      Whether or not you've ever seen their uber-passionate supporters, believe us when we say EXO fans are no joke. Affectionately known as EXO-L, this global fanbase helped the K-pop outfit's "Overdose" video become the most-watched K-pop video of last year and sent their EP of the same name into the Billboard 200—a rare chart to find any Korean music.

      But if music accomplishments don't make it clear, then take in this figure: According to a New York Magazine report on online fan fiction, the amount of EXO fan fic in 2014 now rivals Justin Bieber. With a 369 percent increase in the amount of year-over-year fan fiction written, the band's fandom is now on par with Bieber and One Direction. That's a lot of stories.

      With the release of EXO's new Exodus album—which looks poised to make a splash on the charts next week—Fuse pays tribute to some of the best fan fiction we've found on EXO. From imagining EXO as werewolves to being in an arranged marriage with a member, here's seven stories for EXO-L to feed upon.
