Hey so is Dan in the Phan Elf AU going to have some kind of tragic backstory? I feel like an element of darkness can add more to the relationship with DnP and maybe the void that Dan has in his heart can be filled with the sunshine thats Phil.
The most tragic thing is when someone’s darkness comes from within for no particular reason. I think that’s what Dan’s personality will be like… like, there’s no concrete reason he’s like how he is. Idk honestly I haven’t thought about their backstories enough haha. But yeah I’m trying to fit their characters close to how they are IRL, and as far as I know Dan doesn’t have a tragic backstory really (yes, he hated school life, so maybe that’ll translate somehow into this AU). Either way, the sunshine that is Phil does him good :)
