summary: the weirdest thing happens between you and the famous basketball captain at your school, lai guanlin. it was something that you both feared, but it ended up happening; a body swap.

halloween aus: [bts; park jimin WILL BE LINKED WHEN I POST IT TOMORROW]
the basketball coach whistles as guanlin runs his hand through his hair, then announcing that the after school practice was over. “remember- that match is on friday. our last practice will be on wednesday. does everyone know their positions?”
“yes!” everyone nods. the basketball coach then tells the boys that they can go to the changing rooms. guanlin has a small talk with seonho, who was one of his best friends and his teammate, about the match, but seonho just tells guanlin that he’ll do a great job, since guanlin is center anyways.
guanlin changes into his uniform then says goodbye to the rest of his teammates, before running to the library. suddenly, he feels a head hit against his back. he turns around and slightly opens his mouth, gasping at the girl who was holding her head.
“shoot- i’m sorry,” guanlin mutters, panicking. this was the first time a girl has smashed their head on his back. he immediately felt bad and made sure she wasn’t injured.
“i-it’s okay..” the girl mutters, “o-oof!”
you fall on guanlin, sort of like a domino effect, and now you’re both on the floor, looking extremely awkward if anyone was to walk by. your head was spinning, damn, he really has such a rock hard back.
“oh my- i didn’t mean to!” you exclaim, quickly getting up and adjusting your dusty, black skirt. you placed your hand out as guanlin shakes his head, taking your hand. he does the same and straightens out his white polo.
“are you okay?” you panic. and then, you realise:
you’ve fallen on the popular basketball captain: lai guanlin.
luckily, his fangirls weren’t really around your area at this time, otherwise you would’ve been chased down by them already.
“oh my god. lai guanlin, i’m so so so sorry.” you repeatedly said, your heart was beating extremely fast.
calm, guanlin laughs at how flustered you were, “it’s okay, don’t worry. i’m fine. how about you? i’m sure you’re definitely more hurt than me.”
he placed his hands on your head to check if there was a bruise or some blood. you were a bit embarrassed because you were also sweating ever so slightly, your parents would kill you if they found you this close to a boy.
“i’m okay.. thanks..” you shyly mutter, picking up your books. “i-i uh.. better go. thanks guanlin.”
“wait- what’s your name?” you turned around as he gave you his gummy smile that many girls would die for. you felt a bit honoured, but you barely even knew the guy.
“y/n. it’s y/n. right. yep. it’s me,” you facepalmed mentally at how gibberish everything sounded.
“you don’t need to be flustered,” guanlin chuckles. how was he being so smooth?
“i’m a normal person, i promise.” you nod slowly as guanlin gave you a smile.
you change into a comfy sweater and a pair of your favourite pyjama pants and lie on your bed, scrolling through your phone.
10:22PM - unknown:
I’m hoping this is Y/N, but it’s me, Guanlin :)
10:23PM - Y/N:
oh hi guanlin, it is y/n :) how did you get my number?
10:23PM - Guanlin:
You dropped a piece of paper and it ended up having your number lol
10:24PM - Y/N:
ahh okay.. i’m still sorry about earlier >_< embarrassing
10:24PM - Guanlin:
It’s fine, don’t worry :) Are you okay though? It was technically my fault ;-;
10:25PM - Y/N:
i’m okay, but don’t blame yourself haha, it was mine bc i ran into you ^_^
10:25PM - Guanlin:
Well, I guess to make it more fair it’s both of ours heh
10:25PM - Y/N:
i guess so ;-; don’t you have basketball tomorrow morning? you should sleep
10:26PM - Guanlin:
Oh, yeah I do. Don’t worry though, I end up sleeping at midnight :)
10:26PM - Y/N:
yah, that’s not good for you! you should get more sleep especially since you’re a basketballer.
10:27PM - Guanlin:
It’s nothing, what time do you sleep then?
10:27PM - Y/N:
10:27PM - Guanlin:
Tsk tsk- you’re the one here who needs more sleep ^__^
and you ended up talking for half an hour, getting to know each other. you’ve definitely learned that guanlin loves chicken, and was a lot more taller than you thought (you’re literally up to his chest, you underestimated how tall he was) and he said that he was taller than some of his hyungs on his basketball team.
you woke up, smelling men’s cologne. you shifted around in your blankets, thinking it was probably from outside since you left your window open. suddenly, you shot up.
“what the,” you mutter. god, you sounded even manlier.
you look around the room: it was filled with basketballs, basketball trophies, many varsity jackets and basketball vests that were framed. you furrowed your eyebrows, looking into a mirror.
guanlin opens his eyes at the bright sunlight, groaning, moving around his bed, he thought. he feels a plushie against his foot. standing up, the room he’s in is totally different.
what the? he thought.
he runs his (well, actually, your) fingers against his hair, then looking into a mirror.
“what am i doing here?!”
it was an issue. you and guanlin both put the pieces together and realised you have switched bodies. he was you, and you were him. you both scratched your heads, not knowing what to do. what freaked guanlin out the most was he could easily find your underwear, and what you were concerned about was his phone passcode. you panicked. you prayed that he didn’t have any basketball practices.
“what would she wear on a school day?” guanlin raised his eyebrows as he looked through your closet. it was nothing too special, some skirts and dresses in between, jackets, leggings, skinny jeans, it was simple colours but there were some pastels in between the black, white, grey and brown.
forgetting that your school had uniform, he laughed at himself, picking out the polo, skirt and cardigan. when he took a shower, he found it a bit awkward stripping as he was in a women’s body.
you ruffled the hair of guanlin’s, not knowing what to do. shower? eat? get changed? weirdly, you wanted to know what he does in the morning. would it just be weird if you just sprayed yourself, well, guanlin, in cologne instead of showering?
shrugging your shoulders and muttering to yourself, you decided to shower. it was so different than your shower at home, definitely more spacious, but you probably would be lying to yourself that you weren’t really reading off the shower products and assuming what it was.
“y/n!” guanlin shouts (from your body). you laughed when you see how he presented you. somehow, he managed to wrinkle the polo shirt and make the skirt look slightly shorter and found your middle parting in your hair. you walked over to guanlin (you).
“wouldn’t it be guanlin?” you answered his question.
when you heard yourself laugh, you were a bit shocked, you were a lot more high-pitched than you thought.
“r-right,” guanlin says. “oh- you better give me my phone back. i have yours.” he handed your rose gold phone and you sighed, thanking god in your mind.
“wait.” you said, “it would look too weird if i have the rose colour? i mean- i’m literally in your body.”
“oh, shoot.” guanlin replies, scratching the back of well, your neck. “okay, you have to act manly in class, by the way, there are like, these three girls who won’t stop bugging me and you are going to deal with them. and- at lunch, i might as well stay by you.”
“god.. how did we even end up like this?”
once you see you, you quickly run with the incredible long legs you seem to have and try not to trip or shout ‘guanlin’, otherwise you were sure that after this people would look at guanlin in the hallways weirdly.
it was such a weird day. before you went to the men’s toilet, you had to make sure you didn’t accidentally walk into the women’s one. you didn’t want to ruin guanlin’s reputation: a smart kid, popular, captain of the basketball team, and you tried your best to not act as stupid and clumsy. it was also, extremely awkward in the men’s bathroom. you really couldn’t believe your eyes.
on the other hand, guanlin didn’t seem as panicky as you were if he was honest. yes, bathroom struggles and acting like a girl, including the underwear situation, but for some reason, he was too quiet to admit that he was okay with it.
you both ate lunch together and talked about what happened, until guanlin realised:
“y/n, i have basketball practice after school,” he says.
“no. you don’t.” you widened your eyes, “i don’t know about basketball! and not to mention your friends.. i’m gonna embarrass you,”
“fine- you go and tell coach that i can’t make it. but if this continues and i end up having 75% attendance.. i’m kicked out.” guanlin explains, finishing off with a sigh.
you nodded, “okay- just today. but i am praying to god being you is over..”
“tiring, huh?” he winked and you felt weird watching yourself wink. you ended up chucking anyways.
“let’s just hope we’ll be back tomorrow soon..” you sighed as guanlin agreed.
*yikes i never end it like this bUT jimin’s will be up toMORROW !! i also planned to end it kinda like this tho???????*
