Chapter One





  The foyer was grand, sleek, and shiny. It was regal, pure white, with an elegance that only the rich can acquire. The magnificent chandelier glittered as the lights reflected on the glass and the smell of cinnamon potpourri filled the air.

   ByulHee's first thought was that this was too surreal. This was to good to be true. She had never seen a place so grand and was in awe of it. She hoped she wouldn't break anything. ByulHee was pretty sure that even the plants in this castle cost more than her life. 

    MiKyung stared at the six girls standing next to her. They were all from the Westside, but she had never seen any of these girls before. Even so, she felt a connection with them. An understanding. They too were poor and so their similar backgrounds tie them together. 'Us Westsider's have to stick together in the land of the East.' she thought and nodded her head unconsciously, satisfied with her thought process. 

     MinHi couldn't help but be annoyed. This was the last place she'd rather be. And the fake politeness of the "Butler" in the house was making her nauseous. She hated bull more than anything. In fact, she had half a mind to scuff the floor up with her combat boots just to piss the guy off. It was tempting she had to admit.

     EunSeo and SooRyun were focused on one thing. The boys. There were seven of them, and all of them had to have been the most handsome boys they had ever seen. Each boy had an air of elegance about them, their clothes were very expensive looking, and even their hair seemed perfect.

      HaeRa wasn't the smartest girl, in fact, she was legally learning disabled, but that didn't mean she was completely dumb. She was not considered a mentally handicap person because she could walk and talk just fine and had no debilitating illness from a chromosome mutation. No she just simply had a slower brain than most people. But even the dummy HaeRa could tell these boys were not thrilled about the being in this freaking palace.

       "Can you just tell us where our rooms are? I do not care for meaningless introductions and I'm very exhausted. So, Mr. Butler, kindly take your fake kindness, shove it up your , and get me to my room." MinHi adjusted the backpack she had on her back and fixed her studded jacket. She definitely looked like a delinquent, and that's just how she liked it. Less people would bother her or piss her off.

       "Yes, Miss Park right this way." SooRyun was the first one to follow after MinHi with her head turned towards the floor and her journal clutched tightly to her chest. It was a written journal of all her choreography's that she'd come up with in her head. To anyone else it would just look like a bunch of dance words, but to her, they were movements, art forms, and the only way she could dance without actually dancing.

         The staircase was a grand spiraling one made of pure white marble and it seemed to drag on forever. EunSeo was dying from dragging her 3 pink bags (just her carryon's from the flight). What could she say? A fashion forward girl had to be prepared right? When they had finally made it up to the, what it seemed to be specially made hallway, both sides were aligned with three and four doors respectively.

         "This hall was designed to be especially catered to your individualities. Each room has your nameplate on it, and is designed according to likes and dislikes." The butler said with a less forced smile this time. MinHi was satisfied at the slight change on went ahead into her room, completely ignoring the butler and the others.

          "Wahhh Unnie is really tough!" ByulHee said and exchanged a look with MiKyung who simply shrugged her shoulders. MiKyung's first impression of MinHi wasn't exactly the best, but being a fellow Westsider she could learn to get a long with her. She must of had a tough life to be that bitter and closed off to the world.

             HaeRa found her nameplate and walked into the room, she was completely awed by what she saw. This room was bigger than her whole house combined. It even had its own bathroom and a canopy bed! Who knew being so rich could actually have some type of perks. Glancing around the room, she noticed first and foremost that it was green. Green was her favorite color and coupled with all the yellow accents and pink curtains it made her room just how she always imagined it! The best part? The walls were lined with comic books on comic books! Her room even had the whole series of her all time favorite manga, Naruto and Fruit Baskets.  


            "Hyungs! Did you see those girls? They're so...common." Rap Monster said as he twirled a basketball on his finger while lounging on one of the black bucket chairs in BTS' own little domain. He said common as if it was the plague. No one besides BTS has ever been in here, not even Jimin's play toys. They decided that they only wanted to bring someone precious to them here, not someone to roll in the sheets with. It would be a girl they would show to their parents and fight as hard as they could for approval. 

             "That one girl in the studded jacket scared me. She's not a girl at all, she's a maniac." Jimin said, shuddering at the lack of femininity. Jimin liked cute and girly girls. Not someone who had a brain and could also knock him on his . Plus she had the nerve to diss Butler Jung and he's been with the family since before Jimin was born.

             "Well we'll see how she reacts to Umma when they meet her tomorrow. Even the devil himself would cower in front of that woman." V said, shuddering at the thought of suffering Mrs. Kim's wrath.

             Yes, they would definitely see what happens tomorrow. It should be interesting to say the least.





AUTHOR'S NOTE :  And so it begins!!! I wonder what fun things await all our character, and thank you to those who made scene requests! They helped a ton. Let me know if I've kept them in character for the most part or if there's something you think should be changed. Also each chapter will most likely focus on one couple at a time if its pertaining to the spot in the story, meaning, just because say ByulHee had more air time this chapter, doesn't mean she'll have the same amount in the next. I like to try and keep things fair, which is why I pruposely left out HaeRa for a majority of the chapter! Let me know how the first chapter went! The chapters will vary in length, but they should not go over 3k.

BTS: Crossing Boundaries: Chapter 13 HAS BEEN UPLOADED! :)

Chapter 27: lmao I feel ty for being the one to say I miss this and then be delayed this long in concerns to commenting on the updated chapter. ;;
BUT- yes, even if I end up taking an indefinite hiatus, this would for sure be one of the stories that I would periodically check back in on.

I love how you open it with a statement about how hard the girls have been working with their academics- and then lead immediately into cutie-pie Byulhee literally folding a paper airplane and sending it flying to the proverbial sleeping dragon Minhi. LOL. Regardless though, seeing the camaraderie that's been built between all the girls is heartwarming to be sure!
But oh man, Byulhee does seem the perfect target considering her innocence in comparison to the rest of the girls- probably the only other viable option would have been Hannah, considering her plotline was literally called the "innocent touch".
[[Cause seriously, Eunseo (though surprised) would probably be the one to traumatize the flasher by just scornfully (and loudly) laughing at his *ahem* assets, Minhi would probably sooner beat the guy up for even trying, and the other girls- even if surprised, would probably snap out of it to either call the cops or one of the boys instead of freezing up like poor little Byul. ]]

It's hilarious how Jungkook fully acknowledges that he's been attempting to delude himself when it comes to a certain little klutz- & even more hilarious how he throws Jin under the bus in comparison. LMAO.

Byulhee is so cute LOL. Literally just pouting up at Kookie after he flicks her forehead. I'm glad to see some progression with our resident maknae couple here- and as for your inspiration for this scene, I just remembered a scene from the movie "Secretly Greatly". Where the main guy is trying to disguise himself using only random things- but the townspeople see him in literally a bra and leopard print granny shorts and accuse him of being a flasher/kidnapper. LOL.
Man, I kind of low-key follow your other stories too, but after seeing BTS's new comeback MV, it reminded me of this story that got me into your writing in the first place. I miss this one sometimes~ </3
I was wondering what was up since I hadn't seen an update for this & To Catch a Demon was in early January.

Haera and ChANGJO. YES. I SHIP IT. I love how both Jin and Changjo went out of their way to do something for her, though it shows that Changjo approached this a bit more intelligently in tutoring and reassuring her of her capabilities instead of just pretty much handing her a slightly more personalized textbook. (You still did good Jin, but Changjo did better LMAO-)
I'm waiting & looking forward for Jin and her relationship to blossom tbh

Hannah is so cute though. Her logic of maybe just liking every cute boy b/c of her age had me laughing. But whoa Jimin. You literally got no jams right now concerning the situation handling of the game and Niel. Being aggressive to a boy she's expressing friendliness to is not very likely to get you in her good graces. xD

Yoongi's persistence is slowly wearing Minhi down it looks like. It's pretty hilarious how he seems to always show up the moment she decides that she wants to break some rules. His stickler for the rules ways is certainly remaining at odds with Minhi but he's got the right idea. Toss away those gross cigs, they aren't healthy or make you look cool contrary to popular belief.

NAMJOON PLS. Jfc his mother hen antics towards Mikyung are cavity inducing. ; u ;
This ship sails itself. I don't even think more needs to be said with these two. Seriously Namjoon literally hand feeding her out behind/under a big tree from a personal bento- this is seriously some Nicholas Sparks content right here.
Come on you two you make each other's kokoros go doki doki just become a couple already-- !!

more coming in part two cause screw AFF's character limits. >C
tbh i'm shipping em more at this point
i just have a huge thing for nice guys LMAOO

wowowowow hannah
girl, you should make up your mind
tho i'd probs blush at every good looking guy too XD
seriously i can't see jimin being aggressive tho

yooo suga you did good
throw that pack of cigs away!!!
its hilarious tho LMAO
how creepy suga sounds rn xD

ahhhhhhhhhhh rapmon and mikyung
i ship this so so so much
esp caring rapmon
LMAO why so assertive tho dang
even tho it was for the best of mikyung

this si so fricking cute
i love it
that quiet jhope is slowly going away
and he's becoming more like the him that i can actually imagine haha

woohoooooo the comments finally here and done haha
really sorryy for the late comment
and that you feel so frustrated with the lack of feedback

you gave this story a lot of effort and wrote way more than most applyfic authors can ever
so major props to you!
i'll try to comment as soon as you upload a chapter the next time :)

and if you really really feel that frustrated by the chosen applicants not commenting for so long
you can give them a warning, saying you'll swap out charas or something idk
Chapter 25: ok so i actually read the chapter like a few days ago
but i didn't know hot to comment
cause everything was so sad
and just...
i knew west side was bad
i didn't think it was going to be that bad

i feel so bad for mikyung
how she's giving up on treatment cause she thinks she's being a burden
i'd feel the same as her but rapmon has a point when he says no parent feels their child is a burden
if only that was the cold hard truth tho
there was a man who has been on life support his whole life
and he heard his mom telling him to just go die because she was tired of taking care of him..
real life story. smfh
but he made it out alive and it living like a normal person now tho

(pretty sure he's gunna)
just curious on how he's going to do that?
rapmon is actually such a good natured guy
despite his initial attitude towards the west siders

besides the lego thing of course
ahh i love it so much

i love this story so much
i love the progress so far
and just, ugh
lemme love you for being so awesome <3
Chapter 25: That feeling of knowing that you can't afford something but is stuck there due to circumstances is something I'm familiar with.
Mikyung's mentality, while I can see where she's coming from, is heartbreaking. Sure, having people know and pitying her would probably not be something she would be ecstatic over, but it's. something kind of inevitable now? Like when they all do eventually find out it's going to happen. I almost think it'd be more of a blessing to allow the ones around you time to steel themselves for what's to come, though to be fair the groups are all still growing close to each other so I guess it can't be helped for now. It's ultimately up to her in the end.

Namjoon though. Oh boy, I was amused when he jumped at the opportunity to be the one visitor for her when the doctor came out to report on her condition to the collective group. His ensuing conversation with Mikyung was enlightening as well. It really is like they come from two completely separate worlds. Her trying to avoid being a burden- both emotional and financial, and him being incredulous over how seemingly willing she is to just not even fight for her right/chance to live.

and there it is though. The one thing she wants most before she dies. I would cite the movie "a walk to remember" in reference to her believing that there is no chance for someone with.... a permanent expiration date to have someone be willing to love and marry them. That last line from Namjoon's perspective sounds very promising- though saddening. Since, well- I think we all know how Mikyung's story is ultimately going to end. ; ;

Even if it took something like this, it is good to see the groups coming together now. And on an off note, I love how this mutual understanding/relationship with SeoHope was spawned from a Lego set. LOL.
This was a really fast update! Thank you for spoiling us with it, and I'll be eagerly waiting to see how more of Mikyung, Haera, and Hannah's respective arcs unfold. c:
Chapter 24: I had just glanced at/ reread this about a week ago, so it's a great surprise to see you've updated it as well!
I have faith in your plans for this story, & think your decision to break the story into individual character driven arcs is a smart choice rather than attempting to mash everyones' shining moments and developments together at once.

I will admit from a purely kpop music bias standpoint I was conflicted on the two performances because I lOVE Gain's Paradise Lost (Which was a great choice for classically trained Sooryun btw) but at the same time, Crazy was my JAM for months. Regardless of Sooryun not winning, I think this was a defining moment for her, & I'm sitting here grinning on her behalf because she's finally retaken the stage after her past injury.
V's reaction though like- PLEASE. Falling out of his chair and your little "...all the blood rushed to his head (if you know what I mean)"
I literally snorted while I was eating my dinner and reading this.

Suji is still so salty after the results are announced omfg. Like girl obtain some chill please.
All this hype is going to be probably following the new girls around now, so Suji and posse better start getting used to it.
Hannah and Byulhee though- girls get it! Minhi be rubbing off on the young ones. LOL.

Oh gosh I've seen the hints leading up to this point with her weakening and constantly pushing herself for the competition, but now that she's actually collapsed in front of the other girls, I guess it's time the rest of the girls find out... and why do I feel like the boys are going to be getting home shortly to witness this all as well? OTL;; I'm super excited to see how Mikyung's arc is going to unfold tbh and am anticipating getting to see more of her interactions with Namjoon.

Thanks for the update, and like I said earlier, I have faith in your plans for this story!
props too for regularly updating this and To Catch a Demon too. Like dang man.
Chapter 24: I trust you and your plans for all of the girls tbh
the story has been awesome so far
and mad props to you for being able to update so many chapters
