Svt reacting to their friend accidentally calling them "babe"
requested by anon: “Can I request a Seventeen reaction to their friend accidentally calling them “babe” or a similar cute pet name?? Thank you!!“
Admin note: I suck at everything but I hope you enjoy…? Sorry if this was late.
Seungcheol- Oh boy, get ready. You’re chilling and hanging out with Seungcheol like usual and you accidentally say, “Hey babe could you pass the chips?” And as soon as you say it he breaks into this big goofy grin. “It was an accident, stop smiling Seungcheol.” You laugh and throw a pillow at him. He’s probably internally screaming and dying at the same time because although you’re just friends he thinks it’s cute and he’ll cup his face in both of his hands and stare at you and jokingly tease you about it for the rest of the day.
“Could you call me babe? Just one more time? Ah- ack- stop throwing pillows I was joking!!!”
Jeonghan- Doesn’t even bat an eyelash when you accidentally call him “babe” while asking him where the remote for the tv is and doesn’t even look up until he notices you’re turning red and secretly banging your head against a wall. He’s super casual about the whole thing until he notices that you’re embarrassed and then he’s laughing at your reaction. He’ll probably tease you about it too since you reacted in such a big way. “Yoon Jeonghan, it was an accident. Stop it.” He’ll make little pouty faces and repeat the word “babe” over and over again.
“Wait if you called me babe, can I call you like sweetie, or sweetheart or better yet I’ll just call you babe too!!!”
Joshua- Joshua would probably act like everything was normal and not make it into a big deal because he doesn’t want you to feel uncomfortable especially since you’re friends. But you can tell he’s flustered and surprised and low key happy when you accidentally called him “babe” because he keeps smiling and trying to hide the fact he’s smiling behind his hand and if you ask him what he’s smiling about he tries to keep a straight face before he says “nothing” and quickly looks away smiling again. And you think that’s the last of it and he’s finally done and over it until
“Do you mind pausing the episode while I get soda, BABE?” “Joshua Hong you’re done for.” “Sorry I had to, don’t hate me haha.”
Junhui- He’d probably burst out into a fit of giggles and start rolling around on the ground after you accidentally called him “babe”, not because he thinks it’s super hilarious, he just finds it so cute and he’s a shy precious actual Prince of China. He would then pat your head and try to act real chill about the whole thing even though he keeps looking over at you and bursting into giggles. He won’t tease you about it though because he understands it was just an accident but it won’t stop him from trying to get you to call him by some pet name now.
“How about Junnie? Or can you just call me babe now? Or oppa? Ow-no need to hit my arm and resort to violence.”
Soonyoung- Probably already has a bunch of cute pet names for you and would be so surprised when you accidentally called him “babe” he’d practically leap out of his seat and bound towards you like a puppy and use all kinds of pet names and cute faces at you to try to get you to say it again or to brainstorm new names you can call him because it was too cute. Hoshi would just be happy to know you felt comfortable around him enough to call him a cute name because he loves being friends with you and this was just icing on the cake.
“I’ll gladly be called Kwon fire for you but how about we start with something like Kwonnie?”
Wonwoo- Probably the most flustered and cutest reaction ever when you accidentally slip up and call him “babe” like he’ll look up with wide eyes and a smile and if you say sorry for the accidental slip up, he’d just try to be chill and say you can call him whatever cute nickname you want because he doesn’t mind, and they’re cute. He’s also internally screaming a little but on the outside, he’ll just give you a small cute smile, since you two are friends and he’ll take a bit to calm down and appreciate the comfortable friendship the two of you have.
“Sweetheart it doesn’t matter, really, I don’t mind… Did I just call you sweetheart? Ah yes I did, heh well I’m ok with it if you are?”
Jihoon- Like Jeonghan he’d probably not think too much of it unless you made it into a big deal like “Oh are we using nicknames now?” without looking up from what he was doing. He’d probably give you a cheeky smile if you showed that you were slightly flustered, because he thought it was cute but he’d never admit it. He’d go around low key hinting at other cute pet names that make you jump a little every time. But otherwise, he’d give no indication that it bothered him in the slightest that you accidentally called him “babe”.
“Don’t friends call each other things like that all the time? I don’t see why it’s a big deal haha.”
Seokmin- The happy sunshine would explode as soon as you accidentally called him babe, with the brightest eye smile in the whole world on his face because omfg how cute were you when you called him “babe”. He wouldn’t think too much about it and just starting listing off cute nicknames he’s always wanted to use with friends or that he thinks would be cute if you called him them and he’d be practically jumping up and down and off the walls with excitement. “Seokmin it was an accident.” You’d laugh and his face would fall until you promised to use another name.
“I like being sunshine, I’m fine if you call me sunshine.”
Mingyu- He’d probably go real quiet and just smile and stare at you until you realized you accidentally called him babe. “Mingyu sorry haha it was an accident.” The giant puppy would probably tease you “you sure? Didn’t sound like an accident to me…” “Do you call all your friends ‘babe’?” He’d just laugh if you blushed and apologized again but he doesn’t mind and would probably start calling you random pet names he can think of that are cute. He’d probably use the baby talk voice too, just to make every nickname sound extra cute.
“Sweetie, baby, yah… y/n which name sounded cuter, I’ll use only the cutest.”
Minghao- Minghao wouldn’t think too much about it either except when he sees your reaction. At first he’s confused on what exactly you did, but then he’s like “Ah you mean the nickname? I don’t care babe you can call me whatever nicknames, we’re friends.” And he’ll even suggest some that he’s liked and it’ll be like you two have been using pet names since you first became friends. He’s kind of secretly happy to be able to call you cute nicknames other people don’t because to him, it makes your friendship more personal and special and he adores it.
“Yah, you can’t let other people call you that, that’s specifically reserved for me, that’s my favorite nickname for you.”
Seungkwan- Seungkwan would think it’s the cutest thing in the world like “yes that’s my friend oh my god I care about them so so much my heart is going to burst”. You may accidentally have called him babe, but now he’s going to act like one too, putting his arm around your shoulder and calling you all the cute pet nicknames he can think of and smiling and laughing like crazy every time he uses a new one. And if anyone else dares uses a nickname with you it better not be one he uses or he’s going to be hella territorial and give you five more names just for him to use.
“Babe, sweetie, honey, boo, my boo… BOO SEUNGKWAN THATS ME.”
Hansol- After accidentally calling him “babe”, he’d break into the biggest cutest smile he can, and ask you to repeat yourself as if he hadn’t heard you the first time. “What did you say?” “Could you repeat what you just said?” “Specifically that last part, did I hear you correctly?” After he made you repeat it like ten times, he’ll just sit there smiling at you and sighing. “I’d never have expected this from you y/n.” He’d playfully tease before getting a pillow thrown at him by you of course. He’ll probably be just generally flustered and smiley because you’re such a cute friend.
“Whether you think you’re cute or not, I’m here to tell you, you’re cute and no you can’t fight me on this.”
Chan- The maknae would turn a bright shade of pink and be thinking to himself, “Omo did she just call me babe, agh my friend is too adorable ottake…” He wouldn’t make it too big of a deal either, like Joshua, he’d rather you just be comfortable with whatever, but on the inside he’s screaming because wow what did he do to get such a cute friend and can he convince you to call him babe or sweetheart or something else again. He’d want to stay away from “baby” because he’s no one’s baby now and he’d much rather come up with a more meaningful nickname for you to reflect your friendship.
“How about ‘mochi’ because when we went to buy ramen, you made me pay for the mochi desserts too and they’re our favorite to get whenever we hang out?”
