Phan (Dan and Phil)
Dan and Phil changed everything for me, I can't bear to imagine what would've happened if I didn't click on one of their videos. At the time, things where going horribly and I was convinced that my parents,sibling and my friends all hated me and I was getting suicidal thoughts, the only thing keeping me going, was the internet, more specifically Dan and Phil. I kept thinking to myself 'they promised it would get better,' and I trusted 2 complete strangers on the internet, more that my actual family, if they weren't here for me, then I wouldn't be here at all. Thank you for not giving up on me Dan and Phil
Dan and Phil are without doubt my favorite Youtubers. I remember over the summer I had been going through some really tough times and they would always be there to cheer me up. One time I had been crying a good amount because I had an absolutely crappy day, I was watching their videos and I kept thinking, "This will be the first time you guys don't cheer me up," but I clicked on one of the Phil is not on fire videos and I couldn't stop laughing. They've taught me so much, make me laugh and smile when I thought it would be har to, and have been the only people able to cheer me up. I love those two nerds, they mean the world to me.
And and phil are the best I have been watching them for 2 years now and they have literally changed my life its actually amazing. The phandom is everywhere and I love scrolling threw tumblr for ages just looking at all the different stuff its actually quite funny and it keeps me amused.
Dan and Phil change lives, they do. So many people underestimate the power of media and YouTube, people underestimate the Phandom. Dan and Phil are real and I think that that's one of the reasons people connect with them so well. Over 8 years they have shown us their lives and hoped that we liked them even though they were absolutely terrified of being judged. Dan was a college dropout because of this no one believed he could actually accomplish anything. Phil was bullied, - if you have ever seen any of Phil's videos you'll find that so hard to believe because he is an absolute angel - as you can imagine being bullied is horrible and it makes you feel like you're not worth anything but Phil kept going. They're just normal people who make such a difference to people's lives.
Here is an example from a tweet that dan posted "when people get shaky during their speeches I just want to drift us to them like a ghost and gently hug them so they know it's ok"

Dan and Phil have changed my life for the better. They have made my life significantly better with friends and at school so I wish I could one day pay them back all for what they did. Thank you Dan and Phil! (By the way their books and stage shows were amazing! )
Dan and Phil have changed me. They showed me that it's okay to be different and a bit out of place in the world. It's great to be different. They both make me laugh weather it be just because or when I need it. I love both of them, their individual personalities make a great duo. Even though I see them through a screen, I feel like I'm seeing them in person. They truly are one of the very few things in this world that make it brighter. Dan, Phil, the Phandom. All of it.
Dan and Phil are two of my favorite people on the internet, and the fact that they're always together and even have their own gaming channel magnifies how much I love them! I can't help thinking they'd be perfect for each other because they're such good friends and are so cute together!
In all honesty, I was going to vote for the anime fandom.
However, after seeing the 'phandom' on this list I had to vote for it.
These two nerdy British guys have helped me more than anything with funny videos. I know, crazy right? I don't get how these two people, I don't really even know, have managed to indirectly help me through bad times.
I don't know how and I don't care how.
I am forever thankful.
I absolutely love those two so much. They're hilarious and made me laugh so hard whenever I watch their videos. I swear, they have such a close friendship they could be couples and we wouldn't even know the difference.
They give the best advice and whenever I meet a new person who likes them I feel like I already know the person. Them and all there fans are just so amazing and I don't know how my life would be without them
I just bought their book recently. It was worth the money! I love Dan and Phil! They are our precious cinnamon rolls. - Pegasister12
Dan and Phil are so inspirational and have done so many great things. They are truly my role models and make me happy every single day.
They are everywhere. Either posting about their fandom or also a part of another fandom. Simply bring up the name Dan and Phil and you can hear the rumbling in the distance.
I love them so much. (I WOULD SHIP THEM, but Dan is mine). I started off playing around with them, and now I am a hardcore phan with hardcore phan friends. I absolutely LOVE the sims series, and sometimes my family just has to dil with me binging them (If you get that reference, you are awesome). They taught me not to cry, but to craft. They are super funny and I now understand what it means to be a fangirl. - TheWiseOne
Before I started watching Dan and Phil, I thought it was stupid. My friend made me watch one of Dan's videos and I was instantly hooked.
They don't understand. The cat whiskers, they come from within...
These two are the best. No matter how they feel they always make us smile. We love you!
Dan and Phil are everywhere, and that should be appreciated, even in other fandoms they pop-up. We love them!
No doubt in my mind that we are the strongest and craziest fandom on the Internet
Dan and Phil is the best thing that ever happened to me
Dan and Phil are the best. They have changed so many lives and deserve nothing but the best. Dan and Phil are idols.
Dan and Phil! How do I start to explain them? They are funny, weird, and awesome little cinnamon rolls!
I'm not even part of this "phan"dom but I see more things about them then my own fandom to be honest
These nerds are one of the best things that ever happened to me
This is true. Some of my "friends" say "they're gay ew they're horrible" but no they've actually made me so much happier and first of all, they haven't said they're gay and WHATS ACTUALLY WRONG WITH IT okay sorry just ugh at homophobes rant ovER
