a synonym for stupidity  
I wrote this for a meme on xiahtic's journal, and it is... whatever, because I wrote it in like 15 minutes, but it is late, and I can't even bring myself to care, so just, like, whatever, okay.

title: a synonym for stupidity
rating: PG-13
fandom/pairing: SHINee, somewhat gen onkey
excerpt: But Kibum still sort of feels like a huge, gaping asshole.

"Yah, Jonghyun. Kibum."

There's this pause, and for a moment Kibum thinks there's a stranger in the room. However, when he looks up, Lee Jinki, this dumb kid who's supposed to be their leader, is staring at them with the most witheringly irritated look in the world.

Kibum's just like, what the hell? Since when can that guy even unsmile his face?

"Seriously, you guys," Jinki says wearily, folding his arms across his chest. "We are all tired, but the sooner we finish, the sooner we can leave."

Jonghyun puffs up defensively but doesn't say anything, instead opting for an excessively dramatic staring match with Jinki, who seems more than willing to oblige even though the look on his face is more akin to disappointment than anger.

It's all pretty dumb, but Kibum still sort of feels like a huge, gaping asshole. Like, if there was a dictionary definition of 'huge, gaping asshole,' then Jonghyun's picture would be next to it, and Kibum's name would be under 'synonyms.'

"So," Jinki continues, letting his eyes flick between them. "So, this is the part where you guys, uh... admit you've done wrong in your goofing-off-ness all throughout dance practice and getting us in trouble with Manager-hyung... and stuff, and like all your transgressions and things and. And... yeah. Repent, please."

Jonghyun sort of deflates and ducks his face down to scratch the back of his head, like he always does when he's hiding a smile.

"And get up and dance more! So we can leave!" Jinki adds loudly. His usual grin sort of bursts out all over his face. "And we hug! Because I am such a great leader!"

No one moves.

So Jinki declares, "Okay! Go!"

Lucky for him, Taemin actually takes the cue and runs into Jinki's arms, dragging Minho along after him, which makes Jinki laugh all loud and stupid-like. They are soon joined by Jonghyun, who is pretending to be reluctant, but is definitely squealing secretly about his adorable band in his mind.

"Hey, Kibum-ah!" Jinki calls from the cornucopia of love. "I did good, huh? I've been saving up that bravery for like seven years!" He stretches one arm out and wiggles impatient fingers when Kibum doesn't hug him right away.

Kibum laughs a little shakily and waits a couple more seconds before he sort of lunges at Jinki's chest and latches on accordingly.

"You are such an idiot," he mutters into Jinki's shoulder, looking at the reflection of all of them in the mirror-wall of the dance studio.

"Yah, Kibum-ah. Your voice sounds funny," he says as he wraps a warm arm around Kibum's back.

Kibum sniffs and smacks Jinki's shoulder. "I'm sorry, okay? Babo."

Later, Kibum will threaten Jonghyun into offering a similarly hesitant apology and call up his grandma to ask for her bulgogi recipe and have a dream where Jinki turns into a gigantic killer rabbit and destroys Seoul with an impossibly large carrot, but for now he just leans into the warmth and tries not to remember what Jinki looked like without a smile. It's pretty stupid.

I hope you don't mind me butting in, but I think it's synonym FOR and synonymous TO? Just for the sake of us not being confused. xD

I have to admit. You sort of kind of own my life right now. It was like...a fic drought and BAM 'OOH, LOOK! SHINee FICCAGE~'

Jonghyun's picture would be next to it, and Kibum's name would be under 'synonyms.'
Probably my favorite line...

a dream where Jinki turns into a gigantic killer rabit and destroys Seoul with an impossibly large carrot
...but this line could be next in line tbh.

GAH. I thoroughly enjoyed this. A lot of the times I see them together Jinki's always like :D HELLO WORLD! while Kibum's like :) UH. HI.

I think this captured their relationship quite well.
