but the poles are just like: the important thing here is this train signal

Smooth Criminal ✘ Sebastian Smythe Imagine ✘

✘ A/N: Here I’m! Guys, you won’t believe. I passed by a break up, pool party and exams lately, puft. I’m fine sz

For real, I have a weak spot for Sebtana, I love it so fucking much, sexual tension while they sang Smooth Criminal was like WOW. 

I know it’s a lesbian and a gay, it’s my only crackship :’) At laest my others ships on Glee happened o/

(and nop, just bc I ship it I’m homophobic like some people think)

ANYWAY, I really like that scene and this one was kind hard to me to write, but I hope you like it!

~There’s too much of the show, so I’d say it’s a free adaptation?

@lyss-91, thank you for beta!




✘ Request: Could you do a Sebastian Smythe imagine where instead of Santana and Sebastian singing Smooth Criminal it’s the reader and Sebastian and they kinda have a thing for each other and instead of her getting slushied at the end he kisses her. By the way, love your writing!

Your high heels in contact with the ground made some clicks, the repetitive melody of your footsteps and the shadowed silhouette, which could be seen from inside the room, were the only signs that you were coming. 

‘’Hey, Andrew McCarthy. Don’t now if you heard, but Blaine may lose an eye. The same Blaine who was just besties with most of you not four months ago.’’ You shot before all the Warblers entered the room, staring at Sebastian. 

 ‘’Wait, are you serious? Is he gonna be okay?’’ Trent asked, catching your attention for a few seconds.  

‘’Well, sure, if he doesn’t care about seeing in three dimensions.’’ You answered ironically and crossed your arms, it was for Santana to be here, not you. But she had an important training of the Cheerios marked on last minute, and couldn’t miss.  

Soon, the Latina explained the plan and you agreed, even though you didn’t have much choice when it came about Santana, and if it were to be honest, she also gave you insult tips and said what song you should sing.  

And, of course, forced you to wear a hat and her clothes. You really did feel like you were in an 80s movie. 

Well, anything to help long-time friend.  

‘’Trent, I got this. Bummer about Blaine, he was pretty. He shouldn’t have gotten in the way, though. That slushy was meant for Kurt.’’ Sebastian said impassively, as if the pain he had caused in Blaine was only a side effect, something common like buying pizza at a pizzeria. You wanted to beat yourself for having a thing for such a mean person.  

‘’You may look like the villian out of a cheesy ‘80s high school movie, but you should know that I am fully prepared to go all Danny LaRusso on your ass. Admit you put something in that slushy. What was it, huh? Glass? Asphalt?’’ You asked, trying to stay focused. You could not control what came from your heart or your instincts, but you could control your body. 

‘’Red dye number six.’’ Sebastian said simply, his hands clasped behind his own body.  

‘’You’re a liar.’’ You accused him, the words coming out of your mouth like snake venom.  

‘’She questioned my honor.’’ His tone was ironic again, and you really wanted to kick his pretty stupid ass for that. He looked at the Warblers smiling and rested his gaze on you. ‘’I demand satisfation in Warbler tradition.’’ Sebastian approached you and you held your breath. He had hurt Blaine and you had to fulfill Santana’s plan, focus!  

‘’You want to have a duel?’’ You also approached him in order to intimidate him. Two could play this game. You turned your head to two men sitting in the yellow chairs. ‘’Cello guys, can you hang back for a second? I’m gonna need you for this one.’’  

‘’Everyone else clear out. I don’t  want you to see me make a girl cry.’’ The leader of the Warblers asked, maintained his cocky posture and his natural sarcasm.  

‘’Let’s just keep this on point.’’ you nodded and smiled wryly, tired of little games.  

The cellists began to play their respective instruments, you walked away from Sebastian and sat in one of the chairs comfortably, crossing your arms and legs right away. You moved your head slightly to the side, a shade of defiant smile on your lips, as a signal for the him to begin.  

Sebastian paced between the chairs, occasionally putting his hands on them as the instrument players dueled a battle of intense looks and precisely fast touches.

Uh, as he came into the window

It was the sound of a crescendo, uh!

Meanwhile the Warbler sang, he didn’t take his eyes off you, going in your direction. You, of course, wouldn’t not look back.

He came into her apartment

Sebastian moved closer to the chair where you were, leaning over and touching it.

He left the bloodstains on the carpet, uh!

As he sang the verse, you watched when Sebastian took his touch off the chair to your body, running his hand a little down your arm and shoulders gently, something you never imagined he could be. That simple touch made your heart race and your hands sweat, damn body.

In the second Sebastian finished uh, you turned your head quickly to follow where he was going, his mouth half open with the simple act that had just happened, the effect it had on himself.

She ran underneath the table

He had his back to you, trying to catch his breath. After all, that was a difficult song to sing fast, and the overwhelming feel of touching you does not help, at all.

He could see she was unable

Sebastian quickly turned with force, returning with his fearless stance, letting the music take care of footsteps.

So she ran into the bedroom

He gave a quick, provocative smile to you, which you responded by tilting your head to the side and rising from chair.

She was struck downIt was her doom

Sebastian opened his arms, as if exclaiming an event, but his eyes never lost sight of you.

Annie are you OK?

He turned his head when followed in his footsteps as a leopard chases its prey, his emerald green eyes darkening while the intensity of his gaze on you, like did his smile and the challenge itself.

So, Annie are you OK?

You continued the singing of the chorus, leaning on the chair of a cellists players and running your hands over it, going to Sebastian, all while you and he held a war of looks, smirks were a part of their expression.

Are you OK, Annie?

You got rid of the chair and your body walked to Sebastian and his did the same for him, you were like a positive and negative magnet: attracting to your opposing poles, to your difference which completed everything that was missing.

Annie are you OK?

So, Annie are you OK?

You and Sebastian came as close as two humans could approach without touching each other. And then turned 180 degrees, continuing to look at each other, as if you two were in a parallel world, completely different from the earth planet, perhaps even in another solar system where only you and he were living creatures and so they feared to abandon each other’s image.

Are you OK, Annie?

Annie are you OK?

After the spin, both of you started to walk backwards, moving away from each other. Even that you two preferred the way it used to, you had to admit in the deep places of your mind that this was even fun; Fleeing and coming back, felt like an addiction.

So, Annie are you OK?

Are you OK, Annie?

Sebastian and you stepped into the middle of the chairs again, heading toward each other, as if the distance to be beat was to offer a valuable prize.

Until you were so close that in just a half step your lips could meet, but they did not. This fact only gave more air to your lungs and made you sing with the greatest determination ever seen in that room.

Annie are you OK?

So, Annie are you OK?

You pulled your tie violently, but not hurting, and you took a turn, bringing your hand up his arm in the process. Adrenaline was palpable in the room.

Are you OK, Annie?

Annie are you OK?

Will you tell us that you’re OK

You walked back and Sebastian followed you, like you both were playing tag.


There’s a sign in the window

Again, you were so close you could feel each other’s breath as the song unfolded from their tongues to the outside world. Sebastian let his gaze travel all over your body, checking you out.

That he struck you - A crescendo Annie

You shoved Sebastian’s shoulder when you realized what he was doing, resisting the desire to do the same.

He came into your apartmentHe left the bloodstains on the carpet

Once more approcheing, eyes (Y/E/C) and gree united.


Then you ran into the bedroom

You were struck down

It was your doom

Annie are you OK?

So, Annie are you OK?

It was he’s turn to walk away from you and you follow him. And so it went on.

Are you OK Annie?

Smythe stopped and looked at you, waiting for you to reach him.

Annie, are you OK?

You, involuntarily, threw a provocative glance at Sebastian and turned away from him.

So, Annie are you OK?

He looked at your butt, checking you out again. Human instincts sucked.

Are you OK Annie?

You turned your face to Sebastian, the moment he looked at your face: symmetrically.

Are you OK Annie?

You moved away again, waiting for Sebastian to follow you, you returned to your home position and found himself next to you, singing aggressively.

You’ve been hit by

You leaned toward him, showing 0 percent fear.

You’ve been struck by

A Smooth Criminal

You two walked away again, following opposite paths between the chairs. You looked at the floor for a few seconds as your fingers touched the wood of a chair, but Sebastian was just looking at you. They both ran for a while, touching distinct chairs, until you stepped away from the object.

I don’t know!

Annie are you OK, Will you tell us, that you’re OK

There’s a sign in the window

Sebastian began to chase you at varying strides, the fight between the instruments was obvious and beautiful.

I don’t know!

That he struck you - A crescendo Annie

I don’t know!

He came into your apartment

I don’t know!

Left bloodstains on the carpet

The impromptu cinematographic chase went on, you slammed your chest without strength and raised your voice.

I don’t know why, baby!

Then you ran into the bedroom

I don’t know!

You were struck downIt was your doom - Annie!

Annie are you OK?

Stirring the bare part of the hat of your hair, you tried to steady your own quick steps without falling or losing tone.

Dang, gone it - Baby!

Will you tell us, that you’re OK

Dang, gone it - Baby!

There’s a sign in the window

Dang, gone it - baby!

That he struck you - A crescendo Annie

You bowed again, in order that your tone might reach even more Sebastian like the Black Canary with her cry.

Hoo! Hoo!

He turned a chair, pulling it out of his way to take you.

He came into your apartment

Dang, gone it!

Sebastian walked to one side and you went the other way, in a circle. What was left between you was, basically, a small circle made up of a few chairs and cellos.

Left bloodstains on the carpet, uh!

Hoo! Hoo! Hoo!

Then you ran into the bedroom

Dang gone it!

You were struck down

Sebastian approached and made a gun signal with his hand, but you did not panic or bowed your head in front said: you have moved forward.

It was your doom - Annie!

The leader of the Warblers let his eyes travel all over your body one last time until he fell on your face, never losing his rhythm.

You’ve been hit by

War of looks had reached a new proportion, his height making him look down and yours you face up, but now it was the end: the great finder of the winner.

You’ve been struck by

Distance between two of you was dangerously small.

A Smooth Criminal

For the first time in the history of choiral duels, there was no winner.


Just like it was a draw the war your tongue was waging with Sebastian’s, an aggressive kiss started by the boy. He had something for you and you had something for him, it was obvious. And with a song like that and such a performance, the result couldn’t be any different. As soon as the last syllable was sung, Sebastian kissed you and reciprocated.

The noise of the door opened at the end of the cellos, the Warbles released nothing but their breaths: their leader was voraciously kissing the girl he would make cry.

Sebastian’s hands tightened on your hip and brought you closer, wanting to enjoy every bit of that kiss distressed by the wait, and you pulled closer to the nape of the neck, caressing a small part of his hair.

None of you had felt that way when you kissed someone: fully alive. It was as if every atom of you had resolved to give a ‘hello, I’m alive and here’, and it felt so good.

You took your lips from his for air, but you could’t let Sebastian out of your arms, okay, he didn’t seem to mind either.

Meanwhile, Trent threw slushy into the trash, his leader would probably not need it, anyway.

episode 9, clip 3 ☽ dilemma

wednesday, 22:21

The light is dying over the top of their building. Sana dribbles up to the hoop and sinks a layup, catching the rebound and jogging back up the court. She shoots a three and it flies through the hoop neatly, barely even grazing the net. It’s an easy pattern to get lost in.

Mamma keeps trying to corner her into a conversation, and the girls have taken to texting on an hourly rotation to see if she’s decided yet. Sana dribbles the basketball, and is steadfastly puzzled about how anyone makes decisions once they start thinking about things. She can’t remember when the world stopped fitting into her nice, black and white binary of good and evil, and if she’s being honest with herself, she can’t fucking stand it. She likes clearly drawn lines and boundaries, easy markers of what to do and what not to do.

Sana shoots, and the ball bounces off the rim and into the bushes along the side of the court. She huffs, and puts her hands on her hips, staring at the ball like it has committed a personal offense to her. Irrationally, she thinks about all the other reasons that she could have missed, like the ball being flat, or the non-existent wind speed, and decidedly not about how it’s her own lack of consistency at the heart of the problem.

“Can I join you?”

Undercover - A short Reylo Story

So @marisaa8 requested on the 22nd of Jan this year that I write something to Khelani’s ‘Undercover’

It took a while, but I finally got there! All I wanted was to create a pole routine to this, not write a story. That’s a very hard thing to get past!

And I know you wanted spies, and I could totally see it, but my fingers wouldn’t take me that way. So instead you get this. I hope it’s okay.

Without any further ado, finally here it is:

 @marisaa8​, this is for you!

‘It’s done, right?’ Their faces were anxious, pulled tight with well-meaning concern.

‘Yes.’ Was all Rey said, arms crossed over her chest. She realised it was a defensive stance and tried to make it seem as casual as possible, relaxing the tension in her face and shoulders and popping her hip to the side.

'Thank goodness,’ Finn slumped into her, arm slung over her shoulder as he forced her to take his weight. 'I was so worried about you, Peanut. I know you’re a grown woman and all, but I was really worried.’ Poe was nodding slowly, wrapping a piece of string around his fingers to keep his hands busy.

A cool breeze tugged at them, nipping at exposed flesh, reminding them all that autumn had finally arrived as they stood in the sunshine, enjoying their afternoon in the park.

Swapverse Steven Universe

Laying down my claim here for an AU idea I had.

Jasper, Peridot and Lapis Lazuli being the Crystal Gems, Steven still being half human, with some differences.

The fourth, Steven’s mom, would be a new Gem, or one that will be shown later in the show, even possibly that Yellow Diamond that we hear about,  but the idea is that what if the Crystal Gems didn’t want to be on Earth? What if they weren’t choosing to stay, but somehow prevented from leaving?
Lapis, Jasper and Peridot + Stevens AU Mom/Yellow Diamond, they didn’t want to stay on Earth. They were sent to investigate a different planet, and there was a malfunction that crashed their ship into Earth. This means that the Gems of their world have no idea that Earth even existed, and there are no monsters sent to Earth, and instead of being focused on both action and slice of life, it’s mostly slice of life.

They eventually came to some small measure of acceptance of their fate, but they really don’t like Earth, and no gem monsters are involved. They aren’t involved in the town, partly because they tend to scare the other Beach City citizens, and partly because they don’t particularly like humans.
Yellow Diamond accepted Earth, eventually, and Steven happened similarly to in canon. Steven in this world isn’t learning about his Gem powers to join them, while he does learn about his Gem powers, he is the one teaching the Gems in his own Steven-y way. He wants to show the Gems how to live on Earth and be happy. So there’s not much changed with Steven himself, although different, it’s more important to focus on the Gems. Eventually some of the stuff will show up (and we’ll explain this down below.)

The temple is something that they made, and is less of a temple and more of a high tech base designed by Peridot, built by Jasper, and decorated by Lapis. It’s a base full of the Gem’s best technology, and they’re trying to figure out how to send out a signal back to the homeworld. Steven’s home was made by Peridot, which means that it’s much more basic and monotone and not very homey. But Steven is always bringing stuff in to make it nicer. Peridot understands that he needs a bathroom and a bed, a fridge and a water source, but the rest is a basic cube that is standard issue for the Gem spaceships

Jasper fills Amethyst’s role, Peridot is Pearl, and Lapis fills a new role, similar to Garnet in a way, but different. In fact, the whole thing is shuffled, and you can find parallels scattered between all the episodes and characters. Some of the more villainous traits are either toned down or put into the far past, back when they first landed  Breaking down the new character versions of this AU:

Lapis (Garnet)

  • Lapis is very much the heart of the Gems, and she’s the one with the most connection with Steven and humans, while the other Gems treat Steven like a burden or an annoyance, she finds him to be a good friend.
  • She’s got a strong memory and knows a lot about the past, rather than future vision. She doesn’t have the ability to predict things, but she knows almost everything about Gem history.
  •  This trait comes from the fact that she was made by the homeworld Gems in the form of a mirror of knowledge, that Peridot and Jasper took along with them to Earth.
  • The crash broke her gem free from the mirror and she was formed, meaning that she’s younger than the other gems.
  • This makes her the ‘weakest’ Gem of the group, and also the lowest on the totem pole. She isn’t weak, but she’s inexperienced, and Peridot & Jasper treat her more like a child or nuisance, respectively.
  • That’s is the basis for this universe’s ‘On The Run’, mixed with ‘Ocean Gem/Mirror Gem’. During the events, Lapis gets fed up with being treated as the lowest Gem, and decides to run away when Steven starts reading a series about castaways, instead of hobos train hopping. They build a boat and sail off into the sea, She takes him to the wreckage of their ship and shows Steven her old mirror/prison. Since Jasper and Peridot do care about them, loathe as they are to admit it, they find them and try to cheer up Lapis in their own way. Peridot offers to give her more responsibility on their temple,and promises to give her ideas more credit and treat her as an equal. She says it in a cold way, but it’s understood what she meant. Jasper is much more tsundere (not romantically, just as a term) about her apology, but she says she’ll treat her better too. She does, although she’s still Jasper.
  • Lapis is a good artist and likes everything to be decorated and properly beautiful. The temple’s bare workings was too stiff for her, and she began prettying the place up, the other two concede a little
  • Lapis is the one most in tune with the humans, and she loves the beauty of the sea. Her room (like all their rooms) is a holodeck, but hers is a beachside house, with a huge ocean full of little fish and beachy goodness, and she swims in the ocean all the time

Peridot (Pearl)

  • Peridot is not very social, even by the standards of the other Gems. She doesn’t enjoy their company as much as she does her computers and blueprints.
  • There is a running gag about how almost every thing she has is broken by the other Gems, accidentally or not. Any activity that involves her stuff tends to end with it shattered. Jasper and Steven playing soccer? She’s working on her computer outside, and the soccer ball shatters it.
  • She’s the one focused on getting home, even though it’s been at least a thousand years since they landed, she’s still trying.
  • She views both of her companions in a less than flattering light. She thinks Jasper is a muscle headed impulsive oaf who keeps breaking her stuff.(Although that is kind of accurate), She feel like she has to talk to Lapis in either a cold commanding tone (asking for information) or as a very simple child who needs things explained to her. She views Steven in a similar way, but there’s a little bit of protective streak in her, which grows throughout the series. She’s still patronizing, but she does care about Steven.
  • She has the most trouble interacting with the citizens of Beach City, finding them primitive and disgusting (not to mention breaking her stuff), She is not on board with the idea of accepting Earth as a home that she might have to live with.
  • She has little knowledge about how to raise Steven, although she’s the one who knows the most about Gem care. She tries to raise Steven strictly as a Gem, but it’s not working as well as she hoped.
  • She’s always building little robots of all kinds, which are the source of some of the only antagonists in terms of fight scenes. They’re not often destructive, but Beach City is full of little robotic animals that they have grown to deal with. The little marbles are actually helpful to the town, although Peridot doesn’t care about them.
  • Peridot has a huge obsession with keeping everything up to regulation, to the point that the temple is built exactly to code with homeworld houses, the rooms are all the basic sets, and the rooms where Lapis and Jasper sleep in are holodecks, because she refused to give them control over an actual room to do as they wish.
  • She is still sending and storing daily log reports for the time when they’ll be rescued, and has never missed a single day. This means that the reports mostly blend together as they don’t make much progress.

Jasper (Amethyst)

  • Jasper was created in a Kindergarten, but it was on the homeworld. She was raised there, and therefore doesn’t have any hang ups about it to make ‘On The Run’ happen to her.
  • Jasper finds humans weak and pathetic, but she doesn’t care about them enough to do anything.
  • She’s extremely pent up with the peace at Earth, which is why she joins the wrestling game, instead of being the Purple Puma, she’s the Tiger Terror, and her wrestling is much more extreme than Amethyst was. Steven doesn’t want to join in for that episode, instead, he tries to find a better outlet for her anger.
  • Steven eventually figures out how she can express her violent tendencies in a more healthy way, and shows her how to play human sports. She doesn’t like it as much as beating the crap out of things, but she has to admit that it’s pretty fun
  • She’s the one who breaks all the arcade machines in Arcade Mania, trying to play the game breaks them, and when she loses, she breaks them anyway.
  • She’s gets obsessed with Meat Beat Mania not because she’s hypnotized. but because she fails at the game enough times to make her NEED to finish it, hyper focused on it and insisting on beating it. Steven manages to beat her, and that snaps her out of it.
  • Jasper is the one showing Steven how to use swords during ‘Steven The Sword Fighter’, although she’s not the one who gets stabbed. Steven’s messing up ends up sending the sword spinning, stabbing Lapis in her Gem. This combines the episode with ‘An Indirect Kiss‘ and a bit of ‘Ocean Gem’, where they find out Steven has healing powers, not the fountain at all.
  • She’s eventually rather enthusiastic about showing Steven how to kick ass, although Steven isn’t super sold about it.
  • Malachite is a much less unstable fusion in this universe, more resembling Sugilite than the monstrosity of her canon form. The events of ‘Coach Steven’ take place with Malachite, meaning Malachite is less of a creepy non consensual thing, it’s just a dangerously big and dangerously had to transform out of thing, like Sugilite.

Now, as I said, there is the canon Gems in this universe, and a version of Jailbreak happens. See, the swap is two ways. Amethyst is still Jasper, but Pearl is Lapis, because Pearl in canon has expressed a wish to go home. Garnet is Peridot, with the whole ‘commanding the things’ thing she has going on, along with the fist theme.

By the end of the first season, Peridot has finished her signaling device, which does its job… but the results are similarly not good, like canon. The canon Gems are sent out to snuff out the failed Gems, who clearly need to be exterminated due to their uselessness. This is how they work in this universe:

Pearl (Lapis)

  • Pearl is the one who crashes into Earth, just like the Lapis, but the events of Space Race sends her back home. This doesn’t mean it’s not similarly dangerous. She has a different power, her spears are like magnets, pulling things up to them, and she can also toss them at specific areas to pull them closer, so she starts dismantling the entire town, planks and all for parts, instead of the ocean.
  • Steven helps her get home by helping her build it without destroying the town.
  • She finds that the homeworld Gems are not interested in having her back, Jailbreak happening to her mostly the same.
  • Opal in this universe is a twisted version more resembling Malachite, with malformed parts and such. Pearl drags them down into the earth, burying them in the sand, trapping them forever.

Amethyst (Jasper)

  • Amethyst is still small like she is normally, but she has a huge Napoleon complex. She used to have a fusion partner, but she was long gone, and now she insists that she doesn’t need fusioning anymore.
  • Even though she’s not very big, he is a huge powerhouse, more than Jasper is.
  • Her downfall is that she is extremely impulsive and gets much more angry while fighting, leading to a breakdown where she’s blindly fighting with huge power. Peridot is able to take her down, not because Peridot is a fusion, but by being smarter. It’s the first time Peridot honestly got into a fight, and also the first time Lapis is the leader, forced to pilot the ship, because Jasper has no idea how it works.
  • She has no self control, even less than either Amethysnt, and Jasper in canon. She yells and screams at the other Gems, barking out orders and punching and whipping things in her rage.

Garnet (Peridot)

  • Garnet is the one to first pick up the smaller signals that Peridot was sending.
  • She still has her future sight, which is how she found out, and her general feel is not someone who is monitoring everyone, but someone who is already all knowing.
  • Her attitude of monotone statements are much more menacing than Peridot’s angry screams, and she has way more power.
  • She’s the leader of the group, instead of Amethyst, but she still lets her ‘boss’ her around, because she doesn’t feel any sort of threat towards Amethyst.
  • When she escapes the ship, she is split into Ruby and Sapphire, both fall in separate pods.
  • Sapphire lands closest to Steven, and if/when she comes near, she’ll pretend to be a new Gem, trapped in the Gem’s ship just like them, but her part of the ship broke off during the descent, and she claims she’s, searching for Ruby, her lover (which is sort of true, at least the lover part)

And finally, have the new theme song, the first two lines and their name sung by the three Gems, and the rest sung by Steven
♫ “We are the Crystal Gems
We guess we’re here to stay
And if you think that’s bad
I’ll have to find a way~
To show you that this world’s one you can live in
Lapis, Peridot, Jasper, and Steven!” ♫

I’d like this to be a thing, please. Can this be a thing? Like, not as a stolen idea, but can this be my thing for the SU community?
