Yeah, after that YOI official art with the swimsuits, I’m shocked I haven’t seen a bunch of Baywatch AUs. Imma be real and say I’ve never watched Baywatch but here we go anyway!
–”No, I’m not drowning for YOU,” is a phrase said to both Phichit Chulanont and Michele Crispino on the daily. “Where is the hot Japanese lifeguard? I need to drown in his eyes.” Being Yuuri’s coworker is a thankless job, unless you consider constant viewing access to his six-pack a ‘thank you.’ Many on the Baywatch team do.
–Viktor Nikiforov, being a pale Russian and a movie star, doesn’t spend a lot of time on the public beach. He is dragged there one day by Christophe. Even though it’s Yuuri’s off day and he’s lying on the beach with his twentieth beer and a comforting Phichit, he still hops up and ‘rescues’ Viktor from the shallow water.
“Oh my god,” Viktor breathes, or at least thinks he does, because in actuality it just comes out as a long gay gasp. Yuuri pushes his wet hair back and smirks down at the man in his arms.
“Thought you were having some trouble,” he hiccups seductively.
“I’m in trouble now,” Viktor hyperventilates. From then on, they go to the beach every day. When a flustered Yuuri, upon his thirtieth day of ‘saving’ a drowning Viktor, asks if maybe he needs some swimming lessons… the rest is history.
–Despite giving Viktor swimming lessons every day, Yuuri still ends up talking to him during regular lifeguard working hours.
“Makkachin can’t swim,” Viktor bemoans. “I was so worried until you SAVED HER.” Yuuri’s seen the poodle doggy paddling happily around the shallows before. He will never tell Viktor this.
–”I’m going to join the Baywatch team!” Announces Sara Crispino. She pulls open a life jacket to reveal her bikini.
“Oh hell no,” says Michele Crispino. Unfortunately, he is not in charge of hiring.
“Nice to have you,” says Mila Babicheva. She spent her younger years training dolphins, and everything about her is gentle and yet exciting. Sara requests being on her guard stand immediately. They have a beach wedding the very next year.
–”Rescue yourself!” Yurio hollers.
“You can’t say that,” sighs the head lifeguard exasperatedly.
–Seung-Gil is the fiercest sea turtle activist Phichit has ever met. “I would die for the life of a single sea turtle,” he says, tone completely dispassionate.
“Uh,” says Phichit.“How about we just start a hashtag instead?” When it’s trending and Seung-Gil’s sea turtle foundation has received millions in donations, he stands at the foot of Phichit’s guard stand for thirty minutes. “Can I help you?” Phichit calls cheerily.
“Yes,” Seung-Gil says, “come kiss me.”
“You’re supposed to say you need mouth to mouth resuscitation,” Phichit complains. He climbs down anyway.
–Later, Viktor and Yuuri spend a lot of time walking along the beach at twilight, holding hands quietly and listening to the gulls.
“You saved me, you know,” Viktor tells him quietly, as the sun sinks into the waves. “I was drowning and lost and you saved me.” Mere months ago, Yuuri would have assumed Viktor just meant saving him from the water.
“That’s my job,” he replies instead, and pulls Viktor down to lie beneath him in the sand, kisses him. “I do love my job. But you saved me too.”
Shownu; By the moment you came out of the bathroom with a sheer over shirt, not really covering your red bikini, Shownu would be so stunned at the sight. He couldn’t believe that you have such wonderful body to begin with. Shownu would be at a loss for words when you flashed him a smile smile, twirling around in the process, only to give Shownu a good view of how proportionate your body was, especially with your assets. He’d be giddy about it to be honest, like he’d be praising you over and over and would actually be over-protective of you once the two of you are out to the beach or swimming pool. But then, when the two of you are just chillin’ around, he’d be looking at you with such loving gaze that you’d be blushing. He’d also blurt out compliments here and there, totally catching you off-guard, and that’s when the two of you are enjoying some watermelon, his face covered with watermelon juice.
“What do you think, oppa? *smiles, twirls around to flaunt your swimwear*”
“*chuckles*…. *finally able to think of words to say* You look beautiful, baby. *pulls you into a hug* Aigoo, my baby is so beautiful~”
“Hehehe, thanks oppa. Now, let’s go to the beach! *pulls Shownu towards the beach, only to be stopped by him*”
“Wait a minute… *wraps his tanktop around your waist and proudly smiles* There. Let’s go! *wraps his arm around you shoulder*”
Wonho; Wonho wouldn’t be able to stop himself from grinning widely to be honest. When you came back to the tent with your friend, he’d be speechless at the sight. He would be really surprised at how beautiful you looked to be honest, may it be in sweatshirts and pants or bikini, you were overall beautiful in his eyes. Wonho would act a little bit dramatic to be honest like the one in the gif before he pulls you into a hug like a little boy. He’d be body praising you to be honest, especially at how your assets bring out those curves. But when he notices the stares of the boys, he’d actually spread his arms and would totally cover you since it was only a sight for him to see but it might also be the other way around like he’d be flaunting you like a proud boyfriend, his chest out while his arms wrapped around your shoulder. Wonho would also be really caring. He’d apply some sunblock on you like he’d apply sunblock on you first before he applies some on himself.
“Baby, I’m wearing the bikini that you bought me. Look! *twirls around happily while smiling at Wonho’s reaction*”
“*acts dramatic* Oh my… how can a goddess smile at me? Omo, my heart can’t take at how beautiful my [y/n] is. *pinches the bridge of his nose before bursts out laughing, pulling you into a tight hug* Aigoo, my baby, how can you be so beautiful huh? Man, look at you! I’ve always known you were hiding something under those baggy shirts and sweatpants that you wear!”
“Whatever, babe. C’mon, let’s get into the water now!”
Minhyuk; Just imagine Minhyuk with big, googly eyes. He’d be all smiles as soon as he sees you with your baby blue bikini. When you show him every angle of the your body, twirling around to show him how cute you looked with a pair of bikini. Minhyuk would totally find you really cute but sexy at the same time. But when boys starts to stare at you, just imagine Minhyuk glaring at them while protectively wrapping his arms around you. And once they’re gone, he’d be back to praising at how beautiful you are and that he’d remind you of the time when you felt insecure which he would also quickly tell you that there was nothing for you to be insecure as you were as beautiful as your heart. You have a wonderful body and he loves it as much as he loves you for who you are. He’d seriously flaunt you to the boys, telling them that they don’t have a beautiful gf like you.
“Baby, listen, remember the time when you felt insecure of all those girls out there? Don’t be. You’re beautiful. You have a beautiful heart and a beautiful body and a beautiful everything. Don’t let them bring you down. I love the way how you look as much as I love you for who you are. You have a wonderful body baby and you’re one of a kind! *cups your cheeks with such bright smile* Now, c’mon and let’s go to the boys.”
“Alright… thanks babe.”
“No problem, sweetie~ *winks at you and sees the boys* Guys! Look at how beautiful my baby girl is! Too bad you guys don’t have a girl like mine… Should I set you guys up?!”
Kihyun; This boy would be so taken aback when he sees you for the first time in bikini. He’d be all smiles to be honest. He wouldn’t be able to suppress his feels and would literally be chuckling the whole time since he’s so giddy about the sight of you and your beautiful body. When you twirl around for him, he’d really find you so cute that he couldn’t keep his hands off of you. Kihyun would pull you into a hug, swaying the two of you while he plants kisses on top of your head. He’d pull away for a moment and would immediately pull out his camera, making you his model. And when you tell him that you’re not that confident with your body, he’d look at you with some look and would tell you that you’re utterly beautiful in his eyes and that you should be proud of that beautiful body of yours because you’re one of a kind. And of course, Kihyun would be over protective to the point the he’d let you wear his tank top to cover up when you feel uncomfortable with the stares of random strangers. And to be honest, he’d also be the type of person who’d post your picture with a speech underneath it.
“Oppa, I’m not that confident with my body though.. I think I’ll pass–”
“What are you talking about? You’re body’s gorgeous baby and let me tell you, you’re one of a kind and be proud of that body of yours! You have such wonderful proportions and you’re really beautiful in my eyes baby, really beautiful. C’mon, let’s take some photos to commemorate this day.”
“Thanks, babe, for making me feel better about my body. But before we take photos of me, let’s take a photo together. *pulls you towards him as he lets the other members take a photo of the two of you*”
Hyungwon; Chae Pepe will be unleashed. He’d be so meme by the minute he laid eyes on you in your bikini. He’d be so speechless that he’d be giggling for a straight five minutes. Once he’d finish giggling, he’d be complementing at how beautiful you are and how your assets are also gorgeous. He’d be so mesmerized at your beauty that he’d really ask the boys to take a photo of the two of you so that he’d make it his lock and home screen wallpaper. And he’d also take a couple of selfies with you before pulling you into the water. Once the two of you started to chill around in the pineapple float that you bought, he’d be really honest with you like he’d be complementing your body and you overall. That he’d reach to a point that he’d appreciate all of your style and would be like, you’re like a box filled with surprises and whatnot. Hyungwon wouldn’t actually like the attention that you’re getting from the boys to be honest that he’d be glaring at them until they look away.
“Hyungwonie~ how do I look? *twirls around with a gleeful squeal*”
“*giggling giggling giggling*….. *finally stops giggling* Baby, you look amazing! Damn, you really a beautiful body…. Yah, Changkyun-ah, take a photo of [y/n] and I for a second. *hands phone to Changkyun and pulls you closer to him with his arms on your waist*”
“Aigoo, don’t tell me you’re gonna make that as your lock screen and home screen wallpaper? *teasing*”
“I am! Daaamnn, Changkyun this one is such a wonderful shot! Nice one. Baby, do you want me to send you this photo? So that we can have matching wallpapers? *cute smile*”
Jooheon; Jooheon was laughing really loud until you came to the tent in a bikini, making Jooheon shut his mouth real fast. He’d be eyeing you up and down before he proceeds to giving you a knowing smile. When you asked him if you looked horrible, he’d be reassuring you right away that you look absolutely beautiful. Like legit beautiful. Too beautiful for him to be honest. He’d actually pull you into his lap and hug you tightly, with a big smile on his face. Jooheon would actually take all his time to appreciate you and your body. When the two of you are actually strolling down the beach, he’d let you wear his jacket to be honest, not only to protect you from those lustful stares but also from the sun since he doesn’t want his baby to have that sunburn. And when you’re out in the pool having fun with the boys, he’d actually watch you with so much admiration that he wouldn’t be able to take his eyes off of you. And when you’re back in the hotel with your sweatpants, he’d be chuckling at how you can still be beautiful with those clothes.
“Wear this jacket, babe. *helps you wear this beach zip jacket and smiles at how cute you looked with his jacket* Omo, baby, your bikini matches with my jacket!”
“You’re right! But, honey, wouldn’t it be too hot for you with just that tank top and beach shorts? *pouts*”
“Aigoo, don’t worry baby. It’s alright. C’mon and let’s go buys some ice cream from that stall over there. *points at a not really visible stall from afar*”
“Oki doki *links arms with Jooheon*”
I.M; Changkyun would be pretty calm about it tho. When you showed up with your red bikini, he’d be proudly smiling at you since he already knew that you have such wonderful body. He’d be wrapping his arm around your shoulder and would smugly smile at his hyungs like she’s mine sorry. But then when you’re starting to get a lot of attention from random strangers, he’d be a little bit whiney as makes you wear his tank top. Changkyun would also be the type of boyfriend who’d shower you a lot of love like when you’d suddenly feel insecure about your body after a couple of women passed by, he’d be like no, baby, you have an amazing body and you know what, you’re the only apple in my eyes. you’re beautiful, okay? and many more. Sometimes, you’d catch Changkyun staring at you with such loving gaze but then sometimes, you’d also receive sassy comments from him but in a good way. Sometimes, you’d also catch him taking a lot of candid photos of you.. .and even videos to be honest. When you’re gone for a while, he’d be staring at the photo’s he’d captured and would actually make a collage and make it like into some aesthetic or something.
“Oh my goodness, my beautiful queen has finally arrived with that beautiful body of hers! Flaunt it baby *winks at you before wrapping an arm around your shoulder*”
“Babe… I think this will be the first and last time that you’d see me wearing a bikini–”
“Ssshhhh, don’t say that *places a finger on your lips and then turns around to face his hyungs who are looking at him with a ‘._.’ look* Sorry, hyungs, [y/n]’s mine. But hey, guess what, we can try to hook you guys up you know *wink… minhyuk in the background: hey! that’s my job!!!*”
