A/N: P.S. This is my first time writing a fanfic, and I’m still a college senior too, so I’ll only be able to update this (hopefully) once every week, or more than that if my schedule permits! Also, don’t worry, because even though this story centers on Panwink, Jinhwi and Ongniel, all eleven members of Wanna One (+ other trainees!) will be featured in this story. And don't forget to check out the Author's Note at the end of each chapter, that's where I dish on the school system and other fun facts regarding this story. I hope you guys like it!

ARC 1. PANWINK
“Why is it so hard to say those three words? Because I’m worried that I’ll never hear them back. It’s like an author dying and leaving a story unfinished before it has the chance turn into a masterpiece.”
“No matter how cheerful the song, I will only feel any emptying sort of sadness if I have to perform it onstage without you. But oh, if we both make it, I want a kiss by the way.”
ARC 2. JINHWI
“If love was a person I don’t think I’d like him. He’s like that toxic friend you welcome at first and then can never be rid of… But I think love walked through the door of my home a long time ago. On that day we first met, it entered into my life and locked the door behind it.”
“I’ll debut no matter what. I’ll become an idol even if it kills me. But if I have to do it without you, I guess I’ll just have to wait for my chance to do it in the next life.”
ARC 3. ONGNIEL
“If you never liked me back just say it-- I don’t want your honey-sweet kisses if they’re poisoned with lies. But if your lips speak the truth, no matter how harsh, its release will be the sweetest thing I’ll ever have tasted.”
“This school is a joke. But even if I joined some survival program and got famous in some other life, I’d rather stay here if that means I’d never met you.”
