To Hear the Angels Sing


“You’re an angel, Jinki. Don’t limit your mind.”

Lee Jinki dies in late November but he is not prepared for the people he's about to meet at Head Quarter nor the challenges that will arrive when he returns to Earth to make Christmas special for a certain someone that doesn't immediately think he's a gift sent from above. 
And love? Well, love may be a thing nobody really expected.






“Hey, look, it’s a mistletoe!” Kibum says and Jinki stops in his track when he realizes that there are mistletoes hung on the lines above their heads and that they’re standing right below one. Kibum wiggles his eyebrows suggestively and Jinki’s heart speeds up.
“Don’t be stupid,” he says and looks around. Kibum laughs.
“Are you scared?” he asks and Jinki turns back to him with an incredulous look.
“Yeah,” he says like it’s logical and Kibum snickers. “Who would want to kiss you?”

His reply has Kibum choking on saliva and Jinki laughs when he runs away while Kibum charges after him. People look at them like they’re stupid and immature but in this moment, there is nothing Jinki wants to feel more than this free together with Kibum. And Kibum’s laughter only makes it better.

They end up in Kibum’s living room, a Christmas movie playing on the TV but none of them is watching. Kibum is running his hands through Jinki’s hair and Jinki is contemplating telling Kibum he won’t be there for New Years.
“Hey,” Kibum says and pulls a little on Jinki’s hair. Jinki winces and sits up instead of lying down. “Did you mean it when you said you were scared at the market?”
Jinki blinks a little while he thinks back to the market. He tilts his head slightly before he shrugs a little.
 “I don’t like getting insulted publicly and you never know what those drunk men at the mulled wine stand would do to a gay couple.”
Only when he has said the words does he realize what they sound like.
“I mean …” he tries but Kibum nods a little and it interrupts Jinki’s sentence and provokes him into silence.
“So if I told you I stole a piece of mistletoe and brought it back here, would you kiss me?”
i'm honestly very fond of the christmas angel au. it was a prompt i found somewhere that grew immensely and i hate it for growing but also just ... what a precious thing, really. 

i know i shouldn't write christmas stories like this in september but it feels right. it feels so right so i'm going to do it anyway. I didn't know it would evolve into 20k but guys, things happen apparently. i hope you survive.

i also hope you enjoy if you decide to read. genuinely. this is for you and for onkey. 
christmas is a wonderful time. 

also, a small advertisement-thing because i'm in love with this prompt "shop". it's called
spectacular cupcake and you should definitely check it out. (and no, i'm not paid to advertise, heh.)

Took me a while to read this, but I planned on leaving a comment once I had.

My living human soul can't take the amount of time and love you put into any story you write.

I feel like this genuinely happened (although, it can't have really happened because thankfully our idols are alive) but omygosh! That's how your stories make me feel. They pull me in so deep and once they're over I feel so lost!

Where's the live ongoing documentary on OnKey that we deserve xD

This was seriously amazing ^^; Thank you for creating another piece of magic.
Chapter 5: This is sooo beautiful and nice!! My onkey heart is screaming in joy when I read this and all the feels from this ;;; I'm glad to finally be able to read another onkey fic after yes a long time. Thank you for writing this author nim ? Their love here is soo beautiful and sweet i feel so full!!! it ends perfectly but I won't mind if there would be a drabble or a lil bit of continuation of their life after kibum joins jinki there XD Ahhh so nice!!! Well done,really!!!
