who's having more fun

drabble: interrupted by fireworks

notes: i wrote this after i watched both parts of them playing 14-year-old Phil’s game and got inspired by the music choices

After the tenth song on Phil’s old game that Dan recognizes after only hearing the first two seconds of it, he becomes aware of two things at once: First, he and Phil are giant nerds who should have probably spent more of their teen years doing fun teenager stuff instead of obsessing over video games so much that they can now name every single song.

Second though, Phil is the only person he knows (actually knows, random dudes on reddit threads don’t count), who also loves video games soundtracks as much as he does, listens to them over and over again after he finishes a game and is able to name the tracks afterwards.

Most of his friends like games as well, his Youtube friends all have their own gaming channel, but sometimes, in moments like this, it hits him that no one will ever be as perfect for him as Phil is.

“Find someone who has the same interests as you,” has been his go-to dating advice for years whenever he tries to give a serious answer, but he never realized how much he meant that advice. How lucky he is that the boy next to him sat down at 14 and created his own video game, putting all the same songs into it that Dan spent hours listening to on repeat during his teenage years.


He walks aimlessly around yet another maze that Phil created in this game, complaining loudly at each turn that he has to take. Phil laughs quietly next to him, his arm slightly brushing his, the side of their thighs pressing together. In the beginning, when they were just settling into their first apartment in Manchester and Dan said no to Phil being in his videos more times than he said yes, the secret touches held a certain kind of thrill for Dan. Now it’s a thing they do out of habit, Dan barely pays attention to it, only a small part of his mind still takes comfort in their smallest of touches.

“Oh,” Phil says as Dan enters yet another random room of the game.

“Oh?” Dan starts to ask, in the process of turning his chair towards him, when he hears the song coming from the speakers. “Oh,” he finishes softly.

Interrupted by Fireworks is playing, the song Dan still stupidly considers ‘theirs’, even after years of fandom interaction and “OH MY GOD WHO ELSE GOT SENT HERE BECAUSE OF PHAN” comments kind of ruined it for him.

Phil smiles at him. It’s not his usual video filming smile, it’s his cheesy “we’re gonna get married someday”-smile.

“You’re such a nerd, I should have known this would be in there,” Dan laughs, but it’s not his camera laugh either.

“Guess 14-year-old Phil just knew how to make all the boys swoon already,” Phil smirks.

“You’re an idiot,” Dan says, hitting him on the chest softly, but he lets his hands linger there long enough that Phil can close his hand around his wrists and kiss him.

It’s not heated and there is no intent behind it, but Dan will never not love kissing Phil, so he gets a bit lost in it, while Interrupted by Fireworks is still softly playing in the background. This might be the cheesiest thing they have done since Phil made him that stupid video in 2010, but Dan can’t bring himself to regret it.


“So,” Dan says a few minutes later, clearing his throat and trying to fix his hair. “I really hope you didn’t put anything important for the storyline into that room, because there is no way in hell we can leave that in.”

Phil just laughs at him and lets him exit the room without complaining. And if his lips look a bit redder and Dan’s shirt is a bit more ruffled for the rest of the video, no one has to know.

“dr. nikiforov are you even listening to me”

“did anybody ever tell you that you look really good in those scrubs?”

“yes. you did. like 25 times a day"

i know a lot about fear. you asked me if i’ve ever been scared on the battlefield. well, i was. when i was on the front line at one point, we were losing more men than we could bury. seeing things like that, it does something to your mind, fear takes over. one night it got so bad, i left. i got five miles away, then i realised what i was doing and i came back. no one ever knew. why did you come back? my men. my friends… however bad it gets you keep going for them… you don’t give up. fear has no power over you.
