BMC YOUTUBER AU
LETS DO THIS
(I know there’s this amazing ask blog ( @ask-gaymermell ) and while this is separate from theirs (and I kinda came up with this idea before I knew about the blog) I still highly recommend that way more than these silly ideas.)
•Starts out doing EXTREME stunts on vine of all places.
•They are freakin INSANE OK?
•Jake is the one who films it
•He does get pretty popular
•A little bit before Vine dies, Rich moves to YouTube and makes his videos more of showing him doing the set ups and showing what goes on for a stunt.
•They are still really reckless but that’s what everyone is there for.
•It’s soon coming up on the anniversary of him doing stunts for 3 maybe 4 years and he wants to do something EPIC
•Something that has NEVER been done before. And he hyped it up months in advance and his audience is mega hyped!!
•Until Rich suddenly disappeares
•For like three months, people thinking that he just… quit.
•Until Rich finally comes and uploads a video.
•It’s really vague, something happened with his stunt. Involving a fire. Him being in the hospital. And a friend getting hurt as well.
•Rich says that he can’t do stunts anymore, and that he doesn’t even know what to do anymore. YouTube was the way he made a living. But he doesn’t know what to do.
•"So… this might be goodbye. I’m sorry everyone.“
•There is a lot of people who felt bad for Rich and many who thought he was being a baby. This incident ended up becoming huge, news articles putting up stories, information being revealed.
•After 6 months, Rich appears again in a new channel. A vlogging channel of all things.
•Rich confesses that he had never truly showed himself to his audience before (for some reason…). And he had "edited” his lisp out of his videos. But he said that from then on, he was going to be honest and true.
•People were a bit salty about him still not doing stunts. But to Rich it didn’t matter, soon he admitted that he was having more fun doing this rather than stunts.
•Soon after a couple of months on the first day of June, he comes out as Bi. Telling a story that he had never thought of guys before and when he did he denied any sort of attraction. Until after the fire, when he decided to be true to himself.
•He does make an icon out of that, no longer being known as the “stunt guy” but the “bi boi” which made Rich laugh.
•Not soon after did Rich introduce his best friend (soon later to be boyfriend, but I’ll explain that later) Jake. Who had been shown in videos before but never introduced.
•But Rich always kept a jacket on. And wore makeup on his face.
•Many people would ask about what happened but Rich never wanted to talk about it. Many theories about it arose about it.
•Until on its anniversary, where Rich decided to tell how he was “convinced” to do this big fire stunt. Even though Jake and others had warned him.
•Rich then took off his jacket and his makeup to show his burns.
•In the middle of the video Jake had to come in and help Rich talk about what had happened.
•Jake had saved his life, but had broken both of his legs in the process. Jake still had to wear braces on his legs at the moment.
•But it was getting better. Rich and Jake were often considered the “power couple” of YouTube. Despite the fact that Jake didn’t have a channel. Or did he?
•Loves music, so much. And puts his music on YouTube for fun.
•This is even before Rich had moved to YouTube or had even gotten big on Vine.
•He never shows his face, he makes his own art for the song and has it play in the background.
•He wasn’t popular at all. No one knew about his channel, not even Rich. But Jake rarely uploaded anyway. Only like one song ever couple of months.
•Jake wrote about being popular, about having fun, about summer, and about school.
•One day… he wrote about love.
•It was after the fire and Rich was in a full body cast. Him in a wheelchair. Rich had confessed everything to Jake. The Squip. The stunts. Everything.
•It only took a month for Jake to fall for him and write a song about it.
•and it EXPOLDED
•Which Jake didn’t even realize until Rich came in happier than he had been in weeks saying “Jakey D! You gotta check this out!”
•When Jake heard his own voice, he was shocked. He then checked later to see that it had over 1 million views.
•Jake started getting emails, asking to sign on. But Jake denied them all. Music was hobby, and Jake didn’t really want it to be more than that.
•But he continued to write music, but now. He wrote about his family. About being alone. About drugs. Each one getting more and more popular.
•And Jake honestly couldn’t believe it. Especially when his best friend / crush became his biggest fan.
•He never planned on telling anyone. But one day as Rich had one of his worst days in awhile. Jake wrote another song. For him.
•But instead of uploading it first. He came into Rich’s room with his guitar. And he sang.
•Rich originally thought it was just another one of his songs. Playing from his phone. But he didn’t recognize the song. So when he looked up at Jake, he was shocked.
•Jake sung about all the things he loved about Rich. How despite everything they went through he still loved him. Jake poured his heart and soul into it.
•when he was done, Rich kneeled on his bed grabbed him by the shirt into a big kiss. Didn’t really matter that the big guitar was in the way.
•Jake didn’t reveal himself as the mysterious artist for awhile. But the inside jokes that Jake and Rich had may have hinted at it.
•Jeremy was told by Rich, who he had met in passing. Recognizing him on the spot. To get a Squip, and that’s how Rich could do all that crazy shit he did.
•Jeremy wanted to be cool like that. Have fans. Michael already had his own gaming channel, but Jeremy wanted to be better.
•The Squip had decided that Jeremy should ditch the gaming and do challenge videos instead. All the popular stuff. Even though Jeremy didn’t really care much for it.
•Soon Jeremy was starting to do more dangerous stuff. Talking about sensitive topics.
•Michael tried to talk to him, but Jeremy just said that he was jealous that he was getting more subs than him.
•The Squip is about to make him do something really crazy when Jeremy finds out what happened to Rich. So he gets Michael’s help and shuts down the Squip.
•Jeremy then makes an apology video about the sensitive stuff he said. And deletes his channel. Making anew as a Lets Player.
•And he and Michael start dating.
•Michael had been doing Lets Plays for YEARS!!!
•He loves it a lot.
•But as Jeremy ignores him, his motivation for videos slip.
•When they have a fight where Jeremy just thinks Michael is jealous. Michael does have a panic attack and just can’t make videos because of it.
•Once it’s all resolved. Michael apologizes and promises to put more effort into his videos.
•Michael is also a big figure in the LGTB+ community (like Rich) having no shame in admitting since the very beginning.
•Once Jeremy and him start dating they start a collab channel that is them either playing games. Doing funny stuff. And vlogs.
•They are kinda of like the Dan and Phil of this universe.
•They have people guessing for months if they are dating or not.
•Till at Vidcon they are doing a panel and someone just yells at them to kiss.
•Which they do, to the surprise of MANY!
•"Man, I was having fun teasing everyone though.“
"Think of it this way, now you can kiss me anytime you want.”
AND THATS ALL I HAVE GOOD NIGHT
