Hi all! By way of introduction, I will share that I am a recent college grad and that I've recently started watching Dan and Phil again after a several year hiatus from regularly consuming YT content during my time at university. And now for the other things I wouldn't normally say as an introduction!

1. I work in politics in the US. I've been an active political participant since 2014 and now have a full-time salaried position in the field. I am working on a congressional campaign in a state where I am in the political minority (like 15% of our legislature shares my party affiliation). It's a frustrating and harrowing time to be doing politics, but regardless, I'm doing my best to affect positive change.

2. I am blind in one eye and have been since birth. My body just didn't finish developing my optic nerve properly and thus, I am blind in that eye and, as a result, am horrid at every sport where there are spherical objects that move at high speeds.

3. YT was the first community I ever felt a part of. That's something I would never tell anyone irl. I started consuming Youtube content at the age of 16. It all began with the Green brothers and Charlie McDonnell. I stopped watching for a long time, other than a periodic vlogbrothers video, during college as I was freakishly busy.

4. The only reason I met my best friend is Doctor Who. Nerds, we are.

5. I live in one of the coldest cities in the US. We are known for flooding and burning down at the same time.

6. Pretty sure I'm asexual.

Hello peeps.

-Besides Deppy I have an uncontrollable love for Conan O'Brien
-I personally can't stand Phanfiction. Not sure why, I guess because they're real people but I just can't do it.
-When I was 5 years old I used to drink my dirty paint water after I was done finger painting because I thought it would be like a magic potion a la Snow White.

hello everyone

-I hate avocado
-I love pineapple on pizza
-I worry 100% of the time if I've said/done something wrong
-I'm 27 but only started realizing last year that I might be genderqueer/agender

-I tend to be incredibly dismissive of things I don't know, so when I still lived in a student dorm and one of my housemates said "oh you like youtubers? have you heard of this dan howell guy?" and showed me some of dan's videos I hated it, thought he was incredibly annoying and ott, and refused to watch him and phil for a couple of months (somewhere after that it changed and I subscribed and 5+ years later here I still am)

-I very, VERY recently (as in, in the past 2 months) got officially diagnosed with 'intellectual giftedness', a thing I'm still not used to saying, and now I'm still in that phase where I'm learning to accept it and I keep finding myself comparing myself to others in terms of intelligence and critical thinking skills (which I never learned in school) and then worrying I'm being either arrogant, or dismissive of my own skills/intelligence.

-no but really, avocado is so gross and overrated and I don't understand why so many people love it so much and keep insisting on putting it on/in everything.

(I'd add that I'm bi/pan but honestly that's not really a thing I keep a secret, I just don't often see a reason to mention it.)

what a fun way to get started!

1. I'm the lizard queen, but I actually can't do anything. (+10 points if you get one reference./+20 if you get both.)
2. According to Pottermore, my Hogwarts house is Gryffindor, but I strongly suspect that I am in reality a Slytherin.
3. I still make up conversations and scenarios in my head before I go to sleep. Those are the happiest moments of my day.
4. There are currently three precisely worded, handwritten and over six pages long letters in my drawer that I cannot manage to post off because... I don't even know.
5. At the tender age of 21, I feel incredibly old.

Thanks. :) (You've got a really nice quote in your signature, by the way.)
And same - daydreaming during the day isn't quite the same as right before bed. I guess it simply feels a little more real when the harsh light of the day isn't pointing out the flaws of my imagination.

Same! Sometimes it doesn't work and I have to stuff my head with fic/videos/podcasts/radio in order to get to sleep. But if I can cruise my mind..... :thumbs-up emoji:.

Most of the fic I've been writing gets "written" during that time. Then I just have to do the hard part and make myself write it down later :).

Hehe, thanks ^^

Yeah, just lying in bed, closing your eyes and thinking about nice things makes them feel so much more real than they actually are.

Exactly, except that it's not fics but book plots in my case. Especially recently because I have a very specific idea and I am thinking I might be finally able to write it one day, which would be a dream come true. Having ideas and thinking about them is easy but writing itself is difficult.

same on the foot thing! though I can't walk that way. But I can turn my feet (one at a time) completely backward. That isn't normal, then??? Because I was wondering about that literally earlier today.

(also same on the 'constant fear of death' thing :( )

And yeah, the death thing sucks.

W'sup pals,

- I'm 18 and a first year nursing student *cries for help bc I'm abandoning all my pre work*
- I live in Sydney
- straight v confused about my sexuality
- I dabble on the piano
- My music taste is a mix match of everything and I'm content with that (but all time faves are Paramore honestly Hayley Williams ilysm)
- One Direction ruined but shaped my adolescence/high school years and I'm eternally grateful (but honestly they ded rip 1d)
- I love doggos
- Other fave YouTubers incl. kickthePJ, dodie, nigahiga, Wong Fu Productions, Jenn Im, Steal The Spotlight, CatCreature, TheLineUp and ToThe9s
- I've been a casual view of deps since 2012 when I discovered Dan through the JacksGap collab and then Phil through their interview with One Direction, but it was late last year after I watched TATINOF (which if I'm gonna be honest found kinda cringe but was v endearing and was v proud of how much work they put into it) that I became intrigued past being a casual viewer and started binge watching all the stuff I missed out on over the years and slowly just :garbage:
- Idk how I stumbled on idb but it was probs in the middle of April or something and I've been lurking since until now I'm so glad I did bc this community of people is just so kind and hilarious

Oks das it :D

HEWWO
(things you'll never say in getting-to-know-yous, right? that's one)

new viewer here! started watching deppy casually around november 2016, and religiously from.. april 2017? I think. anyway, awkward introduction:

-20yo medical student who goes against every medical advice ever
-like I live off caffeine and regularly forget to eat and when i do i avoid vegetables like the plague (that's probably common but everytime I read managements of diseases I feel like a hypocrite and will die soon)
-used to judge dnp so much for looking emo without ever watching their vids, thank you, my misguided younger self
-aesthetic trash even though it will give me no validation in life
-it just feels good to be in an abundance of aesthetic goodness man, give me those white walls and flowers and round glasses and pastel jumpers
-but my cactus is probably dead now bc i left it at home and forgot to water it before I left on monday
-it's 3am and i miss my cat
-oh and i have an Ao3 which is mendelssohnslieder, but only had like 1 phanfic published so yea

niiiiiice to meet you all :love1:

Long time lurker, with my final push to posting being Dans beautiful picture on twitter.
I also didnt want to post here till i read it all, and im glad i did, cause everyones facts are so amazing, and i kinda just want to spend a day with each person just listening to their stories. (borderline creepy)
And I was actually Very happy to find out there are two muslims here and 2 medicine students and one in nursing. Im in dentistry.
-I really wanted my username to be (obsessionfightsdepresion) but it exceeded the 21 letter limit. :cry:
-Im a lesbian, and theres no point in ever coming out so ive just spent A Lot of time convincing my mom that im a-sexual instead and telling her ill never marry. (cause even if i get in a closeted relationship, i cant actually have closeted children. So ive decided to just accept life and raise orphans/foster children)
- I read too much fanfiction its not even funny. Like i litterly sleep only 2 hours a day and consume crazy amounts of coffee to keep going. I take breaks between fanfictions to catch up on idb and only leave my phone when its a critical situation (feeding my cats/ feeding myself XD).
-Speaking of cats, I have five and all of them were stray babies i found in the streets and under cars.
-I dont know how avocados taste like but judging from the majority of opinions here, it doesn't sound like sth i want to try. :?
-I have no shame in staning Deppy. EVERYONE in my life is more than familiar with their whole life story and my obsessive love for them. I even make my own merch cause shipping to my country would be crazy expensive, but I still have to express this undeniable love somehow.
-This is the longest fandom ive been in, my love for them hasnt lessened even a tiny bit since day 1. im preety sure its because of this amazing and interactive community. Also i dont know how to tumblr so that probably why my other fandoms died a bit in my heart with no place like this to interact in.
