Elise Mitchell is an Internet person. She used to watch from the outside, but two years ago she began a YouTube channel with a modest number of subscribers under the alias javastorm, a part of her life she has hidden from her friends and family so far. 

After a video of hers gradually goes viral, everything changes. She's recommended for a job she would have never believed could be hers. This, in turn, leads to meeting a couple of her role models, two suspiciously attractive vloggers called Dan and Phil.

As her relationship with one in particular blossoms, life's other disasters strike as there is turmoil with her flatmate and a potentially catastrophic double meaning of 'viral' is unveiled, but will she break under the pressure?


The story begins in late 2014 and continues until New Year's Eve. It won the second place prize for best danfic in the 2015 Phan awards, and I received second place for best danisnotonfire author.

{thank you very much to @virtuesintheverse for the gorgeous cover and also to @NotTheOrdinaryType for her incredible fanart and other edits}

I can't connect to the story as well with looking different and a different name. I dunno, I think it's just me I'll leave now.
