So these are Dan’s facial expressions when Phil talks about chocking and then opens a button… the fuck.

Also I’ll start thinking about what my life has come to right now.

Sometimes I think back to what my life was like in 2009, and how dan and phil were JUST meeting for the first time and I didn’t even know about it. I was completely oblivious to the fact that these two British boys were forming a friendship that was only going to grow so much stronger over the years, and even more oblivious to the fact that these two boys were going to change not only my life, but literally millions of other people’s lives as well. When I think back to 2009 it feels unreal, because these two boys barely even knew each other, and now it feels like there was NEVER a point in which they weren’t a part of each other’s lives.

Black Mirror: Playtest (2016) dir. Dan Trachtenberg

What, a girl never beat you at Street Fighter?

Can you imagine if dan and Phil willingly kissed on camera?
I think about this all the time.
Say if it was pinof for example. - “I dare you two to kiss”
And they’re like “alright” and it probably wouldn’t be like a quick peck. It’s been a long awaited moment. They talked about it. Like it’s a consensual kiss from between the two. And Phil’s hand cups Dan’s face, and their heads know where to go and they make it clear. Visible.
A Well known going-to-break-the-internet-for-days kiss.
Like what happens after that?
They don’t have to say they’re dating because chances are they won’t. They still won’t have to, it’ll just lead a whole new plethora of questions. Will they smile after it happens? Laugh? Look at the camera and say “yes that just happened” and move on?
Will the earth stop?
Would it change anything?
We’ll probably all gasp so hard our lungs will fall out of our backs.


It’s actually sad how much thought I’ve put into this I’m just gonna crawl back into my hole now.
