    Summary

    "Is everything ok?" The tall guy stops. The elevator starts to close. The guy reaches for the door and it opens again. He looks into Phil's eyes and it’s strong and focused and confusing.
    "Yeah, no, I just forgot my phone downstairs. I'm not sure where. I'll go down and look for it, sorry."
    "Ahhhh." The guy sighs sympathetically and seem to take Phil's important trouble very seriously. "I won't ask if you remember where you last put it."
    -
    Phil works at a motel and Dan is a guest who comes and goes. There are many thoughts to think and many delicate conversations to have. And always, the desire to find the person who will make you amazed in the long and confusing journey of existence.

    Summary

    In the twilight of the Russian Empire, the younger son of Czar Nigel Lestov finds an unlikely friend in a kitchen boy with a very different past. Philip Lestov has no idea what is to come, this future with his new friend stretching out as far as he can see, and Daniel Howlov gets a glimpse at a world so far from his own.
    Ten years later, the czar and his wife are dead and their older son is left to live with his grandmother in Paris; far from the new regime that wants the Lestovs dead. The young tsarevich Philip has gone missing while rumors fly of his survival. The dowager Empress has offered a reward, ten million rubles for her beloved grandsons return, a reward that does not go unnoticed by now conman Daniel Howlov and his close friend, former Duchess Cornelia. When they come across a man with no memories and a resemblance to the prince, the two hatch a plan.
    Followed closely by Kolya Petrov, an officer set on completing his fathers mission, and the mystic Rasputin, who wants nothing more than the death of the last Lestovs, they must journey to Paris with their fake prince. Instead of a reward, they find something much more unexpected waiting for them.
    Dan counted on a way out, not falling in love.

    Dan had never looked at someone the way he looked at Phil. It was that type of teenage infatuation that only ever happened in the movies.

    Summary

    Due to a minor incident that happened in the past, Dan Howell and Phil Lester, two ex-bestfriends, are now adults who hate each other. They want to be as far away from each other as possible, but the mysterious forces of the universe seem to have other plans for them. One day, the unenthusiastic duo grudgingly find themselves trapped in the world of an uncanny tower. Deadly creatures, magical plants and ominous doors that lead to unfamiliar places await them at each floor. Some doors lead to forests while some transport them to snowy mountains. Surviving is hard, food is scarce, and one mistake could prove fatal. In this disastrous situation, will they be able to resolve their past conflicts, or are they fated to fail? Can they revive the unshakeable trust they once had in each other to survive in a world that appears to be dead set on annihilating them?

    Summary

    It's Phil's first week of his final year of university, so really, he should be used to it by now. He should be able to behave normally when the cute guy down the hall is stepping out of the shower at the same time he's entering the bathroom.

    Evidently not.

    Summary

    The day I was born the doctors pointed out to my parents the intricate circular design on the inside of my left wrist. I was claimed. Neither of my parents was claimed, but both knew what it meant. Somewhere out there, or maybe not even born yet, was a person destined for their newborn son. They named me Daniel James Howell.

    Summary

    Dan Howell and Phil Lester lead anything but normal lives, but they were content with the direction they’d taken and happy with their current situation. But soon, they begin to realize that things aren’t right anymore; they’re not in the world they should be.

    “That’s because you’re ruining our fucking lives, you sadist,” Dan said, scowling at the ceiling. He seemed to be ignoring the fact that his insolence would have consequences.

    “What stupid trope are you putting us in next?” Phil asked wearily.

    “It doesn’t even matter, does it?” Dan said, “They’re going to keep writing it as long as they want. They’ll find a trope.”

    “But only if people read it,” Phil said.

    “Then don’t read this stupid, overblown story!” Dan yelled at the ceiling, “You’re enabling this horrible author. You’re making us suffer.” While Dan was speaking, Phil had a realization.

    “All of this…” Phil said in horror, “All of this dialogue we’re giving. We’re helping them shill this story.”

    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

    “What is that, Latin? You strike me as the kind of guy who would know Latin, to be honest.”

    Phil rolls his eyes. “No, I don’t know Latin, I’m not that pretentious."

    "Could've fooled me."

    "Ha ha. It means, ‘Even in Arcadia, there am I.’ With I actually being Death. The whole message is that, even in the perfection of the most flawless utopia achievable, you still can’t escape death. Utopia is impossible, because mortality is inescapable.”

    Dan lets out a slight chuckle. “Jesus, that’s dark.”

    “Right, and I have no reason to be dark.” His voice is dripping with sarcasm.

    “Well, that’s fair. And it’s not like I can’t relate.” He raises his glass. “To forgetting the fuckery of mortality for a little while.”


    A man whose life is consumed by its own ending, and another desperately trying to escape the same descent. When haunted pasts collide with inevitable futures, what do they have left of themselves? And just how different really are the roles these two play?

     

    Even in Arcadia, there am I.

    Summary

    Written for the Phandom Reverse Bang 2021

     

    Dan started his own dog bakery after a trip through Pinterest gave him the idea of baking a cake for his family dog Colin. The bakery is a success and Dan loves the fact that he gets regular customers coming in all the time to order cupcakes. One customer, in particular, comes in every day and goes by the name of Phil. But Phil never brings a dog with him...

    Why?

    Phil is a werewolf and likes eating the cupcakes himself.

    Summary

    "His notebook is divided into five columns, as much as he can remember. I’m with Dan. I’m not with Dan. Dan is far away from me. I love him, but I shouldn’t. I love him, but I can’t. Dan Howell; an impossible boy turning up in all variations of impossible dreams. The whole reason. The loss of something that you never quite found in the first place."

    Or: Phil works in a coffee shop. Or at an animal sanctuary. Or at a university. Maybe he's a Youtuber. Maybe he runs an editing firm. Sometimes he's in the 1920s. In all of these places he has dreams. In all of these places he is in love with Dan. It's just trying to work out which time is the right one.

    Summary

    All his life, Dan has wanted to have the chance to be a parent someday. He would be the best parent that ever existed, he was sure of it. Fostering might not be the most traditional way on the road to parenting, but Dan's dead set on doing it anyway. But, well, it would be easier with a co-parent, right?

    Summary

    Dan’s not normal. Why?
    He's not human, he has a mysterious ring, and he hates Phil Lester. They have a strange past, one filled with bullying and avoidance, but when Dan turns into an incubus, everything changes. He struggles with his identity and cries himself to sleep most nights, yearning to be normal. And somehow the universe makes it worse by bringing him and Phil together - in the most literal sense.

    Summary

    This fic is based on a brilliant work by wordsongs called When It Rains It Pours (which unfortunately has been deleted). There will be several plot deviations, and the text and dialogue will be quite different, but I can’t take any credit for the storyline.

    "Phil's only gone for one weekend.
    Apparently that's all the time it takes for everything to fall apart."

    Basically this is how I imagined the story would go as an established relationship fic instead of slow burn. The result isn’t really any less painful.
