The Star Who Stayed


Just this once, Jonghyun lives. He is found in the nick of time by a time traveler who has no idea how she got there, how she found him, and she doesn't speak a of Korean. 

A story that references Orpheus and Eurydice and surmounts the distance between the land of the living and the underworld.


Pure wish fulfillment. What I wish I could do if I had the magic and power to save him. In this imagined world I created, Jonghyun lives. I hope other despairing fans can take some solace in it.

Chapter 1: That made me cry. We can only hope that he feels at peace. I hope he has the opportunity to live another life, one free of the hardships he experienced in this one. Thank you for writing this it brings me a form of hope.
