Solo (One-shot)

Title: Solo

Author: shiryu_yugure

Characters: Kyuhyun-centric; mentions of Yesung and Ryeowook (K.R.Y. hints)

Rating: G

Genre: General, slight angst

Summary: Kyuhyun doesn’t like performing alone as much as he thought he would.

A/N: Partly inspired by Kyuhyun’s (chill-inducing, go watch it :D) recent solo performance for Yoo Youngsuk’s showcase, and the bit of the Showbiz Extra where K.R.Y. were brought up in the bit after his singing. I miss these three, hope they’re going to be a bit more active soon despite SJ-M’s impending comeback and Super Show II.

Disclaimer: If I owned Super Junior there’d be a K.R.Y. album by now. (3rdjib doesn’t count.)

 

Singing solo scares Kyuhyun a little, because there’s a thrill that comes from hearing his voice fill the silence, a thrill he could get addicted to even as his heart pounds, music all in his ears and mind as he stands there singing, pouring his soul into every sound that falls from his lips, fingers wrapped around the microphone.

 

It’s a high in and of itself, performing in front of so many people, as he draws out the note and lets the world fall away around him, closing his eyes with blinding light shining at his back as it all fades away –

 

But there’s none of Yesung’s deep and husky voice to relax into, all rich spice and musk to melt the frost of the atmosphere and ease his nerves like a cup of hot coffee; none of Ryeowook’s high and explosively powerful voice harmonizing with his, an angel’s lovely entrancing trill to drive shivers up his spine and give him the adrenaline rush of a lifetime.

 

He’s never realized how empty it sounds without them there until now, and it’s all he can do to keep his throat from tightening and his last note from turning into an inelegant squeak as it fades away.

 

It feels like something’s missing even more when Ryeowook’s customary “Kamsahamnida” doesn’t echo out around him in the wake of the performance, and when Yesung’s arm doesn’t drape across his shoulders. He strains his ears, searching for two voices in the cacophony that surrounds him even when he knows they’re nowhere near.

 

He lets out a shaky breath, arms stiff at his side as he bows and the audience explodes into cheers while his hands twitch, no warm dainty fingers to curl around his left palm and no long, slender fingers interlacing with his right.

 

It’s in the part afterwards where he finds himself even more aware of their absence – he can barely think of what to say in response to the praise being lavished on him; there’s no Yesung being Yesung-hyung to take control of the situation and speak for them, smooth as chocolate despite the occasional stumble that gives Kyuhyun the opening to play off of him; there’s no Ryeowook being fidgety and all sweet, quiet smiles for Kyuhyun to entice out of his shell. It’s just him and his senior sitting onstage, bright white spotlights hot on his face and the audience staring up at them as his face burns and he bites the inside of his cheek, mind running a mile a minute.

 

It’s terribly impolite, really, for him to be sitting here with all these thoughts flitting across his mind instead of concentrating on what’s being said right in front of him, but he can’t help but blurt out “Ryeowookie” when he hears “Yesung”, can’t hear K.R.Y. being mentioned without something stirring in his head and chest, knowing they’re not there.

 

He flushes and stands up to bow deeply after another heartwarming accolade that he’s barely paid attention to, vowing to himself that he’d make it up to his sunbae-nim because really, he’s happy, and this is huge for him – mind-blowing, in fact, and yet…

 

It takes all of his self-restraint to sit there for the rest of the showcase and not exit the door at a full run out into the liberating breeze of the night air even as he sits back and sighs, his mind wandering beyond the cool glass of windows draped in velvet curtains as he sits in the darkness, song after song melting into the background, heart still aching for the echoes of two beautiful voices beside his.

Ouran is so cracky XD I have a sudden urge to go watch it again, Tamaki's hamster face is epic.

Hi thar, One Piece! 8DD; *prods*

Haha, I see XD That was practically instantaneous though, I had to blink to make sure I hadn't carbon-copied something to myself.

K.R.Y. INTERACTION IS IN HIGH DEMAND, YES. SINGING ON YYMM. IS NOT NEARLY ENOUGH. :|

SOBBING, SOBBING, GOD WHY DID YOU NOT WARN ME BEFOREHAND YOU WERE WRITING SOMETHING SO HEARTBREAKINGLY BEAUTIFUL, I WENT TO READ IT HAPPILY AND NOW MY HEART IS ACHING. I could feel Kyuhyun's pain and disorientation and unease because omg, you. YOU AND YOUR WRITING. WHY. HOW.

But there’s none of Yesung’s deep and husky voice to relax into, all rich spice and musk to melt the frost of the atmosphere and ease his nerves like a cup of hot coffee; none of Ryeowook’s high and explosively powerful voice harmonizing with his, an angel’s lovely entrancing trill to drive shivers up his spine and give him the adrenaline rush of a lifetime.
The way you describe their voices, so, so, SO beautiful, there are no words.

song after song melting into the background, heart still aching for the echoes of two beautiful voices beside his.
OH, KYUHYUN. *sobs* *cuddles* I agree so much, they don't ever see complete without each other's voices harmonising and blending and weaving into each other. Separately they may be amazing by themselves, because they're just so talented, but together they are magical.

This broke my heart, and now I want KRY so badly. Take away SJ-H and SJ-M (even though I love them), give me KRY back. PLEASE PLEASE. *crying*

FAJKALJF I JUST SAW THE CLIP THIS MORNING AFTER CLASS AND I WAS ALMOST BAWLING WATCHING IT. Kyuhyun was so smiley and then out of nowhere, YYS said Yesung and he was all "Ryeowookie~" and I died, died so hard. I miss KRY so much T_T Kyuhyun's magnae snark and Ryeowook being alternatively quiet and flaily and Yesung.

They all sound great alone but together, geez. Incredible.

Come back, K.R.Y., before the other subgroup promotions break you apart again T_T ♥

Agh, I know, but at least SJ-M are definitely having a comeback. An official K.R.Y. comeback with activities and stuff seems to be never >_< Dangit, SM.

ASDFGHJKLSAS~~ I love your descriptions! ♥♥♥

Kyuhyun's voice solo is amazing, but K.R.Y. sends chills up and down my spine and they're so gorgeous and they harmonize so well together and ASDFGHJKLSAS~~ I adore the emotion that your Kyuhyun is emoting here.

Kyuhyun makes me want to squish him with the things he says sometimes, he's so sweet despite the snark D:

That video broke me. Come back, KRY D:

I love your writing. The description of their voices was perfect, and Kyuhyun's thought process was so realistic... &hearts&hearts&hearts

Thank you! ^^ The description of their voices was the first bit I actually ended up writing, and probably my favorite bit out of this xD; Kyuhyun seems to be the easiest head for me to get into.

KRY needs to come back and be all clingy again, yes D: *wibbles*
