Not sure if you have answered this yet, but... how do you feel about the "official 10 years later design" for Danny, Sam and Tucker (there's a video on youtube, I think)? I personally love Sam and Tucker's, but I feel... really bothered with Danny's. Perhaps because it's too... superhero-ish? (the insigna on his chest has always bothered me since day 1). Am I the only one that feels this way? I always considered Danny to be a kid trying to do his best rather than a real superhero.

I actually haven’t talked about this yet!

I agree with you, for the most part. Tucker’s design seemed really easy for Butch, since he didn’t play around as much, but that’s fine because the two designs were really good. I agree with him that yeah, Tucker would likely have his own corporation, and the more advanced tech he has is really cool.

With Sam, I wasn’t too sold on the Black Widow or Laura Croft comparisons. Sam’s her own character, not just some action chick (not that either of those characters are, but it doesn’t fit her.) I did really like the second and final designs, though. I feel like the second design would work really well for casual wear. I can definitely see her going kind of hipster as she gets older, and while she’s not just an action girl, she was always the most into the ghost fighting, so the final design works, too. I also thought it was cute that she had Maddie’s goggles.

Danny…I don’t have too much of a problem with his design, if I don’t think about it too hard. Buuuuuut I also do agree with you.

I wasn’t too thrilled with the Captain America comparisons and such. Danny never was like that. I can still somewhat accept his design because that’s just his ghost form. I never considered DP a superhero show, but Danny did refer to himself as a superhero. That’s the way he saw himself. I would prefer if he was able to change that view to fit what he’d want to do more, but if it’s only in ghost form, the design alone is fine.

I’m not especially fond of the hair, though that’s more of an aesthetic thing. The suit…looks cool, and it’s not like it’s something I could never see Danny putting himself in. The weird thing is the whole “using ghosts to power his suit” thing.

What’s the purpose of that exactly? I mean, Danny’s already op af. He doesn’t really need to steal power from the ghosts he captures. That sounds kinda…messed up, if you think about it. I mean, can you imagine him using Johnny or Kitty or Poindexter like that? Seems unnecessarily cruel. What’s more, the suit needs power? For what? What’s his suit doing that he couldn’t do before? Is it for the thermos itself? The thermos didn’t need to use ghosts for power before, as far as we know. And would the thermos even be necessary anymore? He’s been doing this for awhile, and I get the feeling most ghosts would know not to mess with him by now.

All of those are mostly nitpicks, though. Design wise, I don’t think it’s that bad.

My biggest complaint is that Butch only gave him a Phantom design. That’s where I completely agree with you. He’s putting all the focus on the superhero element, which wasn’t what most of us were watching the show for. He keeps comparing it to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and it gives me the impression that in his mind, Danny has gone full time superhero.

I think we all know he didn’t want that.

I would’ve definitely felt better about the design if we’d gotten a human form of Danny, too. I would prefer to see him as more of a peacekeeper than a superhero, but if that’s how he wanted to see himself, I wouldn’t complain. He deserves a life of his own, though. He deserves to work for NASA and study space and all those things he wanted to do.

Danny Phantom shouldn’t be a superhero show. The characters don’t work for that because it’s not what they want, and it’s honestly so much less interesting if it’s just about beating up the weekly bad guy.

The logo I’ve never minded, though. I think it could’ve been incorporated into the plot better, but Sam designed that thing for fun when she was 14. I can see a kid going “you’re a superhero! You need a logo!” Again, Danny even calls himself one. Sure, the logo mostly exists to make Danny more marketable, but I’m fine with it.

But yeah, Butch clearly wants this to be his Captain America, and that just…isn’t Danny. Sorry, Butch, but if DP came back as just a Marvel clone, I’d be bored to death of it.

Obi-Wan to Anakin, at least once a week during his training: I HOPE ONE DAY YOU HAVE A PADAWAN LIKE YOURSELF

Obi-Wan after a few months co-parenting Ahsoka: DEAR GOD I TAKE IT BACK

Hug Again

I promised my mama
I would be home again
But staring at infinity
Messes with my plan
If I had been better
If I hadn’t run off
Then I could hug her again

The lions took us
Far into the stars
Surrounded by infinity
So far from home

I promised my mom
I wouldn’t dissipear too
But sitting in infinity
Messes with my plan
If I had been quiet
If I had said goodbye
Then I could hug her again

The lions took us
Far into the stars
Surrounded by infinity
So far from home

I promised my parents
I would be gentle
But fighting with infinity
Messes with my plan
If I had said no
If I had been cautious
Then I could hug them again

The lions took us
Far into the stars
Surrounded by infinity
So far from home

I promised my friend
I would be back for him
But captured by infinity
Messes with my plan
If I had been stronger
If I had stayed with him
Then I could hug him again

The lions took us
Far into the stars
Surrounded by infinity
So far from home

I promised no one
I would be home
I was summoned to infinity
Part of my plan
I couldn’t of helped it
That they came too
Now they have people
They can never hug again

The lions took us
Far into the stars
Surrounded by infinity
So very far from home

“The Beatles headed for their manager Brian Epstein’s NEMS headquarters in Whitechapel where Michael captured them ‘messing about in the office’. Of particular note is the map on the back wall – the pins denote the various destinations of the second half of the band’s first full UK tour which would begin the following Saturday, February 23rd.” - Genesis Publications

I’ve only been reading fanfiction for about 2 years now but I’ve never found one that was capable of making me feel every emotion. It’s amazing how fast this story has become dear to me. I don’t know how you do it @mushi0131 but your stories always leave me speechless. I hope you don’t mind but I decided to make a playlist of your Capturing Her Damaged Heart Nalu fanfic!

I’ve actually seen people do this before and honestly it just seemed like a lot of fun! I don’t know if anyone has already done this with this story but if they have, I hope it’s okay that I participated as well. If not, please let me know! You say the word and I’ll take it down ASAP. Here are some songs I personally thought captured the essence of Capturing Her Damaged Heart:

Mess Is Mine - Vance Joy

Santa Monica Dream - Angus & Julia Stone

Ophelia - The Lumineers

Willow Tree March - The Paper Kites

Way Down We Go - Kaleo

Little Lion Man - Mumford & Sons

Hush - Angus & Julia Stone

Broken Crown - Mumford & Sons

Nothing Arrived (Acoustic) - Villagers

To Whom It May Concern - The Civil Wars

One Red Thread - Blind Pilot

Blue Monday - Flunk

Broken Window Serenade - Whiskey Myers

Through the Valley - Shawn James

Arsonist’s Lullabye - Hozier

To Be Alone - Hozier

I Found - Amber Run

Clementine - Sarah Jaffe

Hold Back The River - James Bay

Another Story - The Head and the Heart

Your ability to bring these characters to life and give them entirely new personalities and ambitions is incredible. Trying to write a fanfic, trying to write in general, is not an easy task. I thank not only you but all the writers out there for putting in so much time and effort to create such amazing stories that we as readers will always treasure. It might sound over dramatic to some of you but writing can change the world. Writing has the ability to motivate, inspire, change people’s minds and change people’s lives.

So, to all the fanfic writers out there, continue to inspire, motivate and change people’s lives through your writing. I’ll be here supporting you. I appreciate you and I thank you for sharing your wonderful stories!

As promised, though rather unexpectedly, here are my thoughts on the big, hairy, ghost wolf who became Danny’s first ectoplasmic amiko.

I already talked about Wulf’s plot significance, but I had mentioned that I wasn’t really sure what his story was. He’s pretty unique among the ghosts we see, and I couldn’t quite figure out if that was just his ghostly form or the result of something that happened when he was alive.

Well, I’ve taken my time to think about it (and talked it over with my sister, ofc), and I think I’ve finally managed to piece some things together.

Hear me out you guys- space lesbians. 

Heyyyyy um. This strikes me as something Shiro has thought to himself in the past. The line just feels…weirdly practiced to me, and a little out of context. Sendak’s not broken; he’s captured. Maybe his arm got messed up, but I wouldn’t go so far as to call him a “broken soldier.”

(“He’s already defeated you.”)

So yeah. This scene breaks my heart because it implies that Shiro has internalized this idea that he’s been broken, and that he can’t “hold out forever.”

We see this kind of “broken” rhetoric again a couple scenes later: 

How much of this conversation actually happened? How much was a hallucination? Either Shiro is arguing with himself, or Sendak knows exactly what words will push Shiro over the edge. In both cases, it’s quite a revealing moment for Shiro’s character. 

Now I’m gonna’ go cry.
