The River

Please Subscribe to read further chapters


Five undergraduates simply wanted to live their life focusing on themselves - academics, friendships, love, happiness - but it all went downhill when mysterious creatures came crawling out of a river like a story out of a book, demolishing the city. However, when these five boys, along with many others, obtained the opportunity to put an end to the violent chaos, they put themselves and their newly gained powers to the test. It was up to them to save their city and the people they cared about, even those they despised and felt threatened by.




Hey, it's Skyful_Poof back with another story!

When I tell you this is a story I have been anticipating to work on for the past 6 months, I mean it. I am just truly excited for this piece of work, and there are lots of new topics and themes and scenes that I wish to write, so please do look forward to that!

Anyways, this is a story focusing on TXT, but there are many other groups involved too. As I've briefly mentioned, there are certain aspects of violence, implied triggering topics and such. Please go through all the tags before beginning to read! If anything seems uncomfortable, do read something that suits your needs.

The cover for this story has been created by me! It was just a quick, simple edit, but I hope it gives off the vibe that I want it to! Anyways, if any cover was made by another creator, I will surely credit them.

Other than that, I hope you enjoy reading this as much as I enjoy writing it! Also, I will be writing as I update (and vice versa), so do bear with me!

Chapter 42: I love the story overall and I'm wondering if you planned a second season to this story? If you do, I will definitely check them out later!! Oh, and have a happy new year ahead ^^
Chapter 42: I'm glad that things were able to return to being mostly normal, and also loved the halfway confession of Yeonjun's, saying that he would go out with Soobin and do all of these things that would eventually make them fall further. I'm also glad that you didn't throw them straight into a relationship after the trauma they've been through and the changes to everything. This was nicely done.
Chapter 41: I'm glad they were able to defeat the Slime, but at what cost now? So many people have been effected and lives changed. It's also sad to see how things turned out with Yeonjun and his parents. I hope he'll be able to recover from this.

Chapter 21: ahhhhh im just over halfway and im really exited to see how this ends! i hope that the ending is happy~
Chapter 1: I feel bad for Yeonjun. He has such egoistic and greedy parents. They don't care about his feelings, they care about money, power and conections. I thought maybe his mother was different but she never corrected nor objected to her husband's words and desires about Yeonjun's future.
It is so desconsiderate and shameful of them to ask for Soobin's help, they are putting a heavy bag over his shoulders and it was hard for him to deny their request because they are his friend's parents, it is not easy.
He could told them that he would do It, so both of them would stop pestering and bothering him. He could earn their trust like that but not doing nothing they have asked of him at all. Sadly, it seems that he will carry on with that plan.
I feel pity for Soobin. He likes Yeonjun and is keeping his feelings hidden deeply inside !
The plot seems really interesting and I'm already looking forward to this! I love TXT and yeonbin haha.
Chapter 37: I'm glad Soobin is okay, and obviously Yeonjun does have feelings for him. He just won't let them out yet. I hope they can recover from his harsh words, and also make sure the people responsible for this pay.
Chapter 36: Oh My goodness. I was so afraid that Soobin was gone, but I'm glad he's not. Now I hope yuey can end this and go back to a normal life sometime soon.
Chapter 35: I loved Soobin's confession, and hope that Yeonjun will be able to get the true feelings that he was trying to convey. Now I also hope that Soobin will be able to get out somehow and not die in there, after all they've been through.
Chapter 28: Even with all they have lost, Taehyun does have a point with wanting to fight back. Maybe their powers are exactly what's needed right now to fight these monsters off. It's worth a shot. I love how caring Taehyun is, too.
