…“Man wouldn’t it be funny if Danny Phantom did the dab every time he made an appearance?”
“Dude I wish!”
Out of the shadows a figure emerged. Smiling cruelly, she waved her green hand and in a flurry of smoke repeats her catchphrase.
“So you have wished it, so shall it be…”
He was on his way to school taking the aerial rout, when Desire decided to block his path. She looked like the cat that ate the canary. Raising her hand she blew a big puff of smoke in his face before he could even ask her what she was doing. She laughs evilly and flies away.
Nothing happened. Ok. Whatever. He’s already running late. Phasing into the empty bathroom he transforms. A strange tingle runs up his spine. He pauses. Ok. That was weird. He joins his friends in the halls.
“Hey Danny, you ok?”
“Yeah dude, did your dad want to test another invention on you?”
“No, it’s Desire. I think she did something to me but I’m not sure what.”
The two fully human friends look at each other. Then back at him. The bell rang and they made their way to class. Twenty minutes into the lesson and Lancer starts calling on students.
“Mr. Fenton, please answer the problem on the board”
Danny sighs resignedly. He gets up and goes to the board. Oh. He actually studied this one. Yeah he’s got this. He picks up the chalk and solves the problem. He knows he’s got the right answer because Lancer makes a small sound of approval.
He finishes the problem with a flourish, turns on his heal swiftly, and “mic drops” the chalk. All the while Lancer waits patiently. It’s not every day his most enigmatic and problematic student knows the material. He’ll let him have this little moment of victory.
He finishes his little spectacle by positioning himself for the greatest dab to end all dabs. He dabs. Instant regret. He can feel his ice core stir. The transformation began. A flash of white light. The whole class gasps. Lancer stumbles back. The white rings travel up and down his body. He can’t stop it! Blue jeans and white tee shirt are replaced by black and white jumpsuit.
Danny Phantom, frozen in his dabbing position, slowly looks up and blinks. Eyes as big as satellite dishes. He can see his friends are floored. The class is stunned. The only thing heard in the classroom is the bee trying to get out through the window. It feels like eons have passed. Then, a single cry shatters the silence
“LORD OF THE FLIES!”
Everything comes crashing back to life. The students are in an uproar. Poor Danny is frozen in place. He pales further. His mind has shutdown. Stuck in the dabbing position, he can only stare at the chaos. Tucker finds his voice again.
“Well, at least now we know what Desire did to him”
From then on, thanks to a certain redhead basketball player Danny Phantom became known as Dabby Fentum
