YouTuber and Twitch steamer PaladinAmber has released her most embarrassing video yet, leaving her red in the face with cringe as she gingerly reads her old One Direction fan fiction, from the solitude of her car.

On October 27, Amber was mortified to discover her old ‘fanfic’ in a 2006 email she had sent, revealing on Twitter that if she could rack up 1,000 retweets, she would do a ‘dramatic reading’ of her work.

Although one fan suggested she read it aloud on stream, Amber explained that the content of her smutty fan fiction was so explicit it would likely land her a community guidelines strike on Twitch.

However, she wasn’t going to avoid the embarrassment altogether and opted for a YouTube version of her 2006 One Direction fan fiction.

So as to prevent any chance of anyone hearing her, she opted to record the video from her car, as the 23-year-old Australian got inside the mind of her younger self, deep in her One Direction obsession.

Before diving in, she had to address her mother directly, instructing her to stop watching the video immediately, because they really don’t need to have “this conversation.”

Her story revolved around a romantic trip to Paris, where “the boys” (i.e. global superstars, One Direction) were performing.

Arriving in the imaginary hotel, Harry Styles himself arrived unannounced, and the pair quickly got down to business, with Amber explaining he “was grinding up against me”.

Things continued on in an increasingly smutty tale, as Amber’s struggled to fight through the cringe.

Twitter: PaladinAmberAmber has enjoyed massive growth on Twitch in late 2019.

Despite the cringe, PaladinAmber’s willingness to put herself out there has certainly helped her exponential growth, particularly on Twitch.

With less than 1,000 followers in July of 2019, her channel has blown up in recent months, hitting 60,000 in October, and on track to potentially hit 100,000 before the year is out.

NickEh30’s latest Fortnite tournament was quite a spectacle, but it was tainted by an alleged stream sniper, who was reported and subsequently banned despite maintaining his innocence.

Nick ‘NickEh30’ Amyoony has been hosting a series of Fortnite tournaments in recent months. The latest one was the NickEh30 Cup. It gave players a chance to compete against some of the game’s biggest names in the scene for a chance to win $10,000.  

It was all positive for the most part. A lesser-known professional Fortnite player named  Crumble managed to impress and take home the prize. However, the tournament was marred with some unfortunate stream sniping drama.

NickEh30 Fortnite stream sniping ban

In the final match, several other players landed on NickEh30, including a Twitch streamer named ArchieFN. He eliminated NickEh30 and danced on his body for the better part of 30 seconds.

NickEh30 was less than impressed and looked disappointed and deflated on stream. It was a stark contrast to his usual upbeat and positive vibe. He was convinced ArchieFN was stream sniping and hopped into the replay mode to report him and a few others.

Fortunately, Epic Games responded almost instantly and banned ArchieFN for 24 hours as soon as he returned to the lobby. You can watch a full recap of the incident below and form your own opinion.

However, ArchieFN is maintaining his innocence. He claimed he wasn’t stream sniping at all. Instead, he said he wanted to “contest someone who wasn’t a tier-one pro” and decided to land on NickEh30 after seeing him land in the same spot during a previous game.

Still, he apologized for what he did and acknowledged that some might find it “scummy.” Sadly, that didn’t stop him from copping a bit of abuse, some of which was needless and extreme.

“Why am I waking up to 600 DMs telling me to kill myself?” he said. “I’m 20, and it doesn’t bother me at all, but the majority of the community is quite younger … you really need to think about what you’re saying to people on the internet.”

In the end, ArchieFN’s Fortnite ban won’t last more than a day. It isn’t too long to wait if he’s innocent, but it’s enough for a wake-up call if he’s guilty.

Either way, The NickEh30 was a success despite the stream sniping drama, and a rightful victor was still crowned.
