Title: Stuck in Limbo
Author: marlenem
Pairing: Kame/Jin
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 25,400
Warnings: excessive pessimism and rudeness
Author's Notes: Originally written for the Fire and Ice fic exchange at pt_pirates.
Summary: In a universe where human values are measured by how high individuals rank in their social media outlets, where the quality of existence depends on an app that lets one rate another on a scale of one to five, where popularity defines everything and everyone, and where human relationships are shallower than ever, Jin and Kame both have lessons to learn. Inspired by Nosedive, a stimulating episode of Black Mirror.

“Say something,” Jin asks more gentle this time, because he will certainly not give up and Kame can't run from him forever. He pulls his phone out when Kame remains quiet. It's awkward using it against him, like he's spying on him without his consent. The camera recognizes his face and the stars show up above his head, and Jin's heart sinks.

Notes: (READ, PLEASE!) First of all, if you stumbled upon this story just now, please read the notes at the beginning of chapter 1! Thank you.
For the rest of you: It took me 5 years to update this fic. I'm sorry for that. I wonder if anyone's still around? I've been through a lot in these five years and as a consequence I fell out of the fandom and stopped writing altogether. I started missing writing lately and I definitely wanted to finish this story. Looking at it now, I'm glad I took a break. I think the person I was five years ago wouldn't have been able to handle the reality of what Kame's going through as realistically as the person I am now. I based his character on a load of research. Also, I decided to ignore everything that went down with KAT-TUN since 2011.

He spends the majority of his free time writing music. He doesn't know what he's going to do with them – there's more than enough to release a solo album, but he puts so much of himself, his feelings into the lyrics that he isn't sure he wants anybody to hear them and know they're his. All of them are ballads, and not very happy ones. When Junno spends an afternoon at his place, he convinces Kame to play some, and when he does, Junno's cheerful mood is gone for the rest of the day.
