I wonder what percentage if the particularly Slash-if-you-squint things Jesse says are aimed at us. He knows TB shuts down if he verbally says who exactly he’s playing to, so the only way to get suggestive conversations that last are through a knowing silence. He’s said before in a little conversation that he was giving the slash fans material, and though it was referring to only one flirty comment he made, we know he’s not beyond it.
How long do you think the Yogscast and the others are going to be putting out videos? Until they’re old men? Like really really old? Do you think they’re going to be a succession of yogscast, totalbiscuit, omfgcata heirs? Like a hierarchical line of royal heirs. Like princes and princesses. Children of youtube gods. Whoa.
I can already see TBs heir, off in the distance. He has the same attitude, but has yet to come out of his teenage rebellion. It’s fascinating to watch him. Not yet spotted the next gen for the rest of them, but the cynicism is strong in this one…
Every time I see a fanart for TB or Jesse that’s outside the crew, I think of what would happen if they joined us. I look out and see potential members everywhere, waiting to get lost in our labyrinth…
I’ve found almost every day I recall the exact steps we took to get here. Its surreal how things have come together like this, but not in a bad way. I started watching youtube videos because I was bored and lonely, and now I have amazing friends.
Our motif is tophats and fancy things, long before our TB phase. Fancypants are a thing. There are people who watch us from the shadows now, and are entertained. Jesse gave us more acknowledgement than I had ever previously thought possible. I’m surrounded by people that appreciate my ideas, regardless of silliness, even in non fic or picture form. I may not have been known for as long as I’ve been following, but I have memories of when this all started threading together into the mad web it is now.
I-i think a sane person just followed me. I suppose if you’re on Tumblr and know about TB, you’re bound to brush shoulders with the CaF crew eventually… eh well, the best way to learn is to observe. Brace yourself.
“TotalBiscuit and Jesse joined together. It was cold and wet in the weird shack the found… it was also explosive. As was the night…!” -Jesse Cox
How have we not done anything for this yet. He even said he expected the fans to follow up, and I was half expecting a really corny fic to go with it, but nothing came of it. Anyone with skill in the crack fic department, as I am literally too serious to write crack, please consider remedying this.
I know that TB hates us, and that’s not going to change, but I’m fairly sure some part of him would smirk if he knew just how many extremist fanbois jimmies we’ve rustled. The people who are disturbed but say nothing, or who hear about it but don’t seek it out, those are more than fine in my books. But the ones that would send hate?
visions of the CaF crew becoming a movie or play, perhaps a rock opera, if we go the musical route. (it’s not impossible, the captain sings after all). It could damn well be the next rocky horror, but with hats.
And it comes tearing down the corner, the bi-annual “you need to get your crap together” crackdown, where my internet is restricted until I show good grades or they forget. Sad that these things have lost their meaning in the long haul, but there’s only so seriously one can take a “this is it” talk when you’ve heard it times before.
Won’t be around for indefinite periods of time, don’t kill eachother~
Browsed the TotalBiscuit tag for the first time in a while, and I have come to the conclusion that we are damn difficult to miss. We can be seen from space on that thing, Fic just lying around like nothin’s goin’ on, subtext quotes here and there. I had forgotten how empty it would be around here if not for the crew.
I feel bad for Genna, if she checks this tab regularly.
We have no dark intent, only boredom and strange hobbies ;_;!
any solid facts on this, or just the same general feeling we all have on this? XD (I know what you mean though, I totally feel like he’s constantly watching us @___@ )
Nothing new, it’s just strange to think that while we’re sneaking around following him, he’s sneaking back around and following us, in a way. No guarantee he knows many details but if here were to, it gives a strange mental image of sneaky little people in a game of cat and mouse where neither one is certain of their role.
Looking at the comments on Jesse’s facepaint picture, looks like we weren’t the only ones staring at the image for longer than healthy. Some of the comments, though… I just want to pick some of them up and take them to tumblr and settle them down in their own little blog for us to listen to and talk with forevers and evers and evers ;-;.
Visions of the adventures Cat eared TB and puppy Jesse could have have been swirling through my head all day. The dynamic is just so perfect, with the stereotype cracked in places but kept good in others. He would hate himself for his cat features but Jesse would both distract and bring his hate elsewhere, aside from a few emotional moments where TB goes all sad and Jesse with his puppylike playfulness tries to cheer him up. I imagine all this to be in a cartoonified style though, because doing it full on paints an entirely different mood… heh.
Now that TB can only look at videogames as work, I wonder what other hobbies he could pick up? Can you imagine him watching old anime out of reminiscence, but then watching newer shows, and slowly becoming a closet otaku. Because I can, and it’s amusing as hell.
