Summary: Despite the fact that Phil is engaged and Dan is trying his hardest not to linger over old memories, both of them somehow manage to find themselves dancing together to Interrupted by Fireworks in the lounge at two in the morning.
Genre: bittersweet, fluff, angst
Warnings: angst, swearing
Inspired by this beautiful scene (spoilers for fic)
A/N: The title is based off a really vague quote I apologise. So I don’t know what this is, I’m not sure whether I really like it or not but I’m going to post it anyway because the scene that its based off is absolutely heart-wrenching and I need some way to deal with my emotions.
Dan knows he should refuse, they’ve spent ages, years building up their carefully mapped out boundaries, Phil’s getting married in a week and Dan is trying his hardest not to linger over lost causes. But despite his mind screaming at him, Dan takes Phil’s hand and lets him pull him to his feet, because try as he might, Dan can’t ever refuse anything when it’s Phil who’s asking.
