my sidgeno AU

remember that sidgeno universe swap AU headcanon i made from way back, like married-to-Geno-professor in Russian Lit Sidney somehow gets swapped with NHL Sidney in the universe where Sidney is the Captain of the Pens while driving to PPG Paints Arena with his toddler son so they can pick up Geno and go out for lunch or something. Anyways, when Sidney and son walk through those doors, they cross the border into the NHL universe.

“Woah, Sid, I was joking about stealing a child,” Flower says, when he sees Sidney, holding Evan in his arms. “You didn’t…actually steal him, did you?”

“You’re not that funny, Marc-Andre,” Sidney says, rolling his eyes. “Where’s Geno?”

“‘Marc-Andre’?” Flower echoes. “Where the hell did that come from?”

“Just tell me where he is,” Sidney says. “Evan’s hungry.”

“Hungry,” the child in Sidney’s arm says. “Daddy, want macnchee.”

“Okay, sweetheart,” Sidney coos, nuzzling his nose against the child’s. “We’re gonna find Papa and then we can go get something to eat.”

“Woah, what?” Flower gapes, trailing quickly behind Sidney, as Sidney walks briskly towards the rink. “Sid, is that your son. What the hell is going on?”

“I’m not in the mood for–Geno, there you are! I’ve called you like twice but you didn’t pick up.” Sidney sets Evan down, and Evan totters towards Geno, latching onto his ankle. “You ready to go?”

“Go?” Geno repeats, staring at the child, then back up at Sidney. “Who this?”

Sidney lets out a long-suffering sigh. “Geno, look, I’m hungry, Evan’s hungry, I just want to get to the restaurant as soon as possible and then finish writing the midterm for next week–”

“What are you talking about, Sid? What midterm? Why you not dressed for practice?”

Evgeni. Cut it out with the antics,” Sidney says sharply in Russian. The rookies look up with wide-eyes. “I know we’ve been fighting about our schedules, but this isn’t the time for that conversation. You’re behaving like a child. Can we just please go?”

What the hell is happening here?” Tanger says, toweling off his hair. “Why’s Sidney speaking Russian?”

Sidney sucks in a breath. “Can I just have one conversation with my husband without getting interrupted every other word? God.” He counts to five in his mind, then opens his eyes. Jake had dropped his water bottle. Geno is staring at him, mouth slightly open. “What? Why’s everyone staring at me?”

Please imagine with me the jazz musician!Geno AU:

Sid decides to change things up a bit by going to a bar that advertises live music some nights. The bar has a laid back atmosphere, and no one comes up to him for an autograph or a selfie. It’s great. And the jazz band is great: lively and sensual and full of surprises.

They’re all exceptional musicians, but Sid’s eye keeps roving back to the bassist. He’s about as tall as the instrument he plays and has an easy smile. And frankly, his hands are enormous, and the way they glide over the strings is very… inspiring.

Sid comes back often enough that he becomes something of a regular, so perhaps it shouldn’t be surprising when one night, while the band is taking a break, the bassist slides into the seat next to him at the bar and orders a drink.

“See you in here a lot,” the man says, his voice deep and accented. He nods toward Sid’s glass. “Like the drinks?”

Feeling bold, Sid says, “I like the music better.”

The man grins, tongue clenched between his teeth in an endearing way. “Good. Always happy when people enjoy our music. I’m Geno.” He holds out one of those big hands to shake; Sid takes it, and takes in the warmth as well as the texture of the calluses.

“I’m Sid.”

“Nice to meet.”

Geno lets go and takes a long sip of his drink, and Sid watches the bob of his throat with fascination. Bolstered by the loose atmosphere, a little liquid courage, and the fact that Geno approached him first, Sid lets the wild streak he feels building in him give voice to the thought he’s been turning over for weeks.

“Are you doing anything after?”

Geno gazes at him, steady and considering. Sid lets him look, trying not to fidget under the scrutiny, more tasking than a full media onslaught. But finally Geno shrugs, and tosses the rest of his drink back with one smooth motion. “No plans later.” His smile is slow but sure, and maybe a little cocky, which Sid finds he rather likes. “But maybe you do?”

With confidence, Sid returns the smile. “Maybe. How about dinner?”

Geno hums. “Will be late for dinner.”

“Is that a no?”

“No, dinner is good,” Geno replies. “Usually hungry after set is over. I go out with band but can skip tonight.” His gaze dips briefly to Sid’s mouth, and Sid encourages it by wetting his lips. “Usually tired too, so maybe need coffee.”

Softly, Sid says, “I can get you coffee.”

Geno’s grin returns, full force. “Then you wait for me. Give you good show.” And it doesn’t really matter whichever way he’s implying: Sid believes him.

So Geno goes back to his double bass, and Sid listens to him play the rest of the set. The music ends with a dreamy, lilting sort of song, and Sid gathers up his light jacket while Geno puts his instrument away. When they step outside into the brisk Pittsburgh air, the night feels full of possibilities.

So obviously in my model!Sid au he and Geno both request to work with each other all the time, at first because they both have massive crushes and then because they’re actually dating. It’s a great way to do their jobs and get to see each other since their schedules are so busy.

The thing is, they’re meant to be doing like, manly sports ads most of the time.

So photographers and directors keep having to be like “less sexual tension please oh my god stop looking at each other like that” as their shoots together edge further and further into Obviously In Love.

At first Sid was hired because Geno was awkward in front of the camera and didn’t know much English and he needed the professional help, but once he gets better the photographers are like “okay Geno you’re comfortable enough, Sid can go, we need less Tension” and of course Geno’s like “uh…. no. he stays” and gives them the Intimidating Russian Bear Stare Down.

They try a slightly different tactic. “Maybe stand like, apart? not touching each other?”

Geno, draping himself over Sid’s back, arms around his waist, chin on his shoulder “I don’t understand the question.”

And there’s Conveniently Forgotten English at moments.

“Sid can’t go, he’s interpreter and my English very bad”

“We all know Sid doesn’t speak Russian”

“He is, how you say… good at body language. Is why he’s model.”

And speaking of models, a lot of hockey players date female models, so Sid’s probably friends with like half the WAGs before meeting them through Geno.

He walks into some team function and recognizes someone’s girlfriend and is all “Hey I clutched you dramatically in the rain for that perfume shoot, nice to see ya again.”


Cinderella AU: When commoner Sidney indulged himself by attending the royal ball held in honor of Prince Evgeni of Russia, he certainly hadn’t planned on catching the prince’s eye, nor dancing with him. At curfew, Sidney had no choice but to return to his boring life, not even noticing until he was home that he lost his precious necklace. Within the following days, Prince Evgeni’s men searched throughout the towns for the beautiful and mysterious owner of the necklace….


AU – “For the past year, there have been many rumors circulating that Pittsburgh Penguins captain, Sidney Crosby, and member of the Russian boyband Metallurg, Evgeni Malkin, have been dating. Crosby and Malkin were first spotted together at an airport in Moscow last summer, but both have dodged all speculating questions so far. At the 2014 NHL Awards, not only did Crosby win the Art Ross Trophy, Hart Trophy, and Ted Lindsay Award, Crosby also brought Malkin as his "plus one” and confirmed their relationship!“


Sid/Geno AU – Sidney, Geno, and Jack all attend the same high school. Sidney has a crush on Geno; unfortunately, everyone thinks they’re dating but they’re just super close. Sidney doesn’t want to jeopardize his friendship with Geno (who may or may not understand stupid high school gossip), so Sidney’s left to pine over him. Jack is Sidney’s best friend who teases him mercilessly and refuses to watch game tape with them ever again. 


Wedding AU — “In this upcoming issue of WHIRL Magazine, we have the exclusive wedding photos of Pittsburgh Penguins’ superstars, Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin! Crosby and Malkin have been dating for several years before finally tying the knot in front of friends, family, former teammates, and current teammates. While the ceremony was very formal and elegant, the reception was filled with fun and laughter and included endless selfies, penguin-themed decorations, and a Stanley Cup cake to match the one they won this past season!”


Sid/Geno breakup!AU inspired by Adele’s “First Love” – Geno is tired of being second to hockey in Sid’s life. Geno wants to hold Sid’s hand in public, he wants Sid to come home to him after losses instead of staying for 2 hours on the ice punishing himself, and he wants Sid to love him as much as he loves Sid. But things aren’t always easy, and relationships don’t always last, no matter how great it was in the beginning. After a painful playoff elimination, Geno breaks up with Sid and tries to move on from his first love. (Sid will never move on from his failed love.)

sorry for spamming but i just love your actor sid!au, and i have these headcanons about sid n geno on camera together. one of their earliest show together was 'mtv's my crib celeb's edition' kind of show. geno was gushing when he showed off sid's awards while sid was giddy with excitement when he showed off geno's olympic medals and there were giant photos of them with the Stanley Cup. then sid made cameo appearances (quite frequently) on pens tv in the room. (1)

then sid got cast as a lead voice actor in an animated movie and geno had a line or two in it, complete with his thick russian accent. but the ultimate was when they made a special movie on SoL (like for it’s 20th anni or something) and sid played the big NHL star who was struggling to overcame his severe concussion. and the captain of his biggest rival team (who appeared in like 7 scenes for a total of 17minutes) was of course played by geno. the on ice screen was shot during the summer. (2/3)

and if you pause at the right time and zoom in on the bottom left corner of the screen, you can catch a glimpse of jake lurking around in the background. and you can bet all your $ that when the movie was released on dvd, Jake had 3 signed copies of it (1 for watching, 1 for archive and 1 for backup) and he also had the movie poster and a real size cutout of sid in his room. (olli chirped him for it, but he also bought jake the complete lunch box and water bottle set) (3/3)


First of all? I love everything. Second of all? I love everything.

YESSS!!!!! your tags on that post of everyone walking in in suits I love it!!!! They're making a deal with their rivals the Washington branch and sid wants to come along cause he likes the swedes over there, and geno's like "no." So sid keeps bugging him until he gives in and he's like "fine! But you have to have all the bodyguards." Which the Washington branch finds hilarious.
