Re: Dan & Phil Part 79: calm down there bub

In rewatching The Tree, the charity spotlight stuck out to me. I feel like as a phandom we tend to think of Young Minds for Dan, obviously, and then for Phil, Make-A-Wish, presumably because they participate in people's wishes (and that recent similar one where I'm blanking on the name). Are there o...

Re: Dan & Phil Part 79: calm down there bub

That Barú brand must be real good if Deppy still buy it even after they betrayed Phil by only putting 4 fancy marshmallows in a box (a box which clearly stated that it contained 4 marshmallows btw) on May 21st 2018 . #notspon I'm on the fence between "they loved it and still buy it but didn't tell ...

Re: Dan & Phil Part 78: have the courage to exist.

Maybe it's just me, but it seems notable for Dan to share something that refers to them as "a couple" without saying anything about that/making it part of the joke. I guess he could have not noticed that, but a tweet feels more premeditated to me than things like "phanwedding" and "you and Dan are s...

How did I never know Martyn did music?? I bet that was another thing that made him the super cool big brother in a young envious Phil lmao.

Re: Dan & Phil Part 75: @philsthiccbooty

If demon just means believing that Dan and Phil are in a relationship, I'm confused how people can "be" demon though. How do you be a belief? And especially how can you be more a belief in particular moments as opposed to others? I'm easily confused by language though! This is an interesting questi...

Re: Dan & Phil Part 75: @philsthiccbooty

I don't want to sidetrack the conversation, but I think it's really interesting when people talk about Dan and Phil "being demon." I assume that "demon" started out as a derogatory term for the "craziest" of shippers, but the way I'm used to it now, in my (demon) circles, is to mean someone who beli...

Re: IDB Book Club

I think even more important (for me) than the different 'environments' or even 'physical characteristics' is the actual characterization and personalities of the dan and phil in the fic. No matter how good the writing is, I wouldn't be able to read a fic where, for example, Dan was suddenly a super...

Who wants to speculate about strangers-Dan's ex? I'm curious about what really happened with the breakup, what with him painting her as cruel and her acting cheerful and concerned on the phone, but I'm kind of more curious what she wants to get out of meeting up. Is there closure she needs? Is she t...

Re: IDB Book Club

This question is kind of too big on my reading and I didn't mean to write this much or this messy: I feel like different fics have very different approaches, even outside of the canon/AU divide. Some fic takes a sort of passive characterization approach, if they're not really about character arcs/in...

There goes my demonic theory. Damn.
It was definitely on my mind that Phil might accidentally have referred to Dan's bed as "my bed." Alas, not every demonic theory comes true.

Just to complicate my own point with the example of Phandom Fic Fests, I noticed that while the main guidelines include "features Dan and Phil as the main pairing" as I had quoted, in the FAQs we get "we only ask that the main pairing include Dan or Phil."

Re: IDB Book Club

Characterization: I do agree with @Templeofshame that characterization is key. We want Dan to feel like Dan and Phil to feel like Phil, and hair and eye color aren't enough. Of course, "feeling" they are in character is certainly subjective, and everyone has a slightly different idea of what their ...
