I kind of want to see a Kuro au where Sebastian is human. Imagine teenage Vincent taking in this little scraggly waif off the streets of Liverpool. And this kid speaks with a low-class accent so jumbled and thick that Tanaka has to basically re-teach him how to talk.

They cut his hair and clean him up and stick him in a little waistcoat. Sebastian the kitchenboy, so short he can’t reach the cabinets. Imagine him sneaking himself food from the Phantomhive kitchen, spying on Vincent and his pals in the drawing room, getting yelled at by mini Frances, and following Tanaka like a sulky puppy.

And when he tries to hide a bunch of kittens, Vincent finds out and laughs and lets him keeps them in the garden.

Imagine Vincent giving little Sebastian a cookbook as a gift because Tanaka’s teaching him to read. Imagine Sebastian finally making it to footman and being so nervous he can’t hold a champagne tray right.

Imagine how long it’d take for that little orphan to learn to speak with a prim and proper accent, to stand straight, to stop stealing from the kitchen, to start acting like a servant worthy of Vincent Phantomhive.

Sebastian the teenage footman worshiping the ground Tanaka walks on. Sebastian feeling self-conscious when Vincent marries Rachel and there’s a lady in the house. 

Imagine Sebastian carrying baby Ciel on his back when he’s dusting the furniture. And when Vincent dies, he can’t even look at a cat without thinking about the man that was everything to him.

And when Tanaka passes the head butler title to him, it takes everything for these two men not to cry.
