Realistic Phanfiction

Many years in the future:

Interviewer: Hi Dan and welcome to the show!

Dan Howell: Hi! Thanks!

Int: Nice to have you here!

Dan: Good to be here. *looks around* Its quite nice, isn’t it?

Int: Oh, yes.

Dan: I’ve always heard Sydney was an ugly city but its really warm and just sort of pretty.

Int: *To the audience* Now, if you don’t know him, this is Dan Howell, youtube giant, internet kind, and official emperor of irony. *Turning back to Dan* Dan, how are you today?

Dan: Pretty good, thanks. Excited to be in Australia. Been visiting friends. Nadia’s not used to travel, we didn’t know how she’d do but she’s loving the whole experience.

Int: Awww, how old is she?

Dan: She’s- Oh! For those who don’t know, Nadia’s my daughter… 

Viewers/interviewer: aaawwwww!!!

Dan: Yeah, I know. Me and my best friend, Phil, got her- wow- almost six months ago! *looks dramatically shaken* Wow, already?!

Int: Woah, congratulations!

Dan: Thank you! Yeah. You know, some of our fans still call her Susan Howlter?

Int: Really? Still?

Dan: Yeah, they’re hanging on to that one. *To the audience* If you didn’t know, Phil and I have been pretty good friends for about sixteen years and we used to have this joint channel where we played video games- we’d this Sim we called Dil Howlter, you know, because it’s like a combination of our names- and Phil sort of had his awful habit of naming everything Susan, so…

Int: So the long-time fans are really enjoying this, essentially.

Dan: Essentially, yes.

Int: By the way Dan, last I saw you, you were living in London. Do you still live in the old flat?

Dan: No- it was a bit small. We’re moved out of the city, a bit less urban, ‘cause we thought, better for Nadia… you know.

Int: It is so great that you and Phil are still such great friends!

Dan: I know- I mean, its so funny because a lot of people are really surprised at the idea of two mates adopting a child together and getting a little house with, you know, a blue door and a wood fence but we’re happy and… its great.

Int: …

Dan: Life with the biffle’s pretty great, to be honest.

Viewers: …

Dan:   :)

My dad keeps bugging me about when I am getting a job cause I'm almost 22 I know so old, but it's hard, I'm not that much of an outgoing talkative person and so its hard for interviews it makes me stressful

Okay listen 1) no you’re not too old, you’re starting your adult life, a lot of things start happening at that age and need to be figured out

2) if you put “it’s so hard for me to get a job” in your head, you’ll never get there. It’s hard I know, believe me, it’s really hard to get used to the idea. But the best thing you can do is think “these people don’t know me, they have no idea what I’m like or what I feel, so I’m gonna put on my favorite outfit and rock that interview”. It’s hard, but it’s not impossible! As the famous quote says “fake it till you make it”

and 3) DON’T ever give in to other people’s pressure. Yes it’s hard but it’s YOUR call to realize when you’re ready. Everyone grows in different ways, different times.

It’s not the end of the world, you’ll get there 👍🏼

HP interview Rupert. (2016)
  • Popsugar: There are so many new things happening with the Harry Potter franchise.
  • Rupert Grint: It's really kicking off, isn't it? With the play [Harry Potter and the Cursed Child]. It's amazing and quite surreal . . . to not be a part of it feels weird. I'm definitely gonna see the play. It’ll be interesting: it's a great story in its depth, and I know it will translate well on stage.
  • Popsugar: How do you feel about Eddie Redmayne joining the wizarding world [in Fantastic Beasts and How to Find Them]?
  • Rupert Grint: I'm excited to see it!
  • Popsugar: If there was some initiation ritual for the franchise, what would it be?
  • Rupert Grint: A few hours on a broomstick, maybe, though I'm not sure if there's any Quidditch [in the film].
  • Popsugar: Maybe some sort of Butterbeer drinking challenge?
  • Rupert Grint: Yeah, or eating slugs.
  • Popsugar: How does it feel to have this whole new generation of kids discovering the series for the first time?
  • Rupert Grint: It’s a trip. It makes me feel quite old! It's surreal, but amazing. I feel proud to be a part of it, because the books and films are so important to people. It's great that it lives on. and people are still excited, and it’s still so relevant.

How long did it take you to get used to having the runes applied every day?
Oh, man. You still don’t get used to it. Because you get them on there — and some people don’t mind so much, and really, they’re easy to have on… but it toward the end of the day, it becomes a bit of just ‘oh, I want to get them off.’ But they’re fun to have on for a lot of the time. It’s like play time.
