18 times Tumblr proved it has ZERO CHILL when it comes to Dan and Phil


Don’t mess with these Phans. They will chew you up and spit you out. And we totally get it: Dan + Phil = SQWEE!

However, there is a natural kind of energy that ebbs and flows like a glorious tide of Phandom (and yes we’re sure as heck going to be using that pun until it’s rinsed dry because it’s 100% appropriate to do so and because we just love us some Phan, ok?)

And right now? That Phan energy is OFF THE CHARTS crazy for one very good reason…

7. Some predictions were proved wrong…

Silver linings, eh?

8. And then there were those that just had they’re theories reaffirmed.

9. Which leads us nicely on to this awkward moment…

10. But mostly it was this.

And who can argue with that logic?

11. Plus this person that was willing to go that extra mile…

12. …and the friendly Tumblr surfer that was willing to give them some sound advice:

13. Questions keep being asked.

But we need answers, dammit!

14. And people are calling it.

15. Not everyone was convinced it was all sunshine and potential puppies though:

What? How! Where?

16. Because of this:

17. And basically:

18. But some of us still believe…
