(Yes, I know that this is pinof 7 friendship yoga)
So, this killed me. But not just because I ship Phan, but because of something else. The first gif shows Dan reaching out and struggling to grab a hold of Phils hand. But then it shows Phil reaching out and their fingers locking together. And then it shows them clinging on to each other, trusting that the other will keep them steady. It’s like 2009. Dan was reaching out for someone to help him and give him love, and then he met Phil. Phil talked to him, brought him to Manchester, moved in with him and made a life for him. He was there with Dan through existential crisis’, the university struggle and just hatred towards himself. When the grip looked like it was about to fall apart again(2012) they still managed to hang on. And look at where they are now. Dan is a confident, beautiful and intelligent person who has his equally as incredible best friend next to him in life, and they’re not letting go. They have a book, a tour, over 8 million phans between them; they’ve been on the radio, on the tv and they still have so much going for them. Phil Lester, took in a broken human and made him into something amazing.
