It was the end of an era for them. Another chapter had finished, onto the next one.


Hello! I'm finally posting this after MONTHS. i thought it would stay in my drafts forever but I guess not. This started as a supposedly twitter au until I just decided to turn it into a proper one shot. This was so emotionally exhausting to write.

Thank you so much to Azul who beta-ed this story. I'm still very much amazed by their effort to make this fic even better than I thought!

The title was from Moving On by Kodaline . It is also the same song that urged me to write (and finish) this fic. Give it a listen if you want!

I'm also sharing my angsty playlist here.

Chapter 1: Ouch. This was so painful to read, that "my wife and I" hit so hard :') this was honestly so well written and made and I love it but my heart is still sad, it's so bittersweet and a great ending with "as long as Hyukjae's happy, Donghae's happy" this was just too good T^T
