Title: For Fashion’s Sake
Fandom: TVXQ
Pairing: Yunho/Changmin
Rating: R
Summary: Designer Shim is back on TV for All Stars Stitched Up. Changmin sees the competition as the chance for a bit of peace and quiet away from Yunho, but nothing ever works out as planned.
Notes: AU. For the prompt ‘reunion’ in [livejournal.com profile] diagon’s Twelve Months of HoMin challenge. Six related ficlets, and a sequel of sorts to Perfect Fit. Ridiculous fluffy crack to cheer myself up whilst recovering from glandular fever.


For Fashion’s Sake

i. The Invitation

The invitation arrives the old-fashioned way, by letter in an envelope emblazoned with the Stitched Up logo.

As is their habit, Yunho brings the post to Changmin in bed before he potters off, the dogs trailing after him, to prepare Changmin’s morning coffee.

Ever since he started working for Versace, Changmin has been very particular about his coffee. Even though he’d mostly worked from the home he and Yunho share in Seoul, he’d often had to travel to Milan to consult with colleagues, to source materials, to attend fashion weeks and generally to mingle and show his face as and when the house required.

His extended time in Italy had developed his taste for proper Italian coffee, served at the correct hour of the day—no cappuccino after breakfast time, please—and he’d spent an obscene amount of money on a proper Italian coffee machine and an even more ridiculous sum shipping it back to Korea and having it installed. After a few weeks of training and a couple of accidents and new plaster on the ceiling, Yunho got the hang of making coffee the exact way Changmin likes it.

Title: Perfect Fit
Fandom: TVXQ RPS
Pairing: Yunho/Changmin
Rating: NC17
Wordcount: 32,400 words
Summary: Changmin studied fashion at St Martin’s and interned at Chanel. Yunho is a Gwangju market trader who makes illegal knock-offs. They’re two of the contestants on top reality TV show Stitched Up. Tempers fray, things come apart at the seams, but somehow they Make It Work.
Notes: For [livejournal.com profile] haeym, who wanted a Project Runway-style AU. Hullun sanat.


Perfect Fit

Changmin steps out of the taxi and pauses for a moment on the pavement. He tosses back his hair and flicks at his scarf, then takes a firm grip on his suitcase and struts down the street. He hopes he looks sexy and confident. He hopes the cameraman tracking his every move has got his best side. He needs to look sure of himself without appearing arrogant. He needs to look like a winner.

The cameraman follows him for another few yards and then gives the thumbs up. “That’s great! Now get yourself inside. There’s a camera in the apartment for reaction shots when you meet your fellow contestants.”

“Thank you.” Changmin is glad the camera is turned off now, because he’s certain his smile is nervous rather than polite. He can’t show nervousness. Anxiety over whether or not he’ll be able to finish a design challenge in time for the runway show, yes; concern over the fate of other contestants who are having a meltdown, also permissible; but showing actual nervousness? No. Winners have nerves of steel and balls of iron, or maybe it’s the other way around.

Title: Running Man
Fandom: TVXQ
Pairing: Yunho/Changmin
Rating: R
Summary: Changmin likes running. Particularly when he’s being chased.
Notes: For the kink_bingo square ‘consent play’.


Running Man

Changmin runs.

He hadn’t even been aware of this... this thing, whatever it is—kink, need, massive fucking turn-on—until earlier this evening when they were filming the Running Man episode as part of their comeback. Dressed in high-collared satin opera cloaks and sporting Phantom of the Opera masks, they’d wandered around the theatre in search of the little gold balls that would eliminate their hosts from the game. Yunho loved it, because he’s secretly five years old, but Changmin found it stupid and embarrassing.

Or at least he had, right up until the moment when he’d almost been caught, when he hid in the box office and panted and shivered at how close he’d come to being unmasked, and adrenalin had surged through him, giving him the kind of endorphin high he used to get from being on stage.

Title: Passive Aggressive
Fandom: TVXQ
Pairing: Changmin/Yunho
Rating: PG
Summary: Changmin just keeps on pushing.
Notes: For the kink_bingo square ‘rough body play’.


Passive Aggressive

Changmin shoves Yunho, puts more force into it than necessary. The choreography calls for it, but there are ways to fake the strength of the push, ways that Changmin ignores. He slams the flat of his hand hard against Yunho’s chest and forces him to give ground.

Sometimes he can make Yunho stumble, and he knows it’s real and not faked for the performance. Those are the times Changmin feels most alive, when he hits Yunho right over the breastbone and feels heat and the slick of sweat, feels Yunho fall back.

Title: Eau Rouge at 200mph
Fandom: F1
Pairing: Mika Hakkinen/Michael Schumacher
Rating: R
Summary: Love. Victory. Fame. None of these things really matter.
Notes: Written for the Kimi bingo card as part of the [livejournal.com profile] f1slash Summer Slash challenge. Top line bingo using the prompts: tattoos/tattooing, crimson, drugs/aphrodisiacs, Spa, and rough body play. Set across the 2000 season. I think Michael’s henna tattoo made an appearance in 2001, but neither [livejournal.com profile] diagon nor I could remember exactly and Google was no help at all, so excuse the anachronism. Also, a very literal rendering of ‘drugs’, but if it’s good enough for Bryan Ferry...


Eau Rouge at 200mph

They fuck because they have no reason not to. It’s expected of them, and they have a history of it, a history that goes back two years, and everyone knows it. One must always give the audience what it wants, even if the performance is behind closed doors, even if the only ones who know for sure are the two participants themselves, because then they become an audience for one another, and that pushes them further, and further, because sex, like racing, is a competition.

They measure their love in terms of breakages, physical and mental.

Driving With The Brakes On

Chapter 16

It snows again in the early morning. Yunho wakes on his own couch to a world shrunk tight on itself, the air as brittle as his mood. For the first time in his life he’s glad of a hangover. The pain is a hideous, swinging sway of stabbing knives and spinning nausea. He can’t bear the light, not even a little, and so he finds a pair of sunglasses and puts them on.

The thought of food makes him feel sick. He manages half a cup of strong black coffee before it comes back up, and he hangs over the kitchen sink with the cold tap open all the way as he retches. The purging makes him feel slightly better, and he cleans up and then sits on the floor staring into space for a while as his stomach lurches and flips and eventually settles, and the hangover flatlines into something more manageable.

Chapter 15

To his credit, the first thing that Donghae says when Yunho turns up at his door is not “I told you so,” but “Let’s get drunk.”

It takes almost two hours before Yunho can talk about it. At the second place they go to, Donghae tries to get him to eat by ordering a plate of something-or-other that makes Yunho want to heave just looking at it. He shoves it away. “Not hungry.”

“Fine. Don’t come crying to me tomorrow when you have the mother of all hangovers.” Donghae eats the food instead. “Pacing myself, bro. You need to learn how to do that.”

Even though Yunho’s sure that Donghae wasn’t being metaphorical, the comment slices at him. Guilt and anger and self-pity overwhelm him. “I tried, bro, I really tried. I did everything for him. He wanted space and I gave him that, too. I’d give him the fucking moon if I could. I just want him. Want to protect him.” Yunho bangs his fist on the table then turns his hand and stares at his fingers. “He was hurt.”

Chapter 14

Next morning, Yunho wakes on the couch beneath a blanket with a crick in his neck and an ache that has nothing to do with how badly he’s slept. The morning is dull and grey, bending cold light from the walls of the living room. Half of the cushions are on the floor. He’s fully dressed in what he was wearing last night before everything turned to shit. He’s even wearing his shoes, for fuck’s sake. Changmin’s going to scold him for that.

Or not, because Changmin hadn’t said more than two words to him when they got back last night. He’d just gone into his room, emerged with a blanket and a pillow and put both on the couch, then he’d returned to his room, closed the door, and locked it from the inside.

Chapter 13

By the time they go out for dinner, snow clouds have gathered, heavy-bellied and thick, painted with wide brushstrokes of grey. Changmin looks up at the sky and flashes a grin at Yunho. “Maybe we’ll get snowed in tonight.”

“Maybe it’ll snow all weekend long, and Kyuhyun and Minho can’t get back and it’ll just be us for the whole of next week,” Yunho says. “I hope you can cook, because you already know I can’t.”

“I can cook, actually.” Changmin adjusts his scarf, which is in a shade that he describes as ‘raspberry’ and which Yunho thinks is more like purpley-pinky-grey-ish. “I’m a pretty good cook. Not haute cuisine or anything but I’m good with the basics. My parents’ housekeeper taught me. Maybe I’ll make something for you tomorrow.”

“Not if it involves you putting on any clothes,” Yunho says. “The naked chef. Wasn’t that a TV show?”

“Jamie Oliver.” Changmin smiles. “Except he wasn’t naked.”

Chapter 12

The first snow falls on Monday night. Just a light dusting, nothing that will last, but it provokes the usual round of commentary on global warming and predictions of ice ages. Yunho flicks past these moribund reports in the newspaper and ends up looking through the classifieds. He spends some time studying the adverts for apartments for sale.

It doesn’t mean anything. It’s just an idle thought. He’s absolutely not making plans. If he’s thinking about buying a place, it’s for him and it’s because he’s reached that stage in life where the flat at the back of the garage isn’t enough anymore.

He’s just looking. It’s not a crime to daydream.

Chapter 11

Yunho spends Sunday afternoon locked up in the garage with industrial rock blasting out of the CD player and a Nissan Pathfinder hoisted up on the jacks waiting for new brake pads. Despite the lure of honest work, Yunho sits behind the desk with the logbook open and Thursday’s newspaper folded to the puzzles section. He twirls a black biro between his fingers as he tries to solve the sudoku. Whoever invented this thing must be a freak, because Yunho can’t work it out and this is supposed to be an easy one. He starts colouring in the squares instead to make a face, and then fills the gaps with random numbers when the face looks too sad.

Chapter 10

They wake early on Saturday morning. Yunho feels a bit bad when Changmin surfaces from sleep looking rumpled but eager, obviously thinking they’re going to spend the next few hours working up an appetite. Changmin’s face when Yunho announces that they’re going hiking has the kind of look that causes small animals to keel over and expire on the spot. But Yunho is made of sterner stuff, and he coaxes Changmin out of bed with blatant lies about the breakfast he’ll make when they get back. By the time Changmin is dressed, Yunho is a little frightened about the amount of food he’s promised to produce and also the degree of skill required in creating such a Michelin-starred repast.

Changmin gets into the BMW, fretting about whether his shoes are appropriate footwear for hiking. “I’ve seen women walk up in high heels,” Yunho tells him, and Changmin falls silent for a while until they’re out of the city and heading for the sprawling mass of Mudeungsan.

“We’re only walking up to that bit, right?” Changmin points at a communications tower on one of the lowest of the bulging foothills.

Chapter 9

Yunho doesn’t get the chance to see Changmin again for a while. They’re both too busy, Yunho with a trip to Busan and Changmin hard at work on his dissertation. They still talk every day. Yunho finally buys a new phone, an upgraded version of the one that Changmin has, all flash and expensive with loads of apps that do useless things that Yunho’s not interested in. He doesn’t really like it, but the advantage the new phone has over his old one is that it enables video calls, and now he can see Changmin while they talk.

It also means that phone sex is suddenly a lot easier. Or at least it is once he coaxes Changmin past an attack of shy embarrassment. Wanking is always much better with visuals, and his favourite visual is Changmin sprawled on the bed, hair in his face and his eyes dazed with need and his lips parted, chest heaving and skin sheened with sweat as he works a dildo in and out of his greedy hole while Yunho tells him exactly how much to take and how fast to do it.

Chapter 8

Two weeks isn’t that long. The time flies by, helped by the fact that they’re flat out at work. As much as he enjoys getting his hands dirty and making an engine sing again, Yunho looks forward to the evenings, when he locks up the garage and sits at the desk with the smell of oil and metal and paint around him, or when he goes out back and sprawls on the couch amidst the clutter of his life, and finally he can hear Changmin’s voice.

They’re getting closer every night. The distance seems to help rather than hinder. Changmin is more talkative and sounds more confident with each conversation. He flirts more, too, and he’s bold over the phone in the same way that he’s shy in person. Yunho thinks this is the thing he loves most about Changmin.

“It’s like I have two boyfriends wrapped up in one hot package,” he says.

Changmin goes quiet at that. “Which one do you prefer?”

Chapter 7

On Thursday, Changmin takes the blue Hyundai Accent for a test drive. Yunho sits beside him and points out its faults, the worst one being that the rattling sound as they corner is a sign that the bearings are going.

“What do you think?” Yunho asks when they arrive back at the owner’s house.

Changmin stares through the windscreen, his lips pressed together. He thinks for a long time, and then he turns to Yunho and smiles. “I like the colour.”

Chapter 6

Changmin refuses to say which museum they’re going to visit. He keeps on smiling and says it’s a surprise. Yunho wonders if there’s a sex museum in Seoul. That would be fun. They take the metro to Hyehwa and walk a short distance, and then Changmin points across the street and says, “There.”

Yunho stares at the building. “The Straw and Plants Handicraft Museum.” He fails to adjust his expression and looks at Changmin with something akin to horror. “Please tell me you’re joking.”

Changmin’s mouth turns down at the corners and his eyes go all wide and sad. “I love straw handicrafts. Didn’t you learn how to weave shoes from grass when you were at school? I was fastest in my year at weaving. I won an award for it.”
