Summary: (Y/n) is the media manager for Manchester United. When the team wants to reach a wider audience, someone suggests doing a collab with some YouTubers.
A/N: I don’t think I’m going to turn this into a romantic thing. I just thought it would be nice to do a sort of banter-filled thing with all of my favorite boys! Let me know what you guys think!
Hello! My name is (y/n) (y/l/n). I am a part of the media team at Manchester United. My team and I are aware of your up and coming annual charity match in June. First and foremost, we would like to congratulate you on your accomplishments over the years. We were also wondering if you would like to do a collaboration with the squad. If you and your selected team for the charity match would like to do the collaboration, both your team and Manchester United would both be able to upload most footage taken. There are still terms and conditions that need to be set. If you are interested, please respond to this email as soon as possible and we will get back to you on the details. It would be great if you could include a roster of who is going to be on your team.
Sincerely, (Y/n) (y/l/n)
(Y/n) walked into the training room looking down at her camera, changing the settings. She looked around the facility seeing her media team film and take pictures of the boys training. Juan Mata smiled at her as she passed his treadmill. A white, inflatable inter tube-type circle attached to the treadmill hugged his waist and held him in place as he ran. “What have you been up to?” He asked as she smiled back.
“Business things. Making sure my team is doing their job. The usual.” She said taking a picture of Juan as he ran. “Nice one.” (Y/n) said looking at the picture.
“Thanks. Guess I’m just naturally photogenic!” He said slowing his pace to a jog.
“Not always! I have several of you that you would probably not like to see the light of day.” (Y/n) said laughing.
“Oh God.” Juan said. “I think I remember hearing Zlatan talk about a possible collaboration with some YouTubers soon?”
“Yeah. He’s right. The guy hasn’t responded yet. It’s The Sidemen if you were wondering. I mean it’s them and their team for a charity match,” Juan gave a confused look to (y/n) as he took a drink from his water bottle, “KSI and his friends. Anyway. I’ll let you get back to training. I have to talk to Jose and a few others really quick. Nice talking to you!” She said.
“You too.” He said starting to sprint again.
Dear (Y/n) (y/l/n),
Thank you so much for the offer! From what I know so far, all of our team is interested and will be able to make it. You will need to give us a heads up on dates and duration of filming so we can make videos in advance. If you can tell us, what will your portion of the collaboration include?
Here is the team list: Jamie Adenuga Vikram Barn Josh Bradley Tobi Brown Marcus Butler Casper Lee Harold Lewis Jeremie Lynch Simon Minter Olajide Olatunji Spencer Owen Ethan Payne Lewis Redman Hugh Stevens Billy Wingrove
Sincerely, Josh Bradley
“Excuse me, Jose.” (Y/n) said taking large steps to catch up to Jose Mourinho.
“Yes.” Jose said simply, turning around.
“How are we looking on March 23rd through the 26th for the guys joining us for training.” She said holding her iPad by her side.
“How many people again?”
“Fifteen. I do think that this will be fun for the team too. I’ve spoken to several of them and they seem excited for it.”
“I think we’re good then. I just need to speak to a few people before they can come. You tell your people what to do from here on. You’re the one in charge of this. I trust you with this sort of thing.”
“Yes. Thank you for going along with this. I’ve talked to people and they’ve gotten pay settled for that time. Have a good day.” (Y/n) said before walking away.
In all honesty, Jose is an amazing person but he intimidated her greatly. He had a different sense of humor than she was used to which threw her off oftentimes.
Are you available from March 23rd through the 26th? We will have housing and food covered for you and your team just to let you know. And to answer your question about what you will be doing, you’ll basically be training with our team for as much as you are able. We were thinking something along the lines of ‘can you keep up with the pros’. I’m not entirely sure on the title yet but that’s the general idea. You’ll pretty much be living like our players. That includes training facilities, recovery facilities, pitch and food. We’ll accommodate for all your needs the best we can. Most players will be available to film videos post training every day. I can speak to specific ones if you want a certain person in one of your videos.
If you have any concerns, feel free to contact me or the main box office.
A/N: I came up with this when I watched Alfie’s vlog, ‘TWO SUGGS IN MY BED.’ (link below - I do not own the video at all, just the idea for this imagine) tbf, I don’t really know where the idea came from, but I do hope you guys like it! Let me know if you do! Enjoy!
You rubbed your eyes as you looked at the time on your phone.
Who the hell was texting you at 4 in the morning?
You opened your text messages and saw that you had a text from Zoe.
‘Come get your boyfriend. He’s third wheeling Zalfie!’
You frowned and sent a quick text back.
'He’s not my boyfriend, Zo. But I’ll be there in a min.’
You slowly got up from the bed that you shared with Joe, your best friend. You both didn’t mind sharing. You always did so it wasn’t weird or awkward.
You slipped your shoes on, and grabbed your phone and key card and left the room.
You made your way to Zalfies floor and to their room. You knocked on the door and waited patiently.
“Oh, that must be room service,” Alfie said from inside the room. “I’ll go get that.” He jumped up from bed and ran down the stairs. He opened the door and saw you there. “Oh, hey, Y/N!” Alfie exclaimed and hugged you.
“Hey, Alfie,” you said, pulling away from him. Alfie moved to the side and you walked into the hotel room. “Zoe said that Joe was third wheeling and I had to come get him,” you explained, chuckling lightly.
Alfie laughed and said, “I wouldn’t say he’s third wheeling.”
I raised an eyebrow at him to say 'really?’
“Okay, maybe he is third wheeling a bit.”
“Well, I’m here now to take him off your hands,” you said, laughing. Alfie started going upstairs and you followed behind him.
“Joe!” Alfie sang. “You’ve got a visiter!” Alfie jumped back into bed while you stood near the end of the bed.
“Hi, Y/N!” Zoe exclaimed from her position in the bed. You smiled at her and Joe turned around from where he was stood near Zoe’s side of the bed.
“Y/N!” Joe shouted and ran-more like stumbled-to hug you.
“Joe, be quiet! It’s nearly 5 in the morning!” You scowled and lightly sat him down on the bed. He laid down on the bed, his head in between Zoe and Alfie’s legs.
“You should’ve been there, Y/N,” Alfie started, laughing. “Joe was off his nut at the party. It was pretty funny. Except for that one part where he bumped into the waiter and made him drop the dishes.”
You gasped and covered your mouth with your hand. “I knew I shouldn’t have left. Joe can never be on his own when drunk.” You saw Joe slowly get up and make his way to lie down next to his sister. Alfie had his camera out as he filmed Joe talk about a date he went on.
“I went on a double date to Winter Wonderland,” Joe started. You frowned as you listened to the conversation.
“No you didn’t. With who?” Alfie asked.
“I can’t say, of course. I’m being filmed.”
“Wait, but with who?”
“Just you and two girls?” Alfie questioned. Joe nodded. A weird feeling came into your stomach as you heard that.
Joe and two girls? You thought to yourself. You knew it shouldn’t have bothered you much but it did. Maybe it had to do with the fact that you were madly in love with him and have been for the past 16 years.
You lightly shook your head rid of the thought and looked back at the trio. You saw that they were all looking at you.
“Why’d you shake your head, Y/N?” Alfie asked you. His camera was facing you.
“Err…no reason. I was just thinking,” you quickly replied. Before anyone could question you anymore, you said, “right, well I think it’s time for me and Joe to go now. Come on, Joe.” You went over to Joe and lightly tugged him to stand up. He got up but suddenly fell into you. You quickly balanced yourself and him as he leaned into you. You made him throw his arm over your shoulder so that you could help him to your room. You slid your arm around his waist as you went over to the stairs.
“Bye, Y/N. Bye, Broseph,” Zoe said. “Don’t get up to anything naughty!” She winked and you rolled your eyes.
“Shut up, Zoe,” you scowled and helped Joe down the stairs. “We’ll see you guys in the morning. Goodnight!” You said as you got to the bottom of the stairs.
“Thank you for helping me, Y/N,” Joe exclaimed, grinning. “I don’t know where I’d be without my beautiful best friend!” Your stomach flipped when he called you beautiful but all feelings subsided when he called you his best friend.
Best friend, you thought. That’s all I’ll ever be to you, Joseph Sugg.
You made your way to the elevator with Joe stuck to your hip. You pressed the button to your floor as you waited. Joe’s head slowly started dropping and you quickly shook him.
“Joe, we’re nearly to our room. Stay awake a little while longer, will ya?” You uttered as the door to the elevator opened. You pulled Joe inside and made him lean against the wall for support. You let go of him and pressed the button to your floor. You stood next to him as the elevator chugged to a start.
“You’re looking hot in that outfit, Y/N,” you heard Joe say from beside you. You could tell he had a cheeky smirk on his face. You blushed as you remembered what you were wearing.
It was a white crop top with a pair of sports shorts. There wasn’t anything 'hot’ about it; it’s literally just what you wear to bed.
“Erm, thank you?” You replied, nervously. Joe laughed, deeply and you just blushed even more and looked away.
After a few seconds of a calm, yet awkward, silence, you heard Joe shuffling. From the corner of your eye, you could see Joe reposition himself. He pushed his weight off the wall so that he was standing alone.
“Joe, are you sure you’ll be okay standing alone?” You asked him. He ignored you and suddenly pushed the 'Emergency Stop’ button. The elevator halted and you spun around quickly to face Joe. “What the fuck, Joe? What do you think you’re doing?” You half-shouted at him. He still didn’t answer you. Instead, he turned to face you.
He had a look in his eye that you couldn’t decipher. You’ve never really seen that look before. It was scary, somewhat.
“Joe,” you started off, “are yo-” he grabbed your waist and pushed you against the elevator wall. Your breath hitched in your throat as your brain tried to wrap around what was happening. His face was millimeters away from yours. His eyes looked in between your eyes and your lips. “Joe, what are you do-” he never let you finish your sentence. His lips smashed into yours and you froze.
A few seconds went by and you realised what was happening. You don’t know how it happened, but you somehow found yourself kissing him back. His hands stayed put on your waist while yours managed to find themselves tangled in his hair. Joe bit your lower lip, as if asking for permission to enter, and you opened your mouth slightly. You both fought for dominance but in the end, Joe won.
After that heated make out session, you both pulled away from each other, but still in each other’s arms.
“Joe, you’re drunk, you don’t know what you’re doing,” you quickly said and slid out of his arms. You turned around so your back was to him.
“I’m not drunk pshh,” he said and you could tell he was swaying in his steps. “And I do know what I’m doing, I’m kissing the girl I love.”
Your heart started to beat really fast when he said that. But you shook it off as just Joe saying things because he’s drunk.
The elevator started up again and next thing you knew, you were on your floor.
“Well, come on, we’re here,” you said and pulled Joe out of the lift and to your room. You pushed him in, lightly, and he stumbled a bit but soon regained his composure. He went over to the bed and flopped down on one side. You went over to the other side and laid down as well. You shifted so that you were facing away from him and turned the lights off so the room was dark.
“Night, Y/N,” Joe uttered, softly, from his side.
“Goodnight, Joe,” you replied back. It was silent for the next few minutes so you thought Joe had passed out. You decided to try sleep again. But you couldn’t.
After another minute, you felt Joe shift behind you and next thing you knew, his arm was wrapped around your waist and his face was nuzzled into your hair.
You didn’t mind.
Something did catch you off guard though. It’s what Joe said next,
“I do really love you, Y/N, more than a friend.” He kissed your head.
You heart stopped beating at that and you didn’t reply. You pretended you were asleep.
Joe obviously doesn’t mean it, he’s drunk, you thought.
Or does he?
It was 11:32am and you were awoken to the sound of banging on your hotel room door.
You groaned and slid out of bed and answered the door. “What?” You said, grumpily.
“Someone woke up on the wrong side of the bed this morning,” Marcus said as him, Alfie, Jim and Jim’s brother, John, walked into your room. They all took a seat on the couch.
“Yeah, sure, just come in, why don’t ya?” You replied, shooting daggers at them.
“We came to wake you and Joe up as lunch is being served in less than half an hour. We would’ve woken you up at breakfast but we didn’t know what you were doing,” Jim said, adding a wink to the end of his sentence. You fake laughed and flipped him the finger. He chuckled.
“Shut up, nothing happened,” you voiced and sat on the edge of the bed.
They ignored you and Alfie asked, “is he still asleep?” You nodded. The boys looked at each other and grinned. You raised your eyebrows, unaware of their plan. “I’d move out of the way, Y/N,” Alfie said. You quickly jump up from the bed and moved aside.
All the boys jumped up from their seats on the couch and ran to the bed. One by one they all belly flopped on Joe, piling on top of him. From beneath the pile, you could hear Joe groaning.
You laughed from the sidelines and watched as Joe tried pushing all of them off of him. He was losing by far.
Soon enough, they all got off of him. “There we go, now he’s awake,” Marcus said with a smile. “We’ll leave you to it.” And then they all walked out of our room like nothing happened.
“That was probably one of the best things I’ve seen this whole trip,” you voiced with a laugh. Joe grunted from his position on the bed; he was laying on his stomach, sprawled out. You went over and laid down next to him on your back. You pushed his hair away from his eyes and said, “it’s okay, love, a nice shower will help you.”
Suddenly, everything from last night came back to you. You were about to get up but Joe grabbed your wrist and said, “can we just lay here for a bit? We can be late to lunch.” You chuckled and nodded. You laid back down but this time you laid down on your side so you could face Joe.
It was silent, just consisted of you and Joe looking into each other’s eyes. It wasn’t awkward but you broke the silence by asking, “do you remember anything from last night?”
“Yeah,” was Joe’s simple reply.
“Oh. What do you remember?”
“A lot of things. Some things I regret,” he started saying. Your heart broke. Did he regret the elevator incident? Or did he regret admitting he loved you? “Some things I don’t regret,” he finished saying. He lifted one hand and stroked your cheek. You closed your eye and nuzzled your face into his hand.
“What don’t you regret?” You asked and opened your eyes to look at him.
“Well, I don’t regret getting so drunk that you had to come get me from Zalfie’s room. I don’t regret what happened in the elevator…and I don’t regret my confession,” he stated with a soft smile on his gorgeous face. “I really do love you, Y/N, more than a friend. Heck, I’m in love with you!”
You closed the gap in between you by capturing his lips with yours. It didn’t take him long to respond and soon he pulled you over him so that you were straddling him. You pulled away from the kiss and ran your hands down his chest.
“I’m in love with you too, Joseph,” you replied with a grin. You leaned back in and kissed him. His hands slid from your back down your sides to your thighs.
“You need to wear this outfit more often,” he mumbled into your lips. You smiled and you could feel him smile into the kiss as well.
