    Summary

    When Dan gets the opportunity of his lifetime to be an in-office writer for one of the biggest newspapers of the country, he ups and moves at the blink of an eye. But he finds that, with such a big space to find inspiration, he struggles to do what he feels he was born to do - write.

    Everything feels like it's hanging in the balance - his job, his flat, his friends - until he meets a particular man in a cafe and everything around him suddenly changes.

    Will Dan find love in the place he never intended, or will everything fall apart just as he is building a life for himself?

    Summary

    Phil Lester likes working at the little cafe he's been at for awhile. It's nice, calm, and he feels accepted for being gay there unlike what he knew before.
    When the cafe's owners bring in a new piano player to entertain on Friday nights, Phil finds his world thrown upside down by the stranger who's captured his attention (and who the owners think he has a crush on, which he does not thank you very much).

    Summary

    After losing a promising new job at the BBC, Phil’s life seems to be falling apart around him. Moving in with a friend back in Manchester, he’s unsure what’s next for him. His days are plagued by anxiety, and once again he falls prey to the same ghosts from his past that stole his youth. Half the time he feels like a lost, scared, little kid. The other half, he’s scraping by in survival mode.

    After a while of successfully lying low in his makeshift home for underprivileged young adults, the resurgence of a violent presence from Dan’s past destroys any semblance of peace he might have found. He’s forced to take on a leadership role, to confront his identity, and to go to any lengths to support and protect those close to him.

    On the run from his ghost, Dan finds Phil battling his own, and he can’t help but offer a hand.

    ~•~•~

    Uhhh a weird, mildly introspective, fic about trauma, society, hurt/comfort, the inner child, and gay romance.
    While I’d (modestly) say that topics are covered with taste, please check the tags before reading.

    Summary

    Just a small collection of short, pure fluff fics. I wrote these a few years ago, so they aren't great but they're good for the vibes I swear :) Each fic is based off of a classic Christmas song.

    ~~ They stayed silent for a while longer, thinking that this was the very definition of happiness. Being comfortable with someone you love doing something you love, Dan was thinking.~~

    ~~
    “…Goodbye.”

    “Phil, you already said that.”

    “I know. I was just hoping that we could make this last longer.”

    Summary

    “I’m nervous,” she admits. “But it’ll be okay, right?”

    Dan smiles at her. “Of course it will,” he promises. “And if everyone hates you and you have no friends because your old ones have all left you for the popular kids, you’ll still have me. And Miss Margaret.”

    “Oh, great,” Sophia says dryly, cutting into her breakfast. “Good to know my only friends will be my geeky dad and the crazy cat lady that lives next door.”

    “We don’t say crazy, Sophia. She’s eccentric.

    Summary

    When Phil accidentally encourages his friend to sign up for a couple’s retreat to help her struggling relationship, he gets roped into going as well. The only problem? Phil isn’t technically part of a ‘couple’ and needs a date. He could ask the guy he’s been hooking up with from his office. But Dan hates that idea with a passion, for reasons that are completely and utterly platonic with no hidden jealousy whatsoever, and so he offers up a different solution.

    Summary

    Phil is a professional artist. There are some things he has always wanted to try, and with a motto like Try New Things, it’s understandable that he’ll go through with many of them. Painting on living, breathing, naked human bodies is one of those things.

    Unfortunately, he's chosen his good friend, muse, and crush Dan Howell as his subject. What could go wrong?
