Oh it's me again!

Just had to come on here and say that one of my favourite WIPs 'L'Histoire Française' by danfanciesphil (who also wrote Birthday Sex) is now complete and I REALLY enjoyed it - it's a teacher AU featuring some beautiful writing, slow burn, amazing sexual tension, a little bit of angst but not too prolonged, wonderful side characters (Teddy & Tyler :love2: ) and lots of fluffy romance (the French language is so romantic...ahhh).

If you're enjoying amaaf then go read No One Else But You by lizzyboo - it's so good and I ache for Phil but it's such a supportive relationship they write, it's amazing.

Ooo nice I’ll have to check that one out @alittledizzy dizzy. And L’Histoire has been on my radar for awhile.

I came here to recommend we will find a way through the dark by our very own @whatdoiknow it’s their first phan fic and they do an absolutely beautiful job showing D&P’s partnership on one of Dan’s bad days, from Phil’s perspective. I’ve read quite a few fics with a similar premise over the last few months, but this one really digs in and shows growth and communication, a bit of vulnerability, but ultimately lots of strength. I love the insight into how Phil deals with this. http://archiveofourown.org/works/13644408/

This was so good, hope this is the first of many phanfics @whatdoiknow!

I've spent a wet and miserable day reading some of the wonderful Valentine's Day fics that have just been posted. They're all going to be shared on this Tumblr I believe: https://phandomficfests.tumblr.com but I have to especially recommend 'a stranger in a bar on valentine's day' by iihappydaysii which is a wonderful 13k 2009 E-rated fic with a mystery twist! https://archiveofourown.org/works/13660113

Hi hi hello, I have two recommendations for fics that finished recently, both by AgingPhangirl.

Ships that pass in the night
Dan and Phil are YouTubers. The catch? They’ve never met, and Phil doesn’t want them to. 60k (the author said there will be an epilogue but the story in it's self is finished)

Act Naturally
Phil has a quiet life studying film at university and some small dreams of being a director he's mostly ignoring, but his whole life is turned upside down when his roommate signs him up for a game show and he meets the famously arrogant movie star Daniel Howell. 20k (Jimmy is also in it, always a good selling point)
Do you make mistakes or do you make a change?

I found one that I wasn't sure I would like but it was so good. A take on smut that I haven't seen, probably because I didn't think I would be into it but it's dan realizing that he might have a foot kink. I think the reason I liked it so much was because Dan thinks it's weird but Phil doesn't want him to think like that and the trust that they have with each other is really lovely.

One second by Knlalla. I normally shy away from first person perspective but I was hooked halfway through chapter one and I couldn't put it down until I had finished it (rip my productivity at work yesterday).

just once to be lifted strong by The_Blonde... oh my... it’s not often that a fic reduces me to tears but this one had me weeping on the train on the way to work.
Like everything else she writes it’s haunting and beautiful.

hard times, baby by queerofcups - (12k, completed - time travel fic with a truly fantastic use of the trope to tell a real story about current dan and phil)

(Not) Knowing What's Best by DryCereal (fantastic fic about phil while dan was in hospital in 2010)

and a couple tour goodies:
long way down by phanetixs (tour fic - date night in leeds)
for two by winstonlives (tour fic - lovely banter as they order room service and wind down for the night)

Thanks for the rec dizzy! (And ickle) also agreed on the others being super fab. Ickle's gave me all the feels. Love me some hurt/sick/comfort and especially Kath being the (strong) voice of reason.

I've been enjoying the PhandomFicFest's Tour Fics, and was especially enchanted by natural high by @CallOfTheCurlew, which describes in a lovely way how Dan feels after the first night of Interactive Introverts, and how Dan and Phil take care of each other.
