Dasey Fanvideos Playlist

I’ve been looking for a fancy way to share my favourite videos on this blog and in the end I decided that the best way would be a youtube playlist, plain and simple. Here's almost an hour of tears. Ten seconds warning.

(All credit obviously goes to the makers of the videos. I own none of them.)

 Summary: Life with Derek is a half-hour comedy series about a modern blended family, with two type-A 15 year-olds, Casey (Ashley Leggat) and Derek (Michael Seater). Each episode is an alpha-teen comic war between two self-obsessed teenagers in a take-no-prisoners fight for control of their house, their school, and their world.

  • All episodes are standard quality and at least 480p. However, half of season one’s downloads are 240p because I had to rip them from YouTube. Those will be in three parts. I’m really sorry! S1 was hard as fuck to find tho, so if you have links to any of these episodes, it would be very much appreciated!

Chapter One

“So, you’re really going through with it?” Derek asked from her doorway. He stared at all of the boxes piled around her room and tried to keep a neutral face.

“Of course I am,” Casey replied, rolling her eyes. “I would be really stupid not to.”

“Almost as stupid as following some guy you’ve only known for one summer to New York instead of going to university,” he said with a slow smirk creeping onto his face. “Oh wait.”

Do you have any Dasey fic recs?


I decided to log in to my old FF account to go through all my history for you, and I kid you not, I read approximately 63 Dasey fanfics. That’s not counting the ones I didn’t add to my favorites list or the ones that are no longer in my alerts (and there were a lot). I read these when I was around 14 or 15 years oldI’m 20 nowso my reading taste has definitely changed. A whole lot of them are unfinished, so I’m only going to post the complete ones that I think are worth reading and/or extremely well-written. Here ya go!

There was a logical explanation for the situation she was in. Everything boiled down to logic if you worked through it enough.
