- Generally, I either feel like I have a lot of thoughts I struggle to express or my brain is empty of everything but a lone tumbleweed rolling along to an echoing breeze.

- I identify as queer; every other label feels too specific to fit me. (Tangential: Attraction is weird to/for me because I think bodies are rather bizarre.)

- I love to read, but I only love to read fanfiction. I haven't been able to connect with original fiction since I was a teenager almost a decade ago. (In comparison, I haven't really written any fanfic in a decade, but I'm pretty obsessive about an original fic verse I've been slowly developing for, like, six years. Though it's not... something I'd probably ever share with anybody... because I suck and I can never settle on a plot... I just... adore my characters... *sinks away quietly*)

- I've been on the internet since I was nine, but I've never been interested in mainstream internet culture. I'm far more interested in fandom culture, trends, and history. (I probably don't fit in very well in this fandom lmao) Tangential: I don't have accounts on any social media besides Tumblr. (No Twitter, no Facebook, never had a Myspace, no snapchat, etc w/e.) Tangential x 2: I'm perpetually late to being aware of anything the internet finds interesting or compelling.

- I struggle with visual media, especially television.

- Between the ages of eight to twenty-one, I was really into manga (and to a lesser degree, anime). If I interact with it now, it's mostly for the nostalgia. So Deppy's weeaboo-ness isn't particularly interesting to me.

- I'm a shipper. It's an integral aspect of my being. I've always been a shipper. Some of my earliest memories, long before I ever discovered fandom or had a word for what I was doing, are of me quietly, privately, intensely shipping my favorite characters in my morning cartoons at, like, age 5. And in those most early memories, my ships were generally queer until the point where I began to think that it must've just been me who was interested in seeing same-sex characters having little romantic subplots with each other. (Oh heteronormativity, you screwed me up so bad.)

- I still love and listen to S Club 7
- I don't want a relationship as I prefer my own company and over the years have realised I am not emotionally stable to hold down a long term relationship.
- As a teenager I used to follow my favourite bands all over the UK and some of those memories are my favourite.
- I was one of the early generations of the Internet and had a online boyfriend when I was 14 who I did meet up with once.
- My best friend stopped talking to me because of my emotional issues. (I was too clingy and smothering)
- My Daughter was not planned and part of a casual fling but I don't regret her and she saved my life as I was very depressed before I found I was pregnant and was on their verge of killing my self. She's given me a reason to live.
- I've been to every Disney theme park except Shanghai
- My ex best friend was also a Prince and we used to go on spontatious trips in private jets and stay in lavish hotels.
- I read fan fictions
- My Birthday is the same as Phil"s and I'm 4 years older than him.

seems to be unusual for this forum, but i am incredibly extroverted
literally my crack is small talk, i actually get feelings of joy from having a good 30 second convo with a barista or total stranger
and am addicted to making new friends, esp. drunk people (i am talented at making drunk strangers have a deep and meaningful with me until i know stuff about them nobody else does, but just because im interested in other people's lives)

perhaps the worst procrastinator in the world, i have many procrastinating stories to rival dan's, i have never met anyone as bad as i am- its a running joke with everybody i know
and it sounds like im boasting when i bring it up, because its like 'hey look at that thing it took you weeks to do, i did it in 2 hours and did well' but actually its like 'i have a serious problem, maybe by telling you, you can somehow give me some advice that will save me from my crippling procrastination problem'

also am straight and identify as female

have only read one or two harry potter fanfictions, fanfiction sounds like the kind of thing i would absolutely love but i just cant be motivated to begin (i.e. im the kind of person that put off watching 'friends' for years, despite literally everyone saying i would enjoy it)

studying economics, living in a college thats part of the university (like a sorority idk you get the idea)

- Uhm, I had a phase in that I read a lot of crappy lovestorys, up to the part where they are quite explicit.
- I read fanfiction before I knew what that actually is
- I tend to cry if a film gets even just a bit emotional. I somehow cried during half of Captain Fantastic even though that really is no sad movie.
- I love these emojis (and their description/& code): :tackle: :heh: :thinkingoutloud: :ASs:
- This weekend I started to read from the first thread on and now on the fourth thread

- i can't cook anything because my parents never teached me, so i'm 17 and all i can do is instant noodles and mac n cheese, but i'm trying to learn some new things

- i actually enjoy spon videos like dragon city thing i just like watching their videos and i know they are making money out of it and that's even more cool cause i'm happy they're happy win-win
- i think i saw dan's hello internet when i was 11 or 12 but i didn't understand a word (couldn't speak english then) but i don't really remember if that's true or just my mind playing tricks on me
- team mystic but deep in my heart i'm instinct

I'm probably one of the oldest on here, having become a bit obsessed with Dan & Phil thanks to my daughters constantly playing their videos. I've been a fan for just over a year.

I'm in the midst of a mid-life crisis...in the past 3 years I've got piercings and tattoos for the first time and set up a fan site for my favourite band! I also neglect my family by spending far too many hours watching YouTube and anime :oops:

I'm so pleased that there's a busy forum for Dan & Phil fans...I've been a long-time forum user and love the format. I don't really 'get' Tumblr, even though I look at it every day!

-i turned half of my middle school emo (a long time ago) and now i'm the root cause of a lot of problems
-i'm straight, and i like to tell everybody that because apparently i give out the vibe (???) that i'm gay and some people aren't too nice lmao
-i have a cold for half of the year and its awful

hopefully that's good enough!

- My real name is Ella (surprisingly, it's not Derrick)
- I'm a very lonely British lesbian who is afraid of human intimacy
- I've been watching Dan + Phil since late 2012 (I found Dan's channel first which in turn led me to find Phil's)
- I'm not really "in" the phandom in the sense that I don't contribute any content or openly partake in discussions within the community (I have been intending to get more involved with the community however for now I guess you can consider this forum account a dirty little secret haha)
- I'm a big fan of cartoons/comics (Peanuts seriously ruined my life)
- I'm really awkward and I have an issue of pushing people away when they get too close to me because I'm worried they'll hate my real personality
- I'm 4'11'' irl (if I ever meet Dan and/or Phil I'll remember to wear the highest platform shoes I can possibly find)
- I'm double-jointed
- I'm horrifically afraid of dogs

that's about it I guess ✌️

yessss a thread entirely dedicated to oversharing, my one life skill i am l i v i n g

- i've never been able to maintain any sort of long-distance relationship because of my utter inability to answer messages quickly - it was funny at first (a sort of long running joke between my old friends) but it turned sour when i hurt a lot of feelings yeah, i'm that asshole so now my 2017 new year's resolution is to reply to everyone

- i am very confused about my sexuality but what 16 year old on tumblr isn't

- i never stay with a fandom for long, I get really into a fandom until my fangirl levels reach fever pitch and then one day my interest is just gone. Deppy is the exception, I've been into them since 2011 (they've become a sort of comforting constant in my life, I doubt my life would be the same without them). I nearly stopped liking :D&P: at the tail end of 2015 (because I thought they were becoming too commercial - with tatinof and tabinof and all) but once I saw just how hard they worked on those things my heart melted and I've been phan trash again ever since

Hi! I'm a nigahiga lamp who recently became Phandom trash. I usually just lurk in here and in GG without saying anything and have only recently made an account for both sites despite being around to read the threads for almost 2 months.

What about me?
- I'm a 20 year-old Asian girl, finally graduating from college (after all these stressful years). I also look like I am 12 due to my baby face and my shortness/height.
- I like anime and western cartoons, and video games. I am a woman-child with my entertainment preferences. I love puns.
- I have an irrational fear of the dark, using contact lens, and strangers. My not-so-absurd fears are cockroaches, spiders, and heights.
- I'm pretty desentisized to almost anything (e.g. can watch and talk about tentacle porn with a straight face in public). I cringe a bit at blood from real videos of people getting hurt/surgeries, though.
- I am of the impression that I'm aro ace, but if I ever become attracted to anyone, I'm probably demisexual, because I have no gender preference and I think I'd still like someone even if they become the opposite gender of what they currently are.
- I admit to being a troll half the time on live chats (YT, younow, etc).

Deppy-related info (what I learned and my experiences as a Phandom trash)
- I became a Phandom trash since I discovered their gamingmas videos. Also, I thought they were dating, only to go "bullshiiiiiiiit" when I learned they've denied they're together. I'll give them the benefit of the doubt despite being completely skeptic about it.

- I'm a new phan and it's unbelievably easy to find personal stuff, accidentally or not. I found the v-day video in less than 5 minutes of googling it (I wondered why everyone treats it like a cyber version of Voldemort), and saw screenshots of Dan's tweets with locations and pictures of a particular flat found in said location that matches D&P's apartment structure (I'm not even the observant type, it was really obvious). I thought that their address was supposed to be a well-kept secret or something. How come I stumbled upon it while browsing for D&P screenshots?

- I learned about Danosaurs and Phillions and that Dangirls are not a term for female Danosaurs. They're just Phil-haters. I also learned that despite dinof & AP's persona of being a dark soul and a bubbly soul respectively, it seems that IRL, it's kind of the opposite? Dan's the open book, the emotional, and the rather mild one compared to Phil who has the poker face, the hidden depths of weirdness (the dark-weird kind), and non-PG things. They can both be excitable like little kids, though, and quite sassy at times. And also, they're kinky af with those innuendos and hints(?).

- Might as well be married, platonic or romantic. Wouldn't be surprised if they were. They can also be quite problematic, especially with the infamous 2012 saga. Passive-aggressive savage right there.

- Some youtubers ship them, both low-key and outright.

- Dan as Carly Rae looked very similar to my half-English cousin. Dan's good-looking whether as a boy or a girl. Phil is also good-looking, but as a girl? I doubt it. Also, Dan's #llamarmy won Supernote 2012 and never gave back the trophy until recently (does that mean we'll have Supernote 2018) and that Phil has a world record (which was beaten, I'm not quite sure).

- Dan is a living meme, Phil is a pale bean.

- I wish my favorite youtubers (Ryan, Dan, Phil, etc.) could meet in-person like VidCon and do a collab or something.

That's all I can think up of atm (it's like 4am here I'm running out of brain fuel)

ah yes oversharing my one true talent. i've already shared a lot about my sexuality and gender, i identify as nonbinary and i like to think i'm pansexual but for right now i'll just say i don't label. i got into deppy back in 2012 i think. i know i watched dan and phil before actually getting into the fandom bc i had tagged them as phan and knew who they were apparently so. yeah. if you wanna know more you can see my post in how i found about them lol

i really like kids stuff, like paw patrol, sofia the first, my little pony, monster high, littlest pet shop, coloring books, pokemon (though is that really a kids thing anymore?), i also love collecting littlest pet shop toys and i used to have a wide collection of kids books that i refused to give up but i recently gave up a majority of them.

i'm a sucker for fictional stories about romance, specifically romance with a twist like disabilities or mental illness. i've met a few authors such as charles benoit, ellen hopkins and suzanne young. i'm very shy and introverted irl. i'm very bad about opening up about my feelings. however when you get to know me i don't shut up. about other things lol.

i have a history of self harm and i am diagnosed professionally with severe depression and mild/moderate anxiety. middle school sucked ass for me.

i have a huge collection of stuffed animals in the corner of my closet.

my birthname isn't skylar, it's actually raven but i prefer to go by skylar as my internet persona and gender neutral name i guess.

thats all i can think of right now

- I overthink literally everything and it destroys my life
- my first fandom was warrior cats and even though I don't read it anymore it still has a special place in my heart :D
- I met my best friend and soulmate because of said warrior cats fandom
- when I was younger I pushed my dog into a lake (it wasn't deep water!) and I still feel guilty about it
- I don't know why but I don't like caramel
That's the plan.

yay first post :) been lurking on/off for a couple months, and have been a fan of D+P for about six years, but I don't really get involved in phandom stuff most of the time.

- I'm bi, but no one knows, and I often feel like my sexuality is kinda invalid since I've never actually been with another girl
- I used to be pretty into Phan (and Larry Stylinson :oops: ) but I guess I'm kind of phan-gnostic nowadays
- I have way too much time on my hands b/c I'm the only one of my friends who didn't go to college, and I have no idea what I want to do with my life, and I kind of live in constant anxiety that I'm wasting my time by sitting around at home all the time, but I don't really know how to get out of my emotional rut and actually do something productive, or at least exciting
- I'm an INTJ!
- I love watching people pop cysts, blackheads, etc =P

Finally coming off of lurker status because 2017 has just been so good to us.
Weird things about me...
I don't eat food that other people (restaurants are okay) give me because I have a ton of food allergies, and one of my exes hid one in something he gave me to eat and put me in the hospital for 2 days.
I've been involved in various fandoms for about 10 years, but I think :D&P: might be the one that has kept my attention the longest.
I have never landed in a plane, but I have taken off 11 times :D
