People say its because Mark and Jack aren’t friends anymore, and I think thats not the case.
They still are friends, a lot, there are some parts in the livestream where they smile and talk to each other, but the thing is.
Its done where they’re not in the spotlight.
For example, Mark and Jack were tossing the toilet paper to each other and they were smiling at each other, but the camera men didn’t put them on the spotlight.
Also, Mark told Jack something and a big smile went on Jack’s face, but they were in the background, and the camera weren’t on them the whole time.
Mark and Jack always fueled the Septiplier ship back then and why don’t they do it now?
Well maybe they’re scared too?
Because back then:
The Septiplier ship was smaller, and people didn’t ship it as hardcore as they do now. They used to ship it as Mark and Jack did, in a silly, cute way.
But later on, people shipped it to a level that Mark and Jack never expected/wanted-
What I mean is smut, and people who believe they’re gay and they do love each other romantically.
Shippers who don’t ship it that way, or at least still know Septiplier won’t happen still [smut shippers], don’t worry, this isn’t completely your fault. I’m a shipper myself, so I know.
Like, do you really want drawings of you naked with a friend on the internet, especially when you’re as popular as them?
No, why would you?
Honestly, I think they might actually still wanna make those Septiplier moments keep going like they used to, but maybe they’re scared it’ll blow up and the shippers will take it too far?
It seems likely because,
it has happened.
They do sonething cute, it blows up, and now its madness and nobody can calm down.
Because if you’ve ever noticed, if you look at a Septiplier moment, its clear they’re extremely happy in each and every one.
But now they have to be cautious at every move they do on camera or else things will go nuts.
I don’t think they’re trying to sink the ship, I think they’re trying to make it back to the way it is.
But before you say “Then why don’t they just say they want the ship to calm down so they can be silly again?”
Well of course, THATS going to blow up. It doesn’t matter whether they giggle at each other or they actually do something cute, it’ll blow up either way. Its like some crazy curse. Literally, anything that includes Mark and Jack, there’s always someone going “OMG SEPTIPLIER AWAY, THEY LOVE EACH OTHER!!!” Like, come on dude, these are real people who don’t love each other romantically. Let them be them. Everything doesn’t have to be Septiplier. Why can’t it be just two friends being friends?
And just so people know, thinking Mark and Jack are actually gay, even though having girlfriends, IS NOT AN OPINION. NOT IN THIS SITUATION. ITS JUST WRONG.
There’s a difference between a fact and an opinion. And Mark and Jack being straight is a fact. They have girlfriends, who are each wonderful people, but they ALWAYS, constantly state they’re straight, they are NOT attracted to men. They are straight and have amazing ladies as their girlfriend and if you can’t respect that, then I don’t think you should be here. Think about it. (Thank you to anyone who said about Mark and Jack stating they’re straight constantly)
And if it gets to the point where Mark or Jack have to make a video on this topic, thats it. We can’t fix it then. Because if its so effective on their lives that they have to tell millions about it, is not only dissapointing, but clearly fuckin shows our fandom can’t control ships.
Because Mark and Jack are not the ones changing.
The Septiplier ship is changing, and not in a good way. We fucked up. They didn’t.
And how do we fix it?
Well, Septiplier is huge, A LOT of people ship it. Its literally the second most searched option when you type ‘Sep’ in the YouTube search bar.
And it won’t be something we can do overnight. Its going to be a slow process.
There’s a lot of us and we have to all agree.
We can’t just lay around, waiting until everything gets better. WE need to be that something that brings the ship back to the light.
The Septiplier ship ran into a harsh, big storm and we have to work together to get it out onto the right path.
I want this ship to how it started, where everybody shipped it for fun, and we didn’t attack other ships. Not saying all of us attack other ships, its just some Septiplier shippers actually do attack, I’ve seen it.
Because the more smut and hardcore shippers that join this ship, the more Mark and Jack have to be cautious.
AND THEY’RE ALREADY PRETTY FAR APART AND CAUTIOUS.
They’re not sinking the ship.
They’re warning us to fuckin fix ourselves and the flaws of this ship, before its too late.
And honestly, Septiplier isn’t just a ship anymore, its a community that needs some fixing. Its also a place where Mark and Jack fans join together. Because Mark and Jack have a beautiful bond thats brought their communities together. And lets not break that bond.
Because Whats better?
Don’t do anything and Mark and Jack grow farther apart on camera.
Or fix our ship, bring it back to the light, and have Mark and Jack be able to have things normal again.
Well, all hardcore [smut, sex related] shippers and people who believe they’re gay have to stop. (Or keep the smut as far away as possible)
Its not right or polite and Mark and Jack wouldn’t appreciate or even consider you a fan at all if you continue.
Ship Septiplier as a bromance, or in a fluffy cute way, nothing too extreme like sex, or kinky shit.
I know this isn’t how Mark and Jack really act with each other, they most likely do a bunch of shit together off camera where we don’t ruin their fun.
We can fix this ship.
We just have to try.
I want Septiplier to become peaceful and happy again.
Because Jack used to be a fan of Mark. He started his channel because of Mark.
And even though they’re on different parts of the world, Mark managed to find a worthy person on YouTube who derserves so much more. And that was Jack.
They’ve been through a lot, from meeting in person for the first time, becoming great friends, to having a happy little ship.
Lets bring it back to those times. Mark and Jack don’t need to change. We need to.
Lets bring the happiness back in Septiplier.
And ships like Jelix or Pewdieplier, don’t become like this ship, don’t go too far. Don’t make YouTubers become seperate by their own fans.
Mark and Jack have done so much for us, now lets do something for them.
I know we can do this.
Lets fix Septiplier.
Update: For Cringemas I wasn’t able to watch the first part but I saw that Mark and Jack agreed Septiplier as a ship was pretty bad this year in that part.
And that right there is why we need to fix this ship. They know this ship is getting worse.
If 2016 was Septiplier’s bad year, lets makes 2017 Septiplier’s rebirth into the light.
Thanks to everybody who wants this ship better, I appreciate it so much!
Now I know we can really do this.
In 2017, we’ll fix Septiplier. Together.
“Handsome Jack sir?” Rhys asked softly, flush slowly leaving his skin as he began awkwardly fixing his clothes. Rhys fidgeted, doing his best to button his shirt and tuck the fabric back into his pants to hide away the slice of creamy hip and belly. Jack swallowed, throat suddenly dry as he spotted a pattern of blue curving blue ink peeking out from the crooked neckline that Rhys was quick to hide away under a fixed tie, hands soon coming down to self consciously smooth at the wrinkles framing his svelte waist and thighs. Jack blinked, attention darting back to his soul mate’s face, the soft clear skin and high cheekbones against seashell pink lips and big scared doe eyes.
Okay so maybe he could have ended up with a worse match.

It snows in Gibraltar, causing Gabriel to have some magical changes and causing Jack to feel very cold.
They decide to warm up.
In the only way they know how - bad jokes, lots of swearing in English and Spanish, a ton of blankets, and some “fun.”

Please add more I’m suffering bc I can’t think of any
never wears matching socks. Like, even when it’s actually more convenient to grab socks that match, he won’t. “It’s a point of pride now”, he’ll say, with a shrug.
he loves Sour Patch Kids. So much. Whenever Jack’s there while a convenience store is being robbed, she always grabs Ray some Sour Patch Kids
half the time he’s on his DS (which is all the damn time) he’s not even really doing anything, he’s just found that it’s advantageous to him to have people think he’s not listening to conversations
he’s just a giant fucking cat, seriously. Lounges around on the couches all the time, and if you’re on one of them you’d better expect to have a small Puerto Rican draped halfway over you because that’s what will happen
he’s cold all the time, and never goes anywhere without a jacket on his shoulders, even during the hottest parts of the summer (although, when it’s above 90 degrees he’s been known to take his jacket off while outside, but he still takes one everywhere)
declares himself to be an open book (“I’m Puerto Rican, man, we’re not all that complicated”) but everything he does, from choosing not to drink to his carefully cultivated appearance of apathy, is a guard. And it doesn’t work, not really, not in this Crew, but it doesn’t mean he can’t try, and it’s not the way Ryan does it, keeping everything out until one day they just know him, all of him, because Ray, for as long as he could, only showed the parts of himself that he explicitly allowed to be shared.
He’s the best sniper they’ve got, the best Los Santos has got, but the kid’s wicked with a butterfly knife, too. He never uses one if he can help it, but he never quite loses the skill either.
he’s the first one to complain and run away at any sign of Crew Game Night (unless it’s video games, in which case “prepare to be slaughtered”). He usually hides on the roof.
There isn’t a person on Earth with any money at all that eats worse than Ray Narvaez Jr. It amazes Gavin, impresses Michael, and both confuses and terrifies Ryan. Besides special occasions like Christmas or birthdays, not one Crew member can recall him eating a vegetable. He thinks it’s hilarious, especially because he’s still the smallest member of the Crew
Gavin and him are no longer allowed on missions together alone. Michael and Gavin are more dangerous, but Ray is easily bored and Gavin has no impulse control, meaning half the time they don’t do anything they’re supposed to and usually go for ice cream and mayhem instead
steals Ryan’s face paint all the time. Usually ends up making butterflies on his face or painting dicks and various renditions of “420 Blaze” on Gavin’s wall.
he’s pretty bad about showing genuine affection for people- he jokes with them and knows them really well, but it’s hard for him to show that he loves them sometimes. Which they know, and understand, and so the times when he does (through gifts or little smiles or a pat on the back) are special to the whole Crew.
Geoff once walked in on him watching The Real Housewives of Orange County and the look on both of their faces is not one easy to forget. Ray couldn’t look him in the eyes for a week, and made him swear on his life not to tell anyone about this ever please Geoff I’m ruined especially don’t tell Gavin and Michael or I’ll never leave my room again
He loves Aladdin and absolutely despises Snow White.
he hates lobster, a lot. They think he might be afraid of it. None of them are sure. None of them really want to ask.
becomes the biggest pissbaby in the world when he’s sick. Everyone (Ryan) is forced to take care of him, and he needs like seven layers on and chicken noodle soup at all times. Jack usually babysits him when others (Ryan) can’t, and she, unlike others (Ryan), is much more willing to do it.
when he trips on something, usually he just does a somersault on the ground, exclaims “parkour”, and keeps moving like that was his plan all along
he never gets homesick, exactly; he grew up in a one-room apartment with a single mother who worked two jobs. But he misses some of those days: the ones where his mom wouldn’t work and they’d build a fort and stay in it all day, where he’d visit his abuela and she’d cook him all kinds of food. Those days, he gets pretty quiet, stays mostly in his room until someone (Jack or Michael, usually) gets through to him.
he’s the last person in the world you’d expect to know anything about sports (he doesn’t give a shit about football and thought Jack was kidding when she told him that yes, lacrosse is real), and yet he’s oddly passionate about the University of New Mexico’s women’s volleyball team.
He has every line of The Bee Movie memorized. Every. Damn. Line.

Something that I’ve been thinking about since yesterday, that I think people need to remember, is that this is the first proper “drama” that Jack’s community has had to deal with.
(I dont really like the word drama for this, as it’s more of a serious discussion being held, but it’s technically how it would be classified here on tumblr)
But with this in mind, as well as Jack saying in the past that he does get worried of disappointing us, it understandable that he has some regrets with how he first handled the situation. For me, i feel that it’s extremely difficult to fully convey your thoughts in a single video, especially when they’re millions of people who will form their own opinions on it. And while i said this yesterday, I’ll say it again: I am very proud of Jack with how calm, level-headed, and respectful he was with yesterday’s video.
personally, there was probably 2% of the video that I had some different feelings about,and there are a couple of things that he could’ve clarified a small bit more, but overall I feel that it was good for Jack to state that he personally didn’t agree with what Felix did, and that his friend should’ve and could’ve handled it better. But that he still very much stands by Felix and will continue to be there for him, especially now when people are directing very, very horrible things to him and whoever even slightly supports him.
i think one thing that bothers me from the whole situation is how some are having a black and white, vs-type of attitude. from my point of view, Jack in no way backstabbed felix, and he also didnt maliciously call him out either like some seem to be praising him for. Jack’s been close friends with felix for years now, so he obviously wants the best for him, even if it means not always agreeing with him. so while he does criticize him and the whole situation, he isnt treating him any less of a friend than he’s always been. (also, jack has reiterated multiple times how much of a good judge of character he has, so if he honestly didnt like felix to the point of “throwing him under the bus” i dont see how he would’ve had such a good friendship with him for so long)
like jack said, the way this situation was handled is just a bit of a mess that’s currently very difficult to take control of. and whether or not he feels the need to take down the video,or add more to the discussion, i think me and the whole community will trust whatever he decides to do. again, this is the first major disruption we’ve had here, so for that i do think it has been handled a lot better than it had the potential to be. and i hope that once all the communities settle down, we can all learn from this and carry on stronger and better than before.
i’m not much for shipping, like i just generally don’t have an opinion but damn this game. damn it for succeeding at making me have opinions even though i also think anyone would look cute with anyone else
