Fandom: SHINee
Pairing: Lee Taemin x Choi Minho (2Min)
Disclaimer: Image and link heavy! Image credits as tagged. Thanks to tasaimoo for helping with photoshop. Thanks to yunho and quellazaire for putting up with me. Please do not hotlink my pictures. I would like to keep my Photobucket up and running, thanks. :) This will be updated as often as I can manage, so feel free to leave fic recs/pictures.

The Min

Choi Minho. → Flaming Charisma Minho. December 9, 1991 (1991-12-09). Rapper. Lead rapper. Tallest. Formerly the most quiet member. Most competitive, best sportsman.

Lee Taemin. → Maknae Taemin. July 18, 1993 (1993-07-18). Dancer. Lead dancer. Youngest. Hardest working member. (I can't provide a clip, but Onew mentions all the time Taemin goes off to practice by himself.)

The Couple

투민 → → TwoMin → → 2Min → → taeminho

2Min → "The manga-esque couple." I’ve seen them tagged like that a lot. It’s true. I won’t deny it. Minho is tall, good looking, athletic and can come across as either completely gentle or a cocky jerk. Taemin is slender, and compared to Minho, smaller, cute rather than handsome and all around "delicate" looking. Every pairing has it’s cliche face. JongKey have the "perfect best friends" front and OnKey are the "awkward parents."

But, there isn’t much that they can do about that. It’s their dynamics.

And if there is one thing 2Min fans can site as their favorite aspect of the pairing, it’s their dynamics. (This comes from annoying all the 2Min fans I know into answering a ridiculous questionnaire. >D)

They're very close. Their friendship probably stems from being the two youngest of the group and it's obvious in their little mannerisms and the way they act around each other. They share a strong brotherly affection for one another, are arguably the two closest members aside from Key and Jonghyun, and are very open about the care they give each other.

Even though we all know Minho adores hyungs, he seems to have a special place for Taemin. (Minho never goes off to make friends with younger idols if they are around, he sticks to Taemin.) Minho is there to ruffle Taemin's hair, or hug him, or listen to him—Taemin being the only member younger than him, so Minho takes the chance to be a good hyung to him. But he doesn't smother Taemin with affection like the other members sometimes do, which is something I think Taemin deeply appreciates.

And Taemin has a special place for Minho. Taemin has admitted to being closest with Onew, but Taemin is also very close with Minho. While the other members tend to dote on Taemin, it's Minho that Taemin voluntarily interacts with. (Though sometimes, you can see Minho grabbing onto Taemin and pulling him in close.) His relationship with Minho, whether platonic or otherwise, is built on Taemin viewing Minho (and of course the other members) like his older brother, especially since Taemin can't spend time with his own biological brother. And I think Minho, as someone who entered that role early in Taemin's 'idol' life, is held in the highest regards.

2Min Fics

Let the Day In; G how taemin breaks a day into hours, into minutes, into seconds. by rebreak

Little Children; G It's a world Taemin desperately wants to be a part of. by aescapes

Lost Boys; G Taemin had decided, Wendy Bird and wistful, that Neverland was pretty but not for him. by aescapes

Hide and Seek;G part human, part ghost, part wishful thinking by aescapes

So Highschool; PG sometimes what comes first matters. sometimes more than you think. by dailysky

All in the intentions; PG Minho is not sad, exactly. He's annoyed and frustrated and pissed at himself, and he also feels kind of stupid about fucking up his leg just before the comeback. It's like he's Jinki or something. So the whole thing kind of sucks, but whatever. He's dealing. He really doesn't need his entire group to go retarded on him in some misguided attempt to lift his spirits or whatever it is that they are trying to accomplish. He doesn't need it, but he has to admit all the attention is kind of fun. by naninande

Curse of the Curves; PG Taeyeon never understood why Minjung always wore clothes that made her look like a boy. And to be honest, sometimes Taeyeon even forgets that the older girl was even female, the way that she acts—Minjung's tall and has a quiet voice and is always steady, her presence a constant reassurance. Warning: Genderswitch by tuesdayhero

Eat Me Up; PG Porn shop. by cosipotente

Drop of a Ball; PG Taemin feels like setting the dorm on fire. by cosipotente

Turn the Lights Off; PG-13 Taemin stays up late into the night studying. Minho wonders why. by satinsleeves

Hurricane Streets; PG-13 Taemin is the definition of a summer fling, but Minho just can't seem to pull himself away. by tuesdayhero

That'll Be The Day; PG-13 Minho meets Taemin at the laundromat, a kid with dark bruises and bright smiles. by quellazaire

From One End to the Other; R There was some humor to be found in the latter. On a few occasions, they'd had infected running after their van, still wearing their "SAVE THE EARTH" t-shirts, or the more topic specific shirts that had come about before everything went down hill: "MOTHER NATURE SAYS" with the logo of a hand giving the bird beneath it. Manners — not so surprisingly — had been the first thing to bow out. by losingplaces

In This Sweet Surrender; R Taemin can't decide if he loves or hates his step brother. by takingflightt

Sexperiments #3; R Minho prides himself on taking everything in stride, even last Friday when Kibum turned into a girl and then back again the next day (although that didn't really change anything, not even Kibum's terrible taste in men), but he doesn't think his heart can take any more of these little surprises. by velvetgunfire Warning: Genderswitch

First Rule of Fight Club; R I felt like destroying something beautiful. by aescapes

Untitled; NC-17 A soft clearing of a throat interupts the tap-tap of his keyboard, and Minho looks up to see one of his tellers—Sanghee, her name was?—holding an apologetic hand to her mouth while glancing expectantly over the wall of his cubicle at him. He waits for her to speak. by velvetgunfire Warning: Genderswitch

Ponytail; NC-17 Taemin shook his head, ponytail bouncing and Minho’s eyes following the seductive movement. by lovestrucksmile

Frenzy; NC-17 This wasn't how it normally was. by goyangi

There's nothing more dangerous than a boy with charm; NC-17 The way things could have gone. by remixied This fic is locked, but I seriously reccommend friending the journal and reading it.

Smells like Taemin's Spirit; NC-17 "Why don't you tell me what you really do in here." Minho's investigating how Taemin spends his time locked in their manager's room. by cosipotente

taeminho ; 2min fan community
2min_aday ; get your daily dose of 2min.
Cute Fact: August 27th is observed as "2Min Day" as that was the day they "confessed" to each other on Shim Shim Ta Pa. Minho was asked which SHINee member he would date if they were a girl. He chose Taemin, and Taemin chose Minho. ♥
Cute Fact #2: ㅍ_ㅍ)ㅅ(^^;; is another way to write 2Min. (Korean Shawols have assigned each member an emoticon: ^▽^→Onew, ㅎㅅㅎ→Jonghyun, 'ㅂ'→Key, ㅍ_ㅍ→Minho, and ^^;;→Taemin.)
