Anonymous said: I cant get over g’s video for sid, suit and tie with a nice back drop talking like a video you would play at a dramatic surprise proposal that everyone was in on (g sent sid around on like a scavanger hunt and he got to the end and the video was playing) and like it ends with g saying ’ i love you so much turn around’ and g is there proposing wearing the suit
OMG, ok, ok. Proposal!AU time!
There’s a roaring in his head, echoed by the crowd inside the PPG Paints Arena, exploding into noise as Geno’s message ends.
Sidney knows, even before he turns around, that he’s going to see his idiot boyfriend down on one knee on the ice behind him. His crazy wonderful, idiot boyfriend whom Sidney loves more than words could possibly explain.
His breath hitches as he lies eyes on Geno’s beaming face, his lips stretched into the widest grin Sid has ever seen. He’s holding a ring up towards Sidney; it’s huge and garish and so Geno that Sidney can’t help the choked laugh that bubbles out of him.
He’s going to wear that ring with pride, isn’t he?
Geno’s mouth is moving, shaping out words that Sidney can’t hear over the thundering of the crowd they are roaring their approval so loudly. Sidney doesn’t need to hear the words to know what he’s saying though.
He nods wildly, holding out his left hand so Geno can remove his glove. Sid doesn’t actually say yes, but he doesn’t need to; the ring goes on smoothly, and Sid laughs again, because last week Tanger and Flower had brought him ring shopping for Vero—an anniversary, Flower had insisted, and then made Sidney try on rings too. To get his ring size, Sidney knows now.
Geno pulls him into a kiss, and impossibly the crowd gets even louder. They’re being mobbed by their teammates, beaming faces everywhere Sidney looks, so happy for them and—
Sidney would maybe have liked for this to be more private, for it to be just Sid and Geno. He looks up at Geno, at his fiancé, and swallows, awed, at the look of love and adoration on his face. For Sidney. Always, always, for Sidney.
—as far as proposals go, this one isn’t all that bad, Sidney decides.
He actually kinda loves it.
