prompt: Phil is a boarding school student, and he has pretty much everything. His dad owns the school, he’s pretty popular, has the best room, gets all the best treatment – he’s the King. Dan is a cleaner/phil’s personal maid there, and he isn’t as lucky. Some students are assholes to Dan, including Phil at first.
you all so so much for your consistent patience with this. College work (and a
hell of a lot of it) has unfortunately become my priority right now what with
university just around the corner and subsequently I haven’t updated it nearly
as regularly as I would have liked to, but you guys have been so supportive and
understanding and I really cannot thank you enough for that. I’ve missed this
and I’ve missed you. Here’s to more regular updates in the future <3
I’m sorry if this seems a lil wooden I haven’t written this in literal months
so it might take a while for me to adjust to the story and the prose again so
pls bear with me)
emo words over let’s fuckin DO this cue emo dan and a Lot of tension and also
dishonesty because phil’s a fucking idiot
warnings; mentions of violence, smoking
Phil’s been on edge all week.
He can’t remember the last time he relaxed.
Every day, every hour right
from the second his eyes flutter open to the sound of his morning alarm, is
spent with a thudding heart and searching eyes. Even when he’s sleeping he’s tense – his dreams have
spiralled into a whirlwind of almost nightmares,
technicolour episodes crashing into the other in colourful sparks and bursts
that end in cold sweats and aching muscles and whisperings from the boy only
centimetres away from him. And it’s stupid because Phil should be the one
comforting him after a bad night (and
he still tries his best nonetheless), but he can’t deny there’s nothing quite
like the feeling of Dan’s gentle lips on his forehead at four a.m., the sound
of his voice whispering reassurances with his arms draped over Phil’s waist
like a protective shield.
He hasn’t seen Liam since he
grabbed at any excuse and all but ran
out of Noah’s room upon his discovery that no, Phil doesn’t still have a tag,
and he’s scared. He’s so fucking scared.
And yeah, it was a very stupid
move to dodge the bullet in the way he did, to fling himself out of the
situation without even stopping to at least
try and explain himself, but he couldn’t help it. He doesn’t think he can
face sitting through another one of Liam’s explosions without crying or running
for cover, and he just can’t look that evil glint in the eye. Not since he saw
the very same one glittering menacingly when Liam looked at Dan, the daggering
stare boring into the other boy. The image is still printed deep in Phil’s
mind, resurfacing during the darkest part of the night.
That’s cowardly. Phil doesn’t
“Are you sure you-“
“Phil,” Dan sighs. “For the
final time, I’m fine.”
“Honestly,” he insists, brown
eyes shining. He’s trying, with one hand, to unwrap the chocolate bar Phil had
insisted upon him. “It was just a bump, that’s all. The paths were really icy
“Why didn’t you tell me
sooner?” Phil sighs, tapping Dan’s bandage patch delicately. It sits just under
am i the only one who finds it disgusting that dan always uses racist fake accents, uses the term "brown people" and makes fun of trans ppl, like he really doesn't deserve all the love he gets bc honestly he's just as bad as jennifer lawrence
I debated answering this or not. It feels a bit like baiting to me, but maybe it isn’t. Dan is by no means a perfect person. I don’t think he’s a hateful person or does things from a malicious point of view. There are several things he could be more educated on and try-harder on.
For example, you mentioned him making fun of trans people. That was something he was corrected on and has since been trying to learn more about and how he can be better about it. Granted he’s a little older so he isn’t as used to things as some of the younger grumps BUT I also don’t like to lean on that as an excuse because Brian is older and nowhere near as messy.
My point is he has room for improvement (like everyone does) and he does try to get better on certain things. I do wish the vague racism would cool down, that’s a constant wish for me when it comes to them tbh.
People do tend to put Dan on a pedestal where nothing he does is bad and he’s a perfect and innocent boy, but he isn’t. He fucks up too and has bad moments too and we can accept that and love him for the good moments and try to help him and educate him through the bad or we can turn away all together, it depends on the person and their point of view.
(I’m assuming this is the post you are referencing. Correct me if I’m wrong)
Nothing happened today. The post was from Thursday/Friday after Dan posted isg 9.
(if you don’t know about the drama) A few weeks ago in a liveshow, Dan hinted that his next video would be some thing “cheeky” and something that people have been waiting for for a long time (full quote here). The phandom began to speculate that it would be a coming out video. In his next liveshow he stated that he decided to postpone the previously mentioned video because he wanted to make a funny video to distract him from other things going on. Many people in the phandom completely ignored this and continued to hype up the first video and act like it would be his next video. This caused a lot of misinformation to be spread.
The combination of overhyping, misinformation, and speculation caused many people to believe that Dan’s next video would definitely, 100% be a coming out video. People started to treat the theories like facts. People also seemed to collectively forget that even if it is a coming out video, it would definitely not be his next video.
This all built up until Thursday when Dan uploaded isg 9. People were very disappointed. (This is where the real drama starts) Instead of accepting that they were misinformed and that their theory was wrong, a select group of people decided to attack Dan on twitter and accuse him of lying to them. They started saying that isg 9 was stupid. People accused Dan of lying and overhyping a video (when in reality it was all of them doing the overhyping). People also started to try and force him to make a coming out video. I even saw a couple people tweet they would would unsubscribe if it isn’t his next video.
Basically, people were being hateful towards Dan, were acting like his videos aren’t good if they aren’t phan related, and were pressuring him to do something that he might not be comfortable with. Dan replied to several people and he was visibly upset. People were crossing the line when it comes to shipping/speculation. They were being rude, invasive, and disrespectful. It was very reminiscent of 2012 in my opinion.
Summary: Dan makes a huge decision about him and Phil’s relationship.

“Thanks for watching, guys. See you next Tuesday!” Dan says, ending his weekly liveshow on Younow. He doesn’t leave his room to eat his late dinner like he usually would, though. He stays in his desk chair, thinking.
hey dan usually follows blogs that people tweet at him after his liveshows so if you spam him on twitter next tuesday he might follow u !
tbh someone else also told me this i just always feel like he won’t see it bc i have more followers on here which is literally not true? thanks for this reminder tho i now have two people telling me to do that so i’m going to increase my efforts on twitter now
i see u have a lot of opinions on dan so what's ur opinion on dan wearing makeup? like maybe him wearing dark lipsticks and eye shadow and stuff like that
bless the fuck up,,, dan wearing dark matte lipstick will be the death of me what the fuck, dan in actual makeup will singlehandedly destroy my ass okay?? i might cry it’s such a good concept and i want it to happen so badly :((((
