deep conversations 24/7 

‘stop saying that! i love your hobbit hair’

‘omg have you seen that baby!’ 

listening to him waffle all the time

‘you are such a dork, but i love you.’

having big plans for the future together like buying a house and getting a dog

‘baby, I need your help. are those two different shades of black?’

‘nah it’s fine. you always look good anyway’

I know there is a lot of discourse in the Phandom over whether or not Dan and Phil are together romantically. As a person who has been a casual viewer of Dan and Phil for years now, I understand the urge to apply romantic infatuation to them. They’re two people who are obviously very close, and their story is a beautiful, comforting one that has brought happiness and admiration to the hearts of many, many people. And I think that’s what we should focus on here, not ‘Phan’ as a romantic concept, but rather the steady and loving relationship of Dan and Phil that is consistently displayed and has been for quite a long time. Whether or not they’re together romantically, I think there’s beauty there. I think there’s comfort in realizing that they’ve found a connection. Dan and Phil are a reminder that you have a person, whether that be a romantic or platonic one. Seeing them together all of these years has reminded me that that kind of connection is possible and that loneliness is not inevitable. They’re best friends, lovers, soulmates - whatever you’d like to call them - and they’ve built up a community of passionate, hilarious people who are endlessly creative, sometimes in strange ways, but otherwise beautifully. Please remember that platonic love is just as prominent and overwhelmingly fantastic as romantic love. Remember to be kind to the other people in your fandom, even if they differ from you. And most importantly, remember that Dan and Phil are people who love each other, in whatever way they want to or need to. It’s a personal decision. A precise, emotional feeling that belongs to them and them only. Please, acknowledge the love between them, perceive it how you want to, but remember it’s not yours to manipulate. And either way, I believe you should be happy because there are two people out there who sit on a couch together, surrounded by nerdy items in complete comfort because they’re together. That’s all that matters in the long run, I think. Appreciate them. Respect them. Do the same to each other. Have a nice day!! 

Fitz: You know what’s a good light source? Guy with the flaming head.

Coulson: I’m really bummed I missed that.

Mack: No, you’re not.

Fitz: Sir… it was quite unsettling.
