Re: 21mm for people shots?

One of the lens I'm going to use on an upcoming trip is a 21mm (14mm APSC Fuji), so does that mean the lens can be used to take people shots without making them distorted or 'fatter' as long as the subjects are not near the lens or the edge of the frame?

Yes, but they will be very small in the photograph. Quit trying to resist The Force, just buy a longer lens.
