carry on cast + youtube, my personal hc/au (?????)(it’s post canon but also au anna why do u always have to make things complicated idfk)
okay so i think it would all start with agatha
she would start a youtube channel with one of her friends in california
it’s like all aesthetically pleasing beautify + life style blog.
picture make-up/ hair/ nails/ idek videos but also baking videos, house/apartment tours anything hauls.
the kiddo’s over in london would start watching her, first just because it’s nice to see what agatha’s up to in ca, but they get low-key addicted to her channel because her video’s are just so nice and the aesthetic is on point.
i feel like baz would get hardcore addicted. like he’d love all her video’s and would literally text her about the nice clothes she showed in her haul and stuff like that. (such bonding)
simon would try out recipes from her baking videos and sent agatha pictures of the results and aah it’s just all so cute and nice.
penny enjoys the make-up vids way more than she likes to admit.
anyways, baz is so into agatha’s channel and just the entire youtube thing that he’s thinking of starting one of his own
agatha finally convinces him to just start one and see how it’ll go.
so he starts one but gets lost quite quickly because he doesn’t know what to make video’s about
his first video is a clothing haul and like, he does enjoy doing it, but his heart just isn’t fully in it.
so he makes like one meh video every 2 months, not really knowing what he’s doing until he decides that he needs to rearrange some stuff here.
baz starts daily vlogging.
lbr baz can talk a lot and just is such a snarky person. imagine him filming his day with his witty comments on the things that happen.
penny and simon find it stressful at first because they always need to be sure baz doesn’t accidentally film simon’s wings/tail or penny using magic or something.
but like they get used to it and baz is just having a lot of fun.
he notices that, because he’s filming his everyday life, he gets more out of his way to do more new stuff to make the vlogs as entertaining as possible. and it just somehow makes him more excited about just living life if that makes sense. somehow it becomes this whole therapeutic thing for him.
simon and penny appear a lot in his vlogs. baz’ viewers live for sassy conversations and discussions between penny and baz. and penny has no problem with being on camera.
for simon it takes some time to get comfortable with speaking in front of a camera. he’s not a talkative person so this whole vlogging thing is just ???¿¿?¿?????¿? to him, but baz’ viewers find simon cute and nice.
baz and simon never really said anything about their relationship on baz’ channel and they don’t really act like they’re in a relationship in front of the camera. (they’re just normal them in front of the camara, but no pda stuff) so the viewers don’t really know about their relationship
though……after some time the viewers start to suspect things because of the way the boys sometimes look at each other and stuff.
sO that’s how the ship SNAZ comes about ((yes, baz’ viewers do choose the cool ship name))
once the shipping starts baz’ channel really starts to grow (because lbr that’s how a lot of those things work in the world of fandoms. sorry.)
simon and baz start to notice how baz’ viewers are shipping them and like, posting edits and fanfiction of them on the social media and they think it’s great.
simon and baz are very amused by the shippers and start to act a tiny bit more pda on camera. just to make the viewers flip their shit
like simon will shortly rest his head on baz’ shoulder or baz brushing smudged chocolate from simon’s chin on camera and giving simon an Intense Look™ that u don’t give to ‘just friends’ ppl
the snaz fandom is dying. leGIT DYING
the “THEY’RE BASICALLY CANON. THEY’RE DATING OK. LOOK AT THEM. THIS IS NOT JUST A FRIENDSHIP. diD YoU SEe tHAT” dying.
simon and baz are just dying of laughter.
but then the fights start on social media
the ‘you should say all this stuff because it’ll make simon and baz uncomfortable and i’ll ruin their friendship’ drama.
simon and baz see all this unfold on social media and just face palm.
they’re like “should we just tell them that we’re dating?”
they don’t want to be forced to be open about their relationship online just because people are fighting about it, but at the same time they never really wanted to hide it either. they didn’t even feel like they were purposefully hiding it.
it was just that at first they didn’t do pda stuff in front of a camera because simon didn’t feel fully comfortable whilst being on camera and after that it just kinda became a silent rule that they didn’t do pda stuff on camera.
but they never actually cared about if people knew about their relationship or not so…..
one day baz just starts his daily vlog whilst still being in bed, barely woken up, and you can see simon next to him in bed in the background.
once that vlog is up everyone DIES
but the Not Shippers are just like “nono baz was just sleeping over at simon’s and penny’s it’s totally normal for them to sleep in the same bed”
simon and baz: *sigh*
second attempt of Exposing™ (not actually on youtube): baz posting a picture on instagram roses with the caption “buying flowers for my special boy @~simons ig~”
people die again, but still there are people like “special boy as in Special Good Friend”
simon and baz are ready to cry
so is the snaz fandom
so. next vlog. there’s baz and simon in the same bed again. there’s baz calling simon “love” and there’s baz just talking to the camera about something that happened (idk, him rambling about a film he just saw with simon?) whilst simon is sitting next to him with his head resting on baz’s shoulder.
the entire snaz fandom is crying happy tears and feeling blessed and thanking baz for bringing this level of adorableness into their lives.
there are idiots tweeting. “no baz isn’t dating simon u stupid fangirls”
and baz being so done just tweets back. “sorry sir/madam but simon snow, cute kid, crazy hair, is in fact my boyfriend who i have been happily dating for some time now. gnight.”
and the whole snaz fandom just explodes.
snaz is real ya’ll
(((also later, when snaz is big™ they’ll bring out sweaters and beanies with the words ‘snazzy’ on it and it’s great)))
((((also also. in an interview: “so, baz, since many big youtubers are brining out a book as well?” baz: “yes. it’s called twilight. it’s out september 6th 2006.” interviewer: ???¿????¿¿?¿??))))
i feel like i’m one of few jasper fans who’s not waiting on the scene where we find out jasper watches romantic comedies or paints in her spare time. i honestly don’t think that would add much to her character, and while i wouldn’t mind, i think people kinda… fail to understand the whole point, the whole tragedy of what she’s been up until now.
here’s the thing - one element of jasper’s character that we’ve seen again and again is that she doesn’t have a life. she’s defined herself by her purpose, as a way of coping with everything that happened. she can dismiss the traumas of the war and, later, malachite, because she has one, focused goal. if she fails, she falls apart. she loses to her own self-pity.
Roy and Riza are a great couple in most ways except one: neither can cook to save their lives. Roy would be a reasonably decent cook if he ever tried something simple, but he immediately goes for gourmet and completely botches it. Riza, despite being an almost impressively competent in every other way, somehow manages to set her food on fire the minute she gets near an oven or stove.
They basically live off of takeout
okay, so, i’ve said before that one of the reasons i hate k@llura is because allura is an adult-coded character. i stand by that statement, but, if allura’s age is confirmed otherwise, i’m not going to use it in my arguments.
however, k@llura is still a pretty bad relationship, in the eyes of a gay person. it’s heteronormative. and heteronormativity is…Very Bad, for reasons i shouldn’t have to state.
Before I got into astrology I always used to think that Lana Del Rey was a Cancer, and I think someone said that she WOULD HAVE been one if only she was born a few hours later! She was so close to being a Cancer, but I think the reason why I get Cancer vibes from her songs is because she has a Cancer Mercury, which means she thinks and communicates like a Cancer 💖 and she has her Moon in the 4th House, the House of Cancer; you can sense that her emotions come from a place of Cancerian domain :^)
Quick review: In a jump combination, the landing edge of one jump is the takeoff edge of the next jump with no break in between. Since all jumps land on a back outside edge, under normal circumstances, the second or third jump in a combination is either a toeloop or a loop, since those are the only jumps that take off from a back outside edge.
Since the 2012-13 season, the ISU has allowed the half loop to be used in combinations. The half loop is a single-rotation, non-standard jump that takes off from a back outside edge and lands on the back inside edge of the opposite foot. It effectively allows the skater to “change feet” during the combination. If the skater rotates counterclockwise (as most do), this means that the half loop takes off from the back outside edge of their right foot and lands on the back inside edge of their left foot. This allows the skater to do a salchow (the most common choice) or a flip (rare) as the next jump in the combination, since those jumps take off from the back inside edge of the left foot.
On protocols, the half loop appears as “1Lo” and has the same base value as a normal single loop. It only counts for points if done in a combination. A half loop combo is considered a 3-jump combination; if a skater does a half loop combo in the free skate, they cannot do another 3-jump combination, since only one is allowed in the free program.
When badly done (sadly all too often), the half loop can easily look like a step-out or a mistake on a jump landing. The examples I’ve used here all have a triple as the last jump in the combination, but skaters can do doubles as well. The first jump in the combination can be any of the six standard jumps (toeloop, salchow, loop, flip, lutz, axel).
