today was a Rough day at work but it was considerably brightened by this commission of Throw Away the Key by a long-time friend @littlestpersimmon ! I’ve always adored their art (specifically in their comic @eeriecrests ) and this piece is no exception! Thank you sooooooooooooo much Bel! <3 <3 <3
I read what you add to 'what I don't understand about phandom' and I agree with you that we can't say we like dan more because we can relate to him better, which is also my case. why is this so forbidden, ugh.
honestly that’s probably my biggest issue with the phandom - the huge difference in how we treat dan vs how we treat phil. i almost never see anyone admitting dan is their favorite - i see quite a lot of people saying they prefer phil or like them both completely equally, but very few people will say they prefer dan. and tbh i just don’t believe their are so few people that favor him you know? and for a long time i said i liked them both equally just because i didnt want to get shit for liking dan more.
i do like them both, A LOT, they’re my top two favorite youtubers without a doubt, dan’s just my #1 because i relate to his experiences more than phil’s (i dropped out of college for god’s sake is it really any wonder i relate to dan more?), that doesn’t mean i don’t love and respect phil, and it’s not bad to have a favorite.
idk people are just always talking about how under-appreciated phil is, and maybe that’s true for the youtube community at large and i’m always here for phil appreciation, but that’s not true within the phandom and idk why people still think it is.
also look at this cutie how can some people be so mean to and dismissive of him
