The Middle of December

Baekhyun and Chanyeol are neighbors in the same grade, but that's where the similarities end. A snow day during their freshman year of high school reveals that they may not be as different as they think.




This was written for Avi/baek-yeols bday, based on this lovely photo of snow covered houses. It was going to be a drabble, 14.8k later I was looking at the longest singular unchaptered work I've ever written! I wrote this BEFORE MiD came out and I've not heard/watched any of the songs/MVs. The piano version of Heart Attack was playing through most of it, but if there's a particular MiD track that comes to mind,  I'd love to hear which song(s) you feel fits the story \o/

Anyway I'm babbling, but this is for all of you who supported PR and my other writing this year, it's not my best but it's packed with feelz and I'd REALLY love to know what you think of it, as it's kind of different for me!

Happy Holidays and lots of ♡!

Ok this story, this story is beautiful, heartbreaking, but magical. I'm in love with this story. I really feel for Chanyeol and Baekhyun in this story. Just the struggle they go through. How Chanyeol has to struggle with who he is and the denial and being afraid of what others will think. And poor beautiful Baek is just so amazing. He puts up with Chanyeol going through all this for years. He has to go through the fact that he is gay himself but takes it in stride when there is just so much loneliness for him. It's really heartbreaking because this is so realistic and there are people who go through this exact situation. I can hardly explain how much this story makes me feel. I just thank you for this amazing masterpiece.

Chapter 1: It was a realistic oneshot with self acceptance and the trouble with it. I thought it would had a sad ending, but now I'm happy that it was not so. The story was good, thank you for that.
