We Don't Sell Our Souls

Description

He had this look in his eyes, like he was seeing past all the concrete walls and dusty windows, into the heart of the city. Not everyone in Seoul had seen its deepest crevices. Usually, Naeil was either immediately drawn or repelled by people like this. But when it came to Min Yoongi…she wasn’t sure what to think at all.

The wind came through and Naeil felt strands of her hair tickling her cheeks, making them tingle. His hair, too, was brushed against his pale forehead, blown by the same wind she felt on her skin. His face glowed with the same pleasure at the chilling rush of that breeze.

He disappeared with the smoke.

That was how it should have ended—so why did he have to reappear? He was from a darker world, the cruel part of Seoul that Naeil had been running from all her life. Turns out, she wasn’t the only one running.

Foreword

This story wasn’t supposed to exist. I told myself I wouldn’t write another one after I finished the first, but I couldn’t help it (oops?).

Last fanfic I wrote was to help me practice my writing. I’m writing this because there are a lot of aspects of the HYYH/Wings era that have really affected me personally entering adulthood and trying to find myself. I’m sure some of you have felt the same.

There's a lot of cool symbolism BTS/their managers put effort into for HYYH/Wings MVs, but it doesn't play a big part in this fanfic (like none of the multiple personality stuff, sorry). I feel like there is a lot of story you can pull from the characters presented in those MVs which express a lot of the things we go through in life, and I wanted to focus on those inner stories. You'll probably notice a looooot of things from MVs in this fanfic.

Even though this story is nearer to my heart than the last one, I still have the same goals:

1. Finish it

2. Make it enjoyable/entertaining

3. Make it understandable, readable, and with good grammar

But this time with more of a focus on expressing myself rather than just writing well.

And like I said before, even though I’m writing BTS fanfic, I hope anyone will enjoy reading this just as a good story on its own!!

I will gladly and super enthusiastically take any feedback, positive or negative! The best part of writing for me is interacting with all of you who take the time to read my work and share your thoughts on it!!!

 

All that aside.............

I’M SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO PUMPED FOR THIS STORYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY

Chapter 14: I hope Naeil will come to warm up to Yoon Gi, at least a bit, and that they will get along.

Tae Hyung's question about the squirrels' tails killed me xp

Chapter 14: Oooo, that roof scene! I hope one day Naeil and Yoongi will have a civil conversation up there without naeil getting all territorial. (Or they have to hide from someone and they run up there to only end up getting caught, and then someone bursts through the doors to be their hero’s) Poor Jimin! I hope he opens up to Hoseok sooner or later cause I doubt keeping it in will do any good, especially in a story like this. *Sigh* this is why I don’t trust seemly good people... Oh pastor lee, what have you’ve gotten yourself into... Funny thing, I kinda wish for a future fight scene in the ramyeon shop. Don’t know why, but it just suddenly came up. Also, how was your exam? Did you die, or nearly die?

Chapter 12: Ugh! I'm so curious about everything!! *o*

Chapter 11: I love how sweet Pastor Lee is, seriously I wanna hug him. There should be more people like that in the world! Hope Yoon Gi and Naeil will play together some time, it'd be beautifully romantic~

Chapter 11: Bahahaha! Maybe Naeil’s fingers are made out of iron! I hope Yoongi will soon reveal the true reason of his daily visits to play piano. Though, I hope it won’t get interrupted by an emergency. (Cough cough, Jungkook getting into trouble, or jimin) I also hope we’ll get a scene where naeil plays piano with Yoongi! Maybe where she shows how to play the bach prelude in sequences. Or just random playing that turns into an actual song.

Chapter 10: I just noticed that the chapters are a bit short... But whatever.

Chapter 10: Oh dear. Jimin better not end up being kidnapped or used as bait. Jungkook’s in the gang?! That’s definitely gonna have some sort of consequences whether for the good or for bad. (Probs bad, at this rate)

Chapter 9: Finally they meet again! Yay!

I think it's a bit normal that the story moves a bit slowly since the chapters are quite short. But that makes me really curious, not annoyed, I can't wait for the next chapters! To me, the best parts are the interactions between the characters, I really love them, so I hope there will be even more interactions later. Though, I don't see worse parts or things I don't want to see moving forward. You're doing a really good job!!
