Insecure - Him

A/n: Hello everyone! This one’s gonna be a bit different. Instead of the reader being insecure, I’m making Dan insecure. I do have one where the reader’s insecure which you could read here. I hope you guys enjoy. This one’s pretty deep. :)

Y/n’s POV

Being Dan’s girlfriend isn’t very hard. Of course, there is his audience but Dan has a close connection to them so he knows who is real fans are and who isn’t. And whenever I read a negative comment on one of his videos about me, he never failed to make me feel good about myself. I mean, it would be pretty hard not too. Not that I have an ego or anything, but knowing that Dan chose me over millions of girls is something I should feel proud of. So yeah, I guess I am happy with myself but I’m not so sure about Dan. You can’t be famous without any hate, of course, and a lot of times, the one bad thing pops up more than the million of good things. And as his girlfriend, I feel like it’s part of my job to make sure Dan doesn’t have any negative thoughts about himself.

I walked into the kitchen to put my coffee mug into the sink, when I saw Dan staring blankly at his computer, biting the tip of his thumb.

“You okay, love?” I walk over to him and sit next to him on the couch.

“I’m alright,” he mumbles.

“Are you sure? Because you don’t sound like it.” I wrap my arms around his waist as I talk. 

“I’m fine,” he mumbles into my forehead while kissing it. I glance at his computer and sigh.

“Seriously Dan?”

“I’m sorry! I can’t help myself. I just need to know what they’re saying.” He was looking at the hate comments on his last video.

“Do you know how tempted I am to see what everyone has to say about me? I always want to see everything negative they have to say about me. But I don’t do it because they’re opinions won’t do me any good,” I say.

“I know that but,” he sighs, “I still want to know what people are saying about me,” he shrugs. 

“Dan, I know how much those bad comments stick out to you. Please, stop reading them.”

“But they’re right, Y/n! That’s what you don’t understand!” My eyes go wide as Dan says this. Does he actually believe those people?

“Are you serious, Dan?!”

“Yes! Yes, I’m serious. My family hates me for dropping out of college, Phil is basically my only friend at this point, and my girlfriend keeps nagging at me, trying to tell me she knows what’s right for me!” He yells, standing up.

“I’m just worried, Dan,” I say quietly.

“Worried? Are you serious?! What, do I need pills now or something?!” He yells.

“What is wrong with you?!” I stand up.

“Too much!” Tears are streaming down his face as I stare at him, shocked. I’ve never seen him so emotional.

“Too much is wrong with me. That’s the problem isn’t it?”

He sits back down, sniffing. He starts crying more and my heart breaks into tiny pieces.

“Fuck,” he whisper/yells, wiping his tears as I sit next to him.

“Dan, this is exactly why I was worried. You’re letting them get to you. I’m not going to say that you’re perfect because I would just be lying to your face.” I cup his face with my hands.

“We all have issues. A lot of us are super messed up in the inside but we act like everything’s okay,” I stare at him as he looks at me like a helpless puppy.

“You’re handsome. Sweet. Very smart.” He slowly starts to smile.

“You’re an amazing person Dan. There’s a reason why you have millions of people obsessed with you.” He chuckles.

“I’ve never met anyone so sweet, Dan. You were willing to hold back all your problems to help me with mine. You’re one of the strongest people I’ve ever met. You always see the best in people and never talk about anyone behind their backs. You’re so caring that sometimes it even causes trouble,” I laugh.

“I love you so much Dan.”

He leans into my touch and I kiss him softly. He kisses back and wraps his arms around me tightly as I do the same. 

I pull away hesitantly and say, “don’t….don’t do anything stupid, Dan.” 

He gets what I’m saying and grabs my hand.

“I would never do that, Y/n.”

“Just making sure,” I say hugging him.

“I love you, Y/n.”

“I love you too, Dan. Never forget that.”

I just wanted to say a huge thank you to the people who reached out to me and took the time to write a kind message after I posted about the asshats on reddit who were hating on my tattoo. Believing in myself/my values and being proud of who I am is one of the reasons that I got the tattoo, so your messages really helped me remember that (and get over what the knobheads on that site said). So thank you to all of the anons, people who sent me messages/asks and replied to the post. @heimthra @wordsmith-storyweaver @emcri @bellamyblake @princess-emma-of-misthaven @bodhjrook @snowflakenewtscamander @nevillelonbottom @bucklesomeswashswan @lilith19822 @scruffylookingpiratecaptain are just some (!!) of the amazing people on here who took time out of their days to be super nice and I love you all so much   ❤️️ ❤️️ ❤️️

Do not stand at my grave and weep,
I am not there.
I do not sleep.

I am a thousand winds that blow
I am the diamond glints on snow
I am the sunlight on ripened grain
I am the gentle autum rain.

And when you awaken in the morning’s hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight
I am the soft stars that shine at night.

Do not stand at my grave and cry.
I am not there.
I did not die.

Dear Fellow Otayuri Shippers:

It’s been exactly a month since episode 10 of Yuri!!! on Ice aired and our darling prince Otabek Altin was introduced to the anime, which gave birth to the Otayuri ship. I am so, so proud that in this one month, we have collectively built an Otayuri empire with hundreds and hundreds of fic, artwork and just content in general! Thank you all so much for being in this fandom with me and making it absolutely magical!

To commemorate our one month anniversary, I decided to break down and record just exactly how much screen time Otayuri got in the anime…

Episode 10:

5:11-5:19 (8 seconds) - Otabek notices Yuri standing in the corner after turning down JJ’s offer to have dinner together. Yuri aggressively reacts by calling Otabek an asshole and asks him what he’s looking at. Otabek just turns around and walks away. Yuri looks after him with a look of bewilderment.

9:39-10:15 (34 seconds) - Yuri is hiding in an alleyway from his fans. Otabek appears and tells Yuri to get on the motorcycle while Yuri looks freaked out. Yuri realizes who Otabek is and Yuri’s fans find him in the alleyway. Otabek asks Yuri if he’s coming or not. Yuri stares at Otabek. He then gets on the motorcycle and Otabek drives away while Yuri’s fans take pictures. Yuri looks up at the sky, probably wondering about Otabek and his intentions. The news that the hero of Kazakhstan “kidnapped” the Russian Fairy goes viral.

10:15-11:41 (1 minute 26 seconds) - Otabek and Yuri walk up the stairs to the top of a beautiful structure. Otabek tells Yuri about their shared past and his own past. He tells Yuri that he thinks that Yuri has “the eyes of a soldier.” Yuri shares some of his own past in return. Yuri asks Otabek why he came and approached him. Otabek tells Yuri that he just thought that they were alike. He then asks Yuri if he’s going to become friends with him or not. Yuri looks shocked. However, Otabek and Yuri eventually clasp and shake hands, while being bathed in the Barcelona sunset.

15:01-15:03 (2 seconds) - Mari and Minako-sensei spot Otabek and Yuri having tea together, and they watch through the shop window as Yuri speaks enthusiastically to Otabek and Otabek listens fondly with a small smile on his face.

15:13-15:14 (1 second) - Otabek and Yuri are shown sitting next to one another during the group gathering.

15:19-15:22 (3 seconds) - Yuri turns to Otabek and asks with a look of disgust why they all had to get together.

17:58-18:02 (4 seconds) - Otabek and Yuri walk away from JJ side by side.

Episode 11:

14:53-14:55 (2 seconds) - Yuri yells “davai!” at Otabek and Otabek responds with a thumbs up.

15:45-16:02 (17 seconds) - Otabek reminisces about his time training at Yakov’s summer camp in St. Petersburg and his impression of young Yuri.

15:45-15:47 (2 seconds) - When Sara mentions how Otabek is different now, the shot pans to Yuri and zooms in on his face.

16:16-16:19 (3 seconds) - Yuri looks shocked and then impressed by Otabek’s triple axel, his lips curling up into a smirk.

16:26-16:28 (2 seconds) - After watching Otabek complete his quad toe loop flawlessly, Yuri smirks and says “heh…?”

17:38-17:39 (1 second) - Yuri utters a happy little “yeah” after seeing Otabek’s score.

Episode 12:

17:10-17:13 (3 seconds) - Otabek shouts “davai!” to Yuri, and Yuri responds with a thumbs up.

19:49-19:50 (1 second) - Otabek claps while watching Yuri’s free skate, a small smile on his face.

Total: 2 minutes 48 seconds

∟ “We’ve recovered Sabertooth. Returned it to what is was supposed to be.”

I am so incredibly proud of all the readers in the world. 

39 million books finished (over 10 million more than last year) And this isn’t counting the people who don’t track their reading on Goodreads, not counting books that have been reread. And still with 19 hours to go.

Almost double the participants compared to last year.

I AM SO PROUD OF ALL OF YOU. You’re proving that reading is something that brings joy to so many people. That reading is something to be proud of. That it’s something amazing and wonderful. 

Bookworms will one day take over the world, I am so sure of that.
