Re: IDB Book Club

I think, for better or worse, the way we categorize fic does revolve around pairings, so if there's no other, more prominent pairing, it's probably phanfic (e.g. parent!phan), but if you've got Dan and Phil and a different central pairing, it's likely to be categorized according to that pairing (e....

Re: Dan & Phil Part 69: our cherry blossom

Ok, I'm gonna list off a handful of bits I think are discussion worthy. Here we go! [*]1:06 Phil did A LOT for me here. Holy shit he looks so good with his hair back and that little bit of stubble. Fucks me up. damn yeah, he's looking really good lately, but especially in that clip [*]3:22 They spe...

Re: Dan & Phil Part 69: our cherry blossom

That was so good. The bed part killed me (why was dan squished up on one side of the bed? insert 'you know why' gif). And the 'pornography' part. And the full-body shot of Dan in the romper because... reasons. I loved the reiteration of part of the show being them showing their real selves and talki...

Re: IDB Book Club

I agree that if it starts with a "I think they do this" or some framing thing like an "imagine" I wouldn't consider that fic. I do think there are stylistic differences; I looked back at the one I was thinking of, and I think it's notable that it doesn't have a title and there's less attention to c...

Re: IDB Book Club

I often see people on phanfictioncatalogue or places like that trying to find a fic with x plot, and the answer is 'oh that's this hc here.' Some of those might be false identifications or the seeker might be misremembering what it was, but some register in the seeker's memory as being a fic becaus...

Re: IDB Book Club

I think the term phan fic implies that both dan and phil need to be in the fic in some capacity, right? My opinion would be that it could definitely included a platonic relationship, and even romantic/sexual relationships with other people, as long as there was some sort of relationship between dan...

Re: IDB Book Club

I guess on the other side of these things, there's the question of if both Dan & Phil need to be in a phanfic, and if they have to have any particular kind of relationship. I think overall it's a less interesting question, but does come into play with phanfic blogs that don't include fics that incl...

(I just got back from overseas and missed 10 days’ worth of videos.) I mean, Emily has always been a talented storyteller and her editing is instinc...

Love the outfit on Dan, he looks great. Really great. I'm pumped there's a gaming video tonight. Not only because I'm excited for a gaming video (which I am!) but also because that means there shouldn't be much of a drought this next week since they've still got to fit in Phil's vloggy video and the...

Re: Dan & Phil Part 69: our cherry blossom

I do wonder if they do share the revenue of all three channels at this point. It would help to explain how Dan can get away with posting so few videos compared to Phil (generally). Obviously, his subscriber count is higher so he earns more from the videos he does post, and the gaming channel brings...

I found Shannon a year or two ago through Rose and Rosie (who I found through deppy), and I liked her a lot ( basically fell in love with her what ). I watched some of her videos at the time, then hadn't watched for a while, until a couple days ago when I stumbled across a music video she was in. Ye...

Re: Dan & Phil Part 69: our cherry blossom

The video that has been teased for the weekend is most likely the thing Dan wanted out video ideas for and I think it's gonna be a 'give the people what they want' themed trailer for II. It's a good way to sell the supposed audience participation aspect of the show. Yes I think you're right! So bas...

Re: Dan & Phil Part 69: our cherry blossom

So based on Dan's tweet, I'm guessing we're getting the video he tweeted out asking for ideas for. Or it could be II promo too. But based on the 'giving people what they want', I'm thinking it's gonna be the fan-suggested video.

Anyone on twitter know what the most liked suggestions have been?

brb watching Dan crack up at Phil saying he's a sausage in the evening kind of guy on loop for the foreseeable future
I literally watched that about 10 times before moving on with the rest of the video. Possibly new favourite moment of 2018

Re: Dan & Phil Part 69: our cherry blossom

It's highly unlikely to happen but I'd love a video where they try a makeup tutorial on the other person. So it combines the "I tried a _ tutorial" with "My best friend/bf does my makeup" and I'd want them to actually try and buy proper makeup lol. (they could always give the leftover makeup to bry...

"OPINIONS" was one of the first Dan videos I remember watching and really loving before I went into full stan mode, and wow I am weirdly really not a fan of the title change. I don't understand why he changed it to what he changed it to. Like, I get the "spoilers" one because it specifies the topic...
