Dan’s social life has never really exceeded the extent of going out for afternoon tea with his grandparents, so he has absolutely no idea what he’s doing here. Looking around at the violently flashing lights that are supposed to provide a ‘fun’ atmosphere doesn’t help, as each passing second only proves to remind him that he probably shouldn’t have agreed to this. Night clubs just aren’t his thing.
They never have been, actually. It’s just something about standing awkwardly among sweaty bodies grinding against each other to unnecessarily loud music that makes Dan completely opposed to the idea. The idea that he can’t use the bathroom without probably being attacked by an aggressive drunk or being practically drowned in another lightweight’s vomit if he so much as steps into one of the cubicles. If he dares to bump into someone accidentally and run the risk of being cussed at until he’s forced to leave or just simply be beaten up in front of the rest of the doe-eyed party-goers until he’s carried out on a stretcher. He’s never seen the appeal of it.
