Reflection: Just a High School Love Story


So this fic started out being written for me and me alone. I started it in class one day to pass the time and felt like I should post it for my 1st year anniversary on livejournal. Obviously, things didn’t go as planned as I put it off and posted it on my 3rd year anniversary on livejournal. From there, it took me almost until my 4th anniversary of writing fanfic to finish the story. It had started out as a one shot that soon became too long it needed chapters.
I started off writing it on pieces of paper, front and back with little formatting. It turned out to be 37 pages of handwritten fic with notes on the margins. I had several notes and only used some of them in the actual fic because after I typed it all up, I changed my mind about some details and because I hadn’t finished it by hand, I finished it on the computer which is where things really changed. I only used my little margin notes a few times but forgot most as I continued writing.
All typed up, the fic became 137 pages (not including my author’s notes or the title part at the beginning then it’s 138 pages.) So as you can see, this is a pretty long fic. I didn’t keep word count since that would’ve been extra work on my part.
I enjoyed this fic though I will admit I dragged a few things out. I enjoy playing with Super Junior and love to drag things out more than necessary for my OTPs heeheehee~
But that means I neglect some of the others as well. Originally, I wasn’t going to include all the pairings but as I kept writing, I just inadvertently put them in.
I’m surprised I didn’t put in a smut scene for Yewook but even I would like a break from the smut I write XD (I seem to write a bit too much smut sometimes and typically limit to one detailed sex scene per fic though some are special and get two, not sure if I ever made it to three) but yeah…
This fic was definitely fun to write when I actually did start writing it because as I’ve mentioned before, my muse likes to desert me at times and then I just have trouble writing. You’ve probably noticed I wrote a lot of EXO fics and a few Suju one shots here and there to fill the void. I’m a multi-tasker type of person so I have several fics started at once and finish them up at my own pace…sometimes it takes a while to finish a fic, other times, I can finish it in a snap. It just depends on how motivated and inspired I am to write the fic. But I definitely did enjoy writing this fic. I mean it was written for me so obviously I should enjoy it.
I don’t know if it’s one of my better chaptered fic (I think my biggest success in that department was my Girls vs. Boys fic but yeah :P) but this was definitely one I had planned more than the others. It has a special place in my heart.
I’m only slightly sad that it’s over and done with but it had to come to an end >.<

Last minute things I didn’t write in the author’s note but wanted to mention: The reason I threw Sibum in at the end right there is that I kept meaning to write them into the fic but as I mentioned before, I’ll focus on one couple and kind of forget the others. So I kept mentioning Sibum as a pairing but never got around to them until basically the end. And that wasn’t even my original plan for them but it works lol cracky as it is~ but this fic does have a decent amount of crack so it’s all good XDDDD
And sorry that I didn’t really put Shindong anywhere though I included all the other members XD you can just say he was the priest and there you go~ all the members of Suju were used in this fic XD

Now I’m gonna post my little cheat sheet for this fic aka the notes I made in the margins plus things to remember when reading the fic aka the little behind the scenes details you may or may not have noticed:

Margin Notes~
#1 sometime after Eunhae together:
DH – If I act like such a girl, why do I top you most of the time?
EH – B/c I like it better.
DH – No, it’s b/c you’re too lazy and want me to do all the work.
EH – well I like seeing you all sweaty and hot. Turns me on even more.
DH – mmm…I like that. Hae wraps arms around hyuk’s waist. Want to go back to my place and work up a sweat?
EH – sure. The two smiled and left hand in hand
Ewww…I did not need to know that. Minnie pretended to gag.

#4 later the three notice Ryeowook barely eats
Sungmin sees no breakfast
All see no lunch
Try to fix bt only Yesung can after observing Ryeo/Han
Send lil gifts, take him out to eat and share food

#5 another moment like this but it’s Ryeowook passed out. Start Yesung’s subtle help

#6 after a couple/few weeks
“aww isn’t that cute? He still bows to us.” Yesung frowned How is he gonna like me if he thinks of me as a sunbae?

#7 at a concert
Kyuhyun comes into audience and confessed to Sungmin who runs away leaving him crushed. Later tells him (Sungmin) he’ll wait for him. When he wants a relationship, let him know

#8 Teukie hyung waiting for Youngwoo. Started using the name leeteuk cause that nickname Youngwoon gave. Youngwoon went away, wanted to as kTeuk to wait but felt it unfair (he still did anyway)

#9 love at 1st sight for Donghae. Stuck close to keep anyone from taking Hyukkie. Had been afraid of confessing

#10 Leeteuk and Youngwoon in accident which lead to Youngwoon leaving

#11 Ryeowook give Leeteuk present from Kangin. A memento from past (a ring = a promise) suppose to give earlier but forgot. Kangin comes by and proposes after getting call from Teukie about ring


As you can see, some notes made it into the fic and others did not. I also made other notes like time line and another fic idea :P but yeah I guess that ends my little reflection and notes?
last minute note: idky i titled it that long but the idea was to base it off fiction and real life which kind of happened but didn't. i'm not the best at choosing titles but whatever :P
