AO3 Phan Chaptered Fics Masterlist
Seeing as I spend half my time on AO3 as it is, I thought I’d help everyone out a bit my making a masterlist of chaptered fics that might otherwise get overlooked.
Many of these are cross-posted works on both Tumblr and AO3.
These are only the longer one’s, with a word count over 7,000, as otherwise this list would go on forever.
This will not be updated, double check for completion for yourself! Orphaned = Abandoned
List Last Updated as of 1/14/15
Sit back and enjoy!

Phil was his best friend, but when Dan begins Kindergarten, Phil says he has to go, and with a goodbye that was not nearly long enough, Phil leaves Dan alone with only the memory of him, holding on to the hope that his mommy was wrong and that Phil wasn’t imaginary, no matter how much he was told to forget about him. But down the road when Dan goes to high school, will he have forgotten? Will he do anything as Phil makes a reappearance in his life? Complete
