a/b/o where Tae comes from a traditional pack with old fashioned values, one of which is this: no one can see an omega's hair or his neck except his mate.
Enter jock jk who walks in on Taehyung in his dorm room, with his hair untied and wearing just a towel.
Taehyung is the first omega from his pack to ever go to college. And the big, modern city is terrifying but Tae is eager to learn more and become a doctor so he can come back and help his pack, which is still very primitive in many ways.
But although he tries to fit in,
There are some things Tae doesn't want to give up. One of which is his long waist length hair and the way he braided it up, and the other is his traditional hanbok which covers him up completely, from neck to toes. He feels connected to his roots because of them.
The hanbok has the crest of his pack and while at first a lot of alphas took it as some kind of challenge to hit on him and try to hook up with him, now after nearly a year in college, most people respect his choices. Tae has no intention of dating anyone. He wants to be courted.
And not just by anyone but only by someone who wants to mate him. He knows that alphas in the city don't have such values and he's fine with that. He can go back to his pack after jis studies and find someone there with the same values as him.
The college administration is very happy to have him and as a result they give him a separate room with no room mates, far away from any of the mixed dorms. Taehyung in fact has little to no contact with alphas in the campus and it suits him just fine.
Now Jeon Jungkook could well be called the opposite of everything Taehyung represents.
The son of two very successful surgeons, Jungkook is also studying to be a doctor, but he's far less noble about it. He's smart and studying comes naturally. He has a hospital to inherit.
Jungkook is popular, well liked and also a bit of a fkboi who enjoys casual dating and has no intention of ever settling down. He loves omegas, all kinds of them and thinks it would be unfair to tie himself down with one when he could have them all.
Friday nights are Jungkook's favorite time of the week. He gets pleasantly buzzed with his friends and usually finds a nice omega to take to his bed.
Cue, one such Friday night when a pretty omega whispers his dorm room number to him and disappears into the crowd.
Slightly tipsy Jungkook stumbles his way up the stairs to the omega dorms and is a little confounded. Was it 204 or 214?
In the end he tries the first door he chances on( 204) .
The door opens and he stumbles in, falling face first on a soft brown carpet.
There's a semi loud scream and Jungkook jumps a little.
He blinks bleary eyes up in the direction the scream came from only to be met by a pair of wide, frightened brown eyes and long silky black hair.
The scent is nothing like he's ever smelled before : sweet and delicate.
Because of his really long hair and his really packed schedule, taehyung only ever gets the time to wash his beautiful black locks, during the weekend. He's made a bit of a tradition out of it, using all of the traditional oils and salves he's brought from home.
He also loves the way his hair smells after he's done, like jasmine and hibiscus, with a little touch of apricot there.
Taehyung steps out of the bathroom that evening, hair loose around his shoulders, damp and dripping , wearing just a towel around his waist.
He hadn't locked the door to his dorm because he's pretty much the only one there. All the other omegas are out on dates or at parties or studying in the library.
Which is why he is absolutely horrified when someone stumbles into his room, falling face down at once.
Before he could fully recover, the scent of alpha fills his room, strong and potent, making his knees go weak. He hasn't been this close to an alpha , in such a confined space, ever.
The alpha looks up at him and Taehyung balks.
He's so very handsome.
"Fuck you're so much prettier than I remember, gorgeous. " The alpha slurs. " And freshly showered too. Come here baby, let alpha show you a good time. "
Taehyung's eyes go wide and he doesn't think.
He grabs the large broom by the side of the door and whacks him. Repeatedly.
The alpha yelps at that, throwing his hands up over his head as the omega rains down hits, eyes wide and lips parted.
All the while, he yells at the alpha to get out and Jungkook growls, stunned.
"Ow.. Wait.. Ow... Listen... Ow.. What the fuck... Will you stop.. "
The next second Taehyung is pinned to the wall behind him, the alphas body pressing him against it, his hands gripping Taehyung's wrists, wrenching the broom and tossing it away before pinning them together over his head.
Taehyung's heart stops.
".... Hitting me? " The alpha finishes, eyes dark and intense, staring into his own with a heavy, smoldering look in them. " If you're so against it, why did you ask me to come over? " He whispers.
Taehyung gulps, drowning in the scent of alpha and blushing from the proximity.
"I didn't. You came into my room uninvited. " He stutters, unable to look the alpha in the eye and turning away.
It is only then that Jungkook takes note of the golden akin, the unmarked neck and the long hair.
" Kim Taehyung? " He whispers, stunned.
He almost jumps back.
Of course Jungkook has heard all about Tae.He's seen him a few times too but the omega always hides behind the long curtain of his veiled hanbok, never looking up from the ground when he walks. He's pretty sure no one has seen his face.
He swallows, eyes flitting over his body.
Taehyung is possibly the most gorgeous omega he has ever seen in his life, but Jungkook knows exactly how demure and shy he is. So he averts his eyes, reaching wildly for the comforter on the bed and wrapping the omega in it.
"I'm so sorry. " He says quietly, looking away.
Jungkook's actions finally pull taehyung out of his trance and he realizes, all of a sudden the gravity of what happened. He realizes just how jungkook had found him.
His lips wobble a bit and he tears up, skin going icy cold in sadness.
And in his mind it's all his own fault. Hw shouldn't have left the door open.
Jungkook can't stop thinking of Taehyung.
He's not sure why the omega has taken permanent residence in his mind. But ever since that night, he hasn't been able to hook up with anyone. He doesn't even want to.
Instead he really wants to sit in a meadow full of wildflowers, and braid taehyung's hair for him.
Yup, he's pretty far gone already.
So he decides to confide about his troubles to the only person who wouldn't mock him, the only person he trusts : his mother.
Jungkook's mother is of course deeply amused by it all but tells him what he already knows. If he wants to get to know Taehyung he has to respect his traditions and beliefs.
Jungkook is a little terrified, because he's not ready to mate yet. But he really, really likes Taehyung.
So in the end, Jungkook's mother ends up travelling with him, all the way to Daegu, during the term break. They had done a bit of research and apparently Jungkook can only think of courting Taehyung if his pack alpha agrees.
They're thinking of a really stern old man, ready to rip Jungkook's neck out for even daring to think of tainting their pure omega.
Instead they're met by a strapping young man barely older than Jungkook himself who introduces himself as Kim Namjoon.
Jungkook is charmed.
Namjoon explains that while they do cherish the old traditions and the way of living, there's nothing restrictive about their pack. Everyone is free to follow only the traditions they like. Taehyung was the one who enjoyed those traditions the most.
Namjoon takes them around the pack, and introduces them to other alphas and omegas and sure enough no one has long, long hair or dresses the way Taehyung does. But everyone is quietly shy and polite.
They lead a simple life and Jungkook feels completely at peace there.
As they walk around the pack Jungkook finally finds Tae, sitting on the shore of a clear blue lake, his hair pulled up into a top knot, golden hanbok glinting in the sun.
The omega is sitting in front of a large easel, painting quietly.
Jungkook's heart skips several beats.
Because what Taehyung is painting is a portrait of Jungkook.
His mother whispers a soft wow and Namjoon chuckles softly.
"He's gotten a lot better at it. The first time he painted your picture, I was certain you were the ugliest alpha I had ever seen in my life. "
( why must everything turn into crack wtf is wrong with me
In the end Jungkook ends up asking for Namjoons permission to court taehyung, simply because it's something Taehyung would want.
They all go back to Seoul after term break and Jungkook makes it clear to everyone that he is now a taken man.
The alpha waits outside Taehyung's dorm building every morning, with a different courting gift, ranging from pretty beads for Taehyung's hair , jeweled combs, to hand embroidered silk handkerchiefs, with their initials stitched onto them.
Taehyung is still very shy but a week into the courting he finally reaches out and holds Jungkook's hand when the alpha is turning away to leave.
Jungkook is stunned but Taehyung goes on his tip toes and kisses his forehead.
"I love you, my alpha. " He whispers.
Of course to someone like Jungkook it feels like it's too soon but he knows Taehyung means it with his whole heart.
So he smiles and kisses his nose.
"I love you too, Kim taehyung. "
*several months later*
Jimin stares at Jungkook with an unimpressed look on his face.
"You're telling me you got married three weeks ago and he's already pupped? " He demands.
Taehyung is a few dozen feet away happily dipping his leg in the swimming pool.
Jungkook had the good grace to blush a little.
"Taehyung doesn't believe in birth control. " He smiles.
Jimin whacks him on the head.
"But you could believe in a little self control?? "
Jungkook shrugs grinning and throwing an arm around his best friend.
"Park Jimin, I want you to take a deep, deep breath and then take a good long look at my mate. " He whispered.
Jimin stared at Taehyung.
"Can anyone... And I mean anyone, exercise self control?"
Taehyung and Jungkook go on to have a lot of mini taes and mini kooks and they also open a fully equipped, modern hospital in Taehyung's pack.
Jungkook stays home and helps raise the pups, while Taehyung works as the head doctor, living his dreams.
This was a very silly drabble inspired by my husband randomly saying he's never seen any woman wash their hair except me and he thinks it's something special.
