Description

Im Yeonhee loves her country.  She really does.  But some people in it are kind of a waste of space, and there are problems and divisions in Taderra that run a bit too deep to fix.

Part-time artist, full-time separationist republican, and current university student, Yeonhee has some solutions, and as a leading student activist, she has a very large following.

National health care and welfare benefits cost billions every year.  Racial tensions between the largely working and middle class Hanmi (like Yeonhee) and the much smaller, mostly middle and upper class Zenyu (like the royal family) are at an all-time high.  No one in government can agree on policy at all, because the Zenyu only want to help the Zenyu and the Hanmi only want to help the Hanmi, and any attempt to compromise either or fails.

As far as Yeonhee and anybody with any sense is concerned, it would be much easier to chop the country in half and let the Zenyu rule the Zenyu and the Hanmi rule the Hanmi, and to get rid of the antiquated system of monarchy that drains the country’s resources and epitomises everything that’s wrong with society.

The king is fat, ill, and lazy.  The queen spends most of her time using taxpayer money to swan off to gala dinners in gowns that cost more than the average person will make in a year.

And the prince – don’t get Yeonhee started on the crown prince.  There aren’t very many people Yeonhee would wish dead, but Crown Prince Yixing might just meet the criteria for that.  He’s a national embarrassment and on a whole other level of useless.  For most of his teen years, he made international headlines for continually acting out, and now that he’s in his early twenties, he’s not much better.  He doesn’t really seem to do much (do princes even have jobs, or are they just a black hole for public money?), except sometimes give a couple of speeches, and he’s not even good at that.  Most of the country still remembers that infamous occasion where he turned up hungover as the guest speaker for Yeonhee’s sister’s graduation from the best university in the country and threw up all over the vice chancellor on live TV.  Genuinely, if there was one person Yeonhee could legally kill, it would be Prince Yixing, and out of sheer frustration.

But when the prime minister is assassinated by Hanmi radicals and the king slips into a coma, Prince Yixing is the only person with a decent shot at uniting the country, and by a series of unfortunate events that Yeonhee can trace back to a certain sketch she uploaded onto the internet, Yixing has decided she’s his key to bringing the nation back together.

If only she’d never taken the request of a lonely fan to draw the description they’d given of a perfect date.

 

If only.

 

 

Too late.

 

Foreword

I can't guarantee a regular updating schedule because I'm super busy right now, but expect something at least once a month, quite possibly more often!

(I'm still working on some details, so one or two tags might change and/or specific people might appear in the characters section.  I might well also shorten the description.)

The plot won't be massively political.  I think.  I don't want to make it overly so.  And, well, Yeonhee is a university student.

 

Obviously, this is a work of complete and utter fiction.  I don't own EXO, their image, anything branded to SM (and the same goes for any other celebrities) or, well, anything except the plot and the original characters.

PLEASE DON'T PLAGIARISE.  Or translate.  I don't allow translations and plagiarism is stealing and grossly unfair.

Cover poster and background are by Yifanforver!  Cute poster by my lovely co-author get2herheart :)  Feel free to send in posters – they'll be featured on the next available chapter.

Posters link to the creator's profile page.

FEATURED: THURSDAY 10TH AUGUST 2017.

So it appears the algorithms have changed because it used to be that no author could have more than one of their fics featured every 6 months, but I must say, it was absolutely lovely to log in with the intention of updating a chapter and finding that this was on the front page!  Thank you all so much.  Surprisingly, more Lay fics than I'd expected have been featured (I think this is about the 25th or something in the tags that has been, though it's only about the 10th in which Lay is actually the main character and and the fic is an OC one), but nevertheless, he doesn't get as much attention as various other EXO members do and so it's an honour that this fic made it into the featured list.

 

As the author, there are just two things I ask of you.

1) Don't leave me a comment with "update soon!"  I won't, because I have an offline life and important things are happening in it.

However, if you're really, really looking forward to the next update and would like to know when it might be, I will happily tell you when I think I'll next be able to update if you message me.

2) Call me Korey!  No authornims here, thanks.  (And please don't call me Unnie, either.)

 

 

And if you're bored and stuck for something to read, then head on over here for some good EXO-OC fics:

In the meantime, I want to challenge you all to this!

Chapter 69: I realised a few chapters back that Zenyu people are Chinese (not China) and Hanmi people are the Koreans in this country, and I've been trying to translate the sentences in the respective languages whenever you mention the dialogue is spoken in the specific languages(dialects?) (I only know the very basic vocab though, so you can imagine the fails lol). It's just amazing how these people can easily switch from one to the other...

Chapter 69: Ew, is someone going to expose Mr. Handsome, Popular and Charming sometime soon at school? Like if he got arrested he obviously has some kind of fault, oh my god.

I figured there would be a huge backlash and people would be hating on her, but still, ugh. Her school sounds insane with all that vandalism and people threatening and hating her. I kind of want to know the mixed opinions of the public, though.

Thank goodness Minseok is okay (it's just temporary that he can't remember his daughter, right...?). And poor Jongin :(

YIXING IS ALSO ADORABLE OMFG the way he says stuff in one word and the "kiss" omg it's so cute even though he's like high on painkillers (reminds me of Leigh) ;-; The whole last part was so fluffy from Yeonhee being excited to see him awake to him telling her to stay DMAD fluff is my favourite fluff :')

Rip, what kind of threats did you get because of Minseok XD

Chapter 69: The way Yixing was like "kiss" reminded me of this video that I saw of this boy who was doped up on pain killers and he kept roasting his family but then he would act all cute and ask for a kiss from his mom or whoever was closest then go back to roasting them XD I couldn't stop laughing at the video or Yixing XD
