author’s note: thank you @dylanlover24 for requesting. i love the song used in this imagine and here’s a link to it. and yes, i did canonize my OTP, Niff. fight me.

Your name: submit What is this?

“Alright boys, I’m off to bed. turn all of the lights out when the movie finishes.” you said to the 5 Warblers sitting on the couch. they were watching Jaws, a movie you never really cared for.

“Yes, Mom.” groaned Thad. Sebastian smacked him upside his irritating little head. he got up and walked over to you.

“I’ll be right up once the movie’s over.” he kissed you on the lips and went to sit back on the couch.

you snuck up behind him, wrapped your arms around his shoulder, snuggling your face into his neck, and begged him to come up with you.

“babe, i can’t. i gotta comfort Jeff when he craps himself because of this,” he gestured to the TV screen, “stupid movie. emphasis on the stupid.”

“oh come on, its a good movie!” shouted Nick.

“hush up, i’m tired.” you retorted. you kissed Sebastian on the cheek and skipped off upstairs.

*1 hour later*

“Sebastian!” you screamed. you ran over to the almost-lifeless body of your boyfriend of 2 years and knelt beside him. 

“(y/n)?” he hoarsely whispered.

“Yes, Yes, baby. It’s me, i’m here. you’re going to be fine. i love you.” you said, biting back tears.

“(y/n), i’m not going to make it. just-” he groaned in pain. “just know that i love you. ever since that day at Regionals. I-” he took his final breath. you held his limp, cold hand and the tears began to pour.

“Sebastian!” you reached over and closed his eyes, your hand shaking.

“why couldn’t you have shot me instead?!” you screamed looking up at the masked figure standing before you.

“because,” he knelt down beside you, he took off his mask. there was Hunter Clarington, ex-warbler, in the flesh. “because you didn’t kick me out of the Warblers.” he glared at Sebastian’s lifeless body.

“he did.”

you woke up, screaming, sweating, terrified. you looked over to where Sebastian usually slept. he wasn’t there.

“(y/n)? oh my god, (y/n)!” said Nick, running over and sitting beside you. unsuprisingly, Jeff followed after him.

“go get Sebastian!” Nick shouted at his boyfriend. soon after Jeff ran out, Trent and Thad joined Nick in trying to calm you down.

nothing they did was working. you needed Sebastian, and you needed him now.

“(y/n), it’s okay. just relax.” you heard the familiar voice of Sebastian Smythe and felt his arms wrap around you. you buried your face into his chest, sobbing your heart out. he stroked your hair, whispering sweet nothings into your ear. he gestured for the others to leave.

you both laid down.

“do you want me to sing you a song?” he asked. you nodded in response.

“ Oh, friend of mine
Will you be mine?
Please don’t be so…
It’s OK to be terrified (terrified)
Please don’t be so shy

So will you never be my lover or my Valentine
Never be a friend of mine
Never see my better side
Baby, you’d be terrified
Of all the secrets you were wishing you won’t ever find
‘Cause deep inside me
And I don’t wanna hide me

'Cause I know about my love
'Cause I know about my love
'Cause I know about my love
'Cause I know about my love

Yeah, pick it fast like a flight far away from here (fly away)
Although I know I feel at home whenever you are near
Live my life, like you better cold cut to this
I wish you’d hold me open just to see your vision clear

'Cause I know about my love ('Cause I know about my love)
'Cause I know about my love ('Cause I know about my love)
'Cause I know about my love ('Cause I know about my love)
'Cause I know about my love ('Cause I know about my love)

'Cause I know about my love
'Cause I know about my love
About my love
About my love
About my love

Yeah, pick it fast like a flight far away from here (fly away)
Although I know I feel at home whenever you are near
Live my life, like you better cold cut to this
I wish you’d hold me open just to see your vision clear

'Cause I know about my love ('Cause I know about my love)
'Cause I know about my love ('Cause I know about my love)
'Cause I know about my love ('Cause I know about my love)
'Cause I know about my love ('Cause I know about my love)

'Cause I know about my love
'Cause I know about my love
About my love
About my love
About my love

Oh, friend of mine
Will you be mine?
Please don’t be so…
It’s OK to be terrified (terrified)
Please don’t be do shy.”

you fell asleep once again, this time in Sebastian’s arms. you dreamt about Sebastian, but this time Hunter wasn’t there and Sebastian didn’t die. you dreamt of the time at Regionals, when you two first kissed.
