I’m supposed to be working on two other pieces right now and I also have uni work to do but I figured I could take a few minutes to scribble out something so at least I feel a little better about that post. Sorry, it’s messy and whatnot, but I just had to get it out of my system so here you go.
—————
The floor was smooth under Maddie’s bare feet, chilling her toes and sending pangs of pain brought on by the cold through her ankles. She had once fallen into a lake during the last weeks of winter, and the water had been so cold that she couldn’t move, couldn’t breathe, couldn’t think. The feeling in her feet was exactly the same, and Maddie knew that if she didn’t hurry, the cold would seep through her flannelette pyjamas and sink into her bones.

The smooth tunnel drilled itself into the bedrock that surrounded the lab. Almost perfectly cylindrical beyond its entrance, the diameter was an exact two metres, and the metal tube itself reached six metres into the earth. Maddie knew every inch of the thing - it was her crowning invention, after all.

There was a button on the wall, about halfway in. All she had to do was push it.

A mouse, white with eyes that visibly glowed, was perched on top of the portal’s frame. He watched Maddie with that unwavering green gaze, and she watched him right back.

"Who are you?" she asked, shifting from foot to foot in an effort to dispel that numbing pain.

The phantom mouse broke eye contact in favour of cleaning his whiskers, and Maddie eventually realised that he wasn’t going to answer her.
She took a step towards the portal.

"Are you really going to do that?" the mouse asked, staring at her again.
"If I don’t, then you will, right?"

A tattered white ear flicked in annoyance. “What do you mean?” he said. “I’m your mouse, remember? I’ve already done it.”

so I have some fanfictions you should read I hink you'd like them 1. Phantom of Truth by haiju 2. Lab Rat by anneriawings 3. Friends Forever by discordiansamba 4. A Gift of a Heart by alexa piper 5. Green Jacket Red Sleeves by lunarmothim 6. Alibi by myaibou !!! There that's it for now please read them and make a post to share because they need more love and are relly cool i think you'll like them!

Uh, hi?

Well, to tell you the truth, I’ve already read all of those stories. I can still use this opportunity to ‘make a post’ about them though.

Phantom of Truth
"Locked away in a secret government lab with Phantom as her subject, nothing stands between Maddie and the truth… except, perhaps, herself."
I enjoyed this story quite a lot because it revolved around Danny and Maddie in a limited setting. The dramatic irony was intense. It’s certainly one of the more outside-the-box while still appropriately distressing Phantom-Maddie fics I’ve ever read.

Lab Rat
"The look on my parents’ faces – eager, curious, somewhat hateful – wasn’t exactly hard to give away their intentions. I knew what they were going to do to me even before Mom snapped on a pair of rubbery, white latex gloves."
Whoa, this certainly takes me back. Lab Rat was actually one of the first DP fics I ever read. I had literally seen one and a half episodes of the show and decided to go check out some fanfiction because the premise of the episodes looked sufficiently creepy. Lab Rat got me hooked on the angsty possibilities of Danny Phantom. It’s simple yet spine-chillingly horrific, and drew me into the fandom.

Friends Forever
"Since becoming half ghost, Danny has faced all sorts of enemies- from the ghost king to his own evil self. But there are other ghosts out there, beyond the confines of Amity Park- and not all of them play by the same rules. When his mother organizes a vacation in order to reconnect with her son, he finds himself coming face to face with one such ghost. (No PP)." 
This story impressed me right from the get-go. Unfortunately, it’s been on hiatus for over a year now. This fic reads like a horror movie, but with Danny and his ghost powers factored in. Definitely creepy. Certainly nothing like anything I’ve encountered from this fandom before. I really enjoyed reading the content that’s been posted, and although chances of a new update appear slim, I can always hope.

Green Jacket Red Sleeves
"Two secrets: Danny’s mysterious injury and Phantom’s bizarre ectosignature. In her quest to find the answers to both, Maddie finds out more than she could ever have anticipated. Revelation fic, no PP"
We all love a good angsty revelation fic, right? That’s pretty much what this is. The great thing about this story is that when you’re reading it, it feels new. Like you haven’t read this type of revelation before. I personally really like it because the characters behave realistically and breathe life into what has really become a cookie-cutter story idea in the DP fanfiction archives. Definitely worth a read.

Alibi
"He was Dash Baxter. Football star. King of Casper High. The world was supposed to have been his oyster for at least another decade. So how did he end up in the basement lab of FentonWorks working for the dad of the kid he used to beat up in high school? And how far would he stick his neck out to protect that kid and whatever secret he was hiding from the government? NOT slash."
This is one of those stories you read and for a long time afterwards, everything else seems a little bland. This story is super clever and interesting, and takes a bit of a look at what might happen to Dash if something were to derail his future plans. The main plot of the story centers around The Guys in White, and how Danny and co discover a previously unknown side of Dash when they enlist his help to keep Danny safe. This story really is genius.

A Gift of a Heart
"A bank robbery goes wrong and Maddie takes a bullet straight through her heart. She dies. Or, at least, that’s what she thinks."
So, I’m not really sure if this is a joke or not. Or maybe you just failed to check the name of my main blog, which in that case, I guess you’ve made an honest mistake.
I’m flattered that it’s on your list, but please don’t ask me to review this story.
Why?

I wrote it.

BONUS:

Have a great day, anon!

(And to anyone who decides to check out any of the stories in this post, happy reading!)

Oops I angst-ed.

The Paradox

lexiepiper:

Things had been going so well.

The Fentons had finally formed a truce with Phantom. It had taken them a while to accept the ghost’s relationship with their son, but Maddie and Jack eventually conceded that it wasn’t causing any harm.

Danny had finished school for the year, and with Phantom taking care of the ghosts, the human had managed to pull off a report card that rivaled Jazz’s.

It was Summer.

They were supposed to be enjoying it together.

That’s the funny thing about ghosts. Despite being post-human manifestations of consciousness imprinted on ectoplasm, despite having no need to breathe or eat or sleep, despite being something that technically wasn’t alive…

If hit with enough force with the correct weapons, they would react like any living being.

That’s the funny thing about ghosts.

Despite not being alive, they can still die.

—————

Somewhere between saving the world and completing high school, Danny had developed an unlikely relationship with Pamela and Jeremy Manson.

They pulled some rather impressive strings to clear the kid’s arrest record (it turns out that being arrested for busting Dash Baxter’s jaw could be rather detrimental to Danny’s future career options when the kid’s main goals were either space or the police force), and in return Danny was more than happy to help out whenever they needed.

Shivering in his knitted Christmas sweater, Danny shifted from foot to foot on the Mansons’ doorstep. “Where did she even get a flamethrower?” he breathed, staring at a flaming tree that lit up the frigid darkness.

"Uh, the shed?"

Danny shot a glare at the young man. “So, why is she torching the blasted tree?” he grumbled. “For your information, Sam loves nature. What in the Ghost Zone did you do?

The sleek stranger raised a singed eyebrow. “You even talk like a ghost,” he remarked with a sneer that made Danny want to blast him in the face.

Jeremy Manson chose that moment to intervene. “Daniel, this is Kyle. He’s-“

"The son of your business partner, right? Sam mentioned you were having them over for dinner."

The blond nodded, straightening his back and tugging at a glinting cufflink. “Yes, that is correct.”

"So what’s with the fire?" Danny asked, holding up a hand when Kyle opened his mouth. "Jeremy called me here, so I’ll have it from him, thanks."

"Samantha was fairly well-behaved, and even agreed to wear something that wasn’t black. But Kyle here asked to see the greenhouse after our meal, and ran back inside with chunks burned out of his suit, screaming that our daughter lost the plot."

"Well, it’s not the ghost hunting," Danny observed, pointing towards a figure beside the flaming foliage. "Look, that’s a human weapon."

Turning to the man in the gently smoking suit, Danny crossed his arms over his chest with a frown. “Right, what’d you do?”

"Nothing!" Kyle exclaimed, holding up hands that were blistered and a lovely shade of cherry-red. "We were going to the greenhouse, and walked under a tree with mistletoe, so I tried to kiss her and she got really mad."

Closing his eyes, Danny took a deep breath before glaring at the man with newfound venom. “Did she say no?”

"Well, yeah, but there was mistletoe-

Danny grabbed Kyle’s shoulders, shoving him against the side of the house. “When a girl says no, she means no!" he growled. "What’d you do when she got upset?"

"Nothing!"

"She wouldn’t be burning the tree if you backed off when you should have!"

"Gee," Kyle muttered, shoving Danny off him. "Keep your mitts to yourself, Phantom, I’m not a ghost or anything. I told her that so long as there was mistletoe, I wouldn’t give up, no matter how hard to get she played. That’s when she fetched the weapon!"

Clenching his hands into fists, Danny shoved them into his pockets and reminded himself that the only bad guys he was qualified to hit were already dead.

"My name’s Danny," he spat, "and maybe if you treated her less like an object and more like a person, I wouldn’t have to clean up your mess!”

As he stomped towards the fire, Danny’s mouth curved into a smile as he heard Jeremy say “By the way, my daughter already has a boyfriend. Now, I believe that your parents are ready to go home.”

Following the footprints in the snow, Danny wound his way towards the tree whilst successfully avoiding Pamela’s various garden beds. As he neared the tree, the ghost boy grinned. “You know, when I asked if we could roast marshmallows and chestnuts over the fire tomorrow, I didn’t quite mean like this.”

Sam started before glaring at her boyfriend. “Well, you didn’t factor in a pompous prat, either.”

"No," the halfa agreed, slinging one arm around her shoulder while using his other hand to pry the flamethrower from her grasp.

Sam let go without a fight. “Why does every guy have to be a jerk as soon as they come by a bit of money?” she sighed. “They think the whole world belongs to them!”

Danny shrugged as best he could. “The poor ones can be real jerks as well,” he reminded her.

Sniffing, Sam pressed her face into his shoulder. “Did I overdo it?”

"Nah. The only reason I didn’t shoot him was because you’d already singed his stupid hair and ruined his stupid suit."

"I also burned his stupid, roaming hands," the goth giggled. "But now I get why you blasted Dash in the face last year."

"Mmm," Danny murmured, angling his head so that Sam’s skull fitted in the hollow of his neck. "Well, he’s going home now, so can I put out the tree before it spreads?"

Sniffing again, Sam wiped her nose on the sleeve of her jacket before nodding. “Did my dad seem angry?”

Tugging off his gloves, Danny held out his bare hands. With a whump, the tree was suddenly buried in a massive mound of snow. “Not at you,” he assured her, “but I should probably apologise for being rude to his business partner’s snooty son.”

"Probably," Sam agreed as Danny replaced his gloves. "We wouldn’t want my parents thinking that you’re a delinquent now, would we?"

"What, like that’s worse than being half ghost?"

"You’re an idiot."

Danny grinned, pulling the girl close again as steam from the doused inferno rose beneath a gibbous moon. “Yeah, but I’m your idiot.” Tilting his head forwards, the halfa pressed his mouth against hers for a handful of heartbeats. “Now, let’s get you inside so I can go home. Dad’ll be having a fit right about now because Santa won’t come until we’re all asleep.”

Sam gasped in mock horror. “Oh, no! We wouldn’t want that, now, would we?”

Chuckling, the teen took his girlfriend’s hand. “He’d suck me into the thermos for sure,” he joked, pressing another kiss to her cheek before starting back in the direction of the house, “but I think I can spare a few more minutes to spend in your company…”

Smirking, Sam pulled her hand away, shoving Danny into a snowdrift. “Go home, you dork.”

The halfa shook his head with a grin, pulling her leg so that the girl fell beside him with a squeal.

"Merry Christmas, Sam," he whispered, lips barely brushing her forehead.

Smirking, she grabbed him by the hair and kissed him hard on the mouth. They pulled away, breathing hard and sending little puffs of steam into the freezing air. “Merry Christmas, Ghost Boy.”

 this is beautiful  I love it ! Idiot Kyle :l  and the danny and sam parts waaaaa :3

   *high fives because we share otp* thank you so much and merry christmas Lexie!

I know that I don’t reblog a lot of creepy things, but I definitely enjoy creepypasta stories and strange wikipedia articles. I know that a lot of people on this site are really into that sort of stuff as well, and I’m following a few of you, but I was a little bit disappointed to not see much about the poor girl whose friends tried to sacrifice her to slenderman.

Basically, the twelve-year-old girl was playing hide-and-seek with two friends in some woods when the ‘friends’ stabbed her nineteen times and left her for dead in an effort to please slenderman. The girl (whose name has been kept private since she’s a minor and her family doesn’t want harmful publicity) managed to survive because they left her to bleed to death alone - despite her injuries, the crawled to a nearby path, where a cyclist came across her and called an ambulance.

I’m sure a few of you know about this already, but the family is asking for some help.

The attack caused serious physical damage as well as psychological, and the girl’s parents have asked for people to “Extend blessings and love to the victim and her family by sending a homemade heart made of paper, fabric, felted wool. As you make your heart, infuse it with your prayers, Love and Light. These hearts will blanket the walls of this 12-year-old’s room, sending her a nurturing message. Be a part of surrounding her with beauty and kindness, so that she may be reminded that the power of love is greater than all else.”

The address for the hearts is:
Hearts for Healing
P.O. BOX 407
Waukesha, WI 53187-0407

More information can be found on their gofundme, including a picture of the hearts received so far stuck on the girl’s wall, and a fundraiser for anybody who can donate to help with the medical bills.

Posting a purple heart to a young girl in desperate need of reminders of the goodness in the world is a very small act of kindness, and one that I’m sure a lot of you could do without too much hassle. I just think that it would be nice if our community of fans got together to help this girl’s recovery. We horror fans generally interact online and share creepy stories and gifs through a sense of fun and having a good time (and I guess being mutually terrified as well). I’m not saying that this incident is our fault, but I’m hoping that we can make a positive difference. Now that something truly horrible has happened, I was hoping that whoever has the time and resources to do so can join in this simple act of kindness. We might enjoy learning about things that aren’t exactly pleasing, but this girl currently needs a reminder that this world has as much light in it as darkness, and I firmly believe that we can join together as a group to contribute on her road to recovery.

By the way, here’s the picture of her wall so far:

How about we try to at least double that amount?

Lexiepiper:

Here’s something I was working on about a year ago what are your thoughts on it?

“Mum, could half-ghosts be possible?” Danny blurted out as he helped her with the dishes.

Maddie started, staring at her son. “Of course not, Danny. Ghosts are creatures in limbo, halfway to heaven and halfway to hell.”

The halfa flinched. “Yeah, um… What would someone have to do to be a ghost instead of going straight to heaven?”

Maddie shrugged, scrubbing vigorously at a saucepan stained with ectoplasmic residue. “Nobody really knows that.”

The teen sighed, seating himself at the table. “Have you ever seen a ghost… you know… change?”

The huntress inclined her head. “Plenty of times.”

Danny straightened in his seat. “Really? Any angels?”

At this the woman shook her head. “Ghosts always do bad deeds, Sweetie. We hunt them so that they don’t have the chance to become bad enough to turn into a demon.”

The halfa slumped his shoulders again. “Oh.”

(There, feeling a bit better now?)

I WAS UNTIL I REALIZED YOU SENT THIS LAST NIGHT AND I DIDN’T SEE IT I AM SO SORRY

Sounds like the power quandary—a being who is nigh unstoppable can’t be controlled if they become “bad”. The question is whether to destroy them before they can reach their full potential or trust they will make the right decisions and pursue a “good” path. Kinda like the choice Clockwork was forced to make with Danny.

Except Maddie’s choosing to believe it’s impossible for ghosts to “be angels,” thus removing the moral dilemma and allowing her to act without reservation aaaahnnnnnnnnngh~

It comes with the occupation

Summary: Danny finds himself set up for what will be a truly spectacular dinner.

Ghost language has been one of my headcanons for the longest time! (Why else would Jack bother to invent the Ghost Gabber?) But I can't reblog the posts because my phone's not working properly! (But really, I just had to send this ask because I'm so excited that other people share one of my oldest headcanons)

SAME

like it’s been my fav headcanon for the longest time and i’m so freaking glad it literally exploded

(more ghost quirks please)

i should make a page of all my fav dp headcanons and ghost quirks. if only i could remember them all. school has destroyed any and all memory skills i used to have (i really should just keep an idea notebook with me at all times)

I don’t even remember if I made the background transparent ahhhh sorry if I didn’t I’ve run out of time I’ve gotta go to work

holy crapioli this is amazing!!

Writing Commissions

Okay, so I’ve decided to open writing commissions. To cut a very long and very complicated story short, my car is pretty much dead. I need to buy a new one as soon as possible, and by ‘new’ I actually mean ‘something that’s cheap and reliable’.

The commute to university takes me two buses and a tram, plus a bit of walking. This takes about two hours. In contrast, a car takes me roughly twenty minutes. This difference in time allows me more study when I need it, and an opportunity to exercise if I don’t need to do extra study. In addition, I need the car for work. Unfortunately, I work as a tutor. The school year is soon coming to a close. That means I’m going to run out of work in just over a month, and I’m finding it very difficult to find a retail job.

So. Commissions.

Examples of my writing can be found on my fanfiction account. Some of those pieces are rather old, but the newer ones are a fairly good indication of my current abilities.

Prices ($AUS)
$5 base fee for anything under 1000 words
$10 for 2000-5000 words
$20 for 6000-10,000 words
$30 for 11,000-15,000 words
$40 for 15,000-20,000 words

No more than 20,000 words, sorry - projects like that just get too big and take up too much time.

The only thing I don’t write is smut. However, I’m not very good at writing humour either. I’m fine with everything else, but reserve the right to deny any requests that make me uncomfortable. (People tend to say that I’m fairly good at angst, if that floats your boat)

I’ll write for pretty much any of my fandoms - my main ones are listed on my tumblr about page. If something’s not listed, you can always ask me if I’m familiar with it!

Contact me through my tumblr ask box. For lengthier messages, my submit box and fan mail are both available. I can’t access this site every single day right now due to my current schedule, but I should reply within three days. If I haven’t responded in that time frame, tumblr ate your message, so you’ll have to send it again. From there we can organise all of the details.

I really hope that some of you will take me up on this, since my work as a tutor stops in about a month’s time!

"Ooh! So is he mutating into an alien spider? Or is it symbiotically attached…or a combination of both?" -Haikujitsu

It’s sort of a combination of both. In the story, the spiders are clones of a parasitic alien species that target perfect hosts, transforming and consuming them into horribly disfigured creatures. The only way to remove them is to kill the host or bring it to a death like state to trick the spider into detaching, however physical changes to the host may be permanent. The legs are able to extend to the host’s size once a spider is connected to the spine. Dave’s spider, Coral, is actually the original alien spider. After Dave and his best friend, Eric, accidentally release all the cloned spiders, Coral attaches herself to Dave because of instinct. What’s interesting about Dave’s relationship is that Coral targeted Dave because he’s the least suitable host, slowing down the mutations so that it’s a more symbiotic relationship rather than a parasitic one. However, Dave still suffers from certain mutations, such as fangs, extra pupils, heightened senses, and conflicting instincts. Dave and the story still need some work, but hopefully it will become something for everyone to enjoy. Unless you’re arachnophobic oops.

SONGS 3, 22, 27!

Tumblr completely obliterated my reply goddamit and my internet keeps derping

3. A song that reminds me of summer

That’d be “Dance Call of Midsummer” by Home Made Kazoku, from the times I was a fucking weeaboo

22. A song that moves me forward

“Move your feet” by Junior Senior. Although, it’s more like ‘gives me energy’. 

27:A song that breaks your heart

Umm, “Hurt” by Christina Aguilera. Relatable.

Didn’t Armin score like the highest on the written portion?
I haven’t found a favorite character yet. (I’m scared I’ll pick one and now they’ll die, because as I’ve seen from Tumblr spoilers, AOT likes to kill their characters off…) and if/when I do, it’s gotta be one with a big ego. I learned over the years of watching anime, I somehow favorite the characters with the big ego…
