Now. i’m not saying that y'all hyping up pinof 8 is gonna backfire but dan and phil will film pinof 8 in separate rooms. if dan so much as speaks he is shocked by a button phil presses. it is just phil making dad jokes. dan struggles against his restraints. dirty jokes have ceased to exist. no physical contact whatsoever. phil is an anti
Friendly reminder that THIS. HUG. ACTUALLY HAPPENED. IN CANON.
Some things I can’t help but think about when I see this:
This happened at the same time as all the canon couples were hugging/making out
The back of her head is so pretty. Look at her hair!
MELINDA MAY INITIATED IT. Melinda, who (although she totally liked it. We see right through you, Mama May) shied away from both Jemma and Daisy’s hugs, who keeps a pretty good sized personal space bubble around her, rarely initiates physical contact, went to Phil to hug him. No hesitation or awkwardness, just a straight C’mere, you idiot.
PHIL’S FACE. I think at the moment, Phil was feeling pretty dead on the inside. That feeling where you’re not sure what really just happened and you’re kind of dazed out. BUT WATCH HIS EYES FOLLOW HER AND THEN FLUTTER SHUT. HOW HE JUST KIND OF SINKS INTO HER EMBRACE AND PUTS HIS ARMS AROUND HER. THEN HE LEANS HIS HEAD AGAINST HERS, LIKE SHE’S HIS SUPPORT. THE REASON HE’S STILL STANDING. UGH. I’m not dramatic at all. I think hugging Melinda made him feel home again. Grounded. Like a reminder of why he was still there on earth. He had someone to come home to.
Holy cow. Wow. What a hug.
How much you wanna bet they used to hug all the time during the Academy/before she got married? It looks so natural!
*GASP* WHAT IF THEY HUGGED IN THE HOTEL ROOM AFTER HE WATCHED THE TAHITI VIDEO?! I bet they’ve been sneaking in hugs off screen this whole time and we just didn’t know
Pretty sure there was some swaying going on there
They literally lean into each other
Also, since we don’t get to see May’s face here, I like imagining that she still had that slight smile on her face when they reach for each other, but as soon as she pats his back or strokes his neck, I mean, that’s up for interpretation her smile disappears and she has to close her eyes and press her lips together to keep the tears at bay, because she nearly lost him…again.
What happened after?!? How long did it last?!
Did the kids look at them hugging and smile because Mama May and Papa Phil are finally back together?? Did Melinda pull her face back reluctantly and hold onto Phil just a little longer? Was there face touching?? A thumb brushed across his cheek??!!?Let me dream. A long look and a watery smile before she slid her hands back down to her side??
HOW ARE THOSE BOUNDARIES WORKIN’ FOR YOU NOW, YA DORKS?!
What do you guys think about when you remember this glorious hug?
Here’s a version of the TATINOF promo image with the YouTube Red logo/hashtag thing covered and blurred out. I tried to make it look okay because I really wanted a physical copy but love the picture so ¯\_(•_•)_/¯
Ok so i hear that some people are annoyed at dan and phil for releasing another book and saying things like “they just want more money”. I have something to tell you:
1) They are NOT forcing you to buy the book.
2)They have already explained why they are doing this. To preserve their memories into something physical.
3)Dan and Phil wrote TABINOF together, so it’s totally fine if they want to release another book.
4)They work so hard every single day for us. We should appreciate them.
5) If you don’t want the book don’t buy it but you can’t stop the people who love them from buying it anyways.
6)Just because we are saying this doesn’t mean we hate you,that is how much the phandom is filled with positivity.
