I'm attempting to figure out a way to make our character pages shorter. Since Daniels is the longest I thought I'd experiment with his. If you have anything to add or delete or change or whatever PLEASE feel free!!!

|List of Daniel's blogs|
Daniel first disclosed specific information about his parents in Drinking Problems, where he revealed that growing up, although they were not loud or abusive drunks, he was "violently ignored" by them. He also said that the bad times were when one of them would stop drinking, because the other one of them would get better and he would finally have a parent, but then, all the arguing would start again. At the time of this video he claimed they had been sober for two years, however, much later in the series, it was confirmed they had, at some point, began drinking again. His parents' alcoholism meant that Daniel spent more time with his grandmother, which he did until she died.
Daniel graduated from high school in June 2006 and had a graduation party which Bree was not allowed to attend. When summer began, he taught Bree how to make video blogs and was the one who set up her YouTube account.
Like many fans, Daniel began to investigate Bree's religion and decided to follow her around to record her actions, even after Bree had asked him not to do so. As Daniel investigated further, he became increasingly worried, and decided to break into Lucy's apartment to look for clues, where he found pictures of himself on her computer. He became worried and posted a video on the subject. His worries finally made sense to Bree, causing her to begin to question her religion. After an unsuccessful attempt to excuse her from the Ceremony, Bree's parents were taken away by the local Deacons, and Bree went on the run with Daniel. As a result, Daniel dropped out of junior college, where he was taking film classes, and he left his job at Gas 'n Eats to accompany Bree.
On the Run
After going on the run, Daniel and Bree stayed at a motel where they were soon warned by Gemma that they were being followed. Having received Gemma's warning, Bree and Daniel did a half-hearted search of their motel room, but found no one. Gemma once again posted a video telling the two that they were being watched, and this time Bree heeded her warnings and fled. Although Bree said she overreacted, the duo found a different motel room. Soon, Daniel became angry at Bree for not taking their plight seriously enough, but the two quickly made up and Bree gave Daniel an impromptu Thanksgiving feast. After coming back from their feast, however, they saw that their motel had been ransacked. Once again on the run, they abandon their car and found themselves on the streets.
While they were in desperate need, Jonas began posting videos offering help. Although, Daniel was extremely skeptical, he asked the viewers to vote on whether or not to trust him. The viewers voted to trust Jonas, and Bree chose to stay with him. However, Daniel chose to go home. Daniel ultimately changed his mind and joined Bree and Jonas at Christmas. The next day, though, Bree went missing. After finding out that Bree had gone to find her father, Jonas and Daniel hit the road to try to find her. They were able to locate Bree, however, her father was gunned down by the Order and the trio was forced to flee the scene.
