It’s been almost a year since I read The Maze Runner series. While I found the books a fun diversion for a tediously long layover, there were a few things about the story’s basic premise that bugged me enough that I never considered myself in the fandom. I did, however, consider myself in the Minho fandom. Minho was by far my favorite character in the books and I was also excited and pleased to find a series where an Asian character got to be one of the protagonists and have a badass leadership role. I found his and Thomas’s relationship especially compelling, so it was only a matter of time before I sought out fanfiction pairing them up.
My younger brother has just picked up the series, and talking to him about it has rekindled my interest—if not in the books, in my precious cinnamon roll Minho. I went deep-diving into my AO3 history to find my favorite among all the Thominho fanfic I read back in October and bring it to you.
