excerpt: they have the coming out conversation over skype, four months in. phil says, i just wanna show you off, and dan says, you can. they talk about work experience, after, and kind of forget.
note: my coming out headcanon - or, to be more accurate, the lack thereof -
put into 1.5k words. there are a hundred versions of their potential coming out and none of them fits inside my head. there is a reason for this.

1. they have the
coming out conversation over skype, four months in. phil says, i just
