Dan Howell is your typical, run-of-the-mill "good boy". Controlled like a puppet by anybody and everybody. He wants that to change. But first, he needs help.

So, he meets Phil Lester, the boy with the lip piercing and the blue eyes that he can't help but call familiar. Phil's eager to help Dan change, but in different ways than expected.

Dan's afraid. Who wouldn't be? Doing anything and everything illegal, then seemingly never getting caught; it's terrifying to good-boy-Dan-Howell.

Though he just can't seem to back down. Why? He's got no idea.

Maybe it's the thrill of it all. Or maybe it's out of fear. Or even, if he can call it that, it's out of love. Whatever it is, it's mad, irresistible, entirely distant to every guideline Dan had ever been taught.

Yet, when ends comes to tie, and Dan's curiosity snaps him to insanity, Phil Lester turns out to be just not at all that he seems.
