Okay, part 2 of your questions! (Part one here)

Question 3) In the Family Friendly/Dystopean Evil YouTube inc, what happens to the channels that are already family friendly like Nerdy Nummies and Game Theory?

In this au, if your family friendly, you’re still given a collar, but you’re left relatively alone. They can still get shocked, but they’re not going to be tortured or brainwashed if they’re following the rules. Which leaves the people who know what’s happening in the YouTube world ( the ones who are friends or family with the ones being tortured) but are in a position where they aren’t as monitored. And I already made a post about Marzia being the leader of the Rebellion. But the Rebellion is quiet and secretive. It can’t even be known that there IS a rebellion. And it’s almost primarily made of family friendly channels that contribute their skills. Their collars have been hacked and altered so they can take them off and momentarily turn off the built in voice recording. I wanted to make bigger posts on them but yes, Rosanna and the GT team are both on the Rebellion. Sneak peek.
