It’s kind of hard to believe that here we are now, celebrating EXO’s second anniversary. So much has happened in EXO’s second year that it seems like a blur; I can’t believe I’ve been a fan of EXO for two years now. When I think about how much EXO has achieved and gone through together in the past year, I’m filled with pride. But at the same time, it’s humbling. So incredibly humbling. On April 8th, 2013, on their first anniversary, EXO still only had one mini album, a mere six songs, to their name: MAMA. Three hundred and sixty five days ago, I was still wondering if we were ever going to get a comeback – the dreaded C word that eventually became taboo in this fandom, along with the S word “soon.” It’s still hard to forget the near mortification I felt when EXO attended the annual Dream Concert in 2013 and performed the same song, “MAMA,” that they performed when they attended the 2012 Dream Concert. I remember clearly thinking, as the 2013 Dream Concert drew nearer and nearer, that surely SM would plan a surprise comeback before then… But no. EXO was a nugu group who performed their debut title song at the same event one full year later, while other groups that had debuted the same year as EXO were performing their newer songs, able to boast a much longer discograph. It was a little embarrassing at the time. And if it was embarrassing to me, EXO themselves probably felt even worse. The level of anxiety, restlessness, and impatience in the fandom was growing by the day. Some fans even left; and I sometimes caught myself wondering what I was sticking around for, when there were plenty of other k-pop groups releasing new stuff and doing things.

124. FANACCOUNT: 130825 KCON/Mnet M!Countdown: What's Up L.A.

My friends and I arrived at the venue at around noon, but there was no line for the 7:00PM concert to be seen. I heard that some fans started lining up for the concert since four in the morning but, nope, apparently that wasn’t early enough for other fans because there were some who lined up at the gates since midnight…! Too bad for those fans that around noon, the kcon staff came to break up the line anyway and told everybody that the VIP1 ticket holders were not allowed to line up for the concert until 4PM. Fans just started congregating around the stadium entrance, milling around waiting for 4PM to roll around so that they could run to get a good spot in line, but the kcon staff kept breaking the groups up every so often and pushing everybody back, away from the doors. They were trying to get people to actually go to the convention and enjoy the events and panels but everybody just wanted to get a good spot in the pit for the concert lol.

120. FANACCOUNT: 121109 Big Bang Alive Tour in Newark, NJ

As I’m typing this, it’s noon the day after the concert and I’m sitting in bed in my Alive Tour t-shirt, foregoing sleep after 24 hours of being out and about, because I don’t want to forget any detail about the whole experience of going to the Big Bang concert. Yesterday was a day that I definitely do not want to forget, because it is one of the best (if not the best) night of my life.

119. FANFIC: "Damage Control"

Title: Damage Control
Fandom: EXO
Pairing/Characters: kaixing / kailay; OT6-K plus Luhan and Lay
Genre: Humor and a bit of mushy romance
Rating: PG-13 for some slight swearing and mentions of sexy timez
Words: ~5000
Summary: The K members have a sleepover in their living room for a little group powwow so that Joonmyun can deal with his leader complex; but, thanks to a couple of text messages, things get way more out of hand than Jongin would like.

Author’s Note: I blame the entirety of this on Annie. We were talking about how peculiar it was that the other K members were snickering in the background when Kai announced he was going to send a message to Lay in the Sina livechat and she said (and I quote), “WHAT IS GOING ON WHAT HAPPENED DOES KAI PINE FOR LAY AT EXO K SLEEPOVERS SO K SNIGGERS AT HIM FOR BEING SO LIKE LOVELORN WHAT IS GOING ON” ...I mean, how could I walk away from a prompt like that 8D

This is the longest fanfic I've ever written and it's 5k of nothingness, I apologize OTL. (It got out of control, how ironic, hurr hurr.) And GOD it's really hard writing D.O. It's hard writing humor without resorting to caricatures in general ;~; But I hope you guys have as much fun reading this as I had writing it!

118. FANFIC: "Weight of Dreams"

Title: Weight of Dreams
Fandom: EXO
Pairing/Characters: kaixing / kailay / Kai & Lay
Genre: angst
Words: ~800
Rating: G
Summary: “There’s an entire history that Jongin and Yixing share, even beyond the stories the twinge of pain from old injuries can tell, and Jongin puts everything they have into that embrace.”

Inspired by the kailay hug at the awards ceremony where EXO won their first award.

Author’s Note: You knew this was coming, right. How could something like a kailay hug pass by me without a fic written about it, haha. In reality, according to some fancams, I think the kailay hug happened when EXO-M was announced as the winner, ie before Lay starts crying on stage after accepting the award. But I started writing this before I saw the fancams and this is how I imagined it happening the moment I saw the picture, so I’ve made it so that the kailay hug happens after the award was given.

This is so unpolished lol. Just a drabble. This might turn into something longer in the future, idk.

Thanks for reading!
