Description


When mildly reclusive Irene starts hanging out and hooking up with her new neighbour, Seulgi, their attraction is instant, though neither of them expect their relationship to progress into anything more, especially since they both continue to pursue other people. What happens when two extremely chill people strike up a friendship and then some? Practically nothing. An anti-romance and anti-angst ode to all our comrades-in-boredom.

 

Foreword


This is a little writing experiment to see if I can write a slow burn without any angst. 
 

Wendy doesn't appear for a while, and Rosie appears even later in the story. I don't think I've ever read a Seulrosé pairing in a story, but I thought it might be interesting. Feel free to point me in the direction of any Seulrosé stories that exist, I would love to check them out. Endgame is Seulrene (it will be pretty obvious anyway), and please don't expect much in the way of plot, just lots of chillin', lots of conversation, and a reasonable amount of . 

I hope you all get a kick out of this, and I love getting feedback (even if it's to yell at me in frustration).

Chapter 14: You know that 3x3 tiles where one categorizes good, neutral, evil x lawful, neutral, chaotic, this fic is the top tier example of chaotic good. Thank you author!

Chapter 14: the way everyone can see that they're in love with each other except for them and their partners omg they're such an entertaining dumpster fire 😭 i know you said no angst but the lowkey yearning in this that they keep trying to downplay is so good 🙈 i usually dislike a miscommunication trope that should be easy to resolve if they just talked but the way it's written here is actually refreshing and fun!

Chapter 14: Seulgi saying, JooHyun feels like home aww. Hope they realize that they live each other. Maybe Rosie and Wendy.

Chapter 14: Seems Joohyun was jealous of Wendy fawning over Rosé and not because Seulgi is dating Rosé . Joohyun just gives me the protective best friend vibes here. Which is cool, actually. Dunno how it happened, but I actually like the couples we have now to just stay together. I mean, it was serious enough for Seulgi that she accepted and respected Rosé's terms. Can't just have things unravel between them when what they have now sparked such a major shift. Or to put it simply: if that person made me consider changing my ways (not that they're fundamentally good or bad, but just that changing in itself is already significant) I think she's worth staying with.

Chapter 13: Most of the times I just have to re-read (how the hell is peanut hamburger connected to rejection????) I realized I am very simple minded I have to reach your level of intelligence to understand, you know those kinds of stuffs are like physics to me, Albert Einstein level, right you are Einstein author, I don't know if I understand nevertheless I am clapping my hands here, this makes me high and I don't even know what it feels to be high. I don't know anymore, I don't....

Chapter 13: Glazed doughnuts are the only doughnuts that matter. Everything else is a gastronomical aberration and abomination. Hmmm. So Rosie wants to take things slow, huh? Wonder if Seulgi can take that.
