HOT OCTOBER - Brighton, England

Crowds of sun seekers fill the beach on October 1 in Brighton, England. The U.K.’s national weather service the Met Office says Saturday’s temperature reached 85.8 F (29.9 C) at Gravesend in southeast England. That is the highest October temperature since records began a century ago, beating the previous high of 84.9 F (29.4 C) reached on Oct. 4, 1985. (Peter MacDiarmid / Getty Images / AP)

SE17 - Walworth

The Aylesbury Estate, one of London’s biggest housing estates - which is most likely going to be demolished in order to leave space to some more soulless luxury 1-2-3 bedroom flats that no one will be able to afford. Oh dear, poor ol’ London. 

the fan analysis

so i was watching dan’s 2013 videos the other day, and something caught my eye in “How NOT to Stay Cool” - 19th July 2013 and you see this fan? (he’s holding it rn) and i noticed something he said. at 3:57 he says “yeah thats great at night when I’m trying to sleep next to it” (referring to the beeping noise the fan makes)

i then remembered something i saw in one of cat’s vlogs, “LONDON BOUND: Day 1” - 15th august 2013. and yep, at 5:53, right on the bed stand, it’s the same fan. and since i live in the south east of england as well, i can confirm that it was still as boiling hot in august 2013 as it was in july 2013. why would dan have gotten rid of his fan just so phil can be cooler? (unless they were sleeping in the same room YOU SEE WHAT I'M GETTING AT HERE)

moments earlier, at 5:50, we hear cat say “i don’t know if i should film in here..” and quietly in the background we just about hear phil say “yeah you can yeah” if you go watch the video, he almost seems unsure.

*this is the point I go creepy stalker mode*

i had a poke around the videos and, isn’t the fan on the opposite side of the bed to which phil sleeps on? we see this in all the day in the life videos, this scene is from “A Day in the Life of Dan and Phil in London!” at 0:11.

later in the same video, dan goes to wake dan up.

(this is at 0:35) first thing i notice, his water glass on his bedside table is basically full - it hasn’t been touched *side note* who actually wakes up in this position?

a few shots later, we get a clearer, wider shot view of his bed. look at how his bed sheets appear. the bottom sheet only has lines where his body is pressing down on the mattress, not the wrinkles you would get had he been in that bed all night. his pillow is also hardly touched at all, the only creases are where his head has just been rested down.

if he had been sleeping in that bed, surely his duvet would also be spread wider over the bed, the pillow would be flatter and the other pillow wouldn’t be quite so fluffed up.

unless he had been completely still on his back all night, it appears that he did not sleep in this bed.

ohh, he’s on the wrong side of the bed as well…

“I Can’t Sleep” 30th august 2012 - 1:45 - right hand side

“How To Get Out of Bed” 28th January 2014 - 3:47 - right hand side, pillows and sheet messed up from moving around to film (pretty sure people move around in the night as well? well apparently not according to dan…)

so there we go! that analysis over… in conclusion, it seems as if they had been sharing a bed, going from dates and positioning of the fan, it just adds up..

*disclaimer* i am just suggesting that they sleep in the same bed. i am not claiming phan is real (as much as i wish it was)

ending thoughts

at the beginning of “A Day in the Life of Dan and Phil in London!” phil seems far too awake to have just woken up. he is talking loudly and clearly, eyes wide open and only squints and yawns when he says he has just woken up (i’m ngl that yawn is so fake, go watch 0:02) and then his glasses are conveniently placed on his lap… all prepared…

ohh and when he goes to wake dan up, we can hear dan’s voice very clearly through the door, he sounds awake enough… (compare to his waking up voice in ditl in manchester for reference) his eyes too are wide open and as i said earlier, who really wakes up and stays in this position until your friend comes and wakes you up?

and one final thing, phil says the time he wakes up is 10:30am, when him, dan and chris are in the pub, dan say’s phil put the cat sticker on his arm at 10am… i know it is a general time and there is a large margin of error, but it’s just a suggestion!

*edit* ohh and one last thing! thank you to the amazing ’thepurplehedgehogs’ for pointing out that his hair is already straightened and styled in the ditl. much love tyvm
