wait like what the fuc k e mily i need more details.. what did they smell like....what did phils voice sound like.. give me the stats hunny!
ok so let me start off by saying that meeting dan and phil was the most surreal experience of my life and no amount of time could’ve prepared me for it in all honestea.. getting into the meet & greet was a lot smoother than getting into their panel the day before (which is a whole other story) and i had a friend waiting for me towards the front of the line so i was able to go join her thankfully. it was probably only around 30-45 minutes before i was next up to meet dan and phil and throughout those whole 30-45 minutes i was kinda freakin out cuz i hadn’t really thought things thru and i didn’t know what pose i was gonna do or what exactly i was going to say to them so i jus decided to go with the flow lmao. anyways essentially what happens is you step up and they cut off your wristband and then they ask you to stand on an X while ur waiting for ur imminent death. i was having trouble even breathing at this point because dan and phil were.. right there.. in front of my eyes.. only a few feet away..
and as if it wasn’t already wild enough, the moment when dan and phil both look directly at you and invite you to walk up to them is sure to have u nutting with anxiety. i remember making eye contact with phil first and him smiling and opening his arms to hug me and it was just the WEIRDEST FUCKEN EXPERIENCE as i walked closer and closer to him until both of our bodies made contact and i could feel him against me and i could feel his hands on my back and what the fuck.. and then i looked at dan and ignored him and asked if i could take a selfie with just phil! :) i’m kidding ofc, i hugged dan too and he was nice n soft even tho his hugs weren’t as good as phil’s. if i had to describe phil’s hugs in a few short words i would say they are warm and comforting and make you feel at home. whereas dan’s hugs are soft and sweet, but not quite as tight as phil’s. dan tends not to press his body against you while hugging you as much as phil does
their accents definitely sounded more prominent in person, dan sounded a bit more posh and phil’s voice sounded a bit lower, but there weren’t any major differences. their voices were both very soft and genuine tho and the vibes they put off were so genuinely kind and good hearted. being around them firsthand like that is just further proof of them being just two very authentic and humble human beings, in my opinion
also imma be honest, my mind pretty much went blank as soon as i went up there to meet them so i didn’t get the chance to say much other than explaining to them what pose i wanted to do and what i wanted them to sign and just how much i appreciated them, and it didn’t help that people were ushering us along pretty quickly and only allowing us a few seconds with them unfortunately :( nonetheless, it was an incredibly surreal experience and something that i had been wanting and wishing for for ages, so i couldn’t have been happier that one of my dreams had finally come true
o btw everyone wants to know what they smell like but uh they don’t smell too strongly of anything? maybe some cologne if anything but there was no particular smell that stood out to me (altho i will say that they smell similar to each other which is typically what other people who meet them say too)
last thing, phils fuckign smile irl is the cutest most heartwarming thing i’ve ever fucking seen what the fuck heck when they both walked out from behind the curtain phil was smiling so hard and it was like that one smile from the festive ditl when he’s playing with that spiderman thing that climbs the string to open ur blinds.. plus dan looks softer in person than he does in pictures and videos its great they were great
