Anon: Hey Kimberley ! Your fics is so so awesome ! I’ve been following your blog for months now and I’m obsessed. So I have this idea maybe y/n is an asian or girl from a different race ? i’m not sure if this is going to work but can you write a fic about them coming out as a couple and the reaction of the fan is not really good and he comforts her ? that would be super amazing ! thank you for all of your hard work btw , you’re a gorgeous person !
Aw, you’re so sweet. Thank-you so much! :) I hope this is okay, I didn’t specify race/culture so that it can stand for any. Let me know what you think and sorry if there is a lot of mistakes as I am writing on my macbook with a broken screen ;_; thank-you for following my blog xxoo
One whole year you had been with Dan now. This one year had been the best so far, Dan was always there for you, making you feel loved and important.
“Good morning princess” Dan’s morning voice grumbles as he rolls over in the bed and wraps his arm around you, placing a kiss on your shoulder in the process.
“Morning sleepy head” You greet with a smile as you admire his ‘hobbit’ hair and topless chest. A whole year and the view of the beautiful creature continues to make you breathless.
As Dan finally finds the strength to keep his eyes open, he runs his fingers through your hair before leaning in and placing a soft and loving kiss to your lips.
“Happy 1 year gorgeous” He whispers as your lips separate.
For the first 1 year anniversary treat, Dan takes you out for lunch at a beautiful restaurant where you both enjoy a wine and talk about the future.
“Baby, seeing as it’s been a year… I was wandering if I could introduce you to my subscribers? Then we can go out more without worrying about getting caught and we can-“ Dan questions before begging to ramble.
“Okay” you reply with a smile.
Really.” you say with a giggle.
Dan leans across the table and places a quick kiss on your lips before you both finish of your meals and head home.
As soon as you were home, Dan set up all of his filming equipment. You spent time preparing yourself, making sure you looked okay and planning on what to say.
Although you were nervous, the video turned out well. Dan had introduced you as his girlfriend, informed them that it had been a year before going on to do the boyfriend tag.
Dan spent the rest of the afternoon editing while you watched tv and scrolled through tumblr.
“Done.” Dan suddenly says, plopping down onto the sofa beside you. He wraps an arm around you and pulls you to his chest. Dan knew you were nervous, so he tried to calm you by rubbing your arms and telling you how much they would like you.
Fifteen minutes later Dan excused himself as he headed to the toilet. As much as you tried to resist, you simply couldn’t take it anymore. You quickly opened your laptop and went onto the video to read the comments.
Of course you knew you would get some hate, but you certainly didn’t expect this. Tears instantly filled your eyes as you read the offensive words of his followers. Over and over, racist terms were thrown around. You expected to be called things such as “ugly” or “fat” or any of the usual down putting words, but racist slurs? no. That was not right.
You couldn’t believe Dan’s subscribers would say such things. Not being able to take anymore, you place the laptop onto the coffee table and head to the bedroom where you collapse on to mattress.
When Dan see’s that your not in the living room anymore, he walks to the bedroom, his face falling as soon as he sees your state.
“Shit, Y/n… whats wrong sweetheart?” He worries as he runs over to you and pulls you into his lap.
“The comments…” Is all you can say at the point as ran rubs your back soothingly.
“Sweetheart, don’t listen to them. You are not ugly or gross or anything else they could have possibly said. You are so beau-“
“It’s because I’m not white… They were saying racist things and making rude comments about culture” as you spoke you could feel Dans body tense beneath you.
“What assh-“ Dan begins but softens as you begin to cry again.
He spends the rest of the night holding you close and doing his best to make you feel better until you fall asleep. He lays your unconscious body down onto the bed and pulls the covers over you before heading to the study to film a quick, non-edited video.
He decided to read the comments himself and he couldn’t help the tears that escaped his eyes.
“How can people be so cruel?” he says to himself.
Lifting up his vlogging camera, he presses record.
“So as most of you are aware, I uploaded a video earlier today where I introduced you all to my girlfriend. Now I know not all of you are part of this, so to guys, congratulations on being decent human beings. However a lot of you said horrible things about Y/n, just because she is not white. I want those of you to do me a favour and unsubscribe from my channel. The Danosaur community does not need that sort of disrespect.”
And that was it, Dan uploaded the video on its own before returning to bed and holding you close all night.
