otp what are you doing with my heart

Called It

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.

  • Yuu: Hey Mika, what do you like about me?
  • Mika: what makes you think I like you?
  • Yuu: you diary is full of my name surrounded by a lot of small hearts
  • Mika: I-I don't have a diary!
  • Yuu: *opening the diary* "dear diary, today Yuu-chan said he was too busy looking at me to see anything else. Does that mean he thinks I'm good looking? Could this mean he likes me back?"
  • Mika: WHERE DID YOU GET THAT?
  • Yuu: Shinoa gave it to me
  • Mika: why?!
  • Yuu: something about her otp being canon
  • Mika: I KNEW HUMANS WERE NOT TO BE TRUSTED
Drunk horny Tsukki...
  • Tsukkishima: *calls Yamaguchi* Raar
  • Yamaguchi: Tsukki? *yawns* What happen? Is three in the morning
  • T: I'm a hungrrrarrrry dinosaur and I'll eat you up
  • Y: ... Are you drunk?
  • T: maybe... but I'm still gonna eat your little c...
  • Y: STOP! I'm hanging up.
  • T: NO RAR I'll go to your place
  • Y: Don't you dare
  • T: But you are always calling my name it'll be the same just with me inside you
  • Y: Tsukki stop! Too much for my heart
  • T: Tsk, okay... but you have to promise to come to my place in the morning with a nurse suit
  • Y: I'll go, but no nurse suit. Good night, Tsukki
  • T: Wait!
  • Y: What?
  • T: I love you
  • Y: Shut up Tsukki! *violently hangs up*
  • Person: why are you always checking your otp's tag. I swear you do it multiple times a day, every day.
  • Me: Haha, they are just really cute ya know.
  • Me on the inside: because no matter how impractical it is I constantly wonder if they are finally cannon. No matter how many times I tell myself shipping is just for fun and none of its real there is still a ray of hope lighting up my dead heart, a ray of hope saying 'hey, what if they are real?' So every damn day I check that tag because, what if it finally happened? What if they finally cannoned? I don't want to miss it. I have to be there. I have to see it.

I don’t hate Jensen. I do not think he’s homophobic. But I am hurt and angry.
I had 2 of my OTP’s crashed in less than 24 hours.
I really had faith in both Sherlock and spn to finally do something this year in the new seasons.
I am so sick and tired of queerbaiting. And so fucking tired of all the hate we get from bibros and Wincest shippers. Like, wtf?! Do you really enjoy twisting the knife? Making us suffer even more? What the hell is wrong with you?! At least the Sherlock fandom was nice to the broken-hearted Johnlock shippers.
Both these ships are important to me, they are my escape from the real world and I feel strongly about them, especially about Destiel.
And to have all of my hope crashed and spit on, it hurts.
Well at least I still have Viktuuri and Phan :/

BOOKS MEME | (5/9) nine otps.
Feyre Archeron and Rhysand from A court of thorns and roses by Sarah J. Maas.

My heart stumbled a beat. I didn’t know what to do with my arms, my legs, my face. I gulped down the rest of my wine and discarded the glass beside the bed, steeling my spine as I said, “I’m thinking that I can’t stop thinking about you. And that it’s been that way for a long while. Even before I left the Spring Court. And maybe that makes me a traitorous, lying piece of trash, but—
It doesn’t,” he said, his face solemn.

Karmagisa Drabble

I did a rewatch of Assassination Classroom, and decided to write something for my OTP.  Let me know what you all think. I might make it into a story or something if people like it.  It takes place right after the Takaoka stuff on the Island Vacation Arc.


My heart was racing. He did it.  Nagisa did it.  He took down that bastard Takaoka.  My hand gripped my chest, attempting to keep my pounding heart inside my chest. Adrenaline rushed through my veins. Why?  This wasn’t my fight.  Nagisa. It dawned on me at that moment. Anger, Fear, Relief, Pride, so many emotions swarmed my head, completely overwhelming it.  Why?!  Why do I feel like this?!  I fell to my knees, hand still holding my chest; my chest felt like it was going to explode.  I closed my eyes, and filled my lungs up with air, hoping to calm this pounding down.  Why Nagisa?! Why did you have to be so reckless?! You could have died!  My eyes shot open.  I realized something at that exact moment.  I knew that moment why I felt all these drowning emotions.

lit otps ≡ to all the boys i’ve loved before series: lara jean song & peter kavinsky
“In the contract we said we wouldn’t break each other’s hearts. What if we do it again?”
Fiercely he says, “What if we do? If we’re so guarded, it’s not going to be anything. Let’s do it fucking for real, Lara Jean. Let’s go all in. No more contract. No more safety net. You can break my heart. Do whatever you want with it.”
I put my hand to his chest, over his heart. I can feel it beating. I let my hand fall away. His heart is mine, just mine. I believe it now. Mine to protect and care for, mine to break.
I know now that I don’t want to love or be loved in half measures. I want it all, and to have it all, you have to risk it all.
So I take Peter’s hand; I put it on my heart. I tell him, “You have to take good care of this, because it’s yours.

(  otp name masterlist ☼ )

i know how difficult it can be to come up with an otp name sometimes. and, in result, i have decided to make a masterlist containing over #200 otp tags. they’re all song lyrics from bands/singers like halsey, years & years, the front bottoms, haim, taylor swift, etc., but i’ve rearranged some so that they make more sense. i hope you enjoy and please like or reblog if you find this useful at all !!

What if Person A’s brother/sister/best friend gave Person B the whole ‘break their heart and I break you’ talk. Except they just got their wisdom teeth taken out and desided it was the perfect time to do it so it just sounds like ‘hurt A……the whole damn truck goes up…….I swear on my mum…..’ B is trying to take them seriously and A is laughing as they film it.

The Beach - Jyn & Cassian’s Ultimate OTP Song

Okay, so this is The Beach by The NBHD (I’m sure many of you know it). Well, I was just listening to it again while daydreaming about rebelcaptain, as you do, when it struck me just how perfectly this song fits them. Here’s why:

1) It’s literally called the beach. I repeat: IT IS LITERALLY CALLED THE BEACH!!! oh would u look at that, i’m already dying

2) “if i told you that i loved you, tell me what would you say? if i told u that i hated you, would you go away? now i need ur help with everything that i do, i don’t wanna lie I’ve been relying on you. fallin’ again, I need a pick-me-up. I’ve been calling you ‘friend’, I might need to give it up…” THIS IS LITERALLY THE SONG, THIS IS HOW IT STARTS, WE’RE NOT EVEN TO THE CHORUS YET

3) THE CHORUS: “i’m sick and tired too. I can admit, I am not fireproof - I feel it burning me, I feel it burning you. I hope I don’t murder me. I hope I don’t burden you. If I do, if I do…”

4) THE BRIDGE: “swim with me. I think I could see the beach. I know what’s underneath, I need you here with me, but we’re out in the open. swim with me. I think I could see the beach… just don’t look underneath us. I need u here with me, but we’re out in the open.” (like the symbolism here alone, people, c’mon)

5) IT IS LITERALLY CALLED “THE BEACH”

anyway now I need someone much more talented than me to make one of those shipping videos with this song.

the end. 

It is has a meaning when you can stop the game in the right moment and it looks like your OTP became canon.
But when you didn’t mean to do it and you just wanted to go to the toilet, then come back and THEN have a freaking heart attack because you realized just NOW what it looks like on the screen…well, let’s just say that I cried and laughed. And then I had the worst fangirl attack in my entire life.
Fuck.

I’M SCREAMING SEND HELP

I DON’T EVEN KNOW HOW TO FUNCTION RIGHT NOW THE THAT EPISODE HIT ME RIGHT IN THE FEELS

first of all, the vigilante plot line. James you do you and Wynn is awesome doing what ever he does because Wynn is the bomb diggity. I just want more time for kara x mon-el because I’m a selfish mofo

WHAT A TIME TO BE ALIVE AM I RIGHT?! I mean the first full part of the episode I was frustrated because I just wanted her to save Mon-el but the female dog Lena’s mom had to go and hurt both of my precious supers. 

BUT THEN, the end of the episode comes and BAMM Jeremiah is alive and well and helps them escape. I did not see that coming. While they were in the cages I was honestly so sad that they were captured but they were having a heart to heart so I was kind of happy (?) is that wrong?

BUT THEN, the very very end when mon-el started looking at her like that and asking questions about how “mating” on earth worked I actually got up off the couch and danced around screaming while waving my blanket in the air.

then Wynn tells him that they actually chose on earth and mon-el goes, “has Kara chosen yet?” and james is all like “no um” and then james is all like “why are you asking?” and then mon-el is like “just studying the customs of earth” and then I was like “BOY I CAN SEE RIGHT THROUGH YOU YOU AIN’T JUST ASKING FOR SHITS AND GIGGLES, YOU LIIIIKE HER!” and he was looking at her with that shit eating grin like ‘wow that girl is amazing’ and I d i e d (side note that was not the actual conversation, i might have stretched just a bit)

it’s going to happen guys, I can feel it and I AM READY 

I AM SO MOTHER EFFIN HAPPY. that episode just made my night! thanks cw.
