Dan has been doing ballet since he was little. Phil has been the boy next door. But they both grow up at some point. Dan and Phil have been friends for years now and Phil has never missed a single performance of Dan. He always makes him promise that he'll do great before the show starts. In return, Dan lets Phil play with his video games which doesn't bother him at all and he'd let him play even if Phil didn't watch his ballet performances. Dan was sure they'd stay together no matter what. He is so sure about this, he doesn't mind when Phil refuses to let him into his house when friends from his school are over repeatedly. He doesn't catch how Phil now calls him Dan instead of Danny. And he doesn't even think twice about why Phil never walks him to the bus station anymore to make sure his old bullies don't come back. It's not as angsty as it sounds, I promise.
