Strung Apart by Fate


Soobin is your ordinary college student, going through school, and simply just trying to live his life. Beomgyu is a seemingly random stranger that feels oddly familiar to Soobin, but he can't figure out why for the life of him. And Taehyun? He was Soobin's best friend, but even he had his own secrets that Soobin couldn't figure out.


HUGE DISCLAIMER: This is my first soulmateau so please keep that in mind while reading the first few chapters. This is new territory for me therefore it will seem very awkward. Thank you!


Oh hai~! Author-nim here with another story :D

This isn't a wolfau! I know, how shocking right xD

I decided to try my hand at a soulmateau inspired by a subplot for a fic I had read on Tumblr.

What kind of soulmates are Beomgyu and Soobin? I don't know how to call it but it's one where every single time they meet one person always dies. Soobin is the person who dies in this case. The only way to break the curse is to have a third person in the mix. But even that brings its own set of challenges.

Beomgyu isn't immortal per say, as he can die but he is stuck in his early 20's until this curse breaks.

Taehyun was in the same boat, but due to already breaking the curse he is fine. Soobin had been the one to break it, and is happy with his soulmate who had become one of Soobin's closest friends after Taehyun.

Well now that that's out of the way. Let's get onto the characters~!



Soobin: A full time college student who works part time at a cafe to help pay for school. He is best friends with Taehyun who he had met in high school, and was the one who brought Taehyun and his soulmate together. Soobin is skeptical of the concept of soulmates, but is still happy for his best friend. He has a heart condition that has been with him since birth, but refuses to let that stop him from achieving his dreams. He is a biology major, with a minor in computer science.

Taehyun: A full time college student who also works part time at the cafe that Soobin works at. He is Soobin's best friend, having been friends since high school despite the two year that was seemingly between them. In reality he had been alive for a lot longer than he was supposed to be, having been stuck as a teenager when he first found his soulmate. He has since broke the curse and is aging again and is in a happy relationship with his soulmate, Heeseung. He is majoring in computer science, with a minor in education.

Beomgyu: A college student who transferred from one of the other universities when he caught wind of his soulmate being at that particular school. He had been looking for Soobin for years at that point, as the last time they had met each other before Soobin's death was back in the 80's. He had gone through 4 lifetimes by that point it seemed, as the first time he met Soobin was by complete accident, and he had sought out Soobin ever since. He and Taehyun know of each other, as it was easy to spot someone in their predicament by the way they carried themselves. He is majoring in computer science, with a minor in literature.

Heeseung: A college student who also works at the cafe that Soobin and Taehyun work at. He was skeptical at the concept of soulmates at first, but after getting saved by Soobin from a car crash when he met Taehyun seemingly for the first time he decided to give Taehyun a chance. He had since then been in a happy relationship with Taehyun, and is close friends with Soobin. He is majoring in archeology, with a minor in science.
