Summary: (For the phandombigbang 2014) All Dan wanted was to get drunk, really. Have a good time, meet a few new people. He didn’t really think about getting involved with someone as dangerous as Phil Lester (someone as cold, as pale and, well, as not alive), and he definitely didn’t think that one trip out to a bar would change his life forever.

Warnings: Blood, sex, references to violence, alcohol mentions (briefly) and overly sarcastic dialogue

Dan’s having a good night, great in fact, until he catches sight of PJ storming across the room in his direction.

Honestly, he has to repress the roll of his eyes at the sight of his best friend walking purposefully towards him. He’s probably about to receive a lecture, or be told that he’s urgently needed somewhere else (Dan’s not sure how PJ manages to always end up making his videos at the worst times possible, or why it’s Dan that he constantly pulls in as an extra), and that kind of interruption is the last thing he needs right now. Knowing that he’s probably about to be torn away from the gorgeous boy in front of him, who he’s just getting started with, is enough to make him want to throw the glass bottle in his hand at the approaching man.

rating: PG-13
warnings: swearing, death of a minor charater prior to plot timeframe, implied anxiety (though never addressed at any great length)


'it is a simple but universal truth that to love, and to be loved in return- is the best feeling it the world. But i feel it should also be noted that those lonely, or experiencing unrequited love, tend to make terribly brilliant things.'

Renowned author phil lester visits a pocket village on the outskirts of london to sign copies of his new book, where he meets bookstore clerk dan howell, who ran away to london; away from his problems and towards the now probably dashed dreams of something grand. Endings and beginnings clash with the starlight, finding both the sleepless and the dreamless.

author’s notes:  i have been trying to write this for about 4 months (the google doc is still titled with raconteur-nm lmao) so consider this my long overdue renaissance, salut mes chers!

When Jake Howell was assigned to Phil Lester’s class, no one knew how big of an impact it would make.

Phil Lester watched as his last class filed out the door, most ready to start the weekend. There was one student that had always intrigued him, Jake Howell. Phil had met the boy’s parents, James Colburn and Dan Howell, and of course, the teacher had heard about their dramatic breakup two years ago.

Betas: ilovebooks-forevermerlyarf and my sister Leah who doesn’t have a tumblr ( I love you guys so much)

Word count: 6414

Rating: PG-13 

Warnings: Blood, swearing, anxiety, mentions of killing, death (kind of) abuse/manipulation, a little violence (I’m making it sound like an abusive relationship fic somehow along with the summary down below, it isn’t omg because my friend thought so but I’m tagging the last few just in case)

Summary: For a century now, humans had known vampires existed, and they now lived peacefully together. The vampires still liked their privacy though. A few made friends or even had relationships with humans, but those were few and far between; they were rare and special things.  Phil Lester was one of those few people who had a relationship with a vampire.  He was about to find out that his relationship had hidden consequences though.

Author notes: I’m not sure how I feel about this writing of mine, I think it turned out a bit wonky, but I’m still proud of it regardless! I can usually barely write more than 1k for something so over 6k is awesome for me! :) Thank you Emilie and all my other friends for motivation <3

AN: Thank you very much to my beta adoringphil and artist moreorlester, and to silverluminosity for suggesting the title. This is likely my last fic for the phandom, so I figured it was probably time to write that kitten!fic I’ve been promising for two years, right? :P It’s been real, phandom.

Quite how they talked each other into getting a cat, neither was entirely sure.
