A/N: This imagine was inspired by Dan’s video, ‘Our Awkward Fancy Meal’ and I thought it would make for a somewhat cool and funny one. I’m not too satisfied with it, but I do hope you enjoy it, guys! ^u^
Summary: Whenever Dan and Y/N hang out together, many things happen. So when she arrives and wants to be with them, Dan is reluctant and braces himself for the many surprises of the day with her.
Jittery and excited, I sat on Dan’s bed,
waiting for my moment.
I had finally managed to go to London to meet
with my two favorite people in the world: Dan and Phil!
So I had walked to their flat and knocked on
the door, but only Phil was in. However, he was really excited to see me and
invited me in.
He suggested that we should surprise Dan, and
I chuckled and told him he would not expect Dan’s reaction to that.
I knew that, obviously, Dan would be very
happy to see me just like I was to see him. But I was sure that his first
instinct would be to go ‘oh, no’ in an amusing way.
I smiled at the thought.
“I’m home!” I heard his voice, which tore me
away from my thoughts. “Phil?”
Immediately, I heard Phil running down the
stairs to welcome Dan.
I could somewhat make out their muffled voices from there, so I paid attention to hear what they said.
“I have a surprise for you!”
“I don’t like surprises…”
I grinned to myself, just picturing Dan’s
expression of pure dread and horror.
“You’ll like this one!”
Feeling my tummy rumble in excitement, I
stood up, waiting for the moment they opened the door.
I heard their footsteps growing louder and I
smiled to myself yet again.
Just when the door swung open, I jumped to my
“Surprise!” I exclaimed, making Dan jump,
“Y/N! You’re here!!” My friend uttered in
disbelief as he gave me a bear hug, but then his expression changed as he broke away. “Oh, no. You’re here!”
“Ha!” I laughed, nudging Phil. “Called it”
“I mean…” Dan rushed himself to say. “I’m so
glad to see you!”
He chuckled himself and went to hug me again, so I
gladly went to hug him too.
“Why did you say that?!” Phil inquired,
outraged by Dan’s reaction.
“Alright” Dan began as we broke the hug.
“Whenever Y/N and I meet, things happen”
Phil frowned in confusion and stared at us.
“Not bad things, but…” Dan clicked his
tongue, annoyed because he didn’t really know how to explain it.
“It’s just a mess, basically” I summarized,
to which Dan nodded in agreement.
“It can’t be that bad” Phil waved his hand in
the air, taking importance out of it. “Let’s take a walk!”
As Phil excitedly walked to his room to get
changed into his street clothes, Dan and I chuckled at the unison.
If only he knew.
The first incident of the day happened while
we were walking down the stairs of their flat.
Dan screamt in horror and firmly grasped me
by the arm while Phil squeaked in surprise and flailed around failing at
Yep, I had tripped and nearly fell down the
bloody stairs. Luckily Dan had been fast enough to hold me up.
“You could have died!” Dan dramatically said,
grinning at me when I glanced at him to let me know he was joking.
“You scared me so much!” Phil mumbled,
placing a hand on his heart.
To be honest, I had flailed my arms around
trying to find something to hold on to. I could have hit one of them in the
“See? You don’t believe us, Phil!” I told
him, holding on to their shoulders as I carefully carried on walking down the
“Bad things happen” Dan said in an
exaggerated ominous way.
“I thought you said they weren’t actually bad
things” I teased him, being used to those strange surprises that we encountered
when we were together and having a laugh with it.
“I would say you tripping, rolling down the
stairs and dying is bad, Y/N!” Dan tried to say it with concern, but ended up
Phil laughed at our silliness too.
“That’s not bad things happening” He mumbled,
opening the main door for me as we had finished going down. “It’s just Y/N
“Thank you, Phil” I softly punched him in the
shoulder and rolled my eyes at him jokingly.
“Just wait and see, Philly” Dan warned him,
knowing many more surprises were to come that day. “Wait and see”
The second surprise of the day came around an
We had been walking around London calmly.
Casually chatting, buying some milkshakes, trudging around the city. Just
having a good time.
And then, of a sudden, it started pouring
down with rain. And by that I mean it felt almost like the bloody biblical
“Of course is going to rain literally that
one time we don’t bring a bloody umbrella” Dan looked up to the sky in
“What are we going to do?” I looked at the
both of them, already shaking because I was freezing under the rain.
“For now, stay under that roof until we figure
it out” Dan pointed the terrace of a cafeteria that would allow us to take
Phil and I nodded and we followed Dan as he
ran over to the roof.
Once we were sheltered from the rain, we
heaved a sigh of relief and looked at each other.
Dan messed up his hair, trying to comb it
back again after it had been wet. Phil fastened up his coat higher to be
protected from the water and cold.
“We could go home, that’s the obvious thing”
The latter mumbled, curiously observing with his blue eyes how the people ran
around, screaming because of the intense rain.
“But Y/N is here…” Dan complained with that
little kid voice he put sometimes. “We should do something special for a change
instead of staying home watching movies”
“And where would we go?” I asked them, motioning
towards the city. “We’ll get pneumonia before we can get anywhere”
“I have a hood, I could go back and bring an
umbrella!” Phil happily suggested. “Our flat is not too far from here either”
Before we could say anything he had already
run out from under the roof.
“Phil…” I complained even though he couldn’t
hear me since he was already so far.
“And he didn’t believe us when we told him
things happened” Dan sniggered, making me laugh a little.
Shaking like a leaf, I linked my arm with Dan’s
in an attempt to gather his body warmth and stop feeling like a popsicle.
“Are you cold, Y/N?” He chuckled as he
allowed me to cuddle to his side.
“Shut up, you’re freezing too” I softly
shoved him as I smiled even if my face felt tense and numb with the cold and
Then, just as I began to feel just slightly
warmer, a car sped up in front of us and passed us by at full speed. On its
way, it splashed a giant amount of water from a pool in the pavement and left
us both even more drained.
I squeaked loudly and yanked myself backwards
in an involuntary reaction.
“Oh my god, Y/N, what are you doing? Stop,
stop!” Dan was exclaiming as I did.
He had been too dazed by the huge splashing
of water and as I threw myself backwards I pulled at his arm, since it was
still linked with mine.
Hence, we both fell to the floor.
If only Dan had been alert enough to hold me
up and avoid the both of us losing balance and falling.
Luckily, even though he couldn’t keep us from
falling, Dan managed to wrap his arms around me and stick me to his torso.
That way, when I landed on the floor I
somewhat used him as a pillow and he me. So the fall wasn’t so painful.
“Fuck!” Dan mumbled and hissed in mild pain. “Are
you alright, Y/N?”
I just cuddled to his chest, finding that
whole situation ridiculous. Overwhelmingly ridiculous.
Despite all the difficulties I had arriving at London, it didn’t stop once I was there. I had to wait around an hour until Dan got home and then when we finally went out it all was a mess.
We had managed to spend a normal evening for a while, but then there we were. Dan and I alone, in the ground, sore from the fall and soaking wet from the storm and the car that splashed us water, shivering in cold. And we still had a long evening ahead of us.
My shoulders shook as he put his hands on my
back to reassure me and I hid my face on his shoulder.
“Oh god, are you crying?!” My friend
worriedly asked me. “Are you hurt that badly?”
I shook my head and patted him in the chest,
chuckling and finding myself unable to stop laughing.
It had all been so incredibly silly and
I noticed Dan’s stiff torso becoming slightly
less tense as he chuckled. He must have realized I was cracking up, not crying.
“Did you hit your head or what?” He joked, patting me in
the back playfully.
We slowly sat up, still laughing, and looked
at each other.
“Bloody surprises…” Dan muttered, rolling his
eyes as he remembered how our day started.
I just kept laughing next to him, causing him
to let out an amused chuckle every now and then.
“I got an umbrella!” A familiar but
high-pitched voice startled me and dragged me out from my strange laughing fit.
“Holy-!” I gasped in shock as I looked to see
Phil standing there next to us all of a sudden.
“Phil jumpscare! Jesus on a boat!” Dan placed
a hand on his chest as he recovered from his heart attack.
“What are you doing on the floor?” Phil
offered me a hand to pull me up and then helped our friend up as well.
“Okay, this day is over!” I exclaimed in
exasperation and comedic resignation. “Staying home and watching movies sounds awesome now!”
Pouty and sulky like a child, I stomped my
feet as I headed back home. My ankle hurt from the fall, but I didn’t care.
I thought about it, how I would get to change
out of those soaking wet clothes. Dan or Phil could lend me something
comfortable to wear. We would stay in, all cozy and warm and just being lazy
instead of trudging through a rainy and taciturn London. Eating snacks and having warm beverages.
“And we can play videogames too!” Phil
pointed out excitedly.
“You mean lose to me in videogames” Dan
joined in, sniggering.
Thinking that a much nicer evening without
surprises awaited me made me feel better. So I waited for them to catch up with
me and linked my arms with theirs.
Dan was right, though, surprises weren’t
always so cool.
