Pairing: Claire Dunphy/Phil Dunphy
Fic Title: I Bet You Look Good On The Dancefloor
Genre: Romance, Humor
Why This Must Be Read: Because Phil and Claire are just so weirdly sweet on the show, and dollsome completely gets their dynamic. I love how-they-got-together stories and the thought of sixteen year old Phil having the flu but still making the effort to go to the prom with Claire just hits my romance button just right.
The first time she danced with Phil (and after sixteen years, it’s usually hard to remember the first time she anythinged with Phil), he threw up on her shoes. In the back of her head, this has more often than not seemed like a fairly accurate summation of their whole relationship, especially when he’s forgetting to take out the trash or calling Dylan “my brotha from anotha motha” or getting mesmerized by Gloria’s magnificent boobs.
