he smiled in to my camera

youtube

oh my gosh, every time he goes up he looks at the camera!! SO PRECIOUS (part 6 of those weird videos of sportacus exercising while staring into your soul)

and he also did this sorta thing in 1993!!

at 1:48

A few years ago when I was wandering around a cute little town just outside of Budapest, a picture was snapped of me by a stranger on his fancy camera. I was in the middle of laughing and taking a bite of my ice cream. I’ve always wondered how that picture turned out.

anonymous asked:

What if Louis performs at the Brits and the rest of the guys are there specifically to support him. He finishes and the camera goes to the guys. Liam is whistling for Louis. Niall is air punching, and Harry? Harry is standing there clapping so hard with a huge smile and finding look. I just died from my own words. Help.

Meet Teddy.

Teddy is 6.

Teddy is my angel.

Teddy has autism, and taking photos of him is tricky. It usually requires a gazillion pictures in order to get one that doesn’t involved speed streaks as he whizzes out of the frame.

The top picture is the result of being asked one too many times to smile.  It is his very best camera smile.

Here, Teddy is modelling the Hobbit Hat, which is actually a very speedily knitted ‘emergency’ hat because I didn’t pack enough for February on the North Norfolk coast.

anonymous asked:

I was watching the tough mudder video the other day and rewatched the part where Jensen helps Jared climb over the wall. Both of them exchange a few words that also included a "baby" but it mostly sounded in a jokey way. Like I guess certain guys (Jared?) might say. Right after that Jar says "thanks brother", (you can hear him say that). So I'm confused. Does he say that to Jensen...? or perhaps the person holding the camera, if the person isnt Jen himself? Just needed an opinion on this..

Hello, dear anon!

(23:11) Do you mean this part? I keep rewinding it back and forth, but damn how loud that music is! I can only be fairly certain Jared says something like “Yeah baby!” when he looks at the camera with a victorious smile. It’s possible Jensen says something that ends with “baby” just before that, but I can’t be sure. My English skills only go so far, I fear.

There’s one part of the video where I’m pretty sure I hear Jared call Jensen “baby” and it happens at 6:34 - “Yeah baby”. It sounds like he’s cheering him on. Jensen is also not the only one that enjoys that nickname on this video - Jared is pretty liberally calling the guys “baby” here.

I find it a little hard to work on the tone of voice alone, since you can’t see his face when he says that. I can tell you that both Jensen and Jared go out of their way to avoid calling each other that in public, so to hear them say it in any context is pretty big to me.

I apologize I couldn’t help you more, sweet anon! See here for more Tough Mudder talk that was recently had over here. I hope someone reading this takes on the challenge to assess this! *wink wink*

Have a fabulous day, anon!

Thrilled to be reunited with my fave fandom partners (ljummen and tsumi) to bring you this Sterek treat for Valentine’s!

One Life Stand by Vendelin (Businessman!Derek/Prostitute!Stiles, 84K)

Stiles is used to selling himself to make ends meet. But it’s getting harder to keep those ends meeting, and there’s only so much of Stiles to go around. Until a too-fancy car shows up in his neighborhood, and he meets Derek Hale.

All Derek wants is Stiles’s time, someone to stay on his arm for events and smile for the cameras. It’s the easiest job Stiles has ever had, the best-paying one he’s ever had, and he’s more than happy to sign up.

Derek is everything and nothing Stiles expects him to be, with his tailored suits, sharp mind and his quiet way of caring. But it’s just a job and Stiles never meant to fall in love.

I was whatching the ep 1 again and I just noticed it: In a moment, while Viktor was skating, he looks so
so tired?? Here is the moment


Then we have the interview..
Here we have a smiling Viktor to the cameras. But only to the cameras  in a moment because right after that…


He appears and..


Look at this man. Searching for the right words, trying to answer what a reporter asked, but he really seems tired and wondering what to do next. Viktor was tired and already running out of ideas, he could no longer surprise the audience.
He was not happy the way he was. So pls, stop saying he was happy the way his life was..

A YouTuber AU SnowBaz fanfic for the Carry On Countdown

Penelope

Simon Snow’s first YouTube video is one of my favourites.  It’s as painfully awkward as any other YouTuber’s first video.  He sits up too straight in his chair, he smiles and laughs too mechanically, and the film quality itself is poor, with half of his words lost to shoddy editing. Yet despite all this, it’s adorable.

           And of course, it’s the origin of the biggest OTP on YouTube, SnowBaz.

           “Hi guys,” Simon waves at the camera, his hand going all pixelated at the movement.  “Welcome to the first video on my channel!”  He’s inserted a sound effect of people cheering.  I have to laugh.  It’s so damn cringe-worthy.

           He goes on for a few moments, trying to make jokes and jump-cuts that work, when finally, it’s everyone’s favourite part.

           “What are you doing, Snow?” comes a voice from off-camera.  My heart turns to mush.

           Baz.

           Simon’s new flatmate, or at least he was new at this point.

           “Making my first YouTube video,” Simon grins up at someone behind the camera.  “Come say hi!”

           “-bleep- no.”

           Even the censor sounds old, like it was stolen from the year 2007.

           Simon looks a bit panicked, like he’s realizing that he’ll have to edit out the swear word.  A door slams somewhere out of the shot.

           “That’s my new flatmate,” he tells us.  “His name is Baz.  He’s kind of a prat.”

           “Just you wait,” I whisper at my computer screen. “Just you wait.”

 ***

           Simon and Baz do not get along.  At all.

           That much is clear from the first video, but it become increasingly obvious as Simon posts more frequently.  He often films in the living room, which drives Baz insane.

           “Why don’t you film in your own room?” he says, audibly annoyed.

           “The lighting in there is terrible,” Simon protests.

           “Well, I’d like to be able to walk around my own flat, if you don’t mind.”

           “Go ahead, no one’s stopping you,” Simon shrugs. “Besides, the viewers keep saying they want to see you.”

           “Well, who wouldn’t?”

           Good old Baz.  Sarcastic and full of himself.  They don’t appear to realize it, but the two of them balance each other out perfectly.

           Little by little, Baz begins to make his mark on Simon’s channel.  At first we only hear him from off-screen, offering his two bits about nearly everything Simon has to say.  Many of his comments are admittedly quite mean and uncalled for, but Simon never edits them out.  Baz is the invisible heckler.  Viewers begin to latch onto this weird relationship of apparent hatred and, as YouTube viewers are wont to do, turn it into a new ship.  “SnowBaz” they call it, and before long the comment sections on all of Simon’s videos are full of things like “I ship it” and “OTP”.

           I try not to fall victim to this shipping trend myself.  It feels insensitive to me, shipping real live people that I’ve never even met like they’re objects of sorts.  But even I can’t deny that the two of them would be cute together.  Provided they stop hating each other.

           Then Baz appears onscreen for the first time.

           He’s on the couch in the background, facing away from the camera.  All we can see is long black hair.  He only moves when he’s shouting ridicule at Simon’s words.  Once he turns his head further to make himself heard, and we catch a glimpse of the light brown skin of his face.  This time the comments are all “is that Baz?” and “OMG BAZ”.

           After that he starts to appear more often. Sometimes he’s facing the screen, looking down at his phone or a book.  He’s tall, and his hair reaches his shoulders.  The expression on his face goes between concentration and a sneer, that latter of which he reserves for his heckling.  It doesn’t take long for people to start commenting on how attractive he is.  Still Simon leaves all the footage of Baz in his videos, not hiding a single rude comment from his viewers.

           Once, Simon tries to get Baz to join him for a “meet my flatmate” video.  Baz responds simply by flipping Simon off in the background, which Simon has to pixel out. He’s gotten better at editing at this point.

           Sometimes Simon posts daily vlogs on days when he does things that he considers exciting.  The things that Simon finds exciting are too cute for words.  They tend to be little events like going to a coffee shop, things that are almost mundane but for some reason they excite him. He does this thing where he dances when he’s excited.  He’ll bob his head cheerfully as he walks, glad to just be out.  He’s gone to the grocery store with Baz a few times in his vlogs.  Those videos are some of the best ones.  They bicker about everything from which kind of milk to get to who gets to carry the baskets.  Sometimes we can see Baz’s mouth quirk like he’s trying not to laugh, like all this bickering is just a game for him.  Of course, this sends the SnowBaz shippers into a frenzy, the idea that maybe, just maybe, Baz doesn’t hate Simon as much as he lets on.

           But there’s one video on Simon’s channel that is the absolute bread of life for anyone who ships the two of them.  Simon is doing a Q&A, and as usual Baz is sitting and reading in the background.

           “This question is from Twitter,” Simon says, reading off of his phone.  “They ask ‘Are you in love with anyone right now?’”

           And if you look closely, you can see Baz go rigid.

           “Well,” Simon leans in close to the camera, “I have been messaging with someone quite a lot.  I don’t know who the person is, but we’ve gotten really close and I’m starting to think -”

           “Could you keep it down, Snow,” Baz pipes up, his voice tight.  “I’m trying to read over here.”

           Simon doesn’t speak of it any further, but Baz sneaks glances at the back of Simon’s head more than once before the video is over. I don’t know how Simon could have not noticed it.  Certainly every single one of his viewers did, which is to say over a million people. Perhaps love is completely daft.

 ***

           When I arrive home from work on a particularly rainy day in October, I am delighted to open my computer and find that Simon is in the middle of a livestream.  Comments flow constantly from the sidebar and I settle in to join the party.  He’s in a different room this time, one with a neatly made bed on which he sits, and I gather that it’s his room.  It looks so clean, but I wonder if there’s a disaster hiding behind the camera.

           Simon leans towards us like he’s trying to read all of the comments and questions as they flood in.  He gets a lot of I love you’s and he grins in response, trying to return as many of them as possible.

           “I’ve got to go soon,” he tells us and I sigh in disappointment, “but I’ll answer a few more questions first.”  He’s quiet for a minute as all the viewers catch up with the stream.  “Here’s one: ‘Did you find out who was messaging you so much?’”  He pauses before answering.  “Funny you should ask, because yes, I did, and that’s a perfect segway into what I wanted to talk about.”  He shifts on his bed.  “I have a bit of an announcement -”

           His door opens behind him, and Baz in all his glory appears in it.

           Comments start flying in of “BAZ” and “OMG”

           “What are you doing?” Baz asks without a hint of a sneer in his voice.

           “Just filming a live show,” Simon tells him. He seems… nervous?

           “A live show, eh?”  Baz strolls over and – wonder of wonders – sits down on the bed next to Simon.  We’ve never seen him this close to the camera, and his eyes are this lovely mix of gray and green.

           We’ve also never seen him this close to Simon before.

           My heart kicks up a notch.  I’ve fallen down the slippery slope and now there’s no denying that I ship it completely.  I grab a pillow to hold to my chest and go into fangirl-mode, overanalysing every inch of their proximity.  With a click I maximize the screen, blocking the other comments from my view.  I want to see every pixel of this.

           “I was just going to make that little announcement,” Simon says, staring at his hands in his lap.

           “Ah,” Baz nods, apparently understanding.  “Go on, then.  Carry on, Simon.”

           Did he –

           Did he just call him Simon?

           He never calls him Simon!

           “I can’t do it if you’re here!” Simon protests.

           Baz gives a shrug.  “Then I’ll tell them.”

           He takes Simon by the collar and kisses him.  

           I scream into my pillow.

           Simon and Baz are kissing, right now, in front of millions of people.

           I can practically hear the collective aneurism that the fangirls are currently having.

           They’re still kissing, and Simon is grinning against Baz’s mouth.  It’s the most genuine smile he’s ever graced the internet with, and it’s not even for us.

           I’m tearing up, I’m so happy for them.

           Baz lets Simon go and turns to smirk at the camera. “That one’s for all you SnowBaz shippers out there.  Don’t think we don’t know.”  He winks. He fucking winks.

           And then he leaves.  

           Simon turns back to the camera, his cheeks red and his lips puffy.  He grins sheepishly.

           “Um, yeah,” he stammers, “that’s what I was gonna tell you about.”

           I tap the comment box.

           pennyforyourthoughts: Called it.

Today I wore my Winchester Bros t-shirt and my KAZ 2Y5 necklace, both of which I got at NJCon this year and which I was wearing for the first time. I knew Jared and Gen were in NYC and I was walking to the bus home, texting my friend jokingly that I was keeping an eye out for them. Two minutes after, I look up and I saw something familiar. A split second later I recognized who it was, and my legs legitimately turned to jelly and my heart felt like it had stopped. He noticed me before I even started walking up to him, and pointed at my t-shirt and gave me this big grin and said “Hey! Like your shirt!” And I said “Thank you!” and asked if we could take a photo. Gen smiled and offered to take it for me, and I asked her if she could be in it too, and she said “Sure!” I took out my phone and opened the camera, and Jared reached out and took my phone, saying with a little smile, “Here, let me take it. I’ve got longer arms!” And I said “Yeah, good idea. I’m too short.” And we took the photo and he said “Is that good?” And I said “Yes thank you!” He complimented my t-shirt again, and then noticed my necklace and said he liked it too. I told him “I just got them! At NJcon on Friday!” And he gave a huge smile and said “Oh cool! What’s your name?” I said “My name’s Tova!” And he said “Nice to meet you Tova, I’m Jared and this is Gen” and I replied “Oh, wow yeah, I totally didn’t know that” to which he started laughing, and as they walked away I told them I hope they have a good time in NYC, and they both smiled gently at me and walked away.

….I don’t think I’ll forget this for as long as I live.

I was looking at this gif 

and gettin fucked up cause can you just imagine being Victor in this moment?? 

As far as I can tell (from the way the perspective shifts to follow his movements), Yuuri’s unknowingly doing this to the camera rn. He’s reaching out to the camera, and then gives the sweetest smile ever and!!!

Imagine being Victor. It’s been months since the banquet, Katsuki Yuuri hasn’t tried contacting you and has essentially dropped off the face of the Earth. You’ve (probably) skated Stammi Vicino at World’s as a dedication to the boy who stole your heart; a desperate plea, if he’s still out there, watching, to come back to you. You couldn’t have been the only one to feel the connection, right?

Let’s come back to the moment in question: your feeds are blowing up with this video, and curiously, you click on it. And here he is. Yuuri comes up on your screen and he’s skating it. Stammi Vicino. Stay Close to Me. And, as you realize this is a rather resounding confident reply, a confirmation of shared love, the object of your affections looks directly into the camera, he looks at you, and smiles sweetly, kindly. And you know you’re gone. 

(you then immediately fly halfway across the world with your dick out for this boy, but I digress)

“What!” Tater says. “Zimmboni, why are you smile so much?”

Jack looks up, the grin curving his face, and pushes the laptop back a little like a small invitation to watch. “My old team asked me to watch some of their tape and give them some feedback. They… get a little goofy.”

Tater happily settles in next to Jack to get a look at the people Jack loves so much, and grins himself at their warmup antics, at the coordinated dances the captains do after a goal, at the way the boys mug the rinkside camera, like they know it’s for Jack. He stays sitting when Jack finishes writing his post-game notes, starts up the next video. The file name says it’s a practice, not a game.

The overhead camera shows that one of the captains is geared up and doing laps around the empty rink with their team manager on his shoulders; after a second the figure obscuring the rinkside camera backs up from where he was turning it on, and carefully checks it over before backing up more, so he can make sure it’s perfectly positioned. He’s the second captain, the fearless one who occasionally pulls off prodigies of stick-handling, who gives the camera a heart-melting grin and a thumbs up before turning and skating away. OLURANSI, his jersey says.

Tater unsticks his tongue from the roof of his mouth. “I like your team,” he says. “I come meet them, yes? You introduce us.”

Jack looks apprehensive for a minute, and Tater tries not to feel hurt, but then he smiles. “They’d love that.”

I’m love that,” Tater says firmly, and then looks back at the screen. Other players are coming in, so Birkholtz and Oluransi have put the team manager down, put their serious faces on; but Oluransi’s smile lives on in the warmth of Tater’s stomach.

does anyone else look for pictures of dan and then see a perfect one where hes smiling and thE ONLY THING IS HES NOT LOOKING AT THE CAMERA. HES LOOKING AT PHIL. BC THE TIMES WHERE HES MOST HAPPY AND RADIANT AND FULL OF JOY IS WHEN HES LOOKING AT HIS BEST FRIEND. IF THAT ISNT THE BEST FUCKING PORTRAYAL LOVE I DONT KNOW WHAT IS MY FRIENDS

Viktor's theme for season 2 *please please please*

Viktor on live TV wearing a gorgeous looking suit: *walks up to podium– blushing and holds his board against him so no one can see it*
Viktor: *blushes on his ears*

Cameras flash

Yuri in line a few skaters behind him.. tapping his foot: waits impatiently to hear viktor’s theme.. (he couldn’t get viktor to tell him beforehand.)

Viktor grabs the microphone: “This season my theme is something very important… pure and perfect. It’s something that inspires me every moment of every day… I hope through my skating I can portray the feelings I have in my heart.. I hope my feelings reach you” *smiles glamorously*

Viktor: *sets board down facing the crowd and walks away blushing slightly on his cheeks, makes slight eye contact with Yuri and walks off the stage*


The board just says “Yuri”.

Turning around you came face to face with Tae.

“Beach?” He asked.

“No. Bitch.” You said before kissing his cheek, leaving him by himself.

“I’m so excited you guys, oh my god!” You blushed.

Once you two met up and were on your way back to the car you turned the camera back on.

“Baby, say hello!” You aimed the camera towards him.

“Huh? Ah.. Hello!” He stuttered, waving and smiling.

“Aish he’s so fucking cute!” You whispered/screamed.

“Jagiya! Language!” He said, shocked that you cursed, but lowkey… he liked it.

You were at a party with your boyfriend. You got swept away in a conversation with Americans which meant you all were speaking English.

J, watched as you all conversed and tried to make out words he knew or remembered from a movie.

“Stop being a dick, Jake.” You rolled your eyes.

J’s face resembled a mix of confusion with disgust.

He was confused to as to why you called someone a dick but was disgusted with the comparison. 

He didn’t mind you cursing, he was too wrapped up in Jake and why he was a dick.

He looked at you from his seat and nodded his head. 

“Maknae approved.”

“…Kissing my ass!” 

He was getting into it, jumping up and down, laughing at you. 

“You’re so cool jagiya! Who ever wrote that song must be really cool too, right?” He laughed out.

You stopped rapping and walked away.

He stopped jumping and smiling, “Right, jagiya?!” He screamed, running after you.

“..Got an automated dick.” You paused the song and looked at him.

“What the hell is an ‘ automated dick’?” You asked, laughing out at his blushed face.

“Like do you fuck all the time because if so, this is a lie.” You stated, chuckling and looking away to grab your drink.

When you looked back he was silent, deadly still. 

“It’s a lie? Want me to prove it?” He threaten
