Summary: It’s late at night and Dan’s having trouble sleeping due to the fact that he’s been hearing noises coming from the closet, so he wakes Phil up and asks him to check it for him, only they find an unexpected surprise.
dan knew he was getting a new neighbour but he wasn’t expecting their first meeting to involve the guy’s giant shiba inu running into his apartment and tackling him to the floor. fate works in mysterious ways, though, he supposes.
Summary: Phil spends his time chasing rain and thinking. It isn’t until days where even he doesn’t want to be caught in the swirling weather outside, that Phil is forced inside to a coffee shop with a seat perfect for watching the weather outside and the cute barista that begins to call him Rain Boy. (Or in which Dan is sad and Phil loves the rain.)
Summary: Dan had always loved the rain. He loved the way it started out gradually, a few gentle patters on the sidewalk, and then suddenly it was a downpour, forming rapids rushing down the sidewalks and ravines in the neighbor’s begonias. He loved the way it soaked through his clothes, running down his hair and washing away every thought clouding his head like white noise, enveloping him in a gentle embrace until his Mum would call him inside.
