HERE YA GO YOU SINNERS!
Dan was sleeping in his own bed tonight. He usually ended up in Phil’s bed, but with them moving and all, Phil ended up on the sofa and Dan ended up in his bed. It was a bit lonely there, but Dan eventually managed to fall asleep. He was in the middle of a particularly good dream about Phil when the sudden and tremendous pressure on his feet pulled him into reality.
Dan let out a yelp, finding a figure in the dark but a few inches from his face. He fumbled for his bedside lamp, eventually illuminating the room to find himself staring back at him. “What the hell?!”
“Who the hell are you?!”
“I’m Daniel Howell.”
“So am I, but I go by Dan.” Dan was happy to have some slight clarification and difference between the two of them.
“So I’m really in another dimension?” Daniel looked around the room in wonder.
“I’m a scientist. I finally finished creating a dimensional portal and came through. I ended up in this dimension and came here, since it’s where I live. There’s really not much different between our two Londons, or our two rooms even. What do you do?”
“I’m a YouTuber.”
“What’s a YouTube?”
Dan couldn’t imagine a dimension without YouTube. Worse even, a dimension where he never met Phil. “Well, I guess we’ve found out the difference between our two dimensions.”
Daniel shrugged Dan’s comment off. “What was that dream you were having?”
Dan blushed immediately, remembering the dream. He was dreaming of Phil. “You heard that?”
“Enough to know you’re pretty into whoever Phil is.” Daniel obviously wanted to know all he could about his alter-dimensional counterpart, and Dan was fairly confident he could trust himself to not leak any information. At least, not to this dimension.
“Phil’s my boyfriend. Also my flatmate. And my best friend. But the world only knows about the last two.”
“Ah. That would explain the whispered “fuck me daddy”.”
Dan blushed once again. “I guess you heard that too.”
“Odd. In my dimension, Dan Howell is pretty dominant.” Dan noticed his doppelganger glance down at the receding bulge that had formed under his sheets during his dreams. It was the elephant in the room up until this point, but that wouldn’t last long. “You know, I can take care of that for you.”
Dan was taken aback. “But you’re me!”
“So?” Dan took a moment to think. It definitely wouldn’t be the first time he’d fucked himself. In fact, it probably would have been what he’d have done to take care of this problem in the first place. Of course, that’s totally different. But it had to be better than just jacking off.
“Oh, what the hell.” Dan threw the sheets off of his torso. “Go for it.”
Daniel was giddy. “On all fours.”
“What? I thought you were just gonna like, suck me off or something?”
“I said all fours.” Dan sighed and did as he was told. It was almost odd, hearing his own voice commanding him with such dominance. It was almost… hot. This was something Dan could get into.
Daniel was undressing, and Dan was starting to get impatient. Dan slept naked, so he had to wait for Daniel to undress while he was already naked. “C’monnnnnn!” Dan started nudging his counterpart with his ass, begging him to hurry up. Soon, Daniel was finally undressed, but that didn’t stop Dan. He ended up rubbing his ass all over Daniel’s now bare cock. Daniel, of course, didn’t bother to move out of the way. Both Dans were quite enjoying this.
“Got any lube?” Daniel asked once he was getting hard. Dan pointed him to his bedside stand. Both were glad to hear that existed in the other’s dimension. Daniel covered his fingers in lube and was about to stick one in Dan’s ass when the two heard the door open and both turned their heads to see who had entered.
“Dan, is everything okay in here? I got up to use the bathroom and saw your light was… WHAT THE HELL?!”
“Uh… Hi, Phil…”
Daniel interjected. “This is Phil?” He looked the black-haired boy up and down. “Good pick.”
“I have no clue how there are two Dans here, but I feel slightly offended being left out of this.” Phil was getting a bit of a bulge himself, which both the Dans noticed. Phil tossed off the boxers he was sleeping in and strode over to Dan’s bed. “You…”
Phil pointed blankly at Daniel, not even knowing the name of the boy he was about to fuck. “Daniel.”
“You two freak me out.” Phil took the lube out of Daniel’s hand and squeezed some into his own. “I didn’t say stop.” Daniel proceeded to begin fingering Dan’s ass, as he was going to before Phil walked in. He inserted two fingers immediately, and began scissoring them. All three of them were getting very eager.
Daniel quickly added another finger, pumping his fingers in and out for only a few seconds before they all gave in to the urge and Daniel prepared to penetrate Dan with his rock hard cock. Phil quickly bumped Daniel out of the way. “Hey, he’s my boyfriend. My turn.” Phil penetrated instead, leaving Daniel to move around to Dan’s front.
“Suck me off.” Dan gladly took his counterpart in his mouth, both sucking Daniel and being fucked by Phil at the same time. The three moved in a rhythmic triangle, Dan moving along with Phil’s thrusts and sucking along to the beat Phil was setting. Daniel was soon nearing orgasm, and pulled out of Dan’s mouth. He pushed Phil out of the way and the two switched. Daniel took Dan’s asshole, and Dan started sucking Phil off.
Daniel immediately started hitting Dan’s prostate, and Dan moaned, almost choking on Phil. Dan soon looked up at Phil with his deep chestnut eyes and backed away, giving him the ability to speak. “Daddy, I’m close!” Daniel looked up at Phil, feeling slightly left out, and gave a particularly hard thrust. Dan winced, and Phil looked down at the pained boy.
“Come untouched and finish me off.” Dan moaned, coming all over his bedsheets. Daniel came into him, and fell limp on the foot of Dan’s bed. Dan finished sucking Phil and swallowed his cum, both of them falling beside Daniel.
The three lay there helplessly for a few moments before Daniel finally stood up. “I guess I ought to be going back now. Thank you for the… Research.” He dressed himself, waved, and walked out of Dan’s room.
“I don’t know what that was or who he was, but it was definitely the weirdest hookup I’ve ever had.” Phil was confused and slightly concerned.
“I’m still waiting to wake up.”
“I don’t think you’re going to.” The two looked out Dan’s window to see the slightest gleams of the sunrise. Dan took Phil’s hand. Neither of them knew what had just happened, and they were both probably going to repress that memory. But as long as they had each other, it would all be okay.
some Antisepticeye & Darkiplier things to point out
Okay so idk if other people have had the same thoughts, but I’ve GOT to point out some uncanny links between what happened at/before Jacksepticeye’s panel at PAX 2017 and in “SAY GOODBYE”, and what happened in “A Date With Markiplier”.
Ok so lemme start out by talking about Anti’s PAX “takeover”. He appears suddenly to usurp the intro video, but you hear him before you see him. The screen glitches a bit, convincingly enough to fool the crowd into glossing over it. But then the quality degrades, the track stutters noticeably and the screen blacks out. After a moment it explodes back to life and you see flashes of some of Jack’s previous videos, blurring from one to another with the colour pallet all out of whack, faster and faster until it slams back to black. You hear Anti chuckle, and as he appears visually, the first thing he says to you is, “Did you miss me??”
Keep that in mind as we move on to a Date with Markiplier. Pay for the dinner, go to the horror play and Mark disappears from his seat. The screen starts glitching out and the viewer’s field of vision widens until the stage is all they can see, over and over. Rumbling sounds can be heard, and for a moment, the figure of Dark appears reflected in a couple of the frames. Faster, faster, a high keening sound and slam to black. After a moment Dark appears to address the viewer, and what’s the first thing he says? That’s right. “Did you miss me?” Those same words. They both pulled a Moriarty- kinda strange, right?
Now, one might think “what a weird coincidence, moving on-” because it’s kind of a creepy thing to say in such circumstances, and it might make sense that both Jack and Mark would go for such a line. But wait, let us continue, back to PAX and Anti’s speech:
“You stopped paying attention! Well I hope you’re happy. You found someone new, threw me aside- someone, to replace me!!”
We were all paying attention to Anti during the events leading up to “SAY GOODBYE”. That much is obvious. After said video, Jack made his Halloween vlog and most of us thought it was over, at least for a while. We weren’t sure if/when Anti was going to come back, and we certainly didn’t expect it to happen as soon as a mere three months after the apex video, in which Anti won, so to speak, and Jack was apparently murdered. I wouldn’t say we forgot about Anti- its awesomeness lingered long after “SAY GOODBYE” was posted- but yes, we moved on to other things. Things like “a Date with Markiplier”.
Anti had his moment in the spotlight, retreated back into… hiding, or whatever you want to call it, and that’s when Mark’s Darkiplier project started, the countdown reaching 00:00:00:00 on Valentines’ day. If I remember correctly, Jack started to bring Anti back in the second episode of his Detention series, on January 25th. Between Anti’s two active periods, when he was on hiatus, Dark was running amok and had become our main focus.
What I’m getting at here is that when Anti says we “stopped paying attention”, and “found someone new”, someone “to replace me”… I think he means Darkiplier. I’m pretty sure Anti’s pointing out that he doesn’t appreciate Dark stealing the limelight and distracting us from him. He was/is jealous of Dark for holding our attention, and that might be one of the reasons he’s come back- to prove that he’s not gone, and that Dark isn’t better than him.
Which ALSO means that Anti is, somehow, aware of Dark’s existence, and possibly vice versa.
Dark used very similar dialogue to Anti as well, if you remember. In the “HORROR” video, he says,
“I’ve been pushed aside… replaced… mocked.”
It sounds like he’s talking about Mark, and he very well might be. It sounds like Mark has pushed Dark aside- out of fear, or a desire to live his normal life without Dark’s interference, whatever the case may be- but the wording is really similar to what Anti chose to say at PAX mere days ago. They both describe being “replaced”, and say that they were “pushed aside”/”threw me aside”. Although Dark could be talking about Mark, he could also be talking about Anti in a way, or both at once if you go for the double meaning interpretation.
This is where the cohesion of what I’m saying stars to crumble a little bit, but bear with me: Let’s say Dark was also talking about Anti as well as Mark when he said he was “pushed aside” and “replaced”. One might think, “Well that can’t work, because canon Dark didn’t exist when we first started glimpsing Anti flickering in Jack’s facecam.” Well… he actually did, to a certain extent. In a couple of Mark’s older videos- notably “Relax” and “Surgeon Simulator IN REAL LIFE”, Darkiplier appears. It’s an older, cruder version of Darkiplier, but it’s Dark nonetheless. (When in doubt, check the subtitles.) Back then, at least as far as I’m aware, Dark was the only one of his kind who had actually appeared in videos and not just in fanart or fanfiction generated by the community. And for a long time, he remained like that, in a class all by himself. But then Anti happened, blowing him out of the water by a lot. Dark came back afterward possibly for several reasons, one of which could be to take our attention back from Anti, to move it onto himself. (This link has less integrity because “relax” and “Surgeon Simulator IN REAL LIFE” were posted seven and ten months ago, respectively, so the connections between those and more recent events may or may not be 100% purposeful.)
If that last part is true though, then their argument has been going on for quite a while. If not, well, there’s still an argument, still jealousy going back and forth as they battle for our, the viewers’, enthusiasm. It’s just a little more recent.
Mom, what do you do to calm down and relax? I feel really shitty rn, and I was wondering if you had any tips?
Ok friend, I have just the thing for you
Go to your App Store, and download a game called Tap Tap Fish/AbyssRium. It’s a really cute game (and it’s free!!) where you have to tap to level up a ‘lonely corallite’, and as you progress, you can buy more fish, and more corals. The colours are very soft and gentle, and it’s very relaxing watching the little fishies swim across your screen. I’ve found it very good for anxiety, as all it involves is tapping the screen, which you can do as leisurely or frantically as you want. Also, when you close the game, you can leave it shut for as long as you want, and nothing will happen! You’ll just open it up again, and you’ll have gained some more energy.
Look at these soft colours! They have seasonal events too (I took this picture during the Halloween event) where your corallite will be decorated, and you can unlock new, seasonal fish! The current seasonal event is an Easter event, where you get flower fish, like this one:
Sweet little flower fish!
Plus the corallite will sometimes have a little text bubble beside it, that says things like “are you taking care of yourself?” and “I’m so glad you’re spending time with me!” (and also “It’s high moon”. Can’t decide if that’s an Overwatch reference, or just a coincidence)
The music is also super relaxing too, but if you want something a little more distracting, then go to YouTube, and look up the pilot episode of Welcome to Nightvale. If you’ve never heard of it, it’s a podcast set in a quiet little desert town where every conspiracy theory is TRUE. The president of the school board is an omnipotent glowing cloud that rains dead animals (ALL HAIL THE GLOW CLOUD), and there is a cat hovering 4 feet off the floor in the men’s bathroom named Koshekh, and there’s a dog park that people and dogs aren’t allowed in. Only the hooded figures are allowed in the dog park.
And the best thing? It’s all normal. There’s no yelling and screaming and freaking out about all of the weirdness. The voice of Nightvale is a total cinnamon roll called Cecil Palmer (voiced by Cecil Baldwin, what a babe), who falls in love with the perfect, gorgeous scientist named Carlos who moves to the town during the first episode. You get to follow the story through Cecil and Carlos’ relationship, and also the rise and fall of Strexcorp, and Koshekh having kittens (!!!!) and the tiny city at the back of the bowling alley.
Cecil’s voice is just so smooth and calming, and WTNV is so well written and sweet and endearing.
A/N: Idk. I felt angsty today so I wrote this. I was bored too…
Work had been rather hard on you
lately. Your boss had been giving you overtime and it was wearing you down. You
just wanted to sleep at this point but sadly life had other plans. Instead of
walking into a peaceful home where you could simply go to sleep and not have to
worry about being woken up until the afternoon seeing as it was Friday, you
walked into a home where a demon version of one of your closest friends awaited
late.” You placed your keys down and sighed. Your elbows rested on the counter
and your face was placed in your hands.
I know, Dark.” Irritation laced your voice with a dangerous tone, like a
warning that if one thing was said in the wrong way you would explode. Dark
stood from the couch and adjusted the suit before approaching you. He gripped
your chin lightly and tilted your head up.
your mouth princess. I don’t like your tone.” You clenched your teeth in anger.
With those words, Dark had completely torn any self-control and composure you
had. You slapped his hand away. He looked taken back but said nothing when you
grabbed you wallet, keys and phone and left. You didn’t want to deal with this
now, you didn’t want to deal with anything right now.
drove to the nearest hotel, ignoring any calls or texts that you got from Dark.
He was supposed to be your rock, the one person that makes you feel better when
you’re down, but he somehow always found a way to make it worse. Why did you
ever agree to date him again?
Because he was the first man to ever love
that even true? Did he even love you? He never said he did. He treated you like
he owned you. It was healthy. In fact, he tried to kill you the first time you
two met. The only reason he didn’t was because you slapped him when he put his
hand around your throat.
parked your car in the lot and got out. You walked in and went straight for the
desk. Once you had gotten the room key you went and passed out on the bed. It
was the first peaceful sleep you had in a while. Usually Dark’s weird aura gave
you restless nights.
woke up around two in the morning to another call from Dark. By now you were
fed up with this behavior. You picked up your phone and texted Dark.
Dark stop harassing me. I’ll be back tomorrow
to get my stuff and I’ll be out of your way for good. You won’t have to deal
with my ‘tone’ anymore.
turned your phone off and went back to sleep. The bed seemed even more
comfortable now that you could appreciate it without interruption.
eluded you and the few that you had were good memories that you had with Dark.
Memories like when he had made you dinner for your birthday. Memories like when
he poofed the two of you to a secluded beach when you needed time together. Memories
like your first kiss on New Year’s Eve when he got jealous over how Anti kept
flirting you so he dunked you at midnight and kissed you like his life depended

and sat up from the bed. You rubbed the sleep from your eyes and let out a

to see him leaning against the wall. You swung your feet over the side of the
bed before giving a response.

the ache in your chest when you remembered the events. Dark gave out a sigh and
flashed before you when you tried to walk away.
understand humans well,” Dark trailed after you when you went to the mirror and
scrunched your nose at your messy reflection. “I’m still unsure of how I’m
supposed to act and what I’m supposed to do in these situations.” He gripped
your shoulders and turned you so you could face him.
you don’t own me. A relationship is supposed to be two people loving each other,
being there when they need it and caring
how the other partner feels!” You looked to him and felt tears prick at your
eyes. “I know you don’t get this! You’re a demon and I constantly forget that. You
don’t know how to treat people and it might just be better if I found someone
who was human.” You looked to the dirty carpet as tears slid down your cheeks.
Dark huffed and stood straight again.
If that’s what you want then that’s what will happen. I’ll leave you alone.”
When Y/N first met someone, she was terrified that they’d give her the same look that everyone always did: a mix of confusion and pity.
Confusion because they never really understood why she didn’t talk, why she refused to utter even a simple word or phrase.
And pity because they assumed she had gone through some horrible and tragic event, one that lead her to not speaking.
But she never bothered to correct them, to find her own way of explaining that she just could never find the right words, and so she never used any. She simply remained silent.
When Y/N met Joe, she worried that he would give her that look, and think she was weird because she never said anything back.
But then he opened his mouth and said more than enough for the two of them. And never looked at her with anything but kindness and gratefulness.
It was while they were backstage at Vidcon, he was nervous before heading up on stage, and she had been working as a stagehand. She had noticed his fidgeting and the way he kept pacing around the small room.
Knowing that he needed a distraction, she grabbed his hand and lead him from the room.
“What are you doing? Where are we going? What the fu—” He stopped rambling out questions when they stepped outside onto a small balcony, the warm LA sun touching their skin. “Oh.”
Y/N nodded, leaning against the railing.
“This is amazing…” He muttered, gazing across traffic and buildings. “Does everyone know about this place?”
Shaking her head, she tucked a piece of hair behind her ear, glancing at him from the corner of her eyes.
“Thank you. I needed this.” Joe smiled at her, and she offered a shy smile back. “You don’t say much, do you?” He had noticed her throughout the day, the way she silently moved around the room, calming people without a single word.
Blushing, she turned her gaze back to the landscape in front of them, shaking her head a little.
“Thats alright, I probably talk too much. I ramble on about random shit, and then it spirals into something else, and then next thing I know, I’ve been talking non stop for nearly ten minutes. And look, now I’m rambling again. Should I shut up?” He glanced over at her, smiling as she laughed silently. “I’ll take that as a yes.”
By time they went in for his panel, Joe was a lot less nervous, and had talked her ear off for a whole lot longer, but she didn’t complain, enjoying having someone not look at her like a freak.
After his panel, he found her quickly, already starting to ramble on about more things. Next thing Y/N knew, she had somehow agreed to meeting for coffee with him later, exchanging numbers before separating, and a smile on her face.
From then, things grew. A simple friendship turned into fun flirting and eventually a relationship that she never expected, but couldn’t imagine not having in her life. He was the voice she could never find.
Joe never pressed her to talk, or asked her to try and speak, asking her yes or no questions when he wanted an answer, and waiting patiently for her to type out a more elaborate answer. He never wondered why she couldn’t say the words out loud that she managed to type.
One day she did ask him, why he was okay with her not talking, and if he wished she would talk.
“We communicate, don’t we?” Joe asked back, and she had nodded. “We’ve learned things about one another, haven’t we?” Another nod. “You know I care about you, right?” Blushing, she nodded once more. “Then why should you need to talk? I love you for who you are, Y/N, and because you let me talk for ever,” He joked, “So whether you want to talk or not is up to you.” He shrugged, as if it was the most simple thing in the world.
She smiled, kissing him softly before mouthing the words I love you too back to him.
“I know you do, love. Never doubted it.” Joe grinned, pulling her back in for another kiss.
With him, she never had to worry about a look of confusion or pity, she never had to worry about being misunderstood or pressured into talking.
With him, she was just as normal as everyone else.
Most days, Lily Evans is a pepper pot of a human being,
filled with a rather infectious zest for life that has served her fairly well
over her twenty-four some-odd years.
However, that enthusiasm fails even Lily Evans on the fourth consecutive
day of torrential rain when she finds a hole in her galoshes, loses her
umbrella to a particularly violent gust of wind, and is further drenched when a
passing car speeds through a mud puddle and covers her from nose to knees in
cold, wet grime.
Still, when faced with this sort of situation, Lily prides
herself on her proverbial ‘stiff upper lip’ and ability to move past life’s
little frustrations. Except during the
last month before the annual Helping Hands fundraiser, which would be more appropriately
termed ‘The Never-Ending Hellish Month Lily Evans Would Prefer to Have Struck
From the Calendar.” But apparently
that’s too ‘negative’ and ‘long-winded,’ so Lily plows through for mostly for the
sake of the much deserving children and secondarily her continued
employment. However, Lily still contests
that any event which requires an eight person meeting that lasts more than
forty five minutes to determine whether aubergine
is more purple or blue needs a priority assessment.
She does consider herself lucky though, despite her
occasional complaints – made almost exclusively to the ever attentive Alice who
manages to nod and smile like a champ – to be working in a creative and
productive environment where she gets to do work she’s excited about. And as bad as the Wednesday morning drenching
incident was, she always keeps a spare jumper in her office, and her coat
really absorbed most of the hit, so she pushed thoughts of impending overpriced
dry cleaning out of her mind and went about her business, working late into the
evening putting the finishing touches on her responsibilities and splurging for
an Uber home when she saw the dark, puddle covered streets.
The worst of it really comes the following morning, when she
wakes to a stuffed nose, crusty eyes, and a headache that radiates through her
skull. But it’s fundraiser day, so she
dresses quickly, gulps down a little too much DayQuil, shoves the bottle in her
purse, and pours a travel mug full of peppermint tea with copious amounts of
honey, and she’s out the door. And then
she’s back in the door to grab her
garment bag and dress shoes for the event that evening, and back out, making work
before the clouds even have a chance to think
The rest of the day is spent medicating her problem,
avoiding infecting coworkers who soon take to avoiding her like the plague, and
double, triple, and quadruple checking everything for that night. Including confirming their ‘special guests’
for the bachelor auction, which goes mostly well despite her new found ‘sultry’
toned voice. And being Lily Evans, she
only grumbles to herself for a few minutes when some up and coming actor’s
agent says his name is Sirius, makes an accompanying joke that her congested
brain can’t take, and then calls her Mr Evans before he hangs up. Maybe she’ll find him tonight and sneeze on him.
Holy shit. Holy shit. Holy shit. Holy shit.
The main words running through your brain amongst the utter, burning shock of seeing who was in front of you.
Of all the people, did he really have to be here? Did he really have to be friends with Tobi? Did he have to be such close friends with him? Him?
He looked different but not too different. His hair had grown out more now, his face and muscles more defined. But still the Simon you knew. Mousy brown hair on his head and piercing eyes focused on yours.
You hadn’t seen him in so long. Since you were 18 in fact. Since you first left for travelling, for going to make your mark on the world. It had been messy towards the end. You were going to leave for two years at a minimum and he would be staying in England. Though he adored you more than anything, it would be impossible for anything between you to work. So things had ended. As inexperienced teenagers, you left each other. And of course, it was tough. But you went on to accomplish what you had always wanted to. Help charities, swim in the wild with dolphins, explore rainforests, climb to the top of mountains and dive to the bottom of foreign seas. You’d spent two years having the best time of your life and by the time you returned, Simon was simply a happy memory. A time of your life. A past event.
Though to Simon, it hadn’t happened like that. He’d moved in with the guys, he’d become successful on YouTube, built his career doing what he loved but there was always something missing. The girl that put the biggest smile on his face. That beat him in video games and laughed at his defeat. That knew him better than he knew himself. He always told himself there was no chance of him ever finding anyone as good as you. And that’s why he had always been single. Any girl he met, or spoke to, he found flaws in them that didn’t match to you. They didn’t make him laugh like you did. They didn’t touch his arm and make him feel that immature electricity that never went away. Nobody could be even close enough to being a match to you.
“Do you guys know each other?” Tobi asks, his arm still comfortably around your waist.
“Um” You start, “Yeah, our parents have known each other for years” You smile.
“Yeah, what a coincidence?” Simon exclaims, “Its great to see you”
“Yeah, you too” You nod, returning his friendly hug.
“I’ll just grab us some drinks, okay babe?” Tobi comments, heading off to the kitchen.
You notice JJ looking between you and Simon and widen your eyes slightly at him. When you and Simon were together, it was more of a long distance style. You lived an hour away so you knew JJ but only as your boyfriend’s best friend.
“Right, we should go grab the stuff to record” Josh nods before being followed out by the ones you now knew as Ethan, Vik and Harry.
JJ and Simon stop behind.
“I’m right aren’t I? You two…” JJ begins.
“Yeah” Simon replies quickly.
“Fucking hell” His friend mumbles, “I should leave you to it”
He quickly heads outside, evidently going to Tobi to stop him from entering again.
“So, how are you?” You ask politely.
“Im good, thanks” He scratches the back of his neck, “You?”
“Great” You say, “What a small world ay? You knowing Tobi” You chuckle lightheartedly.
“Yeah, tell me about it” He laughs, a hint of wanting to say more in his voice.
“I can’t believe you guys know each other” Tobi exclaims when he walks in.
“Yeah we were just saying” You smile.
“How do your parents know each other then?” Tobi asks inquisitively, taking a seat with you beside him on the couch.
“Our dads did a job together once and our families met through that” You explain. That was true.
“This is crazy” He chuckles, “Have you seen anything of the house yet babe?”
“No nothing” You shake your head.
“I’ll show you around” Simon states, “Tobi, the guys can help you set up for your video”
“Ahh thanks man” Your boyfriend responds and you follow Simon around the house.
You try your best to focus on the different rooms so you didn’t get lost whilst staying here but you still felt in a weird sense of shock that he was here.
“We can’t tell him” Simon states simply as the pair of you walk up to his room.
“What?” You frown, slightly disgusted.
“We can’t tell Tobi that we used to date” He shakes his head.
“I’m not lying to him!” You exclaim, “No, I can’t”
“You have to! We can’t suddenly admit that we used to date until the age of 18 and now you suddenly happen to be dating him!” He retorts, stubborn as usual.
“I don’t give a fuck. If he has a problem with it, we’ll deal with it. But he’s my boyfriend and I’m not comfortable with keeping a huge part of my life away from him” You reply. Truth in a relationship meant a lot to you. Even if it did sound cringey. It was one of the reasons Tobi adored you so much.
“You haven’t changed” he chuckles.
“Why shouldn’t we tell him?” You ask.
“Because-” he starts, “ Because I’m still in love with you”
You freeze more than you did when you first saw his face.
“Wh-” you begin.
“Because ever since you left, I’ve not stopped being completely fascinated by you. Like I always was. I’ve not stopped laughing at your jokes whenever I remember them or smiling when I think of you” He explains, “I’ve never stopped remembering the girl that made those years the best years of my life” He croaks.
From the corner of your eye, you notice a box in the corner of his room that you gave to him on his 18th birthday as one of his 18 presents. It was filled with small memories of the pair of you. Photos, movie tickets, snow globes from places you’d been to on holiday, small cards with your funniest quotes or jokes. Everything of his relationship with his babygirl.
“I figured I should keep it” He smiles when his eyes follow yours, “I tried to get rid of it when you left but there’s so much in there that I couldn’t bare to lose. I’ve never shown the guys”
“Simon, that part of our life was when we were teenagers and young and innocent. And that’s great. And I loved that. But its not the point. I’ve moved on, I’ve travelled the world, I’ve seen different cultures, I’ve changed. And if you haven’t, then okay. But I love Tobi now and im happy with him. We’re really happy. High school doesn’t last forever Si” You sigh and he looks down.
“Simon, you ready to film?” Ethan calls upstairs.
“We’ll be right down” He responds loudly, his eyes not leaving yours.
You nod and walk past him, heading instantly downstairs.
“What’s wrong babe?” Tobi frowns as soon as you walked into the lounge. He instantly knew something was happening as always.
“Its okay, I just remembered there’s something I need to talk to you about” You force a smile, trying your best to ignore Simon’s lingering stare.
I used to work on my university campus radio station in college. We used to talk about current events around the school, any news around the surrounding town, and played requested songs for students, something our school surprisingly allowed. I remember a very weird couple of months where students who tuned into the show constantly requested a song called “See You After, Babe”, a pop song by some one-hit-wonder group called Symmetry Icon, the dumbest name for a band I’ve ever heard. But that song was huge around October and November of 2008. As one of the campus radio’s DJs, I had to play that song over like a hundred times in two months. I heard it everywhere, in malls, gas stations, on real radio stations, and I think even on MTV.
Something was weird about that song, but I couldn’t remember exactly what. I tried Googling the song and band, but nothing came up in the results for either. Not even YouTube had a single clip of the song.
Here are some movies that I’ve seen that adress the issue of physical disability on the plot. Though the list is very short, the idea of posting this is for you to make it longer with your own recommendations.
1. Les intouchables (2011) by Olivier Nakache and Éric Toledano.
French drama about the friendship between Philippe, who is rich and quadriplegic, and his stubborn assistant Driss. This movie is A-MAZING! It’s a must, disabled or not. The film won several awards and both starring actors are super hot, plus, “Philippe” is adorable. I fell in love with him, I wanna marry him and have french kids. (+ Loved the “ear joke” ).
2. Kiss me (2013)by Jeff Probst.
Drama about a girl, Zoe, who is diagnosed with scoliosis at 15 and is forced to wear a back brace. She falls in love with the father of the kids she babysits. It stars Emily Osment, for teenage fans. It’s kindof a teenage drama, but it sums pretty well the pressures on being disabled at that age. (+The plaster scene is gold! It was such a flashback for me that I shed a tear).
3. El bulto (1991)by Gabriel Retes Mello.
Mexican movie about Lauro, a journalist who returns from a coma after twenty years and struggles with recovery and adapting to the whole changes in his family, politics, ideology and culture. He starts a romance with Adela, a friend of the family who used to take care of him. This film is old but still awesome, though idk if you can find it with english subtitles. (+ I adore the scene when Adela shows naked to Lauro to make love to him and he is so overwhelmed that he falls off the wheelchair).
4. The Brooke Ellison Story (2004) by Christopher Reeve (YES! Superman)
It’s the story of this girl who was the first quadriplegic to graduate from Harvard (in science, I think). It has a pinch of inspiration bullshit, but it’s also rough as it’s so true. (+Looking for the data, I found that Brooke Ellison ran for U.S. State Senate in 2006 :O And the prom scene made me cry like a lady).
There’s a Stephen Hawking movie starred by Benedict Cumberbatch, but I can’t recommend it as I haven’t seen it.
About a recently paralysed cyclist coming to terms with his disability and finding love. He is also gay but to be honest, it doesn’t make much difference to the plot apart from the fact that the love interest is male. I love that it is not the main plot and just something else added in. Independent movie that won some awards. You can watch it here.
6. Avatar (2009) by James Cameron
(My favourite film ever) “A paraplegic Marine dispatched to the moon Pandora on a unique mission becomes torn between following his orders and protecting the world he feels is his home.” I love it so much because the fact he is in a wheelchair has no impact on the plot; it doesn’t matter its just a thing that happens. It still deals with his reaction to it though.
7. Ondine (2009) by Neil Jordan
“This is an Irish tale of romance and tragedy set on the life of a fisherman by the name of Ciracuse. Here, rescues a woman from the sea. However, she begs him not to expose. So, he keeps her at a secret hideout. The man is stuck between the Ondine and his drunkard wife and their paths intertwine.” I don’t remember that much about it but Cirscuse’s daughter Ondine uses a wheelchair and is waiting for a kidney or liver transplant. (I can’t remember which!) It’s weird but it has a nice ending. It’s also the same again, the fact that she uses a wheelchair has no impact on the plot but the difficulties for her family are dealt with a bit.
8. How to Train Your Dragon (2010) & How to Train Your Dragon 2 (2014)
(These are kids films but I really like them!) Set in the mythical world of burly Vikings and wild dragons, and based on the book by Cressida Cowell, this action comedy tells the story of Hiccup, a Viking teenager who doesn’t exactly fit in with his tribe’s longstanding tradition of heroic dragon slayers. Hiccup’s world is turned upside down when he encounters a dragon that challenges him and his fellow Vikings to see the world from an entirely different point of view. *spoilers for the first film* Right at the end of the first one, Hiccup loses a leg and uses a prosthetic. He continues to use the prosthetic in the second film. I love the first one and hope the second will be just as good! One of the other characters has one hand and the dragon is also disabled (for most of the first film). Hiccup having one leg also has no impact on the plot. (you can see a running theme here!) There’s also a TV series with these but I don’t know if he has one leg in them or not. I’ve got the DVDs to find out! He does in a short film in the series too.
9. X-Men Franchise
Superhero films. Professor Charles Xavier is in a wheelchair. I’m not sure how many of the films and they’re not in a chronological order. I’ve never seen them so I can’t comment on what the portrayal/whatever was like.
10. Hawking (2004) by Philip Martin
I have seen this and can recommend it. It’s Benedict Cumberbatch’s first leading role and he did very well considering how hard this would have been to play. It’s about Stephen Hawking around the time he got diagnosed with motor neurone disease. It has the decline which it really important as I never see gradual declines anywhere in films. You can tell it’s a bit dramatised compared to what actually happened to him but if you read Stephen Hawking’s accounts of the time, some parts make it directly into the film. It was a TV movie but can be found online and on youtube because on Benedict. It’s also now available to buy on DVD on amazon.
11. Forrest Gump (1994) by Robert Zemeckis
“This Academy Award winner for Best Picture stars Tom Hanks as the good hearted, but painfully slow Forrest Gump, a man who manages to somehow be involved with almost every major event in history during the last half of the 20th Century. Spanning the course of his life, the story follows him as he grows from a weak child to a war hero to a shrimp boat captain, all the while pining for the love of his childhood friend Jenny, played by Robin Wright.” *Spoilers* Lieutenant Dan loses his legs in Vietnam and that is dealt with a fair bit. He is in the film a fair bit and in my essays on the film I classed him as a main character. You might also consider Forrest as being mentally disabled. This really is a fantastic film and if you haven’t seen it go and watch it now!
12. The Elephant Man (1980) by David Lynch
"A Victorian surgeon rescues a heavily disfigured man who is mistreated while scraping a living as a side-show freak. Behind his monstrous facade, there is revealed a person of intelligence and sensitivity.” (Not seen the whole thing myself so can’t comment but I think it’s supposed to be pretty good. It’s also interesting for how people with disabilities were treated in Victorian times.
13. My Left Foot (1989) by Jim Sheridan
“Christy Brown, born with cerebral palsy, learns to paint and write with his only controllable limb - his left foot.” Interesting for comparing then and now etc. Also how a family with very limited income dealt with it.
14. Quid Pro Quo (2008) by Carlos Brooks
“A semi-paralyzed radio reporter is sent out to investigate a story that leads him into an odd subculture and on a journey of disturbing self-realization” All I can say is that it’s quite interesting but very weird. The ending is especially weird.
15. The Fault in Our Stars (2014) by Josh Boone
For the Book: “Despite the tumor-shrinking medical miracle that has bought her a few years, Hazel has never been anything but terminal, her final chapter inscribed upon diagnosis. But when a gorgeous plot twist named Augustus Waters suddenly appears at Cancer Kid Support Group, Hazel’s story is about to be completely rewritten.” I love the book of this and hope the film will be just as good. Augustus Waters has one leg and there are other characters with varying physical disabilities. The issue of physical disability is dealt with really well in the book and especially a bit at an airport which I think is fantastic (I really hope it’s in the film). I can definitely recommend the book and I hope I’ll be able to recommend the film.
That’s all I can think of at the moment. I’m sure I know more though. There’s a new Julia Roberts one where she’s in a wheelchair but I have no idea what it’s about or what it’s called. My Sister’s Keeper maybe counts but it’s more dying and morals than disability but the book is much better.
Could you do a dodie imagine with dodie and the reader dating??
So this takes place when dodie was nominated for the shorty awards just a little while ago, but i made dodie younger than she is now. Think 18, 19 ish. Also i know the shorty awards are for youtubers and the like, but lets pretend it’s more for up and coming people. Also you know me had to include J2 somehow sooooo…
When you turned thirteen you had your first boyfriend. Your Dad almost had a heart attack, but the relationship lasted a week so he didn’t need to worry for long. When you were fifteen you started to date another boy, your Dad cried watching you go on your first official date. That relationship lasted four months, when he broke up with you, you weren’t that heart broken.
By the time you had graduated highschool, and had gone off to college you had experienced your share of boyfriends. No matter how many dates you went on, or how many boys you kissed, you never really felt anything for any of them.
While at college you knew you would have to get a job, so you looked around for months before finding one as a character on supernatural for an episode. That one episode turned into two, and then eleven, you soon became a re-occurring character. After two years on the show you had grown a small fan base, that fan base was dedicated enough to get you nominated for a shorty award.
Jacksepticeye PAX East 2017 Panel Intro Transcript
I saw a lot of people asking for a transcript of the intro, especially the Anti parts, so here we go! If something needs to be changed let me know.
Jack Well hello there! How’s everybody doing? Are you all good? Are you all enjoying your PAX? Good! Welcome to the panel! I know this is a little bit of an unorthodox sort of intro, but I had a cool idea for this one. I had a cool idea, before I actually get up and do the whole Q&A thing, and before we start (audio skips and repeats “before we start”) …this whole panel all completely, I wanted to do a little game with everybody. Because you guys know how much I love audience interaction and you know how much I love getting in touch with you and doing cool stuff with you. So what I wanted to do with this, since it’s a live event, what I want everyone to do right now…uh okay so bare with me… If you have a phone, a lot of you probably have a phone, right? Hopefully. Maybe. Um, if you have a phone, or you have a camera, or you have an iPad, or anything like that that’s able to record something, we’re all gonna do something together right now and we’re all gonna record a message all together. Okay? Are you with me so far? I… I guess I have to leave a minute of space… in here for everybody to actually be able to take out something… This is uh…this is a little awkward… Right okay I don’t know this is gonna be weird…(laughs) Is everybody ready? Okay, so, what I want everybody to do is start recording and then record a little message saying… (audio cuts out) And when you’re doing that, then what we’re gonna do… (audio cuts out) With your phone in your hand, and I think that that will be a really cool thing if…(audio cuts out)
(a quick series of distorted video/audio of Jack from several of his videos plays)
Anti (laughs) Did you miss me? (whispered)
Did you miss me? Look at you all! Just sitting there! You all thought I was gone, not worrying about anything. (laughs) You all thought I was gone, but I’ve been here this entire time! Keeping an eye on things… You stopped paying attention! Well I hope you’re happy. You’ve found someone new. Threw me aside. Someone to replace me. I’m not going anywhere! I’m always there, always watching.
Suffolk County Charter School: It Actually Happened (sort of)
I haven’t seen anyone connect this any where else so I thought I would share what I found out by accident. If its old news then ignore me
Wow. Okay. So, I stumbled upon this area in my exploration of the Commonwealth Wasteland in Fallout 4 months ago before I completed my first play through. Suffolk County Charter School.
It was creepy and had a story to uncover so I went in. Im sure most of you know what I’m talking about so, no big deal. Its not secret or hidden. Just one of those cool Fallout areas that don’t have a quest attached but you feel compelled to figure out what the fuck happened.
Inside there were pink ghouls.
And pink goo.
While splattering these guys and looting everything in the facility (because Fallout) I uncovered the story behind this location. If you haven’t found it yet, SPOILERS, heres the summary:
“In exchange for funding, Principal Jackie Hudson agreed to implement the government’s experimental Nutritional Alternative Paste Program (NAPP) at the school. Participation required limiting food consumption within the school to a government-provided food paste. This decision was apparently made without the consent of faculty, students, or parents.
Per Principal Hudson’s announcements, the NAPP was launched on October 18 and any outside food was to be confiscated from then on. These announcements can be heard on three holotapes found throughout the school.”
So yeah. I just murdered a bunch of kids that were unwittingly being experimented on. I felt sort of shitty. My Sole Survivor didn’t give a fuck. She would gladly murder actual babies for that issue of Unstoppables or a bobblehead. She’s a collector, almost to the point of compulsion.
I found this area so interesting and tragic that I sought more info on the Fallout Wiki. There (and other sources/theories I’ve read) talk about how the pink goo is probably a reference to the film The Stuff (1985).
A more popular theory is that its actually referencing “The Pink Slime”
“The food paste as a whole is a reference to Pink Slime, a food additive consisting of low-fat meat which was ground into a paste. It’s particularly infamous after being widely used as a meal alternative in American school lunches during 2012, which resulted in major controversy.”
Huh. Okay cool. I was satisfied with these being possible references. It made sense. And I never thought about it again. I mean, it was like, a year ago or some shit. I don’t know, a long ass time ago.
But then last night, while avoiding doing adult things, my ADHD kicked in as my meds wore off and I decided to hyper focus on watching weird YouTube videos covering topics like horrendous incidents, unsolved mysteries, conspiracy theories, that kind of stuff. Basically I sat there in my own world watching Rob Dyke and Dark5 videos.
Im not weird.
Anyway, Thats when I saw this and holy shit. I immediately thought of Suffolk County Charter School in Fallout 4. Something I hadn’t thought about in forever from a game I haven’t really played in months.
You can watch the video or heres a quick summary of events that took place at a school in Massachusetts:
“A group of former students who ate radioactive oatmeal as unwitting participants in a food experiment will share a $1.85 million settlement from Quaker Oats and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
More than 100 boys at the Fernald School in Waltham, Mass., were fed cereal containing radioactive iron and calcium in the 1940’s and 1950’s. The diet was part of an experiment to prove that the nutrients in Quaker oatmeal travel throughout the body.” New York Times, 1998
Yep. It happened in Massachusetts. MIT was involved.
Maybe all of this is stupid to everyone but honestly shit like this is why I LOVE video games. A simple location with no real importance to the main game (except collectibles) held a really interesting story that stuck with me, at least subconsciously.
Easter eggs and references in games aren’t new but the fact that even after researching the in-game location I didn’t see any mention of the Fernald School (which could have been because the game was still fairly new then) and then randomly I stumbled upon what I think is unquestionably the real inspiration for this area is so cool to me.
Fallout lore is so dense and so far reaching, referencing other games, media, pop culture, and real life events. I fell in love all over again with this franchise based on this one small detail that dosent even matter in the grand scheme of the story.
I had to share this because I couldn’t get it off my mind. That moment of being like “HOLY SHIT WAIT. THIS IS IN FALLOUT.” was something that I’m sure a lot of gamers can relate to and its exciting and interesting.
Louise the Party Crasher: (Based off the vlog Parties and Panels Sprinkleofchatter)
Summary: Based on Louise’s vlog when she found Dan and Phil hiding in the back room of the Playlist party. What if they were doing some not so innocent things? Contains Phan, humor, pre-smut, and general adorableness.
Louise liked parties, don’t get her wrong. Sometimes, however, they just got too overwhelming. By now a lot of her friends had gotten into the punch and were all a bit crazy. Zoe clung close to Alfie as they danced rather wildly, as did many of her other friends. Louise looked around for anybody to hang out with who wasn’t too trashed.
Will couldn’t fight the wide smile to broke out on his face when he saw the dark haired waiting by he gate, leaning against it as a small group of three girls surrounded him, talking animatedly.
Nico’s gaze wondered over the crowd of people that passed him, almost pleading as he watched out for the familiar face among the sea of unfamiliar ones.
“What’s a cute New Yorker doing all the way here in Austin? I love your accent.” Will stopped in his tracks once he could hear the girls around Nico talk. The son of Hades ran a hand through his shaggy hair and shrugged. “Oh, don’t be like that, hon.”
“I’m meeting someone here,” Nico explained. “And I’m from Italy, not New York. I haven’t even been to New York in two years.”
“Who are you meeting?” Another girl asked, sounding slightly upset about Nico waiting there to meet someone. That fact made Will’s smile wider. A boy with hipster glasses gave him a weird look, but Will couldn’t care less with the words that came from Nico’s mouth next.
“I’m meeting my boyfriend.” Will watched the girls freeze before bringing their hands up to their mouths.
“That is so cute!”
Will watched as Nico’s eyes widened upon seeing him, lips turning up lightly into a smirk. Will could feel his heart pounding against his rib cage just looking at the son of Hades.
“Nico, hi.” Will bit down on his lip as he joined the small group. The girls gaped at him before muttering something along the lines of all the attractive boys in their year being gay. Will ignored them and watched as Nico held something out to him.
“Happy birthday, jackass.” The small box was wrapped in a metallic green paper, decorated with a bow Will knew Hazel had tied. Nico could barely do up his shoelaces.
Will’s eyes flickered up to Nico’s as he pulled at the paper. “Tell me you didn’t come all the way from Long Island just to give me this.”
“I wanted to see you too,” Nico said softly. “And I didn’t come alone.”
“You better not have come here the way you usually do.” Will warned. The box was free of paper, but Will was too distracted by the laugh that came from Nico to remove the last layer that separated him and his surprise.
“No, Jason got the ‘okay’ from his dad and we flew. Now open your present.” With a firm not Will opened the box.
Inside was a leather bracelet with a silver sun and moon charm on it, engraved so finely it was obvious it wasn’t a cheap present. In the centre of the sun was a yellow diamond and in the centre of the moon there was a black one - whether or not they were real Will didn’t even want to consider.
“Oh my gods, Nico…” Will didn’t know what to say. So he wrapped his arms around his boyfriend and breathed out a thank you into the crook of his neck instead. As soon as Will stepped away from Nico he put the bracelet on.
“Ready to go?” Nico asked. Will tilted his head in confusion, eyebrows furrowing. Nico chuckled at the expression and took Will’s hand in his won, tugging him through the gate.
Whereas Nico still wasn’t completely comfortable with public displays of affection holding hands was something he found himself to be okay with. Coincidently, I was also something Will loved.
“Where are we going?”
“To your house,” Nico answers as if it were obvious. “You didn’t think it was just Jason and me that came here for you, did you?” Will shrugged. “There’s a bunch of us here. We’re throwing you a party because your mother said you weren’t celebrating your birthday this year.”
“Well with all the low key apocalyptic events that have happened the past few years my birthday seems like a minor thing to celebrate.” Will nudged Nico with his shoulder playfully. Nico stumbled, almost knocking into an elderly man that looked at their entwined hands and turned his nose up in silent but obvious disgust.
“So celebrate actually making it through two wars to reach your sixteenth birthday.”
The two demigods made idle conversation as they walked, Will talking about his last few months without Nico at school and Nico about his time going between Camp Half Blood and Camp Jupiter.
Most people looked at them with distaste, their opinions matching those people saw about on television. The odd person or two would smile at them kindly, the fact that their hands were enveloped by those of the same gender not a problem. As it should be.
The usual half an hour walk seemed to go too quickly with Nico around, Will noticed. It felt like a few minutes previously he was watching his boyfriend talk to the girls about meeting him. And now he was outside his house which had been decorated in balloons with the number sixteen on them.
Nico gave Will a smile before gesturing for him to go first, bowing with his hand extended as the words 'sir’ slipped past his lips. Will rolled his eyes but walked past Nico nonetheless, opening the door to his house and walking in without hesitation.
The shout of 'surprise’ didn’t faze Will as much as he assumed it would have. Yet again, not much could frighten him after serving two wars against Titans and Giants.
“Happy Birthday, honey.” Will’s mother hugged him tightly, humming content lay as Will wrapped his arms around her too.
“When you said you were going to force a party on me I didn’t know you were being serious.” Will’s mother merely chuckled in reply.
“Happy birthday, Will.” Hazel said sweetly, embracing Will with her hands in his shoulders and a warm smile. “Have you had a good day?”
“It’s good now.” Will admitted, looking over at his shoulder to see Nico talking to Jason and Piper. “Thank you so much, Hazel. For wrapping the present, I mean.”
Hazel laughed. “It was nothing.”
Several more people wished Will a happy birthday while Kayla and Austin refused to until they were told why they didn’t know Will had such a 'cute and cuddly mom’. Lou Ellen and Cecil spent the rest of the day calling his mother 'Auntie Naomi’, which didn’t seem to bother Will’s mother but bothered him more than he would admit to his friends.
They ate an array of junk food and talked. They danced and retold stories. They listened to music and encouraged Austin to play his saxophone, which Piper recorded so he could put it on YouTube later.
It was more fun than Will could have ever imagines, having those he cares around him for his birthday. Usually it was just him and his mother eating an unhealthy amount of cake and pizza before going to the cinema.
The only fault Will could find in the day was how hanging with his friends meant that he was away from Nico.
He kept looking over to the son of Hades, who seemed content eating finger food and talking to Jason throughout the day. When he saw Will watching him from across he room he would wave lightly and smile. It killed Will to see his boyfriend being so adorable when he couldn’t have a moment alone to just talk.
So he got the second best thing.
“How did you and Nico start dating, honey?” Will’s mother asked, sitting on the countertop with a toothpick hanging between her lips.
“That’s an adorable story!” Jason announced loudly. Will looked back to see Jason pushing Nico through the crowd until he was at Will’s side. “Go on, Nico. Tell your boyfriends mother how you got together.”
Nico glared at Jason. The Roman merely shook his head and walked off to find his girlfriend.
“Will and I had both had a pretty obvious-to-everyone-but-us crush on each other for a few months before we actually started dating.” Nico explained to Naomi. Will took Nico’s hand in his own, squeezing it reassuringly. “We were practicing out sword fighting because Will sucks at everything that medical or using a bow. I bet him and someone - probably Percy, but I don’t know - shouted at us to just get together already. So Will asked me if I wanted to go get a McDonalds and we started dating from there.”
“Ah, McDonalds.” Will’s mother put her hand to her chest. “The epitome of romance for fifteen year olds!”
“Mom, stop.” Will rolled his eyes.
“How did you even get out of camp and to the nearest McDonalds?”
Will laughed at the shocked expression in his mothers face and pressed his lips against Nico’s cheek. The son of Hades blushed at the feature, but Will was too happy to care.
For more than once that day Will was happy that he was a demigod. Without the godly 'dna’ in his veins he would never have met Nico di Angelo.
Ahh! It’s one am and I don’t want to revise shit about America for my history exam so here you go!
warnings: alcohol, smut (but it’s not overly descriptive) & swearing
word count: 3900
description: final bows have been taken, the curtains have closed and the bittersweet taste of the tour ending is soon replaced by one too many cocktails. through their drunken hazes, they end up alone together, reminiscing on the old days and laughing in awe at this crazy life they have. and then phil is kissing dan and it’s not so funny anymore.
“You know, I’ve spent my whole life trying to create something worth it. Something that people will remember,” Dan says and squints up at the stars, “And I have. I’ve done more than I ever could have imagined, y’know, this tour has been incredible and the book and everything, but,” his gaze drops to his hands, “but I still feel like there’s this one thing that’s missing and I don’t know what that is.”
“Except I sort of do know,” he adds as an afterthought, and maybe it’s his alcohol intake or maybe it’s the way the moonlight is falling across Phil’s face, but the words are going to fall off of his tongue and he can’t be bothered to stop them.
a/n: this fic has been a monster to complete, and i’m so happy to be finally posting it! it’s been a month since i posted and wow that’s awful. i hope this makes up for it.
“Oh come on, Y/N, it’ll be fun. More hands on than what you’re used to. Think of it as babysitting, but with a functioning adult who can communicate, making sure they get from point A to point B to meeting C on time. The only bugaboo in this is that I don’t know who the client is. But think of it as an adventure!”
Lifting your glasses up a bit, you pinch the bridge of your nose and sigh. You always let Y/F talk you into such things. And often it turns out just fine. But this time it just seems a bit off in your gut. Work has been fortunate enough to grant you a few gigs with media stars, but this assignment, rather, favor, left you with knots in your stomach.
“Look at it this way - if it is an absolute disaster… I’ll get you tickets to the show you’ve been dying to see for the last few months. You know I’ve got the hookup,” Y/F wiggled her eyebrows.
“Seriously, you couldn’t have just gotten the tickets, and saved me from whatever this is going to be? You do drive a hard bargain, and, well, you’re just lucky I don’t have much going on this week,” you sighed again, resigning to help out.
“You don’t know how huge this is, I can’t believe we got overbooked on clients this week. Must be a fairly big event coming through the area. Seriously, you won’t regret this, because if you do.. tickets.”
“Yeah yeah, just let me know when/where/dress code.”
Arriving at Y/F’s office early on Friday, she met with her boss. After a quick introduction, the boss hands both of you packets with info on the event, and what sort of work you’d be doing. The pleasant surprise was revealed that you were being “contracted” and therefore, being paid for your time.
Your new boss smiled, and simply said, “I heard you work with annoying customers, and frustrating situations. Those patience skills may come in handy with this one. I don’t expect any issues though really. Keep to the schedule, and have fun. I think you’ll do great. Now get going!”
Y/F tore her envelope open, read for a few moments, and looked glum.
“I don’t even know who this.. JK Simmons is. I saw JK and thought ROWLING, but this isn’t the same person, is it?”
You chuckled. “Not even close. Juno’s dad? The Farmers insurance guy? On Law and Order a lot? Seems like he’d be a really cool guy to hang out with actually.” A look of contemplation came over Y/F’s face, and she just shrugged.
“Whatever. Who do you have?”
Opening the envelope slowly, you read through the first few lines of text as you started chewing on your lip.
“Y/N, you’re doing that thing and making that face you make when you’re unsure… who is it already?”
You blinked, starting to open your mouth, but closed it again and made a bit of a huffing noise. You looked down at the page again, furrowed your brow, and reopened your mouth.
“Wait, what now? Did I hear you correctly? You’re kidding me, right? You must be kidding me,” she gasped, while trying to grab the papers from your hand.
“It must be a promo for I’m Not Here. I know they’re both in it. Weird. But yeah, it clearly has my name on the top, and my assignment is Sebastian freaking Stan.” It apparently was setting in that this was going to be a thing and not just a crazy joke in your head. Scenarios started playing out, drowning out the sound of Y/F prattling on and on about the man. You’d heard the stories before. You’ve seen the video clips on YouTube of his interviews, of the press tours, of the meet and greets at cons… Closing your eyes, you inhaled deeply and let it out slowly.

Y/N -> Your Name
After an evening filled with pizza, the new episode of Sherlock and some good laughs, Phil and Y/N decided it was time for bed. Phil went to throw out the empty pizza boxes while Y/N washed the dishes, making sure the kitchen was clean before she walked out. “I’m gonna go to bed now, I think.” She announced. “Goodnight!” Phil said with a smile. “Happy sleeptime.” Dan replied, and Y/N did a quick wave at the both of them before going up the stairs to her room. Once there, she closed the door behind her and put her pajamas on before sitting down on the bed. I’m living with Dan and Phil, she thought to herself, and it made her chuckle. If someone had told her this when she started making youtube videos back in 2012 she would never have believed them. It was still slightly unusual to her, but good. Safe, almost. She turned the lights off and crawled underneath her sheets, snoozing off after an eventful day.
hello everyone! so this is a part of a series of oneshots i created, in which dan and phil come out in each story. none of the stories are related or connected in any way, it’s jsut different circumstances! look forward to the next few parts :D
Summary: Dan and Phil come out in their newest DITL
Word Count: just under 3,500
Warnings: occasional mentions of smut (vivd, but don’t last very long) and small parts of angst
a/n: ive never been in a relationship, nor kissed anyone etc etc. the romantic parts are just my own fantasies and ideals for when i fall in love and this is what i imagine their relationship would be like if it were real - also i left this alone for about a day, but forgot that dan and phil actually werent dating and it took me almost an entire day to remember this is fiction oops
