This AU takes place in a world where everyone has both a platonic and a romantic soulmate, and they can really only be happy when they have both in their lives to keep them balanced. It is common for platonic soulmates to be physically affectionate, but that’s pretty well limited to cuddling and things like cheek kisses, never anything in a ual context.
So how does one know if someone is one of their soulmates, let alone which one? When you bond with your platonic soulmate you are filled with a warm feeling that offers comfort, and a slight magnetic like pull. When you bond with your romantic soulmate that warmth starts as a spark of heat and is slightly stronger, just as the magnetic pull that holds you two together is.
However, you can’t always recognize your soulmate right away, especially when it comes to your romantic soulmate. You both have to be open to the idea and have it as something lingering in the back of your mind for the bond to begin to form. That s also about as much as is known about soulmates, as it’s a fairly recent discovery, only having been known for close to 40 years. People expect the possibility for soulmates has always existed, but so few were open to the idea, and thus very few cases were brought up until these recent years.
Those who talk about their bond describe it as being both strong and subtle at the same time. As if you’re hyper aware of when they’re around and they feel like they’re an extension of your own body. Like, when you go to reach or something they’re already handing it to you, or when you go to get their attention they’re already turning around to face you. Like second nature
It eventually will follow all 12 members from EXO as some finish high school, and they all go through different years of college. First years at this college are required to live in the dorms on campus, but after that the students are free to move somewhere else. Most don’t go more than a few blocks away to a near by apartment complex that offers a lower rent charge for students.
When the first chapter starts, Sehun, Jongin and Tao are in their junior year of high school, Baekhyun, Chanyeol, Kyungsoo and Jongdae are on their senior year of high school, Yixing and Junmyeon are first years in college, and LuHan, Minseok and Yifan are second years in college.
Eventually I'll be able to release the playlist for this fic, Trinity didn't want anything spoilied so I'll link specific songs in the author notes at the beginning of each chapter.
Chapters for this fic will be up every Friday, starting the one at the end of this week :3 I hope to keep that up, since I'll be going back and forth posting chapters for this and another EXO fic, maybe with some one shots here and there. For updates on this, check out our tumblr or follow me on twitter for my daily monologue, mostly about these fics.
