”

She tweaked on a wry grin. “Don’t idol-lie to me.”

“I’m not.”

“Funny. You’re not the emo diva I imagined.”

“Thank you, Krystal.”

“Call me Soojung.”

Before Kuma/Coma-style water works erupted, Soojung whipped to her sister. “Message me later. A goddess from Screenwriting asked me to the movies and I don’t know if she’ll put out on the first date.”

“Hold on!” Jessica’s voice hit the roof. “Goddess--she? A girl?! Since when--”

“Is my landing strip too slutty?”

“You wouldn’t...”

“Goodniiiight!” Then, Soojung signed off.

“Oh my god. Our parents are gonna… I bet she’ll make me come out for her. That’ll be a treat.” Casting aside shock from the grandest of capricious sisters, Jessica turned to the singer at her side.

Stress bags accented Taeyeon’s pretty eyes; a classic smirk made up for it. “She’s...cute. I saw the Jung resemblance.”

“What, we’re both crazy and apparently gay?”

“No,” Taeyeon gyrated her chest. “In the boob-ular area.”

And for the next five minutes, Jessica pummeled her love with every pillow in reach.



The honey brunette came home to the aftermath of a Lucky Six sleepover. She wheeled in her bulky suitcase stealthily, parking it to its side beneath a table. Glowing tinges of dawn shrouded the living room, where a comfortably chaotic collection of legs, hair, and pillows decorated their sectional couch.

Jessica had only heard about these slumber parties. They occurred in the wake of monumental events (award shows, far travels, Jinnie’s departure); anything deserving that added dose of physical contact as moral support. The World Tour would be announced that morning.

Including the last day of practice before the “Girls Only” summer concert.

Younger, lesser known girl groups would open, gradually sequencing to independent artists; then, the well-known idol primetime slot. The female empire would showcase a mix of group and special solo stages. Hyoyeon and Tiffany worked hard for their pieces--toiling extra hours to polish a hip hop dance and a song from a recent drama, respectively. Skandl was scheduled to perform right before them. Sunny’s own DJ-ing segment would start the trio off.

Jessica couldn’t help scouring the rough lineup for Bae Soojin’s name. Nothing. Though, that never stopped her in the past.

She toed soundlessly around the couch. Excitement for their future coursed through her muscles. As well as Taeyeon’s wistful honesty with Soojung. No doubt the singer locked a permanent position in her vision of family.

Taeyeon needed it. Jessica wished to wave a wand, causing the Kims realize the error of their ways--that they missed out on a beautifully quirky individual.

Ah, well. Her parents were bound to love her--and tease her. If Taeyeon thought her sister was intense...Jessica couldn’t wait.

Jessica pinched knuckles to her lips, restraining a giggle. Hyoyeon snored on the left end of their sofa, adorned with her three signature accessories: Miso snuggled into her arms, an unopened wine bottle phallically nestled between her legs, and Donovan Zhou beneath her head, pillowing it with a toned thigh. Seemed like when JiWook barred the guy, he crashed at the dorm more often. Lucky Six made a point of it--if Elite launched a romantic narrative on one member, they sure as hell would defend an actual boyfriend.

Unlike Hyoyeon’s artsy man, Sooyoung’s boyfriend had a traditional doctor-surgeon-something medical job that kept him outside their apartment. Donovan served as surrogate male, resting upright for the lean woman’s crossed ankles upon his shoulder.

Sooyoung was beautiful even in her sleep, eyelids relaxed and glossy lips parted. Like a reposed photoshoot. Jessica pecked the heavy sleeper on the cheek, knowing the loudmouth would kick up a fuss otherwise.

The youngest member occupied the sofa’s middle. Jessica tread lightly, for this singer could spring conscious at a pin drop. She handed a ton of her sanity to Seo Juhyun. Managing when JiWook was absent, catering generous advice, touting diligence to last several lifetimes. Jessica wondered/worried about her potential lovelines. Seohyun contributed the bulk of her love to Lucky Six. When that eventual prospect appears, he or she’d better be the damn Messiah or somebody close.

Next, Im Yoongie...topless in her sports bra. Reliving her sister’s bikini stint, Jessica volleyed a swordlike glare at the male before tucking a blanket around her friend’s waist. The woman’s uncanny ability to switch skins to ‘Idol Yoona’ gained new respect. Despite her carefree nature, she’d mastered the industry game--gave fans what they fancied while living freely amongst her closest mates. However JiWook “punished” her, it didn’t leave an impression. Jessica kissed her favorite on the forehead, startled by the phone lighting up in Yoona’s hand. A text alert...from Sunny.

At that hour? Jessica pruned her lips. This would require more adjustments than she anticipated.

Evidence of Madam Hwang cluttered this latter end of the couch. Pink blanket. A discarded sleep mask. Slippers. One of many stuffed animals gifted by Yuri…

She followed her instincts to their room. As expected, Tiffany wasn’t asleep. Instead, she was bent over familiar papers, reading glasses removed to regard the latecomer. “You’re back.”

“Overslept at Tae’s,” Jessica supplied.

“No world wars in your absence. Sleepiness forgiven.”

She gestured to the bed. “May I?”

“Go for it.” Tiffany clicked off a flashlight.

They stared at one another in morning’s blueish grey haze. The woman sitting cross-legged in flannel boxers and no makeup was the version she confided in. Accessible, unstyled. Innocent on the outside, at least.

She and the girls lavished Tiffany with TLC when YulTi broke up. Five shoulders to cry on to make up for the one.

Jessica and Tiffany kept the engagement to themselves.

Approaching schedules provided her roommate daily distractions. Urges to mope siphoned into vocal sessions. Rage personified in more powerful dance steps. Reddened nostrils encouraged foundation shopping.

Only Jessica saw the girl break down in the middle of the night. There, she’d unfold her covers for Tiffany to slither in, the warmth of her body clouding judgements of disloyalty, vindictiveness. A surreal sensation, really.

Tiffany chewed a tip of her glasses. “Overslept...oversexed, you mean?”

“Tae wishes,” Jessica replied in an equally hushed tone, laughing. “She and my sister finally met.”

“Verdict?”

“Tae will be a welcome addition to the Jungs.”

“If you were married...” A rueful smile. “Would you take her last name?”

“Um, no. It’s Jung Taeyeon or bust.”

They snickered in the dimness, eyes yet to depart from their focus--each other. Mirth dissolved as Jessica blinked downward, lifting a marked sheet.

“Fany, what are you going to do with this song?”

“What were you?

Jessica remembered Taeyeon’s burst of pure energy following Soojung’s conversation. After winning the pillow fight, her lover held her tight, crying relieved tears until they were swept into slumber. “Make a statement. To JiWook, Elite...”

“What changed your mind?”

“You…” she whispered, “and the girls. Our children, apparently.” Jessica propped her weight on an elbow, smirking. “I’d rather make a statement by being successful. Going against the odds because Lucky Six is the best.”

“We are.”

“Now, you. Why are you studying Sunny’s song?”

“Backup plan.”

“Meaning?”

“What do you think it means?”

“Don’t fuck up. That’s a warning.”

Tiffany tossed her glasses to her comforter, leaning over crackling papers to hiss, “I’m not Jinnie.”

Jessica shrugged.

“Don’t believe me?”

“I can’t rely on belief, Fany.”

“Fine,” the dark-haired singer sat up, folding her arms. “Round robin game. You and me.”

“Tiffa--”

“Favorite physical attribute--my smile.”

She tumbled onto her back, conceding. “Eyes.”

“Most embarrassing moment? You first.”

“Jinnie intercepting our ‘First Class’ show.” That took little thought.

“Good one. I was most embarrassed when Yul left me tied and naked in the car for an hour. Most humiliating hour to contemplate what I’ve done.”

Jessica sprung back to life. “Are you serious?”

“Give me a secret, Jess.”

Did this woman even deserve to hear secrets?

“I’m…” She clothed herself in the peace of their setting. Tiffany’s slow breathing. Cotton against her back. The agreeable temperature. Ghosts of Taeyeon’s hands in her shirt, stroking her abdomen out of habit. “I’m starting to love this leader business. Unlike you, I know I’m powerless in the grand blueprint of things. But, to have some say….it’s thrilling.”

Tiffany’s lips peeled into a small grin. “Isn’t it?”

“Very. Your turn.”

She gazed to the ceiling, whites of her eyes shifting. “Hm.”

“‘Hm’ isn’t much of a secret. Try again.”

“If you promise to--”

“No more games, Fany!” Jessica snapped, at her peak of patience. She had too much riding on Tiffany and her freaking secrets. This had better be fruitful. “Not chess, checkers, Scrabble, goddamned ‘Ticket to Ride’….nothing.

“Fine!” The woman threw her hands haphazardly. “They’re gone!”

“Who?”

“What the fuck, who?! The pictures! They’re gone.”

“As in…” Jessica moved forward. Truthful eye contact her sole source of sustenance. “Deleted?”

“Deleted. Forever. No one saw them but me.”

“How do I know you’re not lying?”

“You’ll have to trust me.”

A shoddy reply, though the brunette would be kidding herself if she said it didn’t raise her spirits. “What caused this?”

“I need you, Jess.”

Lucky’s leader mimicked impending vomit. Tiffany rolled her eyes.

“Not like that! I need you for this group to prosper.” Hurtful memories practically played behind Tiffany’s eyelids. “Getting dumped...put roles in perspective. Without Yul, I’m heartbroken. Without you and our girls...I’m not Lucky Six’s Tiffany Hwang. That means more to me and when I try to improve myself, maybe I’ll get Yuri back, too.” She wiped a stray tear. “I want it all.”

Jessica pushed scattered sheets to the sides, pressing close enough to feel Tiffany’s breath. “So do I.”

“Impossible, is it not?”

“We strive for perfection. I’d argue that’s pretty impossible.”

“Everything I’ve said...I’m sorry. And putting Taeyeon through betrayal a second time when I knew she was traumatized by fuckin’ Soojin.”

Basking in elation, Jessica swung both arms around Tiffany’s neck, placing a single kiss on the bridge of her nose. “Thank you. In time, I’ll see you in a whole new light. We could be best friends.”

“Damaged trust takes an eternity to mend.”

“I’ll give you less than that.”

Tiffany looped her into a firm hug, silently weeping. For Yuri, more than likely. She let the girl finish, wiping her cheeks dry intermittently, relaying words normally gave to her sister or vice versa. Thus, Jessica Jung, covered in another woman’s tears and surrounded by “love:murder”, concluded--Tiffany had been the naïve one all along.

Honest transparency powered Lucky Six. She learned it as a newbie member, feigning sleep in a noisy dormitory. Minutes from being invited to dinner by Tiffany kneeing her in the side, rudely mentioning eating disorders. Where Jessica wrote her order on a whiteboard and looked to the others for help, confirmation.

That’s what kept their team sane: the ability to speak their minds.



Verily, Bae Soojin appeared at the “Girls Only” concert.

As a host.

“I could stand Jinnie mooing through a four-minute song,” Jessica groaned, enduring a monitor of Jinnie and Kim Heechul introducing the next act. Their over-the-top narration abounded. “An MC? Seriously?”

Taeyeon, hair primmed to the finest order, pouted glittery lips. “Shouldn’t have slain all those peasants in my past life.”

They laughed. Time spent together backstage was a big plus.

“Tae, I’d kiss you, but I’d be wearing the evidence for the next two days.”

“I found glitter in my panties,” the singer whined. “Dong-gun hired the spaciest crew of stylists. I’m Tinkerbell on shrooms.”

Jessica winked, blowing a kiss instead. “I once fantasized about fucking a faerie.”

“Freak.”

The rest of Skandl curbed impending dialogue, waving their presence. Sunny, as tastelessly sparkly as Taeyeon, planted a hand on her orange miniskirted hip. “Are we interrupting?”

“‘Sup, Jess.” Yuri’s bunny ears were too chipper for her sullen face. She nudged their lead singer in the thigh. “Ready to make asses of ourselves?”

Taeyeon blew her cheeks out, owning repulsive over-aegyo. “Hell ya!”

Sunny appeared unamused. “You bitches don’t even write music. If anyone should be pissed and cynical, it’s me.”

“Aren’t you?”

“This is an occupational hazard,” she explained. “You deal with it.”

True. Jessica almost agreed out loud. Sensing ever-present tension, she chose against it. “Nice DJing earlier.”

Sunny’s set had been pushed to the beginning of the show, deterring viewers who’d arrive late to omit younger groups. Elevating dark eyes screened Jessica’s outfit--a simple babydoll dress. “Thanks. Is Tiffany gonna steal my song?”

“What about me?”

The question died on the musician’s lips as the remaining Lucky Six members circled their space. Jessica peeked around, nary recalling a moment when all nine of them occupied the same breathing area.

Tiffany bobbed on her heels. “Hey, Yul.”

Yuri glimpsed to Taeyeon, Sunny, and to Tiffany, visually calculating a response. “‘Ey.”

Not even a full ‘hey’. Eek. Witnessing the gentle woman do anything less than go molten at her ex’s smile zapped cheer.

Except for one person’s. “Y’all have sequin herpes.”

Everyone ceded thankful chuckles. Im Yoona: Tension shatterer on demand.

Sunny held her arms out, lips attractively curved. “Bring in some love, Yoong.”

For a hair of a second, Jessica wondered if Sunny was plotting some sort of espionage on her Lucky pal. That’d be a good method of getting to her. Although, Sunny’s rainbow eye smile as she spun a squealing Im Yoona in circles squashed her paranoia. Just a matter of time until Yoona wandered from a violated closet, picking glitter off her tongue. Jessica cringed at the thought.

Mindful of the shiny/sexy concept that’d ratcheted Taeyeon’s angst, Jessica flossed their fingers, drawing her close. “It’ll only be three songs, babe.”

“Three of our newest crapsicles,” she corrected.

“Do your best?”

When Taeyeon flattened her smirk, pupils drifting to the right, Jessica checked, too. A sharkish man in a sleek suit materialized--hands sweeping on a tablet, eyes trained to their handholding. His voice was deep. “Impromptu meeting, Skandl. Fraternizing time is done.”

Taeyeon flexed a suddenly clammy palm. Jessica wouldn’t weaken her grip. “We’re friends, sir. I thought we could say a few words as a group?” Without waiting for rejection, she grasped Seohyun’s hand, who caught on seamlessly, snatching Sooyoung’s fingers from her hair. Around the ring connections went until Yoona’s thin fingers engulfed Taeyeon’s fist.

Tiffany bitchglared at the dude, making Jessica proud to have her on their side again. “Could you give us, I don’t know...thirty seconds?”

Dong-gun grinned something vicious. “Skandl. I’ll be…” He pointed 100 feet away. “Nearby. You have thirty seconds. Starting…”

Taeyeon wasn’t joking; he resembled a villain. Jessica brought their hands to her face, granting a quick kiss.

“Alright, Many of us aren’t religious-types, so I’ll keep this secular,” Tiffany started, bowing her head, “Please, let’s not fuck up out there. We’ve worked too hard, come too far…”

A pause. Jessica cracked an eye, watching Tiffany regard Yuri.

She continued. “And, nebulously non-theistic universe entity, heal our hearts. So that we’ll see with those rather than our eyes. Those only reflect our sordid feelings. Which isn’t fair for anyone else.” She straightened her throat, probably counting her seconds. “Strangers worship us, but we make mistakes as crazy as them. Crazier, I bet. May this be a night to remember.”

“By the might of your blue cheeks, shall we kick ass, Krishna!”

They giggled at the outburst. Tiffany agreed. “Yes, shall we kick ass.”

The groups parted, galaxies away from their stuffy lack of chemistry at previous music shows. Progress. Yet, as Jessica watched her bedazzled girlfriend bow plastically to their new manager, uneasiness touched her gut.

This surely would be a night to remember.

i was totally planning on leaving a comment on your last chapter last night, but alas, oitnb came out early and it was my duty as a wiild lesbian to fulfil my binge watching duties. HAVE NO FEAR, THO. i have arrived. and shit, LA, this fic is honestly so incredible i am just so??? sighs happily abt this fic for a very long time.

JESSICA AND TIFFANY. BABIES. CUTIES. am i the only person that thinks they aren't all that different after all? tiffany is sort of edgier, more manipulative, and more bae jinnie-esque, but they're not all that different after all. honestly, i'm so happy they've come full circle. the balance between where they were, and where they are now, is incredible. you've written them to grow both separately and as friends and you deserve all the kudos and probs for that -- it's not easy and you've done it so so well!!

SOOJUNG. i love soojung. everyone loves soojung. soojung is flawless. soojung as a sassy lil gay blazing it up in america is truly what dreams are made of and it's probably not that far from reality. i mean wha???

i'm loving this sunyoon i can't even lie. ARE THEY GONNA HOOK UP LA, ARE THEY? surely you could shake the magic 8 ball and let me know, right?

this fic just keeps getting better and better. just when you thought it couldn't get any gayer -- it does. but this fic has so many layers beyond who's dating who, and i personally think that you've hit the mark with every chapter. TELL ME YOUR SECRETS because this is a wild ride and it just gets better and better.

Getting JeTi to this stage was...interested a slightly painful. 1. Wrapping shizz up in stories rather than inserting new drama is :((( 2. I LAHVED them being bitchy at one another. So sexy.

"SOOJUNG. i love soojung. everyone loves soojung. soojung is flawless."--I swear she's a scene-stealer in the best way. I should rename this story Soojung! ;DDD OMG IF IRL SOOJUNG IS EVEN REMOTELY LIKE THIS...*holds hand over drumming heart AS IF SHE ISN'T HOT ENOUGH.

Edit:

Your words amuse me to no end. "Pilot sounded drunk." "In the boob-ular area." And Soojung and Taeyeon's meeting is so sweet. Love Jung's no nonsense attitude because it made Taeyeon so honest. Taeyeon's my favourite character here because she goes from badass to mush in five seconds, especially when it comes to Jessica.

“You’re not a Lucky duty, bear. You’re a Jessica Jung duty.” This is just so aww-worthy.

And I see that jeti moment there! Thanks for feeding my jeti heart ;; Jeti is so rare nowadays. Your update was like an oasis in the desert of jeti.

Love that OT9 at the end. Oh tee 9 is love.

I just hope jinnie doesn't screw shit up in the next update (even though she probably will, because bae jinnie is trouble.) Please don't break my taengsic heart ;;

Thanks for this update! Made my day! :))))

WELCOME. :DD *clears a speshul spot for you*

I'm here to amuse! I'm a naturally "heheeheheharharhar" type, so amusing you by my silliness is a huge bonus of writing. ^^ Taeyeon certainly needed some no-nonsense talk. Since nobody else out there would really bring it up from an outside perspective.

Taeyeon's my favourite character here because she goes from badass to mush in five seconds, especially when it comes to Jessica.-- She doessss. Her feelings are clear~

Ohhhhh girl. About that JeTi moment. I sat in my room, in the dark...thinking: I SHOULD JUST MAKE THEM MAKEOUT HURHURHUR. But, my buzzkill logical side reminds me that it'd derail the path of the story. So, enjoy the JeTi interactions and know that the writer contemplated their chemistry, too.

OT9 is love. No lies.

Ha! Everyone's traumatized by Jinnie. You don't want a Taennie ending?? *cackles*

Okay, I know I suck... A LOT, but better late than never. =D Forgive me lol I managed to catch up.... after a really long time lol Finals, graduation, Netflix (OMG I binge watched Fringe, Agents of Shield, just started Orange is the New Black and New Girl. I think I'm trying to make up for lost TV time after college happened.) road trips, and friends all got in the way! I'm sorry for being MIA. T__T


Anyway, well I guess I should say that I'm surprised that Yuri gave up Tiffany. I would have never guessed that one. I guess I just doubt Taengsic's relationship more hahahaha YES I have no faith in you to keep my OTP alive, Bra! Hahahaha JK JK I really appreciate the effort. It's going better than I had expected. Their relationship is getting much strong and I love the idea of that! lol Although I feel sorry for Fany, she's so depressed it seems and Yuri's like cool with it, well maybe at least it seems like she's cool with it on the outside. I'm glad Jessica is helping Fany get through this even though she was such a bitch to her and Taeyeon before. Karma's a bitch a guess. =/


OMG Taengsic was so cute in this chapter!!! Krystal is awesome and Moody Bear is actually afraid of her or at least she was afraid of giving a bad first impression. I mean meeting family members is always awkward isn't it? Gosh, a few summers ago, my boyfriend then made me meet his whole entire family by guilt tripping me. XD I was so awkward and uncomfortable hahaha Maybe I'm just awkward in general. That's probably it. Hahaha Have you ever experienced something like this?

Oh and BIG NEWS! I managed to get tickets to see Bigbang in October hahaha don't know how I did that but I'm excited!!! I'm still a Sone though so no worries.

BTW how are you doing? Is life treating you well? In the last two chapters, you said that you would stop writing for a while, but it didn't seem like that happened. XD

YOU DON'T SUCK. :((( Your life sounds crazy busy. I can relate. Between parties, job stuff, portfolio work, parties, hang outs, etc., MIA status happens. You know I'll be here, arms open wide and accepting. ♥

HAHHA do you STILL have no faith in Taeyeon?? Catching you off guard with YulTi's enough for me, I suppose. :P hehehe and whyyyyy don't you trust me? Not like I have a history of smashing ships~~~

"she's so depressed it seems and Yuri's like cool with it"--Our YulTi bbs really handle break ups differently. I guess part of Yul's feelings are simply...confusion. She knew enough to break up, but she still feels in the dark. She's feeling it on the inside, tho. :((

Taeyeon SHOULD be afraid of Soojung. I would be, in that situation. Hahaahaha. Ughhh don't get me started on meeting SO parents....>.> OH GAWWWD THAT SOUNDS SO AWKWARD. Something similar happened--except it was my parents kinda meeting my gf....one of the most painfully cringeworthy moments of my life. Sooooo awk. I get ick just thinking about it.

ANYWAYS.

Ayyyyyyyy that should be a great show!! Have all the fun!!! I'm crazy excited for KCON. :DDD

I love the title of this chapter!!!
When I first looked at it I’m like “Is this what I think it could be or is this a metaphor…? Would Bra really..?” And it totally was what I thought when it came up during the Jungsis/Tae videochat. Yaaaas! Add this to another one of my favorite Skandl titles!

Aaaand here are some of the other things I especially enjoyed this chapter:

The scene where Krystal grilled Tae is amazing and so fun. Tae got the “Soojung” stamp of approval. Reading that made me really happy. Then, the moments leading in to it were great to read as well. Really reinforces how serious Taengsic are getting, especially this exchange: “You have to be compatible with my family.”/“Why should I?”/ “Because someday, I’d like you to meet my parents and grandparents and cousins…I consider you the one...If you want.”/“The one. Okay.” Daaaaaaw, I felt the warm fuzzies. Made me think of one of the earliest exchanges where they couldn't even say the "W" word :).

The Sixer slumber party! Their teamwork scenes always are great to read. In addition, I also loved the BTS moments the two groups had to together at the end of the chapter. The banter and the prayer made me bust up.

It seems like JeTi are making up. Jess really is Supergirl. Hopefully, Tiff doesn’t blow it this time for the sake of Lucky Six AND Skandl.

YULTI. My shipper heart. I felt the feels when Jess and Tiff had the last name discussion and then when Yul rightfully gave Madame Hwang the cold shoulder backstage. If YulTi does fix things and eventually settles down with that house (after the whole Kpop circus is done), I wonder which surname name they’d secretly go by -- or maybe hyphenated? Don’t mind me. Random Skandl fic headcannon thoughts XD.

And finally, just have to say it: F*CKING JINNIE! She's back as an MC!! I died when that was revealed. Just reinforces how resourceful and resilient this lady can be.

Thank you for the update. As always, looking forward to the next!

Hahahahah I must reiterate how THRILLED I am that you (and others?) notice my cut titles. And you know I had to grab one of Soojung's quotes to head the chapter. She's a treasure trove.

OMGOMGOMG You brought up a past chapter, contrasting it with the current TaengSic. Yaaaaasssss, YAAAS Anon. FOUR FOR YOU, YAS COCO. Isn't the distinction so clear, tho? Couldn't even voice "wife" or anything remotely close to love (Tae used 'stupid' often) and now they're talking about meeting the fam. Siiiiigh. :') Thinking about them 'getting serious' gives me jitters, idek why. Good jitters. ^^

"The Sixer slumber party! Their teamwork scenes always are great to read."--I love them Shows progress and idk how readers feel, but it calms me as a writer. It closes some chapters. Makes us know that characters are going to be okay in the future. Oh gawd that last prayer. I wish praying happened like that more often. haha

YulTiiii. ;(((( Ohhhhmyg you brought up the last name. Good job! It can be easily overlooked, though it reveals Tiffany's vulnerability. She lost that. D:

I'm very curious about your Skandl! headcanon, tbh. :OOO

HAHAHHAHA JINNIE IS EMPRESS OF THE WORLD. Jk she wishes. If anything, she's resourceful and resilient. Gotta give her that.

Re head cannon: In my humble opinion, if Yulti fix things and do get married, I think Tiffany would want to become a Kwon. Right now, I can't remember what her family background is, but the way the Kwons (especially Mom) welcome her with open arms and just adore her plus how crazy she is for YulStallion, I could see those adding to reasons she'd be down. Yul would secretly be super stoked about it, but she'd be still thoughtful and considerate and would want to talk it through with Tiff. She'd prob even be down with taking up Hwang, or hyphen, or even just keeping their own surnames (just as long as she and Tiff are together she'd be happy), but Tiff would echo Jess and be like "Nope. It's Mrs. & Mrs. Kwon, or bust."

Haha! And scene. Looking forward to the next chapter!

Now, I should decide whether to honor your happiness to send that pairing flying off the closest cliff. :DD

BUT REALLY. Omgggggg SO PRESH. You got my bbs' personalities down, esp that last "Mrs. and Mrs. Kwon" line: Tiffany wants that marker of marriage. She's probably name herself 'Kwon Tiffany Kwon' for double coverage. And Yul's easygoing. She'd let her.

Okay... *Enters shamefully*
I AM SO BEHIND OMG. LIKE 7 COMMENTS, BUT I SHALL DO IT, FINALS SHALL END AND I WILL CRASH YOUR COMMENTS LIKE A CRAZY GAY.

ANYWAYYYYY.

HOLY SHIT, DAT MEETING. Soojung is so daring, UNF.
LOVED LOVED how Tae automatically goes all: "holy shit, gotta act cool with the sister-in-law" and then she reassures her so subtly about truly loving Sica awww, but then she gets comfortable and mentions her never-ending love for weed and ugh. WHAT A CATCH SICA. I AM SO JELLY. STONED TAEYEON>>>>

OMG LAUGHED WAY TOO HARD AT: 'Soojung looked stunned as well. “I wish I recorded that.”' OMG SOOJUNG YOU FUCKER I ALREADY LOVE YOU.

I hope you don't crush our dreams and keep this perfect Taengsic state all the way through the fic. May Taengsic live happily without any problem. omg. *shaking*

'Taeyeon grinned triumph. “Let’s...get naked?”' GOD I NEED A TAEYEON. I SWEAR SHE IS THE BEST MIX OF BABY BEAR WITH ASSHOLE. (plus, she would totes like Björk, reference to older chaps. omgggg)

JETI JETI JETI SWEET MOMENT JETI. OMG. Loving how Jessica, or, should I say Angel Sica is not an asshole to Fany as the latter has been to her and her girlfriend.
Gotta say I kind of feel bad for Fany, but at the same time I think she is SICK. if she has had bad intentions before, it's almost a sure thing she will have them again in the near or far future.

Well well well, that OT9 moment:
T'was just... BREATHTAKING.
That fondness for breaking hearts you've got<3

*horny mode* IM YOONGIE MMMMMMM SO RECKLESS AND UNADVISED BUT SO HOT N' ATTRACTIVE DAYUMMMM, SHE IS A BABE, "SEQUIN HERPES" OMG SLAYED ME SO MUCH (*Chanting* fingers fingers fingers omf-).

And, holy shit. Prince Yul's "Ey." Ouch. Take it wholly, Fany.
Honestly I'm still dwelling on the possibility of Fany deserving that or maybe my heart is softening because Yul is her soft spot and well she's getting hit right there and she's a plushie-hugging mess now owww.

Still, I wouldn't be thoughtful about the situation and would break in to steal Yulstallion and ride her- ahem, I mean console her and get Tippachan out of the picture together *evil laughs*NO MERCY.

Then again, praising your work I lie here, Checkie. AAAAnd sorry for the length, again.(the only good length is Yoongie fingers' OHM-)

WELCOME BACK. :DDD

Now, for this Grade-A spazzing. I bet this is/was your major in college.

SOOJUNG AND UNF ARE SYNONYMS. NEVER FORGET.

HAHAHA does Stoner!Taeyeon get you going, bb?? My goodness, your flawless taste. ;D I AGREE ABOUT LOVING BJORK. But yeah, Taeyeon's moods acclimate a few times for the duration of the Soojung convo. She does whatever she can to please the fam...and Jessica, of course. ^^

"OMG SOOJUNG YOU FUCKER I ALREADY LOVE YOU."--SOOJUNG SPEAKS WITHOUT THINKING. ♥♥

Heh. Heh. Still shaking about TaengSic's comfy state? I'll either stay generous or BE A DOUCHE AND DROP ALL THE BOMBS.

Lots of JeTiiiiiiii. It's gonna take a while to fully trust Fany, definitely. Angel Sica's up for it, tho.

"That fondness for breaking hearts you've got<3"--Awwwwwww did the OT9 part tickle your feels, too? Hope not too much. Idk. This story's AU, yet putting them all in the same room, holding hands...I couldn't resist.

YulTi's a fun dynamic (and askljf to write) because on one hand, they're SO presh together and seem attached at the heart. On the other hand, Fany could have ruined bonds between the people around them. That's a big deal. Let's see if Yul's feeling cold for long.

(*Chanting* fingers fingers fingers omf-) and (the only good length is Yoongie fingers' OHM-)--HAHAHHAHAHAH PREACHHHHH.

alright, taengsic + krystal is one of my weaknesses. i get great enjoyment when krystal grills taeyeon its like jess is too gone for her gf so thank god for her lil sis to be the one to call out tae on her shit. also, tae is very right bout the jungsis resemblance; jungsis are so hot im ngl im girl crushin' hard for the jungs...jungsisbian maybe? or is it jungsexual? idk fandom terms

i love jeti scenes in this fic. why are they such a perfect match for each other? i say that, but then i say i still have a hard time regarding tiffany though maybe we should all follow jess' lead and go with the benefit of the doubt.

i WISH we had a rl girls only concert. i mean, i guess this upcoming girl group summer comeback is something as close to it. and the ot9 drop...:((((((( i wasn't expecting that either now im torn :( but look at how far both groups have come to stand and huddle together (and it's mostly cuz of jess MY CINNAMON ROLL), like taeyeon'd rather die than be within 20 feet from them AH, CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT.

also, here's hoping skandl can stab their sequins into donggum's eyes. fuck that guy.

Taeyeon has Jungitis. Got those heart eyes for the Jungs, which is quite understandable. I'm happy to tap into this weakness of yours. ;D This Soojung + Taeyeon + Jessica foray was a thrill to write, but I had to keep in mind their mixture of personalities. Can't think of Soojung being all open arms about Tae. They needed this.

HAHAHA you agree about the Jung resemblance. ;D When I saw them up close, they're WAY more similar than I anticipated. (didn't check their boobs, tho) :000 JUNGSEXUALS UNITE. Unffffff

JeTi, even when they were fights, are ♥♥♥. Tiffany's journey to trustville will go beyond this story~

I WOULD LOVE THIS CONCERT. Can they have it in America, pleasseeee??? omgomgomg I hope the OT9 drop didn't make you too sadface. :((

"look at how far both groups have come to stand and huddle together...like taeyeon'd rather die than be within 20 feet from them"--;____; THANK YOU FOR NOTICING. Hehehe cinnamon roll Jessica :33

Loved every comment, babes. See you soon ^^

*stifles sobs* You must always break my heart right? That early in a chapter TSK.

Since, like everything, this involved Taeyeon--- I AM SORRY I FIND THIS EXTREMELY TEAR JERKING THOUGH I DIDN'T REALLY CRY.

Someone needs to kill that part of Sunny that always remains with Taeyeon and ship the corpse to Yoona. Either that, or kill me so I won't be tortured by the subtle sunyeon angst. It hurts me D;

But, I forgive you, because... SOOJUNG.

So-Soojung ♥︎__♥︎ I ADDRESS HER AS SOOJUNG CAUSE I AM FAMILY. I AM THE ONE FOR HER, SUCK IT BISHES.

Screenwriting. You know, that's like my major in college. Yes, don't doubt, no I don't do economics, what are you saying. THANKS FOR MAKING SOOJUNGXRAY REAL, I SCREENCAPPED OUR CONVO AND LIKE I AM SO TEMPTED TO BRING IT UP HERE BUT TOO LAZY. EVERYBODY GO AWAY, IT IS RAYSTAL SHIDAE OKAY? f(raystal), WHICHEVER FORMAT. HAH.

Oh and I approve of Taeyeon, since you know I'm the screenwriter!gf and like yeah, Tae you're good, just woman up kays? Soojung though, so sassy, I loved her interaction with Tae and how bare she makes Taeyeon, she practically spilled everything to Soojung, despite meeting her for the very first time. Yes, bb Tae, prove me right, spill everything I've been saying about you to Soojung, go go go! Pfft. But I actually felt relieved, hearing Taeyeon say all of that, the revenge, the trainee!Tae, the betrayal and need to prove herself. Is this a turning point for her, in the character sense? Hmmmm.

And oh Tae, you're so deep in Jessica (:shifty:), so obvious here :3

OHHH ANNDDDDD, child-like Taeyeon, so squishy. "With your um, Jessica. Exclusively.” Her face brightened, another thought breezing through. “Your sister! I like your sister a lot." --- basically, everything about this line is perfect, I can imagine it and it summarises Taengsic so well. They are so sweet, I'm sick. Taeyeon's like this cutie girl in pigtails with a huge rainbow lollipop. If you had told me that she'll turn into this glop of gooey sugar pool... I'll still read this~ <3

Psst. I spy YoonSun's progress. Good, well done~ AND I LOVE YOONA. SEQUIN HERPES. I AM CREYING SO HARD. GAHH. I LOVE YOONA I LOVE HER OMG.

BUT WHAT IS THIS OMINOUS ENDING. HOLY BRA. >___> TSK.

P.S: Landing strip isn't slutty, I like it Soojung, I like everything (and nothing) on you. :3

Can I be honest? I review the things you quote. And sometimes....I'll read the part like, "I wrote this?!" HAHAHHAHAHAAA I'll give it to ya--dang, that "involved Taeyeon" part is...dayum. Poor Sunny.

I can't kill youuuuu. :333 Will that part of Sunny ever disappear? Idk.

SOOJUNG??? SOOJUNG WHO??

I HAD NO IDEA YOU WERE SO *CLOSE* TO THE JUNGS. FINE. CALL HER SOOJUNG. She'd prolly punch you in the face...and you'd get sexual gratification from it.

Hahhahahah BRING THE SCREENSHOT. BECAUSE YOU'RE PRESSED STILL, RIGHT??? I'm screaming so much on here!!!

"Tae you're good, just woman up kays?"--Legit. Soojungie's intimidating, tho. Supa sassy. And I like the way you put that--she makes Taeyeon bare. It's an effect of her feelings for Jessica, really. Getting along with the sister=success. Not that she wouldn't like her regardless.

Oooh a turning point. Hmmmm~~~

"And oh Tae, you're so deep in Jessica (:shifty:), so obvious here :3"
-- :shifty: She is.

AREN'T THEY SOOOOO FRICKIN' FLUFFY?!? I MAKE MYSELF SICK. D:

Hehehehe sequin herpes. Baby Yoongie is perfect and Sunny'd totally handle this ball of crack. I LOVE HER MORE. BACK OFF.

<_< O-ominous...?? PS: Oh, gurl. I think you're deeper than Taeyeon is for Jessica. Not physically, tho. ;D

MY EYES HURT FROM THE CONSTANT STARING OF THE SCREEN

Sunnnyyyyyy i miss you D:

DAMMIT WHY DID THE SEXY TIMES HALT? THIS IS NOT ACCEPTABLE

"Soojung will outbitch you in seconds." < I love this for some reason...I wonder if Krystal could out-bitch Tiffany....let's put them in a room alone together and find out yasssss. My money is on Tiffany tho, for obvious reasons >_> and yes i still hold that grudge

oMG I've found another spirit animal, KRYSTAL COME ERE YOU LOVEABLE LITTLE BRAT. Altho her stoned antics are way more exciting than mine, yesterday for example; getting ridic baked and then taking way too much enjoyment out of cycling (okay tat sounded dirty but it wasn't intended that way) and then falling asleep at my desk for 14 hours....

Damn this is like the Spanish Inquisition, I feel sorry for little taegaybear

Well well well I'm not sure if i should throw another >_> at Tiffany or let her off just this once....

YASSSS SKANDL 6 TOGETHER 5 LYFE MY BBYSSSS

OKAY THANK FOR WRITING, THIS WAS FUN, ONTO THE NEXT ONEEE

YOUR EYES THANK YOU. THIS IS GOOD SCREEN-STARING.

I feel like I yell so much in replies to you. >.> BECAUSE I’M SO ESSITED TO ANSWER YOUUU~

Y-you miss Sunny?? But she’s right there. D:

HALT ALL THE SEXITIMES. DON’T BLAME THE WRITER.

”I wonder if Krystal could out-bitch Tiffany....let's put them in a room alone together and find out yasssss. My money is on Tiffany tho, for obvious reasons >_> and yes i still hold that grudge”—I’m laughing at ALL OF THIS. hahahhahahahaaaaaa

‘LOVABLE BRAT’ fits Soojung so well. :3333

Cycling?? Like, on a bicycle or….washing clothes? heh. Your high adventures sound pretty healthy, at least. xDD

One does not simply date a Jung. You’ll get grilled.

Throw all the <.< at Tiffany. You’ll still never break your love for her~

SKANDL!6 AYYYYYYYYY

FUN FUN FUN SEEYA AT THE NEXT :D
