★ a man who wasn't there by losingplaces
jongkey // 3k // R
It's always a little uncomfortable walking through those doors, and down that white and pale green hall to the front desk. Jinki thinks he'll never get used to it, no matter how many times he does it, or has done it throughout the last year.
desolate by goyangi
jongkey, ontae // 2k // R

Of kisses, bets & take-outs by x_saru_x
jongkey // 1.4k // PG
They've always shared a few glances more than necessary, always let fingers linger a second more than necessary, but that doesn't stop Kibum from being mildly surprised when Jonghyun's lips lock with his for the briefest of moments.
Of motherhood, sighs and dysfunctional families by x_saru_x
jongkey // 858 words // PG
"Being a working mother is a hard task," the actress admits to the interviewer, and Kibum emits a long-drawn sigh as he nods at the television. Story of his life.

jongkey // 2.8k // PG-15
[AU] jonghyun and kibum's first encounter (or date, as jonghyun likes to put it) is at jonghyun's best friend jinki's house, in the middle of spit-swapping and fist-pumping, but neither of them can really complain.

★ when life happens by losingplaces
jongkey // 5k // PG-13
The chance of anyone looking at them twice — let alone recognizing them — was small. A year had passed since the scandal, and they'd kept to themselves for the most part.

★★ Making an Exception by mikssi
jongkey, side!2min // 24k // NC-17
[AU] Filthy. Disgusting. Unnatural. Wrong. Jonghyun had always been taught that homosexuality was nothing less than revolting. He never questioned the fact, though he never saw what exactly was so bad about it... But after he meets the subtly-rebellious and always-honest boy who prefers to be called "Key", he finds himself wondering... If it was wrong, then why did it always make him so happy? And if it was so unnatural, then why can't he make it stop?

onho, jongkey // 14k // PG
[AU] Onew really doesn't understand what Choi Minho, football captain, loved by the student body as a whole, is doing talking to him, but he'd quite like him to stop. Being the butt of someone's joke was never the point of Onew&'s high school career.

so close, no matter how far; couldn't be much more from the heart.
NOTE: this fic used to be on lj, but unfortunately the author left fandom and deleted his lj and all the fics on there. all his fics all floating around somewhere out there in a zip he uploaded as a parting gift, but this one i had actually saved as a pdf myself earlier, because i couldn't stand to see the fic without the amazing photographs he included in his post. if i can dig up the zip of all his fics, i'll link to that too, because they're all worth reading, but this will have to do for now.
