Fanfiction Friday: Lvely Vmin

I haven’t done a Fanfiction Friday in a long time, but while I was in my reading slump, I was reading fanfiction and threadfics through Twitter almost daily. I was so inspired by some of these authors that I created a second Twitter in case I ever wrote threadfics of my own. The one author that kept me coming back was lvelyvmin or Em. She writes fanfiction mostly about Taehyung and Jimin of BTS, but she sometimes writes stories about the other members of BTS.

I love hybrid fics, but most fanfiction in this genre are just for wolf hybrids so that the stories can focus on heats and ruts. Em isn’t like this. She writes hybrid stories for different animals, and none of them really focus on the sexual sides of those animals, but instead focus on the sweet and unique characteristics of each species.

Along with writing threadfics on Twitter, she writes beautiful full-length Archive Of Our Own stories. She also makes AMAZING moodboards for almost all of her fics, big or small, and you can view them all in the master threads linked below. Here are my top 4 favorite fics of hers. If you want to view a full list of all her fics on Archive of Our Own, threadfics on Twitter, and story ideas, click here.

The bear hybrid universe that Lvelyvmin has created is beautiful. Tae is a bear hybrid, and he struggles to date as many people view him as “boring” during his hybernation. Jimin loves him for who he is, and is willing to learn everything about bear hybrids to support his boyfriend.

This master thread includes short stories about Vmin’s early relationship, and stories of them more established down the line. My favorite stories in this universe are about Vmin adopting other bear hybrid children. No one wants bear hybrid children in this world as they are considered to be burdens because of their hybernation. Vmin want to help as many children as they can fit in their family, as Taehyung knows what they need and how to take care of them.

Lvelyvmin’s panther hybrid universe is just as good as the bear universe. Jimin is the hybrid this time, and he is persecuted by society because he is a predator. The society views predators as being dangerous, so no one wants to be with them. Tae is a sweet human who loves Jimin for the sweet man he is. Jimin would never hurt anyone, and Tae is determined to prove that to people. He also has a son, who Jimin immediately falls in love with. They face prejudice from society as everyone thinks that Jimin shouldn’t be trusted around children. Whenever Jimin stars to feel down, Tae always reminds him of what a good father he is. The little mini stories included in this universe are amazing, I would definitely recommend that you read all the threads in the master thread linked above!

This adorable fic is actually on Archive of Our Own, and it is about Jimin, a makeup Youtuber, and his tattoo artist boyfriend. This was one of the first full-length fics that I read from lvelyvmin, and I loved it. The two are both artists and they fit each other perfectly, and I loved both fics written about these two characters. The first one I read was when Jimin was doing a “boyfriend does my makeup” challenge with Tae. Tae is a tattoo artist, but he is an artist nonetheless, and the entire video is just Jimin realizing how much his boyfriend really pays attention to and supports his makeup career. Definitely a must-read.

I love universes where someone is a supernatural being trying to protect their very human partner. Tae wants to make sure that Jimin isn’t actually hurt by the dangerous ghosts and demons around them, but he also wants to allow Jimin to keep his dreams of his supernatural show. So he has to toe the line between allowing Jimin to see “proof of supernatural beings” and scaring the real ghosts away. I hope that this au is expanded on even more, or maybe into a full fic, but we will see what happens!

Thanks for reading these recommendations, I hope you like Lvelyvmin’s stories as much as I did!

Fanfiction Fridays: BTS Threadfics Edition

Alright so I love BTS fanfiction still, nothing new, but threadfics are a new type of fanfiction that I have been reading lately. Rather than the story being posted on Fanfiction.net or Archive of Our Own, the fanfiction is posted on Twitter and told in a series of tweets. Some of these stories are “what if the members of BTS used social media” but a lot actually take the members of BTS and put them into a completely different universe. Here are a few of my favorites, I will do another post next Friday with some more!

Yoonmin Gamer AU @MisterMaia

https://twitter.com/MissterMaia/status/865610397189103616

I wasn’t planning on putting this AU on the list, I didn’t even know that it existed until I started to go through her list of threadfics and pick out my favorite ones. This one is short, and it adhered to the old twitter character limit so it is a bit more choppy, but it is a really sweet Yoongi/Jimin fanfic. No one is famous in this story, they are all just people who like playing a specific MMORPG. I wish that the author, MisterMaia, kept writing threadfics. She is inactive now, focusing on her health instead, and keeps the account up as an archive. Look at the thread of the second tweet to see links to all of her fanfics and threadfics!

By the way, AU = Alternate Universe. These will be all Alternate Universe stories!

Fae Royalty YoonMin AU @subminjiminie

I love this moodboard, it is so beautiful! And it really fits this AU. This threadfic even has a sequel which is just as good. I always love a story where they take the members of a group of characters of a book and do the “light vs. dark” theme. This is written in the new Twitter format, so it reads almost like a book with small paragraphs instead of short sentences.

Yoonmin Single Father Loan Shark @MisterMaia

https://twitter.com/MissterMaia/status/930752232332582912

Even though the story takes place in a strip club, it is pretty clean for the most part. Nothing explicit. Instead, it focuses on Jimin being saved from the lowest point of his life by a handsome stranger. The stranger never even spoke to him, until he was being attacked. All of MisterMaia’s stories are so great, but these are two that I ended up reading as I was trying to create this post.

YoonMin Toy AU @Centristy

Again with the adorable moodboards! This one also has a Taekook version, but I prefer the Yoonmin one personally. Yoongi is a toy who used to be a man, and Jimin is his loving owner. Even though Jimin is an orphan, Yoongi was always his friend. Jimin kept him in perfect condition, and Yoongi started to learn to enjoy being a toy. Until he wasn’t a toy anymore.

Yoonkook Rapper/Youtuber Au @ynmkook

I don’t read many YoonKook stories, simply because I rarely see ones that interest me. But this one drew me in several months ago, and I loved every minute of it. This is an example of one of the social media AU’s, but the characters are still not members of BTS. Would definitely recommend!

Hotter Than Hell @kinkmins

If you can’t already tell, this one has more adult content than the other threadfics. It is also a mixture between a texting threadfic, regular threadfic, and a screenshot threadfic. Sometimes when characters talk face-to-face, the author will write the story in paragraph style and post screenshots for readers to be able to read more at one time. This is also one of the longer threadfics on the list, but I definitely enjoyed it from beginning to end. If you like adult A/B/O (Alpha/Beta/Omega) fanfiction, then this is for you.
