THIS GOES FOR EVERYONE.
(D.Ark(Kim Woorim) x fem!reader)
Based on this video requested by anon.
This is cringy as shit. Writing this also reminded me that I was bad, no terrible at writing romance.
Reader is Kangbaek’s sister and she tries to save herself from embarrassment as she unexpectedly encounters her crush.

"I'm home!" You called as you stumbled to take your shoes off by the door. Your brows furrowed as you noticed an unfamiliar pair of shoes. You haven't seen those before and you haven't been told that there was going to be any guests.
You headed straight to your room, having already eaten dinner outside. When you were passing the kitchen, you stopped dead in your tracks.
Kim Woorim also known as D.Ark was sitting at the table in your family's house. D.Ark was sitting in your house!
"Wha-?" You gasped your eyes going back and fourth between Woorim, your brother and your parents. Before you could say anything else, Kangbaek cut you off, "That's my sister, (y/n)." He said to Woorim. The boy smiled and waved his hand awkwardly, making eye contact with you for a split second before the both of you looked away.
"You're back earlier than usual." Kangbaek commented, looking towards you.
"Y-yeah, practice ended early." You stammered, still trying to wrap your head around the fact that the one you have been talking about ever since High School Rapper 4 started was right before your eyes. You also may or may not have a crush on him.
"Why don't you go change, (y/n). Have you eaten?" You mother asked.
"I had some after practice.."
"It better not been ramen." Your mother narrowed her eyes.
"Well, but it was the only-" You protested but your mother ushered you to the table and drew a chair next to Woorim. Flustered, you tried to act as natural as you could. But your plans didn't last long as Woorim spoke to you.
"Hi." He said, "I'm Kim Woorim."
"I'm (y/n)." You managed.
"She's been talking about you ever since-"
"Shut up!" You snapped at Kangbaek, feeling your cheeks warm up. Woorim chuckled and shook his head in an amused way.
After dinner you headed straight to your room to save yourself from further embarrassment. Kangbaek seemed to be more intent on making you embarrass yourself in front of your crush. Typical brother.
"Agh." You groaned burying your head in your arms, replaying and cringing at how awkward you acted around Woorim and how he would think you as a weirdo now.
You lifted your head when you heard a knock on your door. Expecting it to be one of your family members, you were surprised to see Woorim standing there.
"Uh, hi. I was about to leave soon but, uh, can I have your number?" Woorim asked, fidgeting a little. He wanted your number? but why?
“S-sure.” You stammered, taking the phone Woorim handed to you. You typed your number in. You also handed him your phone so he could enter his number in.
“HEY WOORIM! YOU READY YET?” Kangbaek called.
“Text me.” Woorim smiled, waving good bye. I nodded and waved back, feeling my cheeks heat up once again.
God, I really hope things work out between me and him.

biggest supporter (tartaglia)
relationship: rapper!tartaglia x reader
warnings: not proof-read, got unnecessarily long, childe gets referred to by all three of his name and it keeps switching throughout the fic
author's note: based on @/veechu_'s genshin idol doodle where the husbandos are part of an idol group called dckz and tartaglia is the main rapper. i'm a simp for rappers, okay?
childe was a name that was globally known. the name, albeit amusing at times to hear, was the stage name given to the youngest and main rapper of a rising idol group known as dckz. as a rapper, he was well known for his flexibility; he can rap fast, he can rap slow, he can rap in various of ways that no one knows what to expect until he opens his mouth. his stage presence was immense — although their fans all agree that no one can ever beat kaeya's stage presence — and his eyes were always burning with passion and determination. his facial features and his movements are always precise and on point, making it hard to look away from him.
of course, as most idols, his duality was something that never fails to give fans a whiplash. while he was well known on the stage by his stage name; off-stage, he was better known by tartaglia. though it wasn't his real name, that's what he uses as, despite his love for his fans, he prefers to limit the use of his real name, ajax, for his family and close friends. while childe was intense, tartaglia was an energetic young man who was full with boyish charms that can capture anyone's eyes and heart in a blink of an eye. he was much more carefree and bubbly.
childe and tartaglia — that's how the world knows him. dckz's main rapper and youngest member.
but to you, he was simply just ajax.
"hi, you must be new here! what's your name?"
you met ajax long before he became an idol. you two were classmates in middle school and you were the first one he told about his plans to audition for an idol group. throughout his preparations up to present time, you were always there by his side as his best friend. though you eventually grew somewhat lonely after he devoted nearly every to training, you were beyond ecstatic to see him reach his dreams. that's why you made sure to be there, on the very front row, when his group made their debut. you were always there for ajax no matter what. whether he needs critiques, somewhat to listen, someone to seek advice from, someone to lean on, or simply someone to ground him, you were always there. of course, you also made sure to support him further by buying their merchandise and streaming their releases.
though, you always joke how your bias is and always will be the main dancer, kaeya — something he gets sulky about especially when you showed him your photocard collection. unbeknownst to him, however, you have a special collection of his photocards that you hide.
even if he can't always see you, he would make sure to text or call at least once a day. be it a good morning or a good night, he makes sure to do so. you reciprocate by checking up on him, and reminding him to not overwork himself. these exchanges only grew further after he asked you out after their dating ban ended.
"i know i'm not the best option as i can't always be there to be with you but—" he took your hand in his, placing a soft kiss against your knuckles. "—will you give me the chance to show you how much i loved and love you by letting me be your boyfriend?"
you happily accepted as you already had feelings for him for who knows how long.
it was a tough ride as his best friend, and it was even tougher as his girlfriend. you couldn't go on dates due to his busy schedule and out of his wish to not reveal you to the public.
he wants to show you off but he doesn't want any of his fans to drag you into anything. he wants you to enjoy your life without having to deal with obsessive fans breathing on your neck.
there's also the fact that a lot of people are interested in him. while you didn't always feel jealous over his fans, you can't help your insecurities sometimes. luckily, ajax would always take the time to patiently assure you.
"they don't know me like you do, (y/n). and they're not you either. i love you because you're you, and i'll always keep on loving you no matter what."
so despite all the hardships of being his girlfriend, you accept everything with open arms. because you know that so long as it's with ajax, you'll be able to get through anything.
"i love you," you whisper as you snap out of your trance, eyes softening at the sight of your boyfriend's face on the screen.
it was already one in the morning yet he was still up and holding a livestream for his fans. he's been talking to them for more than an hour now and you can't help but feel your heart swell with pride at the sight of him happy and comfortable with his job as an idol.
he deserves this.
feeling sleep call upon you, you pull your phone and send a quick text to him. you were sure that he won't be able to read it soon but you still wanted to bid him a good night anyway. to your surprise, he picks his phone — he was using his manager's phone up to hold the livestream — up and you could see the way his features softened.
"well, it's getting late so i need to end this stream soon," he tells his fans. "but before that, i'll leave you guys with a song!"
despite his sharpness as a rapper, he was still an incredible singer. he had the voice of an angel and it never fails to make you feel safe and warm when he sings to you. so after hearing this, you quickly lay down your bed and tuck yourself in with the blankets.
you close your eyes just as childe starts to sing, his voice soothin every bit of your nerves. you could feel sleep pull you tighter, making you release a soft and contented sigh. by the time childe finished singing, you were practically asleep. but you were still slightly awake to check the message you received from ajax after feeling your phone buzz softly.
"good night, sweetheart. i love you and see you tomorrow."
Red tomorrow, red today.
