"Learn to share," says Heechul, tutting at him.

hanchul // 400 words // PG
Heechul's fingertips are soft against the skin of his cheeks, and then he's slipping the mask over Hankyung's nose and over his mouth, and he's laughing, so Hankyung laughs back.

[dystopia future!AU] Heechul has just had the worst day ever, in the world. Honestly, he doesn't think that it could possibly get worse than this. That, however, is something that he'll come to regret articulating when he ends up a long way from home, in a world where life is a fight for survival.

[mutant!AU] At the Soo Man Academy for Gifted Individuals, those with mutant powers are taught how to control their gifts. Hankyung has come to learn to control something he doesn't consider a gift, but rather a curse, and he wants nothing else from the school, certainly not friendship, but then, his life has never gone how he wanted it.

★★★ High Technology by black_goose

[cyberpunk!AU] Summary: The micro-chips let the government keep tabs on your every move; the video cameras let the government know when they need to start paying attention. Get rid of the chip in the back of your brain and you can slip under the radar, and do whatever the hell you like. It's not like they're the bad guys, but it's not like they're the good guys, either.
