I can't remember the name, but I'm looking for a fic where dan begins to cough flower petals because he has a crush on Phil and eventually the flower petals will kill him unless he tells Phil?

Bloom (wattpad) - When a person falls in unrequited love, a flower begins to bloom in their chest, causing them to cough up flower petals. This causes a great deal of pain, often driving the victim to the point of insanity. The latest victim? Dan Howell, of course. Lucky him.   Will he be able to suffer through it? Or will the pain make him lose his mind?

Flooded Lungs (ao3) - the usual 2009, long-distance meeting story- but Dan has Hanahaki disease, where unrequited love causes someone to cough up flowers, until the love becomes requited… or they suffocate.  Dan is angsty, phil is sweet, and yellow tulips are everywhere.

Sun Speckled Roses (ao3) - Phil and Dan. Dan and Phil. The two had best friends for years. Phil had always hidden his feelings for Dan under his emotions for everyone close to him. When knowledge of the Hanahaki Disease spreads through the English nation, it seemed the so called plague began spreading even faster. When Phil began coughing up the petals of both pink roses and sunflowers, he knew everything was ending in pretty pinks and bright yellows.

Yellow Roses (ao3) - (TW) There were a few times when Dan knew he was in love. However, he didn’t realize how fucked he was until the flowers came.

could it be one of these?

How is being gay not a sin you're a Catholic it's in the Bible so...

Here’s the Catechism excerpt:

2357 Homosexuality refers to relations between men or between women who experience an exclusive or predominant sexual attraction toward persons of the same sex. It has taken a great variety of forms through the centuries and in different cultures. Its psychological genesis remains largely unexplained. Basing itself on Sacred Scripture, which presents homosexual acts as acts of grave depravity, tradition has always declared that “homosexual acts are intrinsically disordered.“ They are contrary to the natural law. They close the sexual act to the gift of life. They do not proceed from a genuine affective and sexual complementarity. Under no circumstances can they be approved.

2358 The number of men and women who have deep-seated homosexual tendencies is not negligible. This inclination, which is objectively disordered, constitutes for most of them a trial. They must be accepted with respect, compassion, and sensitivity. Every sign of unjust discrimination in their regard should be avoided. These persons are called to fulfill God’s will in their lives and, if they are Christians, to unite to the sacrifice of the Lord’s Cross the difficulties they may encounter from their condition.

2359 Homosexual persons are called to chastity. By the virtues of self-mastery that teach them inner freedom, at times by the support of disinterested friendship, by prayer and sacramental grace, they can and should gradually and resolutely approach Christian perfection.

[Emphasis Mine]

Sex for the Catholic comes threefold: Selfless-love, unitive for spouses, and procreative means. Homosexual persons fill two out of three, they can not be procreative thus homosexual acts are sinful, not the state of being.

But for clarification, the way Catholics use homosexuality refers to the acts, not the state of being. Such as Sodom and Gomorrah, the acts are sinful and are equal to “living in a state of hell spiritually.” 

To quote Father Phil Bloom:

 “As far as what Christ requires, the homosexual is in a similar position to anyone who for whatever reason does not get married. Jesus teaches that the only legitimate (genital) use of our sexuality is in marriage. The reason for that teaching is found in Gen 1:27 which Jesus quotes when they asked him about the possibility of divorce: "Male and female he created them.” That may seem like only a simple biological fact, but it has deep theological implications”

And in Persona Humana; Sec 8:

This judgment of Scripture does not of course permit us to conclude that all those who suffer from this anomaly are personally responsible for it, but it does attest to the fact that homosexual acts are intrinsically disordered and can in no case be approved of.

The ACTS are sinful, not the STATE OF BEING. We are meant to love them, as they carry their Cross with constant trial.The Church, infallibly, teaches that we have no clue what causes this and acknowledge they can’t all be personally responsible for it. 

Some will cry out that considering them disordered is wrong and bigoted, but the fact is all people are disordered in some way. This is why our entire nature is disordered due to the Fall of Adam, this is why we sin. 

All people are called to Chastity:

2337 Chastity means the successful integration of sexuality within the person and thus the inner unity of man in his bodily and spiritual being. Sexuality, in which man’s belonging to the bodily and biological world is expressed, becomes personal and truly human when it is integrated into the relationship of one person to another, in the complete and lifelong mutual gift of a man and a woman.

The virtue of chastity therefore involves the integrity of the person and the integrality of the gift.

Because it is the ultimate form of self giving. The whole point of sex is to be selfless and procreative, making a family and giving one’s self to the other. This is representative of God giving Himself for humanity and producing a Holy Church and People. 

Homosexual persons are called to chastity, to love Christ, and to live out the Gospel. They are not in a constant state of sin, but rather choose a sinful life if they act upon their intrinsic disorder, like all people do with different ones. 

We are meant to love the homosexual person, as Christ instituted the commandment:  I give you a new commandment, that you love one another. Just as I have loved you, you also should love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.” – John 13:34-35

TL;DR Being homosexual is not a sinful state according to the infallible teachings of the Catholic Church.

Please Read this for more, and even in the first paragraph it says the desire is not sinful. As Christ Himself was tempted with desire, and He was sinless.

Blooming Lilacs  - Phil knows he looks a little rough but he wants everyone, especially his roommate Dan, who is painfully shy but ultimately a giant sweetheart, that he genuinely is a nice person and is always going to be here for what makes him most comfortable.

A/N: Thanks again to nerdinessisawesome for reading this over and encouraging me to actually write these stories.

October 2009
Phil smiled at Dan in the mirror, ecstatic that they finally met. They had just finished filming phil is not on fire, and were doing their best to clean off their cat whiskers. Dan was scrubbing his nose with soapy hands.
“Here,” said Phil, holding out a sponge, “Let me.”
Dan nodded and closed his eyes as he turned towards him. Phil couldn’t help but think about how beautiful Dan looked. Phil softly stroked Dan’s soapy cheek with his hand. Dan’s eyes fluttered open.
“Phil, I-” Dan started stuttering.
“Shhh. I know.” Phil was nervous, but not because he didn’t think Dan wouldn’t like him. He was pretty sure they had mutual crushes on each other since the first Skype call. Phil was scared to mess up what they did have. But he had this chance, he had wanted to do this for so long, and he wasn’t going to pass it up. He pressed his lips softly to Dan’s. It was a sweet kiss that lasted a long time. Once they broke apart, Dan started giggling.
“We’re covered in soap!”
Phil stuck his tongue out. “I think we could be a lot cleaner,” and he grabbed the soap bottle and started squirting at Dan. Their laughter echoed around the bathroom. Phil knew this could bloom into an even more beautiful relationship.

December 2011
Phil sat down on his bed and scrolled through Twitter. He grimaced as he saw tweet after tweet to him and Dan about Phan. Why couldn’t people leave them alone? There was so much pressure to come out, and they were not prepared. He heard a knock at his door.
“Come in.”
Dan slunk in. “Hey. I’ve been wanting to tell you something.”
Phil moved over on his bed, making room for Dan, who took the farthest corner to sit on.
“What’s up, Dan?” Phil prompted him. He looked tired and trodden upon.
“I can’t do this anymore,” Dan said after taking a big breath. “Just turn off my relationship with you in front of everyone. Make sure there isn’t any evidence of us dating in every one of my videos and refilm when there is.” Dan slouched and hugged his knees.
“Do you want to come out then? We can stop hiding.” Phil thought about it, how much simpler it would be, and how nice it would be to not have to worry about accidentally outing himself.
Dan shook his head, and continued where he left off. “I want to break up.”
Phil flinched. Did Dan really want to break up rather than deal with the homophobic people? He saw Dan start to tear up.
“Do you remember when you met me I talked about being bullied for being bi? I thought I was over it, I mean at least I had you and I left school, so I didn’t care about the bullies so much, but I guess the fear never really left me. And the fans won’t stop talking about it, and -” Dan stopped talking and put his hands over his mouth as tears slid down his face.
“Okay,” Phil said. He wanted to go over to Dan and hold him until he stopped crying, but it seemed like Dan didn’t want that anymore. “If that’s what you want.”
Dan nodded and quietly padded out of Phil’s room into his own where he could finish crying. Phil couldn’t believe it. It was over. He closed his laptop and rolled over on his side, trying to sleep with his eyes wide open.

June 2012
Things had been rough the last couple of months. They were still best friends, they were still living together, but everything was different. There were so much silence in the apartment. Nights had turned cold and lonely. Laughter still occurred, but much less often than before. However, when Dan’s grandma gave him two tickets to Las Vegas for his birthday, he didn’t have anyone he wanted to go with more than Phil. Thus, he and Phil rode the plane side by side until it landed in Nevada and they left for their hotel.
Dan looked around in wonder at the bright lights, and Phil felt a pang in his gut. Dan was so gorgeous, and he used to be his. Phil sighed and looked on.

They weren’t that drunk. Just a little tipsy. Sober enough to walk into the elevator and punch their floor number. Phil had his arm around Dan, who was having a little more trouble holding his alcohol than he was. They stumbled into Dan’s room, and Phil dumped him onto his bed, but as he pulled away to head off to his own room Dan muttered something.
“What?” Phil asked as Dan pulled on his hand. If he hadn’t been drinking, he would have been able to stay on his feet, but with the slight pull, he flopped on top of Dan’s bed.
“Stay,” Dan whispered and he snuggled closer to Phil before yawning.
Phil decided he was too tired to get up anyway, so he put his arm around Dan and drifted off to sleep.

Phil woke up when Dan rolled on top of him. All his air left his lungs, and Dan woke up because of the bumpy surface.
Phil lightly pushed Dan off and looked into his eyes.
“Good morning, Phil,” Dan said in a sleepy voice.
Phil groaned. “I feel so hungover. I don’t want to get up.”
“You don’t have to,” Dan said, and he continued, “I’ve realized that I made a stupid mistake. You’re the best thing that’s ever happened to me. I’m sorry for thinking that I could give you up. I love you so much. Will you forgive me? Can we be something again? I don’t care if we’re closeted. I don’t care if we’re out. I just want us to be real.” Dan finished and looked nervously at Phil.
Phil slowly smiled and hugged Dan.
“Yeah.”

July 2012
Dan was looking over his footage from Vegas. He knew he promised his subscribers a vlog, but he and Phil were so clingy in all the shots. How drunk had they been?!
“Phil!” He called. Phil walked over and came into his room.
“What’s up?”
“I can’t use any of this footage. We won’t let go of each other.” He looked up at Phil and continued, “If you want, we could come out. What do you think?”
Phil hesitated. “I don’t know. I think that there’s a better way to come out than to just release a video where we’re suddenly a couple. I think we should stay where we are until we make a video of us coming out.”
Dan nodded. “But what should I tell everybody? I promised them a video.”
Phil promptly replied, “You can tell them that you lost the footage, I mean vlogs take forever to edit,  long enough for something like that to happen.”
“Sounds good. How should we act around each other in videos then?”
“How about we act natural, you know, at first it might be awkward, but eventually I think we can be really close, and maybe we’ll come out when we’re one hundred percent ready.”
Dan smiled. “Sounds like a plan.”

October 2015
“Ready, Dan?” He nodded.
Phil pressed record on his camera.
“Hey guys! So as you have probably guessed from the title of the video, Dan and I are dating.”
“More like Phil and I are engaged,” Dan said, showing off his ring to the camera.
Phil smiled at him, so happy they could finally do this, and continued, “We were tired of hiding from you guys, and we decided it was time to tell you.”
“We thought marriage would be harder to hide than dating, and we thought we should be the ones to tell you.  We didn’t want leaked photos or anything.”
“And while we’re talking about this, we also just want to say that it gets better to any of the LGBTQIA+ people who are having difficulties.”
Dan smiled and said, “Back at school when people found out I was bi, I was bullied pretty horribly. But now, I couldn’t be happier. I’m with the love of my life, and I have a whole bunch of accepting friends, and I’m so glad I stayed strong when I was younger. It does get better.”
“Yeah. I always knew that I was interested in girls and boys, and even though it was difficult to come out to my friends, I did it, and was much better off because of it.”
“Thank you guys so much for understanding and being  supportive. We love you so much.”
They smiled at the camera and said goodbye. Once Phil turned off the camera he faced Dan.
“We just need to edit and upload,” Phil said.
Dan stood up and hugged his fiance. “I’m so excited.“
